9:05 am
front of us should get out and vote and participate. there has only ever been one justice who has been impeached. i think talking about it isn't necessarily healing us and moving us forward. arthel: we are joined by gayle trotter. ways your reaction to judge kavanaugh's confirmation and the process to get him there. >> it's great to call him justice kavanaugh today. while we saw the difficulty he and his family underwent during this confirmation process, today is a great day for all americans and those who believe in the rule of law. thearthel: do you believe and do you think americans believe the constitution will be the vanguard of the supreme court or will politics tip the scale of
9:06 am
justice. >> that's why we supported judge kavanaugh. he's faithful to the constitution. the most of important issue for you a judge is that they don't insert their personal policy preferences into the decisions. judge kavanaugh has demonstrated that through the 2 years on the d.c. circuit and now as justice kavanaugh he'll be able to faithfully adhere to the constitution on the bench as a supreme court justice. arthel: some of those who were not in favor of a justice kavanaugh continue to point out during the hearings how judge kavanaugh mentioned hillary clinton and in some sort of retribution intimating that basically payback is a you know what. does that concern you at all? >> not at all. when you saw brett kavanaugh
9:07 am
testifying before the senate judiciary committee last thursday, he was there as a man, a father, a husband, a son. the 30 hours of testimony he gave when the discredited allegations were launched against him. arthel: we understand he felt personally attacked and he was whether you believe either side of this particular story. but still the supreme court is a pressure cooker. that is also something others pointed out who were detract tores of just -- detractors of judge kavanaugh saying he doesn't have the judicial temperament to remain cool under pressure. >> people said that in regard to the d.c. circuit. but he ruled against the bush administration in their
9:08 am
signature terrorism case. and he was able to apply fundamental principles of fair play. that won't be a concern at all for him in his role as supreme court justice. >> what do you think the issues are at this point that they should focus on. >> they should embrace justice kavanaugh. and trying to go the impeachment route is giving in to their far left base. susan collins from maine friday outlined why she voted the way she did. instead the democrats should address the real issues americans are facing. they will have department opinions than president trump. but that will be more productive for the body politic than trying to go on this fruitless search to continue to obstruct and try
9:09 am
to thwart justice kavanaugh on the supreme court. arthel: those are the progressive groups calling for that. on the other side. should the gop campaign on the record jobs numbers and the healthy economy. or on the fear that if the democrats take over the house, i think democrats will solely work to expel justice kavanaugh from the supreme court. >> the republicans should use the positive message president trump continues to deliver on his promises. whether it be by tax cuts or putting america first in foreign policy, and more importantly delivering judges to the supreme court who are faithful, independent, and committed to the constitution. and president trump has been successful at that and republicans should be running on that in the mid terms for sure. arthel: gayle trotter, we thank

tourist area. a news conference is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. eastern. arthel: house republicans demanding the release of key memos reportedly revealing deputy attorney general rod rosenstein allegedly secretly working to undermine president trump in order to remove him from office. devin nunes reacting earlier on "sunday morning futures" with maria bartiromo. >> mccabe's people said rosenstein was wanting to wear a wire to secretly record the president of the united states so they could use the 25th amendment to remove him. that's a bombshell if you have the deputy attorney general who is in charge of the russia investigation who appointed the special count willing to do that. arthel: rod rosenstein said the
9:18 am
comment was made in jest. he's expected to be on capitol hill this week to testify. mike: lawmakers interviewed former fbi agent jim baker saying there was another unnamed source feeding information to the fbi before the fbi launched their investigation of the trump campaign. that individual has been identified as michael sussman with links to the democratic national committee. >> you have one of the top lawyers for department krat and clinton campaign feeding information directly to the top lawyer at the fbi, before even the fisa warrant. so now you have absolute proof that that wasn't told to the fisa court.
9:19 am
you want your evidence of fisa abuse? there it is right there. mike are's a former prosecutor and united states attorney. what do you make of fox news report being a senior fbi official being in touch with a dnc lawyer sharing information about the trump campaign? >> i think it's probably much ado about nothing. the key word is dnc-linked. somebody who used to work in counter espionage or cyber-security at the fbi had a different client that he wanted to take to his former colleagues. that happens all the time. that's why these lawyers when they go into private practice are so out out because they know how to bring information to the attention of law enforcement. nunes has tried for months to make a mountain out of a
9:20 am
molehill. i understand why devin nunes may not want that to be the focus. but the facts presented to the court are pretty damning. mike: what are your expectations going in? >> rosenstein is in the hot seat. he has been in the hot seat for months. i think he's probably going to do what he has done to date which appease everybody as best he can. try to fight back sort of these political attacks. if he was going to get fired it would be arely would have happened two weeks ago. i think he's probably tonight for the long-haul or at least until mid terms he'll be in that position. >> is there something rosenstein can say to republicans on the oversight committees to calm relations? >> i don't think anybody on the
9:21 am
house intelligence committee is operating in good faith. the attacks nunes has made for months and months is furthest from the truth of how our law enforcement and intelligence agencies work. the attacks made on them aren't fair and they are substanceless. we have a president whose personal lawyer, national security advisor have all pled guilty. they don't do that because they wanted to. there is something behind the trump investigation. i think everyone will evaluate what the facts are. mike: there are congressional republicans who think this stinks. >> one of the questions, they have been pushing for the release of some of these memos of andrew mccabe.
9:22 am
what memos get releases and what memos don't get releases. some of the memos they don't want released substantiated what's in the carter page warrant. there will be some more of that maneuvering behind the scenes. this is an incredibly political investigation and political environment. mike: the other question will be with the kavanaugh confirmation done, will this be the week rosenstein has his face to face with president trump? >> i think he might, i think the president would have done that already. i suspect rosenstein decided he's not going to resign. president trump can fire him, if it does, i think it will set off a klain reaction that will be incredibly dangerous to the white house. mike: is a shake-up inevitable
9:23 am
at the justice department? >> anything is possible. i wouldn't put it past president trump. but we have to focus on what's happened here. the president is the focus of an extensive investigation in which his associates have admitted to federal crimes. there the he should be able to step in and reshuffle the deck on those investigating him should be a concern to anybody who cares about this country. arthel: will the battle over brett kavanaugh energize voters? >> i never campaigned against a colleague in my life. rucks. what the heck is that?! whoa! what truck brand comes from the family of the most dependable, longest-lasting full-size pickups on the road?

the mustard agrees another red states for where democrats are up for reelection. on "fox news sunday," senator lindsey graham said -- >> i've never campaigned against a colleague in my life. that's about to change. i'm going to go throughout this country and let people in this purple states, red states where trump on, know what i thought, why think about this process. reporter: that is one point both sides agree with. democrats are not happy with how the process play out either and went to the protest we saw this past week at the capitol is proof that a lot of voters are upset and fired up over kavanaugh's confirmation. >> we have an election coming up and i said to the women who are justifiably angry and they said they should be just focused like a laser beam on the elections because they are connecting the dots.
9:30 am
they know the senators are making this confirmation decisions of the people elected by their voters. reporter: house minority leader nancy pelosi on kavanaugh's confirmation now vowing to watch further investigation if the democrats are able to retake the house majority in november. my good train to midterm is 30 days from today. get ready. gary tenney, thanks a lot. >> judy miller is an adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute for policy research pulitzer prize-winning journalist and author as well. let's get your take. who's going to be more galvanized, judy? >> that is the key question for november. it is a long time between now and november in trump in terms because the president has a habit of creating a new headline the day. will the anger that so many women feel over the kavanaugh confirmation train late into
9:31 am
turnout or will republicans be energized. a great deal is at stake as you know. democrats need to senate seats to win control of the senate and they need 23 seats in the house to take back the house of representatives. and therefore, since democrats know so much is at stake even before the kavanaugh confirmation, and there was a lot of work, a lot of organizing. what kavanaugh has done this or minded republicans what's at stake. the cook report says that the moment this episode, this controversy seems to have helped republicans in the senate and democrats in the house. we will see. it's a long time between now and november. arthel: will american voters demand more than political bickering? will they vote on issues that affect them and their families?
9:32 am
>> traditionally they do. that is by mid-terms are so interesting. typically the opposition party, the presidents party pick up seats in these races. will the american people focus on health care, for example, were democrats have been arguing republicans are shredding obamacare, shredding coverage for the average american or will they look at the economy and say hey, donald trump is doing pretty well. our jobs are more plentiful than before. even wages are picking up. lowest unemployment rate for blacks and hispanics being used in years. it is very important democrats and republicans emphasize local issues that benefit them. the democrats are going to concentrate hard on these
9:33 am
especially democratic race is on health care because poll after poll shows that is a real hot button issue especially in the midwest where a lot of the seats are up for grabs. arthel: meanwhile, the crippling effect of partisanship is inescapable. will this deepen the political divide and if you think you will, what to fix in who leads the charge? >> i think it's inevitable and that's what happened when both sides seem to have reacted to the cabin on nomination and very predict the bull partisan ways. there weren't a lot of people swayed one way or another by the testimony that was heard in that extraordinary week now seems like many weeks ago but definitely this past week. i think that coming in no, it is so important to both sides that people begin to mobilize. what i worry about -- turn into
9:34 am
when you say people mobilize, and not mobilize an opposite direction. coming together as a country. i ask you what is president trump's role in bridging the political divide, the personal divide in many ways that has prevailed and begin to bring our country together. >> that he hasn't done that. time after time is exacerbated those differences. he has really played on fear and what divides us rather than what brings us together. the democrats for their part have not been able to craft a message that reaches across the partisan divide. we are at the moment in a very desperate situation and people like me who're independent analyst worry about democracy itself because democracy demands
9:35 am
simply people who will take the time to go. we know that only 40% of people typically do not in the mid-terms and not does not speak well for us and it does not bode well for the future. arthel: well, let's hope we all get it back together. this is a great country and the democratic process must rule, continue to roll. judy miller, thank you. >> thank you. mike: new development on nuclear talks as secretary mike pompeo wraps up his fourth visit with the leader of that regime. what he says about the progress in what we learn about a second summit between president trump and kim jong un. >> we got our hostages back from north korea and we have a good relationship. who knows what happens but i think the things. the same?

9:40 am
visit to north korea with an announcement that he and kim jong un made unspecified progress towards efforts to dismantle the regime's nuclear weapon. this comes in south korea since washington and pyongyang are planning a second summit between both leaders as soon as possible. president trump weighing in at his rally in kansas last night. >> no more missile testing. no more rocket testing. no more nuclear testing. our great, great heroes [inaudible] [cheers and applause] and we got our hostages back. [cheers and applause] arthel: trading sues live from jerusalem bureau with more. >> good afternoon, ourselves. we are learning this afternoon secretary of state mike pompeo in north korea and kim jong un have agreed to arrange a second meaning between president trump
9:41 am
as soon as possible according to south korea moon jae-in's office. the president for the fourth time to meet with kim jong un. a 90 minute lunch at the korean dictator to discuss the next steps in a larger plane for denuclearization of the korean peninsula. the meeting follows a summit in june between kim jong un and president trump where was agreed upon north korea to work towards giving up nuclear weapons and improving relations with the united states since the gathering in singapore u.s. negotiations with north korea has stalled causing president trump to previously cancel a planned trip for secretary pompeo to pyongyang back in august. following the meeting in north korea the secretary straight travel to seoul south korea where he met with president moon jae-in peer pompeo says he and kim jong un had a productive conversation called the talks another step forward. before returning to the united states from secretary pompeo scheduled to travel to china.
9:42 am
china in a tight trade battle with the united states but also a key player in the north korean negotiations. arthel: thank you. mike: hoover institution fellow and former met run a campaign policy director, great to have you. >> good to be with you, mike. arthel: secretary of state mike pompeo spent several hours describing the talks as productive in another step forward. how do you without diplomatic speak? >> there's a lot of road left to be traveled. a significant amount of work to be done. we done. we are talking about some tough issues here, mike. on one hand we want the north koreans to abandon the very thing identified the country for so long. we talk about denuclearization, a very nuclear -- lengthy process. verification is something north koreans have been resistant to. the meeting between secretary pompeo and chairman kim is a
9:43 am
step in the right direction. in the right way as a way of holding them accountable for the promises they make. mike: the second summit with north korea is that wise or do at the north koreans to do something concrete first? >> the question is always going to be one of what the sequencing is. obviously north koreans would love a second meeting with president trump. they would love president trump to travel to pyongyang. i would argue we need the additional good faith from north koreans before we dignify north koreans at the meeting from our president. it's crucially important for us to see evidence the north koreans are moving in the right direction. whether that means dismantling concessions regarding monitoring. it's crucially important to show some good faith before we set
9:44 am
into motion the second meeting. mike: in your mind what could he president trump meeting prove? >> we are building trust and when you're building trusted is hard to deliver concrete results beyond saying we had a nice meeting, nice discussion and we sat down and agreed to continue talking. frankly you think about the relationship between the u.s. and north korea. it's been so fraught in the past, so difficult that is actually progress in another cell. a notion that the two leaders can sit down and say we agree for example and a timetable something we need to look at around the denuclearization process. there really is trust building now. mike: is came looking for sanctions before he will take that next step? >> sanctions are one thing. the other thing potentially as u.s. military presence in the region which is deeply concerning the notion we would step back from our engagement in the region. one of the reasons why we've
9:45 am
seen relative peace in the region for many, many decades. the north koreans say look were happy to talk to you the united states means to back away from military commitment to the region. i would find that problematic. this is not necessarily a negotiation without trickiness between now and when president trump to sit down with chairman kim the next time. mike: let's shift gears to trade for a bit. u.s. has a new deal with mexico and canada and part of that is allowing countries to back out if members pursue a side deal with china. let's take a listen to larry kudlow in alaska to reach on. >> the president strategy appears to be working. we see this with u.s. mca. we are holding trade negotiations with europe. we are holding trade negotiations with japan. we issued to try part letter the three countries basically saying nonmarket economies read china has got to shape a.
9:46 am
china regrettably is not playing by the rules and has not played by those rules for many years. >> your reaction to all of that. >> this is exactly the right strategy if you want to engage china on trade in highly productive outcome. the problem with the way the chinese handle trade is their business model requires countries to do business in china turn over their intellectual property and engage in joint ventures with native businesses but essentially our shells for them expropriating intellectual property and information. if you begin to isolate china with other democratic players around the world whether it's europeans, canadians, japanese, and begins to show the chinese there is a price they have to pay for engaging effect committees and behaviors do not really look at them to change. fundamentally that is a good goal to achieve. mike: do you see change coming
9:47 am
with aging as they see the united states cutting a deal with neighbors talking to europe, is change coming to europe? >> i would expect it anytime soon, mike. the chinese will have to realize as time goes on how isolated they potentially could be. bear in mind the chinese are pursuing their own trade deals. they're also looking to do as much business as they can in the region. if anything happens it will take some time that's sure. mike: lanhee chen, thank you for a time and expertise. >> good to be with you. arthel: fox news alert we have an update on the tragic limo crash of a popular upstate new york tourist spot.
