tv Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner FOX News August 27, 2019 10:00am-11:00am PDT
harder for them to run based on the way they've been attacked. >> kennedy: you were fantastic. thank you, robert wolf. back on the couch at noon tomorrow. here's shannon and for harris. >> shannon: we begin this hour with a fox news alert. drugmaker johnson & johnson going to appeal after being slapped with more than half a billion dollars in penalties for its role in the opioid crisis. this is "outnumbered overtime." i'm shannon bream in for harris faulkner. an oklahoma judge finding johnson & johnson liable for stoking the opioid crisis in the state and ordering the company to pay $572 million. the bombshell ruling being watched closely as 2,000 other pending lawsuits are set to be heard. an attorney for the drugmaker slamming the decision. >> we are disappointed and disagree with the judges' decision. we believe it is flawed. johnson & johnson did not cause
the opioid abuse crisis. we have many strong grounds for appeal, and we intend to pursue those vigorously. >> shannon: casey stegall is live in dallas with the latest. hey, casey. >> a, shannon. a landmark case on several levels not only did this judge in oklahoma rule against pharmaceutical giant johnson & johnson. he went on to say that he found there was in fact this evidence to suggest that the drugmaker helped fuel the state's opioid epidemic. the attorney general of oklahoma says this verdict means his team was successful in proving how johnson & johnson used "pseudoscience and deceptive marketing practices" downplaying how addictive prescription painkillers were, and furthermore pushing doctors to prescribe more just to boost
profits." leaving a deadly and destructive path of addiction in its wake." >> what we show during our seven week trial, and what the judge confirmed today, is what we know now for certain. johnson & johnson was the kingpin behind the nation's ongoing opioid crisis. >> as you said, the drugmaker immediately said that it would appeal that ruling. lawyers representing johnson & johnson all along argue their company did not cause the opioid crisis, saying it in fact followed the u.s. food and drug administration and the drug enforcement agency's own guidelines back in 2009 when it came to the marketing of opioids. >> the decision violates well-established constitutional principles, including due process of law. at bottom, the decision is fundamentally unfair.
>> now, this was the nation's first civil case holding a pharmaceutical company partially accountable for the addiction to opioids. of course, as you said, it sets this legal precedent now for all of the other pending cases against other opioid manufacturers and distributors, like cvs, walgreens, and walmarts. shannon? 's? >> shannon: casey stegall in dallas, thank you several states have been hurt dominic hit hard by this crisis, including west virginia, which has the nation's highest death rate from opioid overdoses. joining us now, west virginia, west virginia attorney general patrick morrissey company just days ago filed lawsuits against opioid makers, including johnson & johnson. mr. attorney general, thanks for your time today. >> thanks for having me, i appreciate it. if you want to have to ask about this editorial board piece today in the wall street journal, calling this a shakedown. that the way the public nuisance law was used here versus product liability raises questions about
johnson & johnson was the right target in these cases. >> i think people have to take a step back and realize that there should be accountability throughout the pharmaceutical supply channel. there is certainly culpability with pharmaceutical manufacturers because of the representations that are made. you saw that made an oklahoma and you will begin to see that of the next year or so. there is a role for the wholesalers, the pharmacies, the prescribers. all of those entities bear some responsibility for the problems we have. in the federal government itself bear some responsibility. as you know, the dea had approved an ever-increasing number of pills. that was part of the problem. i think when we look at it and step back, people see that manufacturers have a role to play in fixing this problem that they did help to create. but it's not as simple to say that only one company or one entity is responsible for everything. >> shannon: as "the wall street journal" points out, johnson & johnson has less than 1% of the legal opioid
market in oklahoma. the fda has approved the drugs and the warnings on the packages. these drugs are still legal there in oklahoma. with that in mind, johnson & johnson clearly is saying that they are not the right target. this was an improper ruling. they are not going to settle. which i think is what a lot of people thought might happen as a result of this verdict. they said they will appeal it. how do you think this plays out in light of these facts? >> i think we will be very aggressive because we believe the companies dramatically underplayed the addictive tendencies of these products. there are misrepresentations that we believe we will be able to prove in court. once again, that represents one piece of the equation. not the entirety of it. johnson & johnson is a very large player. purdue pharma, there are a lot of companies. i want to make sure that we have our day in court, as well. west virginia has really been hit very hard by this opioid crisis. our goal is to hold everyone responsible.
the manufacturers play an important role. we are not saying the only role. prescribers still prescribed, pharmacy still dispense, wholesalers transport. but manufacturers did make it and helped to see not only prescribers but consumers about the nature of the products. >> shannon: a whopping 68.7% of drug overdose deaths in 2018 involved opioids. we know there are a lot of your things out there on the market. we see in the introduction of dangerous things like sentinel and others that have no complicated and exacerbated this problem. as you note and many of these lawsuits point out, a number of people who became addicted or overdosed started, as many of us, a neighbor, friend, family member, someone who was prescribed this legally. do you feel in the wake of what has happened that there are enough safeguards in place to send the problem moving forward? >> no, not yet. i will note this -- when people start talking about what their market share is, i think you hit the nail on the head. a lot of these pain pills served
as the gateway in. a lot of people got hooked on these prescription pain pills. then they went on, they went to win meth, heroin. but for the pintos going in, we wouldn't get to some of those illicit products. there is room for more change. i am proud to say we've worked closely with the trump administration to be able to fundamentally change the natural drug quota system. the volume of pain pills i could be produced, way down over the last few years. we've been a big part of that. i think we need more work, more focused efforts. not only to hold people accountable, make sure we make people better in the head and the heart. the treatment has to follow in order to move to the next level. you need enforcement, treatment, education, and you need to have a broad approach. it's got to be holistic. because everyone needs to be
part of the process. for the manufacturers to say that they shouldn't be, i think it's not proper. there is one important piece of the very complicated occasion. >> shannon: attorney general patrick morrissey, we will track your cases, as well. thanks for your time today. >> thanks so much. >> shannon: a hearing involving jeffrey epstein sex trafficking case repping opponents go. prosecutors filed a motion to dismiss the criminal indictment against a late financier. but the civil case is just wrapping up. bryan llenas' live outside u.s. district court in manhattan with the very latest. hi, bryan. >> hi a commission. good afternoon. about two dozen alleged sexual abuse victims of jeffrey epstein appeared in court today. 16 of these women choosing to stand up in front of the judge and share their story. several were emotional as they described how epstein not only rob them of their innocence but also rob them of a chance for justice in his apparent suicide. look at -- here is just some of what they said. court has just adjourned but we have snippets of what some of
these accusers said in court. courtney wild fighting back tears said, "i feel very angry and sad that justice hasn't ever been served. he robbed me of a day in court, and for that he is a coward." accusers virginia giuffre said, "epstein is no longer alive but today is not about his death. it's about how he lived. the reckoning must continue so others will be brought to justice." another accusers said, "i'm filled with self-hatred in lima doesn't believe from a victim. closer to set up seamless strategic and how he slowly manipulated young girls. at least three accusers inside today directly named his former girlfriend, ghislaine maxwell, as his coconspirator. prosecutors confirmed in court today that inquiries into coconspirators are ongoing. and will continue, sing distancing charges against epstein "in no way prohibit or inhibit the government's ongoing investigation into other potential coconspirators, nor
does it prevent the bringing of a new case in the future." after scenes defense attorney told the judge they have a profound problem, by the way, with the medical examiner findings that epstein died in a suicide by hanging in his jail cell. they said they believe his injuries were "more consistent with assault," and they did not see a suicidal person when they last by him. shannon, today's hearing is unusual. judge richard berman did not have to have a hearing at all. that he allowed all parties to speak in the spirit of transparency. at least one lawyer was emotional as he sank to the judge for allowing these women, for giving them an opportunity to speak out despite epstein's suicide. shannon? >> shannon: bryan llenas there at the court. thank you so much. the number of arrests by new york city police officers reportedly down after the firing of the officer involved in eric garner's death. what does it mean? plus, the democratic field

>> shannon: purcell's president says the country will reject millions of dollars in aid from g7 nations to help fight racing fighter dog fighters in the amazon, unless french president emmanuel macron apologizes for insulting him. the two leaders have been locked in a bitter feud after macron called the fire is an international crisis. the booze the leader accusing him of disrespect in the country's sovereignty. canada and britain have pledged additional financial support, but it's unclear whether brazil will accept any of the help.
frustrations running high at several presidential candidates call out the dnc over its requirements for the next presidential debate stage in september. that of tomorrow's qualifying deadline, only ten candidates have reached 130,000 unique donations and scored 2% or higher in four the ansi approved polls. that means the rest of the field could miss out on an opportunity to put the american voter on time time television paid during the night, one of the candidates who could miss the expert, john delaney. you've seen them in the two coats previous. good to have you here. we talked about this. i talked with your wife about this, too. the way you are running your campaign is to be more centrist and talk about solutions. you're not a bomb forward. you don't get the headlines which then bring the donations and all of the attention that goes along with it. how are you feeling going into this next debate? that you probably won't be on the stage? >> we feel fine. i think, shannon, this campaign where election is really starting in many ways. most americans are starting to dial in. our campaign, which is about telling the truth and actually
come as you said, putting forth real solutions to help hardworking americans. that's what this country needs. i'm fully committed to it. >> shannon: has the world change, the political environment, and 2019? you been called out by other contenders on the stage. when you cautioned them, that we can't promise the make and people all kinds of things. that we can't pay for or delivered. i think of elizabeth warren reaching out and saying, "why are we talking about what we can't do?" the other candidates are proposing much more radical ideas and plans. >> thus far, that's been what has sold. the more extreme things to come up with, the more attention you get. but we all know that's not what the american people need. the american people need a leader who can actually bring us together and start solving these problems. actually building the better future that we all know is available to us as americans. but we have to work together. this politics of division, i think it's the string the country. not so we feel better about ourselves, but so we can actually start solving these
problems. we can be building infrastructure. we can create more affordable housing, create jobs and all these communities around the country. doing things that matter. we have to put forth real solutions print out some of these impossible promises folks are putting forth. if you do you think your candidacy like yours can break through or that you can hold on so you can make that case of the american people? this day and age you have to get in there and rough it up and tussle in order to get everyone's attention. >> you have to rub it up and tussle. i've been out there fighting and telling the truth. i was the first person to say this notion of making private insurance illegal is a terrible idea. i was actually booed for it. >> shannon: i remember! >> if you notice, all the democratic candidates are backing away from it. i think elizabeth warren will soon back in may, too. >> shannon: you do? >> yeah, i fix it. bernie sanders has even backed away from it. that's the importance of a primary. a battle of ideas. i think everyone should have health care is a basic right,
but i don't think we should get there by making private insurance illegal. that's terrifying idea. i think this campaign will start going our way. more americans start focusing on the race, most of those americans want problem solvers. they don't want people who are going to run on the extremes. they want people who will solve problems. that's what i'm running on. >> shannon: as we inched toward the iowa caucus, some candidates are talking about doubling down on president trump. attacks on his character. could that negativity also alienate some voters who are sick of the mudslinging? is one of those things we report all the time, every cycle people say they hate negative ads, but we report that they seem to work. but where do you find yourself n that process? i'm an optimist by nature. i'm an entrepreneur. before he ran for congress i started to coax businesses from scratch, create thousands of jobs. so i'm a builder by nature. i like focusing on the future and talking about the things we can do together. that doesn't mean you don't call out bad behavior. i've called out president trump for what i consider to be very
bad behavior on the whole bunch of issues. that doesn't mean i don't call out my opponents are bad ideas. things that don't make sense. like this notion of being kind of an isolationist, like the president is. a lot of democrats are talking about what's going on in the amazon. he opened with it. in reality, that is directly related to trade. the fact that u.s. farmers can sell soybeans to china has created an opportunity for brazil to sell soybeans to china. as a result, farmers are tearing down the amazon. to grow soybeans. what democrats have to understand is that it's not the right answer in any of these issues we care about. >> shannon: we know you're very aimed at centrist and solution-oriented policy. we will see if you stick around long enough. it's a specific strategy. great to have you. thank you so much for coming in today. federal prosecutors to be nearing a decision on whether or not to indict former fbi acting

>> shannon: puerto rico's governor declaring a state of emergency, as tropical storm dorian turns closer and closer. forecasts call for it to be near hurricane strength when it dissents on the island on wednesday. it is expected to pound puerto rico with rain and heavy winds per the governor warning people to seek shelter. just two years ago, hurricane maria devastated puerto rico, reportedly killing more than 2900 people. federal prosecutors appear to be closer to making a decision on whether or not to indict former acting fbi director andrew mccabe. he is accused of lying to investigators. that comes as we await inspector general michael horowitz's report on the origins of the rush appropriate a busy time. efrain averages live in washington to update us. hey, catherine. >> shannon, a source close to the
matter tells fox news that they appear close to the decision whether to charge mccabe with lying to federal investigators. "the new york times" first reported that mccabe's legal team met last week with a deputy attorney general and the u.s. attorney here in washington. the justice department declined to comment, but these meetings are typically used by the defense in a last-ditch effort to argue against their client's indictment. mccabe, a frequent target of the president, was fired last year after the justice department inspector general, michael e horowitz, found he lacked candor under oath. over his role in the media leak about the fbi clinton foundation investigation. it turns out a key witness against mccabe in the ig case was former fbi director james comey, who told investigators the leak was problematic. the leak confirmed the existence of the fbi investigation into the clinton foundation, something comey claimed he had hoped to avoid. two weeks ago, mccabe file has 48-page lawsuit against the fbi and justice department for wrongful termination. more recently he joined cnn as a
contributor. earlier this year he told a network of the allegations against him are false. >> i never lied or deliberately misled anyone, not in the ig office, not in the fbi, and certainly never a director of the fbi under any circumstances at any time. speak of his legal team did not respond for our request for comment. on lying to federal investigators, which is a violation, or lack of candor under oath, former agents tells fox news that the fbi is held to a higher standard because they are of course the one to enforce the law, shannon. >> shannon: right. catherine herridge in washington, thank you very much. the number of arrests and criminal summons held by the nypd last week i've reportedly plummeted. sources telling "the new york post"'s it's the "pantaleo effect." after the date officer pantaleo was fired in his role of the death of eric garner. during me to discussed,
dr. darrin porcher, retired nypd lieutenant, and professor at pace university. great to have you both with us, gentlemen. doctor, it was a review. i talked to a former officer last night you said morel is really dumb. these guys, the ones who aren't bad cops. they try to keep it clean every day and protect this community. they are very worried about getting in trouble, subdued by doing their job. is that a legitimate >> that is which in it. we go back with what happened in ferguson. there was a term referred to as the "ferguson effects." you had "deep policing" taking effect. if we move back to where we are right now, then you see this regressive, quantitative statistic in terms of summonses and arrests. but i believe this is temporary. the truth of the matter is police officers are public servants. it's a matter of time before the supervisory matrix kicks in, the officers are supervised accordingly, and you will get the numbers up to where they are supposed to be. i don't think this is something we need to look at as an element
of danger coming down the line in terms of a crime increase. but the truth of the matter is, it's something that is here and something we really need to take note of in connection with the morale of the officers. we blame mayor pete de blasio as a result. >> shannon: we hear them saying the mayor doesn't have their back. we are worried about the police commissioner who said it was a difficult choice to have to follow through with the firing in the pantaleo case. he said, "i get it. if i was a cop right now on the beat i would be upset, too, but i'm trying to make the best decision." >> mayor bill de blasio has placed a target on every single office of the nypd saying they might be next. the morale is shot because they are concerned and their hesitating pair that's a big problem. they are hesitating on the job. if they do something even slightly mistaken or wrong, or even critical, their necks will be on the place mat for them to be chopped. what you have instead is you
have cops out there being proactive come out there in society, stuff and from committing the crimes in the first place. instead of what our mayor wants, that he wants them to be reactive. instead being out there and waiting for the shooting to happen, wait for the crime to happen, then respond. that's a strong. >> shannon: talk about reactive, a few weeks back across the country people are really disturbed to see these officers here in new york have people throwing water buckets and water on them. keeping their composure and walking away from that, i think a lot of us feel like our tempers would not have done as well in that situation. they are facing a lot of different pressures right now. >> i totally agree. i'm diametrically opposed to how the officers handle that. if that was the situation, that was a must-arrest situation. they should have turned around and taking appropriate action. what happens is the public is protected by police officers. if they feel the police are not willing to take action when they themselves are the target of this, it raises the question of
how protective they are as a society. >> shannon: is that a directive they've been given, a guidance that they've been given? to turn the other cheek and keep walking? >> that is not something you've been given. i want to say that mayor de blasio's protocol from city hall has been something that has dictated, as my counterpart stated. "let's take your regressive action as opposed to a proactive action." be one final word? >> what mayor de blasio and a lot of high-ups forget, to prevent a society from spiraling into chaos, it's that thin blue line of law enforcement that protects us each and every day. >> shannon: the vast majority of these folks are good people who choose to go into this profession and put themselves into this danger every day. we have great respect for those guys, and women. with any industry there are bad actors. they have to be rooted out. for the rest of them, the vast majority, we thank you. thank you, gentlemen. joe biden's campaign, denying the candidate has locked the front runner status after new polls show that race shifting to

>> shannon: joe biden's campaign pushing back after this recent monmouth university poll showed him in a three-way tie with elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. the biden camp calling that poll an outlier and pointing to the real clear politics average of a whole bunch of polls which have consistently shown the former vice president well ahead of his competitors. judy miller as an adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute for policy research and a fox news contributor. kevin mccullough, a radio host would save. welcome to your we talked about this last hour, fox's polling showed an enormous lead for senator warren over the last few months. now to this weekend, judy, we have the one to punch with her and the crowds are showing up. much of a threat to you think she is? >> i think she's a threat, but if i were the vice president, i would -- a former vice president -- i be much more worried abouts
consistently underrated in the media. that is bernie sanders. his durability, and sustainability, his likability. his beats were in and biden in these polls, and biden has been falling since february. before the debates. but the media has written him off as last election's story. that's a mistake if you look at the numbers. >> shannon: re and senator warren pulling from the same pool? the same ideas and philosophies. it is likely to be the same-footer pool? >> let's talk about the monmouth pole, you got both of them at 20% each. you've got joe biden at 19%. one of them drops south. all of the sudden, biden -- you know, i think biden has played the entire campaign wrong. he has tried to capitulate to the progressive stream that has party is floating along with her now.
he needs to have a chance the general election, he chose to dive in with both feet and go as far left as he could. i think you now just kind of looks like one of the other ones that are running. he's not as good at being the far left candidate as warren or sanders, either one, r. if they are in the same team is one of them jumped if they are on the same tame >> shannon: the hyde amendment, it seems like he felt under enormous pressure to do that. i want to play something for the from mike pence, he talks about the field and where they are going. here's what he says. >> to be honest with you, i never thought i'd see a group of democratic candidates this liberal in my lifetime. you have candidates that are advocating policies that literally would crush the american economy. higher taxes, medicare for all. the green new deal. the combination of these literally would place trillions of dollars of burden on the american people. >> shannon: that seems to be the message come with us in ministry and is looking for as a
set up. how they want to clarify them, classify them. the president continue to refer to aoc plus three. those are the folks that are now running the democratic party. they want to tarry them with this far left position. >> exactly. that is the republican strategy, to make those four women in the face of the democratic party. once again, look at the polls. young voters. the biggest group coming on to our voting stage since the baby boomers. they are not frightened by the word "socialist." they think of socialist as democratic socialists like canada, sweden, germany. they are not frightened of it. the energy of the party is there. even though i am a centrist independent, and i'm likely to go either way, i see where the energy in the democratic party is. it is with the younger people, and they are overwhelmingly for bernie sanders. they are not even for warren. they are certainly not for
joe biden. his numbers are low. they are falling and they've been falling for months. >> shannon: how does president trump pitch that group, or does he? >> the parties raising their money, the enthusiasm is low, they are barely breaking $7 million the last cycle. her public and strip of that. in addition to that, trump has got all that money in the bank that he's not having to spend right now. and he won't. he didn't spend it in 2016. he will hold these rallies and do his typical grassroots thing. last thing, president obama's going back out on the trail for them, and that's just not where they are at right now. there with the bernie bros. they got cheated in 2016. >> don't ask me when i heard them on the floor of the dnc, they haven't gone anywhere. thank you both, could have have you. two children, several heard after a stabbing suspect stole a police cruiser in dayton, ohio, and crashed into parked cars with people inside. please are set to provide

riverside police officer to use the suspect. still, he took off in the vehicle. you can see he went about a quarter-mile in reverse with the door open before turning around and continuing the chase, which would ultimately end at the dayton library. the crash that ended the chase involved a van filled with children. two of those children were killed, 11 people were extricated from damaged cars. according to police, ten people were hospitalized. that includes the suspect. at some point, either in the chase for the crash were during the incident, the suspect was injured. we are awaiting details from police. shannon? >> shannon: mike tobin, thank you very much. coming up, actress lori loughlin that her husband due in court for that college bribery scandal case. we have more lives. it's a sit-up, banana! bend at the waist! i'm tryin'! keep it up. you'll get there. whoa-hoa-hoa! 30 grams of protein, and one gram of sugar. ensure max protein.

"your attorneys will be prohibited from fully investigating, producing, and developing evidence that would be favorable to you if that same evidence may implicate your coconspirator spouse." the government could also ask questions regarding the representation of cooperating witnesses that have pled guilty related to the college admission scandal. and potentially raise some concerns regarding the firm 'his previous work with the university of southern california and prior unrelated cases. usc is this school that lori loughlin and mossimo giannulli are accused of defrauding. prosecutors say they paid the ringleader some $500,000 to bribe coaches and administrators, and create phony athletic profiles to get their daughters into the college, as recruited members of the crew team although neither teen was ever a rower. lori loughlin and mossimo giannulli face up to 40
