political bias. >> took a moment to hug the american flag. he did that as you can't always get what you want played in the background. ♪ ♪ justth way you look at me ♪ makes me smile ♪ ain't no reason to complicate it. steve: we're up to wednesday, june 20th. "fox & friends," another slow day yesterday. brian: nothing to talk about. brian: clips of us racketing to yesterday's news. steve: man o man. brian: florida georgia line one of their new releases. >> it's about simple. steve: all right. we're going to keep it simple today and just tell you what's going on in the news. first of all, you know, the president of the united states went up to capitol hill to talk last night to the house republicans, try to get something through he
3:02 am
endorsed intern. hard pass passage to the u.s. rotunda said f you. didn't like that. as it turns out. mexico ever the congressional hispanic caucus heckled him, which is extraordinary as he was trying to leave his meeting. ainsley: kirstjen nielsen heckled at mexican restaurant. here we go. mr. president, don't have you kids? don't have you kids? the president has made it clear that he does not want as every american want these families to be separated. listen to this. >> we have a chance. we want to solve this problem. we want to solve family separation. i don't want children taken away from parents. and when you prosecute the parents for coming in illegally, which should happen, you have to take the children away now, why don't have to prosecute them but we're not prosecuting them for coming in illegally.
3:03 am
that's not good we wants to end the border crisis by finally giving giving us the legal authorities to detain and remove illegal immigrant families all together and brings them back to their country. glrlg so the president after he got screamed at and, you know, his security walked him by. walked him through. he went into a closed door meeting and he met with republican house members and he said about -- he looked at both plans and said i will back either one of them. might be a mistake to not get behind one of them in particular. also brought up the fact that ivanka went up to him dad can you 1068. this his answer was this is a tough issue. politically it's also bad. it's not about politics. it's about doing the right thing. republicans want to get to the bottom of it. they want to solve it pass legislation which includes the end of separation and
3:04 am
families. but senator schumer does not want that. he says i just want the president to sign an executive order that says this is over. why not solve the whole issue about border security and daca? because i think it's in many respects democrats seem to be getting a lot of traction from it. senator schumer tweeted like six of them. speaker ryan wants to pass a massive bill may not even pass the house and couldn't pass the senate. and suppose g.o.p. are supposedly eyeing a bill and donald trump wouldn't sign and sign it even if it made his desk. president of the united states continues to try to use separated families as hostages. anyone who believes republican congress is capable of addressing this issue ising kidding themselves. donald trump can end this crisis with the flick of his pen. and he needs to do so now. you, and not the law, are responsible for this family
3:05 am
separation policy. g.o.p. senators and members of your own administration have confirmed. this you could reverse this terrible practice in a few minutes. but you refuse to list a finger. why would be left with 80% coming without their parents. separation wouldn't even apply because out of the 13,000 that have come, over 2,000 have come without parents. how does that solve the problem? steve: clearly chuck schumer just wants the focus on donald trump. here's the thing. if schumer not willing to fix it legislatively, how long is he willing to stand by that policy if donald trump digs in his heels and does not change anything? keep in mind the meeting brian was talking about, apparently members of the republican caucus the conference did not take questions did. not engage in any sort of discussion. he says we have to pass something. weave to take care of separation. it's too nasty. it's just too nasty. clearly members of the republican party wanted to press him on what are we
3:06 am
going to do about this? his answer is congress, fix it with some laws. ainsley: chuck schumer is complaining because children are being separated with his families. he want the president to fix it with a stroke of a pen and is he not willing to put forth legislation to fix it. right? brian: orrin hatch with other senate republicans caused for a pause on the. it would diffuse it and get out of it because emotions are running so high. griff will have that story a little bit later. i think it would benefit everybody if the president would have took some questions yesterday and heard input from republicans. number two, if you would pick one bill and say i'm getting behind this. that is the direction a lot of his party members who are loyal to him say i know exactly what he means. steve: goodlatte bill has no chance of passing. the other has a slim chance.
3:07 am
brian: mitch mccaul? steve: third way something we heard from john cornyn and mark meadows yesterday, they are introducing bills just to address exactly what we are taking about the separation of the family. ainsley: no want wants the celebration of kids uvmentd democrats and republicans need to get together be on the same page and figure this out. brian: let's figure out what you didn't see yesterday unless you picked it up streaming. not enough people were focusing on what was happening. this electric hearing with michael horowitz who is the ig and in front of republican and democrat house members. 70 strong. who got about 5 minutes each to question him. this thing went over five hours. and we did get two more names of the so-called unnamed lawyers and unnamed fbi agents. that were anti-trump. i find it hard to believe that if a democrat watched this, and just read the texts out loud, they wouldn't be just as upset as republicans. that the leadership of the
3:08 am
fbi. ainsley: the question is did his hate, did peter strzok's hate for this president, for president trump launch the fbi-russia probe? if you look at the time line it looks suspicious. because comey recommended no criminal charges against hillary clinton on july 5th, 2016. a few weeks later, july 28th, the fbi initiated the russia investigation. then a few weeks after that on august 6th, strzok, leading the russia investigation, sent these text messages with his lover, lisa page and she texted him you are meant to protect the country from a menace. steve: so the ig report is what sort of impact was strzok's role in the hillary clinton email debacle? so here's an exchange between mr. goodlatte of virginia and mr. horowitz of the department of justice. >> each institution has he gained in repeated stonewalling of congress' constitutionally man at a timed oversight. the infamous text from peter
3:09 am
strzok saying we will stop president trump from taking office, which we received on the day of your report's release is a prime example. do you believe this text shows political bias? >> i think as we found it clearly shows a biased state of mind. >> do you believe the political bias shown by this text had an effect on the issue in yalings of the russia investigation? >> that's a matter we have under review and are looking at right now. steve: that particular passage between strzok and page where is he not going to become president, is he, we are going to stop him. that was without a doubt the most damaging evidence to suggest bias with these fbi agents. and now we know that referred for investigation. nonetheless, to mr. goodlatte's points, the congress wound up with that text the day the ig report came out. you know, apparently, they had members of congress and the congressional investigators, they had the texts before it they had the texts after it.
3:10 am
but for some mysterious technical reason that particular text message was missing until the day of the ig report came out. brian: the way trey gowdy was able to drill down and get to that point is amazing. that's why he is going to be so missed. is he really zeroing in and pressed horowitz, at the end of it how could you possibly say there was no bias here. if you go into either report you can't possibly close it and say there is no bias. steve: he said there was bias. there was a lot of bias at the fbi. no doubt about it. but they said ultimately the bias did not impact the ultimate decision whether or not to prosecute hillary clinton. >> we will be talking about these stories and so much more in the headlines. ainsley: that's right. outrage now in california asous of force rules. the bill would elevate the standard for using deadly force from reasonable to necessary. pro-police groups say it could make officers hesitant
3:11 am
to approach suspects out of fear that they could be prosecuted later on. >> it always blows me away when law enforcement fear for their life only when they are facing black and brown people. ainsley: the measure is now headed for a second committee vote. north korea now preparing to send the remains of 200 service members killed during the korean war. more than 36,000 americans died in that war. close to 7700 remain unaccounted for. about 5300 of those that were lost in north korea, the exact time of the handoff is still in the works. and it comes after president trump and kim jong un's historical meeting this month in singapore. president trump heading to minnesota today. it's his first visit to the land of 10,000 lakes since taking office. the president will hold a round table event with representatives from the mining and steel industry, followed by a rally in duluth. president trump will be joined by republican congressional candidate pete

steve: well, as the immigration debate takes center stage nationwide and in our congress, there are more than 16,000 agents policing our southern border at this hour working to keep us all safe. ainsley: griff jenkins got a firsthand look at what it's like on the front lines. >> more illegal immigrants have been apprehended crossing the u.s.-mexico border hire in the rio grande day valley sector than at any other point of the entire u.s.-mexico border. many of them taking this very path. >> so, griff, this is one of the crossings that is

exclusively used by the cartels to smuggle family units. you can all the trash. >> this looks like a children's backpack. you see here a diaper. so, clearly, very small an infant that was brought here. >> that group we apprehended. the group of 17 crossed this very spot today. griff: they did? chief padilla has brought us where 17 migrants have been stopped, apprehended for crossing illegally. griff: chief, what do we have here? >> what have you here is a group of illegal aliens primarily composed of family units and potentially some unaccompanied children. griff: chief, frightened coming as uncompanied minor. >> she has heard that we treat them right. >> she has heard that we treat them right.

so this gentleman coming from guatemala. zero idea on zero tolerance policy. >> will these children be separated right now from their parents? will it happen at the center? what will happen to them? >> absolutely not. they are transported to the processing center. at that time we start running checks on the aconsults adults, see if there any criminal history, any immigration history. they are processed accordingly. if they are eligible for prosecution, we will prosecute the adult that's have entered illegally. when somebody is put through the process of prosecution, they are temporarily separated from the children. just like any u.s. citizen would be. it's a difficult situation. not idea but we reached numbers that have become a crisis. we need to get congress to do something with the immigration law and make sure that we can address the situation: these people are not trying to evade the border patrol. they are actually looking
3:19 am
for us to turn themselves in. and what happens with that is if there is no consequence to illegal entry. it keeps growing and growing and growing. then the calls come in. more illegals atimothying to cross. and the chase was on. >> right now this is a pursuit of an agent. sensor set it off and we are following up on this right now. >> these five were a group of 13 that the helicopters spouted. they are actually still working some of the groups. of course, we chased one back. that's what we call a turn back. >> that's what we call it turn back. when they make it back into mexico. >> they got away but at least you turned it back. >> it's a turn back. he will be back and we'll here. steve: there is a story out this morning the attorney general of the united states jeff sessions is considering using d.n.a. testing to make sure that the children match the people who say they are

3:25 am
extremist to speak to elementary school students on career day. our next guest's children previously attended that very school active law enforcement officer. he was also a member of the local council originally elected the principal. father in and dough flores joins us now fernando flores joins us now. he went off the rails in what way. >> he started attacking the police. the audience he was speaking to because up in wild wood the predominantly the city workers fire department, police officers, half of those kids in those classes are police officers' children. when you tell these children that your parents are killers and they are abusive and that they are racist. obviously somebody is going a little bit to heart. these children were very upset. went home and told their parents. it just snowballed and
3:26 am
escalated at that point. brian: evidently if you look at his social media it's pretty apparent how he feels after an officer was killed he posted online f him and f his entire family. he also posted the term cpdk which apparently stands for chicago police department killer. so he is pretty clear in what he believes. so, why was it necessary to book him as a poet? >> that's a good question. especially he touted himself as a poet and activist. okay. that's fine. i don't understand how lucrative that can be. but to take off on a tangent and attacking the police and, again, telling the children that their parents are killer is absolutely incorrect and his anti-beliefs, police bias not only here in chicago but across the nation and it's dangerous at this point where we are at. brian: so the principal has retired. was that the right move? >> i think she did what she thought was best for her.
3:27 am
brian: because it was going to get worse? >> i couldn't see it getting any better. brian: right. what is your sense about grade school kids? i will never forget ron covic who was pretty angry about the vietnam war spoke to our class when i was in grammar school and basically trauma tided the entire place. because of his views on war. i mean, what -- should there be a screening process before anyone is booked like they have in college? >> oh, absolutely. everybody needs to be vetted. i mean, how easy is it to find this kid's name and look him up on facebook and find out exactly what he is about, what he is promoting and see what his rhetoric is. brian: what are the parents saying? have you heard a lot of people rally behind you guys or the other way? >> oh, no. absolutely. everybody -- it's very positive. wild wood is a very tight knit community and they all came together because they know it's for the betterment not only for their children but for their neighborhood. brian: i understand that it
3:28 am
is becoming the murder -- chicago has become the murder capital of the country. what is your message to those on the outside. even those people watching in washington right now. what do you men and women need. >> we had 41 people shot. we had nine homicides. none of those are police-involved. how is that the police -- how are the police the problem at this point? i think together the community together with the police need to come to some kind of accord. i'm not really sure -- there is no clear cut answer at this point. but, something needs to be done. brian: national guard. that could be the answer. the president talked about that when he was a candidate. fernando flores, thanks so much. >> brian, you take care. brian: just know we don't echo those sentiments here and clear from anyone watching. ambassador nikki haley ripping the united nations yesterday as the u.n. withdrawals from the human

3:33 am
damages the cause of human rights. brian: when nikki haley gave those words at the u.n. and offered them right across town in new york city. many people thought of john bolton longest time once the u.n. ambassador for the united states of america and national security advisor at the white house. john bolton, great to see you again. now that you are not on the payroll here voluntarily. you wanted that decades ago, right? >> i thought she was exactly right. mic pompeo was right on target as well. this decision in many respects has been decades in the making. the human rights council its predecessor the human rights commission were really not places where human rights was a priority. right decision to defund the human rights council and the high commissioner for human rights and something i think that goes to the broader question of american sovereignty. you know, we are actually
3:34 am
self-governorring in this country. we have the constitution. we make our share of mistakes and we correct them. we don't need advice by the u.n. or other international bodies on how to govern ourselves. >> so, john, officially leaving bias israel and, in fact, between the years of 2006 through '16, this commission condemned israel 68 times, condemned sierra 20 times mghtd and condemned iran six times for comparative purposes. as well, it is raising some eyebrows us pulling out of this council because it follows one day after their high commissioner criticized the united states over president trump's immigration policy, separating families. >> it had nothing to do with that. this decision was made by president trump weeks ago, followed long decision-making and review of the human rights council's performance. and as i say, it's something
3:35 am
that reflects a widely held view in the united states. one reason why in 2006, when i was up at the u.n., we voted against creating this council because we said it was not adequately reformed. it would not change its behavior from its predecessor human rights commission. and the last 12 years have simply proven that i think what mike pompeo and nikki haley announced yesterday was exactly the right thing. it does have these broader implications for american sovereignty around the world. you know, we did talk about israel because it is singled out unfairly. in many respects, israel the saying goes canary in the mind shaft in the united states. countries that attack israel do it because they think it's easier, much of their criticism is really aimed at us. ainsley: many people watching that live in the middle of the country, just trying to get dressed for work this morning. they don't know what this council is. they don't know what this commission and committees are. will you just in layman's terms tell us for those folks watching never heard of this council what exactly it means for them at home?
3:36 am
>> i think getting off the council is an assertion of american determination to stick by its constitution. and not to recognize that there is some higher authority at the u.n. whether it's the council or the high commissioner for human rights to judge our performance or to give us advice on how to implement the constitution. we're perfectly capable of doing that. ourselves. we make our share of mistakes and we correct our mistakes. that's what this is about. self-government. brian: john bolton, we know the drama happened a couple of weeks ago as the president of the united states went to singapore to meet with the north korean leader. i know you were there every step of the way. what would you say is the most encouraging and discouraging thing that happened during the singapore summit? we know that the north korean leader is meeting with all world leaders maybe for the first time. he was in china a couple of days ago. what did we get out of that? >> well, i think the president made it very clear to kim jong un. he fates a decisive and dramatic choice. whether after decades of
3:37 am
development, north korea is prepared to give up its nuclear weapons program. its chemical and biological weapons. its ballistic missiles. and turn away from that approach to its international relations. and, if it does, it can have a very different future. brian: what do you think? if they were willing to do this for the first time in your career? >> well, they have said they would do it. i think now we will see secretary mike pompeo and others meeting with them, discussing it with them and we will find out soon enough, i think, whether they have made this strategic decision. steve: well, if they do then eventually the sanctions come off. at least some of them. how close are we to that. >> well, i think the first move here is really in -- for north korea to make. they said they want complete denuclearization. now we will have to talk about how to achieve that i think you will see diplomatic engagement proceed very quickly. president trump has been quite clear. he doesn't intend to make the mistakes of past
3:38 am
administrations. so, lengthy delay and talks i think are not in store. i think we would like to move quickly. if they are serious, north korea should want to move quickly, too. brian: if they are not. sanctions go back on and we urge the world community to do the same. what if the genie is out of the bottle and they won't? >> well, i think the presidents had made it very clear that they are facing a choice. and until we get real evidence, palpable, concrete steps of denuclearization. all the sanctions will stay in force. we are urging everybody to continue them. and we will watch very closely what north korea not only says but what it does. ainsley: proof is in the pudding. thanks so much. john bolton, we appreciate you being with us live. a convicted rapist caught on camera trying to kidnap a jogger arraigned from hospital bed. gordon lyons pleading not guilty to attempted kidnapping and assaulted while covering his face with a. she lyons was driving down a massachusetts street when he pulled over and tried to snatch a woman that was jogging by. she fought back, someone

3:48 am
first, i have to say the dramatic reduction of 2.2 million food stamp recipients in the first 18 months of a donald trump presidency is a step in the right direction because we know that a family of four receives an average of $465 a month in food stamp benefits. we know that's just not enough to sustain a family. and so it's a win because these folks are getting back to work it's a win for the president. it's a win for the nation. i think there are couple of factors that contribute to that dramatic reduction. i think the president has unleashed free enterprise. unleashed free enterprise by implementing rules, by cutting federal regulation. by signing the tax cuts and jobs act. that did exactly what it was intended to do. steve: and, marc, absolutely. and speaking of jobs, right

4:46 am
been escorted from fbi headquarters a couple of days ago. our next guest questioned horowitz on the hill yesterday. house oversight committee member congressman ron desantis. good morning to you, congressman. >> good morning. >> you know, it was jaw-dropping for the inspector general to admit, yep, there was bias. in fact, there was a lot of bias with these fbi agents. >> and the bias infected what strzok was doing. i mean, did you go back to the spring of 2016, donald trump beats ted cruz, indiana primary. nomination. what did strzok say to lisa page, pressure now begins to bring the clinton investigation to a conclusion. he was looking and saying we have got to stop trump. he was the one who did things like edit comey's statement onto remove gross negligence. he opens up the counter intelligence investigation against trump's campaign. based off almost nothing. and then a week after he does that is the infamous message that we got for the first time with the ig saying no, no, no.
4:47 am
trump won't win. we'll stop him. how will we stop him? he answered that question the next week when he texted lisa page and said we can't take the risk of a trump presidency. we need an insurance policy. so, this russia collusion thing was infected by bias from the start. the legitimacy of this thing is gone. and i think that that was very plain to see for the american people with horowitz' testimony. strzok made a conscious decision in the fall campaign to not pursue hillary's emails because he was trying to further this collusion narrative. steve: right. the ig did say there were five fbi agents who were super anti-trumpers and, in fact, he has referred them for investigation. all five worked on the hillary case. but, congressman, it's hard to understand how if somebody is so biased, and they are running the investigation, how that could not impact the outcome in this case whether or not to go after hillary clinton criminally. >> of course. i mean, look.
4:48 am
he is there h editing the statement that comey gave saying well, actually, we don't know if foreign actors hacked into the email when that was the fbi's view is that that had happened. he was trying to sanitize the statement to clear a path for her to win. and then obviously, how he handled the so-called russia stuff. he was really responsible for creating this narrative, which many of us believe has been a phoney narrative that carried on to donald trump's presidency. there was a lot of leaking, a lot of media hysteria. this guy, peter strzok, has done more damage to the institution of the fbi than probably any agent in modern times. he really helped alter the political dynamics in this country. donald trump has gotten a heck of a lot done. he has had to deal with this for over a year and a half. it's unfair. steve: you mentioned the leaks. mr. horowitz did say that he is still doing investigations in to leaks. into james comey. into russia as well. but, regarding peter strzok, his attorney has offered him up to come to congress and
4:49 am
testify what was going on. how do you think that's going to go? >> well, go ahead, make my day. i would love to have that i would note he did testify in front of the inspector general and the inspector general said he did not find strzok to be credible at all in a number of different instances. that his explanation just didn't wash. i mean, when he was asked about the insurance policy text, meeting in andrew mccabe's office the deputy director said i'm not sure. i don't remember that meeting. he played dumb on i was not credible in the eyes of the ig. i think if he were to come before the congress i think it would be nationally televised theater where this guy was probably tripping all over himself. i definitely welcome it. and i think that he should do that. i also think he should lose his job, steve. why is he still getting a paycheck from the taxpayers after all that he has done, all the damage that this guy has done with his bias? steve: a lot of people are asking the same question. congressman, thank you very much for joining us today from statuary hall on

molly hemingway, senior editor with the federalist, fox news contributor. molly you saw most of the testimony. five hours. seven people,0 minutes each. what do we now know by michael horowitz's comments to those questions? >> one of the interesting things when that ig report came out a lot of people wanted to spin it saying they didn't have a problem with bias in the fbi. in yesterday's testimony and in the day before in the senate the inspector general michael horowitz repeatedly talked about the problems posed by the brazen and extreme bias some of the key agents in the clinton email probe, which happened to be the same agents involved in the russia probe exhibited. while it might not have posed too much of a problem with the clinton email probe, while he couldn't determine whether their bias in favor of hillary clinton actually impacted their decisions, he was reticent to say that when it got to the russia probe. that is under investigation now. he specifically said bias was
5:17 am
problematic for the russia probe. that is interesting. >> if you read the 500 pages executive review, fbi agent two. we find out two names yesterday worth pursuing. kevin klein smith was attorney number two, sally moyer, agent number five. said horrible things about people that followed donald trump. that he is a dope. and used a "r" word to describe his mental capacity as well as his followers. if there was a script in a "law & order" episode i would say too deliberate. where is the subtlety? this is unbelievable. i just wonder how much else needs to be recovered? >> right. of course one of these people involved in this was praising hillary clinton and he was the person, he or she was the person going in to interview her about her mishandling of classified information. that is really problematic when you see people having that level
5:18 am
of bias but i was a little concerned we just didn't get these names first off. public service does not give you protection from being held accountable for what you're doing. i think people have a right to know who you are, where you currently are. we learned two of the three other people, other than peter strzok and lisa page were also involved in the russia probe. we don't know who they were. if they're still involved and what is being done within the fbi to make sure that bias doesn't further impact that investigation. brian: right. you have to wonder why peter strzok is still working there. lisa page is gone. baker is gone. comey is gone. mccabe is gone. others have left. the whole higher echelon running the fbi has been left on their own or been fired and one is on a criminal referral but peter strzok walked out but still getting paid. why is that? >> well, not just that, the last 10 months i think he has been working in hr, what i think they have told us. human resources seems like an odd place to send your number two in counterintelligence who
5:19 am
was caught having an affair with a colleague, has to violate so many fbi personnel policies, to be sent to a safe place in human resources. to get now what seems like a paid vacation is not holding him accountable for his missteps. brian: poly, i want believe, president referred to it, people are not covering this more. this is not conjecture and hyperbole. these are texts and facts. surprised there is not more coverage. >> all the top leadership has had to step down or been fired for this. this isn't an imaginary thing this is happening at our fbi and it seems like something that people left and right should care about, having accountability at our nation's top law enforcement agency. making sure we can trust them when it comes to political investigations after they made so many missteps for both the hillary clinton email probe and the trump russia probe. brian: you just wonder where it is going now because next week or the week after we get peter strzok there. next week we get the deputy attorney general out in front.

trunk of a car, or back of a tractor-trailer, hire a criminal organization to transport the child to the united states state but the u.s. government is the bad guy? we take pretty good care of these children in our custody. that is not talked about who the children really are. brian: to have round numbers, if i believe the homeland security secretary and i do, over 12,000 come here recently. out of the 12,000, only 2,000 have come, been separated. 2300 and some separated from their families. do you that process with the 2300, would you label that humane? >> i would say that we care for these people very well. look, i have said 100 times, done a lot of interviews, separating families is unfortunate and sad but we have to enforce the law. american families, this is something you don't hear either, american families get separated everyone when someone is prosecuted, arrested, criminally charged with a crime. that is the way the system works. these parents, they don't have

5:42 am
brian: could the president do this as executive order, keep families together, build more facilities get them in front of a judge or immediately turn them around the minute she show up? >> the president's hands are tied. there is legislation that limit how long we can detain children. congress can really fix it. congress is placing the blame. i've been doing this 34 years. immigration has been a problem 34 years. rather than going down to the dog and pony shows on the southwest border, rather than vilifying the men and women of i.c.e., rather than call us nazis and racists sit down and fix it. detain the families. i want them to have the hearings. i want them to see a judge, when we release them, they don't show up in court. if they want to make a claim, talk to a judge. when that decision is made, most are frivolous claims they need to go home. we did that fy-14 started surge. we held them long enough to see the judge. most lost the cases. got on a plane, went home.
