3:01 am
presidential. he is a dangerous, unprincipled, divisive, and shameful racist. >> been talking about reaping the rewards of the big tax cut bill because february 1st was going to be the big date when you are also going to have more money in your paycheck. ♪ ♪ who says you can't go home ♪ there's only one place ♪ to call it one of their own. steve: look, we're home after a couple days on the roof at 101 constitution where it was really cold. welcome to us back home. we are chapsd. chapped. brian: think about our workers who work outdoors every day. i sat with too many thermals on that squeezed me too
3:02 am
much. i instead of going thermal i went insular which is beyond armor it squeezes you tight. ainsley: you wore a onesie. steve: you wore a girdle. brian: wearing the tight version of underarmor almost the first version from 1982. together i think i actually got warm ban hour ago. ainsley: some people call them spanx. brian: i do the no wear spanx. steve: i took two pairs of shoes yesterday. every 20 minutes i could put the shoes next to the big furnace we had up in the tent. here is the problem 7:45 yesterday i picked up the shoes. they had melted. whatever keeps the sole to the shoe melted. brian: that's why we should have a shoe maker on staff or a black smith. ainsley: grateful to our staff. we sat there for three hours. they had to be there for hours before to set all of
3:03 am
that up and hours after. brian: unlike our staff, we had to be sober. [laughter] steve: will we see that fisa memo later today? there is a possibility there is a reuters story out. apparently they talked to somebody at the white house. the memo released regarding fisa abuses at the department of justice and the fbi could be released today. although it sounds like the white house chief council and the national security also are reviewing -- i bet we don't see it until monday. ainsley: the house voted on monday night. and then the president has five days. so that means saturday night or is it five working days, which would be monday. i would think -- i was thinking with this last night he might not release it until monday so the sunday shows can focus on his speech. brian: still focus on the memo though that would be great. the speech was already off almost off the headline us the fbi's push back on devin nunes' memo.
3:04 am
devin nunes chairman of oversight. he sees this material he thinks should go public. he can't believe it next thing you know he is under a ethics investigation. the oversight intelligence committee asked the fbi can you give me some of this information in the fbi ignores, ignores, ignores. took a subpoena to get this information to come forward in front of the intelligence committee which, to me, is inexcusable. when it does come forward devin nunes says you know what? i'm going to write up a summary. i'm going to give it to the president to let the people know what went into the investigation of the trump organization leading up to the election and afterwards. at which time the memo arrives at the white house. where the fbi director on sunday takes a look at it on monday, we didn't think he had a problem with it. yesterday, five fbi agents show up. they look at it and they shed hey, chief kelly, we have got a problem with this. he goes what's your problem he? makes some changes. they make some grammatical changes defensive nunes. makes some changes.
3:05 am
thinks it's for the better. the fbi still not happy. guess who else isn't happy. adam schiff. he said you changed the memo that i okayed. steve: right. is he suggesting, look, he has done all he can adam schiff, to keep it from coming out. nonetheless, the fbi and the department of justice are hitting the panic button because they don't want it out. here is what the department of justice released. they said with regard to the house intelligence committee's memorandum, the fbi was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it was that on sunday. that's when chris wray went over to the capitol. as expressed during our initial review we gave grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the accuracy. five guys went over. they looked at it next thing you know they have got some suggestions. they made it and adam schiff is saying oh, they changed everything. they actually made some changes the democrats asked for. ainsley: nunes is saying the fbi doesn't want this
3:06 am
released because it shows the abuse of power in this agency. he also said. this having stonewalled congress' demands for information for nearly a year it's no surprise to see the fbi and doj issue spurious objections abuses at these eggs. not surprised stonewalled everything for a year. brian: is the fbi concerned about the relationship of intelligence as it relates to the intelligence committee and methods and practices or are they worried it's going to make them look terrible and individuals in particular look awful. and is that what they are here to stop? when devin nunes says yeah, i think it's the latter why else would they be stopping us as the intelligence committee for getting this information for months. why did i have to go through the courts to get this information to begin with. steve: they did make some changes. there are some on the left that said okay, we didn't vote for that version. of course they all voted against it anyway. you are going to have to a revote. if they do have a revote,
3:07 am
50/50 chance right now on what would be released to the public, the earliest they could have it is on monday. remember, half of congress is out in west virginia. ainsley: that's right. brian: democrats continue to have a melt down about the president's first state of the union address. you saw their faces. you saw the grim looks. you saw they didn't stand up when the parents of a family who lost their child to ms-13 was given recognition for the courage to come forward and the need to push back on this international gang operation. but, again, it's a little confusing. we thought joe kennedy gave their official response to the state of the union as tradition. but it turns out a lot of people gave a response to the state of the union. unlike tradition. ainsley: nancy pelosi said it was insulting to call it chain migration. she prefers family reunification. maxine waters is using the race card. she says the president is a racist. she is the one who kept calling for impeachment. listen to this. this is from last night. >> one speech cannot and does not make donald trump presidential. he's not presidential.
3:08 am
and he never will be presidential. he claims that he is bringing people together, but make no mistake, he is a dangerous, unprincipled, divisive and shameful racist. trump often works to convince diseaferred elements in our society that all of their problems are caused by people of color. steve: so there have you got maxine waters issuing her rebuttal on bet. regarding the actual state of the union i think 45 million watched it on all the television channels. i think barack obama's final one was seen by about 15 million less than that. but, keep in mind, the longer you are in office, the more the fewer people watch. the number one cable outfit was fox news channel. it was also the number one outfit that americans turned to. we had over 11 million. it is the highest rating in cable history when it comes to the state of the unions and we have to thank you for tuning us on.
3:09 am
brian: 21 million interactions across facebook, instagram and twitter. 41% occurred on facebook. 7% on instagram. 52% of the president's favorite vehicle and that is twitter. steve: it was the most tweeted state of the union ever. ainsley: the reason we tell you this is because it's obvious that many people arranged the country, millions of people around the country want to hear what this president has to say. many people are on board with him, despite what you might hear from maxine waters or from nancy pelosi. not everyone agrees with him but he does have a lot of support. they need to keep that in mind because they have big elections coming up in november. steve: the thing about the elections is keep in mind yesterday we had lee carter on. she tested some of the sound bites from the president. and the republicans gave him good grades. but the independents, the people who actually move elections and determine who our president would be, more closely aligned to the prick now than the democrats and that is not good for the democrats who are saying it's a slam dunk.
3:10 am
it's over. show's over. paul ryan, give us your hammer. ainsley: yesterday you had a biggest on radio. brian: and fox frank luntz apologized to the president. he was anti-trumper he listened to this speech and thought he hit it out of the park. this is the story our producer able to uncover. high school teacher talking to a bunch of 17-year-olds at one which time he noticed one of the students wearing a marine shirt. and he commented about the lack of intellect among those who serve in america's military. here is now suspended teacher with pay greg sal saisalcido. >> steve: big question what's going to happen to him out
3:11 am
in his school district. 150 people showed up demanding answers. the school board is in a pickle because currently they don't have an attorney. the main thing the school board did last night is okay, we need an attorney and we need one fast. ainsley: thethey put him on administrative leave until they can figure out what to do. brian: yesterday i played this for general kelly who had a chance to bring radio show to the white house. he heard it the first time. i read it to him because he couldn't make out some of the audio. this is the response that we can play on television. >> what is your reaction to that knowing that he is teaching a bunch of 17-year-olds? >> yeah. well i think the guy ought to go to hell. i just hope he enjoys the liberties and the lifestyle that we have fought for. brian: he got angrier and angrier. we had to dump some of his response. ainsley: he lost his own son fighting for our country. he said he has gone down to arlington and walked through
3:12 am
all the graves and said i, because of my decisions, a lot of these people are here. he takes this very seriously. as most of us do. and most of us -- all of us should. but, he is saying this guy has the freedom to teach in the classroom because of what these men and women have done. steve: the guy is a government and history teacher. what form of government and history is he teaching. ainsley: is he teaching 17-year-olds. steve: we have one of the kids from that class. victor cuevas who taped that teacher. he will be joining us 8:30 on "fox & friends." we will hear fro how he felt when the teacher went off. ainsley: that's exclusive. he hasn't talked to anyone yet. steve: 6:12 in new york city. president obama wanted shut gitmo down, president trump just made good on one of his promises is he going to keep it open. ainsley: you saw it during the state of the union. children who lost their
3:13 am
children to ms-13. msnbc doesn't think of that problem. >> speech tonight makes it sound like the biggest threat is ms-13. a gang nobody that doesn't watch fox news has ever heard of. ainsley: the mom of one of those murdered children is firing back. ♪ for the first time ♪ (whispering) with the capital one venture card, you'll earn unlimited double miles on every purchase, every day. not just airline purchases. think about all the double miles you could be earning.

brian: president trump announcing during his state of the union address to the surprise of many that he fulfilled another one of his campaign pledges. listen. >> so today i am keeping another promise, to re-examine our military detention policy and to keep open the detention facilities in guantanamo bay half the room applauded. why is keeping gitmo open keeping america safe? joining us now is dr. james mitchell who interrogated some of the worst terrorists in the world some still at gitmo. dr. mitchell, what was your reaction when you heard that?
3:18 am
>> i was pleased. i was afraid we would unlawful act of the war or civilian criminal enterprise. i don't think we should do that i think that would make us less safe. and there were two things that he said about that. keeping keeping get 340e open and treating these terror attacks outside our country unlawful acts of war. those are important policies. brian: you know the counter argument and why half the room sat because they say it's a symbol for terrorists to mobilize. have you gitmo. that's where they put us. now we have to really hate america. >> my reaction is, you know, i talked to a lot of terrorists. i doubt that anybody sitting in that room other than maybe some of the military and. so intelligence community actually has talked to a terrorist. i haven't talked to a single terrorist who told me that they were attacking us because of gitmo. they are attacking us because they find our way of life repulsive and they want to story it and their
3:19 am
religious ideology. in fact, khalid sheikh mohammed the mastermind of 9/11 says gitmo is just used as a recruiting tool. if it wasn't gitmo it would be something else. brian: wow, he told you that. >> right. brian: president bush 500 out. 58g 7 by president obama. five released by the previous administration. the question is when do we get them and how do we effectively interrogate them. is your way the right way we should be using now? >> i don't know. it's hard to say. here's my honest reaction to that i don't think enhanced interrogation is necessary for 9.5% of the people the terrorists we capture. one half of 1% that has information that could stop a catastrophic attack smiled of the united states that involves nuclear chemical or biological weapons? i think we ought to leave everything on the table.
3:20 am
and i don't think that we're doing that now. and my concern about the army field manual is that it's on the internet. it describes the techniques. it tells people how they are taught to work. it emphasizes the need to get voluntary admissions. voluntary information. and what i would ask people is, do you really want to wager the safety of your family on the bit that a terrorist whose god sent him there to kill is you willing to provide voluntarily information to stop those attacks? i don't think we should. brian: nope. thanks so much, dr. mitchell. very important things to bring up. also when we talk about immigration and the visa lottery system. a couple of those guys came to the visa lottery system. straight ahead. republican lawmakers bring into action after train slams into garbage truck. all were stunned by. this senator bill cassidy a doctor helping out.

way up to that rail crossing. the cab of that truck smashed with mr. folly along with two others were in there. one critically injured. one with minor injuries. and the ntsb working hard on this seen as they have all night. we went to the press conference last night and spoke with the spokesman earl wanier. here is what he had to say about the investigation. >> we expect which to take several days of unseen work followed by months back at headquarters. if we find anything that indicates that this was intentional, we will turn that over to the fbi. >> amtrak says, guys, far too common wrecks and crashes and railways just like this. the real remarkable story those g.o.p. congressman turned first responders when the impact happened. guys? steve: exactly right. all right. griff, thank you. ainsley: lots of good samaritans. griff, thank you. next guest among a handful of physicians on the train who rushed to the victims to

3:27 am
>> yes. i went down and i saw mike burgess and brad wenstrup trying to maintain an airway. he had facial trauma trying to keep his tongue out and again maintain airway. and i picked up his feet to try to get his blood going his feet to his heart and brain. i looked to the right and there is a body there that looked like he was dead. my wife approached and others there san attempt to revive but he was dead. i mean, that was pretty clear. then we turned our attention back to -- i never left my attention, but you kind of say he is dead, focus here. steve: congressman wenstrup is one of the guys who attended to steve scalise at that baseball practice not so many months ago. between that and this, how do you feel? this has been a heck of a year for you, republicans in congress. >> it has been. i hate to say this but all of us live as if our lives are going to be within two standard deviations of what
3:28 am
it is normally. most times it's that way out in the distance that happens to us. and i have been a doctor long enough that it's not a surprise. it's not what you expect. but all of us can point to wow, who would have thought that, but it changed a life or lost a life. that was one of these instances. brian: senator, there is a reporter on cnn, a political commentator that tweeted this out. a train carrying republican members of congress hits a truck near charlottesville or is this a met for for american politics today? what's your reaction to that? >> it is we have gotten to the point in our society where you can't even be civil and understand there is a tragedy and a potentially worse tragedy and feel for that as part of the human condition, something has died. and hopefully can be reawakened. but whoever tim kaine sent out something very nice. democratic senator sent a very nice tweet. that's good, if somebody is
3:29 am
sending something like that they have to rerevaluate their spiritual state. something is wrong. ainsley: parents are grieving. guy driving the truck is upset this morning. quickly, what happened in the situation? do we know? was the guy trying to beat the train? >> i'm told, yes. i'm told that most commonly there's long coal trains and folks get kind of impatient so they are slow so they try to get in front of them and here comes an amtrak which is going faster. not too fast but faster. that's what i'm telling you about not what i directly observed. steve: senator, before you go, you were headed to and now you are at this republican retreat in west virginia. are the activities that were scheduled yesterday still on tap? is the vice president, the president still scheduled to speak to you later? >> yes. vice president spoke yesterday. the president will speak today. i'm told secretaries mattis and tillerson will speak. and so it's an important
3:30 am
conference. we will speak of infrastructure packages. so, we don't want to be diverted from that i think it's important to what we do in the senate and the house. but we have a constant remembrance of what happened yesterday. brian: you are going to a legislative clip on february 6th and something to do by march 5th. there is no time even to look back have you got so much on your plate. dr. cassidy, always great talking to you. >> thank you, all. steve: 6:30 in new york city. people left dangling upside down on a roller coaster 70 feet in the air. how did that happen and how did they get them off coming up? brian: plus, today is the day you will start to see more money in your paycheck. thanks to president trump's tax cuts. maxine waters wants to give president obama a lot of the credit. >> he attempts to take credit for economic growth. but refuses to acknowledge that he inherited our nation's thriving economy from our nation's first black president.

3:36 am
of this month. as of today. because tax rates have come down. paychecks will go up. so the federal government is going to be taking out less money? >> yes. taking out less money. let's be very clear about this. paychecks are going um because tax rates are going down. that's shall i repeat it? no. let me repeat what nancy pelosi has said three times. brian: do you know what we did? we recorded it on our vcr. >> what's that mean you are going to run a sound bite. brian: push the play button. ainsley: this is the reaction from the vice president because nancy pelosi called it crumbs and our president said these aren't crumbs. people have paying for their weddings. they are paying for their retirements. this is what the vice president had to say yesterday. >> just amazing to me that after this tax cut passes 3 million americans get another $1,000 in their pockets in many cases she actually described that as crumbs. well, let me just remind you

all, i come from the joseph a. bank wing of the west wing. [laughter] seriously, people stop me and say is that a new suit? i say two for one. [laughter] back when our kids were little, another thousand pockets at the end of my year i would have term for that, christmas. or maybe a new refrigerator. a down payment on a car. any leader in america that would say a thousand dollars in the pockets of working families is crumbs is out of touch with the american people. [applause] >> that will be true. that will be very true. ainsley: it is true. >> bonuses to 3 million americans already paid largely, that is not crumbs. a thousand dollars or 500 bucks to an ordinary every day american is not a crumb. and nancy pelosi is dead wrong when she says that 86 million middle class american families will see a pay -- will see a tax increase because of this tax bill. dead wrong.
3:38 am
deliberately misleading the american people. ainsley: the only thing i don't agree with him on i think joseph a. banks is buy one get three free. >> it's a good line. ainsley: it's a great line. steve: the crumbs don't even take into consideration with the tax cuts a lot of corporations have more money in their pockets and so what they are doing is they are buying new equipment. they are expanding. they are hiring more people. but there are a number of democrats though who and brian kind of touched on this a moment ago who are crediting president obama for the roaring economy. >> wait a second. let's look at the record for 2017. it was the best year for pay gains since 2008. best year for pay gains in 10 years. and look at the job situation. 2017, compared to the last year of president obama. there were 2.2 million more full-time jobs in 2017. under president trump. and 300,000 fewer part-time
3:39 am
jobs. steve: how do you explain that? >> what does that tell you about the quality of job creation in america? 2017 trump vs. 2016 mr. obama. it tells you that the quality of job creation has improved enormously and pay is going up. that is president trump. and it's president trump because he reversed the policies of president obama. it's a direct reversal. steve: right. >> this is the trump economy. not the obama economy. case closed. brian: and president obama could have had that corporate tax cut. he knew it would fuel the economy. he also wanted to rise the you were bracket and that's where the republican congress stood tall. >> his entire approach to economy was radically different than president trump. president obama wanted to reign it in, tax it, plan it, organize it, top down. didn't work slow growth. entrepreneurship tarik the regulations away, lower

we heard tuesday night how the president felt about that as he left the podium. >> release the memo? >> oh, yeah. don't worry. 100 percent. ains 80's the fbi has quote grave concerns about the nunes memo. brian: this is getting intriguing. judge andrew napolitano all over this here to react. judge, this has twist, turns, twist and turns. >> when we went to bed last night there was one memo. and the white house national security team headed by general mcmaster was reviewing it the fbi was over there saying here is why it shouldn't come out. here is what is bad. here is what is misleading. >> we wake up this morning and find out there is three memos. there is one congressman nunes wrote and congressman schiff wrote and there is a white house version which apparently has language tweaked in there to accommodate the fbi and political concerns. steve: is that what adam schiff is talking about nunes changed the memo. >> yes. now, congressman nunes says i improved the grammar. i didn't change anything
3:47 am
substantively, the fbi and the people in the white house are not telling us what they changed. but i have to say this. this is about very serious material. this is about raw intelligence data and interpreting it. if you are going to shade the interpretation of raw intelligence data to please political needs that is very wrong and highly misleading and innocent people will suffer because of that. ainsley: judge, the house intel committee voted on monday night to release a certain memo. isn't that the memo that has to be released and they are not allowed to make changes? >> theoretically yes but the chair has decided to change it and now apparently, we don't know yet, apparently our people are reporting this, john roberts and his team at the white house. the white house after dealing with the fbi is tweaking it so the fbi team goes back to the fbi building and the white house thinks it's an agreement and the fbi releases a statement to the press saying you can't release this. it's too many national security secrets in it. everybody is scratching their heads.
3:48 am
brian: judge, you said if they shade it, if devin nunes is shading it. what makes you think he is or do you think is he shading raw intelligence. >> i do not know that criticism of congressman nunes is they have known this for a year. and they sat on this while the congress voted to expand fisa. the rest of the congress should have been informed of this before they voted yes or no on expanding fisa. when did this come out? the day. brian: this is a separate issue. >> the day after president trump signed it we have heard two versions. when we went to bed last night 6:00 tomorrow. i got up this morning. the stuff i'm reading is saying 10:00 this morning. so we don't know. we are sitting on pins and needles. this better be as advertised. if this is being advertised as more than it, is, we are wasting our time. steve: have to vote on it if they change the language. >> that's a good question. democrats on the committee are saying because the republican also have voted on something that's different than would have came out. brian: judge, the whole question is did the fbi not
3:49 am
want it out because it makes them look bad or are they really worried about it misleading? >> brian, that's the $64,000 question and we don't know. my argument is when you have raw data. raw intelligence data and there are several different interpretations. we are adults. release the data. let us decide who abused spying authority? who knew about it? who looked the other way? who is not doing what they are paid to do? we have a right to know that in a democracy. ainsley: all the national intelligence stuff we are not allowed to see all the secrets. take that out if it's going to compromise someone judge judge this is filled with secrets. you might want to take names out because you don't want to harm sources. why are you smirking kilmeade? brian: so much. judge: i know you would another segment to do. but we could do this until 9:00 this morning when it comes out. ainsley: security tighter than ever for sunday's super bowl. gosh, that's a few days away. next step being taken to watch fan's every move. steve: democrats want to call it crumbs.

to republicans makes the fbi and the department of justice look bad. the department of justice and fbi have made 11th hour plays to the white house and to republicans don't let it out there. is a lot of secret stuff in there people can't handle it is essentially what they are saying. >> the democrats wanted to get their memo out. i imagine eventually it will be. i think it's probably as speaker ryan said we will put it out in the process. steve: to a rebuttal. you wonder what that's about. we don't know what the original memo says only rumors from people who shouldn't be talking about a memo. the memo goes up to the fbi. the fbi director sees it sunday. five more agents see it yesterday. they decide we would rather you not release this memo. then adam schiff, committee, devin nunes makes some changes and adam schiff is prompted to rebut by saying this discovered late tonight that chairman nunes made material changes to the memo he sent to the white house. changes not approved by the committee. white house therefore reviewing a document the committee has not approved
4:03 am
for release. steve: okay, so that sets this up. if and devin nunes apparently had said that he did make some little tweaks. some were grammar. some were clarifying statements. nonetheless, keep in mind. fbi, christopher wray said could you change this mr. nunes? and then you got the five agents. can you change this? it has since gone to the white house. the white house chief of staff, chief counsel rather is reviewing it and apparently so is the nsa. big question is if there are changes, will they have to vote on it again? can't vote on it today or tomorrow because half of congress, all the republicans are out in west virginia. ainsley: do deserve to know. in order to clean up agencies we need to know how to fix them. what the problems are americans want to see this. most americans do. judge napolitano was on with us earlier. he said you as the taxpayer. you have the right to know. listen. >> my argument is when you have raw data, raw intelligence data and there are several different interpretations we are adults. release the data. let us decide.

4:05 am
perhaps we will see the document and then we will be able to draw our own conclusions later today. ainsley: sources in the fbi have said there are a few bad apples. if there are, we want to know. steve: yeah. ainsley: even people within the own agency say if this is happening we deserve the right to know so our agency can clean itself up and get back to having a good reputation. brian: "the washington post" of all places yesterday said oh, yeah, andy mccabe, the guy that just left, he had all of anthony weiner's laptop emails with hillary clinton's name on them from huma abedin. oh, weeks before we actually saw them. really? and guess who voted to put them forward? peter strzok three weeks later. they could have been out as early as maybe if the new york field office had their way. andy mccabe sat on it for a while before telling james comey who made the october announcement that hillary clinton still despises. ainsley: we just got back from washington because the president was there with his first state of the union address. you saw it. 11 million people watch fox news channel. thank you so much. those were really high

ratings. highest rated cable channel. shows you people in america wanted to hear this. the president is in touch with what the american people care about. and that is putting food on their table, making sure the borders are safe. nancy pelosi disagreed with a lot of what the president said and here she is. listen to this. >> people in congress want to know some of them, what will the president sign? without any basis on evidence data and the rest to make statements about newcomers to our country and equating it in a criminal way? what was that about? what was that about last night? so it was -- i wouldn't say confusing. it was worse than that it was dangerous what he said last night. and it has instilled fear as i say over and over. what he is doing brings tears to the eyes of the statue of liberty and instills fear in the hearts of people who are concerned. steve: i'm a little confused because the statue of liberty sits not too far

steve: christensen emailed us the dems are carrying this complete hatred way too far. brian: i think it's separate when you see the polls show that most people like the speech. janet says never in all my years i have heard such hate come from the opposition party except for a few like joe manchin who we interviewed yesterday. stoop to new lows every day with the trash talk against our great country. i'm the one with tears in my eyes. at love people throw up their hands and say i'm not watching this anymore. i'm not watching the anger because it is starting to get to them. steve: meanwhile, you know what's starlighting to get to you if yoget -- starting to o you if you have a paycheck. starting today the withholding tables are changing which means less money will be taken out of your paycheck going to washington, d.c., which means more money is going to be kept in your pocket. stuart varney is a happy man today, obviously. and he says while the democrats are talking about crumbs and it's not really helping you, he says that

party is actually misleading as many americans as they can. >> paychecks are going up because tax rates are going down. nancy pelosi is dead wrong when she says that 86 million middle class american families will see a pay -- will see a tax increase because of this tax bill. dead wrong. deliberately misleading the american people. brian: wages are up fastest pace since 2008. stock market market went up fastest winning streak since 1959. we know that the average wages are increasing. the democrats have to decide. are they going to continue to deny the impact of the tax reform or are they going to just take credit for it? it seems they are going for the latter. they are taking credit for it. steve: that's all they have got. that's their only play. so many pundits said look, the republicans are going to lose the house and now they are looking at had no idea this thing was actually going to work. ainsley: the best president had the best lines when it

4:18 am
about. men are not angels, neither are women. the thing is people have the potential to be biased on either side. we know strzok and page had it in for president trump. they shouldn't be allowed to search any database that has americans information in it. ainsley: what's in that database, social security, text messages? steve: all your electronic history. >> potentially anything in discussion with foreigners. it was intended an the speaker was right when he said it's intended for foreigners in phone lands. i have no problem with that what happens is there is interaction. if you send something to a correspondent in fox in the middle east and you say we're doing a story on isis. well, isis is a term. so now you have been maybe collected because it's about information. so you didn't communicate with isis. but because you have communicated about a subject they are searching, i get scooped up. but they have the ability to scoop up everything. so, what i have told people like flynn's conversation we record flynn because we are spying on the rusts. use that information to see if he contradicts himself in an interview. think of your own personal
4:19 am
lives and think if i'm the government i come to you and i record a thousand of your private phone calls, then i bring new proximate result before the fbi what about that phone call you made two years ago and describe, you know, and if you don't describe it consistently, i'm going to put new jail. that would be a terrible world to live in. i think that's whether flynn was right or wrong. it's not the details. but we shouldn't do that in america where we record people's phone calls and then ask them about their details of their private phone calls. brian: i think a lot of it is if you have a master mind with hijackers in america and they are going back and forth with bin laden's plane to take down planes and kill 3,000 people. they will want to go find all the tentacles and rip all these people out like a plantar's wart. >> i'm fine with it but when american people get caught up in it. that information is supposed to be masked but shouldn't be used for domestic crime. let's say have you international businessman. go back 30 years of his conversations and find out he didn't cross his t's and

achings ains we are back with a fox news alert. we now know the identity of the person that was killed when a garbage truck collided with amtrak train that was packed with g.o.p. lawmakers in virginia. brian: trying to figure out what went wrong. steve: griff jenkins is live at the screen in crozet, virginia with the details. as the sun comes up, trying to figure out why that truck was on the track. >> that's right, steve. now that the sun is coming up, we are getting a much better look. i want you to see this debris field, just massive, with the back just crushed and mangled. as you work your way up along that rail, the cab where that one fatality christopher folly 28 years old was in with two other passengers, one of them critical, the other walking away with minor injuries. and the ntsb working hard. senator bill cassidy one of the members on that train joined us last hour.
4:35 am
take a listen. >> i'm thinking to myself we have doctors on board but there is no doctor in that truck. that truck got slammed harder than we. i start to work to the back of the train, looking for an open door. you go out and see two people on the ground and you start to work. >> the collision happening just a little before noon and they were obviously able to pull the members out and continue down to the retreat where they are today. house speaker paul ryan talking about the remarkable story of congress member turned first responder, here is what he said. i'm just so thankful to be the people who sprung into action today. [applause] i'm so thank will for the capitol police and physician members of congress who sprang into action. thank you so much for what you guys did today. it reminds you sometimes how fragile life can be. >> ntsb says they will be here for a few days and could be months before we
4:36 am
get a full report. one of the things they are going to be looking at railway cross signs you see up behind me. they were down yesterday. they are looking at whether those were properly working and other elements like blind spots and the speed of the train. a lot of factors happening here. but, again, the good part of this story, these members of congress treating people right away. one member of congress, by the way, congressman jason lewis suffered a concussion. the only member that was hurt guys? steve: griff jenkins live in virginia. thank you very much. meanwhile let's welcome in dana loesch. good morning to you. >> good morning, everyone. steve: so, after that train crash there was a liberal author who tweeted this out and then deleted it. before he deleted it somebody got a frame graph writes wow, between train full of g.o.p.ers hitting truck and this, god is working hard today to clean up the stink.
4:37 am
thank her, #trey gowdy #g.o.p. train wreck. perhaps mr. tasini didn't realize somebody died in that accident. >> you are right, steve. the sad thing is this individual wasn't the only person making remarks like this. i certain hollywood celebrities, michael ian black was one of them who thought it's okay to ridicule a fatal train crash because it involved republicans. is this really honestly the state of political discourse? aren't these the same people, by the way, who are constantly complaining about the state of political discourse? they have the audacity probably before this family member was notified of this tragedy. how about saying some kind words for those involved in this crash or maybe, heaven forbid, saying a prayer for the individuals who were involved in this and for the family of the individual who was killed this is awful.
4:38 am
steve: at least he did delete it. ainsley: let's talk about the state of the union address. president the mentioned in his speech, talked about the families though lost the 16-year-old girls killed by ms-13, the gang members. that's why we need the wall and legal immigration is so important. he says they were talking about daca. here is representative or congresswoman maxine waters. listen to what she said. speech cannot and does not make president trump presidential. he is not presidential and never will be presidential. he claims he is bringing people together. but, make no mistake, is he a dangerous, unprincipled, divisive, and shameful racist trump often works to convince dissatisfied elements in our society is that all of their problems are caused by people of color. ainsley: dana, when some
4:39 am
democrats say the bone 234usbonusesare crumbs. that doesn't resonate. will this help them in november. >> no, absolutely not, ainsley. i think it's shameful that these identity politics and the race card, using this argument this is the last refuge for individuals who have no other argument. they are terrified because the economy is doing well and the president hit hard on that in his state of the union address i thought it was a great address. it started off strong. i spoke with listeners all across the country yesterday. i took callers all three hours on my radio program yesterday. every single personal. even people really critical of the president during his first year in office really liked this address. one poll showed 72% of independents actually approved of this address and that's the demo that put him over the top in november 2016. that's the demo that democrats need to continue to be relevant. so they don't have the product they don't have the
4:40 am
messaging anymore. they have to fall back on the race card. as far as them talking about ms-13. and i know a lot of progressive pundits have been trying to down play ms-13 it's shameful the ignorance they have on display. they do not know that the massachusetts u.s. attorneys office considers this one of the largest criminal organizations in the united states with over 6,000 members in over 46 states responsible for many, many deaths. that they would down play this and that they would try to down play how illegal entry plays into ms-13 how it's important to secure our borders. it's shameful and displays an ignorance that they feel proud to parade on television with. the president was spot on about this. and these families, how could anyone sit here and say and talk about how entering the country illegally is somehow racist? particularly when you have minority communities that are negatively disproportionately negatively impacted by illegal entry? i don't know how anyone could look. brian: right. >> at the grieving parents of those women, the two
4:41 am
girls murdered by ms-13 sitting there in the box with the first lady and they are grieving silently. this is affecting middle class americans. it's affecting all americans. it's affecting our families. something needs to be done about it. brian: brentwood is mostly hispanic, black and hispanic, and they have been the victims of ms-13. that's where both of those families are from. one of those girls was probably looking at a basketball scholarship had she just not been walking home from school. what were a lot of the democratic lawmakers doing? well looking glum in many respects and doing something else on their phones. look at this. one of these enterprising reporters in the gallery was able to shoot over the shoulders of some of the lawmakers. and they are checking their email and maybe even playing candy crush. >> i'm surprised they have thinking to criticize brian state of the union addressing as half of them weren't paying attention or sitting on their hands which floored me. the president is talking about unity and talking
4:42 am
about record low unemployment across every demographic, how are you not allowing that? is that so bad jobs are bad. unity is bad? you can't applaud for those things? beyond this defeatist attitude that democrats have. either they want to go forward and they want prosperity or they don't. steve: well, maybe the reason they didn't stand up and clap is because they were on level 9 of candy crush. [laughter] steve: dana loesch, thank you very much. i can't stand up i'm on level 9. ainsley: you seem to know a lot about it thanks, dana. steve: 18 minutes before the top of the hour. jillian: i'm proud to say i have never played candy crush. ainsley: me either. my mom, however. brian: i'm guessing there is a level 9. jillian: get you caught up on headlines starting with this not just the flu virus. now medication is being blamed for at least one death. an indiana family says tamiflu caused a 16-year-old to take his own life. charlie harp killing himself less than 24 hours after taking tamiflu. his aunt blaming the

house of representatives. they said you know what? you could change some stuff. so nunez did that. so the big question is whether or not they will have to revote on it now. can't vote on it now, all the republicans are in west virginia at the retreat. ainsley: they had problems with what they thought the fbi or doj was doing behind the scenes and what individuals working for the age were doing behind the scenes. they put the memo together. they voted monday night to release it. if they did changes, does it need another vote to be released? what are the changes we're talking about. this is the republican memo. this story changed so many times. i wonderedder if they added a few things. brian: does the fbi embarrassing to them or mischaracterization of the data we gave them. ainsley: what we heard it shows abuse of power at the fbi. steve: changes is grammar and to

5:16 am
without names and the like would not be real meaningful to the american people. so i am hopeful if it is released today, not only will we start to see the rest of the picture, but i'm won of the few that have actually read the democrat memo. if they will correct some of the factual errors and sourcing issues there, i'm all for releasing that. nothing in their memo contradicts what was in the original republican memo and that's important if this is released. even the fbi did not find any factual inaccuracies in the memo when they reviewed it. steve: then why did adam schiff make some changeses? a bunch of of fbi guys looked at it. it is at the white house right now. adam schiff says substantial changes were made to the memo? >> well, substantial changes, you have to consider the source. adam schiff has been saying do not let the american people know what is going on. let's keep everything secret because indeed, the story that
5:17 am
is out there really is talking about abuses. and so substantial changes, does it mean a grammatical change or does it mean one word here or there? i can tell you, i had a lengthy conversation with chairman nuon needs -- nunez last night. he stands bit memo. i stand by him in his constitutional duty to actually inform the american people. you know has a constitutional obligation to notify members of congress if there has been fisa abuses. so i applaud him in that effort. american people need to see this and judge it for themselves,. steve: steve congressman, democrats say you and other republicans and this memo are trying to discredit robert mueller and his probe. >> i heard that challenge. the interesting thing is, i have not talked any about the special counsel and the work that he is doing. this is all about what was

leading up to the 2016 election, november 8th. what was done and more importantly what was not done. as we looked at that, i call on us appointing a special counsel, a second one to investigate the investigators. i think that the american people want to make sure that lady justice has a blindfold. it is not with us the well-connected that get off because they wouldn't, if they were under the same set of circumstances. steve: of course the circumstances regarding your republican retreat there in greenbrier, west virginia, many members of congress took the train out that hit that trash truck that killed the driver. you weren't on. you were driving by your own car out to west virginia. are things still going to go according to schedule or have you modified what is on your itinerary? >> we did modify our schedule last night. obviously we were praying for the families that have lost
5:19 am
loved ones. even for those in harm's way, it was a very, very somber mood last night. a lot of people were shaken by that event. we had doctors, gop doctors that got out and actually tried to help some of those that were on the truck and i got a first-hand description of that last night from dr. cassidy. and so i think it just shows that each day is a gift that we have and a blessing. you shouldn't take it for granted but today it is pretty much business back to normal. we've got secretary mattis and secretary tillerson briefing us this morning and the president coming later. steve: congressman a year ago when the president was first elected, no surprise, there were a number of members of the republican party in congress who weren't all on board the trump train. fast forward after we heard the president of the united states give the state of the union
5:20 am
address. are more members of your caucus behind this president now? >> well i can tell you there were more standing ovations and truly more appreciation for this president and the fact that he is getting things done on behalf of the american people than i have ever heard. not only was the state of the union address truss a tremendous success, a-plus, but yes we're behind him. we worked not only hand-in-glove on tax reform but we'll be working hand-in-glove on infrastructure an regulatory roleback in 2018. accomplish what we set out to do, drain the swamp and change washington, d.c. for the american people. steve: president of the united states will address your group later today. mark meadows, from the great state of north carolina. thank you so much. >> great to be with you, steve. thanks. steve: pleasure. remember when the disgraced teacher on unpaid leave said

5:26 am
ainsley: joining us now for exclusive interview the high school senior who recorded that rant. his name is victor quinonez, he along with his attorney trevor join us now. thanks for being with us. victor, tell us what happened. recount what happened that day when you recorded. >> well, pretty much that day was another student wearing a marine corps shirt and i was wearing my marine corps sweater. the teacher noticed he was wearing a shirt. i looked down, remember i had my marine sweater on. i tried my best to hide it, why he shouldn't go and why he shouldn't wear it. but as i went up to turn in my assignment, pretty much he looked at my sweater, really, not you too? he made me explain myself in front of the whole entire class. why did i want to join the military. i wanted to tell him that it's a family tradition. it is something i've been wanting to do as kid.
5:27 am
he told me if it was testimonily tradition to beat women would you continue it? i stood quiet. pretty much trying to put word in my mouth. sat down. stood quiet. had respect for him, when he didn't deserve it. that is what my family told them, respect those that don't respect you. as i heard him start ranting about the military, i ended up taking out my phone, he allowed us to have phones out, i began to record it. steve: the rest is history. let me ask you, victor, mr. salcido, the teacher, in your history has he gone on rants like this before about all sorts of things or was it just once in a lifetime, suddenly snapped starts talking about bad-mouthing the military? >> no, he is known for ranting about many things like religion, the military and other things. steve: okay. brian: just to be clear, you said, if he equated you joining the military to if your family
5:28 am
beat their, beat their women would be the same thing? he equated joining the military to that? >> yes. brian: unbelievable. when you started recording, is it your understanding he did not know you were recording and, what did he do? >> you know, he didn't know that i was recording but since he lets us have our phone out, i took that as advantage to record him. brian: what has been the response since? >> you know, i have a lot of people supporting me and a lot of students who don't support me. people who are my friend. i still respect them, even if they don't support me. you can still be my friend. ainsley: victor, how does that make you feel when your teacher is saying this about the military and your family? >> you know, i felt really hurt and because, you know, they're not all dumb sh-as he said.
5:29 am
my family has done a lot of great things. steve: why does victor have an attorney? >> we want to make sure we don't fail to take advantage of any opportunities to protect victor's family. as you guys probably know, since this started, this family has been getting death threats. they have some legitimate concerns. i work with an organization that provides services to vets and i was happy to volunteer my services, to help the family out because, i'm, i'm appalled by the way that victor was treated by his teacher and they're going to need help. so, we are still reviewing our legal options at this point, and we haven't committed to any particular path to solve, we haven't committed to any particular path resolving the problems but, we do think that it's appropriate for him to have legal counsel. that is why my friend asked me to be here.
5:30 am
i'm happy to do it. brian: do you think the teacher is going to sue victor? >> i, i couldn't man what for? ainsley: i can't imagine, i can't believe you're getting death threats. that is appalling to me. how does that make you feel? >> you know, makes me feel unsafe for my family. i'm not so worried about myself. just more worried about my siblings, my parents. steve: right. ainsley: you may have a few that don't support you, victor, majority of our viewers, the majority of this country support what is you do and what your family has done so we can have our freedom. we want to thank you. steve: victor, the teacher is on unpaid, i don't know whether it is unpaid. ainsley: on administrative leave. steve: do you want him fired? >> from the stories i hear now, ever since i stood up and you know went against him, other students are coming up, telling their stories of what
5:31 am
mr. salcido has done to them, what he said to them. i believe he should be fired, yes. brian: by the way your dad served in the marines, two tours, two other family members served in the military also. you're wearing marine shirt. >> yes. brian: victor, what are you doing about your military career? >> you know, right now, i'm just on track to graduate from high school and go to maps. we'll see from there. steve: victor, trevor thank you very much for joining us, telling us your story in the exclusive interview. ainsley: victor, you're courageous. you did the right thing. you didn't do anything wrong. now the story out there. maybe this teacher won't be able to brainwash more teenagers and tell them how much he hates our military. because we love you all. we appreciate what your family and some others have done to sacrifice for this great country. >> thank you. brian: trevor, great job volunteering your services. you are doing great thing. >> i appreciate you guys gives us a platform. brian: thanks, guys.

devin nunez release. he revised at request of the fbi some portions of the memo causing adam schiff, the ranking member on the intelligence committee saying we have to revote on this it should not be released at all. i double down on that. what is interesting to you about this debate? >> only thing interesting to me of the debate obsfucation of underlying material. i've been calling declassification as much as possible. we don't know who to trust. somebody is lying or everybody is lying. nunez is exaggerating malfeasance or everybody is exaggerating everywhere. we'll not know that until we see the underlying memo but the underlying classified information as much available for release because we don't know who to trust. i lay a lot of this at the hands of the obama administration. it is pretty clear at this point the obama administration was impeding the hillary clinton investigation with the help of the fbi or at least players within the fbi and we don't know to what extent the fbi was involved in some sort of
5:37 am
nefarious activity with the trump campaign or we're doing their job. we will not know any of that until we see the stuff. right now a lot of speculation and innuendo about stuff the american people haven't seen. that is forcing people to choose between narrative story lines lines which they have no evidence to support. steve: sound like possibility we actually could see later on today. the republican was like to get it out. so would the president of the united states. john kelly told brian yesterday it will be out very, he shortly. let me ask you this, why is the department of justice and fbi, they're both going to the white house, you can't run this thing. they're hitting the panic button on it. do you buy into the whole deep state thing or is it something else? >> i mean i don't know the answer to that. again i don't think we're going to know the answer until this stuff is declassified. sure it is possible there is some sort of national security risk in revealing how fisa memos were gathered or how fisa warrants were gathered, rather, but we don't know that noll we actually know that fbi is basically saying trust us. doj is saying trust us, you
5:38 am
can't see this stuff. the trust is the entire question. the question is whether we can trust them. we're being told by both members of the trump administration and devin nunez they're obviously not trustworthy. until the american people get to see this we'll not know whether this is republican overplay or attempt to shut down the mueller investigation or attempt to smear the fbi or whether this is the fbi attempting to protect itself from its own malfeasance. brian: only thing i would say, mueller is here, this is here, as speaker ryan said, we're not looking, trey gowdy, said we're not looking to stop the mueller investigation. this is something different. >> yep. i mean, and i think that is the key distinction that republicans ought to be making. listen, it is our job, we're an oversight body. it is our job to oversee an institution we created. it is our job to look into what the fbi did with regard to the hillary investigation. we're not trying to shut down the mueller investigation. if they make that clear it looks a lot less politically motivated i think. ainsley: ben, most republicans

according to polls, most independents, they like the president's state of the union address a few nights ago. we were there covering that. you were there too, or you watch the speech. joy reid, a host over at msnbc, this is what she tweeted about it. she said church, family, police, military, the national anthem, trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s era nationalism. the goal of this speech is to appear to be force normalization of trump on the terms of the buy gone era his supporters are nostalgic for, #sotu. what is your opinion? >> politics used to get your politics to oppose motherhood, apple pie and american flag. democrats are embracing that. joy reid is saying motherhood terrible, apple pie, terrible, american flag terrible. this is not about 1950s america. this is gap created by the hard left in the united states which opposes all of these unifying institutions. that is what was truly amazing about the state. union is that the president i
5:40 am
thought did a good job, why the polls reflected how popular the state of the union was. he did a good job mentioning a lot of things that unify americans, among them, police, military, national anthem. the flag. democrats were sitting for those things deer riding that. good luck in 2018 if that is your strategy. steve: what unites america, is the word america. aclu complained that the president used america, a gigantic number. said this tonight the president trump said this word, america more than 80 times in his speech. after divisive first year we hear and feel how exclusionary that america is with policies harmed so many vulnerable american communities. they're using it. the aclu actually, americans, first letter in their acronym, stand ready to protect these communities both in the courts and at the polls. do they have a point? >> no. this is astonishing. the american civil liberties union, call them the
5:41 am
international civil liberties union? they only exist in the united states because of american liberties, american freedoms, the american constitution. steve: stop doing that. you're as bad as trump. >> this is totally nuts. if you are so anti-the word america because it is so exclusive, give up the title american, right? you should not be considering yourself an american. too exclusionary. maybe be a world citizen with all the privileges that entails. brian: lastly, ben, to sum up, year one in the books. the president laid out what he wants for year two. in november how will this thing play out? how will it affected midterms. >> a lot will depend if the president we saw during the state of the union is the president we see for the rest of the year. i thought he did excellent job in the state of the union. he laid forth a story he wanted to tell. we'll see what his agenda is. he talked a lot about what he did in 2017 and what he will be doing in 2018. democrats will be highly intransgent. president's greatest ally in republican victory are chuck
