8:00 pm
school systems, and have citizenship. that must happen. >> laura: anything else? there you have it. you want to expand social security benefits to illegal immigrants by that is all the time we have tonight. i drop a brand-new podcast today, be sure to check it out at podcast podcastone.com or i. shannon bream and "fox news @ night" team to take it all from here. >> shannon: thank you so much. hello, welcome to "fox news @ night." i am bream in washington. 2020 hopeful beto o'rourke kicks off campaigning in new hampshire tonight. doubling down on some of his most controversial issues, like third trimester abortions. plus stick around for about the fact-checkers are saying get totally wrong about climate change. the latest on the radical positions of presidential hopefuls as we countdown to 2020. abolishing the electoral college. beto mentioned that as well. he's far from the only democrat pushing for that. what were getting rid of the electoral college actually do and the president has just spoken out on that. we.
8:01 pm
we are debated. president trump palling around at the white house with the trump of the tropics, suggesting brazil could become a nato member. what president jair bolsonaro is saying about his exclusive interview right here on "fox news @ night" last night. we have fox team coverage. trace gallagher and ellie following the push to abolish the electoral college we began with molly line in new hampshire on beto's increasingly progressive plans. good evening, molly. >> good evening, shannon. beto o'rourke rolling here into the granite state. speaking before a big and warm welcoming crowd at keene state college. he's received a lot of attention in his early start to the beginning of this competition among these democratic candidates for his fund-raising prowess. even today, as he praised the granite states unique place in the process, he also talked a lot about texas. texas will have a seat at the table in the democratic nominating process and is he to the table and selecting the next president. those 38 electoral college votes are now in play and that is
8:02 pm
something he hopes to be able to bring to the national campaign. in other words, the man who gave national prominence by losing a senate race in his home state says a win in his card if he is the nominee. >> we can run back texas combo we've proven we know how to campaign, we've listened to the stories our fellow texans have told us. we've incorporated it in the way we've campaigned and the way i wish to serve. >> the congressman has already caught some flack over the early days were being short on specifics. something he got called out this morning at an event in pennsylvania. >> were never going to get an actual policy from you instead of just platitudes and nice stories? >> we try to be as specific as i can. they mentioned our criminal justice system, i called for the end of the prohibition on marijuana and the expungement of the arrest records that everyone who's been arrested for marijuana.
8:03 pm
>> some of the democratic white house hopefuls have already made multiple stops, visits here to the first in the nation primary state of new hampshire. but for a war, this is his first. he wants to cover a lot of ground while he's here. he plans to visit all ten counties on this trek through new hampshire. shannon? >> shannon: molly line, thank you very much. another day, another far left litmus test. a growing number of 2020 contenders latching onto another big idea, one night after we reported here on a radical proposal to expand the supreme court, tonight democrats are taking aim at the actual process of electing the president. when our framers put a lot of thought into. trace gallagher is on the case if the electoral college night. hey, shannon. when it comes to politics, california has two things that stand out, lots of liberals and lots of delegates. because the golden state has moved up with 2020 primary to march 3rd, and analysts say the democratic presidential candidate may be forced to embre a more progressive agenda, like supporting the green new deal
8:04 pm
and ditching the electoral college. beto o'rourke, who not too long ago ran for texas senator as a centrist democrat, today lamented hillary clinton's 2016 lost or donald trump and told students at penn state, there is a lot of wisdom in getting rid of the electoral college, saying, "because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor. it puts some states out of play altogether. they don't feel like they're both really count." beto statements comes one day after his senator elizabeth warren brushed a similar plan, telling the crod at historically black jackson state university in mississippi that she supports national voting, meaning, to get rid of the electoral college. today former barack obama campaign manager jim messina said eliminating the electoral college is "not going to happen," saying it would lead to ignoring entire states, "we would never go to small states if there was no electoral college. you would go to the major media markets, you would not go to
8:05 pm
iowa, you wouldn't go to montana, you wouldn't go to new hampshire. south carolina g.o.p. senator lindsey graham agreed, according again, "the desire to abolish the electoral college is driven by the idea democrats wao go away politically." even former president obama said there is a reason wyoming and its 500,000 residents get two senators and california and its 33 million residents also get joe's two senators, saying the founders wanted to make sure the united states put a premium on the states. shannon? >> shannon: that was the idea. trace gallagher, thank you very much. as democrats are greedy constitution is under attack by president trump, they are also saying it's outdated, and they have these really progressive ideas to radically change it. let's debate. the fox news contributors doug schoen and karl rove, senior vp alexander wilkes. welcome to all of you. the president has waited with a couple of tweets.
8:06 pm
in the past, he said, going after the popular vote would be an easier race to run. tonight, this is what he saying in a couple of tweets. "campaigning for the popular vote is much easier and different than competing with electoral college. like training for the 100-yard dash versus a marathon. the brilliance of the electoral college that you must go too many states to end but the popular vote, you go to the large states. the cities would run the country, smaller states in the entire midwest would end up losing all power, and we can't let that happen. i used to like the idea of a popular vote but i realize electoral college is far better for the usa." karl? >> i think there is a muslim and the idea that our country is better served by having a mechanism that takes a close election and gives the victor a bump up, if you welcome if you take a look at elections of 2000 or 2008, or 1992, it helped bill clinton govern to be able to have the electoral college give him a substantial majority. allow him to go forward.
8:07 pm
we need to have things that draw us together, not things that tear us apart. the idea that we would go to abolish the electoral college -- first of all, it's never going to happen. two-thirds of both houses of congress avenue to approve, and three quarters of the states have to ratify it. states like nebraska and the dakotas and idaho, utah, wyoming, even a lot of states in a self mississippi and arkansas, they are not going to give up the rights to be considered just as important as others by having people come to to the ss and campaign. >> shannon: i want to read the tweet that comes -- "prominent democrats have endorsed packing the supreme court, changing the voting age to 16, which we will debate later, abolishing the electoral college, so weird how their answer to losing always seems to be, let's change the rules." doug, are they opening themselves to that kind of criticism by proposing those ideas? >> i think that things like the green new deal, medicare for
8:08 pm
all, jobs for all, abolishing any obligations under student loans are a lot more hot button. i think the electoral college is something that can and should be debated in a nonpolitical setting, as it was after 1968 by richard nixon and hubert humphrey. i don't think, though, it's mainstream for the party to change the voting age to 16. packing the supreme court is a bad idea. it was a bad idea when fdr considered it. it's a bad idea now. i think the democrats have a big problem of moving way left on economics and social issues. third trimester abortions being another one that you alluded to earlier. that, to me, is the problem. some of these wacky ideas that you read out are just not really in play but they sure won't help a party that needs to be in the center to end to end. >> shannon: alex, i feel like each day when i get up and we
8:09 pm
see what is bubbling from the 2020 contenders, all the places they are, there's a new test every day. if you don't sign onto it essentially, the rest of the pack is pulling to the left, so i'm not sure what's going to come next but it seems like one of those -- it happens at primaries, how do they self-correct this to the general, whomever ends up winning the nomination? >> i am not entirely sure how they are going to do this, considering that a freshman congresswoman was able to come onto the scene and basically get on the 2020 contenders to start agreeing with banning hamburgers. this is a party that is being pulled way to the left. it has been being pulled to the left ever since the 2016 elections because these yearly contenders, like elizabeth warren, they didn't want to have happen was what happened to hillary clinton in 2016, a challenge to her left. you started to see these litmus tests emerge on medicare for all, and now we are moving into even more extreme territories with electoral college, with the court packing, this is something
8:10 pm
that we have seen, on the court packing we've seen beto o'rourke be open to, kamala harris, kirsten gillibrand, all open to this idea. as you mention, these are really ideas that are in response to just losing. there is no guiding or limiting principle for democrats behind these ideas other than that these institutions no longer serve them. so i think they are being pulled all the way to the left and i'm not sure there is time to course correct. >> shannon: if we look broadly beyond the presidential race and all these house races that will happen, the senate races as well, karl, there's a lot of democrats on the hill who are uncomfortable because it was the swing districts, the moderate districts, they gave them back to the house, and now the only headlines that we are seeing are the most radical members of their freshman class. they are getting all the attention. >> yeah, they are. you are right. you mentioned earlier, how this would play out in the primary and affect the general election. remember, we will have an unusually long primary season. it's already started and it's going to go about 18 months until the democrats meet, from
8:11 pm
start to finish, when they finish, they will meet at their convention in milwaukee. then there will be just over four months between that convention on the general election. the impression that the american people developed during the primary season of the democratic party, with all the sort of far out socialist ideas and very left wing ideas, is going to be hard to erase in a matter of four and a half months between the democratic convention and the november 2020 general election. >> shannon: doug, new polling from cnn shows that a vast majority of people think the economy is in good shape. they feel good about how they are doing. is that, for now, an issue that is at the table for democrats and that is why they are focusing on his other outliers? >> it's not off the table. issues like income inequality and waged a nation remain strong. the president's numbers are underwater. there is a democratic narrative but there is a pro-growth
8:12 pm
centrist inclusive narrative, not redistribution, azimuth of the candidates are now emphasizing. >> shannon: please come back soon. great to have all of you. >> thanks for having us. >> shannon: beto gets backtracked on climate change and he's not going to like it. melania's get even more serious about embracing socialism. >> would you trade trump nicolas maduro? >> i think nicolas maduro was democratically elected. >> there is a nicolas maduro out here that is going to bring us to revolution, i will support that. >> shannon: plus, attorneys on the revelations that the fbi was packing some inner circle a whole lot earlier than we previously thought. a democrat from president obama's inner circle maybe get charged by mueller. find out who next. ♪ some things are out of your control. like bedhead. hmmmm. ♪ rub-a-dub ducky... and then...there's national car rental.

8:17 pm
>> shannon: we are getting new information about just how long the fbi was digging around in the president's inner circle. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is here with details on the probe into michael cohen. good evening. >> a shannon, these heavily redacted court records show the investigation into michael cohen began nearly a year before the fbi raided his new york business and dwellings in april of 2018. the special counsel requested and obtained multiple warrants or cohen's emails that cover correspondence during the presidential campaign. the filing runs into the hundreds of pages, and 19 are completely blacked out or redacted with the heading, "illegal campaign contribution scheme," underlying how the president's greatest legal exposure may be in the southern district of new york and on related to russia collusion. cohen pled guilty to lying to congress as well as multiple financial crimes. including campaign finance
8:18 pm
violations after two women were paid to remain silent about alleged affairs prior to the presidential election. president trump denies their allegations. the unsealed records show federal investigators also wanted historical and future location data for cohen's iphone. to confirm from where he sent and received emails. in april 2018, the fbi sought and obtained authority to use an electronic technique known as triggerfish. on fox, the former dressers official said the investigative strategy is not common. >> i think it is probably geolocation and knowing where this guy is, which could mean they are trying to corroborate him on an important point or trying to find out if he's lying to them but an important point. >> the april 2018 time frame appeared significant because it cohen testified that he was told by the u.s. attorney not to discussed his conversation after the fbi raided. shannon? >> shannon: catherine herridge, thank you very much. critics have called the special counsel russia investigation everything from a fishing expedition to a witch hunt.
8:19 pm
with a revelation today that the fbi was giving warrants into michael cohen as far back as mal vindicated or worried? national security attorney and rnc committee woman for california, harmeet dhillon, here to join us as our legal eagles. great to have you. >> good evening. >> shannon: i want to start with as quote that appears in "newsweek," a former federal prosecutor who worked on watergate on the investigation. "michael kohn's documents suggest a significant threat of donald trump's inner family being indicted. "he told "newsweek" of the reductions make it clear that the probe by the southern district is still continuing and that the prime target is likely president trump. asked if trump, members of his family, or business associates could wind up being indicted as a result, he said, absolutely. harmeet, how worried should they be tonight? >> i think what this whole episode shows is that clearly from the beginning of this process, that the president was
8:20 pm
targeted of not necessarily russian collusion. the risk is a patch of the payments are in fact campaign finance violations. i practice some campaign finance work and i have run for office and had to comply, the fact that michael cohen pled guilty to them is as a result of him being under under the gun and wanting to comply and please them. if john edwards does not >> shannon: we know they were digging around much earlier. bank fraud, all kinds of things they were looking back in 2017. here is what congressman mark meadows, one of the most outspoken conservatives on capitol hill said, "michael, and lied about seeking a pardon from president trump. he lied about wanting to work in president trump's administration, and both times, he lied under oath."
8:21 pm
does that make him and if effete general witness? he could be discredited? >> he could be discredited. i have no reason to believe that anything michael cohen says will be relied upon and any ultimate prosecution of anybody else in the president's inner circle up to and including the president himself. documents don't lie. that's been a critical part. you read these hundreds of pages that were released today from the justice department, it is -- they've got the emails, the icloud account, they've got the phone logs, they've got everything office phones when they rated it in april of 2018. they've got the recording devices. they don't need michael cohen's testimony for anything to go after anybody else unless they can corroborate that with someone else's testimony are the documentation. they have their receipts. that is why the president's inner circle should be scared. not anything michael cohen has said. >> shannon: they did not charge him anything related to russia collusion. i want to ask you, if you can weigh in on greg craig,
8:22 pm
white house counsel for president obama. "the new york times" is reporting that he may end up getting charged as a result of the mueller investigation because they are deciding whether or not he will be part of the more aggressive crackdown on illegal foreign lobbying. he had some ties to then ukrainian president who is being backed by russia, didn't necessarily disclose that according to the report from "the new york times," or that is the potential allegation against him. harmeet, would this change the investigation in any public perception if a key democrat ends up getting charged? >> that is the whole point of it. the reality, shannon, many guess on your show have said, these pharaoh violations , the lobbying violations, are technically not prosecuted. both sides should be prosecuted. gregory craig would not have been prosecuted if it not been to make the witch hunt against donald trump and his affiliates, paul manafort and others, look more balanced and legitimate.
8:23 pm
the specific facts here, the former white house counsel appears to have lied to his partners, that is what his former law firm itself reaching the deal with the doj, and conceal the fact that he was attempting to manipulate american public perception of some very shady and bad people abroad in the ukraine. he should go away for that. this is much broader. the same stories also showing a couple of other democrats, podesta and some others will be under investigation for the same violations. >> shannon: brad, charging democrats are floating the idea that they may be, an attempt to make the mueller investigation to look more balanced? >> it's draining the swamp, doj doing it, not the president. if you are a liberal couple, conservative, whatever, if you'e breaking the statute, you are concealing this information and preventing doj from properly implementing the statute, you should be prosecuted. if that means gregory craig gets in trouble, so be at.
8:24 pm
>> shannon: we all think the law should be fair and equal, regardless of party or any other ideology. thank you both. great to see you. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: is a attempt to lower the voting age to 16? >> it's really important to capture kids when they are in high school, when they are interested in all of this. >> shannon: plus, "the associated press" fact checks the democratic darling beto o'rourke. what they say he got really wrong about climate change. and congress home in alexandria ocasio-cortez looks for help from spongebob squarepants to help support the green new deal. ♪ what bad back? advil is... relief that's fast. strength that lasts. you'll ask... what pain? with advil liqui-gels.

8:29 pm
>> it warms another degree celsius, going forward, we are screwed. that is a term that scientists use. there are 12 years left to us to take bold, decisive action together. >> earlier today, the newest 202020 candidate doubled down on his 12 years are all planned. "the associated press" called his comments misinformed, citing scientists. the facts come according to the ap, "there is no scientific consensus. much less unanimity, that the planet only has 12 years to fix the problem." now think progress won by the democratic think tank center for american progress says is incorrect. think progress says o'rourke is correct and argues the ap has its facts wrong. one place where both organizations can agree, climate change is becoming a major issue in the 2020 presidential race. >> climate change is not a hoax!
8:30 pm
>> senator bernie sanders continues to push his anti-fracking stance, tweeting, "fracking pollutes water, degrade air quality, and worsens climate change." sanders is now second in most polls just beneath former vice president joe biden, who has yet to announce a run, meaning sanders' hard-line stance could become a reality. sanders joins a long list of 2020 candidates in favor of the green new deal. a nonbinding resolution that's taken center stage in this upcoming race. in a tweet earlier this morning, new york congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez pokes fun at those against her green new deal plan with a scene from spongebob squarepants. look closely, that glass enclosure is where one of the characters lives, closed off from the environment. the senate will vote next week on the green new deal. majority leader mitch mcconnell called for a vote to get senators on the record about how they are

8:32 pm
our countries. >> those kinds of remarks from the president of the united states is exactly what the brazilian president wanted from his first official trip to washington. becoming a nonnato ally would make it much easier for brazil to buy u.s. weapons and cooperate with the u.s. military. already cover the two self-proclaimed nationalist presidents are talking about hoo help bring democracy to socialist venezuela, and today, bolsonaro indicated he might allow u.s. troops to base out of brazil, which shares a border with venezuela, if the u.s. decides to take military action against the socialist nicolas maduro regime. >> translator: brazil will be ready and willing to fulfill his mission and take freedom and democracy to that country. >> all options are open. we may be doing that. we have not on the toughest of sanctions, as you know. we've done, i would say, write down the middle. we can go a lot tougher, if we need to do that. to speak of the tough talk and press conferences and on

ballot. >> shannon: so gianno, yes or no? >> no. democrats have become the looney tunes party of power. they are power-hungry. they know that the 16-year-olds who are led by popular culture, hollywood, beyonce, whoever they tell them to vote for, they will vote for, and that is the democratic party. the truth of the matter is, when we talk about the slogan, old enough to fight, old enough to vote, this was because the military and white eisenhower was the first rent introduces, or at least talk about it, this is when individuals could join the military, get drafted to 18, makes a lot of sense. now they are looking to lower it only for the reason they can gain more power, just like they have done for sanctuary cities, in some cases, local elections, allowing folks who may not be legal citizens to vote. that is how i see it, a ploy. >> shannon: richard, he says looney tunes. let me redo something from the "washington examiner" ."

"your brain isn't fully developmental age 25, almost ten years after pelosi wants a young person to start voting. some students don't take government glasses until their senior year of high school and we expect them to stop eating tide pods long after cast a ballot for president." >> i think you have to be clear i did an end both sides, which means there will be a lot of hurdles to get this change because it will take a constitutional amendment, two-thirds of the house and senate as well as three fourths of the states. beyond that, i think there is something to be said about what congressman ayanna pressley is saying. it had front of the thought of these movements, the pro-life movement, a majority of those kids out there are 16 and 17-year-olds. if you go to the enough is enough movement, the gun rights movement, a lot of folks out there are young people, same with black lives matter. on both sides of the aisle, young people really seem to be the folks moving the issues forward. sure they get the right to vote right away? no. this is a noble conversation and debate that is worth having. >> shannon: i want to read something that comes from a congressman, a republican from texas. he says, those who pay taxes anr

democracy. as a teen, i worked and paid taxes. this week, i voted for an amendment that would give young adults the right to vote. it failed by a wide margin. i support policies that encourage work and this could be part of the conversation." if you are paying taxes, why not? >> these are 16-year-olds. these are kids. we have lawmakers, mostly democrats, who are pushing to raise the smoking aged 21 because they are not adults yet and people can make their own decisions. i think this is outrageous. 16-year-olds, yeah, some of them have summer jobs, part-time jobs job, maybe some of them work full-time jobs but that does not make me comfortable with the idea that they are going to make a decision for a national election that affects all of us, like you had mentioned, they are just starting to learn the basics about the constitution and our government and how things work. richard brings up the fact that they are going to protest and that is because a lot of their instructors and their teachers are liberals and are given class credit for them to attend these events.
8:44 pm
>> stephanie, if you listen to the example, i used the march for life is the first example, a pro-life, very conservative march. it's led by young people. if you talk to the folks, the parkland students, will tell you clearly come our parents are telling us to come out here, we are coming out here because our lives are in danger. same thing if you talk to the folks at the march for life. we are here because we believe that pro-life is the best way to be. so these are people who have real issues, real thoughts, and i think to disregard those thoughts -- i'm not saying they should have the right to vote right away -- but we need to be clear i did realistic and say, they have thoughts, and pay taxes. >> they can't buy homes, get married, so all of these other -- >> they work and they have voices and the policies affect them. >> i'm not buying that for you to speak of the policies to affect them. >> shannon: for now, no 16-year-olds are voting. stick around, another very hot topic to talk about coming up. it involves, his life in 29 more stressful than ever before?

from venezuela who have family there, who fled to socialism, and a further horror stories, and i am wondering, why would anyone protest the united states of america slapping sanctions on venezuela? we know that there is some 50, 60 countries behind the u.s. on this movement, supporting the opposition leader juan guaido. i thought maybe these people just didn't like the idea of the u.s. intervention, just because i don't think the united states should have to deal with other countries problems. that is something that president trump talked about a lot, that we shouldn't have to meddle and other people -- and other problems. but the problem is, venezuela is a national security threat, declared by president obama in 2015. i don't remember these protests happening. i said, do they take issue with the fact that there is sanctions and the possibility of a military intervention? or are they sympathizers or maduro? when i ask this question, the simple question, would you trade
