hit him right in the face. jillian: the pompom did. he is so involved with the fries he doesn't even know what's going on. [laughter] have a good day. rob: see you later. ♪ ♪ steve: it is going to be a short week for a lot of people. today is the monday before thanksgiving. that means a lot of people are only working monday, tuesday and wednesday. in today for ainsley is emily. emily: good morning. thanks so much for having me. we are not on vacation yet we are working. brian: in the year of trump vacations mean nothing, holidays mean nothing. nonstop news. still hard to keep up with. i guess since really friday our 55 minute interview. so much has changed even since that.
3:01 am
steve: i unplugged after that. brian: you did? i can't afford to. steve: i got to catch up. we are going to start with a fox news alert. this broke late yesterday. the secretary of the navy is out. brian: case in point. richard spencer asked to step down after disagreeing with the president eddie gallagher's war crime case. you will. >> secretary of defense mark esper fired richard spencer over his handling of eddie gallagher's case. according to the pentagon, spencer lost the trust and confidence of his boss after secretly trying to negotiate a deal with the white house to allow the navy to complete its review of gallagher's case while promising he would essentially fixed the results to ensure gallagher was allowed to you keep his trident and his rank. defense officials tell fox news president trump rejected that offer. telling spencer, quote: no. we're done. and then doubled down on his efforts to halt the review of gallagher's actions in
3:02 am
2017 that resulted in a high profile war crimes case. gallagher was found not guilty in the murder of an islamic state fighter in iraq but was demoted earlier this year for posing for a photo next to an isis fighter's corpse. spencer had a different take on all of this though and said in his resignation letter i no longer share the same understanding with the commander-in-chief who appointed me in the regard to the key principle of order and good discipline. i cannot obey an order that i believe violates the sacred humane society my family, my flag and my faith to support and defend the constitution of the united states. here is what eddie gallagher said on "fox & friends" sunday. >> this is all about ego and retaliation. this has notifying to do with good order and discipline. they could have taken my trident and any time they he wanted. now they are trying to take it after the president restored my rank and after we just filed an ig exposing all of the corruption that's been going on during my case. >> president trump has already nominated his next nominee for the secretary of
3:03 am
the navy retired rear admiral kenneth bright wait who served 21 year in the navy and current u.s. ambassador to norway. brian, steve, and emily? steve: the navy secretary, mr. spencer, told the defense secretary one thing and told the white house something else, right, and that's what got him into trouble. >> yeah. privately he was telling the white house we can essentially have this deal to publicly make it look like the navy is going through this process to review the case while say we are going to know what the result is in the end. publicly we need to go through this allow the course to run through and reach a conclusion as it would in any other case. brian: not that it matters that much. he said he resigned. the secretary of defense said he was fired. writes lengthy letter channel general mattis you deserve somebody who shares your views. thanks a lot, garrett. the other thing to keep in mind, too. senator inhofe i can't do
3:04 am
the unauthorize biography of now former secretary of navy spencer, but senator inhofe made the following statement today secretary of defense notified me that he asked for the secretary's resignation, both esper and president trump have deserve to have a leadership team they. no secret that i my own disagreements over spencer with the navy. senator schumer said some nice things about him. again, that's part of what i am saying. you take one hour off you miss this huge dispute. steve: the president did tweet out something about cost overruns with the navy anyway. and they weren' weren't cuttingo he is out. who is in, emily? emily: michael bloomberg here is he on why he has now declared his presidency for the 2020 presidential election. >> >> i decided to run because i think it's time to change the top in the white house. donald trump has not been a good president.
3:05 am
we need to change that and, also, this country is being pulled apart. we need to pull it together and make sure that we help everybody across the country share in the great american dream. steve: okay. so you have got this billionaire who wants to be president. he was three terms as the mayor of new york city. keep in mind, he was a democrat. and then when he ran for mayor the first time here in new york city, he became a republican. during his three terms he turned into an independent. it looks as if one of the things the democrats are going to tag him on is party loyalty. remember he started out as a democrat and then became a republican. also his stop and frisk program and he has cited -- sided repeatedly with conservatives on charter schools. something the democratic hierarchy is not a big fan of. brian: moderates and republican also say hey, you are very aggressive when it comes to gun control, when it comes to climate change extremely liberal. when it comes to, as you mentioned, steve, charter
3:06 am
schools, something side with conservatives on. he was stop and frisk. 12 years he was mayor. he sat there and said oops, made a huge mistake. 77 years old he finally realized three months ago it that he was so for it and now three days ago he decides what a huge mistake i made. nobody doubts his competence as a businessman. no one doubts his competence as someone to run an organization. he does have the experience to run a city. my feeling is i just don't understand what is now. what did he see in joe biden? what did he not see in this field that makes him think at number 17, giving you up small state primary runs, any presence in the iowa caucus, i can do it? and is he going to do it with money without taking any donations. he is going to do it attacking trump, not the other 16 dems can. emily: other candidates have immediately jumped on him already for what they argue is buying the presidency or attempt to bit presidency,
3:07 am
but enormous amount of money he has spent on his ad blitz. steve: $34 million this week. emily: one of his closest advisors howard wolfsen said is he going to spend whatever it takes because he believes the stakes couldn't be higher. earlliterally going to try the buy the presidency. steve: because is he not asking for donations he won't qualify for the debates. here are bernie sanders and amy klobuchar talking about the billionaire who want to be president. >> i don't think people will buy it that you just put a bunch of money and maybe the argument is hey, i have got more money than the guy in the white house. they are not necessarily looking for the richest person. they have a guy who constantly talking about how much money he has. they are looking for someone different. >> we do not believe that billionaires have the right to buy elections. that's is why most high
3:08 am
billionaires like mr. bloomberg are not going to get very far in this election. brian: they are going to go after him because that's consistent with their theme. kellyanne conway who knows a lot about the political thing before she started working for the white house. i mean, this is what she did. she looked at the field, her polls were as good as any of in the business. she said this about what changes now. it? >> means that the democratic field is underwhelming even to someone like michael bloomberg there are 18 democrats still running for president of the united states, margaret, probably with another 10 or 12 who have dropped out of the race and michael bloomberg saying i don't think any of can you beat donald trump. for all the talk about electability. that's a fiction. you don't noe if somebody can or can't win so they do or don't. steve: something else we do know, bloomberg news which e78 ploys thousands of journalists around the world came out with essentially a note to the staff, we're not going to investigate michael bloomberg. the guy who started the company. we're not going to
3:09 am
investigate his rival. but they will investigate president trump. brian: how fair and balanced. keep in mind, this is what democrats could be pointing to. when it comes to debates in june, they have 18 million viewers. last debates at tyler perry studios 6.6. there is less and less interest on the people on the stage it. doesn't mean they are not talented. it means so far america hasn't seen presidential material. steve: do you know what? and they have the really big rating when they had like 150 people running. the more people running, the higher the ratings. brian: maybe. steve: meanwhile, what's going to happen next with impeachment? adam schiff says they could still call more witnesses. they might have more hearings. but he is really wanting to go back and listen to his constituents. but president trump said the democrats are going to wind up with an earful. here is what the president tweeted. democrats going back to their districts for thanksgiving are getting absolutely hammered by their constituents over this phoney impeachment scam the republican writes. the republicans will have a
3:10 am
great #2020 election. here is adam schiff. >> i want to discuss this with my constituents and my colleagues before i make a final judgment on it. i certainly think that the evidence that's been produced overwhelmsly shows serious misconduct by the president. but i do want to hear more from my constituents and i want to hear more from my colleagues. this is not a decision i will be making alone. but, at the end of the day, this is a decision about whether the founding fathers had in mind this kind of misconduct which when they gave congress this remedy. steve: he is going to listen to his constituents. probably looking at the polls, too. emily: not hard to see how disingenuous that was. for so long now he has been calling the president's conduct impeachable. he clearly and publicly came to a conclusion before they began the formal inquiry. it reads poorly for his constituents and viewers. brian: i'm stunned. is he going back to his
3:11 am
constituents have has been opponent predominantly democratic district. is he going to talk to the battleground candidates who have saying i'm being blitz right now by the trump campaign in my area. trump won districts that flipped in the midterms. they are getting hit and slammed on this impeachment. and we see the battle ground how impeachment is beginning to get less and less popular by the day. so i'm fascinated that this weekend he didn't use his national appearances to say here are my articles of impeachment. and this is what i'm giving to nadler. instead, i don't know. that is stunning. it's because no republican has flipped. steve: well, because the way it was laid out is his committee would write a report. give it to judiciary, and then they would write the articles of impeachment. but ultimately they are going to get the thumbs up or thumbs down from nancy pelosi. does it make sense politically for her and her base? yes or no. it all depends on the constituents. brian: the fact is "i don't know" is not the answer i thought we would get.
3:12 am
jillian, nice to see you. jillian: i do know i have headlines to read. how about that. let's start with this, the 18-year-old suspect charged in the deadly shooting of an alabama sheriff will appear in court today. william johnson is the son of a sheriff's deputy in montgomery county. about an hour away from the gas station where he is accused of killing lowndes county sheriff big john williams. police say johnson shot williams then stole his car. he returned three hours later and surrendered. williams is a marine veteran and served as sheriff for nearly a decade. he is the 38th officer shot and killed in the line of duty this year. supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg is home and doing well after being hospitalize thud weekend. the 86-year-old was taken to johns hopkins to check for a possible infection after experiencing chills and a fever. ginsburg has had cancer four times, including two bowghts this year. she has been on the court since 1993. week 12 in the nfl. the patriots clinch a record 17th straight season with at

3:18 am
brian fox news alert. secretary of the navy out he resigns, richard spencer asked to step down after disagreeing with the president over navy seal eddie gallagher's war crime case. comormer green beret commander congressman mike michael waltz joins us now. did the secretary of defense he is officer do the right thing? >> it seems to me, yes, brian. i talked to some folks last night in the pentagon and the issue here was that the navy secretary was essentially cutting deals around the defense secretary's back and creating a lot of confusion nut ranks. look, for a lot of people who are going to say well, this is about good order and discipline in the military. that doesn't just apply to navy chiefs and their officers, that applies to admirables, to navy secretaries and to the president of the united states. that good order and discipline applies all the way up the chain of commands. the key element of any democracy is civilian oversight of the military. this was completely within the president's right.
3:19 am
he looked into this case. and, you know, my point is the navy has a lot of other things that it should be worried about right now. brian: like, for example. senator inhofe said i'm not happy with spencer anyway. we have had disagreements. what's the problem? what is the problem? >> well, the problem is the number of costover runs and delays in some of the navy's major programs the four class carrier the newest carrier in the fleet has 2.5 billion in cost overruns is going to be delayed in its feeding. our newest submarines, our nuclear submarines in our fleet has the -- the construction hasn't even started yet and we are looking at delays. the aviation fleet in terms of its readiness is struggling. meanwhile, brian, we have the chinese that are on track to exseed the size of the u.s. navy in the next 10 years. they are cranking out a ship every six weeks. so, look, if the president
3:20 am
thinks this man was acquitted and he needs to retire and weighing out his service in multiple combat tours, that's his right within commander-in-chief, salute and move on. we need to be dealing with these issues i completely agree with senator inhow far on this one. brian: you want to see more efficiency at the navy. he gives people and counts on people to spend correctly. i remember he was on the show a year and a half ago he says this thing does not run yet. what is the problem? it is still not ready. >> it has problems with propulsion system. problem with the elevator that lifts planes to the deck. and then the catapults can't launch the newest fighter in our inventory the joint strike fighter. we are looking ought almost 13 billion for this one aircraft carrier. meanwhile the half trillion-dollar program with our fighters, they don't work together. so, i mean, these are huge issues. i'm on the sea power oversight
3:21 am
committee. we need answers. need a secretary of the navy who is focused on these issues. brian: here is the big question, michael, especially you as a special operator yourself. we need to know they have our backs in the times of war the everyone tense city we don't understand civilians. how do you do that and still have a sense of justice out in the filed? do you think we got that breakdown down? >> no. i have looked at all of these cases. and the case you have lieutenant lorance, recently pardoned. i have read that case cover to cover and received a lot of counsel. there is a big difference between a mistake, even an an error in judgment and a war crime. and when you have men and women down range making these decisions in split seconds in the pressure of combat. brian: got charges they can't have lawyers back in washington with a 5,000-mile screwdriver second guessing and monday morning quarterbacking. the big difference in that
3:22 am
and the case there was another sergeant who walked into an afghan village and machine gunned 16 afghans. that guy is sentenced to life. brian: that's a problem. >> he will never see the light of day. that's a war crime. the president is not even talking about that case. brian: exactly. there is a logic to his pardons and the exoneration. and i know you are overseeing it, too. congressman, thanks so much. >> absolutely. thanks so much, brian. brian: okay. meanwhile, straight ahead. social justice warriors storm the field in the middle of an ivy league game. i can't believe. this was this really the right time and place i will pretend to be perplexed. harvard student was there and he was outraged. his message next. let's play it down. ♪ so much goes into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. prescription dovato is for adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment and who aren't resistant to either of the medicines dolutegravir or lamivudine.

3:28 am
fossil fuel companies and two dozen reportedly arrested. >> next guest attended the game and blasted the move as empty activism. emily: here is harvard university student christopher colby. welcome. >> thank you, guys, so much for having me. emily: tell us about the protest? what was it like being there in person? what did you see? what went down? >> i will be the first to admit that harvard and yale are no sec state schools. we don't have many big football games. we love our football games. we love our historic game. oldest football game in the country. these protesters decided their version of empty activism this weekend was go sit in the middle of the field during the game right in the middle of it waste be everybody's time. the protest was pretty poorly planned. most of my will friends were urked. biggest take away for the most part elm did i political activist thing that licials tend to do. they pick their favorite day
3:29 am
and do whatever they want with it. really quite annoying. i don't think the protest accomplished much. >> christopher, i know that one of the things they were trying to do is they were trying to demand the university stop funding and invetting money in fossil fuel companies. at the same time, you know, when you think about it and they abandon those kind of investments. you say the first thing the university would have to do then is probably cut financial aid to students and to things to students who really need that money. >> yeah, for sure. the university's endowment principally is designed to take care of all the things in the university that need funding. so things the cream of the crop, things quite luxuries like harvard's financial aid program rely on endowment to perform. ironic people taking the field uneducated protesters that just wants blanket action they're the ones saying york if the endowment has bad returns i want this simple ban on returns.
3:30 am
not on environment but just in the way as we hold stocks as endowment by the way as protester i have next per tease on. they would be the first ones to leave that field for a different reason. the field of harvard university because they wouldn't have funding to go to school anymore. steve: so far no action against the protesters, right? >> yeah. there has been around 24 to 40 court summons to new haven which, by the way will be using fossil fuels on the way there for the most part the protesters got off easy. you know, just slaps on the wrist. even harvard administrators said this is a bad thing we didn't enjoy this happening. we aren't going to take any reasonable action. also as the leadership institute campus reform reports in the pattern of most protest that tend to disrupt a lot of the things yet at the same time not receive the consequences due to them. left's be honest a big waste of all our time. disappointed it happened. such is life as the campus these days. >> did your team win?

i wish we did. 50 to 43 double overtime. protest didn't help. emily: thanks for joining us, christopher. thank you. >> thank you guys so much. steve: there you go. meanwhile when it comes to impeachment, congressman adam schiff claims if the shoe was on the other foot, republicans would be doing the same thing the democrats are. >> if this was barack obama had done this, they would have voted to impeach him in a heart beat. with fraction of the evidence. emily: dan bongino isn't buying it and he is on deck. steve: and? emily: add secret santa to the list of things millennials want to ban. we will explain next. steve: ho ho oh no. ♪ all his reindeer pulling on the reign ♪ children singing ♪ all is merry and s guy, bright

3:36 am
swamp. first question to you, dan, do you need to get on n. paperback version do you insert does this fit the same protocol from what you know right now as the russia and the mueller report? >> you know, it's funny, brian. i had a great source in my book exxonner rate offed i already had the ukraine stuff. as a matter of fact, we had a long debate whether to put it in because we weren't sure it was going to break. i was in your green room telling someone else who was a guest a year ago that ukraine was going to be the next big thing. and i knew that for a couple perform reasons. it's the reason the whole spy gate hoax and the ukraine impeachment fake whistleblower hoax are really essentially the same scandal, brian. it's no more difficult than this the same sources that the democrats used in conjunction with fusion g.p.s. to obtain spying warrants to spy on donald trump. were ukrainian. none of this is difficult to figure out. it's on the record testimony from fusion gps personnel like nellie ohr. and it's pretty clear the democrats are trying to hide what they did in spy gate
3:37 am
and now through the fake whistleblower gate are trying to hide what they did in conjunction with ukrainian people and other foreign nationals to spy on donald trump. brian, it's no more complicated than that. that's what they are trying to do. they are trying to sweep it all under the rug by counter accusing donald trump. steve: they do not seem to have much curiosity regarding that. here is adam schiff talking about the hypocrisy of what's going on. watch. this i would hope that there will be republicans who will be willing to step forward and say whatever the political consequences, if this was barack obama had done this, they would have voted to impeach him in a heart beat. with fraction of the evidence. steve: he also said yesterday, mr. bongino, that he doesn't know why the senate would ever call him as a witness because he has got nothing to say. he would be able to say what they took by depositions and what people said in the open
3:38 am
hearing. so don't bother, he said. >> steve, schiff is a material fact witness. he said forever he has this phantom evidence of whole russian collusion scandal didn't have. he also has already admitted his team has it contact with the whistleblower's team. he is a fact witness about how this whole thing developed. that's not this. wait, wait. wrewind the tape here. is adam schiff kidding me that the republicans would have impeached if, if he would have done it. if he would have done what, like whisper in the ear of the russian president on a hot mic hey, man, i will have a lot more flexibility wink and a nod after my election. if he would have shipped a pallet full of hard cash over death to american reign yaps? is this for real? barack obama if he would have usurped power daca and not in his authority to use
3:39 am
prosecutorial discretion that way. if he would have did it? he did it. obama did it and trump didn't. that has to be a really bad joke schiff. he is poking us now, guys. brian: i'm just struck that he didn't go out and say here are my four articles hand it over to nadler and hand it over to the senate. everyone stead he says i'm going to go home and talk to constituents. not his, he knows how they feel in california. they will take the pulse of the people at town halls in those districts. it's fascinating after all of this and his red-faced rants that he doesn't know if he has impeachment. real quick. the horowitz report over the weekend "the washington post" and "new york times" indicate it's not going to say thought fbi or the intelligence apparatus was out to get trump they said they did everything above board except that one personal who worked at the fbi messed with one fisa application. is that the way the horowitz report is going to read when we get it in two weeks. >> i'm not optimistic. i know that disappoints a lot of people. i'm not. even a soft reading of the
3:40 am
"new york times" story about the horowitz report, brian is devastating. we now know their whole case was based on russian agent with paparazzi. now their fall back is well at least it wasn't an fbi informant. that's your victory lap? we also know now they didn't vet their source, steele. brian, that wouldn't be an issue if steele wasn't your only source to spy on trump. that's a generous reading of the "new york times" story. it's still devastating. having said that though, i think the durham report is really where the action is going to be. horowitz, you know, i'm not optimistic about that. and by the way, it wasn't a low level fbi lawyer. the guy they are alleging changed the document and manipulated evidence here was not a low level lawyer. he was up there in the ranks of the fbi in that chain of command. that's nonsense. that's a silly talking point. steve: there you go. dan bongino, by the way, i discovered friday night the doocys and bonginos had dinner. i invited dan out to a nice
3:41 am

3:47 am
widely hailed for today's economic pros parroted. now many 2020 democrats want to reverse them. >> i have proposed a 2-cent wealth tax. >> i do raise the tax rate to 39 pulp 5%. >339.5%. >> will you raise taxes? >> people have no premium us no, deductibles, no co-payments, no out-of-pocket expenses, yes. they will pay more in taxes. steve: okay. well, in a new fox business.com op-ed next guest says time for trump tax cuts 2.0 and has four ways to help americans keep more of their money which we think is a pretty good idea. here to explain is former economic advisor to president trump steve moore, senior fellow at the heritage foundation. steven, good morning to you. >> hi, steve. >> white house is talking about four different ideas and the number one one that is going to have a lot of people interested is tax-free savings accounts. explain how that would work. >> let me just first say
3:48 am
that the tax plan that we passed in 2017, you are exactly right, steve, has been a phenomenal success. we have the best economy in the world today. we have 7 million surplus jobs. incomes are up by about $5,000 for middle class families, plures the $2,000 tax cut that middle class families with children receive. it was a big deal. and i cringe when i hear democrats say the first thing they would do is repeal that tax cut. now, it is time for trump, in my opinion, to call for a second tax cut for his second term. and one of the central features of that would be, what i call universal savings account. people with incomes of up to, say, about $150,000 would be able to save up to $10,000 per year, steve, without paying tax on that money. and what i think is very attractive about that is we know american middle class people aren't saving enough. let's give them a little bit of incentive to do that and put more money into their
3:49 am
retirement accounts and be more prepared for, you know, economic uncertainty. steve: absolutely. something else in trump tax cut 2.0. you are talking about lowering the tax rate on the middle class. >> yeah. steve: from the current 22% to 15%. >> that's an idea that my buddy larry kudlow has been talking about juneau. set chief economist for donald trump. this would provide a nice tax cut for people in the about 40 to $80,000 income range. and the whole idea here is how do we help middle class people keep more of their own money. that one, i think, has a good chance of being part of the trump 2.0 tax plan. steve: number three, capital gains rollover, how would that work? >> we didn't cut the capital gains tax in the last -- in the bill. we wanted, to the one we passed in 2017. this is an idea not to make this too complicated. let's say, steve, if you own shares of general electric stock. and you sell those shares
3:50 am
and then you have a capital gains because you made money. and then if you put that money into buying a new stock, why should you have to pay a capital gains on that. all you are transferring one stock to another. this is called rollover. would allow more liquidity in the market and basically say okay, you pay the tax when you take the money out of the stock market not if you transfer one stock for another. steve: final idea, private accounts for social security. and you know that people are going to see that and go, wait, what are they talking about now? >> this is an idea that i don't know if the trump administration is going tomorrow brace but it's something i think for middle class people would be one of the best ways for everyone american to own stock in america. so, instead -- the idea would be, you know, rather than having to send your 10% of your paycheck in to the black hole social security. you would be able to put that in personal account index fund that means, steve, everybody in america would benefit when the stock market goes up. steve: thank you for a preview of perhaps coming

♪ emily: welcome back. prince andrew now under the microscope of the fbi. the agency wanting to interview the prince on his friendship with jeffrey up stein. miranda divine has been reporting this story around joins us now with report. thank you so much for joining us today. you just said this is one of your favorite topics, tell us why. >> look. it has everything, doesn't it? it has loyalty and celebrity and now it has crime. i think prince andrew going on the bbc interview last week was a disaster for him. the one good thing that has come out of it is he did say during that interview and later on in an official statement that he was willing to be interviewed by authorities, which is all that epstein's victims has ever wanted is for him to come clean and say what he knows. that doesn't mean that he is implicated in epstein's network of pedophiles in this international sex ring he had going. but what it does mean is that he knows more than what he said on the bbc. >> he must do. if he has been friends with epstein for over a decade. he has been to every one of
3:56 am
his houses. he spent a long time staying as a guest in his homes. he must have seen more than he has made out. perhaps these skilled investigators from the fbi will be able to tease out from his memory what he knows. >> we actually have a statement from him duke of york, prince andrew to fox news i continue to regret my ill judged association with jeffrey epstein. of course, i am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required. now, what has been kind of the public sentiment toward that in great britain that you know of with him now kind of falling out and trying to account for it? >> i think there is absolutely no sympathy for him. the idea that he was so arrogant and so stupid as to do this interview and pretend all along that, you know, he couldn't have ever met this woman because he didn't sweat at the time. it was really bizarre. a lot of what he said didn't make sense. he can atone by helping the fbi. emily: right. thank you so much for joining us, miranda.

4:01 am
brian says just draght balloon. stave on helium. emily: good idea. brian: emily, there is a thing where you show up to watch the balloons being blown up. that's a thing. emily: i would prefer to see that like you see how the sausage is made on the you were east side. brian: i tried to do two things i never did before. tried to cross sixth avenue during a parade. steve: okay. brian: it took me hours. i had to go down 60 blocks to go up and over. so columbus day and veterans day wonderful holidays, but, please just give me a break in the parade so can i cross the street. steve: had they only been dragging the balloons it might have been a different story: enough about us. time to discuss the news. start with a fox news alert. the secretary of the navy is out. brian: do you believe that richard spencer asked to step down by defense secretary mark he is officer after disagreeing with the president on navy seal eddie gallagher's war crimes case.
4:02 am
emily: kevin corke is live at the white house with reaction to the controversy. good morning, kevin. >> good morning, geaugas. there is plenty of principles involved in this particular story. the secretary of the navy insists this simply wasn't about this one issue. it's a number of different issues that led to the termination of mr. spencer. let me first share part of a tweet. this from the president about eddie gallagher and big story following throughout. i was thought pleased, he says, with the way the navy seal eddie gallagher's trial was handled by the navy. he was treated very badly, but, despite, this was completely exonerated on all major charges. i then restored eddie's rank. he went on to say gallagher will retire peacefully with all the honors he has earned including triden trident pin. gallagher reacted. president trump you have my deepest gratitude and thanks. you stepped in numerous times and showed the true moral fiber by correcting
4:03 am
all the wrongs that was being done to me. >> unfortunately it has become apparent in this respect i no longer share the same understanding with the commander-in-chief who appointed me in regards to the key principle of good order and discipline. i cannot, in good conscience obey an order that i believe violates the sacred oath that i took in the presence of my family, my flag, and my faith to support and defend the constitution of the united states. so next up it's going to be ambassador to norway ken bratwyte. admiral moved moo into that position. president made clear he will be nominated for that post. back to you. steve: kevin, what really got mr. spencer in trouble was apparently he was talking to the white house about one scenario about what he would do. okay, we are going to say this in public but we are going to be doing something else at the same time he was telling the defense secretary, his boss, a different story. >> that is part of the
4:04 am
story. the underlying issue, unfortunately, is the feeling from the secretary that he wasn't getting candor in a number of different areas as it relates toe mr. spencer. unfortunately, the captain is out of a job this morning. brian: axios reported to the white house you wanted clarity. did you actually threaten to quit and they were trying to get an answer to that because they were pretty astounded that threaten to quit over the eddie gallagher story. it appeared in the "new york times." next day doing a seminar and speaking on stage i never said that never said i was going to quit. a few hours later he was out. >> he actually tweeted that he said i never said that unfortunately as you pointed out, it didn't take long for that to all unralph, guys. steve: it never does. kevin, thank you for the live report from the white house. brian: congressman michael waltz was looking into this case for while. he says, listen, not only has the secretary of the navy out of line in protesting this, he has got
4:05 am
bigger problems in the navy on spending, on cost overruns, on efficiency. and said in these cases, that the presidents went ahead and pardoned all three. there was some real problems with these cases. and the president did the right thing. >> there's a big difference, brian, between a mistake, even an error in judgment. and a war crime. and when you have men and women down range making these decisions in split seconds in the pressure of combat, they can't have lawyers back in washington with a 5,000-mile screwdriver second guessing and monday morning quarterbacking. big difference in that and the case there was another sergeant who walked in to an afghan village and machine gunned 16 afghans. that guy is sentenced to life. and he will never see the light of day. that's a war crime. the president is not even talking about that case. steve: he is right about that. hurt. so, we will keep you a prize of of that situation. talk about the man who used
4:06 am
to be the mayor of new york city for three terms. michael bloomberg who was once a democrat and then a republican. then an independent. now he is running as a democrat for president of the united states, here he is on his instagram story. >> i decided to run because i think it's time for a change at the top in the white house. donald trump has not been a good president. we need to change that and, also, this country is being pulled apart. we need to pull it together. and make sure that we help everybody across the country share in the great american dream. emily: it's notable that he came out of the gate saying that we are facing -- we as a country are facing a quote, existential threat. right away the other democratic candidate said you are trying to buy your way into the presidency. one of his closest advisor said he will spend whatever it takes because the stakes are so high. brian: 150 million probably. he doesn't want any donations will not be debates because that's the criteria currently that you have to have a certain amount of support and
4:07 am
donations to get onto the stage. and last time that stage was not getting as many viewers. when they first started doing debates. they had two sets. 18-millimeter people watched. last week's debates had 6 million watch. now there is back up to 17 candidates with michael bloomberg. in and maybe this shows that on the inside that joe biden is vulnerable and bloomberg feels as though he could fill that gap because joe biden has not had a strong launch. has not been strong on stage. has not been strong on the debates. he thinks there might be an avenue for it. the strange thing is, even though he has 16 opponents. he is only focused on the president. that could hurt the president as he just puts all his money into anti-trump ads. steve: well, but it seems like the entire field, with the exception of pete buttigieg seems to be fading. so maybe that's what michael bloomberg sees as his opening, his entree. steve bannon who has helped this president get elected and advised him, he says don't count out michael
4:08 am
bloomberg. >> the worst case he will do is make these democrats tougher. he is going to force a real conversation on the economy. all this crazy far left stuff they have been talking about, bloomberg is going to challenge that whatever you say about his lack of personality, all of that, he is a very successful businessman and a very savvy person at applying capital. brian: we watch these debates and say what planet are you on. decriminalize border crossings? let prisoners volt? medicare for all? let's destroy the oil and gas industry right away with the green new deal? and we have people on that stage excuse me, i'm getting a little scared. unless you are a member of the squad or aspiring member of the squad you look at that stage and wonder when joe biden going aren't we the party of obamacare and now you guys all hated it and won't bring up president obama? steve pan none's theory is if bloomberg brings a sanity to the debate, that would hurt the president. emily: we have to point out,
4:09 am
too the bloomberg media empire has basically said hands off any other democratic candidate. we won't investigate anyone but all the goes forward for the president. still the target. steve: the guy who started the network, michael bloomberg they won't investigate his rivals but they will investigate the guy who ultimately, whoever the democrat is we'll challenge. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about this. it looks as if right now adam schiff said yesterday regarding the impeachment, they might call more people. you know, they are in the midst of writing a report that they ultimately will hand over to the judiciary committee. but nancy pelosi and adam schiff have both said you know, we don't know exactly whether or not he will be impeached. there is some thinking in washington that perhaps, rather than impeachment, because it would place a lot of democrats in a bad spot in those toss-up districts. rather than impeach him, censure him because that is rarely done. that is as much damage as the house could do. remember, the house sends
4:10 am
the articles of impeachment to the senate. they would vote to convict if they don't the house has got nothing. >> we now have representative adam schiff saying that there is more work to be done on impeachment and that he needs to listen to his constituency rather than in the past when he was very sure that there was already impeachable twucket, take a look. >> certainly not for show. i mean there is more work to be done at the same time we already accumulated quite overwhelming evidence that the president, once again, sought foreign interference in an election conditioned official acts. we have another elections in which the president is threatening more foreign interference. at the same time you there, are still other witnesses, other documents that we would like to obtain. but we are not willing to go the months and months of rope adope in the courts which the administration would love for us to do. brian: i went out there and
4:11 am
decide whether a judge subpoena. want to get mike pompeo and mic mulvaney work your way through the courts and with an election coming up. you saw everyone ignore the democrats on wednesday and thursday whenever that debate was. how could they get anything done, let alone how could democrats get their voice out. senator john kennedy, he was senator kennedy was on also over the weekend said this about the impeachment process. he sees and smells politics. i think speaker pelosi is acting in a manner that is insincere even by the standards of congress. she is turning impeachment into a routine political weapon. i think nobody is above the law but nobody is beaten neath it. and i find it unconscionable that they have not allowed the president to defend himself on the house side. can't call witnesses can't offer rebuttal evidence.
4:12 am
steve: that would happen if it moved as a trial to the senate. emily, today is a big day in court. emily: we will find out whether mcgahn will have to answer to the subpoena, respond and testify. i think it's note being in all the discussions back and forth about the process, bear with me but it goes back about the fisa process. only safeguard we have. if the ultimate conclusion if it doesn't sully the entire investigation it does on the face of credibility. not allowed to hear other witnesses. americans can't see both sides clearly undermines the entire credibility of it for the average voter. brian: find out if don mcgahn has to answer the subpoena and appear in front of adam schiff or jerry nadler's committee. steve: ultimately the american people are looking in and seeing was this a fair deal? yes or no? brian: that's more mueller, less ukraine. jillian does everything. you don't discriminate. jillian: good morning. we are getting you caught

4:39 am
came out we had durham come out or people who know what durham is up to and mentioned that stuff on halper, this spy of some sort who was spying on both michael flynn and myself was being actually paid by the pentagon with a hefty sum of money to go after many people on the campaign the day after that you have this individual kevin clinesmith who by the way was an attorney who interviewed me from the department of justice. i know the "new york times" mentioned him as some sort of low level attorney for the doj. but i don't think was a low level attorney. this individual brought an entire delegation from washington, d.c. to interview me on february 2017. we now know he and some of the others who interviewed me are under criminal investigation i think the report is not going to be as pleasant as many people think it's going to be for the fbi. actually going to lead into probably criminal prosecution that durham is going to end up taking over for. brian: george, it's devastating. i think a lot of people like
