3:03 am
of 10. steve: aisha joins us live what's the latest on this tuesday morning. >> good morning to you. to see this upclose, first hand is absolutely horrifying. and i want to show you something that really struck out to me. take a look over here. this is a high chair that was thrown so far away from the home that it belonged to. and to me it really tells a story of a family that built a home for their child, a home that is now gone. of the remains of it you see all over the place here. you see cushions of a couch there. you see a pillow a book, somebody's book. just completely torn up there and back that way that's what's left of the house just the foundation and few pieces of wood left behind and looks like a car still parked back there as well. and i want you to come over here with me because i want to show you just how strong this tornadoes was. that's a dryer.
3:04 am
it's a crumpled up piece of melts that's what a dryer was. take look at the damage in daylight as well. i want to show you what folks have been dealing with digging through to find anything recognizable. we have seen cars crushed and overturned truck, debris everywhere. the lee county sheriff describing it as if somebody took a giant knife and just scraped the ground. now, this morning, of course, the nation mornings the loss of the 23 people killed in this, including the three young children. a fourth grader taylor authortothornton. 6-year-old hernandez. taylor described as a child of god to brought so much joy to all who knew her. hearing about a 53-year-old man david wayne dean. listen to what his widow said about him. >> my life is gone.
3:05 am
he was the reason i lived, the reason i got up. there was a special bond. he completed me and i completed him. >> that is just so hard to hear. and this is just so hard to see. again, 23 victims and police here, authorities and search crews still looking for more victims. it's just an incredibly devastating. back to you. steve: it is, indeed. all right, aishah the live report from beauregard in alabama. ainsley: sign from one of the flea markets the sign was 20 miles away. it hadn't been damaged but it was on the ground lying on the ground 2 o0 miles away state lines. steve: 170 mile-per-hour winds. brian: we are used to seeing the blizzard and we will talk about that shortly of request for documents of the president of the united states. not many people thought it
3:06 am
was going to come at the fresh congresswoman who has burst onto the scene after she beat joe crowley in new york. steve: the story this morning alleges that alexandria ocasio-cortez's chief of staff ran a 1-million-dollar slush fund by turning campaign cash to his own companies. we are learning this from a complaint from the national legal and policy center. >> there is he in the back drop there by the way. ainsley: big fortune in silicone valley and worked for bernie sanders campaign. steve: alleged his companies seem to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used and we have got a sound bite from tom anderson from the national league and he says i have never seen a more ambitious operation to circumvent reporting requirements. representative ocasio-cortez has been quite vocal in condemning so-called dark money but her own campaign
3:07 am
went to great lengths to avoid the sunlight of disclosure. ainsley: that's the group that filed this complaint yesterday with the fec. the reason to believe for this is you have the political action committee. and he had two of those under his name. he established these two. and it was $885,000 in these pacs that was moved over to private companies, which he also controlled. steve: all about disclosure. in pacs you have to disclose money but then when it's a private company money knows where the money goes. brian: went to a brand new company called congress llc. exempt from reporting all of his expenditures over $200. this is way over $200. congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez was asked about that and she diverted. >> we should be talking about taxes, taxes, taxes and his bank account, his bank account, his bank account. his financial statements statements statements because that's where i think
3:08 am
actually some of the most troubling practices are. steve: that's a case of bad timing on the day where it is alleged that her chief of staff diverted this cash to his private companies, she is talking right there about how the house needs to focus on president trump's finances. jason chaffetz who was chairman of the house oversight committee for a number of years says these allegations against aoc bad if true. >> there are campaign limits what can you give to a campaign, what can you give to a pac. how the pac discloses that and how they dispersed this money. it appears, at least basted on the allegation, that these pacs were created and then these llcs, these companies were formed in an elaborate scheme to funnel some money, nearly a million dollars. this is about as serious of an allegation as it gets. it includes fines and going to jail. if it was all true and found guilty.
3:09 am
brian: nice first two months. we will see how this goes. 8 mint8 minutes after the top of the hour. news yesterday revolving around the president and democratic controlled house jerry nadler chairman of the judiciary made clear that he wants to do his own mueller probe, no longer content to wait. he has filed a blizzard of requests, 80-plus document requests. over dozens of people associated with trump. some actually related to him on areas of obstruction of justice, public corruption and abuses of power. steve: one thing but the mueller probe the scope of the investigation was focused. this is the phishing expedition because he is casting the net as wide as he possibly can targeting 81 entities and corporations and people. but he has got a really good reason and here it is. listen to this. >> we are simply exercising our oversight jurisdiction and he is not -- he doesn't understand or he is not willing to concede to congress that we have an
3:10 am
oversight jurisdiction. we have to -- you've had two years of sustained attacks by an administration of the nature that we haven't seen probably in a century or more against the free press, against the courts, against the law enforcement administrations, against free speech, but we have to make sure that this is not a dictatorship and rule of slaw respected. ainsley: mueller investigation has proven no collusion democrats now r. now trying to find a crime. they are going through all these different people president trump's life, family members, people within the administration, people who have worked for him over the years and his businesses, serving 1 people documents and many people are saying i hope when they do have to speak publicly that they will plead the fifth because this is a trap people say. steve: right. people say look, for the first two years of the trump administration. because the republicans were in charge of the house, there was no oversight of the administration. and that is why now there is going to be a lot of oversight. ainsley: some people served
3:11 am
documents corey lewandowski, eric trump, donald trump. one said you didn't serve one for ivanka. we have our reasons for that and we don't have to disclose that information. brian: clinton. donald trump revocable trust. the federal bureau of investigations. so i don't know. everyone. kushner companies. it goes on and on and on. now, joe digenova said last night everybody should egg four it will. ainsley: take the fifth. brian: let them spin their wheels. i thought -- this is basically they created their own mueller probe. maybe they got word that the mueller probe is not going to reveal something that's going to be damning on the president or damning enough. so they are going to do it themselves. they are going to do -- they are going to get to the point as maxine waters said the other day. they just want to get towards impeachment. if not, they want to wear them out and seem unacceptable for re-election within the next two years. ainsley: how many times have we heard dan bongino say what they are doing here they are -- normally you would find if there is a
3:12 am
crime you would find out who committed it and what they're doing is trying to find a crime by investigating everyone that he has ever been associated with to try to take him down. steve: in the march toward 2020 what the democrats are just trying to do with all these investigations is make it seem like there is so much trouble there why would we vote for that guy again? the big question is will people just grow weary of the investigation? ainsley: how much money are we spending? how many tax dollars are we spending to investigate this? steve: it's oversight they say. brian: we will see if the people are happy that the house is in democratic hands because this is what their agenda is 12 minutes now after the hour. our agenda says jillian wants to talk. jillian: yes, that's right. good morning to you. following a number of stories. stuarting with. this following more fallout overnight from the decision not to charge the officers involved in the deadly shooting of specify fan clark. at least 80 arrests were made during a new round of protests in a statement the mayor of sacramento, california, said he was disappointed adding, quote: i have many questions about what went on to precipitated
3:13 am
the order of wil to disperse and subsequent arrests. six people including ms-13 gang member under arrest in a massive drug bust. the drug enforcement agency finding cocaine and thousands of pills believed to be fentanyl in four homes in arizona. raids also uncovering a stash of weapons, body armor and thousands of dollars in cash. police say one of the suspects admitted to being a member of ms-13. ben carson plans to leave his role as secretary of housing and urban development after president trump's first term. >> i would be interested in returning to the private sector because i think you have just as much influence, maybe more. >> the president appointed carson as hud secretary in 2016. i will send it back to you. brian: he will finish out his two years. steve: thank you, ma'am.
3:14 am
ainsley: president trump giving his next guest a shoutout at the white house. >> in arkansas, attorney general rutledge has taken on the drug companies. leslie, i want to thank you very much. ainsley: leslie rutledge will join us next. because with expedia, i saved when i added a hotel to our flight. ♪ so even when she outgrows her costume, we'll never outgrow the memory of our adventure together. unlock savings when you add select hotels to your existing trip. only when you book with expedia.

3:19 am
brian: what i love is that you took on the big pharmaceutical companies, johnson and johnson. opioid manufacturers they all are. why did you go big? >> well, because we believe it's important to look at every solution for this problem. and whether it's the manufacturers and those companies that you listed johnson and johnson, purdue and endo to make sure their responsibility in educating doctors, telling doctors whether or not these drugs were addictive at the time. that's why we went after their deceptive trade practices and that's why the state of arkansas is suing these companies. this is a multifaceted problem and it's going to take a multifaceted approach. we will do everything we can. brian: when you talk about sanctuary cities that's another challenge the president took on from day one getting push back from the courts. where do you stand on that and do you see why the parent sees such an urgency to stop that? >> absolutely. i have long been an advocate for shutting down sanctuary cities across america. that america is one giant
3:20 am
sanctuary. and we want people to come here but we want them to come here legally and, you know, in the middle of the day and not in the middle of the night, rather. and so i have advocated for shutting down sanctuary cities, you know, because what we see is through this illegal activity, those individuals crossing over the border illegally comes with them the sort of drug that weaver talking about, th -- we aretalking about and or illegal drugs. brian: william barr says the majority tell him the majority of cocaine and fentanyl and heroin in this country goes through our southern border. part of the urgency. nothing about humanitarian needs. it's about american protection. thanks so much. we look forward to seeing your success and more of your success in arkansas. thank you. >> thank you, brian. brian: straight ahead tributes pouring in this morning for actor luke pear pery from a massive stroke at the

3:22 am
increases your low blood sugar risk. common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and decreased appetite. these can lead to dehydration, which may worsen kidney problems. i choose once-weekly trulicity to activate my within. if you need help lowering your a1c, ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity. there's brushing...and there's oral-b power brushing. oral-b just cleans better. even my hygienist said going electric could lead to way cleaner teeth. and unlike sonicare, oral-b is the first electric toothbrush brand accepted by the ada. oral-b. brush like a pro.

3:25 am
unclear how many people still remain inside the strong hold. steve: meanwhile sad news from hollywood yesterday actor perry died 52 years old. played on the beverly hills show 90210. suffered a massive stroke last week at his home. brian: according to the cdc every year more than 795,000 people in the united states have a stroke. ainsley: many are wondering how this can happen to someone in their fitters but experts say a stroke can strike at any age. dr. oz is the host of the dr. oz show and joins us now. yesterday phones are blowing up at least my generation. we in high school loved the show. he has young kids. >> how could this happen? >> shocking reality is roughly one in seven, one in 8 folks are under the age of 50 when they have a stroke that population at stroke victims is actually increasing. older folks having less folks but the younger ones are having more. 795,000. that's basically one every 40 seconds. that's the incidence of
3:26 am
strokes. big problem. women have more than men overall because women live longer so they can have more strokes. changing us in very subtle and important ways. a lot of times the small strokes people have. behavior changes. it sneaks up on you. realizing have you got it early on. what the risk factors are can save lives. that's the point of today's show. brian: doesn't a stroke happen like right away? it doesn't happen gradually does it. >> you could have small strokes. people think they have alzheimer's. what they had is multiple small little strokes second grade and then high school. they are knocking out their first date. you lose bits of your memory as you make little potholes in the brain from the small strokes. luke perry's stroke different kind. much more important. risk factors classic one for hardening of the arteries. high blood pressure number one. block off the artery but also explode the artery and bleed into the brain u bleeds are not as common
3:27 am
more severe when you have them. we don't know what happened to luke perry. the information has not been revealed. reasonable likelihood that's what happened to him. steve: he had a stroke and talking to the deck admissions to came and picked him up in the ambulance and fine in the ambulance and then at the hospital he went down hill. >> when he got to the hospital, apparently he wasn't that responsive. that's a bad sign. that means have you had enough damage that all you are now trying to do is pick up the pieces and a lot of times you get swelling in the brain. they put him into it seems they put him into a deep coma to knock him out so he wouldn't consume a lot of brain energy and again, that's another bad sign. people do recover from that. ainsley: i remember when my mom had her stroke and my dad had just read an article about the symptoms. he knew hours later how quiskly he needed to get her to the hospital. what are some of the major signs? >> think of the acronym be fast. be is for balance. you lose your balance. pretty typical. you won't real rides it but people around you will. eye sighted problems blurry vision, you don't see normally. f is for facial droop.
3:28 am
get me on camera here. your face when you smile won't look symmetrical so that is symmetrical. a droop of part of your face. lopsided. you won't be able to speak that well either because of that that's the s part of be fast and then the a is your arms. have them put their arms up any limb and see if it's symmetrical. people who have strokes won't be able to lift the arm quite symmetrically. they won't realize it. >> it is time. don't pass go. don't collect $200 it is a race. what time it was had you the stroke. have you just a few seconds of wasted time. most of it has got to be used within an hour open up that vessel, deal with whatever crisis is happening. steve: don't drive yourself. >> please, no. ainsley: how important is it to pick out the right hospital? because my mom happened to be sent to this trauma hospital the only doctor in our city that performs whatever surgery to remove her clot in her brain and it was so timely thankfully he was on call in the middle of the night.
3:29 am
>> always ask the most important question. i wish brian was as astute as you are on these. >> brian: i don't really pay attention. >> over here. over here. you should now find a major stroke center in your region know where it is so whether you have a crisis go there. don't do to facilities that don't have the ability to take out a clot which is what your mom had done which saved her life. best chances to get to someone who knows how to do this and not that many. not every hospital should do it or equipped to do it. good enough to be good at at it go to a mecca. brian: a lot of times closest one. >> you make enough noise if you have a bad hernia they will take you to the closest place. gunshot go to a hospital. if you are having a stroke go to a hospital that can help you. ambulances know that looking for the brain centers look for the heart centers. there is no point in arriving at a hospital that going to transfer to you another hospital. steve: dr. oz, thank you very much. we will be watching your show later this afternoon. >> god bless you all. ainsley: president trump
3:30 am
assigning two active veterans. what is in the legislation? robert wilkie is going to join us live next. steve: call it higher education. the college that wants students to go to pot for four years. ainsley: higher explanation. steve: that's right. an explanation as if it's needed coming up. ♪ higher ♪ want to take you higher ♪ h serious diseases are being targeted for cuts to their medicare drug coverage. new government restrictions would allow insurance companies to come between doctor and patient. and deny access to individualized therapies millions depend on. call the white house today. help stop cuts to part d drug coverage that put medicare patients at risk. help stop cuts to part d drug coverage minimums and fees seem to your typical bank.n of
3:31 am
capital one is anything but typical. that's why we designed savings and checking accounts with no fees or minimums. this is banking reimagined. what's in your wallet?
3:32 am
3:33 am
>> we have fast food because i know you people very well. we like american companies. chick-fil-a they say. chick-fil-a. steve: it's your shot of the morning. president trump yesterday welcomed the north dakota state university football team to the white house with a fast food spread as you can see right there. brian: they are juggernaut, celebrating championship last 8 years.
3:34 am
first trip to the white house. ainsley: you might remember the fast food tradition started in january when president trump personally paid for the spread when clemson won the national championship and they went to the white house to visit. steve: i think yesterday they had representatives from if i can which i lay and they had mcdonald's on board. ainsley: probably better than a fancy meal, right? steve: a lot of them are used to it because they have it in college. brian: let's bring in v.a. secretary robert wilkie i believe for the first time. mr. secretary, thanks so much for joining us today. >> thank you, brian. thank you for having me. brian: what's the president doing to combat if it is indeed possible the epidemic of veteran suicide? >> well, what you are going to see today, brian, is the president launching really the first national comprehensive effort to combat this scourge. every day 20 veterans take their own lives. some of those are on active duty. some are in the guard and reserve. the sad thing is that 14 of those 20 are outside of our veteran system.
3:35 am
and what the president will do today is convene a task force. i think i will being the co-chair with my partners at the department of defense and other departments of the government. and we will bring out best medicine, the best social science in addition to going to the congress and asking for grants and moneys to give to our states and locations so they can help us in this fight. ainsley: mr. secretaries, is there anything we can do? because when you hear these numbers. these are individuals that have fought or our country. sacrificed so much. these are god's children. these are lives. when you know that someone is at the depths of despair, is there anything we can do as a public? >> i think there is i will give you an example. i was in alaska a few months ago and i went to see the alaska federation of natives. over half of the veterans in the state of alaska are outside of the department of veterans affairs. and i asked the afn to double the number of veterans tribal
3:36 am
representatives to get out into the wilderness of alaska to help us bring in those veterans who we can't touch. we can't do this all by ourselves. what the president has recognized, he has recognized two things. one, this has to be a national effort. there has to be a war on this. the other thing that he has recognized the science has changed. i will give you an example. most of our veterans come to us, many of us come to us in chronic pain. they are like professional athletes. a lifetime of wear and tear. and we have found in many of the cases suicide that some can't cope with that pain. so, instead of doing traditional things like opioids, which have you talked about on this program, we are now looking at different methods to ease that pain, tai chi, karate, things like that. things to change the trajectory of this problem. steve: of the 20 veterans who take their lives every
3:37 am
day, i have read the information from your department, 70% of them have little or no contact with the federal veteran service and system. >> that's right. steve: you have got to get those people who feel so alone to open up a little and say hey, i need some help. >> that's right. we are looking at a problem that goes back to the time in many cases when lyndon johnson was president. the majority of those veterans who take their own lives come from the vietnam era. my father's comrades from southeast asia. so these are problems that have been building for now over -- almost 50, 60 years. it is those folks that we need to reach out and touch. but, because so many of our veterans are not in our system, 20 million veterans in america. only 9 million are in. we need to do a better job of bringing them. and public awareness is the key. brian: and you have got to be ready to accept those big
3:38 am
numbers. i know you have your hands full trying to get the v.a. streamlined and more efficient. congratulations, mr. secretary. glad we are taking some action. i hope it works. >> thank you, brian, may i add one thing? last week we had terrible incident at palm beach. three v.a. professionals dr. federer, dr. alba, and technician johnson stopped a veteran from committing suicide. they put their lives on the line. two of them were shot. but that veteran was saved. and every day our v.a. employees are intervening in the lives of veterans who have fallen on hard times. it's a wonderful story. wish we didn't have to do it. but, your department is out there every day combating this scourge and we are so happy that the president has taken the lead. ainsley: finally we are starting to talk about this and the president signed the executive order yesterday to help military transition when they come home. thank you so much, mr. secretary. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome.
3:39 am
steve: 21 and a half minutes before the top of the hour and jillian joins us with some news. jillian: we are follow this story. the illegal immigrant charged with killing mollie tibbetts wants his confession thrown out. he claims he wasn't read his rights before police questioning. he also wants the trial moved to somewhere more diverse. arguing the town in iowa does not have a big enough minority population for a fair jury pool. he meeted not guilty to murdering tibbetts last summer. hillary clinton is putting 2020 rumors to rest. >> i'm not running but i'm going to keep working and speaking and standing up for what i believe. i want to be sure that people understand i'm going to keep speaking out. i'm not going anywhere. jillian: clinton says she isn't planning on running for office in her home state of new york either. the sisters rescued after two days in the wilderness are speaking out. >> i just wanted a little more adventure but i said to
3:40 am
go a little farther and my sister cried the whole night and so i told her to think happy thoughts of our family. jillian: 8-year-old leah and 5-year-old caroline got lost after wandering more than a mile from their northern california home. they survived by drinking water from leaves and hid under bushes to keep warm. they sang nursery rhymes in hopes of being found. his could youers reuniting them with family after surviving 44 hours in the cold. this college is bringing a whole new meaning to higher education. hundreds of students at northern michigan university are majoring in cannabis chemistry. students won't grow marijuana but they will learn how to measure and extract medical compounds from other plants and apply those to pot. that is a look at your headlines. >> it's a big business. thank you very much. all right. today is the day janice dean has a brand new book out.
3:41 am

3:47 am
campaigns, including hers, so far lawful. but then the political action committee took a huge amount of cash and just gave it to a private corporation owned by this chief of staff. that is only lawful if it's in return for services rendered to the committee or to a third party like the campaign. and there is no record of that. so, this now appears as though this is an effort to hide the existence and movement of over a million dollars from the federal election commission which requires that you report it. ainsley: i know this guy is a gazillionaire he could use this money. judge: however he wants. ainsley: to pay his mortgage? judge: yes. even though this money was given to a political action committee ostensibly further the ideological views that this fellow and the congresswoman share. brian: one pac to the other congress pac to the justice democrat pac to this brand new congress llc. it's just moving money

was preordained that they had a trajectory to world high gem any. people who don't like donald trump are now talking about china is cheating. china is rigging the international commercial order. china's military has to be stopped. he changed the entire dialogue. same thing with north korea and nato, nafta, eu. so people will agree with him in principle but they don't want to say that he has his fingerprints on these issues. but he does. and he is inseparable really from the message. i don't think another republican candidate could have run on what he did. people were saying whatever donald trump is, i want him to get even with the so-called media and the left. steve: real briefly, your observation about the democrats launching all these investigations? obviously this is their campaign strategy in the run-up to 2020. >> yeah, it is. as a historian i just say did the voting machine. did the logan act, did the
4:30 am
25th amendment, did muriel, did the mccabe tragic commit at this coup work? it gets steger and same old script and meanwhile he is going to north korea. it didn't work with clinton when the republicans tried things like that. we forget they did more than try to impeach him. brian: conservatives don't like president trump. how do you explain we understand when democrats don't like a republican president. how do you explain republicans who don't like a republican president? >> they had an argument. well, i may agree what what he is doing now and my prior position and because he is saying it and giving his support for it, i'm not for it they didn't make the ancillary argument. donald trump is like no other person in the white house we know what f.d.r. and jfk and lbj did we just didn't report it. and his behavior is such that it nullifies an agenda. they haven't proven that thesis. they are forced in this weird position of renouncing what they used to be for just because trump is for it
4:31 am
and that doesn't work. ainsley: one of the most famous book "the case for christ." and you wrote a book that comes out today "the case for trump." >> you said that not me. ainsley: thank you so much. >> thank you. brian: see you on radio. >> yes. steve: meanwhile, speaking of the political left, bernie sanders says he wants to get rid of private health insurance and give medicare to everybody. but will that plan actually work? we're going to talk about that. ainsley: plus, we love our janice dean the weather machine. now she is opening up like never before about everything from her family to her battle with m.s. and some fun stories, too. her history with steven tyler. it's all in her new book and she joins us with a preview next. brian: who's that? ♪ sunshine ♪ coming down ♪ and that's the sound of sunshine coming down ♪

could read i had memorized it and listened to my voice played back. and then i would interview kids in the neighborhood. steve: what's your name? where are from you? sound familiar? janice: amazing to me it's a full circle moment that from that dream i'm here living the dream and to have this book now and be on the couch with you is truly surreal. ainsley: we have been through so much together as a family, as a fox family. so what i love about this you are very honest and very real. you talk about your struggle with your weight and how that one kid bullied you and you name him in the book and i love that. sorry, but, you know, our words have consequences and the way you treat people can effect people for the rest of their lives. you write about that. you are fun. you have been dealt in many ways a tough hand with ms. but you are so fun and courageous and loving and we watch you raise your boys. fall in love with sean. you are just a real picture of what an american woman goes through.

4:39 am
mrs. cline wa klein was in a wheelchair. she said it was important for her her kids to see her working like everyone else despite being in a wheelchair. i asked matthew what he thought of that and he said i think she is the coolest teacher i have ever had. did she say why she was in a wheelchair? she said she had something called m.s. and at that moment i realized i had never really told my two boys that i have multiple sclerosis they knew i had to give myself injections to make me feel better but not exactly why. i had to tell his brother theodore why i had the same thing as mrs. klein. matthew's eyes got wider and he said will you be in a wheelchair? >> so grateful she was given to me by god to be able to talk to to my boys that i also have the same thing that mrs. klein has and she is doing great. brian: something else, too. you talk about neil cavuto.

4:47 am
will say. >> the criticism of bernie sanders is he is going to raise your taxes. well, i may. but do you know what i'm doing? i'm doing away with all of your private health insurance premiums. we can't afford the present system. that's why we are going to move for medicare for all. brian: fantastic. next guest argues sanders' plan won't work and he knows it doctor turned lawmaker who says it's time for politicians to get real about curing america's healthcare system. he joins us now. a were foredermatologist republican congressman john joyce. congressman, medicare for all it's about time. it's finally here. what's wrong with that? >> it's unsustainable, brian. a medicare for all system has been estimated to cost $32 trillion over 10 years. $32 trillion out of the pockets of hard-working taxpayers. recent polls show that america is not interested in this. less than 40% of americans are embracing this medicare for all idea.
4:48 am
bernie sanders has allowed this to become a political football as so many of the incredibly left leaning drastic candidates have. medicare for all is financially unsustainable and as a doctor, as a new legislator i can tell you this isn't what america wants. brian: all your entire practice is all medicare patients, do you make money? >> i think anyone can work hard and be financially successful in that world. but, a medicare fee schedule drastically reformed and reformulated with a medicare for all system. brian: listen to the candidates who have followed bernie sanders lead. cory booker, julian castro, tulsi gabbard, kamala harris, andrew yang bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. they say 56 overall support
4:49 am
this and that's what i'm running on. but then when you tell these people get rid of private insurance and we will raise your taxes that number drops to 3 37%. and once you expose what this is, it is nothing but a campaign slogan. it's not practical or feasible. >> and it has taken us away from the real dialogue. of the real dialogue is that we can have healthcare reform. last week i co-sponsored legislation to remove the medical device tax. the medical device tax takes away money from research and development, which is what americans really want. they want cutting edge therapy. we can provide them with that and we can do that with a bipartisan ability to reach across the aisle and come to that compromise that will allow the best healthcare to occur in our own country. brian: congressman, if republicans don't do anything on healthcare, they will lose again in 2020. they ignore the problem. they cut up obamacare and left it in tatters and said

5:02 am
washington to explain. unwind us. reporter: let's unwind it. aoc and her chief of staff could be in serious trouble with the sec. 35 page complaint filed by the national legal policy center accuses her chief of staff funneling $885,000 from two political action committees or pacs to two private companies that chakrabarti controls. here is a key part of the complaint. it reads, appears respondents had off the books operation to make 100,000 of dollars of expenditures for multiple candidates for federal office. what does that matter? it would potentially aoc's campaign to report money to fec violating the disclosure clause. this lack of transparency why critics like aoc says is dark money. it presents not only potentially heel problem for aoc but also a
5:03 am
political one, comes on a day today she is introducing a bill before the congress to get every transaction on wall street taxed. now the pacs in the complaint say the money was used for strategic consulting but the fec will have a chance if they choose to do so to investigate it. we reached out to aoc's office and communications director. they have not responded. you will hear something about it, she will have to answer for pretty much violating the very thing she accuses others of doing. guys? steve: what irony. griff, thank you very much. there was a former fec commissioner on the air here yesterday and said that aoc and her chief of staff could face major fines and even jail time if they knowingly violated the law. what is extraordinary about this is, so you know, this are limitations on how much money you can give to a political action committee, a pac but then for the guy who ran the pac and
5:04 am
it was, guy right back there on the phone, her chief of staff, to then divert the money into these private corporations, there is just no transparency. so you don't know where those contributions went. ainsley: can't track the money. if you're one of these democrats, you gave mon to one of her pacs, he, according to this complaint, he took $885,000 out of the pacs. then shifted into private companies he controlled. the judge said, judge napolitano, said he could use that money to pay his mortgage or car payments. listen what else he says? >> where is the money now? it is in a private corporation which is not a political action committee. such a huge amount of money, steve. it could be a mistake. but it would depend how it happened. were there many wire transfers? did it happen at once? appears as though it was an act of deception. that puts them in a dangerous category. mistakes the fec will forgive,
5:05 am
may fine you for them. deception they call the justice department. ainsley: jason chaffetz who number of years was chairman of the house oversight committee, he looks as this as a big problem if accurate. >> there are campaign limits to what you give to a campaign, what you can give to a pac, how the pac discloses that and how they disperse this money but it appears, at least based on the allegation that these pacs were created, these llcs, these companies were formed in an elaborate scheme to funnel money, nearly a million dollars. this is about as serious of an allegation as it gets. it includes fines and going to jail, if it was all true and found guilty. brian: that was not only investigation believe it or not on capitol hill with this guy donald trump. jerry nadler, people thought he would be aggressive as chairman of judiciary, man has he overdid himself.

steve: certain media outlets that rushed to report that the tax refunds were smaller this year are suddenly silent. new irs data showed refunds increased, not decreased. ainsley: tax refunds rising 1.3% from last year. brian: charles payne, host of "making money" on the fox business network join us to weigh in. we have to beat the april deadline to file taxes. we've seen returns already. what returned on the returns? >> more returns come in. numbers have changed. almost like calling a baseball game in the first inning. maybe some folks in the media thought the score would change and so let's leap on this bad news while it is quote, unquote, bad news. i think it was just, dishonest, certainly nefarious, perhaps, who got caught up in the more than anyone else kamala harris who tweeted this out, we told
5:17 am
you so. you're not making any money from the tax plan. irony of course this is the kind of story the media put out before these returns came. your refund might be smaller because the major goal of the 2018 tax overhaul was to put more money back in the pockets of working americans. that was the kind of honest, reasonable stuff we saw before returns came in. ainsley: how does that affect the economy and markets? >> well the headlines, let me tell you, i have a premise, the media, america's media almost pushed america into recession, the media. steve: when? >> in december. we got late december data is just coming in. savings in november was 6.1%. they went to 7.6% in december. that number is unheard of. what is more remarkable, incomes went up 1%. 150% more than wall street thought. our incomes are soaring. it is december. we stopped spending and we saved all this money. if you look at all the headlines
5:18 am
in the month of december, which by the way influenced the algorithms which also pushed the market lower, i'm telling you that america's media was this close to pushing america into a recession. steve: but, charles, people who live in high state taxes like this one right here and the higher income earners with property taxes and stuff like that, they're getting less money. >> absolutely. steve: those are the same people progressive are targeting anyway. >> everybody knew that happened. it was big debate among republicans that represented california, new york, new jersey. brian: peter king. >> these were not a surprise. headlines, it was surprise, it was bait and switch that it was dishonest. bottom line overwhelming of majority of americans kept more money last year. the good news the government kept less of your money. brian: big picture, market went
5:19 am
down a little bit, went up a little bit yesterday. what does that have to do with the china trade deal and economy. >> i think the china trade deal is done. i think it will be better than anything we could have gotten from the world trade organization. it will be a boon to america's economy and china's economy because china will be an honest player. their defense spending is down again. that is north sort of sidebar all of this. they're spending less on defense. that is even better on the world. brian: the economy is not driving the revenue it was. >> exactly. steve: thank you, charles. brian: geraldo rivera going inside of america's opioid crisis, getting an in-depth look at one of the hard history towns in the country. he will join us live unless i misread the run-down. ainsley: she was killed by a friend over inheritance money and her killer could spend his life in jail.

continues to gain steam among young voters but do young voters fully understand what they're advocating. they point to scandinavian style socialism in denmark, norway, sweden as true socialism. one problem those countries are not socialist. socialism is reflected in venezuela, cuba, old soviet union. all economic disasters and brutally repressive states. joining us "new york post" columnist, fox news contributor, michael goodwin. this is exasperateing people grasp at something that is not there, saying that sweden and norway have been socialist forever. >> there is confusion not just on young people but a lot of americans. i think of socialism this way. it is about grievance. somebody else has more than i do. that is not fair. in age of inequality, where inequality is definitely growing in terms of income disparities there is a growth of grievance among the young and of course
