>> todd: a federal judge granted donald trump's -- brooke singman, good morning. >> brooke: good morning, guys, that ruling by the federal judge approves appointment of a special master trump asked for and puts pause on the review of the seized documents. the court temporarily joins the government for investigative purposes pending completion of the special master's review or further court order. cannon orders the documents to be reviewed. according to inventory, the department took 11,000
2:10 am
documents, only 100 were marked with classification and seized empty folders and also include trump's medical documents, correspondence related to taxes and accounting information. the former president raged against what he sees as a double standard saying they rifled through the living quarters of my 16-year-old barron and melania. common theft pointed out in the laptop from hell and elsewhere, they never raided or broke into the house of hunter biden or the house of joe biden. ranking member of the house oversight committee, james comer called the ruling monumental. >> it benefits the president a lot, i don't think the president
2:11 am
would have been granted special master had the doj had all their i's dotted and t's crossed. this was a big victory for donald trump. >> the former president's legal task is tasked with working with the justice department for candidates for the special master. >> carley: let's bring in mark smiths, good morning, great to see you. what is your take on the appointment of this special master and where do things go from here? >> obviously from a public relation point of view, this is a huge victory for president trump, because department of justice said they did not want a special master appointed because it was not needed because the department of justice could be trusted to filter through the relevant information and anything that should not be turned over to the investigative
2:12 am
team would be set aside, you have independent federal judge saying, i will not agree, we need independent third party with no connection to the department of justice to make this determination. the other interesting thing is apparently some documents were exposed improperly to the investigative team and the judge said i cannot trust the department of justice to do the job itself and we need an independent person in here, again, it is a blow to doj, it is a win for donald trump. >> todd: the doj is complaining this will delay this process, mark, why are they in such a rush here when investigators like say the durham investigation are taking a very long time? >> i'm not really sure the doj is really in a rush at the end
2:13 am
of the day because president trump has been out of office for a year and a half, which is not exactly a fast time and they have been talking about the documents for about 18 months so what is the rush? i'm not sure there is a rush, but certainly that was their position in court in front of this federal judge, they want to move with speed because it is so important, why did it take 18 months if this is so important? not like the documents were unknown, they have known about this. are they moving with speed? it is not so clear. >> carley: start of the saga right now, jump to the end, how do you see this playing out and do you think the former president will face charges as relates to the documents? >> i'm not sure he's going to be indicted, remember sometimes the lingering concern about being indicted or charged with a crime
2:14 am
is punishment in and of itself, mere fact they were having this conversation today about whether or not president trump is going to be charged with a crime demonstrates in terms of public relations political point of view, it is something we're talking about, we're not talking about the midterm, we're talking about president trump who hasn't been president going toward two years and we're still talking about him. how does this play out? there is question of what will happen in the court system. i'm skeptical they will charge him, but in terms of the political ramifications we'll keep talking about this because he is former president of the united states and potential future presidential candidate. it will remain in the headline. >> todd: republicans need to keep the messaging on the economy and the border and the like. one word that jumped out yesterday from this judge, taxes, mentioned trump's
2:15 am
acc taxes were taken. could there be connection between the tax discussions? >> at the beginning of this country, our founding fathering wrote the constitution, were concerned with general warrants, which when british soldiers go into a person's home and go through all aspectss looking for evidence of unspecified crime, that is why we have the fourth amendment to the u.s. constitution today. look at the warrant request, they said if you see anything relating to four years president trump was president in any respect, you should take that and that is apparently what happened at mar-a-lago, that is not consistent with the fourth amendment, seems to be general warrant of the thingor founding fathers were worried about, to limit power and protect individual liberties.
2:16 am
>> carley: the judge said it had to do with tax accounting and medical records, that doesn't have anything to do with the national archives. mark, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> carley: breaking right now, hundreds of firefighters trying to contain massive fire ravaging southern california, we'll an update on the progress. and pointing out serious questions that need to be answered about hunter biden. joe concha is here next.

2:24 am
by the fbi, this should not be a partisan issue. seems proper, right? joe concha joins us. that reporter got attacked by the liberal left overwhat she said, which is factual, what is your reaction to the outrage she's facing this morning? >> joe: we said the saying before from die hard, welcome to the parties, pal. we've been talking about this for many months as far as hunter biden and the laptop and contents that have been verified by every media organization, should have been verified before the 2020 election. this is a legitimate concern, the three countries hunter r hunter biden did business in, russia, ukraine, china, those are big in the news right now, particularly china and ukraine. we need to know not about hunter biden, if his father, the
2:25 am
current sitting president of the united states profited from the shady business dealings. it is good the cnn reporter is tweeting that, let's hear more on the air, because they are concentrating on donald trump, todd and carley. >> carley: great point. do you think this is a shift in the network or one reporter's tweet? >> joe: one reporter's tweet, when i see it on the air and see what they present on the news shows, then i will believe they are making the shift. until then, they have fired brian stelter, they did fire or something happened with john harwood, their senior white house correspondent. it seems like they are trying to go to the middle, but todd pointed out, if you try to be centrist and you are a cnn

2:35 am
party? >> when i hear this, i find it hard to believe they didn't pull this rhetoric before they began to utilize it and find is hard to believe that democrats didn't know this would create mass chaos. what was their goal? what were they trying to do? i don't think they were talking dollar o their base as much as trying to distract republicans. for me, it makes me ask myself, what do we do as republicans? i think democrats saw we stopped talking about some issues that matter to the undecided, which is price of food, gas, healthcare, economic growth and now a democrat slipping in on republicans when it comes to social security. they know playing defense the entire time, which is what they want us to do until november is a winning message for them. as republicans we excel and talk about issues that are really pertaining to the majority of
2:36 am
americans, which are inflation and economic issues. we got to make sure republicans, we focus on that and ignore this foolishness coming from the left. biden knows what he's doing and he will not distract us, republicans will within. >> carley: lieutenant governor did not attend his speech and there have been a number of candidates in swing states that are refusing the president's help on the campaign trail, what does that say about the state of the democratic party? >> that says you can't rally around joe biden, president biden is the opposite of what they need right now and that is why he's utilizing this weak platform he has to attack republicans, particularly maga republicans, what he calls them, we are all conservative and believe in the policy president trump put forth and wherure on
2:37 am
winning message is, that is all this is. if you can continue to divide and put another fraction divide the republican party in particular, that is what they're trying to do and their strategy. >> interesting time in politics and it is only just beginning, two more months to the midterm election. thank you so much. >> thank you. >> carley: $1 trillion price tag on biden's student loan hand out. the white house insists it will be paid for, how much is coming out of your wallet? >> todd: former trump budget director russ voight next. it only takes a second for an everyday item to become dangerous. tide pods child-guard pack

sword against consumers. >> carley: randi weingarten making news today. >> cheryl: randi weingarten taking credit for the public loan forgiveness program. they eliminated the rule that required 10 years public service saying we helped wipe out $450,000 student loan debt. the aft is helping borrowers through the advocacy around public loan forgiveness $10 billion forgiving for public workers. daily wire finds program forgave $64,000 for teachers.
2:45 am
this is off shoot of what we saw with the students loan forgiveness from the president we just recently saw, something the teachers union lobbied for. there are no rules now with 10 year, basically if you have $50,000 $400,000, you are looking at forgiveness. the taxpayers is paying for it, just so far. >> todd: bad one, another bad one is the original one, thank you, let's get into that now. new prediction reveal president biden's student loan hand out could have a price tag over $1 trillion, one we've been talking about, white house has different number in mind and claims whatever the cost, it will be paid for. >> debt relief proposal in the student loan by 24 billion over
2:46 am
next 10 years, this is paid for and far more by amount of deficit reduction on track for this year. >> todd: russ voit joins me now, the budget of the federal government works as opposed to the morons who pontificate. this will be paid for by deficit reduction as joe biden claims? >> no, no deficit reduction joe biden accomplished even inflation reduction act was mistitled and had $250 billion added to the nation's debt. this is a costly basis, as we know these packages change behavior and what university of penn wharton said it could go as high as trillion dollars as people change behavior to take on more debt. it increases inflation and debt
2:47 am
and causes people who go off of incentive to change behavior to take on more debt to benefit from some of the new provisions in this package, it is very damaging, it is dishonest for the white house to say anything other than the fact it will add to the nation's debt and politically in a negative manner for them because it is unfair to those around the country who have paid their student loan debt or didn't have the opportunity to go to college. >> todd: "wall street journal" found 58% of americans disapprove of his take on inflation. do you think the economy will ultimately be the main factor when people go to the voting booth and select their candidates come this midterm or have the democrats done a good enough job of distracting voters
2:48 am
with thing like abortion and the roe v. wade issue? >> the economy will be a major part in the next few months, the american people are negative in regard to the biden handling of the economy, fed need to take action and is taking aksz and biden administration keeps making their job harder. you can't respect the fed and drive spending up by 4 trillion in such way it causes democrat economists to say the student loan package will have 75 basis points alone in interest rate hikes it makes the fed's job harder, the american people know that, this is something i think they'll have to answer to in the next couple months. >> todd: is there any sense to when this orgy of debt, the bill, ultimately comes due? >> our fiscal house is clearly nothe in order and as a result
2:49 am
of this, it takes a lot of economic pain. delivered in this case by the federal reserve. it will continue to play out. it is not going away and some point the american people will rise up and say enough is enough and i hope this happens in upcoming election. >> todd: the burden will be on their kids and grand kids. grow number of democrats skipping campaign appearances with the president. mike mike huckabee reacts nngs. >> carley: check in with steve doocy, what is coming up on "fox and friends"? >> steve: day after labor day, summer unofficially ended, i know, a bummer, the focus is on washington and the midterm, 63 days away as democrats up against potential red wave, how big will the red wave be and president biden hitting the campaign trail, he called one

2:56 am
going to get tagged with something if they show up with joe biden. that's normally a very unusual situation because, tomi, if you have a sitting president, his presidency brings so much attention, so much focus on your race that you are thrilled to have a president show up and the imagery of air force one and all the transpor transportings frome president. when the candidates start running him like rats off a burning ship it says they are looking at their poll numbers and it's not pretty. >> todd: joe biden walked back some of his comments from the red lights speech and did this which is the exact opposite of walking back. >> the extreme maga republicans in congress have chosen to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate and division. but together we can and we must choose a different path. >> todd: okay, obviously the take away is, one, this is who joe biden is, this is who he feels and that walkback on
2:57 am
friday was not worth the paper it was written on. how big of a political misstep, governor, is this when it comes to trying to court those independents who want some civility and quite frankly who want our economy to get back to normal who want the border to get back to normal. who want a sense of normalcy in our nation? >> well, i think he just totally misread the american public. that speech was, i believe, one of the worst ever in presidential history. you know, my own, i guess, history of listening to presidents goes all the way back to eisenhower for gosh sake. i have never heard a speech quite like that delivered by a president even in the midst of a campaign where he gave that level of insult. now he is drying to differentiate between the maga extreme republicans but he doesn't say what that is. i mean, basically he said if you voted for trump, you are one of these people. but he is also filled with things that are demonstrably untrue when he says that republicans want to take your social security away.
2:58 am
i would remind people that donald trump was the candidate who adamantly said he did not want to change the social security formula for the people who had already paid in their money. and he was clear about that that was money that the workers owned and earned and it shouldn't be messed with. so, when joe biden says stuff like that, i mean, i wonder where is the press corps in washington? these are simple things that can be checked out. it's like the internet lives forever. but joe biden wants memory doesn't live for 30 seconds or more. >> at the same time, governor, in wisconsin and pennsylvania, the two candidates running, the two democratic candidates running for senate are right now polling better than the republican challengers according to the real clear politics average and overall, democrats are fairing a bit better than they were earlier this year. why do you think that's happening? >> because i don't think the republicans have done a very good job with the message. republicans need to focus on gasoline, groceries, and god.
