additional protest. >> i don't know if we are going to have any issues tonight but please remember we have a responsibility. the officers took an oath to protect life and property and these are are some of the things we are expected to do. >> and shot in the face and shoulder. and that is a bloody helmet here. and doctors decided not to move. it and that is in twitter. violence against police are unacceptable. parents condemned the shootings and it is very active and they
have several leads they are following and keep them updated. >> three people in custed ony and no word as to whether or not they will be charged. >> no details if they are still there or released. and police are not commenting further than that situation was part of the investigation. >> garrett, thank you. >> now hillary clinton e-mail scandal rocking the capitol and raising questions of how it will affect her anticipated run for the white house. this as the obama administration keeps its distance from the controversy. here's more on that part of the story, ed? >> good to see you, jenna late yesterday, the state department internal watch dog put out a blistering report that looked at the year 2011 and hillary
clinton was secretary of state and state department employees wrote 1 billion e-mails and only 71000 of them would be kept to be in the public record. that is raising new questions of whether thousands of e-mails are deleted unnecessarily. that is on top of the associated press lawsuit that put the white house on defense. ap, is now petitioning for the records of the secretary of state when she was in office. josh earnest when pressed on that and questions of why the former secretary deleted tens of thousands of e-mails, he put the onous on the clinton camp listen. >> as it relates to compliance with the federal records act. secretary clinton and her team have taken all of the personal e-mails related to her official business of secretary of state and provided them to the state
department so they could be archived and maintained. >> reporter: republicans on the special benghazi commission said that is not good enough for them because essentially the former secretary was the arbitrator of the e-mails to delete and she deemed personal and not official business and why republicans on the panel want a third party arbitrator. >> we need to get to the truth. and because she chose to conduct. and this is of her own choosing, she chose to conduct state department business on a private e-mail account and it is incumbent on her to turn over her server and so we can do an examination. >> reporter: you talk about the impact on the democratic presidential race. martin o'mally said he is tired
of hearing about this. and when i was a governor they kept them all and a shot as a potential rival. >> we'll go back to that. thank you. ed henry, thank you. >> and no danger of hacking and the e-mail controversy shoes "no pass, no play" signs of going away. aides to bill clinton had concerns about setting up a private account for hillary clinton when she became secretary of state. they worried it would leave the system vulnerable to hackers and not aware that she would use it for all of the official corspopdant. and chris wallace is the anchor of fox news sunday. two most influential newspapers in the nation have different takes, according to the new york
times and democrats are saying it is not a big deal and going to blow over. washington post say democrats are worried about the crisis and suggest that hillary clinton is not ready for a presidential campaign, and so which is it? >> you get your choice. i think the new york times was talking to not democrats if they are not concerned about what is going on here. and they should be. look. at some point the e-mail scandal will end because hillary clinton took the bold step of saying she deleted all of the other e-mails and when she said deleted, it will be detried. and there will be no way to recover them if they get access to the server. and it seems to me, a lot of the good things that happen in the clinton years. peace and prosperity and all of
that under the pressure of the republican house. and there were also bad things. the scandal and legal parsipling of words. and it reminds democrats and independents and republicans of the bad part of the clinton years and i would think that if you are a democrat the idea of a coronation and hillary clinton being their nominee, it would be a cause of some concern for democrats you have to wonder how she would wear after last tuesday. >> i fully complied with every rule i was governed by and that is one thing that bothers the critics, is that she was not necessarily following the rules if you read the state department and national archives requirements, she was not rules, but the argument and the point they make is that hillary clinton and bill clinton in the past,
sort of made their own rules. >> yeah, and i must say i pecked up on that comment. it struck me and in the new's conference she looked down on the book on the podium in front of her, and that struck me as an legalistic statement i was not, i department violate rules that i was governed by. is there a specific reasoning to say that and whether you were governed by that rule. she didn't seem to be in the spirit of those rules. i suspect that is something she wanted to say precisely she wanted to say. and that reminds you of the things about the clinton words when it was a discussion of the meaning of is is. >> that is another thing that
comes to mind. and another thing that is embroiling washington, the nuclear talks with iran and president obama efforts to forge a relationship with that regime there. and a big topic in the 2016 campaign. a lot of republican contenders are seeking out a hard line approach and a number of them signed on to the leader from the freshman arkansas senator suggesting that the deal that obama administration signs with iran could be undone as long as congress is not involved in voting on that. >> there is a letter and two wishes the letter and priority of sending the open leader to the leaders of iran. i think a number of people in washington wonder of the wisdom of that, it gave the obama administration something to fire back o. if they say here are our concerns about this deal and
about congress not having a role in it you would have an argument on the merits. it was instead whether it made sense and proper to send to the iran officials. it is an odd coalition hard liner ares in iran and members of congress. and the danger for republicans they are going to want as many democrats to sign on after the deal is made if it is made to say congress has to have a role. they need two-thirds and 67 votes and 13 democrats. to the degree they make it more partisan it will be harder to get democrats on board. one last point, it is how bitter are the situation in washington is and a president has a lot of that to blame himself. he took executive actions going around congress and he doesn't have a lot of friends in
congress when it come tots separation of powers and rights and prerogatives of the congressional branch. marco rubio and ted cruz all signed the letter. >> you can catch chris on fox news sunday and focus on the e-mail scandal for hillary clinton. and nuclear negotiations. and sitting down, news makers on both of those hot topics. >> and a nba game and the brawl that sent one man to the hospital with a stab wound and then there's this. iraqi troops battling for iraqi. and the terrorist are not giving up the city easily. and new york times said hillary clinton is too big to fail as
a presidential candidate. go to fox news.com/"happening now" and click on americas asking to join the conversation. body? even if you're treating your crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis an occasional flare may be a sign of damaging inflammation. and if you ignore the signs, the more debilitating your symptoms could become. learn more about the role damaging inflammation may be playing in your symptoms with the expert advice tool at crohnsandcolitis.com. and then speak with your gastroenterologist. 40% of the streetlights in detroit, at one point, did not work. you had some blocks and you had major thoroughfares and corridors that were just totally pitch black. those things had to change. we wanted to restore our lighting system in the city. you can have the greatest dreams in the world, but unless you can finance those dreams, it doesn't happen. at the time that the bankruptcy filing was done, the public lighting authority had a hard time of finding a bank.

over the islamic state. jon? >> reporter: jon, this is the largest ground offensive in the fight against isis in iraq. and the iraqi forces are pushing deeper in tikrit. and surrounding isis militants that it are held up in the city center. isis is fighting back and trying to resist the advances by using road side bombs and sniper fire to take out those iraqi troops and shiite militia fighters as you mentioned, jon. >> they are pushing deeper in tikrit. and at this point iraqi fighter ares have taken estimated 80 percent of the city. and this is an important fight as we talked about because of tikrit's location. it is to it baghdad to the south and mosul to the north. and it is it a important test to

john thank you. as the white house sos one of the nation's biggest newspaper from the republican senator. and who wins and who loses in this dust up and are we losing perspective in what is at stake here. and how mobile phones is making it easier to stakeout a spot. rrn ♪ building aircraft, the likes of which the world has never seen. this is what we do. ♪ that's the value of performance. northrop grumman.
the former government. they seem to be outside of the american government and divorced by constitutional principles and security interest of the american people. you wrote on this topic of what we can learn from the last few days james. you say we can learn a lot bite white house's reaction. >> the reality is the republicans in the congress and the president have figured out that they can't put through a veto proof bill and put it on the president's desk and the president realize he can't send the treaty to congress and get it through the senate. and so the actions not going to happen in the house of representative.
and so both sides are playing to the partisan crowd. >> interesting. you mentioned there is often great tension between the white house and congress on international and foreign policy decisions. can you give our viewers the information on that. the white house and congress at odds in the tension or bad for us with the national security in hand? >> it is the reality. and this is often how congress and the president duke things out. and not specifically on the form of the letter and open disputes between the president and congress are not unusual at all. the adoption of the nato treaty or the league of nations after world war i. they are divisive debates and many of the president's own party look back just a few years ago to the run up to the iraq war and we should have a fulsome
debate about this. we blindly followed the president in the war and the same people are saying congress should sit up and sit on their hands and how he will handle the biggest security dilemma of this kind. certainly something that happens incredible and dramatic impact on the u.s. role for many years to come. >> and that leads to the next question, as to whether or not we have taken the eye off of the ball here. the saudis have already signed an agreement with south korea over the nuclear negotiations and i am using that term loosely. and they are reading themselves for the pakistanis. are we not paying attention
>> people are focusing on the partison debate. and one interesting thing you didn't hear the president or anything in the letter is wrong. and the conservative in the letter are factual and that is not the only problem. and for example. the congress can't stop the president from the united states going to the nations and lift the sanctions on iran. he has the power as president to do that. >> what do you think should be done now? we have had a political debate over the letter, it is petering out a bit over the week. what is at stake here? >> it is easy it will end badly. there is no way. and the reality is we sat around for years and did nothing to relieve people over the concern
of the iranian nuclear program. and so the reality we'll have to live with a screwed up policy ing to address the threats and hope and pray that one, cares about this and has better answers than this guy and hopefully more time. because we are doomed in the next two years i am sorry. >> and james it is fair to point out the negotiations with iran are about a decade and they are buying for more time and working toward a nuclear weapon. james, even though it is sobering we look forward to your thoughts on the topic. thank you. >> and isis cuts a brutal path over the middle east how will america and the world respond? iran is fighting isis on the ground and through iraqi security forces and many say what is happening with isis
leads back to how we are dealing with iran. we have an interesting presentation. unholy war. the march of isis by bret baier starts tomorrow night on the fox news channel. >> it can be tough for new moms to get back to work they are taking a whole new approach. it starts with 16 weeks worth of. and hearing graphic testimony on the murder of a young mi t police officer. molly? >> reporter: we heard from a medical examiner today. and also moved on to the testimony of the man who allegedly was kidnapped by tasarnaev and his brother tamer lintasarnaev. we'll have more details coming up.
>> the new approach, and a new way of looking at maternity leave that some may say change the way corporations handle families. this is allowing for 16 weeks of paid maternity leave and new moms return to the office. they work only 30 hours a week for the first six months back all while receiving their full
salary. chuck, we have growing families on our team including my own. and why you did it is a key question. tell our viewers why you did it. >> diversity and this global policy addresses the women in our work place. and one of the reasons we did it for retension. we have hundred thousand employees on a global basis and 35000 of those are women, 21 percent, 21 percent are women in senior leadership positions and when women go out on materpity leave, of those leave. >> women might work with the company for a long time and come back to the job, 65 percent of them decide they can't work for that one year.
>> for those that leave in the first years 65 percent. >> that is a lot. and that was a motivation? >> there is a few others. first of all retention. in order to replace an individual that leaves the company, you have training and development and recruitment. >> absolutely. >> and knowledge. the way in which they approach and understanding of our business and that is difficult to replace. >> you didn't want to lose those people you invested time and money and how do you afford it and they are working 30 hours and you are paying them for 40. >> like any other policy there is a short- term cost and medium return benefit. for global customers like ourselves. 47 billion is being lost every year as a result of not keeping the women in our businesses.
and by being able to do this, for our employees and if other companies follow it would save 19 billion. >> billion with a b. it makes sense and feels good to talk about it. it makes sense financially. and this will go in affect april 1st. i am curious on this part. what do you say to people who say chuck, the woman next to me is getting paid 40 hours and only here 30. how are you going to handle that? >> when women leave the work place for and having the baby. it gives opportunity for others to step up in a leadership position and test them. and so one of the benefits for us is. that we train our managers to be able to handle that and the women come back to all they left and we think it is it an absolutely fantastic way. one to develop our people and to
position ourselves to keep that talent in our business. >> the final question and interesting for me to learn that five percent of the companies offer full paid maternity leave and if you work for a company smaller than 50 people you are owed no paid time off. and i am curious your hope is, you are a dad and work in corporate mefrjt what is your hope about the policy and impact the broader look of maternity leave. >> it is around retention and training and development and loss of the knowledge that the individual has. and we think a small or medium company can take advantage of it. and hope others follow. >> it certainly caught our attention. chuck, thank you for your time. jon? >> all right.

frustrating. >> reporter: exactly why alex invested culous. it allows customers to skip long lines with the cell phone. and they come and registered the cell phone and texted when his turn is coming up? qless allowses them at dmv and edcaution and health care. and anywhere people wait. >> reporter: customers who wait often experience line anxiety, wondering if they picked the fastest line or someone behind them is cutting. he said qless allows them to wait how and where they want. >> you call this reducing perceived wait times. >> yes, people wait at home or work they don't feel like they are waiting. >> the cutting edge technology
is already cutting the feel of lines in the university registration and industries like health care and retail. >> it is so busy here. >> she can't wait for qless to reach the danbury dmv. >> i need to be able to get in and out in a timely fashion. >> they now have 30 million users and claimed to have already saved 800 years of time waiting in line. that's it from here. back to you. >> i like that the 800 years. >> thank you. >> and we need 800 years back. please. >> you are a new mom and you can use that time all kinds of ways and time for a check on the markets. stocks are bounding back. and we are live in the floor of the new york stock exchange for more on that. and a fiery crash on the major interstate could snarl traffic
