tv   America Reports With John Roberts Sandra Smith  FOX News  July 27, 2021 10:00am-12:00pm PDT

10:00 am
including opening remarks and additional questions for witnesses. >> you've been watching coverag of the democratic led the selec committee hearing on the events of january the sixth. we've heard from a few officers who responded to the right of the capital. i'm john roberts in washington. >> this all began about 9:30:00 a.m. eastern time. going to the 1:00 hour obviousl we've heard some very compellin testimony from many of the officers that are on duty at th capital that they.
10:01 am
the description from his officers is how they thought they were going to die that day. the threat has not gone away an that one point the republicans sitting on the committee went from laughter to tears at one point describing why was so important for him to stand up i the face of what happened. the house minority leader has submitted five republicans to the panel. kevin mccarthy told the rest of the.
10:02 am
we saw a lot of very dramatic video that we saw initially played during the insurrection on january 6th. >> if you are watching you saw compelling at times damning emotional testimony from these four officers that held the lin to try to protect the capital and the lawmakers inside. for anybody watching and watch the videos their testimony abou that day and thought it wasn't violent think it's an eye-opener. we talked about january 6th a lot in the time since then but putting it all together and seeing it again is jarring. listening to these officers say how they wanted to fight and hold onto their lives you've mentioned he said he was being beaten and finally what he thought it was coming to an end he yelled out i have kids.
10:03 am
he thought that would get some sympathy from the people that were beating him. event went on to any opening statement say how upset he was in hopes that he was with the indifference of some of these people during that day as they downplayed the significance of the day at one point slamming his head on a table. he said this cannot stand. why republicans politically are saying that this is a partisan effort and that they charge tha it's not going to get to the questions about january 6th while it is so ill-prepared for what happened that day? you can't watch the testimony and say that's not a big deal. he can't what the testimony and say that there were questions taking place and i don't know where we're going to go yet.
10:04 am
>> to the point about the questions that many republicans feel they have that went unanswered they claim in this testimony kevin mccarthy is one of them. he said you won't hear this fro the committee what was in the national guard here? what changes are needed to be sure it never happens again? these republicans have a point that some of these questions were not asked. today this is the opening setting of the table but i thin that you've heard from liz that they are going to ask every question about who was doing what in the capital but also in the white house. you would hope that down the road you get to those questions about actual security presence
10:05 am
in the conditioning of the national guard. as well as the speaker's role i overseeing capital security the presence and what that might look like going forward i do think they are going to get to the stirring up question. they're going to to get to dismissing the fbi today i thin david set the front. >> again we saw this back in january during the impeachment proceedings. we need to know if somebody in power was influencing all of this that would apparently be a nodded to the president and the speech that he gave that mornin
10:06 am
and both thompson was a chair o the select committee as well as liz has said they haven't ruled out the issuance of subpoenas t the former president as well as others in his circle the human expect that we could see this? this would be a pretty strong precedent and potentially be a very large hill to climb. >> i wouldn't put it past the committee listening to the opening statements as you mentioned they both said they want to get to the bottom of every communication and every back-and-forth i would expect a few of the trumps and others that were in the white house that they to be asked and subpoenaed to be questioned. what the battle looks like as far as testimony we will have t see how this plays out.
10:07 am
>> thank you for sticking aroun with us through the hearing thi morning. as we mentioned we are bringing in the congressman is one of th few nominees. he joins us now thank you for joining us we still have live photos up on capitol hill after the hearing has concluded for the day but can you first react to how you saw your republican colleagues handle their roles o this committee? let me say these are tragic stories and a tragic day in january 6th. the stories these officers had to tell our stories and experiences that never should have happened. i heard an officer say somethin that is most notable in this entire hearing in that thought they were not prepared for what happened that they. if what had been allowed to be in that room and do my duty as
10:08 am
ranking member of the committee i would've asked a question tha neither of my constituents asked. would've asked him to impact statement. last week i demanded the capito police union chief represent 90 percent of the rank-and-file members and the men and ladies that serve to protect us protec my staff and family everyday wh would we not allow another voic in the voice of the capital police union to be on hand to give his testimony he was rejected from being in the room to testify. he would've unpacked the question why weren't they prepared? is it a systemic failure of leadership at the highest level that left them unprepared?
10:09 am
two travesty and part of the hearing you did not hear fully examined. in the run-up to days committee proceedings you said the committee is meant to align the conservatives and justify the authoritarian agenda after what you witnessed with the compelling testimony do you still believe this is the agenda? >> imagine where this goes from here without a minority leader being allowed to submit my name the voice of the minority was taken away. congress was created by our founders and never in history a they rejected names of the minority party to participate i
10:10 am
the hearing like this it has a long ways to go it's not lost that everything that comes out of -- they want to talk about her narrative without looking at other narratives. >> he spent a lot of his time questioning this morning it too time to criticize his fellow republicans holding him directl they have treated this as just another partisan fight he's named kevin mccarthy by name he went on the record this morning saying i'm a republican number conservative in order to kill the damage caused that they would need to call out facts.
10:11 am
he accepted this assignment to serve on this committee tragic stories in the capital police officers experiences that never should have happened. if those that saw the capital police they had done their job we would have trained them and given the better equipment we would have warned them about th intelligence report and january 6th could have been a lot different had to do my job with true leadership at the top why did this not happen and why are these questions not being asked the committee? let me ask a few questions firs of all if you watch the video that we saw today and was seen
10:12 am
in the past or very similar if it's a nonviolent protest you are on the wrong side of histor do you believe the commission i going to get to the bottom of what happened? >> let me take the most important question first. clearly it's politically designed by the democrats to stop republicans for winning back the majority. they want to talk about january 6th and what the republicans did. we're pushing the stuff on the troops in the military. every word that comes at her bu is not on the committee has bee strategically designed to fit the narrative without another
10:13 am
side in the room to ask questions. i don't know any of their publi conflict myself that want to serve on this committee that will ever minimize what happened. if those responsible are not held accountable this will remain a cancer on the country. if they are capable of getting to the bottom of this are you willing to wait for the?
10:14 am
>> i spoke with the head of the capital police union. he said the capitol hill writer have better equipment and the capital police officers. why did they lack the equipment and training to handle what happened that day they had warnings that something could happen. we could really investigate wha happened. >> we will see if these questions are asked. they will leave no stone unturned obviously subpoenaing
10:15 am
somebody we could prevent this member happen again i don't see why that would be a protective measure. >> we have a congressman coming up in just a little while to give insights onto the hearing and what life questioning he ma have pursued. meanwhile it's a very busy newsday because we have another story for you now. >> standing by for new guidance on a mask. early reports suggest some
10:16 am
people are going to be wearing masks again. >> all of this is the delta variant spreads these are just few places that are acquiring mask. he is in atlanta the home over the cdc where we dissipate an update. >> a federal official told fox news that they are expected to announce today they had indoor public setting in a community where there is widespread
10:17 am
transmission. is essentially two things going on. although vaccines offer protection breakthrough infections occur which is why health experts have been wearin masks when they go to the grocery store. >> i would do that if any group setting. whether it's a wedding or a funeral any kind of group activity where there are people that are unsure if everybody is vaccinated. >> and they're also expected to recommend everybody were masks to school. they've artie announced all students and staff will have to wear a mask this fall regardles of whether they been vaccinated although children are in lower risk.
10:18 am
school officials say they are concerned that this variant may be three times more transmittable than the original virus. children are still ineligible for the vaccine it still only 1 are fully vaccinated and 58 percent of employees safe they've either been vaccinated or they plan to get vaccinated. these levels are not high enoug to instill confidence. it will affect all of us to som degree. for more what's bring in doctor mark and we've heard again and again and it's going to last more than a month that people are vaccinated can still contract the virus. suddenly a reversal on this in the circumstances we have the new guidance following the science.
10:19 am
some of the science is not in yet. this is a reaction to the delta variant and it's at least 2-3 times more transmittable than the original virus was. even if you are vaccinated and let me be clear your chances of spreading this are extremely lo compared to if you're unvaccinated. your chances of being hospitalized if you are vaccinated is extremely low. the problem they are looking at is if you are vaccinated can yo carry it and can you spread thi to somebody that the high-risk somebody that's immunocompromised somebody that can't be protected that's what they are looking at. studies in schools have shown that children are less than 1 percent likely to spread to
10:20 am
another child. this in his advance ovarian. parents are going to fight back and it's only a recommendation it's not a mandate but local municipalitie can go about this anyway they want. recommendations at the local level can immediately become mandates whether it be a local municipalities they can say thi is of the cdc says we should be doing so we should go ahead and do it. i wanted to ask you about something else because it's ver important. in opinion from an office of legal counsel at the department of justice said if vaccine mandates are illegal despite th
10:21 am
fact that these vaccines have only been approved for emergenc use and don't yet have full authorization what could that mean for the future? >> i see problems with that us as i see problems with ask mandates. we don't know if they work for sure in terms of the vaccine th problem is there is no flexibility when you come to th word mandate. what about people that asked fo exemptions if we all ask for exemptions how effective is the mandate? one thing is for sure everybody in the country needs the vaccin it's incredibly effective in th on the way to fight the variant. the mandates may very well backfire.
10:22 am
we are seeing this uptick in compliance my because of the variant. masks vaccines everything seems like it's being pushed onto people. i think people want to feel if they are making a decision themselves in the right decisio here is the vaccine. healthcare workers have to comply to. they all have to take the vaccine and the altar as role models. new cases about 15,000 everyday.
10:23 am
i think that caused an initial backlash. i think they should say that we have this vaccine it's a tremendous tool in the previous administration we are running with a. without the partisan divide whe you say the word unity you should mean that we are meeting you where you live superimposin
10:24 am
where we live. is the infectious disease exper at the john hopkins facility it's great to have you here wha are we about to hear for the nation's children in the fall? we are looking at teachers as well as expected they are going to say and recommend that everybody returning to the classroom in the fall including vaccinated teachers rather masks. why would we see this change based on the science that says
10:25 am
if you are vaccinated you do no need a mask? it is something that's unclear to me but will we know that fully vaccinated individuals ar not a threat to others but a major driver of spreading it's pandemic of the unvaccinated. if you want to get vaccinated especially children that are lo risk you need to tell them not to wear a mask. i wonder if this will decrease update? i think we talk about the students that are not vaccinate it's a bit difficult. they had to modify that to ensure it's as uninterrupted as possible. i think they should also push teachers to get vaccinated.
10:26 am
we are digging up the numbers i the wall street journal put out again this morning the american academy of pediatrics highlighting that kids do get the. do you worry they are balancing the risks with the following back in education of the kids and the difficulty of the classrooms to teach about the masks and the lack of socialization. do you worry they are balancing these things?
10:27 am
>> throughout the pandemic have not balanced that ordered all. it something that was a very lo risk to children over the cycle development. it's not what the virus did but because with the adults and teachers unions did. this is something we've been fighting from the very beginnin is school safety. children are typically spared from severe diseases. we had many examples of schools doing this correctly. it was difficult to get them open but i think that was to al of the children's detriment. hopefully now people have seen that in person schooling is the best way to do this. i think it needs to be a priority that schools stay open during this pandemic because we can do this much better than before.
10:28 am
such an important point coming from infectious disease expert obviously see the importance that the big statement from you. we've got a statement from the white house about a new mask guideline. ninety minutes ago here we were just at the white house. >> i think we are all dealing with an evolving virus where there is no playbook or histori precedent. were going to look at health data to provide guidance as needed to save lives to protect the american people.
10:29 am
we were dealing with a very different strain of the virus that we were yesterday it's mor transmissible spreading more quickly it was nearly nonexistent before. what do you think about that she's attributing the evolving nature of the virus changing ma guidance when i just heard from you is that you are concerned i they move the goalposts your concern is that they could stil be persuaded to get the vaccine. >> we know that the rate increased when they said there' going to be different guidance go back to the pre- pandemic like. we saw vaccinations rise now i think the science can evolve very clear this variant is a ne threat much different than
10:30 am
before and not everything is going to hold the same and it's a fair statement when you look at who was hospitalized and all unvaccinated individuals. we don't see vaccinated people driving outbreaks. there are people that have high viral loads and that may count for a very small amount of transmission but it's not what' going on here if you look at states where the vaccine rate i the lowest that's where the infection rate is the highest that's not a coincidence. if you are fully vaccinated the virus treats you very differently. a real quick final question as we wrap up we know this vaccine is now suitable for children ages 12 and older.
10:31 am
has an infectious disease exper are you going to advise these children get the vaccine if it' ready for them in the fall? >> and like to see the clinical trial data when you get into th younger age group the risk is small. you want to be sure you get the risk-benefit ratio correct. if the data looks good i think would recommend this. it's a different age group and you want to be sure the study was right. i really appreciate your time thank you. >> johnette think we have similar positions to everybody at home.
10:32 am
we've got some ideas of water coming changes for vaccinated americans. people have questions. the change for the kids is goin to be no change. take up the masks or be vaccinated. in school districts across the country we are seeing this is the case. >> it's a big deal and i saw th last words i thought they were very interesting looking at the data kids as young as five year old we could have them ready to vaccinated in september. we could see some big changes coming. that the conversation to have with your doctor. back to the top story she was picked to investigate the right on capitol hill that held their first official hearing today an kevin mccarthy had a couple
10:33 am
rejected and two were appointed. rodney davis joins us now. >> it was tragic and it was a historic event. with everything those officers went through on january 6th i was looking forward to being a part of the select committee bu the speaker decided i wasn't suitable. >> you mentioned harry who pushed the officer we saw in their pitch to be on the committee by the congressman mccarthy. but they were pulled -- is the police officer we saw trying to block the terrorists
10:34 am
at the capitol building. he said in closing the people saying that the select committe was part of a political exercis but he said january 6th was political and that shouldn't be that hard to tell the truth and you pointed out he's a friend o yours i've seen pitchers of the two of you embracing each other in past occasions we do have a sound. >> it's no secret that it was political. they were there to stop the stealing of the election. it was and it is there way around this.
10:35 am
>> i wish people would get to know him like i know him. after i was able to get back to the capital immediately after the break-in and immediately after the riots one of the firs people i saw was a good friend harry. he told me the stories my goal in my chars in this ranking member on house administration jurisdiction over the capitol police and what i want a roll t be is to make sure that the officers to save my life in a baseball field just a few years back should never have been put into this position in the first place. we have to ask why the cure he was not there and it should be political and it's something i've been asking since january 6th is the question he
10:36 am
has asked if we knew this was coming or something was coming based on intelligence that we know the fbi had why weren't th national guard there why weren' political leaders more prepared for the possibility of somethin like this happening? >> when you look at the preparation i don't think there's anything that would've led me to believe that we could having comfortable we saw that they. now we've got the inspector general of the capitol police giving flash reports that said there was not enough training the officers were not put in a position to succeed and to top this off intelligence was given to the capitol police and to th
10:37 am
board that was made up of political appointees that shoul make all the decisions here the capital. they were the ones the capitol police that handed them a note at 1:43 p.m. asking if she believed that she call the national guard. 's are questions that should have been asked today and they should be a part of a future committee. what about the issue of incitement and the president's role in making all this happen? i expect this is going to come up you believe -- of course it's going to come up and of course they are going to look at what his role was in making all of this happen. they were appointed by the speaker. of course those of us that were
10:38 am
going to make up the five appointments we were ready to effectively half the questions as to what failed on january 6th but unfortunately i don't think we are going to get them to ask those questions because the chairman of this committee said the only questions -- it's not going to help and pretty much out of time but i just want to ask you very quickly about what you just said. them members of the republican party yet you refer to them as others. they did what i would not do they accepted appointments. she knew what she was doing and we had a chance at a bipartisan commission i wrote a bill in january every republican voted for this.
10:39 am
there was some disagreement as we move forward a month later because the speaker was asked t change the scope and address some staffing issues. she didn't do that so she put this committee together she kne what she was doing and it's not a coincidence. it's a way she can get them too not ask the questions that need to be asked. the congressman rodney davis from illinois. clearly there is some issues there. >> it's been a busy afternoon and a busy day. we expect all of this to be coming up shortly would have continued reaction but now we have breaking news on the biggest name on the us olympic with the drawing competition wh she dropped out of the team gymnastics event.

i would like to take a moment to address my fellow veterans. one of the benefits that our country gives us as veterans is the powerful va home loan benefit. it lets us refinance 100% of our home's value, not just 80% like other loans. that's a big difference. and it can mean a lot more money for you and your family. and this is the best time in history use it because home values are now at record highs while mortgage rates are near record lows. the newday 100 va cash out loan lets you take out $50,000 or more to use as you wish. improve your home, pay down debt, or just put it in the bank for the financial security every veteran deserves. mm.

10:46 am
russians to win the gold and th team had to settle for silver. later she spoke to reporters an i say put mental health first because you can't succeed as much as you want to sitting up big competitions it shows how strong of a competitor her teammates were a bit shaken. it something that was unexpecte we were emotional when we found out that she wasn't going to compete we all had our minds in

a great position because at the end of the day she said physically she is fine no injur she is the reigning gold medalist and right now she's no sure if she will compete in any more events on thursday. >> time passing for all of us. thank you so much we appreciate it. >> yesterday my kids were three it's amazing how that happened. >> it's been something to watch for it while. she's done so much representing this country and it makes for a grueling sport. >> house watching some video of her practicing and she just appeared to fly. there was nobody else that coul touch her.

britney spears lawyer filing a petition to replace her father as a conservatory of her estate. her lawyers asking that her private accountant manage her estate. now worth $58 million. carly is here to weigh in. her father goes away in a perfect scenario for her and sh controls or money. >> surprising thing her lawyer didn't petition to end the conservative ship altogether which some thought that was going to happen but it's a very
10:53 am
smart strategy on the attorneys part. the immediate goal is getting data out of the pitcher with a long-term goal of ending the conservatorship. in the meantime her lawyer is asking for an accountant named jason rubin to replace dad. as for his credentials he appears to be a perfect guy for the job. is a very impressive accountant with all of these special skill and one of them happens to be handling complex conservatorshi cases. this is new from the filing but he's also guilty of the malfeasance of working in a position of damages and other legal actions against him. what happens to data feeds remove? >> she's made it clear she want her father in jail for abuse an some of these things that she i alleged should be investigated
10:54 am
like the fact that she claims she was forced to take birth control against her will. a lithium against her will some of these things because they been setting court may be investigated our legal experts seem to think that she wants he father in jail because it's a great strategy by the team to possibly make her father standdown associate gets her way. the next hearing is scheduled for september 29th but she says she is not going to perfor again. it's interesting that people ar asking if she could really retire on the million dollars. you think she will truly never perform again?
10:55 am
>> if she doesn't want to i think it could be bad for the fans but also she deserves a break she's been through a lot. a judge recently corrected her request to have her be able to choose her own lawyer and our lawyer is using this as a strategy saying if she is sound enough to choose her own lawyer she should be sound enough to choose her own conservative. i think she will ultimately get her way in the end and maybe if it's rare for her and her situation the able to end it al together as for her future career plans who knows. >> she may be changing her personal life plans to because she clearly wants to have another baby. >> a high-profile democrats attacked in broad daylight how does this square with far left

>> john: what happened to all of that talk of unity from president biden back in january?
11:56 am
months in his presidency, the nations is as divided as ever, maybe more so prompting an op-ed that president biden failed to unit but his policies are widening the political divide. michael goodwin writes the op-ed from the "new york post." good to see you. in his inaugural address on january 20th, president biden promised he would heal a fractured nation. let's rewind the clock and listen for a second. >> i know speaking of unity can sound to some like a foolish fantasy these days. without no unity, there's no peace. we shall right an american story of hope, not fear. of unity, not division. unity is the path forward. unity, unity.
11:57 am
>> john: so six months, seven days in, how has he done on the unity front? >> john, as you know, the inaugural address is a rare moment for the president to have a clean slate and to lay out everything that he wants to say and how he wants to define his presidency. by that measure, joe biden dedicateded himself to bringing the nation together. he was speaking just days after the january 6th riot. still in the middle of the pandemic. so he had an opportunity, i think, to really pitch that -- make that pitch to the public and to be heard. here we are six months later and everything he has done has by definition divisive. the racializing of every government policy, the radical prospects of all of these spending bills. i think what he's done is reneg on that promise to pry to bring
11:58 am
the country together. i wonder whether there was an ounce of sincerity in what he said. >> john: you said a number of examples where the president didn't take the opportunity to bring the country together. you point out there wasn't an attempt to try to bring the various constituencies together on this. >> many of these things were done by executive order. you have all of this talk of ending the senate filibuster, which is the one thing in the congress that would guarantee some kind of consensus. biden and the party wanted to do away with that. his attacks on the voting reform laws as jim crow 2.0 and the most dangerous thing in our country since the civil war. these things are simply not true. they're not based on any fact whatsoever. yet he's got the department of
11:59 am
defense indoctrinating our soldiers in black lives matters theories. he has the department of education hoping to fund critical race theory and the department of agriculture trying to help only black farmers. the secretary state invites the united nations to come to the united states and judge america on its racial landscape. these things are very divisive, very polarizing and you cannot say gee, this will bring the country together. there's no possibility. >> michael, it's an interesting read on thanks. good to see you. >> my pleasure. >> john: sandra, now i'm hungry. >> sandra: wait for this. the world's most expensive french frieses in new york city. they're going for a cool $200. the price is all the ingredients, high quality
