4:02 pm
calling leners accusations the equivalent of a strike. >> he was standing around the street with a gun and that woman came around the corner and he just shot at her, bam, bam, bam. >> that was just the start. we are live at the beach community which became a killing ground in daylight. a question tonight, is big government becoming a very big brother? concerns mounting in the wake of bombshell leaks revealing our government is monitoring the phone records and internet traffic of american citizens for years. some saying the top secret nsa program involving our phone records is an overreach that puts liberty and privacy at risk. others view the snooping as necessary to protect millions of americans from those that would wish to harm us. in fact, michigan congressman, mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee telling fox news this exact
4:03 pm
program played a role in foiling at least one terror attack. president obama wraps up a meeting with china's president. he slooif for us tonight in palm springs california. did any of this snooping news come up in the president's meeting today? >> reporter: it did. here's why. the administration was wanting to go on offense with the chinese at this minisummit over the last few days because of all the chinese cyberattacks, not just on the u.s. government but u.s. businesses that feel like they're under assault ligright from their property from the chinese hacking. the administration wound up a little bit on defense here at these talks because of all the revelations about u.s. surveillance programs. the president is trying to make the case that they're two different issues because the chinese hacking involves stealing intellectual property but the president says this is
4:04 pm
about protecting americans and finding a balance between security and privacy. republican critics say this is an abuse of power. take a listen. >> we're going to have to find ways to deal with this big data in ways that are consistent with our values. in ways that protect people's privacy. that insure oversight, and strike the right balance. >> this is a dragnet. it's an overreach and we have to find out why this is justified simply because of the nsa wants to do some data mining. >> there's also the hypocrisy part for the president since he attacked the bush administration for this surveillance and now he has expanded on that. the white house pushed back on that. the top officials saying, look, they had at least 13 briefings with members of congress to tell them in and read them in on these programs.
4:05 pm
that's a big difference from the bush years that they offering up this information and having congressional oversight. something that didn't happen in the bush years. >> we watched in our reporting the story go from a breaking news whimper to this out cry for what is going on. now it look likes the federal government is going after whoever linked the information on these programs. >> that's right. new information today coming into fox that it appears they're in the early stages of launching another criminal investigation. that will put holder, the attorney general in the hot seat and, in fact, moments ago at a briefing here in california, ben rhodes said the administration is also doing an assessment of whether or not these leaks of classified information in recent days will make america less safe by giving terrorists too much information. take a listen. >> there's a review underway, of course, to understand what potential damage maybe done. as it relates to any potential investigations, we're still in the early stages of this.
4:06 pm
obviously the justice department would have to be involved in that. so this is something i think will be addressed in the coming days by the justice department and the intelligence community. >> reporter: let's not forget the justice department already underfire for appearing to have an over zealous investigation in the case of the associated press of their phone records having gone through in a leak investigation and our own james rosen at fox news. all of that put pressure on eric holder and it appears now he'll have another media leak investigation that will be open. >> it truly say storm forming around him at this point. let's talk about the president though. he had a little dinner diplomacy last night. >> reporter: yeah, i talked to bobby flay of iron chef fame and the state department called him in recent days and asked him to come out here for this summit with the american and chinese
4:07 pm
president and cook an all american menu to show case american cuisine. he put together lobster tamalae and cherry pies. nothing more american than that. the white house is stressing that bobby flay flew himself out here. they didn't want to look like the taxpayers were flying the chef out. >> i understand the president actually asked him if he would like to open restaurants in his country. >> reporter: yeah, maybe there will be economic development out of these talks after all t. chinese president said it was so much he might have him in china. >> interesting. good to see you. thank you. turning to the scandal surrounding the internal revenue service and it's targeting of conservatives and other groups and one irs employee firing off claims by the former head of the agency tax-exempt arm that the targeting was a work of a few so-called rogue agents in

4:09 pm
of our inventory. they know exactly what cases we had. how old they are, how long they have them and stuff like that. so these two rogue agents running amuck for three years or three months would never happen. he said it was an irs lawyer in washington paperwork on the conservative groups. >> has anyone been fired? >> no, lois lerner is on paid administrative leave and the former acting irs director, steven miller, he was allowed to re-sign early but the investigation continues and some house republicans say this scandal is not going away. >> getting to the bottom of these things, government on it's own, they don't police themselves on their own. even if we're aware of abuses within them. to find out what happened and who did it and many times people will go without consequences. the irs did announce
4:10 pm
