8:01 am

8:02 am
minutes. second time that he has met with the cabinet. the first time he has met with the full cabinet. the last time he met was back in march. there was still up for members missing. the president making an attempt monday morning to get the agenda back on track, declaring this workplace environment week. you saw ivanka talk about that a moment ago. and he was tweeting last night, great numbers on the economy. all of our work, including the passage of many bills and regulation through executive orders now kicking in. last week, which was an infant with, was overshadowed by james comey's testimony. first to come ivanka trump, who is a big part in this week's policy proposal, said that she thought the testimony turned out well for her father. here listen now. >> he felt very vindicated. with all the statements that were making. he feels incredibly optimistic. but you know, at the white hous white house, and trust administration, we were incredibly focused on the reason we all went to washington.
8:03 am
what we are fighting for. >> he did mention a second ago that the mayor of walks out with, was constant, but that is threatened like last week, it could be overshadowed by jeff sessions appearance before the senate judicial committee tomorrow. they could be a lot of questions about russia and the two meetings that sessions had with the russian abbasid or while he was a center for the of alabama. not clear yet whether that testimony as can be an private or it will be public, but earlier, the present senior counselors talk about sessions upcoming testimony and another big issue she sees looming. >> if he is willing to share what he knows -- i really, yesterday was senator ryan feinstein, a democrat, saying that they would like to investigate further the fact that james comey exceeded the wishes of lynch about was a full-blown investigation to
8:04 am
matter. taking something from an investigation and saying that it matters, is no small thing. >> jon: de mexico former fbi director, james comey, said the attorney general at the time came to him and said, the hillary clinton email investigation, call it a matter. one thing that dianne feinstein says needs to take a closer look at. they can raise the whole temperature with all this, jon scott. >> jon: talk about the frustration level of the white house. they're trying to focus the nation on things like the economy and jobs. i say, those are part of his trip to waukesha. other things people talk about is just james comey in russia. >> it's frustrating for the president, but he has to admit some of this is his own making. he does to some degree continue to perpetuate it.
8:05 am
tweeting about james comey. saying that his leaks are of great concern. the communications director has at the president to treat so much. he has been in the past, because if you keep taking yourself off message, between six, you have an issue with not getting your agenda. this present is under siege like no other present before. maybe back since the early 1970s. we went and how is my cats what's doing on getting the president to reduce his tweetin tweeting? bow them in the president, he clearly got a hold of his twitter device. he started tweeting. there has been nothing significant today, so that is interesting to know as well. >> jon: that twitter machine was red-hot. john roberts in the white house. >> heather: right now, we are talking about the agenda and why
8:06 am
is it crunch time to repeal and replace obamacare. the senate may send its own bill to the congressional budget office this week. there is growing concerns that conservatives, like mike lee, could oppose it. >> we are trying. we are working hard. look at the end of the day. if we are asked to vote on something that repeals obamacare, and it does so in a way that brings down the cost of health care for the american people, dan data something i can vote for. every bring forward something that doesn't repeal obamacare, it doesn't bring on the cost of health care, that is something i cannot vote for. it is not yet clear what it will look like at the end of the day. >> heather: joining us now, paul, former senior advisor to george w. bush. think for joining us. >> you bet. things have me. >> heather: some sinners are deeply divided. how can they reach a consensus? >> it will be very difficult. 52 republicans in the house. they need to have 50 republican supports.
8:07 am
whatever measure they bring forward, plus the vice president. that gives them 51 votes they meet under reconciliation to move a measure. right from the beginning, the expectations is that they're not going to get a vote from rand paul. he's like a vote for anything. that means they can only lose one more, and it might be mike lee. the third center who is up for grabs, apparently, is ted cruz, but when you're that close to 50, a lot of people start to get weak, and you have to do a lot of hand-holding to get it acros across. >> heather: that is a good word for. how do you get those centers like the three that you mention, the over conservative ones, to get on board. do you make the build more conservative or more minor? >> here's where thing. you have to do both simultaneously. remember, your sense of moderates like alaska or of
8:08 am
maine or of west virginia or of ohio. all, who have states that expanded medicaid. the senders from those states want to have a longer runway to phase out that expansion. it's a balancing act. you have to find something that will allow conservatives to vote for, and something that will allow senators from one of the medicaid, bankrupt states, to vote for. at the end of the day, the glue that has to keep this together is a sense that they have to do something. they can simply walk away and do nothing. if they do, that will hurt everybody. conservative or moderate. >> heather: on that note, will that be reason enough, because there are reports that mitch mcconnell knows he will not have the votes, but he will have a vote anyway. why vote on a bill that you know what impasse? >> well, you don't know you are going to pass a bill until you actually get to the floor and bring it up. you don't want to bring up a bill and have it be defeating. it is such a critical measure.
8:09 am
if the republicans are gonna walk away without a vote, it would be worse than bringing it up for vote and losing it. they are damned if they do and they are damned if they don't. here's where thing, i've been talking to some people involved in the center process, and they seem to be more optimistic over the last week. this may be something that is big enough that republicans understand, we have to get a bill that is not perfect, that is better than the current situation and moves in the direction we want to go, which is the repeal of obamacare and replaced by a better system that will have consumer choice, more options, it will put the consumer first, not the government. >> heather: have you heard any specific yourself that you can share with us? >> just the general sense that there is an effort, a real effort, to get things done. it is either by the fourth of july or maybe shortly after the fourth of july that they will be in a position to vote. they would like to do before, sibley because everybody is
8:10 am
wanting to go home before. they want to not hang up before the fourth of july. >> heather: we just mentioned at the top of the hour, that is the first time that the full cabinet will be meeting. they have a lot of work to do. how are they going to do, as we were discussing, get back on track and move beyond the james comey investigation? how do you get the work done like tax reform and >> first thing, stop talking about the things you don't want to talk about. the russian investigation and so forth. you have jeff session testify. james comey, strangely and said, he was not aware of the parameters that jeff sessions' recusal. james comey's was one of the people in the fbi and i got an email from jeff sessions that he
8:11 am
was recusing himself and should not be briefed on any matter having to do with any investigation, current investigation or future investigation that involves the campaigns for president of the united states. that's pretty clear to me. don't talk to me about anything that has to do with the 2016 presidential race. either about hillary clinton or tron. he wanted to set the record straight. here's the deal. stop talking about the russian investigation. some talk about things that you don't want to and talk about things i do. when he went talk about his withdrawal from paris climate accord, but he talked about it one afternoon, and put several people on the sunday morning talk that said that prison is a talk about what you want from this administration. more than one day more than one voice to sustain attention. >> heather: control the mesh message which he did. >> he controlled it at best in the last few weeks of the
8:12 am
campaign, which was the critical moment. he made jokes about it and the "post." it was a campaign of discipline, not impose, and it was at the exact moment that he needed that discipline and focus again. >> heather: maybe he is listening to right now. karl rove's. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> jon: and as you have been talking with carl, we got word that the intelligence committing meeting, hearing i should say, tomorrow with the former senator, attorney general, jeff sessions is going to be in open session. that will please most democrats, like charles schumer, who said he wanted an open session. there was talk of keeping it behind closed doors, because of some of the matters that they would be delving into, but that will be taking place in open

8:20 am
we'll see as jeff sessions lays it out straight with his interaction with the russian investor tomorrow. >> jon: it is fascinating that james comey, when he testify laterally, that part of the reason he released his notes of the conversations with the president to the friend of his, who released it to the media, it was because he thought it would propel the appointment of a special counsel. >> that it has become the focus of the presidents focus as far as his tweets. what he talks about it. it is not leaking. it is the administration suggesting that james comey leaking that raises question about, what else would leak. that is not the last will hear about that. over the weekend, the interesting thing was lindsey graham speaking to the television to present trump. don't go oath because you can trip yourself.
8:21 am
if you don't say anything, you will be in a better position, because there is not a lot of facts here to back out the folks that are opposed to. that was lindsay graham on "face the nation." >> jon: let me read well quickly. i believe that james comey leaks will be more prevalent than anybody thought so. very illegal, very cowardly. i was late, lots of shoes to drop. thank you bret baier. see you tonight. >> heather: coming up, american soldiers coming under attack in afghanistan. why the latest, deadly assault is under investigation. we are live at the pentagon. severe weather across the country today. more would be coming later. >> speak i been through a lot of storms, but i've never seen this much help. >> apsley nothing i've ever seen. beautiful sunshine, and then

8:27 am
there was 25 a baltimore, maryland, 29 of california, and corporal, 22 of north kelowna. another u.s. soldier was injured in the attack. that attacker was immediately killed by u.s. forces. it occurred near the tunnels and eastern afghanistan, used by isis fighters. the same area at that the usa got the m.o. 8b. all have been fighting have been affiliate with isis. today, american forces are coming under attack. the taliban claimed credit for a roadside bombing. no u.s. forces were killed in that. they white house is still waiting the commanders. later today, chairman will testify before the house armed

8:29 am
administration. it's to look really bad for having called for impeachment for so long when they come out and say, there is nothing here.
8:30 am
8:31 am
8:32 am
>> jon: a former fbi director, james comey, getting some praise in the media after public testimony in front of the senate. liberals who harshly criticize his handling of the clinton investigation, now applaud the fired fbi director, who called the president, a liar.
8:33 am
kellyanne conway says that james comey vindicated mr. trump. >> let's talk about the things that we did learn yesterday. we didn't here. we heard nothing -- we heard that he is not under investigation. all the media who said he was, in that james comey has yet to apologize over attacks. there is no evidence of obstruction of justice or collusion. >> jon: was presented to our media planner. julia dimmick judy miller and bill mcgregor. both of them fox news contributes. so howard kurtz publish that james comey has gone from hero to zero more times that humanly possible. everybody on capitol hill, who was criticizing him, loves the guy. >> they love him because of what he has to say.
8:34 am
that is that the president is a liar, in "the new york times," they had one criticism that they got a story wrong that happened to talk about the alleged collusion between mr. trump, his aides, and russia. that was wrong. nobody came out that he was a boy scout. "the new york times" called him shakespearean. how short memories are. this is a guy, whom hillary clinton blames for losing her the election. >> jon: and he made some choices, decisions, in the hilary matter that everybody has palms. >> absolutely right. i think james comey is very aware of that. look, hillary clinton email investigation. he earned the wrath of the establishment. this is his redemption. he is anti-trump. it's also interesting, the narrative change. he met with the president, and
8:35 am
if he felt he was being pressured, dan did he have could go down. i would like to hear from the other fbi people that he shared that with, because it seems to me that it is a post firing interpretation that he said. >> jon: there is a lot of fbi agents, who were outraged that he chose -- that he essentially cleared hillary clinton of all possible charges, but saying that no prosecutor would charge her. >> he couldn't have known that. and also, while saying that she has no legal liability, he also proceeded to indict her in the public's mind by calling her increasingly careless with the handling of classified information. once again, he wanted it to have always, and he went way beyond, in my view, what prosecutors that she is not a prosecutor. he is the head of the fbi.
8:36 am
he was supposed to present the facts, and he did not do that. let's see what happens tomorrow. >> jon: what about the leaking of his own notes. >> i think this is outrageous what's considered a war product on an fbi computer can find its way to the press but not to the elected representatives of the people. congress doesn't see this. it's just outrageous. it's a very pernicious idea with james comey's. there's a civil service to have it keep an eye on the elected figure, when we elect people in a democracy to keep an eye on the permanent government. it's incredible. spill it and you have worked a washington. the idea that you release that he knew that it was can a bring on the special counsel. >> if it was the right thing the to do, why did he have to go to
8:37 am
a columbia professor? >> and on duty's point, he took the attorney general's role in saying that no prosecutor would prosecute. then he is in the room at donald trump, and now he says basically, this is abstraction. he did know. somehow, he didn't know what he was hearing? as judy says, he wants to have it always. you probably will. >> i know bill and i often times don't agree, but on this will be due. he is so slick. he is so smooth. he knows how to leak something in a way that his fingerprints aren't on it. now we has, might love that, but -- >> jon: he admits to it! >> that was interesting. i'm just a good old boy. i'm really trying to do the right thing here. look, i have seen right away prosecutors before. i know what happens when people like james comey and they have power with no checks and balances. i'm going to reserve judgment on
8:38 am
mr. james comey. >> fascinating times ahead. i am less generous. i will judge. bill mcgurk, judy miller. thank you. >> heather: happening right now. widespread and tech corruption in and moscow. announcing a national holiday. as a prominent opposite dimmick opposition leader while tens of thousands of people take to the streets. the last thing that the kremlin wants to see. amy kellogg is live with more and destroy. >> high heather. russians themselves will say they are patient people, and the government is famously tough on the opposition. by may poon has been in power now, header, for 17 years. the question always is. dude russians really want change? what will it take for them to really call for change? when will they do that? these protests today are the
8:39 am
second series of big protests in less than six months' time. that is significant, because this comes after a five-year period of quiet. as you mentioned, the authorities were very quick to arrest that protest leader, alexei navalny. he was seen in this chopper or drone shot taken in a blue shirt from his home as he was on his way to the protests in moscow. hundreds of people have also been arrested. alexei navalny was also arrested for by lay public order. the government has given him a permit to protest in one location, but all vendors he said refused to put up a stage or sound system there. he instructed his followers overnight to come out in march on the main shopping street in moscow. it goes right to red square. many of the protests were young.
8:40 am
many of them chanted saint such as, putin, sees. moscow and in st. peterborough. today is russia day, national holiday, so protesters are waving russian flags, drinking their anticorruption chance, basically, heather, to say, we love mother russia. we hate corruption. now alexei navalny will be in jail again for 15 days. he really wants to run for president next year. it's unlikely that that will happen. he has suspended sentence on him for fraud. he claims that is trumped up. again, this will all be developed in the course of the next few weeks. how do? >> amy kellogg life for us. thank you amy. >> jon: we are going to take you to the white house, where the president has a meeting with his full cabinet for the first time. let's listen in. >> this is the first cabinet meeting with the entire cabinet
8:41 am
in the present. the acclamation process has been record-setting long. i mean record-setting long. with some of the finest people in our country and delayed and delayed and delayed. but that is much over. now, we are going to go through the regular process of people with other levels and government, and that is a very long process also. it includes ethics committees, which has become a very to deal with. all that being said, we now have our cabinet approved. i know when a welcome secretary of agriculture, purdue. secretary of labor, alex. national director of intelligence. u.s. trade representative, robert. is this a very incredible, talented group.
8:42 am
generals, entrepreneurs, business leaders, and many others. i choose each person at this table and i chose them not only because of their remarkable experience and success, but because they all united under what they want to do. very simple, but beautiful goal. serving and defending our beloved nation. together, we are working every day and working very hard for our country to protect the safety. bringing back jobs and putting always, america first. when i ran, make america great again, and this is what we're doing. we are doing it at a much faster pace than anybody thought. i would say never has there been a president with few exceptions, fdr. he had a major depression.
8:43 am
whose passport legislation, have done more things between executive orders in the job killing regulations that have been terminated. many bills, 34 bills that congress signed, supreme court justice that it's going to be a great one. he can be a great supreme court justice, and many things that we've achieved tremendous success, and we have been about as active as you can possibly b be. at about record-setting pace. and we are achieving these goals by eliminating these job killing regulations. unlocking america energy, rebuilding our military, pursuing fair and reciprocal trade deals, achieving massive reductions in illegal immigration. transforming veteran affairs, build a new partnership among countries and nations to defeat terrorism, that you have to do. this is a great. we are doing and seen amazing
8:44 am
results. in fact, there's been a major surges in the newspaper and the miners are going back to work. a pretty big story. can you believe it? surprise. is kicking in very fast. more small businesses are planning to hire then and any point in over a decade, and last month, on employment fell and it lowest point in 16 years. i recently returned from a trip overseas that included deals for more than $350 billion worth of military and economic investment in the united states. these deals will bring many thousands of jobs to our countr country. in fact, it will bring millions of jobs ultimately and help saudi arabia take a greater role instability in that region. one of the big things that we didn't, and you are seeing it now and qatar come in all things that are happening in a positive fashion, we are stopping
8:45 am
terrorism. they will stop the funding of terrorism. that's not an easy fight, but that is a fight we will win. we are just going to starve the bases. believe me. the secretary has been working to repeal and replace obamacare. the house passed a bill. the senate has it right now. mitch mcconnell is working very, very hard, as are the republican senators. we will have zero backing from the democrats, even though they should get in and do something, but we expect to get zero. if we have the greatest bill in the history of the world on health care, we would not get one vote from the democrats, because they are obstructionist. that's what they want to do. that's their best political gai gain. so far, we've had two races, and we won both races. dave spent billions and billions of dollars. we have another one coming up,
8:46 am
and we have do been doing very well. they are obstructionist, and that is sad. we are coming up with something that i believe will be very good with zero support from the obstructionist democrats. sad. second termination is hoping to put together the biggest single tax cut in american history, and that will also be a big part of tax reform. director mulvaney is going to introduce a new budget, that cuts waits for washington's spending protects the taxpayer. that will help the people that need taking care of. that is a first step, but we will be taking care of the people that have to be taken care of. on a human basis that is very, hear fromtant. secretary rex tillotson and
8:47 am
james madison how we are combating isis. we've had tremendous success against isis and the middle east. we are doing very, very well. we're going to be having a news conference, and you will see numbers that you would not have believed. frankly, if you look at two even six months ago, you would not believe it is possible. secretary will talk water veterans. we've also been strongly pushing for the d.a. cap debility act to ensure the va will be accountable if they fail our great veterans. it's passed the senate, and the house is voting tomorrow. tomorrow, we have a big out coming, and i think will be in good shape.
8:48 am
that is something that is going to be great for our veterans. we are also going to hear from secretary costa that will happen today, expanding apprenticeships and getting people back to work. we had the lowest number in terms of unemployment and many, many years. at the same time, i always argued with that number, because it doesn't take into account millions of millions of people that have given up looking for jobs. we are going to be doing something about that, and we are going to get the people back to work. you see that in ohio, and it has started in pennsylvania, north carolina, south carolina, florida. you see the numbers. i called them the forgetting men and women, but they will not be forgotten. believe me. there are many jobs that do not require a four-year degree. the and the massive debt that also often comes with those
8:49 am
degrees and even two years degrees. these jobs require advanced skills and technical skills. apprenticeships are very good from a trump standpoint. apprenticeships. there can be a big factor in our country. people with tremendous talent, maybe up mechanical talent, fixing an engine or a motor, that a lot of people that graduated high in the class at the best colleges in the world have no clue or would never be good at. it's a different kind of ability, but is a great ability nonetheless. we can help get our young people protected in the technical training they need to pursue really exciting careers and careers that they can make good money. they can really earn a great, great salary and help in small businesses. if everybody in this room continues to do their jobs, then we can restore american prosperity and make millions of
8:50 am
