how do you introduce the larger-than-life gmc yukon? with the world's biggest tweet. the next generation gmc yukon. premium that's made to be used. the battle for the future of the united states supreme court. president biden facing growing pressure from progressives in his own party. we want to add more justices to the bench. republicans are slamming the idea as politically motivated. what fox news live i am mike emanuel in washington. both sides are digging their heels and this is not the first time congress has debated expanding the supreme court, i move also known as court packing. we have more on the history of court packing plus a closer look at some the current political debates. good afternoon. it's connected afternoon mike it's important to members
since 1869 there but nine justices on the bench. before that it fluctuated from 852 as many as ten. this term, court packing stems from 1937 when fdr tried to change it to add more justices had favorable rulings for the new deal. but the senate rejected it overwhelmingly. but in 1983 then senator joe biden of the judiciary committee thought it was a bonehead idea. but now president biden has ordered the 36 person six month study of expanding the court. as a group of progressive democrats as you mentioned introducing a bill changing the number from nine to 13 to shake up the current 63 conservative majority. senator markey one of the bills cosponsors make clear why he believes the changes necessary. we are here because the united states supreme court is broken. the court is out of balance. too many americans view it as a partisan political institution not our impartial judicial branch of government.
but republicans are outraged introducing their own legislation to maintain the bench and nine justices. senator lindsey graham is slamming the democrats motives behind the move. >> the idea of packing the court so liberals can make it liberal rather than changing the makeup to the election process the way we have done it for a long time. so this is a very dramatic bold move it. i'll do everything in my power to stop it in the senate because it would destroy the supreme court as we know it. it will become a political football. >> justin briar one of the most liberal members on the bench since 1994 shares the opposition sink earlier this month at structural alteration motivated by the perception of politics would lead to an erosion of trust. meanwhile another at cosponsor of the bill freshman congressman jones of new york he is calling on briar at age 82 to step down.
>> thanks restarting is off. joining is now republican senator member of the senate finance and banking housing and turbines affair steven dane senator welcome. >> thank smart to have me on. how concerned are you president biden to move from studying its adding four more justices to the supreme court? >> very concerned read for wondered 52 years we've had nine justices on the supreme court. this is a power grab by the left. many of us are concerned this will destroy the foundation of our very government. remember our founding fathers they knew that government had to be restrained. it had to be contained to project the freedom and the rights of the american people. that is why we have checks and balances in our government construct. the separation of powers. so the left and now they went to court packets to add for justices to the supreme court. that would move the court dramatically to the left. but furthermore remember there really undermine the basic concept all three branches of
government. it's court packing the supreme court, its d.c. importer we can state out in the united states senate which will get them for liberal senators virtually forever. and then the executive branch she went to eliminate the electoral college and go the straight popular vote which basically puts california and new york in charge of a presidential politics and election. so you can see it is a strategy from the left to go after every one of our three branches of government they can have absolute control of a washington d.c. price make the push from the progressive left but more pressure on moderates like joe manchin and kiersten cinemas hold the line? >> it will. i am just grateful for senders like sender manchin and center cinema court looking back at the right things of our country to not be caught up in this rush to the left to make sure we think about our kids and our grandkids because if the left is successful with packing the courts, with the
changing of the united states senate by asking court more liberal senators and abolishing the electoral college we literally will have a one-party rule progressive leftist rule in washington d.c. for at least a generation break that is really dangerous for our country. our founding fathers want to see the separation of power to the restraint of government. this is a good leftist government on trade. student must talk spending. first is a massive code relief package and also the 2 trillion-dollar plus package been labeled as infrastructure. how is all of this playing back home in montana? >> i will tell you what montana and have common sense for they know you have to balance budget if you're going to make your business stay afloat. we cannot stay in this unsustainable path are federal government is on. were facing $30 trillion of debt now, mark trent it exceeds our gdp we've not seen this into world war ii we've
seen this level of debt and percentages. it is very dangerous but has got to be contained. d.c. has pushed over $6 trillion at the door the last 12 months and now biden and schumer and pelosi wants to have this massive leftist wish lists infrastructure bill there's been debate over how to pay for it democrats under chris coons of delaware chris is a white house ally. if you cannot create maybe you just don't pay for what about that? >> again there is a way we can continue to invest in infrastructure republicans have some great idea with limits but what the infrastructure is we talk about bridges and roads we talk about airports and ports and waterways, treatment systems. and there are ways with the massive amounts of dollars that we are running around the conference of washington d.c. we just need to make choices and make priorities for
infrastructure. there is a bipartisan deal to be had if the democrats will work with republicans. but we are on a single path. mike we are now grandparents of two wonderful grandchildren. i'm very concerned about their future d.c. is running up the credit card spending here running up the debt there's a day of reckoning we need to take that on now not wait for something more tragic to occur here for the destabilization of our financial markets. >> said it steve daines from the great state of montana, center thank you for your time. >> thanks mike. smith let's bring a michigan congressman kutcher the house democratic polly debbie, congressman welcome. >> good to see you this beautiful sunday afternoon price mimic absolute you heard senator daines expresses concerns about spending the next massive bill. how do you respond? >> well first of all one of them is to have corporations that have taken tax breaks and located jobs overseas to
actually pay taxes. i am going to tell you, i think we are coming, or not out of it for an michigan were still the middle of covid. but the federal reserve to affect this economy we need to invest. i think investing in our roads and bridges and investing in the pipeline. the crisis in our schools we just witnessed broadband is not available in both urban and rural areas. i think that is all critical. i have a broader definition of infrastructure look at the history of this country. we have very important programs like social security we came out of the great depression. that has become infrastructure for our seniors. if you look at what happened with the g.i. bill when we came out of world war ii and help pay for education which nothing has been proposed on
that front. it created jobs. these are really critical we are coming out of crisis time in this country. we have a lot of challenges still ahead. and i think these are investments in our country's future. >> it seems we all agree on our need to repair the road, bridges, highway and more. is there a possibility of focusing on the true infrastructure that everybody believes is infrastructure and just getting a package done on those key components? >> i would like to see us agree i'm someone who strongly believes we should try to reach across the aisle and work with people. but you are going to find we are one of the only industrial nations in the world that does not take care reverse seniors with long-term care or have kind of long term care program. it's called infrastructure and constant organization function. taking care of her seniors is critical. a long term care system is broken.
we have seen people senseless died during this covid pandemic. we see people working two jobs below the poverty line. this needs to be part of our social infrastructure as well. >> to the supreme court of her from some of the progressive colleagues about the idea of adding justices, what are your thoughts on that? schematically have common sense and i think the president has set up emission studying the issue but look at what is going to happen on that. that made it clear it's not a priority to come up in the house right now. i cannot say the way the republicans have handled. [inaudible] not having hearings on president obama makes people think the supreme court is exactly objective or nonpartisan. mike: you've been around
washington for a long time for it when the president says let's form a commission study to set a way of kicking the can down the road? >> i think right now it's a serious issue. i do take the supreme court seriously there been studies that have resulted in things that have been commissioned of kicking the can down the road. if people really think there needs to be change we can invest in this commission they can invest in those recommendations for it i am in the house at the moment we fight over some of those issues. i right now i'm home my state is in a massive surge. i have got people who are out of jobs who are scared and i want to give them for the future and if things continue because it keeps going to the courts they can't get things done. i did shooting in my district. we are having so me shooting to this country we do not even realize, we just had one in the mall on friday night proven need to something about
gun control. there are a lot of issues we need to address as a country. and in american fashion if we can get that done. mike: congressman debbie dingell from the great state of michigan thank you for your time. a lot more in all this chris wallace has a bipartisan panel with john cornyn delaware democrat chris kuhn that's coming up right after show top of the hour 2:00 p.m. eastern. minneapolis and other major american cities are bracing for a wave of unrest as the derek chauvin child comes to a close. from minneapolis, minnesota where protesters have been calling for justice and the daunte wright case. good afternoon mike. mike: good afternoon mike. overnight a couple of minnesota national guardsmen were injured when someone took some pot shots at them. as a group of guardsman's who were with a simply standing sentry at one of the neighborhoods apparently there
are ineffable white suv. the injuries received from the guardsmen were shattered glass there were no serious injuries per here where i am now brooklyn center there were demonstrations last night. no major incidents no friction with police know what mass arrest. congresswoman maxine waters inject yourself advocating george floyd policing act called republicans races totally protesters to stay in the street and get more confrontational. republicans reacted. >> her talking points on encouraging people to lash out at others is certainly not a message of unity if that's what they are about. >> no protesters have been gathering across the nation. one place dimension sacramento they are gathering regard the dante right case here in the case in chicago. police found bags of rocks at the scene vandalism for police officers were hospitalized after their hit was some kind of chemical your tempered
tomorrow addresses another flashpoint in racial tension for the nation, closing arguments in the derek chauvin murder trial, we will keep an eye on it, mike. before mike many thanks. joe may not for d.c. homicide detective and defense attorney ted williams but he's also a fox news contributor. ted welcome. >> thank you. mike: were heading towards closing arguments in the derek chauvin trial what your expectations? >> there is no doubt about it i covered for fox the o.j. simpson case many, many years ago. and i can tell you the tension then reminds me of tension and now. what i anticipate one of the things that i would want to keep front and center with this jury is that videotape that nine minutes and 29 seconds videotape.
i think that if i was them and i will take how i believe both sides should put out that argument, mike. i think the prosecution should start off with i can't breathe mama, mama i can't breathe. they should show derek chauvin with his knee on this man's neck with his son shane over his head. you can see throughout the process where derek chauvin mashed down further. they must tell the jury listen to the instructions of the judge. that it does not have to be the specific factor but it's just a substantial factor in the death of this man. they must show with their evidence what their experts are showing that derek chauvin caused the murder of george floyd. now, mike, on the other side defense. the defense must show and say
to this jury in no uncertain terms, if you find there is reasonable doubt, you must acquit. and we submit to you the evidence in which we have shown that george floyd suffered from hypertension. george floyd suffered from a bad heart. anything else george floyd suffered from having drugs in his system. and that in fact is the cause of his death. that is where they must go in order to try to show their case. >> congressman called him protesters to get more active and more confrontational, with someone with a law enforcement background, how alarming is that? >> it is alarming and it is rather frightening. i try to stay out of the political. but on the other hand we don't
need anybody out there citing these crowds. the unfortunate thing is law enforcement is trying to keep these crowds under control. that is not a very easy thing right now. mike: were nearly out of time. health partners of a rank-and-file police officers trying to do the right thing to protect and serve facing all this extra pressure right now? there's a great deal of pressure on the police department. the police department has brought on their own. others you have to look at and say, that these officers were doing their job. member this more than anything else, mike, arrested times a sort of like sausage making birds very difficult to look at. the one thing everybody sees is these video cameras. and that is just a part of the story and the whole story. mike: ted williams think is not your time. >> my pleasure. mike: manhunt underway in
wisconsin at the three people were killed and at least two other injured after shooting at a packed kenosha bar early this morning. police had the suspect that the somers tavern quote new who he was targeting. they say he had been asked to leave the bar earlier in the evening but came back and opened fire. police are reviewing surveillance video from the scene. more than 200 community members morning together at a vigil for those killed in the shooting at the fedex warehouse. for the eight people were in the community with some religious leaders joining city officials to call for gun reform. so far these have not released a motive for the shooting. president biden mix a stunning admission. what he's saying about the southern border after the break. retirement is an opportunity to fill each tomorrow

interference in the 20 election. moscow linked cyber attack and russian annexation. this welcomes us thousands of russian troops mass on ukrainian border and spirit if russia invasion into ukraine it could ultimately dragon other world powers. mike: thanks a lot trey. during self correction to this of the top stories of spring in king's college senior fellow constitutional attorney mark smith who served on the trump campaign condition team the way commitment, gentlemen welcome. thanks good to be here. matt started so biden imposing sanctions by kicking up some american diplomats, how do you read this cold war like tension? statement there is no question that things with russia are about as bad as they've been since end of of the cold war. that is because of vladimir putin is acting like a thug. he is slowly killing alexei
navalny as you saw on that peace he's amassing troops on the border produced cracking on dissent internally. the united states is responding now under president biden ways we have not last for years. president trump basically told latimer putin he can do whatever he wants but he believed in whatever he said it was m by the no's. and now the united states back bear allies are responding appropriately. >> mark what is your take on the back and forth with moscow and is present biden in the right thing? >> russian the end of the day punish one critical way. that is the price of oil and gas, that is our major export that is how they make their money. if you want to punish asha for real in not symbolically, and the way to do it issue make america energy independent in all respects. thereby driving down the price of gas and oil across the globe, punishing the russians. that is how you do it.
everything short of that frankly is not going to be as effective. mike: there's also concerned about putin's intentions when it comes to ukraine, this instantly a first major foreign policy tests for president biden? yes there's a bunch of other ones as well reported by iranians attacking our troops or our citizens in iraq. we've got china threatening taiwan. got north korea always rested and this is just what presidents confront. often pricey stack up like this. but there is no doubt 80000 russian troops on ukrainian border is a serious, serious crisis. it's good that we finally have the world kind of a line behind us and confronting russia. >> okay to a domestic issue unites a supreme court republicans warming democrats may be trying to pack the court with more justices, take a listen to texas senator ted cruz.
>> the congressional democrats are cheering joe biden on to pack the court. and if they succeed in packing the court, we would have a radical left supreme court that would take away our fundal mental rights to free speech rights religious liberty rights to the second amendment. all of those rights hang in the balance. mark mark constitutional guy your thoughts. >> will president trump has one tremendous accomplishment for his legacy will go down all time is grace accomplishment that is appointing three justices to the u.s. supreme court. the democrats are engagingly i think is really a merit garland revenge to work for the trying to everything in the power to discredit the legacy of donald trump are the only way they can do with the current composition the supreme court is to pack it which is entirely unpopular. bear in mind plus he's politically savvy. she knows in about 18 months because are the democrats will lose control of the united
states house. so to the extent we democrats want to dream this generation the supreme court liberal radicals, now's the time for them to act. because in 18 months are unlikely to control the house not be able to have the policy objective which is to pack the court with the role tourists. >> present biden city setting the issue set for permission to do that your thoughts on that? is that really just putting this offer later? statement it is. there is a serious problem with mark's theory is that your policy last week so that bill is not going anywhere to change the composition of the court. she has no intention of doing the things he said she has an intention of issuing that very clear publicly. there are some of the caucus and want to do that. there are plenty in the republican caucus and want to all things as well. the very, very unlikely to change and president biden's clear about who pack the court. when justice gilligan died
there was 11 months until the election they would not before the garland nomination ginsburg died there's five weeks before the election and now we have income we bear. so court packing what one direction us by the. mark smith, mike bennett, general thanks. thank you thank you. the grueling three-day challenges coming to a close. live look at the final day of this year's best ranger competition after the break if you printed out directions to get here today, you're in the right place.

helicopter. this dummy soldier had its leg amputated and these guys really had to get in there quickly while they were stimulated and meet fire and pray to get this 75-pound dummy up to these obstacle courses and onto a stretcher so they could get that soldier onto a helicopter and medical assistance. that was pretty cool to see these guys do that. these are combat zone scenarios that these guys would have to play out. whether they were in war zones. pretty cool to see that and see these guys work under very stressful situations. submit army rangers total studs on the same thanks so much. big challenges the coed pandemic now and rest. to business owners will tells how they are handling it all next.
