>> that's the superstar's special inhome performance for grace morris. the good news is, after 20,000 retweets, her efforts worked. thanks for joining us on "the daily briefing." i'm dana perino. here's shep. >> shepard: it's noon on the west coast. 3:00 here in the east. 2:00 p.m. brooklyn, iowa, where the hunt for the missing college students, molly tibbets intensifies. >> we believe that molly is still alive. if someone has abducted here, we're pleading with you to please release her. >> her mother announcing a new reward to try to bring molly home. the pope says stop killing people. the leader of the catholic church who says there's never a good reason to use the death penalty. the plane crash where everybody survived. we'll show you the moment of impact inside the jet. the tsa apparently floating a plan the get rid of security checkpoints at some airports to
save cash. is bringing a full size shampoo worth the risk? who doesn't love bargains. we'll take you to the longest yard sale in all the land. nearly 700 miles. apple. welcome to the full comma club. you're the first member. the first public company to hit $1 trillion in value. let's get to it! first from the news deck this thursday afternoon, american democracy is in the cross hairs. that from the secretary of homeland security today. the nation's top intelligence and national security officials making a surprise appearance at the white house briefing. they talked about how they're guarding the upcoming mid-term elections from foreign interference, especially from russia. >> russia attempted to interfere with the last election and continues to engage in maligned influence operations to this day. this is a threat we need to take
extremely seriously and to tackle and respond to with fierce determination. >> shepard: president trump has faced criticism from lawmakers on both sides over his summit with vladimir putin last month. the president questioned the u.s. intelligence community's assessment that moscow meddled in the election. he later tried to clarify the comments saying he does agree with u.s. intel officials that it was russia but added could be other people also. president trump has stepped up his attacks against special counsel robert mueller and the russia investigation repeatedly calling it's a witch hunt. mueller is looking to moscow's meddling in the presidential election, possible collusion with the trump campaign and whether the president obstructed justice. the president says there was no collusion and no obstruction. the latest on his possible interview in just a moment. first, to john roberts who is live on a very rainy north lawn this afternoon.
hi, john. >> it's a torrential downpour out here, shep. what a briefing it was this afternoon. a real who's who of intelligence and national security. the director of the fbi, the director of national intelligence, dan coats, the department of homeland security secretary, the national security adviser and the director of the national security agency all coming out to re-assure americans that the administration is working together to preserve the integrity of the 2018 mid-term elections. they said there's an ongoing effort to divide and influence voters in this country. the only actor that they name in terms of this maligned activity was russia. the director of national intelligence confirming to me that includes the kremlin. let's go back to helsinki. a couple weeks ago the president met with vladimir putin, received assurances from putin, he had had nothing to do or the russian government with the 2016
election and we had thought at that point that the president had told putin no more interfering in u.s. elections. so i put that question to the director of national intelligence. >> what is your belief about the russian government involvement in meddling in 2016? if as you say russia continues to influence our electoral process, does that mean nothing much came of the meeting with putin? >> the vice president and president has acknowledged that the ica was the correct assessment of what happened in 2016. we have subsequently made the determination to make this a top priority, that it doesn't happen again. we're throwing everything at it. >> what coats said at the top there, the ica assessment is the intelligence committee, the intelligence community, did agree that russia was involved in the -- the russian government was involved in trying to
influence the 2016 elections. coats and director wray believe that russia is heavily involved again in 2018. however, they did say that the efforts to influence and divide the nation and try to change the outcome of the election one way or the other far less robust in 2018 than it was in 2016. shep? >> shepard: john, president trump might yet sit down with robert mueller's team for an interview, that is if they can agree on terms. as john just reported, the president's lawyers asked the feds to drop questions about obstruction of justice. john, you're hearing the questions are still very much on the table. >> they are. we got that whole list of 49 questions in march. the idea of conspiracy was a big part of those four to nine questions. the president's outside counsel, jay sekulow and rudy guliani were trying to get mueller to agree to an interview that he would talk about the russia angle, which is what they believe the special counsel's
mandate was originally and whether or not there was any collusion between the trump campaign and russia to try to influence the election. in his response letter, mueller said, no, i want to talk about the issues that go to obstruction as well. i'm not sure where that leaves things right now. i know that the president's attorneys are formulating a response. they'll likely have that next week. they don't want to let the president sit down with mueller and talk one-on-one about these issues of obstruction. they might be willing to submit some written answers on the question. mueller has said he would accept written answers in person also. what is interesting as well today about the press briefing, president trump has talked about there being no credibility of this russian investigation, calling it a witch hunt, talking about malign actors at the fbi.
chris wray was asked why we should believe what he's saying about protecting the integrity of the election when the president says there's no credibility. listen to that. >> the president has tweeted that that investigation by the special counsel is a hoax and should be shut down. you said you don't believe it's a hoax. why would the american people believe what you're saying about the fbi when the president says that the investigation by special counsel and when the press secretary said there was a lot of corruption in the fbi. do you have any response? >> i can assure the american people that the men and women of the fbi starting from the director all the way down will follow our oath and do our jobs. >> not surprising that wray would stand up for the fbi. the question is, will the president do an interview. i was told almost certainly no but he has the final say. i was told by rudy guliani last
night the president wants him to keep negotiating to see if one might be possible. the president believes that if he sits down with mueller and answers his question, it could clear his name. shep? >> shepard: thanks, john. and prosecutors say they plan on calling the star well against paul manafort, rick gates. he worked on the trump campaign and was manafort's long-time business partner. back in february, gates cut a deal with the feds and pleaded guilty to conspiracy and lying to investigators. manafort has pleaded not guilty to more than a dozen charges including bank fraud and conspiracy. his lawyers are trying to pin the blame on gates. yesterday prosecutors suggested they might not have gates testify against his former boss. but today the judge told them they could not prove conspiracy without putting gates on the stand. so the prosecutors told the
judge they have every intention of doing so. this is the first courtroom test for special counsel and peter doocy is live at the courthouse in alexandria, virginia. peter? >> shep, even though rick gates is not on trial, his name comes up quite a bit because the mueller team has been interviewing a handful of benders that received international wire transfers from manafort allegedly from these accounts hidden from the irs and filled with money from ukrainian political clients. some of those vendors say they have never heard the name rick gates. others said they were familiar with gates and that's important because the manafort defense hinges on convincing jurors that paul manafort was the boss. he didn't handle bills. that was gates. gates is expected to testify, even though the mueller team said they might not call him. so we should see him here no alexandria by the end of next week, shep.
>> shepard: the big focus on manafort's spending, peter. >> right. he allegedly had millions of dollars in multiple accounts located in cypress that even his bookkeeper in southern california didn't know about. we heard about this today. witness number 12, heather washkun from the ssb firm, she said she didn't know manafort had any international accounts because he never told her. so when he is ordering a blazer from the beverly hills stores, he was generally using an account she didn't know about. same story when he wanted a $15,000 ostrich skin jacket. he used another jacket that he kept hidden from the feds and his own bookkeeper. shep? >> shepard: peter doocy live. another member of our thunder and lightning team. thank you. pope francis calling for the end of the death penalty in the whole world. he says it's an attack on human
dignity. the pope changing the official catholic church teaching on capital punishment. the old policy allowed the death penalty in very rare cases when it was the only way of defending human lies against the unjust aggressor. the vatican sent a letter that says -- >> shepard: our chief religion correspondent lauren green is live now. lauren? >> shep, this is very important because the pope is not issuing an opinion, this is a huge change that goes to the heart of catholicism. catholic teaching. for a long time, the death penalty was considered permissible in rare cases and a protection of the common good. pope francis has declared inadmissible in all cases. the pope approved the change in early may and the vatican
announced it today in rome. it's been talked about for some time, even three years ago when the pontiff spoke before congress on his pilgrimage to the united states. >> every life is sacred. every human person. >> the pope says in the light of the gospel, the death penalty is inadmissible because it's an attack on the dignity of the person. >> first of all, it's a message to all catholics. let's go back to what it's like to respect all life and all cases. i send a message globally. >> with this change, the catholic church moves in the direction of the general public. shep? >> shepard: lauren, catholics
reacting. is it a mixed bag? >> it's a mixed bag but interesting the reaction from conservative catholics, which is negative. saying the pope doesn't have the power to rewrite things he doesn't like in the catechism. adding if the only standard of change is the subjective against human dignity, there's implications on other things like marriage, divorce and human sexuality. so expect we'll see more reaction. >> shepard: lauren green, live in new york. investigators questioning somebody in the disappearance of molly tibbets. one of the new developments in this case as family members beg for their daughter's return and offer a new reward. keeping an eye on apple. the company hitting a major milestone worth more than $1 trillion. will it stay that way before the final bell rings? we'll track that with the dow coming up from the fox news deck on this thursday afternoon. allergies with sinus congestion and pressure?

is the easiest thing in the world. i'm thinking she's somewhere. i think someone made a horrible mistake and don't know what to do. we need that person to give molly up, give themselves up and face the consequences for what is a smaller issue and not compound it any worse. >> shepard: as far as we know, somebody last saw molly on july 18 while she was going for a run. investigators say they have gotten dozens of leads and say they talked to a handful of people, including a hog farmer that reportedly pleaded guilty to stalking in the past. so far no sign of the missing molly tibbets. matt finn is live in brooklyn, iowa. matt? >> two notable leads that unfortunately have led to dead ends, including pig farmer that tells the fbi that they asked to search his property without a warrant.
he also agreed the hand over his cell phone. there was an apparent citing at a kansas city truck stop. police say they searched the area and interviewed witnesses and led to nothing. here we are since two weeks since she disappeared. the family has praised the community and the police. molly tibbets' father says the search is strong and sophisticated. we're seeing the family start to ram up up their own personal efforts to find and recover molly because they tell us they believe she's alive and being held captive somewhere raising more than $170,000 so far. the reward hovering around $2,000 for several days. the family says they're welling to pay someone for her return. today molly's mother describes how she's making it through this. >> sometimes i feel her sitting on my shoulder. molly was an incredibly strong young woman. i don't know how i have the
strength in me, but molly is lending me her strength every day, every night. yes, i have my moments of complete meltdowns. >> the family says they're pushing for the scope of this investigation to expand beyond where we are in rural iowa. they acknowledge that molly could be anywhere, shep. >> shepard: and matt, we heard from her boyfriend today as well? >> yes, the boyfriend says he's back in the house where they were staying when molly was missing. he wouldn't comment on whether there any signs of a struggle or forced entry at the home. shep? >> shepard: matt finn in brooklyn, iowa. the pentagon explaining how teams are working to identify the remains north korea handed over. ahead, a look at the process aimed at giving closure to american families that have waited for their heros to come home for decades now. also, a passenger was recording video when the jet crash

every year as part of the federal budget process. tsa has asked to discuss potential operational efficiencies. this year is no different. let's turn to stewart baker. he over saw fsa's policy in the bush administration. good to see you. >> a pleasure. >> shepard: explain this to us and what you think about it. >> so this is a budget exercise. somebody asked them to say what they would do to save $100 million. one of the options was, well, maybe we can stop doing checks at small airports where the planes are small. that's a bad idea. as soon as they calculate the risks, they're going to say if we have to save $100 million, this is not what we're going to do to save it. i think the public reaction is pretty similar to what the reaction inside tsa is going to be. but you know, at some level, you
can say if it were a ten-seater aircraft, it isn't going to harm any buildings it flies into. so you can imagine saying we're going to have a lot less security for small airplanes, but that's not the proposal and i don't think any of those proposals will go anywhere. >> shepard: there was a time ago when a lot of people would tell us inside the tsa, we make you feel better more than we make you safer. has tsa improved? >> they have to some degree. look, this is -- there's massive numbers and practically everybody going through the airport wants to do nothing more than just get on their plane and get to where they're going. there's no threat. so they're looking for a needle in a hay stack. but they're looking more efficiently. they're using technologies that are designed to reduce the hassle for americans and still find some of the more modern
threats. but yeah, there's a substantial element here that they -- they're almost certain there's no needle in this week's haystack. and so much of what is going on is a re-assurance that if there were a needle, they'd find it. >> shepard: a deterrence? >> for sure. if you're thinking of causing a problem on an airplane, you have to bring the weapon and surrender it so people had it and know who had charge of it. it's a deterrent to trying that thing. if you try it once, they're on to you and you're going to jail. >> shepard: thanks, stewart. i appreciate it. wind is causing a deadly fire that has burned more than 1,000 homes in california to spread even more as fox reports this hour. that's the word from fire officials in the city of
redding, which is about 150 miles north of sacramento. they have made great progress, which is great news, but the fire is still a 1/3 contained. it's the sixth most destructive fire in california history. six people have died, including a firefighter and a bulldozer operator that was helping fight the flames. it's but one of many fires burning in california right now. our jeff paul is on the front lines. jeff? >> yeah, shep. the carr fire still has a strong hold on northern california. you can see there's still a lot of smoke that is coming into this area. most of the flames have moved away from the majority of the houses. you can see off to the side of me, what the flames did to this neighborhood. devastation everywhere you look. 10-12 homes. the homes are gone. evacuees say they're lucky to
escape the flames. >> a matter of minutes. it was within ten minutes. just came barrelling through. it was difficult. it was hard. >> now, coming back out here live, you can see there's alone flag waving in the wind amongst all the destruction. it seems that someone out here wanted to make sure, even though this home was burned to the ground, that american flag was still standing, shep. >> shepard: what else are you hearing from the people in the community there? >> this community is so strong, shep. anywhere we've been driving, you see signs all over town thanking firefighters and police officers. we popped into a local sandwich shop and you can hear people about how they were going to help each other, who was staying with who. not a lot of complaints. all the team is getting people back on their feet. >> yeah, it's nice. everybody is pulling together

nations on earth that have gdps of a trillion or more. susan lee is outside apple's upper west side store here in manhattan. hi, susan. >> hey, shep. yes, that's to a record rally. apple crossing the $1 trillion historical threshold earlier today. that goes to strong earnings this week. we're buying a lot of expensive iphones. that's one of the best selling consumer products in history. over $1.4 billion being sold since its introduction ten years ago. the story of apple, yes, it's the most valuable company in the world today but there was a time in the middle of the 90s when business week put out a cover, called the demise of an earn icon. then they brought in steve jobs. we know the history and the story of where apple has gone since then. when steve jobs died in october 2011, apple was worth $343 billion. tripling since then to be over a
trillion dollars. shep? >> shepard: only $3 billion when he came in there. man alive. thanks. there's word that google might be giving in to communist china now. eight years ago, google shut down their search engine because of censorship and hacking there. according to multiple records, google is working on a censored search engine just for china. back to susan lee for that. you were in hong kong in 2010, covered their fight with the chinese government. how surprising is this? >> very surprising. in 2010, when google exited the search market, it was an acrimony use split. sergei bryn compared the chinese government to a regime. now they're saying that google
is kowtowing to china's censorship rules. we saw some translation apps there. we bought a half billion dollar stake in one of the largest retailing companies in the country. you know, people are questioning whether or not they want to get back in since their employees did of course go up against google's management when they wanted to use their artificial and give their artificial intelligence for the military to use. so this is something that i'm sure google might have to fight against if they want to get back into the chinese search market. back to you. >> shepard: susan lee in new york. the trump administration looking to roll back another one of president obama's policies. this time it has to do with fuel standards and how many miles per gallon your car or truck gets. the fox business network's adam shapiro has that. >> while the standards are supposed to rise, what the administration is proposing and they point out it's just a
proposal, is freezing the increases. by 2025, the obama straight wanted the cap a standards to be at roughly 54 miles per gallon. well, the trump administration is saying we need to freeze at the level we'll be at come 2021 because one, it's going to cost too much for people to buy the cars that will perhaps meet these standards. they're also making an argument that perhaps these standards would make vehicles or driving even more dangerous. whichever you believe, there's states which are lining up like california to sue the administration because the other proposal is to believe california's ability to enact their own emissions standards. here's what sarah sanders said about doing that. >> what the epa released yesterday was a notice of proposed rule making, not a final rule. it lays out options with how to go with cafe standards. we're opening it up for a comment period.
>> shepard, there's some truth to the fact that when you increase the fuel mileage, you might increase the cost of the car. toyota did that with its camry and it's more expensive. toyota said you recover the increases costs by the money you save on gasoline. back to you. >> shepard: thanks, adam in the fox business newsroom in new york. investigators say a police chief died of a drug overdose. where did he get the drugs? in the evidence room at the cop shop. where else? the story behind that is next.
>> shepard: a police chief in ohio overdosed on drugs he reportedly stole from the department's evidence room. that's according to local news outlets citing the police. it happened in kirkersville, which about 115 miles south and west of cleveland. the police chief there, james hughes, died in may of a fentanyl overdose. investigators say they found heroin and lsd in his home.
jonathan hunt with the rest of this story. jonathan? >> shep, chief james hughes was 35 years old. he had only been chief two months when he was found dead at his home in reynoldsburg about ten miles from the police headquarters where he was chief and where he was believed to have taken the drugs from the department's evidence room. police say they found an open package of fentanyl and closed packages of heroin, lsd and more fentanyl. reynoldsburg police department says the state attorney general should investigate kirkersville for their evidence handling. there was questions raised about hughes' past including a racial slur in an incident in 2013. he was convicted of a misdemeanor over that incident. lieutenant wright in the neighboring reynoldsburg police department says the case shows no one is immune from the drug
epidemic that has gripped the country saying "it's happening in all different levels and all walks of life" shep. >> shepard: and evidence is really overwhelming of this epidemic. >> it is. fentan fentan fentanyl analog drugs are part of it. the number of deaths involving fentanyl analogs almost doubled from the first half of 2016 to the first half of 2017. the study was centered on ten states including ohio and found that from july 2016 to december 2016, there were 764 fentanyl analog deaths. while the numbers nationally for
2017 are still preliminary, the cdc says they expect overall opioid-related deaths to upto an all-time high of 49,000. the justice department recently announced a crackdown on the distribution of fentanyl called operation sos. >> shepard: thanks, jonathan. the head of cbs is set to take questions since six women have accused him of sexual harassment. les moonves expected to be on a conference call. it's expected to start at 4:30 eastern. last week the new yorker magazine reported that four women have accused moonves of forcible touching or kissing during meetings. two others that he physically intimidated him or threaten to derail their careers.
