good idea. >> it is not a good idea because our exercises keep us at a high state of readiness. we need to be at the high steak, to defend south korea. all this will he wrote very quickly. these negotiations on denuclearization take years, then we could have a hollow force tempting north korea to invade. heather: just a pause, delaying them, suspending them and there has already been one this year. >>at these two, we have two sets of exercises. the important one, meant to coincide with north korea's training cycle and a high state of readiness we are at high state of readiness, these exercises take place in march,
march is critical, that is what north korea would attack, the ground would be frozen, great for tanks and the south koreans haven't flooded their fields yet so this is a good time for north korea to attack the problem is i don't think donald trump got a commitment to end their winter training cycle. >> that would be the key to find out, if they are going to stop their training cycle. listen to what tom cotton had to say. listen to him. >> we just had the biggest exercise each year in the spring, probably won't happen for anher 10 months until spring of 2019. we will have a pretty good read on whether kim jong un will keep his commitment. secretary maupon, regular every
training exercises. >> during the year you do have a level of training, and exercises that coincide with when the north koreans do. even if north korea didn't have nukes they still have chemical and biological agents, still have an estimated 14,300 artillery tubes north of the demilitarized zone which separates the two correias and that doesn't change, north korea's forces, 70% are deployed on the dmz below the line. that has got to change if we suspend our exercises, north korea has to make a corresponding commitment to pull back. >> we have continuing meetings going on next week. what happens next in terms of steps for diplomacy? >> donald trump is doing the right thing. we have secretary of state
pompeo to explain what occurred, we need to coordinate with our allies. donald trump did not wasim and that is the right way to proceed and pompeo and national security adviser john bolton talking with north korean officials as early as next week so donald trump is right, this is got to occur quickly. heather: terms of everything laid out before key priorities, the initial joint document, not enough details at this point. we are looking at a preliminary document and people criticize it and defend it. we won't know if these proceed and figure out where they are. we know the north koreans are declaring this to be a victory for themselves, propaganda is very corrosive and undercuts our message they want to give up the
nukes because they are not talking about that but they are talking about the end of the exercises and all the concessions donald trump made a that is a list solidifying kim's regime. in retn.okay if we get something heather: it was so amazing, really excites. appreciate it. 20 minutes after the top of the hour, blue state backfire, the move to create a liberal utopia in californimay pay off for the gop. kid rock back in politics. the critical senate race. ♪

point in the program but it is long overdue and one of those where i believe we can get immigration done on the floor of the house and senate but there are too many people on the left and the right who want to use it as a political issue to raise countless millions dollars, campaign funds to win elections. i'm get it is getting to the floor and i hope it sparks a bigger debate so we can get immigration done and everybody agrees. heather: something a lot of folks did agree on was the new discharge procedure position. it was going to force a vote on something that was a more popular version by some republicans, all democrats. what do you think of that failing and moving forward with these two possibilities next week instead? >> absolutely. with that position moving
forward and the comments that were made this is long overdue but where we have to be cautious is to use the lives of millions of individuals as a political pawn before the midterms has to be a red flag for indi t or the left side othaisle. what we are looking at is the question becomes will this even go to the senate floor and will senate take this up? more importantly will this be something the president if it gets to his desk will sign? it seems this is rushed, a political move because the dterms areoming up and people want to gets but not sure this will have long-standing effects for those people. heather: i am glad she mentioned this was left and right, both using this as a political pawn approaching the midterms. neither side wants to actually
vote on the floor because they want to use it. if it gets to donald trump's desk he will sign it? >> you have to force the issue. people on both sides of the aisle, the senate is the real problem and they keep telling us this person won't sign it and can't get through the senate so the president will veto it, force the issue, that is what they were sent to washington to do debate, amend, compromise and get the people's business done and that is the message all voters should send their members of congrs. we are not going to settle anymore. don't tell us thishard and is is just the way it is or a vote to have a vote. force the voted of the pres. is going to veto it let's veto it and amend it and send it back and have the debate in front of the american people. heather: wouldu like to put off your responsibilities at work until the next year and the next year? thank you for joining us,

newly released emails from anti-trump fbi agent peter stzrok throwing a wrench in the official timeline for the hillary clinton probe, loretta lynch's tarmac meeting with bill clinton and recusal, stzk notes this has been under discussion since april suggesting the fbi discussed the conclusion of its hillary probe months before interviewing her. those emails obtained by judicial watch's president, thank you for joining us and all the hard work you guys have been doing to get this out in the public because we wouldn't know about it if it wasn't for you. tell us out the latest emails yodiscovered. >> we began asking for materials as soon as the tarmac meeting happened and it took a lawsuit to get this. the fbi said there are no records but they did have records and here is another batch of records. this email from peter stzrok,
they didn't want to turn over any records and as the email show the fbi, peter stzrok was upset about the idea of the tarmac meeting influencing the fbi doj investigation of hillary clinton because already made the decision at least in april. that hillary clinton would not be prosecuted. this was before hillary clinton was interviewed by the fbi. bill: heard excuses, this was just a bullet point version, two versions, triela at would happen so we did this in preparation. cly this is evidence that was not the case. >> that is true and if the fbi was making prosecutorial decisions in april it had nothing to do with the tarmac meeting as james comey suggested. he decided long ahead of time he
was going to let hillary off. heather: talking golf and grandkids anyway. >> into the next topic the justice department is withholding the talking point miss lynch was using to defend her tarmac meeting so this justice department is defending corruption of the justice department. heather: this deadline passing for the doj to hand over documents to devon nunez on the alleged russia probe so they were supposed to do that and what happens now? >> the justice department has contempt for congress in matters like spygate and russiagate, this is confirmed by fox news that rod rosenstein threatened the intelligence committee with subpoenas. i am not a that it was happening before.
i can't imagine a scenario in these circumstances it would have been appropriate. jeff sessions needs to apologize, donald trump has interviewed once to get the records at issue today to congress. justice department summed its nose at him. he needs to intervene again, order the records to be released. the justice department can't be left to their own devices. heather: jeff sessions needs to do something. he has been absent. thanks for joining us. ig report allegedly tomorrow. thank you. we will be right back, stay with us.
