baldwin, rachel maddow or don lemon. brian: you just have to pick one? steve: go about 50 names. ainsley: tell you what the democrats are saying this morning. first. steve: straight to a fox news alert. you haven't heard this yet. the pentagon has approved $1 billion to start building president trump's border wall. ainsley: comes amid reports more than 1,000 illegal immigrants were just released into the united states. brian: he got money from congress and then he asked money from the defense budget in order to finish the wall that the congress would not give him. garrett tenney is live in d.c. with the next step to secure our border. garrett, update us? >> good morning to y'all. no surprise here. democratic lawmakers are not happy about this. the pentagon notified congress late month it is transferring up to $1 billion to help fight -- to help in the fight against drugs entering our country. in a statement, the pentagon said these funds will be used to support dhs's request to build 57 miles of
18-foot high podesta fencing constructing and improving roads and installing lighting within the uma and el paso sectors of the border in support of the emergency declaration on the southern border of the united states. according to the fox affiliate in san diego more than 1,000 illegal immigrants were dropped off in the city saturday night because detention centers have run out of space. that situation is only expected to grow worse as more migrants continue crossing the border every day. however, 11 democratic senators blasted the pentagon's move as a violation of congressional appropriations saying in a letter to the defense secretary we have serious concerns that the department has allowed political interference and pet projects to come ahead of many near term critical issues facing our military. the 1 billion-dollar without congressional approval a dollar for dollar theft of other readiness needs from our armed forces.
today patrick shanahan is expected to testify before the house armed services committee and is he almost certainly to face a lot of questions about this. ainsley, steve, brian. steve: do you think? thank you very much. brian: 3.6 billion. a billion now. figure he is using his border patrol or the army corps of engineers using 1.3 to build out already. so, i mean, you have a lot of work going on. even if you had 100 billion. this is as much work as can you do. ainsley: the money comes from the department of homeland security counter drug moneys for this first step. that's just the first billion. there is also money they can use from the military construction funds. those folks that were just dropped off at the bus station, the reason is because of catch and release because these immigration detention centers are full capacity, eagle pass, del rio, the rio grand valley and can you expect more of this to happen over the next weekend. steve: look, he declared a national emergency at the southern border. either you believe it is or not. as we saw all those people now have been released
because they simply don't have enough room, we are going to keep you posted on that. in the meantime, of course yesterday this program, three hours, we talked about how there was no russia collusion after the fact we had heard that a million times. now the democrats are being, you know, facing the real possibility in addition to being wrong on that, that the republicans are going to go after them and obama administration officials as well, at least that's what the president seemed to indicate yeendfigure out yester. here is the president alongside bb netanyahu. >> there are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things, very bad things. i would say treasonous things against our country. and hopefullying that people that have done such harm to our country, we have gone through a period of really bad things happening. those people will certainly
be looked at. i have been looking at them for a long time. brian: meanwhile the president of the united states has got it say hey, how did this whole thing start? remember, george papadopoulos is coming on shortly. he is one of the people like michael flynn accused of lying and cut a deal with the fbi. he wants to tell his full story. we have not gotten mike flynn's true story and how he feels today because his life has been ruined today one of many. lindsey graham picked up the phone and talked to william barr and he said listen, when are you going to give the summary -- when are you going to give additional information about the report? he said i'm going to get it to you. it's not going to be a month. it's going to be weeks. i'm going to talk to bob mueller about what i can and can't release. what are you going to do about how this investigation was launched? ainsley: democrats are saying we want the full report by april 2nd. that's out deadline for the full report. lindsey graham went ton say when barr testifies he will start focusing on many of the things that you as americans are questioning now. president no collusion and
no obstruction? what about the other side like the president said. he said he wants to ask barr about the emails. the fisa warrant and the dossier. remember the meeting between loretta lynch and bill clinton? steve: oh, yeah. ainsley: he says he has a lot of questions for the democrats. listen to some of the questions. >> did they exonerate clinton because they had a political bias? did they ignore all the facts because if they indict her they know she can't beat trump and they wanted trump to lose? was the counterintelligence investigation a back door way of spying on trump? there is real no evidence of working with russia. it just uses excuse with the fisa warrant obtained unlawfully based on fraudulent documentation to surveil the campaign. those are the things that i think you want to know about and i want to know about. steve: yeah. apparently the trump campaign has been suggested to tv producers that use going forward basic journalistic standards when booking guests. if they have lawmakers on the air who have said we have evidence of collusion,
ask them about that. and it includes richard blumenthal, adam schiff, how are about to hear from, jerry nadler, eric swalwell, tom perez and former cia director john brennan. if they have evidence, let's see it and adam schiff, tripling down on that. >> accept the prosecutorial judgment of bob mueller is sound. i have said all along that we would accept whatever conclusions he reaches as a prosecutor. i have also said that there was a big difference between whether there is evidence of collusion and i think that evidence is in plain sight. steve: plain sight. ainsley: read some of the democrats' tweets you can tell they got together what are we going to stay in we have got to spin that. steve: it's in plain sight. ainsley: hand picked attorney general. hand picked attorney general is not sufficient. jeff merkley said barr was hand picked. he decide nod obstruction. shocker.
keep in mind thorough investigation, two years, millions of taxpayer dollars. rod rosenstein was a part of this as well. brian: there was a conference call 3:00 saturday. so they all got on the same page with this. ainsley: yeah. brian: i believe every attorney general is hand picked by the president so it shouldn't have been a surprise. rod rosenstein to have him there was brilliant because he has been loved by the left because he seems to be the one who launched this whole thing and promised to wear a wimplet meanwhile rush limbaugh says this is going to be tough now. how county democrats possibly say we are going to impeach this president? >> this is the absolute most severe political scandal that has happened in my lifetime and maybe in the nation's history. a dossier that was fake. it was made up. it was never corroborated. it was never validated. and it was used as one of the highest secret courts in this country to get warrants that were renewed four times
to spy on donald trump and related members of his campaign and his family. i don't know how more egregious a travesty of justice you can find than this. and then th the realization that everybody involved knew it. steve: here's the thing the democrats want the full mueller report released. release the fisa warrant. they don't want that released that reveals how this all started. you know you how fisa works. it's a secret court and everything is a secret. they won't release it when democrats say they want to release the whole thing they don't want that released. ainsley: rod rosenstein signed the fourth warrant in order to survey carter page. but here's the thing. william barr, they are all blaming william barr. this was a summary of the robert mueller report.
steve: preview. ainsley: 19 lawyers involved with. you know all the subpoenas and witnesses they talked to this is just a summary of what he wrote. this is not william barr's opinion. brian: two weeks ago, march 5th they told barr and rosenstein there is going to be no decision on obstruction because i can't figure out intent of anyone. it's too hard. when it comes to collusion, the verdict is in. we don't see it meanwhile, 1 minutes after the hour. jillian you have the other news? jillian: that's right. good morning. get you caught up on the other news we are following starting with a fox news alert right now. tensions flair along the gaza strip. take a look at this. you see that? that is a lot of violence erupting as israel and hamas launching dozens of rockets in second straight day of fighting. israel attacked the office of the head of hamas for retaliation of a rocket strike north of tel aviv that injured seven people. the violence erupting while
prime minister benjamin netanyahu was in washington. he ended his trip early. the trump administration could soon erase president obama's signature accomplishment. the justice department is siding with a district court ruling finding obamacare to be unconstitutional. the doj will now ask an appeals court to validate the affordable care act entirely. new enrollment in the healthcare program is down by more than 500,000 this year. big number there the pentagon is celebrating after successfully testing a new antimissile defense system. the u.s. military launched two missiles from california which then intercepted an unarmed missile. more than 4,000 miles away in the south pacific. and how about this? conner mcgregor could be happening up his gloves for good. the mma star abruptly announcing retirement overnight. i wish all my old colleagues
well going forward in competition. hours earlier mcgregor claimed he was negotiating with ufc to fight in july. not the first time he has retired though. he did it back in 2016 before coming back a few months later. a lot of people saying oh, he will be back. steve: a stunt. jillian: he has been in trouble lately. brian: i would look for him to give up brawling outside the octagon like he is alleged to have done. 13 minutes after the hour. steve: a new migrant caravan heading to the united states at this moment. the next guest patrols the border every day and says they need all the help they can get stat. ainsley: plus, michael avenatti says he will be fully exonerated but he is facing a long list of charges and a lot of years behind bars. the judge on the case coming up. ♪ come on and take a free ride ♪ come on and take a free ride ♪ come on and take a free ride ♪ come on and take a free ride

dodd hadodd has been phenomenal partner on the ground. today providing so much support placing concertino wire fragile to border security mission. pumping water out of areas where water has been flooding along the border wall, the border fence. and then also they have been building bridges and providing us in some areas some surveillance for situational awareness. dod has been great. their kil skill sets are imagine sent any support from dod is very much appreciated on the border. brian: you say that is really getting out of control. what respect? >> it is. this caravan situation it is concerning to us. there are two things we are dealing with now. we have organized caravans which started back in october of 2018. these caravans consistently keep us very tasked. both between the ports of entry and at the ports of entry.
the other situation is the family unit situation. that involves family and children. see, back in 2014, we had the crisis with unaccompanied alien children. and in 2016 it, changed to family units and children. and now today it is still continuing to increase. it has not stopped. for us it is a humanitarian crisis. and it's also a national security crisis. because the focus of our agents is no longer on border security mission. they are being so tasked their focus is shifting to providing support and aid to many of these families and children that come across our border. especially when many of them come here and are suffering from different illnesses and agents need to transport these people over to the hospital so then they are there tasked with the hospital. here recently we have had. brian: let me just ask you real quick. you have another caravan coming your way.
how are you going to handle that? >> for us it's a bit frustrating and overwhelming. already our facilities which are short-term processing centers. they are not long term detention. they are already fully tasked and at full capacity and overcapacity. we have sectors like huma, arizona. we have sectors in tucson, el paso, rbg fully tasked already. it's a bit overwhelming because now we see organized caravans continue to come and they are coming because they are continuing to take advantage of the opportunity that is coming across as a family unit they will get in anyway. brian: to identify stop you there. i think you made your point it is emergency at the border. democrats and republicans take note. gloria, thanks so much. meanwhile, straight ahead, the media went after president trump for years over russia. >> i think they are all going to end up together in prison. and maybe that's a good thing. >> donald trump now sits at
the threshold of impeachment. >> so will they apologize now that there is no collusion? joe concha says don't count on it he joins us next. cancer, epilepsy, mental health, hiv. patients with serious diseases are being targeted for cuts to their medicare drug coverage. new government restrictions would allow insurance companies to come between doctor and patient. and deny access to individualized therapies

net zero emissions in 10 years. steve, down to you. steve: we will be watching for that. thanks, ainsley. according to the media research center. tv networks spend three minutes every day for 771 days covering the mueller probe and during that time 92% of the stories were negative toward president trump. even now the media will not accept the results of the mueller probe in some cases because it does not fit into their agenda and years of bias against donald trump. >> this is evidence of willingness to commit collusion. >> so much involvement. so many connections with the kremlin. >> i think they are all going to end up together in prison and maybe that's a good thing. >> donald trump now sits at the threshold of impeachmen impeachment. >> he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time.
steve: here with reaction can you see right there media reporter for the hill and radio talk show host wor joe concha. joe, what day do you think these tv talking heads and, you know, blue checked journalists are going to apologize to donald trump for getting the story wrong? >> i can't give a day a year 3074. not very good at math. i'm pretty sure that's a long time from now. steve: they are not going to admit they got the story wrong? >> oh god no. because egos don't allow for that, right? when you have been pyes. forget reporting. as pyes as they have been over the last two years there is no way to put tooth paste back in the tube at this point. you say it does not fit their agenda. i agree with that i also think another 40% of it is it does not fit their business model because this has been very good for business in some circles. the clicks and ratings are
there. they are going to continue to hammer this mommy. all right. mueller, let's move on, let's pivot to something else, southern district of new york. or let's focus on was there obstruction or not obstruction? think will try to keep this alive as long as possible because that's all they have known for the past two years and that's all their audience has known they will continue to hammer it home because it's good for business, steve. steve: it's interesting you would say that i was watching a segment in this morning chris cuomo on cnn was battling with rudy giuliani. rudy said look, you guys owe us an apology. cuomo said no, not going to do it. he said you should apologize because cuomo said i didn't get anything wrong. rudy said your network got it wrong. he would not apologize. i think you are probably right on that. >> yeah. probably. one more point by the way. there was a monday report that came out. it was done by axios or at least it was published by axios. it was published by news whip. when we talk about how much this story has been covered. 530,000, more than 530,000
web articles have been published, focusing on russia, donald trump and mueller since may of 2017. steve: unbelievable. >> think about that for a second. that's more than 700 a day. people say we didn't cover it that much. oh, yeah, you did. steve: hard to see much coverage on the television aside from this channel talking about what happened. meanwhile, the "new york post," joe concha has mueller madness take off on the march madness bracket and they have all sorts of categories. they are trying to figure out who we watch on television and read in print got it the most wrong. so, in cable, and i'm not going to read all the names. who do you think got it more wrong? rachel maddow, anna navarro, don lemon or chris haze? >> i have to give you a tie on that one. i have to go to john brennan only because is he a former cia director. when he speaks people believes he has inside information or in other words there is more graph toss. he predicted there would be
more indictments handed down by mueller? does he apologize? no, of course not. rachel maddow again this was very good for business for her in the intercept not too long ago they did analysis of her coverage on a nightly basis. she has covered russia more than every other topic out there. and there are a lot to choose from in a trump administration combined. yeah, is she going to backtrack on that? no, of course not. she will continue to push this home because she wants to feed her audience what she thinks they want to hear. steve: this continues because it's broken into four. aside from cable then they have print. they have network. they have twitteratti. who is your ultimate person on television we see on television who got it the most wrong. >> who we see on television a lot got it the most wrong. i would have to go back to maddow again clearly. if you want to throw colbert in there, steve.
you say is he a comedian. a lot of people don't watch the news and watch colbert at night and that will be the news source the same it was with stuart and his program on a nightly basis. all he talked was mueller time. mueller time. can't wait for it to come out. last night had a very weak response as far as that's concerned. i'm sorry, trump, that you are still a bad president or something horrible. he will continue to sing the same song as well. finally on twitter has to go to bill kristol. mueller will find there was collusion and that trump knew about it and sought to cover it up and sought its investigation. can we never listen to bill kristol. i never seen anybody get more predictions wrong since jimmy the greek. steve: joe concha joining us live from new york city. thank you very much. >> that's all due respect to jimmy the greek by the way he was great. steve: meanwhile teenager in this country illegally and now charged with killing a teacher in a horrific car
crash. what a judge just ruled in this case coming up. plus, george papadopoulos was one of the first people charged in the mueller probe. now he wants to clear his name in public. he is here with the message for his critic coming up. ♪ ♪ last years' ad campaign was a success for choicehotels.com badda book. badda boom.

saying it 14 days. he could have gotten up to six months. >> how is it not collusion when george papadopoulos in contact with various people who are promising dirt on hillary clinton. >> this ought to be clear like this entire investigation gets started because papadopoulos runs his mouth -- brian: boy was that wrong. joining us now is george papadopoulos himself. brand new book out today deep state target how i got caught in the crosshairs in the plot to bring down president trump. george, what was it like seeing these commentators. this is a small sample talk but as a liar. >> oh my goodness. from day one i knew this entire thing was a hoax. unfortunately i just couldn't speak. you know, i basically had a gag order on me until i was sentenced and i was very fortunate that girlfriend and now wife slowly going on tv giving hints it's not what you think. she obviously couldn't tell the whole story because there was legalities involved. i think that she was starting to give a couple hints when she was going on
abc news, nbc and cnn. people started looking at my story and things weren't adding up. steve: something we know now according to the attorney general's sum rift mueller report there was no collusion. >> that's right. steve: when they were probing you, asking you questions about collusion, if there was no collusion, no actual crime, they have no evidence of collusion, and, yet, you got in trouble because you said something that was not right to the fbi. >> yeah, my story is in so much misinformation about actually what my real case was about. and just to really simplify it for the viewers. it was about a professor i met in london who the fbi told the world was a russian agent. this guy is no russian agent. brian: who is he? >> joseph mifsud is his name. i met him through intermediary represents the fbi in the u.k. i met him in rome which they hold various symposiums at.
i never examined him to be a russian agent. one day the person tells me that the russians have hillary clinton's emails out of the blue. >> who is that? >> joseph mifsud. brian: i have hillary clinton's emails. he tells me the russians have hillary clinton's emails. i don't believe him. this was not a credible person. basically what the fbi wanted me to do and what mueller was trying to, i guess, force me to admit even though it never happened who did i tell on the campaign about what this guy told me because if i had told somebody on the campaign, this entire. steve: collusion. it? >> would have been a collusion, conspiracy. it would have been based on western intelligence basically fabricating the entire thing and that's why the case is insane. ainsley: when you were interviewed by special counsel and how long did you have to testify? how many hours? >> probably about 20 hours of just getting my head beat in daily. ainsley: you think they were trying to make you sing and say something that wasn't true? >> that was my impression. i mean, at that time i'm being arrested. i'm taken off an airplane. i am violently arrested and thrown into a cell with two
inmates. i don't know what's going on. i write it in the book. people are talking about chicken wings on wednesdays in jail how i'm going to be in there for months before i get a lawyer. then all of a sudden i have two lawyers who really don't buy into my story because, i guess they thought this is a young guy. he got caught up. let's just plead. so, as i'm talking to mueller's people and they are trying to get me to say something that i know is not true, i just couldn't. i had to stick to the facts, the truth. ainsley: you were treated beautifully in prison you say by the guards and other prisoners because you didn't rat out the president. >> yeah. basically as soon as i get into the beautiful city of oxford, wisconsin. the people were great there the guards basically tell me i'm taking off my prison hat right now and talking to you as a u.s. citizen. what did you was the right thing. we understand that this was a fabrication. it was a set up against you and you did the right thing fighting back while you came in to here and we applaud you for that. brian: just to be clear.
they told you russian agent. giving you information you go to a bar and meet ambassador downer. you have a casual conversation. what happened with ambassador downer, who had donated money to the clinton foundation, if you are following this. he is talking to you. is he trying to get information out of you? >> yeah. just to put some context about alexander downer. so i was one of four witnesses that was invited to testify in front of the oversight committee last year in front of mark meadows and john radcliff. the other three were jim comey, sally yates and loretta lynch. people were scamping their heads why would george papadopoulos be among those four names among fisa abuse. during my conversation and testimony in front of that committee, the name alexander downer came up a lot. he came up within the context of this guy was probably spying on me. and he wasn't there acting like a friendly dip looking to pass along pass along sensitive info but he was there to basically sabotage
me and the campaign. and just to be clear, i never remember talking about dirt with this person. he is actually contradicted himself numerous times. brian: they say you got drunk and you started telling him how hillary clinton's emails and all this story. >> yeah. i mean that's a complete lie. he has even come out and said we had one drink each. that's the truth. now, something people don't know and i have never it shared it with anyone except right now. i actually reported alexander downer to both the fbi and bob mueller because of his very bizarre, strange behavior during my meeting with him where he was pulling his phone out. he was recording me. it was very bizarre. steve: you did the right thing. ultimately though you were convicted and you served your time. you are out and you have a brand new book it drops today. deep state target how i got caught in the crosshairs of a plot to bring down president trump. do you want to know the whole story read all about it george papadopoulos. >> thank you so much. brian: if you want to know someone was putting together a broad scandal you start with your story and work

stormy daniels against president trump out on $300,000 bond in two separate federal cases. michael avenatti accused of trying to extort millions from nike, bank and wire fraud and he could face jail of 100 years. ainsley: here to weigh in on this is fox news judicial analyst host of liberty file on fox nation judge andrew napolitano. what happened here? >> this sort of came out of the blue. the events in this case all took place or the principle events in the past four or five days. steve: the nike case? >> the nike case where the government alleges and it has tape recordings to substantiate most of its allegations, that michael avenatti and another celebrity lawyer whom some of us know geragos. mark geragos represented themselves as having a client who was aware of a major fraud that nike was involved in. paying people to use their sneakers and get them into certain schools. and if they didn't pay these lawyers a lot of money,
meaning pay their clients a lot of money, the so-called client remain silent. they were going to hold a press conference and destroy nike. the language that with is used in the efforts to get this money out of nike is far more the language of extortionists than it is of lawyers trying to settle a case. brian: they called that a shakedown with suits. just because is he wearing a suit it's a classic shakedown. judge: rang wage very rough and aggressive. i can't repeat it here. not the language you would use in a case like this. if you had a client who was really aggrieved you would file a complaint, share it with the lawyers you were about to sue. you wouldn't show up at the office and demand a million for your client 20 million for you and by the way hire me so i can work for you. this is preposterous. steve: what he was suggesting or putting out there was look, if i come out against you, your stock is going to tank. and because he is so frequently on television he
says essentially he has, you know, a great celebrity presence. in fact, when you look at the number of times he appeared on cable news. >> how many times is it. steve: i'm glad you asked between march and may of 2018 he appeared 147 times. 74 times on cnn. and 57 times on msnbc. i do not believe he appeared on the fox news channel. brian: tucker carlson he did. >> the fbi says if we don't arrest him immediately, he might hold this press conference and nike stock might go down. i think the stock would have come back up but that's just my estimation. brian: nike would be in the same trouble adidas is. he got hit on the other coast at the same time because of not paying taxes. correct? >> well, this is obviously and the prosecutors can do this and they do this all the time. this is obviously coordinated. a tax fraud case in los angeles and a bank fraud case in mississippi, all these things came out at the
same day. it appears as though the bail that he posted yesterday afternoon in new york was for both the new york and los angeles case. it's not clear what happened in the mississippi case. geragos factor is interesting. his name doesn't appear anywhere. the complaint against avenatti says and other con spirit tores known and unknown. he hasn't been formally charged or arrested. many of us who know mark know him to be a first rate lawyer. i don't know what happened here. ainsley: avenatti faces 100 years behind bars and could get disbarred. >> disbarred the least of his concerns he couldn't get disbarred until after a conviction or guilty plea. steve: after making bond he said i want to thank all my supporters for kind words and support. it means a lot to me. i'm anxious for people to see what really happened. we never attempted to extort nike and when the evidence is disclosed, the public
will learn the truth about nike's crime and coverup. >> taping everything he said. and the exsempts he put in the complaint. brian: talk about what a despicable character he is keeping a 4-million-dollar personal injury settlement payout from a pai paraplegic man with mental health issues. stormy daniels says he hasn't been honest with her. >> how do you defend against that. ainsley: and he wanted to run for president. steve: one of our friends is returning to the curvey couch. >> one thing we are missing elizabeth hasselbeck is here. steve: elizabeth hesitate sell beck is back here. she has a brand new book. you will see her in 30 minutes. ainsley: plus liberal celebrities having a meltdown after the mueller report finds no collusion. joey jones is here with a message for those celebrities coming up next. ♪ ♪

alike? >> well, i think it's self-effort in the fact that we're now in a place where yoall the policy and legislation passed by president trump has made this country a better place now has a bedrock or foundation that's legitimate. not that it ever wasn't. that's what was at stake. it wasn't the idea that russians might mettle in our elections which has been forgotten now because now it's on to obstruction of justice or whatever they can grasp at for a straw. the idea that all the policy, the legislation, the place that this country is today and the direction it's headed, this is an attack on everything president trump and his administration has accomplished. now it has a bedrock that's fully legitimate. can't be challenged. sure, when the full report comes out there will be enough in there for each side to say what they have been saying is somewhat true. the truth is there is no indictment. there is no risk of president trump being delegitimized in some kind of back door marion and we can move forward with some of these policies that allow people like my parents that are on social security disability to go out and earn a few dollars.

netanyahu, who, by the way, brought the president a case of wine. he said i any you are not a big wine drinker but i know you could probably share this with your staff to celebrate the fact that you were vindicated by the robert mueller investigation. nonetheless, the president has made it very clear now that it has been established there was no collusion, let's figure out who dreamed up this whole investigation to start with. here's where he used treasonous. >> there are a lot of people out there that have done some very, very evil things. some very bad things. i would say treasonous things against our country. and hopefully that people that have done such harm to our period we have gone through a period of really bad things happening. i have been looking at them for a long time. brian: now you know why the president of the united states was so angry at john
brennan in particular when we talk about people being angry. it's one thing for someone sitting on a couch or chair or desk and say this is what i think happened and what shy sources are telling me. when you have the former cia director, national security advisor. and all these years in surveillance and in keeping top secret, government top secrets and you sit there and you tell network after network, anchor after anchor, there is something going on here. this president has been compromised over and over again. that's why the president got up and said can we pull this guy's security clearance? what is he even saying? john brennan doubled down and made personal. nobody looks worse, i don't believe than john brennan right now. remember when he said this. >> what makes you believe that he has more indictments? >> because he hasn't addressed the issues related to criminal conspiracy as well as any individuals. >> criminal conspiracy involving the russians? >> yes. i use the term this is nothing short of treasonous. because it is the betrayal of the nation. is he giving aid and comfort
to the enemy. ainsley: he predicted more indictments and yesterday he admits he got it wrong. listen. >> well i don't know if i received bad information. i think i suspected that there was more than there actually was. and i am relieved that it's been determined that there was not a criminal conspiracy with the russian government over our election. i think that is good news for the country. i'm not all that surprised that the high bar of criminal conspiracy was not met. i am surprised that that second part obstruction of justice, getting to the full mueller report is the best way to get some of these, if not all of these questions answered. steve: he may have relied on bad information. now, the president, we need to point out. the president did not name names. but we had rudy on yesterday who he said look, there were people in the previous administration and he went, you know, we have had people on this program who, mike huckabee yesterday as well. named people right up to the
west wing in suggesting that they somehow had their fingerprints on the whole hullabaloo that led to the mueller madness. let's see where this goes from here. it will be interesting to see what mr. huber, who is looking into the department of justice and the fbi is able to come up with. along with the inspector general, mr. horowitz. brian: i have given up on hoover. steve: i wouldn't. >> where is he? steve: like the mullen case no leakage which is a good thing. that way he can connect all the dots, figure out what happened. he has the power of subpoena and all sorts of things going for him. if anybody is going to get to the bottom of it. it's going to be people inside the doj and not congress. >> i will say this about john brennan. if anyone wants to understand about the international aspect of this investigation, of carter page and papadopoulos as we tried to unwind, which is unwound in his book an hour ago, if somebody had to be behind it, international context, might it be the former cia director and how is it that he got this bad
information? and if you are going to unwind, this and if you are chairman of the judiciary committee and you are lindsey graham. maybe you start bringing some of these guys in and saying who launched this? what do you know about ambassador downer? what do you know about christopher steele? what do you guys know about. steve: fisa warrant which we cannot reveal. ainsley: lindsey graham says he is going to do that asking questions about fisa warrant and meeting with loretta lynch bill clinton. so much time nearly two years focusing on this president and came up with the fact that there was no collusion. a new report came out that showed the network coverage of russia probe. look at this 2284 minutes on abc, cbs, and nbc on their daily coverage. the average was 3 minutes for 791 days. and 92% of it was negative coverage of president trump. steve: right. this was between january 20th, 2017 when the president became president and march 21st of 2019. the president has in the
last five minutes tweeted this out. the mainstream media under fire and being scorned all over the world is being corrupt and fake. for two years they pushed the russia collusion delusion when they always knew there was no collusion. they truly are the enemy of the people and the real opposition party. brian: i would add this. this is what is unquantifiable. would the president have been a better president for the last two and a half years? i don't think there is any question. you can't get your hands around that it's not tangible. when john dowd was on radio yesterday he said he got call from the president. john dowd was his original attorney along with ty cobb. he says do you know how many times they would say, donald, talking to world leaders, are you even going to be here? are you going to be here to execute this? how do we know, do you have the power at home to pull this off. steve: shows how effective when the mainstream media pushes the collusion thing that happens. brian: the country has been
hurt by. this. ainsley: people buy into it. steve: absolutely. ainsley: rush limbaugh said this is the biggest scandal for our country. brit hume said this is the worst debacle of his lifetime. listen. >> been going on quite a long time and this endless speculation about it, indeed the accusations about it that came out of many mouths on cable television and in the public prints, the list of people who got it wrong is really quite extensive. and, you know, to include many news organizations that got the prospect of donald trump being elected in the first place badly wrong and seemed not to learn very much from that. one hopes and expects, perhaps, that after this debacle and that's exactly what it is in the worst journalistic debacle of my lifetime, that there will be some serious soul-searching. steve: it's one thing when reporters ask questions. that's the job of a reporter is to ask questions. when you flatly say there is collusion or trump family members are going to wind up going to jail, you know, you cross a line.
and to brit's point, there was a lot of that going on. the campaign, the trump campaign did send out to tv producers at the networks yesterday some guidelines and said hey, going forward given the fact you gout this so wrong how about using basic journalistic standards when booking guests. when you have somebody on who has been talking about evidence of collusion. ask them to produce the evidence. and they list a number of people, including lawmakers like richard blumenthal who talked about it extensively, adam schiff obviously. jerry nadler, eric swalwell, tom perez, former cia director john brennan as well who probably would say yeah, that was then but i think i got some bad information. brian: this is going to happen in the next couple of weeks. in few weeks you will get the rest of the report. 675 pages they estimate about 100 pages plus will be released. they will talk about the trump tower and they will talk about roger stone and they will talk about. ainsley: obstruction. not doing enough about
obstruction. brian: he studied this for two years. there was no conspiracy. no collusion. these were isolated incidents that didn't coincide with the trump campaign. steve: no evidence. >> no evidence. it didn't go through. and, in fact, it was repelled. so, were they going to go out and go oh my goodness, papadopoulos and carter page and look into don jr.'s meeting at trump tower. everyone should stop hyper ventilating. looked into it and there was no there there. that's the point. if you don't think that barr's summary is accurate. they are great friends u they are coordinated. if there was something inaccurate about barr's four-page summary. robert mueller would have spoken out. ainsley: correct. brian: like he had to speak out before when they made up that story about trump telling michael cohen a lie. ainsley: william barr wrote a summary of what's in the report. it's not his opinion. it's what mueller wrote. steve: they have to switch gears and talk about things that matter to people rather than mueller madness.
brian: i don't think they are though. steve: if they're smart and want to win, i think that's what they do. all right, it's 7:11 in new york city. jillian has some news. jillian: let's start off with this story two. men arrested and charged with the murder of an off-duty chicago police officer. authorities now reveal officer john rivera was likely shot because he was hispanic. they say the shooter targeted the first hispanic person he saw after an earlier argument. rivera and three others were ambushed in a parked car just hours after his shift ended. the 23-year-old died a hero, shielding his girlfriend from bullets. president trump could get a major win today in the fight for his border wall. the house is not expected to override the president's first ever veto which will let his emergency declaration stand. the move will allow the president to shift $3.6 billion from military construction projects to help pay for the wall. that's in addition to the $1 billion the pentagon just approved for wall construction. education secretary betsy devos is investigating the

committee. we have seen in the past. we know anti-semitism begins with words and ends with things far worse than that and we all have an obligation to stand up against it to call it evil. and the democrats today aren't doing that they are cowering. they are enabling the anti-semitism in their party. and, frankly, it's dangerous for the nation and they ought to stop it. ainsley: how is that going to effect them at the polls in 2020. the majority of jewish people in america seem to vote democratically. so, how is that going to effect them? >> well, this shouldn't even be a partisan issue, ainsley. i mean, when you look at the obligation that all elected officials have in this nation, the obligation that we all have to do all of our part to ensure that we never, again, see what's happened in the past, particularly now when you have got a rise in anti-semitism globally, this is absolutely, you know, a situation where the radical left of the democratic party has seized control and the democratic leaders in the house of representatives are enabling it by standing silently by.
steve: well, steny hoyer spoke out against her comments. how did that end? >> well, you know, i think that he is making an effort, but it's one thing to give a speech at aipac. it's another thing he is now being attacked by the left. i think he has made somewhat of an effort now to say wait a minute, i wasn't condemning her specifically. it's not a profile in courage. it shouldn't be this complicated. it shouldn't be this hard. put a resolution on the floor, condemn her words and take her off the house foreign affairs committee. they have the power to being a. they have the power to show the world that we won't stand for anti-semitism. they are refusing to do it because they are catering to the far left of their party to this radical anti-israel faction. ainsley: all right. thank you so much for being with us. good to see you this morning. >> good to be with you. thanks, you guys. steve: what do you think about that? email us at email@example.com and also on facebook. meanwhile, democrats not giving up on the collusion narrative despite the end of the mueller probe. >> whatever kind of, you know, collusion that didn't lead to a criminal
indictment doesn't mean that it didn't happen. >> so we know there was an intent there to receive the help from the russians. steve: that was yesterday. when will enough be enough? we will talk to former dnc chair donna brazile coming up next. 300 miles an hour, that's where i feel normal. having an annuity tells me my retirement is protected. learn more at retire your risk dot org. whatever your dog serestbrings home to you,. it shouldn't be fleas and ticks. seresto gives your dog 8 continuous months of flea and tick protection in an easy-to-use, non-greasy collar. 8-month. seresto, seresto, seresto.

steve: well, and that was yesterday. joining us right now with reaction is fox news contributor and former dnc interim chair donna brazile. a lot of people we have seen on television how there is a possibility of collusion said, you know, let's just wait for the mueller report. we trust robert mueller. now he has come out and said there is no evidence of any collusion. if the democrats continue with this collusion thing, i don't think that helps with the voter. >> well, first of all, good morning. steve: good morning. ainsley: good morning. >> it's such a great honor to be with all of you. i cannot wait to sit on that couch. you know when i sit there i'm going to go you know what? i'm going to relax and really have a great day. i have to tell you do you know what the democrats want? they want the same thing that we saw back in 1998. you know, because i am donna brazile and i like to read, this is the report from the ken starr report from 1998 three volumes. i read it this was a very
important moment in our country's history back then. and i think we need to go beyond the four pages. i want the full report myself. because i became chair of the democratic party second time in my life because of the hacking. what democrats are asking for like most americans. they want to sees a much of the report as possible. we know parts of it will be. brian: we all do. >> parts of it will be redacted. we know grand jury testimony may not be public. but, we are adults. we need to see the report. and i think once the report is out, all of the report, then i think the american people will get a better understanding of what happened and hopefully we can stop thinking about who is right and who is wrong and figure out how do we protect our country. brian: donna, would you also agree that they were wrong? the summary says there is no collusion and the summary was put together by bill -- by william barr knowing one of his best friends is bob mueller. so if mueller says anything
was inaccurate about the summary would have brought it out. you can get details from this report. but i understand correctly from ken starr's conversation with us one of the reasons there is a special counsel with these rules it goes to the attorney general because all the salacious details that came out on bill clinton forever sullied and made everybody change the rules. not everybody wants to go back to the rules that both sides agree to get rid of last time. >> no. i'm saying, look, i recognize that individuals who might have been witnesses, might have seen something and if it was before the grand jury. you can redact that these volumes are full of redactions. these volumes are full of -- but it is also full of details and information, what i saw here and, look, i'm not looking at this through any eyes but the eyes that i saw and witnessed as someone who was the chair of the party. it says the investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian
government. in its election interference activities. i want to know -- this is me, okay? i'm a democrat. but i'm also an american. i want to know when the russians came to the trump campaign and they tried to give them information, did they -- did they tell the fbi? did they call the police and say hey, we have got these guys from russia trying to give us stuff that we don't need or we don't want? i mean, look, let us see the report. and i think we will all get back on the same page when it comes to protecting our country. ainsley: i think everyone agrees they want to see the report. even the president said that back to receive' steve's questi. no collusion. democrats are continuing to vow investigation. >> the democrats have a constitutional responsibility. remember we have oversight responsibility of the executive branch. ainsley: so you agree with that? >> no. you are asking me two questions. in terms of the democrats' constitutional responsibility it's the same
constitutional responsibilities that the republicans had when they were in charge of the house of representatives. mr. graham, who is in charge of the senate judiciary committee, he says he is going to open an investigation. i don't understand why when one side decides to open an investigation we get upset but the other side. brian: going on a different area of it, donna. they are not going over this area of it. they will say how did this come t being that the whole premise was blown up? that's what he is focusing on. >> do you know what i want democrats and republicans to do? i want them to make sure that this never happens to our country again so the next election which is in 587 days the president who is running for re-election, the democrats who are trying to get his job, i hope that we don't go through this again. brian: exactly. >> can we all agree on that? steve: we don't want that again. it was a mess. welcome to the fox family. >> by the way i'm going back home and putting this in my basement and 20 years from now i will just pull it out again.

read that. i will be very honest. i read it and i immediately started praying. how i'm going to handle this in my old self-would be another split screen moment. but now i really feel like by god's grace i just started praying and i pray now the holy spirit gives me the words to articulate. this i think it can be addressed as both truth and grace and i feel like the truth is what she said if you took her words, and you replaced rosie for ronald there would be objection occasioobjectoccasion in the wo. whether it's right or wrong objectifying a woman in the workplace it's wrong. one thing truthfully i would address as a friend and be honest about. casting a stereotype on female athletes in what she said. brian: she had a crush on you because you were a division one softball player. >> and all female athletes are a little bit gay. i tried to call her yesterday. her name is old the one on
my phone. so i would say this directly to her and i would say that's an unfair stereotype and it seems selfish in a way. and i think it's untrue. i think the truth of that is that -- but i can't handle that with the grace of god because i need grace and his forgiveness. rosie o'donnell, i think it was disturbing to read those things and offensive to me but i forgive her, i totally forgive you rosie. i hope we can be at peace hold our beliefs in one hand and hold each other's hands in the other and still have a relationship that's at peace. more than that, just like i would pray for my friends, i hope she has the peace of god. rosie o'donnell is still seen and known and loved by god. i hope that she feels that and that she can find ultimately the peace. even more than i want to be at peace with her. i hope she finds that peace because god wants that for her, too. steve: you talk about your journey and your relationship with god in a brand new book. it comes out today, point of view, a fresh look at work, faith, and freedom.

schiff is saying there is collusion, still collusion, does he know better than the 19 lawyers, 40 fbi agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants? does he not believe information at that came from 28 subpoenas, 500 search warrants? they obtained 230 orders for commune records. 50 orders to tap phones. they interviewed 500 witnesses. robert mueller was head of the fbi for some years, more than 10 years, that was his report. two years a lot of millions of dollars. steve: think about it, a fbi investigation was launched in the presidential campaign running for president. that has never happened to our imagine in american history. ainsley: hopefully will never happen again. steve: the whole question is, why was it? looks like, this is a line out of the "wall street journal" yesterday, it looks like the biggest dirty trick in political history. then you have to the where do we go from here?

listen. >> from day one i knew this entire thing was a hoax. unfortunately i just couldn't speak. i basically had a bag order on me until i was sentenced. what people don't know, i never shared with anyone except right now, i reported alexander downer to both the fbi and bob mueller because of his very bizarre, strange, behavior during my meeting with him, where he was pulling his phone out. he was recording me. it was very bizarre. steve: the thing to remember about this, we first heard about george papdopoulus in the pages of "the new york times," oh, look what happened. this is what prompted the investigation and fisa and stuff like that. there have been people who looked at this, the whole scenario what happened, realized that happened on this day? that is not true then. things were happening way before it. that was part of the narrative that came out from "the new york times" to try to explain how this all got started but the more you peel away the
layers of the onion the more you realize it started before george papdopoulus. ainsley: he said the special counsel interviewed him more than 20 hours. he felt like they were trying to get him to sing, say things, coerce him into saying things that he believed weren't true. he refused to do that. he goes to prison. because he didn't do that. he wasn't a rat, they treated him beautifully. the guards loved president trump in jail. they treated him well. he had chicken wings on wednesday. only got to experience that for one time because he was in jail for 11 days. his wife stood by him the whole time. brian: stefan halper linked to the probe invites him oversees this guy joseph mifsid linked to hillary clinton gives him information about hillary clinton emails. then downer said, do you know about hillary clinton's e-mails? i heard something. someone told me bit. he gets questioned off a plane
by the fbi. what do you know about hillary clinton e-mails? turns out all three of the people were linked. like a bad episode of james bond. they give him information. they bait him to give the information back. they nail him by giving up unsolicited information. steve: that plays into "the new york times" narrative that came out. look, here is this low-level guy. he was colluding with the russians. ah-ha! now as we know -- ainsley: he was charged with lying to the fbi. i didn't lie to the fbi. i just didn't remember the timeline. brian: that's it. ainsley: jillian has headlines for us. jillian: lots to talk about. let's begin with this an update on story we're following. simulators recreating the doomed lion air flight gaves pilots less than 40 seconds to correct the problem. they landed safely in the test when faced with safety issues with boeing 737 max jets. a similar problem is believed to be behind the deadly ethiopian

brian: president trump responding to how many on the left pushed the collusion narrative in order to delegitimatize his election win for presidency. our next guest says with the end of the mueller probe comes to an end of democrat as excuses. he wrote an op-ed. top excuse for hillary's 2016 titanic loss. trump won fair and square. you report, deroy murdoch, the stats reek. president had 132 rallies. she had 63. she had average of 1700. the president had over 17,000. this was before even gets into the oval office. >> they started investigating him on the whole russian hoax in july 2016 this is the left excuse why blessed hillary didn't win the white house. it wasn't because she was bad candidate. this gas stolen by trump and putin. he out worked her, out foxed
her, won it fair and square. brian: as you said, people doing the legal team, 14 were democrats, 12 are democratic donors. two maxed out on hillary clinton. one went to the loss party which he thought was going to be a victory party, still there was no collusion. >> this conclusion were not right-wing lawyers that worked for project veritas what have you. these are left-wing lawyers, partisan democrats. the person who represented justin cooper. he is the guy who took hillary clinton's mobile devices and destroyed them with hammer. they were member of team mueller. they were hardcore democrats. they came to this conclusion. brian: what could have been had the probe not happened? >> i think if president trump didn't have the giant monkey on his back last two years, we could have gotten obamacare repealed. gotten a bigger, tax cut. brian: why do you think so.
>> wouldn't have republicans saying see how this goes. let's be cautious. he wouldn't have relentless headwind in his face. he would have a deal with china and north korea. leaders saying why would i do a deal with somebody that may not thereby in six months. this guy is fully elected. he is not going anywhere. let's do business with him. this whole probe, whole hoax needlessly weakened hip. brian: if you are a democrat you have to look why she lost, stop saying donald trump cheated to win. >> they need to look themselves in the eyes and look the way she handled that campaign. issues which she ran. barely made it to michigan. was never able to find wisconsin, on a map of the united states america. that is why she lost. brian: she was out-worked. that is all in your column, deroy murdoch. >> thank you. brian: liberty university pulled off a march madness upset but media is crying foul. they are hoping they lose.
