tv   America Reports With John Roberts Sandra Smith  FOX News  February 8, 2021 10:00am-12:00pm PST

10:00 am
the boss he needs to be fired. nothing brings us together like sending a guy from new jersey to kansas wearing cowboy boots. give me a break. >> i love that. thank you. here is "america's newsroom." ♪ ♪ >> busy afternoon on capitol hill, former president trump's legal team filing a brief ahead of his second impeachment trial while democrats look to move quickly on pushing through president biden's $1.9 trillion covid relief bill. hi and welcome to "america reports," i'm john roberts. >> sandra: good afternoon. i'm sandra smith. democrats are eyeing a short impeachment trial to focus on their massive relief plan. here is nancy on what is at stake. >> if we can get past the division and the distraction, i said earlier this week i felt
10:01 am
like i was in an episode of jerry springer. the people, they're so much we can do right now. we have to get her kids back in school. they're so much work to be done. >> john: south carolina senator tim scott joins us in moments. robert wolf is also standing by. >> sandra: hot team coverage, mike emanuel on the hill, mike tobin and freezing cold chicago. >> john: peter doocy joining us from the north lawn. >> good afternoon. it's only been a few weeks since president-elect, at the time, biden promised checks for people who are hurting the covid pandemic. even though that hasn't happened yet, house democrats up the street are beginning to roll out or preparing to roll out a proposal for $3,000 checks for families and need below a certain threshold. that would be $3,000 per year, per child, or a one year payment
10:02 am
spread out. i asked the president about this a few minutes ago. >> the president talked about this on the campaign trail and the importance of credits to help working families and ensure they can make it, this proposal is emergency funding. it's a central priority of the first legislative proposal to cut it in half. and that is why they included the child tax credit. that's emergency funding and something that will help people get through this. >> no price tag on it yet, but they publish something that's forthcoming. $3,000 per child ages 6-17, benefits would diminish once you get above $75,000 per household.
10:03 am
$150,000 per year and the payments would be monthly starting in july. another big issue here is the keystone pipeline, day one president biden siding the executive order that stopped construction on the keystone pipeline. a friend of his, head of the sea il had an interview where he said he wishes that biden would have had a plan to get those people, union workers into jobs. i asked him about that as well. >> international union of north america, it will cost union jobs and 10,000 projected construction jobs. >> what he also indicated in the same interview was that president biden has proposed a climate plan for infrastructure and laid out a plan to not only create millions of union jobs but also help tackle the crisis. >> there are many times during the transition when
10:04 am
president-elect biden promised to be the strongest union president, the most pro-union president, this is the really first comment from a union leader about that promise. >> john: jobs are being lost today, one can they get their new green jobs? he didn't have an answer for that. >> no. >> sandra: thank you, john and peter. donald trump impeachment lawyers have submitted this brief say the effort to convict the former president after he left office is nothing more than clinical theater. his second trial will begin this time tomorrow. mike emanuel was live in washington for us. what can you tell us? >> concluding the brief arguing the senate should dismiss, this is clearly know what the framers wanted or the constitution allowed. writing "instead of acting to seal a nation or focus on prosecuting the lawbreakers was
10:05 am
from the capital, the speaker of the house try to harness the chaos in the moment for their own political gain." the senate majority leader says plans for the trial are nearly done. >> we are finalizing a resolution that's been agreed to by all parties. house managers, former presidents council, leader mcconnell and i will ensure a fair, honest, bipartisan senate impeachment trial of donald trump. >> a senior advisor tells me if it is based on words, democrats should be aware. >> if we were to go through the list of what democrats will be comprising this jury, we would have to impeach happy democratic caucus as well. one democrat with the trump legal team is expected to mention maxine waters, she told supporters we see cabinet members in a restaurant, in a
10:06 am
crowd and tell them they're not welcome anywhere. >> if you look at the words i used, the strongest thing i said was, tell them they're not welcome, talk to them. i didn't say, go and fight, i didn't say that. i can't make that statement. >> i should note house impeachment managers are at their brief saying, "the house will establish a trial that president trump merits conviction and disqualification with any office of honor, trust or profit under the united states. >> sandra: mike emanuel and washington, thank you. >> john: for more on this let's bring an tim scott of south carolina who sits on the senate finance, health and education committee. a couple of weeks back you voted in favor of rand paul's motion that this coming trial is unconstitutional. does that mean you will not vote to convict the president?
10:07 am
>> john, the president is simply not guilty so that's why i'm in the position i'm in. i was in the chamber when the writers were coming over. i was taking my jacket off, my tie off, rolling my sleeves up. the chances of me understanding and appreciating the severity of the situation is 100%. the one person i don't blame is president trump. i don't blame the nonviolent protesters outside. i blame the individuals coming in the chamber, the building. the democrats should put the blame where it stands, where it should be. it does not have to do with the president who said go peacefully to protest. >> sandra: you heard the words and he don't believe anything he said and cited his supporters to storm the capital? >> i do believe his words were not helpful as a relates to having folks gather at the capital, but i do not believe his words, and cited a
10:08 am
insurrection against this country. that is what this is about. that did not happen with his words, think about it this way, the preplanning of the event started the day before when they planted bombs with the dnc and rnc. that was before he said a single word. putting all the blame on president trump for the insurrection is wrong in my opinion. there is clear evidence that the planning that happened before the day, literally you can back up and see that planning. completely happened before anything was spoken from our president, president trump. >> john: we have some idea with how the attorneys will defend him at trial, saying this is political theater, that the word fight was used in the figurative site, force was in reference to space force. we understand his attorneys are going to rewind the tape and play video from democrats including maxine waters and what
10:09 am
they were saying. what's your perspective? >> i do think, it should be good for the gander. look at the comments of maxine waters, she told folks to go aggressively towards folks and tell them they're not wanted, sitting in restaurants, scary propositions for those folks. think about the words of bernie sanders that were misinterpreted by his supporters and led to the shooting of steve scalise. think about the comments with aoc and so many others who seem to be inciting violence. that is covered as political speech. not a big deal if you are democrat, but if you are a republican, the standard seems to be different. listening to what chuck schumer said about fair and honest trials, when the judge of the trial, senator leahy he has already said he's guilty and that those who came into the capital should be felons, there is no way to have a fair trial. it's hard to have an honest
10:10 am
trial when all hundred members have been on the record for taking a position for or against the process itself. it's hard for me to think that we shouldn't be spending more time debating and trying to defeat the coronavirus package. we should be debating more about the child tax credit and the proposals coming out of the white house. we should be debating why we are not increasing minimum wage, but we should increase the minimum wage by increasing employment which puts more pressure on the bottom and the wages go up. these are the things we should be doing for the american people. not wasting their money and time. >> sandra: you been standing up for your kids in school choice. you look at this massive stimulus package that's been laid out for the american people and it's amazing to look at president obama's former economic advisor saying, don't do it. you will cause the highest
10:11 am
inflation. this is too big. it includes funding for schools. what happened for those schools who refused to open their doors for in class learning even when the teachers had been vaccinated? should they be receiving any funds? >> i think the answer is clear, unequivocally not. if you are not willing to put the kids back and schools, what should we give you more money? we provided $82 billion to open schools and frankly those same schools are not open. think about it this way, kids today, poor kids, learning losses happening, developmental delays and there is an article pushing to reopen schools because suicide are up. the consequences for not reopening schools is devastating. what is interesting, private schools, catholic schools with pennies on the dollar, most of them are open, open for the kids
10:12 am
to come back. and yet for a country that's $775 billion plus the pandemic resources, we can't figure out how to open schools. by the way, they had a snow day for virtual schools! there is something really lost and the focus is not on kids, it's on adults. we should help single mothers go back to work. we can help are, grow our economy by focusing on the right things. >> john: we are expecting some moves in chicago this weekend obviously a busy week in the senate. senator tim scott, south carolina, great to spend time with you. be to thank you senator. speaking of which, the cdc set to release the updated guidance on schools reopening some point this week, the approaches has buried. as we all know quite widely.
10:13 am
four states have their schools opened, five states and washington, d.c., are partially open. mike tobin is standing by where public schools are announcing a plume in every deal with the teachers union of there. what can you tell us? >> there could be a deal that gets chicago, public school teachers back in the classroom. announcing what they call the breakthrough yesterday. >> these past 11 months have been a whirlwind for our city. that's putting it mildly. the schools reopening, we have taken a momentous step in our journey of renewal and recovery. these schools are the spines for our city. >> the teachers union says not so fast, say there is no agreement yet, what we have is a framework. the agreement needs to be
10:14 am
approved by the house of delegates and ratified by vote, but essentially it allows them to return if teachers have access to vaccine and there are thresholds to shut down if the virus urges. things are less optimistic in philadelphia where they told educators to stay home citing things like poor ventilation. >> admits the global pandemic, the likes of which none of us has ever seen, the school is hell-bent on forcing thousands of educators and buildings held together, and some cases quite literally by duct tape. >> san francisco announced an agreement but it will take a while to get students back in the classroom. they work on a peer system and they can start returning with a less restrictive if teachers have access. the problem is there at their most severe purple tear at the moment. >> sandra: mike tobin.

every scenario. their offense corrected everything. maybe it was the turmoil with andy reid and his son come i can't blame them, but for the team not to show up, it reminds me of brett favre and the packers expected to blowout john elliott, 36 years old in miami. there was no way to turn around the ball. this is what it reminded me of. in terms of tom brady, we will never see anything like him. everything about him is great, but not greatest ever. he made himself greatest ever. when no one thought he was a first-round draft pick or a fifth round draft pick, he wasn't starting in college! that story line, i don't think we will see again, but playing at 43, when people get in their 30s and 40s, they look different, they throat

until early march and after two months of bargaining in san francisco the union did agree to return back to school, but they want guaranteed vaccination. that's not the case for philadelphia, threatening to refused to return this week, so these are all the hurdles for the biden administration after they promised to reopen schools after the first 100 days. what we do know is just last friday the department of education said, "there's not not enough data to understand schools reopening because students are learning nationwide. many students are falling off the grid, according to one nonprofit, 3 million students are not receiving any type of education. with those students who may be struggling to learn virtually or not learning at all, it's a renewed sense of urgency to improve education in the united states and get student
11:03 am
safely back to classrooms. >> sandra: a tough situation. christina, thank you. >> john: schools prepare to reopen, demanding a covid vaccine, but are there enough vaccines to go around? jonathan serrie is live. where do teachers stand? >> it depends on where they work. some teachers can already sign up to get vaccinated where here in georgia they say, we are not at that point. state officials cracked down on a health clinic in north georgia that started vaccinating teachers as essential workers saying "they don't have enough supply just yet. across the u.s. the first priority is vaccinating those who were at the greatest risk, the elderly and those who treat them. the administration acknowledges the process is moving slower than anyone would like, but
11:04 am
their hope and community vaccines, more to neighborhood pharmacies and mobile vaccine units into remote areas will help alleviate the shortages. there is one proposal that these two dose regiments, why not split them up and focus on getting as money shots as possible. some people want to study that, but anthony fauci says that would be impractical in the short term. here's why. take a listen. >> with all due respect, it would take several months to get a meaningful answer. at that time the amount of vaccine that would be available would almost be making that question somewhat of a point. >> dr. fauci says he expects the vaccine to increase substantially. at that point you would see teachers getting vaccinated as states expand to include the highest level of workers. right now there is also a debate
11:05 am
among educators, as to which teachers should get the vaccine first. getting the youngest kids back in the classrooms is the highest priority, so people assume they are teacher should be at the front of the line, but professors point out its older teens, people in their 20s who are spreading this virus at greater rates and so these professors argue they should be at the front of the line. >> size indicates that younger children do not spread the virus in the same rate that older ones do. correct. maybe there's something to that. jonathan serrie. i understand teachers desire to want to be vaccinated before they get back and a classroom, but last week the cdc director saying it's not necessary. >> sandra: they were forced to walk that back, they said they were personal remarks. we anticipate that reopening guidance from the cdc that's out this week.

that's unconstitutional and that's directly in the constitution in section six. >> sandra: i have to ask you about how the complaint was brought forth about you not using proper protocol. timothy blodgett was asked about nancy pelosi and the firsthand account of her not following the rules. he said he did not receive a formal complaint. the capitol police have to say this happened. was that the same protocol used to charge you with avoiding the protocol and facing the sign? the capital police reported? >> not that i'm aware of. the only thing i got was the letter. the sergeant of arms who told me i was being fined $5,000 for avoiding the security. so i think there is a double
11:08 am
there as well. >> sandra: to be clear, you do not plan to pay that fine? >> i plan to appeal that fine and i'm already to challenge it and federal court. i had to get that fine, so that's unconstitutional and that is what we are there to do. this is going to be part of it for me. >> what was the case republicans made against using these magnetometers, that you are being fined for not properly going through? suggesting republicans did come with the point is not to protect members from themselves, it's to protect them from those who wish ill will on the outside. >> that's the point. the only people that are going to the house floor are members. nancy pelosi has been driving the narrative for a couple of weeks now that republicans are the enemy within.
11:09 am
that is wrong, absolutely wrong. not one little bit. it was republicans who helped defend the chamber from the riders on january 6th. those of us who stayed behind, the sergeant of arms, capital police, the chamber was never violated. the house chamber. >> sandra: i can't help but hear this and think it can sound very petty to the american people who know right now that fresh off the report, millions of kids haven't returned to in person learning. american families can put food on the table because they're not back to work. and here we have members of congress that are bickering over rules put in place by themselves and now in the case of nancy pelosi, they're not even following it. isn't this a big distraction from getting the work done? >> it's a huge distraction.

washington, there still 5,000 national guard troops and the very high fence with a razor wire on top that's covering a large area around the capital, it's still there. the question is, why is it people have speculated that authorities are worrying about some problem during the impeachment trial which starts tomorrow or maybe even on march 4th which is the original inauguration date. that was changed to january 20th. perhaps there worried about that, but we haven't gotten a good reason why there are troops in washington. >> we saw the antifa demonstration, protest over the weekend, clearly there remain some sort of threat here in washington. i wanted to ask you about the interview that joe biden did yesterday. he was not asked about hunter biden controversy surrounding

country, there are dead set to going back into the classroom. one of the demands they have is that all teachers be vaccinated before they go back in. what was extraordinary, appointed by president biden said, all the data shows it's safe to reopen the schools with precautions and that it's not necessary that teachers be vaccinated before you safely reopen the school. that was news. the white house spokeswoman is asked about this and she said, actually, they were speaking in her personal capacity. she's the head of the cdc. appointed by president biden and speaking at a white house event as a member of the covid response team. it looked like the white house was trying to back off doing something that would alienate the teachers union.
