3:01 am
ridiculous apology for publicly released the closed door testimony of fusion g.p.s. >> i have had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit. ♪ ♪ ♪ steve: he sang that song on this here program parking lot party. ainsley: this here program. it's a great song, isn't it? parking lot party. that's what everybody does. college football you tailgate beforehand. before concerts. brian: i don't know what you are talking about. ainsley: in your in effect woods there is a place called something beach where i have been to a concert. steve: jones beach. brian: jones beach. ainsley: go to a jimmie buffet parties there. you can't drink in the concert. brian: hard for them to sing over the blengsder on the ice machine it makes a lot of noise. they put it on crush. ainsley: i was wondering why he chose that video though
3:02 am
because you can't brink inside. everyone was drinking on the outside. steve: already thinking about closing time on friday. brian: absolutely. steve: lots of news to think about. we have been telling you all week long there has been some suspicions among republican lawmakers was that dirty dossier which is completely unproven except for one thing that carter page did, in fact, go to russia. was that dossier used to put in front of a fisa judge so that the federal government could officially, via the fbi and the department of justice spy on that man, donald trump and his associates? and now we know the answer is, yes, the dossier was used to get a fisa warrant maybe more than once. ainsley: sara carter is the individual we have interviewed on this. she has three sources she told sean hannity last night has confirmed yes the dirty dossier was used in part to spy on the trump campaign. listen to her last night. >> i have spoken to a number
3:03 am
of sources. one senior law enforcement officials. and another in the doj. and the dossier was absolutely used as part of the fbi's ability to gain a warrant, to basically spy on members of the trump campaign. we know, coming from the mouths of members, senior members of the fbi who testified, both comey and mccabe, that the only part of the dossier that they were able to confirm that was actually factual was that carter page had actually traveled to moscow. everything else in the dossier apparently they did not talk about that. they did not confirm. there are a number of sources that are alarmed about that. particularly people within law enforcement, who are concerned that they were using this dossier to find a way to look into the trump campaign. brian: what's the significance of this? well, if you give $10 million to an opposition research firm, which 7 point
3:04 am
something from hillary's camp and 3 from the dnc, really the same thing because we found out from you donna brazile's book that hillary clinton camp bailed out the democratic national committee and basically had made it an arm of the clinton camp. if you pay somebody $10 million to find something out about your opponent and then that information is given to the fbi to spur some type of fisa warrant to go up to a court and say, listen, we have this proof, now we need a warrant to unmask or follow or tap these people's phones, what does it say about this entire process? and you got the clue that they were hiding something. when the fbi was asked over and over again, even the department of justice, hand over the information about the fisa warrants, what went into getting them. and they just refused to do it. even when chris wray took over. ainsley: there are some questions here. the focus now is on the fbi. did they go to the secret court and get this fisa warrant. steve: sounds like it. ainsley: to spy on the president's campaign. did they do that with an unverified dossier.
3:05 am
if the only thing they verified is that carter page went over to russia shah. nothing in that 35 pages was verified. that is unbelievable. second thing they want to know. sara carter wrote an article the next thing they want to know did the fbi pay for this dossier. steve: on hannity's program last night he and sara carter both heard that perhaps james comey or andrew mccabe themselves paid for through the fbi the dossier. just the fact that they could have used just a folder full of made up stuff, opposition research. they took it to a court, the fbi did, and weaponized that to spy on americans is unbelievable. and that's some of the frustration the president feels and has felt and expressed yesterday. watch. >> there is collusion, but it's really with the democrats and the russians. far more than it is with the republicans and the russians. so the witch-hunt continues. there has been no collusion
3:06 am
between the trump campaign and russians or trump and russians. no collusion. it's a democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for loses an election that, frankly, the democrats should have won because they have such a tremendous advantage in the electoral college. so it was brought up for that reason. brian: if you read last week's editorial from glenn kessler the founder of g.p.s., he says you know, i'm going to tell you right now i need all these transcripts to released to show how viable and how reputable fusion gps is. you could drive a truck through some of his explanations. one of those explanations was that the fbi corroborated most of which was when the dossier and that is why christopher steele had so much credit. well, really, when james comey turned around talked to president-elect trump. he said unverified salacious material. and now we founder find out it was not only corroborated but used in many cases to get these fisa warnings. other problem is they say
3:07 am
the fbi had a molly inside the trump camp giving this information. turns out he might have misspoke and it's not a mole, it was papadopoulos, a drunken conversation with australian ambassador. tells that this was out there. steve: you just mentioned george papadopoulos. remember, it was about two weeks ago the "new york times" had that big exclusive story that apparently it was george papadopoulos that was the reason, you know, the drunken things he had said and that's what got the collusion investigation rolling. nothing to it. ainsley: reminds me benghazi with the video? steve: yes. ainsley: sitting down with cabinet members and touting accomplishments first cabinet meeting of 2018. listen to. so things he will accomplished in the first year. >> 2017 was a year of tremendous achievement. i don't think any administration has ever done, has done what we have done. and what we have accomplished in its first
3:08 am
year. which isn't quite finished yet. we confirmed an incredible new supreme court justice. and more circuit judges in our first year than any administration in the hills industry of our country. we have set a new record on reducing regulation. the records that we set, 22 to 1, nobody has ever come close. we peaced the largest tax cut and reform in american history and including the fact that the individual mandate was terminated. people are supposed to pay for the privilege of not having healthcare. that was not good. brian: deliver in so many ways, if his administration continues to deliver, if they can tick off some type of administration deal, if the president can deliver that tone and not put his chin out every day in provocative tweets, now how accurate it is and how entertaining they often are, it will allow the moderates
3:09 am
to get his approval rating up something quinnipiac poll. because when people are asked about the economy and that's a very personal question, how is the economy to you? 66% says it's excellent or good and 33% say not so good or poor. those numbers usually mean 50 plus approval rating for the president in office. steve: that's the highest number the quinnipiac poll has ever had since they were asking that question in 2001. so you can see that 2017 ended with flourish, ended on a high note for the president. there were a lot of set backs and a lot of them you have got to figure could have been in part due to the mainstream media coverage of the administration. i mean, you look at, for instance, if you look at the big three networks, their coverage from january 3rd through the 9th. look at the morning shows and nighttime shows. if they had a choice between cover the michael wolff book, fire and fury or dow
3:10 am
up 25,000. fire and fury 2 hours 20 minutes and 5 seconds covering that book. ainsley: that book was supposed to come out tuesday of this week. came out last my day because of the hype over it the hype started a few days before that. that's what this poll looks at. this poll looks at last wednesday two days before the book came out up until tuesday of this week when the book was supposed to come out. brian: i understanding it. no doubt about it. we covered it more than the dow. should be a little bit closer. when you come out and say president's chief confidante turns on the president and urges people to cooperate on inside the administration book, i get it but the balance could have been a little bit different. people didn't want to jump on anti-trump. ainsley: i think we covered the dow much more. steve: absolutely. we also covered the fbi reopening the investigation into the clinton foundation and they only covered that to the tune of 11 minutes. keep in mind, when it came to dow 25,000. how much time do you think abc spent on it?
3:11 am
take a guess. ainsley: how much? steve: 23 seconds. that's all. but the wolff book. if you are online buying fire and fury. apparently people are buying the wrong about about fire and fury. that guy is shooting through the roof on amazon. one of the reviewers said i don't understand there is nothing about trump in here. brian: it's a canadian book, too. how long do we spend talking to jillian? have we done a study on that? ainsley: more than 23 seconds. jillian: if you would like to prolong this you can. people in the control room might be mad. brian: open to too much criticism in the control room. ainsley: so hard to put the show together. jillian: and we mess it up. let's start with a fox news alert right now. overnight the air force three nuclear capable stealth bombers to guam mental to sent a strong message to north korea. show bombers on the way to
3:12 am
the territory. 200 airmen deployed to guam. this comes a day after mike pensz vowed white house would put maximum pressure on north korea as he prepares to lead the u.s. delegates to south korea next month. a race against time at this hour to find people still missing in those devastating and deadly california mud slides. staggering amounts of rain triggers raging rivers of mud and debris running down hillsides taking anything and everything with it? >> we are stuck in our house. we are not able to get out. we are running low on food. we are hoping we can get south to pick up some food. i don't know if we can get there. ainsley: hardest hit area montecito where thousands are without power. hundreds of homes destroyed hundreds more are damaged. house majority whip steve scalise is resting comfortably after successful follow up surgery. is he expected to return to the capital next few weeks.
3:13 am
this comes months after he was ambushed and shot in the hip by a lone gunman at congressional baseball practice. he was close to death when the bullet ripped through bones and organs. three other people were shot and survived. that's a look at your headlines. this whole time steve scalise has been nothing but positive energy. always smiling. positive outlook. brian: thanks, jillian. 13 minutes after the hour. illegals caught hiding in this semi but they didn't go to jail. they went straight to catholic charities question mark? exclamation point. we can't make this up. steve: dianne feinstein why she released that fusion gps testimony. it's not a happy story. brian: genius. >> that's because i don't make excuse i have had a bad cold. maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit.
3:14 am

3:17 am
especially when inside another amazing machine. your an amazing machine. the lexus es. with standard technology like lexus safety system plus. the lexus es, and es hybrid. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. brian: new questions this morning after the san antonio police chief allowed a dozen illegal immigrants found in a semi-truck to go free. joining us right now is the president of the san antonio police officers association mike kelly who wants the police chief put on leave. so the police chief. this is a very odd situation. the police chief has gone soft on illegal immigrants. why has he defied his own state's law, sir? >> well, i think that's a
3:18 am
question that i asked our mayor and city council. state authority with the department of justice that very question. just some breaking news that happened late last night. we had spent, my vice president and i, my legislative director spent most of the afternoon at our texas capital, excuse me, and we met with the folks up there and the lieutenant governor's office and met with the governor's office themselves and their attorneys and they have already issued, based on our testimony, a cease and desist but not a cease and desist but basically notifying the san antonio police department, especially chief mcmanis, he is not allowed to touch any of the evidence that's involved in this. they are not allowed to destroy anything. they are not allowed to do anything at all whatsoever. they are to preserve every
3:19 am
single piece of evidence that is involved in this incident so that they have the ability to come down here and begin an investigation. so we're very happy about that. brian: chief mcmanis says they -- he refers to the 12 illegal immigrants as victims. you say they are a party to the offense committed. >> that's correct. as a matter of fact, he keeps intertwining the definitions for your viewers if they don't know, human trafficking is completely different than human smuggling. human trafficking can actually have an element of enslaving somebody that's brought into the country illegally, predominantly it has a sexual connotation to it where you are forcing people into prostitution or some other horrible kind of crime such as that and human smuggling is the actual act of the person trying to get across the country paying a fee or service into our country. completely different. they are a party to the criminal offense. brian: right. so, michael, essentially,
3:20 am
texas did what california-the exact opposite. they said we are a sanctuary state. texas says no, no. we are going to make sure that the entire state, there are no sanctuary cities. but the police chief is not on board. in fact, the police department's statement is this: homeland security was never told. their services were not needed. so sapd handled this investigation utilizing the state smuggling statute. this police chief is not going to get on board. you want him on desk duty until he does or do you want him relieved? >> i think he needs to be removed in the police department completely and put in plain clothes while this investigation takes place. because as the chief of police he still has the ability to have influence over the subordinates underneath him. what's even more critical and even more dangerous in my opinion and scary is that even that very narrative that you just described that the chief has said that he did is false. that is not what happened at the scene and that's the story that has not come out public yet that i tried to
3:21 am
get council and the mayor to listen to but they refused to. brian: when law and order can't be put forward by the chief there is a problem. michael, thank you so much. >> thank you for listening to us. brian: you got it aspiring body builder dies of the flu. we will give you details. night . when it comes to frequent heartburn, trust nexium 24hr. night . but prevagen helps your brain with an ingredient originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. the name to remember. it's time for sleep number's 'lowest prices of the season' on the only bed that adjusts on both sides to your ideal comfort your sleep number setting.

john wayne troxel posting this picture on facebook with the caption if they choose not to surrender then we will kill them with extreme prejudice. whether that be by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face or beating them to death with our intrenching tools. and that is your headlines. ainsley? ainsley: thank you, steve. 21-year-old aspiring body builder dies a few days after catching the flu. he is not the only victim. just yesterday ohio confirmed two young boys, a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old also died of the flu. so when should you go see the doctor if you think you have the flu? dr. nicole saphier has the answers for us. first of all, before you get to that how do you know the difference between a common cold and the flu, dr. saphier. >> this is devastating what is going on right now. this is becoming epidemic deadly flu season. a lot of people are walking around with congestion and cough right now that doesn't mean you have the flu. very important to
3:26 am
distinguish symptoms of the flu, fever, chills, body ache and headache in addition to cough and congestion. ainsley: when do you go see your doctor? >> that's a great question. unfortunately there is not right answer. there is not a check this, this, this and you absolutely have to go. if you have a chronic illness, diabetes, overweight. heart disease, lung disease you are absolutely increased risk at getting severe flu symptoms. if you have flu symptoms, again, fever, chills, body aches, headaches, you can stay home for the most part, rest, drink a lot of fluid us but if you start finding yourself chest pain, difficulty breathing, severe headaches, confusion, or you're elderly or a young child, you really need to go see your physician. you have need to make sure you are under the care of someone. ainsley: parents with young kids you hear this story the 1-year-old, 4-year-old, the 21-year-old, what do we do when we start seeing symptoms in our little ones. >> yes. we both have little ones at home and this is terrifying. really, you have to watch them because they are sick all the time during this
3:27 am
season. earaches. ainsley: runny nose constantly. >> every day. you want to just know your child. you know if your child isn't normal. will he tharlg, very tired. not getting up not playing. vomiting so much they are not taking in water. keep an eye out for that or the persistent fevers. even for little ones at this point, even if the slightest thought of having the flu, you should go see your doctor because there are medications we can give to lessen the duration and lessen severity. you don't want to be the patient who said what if i took them in earlier? what else could i have done? a lot of people got the flu shot. does it really work? first does it work "yes" or "no," sorry then i have another one. >> it absolutely does work. it's not 100 percent effective it does prevent anywhere from 40 people to 60 people from getting the flu. not only that, if it doesn't prevent from you getting the flu it can lessen your symptoms or severity and absolutely decrease your risk of dying from the flu. even though this flu vaccine may not be the most effective we have seen we
3:28 am
still everyone get it don't just get it your yourself get it for your girl at home and elderly relatives. protect those around you as well. ainsley: 40 to 60% who get it won't get the flu. friends been in bed for entire week one of my friends during the holidays. she couldn't wrap presents. had to have someone hire. she doesn't remember. she can understand how people do die of the year. >> it is a bad year. h 2. people remember the swine flu. this strain is essentially a mutation of the virus. it is bad. it is causing severe symptoms in healthy young adults. so no one is immune to getting the flu. take care of yourself. if you are sick, stay home. don't be a martyr. don't go to work. you are just infecting everyone. don't touch your mouth and nose. wash hands, stay safe. ainsley: good advice.

3:33 am
meanwhile happening today, the white house taking on prison reform. ainsley: this issue is especially personal to the president'sson and senior advisor jared kushner. brian: pastor scott will be at the white house today and joins us now. were you behind this initiative or were you asked to join the president at a forum on. this actually, this is not the first conversation that has been had or being had concerning prison reform. it's a concern for the president but it's also a passion for jared kushner. that they want to cus curb this recidivism rate and integrate former prisoners in sewed so they become productive members of american society rather than get in that cycle back and forth in and out of prison. something this administration is going to be very, very proactive on and has a huge concern about. steve: pastor, to your earlier point jared kushner is passionate about this because his own father went to prison for 18 months and he would fly from new york down to alabama, according
3:34 am
to one article, every weekend to visit with his dad. so he understands what's involved. and you say he is passionate. you just touched on recidivism, that's one of the biggest problems is people go to prison and then, they get out and they wind up going back. >> yes. and so this is a problem that we're looking at. there are a number of solutions on the table. once again, this is not the first meeting that's going to be had. maybe it's the first one made public to this extent. there have been several ongoing meetings. it's something that we really want to look at to find solutions to once again reintegrate former prisoners into american society so that they become productive members of society. steve: how do you do that? >> there are a number of solutions that are on the table. skills training, social programs, opportunities that may exist and then, you know, the nature of the crime oftentimes dictates the rate of recidivism.
3:35 am
nonviolent offenses, some have been crimes of passion. we are looking at all of it is he bringing in experts all over the country that have been involved in these kind of endeavors for years. it's a little think tank of the best and brightest that can be assembled to try to do it as the best for this situation. ainsley: pastor, why did you get involved in this? and what is your message for the president? >> i have to be honest, i have three nephews all three of them in the penitentiary right now. all three for nonviolent crimes. some of them have gotten caught in that cycle. some of them went back to prison because of technical violations of their probation. different things like that. so all of these are being looked at. but in the black community, this hits close to home. a number of -- almost every family -- a lot of families in the urban community have someone who have been touched by this -- by. i do happen to be black.
3:36 am
[laughter] and family members that have been touched by. this so it's personal to me as well. brian: pastor, real quick, the president said on the campaign trail to minorities in the black community what the hell do you have to lose? and essentially unemployment is down. but we have not seen a major rollout of any type of urban initiative. is it coming. >> it's on the way, i promise you. i will be back on "fox & friends," you guys will get the skinny first. there's a huge urban initiative that the president and this administration is spearheading that's going to be very beneficial for the urban community. now, the urban community is not the majority black as most people would think, latinos and hispanics make up 60% of the urban community but there is going to be a huge initiative public/private partnership going forth that's going to be very beneficial for this nation. and this president and this administration is very, very proactive in it and very aggressive about it as well. steve: well, have you got a busy day at the white house. pastor, thank you very much
3:37 am
for starting your day with us here at "fox & friends." ainsley: pastor darrell scott from cleveland, ohio. god bless you. let's hand it over to jillian she has headlines for us. jillian: the mysterious disappearance of a missing college student is now a homicide investigation. investigators in los angeles discovering 19-year-old blaze bernstein's body at the very same park where he vanished one week ago. his parents, as you can imagine, are devastated. >> so many friends and family that have reached out to us. it's unbelievable what you people have done for us and our son and his memory. >> bernstein vanished after he was supposed to meet a friend in the park. police do not consider that person to be a suspect. overnight his classmates modeling a candlelight vigil at the university of pennsylvania. president trump sneaky diane for releasing the fusion gps testimony. why did she make it public? well, in part because she has a cold. >> the one regret i have is
3:38 am
that i should have spoken with senator grassley before. and i don't make an excuse but i have had a bad cold and maybe that slowed down my mental facilities a little bit. jillian: there have you it. democratic lawmaker also coming under fire for working with fusion gps, the firm behind the dossier to redact large sections of the transcript. that undercuts her argument that the release was done in the name of transparency. all right. if you are not watching and just listening, come to your tv screen for this one. the virginia man finds out the hard way his entire driveway is a sheet of black ice. watch. ainsley: oh my god. this home security footage going viral to the tune of 40 million views after the man's wife posted on facebook in the caption she wrote just another day heading to the office.

the bill go in to effect july 1st. brian: let's go down to down to steve and the judge. ainsley: in a fish bowl. steve: whether to renew a controversial surveillance program backed by the white house crucial measure in protecting all of us against terrorism. judge napolitano says it puts the constitutional privacy rights of every american at risk. explain that. judge: it's a very dangerous program. look, in the nixon era when president nixon used the fbi and the cia to spy on political opponents, the response to that was fight, is a foreign intelligence surveillance act which said no spying unless done through a warrant. except it permitted warrants from mass bulk spying, that is spying on huge numbers of people. steve: when they do every day. >> zip code, area code, a customer list. one of the warrants was for all customers of verizon. that's 115 million people. without any suspicion or allegations against any of
3:46 am
them. that program is about to expire on january 19th. the president wants it renewed. but he wants it renewed even stronger. he wants it renewed so that if a conversation innocently picked up by domestic spies reveals a criminal act. steve: unrelated to terrorism. >> correct. totally unrelated to terrorism, that that information can be used in the prosecution of the crime. that violates the whole purpose of the fourth amendment, which is to prevent suspicionless surveillance and to deny the use of that evidence to the police. steve: i know the house freedom caucus doesn't like this whole program because so many americans are targeted, whether we know it or not. but for the white house to be behind the part that will open more americans up, that's surprising for the administration because it was the fisa and essentially this whole program that got donald trump in trouble with the russian stuff. not his fault.
3:47 am
judge: in my column this morning @foxnews.com and elsewhere i did my best to explain the history of this and why it's against the constitution. at the end i said i'm scratching my head. i don't understand why donald trump is in favor of this. his whoa woes began with foreign surveillance and unconstitutional domestic surveillance of him before he was the president of the united states. now he wants to institutionalize it. mr. president, this is not the way to go. spying is valid to find the foreign agents among us. but it's got to be based on suspicion and not an area code. steve: judge, it's got to be based on fact. our lead story today was about how apparently that dirty dossier filled up with stuff just made up apparently used in part to get a fisa warrant to spy on president trump, then candidate trump and all of his supreme. judge: because they knew the court is issuing these warrants and it shouldn't be. i don't know where it's going to go. senator rand paul says is he going to filibuster it.
3:48 am
steve: you would support that. judge: how long he can stand in the well of the senate. there are democrats who oppose it liberal democrats and libertarian republicans who oppose it. we'll see what happens. steve: one other story that is making news and that is that apparently huma and anthony weiner are calling off their divorce. they are putting it on hold. judge: don't tell me they are reconciling. steve: no, no, no. they say for the privacy of the child and stuff like that. i had a lawyer send me something yesterday and wondered whether or not they were calling off the divorce for spousal testimony privilege if she were indicted. judge: if she is indicted, she can prevent him from testifying against her. steve: if they are married. judge: so long as they are married. that may be a legal reason. they may have practical reasons for it i don't know where he is in jail but is he in jail. you can't manage your litigation while you are in jail. we will see where this one goes. steve: no kidding. thank you very much.
3:49 am
judge: i'm off to d.c. for bret baier and company tonight. steve: we will watch you. no wall, no daca. >> we need the wall for security. we need the wall for safety. we need the wall for stopping drugs from pouring in. any solution has to include the wall because without the wall it all doesn't work. steve: okay. so what happens next? is he any closer to a deal? we will tell you what we know. it was new york citi' deadliest fire in over 20 years. our "fox & friends" viewers have stepped up in a huge way. father jonathan morris asked for your help and he got it he is here with an update. that's next.
3:50 am
now i have nicoderm cq. the nicoderm cq patch with unique extended release technology helps prevent your urge to smoke all day. it's the best thing that ever happened to me. every great why needs a great how.

3:52 am
3:53 am
ainsley: you, our "fox & friends" viewers, of course, are stepping up in a mighty way to help the victims of the deadly fire at an apartment building in new york up in the bronx. this was fox news religion contributor father jonathan morris on our show over the weekend. >> the families are waiting outside my door saying i need help. i haven't worked. these are people, like you said, poorest congressional district in the united states of america in the south bronx. they are not working because they are taking care of their families and they're spread out in shelters all over the city. it's a very serious situation and we need help. steve: father jonathan is on the couch three days later with an update. after that appeal people opened their hearts and wallets. >> incredible. two minutes on a sunday morning on "fox & friends"
3:54 am
people have come n a major way. and what we're doing is we are splitting this money based on need. not just giving it out with 27 families and doing case management assessment of each one of those families and saying what is your need and looking what they have received from other places. what their situation is. and it's so efficient compared to, i would say government organization, i brought a little leadership of our community together, of our neighborhood, and we have oversight from catholic charities to make sure every penny is going to these families. brian: tell everyone about this. how did it start and how many families are affected? >> so there are 27 units these are basically all first generation immigrants. little microcosm of the bronx from so many countries. hearted working american citizens. and the first floor, a child, a 3-year-old child was playing with the stove and the whole thing went up like a chimney.
3:55 am
and -- i had the blessing of being able to be right there because i live there with the families as they identify the bodies. it was something you can't believe. ainsley: how many died? >> 13. three still in critical condition in the hospital. ainsley: your parish is three blocks away. you know these families. when we hear about giving, when our viewers hear about giving, you never know where that money is going to go and how it's going to be used. we love you, we trust you. you are on our church. you are a man of the church and of faith. do you need more money? how much do you need? how much have you raised? >> break down $225,000 by 27, that's $7,500. that's on average. one family lost five members of their family. imagine five burials. another family i just did the funeral for just the other day lost a 7 month old. and the grand mother who was taking care of that child. so, of course, we will make sure every penny, people just have to look up. go to go fund me.com.
3:56 am
look up bronx fire victims. go fund me.com. and we will make sure every single penny gets to these families. steve: father jonathan, what does it say to you that some people from around the world who are watching never met those people, never been to the bronx will open their wallets? >> most people are looking for an opportunity to do something really special. and you guys have done it. and it's really -- it is so inspiring. you know, one last thing i might say is in talking to these families and dealing with -- of their suffering, i always ask them and this is something i have learned just in the last few days, would you trade never having known or loved these people for not suffering what you do -- what you are suffering right now? everyone says i would never trade it i am so grateful i came to know and to love them even though it's very painful now. ainsley: if you can only afford a dollar. give a dollar. $5, $20. steve: go to our site friends@foxnews.com
3:57 am
foxnews.com and we'll link to that thomas homan will be joining us, stuart varney and kellyanne conway. got lots to talk about so stick around. we'll be right back. ♪ rolled my windows down and cruise ♪ who wouldn't want a chance for another...? who'd say no to a...? who wouldn't want a chance to live longer. opdivo (nivolumab). over 40,000 patients have been prescribed opdivo immunotherapy. opdivo can cause your immune system to attack normal organs and tissues in your body and affect how they work. this may happen during or after treatment has ended, and may become serious and lead to death. see your doctor right away if you experience new or worsening cough; chest pain; shortness of breath; diarrhea; severe stomach pain or tenderness; severe nausea or vomiting; extreme fatigue; constipation; excessive thirst or urine; swollen ankles; loss of appetite; rash; itching; headache; confusion; hallucinations; muscle or joint pain; flushing;

as one of those workers, i'm proud to bring you gillette quality for less, because nobody can beat the men and women of gillette. gillette - the best a man can get. steve: there have been some suspicions among republican lawmakers, was that dossier used to spy on that man, donald trump, and his associates? now we know the answer is yes. >> people within law enforcement are concerned that they were using in dossier to find a way to look into the trump campaign. >> congress is full steam ahead to determine the future of the obama era daca program. >> any solution has to include the wall because, without the wha wall it all doesn't work. brian: all eyes on the controversial surveillance vote today by the house to review the nsa spying program. >> spying is valid to find the foreign agents among us but it's got to be based on suspicion and not an area code. >> security footage going viral virginia man finds out

4:02 am
apparently. look at that as santa looks on. ainsley: it's okay. what's scary imagine that feeling it's like when you are driving your car and it's icy outside and have you ever done the spin around and you don't know when you are going to stop. this guy is going down and there are cars driving. brian: unless you are brian boitano everyone is going to have that same reaction when you walk out in dress shoes. ainsley: he probably doesn't care. his wife might have shared it one person and that person shared it with someone else. brian: going to be a tough date night this week. steve: i disagree. i think, brian, that he loves the attention and everybody he knows and everybody in his family knows is talking about hey, that's herb or whatever the guy's name is we are trying right now to track that man down to bring him to the show. ainsley: it could have ended a lot worse. brian: absolutely. if you are in a neighborhood and see a man wrapped around his mailbox, please wake him and tell him to come on the show. steve: meanwhile today on
4:03 am
the show our top story is. this we have wondered about this and now sara carter, the great investigative reporter is telling us that apparently the fbi did use that dirty dossier to go in front of a fisa judge and then wind up getting permission by the federal government to spy on donald trump and the trump associates. if this is true, this is a massive scandal. think about it. the party in power uses the levers of the federal government to spy on their political opponent. that is gigantic. brian: here is sara carter last night. >> i have spoken to a number of sources. one senior law enforcement official. and another in the doj. and the dossier was absolutely used as part of the fbi's ability to gain a warrant to basically spy on members of the trump campaign. we know, coming from the mouths of members, senior members of the fbi, who
4:04 am
testify, both comey and mccabe that the only part of the dossier that they were able to confirm that was actually factual was that carter page had actually traveled to moscow. everything else on the dossier apparently they did not talk about that. they did not confirm. there are a number of sources that are alarmed about this, particularly people within law enforcement who are concerned that they were using this dossier to find a way to look into the trump campaign. brian: so ron desantis and jim jordan are saying, look, in light of what senator feinstein released because she had a cold without telling anybody, let's let everything out there. it's time to let all members see all of this. christopher steele wanted -- excuse me, kessler, glen kessler wanted all his things out about fusion gps. he got what he wanted. now, the rest of congress saying couldn't you just put it all out there? let the american people see everything that we see. steve: as long as it doesn't mess up the investigation. ainsley: only complaint
4:05 am
about dianne feinstein releasing all of this is the way she did it without telling. brian: put it this way. grassley is the chairman of the committee. he said it is not good because we want to call other people out and maybe bring other people in. now are they going to say because you have a confidential agreement behind closed doors and you just know that any ranking member can just put it out, there what's the message to the next man or woman you want to bring in. ainsley: at the same time it's allowing americans to get answers we have all been asking for. steve: sure, ultimately at the end of the investigation we are are going to find out, it won't be long before the department of justice inspector general comes out with his findings and we have heard in the past that there are going to be some, you know -- some heads are going to roll over at the fbi. also, and the department of justice. also, according to sara carter, there are more examples of fisa abuse coming out where somebody used the fisa courts to spy on people in a fashion that they probably should not have. ainsley: sources said that
4:06 am
information is going to come out in the next week. the president is talking about this and says it's all a witch-hunt. >> there is collusion, but it's really with the democrats and the russians. far more than it is with the republicans and the russians. so the witch-hunt continues. there has been no collusion between the trump campaign and russians or trump and russians. no collusion. it's a democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election that, frankly, the democrats should have won because they have such a tremendous advantage in the electoral college. so it was brought up for that reason. brian: mark meadows last night says he is calling for every member of congress to have access to not only the fisa applications but all the other outstanding work chairman nunes has put forth in gathering documents. they haven't seen it. so, this brings up another thing. what was samantha power doing unmasking as u.n. ambassador unmasking
4:07 am
everyone possible. what was the reason you put forth michael flynn talking. who else was unmavericked? we don't know because we don't know what robert mueller is using not using. is this just a side show to something else he is working on? steve: the good news is the answers seem to be coming out. i think we will get to the bottom of it. it's going to take some time but nonetheless people are starting to talk and dots are getting connected. brian: before we leave this, i would say the thing that stuck with me is, the president in front of the norwegian leader said the country is being hurt by. this the international perception of this and distraction to my administration is real. and i'm sure he didn't revel in saying that 11 months in, this is a distraction. so whatever you think of the trump administration, they are being hampered by. this and there seems to be much more to the case than what everybody thought was there last spring when robert mueller took over. ainsley: bipartisan senate group also talking about immigration. they say they are very close to a deal. the president drawing a hard line.
4:08 am
he said we're not giving you daca unless you give us the wall. listen would you be willing to sign immigration deal that would not include the border wall or would that be a red line for you. >> no. >> no. >> it's got to include the wall. we need the wall for security. weave need the wall for safety. we need the wall for stopping the drugs from pouring. in any solution has to include the wall because without the wall it all doesn't work. you can look at other instances. look at what happened in israel. they put up the wall. they solved a very major problem. we need the wall. we have to have the wall for security purposes. security is number one. and so the answer is have to have the wall. steve: the answer is in congress right now he has made it very clear as you look at chuck and nancy flanking the president in that photo montage, no wall, no daca. ainsley, to your point, reportedly senators are close to some sort of bipartisan agreement. but there are a number of democrats who are getting
4:09 am
push back from their base saying, hey, don't give away too much stuff. you know, if you are going to do the daca deal, they are worried that they are going to do something about change of plea migration and also the visa lottery program. but the democrats in the senate say they are okay reigning those programs. in where does it end? up that's all part of the negotiation. brian: two weeks ago we told you when the tax deal was done there was word that bipartisan senators working under the wire trying to come up with a bipartisan solution. that solution is now emerging. what we saw two days ago is more on that. and the leadership out there is about to announce it and the democrats that steve just referred to are pushing bang on their leadership. the headline in politico is mutiny. if you are a leader, be a leader. do what you think is right and you can't get anything done, conservatives hate and this liberals hate this. but you can't get anything done unless there's some sense of compromise. we haven't had compromise in
4:10 am
15 years. steve: so let's see what happens. keep in mind, the senate can pass something, but then it's got to go into the very conservative house of representatives where it's got to get enough votes. and then will it be something that the president can get behind? ainsley: it's called negotiation. the democrats want one thing. democrats want another. come together, work together. make it happen. steve: we will see. ainsley: hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. happy thursday to you at home. we do have a fox news alert to get to. do you want free health insurance? get a job, go to school or volunteer. that's the message from president trump for people who use or apply for medicaid. new guidelines opening the door for states to cut off benefits to those who don't have an approved reason. this has never before happened in the 50 year history of the program. more than 74 million people are enrolled in medicaid. also breaking right now, overnight, the air force deploying three nuclear capable b 2 stealth bombers to guam meant to sent a strong message to north korea. these brand new pictures show the bombers on their way to the u.s. territory.

200 airmen also deployed to guam. this comes just a day after vice president mike pence vowed that the white house would put maximum pressure on north korea as he prepares to lead the u.s. olympic delegates in south korea next month. an urgent travel warning for u.s. tourists. the state department issuing a do not travel advisory for five crime ridden states in mexico, giving them the same threat level as countries like syria and a afghanistan. the states are considered hot spots for drug cartel activity, trafficking routes, car jackings and robberies. is this shopper fir real? get it? a woman caught returning her christmas tree to cosco, 10 days after christmas. she is demanding a full refund because well, it was dead. a man in line behind her posting this photo on facebook as she waited at the store's counter in los angeles, california. incredibly the woman walked away with a full refund. have you guys ever heard of something like that? steve: absolutely. i was at a home depot once when somebody returned about
4:12 am
a 20-year-old water heater and he had the receipt it's the same idea. people return stuff that is way past the sell by date. brian: if there is no rule on it i bet you the guy with get money back. steve: got to be within 90 days. jillian: my mom is the queen of returns you got to try. steve: your mother would support this? jillian: probably. ainsley: have you 90 days. you buy at the beginning of december technically you could do it. you are not supposed to return something that's used. jillian: right. steve: there you go. ainsley: let us know what you think. send emails. have you ever done this? steve: got to try according to jillian's mom. brian: return the wedding dress the day after the wedding. ainsley: as long as the tag is still on it tuck the tag in. steve: i bet it's been done. brian: limiting free speech to just one hour a day. ainsley: plus a real life bonnie and clyde.

4:18 am
we have becomes a my grandmother likes to say we have become so open-minded right now in our society that our brains have fallen out. the corollary out there goes that there is nothing in the entirety of human history that even approaches the level of evil of our president. so, no treatment of a supporter of our president is too bad. >> so you talk about being 20 years old and came out as gay and your family was fully supportive. now you say when you came out and republican, that's when you started losing friends. you actually say supporting donald trump according to others, the people that were in your life, is nothing less than satan embodied. so how do you explain the anger thrown your direction just because you have a political point of view and a candidate that you support? how do you explain it? >> right, well, you know, i think we're currently seeing a crisis which marks the
4:19 am
party of the democrats high ground. over the course of history parties change. remember when abraham lincoln ended slavery weigh as republican. my dad switched from being a republican to the democrat in the late 1960s because the democrats republicans were moving in the wrong direction and the democrats were underdog racial equality. now insidious intolerance is which is for diversity of thought it manifests itself of oppression of free speech of the highest order and cloaked in morality. by promulgating people capable supporting our president which is complete rubbish they claim to be motivated by righteousness, but the only problem is that there is no truth to that claim. ainsley: so why do you support the president? >> i support the president
4:20 am
for [inaudible] of reasons. i think that without obama, we would never have had trump i think in order to understand the rise of donald trump, you need to understand how much certain members of our country were harmed by the obama administration. but that said, i'm really in awe of donald trump on his own. i think that he has, from an economic standpoint, taken what was a gigantic dumpster fire of an economy and actually successfully put it back on track in such a short period of time. but i think across the boards he has just been outstanding. i think he is probably the greatest president that our country has ever seen. brian: adam, what you are experiencing is the exact reason why nobody understood the way donald trump won the election. nobody thought about it, they saw the backlash, they did vote for him and they might just do it again. adam lavine, thanks so much. ainsley: thank you. >> thanks for having me guys, i really appreciate

that is how many great americans will soon dine with the president. the trump campaign is offering sweepstakes down in palm beach, florida to have dinner with the commander-in-chief. it is a fundraiser. you do not have to donate in order to enter. steve: all right. meanwhile in other news, south korea has credited president trump for a rare meeting with north korean officials this week. >> the accomplishments of south/north dialogue was largely credited to president trump. i would like to express gratitude to him. steve: does this prove the president's tough talk is in our favor here to weigh in is "fox & friends" co-host pete hegseth. may be about the olympics but they will be at a table talking. pete: they have talked before. it's not the entirety of this credit would go to the
4:26 am
administration. it's been two years. it didn't have to happen and didn't have to happen this way. north korea is clearly feeling the pressure because of the tough talk, "fir, fire ad fury, little rocket man. tough approach has mattered. pushing out into the bloodstream if they launch again we may strike proactively, one of their sites one of kim jong un's homes one of their military facilities make it clear this is a counters punch bloody nose they don't want to trigger all out war. ainsley: how does the enemy respond to that. pete: that's a difficult part of this calculus north korea is not a country we understand how think would hit hard. talks alone won't work. this is a good thing. i'm glad south korea is realizing they have a true ally in president trump. they are still headed like a truck down the freeway toward nuclear weapons. we have to do something now. brian: what i think is encouraging now front page
4:27 am
of the "new york times" say china is crark cracking down on the company caught giving oil to the north korea. pete: i hope so. have very little faith china has. we have to be aggressive with them if we are going to get anything done in south korea. steve: white house has put out a statement and it is hey, the country of iran has a bunch of political prisoners, americans political prisoners they have got to let them go. watch this. she said. this iran's regime claims to support democracy but when its own people express aspirations for better lives it once again shows true brutal nature that from sarah huckabee sanders. pete: night and day from the obama administration. this is a massive opportunity just like the obama administration had in 2009. we are taking the exact opposite approach channeling what the people want. which isn't just frustration over their economic situation. it's repression. utter repression under
4:28 am
theocracy. steve: iranians swept up after protests. pete: up to 4,000 of them. 21 dead. could be under reported as well. one dead in prison. so we don't know -- we can only imagine what's being done to december dissidents we know what these type of regimes do. i would love to see this administration go down the path of decertification of the iran deal. big road block coming up in the numbers couple of days. they have to recertify time and time again. steve: can we get the money back? pete: we can't get the money back but the moral high ground. talk about the people fighting the regime. recertify this deal and find out who they are. ainsley: so tough and he talks tough and not afraid to, you know, even called north korea's leader the rocket man. what does the military think about this. pete: they love that they want that it's not just talk. then they get their hands untied where they are. so they actually do their job. especially your special operators who are at the front lines of so many places. brian: general mcmaster
4:29 am
wants the deal to stay in place with everything else going on and the europeans have done nothing even after the uprisings to crack down on iran. even tell them to moderate their blow back. pete: i think general mcmaster is wrong. i think europe is wrong. when america stands on the high ground of who we are and what we represent and we clarify the fact that the world cannot live under the blackmail of a nuclear iran. and israel can't live there, we can't live there. you have to do something about it otherwise, north korea is the lessen of what iran will be. they will have the capability and they will hold it over us and the region forever. brian: they are helping each other. no doubt about it. pete: of course. brian: also fascinating to see that we are publishing the figures about how much iran is financing syria to really foment the unrest. that's what caused this to happen. people saying you are giving all our money that we have sanction relief. you are giving it to these other terror nations. support terrorism and i can't get a blanket or band aid. pete: did they really think it was going to trickle down to the people.

4:37 am
what i said was sanction jerry cities is a public safety threat. it's an officer safety threat. what i have asked the department of justice to do. i have had a conversation with the attorney general. i have ha conversation with his attorney saying, look, i want you to look at the sanctuary cities. i want you to tell me in your opinion at the department of justice are they violating federal law? one statute asked him to look at 8 usc 1824 alien smuggling statute. talking about knowingly shielding and harboring illegal aliens from enforcement. i haved asked the doj to look at every sanctuary city differently. ask them to look at the facts on the ground. if we are denied access to a jail we know there is an illegal alien in that jail that's been arrested for a crime, if we are denied information, if we are denied access, is that a violation of federal statute? and if it is, let's hold somebody accountable. steve: you are saying whoever that public officials it could be town council the mayor a lot of people. they should be held personally responsible for
4:38 am
the bad acts whoever nothingly vital a federal law should be held accountable. every city operates differently. that's what the department of justice is looking at. i'm providing data and information on sanctuary cities and what access i do or more importantly what being he's i don't have. we will take action based on their findings. brian: let's keep politics and negotiation out of it. what's your greatest concern from the border patrol perspective and for border enforcement perspective about a compromise revolve being around damascus a can a. if you are going to allow the kids who were brought here as young -- as infants against, you know, by their parents illegally. if we are going to allow them to say. what's your greatest concern if it's passed? >> look, i hear a lot of talk about a clean daca bill. let's just pass daca and not worry about all this other stuff like the wall and border security. look, we need underline causes of illegal immigration. for instance right now we have a lot of family units been increase of family

whiteness. here with his take is a student at that college, brooklyn college campus reform.org correspondent vido dejohn any. >> what is she saying? >> mayor to come crazy is that the outcome is going to be usually based on your talents and personal performance which is how life usually goes. so she is saying that white people use this system, this method of using personal talent to do better in math class. now, i don't know what she is talking about because personally i do terrible in math and people i know do bad in math. i don't see how there is another way to go about this. she is coming across as racist. she is saying that black students and other minority students just aren't good enough as white people to use their natural talent to learn in the classroom or do basic other things. this is the same concept that we see with affirmative action. so then you see a white

5:12 am
over illegally, we have to have a mechanism to remove them. this catch-and-release, this catch-and-release system doesn't work because the person is already in the interior, but this also has to deal with drugs, drugs pouring over the southern border, drugs coming into our country through the ports and through the mails. this president makes it very clear we need to be a nation with borders. you know who they conferred with to decide what to do next? the people at border, mr. homan, the people whose job every day to put their own lives on the line, their own health in jeopardy at border. there are brave men and women who feel they are there without the tools and resources they need. we're listening to them and our security experts what they need to make this work. ainsley: we as americans have the right to know who is coming in. >> that's right. ainsley: we need to make sure we know their backgrounds. steve: sign the guest book. >> it is common sense, folks. donald trump won a lot of crossover votes because of that very issue.

that bonus. that is gigantic. as of this morning, before we got the walmart bonus, one million 39,000 americans were getting a bonus. now it is 2,039,000 americans will get a bonus. that is what the script is telling me, the initial report is telling me. brian: biggest fear for people wanting to see if the tax bill will work, if the corporations would hoard their money they now can keep because the tax rate went from 39 to 21. >> the criticism was that you would simply pass this along to stockholders. they would get a bigger dividend or there would be a stock buyback. the stockholders would get the benefit. clearly it is employees and customers who are getting benefits as well. by the way before the walmart announcement, we had waste management chiming in 2,000-dollar bonuses for 34,000 employees. steve: fantastic.
5:19 am
stuart, look at company like jack-in-the-box, the fast-food service company where the ceo says, look, this minimum wage thing that is being mandated is killing us. so we're thinking about robots. >> yes. this is the exact opposite of the pass-through tax cuts, isn't it? here you have got mandatory higher minimum wage. when you raise the cost of anything, you use less of it. so that is what the fast-food chains are doing like jack-in-the-box, replacing workers with technology. red robin, for example getting rid of all busboys at 570 locations because of higher minimum wage. if you mandate -- ainsley: busboys, how will they clean the restaurant? >> that is what they'ring doing. tim horton, that is another chain, they are reducing benefits to employees because they have got to pay them more. look, you mandate higher wages, and you get fewer benefits for workers. brian: not a free market. >> give corporation as tax cut
5:20 am
people get bonuses they win. brian: if you have a responsible ceo. what people don't understand is, you're not just raising wages of entry level people, everybody wants a wage. if i'm making $12 an hour, minimum wage goes up to 15, what if you were making 15, they want 17 and 21. the whole workforce gets more expensive. >> wasn't the expression, america need as raise, wasn't that the expression the last elections early part of next year, now they're getting it thanks to the trump tax cuts. steve: all of those bonuses million members of walmart are getting they will spend it in the neighborhood. >> democrats want to take the bonuses away? will they run in november on raising taxes? should we do that? i don't think so. brian: stuart varney, we'll see if you give your panel a raise from nine to noon. how much you pay them. have a major announcement on your show on fbn. ainsley: we'll have them on your show to find out if you gave them a raise. >> i have no response. steve: don't blame you. doesn't get any better than this, soldier father coming home

to say in the country with concern conditions on voting restrictions what did they say democrats. we don't want that? i thought it was about compassion letting people in country? it is about power. they lost middle class, calling them deplorables telling them they didn't build that they're replacing them women my grant votes. simple as that. steve: a number of democrats who are bense what we're talking about today were absolutely for it. but again, dan, you have a number of strong conservatives are saying if the president comes up with some sort of compromise that approaches in their estimation amnesty, we're out. we supported him but we're out on that. >> yeah, listen this is going to be a tough one because they need democrat votes. they need 60 to get this through, if there is any move on immigration. the problem i have, daca recipients are here. the best deal they are going to get, i'm not for amnesty, that is crystal clear, my position, but best deal to get 60, ending

>> yeah, what i really liked about this, one thing about negotiations hour you are. you know, you can't be trump, i can't be you, hour you are but the message that i liked, what the president did was to several levels, number one, he said look, throw whatever you want at me, i'm teflon. got no problem with it. i think that was message to the media who trashes him every day, look, you guys try to get me off the game, i've been through this my whole life, knock yourself out, this is the way it is going to be, this is the way it should be. steve: i think hell froze over, because that day cnn had nice things to say about the president's performance there. people were captivated about 55 minutes, we essentially saw the sausage being made, should he do that a lot or do it every once in a while because a little bit goes a long way? >> i think that you sport of sprinkle it here and there for very relevant issues. we agree, steve, this
