2:01 am
start at 5% on june 10th, escalating each month. one big question, could this derail usmca, just yesterday, the administration tried to jump start the approval process for that trade deal. now, the u.s. trades a lot with mexico, many u.s. companies rely on mexico as a central part of their supply chains. you have some manufactured goods that cross the border two or three times by the time they are finished. the u.s. imported almost $350 billion in goods for mexico last year. mexico also the biggest supplier of agricultural imports. 26 billion in 2018. remember, mexico will not pay these tariffs. american importing companies will. they can pass them on to consumers or they can take a hit to their profit. the president here is frustrated about the border issue amid an increase in illegal crossings. hours before this tariff announcement, dhs announced the largest group of migrants
2:02 am
apprehended by border patrol. more than a thousand people detained by the el paso border patrol. not sure the white house has the legal authority to impose tariffs like this. iowa senator chuck grassley slammed trump's move saying trade policy and border security are separate issues. this is a misuse of presidential tariff authority. in a letter to president trump, the mexican president andre es manuel lopez called for dialogue saying he doesn't believe in an eye for an eye retaliation. there are no words, literally, the big loser in this year's scripps national spelling bee is the dictionary. >> you are correct. >> it's complete. >> not just one word, but eight words from eight kids from six different states. all winners of the annual competition. they survived 20 total rounds on a historic night.

2:04 am
he could have reached a conclusion, the opinion says you cannot indict a president while he's in office but he could have reached a decision as to whether it was criminal activity but he had his reasons for not doing it. >> barr is breaking with the president on one issue telling cbs news, he does not think investigators who opened the russia investigation committed treason as the president has suggested but he does question some people's intent. >> you don't think they committed treason? >> not as a legal matter, right. >> but you have concerns about how they conducted the investigation? >> yes, but, you know, sometimes people can convince themselves that what they're doing is in the higher interest, the better good, day don't realize that what they're doing is really an antithetical to the democratic system we have. >> the attorney general says we live in a quote hyperpartisan age and he claims he makes his decisions based on the law and the facts. well, here's a political

frustrated about the border issue amid an increase in illegal crossings, hours before this tariff announcement dhs announced the largest group of migrants ever apprehended by border patrol. more than a thousand people detained by border patrol. not clear the white house has the legal authority to impose tariffs on this scale. not everyone is on board. iowa senator chuck grassley slamme slammed the move, trade policy and border security are separate issues. this is a misuse of presidential tariff authority. the mexican president called for dialogue saying he doesn't believe for eye for an eye retaliation. let's talk tariffs with rachel bay, cnn political analyst. that movie, by big fat greek wedding. the dad, he sprays windex on every problem, and that's basically the president's tariffs, no matter what the problem, he plays tariffs on it.
2:34 am
you got a zit. >> that amounts to a $17 billion tax. where are republicans beyond chuck graslsley and is this a serious proposal or an effort to distract. >> republicans traditionally hate tariffs. trump obviously loves them, and so he's put them in a bind with his tariff threats and actually going through on tariff threats with a number of countries. what's clear in this situation is trump is unable to get the results he wants at the border. he has used an emergency declaration to build a wall, going around congress. he has fired and got rid of the top leadership of the homeland security department. he has made threats to countries saying if you don't get control of your migrants, i'm going to cut off aid. nothing is working. what you're seeing is the president lash out and try something new. he's playing with fire here because the economy is doing very well. you mentioned that mexico is one of our top trade partners and this is going to upset his own

party. we'll have to see. >> rachel pull back the curtain for me. yesterday people were caught off guard on capitol hill because they were trying to push forward some administrative moves to get the usmca going. the president's own trade deal would make this kind of a move illegal? >> exactly, but that hasn't stopped him from making this threat in the past. a few months ago he did something similar where he threatened mexico, a 25% tariff on cars, and you know, that was again related to immigration. it's just, he sees any way he can sort of, you know, put pressure on other countries to sort of force them on immigration, yeah, he's just -- he's flailing out, looking for l leverage, exactly. >> from trade to treason, bill barr sitting down with january crawford and talking about investigating the investigators. here's what the ag said. >> you don't think they committed treason? >> not as a legal matter, right.
2:36 am
>> but you have concerns about how they conducted the investigation. >> yes, but, you know, sometimes people can convince themselves that what they are doing is in the higher interest, the better good. they don't raelealize what they doing is antithetical to the democratic system we have. >> is it antithetical to democracy, and what is the effort here by the attorney general? >> i mean, look, i feel like he's sending serious warning signs to the people who were part of the beginning of the russia investigation. he has used the word spying before, and in that clip, he says it's not treason in the legal sense, well, that still is like shocking language that he's suggesti suggesting perhaps you could argue that, and then this is just conservatives, trump allies, they have found an ally in barr unlike they could have ever imagined and again, i just think that this is
2:37 am
foreshadowing, that this investigation of the investigator, you know, republicans who are aligned with trump are really going to love the results and it could be a problem for some law enforcement. >> meanwhile, democrats struggling with impeachment and where they want to be on the impeachment spectrum. last night the speaker talked with this about jimmy kimmel. >> as we go down the path, the american people will know the truth and the president will be held accountable. you have to go down the path when you're as ready as you can possibly be, and you don't know that until you go down the path. >> will we be ready before the year 2020? >> yeah, we will. >> what are you hearing from democrats in trump districts specifically about where they are going down this path? >> trump districts are one of the big reasons why pelosi has not signed off on an impeachment push. this week when mueller went to the mics and started talking publicly for the first time.
2:38 am
there was this split screen where russia was talking about the investigation and muler and impeachment, and now in trump districts where myself and colleagues were, nobody was talking about it. not a single question at a town hall i attended and when you talk to democrats in the swing districts, the districts that important to pelosi keeping her majority, most are urging caution just like pelosi, all but one that i interviewed at the town hall i attended said don't do it. it's going to help trump and take away from the agenda they want to focus on. so again, pelosi is just very wary, and she knows that there are less vocal voices who are really concerned about this. >> peggy noonan, the democrats should censure the president, and shame him in a sense. shelves republicans in the senate would actually vote for that, which i don't know about that. rachael bade, good to see you my friend, enjoy the weekend. >> thank you. >> there are no words,
