tv   The Story With Martha Mac Callum  FOX News  October 12, 2021 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT

12:00 pm
>> john, our coverage of this will continue. laura has been on the since the beginning perigee sat down with the parents of gabby petito per chi said it was heartbreaking when she spoke to them. martha will take it from here. thank you for joining us i'm sandra smith. >> the whole thing is heartbreaking. john roberts, the story starts right now. >> thank you. continuing coverage of the breaking news. i'm trace gallagher in for martha maccallum. the teton county coroners delivering his full report on the manner and cause of gabby petito's death ruling it was strangulation and her body was in the wilderness for three to four weeks before it was discovered. all as the man hunt for brian laundrie appears to be at a standstill. his lawyer releasing this statement moments ago quoting now, gabby petito's death at a
12:01 pm
young age is tragedy wine brian laundrie is charged with the unauthorized use of the debit card belonging to death, brian is considered a person of interest. he's still missing. when he's located, we will address the pending fraud charge against him. dr. michael baden is standing by with fascinating insight. let's recap what we just learned moments ago with laura ingle. she's live in new york. laura? >> trace, of course, you know this is a big day in this case, learning the cause and manner of death. homicide, strangulation. as we know from all of the cases we've covered and talked about, strangulation is a very personal and intimate matter of murder. of course, we don't know and the coroner could not tell us if it was brian laundrie who so many do have questions about. that is not his job, he said. that is for the fbi.
12:02 pm
the fbi not offering any comments on that today. we have reached out to the gabby petito family and the schmidt family. they're not prepared to make any type of statement on the findings of the coroner. some of the key items that we learned in that press conference, which was a little awkward at times. it was a zoom call coming from the coroner's office. people calling in and asking questions. that is the way it went today. the coroner could not answer questions about how she was found in terms of was her body buried. i was it out in the open. we wanted to ask questions about what was found around her. you know, clothing, camping gear, anything that could be located with her body. that could not be answered as well. we did learn that her body had been outside in the woods for three to four weeks. that matches up with the time frame. the last time gabby petito was seen alive in public at least was august 27 in jackson,
12:03 pm
wyoming. she was at a tex mex restaurant. the merry piglet. i went there with our team. as you're standing with the restaurant, you look down the road, 30 miles to the campground where her body was discovered. her van was spotted near this disbursed campground area. was she killed in the van and taken over to where she was found or killed where she was found. questions, there's so many in this case. but at least the big one now has been publicly answered. of course, we'll soon learn when the family will be returning to wyoming to get gabby petito and bring her home. trace? >> if you get breaking news, we'll brick you back. let's bring in dr. michael baden who has testified as the o.j.
12:04 pm
simpson trial and a fox news contributor. it's good of you to join us today. you said a couple weeks ago this was likely strangulation. one, how did you know and two, why is it that the coroner in teton county won't give us more information on how the strangulation happened, whether it was manual or a device was used? >> well, the coroner new on day one when the autopsy was down that it was strangulation and that it was a homicide. they delayed a couple of weeks before saying it was a homicide. there's no reason not to have said that it was strangulation. the reason i say that, shooting, stabbings, blunt injuries to the head, they can be accidents, homicide. you have to come to a conclusion that it's only a homicide. with strangulation, you can't strangle yourself. you can strangle but not to
12:05 pm
death. so that had to be known right away. the reason you know it is because of the injuries to the skin and underneath the skin and to the hyoid bone and wind pipe. they knew that at the autopsy. it's not clear they said. they kept it a secret. the perpetrator knew what they had done. they were not hiding any information. what attracted me so much, how much information has been gathered by crowd sourcing rather than the usual forensic science techniques. they saw the van, the argument, found the body. all came from crowd sourcing. the more information given out, now the strangulation being documented, maybe somebody will contribute additional information as to how this
12:06 pm
happened since the coroner himself is going to say. >> if this was a manual strangulation, dr. baden, would we have evidence that it was brian laundrie? why is he just being charged with debit card fraud? if they had more information, they would say this guy is wanted for murder? >> that's more of a legal decision. once you say that somebody is charged with murder, there's legal things that may have to be done depending on states. here you have two, the state and the federal government. normally 99% of murders are state murders. this happens to be a federal murder because it happened in a national part. i think the fbi are being super careful, which just delays releasing a lot of information that was known immediately. why -- it's not clear why they
12:07 pm
still keep the body there. we have thousands of murders every year. nobody keeps bodies for a month or two and prevents the family from doing whatever they want to do. the one thing, trace, that i would mention is it's the type of murder that causes loss of consciousness within seconds, 5 or 10 seconds. this is a quick loss of consciousness. the family should know that gabby suffered little pain or suffering. she lost consciousness and then was dead by going to sleep. so for whatever that's worth. >> we'll get to legal aspects in moments. but first, the medical side. we feel awful for the petito family. i'm just wondering if this was manual strangulation, would brian laundrie have left behind significant evidence? >> no.
12:08 pm
they were together for weeks and months. his dna is going to be all over her body. as was mentioned earlier, if you find dna from a third person, that would be important. but if you find dna evidence, whether it's on the skin, whether it's on the neck, whether it's under her fingernails or a rape kit, so what. you would expect it there when people have been together a long period of time. so that doesn't help. the reason you focus on brian is because he was the one that was seen with her all the time. that can be an argument that at trial. couldn't a third person have done it. a jury will have to make a decision that which so far would not be a problem. >> lastly, dr. baden, the coroner was asked if the body was found buried or not found buried. he wouldn't answer that
12:09 pm
question. why not? >> he came out of the box saying, look, according to wyoming law, they can only release the manner of death and the cause of death. why they decided not to delay so long and releasing the cause of death is not clear at all. they didn't need any additional information. the toxicology, whatever it is, doesn't affect the cause of death. it affects the circumstances of how it happened. so i think that they don't get very many homicides out there and being super cautious. which hopefully a crowd source will be helpful again. >> yeah, dr. michael baden, stand by. let's bring in mercedes cohen, a fox news legal analyst.
12:10 pm
mercedes, we've done these stories before. my question, do they have enough evidence to pin this on brian laundrie? you think if they did, they would give us more information about the exact cause of death, was it manual, was it done with a device. >> great insights by dr. baden. great questions by you, trace. the question is what the activity was after her death. there's so much suspicious activity done by brian laundrie. taking her credit card. if you're leaving someone in the middle of the woods, you're going to use their credit card? not saying anything, not saying when they would return to his family, calling the authorities saying my girlfriend is missing. i don't know where she went. all of this suspicious behavior after he left her side. that's going to be the circumstantial evidence that any district attorney is going to look at and say the cause of death, we now on the 27th that gabby petito was alive. we saw brian laundrie appears
12:11 pm
back in florida september 1. sometime between the 27th and the 1st, she's been murdered. that time period. the closer you get brian laundrie to the point where she was murdered and the absence of any dna from anyone else. certainly the d.a. will say it's obvious to us and we're going to seek the fact and present it to a grand jury. the reason they're taking this length of time is they're slowing it down. they're very careful. they want to make sure that they have a rock solid case against brian laundrie before bringing the charges. >> i want to narrow that timeline down. brian laundrie showed up september 1 in florida. if you do the millage, if you're driving 20 hours a day, it takes a couple days there. problem to august 28, 29, that kind of is the timeline there. if you're brian laundrie's attorney, mercedes and then a
12:12 pm
final question for dr. baden, if you're brian laundrie's attorney, do you want the precise cause of death released or do you not? >> probably don't want the precise cause of death. at this point -- look, wouldn't it be great to know what the theory mind be behind her death? that would be great for defense attorneys. but also, they're already amassing their defense. they're going to say i'm sure that brian left her in the woods, had a big fight. she didn't want to get back in the van. had to leave. didn't have money. used her credit card. they had this big fight. he's going to create this obviously smoke screen as any defense attorney would do to try to save a client. >> dr. michael baden, lastly to you what is the thing if you were doing this autopsy what is the key thing you look for? >> the autopsy, the key thing is injuries to the skin or the neck and the fracture of the hyoid
12:13 pm
bone, the damage underneath. that will help determine if it was ligature strangulation or manual strangulation. that all may or may not be helpful in furthering the case. strangulation is the cause of death. important to know whether or not there were any defense wounds on the body, did she struggle, was there a fight for a while which would make it more horrendous for a injury. i like the way mercedes summed things up. i want her to be my lawyer if i'm in trouble. >> you'll never need me, dr. baden. i'm here for you. >> this is horrendous for the jury and the petito family. thank you both. dr. baden, mercedes cohen, we'll get back to you if there's breaking news. we're monitoring a pentagon briefing right now. no word on a navy engineer and
12:14 pm
his wife that attempted to sell nuclear secrets. have you heard about this story? general jack keane will weigh-in on this next. veteran homeowners, mortgage rates are still near all time lows. and home values are at all time highs. that makes right now the best time in history to use your va refi benefit and get cash. you could take out $50,000 or more because the newday 100 va loan lets you borrow up to 100% of your home's value. use that cash to pay high rate credit card debt or plan for retirement. the newday 100 va loan. >> tech: when you get a chip in your windshield... trust safelite. this couple was headed to the farmers market... when they got a chip. they drove to safelite for a same-day repair. and with their insurance, it was no cost to them. >> woman: really? >> tech: that's service the way you need it. >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪ [sizzling]

12:17 pm
12:18 pm
>> trace: happening right now, we're monitoring a pentagon briefing as with follow the story of a navy nuclear engineer and his wife for selling information to foreign governments. lucas tomlinson has more. >> both defendants were shackled wearing orange jump suits.
12:19 pm
>> they moved here in 2014. i've been up and down the block so many times. they never say hi. don't even catch your eye. >> they each sat alone without legal representation. the judge ordered each to receive public defenders. neither asked to enter a plea deal. jonathan toebbe was in front of the judge about five minutes. his wife, diane, is a teacher, a fierce feminist with a progressive outlook. the couple allegedly sold classified top secret nuclear material about nuclear reactors above the newest submarines in exchange for cryptocurrency to who they thought was a foreign power but what was an fbi agent. they were arrested last week in west virginia attempting to leave a memory card wrapped in a
12:20 pm
peanut butter sandwich. they used band aid rappers in previous drugs. they had anti-trump ramps and black lives matter materials. that's all we have right now from the pentagon. trace? >> trace: thanks, lucas. let's bring in general jack keane, chairman for the institute of the study of water. we'll get to the peanut butter sandwich and the chip a little later on. my question to you is, the indictment says country one. any insight, any speculation about who country 1 might be and what they were looking for? >> yeah, that's pretty much an interesting part of this case. certainly here we have middle class family, school teacher at a private school, city of annapolis and a nuclear engineer and someone that served in the navy opting to trade our secrets
12:21 pm
for money. motivation appears to be money. sometimes it's ideology. sometimes it's also blackmail or possibly a combination of all three. but what is unusual, they're soliciting the foreign government themselves. that certainly has happened in the past. normally a foreign agent recruits one of our people based on the categories and motivation i listed. but their soliciting this government themselves in april of 2020, the fbi doesn't get involved by this foreign government until around december of 2020 when they begin to have interaction with the couple. obviously posing now as agents of that foreign government. certainly not the fbi, which leaves one to suspect may not be an adversary country. if it was an adversary country, why would they tell the fbi about it? they don't have a lot of motivation to do that, i don't
12:22 pm
believe. >> trace: general, the flip side, if it's an ally country, we're talking about -- these are the latest nuclear secrets in the virginia class submarine. it can stay under water for great amounts of time. it's silent. these are intricate secrets. why would we want to give this to our ally countries? >> well, we would not. that's just the fact. nuclear propulsion and those things associated with the nuclear reactor that drives our submarines is one of our most highly kept secrets. that's just a fact. it could be a country that is not an adversary that sat on it for some reason, bureaucratic reasons, i'm not sure and finally gave it to the fbi. it could still be an adversary country but begs the question, what is their motivation and interest here, unless they suspected this wasn't going
12:23 pm
anywhere. these middle class people involved in the spying activity don't have a sense that if they were able to succeed in doing this covertly over a period of time, it would be considerably much more lucrative if this really was an and very -- adversary country and they had secrets to tried here, it could be lucrative over years. we don't take this lightly, trace. these people will face very stiff sentences if found guilty here. they're likely to spend the rest of their life in jail. rightfully so. >> trace: you talk about lucrative. they wanted $100,000 in cryptocurrency. not exactly get rich for the rest of your life money. secondly my question would be, you talk about the pentagon briefing and jelly sandwich that the information was hidden inside. it doesn't exactly sounds like a tom clansy novel. amateurish. the question then would be why?
12:24 pm
why would you do this? the wife was a progressive trump hater. but you're not hurting trump. you're hurting america. what is the motivation if it's not money, what is it? >> they probably have a pretty good feel by now. obviously money is out there as a factor in this. whether ideology contributed to it, whether their strong political beliefs resonates in their decision-making -- i'm confident under our current intelligence, fbi questioning, they will get to the bottom of what is their complete motivation for doing this and if they have ever done anything like this in the past as well. >> general jack keane, great stuff as always. thanks for coming on. >> yeah. great talking to you, trace. >> trace: still ahead, congressman jim jordan. china stalls another attempt to uncover what happened in wuhan.
12:25 pm
moments ago, the white house responsing to several looming crises including supply chain bottle necks, record high gas prices and inflation predicted to rise through next year. steve moore and marc thiessen when the story continues. >> on inflation and the supply chain disruption, federal reserve informations say inflation may not be transitory and its becoming increasingly clear that there's animated pressures that will not be brief. t of your zone? lowering your a1c with once-weekly ozempic® can help you get back in it. oh, oh, oh, ozempic®! my zone... lowering my a1c, cv risk, and losing some weight... now, back to the game! ozempic® is proven to lower a1c. most people who took ozempic® reached an a1c under 7 and maintained it.

12:27 pm
12:28 pm
12:29 pm
>> i want to get to the supply chain issues. is there any consideration of potentially lifting trump era tariffs to give some sort of mediate relief to this problem? the task force has talked about long-term solutions. that's something that the trade representatives and business leaders that suggested could have a real impact right now. >> the task force has been talking about a range of steps that need to be taken. >> trace: the white house side step ago question about its plan to curtail a global supply chain crisis. president biden also has an energy crisis on his hands. his green energy push is contributing to seven-year high gas prices. americans pay $3.27 per gallon. jeff flock life at a gas station
12:30 pm
in philadelphia. hello, jeff. >> trace, to paraphrase the old brooks and dunn song, costs are going up at the pump particularly. $3.49 at the sunoco in philadelphia. 3.27, 3.28 right now if you round up in terms of the price of regular on the average in the u.s. up eight cents in just the last weeks. up 11 cents since this time last month. $1.10, $2.18 this time last year. the folks we talk to, whether it's in the well-healed neighborhoods or the inner city, other starting to get pretty upset about it. listen. >> $120? $120. >> that's a lot of money. >> i'm not talking about ebt or food stamps. $120 to fill up this truck. >> nowhere near it was. >> nowhere near.
12:31 pm
2.25? it's ridiculous now. >> ridiculous now. where it's least ridiculous, we can show you those. seven states still under $3 a gallon led by oklahoma. $2.89 the average in oklahoma. where is it most expensive in the ten most expensive states are led by california. $4.43 the average gallon of regular. trace, we looked it up. in case you want the cheapest gas you can find anywhere in america, we went to our friends at in oklahoma. $2.49. the cheapest you can get it in the u.s. trace? >> trace: right outside the door in santa monica, california, it's $5.29 a gallon, jeff flock. >> oh! >> trace: stay tuned for more. >> get yourself a golf cart.
12:32 pm
>> trace: thank you. yes. joining me now, steve moore, the former senior economic adviser to president trump and marc thiessen, former speechwriter for george bush, aei scholar and fox news contributor. that's what i said, marc. jeff flock talk about $3.27. it's 5.29 out my door. look at the scenario. if there were gas lines, you'd think we're in 1979. >> no, that's right, this is the second coming of the carter administration. we have run-away inflation, hostages in the middle east and the president begging opec to produce more oil because we have shortages at home of the it's like the 1970s. gases have risen $1 a gallon. crude oil prices have doubled. natural gas prices are up. these are because of policy decisions by the biden administration. when you declare you're going to
12:33 pm
tax and regulate an industry out of existence, what will happen? oil producer won't dig more wells or won't increase production. wall street banks and firms won't invest in fossil fuels. the result is less production and higher prices and the poorest americans are hit the worst. >> trace: out of the "wall street journal" echoing what marc said. banning experts might lower domestic oil prices someone but wouldn't reduce how much americans pay at the pump. the way to reduce gas prices is by increasing supply. not sending signals that the administration's goal is to put them out of business. look at the progressive movement. that is the goal. put oil out. >> it is. i guarantee you one thing, trace, you're not going to solve this energy crisis by building wind middle -- mills. we still get 70% of energy from fossil fuels, oil, gas and coal.
12:34 pm
i don't want to spoil your day but i'm predicting it's going to $5 a gallon in the next four to eight weeks. look what is happening in europe right now. there's a massive energy crisis. some area of europe, they're paying 7, 8, 9, $10 a gallon because of the supply shortage of gas. by the way, do you know what the number 1 fastest growing form of energy is in europe right now? >> trace: what? >> it's coal. coal. they're having to turn to coal because the natural gas -- they're not producing enough. one other quick point that is not just an economic catastrophe for a foreign policy catastrophe. the pipeline, not keystone, the pipeline from siberia, russia is now fully functioning, a lead article in the times that said europe is now held hostage to russia for their energy. when we should be providing it. makes you so angry.
12:35 pm
>> trace: yeah. he talked about wind middles and solar energy. the truth is, we have a lot of that in california but only works during the day. what happens at night? you have to go back to fossil fuels and it's expensive. in the theme of the administration not taking blame for anything jennifer granholm said this. watch, marc. >> we don't own our own gas supply or oil supply. so the market is what the market is. presidents don't control the cost of gasoline. >> in california, politicians control a lot of the price of gasoline, marc. your final thoughts. >> 100%. there were -- there are now 528 rigs pumping oil in the united states. that is half of what it was under president trump. he's killing fossil fuels at home and bigging opec to produce more. it's the same thing. why not make it at home?
12:36 pm
he cancelled keystone but green lights the nord stream 2. for coal, you're -- guess what? your electric car is a coal powered car. congratulations. >> in the last month of the trump administration in january 2021, for the first time in any of our lifetimes, we were not importing any oil from saudi arabia. guess what we're doing now? we're not producing it here so we're importing it from opec. doesn't make any sense. >> i was 2 for 2 in your trivia just to clear that up. marc thiessen, steve moore. great to see you both. thanks, gentlemen. >> thanks, trace. >> trace: nancy pelosi faulting reporters for failing to sell president biden's massive social spending bill. >> i think you all could do a better job of selling it to be frank with you. every time i come here, i go through the list. family medical leave, the issues in there. but it's true. it's hard to break through when
12:37 pm
you have such a comprehensive package. >> trace: on deck to respond, congressman jim jordan next on "the story."
12:38 pm
12:39 pm
people with moderate to severe psoriasis, are rethinking the choices they make like the splash they create the entrance they make, the surprises they initiate. otezla. it's a choice you can make. otezla is not a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight
12:40 pm
and may stop treatment. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur. tell your doctor about your medicines, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. otezla. show more of you.
12:41 pm
>> trace: they've been accused of a covid-19 cover-up and now china is stalling trying to solve one of the world's biggest mysteries about what happened in wuhan that unleashed a global pandemic. in a moment, republican congressman jim jordan. first, rich edson has the story from the state department. rich? >> good afternoon, trace. the world health organization wants to investigate a region in china home to some 37 miles of bat caves. they're nearby animals that scientists could have been an intermediate host with bats and humans starting the coronavirus. there's a problem here, the
12:42 pm
chinese government is refusing to allow access. there's reports that the government, while denying the who access is allowing tourists to visit the area. there's growing calls for a credible investigation into the origins of covid-19. former u.s. national attorney and who official jamie metzel that some want to give china a pass and not investigating covid-19 now. this is a terrible mistake. there's no transparency and accountability in the future if we don't demand it now. in a detailed 1,500 world piece, the "washington post" editorial board explains the barriers that investigators face, including questions from peter daszek, and also from the chinese government. "the initial efforts like the
12:43 pm
joint china who mission and the u.s. intelligence community report raised more questions than they answered. no investigation will succeed as long as china's doors remain shut. the silence is deafening." republicans that are pushing the white house and congressional democrats to pick up an investigation from this end. the state department has pointed to the who investigation and says the chinese government should allow the who and its scientists into their country in short order. trace? >> rich edson live from the state department. thank you. let's bring in jim jordan. he's the top republican on the house judiciary committee and author of the upcoming back, "do what you said you would do." as you heard rich edson say, china is not going to cooperate. what is the remedy? >> this is nothing new. china has misled us from the get-go. i came from an interview with
12:44 pm
dr. burkes. she said china misled us the whole time. who else misled us, dr. fauci. it's amazing -- most people in the country want to know how did the virus start except for china, dr. fauci and the democrats. why is that? look, i hope we get to the bottom of it. the fact that we were sending american tax dollars to this lab, the fact that it's looks like they were doing gain of function research and the most plausible explanation that it leaked from the lab but we don't want to find out and china is blocking us makes no sense. something this serious and taken as many lives as its taken, we need to find out how it started. >> if china is not going to cooperate, do we need them to? we had a guest friday that said maybe we don't. listen to him and i'll get your response on the back side. >> my work has shown that we don't need to get inside the
12:45 pm
institution to answer these questions. i think that's an important thing that people realize. i think there's a lot of kicking the can down the road. after two years, we've done a lot of studies. all of the effort points directly towards the laboratory. >> so maybe we don't need to get in the lab but it seems like this would be very hard case to prosecute if you don't get some cooperation from china. >> i'm not a scientist but they say you need to get to the lab. dr. fauci could tell us. remember, i point to this. january 31, 2020 at 1032 p.m., dr. fauci gets an e-mail from dr. anderson that says, virus looks engineered, virus not consistent with evolutionary theory. that is in january 2020. fauci was in the know at the start. what did he do? he misled us over a year. i'd like to get dr. fauci on the witness stand to answer our questions.
12:46 pm
he won't come back on the select committee. he hasn't been back for a hearing. i hope he does sometime so we can ask him the questions. i think he can give us the answers. he probably won't. >> trace: we know we've been lied to. we know big tech shut it down because they called it a conspiracy theory. we know the u.s. was giving dollars for gain of function research, which is to make a virus more potent so that they can come up with a remedy. there's been no consequences. what makes you think that bringing dr. fauci back before congress would lead to consequences? >> that's haul we can do. the democrats are in charge. they don't want to find out. we know that. this is amazing to me, it's dr. fauci, the democrats and china all on the same page on this, not wanting to find out the origins of this virus. why not? the folks i represent in ohio would like to know how this started. it's certainly disrupted our lives and diminished our freedoms that we so enjoy in this country. i think americans like to know.
12:47 pm
unfortunately the democrats -- all we can do is what we're doing now, highlight it and get the information to the american people. >> trace: i want your take on how the process is going, raising the debt limit. you hear nancy pelosi say different things. you talk about these, reconciliation, the trillions that they want to spend. where are we? >> usually the one thing democrats are good at is spending other people's money. but they're so screwed up, they're blaming the press. that's how bad the situation is. they're going to kick the can down the road again for eight weeks and be back at it again. this is just emblematic of what the democrats are like. they can't do anything right. >> trace: just to clarify your quote there, nancy pelosi said moments ago, the mainstream media "could do a better job of selling it." >> when the speaker of the house is criticizing the mainstream media, that shows you how
12:48 pm

12:59 pm
fluzone high-dose quadrivalent isn't for people who've had a severe allergic reaction to any flu vaccine or vaccine component, including eggs or egg products. tell your health care professional if you've ever experienced severe muscle weakness after receiving a flu shot. people with weakened immune systems, including those receiving therapies that suppress the immune system, may experience lower immune responses. vaccination may not protect everyone. side effects include pain, redness, and/or swelling where you got the shot, muscle ache, headache, and general discomfort. other side effects may occur. all flu shots are not the same. i raised my game with fluzone high-dose quadrivalent. ask your doctor or pharmacist for fluzone high-dose quadrivalent. >> trace: breaking right now, police are at the laundrie home we're told to clear out any authorized or unauthorized media. keep in mind, it was an hour ago
