3:00 am
♪ we shall be free ♪ we shall be free ♪ ed: what a wonderful time in america. we are free. and also americans waking up to the yankees first place in the al. after there last night your twins are first place in the central. pete: i do know that i do not know what day it is though. jedediah: i got to wake up to ed henry. it's tony at night and ed in the morning. pete: that's a very cool dress. jedediah: you know why you like it it's patriotic. i should have held this for fourth of july.
3:01 am
ed: armed forces day we will be celebrating all morning. who do you want to honor and thank you today? we want to get your photos at friends@foxnews.com. pete: i did a little research this morning which i what i usually end up doing before the show. ed: really? that's a first. pete: merged them all armed forces day. ed: we begin with william barr. he has been under fire from democrats and remember that the week started with him joking pushing back against nancy pelosi where are your handcuffs when he was up on capitol hill. el salvador and highlighting what the justice department is doing to crack down on ms-13. does exclusive interviews with bill hemmer. pete: really interesting interview. ed: among other things he blucketly said, quote, government power was used to spy on american citizens. that's got folks like comey
3:02 am
a little bit upset this morning. pete: jim comey the former fbi director took to twitter and had this to say this is jim comey. the a.g. should stop sliming his own department. if there are bad facts show us or search for them professionally and tell us what you found. an ag must act like the leader of the department of justice, an organization based on truth. donald trump has enough spokes people. he went on with another treat claiming the president's fbi investigation was treason, reminds me of something the russians once said a lie told often enough becomes truth. that shouldn't happen in america. who will stand up. jedediah: why is he weighing in at all? are curious? ed: is he worried. jedediah: he wants to be a political commentator he wants to be weighing in on politics left and right. aren't people tired of listening to him. this is a guy who messed up on the clinton investigation.
3:03 am
she was extremely careless but i'm thought going to call it gross negligence. i don't want there to be any criminal violations here. he messed up so royally that some people are so sired of him i don't know if people on the left have the stomach for comey's commentary. pete: i don't think he has a base or constituency out there to defend him. is out there flapping. now that bill barr said he is willing to go back and where it really started he knows he sunday fire. ed: mollie hemingway had a great tweet isn't it interesting that james comey who is being investigated by bill barr tweeting and attacking the attorney general. when the president does stuff like that it's obstruction of justice. james comey who is a little fearful is lashing out. what has him worried? why is he lashing out. here is what bill barr told our own bill hemmer. >> tried to get answer to the questions and i feel the answers have been inadequate. i also found that some of the explanations i have gotten to hang together. >> bill: why does that matter? >> if we are worried about foreign influence for the
3:04 am
very same reason, we should be worried about whether government officials abused their power and put their thumb on the scale. i'm not saying that happened, but i'm saying that we have to look at that. >> bill: james comey has a lot to say about you. what do you think of him? >> i have noticed one of the talking points these days is always a tragedy barr is losing his reputation or his legacy is being continuinged becaustingedbecause of his serv. i don't think people are concerned about my legacy. pete: this guy doesn't care. and he doesn't care about his critics. he wants to get to the bottom of it. it's very refreshing to see someone in such a senior position be that candid. jedediah: he shouldn't care. he shouldn't care at all. so many people surrounding him that do care. they care about the court of public opinion. is he coming out and saying i don't care what you think of me. i'm not here for the court of public opinion. i'm here to figure out why this investigation was done if the first place.
3:05 am
i'm here to investigate the investigators to see what kind of spying was going on, was it merited? he wants questions answered. like the only guy on the whole scene looking for answers and doesn't care what the media or we have to say about it. pete: he is also fair to people. bob mueller wasn't charged to looking into the dossier his job was there collusion and obstructions russia's interference in our elections. he stayed right there. now it's our job to looking at the poison tree the investigation and what happened? ed: he doesn't care what the critics say he is going to investigate this. sol wisenburg rod to his defense last night. he said what comey said in his tweet is a total lie. watch. >> the attorney general did not slime his own department. the attorney general said that if government officials acting improperly and abused their power and put their thumb on the scale. that's something that everybody should know about. last week i went to rod
3:06 am
rosenstein's farewell at the department of justice christopher wray was there. bill barr was there. rosenstein was there jeff sessions was there does that sound like somebody sliming his own department? that's a complete lie. bill barr has not said one thing since he became attorney general to slime his own department. he had they'd picture that sol wisenburg is talking about. the former attorney general who didn't seem to have the same spine that barr now has to say, look, i don't care about the critics, i'm going to get to the truth. jedediah: isn't it the amount of controversy that barr has stirred by saying listen, i don't know exactly what happened. i just want to find out what happened. just want to look into it. the idea of him saying let's look into it has stirred so much trouble on the left they can't bear the idea this guy wants to get to the bottom of the facts the same line he bottom lined this mueller report this is the actual case. let's get through the novel. that bottom line bothers
3:07 am
people. facts are stubborn for some people. pete: they haven't been covering it for some time. forced to report on it. we get sick every once in a while talking about 2017 again and again. fast forward to 2019. we know there is a crisis at the border. we know it's not manufactured. one of the steps they are having to take is because they are so overwhelmed with asylum claims at the border we are getting information we heard it might happen. now it is happening that they are flying migrants from the border to other locations in order to get them processed more quickly. ed: florida and maybe happening in san diego as well to deal with the crush of migrants coming across. look at the numbers since october 1st, nearly 520,000 people have been apprehended at the border. the highest in a decade. to pete's point of a moment ago remember just weeks, a couple months ago democrats were still saying this was a manufactured crisis. now you can see, in fact, based on those numbers alone, regardless of your political affiliation, this is real problem.
3:08 am
call it crisis, whatever you want to say. there is a real problem at the southern border. you have not just republicans but democrats saying why are these migrants being flown to our state? they have to do something with them. they don't have enough detention centers to deal with them as they come across trying to claim asylum. jedediah: ron desantis criticizing the plan to send illegals to florida. >> we cannot accommodate in florida just dumping unlawful migrants into our state. i think it will tax our resources. the schools, the healthcare, law enforcement, state agencies. pete: that's a good way to put it unlawful migrants. because they are trying to comply with how long they have held before their release, hundreds of thousands of folks and family units have been released pending a date when they are supposed to come back and report based on how they adjudicate their islam them
3:09 am
claim. why would you want more illegal migrants putting strange on your state. steve: he does support them on immigration approach saying look i'm on the receiving end of the migrants now being sent from either the border near texas or arizona across the country to florida. but there are also democratic officials in places like palm beach county saying we can't deal with this. what is going on here. yet, there are democrats in congress like maxine waters who continue to lash out at the president, call his policies, call him, you know, the president himself a racist just for coming out this week and pushing for a broader immigration reform plan to deal with it. local democrats in places like florida saying yeah there is a problem we need to deal with. and national democrats like maxine waters saying stuff like. this well, you know, this business about you must speak english we are going to give you points for speaking english and we don't want poor people. we only want those people who are earning substantial
3:10 am
wages already. all of those things are not keeping in step with the way that we treat human beings. and even the fact that, you know, he talk about chain migration or when you are able to help others in the family come, he is going to limit that i think some of those policies are racist. pete: and i think all of it is racist. comes down to the argument they ultimately make. i thought the rollout of this immigration plan from this white house was actually very good. i think it's something people can connect to. not all family members can come, a limited subset. we want you to learn english and take a civics test that's important to the fabric of our country. we think having skills is a good thing for people to come in. they will didn't reduce the amount of legal immigration which some conservatives were critical of. more or less stays same. it's a responsible plan the democrats can't like it -- ed: "the washington post" has he an editorial article out this morning saying it's
3:11 am
a good first step to get democrats to the table and have negotiations. how do you get democrats to the table when some of their leaders like maxine waters say racist no matter what. jedediah: trump is not saying anything about race. what is her implication. maxine are you implying people who are high skilled workers couldn't possibly be of certain races? trump is not saying that at all. pete: that's a good point. j. jedediah: he said we care about bringing the best and brightest. you are the one making it about race. ed: don't forget your photos of armed forces day. foxnews.com. jedediah: we will turn to your headlines. airlines flying over the pergs gulf new england among ten with iran. they warn plane could say experience interfeerns with navigation and communication systems. tensions have been rising since the u.s. accused iran of threatening its forces. a former college football star hailed a hero for

3:16 am
ed: fox news town hall sunday night 2020 democratic hopeful pete buttigieg releasing his policy platform to try and separate himself from the pack. so what's in the plan and are his policies any different from those of his
3:17 am
democratic rivals? let's bring in radio talk show host tony cat. he is on the ground in indiana. he knows about it. good to see you. >> good to see you. ed: pete buttigieg has tried to say as the mayor of south bend. plans for the nation he is trying to say is he a different kind of democratic. is that true? >> it's true that he says he is a different kind of democrat. that's totally true. but policywise, he is not. and we have known this now for a good long time. but you've got to understand town hall you guys are doing tomorrow with pete buttigieg that causes him to release the policy proposals that he did just yesterday. when elizabeth warren said she will never come on fox news, that was a signal to everybody else that fox news may not be acceptable. and what pete buttigieg had to do was tell his base oh, no, no, no; i'm treely with you. look at all the things i believe just like elizabeth warren and bernie sanders and kamala harris. ed: he is trying to reassure the left.
3:18 am
medicare for all one thing in policy plan. a commission to propose reparation policies. implement the green new deal, gun control regulations, and replace the electoral college with a straight popular vote. tony, that sounds like the makings of not a different kind of diplomat. maybe aoc policies, elizabeth warren policies with maybe a little bit of buffing on it. >> no, no. it is. remember, he is the same old, same old. he has a really good wrapper. he comes across extremely well. he has done incredibly good job managing persona on the campaign trail. he has some good people around him that have been able to do this as well. when you look at policy right from the very beginning, when you look at his identity politics, his #never pence strategy always going after the vice president. even recently going after the president. the president said i have no problem with pete buttigieg being married and pete buttigieg said that's not good enough because if you are okay with it, you might be human and we can't have you being human. these identity politics
3:19 am
things are just like the rest of the field. ed: let's talk about that. what is the feeling there? you are in indiana and we are not. you are referring to an interview that the president of the united states did with our own steve hilton, that will also be airing on sunday night the president said i don't care that he is gay. his husband is out on the campaign trail. this is good for america, essentially and, yet, as you point out, pete buttigieg on the other side has been essentially attacking mike pence's faith and his christian faith. why the dichotomy there? >> well, the never pence strategy is for him to be able to say i'm the moral one and it's mike pence's policies are the im -- that are immoral. but he is also, pete buttigieg in favor of the equality act. and when you take a look at that that's not about allowing people to be free. it's about suppressing other people. if the religious freedom rest tore ration act in indiana was wrong. the equality act is equally as wrong. we are covered by the constitution. that should be enough. ed: last question though why is it that fowj his credit
3:20 am
seems to be breaking through a lot of other rank and file democrats. is he higher in at love these polls than people expected. >> he doesn't come across as a total jerk. i mean plan plain and simple. towards the vice president he has been a jerk. in the main he is cool, calm, collected. i thinks which acken his husband does him a tremendous service there on the campaign trail. but slowly but surely the veneer is cracking and we are all starting to see it. ed: everyone will get to see it and let him lay out his policies in the fox news town hall sunday night here. tony katz i appreciate you coming in. >> see you later. ed: one former clinton white house staff says congress needs to get over the mueller report and pay attention to our nation's opioid epidemic. he explains his plan to fix it. he has a personal connection that you need to hear about next. well, that's my job.

ed: good morning again. quick headlines, missouri's governor says he will sign the state's new abortion bill now sitting on his desk. the legislation will ban abortions after eight weeks there are exceptions for medical emergencies but not for pregnancies that result from rape or incest. louisiana democratic governor is breaking with his party signaling plans to sign his state's new heart beat bill. the bill still has to get through the state house though. the legislation bans abortions after six weeks when a baby's heart beat is normally detected. pete? pete: love it. thanks, ed. in a new op-ed, one former clinton white house staff says congress needs to get over the mueller report. and pay attention to our nation's opioid epidemic. jedediah: ryan hampton once homeless and addicted to heroin. he is american fix inside the opioid crisis and how to fix it. thanks for being here, ryan.
3:25 am
>> good morning, thanks for having me. jedediah: can you tell us about your story of addiction particularly heroin and how that's impacted your passion about this particular issue? >> absolutely. as you mentioned, i once was a clinton white house staff. i had worked in community organizing. i had this up and coming career in political organizing, community organizing. and the then as a result of a prescription and being cut off on it i turned to heroin and ended up homeless on the streets of los angeles, looking for help and having a nightmare of my own story trying to find treatment, trying to find recovery. and since getting into recovery in 2014, i just celebrated four years in recovery this past february. i have lost over two dozen friends, people i love, people i care about, people in my community to preventable drug overdoses. that's fueled my passion. to kind of put aside being a democrat or republican or party and work towards solutions to the addiction
3:26 am
crisis. it is ravaging our community. it's the worst public health crisis we have seen in a generation. 200 americans a day, a lot of people i know and care about are being lost to these preventible overdoses. pete: we have a statistic, almost 50,000 deaths to opioid overdoses in 2017 alone. you mentioned close to 200 a day. this is a problem. no doubt about it. your foxnews.com op-ed is excellent. did you go at the politics saying this endless talk about russia and the mueller report, it's distracting us from our ability to address stuff like. this look. i think, you know, nibble who knows me to see me on fox news and to say that, might take a step back and, look, i have my own personal opinions and feelings about the mueller report. i think every single american does. but the bottom line is where we are today, it is paralyzing this country. this is paralyzing our opportunity and a lot of the good bipartisan will that was built towards ending this epidemic.
3:27 am
i didn't just wake up and say i'm going to write this and put this on fox news. there is an important story i need to say. i have been working with members of congress, chairman of committees in the senate and in the house for now over two and a half years. we have worked together to craft some very progressive legislation that the president has signed. we have gotten funding to communities. we were really taking a step forward. now, let me ask you this, in the last seven weeks, i have been trying to work with these same members of congress on some new innovative approaches that communities are backing that would increase block funding for recovery support services. look at things like harm reduction. recovery tax credits. i can't get as much as a returned phone call from these members of congress let alone their staff. everyone is so caught up in the mueller report. i know how polarizing it is, but at the end of the day, and, look, i'm not here to make a determination on what congress should be doing, but what i am qualified to do as someone who is on the front lines of this crisis, is say that there is a real
3:28 am
human cost to these decisions. we have got to get outside the beltway and start getting back to main street u.s.a. to communities like my own and focusing on issues that matter to me. look, the outcome of what happens with congress in the mueller report is not going to make one difference for the mom or the dad who has to go identify their child's body today, right? and on that toe tag it doesn't ask you how you feel about the mueller report or even if you are a republican or a democrat. and i think that americans are going to take this issue to the electorate, to the ballot box in 2020. i know that i am. look, i don't know if i'm going to support the president. i probably won't. i mean, that's apparent. but i can't in good conscious say that this is good for our national dialogue and national conversation. pete: only so much capital and time to be had on the calendar. >> it's turned into political theater. jedediah: thank you for sharing your personal story. they make all the
3:29 am
difference. hopefully democrats are listening to you. we have heard from a lot of democratic voters feel issues that are important are being ignored at the expense of talking about mueller and the mueller report talking points all the time. we appreciate you coming on here. pete: thank you very much for your time. jedediah: very much. >> thank you. pete: summer is almost here, i would say it's here. we are helping you prepare for the ultimate road trip. jedediah: kurt the cyberguy is here with the rv of rvs. look at that ♪ ♪ introducing... smartdogs. the first dogs trained to train humans. stopping drivers from: liking. selfie-ing. and whatever this is. available to the public... never. smartdogs are not the answer. but geico has a simple tip. turn on "do not disturb while driving" mode. brought to you by geico.

3:47 am
office to politically attack then candidate trump and then, obviously, president trump. so his conduct under criminal investigation are a at least ought to be by mr. barr, maybe mr. durham up in connecticut. remember, he stole fbi records concerning president trump, leaked them illegally to the "new york times" in order to get mueller appointed. he put he managed the process as fbi director. signed off on fake dossier that even mr. mueller couldn't give credibility. every time the dossier is mentioned in the mueller report, he calls it unverified. so, mr. comey is someone who ought to be under investigation. and, frankly, ruin the credibility of the fbi with the help of loretta lynch, the justice department and so you have someone who is confident and a truth teller. that's the type of person a
3:48 am
political hack like comey. pete: narrative for comey. he has real liability based on the investigations ongoing about him? >> sure. he is already under investigation over his handling of those fbi memos he stole from the fbi about president trump. he took president trump's fbi files and then leaked them. pete: um-huh. >> we already know there is an investigation or at least it's supposed to be an investigation going on. and now there is a broader investigation thanks to mr. barr coming on as attorney general. we don't know what's going to happen with the ig report that is looking at the fisa abuses. pete: that's inspector horowitz. bill barr is looking into the investigators. how much power will he have? how deep with this scope go? >> well, the u.s. attorney,
3:49 am
so he has access to grand juries if he needs them. i think he needs to -- we need to get past this idea that we are going to do an administrative review of these issue and bring witnesses before grand juries. so, if it's going to be another unioner, it would be a disappointment. durham seems the type of guy who has a record looking at significant government corruption investigations. so it's another reassuring move by the attorney general. let me just say one more thing about mr. comey. isn't it interesting how comey's comments echo the democratic talking points attacking barr? just proving how political an fbi director he was. pete: yeah. >> in an age where we kind of want the fbi director to be a lawman not a politician. pete: if you hear what his subordinates were writing and saying some of the text messages. someone created a culture where stuff like that was acceptable. >> his top lawyer was coordinating with the clinton campaign lawyers,

4:03 am
the government was doing during that period. if we're worried about foreign influence for the very same reason, we should be worried about whether government officials abused their power and put their thumb on the scale. and so, i'm not saying that happened, but i'm saying that we have to look at that i think if i had been falsely accused, i would be comfortable saying it was a witch-hunt. jedediah: so he comes out and he makes what to me very benign statement saying, listen, i don't know what happened. we should look into it. of course, the media outraged immediately calling him a conspiracy theorist. attacking him. take a listen. >> mr. barr seems to be contempt with chumming the waters of conspiracy. witch-hunt. phrase clearly designed to light up the pleasure centers in president trump's brain. as if he is taking his cues from the president's talking points on the russia investigation, which of course, include what the president and his allies have dubbed the dirty dossier. >> the attorney general of the united states fueling

republican president president bush now all of a sudden you look at this and william barr is saying timeout back in 2016 this fisa court which is supposed to be use sod we can surveil terrorists, that's the real goal there. pete: exactly. ed: being used to surveil carter page and maybe other trump officials at the very least mainstream media should we look at this and get some answers and if bill barr is wrong he will be embarrassed obviously and rightly. so the attorney general of the united states i submit to you is not going to go out on a limb under oath before congress and now to bill hemmer and others and say there was spying by government officials. he is ♪ going to say that willy-nilly. he was attorney general under bush 41. he didn't need this job. he was not a trump supporter. this is not somebody who was angling for the job. so it's absurd to all of us to say oh we don't care about these getting these answers. pete: and there was unmasking and leaking. the hallmark, you used the phrase mainstream media. i don't use that anymore. there is no mainstream

media. there isn't. they are all left wingers. what is the mainstream. i think fox is mainstream and our reporters is mainstream and our reporters are mainstream. yet, they would never call us that. jedediah: journalists live in a one. you look at the stats. come out of liberal academia. their objectivity to them they look at each other we are are objective journalists. very few stand out. they have forgotten true objectivity means objectivity. william barr responded to the criticism on the left and great response in my opinion. take a listen. >> laughable charge, it's being used to discredit me partly because they may be concerned about the outcome of a review of what happened during the election. obviously, you can look at the face of my testimony and see on its face that there is nothing inaccurate about it. >> bill: democrats will say is that you are spinning on behalf of the president. were you spinning for the white house to buy some time. >> no, i wasn't.
4:07 am
i think what they really are perhaps annoyed about is that they didn't have an opportunity to spin and that the fundamental findings of the report were were out there for everybody to see and they were not in a position to spin. jed yesterday this guy is brilliant contrast to mueller. weighs so worried about reports oh the media is representing it and it's going to be misleading. they are going to feel this way or that way. is he so concerned about that court of public opinion. this guy doesn't care at all. is he like listen, i don't care what you think of me. i'm here to do a job. i don't care. it's great. pete: i agree with you completely. i think trump supporters didn't know what they would get in bill barr. he has been in the swamp with other durations. he sounds like a guile that has seen all the shades and aspects of washington and just fed up. to your point, i.d., i didn't need. this i didn't need this job. so how about i call all the b.s. and i don't care what you think and i call balls and strikes?

something was not right. what happened is that the police in plano, texas outside of dallas had another victim that actually survived the attack. and was able to give enough detail that they put chemirmir under surveillance and literally saw him put a jewelry box in a dumpster at his apartment. and they retrieved the box and had a name and address in it and they went to that address to do a welfare check and sure enough there was a deceased victim. pete: oh, wow. this billie chemirmir who is charged with the killings was in the country illegally. was there any part of his process that was missed? >> no, i don't think that that's really the problem. you know, the victim's

4:26 am
student potential. i think they need to do away with it and personal interviews and having worked in schools for years. could this be in response to the incredible amount of privilege that you have seen with felicity huffman and lori loughlin and the payoff and beyond that just the amount of money that goes into tutoring these kids, if parents can afford it. i mean, thousands upon thousands of dollars in sat tutoring that people are looking at this system and saying well, hold on a second. if those kids hadn't had that privilege of being able to afford that would they have been in the same position as these other kids coming out of homes and families and school districts that cannot level up that way? is this a means where people are at least trying to address that in equity? >> you know, there is always good intentions. once again, you are talking about policies that are being created that have this idea we are going to try to level the playing field. you know, you have people coming out of the same home. children coming out of the same womb who are unequal.

4:46 am
one, this has become the go to line for everything that the democrats don't like. we clearly have a crisis at the southern border. i think any objective person with their eyes open can see it. we have seen upwards of 590% increase of people coming over the southern border. at one point in april at the southwest border we had 109,000 people come over. we have got to do something about it. most of the people coming over the border who are claiming asylum are what they call economic migrants. coming here because they want a better life. something that i think all of us can understand but we have a legal way to do that. to apply for citizenship, to apply for certain visas, to come here legally, which is what most other immigrants did, stood in line, waited and did it properly, legally. what the president has put forward is what a lot of other countries do is look at merit. what does the country need? what is the system to make sure we do it in a way that properly grows the country and isn't a free for all. so, if maxine waters has a problem with the president's
4:47 am
problem number one she needs to acknowledge the crisis at our southern border and the current system creates by this magnet that allow people to come into the country, claim asylum and disappear into the country. secondly she should come up with a plan. right now the president is leading on this and she is not. pete: sean to jedediah's point what's the imply case? can you can't speak english somehow that's that has a factor on race? want skills. certain races would have them or wouldn't have them? is she just saying i believe this president is a racist only thing he does is the same? >> unfortunately i don't know what she thinks. i believe this is sort of the go to line for every democrat. regardless of the policy. it's got to be based in race. it's just silly. like i said she is equally accusing a several countries that we have strong relationships with of being in the same. most other countries that we do business with have a very similar immigration policy based on merit or at least in part based on merit.
4:48 am
so, this has become just a go-to talking point. it's a dog whistle to the left to say oppose this because it doesn't -- because we on the left don't like anything that donald trump puts forward. but the reality is that it has grown hollow. they throw this line out every time. i think, you know, a few years ago it might have rung a little deeper, now it's literally whether it's tax policy, immigration policy, regulations it's like whether. everything is racist in the democratic party. ed: real quick we have about 30 seconds. all fair points democratic rhetoric probably overdone. there is a crisis at the border that democrats didn't want to admit. to say and the president is putting forth a merit based system that a lot of our allies do. you are all right about that. why aren't republicans getting behind this plan? if it's so good why didn't even mitch mcconnell put out a lukewarm statement about it. >> well, from what i can tell part of it is process. the way the white house rolled this out i don't think a lot of people were read in according to press reports as to what happened. i think as they hear more about the plan, as the
4:49 am
president puts forward and his team puts forward the way in which they see this getting done, i think you will see more and more republicans get on board. the other thing is politically speaking as we head into an election year with the house controlled by nancy pelosi and the democrats, i think a lot of folks, especially who are up for re-election or in tough races are saying do i really want to go out on a limb on something that nancy pelosi is calling dead on arrival. ed: sean spicer. thanks for coming in. good luck with the camping trip. pete: send us a photo friends@foxnews.com. ed: we will put that out. >> i will. ed: coming off master's win tiger woods missed the mark at the pga championship didn't make the cut out by one stroke. jedediah: what this means for tiger's career. pete: good morning. ♪ ♪ ♪ limu emu & doug mmm, exactly! liberty mutual customizes your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need. nice! but uh, what's up with your partner? oh! we just spend all day telling everyone how we customize car insurance

of all of that comes at the same time that there we are waiting for the justice department inspector general report that's going to take a sharp look at james comey and others at the fbi. pete: instead of tweeting a picture of him gazing off into a sun set which philosopher james comey has been known to do recently, he took to twitter and gland about the attorney general. here is james comey yesterday saying the ag should stop sliming his own department. if there are bad facts search and tell us what you found and a.g. must act like the leader of the department of justice an organization based on truth. donald trump has enough spokesperson. jedediah: the president claiming the fbi's investigation was treason reminds me that a russian once said a lie told often enough becomes the truth. that shouldn't happen in america. who will stand up? of course we have all been waiting with baited breath to hear what james comey had to say. that was a photo of him wandering in the forest. james comey the philosopher, the political commentator, the person who fact checked

the president. all been waiting. he thinks everybody is waiting. ed: that's all funny. i want to make a serious point. when the president of the united states was mad what he calls the witch-hunt with the mueller investigation and was attacking then attorney general jeff sessions and was going after mueller and his investigators, his critics screamed obstruction of justice. is he being investigated he is lashing out. that must be on destruction of justice. we have seen that play out in section 2 of the mueller report. now you have james comey. that man is under investigation by the justice department inspector general and by out attorney general who we will hear from in a minute. potentially a criminal investigation about how the whole russia investigation started. and now what is he doing? he is going on twitter like the president lashing out, basically attacking the people like bill barr who are now investigating him. is that obstruction of justice? turned around on him. pete: good question. jedediah: let's remind everyone what the fuss is all about. here is a.g. bill barr talking about investigating the investigators with
5:04 am
"america's newsroom." take a listen. >> trying to get answers to the questions and i found that a lot of the answers have been inadequate and i have also found that some of the explanations i have gotten don't hang together. >> bill: why does that matter? >> if we are worried about foreign influence for the very same reason we should be worried about whether government officials abused their power and put their thumb on the scale. i'm not saying that happened. but i'm saying that we have to look at that. >> bill: james comey has a lot to say about you. what do you think of him? >> well, i have noticed one of the talking points these days is always a tragedy, barr is losing his reputation or his legacy is being tinged because of his service in this administration. i don't think those people are really concerned about my legacy. ed: see a man there who could care less about the critics. doesn't care about the constitution and defense attorney for the president. instead, he pushed back repeatedly in that interview with our colleague bill
5:05 am
hemmer in saying no, i'm just speaking my mind, fog the constitution and somebody who has done this job before in the bush 41 administration not a trump insider who didn't need to come back in to government service but saw a chance here to serve his country and is doing that and could care less about what critics say. jedediah: what's so controversial again? just remind me? he is saying i'm not saying this happened. i'm saying we have to look into it. heaven forbid somebody actually do their job and not care about the court of public opinion and not care about what the media has to say about it and say look i want to investigate how this whole investigation started. what kind of spying was happening? what kind of justification for it. this guy is just looking for answers and being criminalized for it. pete: bill barr is living rent free and enjoying it. simply say going big, powerful people abuse their positions against u.s. citizens, i want to know about that. ed: big powerful people like james comey signed off on the dossier to go to the fisa court and basically get the warrants to surveil carter page and get their
5:06 am
wedge into the trump campaign. well, tom fitton from judicial watch was on earlier in the week saying this is why james comey is lashing out. he is getting nervous. watch. >> mr. comey has significant potential criminal liability over his misconduct. remember, he stole fbi records concerning president trump, leaked them illegally to the "new york times" in order to get mueller appointed. he put -- he managed the whole fisa process as fbi director. signed off on that fake dossier. broader investigation thanks to mr. barr. so you have someone who is competent and a truth teller and that's the type of person person, a political hack like comey hates. pete: can you imagine if horowitz comes back and says here are the two or three criminal referrals i'm going to make to the former fbi director. he has he the power to do it. a guy like james comey is not out of the woods. ed: horowitz report knocked

5:08 am
state. i think it will tax our resources. the schools, the healthcare, law enforcement, state agencies. >> the plan would supply up to 1,000 migrants a month to northern and coastal cities including two florida counties palm beach and broward county. late fry that i can plan was put on hold. governor desantis planned to speak to president trump about the issue. forever months been busing migrant families mostly from guatemala, honduras and el salvador to southern california or el paso, texas. the agency said the number of people apprehended at the border since october 1st was nearly 520,000. the highest in a decade will. in the past week there was an average of 4500 arrests a day. border patrol officials have felonflown 1,000 migrant seekers to del rio, texas. each contracted flight costs between 20 to $65,000 and can carry about 135 people.
5:09 am
pete: wow. thank you, jennifer. for being here. ed: you had democrats saying this is a manufactured crisis at the border that finally got broken down once some democrats like jeh johnson had the courage to step forward no, actually it's a real crisis. okay? and then you have the fact that some democrats in palm beach county like she mentioned yesterday are out there we can't take these migrants how are we going to handle this? we want to help as a country. in our community all of a sudden if it's in your backyard can't handle it. reminded of cher a couple weeks back saying wait, you can't bus migrants to l.a. we already have too many homeless people in l.a. and they're veterans. and the president's allies were saying that's sort of the point that we already have our own problem. now we are taking on even more new problems. when it's in your backyard. whether you are a democrat or you are a republican like ron desantis you are saying hey, hey, what are we going to do about this. pete: becoming every state is a border state. you start to feel what they are feeling. you start to realize the
5:10 am
outrage they have had that a lot of people don't connect with. but when it starts to come to you. ed: pit pressure on congress. democrats and republicans do something. jedediah: some of these democrats and republicans are late to the party issue unfortunately. this has been going on for a long time. you see the culmination and 4500 arrest as day. this is an issue that has been building and building and building and final at a breaking pointed and democrats chose to ignore it temporarily thinking they were going to get away with it until they realize the severity and exposure and people in their own party celebrities and whatnot hold on a second now they have accountability. it's going to be a key issue. pete: establishment republicans were late to the party the first two years. the president wanted to address this when he had the political capital to do it. paul ryan and others said we have other priorities. here we are democrats aren't going to work with imh. ed: "the washington post" editorial page the president's plan he unveiled this week is a good first step. not the whole deal. pete: a real proposal. ed: see if it actually moves forward. jedediah: do something. that's right.

where do you stand on the iraq war? where do you stand on racial justice which is my most important issue? i will say that senator harris did call out joe biden on last week with saying that mass incarceration that the crime bill did contribute to mass incarceration. good for her on that. i think all of the candidates have pretty much taken a weaker position and i look forward to getting a little bit stronger during the debate. ed: big picture right now axios had a piece saying that the biden strategy is to take this national lead and basically turn it in early on. mocked president trump and have what they call an air of inevident tbilitiability. reading where have i heard that before. clinton in 2016. democrats said no, no, it's her turn. let's just push this through. could your parity be making the same mistake with biden? >> yeah. well what happened with 2016 is obviously that didn't work. you know, if the candidates don't want to hold each other accountable and do the vetting you can rest assured that the american people

5:34 am
is that she earlier they were talking about rape and incest. and then when meghan mccain brought up partial birth abortion they said well, that's rare, that's the exception. well so is rape and incest. so we can -- if we are going to discuss the rape and incest, we can discuss partial birth abortion and, frankly, if you have ever seen it, i have online, it's gruesome. and if you believe in the humanity of a fetus, if you believe in human life and that every one of them have dignity, it doesn't matter what the circumstances of that conception are. that is a human. that is a baby. rachel: most people in the country oppose late-term abortion. i'm interested in her strategy here. is she afraid to enrage the democratic primary voters who she fears will support late-term abortion? because, in a general election, or moving forward, most of the country is saying even those who are pro-choice have a problem with abortion late stage like that. >> she is actually trying to avoid late-term abortion. if you notice -- everybody
5:35 am
who hasn't seen this clip should see it. meg began mccain did a fantastic job. what she did in there is she started out by saying these guys did this. these guys in georgia and alabama voted for this. ignoring the fact that first of all the governor is a woman and a lot of women, a lot of pro-life women put those guys in office. and what this is an effort to erase, eliminate conservative, pro-life women from the public square to just erase us as if we don't count, as if we are not women because we have a different opinion than she does on abortion. and that's why i think it's really important that someone like meghan mccain is on a show like that showing that we exist and we are 50% of the population and we are 50% of the people's opinions on abortion. and you are absolutely right. 80% of americans are opposed to partial birth abortion and thanks, not just to the mistakes made by governor

5:46 am
24-year-olds favored a, quote, mostly socialist economic model compared to just 27% of older respondents. why is socialism seemingly more popular with young people? jedediah: conner free market think tank tackled this topic for new op-ed fox business. he joins us now. why is socialism so appealing to millennials as a concept? >> good morning and great to be with you the running jokes with millennials a lot of them still living in mom's basement and still in the home. for a lot of them being proposed these policies where they can live off of the taxpayer's basement live in there for quite a while it's very alluring and part of the challenge here is increasingly the schools are not teaching some of the ramifications of what socialist systems and policies entail. they are hearing benefits. they are hearing about free college and free healthcare and free x, y, and z. but they lack the intellectual understanding
5:47 am
of what these policies actually entail. so they see it as kind of this excellent tradeoff where i can get a bunch of free stuff they don't really understand what that actually means. pete: conner, you got to the heart of it when you get to econ there is no free lunch. our middle schools and high schools when they talk about basic economics are teachers reinforcing the system in which we live or pedaling new ideas attractive to young minds? >> it's actually really tough. the public school system itself is a socialist system, right? this is redistribution. this is forcing everyone to pay for the benefit of a few. and so you can't really expect a system like that to teach the dangers of itself. and to be very fair about a free market system which we really don't have in education. that's all the more reason why parents need to step up and fill that void them selves and many struggle to do so because they themselves weren't really taught the intricacies of this system. we have two things going on here in the education system. we have sins of commission
5:48 am
and sins of omission. so commission is like sometimes they have college professors or teachers teaching the virtues of socialism or teaching, you know, from their own bias why a free market capitalism is bad. that's commission. more often what we see though is the college system is sins of omission. simply not teaching the dangers of socialism. not pointing to venezuela andz north korea and historic examples where we see these systems on a large scale not having shared prosperity which the vision of bernie sanders and alexandria ocasio-cortez, but in reality shared poverty. omission. the system is not teaching young adults. they then become voters and don't understand because they have never been exposed to those ideas. jedediah: something not talked about a lot is a loss of personal freedom and decision-making. young people don't like being told what to do by anyone, by their parents, by their superiors, by their government. is that what is told and talked about more this is a basic concept? millennials really start to think about this issue differently. >> that's exactly right. there is a challenge here
5:49 am
but there is also an opportunity. because, what i found is that most millennials and genz their antipathy towards capitalism is not really against capitalism. it's against crony capitalism. they are seeing bank bailouts and so-called 1%. they grew one rosy idea what capitalism is. they haven't been told and taught that free market capitalism around the world lifted people out of poverty substantial degree over the decades. if they had a true understanding of what free market is not the corrupt capitalist version we would see those poll numbers shift. that's why among the older generation those who have seen historical examples and see what socialist regimes around the country arched around the world have done that's when i think we see things. pete: capitalism is free markets and do the same thing with socialism government run economics. young people don't want government running much of our life let alone the

6:07 am
protection officials held a conference call last night and confirmed the trump adminitration is weighing whether to fly asylum seekers who come to the southern u.s. border to cities across the country to have their claims processed by cbp, which says its agents are overwhelmed at the border. the announcement came friday and an alarmed response from governors like governor ron desantis who says his state of florida cannot be used as a temporary hub for migrants. >> we cannot accommodate in florida this dumping the unlawful migrants into our state i think it'll tax our resources, the schools, the healthcare, law enforcement, state agencies. reporter: the plan was to fly up to 1,000 migrants a month to northern and coastal cities including two florida counties, palm beach and broward county. late friday that plan was put on hold. governor ron desantis said he planned to speak to president trump about the issue. for months immigration authorities have been busing migrant families mostly from
6:08 am
guatemala, honduras and el salvador to southern california and el paso, texas. the number of people apprehended at the border since october 1 was nearly 520,000, the highest in a decade. in the past week there was an average of 4,500 arrests a day. border patrol officials have flown nearly 1,000 migrant asylum seekers to san diego and texas since last friday. each private contracted flight costs between 20 to $65,000 and can carry about 135 people. back to you. ed: thank you, jennifer. pete: stay with us for a second with your vast pentagon experience and knowledge of naval strategy, whose going to win the kayaking race between ed and ion the show? ed: jennifer is my friend. keep that in mind. reporter: i believe it's armed forces day so let's leave it at that. ed: pete is a veteran boy. pete: well played thank you very much. jedediah: thanks, well done. ed: one of my friends just text ed me if all else fails tip

6:14 am
jedediah: missouri lawmakers passing a bill that would ban abortions at eight weeks of pregnancy and is expected to be signed into law. missouri now just one of the many states acting against abortion, so where do all the states now stand? here to break it down is allison howard, director at live action, a pro-life non-profit group thank you so much for being here so we'll go through this. we're going to take a look first the state has passed abortion restrictions. >> absolutely so these states pass a heartbeat bill, fetal heartbeat or an outright ban, which you see in alabama and we'll support any law that protects children. this is the logical loving conclusion of acknowledging what's happening in prenatal development, there's life in the womb. these states are stepping up not playing small ball any more.
6:15 am
jedediah: we'll go flew these states so missouri stands for the unborn act. >> absolutely this is an eight week bill. at eight weeks this baby has legs beings arms, a heartbeat and they're acknowledging that and this does not have a rape incest exception. let's talk about that. these exceptions are not needed. if you believe and you know that there's a life in that womb, then you protect them all. your worth, identity, humanity has nothing to do with your conception. jedediah: controversial nonetheless though. >> it is. jedediah: then we have the georgia life act, this has been talked about quite a bit. >> georgia is another heartbeat bill so that's at six weeks it's detected saying look, if society acknowledges life, surely we can acknowledge life when it begins so that's what heartbeat bills are doing in georgia, they acknowledge this person, this child is a person, because roe v. wade, if you can acknowledge personhood of that child, the
6:16 am
14th amendment has to defend that child. jedediah: what about exceptions on this one. >> exceptions here, look, deals with extreme cases for the mother but rape incest is again if you know there's life in there you've got to defend it all. jedediah: okay let's keep going through. >> now we have states expanding abortion laws. jedediah: of course new york which we're in right now so interesting to parallel the states that are saying, you know , these abortion laws need to be changed in favor of life and those saying hold on a second, no, we need to do more in the direction of pro-choice and look at that. interesting dynamic of the contrast we saw between the screen we had before and this one. >> right and as we get closer to reconsidering roe, you'll see states like new york, virginia go for abortions through all nine months but its woken up the american people. that's not where most people are about 75% of the americans would limit abortion after the first trimester so you're seeing step up advocating their legislators to speak up and protect the most innocent. jedediah: now we'll go to the california reproductive privacy
6:17 am
act. what's this about? >> this is scary. in california they are now allowing abortions up to the point of viability and non- medical doctors perform abortions. this should frighten us all. the reality is live action and other pro-life organizations have advocated against abortion, the reality of the procedure they can't even find abortion doctors to do these abortions so they are moving on to non- medical professionals and now the women dying from an untrained medical staffer performing an abortion should concern us all. jedediah: that's terrifying from the perspective of safety i don't care regardless of where you stand on the issue. >> yes. jedediah: and we'll end with the new york reproductive health act right here in new york. >> yeah i think you have done a great job talking about this the nation knows new york passed a crazy abortion law that goes through all nine months, and people went that's not where i stand. i am not okay with third trimester abortions. and they are starting to have these amazing conversations
6:18 am
about humanity, dignity, how do we look out for each other and take care of women unplanned pregnancies? i know amazing woman in this city who are looking out to support unplanned pregnancies. we need to do better than pitting a woman against her child and saying abortion is your only solution. she doesn't have to kill in order to succeed and that's what americans are saying in these other states. jedediah: with so much of the country opposing late term abortion, i find it really odd that folks on the left would be unable to answer a basic question of like amy klobuchar on the view of yes, immuno-oncology pose late term abortion. even if you're pro-choice safe and legal and rare it's not what's happening any more so what, how are they going to frame this moving forward to win a general election if they advocate for late term abortion? >> i have no idea. not a single presidential candidate has deviated from what you're saying all through nine months for any reason kind of language which isn't where the american people stands thankful ly, we're glad about that and just keep advocating for the rights of the child. it'll be a big debate heading into the election as well.
6:19 am
jedediah: important to know a lot of pro-life women are being warriors on this issue saying we are standing for life and always that talking point that it's anti-woman to be pro-life so women come out and say i'm fighting for life. thank you for being here this is tough stuff you broke down. appreciate it. >> appreciate it. jedediah: from military hero, former decorated green beret math use goldstein is now facing the death penalty for killing a taliban bombmaker his wife joins us live with an update on his case, coming up next. there was a moment, my son i believe was about four,
6:20 am
where he actually asked me "mommy what's wrong with your teeth?" if i would've known that i was gonna be 50 times happier... i would've gone into aspen dental much sooner. it was a very life changing experience... and it felt like i was me again. that's when i realized i hadn't been for three years. at aspen dental we're all about yes. like yes to flexible hours and payment options. yes to free exam and x-rays for new patients without insurance. and yes whenever you're ready to get started, we are too. call now at 1-800-aspendental. my body is truly powerful. i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it like it's supposed to. trulicity is for people with type 2 diabetes. it's not insulin. i take it once a week. it starts acting in my body from the first dose. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2.
6:21 am
stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, or severe stomach pain. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. i have it within me to lower my a1c. ask your doctor about trulicity.

6:23 am
>> did you kill the taliban bombmaker? >> yes. >> willingly offered up these details? >> right. >> at the cia. >> that's correct. >> that's where it all started? >> pretty much. >> after the bret baier interview they did reopen the investigation. the army has known about these allegations since 2011 and they were investigated thoroughly, and they were disposed of. ed: now they are basically bringing charges against him and he could face the death penalty. jedediah: president trump weigh ing in on the case as a decorated war hero charged with murder. the president tweeting at the request of many i'll be reviewing the case of a u.s. military hero, major matt goldstein. ed: the march hearing has been set in the case for major math use goldstein. until then he has been restricted to fort bragg but this morning he joins us for an exclusive. pete: what is the latest charge you would face? >> there's only one charge and that's pre-meditated murder and that carries with it a minimum of life in prison. pete: the maximum of death
6:24 am
penalty? >> yes. routine combat actions are being characterized as murder. pete: we put that together to make sure you're up to speed on the case. the man going from military hero to enemy of the state this week, the army announcing they will take their case against major goldstein to trial by court martial, at a yet to be determined date saying this. "u.s. army special operations command adheres to the uniform code of military justice which safeguards the rights of the accused an and serves the interest of the justice" and there is no additional comments so here with someone who does is major goldstein's wife, julie thank you for joining us. you saw the clip we played at the beginning to get people updated what's the status right now? >> just as you said, we found out on wednesday that we will, in fact, be headed to a court martial, for pre-meditated murder. we saw that on the paperwork that the general actually referred this to court martial and picked the jury the same day over a month ago. we just found out about it this
6:25 am
week. pete: it was ultimately directed by army chief of staff general m illy to take action against matt in the summer of 2018 so you're saying it feels like they're lining it all up against matt in order to get a prosecution? >> absolutely. this has started from the top. they are now, they put out these statements about having new evidence which they do not. there's nothing that was not already considered by the board of inquiry in 2015 in which matt was cleared, and they are hiding behind this claim of new evidence to hide their unlawful command influence. milly directed generals to take action on matt, and that's why he was recalled to bragg. it really, you know, they talk about these safeguards for matt. those are very hollow words and i'm sure those words about safe guarding matt's rights help ed those people sleep at night, but they are hollow and they are salt in the wounds and
6:26 am
a very painful, open wound, because anybody who wants to talk about matt's rights being protected is welcome to come spend some time with us and they can see exactly what's going on because there's no one looking out for matt's rights, including the lt. commander who charged matt and that matt has to report to every day, at 9:00 and 4:00, for the good order and discipline and for that we are separated as a family. this is full of corruption. pete: julie you say there's no new evidence, he's already been stripped of his special forces tab and of a silver star he earned for heroism on the battlefield. he admitted to this as part of what went on in combat, and yet they're going forward to court martial. do you think it is ultimately people with careers, prosecutors who say i need a scalp? that's what this is about? >> there are so many sinister actors at play and i am heart broken as matt's wife and a
6:27 am
mother and an american that this is how we treat somebody who put himself in such grave danger to make sure that his men came home , to protect the afghan civilian population. it is from the top down. everybody who is involved has something to gain from this. the lt. commander, todd sunday, who is our captor, he has been in the job of a captain, two pay grades below where he should be for three years, and he's getting a battalion command after this. the prosecutors have deferred their required career courses to get promoted to do this case. the cid agents who one was court martialed two weeks ago for making false statements and stolen valor. the other we just found out who worked the case with him has
6:28 am
also been kicked out of cid for his criminal behavior. i know you guys have the piece of i won't even say "evidence" the document that was sent where the army's finally acknowledging after seven and a half years that this whole thing that started this was an agent and they say mischaracterized. he lied and put his words in matt's mouth about something that never happened in afghanistan. this is not about truth. this is not about justice and this is not about what happened or didn't happen in afghanistan. this is about destroying my husband and my family. pete: julie we've reached out to the army they say no further comment. the commander-in-chief weighed in in the past saying he will review this case, any hope that the president may step in on this? >> at this point, i think that is our only hope, because it needs civilian intervention. pete: it feels like the system is rigged. >> it is absolutely rigged. the jury pool has already been
6:29 am
selected. it is rigged. the same people making the accusations are the people who control this fair and just process. this would never fly in the civilian world, never. pete: and yet we're doing it to a war fighter. julie we have to leave it right there. we're up against a hard break. we appreciate your passion. >> thank you. pete: our thoughts are with matt , keep fighting. >> thank you. pete: well the s. a.t., changing how it measures a student's test score adding adversity as a metric. but is this really a good idea? we'll discuss it coming up next. for your heart... or joints. but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally discovered in jellyfish, prevagen has been shown in clinical trials to improve short-term memory. prevagen. healthier brain. better life. at a comfort inn with a glow taround them, so people watching will be like, "wow, maybe i'll glow too if i book direct at choicehotels.com." who glows? just say, badda book. badda boom. book now at choicehotels.com.

6:31 am
6:32 am
6:33 am
pete: well jed, you're a former dean, academic you probably prepared some people for s. a.t. 's or at least talked to them about it, there's been a change. jedediah: there's now an adversity score they are incorporating because they want to account for other factors they are trying to the college board is basically saying look, as it stands right now, the s. a .t. doesn't look at the whole person so we want social factors , economic factors and factor that into the score so we can see is this a student coming from a school where this is in a poverty-stricken area where the crime rates are high and maybe her score isn't as good as somebody else but a higher than a great percentage of people in her class so they are trying to weigh them, it's a reaction to the green privilege people have been talking about where money buys success and that point by the way is valid. ed: you see the factors there, negotiating environment, crime
6:34 am
rate, poverty rate, family environment, your income. there's a fox news opinion article, they flashed up there from pete we're going to get to, high school environment where there's how rigourous is a curriculum and here is our buddy pete with an op-ed right now, graduates, it's time to un-learn college because when you hear about this adversity factor, how do you react? pete: well i think by the way it's private. you don't get to know what your adversity score is so what's my score, your score, how does it effect my application we all know certain people overcome adversity. you make sure the test is fair and teach people to take it well so they can get a high score. all i know is that college admissions already includes factors like diversity, you know they try to be fair toward people of different backgrounds. why do you add that to the s. a. t. as well like how do i up my adversity score? there's a lot of i think dis-in sent evers there. jedediah: the challenges that people contextualize if people spend thousands upon thousands of dollars parents who can't afford it to get tutoring for
6:35 am
their kids so it becomes a money game a lot of time and the effort although it's flawed what they should talk about is getting rid of the s. a.t. together and finding a better way to assess these students and they are trying to say listen this is a money game, it shouldn't be. they are trying to take the money out of the game. ed: we had christopher harris on earlier and he said whether you use the s. a.t. or some other way the bottom line is you should look at aptitude not these adversity factors. watch. >> it's great that colleges are looking for that x factor in students. i think most elite organizations , they're looking for x factors, because it's always good intentions and once again you're talking about policies that are being created that have this idea we're going to try to level the playing field, but the s. a.t. is supposed to be a scholastic aptitude test, and why are they taking into account your adversity when you're supposed to be taking a look at your scholastic aptitude?
6:36 am
pete: bingo how about we just teach kids properly and get them prepared in our high school so i did write that op-ed that you mentioned ed called "graduates it's time to un-learn college" because there's so much nonsense there's also commencement addresses have been happening so tomorrow, i teased this, go read it, if it gets approved, if approved, the chancellor and the dean of fox & friends have to approve it, i might get a chance to give the first-ever fox & friends commencement address live on the air. ed: we will work on it. pete: you guys will be in cap and gown as i will i, you had graduates of class of 2019 of fox & friends, and i'm not sure which is valedictorian yet. jedediah: me. i won't lie i'm part curious and part terrified. jedediah: pete is approving it please look closely, get a magnifying glass out on this one please. we'll turn to headlines for you now. a new documentary with a u.s. drone strike kills isis terrorist in seconds, and the
6:37 am
film says u.s. forces identify the isis leader by his beard and by the way he walked. jihadi john was known for be heading americans in propaganda videos and he was killed in syria in 2015. new york city mayor bill deblasio admits he might not qualify for the first presidential debate next month. ed: oh, boy. jedediah: he said yesterday in iowa "i'm not setting the expectations i'll be in it." democratic candidates need at least 1% of the vote in three polls and they can qualify with 65,000 unique donations. and some rideshare drivers might see their apps get deactivated for allegedly jacking up fares at washington d.c.'s reagan national airport. some uber and lyft drivers are accused of turning their apps on and off several times a night to create surge-pricing. drivers tell local media they do it because their pay is so low. and "game of thrones" is coming to an end. >> when you play the "game of
6:38 am
thrones" you win, you die. jedediah: hbo airing the final episode tomorrow night and a new survey shows nearly 11 million people plan to skip work on monday because of it. pete: really? jedediah: but not everyone has been happy with the final season nearly 1 million angry fans have signed a petition to redo the last season. well i don't watch it so i don't know why. pete: i don't either. you know they may end up redoing the last season two years from now to make a bunch of money. bad idea. jedediah: i don't like the finales of a lot of shows. they are really disappointing. pete: when i stay up late to watch a warriors rockets game why can't i call in sick? ed: i know. what kind of nonsense is that? in the latest episode of no interruption on fox nation, tommy sat down with top female race car driver angela rock. >> i love women that do things that women are not supposed to do. now, everyone knows i'm not a femininist but i'm all about female empowerment.
6:39 am
>> i dress up every day. i'm not in a pant suit. i dress up every day and race 100 miles an hour on a friday night. i'm living my dream today. its taken me so long to get here to this point but you have a lot of obstacles to get to that. pete: in february, rock became the first woman in nascar gander outdoor truck series to lead lap s and in march she brought home a beautiful baby boy, king knight ruch. jedediah: so what's it like to be a working mom in a male- dominated field. >> thank you so much for having me. jedediah: what's it like for you is there a double standard? are certain comments that people don't say about men, if they have children or whatnot apply to you? how does all this feel for you? >> you know it's something i've dealt with my whole life being in a male-dominated sport and one of the top females out there its definitely been a struggle but bringing a baby into the factor and trying to manage my career and earn the respect of nascar and obviously, my male competitors it's definitely a challenge and it's tough and i'm

dealing with it every single day , but i think i'm doing an incredible job. pete: angela, what do you do most women couldn't do what you do at the level which you do it just like most men couldn't do what nascar drivers do. what's special about your approach that's put you to the top? >> i would honestly to answer that question is i would say i just have a great team that helps support her. it allows m eto go to the shop and try to be great every day with having a baby on the side. it's definitely challenging i will say. last night coming home from the tracks i only got about an hour and a half of sleep, so that's tough, i don't have anybody there to wake up and do-it-for-me, unfortunately, but i'm loving every single minute of it. ed: well you mentioned that you hit the track last night in charlotte and if you heard us cheering a little extra loud for you, it's because you had fox nation on the truck. how about that. >> i loved having tommy, you know, on the truck for this weekend's race.
6:41 am
i got the chance to meet her, out in california and do a sit- down with her and i absolutely love her i must say. she stands for strong women and i love that and she doesn't take no for an answer and that's what i've been dealing with my whole life so let's just be real so the challenges she's faced i'm facing those maybe at a different angle. but in the end we're all winning ed: well good luck to you and your growing family and everyone can check out the special at fox nation. we want to see that and appreciate you coming in. pete: thanks a lot good luck. >> thanks so much. ed: meanwhile we've been talking about this all morning as scrutiny grows over the origins of the russia investigation democrats now setting their sights on the attorney general bill barr. pete: but are they just trying to divert attention away from the real scandal? we'll debate that coming up next >> ♪ ♪

6:45 am
ed: well you heard it democrats expressing outrage over bill barr's handling of the mueller report. they are now going after his credibility. >> attorney general bill barr is now one of the most dangerous men in washington d.c. having proved himself to be the personal attorney to president trump, rather than the attorney general of the united states. >> the attorney general of the united states of america was not telling the truth to the congress of the united states. that's a crime. ed: well, the attorney general hit back on those claims in an exclusive interview with our colleague but are they just trying to divert attention away from the real scandal about how this russia investigation started here to debate republican strategist and partner, holly turner and good to see you both, good morning. >> hiked, ed. ed: kevin is this a case where democrats set the standard where they wanted bill barr to release the entire mueller report un redacted even though it had secret grand jury information
6:46 am
and he would be breaking the law if he released it? >> well what we're saying is that at least the lawmakers, the members of congress, deserve to see the full report as much as possible and deserve to see the underlying evidence. ed: okay hang on he offered them to do that and basically none of them went to do it so please answer my question, which is, the democrats, your party, was asking the attorney general to release secret grand jury information, which would have broken the law, right? >> right, they were asking him to do that, because they felt that that was necessary for them to make the legislative changes that would be necessary in the wake of russian interference in the 2016 election, and what we're saying is that this whole investigation into the fisa warrant process from 2016 is really nothing more than payback for william barr they are trying to now investigate the investigators without fully closing the loop on this investigation, we still haven't seen all of the information we need to take the actions necessary. ed: we'll get to that
6:47 am
investigation in a moment, holly , how do you react to kevin admitting basically his party wanted the attorney general to break the law and put this secret grand jury information out there. >> they know that he can't. they know that he can't break the law and so they were hoping he would say i'm sorry i can't do that so that they could just continue their lie that there's a cover-up and the american people deserves to know the truth when we know the truth. the only thing we don't know is how this whole thing started and for anyone, democrat or republican, to be upset that the attorney general is trying to get to the bottom of this and how this started is just astonishing to me. how could we not want to know the answer. ed: i'll give you each 30 seconds kevin first. fair shot at it. why don't you want to know whether or not americans were spied on, carter page, maybe others, through a false premise to the fisa court? why don't you want to answer that? >> well we do know that. the doj laid it out that they were relying on the steele dossier, and it's just important to realize that the source of
6:48 am
information that leads to a warrant does not need to be fully credible. it doesn't need to be fully verified as long as you disclose the source of the information and sort of the faults with the information and they did that. ed: but hang on i think it has to be fully backed up. isn't that the question, holly, that if you go to the fisa court and surveil american citizens shouldn't you have all the facts together? >> absolutely and criminal lawyers across this country know that the number one way to get a case overturned and to get a conviction overturned is to show that the warrant was not made in good faith and that the underlying evidence was not credible, so that's what we're doing here and look this is not just about president trump and his associates and people in the administration. it's about all americans doing this and understanding what will really happen benefits all americans. ed: we'll see if the attorney general gets to the bottom of it appreciate you both coming in. >> thanks, ed. ed: still ahead we all know what happened the last time pete and i got in a couple kayaks.
