wall. i don't know if that was the case. obviously this person did not buy it she thought you know what? who is going to say anything to me. i'm going to do it. jillian: she has been caught. thanks for watching. have a good day. >> it was a good meeting. we discussed so many things. including nuclear. including war and peace. we really came to a lot of good conclusions. >> the president is facing harsh criticism from both parties following his talks with putin. >> he should have marched in, put the indictment on the table, and demanded justice. >> i have here the indictment that was presented. may i give this to you to look at, sir? >> lisa page has appeared to two house committees to deliver further testimony about her behavior at the fbi over the last couple of years. >> democrat and republicans are divided. >> in many cases she admits that the text messages mean exactly what they say. >> she made history at the

polls but the left might want to back off their glowing endorsement. >> use the term the occupation of palestine. >> um, i think what i meant is -- >> do you think can you expand on that. >> i'm not an expert on geo politics. ♪ r-o-c-k in the u.s.a. steve: rocking in the u.s.a. july 17th, 2018. rocking on the mezzanine level of fox news headquarters. ains solid returning from helsinki. abby: she texted me she is back on u.s. soil. she had to turn her phone off because you don't know what's going on with the hacking. steve: that's why she never. abby: she never responded to our texts. steve: of course she was over there to cover the
3:02 am
president and putin and they had a big summit. did you hear about it? the president said it was successful. but, then again, that's not what everybody is talking about today. brian: two hours one-on-one. then about an hour of a bilateral. then a 15-minute break, perhaps and it was time to meet the press. at which time you knew the first series of questions were going to be election meddlinrussianmeddling and the . 12 people on the russian side state sponsored if these numbers are correct. no reasonable not to believe that, who were part of the hacking into the election. not affecting the result. but, going ahead and creating chaos in our electoral system. when president trump was asked about that, he fell short. listen. >> asked a question, my people came to me, dan coats tame to me and others said they think it's russia. i have president putin. he just said it's not russia. i will say this. i don't see any reason why
3:03 am
it would be. steve: so the criticism of the president from both sides of the aisle is, wait a minute, you were given a choice, do you believe russia or do you believe your own intel community and he had that answer, which is puzzling to me because there have been a number of times when the president has said that i think it was russia. i think it was russia. i think there was meddling. he had the chance yesterday. he did not do it. and that has got a lot of people scratching. at love people are criticizing him for not being bold. abby: you are standing next to vladimir putin whose ultimate goal in life is to undermine our democracy. it was that one moment that had you to stand up for your own country, to stand up for your intelligence community. as we said this morning he did not do that he has tweeted out sense. he said as i said today and many times before i have great confidence in my intelligence people; however, i also recognize that in order to build a brighter future we cannot exclusively focus on the past as the world's two
3:04 am
largest nuclear powers. we must get along there was a real opportunities to be had. he was teed up. there was a lot of work that led into the summit yesterday and words do matter in these moments. brian: absolutely. the president sunday the impression i don't know why still if he says the russians hacked it makes his election look illegitimate. senator schumer and hillary clinton will never get over the fact that you won the election. neither will 16 republicans get over the fact that you won the primary. did the russians help with you that. no. from the day you came down the casey later you shocked the world from. november you had everybody losing you shocked the world. it wasn't because of russia. but russia's goal was to up end the process. they hate democracy. i will say this to the president when newt gingrich, when general jack keane and matt schlapp said the president fell short and made our intelligence apparatus look bad it's time to pay attention. it's easily correctable from the president's perspective.
3:05 am
will intense days of summits and private meetings and everything on his plate. that he was the moment that's going to stand out unless he comes out and corrects it. steve: look, a lot of people get confused. i'm not saying the president is confused. a lot of people are confused about the russia collusion thing. there is a big thing between collusion and the meddling. the president says there was no collusion. is he right in that. he says it every time. but pretty much in their brother, except vladimir putin knows that there was meddling. so, brian, to your point where it drives the president crazy apparently. when it is suggested that he did not win the presidency on his own, that there was some meddling that helped him, keep in mind all the authorities have said that there was meddling but not a single vote was changed. abby: by the way vladimir putin, did you watch that interview with chris wallace. brian: you got to watch it. abby: biggest take away i had was when he asked about the meddling in his own way he admitted to it he just
3:06 am
doesn't sees a what they does meddling. he sees it as providing people with the facts. if we upend emails and show you what's going on behind closed doors that's just showing the accuracy of what is going on. brian: his point was, abby, we showed you, john podesta' emails for how they got out there, they revealed the fact that hillary clinton and the dnc combined to sideline bernie sanders. they showed her all the things that she was up to, and he thinks it's okay. vants in his own evil mind because i exposed the truth. i didn't put out false emails. it's no big deal. why are the american people -- why wouldn't the american people benefit from transparency. it's not up to him to decide what private emails get exposed or not get expose you had. and with the president if he just turns around and says not okay. if it happens in november, the retribution you can't possibly calculate that's going to be coming down the pipe for russia. we can blink the lights on the entire country --
3:07 am
abby: by the way president trump won the election. he halls got to get over that. we are here now. brian: absolutely. abby: admitting meddling in the election it does not credit where he is. there is collusion and meddles. he has a real opportunity still i think to be had to address that and make it clear where he stands on this issue. steve: in fact, the president was on with sean hannity last night after his summit and said the whole russian meddling thing is driving a wedge between the united states and russia. >> i think it's a shame we are talking about nuke already polic proliferation. we're talking about syria and humanitarian aid. we get questions on the witch-hunt. first what's happenings to our country because of this. we have never done better in so many ways, including economically but when you see this thing going on, and i will tell you it's driven a wedge between us and russia. maybe we have just knocked down that wedge. brian: that's true it is fundamentally russia's fault. not ours.
3:08 am
if there is a wedge between them fundamentally it's with russia. it's not our fault. it's been over the top in people going out of their way to try to justify president trump's win, which democrats still can't figure out. meanwhile, rush limbaugh weighed. >> in the russians have been meddling in america since before i was born, folks. it isn't news. it isn't one way or the other of a special counsel doing a special intelligence investigation. it isn't necessary. the media looked at it as this press conference as the day they are going to nail trump. trump is turning the tables on them. ripping the democrats. he won this race. deaf it himself. he outworked hillary clinton. he worked harder than any candidate in recent memory, and he doesn't want that taken away from him. he won this thing and he wants everybody to realize he won it; that it wasn't stolen. steve: what do you think about all of this and everything that has transpired in the last 24 hours email us at or you can tweet us or facebook us as well. abby: it has only been a
3:09 am
week. it is tuesday. a lot going on with the fbi and lisa page how all know the lover of peter strzok and their text message exchanges. she was on the hill yesterday about those text messages and she was questioned by congress for the second day. she actually completely discredits peter strzok, her exlover in that testimony. she stands by her texts. she says i meant every word of those texts and what they mean. steve: in particular, you know, the infamous one that came out the day that the inspector general was going to have his report, curious timing there. remember this one where lisa page texted peter strzok and said trump's not ever going to become president, right, right? and strzok said no, no, we won't. he won't. we'll stop it. what he said during his testimony last week was we will stop it, meant the american people. well, apparently it sounds likes she might have had a dinner interpretation. and john ratcliffe, the congressman, he said that she was much more
3:10 am
transparent than mr. peter strzok. >> there are differences in their testimony on many cases. she admits that the text messages mean exactly what they say as opposed to agent strzok who thinks that we have all misininterpretted his own words on any will text message that might be negative. brian: she was evidently behind closed doors trying to diminish her importance but made no qualms about the fact she was a democrat and didn't want donald trump to be elected. the question is what did she do about it? i hear from people behind the scenes that people appreciate her cooperation she came off extremely intelligent and smart and forthcoming considering what she has been through personally over the last year. i'm not saying your heart goes out to her. but, after what we saw with peter strzok for 10 hours, you appreciate some humility that's evidently what she displayed. abby: he found every excuse in the book that people were taking it out of context. he didn't actually mean that. i assume their love life

here to discuss some of those possibilities senior fellow for the independent institute and author of the book "11 presidents," ivan eland joins us live from d.c. >> good morning. steve: let's look in the rear view mirror for a minute what did you think the president's meeting yesterday with president sput. >> taking lessons from nato summit and the russian summit, i think the key thing is that the president needs to learn thousand tell people directly but diplomatically the situation. i think you know, we were under attack in our elections. i think he really needs to bring that up and separate it from any collusion, you know, that he feels didn't happen. but he needs to respond very strongly on this issue of the attack. steve: sure. all right. he did not do that. that's what has a lot of people scratching heir heads yesterday. ivan, let's look at future meetings, you think it would be a shoe in for the president to sit down with

the new incoming president of mexico, right? >> i think. so they are kind of from opposite ends of the political spectrum but they are also sort of populist so they may have something in common. and also, you know, if the president is concerned about the border, immigration, security at the border. i mean, mexico is the country to talk to. and i think the united states could help mexico with some of their own problems. problem at the border. steve: of course the president has met with the president of china xi jinping but you think that would be a great summit, too. >> i think these at any rate trade difficulties could be a disaster if they're not corrected. he really needs to focus on intellectual property. that's what the chinese are really doing not the bilateral trade deficits that we have with them. i think they are stealing our intellectual property. and i think that's a problem by any standard in international trade. steve: and this last one i didn't see coming, you think

representative. proudly ignorant and thoroughly anti-israel. it makes sense. this poor girl alexandria ocasio cortez is making an impression and it's a lasting one. what do we know about her since she hit the national stage. she is a liar, lied about her upembryonicking. she pretended to be from a poor part of the bronx and grew up there. she grew up in one of the ritziest place in the condition. i know this because i grew up in the town over from her. she is proudly ignorant. great line she says you know, i don't really know a lot about this but i firmly believe, frequently wrong but never in doubt. she uses the slogans that we have seen from democrats now for the past 20 years. you know, we heard in the bush ear remarks bush lied, people died, he didn't. we heard no for oil, there wasn't one. trump co-liewfded with russia, there is no evidence of that the myth of israeli occupied palestine which i believe is the country east

3:46 am
it's supposed to disappear in 2025. they want to make it permanent. they want to make the standard deduction, very important, they want to make that permanent. they want to make changes to 401(k)s, iras, make it easy to put more money in and maybe a new rule which says you have to opt out of a 401(k) as opposed to opting in. sounds complicated. they want to make it easier for you to save more money for your retirement and, therefore, keep this boom going. brian: one of the big things in our country we have not attacked ever is retirement. what are we going to do if you have nothing saved in your life when you get to be that age of retirement. social security is tough to live on. this could be one thing for middle class families to respond to. >> very big deal. because, at the moment, when you join a corporation, and they have got a 401(k), a pension plan, you have to say i want in. i want to see the rule changed so that you have to say i want out. so you automatically in. you are automatically saving
3:47 am
money for your retirement. steve: stuart, if they were to pass in the house and the senate, you would need 60 votes in the senate. however, obviously they want to take the vote before the election to put some vulnerable democrats on the hook to take a vote. >> . steve: they might actually vote for it. >> they could indeed. brian: why not? >> not major corporations. steve: they didn't vote last time. >> they are not the richest people in our society. no, this is to the middle class. are you going to vote against something which is clearly in favor of america's middle class. i don't think they will. abby: what's happening today? who is he meeting with and can people expect this to happen soon. >> people in the house ways and means committee kevin brady is the chair. he writes tax policy. he is the front man to do this. i believe he is meeting 2:00 this afternoon in the oval office. the intention is to keep the boon going. we should talk about that. i don't think it's widely reported that we are in a boom situation. we have new figures from fox research showing 1.1 million

3:49 am

3:54 am
of puts the context of what we are facing now, a new cold war instigated by russia and puts it in historical context. what i'm saying is that putin's efforts to divide the western alliance, to undermine the united states to drive a wedge between the united states and great britain, all this is from a very, very old playbook from the kgb that goes all the way back to the 1920s and 1930s. they used to call it active measures back in the old days. but this book explores the kim master spy and sort of uses that as a way to talk about what we are facing now. brian: cyber technology make it easier to do things like this? >> extraordinarily easy. and as dni dan coats pointed out this week. we are under constant attack. and i don't think that's an overstatement. brian: he said a flashing red light. >> he borrowed language to

4:02 am
with mr. putin over in helsinki the president as they throwed to the pedestrian yum said it's a good meeting. here is what everybody is talking about. we had heard that the president was going to bring up russian meddling with mr. putin and apparently he did. the president wouldn't really admit that he thought that it was the russians and so one of the reporters asked, okay, who do you believe? do you believe your intel community, mr. president, or do you believe the russians? and this is the answer that everybody is talking about. >> all i can do is ask the question. my people came to me, dan coats came to me and some other, they said they think it's russia. i have president putin. he just said it's not russia. i will say this. i don't see any reason why it would be. steve: see, the thing about that answer which surprised a lot of people including me is the president in the past has said i think it was the
4:03 am
russians. i think it was the russians. i think there was meddling. we know there was meddling. the president's own intel chiefs have said mr. president, there was meddling. it was russia. and so when he said that yesterday, that surprised a lot of people, including me. abby: yeah. he has not come down strong enough yet on meddling in this election. there you were in front of the entire world next to vladimir putin of all people who his main mission in life is to undermine our democracy at home. it was a real opportunity for president trump to talk about how important this issue is. they said they talked about it behind closed doors. i'm sure there was a lot that happened there that is not being talked about today and maybe history -- time will tell. there was far more substance that many of the headlines have spoken to. but the problem is the way that he handled it in that moment, there is reason for people to pause and for people to be quite upset, frankly because this is a real issue that we face with russia. them trying to meddle in our elections. as you said, steve, our intelligence community has all made it very clear this
4:04 am
has happened in the past and going to continue to happen. even vladimir putin admitted it in his own way last night talking to our own chris wallace is a big deal. brian: the president said okay. let me make this clear. i said today and um times before, quote: i have great confidence in my intelligence people. however, i also recognize that in order to build a brighter future we cannot exclusively focus on the past as the world's two largest nuclear powers. we must get along. here's the problem. it's not our fault that they medalled in the election. it's their problem. we have the superior defense. we have 30 3 million people. they have the economy of a small south american country. why have the number one economy in the world with the most innovative people, period. they decide meddle in our election. don't affect the outcome. it's not unusual for another country to weigh in ton a leader that think want. you are going to tell me angela merkel didn't want hillary clinton to win you? are going to tell me that gorbachev flat out to bush
4:05 am
41 we want to you win this next election. let us know what we can do. they didn't say they were going to meddle. but if you want to voice support to say this is the right guy at the right time, you got it. steve: how many times have we heard the president say there was no collusion, there was no collusion between the russians and his campaign. we have heard that a million times. but, the question was about russian meddling. in particular. and, you know, i have heard from d.c. lawmakers that people get confused, you know, it all runs together to them. the collusion thing and the melgding thing, it's all russia. it's all glommed together. but, an hour ago i said i didn't know if the president was confused but maybe he actually is because in axios, i just got it delivered five minutes ago, they write trump has at times privately conceded that russia probably hacked, they say. but the prevailing theory among trump aides and alumni is simple. he writes: he can't
4:06 am
separate meddling from colluding, one source close to trump said. he can't publicly express any nuanced view because he think it concedes that there is something he did wrong. that makes sense there is a gigantic difference between meddling, which the intel community has said there was. and colluding which so far we haven't seen any evidence that that happened between the trump administration and the campaign and russia. abby: here is the problem. you take that approach, right? and it undermines your intelligence community but it also takes all the oxygen out of the room other big things discussed. they have been tough when it comes to iran. 700 russians and businesses sanctioned. 12 indicted under. 12 russians for meddling in the election. they have armed ukrainians. there are things to talk about in a positive way that have been done against russia. so the president spoke with sean hannity and talked again about meddling in the election. he says this has caused a
4:07 am
wedge between the two countries. here is what he said. >> i think it's a shame. we are talking about nuclear proliferation. why are talking about syria and humanitarian aid. we are talking about all of these different things and we get questions on the witch-hunt. very sad what's happening to our country because of this. we have never done better in so many ways including economically. when you see this thing going on -- and i will tell you it's driven a wedge between us and russia. maybe we have just knocked down that wedge. brian: we will see. it's their fault. they are the one who put the wedge there newt gingrich came out and said president trump must clarify his statements on helsinki on intelligence system and putin. it's the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected immediately. fine. i think the president should take heat. newt gingrich's wife works for him. he has two best-selling books about donald trump. so he is not the first to criticize. however, there are so many democrats who, again, including some republicans who go over the top at the first chance to criticize
4:08 am
the president. here's an example. >> the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> in many areas where we are working to solve problems, russia has been an ally. >> governor romney's answer, i thought, was incredibly revealing. he acts like the cold war is still on. russia is still our major adversary. i don't know where he has been. >> mitt romney talks like he has only seen russia by watching rocky iv. >> here is the problem every candidate has struggled to figure out how to deal with vladimir putin. you can't have it both ways. is he an adversary? ultimately they are one of our greatest threats because of what they are trying to do our democracy. we should take it seriously. he has a way to fix this and he should. for the same sake of this country you should always defend america when you leave the country of especially when you are in
4:09 am
helsinki standing next to vladimir putin of all people. brian: the word is jfk would have loved to undone his meeting with crews chevy. got the wrong signals wouldn't have the cuban missile crisis. the president corrected. the president is making history every single day obviously we are reporting it. this is something that needs to be corrected. chris wallace did not wait for that correction. he knew exactly what he was doing. he went after vladimir putin about election meddling and made him answer. listen. >> russia has a state has never interfered with the internal affairs of the united states let alone its election. >> but, sir, this is the indictment. it shows i have 12 names here. >> do you really believe that someone from the russian territory could have influenced the united states and influenced the choice of millions of americans? >> i'm not asking. >> ridiculous. >> i'm asking whether they tried. let me finish. they say that these units involved in hacking into
4:10 am
democratic party computers, stealing information, and spreading it to the world to try to disrupt the american election? may i give this to you to look at, sir? brian: daniel silva studied russia. he said typical kgb. they never will touch something like that. steve: here's the thing. what a dramatic tv moment. it looked like he was being served papers and putin didn't know what was going on he said yeah, right over there remember when the president was alongside theresa may in great britain he said i'm going to talk to putin. everybody is expecting a perry mason moment. he didn't get one but chris wallace did. that was really something. abby: if you haven't seen this interview obviously wait for our show to be over. go watch this interview. the body language alone and in that moment he basically admits to russia being responsible for our election merddling.
4:11 am
meddling. he doesn't see it as meddling. he sees it as uncovering facts and people can take the facts. steve: so tough next to last question how about these people who go against you, essentially, wind up dead? ryan brian he said you don't have assassinations? yeah, donald trump has enemies he doesn't kill them. that's a little different. i also think it's important to point out that vladimir putin almost cyber experts say he almost wanted to get caught. that they are better than. this they could have done it in a way that would have been harder to unveil. they say this was not hard to under cover. they wonder why he did that. ainsley: they want the word it know what they are capable of doing. there is a lot going on this morning. go over to jillian for headlines. jillian: it was a great interview. spot on there. get you caught up with the news. start with a fox news alert. man possible serial killer considered armed and dangerous. naming jose rodriguez as a

4:18 am
>> i wis she was much more forthcoming than peter strzok. people got upset for calling him out for being the scheming liar he is let me say this and it goes with what the president is getting mocked for in russia. i brought this out, and the mainstream media will not touch it. to me fox is the mainstream media. that is we know there is no question the intelligence community inspector general sent chuck mccoal collick told peter strzok that despite what. so media was saying a major foreign power had gotten every one of over 30,000 hillary clinton emails through her own server. everything that came and went except for four. and peter strzok did nothing about it. and apparently he didn't
4:19 am
tell lisa what he had learned from the intel community ig. they sat on that. and the president knows that this foreign entity, not rickenbacker, had everything. not -- russia had everything. it wasn't just russia. there were other major players. and strzok did nothing. lisa apparently didn't know. but. brian: i want to get to lisa page. she is a democrat. she doesn't like trump. but she was different. in what way was she different and more forthcoming. what can you tell us you learned? >> well, she used a more use ise contrite person. like i said, brian, she is a democrat. she wanted hillary to win, and she did not want trump to win. and that's been obvious. there were times the fbi lawyers would be reaching for the button to mute her comment and she would answer before they could mute her
4:20 am
comment. brian: is she contradicting peter strzok in any way? >> not so much. but she has given us more incite as to who was involved in what. of course, when i hear brennan or clapper either say the kind of things they have been saying recently, it tells me wow, we must be getting to them. those guilty dogs are barking pretty loud. i think she will be a good witness. i don't know that we're going to have a public hearing with her. but the important thing is to continue to gather the evidence, bob goodlatte, when we were meeting privately yesterday, after the questioning, he is not done. we're going to keep digging until we get to the bottom of this. it was outrageous. brian: five second answer are there other supervisors involved aside from peter strzok? >> yes. brian: congressman gohmert, can't wait to find out what those names are they need to

this is a slap in the face not only to americans but a slap in the face to the intelligence community and gives open door and invitation for russia to do this again in 2018. not only are these actions treasonous, anyone who supports them can quite frankly consider themselves a traitor. steve: kayleigh, what do you say? >> ridiculous. democrats were singing much different song not too long ago. you saw the clips that were played. democrats were cheering on president obama when he whispered to vladimir putin i have more flexibility after the election. they were cheering on hillary clinton when she extended that goofy red reset button. enough to they think that putin is a big threat. well, guess what? if you were that concerned about putin, rest assured no administration has been on -- as tough on putin as president trump. look at his actions. he sanctioned more than 100-plus russian targets. he closed two diplomatic annexes in the russian consulate. he enforced imagine us imagin my

sanctions. >> look at his actions yes, let us look at his actions. yesterday, on the global stage he stood there and he blamed his own intelligence committee and he said that what we're seeing in russia is actually something, you know what? , putin has said he didn't do this so let's go ahead and belief him. let's look at the facts here. let's not spin this. >> i gave you facts, wenty. >> and i'm giving you facts. let's look at this in a bipartisan manner. this is nothing that says republicans or democrats go ahead and let's give trump the green light. no, we are going to hold him accountable. >> wendy, did president obama. >> american stage. >> wendy, let's deal in facts. >> let's deal in facts. we are dealing in facts. steve: one at a time. >> did president obama sanction 100 u.s. targets, yes or. >> no no. >> did president obama. >> he wasn't in bed with the russians like your president is. that is a fact. that is a fact. so let's deal with facts. >> i gave you facts. >> if president obama was in

4:46 am
movement starting. important to reach out to people that are probably like i was years ago frustrated at the democratic party looking for a different way forward. honestly, yeah, it probably is more than politics. i found my faith later in life with my wife. i became pro-life as i saw the birth of my children and i saw innocent life thrown away in combat in iraq and afghanistan. those are serious differences with my parents. but that said, my wife and i never tried to split our family up. our goal is that we could stay together. we are blessed to have the love of our aunts, our uncles our cousins who are all deeply involved in our lives and our kids' lives. every way, shape and form helping us out. our focus here in writing this op-ed and the decision my wife and i made to write this to say to those of you out there looking at the democratic party that in no way, shape, or form that is doing anything to make our country more prosperous and secure and finding ways to lift them up and make them more successful and instead pushes a message of dependency there is a way forward. i'm not saying the republican party is perfect i will say i used to be a

democrat and today i'm a conservative because these policies work better. we have to plan for the future. we have to strategically invest in defense so that your kids are safe and they don't get in the same war that's got in when i was growing up. we can stop wars before they start. stop spending money so we're indebting future generations. can i do all of that as a conservative. abby: what your family has gone through i think speaks for so many families in this country where you fall on different sides of the political aisle and sometimes it's difficult to sit down at the dinner table and have real conversations about life because politics is the way that we all think. it's the way we think about the world. we think about family and life. what's the situation like with your family now? can you talk to your parents or did you decide that it's best that we separate ways? >> well, unfortunately my parents made the decision to break off contact with their larger extended family. not just my wife and my kids and i but also to their siblings and others. so it's a decision that they made and it's an unfortunate one because ultimately in my mind culture is upstream from politics the way we
4:48 am
treat each other and fabric of our society drives politics. we need to thinking about how we bind this country together. all of our rights given to us by god. our government is not allowed to infringe upon it and responsibility but also opportunity down to families. that's a sensible way to live and that's a way i would think we can all agree upon and find ways to go forward and be more successful. in my family, the situation is unfortunate. it's not a decision that my wife and i made. it was pressed upon us. but, the important thing is reaching out to people now and saying let's grow our republican party. let's pull people into conservatism and say ultimately this is about empowering you and making you more successful. that message resonates. brian: $2,700 goes to tammy baldwin from your parents not on speaking terms because you are a republican who is pro-life. they got to be proud of you, especially your years in the marines. kevin nicholson, best of luck. >> thank you all very much. look forward to talking to you more soon. abby: thanks for speaking out. good to have you on this

5:02 am
there was one particular exchange and a question directed at president trump asking about the meddling in the election, do you believe the intelligence community given you their own facts or do you believe the russians. here is how that went down. >> all i can do is ask the question. my people came to me, dan coats came to me and some others, they said they think it is russia. i have president putin, he just said it is not russia. i will say this i don't see any reason why it would be. steve: after that all hell broke loose because it looks like the president of the united states and throwing intel community and what a number of republicans and democrats all but conceded that the russians did meddle in the election in 2016. they're trying to do it again. of course the president of the united states. we've been talking about this last two hours, the president of the united states does not like the suggestion that he did not win fair and square. that the russians colluded or they meddled to have him win.
5:03 am
he has been very clear. there was no collusion. however collusion and meddling are two separate issues and unfortunately for the president because he is really taking the heat on this, he has maintained there was no collusion. but at the same time, he has also admitted that, yeah, there probably was meddling. it was probably russia. so why he said that yesterday, a lot of people are scratching their heads, what was that about. abby: meddling happened originally under barack obama, former president obama. the meddling happened before the 2016 election. it will happen far beyond where we are at this point in our country's history. this was a moment he had to talk directly to the world and to vladmir putin, whose main goal in life is to undermine our democracy. make it clear how serious this issue is, stand by the united states, stand by the intelligence community, all given him the facts and reports that they have all received on this. 12 russians have been indicted by the justice department

5:05 am
collusion and witch-hunt and save him a lot of trouble. byron writes. the president made it very clear last night with sean hannity the whole meddling issue is driving a wedge between the u.s. and russia. >> i think it's a shame. we're talking about nuclear proliferation. we're talking about syria and humanitarian aid. we're talking about all these different things and we get questions on the witch-hunt. very sad happening to our country because of this. we have never done better so many ways including economically, when you see this thing going on, i will tell you it has driven a wedge between us and russia. maybe we knocked down that wedge. brian: it is their fault there is a wedge. we didn't hack into their election. he got 90% of the vote because a lot of his opponents get killed or are afraid to step up. abby: we weren't behind closed doors in that meeting. i'm sure there was far more substance and focus on issue -- steve: north korea, syria,

problem, we're not a threat, then why did you enlist people to be part of nato. why do you influence the ukrainian elections and georgia elections. his point of view is contradictory from his point of view, he felt like they were closed in on. ukrainian election was nod meddling. i don't want the russians to pickthe leader. when they rose up in the streets it wasn't because of us, that was zero degrees. they were rallying for freedom. not because of us. abby: why do people that disagree with you, and journnanists wind up dead? answer that question. brian: they killed bill browder's lawyer. abby: jillian with other headlines. jillian: get you caught up on this breaking news starting with a fox news alert. isis blamed for a suicide bombing that killed 20 people in northern afghanistan. the explosion happening at a mosque during a funeral.

of the media in this should stick to pointing out the obvious, that donald trump missed an opportunity to speak truth to power and stand up to one of the world's biggest powers, put america's interests first. we can all agree this was a big failure on donald trump's part. when cable news media outlets give airtime to tinfoil hat conspiracists that trump was committing high treason meeting with vladmir putin, i think that discredits their point. i think they should stick to pointing out the obvious. when they go extreme, it makes people say i will not listen to you. steve: sure. after robert mueller indicted those 12 russians last week clearly the press was waiting for the answer. when it came who do you believe, your own intel community that says there was meddling or the russians, president trump, all he had to say, was mr. putin says he didn't meddle but i don't believe him. >> yeah. you know what? trump's brand is to be a guy, a

5:48 am
president trump weighed in. >> we'll do it probably in october, maybe a little sooner than that it will be more of a middle class. we did a lot for the middle class. this is more aimed to the middle class. we're talking about bringing 21% down to 20. for most part the rest of it would go back to the middle class. >> what are we specifically expecting this afternoon, going forward. possible extension of the individual tax cuts. possibly universal savings account. more specifically helping smaller employers provide savings plans for employees. also offering annuities to turn worker savings into guaranteed annual income. the problem that is going to be debated quite a bit these tax cuts cost a lot of money. they cost over a trillion dollars. they added to the deficit. and so that is something that will be very difficult to pass through but republicans want the issue to run before the midterms. steve: absolutely. they can run, win on that they think. kristina, thank you for the live
