4:00 am
lou dobbs, he is next. lou: good evening, president trump making clear his frustration with the russia collusion investigation. an investigation that has produced no evidence of wrong doing. it is in president's mind a witch-hunt. a long witch-hunt at that. with fbi investigating the issues since july of last year. that is right, a year long. the house and senate intelligence committees since january. in a wideranged interview with the new york time, president trump took aim at the sheer ineptitude as he sees it of
4:01 am
this justice department. and the previous. blaming doj for sensationalizing what has been to this point, hysterical charges by the dems and national left wing media who attack without any evidence of any kind that the trump white house has some way colluded with russia. those attacks are almost daily. it is clear that the president is frustrated that the doj and attorney general are not more effectively protecting and defending the president as we report last night. now, mr. trump declares he never would have hired attorney general sessions had he known that sessions would recuse himself from the russia collusion investigation in the first place. the president also lashing out at deputy attorney general, rosenstein suggesting he cannot be trusted. and the from the left open possibility of firing special
4:02 am
counsel robert mueller who president said that is running a office rife with conflicts of interest. and setting a red line for mueller, warning him against expanding russia collusion investigation i if he were to include his family's finances, mueller may have already crossed that line. john roberts with our report. reporter: the white house said that president has no intention of firing his attorney general sessions, or does he' him to resign. he sure beat the stuffing out of him in public. at another even today, highlighting american manufacturing president trump ignored shouted questions when he continues to believe in his attorney general. >> thank you everyone. reporter: at the daily off camera briefing, press secretary sarah huckabee
4:03 am
sanders answered for her boss. >> president said he was disappointed in attorney general sessions decision to recuse himself, but he clearly has confidence in him. >> sharply at odds with bitter goinbitting fromming that president trump game to sessions in a interview. >> well, sessions should have never recused himself, if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job, i would have picked someone element ho else, how do you make a job then recuse yourself, that is unfair, that is a mild world. reporter: white house insisting that president was being candid with his disappointment. >> we have to repeal and replace. >> the president stepped all over his forceful message yesterday about healthcare reform, a press conference
4:04 am
today to announce taking down web sites of trafficking guns and drugs. >> i have honor of serving as attorney general, this is something that goes beyond any thought i would have ever had for myself. we love this job. we love this department. and i plan to continue to do so as long as that is appropriate. reporter: president trump was critical of session's number two rosenstein who appointed mueller, president told new york time he was irritated with he he heard rosenstein worked in baltimore, saying there are very few republicans in baltimore if any. standing side by side can sessions today, rosenstein brushed off the criticism. president trump appeared to send a sharp warning to mueller to keep his nose out of the president and his family's business dealings.
4:05 am
>> is that a ri red line? >> that would be a breach? >> i would say, yes. reporter: bloomberg reported that mul mueller was looking into president's finances but it appeared to be limited to business deals with russians, which the president seemed okay with. >> i tell a lot of condo units. someone from russia buys a condo, i don't make money from russia. reporter: white house said despite reports that mueller investigation has broadened out to include the president's finances. and trump has mo intension of firing mueller. lou. lou: thank you, john. >> our first guest to assess whether attorney general's days are perhaps numbered or mueller moved beyond scope.
4:06 am
greg jarrett. let's start with attorney general sessions. where president put most of his focus. it has been festering all this time. with the president. >> well, i mean, you can say many things about donald trump, one is, he talks openly and honestly about his feelings, he did so last night, he made several legitimate points, one is, sessions does not have to recuse himself but did. and i think he did wrongfuly, the president is right, if you look at rules of department of the justice, a person may recuse himself, may, not shall, if a reasonable person thinks that his impartiality is in question.
4:07 am
it is purely subjective. lou: that yard stick is not available in washington, d.c. >> sessions did not have to recuse himself, the president is correct. lou: i think that jeff sessions it seemed knew and understood he had, when he went back to senate judiciary committee. after being attackeed. and defended himself, this is a man of great integrity, he has been a stol -- for donald trump since the beginning, it seems there is a clear message. i am the president of the united states says donald trump, you damn well better defend me, you damn well better be prosecuting those who are carrying out injuryious actions united states, whether their names be clinton or whatever the names
4:08 am
may be, and the fact that james comey did not investigate the clinton foundation, and did not choose do go ahead or recommend to go ahead with a corrupt and in my judgment, most politicized justice department. that means there has to be changes made with this justice department run by jeff sessions. >> that may be the reasons for the president's words to get the department of justice to start doing there are job. lou: it looks like a gentleman's club right now. >> it does. lou: sickening to wash the inactivity. they are unfocused and unmot unmotivated and do not have targets. >> on campaign trail, president promised high would have his attorney general appoint a special prosecutor to reopen clinton
4:09 am
investigation to not just e-mail controversy but potential pay-to-play. what you have, instead, is according to president, an attorney general he appointed who immediately sandbagged him and recused himself this then resulted in robert mueller being appointed special counsel who has a glaring conflict of interest. lou: through the mass ination of fires fbi director comey with and redrawl we recusal of sessions. he was given free pass to counsel, to run amuck. >> correct and mueller has a disqualifying conflict of interest, it is mandatory under the appreciate counsel law, but you know you have rod rosenstein, he is the one who
4:10 am
engineered firing of james comey and mueller who is investigating that firing is supposed to report to the man who engineered the firing. that is a conflict of interest. you cannot make this stuff up, there are so many conflicts, president made it clear, he is going to start making a very public case about these conflicts of interest. there ought to be people who are fair and unbiased heading up this investigation, not people who are just the opposite. lou: and the national left wing media, in this country is clucking along more than a year investigation. by fbi and other agents as well into the quote trump russia collusion. without finding one scintilla of evidence. oversight committees, not one scintilla of evidence, that means not one scintilla of evidence what they decided to
4:11 am
have a special counsel and. today, on the day in which this president has been serving 6 months, as our president, today they are complaining about his public statements of precisely as you alluded to, what is in his heart, and in his mind about each of these figures, and his dissatisfaction with each one. >> is that because media does not like donald trump? their allegiance is elsewhere? one wonders? lou: i think this left wing national media is scared to death of the truth, and this president is showing what the left wing in this country is made of, it gets complicated. but so many ways so directly simple. great to see you. >> my pleasure. lou: thanks. >> thank you. lou: think we'll get it resolved? >> not for a long time. lou: i gave greg, a chance to
4:12 am
wrap it up with a bow, he declined, thank you. coming right back, much more ahead, stay with us. we're going to win this thing. period. >> senator mccain's health crisis making it more difficult to repeal obamacare. >> senator mccain as we know had never shied away from a fight. i assure you, he is not backing down now. lou: we take up healthcare battle with the dean ed rollins. >> and the juice is loose. o.j. simpson granted parole after almost 9 years in prison. so what happens? we'll have more ahead on that. and just about everything else. we're coming right back. potsch: you each drive a ford pickup, right? (in unison) russ, leland, gary: yes. gary: i have a ford f-150. michael: i've always been a ford guy. potsch: then i have a real treat for you today. michael: awesome. potsch: i'm going to show you a next generation pickup. michael: let's do this. potsch: this new truck now has a cornerstep built right into the bumper. gary: super cool. potsch: the bed is made of high-strength steel, which is less susceptible to punctures than aluminum. jim: aluminum is great for a lot of things,
4:13 am
but maybe not the bed of a truck. potsch: and best of all, this new truck is actually- gary: (all laughing) oh my... potsch: the current chevy silverado. gary: i'm speechless. gary: this puts my ford truck to shame. james: i'll tell you, i might be a chevy guy now. (laughing)

4:16 am
lou: congressional budget office scores latest version of senate gop's proposed repeal and replace plan. 22 million more people would become uninsured over the next decade, cut premiums by 30% and reduce federal budget more than 419 billion, and reduce
4:17 am
taxes by almost a half trillion dollars over course of that time. joining me now, to discuss whether republicans are capable of passing this legislation or any other, resolving their internal disputes and actually following this president and pursues his agenda. ed rollins, serving in three president at administrations, dean himself. >> thank you. lou: ed rollins, what do you think? it has a lot of attractive elements. >> at-this-point there is no much confusion, and no concensus, they still down have votes to put it on the floor. i think best they could do at-this-point is repeal it, they don't know what they want to put in a bill. if they could repeal it then have you some time to fix it. bring everyone together. lou: congressman jim jordan, senator rand paul, have said from the beginning, repeal the damn thing.
4:18 am
>> i think if you repeal it, you put pressure on a timeline, and you can come back and fix it. i think at-this-point try to fix it, is not going to work, they have very important things, the president promised he will fix this economy. lou: good news he can make the legitimate claim he has turned direction of markets, that is a direction that has been sustained 4 trillion in new market cap. we get more evidence a whilier job market -- healthier job market. but they can reverse. but to this point. >> two good things he has done, the he has stopped illegal immigration on the border by the mere threat. second thing is undone a amount of executive orders that would have been terrible
4:19 am
for the economy that obama put in the closing days, and the thing that makes me feel best, nancy pelosi was on the air, saying this has been the worst 6 months she has had in her life, that is a good thing as far as i'm concerned. lou: a strong sign how good leadership from white house has been in 6 months, i don't hear anyone want doing grade this president. suddenly left wing national media is clucking and talking about what a terrible leader he is, because the opposite is evidence in foreign policy, or his successful overseas trips or domestic policy leadership. the man is inn my judgment, if anyone wants to score it, talking a plus. >> i am not scoring. i think that is too soon. lou: i will give you a 6 month score. >> it your show, you can do
4:20 am
whatever you want. i am a college professor, i will wait until the end of the semester. lou: if you play to that college professor too much here. >> i have used to twice now in last 3 weeks. at end of day, i think he was -- he is everything he said he would be, he has not changed his personality and that is not -- no, i am not -- >> i have to ask you, you won't give him a score. this man is having people chewing his posterior every day in left wing national media, his own party bucking him, selling him out his own aides leaking from evidence direction, he is under assault by deep state, left wing, the dems. and god knows how many countries are joining vladimir putin in their, efforts to intervene in our politics andure our economy.
4:21 am
the fact of the matt ser, he has done a hell of a job. >> i give him an a plus for toughness and perseverance, what you is that? he is trying to lead ignore an people. he is trying to lead a congress and a senate who have not done a damn thing, of which i am aware, beyond the sequester over the course of the last decade. then have you -- >> don't make too big a deal of me saying good, bad or department. different. lou: i am talking the big deal who is doing great things and not getting recognition for it. >> i think at end of the day he will perr persevere. lou: great thing, standing up saying robert mueller is not doing his job acrossed a red
4:22 am
line, has ignored -- as greg jarrett points out. he said that the president is right. he has violated special counsel statute, there are conflicts throughout his special counsel legal team, and we tolerate this? the national left wing media is encouraging it? they are cheering, this is ignorance and institutionalized in washington. >> i'm not a believer in special prosecutors, i have lived through many of them. >> that -- i am talking about reality. >> i don't underestimate that, it is going to continue, it is not gghts t not get better in 6 months or a year, if he wants to do what he wants to do it a 4-year, knock down, drag out battle. lou: leaving it there mitch mcconnell and paul ryan if they had any backbone between them. >> they may not be there in 4 years but he will. lou: reminder follow me on twitter, like me on facebook,
4:23 am
follow he on instagram. our twitter followers fired up about my new book. tweeting -- >> keep writing, tweeting. viewers whose comments are read on the show receive an auto graphed copy of putin's gambit. >> volume on the big board 3.1 billion shares. >> chipotle shares plunging, more than 4% after reports of more than 100 customers getting sick after eating at a virginia restaurant. >> and treasury department finding exxonmobil $2 million for violating sanctions against russia, when secretary
4:24 am
of state tillerson was ceo, listen to my reports 3 times a day coast-to-coast, on salem radio network. up next, left wing media, congressional investigators, deep state justice officials still covering for crooked hillary clinton. i'll take up the need to expose to investigate the dems 's corruption and my i got a mortgage offer from the bank today. whuuuuuat? you never just get one offer. go to and shop multiple loan offers for free! free? yeah. could save thousands. you should probably buy me dinner. no. go to for a new home loan or refinance. receive up to five free offers and choose the loan that's right for you. our average customer could lower their monthly bills by over three hundred dollars. go to right now.
4:25 am
4:26 am
4:27 am
4:28 am
lou: a few thoughts on questions that congressional committees intelligence agents and left wing national media should be asking but refuse to do so as they ignore real corruption, real collusion of the d cswamp. why didn't obama do more to
4:29 am
stop the russia hacking. why done the dnc allow federal investigator access to those servers, and how in the hell in a matter of national security could they be allowed to getting away with refusing them access -- why oh, why have not our intelligence agencies, acted to hold obama officials accountable. what about clinton corruption, and ties to russia. the payoffs to the clinton -- what about attorney general loretta lin lynch. instructing comey to call the clinton investigation a matter. the list goes on. the indeference to the special
4:30 am
counsel, and violations and conflicts. mueller was interviewed to replace comey as fbi director, a man he has known since at least 2003. president trump turned down mueller to have that job. does that look like a conflict of interest to you? the men have been described, comey and mueller, as quote, brothers in arms, mueller conflicts extent to his legal team of democratic donors, most of them, nearly half of them gave money to hillary clinton or president obama one staffer donating to both dems and republicans. that is only place that republicans show up for any money from that legal team. and as for rosenstein, deputy attorney general, the man who appointed somewhere counsel, after writing a letter recommending firing comey, he appears to be in denial of massive conflicts, which
4:31 am
surround him. >> i made the decision to appoint director mueller based on his reputation, he had an excellent reputation, bipartisan support for his integrity. i can assure you, if there were conflicts that arose because of director mueller or anyone emptied by director mueller we have a process within the deputy to take care of this we judge by results, my view about that, we'll see if they do the right thing. lou: we'll see if they do the right thing? if there are conflicts? there is no hypothetical, they are on the face of this mess we call a special counsel, massive conflicts of interest. and a deputy attorney general spewing flat attitudes and -- platitudes and denying there is an apparent conflict of
4:32 am
interest for special counsel, i personally believe it is time for trump so get rid of rosenstein and mueller. amoneappoint officials so investigate the real corruption in the dc swamp. it is time to do the right thing. it's pastime. now quote of the evening from henry kissinger. corrupt politics make the other 10% look bad. we're coming right back. president trump has been 6 months in office, and the economy is thriving and the country is moving. >> our economy is booming again and americans are going back to work, in construct sites, mines and factories. lou: we'll take up the president's strong leadership and a respect card for his first -- report card for his
4:33 am
first 6 months in office. tony say ag will join me, and these two men have the most these catching on their i'm ambitious. i will not hide it. we will not hide it. we embrace ambition. women are made to be ambitious. i will dream big, big without hesitation. we will take risks, not live in fear. we will rise together, rise above the negativity. no longer will ambition in a woman be seen as a negative. we will model ambition for our daughters i will help women around the world -the whole world- to succeed. women are tough, strong, powerful. ambition is feminine. ambition is empowering. ambition is not a dirty word. ambition is sexy - ambition is very sexy. what's your ambition? ... to help women build empires. ... help more women run for office. ... empower women financially. ... to compete equally in sports ... for all of us to lean in together. ... to transform societies.

high,104th record close, since inauguration day, how about that 4 trillion dollars in market cap, more than 900 thousand jobs have been created you were president trump. the unemployment rate dropped to 4.4%. and you know that is not a bad 6 months. i was talking with ed rollins earlier, h does not want to give him a grade, i will give him a grade, a plus. there is still work to do, treasury department secretary for public affairs, tony sayegh. good to have you here and see you. >> good to be back with you. ho? >> i, splendid. lou: the market if hillary clinton were elected, markets would be in a trash heap, economy would be locked in place, and growth rates
4:38 am
woulding talking about a new normal as 1 to 2%, but now they talk about 3% and where things can happen in third quarter. >> and growth economic growth, we know that helps everyone, raises wages and helps create good paying jobs, improved revenue through the government. we have not had this economy growth for 8 years, you see what the problem. is that is what the president inherited. go to jobs, you talk about 900,000 created. 821,000 of those are private sector jobs, 79 thousand are constructed, 42 thousand mining and log, 41 thousand manufacturing, he is creating that economy for way too long, almost a decade was nearly eliminate by bad economic policy. lou: i get a kick out of national left wing media that will not give him credit for what is happening, not take
4:39 am
note of the leadership tone of president trump versus his predecessor who just, everything he could do to slowdown the engage engines of growth in this country, he did. suddenly we talk about energy independents could we were talking about 8 years under president obama you can't talk about energy independents, we can do better, and blah blah. this country is taking control of its destiny under this president. >> this country is leveraging the power that we have economically that has been with bad economic domestic policy for those 8 years. we talk about economic growth and empowerment of people to make decisions over their own economic outcomes. you talk tax reform and regulator relief and renegotiating trade agreements

so they are fair to american workers and businesses is what we're focused on. lou: tax reform, it is up hill work for this president, your team, treasure, i mean that is tough stuff. with an indolent kong an congress and leadership. >> i will happily report. lou: you are not going to shine me on. >> i'm going to tell you the facts, you decide. the facts are -- >> you give the report i will decide. >> and viewers will, we had group of 6, secretary mnuchin. and gary cohn. working on tax for a long time. secretary mnuchin meeting with kevin brady -- >> are we going to hear more of border adjustment tax because of some sort of bs with house leadership. >> we're negotiate.
4:41 am
lou: or do i hear we do it the right way and follow the president's agenda. >> a lot of our plan was based on campaign plan that president campaigned on, economically. lou: i hope so. >> that is focused on growth and creating job. this is focused. if you want honest answer on job correction, economy growth and helping main street reclaim from economic best. lou: and a trillion in infrastructure is that at top. >> infrastructure. is i think that separate matter than tax. lou: i put a price tag on it. >> well, i -- >> i will review your numbers. lou: i was using the president's number. >> important thing about tax form there are two parts individual side is focused on delivering real middle income factory leave. lou: hallelujah. >> simplifying the code, so you get about 95% of americans benefit from doubles

4:45 am
4:46 am
4:47 am
lou: joining me now, kimberly guilfoyle, great to have you here. president has unloaded on the attorney general, he had a belly full. he has. greg jarrett was here. he agrees 100% with the president. he said, that there are
4:48 am
conflicts all over this special counsel. and everyone is just particularly attorney general sessions is acting as if he is indifferent to the manifest conflicts of interest. >> it was shocking and surprising. and president is being honest, and transparent. and saying, had i known this, untoward turn of events, he would have made a different decision, i do not see a problem with him saying that, it is the truth. now they will object to that, we object to the truth, we objection to you being transparent and voicing your opinion. lou: the left is scared to death of the truth, and president is speaking truth. they have to run for the whatever crooked corner they can find. but the national left wing media is the problem, they are not acknowledging what is
4:49 am
reality, and achievement and tone and direct of this country, all they have to do is quit -, i'll clean it up, they have to acknowledge the truth. >> right, and don't complaint about the truth when you get it. nothing that this president does is good enough for them, he tells them what he is thinking and tweets it out, they are upset. listen, you get your own directed toward your phone, you will know what the president is thinking. here to "new york times" he said what he is thinking about sessions, i think as a former prosecutor, i think he has a very good valid case to be upset. lou: do you believe that mueller has conflicts of interest? >> i do. i think there are a number of conflicts of interest that
4:50 am
make it inappropriate for him to continue forward. this would never help to president obama, you would never see this kind of nonsense what so of ir ever, you let the fox in the hen house and that's that. lou: he would have put his top agent and operative, eric holder in his ag, and then loretta lynch and not a word is said, not even by the republicans. why aren't the republicans complaining. >> maybe they are not playing for the same republican team and trying to actually back this president that won decisively. ha is the problem, he is not only battling crazy media, liberal democrats, but he is also battling those within his own party.
4:51 am
those within leadership as well. who are not doing him any favors, it seems to me, obvious working against him in main respects. >> and working against him. this is party that is really driving the whole thing. the vastly wealthy republican donors. could clean this mess up right away. >> you are so right. lou: mitch mcconnell, there will be no money for people who dent support president, tell speaker ryan his kool aid ride is over. and there will not be any -- >> kool aid ride. lou: no cash for the challenged lem learning laters that make -- legislators that make up the republicans on capitol hill. >> dry you of the benjamins, no more money for them. if you don't get the job done, they have -- by the way, whining and glitchin griping for oafserforever, they have
4:52 am
bases loaded, they just got a walk and they can't get a run in, this is a problem, i don't understand. lou do something about it tonight. lou: kimberly guilfoyle, thank you. >> thank you. lou: terrific. up next, president trump marking 6 months of incredible achievement in office, as president of the united states. charlie eboni williams joining me next. stay with us. jackie: as an 18 year old, i let my mistakes kind of take over my life. i was point-five credits away from completing high school and i didn't do it. angela: i got pregnant and i was the main one working so, i did what i had to do to survive. jocelyn: sentía que la escuela no era para mí.
