precedence. they are not rules. basically what the parties in power decided to do at the time. steve: right. judge: but, what mitch mcconnell did thought holding a hearing, talking about this before on judge garland, he has, whoever the majority leader, has that absolute power not to hold the hearing. he also has the absolute power to hold the hearing, which, of course, he said yesterday in defiance of chuck schumer that he will do. i have to tell you that i believe the issue will be abortion. because justice kennedy even though he is a daily mass attending, daily roman catholic was pro--is pro-choice. and everybody on that list, griff just put the screen up, 25. every single person on that list is pro-life. the democrats will see -- this is the potential demise of rofd.

single-handedly saved roe v. wade in a case called casey vs. planned parenthood which they and justice david souter wrote a very unique and bizarre opinion called the joint opinion. it wasn't signed by any of the three of them. they wrote it in justice o'connor's living room. a lot of crazy antidotal stories about it. it saved abortion. scalia and company thought they the votes to overturn roe v. wade. ainsley: the president says he is definitely picking someone from that list of 25. judge: darn it. ainsley: i actually thought that yesterday. i looked to see if your name was up there. what can you tell us? judge: judge hardiman is a very, very good friend, ally and protege of the president's sister. they sat on the united states court of appeals for the third circuit where justice alito sat when he was on the bench. steve: wasn't he the runner-up last time? >> judge caven bret

nominee, whenever he or she is confirmed? the chief justice who has great relationships even some ideological alliances. he saved obamacare. he, as you know i would have, joined with the four liberals and requiring police to get search warrants before they can go into cell phones. but, let me tell you, we have never had in the modern era a chief justice who is the swing vote that will make him the most powerful chief justice since earl warren in the eisenhower years. brian: judge, how old is ginsburg. judge: 84. brian: how old is briar. >> 82. if president trump gets another four years. >> he have five nominees, which is the most that any president in the modern era. when he and i spoke which this is a while ago now. who got the most influence on the court. george washington who appointed the entire first court. nixon and fdr? why? they each appoint five. fdr had far more because he was more concerned with the
3:11 am
ideological purity of the people he appointed. i said to him, mr. president, you might have five. just the way biology and time effects history. ainsley: if they wanted to overturn roe v. wade, i doubt that would happen, right? if they wanted to, how would they bring that back and do it again? >> i don't know that the chief justice, catholic though he is, pro-life though he is, will want to do this. he is of the view that -- public opinion, even elections. elections are important and make a difference. that's why donald trump is there. they have consequences. ainsley: a lot of christians voted for him for this reason. judge: correct. chief justice of the view when law so long people have planned their lives on it that a single election shouldn't change it but to go to your question, it f. it is invalidated. that would leave it up to the states. abortion, which is lawful up to the moment of birth in new jersey, regrettably will stay the way it is in new jersey. unlawful in new york and

have to talk about dave bureaucrat. this economics professor beat eric cantor. let's talk to dave bureaucrat now and find out how did it and does it remind you of his race. do you see similarities between the twoup sets? >> yeah. there were several. she had good energy. she had her base with her. she ran and pledged to run against the swamp. i'm not going to take money she is the underdog. people like the underdog. all of that is similar. she said i'm not going to take d.c. money. she a socialist. she wants the swamp to take over every component of your life. that's obviously the difference with us. i don't think she stands in the jfk wing of the democrat party. and so when i ran, i ran on the republican platform american people were sick of us making promises and not coming through on them. the left are out of the box. >> they are going way off, bernie, socialist progressive, identity politics. yelling at people. i don't think people want to

steve: thanks, ainsley. a fox news alert. justice kennedy's decision below a blow to labor. public employees cannot be forced to pay union labor fees if they don't want to. a major victory for our next guest. and illinois state employee who says being forced to hand over a weekly portion of his paycheck is a violation of his constitutional rights. joining us right now is the plaintiffs in that case mark janice along with his attorney jacob huber they are joining -- it looks like they are at the lincoln memorial where actually they are in our bureau where actually there is some drilling going on. gentlemen, thank you for joining us today. >> good morning. >> good morning. steve: mark, let's start with you why did you want to sue. >> there were so many aspects of the union that i just did not agree with when it came to their politics and also when it came to their policy and some of the collective bargaining efforts that they were trying to accomplish. steve: are you antiunion? >> no, absolutely not.
3:26 am
if people want to voluntarily join a union and they want to voluntarily pay the dues, i think it's good for that individual and that union, why should i, as a condition of employment be forced to pay a fee in order to just work in a public sector area? steve: yeah, mark, that's the way they have been doing it for decades. >> it doesn't nestle mean it's right. steve: you are right about that. jacob, what about this particular case do you think appealed to the supreme court with the 5-4 verdict that they would say, you know what? we shouldn't have to force people to do something they don't want to do? >> well, they started recognizing in a couple of other decisions over the past decade that this is a strange thing where this one kind of group can force people to give it money for political advocacy. there is no other group really except the government that can force people to give it money like that. this was a strange situation that's contrary to first amendment values and the
3:27 am
court signaled in years past that it was ready to correct that and that it finally took that step yesterday. steve: mark, this wasn't a political decision for you. it's really about your first amendment rights, right? >> oh, absolutely. you know, the first amendment is a contract with the people of the united states. and it says that i have the right of freedom of association. and, unfortunately, with these agency fees and the way it was set up in illinois and also many other states, there is 22 across the country, you know, we don't have that right. we are forced into this whether we want to be or not. nobody asks. the fee just started coming out of my paycheck and nobody said anything about it other than boom, it's there. steve: sure. one of the things is for a lot of the union members the money goes from their paycheck into the covers of thcoffers ofthe union and often, mark, they support candidates it's money out of your pocket you don't particularly line up behind
3:28 am
them. >> well, that's correct. but, also, we did try to get an accounting and we tried to get some information, but, you know, it was so vague and so nebulous and this it was hard to understanding where my money was actually going. and that's one of the problems i had. if there was a good accounting of it, you know, it may have been a little bit better. but it just never occurred. steve: sure. jacob, final question. they are suggesting that perhaps some teacher's unions could lose up to a third of their members and a third of their money as well. going forward, what's the immediate impact going to be for union members across the country? >> it really depends on how workers choose to exercise their freedom. i think in some places workers will probably like their union and lots of them will join and the unions won't lose much money. but many maybe in other places where unions are taken the workers money for granted and haven't been very supportive. people will opt out a lot. we will see it depends on the choices people make now that they are free to make them. steve: mark, it's been a
3:29 am
long fight. worth it. >> yes, definitely. there is approximately 5 million of us in 22 states across the country that this is going to effect. and it's just the fact that we want the choice to say yes as much as the choice to say no. and just kind of trying to make a little more even and understandable that we do have a choice for workers. this is for workers. and that's the bottom line here. and i also want to say that it's also only the public sector. this does not effect the private unions at all. strictly public sector unions. steve: as you did mention, it does impact 5 million coast to coast. mark janus and jacob huber, we thank you for joining the d.c. bureau. where suddenly it's quiet. perhaps somebody is on coffee break: disgraced fbi agent peter strzok testified behind closed doors yesterday for 11 hours. congress says they barely got any answers. some republicans did. so next time he talks, it

3:34 am
this mean now and do you understand why so many democrats seem to be anxiety-riddled. >> i do. the timing could not be better for the white house. quite frankly, without the filibuster rule the democrats are at risk of being in a position of a pedestrian watching this conversation unfold it will be a very close vote likely. unless there are defection from republican senators. brian: what do you mean? >> well, many people thought, i'm talking about for the democrats to block this nomination. it only take as slightly more conservative nominee to produce cascading effects across about six areas of law the kennedy legacy is immense. but it's also quite vulnerable. it hangs by a single vote, his own. so most of his most famous cases are 5-4 decisions.
3:35 am
it does not take. of a move to the right to undo many of those cases if the nominee feels that they are not supportable. i think what you are going to see is a very determined democratic opposition to a conservative nominee. i'm not too sure that will be successful. the one thing about this president that you have to give him is that he has fulfilled his promises, more than any president in my lifetime. can you disagree with his promises. brian: nothing is new. he said it. >> yeah. this was the biggest promise of all. he promised to move that court to the right and we all understood he was talking about kennedy's seat. ainsley: you talked about the 5-4 decision. one of those was against the unions charging fair share fees that steve was talking about for the last guest. travel ban. he also ruled that banning same sex marriage was unconstitutional. media up in arms about abortion. will abortion become illegal? we had judge napolitano
3:36 am
saying no it won't happen but then it will just be up to states, every state would be able to decide. so it wouldn't be a federal decision. what are some of the big issues that are facing the supreme court in the next year or so? >> one of the most important things to keep in mind about cases like roe v. wade, is even though a more stable, conservative majority might emerge, people like john roberts are institutionalists. they tend not to want to see sweeping changes in cases like that. what you are more likely to see is roe v. wade undermined. it can effectively be negated by a thousand paper cuts along the edges. i have no question at all that pro-life advocacy groups are preparing challenges as we speak to move into the pipeline to chip away at the edges. he was also the fifth vote on things like detainee rights. he was the fifth vote on death penalty cases.
3:37 am
all of those are likely to be moved aggressively by the respective advocacy groups. that single vote is going to be gone. and all of those cases are now sort of a jump ball for the new majority. steve: and suddenly people in both political parties are energized to do something about it. we got to ask you though, jonathan, about the big closed door meeting hearing yesterday up on capitol hill. peter strzok, half of the love birds from the fbi. he appeared, apparently didn't get immunity. he testified for 11 hours in two different sessions. and, you know, the lawmakers have been tight-lipped so far about what he said. but, congressman bob goodlatte of virginia had something to say that got us thinking this morning and would he wanted to ask you about it. listen to this. >> he has answered many questions regarding the hateful nature of many, many, many texts that he
3:38 am
exchanged with lisa page. and in doing so, his answers to his explanation for those questions about that hateful attitude are not believable. steve: jonathan, here's the thing. apparently in the room with mr. strzok was an fbi lawyer. and the fbi lawyer repeatedly, when congressman would ask questions would say he doesn't have to answer that. he is not going to answer that one right there. why would the fbi or department of justice send an fbi lawyer in there to stop the fbi guy from saying what he wants to say? >> well, that's a very good question. the fbi has thought been particularly cooperative on a number of respects. first of all, they did redact a lot of information that was not deafd. that appears to have been removed solely to prevent the embarrassment of contradiction. and, time and time again. we have seen them act in this fashion to not necessarily obstruct but certainly not to make things
3:39 am
easy for these committees. in many ways the committee is in the same position as the ig. the ig said that he can't determine or he can't say conclusively that decisions were made out of political bias because nobody said that. nobody confessed to them. there was no email saying let's derail this investigation. but, that accident mean there isn't a political bias. so no one is surprised that strzok went in and said look, i don't like the guy. i didn't want him to be president. but it didn't effect my judgment. it's going to be left to the rest of to us determine how credible it is. brian: the thing that stands out he says i was uni was uneequivocal. >> it was not me, i want to say on the record. brian: remove turley from the list. >> i'm the last unindicted lawyer in washington. i want to say it that way.

4:04 am
ainsley: three now in their 80's? so i know the evangelicals were going to the polls to vote. this was one of the main reasons that they voted for president trump because he had the power to nominate these justices that were going to be conservative. brian: also add to that when referenced jeffers was on last night with shannon, he said, listen, we know about the president's personal behavior and all those things. we wanted him to do certain things and that's why we support him. he has done everything. this is the main reason we supported him. mr. president, don't stop now when it comes to picking a justice. ainsley: as far as the picking process, he has a list of 25 people. he said he is going to decide soon. it's going to be pretty immediate. someone on that list he said is definitely going to be selected. mitch mcconnell said they will vote this fall in the senate. we had judge napolitano on earlier this morning breaking down the process the president will use to decide who he is going to pick. listen.

>> he has a team of people inside the white house and outside of the white house. combing through everything these people have said not only in their judicial opinions but in their public speeches. that will help him narrow it to three or four. the president will personally interview the three or four alone. one-on-one. and from that choose the person. steve: okay. so of the list. on that list of 25, which was assembled by leonard leo, a member of the federalist society, who is currently absent from that he has taken a leave of absence to work with the president, there is a short list that has been circulated. we have gotten. so names. thomas hardiman of pennsylvania he was pretty much the runner-up last time. so he would be a choice of the president. and. ainsley: and then we have breath cavanaugh of maryland, and amy kony ba barrett.

justices. >> it's time for democrats to throw down. and what i mean by that is we have been playing by the rule book and donald trump and republicans have been playing by street rules. we need to play by street rules. >> don't allow a vote on this. don't have a hearing. don't have a meeting. don't let anything go forward. don't play ball with this decision. ainsley: recorded over his child's christmas in 1988. that was worth it. brian: bush was in office. steve: you get the idea people on the left are really fired up. then again can you blame chuck schumer for filibustering neil gorsuch. he wasn't really going to tilt the balance the ideological balances that next one okay that's firing up the base on the left. meanwhile, on the right, the president of the united states went to fargo last night to fire up his base and right now he has got a new target. and her name is maxine waters. >> vote for any democrat in november is a vote for
4:09 am
schumer, pelosi, and maxine. please keep maxine waters on the air as your face and your mouthpiece for the democrat party. please. i mean, she practically was telling people the other day to assault -- can you imagine if i said the things she said? can you imagine, seriously if i said that or somebody else said that? horrible what she said. brian: show got into it with jeb hensarling the congressman from texas. they went back on it it's the president's fault he said this when he was a candidate. the bottom line is i love what chris coons has said i like what schumer has said. we are have got to knock this off. i love the new york restaurant that put up a sign. sarah huckabee sanders you are welcome in my restaurant. that's got to be the new attitude. hopefully the worst was last week. steve: hope.

4:17 am
i do respect the fact that he stood behind federalism and separation of powers. ledge just liberty and so many other things that is posh. i have been watching the supreme court since i was 10 years old. i start wanted at that age watching supreme court arguments just for fun going with my dad to the court. so i'm honored even to be considered for something like this. ultimately this is the president's choice. and i'm sure he will make the right decision. steve: the reason you went with your dad to the supreme court, he was the solicitor general for the united states, and he argued 59 cases before the supreme court. so just that kind of family legacy would be unbelievable. ultimately though, i would imagine, senator, it does come down to how your relationship is with the guy who would nominate you. how are things with the president? >> i have a good relationship with the president. you know, he and i don't see eye to eye on every issue. but, on the whole, i have supported his efforts to restore federalism, to restore separation of powers. these are different ways of saying to drain the swamp.
4:18 am
and i think he and i see eye to eye on most things when it comes to the supreme court of the united states. so, again, i have got confidence that he can make the right decision, especially given that he is going to be focusing on this list. he chooses from that list. i think the senate will confirm someone from that list. brian: senator, i will give you a scenario because we are in the world of everything is possible and everything is unprecedented. you get the call, hey, you are going to be the nominee. being there is such a slim margin in the astronaut, depending on john mccain especially because of his condition, what happens to your vote if you are up for the nomination? you need your vote to win. do you vote for yourself? are you allowed to do that? >> yeah. my understanding is that's what the senate rules allow and that you are still a senator until you are no longer a senator. you are still a senator at the moment that you are being considered for something like that. brian: wow. so you would go by the power invested in me i vote for me. >> that's my understanding. steve: what about if the president picked your brother and not you, how awkward is that going to be around the table on
4:19 am
thanksgiving? >> oh, it would be fantastic. first of all, my brother is a terrific jurist. is he a texa text list. after justice gorsuch and justice scalia. i would really enjoy the opportunity to grill him as a member of the senate judiciary committee. steve: when you were 7 years old i remember. brian: that's so interesting the way you describe your brother. i describe my brother as a yankee fan. [laughter] brian: a little bit different. senator, i have got to ask you in the big picture right now, there is a lot of people out there moderate, independent, or democrat who would say goodbye same sex marriage and goodbye roe v. wade. you are a legal scholar. should they be worried. >> well, look, all of those issues involve cases that have been decided previously by the supreme court. it's one thing for them to assume that a republican appointee might come at those issues from a different world view as a matter of first impression.
4:20 am
they have to take into account the doctrine of stare decisis which is a doctrine which generally puts the supreme court on ath path following precedent. so, they can't know for sure how any one of those issues is going to turn out and whether any one of those cases might be overturned. steve: all right. ainsley: well, for now senator lee, we will call you senator for now. thank you so much for joining us. we wish you all the best. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. steve: and best to your brother. brian: by history books all excellent by the way. ainsley: the left has been targeting women on the trump administration. now they are going after any woman who supports the president including our next guest who says she is getting death threats. steve: plus, coming up, we have newt gingrich, former speaker of the house, we will talk to him about the news of the day. stick around, you are watching "fox & friends" ♪ stand my ground ♪ i won't back down ♪ i won't back down ♪ hey, baby

and when my daughter heard this, i mean, it really upset her. ainsley: it's very scary. because it's trying to silence you because they don't agree with you and they are trying to take it to another level to scare you enough so you don't go on shows and you don't talk about why you support this president. now, april ryan, you said, was on the panel with you. she is a cnn contributor. she took to twitter and she wrote you are the hater. look in the mirror. folks don't forget this stuff. it is catching up to you. isn't it? liar. what did you think about that? >> it's grateful. cnn corinther. she is part of the white house press corps. i would suspect more decorum and tack from somebody who is part of the press corps. you have a journalist or so-called journalist going after an activist. i would expect better from her. i will say this. i have been doing, you know, media for the past nine or ten years now. it's always been, ainsley,
4:28 am
that i can go on air and have spirited debates with anybody from the other side of the aisle and will walk off the set and hug each other or talk about our families. we have even gone to dinner before. but, this, and the personal attacks were not there it was about policy. ainsley: what did you say that made them so mad? >> i don't know. i mean, it's all about this immigration thing. and i basically believe that -- i mean, we are a nation of immigrants, yes. we are also a nation of laws. and when american citizens have to follow the law, immigrants should follow the laws, too. whether you are illegal or legal. i mean, we are a nation of laws bottom line. and so -- but it's this immigration debate, it's gotten way out of control. and now you have this day of unrest that the women's march is calling for. i mean, look, there are women all across this country, ainsley that support this president and what is happening is they are being silenced because the intimidation and fear tactics from the left. it's really like modern day
4:29 am
mean girls. and what's happening is there is this war going on between women. let me tell you something, i am not going to back down for supporting my president. and, yes, they are trying to silence me and they want cnn or msnbc, these other networks to say, you know, we couldn't get somebody to come on to defend the president or his policies. and i will never back down. i will continue to fight strong because we are going to make america great again. ainsley: there are a lot of people support your beliefs and we are entitled to have different opinions we don't need to be angry about it i'm reading some of the text messages that you got and too fowl to even read on tv. i'm sorry that you are getting all this backlash. >> ainsley, they need a little more god and a little less politics, i believe. ainsley: amen, sister. yes. have a great day, amy, thank you. >> you too. ainsley: democrats want to block a vote on president trump's supreme court nominee before the mid terms because republicans blocked obama's pick. isn't that time around a little different? newt gingrich is here to

4:34 am
he had two failed nominations. so then he decided i'm going to go with a friend, a guy i know. when he was governor of the state of california. they were friends. steve: all right. so that was at the beginning. now, since he has announced his retirement he is at the end of his career. let's talk to newt gingrich, a fox news contributor, a former speaker of the house, ran for president. got a great book called "trump's america." he joins us live. newt, you know, with the next nomination, president trump could be on the verge of nominating somebody conservative give the supreme court the conservative edge that republicans have dreamed of for a lifetime in is a huge moment for the president and for the country. certainly he is going to name somebody who is conserving. i think he has a list already out of the 25 names is he looking at pick gorsuch, gorsuch was on the list and he kept his word from the campaign. is he probably going to pick somebody younger because he
4:35 am
has a very keen sense that getting people who can serve 20 or 30 or 40 years really shapes for a generation what happens he has been doing that appeals court judges and district judges. he is already on the edge of making a remarkable impact. this will certainly strengthen that and i think some time this fall we will have a solidly conservative supreme court justice approved and on the bench. brian: before justice kennedy could even go to his beach house senate minority leader chuck schumer quickly went to the microphone and said wait a second, this is an election year. you cannot nominate someone during an election year. listen. >> our republican colleagues in the senate should follow the rule they set in 2016 not to consider a supreme court justice in an election year. millions of people are just months away from determining the senators who should vote to confirm or reject the president's nominee. and their voices deserve to be heard now at leader
4:36 am
mcconnell thought they deserves to be heard then. anything but that would be the absolute height of hypocrisy. that's not a hard fast rule. that's a biden recommendation, a biden rule. we have elections every two years. this is a midterm not a presidential election. >> yeah. look, the so-called biden rule was about a presidential election year not an off year election. furthermore the republicans are going to pick up seats in the senate, so the democrats, if anything are going to be weaker after the election in the senate not stronger. it's just humor being silly. he knows and even the "the washington post" and "new york times" have reported that all of that conversation was about a presidential election year. it was not about an off year u and the truth is, mcconnell is going to ignore him. mcconnell is going to move in this fall. and they are going to approve somebody, probably before thanksgiving. brian: meanwhile, it was so
4:37 am
stupid for them to push last time and force mitch mcconnell to go for a simple majority. if they said and voted for the 60 for gorsuch, then they would have really had a little bit more power than they do right now. with a simple majority and the majority belonging to republicans. they can't stop it. you would think if they get a nominee that all republicans can agree on. right? >> that's right. i mean, and, of course, remember, if they picked somebody who has solid credentials, if you are running for re-election in north dakota or west virginia or indiana, you are under enormous pressure as a democrat. steve: good point. >> in states where trump got huge majorities. three democrats voted last time for gorsuch and i think very likelihood two or three democrats will vote this time. ainsley: you are the former speaker why just the senate. >> the constitution gives the power to advise and
4:38 am
consent to the senate. that's the way it's always been. as a house member i may have my feelings about that. but i respect the constitution and that's one of the great challenges the senate has is whether it's ambassadors or secretaries of state or judges they have a huge personnel role to play that takes up a great deal of their time. steve: indeed. it is, of course, political. let's talk about this. another political hot potato up on capitol hill yesterday behind closed doors, peter strzok, half of the fbi love birds testified or actually it was just kind of an interview for 11 hours before the house oversight and house judiciary committee. and the president tweeted this out just about 20 minutes ago, newt. lover fbi agent peter strzok was given poor marks on yesterday's fbi testimony. and according to reports refused to answer many questions there was no collusion and the witch-hunt, headed by 13 angry democrats and others who are totally conflicted, is rigged. i talked to one of the
4:39 am
people who was in the room and didn't give me any specific testimony but said that he had an aunt, when -- whe lawyer allowed him to answer thing he had answer for everything and nothing was criminal. which is how you would imagine. >> not a criminal. i'm sure his lawyers would have told him to take the fifth amendment and not self-incriminate. you know, it doesn't have to be criminal to be totally prejudice. the charge here would not be that strzok is making up stuff. the charge will be, for example, in the case of secretary clinton that they were deliberately avoiding discovering anything. when they gave immunity to the guy who had taken a hammer to destroy the cell phones and then taken bleach bit in order to destroy the hard drive of the computers. and they gave that guy full immunity, nobody on the
4:40 am
trump team has been offered that kind of deal. so you would have to say was it terrible judgment? was it total prejudice? it was incompetence? clearly there is something really sick about how the fbi approached these two cases. brian: just keep in mind for those following this case close, they did believe him when he said that he did not have anything to do with the carter page fisa application which means somebody else did. mark meadows was asked, was in that room what he thought about the bias and what could have come out behind close the doors. here's what he said. >> i don't know how you read the text. i don't know how any reasonable person reads the text and would suggest that there was no bias are. there is new information that was not included in the ig's report. none of my concerns about political bias have been alleviated based on what i have heard so far. brian: he says a lot of his explanation just were not believable. will we ever get the transcript and what does that do when he finally goes public? what does the closed door session mean? >> you know, i don't understand exactly why there was a closed door session.
4:41 am
the public has the right to know all of this. publish the transcript. they frankly ought to bring him back under oath and have in a formal hearing. i'm not trying to second guess them. brian: they say they will. >> the ultimate reality is the american people deserve to know whether or not the justice department and the fbi have been corrupted. and the american people, not just the congress, deserve to know who was doing these things and what they were doing. nothing i have seen so far would lead me to any belief, except that they were remarkably prejudiced and that they were dedicated to hillary clinton winning and they were dedicated to stopping trump if they could. ainsley: there weren't that many people that were on this investigation team. he was one of, i think, 20. and there has already been proof that five or six of them had this bias as well. thank you so much for joining us, mr. speaker. >> good to be with you. brian: trump's america is a best seller. not a surprise. go pick it up. ainsley: all of them are.
4:42 am
congratulations. steve: 18 minutes now before the top of the hour. jillian joins us with news from the former speaker. jillian: that's right. nancy pelosi lashing out after a reporter suggests her party make changes after a historic primary win. >> the democratic party is increasingly younger, more female, more diverse, more progressive. should out democratic house leadership look that way? >> well, i'm female, i'm progressive. what's your problem? they made a choice in one district. so let's not get yourself carried away. ainsley: the reporter and pelosi referring to 28-year-old alexandria cassio cortez. she beat 10 term joe crowley in a new york primary. business owner behind bars accused of getting a police officer murdered. mohammed muhammad was angry at a cop for writing him parking tickets so he hired a hit man to throw acid in his face. it turns out that person was actually an undercover cop. >> he ended up deciding no,

that's not enough. i don't want to just maim this officer. i don't want to just injure this officer. i want him killed because that's the only way that this will go away. jillian: mohammed agreed to pay $2,000 to have the officer killed. police even staged the death and provided photos of proof. faces life in prison from. good boy to hometown rory. dog rewarded for this fearless. saved his best smoky from drowning out of the water in arizona. the fire department now recognizing the pup rewarding him with a bag of business cuts. great to see when people save lives but dogs can save lives too. he embody what is we are trying to teach right now. >> deserves every reward and biscuit. ainsley: he got a bag of treats. steve: thank you very much. coming up, a fox news alert. we now know where the summit

4:48 am
lot of issues of mutual interests for us. certainly counter terrorism, counter proliferation. working together on organized crime. but, maybe the key issue for us in terms of our strategy, our national security strategy is arms control. the stark treaty expires in february 2021 and we need to work, i think, with the russians to determine whether there is mutual interests in extending it. there are other issues like north korea and syria which also figure prominently and the back drop to all of this is russia's ongoing ongoing both human espionage and cyber directed against our country. steve: in particular, daniel, directed at our election. if you are president trump and you have been talking for the last year and a half. there was no collusion. come on, there was no collusion i didn't work with the russians. sitting across the table from the president the strong man from russia. i would imagine he would like to extract some sort of an answer regarding that at
4:49 am
the table. >> yeah. he won't get one unfortunately. steve: he will try. >> he will try. and he will make some -- i'm sure he will have strong words. russian meddling in our election an act of war. and i don't disagree with him in the least. essentially what the russians understand is hard deterrence. sometimes have you got to rap them on the knuckles to get the message across to them. and, in this case for us, it might mean counter operations in the cyber sphere or other things. the president kicked out 60 russian officials. closed russian facilities. the russian, i think, understand that borders are idol if you don't take action the president has done both. steve referred to as the evil empire. he meant it but you still have to have ongoing diplomatic relations to try to get stuff done. >> that's right. and helsinki has been at the center of that. it was the site of the helsinki accord signed in 1975 and president bush met with secretary gorbachev in
4:50 am
1990. so, it's an excellent location. president trump is going to be busy that week with a nato summit and a meeting in the u.k. beforehand. steve: all right. very good. daniel hoffman, used to be posted to moscow. daniel, thank you for joining us from the bureau. >> thank you. steve: 10 minutes before the top of the hour the rhetoric on the political left keeps getting more and more dangerous. >> from that cabinet in a restaurant, you get out and you create a crowd. >> we must abolish ice. this is the legislation that we need. steve: dana loesch here to respond to those two sound bites coming up next. plus, abby huntsman is having breakfast with friends in orlando. good morning, abby. >> good morning, steve. i am surrounded by a bunch of wrestlers this morning. these two were coached by this guy at clemson university. quickly, your advice for these two for their first time on tv coming up after the break. >> i feed them well. tell them to shake hands at the beginning of the match

5:02 am
president published several times to which he personally added in the last three or four months. justice kennedy was the perfect gentlemanly thing to do because that is to tell the president first, tell him personally and do it on the last day of the term giving the president in the senate the maximum time available. if he had done this in the middle of the summer or september it wouldn't have given some enough time to choose the nominee. is doing him a favor and doing it with grace and poise. we start with that list, everyone on the list is having their backgrounds and everything they have written as a judge, not all of them are a judge, sen. lee -- >> how many would democrats agree would be a great choice? most of already been confirmed.
5:03 am
judge napolitano: they are all excellent jurors but would democrats agree? i don't think democrats would accept anybody on that list for the one issue which is abortion. just because that person is pro-life doesn't mean they will have the opportunity to vote to repeal roe versus wade because i case has got to get there and come in such a manner they could vote, doesn't mean there are 5 votes to repeal it because of this legacy the chief justice has about not wanting to change rules and procedures people have relied on. >> so many democrats were saying they are word abortion will become illegal if a pro-lifer gets the spot that they would overturn it and in 2015 justice kennedy ruled banning same-sex
5:04 am
marriage was unconstitutional. judge napolitano: justice kennedy was a conservative republican but the hero to the lgbt? community, he wrote a member of pro-gay rights that invalidated state laws that made consenting sex among same-sex partners illegal, he wrote the opinion that made gay marriage lawful everywhere in the united states but on abortion, great question. if roe versus wade were to go away tomorrow the issue would be resolved by the states, there would be 50 state abortion laws. some states like new york and new jersey because we know the attitude of the public officials in those states would make abortion lawful and other states like pennsylvania would make abortion unlawful and you would have to go to the state where it is lawful. i'm a fierce opponent of abortion but recognize there is a strong movement in the country to have it lawful in some places and it would be lawful in those
5:05 am
places. >> 70% voted with conservatives and the swing vote. judge napolitano: swing vote is the most powerful member of the court, justice o'connor had it before justice kennedy. after justice kennedy the chief justice. >> no one says i'm the swing vote. it just happens. judge napolitano: someone says i'm the swing vote get out of here, go back to law school. >> mike lee, the next anthony kennedy, we asked -- >> someone watching the supreme court since i was 10 years old i'm honored even to be considered for something like this and ultimately the pres.'s choice and i'm sure he will make the right decision. he and i don't ci to on every issue but on the whole i supported his efforts to restore federalism, separation of powers. we ci to eye on most things when it comes to the united states supreme court. judge napolitano: i believe he
5:06 am
is a serious contender. judicial humility, not personal humility, judicial humility, recognition it is the job of the president and congress to set public policy and not the judiciary, the judiciary is third in the constitution after congress and the president for a reason. sen. lee personifies that. >> sounds like every network has a different short list of 5 or 6 people, the president was talking about how he would like somebody on the bench who could be there 30 or 40 years and the agent of some on the short list, amy barrett of arizona is 46 years old, and kentucky, 49 years old. >> joan larson of michigan is 49. raymond from michigan is 51 years old.

>> and thomas is 18 -- every one of them, roman catholic and poor life, democrats will go berserk and that will be an issue for sen. murkowski, republican of alaska, sen. collins, republican of maine but may bring in joe mention and a few others. >> there is an online site called, they have brent cavanaugh as the front runner of 34% and thomas hardiman who was the runner-up last time, 60%. judge napolitano: tell the president i am 26. judge napolitano: he would serve 50 years. >> he could serve 60 years. >> judge janine getting this. >> the nominee will come from

his list of 25. >> the headline for a while about public unions, a 5-4 decision and the janice decision went to management and management cannot force you to pay union dues and you are not forced to join the union and don't have to opt out. if you read the illinois statute, your presumed a member of the union, you got to do this and this, you have to be a lawyer to understand this. forget about it. they went you in the union, you don't do that you are not in and they can take it from you. freedom to associate guarantees the first amendment and freedom not to associate. >> he says i'm not going to be in the union. judge napolitano: the state of
5:09 am
illinois allowed the union to take his dues from him. and we are not talking private unions but people who are employed. judge napolitano: public-sector unions. >> including teachers unions. one third of members of the teachers unions, a lot less money. judge napolitano: the reason democrats are upset about this decision is it waters down the political influence of unions because membership will shrink. if you are forced to join you will join but if they have to offer you something to induce you to join. >> this became a question of first amendment rights because i don't want to do it. atlantic -- alayna kagan had a dissenting opinion, the majority overthrows the decision, his

>> fox news alert, donald trump eyeing candidates to replace justice kennedy, his second supreme court nominee in two years. >> next guest predicting this will move the supreme court further to the right. >> harvard law prof. alan dershowitz. give us a little historical perspective. everyone is talking about how this next name could tilt the courts to conservatives. >> know what has seen in decades. is it written anywhere that you have got to have a balanced between progressives and liberals and conservatives on any court? >> know, of course not. the framers of the constitution
5:18 am
intended the supreme court to be an elitist check and balance on the excesses of democracy as represented by the popular branches of government, the house of representatives, sen. the president. the key to the future or two ancient latin words, let bold past decisions stands, the two kind of conservatives, conservatives who really respect past precedent and don't want to overrule them and conservatives who say i don't take note to past precedents but enough to my interpretation of the constitution and it was wrong 30 years ago or 50 years ago is wrong today and the key question is whether the president is looking for a freewheeling conservative or one who represents adherence to the past. these are wonderful things, everyone loves when it helps them and everyone hates it when it doesn't. in order to get gay-rights we
5:19 am
had to overrule a prior decision against gay-rights. to get desegregated schools we had to overturn plessy versus ferguson. and overrule the detention of 110,000 japanese americans, liberals applauded those decisions but if roe versus wade were overruled liberals would be appalled by that decision. >> investigation into russian meddling and the hillary clinton emails, peter shinzo abe stand behind closed doors with the house committee and we understand some of his explanations were implausible, others he would continually refer to his lawyer, why would he go behind closed doors, not a community and answer questions? >> what he wants to do behind closed doors, he can't explain in a reasonable way, why he was
5:20 am
going to stop the election, it sounds like interference by the fbi, he can't explain that and when you try to assess the credibility of someone in the american public has the right to assess his credibility you have to see him, see his facial expressions, how many times he turns to his lawyer, whether it looks like he's making up a story to satisfy the american public. we have a right to see him, this hearing should be open. if it is anything but national security put that behind closed doors but explaining what he meant by an insurance policy to prevent the election of a president is something the public has a right to. i tried to stop the election of donald trump i voting against him and contributing to hillary clinton, that is legitimate, that is the american way but the head of an investigation can't be trying to stop the election of a president. >> thank you so much.
5:21 am

5:26 am
is this the message they want for the midterms? >> apparently because they lack any substantive policy proposals so they have to default to this. this is what is sad about the state of political discourse and what gets me is how the media narrative is this is brand-new because it is trump's america. we can go back to the 60s, to bill ayres and the gentleman, the guy who launched the former pres.'s career in his living room. we can talk about occupy, ferguson, baltimore, if we want a discussion on civility but incivility is not the president being the first republican of this high office to respond to it and that is what has happened with donald trump. for so long, more decades than any of us on the show have been
5:27 am
alive we have had our characters impugned, reputations assassinated by individuals on the far left who have no better way to respond to policy disputes than violence, incendiary rhetoric and everything we see with democrats. they realize they are losing midterms, that the wave we hear about isn't a blue wave over republicans but a blue wave in the democratic party, the incendiary rhetoric of the far socialist left, the bernie breauxs, the individual you just showed, the 28-year-old who won the primary who are the ones taking on the democrat party. there message is crumbs, let's abolish ice, target donald trump junior's kids, steve scalise and everyone else if we disagree on policy. and responding to that with rhetoric, and let's look at what
5:28 am
they have done. >> essentially a community organizer for bernie sanders, pulling the party to the left and there is a picture, she set off an earthquake in new york city. and talking about nothing has really changed. >> the newcomer is riding bernie sanders's awakened the number of candidates who are socialist around the country who are starting to gain ground in the democrat party and for so long people like nancy pelosi and chuck schumer really enjoyed and benefited from the rhetoric of these far left individuals, those were the people who would whip up emotions when there wasn't anything real they could offer in terms of policy when trump and republicans were talking jobs and traded healthcare these individuals telling you what bathrooms to
5:29 am
use and screaming about russia and everything else in of which has come to fruition and chuck schumer and nancy pelosi enjoyed that whipping of emotions to get people to vote but now it has gotten away from them. checks you had to walk maxine waters back, lost control of their party, there is chaos in the democratic party, the media doesn't talk about it because they are trying to drive a wedge between voters and the administration. >> i read the background, very impressive. >> from what i read and heard it scares me that socialism is gaining ground in the country. politics aside, it doesn't work but thanks. >> bernie sanders said with a believe is becoming mainstream. >> free college, free money,

5:41 am
the digital divide is splitting this country. we have parents who are trying to get their kids off of too much social media and computers, and then we have parents who would only hope their children have access. middle school is a really key transition point, right. the stakes start changing. students begin to really start thinking about their futures. what i like about verizon's approach is that it's not limited to just giving kids new tools, it's really about empowering educators to teach in different ways, and exposing kids to more active forms of learning. giving technology is not a total solution. teaching technology, now that is.
5:42 am
5:43 am
>> fox news alert, details, donald trump and vladimir putin will hold a summit between our two nations on july 16th in helsinki, finland. >> from the nato summit to meet vladimir putin following john bolton's talk with the russian president yesterday. >> it will take several weeks to prepare for the meeting and we will keep you posted on it, july 16th. >> you to react about what they can accomplish after the nato meeting is sen. ted cruz. what is at stake and the you agree with the president in pushing for this meeting? >> we have seen russia over the last decade get more aggressive, more hostile to the united states. under barack obama we saw a policy of weakness and appeasement that will encourage vladimir putin.
5:44 am
i'm grateful that under the trump administration we have an administration that will stand up and be strong, stand up for america's friends and stand up to our enemies and i'm hopeful of this summit that the president comes from a position of strength, that is the right way to deal with vladimir putin and russia. >> on the agenda is occupation of the ukraine, taking of crimea and according to ambassador bolton, he will bring up russian meddling in the election. don't you believe they need to be called out on that directly? >> absolutely and if you look at russia, russia is trying to expand their influence, putin has been canceled, he said a number of years ago he thought the greatest your political tragedy of the 20th century was the demise of the soviet union and what vladimir putin is trying to do is re-create the old soviet union which is why he invaded georgia and ukraine and the best check for that is a
5:45 am
strong and assertive president and united states. we have a dramatic improvement from the weakness we had under pres. obama. >> let's talk about the supreme court. >> justice kennedy sent a letter announcing he was going to step down and retire, that will happen july 31st. what is your reaction to this? what does this mean going forward? >> this is truly historic. this could well prove to be the most significant thing donald trump does in his entire time in office, the most significant thing the republican senate does and justice kennedy for 31 years has been the pivotal swing vote on virtually every 5-4 decision, every close case. if you care about the constitutional bill of rights, free-speech or religious liberty, the second amendment, the fourth amendment or the 10th amendment all our rights as americans come through the crossroads of the courts and this is an opportunity for donald trump to nominate a
5:46 am
strong constitutionalist which could be his single greatest legacy 20, 30, 40 years from now. >> you said yesterday you thought your colleague would make a great supreme court justice. another colleague chuck schumer says they should put this off until after the election so the people have spoken because that is what we have done in the past. but that is not accurate, is it? >> of course schumer is saying that, democrats are letting their hair on fire, they are apt applied -- apoplectic. if justice scalia had not passed away there's a possibility hillary clinton would be president of the united states right now. this was a major issue, a major reason we have donald trump and have a republican majority in the senate because the american people want justices who will
5:47 am
defend the constitution, the bill of rights, democrats want judicial activists, they want liberal extremists who will force their partisan agenda on the country, most of us don't want to be governed by 5 unelected lawyers in washington. you mentioned mike lee. hands down the best choice donald trump could make would be mike lee. other justice that you know with no gambling, no rolling the dice, republican presidents have gotten this wrong over and over again. let's not take a chance. let me mention two other names the president would be well advised to consider, number one, us solicitor gen. who just argued and won the travel ban case in front of the supreme court would make a phenomenal justice and fifth circuit appellate judge jim ho, came as an immigrant from taiwan, was a clerk for justice clarence thomas, the first ever asian american justice on the court, all three of them, mike lee, jim
5:48 am
ho would make extraordinary justices. >> no one knows more about the need to get something done on immigration being a texas senator than you. now we understand the house failed miserably, embarrassingly, 121-300 one in the last attempt to get something to you in the senate. being the military bases accommodate 12,000 migrant families, the coast guard is losing money that is going towards the border. where is the solution when it comes to immigration, the urgency when it comes to getting an answer and why do we have to lean on the defense budget? >> i'm glad they voted down the immigration bill, would have granted millions in amnesty, that would be a catastrophic -- i think two things, much broader than dreamers, a massive amnesty plan. >> is that why it failed?
5:49 am
people didn't want to rubberstamp on their name? >> i told house leadership the one thing they could do that would hand democrats control of congress is pass a massive amnesty plan the granted citizenship to millions of people here illegally. a lot of house members agreed with that assessment but there are two things we can and should do this your immigration. number one we need to build a wall and take up a reconciliation bill. that is what we did last year to pass the tax cut, that can't be filibustered. use reconciliation to build a wall. we only need 50 votes, democrat scream and yell but can't stop it and we can get that done this year and number 2, all of us have been horrified at the images we have seen of families being separated of kids taken from their parents, everyone canterbury children agree with their moms and dads. i introduced legislation to keep families together but at the same time enforce immigration law. democrats want to use this crisis, exploit the crisis to try to force releasing illegal
5:50 am
aliens who crossed illegally, that is the wrong approach, catch and release is the wrong approach with the legislation i introduced said let's keep kids with their parents, detain everyone together as a family and expedite the process and if they meet the standard for asylum grant it and if not send them home and send them home quickly. >> best videos of the last week or so, you versus jimmy kimmel, you won playing basketball. have you heard from any nba coaches yet? >> grace and alan, a lot of folks say that young man looks like me. i live vicariously through him. the game was horrific, it was not great basketball, i was very glad jimmy kimmel went home with the loss and we went home with the wind. >> people in texas have another reason to smile, thanks so much. >> 50 minutes after the top of the hour could donald trump's economic policy spur 5% gdp? charles payne on that next. emot,
