clearance from doctors to go hom home. ciarra said god so good. we're dancing for you too. i'm dana. here's shep. >> shepard: it's 3:00 on the east coast, noon on the west coast. michael cohen is claiming he was in the room when donald trump jr. told his father about the plan for the infamous trump-russian meeting. who to believe? president trump today holding a meeting at security. vladimir putin just invited trump to moscow. the white house has responded. let's get to it. mercifully, it's friday. the president's former fixer reportingly spilling more
12:01 pm
secrets. the latest accusation, president trump knew his son was going to meet with a kremlin-linked lawyer offering dirt on hillary clinton. cnn broke the story, nbc news and our corporate cousins at the "wall street journal" say they report the same thing. the president's form attorney and fixer michael cohen claims he was in the room when president trump found out about the trump tower meeting. cohen is willing to give that information to the special counsel, robert mueller. that's the report. the meeting happened in june of 2016. donald trump jr., president trump's son-in-law, jared kushner and former trump campaign chairman, paul manafort, all met with a russian lawyer. trump jr.'s own e-mails show that he knew the lawyer was offering damaging intelligence on hillary clinton and responded "i love it." mueller's team is looking to the sit down as part of the investigation into russian election interference and
12:02 pm
whether members of the trump team colluded with moscow. president trump said there was no collusion. he denied knowing about the trump tower meeting ahead of time. today he tweeted i didn't know of the meeting with any son, don jr. sounds like someone is trying to make up stories to get himself out of an unrelated jam. taxi cab money, maybe i should say. he said he retailed crooked hillary's lawyer. gee, i wonder if they helped him make the choice. taxi cabs is a reference to one of cohen's business that the feds are apparently investigating. cohen's attorney released a secret recording of cohen and president trump discussing a possible payment involving a playmate's claim of an affair with the president. the president denies there was an affair and the lawyer said the payment never happened. again. the headline today, the former
12:03 pm
fixing could be selling out his former boss to the feds. rick leventhal has more. >> the message from the white house is michael cohen can't be trusted. he taped people without their knowledge. he's a liar and he's incredible. the "new york post" is that candidate trump was aware of the trump tower meeting before it happened claiming he was in the room when donald trump jr. told his father about it and says the future president approved it. trump jr. has repeatedly denied this on television and congressional hearings and his lawyer backed him up in a state writing trump jr. has been professional throughout the investigations. we're confident of the accuracy and reliability of the information that has been provided by mr. trump jr. and on his behalf. on cnn last night, rudy guliani said cohen is the kind of witness who could destroy mueller's whole case. >> i expected something like this from cohen. he's been lying all week, for
12:04 pm
years. the tapes that we have demonstrate any number of very serious lies by him back 1 1/2 years ago, including his fooling people, hiding tape recordings, telling them they weren't recorded. breaking face with them. taping his client, which is a disbarable offense. i don't see how he has any credibility. if you had a trail and there won't be a trial, you'd say which lie do you want to pick? >> of course, the president trusted cohen for years. now shep, he says he was dooped. >> shepard: rick, we're learning more about the russian operative that met with donald trump jr. >> yes, she's denied working closely with moscow telling congress she operated independently of any government bodies. the associated press said they reviewed scores of e-mails and documents and discovered that she worked as a ghost writer for the government and admitted to nbc that she worked as an
12:05 pm
informant for the kremlin. the a.p. found almost no documents about that trump tower meeting to lead up or aftermath. she told congress the meeting didn't amount to much and she wanted it to go away as soon as possible. >> shepard: rick leventhal live in new york. thank you. the lawyer representing the porn stare that says she has president with president trump says he has three other clients who claim they had affairs with the president as well. so far you'll have to take his word for it. stormy daniels attorney michael avenatti tweeted last night three additional women, all paid hush money through various means. time for michael cohen and donald trump to come 100% clean with the american people. all the documents, all the tapes now. no more lies or lip service. enough. michael avenatti has not given the names of his new clients. he says he has evidence to back up the claims but not at liberty to share it.
12:06 pm
president trump has denied the affair with stormy daniels. the president said he was unaware of the $130,000 in hush money that his former fixer michael cohen said he paid stormy daniels. cohen's current later lanny davis replied to the claims of three more affairs saying mr. avenatti is an aggressive attorney doing his job in the middle of litigation. take that heat. take from that what you will. we could see two more summits between president trump and vladimir putin. the russian president has extended an invitation. mr. president, president trump come to moscow. the white house says the president is open to going if he gets a formal invitation. president trump has -- i should say president putin says he's ready to visit washington under appropriate conditions. the white house said a meeting in the fall and then it should happen when the investigation is done, the russian investigation or as president trump called it
12:07 pm
the witch hunts sometime next year. chris wallace interviewed president putin in helsinl sisi has a lot coming up with president trump's lawyer, rudy guliani this month. off to moscow. what do you say? >> [speaking russian]. i'm up for another trip. i'd love to go back. maybe sit down with president putin. i will tell you, one of the things i've learned is that originally president trump wanted the first meeting with president putin to be in washington. putin pushed back and said look, you guyed have sanctioned my country and me up to my eyeballs. we can't have the first summit in your background. that's why they head it in helsinki. after that, it was anticipated there would be reciprocal summits, one in washington, one next spring and a follow-one in
12:08 pm
moscow. that isn't so unusual. that's the way reagan and gorbachev did it in the 80s. >> shepard: what sort of reaction is this getting around town there? >> look, you know, there's a conflict about this. nobody is upset with the idea that president trump and president putin are meeting. a lot of issues to discussion. a lot of differences to resolve. so in that sense, there's no distress about it at all. obviously there was a lot of distress about the way president trump handled the news conference after his summit with president putin. so that adds to a little concern about what would happen in future summits. >> shepard: there was a lot of concern after that summit. we heard people saying there would be resignations. people will care about the country, stand up to him. i didn't see a thing happen. >> no. look, you can argue a lot of aspects of this. on the other hand, i have talked
12:09 pm
to one official that was very deeply involved in the summit and was getting a lot of calls to resign. he said look, i'm doing good work for the country. i think i'm helping to protect the country. why would i resign? how would that help? either in terms of the conduct of foreign policy or our relations with russia. i will tell you, there is a sense among some american officials that the meeting between president trump and president putin went off very much as planned and was a productive meeting, the one-on-one meeting and the bilateral meeting. it was the news conference that this particular official said went off the tracks when president trump in effect equated the claims of the u.s. intelligence community that putin had meddled in the 2016 election. he said up till that point and obviously that was a public relations disaster. he said the actual substance of
12:10 pm
the summit was very productive. >> shepard: guliani this weekend. what is the plan there? >> well -- >> shepard: it's been a roller coaster. >> shepard: we'll have a exclusive interview that we just locked down with steven mnuchin, the treasury secretary. a lot to talk to him about. first of all, these very strong gdp numbers. 4.1%. the big question there, is it sustainable? is it a one-off, a blip or a sign of better things to come? obviously the trade war and the deal, how big a deal with it with the european union. as far as guliani is concerned, you put your finger on it at the top of the show. you have this extraordinary face off with donald trump and the man that used to be his personal lawyer, his personal fixer that appears as the federal government squeezed him over a separate investigation to have decided to flip to try to save his own skin by providing
12:11 pm
whatever information he can about donald trump. one assumes that as his personal lawyer and fixer potentially he could have damaging information. on the other hand, this disclosure that he says that president trump knew about the russia trump tower meeting in 2016 when it took place, one, we're told that he doesn't have any proof of it. it's his word against the president. you can say that is worth what it's worth. in addition, i'm not sure if the president did know about it that it's damaging to him politically. could be damaging to donald jr. he testified under oath before the senate judiciary committee. i'm not sure it's damaging to donald trump. did he potentially lie to "the new york times"? yeah. but the last time i checked, that's not something to be praised or admired. it's not illegal. >> shepard: no, not a crime to lie to the times. hope you have a great weekend.
12:12 pm
we'll be watching. >> thank you, shep. >> shepard: up next, the trump organizationist finance sheets. heard about this one? a man the feds called to testify before the grand jury. details on his decades with the trumps and what he could have to share with the special counsel. that's coming up from the fox news deck on this friday afternoon. great to have you in. come here, babe. ok. nasty nighttime heartburn? try new alka-seltzer pm gummies. the only fast, powerful heartburn relief plus melatonin so you can fall asleep quickly. ♪ oh, what a relief it is! wlet's do it. ?

12:15 pm
top money man after the feds called him to testify before a grand jury. his name, alan wieselberg. our corporate cousins broke the story. they quote a source that describes him, i'm quoting here "the most senior person in the organization that is not a trump." his connection to the trumps the date back decades. he worked for the real estate firm trump's father owned. he over saw many of the personal dealings, household expenses, boats, planes, mostly everything. now he's linked to the hush money payment for a porn star and talk about a possible payment to a play made. what is clear is how close he is to the trump family. there's no disputing that. president trump wrote way back in 2004, alan has been with me
12:16 pm
for 30 years. he knows how to get things done. now it's more than 40 years. let's turn to nicholas johnson from axios. he's live from d.c. good to see you. >> how are you? >> shepard: what is the thinking on mr. weisselberg and what he might contribute? >> i thought the way chris wallace led us is great with michael cohen. he was subpoenaed and became entrapped in this investigation, that was a big deal because he knew so much, this is the next level of that. the president -- this is the president's personal financier. this is a momentous change to the investigation as far as what kind of access -- what kind of information the federal investigators will have access to. the one thing we have never seen
12:17 pm
from president trump, his tax returns. this is a guy that may filled them out. he knows a lot about what is unknown. >> shepard: and there's no attorney-accountant privilege. whatever he knows i presume they'll get from him. >> i mean, if he wants to tell them. he's been subpoenaed. he's compelled to testify. there's no fifth amendment protections if you're talking about other people's wrong doings. only protects yourself. so if the federal prosecutors are following the money, this is the guy they'll have to talk to to keep track of it. >> shepard: 12 or 13 people alleging some sort of something with the man that would be president. now we have a porn start a playmate and three more who we're told are claiming that they got some sort of hush money. >> yeah. this is the way that investigators go. you star on the outside and peel back the layers. you get the people very far away from the far get and you flip them. they may have been accused of purge any and they'll start
12:18 pm
telling you things. this happened with cohen. remember, he used to say he would take a bullet for the president. now he says he's only looking out for himself, his family and his country. as these rings get closer, they're at the person that is the most senior in the trump organization that doesn't have the last name trump. >> shepard: has the concern level based on your organization changed at pennsylvania avenue? >> we haven't gotten any in the last 24 hours. they were starting to get worried about cohen. we're on the lookout to see if brings up a red alert level in the white house. >> shepard: good to talk to you. thank you. >> a pleasure. >> shepard: nicholas johnson from axios. ahead as president trump and vladimir putin talk about getting to in moscow, democrats and republicans in the house are joining together to push back against russia. i've just gotten notice from our friends at the "new york post," which is owned by the parent company of this network, which is our corporate cousin, there has been an enormous development
12:19 pm

i want all of it. great to have epix? open this. you'd laugh. you'd cry. don't you think i had dreams and hopes.
12:22 pm
what about my life? what about me? maybe even laugh while crying. so you know, even if you're a psychopath, it touches your heart. sounds pretty great, right?" we're on to something. come on. and the best part is it's easy to upgrade. just say, "add epix." epix has a whole lot more. whoa! >> shepard: as the president takes steps to improve the united states relationship with russia, house lawmakers are sending a strong message to moscow. jennifer griffin has that from the pentagon. hello, jen. >> what is interesting about the bill, which the senate votes on next week, republicans and democrats agree the provisions targeting russia and china are large enough to send a strong message the u.s. military means business. >> there's literally dozens of provisions that deal with russia. whether it's increasing the
12:23 pm
credibility of our nuclear deterrent, which russian has openly threatened to use in a conventional war. we also strengthen the global engagement center at the state department, which is in charge of pushing back against the propaganda that is coming from russia. >> some of the provisions may tie the hands of the president in the wake of the helsinki summit. the top democrat adam schiff praised the bill for pushing back against president putin's alliance. the bill prohibits military to military cooperation with russia to include syria, prohibits u.s. government recognition of the absorption of crimea and increases the number of u.s. troops in europe to deter russian aggression, shepard. >> shepard: there's a china component to, right? >> that's right. there's long in the bill
12:24 pm
prohibiting the government from doing bit with china's state telecom, dte. perhaps most important, however, the increased focus on crucial readiness issues, a $716 billion authorizes upgrades to the nuclear triad, buys a new aircraft carrier, $65 million for low yield submarine launch ballistic missiles and 77 new fifth generation stealth 35 aircraft, all needed to counter russia and china and serve as a deterrent. >> shepard: thanks, jennifer. president trump says the united states's economy is the envy of the world. after the government released impressive numbers. some economists say it's not that simple and the kind of success that we're having now will likely not last. we'll explain that.
12:25 pm
the latest media mogul reportedly accused of misconduct with women. that's coming up. people would stare. psoriasis does that. it was tough getting out there on stage. i wanted to be clear. i wanted it to last. so i kept on fighting. i found something that worked. and keeps on working. now? they see me. see me. see if cosentyx could make a difference for you- cosentyx is proven to help people with moderate to severe plaque psoriasis... ...find clear skin that can last. don't use if you're allergic to cosentyx. before starting cosentyx, you should be checked for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. never give up. see me. see me. clear skin can last.

balls pounding toronto. the hail storm brought highway traffic to a standstill. the news with shepard smith continues after this.
12:29 pm
needles. essential for the cactus, but maybe not for people with rheumatoid arthritis. because there are options. like an "unjection™". xeljanz xr. a once-daily pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well enough. xeljanz xr can reduce pain, swelling and further joint damage, even without methotrexate. xeljanz xr can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma and other cancers have happened. don't start xeljanz xr if you have an infection. tears in the stomach or intestines, low blood cell counts and higher liver tests and cholesterol levels have happened. your doctor should perform blood tests before you start and while taking xeljanz xr, and monitor certain liver tests. tell you doctor if you were in a region where fungal infections are common and if you have had tb, hepatitis b or c, or are prone to infections. needles. fine for some things.
12:30 pm
but for you, one pill a day may provide symptom relief. ask your doctor about xeljanz xr. an "unjection™". >> shepard: the u.s. economy is growing faster than in four years. the new numbers might not tell the whole story. according to the commerce department, the economy grew by 4.1%. that's the blue bar here, all the way over to the right. except it isn't. that's not it. anyway, president trump this morning called the growth amazing. >> if economic growth continues at this pace, the united states economy will double in ten years than it would have under president bush or president obama. i think the most important thing and larry kudlow just confirmed to me along with kevin hassert
12:31 pm
is that these numbers are sustainable. >> shepard: the president quoting two top economic advisers there. the report is very good news. some economists are questioning how sustainable the numbers will be. susan lee with more. >> yeah, good news. the economy is booming. that's 4.1%. yes, this morning we did hear from the u.s. president, president trump, who says the next quarter is also looking good and we're on track for the strongest full year economy in 13 years. consumer is a big part of it. up 4%. private investment fell a little bit. the housing market is cooling. we also had companies stockpiling and exporting to front run the new tariffs that will go into effect with soy beans and orders throughout 50% because china imported more trying to get ahead of the tariffs.
12:32 pm
most economists say they don't expect the u.s. grow 4% but still strong, 3% expansion, which is the best since 2005. shep? >> shepard: there's a report concerning cbs and it's dragging down the market today. what are you learn something. >> we have cbs shares tumbling. this is after reports surfaced that cbs' ceo less moonves is accused of sexual misconduct. the hollywood reporter says that he is accused of inappropriate kissing and touching. cbs has come out with a statement saying they're investigating the allegations and all allegations of misconduct are to be taken seriously. and we have cbs right now, their shares down sharply. back to you. >> shepard: thank you, susan lee, from the biz. let's bring in ken brown from heard on the street at the "wall street journal."
12:33 pm
the journal and the parent company and this network's parent company share common ownership. sugar high or better than that? >> the economy is doing well. things are good. you'd expect it. we had a big tax cut a stimulus. the economy was good already and now it's doing better. it will be a good year. it will be uneven partially because of the tariffs and people were pushing to get exports out of the country. there was demand, inventories are down a lot, which is a good sign. that means people are buying stuff. we don't know where the inventories went. and consumer spending was very good. consumers are 2/3s of the u.s. economy. >> shepard: the tax cut is deficit financed and for regular people, not businesses, it will go away. if that is the case, how big of a concern is that? >> so it is a concern. the issue is if the economy is growing, the whole bet when you
12:34 pm
build a big deficit like that, the economy will grow out of it. it's going to generate more tax revenue and the deficit has gone down. so it's happened. it's impossible to say right now. you're right. it's a big deficit. >> shepard: trump communications -- sorry, twitter is having a miserable day. off 20%. 9.28%. >> not a good day. >> shepard: what happened? earnings? >> yeah. it was up 70% for the year. >> shepard: user numbers. yeah. users are down. you know, people had expected them to be up, this is the same story as facebook, which got crushed yesterday. they're facing all of this pressure about what -- their rules and fake news today, roles in consumer privacy and all of those things. investors were ignoring that. sending the shares up and up. this was a sobering time when both companies were hit by that.
12:35 pm
>> shepard: facebook is down another 1% today. so compared to yesterday, pretty level. is this about -- is there a consensus on whether this is a blip or this is about their business model that needs to be revamped or what are you saying in the main? >> so in facebook, they're trying to get ahead of all of this regulatory stuff. they're trying to put in controls. that will cost money. mark zuckerberg has been clear for a while, this will cost money, we're going to spend money. so investors have ignored that. the question is, if users of facebook are pulling back, you know, that's a problem. facebook doesn't make money from users. they make money from the advertisers chasing the users. advertising is good. if user goes down and advertising follows, facebook has been an unbelievably profitable company. if advertising follows, that's a big risk to the company. >> shepard: what are you supposed to do? a lot of people have money now,
12:36 pm
i guess. they're not saving as much before. what do you do with it? come on, help. >> it's tough right now. the stock market is highly valued. doesn't mean you should invest in it. the history is when markets are highly values, the returns are low. the bond market is getting hit because the fed is raising rates. it's safer. you won't lose 20 or 30%. you probably won't make much money in the bond market. cash is getting more interesting. not that interesting, but you don't get zero on cash anymore. you can get more on your cash. during rough times, that can be a way to go. >> shepard: one of the stories in your paper was about foreigns investing in united states homes and the home sector. taking a dive like has never been seen. >> yeah, we've never seen the run up, either. >> shepard: true. >> there's a bunch of reasons for the dollar is stronger so things are more expensive.
12:37 pm
there's trade fears, a lot of nasty rhetoric about china. china has more restrictions about getting money out. chinese want safe money so they bought u.s. real estate as a safe haven. it's harder to get the money out. >> shepard: we're waiting for this article to drop, which we're led to believe includes reports on less moonves. sounds like cbs session they will independent -- investigate. moonves will keep running the company and his team. the amazing thing, the company is in this crazy fight with its controlling shareholder, national amusements, which is the redstones and they control viacom, too. they want to merge the two companies. moonves doesn't want to. they're suing each other. all kinds of drama. this is new drama. >> shepard: not a good day at
12:38 pm
black ron. thanks, ken. >> thank you. >> shepard: hundreds of immigrant children are still separated from their parents right this minute. yesterday was the deadline for families to be together again. a federal judge ordered the administration to reunite about 2,500 children with their parents after they were forced to separate. the president's zero tolerance policy on illegal immigration. the policy caused chaos, confuse and anger across america. the president last month signed an executive order to stop the separations. the feds say more than 1,800 of the 2,500 children are back with their parents or sponsors. that leaves more than 700 kids without their mothers or fathers and still in the custody of the united states government. included in that number, more than 400 children whose parents the government has already deported. the government has declared they have met the court-ordered
12:39 pm
deadline. it's one or the other. casey stegall has more. he's live in the southwest newsroom. how can they have met the deadline if they're all separated? >> shepard, a lot of people are asking that very same question. the judge praised the federal government for their work in attempting to reunite them. but the judge initially ordered all kids to be reunited. as you said, more than 700 were deemed ineligible. so it's a bit of a sliding scale here. we can tell you in about an hour from now, that same judge that's been overseeing this case out in san diego, a federal judge, is going to meet with both sides where they're going to parse all of these financial numbers and no doubt much of the emphasis will be placed on the 711 children deemed ineligible in detention centers. what happens to them? meantime, reunions like these in
12:40 pm
phoenix continue playing out across the country. more than 1,400 have so far taken place, according to the federal government. humanitarian and immigration rights groups are assisting and lawyers with the aclu say that they will continue holding the u.s. government accountable until all families are back together. >> shepard: what is the process? what is next for these families? >> that's largely where the humanitarian and religious groups come in to play. they're helping secure everything from food, shelter to clothing, helping arrange legal advice and transportation, this is the bus terminal in mccallan, texas where large groups of my grants board buses and travel all over to link up with family already in america or with sponsors as they await their court dates. listen. >> they've got ten a packet of
12:41 pm
immigration forms. they half understand them. they're confused about the process. we try to help them what the ice check in, what the immigration court date is, and what the significance is and how important that they go with an attorney, et cetera. >> there's still an ongoing court battle as we reported here yesterday over how long the government must wait until they start deportation proceedings once the reunions have happened. no word yet on when the federal judge will decide on that. >> shepard: casey stegall live in big d. thank you. well, we got a blood moon now. total eclipse of the moon. live picture there. look at that black screen. the blue and white, the red part there. isn't that nice? what the heck is that? can you see the moon in there? can you see it? i see the moon, the moon sees me.
