rosenstein, you even have jeff sessions, one of the president's earliest and biggest supporters standing behind the fbi that there was no bias and this is being b of proportion for political reasons, that's tough to get around if you're the president, sessions is his guy? >> i think the president has wants to see this thing and the other thing happening, play out by wednesday of this week, you have devin nunes and trey gowdy insisting that if they don't turn over documents, they will have to probably hold him in contempt and if not take some other constitutional remedies is the word and phrase that they use in order to compel his testimony to come out and they're going to demand that these people be prosecuted. we are talking about rosenstein and sessions, why won't they turn these documents over. jillian: you just mentioned ago christopher wray defending fbi, extremely defensive, look, there
2:33 am
are thousands of agents that are doing jobs on a daily basis, yes, they are fair. when you have what's been going on at the top, that's inexcusable in a lot of people's opinion, you have them saying that they will do new training at the top. what do you expect to hear from him today, do you expect him to come out tougher than last week? >> i don't think the senators will let him set back and just say, hey, there's going to be new training because it's not the ranking file that's been the problem, you the senior most that don't allow congress to do their oversight jobs and responsibilities, remember that text you put up, oh, you know, can become president. that was redacted. ths no classified intelligence there. there's nothing of national security, embarrassing, illuminating the bias that was inject intoed this and if you gien -- dwien that with the second phase, horowitz did investigation of e-mail probe but now also doing investigation into the potential fisa abuse going into a court and trying to

2:35 am
>> if you want to claim asylum you can go into united states embassy of country of origin. listen to what the homeland security is saying go, to port of entry and claim asylum. it's the people that are going in between that are trying to cross the border and you know what -- rob: that's where the po comes in at separation. >> don't pretend that every one of the kids is matched up with mom or dad. that is not the case, you have way too many people that are used as drug mules and others that are being pushed and thrust across the border, you 14, 15-year-old kids that are exploited to make drug runs, again, you have to take every case individually, but, yeah, if you have a 4 or 5-year-old kid, of course, you want to be close proximity to the mom as you possibly can but there's awful a lot of human trafficking that's also going down on that border. don't be naive to that. jillian: thank you for joining

2:43 am
irresponsible and unproductive, she goes onto say, we do not have a policy of separating families at the border, period. for those seeking asylum at ports of entry we have continued the policy from previous administrations and we will only separate if the children is in danger, there's no custodial between relationship between family members or if the adults have broken a law. she's trying to set the record straight here and folks on social media agree with her, glen says, if they didn't break the law, they wouldn't get arrested. if they tried to enter the correct way and go plus proper processions they wouldn't have the issue. john al says, stay tough secretary and steve also says, somehow is our fault if people did not try to enter the country illegally we would not have the conversation. there's a whole lot of outrage over the policy, some calling cruel and unnecessary including former first lady laura bush who wrote op-ed criticizing it. jillian: seems like what she's saying, they're just following policy that was in place that

you very much. [laughter] rob: president trump supporter disrupting robert de niro broadway play wit keep america great flag, this is what happened during curtain call in bronx, the man escorted out of the theater, de niro also starred in that film many years ago, just last week, de niro was credit sighed for profane remarks aimed at the president at the tony awards. taxpayers being force today pay up to fund former president obama's presidential library. the state of illinois approving nearly 200 million bucks of taxpayer funds for infrastructure projects near the new center in chicago, the project anticipated to cost more than a half billion dollars in total, it cost $250 million t build the george w. bush presidential center in dallas, texas, the jfk library reportedly cost $20.8 million, jillian. jillian: protect the house, ivanka trump said to headline
2:51 am
multiple fundraisers this signaling the administration's priority to help republicans maintain seats in left-leaning state. here now to debate it is democratic strategists jill and conservative millennial, thank you for joining us this morning. joel, i will start with you, what do you think it means that ivanka trump is going out there to california? >> i'm not sure, it's actually a very good question. i don't think of ivanka trump as much of a person that's going to whip up the conservative base out there on the campaign trail, but obviously they feel that's what's going to help push them over the edge. i will say this, what i would do if i was republicans with less worry about who is going to headline fundraisers and try to do things like coming up with a policy that most californians might support, you look at the immigration policy, i can't imagine that's too popular out there in california where you have a diverse population and you've got an administration that's actually separating families at the border.
2:52 am
so i would focus on that as oppose to having ivanka trump headlining fundraisers. >> we did talk about immigration policy moments ago, do you agree with what he had to say? >> well, i think it shows that the republican party is taking california seriously despite the fact that the blue wave that california expected to have in the primaries is really nothing more than a ripple. we have been hearing for months how california is the path for victory for house democrats and that just doesn't look like it's going to be the case, however, i commend kevin mccarthy and republican party taking it seriously and doing what they can to solidify the seats and even possibly to win seats in orange county, it's what we need to do. jillian: you mention it's a ripple, joel, do you agree or disagree with that? >> listen, november is a long time away, anyone who could sit here and try to characterize what will happen then, i wouldn't quite do that. i have seen congressional races
2:53 am
turned within the last 3 months. i'm certainly going to be watching as anybody else would, but i would say this, democrats have performed very well in special elections, republicans are up against the wall to defend unpopular president particularly in a place like california. look at across the country in places like pennsylvania as well, the president is up against the wall and republicans and that's why you have seen record number of republicans retiring around the country because they don't want to defend the president and the administration's policies. jillian: go ahead. >> actually the president has -- the president has gotten more and more popular especially as the economy is booming and so that's one of the problems that democrats fe, are people who uld may vote democra going to say, hey, the economy is doing pretty well, i'm doing pretty well in particular california where budget was approved to keep gas tax still high despite the fact that there's a surplus in the state. i think taxpayers are going to look at that, look at president trump's policies and say, hey, we are doing pretty well.
2:54 am
