i love how she does the hair. there is a woman who says she wasn't drinking and didn't realize how bad it wasn't what she saw the video. >> looking back at that i realized that was. >> the kids love that one. shannon bream and the fox news at night team, take it from here. have you ever thrown and ask? shannon: know, i've done other dangerous things that i've never almost chopped off my own head. >> that makes me scared. shannon: we begin with the fox news alert. another top official resigning tonight, we will talk to chri k chris:kobach who is in the running to be the next attorney general. and a redacted version of mueller's report.
12:01 am
delivering the bombshell. is investigating the origin of the counterintelligence probe into the trump campaign in 2016. obama administration official get caught up in the investigation. both candidates the clear victory, we take you live to tel aviv where the only jewish presidential contender has harsh words for benjamin and yahoo. we begin with kristin fisher with the latest from the white house as the president pivots to a tougher immigration strategy. >> reporter: we have four major shakeup that the department of homeland security and less then away, acting deputy secretary claire grady, both republicans and democrats, so many vacancies dealing with crisis at the border and democrats saying the purge is calculated. >> people are being fired because they tell the president he can't break the law when he
12:02 am
wants to do something. >> reporter: the white house is changes are being made because dhs leadership was unable to move the bureaucracy bound by obama era policy, donald trump is shooting down all accusations of a parody. >> i never said i'm cleaning house. i don't know who came up with get expression. >> reporter: the president said he's not looking to restart the policy of separating families at the border but he did defend the practice as effective. >> once you don't have it you see many more people coming, like it is a picnic, let's go to disneyland. president obama separated children. they had child separation. i was the one who changed it. >> reporter: there were instances of any obama administration but they did not have a policy of separating families at the border. that is unique to the trump administration and today on capitol hill atop health and human services official urged
12:03 am
congress to act and limit the government's authority to separate migrant children from their families. >> the conditions under which it is permissible to remove the child from their parents, i submit it should only be for the safety of the child or if the parent ceases criminal charges. >> at the same hearing the border patrol chief details how dire the situation has become in his sector and he says the vast majority of people being apprehended by families. >> much media attention has focused on caravans from central america but the fact is our jb is receiving caravan equipment numbers of migrants every 7 days. >> reporter: as for who will be the next homeland security secretary, there's a lot of speculation chris kobach, former secretary of state in kansas may be under consideration but would he be able to get confirmed? pat roberts said he doesn't think so. shannon: we will talk to him so
12:04 am
thank you very much. the president's overhaul of his immigration team continue so let's turn to that man is in running to be dhs secretary. chris kobach and mark morgan, welcome to you both, gentlemen. i will start with you because of speculation about the possibility you would be up for this position and a lot of attention you are getting for comments he made last night talking about putting people into processing camps or areas while they're waiting to have their status determined. whatever you want to tell us on both those fronts, let's hear it. >> my point that i made last night is one of the problems we have is the system is so overloaded in terms of detention s, we have to think creatively
12:05 am
and make additional space because if we don't and all these people are claiming asylum they simply make the claim and disappear into the fabric of the united states never to be seen again. my point was we should have processing centers at us military bases a the facilities where we bring in the thousands upon thousands of trailer homes fema has come you go on the internet you can buy them at a bargain price, let's use them to solve this crisis and key people in comfortable living conditions instead of turning. never to be seen again, the process for asylum i would think most people claiming asylum if it is a true thing would want it to be processed quickly, get it done and if they fail in their attempt to gain asylum puts them on a passenger plane immediately and fly them back home and we will get back to their home country and wait a minute, not so easy to disappear into america by making a bogus claim of asylum which according to 90% of them are not actually. shannon: do you want the dhs job? would you take it?
12:06 am
>> that is the president's call. it would be an honor to serve him. i served in the transition team. of the president decides that is the way he wants to go i would be honored to help them. shannon: i want to get to a couple things and have you separate fact from fiction because he served under the previous administration. a democrat firmly lays the blame at the president for family separation. >> the family separation policy was implement it by secretary nielsen putting families and children into cages, that is under her watch too. >> this is what the president said about those policies in the oval office. >> those pages that were shown were very inappropriate. they were built by president
12:07 am
obama's administration, not by trump. president obama had child separation. the press knows it, you know it, we all know it. shannon: you with the border patrol chief, what can you tell us about the statements? >> neither president had a family separation policy. under president obama were family separated? yes. if you couldn't determine who the parent actually was you would separate them. if they were convicted criminal or had a warrant for a serious crime they were separated, we do that under obama and trump. donald trump went further and it wasn't a family separation policy the rule of law policy, they are applying consequences to those individuals illegally entering the country. shannon: let me ask about the conditions these kids were held under the previous administration where they different? were they similar? >> the president was right, the cages, i don't like the terminology, the border patrol
12:08 am
should be applauded for what they did. there facilities were crowded, they were unsafe and unhealthy so they quickly created these new facilities and they were safe conditions. the reason they were chain-link fences was to see through, from babies to 17-year-old kids along with parents, it was for their health and safety the way they were decided they have improved over the years. shannon: the administration of the present keep saying they are not going back to family separation policy, plenty of reports but that is the plan. what do you make of that? >> i take the president at his word. we do not need to separate families, nor should we. if we publish the floor as settlement, can be finally published any day now that will define the terms we can keep the family together so if one member
12:09 am
of the family or the whole family is coming together at the same time in a terror than keep them together while processing there asylum claim, no reason we should have to if you have a legitimate family but in some cases you have someone posing as a family member or to use the children at the service shielded get out of jail free card. shannon: thank you very much. after getting peppered with questions about releasing donald trump's tax returns for 3 hours treasury secretary steve mnuchin and house financial services chair maxine waters got into a heated exchange over his desire to leave for a meeting set up for officials. >> this is a new way, a new day, a new chair and i have the gavel at this point. if you wish to read you may. >> republicans did not treat the secretary treasury this way. you are supposed to take the gavel and baying it. >> do not instruct me in how to conduct this committee.
12:10 am
shannon: is the deadline, the house ways and means committee chairman said, for the irs to turn over the past 6 years of donald trump's tax returns? this is a fox news alert. despite the prognosticators predicting otherwise at a potential indictment, one of donald trump's closest allies is hanging tough in a reelection fight in israel. let's go to jonathan and watching the vote counted nearly mourning in jerusalem. >> in the head to head battle between benjamin netanyahu's party and the blue white party of his chief challenger, odds are close to even at this point but the israeli system forces parties to form a coalition government and the early indications all of the we are getting now, prime minister netanyahu is best place to form a governing coalition and
12:11 am
therefore win another term. >> i was moved the nation of israel want to get interested me for a fifth time and even greater trust. i'm telling you gave gave trust for us and to me. it is unprecedented. >> benjamin netanyahu does succeed in putting together a workable coalition it is likely to tell strongly to the right and some of his coalition partners will be pushing him to fulfill his pre-election plan to annex jewish settlements in the west bank, a move that would effectively kill off the prospects for a palestinian state but israeli defense forces chief of staff and supporters of his centrist blue white party are not conceding defeat yet, quite the opposite. >> in elections there are losers and there are winners and we are winners.
12:12 am
>> the focus if they are excluded from government will be keeping the pressure on benjamin netanyahu over the potential corruption charges the prime minister faces. a hearing on those charges is due within months and as long as those charges are out there, israeli politics will remain clouded by uncertainty so in a literal sense there is a new don behind me in jerusalem, in a political sense very little has changed here in israel. >> thanks for working the early shift, great to see you. the attorney general dropping a bombshell on the fbi and katherine herridge is here with details. >> within a week i will be in a position to release the report to the public. >> harry bittman and tom dupree join us to break it down next. - there are tens if not hundreds of thousands

and you get a new galaxy. say "get a galaxy" to learn more. >> shannon: sticking to his guns, the attorney general says a redacted version shannon: the attorney general says a rejected version of robert mueller at support will be public in the week as house democrats pressure and insult him. katherine herridge is on capitol hill for the hearing today. shannon: lawmakers use the justice department budget hearing to press the attorney general william barr on the timeline. >> this process is going along well. >> democrats one special counsel's findings. >> it would take a serious blow to our democracy. if they report everything. >> reporter: the attorney general cities bound by the law, classified information, ongoing investigation in the privacy of
12:18 am
individuals not charged to be publicly withheld and democrats want the full report as soon as possible some complain bar too quickly releasing a 4-page letter on march 24th documenting mueller's conclusions. >> to evaluate hundreds of pages and make definitive legal conclusions in less than 48 hours i would argue is more suspicious than impressive. >> the thinking of the special counsel was not a mystery to the people at the department of justice prior to his submission of the report. >> the special counsel did not fight against the president on obstruction or did mueller exonerate the president. bar and deputy attorney general rod rosenstein made the call in part because there was no underlying conspiracy between the trump campaign and russia. with a report abstinent release democrats appeared to lay the
12:19 am
groundwork to challenge bar's credibility, the senate majority leader was having none of it. >> it comes down to whether you trust bill bar or not and i do. >> bar testified that he will review criminal referrals from the house republican and the origins of the fbi was he will open investigations to see evidence and we only hope for a second round of testimony tomorrow. shannon: the attorney general has a similar team to investigate the origins of the fbi counterintelligence investigation into the president's 2016 campaign. let's bring in harry bittman, former deputy assistant attorney general and our favorite legal eagles, thank you for coming back tonight. is this different from what we are over the hearing. we know the inspector general is looking at things and there are other spinoffs and investigations. is this sort of an umbrella project for all those things? >> that is the question because
12:20 am
yes, to answer the way you put it, it is different and in a way i never heard of. i don't know time ever has. when an ig report is ongoing it is very unprecedented in my view for the attorney general to step in and launch his own. i really think there's something we haven't fully heard. bar said he prepared to get the report in a month or so, maybe he wants to familiarize himself. i find it difficult to believe this is a new independent investigation under the aegis of the attorney general. >> how worried should members of the previous administration of people high up, many of them gone now, previous administration, how worried should they be about the deep dive the ag is going to overseer get involved with, we know the inspector general is on it. >> of people didn't do anything wrong they shouldn't be worried. what i took from the hearing is bill bar is personally getting
12:21 am
involved and going to get his hands dirty looking at the evidence and looking to immerse himself to come to the right judgment and harry's point that there are ongoing investigations, it would be unusual for the attorney general to duplicate an ongoing investigation by the inspector general but that tells me this is something different. is looking at a different aspect of it, maybe looking at it with a broader lens than the inspector general is but the message we heard loud and clear is he is personally involved in taking this seriously. >> we learned a few nuggets today, it is supposed to be about appropriations and budget request and we knew it would be about the mueller report. there will be a, code system for the redaction so people can know why things have been blacked out or whatever it is going to be and we also learned that before bar put out his letter which is bottom line bullet points they offered mueller a team a chance to look at it and they didn't want to. we don't know why but i want to get both of you to weigh in on
12:22 am
why that is. >> two possibilities, differential or doesn't want any part of it. he knows when the attorney general decides to go the other way and if that is the weight is going to be he doesn't want to be involved at all. that would be my best guest. >> we also have known that there were some discussions before the report was given to bar and his team. they knew some things that were probably coming. >> yes, that was a critical point because we saw the attorney general being beat up. i thought he did a good job clarifying the record saying it wasn't like when i got this report, they'd been in contact with mueller epstein to get a sense of where he was going, by the time they got the report they were ready to hit the ground running and that is why he got the summary out in short order. shannon: they were working with the mueller team on these reductions but that takes the
12:23 am
sting out of democratic accusations that he's doing a cover-up job knowing the mueller team is working with him and going to be released. >> if it weren't for the fact that bar said in his letter he made this judgment, all of this would be hard to interpret. that's the issue that has everyone's credibility up and we are going to get the explanation in short order but i agree with a lot of things. it is a big question since the march 24th letter. shannon: it will be interesting to watch how long it takes democrats supposedly suspicious how bar was able to produce a memo on mueller at key findings to announce their conclusions on the mueller report after its release. >> the over under on that is 30 seconds. shannon: there are demands that congress see the unredacted thing but when 535 people on the hill see the rest of us will see

first stop of his presidential campaign in broward county, florida 13 miles from marjorie stoneman douglas ice, the scene of the 2018 mass shooting, he says he wants gun violence to be front and center in the national policy debate and also believes the president's rhetoric has inspired mass shootings though he did not cite examples and despite the findings of robert mueller's report he believes the president colluded with russia but he is not presented evidence. >> another democratic presidential hopeful, senator cory booker wants to form a commission to study slavery reparations proposals. >> economically programs that balance the scales and address past hills. not just slavery but race conscious programs designed to disadvantage african-americans. >> let's debate with richard fowler and political analyst gianna caldwell. welcome to you, gentlemen. senator booker introduced a
12:32 am
measure on the senate side that matches up with what sheila jackson lee has done which is study the matter and see what they come up with. the line, democrats and reparations, the likelihood reparations whatever become official remains slim and prominent leaders of the black community call the idea nearly impossible to implement. let's start with you. >> the reparation conversations, i think is a scam, a con job news is black america isn't going forward. if you get my instagram, 1000 comments talk about this issue. a lot of black americans reject the narrative. with the democratic candidates are looking to do is a vote for us and if we win there will be a big check for you. although a lot of these
12:33 am
candidates have been pushing this narrative, if you look at the study at issue this is something you can do now. you don't need to run for president to get this done. disappointing that they have from the playbook out the window and -- shannon: do you think these contenders are genuine and others using it as a manipulative tool to gain votes? >> whether they are genuine or not it is unrealistic to believe in the current climate we would pass a reparations bill but here's what we can do and what we need to focus on. there are real harms bills facing people of color in this country whether it is health does it affect the doctors don't listen to black women when they are giving birth or trans women lack women of color who are trans, murderers having an alarming rate and these are issues we could deal with today. democrats and republicans could come together today and assure that schools and affluent neighborhoods are like schools in black neighborhoods.
12:34 am
we agree on these things. that's what we should be talking about and instead the conversation is not realistic and doesn't help people of color because it is not going to happen. shannon: you have a lot of agreement on a lot of issues. something that is getting a lot of attention, former mayor pete buttigieg who is openly gay talking about how he has a problem with mike pence publicly calling him out. i want to play something karen pence said about this back and forth. >> it is strictly okay for us to believe what we believe. people shouldn't take that as attacking what they believe. mike pence can believe what he believes and mayor pete can believe what he believes. shannon: was the middle ground? >> she's perfectly entitled what she believes. here in lies the problem. when you pass policies that are discriminatory to people who don't believe the way you believe that is horrible. this friday there will be a trans been in the military,
12:35 am
15,000 patriots will no longer be able to serve. shannon: not everyone is being kicked out of the service. >> you can no longer sign up. shannon: if you're going to treatment at a time you're supposed to be in service there are people grandfathered in. >> however you want to split >> we want to be factual. >> a discriminatory policy to serve in the military that they can no longer serve. it is only problematic, discriminatory. she's allowed to believe what she wants to believe but she can't enforce policies that hurt people. shannon: a lot of this goes back to what mike pence oversight when he was governor, trying to balance religious rights of business owners like the baker who doesn't want to bake a cake for the wedding of the lgbt community, that is the crux of
12:36 am
what buttigieg is going after mike pence about. >> my grandmother, my grandfather and my dad upside his minister. people have freedom to believe what they want to believe, religious rights are important in this country and when we think about people who have come out against chick-fil-a, they believe the bible and there was a boycott. they say this is what i believe religiously. we should respect those things. that doesn't mean people who are legitimately discriminating against someone for their sexuality, that is problematic but there are some things, like chick-fil-a, was discrimination and that's not discrimination at all. that is where we need common ground, to have our religious rights and protect marginalized classes. shannon: mayor pete said he loves chick-fil-a. he doesn't have a problem with it. maybe we can meet together at chick-fil-a.
