republicans are placing the president above the oath of office, if it were barack obama i would vote to impeach him. >> full house expected to take up articles on impeachment on wednesday and likely impeach president trump before christmas, in january all eyes will turn to the senate for a trial, the top senate democrat wants to subpoena several senior trump administration officials many who failed to show up for testimony despite subpoenas. acting white house chief of staff mick mulvaney, former national security john bolton, associate director for national security, michael duffy, robert blare, if the senate fails to impeach and remove the president, house intelligence tells fox news he won't consider it a failure, fox news poll in late october found that 49% of respondents favored impeaching president trump and removing him from office with margin of error

schiff repeatedly made false statements to the american people and that's why democrats have been rushing from keeping this from unraveling, i wouldn't want to bank my -- heather: inspector general michael horowitz gearing up for new round of testimony in capitol hill, he would be grilled for a second time on wednesday about his probe into the fbi's russia investigation, he found no political bias but he did uncover evidence of some serious errors made by the bureau when securing a warrant to surveil a trump campaign adviser. and now all eyes are shifting to federal prosecutor john durham, his investigation into the probe will reportedly wrap up by the spring. well, president trump hinting at jail time for james comey after the former fbi director admits he was wrong for the fisa process, comey appearing on fox
news just days after the inspector general report was released detailing 17 mistakes the fbi made when applying for the warrant. >> he's right, there was real sloppiness, 17 things that should have been in the application, discussed or characterized differently, he's right, i was wrong. heather: president trump tweeting, quote, from now comey is admitting he was wrong, wow, but he's only doing so because he got caught red handed, he was actually caught a long time ago, so what are the consequences for his unlawful conduct, could it be years in jail, where are the apologies to me and others, jim? well fox news contributor trey gowdy says admission of mistake in his department mean absolutely nothing after all we know now. >> sometimes it's better late than never and sometimes it's too damn late, two years too
late, we could have use his objectivity, head of the fbi helping republicans instead of obstructing us. he said it was a policy and procedure issue, it's not, that's not new. those aren't new policies, this is a personnel issue. it's the wrong people in the wrong positions of power, that's not going to be fictioned with -- fixed with new policy or procedure but replacing people -- heather: how about some football now, week 15, the bills clinching a playoff spot after beating steelers 17-10 in defensive battle. the falcons 29-22 by scoring with 2 second left in the game.

heather: in a letter obtained exclusively by fox news, navy to be armed, we aren't doing enough to protect american heros, he joins us now to weigh in, thank you very much for joining us, jim, appreciate it. >> good to be with you. heather: let's look at the portion of the letter, navy pilots to be armed on base,
reprehensible of civilian life enforcement whose physical fitness and training falls short of the standard service members, so what is your take on this? >> i think it's absurd for military bases to essentially be gun free zones, it would be hard to find a place where more people are trained to properly use firearms, to give you an idea how silly it is, when i was stationed at fort lewis parent i could carry a concealed arm on base, i don't think that makes sense at all. you add additional training because it's a different type of use of weapons for personnel safety and you make sure at least one person in every group of military personnel is armed. heather: so i was going to say, you don't mean that everyone at every base should be armed, right? >> no, i don't think you need to do that but i think it's crazy to go ahead and have groups of
military folks who we know are targets for terrorists, unarmed in the face of that kind of a threat, there's no reason for it, there's no justification for it and we need to do better. heather: who do you start with? >> you can take anyone from comes from combat mos, the ones that do most of the actual point of the spear, fighting, give them additional training as to how to use a weapon, how to conduct yourself when armed in a more civilian circumstance which is a military in the u.s. is more civilian than a war zone, and then go ahead and have one person, nco or officer in every group of people, whether it's a classroom, whether it's a training site or whether it's just at the unit at large. heather: what type of steps need to be taken as well, though, to keep this from happening to begin with when you take a look at the person that did this shooting, the manifestos that he wrote supposedly he hated americans for crimes against
muslims and humanity? >> obviously the vetting procedures failed on the saudi side and trust side. we don't want to stop training with foreign troops because we get a lot of benefit from that but we absolutely cannot allow someone who has ill intentions that were demonstrated somewhat publicly to get into the united states and that proximity to our troops. heather: speaking with foreign troops, the trump administration expected to withdraw up to 4,000 troops from afghanistan, that could begin as early as this week. do you think the president can achieve his goal of withdrawing all of these troops by the 2020 election? >> the president can achieve that goal by ordering it to be done, the question is it a good idea and i think it is. at this point, the military is far too invested on a war that's closing in on the second decade. we have made no real noticeable achievements since we deposed the taliban almost 18 years ago,
when you have no plan for victory and no real way to achieve it and you are trying to avoid losing, you need to take the tide and go ahead and get out. heather: 12 to 13,000 troops, they expect withdrawal 4,000, that will leave 8 and 9,000 still there. jim hanson, thank you very much for joining us, we always appreciate your expertise. have a great day. time now is about 19 minutes after the top of the hour and behind the scenes look at a christmas tradition. >> what is your favorite thing about being a rockette? >> i would say the sisterhood. heather: radio city rockettes and they take us backstage on this christmas spectacular

[laughter] >> we are right outside radio city music hall and it is christmas time, so we are kicking to high gear and see what it takes to become a rock rockette. you guys bring so much joy, what

[laughter] carley: a lot of fun. heather: time now is almost half past the top of the hour and james comey admits that there were mistakes in the fbi's handling of the fisa probe. >> he's right, i was wrong, i was overconfident in the procedures that the fbi and
justice had built over 2 years, it was not acceptable and so he's right, i was wrong. heather: is this proof that bias did exist in the fbi, our panel will debate next, jumping ship after a democrat against impeachment plans to become a republican, growing backlash from colleagues on capitol hill. . pick an order, print everything you need, slap the label onto the box, and it's ready to go. our costs for shipping were cut in half. just like that. shipstation. the #1 choice of online sellers. go to shipstation.com/tv and get 2 months free.

>> let me speak directly to our counterparts in north korea. it is time for us to do our jobs. let's get this done. we are here and you know how to reach us. >> announcement came a day after north korea conducted what it called a crucial test and overnight defense secretary mark esper arriving in belgium that's where he will attend 75th anniversary with the battle of the bulge, h will honor american soldiers who fought 6-week battle that stopped german offensive during world war ii, expected to start in just a few minutes. also happening today new york city bill de blasio be honor advocates that convinceed compensation funds, he would present them with bronze
medallions b, highest civic honor. went to congress over the past decade to share how critical the funding s finally last summer congress extended the funding for all 9/11 first responders through 2092. well, former director james comey now changing his views on how the fisa report was handled by the fbi during a tense interview on fox news sunday. >> i was wrong, i was overconfident as director in our procedures, it's incredible by hard to get a fisa, real sloppiness, 17 things that should have been in the applications or discussed or characterized differently, it was not acceptable. heather: is there proof that there was bias in the fbi, principals project terry and democratic political analyst kelly, thank you both for joining us, we appreciate it this morning.
heather: does this proof that there was bias? >> absolutely, this is so embarrassing for our nation, you know, the fbi is supposed to be the nation's top cop, leading law enforcement agency and this entire report is so damming, the two things that horowitz said at his hearing that really stuck out to me were that these mistakes were due to either gross incompetence or -- gross negligence. >> that's not the case. >> we need to do full review of the fbi and all the other mistakes that they have been involved with. heather: horowitz did say that his report, ig report does not vindicate anyone. >> well, i think what he said was false narrative, when we look at ig report shows 400 page report debunk president's opinion that there was some kind of bias, that there was no bias,
was there mistakes, absolutely, things should have been done differently but that doesn't mean that there's anything wrong with the report itself. >> kelly, that contradicts exactly what horowitz said, he said the mistake -- >> that's in the true. >> he used those words in the hearing. >> he did not say that there was intentionality, mistakes made, he did not say any intentional ity. that's not the case. heather: clearly -- >> false narrative. heather: clearly there was evidence that was not included, there was evidence that perhaps could have either shortened the investigation or perhaps the fisa warrant would not have been repeated 3 times over. >> well, what it shows at the fbi there was sufficient evidence for it, that just because the ig report basically established that there was sufficient legal evidence for the russian probe. >> no, no, hold on, i feel like it's opposite day, comey was
just on -- we should require much more of the fbi, they are the top cop,s if this is the mistake with the impeachment of the united states, imagine how many other people that they are screwing over here. heather: kelly, i will ask you that, does that bother you that we are talking about the impeachment of the president of the united states and that it was found in this ig report and there's still more reports to come including john durham's report which could result in criminal charges and clearly said the ig report that the use of unverified information compiled by christopher steele in the dossier was used for
these fisa warrants and as i said 3 times. >> right, well, as i stated before the ig report basically says that it was valid and legally sufficient and ironic now that trump is going after comey and comey basically helped trump get elected. kind of ironic. [laughter] >> look, i want to go back something, so horowitz said the other day that no one that touched this case has been vindicated but i think that in all this coming out with the mistakes that comey has owned up to, there's one person that was vindicated and that's president trump and -- >> so not true. >> his decision to fire james comey was the best decision and it was one of his first decisions he made coming into office and abundantly clear now that that was long overdue, james comey should have had nothing to do with the fbi and that's what this ig report makes abundantly clear. >> i totally disagree with you. heather: thank you so much for joining us, we appreciate you both joining us and both of your
viewpoints. thank you. >> thank you, happy holidays. heather: merry christmas. feeling the burn, 2020 candidate bernie sanders facing backlash at one of his rallies. >> we now have a president who is kind of admiring -- >> come on. heather: this isn't the first time he's been called out by a trump supporter, plus the patriots playing defense add videographer caught filming their opponents, the new spygate in the nfl.
