6:21 am
dagen: president trump calling out after u.s. policies could lead to the mother of all wars with iran. he did tweet the president wrote to iranian president rouhani, never threatened again or you will suffer as. we are no longer a country that will stand for your demented word to violence and death. be cautious. all caps. this coming as the secretary of state mike pompidou is going out religious leaders addressing plans to impose economic sanctions. >> the ayatollahs are in on the act, too. more concerns with riches than religion. all kinds of crooked schemes become some of the wealthiest man on earth while their people suffer.
6:22 am
undertaken diplomatic pressure campaign to enrich itself and death and destruction. dimmick editorial director for the "washtington examiner." your take on this. >> president trump is everything untrue reminded that things don't go well. you probably remember saddam hussein promised against the united states but he was during the first gulf war he was dead after the second. what you are hearing here is the effect that iranians are feeling the strain of the end of the deal for president obama put in place. the united states and israel and arab countries are putting pressure on iran to undermine throughout the region. >> you think we get a new deal because again, new sanctions will go into place. i think it starts next month.
6:23 am
few american companies really stepped up to begin doing business in a significant way in iran after the nuclear deal from president obama because of his not ratified as a treaty and they assumed the next president because they could be republican would pull out enough that happen. >> european countries have made the calculation. do they want to do business with the iranian economy or business with a much bigger american economy. they are going to have to adjust and start scaling back and a bit us. of course there's the question of oil export. that could mean as much as a trillion dollars of lost revenue to the iranians over the course of the next 10 years. this is a really, really serious problem for the iranians that
6:24 am
the mullahs are losing support for the country. the country is fed up with you fiat received. the allies, the united dates come israel in countries that saudi arabia are increasing pressure to undermine the iranian regime. >> mature shell. they can made reference in terms of whether or not there's a new deal. if there was some sort of new deal, what with the foundation be? obviously much different, but his server broker framework for what it would look like? >> this obviously doesn't seem to me that the deal can be done with the iranians in the way that obama admin is ration it. the last thing the administration wants to do is show that in place.
6:25 am
i don't know if there's a deal that can be done acceptable to this country and acceptable to iran. >> just to clarify, the first sanctions are set to take place next month. it's on august the fourth, so it is coming up shortly followed by the measures that will target iranian oil on november 4th. that is why it is so critical that the united states has a growing oil supply that were increasingly energy independent. peer back is an incredible amount of leverage over someone like russia if it hurt her and cried. >> the united states became the biggest energy producer more than a year ago. the biggest oil producer as well overtaken saudi arabia then leveraged all over the world. president trump in europe a week
6:26 am
or so ago pressing germany and the gas pipeline from russia, putting pressure on them to buy energy from the united states. the united states has a much greater ability than the ever had to control the price of oil cannot the way it the iranians. >> there was also the report that we will give some of our allies in europe they pass on purchasing oil from iran. is that phil on the table because i've heard stories both ways. >> i've heard stories both ways, too. it's also been said that the november deadline is the deadline of the europeans will have to form. the more likely it is the europeans are going to have to scramble to get themselves in position. they don't want to have any sanctions that will prevent their access to the iranian market. >> all of this surely will be discussed with jean-claude

6:30 am
dagen: good morning, i'm dagen mcdowell if for maria bartiromo, monday july 23rd, top stories at 6:30 a.m. eastern. earning season if full swing. one-third of the dow and s&p 500 are to post result this is week, checking market action this morning, we have futures are slightly lower across the board but much news is coming down the pipeline to move those markets,
6:31 am
19-point loss on dow futures right now. on friday all three markets finished the day, little change. still up week for the dow and s&p. in europe we have declines across the board. stocks selling off in just a bit. the biggest loser cac quarante france half a 1%. in asia overnight, markets closing mixed. the nikkei in japan and kospi in south korea both lower. a board room battle heating up, why papa johns are adopting a poison pill to stop founder from gaining controlling stake in the pizza chain. that's ahead. plus hawaii is work to go bring business back after volcanic eruptions displaced residents. how the state could start a lava tourism business later this hour. and a alcohol taking inspiration from star trek.
6:32 am
>> it is alcohol substitute being served aboard ships. taste of alcohol but intoxicating effects can be easily dismissed. dagen: details of new liquor that contains vodka and award to producer who located that clip from star trek. [laughter] dagen: top story this half hour, technology in focus among the big names reporting earnings today, google's parent company alphabet, after the week the company was hit with fine by eu. ceo of salt financial. good to see you. >> good to be here. dagen: what are you expecting from alphabet today in. >> we are excited about google's earnings today. [laughter] >> it has shown a lot more life lately. it has gone from what we view as a calm stock only rising about
6:33 am
1.1% more than the s&p for the first few months to now actually showing more sensitivity and what we really look for are stocks and sectors that are sensitive to overall market because that's where we think investors can get an edge. >> volatile when we enter this year, it's been a theme, it's been returned to the market and i think a lot of individual investors have had a hard time dealing but the good news is it has resulted of decoupling of individual securities from the overall market, how do you take of advantage of that and is tech the biggest place to take advantage? >> tech has been certainly the big story all year. you look at performance, up 50% year to date versus, what, 5% for the s&p, so -- but if you will have a broader market rally, other sectors need to participate as well. certainly we all remember february, but if you look at last year, we all kind of fell
6:34 am
asleep, volatility was incredibly low and market was resilient and no sign of slowing down or going down, this year volatility has returned a little bit more to normal, i believe 12, 13 right now. normally around 17. we are still somewhat calm. dagen: where do you think is the greatest risk in terms of looking at industries that are overpriced right for volatility. i was looking at how the big tech stocks perform month to date and alphabet going into this earnings report still up 6%, it's not up as much say facebook, amazon or even a microsoft, microsoft is up closer to 8% but still got a really nice fat gain for the month? >> it's interesting that you mention facebook, that's going to report later on, i believe it's on wednesday. dagen: and amazon. >> just focus on amazon, the thing that's important for investors, particularly retail, only three ways to make money in
6:35 am
the market, selection, timing and overall allocation and facebook has been a relatively calm stock believe it or not, it had an issue in february, march, i believe, it brushed it off, hit new highs but it's not moving as much with the market and that's what we look for in terms of giving edge back to invests or to basically participate more in the up rally. >> alfred, if you want to look beyond tech names clearly driving the s&p, where are the places in the s&p 500, what sectors would you sort of rotate to if you are worried about some of how the names have gotten in. >> sure, we love financials and technology, three biggest sectors, we see the sectors way more sensitive to the overall market than some of the others and we think that's where you want to be exposed for this quarter. ironically energy was the big surprise, second quarter, i don't think anyone really called it out but it actually outpaced
6:36 am
technology, it was a 14% surprise gainer versus 5% at the same time, thinking about sectors, industrials, financials and technologies where you want to be right now. >> you think energy, though, because this is going a good quarter for energy. >> 11 billion-barrels a day. >> so the numbers should be really good. >> true, but then we saw some pressure on crude and we saw the energy trade slip away. if we are going to get into a balance and if we are going to have more momentum in the second half of the year, we don't see energy right now as the place to be. the industrials, financials and technology sectors right now are demonstrating to us the highest true beta scores. dagen: you mentioned industrials and are most vulnerable to trade fight that we have gotten into even our major trading partners
6:37 am
with the steel and aluminum tariffs initially, even the washing machine tariffs earlier in the year that kicked in january and now we are in this fight and so there's the greatest downside risk in industrials. i pointed out caterpillar and 3m are down respectfully year to date and we've got 3m, harley davidson and whirlpool coming with earnings this week. >> when we look at tariffs, 32 billion, you know, it's not a big piece of the overall economy, i think last week with the trump administration talking about potentially 500 billion, that's a different -- that's a different ball game, so it will be challenged. dagen: did the market react to that at all in. >> it flinched a little bit and didn't have a massive move. for investors to take market,
6:38 am
the market has become resilient and by that i mean in 20 plus years of the business, i have seen the market become better and better in distilling information, not getting actually being able to differentiate between sensationalism and substance and i think we is that true last week. dagen: what about the sensationalism and the substance about the president tweeting about the federal reserve and u.s. dollar and other currencies because secretary mnuchin came out and said, well, the president believes in an independent federal reserve in the past when you have presidential pressure on the central bank it down the road has created some serious problems for the country and i'm talking about run away inflation in the 70's. >> chairman powell i think did a great job with his testimony last week. i think what he demonstrated was a clarity in how he sees things progressing, it's very hard not
6:39 am
to be optimistic given how tremendous the job market looks right now. i think he's doing the president a favor by controlling inflation, you get the continue the growth. dagen: maybe the president -- we will see if the president is hearing that message because the wall street journal reported that he picked jay powell over kevin and john taylor because he was told that -- that jay powell would be more malleable. so, again, there's some expectation that there could be some executive branch control over the fed, but we will see what happens. good to see you alfred. >> thank you. dagen: thank you and president trump is tweeting this morning. so we now find out that it was indeed the unverified and dirty dossier that was paid for by crooked hillary clinton and dnc that was knowingly and falsely submitted to fisa and which was responsible for starting the totally conflicted and discredited mueller witch hunt. we will dig into more of that, but, again, those fisa documents
6:40 am
we leased, still redacted but released over the weekend and the president has been busy tweeting on that note and we will discuss it coming up. we will also talk about oil, all eyes watching the cost of crude with global trade worries, the president's threats to iran and chevron reporting earnings this week, busy week for big oil, plus giving moon shine a whole new meaning. [laughter] dagen: new star trek vodka that promises to be out of this world.
6:41 am
6:42 am
6:43 am
6:44 am
dagen: energy in focus, oil prices after third weekly decline in a row. joining us steven shorck, using tough language on that regime, what are you looking at in terms of driving oil prices today and this week? >> well, i tell you what, dagen, nothing like waking up as oil trader at 4:00 o'clock in the morning seeing tweet storm between trump, that will put a step right there and i can't imagine what iranians are thinking of, they are daring trump to release barrels from the reserve and i have been talking for the past two months actually since trump reenacted the sanctions against iran. you have two big factors that the bulls are counting on right now, dagen, first and foremost we had unplanned outage in
6:45 am
canada, so import from canada this summer, peak driving season have fallen to the floor, significant amount of bar riles over 5-week stretch, 31 million-barrel decline in u.s. crude oil stocks. we also have a situation oil here in new york harbor where you take delivery on diesel contract, where we are looking at supplies given the norresters that we saw in march and the yields from refineries, stocks at lowest points since 2000, trump outside of ego has two fundamental justifications for release of spr, so iranians ought to trend lightly in this case. dagen: when do you roughly, i think it's a little bit more than that, steven -- >> something like that. dagen: when do you back this
6:46 am
would happen? and you have trade tensions with canada and even méxico but canada which is a critical supplier of oil into the united states, when do you think the spr release happens? >> well, it's a possibility right there and it's certainly on our radar, at this point of the season and i think your prior guest said that he's not into energy right now, it's a good thought because right now demand has peaked for crude oil. we are at the peak crude oil demand season, in the weeks, months ahead, crude oil will begin to fall as we transition, we are also looking at gasoline stocks unlike diesel stocks, one of the highest levels for the month of july we have ever seen, right now the demand is falling, the big caveat, dagen, is the situation with geopolitics, watch twitter account and from
6:47 am
fundamental standpoint if we are going to see pullback in continued prices, we are at the point, command has peak and start falling in weeks ahead, we are going into the fall months looking at falling demand, rising production, so the coast is clear for lower prices, we have to wait and see and the one caveat out there as i said the diesel situation in new york harbor and geopolitical tensions with our friends over in tehran. dagen: i will point out in terms of you talking about gasoline stock highs, demand peaking, the national average for gasoline has been falling, 2.84 right now, that's the current average. that's higher than it was a year ago, but that is lower than it was a month ago, lower than it was a week ago as well. lindsey. >> absolutely. because what happens -- yeah, sorry, i'm sorry. >> i was just going say we saw
6:48 am
halliburton numbers and they missed pretty significantly, i think 41 cents versus 58 cents expected on the bottom line, what are you expecting from the energy sector as a whole, i know these are service companies but what are you expecting in earning season? >> yeah, no, i expect from both an up stream and downstream. i'm expecting another solid quarter. we have 75-dollar oil where the market is holding, we are significantly high frer oil perspective. certainly from demand perspective. so all of the people who want to complain they think gasoline prices are too high, if they are too high why is demand at all-time high, obviously gasoline prices are not too high, it's because the economy is much stronger, the stronger
6:49 am
economy leads commodity prices, they are following the economy and i would expect the earnings from this industry to follow in accord. dagen: same story can be said about interest rates too, stephen, good to see you my friend. stephen shorck, coming upturning the volcano into explosion of cash, next hawaii's plan to boost tourism by using the same lava that's damaging the industry. ing to watch your child grow up and especially get behind the wheel. i want to keep you know, stacking up the memories and the miles and the years. he's gonna get mine -but i'm gonna get a new one. -oh yeah when it's time for your old chevy truck to become their new chevy truck, there's truck month. get 18% of msrp cash back on all silverado 1500 crew cab lt pickups when you finance with gm financial.
6:50 am
that's $9,000 on this silverado. plus, during truck month make no monthly payments for 90 days. wells fargo has supported community organizations like united way, non-profits like the american red cross, and our nation's veterans. we knew helping our communities was important then. and we know it's even more important today. so we're stepping up to volunteer more and donate over a million dollars every day. so our communities can be even stronger. it's a new day at wells fargo. but it's a lot like our first day.
6:51 am
6:52 am
dagen: poppa johnson taking action against its former chairman. cheryl casone has the details. cheryl: drama continues for papa johns, their board has voted to
6:53 am
adopt a poison bill aimed to preventing john schnatter getting controlling stake in the company that he founded with one pizza oven, schnatter owns 29%, things may be changing now. shares of papa johns down 8% so far this year. well, this is fascinating, images of hawaii's kilauea volcano, big island businesses are asking for lava viewing site somewhere on the island but authorities haven't found a safe way to do this. pressures mounting from local merchants and tour guides who have seen tourism industry completely drop off on the island since it began erupting in may and that small town is

7:00 am
the nikkei and south korea both headed lower. g20 finance ministers heading a high -- holding a high stakes meeting over the weekend where treasury secretary mnuchin outlined the administration's priority especially when it comes to china. >> we want more balanced trade. both presidents agreed on the objective, and we want to have our companies have the same access to the their markets that they have to us. we want to have the right to protect our ip and our technology anywhere in the world with. that's not just china-specific. dagen: that's what the administration wants. will this country get it? the implications for the market and economy straight ahead. turning to the duck boat tragedy in missouri, the sunken boat set to be lifted out of the water by the coast guard this morning. the latest on the investigation coming up. a warning for some uber and lyft
7:01 am
customers, a driver in the st. louising area secretly recorded passengers and then posted those videos online. the fallout later this hour. and outrage at wrigley field. an adult fan steals a ball from a young fan, but the cubs intervened. this story has a happy ending. that guy can rot in you know where. all of that coming up this morning -- [laughter] lindsay bell, mitch rochelle and lee rt carter. >> what is wrong with people? dagen: lee, i don't know. i don't know. again, people say, oh, it's just outrage on social media and twitter. no, it's not, actually, we see bad behavior front and center right there in the ballpark. >> let the child have the ball. >> that's the cheer if you go to a ball game and an adult takes
7:02 am
the ball, everybody cheers give the kid the ball. dagen: well, everything worked out in the end. to our top story this hour, trade tensions taking center stage, president trump showcasing american products from all 50 statements today. the display follows escalating trade tensions with europe, mexico, canada and china, a battle that has american manufacturers wrestling with the fallout from trump's tear i haves. joining me -- tariffs. joining me now, gordon chang. this even follows the threats to impose tariffs on all $500 billion worth of chinese imports into this country every year. the commerce department had a harding last week about imposing tariffs on awe eau imports. that still remains to be seen, but how much retaliation can we expect from china? how dangerous is this to the
7:03 am
united states economy, do you think? >> well, the chinese will retaliate but, you know, first of all, they've run out of bullets. we only export to them $130 billion or something, and we take from them $505.5 billion last year. a lot of people say, well, the chinese can retaliate against u.s. companies in china, but chinese officials don't want that to happen because they're worried about the effect on the europeans and others who are investing in china, and they think that could really boomerang on china and hurt beijing much more than us. dagen: treasury secretary steve mnuchin amplified president trump's trade threats in argentina over the weekend at that g20 meeting of finance ministers. the secretary said this, quote, that he wouldn't minimize the chance of the u.s. imposing tariffs on all -- its half a a trillion of chinese goods that we import into the united states, but he still promises a light at the end of the table.
7:04 am
listen to this, and i want to get your reaction. >> president trump is determined to have free and fair and more balanced trade, and we just want to make sure american companies and american workers are treated fairly. and, yes, i do see a light at the end of the tunnel. dagen: how do you think this plays out? do you think it doesn't get to the point where we do slap tariffs on all imports coming in from china. >> that's a real possibility. this is for the theft of the u.s. intellectual property. after that investigation into china's thievery. so, yeah, we call this a trade war, but really this is about a remedy for thievery. it has trade implications, but we've got to do this, dagen, because the chinese take hundreds of billions of dollars of u.s. ip a year. this is just unsustainable. dagen: then why didn't we crack down on chinese companies buying
7:05 am
entities here in the united states and then the technology exports into china? instead we kind of took a little bit of a lighter touch with the increased cfius restrictions or committee on foreign investment in the u.s., that was more what secretary mnuchin wanted, that's what congress is moving to do. they actually came out of conference last week with how that would be applied. they basically strengthened cfius. why tonight we take a harder approach on that note? >> because we are americans and we are so give yous and have been for -- so oblivious and have been for a very long time. started the last year of the obama administration, president trump has blocked two or three acquisitions under cfius. this is going to be something we're going to see much, much more of. yes, people don't like tariffs, but now we're starting to think about the alternatives. it could end up being sort of like an import ban.
7:06 am
if we're looking at gods that have been benefiting -- goods that have been benefiting, there's all sorts of things the administration can look at. dagen: does this administration need to start talking about how this is going to play out in the u.s. economy, more specifically say, hey, half a trillion worth of imports, if you buy anything made in china, you're going to pay more for it. hey, farmers, you've got 2.5 billion pounds of meat that's piling up as exports slow to these nations, soybean farmers that are getting hit. there is going to be pain, and it could be widespread, but does this administration need to be the really frank with the american people about this? >> well, it certainly does. and, you know, president trump has hinted about the pain. but clearly, you cannot have decades of really bad trade policy and policies on ip theft and not expect that the u.s. isn't going to suffer at all. we are going to suffer, but we actually have to do this because of the scale of china's perdition.
7:07 am
>> so there's a lot of people out there who are saying this is a game of chicken and that, ultimately, that the chinese are going to have to give something up here. how long do you think it's going to take that we're going to be feeling this pain until there's some movement? >> you know, we could be in a decades-long struggle with china. you know, when the treasury secretary talks about having equal access to the chinese market, that's just ridiculous. the chinese system is designed to prevent access of foreigners into china. and under xi jinping it's become less open than it was before. is, you know, this is going to be a long-term struggle. so we can be in this for a very, very, very long time. >> china's devaluing their currency, they're releasing reserves from the banks, and they must be feeling the pain already from these early moves on trade. what brings them to the able? >> i think when xi jinping realizes there's no more chinese economy left, that's when you get to the point.
7:08 am
now look -- dagen: we have that power? because, again, if we want to take more power -- >> it's easy. dagen: -- then we stop running $1 federal annual -- $1 trillion annual budget deficits, that we stop the spending so much money and we don't have to lean on china so much to buy our debt because we're not, because we can try to control spending. >> yeah. i don't think we have to worry about the debt. the one thing, president trump really wants to hurt the chinese economy, he just louded chairman powell to -- allows chairman powell to the raise rates. that's affecting the chinese economy. money is coming out. and, you know, you go back to this whole thing about the currency, i don't think china is actually devaluing its currency. it's tumbling, it had its worst month ever last year against the dollar, but the chinese people are not expressing confidence in their own currency, and i think beijing is trying to prevent the fall rather than encourage it. down the road i could see
7:09 am
beijing changing tack and forcefully driving down to help exporters, but they're not doing that now because they're so worried about currency outflow which almost killedded the economy in 2015 and 2016. >> just from a capital markets perspective, we've seen money flowing out of chinese equity markets. we're also seeing less money domestically in infrastructure, in capital expenditures of their companies, so is this beginning to happen? and does their administration realize their economy's starting to get shaky? >> yeah, i think the chinese do understand that. you have -- [audio difficulty] look, we cannot sustain a long-term struggle with the united states. and right now you're starting to see real signs of stress in the chinese economy whether you're talking about the tunnel the bling stock markets, you know, the currency that looks like it's in the early stages of collapse. all the debt defaults. the problems with the peer-to-peer lenders, it just goes on and on, mitch. i don't know if xi jinping has
7:10 am
any answer pent to take on more debt, and chinese are saying, no, this doesn't work. >> but if they continue to take on more debt there, do they have the wallet to buy our debt? because that could drive our interest rates even higher if there's no bid coming from china for u.s. treasuries. >> yeah, you know, china's going to have sell dollars to support their currency. they've been doing that up til now, they're going to have to do that because of their own internal problems. you know, china's going to do what it's going to have to do because their economy's at the point where, you know, anything -- if it goes wrong, could trigger the crisis of confidence that we saw three years ago. teag deag if we're getting tough on china, why didn't we stick by that ban on zte in this country? it appears the sanctions put back in this defense bill were stripped out again. >> amen to that, you know, we should not have given them relief are. administration officials don't talk to me, but my guess is this wednesday there is the deadline
7:11 am
on qualcomm's deal to buy nxp, the semiconductor company. that deal will be held up if china does not give approval. my guess, dagen, and this is just pure speculation s is that the administration gave relief to zte so that qualcomm will get that approval for the acquisition. i don't know, but it makes a lot of sense to me that you could have a tit for tat sort of we'll do something more you, you do something for us. dagen: we've got $34 billion in chinese imports right now that have tariffs on them, that they've retaliated dollar for dollar, if you will, another $16 billion coming, an additional $200 billion. do you think the united states puts a tariff on every dollar worth of imports into this country, more than half aing trillion? do you think that happens? >> i think we get up to maybe $400 billion is just my guess. and this is nothing that i know, it's just sort of thinking about it, that president trump will actually go forward with the
7:12 am
200. i don't think we get to the whole 505.5, but we're going to get very, very close are. dagen: and there's really no way to truly know how china retaliates. >> yeah. xi jinping is a tough guy. larry kudlow said a couple days ago, look, the chinese officials want to deal with us, but xi jinping is saying no. this has become very, very political. they're coming into their august conference, the chinese communist senior officials, they're going to be talking about this. this is the number one topic on their agenda because xi jinping now owns this crisis. dagen: how quickly does this show up when people go to a store and want to buy something? can they find out or do they have to pay for more it? >> i don't think there's a problem. china is no longer the low cost producer. the only company that can't shift production on a dime is apple because they're stuck with foxconn, foxconn is in schoen
7:13 am
general and other locations in china. apple can really get hurt because they're going to be the number one target that the chinese officials are going to look at. yeah, they might like tim cook, but tomorrow they see he's the weak point in the u.s. economy. dagen: gordon chang, good to talk to you. coming up, caught on camera without knowing it. uber and lyft dropping a driver nor live streaming passengers. the fallout for the ride-sharing apps and the users captured on live video. plus, a happy ending for one young cubs' fan. the chicago baseball club stepping in after a grown man steals a foul ball from a child. we've got that story ahead. ♪ at fidelity, our online u.s. equity trades are just $4.95. so no matter what you trade, or where you trade,

more money problems for millennial, members of this generation opting to raid their retirement savings for a down payment on a home according to a new survey from bank of the west, nearly one in three say they borrowed against their 401(k) or ira to buy a home. financial advisers say it could put their retirement at risk in the future. one of them said this, quote: tapping your 401(k) to buy a home should be a last resort, millennial home buyers should exhaust all other funding options first. roth iras allow penalty-free withdrawals of up to $10,000 for first-time home purchases. home ownership is a priority for millennials who say, hey, it's a good financial investment. dagen. dagen: but, gerri, here's or what i'll argue. if you actually borrow from your 401(k) and your company -- it's up to whether your company allows it -- it doesn't trigger as long as you begin to repay
7:25 am
it, you don't have to pay the penalty and you don't have to pay tax on it. you can take your own money out of your 401(k) plan, and it's automatically repaid through paycheck deduction. >> and the problem with that, okay -- dagen: so you think there's a problem? >> yes, i do. dagen: i know plenty of people who have done it. >> everybody does it. 20% of folks have a loan out against their 401(k), but when you take that money out, it automatically reduces your take-home because you're paying that back immediately through rules on, you know, your income, right? secondly, you're probably going to end up selling high and buying -- or buying low and selling high, because you'll sell when the s&p is at one level and by the time you're ready to reinvest again, it'll be at a higher level. so is it's just a recipe -- >> well, and you give up compound interest. >> that was my next point. dagen: my issue is it's your

paid for it, he'd read reports that the clinton campaign had paid for it. >> mercedes -- >> and, dagen, anybody that comes forward and has an application for wiretapping, it is such an extreme measure that when you make these applications, you have to fully vet the information that you're providing to the judges. and that's what's so troubling to everyone, because this is an extreme measure taken by the doj. >> mercedes, the documents that were released were heavily redacted, i don't know that i've ever seen a document so redacted. >> right. >> one of the things judge napolitano's talked about with us is potentially are going to a judge and letting a judge read the unredacted version, do you think there's going to be any possibility of getting that done? because if we want transparency, we certainly don't have it right now. >> that's a great point, and a lot of things can happen in camera where the judges can read this in privacy. it's not published to the public, and it is critical especially when you're talking
7:38 am
about issues of this magnitude when such extreme measures are taken in terms of wiretapping. that is the most extreme measure that can be taken when it comes to these types of investigations. so certainly, that could be done. >> i'm really curious what you think. this weekend the left is acting like something great happened, and the right's acting like something great happened, but did we really learn anything new at all? >> frankly, not really because there are extreme redactions done in the application. two, carter page's already in the crosshairs of the doj in terms of what he had already presented. by his own admission in 2013, he had written that he had informal advisor to the russians. so he was already in that universe. he was already -- i don't want to say targeted, but certainly he was already looked at by the doj because anyone that may have these informal ties to russia would necessarily be in that
7:39 am
realm of at least scrutiny by the doj. so we've already -- he's already in their crosshairs. and once he started orbiting close to the trump campaign, that's when, of course, it piqued their interest even greater, and that's when they moved forward with with the wiretap. at least the application for the wiretapping. dagen: mercedes, chairman goodlatte also confirmed that former cia director john brennan will be called to testify. listen to this. >> we have lots of questions for john brennan, and he will definitely be sought by the committees for an interview. this is an extremely disturbing thing, to see both he and james comey -- supposedly impartial government officials -- carrying out their jobs in very important areas in intelligence gathering and law enforcement express the kind of extreme bias that they've shown now which i think reflects quite accurately on what they were doing back in 2016. dagen: mercedes, could brennan face legal ramifications for his
7:40 am
role in the surveillance? >> well, certainly if there is any indication that he had lied to -- within the process, certainly he could face prosecution. so it really depends on what representations are made in the past, what representation he's going to make once he testifies, and les always the specter -- there's always the specter of perjury, which is lying urn both. dagen: and he has acknowledged that he's egged on the fbi's probe in russia. that was in a "wall street journal" editorial last friday. turning to the supreme court, majority leader mitch mcconnell is said to be willing to call democrats' bluff on nominee brett kavanaugh, let the vote slip until right before the midterm elections. do you see any way kavanaugh is not confirmed before or the midterms in november? >> i know there's going to be a lot of push. the democrats are seeking over a million pages of documents, so it certainly could last beyond the midterm elections, but there's going to be a tremendous
7:41 am
push to put him forward, to have a vote. there's going to be a lot of that. but it all depends on how much information's being sought by the democrats. and, frankly, at this point it's unreasonable in terms of how much they're seeking. dagen: and i want to point this out, because you raised this issue. brett kavanaugh, i'm talking to lee carter real quick, this is one of the reasons the president's approval rating has held up so well and actually ticked up. >> that's absolutely right. the republican base continues to support this president even when things are not going great with him. they're saying the most important thing to me is the supreme court, and they're laser focused on it. i'm fascinated to see though, if they don't get this done, is it going to energize democrats? because they haven't had anything to vote for for so long, a lot of resist, not a lot of things to vote for. people are wanting to support for gay marriage, roe version -- roe v. wade, but asking for a million pages, that is
7:42 am
obstructionist, that is sending the -- something the american people are not going to favor no matter where they sit on the aisle. i think that the democrats have got to start moving things forward and get to stand for something. dagen: mercedes, i'm going to give you the final word. >> and it's also disruptive to the supreme court. we have a vacancy that needs to be filled. so without that filled, you not have decisions necessarily rendered, because it may be a 4-4 split. you need that deciding vote, whichever wait it swing -- way it swings. dagen: the democrats would love that, doing a whole lot of nothing. they're good at it. mercedes cing olwin, great to see you. thanks for getting up early. coming up, uber and lyft dropping a driver for live streaming passengers. the fallout ahead. plus, profitability problems. tesla now reportedly asking suppliers for refunds to help it turn a profit. the latest headache for the electric carmaker. look at that stock drop.

8:11 am
sudden, so which is it? you don't get you don't get to say because you didn't vote. >> right, again, here is the issue for me, i came as a businessman look at numbers 85% of our deficit things unremitted to the tax cut, and tax cut if it grows economy it is doing sustained are getting over 3% will pay for itself grow economy pay debt down that is key. dagen: we are going to get first reading on second quarter growth. >> it is going to be likely north 46% "the wall street journal" estimate is 4.2. the gdp now from the atlanta federal reserve bank, is 4 1/2, coming out of white house north 4 1/2, does that stick with people does that -- the number resonate or are they feeling that. >> i think they are feeling it we just discussed earlier in the show, the consumers every day people working class people are feeling the benefits this their paychecks, feeling better, you know we
8:12 am
have the most jobs available out there with the lowest jobless rate, that we've seen in almost 20 years, the consumers feeling good confidence remains high so -- >> you see that in "the wall street journal" nbc news poll that found half of registered voters approve of the president handling of the economy highest mark on that question in the survey, that same poll found that president's approval rating edging higher even during the week, lee carter, when he came under criticism for handling of helsinki summit with russian president vladimir putin the president's approval rating rose to 45% that is the highest of his presidency. >> it is two reasons why number one we can't forget the importance supreme court to voertsdz out there i think republicans will support the president almost no matter what because that is so, so so important to them the other thing i think democrats really -- the way they responded, to help hel the president's comments -- to help hel the president's xaents people ups,
8:13 am
he tried to correct himself. >> the hysteria that happened over that made people more likely to send the defend president democrats the media needs to learn allow to balance their coverage say we might be concerned we don't have to get hysterical if they want moves here, also important to know that even though these are pretty high rates this isn't necessarily significant in that other presidents have had higher approval ratings same point, i think it is telling. >> quick, we have potentially vice president coming to united states, for another summit before people go to polls in november are you concerned about that? >> not at all i think this is again the president has to be able to negotiate even with some of the people that are enemies of us i think that is key, so we will continue doing as we said this confidence is going to continue to build, i want to go back whether a firefighter or police you are 401(k)'s pensions going up that is positive. >> thank you, still to come
