tv   Shepard Smith Reporting  FOX News  May 15, 2017 12:00pm-1:01pm PDT

12:00 pm
through that press briefing. another exciting one. we will be back here tomorrow. join us then as well. i'm melissa francis. coming up next here's >> shepard: it's noon on the west coast. 3:00 in d.c. where we're watching new fallout over the firing of the fbi director, james comey. now some republicans are refusing to defend president trump or call him out. lawmakers talking about who they want running the bureau next. a professional, not a politician. also, new accusations that the syrian dictator bashar al-assad is carrying outs executions and has built a crematorium to hide evidence. and north korea marks a dangerous and new milestone with its largest ballistic missile flight so far. the north koreans claim this thing can carry a nuke.
12:01 pm
let's get to it. first from the fox news deck on this busy monday, the white house still will neither confirm nor deny that president trump has tapes of his conversations with the former fbi director james comey. analysts say that is making the white house's effort to respond to criticism of his firing even more difficult. the search is on for a new fbi director. here's what the president said about it when speaking with the crown prince of abu-dhabi. >> thank you all very much. thank you. >> shepard: that's today. friday president trump warned james cocmey not the speak out
12:02 pm
about his firing. it's worth noting the president put tapes in quotes there, similar to when he put "wires tapped" in march when he made his unfounded claim that president obama ordered surveillance at trump tower. the president said the use of quotes opened the phrase to a broad definition of surveillance. the president used "tap" not in quotes. so far the white house has not said what the president meant when he tweeted about tapes. sean spicer said the president had nothing further on that issue. the republican said at the judiciary committee members, lindsey graham called the president's tweet inappropriate and the republicans need to have comey testify before the panel. >> i would advise the president not the tweet about the investigation as we go forward. the russians interfered in our election. i don't think they changed the
12:03 pm
outcome but the president needs to back off here and let the investigation go forward. we need to call comey and got to the bet tom of this. >> shepard: senator graham says he does not believe that the president is the target of an investigation involving possible collusion between the trump campaign and russian officials. on the president's suggestion that tapes may exist of his conversations with james comey, another republican on the senate judiciary committee says history shows us respects recording their conversations is not necessarily the best idea. here's what senator mike lee of utah told chris wallace on "fox news sunday." >> if that's true, you think the president should turn over any relevant tapes to this investigation to the congress? >> i think it's probably inevitable, if there are such recordings. they will be subpoenaed and probably have to turn them over. >> shepard: when it comes to the firing of james comey, nikki
12:04 pm
haley told abc's "this week" president trump is a president of action. >> the president is a ceo of the country. he can fire and fire whoever he wants. whether you agree with it or not, it's the true. he's trying to find his own team. were there better ways to do that? that's for everybody else to decide. >> nikki haley. as for the potential tapes, she said she's assumes she's being taped everywhere. james comey has declined an invitation to testify behind closed doors tomorrow before the senate intelligence committee. but "the new york times" and others are reporting he's willing to testify as long as it's out in public for everybody to see. one key issue is a white house dinner between james comey and president trump just days after the inauguration. the. has one story. he says he thought james comey arranged the dinner and that comey told him the fbi was not investigating him.
12:05 pm
the "new york times" and others report that president trump invited james comey and the president asked repeatedly whether the fbi director would pledge a loyalty to him. according to the times, director comey declined. our chief white house correspondence john roberts is live at the white house. what is the white hou saying about these potential tapes if anything at all? >> as you pointed out, shep, they're not saying a lot. about all of the reporting going on about tapes, people are saying was there an oval office recording mechanism much like in the nixon administration when he recorded private conversations of everybody that came in. even if there was an oval office system, probably wouldn't pertain to the comey meeting because he would have had meeting dinner in the room off the oval office and more likely either in the residence or in one of the official rooms in the main mansion here at the white house. so that would imply that the president had some sort of recording system that was
12:06 pm
available throughout mansion. it's not known at this point when the president says "tapes" are talking about a recording device or other conversation or merely trying to play with the media there and james comey saying maybe there are tapes. here's what sean spicer said about it at the briefing a short time ago. >> is the white house intending to furnish that information as requested in writing? >> the president has nothing further on that. >> does that mean the president will deny -- >> i was very clear that the president would have nothing further on that last week. >> is the situation with the legislative branch -- >> listen, i made it clear what the president's position is on that issue. hunter? >> so the president and the press secretary saying nothing, shep, whether or not there are tapes and whether or not the tapes would be provided to congress because there are indications that a lot of people up there on capitol hill would
12:07 pm
like to hear them if there are tapes. i would pause it, shep, it's unlikely there would be tapes of a dinner unless somebody had a recording device nearby. the two phone calls are a different story. all of the president's phone calls are logged and some of them are transcribed, shep. >> what about this matter of discussion of a possible special prosecutor? ken starr, the one that comes to mind for most people. they end up expanding investigations. there's republicans on board? >> the special prosecutor statute as applied to ken starr is no longer in existence. a special prosecutor would have to be provided and named by the department of justice. there's been a lot of complaints from democrats about the need for a special prosecutor over the weekend. some democrats said they would refuse to consider the name of the nominee in confirmation hearings until a special prosecutor is appointed. i asked sean spicer.
12:08 pm
here's how he responded. >> there's frankly no need for a special prosecutor. you have two senate committees looking into this, the fbi is conducting their own review. and i think if you even look at what acting director mccabe said, they have the resources they need. >> one thing that didn't come up at the briefing, records of a massive staff shakeup. i'm toll a massive staff shakeup is "nonsense." there's some talk there may be changes to the communications shop after what happened with the comey firing last tuesday. also told that the white house chief of staff reince priebus who has been in a lot of reporting "on the bubble" since january also may not hold the complete favor of the president at this moment in time. shep, we've heard this before and nothing happened. could be another case of that.
12:09 pm
>> shepard: john roberts at the white house. thank you. let's go to josh gersstein. any new news? >> i thought it was interesting, shep, during the briefing that sean spicer tried to put together another rationale for the firing of james comey saying the president thought that firing comey would be difficult for the president and would hurt him in some way. but suggesting again that maybe didn't have anything to do with the russian investigation. so spicer trying to stir up some dust over that issue again. >> shepard: is there any agreement now on how this thing should go forward? is it separated completely along partisan lines? >> well, there seems to be some indication that some republicans might be open to a special prosecutor at a certain point. marco rubio said maybe we'll get to a point that that would be
12:10 pm
appropriate. the issue is muddled together with this question of replacement of the fbi director with democrats as we discussed earlier saying they wouldn't vote to confirm anyone until a special prosecutor is in place. that leaves open the question of how the white house will get somebody confirmed for the fbi's director job. those votes for director con formation votes over the last 45, 50 years have been unanimous. 98-0. 93-1 unanimous consent. so to have a party line vote on confirming an fbi director would be an extraordinary departure from what's go on in the recent decades. >> shepard: on the list of potential candidates, a number of people, politicians and judges. this idea of a politician as the fbi director, it's a new one and doesn't seem to be faring well. >> it doesn't. the white house will have to step apart from some of those possibilities like we heard
12:11 pm
senator john cornyn was one of those interviewed as i was representative mike rogers. i think they're both held in highest steam in the congress. you've had senator lindsey graham and some others suggest that this is not the time to set a new precedent of having a politician as fbi director. it would be wiser to pick somebody from the fbi's ranks or a long-term prosecutor as we've seen, deputy attorney general, maybe has the criminal division at the justice department. those are a greater possibility than a politician. >> shepard: regarding the issues that we hear from people dale live. we did friday, we have today. then we hear the talk of people having great concern behind the scenes. could you give us what you though about this sort of sentiment? >> well, there's nervousness as we heard in the briefing about the tape recording system and
12:12 pm
whether there is one or isn't one. it was just like a flat out nonresponse from the white house today. this is an administration that i think has struggled to find people to join its ranks. some because some people were not willing to do so. in other cases because they may have made statements that were seen as disloyal to president trump. they were scratched from the list. you look at that pool again when you can't get assurances that you're not being recorded in your private conversations in the white house. >> josh gerstein from politco. thanks. >> thanks, shep. >> shepard: republicans and democrats don't agree on much of anything but when it comes to the search of the next head of the fbi, they have seemed to find common ground. ahead what senators of both sides are requesting. we'll look at some of the top potential candidates, including merrick garland, the judge
12:13 pm
republicans refused to confirm to the supreme court. that and the rest of the news coming up from the fox news deck on this monday afternoon. tech: when your windshield needs to be fixed... trust safelite autoglass. for these parents, driving around was the only way to get their baby to sleep. so when their windshield got cracked... customer: we can't drive this car. tech: ...they wanted it fixed right. so they scheduled with safelite. our exclusive trueseal technology means a strong, reliable bond, every time. at safelite, we stand behind our work. bye, bye. because the ones you love, sit behind it. (parents whisper jingle) safelite repair, safelite replace.
12:14 pm
12:15 pm
>> shepard: lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are urging president trump to avoid picking a politician to replace james comey in the fbi. republicans senator lindsey graham said the president should pick somebody within the fbi ranks. the minority leader, chuck
12:16 pm
schumer, said the new fbi director should be someone of not a partisan background. former president obama's supreme court nominee, merrick garland is in the mix. the former aid to mitch mcconnell said the senate majority leader supports the idea of merrick garland as the next fbi director. even though he and other republicans refuse to hold hearings for him as a supreme court justice. catherine herridge has more. catherine? >> merrick garland, is that a name the president would possibly consider in the move to name the new fbi director? >> the search for a new fbi director is being handled by the department of justice. my expectation would be as they conduct that search, they'll present names to the president. they're the ones leading the
12:17 pm
effort. >> a senate republican that sits on the committee that will handle the hearings for the next fbi director said sunday that garland is an inspired choice. >> it's a great suggestion. absolutely serious about it. this is a very different post than the supreme court of the united states. if president trump were to nominate merrick garland, his nomination would be welcomed by people on both sides of the aisle in the senate. >> the administration source told fox news the interviews over the weekend were strong and impressive. they included fran townsend and alice fisher that served under the bush administration as a senior justice department official overseeing the criminal division. the significance of nominating the first woman as the fbi director is not lost on the decision team. >> shepard: some of the other candidates are former fbiers,
12:18 pm
themselves, veterans. >> other candidates are adam lee. the special agent in charge of the richmond virginia office, andrew mccabe, the acting director and michael j. garcia, former prosecutor and associate judge on new york's highest court. john cornyn, a former texas attorney general was interviewed against long with mike rogers and also on the short list, a bush appointee, henry e. hudson. over the weekend, republicans and democrats urged the president to avoid a partisan choice. >> whoever the future director should be is a future law enforcement professional. i hope the president won't choose a political nominee. >> it's time to pick somebody within the ranks or such a reputation that has no political
12:19 pm
background at all that can go into the job on day one. >> today brad sherman of california told fox news that he backs a special counsel and could not what say what senate tactic might get them there. the republicans have the majority, shep. >> shepard: thanks, catherine. a new legal showdown over the president's travel ban. the order that would suspend the refugee program and temporarily prevent new visas for anybody from iran, libya, somalia, sudan, syria and yemen. all pro dominantly muslim countries. a three-judge panel of the ninth u.s. circuit court heard argument. the unusual thing about this, it was streaming live and a lot of news channels took it. the trump administration trying to persuade the court to reinstate the ban. the real issue is whether president trump's comments before he took office about banning muslims from the country
12:20 pm
and about muslim bans in paperwork that they had put together including website provide in totality a legal ground to rule his order unconstitutional. supporters say it would increase national security and others say it discriminates against religion. sean spicer said the order is law ful and will be upheld. the white house announcing a global cyber attack affected more people than we knew. coming up, the incredible scope of this attack and how you can protect yourself. all finished.

12:24 pm
you heard about over the weekend that so far hit more than 300,000 computers around the world. still happening. the white house is reporting on it now. homeland security adviser tom bossert. the attack called problems for more than 150 countries including the u.s. it freezes your computer and rather than stealing your files, it holds them hostage and requires you to pay a ransom to get your own access to your own feels. investigators are still trying to figure out who is behind this. cold to malware tech, a group that monitors this sort of thing, the dots on this map show where the so-called wanna cry virus -- that's what they call it -- where it's hit in the last 24 hours. it started this time friday and has been going through the weekend. a lot of people got hit today after the weekend.
12:25 pm
there it is. bossert does confirm it's hit american issues. fed ex reported issues friday. affected britain's national health services and russian's foreign ministry. now the sun newspaper, which is a corporate cousin of ours, reports that the russian president vladimir putin is blaming the united states government. the hackers used vulnerability from leaked nsa documents. here's a look at what people saw if it hit. a scream demanding payment in bitcoin. it's a digital currency not regulated by any one company. pay hundreds of dollars and you get your file back. trace gallagher with more. trace? >> the way this works, the ransomware that is malicious software is pretty effective exploiting microsoft systems.

12:27 pm

12:35 pm
missile flew four minutes longer than any other and higher and further. it took off here in the western part of the country. landed in the sea between north korea and japan. not far off the coast of russia. you can see russia to the north there, 60 miles. the white house released a statement saying with the missile so close to russia's soil, the president cannot imagine that russia is pleased. greg palkot live with more. greg? >> shep, one of our most trusted experts on north korea told us a short time ago that this is the most significant missile launch to come out of north korea yet. let's further break down what he means. it stayed aloft over this weekend some 30 minutes. the longest ever any kind of

projectile like that has stayed up there. in add the ex-to going 500 miles down range, went up 1,300 miles high. if it went on a strategic trajectory of 2,500 miles. that could hit the base on the island of guam and then some. the north korean leader said was to be ecstatic. kim jong-un monitoring the proceedings and that the missile could carry a heavy nuclear program. no confirmation of that. but shep, experts tell me they're close to that. the biggest news to come out of this launch is this kind of missile is a precursor to an intercontinental ballistic missile.
12:37 pm
the kinds of missiles that we saw at a military parade last month very similar to that. we saw athem. the white house very strong again over the weekend about this. they call it a flagrant menace and we heard from sean spicer for the white house a short while ago calling on all countries to gang up on north korea. take a listen. >> i think there's no question that north korea continues to threaten the united states and our allies and its neighbors and china and russia. we are calling on all of those folks in the region, particularly shine and russia to do everything they can in terms of sanctions to help resolve the situation and bring stability to the peninsula. >> a big threat. meeting tomorrow at the u.n. security council. >> shepard: thanks, greg. and president of the plow shares fund working to reduce and eliminate the dangers posed by nuclear weapons and the author
12:38 pm
of "nuclear nightmares." joe, nice to see you. >> pleasure, shep. >> shepard: where are we in the long arm of troubles with north korea? >> in is a major step forward to north korea. the most dangerous test they have done yet. >> shepard: why? >> demonstrating new capabilities. it didn't travel very far but that's because it took a lofted trajectory. went straight up and came straight down. it traveled about 500 miles, the distance from maine to washington d.c., if you flatten that out. you get to it 2,500 miles and the width of the united states and could travel that in about 30 minutes. what is significant about this, why it took the trajectory. they retested a re-entry vehicle. we've talked about this before. one of the obstacles is not only getting something in space but bring it back down and survive the heat.
12:39 pm
this test mimicked what it would be like in icbm range, the heat and stress of reentry and they apparently had a successful test of their reentry vehicle technology. finally, a stepping stone on the way to that longer missile. very similar to the way the chinese developed their long range missile. they had a missile like this called the dx 3. went about this long. a few years later, they followed by the 4 and used that as the first stage of their intercontinental ballistic missile. that is what we think north korea is up to. >> shepard: we need dees calatin here. are the chinese a partner in that? >> they're definitely a partner. they won't take care of the problem for us. they will put on more sanctions and more pressure. they and russia, as putin affirmed today, don't want to
12:40 pm
see a nuclear armed north korea continuing to test like this, but they're not going to put sanctions on to cause the north korean regime to collapse. that is sending millions of refugees into china destabilizing it, creating chaos. they want the united states to meet with north korea to negotiate some agreement. that is the compromise. pressure plus engagement could stop the program. >> thanks, joe. >> shepard: thanks. and sean spicer said that assad's regime is murdering thousands and burning bodies to cover it up apparently with support from russia and iran. they released the pictures of the prison with the crematorium.
12:41 pm
officials say syrians are hanging as many as 50 people a day there. this is about a 45 minute drive from damascus. the state department is appalled by the atrocities like this. after last month's gas attacks that killed dozens, the air force bombed a syrian air base. rich edson is at the state don't. rich? >> the administration points to three photos taken over a four-year period. the state department showed that they demonstrate what they say is a crematorium of buildings on the western edge of the complex. the u.s. claims the photos show a probable air intake, fire wall and discharge stack. one final photo shows melting snow on the roof of this building likely, according to the administration, from the heat of a crematorium burning victims. u.s. officials say they cannot rule out the heat is from another source and cannot say for certain that it's a
