the justice department releases the long awaited carter page fisa documents. >> the documents include an october 2016 application to wiretap page. >> many people in the so-called department of justice are continuing to do exactly what they shouldn't do. >> the great mystery is why the president has not spoken up for our country. the best way to deal with that is to vote in november. >> a hoes tanl situation in los angeles at a trader joe's grocery store. police saying the suspect has surrendered and is now in custody. the suspect fired several shots at officers. none of them were injured. >> a big thank you to the
bravbravery demonstrated by then and women who supported to this. >> you declared your support. ♪ ♪ >> well i don't know if you want us back this morning p but we're here. >> whether you like it or not. >> for the next four hours on sunday morning. good morning. >> good morning. before you go to church, don't get up, don't get dressed, stay with us. >> i'm good. here to be on a weekend with a lot of news from washington. >> how do you keep your big new york hair when we've got so much rain. >> i went for a rai a run in cel bark and my new york hair didn't even wilt. >> you ran six miles?
>> it's been 16 years since i ran six miles. >> he runs for all of us. >> you've done a lot of reading in the last 24 hours. >> hold it up for us. >> we have a 412-page top secret fisa document release i'm giving a lot of credit to fedex this morning. they fedex i.d. it on friday and it came in on saturday instead of monday. >> i'm seeing a lot of black lines. >> it was a light read. >> we are going to begin with a fox news alert. the department of justice releasing hundreds of heavily redacted fisa documents. >> reveal that the steele dossier that led to the warrant that led to surveillance leading up to the 2016 investigation. >> good morning. these documents show that the. coms on the dossier played a significant role in the fbi's justifications and the request
to wiretap carter page. in the initial foreign intelligence application submitted in october of 2016, the fbi stated it believes page has been the subject of targeted recruitment by the russian government to undermine and influence the outcome of the tweern u.s. presidential election in violation of u.s. criminal law. the documents include several renewal applications to extend surveillance of page. in late spring 2016 is significant. at that pint the fbi dumped christopher steele as a source. as the documents state, subsequently the fbi close source number one is an fbi source. while the renewal application doesn't indicate that the dossier was verified, the fbi said that steele was reliable based on his eaves work. carter page maintains he did nothing wrong. anwith this latest release of documents he tells fox news in a
statement i'm having trouble having any small bit of this document that rises above ignorance or sanity. house democrats have been quick to say these documents bolster their thought that the fbi had legitimate concerns. >> i have few things to say this morning. i have one thing to say. zoom in on camera one. source number one. christopher steele and the dossier were source number one for the fisa application. and the fbi admits that they were likely looking for information that could discredit candidate number one, donald trs candidate number one and hillary clinton was candidate number two on election night. source number one. you don't start with source number one unless that was the primary reason by which you sought the fisa application.
it's almost like what else do you need to know. i read the first 40 pages. griff, you read all 400. >> half of it is redacted. he's cheating. >> it was a quick read. >> tom fitten from judicial watch said judicial watch has carter page documents they're heavily redacted but it seems that the fbi and doj withheld the courts in withholding info. we were talking before the show started, griff, and you were saying both sides are trying to use this to their advantage. what is the argument from the republicans' side and what do the democrats say. >> the chairman of the house freedom caucus, mark meadows, he's saying about this potentially ground breaking development here, the carter page fisa documents should be classified and further unredacted protecting only sources and methods so the
americans can know the truth if they were funneling campaign research toward surveillance but you've also got nancy pelosi, right, house minority leading putting out a statement saying, despite president trump's repeated claims, these documents provide clear evidence of russia's coordination with carter page. let me tell you one development that garrett tinny was mentioning, source number one is the author of the dossier, clis mer steel and on page 318 it says that the fbi determined steele was no longer a reliable source but yet you still had the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein moving forward with making the argument that it should will be renewed. >> i want to look at 318. >> while there's a takeaway for
the republicans to make a case and democrat to point to carter page, this has new questions for rod rosenstein. this is going to, in layman's terms, going to become a little problem for him to answer to perhaps on monday. >> another hearing. get excited. how many of these we've had and how many questions people still have about where we are today and how it got to this point. this is all about the mueller investigation. these were the early stages of what led to ult i ultimately ths investigation. >> the only signature on this entire document is james comey, comey, mccake, clapper, susan rice, sally yates. i call it the deep state signature page, all big fans of then candidate trump. one thing i find in this document which is standard in fisa applications but meaningful in this context, these
authorities, the authorities that come from a fisa warrant may acquire owner foreign intelligence info. so maybe carter page was the nose under the tent to incident naincidentally surveil other people. that's in black and white. they didn't redact that one shockingly. this application wasn't just about carter page. it was about a lot more than carter page. >> what is the big picture on this. i am like, does this have an impact on where we are? is this going to lead to anything big? is this going to impact the russia, the mueller investigation? >> good point. listen. pull not the sheets back over your head. tune in, wake up. you don't have to get out of bed. but listen. it matters because it is the basis fundamental level, the methods through which we surveil people like carter page and the basis that has led to the
mueller investigation. and that is why pete is talking about source number one. and we're learning today a little more information. and transparency is what this should be about. >> yeah. >> i think you'll see a harder push for revealing some of the redactions. so much is redacted. an investigation that's gone on for 18 months that was based solely on the information contained within these documents. tom fitten gets quite a bit of kudos because it was through his foia request that the american people got to see this. >> i read like eight. it's redacted. >> i know that. you don't have to explain yourself. finish your thoughts on that at email@example.com sometimes we don't focus on the local races going on in this country. we talked yesterday about the democratic party and bigger picture, how extreme it has moved, talking about abolishing
i thrks abolishingi.c.e. and whe party today. in arizona second congressional district there was a debate and one of the candidate got booed a number of times for basically defending i.c.e. and saying some things that you might find pretty rational. listen to this. >> you would have declared your support for i.c.e. agents without any increased oversight. [ crowd booing ]. >> would you have supported democratic leadership in condemning ms. waters' comments? [ crowd booing ]. >> that's anne kirk patrick, a reasonable member of the democratic party, she's in a debate and asked would you support i.c.e. and should we
condemn maxine waters saying you should harass people who support trump. courageously she raised her hand. remember when president trump raised his hand? it takes courage to be the only one to raise your hand. sometimes it cuts for you in trump's case. i wonder in this case whether it will hurt her with the grass roots who have clearly moved left. >> it probably would. she doesn't lose her soul in all of this. she's probably telling herself it's not worth winning an election to give in to this. >> i think it's shocking that only one person on that panel thought that maxine waters is called to harass members of this administration or any administration shouldn't be condemned. i mean clearly that's just not the politics, the partisan politics that people want to continue. >> we didn't even get to hillary clinton in central park yesterday. >> we do have other headlines i want to bring you.
we start with a fox news alert. a woman is killed during a supermarket standoff. up to 50 people were inside a los angeles trader joe's when the terrifying siege began. >> i hear six more shots. i'm pretty that sure they were returning fire at him. >> then i saw people running toward the back of the store. i knew that something was wrong. >> people were running for their lives as others escaped through windows at trader joe's. an employee was spot dead inside. the three-hour standoff ended when the suspect walked off in handcuffs. you recall in the day he shot his girlfriend and grandmother who is now in critical condition. now to another fox news alert. the war on cops striking overnight. a florida officer shot during a gunfight. the fort myers cop in stable condition after emergency surgery. the suspect is in custody. in texas, a 32-year veteran of the dallas police department is killed while blocking traffic
during a funeral escort for a fellow officer. a suspected drunk driver is facing charges for hitting him. vice president mike pence giving a boost of support to gubernatorial candidate bryan bn camp. >> brian kemp is the real deal. he puts his family first. and when he becomes governor he'll always put georgia families first. >> the support coming ahead of tuesday's election against lieutenant governor kay sis kang l. the president endorsing kemp on twitter righting brian is strong on crime, love our military vets and the second amendment. he will be a great governor. these midterms are heating up. >> what that on tuesday. cagle was the front runner and the president taking a little different tack. we'll see how much his
endorsement matters. moving on, the lef our nextt worked for judge kavanaugh and has a message for the critics >> and a police officer goes the extra mile for a woman in his community. that's coming up. if yor crohn's symptoms are holding you back, and your current treatment hasn't worked well enough, it may be time for a change. ask your doctor about entyvio, the only biologic developed

i used to worry that they wanted to turn the clock back to the 1950s. now i worry they want to turn it back to the 1850s. >> judge kavanaugh poses a grave threat to women's health care. >> judge kavanaugh was hand picked. >> his views are outside the mainstream. >> another troubling aspect of judge kavanaugh. his views on presidential power. >> the democrats ramping up the fight against judge brett kavanaugh. now demanding access to as many as 1 million pages of documents from his time working with the bush administration. >> but senate joord leader mitch
mcconnell calling their bluff saying he's schedule the confirmation vote right before the midterm reactions. here to react, one of judge kavanaugh's former law clerks. great to have you with us. >> good morning. >> you know this man personally. talk to us about him and you say specifically he's been a champion for women. >> absolutely. i've heard the talking points that e with were hearing and there's no truth to them. as we heard in his opening remarks at the white house, his mother was a trail blaze ner the law. she was a prosecutor and a judge back when it was really tough, particularly tough for women to be in this profession. and her struggles really shaped him and we saw that in practice. for example, he's hired, over the last 12 years, more women than men. over half of his clerks have been women. one year he hired only women. from personal experience, as you said i've known him for 12
years, he was my first boss out of law school 11 years ago and since then remained the strongest advocate for my veers career. looking at his judicial opinions you see the same awareness of the challenges that women face np in one case a woman was badly beaten by her boyfriend and went on to commit crimes by her boyfriend. what the judge said was this woman could have felt compelled to commit the crimes because of the abuse she suffered. she wasn't under duress, there was no gun to her head, she could have felt that way because of the battered women syndrome. >> some important nuance there. as he faces the confirmation, not a single democratic senate has yet to meet with brett kavanaugh.
what are they missing, when he sits there and lays out his judicial fil philosophy to them, what are they missing ? >> 12 years, 300 opinions that havopinionsopinions thathave tog that's important to the american people. when you have democrats coming out from the get go saying we're not going to vote for him, it's striking. then couple that with what you said, some kind of request for an unprecedented number of documents, it's just a striking contrast there. and so what they're messin theya long history of laws that protect the american people and the american economy. two quick examples. in one case a large restaurant chain was trying to bring in cheaper level within he said, hs unlawful.
in seakd quick example when a foreign company tried to get rid of their made in china labels, he again said that was unfair to american consumers. if they want to know what products are made in america versus made in china, they have a right-to-buy american if they want. >> i love your perspective knowing him personally but also bringing up his mom. he spoke about her when he spoke to the country. it's an important perspective to have. thank you for being here this morning. let's hope they give him the bet of the doubt. >> maybe one democrat with meet with him. maybe one. >> not one? >> not one yet has met with him he's an convicted terrorist and admitted to helping al qaeda. why is a judge allowing him to stay in america. capitalism under attack. why don't the progressiv progret about our winning economy. that up next.

and lets you control your network with the xfi app. it's the ultimate wifi experience. xfinity xfi, simple, easy, awesome. good sunday morning. quiek headlines for you a convicted terrorist will be able to keep his u.s. citizenship. he lied on immigration papers to obtain citizenship in 1989 but there's no evidence of that. he admitted to scoping out the brooklyn bridge as part of an al qaeda plot to destroy it. set to be released from prison in 2020. a man convicted in 2004 has part of the painful jihad network using u.s. park to train for armed combat. the judge vacating the
conviction because of a change in how violent crimes are defined. well democratic socialism is on the rise in the u.s. case in point, new york congressional candidate cortez claims that captain tall lism is on the way out. listen. >> right now when we have this no holes barred wild west hyper capitalism. what that means is profit at any cost. capitalism has not always existed in the world and it will not always exist in the world. >> the future of the democratic party right there, the wild west of hyper capitalism. but while the progressive left continue to attack our capitalist society, our next guest has a warning about the perils of lifl living in a socit country, a man who fled a
communist country 230 years ago. the democratic socialists of america, their membership, was it at 5,000 in 2016 within it's at 45,000 in 2018. and the standard bearer of really the enthusiasm of the last election was bernie sanders who labeled himself a democratic socialist. let people know what is so dangerous about dabbling in this. >> when you talk about the democratic socialism, it's a misnomer. it doesn't exist. you can have established socialism without force. you need no force to do that. that is a con sition between capitalism and complete communism. and without the force you cannot establish some sort of democratic socialism that they're calling that. it is all command and control. the government wants to have complete command and control over the population and the means of production. that's what they're fighting for. >> absolutely. another stat we've got here is political views amongst u.s. millennials, six in ten
affiliated with the democratic party or lean in that direction. young people tend to be left-leaning. the ideas sound great on paper but ultimately america was founded on free people and free markets. you fled albania. what happened when command and control happens. >> pretty much the government is controlling your life or my life. i think the people should -- when arnold told us years ago that great civil la las civilizt socialists want is the constitution itself. the constitution, when the founded fathers established it, they wanted you and i to be free to have the liberty and prosperity and to pursue the dream that god gave us. >> not what the government gave us. >> not the government. if they grant us rights, they with remove the rights anytime they want. that's the slippery slope that we're taking here in the united
states. right here in the state of connecticut, for example, you have a socialist whose father was a member of the communist party running for governor and the hypocrisy is he used capitalism to make billions of dollars. on the other hand he wants your money and my money to force. >> because he thinks he knows better than you. you're dumb, he's smart. he's going to tell you what to do. ulultimately, where does this inevitably go and do democrats truly believe in socialism or are they trying to win elections by saying we'll give you more tree stuff. >> they believe in socialism. >> when they want to fund da fundamentally chanc transform -- constitution themselves, these people want to have unlimited powers. they want to make sure you and i have our rights limited. >> are they finally being honest?
are democrats sort of, now they're out and they're like, we always wanted collectivism, we wanted government control. now we're going to say it. >> look what happened in the bronx. you have a lady who attended boston university, completely hypocrite, moves to bronx new york, takes advantage and manipulates the people of the bronx to give her the nomination of congress by promising them free stuff. where is the free stuff coming frocomingfrom? >> she doesn't know what he's talking about it seems that the dogma that she learned in college lives loudly in here. >> that's where we're failing as a society. we're not educating our kids proarply. properly. we're not teaching them constitutionalism. the dangers of socialism. we're failing our kids by not doing that. th.>> the hidden hand of the market is difficult to
understand peter y, thank you for your tile. immigrants oftentimes give the best perspective. >> and there are hundreds and thousands of them out there to give you the same tori. >story. remember when peopled the flag outside of maxine waters' office? now the congresswoman says well, she understands. that's next plus, forget he or she and don't even call your kid a baby how dare you. now you should call them fabies. our parents panel here to weigh in on this gender bender coming up. ♪ how can we say when you book direct at choicehotels.com

12.25. but now you have new york here trying to get $15. this all started with senator bernie sanders, the socialist. we've seen so much about democratic socialism. he's part of the democratic socialist platform, $15. this is helpful? what would be impact on businesses if we had a $15 minimum wage? >> when you have $15 minimum wage mandated by the state or federal government, that cuts into the profit margin of the small business owner who is 65% of this economy. they are the largest employers in the nation. what results in that you're shichting from the money from the business owner who is barely scraping by and giving it over to the employee. result is that when the profits drop so far, the employers will close up shop, lay off employees or cut back hours. result is that you have only the
big giant companies surviving, like your costcos, car gets and walmarts. puts the small business owners out of business. >> we're almost out of time. correctly, you actually closed a business because of this sort of problem. >> i faced a number of challenges with people buying out of state, not paying sales tax. i saw a drop of 50% in my business. and my employees, i did profit sharing three years ago and had to stop because we were not getting above the line. ultimately as los angeles as california have raised minimum wage, it got to the point where it wasn't making sense wib was losing money each month and had to close the business. we have people unemployed right now still searching for work. >> thank you very much for joining us this sunday and we'll see what happens. the chant is fight for 15. it's going to be one neck of a midterm election season. thank you. >> thank you for having me. have you seen the video, comedian michelle wolf comparing

we are back with this. a new trend among millennial parents raising their kids without a gender identity. with no official research on how this impacts children as they get older, is this really a good idea? we've got our parent panel here to weigh in. joining me now were political scientist and democratic strategist jason nickels. my friends have been talking about this. this really seems to be a rising trend. norman, you're a doctor and you know the biological issues that we're dealing with. you say this is a child abuse? i am a psychologist and i will say that i wouldn't consider it child abuse but i would suggest
that aside from congenital abnormalities, not assigning a gender at birth is unfair to a child. it exowld create a tremendous amount of confusion. children are born more as an it, a massive undeveloped needs and urges. and usual the social and religious and cultural dynamics ultimately get involved, the child really needs somebody to teach them the way. little people need big people to teach them and show them the way to be. >> obviously the big job in a parents' life is to give them the tools they need to succeed. people are thinking this is giving them the freedom to decide what they want to be. but could it be harmful for babies to not give them an identity? >> it's a noble goal for parents to want to or to consider doing
this. my concern, there's not a lot of research on the impact. that's where the focus needs. the other thing is we live in a gendered society. when you choose this for your child, do they run the risk of entering a gender society and having to face that sort of confusion, are they going to be oz tra sized for this. this is real concerns that parents have to decide and make a choice for their kids. >> i've go got a 7-month-old ch. doesn't this totally change the way you raise a child? it makes it complicated. >> you're giving them more options. that's the important thing. and i have to disagree with some of what's been said by the other panelists. i think what this could avoid is gender disfoia. the idea that your gender and
sex have to map up. match up. one of the things that's happened in the past, is that people have chosen their gender ahead of time, they've had their genitals removed and later on they figure out this isn't what they wanted. this has been an important step. the one argument i've seen against it is bullying. and my thing is we need to teach our children not to be bullied regardless of the gender identity of the person that they are encountering. >> yeah, norman, i think it's one thing as kids grow up to figure out who and what they want to be and to accept that. but this trend with babies and really having no gender identify when they come out of the womb, is this going to be a trend that we see only increasing from here? where does this end? >> it might be a trend that's increasing and it's hard to tell where it's going to end. i would however suggest that parenting needs to involve appreciation of social learning
theory. children's development l needs as well as cultural religious norms and values. therefore these decisions cannot be made by a baby or by even a child. when they get to a certain age, perhaps latency age they can make a decision, i don't feel comfortable in my own body. at which point, psychologists, collegeclergy can be involved ie decision. >> thank you all for being with us this morning. really appreciate it. >> thank you. let us know what you think about that declassified and unredacted, the doj releasing hundreds of fisa documents. more on that coming up.
... i was on the fence about changing from a manual to an electric toothbrush. but my hygienist said going electric could lead to way cleaner teeth. she said, get the one inspired by dentists, with a round brush head. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's gentle rounded brush head removes more plaque along the gum line. for cleaner teeth and healthier gums.
and unlike sonicare, oral-b is the first electric toothbrush brand accepted by the ada for its effectiveness and safety. what an amazing clean! i'll only use an oral-b! oral-b. brush like a pro. if yor crohn's symptoms are holding you back, and your current treatment hasn't worked well enough, it may be time for a change. ask your doctor about entyvio, the only biologic developed

griff: requests have brought forth those. pete: get those pages hold it up for me. griff: well so we're going to get to the significant meat part of this, which is -- abby: you said the meat part of this? pete: show it to the people. griff: here you go so this page and then this page and then this page, and i was really on this page. pete: tell me more. griff: and then when i got here, and it goes on and on and on, but it is a significant development, it is a release and something that we have not seen before. pete: keep the pages in order, griff. griff: i have to. abby: no wonder when he said i was reading page 318, now it makes sense he only read about 10 pages that had writing on them. pete: so this is a fisa, we've been waiting to see anything of these fisa applications because they're highly classified and judicial watch did the hard work , they've been released highly redacted the president weighing in moments ago saying congratulations to judicial
watch on being successful in getting the carter page fisa documents of course this is all about surveiling carter page. as usual, and the trump campaign , as usual, heavily redacted but confirmed little doubt that the department of " justice" and fbi mislead the courts, a witch hunt rigged, a scam! and i read the first 40 pages which means i really read like seven because they were redacted what struck out to me was source number one which referred to throughout the document is -- abby: the dossier. pete: the dossier. christopher steele is source number one throughout this document in the information used to justify, not just surveillance of carter page but in the document it says the same authorities this warrant gives may also incidentally acquire other foreign intel information, so while we're surveiling carter page, maybe we find a bunch of other stuff and if we do we could use that too which is part of the speculation of why this
began in the first place. abby: what this comes down to you need evidence to get a fisa warrant to search someone. pete: correct. abby: the big question is what has that evidence been because the dossier and all that ultimately led to what is playing out now in this mueller investigation so the bigger picture is what evidence did they use to get to where we are today and that is why you've got a lot of republicans frustrated saying we still don't have all of the information, why is so much still redacted? we understand the fbi obviously you want to cover your sources and you want to keep closed how you do certain things but is that going to take-up that much room in the document? griff: well listen there's something here for everybody in the sense that republicans says we've got to see more. in the name of transparencies we feed to know more about it but then minority leader nancy pelosi is putting out a statement along with other democrats saying look this shows carter page should have been surveilled but one of the thin
things is a development and we'll have andrew mccarthy on a u.s. attorney who knows this stuff much better than i but one of the developments is that source number one was ultimately dismissed as a credible source because of disclosures he made but yet -- abby: christopher steele. griff: but yet deputy attorney general rod rosenstein still signed off. abby: the person who made the dossier was discredited. griff: correct. abby: but the documents were still moved forward as being credible. pete: and as andy mccarthy will point out i talked to him in the green room, it's fascinating because he's read through this whole thing. it's not just the first fisa application you have there. it's the renewal and the renewal of it and he said what's really interesting is why and how it could have been renewed in light of the fact that the source number one had been discredited and they are relying on other sources and another question is
-- griff: one thing is the pages we were holding up, the blank blank blank blank these are the subsequent pages that follow immediately after we learn that source number one has been dismissed and that is why -- pete: interesting. griff: andrew mccarthy will point out we've got to know more pete: interesting one other thing i want to point out deputy attorney general oh, something to think about he signed off on this document certifying the document certifying the facts as truthful and certifying the fbi investigation is lawful, so if he's overseeing the mueller investigation, is he not conflicted? rosenstein a part of this that we now know is so based on source number one dossier how could he be giving an honest look into so-called russian collusion a lot of questions. abby: there's going to be a hearing tomorrow. griff: well we'll see, listen. abby: there will be at some point especially after this came out because people will want to understand why they're not getting more information and to your point that very question of why you discredited christopher
steele and why you kept moving forward with those documents. pete: attorney general jeff sessions recused himself. how is rod rosenstein still in charge of this investigation? griff: bottom line, we'll know more tomorrow. abby: send us your thoughts on this but you don't want to go anywhere because 7:15 is a great interview. good perspective. pete: very interesting. abby: other news going on. have you guys been to comic-con? pete: i've never been. abby: i have. it is fascinating. pete: the guy who used to host the weekend show here, he lived for comic-con. i love the guy, and it's all about comics and cartoons and super heros. abby: like power rangers. pete: fantasy land and stuff like that. it's all about stuff that kids and adults and people who want to think about. abby: but they also do political panels. pete: oh, do they? abby: well they do panels and they have conversations in their own world that they live in. griff: [laughter] abby: but there is like a political panel at comic-con and
it got a little bit out of control it talked about impeaching trump with magic. pete: actorring were asked if they could use magic for good in real life what would they do? you should read it i don't know who these people are. go ahead. abby: the one on the left there saying impeach trump and i don't even understand half of this, but i guess -- pete: it's like harry potter like if i could use my powers, we would impeach trump. you can't even go to a comic -- griff: it's wizard speak. abby: this is a tweet, a fantastic beast says they would use real life magic to impeach trump, joke about impeachment spells. griff: [laughter] abby: you have to imagine at comic-con you've got a mix of people and i'm sure a number of people that did come out and vote for donald trump and feel about where the country is.
pete: guy behind me speaks for all of us. [laughter] guy behind me is the guy watching the nfl. griff: he cares about harry potter. pete: i want to watch your movie s i can't even go to comic-con, guy behind me is like i'm done, come on. griff: [laughter] pete: talk about like the avengers? abby: when you start politiciz ing comic-con, there's no place that's safe. there's no place that's not political. griff: this is the impeach trump ride at disneyland. abby: and except for the ride. who did you vote for? pete: [laughter] abby: no ride for you griff. griff: nope. pete: email@example.com. e-mail us. if you were the guy behind what would you say about the fact that now, even comic book conventions have turned political? abby: unbelievable. pete: i bet it's like half republicans and half democrats. what would harry potter say griff? fill in our brains.
abby: we've got a lot of news coming to our news room i do want to bring you headlines starting on a serious news alert , a woman is killed during a supermarket standoff up to 50 people inside a los angeles trader joes when it began. >> i hear about six more shots i'm pretty sure they were returning fire at him, just a scary moment. >> and then i saw people just running towards the back of the store so i knew something went wrong. abby: people were running for their lives as others escaped through windows a trader joe's employee was shot dead inside. the three hour standoff ended when the suspect walked out in handcuffs earlier in the day the suspect shot his girlfriend and grandmother who are in critical condition. and you are looking at a step of a man right now on your screen, police believe killed george h. w. bush's former cardiologist. dr. mark house gunned down after he rode his bicycle to work at
houston methodist hospital. witnesses describe the suspect as a man about five foot 10 with a slender build. police are looking into whether it was a targeted attack. we'll keep a close eye on that story. also this intel leader dan coats says he meant no disrespect after facing criticism for saying this. >> that vladimir putin is coming to the white house in the fall. >> say this again? >> [laughter] abby: the director of national intelligence issuing a statement reading this, in part my awkward response was in no way meant to be disrespectful or criticize the actions of the president. coating adding he and the intelligence community are focused on supporting president trump's efforts so you heard it there and happy birthday to prince george, britain's prince william and catastrophe middleton sharing a new picture of their oldest child as he turns five years old today the royal family thanking all of the twitter followers for the lovely messages. the smiling little royal is third in line to the throne.
griff: looking good. pete: true you talked about the dni, the current, the dni under obama, i'm reading through this document, he said, "russia has tried to influence u.s. elections since the 1960s during the colder war a tradition with russia interfering with elections, their own and ours, that was james clapper." griff: we just told you about the doj releasing the carter page fisa documents, former u.s. attorney andrew mccarthy says it confirms what he's been saying for a year and fortunately for you he joins us live next. pete: very interesting and hillary clinton is back talking trash and taking aim at the president. >> the great mystery is why the president has not spoken up for our country. ill.

pete: welcome back well the doj releasing more than 400 pages of fisa documents, although heavily redacted they do reveal that the anti-trump dossier was not just a major factor it was source number one in the warrants for surveillance of former trump campaign advise or, carter page. abby: here to react fox news contributor and former federal prosecutor andrew mccarthy. we are really looking forward to hearing your perspective. what is your takeaway? >> i'm really embarrassed because i told people for months that this could never ever happen. what i told people was that you're not even going to hear about the dossier when we final ly learn what's in the fisa warrants but what the fbi will do is what the fbi always does, which is they'll take seven or eight facts that are important, they'll scrub them so that the fbi can verify them and those
will be put into the affidavit that'll be the only thing you'll hear about. when you read this thing it's astonishing. it's as if they took the dossier and slapped district court caption on it and gave it to the judge which is exactly what i told people would never happen. griff: there is the nugget. you found a nugget which i did not but that's because only you can find this, what have you found? >> actually, i must say this is so bad that they ought to be looking at the judges who signed off on this stuff not just the people who gave it, and it doesn't take, if you've done this stuff it doesn't take, this is so bad it extremes out of you but this says this is just three lines, three and a half lines. pete: page 58. >> 53. the fbi has reviewed this verified application for accuracy in accordance with its procedures. they haven't verified it and it's not accurate, so the most, the two most important things, three and a half lines they
can't even get that right. griff: that says that so our viewers some of them maybe just waking up is suggesting that they verified as accurate and factual the dossier for which we know has so many holes and that is source number one. >> right. what they're saying is the assertions we're making to the court we verify. now, just to explain how this works. let's say forget about fisa and intelligence. let's say it's a drug case and i want a warrant because i think they're selling or making heroin packages in a house, right? so i bring my agent to the judge and i say we need a search warrant and the judge says fine what's your probable cause and i say judge? i have this great agent here. every year he wins agent of the year. he is like the best agent. he's got the most awards. the judge will look at me and say but what's the probable cause? what did the people see and who are the people who saw it and why should i believe it?
pete: if you brought media reports would they count? >> well i would have to bring media reports if i didn't have anything else because what they did hear was they had this guy steele who helped them in another case, and they don't have any idea who his sources are, his sources are unidentified. they're russian, and they themselves are operating on here say information so for the most part, even his sources are not claiming that they saw and heard the things that they're asking the judge to rely on, but the government isn't even bringing the sources to them. they're bringing steele. griff: and this is accurate let me just point out that on page 54, we have the signature for verification, we'll try and get it for you it's page 54 and it says i declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing information regarding carter page is true and correct and the verification is fbi but that is as you can see redacted.
do you believe this morning, andrew, that this agent should be at least behind closed doors interviewed as to why he would verify something that is now known to not be fully accurate? >> i'm betting number one, he probably has been interviewed already. i don't know why they redact the name of the apts since the names of the judges are unredacted why the agents should not be or should be redacted i don't know and what i'm sure they would tell you is what i meant when i said it was true and accurate is that this really is what steele told us. that isn't what you need to know what you need to know is why should the judge believe what steele represented his sources. pete: and you said multiple times it was renewed because of media reports. >> well if you look at it pete, they keep going back every three months the warrant looks exactly the same. now you pointed out griff there's all kinds of redacted stuff so we don't know what more they added but it looks to me like they just kept bringing back the same stuff including
the article. griff: we've got to leave it there. we're out of time. pete: thank you for getting up early. great stuff. feabby: more fox & friends after this. show me minivans with no reported accidents. boom. love it.

joe jones a retired u.s. marine corps bomb technician who lost his legs in a bomb blast in afghanistan while fighting many of those very same islamic terrorists joey, good morning. so when you see a video like this, you fought folks whether it's al qaeda or isis who have those views of our world, yet this so-called comedian makes a comparison to law enforcement in our country how does it stick with you? >> well, michelle wolf has reached that point in the comedian's career where you go from overnight sensation with cheap shots at sarah sanders to literally recycling old material you know, what was outrageous when snl pairity isis as they were burning people alive years ago and it's sad michelle wolf is trying to recycle the same stuff and attacking honorable men and women while doing so. the realize ronnie. abby: what would you say if you sat across the table from michelle wolf what would you say to her about isis? help her understand and help people understand how dangerous
isis actually is and how absurd this comparison is. >> well quite honestly if you're living in this country today and you have social media and news media in front of you and you don't understand the severity of isis i can't help you. if you've not seen the videos of people being burned alive i can't explain it to you any better. yeah i lost my legs but more importantly a lot of people lost their lives fighting this war in the last 10-15 years but beyond that the realize ronnie is that she's attacking i.c.e. we're talking about border patrol and i.c.e. organizations made from veterans that are i believe at least 50% hispanic so to say that these organizations are stupid or wrong, they've been called monsters and a terrorist organization. i shared with your producers a good friend of mine that was a border patrol agent after serving as an army special forces operator in iraq and afghanistan. vince is now out in hollywood working on new shows but before any of that he worked as a border patrol agent and on this
picture that he shared he showed this girl was sitting across the river with nothing more than a note and vince greeted her with a hug and greeted her with compassion and a lot of these people, a lot of these un accompanied children that's the first sign of compassion they get from this country is someone like vince bringing them into custody keeping them safe and to paint them as anything other than heros is absolutely malpractice. the truth of it is theres one culprit in situations like this when kids are in cages called the government. but that culprit exists in the v a, that corporate exists at the irs. that culprit exists at the fbi right now. the one thing the republicans don't do is they don't call them an espionage agency or call them counter to a democratic system agency. we say first and foremost that the majority of people at the fbi are heros that love this country. pete: it's a great point. >> if we could get that same act of respect for i.c.e. that would be an amazing point. pete: great point you don't have to call them a terrorist organization which is exactly
what the left does, it's a great point. so many of these men and women who serve in i.c.e. were former veterans former law enforcement many are minorities or hispanic, so when you call them isis you're calling them the enemy. abby: yeah so well said joey jones this is why we have you on a great great perspective. always good to see you. pete: thank you, sir. abby: have a great sunday. pete: well is there an in urgency growing a socialistic one in the democratic party? the new york times says there is and it's going to shift it even further left. good for them, david bossie and anthony scaramucci are here to react live coming up next. abby: and high rent no problem, camella harris says the federal government should help. more on that. >> ♪ ♪ greatness of an suv? is it to carry cargo...

on water's world jessie waters and anthony scaramucci took on the national beer pong champs. now we showed you all of their highlights literally. i think the beer pong champs went on to smoke them. i want to bring in anthony scaramucci former white house deputy, anthony come on we showed best we could but you guys kind of got smoked last night. >> we absolutely got destroyed, but that's all i have to say. pete: a lot of trying with distractions. abby: you really talked the game and had a lot of confidence all that matters. griff: listen you guys played beer pong in new york. >> the only thing i have is like psychological warfare, guys griff: dave bossie and i played fisa documents in d.c. we have to take a hard turn to the fact that we now have these 400 pages, gentlemen we just had andrew mccarthy, u.s. attorney
on and fox news contributor who walked us through a little bit of it and one of the fascinating parts of it to summarize particularly for you who are just waking up we've learned that the steele dossier was a major component for the warrant that's what's now become the mueller investigation. andrew mccarthy says that the fbi on page 53 says that it was verified and we know that obviously isn't true. gentlemen i'll start with you dave, what do you make of this release and what we're learning? >> well, let's cover a cup of things. one is this looks like about 90% redacted but what we are finding out is exactly what you just said which is the steele dossier was the basis for this entire case, this entire investigation which calls it. look the hillary clinton paid for the steele dossier. we now understand through this release that that was the major component to getting the fisa warrant to collect data, to collect information on our campaign. it's outrageous. what i will also say is that we
now understand why the department of justice is fighting congress for the releasing the documents to congress. they must must turn over the rest of these documents this week or the president should declassify them. this is outrageous and i think we're getting to the bottom of it. pete: anthony how are trump supporters going to read this folks waking up this morning saying dossier used number one as evidence what does it tell me about this investigation? >> well, i think it definitely has hardened them in their support. there's a reason why 90% of the republican party is behind the president, but in addition what david schweikert saying just think about we always talk about the cover up being worse than the crime. the justice department will be so much better served right now if they just admit this thing is a catastrophe, pullback and go into full retreat so they're not going to do that but yet they've constantly attacked us on the
campaign about different things like this so the hipocracy is inside of washington and this is very very good for the president going into the mid-terms. i predict that this stuff starts to come out his popularity will rise and so will the people that he's supporting in the mid-terms griff: dave let me quickly ask you because you're saying that the president should declassify the receipt of it if it's not forthcoming but with regards to deputy attorney general rod rosenstein what we've learned is that source number one christopher steele was discredit ed as a source. do you believe that this raises questions for rod rosenstein and do those questions do they rise to the level of recusal? >> it's very troubling. it's very troubling to see him signing on to this fisa warrant. i'll be honest with you, i think that what jeff sessions did, there's no comparison here. he met a russian ambassador at a reception and recused himself. rod rosenstein must recuse himself and it calls into
question his judgment as somebody who is fighting congress for the release of these documents. now, we understand through this redaction or through this release of documents that he actually signed the document to allow the fisa warrant. i don't understand how he could oversee this and now i understand and it calls into question the judgment at the top levels of the department of justice and fbi we see why all these agents strzok and page and others were hating this president and doing whatever it could, using the steele dossier as the underlying evidence to get these fake fisa warrants and it's just devastating to this country what they have done. abby: yeah we're not talking about low level employees. it's a fascinating that it continues to go back to the highest levels within the doj at the fbi. you mentioned hillary clinton earlier, david and anthony i want your take on this. she was out and about last night in new york city at ozzie fest and she took the time to talk about politics as she often does , and attack the president, president trump, for his handl
ing of the russia summit last week. here is what she said about that >> why the president has not spoken up for our country and we saw that most clearly in this recent meeting with putin. we don't know what was said in the room just the two of them. abby: my reaction to that is i think we all remember that moment where she physically held up that reset button, remember with the foreign minister of russia to reset the relationship between the united states and russia, back when she was secretary of state. much of where we are today is because our inability to get it right with russia, all the years leading up to where we are now so isn't she in part to blame for where we are right now? >> well she certainly has the blame but i think the bigger thing here is she's running for president so it's just obvious to me she's going to do
everything she can to get herself inserted into the 2020 race and i'll tell you what she'll probably run for president in 2060 she does not want to leave the earth or be in the beyond not being the president of the united states, so it's just very very interesting that she's not going to give up in any way, shape or form. now i personally sort of admire that even though i don't like her policies that she's that relentless but if you're saying she's hypocritical about the russian situation and our ability to get along with the russians of course she is, abbey and that's the biggest problem in politics and that's why the american people are so frustrated and so many of them are supporting the president's mission to try to reduce tensions with russia. pete: david ursino were the deputy campaign manager on the campaign that beat hillary clinton. please give us your commentary on that but also the front page of this mornings failing new york times talk about how the democrats are bracing for moving even further to the left. what does that preview for what
the democratic party might be and who their nominee might be? >> hillary clinton is really doing a lot of damage to herself and to this country. al gore, when he lost, could have easily for the next year or two, put himself in a position against president bush and tried to attack his policies, and said that he won the election when he didn't, and this is what hillary clinton is doing. she's doing great damage to our democracy and we have to take it seriously. she is so angry and hate-filled that she lost this election fair and square to our great president that she can not get over and its been nearly 19 months or 20 months since the election. she clearly is not over it and look, the obama administration did everything politically it could to try and stop this president and that's why there needs to be more hearings about that but to go to the mid-terms, the democrats continue to go to the left. they continue to nominate the
wild-side crazy liberal left in race after race across the country and i welcome that with open arms because it's going to show this november when you have republicans who are saying we're going to be for law and order and support the men and women of i.c.e. and border patrol, cutting your taxes, trying to build a wall and be for security at home and abroad against the left. it is going to be a clear picture and i think the american people are going to reward us for it. griff: i just want to end where we began and that is a little d.c. new york rivalry. pete and anthony versus griff and dave, beer pong. pete: any time i'll take the mooch on my team. >> i'll be practicing for the next six months. abby: good to see you both have a great day. pete: you got it. abby: out to rick richmuth for a little weather. it was raining all night but seems like a little damp. rick: big storms and flooding went through parts of the mid atlantic around the d.c. area around baltimore some spots

vice president biden did nothing while he was a u.s. senator or while he was the vice president of the united states to change these laws. what president trump is doing is he's enforcing the laws, trying to keep the people of the united states safe and to come out and say that it's the darkest day in american history, frankly, it's disgusting to see somebody say that. griff: you say it's disgusting but is this, brandon, just simply, a preview of mid-term and maybe even 2020 politics, biden's name obviously on a short list because he's speaking to the largest group of immigrants rights groups, the league of united american citizens and they protested the texas border patrol processing isn'ter that i went to created under president obama and vice president biden. well again if you look at what the left accuses president trump of doing, they constantly accuse him of playing to his bait when in reality, what's happening, is
you have all of these leftists that are playing to there's trying to position themselves to make a run in 2020 trying to position the democrat to take over the house and the senate, and frankly, what we have to do and what i hope that the republicans are looking at and seeing, the voters out there is i hope they're seeing this is the attempt they're making and i hope the republicans turn out to vote. griff: brandon i want to quickly ask you too we've seen all this past week the condemnation of i.c.e. agents i.c.e. works hand in hand in risking their lives to secure the border, does it trouble you what you're hearing about not supporting i.c.e. agents? >> well griff, if you look at it, you have done an awful lot of reporting on this specific issue. you know better than most that the border patrol is the one law enforcement in the entire nation that has more minorities than it does whites and if this was about race, if president trump was a racist, if he was
homophobic we wouldn't have the leader that we have in the border patrol right now. we wouldn't have all of the minorities that we have in the border patrol and this president clearly supports this agency. it has nothing to do with race. it has everything to do with the rule of law saying that these are the laws that congress passed including joe biden and these are the laws that we have to enforce and if we don't enforce those laws we just don't have a country. griff: brandon jud thank you very much for joining us today. thank you, griff. griff: more proof of just how far left the democratic party is shifting a liberal congressional candidate repeatedly gets booes because she showed support for i.c.e. we'll show you the video from the outrageous debate and we're getting a look at artifacts that are over 2,000 years old you'll see them our next guest shares how they exposed the truth. >> ♪ ♪

educational scientific and cultural organization that denied the jewish and also the christian connection to jerusalem and they condemn the archaeology and you might wonder why would the united nations care about archaeology except the excavations taking place most notably in the city of david are affirming not as a matter of faith but as a matter of fact the jewish people to the jerusalem. pete: even the supreme muslim council in 1924 pointed out that of course jews have a historic connection. >> absolutely and it's beyond dispute. universal belief the connection and we have over here ash from the destruction of the temple removed in the late 90s this is real ash found on the temple mount which affirms the destruction of jerusalem by the romans. pete: incredibly interesting stuff i know its changed my perspective and life and understanding of that region and history really can prove the recent. >> absolutely thanks so much. thank you. pete: all right, well up next, declassified and unredacted the

what i have to say. less 6% of our audience, including myself, will not be running six miles to.ay abby: we included. i agree with that. but we're here and we're watching television because there's a lot of news going. we turn to our top story of the morning. the department of justice releas releasing hundreds of fisa documents. griff: the 400 plus heavily redacted pages reveal the in infamous dossier leading up to the 2016 election. griff: garrett here with the gritty details. >> some of the most heavily redacted pages in this document are those that have the details of the f.b.i.'s justification to wiretap former trump campaign adviser carter page. one thing clear in the unredacted sections is the steeled paid a significant role in the initial foreign intelligence surveillance application which was submitted in october 2016. the f.b.i. stated, quote, "it believes page had been the
subject of targeted recruitment by the russian government to undermine and influence the outcome of the 2016 u.s. presidential election, in violation of u.s. criminal law." the documents also include several renewal applications to extend surveillance of page. in the last renewal in late spring 2017 is significant, because at that point the f.b.i. had dumped christopher steele as a source after he misled them over his media contacts. as the documents state, subsequently the f.b.i. released source number 1 as an f.b.i. source. despite that the f.b.i. said that steele was still reliable based on his previous work though the visible sections of the renewal application don't indicate the dossier was verified. carter page has said all along that he did nothing wrong and was never a spy for russia, and last night he told fox news, quote, "i'm having trouble finding any small bit of this document that rises above complete ignorance and or insanity." this morning, president trump also weighed in on the documents tweeting in part, "as usual,
they are ridiculously heavily redacted but confirm with little doubt that the justice department -- department of justice and the f.b.i. misled the courts. mitch hunt, rigged, a scam." in march, reports of these documents prompted the justice department's inspector general to launch an investigation into potential fisa abuses, and that review is ongoing. abby, pete, and griff. abby: garrett tunney live for us us. only more questions are raised this morning, griff. pete: so, griff, you read all 400 pages and i was impressed. and abby reminded me it's not that impressive when you consider how much is redacted. abby: there are about ten pages you can actually read in it. griff: that's why you've got the chairman of the house freedom caucus, mark meadows, right, who's been a leading voice on all this stuff, saying -- if we'll just put his tweet up here he's saying "potentially groundbreaking development here here," this carter fisa doc should be declassified so americans can know the truth if
the previous administration was funneling campaign research toward surveillance, we need to know. pete: we need to know. as much as was detracted, we learn a lot from this too and it stuck out to me as i was reading it this morning. i'm going to hold it up every hour and it's worth holding up. source number 1 in this document was the christopher steele dossier, not just a source, or one of. source number 1 was the un unverified, salacious, dirty dossier paid for by democrats as a hit piece against trump. they allude to the fact that, you know, looking -- that the document was looking for a ainformation that could discredit candidate number 1, who's donald trump in the document. the other thing that stuck out at me -- and again, you could read any page and find something of interest. but these same authorities given with the fisa application means that incidentally they could have been acquiring information on other members, which leads to believe carter page was just the foot, just the nose under the tent to survival the trump campaign and find out what they could. abby: a number of people are fired up this morning after getting this document. andrea mccarthy is one of those, a former u.s. attorney for new
york's southern district and he was on less than an hour ago and he talked about the folks that signed off on this, including james comey who obviously is no longer there, but the judges as well. here's what he had to say about that. >> i'm really embarrassed, because i told people for months that this could never, ever happen. what i told people was that you're not even going to hear about the dossier when we finally learn what's in the fisa warrants. when you read this thing, it's astonishing. they actually -- it's as if they took the dossier and slapped whole cloth caption on it and gave it to the judge, which i must say, i mean, this is so bad that they ought to be looking at the judges who signed off on this stuff, not just the people who gave it. griff: now, to give a little context here, the reason why andy is saying the judges should be looked at is because we see on page 53, as he pointed out, a line here that says, "the f.b.i. has reviewed this verified application for accuracy." and, as you point out, source
number 1, the steele dossier, christopher steele was ultimately dismissed as source number 1 -- abby: discredited. griff: -- and the dossier is in no way was it ever verified. and so the judges, judges collier and i forget the other one's name, they're out there, they're known. you know, there's certainly questions for them, as andy points out. abby: let me get this right. christopher steele, who put together this dossier, he was deemed discredited, but then the dossier put together was used as evidence to ultimately get this fisa warrant. pete: exactly and to get it re reapproved twice. and andy mccarthy also pointing out that it was open source news reports that helped get them continued reapplications of the fisa. if they had evidence, that should have been used to get re reapproval of the -- griff: and he blasted that as well. take a listen. >> what they did here was they had this guy, steele, who helped them in another case. and they don't have any idea who his sources are. his sources are unidentified. they're russians.
and they themselves are operating on hearsay information information. so for the most part, even his sources are not claiming that they saw and heard the things that they're asking the judge to rely.ng pete: you think so comey briefly griff. as i was reading this, i couldn't get past what i'm calling the deep state signature page, he never who would have have sign off on this. the only signature is james comey, but it has to go through john kerry, andy mccabe, susan rice, clapper, all people who wanted hillary clinton to win loathe this president and as a result how can you trust in good faith what they were seeking was just information on carter page to see if he was working with russians or whether or not they had a desire to find out if donald trump -- griff: don't forget one of the signatures is rod rosenstein, deputy attorney general, and as andy pointed out in that -- garrett tunney pointed out, i'm
sure it will be something to do with this story because there's real questions now, david bossie calling for rosenstein to recuse himself as to why do you still sign and move forward this warrant? pete: and how do you still get to oversee the mueller investigation when you're that conflicted? you've been part of the poison source of it yet you're still there? sessions recuse himself yet rosenstein stays and oversees it it? abby: you mentioned the mueller probe, by the way, if you're trying to follow this, because it does get in the weeds and is complicated, but all of this evidence has ultimately led to this mueller investigation into the handling of the russia probe and, you know, trump's relationship with russia and everything that's going on right now all goes back to these documents and ultimately the evidence that was used to survey -- to surveil people on the trump campaign. so a lot of big, big questions remain, including rod rosenstein who may very well have to sit down at a hearing and answer
these questions, because i think there are a lot of people in this country -- griff: that's right. so it's based on bunk. pete: it's pretty hard to believe that the investigation is anything other than bunk. griff: don't forget that the steele dossier was commissioned and paid for by the d.n.c. by hillary clinton. in this report, fox news believes that glenn simpson, who ran gps -- and i really don't want to get people lost in the weeds -- but we're basically talking about the main source that goes back to something, a document that was paid for by the d.n.c. -- abby: but that was left out of it, depress. that's what judicial watch is reporting. when they gave over their evidence to the courts, they left out the involvement of hillary clinton and the d.n.c. when as you're saying, that is a huge part of this, right? that brings up the politics in all of this. and when you're dealing with the f.b.i. and the d.o.j., politics should never be part of that decision-making, part of the proc.ss pete: amen. you know, we had two other topics we were going to talk about during this. abby: we didn't get there. pete: you know why? because we're just as fascinated
by this. if we'd spent 19 months being bombarded with russia, russia, aurora trying to discredit this president, you finally get access to 400 pages of fisa application, you want to know what they based it on, and now we k.ow abby: it's still so redacted, right? so i think there's still going to be a lot of questions of -- if it's really just trying to hide your sources and hide your methods, is it going to take up all that room in the report? griff: listen. stay tuned. there's a whole lot more coming on this not just today, but in the days and weeks to come. abby: you'll be on it, griff. i know that. more news. fox news alert, a serious one. a woman is killed during a supermarket standoff. up to 50 people were inside a los angeles trader joe's when the terrifying siege began. >> i hear about six more shots. pretty sure they were firing at him. scary moment. >> then i saw people running towards the back of the store, so i knew something was wrong. abby: people were running for their lives as others escaped
through windows. a trader joe's employee was shot dead inside of that trader joe's joe's. the three hour standoff ended when the suspect walked out in handcuffs, you can see right there. earlier in the day the suspect shot his girlfriend and his grandmother, who are in critical condition. and there's this. we know now that the doomed -- winds reaching 73 miles per hour waves 73 feet high when the tourist boat capsized near branson missouri. questions are being asked why they changed directions. a boost of support georgia's gubernatorial candidate brian kemp. >> brian kemp is the real deal. he puts his family first. and when brian kemp becomes governor, he'll always put georgia families first. abby: the support coming ahead of tuesday's election against

out to you. i know you're dealing with a lot lot. he was someone you worked with for a very long time and a very good friend of yours. our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family and everyone who knew this man. tell us about this man. who was he? >> well, he and i started practice at exactly same time. i won't quite tell you how many years ago, but it's more than 30 30. we sort of grew up together. our kids grew up together. he was an amazing colleague, and he's a close personal friend. abby: yeah. and it's something you never -- >> i think in many ways he was a role model. abby: when you listen to george h. w. bush talk about, he was his cardiologist, he talks about him not just as a great doctor but as a good man, he talks about him as a great friend and as you said just a good role model in life. this is something that you never think could happen to you or someone that you care for, just in broad daylight in the morning

'cause we had, you know, prepared this for a long time.
and i'm like, "i have the bags ready. should i go to the hospital?" says, "no, it's okay. just -- it's going to take about three days, maybe a week or so. just go home, relax, take it easy, go take a bath." and so we're look, "okay." so we went on our merry way, went home and went about our day day. and about seven o'clock or so that evening, the contractions started to get stronger, and i just kind of like -- i think i was in denial a little bit about that it was happening 'cause i just, you know, was going with what the doctor had told me. so i was like, "honey, i think it's time. i think we should start, you know, heading for the hospital." >>how did you end up in the chick-fil-a? abby: you had the chick-fil-a cowhand .ou pete: how did you hand there? >> oh, my gosh. you tell. >> so the hospital, there's a specific hospital. we live out in the country. we live in hill country, texas, so the hospital is 45 miles from our house.
so when she says, you know, i think we should go, we were totally prepared. the car had been packed for a month. there's not a hospital between us and the hospital we were intending to go to. it's not like we drove by 17 hospitals. the reason why we picked chick-fil-a is one of our friends in town was going to watch our older girls, -- they're 6 and 9 -- so that we could just go straight to the hospital from there. it was very convenient, right off the highway, quick, just jump out in the parking lot, hand off the kids and away we go go. and -- >> when we were in the pelt, i thought, "hey, this might be an opportunity to use the restroom. i really have to go." and my contractions again were just severe. and i was in excruciating pain, and i realized it was the only lit up store in the parking lot, and i thought, "let's just see if they'll open the door for me me." so waddling my way through, here we were. abby: they let you in? >> i'm like, let me in, let me
in! and for all they knew some lunatic at the door, banging on the door, but then they saw me, and i was, you know, full-on pregnant. and so they graciously let us in and i -- i made my way -- abby: and then robert, you ended up having to step in. i can't imagine you have delivered a baby for in your life. you've been in the room, i'm sure, when your other kids were born, but you had to step in and help deliver this baby, to which you then had to wrap her, take the shirt off your back. tell us what was going through your mind and what you were doing in this moment. >> well, by the time she had made it into the bathroom, i was putting our kids into our friends's car and kissing them good night then i heard who turned out to be the night manager at the chick-fil-a say, hey, your wife's in the bathroom and she's screaming, so i ran in there, and we got the door unlocked, and -- >> and i'm standing -- >> she was standing. she was standing. and that's how we delivered the baby was standing up.
>> yeah, i was straddling the toilet, and my water literally had broken -- >> as i walked in. i looked around, and she was just barrel, barrel crowning, and i said, "baby, we're going to do do something greatly but we're going to do it right here and we're going to do it right now." >> i was like, "okay. okay." and i was just like of course my body was in, like, such a severe shock at the moment, i don't know how women do this every day day. >> she stood up the whole time. >> i stood up the whole time. i'm holding -- at one point with my right hand holding her head in, making sure that i was not going to drop her into the toilet. i was so concerned about dropping her. abby: of course. >> of course he was behind me, and not only was he an amazing coach through it all, he was so supportive, he was also, of course, -- he took a role of husband, coach, nurse, doctor,
and i can't even imagine what i would have done if it was just me. there was no way that i could have brought a baby into the world by myself. >> one other thing, too, guys is that after a little couple things with the cord being wrapped around her neck a couple of times -- >> there were some serious moments. >> and chick-fil-a staff, they were just amazing. griff: robert, let me just 'cause we're almost out of time, chick-fil-a's given you guys chicken for life and given you some gifts? abby: and a job. >> yeah. that's by the husband and a wife that owned that store. that's not from chick-fil-a corporate, which they're amazing amazing. the company is just amazing, but this is all very local. but the chick-fil-a for life, and they've guaranteed her a job they gave her a certificate of a job when she turns 14 or 16. it's all from the owners of that store right here in our little hill country town. abby: robert, fallon, we are just so glad that mommy and baby
are doing great. she is set for life. she's beautiful. thank you very m.ch pete: thank you so much. >> thank you so much. pete: we've got more fox & friends. it can't get any better than that but we're going to try on the other side. what do you have there? p3 it's meat, cheese and nuts. i keep my protein interesting. oh yea, me too. i have cheese and uh these herbs. p3 snacks. the more interesting way to get your protein. with my bladder leakage, the products i've tried just didn't fit right. they were very saggy. it's getting in the way of our camping trips. but with new sizes, depend fit-flex is made for me. introducing more sizes for better comfort. new depend fit-flex underwear is guaranteed to be your best fit.

(burke) gives houseplant a whole new meaning. and we covered it. talk to farmers. we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two. ♪ we are farmers. bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum ♪ abby: we are back with some headlines and we begin with a fox news alert. the war on cops striking overnight. a florida officer shot during a gunfighter. the fort myers cop now in stable condition after emergency
surgery. the suspect is in custody in text, a 32 year veteran of the dallas police department killed while blocking traffic during a funeral escort for a fellow officer. a suspected drunk driver. facing charges now for hitting senior corporal earl jamie givens. heartbreaking. also a convicted terrorist will be able to keep his u.s. citizenship. lawyers arguing that iman ferris lied on immigration papers to obtain citizenship back in 1999 but a federal judge ruled there is no evidence of that. farris admitted to scoping out the brooklyn bridge as part of an al-qaeda plot to destroy it. he is set to be released from prison in 2020. hillary clinton takes the stage at ozzie fest and taking a moment to slam president trump. >> the great mystery is why the president has not spoken up for our country. and we saw that most clearly in this recent meeting with putin.
abby: well, the failed presidential candidate suggesting that vladimir putin played the president during that helsinki summit. and there's this. a liberal senator kamal aharris wants the federal government to control rent prices. she tweeted this out, quote, " "nationally over 21 million americans spend more than 30% of their paychecks on rent. that's absurd. i introduced the rent relief act to help ease this burden. this equals more money in people people's pockets at the end of the year." i will leave it there. pete, take it away. pete: abby, thank you. well, government restrictions on religion around the world rising for the second year in a row, climbing from 25% to 28% in 2016 according to a new pew research study. so climbing back up from an even higher level in 2012. here to discuss general aprouder host of faith nation on cbn and muslim scholar and offer dr. kun kunta ahmed. thank you both of you. i'm going to ask slightly different questions to both of
you. jenna, when you look at religious restrictions in the context of america or the west, is this because folks are pushing back on religion, preferring freedom from religion religion? why is this happening, according to you? after she. >> i think when you have one force going you one way you're going to have the other force pushing back against it. i will say under this administration, the trump administration they have made religious freedom and promoting religious freedom not just for christians but for all faiths a top priority, moving forward as we head further into 2018 and to 2019. we're talking about, you know, religious freedom executive order, we're talking about the president just recently taking a strong stand on twitter for pastor brunson who's imprisoned in turkey, speaking out against nigeria and the persecution of christians there. so i definitely think you have certain forces pushing back against each other, pete. pete: absolutely. dr. ahmed, i want to get your commentary on how religion is
being treated in the west, but also in the muslim world, in places where governments maybe are cracking down on extremists. that could be the other side of this. they don't want islamic extremism on the rise so they're cracking down. where do you see this cutting? >> in the muslim world the government is very much in line with this president's philosophy philosophy. i have traveled both in iraq and also in egypt and met with military and security forces there who recognize president trump is combating extremism. muslim countries do have a problem with religious freedom in many places. think of saudi arabia, where it's not possible to worship other religions. think of pakistan where persecution of minorities is legalized in many extents. but there is now a unification to fight the political ideology of islamism. in the united states, let's not forget the government of the united states offers no sanction to bigotry, offers no permission to persecute. paraphrasing the words of george washington in 1790, and i
believe we are trying to live by that in this preside.cy pete: a lot of different shades and angles to this for sure. jenna, another topic i want to get your take on we heard a story this week, an air force back, warren air force base in wyoming has agreed to replace a bible with a generic book of faith. now, this table -- i've been through a lot of army ceremonies and what it is is a table seated for one and it is meant to remind everyone at that ceremony that you've got missing in action and prisoners of war who are not at this event because they gave their life or they're still in captivity and part of making it through that captivity is your faith, reminding that you're part of something greater than yourself. so the holy book, the holy bible is there. why would we go to the lengths of replacing it? what kind of pressure could be put on where you would go generic? >> pete, i think it's an unfortunate day for the military and for america. are we at that point that we can no longer honor the
judeo-christian principles that this country was founded on or the men, the former prisoners of war who inspired this sacred tradition with their testimonies pointing to their faith, their christian faith as the reason for getting through their captivity? so i think it's really important to point out all of this and also there's the old saying, pete, that goes "there is no atheists in foxholes." >>yep. >> religion, whether it's christianity or just faith, you know, belief in something bigger than yourself is so important to people in our military. and i would hope that the active men and women today would take a stand for faith, for this sacred tradition and for all people of faith. pete: of course that's why we have chaplains in the military as well. dr. ahmed, as a muslim scholar, do you have a problem with the holy bible being on that table? >> absolutely not. quite the converse. islam recognizes and requires
muslims to believe in the bible and also in the torah. so it's an offense to me as an american, it's also an offense to me as a muslim to have the bible removed. remember, i've just been the kurdish park mugger awho risked their lives and limbs, lost hundreds of offices, homes destroyed by people who want to see the removal of christianity. and i don't want to target the united states air force. i understand very well how the united states air force helped the kurdish park mugger arepel isis, so i have great admiration for the air force, but this is not in line with the bibles, american values or any faith based people. the bible belongs on that ta.le pete: it's a great point. usually it's one person making a weak-kneed decision that allows this to happen. jenna and doctor, thanks for joining us us this morning. socialists becoming the mainstream of the left. >> definition of democratic
socialism to me again is the fact that in a modern, moral, and wealthy society, no american should be too poor to live. pete: the associated press now pointing out a socialism surge in the age of trump. but what does it really say about the democratic party? we will discuss that next. do they really want to fully embrace socialism? plus, a democrat supports i.c.e. in a debate and gets booed. we'll show you more from this outrageous debate from arizona coming up.

world war ii, the korean war, and the rise of communist china. perhaps we should keep that in mind the next time we refer to 2018 as dark times." >>bethany mandel joins us now with more. she's an to her at ricochet and a new york post contributor. bethany, great piece. >> thanks. griff: fascinating. you talk about millennials and you say one of the favorite adages of millennials is "check your privilege." certainly applies here. >> yeah. it's so crazy to me that we talk about how hard it is to live in america, and i've lived in the third world, and let me tell you we've got it pretty easy here, and we've always had it easy. and this is just sort of a representation of the fact that so many of my generation always had a president that they liked. and so along comes a president that they don't like and all the sudden it's end times. and it's really not affecting their day-to-day lives in any meaningful way at all. abby: it's gotten so bad that you can't even talk about anything good going on in this
country. let's talk about the economy, say, you know what, things are going well, but in your piece you say that, you know, democrats, for example, can't even point to anything positive because they might be giving the president credit for something, and we just can't have that. >> yeah. i mean, what's crazy to me is more like your personal life. and when people's personal lives are going well -- i gave an example of james vanderbiek in his post it was paragraph after paragraph after paragraph about child separation at the border which is a horribly tragic painful thing but, by the way, that last line, oh, by the way, her name is gwendolyn. this is just a birth announcement, and imagine what gwendolyn is going to think when she sees her birth announcement in 20 years, you guys were more poetic on president trump than you were on me on my birthday? i know i'm the fifth but -- pete: go we understand is a great in my. in this little fishbowl, it's got to be the darkest times,
what a great analogy, we've been through some tough times. >> yeah, we've had presidents assassinated, we've lived through world wars. at the end of the day you don't have to like the president, i don't like the president every day but i can still be happy in my day-to-day life and i can still appreciate like you said, the economy is doing real well. abby: how do we as people, as friends, as family, help each other out? because it's gotten so bad where you know, even in my own family you can't talk about politics anymore because it is so divisive, and even just the name "trump" coming up, i mean, all hell can break loose. so what advice do you have for people today of how we can actually get along better? how can we talk about our daily lives in a way that just doesn't stop at the word "trump"? >> i honestly don't know because it's gotten to the point where you can't even say you have had happiness in your perishable life without a caveat, an asterisk. pete: you're not a trump supporter per se. you're saying can't i just be happy? >> i'm not apologetic about it. there's one hysteria tweet that
said, you know, i was dry heaving and i was in the fetal position in the shower. i'm like, i buried both of my parents before my 20th birthday and i don't even think i did that. you've got to have a little bit of perspective. so hillary clinton wasn't elected. like, i wasn't the happiest person in the world on election night, either, but like woke up the next morning, got my kids dressed. griff: bethany, great place. and actually my daughter is going on a abroad trip today, she's 16 and get a little bit of perspective because as you point out, you go other places you realize how good we've got it here. thanks for being here. abby: and you also had your baby delivered in a car. should have had you on in the last segment. griff: thanks for being here. all right. what's funny about this? comedian michelle wolf comparing i.c.e. to terrorists. >> take it from me. no organization is better than isis. griff: joey jones lost both of his legs in afghanistan.

pete: welcome back. well, it is debate season, of course, for primaries and general elections. more politics to come as we move toward the 2018 election. one debate in particular caught all of our eyes on the democratic side. arizona's second congressional district, a democratic congressional candidate. her name is ann kirkpatrick. she's a former representative. she's now running for a seat again. and they did in these debates what they oftentimes do, raise your hand if you support this or support athat. it's tough. but you got to have the courage to do it or not do it. questions were asked about do you support i.c.e. and are you okay with what maxine waters has said. she raised her hand and everything else didn't. look what happened to her when she did. look what happened to her.
>> if you would have declared your support for i.c.e. agents without any increased oversight? [crowd booing] >> would you have supported democratic leadership in condemning ms. watters' comments comments? [crowd booing] abby: not only did she raise her hand, griff, she didn't even hesitate. griff: and you know what's significant about that is just this past week republicans tried to bring to the floor a bill that condemned i.c.e. that was going to abolish i.c.e. ultimately. they ended up not doing that and said they voted on a bill to support i.c.e., but that was because republicans wanted democrats on record, and there you have one woman saying look, i'm going to support law enforcement officers carrying out the laws made by politicians politicians. pete: and i condemn harassment of political opponents so i raise my hand. abby: you can often get a sense of where political parties are at the localest of levels, and i think this was a real indication
of where the democratic party is and where people like her go if you find herself as a democrat but you aren't as extreme as some of those that have the loudest voices in the party calling for abolishing i.c.e. and open borders and things like that, can you win elections? this is going to be the big debate within the democratic party. pete: we shall see what the response is for her. we asked you for responses. a tweet from mike said, "these folks have no clue about i.c.e. i.c.e.'s mission." >>from jack, "the modern democrat party is so far left if a candidate espouses anything not radical left, you get booed by liberal voters." it's a tough place to be. pete: yeah. when you're not left and it's going hard left, you got a choice to make. abby: for standing for a woman who's telling people to harass whoever -- pete: shouldn't be that courageous. you're right. abby: she did the right thing there but i wish there were more people raising their hands. chopping on the show the d.o.j. releases hundreds of fisa documents, and there are new bombshells you don't want to miss. that's next. pete: and millennials outraged after a baseball team hosts millennial night with selfie

really detailed detailed info. griff: the best part is if you look here and you read along with me, and you can just see, that you've got about 30 pages, right? of black lines, all of these pages are blank and then i final ly get to the -- pete: all sources. griff: the first page where after 30-something pages, 35 pages of blank lines, it says, conclusion, as discussed above, the fbi believes that page has been collaborating with the russian government. pete: which of course he did not abby: by the way this is all evidence that ultimately led to getting a fisa warrant to surveil carter page who is a former advisor on the trump campaign and this ultimately led to in part to what is going on right now in the mueller investigation and what you find reading these documents and you've dissected this more than anybody is a big portion goes back to the dossier, right? pete: correct. abby: the christopher steele
dossier, whose discredited but the dossier is not. griff: not only in part this is the fundamental and as we're learning because of tom fitton and actually the president's been tweeting this morning busy, he's tweeting congratulations, should have put that up, congratulations to judicial watch and tom fitton on successfully getting the carter page fisa documents as usual they're heavily redacted but confirm with little doubt the department of "justice" and fbi mislead the courts, rigged a scam. there's obviously some editorial in there, in terms of the president's view, but we now know the confirmation that source number one was the steele dossier, with the fbi ultimately dismissed as a source but yet rod rosenstein, the deputy attorney general in charge of the mueller investigation has signed off on moving it forward. i know you've been -- pete: can i get camera one just for one second really quick? the dossier wasn't just a source or a major source. it was source number one.
the hillary clinton dnc-funded dossier unverified selacious dirty dossier sourced number one for this fisa application. we had andy mccarthy on the program he was shocked because he thought there's no way the fbi would approve this type of surveillance which again another part before i get to that. inside this it's probably standard for fisa applications. the same authorities that are given under this application may incidentally acquire other foreign intel info during the process. may carter page have been the nose under the tent, the foot under the door to get inside the trump campaign and get information on them. andy mccarthy was shocked that this information would be allowed unverified to be the basis. abby: and not just signed by james comey who had to sign off on this but also he talks about the judges that had to sign off as well. here is what he told us earlier on the show. >> i'm really embarrassed because i told people for months that this could never ever happen. what i told people was that you're not even going to hear about the dossier when we final
ly learn what's in the fisa warrant. when you read this thing it's astonishing. they actually, it's as if they took the dossier and slapped every caption on it and gave it to the judge which i must say, i mean this is so bad that they ought to be looking at the judges who signed off on this stuff not just the people who gave it. griff: you know, a little context here andrew mccarthy whose as good as anybody on this points out just on page 53 of 412 pages the fbi has reviewed this verified p.m. for accuracy, the fact is we know that it is not verified. there is not an accuracy matter, but urls being inundated with a lot of other sources that mccarthy talked about. here is what he said about blasting the sources that were used to obtain continual warrant s, listen. >> what they did here was they had this guy steele who helped them in another case, and they don't have any idea who his
sources are, his sources are unidentified. they're russians, and they themselves are operating on hear say information so for the most part even his sources are not claiming that they saw and heard the things that they're asking the judge to rely on. pete: when the president talked about not being comfortable with his intelligence agencies for a long time this kind of application is exactly why he's justified in saying that. we've put up a couple times what i've called reading at the deep state signature page. you look at the people that signed off on this you've got james comey signing off but also john kerry and andy mccabe and susan rice and sally yates and a bunch of signatures redacted maybe peter strzok we don't know we can only speculate but there's reason to be skeptical. if media reports and media reports were used as andy mccarthy pointed out for the second and third application because they never found anything on carter page. abby: and rod rosenstein by the way whose helping lead all of this up, we talked to david bossie whose trump's former
deputy campaign manager and he had some tough words for rosenstein the question he needs to face he calls on him to recuse himself from that. >> rod rosenstein must recuse himself and it calls into question his judgment as somebody who is fighting congress for the release of these documents. now, we understand through this redaction or through this release of documents that he actually signed the document to allow the fisa warrant. i don't understand how he could oversee this and now, i understand and it calls into question the judgment at the top levels of the department of justice and fbi. griff: one of the things that andy mccarthy said was that he was shocked that this actually did get released but now that it has been released and as we've been talking this is big news. this isn't a one day story. this is going to go on the questions raised on rod rosenstein, whether or not he recuses himself, this raises into question as the president has been tweeting where the mueller investigation heads now, and whether or not the president
, whose the ultimate declassifier, if it came to it the president could declassify all of these redacted segments, whether or not we will learn more because now the american people are going to demand as mark meadows the house freedom caucus is for more transparencies. abby: and what about hillary clinton's involvement in the dnc when we talk about this dossier and christopher steele if they are crediting the dossier for evidence here they also left out the involvement of hillary clinton and the dnc in those early days. that's a real problem. griff: in this de classification early on on page 16 i believe they talk about u.s. person one that we believe fox news believes in our reporting is glenn simpson the fusion gps with the ties to dnc hillary clinton so more on that. pete: you want as much redacted to not reveal sources and methods, meadows included that as well but you look at all of the redactions and how much has been withheld by the doj and the fbi and you just can't help but be skeptical that at the high levels there's people still covering people's backs trying to not get embarrassed and they
don't want this information coming out. we've heard so much misinformation, so to finally get documents that point out that admit that the dossier was the source of this, has to call into question the mueller probe and it has to call into question as meadows said as david bossie said the role of rod rosenstein. if jeff sessions recused himself from meeting a couple guys, if rosenstein is now in charge of the mueller probe and verified unverified and approved things that are not valid, i don't know how he can be perceived as fair, let alone what the president calls the 13 angry democrats. the clinton supporters that are digging into the past and they haven't found anything yet on carter page, yet they have all that surveillance? it just feels sloppy and it just feels targeted and political. abby: as you said these are not low level employees within the doj and the fbi. these are the people at the very very top and i think it begs the much bigger question of our country and what we should stand for and how significant should
be evidence be to get a warrant on somebody. should politics ever be at play in something as big as this? griff: right and the politics there's one more fold we talked with andy mccarthy about and that is while this was signed off on, it was signed off on by a redacted named fbi agent and we're seeing so much about peter strzok, so much about lisa page, andy believes that perhaps behind closed doors some of the officials know who that name is but we may yet learn there's more bias. pete: we saw it and we know who testified last week, teacher and we saw what he said about trump and how he felt about trump but doesn't it make you leave when he signed that signature he was hoping to sign the end of the trump campaign and sign the beginning of the hillary clinton campaign? i'm sorry but you can't look at those texts and look at this document and not feel like bias was involved and that means it's political surveillance and that's not acceptable in our republic. abby: a lot of big questions remains so stay tuned for all of this big news but i do want to bring you other headlines coming to our news room starting with a
fox news alert. a woman is killed during a supermarket standoff, up to 50 people were inside a los angeles trader joes when the terrifying siege began. >> hear about six more shots i'm pretty sure they were returning fire at him, just a scary moment. >> then i saw people just running towards the back of the store so i knew that something was wrong. abby: people were running for their lives as others escaped through a window. a trader joe's employee was shot dead inside of that store. the three-hour standoff ended when the suspect walked out in handcuffs. earlier in the day the suspect shot his girlfriend and his grandmother who are now in critical condition. also there's a manhunt underway at this hour for a surveillances accused in a brutal chemical attack. a southern california woman is in critical condition after suffering severe burns to her face and body. officers say a suspect poured an unknown chemical on the woman before driving away. police are looking for a motive
in that attack and there's this. comedian michelle wolf who attacked white house press secretary sarah sanders is at it again. this time comparing i.c.e. to terrorists. watch this. >> take it from me. no organization is better than isis. abby: joey jones who lost both of his legs in a bomb blast while fighting terrorists in afghanistan joined us earlier on the show to respond here is what he says. >> you know it was outrageous when snl paired isis as they were burning people alive years ago and it's just sad that michelle wolf is trying to recycle the same stuff and attacking honorable men and women while doing so. abby: jones calling wolf disrespectful for painting border agents as anything but heros. and a powerful communications satellite is launched overnight. >> liftoff.

it, create the jobs here and don't be victims of the fluctuations that come from opec griff: john, why, i think is the question, we have become so competitive? >> well the main reason is we've changed the february noology by which we produce oil & gas. it used to be that every well was unique custom well just like we used to make cars one at a time. when today, we make cars from automated assembly lines with a whole bunch of technology involved that's what's happened in the oil field so we've become so much more productive especially in shale formations where we know where the oil is so we can develop so much more so quickly, and oil field instead of a collection of custom wells becomes like a factory putting out oil & gas because of the nature of how we produce oil today. abby: what does it do to impact our standing in the world because obviously russia has a huge leverage in the market and
europe relies on them in large part because of oil, so the more independent we become, does that give us much greater strength in foreign policy for example? >> well first of all it would disconnect us from opec pricing so that the cost of energy to americans would be based upon american production rather than withholding oil like opec has done so many times to keep the price up, and as we know, high oil prices makes other consumers have a more difficult time buying everything they need, so if we can keep steady state oil prices and if we can shift to natural gas fuels, we could say goodbye to opec forever, and that would lead to lower prices, sustained value creation, and more american jobs as far into the future as we could see. griff: that sounds like a good thing and john as you were saying when we were talking to you at the break you say let the rest of the guys fire it out
amongst themselves we'll just become independent. >> that's right. abby: awesome stuff, john great to have you on. >> thank you. abby: have a great sunday. coming up millennials, well, not much you know about millennials. griff: they're outraged. abby: always outraged and napping. griff: we have more on that coming up. sometimes, bipolar i disorder

proverbial hat. great idea. where does the idea come from and how did millennial night go? >> thanks for having me. millennial night went really well last night. we had a little bit more than our average attendance which is always good. the idea was something that came about last summer, i believe it was georgetown university did it at a women's soccer game, and a few, so if anybody should be offended it should be them because we stole their idea, but we took that idea and kind of made it our own and put a little minor league baseball spin on it abby: when we give our viewers some of the things involved you had avocado burgers, napping stations, you had like a selfie station, participation ribbons. look we all have to be able to poke fun at ourselves and just be a little bit light hearted about this but also, a reminder of this generation and i'm part of it. it's so self-consumed, michael. >> absolutely i'm a part of it as well. abby: what's wrong with us?

generation would not put up with this stuff. the reason we were such hard workers was to do it with hard work, not being lazy so are we pushing this idea, michael, of promoting our laziness? >> not at all. i think we work hard in our own ways here as millennials. pete: part of it is self- awareness. you've got to be able to make fun of yourself a little bit and minor league baseball too, folks haven't been to a minor league baseball game. it's more than a baseball game. bring your kids always fun stuff going on probably more than anything else about having a good time making fun of yourself >> 100%, i think it's a little bit over 75% of americans live within a minor league baseball market so i encourage everybody to go to your local minor league baseball team and check it out not only do you get to see future stars of major league baseball but that's what we're all about is the fun aspect. we don't control the baseball on the field. i can't go and tell our manager we need to change this but i can control the promotions that we
have going on and the food specials we have going on and the ability for families to come out and make a memory at the ballpark. griff: quickly, michael who won the game? >> the biscuits did not win. the mississippi braves actually. abby: michael murphy really good stuff. pete: i actually recently went to a lakewood blue clues versus the columbus fireflies in new jersey. kids loved it. they go right down on the field. griff: any napping stations? pete: no napping stations but naps for a three year old actually. abby: you don't need a station they just nap wherever they are. all right coming up a very special delivery, a mom giving birth in a chick-fil-a bathroom and the dad wrapping his newborn daughter in the shirt off his back, a trump 2020 shirt hear from those participants they joined us on the show earlier and their little nugget just ahead. pete: and socialism becoming the new mainstream of the left. forget about capitalism, bernie sanders and alexandria cortez future of the democratic party these days now hitting the

admit this at some point. pete: carter page was just a gateway and yet they haven't found anything on carter page. maria: this is the most extraordinary thing. carter page is the guy who was wiretapped we have a comment from him this morning and no charges at all. the fact that he's still running around if he was this russian agent then why haven't there been any charges? this insure aid has got to stop. abby: mark meadows has been tweeting out about this you have bob goodlatte on your show next hour, what are the big questions coming from them because they may have the chance to sit down with rosenstein others that have been part of this and try and get to the bottom of it. maria: well i understand the witness list is growing in terms of bob goodlatte's list. he's going to join me the chairman of the judiciary committee we'll get his reaction to this fisa warrant evidence and also get a list from him of who he would like to speak to. i understand john brennan is on that list, trashing the president every moment he can. meanwhile he's incredibly conflicted in this story, rod rosenstein you make a great
point. the bottom line of rod rosenstein is increasingly for the last several months all of the chairman of these committees , oversight, noon ease , on intel, gowdy, goodlatte , they're all saying that rod rosenstein is conflicted because he signed off on that last warrant. griff: he's on the hook. i've got to ask you one of the things though because obviously i love this fisa thing i'm going to talk about all week, and still keep a copy of the failing new york times, there has been a story yesterday on ap today in the new york times you see democrats brace as storm brews farther to the left we've seen this young woman running here in the bronx, alexandria cortez, you'll talk a little bit about that today. what do you make of that? maria: and let me tell you that is the future of the democratic party. if you listen to the head of the dnc, just yet a month ago that she is the future of the democratic party. what i have found speaking to

any moderate democrat that wants to go up against president trump in 2020 you don't even get your party nomination. tim ryan and the list goes on. they're not going to get the nomination because the leadership of the left has been hijacked. hijacked by barack obama, elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. pete: well said. maria: bob goodlatte, alan dershowitz is coming on and then talk to steve scalise about that the majority whip and he will talk about the democratic party and expectations going into the mid-term elections. griff: sunday morning futures. maria: we're also talking with bill browder, a live interview, who of course we know has been targeted by vladimir putin so he's my guest as well. abby: see you soon. a lot going on this morning i want to bring you other headlines we start with a fox news alert and the war on cops, striking overnight. a florida officer shot during a gun fight the fort myers cop now in stable condition after emergency surgery the suspect is now in custody in texas a 32

protesting outside the white house making their message clear , whatever that is our next guest says protesting and resistance have become the democrat party's culture. radio talk show host chris plant joins us now to explain. chris thanks for being here this morning. they were there last night, the president is not even there, but they're outside the white house for the sixth straight day protests. what are they protesting and what does it say about the left today? >> you know, it's the culture of protest. it's the culture of resistance that barack obama has inflicted upon our country. he was a community organizer. he's left thousands of community organizers in his wake and they need to protest something. now these guys, look they're out in the middle of the night in a dark park, across from an empty house, screaming at the top of their lungs to protest something that they can't really define but they get people to turn out anyway. you know and i know that if you called on a group of republicans to show up outside of an empty
house in the middle of the night in the dark in a dark and empty park to protest pep that aren't there, that no one would show up but we know that these people show up for a week, every day is an iq test as i like to say and i've got to say these people aren't really faring very well right now, but this is part of the legacy of president obama and it's just making noise, assaulting people in restaurants , insulting people at gas stations, drumming up mobs to shout people down. this is today's democratic party and look it's the left. we've seen this culture of protests in europe for decades now but we didn't really have it here before barack obama and now we do. pete: i've actually tried it and been outside the white house with a mega phone with vets trying to get the va fixed so they've got guests coming, alyssa milano has been there, stormy daniels attorney, a couple members of congress so it's not just the grassroots. this is resistance coming from leaders as well. >> oh, it absolutely is and as
you said there's a big hollywood actress alyssa milano, you got stormy daniels the pornster's lawyer whose a big tv celebrity and listen to me it's the perfect diagram of the democratic party. you've got hollywood pornography and a left wing congressman, what more do you need to know about today's democrat party screaming in the dark outside an empty house in an effort to keep the first family awake at night because if they don't like donald trump, i think they'd only like him better after several nights of sleep deprivation. pete: whatever those circles may be, they all do center around hatred for this president is this a winning strategy for the left? they're counting on it in 2018 you know they count on it in 20, where does this get them? >> i don't think it wins many friends. look if they knew anything about history in 1968 richard nixon won because the left was in the street violently, beating people up and setting things on fire.
they're back, they haven't learned the lessons of history. this is the left. look this is not the democratic party i grew up una democrat household i used to be a democrat. this is the left. they're not democrats they're the left. pete: well ronald regan famously said he didn't leave the democratic party the democratic party left him. i think we're seeing a lot of that as the party moves extreme to the left. thank you very much, chris appreciate your time. thanks. pete: up next, tmz's harvey levi n is here to share his behind the scenes interview with one of rock's greatest showmen, aerosmith's steven tyler. >> when did you discover drugs? >> when i first heard music.
aerosmith has always lived on the edge. abby: but now tmz founder is getting to see behind the scenes of one of rock's greatest show men. >> how do you have a meaningful relationship when you have women throwing themselves at you all the time? >> you cheat. you cheat. you break. you just don't, you're not true. you're not faithful and i paid dearly for it. abby: it is all on fox news channel show, hosted by harvey and he joins us right now. harvey what a great person to interview and get to know. we all love the show. at one point, he mentions the fact that he has lead singer disease. what is that? >> it's actually, you're close. it's lead singer disorder. abby: oh, our producer got that wrong. >> which by the way, it shouldn't be lost on anybody that's lsd with steven tyler.
yeah, he says that lead singer disorder basically means somebody stands out una band, usually it's the lead singer and it causes enormous conflict in the band, and he has a story relationship/feud with joe perry , the band has busted up and gotten back together over decades as a result of this, and he thinks it's jealous it. he essentially says the other band members are jealous, but i'm telling you guys, it is unbelievable to listen to steven , and realize that he could be alive today after the things he did in aerosmith, and drugs loom large in what steven tyler did that it was he used it a lot while the band was rising and it caused the band to break apart and crash and almost ruined his life before he remarkably turned it around, but one of the things i asked him
about was his drug use and whether he still is craving it. pete: here is the clip. >> when did you discover drugs? >> wow, when i first heard music. and i don't know whether you admit it on tv or not but you did drugs in your time. >> you're wrong. >> hello? >> i was just paranoid. >> okay and i was paranoid italian. abby: wow harvey what saved him what brought him back? >> well, that's the best question, because he cleaned himself up but then slipped again. cleaned himself up and then slipped again. i think what happened was he cleaned himself up during a period where all of a sudden, they had this resurgence in the band, and what he realized was my god, my life can go on for a long time and i can be successful for a long time without dealing with drugs, because if you look at what happened to aerosmith when the band was in their 40s they
became even more popular than they were when the band was in their 20s and brought this whole new generation along so he talks about it but he's so honest and i ask him, do you miss drugs? he misses drugs. he thinks of drugs the way you think of, no he literally challenged me guys literally talks about drugs as the e equivalent of putting salt on food. griff: right harvey i'm 47 so aerosmith really happened throughout my youth and growing up and i loved this band and steven tyler for many years but does he talk about how he was able to persevere particularly in the absence of drugs to be creatively motivated and have hit after hit after hit. >> he does, but he is not apologizing for what he did and he thinks that when he wrote some of the songs they wrote early on that drugs were an inspiration for him. see, he doesn't really apologize for this and at the same time,
he now finds other outlets to persevere like you say but he still really misses it and he talks about it. pete: well it airs tonight objectified on the fox news channel at 8:00 p.m. if you saw this interview you'll want to watch it. abby: his honesty is refreshing we all need that about now. >> i agree. abby: love it we look forward to it good to see you. >> good seeing you guys thank you. griff: can't wait to see that. all right we got more fox & friends coming up. moments away. don't go anywhere. pete: we'll be right back. >> ♪ ♪
