"fox & friends" is the show you are watching. come on in the mezzanine level. ainsley: brian, welcome back. brian: i just missed friday. that was it there was a lot going on. steve: there was. brian: tornadic news cycle we are in nothing stops for five seconds. steve: there is civil war at our house right now because in the final four it's going to be villanova where two of my kids went versus kansas which is my alma mater. this will be the worst

saturday night this saturday night in history. ainsley: who are you pulling for? steve: keeps. hello, i'm from kansas. ainsley: holy week. yesterday was palm sunday. this weekend is easter. brian: always sports with you. what's going on with that? steve: once every quad rinal i will take about sports. ainsley: he didn't get the exact fund go ahead he wanted for the wall he got 1.6. that can't be used to build one of those prototypes. he is finding a loophole in it. there is a lot of money that went to the military and the military to fight terrorism. steve: that's right. here's what the president tweeted out yesterday. because of the $716 billion, gotten to rebuild our military, many jobs are created and our military is
3:03 am
rich again. building a great border wall, with drugs which has poisoned and enemy combatants pouring into our country is all about national defense. build the wall through m. we believe the m stands for military. in fact, the president said that they are going to start work on the wall today, which he referred to as an initial down payment by getting that $1.6 billion. brian: remember what paul ryan told us. he believes with the money there, they can get 73 miles done. and he says you can't build all of it at once anyway. so by september, they will be ready for more funding for the wall. by that time. what i want to get down to, is was the speaker of the house candid with us on thursday when he said that we can build any type of wall we want? steve: no. brian: because he did say that to us on thursday. can you build any type of wall you want. i was watching ed rollins
3:04 am
say he is reading from the 2036 page bill and it says no concrete structure. steve: that's what it said last week. that was our question to the speaker. he said they are going to repair it there is a way that the president can take some of that money. >> congress. if the president were to -- he could then say i'm going to take the money from the military and i'm going to build it to build the wall so that we can stop the human trafficking that's going across the southern border. obviously, congress might not like that because that's not how they allocated the money. their recourse because the way things are set up. the executive branch is going to spend the money. can you imagine if congress were going to sue this president, if paul ryan and mitch mcconnell were going
3:05 am
to sue the president to stop building the wall. that would be delicious irony. ironically if they did do that it would end up in the supreme court there are ways to use the money to build the wall. ainsley: 1.6 is a down payment for the wall. hoping to get more money. if he uses the military funding that will be very interesting. is he promising to do this. so you are saying that he has the power. they can allocate the money for the military but he has the power to go above them and say i want it to be spent on the wall. steve: congressional low indicates the money and the president spends it, the executive branch. who is building prototypes? army corps of engineers. brian: private companies represented it and they hope to get the contract. couple of things. it's been five minutes so let's talk russia, can't go five minutes without talking about russia. we know what happened with the poisoning.

yesterday on msnbc not singing out of the talking points hymnal from the democrats, she essentially said mrs. clinton, please, just stop it. listen. >> so for those of us in states that trump won we would really appreciate if she would be more careful and show respect to every american voter and not just the ones who voted for her. i understanding the point she was trying to make, but, it felt like she was criticizing the voters and i would draw -- talking about drawing a line. i would draw a line there. i have a great respect for missouri voters. there are a lot of reasons they voted for donald trump. some of which i completely understand. brian: senator mccaskill let her know this is pure politics. for those who are in donald trump won states i appreciate if you were more thoughtful about your comments. excuse me, you should say it is wrong to categorize a gender or block of voters in that respect regardless of
3:09 am
your party and beliefs because it's inaccurate not like it's going to hurt my political prospects because i don't live in california or oregon. ainsley: you think she should have been tougher on hillary. brian: she told just us the only reason she is in a state that trump won. made it clear when they saw the congressman win in pennsylvania. you guys are using me to get votes in districts that i won. jon tester especially. ainsley: i took it as she doesn't know middle america and doesn't know my voters. then i wondered why is she a democrat if most of her voters are republican if she wants to represent. maybe not. he won by 19 points in that state. steve: he won a lot. and claire mccaskill is trailing. clearly it's politics. how many times are the republicans going to cut up things that nancy pelosi and hillary clinton said, turn them into tv ads to blow them up in their face? a million times. ainsley: send in your emails.

3:17 am
democrats showed the democrats had a 15-point lead and now fast forward to today, it is currently 5 points. the democrats still leading 46 to 41 to the republicans. what's going on? >> and it's to be expected that the party out of power would still be sort of leading in a generic battle poll like this. but, you know, when you go back a couple of months, you know, the republicans were on the mat. they hadn't accomplished anything. they hadn't passed any of their agenda and more importantly they hadn't passed any of the trump agenda. with the tax cuts that entire narrative changed. not only was it good for them politically to actually get that passed, it actually wound up having a very positive effect for a lot of people it wasn't just crumbs as nancy pelosi tried talking about it. and i think that what we have seen since then is a general trend towards very much in favor of republicans. but, you raise a very good point about their performance last week with that miserable omnibus bill.
3:18 am
steve: gigantic spending bill. >> that gives republican no, sir reason to show up in the polls this november if that's what republicans are going to do. and i think that -- and you know while i wish trump would have vetoed the thing, it would have been terrific, he made the best case for it talking about he felt like the military was held hostage. he didn't feel like he had a choice. he had to do it in order to get the money to the military. that was a very good argument. steve: sure. >> he also took a wire brush to republicans about, you know, you didn't even read it and, you know, it's a good point. and but republicans need to move away from that. they need to carry on with the trump agenda. if they do that i think they will do a whole lot better in november. steve: well, the president was very clear. it looked like he was going to veto it but then it was okay we are going to have the signing ceremony at the white house. everybody show up and turn on the cameras. >> very good at the suspense part. nobody knew.

steve: scolded the republicans and congress. i am never going to sign another stink bomb bill like this ever again. charlie, what about our lead story where it looks as if the president is going to start construction on a barrier using that $1.6 billion he did get from the omnibus as early as today on the southern border? there have been some suggestions by his tweet maybe he will take some of that military money and through executive order declaring an emergency or whatnot, he will be able to spend that and actually build the wall. >> you know, the wall alone is one of the most important parts of the trump agenda. he understands that even as a symbol the wall is a very, very important thing, not only in terms of the agenda and the priorities that republicans should have and this president clearly has, but it's also, as a symbol, proving that we really are -- that suddenly

republicans really are serious about cracking down on illegal immigration. steve: sure. >> i think that's all part of the trump agenda that if republicans win on that, they will win. if they abandon it, and they short change it and they mock it the way they did for, you know, for the entire -- trump's entire campaign, it's going to kill them. steve: stay tuned. just getting started. all right, charlie, thank you very much for joining us live today from washington, d.c. >> thank you. steve: 6:20 in new york city. still ahead this police officer and military veteran hailed a hero for sacrificing his life during a terror attack in france. what makes someone so selfless in their service to the nation? retired army ranger sean parnell here to discuss that man's life and his sacrifice next. right. but you want to fix it. right. so who sent you? new guy. what new guy? watson. ♪ ♪ my analysis of sensor and maintenance data

3:26 am
western warriors have on the battlefield is not our machine guns or bombs. it's the love and brotherhood that we share with one another. we often think that courage is what's required to conquer fear, but that's just thought the case i believe love is required. love for your country, love for your friends, love for service. serving something greater than yourself is what is required to conquer fear this pretty amazing story. president tweeted out respect and who wouldn't. amazing guy. double valedictorian in 2005 served in iraq. won an award for bravery in 2007 and award of merit in 2012. there is footage of him training to do just this with others a year ago that's now out. he goes in there, puts his phone on so people can hear what's going on on the inside and tells the guy send the woman out, i'm going to come here. when the police inexplicitly
3:27 am
decides to raid they hear gunshots. it's thought he is killed right there by the terrorist and dies of his injuries. it's unbelievable we lost such a quality person like. this it is. really the juxtaposition of the two cultures of western cull turks a place where we value life and liberty and freedom and islamic extremism and terrorism where the only thing that they value is death and subjugation. on the battlefield western countries use our bodies to shield women and children. islamic jihaddists and terrorists use women and children as human shields. it's a difference between good and evil. lieutenant colonel is somebody emblematic of that a warrior to his very core. he made his country proud but not only that he made countless generations and legacy of warriors proud that came before him as well. if you ask yourself a very fundamental question is why do people volunteer to serve this country, their country, whether in a police uniform
3:28 am
or battlefield, they do it because they love their family and friends and country and our way of life. they want to protect those things with up to and including their life if need be. and lieutenant colonel did that in that supermarket on that day. ainsley: we did so many stories of school shootings and hostage situations and this kind of thing. it's made all of us kind of take a step back and realize we always knew how amazing and important our military men and women women are i guess it's because i'm getting older these men and women like you, sean, you actually wear the uniform. you go into situations like this with a gun. you protect individuals who can't protect themselves. is that something that you learned in the military or is it something that you are just born with? >> i think you are always faced with a choice. you obviously learn this stuff in the military. but, at the end of the day, are you going -- it is a choice as are you the kind of person that is going to run into the flames or run away from them to save innocent life. the core of what it means to
3:29 am
be warrior in our culture today is not just defeating the enemy on the battlefield but preservation of innocent life and sacrificing yourself if need be to protect people as part of the country that you love. brian: sean, here's the thing, you want to fight a war against our enemies, now our enemies are here and fighting in the cities and cops so maligned, again, forced to be on the tip of the spear against islamic extremists thrown out of the middle east in many cases and they have been coming here to britain, france and too often in new york. sean parnell, thank you so much. i look forward to your book. ainsley: thank you, sean. >> thank you so much for having me. it's always an honor to be with you. brian: house intel chair devin nunes sending out a new warning to the doj answering subpoenas or face impeachment. dan bongino says someone needs to be held accountable and he is next. ainsley: brand new backlash for facebook. has the site been tracking all of your calls and your text messages?

dan, good morning. >> good to be here. good morning. brian: we watched over and over again over the last previous eight years as house members would call more and more obama from eric holder on down to go testify and they wouldn't be truthful. they wouldn't show up and from the irs scandal. nothing would ever happen. now something is going to change. devin nunes said. this. >> when we get back in two weeks. if the 1.2 million documents aren't in the capitol, then he should immediately move to hold department of justice and the fbi in contempt and if we have to vote on contempt, then we should immediately move to impeach those officials. steve: so so far they have released 3,000 documents. they want 1.2 million. yet, president trump's own department of justice is stonewalling congress. >> steve, i have never heard

anything like this. the department of justice and the fbi are not unaccountable. they work for the executive branch here their budgets are paid by the legislative branch. they are note unaccountable. unaccountable would be unprecedented power in our government. power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. they respond to the president. can i say, this too? i never heard of anything like this. when i was secret service agent we used to work treasury. if you got a refund and someone stole your check we would go out and investigate. i remember quite a few times when some of the cases weren't being worked fast enough and a congressman would call our office, we got on it like that. that was for a treasury check case couldn't imagine not turning over documents pertinent to one of the most important counter intelligence investigations in u.s. history? this is just incredible. ainsley: they could be held in contempt. they could be impeached. these are the officials that work for the doj and the fbi

3:50 am
will get it done. >> brian, it's like i said in the beginning, they did what they did so far with old, outdated material. if you give them the proper material, they will do a fantastic job. there is no doubt in my mind. there no doubt in a lot of the agents' minds there is a lot of things that need to be done. brian: we will have you back. art, thank you so much for joining us. president of the national border patrol. appreciate it? >> thank you. brian: go get them, art. rumors are swirling that david shulkin will be the next cabinet member fired by president trump. what's the real story? we will ask hogan gidley next hour. and former president obama's wants to make the world a better place by making a million versions of himself. carley shimkus we would like to have a million versions of her but there is only one right now and she is walking towardtowards us.

into our country is all about national defense. build wall through m, we assume that means military. much can be done with the 1.6 billion given to building and fixing the border wall. it is just a down payment. work will start immediately. and immediately meaning today he is going to start the process of building the wall u. steve: is there a way that the president could do this? yeah, i have been reading online a number of lawyers who talked about how the fact that congressional low indicates the money and the executive branch figures out how to distribute it if the president can determine that building the wall is in the national security interest, he could declare an emergency, and then they could wind up taking some of that money. congress might not like it, but they're powerless unless they sue. do you think mitch mcconnell or paul ryan would sue? chuck schumer certainly. we then it would wind up going to the supreme court. ainsley: two questions. if that's the case. the 1.6 that he is not supposed to use to build out wall. steve: concrete. ainsley: if he gets to choose what the money is

4:06 am
who is not for stopping gun violence in schools. how we get to that is the key. also, how do we pick the date and organize this? where did the money come from to bring all these kids forward? i love the motivation and love that people want to see action. i love the fact that we have got to find a way we are all on the same page. finding a way to stop school violence. newt gingrich just wondered, wait a second, who organized this? who is behind the kids? >> i think nothing would make mitch mcconnell's day more than the democrats insist on bringing up a strong gun control bill because, in north dakota, montana missouri, go down the list, every vulnerable democrat would get beaten. >> democrats running for re-election in states that trump won. >> 10 of them. at least 8 of those states, they would commit political suicide if they voted for a strong -- ainsley: he brings up an excellent point. think about claire mccaskill in missouri where the
4:07 am
president won by 19 points there. she is the democrat. she is the one that's come out saying what shea has about hillary. doesn't support what hillary said in india. if there is a gun control measure that comes in front of her, how will she vote? she wants to vote with the people of her state. but she needs to vote with the party and that would be stronger gun laws. steve: what you saw on saturday 203,000 were marching, it was one side. it was one political side. the other side kyle who was on our program on friday made it clear. look at what happened at that high school in parkland was a breakdown in law enforcement. the fbi had two chances to stop that guy. then you had members of the broward county sheriff outside the building with guns would not go in. so, look at law enforcement, a change in gun laws, he argues, would not have made a difference. brian: fox did a poll and they said listen, where do you stand on gun rules? 91% are for universal background checks.
4:08 am
84% on mental health checks. the question is how to do that. raise out rifle age 21. 72% support that ban assault weapons 60%. maybe in some cases you can look at this and say maybe there are some changes that might work. although people are concerned with universal background checks. everybody will write down you have a gun and some day someone will come to your house and take them away. background checks would make people responsible like they are cars and insurance. steve: that's one of the things that were tightened up in the omnibus bill the president signed on friday. the fix nics went in there would have liked to see the reciprocity for conceal carry it wasn't in there dan bongino a spokesperson for the nra says this about what's going on. >> i'm a parent, too. i have two young daughters in a school. they are everything to me. of course this matters to me, too. what you are doing is

wasting a lot of legislative time and a lot of public energy on solutions that absolutely will not work. you will never wipe the stain of violence from the human heart. the only question out there is what are we going to do to defend our kids against the wolves among us? trying to disarm the law abiding will do nothing to make the criminals amongst us. will not change their actions one bit. it will just put us in more danger, make us sheep. ainsley: piggy back on that. newt gingrich over the weekend i heard his interview and he said the worst cities that come to gun violence most people killed from certain cities look at their laws they have the tightest gun control laws. steve: absolutely. ainsley: criminals will find a way to get these guns. steve: one the survivors from the parkland shooting who lost his sister tweeted this out. this is the message, the survivor's name patrick petty. his sister was in the jrotc program. one of the three rotc

my clips that seems like my dreams most night. in my office watching television news that's all we hear about is russia. we don't hear there is no collusion. we don't hear the facts that after a year and a half of spending money, us sending over all of our documents and making witnesses available. there is no collusion there all we hear is russia is a huge problem for this administration. and it's just simply not. brian: what about the legal team? can you have any update who is going to be joining jay sekulow. >> obviously i can't talk about the president's personal attorneys. i'm not privy to those conversations. i guarantee you they will be out there fighting for the president and getting the truth out there which is that there is no collusion between president donald trump and the russian government. steve: sounds like joe and victoria toensing going to sign on because their firm represents some other people involve in the probe. they will not be representing the president. it sounds like according to some news reports, hogan, that as early as today, the president could expel a number of russian diplomats

in solidarity with the great british, the folks over in great britain because they expelled 2 people after that poisoning of the spy and his daughter using that toxic nerve agent. >> right. well, the president has been very clear that we will impose costs on russia when it is in our interest to do so. and, when it's in our interest to work with russia, we will do that as well. this president has not softened or weakened any position that barack obama had on russia and, in fact, he has gone much further. you will remember we gave lethal aid to the crew ukraine. we sent troops into syria. we even expanded oil exports into eastern europe. something barack obama didn't do. so this president knows what's right on the international stage and how the deal with russia and when we need them as a partner and ally to defeat isis or terrorism, he works with them. when they do things like they did in england with the

poisoning of that individual, we sanction them. we stand up against them when we need to. ainsley: hogan, let's talk about the budget bill. the president is saying or hinted around at least on twitter over the weekend that he could use all of that military funding, there was a lot of military funding going into the pocketbooks of those men and women fighting for our country. there is a lot of extra money to be used, more than what they asked for, more than what the house asked for, so, there is talk that he might use that extra money to build the wall since he didn't get the funding. he only got 1.6. steve: that was his twitter. ainsley: his twitter was saying we might use this military funding to fund the wall is that going to happen? >> i don't want to get ahead of his announcement. steve: wait, what announcement. >> if he is going to make an announcement how he spends that money to build the wall. i can say that's one of the major victories for the american people in this piece of legislation that the president pushed which was actually building a wall. i mean, that's something the president ran on. it's something one of the reasons i think he got elected. because he understands that walls work.
4:46 am
whether it's around jerusalem where they saw 99% reduction in illegal crossings or around san diego where they saw 95% reduction in the illegal crossings. the president understands that walls work. for whatever reason democrats used to be for a wall. they used to you vote for it they used to say that was important. bill clinton pushed for a wall in san diego. so did hillary clinton. for whatever reason, democrats have decided they are against security and american people in this way and the president wants to protect this nation. as you know the number one function of the american government government is to protect the american people. steve: hogan, you are leaving out the republicans. it was republican led congress came up with this bill that stripped all the stuff that the president wanted for immigration for the most part. got $1.6 billion for a fence. not a wall. >> that's actually incorrect. we actually can build a wall with this money but there are political realities that exist. brian: hogan can i stop threw because the speaker told us you can use concrete. senator schumer says you
4:47 am
can't. only improve the fence. what are you saying there? you can use it? >> it's my understanding you can hispanic caucus came out vehemently against this bill for two reasons one is because in the letter they wrote to the president it bolsters the president's deportation force, quote unquote and it builds a wall. they are against it for those reasons. steve: right. >> the secret is, this is not an ending point, actually, for the president. >> it's a starting point. we have got to do more to protect this nation. this bill is a start. you know the president ran on building the military. that's what this bill does. and the political reality exists in this town where everything we wanted to rebuild the military, something the president ran on, the democrats came forth and said every dollar you get for the military, we want for our pet projects here at home. that was the trade-off the president made. he didn't want to signed bill as you heard in his press conference. brian: if he threatened to veto earlier he might have gotten a better deal, don't you agree. >> i wouldn't say that look, we deal with a congress here who is against the president
4:48 am
from the democrat side. obviously some republicans. we can't get them all under our tent every time. but the president did get what he wanted and what he promised to do for the american people, which is rebuild the military and actually give a pay raise, the largest pay raise in 10 years to our troops. which they sorely deserve. ainsley: that's great. the reason no one knows if they can or cannot build the wall with the 1.6 it was so big. 22200 pages. there might be another shake up that secretary dr. shull cinel might be out at the v.a. >> we hear these types of rumors every day. i heard another network which is nameless fake news is on it. two months mcmaster was out. you were wrong you misreported it for two months. we all serve at the pleasure of the president. if is he not pleased, you you know it, at this point in time dose have confidence in dr. shulkin.
4:49 am
he is a secretary. he has done so it some great things at the v.a. the president wants to put the right people in the right place at the right time and that could change. steve: what i have heard in washington people close to the president is that he would like to fire him today but he doesn't have a replacement. >> i have not heard that but, again, when the president wants to make a change, he will make it he doesn't have to try. he doesn't have to guess. he has the power to do so and whether he has a replacement or not, he can still make a change. the president wants to put the best people around him. the v.a. has gone into disrepair. one of the successes in the omnibus was 84 billion in there to streamline and build infrastructure there so that our troops, the people who put their lives on the line every day get the healthcare they deserve. that's something he he wants to have happen. shulkin has been working to do that we will see if that continues for the future. brian: the word is he is under achieving. hogan thank you so much. ainsley: hogan, thank you. >> absolutely. ainsley: is there a civil

nonetheless he is going forward. there were tantalizing tweets that made it sound like he might use executive action to end-run congress. ainsley: that is what he said. because of the $716 billion gotten to rebuild the military. many jobs are created and our military is again rich, building a great border wall with drugs, poison, enemy combatants pouring into our country, is all about national defense. build wall through m. we assume m is military. much can be done with $1.6 billion to fix and building the border wall. it is just a down payment. work will start immediately. he said he would not start the wall and stop, start the wall and stop. he would build it all in one swoop. this would allow him it do that, use the military money to build the wall. brian: this is just until september. he will go back and cut a deal. maybe get the other 15 billion anyway, what is left.

whatever. the way the president can use second is tiff power to declare the emergency. congress gives the money. they allocate the money and president and executive branch figures out how to do it, whether to stop the poison, stop the drugs, national security thing or human trafficking the president has it in his power to declare an emergency and take money from the pentagon to use it to build the wall. ainsley: we told but the russian ex-former spy that was poisoned they tracked it back to russia. it's a nerve agent only found in russia. this guy dies, he is in a coma. his daughter is in critical condition. those two were poisoned on march 4th. by russia in the uk. the prime minister of uk says i will take the russian diplomats, there are two dozen here, you're leaving our country, we're not allowing you to say. she is asking other countries to jump on board. our president is talking about allegedly doing the same thing,

5:45 am
of midterm elections. it is just five points. big question, what are issues getting voters to the polls. here to debate, trump 2020 campaign re-election senior advisor katrina pierson and talk show host jimila bay. are you surprised after the stunning result in pennsylvania that went democrats way that generic ballot is five right now? >> i was surprised at that, however, i have to admit that after 2016 i really think that americans need to recognize that anything can happen and that pollsters are not the final arbiter of what is the will of the people. so while democrats can be very happy to say, well, look at pennsylvania, look at alabama, look at the fact that you know, there is this groundswell of support, there are 25 seats that pennsylvania have to defend in the senate where as republicans
5:46 am
have eight seats. statistically work is harder for democrat right now. brian: absolutely. katrina, you know all about the defying the odds, however right now the momentum seems to be in the democrats camp. how does the president reverse that being that his popularity ratings are actually going up while the party is staying stagnant? >> i think you hit the nail on the head. the party is the one that really needs to step up its game. the president is going to everything he can to maintain the house and the senate. we know a lot of times when you see this kind of momentum, it doesn't necessarily turn into votes. it is going to be a case-by-case basis. a lot of voters in the base, a lot of those who turned out for donald trump looking at these individuals who are currently in office asking themselves a couple of questions. one of them, did you vote for the tax cuts, number one? number two, are you supporting the president's agenda to keep america safe? number three, are you supporting the president's agenda to bring

5:48 am
will you show up. brian: yes. >> because a lot of, a lot of this has to do with people's day-to-day lives. jobs, jobs, and the welfare of the american family. brian: right. >> is at the heart of all of this matter. so policy matters but voting -- brian: i understand. i think you should vote how you run. that is my big problem. how are people supposed to trust the person they're voting for if they say anything to get elected. katrina, keep in mind, democrats ad 2 point edge in 2014. democrats had 2 point edge, republicans picked up house seats. a lot on the table. real quick. >> there is a lot on the table, if we're looking at pennsylvania to be a marker, conor lam essentially as republican, against his party's leadership. so moving forward i think republicans are going to have to understand they need to get behind trump and pass his agenda because their voters are not going to be forgiving if they continue to thwart his agenda

and president has been very clear, he needs to maintain the house and maintain the senate if he is going to accomplish all of those goals. republicans need to get in line and understand that for their own sakes. brian: great debate, kind of, thanks for agreeing a little bit. gave us less heartburn this morning. >> thank you, brian. brian: straight ahead, you loved him as lieutenant dan in "forrest gump" and in csi. gary sinise is telling how he is helping our heroes of fallen soldiers. next we have bill hemmer who is also a nice guy. >> nice to see you monday morning. breaking news overnight. several missiles fired on a world capital. we'll have fawout coming up. stormy dan ills raising many questions. we'll try to answer many of them. texas bomber left a video message. mike mccaul catched it. he is here live. how did american family of four die in mexico?
