tv Fox News Night With Shannon Bream FOX News February 14, 2019 8:00pm-9:00pm PST
that. that is all the time we have tonight. i'm tammy bruce in for laura ingraham. thank you for watching. learn more about me at tammybruce.com and president of independent women's voice. shannon bream and the "fox news @ night" team take it from here. >> shannon: great to see you. thank you so much. we begin tonight with a fox news alert. right now the white house says it has put together billions more for the president's border wall. tonight, and within a matter of hours the president is expected to sign the border and the government funding bill and declare a national emergency. we're getting breaking information from the white house right now about the president's plan. hello. welcome to "fox news @ night." i'm shannon bream in washington. we have team coverage tonight. chad on the president's plans to take an extraordinary step to secure the border and the critics daring him to do it. david spunt live with capitol hill on details from the final deal but we begin with ellison barber from the white house where the president's team will be strategizing around the clock.
>> a senior administration official telling us that president trump will announce $8 billion for his border wall. we are told he plans to use the executive action to move around or sort of free up money from various federal agency to get money, the funding for the border wall. we are also told he does plan to declare national emergency. the senior administration official tells us of the president they are not sure when the physical copy of the funding bill will make its way to the white house but they said that president trump at this point in time is planning to sign that. they are expecting him to sign that tomorrow morning. a statement earlier, white house sarah sanders said this -- a new report by abc news the d.o.j. is telling white house the courts will step in and block a national emergency declaration and it's "nearly
certain" to be blocked by the courts on at least a temporary basis preventing the immediate implementation of the president's plan to circumvent congress and build the wall using his executive powers. in 2014, president trump criticized then president obama on the day he announced series of executive actions relating to immigration, tweeting the pubs must not have allow president obama to circumvent the constitution for his benefit when he's unable to negotiate with congress. right now, president trump seems to make move on his own and they seem unconcerned about the legal action that is surely on horizon. >> shannon: thank you very much. now straight to capitol hill where democrats are warning he better not declare the national emergency. but the white house says he is on firm legal ground. david? >> this has been a night on capitol hill.
the deadline was february 15 at midnight. less than an hour. guess what? congress made it. and it appears that the government will be funded. no 9 with the wrangling and the fighting between the inner fighting. the vote in the house, 300-128. thenate 83-16. the white house standing by of the bill. we have new video of pelosi signing the legislation in a photo op before it was sent to the white house for the president's signature. congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez progressive democrat from new york voted no because of the bill's funding for part of the department of homeland security. same story from congressman omar who wants to defund the department of homeland security. speaker pelosi said today declaring the national emergency sets a dangerous precedent for the future president. she mentioned gun violence as this is the one-year anniversary of the parkland, florida, shooting. >> you want to talk about a
national emergency? talk about today. the one-year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in america. that is a national emergency. why don't you declare that emergency, mr. president. i wish you would. but a democratic president can do that. democratic president can declare emergencies as well. >> meaning a democratic president could choose what constitutes a national emergency in the future. back in the senate, majority leader mitch mcconnell made it clear he had assurances from president trump it will would be signed. it calls for $1.57 billion for borders enough for 55 miles of fencing on the texas border. but there is a provision for homeland security to discuss construction with the local leaders before any of the construction takes place on the wall. this issue wedged the republicans together. spoke to the texas congressman louis gomer who said he is concerned about the it litigatin
that will come from the national emergency. >> i came in today, this morning thinking you know i may be able to vote for this. but then when i started to get the language i was incredibly disappointed. i couldn't vote for this stuff. there were all kind of land mines in here. call it a poison pill. semi-poison pill. there will be a lot of litigation coming out of the bill. >> the congressman from tyler, texas, says he has concerns. congress is in recess next week but they did meet the deadline of february 15. there was concerns that wouldn't happen now. it's in the hands of the white house. >> shannon: thank you very much. we'll watch and wait tonight as they consider their strategies there. so as the white house cobbles together billions in additional funding that it says can legally go to the wall, democrats are vowing to fight efforts to use money for border security. senior capitol hill producer chad has the latest. >> hey there. one of the big issues here is how much can the president
move around in they talk about the $8 billion. look at the appropriations bill. he can go up to $750 million there. that won't get you to $5 billion. but if you move from defense to military construction, v.a. he can get there. the problem is you can't technically do that. even if you move around in one silo and one homeland security bill or another bill individually you have to have sign off by appropriators. going over the line is why people think this is constitutional. we talked with jerry nadler the chair of the house judiciary committee earlier. he said this is a power grab and it would upset separation of power. the chair of the house appropriations committee said she might consider putting riders in the future legislation to try to harness the president. >> all right. we know all administrations test the limits of executive power. i covered a number of the cases over the supreme court.
this isn't the first time this has happened. why does it bother member of both parties so much? >> the republicans think it sets a bad precedent. you don't know what comes next. if you start to move around in the appropriation bills, all of the programs and the pet projects have the constituencies among the lawmakers of both parties. you are robbing peter to pay paul. if you move money from defense to ships or airplanes or wall, someone cries foul to say wait. you are taking our money. there is a constitutional issue here. article 1, section 9 of the constitution says that congress has the power of the purse and if you cede that to the executive one wonders if they are playing within the rules. >> we look like we don't an overnight government overshot -- overnight government shutdown. we have done enough of those. following a stunning interview by ousted official andrew mccabe lawmakers on both sides of the aisle say they will force him to testify on capitol hill.
chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge has more on the claims that mccabe is now making and the fire storm he reignited. is there -- >> you have having a conversation whether you to invoke that. >> he did not rule out subpoena to compel testimony from rosenstein and former f.b.i. director andrew mccabe. about discussions to remove president trump. >> i would imagine if the shoe were on the other foot my democratic colleagues would want to know about that conversation. if it involved a democrat. >> graham was responding to mccabe's upcoming "60 minutes" interview. according to cbs mccabe confirmed the long-standing media reports including by fox he believed rosenstein was serious about wearing a wire to record the president. >> i was speaking to the man that had just run for the presidency. and won the election for the presidency. and who might have done so with the aid of the government of russia.
>> may 17 is a pivotal month. rosen sine was two weeks in the job when comey was fired by the president. investigation of obstruction of justice opened in addition to the russia probe. >> i wanted to make sure the case was on solid ground. >> in a statement, they stopped short of rosen sine removing the president. saying he never authorized a recording that mr. mccabe references. based on his personal dealings with the president there is no basis to invoke the 25th amendment. in a tweet, president trump hit back and characterized mccabe as a disgrace and puppet. >> last spring he was fired for violating the code of ethics for lying and mccabe's case is now with the u.s. attorney in washington for possible criminal prosecution. shannon? >> shannon: catherine herridge, thank you very much. bring in the top republican on the house judiciary committee
congressman doug colins from georgia among those demanding that both mccabe and deputy attorney general rosenstein show up on capitol hill under oath to explain what a lot of folks say is a biased hit job against the president. welcome. great to have you with us. >> great to be hear. >> you say that there has been testimony and you have heard from people about the conversations about whether there was a discussion to wear a wire, talk to president or use the 25th amendment. what can you tell us? >> what we are seeing for the first part, a lot of people say the investigation, judiciary committee in the house have been doing and reform committee, many of us look in this for well over two years now. we are chasing windmills. conspiracyerer theory. but today mccabe showed the theories were real. but what made it worse this is worse than the '60s movie "seven days in may." this was a time we see the department of justice using the full force of the power to contemplate what is nothing
less than a coup. going a whip count to see who in the cabinet members would go about this. this is confirmed by the other testimony we have seen. this goes back to a corrupt try -- triumbrant. if you look at this, this goes back to 2016 and follows through. this is not the f.b.i. as a whole. this is a kabul that found the time in eight days that comey was fired and this is the time to act. he confirmed what we have known through the text and the communications and the transcripts of f.b.i. >> you are asking for them to come testify under oath. senate side it look like bipartisan call for this as well. democrat, senator blumenthal says -- full fact-finding demands, mccabe be called to the judiciary committee in public under oath and others
explosive claims cry out for the clear-eyed exposure. this is what the new chairman of the committee lindsey graham says. >> this interview, the excerpts i have seen suggests that mr. mccabe was hell-bent on stopping donald trump not only from becoming president but trying to make sure he did not stay president. this should scare every american when the law enforcement community becomes political operatives and they are advocates for a political cause. >> shannon: any american, if that is true, should be worried about this. are you confident or any hope that the democrats controlling the house judiciary committee will want answers you are looking for? >> i believe they will. i'm going to think of better angle but i'm also skeptical. it's amazing to me that up until the transition and they took over on january 3, they didn't want anything to do with mueller. they wouldn't question. they told us we were getting too close. they stayed away from it. they didn't want to believe what we were seeing and they
could see as well. they were in the same hearings. now all they want to do is talk about mule maul and talk about the president -- talk about mueller and talk about the president. what the chairman sid is important. this is something for everybody watching tonight. just to think for a second. what if this had been four years earlier in 2013 and this was the justice department and changeover in which the questions were asked about president obama. when he had his conversation with the russian president. after the election i'll be more agreeable. more flexibility. would that have disturbed them? they have a realization, they didn't like the election results in 2016. they had been allowed by the obama administration to become politicized. you see that with strozk and page and the text messages. you see the insurance policy. all the things that just goes back to you had corrupt influence that needs to be rooted out. bill barr's first step is go
in and sweep. >> shannon: the new attorney general officially today. let us know if you get a response on the letter about the proceedings on the house side. thank you for coming in. good to see you. tonight, congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez declares victory because amazon announced it's not going to build the new headquarters in new york city. taking 25,000 jobs off the table. >> it shows that every day americans still have the power to organize and fight for their communities. they can have more say in this country than richest man in the world. >> shannon: and a mother thrown in jail. she claims for calling a person by the wrong gender pronoun on twitter. could it happen to you? details ahead. as someone in witness protection, i can't tell you anything about myself. but believe me... i'm not your average consumer. that's why i switched to liberty mutual. they customized my car insurance, so i only pay for what i need.

>> shannon: breaking tonight hours after democratic socialist darling alexandria ocasio-cortez did a victory lap for spiking amazon's plans to launch major expansion in new york. check out the headline from the "associated press." amazon exit could scare tech companies from new york. go to jonathan hunt for more. good evening. >> good evening, shannon. a very public breakup for amazon and new york on valentine's day. also causing a split among democrats with new york governor andrew cuomo and alexandria ocasio-cortez at the heart of it. first, the back story. with the promise of $3 billion in tax incentives, amazon had fallen in love with new york's long island city as the site of a new headquarters that would bring 25,000 jobs. some local politicians and the activists thought the relationship was inprotoand they made the opposition -- inappropriate and made the opposition known. so amazon broke it off saying
a number of state and local politicians made it clear they oppose the presence and will not work with us to build the type of relationship that are required to go forward. congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez was delighted. >> it shows that everyday americans still have the power to organize. and fight for their communities. they can have more say in this country than richest man in the world. >> governor cuomo was heart-broken issuing a statement that said in part a small group of politicians put their own narrow political interest above their community. the state's economic future and the best interests of the people of this state. some experts warned the messy breakup might scare off other tech companies. the executive director of stray group tech nyc telling the "associated press" one of the real risks here is the message we send to companies that want to come to new york
and expand to new york. we are really playing with fire right now." so while the empire state building is lit up in red right now for valentine's day, the amazon-new york relationship will clearly not be an affair to remember. amazon executives seemingly at ease with their decision tonight will probably not be sleepless in seattle. >> shannon: you are so witty. thank you very much. is congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez bad for business? we are joined by the accountn't project and -- accountability project. and brian chairs the program in kings college in new york. welcome. >> good to be here. >> shannon: i want to read something from doug schoen. democratic pollster. the headline of the peace amazon's cancellation move to new york is catastrophic and
could hurt far left dems at the polls and says ultimately that amazon's cancellation of the plans to come the new york is a loss not only for those like ocasio-cortez who want to redistrict wealth but for those who -- redistributor wealth but for those who want to expand growth. >> you don't know the last time that schoen worked on a democratic campaign to start. i'm a resident of queens and i'm proud that our congresswoman and my senator were at the forefront fighting this deal from the start. amazon had a track record before this. they had a railroad of driving up homelessness in seattle. they have been sued but the austin city council for not following through on their deal. this community stripped of resources. m.t.a. in debt.
public housing is $32 billion in debt. we generate more wealth than anywhere on the planet. long island city is the fastest growing community in the country. we are not going to have a problem with recruiting to long island city. this is a handout to the richest man and no reinvestment in the community. >> one estimate is $25 billion would have come in, in the next 25 years to the locality. phil oluva ran as a republican for congress in new york said the people who proposed the economic security for those unwilling to work, part of the doreen deal, celebrate kill tag,000 high paying jobs for willing. #socialism kills. the far left is happy about this and say they have won one. >> why do you celebrate driving 25,000 jobs out of long island city? what's ridiculous.
amazon shouldn't get the tax subsidiaries but new york doesn't win when they lose all the jobs. you see the governor talk about the loss this is. he has to balance a budget. he says we are not winning driving the rich out of new york or driving businesses out of new york. ocasio-cortez doesn't have to balance a budget. she doesn't care about the cost. >> governor cuomo has a history of not taxing real estate developers. his backers are the 1% of new york. he is not in long island city or astoria or the bronx. he doesn't see how expenseive is it to survive in new york. he has more concern about the real estate backers not paying taxes and preserving their tax incentive than people of new york struggling to get by.
the worst income inequality in the country. handing out tax breaks and talking about 25,000 jobs in new york. there is no proof of that. >> shannon: but let me ask you brian is this good for republicans because it looks to a lot of the average americans who would love to have a job and have the opportunities and are saying hey, bring your company to my red state. i'll take it. >> yes. hand out to republicans. they are saying the green new deal that you heard about promising utopia. the people behind that love to kick businesses out of their own city. the republican mayors say come here and set up the shop. create jobs. we have a choice. you can be a city or state friendly to business or be one that is run by the hard left and kick them out. when you are bun by the hard left you are only undercutting opportunities for your own people. people of the long island city losing out here. >> shannon: we have to leave it there. >> small business. invest in small business.
>> no agreement or the love match here on valentine's day when it comes to this issue. thank you very much for being with us. >> thank you. >> good to be here. >> shannon: all right. is the fight against isis finally and fully coming to an end as the terror group reportedly on the verge of being eliminated? new warnings that it still poses a deadly threat. and is joe biden about to throw his hat in the ring? we have the man that many people think could be trump's toughest challenger in 2020. tr? i want free access to research. yep, td ameritrade's got that. free access to every platform. yeah, that too. i don't want any trade minimums. yeah, i totally agree, they don't have any of those. i want to know what i'm paying upfront. yes, absolutely. do you just say yes to everything? hm. well i say no to kale. mm. yeah, they say if you blanch it it's better, but that seems like a lot of work. no hidden fees. no platform fees. no trade minimums. and yes, it's all at one low price. td ameritrade. ♪

200-plus miles he wanted. half of the republicans voting no. most democrats were yes. the president plans to roll out the declaration first thing tomorrow. stand by for fireworks. the argument whether the time is right to pull troops out of syria, the end is near for the isis caliphate where a top general says isis is on the verge of collapse. but as benjamin hall reports the end of the campaign is not yet in sight. >> shannon, the going is slow. this is the final isis-held village and the intelligence suggests that the remaining inside are the battle-hardened who are willing to fight to the death. isis pushing back to use the suicide car bomb, these antitank guided missiles. despite their attempts they are losing ground and the u.s. forces are advancing making slow and methodical progress.
u.s. sport is critical. the drones and the planes fly overhead constantly. they conducted 179 strikes in syria and leveled the district of the town taking care to avoid hitting the civilians but it is believed that isis hold some human shields. moth americans fled to the desert. to,000 alone in the last weeks. they are screened and the biometrics are recorded and sent to camp. today president of russia, turkey an iran met to discuss future of northern syria. president erdogan sinnists that they should set up a 20-mile buffer zone to safeguard against the kurds but russia and iran pushed back saying it could happen with the approval of the syrian government. there is an eye on fulfilling the direct tiff to pull troops
out but ensuring that isis doesn't come back. >> thank you very much. >> shannon: insiders are confirming the potential 2020 hopeful senator bernie sanders reached out to elano marr to offer support after she faced backlash from both sides of the aisle what many considered antisemitic comment on twitters. sanders saying we will stand by the muslim brothers and the sisters. the former lawyer for stormy daniel michael avenatti toiled with running for himself. but tonight he is releasing documents so they can look into financial fraud. he is working out of the firm with a different name but the same partners and staff and
says that business is booming. fox news confirmed joe biden laying the groundwork for 2020 run to create team of the donors and the staffers to launch the campaign. he has still not formally announced but he doesn't feel a rush to step in growing field of the growing contenders due to established name recognition. the president gearing up for a national emergency in hours as the critics say they drafted lawsuits to stop him. possible 2020 contender beto o'rourke says if he is president what has gone up will come down. >> if you could, would you take the wall down here? >> y. >> take the wall down. >> i'd take the wall down. >> the power panel may have something to say about that. they're on deck to break it down when we return.

>> shannon: this is a fox news alert. it seems guaranteed that the president is going to pull the trigger declaring a national emergency. within hours to get money for the border barrier. the power panel to talk about that. former clinton adviser richard goodstein. former chairman and fox news contributor jason chaffetz. fox news con trubbor andrew mccarthy. welcome, gentlemen. >> hi. >> shannon: i want to read something for elizabeth warren running for president 2020. gun violence is an emergency, climate change is emergency, and opioid epidemic is emergency. the ridiculous border wall is not an emergency. is there any worries that the democrats say if he does this we'll claim emergency and take away guns when they control the white house? >> yeah. i didn't like it when barack obama declared an emergency along the way. you don't like it. it's a bad precedent. i understand why the president
is moving this direction. i think he has some legal authority to do it. i consider what is going on, or the look of what is going on the failure of congress, not as trump. but i don't want to give more power to a president. congress has to do its job. there is a political remedy. change congress. >> richard, tonight i talk to someone in the white house who said they know this is a risk but they don't feel like it is because they feel like they are on good legal ground. the question, is it tied up or immediate injunction to put the whole thing on hold? they think they will ultimately win it, is it a good gamble? >> look. the president can declare anything. he can declare that the sky is green. border crossing is at a low, down since 1971 down from 2000. the national security chief testified before the senate a couple of weeks ago when they were asked what is the top security risks are to the
country. none of them mentioned the border wall. so he can say what he wants. the issue will be when he tries to move the money. jason knows as a former member of congress, congress has the authority to say what the money should and should not be used for. they said what it should be used for and they haven't said it should be used for this so-called wall. so i think he is on thin ice. i understand the white house lawyers have to tell him what he wants to hear. that seems to be the way it works. >> shannon: you think you want to hear what reality is because you have to deal with it and you think you want to give the president realistic look at what he is facing. there is no doubt someone files a lawsuit. i got e-mail tonight from says it's drafted and we are waiting for him to do it and we'll file it in the ninth circuit. >> the reality i think that this has the feel of kabuki to me. everybody knows that before the ink is dry on whatever executive order he signs, someone is marching in to the
federal court to get it put on hold. what happens from there the democrats are able to say and the rest of trump opposition to say they didn't cave and they didn't give him what he wanted. he is able to say he fought as hard as he could and was stopped by the courts. everybody still has the political issue for 2020. we go forward. >> andrew mccabe has a book coming out and he is talking about what led him to launch the investigation against the president. there are folks out there who say listen, this is a situation they want to hear from him. democrats and the republicans say we want to get you on the hill and hear what you have to say. jason, you were knee deep in this and you have written a book about it. where do we go from here? >> he did the nearly impossible. he was fired as a federal employee. that was done by his
colleagues who found him so disagreeable, lying, the look of candor they dismissed him. the scathing report from the inspector general. this is not a person that can be trusted. it is interesting that he thought rosenstein was serious about wearing a wire on the president. mr. mccabe saying that there is concrete evidence that the president in collusion and two years later the senate intelligence committee comes together and says no, we have seen no evidence. the guy has issues and ultimately he may end up in jail. >> shannon: today, sarah sanders from the white house obviously not a fan of mccabe says this. andrew mccabe was fired in total disgrace from the f.b.i. because he lied to investigators on multiple occasions including under oath. andrew mccabe has no credibility and is an embarrassment to the men and the women of the f.b.i. and our great country. >> i hope that mccabe is forced to testify before any
house or senate. this guy opened an investigation that we now know not on fake newts, not on mueller or leaks. donald trump jr. said we are trying to get the dirt from russians on hillary, that he would love it. we have seen what they did to the republican -- >> there is nothing illegal about that. >> what is illegal is when manafort gives inside polling data to a russian spy -- >> polling data? that is what you hang your hat on? polling data? really? >> so the russians could know whom to target in michigan, wisconsin, pennsylvania. and the other swing states. that is textbook collusion. >> shannon: or be like hillary clinton and not visit those states or campaign there. >> she was in pennsylvania plenty. >> shannon: andy, final word. >> what i'm surprised about is people make a big deal about this. the "new york times" had a big story on this a few months ago. in is a rehash of old news.
mccabe is trying to sell a book. cbs wants everyone to watch "60 minutes" on sunday night but this stuff of the nine days in may between the time that rosenstein wrote the memo for the president used at least initially as the explanation for firing comey up until the 17th when rosenstein appointed mueller and all the thanks that went on in between talking about the 25th amendment or wiring up against the president. we heard this already. i have no doubt they discussed it. but it's just, you know, they are refreshing something we heard about months ago. >> shannon: i think a lot of us are hoping both mccabe and rosenstein will go to the hill and testify under oath and miles per hours have to decide what they -- americans have to decide what they think. thank you. happy valentine's day. >> thank you. >> shannon: all right. coming up, a woman arrested. she says for calling a transgender woman a man on twitter.
the culture clash coming up britain across the bond anymore soon? that is where it happened. nugel has the answer and he will join us live from london. he is up really late or really early but we are happy to have him, next. when i say, "drivers who switched from geico to esurance saved an average of $412," you probably won't believe me. but you can believe this, real esurance employee nancy abraham. look her up online. esurance, it's surprisingly painless. before discovering nexium 24hr to treat her frequent heartburn, marie could only imagine enjoying freshly squeezed orange juice. now no fruit is forbidden. nexium 24hr stops acid before it starts for all-day, all-night protection. can you imagine 24 hours without heartburn?

children and locking her away for hours. she claims it's because she called a transgender woman a man on social media. now this happened in the u.k. let's go there to nigel for more on the story. it's great to have you with us tonight and tomorrow morning for you. >> yeah. it's unbelievable. what we have going on at the moment here is the triumph of ideology over biology. if you make a mistake of calling someone a sex that is different to what they believe it ought to be, then you finish up being guilty of hate crime. i think in america your rights to free speech that such you are not yet in the position. but it's crazy that a few weeks ago a school just outside london was teaching young children that boys can have periods, too. i mean the whole thing has gone mad. i think for young children growing up in a world like this, it's very, very confusing.
we are now seeing increasing numbers of young people changing orientation. i think simply because we are confusing them. >> well, more on the twitter case. the woman who got in trouble, she says she was arrested in front of her 10-year-old us atistic child and the infant she -- austic child and the infant she was breastfeeding. she says she holds a genuine and a reasonable belief that a human cannot practically speaking change sex. the individual who is the victim stephanie haden on twitter says this -- the subject of the police report gave unauthorized information about me. so they are still fighting about what the case was about but the woman who went to jail was told you can't use a male known to refer to this person. you can't refer to the former life as a male. you can't post any personal information.
>> that is right. this is changing the english language. with retaking away any male or feel references to anything or anyone for fear of causing offense or breaching hate speech laws. in london we now have a thousand police officers who spend every single day chasing down potential hate speech against transgender community or any other minority group. that is going on when knife crimes means we are a more dangerous city than new york or other part of the world. political correctness reaching a level as i say where we are denying basic biology. it's absolutely crazy. i do believe at some point the pendulum much swing back. >> let us know if you get arrested. we'll stay on it. >> i will. >> shannon: great to hear from you. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> shannon: up next, the
midnight hero. a special valentine. and president trump getting pressure from one of his daughter-in-laws. what laura trump says could help the president in the polls and it's nothing to bark at, folks. em the same, but some give their clients cookie cutter portfolios. fisher investments tailors portfolios to your goals and needs. some only call when they have something to sell. fisher calls regularly so you stay informed. and while some advisors are happy to earn commissions whether you do well or not. fisher investments fees are structured so we do better when you do better. maybe that's why most of our clients come from other money managers. fisher investments. clearly better money management. thisyeah.ice. yeah, this is nice.
