to the heroes. see if the president goes off script to talk about the russia investigation. he's had plenty to say on twitter after report in the "new york times" the white house counsel, not his counsel, represents the presidency, don mcgahn cooperated with the special counsel robert mueller's team. president trump claims don mcgahn spent 30 hours with investigators, "only with my approval for purposes of transparenciy," the president's lawyers, it is reported, the presidency's lawyers was one thing, his own lawyers don't know how much mcgahn told mueller. according to the times, mcgahn's decision to speak to special counsel was part of the strategy to protect himself from the president. mcgahn made the call after he came to believe that president trump was setting him up to take a fall for any crimes the investigation might uncover.

12:02 pm
chief white house correspondent john roberts live on the north lawn. hey, john. >> good afternoon. taking far more direct aim at robert mueller than he has in the past, mostly criticism of the mueller investigation, but now the president holding nothing back about mueller himself. the president tweeting this morning, "disgraced and discredited bob mueller and his group of angry democrat thugs spent 30 hours with the white house counsel, with my approval, misspelling there, anyone needs that much time is just someone looking for trouble. they are enjoying ruining people's lives and refuse to look at corruption on the democrat's side. the lies, firing, deleted e-mails and much more. dems are looking to impact the election, they are a "national disgrace," and flurry of tweets today and over the weekend in response to stories about mcgahn speaking to mueller accident fox news confirmed mcgahn did sit
12:03 pm
down for interviews with mueller on three occasions, totaled up the number there, shep. the president's attorney, dowd and cobb, worried mueller might want to subpoena everyone in the white house because mcgahn had initially been unreceptive for inquiries from mueller to speak with him. the president told mcgahn to cooperate with the special counsel office. dowd, the lead outside attorney at the time spoke with mcgahn's attorney william burke, telling fox news on saturday don mcgahn was a strong witness for the president. the lead attorney, rudy giuliani, says they don't know everything that mcgahn told mueller, they do not think he said anything incriminating. listen here. >> we have a good sense obviously of what mr. mcgahn testified to. i think that through john john dowd good sense and john dowd yesterday said, i'll use his
12:04 pm
word, rather than mine, mcgahn was a strong witness for the president. i don't need to know much more about that. >> a lot of speculation why this is coming out now, don't forget negotiations continue between the president's attorney and robert mueller about possibility of an interview with the president. did something arise from the conversations that mueller had with mcgahn that he now wants to speak with the president in person about? it is widely believed, shep, mcgahn will leave his position as white house counsel after the brett kavanaugh confirmation is complete. that might have something to do with it, as well. >> john, webster's defines as body of real things, events and facts and the state of being the case. it's truth. it's knowable, often demon strabable, sometimes elusive, but truth is truth, except that phrase lives inside alternative facts in a new place unique to the current environment. >> i will not be rushed into having him testify so he gets
12:05 pm
trapped into perjury, when you tell me, that, you know, he should testify, because he will tell the truth and shouldn't worry, that is silly, it is somebody's version of the truth, not the truth. he didn't have a conversation -- >> truth is truth, i don't mean to go. >> no, truth isn't truth. >> rudy giuliani, the president's personal lawyer, back to john roberts at the white house. there has been an attempt at tidying of the moment. >> there has, a lot of people, shep, have likened that to kellyanne conway white house chief counselor said when she talked about alternative facts. rudy giuliani tried to explain further what he meant in a tweet this morning saying, "my statement was not pontification on theology, but referring to situation where two people make contradictory statement, he said/she said, sometimes further inquiry reveals truth and other time its doesn't," and schiff,
12:06 pm
quoted orwell saying "today giuliani added to orwell's litter gee, war is peace, slavery is freedom, ignorance is strength and truth isn't truth. adam schiff criticizing the president is surprising as the sun coming up, this did raise the literary bar far more area shep, than most of what we see on twitter these days. >> shepard: truth is truth there. john roberts, thank you. we have that going on at the white house. we are learning more about the president's former personal lawyer and fixer and his bank fraud investigation. the "new york times" now reports the feds are looking into some $20 million in loans to michael cohen's family taxi business and whether michael cohen represented his own finances or misrepresented them to get those loans. senior correspondent rick leventhal is there with this, $20 million. >> if you have ridden in a new
12:07 pm
york city cab, you might have noticed the medallions. michael cohen owned many medallions, could be key to the government's case cht the feds are focused on 32 -- i'm sorry, $20 million in loans cohen received from two banks using the medallions valued at a million each. the time suggests prosecutors are closely examining how cohen reported that income and could use it against him in the tax fraud investigation or to coerce testimony in exchange for leniency. we have known michael cohen was under investigation since april when federal authorities raided his home, office and hotel room connected to the mueller probe. michael cohen was the president's lawyer for years, even saying he would take a bullet, suggesting his own family and country would come first. we reached out to michael cohen's attorney, who would tell us he can't comment since the matter is under investigation
12:08 pm
and wouldn't respond to anonymous people who call themselves investigators, who hide behind anonymity. the times reports, by the way, the charges could come before the end of the month or maybe not until after the mid-term election. >> shepard: times reporting on another witness. >> man used to call the taxi king of new york, who could have gone to jail for fraud, cut a deal with state and federal prosecutors to be key witness and cooperate in this particular case. his name is friedman, lawyer in the taxi industry, but was disgraced and disbarred this year after judge found he transferred $60 million into offshore trusts to avoid paying debt. friedman managed cohen's taxi medallions for seven years, according to the times and could offer insight into what cohen did with monthly payments friedman gave him between 2012 and 2018. his lawyer says he and friedman would not comment and no one wants to comment, but certainly
12:09 pm
things seem to be moving. >> shepard: moving quickly. did you ever have shoes without shoe string? >> i have some on now. >> shepard: i noticed that, that is how i was told to wear them. you can put strings in if you want to, but i don't want to. >> shepard: we'll get a go fund me together for you. >> i don't need that. >> shepard: that is comforting. all right, nice to see you on monday. >> you, too, sir. >> shepard: former trump campaign chairman, paul manafort waiting to learn his fate. the jury deliberating for a third day and defense lawyers consider that to be a good sign. plus, we're waiting for the president to speak at an immigration event at the white house, running a few minutes behind schedule. we'll have it live when it happens on this monday afternoon.

12:11 pm
12:12 pm
>> shepard: jurors are deliberating the fate of president trump's former campaign chairman paul manafort,s whether they convict him or acquit him, his legal troubles will continue because this is but the first of two cases. manafort faces another trial next month in d.c., on charges that include lying to the feds, money laundering, conspiracy against the united states and witness tampering. the special counsel, robert mueller's, team says they have a lot more evidence against manafort in that trial. this current event deals with bank fraud and tax evasion, connected to lobbying work he did for a pro-russia political
12:13 pm
party in ukraine. prosecutors with special counsel robert mueller say manafort run a multi million dollar scheme to cheat the u.s. government. the defense argues manafort left many details of his finances to other people. manafort has pleaded not guilty to all charges. peter has been covering the trial and deliberations and he's in virginia at the courthouse just outside d.c. hey, peter. >> shep, jurors are pouring over 400 exhibits that were randomly numbered by the government, which means that it is up to the jury to go through and match up documents to the corresponding criminal charges and that is because the mueller team never explained during closing arguments how they're supposed to fit together and the judge denied a request by the jury to give them an index. the jury has not had any questions for the judge, which is a first on this third day of deliberations and the longer the deliberations go, the better the manafort defense team thinks their chances are of favorable
12:14 pm
result. source close to the manafort defense told me they think as soon as it was clear the deliberations would not move quickly and result in an immediate conviction in the proceedings started to take on the field of final days of the 2016 campaign, where the one thing that a lot of experts thought was going to happen, did not. right now the manafort team is sitting off site with mrs. manafort and the defendant, paul manafort is in solitary confinement in the courthouse right now. shep. >> shepard: what is the word on the identities of the jurors? the judge ordered that sealed, will it remain that way? >> it is going to remain that way, shep, the judge said again today, the names of the jurors will remain under seal. all six men and all six women on the jury came back this morning without incident and that is even though last weekended with the judge expresses concern about safety and future jurors bailing out on high profile case fist they knew their identities would be public at some point,
12:15 pm
which a handful of news organizations, including "new york times," ap, cnn, filed a motion to make happen before this trial reaches a conclusion. shep. >> shepard: peter, more on the manafort trial in a moment, also report the white house counsel has been cooperative in the russia investigation. we'll talk to an attorney, who say lawyers advising president trump make serious errors. the president is about to speak at the white house, the program has begun, the producers on scene tell us we have a few minutes before the president will speak. we'll get in a quick commercial break, that is coming up on fox news.

12:19 pm
we're led to believe, on immigration and customs, the white house passing along some information about this salute to the heroes of the immigration and customs enforce sxment customs and border protection event. host ice officers, cbp agents, members of congress, state and local elected officials in the room. kids in the front row, as well, for a panel discussion on the life-saveing and law enforcement mission of the nations customs and border patrol agents and ice officers. after this panel discussion, happened in the last hour and a half or so, the president will deliver remarks honoring individuals who are doing work there on the border. vice president pence introducing the president and the president we're told to speak about 20 to 25 minutes, many questions about whether he will bring up other matters that are close at hand at the white house and this customs and border patrol speech and honoring of this bunch comes
12:20 pm
as 565 immigrant children are still separated from their parents because the president signed an executive order to stop splitting the families at the border, but the feds are still trying to reunite families and kids they already separated. again, the separation happened not due to law, but a policy which this administration instituted and in a sense rolled back to some degree, be that as it may, the celebration of those who toll the border and work in customs and border protection, will begin in just a moment. while we wait for the president to speak, we'll return to our top story and the latest headlines in the russia investigation. the jury debating former trump campaign chairman paul manafort's fate for a third day today and counsel don mcgahn talking to robert mueller's team for more than 30 hours, that is according to the "new york times." mcgahn gave prosecutors extensive inside information because he was worried that the
12:21 pm
president was setting him up to take the fall. john is here, former federal prosecutor himself. important to remember, john, thank you, the distinction. don mcgahn doesn't work for president trump, mcgahn represents the presidency as an institution. >> that is true, but some courts have held here in new york there might be an attorney/client privilege with respect to mr. mcgahn and mr. trump, that was never raised by donald trump's defense team, which is incredible. they could have come in and said, you can't talk to mcgahn because of the attorney/client privilege because of the president and white house counsel. the other thing they didn't do, sit in with the interviews, i find shocking. basically mueller snookered them. >> shepard: they agreed to cooperate, fully cooperate, be transparent, the president says he didn't do anything right. >> that is right, mueller assured them it might be over quickly. they were saying a year ago it
12:22 pm
would be over by thanksgiving and it is still going on. i think the president's team made fundamental error by not -- >> shepard: pardon the interruption, the president is speaking, maybe this will come up, we shall see. let's listen in.

crime, people that don't mind crime. they mind when it happens to them, they don't mind when they watch it on television, have waged unprecedented assault on american law enforcement, our greatest people, threatening ice and border patrol for performing their duties admirably and for defending our country from horrible people and horrible, horrible events and crimes. in major cities across the nation, these open border radicals have blocked access to ice buildings, to face public property and threatened public safety. and what you hear in the newspapers and on the news is nothing compared to the way it really is. and we're stopping it very, very strongly. but, you have to go through what you are going through and few have to be having to be demeaned by people that have no idea what

12:40 pm
campaign to abolish ice, in other words, they want to abolish america's borders. and when you think about it, i'm working on it all the time, they come in, we're protecting borders of other countries, but we don't protect our own bord s borders, how about that. >> shepard: president honoring border and protection folks. this will go on for a few minutes, we'll return with the rest of the news, including the story of the man who has apparently murdered his entire family and now a woman who knows them is speaking out about her questions about that man prior to these brutal murders. the details in a live report coming next on fox news. oh! oh! ♪ ozempic®! ♪ (vo) people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than seven
