"fox and friends first" starts right now. ♪ >> good morning to you. that is a really pretty shot of the nation's capital. a little foggy. maybe some steam coming off from yesterday. you are watching "fox and friends first" on thursday morning, thank you so much for starting your day with us. they were for fireworks on
capitol hill during the heated hearing on the mueller report. william barr refusing to testify today before the house after revealing the doj is investigating multiple criminal weeks. todd pyro live in studio with his intense battle with the democrats. we knew there would be some grandstanding and that type of thing but the back-and-forth is really something. >> this was cavanagh 2.0 and you are right about the steam coming off of the capital. no return for the attorney general, he will not testify before the house judiciary committee. democrats vowing to hold the hearing anyway and threatening a possible contempt citation against the nation's top prosecutor. >> i understand why he wants to avoid that scrutiny. when push comes to shove the administration cannot dictate the terms of our hearing in our hearing room. the committee will convene at 9:00. >> this after a feisty day of
testimony surrounding the letter from robert mueller which many on the left says is proof that william barr and his 4-page ceremony -- summary mischaracterize the mueller report. not so says the ag. >> i asked if he was suggesting the march 24th letter was inaccurate, he said no, but the press reporting had been in accurate. i asked what his concern was and he said his concern focused on his explanation of why he did not reach a conclusion on obstruction. he wanted more put out on that issue. he was not suggesting that we had misrepresented his report. >> reporter: despite countless accusations that william barr exonerated the president william barr echoed the following.
>> information and put it out to the public. we do so to make a decision. we felt the evidence developed by the special counsel was not sufficient to establish the president committed a crime and it would be responsible for the department to release a report without stating the department's conclusions. >> reporter: a calls from the left for william barr to resign donald trump sticking by him. >> he did a fantastic job and it is all a big hoax, this whole thing with russia, there is no collusion, no obstruction. >> bar testifying the doj has multiple criminal week investigations underway in response to unauthorized media contact by government officials during the investigation and on many shows we spoke how they are getting this information and look like the attorney general is looking at that. >> forward system out there as well. i read yesterday on twitter their comment was mueller liked the lyrics of the song but
didn't like the backseat, the music that went along with it. you liked the just of it. >> the big take away is we all thought we would be closer to an answer. lindsey graham said this is over, we are moving on. shannon: more on this to come. democrats using robert mueller's letter to accuse the attorney general taking special counsel's investigation into his own hands but alan dershowitz, harvard law school professor says at the end of the day bar is right and mueller is wrong. >> he defended very articulately his conclusion that there was no instruction of justice and the president can't obstruct justice by firing, by pardoning, by doing anything article 2 of the constitution authorizes him to do. mueller and the report take a different view of that. an interesting constitutional legal issue. the best president when barr was attorney general for george hw
bush when he hardens caspar weinberger at the special prosecutor said he did that to obstruct the investigation. he did that to prevent the culmination of the iran contra investigation but nobody suggested a president can obstruct justice by pardoning. the president can obstruct justice by firing, he is right and mueller is wrong, the president did not obstruct justice. >> the house has called on robert mueller to testify before may 23rd. in the senate, chuck schumer is demanding judiciary chair lindsey graham do the same. thousands of protesters in the streets of venezuela for a third day as the crisis intensifies. opposition leader juan guaido speaking out for the first time since calling for an uprising against nicholas maduro's regime. a new warning from the us.
>> juan guaido tells us this will be over soon but his call for a military uprising didn't pan out last night. thousands of venezuelans filled the streets of caracas overnight heating his call but security forces remain loyal to nicholas maduro. the venezuelan military used tear gas and rubber bullets to break up the crowd of mostly young men who were throwing rocks. earlier in the evening he insisted this uprising was close to being over. >> to abandon the dictator, to join the process of rebuilding venezuela. we remain united. the armed forces are listening to us and we are making progress, very close to achieving our freedom. >> reporter: what is taking so long? mike pompeo blamed russia for the delay in ousting maduro. he says the embattled leader was ready to go on tuesday but changed his mind after the russians convinced him to stay
put. russia has denied that. donald trump called last night to share his support for juan guaido as the us makes it very clear military action is possible if juan guaido -- of maduro does most of down. >> i have been watching them on the streets where people are being killed and he is doing rallies, very brave. and it is from a constitutional standpoint the way it is supposed to be. >> for now the standoff continues and it is amazing how many people are still protesting as 3 million people have already fled the country. shannon: thank you. we will have much more. in the meantime a couple headlines for you. emergent manhunt intensifying for the gunmen who shut two indiana judges.
bret jacobson, drew adams, shot in a whitecastle parking lot while attending a conference in indianapolis. and argument broke out with strangers just before the shooting. circuit court judges are now in stable condition. southern indiana community came together praying for a speedy recovery. >> we are hanging onto our faith. that's how we are getting through this. >> police do not believe the judges were targeted. the convicted terrorist who plotted an attack on the new york city subway will be sentenced today. he qualifies for life behind bars what could get a lighter sentence for cooperating with authorities. a native son of afghanistan, he pleaded guilty in 2010. he has since met with law enforcement 100 times volunteering information about al qaeda. at the time of his plea, eric holder called him, quote, one of the most serious terrorist threats to our nation since 9/11.
a new health scare as thousands of migrants are marching to the us. moment ago an ambulance leaving a shelter in mexico. officials confirming measles cases across the group. griff jenkins joins us live from mexico where the ambulance just left. >> reporter: there's quite a lot of activity as you can see behind me, two buses going into this shelter but really it was ambulances, not one but two going in here half an hour ago. we don't know why they were here. they have since left. we saw three doctors in the health deporting come out. they would not talk to us. it comes from lawmakers yesterday publicly discussing the concern that migrants may be carrying diseases confirming there are two cases of measles, syphilis and those things saying
there were no cases of ebola which was the real concern among the people on the ground. we shot this troubling video, a gentleman in a redshirt was convulsing at one point. they poured water on him and trying to get officials inside the shelter to come out and attend to him. they never did come out so the migrants put a end to a taxi and drove to a hospital. we don't know what happened with him. this comes as we went 45 miles north to one of the stops of all the caravans dating back to last october and talked to mexican folks who are fed up and tired of these caravans. here's what roberto espinoza had to say. >> they probably feel frustrated because of these people coming over to our country especially over here, having a hard time, people coming over. i'm not saying they are taking our bread for us but a lot of
people -- >> mexico's interior secretary was done playing concerns of the health risk posed by these migrants but we do know that these migrants include a global reach to countries like angola, congo, and other places where ebola has been present. there was one lawmaker in the mexican congress calling for sanitary bids on the southern border. we will try to get a firm statement from health officials when the sun comes up here. shannon: what about you and your crew? what precautions are you taking to stay safe and healthy? >> we are taking every precaution. we cannot go inside, we've not been granted access but there are busloads of federal police here in case things are out of control. we are staying in contact with all the folks here, we feel safe, thank you for asking.
shannon: appreciate it, he does a great job. the time is 12 minutes after the top of the our. democrats grilling attorney general william barr for 5 hours but the ag was cool under pressure. >> we have to stop using the, justice process as a political weapon. we have multiple criminal leak investigations underway. >> our next guest bringing down the biggest take aways and tiger woods taking his green jacket to the white house. ♪ twist and shout ♪ come on come on baby now ♪ come on and work it on out
american people? >> i'm not in the business of determining when lies are told the american people, i'm in the business of determining whether a crime is committed. we need to start using the, justice process as a political weapon. >> we have multiple criminal leak investigations underway. i don't think there is anything to have a day in court on. i think the government did not have a prosecutable case. we were surprised they were not going to reach a decision on obstruction. >> facing nonstop attacks from senate democrats about the mueller report for more than 5 hours. can you imagine? here to discuss the biggest take aways from the hearing is assistant attorney general john malcolm. thank you for joining us. what a long day it was. >> yes. your little compendium was a pretty good summary of the highlights. heather: blumenthal asked him for his notes and he said no. let's begin with the biggest take aways. one of them being where he blasted democrats for using the
criminal justice process as what you refer to as a criminal weapon. what are your thoughts on that? >> he got asked whether the president was acted appropriately, lying to the american people. senator booker said this is the new normal, this bad behavior, is that a good thing or bad thing? william barr is the head of those affirmative justice. is not the head of the terms of good manners. he's not there to determine whether the president is a nice guy were behaved appropriately. he is there to determine whether there was a conspiracy with the russians in order to interfere with the 2016 election and whether or not the president of the united states attempted to obstruct the investigation. at the end of the day he said this is a binary choice for prosecutors to make after examining the facts and that is what he was there to do, not talk about whether the president on occasion acted in a petulant manner. shannon: what did you think of his mannerisms? >> is a pretty unflappable guy.
he has been to this rodeo once before having been attorney general and served in some high-level positions. i would have had a difficult time listening to the haranguing he received from senator hirono of hawaii but william barr is aware, he is a professional and he handled himself quite well. >> he was aware there would be a lot of grandstanding going on and he talked about multiple criminal leak probes being underway. what are your thoughts on that? >> leaking is a problem in all department of government, certainly the department of justice and he made it quite clear he is going to look into these matters, taken seriously. they undermine faith in the criminal justice system that uses the department is going to be looking at whether there was a predicate to undertake this investigation in the first place and whether there was proper
factual predicate to as his words, spy on the trump campaign. those are very important issues. senator graham appears intent in looking at those issues as well. there will be more shoes to drop in the days ahead. >> he said the government did not have a prosecutable case against trump and he was surprised mueller did not come to a conclusion on obstruction. >> that is right. robert mueller, former fbi director, former us attorney, former head of the, division, that was his mandate, to investigate all these things and to make a prosecutorial decision, that binary choice if you will and i would have been surprised if he didn't reach that conclusion but since he didn't and since the department of justice is left with that binary choice, rod rosenstein and whether you agree or disagree, certainly seems they approached the issue in a sober and professional manner and reached a reasonable conclusion.

heather: a look at top headlines. william barr not testifying before the house judiciary committee say. democrats are vowing to have the hearing anyway while threatening to hold william barr in contempt of conference after is heated senate hearing over the findings, he was grilled over the letter from robert mueller which many democrats said mischaracterized the special report. the white house requesting $4.5 billion to end the border crisis, trump's administration says, providing, and processing at the border. the request comes as a new caravan marches towards the us with thousands of migrants. thousands of protesters hitting the streets of venezuela for a third day as the crisis in the
country intensifies. juan guaido speaking out for the first time, ramping up calls for a takedown of nicholas maduro's regime. unless they are willing to support the stability and prosperity of venezuela. the united states recognizes juan guaido as the elected leader of venezuela but some world power still support the maduro regime. who exactly is backing him? joining us to break it down is vice president for foreign-policy a marriage foundation, thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. we have sides that support both. let's pull up a map here. these other countries who
recognize juan guaido as the new leader. what can you tell us? >> the united states has done a remarkable job pulling together particularly in latin america, working together, colombia is absolutely key and if you think broader the european union and much of europe is solidly with the united states in support of juan guaido. shannon: some of these countries who continue to support nicholas maduro. >> right. look at russia for example, this is all part of vladimir putin's grand strategy which is he doesn't have a grand strategy but he's a meddler. he looks for gaps and weaknesses and tries to exploit the whether it is ukraine, russia and links in venezuela. they see an opportunity to annoy the united states of a support maduro and vladimir putin would be the most happy guy if the united states intervened, that
would be the happiest day for him. >> one more thing about russia. they have a major investment in venezuela's oil industry. >> they do. this is similar to syria. the difference is caracas is a long way from moscow. russia really can't do logistically and on the ground the kind of things they could do in syria. >> they sent 100 military personnel to caracas. let's focus on iran now. >> iran and all its surrogates particularly hezbollah have long had a long-established footprint in latin america and among other things that is due to a lot of their fundraising, they get involved in kernel enterprises and what kept the venezuelan government in power isn't the oil revenue but kickbacks from transnational, cartels. they use that for fundraising and also their basic intelligence operation in the western hemisphere, the united states so iran would love to see the regime stick around. shannon: why they discussed this
new flight route when airline stopped flying to venezuela. >> and they have been doing that repeatedly and use that in various steps from the regions and others to the venezuelan government. shannon: let's talk about cuba and sanctions. what are their primary interests here? >> cuba has long been the leader in organizing socialist latin america against the united states and being a proxy for other interests in the region. they are the main bad actors because they provide the boots on the ground so maduro today is surrounded by russians and cubans and venezuelan soldiers, he would probably be thrown out of the country by now. they have a deep interest here and what is funny about this is they have overreached. trump will come down, they will get more sanctions, in worse shape than when they started
under obama. this is a strategic overage. heather: 20,000 cuban troops on the ground. finally china. >> china put many billions of dollars into venezuela and use it for power and influence and exploitation of resources but the chinese are different actor. they want to preserve financial interest and don't care who is in charge and they have bigger stakes. all the actors they can least afford to but had with the united states but they did help shutdown social media and broadcast media in the country so they have been aiding venezuela. shannon: political solution to the crisis or military one? >> it is an internal solution. in the military we call it a meeting engagement.
juan guaido and maduro didn't plan on may 1st being the cataclysmic day they would clash on this. both of them entered this not knowing which way the military would go. i think it gets settled internally. i don't think there's a role for us military intervention. you cannot through the 82nd airborne into the middle of the civil war without expecting it to be a mess. >> that would be catastrophic, thanks for joining us, we appreciate it. some other headlines to bring to you at this hour. julian assange is due in court at any moment as the us fights for his extradition. the wikileaks cofounder is expected to appear via video link one day after being sentenced to 50 weeks in prison for skipping bail. he was arrested last month for conspiring with chelsea manning to break into a us government computer in 2010. he spent the last 7 years taking refuge in the ecuadorian embassy in london.

heather: joe biden boasting of his commitment to firefighters and their unions. >> international firefighters general president in my friend for a long long time, one of the guys in our union that they say, reading the dance when i started, thank you. i make no apologies. i am a union man. heather: despite a major endorsement from the top firefighters union, do rank and file members support joe biden for president? joining me is 9/11 first responder prince edward. thank you for joining us. really appreciate it. what about this? what are firefighters on the
street saying? >> the majority of them, the brothers i know and speak to are very upset about the situation. we weren't polled to find out who we backed, who we endorsed. donald trump for us has been on the ground level, backed us up through many different things, back to many first responders, not just firefighters but police officers and other first responders around the country. he had are back and that is something we feel as though the international firefighters association hasn't had that opportunity to pull any members, to get our opinion. heather: seemed surprising to a lot of folks because the president does seem to have been right there front and center in terms of supportive first responders. how does it work? you put money into the union and once it gets in their you have no control?
>> as far as being a retiree we pay union dues, local 94. they take part of that money and bring it to the internationals. we don't have any control where the money goes. heather: it was the iaf after decided to put this behind joe biden. without asking 300,000 firefighters if they agree. >> 300,000 members of the night a f after, the usa, over 11, 12,000 firefighters but nobody has been asked how we felt, who do we endorsed. we stand behind donald trump because donald trump stands behind us. heather: has anyone approached them and asked what was their reasoning?
>> not that i know -- it is political. i mean that is something i can't answer for them. i think the decision to do that was premature. they should have waited and had an idea and polled the members because union is a strong as the weakest link and that is something that should be focused on. being members on the street we are sacrificing our lives. >> you and your families. this is what donald trump had to say. he has been vocal and social media. i have done more for firefighters than this dude sucking union will ever do. i get paid 0. i wanted to bring that up because i wanted to ask who would make a better firefighter? biden trump? >> to be honest i think if
donald trump didn't become such a great builder he would have made an unbelievable firefighter. the reason i say that is in order to be a firefighter you have to run towards danger. that is what he does all-time every day since he became president, runs into danger. number 2 you can never crack under pressure. number 3 you get the job done. those are three traits donald trump has had since he has been president, been under attack ever -- every corner you turn has been under attack and for us to understand that is a major quality of a firefighter, don't ever crack under pressure. run towards danger and always get the job done. heather: thank you for joining us. >> it is honor to be on the number one show in the world. thank you for having me. thank you so much.
