7:00 pm
house republicans tonight call for another fbi investigation into hillary clinton e-mail scandal, and this time, they want to know whether hillary clinton lied under oath when she testified she did not send or receive classified e-mails or her private server. one stopped to learn the fbi did not take into consideration hillary clinton speaking to congress when she talk about her handling of e-mails. >> did hillary clinton lie?
7:01 pm
>> to the fbi? we have no basis to conclude she lied to the fbi. >> did she lie to the public? >> that's the question i'm not qualified to answer. i can speak about what she said to the fbi. >> did hillary clinton lie under oath? >> not to the fbi, the case we're working. >> did the fbi investigate her statements under oath on this topic? >> not to my knowledge. i don't think there's been a referral from congress. >> do you need a referral from congress to investigate her statementings under oath. >> sure do. >> you'll have one. you'll have one in the next few hours. >> interesting moment there. on the hill to defend representations not to prosecute hillary clinton for improperly handling classified information. throughout five hours of testimony, comb he said there's no charges against clinton, but
7:02 pm
admitted many claims about the e-mail scandal were false. >> hillary clinton said she used just one device, was that true? >> she used multiple devices in the four years of her term as secretary of state. >> secretary clinton said all work-related e-mails were returned to the state department, is that true in. >> no. we found thousands not returned. >> well, we're going to have the full report on the hearing, and i'll take you to the political fallout with congressman, and also radio talk show host, laura ingram, a lot to discuss including a big day for trump patching things up with former rivals. the presumptive republican nominee met with house and senate republicans, and, apparently, made progress uniting the party. former rival ted cruz told reporters it was a positive and productive meeting with donald
7:03 pm
trump. he said cruz offered him a speaking slot, and he accepted. paul ryan was uncharacteristically praising trump today. >> i think we had a great meeting. i think our members really enjoyed it. this was the first time, just every one of the members had a chance to meet and engage with donald trump. so i thought it was great that he came. i'm glad he accepted our invitation, and we had a very good exchange on lots of ideas and policy issues. i thought it was a very good meeting and clear he's working on putting together a strong general election campaign. >> some of the favorite politicals are here, radio talk show host ebony williams and mike gallagher. breaking news, an internal investigation of possible miss handling of classified information by hillary clinton and top aids. the spokesman said e-mail probe
7:04 pm
is restarting now that the justice department is not pursuing a criminal prosecution. state department suspended reviews in april to avoid interfering with the fbi's inquiry. as for the fbi director, he was on the hill defending his decision not to prosecute clinton as republicans built the case that clinton repeatedly lied to the public. joining me now, editor-in-chief and host of the nation's most popular radio stations, a fox news contributor. laura, thank you for joining us. what was your assessment of james comey's testimony today? >> not all that surprised about what he said. the statement of the nonindictment the other day saying hillary clinton lied and he repeated that today, and he repeated his same, you know, claptrap about how you need a
7:05 pm
specific intent to violate statutes, which is untrue. you do not need the type of intent he's reaching for to pursue reasonable prosecution against hillary clinton. there is a false statement act. she violated that, going before congress and lying, as we heard today, on multiple occasions, about the number of deviolences she had or whether she turned over all the work-related documents, classified information. on multiple occasions, after she testified before congress, during her testimony, she told untruths. she had to know she used more than one device. why e she concealed it, we may never know the full story, but we know now that hillary clinton cannot be trusted with sensitive government information, and she says trump doesn't have judgment to be commander in chief?
7:06 pm
what foreign government or low level intelligence officer would ever trust any communication to hillary clinton after this. i mean, why would anyone trust any personal communication? i wouldn't trust her as far as i could throw her. >> i don't know how to use the irresponsible comment against donald trump because, again, this is the silver lining around the cloud, though, laura? on the one hand, if indicted, the democrats say it's a republican witch hunt, all political, everything else. she was not indicted, but james comey said what a bad character she is. i don't know how it plays out. it's summer time, people hear bits and pieces, not putting it together, but we know this. for a woman who's been in washington in public life for decades, for her to claim in any way, shame, or form that she didn't know that this was not
7:07 pm
kosher to do, that in itself disqualifies her for presidency. if you're that stay tuned, which we know she's not, and if you did it knowingly, i can't imagine any reasonable person would know e what she's saying and doing was not right, which is why a staffer told another staffer don't talk to her about the private server. that came out months ago. either option is bad. either option is disqualifying for presidency in my view. >> what do you make of the questions, the clinton foundation, i can't talk about that. what do you think of the nonanswer in. >> they tend, the fbi, not to talk a lot about ongoing investigations. i don't know how much to read into that. they may or may not be looking into the clinton foundation. i thought it was at the center of the e-mail intrigue anyway,
7:08 pm
but we don't know. we do know that a lot of big donors of the clinton foundation ended up, you know, having close relationships or business deals for the u.s. government. >> no question. >> we no that with the iranian deal. we know that for a fact already. was there any e-mails regarding any clinton foundation matter among those 33,000 that were destroyed? >> we won't know. we won't know. >> exactly. >> always good to see you. thank you so much. >> thanks. we're coming right back with more. stay with us. donald trump meets with 200 republicans in congress, a big show of unity ahead of the republican national convention. the trump train's moving forward, but the donald says there's still one pest to get rid of. >> i don't like those mosquitos. i never did.
7:09 pm
okay. speaking of mosquitos, hello, hillary, how are you doing? >> will unity squash obama's hope for a third term with clinton at the helm? that's next. this champion hang gliders acrobatic flight is about to take a turn for the worse and fast.

7:13 pm
donald trump today meeting with republicans on capitol hill including more than 200 house republicans who say the presumptive nominee called for party unity. >> what you saw today was donald trump, the next president of the united states, supercharge the republican conference. >> i can tell you this is a breath of fresh air that i saw here today. this is a business meeting to bring the outside to the inner beltway, and this is exactly what we need. >> i think there was real sense of unity, a positive meeting, and coming out of this today, going to the convention, we have a way moving forward. >> something wrong with my hearing? did i hear that right? what's going on here. joining me now, talk show host, ebony williams, and mike
7:14 pm
gallagher, both fox news contributor. ebony, did you hear what i heard? >> i think i heard what you heard. look, there's nothing like the stuff from the other side, bonding agent. love is in the air because my hate for you is so much stronger than my, you know, policy disagreements if you will. >> this was a love fest today. we're close to the convention. i guess it's not a surprise, though, that they without come home. >> tom, fragmentism is finally, perhaps settling in. i had the chance to interview the republican chairman minutes after the meeting this morning, and he was fired up, not only ecstatic, but he was also very on g angry and edgy both those saying we are going to block him, stop him. >> there's still some. >> win with or without him, and it was a pretty spirited exchange on the part of the rnc chairman who said, you know
7:15 pm
what, vote or get out of the way. >> one says she and donald trump came up with new york real estate together, and she's really smart and good, and she said she never met a better salesman than donald trump, and that's what he sounds like he was doing today, selling himself. >> seriously. she could be helpful with him in winning. he says he's the king of the deal making progress, part of the deal. this is an opportunity. this is very akin to what he has to do if, indeed, he makes it to the white house, and the policy and all this type of thing. >> you hear this a lot, but there's a public persona and private side that's engaged and smart and funny and really well put together, so i mean -- >> we heard that for years. >> they said that about hillary clinton too. one-on-one, she has a sense of humor, all the stuff from the
7:16 pm
outside looking in, i know i don't say. >> i've met her, and she's one of those, like her husband -- >> oh, really? >> you're the only one in the room. >> amazing. >> they used to talk about after bob dole got killed by bill clinton in '96, they said, dole, cracking jokes and funny, where was that guy in the candidate? >> they said that about al gorement if this was the guy who ran, they could have won fair and square. it's amazing how candidates have dual personas. >> but there's an authenticity that they appreciate, and people say this is a guy who basically is a little bit boisterous, but our guy. we have to support him. >> there's nothing more dramatically different than not authentic versus really sensitive sometimes -- >> authentic to a fault. what hillary has to see, if she can make ground here she did not in 2008.
7:17 pm
that like ability thing is not to be taken lightly. >> james comey, republicans say, this is good stuff, which base is fired up by this? >> i argued all week it's a political home run for donald trump. frankly, if she got charge and maybe had to step down and joe biden coming in with none of the baggage she has, that's a tougher mountain to climb. trump capitalizes on this until november. >> i agree. republicans shouldn't look at the fact she was not criminally indicted, but look at all the gifts james gave. >> absolutely. >> a basket full all the way until november. >> going, hey, pay attention to what i said. >> like, hello, she's really careless and awful. >> for all the ages, the fbi director declaring a presidential candidate was extremely careless with classified material. >> that's better than indictment. >> she's not acting as a
7:18 pm
reasonable person let alone a republican person who was secretary of state. that's gold. that really is. >> eboni and mike, two golds right there. >> oh, thank you. >> good to see you. >> follow lou on twitte twitter @loudobbs, here's everywhere, facebook, instagram. there's links for everything. go to a daredevil's worst fear, nearly suffering a fatal accident. the hang glider buckles -- uh-oh. he immediately begins a terrifying free fall through the air. thanks to the parachute, he suffered only minor injuries. thank goodness. up next, the fbi director confirming hillary clinton lied to the american people about her e-mail. >> hillary clinton said there was nothing classified on the e-mails sent or received, was
7:19 pm
that true? >> that's not true. there were a small number of portion markings on, i think, three of the documents. >> "washington times" picks up that up, next. if a denture were to be put under a microscope, we can see all the bacteria that still exists. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria. for a cleaner, fresher, brighter denture every day.

7:23 pm
fbi director, james comey, facing criticism today over the decision to the to prosecute hillary clinton. texas congressman, will herd, former undercover officer with the cia, focused on the top secret e-mails. >> so the former secretary of state, one of the president's most important advisers on foreign policy, national security, had a server in her basement that had information that was collected from the most sensitive asset, and it was not protected by anyone, and that's not a crime? that's outrageous. >> well, joining us now, washington times columnist, fox
7:24 pm
news cricket ontributor, charli where do you weigh in on this? people go, maybe it's better she was not indicted because james comey had a filet job on that. how do you weigh in? >> politically speaking, this could not have played out better for donald trump and republicans, and i think this director comey probably makes the best argument he made today is, look, essentially, this is -- we're going to put it up to the voters. we're in the middle of the election. this is the nominee of a major party. we're going to put it up to voters, kicking it out to them, and then says, yes, reckless with e-mail, no regards for classification, clearly lied under oath to congress.
7:25 pm
through all of that, the reason he decided they should not press charges is basically because she was so incompetent, so clueless about how to handle secret -- handle the nation's secrets and how to deal with e-mails, that you couldn't prove she even knew that she knew what she was doing. that's damming. for him to air it out like this and will many times between now and the election, i think is very, very good for republicans. >> i get the strategy of getting this out there and a make hay from it while you can, but at the same time, can the republicans over play this? you got next tuesday, loretta lynch testifies before one of the judiciaries, senate or house, one of them, and another says we're going to have an investigation then, too, file a complaint about the testimony before the committee. can they overplay this? >> i think, tom, i think it's always a problem, especially with these particular republicans. they have a good record of
7:26 pm
snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, but that said, it looks like, you know, state department opened up a new investigation. >> what is that? how -- >> so that's basically the other option that director comey laid out for republicans or the oversight committee saying, look, we don't -- we're not pressing charges, but if somebody was this reckless and this sloppy in the fbi, for example, we would launch an internal investigation and go after them, and that's basically what the state department is doing now. they are doing an internal investigation and hillary clinton and a top aid about how they handled or mishandled all the classified information, so what we can be looking at, tom, is a situation where hillary clinton could be elected president, at the very least, now running for the presidency, and the highest position ever held in the government, that
7:27 pm
department could strip her of her cleearance. i think that could be incredibly damming. i'm not holding out hope the state department moves fast on this or does anything like that at this point, but my goodness, what a precedent to set for someone running for president. >> we're pretty close, four months until election day. i know it's summer time, but, yeah, we're getting close enough where people remember. this is going to be fresh in their mind. charlie, i have to run, but always good to see you. thank you so much. >> thanks, tom. >> you bet. we're right back with much more. stay with us. fbi director james comey avoids tough questions today before the house oversight committee. >> you're saying this former secretary of state is not sophisticated enough to understand a classified marking? >> i think it's possible, possible that she did not understand what a c met. >> the congressman drilling the fbi boss today.
7:28 pm
he'll join us next. this speedwriter is taking his next big adventure high above the slopes. we'll show you his remarkable high speed ride.

7:31 pm
with diabetic nerve pain. if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands, don't suffer in silence! step on up and ask your doctor about diabetic nerve pain. tell 'em cedric sent you. fbi director today questioning whether hillary clinton was sophisticated enough to understand and identify classified markings on e-mails. >> there's a question about
7:32 pm
sophistication that came up earlier whether she was actually sophisticated enough to understand what a c means. >> you're saying the former secretary of state is not sophisticated enough to understand a classified marking? that's a humge statement. >> i know what i'm saying. you asked, did i assume someone would know? before the investigation, i would have, but i'm not sure of the answer any longer. >> congressman mark meadows and foreign affairs committee, and i got to commend you, congressman, you almost looked like you wanted to laugh, but you -- you didn't look like you appreciated the fact that somebody with that many years in washington, d.c. did not know about it. >> it's not a laughing matter as the american people will tell you, and really, what we saw today is that the evidence that is out there is hard for even those who want to believe to
7:33 pm
believe she told the truth and suggest she's not sophisticated enough to understand what even the freshman members of congress understand is really troubling. it's a bridge too far. >> i think a lot of people are right there with you, kindred spirit on that, but i'm curious about the state department opening up this investigation again because i don't know how much further you can run this. i know the chairman said he was going to put a request in for the fbi to look whether she lied before congress. that's one option. the state department reopening the investigation, what's happening from that? >> well, it really gets to part of the issue with the state department. i applaud them for doing it. it shows they need to get their house in order as it really relates to complying with federal law. there's a federal law that says you must preserve those records. we know that she didn't. in fact, the testimony later
7:34 pm
this afternoon, we heard from the ig who said they have not been printing out the copies of the e-mails as she should, and for them to not invest gait and really make good procedural changes would be to ignore this whole debacle we had and allow it to happen again. that's what most of us wanted to make sure national security wasn't there, but that it does not happen again. >> does the ig have peace and get things done? you have secretary john kerry who probably is not enthused about doing anything that hurts hillary? >> well, obviously not, and, certainly, sometimes politics plays a role there, but the igs with the power of the oversight and subpeana power bien them, bedo the independent review, and
7:35 pm
i talked to them, talking with the igs that testified today, and i believe they get full cooperation with the state department, and if not, we'll make sure we illuminate the situation more. >> that brings up the referral that was talk about today, the fact, did she lie before congress. is that -- the wheels of washington move so slow, is that something that could actually go somewhere, do something prior to november in. >> well, i think it can, and whether it's prior to november or after november i think the american people deserve honest answers. they've been waiting almost a year, and one of the interesting things in testimony today showed that she gave sworn testimony, and that is not in -- it's not consistent with what we heard from director comey today so there's some gap there that must be explored, and that's why the chairman is going to issue that referral.
7:36 pm
we see hopefully in the coming weeks a renewed interest in making sure that sworn testimony, that she did not mislead congress. >> real quickly, you represent north carolina and the president and hillary were there tuesday. tuesday night, donald trump was there. obviously, north carolina is an important state. what's the read from what you hear on the ground in north carolina? >> well, in north carolina, you kn know, 200 miles away there, tom, what you saw there was one thing government is the problem, and the other, hillary is the solution. all agree washington, d.c. is broken. only one candidate willing to do that, donald trump is the person for the state of north carolina. i believe he'll carry the state. >> all right. let's hurry up. it'll be here before we know. congressman, thank you so much for joining us this evening. >> thank you. >> you bet. adrenaline junkie's dream.

donald trump today winning new support from members of congress, in particular, his chief rival in the primaries, senator ted cruz. >> we had a positive, productive meeting this morning with donald trump. donald asked me to speak at the republican convention, and i told him, i would be happy to do so. >> what else was discussed in the meeting? >> no discussion of endorsement. he asked me to speak at convention, and i said i would be glad to do so. >> saying the speech focuses on importance of getting back to the constitution and president obama's failed economic policies. among those to speak, wisconsin governor scott walker and tennessee congresswoman marsha blackburn. joining us now, editor of the national review and fox news contributor, and from boston, boston herald columnist, rich, starting with you.
7:43 pm
are the republicans coming home? >> well, it's a little bit like an awkward marriage where everyone wants to keep it together for the sake of the kids at least until november, so you have cruz, who is happy to speak at convention. he loves that high profile platform, but going out of the way at the same time saying he's not endorsing the republican nominee, so that just goes to that awkwardness. >> yeah. i mean, if you look back in conventions, we were going over trying to do history off the top of our heads, there's a lot of convention speakers that use that as the platform to launch future campaigns down the road. i can think of bill clinton, barak obama -- >> ronald reagan. >> right. so is this ted cruz, make sense for him to be a major speaker? >> i think it's fantastic. it shows that donald trump is succeeding inup mying the party. i mean, if he makes peace with
7:44 pm
ted cruz, there's hope for the entire gop. i e say to ted, welcome aboard. it's wonderful he's going to be speaking. there's still a possibility out there. i know it's a long shot, for some people who tell me maybe trump will surprise the gop at the convention and announce maybe a ted cruz vp slot. people think that's off the table because he's not endorsed him, but what if he did that night and there's big surprises. there's also scott walker. how do we know he's not a vp? i think a lot of people, including myself, can't wait to watch the convention and see what unfolds. he met with the lawmakers, it went well, and the party is really coming together, which is very hopeful for the future. >> rich, you know a lot of people here in new york, maybe you don't know personally, but say he's like bill clinton, a charmer, a good salesman.
7:45 pm
is that showing up, the private donald trump not seen on the podium? >> i don't think so. i think it's more the party, the elected officials of the party are in a really awkward position, and they realize they need to support the nominee or make a show of supporting the nominee or risk being a debacle in november. i thought the folks scurry on to the ship, and it seems as though he's thinking in october, then we'll be talking about all scurrying back off. >> are you saying the talk of rebellion, a revolt, the never trump crowd will behave in the convention, only two weeks away. >> i think there's some attempt by the trump of the convention, but unlikely to succeed. for that scenario to work out, trump has to be in complete free fall in the poll. instead, he's got closer. you have to have officials
7:46 pm
denouncing and running away, but instead, they are making a kind of peace, so he's the republican nominee, no doubt about it. >> the question about the hearing on the e-mail, is this -- whose base is fired up more? the republicans are fired up, i know that, but the democrats going to get fired up over this? >> well, you know, i think this actually, you know, clearly hurts hillary clinton. the fbi director confirmed she's lied. hillary clinton told us last march at the press conference at the u.n. she did not send or receive any classified information on her rogue -- that's proved to be a total lie and lied about she only had one server, but there was multiple. the lies are long and deep. however, you know, i was watching the hearing today, and there's one very big question that the committee missed, which they should have asked the director. i wrote about it today, which is
7:47 pm
did hillary clinton text classified information while secretary of state? there's. a singular focus on her e-mails, which we know she e-mailed classified information, but what about her text? we know she was glued to the blackberry. ask the state department, did she text classified information and did she delete the texts? there could be a major treasure-trove of information there material to the investigation, and it's worth looking into, so i hope that congressmen ask mr. comey that question in the near future. >> send them a text. i got to run, but both thank you very much. joining me now, christian adams, former u.s. department attorney serving under both president bush and obama and author of "injustice: exposing the racial agenda department," glad you're on the
7:48 pm
program tonight, because you explain the law in english, which i like about you. this intent that james comey says we couldn't prove intent, yet i'm told by judge napolitano and others, intent doesn't matter. if you mishandle a secret document, doesn't matter if you knew or not. what is it? >> it's gross negligence. that's another ball game proving negligence. it's harder in some ways and easier in others. you can be sure they put up evidence, they were not grossly negligent, and there's a battle, and whether or not it's proved beyond a reasonable doubt. i think it could, obviously, certain people disagree with me. >> well, yeah, no reasonable prosecutor, but there's a lot of reasonable prosecutors who go, yes, i would, but if you think about it, there's also -- you deal with the court of law, but
7:49 pm
we're talking about the court of public opinion now, and were you surprised by director comey coming out and saying, i'm not charging her, but let me tell you all the terrible stuff she did, and a lot of the attorneys that are pro-hillary lawyers say that was out of line. do you agree? >> well, they may have a point in a perverse way. it's not normally how things work between the fbi and justice department. normally recommendations are private. normally they don't take place a couple days after a questionable tarmac summit between president clinton and the attorney generals, but this is really becoming a political justice department. they bring flimsy cases against people like bob mcdonald. they don't care if it might not ultimately succeed, and then they don't prosecute lois lerner or hillary which seems like an easy case. >> i know that's what the rule is supposed to be, attorney
7:50 pm
general is supposed to be separate, but appointed by the president, serves on the cabinet. how do you separate politics from the department of justice? >> well, ultimately, you can't, but there are standards to abide by. this attorney general, this justice department has been p punished repeated by federal judges in new orleans, in texas, and ordered to undergo conduct training because of misconduct by lawyers up and down at the doj in the last couple years, and you have an attorney for doj interfering in the hillary investigati investigation. they stopped questioning from being asked by the fbi during the interviews. they were in league with hillary's lawyers to prevent certain lines of questioning. clearly, the doj process cannot be trusted, and perhaps the fbi raised the white flag saying,
7:51 pm
we're not going to fight this fight. >> back to the public opinion, the public has that feeling they don't trust the doj. they don't trust government. that's the problem. it's ruining trust in the government. christian adams, great to get your take on things. thank you so much. >> thanks. up next, matt damon made a fortune playing jason bourne, and now he demands american gun owners have guns taken. yes, by the government. >> you guys did it here in one fell swoop, and i wish that could happen in my country. we cannot talk about it sensibly. we just can't. people get so emotional and so that even when you make a suggestion about you -- i mean, not selling ak-47s on terror watch lists, you know what i mean, that's, like, a nonstarter. >> can you imagine being -- yeah, emotional about taking
7:52 pm
guns? we take up hollywood's hypocrisy next.
7:53 pm
7:54 pm
7:55 pm

and former ms. new york usa, and this matt damon piece against guns, he was in australia and talked about the fact they had a gun law back in the '90s, and the way i read it, it did not change the number of deaths or murders. he wants give ups taken, what do you think? >> it's a little strange to me, also, because he was there in australia promoting the latest of the jason bourne films. now, in all the past movie posters for the films, except this one, a gun is there in every poster. it is being advertised as a film with guns in it. >> look at the clip. shooting all kinds. there they go. >> it doesn't seem very, i don't know, in line with his thinking. >> those are highly trained government operatives, so it's

okay for them to have guns m i think that's what's going on here. >> okay. >> my feeling is this, no, there's hollywood hypocrisy for this, but for me, it's not because hollywood makes movies with guns in them, but movies where they feddish guns and make them look sexy. >> glorification. >> yes. once you do that, you don't have any business going out there and telling people guns are bad because you make them look cool. >> why doesn't he do disney movies where he doesn't have to hold a gun? if you want to be principled about the thing, matt damon, i'm not using guns, he's at the point he can call what movies he wants. >> could be movies with guns pay a lot of money. i could be wrong about that, but maybe that's part of it. >> maybe so. dolly is not news, saying she thought a woman would do a great job as president, but i liked her statement, i try not to get political, but if i am, imight

as just run myself because i have the hair for it, it's huge, and they could always use more boobs in the race. what do you think? >> god bless dolly. love her. love it. she's known for when people bring up political points she'll make a joke out of it, so, and good for her for not, i'm not endorsing hillary, that was not an endorsement for her to see a woman in the white house, which is great, because celebrities have been, but it immediately alienates fans of yours who disagree. she doesn't want to do that. >> isn't that why she clarified she was not endorsing hillary? i'm guessing a country music singer has a substantial fan base that's not a fan of hillary clinton. >> what? >> yes. or we could talk about the dixie chicks, but that's another -- >> yeah. >> you're right. nashville, i think, is probably more conservative. >> yeah.

>> the cub scouts, i don't know, were you a cub scout? >> i was not. >> i wish when i was a cub scout the hooters club was around. there's one in denver that sponsored a cub scout event, and parents are upset. >> it's a restaurant. it's a very nice place to dine. have you had their quesadilla? i swear it's the most dirkselic i had in a restaurant. >> i've never been to hooters, no, really. >> come on. >> no one's listening. >> no, really. >> my favorite part of the story is the parents are outraged. parents were not outraged. moms might have been. dads were not. dads thought it was cool. >> the problem with children's event, whether it's little league baseball, whatever, it's great. the kids always have a good time if not for the parents. leave the parents at home and turn the kids over. >> let them have fun. >> the kids have seen a lot

worse, a lot -- on social media. >> oh, yes. worse or better? >> depends on your point of view, andy. >> all right, andy, thank you. good night from new york. thanks for joining us. tonight on "war stories." they were at the top of their game. >> i'm no hero. heroes don't come back from wars. >> but for them sacrifice wasn't just about scoring runs. >> we want to fight. that's the reason. >> william said to do something, i would do it without question. >> i never saw so many strangers in my life. >> from the ballpark to the battlefield, b war ii. that's next on "war stories." ♪ that's the legendary green
