8:06 am
what she's going to do about it is unclear. >> as we just heard from mary, donald trump calling for the fbi to recommend criminal charges. where is he getting the most traction right now? >> he's getting traction in the same states. ohio and pennsylvania. but he has a trust issue, as well. yet, the voters there seem so angry, they're willing to vote for him. one democratic mayor told me that trump is saying what people want to hear. and he might get his vote. very interesting out there, paula. >> very interesting dynamic. anger driving a lot of the voters this year. martha, thank you. have great show. i know you have a busy morning. so we're going let you go. martha will have more on the hillary clinton meeting with the fbi. and she'll talk to ohio senator sherrod brown. and former pennsylvania senator rick santorum. this morning, new details on the attack in bangladesh. the chilling 12-hour siege inside an upscale bakery that left 20 hostages dead. three of the victims were

if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. life as a non-smoker is a whole lot of fun. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
