12:32 pm
hillary clinton turned over her e-mail serber to the justice department this week following reports that top secret information crossed that private system during her tenure as secretary of state. the move comes as a new poll finds clinton now trailing vermont senator bernie sanders by seven points in new hampshire. the clinton campaign is urging supporters to stay calm. arguing in a memo this week that "winning campaigns have a plan and stick to it in good times and bad. what are we hoping to learn? >> well, clirn has two dis ikts e-mail headaches here. one is the fbi did take the server. they have not officially said why they took it, but it does
12:33 pm
come on the back of this inspector general finding that volumes of classified information were on it, and some of it top secret. the assumption is that this investigation ultimately goes to whether or not she mishandled the classified data. >> how much classified information was on her e-mail, and whether or not she mishandled it? that's a big question number one. what's the second one? sfwloot security of that computer. the second question goes to the totallity of her e-mail and whether or not she handed everything over to the government. that comes out in several courtrooms. one such judge a couple of weeks ago got tired of the games and demanded that mrs. clinton and two of her aides filed declarations with the court saying they had turned over all work-related emails. her aides have yet to do so. we found that one of her aides was also using her home. now the question is how many more of her employees were use it and where is all that e-mail,
12:34 pm
and i think the bigger question this week, paul, which is now just starting to surface is does all of mrs. clinton's e-mails still exist somewhere because there is now suggestions that it was perhaps transferred off that server on to another device? if so, where is it? >> all right. two cia directors, former cia directors, pleaded guilty to misdemeanors for mishandling classified information and maybe not on even the scale that secretary clinton has. this is -- there's some jeopardy here. that is a very big deal. it speaks to why her numbers are bad when it comes to trust worthiness and so forth, and, again, the bigger political headache for mrs. lynne is going to be to the extent to which
12:35 pm
others will continue to stay on the sidelines or decide to get in other democratic candidates. >> the campaign is basically saying, look, the details don't matter. i'll go away. the public doesn't care. the washington press corps cares or republicans care. the american people really don't care. if the fbi lets this all go, nothing happened. no big deal. is she out of trouble? >> no, but i think i have a contrarian view of this. look, there were -- there's probably classified information on that server. i'm sure that the fbi and the other intelligence services really want to know what was there because most likely the chinese have already hacked in. >> hard to believe they did not. the intelligence services want to see what is on those servers, but i think once they find out, they're going to go away as they always do. they have nol interest in making a public issue out of this. >> are they really, jason, going to say, you know, you need to
12:36 pm
plead guilty to a misdemeanor like this? >> i don't believe they will, but i don't believe that's her biggest concern. >> doing pretty well at the moment. >> until that happens, though, i think clinton believes she can survive this. >> kim, do you agree with that that she can survive this? jason is not saying she will, but he is saying that she can until a democrat begins to make the case on ethics. so far the big truth tellers, bernie sanders, he is not talking this truth. >> so far except for democrats have a wakeup call this week. when you get cracks in the whole of an operation like hillary clinton's, the clintons always want to suggest that they're invincible, but now you have
12:37 pm
this fbi investigation, and democrats are looking around. they see her terrible poll numbers. they see a lot of her liabilities. the fact that she can't necessarily effectively talk about some of what they view as their best themes, income inequality and they're concerned about not just, by the way, the servers and the e-mails, but the foundation questions and ear ethical baggage. the question is as jason states it, does somebody else get in. does barack obama decide to start distancing himself from her? does some grand pubah in the party call her out? which case all of this could tumble down. >> who is going to do this? he would have a terrible time beating her. wee have to organize late. john kerry may get in after he wins the nobel peace prize later this fall for the iran deal. that's the only real plausible threat to her, don't you think? >> absolutely. look, she's trying to reassemble barack obama's new coalition
12:38 pm
base. the new majority. a significant part of that majority is now supporting bernie sanders. a significant amount. are those people going to vote for hillary if she is the nominee or are they going to stay home? they have a really big problem at the moment. >> all right. thank you all. when we come back, the left goes after its own as the democratic party's presidential candidates are confronted by protesters from the group black lives brilliantly practical scientist harriet tuttle's search for a more efficient life concluded with an unorthodox solution. harriet created four more harriets. together, they were a model of efficiency. however, while identical, they had their own interests, and their own retirement plans. each customized with a raymond james financial advisor, allowing them to enjoy life. separately. and together. life well planned. see what a raymond james advisor can do for you.

when something works, people stick with it. more people stick with humana medicare advantage. because we stick with them. humana medicare advantage. the plan people stick with. some candidates are facing an unexpected chal oenkt campaign trail as activists associated with a black lives matter movement have set their sights on the democratic presidential hopefuls. at last month's net roots nation conference in phoenix, both former maryland governor martin o'malley and vermont senator bernie sanders were heckle bid protesters, and last weekend sanders was driven off the stage
12:42 pm
at an event in seattle when activists seized the microphone. members of the group planned a similar demonstration at a clinton campaign stop in new hampshire on tuesday, but were denied access to the event and instead met with clinton in private. >> jason, what's behind these protests? >> well, i think a lot of it starts at the top with president obama and the deterioration of race relations on his watch. poll after poll has shown that race relations have really gone south since he has taken office. i think it has to do with his handle and these high profile incidents, whether it's for trayvon martin. >> what has he done that has radicalized his base supporters against fellow democrats? >> well -- >> these aren't republican candidates. >> i understand, paul, but what he has done is righted up black voters in this country by going around talking about republicans, trying to disenfranchise them with voter id laws. he has joined at the hip with folks like al sharpton. i think this is just really poisoned the environment in
12:43 pm
terms of race relations. the important point to make here is this is really a product of the left which has for decades now has been conditioning blacks to see themselves as victims and blacks have come to guard their victim status fiercely. when they hear someone say all lives matter instead of black lives matter, they feel like that is an encroachment on their victim status. i think that's a lot of what's going on here. >> bernie sanders must look at this and say, wait a minute, i was at the 1963 march on washington. most of you guys weren't even born yet. i have been fighting this fight for a long time. how am i somehow, you know, not adequate when it comes to pushing civil rights? is this at all fair or rationale? >> not particularly. i think i agree with jason. it is a piece of the occupy movement. if you like them, you're going to like wlak black lives matter. let's understand something.
12:44 pm
>> you know what the black youth unemployment rate was last month? 25%. i think the black population, black voters, do have a reason to be upset about what's going on in america right now. a lot of it has to do with the fact that barack obama didn't deliver the hope and change that he had promised he would. what kind of reprecussion will this have going across the next 16 months in the presidential race? >> look, i think that all things equal with this issue rise to the top and be a top tier issue for democratic candidates along side taxes or their income inequality themes or anything else? probably not. here's the thing for democratic candidates and why they're worried. if every one of them, hillary clinton, bernie sanders, martin o'malley, they see their path to
12:45 pm
the white house by reassembling the coalition that barack obama had, and that relied very heavily on having a big black turnout. there's a lot of leverage here. these groups have actually said if you don't do what we want you to do, we're not going to come out and vote for you next year. this is why you see these candidates already rushing. hillary clinton met with those activists. she gave a big speech on criminal justice reform. bernie sanders now has a new justice reform plan out. he hired one of the black activists from this group. martin o'malley has made it one of the top themes of his campaign because every one of them wants to make sure that they get those votes. >> okay. jason, what message does this send to the larger electorate when voters who may not be core democrats look at this debate? >> i think -- i think what it says to me is that the left for all of their record, have no interest in truly being post-racial. their identity politics depend on divvying us up by race and gender and so forth and then
12:46 pm
making those race specific appeals. i think that their agenda is to keep race front and center in all of our national conversations, whether or not it's relevant. we're seeing what the product of that is. >> jason, thank you. when we come back, white house allies go on the attack as senator chuck schumer comes out against the administration's iran deal, but has criticism of the new york democrat and others opposing the agreement gone too opposing the agreement gone too ♪ when you're living with diabetes, steady is exciting. only glucerna has carbsteady, clinically proven to help minimize blood sugar spikes. so you stay steady ahead.

12:48 pm
12:49 pm
the alternative is not war. i would be very much opposed to war. it is to go back to the bargaining table and come to a better agreement. >> when i hear a senator or a
12:50 pm
congressman stand up and say, well, we should get a better deal, let's stop and look at negotiate and go get a better deal, that is not going to happen. there isn't a "better deal" to be gotten. >> new york senator chuck schumer and secretary of sat john kerry schumer, of course, is the highest ranking to break with the administration announcing he'll oppose the deal when it comes up for a vote in september in oppose the vote when it comes up for a vote in september. mary, how significant is it that schumer has broken with the administration on this in. >> it's very significant. it sets him up as ann independent aithinker. it is a bad deal. let's bert hans about it. even supporters say it's a bad
12:51 pm
deal. >> how many democrats can he bring with him? there's a report in politico saying n he's working the phone not to persuade the democrats but to say i'm not going to twist your arm on this, vote how you juan. >> that'ss the big disappointment. and ha there are a lot of democrats who are on the fence, manchin in west virginia, richard blumenthal inec connecticut. but if schumer is not working the phones, what that says is he's looking more at the polls in his locale constituency. poll said that jewish new yorkers oppose this deal 53% to 33%. it's less of a vote of conscience and more of a vote of politics. >> quite a lot of democrats
12:52 pm
pushing back on schumer this week as well. the hollywood, producer director is pushing back. how much of a blow back is schumer getting? >> he's getting a lot. it's very interesting. ernest atalked him, former white house official d david viper ha attacked dhim. lyndon johnson was the master of handling this sort of thing and he would take care of these problems in private. why is the obama white house going q public in attacking schumer. i don't understand. he probably is going to be the nextxt minority leader. >> i wouldn't be surprised if some of the democrat senators into take barack obama consideration when they vote for a leader. >> barack obama is a lake duck. chum schumer is probably going to be the next minority leader. do you think any senators want to be on his bad side in 2016?
12:53 pm
if they are, he'll cast them in a hole. >> he did that in the speech equating them with the revolutionary guard corps. that is before senator schumer came out against the deal. what's the strategy behind that? >> this is what he does. he's incapable of believing that people disagree >> is it snart many. >> in this case it is silly because chuck schumer isk a whoe lot smarter than the white house. this i is why chuck schumer -- came out saying he was going to oppose the deal but calling automatic of his colleagues sayingng iemg not going to whip against it. as a result he has the senators coming out saying we respect senator schumer for having his own mind.
12:54 pm
he shined everybody up and also going on the record saying he's opposed to the deal and that's thero way he's getting through e tough spot. israeli political action committee has gone a big way against this and the white house pushed back almost with implications that somehow maybe this group is more loyal to israel than it is to the united states.sr that's pretty rough stuff. >> it's almost anti-semantic, talking about money and lobbyine and foreign interest. i think what's notable here and why the president is taking this very hard line -- he didn't name any pact but it was clear who he was referring to. the president and his allies who support this deal are not addressing the sincere concern that senator schumer and others have laid out about what this agreement really is. i think that's another reason why you see thehe partisani attacks. they haveck a hard time answeri these questions. >> we havet, to y take one more break. when we come back, hits and misses of the week.
12:55 pm

time now for hits and misses of the week. kim, first to you. >> if a company went out to colorado and poked a hole in a gold mine and sent millions of gallons of toxin flurry down rivers and then didn't tell anyone about it and under estimated how bad it was, executives would be going to jail. instead this is the epa. so administrator gina mccarthey still has her job and no bureaucrats are being held accountable. americans hate it when the government is held to a different standard than average citizens. i'm just saying this might be a good theme for some presidential candidates out there. >> thanks. mary? >> i'm giving a big miss to secretary of state john kerry
12:59 pm
who went to due ba this week to raise the cuban flag at the recently reopened u.s. embassy there. dissidents were not invited on the lame excuse that this was a government-to-gof affair. you can chalk this up for an obama administration prep to easy photo ops. >> dan. >> this is a miss, i think, for the social platform twitter who allows the people to put out tweets limited to 120 characters. that's about 25 words. >> you're an expert. >> i'm an expert in receiving them. twitter announced this week that now people the speak directly to each other privately in 10,000 character tweets. that's about 2,000 words. now some of those tweets probably should be limited to 25 words but get into a night ware of 2000-word exchanges with somebody on twitter. i can't imagine. >> if you have your own hit or miss, tweet it to us.
1:00 pm
