3:04 am
representatives, actually gave the democrats the opportunity to officially go on the record and say i want to abolish ice. but, you know what? the democrats declined and simply a joirt of them said yep, i'm here but i'm not taking a stand. ainsley: democrats withholding their votes. not voting no on it voting present. there were 18 that voted for, 34 against, and 133 voted present. >> this was a resolution supporting ice. it's different than the bill we told you about three democrat members said we're going to come up with a bill to abolish ice. those members said you know what? if that bill comes up, we are not even going to vote for it yesterday was a chance to say we support ice. rather than say we support the men and women of ice, so many democrats, 133 of them just said yep, i'm here. i'm not taking a stand. brian: mark who span soared the whole thing i only had 9 sponsors. republicans are not giving me enough time. i doubt it the polls obviously show the american
3:05 am
people, regardless of your political stripes overwhelmingly do not want to end ice. the president tweeted this out the two biggest pongts of ice today are the democratic party and ms-13. tom homan spent a lot of the day on television. it was great to have him here. he said as former acting director of ice, it was good to see someone step up. but, by the way, the ramification fuss did abolish it, you wouldn't like it. >> look as the at the other side of the house, homeland security investigations if they would abolish ice this year, there would be over 900 children that weren't rescued from sexual predators. 2200 more sexual predators walking the streets of this country. there would be over 100,000 criminal aliens. people in the united states illegally and committed a critical act after they were here illegally against a citizen. there would be 100,000 more of those walking the streets this year abolish ice is just a ridiculous concept. ainsley: he says it's ridiculous to abolish ice. if you don't lining the
3:06 am
laws, change the laws. the men and women of ice are doing what the law say. if you don't like it, change the laws. just to also remind that you republicans overwhelmingly won this it passed by 244 to 35. brian: something else coming out on the immigration front come over to russia. the house is moving over with a proposal to avoid a shutdown in december. include $5 billion for border security. most of which would be some type of barrier. you don't need a wall. you need a solid fence. some needs fixed. 5 billion the president would be happy with. and he tweeted out a thank you to the republican who sponsored it. go through the house. the problem is in the senate they don't seem to -- even the republicans don't seem to be on board of it. fighting it in a bipartisan way. any type of funding of the wall democrats look at that for a political victory for the president rather than what's good for the country.
3:07 am
ainsley: congressman yoder is from your in effect woods. the weakens city area. is he up for re-election. the president is going to go to the convention next tuesday endorse him. steve: he is going to join us live at 8:15 this morning. let's talk about what the president was up to yesterday. the president once again reaffirmed his commitment to combat russian meddling, you know, the russians have been meddling in our elections for many, many years. he sat down with jeff glor of cbs for a second week. he said he personally holds vladimir putin responsible for russian interference. and he also said i told him he has got to stop it. watch. >> you say you agree with u.s. intelligence that russia meddled in the election in 2016. >> i have said that before, jeff. i have said that numerous times before. and i would say that that is true, yeah. >> but you haven't condemned putin specifically. do you hold him personally
3:08 am
responsresponsible. >> well, i would because he is in charge of the country. just like i consider myself responsible for things that happen in this country. certainly, as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes. >> what did you say to him? >> very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling, we can't have any of that look, we are also living in a grown-up world, will a strong statement, president obama supposedly made a strong statement, noble geraldo it but i let him know we can't have this. we're not going to have it. and that's the way it's going to be. brian: the president once and for all wants to put an end to the thought that he does not believe that vladimir putin and russia meddled in the elections. also a big story that came out probably about 9:00 last night david sanger wrote in the "new york times" in today's edition says the president was told directly right before the inauguration i imagine by john brennan, i imagine by james comey or i imagine by james clapper three people
3:09 am
who have shown to be vehemently anti-trump that vladimir putin personally made sure they meddled in the election and he was personally responds cybil for it and the term is the president reluctantly agreed grudgingly convinced that putin ordered the interference. ainsley: the president has called out numerous times vladimir putin for meddling nut election and, russia, listen to this. >> as far as hacking i think it was russia. we also get hacked by other countries and other people. and i can say that you know, when we lost 22 million names and everything else that was hacked recently, they didn't make a big deal out of that. that was something that was extraordinary. that was probably china we have much hacking going on. i think it was russia and could have been other people and other countries, could have been a lot of the people interfered. i think it was russia. but i think it was probably
3:10 am
other people and/or countries. >> it was russia. and i think it was probably others also. >> the russians had no impact on our votes whatsoever when you, certainly, there was meddling and probably there's there was meddling from other countries and maybe other individuals. steve: so, as you can see right there he has said a number of times he thought it was russia he thought they were meddling. brian. some of the people that were in the room the day that president-elect donald trump was briefed on that putin personally ordered it john brennan, james clapper, mike rogers and james comey, they all briefed the president during the transition period. one of the people in the room was john brennan who, in that same interview yesterday, the president referred to him as a low life. he says he has got complete confidence in the new intelligence communities, particularly dan coats who currently is saying that the warning lights are flashing red. they are trying to do it again, but, nonetheless, he does not have so much confidence in the previous
3:11 am
intelligence community, which, as you are about to see in the next hour, he feels like was out. ainsley: sitting down it jeff gloria and calling out erdogan the president of turkey who locked up a pastor who has been a pastor for more than 20 years. the president said send him home because he is a good christian man. brian: russian ambassador to the united states an tolltoli. i want to compliment the president afraid make things worse for it they had a productive meeting. vladimir putin will tell us what happened evidently in russia today will mention the meeting. what the president has to do is come out and tell us what went on in that meeting and what was agreed to even in principle or a working group going forward. steve: right. brian: i think that is the most important thing, more than the press conference, to find out where we are and our relationship. he says when i return from
3:12 am
moscow, i have a very clear cut conversation to knock on every door of the national security council sill to understand what we can do together to realize the agreement, the ideas the two presidents supported. he has a positive feeling about it is he afraid to express it because of the sentiment in america right now. steve: so we are waiting to hear from the president, but the russians are already saying we have a handshake deal on arms control in syria and some other stuff. so stay tuned, folks. all right, meanwhile 6:12 in new york city. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us. jillian: that's right. good good morning. we start with a fox news alert. at least 22 soldiers hurt when a large tent collapses at a military base in california. army officials say wind caused by a black hawk helicopter blew it down at fort hunter leg get. it happened during a ceremony. are a had a stroke and died protecting president trump

for bernie sanders'. campaign. she joins us from houston to explain. good morning, tezlyn. >> good morning. >> steve: 73% of democrats say yes, we would like somebody new. what does it say to you. >> what it says to me i think it was obvious in 2016 about hillary clinton being very certainly well known and although she did have a lot of popular votes, i think it was more about the ideals that senator sanders brought to the table even if people haven't figured out how he was going to make those things happen. i think it was more about ideology. me personally i worked with senator sanders because i wanted to see someone shake up the system. steve: he did. >> he absolutely did. steve: not necessarily agreeing with everything he said. i think it was critical to 2016. last couple weeks ever since she beat an incumbent in new york.

leanged. she is way too far to the left will will will for democrats. what do you make of that comment? >> well, i think, you know, shows that once again the democratic party is struggling with inner fighting a civil war among progressives vs. moderate democrats. even on the progressive side there is the sanders wing and senator warren wing. it shows there is a split. any time someone goes against incumbent to vote for someone that doesn't have any political experience it, shows that there is obviously a concern on the ground there is still a disconnect much like in 2016. steve: you are describing where progressives -- within the democratic party have you got people to the far left, the moderates, and and trying to figure out what the next message is and hot next person is. right now it seems it's muddled, right? >> a lot of people have signed up with bernie

3:48 am
say that we should immediately going to the taxpayers to foot the bill. but i think it's one of those issues that is going to continue to be a headache more mayors and the the residents of san francisco. ainsley: what about the big businesses? how are they feeling about this. it could force them to move to san francisco if this passes. every single person that works for big businesses are taxed. called a head tax. all that money goes to the homeless issue. >> yes. in particular in san francisco, what they would like to do is, they would be hoping to tax all businesses that have gross receipts at $50 million or over. the problem is that they are advertising this as a tax on big businesses. but the reality is that they there are plenty of businesses ha have $50 million in revenue have incredibly low profit margins. think of large retailers, grocery stores. what's going to happen is it's going to fall on the consumer to pay this tax. that's usually what happens with taxes in general.
3:49 am
it's being sold as a tax on big businesses when, in reality, it's going to be felt most heavily by the consumer. ainsley: redistribution of wealth, too. if you own a business, and the government is taxing you x amount of dollars, you are going to pass that back to the customer because you can't afford it, right? >> right. you are going to see a small, relatively small hike, perhaps, on the price of goods that you purchase. that's definitely a possibility. or you might see businesses cut back on labor costs. you know, if they are looking to maintain their current profit margin, if it's pretty low, you might see them try to cut back on certain labor costs which could include firing or laying off workers or reducing them to part time. steve: these are big businesses. they make a lot of money. maybe some of the homeless in that area could work for these big companies. thank you for being on with us. >> thank you for having me. ainsley: you are welcome. msnbc tried to get trump supporters ter bash the presidet in helsinki. >> is he trying to make this

steve: all right, gillian, thank you very much. trying to get the go on the record. called out ice we have to get rid of it. separating families all these different things. one new yorkers referred to as it a terrorist organization. so steve scalise said yesterday that the democrats who don't vote yes, that's going to be a tough bill to -- tough vote to explain. he said voting presents means they are not going to be willing to stopped up for our men and women who sacrificed their lives to keep america safe u it's a clear vote. nonetheless, 133 democrats, rather than vote yes or no, simply voted yep, i showed up for the vote but i'm not going to take a stand. ainsley: former ice director thomas homan says the democrats would rather abolish ice than just fix the laws. listen to this. >> look at the other side of the house, homeland security investigation, if they would have abolished ice this year, it would be over 900 children that weren't rescued from sexual predators. there would be 2200 more sexual predators walking the streets of this country. there would be other 100,000
4:06 am
criminal aliens. people in the united states illegally and committed a criminal act after they were here illegally against a citizen in this country to be 100,000 more of those walking the streets this year. abolish ice is a ridiculous concept. brian: that was one of the show votes that took place yesterday. it was a joke when the democrats were taking their cues from a 28-year-old first time politician who is really clueless about what's happening with the challenges of what's happening on our border. but they did. and others did like senator jilgillibrand of new york. very few proud of the way she acted cynthia nixon 36 points behind governor cuomo. got their lead ferrari three people who are questionable leaders and paid the price politically. now let's talk about what's on everyone's mind. that's the president clarifying how he feel the rule vladimir putin played in the meddling with our election. i cannot believe a year from when this all became apparent and about three years from when the obama administration knew about
4:07 am
it. we're still here. steve: russians have been meddling in our election i heard yesterday since 2008. the president did sit down with cbs yesterday. he says he does have confidence in our intel agencies. he reaffirmed that he personally holds putin responsible for the russian interference, he laid down the law him. not going to have it at the same time while he says he trusts thitrust batch of intel officials. he does not trust everybody who was in the intel community during the obama years. listen to this. >> i do have confidence in our intelligence agencies as currently constituted. i think that dan coats is excellent. when they tell me something, it means a lot. >> do you think any intelligence agency, u.s. intelligence agencies are out to get you? >> well, certainly in the past it's been terrible. you look at brennan. you look at clapper. you look at hayden. you look at comey.
4:08 am
you look at mccabe. you look at strzok and his lover, lisa page, you look at other people in the fbi that have been fired, that are no longer there. certainly i can't have any confidence in the past but i can have a lot of confidence in the present and the future. in the past, no. i have no confidence in a guy like brennan. i think is he a total low life. brian: proven to be politically centric. james comey actually tweeted out vote democrat. people are portraying them as apolitical. they are not apolitical. they are anti-trump. and david sang gore wh sanger tn as anyone. 2016 before the election proof positive that vladimir putin personally ordered the hit on our intelligence. well, that's fine. that's true. and the president has indicated in the past he said that let me ask you something. if john brennan knew about it and clapper, if the red
4:09 am
light was flashing was it flashing in september? was it flashing in july? don't you think part of the narrative has to be what was president obama doing and can anyone say he made the right move in saying knock it off one time in september? he actually had a chance to stop it, alert the american public before we even got into the final lap of our election. ainsley: why don't you think he did. >> this is what they say they were concerned president trump when he was running as a nominee was talking about being a rigged election. he was concerned that if he came out and said something like that, that would play into president trump. and he thought for sure hillary clinton was going to win and we'll just handle it from there. she lost, and after you briefed him, you pulled him aside and told him about some dossier which is nothing about a series of memos and said by the way we are looking into that as well. so, that all came down to the president in a series of days and the next thing you know, he is under constant
4:10 am
investigation, you can't just pull out one part of this story and say why does doesn't the president just admit it it's all part of this narrative. he does realize that vladimir putin did a personal hit on our election. steve: at the same time he also feels as we just heard that. so people in the intel community were out to get him u. brian: is he wrong? ainsley: buried it. they knew this information. buried it because they thought hillary clinton would win. steve: that's right. after that interview, james clapper responded in speaking for mr. brennan he said it's a badge of honor when the president of the united states seeks to go after individuals. what do you think about that? let us know at do you think some were tout get president trump or is he just mistaken? brian: add one other thing, louie gohmert said this a couple days ago. devin nunes has clarified it not only did the russians hitten us on the election. a foreign entity was able to get to hillary clinton's 30,000 emails.
4:11 am
louie gohmert said it on our show a couple of days ago. president says not just russia. i think it's russia and others. he is not winging it. he has been told it. steve: it might be more than one country u. brian: that's part of the narrative. don't pretend it's only russia. steve: three or four or five countries could get. in stay tuned, we hear they are investigating. ainsley: hand it over to jillian who has more headline for us. ainsley: a manhunt intensifying for accused cop killer on the run in raw. the fbi offering $10,000 we regard for information leading to the arrest of justin ywkey, he shot officer. the 10-year police veteran was honored in 2014 with the officer of the year award. he leaves behind a wife and three small children. it marks the sixth officer shot in the u.s. in one week. also breaking right now. at least 22 soldiers hurt when a large tent collapses at a military base in

ainsley: a horrifying alleged ride share rapist san francisco turns out to

be illegal immigrant. orlando posed as a driver to pick up and assault women. brian: because san francisco is a sanctuary city does this mean local authorities won't tell ice if is he in fact released from jail and does it echo other cases out of san francisco like kate steinle. after all it's a sanctuary state. ainsley: here to weigh in on this is don rosenburg. son killed in san francisco by illegal immigrant in 2000 10. if he is let out, what will happen? will ice be notified i guess not if it's sanctuary, right? >> well, san francisco would have a choice in this case. if he is just let out charges are dropped or acquitted in a trial, then there is no requirement whatsoever for san francisco to notify ice. but, if he is convicted, and he, you know, has a multi-year term, the sanctuary stay law restricts
4:19 am
san francisco or any jurisdiction in california can report, but they are not required to. so even if is he convicted of all the rapes, and then he gets out, san francisco can let him go and not cooperate with ice. and that's why i have launched an initiative to overturn that law and require the local police jurisdictions and sheriffs to cooperate with ice. brian: you know what? maybe is he not even there he knows where to go in order not to get tossed and sanctuary states. good luck people of california. the ice statements san francisco chronicles. this the san francisco jail does not honor ice detainers nor notify ice of impending of aliens in its custody. has the answer. jail not only provides refuge for illegal aliens but it shields criminal aliens who prey on people in the community. i don't like that trade-off,
4:20 am
do you? >> hopefully our initiative will be on the ballot in 2020. if anybody wants information it's called fight sanctuary again, our initiative would require the san francisco police to cooperate with ice, so, you know, hopefully he will be in jail long past 2020. but once that passes, then they wouldn't have a choice u they could be held criminally liable if they didn't. ainsley: these are children u these are lives, unfortunately you know what's at stake here. it's just amazing i feel like they are putting the illegal aliens, the illegals that are not in this country paying taxes above those like you who do the right thing. i'm sorry for your loss. >> yeah. thank you. yeah. it's not even people here illegally. it's people here illegally and then have committed additional crimes that they are protecting. ainsley: criminals. >> that's outrageous.

a plan and that's why part of that plan was the president addressing it the next day in the oval office. steve: when he said he misspoke. mike puck beis a fox news contributor, former governor of the great state of arkansas. he joining us right now from huckabee world headquarters. mike, i know you feel that the president did the right thing in coming out and saying pretty quickly he misspoke. at the same time there are still a number of people on the political left who say, okay, he may have misspoken, but it's still an impeachable offense. >> that's absurd. i mean, that is as absurd assaying that barack obama should have been impeached when he wowed to th bowed to thi king. you may not like what he does. impeachment implies something that was intentionally harmful to the united states and something that was done that is the constitution says high crimes and misdemeanors. none of which has happened. people are irrational. and i think what is just remarkable is to watch these
4:35 am
folks sitting around their desks on national news cable shows talking to each other. obviously not talking to the rest of america, because they think we are the great unwasheunwatched and deplorable. getting more irrational. here is what i am convinced of. these guys have not slept since november 2016. they are overwhelmed with insomnia. they have become historical and they no longer represent rational thought. they are becoming a joke. they are becoming comical to watch because they are unhinged to a level that, when you start saying that what donald trump did in helsinki at a news conference is the same as 9/11, that is an insult to the 3,000 people killed. it's just nuts. brian: this quote from the russian ambassador to the u.s., even in talking with you now to the reporter, i think "the washington post," i'm afraid to say something positive about the american president because, when american journalists or policymakers read my interview, they will say russia is, again, meddling
4:36 am
and helping donald trump. that's how bizarre this is. the other countries don't even know how to compliment the president. >> well, better that they don't, according to this media because, if they do, then there is some kind of collusion going on behind the scenes. that's what i'm saying. it's insane. it's gone so far that it's now having the backlash and i also think the law of unintended consequences is taking place. the media, rather than becoming more credible has become less credible. people look at them as if they are a joke. they don't take them seriously, except for the little group of people who breathe into their own paper bag and that's about it. but, does this have an effect on the midterm elections? yes. it will make more people turn out and vote for the republicans. ainsley: you know, governor, arafter he misspoke and then he made the correction i thought -- we all thought how are voters going to feel about this? we know how the left is going to feel and how the mainstream media is going to cover. this then i thought what
4:37 am
about the republicans? you have a lot of republicans coming out against him. then i wanted to see what the reaction would be after he clarified what he actually meant. and it turns out people in middle america, they just don't care because they like what is he doing on the economy. and i was shocked to see msnbc go out and actually air this, watch. >> there is a lot of backlash going on now, especially when he said well i said i didn't. i didn't. whatever. >> at love people weren't happy. >> yeah, yeah. but i'm totally in support of him. >> why? why are you so supportive? >> because he's an entrepreneur. he's a businessman, working class person's president. he is trying to make this country great again. >> do you support the president? >> yes. >> do you continue to support him despite -- >> -- yes. >> this week? >> yes. >> i don't care one bit about the rest of the world. they ain't worried about us, i'm not worried about what the rest of the world thinks. ainsley: governor, what's
4:38 am
your reaction? >> well, i think a lot of the people in the mainstream media and many of the democrats but then again i repeat myself, i think a lot of them don't understanding the reason donald trump was elected is people you just saw on the interviews. they're the reason. they are tired of elitist snobbing looking down their noses at them. they saw their paychecks and pensions disappear under the policies of these people who did quite well under any economy but the folks who are standing on concrete floors, lifting heavy things, getting their hands dirty, they were taking a beating and they had had enough of it. they still have had enough of it they are tired of having this attitude given toward them, that somehow they are just not as good, that they are the basket of deplorables. and they are rising up. this is not going away. this is not one election moment. this is a movement. people seeing it. steve: the president has been talking. brian was referencing an item in the "new york times"
4:39 am
where it sounds like damage control. we played we played number of times come out in the past in the last year or two saying essentially that he thought it was russia meddling or other countries or something like that. he has done that a number of times. but, to your point about politics, axios, in the last hour, released a poll they did. they said 79% of republicans approve of the way president trump handled the putin press conference. and 85% think russia's war on our election is just a distraction. there are a whole bunch of people who feel that way. >> the fact is we all recognize russia tried to meddle in our elections. what we also recognize if our brains weren't left on the nightstand is it didn't impact the election. hillary didn't lose because of russia. in fact, she tried to help russia get a dossier so they could do something damaging to donald trump.
4:40 am
that's what i want to keep reminding people. there was collusion. and it was hillary's campaign who did it did the russians try interfere? yes. did they succeed? it doesn't appear that they did. but the fact is we tried toll interfere in elections all over the world our selves. so let's thought be too much patting ourselves on the back how pure we are. ainsley: governor, the president was tweeting about -- a message to erdogan, the president of turkey saying please release this pastor. this pastor is andrew brunson. we talked about him for a year and a half at least. this october he will be behind bars for two years. all he was doing was trying to spread christianity in tuckery, he and his wife. and the president tweet you had out erdogan should do something to free this wonderful christian husband and father. he has done nothing wrong and his family needs him. turkish government is staying that he is a spy. what's your reaction to this? >> well, first of all, i'm so proud of our president and vice president, both of whom have been very strong, very clear to erdogan and turkish government.
4:41 am
turkey is a nato country. it's getting a little bit disgusting that a country that we may have to defend is becoming as oppressive as maybe some country we would have to defend against. i think it's time for us to evaluate whether turkey belongs in nato if they are going to be, you know, a true player in freedom, then you cannot have this kind of political prisoner held for spurious reasons, which is exactly what's happening with governo pastor brunson. brian: sarah was able to answer this question definitively. >> i have heard of her. brian: with the president be open to russians question or have bill browder and former ambassador michael mcfollow later straightened out by the state department. do you think the president would ever give up those two individuals? >> no. i cannot imagine any circumstances under which that would happen. it would be disastrous and absurd and there is no way
4:42 am
he would do that. why we? i mean, you don't give our own people over to foreign governments. you just don't do that and he would never do it, ever. ainsley: that was in exchange for the 12 that were indicted. probably not going to happen. steve: governor huckabee, thank you very much for joining us today. >> thank you, guys. have a great day. brian: meanwhile, democrats worry president trump is starting a trade war. now, the fed seems to be firing back. stuart varney is here. he says the numbers don't lie. he is on deck. i like when he walks. i hate when he just stands there. steve: plus annual tradition tradition kick things off in the next hour. live from 48th and 6th. good morning, folks.

4:48 am
now, the federal reserve did say, look, the tariffs which have been impose have had raised some prices in some areas. but that's not interfered with the growth of the economy. if you look at their report, it shows that 11 out of 12 districts in america which cover the country 11 out of 12 so he moderate or strong growth. the fed is usually restrained in the words its used. when you say strong growth. that is strong growth indeed. only one area around st. louis, that shows slight growth. so, across the country, have you got growth despite some prices rising from tariffs and by the way, one week from tomorrow, we're going to report 4% growth of this economy. best rate in many, many years. doublindouble the rate in the first quarter. ainsley: have trade discussions because our economy is doing so well and we afford to raise prices. >> we have strong economy at

5:09 am
actively involved to, because if democrats get controlled, they will drop all of this investigation. they are not going to do anything on this investigation. steve: so you look at what the current president of the united states said regarding the old regime and intel community much. they were out to get him. he feels that is a possibility. devin nunez says the people at the doj and the fbi in the leadership, they want democrats. keep in mind, if the democrats take over, all of these hearings into what happened in run-up to start spying on the trillionp team, that ends. one of the reasons devin nunez feels that way because current leadership at doj, fbi, a lot of republicans feel have been slow walking all the documents, production. there is still a lot of things the republicans want to see to see to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. they simply will not give it to them, president of the united states, it is his
5:10 am
administration, he could declassify everything, get it to the republicans with a signature on the paper. brian: as devin said, louie gohmert said couple days ago. it wayne just the russians. there was a foreign entity listed in the report in michael horowitz' report and house report, not the russian state intercepting 30,000 emails. did the russians do it? yes. did vladmir putin orchestrate it? yes. has other foreign entities been a part? yes. has the president said in the past, yes. he gotten criticized. president of the united states did make things harder on himself insisting on one-on-one meeting with vladmir putin behind closed doors. now we don't have any idea what happened and all his critics have a reason to sound off and sit there on the microphone, say what else did the president promise behind closed doors. ainsley: kellyanne told us they would talk about what happened behind closed doors. think about president obama, what he whispered to vladmir putin. let me fet through this

1200 jobs as the city loses business. ainsley. ainsley: thanks so much, jillian. 58 people were killed, hundreds would youd in that horrific shooting in las vegas outside the mandalay bay hotel in october. now the mgm resorts international which owns the hotel is suing hundreds of victims claiming it has no liability of any kind to survivors or families of slain victims under a federal law enacted after the known 11 terror attacks. here to explain this is fox news legal analyst bob massi. he is also the host of property man on fbn. good morning, bob, thanks for being with us. >> thank you, ainsley. ainsley: will you briefly explain how the federal law was created after 9/11 and why? >> well basically it was created for purposes shielding certain people, certain companies, if they reached certain type of criteria from liability. for example, in this case what the mgm is saying that they have filed an action in federal court, ainsley, filed declaratory relief action, asking the court to declare the
5:46 am
rights of the party. they are saying since they hired a security company that was then certified and cleared by homeland security, that the mgm themselves have no liability as a result of this law. and the federal court will have to make that determination. ainsley: so they're saying they followed the law, they hired security. therefore no one can sue them and they're countersuing all these individuals? the problem they covered up so much, or many people feel like they did and we didn't get answers immediately. so it seems a little fishy. is this the first real test of this law? >> from the research that i have done, of course people at fox for me have done, yes, this is the first time it has ever been tested. the question is going to be, if in fact the mgm would win, then that means these claims exclusively will be in federal court. that is why what is going to happen here, the plaintiffs will in fact, excuse me, the defendants in fact will countersue back because they want to keep it out of federal court because federal court is a
5:47 am
whole different world. those lawyers that represent the plaintiffs, robert eglet in las vegas, who is a terrific lawyer, says this law doesn't even apply under these circumstances. >> this is from m gm they said the federal court is appropriate venue for these cases an provides those affected withstudent for timely resolution. they want it to go to federal court. >> they do. ainsley: a lot of people were watching, we were all wondering why the hotel allowed the guy to keep going in back in and back out with all the equipment and never was caught. it is a casino. aren't they looking at monitors constantly? >> that is one of issues. let's like four or five days before this terrible act. this man brought in 20 suitcases, used service elevators, was doing things up in the area that the mgm never paid attention to. that is one of the arguments. the other thing, briefly looking at this act, it is very long, one of the arguments that the plaintiffs are going to make, this act has never been termed a
5:48 am
terrorist act. and as a result of that, it doesn't fall within the definitions or guidelines of the safety law. but believe me when i tell you these plaintiffs lawyers are going to fight vigorously to defeat this, they don't want it in federal court. they don't believe this law applies under the circumstances. >> bob, what about victims rand their families, will they receive compensation after the tragedy? >> at some point they will of course. there will be a payout at some point on this horrible tragedy from wrongful death actions, to the people still having medical problems. the community actually is it outraged by it because they feel that the mgm is going the other direction and not protecting people. the mgm actually said we're doing it, not to put the victims through long litigation. look their lawyers have the right to do what they need to do to advocate from their client, from a prer speculative in las vegas and throughout the country, it surely does not look
