the museum tweeting, quote: we have got to respect their wishes. #megxit. >> see them in the shadows? >> that is the talk every of the day, isn't it. jillian: yes it is. have a good day. ♪ ♪ ♪ dance the night away ♪ ainsley: we are going to be dancing the night away. it's friday y'all. you can dance on the tables don't, brian. brian: again? i did it thursday? the thing about va van halen that was challenging. the ear wrath disco they roll out this song as a rock band you wonder is this dance music or rosenbacher music. ainsley: what are you supposed to do with this song? brian: i still don't know. if you see a member of the vavan halen family even if it's eddie, ask him do we dance or disco?
3:01 am
steve: we will never see them. to answer your question, disco is always easier to dance. ainsley: why do you say even if it's eddie? ask any of them even if it's eddie. brian: i read the book about as you know the new lead singer sammy hagar and his book and to him it looks like eddie was not as coherent as many other rock and roll stars at that time. ainsley: got it. steve: who knew we were going to start our show like that. thank you very much for joining us. we have some breaking news and a fox news alert. the country of iraq is now demanding that the united states come up with a plan to get our troops out of their country after that iranian missile attack. ainsley: i know. we now know that one of the rockets accidentally shot down that ukrainian passenger plane. brian: but who is speaking for iraq? the place holder whose prime minister, the she a, the sunnies, or the sunnies and kurds that didn't even show up for saturday's vote?
3:02 am
rick leventhal is live from jerusalem as the u.s. considers its next step. hey, rick. >> good morning, brian, steve, and ainsley. you probably remember on sunday, the iraqi parliament voted to expel u.s. troops from iraq after that targeted killing of iran's top general by the u.s. in iraq. and today the iraqi prime minister, we learned, spoke with the secretary of state mike pompeo and asked him for details on how that u.s. troop withdrawal would happen. we are still waiting for a response from the u.s. in the meantime, we have now learned that the french authorities are now joining the investigation of the crash of that ukrainian jetliner in iran earlier this week with iran denying reports that it shot down the jet by mistake. the "new york times" has obtained video apparently showing the moment the boeing 737 was hit by iranian surface-to-air missile shortly after takeoff from tehran's international airport. all 176 passengers and crew on board were killed in the crash. u.s., british, and canadian
3:03 am
officials all say it's highly likely the plane was hit by a russian-made sa-15 missiles. pieces of one were reportedly found near the crash site. iranians reportedly fired two of these missiles at the jet possibly mistaking it for a u.s. military plane since iran was on high alert for retaliation just hours after law firming a dozen ballistic missiles in u.s. positions in iraq. despite apparent evidence, iran continued denying shooting down the plane at a news conference this morning. >> what we can say with absolute certainty no missile had hit the plane. as i said last night the train had traveled while on fire for more than one and a half minutes and the crash site shows that the pilot had decided to return to the airport. >> the iranians say if the u.s. and intelligence officials have evidence showing that iranian missiles took down that jet, they should share that evidence with the world. steve, ainsley, brian?
3:04 am
steve: exactly. rick, do we have any information why the country of iran would be letting jet liners taking off on revenge rocket day? >> it seems to be a poor decision. steve: yeah. >> as far as we know normal air traffic at tehran international. again they were on alert for possible incoming and u.s. officials say it looks like this was a tragic mistake. they thought it might have been a u.s. military plane and not a passenger plane and somebody hit the wrong button. steve: they thought they were killing americans rather than a bunch of canadians and ukrainians and iranians? >> according to u.s. officials and other intelligence agencies, yeah. steve: what a story. rick, thank you. ainsley: justin trudeau was speaking yesterday from canada about the 63 people that died in the plane crash that were his citizens. he said his allies, his own intelligence proves that this plane was shot down by a surface-to-air missile at the coast.
3:05 am
steve: or maybe two missiles. ainsley: maybe two from iran. if you read the "new york post" there are so many stories in here about victims on the plane. one girl called her husband and he list in canada and she said i really don't feel good about this. is it safe to get on the plane when we are back and forth -- when americans are back and forth with iran. her husband said everything is going to be fine. brian: remember that ukrainian jet liner shot down over that war zone by russia, which we still never got to the bottom of, which they still deny. ainsley: another couple had just gotten married they were on the plane. brian: meanwhile mayor pete didn't was any time making this political and turning blame on the president. innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit-for-tat. really? my shouts are with the families and loved ones with all 176 souls lost aboard this flight. jackie in california plane crash in tehran reveal likely caused by iran
3:06 am
missile strike is collateral damage from president trump's strike taken out the iran general soleimani. really looking at the president and our action from a guy that has been killing our guys for 25 years? that, to me, i thought was a bridge too far. i guess not. ainsley: the president yesterday in the rally he reminded all of us if you see a service member that has a limb missing, it's a good chance that it happened under this guy's watch. i took him out. it's not tit-for-tat. this was a terrorist that wanted to kill americans. steve: right. they are blaming the president of the united states for 176 dead people. it's not the president. iran turned the surface-to-air missile battery on and it killed all those people. meanwhile, the president talked extensively yesterday about taking out soleimani. we also heard that apparently soleimani had his eye on a bunch of embassies of the united states throughout the region. here is some of what he said last night in toledo at the
3:07 am
huntington center. here's the president. >> soleimani was actively planning new attacks. and was looking very seriously at our embassies. the radical left democrats have expressed outrage over the termination. all trying to say how dare you take him out that way. you should get permission from congress. schiff is a big leaker. so he will say, you know, off-the-record, i have got hurry up because everyone is watching me in the hallway on my cell phone. off the record they have got the number one terrorist in the world, soleimani. and they are going to get him. they are going to take him out. in the next 10 minutes. please don't tell anybody i told you. steve: then he went on to say that in that story that he said that oh, darn it, we just missed him. soleimani disappeared. so he was making a case that they had to act right then. he didn't have time to contact nancy pelosi. he also said that he hoped
3:08 am
that joe biden is the nominee so that during the debates he can mention where's hunter nine times per debate? brian: yesterday, i was lucky enough to speak to major bartlett whose bodies forever thanks and his friends have been killed in iraq thanks to the efps which he helped engineer and which he missioned factories to make that killed so many of our guys. and every day he thought about this guy. after his beth, he said this is a moment to celebrate for what he has done. not only what he was about to do which everyone is focused on. what he has done in the past and he came back to do more. does anyone believe that ridiculous story that he had a note from the saudis about reconciliation with the grand ayatollah. please don't tell me you bought that. steve: mr. soleimani. ainsley: yesterday they voted along party lines. a few defectors to approve the war powers resolution that limits the president's power to go against iran again. brian mast. he is a republican from
3:09 am
florida. he had an amazing speech on the house floor yesterday. steve: right. ainsley: we want to play a portion of that. steve: just keep in mind he is standing there in the well of the house on two prosthetic legs. he lost his legs in afghanistan. he made it clear how he was going to vote. ainsley: actually i think our viewers should hear of the whole thing. play the whole thing. steve: excellent idea. >> make no mistake madam speaker. this resolution is about the killing of soleimani he was a terrorist no different than baghdadi. is a carry, bin laden and head of a terrorist organization no. different than isis or i'll died. al qaeda. he is responsible. i know most of us haven't seen or heard or smelled that kind of death. let me tell you about it. burned inside of their humvees. lungs scorched by the flames of the explosions. the vehicle fragments were blown into their skulls. some of them were paralyzed. some of them had their arms
3:10 am
and legs blown off. some of them will never see again. some of them will never be recognized again by those who knew them previously. each and every one of them, they are the credible explanation for deleting this terrorist target from our world. and no doubt, it is dangerous to take out a terrorist target. but a coward is somebody who lacks the courage to endure danger. and this is the fundamental difference in voting yes or no here. if you vote no, you understand that we would be justified to kill 100 soleimanis for just one of our heroes that have been killed by him. and the danger would be worth it. for those who vote yes, they see that he has killed hundreds of our service members but can still not find the justification to kill him because, unlike our fallen heroes, they lack the courage to endure danger. brian: that's brian mast, talking about what he saw, what he lived. and how much more dangerous
3:11 am
the insurgency in iraq was because of the man we took out, the president decided to take out when he landed in a baghdad airport with two other terror leaders. brian mast knows it. for the people there and thought about it, they tactically planned against him. general mcchrystal wrote about it. general petraeus talked about it. now you have somebody who lived it talking about how much better the world is without him. yet, you have a guy like chris matthews comparing his death in iran to somebody like elvis or princess diana. are you kidding me? steve: well, that's just the state of cable news these days. we do have that man who made that amazing speech. brian mast will be joining us less than an hour from right now. keep in mind, you know, the fact that they passed the resolution out of the house, it's not going anywhere in the senate. just simply trying to do something to the president, damage him politically. nancy pelosi we got a flashback for you. keep in mind, barack obama ordered strikes on half a different countries.
3:12 am
no congressional authorization. he ordered over 500 drone strikes that killed thousands of people, including hundreds of citizens. and, yet, nancy pelosi said regarding then president obama did he need authorization to use force in libya? watch this. >> madam leader, you are saying that the president did not need authorization initially and still does not need any authorization from congress on libya? >> yes. >> thank you. >> thank you all very much. brian: fully support what president obama did. ainsley: it's all politics. ainsley: he relied on intelligence services to take out terrorists. this isn't japan and germany against allied forces. if that was to happen, every president from here to the future would ask for congressional votes. the last time we had a war was against a country and president bush did this. asked the senate for approval and he got 70 votes. he asked the u.n. for the go ahead and the security council said go ahead. there is nothing illegal
3:13 am
about it. ainsley: the president said we know this guy is going to blow up embassies and kill more americans and we're saving hundreds of lives? what should i have done? called up nancy pelosi and says do i have permission? he said then she would have gone to the fake news and he pointed to all the cameras back there at his rally last night in ohio. all you have you fake news because there is a lot of corruption back there. he said she would call you and you would leak it and then our plan would blow up. steve: if you are watching the fox news channel yesterday and by the way we like to hear your comments if you were watching the neil cavuto show yesterday they had jeh johnson on former department of homeland security secretary and he said. ainsley: under obama. steve: under president obama. very important point. under the office of legal counsel, the president had the constitutional authority to engage without congress' say and yet nancy pelosi and democrats took the vote yesterday. now they hand it to mitch. it's not going anywhere. ainsley: nancy says we deserve the respect from this administration. brian: it was a nonbinding
3:14 am
vote that no one should care about. jillian mele how are you? jillian: i'm great. how are you. it is friday. happy friday everyone. we have stories to get. to say let's begin here. quote, he killed my leader and i have to kill him. a florida man charged with threatening president trump heads to court today. chancey lump made the comments on a facebook livestream. lump claiming he wanted to avenge the death of iran's military leaderboard qassem soleimani. lump is a security guard. he says it was all a joke. will suspects are detained in the u.s. months after a mormon family was murdered in mexico. the victim's relatives did not specify where they were caught or what role they played in the november ambush. nine women and children with dual american and mexican citizenship were attacked by a drug cartel while driving in a caravan through northern mexico. more than 40 suspects have been identified so far. the army will consider reinstating special forces status to a soldier charged with murder and pardon by president trump.
3:15 am
army major matthew golsteyn was denied his request in december. "the washington post" now reporting an administrative panel will reconsider. golsteyn was pardoned by trump for the 2010 killing of a suspected taliban bomb maker in afghanistan. and president trump slams the democrats' impeachment push at his packed ohio rally. >> by the way, did you see i did nothing wrong. they don't even know what the hell is going on. in fact, it's so weak, she doesn't want to put in the articles it's so weak. they are so pathetic. jillian: it comes as senate majority leader mitch mcconnell tells republicans to expect the trial to begin next week. speaker nancy pelosi still hasn't sent the articles to the senate. and take a look at this. congressman chip roy is concerned she can't find her way. so he tweeted this video showing the walk from the house to the senate floor, which takes a minute and a half. and a lot of people have a lot to say about that video on social media. steve: that is great. thank you very much, jillian. there is also a story out
3:16 am
there yesterday that apparently nancy pelosi got the idea to hold the impeachment articles from watching john dean, the disbarred watergate lawyer over on cnn. so she is getting her cues from cable news. brian: he was so brilliant when the house went to democratic hands and first to testify. that really moved the needle. congratulations. we will see how this goes. she is even losing democrats by the hour. meanwhile straight ahead, brian terry's killer sentenced to life. killer expose the obama administration's botched gun running fast and furious operation. so, should someone in the government be held accountable. terry's uncle says absolutely. he joins us live next. ainsley: democrats love to rich. diamond and silk going to weigh in on steyer's sudden surge. ♪ all right now ♪ baby it's all right now now fast.

brian: over nine years since the murder of border patrol agent brian terry. now his family is finally seeing justice. owbeing sentenced to life in prison for pulling the trigger in the case that exposed the obama administration's fast and furious gun running operation. brian terry's uncle ralph is the spokesperson for the brian terry organization. joins us now. ralph, do you feel any better today. >> we feel better every time one of the criminals gets convicted and sentenced. there is one more to go. there are six down and the last one remains in mexico. is he in custody awaiting extradition to the united states to stand trial for brian's murder. brian: so this guy was part
3:22 am
of a rip crew and he was able to get a crew through the fast and furious program, which is ill conceived, to be kind. and ends up shooting brian in the back. >> yes. that's true. it took brian about three or four minutes to die after being shot and it's taken the government over 9 years to bring this justice on the criminal side. and we're still waiting for the seventh person. brian: you are. and we are still waiting on answers on the fast and furious program which eric holder originally said he knew nothing about. what did we find out about this fast and furious program where thousands of guns were flooded into an area in order to track and find out what drug lord is using them? >> we wouldn't have found out anything if it had not been for a whistleblower and sharyl attkisson bringing that story to the public's attention. we learned that there was a cover-up. we couldn't learn much at
3:23 am
all about the cover-up from the obama administration. after trump became president, he gave us more information in the first few months of his presidency than we had from the obama administration in years. in fact, one of the memos that was circulated that we got a copy of called the terry family pests. and they wished we would just go away. brian: who wrote that? >> i don't know to tell you the truth. it was one of the memos that was heavily redacted. that we received from president trump. brian: they under estimated your family's dedication to brian, his reputation, his name, and his legacy did nothing but service his entire life. and you guys nine years later are getting a degree of justice and you are almost home. but the true justice would be unmasking this program and finding out who the person or the people were that put it together. and when the inspector general studied this to try to find out to get to the
3:24 am
bottom of this, does it track back to eric holder. >> everything that i read says yes, it tracks back to eric holder. brian: was he candid in saying i knew nothing about it? >> that's what i understood that he told the family. in fact, brian's brother kent met with eric holder and eric told him he would try and get answers to him because he didn't know anything. brian: and he didn't. >> and he did not. brian: we did not learn anything from him? >> no, we did not. brian: i know your family is supporting the president, and the president has gotten you some answers but you still want more. thanks so much. >> you are very welcome. thank you. brian: ralph terry, a degree of justice for the death of brian terry. meanwhile, the video is awesome. americans cheered, arriving in australia to help battle those brush fires. anna kooiman is live at the command center in sydney australia, that's next. democrats love to hate the rich. why is democrat tom steyer actually climbing in two

expecting potentially even more red later this evenings. the fire commissioner telling me it's going to be another very long night here at the emergency operation center. also telling me that one of his volunteer firefighters has just been air lifted this evening to the hospital with severe burns. not sure exactly how bad this could be. the state of new south wales wildfire season just unprecedented since it started, they have lost three of their volunteer firefighters. they have died. take a look at this video that i can show you of the heart of sydney. this is a climate protest that was going on earlier this evening. thousands of people gathered there. saying the government has had a lax response to climate change. also saying the prime minister has been too slow to act this fire season. meanwhile, fire evacuees are incredible thankful for donations coming in like baby formula. particle face masks and asthma pufers. even baked cookies or cards from kids make his force which is comprised of 90%

3:34 am
president hadn't even done nothing. >> that's right. >> so how can tom steyer lead? not only that i don't even understand how he is going to get the black vote because he have to remember how he made those billions by investing in private prisons. >> that's right. >> that's going to be a no for us when it comes to tom steyer. we are going to stick with donald j. trump. ainsley: why does he resonate. you live in north carolina i live in south carolina similar constituents. why does he resonate in south carolina? he is number two now in south carolina according to the recent polls. biden and then he is two. steve: two in south carolina. we will put the poll up. and three in the state of nevada. >> it could be because is he puffing all of this money in all of these ads. >> that's right. >> don't be fooled by tom steyer. listen, he does not resonate with people like us. >> that's right. >> he don't. he don't. >> that's called the establishment poll. tom steyer, he may have bought his way onto the stage, but he would not buy his way into the white house.

supervisor and as a county commissioner. i ran as a republican and was elected as a republican. for the longest time believed fully in the republican party and its platforms and its ideals. it's kind of left me behind because i'm more of a moderate than i am a conservative. so, i'm sitting in the middle between the liberals and the conservatives. and watching what's going on. it gives you a little heart burn once in a while. at least it does me. >> we were talking about the economy a moment ago and you were saying that you didn't feel like it worked for irving. >> it doesn't work for everyone. it's -- the new jobs coming and going service jobs 18 to 20. $20,000 a year. that's hard to raise a family on that. >> okay. >> the economy has raised the boats of the wealthy. the economy has raised the boats of many corporations. take the tax funds and bought their stock back. makes it valuable for those who are still stockholders. i have to say i am one.
3:44 am
>> fair enough, sir. a former republican, now turned democrat, lamar, thank you. thank you for speakerring to us this morning. i'm going to slide over here to rob, i'm sorry what is your name and what do you do. >> rob. i owned my own business for 46 years and passed it onto the third generation my son. >> we were talking to lamar there. he didn't feel like the economy is working for everybody. how is it working for you? >> it's booming. we can't find enough people who hire. we are always searching. we use job services, start people at, you know, 12, $13 an hour. still very hard to find people to get in to stay. i think the economy is great. take a look at the stock market. take a look at my iras, it's great. everything is about the economy. that's what america deals with. and to provide the jobs that's there and the opportunities for business and all the things that go along with pro-business. that's why i really have got to hand it to president trump. he has been a business person. he ran a successful thing. i think all politicians should have been in the

[gunshots] wow, look at that he was shot and killed by another officer. no one else is seriously hurt. >> you may soon have to be old enough to drink in order to own a cell phone. a state senator in vermont propose ago new bill to ban cell phones for anyone under 21. people found violating the law could face up to a year in prison or a $1,000 fine. the lawmaker behind the bill says young people aren't ha temperature enough for cell phones claiming they distribute to distracting driving deaths. bullies and radicalization. but i don't know. i got my first cell phone when i was 16 after i got my license. i didn't want it. my parents wanted me to have it in the car for safety. steve: exactly. you would be able to volunteer for the service but not be able to own a cell phone. jillian: right.
3:48 am
steve: he knows it's not going to pass. brian: we have to address this issue. it is the plague of society. cell phones have changed everything. ainsley: what if you 234-r a restaurant and watching a 5-year-old watching a video on the cell phone. do you arrest the 5-year-old? brian: you have to. for more on this go tout janice dean on fox square. janice: i'm sorry i missed the conversation before. brian: unusual. unbelievable. what do we call it? >> passive aggressive toss us. i want to talk about severe weather. because we have the potential for tornadoes. you have good nights are from texas, flight we have the threat for tornadoes today. take a look at the maps real quick and show you the areas we are concerned about. so across portions of texas. louisiana, louisiana, mississippi. this is a wide reaching storm. not only tornadoes, but we are going to see ice and snow behind it. so this is your threat today. it's not every day you see a moderate risk but all of the areas you see in the yellow, orange, and red we are concerned for damaging winds and tornadoes. we will have tornado warnings and watches today. just be aware of that behind it it's going to be cold

iraq what's left of their government demanding the u.s. come up with a plan to withdraw american troops. really? days after the iranian missile attacks. steve: well, that's one way to do it. meanwhile, we now know that one of those missiles accidentally apparently shot down a ukrainian passenger plane with 176 people on board. ainsley: rick leventhal joins us from jerusalem as the united states considers its next step. hey, rick. >> good morning, ainsley, steve and brian. the iraqi prime minister spoke with secretary of state mike pompeo last night and asked him to send a delegation to iraq to decide how to withdrawal u.s. troops from there. this after the iraqi parliament voted to kick out u.s. troops in response to the killing of that top general, the top iranian general in iraq by u.s. forces one week ago. of course, the other big headline here is that ukrainian plane crash, the black boxes, have now been recovered. according to iranian stated tv. and multiple agencies are now investigating the crash, including the french boeing.
4:02 am
and possibly the ntsb. with apparent evidence iran shot down the ukrainian jetliner, likely by mistake. shortly after it took off from tehran international airport. the "new york times" obtained video said to show the moment the boeing 737 was hit by iranian surface-to-air missile, about two minutes after takeoff. all 176 passengers and crew on board were killed. u.s., british, and canadian officials all say it's highly likely the plane was hit by a russian i made sa 15 missile. pieces of one were reportedly found near the crash site. reports say iran fired two missiles at the jet, possibly mistaking it for a u.s. military plane since iran was on high alert for retaliation. this was just hours after iran launched more than a dozen ballistic missiles at u.s. positions in iraq. despite the mounting evidence, iranian continued its denials at a news conference this morning. >> what we can say with absolute certainty is that no missile had hit the
4:03 am
plane. as i said last night, the plane had traveled while on fire for more than 1.5 minutes and the crash site shows that the pilot had decided to return to the airport. >> the iranians are calling the claims psychological warfare and a big lie. steve, ainsley, brian. steve: that's right. all right. brian: going to find out because boeing is going to be down there and we are going to have other people investigate it and canadians are demanding access and they're not going to be in the middle of it. ainsley: justin trudeau says if you look at his country's intelligence and his ally's intelligence, it is clear that this plane was shot down by the iranians. iranians are denying that though. steve: a lot of intel to that effect. let's bring in brian mast, retired army ranger double amputee and member of the foreign affairs committee. congressman, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: it was after your impassioned speech on the floor of the house yesterday, somebody called me from d.c. and said are you watching this? and we looked at it and it
4:04 am
was amazing. and we played it in its entirety in the last hour. but, you were talking about the war powers resolution that the house did pass ultimately in response to what happened when iran shot those rockets toward iraq and tried to, you know, damage our stuff over there. regarding the shootdown of this jetliner by iran, pete buttigieg who is now running for president on the democratic side, he tweeted this out: innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit-for-tat. my thoughts are with the families and loved ones of all 176 souls lost aboard this flight. is that what that was? was that a military tit-for-tat? >> it was wasn't unnecessary. that's for sure. you know, we spoke about it, many of us, on the house floor yesterday about each service member that was killed at the hands of soleimani and how they justified his removal from
4:05 am
this earth. it was not unjustified. this is a common theme from the left. these american apologists that like to go out there and say because america did something this resulted in some other country going out there and taking some unnecessary action, some ill fated action. and it's not the americans' fault. it's the fault of those that went out there and took those actions them selves. brian: what do you think about that? for someone who serves and is still serving now just in a suit instead of camouflage, are you astounded that we are debating? we seem to have one party taking iran's side for after ththe death of a terrorist and the head of a terror organization that the previous administration labeled a terror organization? >> i couldn't be more amazed by it. i know y'all have seen it. y'all have been to the funerals, the services. you've heard and seen those cold startling cracks of the 21 gun salute. have you seen the slow and purposeful way that we fold
4:06 am
that draped flag over a casket and hand it -- kneel and hand it to the family members. we take very seriously our fallen. what this is a response to all of those that have been killed. and part of the way that we remember those that have been killed is we don't forget who killed them and we make sure that there is a reckoning and it's unfortunate that there are so many that forget about that. ainsley: congressman, i was listening to the rally of the president last night in ohio. he said oftentimes when you see one of our service members without a limb, it happened under soleimani's watch. i know that you lost both of your legs fighting four our country and you stood up on the house floor yesterday and you gave a very passionate speech about why the president does deserve to have the power to attack terrorists and kill terrorists. listen to this. we will play a little bit of what you said yesterday. >> this resolution is about the killing of soleimani. he was a terrorist and he was responsible for the deaths of our men and women. some of them were paralyzed. some of them had their arms blown off.
4:07 am
some of them had their legs blown off. if you vote no, you understand that we would be justified to kill 100 soleimanis for just one of our heroes that have been killed by him. and the danger would be worth it. ainsley: why did you want to get up and deliver that message yesterday to our lawmakers? >> because we need to be comfortable with the fact that we're justified to remove that terrorist from the battlefield. and that is exactly, literally what he was. soleimani was a terrorist, the head of a terrorist organization. he should be looked at no differently than all baghdadi or is a cary or bin laden or any other terrorist that we have removed from this world. his life's work was to kill and maim our u.s. service members. we are better for not having him in this place. steve: congressman, once upon a time, the expression was politics ends at the water's edge when it comes to america's security and things like that. everything in the town that you are working in is so unbelievably political, you know, nancy pelosi continues
4:08 am
to dangle those articles of impeachment in front of the president and in front of the senate. sounds like she is going to send them over very shortly. she did pass the war powers resolution yesterday because she wants -- she wants to make sure that this president doesn't do anything with iran again. but, back in 2011, when president obama attacked libya. she had no problem with that she had no problem with the drone strikes or anything else. little hypocritical some would say. >> but you see that is no longer true it. ends at the water's edge. whatever the president does, is he going to be wrong in doing. if he exercises diplomacy to speak to kim jong un or speak to vladimir putin, that's wrong. if he withdraws our troops out of harm's way on the border of turkey and alongside of the kurds, then he is wrong. if he goes out there and has a reckoning for this murderer of our u.s. service members he is wrong. whatever he does, the other side is going to say he was incorrect for doing that for whatever the made-up reason
4:09 am
is they will come up with. ainsley: just to prove to our viewers what steve is saying is accurate. we have a flashback of nancy pelosi saying that. this is june of 2011. listen. >> madam leader, the president did not need authorization initially and still does not need any authorization from congress on libya? >> yes. >> thank you. >> thank you all very much. ainsley: so if our president were a democrat, would they be okay with it? >> absolutely. not just with libya as nancy pelosi spoke about but also going into pakistan and any of these other strikes, these thousands of strikes that were conducted under the obama administration, not a word was said then. the president goes out and takes this murderer out who was killed our service members, maimed them in all of those ways that i spoke about on the house floor, and they are going out there and they are making excuses. they are covering for this man and somehow saying the president was wrong for doing so. that's wrong. brian: i know you are talking about how the media is handling this as well as democrats.
4:10 am
if you want to hear something really outrageous that may get you on the floor again speaking listen to chris matthews almost the way soleimani was around and the way is he being saluted in death. listen. >> when some people die, you know, you don't know what the impact is going to be. when princess diana died, for example, there was a huge emotional outpouring. these kinds -- elvis presley in our culture. it turns out that this general he killed was a beloved hero of the iranian people to the point where look at the people we have got pictures of them now, these enormous crowds coming out there. is no american emotion in this case but a hell of a lot of emotion on the other side. should our leaders know what they are doing when they kill somebody? brian: i don't know what to say. what do you think? >> what do you say to somebody that is out there celebrating this killer, this murderer, this person that as we spoke about he was the hand that went out there and put the parts of
4:11 am
these vehicles through the internals of our service members. blew off their legs. blew off their arms. went out there and did everything that he could to paralyze them, to make sure that they never return home, that their families never saw them again. what do you sty somebody that celebrates that? brian: brian, you and unless my information is wrong, you are explosive order nansz disposal technician you got hit in 2010 in afghanistan. >> you are exactly right. brian: describe what it is like when your fellow technicians get hit by a ied is bad enough obviously. what about an ef 3-6r789. >> explosively formed projectile that's a very expolice sithly made weapon copper disk surrounded by explosives travel at high rate of speed can penetrate many inches of armor because of the way that that projectile is formed with the copper disk that's been placed into it. it tears through our uparmoured vehicles in it. if there is fuel in it ignites the fuel. causes massive fires inside those vehicles. after that the fire
4:12 am
suppression systems will go off. suffocating these people so they cannot breathe. it tears off their limbs. it's a very horrific type of violent explosion that occurs beyond just a large bulk of mass explosives that may lift up a vehicle, throw it, tear some of the pieces off of it. this is going directly inside of the vehicle killing the men and women inside. brian: the guy that came up with that finally met his match. and people here are saying the president is a cowboy by doing it. it makes no sense. >> the guy who developed that ended up in a number of pieces on the side of a road next to the baghdad airport and that's exactly the way it should have ended for him. steve: all right, brian mast, serving the great state of florida and the united states. sir, thank you very much for joining us on this friday. ainsley: thanks for your service, brian. >> thank you. steve: all right. it is now 12 minutes after the top of the hour. jillian joins us right now with big story out of chicago. jillian: that's right. good morning. wild scene in the windy city
4:13 am
overnight. catching a cota after two coyoto people attacked including a six-year-old boy bit in the head. not clear if the coyote is the same one that attacked the boy outside a nature museum. in a separate incident, a man took himself to the hospital after getting bit in the back by a coyote. both will be okay. the mayor of los angeles is seeking president trump's help to address the city's homeless crisis. in a letter obtained by the "los angeles times," eric garcetti asked for federal assistance from the president and housing and yohousing andurban development y ben carson. earlier this week president trump suggested that he would seriously consider getting involved if the city asked for help. aviation giant boeing is under fire over employee emails insulting the faa. the internal messages also had joked about safety issues with the 737 max jet. the model involved in two deadly crashes. the "new york times" reports staff discussed hiding design flaws from

[laughter] this weekend. >> the 49ers play a divisional round game against the minnesota vikings tomorrow at levi stadium. brian: also too busy to take the vice president's call to talk about how our base was being bombed. she must be really busy. i believe she was at dinner by herself. steve: she is saving the country. brian: we owe her a favor because she is really doing a great job.

4:20 am
former attorney have also both been charged with conspiracy to commit murder. but the body of jennifer dulos has yet to be found. where is she? and if she is dead, can prosecutors secure a conviction without the body? joining us right now with insight, forensic pathologist and fox news contributor dr. michael baden. >> how do you do? good to see you. steve: okay. they presumed she is dead. they have a whole bunch of evidence, d.n.a. evidence of her blood. >> that's right. her blood and his blood both found in her house and in her car and on the clothing and all that was dumped in various garbage cans. so apparently the medical examiner in connecticut has already said that there was enough evidence that she was bleeding sufficiently to be a cause of death. and that he was the only person with her while she was bleeding. she was with him. not the only person but his
4:21 am
d.n.a. is there i think in this kind of situation they have enough evidence, even if they don't find the body and even if there isn't blood on that, they have an ax with some blood on it they are testing. we don't note results of it. even if that blood doesn't turn out to be hers, they have got enough evidence as shown in the indictment. steve: right. a lot of people are shocked it has taken this long because they have had that evidence for a while. now we hear that his former attorney has been charged as well. apparently his cell phone ping add tower on may 31st near the windsor rod and gun club where hunters found a hole dug into the ground. what's that about? >> that's bizarre that apparently his friend, the lawyer, dug a grave. and then they covered it up. but when the police went into that area, they found that there had been a hole dug but there was no body there. steve: okay. so we will keep people
4:22 am
posted on the dulos case. in the meantime, we also saw you on "60 minutes" talking about the jeffrey epstein case. now, the news overnight is apparently remember there was no video apparently of the cell the night in question, the first suicide attempt and then they said oh, we found it, never mind. and then yesterday we discovered that apparently the video that they say is from the wrong camera. >> there was a hold put on the video at the time that there was the questionable suicide attempt. the cell mate says he tried to commit suicide but he told lawyers, epstein, that no, he was assaulted. steve: by his roommate. >> presumably by the cell mate, yes. and then the lawyer, his lawyer, the roommate's lawyer put a hold on the videotape. they wanted to see what the video was.
4:23 am
they were supposed to have saved that video from the first incident. did anybody else come into the room? and they told the judge they didn't have it and then they said they did have it. and now it's like a terrible way to run a prison. steve: no kidding. because it was like the perfect storm. all these things, you know, the emts come in. they see the dead body. they pick him up. they don't take any pictures. they take him to the hospital. as is depicted in the "60 minutes" article. the item, why did he hang himself with a sheet when there are a bunch of sleep apnea machines with cords around. could have done it with that much quicker. >> ant the sheet, the the noose from the orange sheet that he had doesn't match the ligature mark on the neck. steve: right. you showed that usually with this kind of thing the mark is not in the centers of the neck as it is on the autopsy picture but, instead it's much higher. >> in a hanging the ligature
4:24 am
goes up under the jawbone. the mandible. here it was down lower. more like a garot the kind of thing they do on the mafia cars. tight crushing of the neck that crushes three different bones in the neck, which is extremely unusual in hanging. steve: a couple months ago you were on this show and you told us and you electrified the world by saying what you saw. and you were hired by the epstein family to supervise and review the autopsy. >> right. steve: that it looked like it was a homicide. not a suicide. and people are going, yeah. if dr. baden says that because it's so rare for this to happen there are all these other things that went wrong that night. to so many people it looks like he got whacked in jail. >> that is certainly a possibility. and the -- there should be some transparency. what did the two guards see when they went in the cell and found him dead?
4:25 am

5:01 am
steve: reports that it could have been two missiles, rick levanthal from jerusalem as the united states consider next step, are we going to be allowed to or boeing allowed to look at the wreckage? >> looks that way. first to iraqi parliament that voted to kick u.s. troops out of u.s.-targeted killing of top iranian general near airport, the iraqi prime minister asking secretary mike pompeo to send delegation to iraq to figure out how to get troops out of the country, no word if and when that will happen, iran is denying multiple reports that it intentionally shot down that ukrainian passenger plane, the black box from the jet have been recovered according to iranian state tv and multiple agencies have been invite today investigate including boeing, canadians, sweeds and ntsb.
5:02 am
all 176 passengers and crew on board were killed. u.s. british and canadian officials all say it's highly likely iran shot down ukrainian jetliner by mistake using russian made fa18, iran was on high alert of retaliation hours after launching more than a dozen ballistic missiles in iran. iran continued denial at news conference this morning. >> what we can say with absolute certainty that no missile had hit the plane, as i said last night, the plane had traveled while on fire for more than a
5:03 am
half a minute and the pilot decide today -- decided to return to the airport. >> rick, thank you very much, geraldo rivera joins us now. >> good morning, everybody. steve: can you imagine that the united states shot down a jetliner? >> it did in 1988. brian: paid a lot of money. guided missile in the gulf there, shut down iranian passenger line of 290 died including over 60 children, something that took years to look down and we did as brian suggested, tremendous compensation, you know, terrible things happen to good people, i have very little doubt that it was an iranian missile or two that took down that airliner they, i think will now be back on their heels, iranians if they thought they had the moral high ground in the current conflict,
5:04 am
i think that this is a blow to them. >> what do you say to people that are blaming our president for this? >> you know who i blame for this , ainsley, the airplane, allow the plane to take off 3 hours after a huge ballistic missiles is fired next door, the height of recklessness and irresponsibility and they should be ashamed of themselves; it's right there, ukraine air and iranian air traffic controllers, they must answer why they let the plane go into harm's way. steve: absolutely, if you're in iran, okay, we shot 22 missiles over there, let's just wait the americans will blow us up soon, they didn't turn the air missile machine off. >> they were obviously, steve on high alert. going back to civilian airport, over your shoulder ballistic missiles being fired, you're waiting for united states to strike with shock and all again
5:05 am
and what do you do, you take a vulnerable aircraft and you take off with all those innocent souls on board. ainsley: faa or leadership would say no planes. >> never happened, faa already has, ainsley, prohibition against our civilian airliners going anywhere near. ainsley: would it be someone in command that says we are not flying planes at all? >> i go back to the pilot, i flown a million funky airplanes and going to funky places, you see stuff going off, you have to make a judgment call, it's not just you and macho fighters, women, children, students and everybody with their aspirations and their hopes and families waiting for them. why don't you wait a day? iran was on super high alert, i understand what happened, i understand their denials,
5:06 am
denials fan on deaf ear, two russian-made missiles fired and just imagine and i always think and it gets me every time, there's an interval between hit and crash. you're there, you're sitting there and you know you're going down and my god, feel so bad. brian: human element, you can't turn the page, meanwhile the house yesterday decided to have a vote thanks to speaker pelosi on war power's act to condemn the president essentially for taking out one to have world's worst terrorist that outrage when he was trying to honor ied's, he joined us earlier. >> you've heard and seen the startling cracks of 21 gun salute, you see the purposesful
5:07 am
way that we fold drape flag to the casket and hand it over to family members. and what this is response to all of those who have been killed and part that we remember those who have been killed we don't forget who kill them and make sure there's a reckoning an it's unfortunate that there are so many that forget about that. we need to be comfortable with the fact that we are justified to remove that terrorist from the battlefield and that's exactly literally what he was, soleimani was a terrorist and shouldn't be looked more differently than any other terrorist. >> and, you know, jay johnson told neil cavuto, geraldo, under the office of legal counsel the president had absolutely constitutional authority to engage iran without congress' okay. >> he's absolutely right. >> right. why nancy pelosi pulled this stunt? >> because she's a politician.
5:08 am
i fervently, passionately oppose this action in iraq. brien: i had no idea. give me a second. [laughter] >> seriously, i totally believe the president was legally justified under several different doctrines to do this act, i have never in any way, shape or form maintained that he did something illegal, he was totally within his right either as an act of self-defense for the united states or even as an act of retribution and revenge against someone who does have american blood on his hands, he was clearly within legal rights, whether it was an act that makes sense, that's a different question, we can debate that and we did last week, let me say, let me go through libya, syria and president obama, remember, i was in libya almost got killed there. they took out gadhafi without
5:09 am
congressional authorization, it turned libya which was almost the client state of the united states. >> now the russians are there. >> the turks are there and they are still fighting there. steve: mess. >> it's not even a country. ainsley: hypocrisy is that nancy pelosi said the president didn't need authority. supported obama. >> that was very, very similar to what they did with soleimani. in 2013 president obama became gun shy and wanted to go after assad in syria, the whole red lines, assad used gas on his own people and chickened out at the last minute, no, i need congressional authorization, congress did not grant it to him, so president obama used that as cover not to attack assad in syria. i think that the bottom line on all of this is the president has enormous authority to wage war up until a full-blown conflict
5:10 am
without congressional authority. >> we had the whole day of nonbinding legislation that if it got through the house which it did and the senate, who is going to veto it, boom, what are we wasting our time for? >> good question, impeachment is an absolute charade, let's get this thing over with, she's holding it just because she knows that as soon as she submits it the senate will dispatch it in an expeditious manner, she's, you know, she's a wonderful politician, i have tremendous regard for the speaker of the house, she had a bad hand and impeachment without crime, she knows it's going to be acquittal, let her get it over with, it's appalling that the commander in chief in time of conflict and stress is distracted by this nothing, i conceive anything, tacky phone call, everything they say about it is truth, so what, no crime, get it behind us, let the president, the 45th out there be
5:11 am
commander in chief and do what's vital for the country. i woke up late today. [laughter] ainsley: you and brian, tell everybody that you do get along. >> you have to apologize to brian. so as soon as we got up there, we got on radio show, that's the first thing i said, i never mean anything personally, you're a dear friend. >> you punched me two or three times. >> i had to apologize to sean hannity and told him i loved him last night. >> maybe it's you.

5:27 am
mark stein. you qualify because you have accent. >> we complain that the royal family don't take enough notice of it, i think meghan -- brian you have a rule? >> when you're celebrity it's about yourself and royalty is the opposite. what she's done, for example, the queen is queen of canada and queen of australia, right now australians as we just saw are burning up, 63 canadian citizens were shout-out of the sky by the iranians the other night and heghan and harry are so toned deaf, they think it's the perfect time enough of you burning australians and canadians, let's talk about our

>> as promised we are back with fox news alert, the december job's numbers had just been released. ainsley: 145,000 jobs added last month, less than the 164,000 that the economists were predicting. brian: what does this mean for unemployment rate, 3.5%, unchanged from last month, so wasn't the boon of last month, what do you take of that number? stuart: solid, modest growth in new jobs, 145,000, pretty good, unemployment 3.5%, that's historically extremely low. the real unemployment rate, that came down. >> what does that mean? >> technical expression, it's what people refer to as the real unemployment rate when you include a lot of other people who are temporarily out of work or looking or not looking that kind of thing, that rate came down, overall, this is a modest
5:35 am
yet solid unemployment report, no problem, it's continuing the growth in jobs and the surprising thing is that this is a fully employed economy. we've got 7 million jobs available for the taking, we don't have people qualified for them, we've got people coming back into the labor force but not enough, that's why you've got 145,000 new jobs, it would have been much higher if it wasn't such a tight labor market. steve: i call that modest, when grow to corner in new york city, the stock market is on fire and we are perhaps today going to hit another milestone, 29,000, you know, 10 years ago if somebody would have said in 10 years we would have hit 29,000, they said check the guy for a fever. stuart: when donald j. trump was elected president the dow jones was at 18,000, today it may hit
5:36 am
29,000, so you have gained 11,000 points in 3 years, that's explosive. steve: never been done before. stuart: no, in that time frame, it has not. the 11,000 point runup for the stock market in the dow industrials that has added $13.8 trillion to the value of american business, that is because of the trump stock market rally which is because of the trump economic boom. brian: the world generating big news from what happened with iran and retribution with iran, next week, no one is talking about next week, we will sign phase 1 of the china deal. stuart: it has been an extraordinary week, one week last last friday we were reacting to the news that soleimani had been taken out, so to speak, at first the dow went down, within hours, it had recovered completely and start today set record after record after record, nobody was expecting this but we got
5:37 am
explosive rally despite all that was happening with iran. ainsley: you said a lot of jobs were opened but we don't have individuals to fill them, what are the jobs? >> mix match from those who we need, the skills that they have that we need and the employers who can't get people with those skills, it's a mismatch. brian: we have to find about a way to revamp immigration, not just the wall, keeping first-round draft picks coming out of stanford here. stuart: you've never seen this before, you've never seen such a fully employed economy, i've been doing this for 40 years, i've never seen anything like this in america, this is absolutely full employment, that's why it's kind of difficult to expand the number of new jobs, overall solid, decent job's report today. brian: solid and decent, that's how i describe your show.
5:38 am
stuart: really? i will take it. ainsley: no indecency. jillian: is your home security camera spying on you? >> who is that? >> i'm your best friend. i'm santa claus. jillian: well, now new security concerns over ring doorbell cameras, amazon fired employees for watching videos. the company also taking steps to limit access to user data to a smaller number of people. incredible body camera video showing the moment a police officer is hit by a train and lived, if you're not already watching this, take a look at

this. wow, you can see the officer rolling on the ground after he's clipped by the train in polk county, georgia, he was chasing a burglary suspect and didn't realize how close he was to the tracks, the officer was hurt but will recover. a teacher caught drunk behind the wheel with student in the backseat. corey malone hitting back, he blew a breathalyzer more than 3 times a limit. officials say the sign violated a city ordinance and he plans to fight. >> i just believe in ticking for what's right and i try to follow through with that and we want to be able to continue on with what
5:40 am
we are doing. >> he says he won't pay the 118-dollar fine unless the court says he has to. a look at your headlines, back to you. >> that will get people fired. >> yeah. steve: 20 minutes now before the top of the hour, janice dean at times square where it's a nice day today. >> let's talk about this first, though, we could have tornadoes across the south, severe weather including large hail damaging winds and we will see tornado watches and warnings throughout the day today, on top of that the threat for ice over parts of the midwest and the great lakes so travel is going to be difficult if not impossible for a lot of the areas, there's your severe threat today, if you live in the regions, know what to do if there's a watch or warning, the more potential for explosive storms, so this is going to be a challenging day, unfortunately i want everyone to be prepared and know what to do, go to the bottom level of your home,

5:42 am
is going? >> not very good, it's bogus, they started this 4 years ago, i call nancy 054. she's missing cards in her deck, at least one. >> the new nickname. >> 051, she's missing that card probably a lot more than one card. trump said she's not dealing with the full deck, i totally i agree with them, it's bogus, started 4 years ago, running in '16, and anything they can do to stop trump is what they are doing and not rooting for america, they need to be working on bridges, health care, opioid addiction and they're not doing it. >> certainly a lot of business we would like for them to be taking care of. you're a police officer, you were at the event last night,
5:43 am
how did you enjoy the event? >> i thought it was amazing, the turnout was incredible and his support for law enforcement is just phenomenal. >> now that's different, you think it's a different support than from the previous administration? >> it's a shift in attitude t previous administration didn't seem to have our backs and it's a total 180 with president trump. >> you feel like he's there 100%? >> i do, he's totally my president. >> you support a lot of his policies if not all of them? >> i do, indeed. >> you don't agree what he says 100%, the way he puts things if you will? >> i don't think he's the most eloquent speaker at times, that shows he's human and i think he talks like most of america it's what resinates with most of america. >> outstanding. kathy and david, you guys are, you guys are business owners and still married to each other, how has the economy been in the last
5:44 am
3 years? >> in the last 3 years investments have almost doubled, our businesses had the best year we ever had, so we are real pleased with trump and his actions and his deregulation of small business items, you know. >> you think the deregulation has the best effect and not so much the tax cuts or a combination of both? >> a combination of both and tax cuts are great and i can't believe that the democrats want to take away the tax cuts that he did. >> all right, well there you have it, we have a range of views here at -- at uncle john's pancake house, we also got a lot of food here, if you guys are hungry, you're welcome to join us, we need your help. steve: could be little chilly by the time it gets to new york city but you're right. ainsley: we will get on brian's
