playing poker with him, i fold. >> republicans are crafting a short-term spending bill to keep the government open with republican only votes, $5 billion in wall funding and other federal agencies into january and provide billions in aid after wildfires in the west. the house could vote on this as soon as today, but it is certainly uncertain as chuck schumer reiterates the president's plan will not work. >> donald trump will soon realize his position will not result in a wall, but will result in a trump shutdown. >> relishing the idea amazingly enough. >> reporter: the chairman of the senate appropriations committee, richard shelby, says he's confident something can be done. >> probably around one of negotiations public and private going on. we have 11 days.

heather: both sides arguing their case. reacting to michael cohen's sentencing national security strategist sebastian gorka and jason chaffetz say michael cohen should go to jail and they both believe this proved an unequal pursuit of justice. >> michael cohen admitted he is a liar and the kind of guy who has no calls, the most sensitive thing a lawyer has is his relationship with a client, that exclusivity, confidentiality. this man taped conversations with who knows how many clients? what is the president of the united states. >> doesn't feel like we have equal application of justice. the inspector general is looking at half i guess a abuse and we will not hear about it until spring or so because there are 1 million document they have to sift through. once we have that information the inspector general can't

honduras, demanding entry, he has been living in mexico, demanding this amount of money so that ties into it. in your opinion, does this tip their hand and show this is political in nature? >> it is almost like the mafia coming to ask for money. this is political blackmail. we have a situation where instead of asking the taxpayer to pay for them and their mistakes they should be asking this character and people without borders, this group without borders that encouraged them to make this trip to the border. shannon: they gave 72 hours to respond to this, to speed up the asylum process. as we talk about speeding the asylum process we look at the migrants caravan numbers as they roll forward and they are really
unprecedented. >> it is ridiculous. go ahead, sorry. heather: talk a little more about the numbers here in the time it takes to seek asylum. >> the situation we have got, they are playing the system. we have so many loopholes. as donald trump has pointed out we have so many loopholes in the immigration system that people are not only getting under the fence as they are now but getting through these loopholes and what we need to do is tighten it up. i hope the president stand strong on this end a lot of the republicans, cowardly republicans stand strongly because we have got to draw a line in the sand, and not allow any more illegal immigration into the country.
heather: in terms of the border wall and security and whether it will work because there've been discrepancies about the numbers and the work being done at the border and the dhs press secretary, proven facts, dhs has prevented 3755 known or suspected terrorists from traveling or entering the us in fiscal year 2017, that is in addition to 17,000 criminals, 1000 gang members and 3000 special-interest aliens. >> homeland security is doing a good job, but just one illegal criminal in our country is one too many and we can pat ourselves on the back and say we caught this many but as long as
there is one endangering our neighborhoods, our families, that is one too many. we have a situation yesterday where there was a man convicted of raping a 6-year-old, we have these situations constantly all over the place we can point to these incidents and one is one too many. was we need to do is not only build a barrier that is going to discourage and stop the illegal immigration but we have to start deporting people. >> is $5 billion too much to keep that from happening? >> absolutely not. shannon: appreciate you joining us. the time is 19 after the top of the hour, first lady milania trump thinking troops while sailing aboard an aircraft carrier. >> it is important to show them the president and i and the country will find them. >> how she's using her white

>> people reflect on the year using the hashtag 2018 in 5 words was one day after the fiery oval office meeting chuck schumer used the very hashtag to take a swipe at the president. the democratic lawmaker retweeted a comment from the president in 2016 saying mexico will pay for the wall but he had a comment of his own, there was always a tweet, hashtag 2018 and 5 words. 39,000 likes. a lot of conservative social media users were not fond of this was when twitter user says show some class and the courtroom, senator. another twitter user china in saying senator schumer, why are you opposed to securing the border. we must secure the country or be unsafe like france and dennis on
twitter chiming in saying you agreed to fund the wall not long ago, now you're trying to use the wall to make political, which is it? what that twitter users referring to is a 2006, senator chuck schumer and nancy pelosi and many democrats agreed to sign legislation that would put 700 miles of fencing around the southern border. is talking point that is going to be repeatedly brought up. heather: different president, different time. let's talk about the most googled person in the us for 2018. >> global revealed their list of the most googleed people, number 3, brett kavanaugh. i'm sure that won't surprise anybody at home. newly married megan markel at number 2 and like you said, denny love otto, the most searched person on google this year. she suffered from a drug overdose in july, that scared a

to extremism and the list is long. >> police tracked down a mug shot of the gunman. he already had 27 committal convictions for theft and violence in france, germany and switzerland. he was in and out of prison and during a 2-year prison stint from 2013-15 he fell in with islamic radicals. after the attack and two gunbattles with police cherif chekatt commandeered attacks to make a get away. the driver of the taxi says cherif chekatt was bragging about people he killed a christmas market, the driver says cherif chekatt was wounded, shot in the arm and dropped the alleged gunman in an area 10 minutes from the site of the attack. that is the area cherif chekatt had an apartment, the apartment was rated hours before the attack, in connection to an
armed robbery that developed into an attempted murder charge. when police got in the residence they did not find them but they found a rifle, ammunition, explosives, several hunting knives. french officials suspect the prospect of returning to prison triggered the attack. and that was adjusted to four and individuals identified as cherif chekatt's parent and two brothers. >> thank you for joining us. take a look, live coverage from turkey, 9 people dead and dozens injured racing to rescue any remaining passenger. it is unclear what caused the crash. we will keep you updated.

country, we are behind them. >> the first lady speaking in an exclusive interview in military bases around the washington dc area. back to one of our top stories, donald trump's former lawyer michael cohen sentence to three years in prison after admitting to tax invasion, campaign finance and lying. when it comes to campaign-finance did he break the law or are the goal posts being moved in the host prosecutors go after the president himself. joining us to explain his spokeswoman for the judicial crisis network gail trotter, thanks for joining us, appreciate it. let's take a look at the sentencing michael cohen received, 3 years in prison for tax even asian, campaign-finance violation, $50,000 on, $5000 restitution and voluntary surrender day of march 6th.
's attorney says he will spend the time between now and march 6th working with robert mueller and telling him as much as he knows about donald trump. what are the implications for donald trump? >> just because someone pleads guilty to a crime does not mean that a crime has been committed. michael cohen was president of this plea agreement based on a very expansive and aggressive interpretation of the campaign-finance law. even if you accept michael cohen and the prosecutors version of the events that does not mean that the president committed any offense and in fact when you look at the prior precedent on this issue and the underlying statutes, the whole issue is whether or not something was done for the purpose of influencing an election and in this case and others that have
been part of this chain of cases it is clear to see this action could have been taken irrespective of the election and that is the key legal issue for the president going forward. >> one of those being prior presidential contender john edwards. what happened in that case? >> the court did not hold that up because john edwards was able to make the case with his lawyers that he would make that expenditure irrespective of the election and when you look at the logical outcome of the prosecutor's argument, you are saying campaign finances should be expended on this arrangement and most people who contribute to a presidential campaign or another campaign don't expect their contributions would go towards that or you are trying to keep information that is
publicly embarrassing there's a reason to contain it that is irrespective of influencing any election. heather: rudy giuliani had a statement and one thing he pointed out was the idea that michael cohen was blindly loyal to donald trump which is what he said yesterday, is absurd. on the one hand he says he was blindly loyal, then reported without permission and leaked it to the press. which do you have? which michael cohen are you talking about? >> great point. any attorney knows the ideas that you would record your client without their permission just makes the skin crawl. it is a violation of every idea, moral, legal implications that you would have on the loyalty to your client so certainly rudy giuliani is making a very strong argument here that rebuts what the prosecutors said about the relationship michael cohen had
with the president. >> some business that is getting them, the senate confirming the first judicial nominee in two month yet despite democrat resistance donald trump still setting a circuit court record in terms of appointing these judges. the numbers he has appointed between the inauguration and december 2, '30 for donald trump, compared to 11 for barack obama and you can look at the rest of the numbers there. finally another appointment, still very successful for him. >> donald trump continues to deliver on this very important promise to rebalance the federal judiciary and appoint high-quality judges who understand that the role of a judge is to interpret the law, not make the law. the senate has the ability to continue to push forward on these nominations. we have many people in the pipeline, many vacancies and it is the responsibility of the
senate to do their job and continue to vet and confirm these nominees and donald trump has fulfilled his end of his presidential duty and the senate should continue to move with haste to confirm these nominees. >> doing it without democrats and without jeff flake. gail trotter, appreciate it. the time is 20 minutes until the top of the hour and it has infiltrated communities nationwide and may not be far from your door, the deadliest drug in america just revealed and she really did know they were trouble when they walked in. the soffer taylor swift used to search for her stalker. ♪ this is how it made me feel. it was like that feeling when you're mowing the lawn on a sunny day... ...and without even trying, you end up with one last strip that's exactly the width of your mower. when you're done,
