rant. i carry it in my purse with me. rob: she says people don't notice i notice. jillian: can't smell it through the tv. have a good day. steve: 6:00 in new york city and this is a fox news alert. tensions rising nut middle east. iranian officials say they are ready for a war after the iranians shot down an american surveillance drone over night. ainsley: latest and boldest move yet in a series of alarm will incidents. ed: lucas tomlinson has the breaking details. >> the race is on to recover the wreckage of a u.s. navy high altitude drone shot down by iranian surface to air missile. in international airspace over the strait of hormuz not far from where u.s. officials say iran attacked two oil tankers in the gulf of oman last week and four
others last month. not how the u.s. the target list has been drawn up. up to the president to decide whether or not to strike back. president trump spoke to sean hannity last night around the same time the drone was shot down. >> i worry about iran i can't believe proxy wars and terror. tell me your concerns. >> don't worry about a thing. everything is under control. don't worry about a thing. iran is a much different country. i will tell you much different today than when i took over. when i took over it looked like there was no stopping them. the drone defloyd to the middle east as part of reinforcement approved by the president last month. navy high altitude drone can fly up to 60,000 feet and loiter for 30 hours at a time. used to spy on communications and track shipping. each drone costs up to $180 million. two u.s. drones have now been shot down in the region this month. i'm also told iranian forces
tried to shoot down another u.s. drone. iranian back forces fired cruise missiles into saudi arabia hitting a power plant. guys? steve: where the drone was. iranians say it was in their airspace. we say 17 miles into international airspace that should be pretty easy to prove with g.p.s., shouldn't it? >> it should. officials told me they saw the drone go down and landed in the waters. one of the reasons you have u.s. warships and helicopters hoping to get there before the iranians do. ainsley: iranians admitted it and saying this was an american spy drone. this drone as he said costs up to $180 million. this is not some drone that you are getting off amazon. this is an aircraft that is -- belongs to our government. ed: think about the context the reignian officials saying enriching uranium at higher level. basically a nuclear grade.
that suggests they are continuing to edge closer to closer to this nuclear program. that we have been trying to stop for a long time. so the steaks have very high. steve: plus you factor in these attacks on the tankers out there. and yesterday the we have proof iranians did it. fingerprints and palm prints of people taking one of the unexploded magnetic mines off of one of the tankers. ed: telling bret baier more dangerous every day. ainsley: volatile situation this just just escalates it. steve: let's talk about what happens yesterday nut house judiciary subcommittee. they were looking into reparations for slavery. and what role reparations would serve in correcting what is referred to as the original sin, which is slavery here in the united states. house democrats are pushing hr 40 creates a commission legacy of slavery and make
proposals on reparations to african-americans. the big question is whether or not the house will go ahead with that. steny hoyer said yesterday we will have a vote in the house if it gets out of the committee. yesterday in the committee it got heated. >> the stable of slavery was not just inked in blood shed but in the overt state sponsored policies that fueled white supremacy and racism and have disadvantaged african-americans economically for generations. >> it is important that we know our history and we not punishable people today for the sins of their predecessors in the democratic party. but. >> you lie. >> i just stated all facts. >> black people don't need another apology. the moment you give me reparations you have made me into a victim without my consent. bill hr 40 is a moral and political mistake.
>> chill, chill, chill. he was presumptive but he still has a right to speak. >> obviously reprehensible time in american history. why now? have you got cory booker who obviously as a senator has every right to bring thumb. he is running for president. al sharpton and other leaders in the democratic party have been pushing this and various democratic parties have gotten behind it. remember what you are said, steve, it's not actual reparations a bill to have commission to study it. a lot of these presidential democratic candidates both ways. show the left we are serious about this but they are not actually directly supporting reparations. steve: mitch mcconnell is ♪ supporting. he is over nut senate he said yesterday he opposes reparations because none of us currently living are responsible for slavery and then cory booker came out and said there is a tremendous amount of ignorance in that statement. yesterday there were a number of speakers, they included the actor danny
glover, film director karina brown, comey hughes and burgess owens who said this last night with tucker about what was going on. >> it's not black supremacist it's black elitism. many of those on the panel not on the panel but in the black caucus that have seen this misery of their policies for decades and they do nothing about it. we need to change the trajectory of our race and make them feel good about them sistlesz. today we are having real conversations not the type to take us down socialist path. those who dig n to it another form of welfare having people to ask for something they never earned and then actually be and feel entitled if they don't give it to them then they will be angry about it. ainsley: you know what he said in that hearing tee looked around the room and said i used to be in your party. i used to you be a democrat. when i did research and
found out that democrats were the party of slavery, i left your party. and then the democrats, the whole room was actually left speechless he said i do believe in restitution. let's point to the party that was part of slavery, kkk, jim crow and killed over 10% of our black babies, 20 million of them. california 70% of our black boys can't pass a reading or writing that democratic state. let's pay restitution. how about the democratic party pay for all of the misery brought to my race. ed: interesting. i was talking about how this was something animate you had the left in terms of the democratic presidential primaries. what the broader public think? we just had a fox news poll. do you favor paying cash payments to desen dental of slaves 60% oppose and 32% support. hillary clinton and barack obama didn't support reparations.
why is it that the last were not in favor? steve: that poll we just cited was from april of this year. marist did a apostle two years ago in 2016, three years ago. said'6" 8% of the country said we should not pay cash reparations. 8 in 10 white americans said they were opposed to reparations, 6 in 10 black americans said they were in favor. weather does it go? will it even make it out of committee? ainsley: let us know what you think. very emotional topics discussed in washington. remember aoc compared what happened on our border to nazi concentration camps. she said in a tweet dhs ripped thousands of children from their parents and put them in cages. they call themselves dog pounds and freezers. i will never apologize for calling these camps what they're. if that makes you uncomfortable. fight the camps not the
nomenclature. steve: the research she used camps. on tuesday she said border patrol is runs concentration camps. ainsley: she said concentration camps not nazi camps. ed: and she said never again. steve: and liz cheney said please aoc do a favor and please spend a few minutes of learning actual history holocaust museum in israel and needed a history. and tweeted a link to labor and concentration camps. nancy pelosi who has in the past actually spoken to aoc about some of her troubling comments that were troubling, problematic for the party, said this yesterday about the camps remark. >> understand that while the republicans have no interest in holding the president accountable for his words they will misrepresent
anything that you say just if you have one word in the sentence that they can exploit. ed: also interesting that the mayor of new york city also run for president bill de blasio a democrat called her comments out and said they were wrong. also don't forget controversy even before this started about the camps, the fences, everything. the photos that were used originally months and months ago were from 2014 under the obama administration. so if she really believes there are concentration camps. why didn't this kind of start under the obama administration. there is a rabbi who runs a national conference of jewish affairs. here's what he says. >> she deliberately used a reference to the holocaust. she called me concentration camps. she didn't talk about temporary holding centers which they are. they specifically used the term concentration camps. so as to equate what we are doing at the southern border to equate that with the nazi
extermination of the jews. why did she do that? because she wants to demonize the president of the united states and that's why so many in the democrat party have supported her. this was deliberately done to tarnish the president. ainsley: she represents new york. and nancy pelosi said these democrats, we all need to be careful because we need to remember who put us in office, who our constituents are. and the jewish committee relations council of new york said we are deeply disturbed by her language. steve: she did tweet out yesterday i will never apologize for calling these camps what they are. let us know firstname.lastname@example.org. and also on facebook. joining us now jillian has the news. jillian: we do have breaking news. let's start with this fox news alert right now. the man suspected of killing a sacramento police officer is reportedly under arrest. after a nearly 8 hour standoff. a woman shot after she tried to help a woman escape a
domestic dispute situation. > caraa was sworn to protect. we are heart broken. >> it took 40 minutes to get as you will van. she died at the hospital. she is the 20th police officer shot in the line of duty this year. david ortiz was not the intended target of the murder for hire plot in the dominican republic. prosecutors say the gunman got confused by the red sox clothes and actually mental to shoot ortiz's friend sitting nearby. officials believe the hit was supposed to be pay back after ortiz's friend turned a criminal into dominican police a decade ago. ortiz is recovering at boston hospital. doctors say he is in good condition. president trump wants instincts spot on when it comes to sarah huckabee sanders post white house plants. >> i have a feeling she is
going to be running for a certain gubernatorial position. sarah huckabee sanders. [cheers and applause] >> thank you, mr. president. [chanting sarah] jillian: so according to politico the outgoing white house press secretary has been making calls to g.o.p. donors and operatives in arkansas. sarah for governor.com and sarah for arkansas.com have also been recently registered anonymously. her father mike huckabee served as gornl of arkansas from 1997 to 2006. stay tuned for more. steve: he knows exactly how to do it. ainsley: that's right. he can help her. steve: thanks, jillian. was there really spying happening on donald trump's campaign for president? now there is a doj investigation. >> we're trying to find out whether or not they actually listened in on my calls. that would be the ultimate. we will see what happens. ed: jason chaffetz joins us

about to issue his report, we are about to find out if the president was right. steve: from your sources in washington, d.c., does that explain why a number of people close to this investigation who have been out in front of it have kind of said what they have said over the last couple of weeks? >> well, yes. and, remember, you have people like john ratcliffe a former u.s. attorney, member of congress, he has actually been in there and looked at the fisa reports himself. he says it's a verified application. he has read it in its entirety. you have got to really believe a person like john ratcliffe. and, remember how uncooperative the fbi has been. the inspector general on the previous report that was done last year, his conclusions were pretty definitive. the fbi said they couldn't even get to the text between strzok and page and others. remember, horowitz had to go
work with the pentagon to go in and look at what the fbi had. steve: just any it. remember when donald trump was widely ridiculed for that tweeted where i believe i was wiretapped in trump tower. >> yeah, no. and when that happened. and given my former chairman of the oversight committee it really was curious the timing as to why he came out with that. you look at it now, and he had really good reasonable to believe that that was true. and if they were spying on some people, did they stop and turn it off, when maybe donald trump himself was involved? that's why the inspector general report is going to be so critical. it's right around the corner. steve: okay. can't wait. all right. jason chaffetz joining us today from utah. jason, thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: what do you think about that? four years since the charleston church massacre.

grateful that you forgave but 48 hours later. it was immediate. why did you decide to do that? >> well, it was god's divine intervention. i had no intentions of going to the bond hearing. my daughter urged me to go. when i gout there, i told her we are not going to say anything and god showed up and said get up i have something to say. ainsley: it wasn't just you there were several in the bond hearing that day that stood up and said i forgive. >> yes, nadine, the daughter of one of the victims she was the first to forgive dillon. >> you have never looked back. have you had to continuously ask for forgiveness. >> oh, no. once i have give it. it was not for dylan it was for me to receive the peace i needed to move forward in my life. ainsley: hows that ha incident changed your life. >> it changed my life greatly the lord has put me on a new mission to spread the gospel and first and foremost i received a peace like no other to enable me, my family and also our

once i discovered that she was department of education, she had been killed, not knowing who did it, i just lost all control. you know, i fell on the ground crying trying to figure out exactly what happened. was she suffering? was she dead? or what was going on? at that time no one was able to give us any information. and that's when god spoke while i was wallowing on the ground crying. ainsley: said what? >> said get up. said it very harshly. not like this is the lord fear not. it was like get up. i didn't know exactly who it was. once i realized it was him. i know that voice. it's a very familiar voice. i heard that voice when i was 7 years old. he told me i was going to be a preacher. i told him no. i heard his voice again that night. letting him know i don't want to hear you right now however i did hear him. he led me to the scripting luke the 17th chapter saying that things will happen in

in was slow. there was check-in. we were trying to get all our rooms together. hung out at the pool. we went up to our rooms because they were still cleaning a couple of them. we do the normal thing. check out your room and then we see the refrigerator and then we see -- pull out this thing and there is three bottles of alcohol that you can put your glass to. we knew not to do that because we had been hearing some of the news about the mini bars and stuff. i said well, we are just thought going to take anything from that. they supplied water and sodas in the mini fridge. so we were doing that and monday and tuesday were great. what happened tuesday night dinner time is when we went around 6:30 to score rose restaurant and once we were at the table started feeling a little sick after we
finished eating 8:30 went back up to our rooms. and 9:00 comes around, my son wasn't feeling really good at all. so he went to the restroom and he stayed there pretty much the revs the night until about 1:00. i went down stairs to the wanted to see a manager. they were going to charge us $250 for a doctor to come up. i said that's not right. this happened in your resort. we need to have some medical assistance. ed: tim, pardon me, but you said you didn't have any of that alcohol there in the mini bar that you saw and i believe you were celebrating your son's 18th -- 18-year-old's son's graduation from high school. sounds more like food or something else. >> yeah. ed: and not the alcohol? >> right. well, at the time -- dinner, i mean, we had -- everybody

to take a chance traveler so we all started. ainsley: you have heard the stories and then your family members are getting sick. were you thinking the worst? >> oh, yeah. especially when your son, i mean, we did this basically because it was his high school graduation gift and going off to west point. last hurrah type of vacation. yeah, this is thought what we wanted. it basically wrecked the rest of our vacation. i mean, it was tough. i mean, we started, yeah, my wife was worried. excuse me. we went to -- like i said i went down to file, to talk to a manager and a manager came and i filed a report. somebody will get back to you. nobody ever got back to us. the customer service at the hotel was really not that great. steve: tim, i understand, you tried to leave early. they were talking about a $1,000 cancellation fee.

with leaking g.o.p. information during supreme court justice brett kavanaugh confirmation hearing. ed: this after another aide jackson cosco was sentenced to four years in prison yesterday for the dosksing scheme. steve: doxxing in this case somebody put the personal phone numbers and addresses of five u.s. senators and of republicans on wikipedia page. >> four years for doxxing may sound unusually harsh. think about this. this isn't just an act of embarrassment or an act of revealing truthful information that you wouldn't want revealed to the public whether embarrassing or not. this is an effort to interfere with the constitutional role of the united states senate in confirming a nominee to the supreme court. this is a material interference with the function of the government. and i think the sentence was appropriate. it seems harsh for doxxing.
but this message has to be sent to people. i don't know what's going to happen to the person they just charged. the person they charged yesterday is accused of aiding and abetting the person that was sentenced yesterday. part of the same scheme. questions were more people involved? bigger questions did anybody else know about this? did the members of congress for whom these people worked. appears senator hasan knew nothing about it. should she have known what was being done by the people she had entrusted and given access to the computer system? ed: they were trying to get this information and releasing some of it home addresses of senators and whatnot involved in the kavanaugh confirmation process as you say because they wanted people to maybe go to their homes and maybe hurt them or threaten them. this is serious, serious stuff. judge: the judge, when sentencing, took into account, this is an effort to interfere with the functions of the government. when the president complained in orlando the other night about efforts to block the nomination of then
judge kavanaugh, efforts to destroy his legacy and destroy his reputation. he also aloaded to this. the president has a very strong case. the efforts to block kavanaugh were unlike anything we have ever seen. ainsley: those senators all have children. you could really go over to their house and do some damage and put their kids at risk. i'm glad a judge sensdz this message. telling other people doing it in the future don't do it or it could happen to you. what do you gather though, these were aides. do you think this comes from someone else? >> i don't think so. i think the fbi has taken it so seriously. if it went up the totem pole, i think we would know about it. not only aides, they were unpaid aides. this is entry level. these people at entry level should not have had access to computers that they did. ainsley: shows you how much hatred is out there. how far apart the two parties are. >> the hatred is palpable. all the best.

ainsley: we begin with a fox news alert. tension in the middle east reaching a boiling point. iran says it's ready for war after shooting an american drone down overnight. ed: a series of alarming incidents nut middle east. steve: lucas tomlinson is in the middle east with the latest on this? >> steve, ainsley, ed, i'm told the race is on to recover the wreckage of a u.s. navy high altitude drone shot down by iranian surface-to-air missile last night shot down over the strait of hormuz not far from where officials say iran attacked two oil tankers in the gulf of oman last week and four others last month. it's not clear how the u.s. will respond to the provocation. officials tell me a target list has been drawn up but it's up to the president to decide whether or not to strike back. before the incident, senator lindsey graham spoke to bret baier on "special report." >> my red line if there is any more disruption in the shipping of hormuz linked to
iran take out navy, bomb their refineries if there is any more attack on american interests go after the iranian interests so they will feel pain. >> navy drone recently deployed in the middle east fartpart of reinforcements. the drone can fly up to 60,000 feet and loiter for 30 hours at a time. it's used to spy on iranian military communications and track shipping in the busy waterways. each drone costs up to $180 billion. two u.s. drones have now been shot down in the region this month. i'm told iran tried to shut down another u.s. drone and u.s. officials say last night iranian backed launched cruise missiles into saudi arabia hitting a power plant. steve: a lot going on. these drones are gigantic. ainsley: 180 million. steve: $180 million. the wing span of a commercial jet liner is gigantic. ed: remember the context why is iran laura bushing without these incidents.
the allies believe the president's maximum pressure campaign of tough sanctions against tehran is really throttling them and their economy is in shamables. so they are doing these incidents, which are dangerous but are not massive, right? to -- in order to sort of rattle the cage. ainsley: get our attention, right. ed: get our attention because they are in desperate straits. steve: they're indeed. talk about what is going on on capitol hill. keep in mind historically back in the years 2008 and 2009. congress issued apologies for slavely. fast forward to today and particularly yesterday. house democrats are pushing hr 40. that would then create a commission to study the legacy of slavery and make proposals whether or not african-americans should be paid reparation. ainsley: um-huh. what you are going to hear right now is a little bit of that heated and emotional testimony yesterday in front of that committee. here is some congressman that are going to react. we also have burgess owens
who was on that panel. the oakland aird and comey hughes you will find what he says very interesting. he is a democrat and writer. he is saying reparations would make him a i have. listen to the montage of all these sound bites. >> the stain of slavery was not just inked in blood shed but in the overt slavery policies that fueled racism disadvantaged african-americans for decades. >> it is important that we know our history and not punish people today for the sins of their predecessors in the democratic party. but. >> you lie. >> i just stated all facts. >> the moment you give me reparations, have you made me into a victim without my consent. bill hr 40 is a moral and political mistake. [crowd boos] >> chill, chill, chill. he was presumptive but he
still has a right to speak. >> i used to be a democrat until i did my history and found out the misery that that party brought to my race. how about a democratic party pay for all the misery brought to my race. steve: steny hoyer said yesterday the house would voted on it if it got out of committee. talked to lawrence jones, fox news contributor campus reform. he joins us now from texas. >> good morning. steve: lawrence, what do you make of congress grappling with reparations? >> well, you know, quite frankly, when i went to watch the hearing, it was kind of frustrating because as you would imagine the party wants to take responsibility for not just what happened when it comes to slavery but what happened after slavery during reconstruction. you had a lot of the republicans saying hey, the democrats are responsible for this. which is true in some sense. but there is also no accountability for what happened after slavery during reconstruction where
many black people weren't republicans in fact and then there were also lily white republicans that tried to push black people out of the republican party. there is a stain when it comes to both parties as it relates to slavery as well as reconstruction era civil rights movement. neither side wants to take responsibility. now, as it relates to reparations. of course i disagree with it. i don't like it. i think it's a bad proposal for many reasons there also has to be response to the democrats' recent occurrence of wanting to have reparations. what would that response be? i have advocated for republicans to talk about financial literacy, to talk about building businesses in the black community. reforming the education system. but, what have you right now is essentially the democrats trying to paint the republicans as not caring. i think the message is to make us care is to say this is our response. we care but. we just don't believe that the government should have to pay back, especially people paying for the sins
of their grandfather's. ed: if this is such a great idea. barack obama now running for president for eight years why for eight years they never implemented reparations or called for them? ainsley: i know president obama, lawrence, and hillary clinton they said they were not in support of this because of the astronomical costs involved and when i was thinking about in this morning, how would we pay for that? everyone recognizes the horrors of slavery? how would our country be able to pay for it? >> yeah. that's a great question. i don't think we would be able to pay for it. but what has happened now is there is a grassroots efforts to get this done within the democratic party. these are the local grassroots people putting pressure on the elected officials to get it done. so, again, this is not party leadership that's going to be able goose it. of course the presidential candidates are going to be for this because there is a progressive wing pushing for this. of course they are going to
say we are going to get this done. will it actually pass legislation wise? i don't think so. they don't have the votes to get something like this done. steve: i was reading this morning in the "new york post" they cited a marist poll from 2016, lawrence. and they said 68% of the country said they should not pay casual reparations but when you broke it down by race 8 in 10 white americans said they were opposed to reparations. 6 in 10 black americans said they were in favor of reparations. >> look, there is an obvious split. there is still a lot of hurt within this country that people feel like they should get something for slavery. again, i mean, i like to think the parts of history and it was alluded to a little bit within the speeches on capitol hill where black people were able to progress without the help of white people after slavery, there were black
wall street, tuskegee. me and my sister were having this conversation morning. we were able to move forward in this country after slavery. i think if the republican party would focus their message on that to counter democrats' message of some check -- you can never repay for slavery. that's just a fact of the matter. there is not a dollar amount that you could pay to make it right. all we can do is move forward. how we do that is make sure everybody has an ability to come up in this nation. we do that by educating the population on different tools in the country to you make that happen. steve: okay. let's see what congress does. ainsley: good point. steve: freshman congresswoman from new york alexandria ocasio-cortez on tuesday said, lawrence, the united states is running concentration camps on the border and that's exactly what they are, they are concentration camps. a number of people have criticized her for that. yesterday she tweeted this. ainsley: she says dhs ripped
thousands of parent children frm parents and put them in inhumane conditions. they call their cells dog pounds and freezers. i will never apologize for calling these camps what they are. if that makes you uncomfortable, fight the camps, not the nomenclature. >> it is obvious aoc has no idea what she is talking about. because she hasn't visited these facilities. as you know i have been on the border. i have been with the border agents i have been to the facilities outside of them. look, this is just -- this is what the democrats do though. they take these extremist positions. they try to cherry pick history to fit their narrative. they did the same thing two years ago when they said -- when people were harporing illegals they called it a new underground railroad. okay in the thing that they are not noting is that in both situations none of these people were invading a country. right? black people didn't invade america they were stripped
away. jews weren't invading germany. okay? so you have a group of people invading the u.s. border, right? and they are being held in facilities. these are not -- many times the border officials are taking carol of their kids. rescuing their kids when they're drowning in the water because their parents have put them in tough situations. none of that is mentioned. and i think it's inresponsible for a u.s. elected official to take such a racist stance quite frankly. ed: wow. okay. lawrence jones, some strong opinions this morning. appreciate you coming. in don't forget to catch his show "keeping up with jones" and man on the street, two shows on fox nation. go there right now foxnation.com. ainsley: thanks, lawrence. hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. jillian: that's right. good morning. we begin with a fox news alert. a man suspected of killing a sacramento police officer is reportedly under arrest after a near 8-hour standoff. officer tara owe sullivan was shot as she tried to hip

steve: this is a fox news alert. you are looking at rqf hawk surveillance drones. one of the drones like that was shot down by the country of iran last night. they said we were in iranian airspace, the united states says we were in international airspace. of course, this is an area regarding so much of the world's petroleum products goes through the strait of hormuz. stuart varney joins us right now. stuart, international reaction so far to this is what? >> in my opinion muted. if this had happened two years ago, three years ago an american drone shot down right in the middle of a oil patch by a hostile power the price of oil would go zooming i guarantee you up 10, 20, 30 bucks a barrel. instead all have you ainstead $2-barrel increase to 55 adds barrel.

i agree with the president 100 percent. the fact is we are where we are. here's the bottom line. the president was falsely accused of collusion the question is do you investigate the false investigation or continue to investigate something bob mueller spent 22 months investigating and said there was nothing there. obviously the democrats have chosen the latter and as the president said they will keep subpoenaing people and keep doing impeachment hearings even though though won't call it a impeachment hearing in the judiciary committee. bob mueller spent 22 months, $30 million, 19 lawyers, most of them democrats. 40 fbi agents, 500 witnesses and 2800 subpoenas on investigation he concluded there was nothing there. steve: congressman, when you go home to ohio and you talk to the people, how often do they say hey, what's going on with the collusion thing and the mueller report and the president should be impeached or do they ask you about other things? i'm just curious in the list
of priorities where what the democrats are doing is landing. >> do you know the question i get all the time and not just in the fourth district of ohio but when i'm traveling at the airport or somewhere i get it all the time. when is someone going to jail? because the american people know that what took place when the fbi, the you were echelon of the fbi who had such a problem as bill barr has said, when they took one party's opposition research document, dress it all up and made it look like legitimate and intelligent took a secret court to get a warrant to spy on president trump's campaign, they said when is someone going to be held accountable? that's the question i get from people all the time and frankly from people all over the country. they also want us to address the crisis on the border. they love the fact that the economy is going and all those other things and like the democrats to focus on that instead of continuing their investigation. they want us to do what bill barr and -- doing get us to how this whole thing started. steve: that's what the president was talking about on sean hannity.
listen to this sound bite, congressman. >> we are trying to find out whether or not they actually linksd in on my calls. imagine if it were the other way around and i spied on president obama's campaign? could you imagine what the repercussions would be or i spied on crooked hillary's campaign? can you milwaukee what the repercussions would be? steve: congressman, can you imagine if they were listening in on the phone of a man who was running for president of the united states? >> remember what bill barr said about 10 weeks ago when he first testified in front of the united states senate? he said four very important things failure of leadership at the upper echelon of. we know that second of all spying occurred. stead twice. third a basis for my concern about the spying that took place. and then fourth he used two terms that should scare every american, he used the term unauthorized surveillance and political surveillance. he is going to get to the bottom of this and just out

ainsley: i know he loves florida, loves new york. ed: we have some serious news breaking overnight. steve: we do. california police officer shot and killed in an ambush overnight. the latest on the suspect live from sacramento on "fox & friends." guys, what's the matter? i heard there were fleas out here. and t-t-t-t-t-icks! and mosquitoooooooooooes! listen up, scaredy cats. we all have k9 advantix ii to protect us. it kills and repels fleas, ticks and mosquitoes, too. let's get down to business. the business of getting it done. the business of road trips. the business of getting everyone back together. the business of hustle... ...and hard work...
ainsley: we are back with a fox news alert. the man suspected of killing a young sacramento police officer is reportedly under arrest. steve: officer tara o'sullivan pictured right there shot trying to help a woman escape a domestic dispute situation. ainsley: live outside the home where the officer was shot. karma? >> good morning, yes. we are taking a look at the scene and really this is the closest we have been able to get to the scene in hours. this all started yesterday at about noon. and take a look at what we can still see. we have been able to move closer in just the last hour or so as forces have started to draw down. there is no official confirmation that the standoff is over.
however, we have seen a lot of armored police vehicles, large command centers moving out of the area. we are in a north sacramento area and just between the two cars where you can see that there are a lot of police lights, that is the house where it all happened. as you mentioned, it started with a call of a police disturb bans. it was about 12 clock excuse me it was a domestic disturbance and police responded to help a woman having a domestic issue. when they returned to the house to help the woman collect some of they're things, that is when things reportedly started to go south. as the woman was collecting her things, a suspect, armed with a rifle, fired at woman and officers. and officer o'sullivan was hit by gunfire at around 6:10 p.m. it's not known how many other officers were in the area at the time. the police were taking cover from gunfire. we want to stress just how dramatic and dangerous this scene was. a person firing well into the night. first shots fired around
6:00, as of around 11:30 the suspect was still reportedly actively firing randomly into the community. now we do know that this has gotten a lot quieter since then and in the last hour and a half as i mentioned we have watched police forces move out of the area. police tell us they are working on getting an official statement about what happened. still not confirming that they have the gunman in custody. however, we have definitely seen this situation start to draw down since then. reporting from sacramento, i'm karma dickerson. steve: car marks thank you very much. ainsley: o'sullivan is the 20th police officer shot and killed in the line of duty this year. steve: that is terrible. ed, over to you. ed: all right. thank you. the question of reparations meanwhile moving from a talking points on the 2020 campaign to an actual hearing on capitol hill as a house panel yesterday called witnesses to address it. among them an african-american writer heckled for these remarks. >> the people who are owed for slavery are no longer here. and we are not entitled to
collect on their debts. bill hr 40 is a moral and political mistake. thank you. >> thank you, mr. hughes. [boos] [gavel] >> chill, chill, chill. he was presumptive but he still has a right to speak. >> here to reacted is the executive director of unhyphenated america christopher harris. good morning, christopher. >> good morning, ed. ed: what do you think about this young man saying look, i don't want to be seen as a victim and people in the crowd for heckling him? >> i think he was 100 percent correct, ed, you know, the black people i know who are the happiest in america are those who realize they are part of the fortunate 4.2% of the world wants population to be living here in america. but, you know, about the issue of slavery and reparations. you know, when you continually put someone first and they put you last. that makes you a political church. we keep putting forward this issue every year. they are the same people. the same congressman putting
forth this issue every year or at least they put it forth every year when there is a republican in the white house. but, yet, they have had multiple opportunities to put forth this issue. they had it ever since the congressional black caucus has existed. there was a time in when jimmy carter was in the white house and he had complete control of the congress. there was a time when when bill clinton had complete control of the congress. and time when barack obama had complete control of the congress. if it was going to happen, it would have happened then. it's not going to happen. black folks, listen, i really want to tell you it's not going it happen. they are treating you like lucy treated charlie brown pulling the football underneath just before they prom mills he could kick it this time. it's not going to happen. ed: do you know what's interesting? it's to your point i covered barack obama as president closely for eight years. this was not an issue he pushed. and as you say into his first two years in office. he had a democratic house and senate where maybe he could have done it. here's what president obama said in 2016. quote: i have much more confidence in my ability to mobilize the american people
around an investment to help every child in poverty in this country than i am in being able to mobilize the country around providing a benefit specific to african-americans as a consequence of slavery and jim crow. i think it's very significant as well. here he was on the way out of office when he had nothing to lose politically. he was presumably being honest and direct. and was also, at the beginning of that, not talking about black kids in poverty. he was saying all kids in poverty. we should focus on helping lift them up. >> well, ed, here's the question. what halls he done since then besides enrich himself? i mean, he said that was going to be a focus. what has he done since then? see, go back to 2008 when peggy joseph who was infamous for saying she wasn't going to have to worry about anything anymore since barack obama the was the president. if you fast forward an interview of her from 2014 where she basically said she had a lot of remorse for that and she said she felt rather foolish.
and that she learned that don't trust the wizard. not only is barack obama the wizard but the whole dnc is the wizard. they are behind the curtains. they are acting like all this stuff is going to happen. ed: let me push back on that point. president obama is obviously thought here to defend himself. i was in chicago with him when he was pushing this initiative i believe it's called my brother's keeper. outside initiative not focused on getting government money, private funds, and i know president obama has helped raise particularly focused on young african-american males in chicago. and, again, trying to lift them up by boot straps. not by government prawms and the rest. i think in fairness to him, president obama has done that while in office and i understand he is still involved out of office. last point from you. >> show me the money, ed. show me where the results are here is what we can see that president donald trump has done is that he actually helped black folks by cutting regulations. cutting taxes and, look, the lowest unemployment rate in recorded history for black people. america, overall but for
black people in general. he actually did something, instead of just talking about it we got at love talk from barack obama and a lot of talk from democrats and nothing got done. we had the first step act that president trump has done. he is actually helping black people instead of sitting there using us as political pawns. ed: raising questions as joe biden. president with barack obama for 8 years. where weighs on all of this back then. christopher harris, thanks for coming. >> in thank you. ed: it is a disturbing statistic. more women admitting they are using marijuana while pregnant. is that safe? dr. nicole saphier separates fact from fiction ♪ ♪ ♪ applebee's new loaded chicken fajitas. now only $10.99.

>> at states across the country legalize or ease marijuana laws, a government government help survey says pot use among pregnant women has doubled since 2002. overall 7% of pregnant women told researchers that they used marijuana in the past month, compare that to about 3% in 2002. joining us now to react is fox news medical contributor dr. nicole saphier. hey, dr. saphier. >> good morning. ainsley: these women are saying when they were surveyed that their doctor said it was okay. what do you say? >> well, that's actually not true from the survey. this was a large survey presented earlier this week. they polled about half a million women. talked about did you use marijuana during pregnancy and if you did, was it for medicinal use or recreational use? now as you notice, we went from 3% to 7% who said they actually used marijuana during their pregnancy. most interesting was most of theme using it in first trimester really important
for fetal development. of them they said 0.5% actually told them that their doctor told them to take it. i'm not so sure about that. the american college of obstetricians and combine knowcology justs are absolutely against marijuana. i don't know which doctors they are talking about. the problem with these studies is they are exposed to a lot of bias, specifically recall bias. what are you doing? you are just asking women. right? and so it's -- tough depend on them telling you, one, if they used marijuana and, two, how much of it they used and what their reasons were. ainsley: what were their reasons? because they were sick during the first trimester? >> they didn't break down their actual reasons. but it seemed the far majority was for recreational use. you find actually women who smoke marijuana when they're not pregnant actually tend to continue it during their pregnancy and a lot of them feel they state because they think it is safe. ainsley: i was shocked by this. >> think about it though as we continue t legalize marijuana people are
equating it must be safe. people using it during cancer treatment nausea and ann arbonausea associated with pregnancy bottom line we don't know what it will do to the baby. the thc harmful component of marijuana that effects fetal development. we know it effects brain development and there are long-term sequela. meaning children whose mothers smoke marijuana while they are pregnant tend to have sometimes they have more difficulty learning, they have attention deficits and they actually have increased risk of smoking marijuana themselves. ainsley: don't do it you say. >> absolutely not. ainsley: thanks, dr. saphier. >> thank you. ainsley: was there really spying happening on donald trump's 2016 campaign? >> we're trying to find out whether or not they actually listened in on my calls. that will be the -- that would be the ultimate. we will see what happens. ainsley: now the doj is looking into it and jason chaffetz is sounding off. that's next. ♪ ♪

not far from where u.s. officials say iran attacked two oil tankers in the gulf of oman last week and four others last month. shoot-down of unmanned state-of-the-art drone took place two days after acting secretary of defense patrick shanihan resigned. mark esper took over monday night. he spoke to sean hannity about an hour 1/2 after the drone was shot down. >> i worry about iranian proxy wars and terror, tell me your concerns. >> don't worry about a thing. everything is under control. don't worry about a thing. iran is much different country. much different from today before i took over. when i took over it looking like there was no stopping them. reporter: it can fly 50,000 feet in the air. it is used to spy on iranian military communications and track shipping in the waterways. each drone cost up to $180 million. two u.s. drones have been shot down in the region last month.
guys. steve: lucas, quick question, it would be really easy for the u.s. military to release gps data to show exactly where it was when it was shot down but at the same time it is a spy drone. we probably don't want to spill a lot of secrets regarding that? reporter: that's correct. this is 180 million-dollar piece of equipment. it is used to track shipping. it is used to eavesdrop on iranian communications. the race is on to get the wreckage before iranians there. ainsley: nice to see video coincide. when we think of drones we think of something small you can buy on amazon. steve: sharper image. reporter: this is the size of a 737 jet, guys. ainsley: very expensive. ed: been on the story all night. email from him at 1:00 a.m. first reporting this. he has been on it all night.
we appreciate his reporting. look, the context iran has been promising within days they will start enriching uranium at nuclear capacities basically. this is serious stuff. ainsley: not part of the deal. ed: making a lot of other noises recently. some believe because of president trump's maximum pressure campaign. the sanctions are biting their economy. steve: they are indeed. the lewk cast playing sound bite of the president speaking to sean hannity on the channel during a wide-ranging interview. at one point the president was talking about how our department of justices looking into, well, let me let the president explain. >> we're trying to find out whether or not they actually listened in on my calls. that will be the, that would be the ultimate. we'll see what happened. if they spied on my campaign and they may have, it will be one of the great revelations in the history of this country. and i will tell you, it's going
to be very interesting. i think we're going to find out. can you imagine if it were the other way around and i spied on president obama's campaign? could you imagine what the repercussions would be or i spied on crooked hillary's campaign? can you imagine what the repercussions would be? ed: we can imagine in part. remember when the president first tweeted in back in march of 2017 something like this may have happened? steve: he said he had been wiretapped in trump tower. ed: you heard democrats freak out, this is crazy talk. nothing like this could have ever happened. let's see. it is being investigated. >> we know it happened to carter page. we know he was surveyed based on fisa warrant. a lot of people are not trusting what was going on behind the scenes. finally pulling back the curtain a little bit at a time. it will be interesting to see what the doj, what they discover, what happens in the horowitz report.
hopefully we'll get to the bottom of it. steve: we heard from attorney general bill barr, he said i asked a lot of questions about the surveillance and he was not satisfied with the answers from the people at the department of justice and the fbi. that is why we're going where we are. jason chaffetz, who used to be the chairman of the house oversight committee said the president's concerns justified. >> well the president has deep concerns and rightfully so remember it was director comey who said they don't do sneaky stuff and they found out they do sneaky stuff. director comey said they don't do leaking. we no definitely they do do leaking. his deputy, andrew mccabe was fired for cause. now that the inspector general is about to issue his report, we're about to find out if the president was right. ed: he is certainly right there are tough questions here to be answered but i got to wonder what in the world is going on? we've been hearing about the
justice department inspector general, the report may be out in may and then june. june is almost over. there are battles behind the scenes what is in the report? are people like james comey who are nervous about it. steve: at the same time, ed, it was within the last month i believe the attorney general named john durham. ed: from connecticut. steve: u.s. attorney from connecticut to be part of the team. ed: maybe that could have complicated matters legally in terms of jurisdictions and what not. ainsley: everyone is curious to find out, you want them to take their time to get it right. steve: meanwhile -- ainsley: we remember when aoc, when alexandria ocasio-cortez said that she was comparing the border what is happening down on the boarder to concentration camps. she is doubling down. not apologizing. a lot of people are upset with that. an emotional issue. she tweeted this out. dhs ripped thousands of children in their parents put them in cages with inhumane conditions. they call them dog pounds and freezers. i will never apologize calling
camps what they are. if makes you uncomfortable fight the camps, not the nomenclature. steve: the part people are upset, she referred to them calling them concentration cams. that the united states is running concentration camps on southern border. nancy pelosi was asked about it yesterday. keep in mind in the past apparently had some coverses with aoc about some of the things she has said. has she talked to her so far? listen to this. >> so understand that while republicans have no interest in holding the president accountable for his words, they will misrepresent anything that you say just, if you have one word in the sentence that they can exploit. ed: seems to be giving her cover, giving her a pass. giving aoc. ainsley: they will pick apart one word? a phrase, concentration camp. ed: republicans were quoting her directly. interesting, bill de blasio democratic mayor, maybe he as axe to grind, running for
president, he wants to get his name out there. he called out aoc here is what she said. >> were you uncomfortable with the way alexandria ocasio-cortez compared what is going on down on boardwer concentration camps? some people took offense. wait a minute. this gets at language. >> i respect her greatly. i feel very close to her in terms of philosophy. of course she was wrong, you cannot compare what nazis did in concentration cams. ainsley: he represents new york, our mayor. nancy pelosi says democrats need to be careful. they represent certain districts. she is a new yorker and the jewish community relations council of new york said we are deeply disturbed by her language. steve: nancy pelosi also said i haven't spoken to her about that. saw the story on the news. not up to date. lawrence jones was with us about an hour ago. he said these comments, irresponsible. >> this is what the democrats do though. they take these extremist positions. they try to they cherry-pick hi.

bret, good morning to you. you say you feel this particular drone was definitely in international airspace even though iranians say, hey, it was right over us? >> absolutely. that is typical iranians lying where our forces are. they did this when they captured some of our naval forces acted if we were in iranian warts. this type of drone, we would not operate this drone within iranian airspace. one, because the tensions are so high and two, because it is not really a stealth drone in terms of what governments are able to find. it can easily be picked up by radar. it is easy to shoot these things down. they loiter at speeds of 100 miles per hour. we're not talking about a fighter jet. we absolutely would not operate this within iranian territory but at the same time, the camera is so powerful on this drone we would be able to operate it in international waters still peeking into iran. that is potentially the case here. ainsley: bret, obviously we're looking at pictures. these are remarkable aircraft.
steve: giant. ainsley: $180 million some these costs. what exactly are their capabilities? what do they do for our country? >> absolutely. my understanding this was mq-4 made by northrop grumman. sits at high altitudes. i used these during my time in service for intelligence collection. what it does it has a powerful camera that can capture massive amounts of imagery at a single moment. you condition fly over a country and with click of a button capture hundreds of images. one flyover can look at 2,000 square miles of terrain. we're able to see exactly what iran is doing with this type of technology. one of the most expensive in our arsenal for sure. that is why i think this is very serious escalation. it warrant definitely a response here from our forces. ed: you say it's a serious escalation. is it an act of war? >> in my opinion iranian
hard-liners have been at war with us for years. they're currently at war with us. typically they haven't been been so-so overt bit. this is one first times recently where they actually hit a u.s. property. that means they probably have a different type of calculus but they have been at war with us for years. they only understand one thing, that is power. the fact that we put some very significant sanctions on them, they are hurting and losing control, losing power. president gave them two options, that is tonight and negotiate. iran can culture it is not to negotiate. they do want to fight. at the same time they know they can't go head-to-head with our forces. they will be deceptive about it. they will say we're the ones antagonizing but the fact is we know through our intelligence services that the iranians are conducting these attacks and that they're trying to create chaos in the region. steve: bret, last week the military released data, images showing they said iranians taking one of the magnetic mines
off the side of one of the tankers. at the same time the military could reveal through gps data, stuff like that, exactly where this drone was when it was shot down but will they? because it's a surveillance drone. a lot of details are secret. ainsley: and will they be able to recover it? >> sure i think they could do that in this case, showing location of the drone isn't necessarily classified especially considering that we do need to expose what the iranians are doing but at the same time i'm not sure people would believe it. that is the problem here. iran has done such a good job acting as if we're the ones that are the aggressors, that we're flying in iranian territory. even if we released the gps data, it wouldn't necessarily convince people already not convinced bit. same thing with the photos of the oil tankers. clear the iranians are involved but people saying it is a false flag operation. ainsley: yes or not, will we recover it? >> yes, we'll recover it.

victim. he basically said this reparations is the extraction of money from people who were never slaves to be given, never slave owners to be given to people never slaves. it was 150 years ago. it is too long ago. perfectly common sense cal, logical argument. he said today's problems, for example, the problem of homicide, the number one preventable cause of death for young black men is homicide. these are the kinds of things we ought to address. bad underperforming schools. these are the kind of things we ought to address. to put time, effort, attention and money on trying to rectify something that happened 150 years ago doesn't make a whole lot of sense today. perfectly logical. the guy got booed. beyond getting booed, the chair, steven cohen, he said presumptive. i think he said he was presumptuous. how condescending. ainsley: a democrat said black people don't need another apology. we need safer neighborhoods, better schools, less punitive
