the house judiciary committee decided to go king co-s and release full report of articles of impeachment and big report. ainsley: 658 pages. the that impeachment push not sitting well with all the democrats. jeff andrew might soon leave the party. steve: not surprising given the statistics in that particular district. ellison barber joins us live from washington to explain. this is going to be a very big week. >> yes, it is. the house judiciary committee plurentd that full impeachment report. 658 pages by the way around midnight. the report is broken down into four key parts explaining the committee's process for recommending two articles of impeachment against president trump, discussing the standard for impeachment and the justification for charging the president with abuse of power and obstruction of congress. it also included a dissent. committee republicans call democrats' actions unjustifiable in their dissent adding this: quote the facts residence coasted
3:02 am
it. some of these arguments are holdovers from an earlier disingenuous attempt by the majority to weaponize the russia collusion for investigation for political gain. likely impeach president trump for christmas. in the senate all eyes would turn to the trial. democrats will have one less member in the house. jeff van drew. multiple senior democratic sources expect van drew to switch parties. fox is told van drew notified the new jersey congressional delegation of a pending switch and on friday, acowarding to a white house official. the new jersey congressman met with president trump to talk about becoming a republican. van drew was planning to split with democrats and vote against impeaching president trump. democrats are down playing the party switch. >> well whea is reacting to is public polling that shows he can't get renominated his electorate in his district. the point, this is not political. do we stay a democratic
3:03 am
republic or do we turn into a tyranny? >> according to the latest fox news poll support for impeachment is holding steady with 50% say they favor impeaching and removing president trump from office. ainsley, brian, steve. steve: all right, ellison, thank you very much. jeff van drew in his district. he said 60% of his district wants to nominate somebody else. the big question is do they want a different person or do they want a republican in a particular district that went for donald trump by 5 votes or rather 5% in 2016 and jeff van drew flipped it two years later. ainsley: in the beginning he said i don't support impeachment he voted against it. steve: he told constituents i'm not switching parties. clearly, it's gotten to the point where i can't take it anymore. he says i am no longer aligned with the democrats because he does not feel like that's mr. van drew of new jersey right there. he is one of those people
3:04 am
who is behind senel suring the president. not for impeaching him. brian: right. i thought they were told to go look inside their conscience and souls to decide how they were going to vote. democrats not going to whip any votes. vote your conscience. he is going to vote his conscience and whip the party. can you vote your con venezuela and check your soul vongs you come out with the answer i agree with. number two. steve: speaking of nancy pelosi. brian: right. i should have. steve: because it seemed like you. brian: ainsley, why did you let me get away with that how dare you just sit there another things to keep in mind. they lost two votes, of the congressman from michigan and now the congressman who might be flipping parties as well as voting. and then you have a lot of so-called moderates in republican states that might switch. the bigger picture is in every other impeachment, other parties have swimpsd. there were 31 democrats who voted for republicans against bill clinton. now you have zero
3:05 am
republicans and you are looking at how many democrats. everyone is choosing to bury that part of this story that's how weak this case is. ainsley: completely partisan. not one republican in favor of it. steve: at the same time, a lot of democrats are getting weak-kneed right now because they they look at 30 of them are in districts where republicans and the republican groups are now runs ads hey look what your congressman is doing. you voted for trump and your congressman is about to vote for. wimpeachment. that's why nancy pelosi is offering sweetener. i know you don't want to vote for impeachment. if you do i will give you a win usmca when you go back and somebody says at the barbershop what the heck were you thinking? look, i brought jobs back. ainsley: i impeached the president but i did give you usmca. steve: i was going to stay say down in texas john ratcliffe hey, democrats, watch this. >> the real question is how
3:06 am
big will the jail break be by the democrats? we have already seen one democrat apparently switching parties over it. another saying he is going to vote against it. and so, really the question is how many more before wednesday's vote in the democrats have made the presidents stake of takes the credibility of all of this on adam schiff, the person they put in charge of this investigation turns out is the one that helped start it by meeting with the person who walked out of adam schiff's office and became the whistleblower. brian: keep in mind, too. the fox news poll came out. i was stunned by. this 50% in the country say they want the president impeached. i was stunned to see that number. i thought it was trending away. the president's approval number did tick up in the same pole. almost like a split personality. james comey, chris wallace. ainsley: on "fox news sunday," yesterday. one of the sunday shows. steve: it was. ainsley: chris gave him a really tough interview. i was proud of him for that james comey actually
3:07 am
admitted, y'all, he was wrong. >> the ig says you should feel no vindication. >> well, maybe it turns upon how we understand the word. i'm responsible -- that's why i'm telling you i was wrong. i was overconfident as director in our procedures. chris: it seemed as you were minimizing the role of the steele dossier. >> if i was, i'm sorry did i that as the director you are not kept informed on the details of an investigation. an inspector general did not find misconduct by any fbi people. he found mistakes and negligence. chris criminals he was asked specifically how do you explain it? >> gross negligence and intentionality. >> i'm sorry he doesn't find intentionality. that doesn't make it any less important. aas director, you are responsible for this. i was responsible for this. steve: what he admitted that he was wrong about was trusting the fbi's process for getting a fisa application and a warrant. he said essentially i was wrong. horowitz was right. he did. ainsley: a little too late.
3:08 am
steve: a little overconfident. chris stated the obvious. that was that in the horowitz report the ig said that there were 17 significant times when the fbi seemed to have their thumb on the scale against the president. brian: here is trey gowdy. he is now a fox news contributor so we are paying him for. this comey admitted he was wrong. sometimes it's better late than never and sometimes it's just too damn late. and in this case comey wases about two years too late. we could have used his objectivity. we could have used him as head of the fbi helping republicans figure out what was happening with fisa instead of thwarting us and obstructing us. he said it was a policy and procedure issue. it's not. they have always been policies against manufacturing evidence and withholding expull pa tore evidence. that's not new. those are not new policies. this is a personnel issue. it's the wrong people in the wrong positions of power. that's not going to be fixed with a new policy or procedure. it's going to be fixed by replacing the people with
3:09 am
what they did in 2016. brian: chris was brilliant in asking questions. he was never forced to take on the issues. an fbi lawyer flipped the answer, does carter page cricket to the cia? they say yes, he said no. that is a huge problem. you are the director. he also does not agree that the steele dossier is, in chris' words bunk. he says i think there is a lot of good parts of it. he does not agree that maybe he should have briefed the president. he does not agree he should have been hands on on an investigation of the presidential candidate. he says as a director you don't get involved in that. as a director you ran to your limo and types up exactly what he said. that is flat out not telling the truth. ainsley: chris said i understand if it's a small investigation. this is a investigation of man who became the president. you didn't know all the details. criminals says you sound like you were a by stander you were the director of the fbi. brian: is he the queen of
3:10 am
england or are you in charge you? steve: inspector general said they could find no political bias at the time at the fbi. time after time and it's in the ig report, mr. horowitz and his team they would ask the fbi officials who were there at the time hey, why did you do this? i don't remember. when did you do that? i don't remember. it does not pass the smell test it. looks like something fishy. that's why mr. durham continues to this day to continue what the heck went wrong. brian: it's going to get worse for him. ainsley: once the durham report came out. president says yeah is he admitting he was wrong. he got caught red handed. he was caught a long time ago. could it be years in jail were there apologies to me and others? brian: i don't understand why the president didn't want to see that interview. i thought the interview did everything to move this story forward. i'm a little confused by that. steve: is that your voice or nancy pelosi. brian: brian kilmeade. steve: you used your last name on yourself like a

3:27 am
he was a hero he went and notified after being shot, the first responders. and directed them where to go. but, like most restrictive gun laws, this allowed the bad guy to have a weapon and prevented the good guys from having a weapon. i think it needs to be looked at and, of course, we need to have the training that goes with having firearms on bases. but if someone is standing watch, steve, they ought to be armed and be able to do something if they find something that is going on. steve: joshua kaleb watson who was standing guy, he was the captain of the rifle team at the naval academy. so he knew what he was doing. general, where did this rule come from where our service members should thought have essentially bull bullets in ther guns on bases? >> back in the clinton administration they passed comprehensive gun legislation and stemming from that you also had

news alert college stuart murder gherd new york city. brian: teenager charged with murder. steve: todd piro joins us live from the park where she was killed. >> steve, ainsley and brian a horrible story. right now the search is on for that killer as the nypd looks for the person they believe stabbed tessa majors. meantime, take a look at this. last night a candlelight vigil right here in morningside park where the freshman was killed. an area according to local media has seen burglaries and robberies rise this year with bands of young teens often the perpetrators. >> there's a for your soul who is thinking of killing someone. how someone reach those age. we have failed. we carry responsibility. todd: as for who did this a 13-year-old suspect charged
3:34 am
with felony murder admitted to being at the scene with two other boys allegedly telling investigators he picked up a knife and handed it to the teen who delivered the fatal strikes. apparently locals around the park say that 13-year-old had attacked another young girl and chased her into a deli just days before tessa's murder. a 14-year-old was also arrested but released for lack of evidence. investigators still looking for that third suspect. as calls for more security grow from cameras to police patrols 24/7. the question on so many minds what leads a 13 or 14-year-old to even contemplate killing somebody. steve, ainsley, brian back to you. steve: todd quickly before did you go. i have read in papers uptick in the number of crimes in that area and that park, right? todd: from 2018 to 2019, there has been a rise and, again, we still have a few more weeks to go no 202019 that is the general concern on so many people's minds this morning.
3:35 am
brian: thanks, todd. ainsley: too young. 13 years old let's bring in dan bongino. good morning to you, dan. >> good to see you all on monday. steve: dan, a week ago, i was talking to you off camera over the weekend and i said what are you going to do later today, it was a saturday you said you were going to go with your mixed mark arts training and have a workout. and it looks like today you are wearing part of that. >> i have two tons of concealer on my right eye. nothing more manly than about two tons of spray paint. i got caught pretty good there that's when you get when you are 45 for rolling around on the mats with guys 18 years old and compete for a living. yeah, it was a rough weekend. thanks for noticing. brian: you know new york city. used to work there. isn't that an area in which the cops have pulled back and now is this the result
3:36 am
of that? >> well, yeah. it is. but we have seen it citywide. this park was one of the more dangerous places in the city. just a couple of decades ago. and you know, guys, i sought transition. i was a young police officer back in the 1990s when the transition from the david continue constituency as mayor era with the more loose police policies rudy giuliani era happened. what was the difference? the key difference was giuliani fully embraced this policy called broken windows policing in conjunction with commissioner bill bratton and jack maple. and what they did was, prior to that very simply, if you jumped the turnstile. if you were drinking in public, they would consider nuisance crimes and the idea was don't waste police resources on these guys let them go. that all changed. broken windows said no. the guy who is drinking in public or the woman drinking in public who jumps the turnstile is the guy who goes on the train and robs or god forbid murders someone. that's the same guy. so if we get them for the
3:37 am
nuisance stuff they won't commit the crime later and it worked. now what's happening in de blasio. de blasio era? they are going back to this old let everything go. it's no big deal it. is a big deal. as we can see, by this unbelievably tragic case that has everyone on the couch saying how did this happen? i know you are thinking the same thing i am. a 13-year-old? come on. ainsley: all right. let's change topics because james comey was interviewed yesterday by chris wallace. and he was commenting on bill barr. bill barr weighed in on the ig report. let's play what bill barr said and then we are going to get comey's reaction. >> these irregularities, these misstatements, these omissions were not satisfactorily explained. and i think that leaves open the possibility to infer bad faith. >> he does not have a factual base as attorney general of the united states to be speculating that agencies acted in bad faith.
3:38 am
the facts are just not there full stop that doesn't make it any less consequential or less important but that's an irresponsible statement. ainsley: the facts aren't there? >> you know, i don't know what jim comey was thinking in that interview. this is really a deeply troubled guy. i don't know if it's narcissism or something worse. but, the fact that jim comey, he clearly didn't read the same report i did. guys, one of the things i wish would go away is this constant media myth. it's not true. people keep saying on other networks and i have heard it, the report says there was no political bias which of course jim comey just ran with. that is not what the report says. that is not true. if you read the report horowitz said he couldn't find documented evidence of political bias to initiate. that is not the same thing. steve: nobody will admit it. >> yes. exactly. nobody admitted. but what he said at multiple points was he couldn't eliminate political bias as a potential motive.
3:39 am
i don't know why this myth keeps getting perpetrated and for comey yesterday during that interview and i thought wallace did a good job pinning him down on this. for comey to not come out with a full ma may a cull part of do you realize what happened here. chris nailed him down there were seven lies or omissions on a spay warrant to spy an on innocent american citizen. he had no explanation. not only were there seven in the three renewals to continue to spy on carter page they added 10 more as if seven lies weren't enough. then they interviewed steele's source in january. january. they renew the warrant three times despite knowing, guys, knowing conclusively steele's source said this is all garbage. comey needs to just come clean. brian: carter page was working for the cia that was just flipped to say he wasn't. >> unbelievable. brian: he thought he was walking in to say i told you. so he seemed stunned by the fact that chris wallace had facts and video. i have never seen anything

4:01 am
capitol hill. steve: president is calling out democrats saying they are being disseminated in their districts. their folks don't like what they where to vote on. brian: kevin corke is live at the white house with more on the back and forth. let's go with the back and end with the forth. >> sounds good with me. the sprint to impeach the president before the end of the year continues. last night the judiciary committee very busy issuing a new report. you heard ainsley just mention it. let me tell you a bit about it. it's a very lengthy report. over 658 pages. part one laying out its investigation of the president. part two crafting its position on the standards for impeachment. part three accusing the president of abusing his power for political gain in order to affect the 2020 race and then part 4 lays out the case for obstruction of congress. now, that is the majority opinion on the committee. but the g.o.p. response was, well, quite the sharp retort. here is part of that it says some of these arguments are just holdovers from an
4:02 am
earlier disingenuous attempt by the majority to weaponize the russia collusion investigation for political gain. it also adds this: the majority's abcs were unprecedented. unjustifiable. and will only dilute the significance of the dire recourse that is impeachment. in other words, a harbinger of things to come. president very active on twitter throughout the day. i suspect that will also be the case today. he said. this. congressional do-nothing democrats are being absolutely disseminated in their districts on the impeachment hoax. people that voted for them are literally screaming in their faces. crazy nancy, a reference to the house speaker, is finding, defending shift j schiff, that would be intel committee chair adam schiff, harder than she thought. #2020 election. there is a round table set for this afternoon, guys. president we imagine will be talking about that and other things impeachment. we will see if he decides to break from the forum itself

and if he does he promise to have you for you. for now back to you. steve: kevin corke on the north lawn sounds like it's pouring. >> freezing rain. ainsley: the white house looks lavender. >> it is indeed. beautiful time of year. steve: the reason why the democrats put out this 658 page report is essentially a bill which the house is going to be voting on the articles of impeachment on wednesday. it looks as if they will impeach the president for obstruction of congress and abuse of power. and then the senate will hold a trial. mitch mcconnell got a letter yesterday from chuck schumer. he says you have got to make it a fair trial. he would like to see it start on january 6th, which is hard because the senators actually aren't sworn in until a day later. probably start on january the 6th. and then the -- mr. schumer also would like to call a bunch of witnesses like mic mulvaney, john bolton, people like that. however, as mr. schumer is

about to find out, what we saw in the house is the minority really doesn't get to pick what happens. ainsley: there is a congressman in new jersey, one of the two that did not vote for impeachment. did not vote for the impeachment inquiry. and now there is talk that he is discussing -- he did discuss with the president whether or not he is going to switch parties now. his name is jeff van drew, represents a portion of new jersey. and he is disgustin discussing becoming a republican. brian: lost five staffers because of it. the democrats are open to it. understand he is checking his conscience just like they told him. to say check their conscience and do what's best for them. the party is not going to be whipped into a vote. congressman steve cohen was very understanding. let's listen. >> i think jeff van drew is making a serious mistake. i understand he feels if he votes against impeachment he will lose in the democratic primary and turn and to go
4:05 am
and be a republican is kind of strange. i have heard of rats jumping off a sinking ship. very few jump on to a sinking ship. the lowest thing in the congress is somebody on the minority side who is a traitor to the majority. brian: maybe is he not going to be in the minority after 2020. steve: big question is and we have heard the president and his allies say there are 30 democrats in districts that voted for donald trump in 2016. millions of dollars are going to be pumped into those tv markets offer the next couple of days to remind the voters what their democratic congressman are about to do you have to wonder how many will feel the heat. ultimately we saw what he said but, you know, to your earlier point, he was one of the first two who were against even the inquiry of the impeachment inquiry and the big question remaining is will he vote against impeachment as a democrat
4:06 am
against republican. more powerful if he were still a democrat. brian: major thing is i'm watching what democrats have done over the last year and a half and i want to switch parties that is titanic. here is what the president said. thank you for your honesty, jeff. all of the democrats know you are right. unlike you, they don't have the guts to say. so i'm very curious to see if nancy pelosi is going to give the green light to some democrats to do it or just claim she did. and just keep in mind in the big picture, and this can't be stated enough. every other impeachment party flips with nixon with clinton they lost 30 democrats who voted to impeach, to bill clinton. here, no republicans are voting to impeach the president. and the bigger question is how many democrats will defect? that's how polarized we have become or how weak the case is. ainsley: apparently jeff van drew when they polled his district. the majority of the folks when they lived there said they wanted somebody else in office. whether it's republican. i'm not sure. that's why the governor of new jersey is saying this is
4:07 am
a desperate move. he is doing this salvage his own re-election. steve: he thinks five or six top democrats will vote with republicans against impeachment. and in other words, impeachment would be bipartisan nut opposition. brian: smart guy on capitol hill. how many are there there? people are going to know how are talking about. steve: i know just one. meanwhile jeff van drew is from the great garden state of new jersey where i live. and as it turns out later on today a vote in new jersey after gone through legislature. people in the country illegally to get driver's license. the transportation committee approved the bill on thursday and governor phil murphy, a democrat down in dresden ton, a governor of new jersey said he will sign it promptly. keep in mind, new jersey will be taking that up later
4:08 am
today. here in new york, starting today, people who are in the country illegally will be able to apply for driver's license. ainsley: those aren't the only two states. put up a map and show you how many states there are that do allow illegal immigrants to get their drivers licenses. look at that it's california, colorado, connecticut, delaware, maryland, new mexico, new york, nevada, utah, vermont, vawghwashington and washington, d.c. brian: do you think it's better registered and address and involved in an accident, the person that hit you is illegal is not documented you are never going to be able to file an insurance claim or you might have some trouble. now you know where to go and where to find them. maybe some illegal immigrants say i'm not sure if i want to go to motor vehicle and give my address maybe this could come back to haunt me because did i come here illegally or overstayed my visa breaking the law. steve: let's see what happens. you know, apparently in new jersey there are going to be two different classifications. one would let -- interest is
4:09 am
now the federally complaints real i.d. that allows you to get on an airplane. that's one kind of i.d. would go ahead and issue. the other kind would be strictly for people who are in the country illegally who apply for a driver's license so that they can use it in the state of new jersey to not only operate a motor vehicle but also to get insurance. what do you think? do you think this is a good idea? it clearly is a trend. have you got new jersey today. you have new york passed it last week where illegals are able to drive their cars with the license is a good idea? bad idea? tell us about that on facebook. ainsley: i recently had to renew my driver's license. normally in new york apply online. brian: so hard. ainsley: because we need the real i.d. i will get it. y'all have to have it. everyone across the country will have to have it in order to get on an airplane. i waited two hours.

him. they wake up every morning hating him. then he tweets that reminds him he is still president. they hate him even more. but that, i think what's happening is and look at the british election. what is happening is left wing democrats are very happy attacking donald trump. independents and republicans think it's a total waste of time and losing ground. just switching parties because they are losing ground not gaining ground. brian: following the candidates around vying for the presidency. they don't want to talk about impeachment. even nancy pelosi at her events why town hall why is everyone talking about impeachment. let's move on and talk about other things? republicans are trying to spend money in these districts to make people focus on impeachment and democrats bringing it don't want to talk about it. make sense of that.

that no longer will u.s. tax money subsidize anti-semitism and racism on college campuses. most americans don't know how bad things are gotten on many campuses where jewish students face harassment, intimidation, discrimination. and the president said enough is enough. so he signed this executive order that does two things. first of all, it applies title 6 civil rights protection to jewish students and adopts very important standard definition of what anti-semitism is. significantly also includes anti-zionism and anti-israel activity defined as anti-semitism. steve: what you say we are seeing this more now, elan, because of the internet? we have had guests on in the past who say this festers on the internet and then we see it bubble up on campus. >> there's no question the internet is one of the chief vectors of this disease. it comes from three sources. there's the radical left israel haters.

5:02 am
president as you know is called perfect. part iv lays out the case for obstruction of congress accusing the executive branch at the behalf of the president, while preventing congress from doing its duty. that is the majority opinion over on the committee but the gop response, or the minority response on the committee quite sharp, this is part of it. some of these arguments are just holdovers from an earlier attempt by the majority to weaponize the russian collusion investigation for political gain they also add this. the majority's actions were " unprecedented, unjust it friday able and will only dilute the significance of the dire recourse" that is impeachment and in other words this will happen again and again and again , if the house is in opposition of the white house, or at least that's the suggestion. the president, meanwhile warning democrats, so the trump leaning distributions, congressional do nothing democrats, people that
5:03 am
voted for people are literally screaming in their faces, crazy nancy is finding defending shift it schiff, harder than they shut , hashtag, 2020 election and you may have seen this on twitter over the weekend there was a tweet or two out there with adam schiff sort of being confronted by folks in his community that could be part of the reference that the president is making there. now, we do expect to see him at a business roundtable talking about reedlings and that should happen some time this afternoon and maybe he will talk about impeachment and if he does of course i'll be here for you but for now guys back to you. >> brian: one of the things that stands out is why was devon nunes able to find out about the problems with fisa two years ago because of it and adam schiff said yesterday, this is the first time i'm finding out there were any problems but still the republicans were making stuff up there is much more to play on that side but let's bring in bret baier, fox news' chief

5:05 am
impeached president clinton, and so it's a big moment but at the same time it's a foregone conclusion that we know sort of how this script is going to go. ainsley: speaking of moments why isn't america talking about the moments that happened last week all the presidents accomplishments so it was a week of wins they say. this is some of the things that happened last week, brett. government shutdown set to be averted, spending package to include money for the border wall, passage of the national defense bill, anti-semitism executive order phase i of the china deal, usmca moving forward and senate confirming 50th federal appeals court judge. no one is talking about that though are they? >> no it was one of his best legislative weeks and it's hard to believe. it's the week that the house judiciary committee moves impeachment. usmca probably scheduled after a senate trial in the senate, but it looks like a final vote this week. the ndaa, the national defense authorization act pretty much everything that they wanted including the ability to transfer money to the border wall, that's a big deal.
5:06 am
family leave is in this. the space force is in this. the spending bills, it looks like they are going to get a deal to avert a government shutdown and actually fund government through september of 2020. that's a huge deal. some things have to still happen there's hurdles they have to go through but it looks like this week is lining up to do that. >> steve: sure and what about the democrats in the trump district, that trump won back in 2016. jeff van drew, a democrat from the great state of new jersey sounds like he's going to become a republican. don't know if it's before or after the vote but how much pressure is on these democrats? from outside groups i know they start running tv commercials and there's going to be a lot of phone calls, what do they do? >> there's a lot of pressure on them. 31 democrats from districts that donald trump won in 2016. remember, they won in 2018, and so some of the thought was that
5:07 am
they could keep these districts going the other way, away from the president. if you look at the polls in some of these swing states it's really upside down when it comes to impeachment, and so you have people like representative slot kin who made the decision over the weekend to vote for impeachment. she's holding a town hall to explain that. i think you're going to have a lot of that explanation of how the votes going to go down. anywhere from between 5-10 democrats likely to say no to impeachment, i think that it's more than that. it gets pretty hairy for nancy pelosi. >> brian: it's already unprecedented with no republican support and buy-in from the other side but brett, let's talk about chris wallace's devastating interview with james comey and the reason why it was is because he was smart enough to tape your interview from 201h horowitz's facts. let's watch. >> my recollection was it was part of a broader mosaic of facts that were laid before the fisa judge to obtain a fisa
5:08 am
warrant. >> we concluded that the steele reporting put an essential role in the decision to seek a phase a order. >> brian: he says the steele dossier was not bunked and did not play a major role. horowitz said without it basically they don't get it and he did not seem to see the difference in their statements. >> i was surprised by some of those answers actually after all that we've seen that all that has come out and the report. it's out saying that they were mistakes, and that there was no reason to look for anything else saying that the dossier, he wasn't sure it wasn't true, after all that we know and everything the ig has said, and i think that chris did a great job pressing him on various issues that really pinned him to the wall. he has answers that he says he doesn't remember, but he was in charge at that time. >> steve: he was and here is a little snip-it where he's talking about the importance of the steele dossier and how the fbi relied on it, or did they?
5:09 am
>> did you know that in fact the steele report was the key for probable cause? did you know that the fbi had talked to the russian contact? >> first again the report will speak for itself. i don't believe the fbi concluded that steele's reporting was bunk after talking to a sub-source but no as the director you're not kept informed on the details of an investigation, so no, in general i didn't know what they'd learned from the sub-source. i didn't know the particulars. >> steve: what he kept trying to go back to it was just sloppiness. forget about negotiationly benjamin netanyahu, it was just a little sloppy. he signed three or four, of the fisa applications to investigate carter page. this was the biggest investigation you could conceive of because it's the president-elect. it's soon to be president. and by the time that they continue to investigate him, he's now in office. if you can't get a bigger investigation than that, i don't
5:10 am
know what it is, so the fact that the director doesn't know, doesn't really seem to wash. ainsley: chris wallace, you sound like your a bystander. this is a major investigation. you were the director of the fbi >> yeah, and i think just by the interview itself has laid out a number of different points and then the interview with adam schiff i think was telling too brian what you referenced before his report countering the memo was very definitive picked up by all of the media like this is the answer and devon nunes is a conspiracy theorist and basically, schiff was wrong and devon nunes was right according to the ig. >> brian: but he went out of his way two years ago to say i didn't know and now he knows so i think devon nunes should be relentless in demanding the clarification on that. brett i can not wait a couple weeks we'll have a chance. you'll allow me to join your panel, for a very special event. january 18, coming up next year,
5:11 am
at the ritz carlton resort in naples, florida. it's the all-star panel event and the pickets are still available for a great cause. could you talk about it? >> yeah, children's national is obviously where my son had his open heart surgeries but they do amazing stuff around the world for pediatric research and we're lucky to have it. we do something every year. this is what has become a panel event down in naples, florida, january 18, all-star panel event is where you can get tickets and it's the panel. it's a lot of fun talking about what we cover every day, taking questions, and a lot of items that you can bid on that you can't get any place else. >> steve: like? >> to come see you including meeting all of you on the curvy couch. ainsley: that's going to be awesome. >> steve: and then we go off to lunch. how hard was this to book people , guests for the panel? it's in the middle of january, where it's going to be snowing up here and you're inviting people to go to naples, florida? hello? >> tough sell.

violating nfl rules and the video crew said they were making a document documentary about a scout, fox nfl sunday got a video, as a security guard confronted them. watch the interaction, listen to the interaction. >> and this is a piece you're filming on your advance scout? >> yeah, yeah, come on, guys. i don't see the advance scout in this footage. >> no, it's not. we were trying to get a different perspective. that's my bad. why were you thinking to take that? >> i didn't know. i didn't know, but i can delete this. >> the damage is done my friend >> steve: the boston globe reports the patriots suspended the pro us doer involved but the big question is do the patriots know they were involved, i think former new york giant super star , and they need him as he just said today, it's true, we wouldn't have gotten suspended and he played the whole season, former nfl player is here and former new york jets player,
5:26 am
michael start with you. when you looked at that video, did you say to yourself, i could see how this video helps my team >> well, no, because honestly, i don't do that kind of research and that kind of deep dive into data but i know it's possible to do that, and honestly, the patriots culture is by any means necessary, and that's what gives me, you know, it kind of taints the game a bit, as you look into this, i don't think it was just an accident oops. >> brian: you're shaking your head? >> well i think a lot of people in the nfl, as players we did this. a foul is only a foul if the ref blows the whistle. there's outright cheating right? filming another team in advance of a game is considered cheating now what were they getting? what information were they looking for? we really have no idea but what we do know is that the patriots got hit with this in 2,007, bell

achick got a $5,500 fine, and patriots were issued with a $250,000 fine and fast forward and think of all of the things surrounding the nfl with domestic violence, and player confidence issues and gambling. the nfl is in a tough spot now. they have to drop the hammer. >> brian: but you have spygate and you're just fresh off-the-field. what is the reputation? how do the players feel when they see this? >> there was a couple things i know the league will protect 100 %, player safety and integrity of the game and this distracts from both so i think it leads into something else and i believe that we always have this comparison to war over going to football is like playing in a war. it's not. so by any means necessary that does not count in the situation. you got to play by the rules and keep the integrity and make sure that you play fair. >> brian: here is what the producer said. we stopped shooting immediately when asked to do so and cooperated fully. i know had no intention to provide footage and i was never
5:28 am
asked to do so. he was doing a web series, michael. >> right, it makes sense to us, but every play, every practice play, every player is filmed 100 % of the time now, from the time they step on the field. it's all analyzed. we don't know what analysis was being done. i think the full force of whatever penalty should be exacted on because i think he's exactly right. the integrity of the game is important. >> brian: but right now we know the camera is on you. if i just turn around and start taping here, you say what are you doing and they are trying to say you're doing a web series and shooting on the field substitution patterns. >> but we don't know what they are looking for and a part of that statement missing was he said he was in the bathroom, and any time you start an explanation with "i was in the bathroom", i think -- >> [laughter] >> what happened was -- >> no, no, no. >> look, he's one of the
5:29 am
smartest coaches in nfl history if not the smartest. the man watches hundreds and hundreds of hours of film every week with all of his players. if he can get an edge he's going to find it, believe me. >> brian: guys we'll see what's going to happen. if the nfl acts it'll be quick. meanwhile next on the rundown, now battlesing for the democrats , bernie sanders and you've heard president trump making this about christmas. president trump: under the trump adminitration, you'll be saying "merry christmas" again. we are going to say merry christmas again. >> brian: our next guest says it's important to america, we keep saying merry christmas. the star of free speech film joins us, next. >> ♪ ♪

5:34 am
matter? >> because this country, and i'm saying this as a religious jew. i want to make this clear this country is founded on judao- christian principles. god is the source of our rights, it's in the declaration of independence. in god we trust is one of the mottos of this country. i know that specular intellectuals think that god is irrelevant to morality and meaning and human rights, god is irrelevant to freedom but the founders and americans about the 1970s all thought that, nearly all let's put it that way. i am deeply worried about the radical specular america and the obvious arena, most obvious perhaps, is changing christmas into holiday. kids no longer have christmas vacation. holiday vacation. companies no longer have christmas parties, holiday parties, and of course, it's happy holidays not merry christmas. i would like to know why it's

not inclusive. i'm a jew. christmas is not my religious holiday. it's my nations holiday, a national holiday. why am i excluded if you invite me to a christmas party? what is not inclusive about that ainsley: the president, he agrees with you. listen to this. >> and by the way, under the trump adminitration, you'll be saying merry christmas again. we are going to say merry christmas again. i said we'll be saying christmas again. they don't use the word christmas because it's not politically correct. you go department stores and they'll say happy new year, or they will say other things. well guess what? we're saying merry christmas again! >> [applause] >> steve: that's kind of changed over the last year or two. i'm seeing more people say merry christmas in the stores and what not. >> yeah, i think that's true, and i think people had, i always say, if somebody says to me happy holidays i say back to

them merry christmas, and then, they feel free to say merry christmas. that's what most americans would like to say. it is a national holiday after all. >> brian: let's talk about what the president did last week , the executive order on fighting anti-semitism. you say it's a game changer on college campuses and he hopes so do you think so? >> well, what it does, at the very least, is brings attention to a fact that jews and non-jews need to be aware of. the left taking over of college campuses has increased anti-semitism to unprecedented, to an unprecedented degree in american history. colleges have been a place for jews to feel free, and everybody else to feel free. the left were not liberals, the left, wherever they go, they introduce hate. this is the the great of our time. they always yell hate, hate, hate, but there are no haters
5:37 am
like the left and it includes israel, not criticism of israel. no one objects to criticism of israel. the french parliament last week, france passed a law that anti- zionism is anti-semitism. austria just passed the same law because they all know that there is no difference. you can't say oh, i love jews but the jewish state deserves to die. please. well it's like saying i love italians but i think italy should be destroyed. >> brian: in the last year according to the anti-defamation league, 201 anti-semetic reported incidents on american colleges campuses, and universities, and with the executive order, dennis, its made very clear the president says essentially to universities if you allow this to happen we'll cut your funding. >> right. well, the president just to use

a macro point right now, make a macro point the president is the greatest friend jews have had since harry truman, and the left calls him an anti-semitism. the most hysterical writer in the united states published anywhere called the president that. it is like stallin calling trofs ky a fascist. >> brian: it's one thing that you're safe to glaze over so let's talk about states. >> you don't have to read him. all you need is to, okay, go ahead. >> brian: let's talk about no safe spaces. it reached the 1 million mark at the box offices over the weekend and the number one political documentary of the year. you've done many projects and you have many things that have moved the needle. this one has really got people talking. >> well, as i say with absolute sincerity, it is a great film and it is not great because i'm

organizations, and in my column, i say that, you know, bill barr talked about possible prosecutions for the fbi. now i don't think the media should be prosecuted but they made a lot of mistakes in getting the russia story wrong. they've overstated a lot of things about the ukraine phone calls. >> steve: why is that? >> well because their sources are the same people, the fbi and the cia, who are sending out these false charges through the media. they're using the media as their errand boys for these attacks on the president, and what i call on is for the media to basically acknowledge that it has made these mistakes, that its stories were wrong, and that it too needs to examine its behavior. >> steve: right and michael over the last three years, we've seen a number of blockbuster stories, regarding donald trump and how he's broken all the rules, and then you find out, you know, in the pages of really big newspapers and a couple of weeks later it's like that was
5:49 am
just essentially creative spin that was put out ahead of a story coming out to make the subject of the story look more positive, but you never see a correction. >> right because and most of these are based on anonymous sources. >> steve: people would have an axe to grind. >> that's right and one thing i think the media should do is when an anonymous source gives you bad information, and you publish it, and then you should run a correction but you should also out this source. you should name the source, because to me the confidentiality is based on them telling you a truth they couldn't tell you publicly or you couldn't get anywhere else. when they have mislead you, when they've given you bad information i think that contract is broken, and you should name them. i think that would cut down on a lot of this anonymous sourcing just using the media, to air their grievances and to push a private agenda. >> steve: there you go. you said it all. read all about it in the pages
