then to the state of ohio, house speaker john boehner defeating two tea party challengers in his bid for a 13th charm in congress. the u.s. is now joining the manhunt for the leader of a nigerian terror group behind the kidnapping of more than 270 young girls. the u.s. is sending military intelligence and law enforcement support to nigeria to assist in the hunting down of theç leader of boko haram and to help free the girls. this as we just learned that eight more girls have been kidnapped. last year the state department offered a $7 million reward for the warlords who have plans to sell those girls into slavery. an investigation is underway at this hour to try to figure out who is threatening republican congressman trey gowdy from south carolina.
3:07 am
gowdy got e-mails after being tapped to lead a select committee to investigate an attack on benghazi. the e-mails threatened to hurt him if he goes forwardç with those hearings. those hearings certainly are going forward this morning. fox news just confirming that the 12-member panel will include seven republicans and five democrats. we'll keep watching this story carefully. oklahoma city thunder superstar kevin durant is now the nba's most valuable player. listen to this moving acceptance speech and his real shout out to his mom. >> you made us believe. you kept us off the streets, put clothes on our back, food on the table. when you didn't eat, you made sure we ate. you went to sleep hungry. you sacrificed for us. you're the real mvp.

speech. those are your headlines. a perfect prelude to mother's day this sunday. don't forget. >> that's this sunday? i mean that's this sunday! >> of course you knew that. >> of course i knew it. thank you very much, heather. tomorrow "vanity fair" officially is going to be publishing, after ten years she's broken her silence. monica lewinsky. it will be on "vanity fair's" website tomorrow. "the new york post" has some ofç the excerpts. she writes it is time to burn the beret and burn the blue dress. >> in a preview she talks about being suicidal at times and wanting to reach out to somebody going through something of a similar fashion. she says this about how hillary called her a
3:09 am
narcissistic loony tune. "yes, i get it hillary clinton wanted it on record that she was lashing out at her husband's mistress. she may have blamed her husband for being inappropriate but i find her impulse to lash out at me troubling." >> she thinks it's all about timing. she'sç saying it's a lot about timing, let's clear the decks to get ready for 2016. >> take a listen to this great debate. >> i don't think this is actually relevant as we go forward into 2016 because it has no bearing on the ability of hillary clinton to be a national leader and whether she can lead our nation. >> any time monica lewinsky is in the news, it does not help either of the clintons. it brings back all sorts of bad memories, you know, certainly of the president's bad behavior. >> i really wonder if this
3:10 am
isn't an effort on the clintons' part to get that story out ofç the way. would "vanity fair" publish anything about monica lewinsky that hillary clinton didn't want in"vanity fair"? >> i haven't seen the whole article but from the excerpt i see, i don't think hillary looks great. she might be saying i've got to say something because i think i've turned a corner of my life. >> she is saying get it out now and america will chew on it for two years and by the time the campaign rolls around, yeah, we've already talked about that. what's curious is she's quite adamant, monica lewinsky stresses this was her, having sex with the president, was consensual. not like he forced her on it. she makes it very clear it was consensual. she says the only time sheç was abused was by his
3:11 am
cronies, the people who scapegoated her. >> she does mention she does feel taken advantage of. so if this is indeed on the part of the clintons to get this out of the way, this could be the second time she has been used by the clintons in the white house. let us know what you think about this. who does it help? does it help monica? does it help hillary? does it not help either one? let us know on facebook. >> you should call barbara walters. she got the interview. >> i called her thisç morning. barbara, i know you're up. i spent a lot of time with her, so i'd be curious. >> coming up straight ahead. >> a new rule banning parents from spanking their children in certain areas when they misbehave. we'll tell you where that is. there is a new rule on the books. we're going to explain. >> protesters refuse to let condoleezza rice speak at rutgers university, but something big just came out of that. it's big.

3:26 am
principal, talked to the principal, i believe in april, is that right, and got a letter that said he can read it during free time? >> i had spoke to them numerous times. in march they told him to put it away a coupleç of times, and he came home and said dad, they're telling me to put away my bible and i told him they can't do that. >> a couple of days ago, giovani, your teacher says you've got to put that away and you don't. then what did you ask her to do? >> i asked her to call my father. >> and she called your dad and said that you couldn't -- that -- go ahead. why do you think she said you had to put your bible away? >> because she didn't want me reading it. >> paul, why is it that teacher didn't want your son reading his bible during free reading time? >> that, i can't answer. it seemed they were very hostile about the whole

thing. i found that the voice message kind of speaks for itself.j4(p&c@ >> well, it does. i understand none of the other students were queried what they were reading at the time. so let's bring in the attorney right now, jeremy dice. jeremy, what's going on here? why do you think the school's got a problem with the bible? >> it's a hard question to answer. but what we do know is that students across america are permitted to read their bible while they're at school especially during free time in free reading periods like this. the bible is not contra band and shouldn't be treated as such. for a teacher to single out a student during free reading time is an egregious violatiof nf the constitution. >> absolutely. we've got a statement from the school board. they say broward county public schools respects and upholds the rights of students to bring personal religious materials to school, including the bible, and to read these before school, after school or during any free reading time during the school day. giovani, one of the things
3:28 am
is, i read in the local news stories down there in florida that apparently the school said that that was not a free reading time. you were supposed to be reading some other assigned book. is that right? >> no. that's not right at all. >> it was definitely free reading. paul, you had received word that during free reading time it would be okay for your son to read his bible? >> yes, i have received that. >> okay. so what do you want from the school? >> right now all we want is a written apology. if you made a mistake, be diligent enoughç to admit it, and everybody can move on and just allow my son and all the children in the entire school district to have that freedom to read their bible if they choose to do so during free reading time. >> jeremy, that's fair; right? >> i would think so. for the largest school district in the united states to be able to walk across the street and say we're sorry our teacher tried to remove the bible during a free reading period, i don't think that's a tall order to ask.
3:29 am
students in america are permitted to read their bible while they're at school. >> giovani is no longer in that teacher's classroom. he has been moved toç another one as he concludes the year. >> giovani, paul, jeremy, thank you for joining us. what do you think about that? why did that particular teacher crack down on that particular book, the bible? go ahead and send us an e-mail, you can facebook us or tweet us. next up on the rundown, he oversaw the agency accused of leaving our veterans to die on a secret waiting list. should the head of the v.a. step down? not so fast. the white house has a different idea. they want to keep him. parents, how do you punish your children when they're misbehaving? now there is a school on the books in at least one place that says you don't get to decide. first happy birthday to lone survivor actor alexander. he is 22.

3:35 am
children's mercy hospital.ç a policy that says you cannot use any sort of spanking. if they see it happening, they will bring in a representative from child services to deal with it, giving alternatives such as bubbles and coloring to make the situation simmer. >> it's not even a ban on spanking. it's a ban on any sort of, let's see, hitting of any kind. and the goal of the hospital is if they see something escalating they're going to try to defuse it because they don't want it to lead anything else. if a staff member sees something escalating, get the kid a coloring book or bubbles. if somebody gives their kid a spafrpg or something like -- a spank or something like that, sounds like they're going to call in a social worker. a lot of people say we're not spankers. there are a lot of people in this world who discipline theirç children with a spank. >> they don't define it as hitting. here they blend the two
3:36 am
together. they say no hitting. they're bringing them in together in terms of discipline. on one hand, anybody who has had a kid in the hospital understands it is a stressful time. it is the point where you feel the least amount of control over a situation. for one more access to the ability to control a situation in your family is hard for those parents out there right now and have that taken away. but if things are escalated, it could get tense in a hospital. >> so this kansas city,ç missouri, mercy hospital says we looked at these studies and it said you basically raise bullies if you start spanking kids. are they taking the parent out of parenting? are they going to a place they don't belong? or is this hospital doing something that is necessary on behalf of what they think for the child? >> are they trying to create peace or trying to take your rights away? >> sure. some families do spank. if you've got somebody in the hospital and suddenly you've got to deal with the social worker because you
3:37 am
gave your kid a whack on the butt, that doesn't make it any easier. >> they say if it leaves a mark. they're not going to decide if it's over the line unless it leaves a mark. >> they're going to be looking at this. is it a distraction to the overall health and well-being to kids in the hospital? let us know what you think. facebook or twitter. >> it is 24 minutes before the top of theç hour. heather nauert. >> speaking of spanking, there may be a little bit of a political spanking in washington. the house of representatives now inching closer to charging former i.r.s. official lois lerner with contempt. there is a meeting to be held today to consider that as well as a g.o.p. request for a special prosecutor to investigate the targeting scandal. >> the way this looks, you know, it looks so political, a political process, pure and simple, aimed at trying to appeal toç the political base.

4:08 am
vanity fair. the whole thing comes out tomorrow. we do have some excerpts, which it's curious, she makes it very, very clear that the times she had sex with then president of the united states, bill clinton, it was consentual. it was between consenting adults. he didn't force himself on her. didn't abuse her. the only people who abused her were his cronies, it sounds like, when she was made the scapegoat and was all to protect the clintons. >> right. that way she felt taken advantage of and also suicidal. she reveals during the height of the scandal, actually prompting her to write and actually get some word out here in the vanity fair article and help others who may be feeling like a victim going through something like this. >> i really feel bad for her. she points out to what happens at rutgers with the 18-year-old who felt humiliation. she said she felt same to that in the same fashion as she turns 40. shear an excerpts from the article which has not been fully released yet. she said my first thought as i

was getting up to spied, that's the worst thing she said about me, i should be lucky. yes, i get it. hillary clinton wanted it on the record that she was lashing out at her husband's mistress. she may have faulted her husband for being inappropriate, but i find her impulse to blame the woman and herself troubleing. >> and things that we know from her then friend in the 1990s said hillary referred to monica lewinsky as that narcistic looney toon. what's curious is why is vanity fair publishing this right now? we've got one theory from lynn cheney, you're about to hear, and also we've got a republican strategist and a democratic strategist because the timing is curious, don't you think? we haven't heard of monica lewinsky out of the blue 'til now. why? listen to this. >> i don't think this is actually relevant as we go
4:10 am
forward into 2016 because it really has no bearing on the abilities of hillary clinton to be a national leader and whether she can lead our nation. >> any time monica lewinsky is in the news, it does not help either of the clintons. it brings back all sorts of bad memories, certainly of the president's bad behavior. >> i really wonder if this isn't an effort on the clintons' part to get that story out of the way. would vanity fair publish anything about monica lewinsky that hillary clinton didn't want in vanity fair? >> probably not. my question is, is vanity fair going to do something with broderick or gennifer flowers or paula jones? if they're doing, so to speak, monica lewinsky -- if you google mistresses of bill clinton, there is a shocking number of people who come up. >> the timing of this is certainly coming under question. we're going to have the opportunity to talk with lynn cheney in a bit here on the show.

we asked you what you thought in the meantime and barbara is saying this: monica may be the only honest person in a sad situation. we know the clintons aren't truthful. >> theresa posted on facebook, hillary stayed with bill for her own agenda to once again occupy the white house. >> and ralph's up and he says what difference does it make? you're funny. >> mark saying it's all good until a republican does it, then all hell breaks loose. >> yeah, there is a little bit of a double standard. continue to e-mail us, tweet us and facebook us. >> she was over -- wasn't she at oxford? she got a degree at oxford in london. >> she did. but she said she had a difficult time finding jobs after. moments of being stressed. >> she says it's time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress. >> okay. >> none of this would have happened if that blue dress disappeared, or she had gone to the cleaners. >> 7:11. >> you're right.

press were able to get. that's totally unacceptable and i think it broke basically john boehner did the right thing by coming out strongly and putting one of our great new members of congress, trey gowdy, who will do a great job as chairman. >> as we look in, you're in the thick of things in washington, d.c., it does look like stonewalling, in addition to the fact they would send you guys documents that were completely blank because they had been completely redacted where you couldn't even tell where it was about, which is kind of nuts. they've also made it impossible for to you talk to the people who were there. it sounds like -- from what we've heard some of you guys talk about -- these guys have been threatened with their jobs. if you say anything, there goes your pension. we might sue you. will witnesses be able to testify in fronts of your committee? >> yeah. i think that's the important point, too, is we're going to have good witnesses like greg hicks, who was the number one man, after ambassador stevens
4:18 am
was murdered in cold blood by al-qaeda terrorists, greg hicks was the man in charge. greg hicks has been put out to pasture by this administration. he's been said that he's not a credible witness. but i think what we're going to find through this investigation is that guys like greg hicks, who were on the ground, the station chief that was there in libya working for the c.i.a., all of those people are going to be extremely credible. if we can ever get the rest of the e-mails out of the administration, we're going to find out -- we're going to get to the bottom of what really happened in benghazi and who made up these most ridiculous stories. >> the white house goes well, we had you, congress, you've had a bunch of investigations, plus there was that arb, accountability review board, they looked at things. but the arb talked to greg hicks, to your point, and he told them that the reason chris stevens was in benghazi was because hillary clinton personally asked him to see whether or not they could establish a permanent post there. that's what he told the arb.
4:19 am
but the arb, when they finally released the report, it said chris stevens wound up in benghazi independently, which is crazy. that's a flat out lie! >> yeah. we haven't gotten to the bottom yet of what was chris stevens actually doing there. he did meet with people that day. i think that's something that the committee should look into, who exactly did he meet with. i think the committee should trio meet with those folks, or at least have investigators meet with those folks. there is still a lot of information out here. i don't blame anyone but the white house. the american people should blame no one but the white house. they had an opportunity and they have a responsibility as leaders in this country to provide the legislative branch of government all of the documentation when the legislative branch asks. they did not do it and they get what they deserve on this. >> well, to a lot of people, it looks like there was a conspiracy and a cover-up and a lot of people would like the answers and it's up to you guys now. all right.

>> sure. put it out now. a couple years in advance, and then by the time people go to vote, they'll be oh, that's old news. vanity fair is going to do this. do you think they're going to do something with paul paula jones or gennifer flowers? >> no. i think that, you know -- i have a great empathy, sympathy for monica lewinsky and i do think she's been suffering. but i'm sure if you were able to sort it all out, vanity fair probably reached out to her and the article came about that way. >> so let's talk about why you're here. not only to see steve and elisabeth on the couch. >> and wish awe happy birthday. >> but talking about james madison. what is underappreciated and what needs to be revisitd about this founding father? >> his accomplishments were such great height and scope and depth, father of the constitution, crucial to the founding of the first government. president when the country went

to war for the first time under the constitution. so all of that, plus a really interesting life story. there is one story that occurred to me when you asked me about monica lewinsky. dolly madison was the subject of whispering campaigns. she was just a little too attractive. >> really? >> yeah. >> attracted for him? >> no. but too attractive to not attract this kind of notice. and she at one point was said to be having an affair with x. and y, a friend of the madisons, stood up and defended her in an embarrassing way. so madison, went to x's house, the person rumored to be having an affair with dolly. personally invitessed him to dinner. it was a very clever move because what it said to everyone is the secretary of state had gone over there, invited the fellow to dinner. he came to dinner on f street. he wasn't having an affair with dolly madison. i think it's useful and you know this. even when you're looking at past
5:19 am
times, to always be aware that there is another scenario playing out. >> the past is prolog. >> it seems like those -- what would he say today about the president's role? >> well, he'd be appalled by the scope and reach of the federal government. but i think he would also be very troubled that the president seems to decide for himself what the law should be. we won't enforce immigration laws even though they are on the books. they've been passed by the congress. we'll delay mandates and requirements under the affordable care act, even though that's no prerogative of the president. so i think he would be troubled at the constitution having become not the rule of law, but the rule of -- >> it's also important in your book, you chronicle anybody who thinks america is in hard times and never been so bad, how about a president standing, sitting by himself in a horse in the
