at i'm bob massi. i'll see you next week. [ woman vocalizing ]
9:31 am
we're going to get you the forecast and the rest of your headlines coming up at the top of the hour. welcome to the journal editorial report. new trouble for hillary clinton this week. a scathing report by the state
9:32 am
department inspector general conclude that is the likely democratic nominee. and by failing to turn over those e-mails pfr leaving government service. the report revealed that clinton never saw it and did not receive permission for her off grid server and repeatedly ignored security concern ed raised by others. mrs. clinton addressed the report thursday in las vegas. >> it's a report is is consistent with what i have been saying, that the use of personal e-mail was a practice by other secretaries of state. and the rules were not clarified until after i had left and as i said many time, if i could do it over again, i would have done it differently. >> joining the panel this week, kim straussel, james freeman and editorial board member, joe rego. so, kim, former secretary of state says report merely
9:33 am
corroborated all that she has been say iing all along. is that true? >> it's the exact opposite, paul. the importance of this report, it demolishes the two central claims that she has made since the beginning of this scandal and the first claim was that this was entirely allowable. the report in fact comes out and says that flat out says that she violated federal recordkeeping rules. that were very clear when she was in office and her other claim was that this was okay because it was all secure. the e-mail was fine. nothing bad happened. what we also find out in this report was that she was warned by many people in the state department involved in ss not a to do and she did it any way. >> and she was warned, her staff was warned about the risk from hacker, explicit risks from hackers. the secretary of state took that warning and sent it out urn her signature to all diplomatic posts and then she ignored that
9:34 am
advice in ore own case. >> yeah and i think this gets to the most possibly damaging and problem of this report for her. which this question of the fbi investigation, which is obviously looking at whether or not she was willfully negligent in the handling of classified material and i think in that regard, one of the most important aspects of this report is a line that says she did not seek permission and had she sought it, she would not have been given it because of the security concerns. >> and joe, that gets to this question of intent. which is central to the comey investigation, did she know what she was doing, did she know she was violating rules. >> there was an exchange where one of her aides tells her, this is a problem, she recollects no, i don't want to do anything. so, in her own words, in an e-mail exchange that was not turned over, she's concededing
9:35 am
the question of intent. >> she didn't meet with the ig. he refused to do it. that's strange behavior for a former secretary of state who wants to be president, in that roll, have to hold the rest of the government accountable and you're not cooperating with an investigation? >> yeah, this is really what the clintons have been doing for decades is somehow managing to rewrite political rules for themselves. can you imagine anyone else getting away with the idea that i'm seeking a promotion, i'm running for president while i'm refusing to cooperate with the federal investigation into my conduct in public office. it's a threshold question. kind of amazing that she goes on. but getting back to this question what we now have is we know she lied when she said this was done for conveniencconvenie. given that e-mail exchange, showing this was to prevent
9:36 am
disclosure. i think the question now for mr. comey at the fbi, is what more does he need to bring a criminal case for at least mishandling classified information. >> so, you think this is a road map for him in essence. this report is. >> just only on what's been disclosed now publicly. i imagine he's got more than hasn't been disclosed, but we see the intent with this report. the deceptions. and we already know numerous classified e-mails on the server, despite what she had said earlier. i don't what else he would need to bring a case. sfwl joe, what about the response from secretary clinton, well, colin powell did it, everybody else did it. nothing major different here. >> we know colin powell had a personal e-mail. which he used for personal business. he also had an official e-mail he used for official business. >> and it was pretty limited. >> limited. he didn't set up his own private
9:37 am
server. just a different era where the threats of cybersecurity were far less sophisticated than they are today. >> what's the larger political impact of this among democrats? still got the california primary coming up. this going to hurt her among democrats? >> all it does is is backs up the idea that she is untrut worthy. and you know, this has been her biggest problem all along in this election, those numbers and polls saying americans don't believe what she has to say. now, you've got a report in which the ig demolishes again everything she's done over the last year and she's till out claiming and spinning it is something other than it is. >> all right. when we come back, hillary clinton and donald trump sharpen their attacks as they look ahead to the general election. trump is is rehashing the clinton scandals of the 1990s while hillary is focusing on her rival's record as a business man, so, will either strategy work? i thought i married an italian. my lineage was the vecchios and zuccolis. through ancestry, through dna i found out that i was only 16% italian.
9:38 am
he was 34% eastern european. so i went onto ancestry, soon learned that one of our ancestors we thought was italian was eastern european. this is my ancestor who i didn't know about. he looks a little bit like me, yes. ancestry has many paths to discovering your story. get started for free at if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla, apremilast. otezla is not an injection, or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. some people who took otezla saw 75% clearer skin after 4 months. and otezla's prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop.
9:39 am
some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your dermatologist about otezla today. otezla. show more of you. otezla. show more of you. it takes a lot of work... but i really love it.s. i'm on the move all day long... and sometimes, i just don't eat the way i should.

9:41 am
clinton look ahead to the general election, the lines o attack are beginning to emerge with the republican nominee intent on reminding voters o the clinton scandals of the 990s. the trump campaign released an ins gram ad focus ong the sexual assault allegations tweeting is hillary really protecting women? his camp has also reportedly asked the rnc to work up information on white water real estate scandal. we're back with kim, dan and bill also joined the panel. so, dan, you were there. chronicling this in the 1990s. the pardon, travel gate, the rest of it. is this really relevant to the current moment? >> it is relevant in the sense this is big time politics. the it's hardball politics and donald trump knows that the clinton camp is doing opposition
9:42 am
research on him. he's got a past. it's been documented in the new york tabloids over the years with women and his business relationships and what donald trump is is engaging in here is is mutual destruction. you want to escalate, i'm going to escalate, too. and he's firing the first sound and telling them don't go there about my past. >> bill, the question, the clintons lpt to suggestion to people, old news. who cares. you knew that. it was all litigated before. i was impeached sh didn't work then. elected me a senator after this. hillary clinton. is it really relevant? >> yes, it is because it's not past. it's the present. the same hillary clinton that parlayed thousand dollars into futures, the same hillary ran on television to support her husband's lie about jennifer flowers. the same hillary clinton involved in these white water scandals. this is the same hillary clinton under investigation by the fbi today and who was secretary of
9:43 am
state allowed her husband to rake in millions of dollars from people overseas. this is a woman who never tells the truth when a liable will serve her purposes equally well. >> kim, particularly the women response. he's raised bill clinton's women issues. all the accusations against him. why is he doing that? >> i think this is smart because for years now, democrats have been using this war on women theme against republicans. they say that women don't, that republicans don't care about women. they put them on the defensive and republicans have never put a good answer to this. go back and remember the best mitt romney could do is to talk about how he had delivered to him binders full of women. what trump is say iing is you wt to talk about women, fine, let's talk about bill. and then going through some of this behavior and linking hillary to it.
9:44 am
it is not necessarily answering the charges against himself, pu he's saying that the clintons do not have a leg to stand on in making those accusations and hoping to make it uncomfortable enough that they stop. >> gave an energy speech this week. pretty good policy. i bet you can't find five people whon what happened because nobody's reporting it. >> donald trump has been rising in the polls by ignoring all of us. he beat 16 pretty professional people. >> this is the guy who wants, he gives a speech, he's the one who -- >> i think what he's doing further to what kim says, clearly, mrs. clinton was going to run the war on women theme against him. it's hard for traditional republicans and he's not a mo l moralist. he's not a rick santorum. he's bill clinton without the really bad allegations of exposure and so forth against him. he's just taking the fight away
9:45 am
from him. he's making hillary live by her own code. >> in some weird way, he's making them fight on policy. >> how so? >> because he's saying don't go into all this personal stuff because i will overwhelm you with mud. let's talk about i want to talk about, bidding a wall against mexico. talk about whether trade is doing anything good for the united states or his energy policy or his tax policy. problem is is, trump himself seems to step on his own message by getting personal. >> would it be better if he linked that past behavior to the clinton foundation and to the e-mail scandal so you can make it look contemporary? it's not just about the 1990s. this is how they governed in between time in office and when she was in office and this is what they will take to the white house. that kind of a system attic case trump doesn't make. he goes about the e-mail scandal. not good. why can't he make a more sophisticated case? >> he's going to have to and get into details like the clinton
9:46 am
foundation. it's a question of presidential character. that was our complaint about clinton back then. the question is can donald trump make that argument? >> dan, thank you. when we come back, hillary clinton developing her own attack strategy as she looks ahead to a november race against donald trump. just how big a july nerability is "the new yorker's" record as a business man.
9:47 am
if you're taking multiple medications, does your mouth often feel dry? a dry mouth can be a side effect of many medications. but it can also lead to tooth decay and bad breath. that's why there's biotene, available as an oral rinse, toothpaste, spray or gel. biotene can provide soothing relief and it helps keep your mouth healthy too. remember, while your medication is doing you good, a dry mouth isn't. biotene, for people who suffer from a dry mouth.
9:48 am
9:49 am
he could bankrupt america like he's bankrupt ed his companies. i meerngs ask yourselves. how can anybody lose money running a casino, really. he actually said he was hoping for the crash that caused hard
9:50 am
working families in california and across america. to lose their homes. all because he thought he could take advantage of it to make some money for himself. >> hillary clinton this week testing out her own attack strategy against donald trump going after the new yorker's record as a business man. we're back with james, dan and joe. james, you've looked into donald trump's business record. how vulnerable is it politically? >> i don't think he's vul n vulnerable, especially on the issues she's raising. atlantic's city's a mess. >> that's not a vulnerability? >> he's got some big failures. he's got you can successes. another one in new york and other places in the world.
9:51 am
it's a mixed record and the bankruptcies are a bad blot on that record. and atlantic city, but it's all about the comparison, which is the theme of this whole race. you look at the clintons and they've amassed this enormous pile of wealth and there's not an honest nickel in the pile. it's all basically leverages government connections and shady, overseas deals. >> this strategy is a lot like the democrats tried against mitt romney. they made bane capital, almost put it on the ballot in 2012 and they're going to try to put donald trump's businesses on the ballot. you think that has a better chance of working than james does? >> i think it might have a good chance of working. when she talks about him bankruptinging the country, it has a certain resonance.
9:52 am
trump said i'm going to pay down the u.s. debt by convincing u.s. creditors the take a haircut on treasury bonds, so it raises real issues of how he would manage the feds. >> let's get donald trump's response. >> goes and donald trump is a terrible person and he wanted to buy housing when it was at a low point. who the hell doesn't? he went bankrupt with his casino company. i made so much in atlantic city, folk, but i'm a business guy. like all of the other big shots, we all use the laws. >> what do you make of that one? >> that's trump sh isn't it? mitt romney, bane capital personified a certain idea, which was that wall street and companies like bane were shafting the little xwi. donald trump is trump. there's just trump and his businesses. one guy. the one guy operating at the
9:53 am
level of media personality stands there and just pounding back, so i think this innuendo that hillary's filtering out is going to have a tough time. >> trump is ahead by about ten points in the polling. head to head because on economics. that's why i think clinton is going to undermine his record on the economy. just like the bush campaign tried to understood mine john kerry's war record. when you make something central, it becomes a target. >> and she can try to do that, but that is not the way to do it. to accuse him of wanting to buy low and sell high. two years ago, basically, we heard the same thing about warren buffett, who told timothy geithner after the bailouts of the banks had started in 2008, i wish you hadn't done that because when the prices went down, i would have been first in
9:54 am
line to buy. >> they try to buy assets when they're cheap. you don't let anything keep you sidelined.

because you can't beat zero heartburn! i take prilosec otc each morning for my frequent heartburn ahhh the sweet taste of victory! prilosec otc. one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. time for our hits and misses of the week. >> bernie sanders just won a battle to have five of his people put on the democratic party's national platform writing committee and what a crew it is, paul. among the people bernie has chosen to author the party's official positions this summer are the infamous professor and social justice activist cornel west, bill mckibbon, an extremist environmentalist who wants to stop all oil and gas drilling and james zogby, an anti-israel palestinian rights activist. they say honesty is the best policy. if that's the case i got to give
9:59 am
bernie a hit for being totally up front about the agenda he wants on his party and the nation. >> last halloween at yale an e-mail was sent out questioning a university notice warning students against culturally unaware costumes. this e-mail was followed by protests followed by the president defending free speech followed by a capitulation. how do we know it's capitulation? because this week the husband and wife resigned. >> this is a hit to the american battle monuments commission founded in 1924. it maintains american cemeteries in 16 foreign countries. this is memorial day, a holiday, but a rather solemn holiday and we are glad this commission is out there honoring the people who sacrificed so much for the american people. >> have you ever seen the cemeteries overseas? they do a brilliant job of maintaining them. as good as arlington cemetery. if you have your own hit or miss, tweet it to us.
