tv   The Kelly File  FOX News  December 15, 2016 9:00pm-10:01pm PST

9:00 pm
we hope you'll set your dvr so you nef miss an episode. we'll see you back here tomorrow night. o'reilly's hour tonight. we'll be back tomorrow at 7:00 and every night. see you tomorrow. breaking tonight, president obama now vowing to quote take action against russia for interfere in the united states election allegedly. a threat that comes just hours after reports that he was well aware of russia's role months ago but kept the information quiet because he thought hillary clinton was going to win. welcome to "the kelly file." i'm megyn kelly. it's believed that the white house had knowledge of russia's cyber militias dating back to the summer of 2015. and tonight the reports suggest that the obama administration did not say anything because folks thought that hillary clinton would win the election and they didn't want to start a
9:01 pm
cyber war with russia. this follows a string of white house allegations against donald trump with the press secretary josh earnest claiming that not only did candidate trump know that russia was engaging in cyber activity, he encouraged it. well they apparently knew too and his boss was the sitting president. kellyanne conway is calling the charges against her boss breathtaking. >> that is breathtaking. i guess he's auditioning to be a political pundit. that is incredibly disappointings to hear from the podium of the white house press secretary. he essentially stated that the president-elect had knowledge of it, maybe even fanned the flames. it's incredibly irresponsible. >> we'll have reaction from congressman john king and lieutenant colonel tony schafer. but we begin tonight with our
9:02 pm
chief intelligence correspondent katheri katheri katheri katherine h katherine her rij. this was an effort to interfere in the u.s. election. these operations were same-sencd by the highest levels. a government source says there was a reluctance to further insert government institutions and their assessments into a deeply politicized election cycle. a leading expert says the intelligence community reviewed the techniques, tactics and procedures leveraged in the attacks and made the link to russia. in october the agencies or home land security went on the record. though putin was not mentioned by name. >> this is a statement that was written by the intelligence community and the department of homeland security. you should ask them what their intent was. but my reading of it was that it
9:03 pm
was not intended to be subtle. >> tonight the senior democrat said the sources were highly credible. senator feinstein says she believes that the russians engaged in a covert campaign to influence american opinion. current and former intelligence officials say language really matters here and there is a big gap between russian government sanctioned hacking and the russian president personally directing and dictating how e-mails were released. >> joining me now with more, peter king, member of the homeland security committee and lieutenant colonel tony schafer, a cia senior intelligence officer. congressman king within you w, were on the program last night in disbelief that the cia had
9:04 pm
blown off congress and exmain what they met here. and today you went to trump tower and met with the president-elect. what's the latest? >> i discussed with him what i said on your show last night, there's no evidence that's been brought to our attention and the intelligence community has never shown us anything indicating that the russians, who i believe were involved in hacking, that they were attempting to favor donald trump over hillary clinton. they've consistently told us that the intention of the russians was to disrupt the election and put a cloud over whoever won the election. they're succeeding in that. but as far as the reports over the weekend, that's what i was talking about last night. nothing to back that up at all. no -- >> that there was a motive to help donald trump. that's the latest twist. >> absolutely. the fact that was coming from the intelligence community i found very corn incerns.
9:05 pm
it's like someone is taking sid sides. >> the notion that president obama is now saying it was the russians and we are going to take action. we need to take action. it's like, well, you've known since the summer of '15 and the other question is, what kind of action? like redline action and syria action? it's tough to take that kind of threat seriously given his past failure to follow through in much more serious circumstances. >> i'm still skeptical. there's no new evidence. james clapper put out -- >> and even he said that. he said, i don't think they got it. >> he's an operative who's run these sorts of operations. i've had to notify the national security council in certain operations, brief the white house on things i'm doing. things get politicized at that level all of the time. no other intelligence agency is
9:06 pm
backing up the cia on this. if that evidence is there, president obama owes this nation like president reagan did on the 007 downing that the russians did back in the '80s when and president kennedy had to have pictures at the u.n. showing the russian missiles in cuba. that's what is needed for the president to come back with this severe belief in response. i don't believe that's available by the fact that there's no new information. >> here's the question. i'll put it to you, congressman king. in the cia's defense they say you can draw the inference because all of the stuff that came out hurt hillary and not donald trump. there were reportedly some hacks of some republicans and yet we never saw those documents. all we saw was podesta stuff and dnc stuff. you don't have to be a rocket scientist to say why would they release that and not the stuff
9:07 pm
from the republicans. >> we don't know that the russians were involved with podesta. and general clapper said that also. they're not certain where that came from. number two would be as far as the motive. all along they've been telling us that they don't know what the motive is. you can always have inferences. but the cia up until november 17th, we heard nothing other than the fact that they didn't know. what happened between november 17th and now that caused the cia to change their opinion. they could have made these same inphysicia inferences back in october. the recent cia report -- i don't know who it is at the cia, john brennan? no one is on the record. >> and they won't speak to you. >> unheard of. it's wrong. in the past they came up with a report that we disagree with, that's fair game. but there is nothing. shadow boxing. >> why would the cia be playing
9:08 pm
peek a boo with the fact? >> they're trying to insert themselves into democrat politics. megyn, the razor should apply here. julian asage said where this came from, an insider. >> that is the simplest theory is right one. >> maybe the simplest theory is that someone inside the dnc did give all of the e-mails to asage. maybe that's what happened here. i know for a fact that others on our side have been upset, former members of nsa have done things to assist. maybe we ought to look at some of the things closer to home. john brennan is acting politically and he should be held accountable. no one else is trying to do what he is doing which is undermining the election. >> great to see you both. four days until the electoral college casts its votes and there are a number of new efforts to block president-elect trump from taking office. full page ads across the country
9:09 pm
pleading with the members of the electoral college to ignore the voters and reject donald trump. plus some hollywoods got in the act with a public service announcement. >> republican members of the electoral college. this message is for you. our founding fathers built electoral college to safeguard the american people from the dangers of a demagogue and to ensure that the presidency only goes to someone who is endowed with the reck sit qualifications. >> an eminent degree, someone who is highly qualified for the job. >> chris stirewalt is with us. i mean is that going to do it? debra messing is going -- >> "will and grace" was great. >> amazing. and president bartlett, a former president there trying to stop.
9:10 pm
yes. left wing. >> the most successful democratic president of the 20th century, no doubt. but here's the deal. they had the wrong argument before when they told the electors don't vote for trump because the russians stole the elections. because russians didn't steal the election, they influenced the campaign. now they come back with an argument that conservatives actually like which is we are a federal system, we have a democratic republic in which these electors have their own agency, they can do what they want. most of the states punish you if you don't vote the way that you are supposed to vote but you're your own person. when they go to their state capitals on monday, they're doing it on themselves. this san effective statement made by the wrong people. stars who are going to say we love federalism and alexander hamilton. and it's all so great.
9:11 pm
no no no, you're doing it wrong. >> hollywood has not learned its lesson that bringing out lena done ham and lady gaga may have alienated some people. do they really think this is going to do it? >> well part of it is the anguished heart of people who believe that america is slipping through their fingers and they're taking it hard. i understand that. losing elections is hard. this one is really hard because very few people saw it coming. it hurts. i get that part. but the other part is they want to leave a mark on donald trump so that as he try to govern, no matter what he does, it's the ill legitimacy of him in office -- >> good luck when you have a republican house and senate. >> well were yeah. >> and i guess i have stolen the last word. >> uh-huh. >> mr. stirewalt, good to see you. new efforts to change the results of this election. up next we're going to get a chance to speak with sean spicer, the man described as most likely to be the next white
9:12 pm
house press secretary. size him up. can you see him in that white house press briefing room? look at him. sorry, sean. we'll be right to him and ask him some questions. plus word from trump tower today that the president-elect is starting to take a serious look at the supreme court. and governor mike huckabee is here with that news. and then a kelly file exclusive about how a conspiracy theory about bill and hillary clinton resulted in a man shooting up a pizza parlor. for the first time ever the owner of the restaurant is talking and he's hear in moments only on "the kelly file." >> this is where we store our computer system and also where sometimes our staff puts their bags or something. bags or something. this is a new lock because t t t
9:13 pm
cartels, militias, terrorist groups. they all need a place to park their cash and cherna is their dirty little piggy bank. we're going to insert into the country while nobody is looking. we're going to steal their money, sir? no, we are going to destroy it. we're going to finish this mission. anything we find is ours. do you want to trust a bunch of black water marks? i mean the rush, i've never felt anything like it. if we stay here we're going to die. then we die.
9:14 pm
why are you checking your credit score? you don't want to ride the 13l forever, do you? the doctor said it's not contagious. [coughing] credit karma, huh? yeah, it's free. credit karma. give yourself some credit.
9:15 pm
9:16 pm
look at the size of this place. every corner is packed. now the press won't say it -- hey, press, turn the cameras, show them, please. show them. show them. world's most dishonest people. these are dishonest people. >> number one. breaking tonight, president-elect donald trump taking on the media. this time during his thank you tour stop in pennsylvania.
9:17 pm
comes on the same day that mr. trump was supposed to hold a news conference on how he will handle his business conflicts. tweeting, the media tries hard to -- in moments, we're joined by sean spicer. we'll ask him about braeaking news on a possible position. first, trace gallagher is live on why mr. trump is taking new heat over his business deals. trace. >> hey, megyn. business experts say to eliminate conflicts of interest, donald trump should liquidate his stake in his company. instead trump says that no new deals would be done while he's in office and that he'll hand over company management to a team that includes his children, though many have questioned why if his children are taking other the business are they also involved in the transition
9:18 pm
meetings which according to politico includes interviews with potential cabinet nominees. instead of going forward with the scheduled news conference to answer questions and lay out his grand plan to avoid conflicts of interest, trump's team says that the president-elect will offer up details in january. today, sean spicer, who is also advising the transition was press on cnn about trump's transparency. watch. >> the american people have understood exactly what they're getting and they voted overwhelmingly for him. he's clear about what he owns, the role of his family and everything else since hi announced for president. and they overwhelmingly elected him with all of that on the table. >> trump himself went on twit tore criticize the general media for trying to make his business ties and the move to the white house so complex. and one of the president-elect's favorite media targets with to be "the new york times" may have provided more ammunition by
9:19 pm
hiring reporter glen thrush. he's the man what was exposed by wikileaks for sending stories to hillary clinton staffers before publication. in april of 2013, thrush wrote to john podesta, please don't share or tell anyone i did this. tell me if i f'd anything up. the times calls him a premier political journalist. but in the leaked e-mails thrush called himself a hack. megyn. >> joining me now, sean spicer, the senior communications advice tore the presidential transition team and reportedly the leading candidate to become president-elect trump's press secretary. great to see you. let's get right to it. have you been offered the position of white house press secretary? >> no, i have not. >> if offered the position, would you take it? >> absolutely. i would take anything that the president would ask me to do, shovel the driveway, mow the
9:20 pm
lawn. he has a real agenda of change and i would be glad to play a role in anything he asked me to do to advance the agenda. >> if not an offer, a have they discussed it with you? >> i don't get into any conversations -- >> i got you there. according to our own john robert bs, th s, they're saying you're a leading candidate. do you believe we might get an announcement, whoever it is, as soon as tomorrow? >> it could be any time. look i've now had an opportunity to be around the president-elect most of the time since he won the election. when he makes a decision, he lets it be known. so when he makes his mind up, he'll let us know and we'll get the word out. >> there's also a report that reince priebus said this is a package deal, sean spicer has to be the press secretary that's
9:21 pm
the only way i'm going to take it. because he hearts you. >> and i heart him. >> is there is chance that it's a package deal? >> absolutely not. mr. trump doesn't take package deals. i would be happy to help advance his agenda. there never was a deal and he chose reince based on the success he had of running the rnc and want to bring that to the white house. if anyone knows anything about putting together good deals, it would be donald trump. >> make he likes that panel deal. >> hopefully. >> let's talk about the media. you know there was a discussion with rinse peince priebus. would you advocate for daily presidential or white house press briefings for the white
9:22 pm
house press corps? >> i think we have to look at everything. i don't know that it needs to be daily. i don't know that they all need to be on camera. that's a view shared by a lot of former white house secretaries, of some of the media, in fact, that the white house press briefings have become somewhat of a spectacle. maybe there's a more effective way of delivering the news and having a more, you know, appropriate adult conversation with the media to inform them of the president's actions as opposed to an on-camera activity. but it's not a yes or no. what you've seen with donald trump is real change. he's not going to settle for the status quo. >> is he going to bounce reporters out? >> absolutely not. absolutely not. he has a healthy belief in the first amendment and the understanding -- >> so healthy, why did he ban them during the campaign? >> he understands the role of president and the role of the white house. that's a vastly different view than being at a campaign rally
9:23 pm
that's paid for by the campaign, funded by him, by his own dollars out a private venue. he has the right to control access to that. >> so if the "the new york times" does a scathing editorial on president trump, they're going to let the "the new york times" reporters in the pressroom and have the same access? >> they're in the pool right now and they still have scathing editorials and pretty poor repo reporting. >> so the answer is yes? >> yes in the children are taking a hit, donald and eric, for sitting in on these briefings when they're supposed on the running the trump organization. can they do both? can that continue after the inauguration? >> i think what mr. trump is going to do is lay out and delineate the difference he and whoever else will play in advancing the agenda. it will be made crystal clear and the line will be bright as to what's business and what's government.
9:24 pm
>> do you see the potential conflict -- >> there is a potential. >> on presidential meetings. >> when it comes to mr. trump himself as president, the law is clear that he cannot have a conflict of interest. however, because he wants to ensure that he's focused on the american people and moving this country guard, he's taken the additional step of saying that he wants to make sure that the line is clear that then that will happen. as far as the children are concerned with respect to the transition, their names are listed on the website. they were announced. this meeting that we had yesterday, we brought the press in. everyone who comes up and down the elevator are there for the cameras to see. i think when it comes to transparency, we've been much more transparent when it comes to this transition than any other transition in the past. that's true. do you see trump's sons maintaining these level in these
9:25 pm
meetings after trump is inaugurated and donald and eric are supposed to be running the trump business -- >> once the president-elect becomes president, he will have laid out exactly how he's going to delineate between his role and the family's role as government officials or government activities and his role and their role when it comes to pertaining to the business. >> dana perino said when you're the white house press secretary you have to wake up at 4:30 in the morning. are you going to work those 18-hour days, wake up at 4:30, doesn't pay well. just the disgusting media as trump would say firing unfair questions at you. why would you want that job? >> well, as i said earlier, it's not just that job, but any job. >> 4:30 in the morning? >> i already get up at 5:00. >> good luck to you. big news breaking on one of hillary clinton's closest aides. see what is happening with huma abedin and her investigation into her estranged husband.
9:26 pm
and then a "the kelly file" collusive about how a conspiracy theory about bill and hillary clinton resulted in a man shooting up a pizza parlor. the owner of the pizza shop is here. he'll be here on the story behind the story. >> there's nothing here. it's completely fictitious. this is a great business and the fact that anyone would continue to ♪ the itsy bitsy spider went up the waterspout.
9:27 pm
down came the rain and clogged the gutter system creating a leak in the roof. luckily the spider recently had geico help him with homeowners insurance. water completely destroyed his swedish foam mattress. he got full replacement and now owns the sleep number bed. his sleep number setting is 25. call geico and see how much you could save on homeowners insurance.
9:28 pm
9:29 pm
9:30 pm
a kelly file exclusive tonight on the conspiracy theory that came to be known as pizzagate. it was a bogus news story suggesting that bill and hillary clinton were running a sex ring out of a washington, d.c. pizza parlor. it turned out frightening when a man showed up at the pizza parlor with a gun demanding to know more. james alefantis, the owner of the pizzeria is talking for the first tomb. he's here on the set with me in moments. but first to trace gallagher on how this whole thing got started.
9:31 pm
trace. >> megyn, as many controversies do, it began with a tweet. october 30th, days after the fbi announced they would be reopening an investigation into hillary clinton's e-mail, someone on twitter whose name remains unverified but has several thousand followers posted that new e-mails found on anthony weiners computer confirm that hillary clinton was involved in a pedophilia ring. the twitter post included information from a facebook user who stated, quote, my nypd said it's much more vile and serious than classified material on weiner's device. we're talking an international child enslavement and sex ring. the next day the bogus claimed was pick up by your news, right wing bloggance several pro-trump websites. alex jones, a far right web host posted a youtube video seen
9:32 pm
almost 500,000 times. >> when i think about the children hillary clinton has personally murdered and chopped up and raped, i have zero fear standing up against her. >> the rumor spread, inspiring some newfound internet sleuth to start digging around in john podesta's hacked e-mail searching for proof and location of the so-called sex ring. what they found were numerous reference to pizza, a term that's slang for child pornography. so somehow they concluded that podesta and company were speaking in code. they pounced on an e-mails from d.c. pizzeria owner and prominent democratic supporter james alefantis infight them to a fundraiser at the restaurant. they started combing through facebook posts. alefantis said the child is his
9:33 pm
god daughter and the picture was very innocent. and this picture that con searcy theorists decided must be the secret basement where children are locked up. but in fact it's from a restaurant alefantis considered leasing. and come met ping-pong doesn't even have a basement. but november 4th, six days after the initial tweet of a sex ring, alefantis was officially part of the conspiracy. he began receiving threatening phone call. on november 7th, the hashtag pays zagate was born and by november 16th, people starting showing up at the restaurant to investigate for themselves, like this man who used a video camera to live stream his visit on periscope. on december 4th, edgar welch showed up armed with an ar-15, a
9:34 pm
revolver and a knife determined to find underground rooms and vaults, firing his gun at a door behind which hoe wouldn't have found anything interesting. >> the bullet went into our computer system. >> welch surrendered peacefully saying he was trying to rescue the children he was sure were hidden inside. he faces charges including assault with a deadly weapon. >> trace gallagher, thank you. joining me now in a "the kelly file" exclusive, james alefantis, owner of comet ping-po ping-pong. what a terrible ordeal this must have been for you. >> it has been. >> when this man walked into your restaurant with this gun, firing multiple shots, no one was injured, you weren't there that day. >> i was there earlier that day. >> you knew things were reaching a fevered pitch but did you foresee that? >> it had been build before the
9:35 pm
election. starting on november 4th i started receiving messages on my instagram that were bizarre and strange and accusing me of all kinds of falseness and conspiracy. and this built and built and built for over a month. and really, it's not just me that was involved. it was my staff who was harassed and attacked. they received instagram messages, facebook messages. then it started to appear that images of children and other people were being taken from social media and blasted throughout the internet with this insane conspiracy idea filled with just lies about this impossible international conspiracy of human traffickers involving hillary clinton. >> and you -- you're a democratic donor. there's nothing illegal about that. doesn't make you a pedophile or somebody that's part of a child sex ring. one of the pictures that trace showed in the report, people are saying, look this is evidence. there's a child with her hands taped down. you're saying that's a simple
9:36 pm
explanation. >> yeah. we've invited your cameras into the restaurant. people have all of these ideas. people use social media. this is a picture of my god child very happily playing with her sister. her sister has chained her hands. i put this on my instagram with their approval. it sits there on the internet for a year and a half and people start building these lies and falsities about innocent people and then spreading this image over the internet. >> when people talk about fake news, a lot of people roll their eyes. the truth is they don't always figure it out. and someone could have been killed inside of your restaurant. >> yes. >> for no good reason other than people like alex jones fanned a conspiracy theory that even the d.c. police says has no basis in fact. >> it's pack of lies. and it's dangerous. what happens is this person was inspired to drive across four
9:37 pm
state lines with an assault rifle and enter a family friendly restaurant at 3:00 in the afternoon on a sunday. you can imagine the fear that must have been felt by these people. and this is real consequences. my staff lives in fear. my staff are the bravest people i've ever met. we're trying to make sure they're safe and do their job. imagine someone coming to your workplace with an assault rifle. >> and to be accused of being a pedophile when you have e-mails with the word pizza. it's really gone down the rabbit hole. you tell me whether this has affected your business. separate and apart from the fact that no one was injured, whether there have been real consequences to you and your customers and staff. the d.c. police are saying this is fake. fake. >> thank you. it's true. yes. it's been justterrorized. it's been over a month of daily death threats to me, hundreds of phone calls to the restaurant
9:38 pm
asking for all kinds of wild things like ordering a cheese pizza. something that we do. we've been in existence for ten years. it was difficult and shocking. now our community has rallied around us so we have people coming in. there's families and kids. we're there. we have private security. we're trying to make sure that the staff feels safe, that the community feels safe and the customers feel safe. >> what needs to change? >> i think there has to be some way of breaking these things up. there's no -- it's impossible that this news can go from one person to the next, the next and the grand conspiracy theory and there's no reporting, no ability to do anything. >> i know reddit has band this topic on its website, slowly but surely. those who helped fan it are trying to dial it back out of the concerns for the safety. >> this could happen to anyone. it's not just us.
9:39 pm
any single person. >> i know you said to our producers it's all surreal until the gun comes in. thank you for being here and telling your story. >> thank you so much. >> all the best to you. incredible. so in other news, word from trump tower that the president-elect is starting to take a serious look at the supreme court. this is going to be a fight for sure. and governor mike huckabee is here next on that. plus a new twist in the controversy over the muslim woman who was arrested for walked around the shelter, no intention of adopting. he was the very last kennel in the very last row. emaciated. he was skin and bones. usually what you see in neglected dogs. it was one of those complete, meant-to-be moments... i totally fell in love with him.

9:43 pm
developing tonight, new reports that president-elect donald trump is starting to discuss who might be his next pick as supreme court picks. judge napolitano visited trump tower today. you couldn't miss him. and the judge stopped for the
9:44 pm
cameras on the way out >> we spoke for an hour today about the constitution, about the supreme court and about the process for choosing the replacement for justice antonin calea. i think he's going to begin to concentrate on finding a younger version of justice scalia and have that name out there before he's inaugurated. >> former arkansas governor mike huckabee is here with thoughts on that. this is huge. we haven't been paying much attention to it. but that choice will have a bigger impact. >> if he gets a bad cabinet member, he can fire them. he doesn't get to fire a supreme court nominee once they're on the court. >> even if he decides he doesn't like them. >> being a president is a four-year job, maybe an 8-year job. being a supreme court justice might be a 20-year job.
9:45 pm
he's got to make good decisions. one of the things that i hope he does -- i don't want him to look and say let's get a conservative judge rather than a liberal judge. let's get a judge who has a sacred view of the constitution and understands that the court is only interpreti irepresentin not interpreting it. >> i don't think you put nine guys in ro robbes and let them t deciding. leave it to the states if they want to legislate for or against it. of course that was seen differently. how many, like how many vacancies do you think that president trump will have the chance to fill and i don't think that he'll fill the scalia seat before the inauguration, announce his pick? >> i think it's possible that he might. he's certainly got that one. that's a given. but he could have two or three
9:46 pm
more. you have several court members who are getting up there in years. i don't want to name names. >> ginsberg. >> somebody will say i'm predicting somebody's desmies. >> it's that they might leave. >> i mean i'm just being honest and realistic. >> justice scalia would not have chosen to die under a democratic president if given the choice. >> an amazing human being. the ran he was amazing is because he understood his job when he went in there with the black robe was not to say this is what if legislature should have done but he didn't so we're going to do it for them. it's a very dangerous thing that's really only been in play about 40, 50, 60 years in america. it's not something that the original founders of our country would have tolerated. and it's something that we shouldn't tolerate. >> do you feel like as governor of arkansas this has been a legacy that you were able to
9:47 pm
leaf at the state level? and speak to, you know, how important this will be for president trump. he won the this election really by 80,000 votes if you consider wisconsin, minnesota and pennsylvania. and those 80,000 voters made a big difference. >> and those changes and the responsibility goes to the grandchildren, not just to the children, but to the grandchildren of those who are alive today. we elected most judges in arkansas but i appointed vacancies and had many appointments. i always tried to ask myself, does this person understand that their job is limited to interpreting the law. and if they want to make law, they need to run for the legislature. >> that could have been spoken by justice scalia himself. >> there's no check and balance on the court right now. when the other two branches of the government surrender to the court we're in trouble. and we're in trouble right now. >> it's fun to see you.
9:48 pm
>> i had a great time. also tonight, big news breaking on one of hillary clinton's closest aides. huma abedin. we'll look at why the trump supporters want to boycotttttttt
