congress would understand the american people one to transparency. the house has been fighting for transparency, the first session behind closed doors but i expect mr. stzrok will explain the text messages where he expressed anti-trump hatred, talking about having insurance policies, having -- trying to stop trump and things like that, explained that to the ig. he wasn't persuasive to the ig and i don't think he will be persuasive to members of the house. jillian: we have read a lot of these text messages over the last two month. how do you think one tries to defend themselves in that situation? >> he will suggest the messages don't mean what they say and didn't impact is decision-making. the ig couldn't be sure that was the case. the problem is for mr. stzrok, communicating with lisa page,
member of fbi leadership, stzrok was a member of the fbi leadership, we have acknowledgment the investigation was wired in terms of hillary clinton, they were never going to prosecute her, not only text messages but an email by judicial watch. then we have got to get trump attitudes, through all these text messages and other communications. one of the problems is we still don't have all the text messages. he is concerned the justice department doesn't have all text messages with congress doesn't have all text messages but he may have to come back once more information is disclosed by the stonewalling justice department and fbi. rob: for so many months this was denied is a big nothing, donald trump's excuse there was bias against him and the ig blows the roof off of everything and we have this hesitation from christopher rand rod rosenstein. why do you think there's that
hesitation to cooperate with this? >> they are protecting the institutions of the doj and fbi come more interested in their credibility than anything else and protecting the mueller investigation is more important than anything else as well. when you look at these text messages, the dossier was corruptly formed and by allowing information it further undermines the mueller anti-trump investigation. jillian: let's talk about maxine waters facing criticism over her comments the last couple days. let's listen to what she had to say yesterday. >> i have not called for the harm of anybody. this president lied again. the children, i don't want to engage constantly with this

they use drones for soft spots but the payload of drones can carry so much opioids in different narcotics like that and slide narcotics over with these drones. i'm a little disappointed in my agency, we knew these would be a problem. this is typical of what we see and carrying over into the trump administration and if you look at current immigration crisis we would not be here if the agency had done its job in april 2016, we had all the momentum in the world to keep illegal border crossings low and they failed to react. rob: after the trump effect, $50,000 a month, that is just

security reasons, the 4 corners of what donald trump in the executive order. and what he said he would do. the defense says it was racist and anti-muslim. if we look at what public officialidefore they become public official there will be no end to second guessing them so we just look at what they wrote and what he wrote is consistent with the powers given to him. >> here is that dissent, to conclude the proclamation was motivated by anti-muslim animus talking about comments on the campaign trail. judge napolitano: she is a dear friend of mine and i can only describe this dissent as ferocious, very stinging dissent causing a lot of bad feelings and shouting matches when the supreme court was addressing
this. you may recall from history a time when japanese americans, americans of japanese ancestry were rounded up and put into camps against eir will and the supreme court upheld it. justice sonia sotomayor compared this decision to that. it is a stretch but does remind us of religious and ethnic bias that has happened in our history. nevertheless it is upheld and it is upheld, it is constitutional but people can challenge it. somebody can show up at the port of brooklyn or oakland, california. it is constitutional but doesn't apply to me. i'm a professor, i have a lecture to give, they can't keep me out because i'm not dangerous and the court will hear it. the issue of constitutionality has been resolved, hundreds of litigations involving individual
people. >> a landmark ruling, what could this mean? what do you expect to happen and what should happen? judge napolitano: it involves public-sector unions. the state of illinois like in new jersey, you want to work for the government, local, county, resource date, joinor union. this is forced unionization. can the state do that? if the answer is yes the unions will flourish because you will have no choice but to join. of the answer is no as i think it will be it will break the backs of public-sector unions because instead of having to attract or use force and want to get members in you have to attract them, do something. and i don't know if it is related to that so it will change the relationship of labor unions to the government as it comes down as e travel ban at the same time before. rob: doesn't sound very free country to be forced into a
union. judge napolitano: you could not have said that better. first amendment guarantees the right to associate and the right not to associate. as the government can't keep you from associating with somebody, it can't force you to associate with somebody. that is the argument. that you will have a 10:00 this morning. jillian: you are calling at at 10 to 4. we are coming right back. . . from the first moment you met,
