4:04 pm
decades. and republicans are slamming the president's move as a giant power grab. >> why is the president doing this and why tonight? >> because he just got slaughtered in an election. it's crystal clear. it's all about politics. >> and, of course, many of the year's top newsmakers were political leaders. among them, former president george w. bush. future senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and former secretary of state hillary clinton. and all of them going "on the record." >> would you have made that swap for sergeant berg doll five taliban for sergeant berg doll. >> well, as i write in the book and at the time i was trying to put together a bigger deal. a deal that would create a negotiation between the government of afghanistan and the taliban to try to move the taliban to renounce violence and renounce al qaeda and agree to support the constitution laws. >> you have been quoted as saying these five guys not a threat to the u.s.a. when people heard that they were quite surprised. as long as they are in qatar they are not a threat to the
4:05 pm
united states. >> bin laden was never in the united states. >> no, no. but in qatar, with an agreement that has been entered into, they are supposed to be constrained from what they can do and certainly they are not supposed to be permitted to travel. that is as, my understanding tells me, what the deal and in that situation, they are not a threat. now, i agree with you that when the new president, whoever that turns out to be, is sworn n afghanistan, there is no doubt, given the current atmosphere that the taliban is going to try to attack and take back territory. i worry particularly about the gains that have been made, the sacrifice that americans made to enable those gains, particularly for women and girls. so this is a situation that is dangerous, that we have to keep watching. those five men, they are right now not a danger. if he they're kept where they are supposed to be be kept. but we still have to worry about the taliban and everything that they could be doing. >> a lot of attention united
4:06 pm
states on isis and what's going on in iraq and syria. as you noted, that's the battle. the real war that matters much to your country as well as to the world is iran and nuclear weapons. where are they on their nuclear weapons? >> they are trying to get a deal which would leave them with the ability to get, to make enough enriched uranium for a bomb and have all the sanctions, the tough sanctions lifted off them. that's what they are trying to do. they shouldn't get it i think it's important to specify. the problem is that militant islam is trying to dominate the middle east number one target is ultimately the united states. they view all these branches. shiites, radical shiites, radical sunnies, they see you as the great satan. they saw us the small satan because we are a frontal position, a forward position of the united states. they want to destroy us so they can get to you. the greatest danger is that any one of these groups,
4:07 pm
either isis, on the radical sunni side or iran that leaves the radical shiites that any one of them would get nuclear weapons is a tremendous threat to the future of our world. a tremendous threat not only to israel but you to the united states as well. >> the senate sort of frequently didn't vote anymore for the last four years and the reason for that was the president figured he got all the legislation he wanted the first two years and after that he wanted to be left alone. harry reid and the democratic majority basically guaranteed he never got anything, that even made him think twice. and so we became dysfunctional. a place where nothing happened. >> so why weren't there votes? was that senate majority leader harry reid's decision or the president's or they were working in concert and talking back and forth? i think the president didn't want anything to come to his desk that he didn't like. it served his purpose for the senate not to vote. and reid convinced his members that these would be bad votes that would hurt
4:08 pm
him in the election. it was to their advantage not to vote. proved to be a very bad miscalculation. >> what do you make of the president using his executive power you? are a legislature. >> i think it's fine. we had been urging him to set the example for raising the minimum wage anywhere within his power to do so. of course, we would prefer to pass legislation to raise the minimum wage for everyone. over 60 officers of those getting the minimum wage are women. so we think it's really an important initiative. lift millions of people out of poverty. maybe 6 million as well as inject demand into the economy with the purchasing power it creates. >> what about the problem the precedence it sets. presidentspresident used execute order. people tend to like when it's your party. is he a democrat, you are a democrat. what about the idea of using executive order and bypassing i don't think. >> well, i think again president has urged congress to pass the minimum wage and they have done. so i think
4:09 pm
the question would be more to the president if you want congress to do so, use its power why don't you use your power by executive order to raise the minimum wage. >> your party has been branded as being anti-poor. >> i think that's people who basically want to stick with the status quo or want to have a partisan game to say things like that. >> tough partisan in this country. >> sure, it is. i mean, if we accept the status quo as unreformable. if you want to serve people in congress and you think that you can't solve a problem that's a problem in our communities, you shouldn't be in congress. so the way i look at this is i look at the condition of the poor and i see opportunity. i see potential. i see people who could be fantastic contributors who need assistance from getting to where they are to where they want to be. we in the federal government are not doing our job to making sure that that occurs. and what i think the federal government in many places
4:10 pm
does is it displaces many solutions. it crowds out what we call civil society. local groups making a difference. we want to empower that we want the public and the private sector working together to help pull people out of poverty. and i would argue that washington frustrates that it should facilitate that. >> this is where every journalist asks you the question whether or not you are going to run for president. so i will ask the question i always ask, packers, how are they going to do this year. >> i think we will do well. i think we are going to have a very good team. we i would the holes we h as long as he would healthy, we are going all the way. >> the phone, one phone line in the family. >> 4480. >> you remember that? >>. no. >> of course, let me give you the tour of your own childhood bedroom. >> how about this room? >> this is fantastic. >> yeah. it's awesome. it's beautiful, isn't it in the wood is beautiful. that's exactly the way it was. >> were you a cub scout? >> i was a cub. >> were you any good. >> no. but i was a cub. >> guess hot den mother was?
4:11 pm
>> i hate to guess. your mother. >> i peeked as a cub scout, i was a proud cub sought soyuz to quip that mother has gray hair because she was the den mother. >> it has not been a good year for the obama administration. 2014 riddled with scandals from the obamacare architect are americans stupid to the irs targeting scandal. >> the irs has broken laws and the american people need to-to-redress this grievance. >> every week, every month that this goes on, we uncover more and more information and the furnace gets hotter. >> there are a range of investigations going on across capitol hill and throughout our federal government looking into the irs scandal. >> the irs conduct was intentional and deliberate and done many times. >> this is taking scandal at a whole new level of the country to have a president and administration using the irs to target citizens. >>
4:12 pm
>> we now have lois lerner as a criminal con spirit in this. >> koskinen told the committee we would have all of the emails without any hesitation, without any delay. we found out earlier this month that in fact two years worth of emails that we were requesting were, in fact, lost. >> i did not say i would provide you emails that disappeared. if you have a no jik call way for me to do that i would like to know about it. >> i don't know exactly what all lois lerner did. i know on day one when she chose to plead the fifth and refuse to cooperate and testify, that immediately raised my ears and my eyebrows. >> we, of course, held her in contempt for improperly not telling us the truth after she said things like i didn't break any rules. i didn't break any laws. she broke rules. she broke laws. >> the president says in a phony scandal. >> phone scandals that are generated. >> he said there is not a smidgen of corruption. >> not even mass corruption'. not even a smidgen of corruption.
4:13 pm
>> you say that lois lerner is at least -- involved in a criminal conspiracy. so, now what? where does that leave you? >> well, it leaves us at odds with the president who initially said this was awful. he was going to get to the bowl of it. and then turned it into yet another one of those it's not scandal and it's just republicans. well, it's not just republicans. >> there is no question this is a scandal. it's a scandal of epic proportions. big enough that it could bring down a presidency. >> the veterans affairs scandal growing by the minute. >> the v.a. has always been problematic. >> disturbing allegations of treatment, delays and preventable deaths now under investigation in more than two dozen v.a. facilities nationwide. that includes the phoenix hospital where 40 veterans died. allegedly while waiting for treatment. >> this is shameful under any circumstances. it is 10 times more shameful because it's being done to the men and women who have put their lives on the line. >> and it worked. >> americans are just fed up literally up to here with what's going on in this city. the reality of it is, the
4:14 pm
veterans who are are paying the price for it are in hospitals or can't even get seen in hospitals. >> it's gotten all of a sudden so much worse. it's gone so far below the baseline that it it is outraging people. if you know a veteran, you go help him because that person who is going into a v.a. hospital may not come out alive. >> big development in benghazi. today speaker of the house john boehner announcing the house will form a select committee to investigate the benghazi attack. >> not only are we trying to get questions with respect to benghazi. we are also now investigating what appears to be a white house coverup. >> secretary of state john kerry has been subpoenaed by house oversight. >> a year ago he said with respect to benghazi if you are having any trouble getting information, let me know. well, mr. secretary, we are going to let you know. we are not getting the information. >> to former white house spokesman tommy veiter down played the talking points controversy is is a giant understatement. >> did you also change
4:15 pm
attacks to ghoxes in the talking points? >> maybe. i don't really remember. >> you don't remember? >> dude, this is like two years ago. we are still talking about. >> dude, it is the thing that is everybody is talking about. >> the way he corresponded last night with the dude, it was so flippant and juvenile it almost seems that he didn't understand the seriousness of the question. >> how does anyone keep their job when we abandon four americans to die in benghazi. that's the big-million-dollar question. >> former state department diplomat accusing staff members former secretary of state hillary clinton of secretly removing politically damaging documents before turning over files to the accountability review board. >> did the administration mislead or lie about a terrorist attack in order to further political or an ideological narrative that suited their needs? >> the investigations that have been carried out basically conclude we can't say that everybody was influenced and we can't say everybody wasn't. but what the intelligence community said was spontaneous protests. and that is what at the time they thought. >> a stunning admission from one the architects of obamacare. >> americans are too stupid
4:16 pm
to understand. [ laughter ] >> claims the lack of transparency and in his words the student of the american voter. >> help the obama administration get the health care law passed. this is the kind of thing we need to change in washington. >> call it the stupidity of the american voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical to getting this thing to pass. >> i assume we would like to hear president obama to say something. maybe to say to the american people we really don't think you are stupid or something. >> don't hold your breath. >> it's emboldened the republicans right now. >> it's clearly offensive and just confirms americans' worst fierce about the government. so we see this slap in the face and an insult to the american people. >> his credibility is completely shot. >> it undermines efforts to defend the law. also severely undercuts any efforts they have to strengthen and improve it this is just going to fuel the other side in terms of trying to fight for appeal. >> this is why the american people are is so cynical about washington elite very
4:17 pm

threats very seriously. another new year's celebration. this one in china has taken a tragic twist. reports from shanghai say at least 35 people have been killed. another 42 injured in a stampede at the city's river front area which was jammed at the time with people. i'm jackie ibanez. now back to "on the record" special. to many americans, the war on terror seems like it is being fought far away. but for the families of those killed, it hits home. in august, u.s. air strikes bombarded ice cities strongholds in iraq. and in retaliation, isis began beheading measure -- american hostages. one of them was journalist james followy. his parents spoke to us in their new hampshire home. >> because he was american, greta, he was the whipping boy. he was beaten and tortured. he was starved.
4:31 pm
we are only finding this out now. horrible, he endured you know greta it was horrible. as a frantic mother, did i my best, not enough. but i did my best. >> if jim hadn't been in sirria, i may not have been as pro-ransom, negotiation, et cetera. but when it's your own son, after the r. and you have been not been told other activities going on that might mitigate the situation what do we as family have left? we have no other alternatives and we began to raise ransom. >> hope of negotiating we asked for people to pledge
4:32 pm
us donations if, in fact, we got the situation where money was asked for. >> we were told that we might be prosecuted. big deal. i would rather be in a prison here than my son being in a prison over there. >> james folly was a journalist who knew the risks he was taking. but what about brendon tevlin in the 19-year-old lacrosse player was gunned down on the way home from a senator a quiet new jersey suburb. and when his killer alli mohammed brown was finally caught and confessed to the murder, he called brendon a just kill in the name of jihad. "on the record" spoke to brendon's parents at his former high school. >> i really haven't thought too much about the people who did. this obviously from the reports he is not a very nice person. >> in our opinion, he he ask is a murderer and in this case i don't think he acted alone. whether down the road the law enforcement comes to the conclusion that he is involved with something bigger or whether he is
4:33 pm
self-proclaiming this for some other reason is up for the -- i figure the truth will come out. >> we are really just trying to keep brendon's memory out there and really just if anybody can, you know, get anything from it, just remember how good of a kid he was and, you know, live like brendon. >> new jersey to benghazi. on september 11th, 2012, terrorists attacked the american consulate in benghazi. four americans were murdered including ambassador chris stevens and former navy seal glenn daughtery. "on the record" spoke with glen doherty's mother in october o. >> do you have any problem with the fact that even though this days you are reading different stories about what happened? >> some of the stories like glenn went up to help and one of the sod he was the only one that came up to help. that's a good story.
4:34 pm
but his love for his fellow man is what cost him his life. you have the sadness there but you also know he did the right thing in his eyes. he always went to help somebody. >> do you have any, i guess criticism is a harsh word especially for the mother of a child who has lost his life. but about how the government handled it that night? >> well, the more we are finding out, the more criticism you feel, yes. i dealt in felt in the beginning that there was such chaos that it couldn't be helped it wasn't. >> 214 days that's how long u.s. marine andrew tahmooressi was locked behind bars in mexico when he returned. when he was finally released sergeant tahmooressi spoke
4:35 pm
only "on the record." we retraced tahmooressi's steps driving the same route he did before he was arrested and thrown in prison. >> look at the signs, it says mexico only. that's not illuminated sign. the only is rather faded. the other sign over here, which says mexico only, no u.s.a. there is graffiti over the no u.s.a. and the mexico only. here is the confusing part is that you would be be inclined to want to go that direction to go to san diego. since that's the direction of san diego. if he had intended to go to mexico, you would expect that he would look for a road that would go in that direction. >> we are coming right up to where he got on. right beyond the shrubbery. i'm staying in the left lane. because i want to return to the u.s.a. i can stay in the left lane. he is over here to the right. he can't get over here i'm in. >> "on the record" spent two days sitting outside a mexican prison. inside that prison u.s. marine andrew tahmooressi. the jailed marine cuffed to
4:36 pm
a bed after making a wrong turn to mexico. the mexican government gave us two days in a row. his mother jill tahmooressi who spoke to our team spoke to the son and went "on the record." >> he is not a criminal. he made a mistake and made a wrong turn and said right at the border i've got guns. i don't want to be here. let me turn around and go home. he certainly doesn't want to be with with criminals. because is he not a criminal. >> 214 days. our u.s. marine jailed in horrendous conditions wondering when or even if he would ever set foot. >> 100,000 of you have officially signed that white house petition to get sergeant tam tahmooressi's. "on the record" didn't let up and neither did u.s. marine and former talk show host montel williams who regularly spoke with andrew. >> andrew, how are you doing? i said look, you know,
4:37 pm
that's a stupid question. you know the question i'm asking you, brother, how are you doing? his exact words were: i can't keep the bad thoughts out. that right there is what's going on. finally freed. andrew tahmooressi walking out of mexican prison and back on american soil. sergeant tahmooressi going "on the record" days after his release telling you everything including his daring escape attempt. >> what happened after they caught you trying to escape? did they then lock you down or what was their response to it? >> their response was after i had given up, after i have surrendered, i laid on -- well, i laid on the ground. i laid on the ground and then comes over running and starts whacking me with a stick. another guard puts his boot
4:38 pm
on my head stho drag me wall put me on my knees up against the wall. and then they just started hitting me. they started hitting me, hitting me in the face with with open palms. nothing full blown but, you know, just like. >> a lot of americans especially the vets. montel a marine though really want to help you. they appreciate the fact what you did for our country. >> i know. >> they want to make sure you are okay? >> yeah. i'm okay. i'm going to be okay. >> i know. >> i will be okay, everyone. i promise. >> and coming up, what goes on behind the scenes at "on the record"? well, you are about to it find out. stay tuned. >> my producers want me to sort of get in on this washington fun. so they made an "on the record" valentine. i do not blame me for this

4:40 pm
4:41 pm
4:42 pm
each night i go off-the-record and give you my thoughts on stories. let's take a look at some of the most memorable "on the records" from 2014. i smell a rat. just how bad does our government think we are? no wonder this country is such a mess. i'm lived with attorney
4:43 pm
general eric holder. president obama has lost his mojo. senator harry reid is a bully. since the rest of us can multitask, the president can do. get to work. washington, d.c. is is the city of no consequences. >> tricky, tricky, tricky, tricky that's what politics is all about. something is wrong with some people. the american people deserve better. >> that sounds like a ham sandwich to me. >> what a dare devil. yes, i'm talking about president george h.w. bush. remember this? two weeks ago on his 9th birthday. that's scary any time. i wouldn't do that on my 18th birth d.a. that is not crazy enough for president bush. he likes scary stuff like jumping out of a plane. yesterday president bush 41 took a big risk, this time it was with me. he got in a cart with me at the wheel. now, that sounds dangerous, doesn't it? but i was his designated driver at a charity event in maine. well, mrs. bush, of course she was there she didn't ride with with me. she is way too smart for that president obama has
4:44 pm
been repeatedly threatening congress saying if congress won't act, he is just going to pick up his phone and pen and act without them. well, that's just silly politics it doesn't make the president look like a leader. it makes him look like a bully. >> now, this is one of the strangest things. politicians who don't like fox news talk about us all the time. they just can't help themselves. i love it every time they get all revved up about fox, we get the free advertising. yeah, i know, of the critics are not saying nice things about us, but that's their problem, it's not ours. it makes them look petty, doesn't it? sometimes like they are hiding stuff. their cracks are helping us. they are giving us free advertising. advertising we can't pay for. they have been doing this for years. and we have been number with one since january 2002. have at it it keep it up. i have a one page jobs bill. no kidding. one page. it's for anyone, any age, out of work nor than a year who wants a job and a future. it's a $35,000 paid

internship. any company big or small can hire an intern for one year. now you are asking where in the world do we get the $35,000 to pay the intern? that's easy, a tax credit. this plan is simple, targeted, matches needed skills with jobs available. we don't even need to add any bureaucracy. businesses just take that $35,000 credit on their tax return. should we lighten up on kids? of course, vandalism is wrong, it's against the law. cheating in school, that's wrong too. but i wonder if the punishment she's days for children acting stupid like children do too harsh. now, when i was a little kid and you got caught cheating and don't tell me you never did or if you did the unthinkable, minor vandalism and i mean minor like a prank, you got a different punishment. you that could be hellish. >> on the autoth anniversary of my getting picked up by the police in appleton, wisconsin for soaping windows, yes, i was a little kid can and a very stupid kid at that it was enough to catch hell from my parents. i think i turned out okay.
