tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  September 7, 2018 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
the story guest hosted by my good friend harris faulkner starts right now, hi, harris. >> thank you very much. we will start off with a fox news alert. we were anticipating a letter from the state department official to be handed from kim jong un in north korea to our president. it has now just happened our own rich edson of fox news can confirm that part of what president trump talked about o. board air force one today has happened. the secretary of state pompeo has received a letter from kim jong un to give to president trump. remember, the course is still going forward after their meeting. that summit. denuclearization is the goal. and now a letter to the president from their chairman. we'll cover the news if this happens as more details pop on this. also, breaking right now. >> to deliver a simple message and that is that you need to vote because our
4:01 pm
democracy depends on it. >> harris: and in this breaking news, former president barack obama says he's back asserting himself back into the political arena and not holding back. what he really thinks about the state of our democracy and accusing donald trump by name. and the g.o.p. of fueling division and resentment in america. obama claims he has the answer to save us all. in prime time tonight i'm harris faulkner in for martha maccallum. former president obama delivered a fiery speech today at the university of illinois to kick off its return to the political arena ahead of the critical midterm election. and for the very first time in this manner, he called out the president by name. >> this is not normal. these are extraordinary times. they are dangerous times. i am here to tell you that even if you don't agree with me or democrats on policy. even if you believe in more libertarian economic news, even if you are an evangelical and our position
4:02 pm
on certain social issues is a bridge too far, even if you think my assessment of immigration is mistaken, i'm here to tell you that you should still be concerned with our current course. we are americans. we are supposed to stand up to bullies. >> harris: president trump also on the campaign trail today and had this to say about obama's attack. >> what do you think of president obama's speech and i said, i'm sorry, i watched it but i fell asleep. [laughter] i found is he very good, very good for sleeping. >> and around and around we go. trace gallagher always good to see. west coast newsroom fox top story. wow good to see you, harris. this appears to be a preview of what we can expect former president obama in the runup
4:03 pm
to the midterm elections. mr. obama plans to cover a lot of ground this week in california and next week in ohio. the plan is for the former president to go after what he believes is president trump's achilles heel, for example, his relationship with attorney general jeff sessions hot president criticized again this week for investigating g.o.p. congressman duncan hunter and chris collins ahead of the mid terms. watch. >> it should not be democratic or republican. it should not be a partisan issue to say that we do not pressure the attorney general or the fbi to use the criminal justice system as a cuddl cundle to criticize r political opponents. >> went on to criticize the treatment of the media saying the free press should not be threatened because they say things we do not like. watch again. >> i complained plenty about fox news. [laughter] but you never heard me threaten to shut them down.
4:04 pm
or call them enemies of the people. >> though the former president did indicate fox news was an enemy of democrats saying we have a, quote, destructive viewpoint and we're responsible for key democratic losses back in 2016. and mr. obama, who has mostly stayed silent on president trump appears to be now making up for some lost time. watch. we're supposed to stand up to discrimination and we're sure as heck supposed to stand up, clearly, and unequivocally to nazi sympathizers. how hard can that be? saying that nazis are bad. >> a clear reference to last year's attacks in charlottesville, virginia. though, in fairness, president trump did condemn nazi sympathizers though it took him 48 hours to do. so the current president thinks the former president is just having a sour grapes moment. >> i think trying to take credit. trying to take credit for this incredible thing that's happening to our country. >> and you will see that
4:05 pm
type of back and forth for about the next 8 weeks or so. harris. >> harris: all right. we're ready trace gallagher thank you very much. let's bring in now deneen borelli a host at and a fox news contributor and antjuan seawright a democratic strategist and former senior advisor to hillary clinton's presidential campaign great to see you both. you both are so shy let's jump in and see if you are listening. actually, antwon, i want to start with you, barack obama, former president, had a whole lot to say reaching across, i guess, the aisle. he called evangelicals out by name. are these the same who he said were reaching for their religion and guns? >> no. well, first of all, let me say to president obama and the other two we have in the democratic toolbox michelle obama thank you. and to the republicans i think today's speech means game on. it was refreshing to hear the leader like barack obama
4:06 pm
talk about what we experiencing in this day. he talked about issues. he talked about the rhetoric. he most importantly talked about how do we fast forward. and regardless if you are democratic or republican. most people agree that our democracy is on fire and we need political firefighters. >> harris: do you need some people that the people whom you don't agree with? that's mainly who this speech is for. he called out libertarians. he did morichiing across the aisle, perhaps, deneen than we have seen. he talked with evangelicals and didn't accuse them of anything he is not happy with the fact that his legacy is rebuked by president obama. you look at the failed iran deal. you -- yeah, let me finish, please. the failed iran deal, look at how he has high taxes and regulations that harmed hard-working americans. there is a long list of things that former president obama did that did not help
4:07 pm
americans, hard working americans. and so he will be coming out like this on a regular basis, criticizing the republican party and criticizing president trump. but you look at the economy, americans are happy, excuse me. >> harris: americans are happy and not to put too fine a point on it. people who are in those categories of diversity are seeing the lowest points of unemployment that rate at least in decades, antwon? >> i think the president addressed it very well in his speech that the fact that the economy is doing well is because he was the reason. >> harris: did he say that yes. >> we see now. and he addressed it and truth be told we take at numbers, take the emotional numbers out of it compared to what he inherited from the republican president before him, so what he had to do to get our economy back on track, i think the proof is in the pudding. larger than that, i think this says a lot, his speech today spoke to the hearts and the minds of independent
4:08 pm
thinkers in this country, because, whether you are democrat, republican, black or white, california or south carolina, most people agree that we are starting to unravel at our core in this country and it's a scary place as we move forward. >> harris: most people would agree we are more divided than ever. and the president interestingly, the former president said today that it didn't begin with president trump. and he is right about that. that division has been around for a while. let's talk about the politics of it though. we are about to see these two men go -- remember when president trump said six, seven days on the campaign trail. i can't imagine what the secret service is thinking in that moment. now you have former president barack obama saying is he going continue to setter himself. deneen, how does that work out a former president lost 1,000 national house and state seats. >> that is a problem. the democratic party has a number of problems. there are big divisions because you have the activists, the liberals who
4:09 pm
wanted to bring in socialism. they are further to the left. and then you have the establishment democrats who don't want to go that far to the left. so, their message is split. and not only that you have people like maxine waters, for example, who was calling for folks to get in the faces of trump administration personnel to go after them at their restaurants and gas station. there are a nun of issues that the democratic party is facing. they are not talking about policy that will help hard-working americans. none of them -- >> -- that's not true. >> none of them supported the tax cuts. we are seeing the tax cuts of the tax cuts. rolled back the regulations. wages are going up. people are getting bonuses. more jobs in manufacturing. there are over 400,000 jobs since president trump became president. so, we're looking at a good economy that is clipping along and that is something that americans are concerned about. >> harris: so antwon, without stepping on progress, how do you come bought with a positive
4:10 pm
message, if you will, about the economy that is about change? i mean, what do you think people really want to hear about change and keep it positive? >> let me say a few things, one, barack obama and his wife michelle are the great union fires and great equalizers for the democratic party. in order for democrats to be successful in november it's going to take a united front on the democratic party. i believe those two are the two people that can bring the many factions of our party together. number two, your guest failed to mention the policy prescriptions that democrats are putting forth up and down the ballot in elections all across this country and that's why we won over 40-some odd legislative seats where president trump won in 2016. that's why conor lamb is the congressman from pennsylvania a district that trump won by 20 points. that's why doug jones is a u.s. senator from alabama. when you talk about healthcare and talk about the economy and environment, when you talk about simple things that make sense to the heart beats of the american soul, democrats are campaigning on those things.
4:11 pm
>> harris: antjuan seawright thank you very much. deneen borelli i leave you with this. it's fascinating the current president getting out to help people and get the job done as presidents are often called to do. your party, antwon is looking back to a president who hasn't been in office. what does the future hold? we'll talk next time you are on. thank you. >> thank you. >> harris: up next, president trump calls on jeff sessions to investigate who is behind that explosive unnamed source op-ed. saying it's a matter of national security that we find out. james fitzgerald, the former fbi linguist who helped find the union bomber through his manifestos, he sees some clues in the writing. wave to us, if you can, because you are up next. hey. >> for the sake of our national security, the "new york times" should publish his name alve problem.

4:16 pm
>> harris, great to be with you. the president having a very busy travel day with stops in the dakotas including right here where he took part in a fundraiser for south dakota g.o.p. gubernatorial helpful kristi noem. questions still abound about the infamous "new york times" op-ed. you know, the one allegedly penned by an anonymous administration official who claims to be working to subvert the president's policy goals. the larger argument percolating now, harris, is this: whether or not that administration official, who has admitted attempting to impede the function of government and its policy aims is, in fact, a national security threat. it is clear the president thinks so and today on board air force one he says he wants that person found. >> supposing i have a high level national security and he has got a clearance. we talked about clearances a lot. and he goes into a high level meeting concerning china or russia or north korea or something.
4:17 pm
and this guy goes in. i don't want him in those meetings. >> the president, harris, has proposed having the attorney general, jeff sessions and the doj locate the person who wrote that piece. but, as you can well imagine the "new york times" has a different viewpoint on that topic. let me share part of a statement from eileen murphy at the times. reads we're confident that the department of justice understands that the first amendment protects all of americans citizens and that it would not parp pate in such a blatant abuse of government power it is also important to point out that there is no criminal behavior, necessarily in having penned that op-ed even for the "times" anonymously. thus making it unlikely the doj would pursue that person, harris, criminally. however, the feds also might have a vested interest in electing that person if she or he is in the military or has any part of a national security portfolio the story continues to unfold.
4:18 pm
for now, back to you. >> harris: specifically today mercedes schlapp communications department of the white house mentioned security clearances. i mean, there were some other things that the president would want to take a look at to see if anyone was complicit in this and if there might be some retribution to be handed out. kevin corke, thank you very much. good to see you. let's bring in next guest and go deeper on this. an expert he is when it comes to deciphering writing. james fitzgerald is a former fbi linguist who poured through ted kaczynski's manifestos. we haven't said that name in a while. he was able to actually help identify him as the unabomber. he is the author of the memoir series a journey to the center of the mind. great to see you tonight. thank you for being with us james fitzgerald. let's start with what you say should be a commonality in something in identifying someone and that is that they use the lingo that only people in the room or the circle would know about.
4:19 pm
define this in this op-ed. >> i certainly did, harris. no doubt this person has advanced level of writing skills and he or she, not sure exactly gender at this point, but they know how to write very succinctly very cogently and get their points across. there is 27 paragraphs here. 14 of them are only one sentence. which is kind of unusual for people's writing style. paragraphs are generally supposed to be more than one sentence. however some journalists tend to write in only one sentence. so there are some -- i'm certainly aware this maybe a copy editor involved in this to some degree at the "new york times" maybe even several levels of that there may have been editing here. definitely language familiar to this person. and certainly from someone who may be involved in the white house staff. >> harris: i made a similar observation although it's different experience that's driving it. you are looking at it forensically. and i'm looking it from the eyes of journalists almost everything has some
4:20 pm
journalist editing except if it's breaking news. easy to i do guest and remember which is why they tend to be short. let's talk about the perspective that you found from this writing. singular choice. expertise. almost get business podesta from reading about it i have handled dozens of these cases even in retirement in the last 10 years from the fbi as a forensic linguist website glass companies ceos and i have been hired by ceos to find out who may have written these things. i don't judge whether it's right or wrong. they try to ask me to find authorship and determine it and i do. this letter, these 27 paragraph could say almost be elongated version of a glass door posting complaining about a boss, a company who does things wrong. so i don't find that all that unusual in terms of my experience. what i have noticed most
4:21 pm
importantly in those other types of communications they are what i call is a linguistic proof of life anybody familiar with kidnapping cases there is generally a picture of the victim holding up a newspaper or something that can be negated as you said earlier, harris, that would be something that would prove the kidnap victim is still alive so of course pay the ransom, et cetera. here in this document is all 27 paragraph not one thing singular as far as i know that hasn't already been mentioned in the media or someone wants book or various comments commenting on. it takes away from that. >> harris: yeah what you are saying like a calling card we have all enough of those type shows where they are leaving their calling card is what you are saying. i want to couple things that you pointed out to my team. you said you loongsd at some things. let's put these words up on the screen if i can. that's why many trump appointees have vowed to do
4:22 pm
what we can you say that's an important point to look at. why is that james? >> well, first of all anonymous authors have two goals in mind one to get their point across and two to remain anonymous 50/50 percentage on how they issues. the letter supposed to be anonymous we have here an interesting auto by graphic call clue that is why many trump appointees have vowed to do what we have. this person is includes himself or herself in this group of trump appointees i would consider that a contra indicator. that means it's against indications against what's truthful. very possible this person is lumping themselves in with atrump appointee group but in reality they may not be that. they may be a lower level someone who just took a regular job and somehow now
4:23 pm
they are involved in the white house staff in some decision-making and all of a sudden they are trying to lump themselves in with this to try to make themselves more important but also not identified. >> harris: do you know what's interesting what you say about lower level that's the idea that if the "new york times" sort of suggesting more than suggesting that this is a higher level official. puts them on a different playing field in terms of their sourcing for this. if it is, in fact, a lower level person, the criticism has been well, is that then closer to gossip than expertise? it's an interesting question and you pointed out on a different perspective. james fitzgerald, thank you very much. great to have you on the program tonight. >> you are welcome, harris. >> harris: it was a moment of defiance that turned out to be well, not so defiant. >> about the closest i will ever have in my life i am spartacus moment. >> harris: and, of course, cue the people. senator spartacus now senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says there could

emily susman, democratic strategist and senior advisor for gram up the midterm. that is right on time 60 days away or so. let's start with the initial grand standing senator booker did it sure did in that moment yesterday look like he was ready to capitulate whatever rules were coming that he was breaking, the punishment and so on and so forth i'm going to save the people by showing some documents about brett kavanaugh sompleght he had actually already violated senate rules the day before by releasing the document and speaking about what the content of them was. when they had that exchange in the senate, he was actually quite surprised by the fact that coming at him so aggressively talking about impeachment. that's where that emotion came from. booker was coming into the senate and saying look we need to understanding where it comes from. this is a lifetime appointment. this is not about the political moment. this is really about understanding where some of
4:30 pm
rulings effect the american people what his perspective is on it. we only have less than 10% of the documents released. we need to see more to understanding. >> harris: can you walk across all the sharks? that's what i want to know. he knows he has talked with senator lee. >> prior. >> he knew. >> prior to any of the histrionics happened. >> he knew it. >> document were. >> they weren't confidential. they everywhere approved for release. he knew that situation. what's interesting is and funny it took so long to find them because usually spartacus found by everyone suddenly not so in front of everyone. the irony any here he clearly was performing for part of the base saying i'm your champion. also normally you don't call yourself spartacus. other people are supposed to call you that there he was performing and same thing he learned were not true and misrepresenting. that's why for both parties
4:31 pm
there are individuals now, you see people the approval rating of congress so low because they are tired of the fraud of what they a lot of talk, no real delivery being misrepresented and lied to in some instances so this appeal to the far left part of the base was actually more of what all of us do not like and this, i think is, a lesson for all of us. it certainly back fired. i don't think his base is going to like it because we missed an opportunity to really do ask serious questions in the charade and the circus that the democrats created. >> harris: whether a was interesting, do, senator hirono from hawaii had a completely different issue and had actually come forth more earnestly with releasing these documents and wanting people to focus on the navin american constitutionality issues she was having. she was jumping yes i will go down in flames to bring this all alive, too. and bring it to the public. it was a missed opportunity for booker to get on with
4:32 pm
something that actually was confidential. >> she is documents. he continues to release documents. i would actually to clarify one release on the time line the conversation when the senate decided to make the documents public it was after he had already spoken about the content of them. so that was actually the fact they were no longer confidential was actually not so relevant because he had already spoken about them. i do actually take issue with the fact this was all grand standing. >> harris: what was it? senator thune -- for president. senator thune said that's what booker's actions told you he is definitely running for the '. >> what if it's understand kavanaugh's past. what if he really does believe it? i the fact that he was -- you know what? i didn't interrupt you. the fact he was saying that he was running for president is the easiest way to write it off. people are nerv nervous.
4:33 pm
>> what the coverage was and the reason we have a problem with that and that's not accurate. this was about his spartacus moment. what i am doing. what's going to happen to me. where i'm putting myself at risk. it was the cory booker show. it was not about judge kavanaugh. if he was serious he would have stood up against the circus that was happening with people who had been invited by the drafts into that room. it clearly had nothing to do with judge kavanaugh, especially sings all of them, virtually all the democrats had said already they're not going to confirm him. >> harris: emily what i appreciate about what you are saying and you are looking for that sincerity and you are looking for that nugget of what if this person really does care about the people, i mean, i totally get that the timing and the time line are something people disagree with one thing is for sure. is he still releasing documents. what do they do now? mitch mcconnell may go after him. >> the ethics committee is a place where people go and you never hear about them again. remember al franken and they said well it should go to

>> harris: you may know the name peter schweizer exposed corruption by the clintons in bombshell book "clinton cash" and he is back at it with a brand new targets big tech companies. and his new movie quote the creepy line, schweizer explores how companies like facebook and google track our data and influence our views. watch. >> it will always favor one online music service over another and one candidate over another. google and facebook have the power to undermine democracy without us knowing that democracy has been undermined. >> it's what i call the creepy line and the policy about a lot of these things is to get right up to the creepy line but not cross it. >> harris: peter schweizer joints me now face recognition and all the personal data. are they crossing the line?
4:40 pm
>> absolutely. google crosses that line every day. important for people to realize privacy and collecting this information on you. they are actually using this information against you. not just to try to sell your products but to try to manipulate your views and your attitudes on political issues and other things. there is academic evidence for this overwhelming and simply no question. i think the question is what are we going to do about it? >> harris: and will they losen their grip to let us do. i can't imagine they do this and it makes no money. >> well, that's right. there a monetary component. but, look, the other thing that google has done from the beginning is define itself as a different type of company. in other words, they are not just bottom line oriented they have a mission and purpose and it's kind of quasieuropquasiutopian quite opn
4:41 pm
manipulating algorithm and carrying out other activities advance those political interests. guess what, it has results. there is overwhelming evidence that their manipulations and their search manipulation does dramatically influence particularly swing voters. voters that don't have defined views they have a real back the on the political decisions those people are making. >> harris: if they try to fill up the public space with stuff we ought to like and know and cross that creepy line is the answer for the government to step n any way? >> well, look, here's the interesting thing, google and facebook are essentially unregulated because of something called the communications decency act of 1996 seconds 320 o 3 section 320 of that law neutral platforms. >> harris: but they are not neutral platforms. >> that's exactly right.

that's the point. the point is that's what they claim they are. that's how they are regulated. they are not. they are basically media companies, fox, nbc, you name it are regulated far differently than google and facebook. so, my point is we don't need new laws, we simply need to call google what they are which is media companies and they need to be regulated accordingly. >> harris: people hear that that sounds like extra government i would imagine that's why they keep calling them to capitol hill. one last quick word. >> it's not extra government. it's calling them what they're. if i start a paper rowrt and i start publishing a newspaper, i can't say i only let a paper route regulate me that wait a minute. >> harris: peter schweizer, thank you. >> thank you. when we come back, a weather alert for the entire east coast. tropical storm florence is coming.
