new homeland security secretary called out today saying there is no border crisis as human trafficking, drug trafficking and the number of illegal aliens apprehended at the border is rising. thanks for joining us. i'm elizabeth macdonald. "the evening edit" starts right now. ♪. elizabeth: okay. thanks for joining us. you're watching the fox business network. let's get right at it with former federal prosecutor, jim trusty. jim, how can governor cuomo hold on to his job because now he is accused of trying to steer and hold his own sexual harrassment probe by himself? >> it's a multifront war. he has the war on his hands related to the nursing home scandal and very damning and very devastating. he has an increasing drumbeat of sexual harrassment, at least creepiness in the first-degree, something in the area of
possible civil or criminal liability. it is probably not going to get better. this last moment picking his own judge failed in what, 12 hours? i love the notion to pick my own judge when i get in trouble. that ship sailed and sunk quickly and the state ag is looking into it with a serious examination. elizabeth: yeah the judge is that he wanted was an ally of cuomo. the new york state attorney general, letitia james, has subpoena power. sexual harrassment allegations are considered political strychnine to a politician's career. he is lawyering up with criminal defense lawyer abramowitz. your take on that action today? >> the subpoena power is ability to see how reckless this man was. his comments at the very least were reckless f they're to be believed, they were stupid comments to make perhaps
violating title vii and other laws. he might be the type that is so reckless he put some of this in writing as well. the state attorney general looking at text messages, looking at emails that could be literally what breaks his back in terms of finding damning information. elizabeth: let's go through the information. charlotte bennett, a former new york state official, about the same age as cuomo's daughter, saying that he spoke inappropriately, that is the allegation, inappropriately to her. questions about her sex life. whether she is monogamous. whether she likes sex with older women. repeatedly asked her about a sexual assault she endured. that is charlotte bennett. lindsey boylan also a former aide. these are both democrats by the way. that he inappropriately tried to touch her and kiss her. we have the doj-fbi probe into the coverup related to his order.
he is being accused gaslighting with his statement on the harrassment allegations, your reaction to that. the allegation he is gaslighting coming from the sexual harrassment working group. you take that on. >> a variety of things to talk about. one, the conversation purported to be talking about sex with older men and all the other components are first class creepy, they may not be criminal in terms of any sort of physical conduct. that is one of the divider lines, look what words create liability versus the physical conduct but think for a minute about manipulating a prior sexual assault to have these conversations with this woman. i don't know about the legal part. the moral part is pretty unmistakable there. it is pretty horrific. i think what you're talking about overall is gravitating what they call hostile work place environment. that is what title vii was expanded by case law to cover, not just quid pro quo harrassment but creating a uncomfortable atmosphere based on these sexual power plays.
that is the civil side t might graduate to something more depending what the witnesses say but it is pretty damning? elizabeth: got it. jump trusty, thanks for joining us. kristin tate, young americans analyst. great writer. critics are asking why it took democrat lawmakers like nancy pelosi and kristin gillibrand to criticize andrew cuomo even with the nursing home death coverup story? your reaction to that? >> because cuomo is a democrat and democrats have been able to get away with far more than republicans when it comes to receiving criticism from their allies but look, they're things are starting to look really bad for cuomo. these scandals cannot be ignored anymore. in 2020 the media glowingly labeled him america's governor. in a few weeks, the governor is seeing this constructing with
left hinge allies collapse around him. his hypocrisy, recklessness, inappropriate behavior, is so flagrant the left-wing press can't ignore it. in 2018 he was campaigning using "me too" movement, the same year one of his aides resigned because she said was inappropriate touching and sexual harrassment by the governor that started in 2016 this can't be ignored any long every. elizabeth: charlotte bennett is saying he, alleging he sexually harassed her with inappropriate comments and other statements at the height of the pandemic last year. let's listen, new york state democrats criticizing andrew cuomo. we have the new york city mayor also without with statements about andrew cuomo. let's watch this. >> that is not a laughing matter so you know, people have done something wrong need to admit io change and i certainly didn't hear that i think, more and more people are going to be talking about what they have experienced
and i think as people see more and more evidence it is going to be clear this is not the way any leader should treat anybody. elizabeth: governor cuomo in a statement saying he was, if people are misinterpreting, they may be misinterpreting unwanted flirtation and he was making inappropriate jokes and the like, so your reaction to that. >> such hypocrisy he was supposedly a big champion of the "me too" movement but i would point out the hypocrisy doesn't end with his reported inappropriate contact with women. this is a guy who wrote a book praising himself for handling of the virus as thousands of elderly new yorkers died after his disasterous nursing home policy. cuomo went on to line about the real death toll in nursing homes for a year. cuomo is no more than a power hungry politician and wants to bolster his public persona and doesn't care who gets hurt along
the way. cuomo only cares about cuomo. if the lawmakers in new york won't home him accountable, the voters will do that next year. he has early election in 2022. elizabeth: there is this video reemerged on social media showing governor cuomo questionably pressuring a female reporter about, with sexually suggestive statements about eating a certain type of sandwich. the reporter is denying anything wrong with that people saw the video. we watched it. we saw his daughter sitting next to him, looking really uncomfortable about that. there is that going on, kristin. there is these kind of videos are emerging, kristin. then we have this. we have dana bash at cnn asked white house press secretary jen psaki for her reaction about this. jen psaki said both sides need to be heard. she found what is going on uncomfortable. this is the same jen psaki who attacked senator susan collins as a quote fake feminist coward to vote to confirm
brett kavanaugh. there seems to be a bit after double standard critics are pointing out, kristin. your final word? >> that is exactly right. multiple high level democrat left-wing women have still remained silent on the cuomo situation despite passionately objecting to brett kavanaugh's confirmation on the supreme court due to decades-old, unsubstantiated claims. kamala harris and elizabeth warren still said nothing about cuomo. yet they were the ones spouting the believe all women talking points, saying that kavanaugh had no place on the court. so it has become clear for a lot of democrats, not all of them, a lot of them the "me too" movement was all about politics and not protecting women. elizabeth: okay. kristin, thanks for joining us. really appreciate it. >> thank you, liz. elizabeth: coming up fox news contributor jason chaffetz. the biden administration, people in washington are saying now on defense saying that donald trump did rattle the biden team over what trump says is key policy
mistakes on jobs, own energy, lockdowns, and the border. not all republicans signed on to trump running the gop. we'll break down the story for for you next. >> cpac, do you miss me yet? joe biden has had the most disasterous first month of any president in modern history. that's true. [cheers and applause] already the biden administration has proven that they are anti-jobs, anti-family, anti-borders, anti-energy, anti-women and anti-science. in just one short month we have gone from america first to america last. you think about it, right? america last. ♪ investments, key portfolio events, all in one place. because when it's decision time, you need decision tech.

that donald trump was able to institute, really made a difference. when the president went item by item all the way down the list, i think you're looking at the contrast between joe biden and what this administration is currently doing, and, i think donald trump's right. i think it resonates with america. elizabeth: cpac's straw poll, 55% chose trump for 2024 run. second was in running there was florida governor ron desantis. we've got republican senator bill cassidy saying trump should not be running the gop. that basically you know, republicans lost the house, the senate and the presidency because of trump. we know mitt romney, liz cheney, susan collins, lisa murkowski, ben sasse oppose trump and adam kinzinger as well. your reaction to that? >> i think a lot of those people oppose donald trump the person
and his tweets but i would suggest to you that if you dived down and ask them what do you disagree with on the policy of making america great, i don't think they come up with anything. some of them got caught up in the cult of personality there. i think democrats have egged that on. i think they want desperately there to be a continued discussion about the personality of donald trump and his aggressive nature. i like it. i like that donald trump plays offense. i think there are a lot of republicans that don't like to play offense. they just want to sit back and maybe be democratic light, think that is the pathway to success. i happen to disagree with that approach. but policywise donald trump from immigration to foreign policy to energy, taxes, deregulation, that is the core of the republican party and it should be. it's a very conservative approach. elizabeth: yeah. you know, trump also celebrated
his administration's achievements in "operation warp speed" to create a covid vaccine. trump went after president biden and kamala harris saying they inherited a empty medicine cabinet, had to start from scratch on vaccines when biden and harris got vaccinated in december, so did health care workers. let's listen to donald trump here. watch. >> by the time i left that magnificent house at 1600 pennsylvania avenue almost 20 million americans had already been vaccinated. 1.5 million doses were administered on my final day alone, 1.5 million in a day. yet biden said just a few days ago that when he got here, meaning the white house, there was no vaccine. he said there is no vaccine. oh, good. say it again, joe. we took care of a lot of people including i guess on
december 21st we took care of joe biden. he got his shot. he got his vaccine. he forgot. elizabeth: biden-harris said they would not take a vaccine developed with the help of trump but they did. your reaction? >> donald trump is intellectually right. donald trump was smart enough back in january, february, last year to understand that the government wasn't going to solve all these problems. a lot had to be done through the private sector. the trump administration got rid of the roadblocks, impediments to do "operation warp speed." i think it is aptly named, came up with the vaccine, just had another one that was approved. so intellectually they will not win that argument. i think democrats are on the heels. they have not opened the schools the way they promised to do it. they have not done, improved anything in their first 40 stays in office that anybody can point to that is fundamentally
different than what donald trump was doing. elizabeth: nih director collins said usually takes five years to get vaccine. we have three in one year's time. he went after biden with one of the official acts of killing the keystone pipeline destroying thousands of jobs. i think we have sound on trump. roll the tape and let's listen. >> one of his first official acts was incredible, again, he talked about energy. he never said he was going to do this. he canceled the keystone xl pipeline, destroying -- [booing] -- 9,000 or the 11,000 jobs that you hear but 42 great-paying jobs on just about day one. under the radical democrat policies the price of gasoline has already surged 30% since the election. and it will go to $5, $6, $7 and
even higher. elizabeth: yeah. even democrats like richard trumka, labor leader and you know, joe manchin opposed the killing of the keystone pipeline. your final word, jason? >> shame on those union leaders who said biden would be better because the first thing that joe biden did was get rid of union johns. and it is playing out right now in real time. elizabeth: jason chaffetz. thank you so much. we'll be right back. stay right there. at liberty mutl customizes your home insurance, here's something you shouldn't try at home. insurance is cool. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ living with insulin requiring type 1 or 2 diabetes? how does no daily insulin injections sound? omnipod delivers insulin through a tubeless, waterproof pod. and the best part.. no more daily injections! plus, omnipod is covered by most medicare part d plans.

♪. elizabeth: welcome back. you're watching the fox business network. we're coming into the bottom of the hour. joining me is florida congressman greg stuebe from house judiciary. congressman, so good to have you back on. >> good to see you. elizabeth: good to see you. kosh patel is key house investigator. he worked underneath devin nunez on house intelligence. he is now saying there is quote, more damning evidence of fbi misconduct in the trump-russia probe but that information is still being kept under wraps and classified. what do you think this has to do with? >> thankfully trump before he left office declassified some of those document the which we have but i can guarranty you there is
treasure trove full of documents at fbi, doj. americans may never know what really happened in "crossfire hurricane." what really happened when the fbi as we know now was surveilling on the trump campaign. we may never know. and so until there is, we're certainly not going to know under a biden administration. they will not let the information go. it is very troubling to me as a member of congress on the judiciary committee there are things that happened at the fbi, there is bad malfeasance going on by fbi members. we may not ever get to bottom of things that occurred that directly go against the american people. elizabeth: well, for people who believe in open government and tans paren sy, what you just said, they would find that deeply concerning because patel said house intelligence under devin nunes was continuously blocked by the intelligence community, claiming you will hurt our sources and our methods. patel said we didn't lose a single source. we didn't lose a single source relationship t only showed
coverup and embarassment. this is a guy who helped unearth, uncover the antitrust steele opposition research, the dossier used by the fbi to get fisa wiretaps and also other things like the fbi misconduct with andrew mccabe lying about the leaks to the media. kash patel is no joke. he is pretty serious stuff. >> devin himself won the medal of freedom from president trump because of all of this. if it wasn't for congressman nunez, his work in the intelligence committee we wouldn't know after of what we know today, be probably the tip of the iceberg. how deep does the injustice at the department of justice go with things that occurred at the fbi? we know now that the mainstream media if he americans a lie with the russian collusion hoax. they were overtly attempting to surveil members of the trump campaign to try to dig up some type of dirt they could use against the campaign which we all know was all precipitated by
this dossier which was 100% completely false. so how much more information is out there? i can tell you this, once republicans take control of the house in 2022 i guarranty you will be working very hard with devin nunez back in as chairman of the intelligence committee to get to the bottom of this information. until then we never know. elizabeth: it is about getting information declassified. patel said he read the underlying intelligence the fbi used. there are major holes in what they were doing. he also has written himself a report about it, that is yet to be declassified. he is probably the guy to watch. you mentioned devin nunez. devin nunez spoke with our very own maria bartiromo what he found in recently unclassified government documents, congressman, that the fbi made stuff up based on an informant's rossering information on general michael flynn. let's listen to this. >> when you go through that it is frightening. imagine being spied upon by your own government.
that spy makes up a bunch of lies about everybody. they framed general flynn. it should have been house when i was chairman of the house intelligence committee. it should have been brought four years ago. we should have been seeing what they were doing running these spies during the campaign. elizabeth: this is in reference to cambridge university professor, stefan halper a paid fbi informant. alleged that general michael flynn had an encounter with a russian british grad student. that grad student said that is false. william barnett, an fbi agent, that is wrong but somehow that information was used to go after general flynn. your reaction? >> it was used to go after general flynn. now four years later this graduate student is finally finding out who the source was that was spewing these lies to the fbi. now she knows who it was that was sourcing information to the fbi which was an a complete and utter lie.
devin nunez is right, some of the most decorated general in our military being surveiled on by the fbi under false pretenses. that should make every american very earn concerned about the safety and security of our country. fbi and doj weaponized to go after conservatives, go after political targets. very unnerving as a member of congress. all americans should be very concerned about it. elizabeth: at the center of this is abuse of the court, the fisa court meant to catch terrorists. the fbi found to have abused that court. potential perjury charge coming from john durham in his criminal probe? the doj has a page dedicated to the john durham probe of the fbi trump russia abuses. what do you think will happen there? >> i hope the biden administration, his new ag won't tamp down things john durham has been doing. members of congress have been told over a year, john durham investigation is coming, it is coming. it still hasn't come.
when will there be justice for all the things that occurred at the doj? i'm very concerned about the investigation. now that biden is in the white house, his people are in charge of the doj we'll never get to the bottom of this. john durham will never complete his investigation. i hope that is not the case. his investigation should be complete and we as members of congress and the american people should find out what occurred. elizabeth: as years go by, people start to talk in washington. so that is something to look forward to. congressman greg stuebe, thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me. elizabeth: just ahead fox news contributor deneen borelli. antifa riots yet again in portland, oregon. yet again they turn violent but now they're rioting over president biden's immigration detention facilities at the border in texas. the story next. >> local law enforcement be allowed to do their job. will they be allowed to go out and arrest? if arrested and charged, will

this time against biden's bored he detention facilities in texas. your reaction? >> well, liz, it is obvious nothing will ever be enough for these domestic terrorists, these, this radical mob. now they're claiming that they're in the streets because of president biden's immigration policy where weeks ago, months ago, it was for something else. they have been in the streets, liz, since former president trump was elected. this was in 2016. so these folks have been out in the streets wreaking havoc, causing chaos, massive destruction, and they are out there continuously because they know that, they continue to do it because they're not going to be held accountable f they're arrested, they're released immediately. this is ridiculous. i feel bad for citizens, the people in these communities who don't feel safe anymore. these small businesses. but something needs to happen. where is the local government on

in the city of fresno. why did he, looking at a shot of him inside of the french laundry restaurant. what is this about? why is he stepping in it again? >> because he is about as brazen as it gets. i guess maybe in second place behind andrew cuomo in new york. this is a guy who is really, i think, emblematic of, especially democrat governors across the country, impose tyranny on the own citizens without following rules they imposed on themselves. in gavin newsom's case, as us mentioned caught famous dining indoors in enclosed room elbow to elbow with health lobbyists in french laundry restaurant in napa which most americans cannot afford. he is caught not surprisingly with comedian george lopez

that is what critics are saying. move on to matt ply meyer berkeley teachers union president. he has been advocating shutting down schools in california. he is caught on video taking his daughter to a in-person private sc gorilla momz says he is a hypocrite. schools are unsafe while dropping off his daughter at a school. your reaction? >> we've seen this routinely, haven't we. union officials telling everyone, stay home, stay safe, protect teachers. meanwhile the same officials are tropical locations yucking it up beside the pool this is another example of that. this is a pretty horrific one. this guy is telling public school students and public school families, no, you can't go back. we are going to prevent you from going back. don't tell us how much children are suffering. this is about getting teachers unions as much as they can.
meanwhile he realizes how important it is to have students in school. that is proved by his behavior as he drops his daughter off at a private school. pretty disgusting. elizabeth: it is getting so bad in california, that the supreme court has to step in and say yes, you can have church services indoor services open. the supreme court saying that for california churches. california churches are saying we can do it safely. people need their spirituality and their religion at this dire time of the pandemic. people in california say you guys are just making it worse for us out here. your final word, vince? >> they're not following the sighness either. that is the most despicable thing about all this stop preaching you will follow the science and turn a blind eye to it, we know that people need to re-engage in their society in a safe way. elizabeth: okay. vince coglianese, thanks for joining us. come back soon. >> thanks so much. elizabeth: coming up texas attorney general condition paxton, he is going to take on this story, ken paxton, texas
