abandoning the american people and come 2020 they won't forget it. >> what democrats have done overall is negative for our country but for republicans it energized our base, raised $15 million since this started, we are seeing massive enthusiasm, our volunteers are energized, they recognize the democrat party, in the end little help us win the election but bad for our country, but nancy jumped the gun, said to see adam schiff make a false statement and a fictional opening statement in something as serious as impeachment inquiry. this is not what the american people want. they want washington to work for them, donald trump has done that day in and day out and democrats, all they've done is obstruct, resist and try to investigate and they have done nothing to help the american people that they represent. >> the house won't be back in session for another two weeks, when impeachment is expected to be front and center. some other headlines including the nypd officer who died while

increase in their wealth, the bottom half of america has seen a decline in their wealth. if you work at a company where your ceo makes 500 times more than you do you have a right to be outraged. >> reporter: sanders's plan would apply to company's with revenue of $100 million. how about sports, the steelers score their first win of the season. monday night football. >> how about it, touchdown steelers! >> with a little flip and a little dance in the end zone, the steelers go to a 27-3 -- over the cincinnati bengals who dropped to 0-numfour. as one point they were probably student athletes and say could soon be paid under a new law in california, gavin newsom signing

to be done in that respect but this is a step in the right direction. >> not everyone is on board including the ncaa which issued the following, quote, this new law is creating confusion for current and future student athletes, coaches, administrators and campuses, not just in california. we will consider next steps in california while our members move forward with ongoing efforts to make adjustments to ncaa name, image and likeness rules that are realistic in modern society and tied to higher education. on foxbusiness mark cuban said this law could be the deathknell of the ncaa. >> the ncaa particularly as applies to football, you may see third parties come in with a lot of money and this is about the cash now. >> despite the backlash california is not alone in this, new york, florida, colorado and south carolina could see similar proposals and this is headed one place, court.
>> we want to hear what everybody has to say about it, great to have you with us. the time is 10 minutes after the top of the hour. first ukraine and now the new york times accusing the president of pressuring australia to dig deep on biden. but that is not exactly how it went down. i democrats getting that desperate dq someone who used to work for the president ways in up next. and san francisco getting rid of those boulders brought into battle the homeless crisis because they weren't big enough. what happens now? ♪ we will we will rock you ♪ we will we will rock you ♪
>> ukraine and now australia. the new york times accusing donald trump of pressing the australian prime minister to investigate the origins of the russia probe but now we are learning that is not exactly what happened. joining me to discuss is senior advisor john elliott. we appreciate it. let's begin with that, this from the new york times report where they say mister trump's discussion with the prime minister shows the president using high-level diplomacy to advance his personal political interests but we can flash back to donald trump himself in may where he promised to get to the bottom of the russia hoax and what happened in 2016. listen to what he said in may. >> i hope he looks at the uk and hope it looks at australia and i hope you looks at ukraine. i hope you looks at everything
because there was a hoax that was perpetrated on our country. shannon: so loud and clear for everyone to hear what he was going to do and then days after that we had this excerpt from the australian embassy offering to help the us and its probe so they made the offer shortly after donald trump made those comments. what do you make of this? >> exactly right. this is -- i've never seen such dishonest reporting from what used to be a good newspaper like the new york times and other outlets that are just been done always this been of breathless spinoff democratic operatives that always want -- anything the president does painted in the worst light, a perfectly appropriate phone call with the president is reaching out to his counterpart to lay the groundwork to let attorney general bar do his job and taken in the worst spin. you think reporters would be more honest because this is that a level we have never seen in
this town. heather: any wrongdoing on the part of the president or attorney general bar in any of this? >> absolutely not. the attorney general is working with john durham and he has full license to look top to bottom in to any type of issues around the 2016 election and setting up cooperation with foreign governments, working with the deep state. it is aboveboard for ag bar to talk to his counterpart and you have to have the president talk to heads of state of those countries. it is plain and aboveboard. >> you've been a while in administration, is the standard operating procedure? >> i have been around, i was a senior senate staffer during the
clinton impeachment trial about 20 years ago and low and behold back then you actually had both parties working together because he had a serious report, the can of starr report and pretty responsible reporting by the new york times and others. the way we are fallen in 20 years, i hope there is a way we can get it back because this is very dishonest him of the deep state going after this president because they didn't like the outcome of the 2016 election. >> it doesn't do a disservice the most? >> it does a disservice to the voters, the voters elected this president overwhelmingly with an electoral college mandate to get stuff done whether it comes to lowering taxes, when it comes to strengthening our defense, taking care of our veterans and he has done a great job at that and he has been shipped at every single from even before he was sworn in office, plans to lay a trap for impeachment and they are picking up whatever they can and trying to throw it at the president and the best news is it is not going to work because the american people see through it.
>> a 2 week hiatus, they are going to talk about impeachment and a lot of work needs to be done, thank you for joining us, appreciate your insight. the time is 18 after the top of the hour. have you heard kamala harris and hillary clinton just teamed up in a big way, their partnership is rocking the internet. carly shimkus has the stories trending for you this morning up next. here, it all starts with a simple...

maybe we first focus on creating in party cohesion so we don't beat ourselves again. negative reaction even from democrats. democratic president of candidates going wild over impeachment but it could backfire if this inquiry goes to 2020 which is what nancy pelosi doesn't want to have happen. shannon: she keeps changing her mind based on who is in her ear. let's talk hillary clinton talking about bernie sanders, hillary clinton mocking her email scandal with kamala harris. carley: the trump administration continuing his efforts to investigate hillary clinton's email server and that spark this friendly twitter exchange between kamala harris and hillary clinton starting when kamala harris tweeted hillary clinton served our country with
distinction and always put our country first, something trump knows nothing about and clinton responded with this sarcastic tweet saying but my emails! not a lot of conservatives laughing about this, one person tweeting you mean the subpoenaed emails you illegally destroyed. another twitter user says we haven't forgotten about them either. more to come apparently on hillary clinton's private email server. >> he is getting back in the news. some conspiracy theory about what -- i don't know. thank you so much. here is the story we want to bring you. the time is 26 after the top of the hour. 33 officers killed in the line of duty so far this year. apparently the new york times thinks police are the problem.

the widow, the weakest, the survivors and he makes a promise that if we stand with them, so too will god stand with us. - [narrator] please open your heart and act now. you can save lives and honor god by helping elderly jews in dire need in the former soviet union. your gift today of just $25 will rush an emergency survival package to a person in desperate need of food, medicine, water and heating fuel. visit our website.

i saw this up and coming out after this past weekend, deadly weekend for officers and it was unbelievable and irresponsible. what are your thoughts? >> absolutely ridiculous, crazy and cowardly to put out an op-ed like this damaging the reputation of law enforcement. i feel like in this country it has gone too far. police officers have become the scapegoat of everybody's problems. when you have a problem you call the police and when you are the problem you blame the police and that is what they are doing. it is despicable and if they want their cities to turn around and want crime to stop you better start respecting police, better start respecting them and funding them well. >> not only are they blaming police officers but calling for cuts in funding. a couple portions from the op-ed one warning police officers who primarily put people in cages
are the enforcers of mass incarceration. police are part of the problem, stop investing money, power. and missy in them and another part of the op-ed goes on to say the reality is police filled prisons, they do not help vulnerable populations, they make populations vulnerable. have a former officer what do you say about that? >> this is the verb it in language of cowards. the primary thing we need to be focusing on is changing our communities and that needs to be the responsibility of the police department but here's what it is. don't know why police officers get caught in the middle. politicians are the ones who created the law, citizens break the law and law enforcement is there to enforce the violations there. if you don't want people incarcerated, change the law. make marijuana legal. make these criminal offenses
legal and police won't arrest them. until then what do you expect? if you want the crime to stop you have to stop the perpetrators and that is what law enforcement officers are doing. >> we have seen these videos recently of officers being completely disrespected, doused with water, being yelled and screamed at and bullied. with your experience i know you said when officers are respected that is when you saw the communities you worked in. >> we have to work together like a big family and police officers are there to protect and serve when people get out of line we have to do our job. we want to know what is going on in our community and need people of the community to cooperate and when that happens i've been there. i've been in the streets, when we work together we can do a lot of things positively in the right direction and crime normally goes down but when you have people that hate the police, have this code of not
snitching, making the communities unsafe and making it worse and i don't know why people haven't understood that by this point you should respect the police officers and we can work together and make it happen but if you don't want to do that you will end up with a bad city. >> dangerous for communities and dangerous for officers and as we wrap up i want to bring up a few pictures of the police officers who lost their lives this past weekend. our thoughts and prayers with all their colleagues and family and friends. thank you for joining us. we appreciate your time. the republican national committee pushing back against the impeachment inquiry. a new campaign called stop the madness taking aim at democrats. >> don't know why there aren't uprisings all over this country. >> we will bring the fight. >> they are marching in step. acting like north koreans.

combined with an ultrasound and in extreme cases mris. 3-d mammograms are a little more, a better picture, you can get a better sense of the risk. they don't substitute for the clinical breast exam. all of these are screening tests which means they have no symptoms. and in specific risk factors and ovarian cancer. if you see symptoms or some type of symmetry, dimpling or anything going on around the discharge, that is not screening anymore, and actual symptom needs to be checked out. heather: men should pay attention as well. in case someone saw the study that says there are two -- onion and garlic could lower your risk.
is that true? >> i love garlic. for garlic lovers, there is not enough evidence to say there are standards there. some research comes from puerto rican women and hiring garlic and onion and it seems these women in these studies have lower risk of developing breast cancer. is it related to the garlic and onions or is it people at lower risk with garlic and onions but more evidence, to increase heart disease. there is a link between breast cancer and heart disease. heather: onion and garlic and not get screened. the -- 10 minutes until the top of the hour. she's back and bashing the president again. hillary clinton's latest on the impeachment push. and an sending smile across the internet.
