♪ ♪ >> good sunday afternoon. we have all kinds of breaking information this hour. michael bloomberg appears to have just kicked off his presidential campaign with an apology, heading to a black church to say he's sorry for his policies when he was mayor. a louvre report on that coming up -- a live report on that coming up. there's also a lot of issues president trump is working on, we're committed to diving deep on actual issues that impact your life. so we have an exclusive interview. peter navarro, the president's trade adviser, on how close we are or not to getting a deal with china. but we begin with fresh reaction this sunday from lawmakers on the hill as they move into the second big week of
9:01 am
public hearings on the impeachment inquiry. hello and welcome to america's news headquarters, i'm e henry. eight -- ed henry. eight officials about to testify tuesday through thursday. democrats and republicans continue to disagree on the impact of the testimony we've already heard from three career diplomats, and guess what? chairman adam schiff gave a big speech yesterday thank, yes, the resistance and calling the president a charlatan. can he really be fair? we'll explore that question this hour. plus, does any of this rise to the level of impeachable to footballs -- offenseses? >> i don't think the evidence is building at all. and i'm being sincere in this. i think the evidence is crumbling. we went from some supposed quid pro quo and, as you said, tying these investigations to withholding military aid, but we microphone know that didn't happen. and now ms. pelosi say we're going to impeach and remove the president for bribery. >> there is no ample evidence out there, you know, that there was a corrupt deal being cooked up. we will hear from at least two
9:02 am
firsthand witnesses, right? ambassador sondland, as you talked about, we know what he's already said in his revised testimony when he refreshed his recollection. he basically said, yeah, that's what was happening. ed: we have fox team coverage this morning. kevin corke live at the white house, but we begin with mark meredith in washington. good to see you, mark. >> reporter: it's going to be a busy week here in washington for lawmakers as they prepare to hold more hearings into this impeachment inquiry. this week, as you mentioned, eight people are expected to testify public my before the house intelligence committee. testimony does resume on tuesday, and it's going to be a busy day as the committee is going to hear from jennifer williams as well as lieutenant colonel alexander vindman from the national security council. also tuesday kurt volker, former special envoy to ukraine and tim morrison, a former white house aid with the national security council. but many here in washington are looking ahead to wednesday when
9:03 am
gordon sondland is scheduled to testify. he amended his testimony after other witnesses gave their account of what was happening with the foreign aid money to ukraine. now some lawmakers are questioning if the ambassador, who's believed to have had multiple interactions with the president over ukraine, will be a credible witness on wednesday. >> i think he's got to decide this weekend whether he's an american first or a trump loyalist. i'm not sure that we can trust his testimony given the fact that we know it's already changed. >> reporter: house republicans say after what they saw this past week, they believe the impeachment inquiry is a political stunt. we heard from the house minority whip this torning, steve scalise, blasting democrats for hand picking which witnesses could testify while refusing to grant some gop lawmaker requests. >> there are a lot of people who worked in the trump administration who have very countering views to that, and they've not been allowed to come forward. so it's nice that some people can say one thing about a thirdhand information phone
9:04 am
call, there's something else that other people can counter that with, and they haven't been allowed to come forward. >> reporter: house speaker nancy pelosi says president trump has the right to make his case before the committee and defend his actions if he wanted to. pelosi was also asked about the timing of all this, ed, and she says she has no idea how much longer the inquiry may last. ed: let's keep it rolling. president trump complaining about a lack of due process in the public impeachment inquiry so far, so let's continue our team coverage. down on pennsylvania avenue -- or up, i suppose -- to kevin corke live at the white house. >> reporter: good to be with you, ed. the white house continuing to push back against the idea that the musings of career government employees should supersede the will of the president or, for that matter, his policies. but that said, there are still some democrats on capitol hill that continue to aim at what they say is a pattern of corruption corroborated by officials who have expressed concern about the president's alleged push for an investigation into the bidens. that includes, as you pointed out, a number of current and
9:05 am
former officials. but the white house said this about the latest hearings on friday, this is from stephanie grisham. it's difficult to imagine a greater waste of time than today's hearings and yet, unfortunately, we expect more of the same partisan political theater next week from house democrats. now, for his part, the president said the man behind the, quote, sham impeachment, adam schiff, is being not only unfair to him, but also to the american people, and they know it. >> and i'll tell you about what tampering is. tampering is when a guy like shifty schiff doesn't let us have lawyers. tampering is when schiff doesn't let us have witnesses, doesn't let us speak. and it's really sad when you see people not allowed do questions. it's totally -- nobody's ever had such horrible due process. there was no due process. and i think it's, i think it's considered a joke all over washington and all over the world. >> reporter: a lot of big names coming up in the testimony that we're looking forward to, vindman, hill, morrison, william, all headed to the
9:06 am
capitol for testimony this week, ed. ed: we'll be watching, covering it live here on the fox news channel with you. kevin, quick question about what happened yesterday. so it appeared to be sort of an unscheduled visit to walter reed medical center for the president, the white house seems to suggest no big deal. all kinds of speculation from his critics. what's the truth? >> reporter: well, the bottom line is this, and you know this from your experience, the president goes to walter reed on a fairly regular occasion, usually to talk to troops. what was unusual about this was, apparently, this trip was also part of his annual check-up. this was not on the schedule, by the way, i should point that out. but as you also said to hear them tell it, the white house says there's nothing to see here. let me share part of a statement. the president remains healthy without complaints as demonstrated by his repeated vigorous rally performances in front of thousands of americans several times a week. it goes on to say the president stopped by to say hello and share his thanks to the
9:07 am
outstanding care they provide to our wounded war corpseses and wish them an early happy that's. they say nothing there. we'll keep an eye on it for you. ed: kevin corke, thank you as well. >> he does not intimidate the whistleblower. so the president could come right before the committee and talk, speak all the truth that he wants -- >> you don't expect him -- >> if he wants to take the oath of office, or he could do it in writing. he has every opportunity to present his case. ed: this morning the house speaker, nancy pelosi, on cbs opening the door for the president to maybe state his case before the house as he continues to demand to get a chance to face his original accuser in the whistleblower, as you heard there. let's bring in our panel, gianno caldwell, author of the brand new book "taken for granted," check it out. and is jason nicholss, a democrat we like to talk to every now and again. welcome to the show, gentlemen. >> thank you.
9:08 am
ed: gianno, if the president continues to say he wants to process, he wants -- due process, he wants to face his accuser, why not come before the committee in some way? do you think it'd be wise for the president maybe to answer some questions from the intelligence committee? >> well, the truth of the matter is if we're not seeing fairness in this process that was before us last week, why would we expect there to be any level of fairness with this president if he were to come before the committee? i gotta give it to the democrats, to be honest with you, ed, i've never seen a group of political folks who are willing to go to the extremes to win an election, and that's what this is. for anyone who's willing to be honest about what we saw last week, this was nothing more than a counterpart to the democrats' 2020 election strategy. when you bring in a number of witnesses -- none who can say that this president unequivocally did something wrong, illegal or even impeachable for that matter, then you know exactly what this is. five, six hours of television a
9:09 am
day, that's a political drama and a boring one at that. ed: jason, what needs to happen, to gianno's point, differently this in week two? every one of those, quote-unquote, star witnesses when pressed said they saw nothing illegal or impeachable. >> i don't know that they said -- they didn't actually make any judgments in terms of -- ed: well, hang on, i'm going to let you speak. but -- >> that's not their job. ed: pardon me, john ratcliffe asked bill taylor as i recall last wednesday, anything impeachable? he didn't answer initially, then he gave a longer thing that never said he believed there was anything impeachable. and quickly, the body on friday -- the ambassador on friday, she was asked did you see anything illegal? no. she says that under oath. so i just want to correct the record when you say, no, that never happened. they were asked those direct questions. now, maybe more evidence will come out, and i am going to give you a chance to speak now, jason, but so far they said, as gianno said, nothing illegal, nothing impeachable. what's going to change this
9:10 am
week? >> again, ooh i'm going to -- i'm going to disagree because yo van slip was asked directly, are you talking about impeachment? she's like that's not my job, i'm a diplomat. that's a political decision, that's not one i would make. so i don't think that that's what they were doing. they were just talking about what it is that they know, what it is they heard first and secondhand. and i think they were very convincing. we've never seen someone get up and get a standing ovation from the people who were present. because -- ed: well, that may have just been democrats in the room who were hearing on -- the resistance. that doesn't mean that they succeeded. >> i don't think so. we've seen the polls have not shifted one bit. they've stayed at about 50% for impeachment and removal even on fox news polls. [inaudible conversations] ed: let gianno in here. jason's saying the polls haven't moved. i thought the democrats wanted the polls to move in their direction -- >> not at all. ed: if they're staying still -- >> first and foremost, i think jason is getting his dnc talking
9:11 am
points late to the game. truthfully speaking, the polls have changed. 52% of americans believe democrats are botching the impeachment inquiry. we know that already. and further, we see what's going on, what the whole attempt with this impeachment case to create a cloud over president trump so he can be defeated in 2020. we talk about the results this administration has created for african-americans, the opioid crisis, the economy, any number of issues. it puts them in a very difficult position for them to win any election. you've seen further there's people still trying to jump into an election when it's a matter of months away. you know they feel they're in trouble. this is the vehicle that they're choosing to use as a part of their election strategy to -- ed: all right. as gianno mentions the election, and that's the elephant in the room. i'm going to give you a chance to respond, jason, but i want you both to hear from a key player, a democrat, adam schiff. he takes a pause, a timeout between week one and week two to spend part of his weekend where
9:12 am
gianno is, out in california -- [laughter] guess what he a had to say? is he being fair and impartial? i'll let you decide. >> our democracy is at risk more so now than at any time in my life. the most grave threat to the life and health of our democracy comes from within, from a president without ethical compass. two years ago i stood before you and i urged you to resist, and you did. but we are more than a resistance now, we are a majority. we are a majority in one house, and we will become the majority in the other, and we will send, we will send that charlatan in the white house back to golden throne he came from. [cheers and applause] ed: jason, i've been around politics a long time. i'm not a neophyte, i get it. everyone wants to win the next election, but he's holding these hearings, and they're supposed to be fair, and he's calling the president a charlatan? how can he do that? >> well, again, i don't think it's his job not to be partisan
9:13 am
any more than it is jim jordan's job not to be partisan. i think he has a view, and he's trying to actually see what actually happened, and that's why he's interviewing the people that -- ed: jim jordan -- [inaudible] let him finish, and then you'll go. of course he's not the chairman. as a matter of fact, he's not even on the committee, but he's allowed to sit in. at any rate, i think that he doesn't have to be nonpartisan. and this, you know, the people -- ed: but hang on, on that point, jason, people have been talking about all these legendary lawmakers in watergate who were reaching across the aisle. they were trying at least to work together, and you're now telling me he doesn't have to be nonpartisan, he can be all -- how are you going to get the country behind you in. >> this is not about -- well, first of all, as i said, about 50 percent of the country is behind impeachment, and this isn't about partisan issues. we would like to reach out, i think, to republicans -- >> that's not what you just said. >> republicans are not willing
9:14 am
to reach back -- >> jason, that's not what you just said. >> he's talking about him being a charlatan and about the president having committed -- ed: let's give gianno a fair chance. >> jason, that's not what you just a said. you said he has every right to be partisan -- >> you going got it. >> i agree with you. he's being completely and totally partisan. there has not been any brand of fairness -- [inaudible conversations] ed: you're going to be next, i promise. >> come on, bro, bro, bro, come on, bro -- [laughter] there hasn't been any fairness when it comes to these hearings. you talked about the resistance, they've been resisting working with the trump administration on a number of issues, the usmca, a lot of legislative things that could have been happening in our country, but democrats have chosen to remove a dually elected president. ed: all right. we'll give you a fair chance there, jason, because on that point i thought your party was elected in the midterms, taking
9:15 am
back the house. on those kitchen table issues, whether it's usmca and trade which nancy most pelosi hasn't finished working with the president, we're going to have peter navarro later talking about that. but the economy, health care, all these issues, instead you seem focused on impeachable. >> again, there have been many things that have passed, even things that should have been passed bipartisan like infrastructure that mitch mcconnell has blocked. they don't want to give the house any kind of victories when it comes to legislation. and as far as people jumping into the race at a late date, it's because they see that this president is vulnerable. >> no, they see that they have a weak field. that's a weak field. >> he's got his taxes coming out. we see the shadow diplomacy e coming from giuliani and sondland. we see all of these issues, and a lot of the people who are going to be testifying next week are not big left-wing partisan people. we're talking about williams, we're talking about tim morrison, and these are people who are corroborating everything that you heard last week.
9:16 am
ed: all right. >> so i think the president -- ed: i've got to give you credit, you're throwing the kitchen sink at the president this time -- >> man, he's dumping the whole truck. ed: last point for gianno, are democrats getting in? i've heard we've got a really strong field, any one of these candidates can beat the president. why is michael bloomberg, january know, and deval patrick getting in so late? >> let's be very clear, the president has accomplished a number of things, and the democrats have taken the american people for granted, as i write about in my new book. and the reason you have so many democrats jumping in, people like barack obama hasn't even endorsed his own -- or even showed up with his own vice president. ed: yeah. >> that's pretty telling. i think there's a lot of people concerned, and i know poem account crass -- democrats have realize that the field currently would not be able to -- ed: the former president says he doesn't want to interfere with the primaries, but he did say he
9:17 am
thinks the party may be going too far to the left. we'll have you back, jason, to talk about that. gianno, good luck with the new book. >> thanks a lot. ed: all right. a potential setback for the president in the deep south. the republican challenger for louisiana governor who he had been helping to a democratic incumbent despite the president hosting those big rallies. what this may mean in the big picture for 2020 or maybe it's a whole lot of nothing. we'll talk about it next. ♪ i'm your 70lb st. bernard puppy, and my lack of impulse control, is about to become your problem. ahh no, come on. i saw you eating poop earlier. hey! my focus is on the road, and that's saving me cash with drivewise. who's the dummy now? whoof! whoof! so get allstate where good drivers save 40% for avoiding mayhem, like me. sorry! he's a baby!

ed: welcome back. voters in louisiana reelecting the governor, john bel edwards, the a second term in a runoff yesterday. the rate democrat their'ly -- narrowly beating back a challenge from his republican challenger. caste city steigel, our correspondent, in live in baton rouge with reaction. how close was it? >> reporter: ed, it was pretty close. that 51% victory for the democrats here translates into a little more than 40,300 vote or so. it's not down to 1 or 2,000 as a lot of the analysts and the polls had even suggested going into this.
9:22 am
for instance, similar situation here in louisiana that they had in kentucky. but no doubt the numbers showed democrats turned out in force to keep their incumbent governor for a second term, john bel edwards. numbers from the sec air of state this morning -- secretary of state show 42% of runoff voters were democrat versus 31% republican. 27% listed themselves as other. the republican challenger, self-made millionaire businessman eddie rispone, campaigned on largely getting louisiana back to its conservative roots. and though he did not pull out a win last night, he at least thanked his supporters for a shot at it. >> we have nothing to be ashamed of. we had over 700,000 people in louisiana really want with something better and something different. [cheers and applause] >> we both agreed that the time for campaigning is over, and now our shared love for louisiana is always more important than the
9:23 am
partisan differences that sometimes divide us. [cheers and applause] and as for the president, god bless his heart. >> reporter: that, obviously, a bit of a jab at president trump there because he was so visible in this state prior to the campaign. so far publicly president trump has not commented, tweeted publicly about the loss on the gop side here in louisiana last night. ed: well, casey, what is the trump effect? i mean, at least what people are saying on the ground, because these special elections and runoffs in off-year elections, they can sometimes give as a window of what may happen in the presidential, or it just may be local issues or a whole lot of nothing. >> reporter: well, a lot of analysts that you talk to on the ground here, political science professors and the like say that there is no doubt that eddie rispone did as well as he did
9:24 am
and got as far as he did because of president trump's support. you talked about the two rallies? there were three in the course of a month or so. two back to back weeks here in louisiana. president trump came down here to energize the gop base leading up to this election. after all, while he was a very successful businessman in the state of louisiana, rispone has never held public office, he had little to no name recognition prior to trump propelling him center stage. so at the end of the day, it was not enough, and this is considered a defeat not only against rispone, but against the president here in louisiana as well. ed: all right. casey steagall live on the ground for us, the president's been making the case that he got the incumbent close to winning but both times, kentucky and louisiana, did not win. the u.s. and south korea have agreed to postpone a join
9:25 am
military exercise. u.s. defense secretary mark mark esper saying he hopes it will help lead to north korea finally ending its nuclear program. >> we have made this decision as an act of goodwill to contribute to an environment conducive to diplomacy and the advancement of peace. we encourage the dprk to demonstrate the same goodwill and to consider its decisions on conducting training, exercises and testing. ed: but almost immediately north korea saying it's got no plans to negotiate unless the u.s. offers to discuss withdrawing what it calls hostile policies against pyongyang. but the president tweeted a short time ago responding to north korea's regime calling joe biden a, quote-unquote, rabid dog. the president tweeting he, biden, actually somewhat better than that and hinting at a possible meeting with kim jong un adding, you should act quickly, get the deal done, see you soon. is there a third summit in the works after singapore and hanoi? we shall see. >> in the meantime, new hope for

9:34 am
assistant to the president, director of the office of trade and manufacturing policy. good afternoon, sir. >> ed, my friend, let's enjoy. ed: i look forward to having you on. let's start first with that tweet from the president. i know you've gone back and forth on this many times. when the president said congratulations, good luck, there's going to be a lot more cash in everybody's pocket, how do you make that case that the tariffs mean more cash for the average consumer, for the average farmer when, as you know, the president and the federal government have had to come up with all these subsidies to help farmers out, because some of them have been struggling? >> ed, the history of the negotiations has been china trying to bully american farmers as a way of pressuring the president, and he's having none of it. he worked with secretary of agriculture sonny perdue to make sure the farmers are doing great. they are. large farmers, small farmers, everyone in between. and that's been an important part of these negotiations. so that's all good. eded ed okay. so -- ed: okay, so yesterday we're told there was maybe some more
9:35 am
talks on phase one. we've been hearing of a bigtime deal with china for a long time. where are we? >> let me describe where phase one is. several things we've been trying to get to in a big deal. phase one includes, most importantly, protections for intellectual property. there's some good stuff on forced technology transfer, there's market access for financial services in china which is things like banks and credit cards. and, yes, for our farmers there's a big ticket item for purchases from the chinese. what i can tell you also, ed, is that the tip of president trump's spear is the united states trade rep, robert lighthizer. he had talks friday night at 7 p.m. with his counterpart. these talks continue to be constructive. but my lighthizer rule is all negotiations should be behind closed doors, so we're on a glide path to a deal.
9:36 am
as president trump said, let's see what happens. ed: well, you're saying a couple things there. i mean, let's see what happens, that keeps the door open this may drag on, as you know. and you used that grade glide path, so i know you don't want to be completely pinned down here, but are we talking about a deal by the end of the year? >> i think the important thing here, and i've said this many times on the air, is that let's let robert lighthizer and the president do their thing. they're the best negotiators in the world. the worst thing that can happen is for this deal to be negotiated in public or speculated unduly in the press. that will slow things down. so let's see what happens. ed: okay. but you feel like you're making progress, real quick on that. >> oh, there's no question, ed, that progress is being made. i mean, robert lighthizer is the best trade representative we've ever had. working with this president, we've gotten deals across the board with japan -- and, by the way, that u.s./mexico/canada
9:37 am
agreement is locked and loaded, ready for nancy pelosi to pull the trigger. if she would stop trying to unseat a duly elected president for a few minutes, we'd get that done for farmers, ranchers, workers and manufacturers. ed: yep. >> and, you know, one of the problems here in the swamp is these people don't seem to be able to walk and chew gum at the same time. ed: that's interesting, because you bring me to my next topic which was going to be usmca. i did my homework, and i saw a few weeks ago you charged that nancy pelosi, quote, fiddles while the usmca is in the deep freeze. >> stand by that one. ed: clearly, based on what you said. but i want to update it because speaker pelosi, in fairness to her, a couple of days ago said that a deal on that could finally be imminent. is she just all talk? because on the other hand, she's doing impeachment, as you say, or are we closer to a deal on usmca? >> y'all have no cattle expression out west. i don't know.
9:38 am
