tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  February 8, 2019 4:00pm-5:00pm PST

4:00 pm
marthmartha mccallum starts right now. >> martha: hi there, jon. thank you. breaking tonight, folks. brand new calls, brand new information just coming in moments ago with regard to lieutenant governor of virginia justin fairfax and calls from within his party to ask him to resign. fairfax is now accused by a second woman, a classmate at duke university who said she told friends back in 2,000 that he raped her. fairfax says she is lying. he has called that charge, quote, demonstrably false. this providing an ugly, but no doubt welcome distraction for governor northam who now seems to be riding out the storm over the yearbook photo as his succession plan looks a bit unviable at the moment. here's fairfax earlier today. >> good morning. >> any message for the citizens of virginia? >> we have [inaudible]?
4:01 pm
>> moments from now howie kurtz and trace gallagher in our west coast newsroom with the breaks news. trace. >> second accuser is meredith watson who says the assault happened in 2,000 when they were both undergrads at duke university. the two were friends never dated or had any romantic leadership. so far not detailed premeditated attack she claims her attack was similar to the first accuser, vanessa tyson who says that she and fairfax were at the dnc convention in boston in 2004 when he asked her to go to his hotel room to get documents and they began kissing, consensually, but then she claims fairfax put his hand behind her head and forced her to perform oral sex. watson has called that encounter consensual. and concerning the allegations by meredith watson fairfax says, quote: i demand a full investigation into these unsubstantiated and false
4:02 pm
allegation. he goes on to say he is telling the truth. meredith watson's attorney says she shared the details of her rape with a number of people who have now issued statements to corroborate her story. the attorney also said, quote: ms. watson is reluctantly coming forward out of a strong sense of civic duty and her belief that those seeking or serving in public office should be of the highest character. she has no interest in becoming a media personality or reliving the trauma that has greatly affected her life. similarly, she is not seeking any financial damages. former virginia governor terry mcauliff tweeted, quote: the allegation against justin fairfax are serious and credible. it is clear to me that he can no longer effectively serve the people of virginia as lieutenant governor. i call for his immediate resignation. virginia's five democratic members of congress have also called for fairfax to step down as has new jersey democratic senator and 2020 presidential candidate cory booker and now democratic
4:03 pm
virginia state lawmaker says on monday he will begin the process of impeaching justin fairfax if he doesn't step down. and we should note governor ralph northam is again reiterating as he did today that he will not step down. martha. >> quite a story. joining me now is howie curetsd host of media buzz. what's your take on the new developments. >> make no mistake, martha, justice fairfax in deep trouble the allegations by new accuser meredith watson moves the debate from a he said, she said over sexual encounter with the first woman vanessa tyson, which fairfax claims is consensual to a much more troubling question whether there is a pattern of sexual misconduct. and i don't think lieutenant governor is doing himself any favors by accusing meredith watson of a smear, the same words, the same phrase smear campaign that he used against the first woman. why would either of these women, what do they have to
4:04 pm
gain by coming forward as trace noted. they are not asking for money and going on tv or seeking publicity. they have an obligation to come forward because it looked like justin fairfax was on the verge of becoming virginia's governor. >> martha: when you look at covering this story, he can certainly say he is innocent if he believes is he innocent. that's what he is doing. we talked so much about due process in the kavanaugh case and when you look at that, you know, you think back to kristin blasey ford saying that she had shared the story with friends much later on. you know, i noel son barber reported earlier that they have asked the lawyers to turn over these documents that substantiate the fact that she did share this story with people and, you know, i guess one of the questions is when? is it clearly documented at the time that she says this happened and, if that's the case, then that's very significant. very credible. or was it later? it's a valid question. >> on that very point, alma
4:05 pm
martha, on the record a friend of meredith watson saying she came crying to her when they were students at duke. saying she was raped by the man who is now virginia's lieutenant governor. one person on the record offering that kind of corroboration. at the same time the contrast the way the much less substantiated allegations were treated against brett kavanaugh, you didn't have any corroborating witnessesreally striking because at that time you had all these liberal commentators, not to mention democrats saying kavanaugh cannot possibly be confirmed and all women must be believed. but, until now, we just hear a about a rush of democrats including terry mcauliff saying fairfax should step down. many have been cautious. tepid or silent not applying the same standard that they themselves brought to the kavanaugh hearing. >> martha: that's a great point. believe all women. all women must be believed was the refrain you heard from so many halls and across so much of the media during the brett kavanaugh situation. and it has taken quite a
4:06 pm
while, howie, and this second allegation, which as you say, has at least one person who claims that she came to her crying at the time. you know, we really, it's incumbent upon everybody who covers these stories to do them fairly for both sides. >> you know, the fact is, for the political people, you know, democrats and republicans, same thing, much more reluctant to cry for somebody's political scalp when it's somebody on your own team. the person here the biggest impact now i think on virginia is that it looked like ralph northam was about five seconds away from resigning now i think he clearly is going to be able to hang on because even though the 35-year-old incident of blackface, that he has 'fessed up to is offensive and racist, it kind of pails in comparison to his number two who is now being accused of criminal conduct. >> martha: that raises a lot of questions about the political match nations and the competition to stay in power and all of these things that just tumbled out at once. then you had the attorney
4:07 pm
general also coming forward a picture was going to surface saying he too, you know, something he saw as harmless at the time dressed up like rappers with friends of his. i mean, and also it keeps trike ising me at the beginning of all of this is northam talking about third trimester abortion in a way a lot of people felt extremely upsetting. >> gave controversial interview in which he came out for abortion being allowed under a law that he seemed to be supporting up until the day of birth. and the reason these two stories are tied together is that that's how the original allegation about the blackface and the 1984 yearbook surfaced because it's been reported that some of his medical school classmates back when he was doing this blackface thing were so upset about his abortion comments that they felt the need to go to the press. so, northam looked like he couldn't hang on. some people were saying, look, it was 35 years ago. maybe he has changed.
4:08 pm
not excusing what he did at all. politics is always compared to what? >> martha: pretty remarkable come out and say that's me in the picture i'm pretty embarrassed and then go back and talk about it over the weekend which he said did he with his wife and come back and say it's not me. he seems to be hanging on. howie, good to have you here tonight. >> good to see you. >> martha: coming up next, the world's richest man goes head to head with a tabloid that he says tried to extort him. now federal prosecutors are getting into this story. attorney mark breaks it all down right after this. ♪ ♪

4:13 pm
$135 billion at last check. explosive blog post came out last evening he laid out the bear intimate details of own extramarital affair in an attempt to turn the tablesz and expose what he says is the "national enquirer's" effort to blackmail him. bethesda pleciousd this alleged efail from one of the tabloid's editors who claimed to have possession of a cash of lured photos, can you see. so things listed here that bezos exchanged with his mistress, allegedly. why would the enquirer do this despite this is what they love to do? bezos claims it's for political reasons. he owns "the washington post" and has been a frequent target of president trump's. they have gone back and forth quite a bit. president trump says he is not covered fairly and jeff bezos says he is reports tonight indicate that federal prosecutors are now also getting involved here. joining me now mark, criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor. mark, good to have you here. does he have a case here for
4:14 pm
extortion and blackmail against the enquirer? >> he might if what he is alleging is true and can be proven extortion is not reserved for victimy from the mob threatening your family members unless you pay a certain amount of money. federal law has a much wider view of extortion. anyone who tries to obtain property of fear may be committing extortion. a statement claiming actions were not politically motivated and certainly the use of fear was involved could spell out extortion claim. >> so bezos had an attorney and investigating what was going on ami america media company that owns the enquirer. then they sent this letter. they wanted bezos to back off. so he gets this letter saying, look, we have all these pictures. let's settle this whole thing right here. >> right. >> martha: unlike most human being notice world, he said
4:15 pm
no. and published it all. here's a quote from john cassidy. >> martha, i love it because it's right out of alexander hamilton's playbook, right? he published his own sorted affair in the reynolds pamphlet. this guy is saying you are not going to extort me i will let everybody know about it and i will take away your power. i love it. >> martha: good for him. i think a lot of people feel that wait a minute new yorker a piece titled why the "national enquirer's" attempt to extort jeff bezos back fired. memo to the honchos at the "national enquirer," if you are going to threaten one of the richest men in the world by saying you have sexually explicit selfies of him and his girlfriend don't have the lawyer and editor put the threats in writing. >> that is rookie 101. for 26 years i have been trying to settle mini cases and there is always that hint of well, you know, there -- it could be deemed extortion so you watch your lang wham carefully.
4:16 pm
apparently they didn't their best argument is going to be well the lawyers drew it up and we were just going along with what they said. prosecutors may still not like that. >> martha: what it sells me and, you know, is that they probably, likely send letters like that all the time. and that it usually works out fine people settle and they pay quickly. >> ronan farrell is saying it happened to me cultural perspective how we look. a couple days before they were ready to break these stories about these initial text messages he then very publicly came out and said that he and his wife were splitting. it may have been prompted by the knowledge that this story was about to go public in a have big and ugly way. jeff wang who writes for the week. jeff bezos is among the 88% of american adults who have
4:17 pm
sexted. i don't know where she got that number but apparently that's the case that ceo sections is not news. in fact the existence of bezos' niewdz are not even particularly salacious in this day and age. what do you think about that? >> i'm an advocate for the first amendment. i give them wide latitude to publish a lot of the stuff that makes me cringe and i think is inappropriate. i draw the line on using those images to extort people if those people out there don't care about jeff bezos it's not about jeff bezos it's about all of us. we don't want this happening to us either. we have to lay down the hammer. >> martha: where do you think this goes before i let you go? >> where does it go? it went. he got his pound of flesh. ami looks really bad right now. although the executives say we are looking into it, they already came out and said we think what we did was legal. to me that's talking out of both sides.
4:18 pm
i think ultimately this all goes away. >> martha: they also have federal prosecutors looking at them. they were supposed to be under some new understanding of rules after the two women and the deal with, you know, squelching their story during the trump campaign. so, they are going to be looked at by the federal prosecutors as well in all of this. we will see where that goes. mark, great to have you. thank you very much. >> same here, thanks, martha. >> martha: you bet. coming up next acting attorney general matt whitaker said he didn't want his hearing to turn into political theater. oh boy. when we come back. ♪ ♪ >> mr. collins. >> you can go sit down there. you are not his lawyer. >> and neither are you. >> ask questions that are actually instead of running down there we could get this done. ♪ st to make you everybody else... ♪ ♪ means to fight the hardest battle, which any human being can fight and never stop.

>> mr. chairman, i see that your five minutes is up and so. [laughter] we -- i am here voluntarily. we have agreed to five-minute rounds and. [gavel] >> martha: that was just the beginning for acting attorney general matthew whitaker's contentious testimony on capitol hill today. democrats first at bat as majority on the committee wasted no time trying to nail down whether whitaker was acting actively against the mueller probe. >> you wouldn't oversee a witch-hunt, would you? you would stop a witch-hunt, wouldn't you? can you say right now mr. president bob mueller is honest and not conflicted? >> congressman, i'm not a puppet to repeat what you are saying. >> are you able to say it or do you not believe it. >> after this hearing you can spin the contusion all you want. as you sit here today you just have to answer a factual yes or no ye question. >> i'm asking a specific question.
4:24 pm
>> you have challenged my character. >> no, no, i'm asking you a question. i control this time mr. whitaker. if you want to ask the chairman for time of your own. this is my time. >> martha: wow, david bossie trump deputy campaign manager and fox news contributor and former speech writer to attorney general eric holder and loretta lynch. thank you, both, gentlemen for being here. jake, let me start with you. did you think they acquitted themselves well in there? >> i think that the democrats did some legitimate oversight that's been missing from this administration over the last two years. i don't think that acting attorney general whitcher acquitted himself very well. at one point somebody accused the democrats of selling his character which is a little ridiculous considering that the acting attorney general was previously the pitch man for fraudulent company that sold toilets and time machines. he didn't put his best food forward for sure. he didn't come in with the highest of expectations he certainly left having crawled under the bar that had been set for him. he didn't answer questions. he was angry. he lashed out at members of
4:25 pm
the committee at the chairman. it was a bad showing for him. but it was a really important example of oversight that this administration is going to have to get used to. >> martha: david? >> well, the politics of personal destruction are in full effect and jake just continued it just now. look, that's what they were doing. they were -- its would an assault of questions by the democrats who hate this president more than they love the country. they had no intention of trying to get answers to legitimate questions. this was a side show. it was a circus. and that's what this white house is going to be looking at for the next two years. jake is definitely right about that. and the -- by the way, the republicans better strap on their helmets and they better find their footing because this is just the first salvo. >> martha: it raises the question. i had trey gowdy on the other night he said if i were advising matt whitaker which he wasn't if i were asked i would tell him not to go. there is going to be a new attorney general in a matter of days. and it was pretty clear where this was going to
4:26 pm
head. this is a person who is leaving this position. so, what, exactly, what was the goal, do you think, jake? what were they hoping to achieve by trying to get him to admit that he was against the mueller probe when he really won't have any role, he will not be able to, you know, be effective in one way or the other with regard to the probe in a few days? >> well, the goal isn't getting him to admit anything. the goal is to get insight. >> martha: it isn't? come on. they definitely wanted him to admit that he was biased against the probe. that he thought it was a witch-hunt and that he had been actively trying to do what he could within his ability to -- you know, to leak information to get information out there about anything he knew. he said he hasn't seen the report. so how can you say that based on their questions that we just showed that that wasn't part of their mission today? >> i think that they were asking those questions because they wanted those answers. i don't think they are difficult questions. if the answers are things like i am -- you know, i am the person -- i am
4:27 pm
overseeing this investigation in a fair and reasonable way. i don't think those are difficult questions. they are only difficult if you are person who is matt whitaker who doesn't want to answer them. >> martha: i didn't say they were difficult questions. they were questions that appeared to have a pretty clear agenda. >> their questions didn't have a clear answer he didn't want to touch. >> the democrats didn't want their answers. didn't want matt whitaker's answers because those answers were i didn't speak to the president about this. i didn't impede mueller's probe at all. i was never involved in the decision-making of the mueller probe. those answers, which we have all believed to be true because we see the mueller probe is winding down. we're going to get a report which we hope will become public so that we, the american people, can see exactly what mueller was up. to say. >> martha: yeah. i mean, that's really what it comes down to here. you know, you have -- no one knows when this report is going to come out. but that's really going to be, you know, when the pedal hits the metal here, jake.
4:28 pm
when everybody gets to take a look at what exactly is in this report, right? then these questions won't really be necessary, i would imagine. >> certainly i think it's really important that the public get a look at this report. william barr who has been nominated to be attorney general hasn't said whether he would allow it to become public. that's a real problem. i definitely agree it should become public that people should be able to seat result of this probe. part of what we want to make sure of and part of what democrats are trying to make sure of is that this probe is being carried on appropriately and is not being impeded by the president or his staff any more than he has already admitted to doing that. >> martha: i have 20 seconds left. final thought, david? >> self-evident that matt whitaker said today very clear live he didn't talk to the white house. didn't talk to the president. didn't impede this investigation. that definitely came out even though the democrats on the committee were rude to him and didn't even allow him to answer fundamental questions. it was a ridiculous charade. >> martha: chairman nadler is going to bring him back possibly under subpoena to get answers.

4:35 pm
candidates might have about embracing the proposal are simply overwhelmed by the near-term political backlash of getting on the wrong side of the progressive orbit ahead of these primaries. here now steve hilton, host of the next revolution. steve, good to have you with us tonight. >> hi, martha. >> martha: it's interesting, the stanford study i want to point out this one item before i get your response says that moving to 100 percent renewable energy system by 2050, which is part of this proposal requires a 13.4 trillion-dollar upfront capital investment. what do you say? >> well, that's what they don't want to talk about, which is the individual items in this plan. they don't want to talk about the detail. you heard it there they are all focusing on saving the planet and grandiose statements. when you actually look at the detail can you see how unserious this is. yet, they are all getting behind it. when you challenge them on it, when you point out that this will destroy jobs on a massive scale in oil and gas
4:36 pm
and fracking and air travel and space exploration and all these other areas that we lie on fossil fuel and will do for many, many years to come, regardless of what happens with technology. when you point all that out to them they just say oh, well, you don't care about the environment. yes we do care about the environment but we always care about jobs and living standards and our economy. and this proposal is just a complete joke when it comes to those things. >> martha: the premises that greenhouse gas emissions that cause the globe to warm anything north of 1.5 degrees celsius is about to plunge the country into a massive human and economic chaos that's in the coming years. that's what they are saying. they are saying we have to do all of these things because it's going to cost an enormous amount of money if the globe warms to this level that will cause all of this economic chaos. you don't agree with that? >> no. none of that is true there are studies that are shown that actually it's far cheaper to deal with the short-term consequences of
4:37 pm
climate change in terms of protecting against flooding and so on than it is to invest in these technologies which are so early. they are not ready yet. one day it may be the case with innovation and scientific advance that solar power, for example, is much more viable than it is today. we are a long way away from that today. we are nowhere near that for example when it comes to air travel which is one of the things they want to see ended within the 10-year period of this proposal. so it's just not realistic. it's not serious. but they don't care. because they just want to send a message that, as you said, they are on the right side of this argument on the green agenda. >> martha: yeah. but what cory booker is saying, senator booker is saying that you have to think big. we never would have gotten to the moon, for example, if we hadn't sort of laid out this very sort of hopeful marker and then you have to make adjustments along the way to figure out the practicalities that this is sort of a big dream. it's a big goal and that is
4:38 pm
what think are getting behind. they would say that you, you know, are going to look back on this moment and say that you were wrong. >> no, i agree about setting out a long-term vision. but this isn't that long-term. that's the problem with it. so, i'm all for saying, you know, let's make the transition to a cleaner energy future. but that transition is going to have to take an awful long time because the disruption in the meantime is going to hurt real people real families who work in those industries. the other thing i would say about what cory booker is saying and he really gives the game away here. because one of the other big problems of this plan he talks about fighting the nazis. that's the analogy they have here a war time effort. what they are talking about is a massive centralization of the economy commands economy of war time. >> martha: that's the whole deal. >> disaster in terms of making progress. >> martha: part of the whole deal. the centralization of the government to control this entire process and in that process they are saying jobs will be eliminated because there will be so much governmental control but don't worry even those who
4:39 pm
are unwilling to work they laid out in the early draft of this will get a government salary. everybody will work for the government. what does that sound like? >> again, this is just completely pie in the sky. they are not alone in thinking that there is a whole strand of thinking, a lot of it in silicon valley where i am speaking to you from all the tech people getting behind the idea of a universal basic income. people getting paid for a living regardless of whether they work or don't. >> martha: take so many people's jobs. they are trying to figure out how they are going to replace it? >> exactly. but none of this is realistic. and in the end, the bottom line is, that you have to have a strong growing economy to create the wealth to invest in these technologies of the future. if you are just handing out money and creating jobs from the government that won't happen. and so counter productive. they don't care about any of that because they want to send the message. >> martha: going to be a very interesting battle over this two years ahead as we
