3:05 am
question is did the president know anything about the warrant, did susan rice know the dossier from mister steele when he was on payroll from russian sources, and the warrant application, political nature and mister steele hated donald trump, candidate trump, was trying to do anything to beat him, not exactly by the book. >> they wrote the national archives and said anything he and senator grassley, anything related to this investigation as relates to both investigations moving forward, susan rice is right in the middle of this big mystery and forced to go front another story which is not true but defined that story and i'm wondering why they keep going back to the term by the book. >> that means they didn't break any rules but does that means

that? >> by the book, by the book. >> was it a memo to inoculate anybody from future investigations? we don't know but did you notice it sounds like barack obama knew about the dossier at the time. why hasn't he been quiet about it? when you are president of the united states you are the leader of your political party and who paid for the dossier? democratic party funded by hillary clinton, the dnc. >> later from donna brazil's book bailed out hillary clinton campaign they were subservient to hillary clinton. and the other blockbuster story in my mind, byron york in washington examiner talked about the tao, his sources told him james comey when he was still on the job told two other people from his perspective michael flynn did not lie to the fbi.

impression flynn would not be charged for the crime. 9 months later was comey gone and robert mueller in charge of the trump russia investigation flynn pleaded guilty to one count of making false statements to the fbi in that questioning. just like the title of hillary's book, people want to know what happened. >> to reframe the whole thing after eight years of doing nothing against russia while they take over ukraine, fly to the middle east, suddenly get tough three weeks before they are done and put sanctions on russia for meddling in the election so evidently on some level michael flynn has a meeting with the ambassador and says don't overreact, we will take over, re-examined this whole thing, steve hadley used to have a job michelson had 24 days and said i don't see what is wrong if he simply said don't

4:03 am
15 minutes out of job still using the white house equipment, she typed out president obama began the conversation, this is talking about oval office meeting regarding russia collusion, started the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the intel and law enforcement communities by the book, the president stressed that he's not asking about initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective, he reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book. that all sounds like exactly how a lawyer would describe, okay, if you're going to have a meeting, you should do it this way, the question is, is that what happened and what happened before? lindsey graham had observations with martha. >> what i'm worried is this an effort by the president to basically get himself on the record through susan rice to make sure that from his point of
4:04 am
view everything was done by the book. the question is, did the president know anything about the fisa warrant application, did susan rice know that the warrant application included a dossier from mr. steele when he was on the payroll of the democratic party coming from russian sources and that the information in the fisa warrant application was a dossier that was politically in nature and that mr. steele hated president trump, candidate trump and was trying to do anything he could to beat him. that's not exactly by the book. brian: he went onto say, look at what happened, abusive power and not by the book. this is really odd. a couple of things, if you keep saying it's by the book or i'm being honest, usually means you're not. i'm not saying it's not. james comey says all of the time, you know, something about president trump when i met with him i had to write a quick recap of everything we discussed but when it came to president obama i never felt that way or president bush, when asked how many times you met with
4:05 am
president obama he said twice, he never mentioned the meeting with joe biden, james comey, susan rice and the president and, of course, and sally yates talking about what happened. some would say on the other side, look, something that president obama saw was so alarming on january 5th that he wanted to proceed with an investigation which ended as far as he's concerned january 20th. steve: the argument against that particular scenario is if it was so alarming on january 5th, he would have written a memo on january 5th, you wouldn't have waited until high noon on the inauguration day. ainsley: two things are suspicious about things that we want answers, she wrote the e-mail to herself 15 days after the meeting. i understand if you're james comey, we need to look at his notes, he comes out memos. she writes this e-mail to herself three things are suspicious, why is she writing to herself, she's doing 15 days after the meeting, why, and she's doing it 15 minutes after
4:06 am
she lost her job. steve: one of the things that a lot of politics and washington do do is they do memorialize their notes by sending themselves an e-mail. that's not unusual. the earlier point so on target. why did she wait three weeks -- i do. i read a thing this morning on one website, a lot of people in washington send themselves emails. ainsley: i have done that before but not 15 days later about notes from the meeting i've had. steve: the other thing is barack obama was being briefed about the russia collusion, he knew about the dossier, right, did he know that the dossier was used with a bunch of cook-upped material to get the fisa and also why hasn't the former president of the united states been queried about this? brian: sooner or later. quite a few between infrastructure on down was the president saying it's beginning,

the most part. you look at the right, you have the president's plan, and you look at the left and they've got just the dreamers, obviously they are going to wind up having both on both, they don't have any democrats who are signed up, no republican for the most part is going to vote for the democrat plan ultimately what they are going to do is go to base and say, well, we tried that, it didn't work so we came up with this compromise if they are able to do anything at all. ainsley: i think they will have to vote for this. the dreamers are going to get mad and said this was your chance to keep news the country. that's all you care about. brian: you didn't do in 2011 or eight years when president obama was in office. now you say you have somebody that wants to do a deal and you don't want to do a deal and they will be screaming out in brooklyn in front of chuck schumer's office. border security for daca and then tom cotton says no, we will put in end chain migration and lottery system and that's where
4:09 am
the negotiation will start and also where the money is going to come from, the 28 billion or 25 billion the president wants. steve steve the senate is one thing and you have the house, and if the senators come out with something that's mushy in the middle and by the time it gets to the republican-led house they will veto it and if the president doesn't like it he is going to say, sorry, can't sign it. brian: chuck schumer speaks yesterday and had a message, he never brings russia investigation and when he talks about winning midterms and 2020, he know that is being just antitrump doesn't work, listen. >> you cannot just run against donald trump and it is the job of we democrats to put together a strong cohesive economic group of proposals aimed at the middle class and those struggling get there. ainsley: sounds like a
4:10 am
republican message to me. steve: well, you know what, he was appearing at an event in university of louisville, mitch mcconnell is standing right over there. ainsley: know your audience kind of thing. brian: he did checked off a few items from better deal approach. he got in the last budget 5.8 billion for child care development, block grant program, 20 billion in infrastructure, broadband funds, that's a republican item too and ticked off a few things that he got on the budget, they got the freedom caucus so angry. >> the democrats got pretty much everything they wanted and the republicans a big deficit. brian: opioid $6.8 billion for that, so some spending really goes to the trump agenda. ainsley: a mom who lost son to
4:11 am
opioid abuse, we learned -- i think it's 172 people die every single day or did last year in this country -- steve: no doubt. brian: you know it costs us a trillion dollars. ainsley: not only lives but money to crack down on it. >> i like a deal. i do like a deal. good morning, guys, let's get back to breaking news, detroit michigan, three women killed, three police officers hurt during stand-off, he shot and killed her and family members and turned the gun on himself, before that he was firing at police for nearly an hour hitting three in the legs. >> police of detroit and first responders. jillian: all will make full

4:18 am
the middle class. david brodie, chief political correspondent. david, mark, could we put those ap things back up on the screen again? you have them touting president obama, he spent nearly the same amount, but he combated terror threats and global warming and pledged assistance for the middle class even though both of those budgets did also feature soaring deficits like president trump, what's going on? >> a couple of things, first, antitrump filter in full force for the associated press. last year they did the same thing. last year they talked about how the republican budget was going to gut, that was the word gut science and environment that was factual analysis and then came the opinion afterwards, i like to call the shot and the chaser. that was what republicans are against maybe stream climate and
4:19 am
all of that, they were given opinion and it's ridiculous. steve: i remember when i was in journalism school and everybody associated associated press as fair broker, are you saying they are becoming political? >> yeah, if donald trump has done and done a lot, he has exposed the media bias like we have never seen before. we knew it existed before but he has literally, we are talking about cnn, quote, most trusted news, regular main anchor hosts are now giving opinion commentary at the end of their programs. it's just fascinate to go watch. steve: it is. you have a brand-new book comes out today the faith of donald j. trump. talks about him being religious fellow, explain his journey. >> a couple of things, it is a spiritual journey for sure and been going on for the last five
4:20 am
years or so. a lot of stories in the book, we actually speak with donald trump for the book, it's a new interview in the book in the oval office, sorry, michael wolff but we actually did interview with the president in the oval office, two with vice president as well, paulia white says, i've had deep spiritual conversations with this president, with donald trump who she's known for a while and says 10% he's allowed in believer in lord jesus christ. it's all in the book. steve: the faith of donald j. trump. all right, mr. brodie. >> appreciate it. steve: president trump is set to meet with a group of sheriffs at the white house today, during last meeting last year he promised to get rid of illegal criminal immigrants. a new battle between mitch mcconnell and chuck schumer and has nothing to do with politics.

by company takata, pickups have potentially explosive and deadly air bag, dealers will pick the truck up and replace the bag. and finally $25 million, that's how much money ford is pumping into their new plant in the state of kentucky. the automaker will boost production of suv's and trucks by about 25%, plant employs about 8400 people. that's some of the news by the numbers, ainsley, brian. ainsley: thank you, steve. last year president trump met with sheriffs from across the country covering crucial topics like border security and opioid epidemic. brian: later president trump will meet with the sheriffs, he wants a follow-up. somebody who will be at the meeting, the sheriff of polk county, sheriff, thank you so much for meeting with us today before you meet with the president, what can you tell in terms of progress. >> well, as president of the
4:26 am
county, the president does what he said he's going to do. he looked us in the eye and said, i commit to you that we will get the illegal alien who is committing crime out of this country and do you know we met with him and secretary kelly within days of them taking office and they are doing what they said they would do and that's a breath of fresh air for all of us. ainsley: i know that attorney general jeff sessions spoke at the national sheriff's association meeting yesterday because you all are there in dc for this meeting. what do -- what message if the president is watching, what message do you want to relay to him? >> i would like to tell president trump that ag sessions is doing an awesome job. he is working toward enforcing the rule of law. what a novel concept, congress passed the laws, we need to make
4:27 am
sure that they are fairly and equitably enforced. ag sessions have been supporter of sheriffs in the country and all law enforcement and we applaud him. brian: there's been pushback, sheriff, from different sanctuary city, states, the mayor rahm emmanuel and the mayor of san francisco who basically don't want you to do your job in many respects and pushing back on ice's help. >> what are you thinking? that's not normal america. we don't want anybody committing crimes and it's like are you kidding me? you think it's all right for someone to commit crime to come across this border illegally, then to commit murderers and rapes and robberies and burglaries every day by the hundreds and thousands, that's not how real america thinks. ainsley: i know you said crime is historic low, 46-year low,
4:28 am
why do you think that is? >> i can tell you in my county, we hold people accountable, what a novel idea about asking criminals to either, one, behave, or two be held accountable for your conduct and that's what we do in state of florida and we have seen low crime rate across the country. my fear now is that because we have a 46-year low crime rate, because our index crime is so much lower than it used to be for most of this country, not some of these cities where they seem to let people commit a lot of crime, is i'm hearing talk about letting more people out of prison, let's legalize more drugs, let's do away with the bell bond system, you know, folks, take it from someone who has spent their entire adult life in the criminal justice system and protecting, keeping people safe, crime will go up if you do that.
4:29 am
brian senator grassley is working with senator durbin and pushing to do some kind of criminal justice reform, a couple of items, rehab in prison, shorter sentences for nonviolent criminals, are you for looking at the criminal justice system? >> i think there's always an opportunity to improve. certainly i'm for reentry programs where you prepare prisoner that go back to workforce. i'm not for shorter prison sentences and that minor offenses are less serious offenses, that's all in the mind of the beholder, i can tell you a minor offender is a major offender on the next event. don't buy into that rhetoric that we ought to let the low-level minor offenders out, they earned prison and they should get it. brian: two officers killed over the weekend, nine killed already in 2018. at this point in 2017 only 5, so sadly, the cops are still under fire on a regular basis.
4:30 am
>> that's right. eight of my deputies were shot at in the last month in two separate events, fortunately none of them were hit, but there are people that are proactively looking for and looking for the opportunity to hurt law enforcement officers and president trump is our best ally right now. brian: appreciate what you're doing. straight ahead, the entire world still in awe after spacex launched one of the most powerful launches ever. newt gringrich says this is a big step in putting america back on top of space race. he joins us next. ainsley: "fox & friends" goes to the dog at the westminister dog show. >> just teasing like my hair. no hair spray though. >> no. ainsley: janice takes us behind the scenes and that's coming up

♪ç steve: once a week newt gingrich drops by. former speaker of the house. he wrote that great book called, vengance. mr. speaker, good morning to you. ainsley: good morning. >> good to be with you alls always. steve: we've all been scratching our heads. we can not figure out what susan rice was doing 15 minutes into the trump administration on inauguration when she wrote a memo to herself, an email, essentially saying that the president obama and other top law enforcement and fbi doj people did everything by the book when it came to the russia collusion meeting they had in the oval office three weeks
4:35 am
earlier. what do you make of this? >> well, it may have been there for her to think that that would help protect her. it may have been there because some day she will write a memoir and she just wanted to individual. first of all i don't know that we ever heard from comey the former director of the fbi, that he had been briefing president obama. he had been in these kind of meetings. so i thought from the time we first saw the peter strzok text message to his girlfriend about having to get ready because president obama wants to know everything, i think from that point on we have real obligation for congress to bring former director comey back. put him under oath, say, now did you in fact brief the president? what did he ask you about? talk about obstruction of justice and president's interfering in the system, all of this gets stranger and, i told people, when i lived through watergate, i was
4:36 am
candidate for first time as the nixon administration disintegrated things start to unravel. one thing pulls another thing and one morning you're in a space you never dreamed of because they keep on raveling. susan rice's memo is one more example of this thing gradually unraveling. ainsley: benghazi, blamed it on the video. went on the sunday shows, lied to the american people about it. the timing of this is so bizarre. why do you think she wrote this memo 15 days after the meeting, notes from the meeting. she kept saying inç her notes o herself, that the president insisted we do everything by the book? she used that phrase at least twice? >> well, i mean i'm guessing that she had taken those notes and hadn't gotten around to it. this is a guess. as a historian, that she had finally gotten around to it, had a few extra minutes, thought she
4:37 am
would capture it. ainsley: as she is cleaning out her office? >> they were probably contemporaneous. i think literally, i had that happen to me. i saw a piece of paper from a meeting three weeks ago that i never quite got around to capturing in an email or putting into a file. i will write out something. it may well have been she was justtude did iing up but it does look strange. brian: giving her the benefit of the doubt. that is very nice of you. she has nine more days to respond. i thought that was interesting, senator grassley and senator graham concerned as anyone, they're not exactly zealots for donald trump. don't you think if president trump knew about this, knew how involved comey was, he would have been fired on day one, correct? >> sure, of course. if everybody understood that comey began writing the clinton exoneration two months before the interviewed her, he would have fired had him on day one. if everyone knew comey was
4:38 am
apparently changing the language what the attorney general told him parallel to the clinton campaign, he would have been fired on day one. look what we have learned about director comey. this guy was totally in the tank, doing everything he could to protect clinton and get trump. he really has a huge potential legal problem. steve: mr. speaker, we want to also talk to you about fox news opinion piece you wrote about how spacex falcon rocket is tremendous step toward reasserting american leadership in space. there you see it blasting off last week t was something. we saw it live here on the channel. 4-@to land, two of the rockets. mr. speaker, the president of the united states with his budget talking about how maybe the international space station kind of goes semiprivate or something else, to have private industry involved in that. explain why you wanted to write this particular op-ed.
4:39 am
>> look, i think the two great entrepreneurs who are rapidly changing space are elon musk and jeff bezos. musk has had remarkable string ever successful launches, recaptured the commercial satellite market for the united states and progress being made by blue origin, jeff bezos company, we'll have two very large rockets available in the very near future. you saw first one. the john glenn will be second one for bezos. i've been communicating with both companies. $100 million a launch because they're reusable. by contrast the nasa long-term investment in the space launch system comes in over billion dollars a launch. now you have the private sector able to compete at 10 to one in terms, they're not quite as
4:40 am
capable. they had to use two launches to match up the nasa rocket, the government rocket still five times more expensive per unit in space. than the private sector. the administration actually needs to be more aggressive than it has been in its budget t rethink every aspect of the national budget. it should recognize that you have entrepreneurs creating a few world using new technology. you have bureaucrats, stuck in an old world. you have the old time lobbyists and contractors in washington desperately trying to prop up the implausible. so i think it's a very big moment in space. i thoughtç it was wonderful showmanship by musk to put a tesla with star man in it and launch it out there. the reason is, i have two grandchildren, 16 and 18. i want them looking at that kind of thing saying hey, coy be involved in space. coy have a career doing really cool things. musk did a great thing for america this week. brian: much bigger in the '60s

5:06 am
she is saying, we're going to follow all the instructions the president of the united states said, who clearly had been briefed on the dossier which we know was all made up and was used to get the fisa thing to spy on all of the trump team, which begs the question when will the former president of the united states be queried. brian: the president there, vice president there, you have sally yates there, susan rice there. january 5th. no reason to write it down. ainsley: james comey. brian: yeah, james comey. no reason to write it down. then january 20th, i have to write it down quickly. why? she wrote an email response saying it is no big deal. we do that all the time. that just came out in response to this. that is susan rice weighing in.ç she was nine days to get back to senator lindsey graham and senator chuck grassley, wanted everything was possible. so the national archives gave them these notes. they found this letter. now they want her to answer a bunch of questions. they even jotted down the questions and sent them to her. they hope to get it back. judge napolitano to the the

would have her account what happened that day. but still very curious. what do you think is behind this? email us, friends at brian: thysç was susan rice's attempt to blunt someone saw the meeting taking place, may have been on the outskirts of a meeting, not a principle, someone who attended. ultimately this would come up how she with want to memorialize it so it would not look like something under the white house and obama administration was trying to hide. they think somebody saw the meeting take place. she got wind they saw it and quickly wrote it down. steve: that would suggest there is informant. there are informants talking to members of con brings. is this one of them? don't know. stay tuned. ainsley: that story happened on january 20th. four days after the inauguration the fbi sits down with michael flynn who is the nsa advisor to president trump, and they sit down and they question him. then eventually he loses his job. he has to step down.

5:10 am
yates looked at all the information about flynn, you know what, he is susceptible. we should charge him with the logan act, negotiating with a foreign entity, even though, in his job he would have been okay to talk about anything given he was incoming national security advisor. so was it sally yates who said, okay, don't care what the fbi says, we're going after him on the logan act. ainsley: wow. brian: "washington examiner" said this, byron york found this out, he had two sources familiar with the meetings.3% comey told lawmakers that the fbi agents that interviewed flynn, one was peter strzok did not believe flynn lied to them or any inaccuracies in his answers were intentional. as a result some of those in attendance came away with the impression flynn would not be charged with a crime. nine months later, mueller are in charge, comey gone and he is charged in the trump russia investigation. flip appliedç guilty of one cot of making false statements to the fbi on january 24th in his questioning.

the president's framework bill is not opening bid for negotiations. it's a best and final offer. the white house took ideas from a lot of different proposals floated around five 1/2 months. they put those into coherent logical package on one hand the president surprised people willing not to just giver legal citizenship to 1.8 million young illegal immigrants brought here through no fault of their own through the age of accountability. to do that we have to be responsible bit. it will encourage more illegal immigration. we know that. we need to secure the southern border. the bill provide money and resources to do so. it would create a whole new pool of illegal immigrants to legalize their parents that created problem. we have end the chain migration. that is popular proposal. two think of the american people want. the 2/3 of the american people are right. brian: here are many so of the principles. 25 billion for border security. not just a wall.

5:36 am
didn't operate by the book. it raises a lot of serious questions. there have been two storylines when it comes to the russia probe. fbi investigation and now special counsel probe has found no evidence of collusion but a eparate story the mainstream media really isn't covering it, talks about what the fbi, doj, we saw with the text messages last week and email that you guys are talking about right now, maybe the white house was involved in prompting this investigation and you know, there are real questions that senator grassley and senator graham have raised. i think they demand answers. steve: we don't know whether or not she was trying to rewrite whatever happened in the oval office meeting, but certainly trying to memorialize that version so that when it was accepted by the, and memorialized by the national archives, that's is what they would have officially on the record, right? >> that sounds right. again we don't know what happened in that meeting. i think that email raises real questions. ainsley: talk about the budget. the president rolled out his new
5:37 am
budget proposal. there is difference the way the media is covering his budget proposal the way they did president obama's. for instance, look at ap tweets for president trump's budget this year. president trump send congress 4.4 trillion spending plan, that features soaring deficits. steve: right. ainsley: if you look back at 2016 -- steve: the top two. ainsley: they tweet out, obama sends record $4.4 trillion spending plan to combat global warming. 2015, congress send budget plan to congress sending help for the middleç class. >> ap, cnn, abc, alphabet soup from the mainstream media. they cover this president very differently than cover the last president. we're frankly used to it. when you look at this president's budget it, outlines our priorities. it rebuildings the military. gives funding that this president has requested, that
5:38 am
secretary mattis and generals have requested to insure our national security. it funds priorities like helping our veterans, the opioid crisis. it make as down payment on our infrastructure plan to rebuild roads, bridges and airports. so it's a great plan but also has serious deficit reduction which the associated press ignores with those tweets. it has over $3 trillion lars in deficit reduction, which is the largest deficit reduction of a budget in terms of a 10-year outlay that we have ever seen. it lays down a path toward fiscal responsibility. it allows us to keep the booming economy growing. funds the priorities american people supported for. brian: federal government only pays 200 billion. meanwhile we know about what happened at the end of last week. kind of swamped good news you had beginning week, resignation of rob porter and speechwriter sorenson. what is going on behind the
5:39 am
scenes of fbi background checks that might change the staff this week? >> well again, the fbi background check process is one, that again the fbi runs. we are a part of it. it is operated throughout the federal government. it goes across agencies. it has been used frooç previous administrations, and will be used in future administrations. if any changes need to be made, we'll look at that, but, you know this is a process that we trust. brian: raj, did you change anything? you relied upon it and you got burned because you had two-time accused domestic abuser there at very sensitive position perhaps he shouldn't have been if that was fully exposed, so what changes now? >> i appreciate that point. but we also need to look at the process how it worked on historically. if changes need to be made and look at that, review the processes. we do trust the process. it has been used time and again for decade to protect our national security. we trust the fbi in these
5:40 am
processes. steve: raj, there is story out that somebody at fbi told somebody at the white house that this guy was a problem. do you know who that person might be? >> that is not accurate. the fbi would not give a background check investigation directly to senior white house officials t goes to a security office where then it is relayed, maybe up the chain, maybe not. but what we know about rob porter specifically and that is the incident that everybody is talking about, is that his background check investigation had not been completed yet. it was still, in the investigative process and had yet to be ajudicated. so prior to an ajudication, the white house is not going to step into the middle of a process and short-circuit it. these investigations are complex. they're lengthy for a reason. we need to get it right. ainsley: so, raj, a lot of people watching started out small businesses or want to do that. i know ivanka andç linda mcmahon, administrator of small business, oversees the
5:41 am
small business administration, the two ladies will sit down with a roundtable discussion with other small business owners, i guess to discuss what their need are, what needs to happen. can you tell us more about this? i know this will happen in pennsylvania i believe and president will be there next week? >> that's right. well, look, both ivanka trump and small business administrator linda mcmahon are great voices for small businesses and women-owned businesses. they have successful businesses. in the case of administrator mcmahon, built a business from scratch into a multibillion-dollar business. they have a great message to talk to folks around pennsylvania and around the country, about this president, our agenda of lowering taxes, cutting regulations will provide more opportunities in this robust economy for froing your small business, investing in the united states and having a federal government that stands with you. steve: all right. the president will go to cpac? >> that's right. brian: he is going to be busy. >> he is going to be busy. we want to send a message to

amid new questions about the clinton campaign, the obama white house as a bombshell memo claims the fbi opposition research came from clinton allies during the 2016ç electi. a lot, right? not for peter schweitzer. the author of the "clinton cash." nothing surprises him. he joins us now to weigh in. sidney blumenthal meets with steele, they go to jonathan weiner, assistant secretary of state i have a dossier for you to see? what is going on here, peter? >> yeah. you're right, brian, think when the story first broke about the steele dossier, it was a intelligence report that went to the fbi. we found out the clintons and the dnc funded this dossier. now we find out that there is additional material that was passed along by sidney blumenthal, a clinton partisan, a really political attack dog for them who was on the clinton foundation payroll. then of course you have the other example of the australian diplomat, you know, who claims that he was concerned about
5:48 am
something he heard from a, from a clinton, sorry, from a trump campaign volunteer, who was claiming they had russian dirt. that australian diplomat, mr. downer, was the one who was for the australian foreign ministry, running the clinton foundation program, as it related to aids. he actually signed all the documents. it is a bizarre situation, brian. every single aspect of this dossier, this story seems to lead back to the clintons. the clintons will say it is a, you know, a coincidence. i don't think it is. brian: by the way, blumenthal, blumenthal gets to have a conversation with weiner and gets to kerrey, weç don't know what kerry does with that. he has conversation with the palestinian leader, saying trump will be out of there soon. that is interesting. bring up the susan rice story. i can't make heads or tails of it. would you speculate with me? why would she chronicle a
5:49 am
january 5th meeting on inauguration day. the investigation has to go by the book? >> yeah. really, brian, the only reason you write a memo to yourself is you want to put something in the record. the only reason you want to put something in the record like this is because there is nothing in the record to back up this claim. so to me it is very, very troubling and suspicious that she would do this. remember, she has a history of, when it came to unmasking people, first she denied that heshe was involved in it. then she claimed it was only related to russian investigations. but then it came out some of the unmasking involved a meeting after the election that trump people had with a diplomat from the u.a.e. so her story is constantly changing. this is just further evidence that we need to drill down an investigation on this. brian: she has nine days to answer questions given to her by graham and grassley. not exactly fervent trumpites
5:50 am
that will do anything or the president. i think they're fair and balanced investigators. they are alarmed by what they see. peter, you are one of the few americans not because you called it a long time ago. peter, thank you so much. >> thanks, brian. brian: up next, the segment is brought to youç by the letter , "sesame street." elmo and grover are here to perform. we have sandra smith coming up at the top of the hour. >> good morning to yous. we're waiting the start of the worldwide threat hearing. top intelligence officials will testify before a senate committee. fbi and cia directors willethal both be there. as we learn a letter two senator point to unusual activity from president obama's former nsa advisor susan rice. we have senator john thune, congressman ron desantis, ambassador john bolton all joining us.
