America's Newsroom 7/26/19 | Fox Breaking News ToDay July 26, 2019



to clear the air coming after weeks of tension between Speaker Pelosi and four freshman Congress women we're keeping an eye on this in case either them speaks in addition we will hear from speaker Pelosi she'll hold a weekly news conference a bit later so stay tuned for all that inside of America's newsroom also new tonight new this morning rising tensions on two fronts first with North Korea speaking out in his first missile test in about two months calling it a solemn warning to South Korea as we say good morning I almost made it on a Friday on Bill Hemmer live here in New York City big welcome to Lisa oh cool yeah thank you so much Denver Colorado that's right how's the new year keep feeling it's feeling it I'm feeling I like it here though I'm in for Sandra Smith tensions on the peninsula flaring up the North Korean launch took place hours after President Trump's national security adviser John Bolton left South Korea he'll not to follow Lucas thank you back to you four developments there from the Pentagon today Thank You Lucas president Trump sounding off on Robert Muller's testimony in an exclusive interview with sean hannity last night the president slamming Muller's quote poor performance calling it a disgrace to our country so they created his phony crime and then they say he obstructed they said there was no collusion but he obstructed and there has never been anything like this ever before in our country the crime was committed on the other side and we'll find out about that Allison barber is live at the White House with more hi Allison hi Alicia she got president Trump said a lot of things we've heard him say about the Russia probe in the past that the special counsel the entire team was biased that it was a witch hunt that it should never happen to another president last night he did not mince words or count his displeasure with the special council's probe telling Sean Hannity it was a disgrace from every standpoint and that he believes it amounts to treason hopefully we're going to be able to find out how a thing like this started it was a disgrace to our country then on top of it you watch that performance it was it was shocking and Bert said this was a fake witch-hunt and it should never be allowed to happen to another president again this was treason this was high crimes this was everything as bad a definition as you want to come up with Democrats who previously called for impeachment continue to make that case but only four Democrats have joined their calls post Moeller testimony last night representative Catherine Clark the vice chair of the House Democratic caucus called for impeachment inquiry she is the highest ranking Democrat to do so but for now Democrats seem prepared to stay focused on the ongoing house investigations the hearing as you know there was a caucus meeting it was it was people had their their opinions but as right now the the caucus as a whole we've decided not to move forward on the impeachment were continuing getting letting the committee's continue their work on the oversight and then we'll take it from there president old sean hannity he was not planning on watching much of Moeller's testimonies but he says what he saw was so bad he watched a whole lot more than he planned to Alicia couldn't help himself ellison barbara at the White House thanks so we are hearing that meeting with Speaker Pelosi Anacostia Cortes is now over apparently laughs in about 30 minutes we believe there's some videotape we'll share that a moment David Drucker senior political correspondent watched an examiner David good morning to you so morning this has been to underscore to understate I should say a tense relationship you have the meeting to accomplish what do you think David well look I I don't know if the meeting accomplished anything we'll have to see what both speaker pelosi and congressman quartet of kasnia Cortes have to say about the meeting but clearly there have been tensions between a lot of the young ambitious House Democratic freshmen and some in the leadership particularly Speaker Pelosi I think Pelosi takes a global view of this she's trying to defend a new House Majority that was built largely on winning over Republican held swing districts districts that voted for President Trump in 2016 and may vote for him again in 2018 as well as some of these suburban district that have been trending away from the Republican Party and so she has a lot of different members to deal with whereas a lot of the young liberals and I say young meaning they haven't been in Congress that long come from gerrymandered districts that were drawn to elect any Democrat anybody with a D next to their name and this is something they're gonna have to work through in the months ahead I do think that once they crown a Democratic presidential nominee which will happen a little less than a year from now next year in July that could solve a lot of these problems because the party will have a leader at least for a few months and if that leader can unify the party in a race against President Trump then all of the stuff we were talking about right now is not really going to matter okay I guess from the outset if you think one meeting is going to settle all of it you can forget about it you know Kelly on counter Way has made the point repeatedly that these four freshmen women they enjoy the attention they have embraced their position in this new Congress so when we get reaction we're going to play that for our viewers first though Donald Trump jr. just see a mama Tucker last night so he's reacting now to the Moller testimony and characterizes at the following way ultimately I think the American public saw that he was put in there as a figurehead because he was the former leader of the FBI he was a decorated marine and that he would do what's right but no one's talking about this guy put in 19 leftist Hillary Clinton donor lawyers the inmates were running the asylum and those inmates were the Democrat Party so part of that reaction was the question from Steve she had a congressman from Ohio who was asking about fusion GPS on this exchange let's go back to Wednesday when you talk about the the firm that produced the steel reporting the name of the firm that produced that was fusion GPS is that correct it was David the the nut of this now is that Republicans have a new storyline and they're saying Muller was not even involved in getting this report done and he did not show clear Authority and on Wednesday of this week go ahead well look I think everybody is trying to make the most of what Muller said or didn't say and use it their advantage I don't think the American public is going to look at this the same way I think that the public is going to be split along party lines I never expected Muller to make news and I never expected Muller to change minds because the public opinion is so fixed on this if you went into this thinking Trump was a crook you still think he's a crook and if you went into this thinking he was innocent as the driven snow that's what you still think I think what's interesting about the Muller testimony is that he took great pains to not add to the report or to the statement he gave subsequent to that so he didn't fan the flames of impeachment and he didn't have anything more to say that was more damaging to the president than what the report already said that should be a good outcome for Republicans if they don't want Trump to be impeached and I think it made it harder for Democrats who believe the president deserves to be impeached to have more evidence at least in the immediate so they're gonna have to continue through the oversight process to see if they can dig more things up that would create more political support broadly for the idea of impeaching the president so it's interesting to see Democrats Republicans excuse me go after Mahler when really it wasn't necessarily a bad bad day for him I'd say the other person that had a really good day because of the Mahler testimony was speaker pelosi she's been trying to put the brakes on a lot of remembers who want impeachment now and that testimony helped her in that regard okay David so much to have you a pleasure having you back David record there in Washington this meeting has wrapped up when we get reaction from speaker Pelosi well we'll give it to you there we have our reporters on the hill there she said going into the meeting quote I'm looking forward to it so that's coming up momentarily David thanks for that 11 past the era now I've got some news on the economy at least the US economy slowing in the second quarter but growth was stronger than analysts expected the Commerce Department just reporting that GDP grew at 2.1 percent from April to June personal consumption a leading contributor to that growth which was offset by a growing trade gap the GDP fell from 3.1 percent in the first quarter get some reaction more on that as we move throughout the morning stocks open at 20 minutes meanwhile police making an arrest in a shooting spree that left 4 dead including the suspects father and brother what led to this rampage plus things get heated on Capitol Hill as House Democrats greenlight subpoenas for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's personal emails and texts Tom Dupree weighs in on this latest effort to investigate the Trump administration listen a moment more from the president's exclusive interview his first reaction the Mullard hearing we went with Sean Hannity last night we will hear from Sean Spicer he's coming up live next right here it was a disgrace from every standpoint and I would say that most people have never seen anything like it and then on top of it you watch that performance mother in the family's apartment in the San Fernando Valley before trying to rob a man outside a bank investigators believe he may have also shot and killed his ex-girlfriend and injured an employee at a North Hollywood gas station police arrested zaragoza after they say he fatally shot another man on a bus there's no word on a possible motive this was a fake witch-hunt and it should never be allowed to happen to another president again this was treason this was high crimes this was everything as bad a definition as you want to come up with this should never be allowed to happen to our country is that in some of the first reaction the president was Shawn handling last night the fallout over the former special counsels testimony Sean Spicer former White House press secretary with me now Sean I see on a Friday especially but where do you think we go next well I think the Democrats are gonna try to figure out how to keep this thing going but that hearing really took the wind out of their sails this was supposed to be the jewelle manifestation of the report they've kind of laid it all out there they thought the American people would be with them after Muller testified I think he clearly fumbled through the testimony looked aloof didn't understand parts of his own report called in a question whether he read it whether he wrote it and I think really undermined the case that the Democrats were hoping to make it so it was I think clearly a victory for the president I know Democrats need and want to keep this alive that tearing made it much much more than why do they need to keep it alive is that money or is that a message what is that John well I think it's two things one is they need to keep their base motivated this is something that they're based when they lost the last election figured that that you know that this is the way that they would make up for that loss and so they've got a lot of pressure from the left-wing socialist progressive base of their party that's for something keeps up and the second thing to be honest with you is that the president is actually getting things done they can't run against the economy they can't run against all the other things that the president is doing because by and large the American people supports the president's policies and the accomplishments that he's is cheated that he's receiving so it makes it hard for them to campaign against him on the economy the number one issue that people care about when you continue to see things move in a very positive direction when more and more people from all sectors of our society are going back to work getting their wages increased it makes it difficult for me to make that policy argument so they're trying to figure out how they can appease their base and do this okay so it's turning off more people here's here's one idea now Tucker's team caught up with speaker Pelosi yesterday I'm gonna play that for you and listen to the last part of her answer here speaker Casey I'll expect with tech cross tonight in January wondered what Putin pad on Trump after yesterday really close politically financially personally answer there I mean I don't even have a me so that she seems flustered with the with her own answer they don't know where to go they've had a house hearing a Senate hearing the Muller hearing countless investigations through the committee's that they now control in the house and they've turned up nothing this is seriously getting tired and I think the problem is is that they recognize that the American people have said wait a second we gave these folks the majority and look at what they've done they're not fighting for these progressive policies they're not keeping their base happy on the policy front and the American people who are largely looking at what they're doing with this majority investigation after investigation are wondering whether or not they are proper stewards of this majority and the direction and policies that people wanted addressed I was in Memphis Tennessee I saw very few people even watching it go ahead III think that's the problems they put a lot of eggs in this basket and it's not going to yield anything for they yeah what about speaker Pelosi and AOC meeting right now and you know that meetings wrapped up what what do you think comes in this relationship well I love the fact that the speaker said that she looked forward to that meeting because I'd love to know what the rest of her schedule looks like if that's the meeting she's looking forward to today that doesn't say a lot about the rest of her schedule look this is embarrassing for the Democratic Party say what you will about Nancy Pelosi but she is a shrewd tactician and the idea that you have these four freshmen members of Congress in particular this first term 29 year old leading the Democratic Party making everybody respond to them including their presidential candidates is embarrassing Nancy Pelosi the idea that she made took over and you know got this majority and now she is taking all of the cues from a 29 year old freshman is embarrassing frankly Thank You Sean have a good we can we'll see guys we'll see what they both have to say very soon we do believe from the hill Thank You Sean you bet governor Porto Rico stepping down but the protests there mainland sit in California yesterday just north of the border some of the suspects are accused of helping to transport migrants into the country two marines arrested on similar charges earlier this month the people of Puerto Rico celebrating the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rocio after the publication of offensive online messages between Rocio and his top aides but protesters also say they want to Road out widespread political corruption Brian Ennis is live in San Juan with more hi Brian good morning Alicia Wow look governor ricardo rosado officially submitted his resignation letter yesterday he'll be out of office on Friday August 2nd but that still has not stopped the protests here the chance of Munda wand allowable reasonable and in alignment with federal procurement regulations Alicia forty two billion dollars appropriated from Congress here for Puerto Rico to recover from Hurricane Maria thirteen billion of that has made its way down the island now FEMA saying they're going to be adding more controls here to evaluate how that money is being spent the people of Puerto Rico there are already blue tarps on their roofs still it has been a really slow drawdown if you speak to the people here and now because of this administration that money is going to be coming down potentially slower ELISA and just as we're heading into hurricane season once again Branyan is some puerto rico thinking right House Democrats pushing forward in their investigations the latest move subpoenas for Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner reaction from Tom Dupree is whether or not that goes anywhere in a moment plus police potentially closing in on two teenaged murder suspects accused of killing at least three people including a North Carolina woman the latest on the manhunt straight ahead we can now confirm that there have been two established and corroborated sightings of the suspects in the gilliam area if to clear the air coming after weeks of tension between Speaker Pelosi in for freshmen congresswomen we're keeping an eye on this in case either them speaks in addition we will hear from speaker Pelosi she'll hold a weekly news conference a bit later so stay tuned for all that inside of America's newsroom also new tonight new this morning rising tensions on two fronts first with North Korea speaking out in his first missile test in about two months calling it a
