hello and welcome to "fox news @ night." i am shannon bream in washingto washington. president trump telling sean hannity has a rhetoric paved the way for the singapore summit. di light on the joint military exercises with south korea and how they factor in. let's take it to ed henry live in singapore. good eveningr good morning. >> that's right. good morning. despite theaysayers, the president came, saw, got a deal despite critics trying to talk down the possibility of american success before, during, and after the talks. the president tonight's going on offense, talking t sean hannity, trying to sell the deal, telling sean kim jong un is going to start denuclearization virtually immediately with the document they signed together hours ago. the president says this could save millions of lives. >> we had a very good feel from
8:02 pm
the beginning and we were able to get something very important done and actually some things ppened after where we are getting rid of certain missile research areas, missile testing sites. getting rid of a lock. >> comes a week after north korea threatened yet again nuclear conflict during one of their walks. kim was overheard telling the president the pictures were so surreal, many will think of this as a fantasy almost from a science-fiction movie. democrats like chuck schumer warning this may turn out to be a fantasy. the president promised specifically to and joint military exercises between the u.s. and south korea, that kim did not have to directly promised we get into specifics beyond the broad promise of how he's going to denuclearize.
8:03 pm
republicans on the hill w admitting tonight they have questions but saying on balance this is a good deal. meanwhile chris matthews of msnbc tonight basically admitting there's a lot of people rooting for this to fail. >> we've got a long way to go. what struck me the most is how much the president appreciated how devastating a war would be but it would be even more devastating to walk away from this nuclear threat. he's going to end it on his watch is what he told me. >> i can understand north korea because you butter up somebody to get them to the negotiating table and if he succeeds, god bless him. if they succeed reducing the nuclear threat. you have to. you have to hope your president succeeds. >> this is not just launch. it's not going to work. >> you know senator kennedy has a way with words. tonight he is saying that
8:04 pm
dealing with kim jong un is a little bit like trying to hand feed a shark. you can do it, shannon, but you have to do it very, very carefully. >> shannon: good point. safe travels back home. thank u. senator marco rubio calling out media coverage of the singapore summit. rubio said the meeting "exposing credible hypocrisy of those in media." obama was described as enlighted. when trump does it come he's reckless and foolish. howie kurtz take a look at whether there is a double standard. >> president trump got tt pageantry and photo op for what he described as a get to know you session with kim jong un but the historic summit also drew sharp criticism from liberal journalists and commentators. nick kristof said it looks like trump was hoodwinked. some pundits couldn't hide their distaste for the president. >> these are awful people and he
8:05 pm
wants to become best friends. >> i found it rambling and incoherent. i found it giving way more than having got. >> a summit is not an accomplishment for this american president. the spectacle of seeing the american flags with the dprk flag. somewhat disgusting. >> the liberal salon calle apore the nothing summit. some conservatives offered kinder words. >> i have to admit when i see these people shaking hands, i feel a sense of relief. >> there is room for legitimate criticism. the statement was vague. the north koreans have a long history of breaking agreements. there is the nature of cam's regime. >> the man kim jong un has killed famy membe, starved his own people, is responsible for the death of otto warmbier. why are you so comfortable calling him vy talented?
8:06 pm
>> welcome he is very talented. >> liberals largely backed barack obama when he met castro and negotiated a deal with iran's leaders. even the president sounded a note of caution. >> you trust him. >> i do trust him. will i come to you in the year and you will interview me. >> no way to know whether the president can get agreent with simon journalists food announced trump when he was exchanging nuclear threats with kim now seem unwilling to give them a chance. >> shannon: thank you very much. one of the president's first calls after the summit was to our next guest in some of his colleagues on capitol hill. republican senator john barrasso from wyoming sits on the senate foreign relations committee and you chatted with the president how did he sound? >> optimistic. congratulations to the president. this was a historic and
8:07 pm
important first step in these ongoing discussions to eliminate nuclear weapons from north korea. the president felt he had made progress and he is still very clear eyed about this. were going to have to see what happens. mike pompeo as well as john bolton will be meeting with the north koreans next week to take the next step. we need to make sure we have something verifiable and enforceable and accomplishes what we need for america's cund safetat home ich is north korno nuear weapons. >> shannon: you know that it's what critics have said. that there isn't that framework. all the things critical to this. one of your democratic colleagues chuck schumer had this to say. >> the bottom line is this: what the united states has gained is vague and unviable -- unverifiable. we hope this doesn't continue. >> shannon: work for secretary pompeo and other staffers to do
8:08 pm
in getting something done. how did they go about it in a way that will satisfy the president's critics, or can the they? >> some credits you will never satisfy. when the president set up the summit, they criticized him and when he canceled the summit they criticized him. when he went ahead with the summit, they criticized him still. we talked about what the president was when he came into office, barack obama said we were on the verge of war with north korea. at that time, we were. we saw in north korea's sophistication. it increased dramatically. now look at where we are today. as a result of the summit, the world is more safe, more secure, more stable than it was beforehand. we have a lot of work to do and i want something that actually can be a treaty with the arad agreement fell apart, terrible agreement but it was never brought to the elected members of the united states senate representing the people of the
8:09 pm
country. instead, they took it to the united nations. i want something with north korea we can take to the u.s. senate and get confirmed as a treaty. that's how you lasting relationships. >> shannon: the president tonight saying that's absolutely what he wants to do and that's his goal that you can vote on that will be binding that hopefully has bipartisan backing. we talked, howie did and we reference senator rubio. he said "i too have concerns about how this will turn out but i don't recall the experts criticizing obama when he met with the brutal dictator in cuba who oversaw a police state and killed in jail his opponents. #doublestandard. >> hs thoughtful on these issues, spent significant amount of time on it but i think the president gave up nothing. he could have pushed the pause
8:10 pm
button on some of these military exercises but we only do two a year. we did one in the spring. this one, for months to come. it would be easy to put that on. i think the president is giving up nothing. we've shown is that maximum pressure works. tough talk by the president works. we are in much better shape today than we were a big day president trump took office with regard to international security and focus specifically. we know nuclear weapons in the hands of north korea makes the world ss safe d less stable and less secure. >> shannon: just about everyone agrees this is a first step and there's more to come. we watch and wait for that. senator, thank you. you've heard senator lindsey graham on this program press rod rosenstein on whethere should recuse himself from special counselor robert mueller's investigation.
8:11 pm
the number two at the doj is playing hardball. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge has the exclusive report. >> the emails reviewed by fox news were sento the house office of general counsel to document the january closed-door meeting that included deputy attorney general rod rosenstein, fbi director christopher wray,oa republican house intelligence committee chairman devin nunes and his senior staff. the account claimed rosenstein threaten to turn the tables on the committee regarding the russia probe. "the deputy attorney general rosenstein criticized the committee for sending a request in writing and was further critical of the committee's request to have doj and fbi do the same when responding." investigator wrote going so far as to say that if the committee likes being litigators then we too are litigators and we will subpoena your records and email emails. the emails reviewed by fox indicate a second committee str at the meeting fact of the account, writing "let me add
8:12 pm
that watching the deputy attorney general launch assisting personal attack against a congressional staffer in retaliation for vigorous oversight was astonishing and disheartening." having the nation's number one for these matters law-enforcement officers threatened to subpoena your calls and emails was downright chilling. the fbi and justice department disputed the characterization. justice department officials as rosenstein never threatened a criminal investigation writing "the deputy attorney general's making the point after being threatened with contempt that as an american citizen charged with the offense of contempt of congress, he would have the right to defend himself including requesting production of relevant emails and text messages and calling them as witnesses to demonstrate that their allegations are false." the official went further, saying deputy attorney general will request that the house general counsel conduct an internal investigation of these congressional staffers conduc adding chairmaes did n complain after the meeting at a dinner with rosenstein and a mutual friend. in a statement, chairman nunes said they take staff concerns seriously and they referred the matter to the speaker's office.
8:13 pm
source close to the speakers that they have encouraged the committee to work through the justice department's inspector general. justice department said no formal complaints have been filed this time. >> shannon: thank you very much. new tonight, in addition to this, former fbi deputy director anew mccabe's lawyer is suing the justice department and the fbi claiming they will not give up files and information related to mccabe's firing, alleging that the doj has denied access because they are concerned that eocents can later be used against them. mccabe was fired in march, just shy of his retirement after a report foundleaked to the press. let's talk about it with tom dupree. great to have you with us. so many stories to talk about. let's start with the mccabe story. his attorney says this. by failing to proactively and publicly disclose documents at issue, and by failing to
8:14 pm
otherwise fulfill their statutory obligations. he is saying i can't defend my client unless you turn over these documents and you have a duty to do it. >> seems like a bit of a stretch. we'll see with the legal arguments are but my senses if there comes a point in time where mr. mccabe needs these documents to defend himself, i am confident that the situation with the judge might tell the department of justice you have to give this man the documents he needs to defend himself. at this point, i'm not clear why he thinks he has the legal entitlement to it. just because he's interested or his lawyers are interested doesn't give him a legal right to get them. >> shannon: another fight between the doj, the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein, and members of the house g.o.p., the intelligence commi staffers. we've had access to emails where they said they felt threatened.
8:15 pm
here is a little bit of what we hear from congressman gates. s from refusing to produce documents to improperly redacting documents for threatening our staff commits clear rod rosenstein will use every tool at his disposal to frustre congressional oversight. as catherine noted, doj official has said the deputy attorney general never threatened anyone in the room with a criminal investigation. let's talk about the distinction of what may be happen. we don't know. >> we don't know for sure. i will say i think we've crossed a line from unusual to extraordinary with these revelations. the point about the criminal investign is this, sounds like what doj is saying is that the deputy attorney general was making this point about a subpoena power, not an offense of sense like i'm going to come at you guys with a criminal investigation but more in the defense of sense saying if you are going to come after me if contempt or impeachment or something like that, i'm going to defend myself by going aftero
8:16 pm
exonerate what i've done. it's a fine line but i think that's what doj's defense is shaping up to be. >> shannon: sounds like both sides, they characterize it as they felt threatened. both sides through their weight around. i will subpoena you. no, i will subpoena you. there's been a huge breakdown. these are coequal branches o government. >> that's exactly right. there's always going to be tension between congress and the justice department but rarely if ever does it deteriorate to this level. what strikes me as analogous to is when you are litigating against an opposing party a you're both making subpoena threats. you're both demanding all communications be done in writing. why do you do that? it's because you don't trust the other side, that's what all of this tells me. there's not a lot of trust between these two camps. >> shannon: i think that's a perfect way to put it. a federal judge told robert mueller steam they have to turn over by far the names of people outlined allegations against paul manafort, his lobbying
8:17 pm
alleged for ukraine. what does that say to you? >> small but significant victory for the manafort defense team. the judges that you have to identify these anonymous people in the indictment to this be manafort defense counsel. my guess is that manafort and his lawyers already knew who these people were but at the same time, does box the special counseling. they have to put their cards on the table and disclosed to the defense how who these people w. >> shannon: we understand it could be key european officials and other folks. the judge will know by friday. we'll see how long it takes. tom, thank you. great to have you with us. president trump calling one candidate "nothing but trouble." hours before the polls close. president jumps into these primary fights between republicans, chris stirewalt breaks it down. it's another blow for an obama

8:23 pm
stephen chris stirewalt. more results in key races. welcome. mark sanford has never lost an election before. >> shannon has been a winner through all kinds of tumultuous things. >> he was a winner after a period after he went dark, stepped back from public life after he resigned the governorship. blow up south carolina politics. this was a guy on track to run for president. he would've been a great pick if you were looking at the field for 2012. he would've been a great pick until he exploded his career. then he came back with a lot of humility, a lot of deference and sincere apology. voters gave him another chance. what he found out was he had a short leash. that meant any criticism of the president, any bucking the party line, this is a guy who's very conservative. mega conservative.
8:24 pm
the guys on the freedom caucus like him. the libertarian leaders like him. the verdict here was because of his baggage, and she went right after his baggage and her ads, made a lot of his affair and scandal. she went after that in addition to the points he's disagreed with president trump. >> shannon: president trump figured into a race in virginia were corey stewart, it looks like, going to be the g.o.p. nominee against tim kaine in the fall. e ap described corey stewart "he campaigned last year on preserving virginia's confederate monuments and is an immigrant hard-liner. "there are a lot of folks who love him. that's why they voter him. this lines up with where the president's. he's been supportive of the president. he got in trouble when he was cochairing the state campaign. he decided to have the
8:25 pm
demonstration in front of the rnc office. folks saying they wonder how it's gonna play broadly. and down to get in virginia. >> republican turnout in virginia was substantially below where it was last year the primary. corey stewart was trying to take on ed gillespie. corey stewart isn't going to be a big partf helpi turn virginia blue. if you look at where his support came from, how few people turned out to vote, and if you look at his message and you look at his performance in these northern counties in virginia, he is out of step. what democrats are going to try to do. they are going to try to make corey stewart the face of the republican party. that will put the national icans. there will be a split. they don't want to say they disavow corey stewart but at the
8:26 pm
same time -- >> shannon: the president showing up to campaign with him. do you think that will happen? >> i have no idea what's going to happen. i wouldn't have told you he was going to have a bilateral summit in singapore with kim jong un either. anything is possible. >> shannon: we are going to check in on nevada. we love having you on primary night. >> my pleasure. >> shannon: polls closing in a sharply contested nevada primary. voters making their choices heading into the midterms. jonathan hunt is live in las vegas. >> difficult staying away from an open bar but as you know, we are at the headquarters right now of a campaign watch party. one of two democrats locked in a close battle for the parties nomination to be governor of
8:27 pm
nevada. the crowd is crawling around the bar. there is some guarded optimism. sisolak is holding something like a 15-point lead with about half of precinct recording. sisolak is chair of the powerful clark county commission. he touts himself as having the experience to get things done and like every candidate across america, he's asked how the trump presidency is going to play into n elect like every candidate here in nevada at least, he says this is an election that will be about nevadans, not aut president trump. listen. >> we disagree on issues but i am stating my case. i'm not arguing against someone else or my opponent. i want people to understand what i stand for. >> sisolak's opponent is a

8:36 pm
just-finish summit. it says they are "encouraged and that they stand ready to provide support for potentially historic progress while citing a broad popular mandate for this diplomatic approach. the letter signed by the two cochairs of the house progressive caucus. it stands in stark contrast to the skepticism expressed by the democratic party's leadership. >> president trump seems to have given away to reveal the major things kim jong un wanted. the meeting, the flags next which other, now no delay of exercises with south korea. without getting anything in return. >> former vice president joe biden added "talking to dictators is one thing. embracing them as aer so far, thissot a deal that advantages the united states or makes it safer." the respect trump showed to kim jong un is rattling many in the president's own party. senator marco rubio tweeting

8:38 pm
for certain immigrants. kristin sher joins us live with more details. there is more to the story. >> there always is. what the attorney general has done is essentially narrow down who quali for asylum in the untates. if you are a victim of domestic or gang violence, that's no longer enough. it has to be state-sponsored government persecution. it's a controversial decision to say the least, one that could affect tens of thousands of central american immigrants fleeing violence in their home countries. tonigh t attorney general explained why he is standing by it. >> you do not get to come to america if you have a private threat or someone personally attacks you. you do not get to have asylum for that. based on your race, religion, nationality, that you are part of some special identifiable group being persecuted in your home country. that's what it takes to have an asylum, and we need to get this

8:40 pm
0,000 immigration cases. reuters estimates at least 200,000 of cases involve asylum petitions. to discourage people from illegally entering the u.s., the trump administration adopted the zero-tolerance policy at the border which in some cases include separating parents and their children. it's led to widespread outrage on the left and even among some republicans. it's also shining a new light on some obama era policies. sunday democratic senator dianne feinstein was asked about why there wasn't more activism during the obama years around how undocumented immigrants were treated. here is what she said. >> i don't believe that it was nearly to the extent it is today. candidly, i didn't really know enough about it at that time to focus on it. i do know enough about it now. >> back to the ag's decision. those cases can ultimately be appealed. many immigration attorneys say they will appeal but no doubt

the soul of the democratic party is not in l.a. on hollywood. i laughed at the portion of the story when a midwestern senator going to actors for advice about how to talkns voters. why don't you spend some more time in the midwest and talk to real people about how they feel about gun control and other issues rather than spending all this time with hollywood elites. this idea they are going to find their answers on the west coast, as we like to say, this hollywood bubble where they think everybody agrees with them, that the president has nothing to offer, regular everyday people who voted for him, democrats who voted for them, it shows they haven't learned much and it's a gift of the republicans in 2018 and 2020. >> shannon: rush limbaugh ed about this. i want to play what he had to say. >> doesn't hollywood do this every year.
8:47 pm
