tv   Outnumbered Overtime With Harris Faulkner  FOX News  January 22, 2019 10:00am-11:00am PST

10:00 am
when my kids ask, "when is the shutdown going to end?" is little addressing that i don't know. [laughter] we are back at noon eastern tomorrow. now here is harris. >> harris: are be any closer? fox news alert, dueling bills reopen the government as a partial government shutdown hits day 32. a new month. federal workers are risking missing a second paycheck. this is "outnumbered overtime." i'm harris faulkner. senate republicans say they hope to begin debate today on the president's shutdown proposal. democrats have already rejected it, saying it does not go far enough in protecting dreamers. house democrats plan to push ahead with their own bill to reopen the government, but if lawmakers don't reach a deal, federal workers will miss another paycheck this friday. meanwhile, the white house is urging swift action on the president's plan. here is deputy press secretary hogan gidley. >> at the expectations are clear. he wants an open government and
10:01 am
secure borders. right now the senate works to move on a bill potentially to thursday for a vote. we have a humanitarian crisis along our southern border. we have a national security crisis along that border as well. he put forth a common sense plan that uses things that democrats wanted, included that in the plan, and we want to scare the government. democrats refuse to come to the table at all. >> harris: chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel has more. the latest? >> good afternoon. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says everyone makes a point, now it's time to make law. here are the key points of the proposal, which the senate is expected to consider. $5.7 billion for a physical barrier along the highest priority locations of the southwest border. three years of protection for the daca recipients, a three year extension of temporary protective status for thousands of others of immigrants living in the u.s., and $12.7 billion in disaster relief for hurricanes, wildfires, and more.
10:02 am
house speaker nancy pelosi told us a short time ago that she is not impressed. >> when we heard the president was going to make a proposal, we were optimistic that he may be reaching out to open up government so that but then we heard what the particulars were, and it was a nonstarter unfortunately. >> president trump tweeted earlier, "without a wall, or come down that country can never have border or national security. with a powerful wall or steel barrier, crime rate and drugs will go substantially down all over the u.s. the dems know this but want to play political games. must finally be done correctly. no cave." and a new york republican says he hopes this will get things moving. >> the president has made very reasonable compromises here. if the democrats are serious, they will come to the table. i guess what i would hope for right now is that mitch mcconnell can move this in the senate and restart a debate. try and bring democrats over. ideally, pass it in the senate.
10:03 am
then have it sent to the house. nancy pelosi will pass a different bill, but then at least a set of negotiations can begin. >> on day 32 of this partial government shutdown a california democrat is critical of where things stand. >> using the united states government, the most important government in the world, as a bargaining chip or as a hostage in the negotiation really does create very serious security problems in numerous ways for this entire nation. >> to move the president's proposal in the senate, it requires 60 yes votes. so at least seven democrats will need to go along with republicans in moving the measure along. the house is going its own direction, moving its own spending bills. so this is not going away. it's not going to be resolved anytime soon. harris? >> harris: mike emanuel, thank you very much. i want to bring in a republican adam kinzinger of illinois, a member of the house commerce and foreign affairs committees. great to see you today. later on in this program we are going to go live at one of the
10:04 am
nation's largest airports because we may have reached a tipping point. all along, the tsa was critical. now they are at 10% workforce call in sick situation as of yesterday. how close are we to actually getting a deal on the hill? >> i hope it's soon. i think the president put forward a good, reasonable compromise. if the democrats don't like it, that's fine, that's prerogative. but but something for that's realistic and doesn't start with "no wall." i think it will have to be some middle ground. i think with the president put forward, he wants $25 billion for the wall. he has put forward $5 billion and breathing room for congress to do it stop on the bigger issue of immigration, which we can do. we can get to where 80% of the mega people like what's going on. ultimately, it's going to be up to the democrats if they do a counterproposal or just simply be the party of "no." >> harris: congressman, did we start to feel a bit of daylight last week when we had steny hoyer with bret baier and
10:05 am
senator ben cardin with me? we were both asking, "you already have hundreds of miles of barrier wall, whatever you want to call it. strong line fence, whatever. you say you're not going to tear that down. so what difference would 200 more make in terms of the logic of being against it?" we already know it works in some places. steny hoyer, house majority leader on the democratic side of the house now saying, "yeah, actually it does." >> i hope it's daylight, i hope it's a start. i have seen the border as a guard pilot. it's wide open in certain areas. what a wall does is reduce the amount of areas that all this other technology and people have to cover. it shrinks the border. you are completely right, there are walls down there already. putting some more on makes it more effective to be able to use of the technology to protect the border. it's the right thing to do, and to think the democrats backed themselves into a corner because they are just opposing president trump because he said "wall" in the campaign, and the
10:06 am
far left base has said, "you can never cave on anything related to the wall." we are in a position where both side doesn't want to budge. the president put forth a good-faith effort to negotiate and we're waiting for the democrats to respond. >> harris: by the become a majority leader mitch mcconnell is on the floor and up. if that makes news, we will bring it to you. here's what he is pitching and what it would do. trade temporary protections for young undocumented immigrants and others for $5.7 billion the president is seeking for that boarded barrier. the legislation would reopen the government through september 30th, while funding a variety of other immigration security measures and spending $12.7 billion on hurricane and wildfire disaster relief. if this thing -- again, senator mcconnell on the senate floor right now -- if this thing were too pass, congress and kinsinger, this puts it back in house. the question is, will nancy pelosi pelosi, speaker of the house, then push for democrats not to reopen the
10:07 am
government if this actually passes this bill for mcconnell? >> that's a good question. i've been in this position a hundred times. we have the majority, where the senate would send something over another question is, "are you going to put on the floor and let some republicans and democrat support? and i don't think there's anything wrong with it with both sides coming together to say they don't live within it. but at least it's progressing forward. she's going to have a decision to make. i hope the senate can pass it. even if they can't, again, the onus is not on them to say, "okay commute like it. that's your right." and keep the government close. >> harris: does that then spread spread what the american people -- they can only look at this now, after 32 days, of "y'all can't get along. a pox on both your houses." i want to be able to answer this question with you first. when the democrats say they are not really getting real daca and they want more, what do you think they mean? >> i think they mean they want something broader. that's fine, that's what we will debate here in congress. that's with the three years that
10:08 am
the president's offering is for. it's breathing room. >> harris: opening the government? >> i don't know. there's not a lot of good faith right now, and that's too bad. >> harris: boy. congressman, from the great state of illinois, thank you. we appreciate it. questions i have four guests on the other side of the political aisle, i'm joined by stacy plaskett. how senior whip and member of the oversight committee. thanks for being with us. good to see. >> thanks for having me. >> harris: absolute. i don't know if you could hear your colleague from across the aisle. adam kinzinger, just then. let's start with what the sun is to get done. if they pass, if they can get some hidden democrats to join them and then it comes to the house, we democrats actually vote no and not reopen the government? what would that look like? >> what i think we need to say is what democrats have done already. that is, when we come back in january, taking the same bill that mitch mcconnell had passed with bipartisan support on the
10:09 am
senate side to reopen the government in december and put that on the floor. that passed in the house and we have asked him now to take that up with a sense go to the president. he refused to do that. that one had ariel fund income and we are now -- >> harris: berry funding for the wall funding. >> we had already given some funding for walls and repairs of wall. we are asking is -- >> harris: so that is a "no." >> what we are asking is that we sit down and have a real discussion about border security. the same way that my colleagues say what we are supposed be doing is having hearings on daca, on deferred action for children, why haven't had that discussion about border walls? why didn't the president, when he had a unified front in the house and the senate, bring this up? bring up having funding for the wall when he had both a republican in the senate on both sides of the house and senate? he did do that when he had the opportunity. he knows very well that this is not the most efficient use of funding. but it's something that he knows
10:10 am
he has to do for those individuals who are asking them to do so. the democrats are proposing is that we spend money wisely. that we do need support for our borders. we know that over 80% of the drugs and contraband the comment to this country do not come from these borders. the come from our ports of entry. so let's get drones, let's build the hundreds of individuals, thousands of jobs that are needed on the board he. >> harris: i'm going to step in, congresswoman. i want to pick up things he said. you said a real discussion. the president actually, if you put politics aside, knows what the rest of the robe also knows in terms of that very important. we are hearing it from border now. the experts that in certain areas it works. your house majority leader steny hoyer said, on fox news last week, that in certain areas various work. it's not the complete picture, it's a barrier system. that is the position, actually, where the president has moved away from that concrete wall and moved toward what you are
10:11 am
saying. it would seem. he also knew back then when we had bicameral majority that they didn't have the kind of majority that was bulletproof, did they? because they needed 60 democrats in the house to go forward. excuse me, and senate, to go forward. you still need a vote of 60 in order for this to go forward. it's a little disingenuous to say, "why did the president's will to get it done?" there were republicans who were against. because they didn't like the amnesty, as they call the come apart of daca. the question now is -- >> but he didn't even bring it to the senate to have a discussion about it. >> harris: we know the president will only find something that has a barrier in it, consistent with the already 600 plus miles. >> we already gave him $1.6 billion for barrier in the last bill, which has not been expended. while we agree with barriers come we have a disagreement as to what barriers mean. we believe the drones, electronic devices, cameras, and individuals are a much better
10:12 am
effective. dominic barrier than steel walls are. we would like to have that discussion. we would like to have that debate. >> harris: could you live without? >> i think we are living with both, because we have already given $1.6 billion in the previous appropriations for those barrier walls. we are saying is that it's sufficient at this time. and let's have a discussion about the others. as for daca, the dreamers, as for temporary protective status, i think it's disingenuous for the president, an individual who took away the safety that these individuals had come up to now say that he's putting it back on the table. this would not have been on the table if he had not been the person through executive order to take away about security for those young people who are here in this country. >> harris: it was never really solid, because of his executive order to begin with under former president obama. so you are correct in saying that whatever happens next has to have more of that foundational protection if both sides are going to get a little
10:13 am
bit of what they want. congresswoman plaskett, i hope you will come back. it's a tough job you got. the american people are just perched to get people back to work. >> thanks for having me come in for having both sides of the argument on the show. i appreciate that. >> harris: always. always on over time. thank you. the president plans to deliver the state of the union address in exactly one week, as scheduled. now we are learning the white house is pursuing a backup plan just in case. chief white house correspondent john roberts' life from the north lawn. in just a little while, john, we had first anticipated a walk-through today. then we learned that a walk through be a week from today. what we do know is that the speech potentially is coming, and it could have two tracks. what are they? >> let's go with the two tracks first. first of all, the first track on the one the white house wants to pursue and the one the president wants to have happen is that the president will come a week from tonight, go up to the capitol building. and in in the house of representatives, he delivers the state of the union address as
10:14 am
planned. we do not know if that will happen, because we can go monday nancy pelosi's sent a letter to the president asking them to postpone his speech until the government was reopened. or, if not postpone the speech, delivered in writing. her premise was that because of the government shutdown there were security concerns. that the department from insecurity in the u.s. secret service, the lead agency for protecting the state of the union, were potentially understaffed because they had not been funded now for 32 days. the white house and dhs and the u.s. secret service push back on all this, saying there is no security problem here. we do not know if the state of the union will happen next tuesday. we do know that the white house sent a request up to up to the sergeant-at-arms. this is what you were talking about a second ago. on sunday, asking for a walk-through. because last week the sergeant at arms canceled the plan walk-through at the request of speaker pelosi's office. that request went to the sergeant-at-arms on sunday talking about yesterday for a
10:15 am
potential walk-through. yesterday was a holiday, and they couldn't do one then. so we are not sure if there will be the one. but we expect that request is going to have to pelosi's office and she will have to sign off on whether it happens. >> harris: you know, it's interesting to watch the back-and-forth on the venues now. because we are anticipating that they would be that. does that have, historically, any meaning? where it is? >> well, yeah. the constitution requires the president to report to congress from time to time about the state of the union. that can be on a speech to congress, or in writing. it doesn't have to happen every year. it just happens whenever the speaker of the house decides when he or she wants to invite the president up to give the speech. if the president gives a speech at a different venue, does not constitute a report to congress customer victories out on that. which brings the tobacco plant. the second track the white house is prepping a backup plan. the plan is to go to the capital
10:16 am
next tuesday, but there is a backup plan for them to give a speech at some location outside of washington, d.c. this question as to whether that would constitute a state of the union address. >> harris: juicing. or he could do both, he could do the letter, and off-site, too. we are watching the ball move but we are looking to see if they can reopen the government. your last thought? >> here's one thing i can tell you really quickly. the sergeant at arms 'staff was told last week and again today, to prepare for the state of the union that is if it's going to happen. just in case. the department of homeland security and the u.s. secret service can't stop their plans for preparing for the state of union. so the only person who has to decide whether or not this is going to happen is nancy pelosi. >> harris: wow. okay. thank you, john roberts. bringing back every day as we can. appreciate it. president trump's attorney rudy giuliani is no walking back some comments he made about concessions regarding the trump tower moscow project. this controversy over that now,

10:22 am
variety of causes at the march for life, running into a bunch of catholic youths wearing "make america great again" hats. it fit a perfect narrative. and here is the narrative we saw emerging, at least in the initial stages. a smirking maga-wearing white boy confronts a native american elder. it goes viral. the covington dioceses condemned the kids and has yet to retract that condemnation. they came back to covington after the march for life, stepped off the bus into a firestorm of hatred that forced the closure of their school today. >> there have been many threats against our lives, against our parents. some of these such include that we should all be locked in the school and it should be burned to the ground. the school being bombed. school shooting threats. it's really scary. >> at a peace vigil this morning to thoughts of the covington diocese, native americans and
10:23 am
many of gather here today, occasionally disrupted from heated words by the bystanders pay for the most part, very peaceful trade this dr. script initially delivered on freddie. >> we are still here as indigenous people. we are still treated with disrespect. resolve to fight for our basic human rights in this country, this land of the free. i just hope that america and the world will see that it's time that we all unite as one people, one mind, one heart. >> while the "smirking mix he had been," that kid involved in the standoff, issued a statement through his lawyer. it says, "by part, i believed by remaining motionless and calm i was hoping to diffuse the situation. i realized everyone had cameras and perhaps a group of adults was trying to provoke a group of
10:24 am
teenagers into a larger conflict." it has now also come to light that the initial publication was delivered by a group of african-american youth representing the black hebrew israelites. they taunted the covington kids because of their "make america great again" has. it's widely believed, calling them a homophobic square slayers. crackers born to its social parents. they went on more than that. the native american entered into the mixture of us to begin his drum beating. many are urging these youths to file suit. we are looking at one tweet here that indicates that may be coming. it's a treat -- i don't know who delivered it, but it says, "it's not about border security. it's about white supremacy. prayers for nathan phillips and the teens taught to hate. >> well, robert barnes, a lawyer in los angeles, saw that tweet and responded with his own. "this is a libelous live. retract or get sued." i spoke via text to robert barnes last night. he says he's going to keep that
10:25 am
promise and many more to come. harris, back to you. >> harris: doug mckelway reporting live and setting us up with the facts. thank you very much. i want to bring enough someone special on this. fox news media analyst howard kurtz, host of "media buzz." i lean on your as we talk about how this story was reported. a "gq" writer says he regrets, howie, a now deleted tweet in which he called for the doxxing of the covington catholic high school students. these are young boys, who their personal information this the "gq" writer would want everywhere. making them even more of a target. those children are now home with their families, or just home. out of school today for their own protection. how do you think this came to be, that we got it so wrong, some members of the media? >> first of all, there have been a fraud of apologies by their rush to
10:26 am
judgment. there was a deleted tweet that the kids should be punched in the face. you have a "new york times" contributor saying, "i was a complete dolt to put up these obnoxious tweets." what happened was everybody rushed to judgment after seeing this one video that made it appear that may be the kids were getting in the face of this native american guy who was banging the drum. but other videos and more interviews, because nobody waits anymore. people have to click them and give their hot take. it made clear that the kids were trying to keep the peace. it shows you what a toxic stew the social media and particularly a place like twitter have become. where hatred can be unleashed at a moment's notice. and some 11th grade kid who nobody had ever heard of can get vilified, and that we death threats and the close being >> at some left this is happened in the kentucky area. it's happening all over you look at this blood feud report with regard to the president.
10:27 am
when members of the media get it so wrong, and we all make mistakes, but this thing heated up, caught fire. jamie lee curtis, who everybody should still be talking about the resurgence of "halloween the movie," now is out with her apology about how she jumped to conclusions on instagram. this thing got lit. >> the common element here on the boat's feed store unsubstantiated peace based on two on the sources, the video, a giant echo chamber, blessed everywhere. so robert miller's office put out the very unusual denial. the covington case, everybody is an instant expert. you look at one video, one tweet, everybody's got to weigh in. that's how you get clicks and attention. but i think it's a really embarrassing moment, particularly for journalists whose job it is to check the facts, that's why you're seeing so many of these apologies. >> harris: i don't want to over blow, some of it can be locked. some of it's because you and i are gently over the age of 29. but you and i didn't click on that. there are a lot of good
10:28 am
journalists out there who didn't click on that. and i don't seem to think that that is generational, by the way. it's perspective and also experience. as you say, when things get ginned up over video that you cannot independently verify, we know to back away from that. what is the great equalizer going forward? i know you touched on it, but i want to add that again. how do we write this ship? because people are losing trust in the media fast. every day. >> i did feel like i knew enough about it to weigh in on twitter. sometimes the hardest thing to do in this fast forward culture is to wait, to not tweet comments about blog. to have put something out before you have a chance to get more perspective. its tribal warfare aspect here, harris. would it look like the kids wearing the hats where the instigators and the villains, the left went everywhere over i it. we learn more information, it looked like the kids were smeared, as president trump sai said. the right felt vindicated. but i think if people could wait
10:29 am
a little bit and tone it down, we could -- if not stop these kind of viral episodes where people's repetitions are being hurt, even their parents were attacked, i think you tone it down a little bit. but that takes some restraint. >> harris: this call for doxxing is really dangerous. putting people's personal information out there can be deadly new dress. how we curse, great to see you. thanks for bringing it down with me today. the personal attorney, rudy giuliani, is walking about the comments he made in sunday's "new york times" in which he said the president was involved in the trump tower deal until the day he won the pros 2016 presidential election. he now says those comments were hypothetical and not based on conversations he actually had with the president. here's his quote. "president trump add various conversations with michael cohen about the trump tower proposal. consult the effort and did of january 2016, and as far as president trump notes, and ended there." and ended then, i should say. senator lindsey graham is wielding his power as the newly

party controls the house judiciary committee which will be setting its own oversight agenda. >> harris: and what do you say about that? >> i think it's a political exercise by chairman graham that has a lot more to do with his own reelection campaign. he's up for reelection in the next election more than it does than the oversight by the committee. these are past actions by officials in the fbi who are gone. james comey, the director at the time. andrew mccabe, the deputy director. they are long gone from the fbi. it's really not any oversight at all. just a political exercise. >> harris: i would ask you this just as a follow-up, neil. given the lack of trust of the american people, through polling, but if you ask them on the streets, what they think right now after those peter strzok and lisa page emails at the fbi, for instance. learning that a major doj player was married to a woman who worked for tps fusion, which came up in in the anti-trump dossier. when you look at that lack of

trust, isn't it worth it to just say, "let's take a look at some of the things that we've been down." >> i think it hurts the american people's trust in her institutions more than it helps. it is obviously political and they just dismiss it all. >> harris: isn't everything political though, must be vented? >> [laughs] we have political oversight. we have political issues dominic officials that we are like. it's a good thing. we don't want the administration of justice to be disconnected from politics and the american people. >> harris: let me ask another way. is there something important that the market people still need to know about the other clinton email scandal? >> i think there are things we still don't know and if you're comfortable with. i think if senator graham conducts the investigation in a mature and deliberate way, that can only help. by the way, if he turns and it is something that seems partisan and lacking in substance, that will only hurt and mentor republicans. there is kind of a natural check on this, for chairman of every committee. when they take on investigation,
