rob: beautiful day. i'm rob schmit. straight to fox news alert. totally vindicated as james comey prepares to testify. ellison barber is live with the details. >> we are hours away from former fbi director james comey's testimony before congress and we already have a pretty good idea of what he's going to say because the senate intelligence committee released his prepared opening statement yesterday and in those prepared statements comey says that he did tell president trump he was not under investigation. he also claims president trump asked for a so-called loyalty pledge and suggested fbi drop investigation into former national security adviser michael flynn, the latter happened three months ago in oval office. quote, we were alone, the
2:01 am
president began by saying, i want to talk about michael flynn, i hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting flynn go, he is a good guy, i hope you can get this go. he felt the president was requesting the fbi drop the flynn investigation but not the broader investigation into russia. trump previously denied the flynn accusations. >> did you ask him to drop the investigation? >> no, never. >> and some republicans say that the president did not cross the line. i think we have some sound from senator james lankford here. >> i think it's right for a president to be expect him to be honest and that's the best way to handle it. what i didn't see is pressure by anyone else and didn't articulate anyone else pressuring him. >> some democrats disagree and a few republicans are saying that they feel president trump went
2:02 am
up to the line with comey but did not cross it and democrats are disagreeing in a statement. the fact that is this request was made after the president excused everyone else from the room strongly indicate that is the president was more than aware of the illegitimacy of such demand. so far trump is not commenting on prepared remarks and personal attorney is. the president is please that had mr. comey has finally confirmed his private report that is the president was not under investigation in any russian probe. the president feels completely and totally vindicated. comey's public testimony is expected to begin at 10:00 a.m., afterwards there will be a private briefings, four members of the intelligence committee and with a congressional hearing like this it could lead to something like impeachment and also to absolutely nothing. rob: ellison, thanks so much. >> thank you.
2:03 am
rob: corey lewandowski there's no hidden agenda in firing james comey. >> what the president was asking for was loyalty to the country and make sure they have the justice system that they want. that's not unheard of and uncalled for. what the president called for was a president elect to develop aura poor with the fbi director. if you read the statement was in his entire tenure. he had two conversations with barack obama, one was to simply say good-bye and in the time that president trump taken office and the time he was president elect till the time jim comey was fired for not performing his job well, he had nine separate conversations with the president in multiple meetings, the difference this president wants to make sure to

[laughter] >> the left desperately tries to make the case for impeachment, the federalist molly says the watergate comparisons don't actually hold any water. >> whenever anyone makes comparison to watergate in this town it's a desperate plea and at this point highly placed

intelligence officials leaking to the press but we don't have anyone who has come forward with a crime yet and we are still wait to go hear what the crime is in which trump people might be implicated and far past time for intelligence officials who have been playing the game to give us substance on which to hang it or put up or shut up. rob: america's top intelligence chiefs grilled on capitol hill in the lead-up today saying that they never felt pressured to cover up the fbi-russia investigation. >> why are you not answering these questions, is there and indication by the president of the united states of executive privilege, is there or not? >> not that i'm aware of. >> why are you not answering the questions, is it an indication of executive privilege, if there is, let's know about it, if there isn't, answer the questions. >> i standby the comments i made. i don't mean that in a -- in a
2:06 am
contentious way. >> i do mean it in a contentious way. i don't understand why you're not answering the questions. what's the basis for refusal to not answer questions? >> the basis is what i previously explained. i do not believe it is appropriate for me to -- >> what's the basis, i'm not satisfied with what i do not believe it is appropriate or i should not answer, i understand the legal basis, you swore the oath to tell us the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and today you are refusing to do so, what is the legal basis for refusal for you to testify in the committee? >> i'm not sure i have a legal basis. rob: testifying before the nsa committee, they never felt corner to dial back the russia probe but they refuse today reveal private conversations with the president.
2:07 am

2:08 am
the president raised the issue of repealing and replacing obamacare visiting with families of what he called victims of the catastrophe noting that the major insurer anthem pulled out leaving in ohioans particularly without coverage and pressed republicans to put bill very soon. >> you would have no democratic vote. it's all going to be republicans or bust and the republicans are working very, very hard on getting a great health care plan. so now it's the senate's turn to add. >> democrats may not be the only problem standing in the way on infrastructure and health care as that much anticipated testimony of the former fbi director he fire today take place in just a few hours, guy. rob: we will have more on obamacare in just a few minutes.

2:15 am
slowly diminished and it was a great and empowering feeling. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. i don't even think about cigarettes anymore. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. many insurance plans cover chantix for a low or $0 copay.

>> good morning and welcome back, live look in london where the polls are open and voting is underway for the british general election. rob: that's right, prime minister theresa may fighting a closer battle than expected in a decision that'll shape the future of u.s. relations with the uk. >> that's right, foreign affairs correspondence is live in london, good morning, benjamin. >> good morning, rob and julian. this election was called because the conservatives were sure they would win by a mile but a few things have happened which means the chance of far-left government is far greater than ever before. theresa may inherited power after following the brexit vote and she wants her own political capital moving ahead of negotiations, but she has recently been accused of political u-turns of failing to inspire the people and such have been called right-wing hillary clinton. front runner against her is left-leaning jeremy corbyn. he's been called the bernie sanders of the uk.
2:17 am
he is said that he would never press the nuclear weapon. he wants to national rail and water sectors and dramatically raise taxes and increase benefits. his own party held a vote of no confidence against him but in a matter of weeks he has been closing the gap. recent attacks in london manchester has taken center stage here twice suspending campaigning. corbyn has blamed uk policy and supports dialogue with the terrorists like ira and hamas. this is being counted as victory for democracy over terrorism. but under corbyn british policy could do a 180. corbyn has spoken out on u.s. policies. while polls indicate that theresa may will win this, we have seen them be wrong in the past with brexit and trump and for today at least this country is holding its breath. thank you, guys.
2:18 am
rob: you said he supports dialogue with isis; is that right, benjamin? >> he hasn't said isis but in the past he talked about dialogue with ira and hamas. rob: that's a very interesting take on that. thank you so much. 18 minutes after the hour, president trump bringing a message of hope to middle america. >> it's time finally to put america first and that's what i've been doing if you haven't noticed. >> what do the viewers think? the brand new dial just in. that's where i felt relief. we're the rivera family, and we will be with usaa for life. what's the story behind green mountain coffee and fair trade? let's take a flight to colombia. this is boris calvo. boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price,

2:22 am
message of hope to the heartland counting big plans for infrastructure and health care during a stop in cincinnati. so how did it resinate with voters? pollster lee carter is here to be putting the president to the dial test, if you will. we have a couple of different topics that we want to get to and let's start off by hearing what president trump had to say yesterday in regards to obamacare being dead. >> obamacare is in a total death spiral and the problems will only get worse if congress fails to act. obamacare is dead. i've been saying it for a long time. everybody knows it. everybody that wants to report fairly about it knows. the house of representatives has done its job. it sent a plan to the senate and the senate is working it over, we spent a lot of time yesterday with mitch mcconnell, a lot of
2:23 am
the great senators that happen to be republicans because we are having no help, it's only obstruction from the democrats. the democrats are destroying health care in this country. >> all right, lee, what type of grade do you give. lee: you can see the republicans like the message, independents and democrats an f. the most fascinating thing to watch throughout the whole process is independents and on obamacare it's also the polling show that is support of obamacare has increased almost 20 points since president trump took office. >> why do you think that is? >> in large part it's because there is no message on what health care is going to do, what republicans are going to do for the american people, there's only message of what's going to be taken away. the democrats have done a very good job of saying 24 million people are going to be losing care and they have messaging. we saw in the election cycle. hillary had the antitrump message and didn't garner support. they are not doing that for health care, they need to if
2:24 am
they want to win debate. >> he hasn't suede when it comes to obamacare? >> it's a failure but what are the republicans going to deliver. >> let's go to the next topic, time to rebuild our country, a message we heard a lot about lately as well, putting america first, take a thereon what president trump had to say. >> we spend trillions and trillions of dollars outside of our nation but we can't build a road, a highway, a tunnel, a bridge in our own nation and we watch everything falling into disrepair. it's time to rebuild our country to bring back our jobs to restore our dreams and, yes, it's time finally to put america first and that's what i've been doing if you haven't noticed. [applause] >> you grade this one a little closer. lee: a lot closer, independent much more in line and democrats even gave this a c.
2:25 am
this is president trump that people elected. they want to hear about america first, we are going to make things great again and bring back jobs. when he focus on this, it resinates with the american voter and resinates with americans and this is where he shines. >> the next one is a big topic because of everything that's been going on in the country, the last few weeks specially, the funding of terrorism and the fact that he says it's going to stop, take a listen. >> i want to thank the king of saudi arabia, king salman, we spent a lot of time together and they are doing a great job, they are going to be something very special, you see it with terrorism, the funding of terrorism, it's going to stop, it's going to stop the funding of radical islamic terrorism and they are going to stop. [applause] lee lie you can see obviously better than he did with health care but still this is a message plus, president trump shines, independents a b my news and
2:26 am
even democrats gave it a c minus. people feel more secure and another area where he shines and when he focuses on jobs, economy, putting america first is when he wins them over. >> thank you very much for joining us, rob. rob: all right, thanks, guys. 26 minutes after the hour in the hot seat james comey releasing prepared testimony ahead of today's highly anticipated hearing. >> comey has now told us all that the president is not under investigation. all in all it's a pretty day for president trump. >> senator lindsey graham why he says today will be a good day per the president. also christopher ray picked to be the new head of the fbi, who is he? is he the right man for the job. stay tune.

2:29 am
2:30 am
beautiful morning. sun about to come up at 5:30 on the east coast as we look into downtown of lower manhattan, a beautiful morning. a fox news alert, president trump feeling totally vindicated as ousted fbi director james comey prepares to testify on capitol hill today. >> former fbi director releasing prepared statement before blockbuster senate hearing. rob: good morning, you're watching "fox & friends first". i'm rob schmit. >> and i'm julie. >> we are hours away from comey testifying for the first time since he was fired by president trump last month.
2:31 am
here is a little bit of what we expect him to talk about. comey did tell president trump that he was not under investigation and also claimed that president trump asked a so-called loyalty pledge and suggested fbi drop investigation into former national adviser michael flynn. quote, we were alone, the president began by saying, i want to tuck about mike flynn, he then said, i hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting flynn go. he is a good guy, i hope you can let this go. he thought the president was requesting that the president drop the flynn investigation and not the broader investigation into russia. trump previously denied the flynn accusation on nbc news.
2:32 am
>> did you ask him to drop the investigation? >> no. never. >> some republicans say the president did not cross the line even if he walked up to it. >> i think it's right for a president to expect him to be honest and i would say that's the best way to handle it, what i didn't see him being pressured by anyone else and didn't articulate anyone else pressuring him. >> democrats disagree in a statement, quote, the fact that this request was made after the president excused everyone from the room strongly indicate that is the president was more than aware of the illegitimacy of such demand. so far president trump is not commenting on comey's prepared remarks but personal attorney is in a statement he said, quote, the president is please that had mr. comey has finally publicly confirmed his private reports that the president was not under investigation in any russian probe and the president feels
2:33 am
completely and totally vindicated. comey's testimony is expected to begin at 10:00 a.m. after words a close session you he will talk to senators as well. a congressional hearing can sometimes lead to impeachment but sometimes can lead to absolutely nothing. back to you. >> thank you very much. and that brings us to look who is talks and this morning south carolina senator is slamming the academy station that is president trump obstructed justice. rob: he says it's clear that there's no case otherwise comey wouldn't be testifying. >> i think the president is frustrated because he knows he didn't do anything. what comey and mueller concluded i don't have an obstruction justice of case, what prosecutor in their right mind would allow their star witness to go out before the senate panel of 20 senators and get beat up if he really believed he had a case because they allowed comey to testify in public. comey has now told us all that the president is not under investigation as an individual
2:34 am
for colluding with russia, that president trump is not a target or subject to a criminal investigation or counterintelligence investigation regarding colluding with the russians. all in all, it's a pretty good day for president trump. >> president trump nominating christopher wray to become the next fbi director. so who is he and is he the right man for the job? rob: here with firsthand inside, former assistant attorney general alis fisher. alis, thanks so much for coming on this morning. >> good morning. rob: you were also in the job for that running. >> that was an honor. rob: tell us about chris wray. >> he's got the right experience, he's a brilliant lawyer and cares deeply about the institution and let me just say the men and women of the fbi, they are amazing, they are out there protecting us every
2:35 am
day doing a great job, chris will be a great leader for them. >> he's low key and able to remain independent and you know him on a personal level, how would you describe him? >> absolutely, highest integrity. smart, focused, he works so hard. in the days that the justice department after 9/11 when we were working on national security together, for those many weeks and months he worked all of the time. he was focused on the mission, commit today getting it right and doing the right thing upholding justice in national security and all sorts of things. rob: sounds like he's been on both sides of criminal law. he prosecuted enron but also defended chris christie, he's dealt with white-collar things and it's going to be interesting to move into this position if he
2:36 am
is confirmed in this environment, but, you know, would it be strange, you were up for this job, would you be a bit mortified coming into this position with all of the hoopla. >> trying to do everything they can in law enforcement for the country and that's what i think people should focus on. the great work that they do and chris is going to come in at this time or any other time and he's going to be committed an focused on the job and he has the right experience to do it well. >> alice, what do you make of the timing of this announcement? >> i think the timing is great because they absolutely need a leader and let's chris confirmed and get him in that job. rob: do you think this is going to be a tough confirmation
2:37 am
process? he needs 51, right? >> chris was confirmed before by the senate when he led the criminal division. i don't think that there's any issues and i'm very hopeful that the senate will confirm him promptly so the fbi can get on with their business. >> one more question, why is he the right man for the job? >> right experience, the right demeanor, committed, loyal to uphelding justice, i think he's a perfect leader for the fbi right now. rob: all right. alice fisher thank you for coming on this morning. >> thank you. rob: 37 minutes after the hour. president trump meeting with obamacare victims in ohio where another insurer has just pulled out of the exchange there. >> the problems will only get worse if congress fails to act. the democrats are destroying health care in this country. rob: so what will it take to bring relief to american families and fix this mess brian

2:42 am
and business in finance at the king's college in new york city brian brendberg. u thank you for coming in this morning. >> good to be here. rob: if you ask the republicans this is a crappy system that was never going to work anyway and if you ask democrats, the republicans are trying to sabotage it. they want you to be confused. >> republicans are saying the system broken, the economist don't work and they're right and democrats even said that. democrats have said the system doesn't quite work the way it was supposed to. we need to fix it. that is true. democrats are also saying republicans aren't going to any great lengths to try to rescue it. look, we should be providing payments to insurers that help low-income individuals pay for insurance policies. >> the republicans are saying we are not going to do that the way obamacare prescribes, the payments shouldn't be automatic. congress is saying it's illegal to make those payments the way we are doing it right now.
2:43 am
that's the dispute. rob: obamacare is far too expensive, that's why everybody can't afford it anymore but the government wants to subsidize, the democrats want to subsidize and republicans are saying, no, we are not going to do that. >> we are not doing that right now and that's what democrats are complaining of. that's where you see the rub going on. rob: if you look at this, this is not really a conservative idea at all the socialization of health care, how conservatives and republicans are going to fix the problem, they've already admitted we are going to have it, i guess. >> the house passed health care bill. it's with the senate. problem right now is republicans can't agree and president trump was out of the trail just the other day in ohio saying, look, we need to do something about this and he's right to be pointing to republicans and saying, with e no need to solve the problem, we knew that democrats weren't going to help us solve the problem and voters knew that democrats weren't going to help us solve the problem. we need to come together and
2:44 am
solve this. republicans are having trouble doing this and that's why -- lee carter was on a minute ago saying obamacare is looking more po that is because voters don't believe republicans actually have a plan they can put in place. rob: if you're a traditional fiscal conservative the war was lost the moment they allowed the health care system to begin, whatever you call it, obamacare, whatever you want to call the new one, trumpcare, it's not a conservative thing. >> a lot of heavy-lifting that has to go on. what republicans are trying to do is move it in the other direction. they just can't agree on how to do that and what pace to do that at but if they don't get it done, voters are going the pin the failures of obamacare on them and if democrats come back in power, it's not going to move to a free market system. it's going to move more in the direction of government control, single-payer public option insurance and there's no status quo here.
2:45 am
what's important is there's no status quo. obamacare can't stay the way it is. the question is will republicans fix it in time or will democrats have a chance to move it more in a government direction. rob: you are the moderates and far right, everybody trying to cover their puts in 2018. nobody wants to claim they made the right move. >> the president is saying you have to figure this out because you'll be paying in 2018. rob:jillian, we will send it to you. >> remember lawmaker going on a three-day strike. guess what, she was put in handcuffs. james comey will be testifying hours from now as you can imagine social media already exploding, don't miss carley shimkus, she's coming up next
