congress and here to weigh in, francey hakes. thank you for joining us. what is your take on this? did he get what he deserved? >> interesting question. with respect to the sentencing guidelines themselves it seems like a fair sentence. it is a normal guideline range the discounts that absurd sentence the mueller prosecution team asked for and the enhancement they thought applied that would made him looking at 7 to 9 years instead of 3 to 4 but when you look at the case of selective prosecution that is where it is difficult to say he was treated fairly. it is clear to me he did what he is accused him. he lied to congress. when you look at other people similarly situated people who lied to congress and lied to the fbi when they have a democrat next to their name or affiliated with the democrats it doesn't seem as though they are prosecuted where is everyone
associated with trump or republicans who do the same thing are prosecuted and that is what i am concerned about with respect to the department. >> komi, mccabe, brennan, how do you think it is possible for that situation to be rectified? >> i hope william barr will clean house but i'm worried because director ray at the fbi does not seem to think there was any systemic problem it the fbi. he said, quote, most of the people who conducted this, these offenses against the president lying to the fisa court are gone but they are not all wrong and you have prosecutors who seem to be making decisions only one side of the aisle. it is going to take a very sweeping action by the attorney general to put a stop to what looks to me to be partisan actions bipartisan prosecutors.
heather: was there one thing that happened recently that led you to believe these prosecutors are not in fact nonpartisan? >> it was the letter they signed, a very clear illustration that the department is full of political lawyers and lawyers on the left and the right but two -- you have 2000 former department of justice employees sign a letter demanding that william barr resign when all he did was recommend the same sentence the obama appointed judge found to be entirely reasonable. these 2000 former lawyers from doj insisted attorney general william barr is acting as the president's personal lawyer and it is so egregious that he must resign, that shows more clearly than anything else that the department of justice is full of people who are perfectly willing to play politics instead of be the neutral prosecutors justice demands.
heather: that might be why the white house has a new team of advisors to guide donald trump on clemency as he considers more pardons. is that a good way to cut through the bias that exists in the justice department? >> the office of the department of attorney, doj has been controversial among the defense community and the left, you have prosecutors fitting requests from prisoners that they themselves have imprisoned. it makes sense to me because the president has the responsibility and accountability ultimately for all pardons. i understand why he wants to bring that into the white house especially when you consider it seems to be important to him and there are bureaucrats at doj that he believes acted inappropriately and even illegally in the russia investigation. why would he trust them to do
anything? heather: we will see what happens moving forward. he did indicate he would not do anything until after the election in terms of roger stone. thank you for joining us, appreciate it, have a great weekend. the time is 19 after the top of the hour. amazon wants to set up shop in a chicago suburb and add 1500 jobs. why the town's mayor is saying thanks but no thanks. a belly busting challenge. the nfl lineman who tackled a 72 hour steak and won. here with social media reaction to the footballer's feast.
twitter dunk of the century, steve scalise delivering a fact check to keith ellison after he suggested now ernie sanders supporters are mean. carly shimkus with serious xm 115 with the reaction to this one and almost instantly anyone who read that. >> reporter: bernie sanders was forced to defend his supporters after several candidates complain his fans were harassing them online. on wednesday attorney general keith ellison said i have never seen bernie sanders supporters mean or rude. someone send me an example of a bernie bro being bad. are beholding all candidates responsible for the behavior of their supporters? waiting to hear. steve scalise issued a swift response 8 i can think of an example who was shot at congressional baseball practice
by a sanders supporter in 2017. his response going viral on social media. one twitter user says send keith ellison a copy of your hospital bill. you been twitter today and so glad you are doing well. sanders says 99% of his supporters are good, hard-working people but can't forget. heather: the next one is funny. michael bloomberg facing criticism for this altered debate moment. >> i'm the only one here whoever started a business. is that fair? >> people are complaining the footage was edited to include that lengthy silence. here is the real moment from the debate. >> i'm the only one here whoever started a business. is that fair? okay.
>> that was funny too. donald trump has been criticized for posting edited footage but a lot of people saying this should promote the debate, just as you lost that debate in horrific fashion, a few hundred million on ads and leave last night behind. another twitter user says he won the debate if we added out actual responses and put in responses that reflect more favorably upon you than reality. heather: move past the debate the next one. let's talk about could you ever eat a 72 ounce steak? carley: i'm up for this challenge. baltimore defensive lineman bradley bozeman crushed a food challenge at a texas steakhouse that included a 72 ounce steak

heather: look at our top headline so far this morning. starting with a fox news alert. doomsday called mother lori balogh hours from facing a judge after being arrested in the disappearance of her children. joshua and 17-year-old kiley ryan have not been seen since september. val oh and her husband chad have been on the run since november. more rain in the south on the way, massive storm moving to mississippi, alabama and georgia. jackson, mississippi is on high alert after severe flooding devastated the state capital. donald trump considering doug collins to be the director of
national intelligence. this week the president in us ambassador to germany richard brunel as acting director. we are one day from the nevada caucuses but after the disaster in iowa they are not promising same day results this time around, talks a brokered convention growing matter. can democratic voters trust their own party to nominate the candidate they vote for? here to debate attorney and former bush administration advisor adultoh franco and kathy carew. bernie sanders on delegates and the vote. listen. >> the process includes 500 superdelegates on the second battle. i think the will of the people, the person with the most votes.
heather: what do you think of this? can voters trust the process? >> not after iowa, i don't think anyone trust the process. no one is trusting the government in general these days. trusting anyone at this point, i am sorry, even they know, they are making the standards a really low. heather: they will not use the same apps they did in iowa but they are not making any promises. we have a fox news voter analysis survey, how confident are you democratic party process to select the presidential nominee is fair? this says 60% are confident. does that surprise you? >> 40% that aren't and that number will grow larger. there is 0 confidence. the chairman of the democratic
party said that accuracy is there northstar, they need a new compass because it is not working. the process has failed. it is likely not to work in nevada as well. this coupled with what you have just shown about bernie sanders, there is growing suspicion this thing is cooked. for democratic party it is not democratic when they have a safety valve in their party, 500 delegates to decide the party bosses, who the nominee is. they have a person like bernie sanders who is not their first choice. it is bad for democratic voters. this lack of confidence will only grow in the months ahead. heather: it will be interesting to see what happens. when you look at latino voters in nevada bernie sanders has the edge going into it. >> i run a hispanic magazine for
18 years and none of my readers are behind bernie sanders. when you talk about socialism and communism the reason they are in this country is to avoid socialism and communism from the countries they left. not exactly bernie sanders fans. heather: what do you think of that? >> donald trump won the latino vote in nevada and 2016 caucuses. most of us find socialism and bernie sanders apartment. michael bloomberg called him a communist. there is name recognition. i believe he and biden will do well. i think klobuchar's statement, she doesn't know who the president of mexico is and sits on the foreign relations committee. the democratic party is in disarray. it is name recognition, the
sanders number. i don't think he is strong with voters, he never identified on any issue of significance for latinos. heather: you left out michael bloomberg in the names you were discussing. who do you think will be the next to drop out of the race and what about bloomberg? >> i have to tell you based on the democratic debate performance, donald trump is the clear winner. i think he is that they have all lost in that debate in many ways. i have to think the weakest performance and likeliest person to drop out if you had to single one of them would be amy klobuchar. she is lacking in the polls. her disastrous performance with respect to latino voters particularly on the mexico issue will cost her a significant amount of support. i put my money on klobuchar being the weakest candidate.
heather: they are in vegas. you are shaking your head, clearly you don't agree. >> i don't think anyone is going to drop out. you don't see anyone leave after the primaries and caucuses. it will be down to bloomberg, sanders and trump, those are the ones to watch, they are staying in and the ones to watch. heather: donald trump is staying in. >> they can only stay in so long as they have money and that will dry up quickly. in south carolina next week. heather: bloomberg has a lot of money, he can stay in as long as he wants. >> warren and klobuchar will have a hard time raising funds. heather: thank you for joining us, appreciate it. passengers leave a quarantines cruise ship in japan, will take

heather: former congressman trey gowdy sounding off on a report that russia is trying to middle in the 2020 election. >> i don't know anyone who things russia prefers donald trump to win over comrade sanders. they make assessments and give those assessments but give them to people like adam schiff. this never should have been made public. that is why the president is upset. heather: intelligence officials warned lawmakers about russian interference in a closed-door briefing. reports say the news pushed donald trump to replace national intelligence director joseph maguire. the president naming ambassador richard brunel as acting vn i. matt gates taughts of you cohost about the democratic party. watch this.

public people. you might see an orange or red label under a tweet you can see on screen, prominently displayed below the tweet. one possible version twitter is looking at maybe adding corrected information from fact checkers or journalists verified by twitter. another idea is community reports feature where people like wikipedia could weigh in but this is something they want to address this critical information. we have seen misleading tweets from politicians, bernie sanders, kevin mccarthy, don't know the exact rollout of when they plan to do this but this is an idea they are looking at. heather: almost 15 minutes until the top of the hour. a war hero getting a shout out from the commander-in-chief. >> irvine julian, thank you. >> a special moment for a
