into that trap. a team of nine former u.s. and canadian service members will be out here in about 45 minutes. >> ainsley: there they are. >> brian: they have set world records guys. they have sky dived for seven straight days in seven continents all for folds of honor. >> steve: that's great. >> brian: the millions they have raised and want to raise more by telling our story. they already fought for our country, they retired and never stopped giving back. and they started in ant art ca. >> ainsley: ant art ca chili united states uae australia then another celebration jump a few days ago down in tampa. but they are some of our strongest, our best. they keep us all safe and their goal is to raise $7 million for folds and that will provide 1400 scholarships. so if you have to donate even five bucks, go to >> brian: there's the most people wouldn't do, jumping out of a plane. >> steve: out of a perfectly good plane. >> ainsley: doing a flip in the air. >> brian: unless the landing gear's out i don't see a reason. >> ainsley: just looking at
5:03 am
that, kind of scary. >> brian: i know. >> steve: first step is a doozy. >> brian: they flew from continent to continent in coach. they hopped on coach planes don't want to waste ritzy airlines. >> ainsley: i hope they don't have to sit in the middle seat. . >> steve: all the pains are full. >> ainsley: these are big guys hopefully someone in first class realize what they do they fight for a country and switched with them. >> brian: then which one goes all nine? that would be first class. >> steve: who had it last time. >> brian: meet them in 45 minutes. >> steve: it is nice when they say we'll pre board anybody in the military you get on first. we love that. >> ainsley: yeah i >> steve: you'll see them in about 45 minutes. >> brian: though also announce if you have a llama with you, some of the crazy animals. >> ainsley: right, if you have a pony. >> brian: yeah, you can get on first. >> ainsley: bring it. >> brian: bring the leopard keep him in a page. >> steve: last week somebody said this snake is my support animal. they said it is -- i use it for
5:04 am
anxious moments. >> brian: too easy to get a support animal. >> ainsley: i could sit next to the person with a snake but if you got on and you said i have a cockroach then i'm not sitting next to you. >> steve: snake on a plane they made a movie about that. >> brian: right. listen they have to make it tougher to prove you need a support animal. everybody's like i'm taking my german shepherd i don't want to leave home without it. what's your reason? i don't have a sitter. >> steve: some people need them. >> brian: right. i want to make sure people that need them -- because there's way too many animals. >> steve: there are a lot. >> ainsley: all these animals on your plane. >> brian: nonstop. there's animals everywhere. >> steve: well, i flew some place not long ago and the person next to me said do you mind if we put the dalmatian right there and i said okay. >> ainsley: what choice do did you have? you can't get mad at them. they probably watch your show. >> steve: and i googled, can you have a dog on this plane and it said you have to keep it in the carrier under the seat. and it was like a pony.
5:05 am
>> brian: dalmatians are big. by the way collies and dalmatians were hot dogs for a while. >> ainsley: remember when i saw you at the airport you were at the gate and i was boarding a flight and you happened to be at the same gate. i would have loved it if i had seen you with rocky and apollo, these dogs are massive huge massive white dogs. what type of dogs. >> brian: great piornese. >> steve: as for dalmatians their history is spotty. i'll be here all week. oh, yeah, today's my last day for the week. down in washington, dc they are having the march for life for 50 years. today for the first time people instead of marching toward the supreme court, they're going to go to the capitol because last year, of course the supreme court changed how abortion works in this country. >> brian: i haven't heard. really? >> ainsley: it is >> steve: it is now up to the states.
5:06 am
in the meantime people pressing lawmakers particularly house republicans to pass legislation restricting how early in pregnancy people can get an abortion that is the goal for the annual march for life in dc. >> ainsley: and the supreme court into that investigation of that leaker is now over and failed to identify who leaked the draft decision last summer. 82 people with access to the information, 97 employees were interviewed, and they determined an outside breach was highly unlikely. >> brian: wow. okay. so you've pretty much got this insulated community, only a finite amount of people and looks like they're happy with not knowing who it is. mollie hemingway doesn't feel the same way. listen. >> this didn't seem like a really serious effort to find out what had happened and it should have been a serious effort. this leak led to an assassination attempt on a sitting u.s. supreme court justice, also led to security problems for all of the justices who voted or who ruled in dobbs. this is such an important issue
5:07 am
to get right and justice, chief justice roberts did not seem to take it very seriously. very lax investigation. the marshall of the supreme court didn't seem to have the skills required, an outside firm was consulted, but not anything near the level of what should have happened if you really wanted to determine conclusively who did this. >> steve:. >> steve: so people are scratching their head. you know what? it could have been one of the actual justices because the report did not indicate clearly whether the justices 'em this selves or others close to them were questioned. some of the people were interrogated and some were questioned more than once which is curious. some said i didn't tell politico but i did tell my wife or i did tell my spouse or i did tell my partner, which is in violation of the rules. going forward now with the suggestion is they do need a law to prohibit the disclosure of non-public cases at the supreme court related to the
5:08 am
information. if you release it ideas, that should be against the law. right now it apparently is not. >> brian: yeah. which is insane. >> ainsley: which is surprising. >> brian: you would think -- one of the theories is, put it out, the put the draft out there see the backlash and see the pressure before it's formalized. maybe the supreme court justice alito will back off and realize we have to get a compromise because the country will go a flame. >> steve: he wrote the opinion. >> brian: yeah, he wrote the opinion and it leaked out. it didn't happen that way and the threats were a plenty and when it was finally put into play, the results, you could say that swung an election maybe kept the senate in democrats hands. >> ainsley: i want to know if they want to know who leaked it. it could be a liberal justice that might have wanted it to get out there to change the votes. it could have been a conservative who wants the votes to stick. >> steve: it could have been a justice's family. >> ainsley: it could have been one of their aides or clerks.
5:09 am
do you think they know or do they probably relax on the investigation because they don't want to know. >> steve: it could be a little of both. mollie detailed, you know, aptly that because of this leak there was an assassination attempt on bret kavanaugh. >> ainsley: right. very serious. >> steve: plus also don't forget the anti-abortion centers that were attacked and fire bombed and now the fbi has announced apparently a $25,000 reward for more information about who did that. keep in mind, hundreds of people work at those clinics. they were in peril because of this leak. and for them not to, you know, not to call in the fbi, it just seems insane. >> brian: why don't you? >> ainsley: you saw one, i think what was the first one out of north carolina, this is in madison wisconsin, and then there was another one in buffalo, new york. and those centers are called compass care, the one in buffalo. they have hired private
5:10 am
investigators, here's the suspect that did that one in buffalo. they hired private investigators because they said the fbi, their lack of response, so they said we're going to try to find this person on our own and then a few days later the fbi announces the, okay, we'll offer $25,000 that leads to an arrest. >> brian: let's hope so. ten minutes after the hour president biden says he has no rehis handling of classified documents at his home, by his corvette and washington office. >> ainsley: those remarks come as the secret service says it's ready to hand over names of people who visited biden's home if congress asks for the names. >> steve: peter doocy joins us from the white house with what we know this morning. good morning. >> good morning. and president biden is placing blame on all of this on whoever was in charge of his vp paperwork after leaving the naval observatory, after leaving office. he is also defending his decision not to go public with this before the midterms and he did it while he was touring
5:11 am
flood damage in california. >> i will answer the question, but here's the deal. you know, quite frankly bugged me is that we have a serious problem here. the american people don't quite understand why you don't ask me questions about that. they found a handful of documents that were failed -- that were filed in the wrong place. i have no regrets. i'm following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do. >> the wilmington house was the nerve center for biden post vice-presidency. there is this e-mail now about a meeting on hunter biden's laptop that says okay let's do 10:00 a.m. on tuesday at the lake house. i hope this gives everyone plenty of time to drive up to delaware. please let me know if this is too early. vp asked me to check with you all. thank you. we know the president had an office at u del which they referenced in that e-mail and we know that is where his senate records remain sealed, adding to bipartisan intrigue. >> whenever classified documents
5:12 am
are found somewhere they shouldn't be, it's an issue and we need to find out how the documents ended up there and is there any risk that they were exposed to people that didn't or shouldn't have had access. >> the key question, what led personal lawyers to leaf through biden's files in the first place, what were they looking for? >> i think everyone is surprised at every response we have gotten from the white house. everyone's surprised at how this whole thing has unfolded. i still don't know the answer as to why they were looking in the first place, what prompted them to go look on november 2nd? >> the president himself is doing something that his aids and officials here at the white house are not willing to do, publicly or privately, and that is express confidence that things are going to go okay with the special counsel. back to you. >> steve: and, peter, there is curiosity about why they, six days before the election, these lawyers were looking, and the washington post did a takeout yesterday and they essentially said that it was at an office
5:13 am
that he really didn't use so they were going to sack up everything and go. you mentioned the university of delaware, that's where they keep all of his senate records when he was a senator and the chairman of the foreign relations committee, he had access to all sorts of secret stuff. do we know whether or not they've looked through those? >> we don't. and this actually became an issue during the 2020 campaign when the primaries were still going on and there were some complaints dating back decades about biden as a boss and there were some folks who were trying to get in to look at basically the hr files and there were lawsuits filed. those senate records remain sealed. nobody is suggesting that there's anything in there but we do know that -- anything classified but we do know they remain sealed at the university of delaware. >> steve: they have to look. >> ainsley: peter they checked. what about president obama, because he was the vice-president. have they checked his houses? >> we have not heard anything like that, but this would be an
5:14 am
obama/biden administration file, all of it. >> steve: and we still don't know what any of these documents are regarding. they're keeping that close to the vest. >> not specifically, no. >> brian: all right we'll check in with you again. so washington post story yesterday talked about his personal attorney going over to clean out his office and they go into a big closet and looked at that and when they looked to a little closet that's when they found paperwork and it was -- >> steve: it was crammed full. >> and there was the documents. no one mentioned a lock. i felt like that would have been a great time to say in a locked closet. because i'm wondering the locked closet they went out of their way to say that originally but then yesterday, they bring up chief assistant according to reports feels personally responsible because she would have been the one that packed the stuff to put it there but it doesn't explain what was going on in the garage and the other room at his house where they find more documents. and when asked, what's the total number of documents that are actually classified? they said well we don't really know because we gave it to -- we
5:15 am
turned them over as we got them. so you didn't think to yourself, okay, here's three, here's four five. they lost track but they know how many donald trump had. >> steve: it's interesting because the initial story was about the locked closet and now you wonder was the closet locked or were they simply referring to the fact that the office had a lock on it? what we do know, and you mentioned kathy chung who was biden's long time personal assistant who no longer works for him who feels like she may have inadvertently left it in there, she had nothing to do with anything in delaware. so that is separate, which would talk more about a systemic problem with just how they were in a -- you know what? that's the end of the biden obama white house, let's just put everything in a box and we'll figure it out later. >> brian: right. >> steve: and now they're figuring it out and it's a little embarrassing. >> brian: pretty sure hunter recommended kathy chung to the president. >> ainsley: oh, gosh. >> steve: small world. >> ainsley: well, he was caught with classified documents and
5:16 am
he's not supposed to have them at his house. >> steve: nope. nobody is. >> brian: but it's no big deal. >> steve: according after the top of the hour, carley joins us right now with the very latest from houston. >> carley: yes, that's right, the details are crazy what's going on in houston texas. bar owners are begging city council leaders to do something about the repeat break-ins crushing their businesses, some owners are even sleeping in their shops with guns to protect their own property. earlier in the show, we spoke with a business owner whose store was hit twice in two days. >> it's troublesome to know that i chose the great city of houston to open my small business and this is something that we're dealing with not once, not twice, multiple times every single day across the city, city wide. any loss, though, to a small business is too much, especially in this day and age, for sure. >> carley: houston has seen over 12,000 burglaries in each of the last two fiscal years >> google apparent company

dismissed. 2019, 44%. now 69% of felonies are dismissed. misdemeanors even worse. it was, in 2019, 49% were dismissed, now 82% of felony arrests are dismissed. why? because there is a discovery law in new york, part of new bail reform. where the prosecutors must have, together, within 20 days all the evidence. for instance if there's a rape. you have to have the rain kit back within 20 days. if it goes beyond that, under these new laws, then you can no longer submit the evidence. so the cases are collapsing because the onerous discovery requirements put on the cops, they have to have all their cases together. so the arrests naturally have dropped and the results of these arrests dropping is a direct correlation, ainsley, between the fewer people being arrested and the more crimes being committed. >> ainsley: yeah, i mean it's changed all of our lives geraldo. i love this city i know you love

5:42 am
and said you pulled the trigger. he's trying to say it's an accident but he maintains i did not pull the trigger. >> yeah, that's not a good look, because he's going to be going against the fbi. the gun itself, according to the fbi, was functioning properly. that kind of a revolver would not automatically fire itself unless you dropped it on the hammer which clearly he didn't do. you actually have to pull the trigger for him to release the hammer. i think what actually happened is, i think he cocked the gun and had his finger pulling on the trigger when he cocked it so that when he let go of the hammer it automatically fired. think about the wild west days when they would hold the revovrs and just hit the pal thatter. all they were doing was holding the trigger back and nothing holds the hammer back so it just fires fires fires. inexperience with a firearm like that, that's probably what caused it to firement going publicly on television saying it wasn't my fault, it wawas somebody else's fault but not
5:43 am
mine is a really bad look. because under new mexico law, he certainly could be charged, and was, for involuntary manslaughter, and now it's up to a jury who may not like this kind of, could be viewed as arrogant approach that he's taking. >> brian: judge, let's let the audience hear him say this and have you come back with it. let's listen. >> okay. >> it wasn't in the script for the trigger to be pulled. >> well, the trigger wasn't pulled. i didn't pull the trigger. >> so you never pulled the trigger. >> no, no, no, no. i would never point a gun at somebody and pull the trigger. that's the training i have. you don't point a gun and pull the trigger >> i feel that someone is responsible for what happened, and i can't say who that is, but i know it's not me. >> brian: so, judge, ainsley pointed out it wasn't even in the script so he did something that wasn't even-on he. >> ainsley: supposed to happen. >> brian: supposed to happen. >> it was a mistake, he didn't
5:44 am
intend to kill anybody it was an accident but it's still a chargeable offenses. when you get in a car drunk you don't intend to kill anybody but if your behavior was reckless or in this case he doesn't even have to be reckless he just has to be negligent. if he says i was told by two people the gun wasn't loaded. if you trust me 100% and i hand you a gun and say i checked it the gun is safe. are you going to point the gun at your children and pull the trigger because you trust me? no. because guns are difference because that's the truth about guns and the consequences are defies stating. >> ainsley: if i were her family, she leaves behind a sonnen a husband, if i were them i would say how did that real bullet get inside a gun on a movie set? why weren't you using a fake gun and why did you pull the trigger, alec baldwin, if it doesn't say to do that in the script? >> there were a lot of mistakes if this situation.
5:45 am
obviously the armorer made a mistake. the assistant director who said the gun was safe made a mistake. and he's pled guilty and has been sentenced on a plea agreement for that. and alec baldwin made a mistake in not checking the gun. anybody who's handed a gun should open it up and check it. you don't point a gun at anybody, let alone pull the trigger, without opening it and checking to make sure it's empty. and that is going to be enough for negligence. now, it's a disyep apes whether under those circumstances they want to bring charges but i don't fault her for bringing charges and letting the jury decide was he negligent to point a gun at somebody and pull the trigger relying on the word of somebody else that it's safe and that could result in a conviction. >> ainsley: will he end up serving time? >> i'm sorry. >> ainsley: will he go to jail it was an accident we know that. will he serve time behind bars. >> people serve time all the time depending on culpableity.
5:46 am
he can do 18 months for a finding of manslaughter important if the charge requires a finding of recklessness on that he could get a gun enhancement and if he does he's looking at a minimum of five years in prison. i this what happens is alec baldwin and his lawyers will do blustering but push comes to shove he will take a plea because it's insane to take that kind of risk. >> brian: he has a point of view. we'll see. judge thanks so much. no winners here. >> no, absolutely not. >> brian: let's check in with senior meteorologist janice dean >> janice: good morning beautiful day in new york city. i have friends with me. what's your name. >> sarah. >> todd. >> where are you from. >> dayton ohio >> janice: what are you doing here. >> visiting. >> work and visiting >> janice: are you having fun. >> yes, it's great >> janice: let's do the weather forecast and then you'll get a free book. here in the northeast quiet before the storm, we have a storm coming up this weekend, a coastal event. we have cold air behind the cold
