i love how usaa gives me the and the security just like the marines did. a ♪ brian: we're back with headlines right now. the clock is ticking for republicans to get their agenda before congress before going on recess. one of the biggest sticking points is funding the controversial border wall. a new bill in the house sets aside $1.6 billion to at least begin construction on the southern border wall. and in just a few hours, attorney general jeff sessions will head to las vegas to discuss sanctuary cities with

local and state officials. the visit comes as nine jurisdictions are at risk of losing millions of dollars in federal funding for not cooperating with the federal law and federal law enforcement. there is a difference. steve? steve: thank you, brian. it is one of president trump's most memorable campaign promises. remember this? >> the wall is going to be built 100 percent. [chanting] build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. steve: and now as brian just told you that big beautiful border wall is at the center of a budget fight with two house republicans saying fund the wall or they will shut down the government. joining us right now is one of those lawmakers alabama congressman mo brooks. move, good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. steve: what are you suggesting you are going to do unless you get the cash to build the wall? >> it's become quite clear that in the senate we have ceded authority to the democrats to control our agenda. that's not what the american
4:45 am
people have sent to us washington, d.c. to do. what i am advocating at this point in time and i'm not sure if you're aware but i'm candidate for the united states senate in alabama to replace jeff sessions and what is precipitated all of this is an advertisement that i put out yesterday that you all probably have your hands on that if i get in the united states senate i'm going to use the filibuster to make sure we have the money to build the wall as contrasted to the democrats using the filibuster threat right now to prevent funding for the border security wall. so that's where i am. now, on the house side, we have been doing our job. i think we are going to pass funding for about $1.6 billion for a border security wall. that's what president trump wants. however, when it goes to the senate, if past history is any guide, it's going to get stripped out. we saw something similar to that happen in april where the senate refused to support president trump's border security wall, in effect denying the voters, the tens of millions of voters in the united states who want that security on our southern border. steve: well, you know, the problem, congressman, is you want the wall, donald trump wants the wall.
4:46 am
you got a bunch of republicans in congress who say we really don't need the wall. >> well, that's predominantly on the senate side apparently. on the house side, we have enough republicans saying we are going to build the wall, that it will get built. the problem is when it goes to the senate and they have archaic rule, filibuster rule that empowers the minority of democrats to thwart the will of the majority of the republicans in the senate to thwart the will of the majority republican house to thwart the will of the president of the united states and to thwart the will of the tens of millions of voters who sent us to washington, d.c. to correct some of the damage done by the left wing policies of the last decade or. so and so that's what we need to focus on is pressure on the senate to use their majority to change the rules so that majority will prevails and then we will have the funding for the border security wall that was probably the number one agenda item and now president trump's campaign. steve: sure. now, of course the u.s. senate going to stay in session two

extra weeks to try to do something with healthcare and a myriad of other things. congressman, you know, the republicans could get the actual repeal and replacement. they could repeal the current affordable care act if they use the nuclear option. i know you are a fan of using -- all we need is 51 votes. we don't need 60 as has been the case and has been tradition in the esteemed club of the senate. nonetheless, get stuff done go with the nuclear option you say. >> well, the american people are frustrate of thed. because this republican house senate and white house are not getting their job done as have you just pointed out. let's narrow the focus to the united states senate. that's where the republicans have ceded to the democrats the authority to. chuck schumer, the authority to stop us from getting the job done. and for the life of me, i don't understand why 52 republicans, the majority, would give the minority the power to stop the majority. that makes no sentence, particularly at this time in american history. where so much is at stake.
4:48 am
i hope with what you are bringing to light here today. that the american people will rise up, put pressure on the republicans in the united states senate to quit messing around, to get rid of the rules that prevent our majority will from prevailing so that we can have border security. we can have an infrastructure plan. we can have tax reform. go down the list. steve: okay you a. heard u.s. senate you heard mo brooks stop messing around. thank you. >> thank you very much. steve. steve: good luck in your run for the senate. senator kaine suggests donald trump jr. may have committed treason. o.j. simpson could walk out of prison next week not only a free man but a rich man in the future. bob massi covered the trial from the inside of the courtroom. he joins us live to next. ♪ i need dollars ♪ dollars is what i need

interacting with goldstone who was setting up a meeting with the russian lawyer. ainsley: who better to explain why? donald trump jr. himself. here's what he said on sean hannity last night. >> in retrospect, i probably would have done things a little bit differently. my take away is that someone has information on our opponent, you know? things are going a million miles an hour. you know what it's like to be on a campaign. i was reading on scandal that were underreporting for a long time. so maybe it had to do something about this. >> did you tell your father anything to do about this? >> it was such a nothing, there was nothing to tell. i wouldn't even remembered it until you start scouring through the stuff. it was a wasted 20 minutes, which was a shame. >> i want to hear from robert goldstone and find out what he was thinking. >> well, we heard from the president. he tweeted this morning. ainsley: he said my son donald did a good job last night. he was open, transparent, and
5:03 am
insistent. steve: two years ago, this family not involved in politics. absolutely not. and we had cory lewandowski, brian, as you mentioned a moment ago, he was on with us an hour ago. when you are in the throws of the big campaign, you are trying to dig up dirt on your opponent. every campaign does it. what about this one? he was actually the campaign manager at the time of the meeting. he had this to say about the revelations. >> if this was a meeting that has any information that would have been relevant to the campaign or could have potentially impacted the outcome of the election, i would have been made aware of it. president trump would have been made aware of it. neither one of us know anything about the meeting because it was a nothing meeting. that's why. this happens every day in a campaign and every day when you have a president in office. it is a courtesy meeting to sit down for 10 or 15 minutes to what i knew people have to say. and when you find out it's not relevant, you walk away and say thank you for your time, and you move. >> okay. sean did a great time last night going through
5:04 am
it. that's when you got out of the way. here's the story, here's the questions. he also play all the detractors that have been going after donald trump jr. the other thing to keep in mind too is the one question sean asks is there any more? and he said "no." that's the key. if you go through the former campaign and the current administration and say men, women, what else do you have? let's get all of this out now because i have a country to run, and i have health care to pass. in fact, yesterday behind closed doors, i think the spotlight being elsewhere is actually helping the health care debate because behind closed doors, they introduced some new facets that are supposed to bring some moderates in and conservatives to the table, including ted cruz provision that was sent out to c bo. ainsley: a lot of pressure on mitch mcconnell now to get this health care bill done, pass it in the senate and ship it over to the house. he knows that, he's under a lot of pressure being leader of the house -- brian: senate. ainsley: excuse me, senate. so he decided to cut the
5:05 am
august recess in half. so if you had a vacation, sorry. you have to cancel it. you, senators, are going to stay in congress and work. steve: exactly. they hope to have some sort of vote on this thing next week. they will reveal it to the public tomorrow, mitch and company will. but here's the thing. according to the papers this morning, the new version that they price out with the cbo does keep those big taxes. you know, that 3.8% tax on net investment knock. that stays and so did the .9 payroll tax. and what they're doing is they're going to use that money that they would save, and it's a total of $230 billion over ten years. essentially, you know how the senate works. to buy more votes. so what mitch mcconnell is doing is saying, look, there's more money to do this, more money to do that. the whole idea was to get rid of the regulations, to get rid of the taxes, to get rid of as much of obamacare as possible. and, yes, here are one of the basic tenants. this gigantic tax on peach.

ainsley: so one's a payroll tax. we all pay that; right? the other tax was that? steve: if you are an investor and through your 401(k)s and whatnot, almost everybody is, there's a 3% tax over net income for families over $250,000. brian: the way democrats spin it is he's going to give a tax break for the rich. no. president obama nailed the people who make over 225 5,000 with the tax and republicans would return it to the way it does. however, through tax reform released in september by steve mnuchin, he could handle that. you know, he could compensate for that intax reform if that stays for now. steve: here's the problem. all of those house republicans who voted to pass, you know, what now is a completely new version in the u.s. senate, you know, they don't want taxes to go forward. they're going to be furious. if there are still taxes left in this thing, they're going
5:07 am
to go why did we vote for that? and then when they conference and try to do it over and see how many heads in the u.s. house of representatives are for that, that's not what they -- ainsley: new york city mayor bill de blasio is back from germany. he delivered the eulogy over the loudspeaker in front of hundreds of cops yesterday at the funeral of officer maya. listen. >> well, the demonstrations for this single mother who cared for her three children. brian: that was the commissioner. very emotional yesterday. steve: talking about how upset the police officers were the night of the vigil flew to hamburg, germany to protest donald trump. so yesterday when the mayor was in front of thousands of people who were assembled in northern manhattan, what did the cops do? many of them, hundreds of them turned their backs on mayor
5:08 am
de blasio. ainsley: here's a picture of it. steve: what does that say to the chief executive officer of the town? ainsley: yeah, we had pat on yesterday saying did they feel like the mayor would rather be in germany than here in new york remembering this police officer? and they're saying he should have been here and been with the family. brian: he has led chaos in this city compared to where it was. he does not care about the cops, and he doesn't care about their votes. for some reason, he believes he's impervious, and he's getting another four years. meanwhile, the police commissioner was emotional, does care about the people who work for him, and you're going to hear from him and the victim's daughters right now. >> the demonstrations for this single mom who cared for her elderly mom and her own three children. >> i can find solace on the in it fact that on the night of july 4th, when i saw her
5:09 am
before she left to go to work, she came into my doorway, and she said i love you. i'm going to work now. and she came, and she gave me a hug. she gave me a really big, tight hug, and i said, oh, i love you, mom. and i pinched her cheeks because her cheeks are so cute. and then she went back to the doorway, and she looked at me, and i looked at her, and i said can i just have one more hug? steve: all of her children spoke yesterday. and giving the eulogy for your hero mom has to be one of the hardest things scenario that was her oldest daughter, and she has two twins. she's a single mother and now she's not here to see them get married one day, get their first job. just really tragic.
5:10 am

5:16 am
>> this is evidence of willingness to commit collusion. ainsley: the mainstream media's obsession with russia continues. but do americans, do you the people even care about that? pollster lee carter says "no," and she has the polls to prove it. joining us now is president and partners lee carter. hey, lee. >> hey, good morning. ainsley: great to see you. so you gave -- you were polling the people and asked them what they really cared about; right? >> uh-huh. ainsley: so we're asking what action do you want to hear mostly from the trump administration? >> and 57% said jobs and economic growth. now, this is what trump's message has been. this is where he wants to focus his attention right now. but what i found most interesting about this number is that it was equal. 57% between republicans and independents and democrats. number one agreed by far. ainsley: not russia. >> what did they care least about? >> was the trump administration's tie with
5:17 am
russia. ainsley: democrats do, too? >> democrats were a little bit -- just a little bit different than republicans on this one, but still overall, people are saying what's there, i'm not sure this is the thing that's most important to them. ainsley: so which issue is most important to them? >> what they say right now they want to see is tax reform. now, i think this is also something that's somewhat surprising because we're starting -- the republicans are starting with health care. a lot of people said let's get taxes done. people want to know what's impacting their pocketbook, and that's 50.8% agreed on that. ainsley: and that was republicans and democrats too? >> that's right. ainsley: what about issue is at least important to them? >> what's least important to them is actually collusion with russia, uss relations. ainsley: i am surprised by that. i thought democrats would care more about that. but that was their least important issue? >> that's right. ainsley: what about the trump russia involvement. was there collusion? did you ask them?
5:18 am
>> i did and 47% just about said, no, they didn't believe that. and then on the other hand, i don't know about 29% and 24% said "yes." now, that's concerning. that's one in the four of the people think that something happen and another one of the four think i'm not sure. so not exactly a persuasion, but not as dire as you would think if you're watching the mainstream media where you would think that everybody believes. it's just a matter of time for this to come out. but that's just simply not the case. ainsley: okay. and then you also asked how much was there -- how much media coverage was there when it comes to the mainstream media of collusion? what did they say? >> they said -- about 23% said there's not enough. 28% said just enough, and almost half of the folks said there's too much. so i think overall people are getting a little bit tired of this narrative and what they want to hear is if there's something real. there's something tangible because people don't know exactly what to believe. so if you're going to be a journalist, if you're going to be an investigative journalist, come out when there's something tang that i believe we can talk about.

5:24 am
>> yeah. it was about 22 years ago that my grandpa started this hospital. he said if i ever make it in life, i'm going to give everything back to find a cur cure. his mother died of cancer, and he has had it five different times. i went to salt lake city and met up with my grandpa and saw all of the incredible things that he's doing. take a look at this. >> all of us have been touched in some way or another by cancer. >> we dedicate this facility to the healing of this frightening disease. >> thanks to this magnificent facility, we will double our research. >> i hope i inherited my dad's heart. he turns 80 today with a heart that just keeps giving. ♪ happy birthday to you you. ♪

5:26 am
>> i was diagnosed with incurable multipl multiple myeloma, and i just completed a blood transplant. >> thank you. >> this is the largest chemotherapy center in america. holds 108 and fully staffed. i want them all to have a beautiful view. >> look at this. you're so right. i've never been in here before. >> you're doing okay? >> yes. doing good. thank you. thank you for taking care of these wonderful people for us. >> what type of cancer do you have? >> melanoma. i've had eight tumors removed. >> eight tumors? you look great to me. >> you don't need to come up here. >> thank you. >> in some way, the lord has placed us here by blessing you. >> thank you. thank you very much. >> i'm abby.

>> arhow long have you had the disease? >> i found out last year. last january. >> how are you progressing? >> pretty good. i am just so honored to meet you. >> i'm honored to meet you. >> i want a hug. thank you for all you do. i really appreciate it. >> sweet of you to let us see. tell us about your situation. >> i'm a stage four melanoma patient, and i've had melanoma for eight and a half years. >> where is your melanoma located? >> i started with a mole on my forehead, and now it's in my brain, lungs, liver, spleen, bones, and my neck. so it's a fight. >> when i walked in, the first thing i saw was your smile. i mean, you could tell a happy person. >> yeah. i try every day. you just have to figure the best out of the worst. >> what a great attitude. >> great advice.
5:28 am
>> so nice to meet you. >> honor to meet you. my dad wants to say thank you as well. >> our love to you. >> thank you so much for this wonderful facility. >> when i found out that the research could genetically target -- >> isn't that something? >> the chemotherapy to the tumor itself, i was just amazed that type of research. i know we're very lucky to be able to be in here right now. >> love you all very much. >> and it started with you. brian: that's a reality show i would love to see. i mean, would you just kind of walk through, he gave us a slice of that. >> it really puts life in perspective. i have to say a lot of those people, they know they're not going to make it, but they have these huge smiles on their faces, and they have hope to live one more day. steve: sure. >> it's incredible, these people, it really inspires you to be grateful for everything. ainsley: a lot of that because of your grandfather. he took god's blessings because i know he's very
5:29 am
successful, and he's blessing other people. started a whole cancer. and when you hear his story, five time survivor, that's incredible. because it gives people hope that have cancer for a second or third time. >> and it shows what individuals can do to make a difference. not the government, what individuals can do. so we are going to do a whole piece on fox and friends weekend on saturday about the research because they're doing incredible things working with elephants who don't get cancer, by the way, to find ways to help cure certain types of cancer. ainsley: and that's his goal, to cure cancer. >> that's his goal. steve: and just to show you what a legend he is in salt lake city. did you guys notice who was singing happy birthday to grandpa? that was the mormon an tabernacle choir. >> if you have ever heard the mormon an tabernacle choir live, it is beautiful. ainsley: and he developed the egg cartons, the thing the whopper comes in. the big mac for mcdonald's. >> thank you to my grandpa out there and everybody living

we send our kids out into the world, full of hope. and we don't want something like meningitis b getting in their way. meningococcal group b disease, or meningitis b, is real. bexsero is a vaccine to help prevent meningitis b in 10 to 25 year olds. even if meningitis b is uncommon, that's not a chance we're willing to take. meningitis b is different from the meningitis
5:33 am
most teens were probably vaccinated against when younger. we're getting the word out against meningitis b. our teens are getting bexsero. bexsero should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects are pain, redness or hardness at the injection site; muscle pain; fatigue; headache; nausea; and joint pain. bexsero may not protect all individuals. tell your healthcare professional if you're pregnant or if you have received any other meningitis b vaccines. ask your healthcare professional about the risks and benefits of bexsero and if vaccination with bexsero is right for your teen. moms, we can't wait. >> my take away when all of this was going on is that someone has information on our opponent, you know? things are going a million miles an hour, you know what it's like to be on a campaign. we just won indiana, but we're talking about a contested convention. things are going a million
5:34 am
miles an hour again and, hey, wait a minute. i heard about all of these things, but maybe this is something. i should hear him out. brian: last night that was donald trump jr. on sean hannity, now i want to get a perspective from a very powerful republican in washington. to find out other elements. senator grassley, you're not a lawyer. you're on the judiciary committee. but there are elements to this whole scenario that you want to bring out. what are they? >> well, i think that the lady lawyer that was there at that meeting, i've written to secretary tillerson and secretary kelly, the ladder of homeland security to find out what she was doing in the country when presumably either a visa or parole expired, she wouldn't have been in the country at that particular time. we do get information on that. and we do get to the bottom of this gold stone person in london to see what he knew, and i think it's very
5:35 am
important if we can get some information from him as well. steve: sure. absolutely. senator, just a real estate re: cap the russian lawyer was denied a visa to come into the united states. but suddenly, magically, almost, she got permission to come into the country to have that meeting. what are you suggesting? what do you think might have happened? keep in mind at that time, barack obama was still president of the united states, and he had his people at the department of homeland security and whatnot. >> yeah. well, that's what i hope to find out because it was in the previous administration. if there had been enforcements of the immigration law, she wouldn't have been in the country. and the other thing is if she was a representing a foreign government, and i don't know that for sure, but she wasn't registered under the federal agency's registration act as well, so that's another thing that we're having a hearing on within a few days on the
5:36 am
enforcement on that as well. so this issue may come up there as well. steve: there were the so she might not have been allowed in the country at the time. do you think that this could have been a setup? >> there's no way i know that, and i shouldn't comment on things you don't know. but we do have a responsibility to congressional oversight to the bottom of it. i've been involved in -- even before this came up, getting information on people who ought to be registered and and in the previous administration, this law hasn't been enforced the way it should be enforced. brian: she does have a connection to dnc the trump dossier. we now know ambassador mcfall happened to be on radio with me yesterday. they had video of him addressing a committee hearing about russian american relations the next day. you could see her in that committee meeting diagonally
5:37 am
behind the obama russian ambassador at that meeting. and to verify the fact that when she legitimately brought up with donald trump jr. was actually the topic she cared about. she was at a museum documentary and about how he wasn't really a good guy and they don't deserve to have these sanctions. so there's a lot going on here besides a arbitrary meeting in trump tower. >> there's a lot to discuss that we were investigating in regard to gps, how they were involved and the steel and how that's been involved and a lot of this russian influence and whether or not we -- they were involved in, you know, what do you call? a research against trump. one time research against
5:38 am
trump himself in the case of other republicans. steve: glad to hear it's on your radar screen and that you're looking into that. got to ask you about the fact that you're going to stick around in washington, d.c. you're not going to be able to get back to iowa until halfway through august. it looks like the new plan that mitch mcconnell is going to reveal to the country tomorrow and being priced out by the cbo, it keeps those big obamacare taxes in it to try to get some moderates support. do you support this particular plan if it still has those big taxes in it? >> let me tell you what i support because i'm not going to say i support a specific bill until i actually see it, and we're not going to see it until thursday, and i thought we were looking at 142-page bill three weeks ago that should be through the united states senate now. but this is what i'm looking for.
5:39 am
i'm looking for anything that will pick up the pieces from obamacare, the broken promises of obamacare, and the fact that 72,000 iowaians can't get insurance today, and those sort of things or people that have high deductibles and high copays and high premiums, and so their insurance isn't any worth to them. isn't any value to them. that's what i want to vote for something that will correct those things. >> senator, the president has picked christopher ray to take over the fbi. today is the confirmation hearing. what can we expect? >> ainsley, it's really surprising to me that you have a nominee like that to an important agency, and i haven't heard from republicans or democrats or from you folks in the media anything negative about him. i think he comes well-qualified based on the fact that he's a u.s. attorney for a long time. an assistant attorney general for the criminal division for a short period of time, and
5:40 am
had good legal practice in the private sector. i think he comes well prepared. i'm going to be interested in making sure that an fbi director isn't going to be -- accept any political pressure from anybody. the fbi director has to be fbi director for the people of this country, and not as holder said, for the attorney general of being a wing man for the president of the united states. steve: so it sounds like you think he's going to sale through. >> that's the way it looks to me right now, yes. brian: all right. that was once the major story in this country. steve: we've got a lot of other stories. brian: senator, thanks so much. >> thank you. ainsley: thank you. have a great day. brian: all right. 18 minutes now before the top of the hour. next on our run down, rumors swirling about a shakeup of the federal reserve. who is the president's pick to replace janet yellen? and will it be good news for your wallet? even if it's a wonder wallet. charlie gasparino is coming up

5:47 am
in the federal reserve since the carter administration, and we know what happened back then. and here's the bottom line for republicans. he's not a republican. this was a barack obama supporting democrat for many years. i am, this is going to be one hell of a controversial pick if this is where donald trump goes. i mean, he can make it very easy on himself, pick a guy named kevin warsh who, again, has been a republican, he's got some academic background and economist. i don't know if he has a ph.d. but gary cohn has got lightning rod all over him. and i tell you, don't dismiss the goldman sachs part. remember, draining the swamp is what president trump said during the campaign, this guy -- listen, he's a smart guy. i actually like the guy, but he was part of that, you know, alleged swamp, let's say, and he was in knee-deep in goldman sachs activities during the financial crisis. so i just laid it out to you. not an easy pick. steve: absolutely. and so her term ends next year. we'll see if the president nominates him.
5:48 am
meanwhile, what exactly happens at sun valley? ainsley said there are a bunch of bigwigs out there. who are they and what do they do? >> well, our boss is out here, rupert maydock, the last time i was here, i was thrown out because i had an argument with a security guard. so just full disclosure there. and the security here is very, very tight. there is just about every major media mogul here. this is a place where deals get done. and i tell you, there's a lot of deals in this telecom media business right now. we know we have at&t, time warner. you know, that's very controversial because president trump came out against it because guess what? time warner is -- cnn is owned by time warner. he thinks it's too much concentration of media power with at&t, given its distribution. that's going to be talked a lot about here. disney. a lot of people talk about disney being in play, you know, because they have so much content and someone's going to buy them like a verizon. these are the types of stores that i'm going to try to break, and i'm going to give it to you guys.
