6:04 pm
president committed a crime, that is what democrats latched on to today, nancy pelosi did not go as for to say she is pushing for impeachment. >> legislating, we're investigating, we're litigating. we're going to as we go down the path make a decision based on the strongest possible case to get the best results for the american people. reporter: white house tweak their argument a little bit, saying there is no collusion, and attorney general found no obstruction of justice. >> we're not asking you to, robert mueller did 400 pages, laid it out. attorney general made his decision based on mueller's information, everyone keeps forgetting this the entire decision about obstruction was based on mueller's report. reporter: specia special counsee
6:05 pm
may be closed now but democrats in office will make sure we hear about this report, 38 democrats are now pushing for impeachment. >> thank you edward lawrence. >> to rapid fallout from robert mueller's pressure, harvard law professor alan -- >> trying to put his thumb on a scale of justice againsts president. >> special counts should not give advantage to one side he did that, i think he will regret having made to statement. it politicizes his report and gives tremendous ammunition to those who say, that the report was politically bias until today i never thought that mueller had a partisan bias. today i changed my mind on that decision. elizabeth: this after robert mueller seemed to give a parting
6:06 pm
shot to president trump on the way out. saying that justice department policy prohibits him from indeeding a sitting president, kicking the can to congress, saying quote: let's bring in robert and matt schlapp. >> great to be with you. elizabeth: robert. with obstruction. what is worse thing that president trump did? the political cryptonnite here? >> the report lists 11 as you say, worst is when he spoke with white house council tried to get him to fire robert mueller. then firing of comey. i don't think either one of
6:07 pm
those gets close to obstruction of justice. that is what attorney general barr and rod rosenstein, found also. elizabeth: the democratic still subpoena mueller, the question, why done robert mueller get into the use of steel dassier in his probe -- steel dossier in his probe, and use of fisa warrants, the question is, when did robert mueller and his team know there was not enough prosecutable evidence, was this a perjury trap, did they wait long enough to say let's trip up the president? >> robert mueller knew within 100 days of his investigating, starting that there was no russian collusion with team trump, when he didn't ask to renew fisa warrant. he did not ask to extend it, because he knew there was nothing there. that point forward, liz, it was
6:08 pm
all about having this team of rabid, democrat trump haters, i have served with robert mueller he is a decorated marine, an honorable man, i don't recognize this man who spoke today, i don't recognize someone who said in america you have to prove your innocence, if you can't you should have some go through impeachment, that is unrecognizable from the man i served with. elizabeth: robert mueller is a man of distinguishe said russiae will not come on their resumed innocent. then robert mueller said if we have confidence that president did not commit a crime, we would have said so. it seems there is a double standard here. >> liz, i agree, i think that is most troubling part of what
6:09 pm
robert mueller said today and in his report. mark is right. it turns traditional statement by prosecutor their heads. in this country, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty, yet he comes out with a strong statement about how that they didn't find clearly that the president did not commit obstruction of justice. and i don't think that is fair. it is contrary to traditional doj policies. elizabeth: matt, in is push back here. that president trump's candidate trump's team should not have been having links with russia what so ever or not accepted russia help. and also 11 incidents of obstruction of justice. seems that robert mueller left the door open for democrats to step in do impeachment, do you think they will? >> i think that nancy pelosi knows that an impeachment
6:10 pm
process would probably mean that whole democratic majority, would come down to whether or not the american people believe that donald trump colluded with russia. expa i think that american people have long ago made their decision, if you don't like trump -- >> or obstruct. >> right, but you can't obstruct if there is no crime in high opinion. if there is no underlying crime, iamerican people decided long ao he didn't do anything wrong with russia. she knows politic are bad but they still might doe it, in the en nanu nanu hanancy pelosi hase aoc people in her party happy. elizabeth: thank you so much. >> thank you. elizabeth: nancy pelosi not ruling out impeachment, saying she would want democrat to deliver, an iron clad case. this as 2020 democrat, amash
6:11 pm
said impeach, is it because democrats have boxed themselves in? 150 house bills dead on arrival in senate. 17 laws enacted. andy bigs. >> good to be with you. elizabeth: trump and pelosi, not getting anything done, no deal on infrastructure. drug prices. what is going on? >> nothing. you are right, look, the democrats have placed everything in impeachment basket, they can't even agree on what infrastructure should look like, they think it should include soft projects and green energy project that is not what most people think of transportation
6:12 pm
infrastructure, they -- we reached a point where democrats can't agree on one of most basic things that 4 months ago i thought lowest hanging fruit, transportation infrastructure bill. now they will try to continue to distract from their legislative failures or worse, doing nothing. move in to this impeachment basket. that is where we're headed. >> full house is back next week, key group to watch are moderate democrats who won seats in district that trump or romney won. we have to watch where they stand on impeachment. democrats do fear prim -- impeat could blow up their 2020 chanc chances. >> right, have you probably 20 to 30 seats there. that on the bubble either way.
6:13 pm
democrat took those back. i just think that if you start looking at unaffiliated voters, you will find about 2/3 or 70% in some polls, they don't want impeachment, they want is they like the economy, they think it is going well, they think there is a lot of good going othey are tired of it, they thought it was the over when mule arner -- muld there is no collusion, and democrats the continue to ride that pony. elizabeth: andy thank you so much. >> thank you. elizabeth: to that sell-off today markets already were on down side on fight with china this morning. and after all this said and done with robert mueller's statement, stocks fell to session lows, do you at one point below the key psychological level of 25,000, stocks did claw their way back.
6:14 pm
all unfolded as we approached longest economic expansion in american history, gerri willis at new york stock exchange with more. reporter: right, a volatile day for markets dow down 221, s&p down 19, nasdaq down 60, dow taking 1282 point downward move on comment from robert mueller. one trader told me. listen to john. >> that is something that market without not be able to sustain. something like that would take a long time, a lot of time and effort, a lot of attention, i think your attention would be so shifted to that, would get away from basic fundamentals of the economy and market. reporter: john saying that impeachment would be a very big distracttion for markets, traders and investors, they have so much more on the plate.

israel, this never happened before they usually yield to will of the population and form a coalition, netanyahu had to go to another elec election. then loser of elect would decide. elizabeth: how would israel enemy try to use this chaos in their favor? >> well try to say this is not a partner, that far right, they try to identify lieberman as that, that is why netanyahu said he was the person of the left today, but he was allowing left to win this small battle if you will. and the region, it could be iran, hamas activists or other radicals that don't want trump peace proposal to succeed will

6:34 pm
kilometer. putin had grievances toward u.s. policies for a while now, and u.s. defense missile systems. what they believe to be this continuous expansion of our defense architecture our missile deficient architect -- defense architecture in eastern europe. and trump administration put out a report we should have no limits on any ban on our u.s. missile system, that is a nonstarter ar for russia. when putin is out there trying to kind of unravel these u.s. interests and make it so this -- difficult for us to do anything about it now i think he sees this geopolitical climate as time to test us. i think we'll see this boldak from russia -- bold action, russia in particular. elizabeth: thank you so much. >> we're keeping close tabs on

6:42 pm
competitors held more, we bring in john cox. >> great to be here. elizabeth: you have been watching campaigns for some time, remember how in 2012, obama campaign kept joe biden hidden, they did not push him to the forefront. now seems to be seeing same thing, are they trying to avoid negative morning after headlines? >> well, common knowledge he is known to be a human gaffe machine. i think only thing he has going for him is he has name recognition. i can't run on an obama economic record that of 8 years of sub2% growth. right now we have record. record low unemployment.
6:43 pm
is he running on his sub2% record? obama administration which he was a part of let iran and north korea and china walk all over us. they entered into horrible deals, they did not support israel, he does not have a great record to run on. in the past he has made a lot of gaffes that made him well-known with the representation for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. elizabeth: including joe biden, vice president said that recovery was here in 2010 it was not it was flat lining growth. in these you know caucuses and in different states lining iowa, you can -- like iowa you cannot alienate groups, iowa democrat party is next month, they like the grip and greet, joe biden has to campaign. >> well, he is in an enviable
