tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News March 14, 2019 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT
only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ >> i'm running to serve you as president of the united states of america. thank you for having us out. >> he has a lot of hand movement. i've never seen so much hand movement. i said is he crazy or is that the way he acts? >> neil: maybe that's a sign that you take this beto guy seriously. welcome. trump seems to frame people in a piffy line to signify they'll be recognized out of the gate. let's to it with mike tobin in
iowa where beto o'rourke is now blitzing the stage. hi, mike. >> hello, neil. lots of excitement in burlington. a packed house as beto o'rourke made it official and started barnstorming iowa. he pushed back against the notion that that race that put him on the map, the one against ted cruz, he lost it, albeit narrowly. >> i come from a red state where we were spoken for, written off, it wasn't worth the competition or the effort and we put text in play and frankly for the next nominee, 38 electoral votes in play. i was able to show by going to every single county that we will leave no one behind, that no one will be forgotten. >> at every stop, o'rourke talked about climate change as a crisis. he talked about bridging the hyper partisan divide. he's called no borders beto. he wants to decriminalize border
crossings. the president criticizing him for his hand gestures. neil? >> that's a sign that he's a little worried. we'll see. i read into those things. what is he up to? mike tobin. this is an interesting sort of phenomenon. this is the same guy that raised more than $70 million, close to $80 million in his senate campaign. most of that cash came from outside the state. but that cash was in small denominations. started with small offerings from people that were psyched by the guy. does that mean anything? caitlin owens examining that. what do you think of that? >> i think that small dollar donations are a good measurement of excitement about a candidate. beto drew a lot of national excitement. as you said, a lot of this money he received was not from texas. so we've seen other candidates in the past give a lot of grass
roots fund-raising going early on. bernie sander was one, barack obama was another one before him. so while a lot of candidates are embracing the small dollar donations fund-raising model, beto has been there, done that. >> shepard: how much of that was beto? how much of, you know, the democrats zeal to take down ted cruz? >> i think it's probably both. you know, he was -- he was surprisingly a strong candidate against cruz. now, why that is, we can debate all day. he's charismatic. his ability to spin a narrative helped him a lot. as the race got tighter, it was a self-reinforcing narrative where to democrats that wow, we're getting close in texas. we can take down cruz. it's a big deal. we should focus on this race. >> i was looking at the numbers. it's early. you're reminded of that.
but early small denominations offerings to candidates also looks good for kamala harris, also looks good for bernie sanders as it did last time. got him $6 million in the first 24 hours. all of that in small denominations. the logic is something to the effect that the big money follows first interest on the part of small money, right? >> i think that sounds about right. large donors wait to around to see who is drawing a tension especially when a field is this big. you don't want to waste money throwing it in early. the small dollar donations can be really important, especially throughout the race. but i think it marks who is leading the pack at the moment, who the american people are excited about. >> neil: do you get a sense right now in this race that some of the premier candidates, a top tear candidate will have no problem getting money and everybody else, as many as 15
others that don't, how is it looking? >> i think -- right now it's about name recognition. it's march of 2019. we're very early in the 2020 presidential race cycle. so that's why i think we're seeing people like joe biden who is not in the race officially. joe biden, bernie sanders, beto, these people that have had a lot of media buzz over their career the last election psych until the case of beto, that's why this could change a lot going forward as people become more familiar with other candidates. >> neil: to your point, i want to emphasize here, if we knew in retrospect that the early money and energy that we notice with barack obama would signal that he would be a bigger threat than hillary clinton thought or for that matter going to before you were born and jimmy carter in 1976 was getting early interest
in the state of iowa, history could repeat itself. it bears watching. >> this will be an exciting race, neil. we don't know what will happen but should be fun for us. >> neil: we're following the money. caitlin owens of axios, thanks very much. beto o'rourke thinks that texas is in play and its 38 electoral votes and so does howard schultz. >> if donald trump loses texas, he can't get to 270 and chances are he does not get re-elected. if howard schultz decides to run for president and i enter the race, there's a good chance that texas for the first time since 1976 does not go republican. >> neil: think about that. the last time that state, the lone star state went democrat is when jimmy carter ran for presidency. since 2004 when john kerry won,
the president few presidential elections have seen tighter texas races with donald trump beating hillary clinton. the state used to be a swamper for the gop might be changing. foster thanks for coming. >> nice to be here. >> you're in austin, which is the stannout in texas, i'm told and a sign that liberals thrive there. i'm wondering, is it your sense that texas could turn, that democrats obviously poured a lot of money in the state with beto o'rourke thinking he had a chance to topple ted cruz? he didn't but he came close. what do you see happening? >> by the way, austin is referred to as the blueberry in the tomato soup. >> neil: i like that. >> but yeah, i think -- if you're a democrat, you have to be excited. the history as you pointed out
is daunting. no presidential wins since 1976. no statewide wins since 1994. a quarter century. people look to o'rourke's performance where he got within 2.6 points in the last election. they look to the changing demographics and the enthusiasms that the democrats had in 2018. i was looking at the numbers. i forgot this. o'rourke had significantly more votes than hillary clinton did in 2016. they add that up and they think there's some potential there. but i'm fairly skeptical for a variety of reasons. as you also pointed out, o'rourke spent on the order of $79 million. he got 6% more than paul sadler got, sadler got 42% in the 2012 race against cruz. all right. if you want to spend $70 million and lose by 2 1/2, do that. so i think that's why republicans are still waiting to see whether texas is really in
play. >> neil: should they worry that is it is and spend time there? democrats would be just as happy if they have to reallocate resources there. >> it's a good point. i think the republicans are going to have to shore up texas. trump is not particularly popular here by republican standards. that was a common theme for all the republicans in 2018 in texas that had trouble. you had -- the lieutenant governor's race, the attorney general's race and with cruz. unpopular republicans, they won by won by single digits and low single digits. trump, i think, there's a strong argument falls into that category. a relatively unpopular republican. then you have a home grown beto o'rourke as a potential challenger. that i think would be cause for concern. i also point out, neil, times have changed with respect to campaign financing. you mentioned when you and i watched this stuff in the 80s and 90s, people were talking public funds, an $80 million cap in total spending.
spending in texas was a privilege nobody could afford. nowadays candidates are racing 200, 300 million. the cost of putting dollars in texas here. >> neil: if the president were to lose that state, where would he pick up the 38 electoral votes that he doesn't have there? >> he doesn't. partly because the math doesn't work. partly because losing texas would be indicative of weakness all across the board. i do agree with schultz comment on that front. if he loses texas, he won't win. >> interesting. so glad you're working with us in making sense of this. good to have you, professor. >> thank you. >> neil: i want to go half a world away. you're looking live at tel aviv. residents are still on high alert. earlier sirens were blaring after an apparent rocket attack from the gaza. two rockets could be seen flying over the city.
one of them landed in an uninhabited area. there's no reports of injuries. remember, the israelis have this dome as they like to call it that can stop rockets mid flight. israeli tv station reporting the rockets were iranian made. we haven't heard that confirmed by the iranians themselves. the prime minister, benjamin netanyahu is set to meet with military advisers in tel aviv. we'll keep you posted. n jellyfi, prevagen has been shown in clinical trials to improve short-term memory. prevagen. healthier brain. better life. we're oscar mayer deli fresh your very first sandwich,m... your mammoth masterpiece. and...whatever this was. because we make our meat with the good of the deli and no artificial preservatives. make every sandwich count with oscar mayer deli fresh. you should meet our newest team schwab, bmember, tecky.do that,

breathe freely fast, with vicks sinex. my congestion's gone. i can breathe again! ahhhh i can breathe again! ughh.. vicks sinex, breathe on >> i hope it's going to be for a short period of time. they have to find out what it is. that's the biggest thing. i'm not sure they know. i thought we had to do it. we had to take a cautionary route. >> the president defending the decision to ground the 737 max jets as the investigation continues into the ethiopia crash. now word that the planes could
be grounded forget about this week, try months. jeff flock is at chicago o'hare with the fallout from this. hi, jeff. >> the impact already being felt, neil. you can see the customer assistance line. these people need to be rebooked. others the result of the weather today. we have the bomb cyclone causing problems, too. i want to bring you to the cancellation board. give you a tweet that is emblematic of a lot of passengers today. take a look at this one. we're scheduled to fly in 24 hours. both on a 736 max. the flight is not showing cancelled. am i flying? the answer is at this point we don't know. what the airlines are doing, they're not cancelling all the 737 max flights. we could cancel another flight and your plane move on. so look at the boards.
the yellow and the read means cancelled or delayed. a lot up there. so i take you to perhaps the other thing that we don't know, and that is the information about that black box. the ethiopian aircraft black box is in france to be analyzed. as the president says, we don't know yet. may take us awhile. as you say, could be weeks or months. that wouldn't be great. passengers feeling good about the fact that they feel any aircraft that could be a problem is on the ground and they feel safe. take a listen. >> i feel like now they did a good job at managing our safety. i feel safe. >> i was told that planes are safer than cars. we're going to roll with that one today. >> and neil, i leave you with this. we put things in perspective. the number of max jets compared
to the number of jets, the fleet, the u.s., 7,309 aircraft. max jets grounded, 72. you don't need to be a mathematician. that's less than 1%. we're safe. >> neil: there were a lot on order. i'm wondering, it's too early to tell -- >> over 4,000. >> what do carriers do, swap out or whatever. we don't know. >> planes can last longer. they buy the new aircraft because they think they're a good buy, use less fuel but they keep the old planes longer if they have to. it's not going to be a great impact to the carriers. the impact will rest solely with boeing. >> neil: thank you. jeff flock. jeff referred to the so-called bomb cyclone, the wicked weather system exploding across the midwest. we look at the fallout from this storm but it's already substantial.

the storm is weakening. take a look at these wind gusts. winds are at 62 miles in north platte, nebraska. 61 miles in louisville, kentucky. a line of storms moving through. the wind is strong. blizzard warnings across north dakota, the panhandle of nebraska. we've seen the heavy rain and that's been causing the flooding conditions. this is what happens overtime. you can see the front with this, moving to the east. cooler air moving in behind it. the center of the storm goes up across parts of canada and water going to see less impact of the sometime by the time we get to tomorrow. we have tornado watches here all across parts of the ohio valley, stretched across the deep south. no tornado warnings at this moment to the northern side of this. we have damage in paducah, kentucky and do you to the southern side of this, this was a tornado warning here just to the southeast of jackson. so be watchful.
i think we'll likely see a new tornado watch box pop up throughout the evening. these two spots, water looking at the threat for severe weather. we could see a chance for large long-lasting tornado. that's what we certainly need to watch, a lot of population zones with that. you can see this warm or spring-like air towards the east. that will begin to move off tomorrow. cooler temperatures come in behind this storm. we still have to get through another 12 hours and finally this really amazing storm across parts the midwest. >> neil: thanks, rick. when will spring be gone? >> one day. >> neil: i know. okay. now to a political storm, the brexit storm. if you don't succeed, keep trying. the u.k. parliament voting to delay the brexit plan with the european union for another three months. no guarantee that that will hold. theresa may has a lost shot at
getting parliament to vote on her withdrawal agreement next week, whatever that agreement is. let's go to jerry baker from the "wall street journal." amazing interviewer. amazing guest. i want to get to that. jerry, i'm looking at this. you know it better than i am wondering, what's going on? it's been almost three years. >> you don't want me to explain what is happening with brexit. can we not talk about that? >> neil: i mean -- >> the basic problem is that -- the basic problem is the british people voted to leave three years ago. you have a parliament that doesn't want to leave. >> they don't want to bolt. the people do. >> they accept they have to do it. they're going to try to do it in a way that minimizes it. people talk about brino, like rhinos. they're trying -- a lot of members of parliament that don't want to happen at all but others
that do. in the mildest, most painless way. theresa may's deal, which is not a bad deal, probably the best deal you'll get in negotiating with the europeans, it's the terms on which the u.k. will leave the european union, which takes care of the biggest problem like ireland. there's all of these issues that they have to resolve. a lot of problems there. the particular challenge they have is this is all supposed to happen by march 29. under the legislation that was passed by parliament two years ago. as of today, they've had another round of votes in parliament. fun watching the votes. >> neil: love that, order, order. >> it's like a poetry. a certain poetry to the parliamentary process. a series of votes today.
the upshot is that they will extend the deadline. even that's complicated. they're going to ask the e.u. if they can extend it. it has to be agreed on both sides. the government is going to the e.u. and say we want more time to see if we can get another deal through parliament. still, the likeliest thing, they'll try to put theresa may's deal, try and do it one more time. the way they think things might have changed, because there's new a delay in the deadline, pushed the deadline back, they think that enough conservative mps that want to leave the eu but blocking this deal because they don't like the terms of the deal will have to sign up because if they don't sign up to this deal, the alternative is britain may not leave the eu at all and everybody's mind that would be disastrous. >> neil: do most britts want to leave? if you thought -- >> it's close.
all of the polling -- britain voted to leave by 52 to 48%. it's roughly the same. very close. >> neil: wouldn't all of this have been resolved -- >> i don't think -- it's a complicated thing. what they could have done, neil, you're right in this respect, they could have said from the start, we're getting out. we're not going to have a close relationship with the e.u. we're leaving may. if there's a deal, if we can negotiate a deal, that's good. if we can't, we're going anyway. right from the start, theresa may and the government said we want a deal. they went into this negotiation saying we're going to have a close relationship and a good deal with you. it would be like going to a negotiations to buy a car around saying whatever happens going to the showroom, i'm going to leave with this car.
you have to walk away. the british government at no point said if we don't get a deal, we're going to walk away. >> neil: and tomorrow night at 9:30 on the fox business network, you have a special guest. >> yes. steve bannon will come on. >> neil: an interesting guy. >> will have to worked hard to get him to say something interesting. he's a controversial figure. he's a smart guy. he was a very important figure in the president's election. played a key role in the first six months in the administration. he's got a lot of enemies certainly and said a lot of controversial things. i want to get his judgment on president trump's first two years and what he thinks, what has worked, what has not worked, what needs more work. also, he's going to talk about the 2020 democrats and what he thinks. >> neil: he can't resist. that is coming friday tomorrow night at 9:30. i work with this fellow on the presidential debate. his meticulous to planning and
research and candidates that were not expecting him say incredible stuff. watch that show. as jerry and i talked, we're getting news out of boeing. they're going to pause deliveries of the 737 max jetline jetliners. there's 4,700. they're going to hold off on those because of whatever you make of those -- about 80 directly affected by whats going on with the planes right now in the united states. thousands more are on order. now boeing is saying hold that order. we'll have more after this. car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. over to you, logo. liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪

serious allergic reactions, low blood cell counts, higher liver tests and cholesterol levels. don't start xeljanz xr if you have an infection. your doctor should perform blood tests before and while taking xeljanz xr, and monitor certain liver tests. tell your doctor if you've been somewhere fungal infections are common and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. don't let another morning go by without talking to your rheumatologist about xeljanz xr. >> bigotry is impeachable. if there's people -- >> neil: you have to prove bigotry, right? you have to prove the kind of stuff you outline there. it's a loose standard, right? >> it's not a loose standard. >> neil: even though nancy pelosi was saying goo slow in the impeachment stuff, he's not. he thinks the president should be impeached. what did you think of that? >> nancy is right. a huge distraction without the probability of success.
>> neil: are democrats divided on this issue? take it off the table for now. can the president take her at her word or is the rebellious part of the party going to continue to pursue this? "the washington examiner"'s capri cafaro. are democrats in a pickle on this? they can continue hearing, which might not lead to anything but keep embarrassing the president but there's that want to run it up. >> i agree with steny hoyer and nancy pelosi on this. it's bad politics. sets up a circumstance to say look, the democrats are targeting me. this is about politics. it's not a good narrative to go to 2020 with. that won't help the democrats win. they need to stand for something. ly say this. i do this that there are members of democratic house caucus in particular that are waving the
impeachment flag, but this issue is that important that i think nancy pelosi will be able to keep her caucus in check. people are not going to go rogue and try to get impeachment done. i'll say this. people have introduced articles of impeachment before. they did that in the last congress, too. they won't see the light of day. that's what's important. >> neil: that's the argument, that republicans have been hoping for, right? that they pursue this and implode. what do you -- >> i think implosion is a likely outcome if they do pursue it. nancy pelosi is an expert politics. she knows to expand leadership in washington d.c., it hinges on her controlling her unruly caucus. for every headline that a progressive in the house of representatives gets, there's someone like a steny hoyer or a more moderate member that is dieing to avoid that impeachment question because they're coming from a district or a state that voted for president trump. so nancy pelosi is playing her
card here where he knows as a member of leadership, she has to put a stake out there to avoid impeachment. it will alien net the voters for those that show up for senate races and the presidential in 2020. >> neil: can you have your cake and it too? if the cake is there, eat it. but having said that, just having hearings, even though you know won't lead to impeachment or start impeachment proceedings, those can be grinding and wear down the president, maybe hit his poll numbers and maybe that would suffice for some. >> pelosi has been on the case since she took the house. i feel like she's almost a character from greek mythology who has been cursed to answer the same damn question over and over again. she's trying to talk this down because it may way play well to the base of the democratic party but what republicans have, not only do republicans oppose this
but a majority of independents oppose it. she can say we're not serious about it. the republicans have to say, well, this is the thing. republicans can play that off of not just their own voters but also the independents. like you said, going to 2020 doing this, it's a grind. >> neil: it is. a lot was said on the mueller report when it comes out and what it says. you think that will move the needle on whether we get impeachment hearings? maddie? >> i think that 2020, the presidential folks right now are trying to make this a campaign on ideas. if you're a member of the house to propagate repeal of the tax cuts, medicare for all, green new deal, all of these ideas, you need a budget to do that. so far house democrats have been unable to deliver the most basic function of government. so i think it's hard for the house of representatives to lead the charge here for democrats trying to make a name for themselves. >> neil: capri, what do you think? >> i think at this point, look,
no matter what the senate is not going to basically vote for impeachment. it futile. i agree that we need to focus on doing the job of government. >> neil: that will win the day in the end or all things equal after that? >> if democrats want to be cunning about this, they can e pretend it like a obamacare repeal and jazz up the base and not deliver on it. >> neil: thanks. we're talking about the president and what he has to worry about. right now he has to worry about the timing of nancy pelosi signing something that he's vowed he would veto. get ready. it gets very dicey after this. guys go through a lot to deal with shave irritation. so, we built the new gillette skinguard with a specialized guard designed to reduce it. because we believe all men deserve a razor just for them. the best a man can get. gillette.
in the senate going along to say that's not a good idea, it goes to the president. he's promising a veto. the first of his presidency. rick scott sided with the president on that. senator, good to have you. >> thanks, neil. i absolutely voted with the president. i care about border security. floridians care about border security. i've been to the border. i talked to agents. they need more people and barriers. they have to have barriers to have control. for the safety of every american. >> neil: does that mean you feel the 12 republicans that bolted on this do not feel the same way? >> look, everybody is going to decide based on what is important to them. you know, other senators can vote anyway they want. i don't think about how people vote. i'm going to vote for floridians. doesn't matter what the white house thinks. i'm going to vote what is good
for families. >> neil: so the numbers being what they are, it would still be something that could not be overriden. if the president makes good on his promise to veto this. you think it will change things on the hill as a result? >> i don't know. i'm anxious for this to get behind us. i wish that democrats would do what they say they care about, care about border security. i want to get on to other issues. i'm focused on getting drug prices down. how about -- i'm a business guy. i want to get things done. >> neil: the president is arguing a wall is going up as we speak. democrats are saying no, it isn't. who is right? >> well, i believe the president is going to get things done. he's going to take the resources that he has now and he's going to get things done. he should get things done. he ran on getting -- for border security. americans believe in border security. i hope he does what he says he's

the guy that was like an organizer in this stuff, rick singer, apparently had a wire on him for the better part of some months here, you know, taping all of these calls with all of these people who were involved in this. it's very good to have you, andy. what do you make of this? >> i think it's all ridiculous. it's endemic of a bigger play to play system. he crossed the line. pay to play is nothing new in college or america. >> neil: i get that. but you knew this rick singer. he took it to a different level. what pay to play and pay to illegally play? >> i meet him in 2010 before he started doing this stuff. >> neil: what did you think of him? >> a very magnetic guy. i thought he was weird, the crazy eyes. you know, telling me about how he had steve jobs as a client --
>> neil: was he in this business back then? >> yeah. i met him as a colleague. we were in the legal side of coaching kids to get into colleges. >> you did it the legal way. the testing and all that, seeking out schools. >> legal. totally. of course it's legal. >> neil: so what was your i'm press of him and the stuff that he did? did he have any signs then? >> when i was introduced to him, i said by the way, i believe 80% of the guy out of his mouth. he said he represented very wealthy people that got their kids into the side door of schools by brokering huge donations to their endowments. i thought that is scummy but i know that goes on. at some point hi crossed the line and started getting into bribing coaches and having proctors -- >> neil: but if that is all true and that's what the government
alleges here, do you think the schools had to be aware or no? they're not being fingered in this. you're right. individual coaches are. athletic directors i believe. but that's as far as it gets? >> it's impossible for me to comprehend that they couldn't aware, that the kid couldn't play tennis without a scholarship. it's dumb, which is possible or they turned -- showed willful blind me, turned the other way. it's -- >> neil: you and i touched on this with fox business, which if you don't get you should demand. one of the things that came up, i would see the ivy league schools. some of these weren't ivy league schools. what was that about? >> i'm scratching my head over that one, too. so you're talking about the university of san diego, a fine school. it's 50% of its applicants.
it's easy to get in. it's not a prestigious school, this is about the prestige. chasing the prestige. why would someone who is the ceo of a billion dollar company care where his kids go to school? will it give them a leg up or does he want the rear window sticker to plaster on his car -- >> neil: harvard, yale. i don't mean to besmirch san diego. but seems like you're going through a lot of trouble for something that you might legally get into. >> that, too. it's like big insurance policy. a lot of times parents hire me because they want someone to coach and guide their kids. so they don't have to deal with it or don't have the expertise, the accountability and time management. yeah, i don't understand why by getting into a school 50% is a prize. >> neil: let me ask you about the kids that remain. now they got news about their parents. some knew, maybe didn't know. you think the schools should boot them? >> i have a hard time -- if i
were a students there or another parent of a kid that went there, i would feel ripped off that someone had gotten in on false presences. i don't think they'll last there. they'll withdraw in shame for a lot of schools will say listen, you lied on your applications. you came under some kind of scummy thing. you can't stay. >> neil: you think this is bigger than we're told and the fact that he had a wire, information from a lot of people and it will be drip, drip, drip more? >> i know there's other people that do similar things that he does legally. i think a fraction of them do things what he does illegally by paying off other people. i expect there's more to come out. i'd be shocked if nothing out. >> thanks, andy. author of how to pay whole say for college. i don't know about ivy schools. >> yes. >> neil: okay. that's good to know. meanwhile, one of bob mueller's top guys is stepping down.
so, i started with the stats regarding my moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. like how humira has been prescribed to over 300,000 patients. and how many patients saw clear or almost clear skin in just 4 months - the kind of clearance that can last. humira targets and blocks a specific source of inflammation that contributes to symptoms. numbers are great. and seeing clearer skin is pretty awesome, too. that's what i call a body of proof. humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections, including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection.
want more proof? ask your dermatologist about humira. this is my body of proof. we're oscar mayer deli fresh your very first sandwich,m... your mammoth masterpiece. and...whatever this was. because we make our meat with the good of the deli and no artificial preservatives. make every sandwich count with oscar mayer deli fresh.
♪ >> neil: you know, everyone wonders what does this mean? fox news can now confirm that the lead prosecutor on bob mueller's team andrew weissmann will be leaving in the near future we are told. is this a sign the russian probe itself will be over in the near future? i didn't know that i know catherine herridge knows. she follows this relentlessly. what does this mean, catherine? >> for one thing weissmann was in charge of the manafort prosecution. this week it brand up with the second sentencing. those close to weissmann said he would not leave if there was still major legal work on the table for special counsel. also today roger stone got a trial date of november 5th and a mid september status hearing as he left court stone shunned reporter questions. gag order was not modified which had been expected.
he is still free to fund raise for his defense and his innocence but cannot discuss the special counsel case charges he lied to congress about his communications about the hacked democratic emails. for now, judge amy burman jackson sit aside the issues surround go ahead stone's book the myth of russia collusion and whether it violated the gag order. outside the court special trump aide questioned whether the same judge could be neutral after handing paul manafort another three years in jail and criticizing his defense team from the bernanke. bench. >> i don't know why this judge has not recused herself but that's just me. i don't get it. i don't get especially how yesterday what she said at the manafort sentencing. it seemed to me that she can't be non-biased if they get to a sentence. >> neil, that's all i have got for you. stay tuned because i'm sure there be more tea leaves to read tomorrow.
>> neil: yeah, you are right. whatever comes out of the report, i noticed that the senate doesn't want a public release of bob mueller's report. the house does. so where are we on that? >> look, the statute known as cfr-600 is pretty clear on that. it states that the mueller report is confidential to the attorney general. and william barr testified his interpretation of the statute that he expects to provide summaries of mueller's finding. not the raw intelligence to congress and that as much as possible to the public. so really it's driven or governed by the statute at this point, neil. >> neil: but, your sense on the timing of the release. we still don't know, right of the report itself? >> we don't but i really think it is not going to be a short report. >> neil: that's interesting. you are being very guarded. i like that. >> i don't like to speculate on these things. facts drive it. >> neil: let the facts drive it that's an interesting concept. thank you. >> you are welcome. >> neil: i do want to say
