out protecting americans, protecting national security and he has every authority to do that through that executive order and he maintains that in the position hasn't changed in the slightest. cheryl: meanwhile, george conway and former candidate to the assistant attorney general criticized the president for bashing the department of justice. he said the streets may make some people feel better but they won't help unless she gave 5000 notice which is what matters. god. the trump administration was asked to review the second version of the band. lauren: in london, new questions on whether police could have stopped the deadly terrorist attacks. one of the assailants was known to police and neighbors as radical islamists. ashley webster joining us from london with this unbelievable sight of the story. good to see you, ashley.

july 4th recess in the senate, you have to need a few weeks to get a reconciliation between the house version and senate version and listen to it the parliamentarians had, whether the two bills -- cheryl: although that is procedural and that is local to health care. that further pushes back tax reform. the big question on investors minds has to be can we make tax cut if they are approved by the end of the year applied to the 2017 taxi or pick them or push it too is the unity of the less likely that seems to be. >> if you are listening closely to what mitch mcconnell is singing is that they want to push if it fails they'll push it aside and move on to tax reform. cheryl: you can't make that retroactive is my point. >> it's very difficult this year. it is certainly still
encouraging. they boost economic growth, but if it happens early next year, it will certainly not be a complete disaster. >> are you confident that infrastructure spending? >> right now it's a shame because there is bipartisan support, but given all the other stuff going on, it's real challenge indicated time. right now that is a lower priority. but certainly we agree it doesn't matter what political party you support. lauren: anthony chang connected to see you. cheryl: let's get caught up in what's happening to global market action overnight. asia following the near miss on new records. next-paragraph not a big showing. nikkei down 1%. hang seng in hong kong a passive%. cos the market korea closed. lauren: is ashley webster told us 48 hours, and assisted on 21

more evidence of how much the russian government was involved in spying. this is the gr you come along syrian military intelligence unit is way into the communist days. they're actually trying to figure out how they could get to local government -- local election officials in the united states. they should not surprise anybody that foreign governments are trying to hack into elections and create chaos as much as they are trying to affect health. as much as they can create chaos by being involved in letting that get out that they have been hacking. so it gives us more evidence there. it doesn't show is that the affected anything. cheryl: vladimir putin gave one of his biggest interviews to an american journalist he laughed off all of this. not just denying the hacking, but these are other people

the very difficult questions have to be asked. and asked. and my 5 cents at any given time there is used 3000 islamic extremists that they are trying to maintain contact with anytime 500 investigations are in the way. 20,000 individuals may have sympathies towards radical extremism. so it is a huge task, a big issue and a lot of people wondered how we protect ourselves from these people who go with the very low-tech methods to create chaos. as we saw saturday night and three individuals who used knives to attack people on the street. the whole incident took eight minutes but there is a lot of a lot of carnage in that eight minutes in their questions asked as to how britain can be protected from these attacks. >> we are curious how this can affect the upcoming election.

we haven't seen wages starting to really accelerate. still rising at 2.5% year-over-year. the situation is ripe for a fed rate hike. start doing it slowly and not so aggressively. you don't want that to happen. >> at the same time i hate to go back to politics but she's got all of the uncertainty out of washington. the market in general, the market in general has been big enough positive economic growth policies out of washington. a lot of that in jeopardy. they've got to be listening to the effects is of what's happening with the economy. >> it's all connected to the reason they raise interest rates. index that azure is how the market is proceeding. the index has been below 10 for a long time. the averages 19.6.
we're basically looking at the level of uncertainty close to half the historical average. >> we are looking at the treasury. 2.15% yesterday the third lowest level of the year. what does that tell you about the future of the economy? >> policy is postponing you will not get the major stimulus. in terms of the economy coming in even a version of the curve which is another way of saying that tenure level is lower that the short-term. right now it's not. we have a 1.2% positive yield spread. >> you don't think we will get health care reform this summer or tax-cut this fall? >> we will move aggressively. it's a small probability of getting it. i think the more unlikely it's going to occur or certainly early next year.
>> when the leave it there. >> really good different view. in particular asia, a lot of positivity in the u.s. market but it did lead over too well. the nikkei as you can say that 1%. the hang seng in the shanghai composite traded fractionally higher. kospi was closed overnight. >> the u.k. election down four points at the moment. dx and germany down about 60. cheryl: we'll see how markets do in the united states. pointing to a slightly lower open. s&p down two and three quarters. all about the site as well. >> oil and gold in opposite directions. oil down again another 19 a barrel. gold higher for the third day in a row by almost $9. >> also a stock you want to watch today.

pearls. cheryl: then again, if he puts at risk cover the supreme court decision or at least agree to review. that's a different story impossibility. the testimony on thursday. the white house says the president is not going to invoke executive privilege testified to congress. that seems to be a good political move for the president. what do you think james comey will say on thursday and does that have an impact on the administration? >> yeah, i think what james cobey will do is what he always does. in some ways the hearing is not helpful because the ds information useful for getting to the truth and solving the big questions he should be talking to bob mueller. he should talk to the special counsel. first of all, he's not going to say much in public because they will have to keep status under investigation. i cannot address that.
