10:04 am
were willing to coptup until the last 24 hours. and so it doesn't come as a surprise, perhaps not. it is obvious that she knows something that the president doesn't know and there may be a smidgeon of corruption. >> it is nine and half months since the irs targeting scandal came to light. can you get to the bottom of it without lois lerner's testimony. >> she is a central figure in this and that is why it is critical to explore this. she is not only a central figure. but e-mails were exchanged and we know that today obviously there were areas of political concern in your e-mails and we need to hear from her if she is truly innocent, the american people would love to hear it. >> why not offer immunity. that may be what she's waiting for? >> as we look at. that the american people not
10:05 am
only to get to the bottom of it, but to also hold those people accountable. they want to hold people that are guilty accountable and make sure it doesn't happen again. >> will your committee hold her in contempt for taking the fifth so many times and answering the questions? >> there is a growing crescendo that they should hold her in contempt of congress and make sure the american people get what they deserve. >> is lois lerner collecting taxpayer dollars every month? >> she obviously has gone into retirement and so taxpayer dollars are paying for retirement and no longer on the payroll. but obviously has a duty to the american people. we have paid her salary and bonuses for many years and so it is time that she confesses and allows the american people to get to the bottom of it.
10:06 am
>> by confesses, you mean testifying? >> it is not just testifying, when we start to so the plethora of information coming out, all fingers point to her agency and her and those above her that they knew about it going back to 2010. it is not a new thing. we need to make sure the american people have their justification. >> what is next and what will your committee do now? >> we'll go back to so what our options are. a number of us believe she needs to be held in contempt and if she can bring forth something and highlight and allow the doj to get to the bottom of it, again we ned to restore trust in the american government. >> congressman mark meadows, thank you for your take on what happened and we appreciate it.
10:07 am
>> thank you so much. secretary of state john kerry finishing up a meeting with his russian counterpart in an attempt to defuse the ukranian crisis. there is source questions about america's intelligence capabilities and why russia's moves seem to catch the united states by surprise. senator, thank you for taking a few moments. the pentagon analyst said no troop movements in the next 24 hours, that was wrong. cia wa circumspect and said there are sign was intervention. with all of our eyes in the sky how can we miss large troph movements? >> it is surprising and the thing about this, why is it so shocking to the administration.
10:08 am
after the olympics, i said watch the behavior of the russians. look what happened with georgia, they have a naval base there that is important to them in crimea and for us to think that they weren't going to try to interfere denies history and a naive view of this. and also the intelligence community didn't report basic troph movements is trounling. >> you are on record that obama administration reset but the russia is a failure. >> the russians here are invading ukraine and providing arms to assad regime to murder their own people. and we have seen potential
10:09 am
violations that they are ins tr they stopped adoption and harming children so that americans could bring russians that don't have homes into american homes. they stopped that and putting children on the line. there are multiple examples of things and don't forget harboring snowden and it is a failure and miscalculation of putin. and it is time to assess the reset policy. >> the white house and administration is arguing that vladimar putin overstepped his bounds and acted precipitously and there are suggestions that he's pulling back. he got clobbered in the stock and financial markets and was a bit more concilulatory when she sat down with reporters,
10:10 am
might there be something to that? >> i don't think we should fall for. that we should any forward with economic sanctions and asset freezes. he would like us to think that he is pulling back. pulling back would be respecting ukranian sovereignty fully. we have not seen that yet. i think we should go forward with the economic sanctions and russia should not be permitted to go to the g- eight and we should move the g- eight out of russia we can't trust putin. he denied reality on the ground of what is happening in ukraine. and blatant lies about the involvement of his troops in crimea and we trust that he would pull back, when history suggests differently? >> it is a mistake to pull back the missile defense systems in europe? >> that was a mistake. when the president pulled back the missile defense in polapd
10:11 am
and chech republic it sent the wrong message to russia. we should revisit that decision because the russians have not acted differently. they are not acting like they should act. they have violated international law and other countries integrity. we need to protect ourselves and europe and look at reinstating those missile defense systems. that is a huge mistake by the president. >> senator, thank you for being with us. >> we are following the rapid changing developments the president obama spoke with president putin and secretary of state john kerry spoke with his russian counterpart and we are expecting to hear his comments and the tensions are high, is a peaceful solution possible?
10:12 am
>> and allegations of a obama care bail out. will taxpayers be on the hook for that? >> a victim of a hit and run. the police have it on tape and the search for the person behind the whole is on. geico motorcycle. see how much you could save.
10:13 am
10:14 am
10:15 am
a young girl is recovering today after a hit and run accident. it is difficult to watch this we warn you. that 14-year-old girl first appears on the right side of the screen and she is trying to run across the street and getting hit by two vehicles. she was trying to cross against a red light. the driver of the black sedan was arrested and charged with felony and hit and run and he left the scene after this. police are looking for the driver of the other vehicle. my goodness. call the authorities if you know
10:16 am
anything. >> and the president's new budget contained a hefty provision to a program. and david asbin is co-host of after the bell on the fox business network. well, the official language in the legislation, it is a risk corridor? but by any other name? >> there you go. there you go. two famous promises. no more bail outs and it will not add a dime to the deficit. 5.5 billion, and money to go to the insurance companies to make up for the fact that not enough young healthy people are applying for obama carry. only 25 percent of those are young and healthy. and marco rubio read the obama care bill and full health care
10:17 am
law and found this provision, butied dope inside of obama care section 1342, is authorization for what is known for risk corridors. this means when companies lose money dow to not enough people signing up for obama care as has been the case so far, taxpayers get stuck for the bill. the administration is calling it a temporary poll of money. now, maybe if you believe that obama care wasn't going to cost a dime you buy that explanation. most of the time when the government sends money in companies tdoesn't get the money back. >> i was looking at a summery of the budget proposal yesterday, he conveniently leaves out a chunk of spending. 60 billion in tax credit to finance the private coverage of obama care. i mean, that adds to the the deficit, does it not.
10:18 am
>> 60 billion by the way is shy of what we spend on food stamps for the entire year. the reason people missed it, it was not in the allooccasion for hhs. which is where most of obama care is rolling out for. it was in the allocation of the treasury department that oversees the irs. they will be administer ared by the irs under the treasury department umbrella. and people can say, and there is reason for it, that tax credits are not the same as spending, but the bottom line is, it adds to the deficit. 60 billion in tax credits and mostly small companies who can't afford to pay for the insurance is going to add to the deficit. extra spending by definition adds to the deficit. by the way, to be fair here cbo is saying it will be a billion. but excuse me, 18.
10:19 am
>> 8 billion. >> and well, the point is, they are claiming to get the money back eventually once obama care begins to pay off. the money that we spend on tarp spending, most of that money was paid back and there are precedents for companies that receive bail outs and paying back that money. it is anybody's guess. and judging on the basis of how obama care has gone so far, i don't think there is a good odd chance that the money will be paid back. president obama's budget that was released yesterday proposes to give hhs, health and human services now a trillions more. >> it is unbelievable. a trillion dollars would have been the entire budget and throw in the defense and everything. trillion shoes the commitment of the administration to all of the programs for the poor. we haven't seen an administration fund this much
10:20 am
and spend this much money in the transfer payments is what we call the money with food stamps and welfare, we haven't seen that much since lbj in the 1960s. it is unsustainable. ndavid asbin good to see you. thanks. >> opening arguments set to begin in the trial of this man, highest ranking al-qaeda member to be tried in a u.s. civilian court since the 9/11 terror attacks. >> terrifying scene, a family's mini-van races in the ocean and the dramatic rescue of the kids trapped inside and what the police are saying about what happened. >> folks may have the legal right to a loy each other. how sdo that work. >> we'll discuss it.

10:26 am
was not to plan 9/11 or carry it out, but it was one of propaganda and spread the word of jihad. and as he spoke, the prosecutor walked over to the defendant and pointed to him less than one to the away. he was wearing a dark suit and was motionless in the entire opening statement by the prosecution. and then they shed a still frame photoof him with osama bin laden that was taken one day after the attack on the twin towers. and he quoted the recording this is a call for jihad summoning you. he used the murderous power of his own words to rekraut fighters. as for the defense, the defense attorney said his client is not guilty and did consowed, you may not like what he said, and he called the remarks dumb and stupid and accused the
10:27 am
government of substituting the evidence. and outside of the court of house, the defense attorney said his client is holding up well considering the burden of a trial. >> times are difficult and painful and he's a strong man and has a value system and belief system that will guy get >> as you would expect security in lower manhattan, about ten blocks where the towers once stood. you have to pass through awe metal detector to enter into the building and a second mettol detector to enter into the second courtroom. the judge does not know the jurors napes. >> was rom no right and obama wrong when it came to russia. here is congressman paul ryan.
10:28 am
>> mitt was right. the president was naive on foreign policy and the reset is a failure. this is what happens when a super power shows weakness. ark gregz fells that vacum. >> the obstacle with the u.s. and trying to pressure putin in getting troops out of ukraine. >> if you are heading to america's most amazing place, this is what you see. what an amazing sight. >> we have watched lois lerner refuse to testify. we may have seen the last of her. will voters remember the irs scandal when they head to the polls in the fall. >> miss learner, why would you say tea party cases were dangerous? >> on the advice of my counsel i put my fifth amendment right and decloin to answer the question.

with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin but wondered, could i focus on something better? my doctor told me about eliquis for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three, unlike warfarin there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures.
10:30 am
those three important reasons are why i'm shooting for something better. eliquis. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

10:35 am
in a broader narrative that people don't trust the government and the conjectory is less and less trust every year and you know, this it preceded president obama and continued on his watch. and this feeds in the narrative that the people don't feel the government is accountable or trustworthy and adds to a narrative that exists and hurts the party in power. >> in her infamous apology that was a deceptive set up on may 10th. lois lerner said it is just rogue line people in cincinnati. documents now prove otherwise, that coast to coast officers were sending outlers to conservative groups and in fact, the chief counsel's office in washington d.c. was involved in this. does that undermine the president's claim that there is
10:36 am
not a smidgeon of corruption. >> of course it does. i may not be a lawyer like you. but first of all she takes us to a broader context of the dpft. that exists. here we are talking about the irs and it was used by the obama administration to target tea party groups and evafrjelical groups and unfortunately the store tore is now the argument that didn't happen. but focus on what needs to happen here. lois lerner pleads the fifth. hold her in contempt. second steps, offer her full immunicipality for testimony and two things can happen. if she takes full immunity and decides to offer testimony, we have an opportunity to find out what happened and the next step of that is darril issa to go after theires for codifying bad

behavior that shpt happen against left or right. if she doesn't take full immunity, can the administration and erebbing holder and all of the players protect her, or do we not have enough on her. americans are all over this country are sick of government, back to kisterns point that produces little result or solution and we the people need to threaten them in the ballot box. >> how does that translate to the ballot box? do democrats vote or not vote? >> i think it affects potting ways. it depresses the vote a bit. and people lose hope that things are different. and things like the irs situation, along with a lot of
10:38 am
other issues that happen could also mobilize people who are very frustrated with the government and want to register that from yous traying in t-- frustrating. and it is not good for the people if the government can't be trusted. and there are very few people that walk out of the voting booth say i voted because of the irs scandal. but they may say, i voted against the party in power because i can't trust them and they are not running the government well whether it is benghazi or this or health care or foreign policy. >> it was interesting. i want a quick answer on. this the president warning democrat donors that democrats have to weak up or they will
10:39 am
lose the senate. pretty ironic since the biggest issue that is hurting the democrats is the president's own signature achievement of obama care. >> bullet points. 30 fundraisers that are high dollar and a shadow organization organizing for america competting for the dnc for the money in the room and political capitol. it is all politics and warning the democrats and the democrats are concerned about main takening the societies like marylandrui. and uda hl. >> it will get worse. >> got it leave it at that. >> thank you. we are awaiting remarks from secretary of state john kerry after meeting with his russian counterpart on the ukraine

10:42 am
stop in the crimea peninsula and cities in the coal mining region and move against them and that will only further up the a nte in the stand off. >> will economic sanctions work on putin? >> they will help. you can see economic dislocation caused already by the fall in the stock exchange in moscow. but in and of themselves, they are not the only thing that can be done and a whole range of other measures have to be contemn plated. >> simon marks, great to see you. >> thank you, alisyn. >> meanwhile a high school student suing her own parents and the dramatic courtroom appearance and how the judge responded. >> could a california couple who stumbled on a stash of gold coins in their backyard be
