6:03 pm
you're watching the fox business network. latest on iranian protest to president trump's and impeachment push by democrats. hillary vaughn has more in washington. reporter: president trump is standing behind thousands of iranians protesting on the streets after the government admitted they accidentally shoot down the ukrainian jetliner shortly after it took off in tehran. videos of protests going viral what appears to be iranian security forces firing live ammunition and tear gas to break up protesters. the public backlash comes after the iranian government lied for days about what happened to the aircraft that crashed and killed every passenger on board, then tried to cover it up before vanely admitting that they did shoot down the plane. the president tweeting, his support of the people protesting and warning the iranian government saying quote, to the leaders of iran, do not kill your protesters.
6:04 pm
thousands have already been killed or imprisoned by you and the world is watching. more importantly the usa is watching. turn your internet back on and let reporters roam free. stop the killing of your greater iranian people. the president continues to defend the decision taking out iranian general qassem soleimani saying this afternoon on the white house north lawn, that he was a terrorist that needed to be taken out after secretary of defense mark esper says the intelligence backs up the president's decision but esper would not specifically confirm that he had intel that four u.s. embassies were imminent risk. but also, gop senator tom cotton saying on fox news channel that he did see intelligence supporting the move. >> i've seen the intelligence he was plotting something large, something very dangerous. whether it happened in a matter of weeks or a matter of days. >> we had exquisite intelligence only shared with the "gang of eight." i understand the frustration of many members of congress. it was shared with that "gang of
6:05 pm
eight." i spoke to one of briefers. one of the briefer, told me, most all members of the "gang of eight" believed the intelligence was persuasive as well. reporter: liz, this afternoon the chinese trade delegation landing in d.c. to sign the phase one china trade deal after the united states treasury removing china as a currency manipulator. liz: thanks so much for your reporting. back to iranian people as hillary reported risking their lives again, thousands pouring into the streets against the iranian regime. as iran's own politicians and iran's official news agency saying now that lying to the public about iran shooting down that ukrainian plane was catastrophic. that officials who lie must be prosecuted. new disturbing video, protesters again hit with live ammo, water cannons, tear gas, protesters calling their leaders, quote, the people's shame. murderers, shouting death to the dishonest supreme leader, death
6:06 pm
to liars. social media showed iran showing photos of general soleimani who many call a sadistic terror mastermind. iranians avoid stepping on the american flag out of respect. the debate. who isthe right side of history? nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, adam schiff, jerry nadler, president obama none of them for the fully supporting the iranian protesters. many staying silent. democrats continue the obama legacy turning a tone deaf ear to the oppression of iranian people. watch nancy pelosi seemingly to dismiss the protests in iran. saying there are different reasons why there are people in the street. >> the fact that this there were protesters in the streets before against the regime. after the taking out of soleimani, there were protesters in the streets joined together as you know, against us. that wasn't good. but there are different reasons why people are in the streets. of course we would love to see the aspirations of the people of
6:07 pm
iran realized with a better situation there but escalating the situation, unless we have exhausted every other remedy. >> which we haven't? >> well, we don't know that? liz: critics saying this is pretty lukewarm response from nancy pelosi. bring in retired u.s. marine lieutenant colonel dakota wood. colonel, you're reaction? >> liz, i'm kind of stunned by the silence and lukewarm support. if we look back at battle days of the cold war, ronald reagan, margaret thatcher, pope john paul ii banded together to talk about soviet repression and the same thing is occurring today in terms of this popular uprising. it is an amazing and inspirational moment when you see the protesters take to the street, at risk of their own lives, their livelihoods and family members to make a statement against the regime.
6:08 pm
this is mistake to focus on the iranian government response to shoot down the liner this is building. america taking out soleimani really showed the iranian regime is not untoughable and it opened a window of opportunity for them to express themselves at great hazard and the '90 couldn't do anything better than to support what is going on. liz: president joe biden, amy klobuchar speaking out to the protesters. president showed solidarity with iranians, saying iran don't kill your own people. here he is today on this issue. watch this. >> all the became sys were alerted. that is why we deployed additional troops to the region. let me say this much, jake. i'm glad we're having this discussion. i would rather be here discussing this topic with you. >> i think it has been totally consistent. but here is what has been consistent. we killed soleimani, the number one terrorist in the world by every account. bad person, killed a lot of
6:09 pm
americans, killed a lot of people. we killed him. and when the democrats try to defend him it is a disgrace to our country. they can't do that. let me tell you it is not working politically very well for them. so we killed the number one terrorist in the world, soleimani and it should have been done 20 years ago. see you at the game. thank you. liz: your reaction? >> soleimani the chief architect of a web of organizations all designed to undermine local governments, intimidate and coerce populations and extend iranian influence throughout the middle east. so just as we would applaud taking down a drug cartel, drug lord and other terrorist masterminds i think this attack against soleimani was the right thing to do, it was the right moment to do it. we're seeing benefits of this, again, empowering the protesters to speak up against this regime that is in tehran. we need to provide them this kind of support coming from the white house. liz: iran's street protests is ongoing off and on since the
6:10 pm
green revolution. that the obama administration ignored because president obama want ad legacy after iran nuke deal. "bloomberg news" reporting a few years ago quoting from a new book at that time by "wall street journal" reporter jay solomon, obama feared demonstrations would sabotage the the secret outreach to iran and obama ordered cia to. obama ordered cia to stand down here. chuck schumer cited numerous problems with the nuclear deal in 2015 so iran would be a free to build a nuclear weapon. i want to move on to joe biden saying only way out of this is diplomacy. your reaction to that? >> diplomacy enforced on streets of tehran. if the regime is not acceptable to the good world order, we don't want to remove it by force. that would be disasterous, the change has to come from within. it will not come willingly with
6:11 pm
the regime stepping down. the people have to determine their own fate. that is what they're doing in these popular protests. these are not paid by the government. they're speaking against the government at great risk to themselves as i already said. this is democracy in action. isn't this something we should be championing an applauding and really trying to help push forward? at least rhetorically and diplomatically. liz: colonel, great to see you. thank you for your insights, service to our country. thanks for coming in. >> my pleasure, liz. liz: come back soon. more details from the border tonight, from the falling number of illegal immigrants apprehended to a pair of high-stakes court rulings over building border walls. fox news william la jeunesse has the story. reporter: the wall was a major campaign promise, what the administration has 100 miles in three years isn't much, liz but if you consider the lawsuits and efforts to stop it. president trump won most of fights.
6:12 pm
acting dhs secretary, chad wolf says they can build a mile of fence today and credits it, forcing migrants to remain in mexico for decline in border apprehensions. >> we're trying to shift illegal apprehensions into areas easier to patrol and ports of entry there is a mitted to to our strategy and it is working. reporter: new wall is replace as barrier which stops no one from walking across the bored. in south texas, the administration challenged but failed to stop construction of a private three-mile wall along the rio grande river which the administration claims will injure wildlife and damage the flood plane. in the last seven months, border apprehensions declined 70%, many central americans stayed home realize they will be forced to wait in mexico for a their day in u.s. court. wolfe and martha mcsally
6:13 pm
defend the policy that migrants call unsafe. [speaking spanish] reporter: do you think these places are safe, tijuana, mat mat mat? >> it is our responsibility to make america safe. we have to secure the border and asylum everything you have to come legally here to the country is upheld and not take advantage of our country. reporter: wall construction is piecemeal. five miles here. 10 miles there. some new construction replaces old fence and some is new linear fence along the border. the administration hopes to finish 450 miles by the end of 2020. liz? liz: william la.

♪. liz: to the latest on impeachment. house speaker nancy pelosi taking aim at republicans warning that senators will pay a price if witnesses are blocked at a senate trial. this as nancy pelosi is expected to deliver the impeachment articles to the senate this week. fox news's chad pergram joins us with more. chad, great to see you. reporter: likewise. tomorrow is a big day on capitol hill as pelosi meets with democrats to conduct the next steps on impeachment. they have to have a short vote to send the articles to the senate. that could come wednesday or thursday. they pack them in cherry boxes march them across to the capitol and the senate. we will learn the name of impeachment managers, prosecuting house's case in the senate. they must approve a resolution to receive the articles.
6:19 pm
if the house votes tuesday or wednesday the senate could start the trial thursday this weeks. the first day is ceremonial. the meat of the trial may not start until next week. now there are 26 rules governing impeachment in the senate. if the senate does anything outside of that realm it must take a vote. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says he has 51 votes to handle the things the way they did for president clinton trial. senators must sit at their desk 24 hours total to hear the house managers present their case. 24 hours for the president's defense team to rebut the house. 16 hours for questions. at that point, they could go to witnesses. senate impeachment rules dictate the trial starts every day one p.m., saturdays included. federal holidays included. clinton's trial consumed 100 hours in 1999. republican senator susan collins working behind the scenes to forge an agreement on witnesses. chuck schumer could engineer votes to put vulnerable republican senators facing
6:20 pm
challenging re-election campaigns on spot. those include collins, thom tillis, cory gardner, and martha mcsally of arizona. liz? liz: chad, thank you very much. we're tracking information coming in that president says pelosi and house intelligence chair adam schiff should testify. as even members of the media saying pelosi's strategy is failing. that includes this "washington post" journalist. watch this. >> she is clearly putting a positive spin on what a lot of democrats privately said was a failed strategy. she and chuck schumer minority leader in the senate set out number one try to get a commitment from mcconnell first-hand witnesses to have them testify in senate trial. she wanted to see a resolution about you know, how the whole proceedings would be governed. she got neither of those. liz: democrats credibility on impeachment getting worse by the hour. it is being called hurry up and wait impeachment. pelosi finally moving on something she said herself would
6:21 pm
be divisive to the country. look who is here. republican ben klein, member of house judiciary. good to see you, sir. your reaction to all of that? >> goes to show you nancy pelosi doesn't understand her power ends at the end of the house chamber and where the senate begins. mitch mcconnell takes over t wouldn't surprise me if she tried to follow the articles of impeachment down the hall and ask where her desk was in the senate. she is so anxious to play a roll in the senate. she is trying to leverage her power to get witnesses secured in a senate trial. but she is been sober over these last three weeks, learning that, that is not in the cards for her. she doesn't get to call the shots. liz: nancy pelosi went on abc's show, this week, left open the door to filing even more articles of impeachment. she is talking now about impeachment quote, forever, for life. so is impeachment now downgraded, degraded into a political weapon? >> absolutely. she has lowered the bar for impeachment. adam schiff lowered the bar to a point where it is political tool box for the majority to wield
6:22 pm
against a president. if they don't behave the way the majority in the house wants, they will charge him with abuse of power and that is going to go on forever now, hopefully we'll be able to restore it in a future republican-controlled house but you know what? she has done enormous damage to the constitution and to the rule of law by pursuing this low bar for impeachment. liz: originally democrats claimed they had proof of bribery, even obstruction in the mueller report. neither of those in the impeachment articles. sir, polls show about half of voters don't support impeachment. "des moines register," new poll of iowans show that too. why adopt impeachment articles and then demand that the senate do what the house didn't get the testimony of witnesses? she doesn't have any, you know what i mean? that is an issue there, right? go ahead. >> absolutely. nancy pelosi wants the senate to do her job for her. not only does she want to do the senate's job, now she wants them to call witnesses that adam schiff couldn't get in the
6:23 pm
house, because he was so anxious to rush impeachment through, that they wouldn't wait for the courts. you know, that is, the joke is about this impeachment. she is refusing to wait for the courts to act. then she goes to charge him with abuse of power and obstruction of congress. liz: let's show a context here. the polls seem to show american voter sees the democrats have been wanting to overturn the 2016 election within months of the president being inaugurated. it is not just that they wanted to get rid of the electoral college, they wanted to get rid of trump. demonstrates started to file nine impeachment articles or resolutions within six months of the president's inauguration. it has been the democrats main focus since even before trump took office on and on. so what i want to go to next, sir, is that i want to show the viewer, show the american people, what the democrats have been saying even before trump took office. watch this. >> he richly deserves impeachment.
6:24 pm
he has done many impeachable offense. >> impeach 45. [cheering] impeach 45. >> we believe president trump has violated contution. we introduced five articles of impeachment. >> i'm concerned if we don't impeach this president he will get reelected. >> we began impeachment proceedings now. liz: do you think the american people see that the democrats and the, even many in the media have been pushing to get rid of trump within months of him being elected? >> absolutely. trump derangement syndrome is alive and will. now she is trying to slow down the trial so that it helps her friend joe biden get the nomination for president. it is politics all the day every day for nancy pelosi. no change here in the beginning of the year. liz: thank you, congressman. good to see you. coming up, more on both obama and clinton democrats now warning that bernie sanders will damage the democrat party once again this election year as a big new fight is breaking out between bernie sanders and elizabeth warren. coming up.

♪. liz: welcome back. you're watching the fox business network. we're coming into the bottom of the hour. a big fight now breaking out as the 2020 democrats finally realize they are running against each other. bernie sanders campaign now attacking elizabeth warren as sanders now finds himself in first place in iowa just three weeks out from the caucus there. fox news peter doocy joins us from winterset, iowa with more. peter. reporter: liz, the primary fight for progressive hearts and minds has been pretty polite until now because cnn is reporting that bernie sanders privately told elizabeth warren he does not think a woman can win and the warren campaign is not reacting at all to this report yet but bernie sanders is out with a statement where he says in part, it is ludicrous to believe the same meeting where elizabeth warren told me she would run for
6:30 pm
president, i would tell her that a woman couldn't win. sanders insisted sunday he has never say anything negative about warren when he was asked about a different report by "politico" his volunteers were working off of a script that tells undecided iowa democrats warren can't bring any new bases into the party. >> i was disappointed to hear that bernie is sending his volunteers out to trash me. bernie knows me and has known me for a long time. he knows who i am, where i come from, what i have worked on and fought for. i hope bernie reconsiders and turns his campaign in a different direction. reporter: but sanders insists with that one his hands are clean. >> i got to tell i think it's a little bit after media blowup that -- [inaudible] elizabeth warren is a very good friend of mine. we have worked together in the senate for years.

6:32 pm
with warren. >> it will come to the head when they are on the debate stage. this is not something where elizabeth warren could push it off some stupid staffer put out because the source of the story is elizabeth warren. a little strange to see at that time warren campaign is refusing to comment on a story that clearly came from their candidate. when they're on the stage together, bernie is going to be faced, senator sanders will be faced with the option of calling her a liar or apologizing. either one might be a loss for them. either way it is going to be for the viewers a head-to-head battle for bernie sanders versus liz warren on this story and i do think that it, with him denying it, and also old video footage coming out of bernie sanders in the '80s as mayor of burlington, talking about a woman being president, there is a lot on the internet coming out that backs up, not really in his character to have said something like this. liz: yesterday also, elizabeth warren ripping sanders over a report in "politico" alleging
6:33 pm
that sanders campaign quietly told volunteers, hey, tell voters warren would be a weak candidate, her appeal is limited to highly-educated affluent people bringing no new voters into the democrat party. that is another fight too. >> that is entirely true. the fact sheet bernie sanders campaign put outlaid out how to attack multiple candidates for surrogates on the campaign trail. sanders may distance himself from that to blame staffers, there has to be lessons learned for sanders who waited a long time to take the gloves off against hillary clinton and ended up losing when she went negative on him. he should be willing to go to war. at least his staff for the main part are willing to fight for a candidate they may believe in. liz: quick final word, the obama campaign official, jim messina says president trump would love to run against bernie sanders. bernie sanders trying to invoke jfk and fdr with ads in iowa. we have run stories about how bernie sanders has said back in

some people say that's ridiculous. age is just an illusion. how you show up for the world, that's what's real. what's your idea? i put it out there with a godaddy website. ♪. liz: president trump now questioning why a controversial former justice department official david kris was appointed by the fisa court reforms of the wiretaps. bring in former assistant deputy director of the fbi. he is danny coulson. your reaction to that, this appointment? >> whoever they appoint has to
6:51 pm
be above reproach. the track record of this individual is questionable with regard to fiz court. my problem should the fisa court be involved in the revisions. that is job for fbi director and attorney general. if the fisa court doesn't work it, has become so cumbersome that the fbi can't get information through the court to get a warrant, then we're in big trouble in our country. fisa is absolutely essential to our security. we need to make sure it works and protects the constitution and worksable, not so cumbersome that it doesn't work at all. liz: david kris reportedly recently claimed the inspector general report of the justice department vindicated the fbi. he also wrote that the fbi was correct in assessing there was probable cause to believe carter page was a secret russian spy. he attacked devin nunes for blowing the whistle on fbi fisa abuses. he was quote, dishonest.
6:52 pm
your reaction to his reremarks are here? >> dead wrong is the answer to that. the fbi as an entity was not exonerated. we've seen the director and his minions caused all problems in the name of the fbi. fbi agents didn't do this case. i guess you could split hairs saying the fbi agents were exonerate ad and mr. comey was not exonerated. i think he misspoke. i don't know how he could come up with that conclusion. the i.g. spotted 17 problems in that warrant application. that is a lot. that doesn't exonerate anybody. liz: that's a great point. we have to wait for john durham 's criminal probe to come to, criminal probe of the russia probe. your reaction to that? >> totally agree with that. director wray has been criticized not moving forward with discipline. he can't do anything until durham finishes the criminal inquiry. we have to see if there is any
6:53 pm
criminal prosecution. most of the players are not in the fbi anymore. they were fired for other reasons. let's see what happens. i think durham is a reasonable man. i think the attorney general will get to the bottom with him. i look forward to seeing what happened. liz: danny coulson. come back soon. love for having you on. >> always enjoy it. liz: national border patrol council president brandon judd on new data that show the trump administration border security policies are working. the story next.

[♪] liz: a new border patrol statistic showing the trump administration policy is work. brandon judd joins us now. apprehensions down for 7 straight months. down 70% since may. your reaction? >> it's because president trump decided he was not longer going to try to deal with congress or work with congress because congress was failing to do anything. and he struck deals with countries like mexico and guatemala. and because of those deals he struck, we have seen a tremendous drop in illegal immigration. liz: canada and europe have enacted deals as well. the federal appeals court, the fifth circuit court of appeals

green lighted the administration using pentagon funds redirecting to build the wall. how fast can that money be put to use there. and talk about drug seizures up at the border. >> this was not a decision that was unexpected. we knew they were going to step in and make the right rule. they act upon the rule of law and what the law says. the fifth circuit stepped in and said he could use that. these walls are desperately needed, they allow the border patrol to dictate where illegal drug flows take place. if we can dictate where that takes place, we can be a lot more successful and save an awful lot of lives in the united states. liz: seizures of fentanyl up 80% the last year. seizures of heroin up 27%. what's your quick reaction on

john kerry saying it was joe biden who helped stop the illegal immigration at the border. your reaction to that. >> that's absolutely laughable. if it wasn't for president obama and de facto joe biden and their policies we wouldn't have this crisis we are dealing with. sit was their policies that brought about the child immigration crisis. president trump had to deal with it. and he's done a marvelous job dealing with the crisis and we are no longer in that same state we used to be in. liz: are you looking anytime soon for the democrats to have a debate on border ask security? >> no. the democrats know they have standard of practice serious border ask security problem. they know if they get in office which i don't believe they are going to. but if they get in office they

know they will have a problem and the public will rise up against shell again. they don't want to talk about it. liz: lou dobbs next.
