2:00 pm
>> eric: hello, everyone. i am eric bolling with eboni k. williams and kat timpf. we are "the fox news specialists" ." despite the left wing freak out, and when i say left-wing, i include politicians, pundits, left-leaning media. despite their collective freak out, president trump is forging ahead in the wake of the james comey firing. the hysteria from the president's enemies is morphing into an all-out assault against the administration. >> very bothersome, very disturbing to me. i think, in many ways, our
2:01 pm
institutions are under assault. >> the republican party is losing any resemblance to a traditional western political party, turning into something more commonly found in the developing world, a platform to support the ego, appetite, and interests of one man and his family. >> this is a fight for the death, it's all about democracy. when all of this is over, what kind of country are we going to have? >> i think this is a potentially more dangerous situation than watergate, and we are in a very dangerous moment. >> eric: it is getting to the point of parity, and all of this absurdity ignores the one critical issue. what has president trump done that a president isn't allowed to do legally? people like the constitutional law professor john turley are taking the air out of the conspiracy balloon. >> i don't see the underlying crime here.
2:02 pm
when we talk about the russian influence and collusion, there's not any evidence i've seen of collusion. with watergate, that people have been talking about, there was a serious crime that led to the cover up. here you seem to have a cover up without a crime. >> eric: that is one of the things we were talking about last week. the difference between the watergate scandal, the watergate reality. it wasn't a conspiracy theory. it was a conspiracy. they were caught red-handed paired we are still waiting for donald trump to have done something wrong, yet everyone is calling for a grand jury and special prosecutor. >> eboni: you are right. pat buchanan made the important distinction. there was a crime come proven. we are definitely not there yet. we will see if people let this unfold. >> eric: one of the sound bites we played on the sunday show, james clapper, the massive senate hearing where he lied about the nsa spying on
2:03 pm
americans. >> kat: i don't trust clapper at all. i think it's overblown. the media should be asking questions. that's fine, but they should be able to talk about something else sometime. i'm not releasing that. >> eric: they have one thing on their mind. russia. let's meet today's specialists. he is the chairman of the conservative political action committee gopac, veteran republican strategist, coached state leaders and candidates and he specializes in traveling to just about every corner of america. he has eaten a meal and stayed overnight in 40 states. david avella. she is the host for boston herald radio. she has interviewed newsmakers like president donald trump. she is also a model to raise money for the nonprofit dress for success, but she specializes in fishing.
2:04 pm
adriana, want to start with you. james clapper not only lied to a senate panel, i remember watching this interview. as the dni was being interviewed by diane sawyer and she said what about these london bombers? he had no idea that the london bombers were caught three hours earlier. here is a guy, we are interviewing him as an expert but that he is uninformed and has lied to us. >> he has lost the confidence of the american people, especially when you highlight with the nsa. under oath he said, he denied knowing anything about intelligence surveillance of average civilians. then we learn that's not the case. he has lost the american people's trust, and then even with benghazi, he wasn't exactly forthcoming. i don't know why these left-wing leaning media outlets continue
2:05 pm
to have him on other to disparage donald trump. >> eric: he fits right into their narrative. their narrative is we need to dig deeper into donald trump. meanwhile, where is the crime? >> david: there is no crime. every day, it is the media asking the same questions over and over. what did you do about russia? what'd you do to cooperate with them on the election, and the next week, last week you said you didn't do anything. but what if you do do something? should you be brought up on that? it's the same question. >> kat: you wouldn't really get rid of the press briefing. government by the people, for the people. you have to have the opportunity to ask those questions. >> david: there are plenty of ways for the media to ask
2:06 pm
questions. he did an interview with lester holt. you have facebook live, social media outlets. people are going to hear from this president. >> kat: i wouldn't mind a donald trump facebook live. >> eric: i am in favor of the press briefing as well. people would like to see them continue but charles krauthammer said on friday we got along without press briefings, televised press briefings a long time ago. his point was come he can still brief the press. you don't have to do it on tv every day. >> eboni: i'm not married to them. i think there are other ways to get this information out. i think a lot of these problems the white house is seeing are their own creation. i think they have competing narratives. inefficient messaging. may be to president trump's point, it can be eradicated if there is a singular message,
2:07 pm
something more consistent with what people can understand. >> eric: so many good things going on in the trump administration right now. jobs market, wages, stock markets going up, home prices going up. consumer confidence on 16 year highs. if the only thing the media wants to talk about is what about russia? >> eboni: sounds like the same problem hillary clinton's campaign had during the election, and i faulted her campaign, so i'm going to fall to the white house. take the narrative back. while everyone else is obsessed with a special prosecutor, i am talking about the deal i made in china. >> eric: you watch the press briefing, sean spicer goes out and does 15 minutes on all of these. how many things are going well, the successes in china. not one question asks about tha
2:08 pm
that. >> kat: which is why i think it could help if he appoints a special prosecutor. it would go away. >> adrianal: i'm not in favor of a special prosecutor. we have the house doing an investigation. in the fbi. if we don't have, if we don't respect these groups, then we should fix that problem. i think that's enough. mitch mcconnell and speaker ryan say this is enough. let the three bodies do their job. >> kat: got to go with pauline pauline. >> eric: all of the hysteria from the washington elite, president trump getting some surprising support clinic unexpected source. robert gates, former defense secretary. >> philosophically, i am in agreement his disruptive approach. in government, i'm a strong believer in the need for reform
2:09 pm
of government agencies and departments. i also think on the foreign policy side, there is a need for disruption. the question is, obviously, in the implementation of disruptio disruption. >> eric: david, gates is a straight shooter. he worked for president obama and he also worked for george w. bush as well, and he is saying he would like the disruptive strategy. cornyn four that's my donald trump as president. you had people on the right who wanted disruption, just as you had bernie sanders motors who wanted disruption. the desire for disruption is equal among those on the left and the right. let me add one other thing, it's so funny that now they media, and even situations like this, want to focus on an election that's 18 months away, saying his approval rating is 30%. that means republicans are going to be destroyed in the next election. they didn't know 18 minutes
2:10 pm
before the election results what was going to happen. now we have a media that wants to obsess over how donald trump is doing right now based off polling numbers that they are coming out with. that's why gates' comments are so credentialed building for president trump. that he's doing the right thing, that he's the disruptor that americans voted for. >> eboni: disruption is great. my mother voted for donald trump largely on that basis. she wanted to see a change. also to gates' point, the way goes about. i'm not going to accuse the president of anything preand we have no evidence of anything but there are those of us who want to see what that looks like. 29% approve of the way comey was fired. 32% are like me. we don't have enough informatio information. the aclu coming out and asking for this information through the free develop -- freedom of information act.
2:11 pm
take some of the cloud of suspicion away. >> kat: some people are satisfied. some people are saying if you disruptive and you do things in a way donald trump just weathers going to be questions paid why did you fire comey. wait so long and then do it all of a sudden. the reason you didn't treat hillary canton fair enough? people are going to have these questions. if they are not satisfied, we should get answers in order to move on. there is no legislative or executive way to make the minds of americans stop thinking about something. >> eric: i agree but i would point out that amongst donald trump babies support, he's extremely popular. >> kat: of course. >> eric: it is may 15, 2017. we have three years, i mean, give it two years before you start really worrying about expanding the base. he has to solidify his base commit my opinion. >> adriana: there has been
2:12 pm
polling done saying if we could have the election now, the majority of trump supporters would be all in and vote for him again. going back to the rigged media, which is the left-wing media, it's been totally unfair to this president. since day one, they have tried to delegitimize his presidency, and they are floated all of this fake news about him, from palace intrigue stories that were never true to the russian dossier which was unsubstantiated. there is so much fake news that there, that i feel sorry for this administration because they are up against a hostile enemy. >> eboni: you can't feel that sorry. for me, i can feel that sorry for him. i agree with everything you said but president trump has been the creator of that type of hostility and questioning legitimacy. when we talk about false facts, they are never fair, they are never right but i think in donald trump's case, has to take it as well as he gave it. >> eric: when barack obama was
2:13 pm
present, there were maybe a handful of media outlets who would dig into everything he said said, everything he promised. here, with donald trump, it's like, look at the press room. >> david: the president and the media, the fight will continue. as it happens with most presidents. eric, you have a business background but what is the best way to get customers? give them what they want. donald trump gives people jobs, keeps america safe. that's what voters want republicans will have success in '18 and he will be reelected if we deliver on that. >> eric: democrats take to prepare -- we will be hearing a special

♪ >> eboni: democrats are threatening to hold the position of fbi director hostage, refusing a confirmation vote until a special prosecutor is named in the russian investigation. >> senator mark warner is the top democrat in the intelligence committee paired he wants the democratic party to refuse to vote on the nomination of a new fbi director until a special prosecutor is appointed. do you support that move? >> i think there are a lot of democrats who feel that way. he will have to discuss it as a caucus but i would support that move. who the fbi director is is related to who the special prosecutor is. >> eboni: if the fbi director position is so critical, why are democrats throwing a wrench in the process? i'm going to start with you, david. i'm not a fan of flat out refusing to appoint these
2:19 pm
critically important positions. i didn't like not offering judge garland a confirmation vote either. other instances where special prosecutor is important? if there's a conflicts, would you agree that a special prose counter is important? >> there are plenty of things, if were going to start looking for special prosecutors, there's plenty of things we can look at it here is what we are hearing out of chuck schumer, partisan pouting. they have no other way to be effective. now they're going to say we want to hold up the votes for the next fbi director until we get the special prosecutor but you know what, chuck schumer? thank harry reid for changing the rules. as long as there is 51 republicans that hold together, donald trump will get his fbi director. >> eric: knock yourselves out. disruptive democrat strategy didn't work the last time. harry reid put in place the
2:20 pm
nuclear option. here you go again, harry reid. the harry reid option, they should college. so what if he gets confirmed with 52 republican votes? too bad. >> eboni: you live by it, you have to die by it. >> adriana: it is going to blow up in their faces in the midterm elections because americans want our lawmakers to solve our serious problems, and all the democrats have been doing since president trump got inaugurated as resistance. they have been 100% obstructionist for everything he does, even his confirmation of judge gorsuch, which is an exceptional choice for these up in court. no matter what he does, they obstruct it. >> kat: everyone is so anti-obstruction. sometimes obstruction is good. i think we need to take some time and be grateful for the balance of power. i like to see it being a possibility. in this case, because of harry reid, it's not going to
2:21 pm
work, not going to happen. i still don't think it's going to go away because they won't let it and people have questions. >> eboni: when you talk about the need for a special prosecutor, by definition, when there is a conflict. we are not there yet. even if you are suspicious around this, we are nowhere near having evidence of collusion. we are nowhere near evidence of a crime. do you think the democrats will be better served to spend more time making that case instead of being this resist narrative? >> kat: absolutely. there's nothing specific to charge him with. and i think trump should be more open. if there's anything that happens, go ahead, let's go for it. being more open. if people were telling me i was colluding with russia all day long and i didn't do it, i would probably get irritated a lot also. the best thing you can do to prove your innocent essay yeah, whatever. >> eboni: why is a special
2:22 pm
prosecutor so bad? >> eric: this is what i've been saying for two weeks. it's a witch hunt. there's no reason, no crime. there is not even an accusation of collusion. if you have something in you say i found this thread, i need to, okay. maybe there's a case. but we found nothing. fbi, see cia, found nothing. but let's get a special prosecutor. that's a waste of time, money, and resources. >> kat: the democrats will look stupid if it ends up being nothing. >> david: let me remind you, we have the white house, the senate, u.s. house, 68 of 99 state legislative chambers. so what does that mean? the only thing the democrats have to do is scream and yell
2:23 pm
and obstruct and do everything they can to prevent a republican majority from enacting legislation that can create jobs and keep americans safe. >> kat: part of the reason -- >> eboni: david, when you talk about a special prosecutor, so beulaville is uncomfortable to be asked to investigate her boss. personally, i wouldn't know how comfortable i would be. it's the doj. if we don't have trust, we have a bigger problem on our hands. maybe it's not about donald trump having done some things are wrong but for the sake of preventing that type of dynamic is a special prosecutor not so bad? >> eric: every time you are not in power, you're going to call for a special prosecutor for whoever is in power for something you've heard something you believe? all it is, it is trying to take down donald trump's character and successes.
2:24 pm
>> kat: some suspicious things. the timing of comey's firing. >> eric: come on, speech. >> kat: you believe he fired comey because he was mean to hillary clinton? >> eric: no, he lost confidence. >> kat: the timing. >> eboni: never had confidence in james comey. a disturbing new report about the resurgence of al qaeda.

as a specially designated global terrorists. the same label once given to his father. >> basically saying america and american people, we are coming. you're going to feel it. going to seek revenge for what you did to my father. were going to revenge what you did. were going to revenge what you did in iraq, afghanistan. >> he wants vengeance. >> the whole thing was about vengeance. >> kat: this morning, rob o'neill, the former navy seal who killed osama bin laden, sounded off. >> they are rivals but there are secret talks going on. isis is starting to get squeezed. they are losing mosul. there is a better safe haven for them in pakistan. they are in 20 countries but a lot of them are in syria, and
2:30 pm
pakistan. it is like nailing jell-o to the wall. it's going to fall off. >> kat: we will have rob o'neill on "the fox news specialists" in a week. it's almost as if having osama bin laden for a father makes you a little bit of a messed up kid. >> eric: you are a legacy. this is where i kind of get a lot of heat with fellow conservatives. i don't think we should be fighting all of these wars. >> kat: i agree with you. >> eric: here's what happens. goes from the taliban to al qaeda, then this thing overhears isis, everyone runs over there. they are paid to fight. we start pushing them back in iraq. we start pushing back out of mosul and they are going to go to the next thing. the point is, you have to pick the fight you want to fight, not spread yourselves across four or five or six battlefield. >> eboni: they don't exist in isolation.

unfortunately we have to go back to invading these areas, whether used -- whether you think it was a mistake or not but it did happen. our armed forces are over there. they are responsible now. their lives are at stake and i want something that's going to make sense for them. i am concerned about pulling out. >> kat: do you agree or do you want to go after it? >> adriana: i understand you eric. we don't want to be spread too thin but radical islamic terrorism is the driving force behind the refugee crisis. if we don't address boko haram, then we are not going to fix their refugee crisis. they have displaced nigerians. refugees coming out of iraq and syria. we have to address it. innocent civilian safety. were going to keep having this refugee crisis on our hands. collectively, the united states and nato needs to come together
2:32 pm
and destroy all forms of radical islamic terrorism and all of the splinter groups. not just isis. the list is long. >> kat: people will be on our side and they're not in everything flips. it's not that simple, is it? >> david: it's why we need our border to be secure, we know who is coming in. that's why what the democrats are doing with the fbi director is so dangerous. how did we learn about this intelligence? from the lead al qaeda person at the fbi. a leaderless fbi puts us in a danger. that's why what the democrats are doing is so dangerous. >> kat: north korea meanwhile his escalating tensions with its neighbors in the u.s. yet again. conducted a successful missile test over the weekend. experts are calling it a key advance in the development of a long-range missile capable of
2:33 pm
hitting the u.s. trump administration is warning the test threatens any hope of a peaceful resolution of the crisis. >> having a missile test is not the way. she can sit there and say the conditions but until he meets our conditions, were not sitting down with him. >> kat: that's tough. >> eric: the difference between north korea and what we just talked about his north korea is vocally threatening us and saying they have a missile that can reach the continental united states. whether it can or not is still up for speculation. i think the trump administration is doing the right thing. it has the uss carl vinson in the area. we need to lean on china to put some massive legitimate military threats and pressure in the area. it's a far different cry from this hypothetical war with the west that terrorist groups are
2:34 pm
waging. this is a real threat we can feel. >> eboni: to nikki haley's point, we talk about diplomacy being the preferred option but it doesn't seem like north korea wants that at all. >> adriana: it doesn't work. all of those years under president obama, he talked about strategic patience, another way of saying doing nothing. sanctions have failed to work and i would like to see diplomacy and sanctions work before we take a risk on a military operation which could be devastating. it could go wrong. but the difference with north korea, the leader doesn't care about his people starving. >> kat: sanctions are tough. >> adriana: 's people are going to get hurt, they are going to starve and he is not going to care. kim jong-un will do anything to hold on to power. my fear is that more sanctions are not going to work, but then what do we have left? >> eric: these 6-ton, 12,000-pound bomb we dropped on afghanistan.
2:35 pm
we know where those installations are, and we can eliminate their ability to deliver. >> david: the north korean leader has made clear he wants to bring destruction to america. we should take them seriously. americans give billions of their tax dollars to have a military that's better than any other of the world, and we don't need to outsource it to china to get north korea to help us out. we don't need to outsource to rush out to have them help us with north korea. if he wants to continue to rattle and make noise and antagonize america and continue the missile launches, america should use every tool we have in our arsenal. >> eric: a libertarian would agree with that. >> kat: if we have to. >> eric: strong allies. >> kat: if there is no other option. chelsea manning is about to release from military prison and she will be getting benefits

>> eboni: welcome back to "the fox news specialists." our specialists today are adriana cohen and david avella. private chelsea manning's had to be released from military prison tuesday and she will be getting a softer landing than many expect. manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for giving away hundreds of thousands of documents to wikileaks in 2010. president obama granted clemency to manning. manning served seven years in prison. when manning departs, she will remain active duty but unpaid

2:42 pm
released. if you're going to say there is no evidence on russia. >> eric: if bradley manning, now chelsea manning was giving away locations and military movements, there is no way of quantifying. >> kat: i hate when people say, chelsea manning releases information, releasing information of wrongdoing. it was earnest to expose wrongdoing. people say. >> eric: in his mind, the wrongdoing was that we were at war. >> kat: people saying that shows you won't be able, that you can threaten national security and get away with it, there were consequences. seven years in prison is a long time. 35 years is longer than murderers and rapists. i think this is perfectly fair. commute the sentence, absolutel absolutely. >> eboni: i hear you two debating the intention and that being an important distinction.
2:43 pm
doesn't make a difference? >> david: there is a far bigger issue appeared what's the value of a security clearance when you can have one and give giveaway national security secrets and get slapped on the wrist with seven years? >> eboni: can you distinguish it from snowden? >> david: major u.s. secrets given away. that is treason. in this country, treason can be gone all the way to death. chelsea manning gave national security -- we don't know what the president's ultimate thoughts were when he commuted her sentence, but there are many who believe it was because of her political persuasions. >> eboni: well, that is pure speculation. >> david: we don't know the reason. >> eric: if you're going to commute a sentence of someone who is a traitor, so more and who way military secrets, what are you telling the next person? >> kat: he spent seven years
2:44 pm
in prison. >> eric: that's not enough. >> kat: i don't want to spend seven years in prison. >> adriana: when someone is given a high level security clearance, they need to respect it. when they are reckless with that information like hillary clinton was, they are putting our nations security at risk and we should be tough on these people whether it's a high-level politician like hillary clinton or a member of the military, even a civilian. we should be held at the same standard, and that's why it was egregious that hillary clinton destroyed 33,000 emails. she was reckless with classified information and she got a free pass. i understand what you're saying. chelsea manning years. hillary clinton has faced zero consequences period >> kat: not every situation is about hillary clinton. >> adriana: we know she was reckless with classified information. >> eboni: chelsea manning, we
2:45 pm
are having a greater conversation around the political implications. as an attorney, i wouldn't want that to be part of her legal outcomes. >> eric: president obama is the one. that's insane. you are telling the next whistleblower, the next treasonous trader that if you're going to do something, you can get away with it too. >> eboni: we should not do this, we agree. i'm not convinced it was about political leanings. nearly crowned miss usa creating a massive uproar in her response about health care.

2:50 pm
privilege and why? >> i'm going to say it's a privilege. as a government employee, i am granted health care, and i see firsthand that to have health care, you need to have a job. we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we are given the opportunity of health care and jobs to all the american citizens worldwide. >> kat: it is causing a freak out by the left, all for daring to have a reasonable opinion. i hate this idea that because you say health care doesn't always have to come for the government, essentially what she was saying, that that means you want everybody to die or something. i don't understand. >> adriana: it is a false choice. good for her for speaking her mind to not being afraid to be a little bit different. i agree with her. i think health care is a privilege, not our right. i think she is pro job -- i like that she is pro job. i like what she had to say and i
2:51 pm
think it's sad in our country that there are people who attacked her online, they can't handle diversity of thought and opinion. we should all learn from one another. different opinions and come to your own conclusions without attacking her. she is obviously an intelligent woman. she is going places. >> eboni: here is the good news. as a former contestant, i can tell you should not be judged on the content of your answer. were going to have different opinions. but the delivery. conservative answer on health care. i said no, they are going to do the right thing. that judging panel was presumed to be more liberal but they still crowned her which i think speaks volumes about the system. to her point, i agree. a lot of people get this wrong. it's not a right, it's a privilege. she says affordable health care
2:52 pm
should be a privilege and jobs are important. what about the working poor who get up and go to work and still don't have health care? that's an important issue. >> david: republicans need to recruit her to to run for mayo. >> eric: we don't want to lose her. we want to keep her. we need more like current government. the writer versus the privilege argument. if it is in the constitution, it's our right. nowhere in the constitution does that say you have a privilege of getting health care. john roberts may disagree peer he sought a different way and that's why we have obamacare but good for her. >> kat: i hate this i do that you get something from the government you can't get anywhere else. often private solutions are better. it keeps you from finding what could be the best solution. >> eboni: i not sure that's what she was saying.
2:53 pm
she works for the government. i think the problem for me is i think you should work and have health care accordingly. i hate there are many of us that do work. the working poor, many of whom voted for donald j. trump, they believe that people who participate in the economy, health care should be something they can afford. >> david: for most americans, it's not about privilege or right, it's about service. if you can't get to a doctor because of a doctor shortage, your insurance company is left, you can't get service. when you do, you want to make sure it's good quality. that's why lawsuits need to be dealt with. there are many things republicans need to deal with with health care. it starts with service. >> eric: we are having a doctor crisis. i was in boulder, colorado, over the weekend. my son spent the day in the emergency room.
