3:01 am
texas is cleaning up homeless camp right now in the capital city of austin as liberal as it gets in texas. steve: state agencies have moved in after the governor gave local leaders more than a month to come up with a solution to fix the homeless crisis in austin. ainsley: aishah has any is live there in texas where the clean up is now underway. >> that's right. good morning to you steve, brian and ainsley. the cleanup got underway just about an hour ago. we were able to capture video for you. we saw crews out and about escorted by police cleaning up the trash using leaf blowers and a street sweeper. the second part we believe will be to pack up the folks living here as the state steps in and frustration mounts over how the city is handling this crisis. >> we drove in austin and under the underpass we saw a whole tent city. why does that even exist? >> i have literally seen people urinating and
3:02 am
defecating on this sidewalk right here. right there. >> it's not a good look four austin. >> it's thought. it's not. >> just look at the numbers here homelessness growing in homelessness 5 percent from last year. governor greg abbott warning city leaders to straighten things up. but now he is just stepping. in this morning crews will clear away the homeless encampments across town there are a lot of them. the governor says he will not allow to austin to turn into cities like san francisco or l.a. one man i talked to living under the same overpass for three years. he told me, you know what? i'm just going to move to another spot because austin is too good to give up. >> people come from all over the country to come to austin because it's famous. this is a famous place to live on the streets. everybody knows, man, you want to live on the streets go to austin. >> why. >> you don't have to buy food. everybody feeds you. they give you money. you can party.
3:03 am
it's a blast, man. >> meantime the mayor here, mayor adler is focused on housing these folks instead of removing them from their encampments which, again, could start as soon as the sun comes up. back to you. steve: all right. now, aishah sharks the reason the governor is now squaring off against the very progressive city of austin is because they have a law in austin where if it's f. it's a public place you can camp or sleep there any time you want. >> they can have tents. steve: yeah. >> exactly. that's why why a lot of people who live here saw this even more visible because as soon as it happened, people just brought their tents in. and you could see it everywhere. brian: here's what's important, to talk to the people. don't talk in generalities. find out why they are there some of them are chootion to be there. steve: like that guy. brian: some mental illness or drug issues. very small percentage because they can't afford housing.
3:04 am
that was a long time the consensus thought for a while. we have got to start diving into. this thank you so much. ainsley: james dickey texas state g.o.p. chairman he had this analysis about the homeless problem. listen. >> i think the governor is absolutely right. the mayor adler went to san francisco and seattle to try to figure out how to better work with the homeless and better handle the homeless situation and that's like trying to go to venezuela to look for good policy. it is absolutely crazy. that leftist continually believe that if they -- if they just someone with a bigger heart tries the same failed policy over and over again that things will get better, but they don't get better. they get worse. steve: apparently what they are doing is they are not asking people to permanently leave the location, just get out of way while we clean it up. if there is something like there is a mattress there
3:05 am
for health reasons they will cart it off, otherwise leave everybody's stuff there. ainsley: people are going to the bathroom in public areas. and blocking the entrances to their businesses. steve: how did we get to this state affecting so many cities. brian brian local politicians less ideological because they have to do what's practical for the people. and further up the wire until they get to washington. that's when it becomes extremely partisan traditionally. continues to be liberal bastion in one of the fastest growing states in the country, texas, why don't these politicians pivot and say hey, i tried this, but this is more practical. there is not going to be a political price to pay locally. that's what they say about texas. even the democrats tend to be more moderate. ainsley: instead of allowing them to stay there, pick them up, move them to a shelter get on with their life and help them to figure out how they can make money instead of just allowing them to be there. they're human beings. take care of them. steve: they throw a lot of money at it. i don't see how they can
3:06 am
think it's working out safely. meanwhile, let's pivot to washington, d.c. the democrats, if you are watching over the wookdz, the democrats are all about impeachment. and this particular impeachment push all started with that whistleblower who talked about how he had heard about a phone call the president made to the president of ukraine. and it was quid pro quo and promises were made and then it was revealed he hadn't actually heard it. and then we heard from adam schiff we are working out deals to bring the whistleblower here. that fell apart. and then the whistleblower kind of -- we didn't hear about him for a while. and now his attorney is making a deal with republicans in congress. do you know what? we're going to bypass adam schiff. you don't think it's safe with adam schiff we are going to bypass and talk to you directly, republicans. ainsley: we will answer written questions directly. brian: we have offered both committees, majority and minority to have whistleblower answer questions in writing under oath and penalty of perjury.
3:07 am
obviously per house rules g.o.p. is bewould be to dems. we are not. doesn't want anything about his personal background and talk about -- we believe it's a he because "new york times" identified it. what he, his background he will just tell you what he heard from other people. to me, this seems to be an attempt to dominate the sunday shows and change the narrative. it's hard for me to believe republicans would be interested in written questions. ainsley: the whistleblower's attorney goes on to say he doesn't want his identity released because of the safety and what might happen to his family. but then the president is calling for the whistleblower's identity to be revealed and jim jordan said that you can't ignite an impeachment effort and never account for your actions. he said it won't provide sufficient opportunites to probably all the facts in cross-examination if we just let him answer questions. we need to see his face. we need to see his expressions. steve: exactly. jim jordan has already said it's not going to work out. >> but he said this about
3:08 am
whether or not the whistleblower will testify. six weeks ago adam schiff said we need to hear from the whistleblower. we need to have him come testify. schiff has since changed. now he says we don't need to hear from the whistleblower. what has happened in that time frame that changed the chairman's mind? only one thing. we learned that adam schiff's staff had met with the whistleblower and adam schiff didn't tell us. but, again, i think the american people have a right to know who the individual is who started this whole thing. 63 million people voted for donald trump in 2016, they have a right to know what this is all based on and what the democrats are doing. brian: find out the point of view and the background. that factors into the validity of it. the democratic argument is wait a second. this thing has been validated by other people. we assume because they are not allowed behind closed doors. also push back on what they are saying and overarching situation is the republicans accord ing to "the washington post and i don't think it's very much denied. why don't we take a
3:09 am
different tactic. how about i listened to the phone call. i don't love it but it's not impeachable. steve: some say that. brian: you have the whistleblower number one. number two is a fair process and number three is by the way you can analyze as much as you want. this is not impeachment-worthy. polls show the public is getting behind the president the further this gets and less behind the process. steve: it looks so partisan, particularly to the president. he said if shifty adam schiff who is a corrupt politician, who fraud lengthily made up what i said on the call, we remember that from his appearance in front of his committee, if he is allowed to release transcripts of the never trumpers and others that are and were interviewed, he will change the words that were said to suit the dems' purposes. republicans should give their own transcripts of the interviews to contrast schiff's manipulated propaganda. house republicans have nothing to do with shifty's
3:10 am
rendition of those interviews. is he a proven liar actor and freak. the one who should be impeached. he also said of the whistleblower, that he regarded that person as an arm of the democrat party. and there are all sorts of stories out there. there have been some online stories that have identified who they think the whistleblower is and i think the president has probably read some of that stuff and thinks is that true? ainsley: the president is worried that adam schiff is going tree lease transcripts and is he going to change the wording. he says he wants the republicans to release their own transcripts. when i talks about the never trumpers last week. there was a deposition with lieutenant colonel alexander vinman and he says he is a never trumper. brian brian joe dunford everyone expects him former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. he says he is a guy just doing his job a confidential loyal officer. going after the character doesn't work. can you say there is more coming out on him. let's find out. one person's opinion.
3:11 am
it's not the president's opinion and not the ambassador of the you were mean union and kurt volker's opinion. there is all sides. one of the worse things democrats could do for their own cause is to release partial transcripts. steve: that's what's going on right now because the democrats have all of the cards stacked against the republicans and the president and it's just the way congress works. it's the way they have done it for years. and now the democrats are in charge and they're the benefactors. ainsley: reporters hit the street and asked about it saying this is a waste of time. because the house is going to do what they're going to do. the senate is going to do what they are going to do. the president is still going to be in office. brines brian 89% of the democrats approve the impeachment inquiry. i guess it's who you talk to. his approval numbers haven't bundle. thbudged.what they're effectivey doing if you believe the democrats and republicans is nothing is getting done. spending bills aren't
3:12 am
getting passed. trade agreements aren't being loadin looked at. ainsley: people voted on their congressman to go into washington and get things done. people are guess frught straight with this. they are tired of the impeachment inquiry. steve: this particular congress was elected to a democratic majority because they said we are going to fix healthcare. they haven't done anything about it. one year from now people are going to be voting on did they get me anything done? meanwhile, we got something done. jillian has returned from the road. ainsley: welcome back. jillian: good morning morning. >> i got 17 hours in one night. actually a record. flush let's get you caught up on some of the news we are following. start with a fox news alert now. an urgent manhunt is underway for two escaped inmates in california. san degree and jonathan were both behind bars on murder charges. the sheriff's office is trying to figure out how they broke out of the high security facility in the town of salinas. there is a $5,000 reward for information leading to their arrest. president trump takes aim at
3:13 am

3:18 am
any public space within the police department. ainsley: so here to react is the sheriff of a neighboring county, frederick county in maryland, chuck jenkins. sheriff, thanks for being with us. what's your reaction? >> i'm outraged. it's disgraceful and disrespectful. the county executive has become an embarrassment to montgomery county. shows a total lack of regard for the sheriff's department and totally outrageous. steve: governor of your state, larry hogan who is a republican in part. i'm offended and disgusted. i have attended the funerals of fallen law officers across our state and i take time to thank them every day for their dedicated service and sacrifice. i strongly call on mr. elrich. he is the guy who said couldn't display it, to immediately reverse this terrible decision and to apologize to the police and the citizens of montgomery county. well, that's what the governor says. but what are the chances
3:19 am
plaintiff elrich apologizing, sheriff? >> i think very little chance. i think mr. elrich, the county executive, has showed his total lack of regard and respect, again. you can see a pattern here with recently declaring montgomery county a sanctuary county. now this step by him. this shows his pattern of what he will be as a county executive. he has put the county citizens at risk. he has put them in danger. this is just another move. it's really foolish. ainsley: what's the reaction from the police officers that work in that county or the deputies? >> you know, montgomery county police there is quite a few that live in frederick county which we border montgomery county to the north. i know quite few of them. morale is not good down there for a number of reasons. now i can only imagine it's a lot worse. steve: this county executive mr. elrich doesn't like that particular flag. when you look at that flag, with the blue line, what do you see? >> i see the dedication of the job that men and women do in law enforcement every day by going out there and,
3:20 am
you know, sometimes putting their lives at risk. they are dedicated. they are committed. let me tell you something, mr. elrich doesn't like anything about america, i don't believe. steve: what do you mean? >> i mean, listen, again, i go back to the fact that he has no respect for what law enforcement does. this thin blue line is the difference between a civilized society and total chaos. and he has no regard for that whatsoever. ainsley: so interesting. so bizarre. i can't believe we have come to this place in our country. it's an american flag, american and women have died for that that support the police. >> absolutely. he could have been a leader in his community by allowing this to be displayed and encourage the public to support police. instead he has tore down any chance of that. ainsley: he is allowing the -- the fire department is allowed to keep their flag with the red thin line because they haven't been taken over by the white nationalists. >> you know. that, again, that's another argument of the liberal left to try to drive a wedge
3:21 am
between law enforcement and the general public. ainsley: all right. sheriff. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: god bless you for your work. he helped take down the world's most wanted terrorist cornering al-baghdadi. it's it time a dog should receive the purple heart. a panel is going to weigh in on that coming up next ♪ and the eagle flies. ♪ you don't let a cold ruin your day. you take dayquil severe liquicaps and crush it. dayquil severe. the daytime, coughing, aching, stuffy-head, fever, sore throat, power through your day, medicine. make family-sized meals fast, and because it's a ninja foodi, it can do things no other oven can, like flip away. the ninja foodi air fry oven, the oven that crisps and flips away.

3:26 am
virginia. officer who serves in iraq done braymer and miles. miles, start with you yes or no, should he. >> yes, firmly believe that. brian: why? >> this is a relationship between the men and the dog. the dog is part of the team. already, if you go -- i know 75th s ranger regiment when the dogs expire, when they die overseas in combat, they are memorialized right next to the rangers that have passed on as well. this would just be official. the guys who i have talked to still in, guys who are outside. they are all for this. brian: interesting. don, for you. this really strikes home because you are a recipient. one of the hero dogs who lost his handler down range are you also in the category of yes. >> absolutely. as myles said they are part of the team. and oftentimes they save some lives.
3:27 am
they should be treated and honored with the same respect as the troops that they work with without them, there would be a lot more casualties. >> and daniel, you are a purple heart recipient. you believe you have a message for the president, right? >> i do have a message for the president. mr. president, if you are watching this morning. i brought one of my own purple hearts to present to the dog if you would like me to do so or if you would like me to give this to you, i can these dogs are heroic. they are part of a heroic mission. so, absolutely, if they are wounded in action i think it's totally fine to present a purple heart and you know the handler will have that as something that he can have forever. the dog obviously doesn't care. but they are a heroic part of the team and we should honor them for sure. brian: myles, what about the men or women who put them in the position to be heros? >> they have a special relationship. they also believe as well that they should be honored. they are already honored if
3:28 am
they do pass on or if they are injured. again, this is just something that everybody is for. it should have been done a long time ago. brian: is this exceptional dog or more of what they are normally like out in battle. >> no. these dogs, each one is so unique and, you know, i mean each one of them has their own characteristics. just like the soldiers and marines they work with. they have a personality. so, you know, treat this dog as the hero that he is. there has been a precedence. we have given medals and recognition to dogs before. so, why we are not doing it now is something we should consider. brian: daniel, finally, mocking the president because he retweeted a picture of a medal going around a dog's neck and took it from another honor recipient. what's your take on that. >> i think it's ridiculous. more of an attack on the president. that's the wrong approach. these dogs are heroic. the president's instincts
3:29 am
are right and right on the purple heart medal it says the president of the united states. if the white house says -- i'm sorry, if the pentagon says that he can't do it, guess what, he is the president he can and should do it. absolutely, yes. brian: george washington's idea and i think it was a good one the whole purple heart thing. i definitely salute those who serve. guys, thanks so much for joining us. we will see your perspective later on in the week. >> you got it. brian: 31 minutes before the top of the hour. they came here illegally, so what do we owe them if they are separated at the border? mayor pete thinks we owe them a lot. how about healthcare for free? plus mike huckabee is going to be here live. nfler book. best wide receiver ever jerry ris and veteran and former usc fighter tim kennedy all here on the next hour of "fox & friends." as a family, we always fly emirates.

3:35 am
unthinkable victory it was it wasn't until fox nation asked me to go out and do a feature on the alamo. i realized there is part of this story is not well-known and i could probably plow this ground. steve: because we -- i have been to the alamo a million times. you are absolutely right. it was -- didn't end well for the men who were there that day. but there were two other battles as well that figure into this story. brian: just picture this. up until 1820 it was basically open land. the apaches and command comanch. i want to work out a deal. bring some american families here and we can stay and be part of spain. well spain loses control to mexico and our people continue to flourish. there were more americans in mexico in 10 years than the spanish put there in 300 years. and when they tried to take the liberty and freedom away from the americans who were texans at the time, that's when they stood up and they
3:36 am
had to fight for their freedom that's what really took place. after two small victories is it was time to defend the alamo. of the way they fought and the way they lives. and what they did over 13 days set up sam houston's army for the ultimate success. the first thing you just saw was the alamo. steve you referred to the goliad. this is a a museum is that still stands. drone shots we took. we had 400 guys there. ainsley: where is that located? >> that is located two hours away from the alamo. they were going to come and help out the alamo. at the last minute west point drop out says you know what? we are never going to get there sam houston says get out. you will not be able to defend it. steve: the alamo. brian: hesitate. caught in the middle. will cut a deal. promised freedom if they promised not to fight. instead they were all gunned down in cold blood. sam houston took the ultimate victory and two people that helped us out with the special that really understood this story
3:37 am
general stanley mcchrystal himself as a little kid he had alamo set. he was obsessed with this. he met us there and douglas brinkley. they talk about sam houston and the courage that was seen throughout this fight for free dom. >> courage is something that's different in every person. but most people are not courageous alone. you get courage from the people you are around. if the people around you show optimism, if they show steadfastness, it's contagious. you don't want to let your comrades down. >> had pneumonia. he was in bad shape. he wanted to be one of the men to stayed. he is showed the courage to stay for the volunteers to stay. and even though he has to be in bed a lot. he can't walk. he is dizzy. his fortitude of fight never left him. brian: three of the most famous people in the country and left the country to go to texas. davy crockett, william berry travis and jim buoyy. the way they fought 180 guys up to 3,000. and not only did they die.

3:47 am
steve: exactly right. we will go through some stories and you tell us whether they are true or not. first one is that the president and first lady are estranged. true or false? >> totally false. steve: where did that come from? >> they are a couple. she is so dignified and handels herself with such grace. in every conversation he brings up melania. melania, this melania that once there is a story in the book where she is under attack for no other reason than just pure jealousy and she is hurt and they are having dinner with the family and president with puffed up importance says melania, honey, i bet you are really glad i took you on this adventure you are first lady and she says oh yeah, thank you very, very much. another scene in the book where the secret service sits her down to explain to her that her husband is going to go into a combat zone to degrees the troops. she says i'm going. she said no only twice in american history has a first lady gone into combat zone.
3:48 am
weeks to prepare. if my husband is in danger, i will share the danger. so on christmas night they fly out together to be with the troops. steve: i had not heard that story. that's great. also, what about the story out there that karl rove and manafort and kellyanne conway picked mike pence as vice president? >> yeah. their besthere are best-sellings based on that. steve: the answer is false? >> that's false. i was talking to eric when story broke. do you want to heart real story why dad picked? i said oh yeah. at the capitol grill restaurant conrad hotel with eric and his dad. and the two pence, karen and mike pence and later donald trump pulled his son aside in the corridor outside their bedrooms he said you get ivanka and jared and don, get them in here tomorrow right away. it was that conversation which i describe in the book inside trump's white house.
3:49 am
steve: one other one you could tell us whether or not it's true, tiffany trump, his daughter, not supportive of her daughter's campaign. you say that's false. >> that's false. she loves her father. she loves the campaign. he loves her. she is in law school and will campaign on the weekends but thought during the week. she goes to the white house every weekend. loves to see barron is her buddy, plays soccer. she told me a great story. had the only interview with tiffany since her father became president, she said that when they went to see the queen in buckingham palace you see them walk in with these beautiful gowns. she said there was no carriage and six white horses to take them. there was no motorcade. so they got a bus van. the kind of bus that takes you to your car at avis rental at the airport buckingham palace, please. okay. steve: not exactly a fairy tale arrival. one other thing that you do discuss is the fact that
3:50 am
even though the president has been there for three years, in the white house there are people who are 100 percent behind the president and there are people 100 percent behind protecting the country from the president. >> yeah. you are exactly right. my best interview, steve, were with jared and ivanka. they are brilliant. and of no bitterness, very analytical. jared, i asked jared, what's it like in here with the staff? he said there are two kind of staffers. those that want to join trump in saving the world and those who want to save the world from trump. he said we are trying to get a loyal staff that will stick together, but the instate who believes, who marches to their own beat is hard to change. steve: i think the president would like a list of those people. the new book is coming out soon it's called "inside trump's white house, a real story of his presidency." when it s. it coming out?

4:02 am
attorney pushing back on that idea in a series of tweets saying this, quote: our legal team offered the g.o.p. direct opportunity to ask written questions of the whistleblower. recent g.o.p. messaging led by president trump has been to highlight original whistleblower and demand disclosure of identity. despite long standing policy to protect whistleblower especially their anonymity, mark zaid says the g.o.p. has sought to expose our client's jeopardy which could jeopardize safety. being a whistleblower is not a partisan job nor impeachment objective that is not our role. we have offered to devin nun anywise, ranking member opportunity for minority to submit through legal team written questions to the whistleblower. questions cannot seek identifying info, regarding which we will not provide or otherwise be inappropriate, we will ensure timelyanswers. we stand ready to cooperate and ensure facts rather than partisanship dictates any process involving the whistleblower there are a lot of high profile

testimony expected or not happening at least scheduled for this week so this back and forth, steve, ainsley, and brian is certainly far from over. steve: no kidding. ellison, thank you very much. let's dial in dan bongino. he joins us from time to time. fox news contributor, former secret service guy former secret service cop down in will palm beach, florida. republicans, you can bypass adam schiff because you don't think it's fair. you think it's all in secret. you can ask him questions. that person questions directly. and he will answer anything except things about their identity. brian: in writing. steve: is that fair? >> no, it's not fair, guys. listen, there is no whistleblower. there is clearly based on the evidence someone with an agenda against donald trump. when i say he is no whistleblower. i get it a lot of liberals, of course, that cringe oh my gosh you can't say that a whistleblower means you are blowing the whistle on something, correct? i'm not crazy. you are blowing the whistle
4:04 am
on something. what they were allegedly blowing the whistle on didn't happen. steve, it's not like they. steve: we didn't know that in the beginning, dan. >> we know it now, okay. it's not that the like whistleblower blew the whistleblower on donald trump robbing a bank and donald trump didn't rob the bank. no bank was robbed. we have the transcript of the call where the whistleblower supposedly blew the whistle on a deal that never happened. you know, kellyanne conway was on another network this weekend. and did what i think was terrific. she has the transcripts. she hands it over to the host can you please circle the illicit deal? you understand there is no deal. there is no whistleblower. brian: you know what this seems to be. this seems to be something that comes up in oversight. it's the reason why you vote or don't vote for somebody. i don't like his foreign policy. i don't like the way he treats other leaders. then you say he is not my guy or not my woman. i'm not going to vote. this doesn't seem impeachable. i even watch exasperated

chuck todd say you didn't get any republican support. i thought nancy pelosi said bipartisan only. only way move forward. are we really doing this? >> let me just make one correction in here. yes, you are right. it was bipartisan support, brian, against it. two democrats voted against it. there was bipartisan support against impeachment. in what had to be a massive face plant for nancy pelosi. what an embarrassing moment. you are telling me out of this massive house. this body of representatives. representing nearly 700,000 americans, these 400-plus members. you couldn't get one republican to agree with you that the president committed a high crime and misdemeanor, treason or bribery? not one? but you could get two democrats to agree it didn't happen? and you want to overturn the votes of 60-plus million americans on a charge you couldn't get one republican to agree with you on? guys, this is insane. there is no whistleblower. okay? can i just make one more
4:06 am
point on this? i have been arguing with democrats on this network for 8 years now. they love to lose you in b.s. it's a great tactic. they will argue 3 plus 3 equals 7. we have the transcript there was no whistle to blow. there was no deal. this is all a farce and no republican should forget that. ainsley: adam schiff says he has a list. list of impeachable is growing. the president continues to target public servants including those served their country in combat with baseless attack. efforts to intimidate or threaten witnesses will further build the case for obstruction, itself an impeachable offense. your thoughts? >> the list of adam schiff lies is growing, ainsley. why does anybody take this clown seriously? he has been lying for three years. nothing he has told the american public has been true. he insisted he had evidence of collusion that nobody on god's green earth has yet to
4:07 am
uncover despite multi-million-dollar investigations and the full power of the u.s. government. he has been lying to people. he has been selectively leaking information, again, about collusion hoax part two, this alleged ukrainian deal that never happened. why does anybody take adam schiff seriously? he clearly has some kind of agenda and personal vendetta against the president. he has become a joke and a laughing stock. why would anybody take this seriously? where is the critical media supposed to be doing basic journalism trying to nail adam schiff down on basic facts? hey, listen, adam, you told us collusion was real, it wasn't. now you told us about this deal but we have the transcript. sir, the deal is not there. where exactly are we going with this? again, i can't figure out why anyone takes this guy seriously. he is a documented liar. steve: stay tuned. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about this. regarding your background in law enforcement. in maryland, apparently one of those thin blue line flag was presented and the county executive for montgomery
4:08 am
county, which is a sanctuary county, mark elrich said this: that flag symbolized -- provides a symbol of support to some but it is a symbol of dismissiveness to others. because it is divisive, the flag will not be posted at the fifth district in maryland nor any public space within the police department. and then you had larry hogan who is the governor of that state, he said i'm offended and disgusted that county executive mark elrich has prohibited montgomery county police officers have displaying a thin blue line american flag. it was made for them by a father and his young son in honor of national first responders day and he goes on to say other things. dan, what do you think of this? >> you negotiation steve, got the holidays coming up. thanksgiving, christmas, obviously holidays mean a lot to many americans. you will have these tables set up for thanksgiving, parents, daughters, sons, going to sit there. there is going to be an empty seat. that empty seat in way too many households across america is a heroic man or
4:09 am
woman who put a badge on their chest. went out one day doing a public service for very little money. no recognition. probably getting abused by politicians and public officials all the time. and they never came home that night. they never came home. they left everything on the field for you, to keep your streets safe. that's what that symbol means to the police officers who got this beautiful flag, the thin blue line flag. the fact that a couple of social justice warrior, you know, marshmallow eating snugy wearing twitter warriors seem to find offense in everything, including tell tubby episodes and don't like the thin blue line flag, and the county executive took that down. slapping in the face the heroic men and women who put that badge -- i mean slapping them in the face. not literally but closely slapping them in the face by ordering that taken down. larry hogan and i have had our disagreements. we go way back. i ran in maryland. imintimately familiar with maryland politics.
4:10 am
larry hogan did the right thing and deserves credit for this. mark elrich is a disgrace. this guy is one of the reasons by the way that montgomery county residents are living in droves and moving into frederick county and the surrounding counties in maryland to get away from this guy and his radical liberal policies that have been going on in montgomery county before mark but gotten worse. this is certainly a new low in a county in maryland that is used to lows. i mean, this is really a national disgrace. brian: we had protest new york city backed up by aoc over the weekend. democrats are making this clear, i don't know how law enforcement votes for a democrat when every politician when they get a chance to grab a podium seems to be ripping on them or doing things like this. >> yeah. i mean look at it. you brought up new york. the garbage all over the police cars, people spray painting police cars. you just nailed it. i don't know. i don't know how with a straight face you can look america in the eye as a

push gearing up for more testimony although all four requests by -- to the white house for people to show up are going to be ignored and pushed aside. next guest says time to get ready for the chapter for the impeachment inquiry. joining us is andy mccarthy ball of collusion. andy, what do you mean sneaky? it's front and center in a couple of weeks. what's sneaky? >> well, i think what i'm referring, to brian, is the fact that they are going to issue this report, resolution doesn't just open up the process to the public or publicize the stuff that's gone on behind closed doors up to this point. what it does is it calls for adam schiff who runs the intelligence committee to write a report transmitting the findings and recommendations of his investigation to the judiciary committee. brian: nadler. >> handle the next phase of impeachment. right.
4:19 am
what i think is we all want to see the underlying reports. we should have been able to see this testimony up until now. this is the most important issue our political community deals with. it's the people's business. and it ought to be done in public. there's no reason this should be done behind closed doors. so the clamor here is why don't we have the underlying materials? i think their plan is to take whatever of the underlying testimony that they have had up until now. whatever they are going to give us of that. and they are going to append it to schiff's report. and they are going to hope that what happens, you know, between that and coordinating it with the media, that the public will basically read schiff's report and not the hundreds of pages of underlying testimony. brian: right. but if they only release portions of the interviews that were behind closed doors, right there, republicans have won the argument. >> i think so. look, brian, this is a political process impeachment as we have said
4:20 am
again and again is always political. if the democrats want this to be taken seriously, they have to open up the process, be transparent and afford the president and the minority due process. if they don't, then the process is still a kangaroo court. they can pass all the resolutions that they want. this is the public's business and there is no reason this should be being done behind closed doors. brian: andy what you know other than the phone call. rudy was doing this and that. having said that does this rise to impeachment for you? >> it does not, brian. but i think that if the president wants to effectively defend himself, what he needs to do is get beyond, you know, talking about quid pro quos and talking about the conversation being perfect and explain why this is not impeachable under the circumstances. i think as long as he freezes his defense by saying this thing was perfect. then they are not going to make the main defense which is that it's not

soon as we get into office. steve: okay. some experts warn such a move could have catastrophic effects on the economy and crash the stock market. somebody who knows all about the stock market is tr.t.d. rah mayor tradameritrade founde. the harder you work the luckier you get. mr. joe rickets joins us live here in the studio. good morning, joe. >> good morning, steve. >> i realize the democrats have god to draw a line between themselves and donald trump is getting rid of tax cuts a good idea. >> probably not at the current time. at some point in time taxes are going to have to change. when you have in such a hot market for so long chances are somewhere along the line you are closer to a recession then more upside and that's the wrong time to be talking about taking away taxes. steve: why do taxes have to change. a lot of people say they are too high right now. i know they are progressive where the super rich guys pay more than the people at the other end of the food
4:28 am
chain. >> oh boy. steve: i guess you are one of the super rich guys. [laughter] >> taxes are critically important to the welfare of the economy. so i think the thing is you always have to look at first is what's the rate of our gross national product have increase year to year. we need 3% a year just to absorb the new people coming into the market. so, if you have only got a 2% increase in gross national product, you don't want to raise taxes. if you have a 3.5%, 4%, that's the time to raise taxes. steve: so you are looking at the metrics. let's talk a little bit about your book "the harder you work, the luckier you get." you were a part-time janitor. you borrowed 12,500 bucks. and i don't know why anybody would put money into your brokerage firm as a former part time janitor but they did. >> they did, yeah. four of us decided to do it. big risk. but one of the reasons i did write the book was to encourage entrepreneurs to do the things that they
4:29 am
think might be impossible and let them know how hard it can be and what kind of rewards can be there. but, we could see that if customers just wanted to place a trade and pay only for the execution that there would probably be a big enough market to support our costs and we were more than right. >> but you made some mistakes along the way. >> oh, my goodness, yes. mistakes are better than going to college. get ahead in life. skip college, open your own business and make mistakes. you will learn from those more than what you will learn from college. steve: what do you mean the harder you work the luckier you get? >> we would work so long at a particular issue or market approach and think oh my gosh, this is just not working and then bingo it catches. oh, that was a piece of luck. so, things happen well if you continue to work hard. they may not happen the way you want but you get good

4:35 am
colonel lorenz is something colonel west has been pushing for. pete: a lot of people have been pushing for thflt members of military, members of congress and members of the media and others. these are cases i followed closely i was able to confirm yesterday from the president of the united states himself commander-in-chief that action is imminent especially on the two case of clint lawrence and matt golsteyn and restoring the rank of eddie gallagher. they are trying to bust him down. brian: they did. pete: they did. take away his try jent as well. we did criminal justice reform. military justice reform is what is needed next. this president recognizes the injustice of you train someone to go and fight and kill the enemy. then they kill the enemy the way someone doesn't like, and we put them in jail or throw the book at them in clint lorance's case he has been in jail seven years, 12 more at leavenworth if nothing is done. veterans day coming up, action is imminent at the presidential level. i can confirm that the president will be speaking to the army secretary about this because boast lorance
4:36 am
and golsteyn are soldiers in the army. it doesn't have to be a pardon or commutation it. could be. pardons or commutation imply have you guilt have you done something wrong. the president has a commander-in-chief has a lot of latitude under the uniform code of military justice to dismiss a case or change a sentence and from what i understand, that is likely what will happen here shortly. ainsley: for people aren't familiar with these cases, what did each of them do. pete: clint lorance a brand new platoon leader in afghanistan. leading platoon on second day he is charged. previously people have been killed by suicide bombers on motorcycle. three men on motorcycles approach his platoon not with a politic second to decide. brian: they did not stop. pete: they did not stop when told to stop. split second clint lorance orders his men to fire on the motorcycle. he is charged with murder because there is no weapons found on those individuals. later on through forensics they identify at these two of these guys were taliban
4:37 am
bomb makers. ainsley: isn't motorcycle considered. >> it's a tactic the taliban had used to run at platoons, get close, blow yourself up and kill americans. they are still use it's today. in fact the platoon leader in that area was killed months later by the same tactic. even though they have more evidence the army has squashed it. he is leavenworth. the president reviewing that case and matt golsteyn case we knew that was under active review. in this case again killing the enemy on the battlefield, someone who with american blood on their hands. he had been cleared by the army once already. because he gave an interview and talked publicly about it, he was honest with the cia. they reopened the case and now they are throwing the back at him again. a lot of this is obama era rules of engage 789 that were used that president trump is now changing and saying i'm not going to do this to war fighters. steve: if the president changes something and you are pretty cryptic about what that might be. he has a myriad of things he
4:38 am
has at his disposal, if he changes it, who is going to be upset? pete: a lot of traditional army establishment types who are more wedded to the uniform code of military justice or the process or to the lawyers or to the way we have always done things than the fidelity to the war fighter. the president looks at it through that lens. a simple lens, an important one the way i look at it especially how we crucial isis. we train these guys, they're the best of the best. unleash them to go kill them. if they make one tiny mistake in the split of battle or something goes wrong, then a lawyer in the pentagon, based on some rules that were written in an air conditioned offices mopped morning quarterback them and say you know what? that deserves 20 or 25 or 30 years to life. there sorry cases. these are just the ones we have gone as public as we can with. the president believes it should be commanders on the ground making these decisions and ultimately the benefit of the doubt should go to the guys pulling the trigger who we ask them to go. especially when they are killing, i mean, basically
4:39 am
if someone views the killing as politically incorrect or not absolutely textbook then they go away. what happens to our guys on the battlefield? what does the enemy do to us? if they capture us they chop our heads off do. they have any rules in the way they fight against us they hide amongst women and children. that's not what we are talking about in these cases. we are talking about war fighters who deserve real justifiable. ainsley: when will this happen? pete: i'm told before veterans day. they have their own deep state plenty of lawyers in there. have to fight about that. the fact it's coming out publicly. steve: have we heard from the families. >> i have subpoena to all of the brothers, mothers and lawyers of these groups. there is a lot of optimism. brian: they know something is active. pete: they have known the cases were under review to hear that hey action is imminent at the presidential level but you don't want to get anybody's hopes up. this has been a long process. matt golsteyn they have been coming after him 10 years at his family, his kids, his

4:49 am
release 900 suspected criminals arrested this year who are in jail right now awaiting trial. de blasio hoping to ease the public's concerns by offering suspected criminals freebies to things like tickets to baseball games, to mets games, to keep them on the straight and narrow while they are out on bail and entice them to show up for trial. proponents of governor cuomo's bail say money should not be a factor and somebody getting out of jail. the rich shunting the only ones to awaited outside of jail. the threat of loss of bail money is a major factor in whether or not a suspected criminal shows up for trial. but the big story this morning is mets tickets just for showing up for trial if you get arrested for doing something wrong. brian: also goes to shows you the mets picked great manager not be able to give away those tickets. rob: not giving them yankees tickets. only mets tickets which is the funniest part about it. ainsley: i can't believe that i should 23409 not be surprised. brian: you shouldn't.

who are you calling out about the coverage regarding the president at madison square garden? >> everybody. so i had a ton of friends at the fights. i had -- i was fortunate enough to meet president trump in 2016 right before he was elected. when i was getting ready to fight at madison square gardens and. what you saw on every single outlet was boos and people complaining and it was projected and it was presented as if it was this horrific event that he attended these fights. is he a fight fan. he loves fighting. and if you don't think one of the fighters that was there pretty excited that the president of the united states was in attendance, like you are wrong. steve steve there were boos. >> there were some. in manhattan, if you are looking for accurate swath

population of the country. manhattan is not it. 70% democratic. and it is -- it's not like you are in texas or kentucky and lexington where he is about to speak. it is primarily a blue state. especially that city. and even there he is being cheered. like huge applause. there were boos but they were pumped he was there. brian: it proves he doesn't have thin-skin. he knew it would be a mix. new york city come down dramatic walk. in dana white loves him. said it was uproarous and loud. it's not cheering or booing. it's just this loud noise that just gives you a sense of something big is going to happen. that's what trump wanted with that walk-in. too simple to say boos or cheers. >> yeah it. is very an electric thing to be there in attendance to be

5:06 am
we think it's a man. "new york times." brian: his identity will not be released written questions. this will get everybody talking. in honesty, be a whistleblower have your identity protected what the law says, what he says, has to be done in an exchange. whatever they answer the follow up question has to be there. now -- steve: that is hard when it is all written. brian: republicans, this is pretty much a head fake for republicans. if they take this, they will realize answer questions the way he answers no ability to see body language, tone, eye contact, follow up questions that took place. what they will try to do, the whistle-blower booked all the other guests, i know of other people heard it first-hand. that is everything to do with the guest list behind closed doors with the adam schiff. steve: during the closed-door stuff anecdotally the
5:07 am
whistleblower's name couple up several times. the republicans are trying to peach together patchwork to find out who the people are. the president last hour tweeted out regarding the whistle-blower, the whistle-blower gave false conversation with corrupt politician schiff. he must be brought forward to testify. whiten answers are acceptable. where is the second whistle-blower? he disappeared after i released the transcript. does even exist? where is the inform can't? con. brian: he says not allowing people to defend him because the transcript does have enough for supporters and detractors in it. you need someone to expand. other people said i had a problem with the july, for second week in july conversation. it is not just about july 25th. the big speculation over the
5:08 am

5:09 am
saying we will bypass adam schiff answer questions directly of the republicans. that the republican campaigns say it is all in secret. the deck is stacked against the president. that means, that argument is working because now the whistle-blower's attorney, saying what? we are, we're not trying to keep any secrets? any questions that you have are fair we will answer them but they have to be written down. ainsley: i think this will backfire on the democrats. if the election were tomorrow i feel like -- steve: you know why? yesterday on "meet the press" they sent reporters and producers out to talk to people in early primary states what think about what is going on in washington and the impeachment. this is on nbc. "meet the press." what do the people say? roll the tape. >> i think it's a waste of time. they're a bunch of little kids fighting and not accomplishing what the hell they are elected for. >> we have a system of checks and balances. the way it should work the house
