associated with that the dakota access pipeline that you're describing. >> laura: the point was the bank didn't build the pipeline, which is what he said. we didn't build it, okay? we just financed it. we did our own risk assessment. my friends, shannon bream and the "fox news @ night" team is next and they are in new york. shannon, take it away. >> shannon: with that a little bit more of that hearing too, thank you very much, laura. we begin tonight with a fox news alert. leslie hoffman released on a $250,000 bond tonight. plus gloria laughlin along with almost 50 other wealthy individuals implicated in a college admissions bribery scam, exactly how it worked and just how high up into the ivy league world does it go? we will give you details. and stick around for lara trump. she joins me in studio. she's got plenty to say about that scandal. plus she responds to the breakfast club's interview with us last night taking shots at the commander in chief, why she think the president should vision what has been dubbed the world's most dangerous stomach
dangerous radio show. hello and welcome to fox news at night. i'm shannon bream in new york. we begin with trace gallagher from rla bureau, rocking the rich and powerful, good evening. >> good evening, operation varsity blues apparently began in 2011 and ended last month with 33 parents so far paid anywhere from 200,000 to $6.5 million to get their kids into elite colleges. federal agents say the scam was run by a college and career counselor named william singer who would direct the parents to give the money to his charity and in turn would use that money to bribe college coaches, administrators, even testing centers. the goal was to inflate s.a.t. and act scores, or pretend nonathletes were star athletes. the fed say he would lie and say students had learning disabilities to allow them to take the test alone, and then he would have a proctor either take the test for the student or sit with a student and provide answers. in some cases the testing
centers themselves would fabricate the results. for example, prosecutor state actress felicity huffman paid $15,000 to boost her daughter's s.a.t. score and lower stomach lo and behold by cheating and went up 400 points. her husband, actor william h. macy was not charged. as for creating college athletes, a cooperating witness told prosecutors they would simply fake athletic credentials, even photoshop faces of the students onto the bodies of actual athletes. actors lori laughlin and her husband paid $500,000 to have their two daughters recruited to the university of southern california's routine even though the girls had never wrote a book to increase their credentials the father sent pictures of his daughters on rowing machines. the harvard law professor emeritus alan dershowitz. >> this was the worst scandal involving elite universities in the history of the united states. lifted me no doubt about this.
nobody can diminish the importance of this. >> many of the suspects have agreed to cooperate, including a former yale women's soccer coach was paid $400,000 for recruiting a girl who never played competitive soccer. the scam also includes schools like georgetown, stanford, ucla, wake forest and several others. so far no students have been charged. shannon. >> shannon: just wonder how they thought they were going to get away with this for good. by the way tonight, i understand has been some political reactio reaction. >> white house advisor kellyanne conway went after the accused actresses posting on twitter, quoting here "lori locklin and felicity huffman indicted for lying and buying spots in college. they worried their daughters are as stupid as their mothers and later, conway tweeted "two actresses get most attention for college admissions cheating scandal, yet 48 others were charged too. coaches, athletic directors took millions, ceos, author ironically titled the modern girl's guide to life, you failed
these kids" and donald trump jr. tweeted "is it just me or is everyone hollywood strangely silent today? come on, guys, you're always very vocal in forcing your opinions on everyone. what changed? " there were some hollywood tweets, by the way, but the big stars apparently took a pass on this one, shannon bream >> shannon: trace gallagher live and rla bureau, thank you, trace. her brother-in-law donald trump jr. claiming crickets from hollywood and reaction to what alan dershowitz called one of the greatest scandals of the 21st century, let's get reaction from bartram, eric trump 2020 campaign advisor. always good to see you. >> think you come over to be with you. >> shannon: i've been obsessed with this story all day. it's one of the things that makes people say my kid has fought so hard, worked on their s.a.t.s, done community work and yet there were people who are able to write checks and get their kids into these amazing schools. >> it so not right on so many levels and then you look at who these people are. the hollywood elite, the liberal
elite who are always about equality for all and everyone should get a fair shot when here is the biggest hypocrisy of all that they are writing checks to cheat and get their kids into the schools when the spots really should have gone to get that were actually deserving of them and i feel really sorry for their kids. what kind of lesson is this teaching them? and then you see the one girl who said she's going to go and party. she's not even sure she's going to go to school. it's a real shame, but it's finally showcasing what is out there and really the hypocrisy that exists within this liberal and hollywood elite culture. >> shannon: you think about kids as you mentioned you didn't get a chance. lisa bloom, an attorney a lot of folks know very well, she's is the real victims here are low income kids who worked hard, overcame the odds and didn't get in because wealthy families who already had a huge advantage cheated. if these allegations are true, this is so shameful. >> it's disgusting. it's terrible. we should be as a society lifting these kids up, giving them the opportunities here. that is how the system is designed to work.
we see though at that at the end of the day the buck talks and unfortunately there are so many kids that really missed an incredible opportunity here. i'm sure they all went to great schools anyway but this really isn't right and i think these people should be held accountable for what they did and we are going to see what happens but it has been very interesting to watch. >> shannon: some serious allegations, innocent until proven guilty but that complaint -- i know you are watching last night. we had a very interesting group on, the world's most dangerous breakfast show, reprogram i'm a very, very well known, the breakfast club. >> i listen to them on the radio. >> shannon: there really interesting. it's only 2020 2020 competitor, democrats come on. they are not huge fans of the president but i did talk to them about whether they would have him on they were like sure. but then this was the rest of their reaction. >> i don't think it would come because i don't think he cares about our audience. if there's nothing about donald trump that makes me think he cares about black and brown people. >> a lot of hurtful things he said that personally have offended me. >> shannon: and talk about the fact that they don't feel like
he is really appealing to the minority audience that he would care about talking to the listeners. what you make make a vacuum? >> that's crazy and that's ridiculous. by the way, i think it would be great on the show. >> shannon: i think it would have fun. >> i think you would really surprise them. he's never scared of an interview, never scared of a challenge and actually think it's a shame that they are not recognizing the incredible things that this president has done for the african-american community. you look at the fact that under our first black president, president barack obama we had almost 10% unemployment in the african-american community. now that has almost been cut in half thanks to donald trump, a historic low with those numbers. you look at what this president has done for historically black colleges and universities, giving them so much more money to promote them and help them on their way, you look at things like the first at backs, which is going to but i help the black community and underprivileged communities really have an impact on the families there. so for them to say that he doesn't care about their audience, that he doesn't care about the black community, that's absolute nonsense. i would like them to go on there and be able to state his claim
because that's just not true. >> shannon: we were kind of joking less by the people had texted me, like they would pay money to see that. i think it would have fun sparring together and having a good conversation. >> he would actually impress them and i think it would have a good time. >> shannon: heading to 2020, the election is right on the corner. it seems like you are prepping from your getting ready. how to see better sell this message to people who feel like maybe he doesn't appeal directly to them? if there are worries about suburban women and some other groups that there are those who say don't think is going to do well with them in 2020. >> i just think overall people have to look at their life now versus two or three years ago and are they doing better? do they feel like the family has better opportunities? do they have a full time instead of part-time job now? i think people vote with their wallets and their pocketbooks and even though they are not going to tell anybody, shannon, they're going to go on a voting booth and they are going to vote for donald trump and they're going to come out and not till the poster, the exit poster on the wet, they may not tell their friends and family but i think the president is doing an incredible job now.
i don't know that he needs to sell anything to anybody. i think he just needs to keep doing what he's doing. i do think as republicans and as a campaign it is incumbent upon us to make sure we showcase what the democrats are offering, which is socialism and what that would mean for our country. it would be incredibly detrimental. you see venezuela and the mess they are in. that is a great example of a socialist-run country. so i think that that is work that we have to do. i think the president just keeps doing what he's doing. be when he always enjoys it. he enjoys being out there with friends and enemies, he enjoys the sparring. he enjoys the rally with the happy crowds as well and we know you're often a part of that as well. thanks for making time, great to see you. >> thank you. >> shannon: that this is a fox news alert. the u.s. and canada are the only countries currently allowing the boeing 737 max eight airplane to continue flying following sunday's fatal crash in ethiopia. tonight, new calls for the planes to be pulled from service right here in america. correspondent doug mckelway picks up the story from there.
>> the mother of an ethiopian airlines flight attendant grieved at the crash site today while investigators comb through the wreckage of the accident that left 157 people dead sunday while here in the u.s. pressure is mounting to ground the jet. >> the 737 max eight should be immediately grounded until the faa can assure us that they are safe. >> i think it makes sense not to ground the aircraft until we have better information. >> u.s. flight attendant threaten faith will not be forced to fly if they feel unsafe. lacking data from the black boxes still in the hands of the ethiopian investigators the faa as boeing noted today is not mandating any further action at this time and based on the information currently available, we do not have any basis to issue new guidance to operators. but one-third of the more than 350 max worldwide are grounded as more countries including britain, ireland, italy, poland
and australia join others who closed airspace. 58 a register to fly in the u.s. >> 737 max eight tomorrow so long as it had united southwest or american airlines on that side. >> one of the reasons the planes remain flying as the u.s. pilot training. >> it is very expensive to train pilots and simulators so a small force airline may cut down the training cycle. >> but the pilot and sunday's crash was reportedly retrained according to an faa airworthiness directive following the crash five months previous after take off on he radioed the control tower was having control problems. president trump spoke to the ceo today. coincidently after he tweeted "airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly and the complexity creates danger." >> a lot of seat-of-the-pants pilots agree that natural flying skills are diminishing in the age of automation and during in-flight emergencies. shannon.

♪ >> shannon: former vice president joe biden flirting with the 2020 presidential run yet again today. it speaks to union workers. correspondent here to tell us about the latest tease by his core constituency. >> the excitement palpable as former vice president joe biden took the stage in front of the international association of firefighters in washington on tuesday. >> i appreciate the energy you showed when i got up here. save it a little longer, and may need it in a few weeks. >> tonight long time delaware senator backed up that comment on fox news. >> he is all but certain to run and i'm hopeful that he will. i would say he is 95% there. >> he was uncomfortable territory in front of the firefighters union. born in scranton, pennsylvania, he has always touted his relationship with unions. and today he was there to talk
about what's going on in the white house. >> in america, everybody gets a shot. that's what the next president of the united states needs to understand and that's what i don't think this current president understands at all. >> the firefighters union is affiliated with the afl-cio which represents 12 and a half million workers. leaders with the afl-cio recently sent members of congress a letter expressing their outright disapproval of the green new deal, popular with some of the candidates vying for the white house. according to a new "des moines register" poll, biden, who hasn't even announced, is at the top. former tuckers congressman beto o'rourke, who also hasn't announced, rounds out the fifth spot. biden has seemed to be more of the centrist democrats compared to the rest of the pack with talk of socialism becoming mainstream. he took it from democrats recently when he called his successor, mike pence, a decent guy. >> i get criticized for saying anything nice about a republica republican. folks, that's not who we are.
>> of the clock ticks and perhaps more get in the race, the signs do point to a biden 2020 run, perhaps making his third time a charm. >> be careful what you wish for. be careful what you wish for. >> last week president obama praised his former number two while on a trip in canada. obama has yet to make an official endorsement that likely won't come for a while, but it certainly helps that biden is so close with the form president. shannon. >> shannon: it does, to his advantage. thank you very much. let's bring in fox news politics editor, editor of the half term report, chris stirewalt. great to see you tonight. what do you make of this new -- now we are going fast have a flirtation. i don't want to describe what's coming next. >> not you and i, but joe biden and the >> shannon: exactly in the american electorate. he cinching that way. >> he is and at this point if he doesn't it would be a real -- that would be a real mess up. if you've gone this far, if
you've teased that i may need your help in a few weeks, there's another report tonight that he had called another member of congress who said that he is ready to go. he said we are going to give it a shot. what i wonder about joe biden, i think this is a significant question that he faces, does he have the fire in the belly to do this? is the automatic front library he has argued with the most popular active politician in america today. we like him after they retire. joe biden is one of the most liked individuals who is still in the game. but the question for him is does he really want to do this? this is a year and a half of the most grueling kind of combat. you heard them tonight, today, sounds like he has a little bit of a cold. he is there doing it anyway. this is a grueling, brutal undertaking and you look at donald trump, who can stand on stage for two hours and 20 minutes like a human wood chipper spewing out whatever comes into his mind all along and loves it. from feeds on this stuff.
you better be ready to bring the fight. >> shannon: it is an exhausting process. it just us trying to follow them and keep up with them. these campaigns are really -- you have to be in it for the reasons that really drive your passion in your heart to get up and keep doing this all day everyday as you said for a year and a half. he talked about the fact that we seem to be at each other's throats, there's too much pettiness. it's all taken over, very divisive but it wasn't that long ago that i remember him talking about taking trump outback and beating him up, something like that. >> if joe biden used that phrase i would pay him $5 myself. but yes he said he would thrash him -- what we used to do to a bully like that, we take him out behind the gymnasium and beat him up or whatever. so look, joe biden was part of breaking american politics. joe biden has had a front row seat for breaking american politics going back to the world that he played in the anita hill hearings for which both democrats and republicans resent his actions.
he has been part of breaking this process. we remember him telling african-american audience in virginia in 2012 they want to put you all back in chains. joe biden can't just show up now and say that he fell off the back of a turnip truck and wasn't part of how our politics got broken. however, he does have an opportunity to be part of fixing it but it's got to be able to run a campaign that is both tough but also aimed at healing some of these divisions. >> shannon: and it will just depend on whether the new generation, the far left, very vocal younger generation would show up or whether there is going to be an embrace of potentially went back to the old school when things were little bit different but there are some things in the past he's got to answer for as well and he will find that out. you know the love fest is over as soon as you are officially in. >> that's the truth. >> shannon: are lovefest for your never ends. good to see you. after jussie smollett shows up for a court hearing he didn't have to attend. we will tell you why and a strategy he says for proving his

like truth, old-fashioned ideas like honor. there was a time in this country one in public schools we talked about honor and truth and god because even if you didn't believe in it, all of the founders who created the republic we have said that you can't have self-government without those things, without virtue. the idea that people are dying to get into colleges, cheating to get into colleges where you're going to be taught there's really no such thing as truth and it's all sort of situational ethics. it's very bad. it's everywhere and i have the parents college kids doing things like this. >> shannon: i get the impression from reading the complaint that some of these kids didn't know and the parents didn't want them to know that they were inflating their scores are doing those kinds of things. lori laughlin, the actress, is accused of paying $250,000, she and her husband for each of their daughters to get into usa. one of their daughters has a lot of social media and unfortunately that's coming back to bite her. here are some of it. >> i don't how much of school and going to attend but i'm going to come in and talk to my dean's everyone i hope that i
can try and balance it all. but i do want the experience of like game day partying, i don't really care about school, as you guys all know. >> shannon: she took a spot at usc that someone else did really care about. >> right, but she didn't have any idea what was going on. >> shannon: i don't know her case if she did. >> i thought that she had -- it will be interesting to see what the schools do. there are 33 students currently that were part of this scheme, the parents are part of the scheme were currently in school. it will be really tough on these schools. obviously they may discipline the people involved, but the kids of the big issue here because of these children didn't know what was going on or even if their parents pressure them to do it i don't know what 16, 17 or 18-year-old is going to say to their parents, absolutely not, i don't need help with this or that. i think the larger issue here and to your point about understanding about truth and virtue, i think we can do that without any sort of religious element. i think morality and ethics can exist there but this is what goes on in all developed nations
and undeveloped nations where there are rich people, which are everywhere, people pay to get into school. they wanted to draw a line this morning between buying buildings and the fraud. but all of it creates an unfair school system that penalizes people who don't have access to those resources. >> shannon: just so you know we are throwing video here, this is new, that appears to be the city have been there actress, who bonded out on $250,000 bond. that's where one person. with the cost for one. but apparently lori laughlin is traveling to l.a. to turn herself in as well. there are many other names you wouldn't recognize but these are people with money and opportunity and they saw a way to help their kids and allegedly took advantage of it. >> obviously it seems to be fraud. and the parents i think you've got to throw the book at them because you need to make examples of people to say this type of thing isn't going to be allowed to happen. i'm not so willing to let the
kids off the hook. there might be some that they can prove it was all done without their knowledge but some of these schemes they must have known. >> shannon: had to pose. allegedly lori laughlin's daughters had to pose as crew athletes. so there's conversations, and email and phone documented allegedly that there saying go pose the kids with the equipment so we can have the pictures of them with the crew equipment for the application. >> the kids that you have to be expelled as soon as possible because if you're going to make examples out of the parents who also have to make examples out of the kids so other rich people see what happened to the kids of other rich people who did it the wrong way and they would never want their kid -- $500,000 to usc for two kids before you pay a dollar of tuition. that is an interesting investment. >> shannon: >> a book that came6 called the price of admission which actually features the story about jared kushner's family and they pay $2.5 million for harvard.
>> you honestly don't think he would've gotten them in his own? >> i don't know him personally. i'm just saying a lot of people -- >> that's the darkest thing of this whole scandal, cheating on standardized tests. you think that's the one thing where everyone is equal and the idea that there are people who took money for that -- there's dirty money and then there's dirty money. it's a staggering thing to me that parents could do such a thing. it's just -- there certain things you could say well, but on that is incredible. i started really hard for my s.a.t.s. really hard. >> shannon: a perfect 1600. >> i may have. so long ago now. >> i didn't get all my own. >> shannon: i didn't even take one of the prep things, which was stupid on my part. >> did it help? >> it helped and i did well. i didn't cheat and my parents didn't pay for anything. how could they could stay at the school also with your peers at
that point? >> the parents are teaching their kids something so pernicious. it can imagine teaching your kids to lie and cheat and then when the kid says all their life and went to the school it's like but -- >> shannon: you've got to see where they can hang in academically. such a juicy story. we will keep talking about it, thank you all. our devout christians too extreme to be judges? you've seen it on capitol hill. now meet the judge who opponents say is too bigoted for the benc bench. >> she worked alongside an extremist hate group to try to strip hospital visitation rights away from gay partners. >> shannon: says he has no plans to back down from what he's calling an attack on his face. he joins us live next. ♪ [music playing] (vo) this is jerry.

>> the statement made is indefensible, it is hateful, it is islamophobic and it is an insult to over a billion muslims throughout the world. >> why is it that so many of us on this side have this very uncomfortable feeling that, you know, dogma and law are two different things and i think whatever a religion is, it has its own dogma.
>> shannon: judicial nominees increasingly under fire for their faith. the latest now in wisconsin. activists on the left say judge brian's lgbt rhetoric is dangerous but the conservative candidates as the criticism is really just an attack on his faith. he's hoping to fill a seat on wisconsin's supreme court, the election just weeks away. he joins us. a judge, good to have you with us. >> hey, great to be with you. >> shannon: okay, so let's talk about you've had people come after you to say that you are too extreme. i've seen reports that you were dangerous. there are groups that have withdrawn their endorsements from you because of writings of things they say they are not concerned about. i want to read something from one wisconsin now, the research director there says not only does she think that you would reverse roe vs. wade, also you would go even further, endorsing a measure that would outlaw most birth control, could ban in vitro fertilization and stem cell research. is that what you support? >> no, you know, that
organization as well as a whole bunch of the special interest groups that are allied with my opponent are making an awful lot up. i have said from the beginning that my job as a judge is to say what the law is, not what i think the law should be and to apply the law. i do think i need to follow precedent from the supreme court. whether i agree with it or not, and i've said that. they're really pulling out statements from organizations supporting me and trying to ascribe those policy positions to me and of course i've been consistent in saying my job as a judge isn't policy. my job as a judge is to be faithful to the law. >> shannon: i want to play a little bit of an add also that refers to a christian school that you helped to start. here's an ad against you in this race. >> and he helps run a new school that bands students, teachers and parents from being gay. ask the judge, with views like this, how can he possibly be fair? >> shannon: is that true?
>> no. if so my wife and i a few years ago we did start a christian school for our kids in that school does have a statement of conduct that staff is required to follow. that statement of conduct is no different than you would find it so many other christian schools, catholic schools, other kinds of schools with people of faith on the country. it requires staff to follow christian teachings, including that no contact outside of marriage. this is a private school. it has a constitutional right to carry out and believe what it believes and to operate that wa way. and so my volunteering and my being a part of that school is now -- people send them on qualify for office. and really what i think it is his, like i said, just an effort to disqualify people of faith more generally and quite frankly it's dangerous. how many parents out there are sending their kids to catholic schools or other kinds of christian schools that have exactly the same kinds of policies? you don't even need to be a
christian to go to our school at all. and so, so much is misleading and it's really just an effort to say to people of faith you can be a part of public life, which i think reveals the biases of those who are opposing. >> shannon: we've seen us on the hill with federal nominees. there's been quite a dustup between both sides of the aisle about what's appropriate and what's not when asking people about what their personal beliefs would do to impact theirs is a judge and as you said, everyone can agree that a judge's role is to be impartial, to enforce the law as it is, not as they would want to be. we will follow your race. thank you for coming up. we will invite your opponent as well and we will watch the race to see what happens. >> thanks, great to be with you today. i appreciate it. >> shannon: break into make him a report that gavin newsom is expected to sign an executive order tomorrow to suspend the use of the death penalty in his state. he plans to close the death chamber in san quentin state prison, granting reprieves to the some 700 inmates currently now on death row.
