tv Fox News Night With Shannon Bream FOX News August 16, 2018 12:00am-1:00am PDT
you can get macaroni straws to save the whales. there's a blackout at reagan airports. this happened last year in atlanta. nice infrastructure the united states has. glad we spent $7 trillion in the middle east and the iraqi war. we love hearing from you. and henry is filling in for shannon bream and the fox news at 19. hope you're not flying to dc. >> i'm work in dc now. have a great show. welcome to fox news at night. we begin tonight with this fox news alert. two major breaking stories we are following about some sharp critics of donald trump who are under fire themselves tonight. the president tweeting that andrew cuomo appears to be having a meltdown. the new york governor hoping a
likely reelection win this november could propel him to the shortlist for president in 2020 may see this white house ambitions implode for suggesting america is not so great. john brennan who made it his life mission to charge the current president is committing treason has abruptly lost his security clearance tonight at the washington elite howling in protest. we begin with trace gallagher, a rough night for one of the president's biggest critics. >> if you listen you can hear a beeping sound, the cuomo campaign trying to back this truck up. and the governor at a signing ceremony in new york where he tried to jab donald trump but instead he may have overreached a bit. >> the simple point comes down to this, we are not going to make america great again. it was never that great. >> reporter: before the laughing and gas the audience quieted down he tried to make a larger point about women's equality but
the comment had already caught fire on social media it wasn't long before spokesperson tried to tampa down saying the governor believes america great in her full greatness will be fully realized when every man, woman and child has full equality. sean spicer weighed in at 1:30 p.m. governor quarto says america was never that great and by 4:11 he changed his position to america is great. he changes his views quicker than omarosa but he has changed direction yet again, what you say would be great again would not be great at all. we will not go back to discrimination, segregation, sexism, isolationism, racism or the kkk. the republican challenging cuomo in the governor's race called on cuomo to apologize saying america has always been great and cuomo should be ashamed of
himself, the trump campaign said he showed his true pessimistic colors when he defend america as a country that was never that great. donald trump dared andrew cuomo to run for president even though donald trump claims cuomo pledge never to run against him. cuomo says trump's memory is faulty and you didn't have any personal or political conversations with the president and speaking of presidential candidates hillary clinton is back in the news praising and 11-year-old girl, a student in maryland who knelt during the pledge of allegiance, quote, it takes courage to exercise your right to protest injustice especially when you are 11, keep up the good work. the young girl says she was reprimanded by her teacher, baltimore county school says she was not punished. ed: let's go to jeff johnson who against heavy odds and a big
fundraising disadvantage, the former presidential contender in the primary battle as governor of minnesota. now the republican nominee for governor of minnesota live tonight to weigh in on the idea that america was never that great. what do you say to andrew cuomo. i notice eric trump tweeted out among other things we weren't great after we beat nazi germany? >> i haven't heard this quote until just now. illustrates the difference between many on the left and those of us on the right. most conservatives believe america is the greatest country in the world and always has been and always will be. we have had our ups and downs but we are closer to perfect than any other country has been. there are many progressives in
this country who don't believe that and think we should be more like european socialist countries. it is entertaining when progressives say what they really think which it looks like mister cuomo did. >> progressives on the left are more and more saying they are for socialism. that is the democratic party being pooled to the left. minnesota, trending democrat over the years but donald trump came close to winning last time. what is the state in your race and in general? >> i feel great about our race. i have been in this race for 15 months talking to tens of thousands of minnesotans and while minnesota is seen as a left of center state we are very much a center stage, minnesotans are very common sense, we care a lot about people but we want our money spent wisely and haven't been seeing that for the last eight years in the state. minnesotans are ready for a
change, donald trump came within a decade and a half which is closer than any presidential candidate has in decades and it is because minnesotans are ready for something different and in 2018 we will stay that on the state level. ed: what you may be up against and whether you will pull it out. among other things they say two years after a bombastic trump swept through the upper midwest democrats themselves with candidates -- a broader electorate than the party's progressive base. in the run up to the presidential election their victory serves as a reminder of the weight that establishment credentials carry in the midwest. democrats are trying to go in the midwest more mainstream than the socialist candidates elsewhere in the country but in the case of tim pawltney establishment candidates are not winning right now. >> it didn't work and the
republican primary and tim walsh, my democratic opponent is not mainstream. he has taken positions in the last couple months during the primary for single-payer healthcare, the march to abolish ice and said we should become a sanctuary state taxes in minnesota should go up, he seems to believe regulatory state is not strong enough and we need to exercise more control over individuals and companies, proud of his effort from the nra. ed: i talked -- donald trump endorsed you with a tweet but he was your third choice in the proper book in primaries, at one point you called him a jackass. would hard to get supporters to support you after that.
>> that comment in context i was asked by a reporter who i was voting for because i was chair of the rubio campaign and what i said, it came up that someone called him a jackass as my responses i'm given the choice between a jackass and a dishonest corrupt politician i will take the jackass. that was the context. we are all together. he endorsed me today. ed: appreciate your time tonight. now to another top store. former cia director and focal trump administration detractors john brennan's security clearances been revoked, democrats not happy but white house officials warned james comey and other top officials may be next. >> reporter: the word tonight in washington is unprecedented. it appears never before has a president revoked a former cia
director of security clearance for criticizing his administration. the white house is insinuating that john brennan's loose lips were a national security risk but the president decided to do this just one day after brennan criticized him on twitter for, quote, failing to hold up to minimum standards of decency and civility. >> mister brennan leveraged his status as a former high-ranking official with access to highly sensitive information, to make a series of unfounded and outrageous allegations on the internet and television about this administration. >> reporter: brennan was one of the most vocal critics of the president calling his behavior during the press conference with vladimir putin treasonous. tonight brennan says today's action is a page out of vladimir putin's playbook. >> i have seen this type of behavior and actions on the part of foreign tyrants and despots and autocrats for many years during my cia and national security career. i never thought i would see it
in the united states. >> this may only be the beginning, the white house says it is considering revoking security clearances from other prominent critics of the president like james comey the director of national intelligence james clapper, national security visor susan rice and former deputy attorney general sally yates. democratic senator mark warner. >> and erie memory of an enemies list. these people are being singled out to have security clearances revoked, smacks of nixonian type practices of trying to silence anyone willing to criticize this president. that puts us in uncharted territory. >> reporter: one person not on the white house list of people whose security clearances are
currently under review, michael flynn, the former national security advisor who pled guilty to lying to the fbi. >> democrats charging this of what an enemies list, the president's allies say brennan politicize the previously nonpartisan post of cia director to undermine the commander-in-chief. let's get reaction from mike baker and harry litman, former us attorney and deputy assistant attorney, thank you for joining me tonight. what do you make of this, in particular the fact that my experience in washington, democratic or republican administrations, you can have the former agriculture secretary of state might be more political but the cia director comes out and doesn't blast the new administration the way we have seen. >> you can have both things true at the same time meaning from one optic you can say it was like an enemies list from the white house.
at the same time you can say john brennan is completely politicized that position and is speaking out in an unprecedented fashion compared to all the past former directors. from my perspective getting into the machinations and bazaar back and forth between john brennan and donald trump, doesn't blow my skirt up. i would rather focus on a bigger issue, we can take this and make it good and that would be the clearance issue we have nationwide. there are over 4 million people right now between government and contractors, private business to security clearances and 1 million of those are top-secret clearances. i guarantee you not all of them need them. we have gotten to clearance gone wild situation where we need to take a step back. john brennan has every right to say what he wants to say
authority doesn't divulge classified information but he does not have a right to security clearance. that is a courtesy and in washington it is currency, a valued commodity. ed: the president has been frustrated by leaks of classified information and sensitive information, no evidence john brennan did that but others in the government clearly have, the president calls it the deep state and something john brennan said on twitter, it is not about classified information. it is astounding how often the president failed to live up to minimum standards of decency, civility, seems like you will never understand what it means to be president of what it takes to be a good, decent and honest person. so discerning, so dangerous for our nation. he has also accused the president without evidence of committing treason. >> is a very harsh critic no doubt about it. the question is what does that have to do with entitlement to national security and the basic
principle that national security is not supposed to be politicized? mike makes a good point about ways to correct the security problem but i don't think it is a small point for trump to use his power to essentially punish enemies and to be deceptive to the american people in implying this is about protection of national security. it wasn't. it was about redressing enemies. two separate problems and brennan critics are well taken in being suspicious of trump. ed: what do we think is coming next? people close to james comey suggest he hasn't kept security clearance anyway. >> i don't think that is the case. i wouldn't be surprised if mister clapper loses his, susan rice, i don't think she
maintains it, she might. this is a courtesy extended throughout administrations to people who leave senior posts. part of the argument has been the democrats are making, the trump administration is a danger to national security by taking security clearances and they won't be able to talk to others. that is a ridiculous argument. >> i went to wrap it up. what is a good reason for former officials to have clearance? >> in order to be able to jump into action if needed. that happened to me personally. it is a long process otherwise. and to have current consultations on things they know about. >> you bring in former officials to help. >> also to jump into the commercial sector. clearances are a valuable commodity. if you have them you are more higherable.
>> people making money off of that, some properly, some improperly. thank you for coming in. breaking news on alex jones next plus paul manafort's fate in the hands of the jury, nothing to do with russia collusion but might result in manafort going to prison for up to 305 years. for trump campaign chair's lawyer is trying to sound optimistic. >> mister manafort is very happy today. e wrinkles. and i don't add up the years. but what i do count on... is staying happy and healthy. so, i add protein, vitamins and minerals to my diet with boost®. new boost® high protein nutritional drink now has 33% more high-quality protein, along with 26 essential and minerals your body needs. all with guaranteed great taste. the upside- i'm just getting started. boost® high protein be up for life boost® high protein all around louisiana...

>> reporter: two parts related to the story. we have been talking about it for a while, first the political. for all the talk of a witchhunt in the special counsel that could bring down the presidency in this trial for tax fraud, russia was barely mentioned. experts say an acquittal in the first trial by robert mueller epstein could change everything for donald trump. prosecutors clearly knew the stakes in their closing arguments saying he lied to keep more money when he had it in line to get more money when he didn't. this is a case about his lies. that is the first quote. in addition they said he heads money and foreign bank accounts and later spent on his personal life and real estate. the defense of the jury should focus on the lies of his deputy, quote, the government was so desperate to convict mister manafort they made a deal with rick gates. how they were able to get the
deal i have no idea. 's lawyer on cross-examination, gates fell apart, addressing the jury the judge reminded them that the government must prove manafort's alleged crimes beyond reasonable doubt. the president's former campaign chairman listened intently in a navy suit and blue shirt, the charges against paul manafort have nothing to do with the trump campaign but rather his business dealings years before. 's defense team didn't call a single witness but hammered away at the government's case in the courtroom and the courthouse steps. >> mister manafort is happy with how things went, his defense team got to address the jury, point out the shortcomings in the government's case, they have not met the burden of proof. >> the jury starts deliberations at 9:30 a.m. voting on 18 subaccounts. the vote on each count for
conviction or acquittal must be unanimous. whatever the verdict it will have implications that reach beyond the virginia courtroom and regardless manafort faces another set of charges and another trial later. ed: first big test for robert mueller. appreciate the time tonight. the president's supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh took some time to meet with key democratic senators, voting may need to get conference, joe donnelly and heidi heitkamp are vulnerable democrats in states carried by the president in double digits, very few democrats have agreed to meet with brett cavanagh. donnelly and heitkamp, cavanagh huddled with senator joe manchin of west virginia, turkey doubling down on tariffs on us imports in retaliation for us sanctions, turkey is in the middle of a currency crisis, it centers on turkey's refusal to release andrew brinson.
richardson has the latest tonight. >> reporter: the us tricky relationship is deteriorating further. the united states and turkey trading tariff increases and american pastor andrew brinson is still under house arrest in turkey. >> we feel turkey and specifically president erdogan treated pastor brunson who we know to be a very good person and strong christian who has done to nothing wrong very unfairly, very badly. something we won't forget in the administration. >> reporter: turkish court denied an appeal to release brunson from house arrest. he can appeal that decision. mike pence tweeted andrew brinson is an innocent man held in turkey and demand he be released, turkey would do well not to test donald trump's results to see americans who are wrongfully imprisoned in foreign lands returned home to the united states, turkey accuses incentive espionage following a coup attempt and detained him for two years. >> translator: a digital process in turkey, must respect it with
the judiciary will determine steps. >> last week the trumpet ministration announced it would double tariffs on turkish steel and aluminum imports, turkey responded today announcing additional tariffs of 140% on american imports like rice, alcohol and appliances, this diplomatic and trade fight and inflation and massive indebtedness in turkey worried investors. this week its currency value against the dollar hit an all-time low. it's ally qatar help stabilize the turkish lira pledging $15 billion in direct investments. us officials say they made no real progress resolving the dispute with turkey, the state department says it anticipates future conversations with senior officials though none for now are scheduled. ed: this week marks one year since nafta renegotiation started. a trade deal with mexico could be very close. and lawrence has the story tonight from foxbusiness.
>> reporter: for the fourth consecutive week the mexican delegation met with us trade representatives to finalize nafta. for the first time in 20 weeks white house advisor jared kushner joined the negotiations, the delegation all smiles, even joking as they walked in. one issue expert say the us has to depend on is subtext laws that were not addressed last weekend one of the items tackled by the end of this week. the us wants nafta to end after five years but mexicans went reassessment of the numbers after five years. >> we have not yet discovered. we are working for the last four weeks and we are hoping we will see the end of the total. >> the new mexican president-elect would like a revised nafta deal for his first day in office but once a deal is done with mexico it will be presented to canada to sign on

of the defendants, she is concerned for her client's safety due to those threats and lockdowns yesterday at the courthouse. sarah bacchus has received a, quote, unprecedented number of threats according to the sheriff after clearing the way for unsecured bond for the group. our crew went to what is left of the compound, they found live rounds of ammunition and according to sheriff's official another agency has removed many of the items. he was here prosecutors said some of the children were given weapons training with plans to carry out some sort of attack. deputies from the remains of a young boy. we are awaiting forensic results of whether they are the 3 maxon of the suspects, investigators were told he died in a religious ritual at the compound and was denied medication for his epilepsy. the older wajaj will remain in
custody and transferred to federal immigration authorities. the other three can be released pending outcome on appeal. i'm told tonight by the owner for tracking services company a sponsor of those three has reached out about getting the required ankle bracelets for home arrest but as of tonight they remain in custody. >> the judge has a reputation based on news reports for going soft on violent criminals. the chair of the new mexico gop is here tonight and joins me live. good to have you. this is a horrifying case as you know better than i being on the grounds. why did the judge let them out on bail? >> amazing to me she has allowed them out on bail. we have a situation where we have a dead child, other
children that have been abused, malnourished living in third world conditions being trained to shoot up schools, shoot up government buildings and kill law enforcement officers. as back you mentioned the remains of at least one young boy was found in this compound in addition to the violence, one child is dead and you in this bail order the judge says among other things, quote, no evidence was presented to the court regarding the child's cause of death. the child may not have received medical attention. the court finds these allegations extremely disturbing but allegations without orange do not rise to the level of evidence that clearly convinces the court the defendants are danger to any other person or the community at large. how could any judge come up with that after a dead child is found and this child was obviously in their care and somehow we don't know cause of death so we will everybody out. >> it is nonsensical.
you have other children that have been abused, they were being trained to shoot other children and you have a circumstance where you have a compound that was filthy, they were living in inhumane conditions and this judge is saying there wasn't enough evidence, it makes no sense. new mexicans across the state are up in arms. ed: we don't want to speculate as to motives, reasons but is this about political correctness or tiptoeing around the issue of radical islamists? what do people on the ground believes is happening? >> irrespective of race, religion or gender the circumstances speak for themselves. we have a situation where we have a liberal judicial system in new mexico that has been
lenient on individuals, criminals. a case where a man was released, he got high on meth and beat a one-year-old child almost to death. another circumstance the lady was released, was involved in a drive-by shooting and the 21-year-old was murdered. this type of justice where it is a turnstile, people getting arrested, police officers, all the resources they need, make these arrests and we see these criminals back, street. ed: i have 30 seconds. it is horrifying. how did people find out about this? how do they go so long training these kids, the idea of training them for potential school shootings, so ridiculous. how do they train without people spotting them? >> very good question. i heard neighbors were hearing gunshots. they were out in a remote area
in rural new mexico and i'm so grateful they were found before there was a school shooting. ed: or more children there, one died, why the adults were left on bail we have been trying to get answers. thank you for trying to help us make sense of the senseless case. meanwhile an iraqi refugee is in custody. that tops the western roundup. the fbi arrested a man accused of being an isis terrorist when he called an iraqi police officer in 2014. officials say the suspect fled to sacramento, california and did not mention any ties to terror organizations, he is facing extradition and a trial in a rack where he would likely face death if found guilty. a desperate search is underway in colorado with the fbi joining state and local police. a mother and two young daughters. they went missing from their home in frederick 30 miles north

sit down and count on the staffers in your news organizations. ed: joining us, fox news contributor richard fowler and fox political analyst caldwell, good to see you. is this a numbers game or is it about the quality of individuals regardless of race, creed, religion in the trump white house or obama white house? >> i think both counts to be honest with you. one staffer is a friend of mine. i worked with him in politics for a long time, very qualified and doing great work moving the ball forward but shouldn't be the only one. from one report i saw earlier today, this is the first time in two decades they had a senior staffer in the white house. >> 50 years there hasn't been a senior staffer in the west wing,
it is about education and ideals but also having representation at the table that understands the issues plaguing 13% of society and the fact that she couldn't answer this question saying we have 3 staffers, two hispanic staffers that advise this president on issues of the day is problematic. ed: important to have diversity at the table but on your point about numbers you mentioned 13% of the nation's african-american. a study was done about newsrooms, the new york times 7% black, the wall street journal 5% black, washington post 14% black, boston globe 6% black. we need more representation across the board, fox news, new york times, everywhere but if you play the numbers game, people in the media might. >> the media is a big hypocrite.

this. while and all of us talking more about chicago. why didn't we put it in a rundown tonight beyond just this conversation. why are there not more nfl players speaking out about allegations of police brutality also talking about the fact that dozens of people get shot in chicago every weekend? >> we should be. it should be the top story of every newsroom. we should have national anchors reporting live from chicago to bring attention to the situation. the reason we are not talking about it is we don't have african-americans and latino folks who understand what is happening and it is happening in baltimore and detroit and miami and washington dc and on and on, because our representation isn't in the newsroom we are not able to make editorial decisions that affect how the stories are covered. ed: you are from chicago, you lost loved ones, people who talked about this emotionally on the air and elsewhere. what it needs to be done to deal with this in chicago? >> new leadership.
i called on donald trump to send the fbi and other law enforcement to additional federal resources to deal with the need of chicagoans and i'm thankful fox news allowed me to go to chicago and cover this issue and we have been talking about this on your for a long time. i'm appreciative of that but there's so much we have to do. rahm emanuel must go and something we can all agree on, donald trump said things in chicago are very bad and run emanuel's of donald trump is concerned about the russia investigation of the trial of one of his former senior advisers, this is not the person who cares about the citizens of chicago, more concerned about the politics at play versus the residents who are vulnerable. >> let's give richard the last point. rahm emanuel's unfortunate tweet. how do we get the leadership going? >> if you were to list the worst
mayors in the country rahm emanuel been are the top, he only cares about what is happening on the north side of the city. but run emanuel is not the only politician that has this problem. what we have seen from washington and what is happening in urban areas, washington could care less. the education system is collapsing, there are no jobs, no opportunities and if we want to solve the violence in chicago and baltimore we have to create opportunities, role models and that is not happening. ed: a quick point. >> in illinois, leading the charge. ed: appreciate it. up next, what is killing the wildlife off of florida's coast and is enough being done? spoiler alert, no. that's because your home is filled with soft surfaces that trap odors and release them back into the room. so, try febreze fabric refresher. febreze finds odors trapped in fabrics
