getting some of our war dead back from the korean war. people thought it was not going to be possible but it is happening and would not have happened without his leadership, chuck carlson served in the korean war and is watching tonight. we always honor our troops, think of you every day, thank you for your service to this country. shannon is up next. shannon: we begin with a fox news alert, the president says we can expect terrific economic numbers while rallying the newly reopened skill plant hours ago but his personal attorney has another bombshell tonight and the administration says it has reunited all eligible immigrant families separated at the border but that is not enough for activists. former acting director of ice live with reaction including what is next. rosanne barr did her first tv interview with sean hannity since she was fired, she doesn't hold anything back. welcome to fox news at night.
speaking at a newly reopened, donald trump touted the administration victory on economic growth predicting tomorrow's numbers on gdp will be, quote, terrific. also terrific, kevin is here with details, good to see you. >> this will be such an exciting day, whether you have been watching the market, twitter, the white house, the fed, the latest gdp numbers for the second quarter, a big morning so the right here at fox news, don't touch the dial. very strong speculation that the numbers will be fantastic, but how good is anybody's guess. speaking to steelworkers in illinois he made no secret of his optimism on the economy and for good reason. >> gdp numbers will be announced tomorrow. i don't know what they are but i
think they are going to be terrific, great things have happened, whatever the numbers are, somebody predicted today 5.3. i don't think that is going to happen. it has a four in front of it we are happy. if it has a 3 but it is 3.8, 3.9, 3.7, we are okay. >> that number may be why the market showed off that selloff today but we won't know how good until the gdp numbers are released tomorrow. the other big topic, trade, donald trump calling tariff concerns on iowa farmers who collectively a third of the soybeans they produce. >> we opened up europe and that will be a great thing for europe and a really great thing for us and the farmers because you have
gotten yourself big market because you had a problem. >> music to the ears of concerned business producers. >> what is the white house saying about the rush to reunify hundreds if not thousands who have been separated at the border. >> the homeland security deployment absent the watchdog that we are going to review the separation and reunification of families which is ongoing tonight along with conditions of border protection where migrant children who are here illegally are held in response to scores of congressional requests, that is the backdrop ahead of tonight's effort to reunify those right here illegally or came here illegally on their own. the government says it did reunite more than 1800 children with parents and sponsors. that is by the judge imposed deadline but it is a complicated process, determining who is
related to whom, who was brought here by nonrelative that who among those seeking asylum could reasonably place with family members or others already here in the country and so on. i want to share one more thing, an important meeting at the white house on election security, the president will convene principles from the national security council to review methods to make sure we all understand the safety and security of the electoral system is paramount and that should make for an interesting afternoon. >> that should have bipartisan support. brand-new tonight from donald trump's former personal attorney, michael cohen, reportedly claiming then candidate trump knew in advance the russians wanted to offer dirt on his rival hillary clinton and approving the meeting between his son and the kremlin connected lawyer, he is willing to assert that knowledge with robert mueller.
but he doesn't have corroborating proof like an audio tape, donald trump's attorney rudy giuliani is pushing back tonight. >> i expected something like this all week. the question is not what happened in the room but what did the president know and when did he know it. there had to be people in the room that can corroborate cohen and then it becomes a credibility contest between two or three witnesses who say one thing and cohen who says another. >> they testified about the meeting with congressional investigators and resources cohen did not tell them at the time that candidate trump had advanced knowledge of the trump tower meeting. the trump organization cfo mentioned he has been testified to call before grand jury. families who came to the us illegally are being reunited but democrats still calling for the abolition of ice, republicans
are running ads like this. >> we have to critically examine ice. >> starting by replacing ice. >> get rid of it, start over. >> we need to abolish ice. >> former acting director of immigration thomas homan is here to break it down. i want to start with your reaction, new calls you have been hearing for weeks. >> congressional members want to abolish a law enforcement agency for enforcing laws they and acted. they find -- a federal law enforcement agency but abolishing ice means open borders. once you abolish ice if you get by the border you are home free. no one is looking for you.
if you get arrested and the judge orders you removed you are home free. finishing ice is what they want, that is what their dream is, open borders. shannon: to discover for out and out saying that? >> absolutely. i hope americans are paying attention. and what they all thought they want open borders, whoever they want to come in. shannon: it with a court deadline by the administration to make sure children were reunited with family members, coming through the border illegally. the government says they have gotten it done. 1820, total number of children discharged from the office of refugee resettlement, 1400, reunifying parents in custody under the government plan, they
are in custody, either are not eligible for reunification or not available for discharge at this time. we are thrilled for families who are reunited but many more remain separated. the trump administration is trying to sweep them under the rug by unilaterally picking and choosing who is eligible for reunification. >> the aclu will say that. 10,000 children in the custody of health and human services, a criminal organization, parents chose to separate themselves in the hands of smugglers in the back of a tractor-trailer to be smuggled to the united states, no one is talking about those 10,000. they talk about 2500. looking at those numbers the government did but they should have done. every child eligible to be
reunited. i know for a fact the reunification's in the court's criteria. and they chose to leave the united states because they got the child here to the united states and hhs, they work hard, arbitrary deadline based on metrics and how agencies operate and one thing i will mention, and freedom reunification, under the smaller group, and the dna,
i got to wonder how many children could be traffickers. that will blow up in people's faces. shannon: the department is the same, in ice custody seeking to be reunited who have not been reunited by the end of the day is 0. thank you for being with us tonight. good to see you. this is a fox news alert, the trump administration is allotting it is a significant first step in ongoing negotiations with north korea. a us military cargo plane took off containing the remains of us service members killed twee 7 decades ago, remains of soldiers killed during the korean war have been a source of contention for successive administrations and breaking news they are coming home bringing closure for hundreds of anxious american families.
this from mike pompeo, chairman kim jong un is fulfilling part of the commitment he made to the president to return our farm american servicemembers. we are encouraged by north korea's actions and the momentum for positive change. >> a us official, the 5 us servicemembers missing in north korea since the korean war friday. at the 65th anniversary the armistice that ended the fighting. and cases that have been handed over at the dnc last month and the catalog transferred to hawaii, the final dna and a major commitment by kim jong un at the summit with donald trump in singapore. 5300 us servicemembers to return
them in 2005. this could be another confidence building measure by north korea towards denuclearization. analysts had satellite photos that north korea was dismantling at a missile test site. secretary of state mike pompeo to north korea as pressure increases on the trump administration to deliver the goods from that summit. shannon: congressman jim jordan, republican from ohio wants to be the next speaker of the house, shortly after introducing articles of impeachment against deputy attorney general. paul ryan opposes. jordan's challenge and his chances of succeeding. >> reporter: by sending a letter to house republicans ohio congressman jim jordan
officially became the first republican to challenge kevin mccarthy to become the next speaker of the house, the current speaker, paul ryan, has endorsed him which did not bother congressman jordan who wrote in part should be american people and trust us in the 116th congress? i plan to run for speaker of the house to bring real change to the house of representatives? jordan's effort at succeeding paul ryan comes in with the most to modulus time in his 12 your congressional career. former wrestlers in ohio state when jordan was approached in 90s he was aware of but failed to respond to allegations of sexual misconduct by a team doctor. jordan denied allegations. and investigators interviewed congressman jordan. and most republicans do not believe jordan has the necessary votes needed to be the next speaker but he may have enough
votes to block anyone else from becoming speaker. the house oversight and government reform committee led by jim jordan and congressman mark meadows moved to file articles of impeachment against deputy attorney general rod rosenstein accusing him of obstructing demands connected to robert mueller's investigation and other fbi records. here is what he told laura ingram. >> not giving us information we are entitled to do and importantly the american people are sick of it. >> paul ryan put himself at odds with hardliners in his party by rejecting the effort to impeach rosenstein. speaker ryan says the department of justice was complying with demands for documents. >> i don't think we should be
cavalier, this does not rise to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors, that is really high standard. >> reporter: experts say ryan won't be able to hold off house conservatives forever, to bring the story will circle, and the attorney general is in part not to diapered attention from jim jordan's entanglements with a sex abuse case at ohio state. shannon: thank you very much. rosanne barr holding nothing back during an interview with sean hannity. first tv interview since abc fired her over a racist tweet aimed at valerie jarrett. >> reporter: i have always been against abuse of power towards all marginalized people but now i feel both the left and right have marginalized the middle and it is too crazy.
america is a place where i, a loudmouth, old gorgeous jewish woman comedian, m allowed freedom of speech. it cost me everything. now i wish i had worded it better, but i won't let them tell me what i meant and that makes me so mad. let's discuss this. don't assume you know what i meant. i think you don't know what i meant and i would like to make it clear to you what i did mean and i would like to find a way past all that, to discuss the issue at hand and to try to find common ground. i am sorry you thought i was racist and that my tweet was racist and for that i apologize. i never meant to hurt anybody. or say anything negative about an entire race of people.
>> editor of the halftime report, i remember you were a voice of caution about rosanne when people were encouraged that her show was giving them a voice or recognition for those who supported and wanted to see that portrayed in middle america but you cautioned people. >> i cautioned people generally when it comes to politics. you don't need to write every unicorn that comes running down the street, you see the story about the zoo in egypt where they painted black stripes on a donkey. shannon: what happens when it rains? >> it is okay and you don't need to embrace everything was a president of the united states embraced her routine, she made her celebrity by being shocking and nasty and the fraud and the scorpion.
you cannot blame me for being who i am. it is my nature. her nature is to offend, to be shocking, that is how she got where she is. you shouldn't expect that she was going to be any different because she had a presidential tweet behind her. >> did you think jim jordan was going to announce in a lengthy letter about all the things, he would like to run for speaker. for his letter he said donald trump is taken bold action on behalf of of the american people, and we can change that, time to do what we said. >> every music man down the path, i am going to do it. when kevin mccarthy was running, paul ryan too was essentially -- dragged by the lower lip into
the speakership because he is the only one who can cross the caucus. what jim jordan, wasn't even the all freedom caucus. and the majority of republicans, not only is the speaker not supporting it but the senate intelligence committee and the whole tree they are barking up to say this is the wrong tree, you're going the wrong place on this. a lot of voices are opposed to what they are seeking as relates to rosenstein. to lunch the impeachment proceeding, i give them the benefit of the doubt, jim jordan, this may have been beyond his control, this is pure coincidence but to launch the impeachment proceeding on the same day you announce your candidacy for speaker, i am with willing to believe it would taint both in the eyes of many
members. are you insincere about this, is that in the service of this. and the smarter course of action would not tangle up, jim jordan's chances will not wait between now and his candidacy. >> that is the work ahead. many republicans reacting to the saying we don't want to weigh in on this. >> this is why we can't have nice things. shannon: still looking for unicorns to ride down the street as well. from top diplomat to -- tough talk for turkey. sanctions are coming if they did not release an american pastor,
turkey is accusing him of being a spy. >> i have a message for president erdogan in the turkish government, i have a message on behalf of the president of the united states of america, release pastor andrew brunson now or be prepared to face the consequences. shannon: a charge that the new york times is targeting brett kavanaugh's emails, a controversial information about the supreme court nominee. stick around. not in time. hey, no big deal. you've got a good record and liberty mutual won't hold a grudge by raising your rates over one mistake. you hear that, karen? liberty mutual doesn't hold grudges... how mature of them. for drivers with accident forgiveness liberty mutual won't raise their rates because of their first accident. liberty mutual insurance. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty ♪ to and practice... kidlots of practice.tion.

xfinity xfi, simple, easy, awesome. >> fox news alert from america's news headquarters, a massive wildfire in northern california has turned deadly. a bulldozer operator has been killed, three firefighters injured, also reports of people living in the area suffering burns while fleeing the fast-moving flames. the extent of their injuries remain unknown. the fire is burning a city of 92,000 people, we 7 homes and buildings including a historic schoolhouse have been destroyed. a spokesman says the so-called car fire is taking everything
down in its path. the highway patrol is urged if they see heavy smoke or flames but to wait for evacuation calls, the 45 square-mile fire tripled in size overnight thursday. it is only 6% contained, high temperatures, low humidity and windy conditions making it hard for firefighters to maintain the upper hand. stay tuned for more on this developing story, now back to regular programming already in progress. >> justice roberts. and -- shannon: going after spouses emails, those are very specific topics they are looking at. >> ever hard time believing the new york times or just a soda mayor. they said specific things. you see gay, the word guns, these are words with political
condensation, the word constitution and that is what you should be looking at. this is politically charged. you talk about politics. shannon: justice kagan has spoken to this, she is quoted as saying in a comment to university of chicago students, that we are junior varsity politicians. that is not the way we think of ourselves. we disagree in ways you can predict, a president appointed us, we are long past the days we think of justice kennedy, that he was approved 97-0. no opposition and now there seems to be a partisan vote, what the founders intended.
>> hearing ruth bader ginsburg make a similar point that ends up voting a certain way, we have swing voters and you come together to honor the constitution however you interpret it. that falls in different ways. and justice scalia. and they went through all obama era documents, republicans were fine and there is resistance to going through brett kavanaugh's bush era document. there is a double standard here. democrats are only asking for what republicans asked for in the past, that is unfair. shannon: what i am hearing, alana kagan had no trail from
the bench, she was never a judge. there was little to go through. she was a solicitor general under the obama administration so there was a bit of a trail. you have to turn over whatever is relevant but a bigger document pool, 1 million pages on brett kavanaugh. and it is a delay tactic. >> brett kavanaugh has a long history, that is what matters, not his personal opinion but long history of judicial opinions and what is interesting, same democrats requesting these documents are the same democrats in some cases refusing to meet with brett kavanaugh. if you're getting to know this nominee, sit down and have a face-to-face. i have a lot of respect for justice kagan, talking about the politicization of the nomination process, you see liberal law
professors praising brett kavanaugh. you see this disconnect between the academic left praising this nominee in the political left with their scare tactics, democrats like nancy pelosi and others. shannon: thank you for weighing in. will the tough talk get us pastor andrew brunson home, that story next. no special effect here, this is the real thing and happened in china, details on this next john where in the world. that's why pantene, the world's #1 conditioner brand, has conditioners for every hair type. from air-light foam for fine hair, to nourishing 3 minute miracle for thick and curly. and the moisture-infusing gold series collection. giving more women great hair days - every day. pantene. world's number one... conditioner brand.

until they have the attention of citizens including andrew brunson. >> president erdogan and the turkish government, i have a message. >> reporter: a 3 day conference on religious freedom with a warning. >> release pastor andrew brunson now or be prepared to face the consequences. if turkey does not take immediate action to release this innocent man of faith the united states will impose significant sanctions on turkey. >> reporter: donald from reiterating that on twitter adding he is suffering greatly, responding with a tweet of their own about an hour later. the turkish minister of foreign affairs said no one dictates turkey, we will never tolerate threats from anybody, the law is for everyone, no exceptions.
they arrested pastor brunson in 2016 on charges related to terrorism and espionage. he was released from prison in place on house arrest in turkey, took us officials said this was for health reasons. the ultimatum coming is fairly clear, but details are not. we have a deadline for when turkey needs to act. it is not clear how the president would move forward here whether it is unilateral action or something with lawmakers on capitol hill. when they removed him to house arrest they didn't say they saw that is a positive step. >> they are speaking on this issue of iran. >> it is a statement of concern about iran and religious freedom but that is not all that happened with iran. he is ready of donald trump follows through on the warnings in the controversial tweet he

shannon: before leaving for the august recess, a pay raise for military heroes and getting tough on russia and china, democrats are praising it. national security correspondent jennifer griffin breaks down what is in it. >> one thing before the august recess was $760 billion defense authorization. what is interesting about the bill is republicans and democrats agree the provisions targeting russia and china are large enough to send a strong message that the us military means business. >> there are dozens of provisions the deal with russia whether it is increasing credibility of the nuclear deterrent which russia has openly threatened to use in a conventional war but we also strengthen the global engagement center at the state department
which is charged with pushing back against propaganda from russia. >> some of the provisions may tie the hands of the president in the weight of the helsinki summit. adam smith praised the bill for, quote, pushing back on the ongoing campaign to undermine us alliances, partnerships and democratic values around the world. it prohibits military to military cooperation with russia, prohibits recognition of the absorption of crimea into the russian federation and increases the number of us troops in europe to reassure us partners and allies to deter russian aggression, a 2.6% pay raise for the largest increase in 9 years. >> this is a step to rebuilding the military. ships and land vehicles, weep a lot more money into readiness,
training, spare parts, repairs. >> the new aircraft carrier, two virginia class subs, and ballistic missiles and 77 fifth-generation stealth aircraft. all needed to counter russia. there is language prohibiting the federal government doing business with china's dpe which the president lifted sanctions on with trade negotiations which national security -- >> thank you very much. republican congressman from utah chris stewart voted for the bill today to work out differences between the house and senate version, he sits on the house intel committee. great to have you with us. this talks about all the things that are plugged into it in both
versions that are push back against russia and china. what is in there and why is that important right now? >> there are so many good things. i flew combat rescue helicopters and 157 fighters, 58. when i was in the military i had 350,000, almost 330,000 troops and vladimir putin looked at that and laughed. it is not a serious deterrent. european defense initiative is part of this bill, it is part of saying to russia we know what your intentions are, crimea, his threats toward other warsaw pact, we are going to take you seriously and you need to take us seriously and china, if you think national defense matters, this was a good bill.
>> how concerned are you about cyberattacks to bad actors and others? >> you can't look at the world around us and not be concerned about cyber and a lot of people inc. that means i don't get to shop for a valentine for a few hours. there is a potential to be disruptive. imagine losing our electrical grid for weeks. a refrigerator doesn't work, you can't pump gas, you're not going to work, hospital's emergency generators have run out of fuel. it would be an enormous the impactful thing for the country and it is possible from some of the nations you mentioned in iran and north korea to name a few others, cyber as many indicated is the modern warfare and you can't ignore the serious implications. >> as somebody who served their your self, how much -- we hear
the stories about basic necessities and things for their kids, none of us in america would ever think that is acceptable that these folks, should have those economic worries. >> this is what young people and nation produces. over the previous administration, there are many times it wasn't in september the way it should have been. it became political and these folks were used as ponds in that. is passing the defense authorization bill today is the earliest we have done it in the year. that is an important message to send to the military to these young men and women. we know you are there, we want to pay you adequately, we don't
want to use political ponds. they understand, they can see, i am sure they are grateful for it. shannon: 359-54, a lot of bipartisan support to get it done. any other major things being done after the recess. >> let us hope so. we can agree on that. in the past we haven't had such bipartisanship. there is a lot of intense effort. mentioning something quickly, not just russia but china, china can't destroy us unless we help them but we have been helping them, they have been stealing our technology, we have been giving them technology. there are elements in the intelligence committee, very intently to make it much harder for china to take this technology or for us to give it to them.
