12:02 pm
mettling in the 2016 presidential campaign and possible ties between russia and members of president trump's campaign. russia doesn't even have a top 10 size economy in the world. moscow has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. meantime, fears of a possible trade war between the united states and some of its allies are casting a shadow over the annual conference in quebec. g-7 leaders, including the host, the canadian prime minister justin trudeau and the french president emmanuel macron have been critical of the trump administration's policy. macron was all buddies with him weeks ago but no more. now confronting the president's rhetoric. mr. trump put steep tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from canada, the european union and other american allies. president trump will be skipping the climate change portion of the conference ducking out early to avoid it we're told. officially the white house line is it's so he can travel to singapore for a meeting with the north korean dictator kim jong un.
12:03 pm
let's get the latest now from our white house correspondent kevin corke who is live in charlevoix in quebec. >> shepard, good afternoon. we will begin with the russia story it was a curious suggestion by the president that the russians be reinvited to join the g-8. this drew some curious eyebrows in some corners in world leaders and other cases some pretty serious side eye. here is more of the president's suggestion earlier today. >> the g 7, which used to be the g-8. they threw rush out. they should let russia come back in because we should have russia at the negotiating table. >> now, most watching don't need the history lesson but for those who do russia was frog marched out of the g-8 for invading ukraine and annexing crimea as you pointed out among other disruptive and destabilizing behaviors. a spokes personal for the brits issuing a statement that reads in part before any conversations can take
12:04 pm
place about russia rejoining, it needs to change its approach. the president's arrival here comes amid tensions allies draconian u.s. trade policies will not only hurt workers across the globe it will hit particularly hard workers in the states. get tough talk met with equal force from french president emmanuel macron who tweeted. this the american president may not mind being isolate but neither do we mind signing a six country agreement if need be. now, the president did meet briefly with mr. macron earlier today although the white house tells us they are expected to meet a little bit for more lengthy bilateral conversation. also expected bilateral with justin trudeau, the canadian prime minister. that could happen here pretty quickly, shepard. of course, we will bring you a readout as soon as we get one. for now back to you. >> shepard: kevin, thanks. g-7 protesters promising a day of disruption. rick lesson that you is live on the streets of quebec
12:05 pm
city. rick? >> shepard, we're outside the national assembly where police with riot gear have lined up in anticipation of a planned mass protest here. the largest one of the day we're told. it was supposed to start now. we're told that there are -- throw is a small group of demonstrators headed this way, but we haven't seen them yet for the most part. this city has been fairly calm, perhaps in large part because the summit is actually 88 miles away. they scheduled it up there to try to minimize the disruption to the g-7 and the result has been a fairly quiet situation here in quebec city. there was an incident this morning where a group of about 100 protesters blocked a highway that leads to the bay. they faced off with riot police there. they set a couple of couches on fire. they were chanting anti-capitalist slogans. they did square off and there were a couple of arrests. the police eventually dispersed that crowd. >> my goal is to end. maybe it's a big thing for
12:06 pm
today. that's why we just tried to block the highway. >> the biggest event we have seen so far was last night we marched with a group of about 800 to 1,000 demonstrators from a nearby park out here to the general assembly. the national assembly building. many of them were clad in black. some of them cover their faces with masks and bandannas. they did set off flares and started small fires. when they reached this location, there were a couple of arrests last night according to police. this was nothing compared to what we saw here in quebec city in 2001 during the summit of the americans. there were 30 to 50,000 protesters who engaged in violent confrontations with police. they broke through security fences. they threw bricks. they smashed windows. millions of dollars of damage and hundreds of arrests in that incident. in fact, some store ownerrers boarded up here in the old city, shep, in quebec in anticipation of a similar event this time around. so far, fortunately, those
12:07 pm
boards don't seem to be necessary but we have a couple of days ahead of us. >> shepard: rick leventhal live in quebec city. white house reporter for the associated press ken, good to see you. >> good to see you, shep. >> shepard: on the russia part of this, reaction is in and it's pretty uniformed. chuck schumer one who has given a quote today, says the president's support for inviting russia back to the g-7 just after they meddled in the election to support his campaign will leave millions of americans with serious questions and suspicions. again, that from chuck schumer. and then from the republican ben sasse, this is weak. putin is not our friend. he is not the president's buddy. he is a thug, using soviet style aggression to wage a shadow war against america and our leaders should act like it. does the president -- is he aware of these matters? >> i think he is. the president feels like whenever you have an adversary it's important to talk to them. and i think that's what he was getting at this morning. but, you know, not only will there be members of congress
12:08 pm
who disagree with this, but also our allies around the world. and they will say that basically we're probably rewarding bad behavior if we allow russia back into the g-7, what used to be the g-8 without having them change their behavior. >> shepard: since the cold war, we have never taken such a stance as regarded to russia, have we? >> no. this is completely new. you know, we kicked russia out of the g-8 in 2014. and there has just been this view that, you know, they haven't changed what they were doing in ukraine. they have been very aggressive in syria. you know, we had this poisoning case in great britain. so, you know, the allies would say why would you allow them to come back into this group when they clearly have been disruptive around the world. >> shepard: they are widely believed responsible for shooting down commercial airliner that left 298 people dead there is a bit
12:09 pm
of disconnect there. the bigger picture concern is that the russians aren't coming back to the g-7. they have already said they don't wanting to. the bigger picture is united states finds itself isolated. practically speaking one against six at this conference. what does that mean for relations? what does that mean practically speaking? >> yeah, i mean, the president and his allies have said that america first doesn't mean america alone. but that theory is going to be tested at this summit. it's possible that we could have, you know, as kevin mentioned, a communique come down that's only signed by six of the seven countries, not by the united states. >> shepard: who cares? >> right. exactly. >> shepard: i mean, who will care about that? what does that change? the concern is down the line when there is a crisis are your allies going to be with you or not? there are a lot of people here in the states concerned about when you isolate yourself, when you, you know, slap on tariffs on
12:10 pm
allies under the guise of national security, that when you need help in a crisis down the road, those allies may not support you. >> who is going to the president to ask him to change his ways on this matter? anybody? >> well, have you some republicans are certainly concerned with this. you know, i think there is some advisors who would privately not like, you know, this idea of allowing russia back into the g-7, the g-8. >> shepard: privately, no one wants them back in except maybe dana rohrabacher and it doesn't matter what he thinks. >> that's right. that's right. but, you know, there -- the question is, i mean, i think the president sees this as an important venue to have an open discussion to have all the important countries at the table. and i think that was the point he was making. but there are a lot of people who just say that, you know, we are not there yet. we should not allow russia in. >> shepard: india has a bigger economy. why don't you invite india in there?
12:11 pm
all right. it's great to talk to you. thank you. i hope you have a great weekend. >> thanks, shep. >> shepard: breaking within the last hour. have you heard about this in the special counsel robert mueller has handed out new charges in the russia investigation against members of the trump team. including the president's former campaign chairman, who is already facing other criminal charges. we'll break down all of it with a former federal attorney. that's coming up from the fox news deck on this friday afternoon. glad to have you in. ♪ ♪ try new alka-seltzer pm gummies. the only fast, powerful heartburn relief plus melatonin so you can fall asleep quickly. ♪ oh, what a relief it is! but prevagen helps your brain with an ingredient originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. the name to remember.

12:17 pm
that room as the differences of opinion on matters of trade are striking, unusual if not unprecedented. but unusual for the united states to be the outlier. but the president says he can make a better deal and he will and he also says he will see what happens. breaking news president trump's former campaign chairman paul manafort facing new charges today in special counsel robert mueller's russia investigation. a grand jury today indicted manafort again and his long time associate constantine on conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstruction of justice for trying to tamper with witnesses in the mueller case against him. prosecutors say manafort's associate has ties to russian intelligence. we learned earlier this week that two witnesses claimed paul manafort and his associate repeatedly contacted them through encrypted messaging apps to try to influence their testimony. one witness says he felt president trump's campaign
12:18 pm
chairman was trying to get him to commit perjury. a spokesman for paul manafort says the team is reviewing the charges right now. manafort facing a laundry list of other charges. is he accused of funneling payment through foreign companies and bank accounts as part of political work for the former pro-russian president of ukraine. manafort has pleaded not guilty. let's turn to the former -- federal attorney emily compagno. good to see you. >> thanks for having me back on, shep. >> shepard: what do we know these new charges what do they amount to and what can they mean? >> they can mean a great deal. it's extremely serious that the charges themselves allegation of obstruction of justice and conspiracy of obstruction of justice because it means when the underlying case goes before the court, and the judge is hearing on the prosecution's side that these guys weren't playing ball. not only weren't they playing ball, they were also seeking to obstruct the investigation itself. note, too the time allegations of these
12:19 pm
obstructions attempts were after february. so it's after the superseding indictment came through. remember that mueller more than doubled the original amount of charges against manafort in february so here, again, these two charges, this is icing on the cake and it did not bode well for manafort here. >> shepard: are they trying to get him to turn state's evidence in this case? >> they might be. and i will note as well for viewers the fact that they have now identified person a so the business associate that you named just a moment ago, that's for the first time the revelation of who, in fact, person a was. so, by including him as well, that steps further they might be bringing that pressure on him. remember that the trial was delayed two weeks now to july 24th. this is an extreme pressure and heat that they are now bringing and prosecutors still argue by the way that manafort is being uncooperative with their not only investigation but with them in general. >> shepard: as they continue to put new charges against them you, and as they requested that he be locked up while he awaits two other
12:20 pm
trials. it appears that there is a lot of pressure from the mueller team. we can't say definitively that they are trying to get him to flip. but most legal analysts say that's the thing that makes the most sense. >> absolutely. and that would -- that is what the strategy would be for any high profile target that we are seeing the charges mounting against that potentially sitting on a gold mine. right? we have seen that as well with associates surrounding him. so it definitely, strategically, the prosecutors would be fools not to be attempting that. who knows what's going on behind the scenes in terms of what we have, at least, know now. he is absolutely unbending. but, certainly, that would be a high priority for prosecutors and investigators here. >> shepard: emily compagno, thank you, appreciate it? >> thank you. >> shepard: ahead, the goodbye letter from the columnist and fox news channel contributor charles krauthammer. his words after doctors told him he only has weeks to live. and, remembering anthony bourdain, the celebrity chef and tv star found dead today alone in a hotel.

12:25 pm
abdomen. that operation was thought to have been a success. but it caused a cascade of secondary complications, which i have been fighting in hospital ever since. it was a long and hard fight with many setbacks. but i would steadily if slowly overcoming each obstacle along the way and gradually making my way back to health. however, recent tests have revealed that the cancer has returned. there was no sign of it as recently as a month ago, which means it is aggressive and spreading rapidly. my doctors tell me their best estimate is that i have only a few weeks left to live. this is the final verdict. my fight is over. i wish to thank my doctors and caregivers whose efforts have been magnificent, my dear friends who have given me a lifetime of memories and whose support has sustained me through these difficult months. and all my partners at "the washington post," fox news, and crown publishing. lastly, i thank my

12:27 pm
krauthammer. >> i never in all the years i knew charles ever heard him express any sense of pity, why me. he lived a full life. he had a car outfitted so he could drive the streets of washington. he loved his washington nationals. he led a life of passion and of great consequence. >> it has been a joy over the years seeing charles at washington nationals baseball game. he isn't just a fan. it's like an addiction for him and he admits it charles had a fun moment when politics and baseball collided at the congressional baseball game. >> let me just say i had been watching the game and there is a hell of a lot of stealing going on down there. i don't want to cast aspersions but i would keep my eye on them. >> who is stealing the democrats or republicans? >> equal opportunity stealing and we got catchers who are somewhat super

[laughter] >> doing very well. i haven't had a relapse in 25 years. >> fox news chairman rupert murdoch saluted him saying charles has been a profound source of personal and intellectual inspiration for all of us at fox news. also principled stand issues on our time has been guiding star in often turbulent world a world that has too many superficial thinkers vulnerable to the ebb and flow of fashion. and a world that unfortunately only has one charles krauthammer. his words, ideas, dignity and integrity will resonate in our society and within me for many many years to come. much love to charles and his family. shep? >> shepard: from all of us. mike, thank you. the celebrity chef and world traveler anthony bourdain has died.

advocates have fought for decades to get this clarified with some kind of federal shield law. journalists do not have some kind of protective privilege. and they, like any other citizen, can be subject to these kind of searches of their personal communications in an investigation. there are some rules the justice department is supposed to follow in terms of negotiating with the journalist before they seize their communications, negotiating and perhaps about the scope. this wasn't the case in this situation. long-time reporter, correspondent at fox news james roseann rosen was named aa possible co-conspirator by the obama administration when eric holder signed off -- citing that as a reason for a search warrant. so, while journalists like to believe that it is their first amendment right to protect their sources and their information gathered in their reporting, they are not protected any more than any other citizen. and that's what happened in
