tv The Story With Martha Mac Callum FOX News February 27, 2019 4:00pm-5:00pm PST
sites in hanoi. sean hannity a big interview with the president after the meeting. tomorrow a news conference as well which will be interesting all things covered. thank you for inviting us to your home. fair, balanced and still unafraid. the story hosted by martha maccallum 8300 miles away starts right now. >> martha: it feels like it is cross the river, thank you very much, brett, great to see you tonight and developments just coming out on what a deal may look like with north korea and perhaps an end to the korean war. and tonight two nuclear powers india and pakistan taking down planes and shooting across the border in an unnerving face-off. but in washington today, there was war of words that exploded when michael coleman headed to prison for lying to congress in part and late into his former boss of ten years. >> he is a racist, he is a con man, and he is a cheat.
>> martha: good evening everybody i am martha maccallum and this is "the story," a self-declared fixer implicated the president in hush money payments and said he was aware of communications with wikileaks. but cohen did not have evidence the president ever colluded with russia during and the entire investigation. questions have been raised about whether i know direct evidence that mr. trump or his campaign colluded with russia. i do not. and i want to be clear. >> martha: republicans slammed cohen's credibility. mr. cohen committed four crimes over a period of several years. he was motivated to do so by personal greed and repeatedly, repeatedly used his power and influence, but the democrats don't care. they don't care.
they just want to use you mr. cohen, you are there a package today. they have got to find somebody, somewhere to say something so that they can try to remove the president from office. >> martha: trey gowdy, former chairman of the committee will appear today that first democratic congressman sean patrick maloney on the in-house intel committee questioning cohen behind closed doors. good to have your back on the program tonight so what jumped out at you and what do you to ask him tomorrow >> the large focus on the russian side of this but what jumped out to me today michael cullen showed up with hard documentary evidence of the president's involvement in a conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws and there was an effort to conceal that, to obstruct and cover it up. unfortunately for those who want to discount mr. cohen he brought documents to back that up. that is a very serious charge and that is new. >> martha: that is part of the
ongoing investigation and of course, there will be a lot of questions. he also said he didn't have come with the president never directed him to make that payment. he said he understood that that is what the president wanted based on what he said, but that is clearly part of the ongoing investigation. what did you think of the fact that he said he did not see collusion between russia and the trump administration, which obviously, was the motive behind forming a special counsel in the first place. >> sean: that is an important piece of testimony for mr. cohen and we will go into that in greater detail. behind closed doors tomorrow in the intel committee. i want to understand that better, but i think all of this is just testimony from one witness. this witness has credibility problems. we should take it with a grain of salt. that is why the documents that show the president's involvement in a conspiracy to violate federal campaign finance laws is very serious. >> martha: go-ahead. >> sean: similarly if
mr. cohen testimony is that he's unaware of collusion with russia doesn't have documents we should take that seriously too but it's only one piece of the puzzle. >> martha: are you willing to say based on what you have seen and heard that there wasn't any collusion with russia? you've heard the head of the senate intel committee chairman burke say he hasn't seen that. is that where we are right now? do you agree with that? >> sean: i would resist the temptation every new cycle to pronounce complete understanding of what is happening. that gets read by the end to all kinds of trouble. we had one days testimony today and eye-popping revelations and evidence of criminal conduct by the president of the united states. i'm going to let robert mueller complete his work and we will do our work on the house intelligence committee, and i will keep my powder dry on any conclusions about those issues until we have done that. >> martha: hundreds of 302 and testimony and eventually i guess we will get to draw some conclusion. >> sean: excuse me, excuse me,
it's been going on for two years. that is the same amount of time for big dog investigation has been going on. but the fact of the matter we will get a report and let's wait to see what it says. >> martha: we will all be into that report absolutely. in terms of the criticism from jim jordan he basically said is this all you've got? you have a witness here who the investigation has been through for a long time and the southern district of new york does not apparently have him cooperating. that is one of the questions they want an answer to. what is the value at this point of michael collins testimony to you? >> sean: welcome if all you've got is documents, her documents and evidence of the president's involvement in a criminal conspiracy to violate campaign finance laws, that is not a conclusion. if that is what they mean about all they've got, the president and a conspiracy come i don't know what he's talking about. i don't know why any serious
person would not be interested if that is true or not. like i said, not jumping to conclusions. on russia we need to do our work and get to the bottom of it. i think that is very serious. >> martha: i have one final question nancy pelosi said she did not watch today. you are looking at the poles of american, cnn, fox with a number around 50% people who don't want to see the president impeached. is that groundwork that is being laid to continue an investigation, an investigation that might possibly form a grounds for impeachment? >> sean: well my nancy pelosi didn't watch today because past universal background checks supported by 90% of the american people to do something real long gun safety. that is the important work we are doing. and so you cannot walk and chew gum at the same time. pulling on things you are talking about is not relevant until we have the final report from robert mueller and until we've done the work on the investigation that was not done clearly last year. every day that we get more
information, the initial report the republicans put out is an embarrassment. we need to get the facts and we need to be fair and reach conclusions. >> martha: thank you very much, congressman maloney from new york, good to see you tonight. here to respond oversight committee fox contributor trey gowdy, mr. kelly, thank you for being here tonight. >> trey: yes, ma'am. >> martha: your reaction to what congressman maloney had to say today? >> trey: sean said the focus is on russia and immediately he went to the stripper and the center pole. our focus is on russia and the next words out of his mouth were stormy daniels and mcdougall. and also he wants to wait on a report and yet 60 of his colleagues have already voted to move forward with impeachment. they ain't leaning on nothing. collusion. that is what started this entire investigation. that is to seminal question and the one thing michael cohen has been consistent on. in october 2017, he said no
evidence of conspiracy between trump campaign in russia. and he said it again today. but the democrats don't want to hear that. so now they want to move to a violation. >> martha: a couple of the big items that came out today with this moment with regard to a conversation that roger stone had with president trump on speakerphone in his office. let's watch. >> mr. presidential candidate who knew that roger stone was talking with julian sanchez about wikileaks drop on democratic national committee email emails. >> martha: what did you think of that moment? >> trey: well, there are always three aspects to the outcome of the hacking of the server come with the hacking of john podesta's email and the dissemination of that information. which is why i asked michael cohen two years ago do you have any evidence the president or the campaign was connected with dissemination? let's assume, and i would be careful doing this, but let's
assume michael koman is telling the truth. what crime was committed? what crime listening to roger stone say come i think wikileaks is about to do what they treated they are going to do with a bunch of documents. >> martha: good point how about this moment when he talked about adam schiff and the chairman. watch this. >> we spoke with chairman cummings and the party. chairman, spoke with chairmanship about topics that were going to be raised at the upcoming hearing. actually what you were going to talk about? wow. >> martha: what was that all about? >> trey: i think jimmy had it about right, wow and not wow adam and cummings talk to a witness. the real wow for me i expect them to try to do that but the real wow for me
"the washington post" and "new york times," politico, the hill, their reaction, republicans were accused of talking to witnesses. it was front page information from elijah and adam went nuts if there was an insinuation republican chairman had talked to a witness. i want you to count the articles you see tomorrow about cummings prepping thes cohen before congs and you won't find one. >> martha: that is remarkable. one of the other takeaways a lot of questions raised about southern district of new york investigation. and the cfo of the trump organization works closely in the circle that michael cohen and he mentioned several times, he cooperating witness and that investigation. what did you make of the fact that elijah cummings when he walked out said, you know, he felt there was evidence that the president is under an criminal investigation in new york? >> trey: for an fec violation?
>> martha: and financial proprieties a suggestion cohen said he couldn't talk about it but mention fraud and the like. >> trey: will come at the southern district think so little of michael cohen that they will let him go to the prison without a witness and popular think so little of michael cohen they will let himo to federal prison without using him as a witness and in fact mueller did something he never does, he actually spoke. he actually corrected michael cohen and his lawyers. so the fact that congress would allow someone, that no real serious investigation considers a witness to be their star witness shows how far congress has fallen. it breaks my heart to say that. i care about the institution. but to call a convicted perjurer as your first witness was stunning to watch. >> martha: i want to ask you one thing before i let you go. this is a tweet from congressman matt gaetz yesterday. in which he since has taken down, hey, michael cohen, do
your wife and father in law know about your girlfriends? maybe tonight would be a good time for a chat. i wonder if she will remain faithful when you are in prison. she is about to learn a lot. he took that down, as i said. was that an error on his part? >> trey: it was more than an air, it is indefensible. it is not persuasion. the president has a lot of provocative allies like map. he could stand to have a few more persuasive allies, people like john ratcliffe, stephani, people who make the case but threatening a witness and i'm going to leave the criminality to others but threatening it witness like that in a tweet, you are not helping the person you are trying to help. you actually look guilty as hell when you do things like that. so i'm glad he took it down but he never should have put it up. >> martha: we will speak with him tomorrow night and ask him some questions about that as well. thank you very much, trey gowdy, always good to see you, sir. >> trey: yes, ma'am. >> martha: the first reaction
from the trump administration to what happened today when kellyanne conway joins us next. i can't tell you who i am or what i witnessed, but i can tell you liberty mutual customized my car insurance so i only pay for what i need. oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no... only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ so let's promote our spring ftravel deals, on choicehotels.com like this: (sneezes) earn one free night when you stay just twice this spring. allergies. or.. badda book. badda boom.

historic second summit today's. he will be well rested for that and fully engaged. >> martha: you don't know if you watched or not? >> kellyanne: i think he's all parts of it, absolutely. i don't know anybody who watched it for nine straight hours. i certainly didn't come i was busy here but i saw plenty of it. and i think also, martha, the one thing that i would really say to everyone is come at goes beyond, you know, reminding everybody michael cohen, but also the things he's saying, don't comport with somebody bragging about entering to enrich himself while based on his connections with the president and his belief in this president's policies and actions. so there is a lot of come i think revision of history here for mr. cohen. >> martha: i have a couple of other questions i do want to ask him elijah cummings when he came out said it appears the president did commit a crime and office based on the checks that
everyone was shown while he who is president to cover that expense and repay michael cohen. >> kellyanne: the operative word is it appears. if this were an actual court proceeding or a trail, there would be cross-examination. i have not practiced low many years but i would have said to mr. cohen, did you ever receive a check like this? >> martha: he said all 11 checks. >> kellyanne: no, martha my point is not for that alleged transaction but over the course of his time and working for the trump organization in other words, was it a pattern or practice for somebody who was as an employee to retain checks or be reimbursed for other expenses? i think it proves nothing and here is why. michael cohen admitted today the president never directed him to lie, never directed that he "spoken code" and if you're around the president enough you know what the president is asking you to do without doing
it. that is nonsense to someone who's been around the president every single day for three straight years now. he's pretty direct. you see very direct. >> martha: let me ask you this question. is the president concerned about this investigation? we did learn a little bit more about the southern district of new york looking into financial impropriety or aunt weisel berg's former cfo who is cooperating witness in that case, look, the democrats are after three things today, the president knew about the trump tower meeting and he knew about leaked wikileaks and they all said that it is not true and the hush money was somehow meant to, there was a worry it would affect the election but where is the evidence, so many false accusers coming out as you know every single day the president talking about them and being interviewed at length on network and cable stations. be when i understand all that but i'm asking you a separate
question whether or not the president or the white house is concerned about the outstanding criminal investigation that is ongoing in the president and the southern district of new york. >> kellyanne: is nothing that concerns me or i work on any day at the white house. martha, i know the president said a redline involved in delving into finances for legitimate reasons. you heard mr. cohen and he's in constant contact with the southern district. and so we will see what happens, but remember this all started as a hunt for collusion with russia. the chief witness today for the democrats, and dare i say, busy raising money off of the testimony today while it was happening. the chief argued that collusion with russia was not proven today and mr. cohen today said he had no evidence of that. >> martha: that is truth. last question susan rice wrote that the president can learn some lessons from the koran deal which the president has railed against, the united states and north korea agree on a series of
steps to build mutual confidence as part of a road map to unfold new clearing station and as mr. trump, a rand/nuclear negotiations and tonight, according to some no longer a demand on the u.s. negotiators for nuclear ballistic missiles. is that accurate? speak to the president said this is a process and no one expects to walk away tomorrow with complete deal and complete denuclearization or read it -- with the korean peninsula. this is a process and they have been in war 70 years and building up nuclear capability. i have to push back some of the president is the one who took us out of the iran deal, a horrible deal for the country and our friend israel. and i don't know that you would use that as a model. also, somebody that lied about what happened in man because he and because of a videotape and went on five sunday shows and lied about that. so thanks for the advice, but i
think the president will continue for the summit with chairman kim while sanctions remain in place, martha. no one is getting themselves if north korea will not be nuclear rise, the demand on the table for this president. in return, may be some x amount of development for north koreans if, in fact,, their chairman does what he says he's going to do or does with the president is demanding him to do. thanks for covering vietnam and historic second summit because i don't even know we deserve split screen of the events today with the president and what he's doing. too much now the president, michael cohen sitting in jail. the split screen was overdone by the news and the media. >> martha: kellyanne conway come i think you very much, kellyanne, good to speak with yu tonight. coming up next. >> people want to work for what they get. so this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want. i banco trump and others in the
so we know how to cover almost anything. even rooftop parking. strange forces at work? only if you're referring to gravity-and we covered it. talk to farmers. we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two. ♪ we are farmers. bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum ♪ guys do whatever it takes to deal with shave irritation. so, we re-imagined the razor with the new gillette skinguard. it has a unique guard between the blades. that's designed to reduce irritation during the shave. because we believe all men deserve a razor just for them.
and we have got to get back to normal. >> martha: passionate message from the chairman of the house oversight committee. and the close of that hearing on capitol hill, a hearing shocked onlookers at time with moments like this. >> the fact that someone would actually use a prop, a black woman, in this chamber, in this committee, is alone racism itself. >> my nieces and nephews are people of color. to indicate that i asked someone who is a personal friend of the trump family, who has worked for him and who knows this particular individual that she's coming in to be a prop, that is racist to suggest i asked her to come in here for that reason. >> martha: well met, that was an incredible exchange today. mike huckabee, fox news contributor as well, governor, good to see you tonight. two things come i thought the clothes that elijah cummings did was very powerful and calling
sort of on the better angle of our nature because it gets so ugly everywhere these days. and then that exchange, and we have a picture of this moment, lynn patton a long time associate an employee and she's worked with the trump family and the business for many, many years. she came into the hearing basically to vouch for her boss who is or president. what did you think of all of that, governor? >> mike: well, i'm going to say chairman cummings put it very well in the closing statements. and frankly, it was the high point of a day of testimony from michael cohen that was lower than a snake's belly at the dead sea. it was really come a very disappointing today to hear him given that kind of platform. but i thought that chairman did a great job of showing his civility to mark meadows and to calling down the congresswoman who made that ridiculous statement. the same congresswoman who
publicly shouted out that she had told her son, her teenage son, that she was going to speaking of trump, impeach that mf. that is what she has basically wired for. and i thought that exchange between congressman meadows and chairman cummings was a high mark of civility and i commend karen chairman cummings for his manner of bringing it to fruition. >> martha: i hope the new members of congress were watching that because the two of them were talking about their friendship. they disagree on things from time to time, but they are friends and i thought that was a moment i hope everybody saw in today's hearing. i want to ask you about another topic here that sort of speaks to the trump administration. this is a chair headline for "the washington post." and it goes back to his statement you banco trunk made about the fact that she believes people want to work to elevate themselves. it says she doesn't understand work and no one in the trump
administration does and here is trevor know with talking about the same subject, watch are you [bleep] me right now. ivanka trump said she learned in life that people want to work for what they get, really? the woman whose resume says daddy, i need a job now, that woman, really? >> martha>> mike: it's a sexist misogynist remark that has worked hard. she didn't get to choose her parents who are rich anymore than i got to choose mine who were dirt poor. it is not how we come into this world but what we do with what we have been given. she has taken the privilege of life that she has been born into. but she has worked hard. i don't think anybody who has been around her can say she's not a remarkable entrepreneur and a business woman. and rightfully come a wonderful human being. i resent the kind of comment and i would tell you this i do believe people want to work. i grew up wanting to work. i did not want somebody handing
me something. i don't resent i grew up poor. i am grateful for it because it made me hungry. i'm the only male in my entire family who ever graduated high school. but i didn't grow up hating people who had more stuff than me. i grew up thinking, it was in america and if i worked hard, i could maybe end up doing a little better than the folks above me have done. >> martha: there is a scorn element because, as you say, she didn't choose the family she was born into. she doesn't have to work at all, probably. and she chooses every day to work and now, she works for the administration, of course. but there is sort of a bit of back and forth cropping up between >> mike alexandria ocasz that she worked as a waitress, living wage is not a gift, a right. and ivanka trump said she believes you don't want to have a minimum guarantee of money for
people who are unwilling to work. thought on that. >> mike: well, i think it is ridiculous to talk about a minimum wage. when we talk about a maximum wage and to get to a maximum wage, you work hard, get an education, find out something you can do better than other people. >> martha: we are talking about minimum guarantee of income just to be clear. >> mike: that defies market economy. i'm glad we don't have that. i'm glad instead of talking about the minimum, what should the minimum be? 20,000, $30,000, why not $300,000? if we make it a minimum let's make it a darn good one and get everybody status. that is the ridiculousness in this period until you break it down and it's absurd. >> martha: thank you, governor, always good to see u use. >> mike: thanks, martha good to talk to you. >> i just wish the family of gun violence in the city got this much attention. because that is who really deserves the amount of attention
we are giving to this particular incident. >> martha: one mother says her son is gone, and she wants jussie smollett to hear his story y. it's not sexy. or delicious. or fun. but since you need both car and home insurance, why not bundle them with esurance and save up to 10%? which you can spend on things you really want to buy, like... well, i don't know what you'd wanna buy because i'm just a guy on your tv. esurance. it's surprisingly painless. you won't find relief here. congestion and pressure? go to the pharmacy counter for powerful claritin-d.

violence exists. the merits of one case should not and cannot call that into question. the media coverage does not convey the reality and totality of the cruelty and danger bc. this is a story that must be told. she writes, my next guest says there is a different story to be told as well. in 2017, her son jeremy, her only child was murdered in chicago. to this day, his case has never been solved. joining me now, she said she is by the media attention jussie smollett and she wants her son's killer found. first of all, we are so sorry for what happened to your family and what happened to your son who i know was a handsome young man to come a football player, on the dean's list in the center of your life. why do you say that you are sucked in by the coverage that the smollett case received? >> first of all i want to say thank you for having me.
i'm disgusted because of this notoriety, he received 12 detectives on the case and got extra media attention where we have over 750 unsolved murders and the city of chicago. we have 13,000 cases of dna backlog in the city of chicago, so i think this attack is not real, he wasted so much police time, valuable time. we didn't get the effort and we didn't get 12 detectives in our cases so it's an outrage to me. >> martha: what do you think about ellen page wrote. went out on a limb and jussie smollett story was accurate and we are still waiting for the final story to be written on all of that. but she said don't let that cloud effect that the hate crime happens all the time. >> carmia: welcome of course i don't know anybody to be a victim of crime, race, religion,
gender, and so, of course, if the attack is true, we don't want anyone to be heard on the streets of chicago, but we don't want anyone because of notoriety to get special treatment as well. we have an epidemic in chicago and then we have all of the unsolved cases, and murder. that is unacceptable. >> martha: it is. and i want to put up on the screen 2017 the most recent poll numbers that we have come a chicago murders 660. there is the nation night - nationwide numbers, murders 17,200 plus. what was your, i'm just, what was your reaction. i can imagine because you are waiting for, you know some kind of action on your son's case. and how frustrating is that? what is life like? what do you do to try to get attention in the police
department to solving his case? >> carmia: well, first of all, it's more than just frustrating. it is hurt feeling because it makes me feel like my son didn't matter. it is a hard feeling, tons and tons of mothers and families that wants answers to their loved one's death. to see so much media attention and so much police attention to one crime. >> martha: before i let you go, i cannot imagine what you have been through. and i know you don't know fully the circumstances. he was shot in his car, correct? tell me a little bit about jeremy before i let you go. >> carmia: jeremy was an only child. he was exactly like his mom, a class clown. he loved to dance. he was a good kid. he was a typical teenager. i'm not going to say he was perfect, but he was a good kid, respectable kid. and he was my heart.
and you know, i know his case is not considered high-profile but he is a high-profile person to me. >> martha: thank you very much for being here tonight. and please let us know. we want you to get some action on this case. and i know you want it solved and you want to find his killer. and we hope you do. thank you very much. we are so sorry for your loss. >> carmia: thank you for having me. >> martha: we will be right back with more, jesse joins me right after this mber, tecky. i'm tecky. i can do it all. go ahead, ask it a question. tecky, can you offer low costs and award-winning full service with a satisfaction guarantee, like schwab? sorry. tecky can't do that. schwabbb! calling schwab. we don't have a satisfaction guarantee, but we do have tecky! i'm tecky. i ca... are you getting low costs and award-winning full service? if not, talk to schwab.

will and my family wants to but i haven't decided. >> jesse: well he can't win and that's why he's not getting into. this is a direct quote, this is what he said "we are taking a look the alleged appeal i have is even real." so biden doesn't even know if people like him. and that is why the president calls, calls him the 1% show. i think what is going on here joe biden come with a front runner but a strong front runner can clear the field. the last time i checked about 30,000 democrats running for president. he just doesn't have it. he doesn't have the fund-raising appeal. and i think he should just stay in the private sector, make a little money, the trumpet company is pretty good to. >> martha: he has to wrestle with the idea that he's already run twice. if he gets in, he might lose his primary. >> jesse: he will go down hard. >> martha: to live with a career like joe biden has had. >> jesse: i agree he should go out on a high note.
you call the obama administration a high note. i don't think he's happy enough to navigate the identity politics, minefield that the democratic party will be, he's e democrats winning in the highly populous in the country. he looks at that and says, you know, i don't have to be way out there on the end with alexandria ocasio-cortez. or if the people will deal with me here in the middle. >> jesse: i don't think there is a middle anymore in the democratic party. the whole field is so far left. if he wants to run as a moderate, joe, go for it but i think he will be eaten alive. >> martha: speaking of that, not really, but whatever. >> jesse: we don't know where we are going. >> martha: speaking of elizabeth warren, now very suspicious of this i want to say this up front. there is a mixed blood tribe in oregon who is offering her membership in their tribe. it is called the luna tribe, the

next year against john cornyn who is the incumbent which some people have been courting him to do. so that it is a pretty big signal. if he says i'm not going to run for senate, i already did that. in the state of texas but i have a lot of nationwide appeal. i have made a decision how we can best serve the country. we are excited to share it with everyone. >> jesse: the big tease. well, he's a top-tier democrat and polls welcome a top five pretty much every poll. tall, handsome and can raise money, pretty uplifting but he's hit kneeling during the national anthem was patriotic. we need to tear down the walls on the border and he wore a dress back in the punk band back in the day. i think he is weird now, writing poetry, kind of dark. >> it is like what you do to kids in middle school. >> martha: that does not sound -- >> jesse: thank you, jessie.
