"the evening edit" starts right now. ♪ elizabeth: welcome to the show.
6:03 pm
you're watching the fox business network. let's get right to edward lawrence with the latest headlines out of washington, d.c. good toe see you, edward. reporter: good to see you, liz. in fact president donald trump losing patience with some democratic-run cities. he is looking at violent numbers from over the weekend and believes the federal government may have to come in to stop the crime. listen. president trump: look what is going on. run by democrats. all run by liberal democrats all run by radical left. we can't let this happen to the cities. new york was up 348%, the crime wave. so the governor has to do something about it. if the governor is not going to do something about it we'll do something about it. reporter: the president seeing images from seattle this past weekend a march as demonstrators walked through seattle they started beating on storefronts with bats. two dozen were arrested and a dozen police officers or two were arrested and a dozen police officers were injured. in chicago, new video showing sg
6:04 pm
that in downtown there was coordinated attacks. can see someone dumbing a box full of bricks in the crowd, throwing them at officers. 18 officers were injured this weekend across the city. in chicago, 67 people were shot the past few days. portland ore again, showing 53 straight days of unrest. the mayor is blaming the administration for sending federal guards around federal courthouses and other federal buildings. >> what we've seen in portland, however, a governor who is unwilling to admit he lost control of his city. a mayor who is saying i don't need the help of federal law enforcement while you have the rioters trying to burn down a courthouse, set a police building on fire, hurl pigs feet, attack officers and threaten police officers and citizens alike. reporter: white house looking very closely at those actions. now these protests not following any social distancing either. another reason why the president
6:05 pm
wants to get a vaccine as soon as possible. astrazeneca released its results from the trials. very promising but not as good as other results from pfizer and mow dern n still with the vaccines moving to the next phase, 120,000 americans are being asked to volunteer to help and test. 110,000 signed up n order to get the big health push and update folks exactly where we are with the coronavirus the president, as you said, liz is bringing back the coronavirus task force briefings, starting tomorrow at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. back to you. elizabeth: great to see you, edward. thank you so much. as you heard edward report, president trump will send federal law enforcement to potentially baltimore, philadelphia, new york, chicago, oakland. this as head of the police union in chicago made a direct appeal. he is asking the president for help as dozens again were shot in chicago, people getting killed there.
6:06 pm
house democrats, led by jerry nadler want federal watchdogs to look into what the president is doing, using u.s. marshals and border patrol officials to stop the rioting. the rioting has gone on two months nationwide, killing more than two dozen, pushing three dozen killed. rioters set on fire attacked businesses and police buildings and federal courthouses and state courthouses worth hundreds of millions of dollars. worsening joblessness when covid-19 is slamming the u.s. economy hard with historic unemployment. tens of millions out of work. the head of the portland police union said portland elected officials condoned chaos. they put their political agenda ahead of of the community. this has got to stop. he said the troops have to leave. as rioters tried to burn down a police building. watch portland merited wheeler. >> what is happening here, we
6:07 pm
have dozens if not hundreds of federal troops descends upon our city, what they are doing is they are sharply escalating the situation. their presence here is actually leading to more violence and more vandalism and it is not helping the situation at all. elizabeth: okay. remember there are 53, 53 straight days of rioting and protesting going on in portland. watch acting customs and border protection commissioner mark morgan forcefully denying what the mayor is saying. watch this. >> they go out. they have reasonable suspicion or probable cause that these individuals have commit ad federal crime by destroying federal property, or, or, intentionally trying to physically harm a federal agent or officer and they are going out and they are absolutely trying to apprehend those individuals. that is what they should be doing, to insure law and order. these are criminals. they should be held responsible. elizabeth: we've got back the blue rallies saying defend,
6:08 pm
don't defund the police, defend the police, held in states like indiana, south carolina, pennsylvania, new york. there was a denver rally that was attacked by anti-cop protesters. that happened over the weekend. welcome to the show, retired nypd detective oscar odom. detective, great to have you on. what do you think of what all is going on? should federal authorities go in. >> absolutely. let me say first thank the men and women in blue, nypd officers, across the country who go out every day to put their life on the line. absolutely yes. we talk about the united states constitution, bill of rights, guarranty certain things, it guaranties us the right to peacefully protest. that is the part that is missing from the equation. people are going out there and they are rioting. that is not what it says. the constitution even says, it place as time, place and manner restriction on these type of activities, you need some sort of law and order this is not in the spirit of george floyd to go out there to harm police officers, damage businesses, to
6:09 pm
do things of that nature. this is not in the spirit whatsoever. the data will bear out these things are wreaking havoc on people's lives, wreaking havoc on people's businesses and how do you as a police officer go to someone's family to say that you have to tell them their loved one was killed because of these type of acts taking place? also police officers, when you take the job, it is not to be a punching bag. police officers across the country are being beat up, stabbed, look at peaceful protest taking place in new york city, across the bridge with the black clergy. the police officers were attacked protecting black clergy, marching for police reform. good cops hate bad cops also. these things escalated. they have taken it to another level. this has nothing to do with it. this is the not in the spirit of george floyd. you would be acting differently an trying to do different types of things. elizabeth: police say shootings in portland are up, nearly
6:10 pm
quadrupled in the first week of july alone. you know, here is the other thing that is going on. we see ordinary citizens saying, wait a second, communities of color, minority communities, communities that have first-responders like nurses and doctors and cops, an firemen, living in those communities, they're seeing their communities getting really hit hard by rioting and looting. that is still going on. this is two months of this. i want to show the footage by shelby, a "daily caller" reporter. a man had enough, went to federal courthouse in portland, oregon with an american flag. you will hear him. we heard what we was saying. it is difficult to hear what he is saying but basically what he is saying is, i'm here to stop you guys from attacking the federal courthouse. i stand with justice. stand with me. i'm here for justice. i'm not here to tear down buildings. not here to spray paint. none of you guys represent black lives. that is the other complaint.
6:11 pm
they're seeing white people doing rioting. that is what african-americans are saying. what do you say? >> i agree wholeheartedly. some people are mixed up what is actually taking place. they're out there to futher their own individual causes. not causes that are there for police reform and to do things better, to make sure we respond better to certain situations. to make things squared away. out there on their personal -- doing ha vock, not everything according to law. when people come to me, dr. odom how do you evaluate certain situations that are taking place? stuff must be data driven, evidence-based. when you look what they're doing, you have a lot of issues taking place. it goes back to the old saying from the show "baretta." don't do the crime if you can't do the time. if you're out there doing something, don't do it unless you can do the time. other thing with bail laws that mess it up, they allow people to come out, to do things over and over again.
6:12 pm
that why we have all the havoc. this is devastating the economy by different things like this. if you want to let somebody out, put them in a program, help them out. make their lives better. don't put them out after they commit a crime. because now they injure police officers and other families and people are dying. bodies do not lie. when you see all the murders taking place across the country because of the havoc, it is not a lie. don't do the do the crime if yot dot time. the before the police officer gets off their shift we have to make sure we pay attention to these things. if you are for true reform, you should be out there peacefully protesting. not jumping up and down, not attacking police officers. we're not punching bags. this is not what we took the job for. we took the job to protect life and property. we run to the crime. get call shots fired, man with a gun. we don't run away. we make sure you're protected. at the same time we putting our
6:13 pm
lives on the line while we go out there to protect your life. elizabeth: oscar, thank you very much for your service to our country. i remember the tv show "baretta." that is how old i am. thanks for bringing it up. great perspective. thank you for your service to our country. appreciate it. oscar odom there. we have more on the newly declassified fbi documents showing the chaos behind the scenes going on at the fbi. how they knew in early 2017 that their information they were using to get fisa wiretaps to spy on the trump team, flawed and dubious. they went ahead any way. house republican guy rest enthaller, on house judiciary. he will talk about it next. did fbi officials commit perjury? republicans say yes. >> i will be shocked if somebody doesn't go to jail for defrauding the fisa court. here is what i think durham is looking at this.

♪ elizabeth: newly declassified fbi documents show that fbi leadership under james comey knew by january 2017, thatf p-ialu, infoatthersing t puhand the trump-russia probe this, is the christopher steele dossier. christopher steele sources said it was warmed over gossip, secondhand rumor. fbi sourcing was bad on this.
6:18 pm
senator lindsey graham says the fbi should have stopped the trump russia prone in 2017 but they didn't. they got wiretaps on. guy reschenthaler republican on house judiciary? great to have you back on. did these fbi officials purge themselves on the fisa court? christopher steele's own sources were telling the fbi we didn't have a network of russian sources inside russian intelligence or russian government. this is a social circle of drinking buddies. it was warmed over gossip. these didn't very any sources. this was steele's contract worker. he was not russian. what do you think about this? >> if somebody had to commit perjury during all this. they knew after they interviewed steele's source who like you said was on steele's payroll, and who, there was no
6:19 pm
corroborating evidence, right? they, they took that information from that source, went to the fisa judges, while the at same time, you had a report that was being conducted behind closed doors where they admitted there was no collusion and there was no evidence for collusion. so at some point, somebody had to lie to a judge, to get the fisa warrant. at least renewals that took place in april and june. and that is not only committing perjury, that is not having what we lawyers call candor with the court. so at the very least, some people should lose their bar license and some people frankly should go to jail. elizabeth: senator graham says he wants to call in james comey and mr. mccabe to testify. the backdrop is, christopher steele told a british court, he testified, he was paid by democrats including the hillary clinton campaign to dig up dirt, to contest the to fight, battle, 2016 election if hillary clinton lost and trump won. that was a steele dossier but the
6:20 pm
the fbi used that dossier to spy on the trump team. christopher steele was dressing up the secondhand rumor if its with authoritative and sounding if it wasn't. your reaction to that? >> they took the report being paid for by the clinton campaign, they used it to get a warrant to spy on the trump campaign. after knowing that report was boeing boeing bus and based on false information. they got two renewals to spy on sitting president's campaign. mueller hearing, mueller report, et cetera. something went wrong and justice was not done with this entire process. elizabeth: we've got this new information coming in. watchdog group "judicial watch" releasing documents from the probe showing fbi official peter strzok emailing, complaining to fbi official bill priestap. looks like strzok may have wanted to secretly use fbi briefings with president trump
6:21 pm
to gather information for the trump-russia probe without telling president trump. he is emailing bill priestap early january 2017. that was the day after the president took office, saying quote, i'm angry i was not cc'd, carbon copied about an fbi white house briefing with trump. my unit has pending investigative matters there. this brief may play into our investigative strategy. he wanted a head's up on future white house briefings. your take on that? >> well the fbi and top echelon were doing everything they could to undo the results of the 2016 election. we saw it when they tried to entrap flynn. they went in to talk to trump knowing information was faulty through the mueller investigation. so i'm not surprised at all, liz. elizabeth: all right. congressman, great to see you. thanks for coming on. >> thank you, liz. elizabeth: up next, the media and prominent democrats again downplaying the rioting and the looting. we've got video of one cnn host

is one of the first things an american president should be about, safety, security, law and order, certainly. one thing i can guarranty you, if it was a lot of destruction going on in more conservative cities, conservative towns, things were being disrupted as you see in places like chicago, los angeles, portland, then you would see, cnn covering it non-stop, other networks as well. if anything, what i have noticed, if there is any benefit to president trump's election, getting played down in the mainstream media over and over again. let's be honest about the numbers. this 2012, the riots that we've seen, not 2012, the riots in 2020, riots in 2020 is the costliest on record. one group estimated about $5 billion in damages. that was early estimate. we see in the state of california it, was $38 million in overtime spent for state law enforcement there. you also think about what was
6:28 pm
the or the estimate in terms of what is a comparison? the 1992 l.a. riots was at one point the costliest. this is legitimate issue. people should be concerned. state and local governments are talking about raising taxes because of covid, other things. there are a lot of businesses suffering. no network should be playing this down. this is a very real issue for a lot of people. elizabeth: coming during the covid pandemic with people out of work. >> absolutely. elizabeth: businesses are getting slammed. federal property getting slammed. why is the media, why are democrats, they have been accused downplaying what is going on? they are accused of downplaying. i will come to you after this montage. i will come to you after this. watch. >> it is dangerous, these people can take this home with them and hurt their families and all the rest. >> i would like to ask them if they're willing to sign away their right to treatment if and when they get infected. >> who the hell do you think you

excusing the riots that we've seen, not peaceful protests. everyone can agree what happened to george floyd is wrong. it is something that shouldn't happen to anyone, 100%. i think most folks in universal agreement on that topic. however, what we, cannot be in agreement with, you coming into my community and destroying it. a lot of these businesses didn't have insurance to cover a lot of the damage done. so people who are already stretched thin and suffering from covid, they're in real jeopardy now. the national guard was called in 21, at least 21 states to bring about peace. in places like the city of chicago, they're still looting. still looting. elizabeth: here is the other -- yeah. the minnesota attorney general, keith ellison, he is saying fighting is about militarizing the police, protesters don't like that. he is saying that the debate about moving money away from police budgets, it is about

6:39 pm
mexico and canada combined. so that is a huge incentive for us to support the usmca. and look, under the obama-biden years, 850,000 jobs disappeared across this country because of the policies they put in place, the trade policies so this president has been a pro-job growth president. we've seen it here in my state and everyone across this country have seen the benefit of it. elizabeth: you know, biden is getting criticized because his new economic plan says little to nothing about trade deals, corey. biden is not talking about trade deals at all, hardly. you know, china is getting manufacturing jobs. it is hurting u.s. workers. hurting union workers, the loss of factory jobs. president will sign executive orders. what is that about, what do you think? >> joe biden voted to have china most-favored nation trade status. he has never seen a chinese trade deal he hasn't supported and probably one his family hasn't benefited from. donald trump since he came down

the golden escalator, told the american people we had to decouple our economy from china. that they were the wrong partner. he was criticized widely in the media for this but proven to be absolutely right. when it relates to the trans-pacific partnership, most-favored nation status for china, joe biden supported all trade deals taken our manufacturing industry and completely decimated states like pennsylvania, wisconsin, michigan, ohio, all decimated from bad trade deals. it is the first time a president stood up for the midwest and manufacturing. and remember this, it used to be we made cars in michigan and we couldn't drink the water in mexico. all of sudden under the obama administration we couldn't drink the water in michigan and making cars in mexico. something had to change. this president brought our manufacturing back which was the, which is what we call the american carnage under obama-biden years. it is finally back and people are working again. elizabeth: china makes nearly
