when 9%, it's best a day since early august. best&p 500 on pace for its four days in more than a month. this is interesting only because sentiment is bullish but becoming less bullish. we see the bullish sentiment really climbing here back in march out of volatility in february, and staying relatively high, but nonetheless declining. the russell 2000 is at an all-time high. the s&p 500 is a few points away from an all-time high. it could suggest it may not stick around. as for movers on the day, let's look at some of the machinery and industrial companies. this may come on the headlines around president trump and the idea he will seek to roll back some of those obama pollution limits. we seek caterpillar, manitowoc day,eere higher on the

12:12 pm
systems.n for voting when you hear these stories about hackers being able to get into voting machines, there isn't a single law set up to protect against that. so we should be able to agree as americans, not as conservatives or liberals or anything else, but as americans that our voting systems and our democracy should be protected. but there hasn't been, by and large from a strong effort made to do that. we need to get that done. david: we already have special councilroller with -- ueller. -- counsel m what can you do when you have people, through the internet, tamper with our elections? >> that's right. first of all, get vladimir putin to turnover those indicted and then be able to prosecute them.
12:13 pm
that will be a problem until we take actions into our own hands and actually pass laws that protect our election systems. besides domestically shoring up our election systems, we need to move forward with a cyber nato, which is the idea that allied countries would agree that we will help defend each other, but also, were necessary, on the internet, take action against russia and other nations that make offensive cyber moves and interfere with the democracies of different countries. : we heard the president is considering -- he said he is considering lifting sanctions on russia. if you were to cooperate with the u.s. on syria and the ukraine. would that be enough? >> i disagree with that. the issues with syria and ukraine are very important issues. buffett united states, there is no issue more important than the sanctity of our elections. as stunned as many were
12:14 pm
when president trump what to helsinki and didn't challenge jputin. he basically said that russia had no role in interfering with our elections. yes, it is a very big concern. be for best before we make beforeions for russia -- we make concessions for russia because they are cooperating with other issues, they need to deal with 2016 and stop them from doing it again. shery: should congress passed legislation that would impose mower -- more sanctions? the senate is discussing it. can the house also do it? >> we absolutely should. myself and mike turner from ohio actually proposed further sanctions on russia. the house should move on the legislation or similar legislation and the senate
12:15 pm
should do the same. david: do you know whether the trump administration favors those sorts of additional sanctions or not if in fact it is proven that russia is trying to interfere with november elections coming up? >> the administration has not gotten behind this legislation. that lives me to believe, obviously, because of that in action, they don't's of it -- they don't support it. administrationmp will become leaders in this fight to protect our elections. so far, the evidence is not there that the president is willing to. david: you serve on the intelligence committee as well as foreign affairs. you are privy to information about what happened to 2016. are there things you know or that we know about 2016 that could help us protect ourselves now in 2018? >> absolutely. some of that is very public information now. i think this microsoft catching these threats to the hudson institute and other conservative think tanks, i think a lot of that is in -- thanks in part to

12:17 pm
i thought people would end up in jail. it's quite possible that paul manafort will. i don't think the indictments are done. shery: the special counsel continues his investigation. he will most likely dump all the best all of his findings to congress, to decide what to do with the findings -- dump all of his findings to congress, to decide what to do with the findings. do think there is the leadership to move this issue forward, depending on what comes out of the investigation? >> that is a great question. that is the six to $4000 question -- the $64,000 question. i hope so. if bob mueller presents a report to congress that says the president was part of a conspiracy or engaged in obstruction of justice that this congress, regardless of whether it is led by republicans or democrats, will take action. of course, there remains to be seen. david: the question in part is when will we see it?
12:18 pm
as a practical matter, the rulese department has about bringing persecution close to an election. do we have any hope for answers before elections? >> i have been saying for a while that bob mueller will operate in old-school ways. after mid-september, you will see the investigation go dark for a while. it will resume either with a report in findings or more prosecutions after the november elections. i think we probably only have a few weeks left at most where this investigation will be operational, so to speak, for this calendar year, at least until the elections are over. shery: a completely separate tyrell -- trial, michael: facing enarges -- michael coh facing charges, what is the sense you get that he's willing
12:19 pm
to cooperate with mr. mueller. one of the coleaders of that interview in the house intelligence committee, when we hen, itned michael coe does not surprise me he is considering a plea agreement. he was fairly cooperative compared to some of the witnesses. he was not as combative. his attorney was fairly ornery. we got into a few exchanges back-and-forth. seemedhael cohen himself like maybe he was transitioning away from just being a protector of donald trump into considering his own fate. david: thank you very much for your time today. that is joaquin castro texas. man whorad smith, the disclosed what microsoft found in those take sites, he will be joining the program. still ahead, the second coming of coal.

clean energy rule, and back to -- back-to-back campaign events in west virginia. president trump has been in office for 19 months. how are these coal states doing now? >> psychologically, they are seeing some really from the , where theistration president is delivering and some of his campaign promises to remove some of the regulatory barriers to using coal and extracting it. but they are not seeing huge market dividends. y that is because the power sector is turning to renewable power. many of the changes the administration is attempting to make cap alter the market reality. -- can't alter the market
12:24 pm
reality. david: explain what the changes are. one is a shift from regulating emissions to regulate inefficiencies, saying get more efficient. the other is delegating the states. how do those for together? jennifer: the trump administration is still planning to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants but any radically different way than the obama administration did, where the obama administration planned this expansive program where states were encouraged to shut down coal plants and use more natural gas. the trump administration proposal today would have the epa laying out in missions controls that they would like to see you -- admissions -- emission controls that they would like to see. they will leave the states the specific plans on how individual
12:25 pm
facilities can reduce pollution. so they will set the benchmark broadly in terms of what is technologically feasible, but give states lots of leeway in deciding what should be done at individual plants. and it may actually differ from plant to plant, even in individual states. david: if this goes through tomorrow, which it won't, but would it make coal cheaper the natural gas? jennifer: that is a tough russian dancer. the administer -- tough question to answer. proposals,of those both of those models rather, uptick, asmodest toh as 4.8% or 5% tied relatively low power prices. in a high price environment, some of those benefits would disappear, even under the administration's forecast. shery: thank you so much for

12:35 pm
we have not seen the president be able to do that. promises that are not being kept that will not be made. so you are saying make west virginia great again.
