and on beautiful days here in new york city there is no better sunrise than here. have you got to take it in. pete: what about the beach like on the beach some of those sunrises? no better. abby: look at that over the skyscrapers. griff: over the beach. happy international surfing day. surfers watching the sunrise. pete: real thing or did you make that up? griff: today. abby: and you are here on the couch. griff: rather be here than surfing. pete: summer is a wonderful thing. pete: not only raise my arms but can i carry 568 pages of the inspector general's report. pete: i read our summary. abby: griff gets to read our cliff notes version. you are digesting the whole thing. steel reeling on what happened. big nuggets come out of this report that many people cannot wrap their head around. unbelievable some of the things that have come out of
this. griff: inspector general michael horowitz and fbi director chris wray is going to testify on monday and tuesday before the senate judiciary committee and house committee. we know that comey was found to be insubordinate. we know five agents have been referred for administrative action. we know that peter strzok said we are going to stop them in reference to trump's campaign. what we don't know and hear more about is a missing month. there is a part of this report where an agent in new york working on anthony weiner's sex case finds classified documents on weiner's laptop and he notifies washington headquarters, specifically peter strzok, setting up the clinton email thing and says i have got something here. and this is discovered on september 29th. i want to put that date up there now, it isn't until october 28th, this is in 2016 that james comey notifies congress of the discovery of these emails and the question is what was going on for a month that a
new york agent was sounding the alarm, in his words, to investigators. he heard, quote: crickets for a month and no action was taken. abby: time something interesting because it is back no 2016. it was the tail end of the election, right? vow to wonder what is going on behind the scenes at the fbi. why did they wait this long in the only reason we know about it by the way is the agent was looking on anthony weiner's laptop for other reasons. investigating him for his own nefarious issues. and that's how we know about this unfortunately. but what was going on? why did this go missing? why did this sit there for a whole entire month? pete: we don't know. we actually don't know. so have you peter strzok who is in charge of not just the hillary clinton investigation. he is in charge of the so-called russia investigation as well. so the same guy in charge of both was he sitting on the information for a month because hillary clinton was he so distracted by the, you know case they were building against trump that he was
unable to get to it for a month? i mean, what i'm struck by this horowitz investigation is a lot of good, interesting nuggets in there that expose bias. but it felt to me just like the comey press conference. here's all the bad stuff that they did. here's all the bias. here's all the ways hillary clinton didn't follow the law. but you know what? we are going to let her off the hook. same thing with horowitz. here's all the bias. here's all the texts. we are going to stop him. you know what? i don't really see the evidence of systematic bias. i don't buy it anyone with common sense doesn't buy it horowitz's report has great information but comes to the wrong conclusion. of course these fbi agents used their personal bias. abby: this isn't over yet. there is another report coming out the ig 2 boy 0 but also he will be on the hill. michael horowitz will be on the hill monday and tuesday. i imagine a lot of those questions will hit on what you are talking about, pete. and should there be consequences? should action be taken not just against peter strzok
and lisa page the other agents you talked about and had pretty table to say about the president's supporters all throughout this period. griff: we heard the president saying he wants the investigators investigate you had. give you sense for where members of congress and chairman on these committees is on this are they drawing this bias maybe it's time to end the mueller investigation because of this irrefutability bias that horowitz laid out is tainting the current mueller investigation. the possible prioritization of russia. here is what ron desantis says about the infection of this bias. >> vindicated trump and really prongs of the mueller investigation. the idea that you are going to have an obstruction of justice investigation because trump fired the fbi director hot ig acknowledges had no business being fbi director is a farce. the other thing i think it undercuts is the whole genesis of this so-called collusion narrative. they did not give that text
message to the congress when we asked where strzok says we will stop trump from becoming president. this whole thing is infected with bias and it needs to stop. pete: it's infected and how do you treat the russia investigation seriously when you know it was launched by people by people who wanted to let hillary clinton off easy and find a reason to get at trump. it's the reason why a lookout of people are saying the mueller probe is compromised. abby: this whole thing is tainted thought that's why we had rudy giuliani on this show yesterday. this is the reason we don't want to cooperate moving forward. we are not going to sit down and have this conversation. how can we take this seriously when you look at the early days of the investigation and peter strzok under a the things he said about the president. how can you take that seriously. pete: another media item. we know about the concentration camps that were run in world war ii. griff: horrific. pete: treatment of jews.
according to media figures, america is running concentration camps here. listen. >> used to be america's greatest democracy. we can't find a solution to this problem without harming children. without putting them into concentration camps. >> i call this a concentration camp for kids because that's exactly what it's turning out. to say when you give kids 22 hours of lockup time and two hours of air time. what else can it be? and if this is where this country is going, the american people need to wake up and pay attention because your kids could be next. griff: let me put it into a little bit of context of the words of a former rnc chairman michael steele. the policy on the border is the policy that began under barack obama which is separating children from their families and now. pete: temporarily. griff: this administration is applying it zero
tolerance policy in 2014 i was down on the border in laredo, texas, where we had a flow of unaccompanied children coming across. they were allowing nonprofits and whatnot and contacting people in the community to sort of facilitate the separation of children. now, we have a policy for which we are doing it with zero tolerance and finding these facilities for children and their families to be temporarily separate you had until they get to a court date. abby: i wonder why the president was attacked yesterday on the north lawn when he came out impromptu and did that almost an hour of a presser with steve doocy and the press. they are saying you are a liar about that. it wasn't a democratic policy. what is the truth there? there is a bit of confusion does it go back to the earlier days of the obama administration or even before that? are they just implementing those policies or what is going on now completely different? pete: let's have that conversation about policy, right? how do we best
disincentivize people from bringing children across the border illegally. you can't have that conversation when you are accusing people of running concentration camps. how offensive to jews whose parents, grandparents were literally gassed to death, shot to death in shallow graves in the holocaust. this is one particular place where kids are being taken care of. they wake up at 6:30. breakfast at 7:00. school until 2:00. clinical work until 3:00. recreation events. movie events, soccer. pool tables. games. i also served at guantanamo bay, cuba, where we took care of terrorists and we bent over backwards to treat them, i know, i guarantee you on the border for these kids who are temporarily separated from their parents, we're doing everything we can to make sure they are comfortable, they feel loved. that they recognize this is temporary. they will be brought back together because their
parents broke the law. abby: i would say it's not sustainable. hundreds of kids at the border being separated. the president has talked with this. he doesn't want them to be separated. we will have a debate about this later on in the show. we will be talking about it throughout the morning it's an important topic and one that a lot of people are passionate about. griff: talk about the policy and the rhetoric is overtop. we have ron vitiello the commissioner of the border patrol. is he going to come on this show and you will hear directly from him. he is on the front lines. that is going to be the interview of the morning to answer a lot of these questions. >> he will help us better understand what really is going on at the border vs. all the headlines you are reading u. abby: a fox news alert. a second sheriff's deputy dying overnight after being attacked by an inmate. theresa king and patrick roar shot and killed in kansas city, kansas. investigators believe the suspect grabbed one of their guns as at the escorted him into court. >> we heard a shot.
we heard boom. >> i seen an officer shot in his head and then i seen another officer losing his life on the floor. abby: king was a 13-year veteran of the force. roar sirved seven years. the suspect antwon fielder was shot. he had a long criminal history including murder charges. also this former trump campaign manager paul manafort waking up behind bars this morning. a judge revoking 10-million-dollar bail sending him to jail after he was charged with witness tampering. manafort awaiting trial for mostly financial charges as a result of the special counsel russia investigation. he has pleaded not guilty and heads to court in mid september. also, a tough day at the u.s. open as several big names mills the cut. tiger woods, mcilroy, join. pete: it's mcilroy and. abby: mcilroy and spies. one doctor under par. number one ranked dustin
johnson. pete: that is clutch. abby: can you catch the action today of course on fox and fs 1. i should have had pete read that one instead of myself. pete: we correct on occasion. do you a nice job. griff: president trump calling out the findings of the inspector general's report. >> i would like to talk. but it seems to be very biased. i did nothing wrong there was no collusion. there was no obstruction. >> mr. president -- >> our next guest served 24 years as fbi agent. he says bias against the trump team was obvious. pete: steve doocy did a nice job yesterday. tom brady taking on the kneeling protest during the national anthem. he doesn't talk much. see what he says coming up. ♪ ♪
steve: rudy says you should not talk to mueller. >> a lot of people say that. i would like to talk but it seems to be very biased. i did nothing wrong there was no collusion. there was no obstruction. pete: that was president trump on "fox & friends" yesterday. responding to calls for an end to the mueller investigation as the bombshell ig report revealed significant bias inside the fbi. griff: chris swecker who served 24 years as a special fbi agent is here to react. chris, thank you for joining us this morning. >> good morning. griff: what do you make of this? >> well, this report is a bit of a bombshell. but it doesn't have a lot of surprises in there for me,
except there are very interesting details that were flushed out during the 500 plus page report. clearly there was bias from the t of the house through the investigating team. and that bias, the inspector general did outlin some actions that were taken. that's why it's surprising. like you say that's why it's like the infamous comey press conference where he exsore united stated hillary clinton and then exonerated here. that's what the ig did in this case. they had bias. they did this, and this, and this. they delayed the investigation when the weiner laptop investigation was developed. they sat on that. they leaked information. they changed language in director comey's statement to take out incriminating language. that's action. and then at the top of that pyramid was someone running the investigation was someone who took over $500,000 from the dnc. pete: chris, explain this to me as someone who has been
on the inside and a part of these investigations. how can you draw the conclusion that we see all of these text messages and here is one that's infamous at this point but we will put it up again. lisa page saying trump is not ever going to become president, right? and peter strzok, who is leading the investigation into the hillary clinton email server and eventually the russia investigation, no, no, he won't. we will stop it. how does an inspector general, who seems to be -- you know, diving into the details, willing to say no, we don't see any bias here there were some tough decisions made. but, ultimately, this was largely above board. how do you make sense of that? >> yeah. he had to contort himself into a pretzel not to -- to come to a decision or conclusion that the bias was reflected in the investigation. i think he played it i have is a. i think he lost his nerve. i mean, clearly, action was taken. they changed language. they took gross negligence
out of the director's statement. the director was preparing the statement two months before the conclusion of the prches so he was clearly communicating to these investigators, hey, this is -- there is going to be no violation here. we are going to exonerate her before a lot of key interviews took place. before a lot of key things happened during the investigation. here's the guy at the top -- the house there saying, look, there is going to be no -- no harm, no foul. they are changing language. and then they sit on explosive information for a month. griff: chris, quickly, because we are almost out of time i wants to ask you horowitz and director wray, current fbi director will testify on monday and tuesday before senate house committees. what would be the question you would ask them? >> i would outline all those actions and say if this were not -- you know, if this were not the fbi. if this were just the average citizen out there. what conclusion would you have really okay to and how can you ignore all of these different actions and come to a different -- the conclusion that they did?
and i would also -- there are a lot of things that weren't covered. why wasn't jim comey's leaks covered during this ig report? they covered all the other leaks. there were at least 300 contacts with reporters. so clearly there was a culture of leaking under comey and comey's inner circle. why did they ignore that? >> interesting and we know comey had a g mail account. pete: chris swecker, 24 years of service in the fbi. thank you for your service. got to be frustrating to watch an agency like this be tainted by bias. chris, thank you for your time. thank you. immigration set to take centers stage next week with two republican bills up for a vote. but will it offer 578 amnesty aw will that sit with the president's base? david webb, i saw him in the green room, and he is on deck. griff: does tom brady side with the nfl anthem kneelers
griff: welcome back. quick headlines. china retaliating. so i beeps, hybrid and electric vehicles, pork. the taxes go in july 6th. that's the same da u.s. will hit china over what he calls unfair trade practices. and the united states could withdraw from the human rights council at any time. according to reuters, the trump administration is expected to quit the israel, the boycotted the council three years under president george w. bush. abby? abby: thank you, griff.
et rick surrounding the immigration debate now reaching fevered pitch levels. >> the democrat have decided to politicize the issue rather than get serious about addressing the president's. >> i don't know why there aren't uprisings all over the country. maybe they will be. >> we are scarring those children for life by taking them away and institutionalizing them. >> this sun american. that's what this. >> democrats, by the way, are very weak on immigration. >> this as two republican bills head to a vote next week. one from house speaker paul ryan that could give legal visas to 1.8 million people here illegally. the other from congressman bob goodlatte. mandates everify will and protects 700,000 illega illegal aliens. our democratic guest was not able to make it this morning. we will chat about this together. that's happening on the hill. you heard the back and forth we just played.
the country could not be more divided when it comes to immigration. that's why this is so tough to get something passed to get it right. what do you think is going to happen? can the president -- can he impact this at all? do you think he needs to get ahead of this? does he need to negotiate as he often talk witness 00 campaign trail that he can be the one to get things done on the hill? >> i think he really needs to get out ahead of this and focus on the message from the campaign. by the way, the country is not really very divided on the issue. they want a solution. it's the politicians like louis gutierrez who makes outrageous statements like jeff sessions wants in the back of the bus. the president needs to step out on the principles in comprehensive border barrier, visa reform, immigration reform. structure that actually works. you know, when you have differences in bills between things like everify, mandating that. you have everify so the employers are held accountable. you need that a border barrier system wall.
technology. interdiction, detection and interdiction. also immigration judges as well and better fast track system to return illegal aliens. this all has to be part of a package and it has to work together. the problem with the ryan bill essentially it's incremental failure. in washington you do a little piece, a little piece, you never put together a true comprehensive atroch to the solution. and you never effectively resolve it. abby: if you put that forward the goodlatte bill gets enough votes. >> a good bill dies in the senate. abby: you look at the bigger picture if you want to get something through the house and senate do you need to work in moderates. do you need to work in. >> you work in policies. i know the debate is over moderate vs. conservative or democrat or whatever the case may be. the fact is when you look at this from a law enforcement a structural process. it needs to include elements
that work together. that's why i brought up those points. the argument over moderate vs. conservative needs to go to what works and i would frankly, if i could say to the president, unless this bill has a process that works, you need to say no to the bill. republicans have got to stop snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. and the democrats are never going to agree with them because it's not about agreement. it's about the wedge issue. abby: thai that is why it's so complicated. paul ryan saying something different. democrats saying something completely different. the other party of this conversation, david, are these children. have you children over the past six weeks that have been separated from their children. they are not in cages they are not being gassed. you see these headlines. the president has said no one wants children to be separated from their parents u no one wants this to happen. can do you a daca bill that's separate from all of this? >> look, american citizens who commit crimes in certain
circumstances, their children are separated from them during incarceration. so let's not pretend that we're only separating children. we are separating children from criminals. there are also cases where we are not sure if they are their children. also, when the children are separated, they go to typically other blended or illegal alien families who then disappear. so the democrats have completely miscast this issue. abby: the policy is not sustainable. the way it is right now say okay, let's put them in places where they can stay for the time being. that can't last. we can't tell the country we are okay with that. >> it can't last. it's not practical. the other elements how do we deal with the illegal alien committed any crime in whatever manner. to solve the. lower numbers in there so you can have a manageable problem. when it comes to the children, reuniting them. while you are being deported you are reunited. we have got to stop with just the what's mine vs. yours. and look at what is possible.
what is practical and what is effective. ache be a and how can we do it together? a lot on the president's plate. see what happens on the hill next week. >> stay on top of it be fair and structural it will get done. abby: david, good to see you. recruiting from isis straight from her home in wisconsin. a mother of seven, you can see her right there, just busted. details ahead. fbi employee says president trump supporters are all poor, uni had indicated and lazy. dan bongino is here. is he fired up. he is next.

(oh!) going out for a bite. going anytime. rewarded! learn more at theexplorercard.com
>> mr. president, when did you first learn that hillary clinton used an email system outside the u.s. government for official business while she was secretary of state? >> the second time everybody else learned it through news reports: the policy of my administration was encourage transparency. that's why emails blackberry i carry around all those records are available and archived and i'm glad that hillary has instructed that those emails that had to do with official business need to be disclosed. pete: that was former president barack obama in march of 2015 being asked what he knew about partly hillay clinton's private server. let's bring in dan bongino, secret service agent, host
of the dan bongino show. dan, good morning, part of what we learned from michael horowitz' report of course president obama was emailing, one of the few people who had the private email address of hillary clinton. emailing back and forth off of the official server yet he claims he didn't know she had a private email. >> pete, that's nonsense. now you sense the frustration of large swaths of america who feel like two justice systems out there. one for the elites and the run for the rest of us who have to live under this. people are upset because obama is clearly not tell the truth here, pete. let me debunk this for you. barack obama's blackberry. his personal blackberry. the emails that came into it had to be vetted in advance. they had to be white listed. the opposite of being blacklisted, right? somebody in the white house staff had to give hillary clinton's private email to that white house communication agency that handles the security of that device.
they had to know. they was not telling the truth. it's unbelievable what this administration got away with. by the way, one more thing, that provides a perfect incentive for barack obama's department of justice to make the hillary clinton email investigation go away like an a an al al an al alka sr tablet in water. abby: lawyer in the fbi message in this report who calls them uneducated, lazy, poor, all poor to middle class. i will read this to you exact reading. trump supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated lazy. pete: pos. abby: take what you want from that. probably didn't watch the debates. aren't fully educated on his policies and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm. dan, they are speak talking directly there. >> jobs for doing nothing. that's interesting from, you know, a government employee.
believe me, i'm not impugning the men of the fbi or the women or the federal agents. i was one. i worked as a secret service agent. but that's a fascinating take from people who work for a government that really doesn't care about quality you know -- guys, you know, when i got in this morning, when the producer sent it over to me, the first thing that came to mind to me my mother-in-law is an immigrant to this country. she cleaned pains at laguardia airport and used to have to feed her kids the peanuts that were left over. she is a trump supporter. i dare you to look her in the face and tell her how uneducated what a pos she was. now she lives a relatively prosperous life in florida because for 30 years she busted her butt. her ankles don't work. she has arthritis in her wrist she is a mess for working her butt off her whole life while you goons
in washington, d.c. collected benefits and can never be fired from your job. most disgusting thing i have ever seen. i get it i know people have a theory on why trump was elected. i will tell you can attribute texts and thoughts like that for reason number one in that exhibit. pete: briefly, how does michael horowitz end up concluding that these decisions were not involved by bias? >> pete, interestingly enough, the executive summary he makes no direct connection, but if you actually read through on some of the stages in the report, he actually does make a connection between political bias. in the executive summary it's kind of loose. and i guess what he is saying is there is no paper trail of political bias. if you read the report, it's 500 pages of political bias. griff: dan, we did and we found a missing month that peter strzok did not act, perhaps, on an agent in new york the rank and file doing their job sounding the alarm
for a month about what he found on anthony weiner's laptop looking into a sex case that was pertinent to hillary's email server. dan, thank you very much. we will see what we find out on monday and tuesday when horowitz takes the stand. pete: appreciate it. abby: good to see you, dan. other headlines i want to bring you this morning. on a sad note. a mother of seven accused of trying to recruited -- this is a horrible story. trying to recruit for identifies will remain behind bars seen right there. she is denied bond in wisconsin. accused of hacking social media accounts to spread propaganda and share instruction us on how to build bombs. lawyers claim she was just lonely and didn't pose a threat. originally from israel faces up to 20 years in prison. and the neighbor who attacked senator rand paul leaving him with broken ribs will now spend a month in prison. renee boucher was convicted of assault after attacking neighbor last year over a fight lawn debris.
ordering boucher one year of supervised release, $10,000 fine and 100 hours of community service. paul says he should have gotten more jail time. also, remember this. this woman who spit on a pro-police demonstrator. [chanting] abby: that woman is now expected to turn herself in to a chicago police station later today after the man pressed charges. capturing that incident at a demonstration in chicago city hall. accusing him of being anti-law enforcement. tom brady throws his support behind nfl national anthem protesters. the new england eagles quarterback discusses the issues with open pranchts there were a lot of good healthy conversations coming out of it you respect what other people, i do. i respect why people are doing what they are doing. and they are doing it for different reasons. they can do things for their reason and have you respect
for that but i thought it was great. abby: brady never kneeled for the anthem. comments come ahead of new nfl rules requiring players on the field to stand. pete: the debate continues for sure. rick? tell us about the weather. abby: you are over there. pete: yell his name really loud. abby: rick, how beautiful was the sunrise this morning. did you see it? rick: come on. pete: you didn't see it. pete: no, i didn't see it. abby: am i the only one. rick: i like the sunrises but i don't like if i am up to see it. pete: you and the rest of america. rick: weather has been great. down across much of the eastern part of the country things not looking that bad. get ready across parts of the southern gulf states. we are going to see you heavy rain move in. more by tomorrow. big storms madison, wisconsin overnight. causing localized flooding. chicago area clearing ought
a little bit behind that down across parts ever the four corners. we have not seen much of rain arizona. tucson 106 days last night. got their first .01-inch of rain. take a look at that moisture coming. in that was what was hurricane bud in parts of the pacific. that moisture moving in across the four corners, good news, fires across much of colorado and that will help things. major heat across parts of the plains this weekend. feeling like about 105 across parts of minnesota. pete: minute society iminnesotaf the plains? rick: yes. pete: okay. i will give it to them. thanks, rick. i'm getting it slowly but surely. griff: coming up as europe and other major economies lose steam. leaving other economies in the dust. we are breaking it down. pete: some on the left and even the right teaming up to slam president trump's supporters as being cult
like. are theyin they only doing dang damage to themselves. tammy bruce up next. >> becoming consultish thing. >cultish thing.>> if it seems te president trump's formers are consulish like, you are not alone. for its light-duty truck the chevy silverado. oh, and since the chevy equinox and traverse also won chevy is the only brand to earn the j.d. power dependability award across cars, trucks and suvs-three years in a row. phew. third time's the charm... it wi called usaarst and the first thing they asked was 'are you ok?' they always thank you for your service, which is nice because as a spouse you serve too. we're the hayles and we're usaa members for life.
i was wondering if an electric toothbrush really cleans better than a manual. and my hygienist says it does but they're not all the same. who knew? i had no idea. so she said, look for one that's shaped like a dental tool with a round brush head. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head surrounds each tooth to gently remove more plaque,
griff: republican senator bob corker claiming fellow republicans are cultish when it comes to supporting president trump. >> we are in a strange place. i mean it's almost, you know, been -- becoming a cultish thing, isn't it? it's not a good place for any party to end up with a cult-like situation as it relates to a president that happens to be of -- purportedly of the same party. abby: a "the washington post" headline also doubling down on the cultish language reading quote republicans
embrace the cult of trump ignoring warning signs. pete: little bob corker. here to react is tammy bruce. >> good morning. pete: help us out a republican president achieving things most republicans would dream of having through deregulating, cutting taxes, cutting deals to make the better place why is that considered a cult with this president. >> interesting. those remarks with r. a reflection of his supporters not of the president. they still, and this is -- regardless of what party you are on obviously republican or democrat, it's the opposition, what they reveal with this comment is they don't understand how the person people are interested in the issues, interested in policy, recognizing that government has an impact on our lives. so, that our response, in fact, we are partisans. i support the president we are partisans for the united states and our families. we watch the future drain
out over the last 8 to 10 years. arguably 12 years and we were told that was the new normal. there was nothing else that could be done. that you were always going to work three part time jobs and have no money. the president made promises. we waited to see. he delivered and that deserves support. but what's interesting is whether you have someone like bob corker or the legacy media deciding to label the support for this put, based on his success as a cult, you are dismissing the issues. you are revealing that you don't understand yourself the valve the issues. and how the american people make decisions. donald trump, it's not about support for donald trump. he is the result of our wanting something better. he is the one who defined it and said i understand and then had a path to deliver. griff: why though, corker is from tennessee as i am. a lot of trump supporters there why would he offend them? why we say this? >> tennessee state al gore.
big affinity for tennessee. the reason is there is, i think, a commitment more to the establishment. more to what they believed was important. the accepts that the governmensense that thegovernmee for the country. they literally lost touch with the individual american and the nature of what makes this country great, which is not the government u it's the nature of the citizens. this was an existential shock. they believed that things were a certain way. they also believed that the government is necessary. because we have seen some of the comments as have you been reporting. even in the ig's report. the attitude about fbi agents. of general opposition of trump. talking about the average trump voter in such derogatory ways. there is the way that they view the averages american. those who are not living in malibu or manhattan. and it's shocking. we have to address it the fact is -- they are wrong
but this government has so lost touch with what their job is and what they are doing here and the fact that their job is policy. not to reign over the american people. it's a wake-up call, i think, across the board. and it tells us more about them. griff: tammy bruce, thank you. >> remember november. griff: headline says it all. economic growth in the u.s. leaves a world behind. we'll break down the latest booming economy news. i'm to your bumper, cause....

the fasters three years. g.d.p. is above 4%, pete. that's a steril stellar number. we are doing well. pete: obama folks would say you're welcome. that was to our credit. >> yeah. pete: did you point to the trump administration's policies on that? >> to be honest or fair and balanced, i think you can point to both. the fact is that growth is picking up even more under president trump if you look at unemployment it's down even more since president trump was elected a year and a half ago. unemployment claims fell to their near historic levels this past week. 1.7 million people are receiving benefits and although that sounds like a lot, it's actually the lowest levels since richard nixon in 1973. pete: "the washington examiner" had this headline fewer people on unemployment benefits in any time than 44
years. nothing but good news. >> you are right. that's what matters to every day americans. if you have a job. are you making money? can you pay your bills? this is a very robust labor market by any measure. unemployment rate down 3.8% is going to mean that wages are going to increase soon. and consumer spending is off the charts, pete. so good things across the board. pete: absolutely. heather short and sweet. thank you for your insight on these headlines. >> yes, sir. pete: straight ahead, alan dershowitz, herman cain and stuart varney all here live on this saturday edition of "fox & friends" coming up ♪ ♪

they play great stuff in the break and play stuff we don't know coming into the show. there he is. there is dave. pete: stop hiding, dave. when they went to new studio there are robot cameras everywhere. we used to have cameraman. dave the stage man who is not a robot. griff: dave's dancing is almost as exciting as the 568 pages of this report which you have now heard of that james comey influenced by bias. 567 pages of bias followed by one page that says there was no bias. is that right? griff read the whole report so you don't have. to say. abby: we call it the griff notes. he does all the reading. pete: tabs on it and everything. abby: important part that you brought up this morning that i don't think is
getting enough attention. people are not talking enough about it. a period of time. a month of time had members of the fbi agents warned the higher ups said there were emails found on anthony weiner, of all of people on his email from the hillary clinton server they let sit for a month. griff: talking about an agent noemails found on a lapton the weiner's possession pertinent inspects of the looking into weiner's sex scandal investigation. put this date up here again september 29th emails discovered on weiner's laptop. not until october 28th that james comey notifiethatdirectors comey. what went on in that month did political bias on the part of peter strzok who we now know says was going to
stop the president from becoming -- president trump from becoming president. what happened and did bias cause this delay? pete: peter strzok both in charge of the hillary clinton email investigation and the so-called trump-russia investigation, right? in charge of both. griff does his homework so on page 303 which you read all the way to. i got the executive summary down. he read the whole thing. he found. this listen to this. we talk about how rank and file fbi agents do their job and they don't want political bias. this portion of the report is a great example of the rank and file fbi agent saying i'm doing my job. what's happening at the top. this is from the ig report. listen to this quote. regular agent investigating anthony weiner on unrelated sex charges. he said the contradicts i was hearing was really making me uncomfortable because something was going to come crashing down. i'm telling you, that we have potentially 10 times the volume that director comey said we had on the record. i'm a little scared here. i don't care who wins this election.
but this is going to make us look really, really horrible. he goes on to say, you know, i felt i needed to let them know about this. this is an agent saying i found all these emails. i sent them off to headquarters. i'm getting contradicts. why am i not hearing anything? that's what you want from an fbi agent and he feels like for a month he was stonewalled, who knows why. now we are hearing that no bias bias report from michael horowitz who did a lot of great homework but appears came to conclusion no bias here. abby: why did they sit on it a month. this was in 2016 in october right before the election. walls this because they were so focused on what was going on with donald trump at the time and looking at the potential russian collusion? was it because they thought hillary clinton was going to win hands down the election. they will wanted it to just sit. we don't have the answers to these questions. something was going on it seems that they were told about this from the rank and file men and women at the
top and they did nothing. peter: hillary clinton was going to be the president of the united states they refer to her as the future president. we are going to stop donald trump. how that doesn't exude biases, i don't know what does. i'm sorry you can't investigate one fairly and the other one fairly when you want one to win and the other one not to win and you say so. griff: to your point, abby about the rank and file he. we spoke to chris swecker. here is what he said about this. >> action was taken. they changed language. they took gross negligence out of the director's statement. by the way the director was preparing the statement two months before the conclusion of the press conference so he was clearly communicating to these investigators hey, there is going to be no violation here. we are going to exonerate her before a lot of key interviews took place before a lot of key things happened during the investigation hire is the guy at the want
to house no harm no foul and changing language and then they sit on explosive information for a month. pete: chris has been with the fbi for 24 years. what ultimately said about horowitz is he thinks horowitz lost his nerve. a lot of good details and information in this inspector general report. to ultimately come to the conclusion like the comey press conference. she did all these terrible things with her email but she is innocent. look at all this bias, but they are not biased it takes courage in washington to speak truth which is a lot of reason why they hate trump he speaks truth. in this case, unfortunately, he fell short of the bar. abby: monday and tuesday very busy days on the hill. michael horowitz and christopher wray will be questioned by both ebbs microsoft house and the senate. i imagine they will be asking about consequences. should action be taken against a number of these fbi agents where there was very rah parent bias and text messages and exchanges that talked about their personal feelings about the president, the president's supporters. so that could be a very
interesting hearing to watch. griff: hopefully they will call this rank and file agent in new york. do you know what else can we expect. that is the media continue to knock president trump for lack of transparency despite what as a 52 minutes of taking questions that began when president trump surprised us and walked over to steve doocy. after the 32 minutes talking to doocy. he took every question from the press corps there. this is the media's knocking the president's transparency. >> we seat doors often closed on the press. >> more transparency. >> trump white house has been less transparent than its predecessor. >> are you thinking about -- mueller. >> you spoken so passionately about the circumstances that led to otto warmbier's death. >> yeah. >> in the same breath you are defending now kim jong un's human rights record. >> one at a time. >> comey's actions unfair to hillary? >> how can kim love his people if he is killing
them? >> ig report, you said twice now that it exonerated you and proved no collusion. >> if you read the ig report i'm totally exonerated. >> are you planning to meet with putin this summer. >> can we do one question at a time? abby: by the way, i think the president would do this every sings gel day if his advisors let him. their main job is to pull him back from going out and talking to the media. he enjoys that. he likes going back and forth with the press. you compare it to the campaign trail. do you remember there was like almost 300 days when hillary clinton didn't do a press conference and speak to the media. do you know how boring that would be if she were in the white house. what you can't say he isn't transparent and go out there and answer the questions. you may not like the answers he has. pete: 32 minutes griff you were on the couch. our own steve doocy had historic interview there for almost a half hour. then he answered a number of questions after that. anything they want. it's embarrassing. if you are a so-called member of the press screaming the way they do.

concentration camp and people should be more accurate when they describe what we are trying to accomplish there. griff: commissioner, i want to get tote policy ask one more question about the rhetoric. what is the impact this rhetoric has to your men and women on the border as they try to do their job securing the border. >> obviously it disappoints them. they know what we are trying to do for these families and children. no one does more for the border patrol to rescue people and protect them when they are on this journey. they are in our custody for a very short time. they are turned over to hhs in these shelters. our mental and women serving the country know better and they would like more accuracy in this discussion. griff: let's talk about accuracy on policy. lay out for us what the truth is. what is the policy now? is it different from before i will let you address that. >> important to recognize these laws have been on the book for quite some time.

humane treatment between a mother and her child. take a listen to this and get your response. >> one of the women that i interviewed today told me that she was breastfeeding her daughter when the government took her daughter from her. and when she resisted she said that was when they put handcuffs on her. griff: mr. commissioner, did that happen and what is your reaction? >> that did not happen. we're very disappointed by this inflammatory story and we have no record of that occurring in our custody. griff: ronald vitiello deputy commissioner of the customs border protection. thank you for your time. as you point out it is important to get some accuracy in this routeing because of the impact it has on your men and women. thank you very much for being here. >> agreed. thank you. griff: all right. transgender students dominate a girl's track and field competition. now parents are launching petitions for stricter guidelines in athletic

mother and attorney keisha u good to have you three with us. all parents and i'm sure all have an interesting take on this. keisha, you have a 15-year-old daughter. where do you stand? >> i don't think it's fair. i feel that we're born genetically, physically one gender. so all for transgendered individuals having rights and things like that. it's a mental choice, i feel. and it's not fair to have someone who is physically different competing in a sport with the opposite gender. it's not even playing field no way compete fairly with
males if they are born. >> you don't agree with that. >> accepting across the board that is not the case. this is not a choice. this is a biological thing that's happening and widely accepted. we can't go backwards. this is only going to happen. school districts, sports are accepting and addressing transgender students. my point the studies all find it's one half of 1% of the u.s. population identifies as trans. that is a handful of kids in every school. the chances of those kids being really great athletes and issue come up are very small. let's use this as a opportunity teach our kids grace instead of complaining they individually did not advancement transgender kids are high risk for dropping out of school. addiction, being homeless. if they want to pursue something so positive as team sport that's going to benefit the team, that's going to benefit that school and going to be a great role model for other kids, why thought embrace and encourage that. abby: here is the thing though there, interest a number of people involved in this, right? according to this mom we had
on the show yesterday she said there are also kids that feel like they don't get a fair shake here. it's not a fair competition. >> that's my argue: you can't make something fair for one group by making it unfair for another group. so the reality is. i mean, i'm a male. i played college sports. college baseball, and i have a different anatomy. i'm stronger and it's just the way it is. i understand people transgender identify a certain way i get that and understand that. when it comes to sports. if you have a hulking male transitioned to female playing on girl's softball team whatever it might that be may potentially be taking away a scholarship from somebody else. >> same argument that we have been making-that have been made about men and women 100 years ago about different races making more opportunities for under representative group is taking away opportunities. abby: can you say these are two different things, right? we are trying to have this conversation now as a nation. you have a 15-year-old daughter. how do you talk to her about this topic? >> i tell her to accept
people for how they feel. do not discriminate. you also have to face reality. if you are physically a male, that's what you are. in terms of competing in sports. and as far as, you know, race and like that, it's totally different. you are born a particular race. you can't help that and i understand that you are saying it's not a choice. but physically playing a sport against someone who can't compete with you. >> at some point i understand all. this at some point we have to reach into something known as common sense. that's what we are really flipping on as a society. >> what is the common sense in this conversation? >> that somebody is born physically as a male. whether they feel they are a female or not is one thing, which is fine, which we accept. if you are biologically born one way and take that into a playing field, it's unfair to the other group, to the females. >> way to make it fair is maybe allow them to have their own sports where they compete against other transgendered males who are born males but they feel
they are female. that way no one is being, you know, left out or feeling that it's unfair but to put them in an arena with females, that's not right. >> well, i think we should be looking at what the professional sports leagues are doing. so the women's national hockey league, for example, their rules have said if you identify as a male, i'm sorry, if you identify as a female and you are going through hormone therapy and they have threshold for how much testosterone addressing this very issue, then you are welcome into the league as an equal player. the challenge here is in high school kids they may not be choosing to go through hormone theater or sex reassignment because they are young, still young people and bodies not changing that's medically not recommended. if that's what they're going to be facing as professional athletes, let's apply a version of that to these young people and encourage this really positive thing. abby: we will leave it right there. this is certainly a debate that will continue, thank you so much for being with us. appreciate it. coming up on the show the trooper goes above and

listen. >> when you read the report almost like comey he goes point after point about how guilty hillary is but he said we're not going to do anything about it the ig report was a horror show. i thought that one sentence of conclusion was ridiculous. pete: now, some are asking if there is a double standard where comey, strzok, mccabe and clinton are concerned and if they will face justice and one of those people includes our next guest. former nypd commissioner bernie kerik spent time fo for -- you look at a report personal experience having served time for minor infractions after a full investigation digging into everything in your background, prosecutors get to pick and choose what they go after. what do you make of this inspector general report? >> pete, there is no greater threat to our democracy than
a government that weaponizes criminal justice system to target its citizens. in this case the target today of the president of the united states. prosecutors, they are not supposed to break the law to enforce it and that's what we have seen consistently over the last two years. there are tens of thousands of people sitting in prisoner for far less than hillary clinton did. i watched that 15-minute 38 second clip where jim comey outlines an outrageous indictment against hillary clinton only to say no reasonable prosecutor would bring that case that's a lie. i know it's a lie because they have done it to me and thousands of other people. don't tell me nobody would bring that case. obstruction of evidence, destruction of evidence. the classified material. you were in the military. people in the military sent one classified email.
pete: or took one photo. took one photo. sent it over a g mail account and went to jail. do not tell me that she shouldn't have been prosecuted and where was the impaneling of a grand jury if that was a real investigation, somebody threw the investigation. pete: a lot of details in there at love information in there. how do they with a straight face say well, ultimately, no bias here when ultimately the entire report shows nothing but bias from fbi agents. >> i don't know how they came to that conclusion. when you look at strzok, we are going to stop the election of donald trump. he's going to use. pete: is he in charge of the investigation. >> is he in charge of the investigation. is he going to use his power of the fbi to stop that investigation he is still working not been indicted. we have rod blagojevich elm

read. so headlines and my husband read the headlines what's going on our kids being put in cages? reason people are confused is because if you listen to some in the media, they will tell you things like this. >> it is their interpretation of the law. we are -- used to be america's greatest democracy. we can't find a solution to this problem without harming children. without putting them into concentration camps? >> i call this a concentration camp for kids because that's exactly what it's turning out. to say when you give kids 22 hours of lockup time and two hours of air time, what else can it be? and if this is where this country is going, the american people need to wake up and pay attention because your kids could be next. pete: michael steele, please. concentration camps? think about the verbiage the phraseology the implications, historically of what a concentration camp has meant.
whether it is the truest historical reference of nazi concentration camps gassing people, gassin gassing jews or japanese internment camps. in this particular case, we are enforcing the laws on the books for kids who are being treated very, very humanely because they didn't break the law. their parents did or whoever told them to come here did. as a result we are told they are in cages policy that existed before this administration. this administration is saying we have to created a disincentive for people to come here illegally and use kids as a vehicle to do. so last hour i laid out the schedule for these kids which includes school for many hours. recreation, soccer, movie night, meals, snacks, video games, pool tables. these kids are not being located um. they are being taken care you have until they can be reignited with caretakers or parents. >> this is over the top denialably to make that comparison. as abby brought up what is
the policy? this is why you wake up and tune into this show because we get you answers that you need the information, the facts and that is this law has origins under bill clinton, under bush, under obama and now having zero tolerance added to it but we asked the deputy commissioner ronald vitiello of the customs and border protection specifically in the past hour what is the real facts with this law? here is what he said. >> these laws have been on the books for quite some time. the population that we are arresting comes as part of a family or child alone. the child obviously cannot be prosecuted. but, when the family members brings them through this arduous journey putting them in danger, crossing the border illegally. we refer that parent for prosecution. the children are then taken to these hhs shelters and both given instructions how to contact each other once the court adjudication takes place. most of these kids that go to the shelter will be placed with a family member in the united states. we are trying to apply a
consequence to crossing the border illegally. abby: i thought the most absurd example over the past week of this conversation on immigration was that press briefing. i think it was on thursday where sarah huckabee sanders was pressed by a cnn reporter and he was basic ever basicing will shouting at her you are a mother. do you not have a heart. she had to calm down that room like they were her children. calm down here. that's the problem the narrative that if you are a republican it seems today and you want stronger border security and you don't have a soul, you don't have a earth harassment you want these children to be ripped out from their parent's arms. the president has said this him sufficiently he said this yesterday on the north lawn. no one wants kids to be separated from their parents. maybe to speak to the nation and write some powerful words. pete: pass the law. help this country understand what's going on. all have you is headlines in the media giving own perspective. talking about concentration
camps. media are the dumb ones, smart man. you know what a concentration camp looks like. one man's cohen centration camp according to mic steele is another man's shelter. fed, clothed, provided for. helped to contact their parents to be reunite you had. it's the parents. you broke the law and put your kid in jeopardy by crossing that border without waiting in line. without taking the proper process. that's where the finger should be pointed. this administration happens to be the one that says we are going to enforce that law and do so humanely. this is what the democrats smell. they have a campaign talking point. they want medicare for all. and trump puts kids in cages. that's what they want. that's what they are going to run on in the midterm election. people are not dumb. they realize that's not the truth. the reality is we are enforcing laws, treating kids humanely and. abby: not sustainable. that's what republicans on the hill are trying to figure out. they are going to look at immigration. can you expect that to happen next week. what do you do? have you hundreds of kids
being separated from their parents every single week. i think it's up to 2,000 over the last six weeks. this is going on. what do we do about it as a nation it's a tough conversation to have and i do think the president has a moment here to try to figure out how we move forward as a country on immigration. doesn't mean he can't be tough. pete: immigration bills coming out. build the wall, solve the problem and people can come here legally. griff: ron vitiello pointing out the impact this is having on agents men and women carrying out the law. that's not the only story in washington. because, i have read the 568 pages of the ig report so you would not have. to say we have talked a lot about it have you heard what's going on. james comey insubordinate. one of the things going to move forward abby this week in the hearing in the senate on monday and house on tuesday is peter strzok, that agent that had the 10,000 plus text messages
with lisa page. with him having an affair in the fact that peter strzok said we'll stop them in reference to president trump's campaign. that take away everyone has heard and whether anything is done. this individual, who saw himself as a future deputy director, according to these text messages is still drawing a paycheck working in the h.r. department. the question many are asking this morning is why. abby: unbelievable. peter strzok. so the text messages have you all seen by now how he was working hard to get trump at the time he was candidate. donald trump. he was heading the clinton probe. one of the top folks dealing with russia investigation. is he still employed. he still works in the hr department. is he still getting paid by taxpayers' money. unbelievable. so that is the big question. why is he still there but also should there be consequences for the other people that were involved, the other agents that are in this report that talked about president trump, that
talked about the people that support the president in such a negative way that should never be political. should we all move on from this and say okay let's learn from our mistakes or should action be taken? that's the question that will be asked. griff: if you ask former fbi agents like terry turchie who was on our air he says absolutely accountable. while horowitz' ig report says that comey wasn't influenced by bias, he left the door open that strzok may have been with reardz to placing a higher priority on the russia investigation. pete: watching the horowitz' report come out was like watching th comey press conference. trump was right: he i will spend 15 minutes talking about why she is guilty and say. and then talk about how biased they are and maybe bias never happened. amazing and effects a department which most people at the fbi do a great job. griff: we will see. abby: the president pointed out there. are over 100,000 people within doj.
many of them are doing the job well and aren't political. it's sad they have to deal with this. but, michael horowitz will be in the hot seat as well as christopher wray. >> he has another report coming out. ainsley: we are digesting all of this morning. i want to bring you other headlines starting with a fox news alert. a second sheriff's deputy dying overnight after being attacked by inmate. theresa king and patrick roar shot and killed in kansas city. investigators believe the suspect grabbed one of their guns and they escorted him into court. we heard a shot. seep an officer shot in his head and seen another officer losing his life on the floor. >> a 14 year veteran of the force and roar served seven years. suspect antwon fielder also shot. he has a long criminal history including murder charges. a man under arrest blockading himself inside armored car.

and the author of "the case against impeaching trump" alan dershowitz. good morning. >> good morning. griff: what is your reaction. >> thousands of people today in jail before they have been convicted of any crime. many minorities, now paul manafort joins them based on an indictment. indictments are not supposed to have any real impact qui still have a presumption of innocence. under the law manafort is no more guilty of contacting witnesses or attempting to obstruct justice than any of us. the government says he did it he says no he didn't do it. he didn't know witnesses. conversations entirely innocent. why does the government get to win without a hearing or trial. put anymore in jail enormous pressure on him not only to sing but perhaps even compose as one of the judges put it i think it's very, very unfair. not the only person in jail today for being indicted. there are tens of thousands
of people. there is something very wrong with the system that presumes guilt this way. pete: is this part of a public show, a demonstration that they are cracking down on trump, that the noose is tightening? is this part of composing? >> well, it's part of pressure. if paul manafort were part of the campaign, nobody would have ever looked into his background, his lobbying. nobody would be monitoring and finding out whether he is calling witnesses. you know, it's the most natural thing in the world when you are under investigation to see if maybe the witnesses should tell the truth. i'm a lawyer. i know you are not supposed to do it. but most people don't understand that before he is put in jail, there should have been an evidentiary hearing, a mini trial in which he could present his defense. he could call witnesses. and only then do you put somebody in jail. you can get the grand jury to indict a ham sandwich as the chief judge of new york once put it prosecutors just play with grand juries. they tell them what to do.
there are 23 chairs lined up to be moved around by prosecutors. and the idea that we now put people in jail based on what a grand jury does, hearing only one side of the case. not the only side of the case really is obnoxious to our constitution. abby: your thoughts, because we have been talking about the ig report all morning. we had rudy giuliani on yesterday and he says they are doubling down and don't want to cooperate moving forward because they feel that it was tainted that the early days we now know peter strzok leading the early russia investigation during the campaign, now we know how he truly felt about the president and other high up agents how they felt. do you think the president and his team are making the right move by saying how can we take this seriously? we now know the real motives from the beginning. >> i think the more important thing is the ig report makes it clear that there was justification for firing comey. comey is really the villain of the report. for his own personal benefit, reputational benefit. he tried to have it both ways. he thought hillary clinton would win the election. therefore, he would provide
information against her and then if she won the election. the trump people couldn't complain. it was just completely designed to help his reputation and he should have been fired. hillary clinton would have fired him. president trump should have fired him on day one. and once the president has some justification for engaging in actions under article 2 of the constitution, you can't start questioning his motive. you also have another reason. was he happy that he was fired so that the russia thing could come to an end? once we start probing the motivations of presidents, we are doing law by psycho analysis rather than law by actions. all right, professor, thank you. we have to leave it there but a lot to think about. al al always good to see you. pete: all based on the thought that hillary clinton would win. abby: can't stop using you have garl language to attack the president. the next guest is a hollywood conservative who has had enough. >> i want to say one thing, [bleep] trump. it's no longer down with

[bleep] trump. [cheers and applause] it's no longer down with trump. it's [bleep] trump. pete: very original. some conservatives in hollywood have had enough. including our next guest. you know best for when he starred in the hit sitcom "home improvement." actor and producer zachery ty bryan joins us now. we are all big fans of the show. abby: we grew up watching you. pete: 100 percent we all did so we are all fanning out here. you follow hollywood. you are part of it. is it just predictable at this point on original. what do you make of the
hysteria? >> well, you know, i think hollywood -- they are just kind of in this echo chamber. you know, it's kind of similar to like the establishment in washington. i feel that they never thought they were penetratable. barack for 8 years and going into hillary for next four to eight years. you had donald trump come along and win the election it caught irving off guard. we are kind of seeing their reaction and it's been fun to watch. abby: i imagine though, being in hollywood, you are only allowed from what we see from afar, you are only allowed to you have one perspective, it has to be anti-trump. have you got to be angry. you have got to be upset about what's going on. what's it like for you because you are someone who has different political opinions. you grew up outside of the hollywood media elite. you grew up on a farm. is that right? >> that's correct. yeah, my family is originally from southeastern colorado. we grow wheat, corn, and milo. yeah, it is different.
surprisingly there is a lot more conservatives in hollywood than you would expect. they don't necessarily talk about it you know, yeah, it reminds me kind of like high school. have you got the cool click. they think everybody should be like them. party of tolerance and acceptance is only accepting if you agree with them. pete: of course, part of the group think. exactly right. >> there is new wave. the pend lump is swinging the other way and i'm proud to be part of it. pete: part of the anti-pendulum is kathy griffin. she had famously held up the bloody head of our president. she is now attacking kevin hart. a black comedian, funny guy, because he doesn't hate trump enough. listen to what kathy griffin said about kevin hart. she said, look, if you want to not hear about trump at all, go see kevin hart. he doesn't even mention trump. i personally think that's a [bleep] move because is he a black man but i guess he is selling more tickets than i
ever will. kevin hart has decided my stand up routine doesn't need to be about president trump. there is plenty of things to laugh about. yet, that's not okay. >> yeah, to be honest, i don't know his political beliefs. but i appreciate that he doesn't throw it in our faces. i'm a fan of his. and it is funny to me with kathy griffin and i hate even legitimizing her with what she did it actually really irks me. it's kind of funny to think that you should have a political stance just because of the color of your skin which is supposedly what they're against. i'm a big fan of his. he makes me laugh. i'm glad to go watch him in standup or one of his films and laugh and get away from our world. that's ultimately what our business is here for not to express our political opinion. abby: that was something that i loved about home improvement the show we all knew you from. we grew up with that show it was about family values and
highlighted what so many families go through the ups and downs. do you think we'll see more shows like that on television? i think there is such a need for that today. you can take the politics out of it, but get back to just families being a family. >> absolutely. that's what i loved about home improvement. i thought at the end of evidence open sewed you kind of walked with a moral lesson. i think you will start to see that you know, they are bringing tim allen's show back to fox "last man standing." which i'm really happy for him. i think you will start to see. you know, we're kind of living in two different countries. have you got middle america and kind of got big cities. and i think with roseanne, you kind of saw in hollywood that there is this demographic that really needs to be reached. it was unfortunate with what roseanne said and did but i think you will start to see that and we need to start getting back to kind of our traditional values in my opinion because we have lost that. and a lot of things happening in the world i think are because of losing
that family background. abby: such a great point. zachery, great have you having you. can you come back some time. >> i would love. to say. pete: come to new york sometime, too. thank you so much. >> i would love to. abby: lindsey graham sending a strong message to his critics. >> if you don't like me working with president trump to make the world a better place, i don't give a [bleep].

programs than it already has on trump's watch. there is lot to be thankful for for president obama. griff: christian you don't agree. >> emerged iran,na, every foreign threat got worse under obama. and the trump administration and i was over at the state department for the early support of the administration we put pressure on china, pressure on north korea, beat isis by taking the lawyers out of the decision loop and letting our warriors do weigh that he had needed to do to defeat isis in north korea exn. exchange for virtually nosmght donald trump has gotten them to stop nuclear testing. destroy engine testing facility. destroy their nuclear test facility. and agree to disarm. looking pretty good. griff: let me interject this, joel that is at the end of the day you both agree we are safer for different reasons. the safety of americans couldn't be more important and yet the left huffs and puffs over the fact that
president trump is making us less safe. why shouldn't we go back to the days when politics stopped at the water's edge. >> we really should and the problem is that foreign policy has been politicized. president obama was the virostkvictim of that he brougha nuclear deal towards completion with iran that republicans in the congress said preemptively they were not going to support even though there had been bipartisan support for diplomacy for years he was following on. now we are at a point where we don't have the bipartisan. but deep among the national security establishment. threats are on the hoards and deep concern abouand -- horp concern about where we are heading. griff: what do you see the administration doing next to keep us safe? >> i think we are going to plow ahead. the president has just announced some very important tariffs on china under section 301 which is finally pushing back against china's theft of u.s. intellectual property.
and also evening some of these trade relationships we have with other countries with the eu, with canada and mexico. all of these countries have much higher tariffs on us than we have on them. so finally fixing that. and getting tough with china increasing the military. so we can deter war with china rather than entourage it through weakness. >> thank you very much. important discussion, nobody better to talk. to say have a great saturday. >> thank you. griff: more evidence of bias in the fbi this time against trump voters. employee saying they are all poor, unindicated and lazy. herman cain is here to respond next. plus, seeing double. isn't happy with nike's new logo. now nike is taking action ♪ ♪

sex problem. totally separate. he comes across on an toney winier's laptop. emails a lot of them, 600,000. pete: between hillary and huma. griff griff he notified headquarters, james comey, sean mccain, he sends it down in beginning of september, timeline, september 29th, i believe, it is, he discovers the emails. he sends down to washington hq. it's not a month later october 28th that comey acknowledges that these e-mails have been found and this agent has said that when he was interviewed by horowitz, i was sounding the alarm, doing anything i could to get them to pay attention and he was absolutely ignored. abby: here is the quote from the fbi agent, the crickets i was hearing was really making my uncomfortable because something
was crashing down. i'm telling you we have 10 times the volume that director comey said we had on record. i'm a little scared here. i don't care who wins the election, but this is going the make us really, really horrible and the next question, pete, why did a whole month period go by when you had the ranking file alerting folks at the top, why were they focused on the -- the collusion with trump or were they focused on russian collusion there, were they thinking that hillary clinton was going to win election and not give tit focus it deserves. pete: peter strzok was in charge of hillary clinton investigation and trump investigation. this report while thorough and thick feels like 50 pages of all the things they did wrong, bias, a couple of pages, oh, by the way, we have to claim that there wasn't bias, what i love about
this what you found on page 303, ranking-file guy, doing his job, lab lab -- laborous work. this is a bombshell, this is a disconnect between the average women and men at fbi. just like comey when they let hillary off the hook, they let these folks off the hook. griff griff just for the record, the horowitz analysis wraps the chapter says that action could and should have been taken on the part of fbi. abby: these are the questions that are going to be asked monday and tuesday, you will have michael horowitz, also christopher wray head of fbi, they are going to be grilled i'm guessing by members of house on
tuesday, they are going to ask them should there be action taken against action that is were flagged about these emails about one example. how come nothing was done. you listen to james comey, watched him throughout the media tour, they act as if they know all, everything that they did was done the right way and you see the report, how do you get away with this, how can there not be consequences? pete: two standards for the regular folks and folks at the top and if anyone who is discrediting the report is james comey and if anyone has validation for firing it's donald trump which is what he said yesterday, there shouldn't be two standards for justice in this country, if you look at the evidence on how it was handled with hillary clinton, clearly there was. griff: going back to what i was first talking about, amazing moment when the president came out and talked to steve doocy and we took 30 plus minutes live. president didn't talk two reporters but -- abby: cameras

>> rudy says you should not talk to mueller. >> a lot of people say that, people are afraid that. i would like to talk but it seems to be very bias. i did nothing wrong. there was no collusion. there was no obstruction. >> but, mr. president -- pete: president trump on "fox & friends" yesterday responding to calls for end to mueller investigation as bomb shell ig report revealed significant bias inside the fbi. my next guest a democrat agrees and has been repeatedly attacked for it but is he and the president now vindicated. joining us now former senior adviser to the clintons, mark penn, thank you for being here this morning. ig that came out, does it vaind -- vindicate that bias was on president trump and bias for secretary? >> the report reveals culture of bias that was present in the fbi
and you see it in all of the decisions that were made both in hillary investigation and the ig really does slam peter strzok saying, you know, it's pretty clear whether it was biased or not on hillary, he obviously was biased against trump and that could have been a very significant reason that this whole thing got started in the first place. pete: mark, you say it's clear that there was a culture bias. some of those same individuals are still there, would there not be a culture of bias, is there still a culture of bias in ongoing mueller probe? >> doesn't look like house has been cleaned based on reports, based on these actions. look, i think it's pretty clear that in the future if we ever do investigations of campaigns and presidents again which i'm generally against without the strongest evidence based on my having ken star many years ago, they have to be teams of democrats and republicans.
they can't be teams that are clearly biased, the whole ideas of these investigations is that they be fairer and it's obvious that the mueller investigation is -- look at what happened to paul manafort. harvey weinstein committed physical crimes is out on a million dollars bail and manafort is denied bail. he had terms before that were bernie for tax evasion in 2006 and indict him again and again. it is not about finding crimes in people. it is about using the entire apparatus of the state against people, exactly what the eighth amendment and the rest of the constitution was about. pete: mark to your point, the president calls them 18 angry democrats. you talk about the ig report, over 500 pages. even this report, though, is redacted, has been through scrubbings of different agents r
we ever going to get to the bottom as to whether hillary clinton was given treatment? >> you can read it with your -- with your own standard. by any reasonable standard, if you -- i'm really amazed. here is a fellow who works for an it company, he knows there's a congressional subpoena, he destroys the emails, he lies repeatedly about it. the clearest crime flouting a congressional subpoena i have ever seen and the clearest crime in this entire thing and he's ignored. this is incredible. pete: yes, evidence after evidence of bias, somehow they tell us there's no bias. we are not stupid. mark penn, thank you very much for your time. appreciate your insight. >> thank you. pete: a lot of rhetoric surrounding immigration debate now reaching pitch levels,
listen. >> we can't find a solution to the problem without hurting children and putting them in concentration camps? pete: two republican bills go up for a vote. the president weighing in, we will bring it to you right now. bam hit the truck. try explaining that to your insurance company. woman: another ding, another scratch. it'll just be another chapter in the story. every scar tells a story, and you can tell a lot more stories when your truck is a chevy silverado. the most dependable, longest-lasting, full-size pickups on the road. i'm a tin can tied to your bumper, cause.... i don't think enough people heard about your big day. but nothing says "we got married" like a 12 ounce piece of scrap metal. yo! we got married! honk if you like joint assets. now you're so busy soaking up all this attention, you don't see the car in front of you.

weighing on that debate moments ago tweeting this democrats can broken law at border, this is why we need more republicans elected in november. democrats are good at only three things, high taxes, high crime and obstruction. sad. all right, here to debate lisa boothe, fox news contributor and senior fellow at women's voice and julie alvin, liberal analyst. lisa, look, you've got two sides, president blaming democrats, policies go back to democrats when they were in control, we are enforcing the laws and then you have democrats who say republicans don't have a heart, they don't have a soul, they want the children to be separated, listen to the media, they are saying the kids are held in concentration camps, where does this end? anyway you see in the near future a solution? >> immigration has been a nuance and complicated issue that's why the daca issue has not gotten solved under different administrations and even in congress where democrats had
majority. it's nuance, it's very complicated but i do think there's a deceptiveness and interpretational deceptiveness in handling president trump's immigration policies. there's a daily best article and daily beast is no right-wing publication saying how you can blame obama when it comes to children. look no further than the photo that we saw that went viral by journalists, by president obama's speech writer shows undocumented children in holding cells, dine feinstein ignored president obama's immigration policy and now she's paying attention to this. and i think president trump is being handled in an entirely different way and it's unfair. abby: you have a republican in control right now of the house and the senate, democrats have made it clear they want change when it comes to immigration,
they want to make something happen, in order to do that you have to work with the other side, you have to be able to have a give and a take, that's what the president tweeted, are they willing to do do that in good-faith? >> i think that they are, this is an issue that's become clear that thousands of children have been separated from families at the border, often without the ability to say goodby, the ability to reach each other without they are knowing, children taking away from parents while breast feeding. this is horrific situation at the border and democrats are motivated right now to negotiate on the issue. i think there are couple of bills that might potentially please democrats. when we talk about deception and rhetoric policy to say it's a democratic policy that's separating children from parents at the border, that's a lie, not true, i would urge the people to look it up themselves and make judgment, specifically the way the trump administration's
announced may seventh have decided to handle the immigration crossings that is separating parents from their children. this did not happen to this degree under the obama administration. >> it's the blame game, lisa, that's getting us nowhere. we saw the exchange and you had the playboy reporter, analyst at cnn basically berating her, you're a mother, do you not have a heart. unfair moment as i was watching i thought why are we blaming each other. >> it's a fair question and it was done in a manner in which he was seeking media attention and look this issue is more nuance than the way that it's being discontinued. you look at the florida settlement, court case, the trump administration has three options, separate the families, they can either, if a law needs to be passed to keep the families together or they can let them go, we know that "the new york times" has even stated
that the family aspect is being abused as are intentionally coming over as a family unit because they believe that they will be released into the united states earlier as a result. we also know that's reported that that is being taken advantage of, the children are being entrusted as smuggler as favor or profit. it's not clean cut as people would like to make it out to be and in regard to legislation next week, it's not just republicans are going to be split on which bill to pass, two bills that will be considered but also democrats, henry said that he doesn't want to vote for anything that has border funding in it. it's not just republicans but democrats are split on the issue. goes back to my original point, the nuance at how complex and complicated this issue is to solve. abby: all right, julie, last word. >> i hope that we solve this problem, i think that nobody wants to see the families separated at the border. i think that, you know, the sooner we can get to negotiating
table and make real change when it comes to this, it's crucial but i -- i don't think it's fair to blame the democrats for what's happening. abby: the democrats ask democrats to speak to him. we will see how it comes because real change needs to be made. coming up in the show, remember the navy sail or president trump pardoned who said this about james comey. >> the true enemy of the state isn't the serviceman taking pictures of something that's he's proud of, the people changing the laws to benefit cronies. abby: so what does he think now that comey used personal e-mail to conduct fbi business, we will ask just ahead, you don't want to miss that. more estimates pointing to 4% gdp growth, stuart varney is live, he is going to tell you what it means for you and your bank account, you don't want to miss it people would stare.

he's talking about and he's with us outside. stuart varney host of varney & company, big shout-out from the big man yesterday. stuart: that had impact, let me tell you. it's flattering for an immigrant to get a shout out from the president of the united states, very flattering, indeed. pete: stuart, is he really giving you aut-out or giving gig the economy which you say is 4% already. stuart: you're dead right, the president was giving a shout-out to the economy because in the quarter that we are now in, april through the end of june, we we have achieved almost 4% growth. we haven't seen that in four years and four years ago we only did it for one quarter. my point is, prosperity has returned and that's extremely important. abby: why wasn't hi asked about that? he spoke to steve doocy and media gaggle for almost 30 minutes and i didn't hear one question about the economy. stuart: those reporters want to get him, all they want is
got-you questions, north korea, children in cages, nothing about the economy, not a single question. in my opinion the return to prosperity is the most important factor in america today. we are a divided society, what brings you back together, prosperity. everybody trying to climb the food chain. prosperity is the glue that binds us together and that's where we are right now. pete: we were told jobs aren't coming back, america may not lead the world yet. economic growth in the u.s. leads the world behind. what has been the biggest fuel for us leaving the world behind? stuart: tax cuts and deregulation, flat out, that's what's done it. we have input amount of money to work in the private sector. think about it, you're a business, back in a day, maybe 30% of your profits would go to government, now maybe 20% of your profits go to government. that extra 10% is a chunk of money that you have available to invest in the private sector of
the economy, private-sector investments it's much more important than giving it to the government. that's why we are growing close to 4% now and i think it might get -- abby: what about the tariffs. the president is putting billions of dollars in tariffs. you can expect headlines to be out throughout period of time that it's harmful to the economy, what's the reality? stuart: tariffs will affect a minuscule proportion of that overall number. i don't think the impact will be very significant and i think the president is simply using tariffs as leverage to get more of the american interest in the trade situation. i don't think we are in a trade war and i don't think we are going towards a trade war in the future. griff: i remember during clinton
administration, is the economy stupid, we don't hear the economy is stupid. stuart: i wonder why? the democrats do not have a growth plan and i will repeat what i said to you on friday, i think, if the democrats won the presidential election, if hillary was the president today, you would not have 4% growth. you would not have a 3.8% unemployment rate. you would have -- i don't know what you would have, but you would not have prosperity. democrats don't have a blame. abby: abdomen you see it lasting? stuart: at least through the rest of the year. we haven't had the full impact of the tax cuts. i'm not going to say we are going to get 5% or 6% growth, that's a bit of a stretch. but 4% for a couple of quarters to come, i think it's going to happen. pete: the president loves stuart varney, we love stuart varney. abby: good to see you. to other headlines, road rage
now to blame in a shooting that left a 13-year-old boy dead and his mom and brother fighting for their lives. police say jeremy webster followed the family to a parking lot in colorado after some sort of argument, he also shot witness, court records show webster admits to shooting and claims he has mental health issues, he now faces mental health charges. horrible story. state trooper going above and beyond to take down a suspect, stop what you are doing, the trooper diving head first and tackling the man in arizona, the whole thing caught on highway cameras. it started with the suspect refuse today pull over a -- for a traffic stop, officials say he had drugs and facing a long list of charges. kim kardashian is not ruling out a job in the capitol. >> would you ever run for
office? >> i guess never say never. that's not what i'm going for. abby: she enjoys using platform to help people. her husband, of course, kanye west said he would run for president. nike is apologizing after unveiling a near identical logo, the company halting the release of new fashion line after social media backlash, some critics online even calling it stolen va lor and can be seen on class rings and school merchandise. you can't get away with that stuff anymore. pete: isn't invitation the biggest form of flattery. >> i'm trying to imitate your hair, pete.

submarines says he's plan to go sue james comey and the obama administration. pete: what does he think after being revealed in inspector's report that comey used personal e-mail to conduct fbi business, joining us now former navy sail or christian. thank you for being with us. you took a couple of photos innocently. you admit it was not the right thing to do but you were punished for it and the president pardoned you. james comey, is investigating hillary clinton for her own personal e-mail use, he's doing it at the same time, is there a double standard here? >> oh, absolutely. well, thanks again for having me on the show and you're absolutely right. the issue here is they weren't willing to prosecute her because they were breaking the same laws. you know, does that make it okay in no. i broke protocol by taking pictures, no mal intent, based on standards to prosecute hillary clinton they shouldn't have prosecuted me. the fbi was breaking protocol
and taking bribes and conspiring against presidential candidates and they recommend in ig report is training. how is that okay? griff: christian,he day that your attorney decided that you guys were going to sue comey and the obama administration, your attorney told me that he was waiting on report. we know that james comey that had -- had personal account. are we expecting filing soon? >> it's pretty clear now. a huge blow to excuses that they've made the whole time that they didn't know what they were doing was wrong or that the investigation was run fairly. i think it's pretty clear that there was serious bias within the fbi against certain individuals and they weren't conducting fair investigations, so this is just irrefutable proof. it's given us all the proof we need to go forward with lawsuit.
pete: you used the word intent, you did not have malice, you made a mistake and punished for it and they hold hillary clinton for it, her intent wasn't to hurt the country even though she broke laws in the country, why does intent matter for you but -- doesn't matter for her? >> you know, like i said they manipulated the law to prosecute me and not prosecute her. people if james comey status should be held to different status. they should be willing to take responsibility for their actions at much higher level to set example and they clearly aren't willing to do that. griff: christian, is this something in ig report that you think stands out that really hasn't been talked much about because there are so many
parallels to what happen happened to you? >> oh, absolutely. they speak about in there that, you know, so many people, it was ramping within the state department, using personal emails to transmit highly-classified emails. they would have to prosecute the other people. it's perfectly okay not to exercise the law as long as it's too difficult to do but it's okay when you have just one person like myself to just destroy their life. it's very upsetting and i think that our lawsuit -- we are taking a stand here. i think the american people should take a stand and say enough is enough. obviously they are not going to police themselves. pete: i love your point. in the military we are trained to hold leaders to even higher standards which means -- it's such a great point so often missed. thank you for your time. >> thank you forking are me. pete: you've got it. griff: with summer left than a week away it's time for you to start prepping your yard, we
