$250 million. steve: that's right. our first two stories this morning first about the covington situation and then about jussi smollett out in chicago essentially in the rush to judgment the mainstream media apparently got a couple of stories really wrong. remember, the early video showed and the story was that that young man in the maga cap was mocking the native american who marched up to him as we learned later. according to the lawsuit, they are -- the post targeted him and bullied him because he was the white catholic high school student wearing the maga cap on that field trip on january 18th. brian: the lawyer gave everybody time to apologize and retract people like -- that condemned him and others. many did. the post didn't. this is what sam is saying against the post and the reason for him going forward. the post ignored basic journalistic standards because it wanted to advance a well-known and easily documented biased agenda against president trump.
the post bull idea an innocent child absolute disregard for the pain and destruction its attacks would cause to his life and i imagine he is still experiencing today. ainsley: they say the post must be dealt with the same way every bully is dealt with that is hold the bully fully accountable for its wrongdoing. we need to teach the post a lesson that it will never forget and the amount 250 million is because that's the amount that jeff bezos paid for the paper, the richest man in america, for the post when his company, nash holdings purchased the newspaper in 2013. steve: this certainly is going to get their attention. the paper has put out a statement and they say reviewing a copy the lawsuit, and we plan to mount a vigorous defense. now. brian: good job. there is a loft video to back up with the kid did. how many angles do we see five to 10. steve: the lawyers put together about a 15-minute video it's all together and it tells a story like we have never seen before. now, you might wonder why
are they going after "the washington post" first? well, you know, jeff bezos is the richest guyed in the world and they have a beef with him, the covington school. ainsley: they said specifically because of the newspaper said quote that he accosted phillips. swarming him and intimidating. blocked phillips path refused to allow him to retreat. taunting and indigenous crowd engaged in improper conduct. steve: there is a list of 50 other media figures and celebrities and media outlets and reporters and politicians who may be served with lawsuits. you've got to figure that they are probably going after the post because it's owned by the guy with the most money in the united states. and obviously, this is getting a lot of attention on this wednesday morning. brian: by the way the people who started the hostility black israelites seem to be getting a total pass if you see some of the things they said to start the baiting against these kids because they happen to be kids and white is inexciewivelg. i don't know why we are just allowing this to happen. if you walk on a street
corner on 42 or 44th you see the guys screaming at you all the time. steve: rush to judgment to get the story out and somebody got it wrong. that's the case in this story, too. ainsley: you mentioned that story and you mentioned another story we are covering jussi smollett story. the empire actor could soon be handed an arrest warrant. that's the latest twist in the investigation into the alleged hate crime attack on smollett. steve: matt finn is live in chicago with new information about the actor's criminal record -- wait, he has a criminal record, matt? >> yes. actually documents obtained by fox news indicate that smollett was convicted of a 2007 dui in los angeles in which he did plead no condition test to giving false information to police. here in chicago it's becoming increasingly apparent that chicago police are trying to get a portion of this current case in front of a brand jury. whether that's to obtain a subpoena or some type of warrant. fox news has learned that the two brothers were set to have their testimony locked in before a grand jury but
that did not happen. two sources tell us smollett's legal team provided some type of information that paused the grand jury process. and this morning chicago police are still waiting for jussi smollett to respond to their request for a follow-up interview since this story took a dramatic turn. smollett's crisis manager says he did not talk to police on monday and did not talk to them yet again on tuesday. also on tuesday, cook county's states attorneys kim fox recused herself from this case. statements say she might personally know some of the witnesses too well. police say they investigated a tip yesterday that the brothers were seen inside of smollett's building on the night of the alleged attack but they ruled that tip unfounded. brian, ainsley, steve. steve: mr. finn, thank you very much. apparently according to cbs chicago, they're say that the brothers have told the police that in addition to staging the attack where he paid $3,500 to them and said okay, when you come back, i will give you another 500.
apparently they told out police that jussi was involved in creating that racist letter, too. and ultimately he became disappointed it didn't make a bigger splash. so then that's when they decided you know what? let's do something else. let's fake this attack. ainsley: there are reports that say that he made that whole letter. and then sent it to himself where he was working on set. and so they are investigating that. they are going to the postal service. the fbi, you know, is looking into that. brian: federal case and local case and think about all the man hours and all the other crimes in chicago they could have been working on. meanwhile 7 minutes after the hour another fbi guy disgraced major book tour and getting himself in trouble in the process. reminds me of james comey. you can't agree with what james comey is saying and agree with andrew mccabe. you can't agree with james baker and james comey and andrew mccabe. yesterday one of the stops wasview. another stop was cnn as he continues a tact president while his story doesn't add up. he doesn't seem to be able to remember why he was
unable to tell the truth three times to the inspector general. he doesn't steam remember about an insurance plan when he went with peter strzok and ladies and gentlemen. he remembers exactly his interactions with the president. watch. >> do you still believe the president could be a russian asset? >> >> i think it's possible. i think that's why we started our investigation. >> is there anything in the last year that makes you less suspicious of the president? >> no. [laughter] >> did i answer too quickly? >> no. >> he said that conversation about the 25th amendment did not represent a potential coup. he said it was not very coupe, that conversation. steve: he also didn't put it in his book. something everybody was talking about was not actually put into the book. keep in mind, the inspector general, the guy who looxz over the entire department of justice, he is the guy who said you have got to 2350eur this guy because he broke all the rules. trey gowdy former chairman of the house oversight committee took a look at
what he implied that the russian -- that the president could be a russian asset and said this on the martha show last night. >> if thinking that jim comey is not a good fbi director is tantamount to being an agent of russia. list all the agents of russia, chuck schumer, nancy pelosi, rod rosenstein who wrote the memo getting rid of comey. michael horowitz the inspector general. he gets rid of comey, replaces him with a comey ache light who not only continuals the probe but expands it. so if his goal was to obstruct a russia investigation. gosh, he did a terrible job. brian: very interesting and very sarcastic. i get it other thing he brought up on march that's show so interesting when i through out i was so concerned about being asset of russia i launched a counterintelligence investigation and i briefed the gang c of 8. we never heard anything about that.
did they express any concern? nobody looked to stop me. that's just the thing. he came ton say because devin nunes and others, they are not allowed to talk about what the fbi briefs them with. so they can't even come back and say he never briefed me. did brief me. i was concerned, i wasn't concerned. he wanted to say something that can't be challenged. ainsley: he was accused of being the source for the "new york times" he told meghan mccain yesterday i was not the source. that's why he got fired. brian: this was the most telling. he called in to fray the inspector general. he says the inspector general might -- when he came out and said i lied three times. he might have been pressured by jeff sessions because president was will. the inspector general was appointed by barack obama. he has never met the president of the united states. this is the first time we can remember an inspector general's integrity being called out by mr. law and order andy mccabe. steve: he is out there trying to officially sell his book that came out yesterday. it's embarrassing for him to be fired by the fbi. what's he doing you?
noe that inspector general thing? i'm considering suing them to get my job back. clear his name. what do you think? email us, firstname.lastname@example.org. all right. ainsley: meanwhile we have headlines and jillian is over there in her pretty yellow dress. jillian: and your hair cut looks fantastic. gentlemen, you always look great. get you cottrell up on fox news alert we are following for you. police officer is fighting for his life after getting stabbed in the neck. started road rage incident that spilled over into a parking lot in mississippi. off-duty officer shooting and killing the other driver after he was attacked with a knife. neither of them have been identified. the police officer is in critical condition. president trump will nominate jeff rosen as his next deputy attorney general. rosen is currently the deputy transportation secretary. he previously served as general counsel for the department. he was a partner at a chicago-based law firm with attorney general william barr. deputy attorney general rod

♪ brian: democratic socialist bernie sanders has officially entered the 2020 race. president trump was quick to respond. >> i think he missed his time. what happened to bernie maybe was not so nice. i think he was taken advantage of. he ran great four years ago, and he was not treated with respect by clinton.
you have got a lot of people running, but only one person is going to win. i hope you know who that person is. brian: what will be different this time around? let's ask senior advisor to the bernie sanders campaign then and now chuck rocha. have you big news how his announcement was received. >> it was amazing ground swell of support last night. i have never seen anything like it. i have been doing campaigns for 29 years. we raised over $4 million last night from hundreds of thousands of individual donors. i have talked about the problem of money in politics and fat cats on wall street having way too much control. when you start empowering regular people all across the country and they are giving you 5, 10, $20. it's a big shot in the arm and boost to if i campaign. bernie sanders has capitalized on that and it shows his message works. brian: you had a much different field. nobody cared about governor o'malley. nobody cared about lincoln chafee and he had incumbent
that was just basically looking to walk through in hillary clinton. you already got eight opponents already,ible of which have the same policies and they are a lot younger than your guy. what makes your guy different? >> so, i think i would remind all of your viewers exactly how donald trump won the republican nomination when we had debates junior debates and field debates. we're going to have the same issue on the democratic side so that means that the vote is going to be split 10 ways 15 ways. 20 ways. guess which candidate has the core base of support that follows him and i just explained to you that we raised $4 million in 24 hours or more. that's the biggest difference because all the votes are going to be split up in so many different ways. >> what is the perfect model to run on venezuela or cuba? >> i think fdr is the best model. they called fdr a socialist for creating social security. yes, brian, i realize we were in a depression but called lyndon b. johnson a socialist for creating medicare. we want to empower people and not wall street.
i think people and i give donald trump some credit on this. he spoke to people. he thought that people would believe him that he would actually change things. bernie sanders is that person who is out there with that message. brian: chuck, he is not even a democrat? he has his own reprisal to the president's state of the union address. he doesn't even march within those circles. why is the party even letting him in? >> you have a great point. you know, he did a state of the union himself to just people who subscribe to his facebook page and people made all of this big brouhaha it was after stacey abrams who we respect immensely. bernie sanders is a democratic socialist and he has been caucusing with the democrats in the senate for years. brian: all right. i guess we have to go. a lot to discuss a lot of spending and a lot of give aways and a lot of taxes are going up. but people are responding on the left. chuck rocha i look forward to seeing you and that hat again soon. >> thank you, brian. brian: supporters. >> people who want the wall
are not patriots. they are not people who love this country. brian: all right. tomi lahren fired up about this. she is thought los angeles, too. she will join us. a big deal. that's why there's otezla. otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats differently. for psoriasis, 75% clearer skin is achievable, with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. for psoriatic arthritis, otezla is proven to reduce joint swelling, tenderness, and pain. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment.

a get your questions answered by awesome experts store. it's a now there's one store that connects your life like never before store. the xfinity store is here. and it's simple, easy, awesome. brian: some quick headlines. i got here just in time. the state department making position on foreign fighters clear as an alabama mom turned isis wife pleads to come home. the spokesperson would not address the american woman's case specifically but says terrorists should be returned to their home countries to be prosecuted and to prevent them from returning to the battle field. and there she is. she has a kid. and the mother of a man beheaded by isis is demanding that the american isis bride face justice. diane folly says she needs to be held accountable. listen. >> hoda and the man thousands of others isis
fighters who have promoted terrorism need to be held accountable. brian: absolutely. ainsley, steve? steve: the media are getting fired fbi director andy mccabe a platform to attack the current president. >> we were all operating under incredible stress. we were all grappling with this idea that we have a president who we think may have committed obstruction of justice. >> that the president himself might in fact be a threat to the united states national security. >> you know, i was experiencing in the oval office some of those same things that i had seen happen on the streets, right? i had seen the relationship between the leader of the organization and those around him who carry out the rules. ainsley: while mccabe defends the possible illegal behavior in the fbi and the doj the "new york times" is calling out the president for a, quote, secret assault on the machinery of federal
law enforcement. here to react is former presidential writer for george w. bush ned ryun. good to see you. >> good to be with you guys. ainsley: the "new york times" is all in on this. is it unusual for the president? he is defending himself against these attacks and these investigations. >> well, first of all, ainsley i have to point out how many have decided to give aid and comfort to the enemies of this administration and literally just be a pop granda machine for the deep state. but they claim it's unusual for trump to be attacking the investigations. i will tell you what's unusual is the fact that we spun up the surveillance state and counterintelligence operation against a sitting president of the united states based off a fake dossier. other thing that's striking you see andrew mccabe with book tour how bifurcated our legal system has become under these guys. cohen, flynn, stone papadopoulos were all lying to federal investigators. andrew mccabe lied full
mel times he gets to kick start book tour it's insane. steve: trying to sue the department of justice unjustly fired from his job for lying and leaking. but then, i know, it's been so delicious in listening over the last couple days to mr. mccabe, ned, just to hear him talk about i would never leak in not authorized by my job. remember how james comey kept those documents so he could get to his friend the lawyer who became support of his legal defense team so they could give them to the "new york times" and start the investigation with the special prosecutor. >> again, this is incredible, steve, when you think about this whole investigation was spun up on a hoax, a lie, illegal leaks. the fake dossier. it's the foundation. only in washington, d.c. with the propaganda mainstream media would any of this make sense. in the real world, you know, i look at a lot of this stuff i think the clintons
and dnc facilitated a russian misinformation campaign when you look at bruce ohr's testimony, christopher steele's main source was ex-russian intelligence officer and fusion gps was working for the family of a russian oligarch in the summer of 2016. this is insane and mind mummingly stupid. the thing that's really concerning to meet doj and fbi are supposed to be guardians of the rule of law this and is one of the basic foundations of our republic. i think they have made a mockery of it and equal application of law. and that has some really serious implications for us moving forward. ainsley: they are not supposed to be leaking to reporters and that's exactly why he got fired and that came down from the inspector general he defended himself yesterday on the view. meghan mccain a lot of people on social media are saying kudos for meghan mccain for not holding back. watch this exchange. >> i would like you to say right here on national tv that you are not a source for the "new york times." you were never a source for the "new york times" or any other publication considering that's what you are accused of lying about.
basically were you ever a leaker to the "new york times." >> absolutely not. no, not in any time ever. >> then why did james comey deny the claim that he approved your leak to the press. >> i don't know why jim comey doesn't remember the conversations we had in the same way i do. ainsley: ned? >> is he a known liar. this is why michael horowitz, inspector general, recommended criminal prosecution against andrew mccabe. i will say this last thing. wait until you see the fisa report that horowitz is going to release, i think in april, about the fisa abuse is based off the fake dossier in which mccabe was also heavily involved. we have a lot to really discuss and get to the bottom of what actually happened the last couple years. steve: let's hope they are trying to get to the bottom of it because we would all like some answers. ned ryun, thank you very much for joining us live. ainsley: thank you. >> thanks, guys. steve: new york senator kristin gillibrand tried connecting with voters in
iowa. one person just not so interested. >> in the grassroots. >> sorry, i'm going to get some ranch.

snowplow system of their own. steve: that's great. >> the independence fund was gracious enough to do some upgrades to my chair and that new snow blade setup was one of them. brian: noah, what's it like having someone so inspirational in your neighborhood? he has been through -- your heart stop i understand, sergeant, after you got shot. later you have your knee removed. go through brain cancer. what's it like having someone like him in your community? >> it's amazing. always good to have positive reinforcement in the community. so it's nice having him. brian: sergeant, what has it meant to you, this community? >> you know, honestly, i have a lot of admiration for noah. it really shows how a community can come together and how, you know, a younger generation and now i try not to use this too much but an older generation like myself can really, you know, come
together and age doesn't matter. it's just a sense of that camaraderie of the military community and us being able to do this together. ainsley: sergeant, you are a good representation of the military. noah, you are just precious. you are, i guess, a teenage boy. you are a wonderful person and you will grow up to be a spectacular individual because you have a great neighbor as an influence in your life. thank you both for being with us. god bless you. >> thank you for having us. steve: you bet. the track chair did change his life, obviously. if people would like to know more about the independence fund that provided it, their website, i believe is right there independence fund.org. guys, thank you very much. have great day out there in omaha. >> you have a great day. steve: you betcha. thank you, sir. meanwhile straight ahead, the bernie sanders campaign feeling the return of the bern. they raised more than $4 million in half a day. how do millennials like his policies?

he was taken advantage of. he ran great four years ago and he was not treated with respect by clinton. and that was too bad. i thought what happened to bernie sanders four years ago was quite sad as it pertains to our country. so we will see how he does. steve: four years ago the system was rigged against bernie and for hillary. we all know that now. and so now what the democrats are trying to do is because bernie sanders was so effective and you look at the dialogue on the progressive side. it's a lot of what he has been talking about over the last four years. they are trying to outbernie bernie. when you look at alexandria ocasio-cortez's green new deal. which has been embraced by a lot of the progressives. you know, and bernie sanders likes many of the same things as well. barney frank, very powerful former politician from the commonwealth of massachusetts says the problem is gril would be terrible for the democrats.
>> i think the green new deal would be a loser. i do not think that people are going to be advocating that whole package. there's an argument that you don't destabilize a society by doing too much change at once. and i don't think -- and partly weave people who are skeptical of government. people like me who do want to expand the government in some areas need to understand that we have to show how that works. you have to do it in pieces as you show it has worked. brian: couple things to bernie sanders credit he made $4 million in one day according to rocha. fundraising kamala harris, everyone is lauding foreher her start. this goes way past her. i'm very curious to see what bernie sanders is going to be like when he starts having real pontsd who hit him and say have you accomplished nothing legislatively in your entire career. you are not really a democrat. you are using our apparatus. you seem to be contradicting
a lot of leadership and i think when he has people hitting him and it's not donald trump, i think he is going to realize it's a brand new year. ainsley: everything is proposing is going to bankrupt the government. how are we going to pay for all of this? strife steve that is it. there is division form not guilty democratic party. moderate democrats like amy klobuchar and sherrod brown who say, look, all these other democrats are for healthcare for all. we can't do that it's god to be incremental just like barney frank. ainsley: i would love to wave a magic wand and give everyone four years of. i support two years of community college unfortunately we can't afford to do four years. brian: elizabeth warren wealth tax and give free preschool. i would like to admit something on television i never went to preschool. ainsley: you didn't? you started at 5. brian: i was willing to start at kindergarten part time. you know your colors you can go home now. ainsley: isn't it all states you? don't have to send your kids
to preschool that's a parent's decision. a lot of parents in new york do 2. ainsley: there are 2-year-old programs. brian: they interviewed 3-year-olds. interviewed my son to get into preschool when four when he was three. ainsley: we need to do as parents. let them play and have fun. brian: can we go back and do preschool now? is it too late? steve: another free something. as you can hear, we have a personal history where we don't quite understand it meanwhile, this is something we don't we d do have somethingo understand. that covington high school was on a school trip for the march for life. they were standing right there and nathan phillips that native american activist walked right up. the rush to judgment was these young men in the maga hats were mocking him and they were excoriated. the students were. well, now, since the video has come out that is pretty
much exonerated them. now mr. nick sandmann's family has sued the first target "the washington post." they want a quarter will a billion dollars for what they did. ainsley: they are seeking justice. they say why that amount of money 250 million? that's the amount that jeff bezos the world's richest man paid in cash for the post when he purchased the newspaper in 2013. they are trying to teach the post a lesson. and must be dealt with the same way every bully is dealt with that is to hold the bully accountable for wrongdoing. brian: at love celebrities jumped right on and started ridicules these kids. i wonder if they walked it back and apologized could they be next? ainsley: they were sent letters. brian: here is what sandman wrote as part of his suit against the post. the post ignored basic journalistic standards it wanted to advance well known and easily documented bias against president trump. the post bull idea an innocent child with an absolute disregard for his pain and destruction attacks
would cause to his life. listen, like it or not, when this kid applies to college. every time someone brings up covington and kentucky, everyone is going to know exactly what everybody is talking about for the foreseeable future. ainsley: 250 million. probably settle. get half of that money? but he might have trouble getting a job down the road. he has to pay his attorney and going to affect him for the rest of his life. steve: this is the nature internet there are stories out there that are true and stories that are not true. obviously what they're trying to do is trying to correct the record. elle linwood his attorney says there are over 50 celebrities, media outlets reporters and politicians who may be served with lawsuits as well. "the washington post" gave this statement to fox news regarding the lawsuit. we are planning to mount a vigorous defense. nonetheless what they are trying to do is clear that kid's name and the names of all the covington students so people will know what actually happened. ainsley: watch this. there is a little boy in texas benton stephens
selling hot chocolate for $2 and marshmallows and using that money to help build a wall. watch. >> hot chocolate stand helping trump build the wall. >> he has had a lot of supporters online and some against you. are you going to stop selling, doing the stand deal. >> i'm not going to stop the stand until the wall is built. steve: there you are. his parents apparently members of the rnc and dinner table talk has influenced young benton. over two days he raised $1,400 to help build a wall on our southern border. ainsley: look at nancy pelosi's picture on there. >> those marshmallows are extra 50 cents for those. cup of ho chocolate 4 bucks. some adults are happy to see him. according to his family some are mad. one referred to him as
little hitler. ainsley: that's harsh. brian: between that and maga attacks and fake maga attacks amazing what's going on. steve: at the inauguration some women in pink accosted him and complained about his maga cap. parents said they wanted it to be a learning experience. figure out what politics are all about in this country. brian: and taking action. he wants to help. ainsley: he has raised up to $5,000 now. isn't there a go fund me page. brian: there is. ainsley: trying to raise money to go to the wall. does he send it to washington? steve: good question. i think they got up to 20 million. what do you think about that story where they called him a little hitler because he was trying to raise money for wall. email us at email@example.com. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us. get you caught up on the story we have been following for a while in colorado. fiancee the missing colorado mom will stand trial for her murder. crystal keny. a woman claiming to be

be honest socialism is losing edge particularly among millennials. with that said a country of 300 million. 330 million people, if there are only about 50,000 registered democratic socialists. so, while the term is losing its edge, the increase in registration and affiliation with that actual part of the party isn't skyrocketing but people like what bernie sanders has to say. steve: keep in mind, is he not even a democrat. he's an independent who caucuses with the democrats. you like the fact he was very popular four years ago and a lot of his ideas people are outrunning bernie. >> a lot of millennials are going to be incredibly excited about bernie this cycle. steve: why is that because he stands for free everything? >> no. because we are facing insurmountable challenges as a generation. we will be worse off than our parents. we are facing crushing debt. we are facing stagnant wages.
we are facing a society that can't even afford too pay for family medical leave. child care and these are issues that bernie actually has broad solutions to address. steve: but his solutions are expensive. where does the money come from? >> i think that the money comes from taxing wealthy americans who can afford to pay more to help everyone in our society. and generations to come. steve: what's that number? >> that number is. steve: a really rich person should pay how much? >> i think if we went up to a 70% tax. steve: ugh. >> we would see a lot more ability for our generation to sustain jobs and our families down the line. steve: okay. joseph, back when taxes in the united states the highest march jingle bell rates were like 70, 80, 90% there were a million loopholes and nobody actually paid that are the bernie ideas sustainable or is it a great idea on the campaign trail? >> i think the reality is that socialism has literally never worked in the history of the world. have the tax rate go up to
100 percent still not pay for the pittance of the ideas being proposed. i think the reality is bernie sanders is going to have a lot of difficulty. last year last cycle he got to be the candidate who was not hillary clinton. now, everyone is not hillary clinton. and i think that the candidate who is liberal politics going to find himself in a field where everyone is saying get today and work out tomorrow. steve: look at the field of democrats right now. you have got for instance have you amy klobuchar and sherrod brown they say you know healthcare for all would be a great idea we can't do it all at once it would have to be incremental and howard schultz, the billionaire from starbucks. he says green new deal not realistic, immoral. healthcare for all doesn't make sense. so while a lot of people are thinking okay, that's a great idea. there are people in his own party adopted party if the
democrats let him. >> even kamala harris who champions getting rid of private insurance companies went say she is a democratic socialist. she understands there is a fine line. and i can't fully blame the millennials for who think they support socialism. they came to adulthood during the time of the financial crisis and i really do blame the failed education system. lack of specific education that is having them believe this is a better way forward. steve: real quickly. take a look at a poll the view of millennials on socialism. about a third of millennials do like it. unfavorable it looks like about 46% say they don't like it. and then the other answers right there as well lightning round one at a time. at this point a little under 10 so far have declared they
are interested in running on the democratic side. who is the biggest challenge to the president. >> i think right now it's a little early to say. steve: have to pick one. >> there are three people i would say top tier candidate. bernie sanders, he raised $4 billion overnight from 140,000 individual voters. kamala harris another top tier and elizabeth warren they are all occupying that progressive wing. steve: maliyah. >> i think i agree with nathan across the board. very exciting our our candidates have by 30 points. steve: okay, joseph? >> one candidate keep the candidates up at night is probably amy klobuchar. resonates with the largest voice of americans. realistically end up picking bernie sanders only thing for certain president trump might not just win he will probably win the popular vote. steve: you like amy klobuchar because she is a moderate. during the primary generally you have to be more extreme. >> the reality is, to me i'm a republican so i think they are all probably failed
ideas but i think the hard truth is that amy klobuchar probably speaks more in step with the vast voice of americans. steve: finally alison. >> for a long time howard schultz i think would be keeping donald trump up at night. steve: a chicken in every pot and latte in every kitchen. steve: joseph, alison, thank you very much. it is now 19 minutes -- 21 minutes before the top of the hour. sorry about that. it's digital, jillian. jillian: very difficult to tell the times sometimes. googood morning, steve. today the nypd detective shot and killed by friendly fire will be laid to rest. nypd flag seen draped over brian simonson's casket as honor guard carried it into a church on long island. hundreds of family members, friends, even strangers lining tomb say final goodbyes to the officers who nickname was smiles. detective simonson was killed responding to a

their nation. i wish these people would hold the drug cartels accountable for putting all these people at risk and all these aliens that die while they are coming across the border. but, again, these are the results when people vilify the work of the border patrol and work. ainsley: how did they get inside and have a protest inside the museum and deface some of the pictures and some of the items in the museum? >> well, this museum has been in the community since 1985. it's a public museum part-time are welcome. schools out there go out to the museum so the students can learn the history of the u.s. border patrol. and they made access. they had access to the museum and instead of honoring our agents they vandalized the museum and it's very, very unfortunate. brian: we got the photos and video. someone going to pursue thi this? >> we hope people are
prosecuted to the full extent of the law. border patrol agents part of the border community. born and raised in border communities. why are they disrespecting their own community members? steve: hector, clearly the museum was a target. people went in and had this protest. to you as a border patrol representative feel like a target as well? >> well, we have been targeted by members of congress. we have been targeted by the fake news media and that is very unfortunate. that needs to stop. our border patrol agents do an amazing job day in and day out rescuing people left behind by human smugglers. rescuing people that are victims of sex trafficking and human trafficking. this is definitely a show of disrespect for law and order. brian: is it time to take down the wall, the fence because it's immoral? is it president making up a crisis? >> we see it's a humanitarian crisis on the border. we see people being victimized by the cartels
and human smugglers. it needs to stop. we need to make sure our members of congress get serious about this. recognize there is an emergency on the border. ainsley: has the wall in el paso made you safer and are new support of a wall. >> of course. we have been advocating for physical barriers along the border strategic locations. unfortunately some people on the left and in the fake news media they try to create this false fairive thanarrative.border patrol agend walls to keep borders safe and border patrol agents as well. beto o'rourke would take the fence down is he running than platform. steve: he is from el paso. heck tore thank you very much. brian: unbelievable. thanks, hector. meanwhile, the field of democrats running in 2020 may look diverse. one former naacp leader says they are smelling the same old politics. he will explain. >> sesame street comes to

"the washington post" received yesterday that the famous attorney from atlanta, lynwood, who is representing nick samond from "washington post," suing $250,348. they claim that he bullied nick
because he was the white catholic student wearing a maga hat on a field trip. the story was that he and others were mocking the native-american. as more video came out, abundantly clear that initial story all wrong. ainsley: suing for $250 million. that is how much jeff bezos the richest person, says in the lawsuit paid for the post in cash in 2013. the president tweeting about it, covington students suing wapo, "washington post." go get them, nick, fake news. steve: "washington post" put out a statement. reviewing the copy of the lawsuit and we plan to mount a vigorous defense. the post proved itself to be a loud and aggressive with a bully pulpit n this country our society is dedicated to protection of children regardless of color of their skin, religious beliefs or the cap they wear.
the post did not care about protecting nicholas. they raced with reckless disregard to the facts and truth. in this day and time there is premium for being first and loudest mia bully. they want $250 million because of the rush to judgment. brian: anti-trump movement continues. andy mccabe has a book out. would you think a guy with mr. law and order would wait for an investigation to finish went out with his view of the a investigation of the president united states and reasons behind it. anything he does wrong he doesn't really remember. when peter strzok name come up, lisa page come up, their text messages are empirical evidence that they hate the president, he said they are good people made bad decisions but don't think the biases leaked into any of their investigation. here is a little of his book tour as he continues to attack the president, who got him elected and what he might be subservient to. >> still believe the president could be a russian asset?
>> i think it is possible. i think that is why we started our investigation. >> is there anything in the last two years that makes you less suspicious of the president? >> no. [laughter]. did i answer too quickly? >> no. steve: keep in mind, he is out promoting this book, but he got fired from the department of justice because of he had leaked some information to the washington, to the "wall street journal" that is, to say, yesterday, ainsley brought this up earlier, meghan mccain had him in the hot chair. actually had him grilled a little bit. ainsley: she didn't hold back. watch this. >> i would like you to say right here on national tv that you were not a source for "the new york times," you were never a source for "the new york times" or any other publication considering that is what you're accused of lying about? basically were you ever a leaker to the "new york times"? >> absolutely not. not in anytime ever. >> why did james comey denied
the claim that he approved your liking to the press? >> i don't know why jim comey doesn't remember the conversations we had in the same way i do. brian: so understanding with james comey not understanding things the way he does, but not understanding of the president having a different perception of their interactions. he is also not understanding that the inspector general, no one really said had a bias, hired by president obama, to investigate what took place about to come up with a further investigation, this michael horowitz, he says, well, the inspector general who said you lied three times, recommended you get fired, criminal referral, where you could end up, in criminal court, he doesn't understand, well he might have been pressured by the attorney general because the president wanted him to be. no one i know has ever said the inspector general sanctity and honnessty was in question. that is what his answer is. ainsley: interesting how he goes on media blitz trying to sell books and liberal media -- brian: loves him. ainsley: loves the story, because he doesn't like the president. he was trying to out of the president using the 25th
amendment allegedly. meghan mccain says that to him, probably only one, a few people have questioned him to his face all social media, kudos to you, meghan mccain for asking him the tough questions. steve: one thing about the fact he revealed chats between him and rod rosenstein and others regarding using 25th amendment to get rid of the president of the united states, you know, you would think that the administration would love that because it continues the narrative that is out there that there is a deep state out there, highest reaches of government that are working against the president. then when you see andy mccabe on television, yeah i had this conversation, trying to figure out how to do it, the president and his team say, see, that is exactly what we've been talking about the last two years. there is a deep state and he is proving it. brian: has not had a good answer to the question why his wife got $680,000 from the hillary clinton campaign.
they never met. state senate race is pretty substantial. why $140 million goes to the clinton foundation, from russia, but hillary clinton didn't raise up any eyebrows without any of her possibly being compromised by that country. we also don't know about an investigation that happened july 5th where hillary clinton was questioned but not under oath with nobody taping it at all. she doesn't, no one ever asks these questions to him. the dossier was the foundation of all of it, barely comes up in any of this examination. steve: he is on a book tour if he likes to stop by the couch. we have a space here. ainsley: jillian with headlines. jillian: let's get you caught up on latest of story we've been following.

after 15 weeks. that was later ruled unconstitutional though the state is appealing that. will this new law, which is even more strict stand up to a court challenge which undoubtedly would happen? mississippi governor phil bryant joins us from jackson, mississippi. governor, good morning to you. >> good morning, steve, glad to be with you. steve: good to be with you. what would this heartbeat bill do? >> it will do what medical science has proven from the beginning, a heartbeat is the beginning of life. when the child lives through detection of that the heartbeat six to nine weeks, you can't destroy that life, can't take that life in the womb. it would hold the doctor responsible through the licensure procedure if the doctor disobeyed that. if the doctor in writing did not notify the patient that the child had a heartbeat. other than the life of the mother, the abortion at that point would be prohibited in mississippi. steve: phil, what do you make of these other states, famously now
the commonwealth of virginia, they were proposing essentially a day of birth abortion, for that to be legal? you've got very late-term abortion in number of states including new york state where i'm sitting and new jersey where i live. what are these lawmakers trying to do? >> i think what they're trying to do is what many of the democrats want to do, they want to grow the culture of death, if you will. they want to be able to say take the life of a child at anytime, moments before the birth of that child, even as we heard some elected officials talk about after that child was born, making it comfortable, then taking their life. this is shocked the senses of this nation. it has shown a light on exactly what the endgame would be to be able to have infanticide if you will, across this nation upon just the demand of someone that wants to take the life of a child. we think, in a strange way they
are going to help our movement by shocking people into realizing just how horrific this movement has become, taking the life of a child moments before it is born. viability, having a heartbeat. it is truly shocking and we're going to try to stop it here in mississippi and other states around the nation. look at ohio, governor dewine says he will sign the bill that governor kasich vetoed. florida, tennessee, kentucky, the movement is spreading. we're proud to begin it here in the state of mississippi. steve: not just mississippi, governor. look at the national polls, a majority of americans are squarely against very late-term abortion. women should have a right to an abortion but it shoulding -- should be earlier than later. >> if particularly if you ask millenials, majority of americans say absolutely not. late-term abortion is something
they're against. ed officials should be against. science is on our side. son know grabs that have been developed show the development of that fetus far beyond anything we can imagine at very early ages this is human being, they have rights bestowed upon them. rights of people not even citizens of this united states, we want to give them every right afforded to citizen of the united states, but that child within the womb we'll take all their rights to live away. steve: in mississippi you're about to pass the heartbeat bill out of both houses. you will sign i. thank you for dropping by from mississippi. >> thank you, steve. always enjoy it. steve: 8:20 here in new york city, the field of democrats running in 2020 looks diverse but one former naacp leader says they're selling the same old policies. he will explain that next. plus this top housing and urban development staffer is living in public housing.

they don't want any types of changes as far as their voting bloc is concerned. they're scared to death now, that there is an awakening going on, in the minority community. and the identity politics which has been the foundation of racism in this country, since the end of slavery, is the tool that they are using to maintain control. over that voting bloc. ainsley: why is that. why is that message, why is it dangerous for the democrats, for the people who go to the polls, think it's a good message. what do you say to them? >> the good news about the message that the progressive liberals are placing in the american field right now, in the population of america is that, identity politics and progressism, socialism will implode upon itself. before our very eyes, before our american eyes we are seeing how it is imploding.
and so i certainly hope that america continues to watch them make fools of themselves. brian: i mean they definitely take the black vote for granted. i don't think anyone doubts that. they also say, we'll give you free health care, free preschool, give you free college, why wouldn't you vote for that? by the way the successful rich people are cheating, they don't want to pay their fair share. in fact the term is freeloaders. look at the stats, president of the united states since he took over, some say coincidence, i doubt it, a lot of his policies are dramatic. you have low minority unemployment. more back to work, less food stamps. when he cracks down on illegal immigration he is helping the working class more than anybody else. >> in the midst of economic prosperity, and you have named point by point the things that this president has done in over, in less than two years, we see 300,000 jobs added just last month. we see the lowest unemployment rate in this country. we're in the midst of
prosperity. and americans are beginning to be very tired of being victimized by ideas that we are not a great country. and that we are a country of losers. this is the message that progressive liberalism does in fact put forth. freedom works, our organization, we have a mission in order to educate and build the largest grassroots organization in the nation and that is to let people know that american freedom is something that is given to us as an endowment in our founding documents. and americans, we should take back the opportunity to pursue our lives, our liberty, and our happiness. socialism, democratic socialism, or any otherwise will definitely rob the american people of that great gift that god has given to us. ainsley: reverend, have you always felt like this? if not, when was the turning point for you? >> the turning point for me was back in 1989 when i was
president of the naacp in garland, texas. i was asked to speak at a pro-choice rally by directive came down from dr. benjamin hooks, the former executive director of the naacp. god rest his soul but i could not do it because of my core value beliefs. i noticed that my star that was rising rapidly in the organization abruptly began to set. and i said to my wife, jane, you know, they don't just want to control the agenda, they want to control me and use my as a tool to control these people. and so with that epiphany, i began a journey toward conservatism and i began a journey toward where we are today. brian: you know what? if your theory is correct, could be why almost every candidate goes out of their way to call the president a racist, xenophobe, sexist, the worst possible descriptions they might be getting panicked the minority

♪ brian: we've just learned "empire" actor jussie smollett could be soon handed an arrest warrant. ainsley: the latest twist into the investigation into the alleged hate crime attack on smollett. steve: we have new information in chicago about the actor's criminal past. matt? reporter: good morning. this morning it is becoming increasingly apparent chicago police are trying to get portions of the smollett case in front of a grand jury perhaps to get a warrant, some type of subpoena.
fox news has learned that the brothers testimony was set to be locked in before a grand jury but smollett's legal team provided some type of information that paused the grand jury process. documents obtained by fox news reveal in 2007 jussie smollett was convicted of a dui, lying to police in los angeles, sentenced to 36 months probation. this morning smollett's crisis manager, smolletts that not talked to police monday or tuesday, not responding to requests for a follow-up interview. on tuesday, cook county state attorney kim fox recused herself from the state. she might personally know some of the witnesses. police tell fox news they investigated a tip yesterday at the that the brothers were seen inside of the high-rise the night of the attack with smollett but ruled the tip unfounded. brian, ainsley, steve. steve: here to weigh in, radio show host larry elder joins us from l.a. there was a rush to judgment in this case, that
turned out not to be the case. >> i'll say. my reaction, isn't this good news that this didn't happen? i was interested in the reaction of a people tv host, who says i was hoping and praying this day would never come, meaning the day would never come that we found out that jussie smollett had pull ad hoax. she would prefer to believe in the streets of chicago, you have trump-supporting goons wearing maga caps, patrolling streets at night with bleach and nooses looking for black and gay trump bashers to beat up, to whitewash and to lynch. that would be a better reality for her, than to think this actor just lied. that blows my mind. brian: larry you see the big picture here when all these other presidential candidates call the president a racist, sexist, xenophobe, covington backlash, there is desperation to make the president seem like a white supremacist. >> that is whole point behind it. why it had legs. the narrative trump is racist,
his support remembers racist. not only supporters are racist but also violent racists. it served the purpose. it served the purpose of racism remain as major problem in america. a mantra of the democratic party and the left. that is also nonsense. back in 1997 time and cnn did a joint poll, asked black teens and white teens, do you think racism is a major problem in america. both said yes. more white teens said yes than black teens this is the poll, before we had back-to-back black attorneys generals, before we had back-to-back black secretaries of state, we had obama office. is racism a minor problem, major problem, no problem in your daily lives. 89% of black teens said minor or no problem in my life. that was 22 years ago. my suspicion racism is a lot less now than back in 1997. it was not a problem for teens back then.
it's a lie. this jussie smollett thing advance idea that donald trump is racist, that racist is major problem in the america. it was a perfect storm story. ainsley: he was scheduled to be in nine different scenes, have a musical act. he has been cut out of five of the scenes. he has no mans to meet with police, even though police want to requestion him. thank you very much, larry. >> my pleasure. steve: dozen minutes before the the top of the hour. she is rising country music star.
