2:19 am
>> nothing specifically changes to medicare. that has nothing to do with this bill. jillian: as we know that's not going to necessarily be the case, but would you be happy with this? >> in my opinion the significant bill is stronger than the house bill. i would be happy to move something similar to senate bill but a lot of negotiations this week and will probably be something in between and i don't know where yet. jillian: okay, dr. nicole saphier. rob. rob: thank you, ladies, 19 minutes after the top of the hour, heros making ultimate suck fees for the country. evidently a man who takes the knee for the anthem that deserves an award for bravery. >> we all have an obligation no matter the risk and regardless of reward to stand up for fellow men and women. rob: the new honor for colin kaepernick courtesy of aclu, your comments are pouring in on this one. and like mother, like daughter,

2:31 am
probe and also the same agent was on the robert mueller special counsel, caught sending antitrump text messages to a colleague, but hillary clinton unfazed in this instead she's taking aim at the senate's newly passed tax plan. >> in the last 24 hours the senate passed this absolutely horrible tax cut plan, okay. now, it's great for donald trump and his family, it's great for the billionaires who support him, this could not be a more blatant and insulting attack on hard-working americans and we can't let them get away with it. rob: so much hysteria around this tax plan but is this renewed probe that we are talking about bigger than hillary clinton thinks? here now to debate that is the spokesperson for america first action pack, katrina pearson and democratic strategists chuck rocha, guys, thanks so much for coming on the program this
2:32 am
morning. we start here with peter, this is the gentleman we are talking about here, part of hillary clinton probe and also in bob mueller probe into president trump and apparently he does not like the president very much and has said so in text messages, katrina, we will start with you, does this surprise you that there appears to be this kind of bias within the fbi? >> no, it doesn't surprise me at all. hillary clinton clearly is trying to stay e ref lent and she's very comfortable and confident that she will continue to get away with all of the mischiefs that she's done. we are talking about mueller team, stacked deep with democrat donors. i see in reason why the house doesn't move forward with contempt charges. the department of justice and fbi have been blocking requests through subpoena it is house issued. we are talking about a body that
2:33 am
needs to be investigated. of course, we have to investigate the in factors at this point because the bias is absolutely clear. this doesn't look good, does it? >> it doesn't, i will remind everybody that the republicans are in control of everything in this city, they have the white house, the house and the senate, if they want to open any kind of investigation, i welcome that, they can do anything they want to. for a democratic consultant it's news to my ears because people are ready to move past hillary clinton. if there was any wrongdoings, they have every right to open up every investigation they want to just like they have done with russia and other things. rob: that's a good point. >> for the first time chuck and i agree on something. that's one of the things that a lot of people have been upset about with attorney general jeff
2:34 am
sessions, if he's not going to appoint special counsel to investigate, the house has no choice with to move forward with contempt. suddenly now they want to make people available to talk to the house after the requests, threatening of being in contempt. that's unacceptable. we are talking about millions of dollars that private citizens to have been paid through hiring attorneys to fight this ridiculous russia case. this has to be justified. rob: let's go back to hillary clinton scandal, before the election, james comey came out and requested or suggested that no charges be filed against him, a lot of people said, that's really out of his purview to make that kind of statement and then you see this kind of behavior as well and starts to make you wonder, was it a preference that donald trump not win the election? >> it's been clarified, rob, if you look at james comey, this guy peter was the same guy that
2:35 am
helped him draft the statement prior to a lot of this information coming out. of course, you have a team right now under mueller who shouldn't even be in charge. rosenstein included. they should have stepped aside and they haven't and now we see that they've been covering for people inside their own team that are bias against the president and they weren't fired and that's the problem here, that individual is still at the fbi. rob: let me go over to chuck, i want to talk about the tax plan real fast, you're probably not a big proponent of it but we have seen a lot of progress in the last ten months, gdp has exploded, we are seeing jobs come back, is this tax plan as bad as the democrats are trying to paint it? >> it is, rob, you made my case government is doing better, the economy is doing really good, you don't give tax cuts when the government is doing good and the job economy is doing good. donald trump talks about doubling the stock market and
2:36 am
gdp growth is growing up. that's not the time you give fat cats in wall street more money. rob: if millions of jobs come back to the united states, that's a bernie sanders-style idea in in and of itself? >> absolutely, if you're going to -- they want to give it back to -- rob: you want to see the guaranty on the paper. >> i would like to see workers get a raise, workers haven't had had a raise in 20 years. >> the reason why it isn't going to well is because of optimism has brought to the country in anticipation of this tax plan. rob: there's definitely economic optimism despite everything else. thank you for coming on this morning. jillian. jillian: u.s. and south korea kicking off largest exercise ever as nuclear threat with nuclear war with north korea emerges. starting today more than 230 fighter jets are taking part in
