12:18 pm
>> shep, good afternoon to you. it's pouring here at the white house. ceremonial guard assembling for shinzo abe's arrive value. the lightning and thunder now begins here. there's cautious optimism from the white house about words that xi jinping said. the chief economic advise tore the president, larry kudlow on fox news with his assessment of what he said. listen here. >> i think the president would like to meet with president xi and close the trade deal if the trade deal is "a great one for america" to quote potus. we had a long meeting. made a lot of head way. no question about that. we've talked about it more and gone further towards reform than ever before in u.s.-china relations.
12:19 pm
it's not done yet. >> looks like there could be a break through. the key points in xi's speech is when he said we will establish a binding enforcement system for international agreements. this is something that he has never said before and an absolutely critical element in signing a new trade deal with the united states. xi promised "to eliminate improper rules, subsidies and practices that impede fair competition and distort the market." but as important as it is for china to end things, as important as it is for china to address things like intellectual property, theft, forced technology transfer, restrictions to the chinese market and ensure there's robust system of enforcement in place, u.s. officials say the real critical part of this is monitoring. they say having an enforcement regime in place means nothing in less you can monitor what china is up to. shinzo abe will be here shortly
12:20 pm
at the white house. trade will obviously be on the agenda. supposed to be a picture of shinzo abe. the united states and japan hope to have in place some sort of an agreement for japan to lower tariffs on u.s. agricultural goods. we're told the talks on that didn't go well yesterday. so may not be in place by the time the two meet this afternoon. there's shinzo abe. here's what larry kudlow said about that process. listen here. >> it's not done yet. i won't get ahead of the curve. bob lighthizer is working on that. we'll see. >> the president and abe will have a lot of quality time to talk about trade. they'll be meeting in the oval office this even. they will get together for dinner for the first lady's birthday and then to play golf tomorrow. >> shepard: the president was at the nra thing.
12:21 pm
did somebody throw a cell phone at him or in his direction? >> that's what it looks like. that's what the u.s. secret service is investigating. it was as the president was walking up on the stage. you see something there fly across in front there. there it is in slow motion. lands on the far side of the stage. it doesn't like like whoever through that was throwing it at the president. it landed about 20 feet away from him. the secret service contained the individual. they're trying to figure out what his intention was and whether or not there should be charged brought against him, state or federal. i've been monitoring my phone because i'm hoping to hear -- just got something a second ago. no, no from the secret service. but we do hope to have a statement from them very soon on what happened there, shep. >> shepard: thanks, john roberts. out in the rain. the russian woman that admits she was working as a secret agent for the kremlin in the

12:27 pm
they said she was building a back channel communications link with american conservatives and the russian government. she met multiple times with government officials including moscow's ambassador to the u.s., sergei kislyak. butina promised him contact information. then took notes for the russian foreign ministry. there were multiple unsuccessful efforts the court heard to bring together the russian president and presidential candidates. she worked for a wealthy politician named alexander torsion that was very close to putin. after the hearing today, butina's lawyers pointed to the fact that she doesn't even appear in the special counsel investigation in the part about collusion, at least not the part that is unredacted. here's her attorney. >> i found it curious that that was mentioned, that what she did
12:28 pm
was during the time of russian election interference alleged by the judge when in fact had she been involved in any of that, i would imagine special counsel mueller would have mentioned it somewhere in his 400 pages if she had anything to do with it. >> maria butina has been held in one of two jails, d.c. or virginia since july after last year and looking at eight or nine months. both sides could agree that once the sentence is finished, they would like her deported immediately, shep. >> shepard: catherine herridge, thanks. >> you're welcome. >> shepard: remember the woman that pretended to be a millionaire, german heiress ranking all over new york? it's all caught up with her now and she could go to prison. a jury convicted her of swindling tens of thousands and more. investigators say her real name

>> shepard: lawyers for the new england patriots owner bob kraft are in court right now trying to keep video of him and others in a day spa in south florida from becoming public. investigators say kraft paid two women for sex acts in that spa. they videoed it. kraft's attorneys say the hidden cameras violated their client's constitutional rights. we're learning what kraft told the cops when they busted him in the first play. he wasn't shy about cops knowing who he was. phil keating outside the courthouse. first, heated moments i hear during the proceedings. >> yeah, it was quite contentious. kind of like a mini trial happening with bob kraft's high profile legal team moving from the controversial videotape issue and straight to the heart of the investigation. and that is the search warrant itself which ultimately led to
12:35 pm
all of the secret hidden cameras being placed inside the asian massage parlor. looking live, this hearing has been underway for four hours. they just stopped for a ten-minute break. kraft's attorney spent three hours drilling detective andrew sharp that obtained the sneak and peek warrant which allowed cops to hide cameras. cops accused the jupiter p.d. of exaggerating and all of the warrants and evidence should be tossed out. >> there's an affidavit that goes before a judge, right? >> correct. >> signed by a judge, right? >> right. >> sworn to in front of a judge? >> yes, sir. >> that ends up with a video sneak and peek warrant that videotaped private citizens naked in massage rooms. >> the search warrant request,
12:36 pm
the affidavit, described the investigation as a human sex tasking ring, which is far more serious than misdemeanor prostitution sting. nobody has been charged with human trafficking. the point that kraft's defense team is making. as for now, all of those videotapes of these alleged sex acts remain seals, shep. >> shepard: can you take us back to arrest day and let us know what happened then? >> yeah, the jupiter cop pulled kraft and his driver over in his white bentley after they allegedly left the asian day spa. according to the officer that made the traffic stop, they asked if he was a dolphin -- kraft asked the officer if he was a dolphin fan. he said he was very polite. he said he owned the new england patriots and needed to get to kansas city for the afc championship game. he told him -- he showed him his
12:37 pm
super bowl ring, which presumably he was wearing inside the day spa. shep. >> shepard: thanks, phil. let's go to stewart kaplan now, a former fbi agent and criminal and civil rights attorney. good to see you. >> good afternoon. >> shepard: you had to figure something would have to change in strategy. the sunshine laws are hard to beat in florida, so instead of talking about we want to keep the video from the public, they're trying to get it all tossed. >> rightfully so, shepard. i'm so happy not to say that i condone what bob kraft allegedly may have done, but i'm so glad that we have a person that has the resources to fight this type of overreaching by law enforcement. >> shepard: explain why this was an overreach. >> first of all, when you take a look at the affidavit that was submitted in connection with getting the warrant, first of all, when you use a health inspector and you try to dress her off to send her in there when you're waiting outside in the back parking lot so she can
12:38 pm
do what is called a looksy inside, that in an of itself is exactly what the fourth amendment says to prevent unreasonable search and seizures. the fact that they directly sent her in there to take a look inside the premises, not because she was interested in looking or to do a health inspection, but because detective sharp solicited her to go in there to take a look. that in and of itself was an illegal search. the fact that that is included in the affidavit, every things borne out from there should be thrown out. when you look at the affidavit -- >> shepard: why is that illegal? explain why. >> okay. so law enforcement has to -- because you have a fourth amendment right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures. if you are committing a crime, the police must establish probable cause, go before a judge and get a warrant issued to search your premises. they can't circumvent that.
12:39 pm
they can't just go into your private areas without a warrant unless and in fact they have an arrest warrant and arrest you at that particular time. the fact that the jupiter police department, this detective, detective sharp, reached out to this health inspector and got her to go in on their behalf -- >> shepard: so he says we're hearing stuff. would you go in there and look and tell me what happened? is that kind of what you're talking about? >> stop right there. that's an illegal search. it was done at the direction of the jupiter police department. look no further. illegal search. everything borne out from there forward should be thrown out. then when you talk about the reliability of the information contained in the warrant, they have blogs or reviews from march of 2018. this investigation did not start until october of 2018. we're talking about six months prior just because someone posts something on line six months ago, that in no way has any reliability. you have to go and refresh that
12:40 pm
reliability. the fact, also, look, shepard, they could have used an undercover officer. they could have used a confidential informant. they could have gone into the place. they didn't need to do this. >> shepard: we'll see how it plays in court. it's good of you to be here. thanks. political chaos and cries of corruption in baltimore city. the governor and every member calling for the baltimore city mayor to resign while her lawyer claims she's too sick to even function. her lawyer says the mayor is not lucid enough to make her future about now. investigations heat up about whether she received kickbacks. katherine pugh needs to be physically sound before making a call on resigning. her staff says she's been recovering from pneumonia. yesterday the feds raided her two homes and the baltimore city
12:41 pm
hall. they're investigating whether mayor pugh used sales of her healthy holly childrens books to disguise government kickbacks, $800,000 she brought in over the years. the mayor called the deal a regrettable mistake. for a moment today, something rare in part of midtown manhattan. it was completely silent. it came during a good-bye to a hero. not a sound. firemen lowered the casket of the marine staff sergeant christopher slutman for his funeral service. slutman was one of three marines killed in afghanistan when a roadside bomb exploded there. he was a decorated new york city fireman and served for 15 years. the commissioner called slut map a protector of those in danger, a defender of those that needed

12:43 pm
graham four years ago. she said bob expected a quiet send off with his wife of 60 years already gone. but beth had other plans. she took to social media and ask everyone she knew to spread word about his funeral. thousands did. nearly 800 showed up including police, firefighters and veterans. it was a hero's good-bye with full military honors, a police escort from the funeral home to the church, a pipe and drum band, 21-gun salute and the playing of taps. at the end of the service, the folded american flag was handed to beth. >> we really valued each other. i valued his wisdom and insight into life. he had a great perspective on my situations. i really held him close to my heart. that's why i wanted to do something so special for him. he gave me so much during my four years of knowing him. >> today was not the first time that beth showed bob how special he was. she would sit with him and listen to his stories from the war. she planned his 95th birthday,
12:44 pm
arranging for other marines to visit. she said bob was humble and surprised that any would not would come see him insisting that he wasn't a big deal. he certainly would have been surprised to see those crowds today. shep? >> shepard: jacqui heinrich in new york. thank you. defense officials could be changing rules for members of the military at the border. coming up, a new plan for our troops there. plus, a different side of the opioid debate. we'll take a look at people in pain that need these pills but it's getting hard to get them. and who isn't angry after the nfl draft? this time around, it's a bunch of brides-to-be and their friends that are raging mad. and like all of new york and -- i don't know. angry. whatever. i can't believe it. that there's a lobster in our hot tub? lobster: oh, you guys. there's a jet! oh...i needed this.

12:49 pm
in the coming four days. the hope is the senate will have time to confirm shanahan before he travels to asia for a big upcoming defense conference at the end of may. the decision comes just a day after the pentagon inspector general cleared the former boeing executive of exerting any unfair influence with his former employer and his business dealings with the pentagon. the pentagon will sign off on a dhs request for 300 to 500 more troops to the border. mostly lawyers, cooks, drivers and medics. the pentagon is preparing to loosen rules allowing migrants to work with troops. the legal authorities of the troops are tightly over seen by pentagon lawyers. what will change is that u.s. troops will now be permitted to have incidental contact with migrants. for instance, if a soldier is serving food to migrants at a
12:50 pm
