tv   Americas Newsroom With Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith  FOX News  March 29, 2018 6:00am-8:00am PDT

6:00 am
but how do we find out more? >> >> bill: this breaking news from the white house at this hour, the fired v.a. secretary speaking out this morning after he was relieved of his duties and has a lot to say too and we are learning about the man replacing him on this thursday morning. good morning to you, i'm bill hemmer live inside "america's newsroom." >> sandra: good morning. >> bill: easter colors. >> sandra: i'm feeling the pastels. good morning, i'm sandra smith and shulkin called out the d.c. swamp and those who have been attacking him. the move's the latest in shake-ups tapping ronnie jackson as the new secretary of veterans affair.
6:01 am
>> bill: straight to the white house lawn. kevin does not sleep. >> reporter: i'm await and here just four. first, lets me tell you about ronny jackson taking over. he's been reduced to that press conference he had in talking about the president's health but the truth is if you look at his record even with a cursory glance you can see why the president may have a great deal of confidence he'll be able to get the job done. he'll be replacing outgoing v.a. secretary dr. david shulkin. a widely respected physician. dr. shulkin has been kind to us in explaining the thought process in what is happening at the v.a. but now it will be in the hand of dr. ronny jackson. by the way, dr. shulkin was a hair obama holdover. and dr. jackson served. a navy admiral and served in the iraq war and notably served
6:02 am
presidents george w. bush and president obama and now president trump. now he takes over for dr. shulkin whose depar tur was expected for -- departure for some time but dr. shulkin isn't leaving quietly. a blistering op-ed in the new york times why reads in part, i have fought to stand up for this great department and all that it embodies. in recent months though, the environment in washington has turned so toxic, so chaotic and subversive and became impossible for me to accomplish the work our veterans need and deserve. white house officials tell us this, sometimes on the record or sometimes on background, the president respects dr. shulkin but he was frustrated over the pace of privatization at the v.a. and something shulkin
6:03 am
thought led to his undoing in the staff. the president son his way to ohio today. he'll be talking about his new infrastructure plan and what he wants congress to do. we suspect he may stop to talk to reporters. if that happens i'll bring it to you. >> bill: an hour ago the president is taking aim at a familiar target and that's amazon. a big high flyer. what's the foundation for the criticism, now? >> reporter: okay. um, i'm going to lay it out this way for you. there'll be people out there, bill, that will say it's personal, it's two billionaires going at each other. jeff bezos is the ceo of amazon. they own the washington post. that paper has been fiercely critical of the president and consistently so. white house officials say it's not just about that. they point out amazon is a massive player on the business stage. and this isn't about that. this is about fairness.
6:04 am
and fairness and tax policy and levelling the playing field for american business. the president tweeted i stated my concerns with amazon. they pay little or no taxes to state and local government, use the postal system as our delivery boy causing tremendous loss to the u.s. and putting thousands of retailers out of business. the here's the principal white house secretary. >> people made it about the personalities at amazon and we're talking about jeff bezos here. this is about policy. you have a huge company that's done amazing things in amazon springing up in a short amount of time and really tax policy has to catch up to that. >> raj shah the company took a
6:05 am
tumble and we'll see what happens as he continues to take aim at them. >> bill: kevin corke. amazon reported $5.6 billion in profits in the u.s. and didn't pay money in federal taxes. everybody probably owns a slice of amazon through their 401(k) or uses it. you've seen the destruction at the retail level. >> sandra: it's very convenient for many families in america but the president made it clear it's not something new. he talked about this prior to being president. >> bill: we shall follow it. >> sandra: meanwhile, an historic meeting in the making as the leaders of north and south korea agree to a summit for the first time in more than a decade. it's scheduled for the southern side of the demilitarized zone. what more do we know about the
6:06 am
meeting? >> reporter: another historic meeting in the works trying to bring the korean peninsula closer to a peaceful situation. today's officials involves officials from north and south korea and they decided south korean president would hold a summit with kim jong-un friday april 27. it's only the third time since the korean war leaders of the two countries have met and the first time since the war a north korean leader will venture south of the dmv. this is part of hefty diplomacy on the behalf of president moon including inviting them to the winter olympics and some diplomacy by kim jong-un in the interesting trip to beijing and this leading up to the big
6:07 am
enchilada with the meet with president trump. >> sandra: what's the mean to the trump summit? >> reporter: that's what the focus is on in the read-out president xi sent to president trump regarding his meeting with kim jong-un he said kim commit to denuclearizition and worryingly, sandra, kim, reportedly in the session in beijing called for a quote, phas phased move for them to give up nuke and missiles and according to some people i spoke to it sounds like preconditions that have derailed these efforts in the past. in the words of my source close to the south korean president,
6:08 am
he said that's a north korean position that needs to be quote, unquote, compromised. let the dealing begin. >> sandra: greg palkot reporting. thank you. >> bill: mike huckabee. good day, good morning, happy early easter to you. you're not holding your breath on north korea now are you? >> reporter: not really, but i think the movement is a little encouraging. the hermit kingdom, its leader, the hermit himself has come out and met with china and may meet with the president in may. i think it's significant but i don't think anyone's holding their breath that it's going to be a wonderful time where everybody will toast marshmallows and sing kumbaya but maybe there's a hope forward where there's a denuclearization. >> bill: the next meeting comes in april. back stateside, secretary
6:09 am
shulkin, now outgoing, he said as i prepare to leave i'm struck by a thought, it should not be that hard to serve your country. what do you think of the changes? the conventional wisdom is the president is getting up to speed and getting people more like-mind and is that too simple of an analysis? >> reporter: it's really not. the fact is this say president who did not come into office with a lot of people with government experience nor did he come into office with people loyal to him and understood him and wanted to work for him. many people wanted jobs, positions, stature but didn't want to serve this president with that kind of fervor. it's like a coach. if the coach can't get the right kind of play as a player, he puts them on the bench. the cabinet people serve at the
6:10 am
pleasure of the president. it's not their job. they didn't get elect to anything, the president did and has a right to bring people in. shulkin is right. it's a toxic environment in washington and the travel and the wimbledon and the stuff that's chump change in the big scheme but the wolf pack of washington makes it such a distraction that a person who engages in it is no longer valuable to the team. >> bill: i like shulkin, he's been on the show and i thought his heart was in the right place. we me of on to the next and hope -- we hope on to the next and hope in the challenging job we can get something done. 30 seconds left, do you believe the inspector general within the department of justice will get answers on this dodgy dossier? >> he'd better because if the government can abuse its power and go after citizens in the private sector for political purpose and hide what they did,
6:11 am
as a country we are doomed. it's that simple. you cannot have a government not accountable to its ultimate stakeholders, its people, who are supposed to be the power not the bowels of the government. >> bill: in that job you cannot interview former employees so it can be telling in the end and an incomplete picture. mike huckabee, thank you. the verdict could come at any moment for the widow of the pulse nightclub shooter but it's what prosecutors are saying about the shooter's original target raising questions about that horrific night. plus -- >> remember, there's a lot of pressures that come with that because the inspector general, ultimately his boss is the department of justice. this is not a simple move for the inspector general to make to go after the top people in the fbi. >> bill: so devin nunes has been in the middle of this saying the abuse of the fisa allegations is
6:12 am
a big step and is it enough? the judge has looked at it six ways to sunday. that's coming up. >> sandra: and roseanne brings her sitcom back to tv and 18 million people tuned in and now president trump himself is calling up the comedienne. liberty mutual stood with me when this guy got a flat tire in the middle of the night, so he got home safe. yeah, my dad says our insurance doesn't have that. what?! you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance.

6:16 am
>> it's okay, darlene. >> how could you have voted for him, roseanne? >> he talked about jobs, jackie. he said he'd shake things up. >> have you looked at the news because now things are worse. >> not on the real news. >> bill: 18 million americans saw it in the roseanne reboot. president trump personally calling the tv star to congratulate her and it takes on the politics and we have jessica tarlov for and steve hilton from the next revolution. this was said about the phone call. >> he's just happy for me. i've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years and
6:17 am
it was just a friendly conversation about working and television and ratings. >> bill: working. i like it. steve, what's it say about hollywood? what's it say about us? what's it say about ignoring 50% of the country? what do you think on this? >> i think this is just a massive f.u. from working americans to the cultural elite. they're so sick and tired of being patronized nfor the crime of putting their economic security and their family's economic security when they go and vote and instead of being disagreed with they've been branded as fascist and nazis and xenophobes and deplorable and
6:18 am
tired of it and finally they see their argument represented fairly on the screen which is all we were doing when we voted for trump was trying to get finally some change that would make our lives better. what's wrong with that? finally they saw it on screen in a reasonable, fair and sympathetic. >> bill: f.u. means forget you, by the way. >> thank you for the translate. >> bill: highest markets, kansas city, missouri, council, ohio. >> i think it's fantastic. i think chicago was the only mass market that ranked in the top 20 in terms of the success. >> bill: interesting. >> the show is based near there so it also makes sense. i think it's important. i think it's great. having a hilary supporter and jill stein supporter is an
6:19 am
interesting twist and this is what modern politics looks like families are split and fight with each other and advocate for their side and still love each other and have dinner together. i would add there's something interesting ben shapiro pointed out and may have written an article about it the thought roseanne is representing conservative, she's pro-choice and pro-gay marriage and i'm sure there'll be an episode on more background checks on guns and i'm not sure how mike pence would feel for people who back donald trump because they were going to get neil gorsuch or another conservative job or want planned parenthood defunded. roseanne may even be a supporter. >> bill: you're taking it deeper than i thought.
6:20 am
>> why not. >> bill: it's almost a conversation we've been avoiding. >> that's what i'm here for, bill. >> bill: got it. donald trump jr. said congrats to roseanne. if you're not too busy maybe work a late-night show. seems like there's demand for the alternative view point. she writes i'd like to thank my liberals. to draft off jessica's point. how many people watched the oscars, 24 million? and that was promoted endlessly for months at a time. >> it's such a wake-up call to the cultural elite and what is great about america is we can live together and have different views and be together in our communities. that seems to have been lost in the last year or so where everything has got so toxic and
6:21 am
people just feel they can't just disagree. they have to hate them and despise them. jessica's point and ben shapiro's point, the whole point of donald trump and the reason he did well was he was not a conservative. he beat the traditional republican in the primary and appealed to people who hadn't supported republicans before because he was a populist. what is interesting is how that message can go beyond the base of the republican party. that's what he did well. and so i don't think it's fair to just describe him as not being a conservative because that's the reason he won. >> bill: you think about all the media and the choices you have today, people are still looking for quality. we'll see how the next show does. thank you, jessica and steve hilton. >> you bet. >> sandra: a family of eight feared dead after an suv plunges off a cliff. >> we have every indication to believe all six children were in there. i was at the scene two days ago.
6:22 am
i can tell you it was a confusing scene because there were no skid marks. >> sandra: the cause of the crash is not the only mystery they're trying to solve. details on that straight ahead. when i received the diagnosis,
6:23 am
i knew at that exact moment, whatever it takes, wherever i have to go...i'm beating this. my main focus was to find a team of doctors that work together. when a patient comes to ctca, they're meeting a team of physicians that specialize in the management of cancer. breast cancer treatment is continuing to evolve. and i would say that ctca is definitely on the cusp of those changes. patients can be overwhelmed ... we really focus on taking the time with each individual patient so they can choose the treatment appropriate for them. the care that ctca brings is the kind of care i've wanted for my patients. being able to spend time with them, have a whole team to look after them is fantastic. i empower women with choices. it's not just picking a surgeon. it's picking the care team, and feeling secure where you are.

6:26 am
to 19 also confirmed dead. three other children, age 12 to 15 missing. the suv in which it was believed they were all travelling went off cliff in a remote part of north california went off the cliff and prior to that they had driven across the turnout no signs of braking or skid marks. police don't know why this happened. listen to a sergeant with the california highway patrol. >> we don't know if it rolled over the edge, launched over the edge, i won't have that information until we get the data back and analyze it and see what it leads too. >> reporter: the missing children are devonte hart, hannah hart. no sign, at the moment, of those three whatsoever. >> sandra: it's a mystery. meanwhile, one of the missing children may have been known to
6:27 am
the nation. what do we know about that? >> reporter: you may remember the name devonte hart the 15-year-old i just mention. take a look at this picture of him. it's a photograph at a black lives martyr -- matter protest in 2015 and hugging a white police officer. that went viral and it also turns out the washington state department of social and health services opened an investigation just last week into the hart family in which some of the children were identified as potential victims of alleged abuse or neglect. officials had tried unsuccessful to make contact with the family as recently as tuesday as we now know given the accident was on monday. the entire family had left their home by then and some of them at least were lying dead at the bottom of the rocky shore,
6:28 am
sandra, three still missing. it's a weird one. >> sandra: jonathan, thank you. >> bill: this could be a major breakthrough in the fight to cure cancer where a study has a chem chemo-free vaccine. >> everybody should be concerned because we don't want the same thing to happen in the next election. you can't have the most important law enforcement organization in the world conducting its self -- itself the way. >> sandra: the inspector general investigating fisa abuse allegations but can he get to all the answers he needs? judge andrew napolitano breaks it down and does it go far enough? er took a loss and now he's ok again. right. yeah you can get a mortgage that avoids pmi, but there's no way to avoid mip on... . hey! this'll help. rocket mortgage by quicken loans makes the complex simple.

i'm trying to manage my a1c, then i learn type 2 diabetes puts me at greater risk for heart attack or stroke. can one medicine help treat both blood sugar and cardiovascular risk? i asked my doctor. she told me about non-insulin victoza®. victoza® is not only proven to lower a1c and blood sugar, but for people with type 2 diabetes treating their cardiovascular disease, victoza® is also approved to lower the risk of major cv events such as heart attack, stroke, or death. while not for weight loss, victoza® may help you lose some weight. (announcer) victoza® is not for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer,
6:31 am
multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. stop taking victoza® and get medical help right away if you get a lump or swelling in your neck or symptoms of a serious allergic reaction such as rash, swelling, difficulty breathing, or swallowing. serious side effects may happen, including pancreatitis. so stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area. tell your doctor your medical history. gallbladder problems have happened in some people. tell your doctor right away if you get symptoms. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite, indigestion, and constipation. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. change the course of your treatment. ask your doctor about victoza®. sixty there's >> sandra: the biggest concern by lawmakers is can the
6:32 am
inspector general make progress like an independent special counsel could. judge andrew napolitano joins us. >> the inspector general can't indict, he can't charge, he can't threaten to indict and can only interrogate people or obtain documents or information from people who are current employees of the justice department. now, fisa has been abused for generations. we talked about this off air and on air. fisa has been turned on its head. it's now used to facilitate spying on americans. mccabe and his colleagues took advantage because the fisa court say pushover. it's standard for spying is
6:33 am
lower than the constitutional standard. fbi agent knowing they couldn't get a search warrant would go to the fisa court instead under pretext it's an intelligence warrant because that court delivers 99.9% of all requested search warrants. there's not a court in the country with a number that high. >> sandra: bob goodlatte had the same concerns on the limb takes and concerns on -- limitations and concerns and here he is sharing that with everyone. . >> the inspector general can't look at it from the same perspective as congress can or from the perspective that an independent special counsel can. >> sandra: sounds like you're saying the concerns are warrant. >> but if the inspector general uncovers what he believes is criminal activity, he passes that on to main justice attorney general sessions or deputy
6:34 am
attorney general rosenstein. for all of congressman goodlatte's good intentions he too is hamstrung because he can't quin -- indict and prosecute. the most efficient investigators are people like bob mueller they have agent to interrogate you and indict you that usually instills cooperation. >> sandra: so there's a question whether there's enough. >> i agree with congressman nunes and i encourage to investigate all the abuses of fisa by the intelligence community and fbi, particularly by fbi agent who were going around the constitution and going to this court that has become a pushover for search warrants. >> sandra: what are they going to find? >> i think they're going to find a culture corruption. not in the sense of people being
6:35 am
paid off but people not following the proper procedure. it was said the history of human freedom is paying attention to procedure. when you shortcut constitutional protection even if you catch a guilty person, you damage the protections the constitution is supposed to guarantee. >> sandra: you mentioned robert mueller. he's found rick gates knew he was speaking to this russian intel agent. what do we know about this? >> this is the biggest hint that bob mueller has shown us of the existence of what the non-lawyers are calling collusion. the legal term is conspiracy to receive something of value from a foreign person entity or government when you're running a federal campaign. that very agreement is criminal. so bob gates has apparently
6:36 am
told -- excuse me, rick gates has apparently told bob mueller, when i was in the campaign i was speaking to a russian intelligence agent. wow, what were you speaking about or getting anything of value. gates is manafort's partner, before and after the campaign. gates has pled guilty to a small fraction of what he was charged with and it's a treasure trove for bob mueller. >> sandra: what else are we going to learn on the front? where will mueller go with that new information. as you called it he's only given a hint. >> the interesting question is why is he hinting at this? i think he's hinting at it because he wants to say to the no-collusion crowd, where's the collusion? i'm not going to show all of it to you until i develop it more. he's obviously going to develop it more. a person a, whose name we don't know a russian official won't
6:37 am
come to the u.s. because the minute he does they'll arrest him. >> sandra: new -- thank you for covering that. >> bill: almost 2018 and no resolution. a verdict can come in the pulse nightclub shooter's widow. closing arguments, prosecutors saying omar mateen initially planned to attack disney world. noor salman claims she had nothing to do with the plot but a jury will decide. we have more in the final hours of this trial. the prosecution revealed what it considers a major piece of evidence. what was that? >> reporter: prosecutors say the shooter and his wife were going to try to attack disney world and try to hide the weapon in a stroll perp there was -- stroller there was a picture of a stroller abandoned near the pulse nightclub and it's like trip
6:38 am
likely the stroller he was going abandon and it shows the shooter and the widow planning the attack but they argue they were together as a family and she was unaware of his plans. prosecutors say the shooter wound up not carrying the attack at disney world because he noticed orange county sheriffs as he was casing the property. the defense said she was not a partner to her husband in the relationship or in the planning. >> [indiscernible] >> reporter: the shooter's widow is accused of providing support to a terrorist organization and faces life in prison. she confessed to know what the shooter was planning and now
6:39 am
there's something else. >> reporter: they're now contending she was coerced during interrogation. one of the final witnesses for the defense testified the shooter's wife not mentally capable of understanding her confession. before the trial the shooter's wife did confess to watching her husband purchase the gun and watching terrorist videos and preparing for jihad and making statements like how bad it would be if a club got attacked and wondered where the next attack would make a splash. the final witness was a psychologist that said the wife is vulnerable and coerced to the confession and doesn't understand. interesting to note as we've been reporting, an fbi agent testified the shooter's father was an fbi informant for 10 years and the attorney general's office is investigating him for allegedly sending money overseas. >> bill: a strange twist when the news broke. we're on jury watch now, thank you, sir.
6:40 am
>> sandra: a big critic of president trump's national policy now on the netflix board of directors, susan rice. barack obama's former security director and the company saying they'll benefit from her wisdom. rice faced criticism when she appeared on talk shows suggesting benghazi was over spontaneous protests over a hateful internet video. >> bill: a good gig, don't you think? $250 a share. would i take that? the answer is yes. >> sandra: lots of people have strong feelings on this move by netflix. we'll see if it has impact on the company. >> bill: stand by on that. a violent immigrant who escaped from u.s. custody from an airport and the latest we're
6:41 am
learning about the manhunt two days old. >> sandra: and california defies state policies. who will win this argument? here you go little guy.

6:43 am
a cockroach can survive submerged underwater for 30 minutes. wow. yeah. not getting in today. terminix. defenders of home.
6:44 am
california battle over illegals. president trump offering his support to orange county said my administration stands with you.
6:45 am
the sanctuary laws release known dangerous criminals across the state. all citizens have the right to be protected by federal law. geraldo rivera, host of the g geraldo show. the state reissued guidelines to instruct everybody what to do. i don't know if the feds can trump the law in california. my bet is some judges will rule washington can. but the state is saying follow our laws, these are our guidelines. we're not telling you to avoid the feds but you can't ask if someone's a citizen. >> i think what the main point is, this is one of the emotionally divisive issues and
6:46 am
there's several sides. some people believe firmly the federal government is being draconian in terms of scooping up people that have been here for decades and the law-abiding among others and deporting them. others believe they're here illegally and unproperly and unlawfully and have no priority to be here. the battle between the state of california and similar states and the trump administration will be resolved by the supreme court of the united states. arizona went one way. they had a similar situation but on the other side of it. arizona had tough laws, tougher than the federal government. the supreme court ruled the federal government was the preeminent power and now in california, that has to be resolved. where will the supreme court go? they'll lay down guidelines on what is permissible and what the
6:47 am
federal government can order states and municipal jurisdictions to do but this is fraught with passion and emotion. >> bill: the officials have come out saying if i release a dangerous person in the community and they commit a crime it's on me. >> i like the compromised solution it sounded great to me in orange county where they list everyone being released from prison, documents, undocumented. the federal government can check the list and say here's pablo escobar, we want him on drug charges. let's get a warrants for him and you can i think this is resolved with reason, with technology, with good sensible middle of the road approach rather than california wanting to secede
6:48 am
from the union. >> bill: my sense is the leaders in that state want it stick it -- >> california's demographic has changed a lot. first of all, california used to be part of mexico. now there's many many more hispanic latino people who feel more sensitive to the undocumented than people who vo voted for the president do but we're in this together. we don't want to release dangerous criminals and not inform cops they're getting out in the community if they're dangerous criminals. on the other hand you want compassion for those who have behaved in an exemplary fashion. that's what i urge. >> bill: i heard you make the arguments. we'll see where it goes and ultimately the supreme court, i think you're right about. the book, lots of stories in here. i remember a year before the election you said hemmer, trump's going to win and he's
6:49 am
going to win because i spent countless hours with him on the set of the present tis and got to know -- apprentice and got to know the man and how he interfaces with the people and employees. what were you aware with before others were? >> there's a charisma about donald trump undeniable. i've known him 40 years but i was fortunate to be on the cast of the celebrity apprentice and be with him every day and often multiple times during the day and to see him produce that on his feet and stand up and make a monologue in a poignant way seemingly effortlessly and to come up with the ideas -- >> bill: you saw talent. >> and when she -- the show began airing how the people
6:50 am
respond. he's a movie star. when you saw him on the stage with 16 other republican candidates. can only keep you're eyes to donald trump. he's so charismatic, so accomplished, to flamboyant, no tempestuous and hilary seemed low in comparison and low-energy to use the disparaging remarks he sent to jeb bush. it was so me an almost inevitability. his election like roseanne's success was no mistake. >> sandra: go to see you, geraldo. it could be a big breakthrough in the fight in cancer why there's now a chemo free vaccine. our doctor is here.
6:51 am
6:52 am
6:53 am
6:54 am
>> sandra: researchers at stanford university are producing a test. dr. devi is here. stanford is heading up the human trials. >> they're about to start the human trials. it's exciting. it's a small human trial looking at lymphoma so it's not all types of cancer but the idea is you're using something than the traditional methods of treating cancers. we're not talking about chemotherapy where the philosophy is to kill as many cells as possible instead we're having one's immune cells to attack the cancer. >> sandra: this is the new way
6:55 am
of using the immune system to fight off and get rid of the tumors. >> we saw another type of immunotherapy coming out. so with car t people would take out the immune cells and modify them and put them back to fight the cancer. in this case, you're taking different agent that cause the immune system to attack and injecting it in one location and by doing that maybe those cells will start to recognize the cancer. that's why it's being called a vaccine. >> sandra: what type of cancer are you optimistic this could treat? >> the study in humans is on lymphoma and on mice it was other cancers and it doesn't apply to all cancers at this time but think about colon cancer. you go for testing and there's cancer in a polyp and you're
6:56 am
trying to get pat the invisibility factor. >> sandra: is the medical world optimistic based on what you've discovered so far? >> people are optimistic because it's a completely different way of trying to fight cancer. but at the same time i don't want to be overly optimistic. >> sandra: dr. devi, it's great to see you. i know you just had a baby. congratulations. >> thank you. >> bill: you look great, too. >> thank you. a major manhunt underway after an legal immigrant escapes during deportation and the former v.a. secretary takes a shot at the swamp on the way out the door on the way in a new hour of "america's newsroom."

7:00 am
>> sandra: fox news alert one of the most secretive court coming under more scrutiny as the nation's watchdog launches an investigation. welcome to a brand new hour of "america's newsroom." i'm sandra smith. good morning, bill. >> bill: good morning on this holy thursday. towards the end of the season. i'm bill hemmer. good morning. the i.g.'s mandate gaining momentum after the requests from congress and jeff sessions to examine possible wrongdoing leading up to the election. the house intel committee chair is devin nunes and said this will put the russia investigation into a whole new light. >> the left has continued to say this is watergate and trump's going to be impeached and as they boomeranged on them and the democrats appear like they weaponized to some degree the
7:01 am
intelligence services by using the surveillance apparatus in this country to go and target the opposition campaign is unacceptable that's what happened here and people are learning the truth. >> bill: we have or fox news contributor here. >> the oig had information known at the time the applications were filed from or about an alleged confidential source. that's a reference to christopher steele who dug up salacious dirt on donald trump and by fusion gps and paid for by the hillary clinton campaign.
7:02 am
horowitz said he'll review the doj and communications with the alleged source as they relate it to the surveillance court applications. he was an informant when he leaked to several news organizations that against standard fbi protocol which caused the fbi to receiver -- sever the relationship with steele. there and was research on the trump campaign. two documents obtained we also learned christopher steele was desperate donald trump not get elect and passionate about him not being president. all this compromising information was not included in the fisa applications for surveillance of trump support, carter page. that's where we are.
7:03 am
>> if they find wrongdoing, what's the punishment, doug? >> reporter: in terms of the i.g., he can recommend demotions and reassignments, things of that sort but importantly the i.g. does not have the power to indict or convene a grand jury or interview former doj employees but the information he compiles can be used in an indictmentme indictmentment indictment if a prosecutor is named. >> sandra: more on this with fox news contributor charlie hurt. good morning to you. >> good morning, sandra. >> sandra: nunes said it will put the russia investigation into a whole new light. do you believe it will? >> i think there's a real good chance of that. when you step back and think about the accusations like collusion, we don't even know what that means, actually, but
7:04 am
the russia election meddling and we should all be horrified by that and shut fight to prevent and do something about that but this is a new accation. -- accusation. a credible accusation that people in the doj abused the former intelligence surveillance court system in order to spy on, in order to collect information on and punish political opponents in the middle of the election is far and away the most serious accusation in this russia business. i think it's significant and when you look at the text and the evidence that we have so far obviously we don't know. the investigation hasn't been conducted yet, but it's hard to see how it doesn't line up to make the case that in fact the fisa court system was abused. >> sandra: what did you think about what we just heard from
7:05 am
judge napolitano and while devin nunes is in good step but there's a question whether tell be enough and the limb takes -- limitations on the special counsel. >> that's why many republicans are calling for a second special counsel. they would have all those powers. i would actually argue that while this the oig is absolutely limited he can work to set no motion far more fulsome effort to get to the bottom of this. >> sandra: more shake-up inside the white house, david shulkin is out and ronny jackson is in.
7:06 am
on the way out the door shulkin penned this blistering op-ed in the new york times saying the environment in washington has turned so toxic it became impossible for me to accomplish the important work our veterans need and deserve. as i prepare to leave government i'm struck by a recurring thought, it should not be this hard to serve your country. really shedding light on the swamp that is washington, d.c. >> but, the other way of looking at all this is talking about how hard it is to serve your country. think about the veterans who have been promised good care by a department and federal government and that's not what they get. it's a disaster at the v.a. i can't think of anything more toxic and disrespectful than promising veterans good care when you come home and then not get the good care.
7:07 am
shulkin i'm sure tried his best to fix the problems at vme.a. b he likes others failed. probably a good idea to give somebody else a shot at fixing it because that's the most disrespectful chaotic thing that goes on. >> sandra: charlie, what are people saying overall in washington, d.c. about the continued shake-up that we are seeing inside the west wing? >> reporter: around here they don't like it. it's very disturbing to people around here. they like things to not be chaotic but i have to say, the way the president does this, he's always willing to change the way we do things in order to get a better result and questye that's probably chaotic but i think a smart way of approaching something this broken as washington. >> sandra: approaching 2018 things have changed and we'll be watching them. >> reporter: it's exciting.
7:08 am
>> bill: it's a swamp, charlie. >> reporter: you know it. >> bill: breaking news. the manhunt intensifying for a quote, violent illegal immigrant who he is escaped from ice agent in the middle of deportation and went through security at j.f.k.'s airport. laura ingle has been watching. >> reporter: it's been 36 hours he slipped away while being transferred from a flight and made his move when his handcuffs were unlocked through security. here's his photo, mbake scaped from inside terminal 4 for a good 30 minutes until he made it outside and hopped into a cab. he was spotted on video surveillance getting in the taxi. we've been in touch with ice and the new york city taxi
7:09 am
commission to see if they've been able to identify the license plate number. neither have commented. and the port authority were not notified for nearly an hour after mbake got away from ice agents and that's bringing up questions why other law enforcement agents were informed as he made his way through the terminal. ice officials have not commented. >> bill: he's described as violent. what do we know? >> reporter: he lived in the bronx and wanted on marijuana possession and in 2012 and 2013 and was arrested for carrying a weapon and served in jail before ice began deportation.
7:10 am
he's black about 6'3" and 190 pounds. he as a scar on his upper left neck and was last seen wearing a purple or black shirt, jeans and sneakers. if you have information you are urged to call police. >> bill: laura ingle live in new york. >> sandra: california ramping up the immigration feud with the trump administration. how the state is reacting to one county siding with the white house on sanctuary cities and what the president is now saying this morning. >> bill: have you heard this, the head of apple calling out facebook as the trouble continues for the social media giant. is your privacy for sale online? >> sandra: and the trump administration taking its message directly to the american people ahead of the midterms. we'll tell you where the president is heading today to make his case. >> you might have heard the person who wants to be the speaker of the house again, nancy pelosi, when she heard about families getting $1,000 at
7:11 am
the end of last year after the president signed the tax cuts, she actually said $1,000 bonus for working families was nothing more than crumbs.

>> bill: breaking news. two arrested overseas in the french alps as a car tried to run over two people. france has been on edge since a
7:15 am
terrorist took hostages in a super market. four people killed before police shot and killed the suspect. 15 minutes past the hour. >> the truth is these bonuses and the pay raises already happening across minnesota are making a real difference in the lives of family. in the twin cities and across the state and a want to say seriously, any leader who says $1,000 in the pockets of working families is crumbs is out of touch with the american people. >> sandra: vice president mike pence speaking in minnesota as the wohite house touted its economic record and president trump is heading to ohio where he's expect to talk about infrastructure and jobs. for more let's bring in kayleigh mcenany. this is interesting. you had pence slamming pelosi and the crumbs comments yesterday speaking in minnesota.
7:16 am
the president now today will take his message to ohio. really laying the groundwork for the midterm elections and they're talking jobs and infrastructure. you go back to the roseanne show the other night, she said, i support him because he talked about jobs and they're out there with that message now. >> absolutely. it's a winning message. you look at tax cuts. we've taken that message to the american people and we're winning on that message. rnc internal polling shows every one of our target states, there's a positive view of the trump tax cuts. overall, it's plus 12% in our battleground states. this say win -- is a winning combination and they care the administration is winning for them and their families. >> sandra: he's going to the state of ohio and bill and i were just chatting, he's from the state. i said what's the unemployment rate in ohio and sure enough it's at a 17-year low like the
7:17 am
rest of the country but at 4.5% which is a considerable amount above the national average. there's still a lot of work to do in that state. the president saying it's important to me. i wonder, we were also talking about if he's going to bring up amazon and tweeting about it. sthas -- this is a president that has shown he's interested in levelling the playing field. >> future american consumer and amazon is on his radar as we've seen with his tweets. you mentioned ohio. president trump won the state by 8%. the democrat there is vulnerable approaching the elections and president trump is our secret weapon. he's someone in the pennsylvania special election rick saccone was trailing by double digits and he lost by less and he is
7:18 am
our secret weapon. >> sandra: even he has questioned whether his popularity will transfer into the mid terms. there's still quite a bit of time to go and a lot of it is going to hinge on what the economy looks like come the fall. here's the tweet you're talking about. he tweeted i have stated my concerns with amazon long before the election. unlike others they pay little or no tax to state and local systems and use our u.s. postal system as their delivery boy and putting thousands of retailers out of business. he's looking out for small business. that wasn't happening in the years leading up to him entering office. >> absolutely. small businesses are empowered. amazon doesn't have that sales tax. mom-and-pop businesses closing across the nation and president trump looking out for them and looking out for them on the
7:19 am
world stage with steel and aluminum tariffs and the china tariffs. he is fighting for the forgotten men and women. that was his message in 2016 and winning message and still fighting for them and hasn't forgotten them. >> >> sandra: the fox news polling and how you feel about the economy. fewer people are nervous. nervous 47%. that's a huge drop from 61% of americans responding that felt nervous back in 2016, kayleigh. 40% of respondents feel confident. when you look forward to the midterms there's quite a bit of time left. the president still has work to do. >> no doubt about it. the number is so significant because when the pundits were touting the election numbers and president trump doesn't have a shop and a narrative of negativity, there was one number
7:20 am
so many of us looked at and the president did too ands with the country heading in the right direction and there's enthusiasm in the country because we have a pro-job, pro-business president in the white house looking out for the people. it's an exciting time to be a republican. and to be an american. >> sandra: kayleigh, good to see you. >> bill: it's been one week since the massive cyber attack crippled the city of atlanta. 8,000 government employees hearing they had been hacked. where could this happen next? why security experts in atlanta are still concerned this morning. >> sandra: look at this, a massive tornado caught on camera where this happened and how everyone in that area is doing today. hi i'm joan lunden.

demanded ransom in bitcoin. we have john iannarelli. how did atlanta respond? >> so far the response has been a bit slow. it's gone on for a week business has not been normal in atlanta. they haven't seen these kinds of problems since sherman. you have to be prepared for ransom wear ransomware. >> bill: is it that come? >> last year the fbi reported $1 billion was paid in ransomware so systems can get back online. >> bill: a billion? >> a billion with a "b."
7:26 am
>> bill: did atlanta pay money? >> we don't flow if atlanta paid and honestly, $51,000 in short dol dollars in getting back to get the city back to operating. think of the losses every minute while they're out of business. >> bill: i was reading about this. they were encouraging employees to log on while this is happening to your banking records to make sure you weren't hacked i thought, you don't want to log on because if it's underway, you could open yourself up to being hacked. is that the right advice? is that what others are being warned to do? >> if i was an employee with atlanta or did business online with atlanta i'd check my records but not online from the city until they give the all-clear. anybody paying taxes online, you need to make sure your personal

information hasn't been compromised. >> bill: are we getting better? >> the criminals are always one step ahead. we can't develop a solution until we see the latest problem. you have to stay vigilant and have to train your employees to be aware, not click on links so you're not downloading anything like ransom weware. >> bill: who are the parties in this? >> a lot of state governments out there and national countries are trying to hack into our infrastructure to upset our economy and it's also the guy in the cyber cafe across the world looking to make quick dollars which is a common event in the united states. >> bill: we'll see what comes of atlanta and how others learn along the way. >> sandra: the showdown over

>> bill: california setting rules in how to deal with federal immigration officials. the undersheriff from orange county is don barnes. you captured a lot of attention because you're helping lead the fight against the state, sacramento. the new guidelines pretty much state what happened -- stated the old guidelines. if you make a traffic stop you cannot ask if they're a citizen. >> that's accurate but we dont do that before. in fact, if that was the
7:33 am
limitation on the bill and law being presented we could have said we don't do local immigration enforcement at the street level. that's never happened before. >> bill: but sacramento felt compel to issue new guidelines, why? >> the guidelines are just reiterated what the law says. my hope is the attorney general reads the guidelines because that actually summarizes what the law is and what we did with releasing information on release dates is perfectly within the law and legislation, we're just following it. >> bill: simple question here, what do you think the laws are doing to public safety in your town or your county? >> well, in the state it's eroding public safety. when you legislatively prohibit law enforcement from holding criminals accountable and when have you alternatives to release them back in the custody and the law requires you to release them back into the community doesn't make the community safe. it makes it less safe.
7:34 am
these individual not just low level offenders, they're drug traffickers and assailants and commit burglaries and thefts. >> bill: leaders don't want to let violent people walk the streets. what's at the heart of the laws do you think? >> well, there's been a decriminalization efforts. several bad policy decisions out of sacramento. for example, drug possession is now a misdemeanor. most theft misdemeanors and it's hard to hold them accountable when you can't put them in jail and hold them accountable for prosecution so there's a de-criminalization effort making california as a whole less safe. >> bill: we're not going to let the trump administration do our job we're in the job of public safety not deportation. we're giving law enforcement of what the values act which works
7:35 am
in convert not conflicts with federal law what that entails. public safety not deportation. clearly you disagree. the president responded on twitter. we are stand in solidarity with those in orange county. california sanctuary laws release known dangerous criminals into the state. all citizens have the right to be committed by federal law and strong borders. i imagine you think it will be settled in the supreme court. do you think that? >> our hope is this will happen. when it was first presented sheriffs up and down the state railed against the legislation. we got bad language but it still prevents us from keeping the community safe. we welcome the lawsuit brought on by jeff sessions and think it will go to the supreme court and put us in a position to hold criminals accountable for their
7:36 am
crimes. this is not community-based. we're not performing ice functions. we never have. we have to protect all residents regardless of immigration status. >> bill: why do you think you win in the supreme court? can you frame it? >> i don't know if it will be overturned at the appellate court at the local level. i think it will end up at the supreme court based on history of the courts of california. >> bill: thank you, the under sheriff don barnes. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> sandra: stephon clark will be laid to rest today. he was unarmed when he was shot and kill sparking protests with the community demanding answers. william la jeunesse is live in washington. unrest is expect to continue today. >> reporter: yeah, funeral services for 23-year-old stephon clark begin today at 11:00 a.m. al sharpton will deliver the
7:37 am
eulogy. the protests migrated downtown where marchers blocked traffic shouting "shut it down." cars had their cars surrounded leading to tense confrontation following a tuesday night protest that shut down a city hall meeting as clark's brother refufd to stand down. the -- refused. the city has taken a hands down approach. >> we cannot only get through this. we can be the better for it. >> if we don't get better as a community and police department as a result of this all it does is state a tragedy. >> reporter: in the shooting ten days ago police responded to a 9-1-1 call of a robbery in progress. officers thought clark had a gun and it was a cell phone. >> sandra: what's the status of the investigation? >> reporter: well, the protesters are sending a message and putting pressure on the
7:38 am
multiple investigations underway. one, is by the police department to determine if the officers violated their use of force policy. another by the davment d.a. will look at the criminal act. have you a police oversight board. they're doing their own investigation and then of course you have the coroner, they have a toxicology report coming up and the family has hired their own medical examiner for an independent autopsy. for black lives matter the body cam alone is enough to convict. >> we want them to file charges. we cannot get justice if there's officers still working and if he's not charged or convicted. >> bill: now, clark has a criminal record but the family's attorney said it shouldn't matter because the cops didn't know who they were pursue at the time. as you said in the beginning, protests are expected today and potentially over the weekend. back to you. >> sandra: william la jeunesse, thank you.

7:44 am
now congress is talking about trying to pass new laws. i'm concerned every time there's a violation and whenever something happens there's a rush to pass new laws. in this case, facebook is like a library being blamed for someone coming in and stealing books. they stole data available through facebook the same it was to the obama campaign and exists on data mining or sets being used by other campaigns. there's a rush to blame facebook. when it comes to it there's other bad actors that should receive the blame. tim cooke weighed in.
7:45 am
>> we've elected not to make a ton of money. we're not going to traffic in your personal lives. i think it's an invasion of privacy. privacy to us is a human right. it's a civil liberty. >> sandra: a slam on zuckerberg there. >> it's interesting because i don't see a lot of back and forth arguing like that between two major ceos of silicon valley companies. i think facebook needs to have more regulation. i think all of these content-creating silicon valley companies need more regulation. facebook don't curate content but they move content to a lot of their users and they are
7:46 am
responsible for not only deciding what content moves across their platform but responsible for deciding how to protect users' data. they have over a billion users worldwide. people need to understand how their data's being used. >> sandra: the type of money we're talking about -- we're not just throwing hundreds of millions. the agency, the ftc could fine facebook up to $40,000 per violation, per day which is 50 million users involved could add up to millions. they're ruling out the "b" word, billions, but it's no wonder the stock has taken such a drastic hit. it's up 3%. i guess it had to move. >> tim cook had a convenient memory. it wasn't long ago where they were accused of tracking people's geoinformation.
7:47 am
and facebook's business model is different. it's free for us to use. unless they're going to charge us they have to monetize somehow and they monetize us looking at advertisement and data is used to drive those advertisements. i think to mack the charges is disingenuous. >> sandra: he did conveniently put a halo over his own head. facebook is announcing it will no longer allow third-party data and it allowed prominent aggregators like experian to track for purchasing activity for ad targeting. something you see every day if you hop on a facebook platform. >> this say step in the right direction.
7:48 am
when we sign up for social media sites whether it's facebook, snapchat, twitter, in sta gram. we should assume our data is being harvested and advertisers are using that to target to their demographic. but there's got to be more transparency and facebook and many social media sites have gotten away with a lot for a long time. there needs to be more regulation. >> sandra: it sounds like regulation and that's a slippery slope. >> when we go on netflix we like they recommend something to watch and when we go to amazon we like the fact they know we're about to run out of toothpaste. and you can talk to a voter about what they care about is important and takes politics to the individual and find out what's important to them. the overreaction to this and taking away our ability is a disservice to the users. it makes political campaigns or even the ability to receive
7:49 am
advertising more personal to who you are and i hate to see an overreaction to something that, again, this wasn't facebook's fault. this is someone who stole their data and this is a difference in understanding the problem. >> sandra: we'll see whose fault it is as we see this play out. when i mention the stock it's lost almost 1$100 billion in market value before the cambridge analytica stuff it was one of the top five most valuable countries -- companies in the world and is no longer. >> bill: you can argue whoever bought the information if they signed the agreement they were going delete it it would be their responsibility to delete it. however if, you're the party who sells the information isn't your job to make sure the information is fulfilled. >> sandra: the ftc has work to do. >> bill: rare video of isis fighters on the battlefield.
