3:00 am
rob: when you win $768 million, first time on national. can you say my butt is warm. jillian: "fox & friends" starts right now. have a good day, everyone. we will see you tomorrow. ♪ if i could turn back time ♪ if i could find the way. ain't ains why in the world woulwould we be playing cher? steve: is a great entertainer. she is to the political left a very prominent member of the political left has taken a stance that even cher says come on, let's turn back time, we have got to change our mind on this thing. ed: enough is you have. ainsley: she even said i would rather be dead than red. she is going against policy of a democrat. we will get into that in a moment but she is not a
3:01 am
republican. steve: you are not brian kilmeade you are in for him today. ed: no. he will be back tomorrow. not red. yankees have won five games in a row. i'm just putting it out there. steve: ed is such a yankees fan. his house key is a yankee key. ainsley: you grew up in new york? ed: grew up in new york. i love the yankees. we have a lot of injuries but we are coming back. steve: you picked a great day to join us on "fox & friends." we start with this: a so-called mother of all caravans made up of, perhaps, 10,000 migrants is inching towards our southern border. ainsley: this as border patrol releases disturbing new video of mugger. >>s. dressed in gear as well. right side of the video. they are helping the immigrants cross into the united states. ed: disturbing story. griff jenkins live from washington. good morning. >> good morning, ed, ainsley and steve. this video is nothing short
3:02 am
of troubling. heavily armed smugglers escorting a family unit in this case a guatemalan woman and her son along the mexico border. this is something i have never seen. border patrol agents rarely see. if this became a regular occurrence it would mark a dangerous shift. highly unusual and highly concerning. another caravan is on the way. this one mexico's interior secretary calls the mother of all caravans officials do put it at roughly 10,000 strong. they are expected to arrive in mexico city soon. our sources on the ground are keeping a watch for it they are expected to be housed in that same sports complex as the last time we were there with our cameras. we are told its makeup is not only central americans but migrants from cuba, haiti and elsewhere. senior advisor to the president jared kushner is speaking out about a comprehensive plan. >> put toke a very detailed proposal for him.
3:03 am
my hope is that we can really do something that unifies people around tcialg -- immigration. >> they expect changes and certainly a lot of things are changing, hopefully not those tactics on the border in that video that you saw, guys. steve: that's right. all right. griff. thank you very much. this mother of all caravans got started the last week of march and apparently by march 29th it had grown to 20,000, which is about half the size -- twice the size that it is right now. right now it's 10,000. one of the reasons for that is that mexico has deported thousands of people. in the crowd they think it's not just people from central america. it's people from cuba, haiti, and africa. ainsley: when you look at that black and white video of the mom and her son being escorted across the border right there. those guys that were helping her. they were wearing tactical gear, long guns, ak 47
3:04 am
assaulted rifles to get her over the border. and then they turned back. the u.s. agents did apprehend the mom and the son. they have have them in i guess you call it custody or one of the shelters down there. but they are worried this is going to become a regular occurrence because those men in the tactical gear they turned back and they're worried this could lead to violence because they are armed. ed: we have not tracked down these smugglers to your point. we have heard reports in recent days children like this often recycled when they do get across the border into the u.s. and help get the parentsor adults in. then those kids are sent back across the border south so they can be used again. this is ridiculous. disgusting. steve: there is story in the news today that apparently border patrol picked up a 3-year-old child at the border on the american side, 3 years old all alone and the child only had their name and a phone number written on their shoe.
3:05 am
so clearly, the child was placed there, taken to america. with a phone number. ainsley: trying to find the parents. ed: another example why kevin mcaleenan is saying mexico has to finally step up. watch? >> we are dealing with a regional phenomenon no, ma'am trafficking that operated in mexico. any solution to reduce this flow is going to have to rely on mexico to take stronger action against people exploiting migrants. we see very large groups moving through mexico towards our border. we have asked for and really appreciate this kind of train deduction of these larger groups. ed: disagree on some of the details. bought line they have to finally admit it's not a manufactured crisis like they have said for a long time. ainsley: they are saying they are overwhelmed. something has to be done. steve: overwhelming the feeling down on wall street. take a look stocks on the
3:06 am
s&p and nasdaq closed at all-time highs. the fox business wall street record headline as you can see right there. also the "wall street journal" s&p 500 and nasdaq closing records. nbc wall street soars to all-time closing high on robust corporate earnings. so wall street is having a really good 2019. ainsley: twitter has to release the quarterly earnings that caused this surge. the earnings outpaced the prediction us. and set to radio lease quarterly earnings today, facebook, tesla and boeing. ed: the president making known the fact that a few months ago the market was down. a lot of media outlets are pointing out it's down under president trump's watch. you mean th stock market hit an all-time record high today and they're actually talking impeachment? will i ever be given credit
3:07 am
for anything by the fake news media or radical liberal dems? no collusion. steve: let me answer you the question will he ever be given credit by the mainstream media? i doubt it. meanwhile a couple nights ago at a town hall five hour town hall over on cnn bernie sanders said something so extraordinary we played you the entire sound bilt yesterday. people have been talking about it. if you missed it, we are going to play it because it has stirred up the democrats. listen. >> you have said that you believe that people with felony records should be allowed to vote while in prison. does this mean that you would support enfranchising people like the boston marathon bomber, a convicted terrorist and murderer? >> i think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. yes. even for terrible people. so i believe that people commit crimes they pay the price. they get out of jail, i believe they certainly
3:08 am
should have the right to vote. i believe even if they are in jail they are paying their price to society that should not take away their inherent american right to participate in our democracy. ed: so shocking president trump agrees with part of that which is after, after you have paid your debt to society and served your time. you should be able to get back on your feet and get a job. that's the whole point of criminal justice reform. passed to sign into law bipartisan basis. this is about while you are in prison, even if you are a terrorist, even if you have been convicted of terror or other awful crimes you should be able to vote. steve: , this ladies and gentlemen, is where cher comes. in. ed: that's where she draws the line. ainsley: she tweeted this nau deleted post do bernie sanders really believe that people in prison who are murderer hes, you reignist, child molesters boston bombers still deserve the right to vote? steve: seth moulton announced he is running for president. people in prison don't vote when you get out you should
3:09 am
have those rights restored your point. stephen lynch up in massachusetts for a long time said people in prison don't vote but when you get out, then you should have those rights restored. lynch said i don't believe individuals incarcerated for serious crimes should be allowed to vote, period. ed: can i point out that cher about a week ago when president trump was talking about busing illegal immigrants coming across the border to sanctuary cities and democrats are whoa, this is crazy. cher actually tweeted at that time she said something to the effect we can't take any more in los angeles. we have some homeless people including veterans we have to take care of americans first. president trump retweeted that my point being she is taking on her own party saying some of these ideas are so radical. ainsley: she would rather be dead than red. she is not becoming a republican or conservative. she is disagreeing with some of these ludicrous policies. dan bongino is reminding us how the boston bomber is the worst of the worst. should he be allowed to
3:10 am
vote? >> can you believe we are having these conversations? we are on your cable television show in front of, what, 3 million plus people actually having a conversation about the boston bomber, a savage man beast who built a pressure cooker bomb filled with ball bearings and nails, placed feet away from an 8-year-old kid and many others by the way, watched it detonate and then fled, led the police on a chase and shot up a city. we are having a conversation on your show about the leading democrat enemy states, bernie sanders, advocating for this peels of human waste to vote. can you imagine politicians pandering to this savage for a vote in bernie's america, that's the kind of place you will be looking at. his words, by the way. he supports this. not us. ainsley: can you believe he is talking about this what if it were your child with
3:11 am
the bomb pack nex pack in it wod you want him to vote? steve: do we want that policy across the country? we will talk to a boston firefighter ed kelly who responded to the boston marathon bombing. his wife also ran in the marathon that day. going to be with us about an hour from right now right here on this channel. ed: how is that going to play for bernie and iowa and other states in the middle of the country. might play okay in vermont. ainsley: right. iowa. south carolina. tennessee. texas. good luck. steve: and with cher. ed: cher will say i don't like this. steve: meanwhile time to share the stage with jillian. jillian: good morning. we begin with a fox news alert. trummilitary orchestra playing as he stepped off the armored train. kim and putin will meet tomorrow to discuss the nuclear program. they will focus on the quote positive trend from
3:12 am
president trump and will and kim's previous nuclear talks a driver deliberately ran into a group in california. youngest victim is a 13-year-old girl. police in sunny veil near san who he hay the suspect sped through intersection and crashed into a tree. the unidentified driver is under arrest but has not yet been charged. police believe this was intentional. say it's too early to rule out terror. well, it's official for joshed. kind of; sources tell fox news the vice president will announce 2020 white house run tomorrow with a video. biden was supposed to make it official today but those plans were scrapped. it's not exactly clear why the announcement has been up in the air. set to make first announcement in pittsburgh on monday. movie stars like fast food. matthew mcconnell hay going back to texas roots and shocking employees as a whataburger drive-thru. >> thank you. bi.
3:13 am
bibye. bye. jury in he delivering from dazed and confused. he told the employees he would only say it if they got his order right. and i guest they did. steve: all right, all right, all right. ainsley: he seems like a lot of fun. i was trying to see what he was driving. seems like a white suv. steve: thank you, jillian. 13 minutes after the top of the hour now. on the ground in sri lanka as isis has claimed responsibility for the bombings that killed 350 people. ainsley: daniel hoffman says the terror group is still dangerous even after losing their physical caliphate and he is on deck. sometimes, the pressures of today's world can make it tough
3:14 am

3:15 am
3:16 am
3:17 am
steve: we're back with a fox news alert. the fbi is now in sri lanka helping to track down the terrorists behind the easter sunday attacks that has killed about 360 people. video reportedly showing the attackers pledging leedges to aallegiance to the isis. how deeply was isis actually involved on christians and werners? here with insight fox news contributor and former cia station chief daniel hoffman. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: we have made a lot in the last couple weeks over the fact that the isis caliphate doesn't exist. i understand international
3:18 am
authorities have been tracking release 40 sri lankaens who went to fight with isis in the caliphate. now they want to know did they come home and is this what happened? >> right. reportedly some of them did make it home and they could have been involved in plotting this attack. what we don't know is whether the seven who were a part of that isis video yesterday who were masked any of them had actually traveled to the so-called caliphate. make no mistake, this attack was about isis seeking to demonstrate in spite of the laws of their geographic space that they are still capable of mounting terrorist attacks against soft, religious, and tourist targets worldwide. steve: sure. and they are also still good at using the internet. there they put up that propaganda with that video yesterday. is that one of the reefnsz why sri lanka has shut down facebook and some of the other social media platforms? >> that's the reason that they gave for doing that. they will also lose a means of collecting against those targets when they shut that
3:19 am
down. that apparently was one of the reasons why. no question they are extraordinarily active in cyberspace even though they don't have the graphic space they once held. they use cyberspace to recruit radical islamic extremists to mount these sorts of attacks and plan the attacks and then they use social media to the results of their despicable act. steve: sure got to frustrate you as intelligence surveillance know 10 days before this happened you know, essentially the government was given a heads up. hey, we have got some good intel. this group is going to try something. they are going to try to strike churches and nothing was done about it. >> right. reportedly the government of india passed intelligence to sri lanka indicating that one of the local sunni jihadist groups inside sri lanka planned to attack the end i can't believe embassy in colombo as well as
3:20 am
churches. that's a tipoff 10 days before the attack. then you have roughly 40 terrorists who are arrested and then there was apparently some money involved in planning the attack and discussion in cyberspace about how they would do it. there were ample opportunities for sri lanka to detect these threats and then preempt them so didn't lose over 300 people as you noted and 500 wounded in the attacks. steve: our fbi is on the ground now in sri lanka. the counter-terrorism experts. let's see what they find out. daniel hoffman, thank you for joining us live from d.c. >> thank you. steve: 6:20 in new york city on this wednesday morning. owning and carrying a gun in one state is about to get really expensive. the governor there wants to raise some gun fees by only 2,000%. are lawmakers trying to price out law abiding gun owners? it looks like it. that conversation coming up next. you are watching "fox & friends." ♪ ♪ oh something bad

population head count for kicks and giggles. hundreds of billions of program dollars are distributed. here is the fun part. how many each seat has in the house of representatives with that the electoral college votes for each state. if the millions of illegals, 11 to 22 million in the country are deterred from participating. the democrats losing federal dollars and seats especially states like mine. that is why they don't like that question. ainsley: isn't it amazing that the government is not allowed to know whether or not you are a citizen or whether or not you are here legally or illegally? >> illegal should never be allowed to determine representation or federal funding. american people are allowed to know who is in this country and who we are paying for. absolutely should be allowed to ask the citizenship question. i hope the supreme court does the right thing. ed: along the southern border armed smugglers escorting immigrants across the southern border. it makes you wonder about

4:01 am
video of smugglers armed with assault rifles helping immigrants cross into the u.s. steve: we have not only got new video. we have new numbers. they are jaw-dropping and griff jenkins joins us live from washington. griff? >> they are good morning. i have been talking to border patrol agents all morning. the ones i talk to say they are troubled and deeply concerned with that new surveillance video that shows heavily armed smugglers escorting a family unit. in this case it was a guatemalan woman and her son along the u.s. mexico border. taken into custody without incident. and the smugglers turned back across the border. one agent tells me you have got to note a couple things troubling. one area unimpeded no wall or structure to stop anyone. this is not normal. this raises the tension for real violent conflict especially if it becomes a regular occurrence it marks a very dangerous shift in tactics. meanwhile as you mentioned. another caravan on the way. this one mexico coy's interior secretary calling the caravana madre or mother
4:02 am
of all caravans. 10,000 strong. it's headed to mexico city. our sources on the ground are keeping annual eye on it they are expected to be housed in that same sports complex as the last time that we were there with our cameras. we are told this makeup though includes migrants not only from central america but also from cuba, haiti and africa. cbp also saying today to twitter just moments ago that there are new numbers for the total apprehensions for this year. just in the last seven months of fiscal year 2019, they have raised 413,000 sur passing the entitle year for fiscal year 18. that's significant not only because it's such a large number and only seven months but because we are in the heaviest trafficked part in april and may when it is most conducive to travel across that border. we shall keep this updated. we have reached out to cbp for comment. we seal what they have to say. steve: are your people in
4:03 am
border patrol suggesting what the ultimate number for this year could somebody in last year it was 4 million area it sounds like it could double that. >> they when i spoke to mexico's interior secretary i asked her what she thinks shoe. he said on camera to me that there were more than 800,000 central american family units alone. they anticipate. so by any logical guess that number could reach as close to a million. ainsley: in that video when we saw the mom with her 8-year-old child and saw all the men in tactical gear armed in that video and they put the mom and son underneath that fence one of them comes over with themmenned the other goes back to the mexican side. do they -- are these individuals people that like families hire to get them across the border to protect them? >> they nor doubt, ainsley, that the cartel controls that border every single person that comes across. what you are seeing them go
4:04 am
through is actually just intended to be a barrier for vehicles. it is not intended to stop people from coming across. that's why in this specific area they very frequently see large family groups just peaceably coming to be apprehended and become part of our catch and release system. the fact that they're having armed smugglers escort them which you only see in the case of large contraband like narcotics is very, very significant. and troubling. ainsley: our agents did get the mom and son because of catch and release they are here to stay. >> indeed. steve: it's as troubling to see the smugglers with big guns because we have the men and women of the border patrol on the southern border and they don't need to get shot at. ed: democrats said this was a manufactured crisis. see bits of information like this disturbing video. add that to the numbers. the fact in seven months border apprehensions have now reached what they were
4:05 am
in the previous 12 months. five more months to go in this fiscal year. this is going to keep going up and up and occupy. steve: the president would say see, that's who i'm talking about. this is why we need to do something about our southern border. nancy pelosi yesterday at the time 100 forum says she wants to talk about the president about infrastructure because clearly the two sides can get together on infrastructure yet, when you have this problem at our southern border, the two sides are nowhere near. ainsley: the number this morning is 20. because in 2020 there are 20 people on the democratic side who want to be president. guess who number 20 is? joe biden. is he supposed to get in the race tomorrow. remember, he was going to today. they changed that plan. that was scrapped. and a video is supposed toen released tomorrow saying hey, i'm in. steve: tomorrow night then he is going to have a big fund raiser monday have a trip to a union hall in pittsburgh. that will be the first time we see him out on the stump and then next week he is going to iowa, new hampshire, and south carolina.
4:06 am
keep in mind joe biden has run for president twice before. it didn't work out. back in '88 he had to drop out because he reportedly plagiarized a speech by u.k. politician by the name of neil kinneck. 2008 the day after the iowa caucuses he dropped out because he only had 1%. eventually become vice president to the guy who did win the race that was barack obama. ed: both times he ran before he was in the single digits as president trump has pointed out by calling him 1% joe. he pointed that out in the midterms. look at these poll numbers because you have to remember that context when you look at the current polls. yes, joe biden is at the top largely because of name i.d. 27% in this poll. bernie sanders at 20%. mayor pete 8%. kamala harris 8%. elizabeth warren at 6%. here's the point. joe biden as a former vice president, name i.d. very high. been in washington for decades. he is at the top. when he has run without barack obama on the ballot
4:07 am
with him. in single digits. is his best day th the first day? you have so many candidates chipping away. steve: big question is he was vice president to barack obama. where is barack obama? you would think he would come out and say you know, joe is my man for 8 years and was at my side. ed: barack obama did not come out and defend him during the hugging and kissing allegations. steve: will be he be anywhere to see in the next week. people i talk to in washington say no. ainsley: the democratic party do you want the centrist, someone more establishment that would be the joe biden or very, very progressive? that's bernie sanders? it's a split party right now. ed: martha had a great exclusive with martha on "the story." we can talk all these candidates reaching 20. ainsley said all you want. it's going to come down to the key issues that president trump is focused on. russia thinks the president

is going to wi ---rushlimbaugh - >> they don't have a chance. joe biden and crazy bernie and mayor pete? three white guys, two of them are brontosauruses from jurassic park and that's not going to sit well with the rest of this party which has gone so far left. biden is putting off this announcement. i don't know how badly he really wants this. and you have to really want this if you are going to have any chance at winning it. steve: see, the key is when you are in the primary, to win the primary, have you do the to go way in this case to the left. he is going to stay in the center. the big question is will that be a message that will resonate with the primary voters on the left? because the party has moved way left since he was vice president. ed: will biden go along with the resist movement on the left question ofism people.
4:09 am
reaction to the mueller report? steve: impeachment is that a big thing on the left? ed: harry reid the former senate majority leader saying look, democrats, focus on the election in 2020. don't be talking about impeachment. it's a mistake. guess what happens? maxine waters goes on television and mentions impeachment seven times in five minutes. watch this. >> impeachment, impeachment, impeachment, impeachment. impeachment. which are you going to impeach. the congress of the united states we are going to have to do it. we are going to have to impeach. i just wish it was sooner than later. steve: okay. i guess we know where she is. remember we heard from sources on the conference call on monday night at 5:00. she would go yeah, i'm for impeachment. i'm not trying to talk anybody who is on the phone into my point of view. ed: nancy pelosi on that call was saying look, folks. we will keep investigating. let's stay away from impeachment from now. her former colleague harry reid he weighs at a forum out in las vegas yesterday
4:10 am
saying democrats should just forget about this. focus on the election. focus on 2020. watch. >> impeachment is a difficult decision. some say mueller's report was an invitation for impeachment. but, we have just a short time until the next election. if impeachment proceedings go forward and they might go forward, i think this country will be spending inordinate amount of time on impeachment and nothing else. i don't think we can afford that. ed: will the base listen? they want to go after the president. ainsley: the problem is when you look at that report, there was no collusion. when it comes to object destruction they said there wasn't enough evidence. the president maybe mentioned that he didn't want mueller to investigate. keep in mind. this investigation all started with this unverified dossier. that's why he didn't want the investigation. he said because it's bogus. it's false. i didn't do anything. he never got rid of mueller. he never fired mueller. it never actually happened. what basis can they impeach?
4:11 am
steve: it's not criminal. it's political. they feel is he not the legitimate president of the united states and that's one way to do it. ed: mueller did not come to a decision in the report on the question of obstruction. democrats saying that's an opening that basically mueller was laying out the facts as he saw them and is leaving it to congress to make a decision. steve: we are going to talk to rudy giuliani the president's attorney about 20 minutes from right now about these issues and many more. so stay tuned for that. ainsley: meanwhile jillian is here and has headlines for us. jillian: hello. we have update on terrible tragedy we are following. begin with the fox news alert. sri lankan president asking press secretary and national police chief to resign over missed warning science ahead of the easter attacks. now in sri lanka helping hunt down the terrorists. new video claims to shoat islamic militants pledging

4:19 am

do you think that's what he said that dough car tsarnaev should wind up voting? or is that something he made a mistake on. >> i think senator sanders is a pretty intelligence man not that i agree with all of his standards. i think he is in this game long enough. i don't think he misspoke. i think he knows exactly how he feels. i think that's a dangerous for the leader of our democracy and person who wants to be the leader of our democracy saying that people who attack our democracy deserve a voice to vote and how we protect ourselves. which is the first obligation in a democracy. steve: have you got to feel good that there have been a number of prominent democrats including seth moulton he said bernie is wrong about that. >> yeah, i mean i think who is running to his defense on this one? i don't see where someone that killed five people now with, you know, the three people that were killed in the bombing that day including little martin richard from my neighborhood

defending myself and serving justice but these commented demd prosecutors never heard that in american law or roman law or any law they turned it in we assume is he guilty. if he says to somebody don't cooperate or cooperate he is saying it because he wants the truth to come out. what he said was cooperate but tell the truth. but they don't buy that it's the truth. so this day they don't buy there is no collusion. they had two investigations to approve it the counterintelligence investigation and the words of peter strzok no there there. and then this one. how this ever got started in the first place is the next investigation. and ms. clinton better get a lawyer. steve: she said the reasonable he wasn't indicted because there is a doj standing you cannot indict a sitting president.
4:36 am
>> there used to be a policy you can't indict a clinton no much how much evidence they destroy and how much they lie and no matter how often they committed perjury. you can't indict a clinton it's against the democrat justice department rules. this is not a democrat justice department not a republican justice department. i prosecuted republicans and democrats i didn't think either one of them had a virtue. ed: you think william barr is going to follow up? >> i have no doubt. i have no inside information zero other than the fact this is a moan no believes in justifiable. if you believe this justice. this can't help but anger you and frighten you. if this can be done to the president of the united states a frame up like this. believe me this wasn't by accident. this wasn't like oh, this collusion. something like this has all the markings of counter intelligence guys setting up papadopoulos, setting up the meeting with don jr.
4:37 am
starting appear investigation on what papadopoulos said is worthless. he just said the russians have dirty information and they start this gigantic investigation. comey starts it. right after he finishes with hillary? and he takes the same people investigating hillary who were in love with her, peter strzok and hated trump. puts them in charge with it? all those things have to be explored and more. and i ask you to keep your eye on ukraine because in ukraine a lot of the dirty work was done in digging up the information. american officials, leaders, ukrainian officials were used. that's like collusion with the ukrainians and actually in this case conspiracy with the ukrainians. i think it gives some information information about joe biden from ukraine about his son hunter biden about. a company he was on the board of for years which may be one of the most crooked companies in ukraine. ukrainian russian company. not ukrainian big difference there. the guy they tossed out and
4:38 am
manafort got in all the trouble with the guy who owns it worked for -- pulled 10 billion out of the ukraine has been a fugitive when biden's kid first went to work there and biden bragged about the fact that he got the prosecutor general fired. prosecutor general was investigating his son and et investigation went south. steve: i'm sure we will hear more about that now that biden is getting in tomorrow. ainsley: that's what everyone said but after james comey had that press conference when you committed the crime using your secret emails and then smashing smashing them bleach bidding which shows intent. >> and comey came to the opposite conclusion. there was no proof of intent. and she made several false statements and she had her people destroy it o none of
4:39 am
them indicted how about the guy who actually did it, boom, boom, boom. they weren't indicted. nobody tried to turn them the way they put manafort in jail and in solitary confinement to turn him. i mean, they used every lever at their disposal to get him. it was an enthusiastic over zealous i believe unethical group of prosecutors. some of them with a long history of lack of ethics and they still couldn't get him. even they couldn't make obstruction case so they had to throw this garbage out and then leave a lot of facts out you read about cohen. you don't read about why you can't believe cohen. they had a duty to lay out the things that made cohen's testimony incredible. the fact he perjured himself in front of congress for which he should be indicted. ed: there have been reports. >> for sure. ed: you are on the inside the president is upset that aides testified in front of congress and they were taking notes and that was used in the mueller report.
4:40 am
quote. there was no reasonable to go any further, especially in congress where it's very partisan, obviously very partisan. i allowed my lawyers and all the people to go and testify to mueller. you know how i feel about whole group of people who did the mueller report. i was so transparent they testified for so many hours the president said they have all that information that has been given, i could have taken the absolute opposite route. is he talking about the fact that he could have invoked executive privilege. >> like clinton did day after day after day after day. and now, is he already -- he has given them everything. i'm not making this decision. this is white house council. executive privilege. i wouldn't give him a damn thing. i would make him go to court and justify their investigation. i don't think they can. i would also have them go to court and say how can we expect fairness when a guy like cohen comes in front of you. elijah cummings says i'm going to throw the book at you if you lie. then he insults accommodation by lying to him at least seven times. i will give you one quickly
4:41 am
just like that. i never asked for a pardon. read the report. the report says he asked for a pardon. i know he asked for a pardon because he asked me through his lawyer for a pardon. his lawyer has testified he asked for a pardon. another one of his lawyers i got five witnesses for that one. i never asked for a job i will get chris cuomo's tape where two days after the elections he says i want to be chief of staff and i will play it against his tape which says i never asked for a job. perjury personally. steve: go after him. >> if cummings doesn't go after him and joint referral, then i would say he has proven he is illegitimate chairman who is conducting a committee hearing for the democratic national committee not for congress. this is not a congressional hearing. they are making a mockery of a correctional hearing. what legislation are they going to pass don't commit perjury? what are they going to pass with i had taxes the irs investigated his taxes.
4:42 am
they exist to come after us if we don't pay our taxes. we know they are damn good and they are confidential and they don't leak. if they haven't gone after him on taxes, that six-year period, then there is nothing wrong with his taxes. they can't investigate his taxes better than the irs. they want his taxes to embarrass him. because, you know any. steve: it's just all political. >> that's why a court has a very good chance of ruling this is obstructive, this is harassment, this is not the proper use of legislative power but fight every subpoena they are entitled to nothing. this is like the judge saying i'm going to hang you but let's have a little trial first. steve: mayor, always a pleasurable. ed: thanks for coming in. steve: wide ranging. ainsley: and the yankees are doing well. >> well, that's because i prayed to god.

5:01 am
as mother of all caravans, with as many as 10,000 migrants heading to our border. ed: griff jenkins is live in washington with all the details. good morning, griff. reporter: as they say the numbers don't lie. cpb tweeting this number, the total number of border apprehensions for the first seven months of this fiscal year 2019, is 418,000, surpassing the total for all of fiscal year 2:08 which is just over 404,000. over the southwest border there have been 414,000 arrests compared to 396 now last year. well those numbers, they are going to grow. another caravan on the way. mexico interior secretary calling it the mother of all caravans. officials say it is roughly 10,000 strong. let me give you context. officials in the rio grande sector said they had nearly

9,000 apprehensions there alone. officials are having to set up tents in the rvg to house migrants. this is frustrated for overworked, overwhelmed agents. it does nothing to change the policy in washington where they want so desperately to see change. another troubling thing, in the video heavily armed smugglers with a woman and her son. they call this highly unusual, highly concerning. one agent tells me, if this becomes a regular occurrence, this is dangerous shift in smuggler tactics, this could lead to violence own the border. yesterday we heard from senior white house advisor jared kushner says they're working on a plan on immigration. he will present to the president this week or next. whenever it comes, it can't come soon enough for men and women on the border and on the interior where they have to deal with the migrants being released because

5:08 am
yes, even for terrible people. so i believe that people, commit crimes, they pay the price. when they get out of jail, i believe they certainly should have the right to vote. i do believe even if they're in jail, they're paying the price in society. that should not take away their inherent american right to participate in our democracy. ed: had ever chance to put a caveat, but if terrorist, that would be different. he said, no matter what. you're in jail, rapist, you deserve voting rights. steve: boston bomber, tsarnaev why can't he vote in the 2020 election? we had head of national firefighters association, ed kelly, came up from washington, d.c., this morning. he lived in boston most of his wife. his wife was actually two blocks away from the finish line when the pressure cooker bombs went off. he said this idea of bernie's felons in prison can vote is

dumb. >> i think that's a dangerous platform for the leader of our democracy, a person wants to be the leader of our democracy, people that attack our democracy deserve a voice, vote. society has rules, if you break those rules, we have, there is repercussions. one of those repercussions you lose the right to vote. when you talk about terrorists from nigeria to afghanistan attack polling places, attack the fundamental principle of democracy, the ability to vote, why would we ever left a murderer, who murdered children like the boston marathon bomber have a voice in our democracy? ed: even cher tweeted this was a dumb idea. then deleted it because the left freaked out. why is cher. when you lost cher you know it is a pretty bad idea. steve: steve scalise, the minority whip said on this channel, democrats want to take

5:18 am
syria and iraq and before we essentially went in there and diminished, demolished them completely and they go back on the internet and chat rooms and mosques, they preach hatred for the next wave of recruits. they use the internet, the dark web, to build, plot, plan, execute a wave of what we call know mad or solo terror attacks. these are equally dangerous. we saw these attacks with the north vietnamese during the vietnam war. saw these attacks with hamas in israel. saw these with hezbollah in southern lebanon. when the marine barracks were attacked by that terror group. this dispersion allows them to regroup. it allows them to function very much like the cia would, very much like our intelligence unit would. so it is very dangerous. tough keep pressure on them. ed: keep pressure on them. i'm reminded last administration in america, president obama talked about isis being the jv

5:26 am
a pain trail when they say common sense or reasonable gun safety laws, they're talking about gun bans. it was interesting to me to watch kamala harris speak more harshly of second amendment rights than she did about the boston bomber voting or about felons in prison now. she was more willing to convict gun owners saying you don't have the courage to actually pass gun safety laws when the fact is, it is actually pro-gun groups and regular everyday americans who have been at the forefront of making sure that felons don't have guns, putting safety into their communities through education in different programs, training programs for children, to make sure they're not around guns. so when she is proposing universal back ground checks, what she is saying, if you're a father who wants to pass down a check to your gun you can't do that unless you go through pa bureaucratic or get a license from the federal government. when she talks about gun safety laws, she talks about a ban on assault weapons, if you look at the data, according to the clinton justice department that
5:27 am
didn't actually have an effect on crime. the majority of crimes in this country committed with guns are committed with handguns. when it comes to addressing the issue of violent crime and firearms, going after second amendment rights of everyday americans. she is not actually addressing issue. ainsley: is this a winning message? she represents california. that might be a good message out there. what about middle america or the heartland or the south. >> look at electoral map, kamala harris to win the nomination for the democrats what she would have to do to beat donald trump this is not a message. gun quon fistcation, gun control by executive fiat, taking away gun rights through tyrannical executive orders without due process that doesn't play well in ohio, michigan, wisconsin. in her town hall she said you can go hunting giving you permission to do so. the second amendment doesn't say the right to go hunting. it says the right to bear arms. you can't come in as president simply wipe away second amendment rights of americans
5:28 am
without going through congress first. ainsley: think about the voters who have guns, they do do it, hunt as a sport, teach their sons how to hunt and bring the meat home and those men and those women want to have guns to protect their families in case someone breaks into their house. >> right. ainsley: she is telling them i will take away those rights. that is not something they want to hear. >> she is doing it in a way that convicts them of a crime that has not been committed. she is saying they are the problem. the reason we're talking about gun control in political sense we have seen the mass shootings, absolutely who are risk and awful but if you look as at facts cases, federal government and local government failing and using second amendment rights and law-abiding americans as a scapegoat. parkland is perfect example. everyone failed at local school level, local sheriff level, and local government level. dylann roof was not able to pass a background check yet he did, he slipped through the cracks.

hillary clinton breaking her silence on the mueller report. look at this? >> there is enough there, that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted. what i thought it was saying is, look we think he obstructed justice. here are 11 examples why we think he obstructed justice but we're under the control of the justice department and their rule is you can't indict. steve: some have said she was actually let off the hook by the department of justice from that whole email thing. former white war independent counsel, former federal prosecutor robert ray joins us now here in studio f. good morning. >> good morning. >> steve: is she right. is that the reason mueller found what he did, because there is doj ruling that you can't indict a sitting president? >> the report raise as reasonable question whether or not that was so. that is why the attorney general before the report was released
5:45 am
to the public, went back to the special counsel apparently on more than one occasion as he said in his press conference to inquire, let me be sure i understand this. are you saying and the answer that came back is, no, that is not what i'm saying. so i know people in some quarters don't want to listen to what the attorney general actually said but while that is a reasonable question hillary clinton has it exactly wrong. that is not the reason. steve: but at the same time had she not set up that private email server at her house to skirt the state department rules, she probably would be president? >> i think that there was obviously as we now know lots of discussion in the justice department about how it was, you know, appropriate to resolve that investigation. if you recall also there was a scathing op-ed piece by the former attorney general michael mukasey shortly before the election saying he couldn't understand why under the
5:46 am
relevant statutes the reasons that jim comey indicated while a prosecution was not appropriate actually really were department policy but the bottom line is the exercise of discretion and departmental policy is what hillary clinton has to thank for the fact that she wasn't charged with a criminal offense. steve: you mentioned james comey. during one of his two infamous press conferences he said this regarding hillary clinton. although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. and i know much has been made of that expression, reasonable prosecutor, because a lot of reasonable prosecutors said i would have done it. >> there was the whole other question which is at the time that statement was made james comey was not a prosecutor although he had been one. he was the fbi director. so that was the a situation which you have a currently-serving fbi director who formally was a prosecutor
5:47 am
stepping outside of his lane to resolve a criminal case which is judgment that the department should have made based on application of department policy and this is a situation where you have a special counsel who is a former fbi director who is in the position of being special counsel who has decided that the traditional, you know, prosecutorial factors and the exercise of discretion would not be exercised by him but ultimately had to be exercised by the attorney general bill barr. steve: sure. it is pretty clear with the mueller report there was no sewclusion, no cooperation with the trump administration, the trump campaign and the russians. they, russians tried but the trump people didn't bite. >> not insignificant finding by the way. steve: that is what it is all about. we heard there was russia collusion. turns out there was not. when comes down to the obstruction stuff that is more ambiguous, it looks like this? was there intent? we don't know. we're not going to decide. >> democrats want to ignore the fact that there is ambiguous
5:48 am
evidence. of course prosecutors deal with ambiguous situations involving making a determination to exercise discretion one way or another in deciding whether or not to bring charges. all of that has of course has been overlooked. people look to the report. democrats said, obstruction, the evidence there is absolutely clear. you know i beg it differ. and not only do i beg to differ which really doesn't matter, the special counsel himself indicated he begs to differ. in his own words, the words that were quoted before the report was released by the attorney generals the obstruction piece presents difficult questions of law and fact and i might also add, policy as well. and discretion in that sense has been exercised both by the special counsel and later by the attorney general. all of which hillary clinton has in effect ignored. notwithstanding the fact she has been the beneficiary of that prosecutorial discretion several times, not only in connection with the email investigation but
5:49 am
going back to my own investigation, whitewater, and the firing of the travel office employees where i made the judgment based upon the exercise of discretion that a properly instructed jury that would be evaluating a case like this probably would not convict and therefore i exercised my discretion not to prosecute her. steve: who knows the subject better than you. robert ray. >> nice to be with you, thank you. steve: coming up, top dogs are on fox square ready to compete. look it there. and he is off. we'll check in with sandra smith for a preview of coming attractions. >> good morning steve. in sri lanka another bomb reportedly found and detonated there. new video surfacing of the bomber in the hotel. plus we could get reaction from the president as he is set to depart the white house a short time from now as he says there is no reason to go any further with house democrat demands for additional testimony. so where does that fight go
