6:01 am
self driving cars, driver using autopilot in a tesla model s. not only big for travel but the big friendly giant among movies hitting theaters, a preview of the weekend's top movies. so much for the selloff in the weeks of the british vote to leave the european union. the tao and the s&p 500 have recovered nearly all the losses from that vote. look at the action this morning, futures in the us point to a slightly lower open off one/4%, futures down 39 points. in europe we are watching markets trade in positive territory although mixed trading we have seen for most of the session. the cac quarante in france, the for the in london up 3/10 of 1%. markets are higher and the hang seng closed for trading today. green arrows across the board.
6:02 am
all of that coming up and there she is, foxbusiness network's dagan mcdowell is here, professor of business and economics and radio talkshow host daniel webb. this is going to be good stuff. good to have you here. >> you see richard and david next to each other. >> come on. bless his heart. in any fight i am winning. sandra: there might be fireworks onset ahead of the fourth of july. a lot coming up. strategic analyst lieutenant colonel ralph peters will be here, president of the american federation of teachers, donald trump supporter and former massachusetts senator scott brown. former president of shell oil john hoffmeister will join us and former atlanta braves outfielder and first baseman dale murphy. you do not want to miss the all-star lineup coming up.
6:03 am
on the campaign trail in the wake of the terror attacks, donald trump continues to associate the rise of isis with his rival, hillary clinton. take a listen. >> i watched hillary clinton for years and years, it is the same thing, we are going to get along with our allies, work with our allies, nice and easy, nothing is going to happen and don't forget this whole isis thing started during her term. sandra: hillary clinton hits the trail with president obama in north carolina as well as vice president joe biden in pennsylvania. bernie sanders will endorse clinton. let's bring in a radio talkshow host, richard fowler and mercedes slap, republican strategist and fox news contributor. what do you make of donald trump continuing to blame hillary clinton for the rise of isis?
6:04 am
>> clinton is going to take the good and be associated with the bad of obama's administration. what we have seen under president obama is the fact that they have not been able to contain isis. it was clear when cia director john brennan spoke in congress during his testimony that they have not been able to control the growth and reduce the terrorist capabilities. while they have made some progress it is still not the significant progress -- sandra: john brennan said we made progress but there is a long way to go. when you look at the polling, hillary clinton in a head to head matchup leading donald trump by 6 points, 44% for hillary clinton, 38% for donald trump, some new polling shows he is in the lead. we have a long way until november but what is going on?
6:05 am
>> conventions make campaigns. that is when the national campaign cycle starts. the republican convention, they said mike tyson will be one of the people. >> the political circus is what is going on in this entire climate. let's stick with the facts. it will be tough. sandra: everybody is talking about this this morning, the fallout from president bill clinton and attorney general loretta lynch meeting on that tarmac. prominent democrats criticizing the optics of this meeting creating a headache for the clinton campaign. what impact does this have on trust that hillary clinton clearly is trying to deal with. she addressed them this week but unbelievable. >> the meeting is problematic. it is like a bad move.
6:06 am
>> he is leading the investigation on hillary clinton and had a private meeting with her husband. >> i will say i have the utmost confidence in loretta lynch, she is a great great attorney general and we can have confidence in this investigation with a head of the fbi comey to get it taken care of. sandra: do you have that confidence? >> i don't. most americans, i don't know her, you can say that. >> you should trust me. >> more than problematic. >> it is problematic. i think the attorney general understands her job and her role and having a conversation with somebody whose spouse is involved in an investigation -- sandra: former president bill clinton should have thought this isn't the best thing to do let alone loretta lynch this is a the wrong thing to do? >> boggles the mind. she was on her jet.
6:07 am
why wasn't she flying commercial? she was on her jet. it looked, had to have been -- i want to point out some actual news that came out that makes it look even worse. the department of justice filed a motion in federal court late on wednesday seeking a 27 month delay, 27 months in producing correspondence between hillary clinton's four top aides when she was secretary of state and officials with the clinton foundation and holdings, public relations firm closely allied with bill clinton for 27 month meaning this communication will not be produced until october 2018. when you start layering on things that look bad this makes the meeting between -- sandra: it doesn't look good. she is still leading in the latest fox news poll so it is not hurting her that badly.
6:08 am
>> hillary clinton is not leading enough. she has a very well oiled campaign machinery, spending millions of dollars in ads. her campaign is more robust than we have seen with donald trump who is putting his campaign together now as we speak. she should be doing better in the polls but because of the high negativity, the fact that when you look at the polls in terms of corruption and honesty, those are two qualities that keep hunting her and when you have these meetings between the attorney general and her husband it brings into question the fact of do they play by a different set of rules? that is the perception that comes out from the clintons and it is a big problem. sandra: she is hitting the campaign trail with the president next tuesday and joe biden later in the week. >> we don't have to worry about reporters getting answers from hillary clinton because she
6:09 am
doesn't answer questions. let's go with the optics issue. i am in radio so i get to talk. this doesn't happen by accident. i watched the interview with the reporter who got two independent sources and found out about this. two planes don't land, they have flight plans. i'm not into conspiracy. i don't know what they said, i don't care what they said. imagine the lead prosecutor met with bernie madoff so they could have dinner or talk for 30 minutes before they went -- sandra: is that a fair comparison? >> not a fair comparison at all. >> i said it is problematic. >> wait a minute. >> she is that -- >> not that smart to actually avoid a meeting -- >> i just said the meeting was
6:10 am
problematic. that being said, let me talk about the case, i don't care -- sandra: don't know what they did talk about. >> their grandchildren, travels. to mercedes's point the national poll, look at the state-by-state poll the reasons article in the wall street journal talks about what is happening. >> there is -- >> talk about the polls. >> the polls. >> 6:00 in the morning. >> i know you -- >> find something else to talk about but the truth is donald trump is toxic, problematic. >> let me close with florida, ohio, pennsylvania. >> they are neck and neck. >> you should trust bill clinton because he never lied under oath. he was impeached for lying under oath. trust donald trump. >> richard fowler, mercedes, thank you.
6:11 am
coming up outrage over the detention of us sailors in iran, shocking details on reports of the incident that they sailors were at all. historic weekend in cuba, first us operated hotel set to open. more on that after the break. i'm mary ellen, and i quit smoking with chantix. i have smoked for 30 years and by taking chantix, i was able to quit in 3 months and that was amazing. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it absolutely reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. 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.
6:12 am
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. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. i didn't even know thatg life could be any better than it was. education for me has been a way to get away from the agony of what was normal life. i want to be able to impact a community. not just look back on where i came from but to reach back to where i came from and pull some people up with me. my name is david, and i am your dividend.
6:13 am
6:14 am
maria: new development on the deadly terror attack honest and 's airport earlier this week, cheryl casone he has more on that story and top headlines. cheryl: the death toll in the aftermath of the attack has risen to 44, with 238 wounded. we have new information on the islamic terrorists responsible for the bombing. turkish officials say they were from his pakistan, and russia and were part of a 7 person cell which entered turkey in late may. the investigation is still ongoing with more arrests possible, more detailed as they come in with the us hotel opened its doors in cuba for the first time in 60 years. the four point savanna is open for business. the hotel has 186 rooms,
6:15 am
full-service restaurant and a swimming pool. sad news to bring you, the first ever fatal car accident involving a self driving car. joshua brown of canton, ohio was killed when his tesla model s trashed into a tractor-trailer on a florida highway. the car's autopilot failed to recognize the white side of the tractor-trailer against the brightly lit sky. the break in the car was not applied. this is a major blow to many automakers going with this driverless car technology in particular tesla. sandra: shares are down 3% in premarket session. a huge setback for the industry? >> it is a big setback. the driver of the tractor-trailer said in an interview the man who was killed, the driver, he thinks he was watching a movie at the time of the crash. he posted videos on the internet on youtube of him using the
6:16 am
autopilot function before. it raises the issue of what is the autopilot for? it is to be used at a high rate of speed on an open highway, in traffic, stop and go traffic where the car isn't a danger to you or others on the road it is perfectly acceptable but to use it in this fashion raises the issue, car companies and all the driverless technology being developed are asking to be regulated. sandra: for people who are skeptical of this this story doesn't help. >> the simple thing is why i we trying to account for all the factors that are involved, the physics in a moving vehicle and other vehicles with other people, with technology, i love technology. i love advancement, i love safety built into this but you cannot eliminate other factors you don't control. driverless technology is a farce that should never be allowed on any road or highway. >> i think there is an opportunity, we have to go through this, an accident is going to happen.
6:17 am
>> every car needs to be on the same plane, other people making decisions, the driverless car cannot account for every possible -- >> humans can't either. >> we have a better chance to react. >> takada coming under fire, regulators telling honda and acura owners to replace their airbags immediately, details on that warning just ahead. the uk exit aftermath a thing of the past? one investor seems to be leaving the uncertainty behind, buying stocks. what it means for your money and where this is going next. this man creates software, used by this bank,
6:18 am

6:21 am
>> futures point to a lower open but as of yesterday's close us markets covered all their losses in the big selloff following the british referendum, the tao coming back 91% and the s&p 500 recovering 81% as a new usa today poll shows 58% of americans believe the british referendum to leave the eu is a sign of dissatisfaction and anger in other nations including the us. >> this poll seems to be saying the obvious. clearly people in the uk and the us feel we live in a two tiered society.
6:22 am
the loretta lynch story to me epitomizes this. if you're a political elite you have access to people like loretta lynch, you happen to meet her at the airport and talk about an issue going on in your life and get special access. americans are right to feel this way and it is motivating a lot of what you are seeing. i don't like that we are always calling people advocating for change angry. it is a smear. >> this is and thoughtful. it is all emotional. that is the wrong way to fray -- >> you might use the words enough a big once in reference to a few people but again when people feel disconnected and dissatisfied and a little bit poed they think you are talking about them. there is a danger of alienating a giant swath of this country. >> an excellent point. the word the enough open is used
6:23 am
throughout brexit. the people who voted for brexit is enough of? are there really 17 millions enough open in great britain? denmark, holland, talking about german exit, sweden has not filed key paperwork, all these people, to your point, about really what is going on. >> back to the markets, we are talking about the fact we almost recouped all those losses following the vote. does it seem investors are putting this behind them? they are not afraid of the future? >> people are waking up to the reality that the uk can do this, independent sovereign nations can trade with each other and remain economically integrated. a strong economy, high rates of entrepreneurship, no reason we can't -- >> let me inject this little fact, we pulled out the trustee stock trader's almanac, the
6:24 am
first trading day of july, this is the most bullish trading day of the year historically for trading over the last 21 years, the s&p 500 has advanced 86% of the time on the first trading day with 1/2%. does this mean anything to you? >> volatility has backed off lately. i don't think that will continue. you will see volatility. we need both leaders in the uk and the eu and president obama indicating we want strong economic integration. president obama has been reluctant to say we want to make sure the uk stays tied economically. sandra: this is the market volatility index. 26. it is down 40% for the week as
6:25 am
of thursday's close before the vote. dagen: assigned there is uncertainty out there if you look at the 10 year yield it is still below, it is still near multi-year lows and if you look at sovereign debt around the world you have negative yield in many countries which is a sign quite frankly of global backdrop that looks pretty lousy. and a lot of uncertainty, boris johnson won't be the leader of the conservative party. he won't be the prime minister. and you throw in our election, i don't know how you place a lot of bets and cash. >> the catastrophe predictions from people like george soros are off, a certain upside we can get but you need political leadership on both sides of the pond saying we want strong economic ties and president obama needs to step up.
6:26 am
sandra: airports in transit hubs tightening security this holiday weekend. what you need to know before you hit the road or head to the airport and if you are driving you might see good news at the pump, low prices might mean high traffic. more on that after the break.

6:29 am
6:30 am
holiday weekend big for travel and the box office. we have a preview of the weekend's top movies. and a slightly lower, trending higher for most of the session. the slight loss. markets are higher and the hang seng closed for trading. markets mostly hire across the board. acts of terror growing in the wake of the attack in turkey, jay johnson lays out measures in place for the holiday weekend. >> the american public should expect to see this july 4th
6:31 am
weekend and enhanced security presence at airports, training stations and other transit centers across the country by tsa and local law enforcement and security personnel. sandra: groups that bring in large groups of people, pouring billions into their own preparedness efforts, joining us is strategic analyst lieutenant colonel ralph peters, the author of the new book the damned of petersburg. >> do i see dagan mcdowell here? dagen: when i tell people where i am from if you say southside that hits my heart. that is somebody who knows where i come from. >> into a big holiday weekend security measures stepped up. what do you make of our efforts in response to the most recent
6:32 am
attack? >> don't live in fear. the odds are on your side statistically. we must go forward and live our lives. it is easy to be caught up in hysteria. domestically, law enforcement has done an astonishingly we have evidence these soft targets
6:33 am
6:34 am
6:35 am
6:36 am
after particularly the recent terror attacks. we need to put it in perspective. might be an inconvenience but the inconvenience is there for a reason. >> as thankless the job is you can have a. there is a fundamental issue. i don't want the country to be on a war footing. we shouldn't permit that. you just alluded to we can't win playing defense. we are not remotely doing all we could to take the war to the terrorists. we can't use word like jihadi or islamist terrorism. if you cannot name the enemy how
6:37 am
can you defeat him? >> the investigation report found poor leadership, judgment, and lack of toughness led to the detention of 10 us sailors by iran, to train our troops? >> welcome to obama's military. the military purpose is to kill america's enemies. everything else is nice to do but it is to kill america's enemies but under the obama administration it has become a tool of social engineering. any the want to use because the president says do it. i think sailors in the gulf obviously did not have code of conduct training. when captured, the rank, service number, date of birth, that is it. they were collaborating with the
6:38 am
enemy. that is the atmosphere this president has created within our military and it is dangerous. >> we are going to leave it on that note. thank you for weighing in, colonel ralph peters, good to have you. changes in the pipeline, stepping down as chairman but apple ceo tim cook is getting a new role. more on that later. payne on the road. have you noticed it? there could be a trend as you go to the fourth of july get away, are you driving or flying?

chris, good morning to both of you -- >> good morning. >> chris i feel like i as many start with you first first what do i mak-- what do you mak of vice president short list for donald trump. >> first thing would i do be careful with it, the -- i think the reality for this campaign is that it is a very fluid campaign, and as we have seen capable of changing hours relative about quickly these are i am sure trial balloons in the sense that what would it be like if i wouldn't put anything in bank as red lights to trump campaign until the week before convention i think another week before this is ripe. >> senator brown what are we looking at first trump's campaign we saw the latest fox news polling, that in a head-to-head match up shows hillary rodham clinton leading donald trump campaigning in colorado, where is he what is the state of his campaign, in your eyes? first of all,, happy 4th of july weekend to you all of our
7:03 am
viewers -- hope everyone has a safe weekend with regarded to the previous analysis i think right i wouldn't put too much stock in it great guys a host of other people those people have been vetted many already accepted, and i know one of the prerequisites that donald wants somebody still in office, so that may make newt not one of those people all good people about onlies going to needed somebody can work with him do things he may not have interest in state of the campaign is growing, it is certainly, on track, splibd moving forward, distinctions in comparisons, between donald trump and hillary clinton, you heard him talking about trade, terrorism, they see are things that are very, very important, to the average american, especially the middle class working american. >>. sandra: chris i want to get you in here as well obviously a vepment,s r t fb invtigaon of hilry clton,ut loretta l is -- isxpected to announce today that she is going to accept the fbi recommendations
7:04 am
in the clinton e-mail inquirey. >> one of the he aims all along for clintons and whole of the obama administration has been to avoid a special prosecutor outside counsel because as bill clinton who is getting hillary deepening into t land deal allegedly corrupt land deal in arkansas sometimes you wented end up with white house interns and dresses it can get out of hand quickly what they would like to do keep this this at justice department lynch trying to hold line made a mistake talking to bill clinton one-on-one trying to hold line say it is okay. i will do whatever the fbi says i am not sure it is going to be enough. >> david weapon is here wants to jump. chris one of the big things when it comes to recommendation of james col mi is if lynch doesn't prosecute there will did he political
7:05 am
damage do you think that could still sink the clinton campaign. >> if it happens? >> if hillary clinton is charged with a crime, or if there is a recommendation from the fbi, that she be charged with a crime, it is this -- bear with me for a second it is probably bad news, for donald trump. in the sense, it still is early enough, it is still early enough for democrats to do a switch out and joe biden standing over there, waiting to go. so what you probably want if you are donald trump is for hillary clinton not to be charged but you want the stink on it as bad as possible that everybody thinks a coverup that that could work that way. >> i am going to jump in chris, if you stay with us we've got fox news junior judicial analyst andrew napolitano judge and true napolitano on phone judge are you there? on the phone: yes, i am sandra. reaking newswant to get your again we are expected to get the announcement today a formal announcement that loretta lynch is going to
7:06 am
accept the fbi recommendations in this clinic e-mail inquiry. >> take very bad news for clinton legally i don't know how it plays out politically but legally, fbi has invested thousands and thousands of person hours in this investigation. evidence clearly sufficient to indict to convick so the removal of the -- the political people from this, entire process is bad news for mrs. clinton, and the odds of indictment have increased dramatically in the past 24 hours. >> judge what did you make all of this coming after private meeting that took place this week set a furor this private meeting between, lynch and former president bill clinton?
7:07 am
that obviously has been a huge point to be made. on the phone: the attorney general had a very bad week i mean very bad two weeks starting off by publicly editing reredacting fbi reports creates a false comefgs about mass murder in orlando, then said, the best way to -- he are as is tiresistr through love 100 people investigating, it creates an parents of impropriety they microwave talked about golf and grandchildren, as the attorney general claims, but what she should the -- investigating should sit down and talk with spouse of a drug cartel chieftain answer no, she has duty to avoid the appearance of impropriety. sandra: judge. on the phone: i think.
7:08 am
sandra: sorry to -- >> it is safe to say the appearance of the unless of the investigation has gone been compromised, this is just a bonehead move we know what bill is like very engaging walk on to her plane as she says he did quite frankly she should have walked off the plane or should have said, to the fbi agents that guard her i don't care who he is you can't come in and talk to me if he wants to say anything say in it public or the press this is actual a good result for justice, because, candidly, i have more faith in the team of fbagents heir than policy aappointees in justice department to do right thing. >> judge thank you for jumping on the phone on breaking news for us good to have you sir.
7:09 am
on the phone: of course. >> chris i want to bring back in here fox news polling showing hillary clinton pulled ahead over donald trump, what do you make of the state of donald trump's campaign right now? >> well -- look, about we have not seen for a long time somebody do what trump since bob dole in 96 may be stands to reason people around his campaign were part of that effort a candidate says i am intentionally waiting for a blitz after the convention donald trump says we have not begun this is pregame going to conditions going to roar out with intense contradicts wisdom says you define yourself and rival in months prior to the fall throughout center somewhat is what barack obama did the mitt romney successfully especially in ohio called him a vampire did that, and by the time romney turned down the after burners
7:10 am
it was too late, i know whether it can work for trump frankly we don't know how the general electorates going to receive trump when they meet him. >> i can tell you being in florida for a few days, it is ad after ad during stock car race on bravo you name it, hillary clinton her campaign her super pacs are running ads defining donald trump you might get one from may be every 10 to 12 tv ads hillary clinton is running it noticeable, senator brown nose a pathway for donald trump goes through a new hampshire through maine trump has been to maine wisconsin minnesota iowa, but right now, anyway the race not cooking up right for trump in florida he probably will have to cut bait
7:11 am
there. >> president obama vice president joe biden campaigning with hillary clinton next week does that help her is in a i think it he reinforces failed policies a lot of friends say i don't like trump i said you are going to vote for him they said yeah, i am voting for him because i hate clinton more it doesn't matter, that is what it takes to quinn that is fine because with that, comes the ability to push a policy a republican agenda, that can put people a back to work, just to touch on what the judge and chris said i think it is actually was a good thing that clinton bill clinton and loretta lynching banged into each other it force her now to go by the book, and take politics out of it may be we got a festather in the cap the fbi has done a great job hopefully take politics out of final decision. sandra: thanks to both of you

7:25 am
hands huge funds, who want to invest in make money off pension funds, basically takes 57 cents on every dollar that they invest and what the report has shown, that if we have a not vested in any hedge funds. >> that is your take what does hedge fund say what is their response. >> hedge funds have no response to it. that is why they are making it up and saying it is about anything else. >> the name of the report is all that glitters is not gold. >> what has gone happened, is that our union has become the consumer reports of retirement security and essentially what we just did was we looked ata 11 pension funds, and the performance of their investments. and what we saw is that hedge funds actually performed much worse to, the tune of 8 billion dollars worse than if you had just done regular investments on in a normal
7:26 am

community if people work hard they should have a pension we want to make sure, that that money is well vested, so that it is really teacher worker savings. >> what is trend to be identified pensions pouring out of hedge funds, we're seeing this trend growing. >> what is happening now, is that trustees around the country, are not just taking somebody's word for whether investment is good or bad they are asking questions. and what this report shows is that if you just vested in other instruments not in hedge funds but other instruments, you would have your earnings would have done 8 billion dollars better. >> so where is this going to go you are suing. >> we're not -- what all we're doing is we are being the consumer reports we are saying to trustees throughout the country, here is some data, here is some information. that is what we're doing. sandra: what is have response of the report so far. >> what has happened is that
7:28 am
truss thees, are actually asking more questions saying what is your return why are you charging us 57 cents of every dollar that you earn? why not actually on spending the money or why are you not actually doing better investments, that is what we're trying to do. >> rand >> randy good to hear from you a republicans call it a major conflict of interest some are showing displeasure issue with attorney general loretta lynch's meeting find out what is happening next. designed here, made here, shipped from here, on this plane flown by this pilot, who owns stock in this company, that builds big things and provides benefits to this woman, with new cabinets. they all have insurance crafted personally for them.

recommendations of career prosecutors and investigators along with fbi director james comey over the hillary clinton email scandal, lynch has been under fire. after that meeting she met privately with bill clinton. joining us is the host, judge janine is here. we had judge andrew napolitano on. we get to a private meeting and your take on that but what do you think about what we are expected to hear about loretta lynch saying they will accept any recommendation. >> at 11:00 at the aspen institute, she will have to further explain what she meant by that. a lot of people interpret her comments as meaning i am going to keep out of it, accept the recommendation of fbi director jim comey and career prosecutors. i guarantee you she will pull
7:34 am
that back and say i will make a decision. don't get comfortable with i am going to be really good about this and let the career prosecutors handle it. the president of the united states said there has been no security problem as a result of the clinton email server. that send a signal to the fbi. the husband of a target, of a criminal ongoing investigation with the fbi sends a signal to the fbi as well. what we have got here are people who lie on a regular basis. i did not have sex with that woman. i did not send emails with any security risk information on it. the bottom line is this. if the president instructed loretta you are not to put this in the grand jury and my theory is the reason they won't, hillary clinton emailed the president.
7:35 am
what does that tell you? that this president knew hillary clinton had a private server. if she were to be indicted, her first witness is the president of the united states which will throw this country into a constitutional crisis and i would bet my house she will not be indicted. >> we heard testimony from her top aide who said she knew it was the wrong thing to do. the controversy over the meeting between lynch and bill clinton on the tarmac is not a coincidence. from the reports we heard, the reporter that was tipped off that this happened bill clinton's plane sat there for 30 minutes before the meeting took place. >> that is what i said to everyone. you may want to take them at their word. i can't take them at their word.
7:36 am
if anyone approached me when i was investigating irrespective whether there was -- a president or local union person. i would run the other way and my staff, my bodyguards would all have said to me you can't do this one. >> and optics problem, the fact that that didn't happen suggest it was more than an optics problem. >> absolutely right. people say we don't know what they said. they were talking about their grandchildren. my whatever. they were not talking about their grandchildren. the law is clear. you must avoid the appearance of impropriety. not just we don't know what they said, give them the benefit of the doubt. it is a requirement of all of us that you avoid the appearance and when bill clinton goes on
7:37 am
that jet and has to stop everything on the tarmac, doesn't have her permission to do it, it is just another example of how they are laughing at us. >> back to the point these are accidents, circumstances, none of us know what they set on the plane but that is not the issue. the fact that they took that time that he waited in a private area of the airport, it was verified by another independent tip. he had a meeting with his boss, this is a case of a reporter doing their job, public schedules, attorney general of the united states has a public schedule. if they wanted a meeting they could have had a public scheduled meeting. sandra: this was unplanned. lynch -- they talked about grandchildren and golf and obviously didn't touch on the
7:38 am
email investigation, suggested he walks over uninvited from his plane to her government plane. >> the president of the united states always walks over uninvited. >> it is more important than that. the signal is don't blame me. it is him. but it was her plane. she didn't have to let him on. any ethical prosecutor, attorney general would have said i love you, bill, we can't do this, period, end a story. dagen: clinton knows it looks bad. at this point -- >> does he care? >> his wife is running for the presidency, wouldn't you avoid at all costs anything that looks bad? >> to influence the attorney general? understand -- do this for a living, if she wins he is signaling to loretta lynch there is more for you. >> couldn't they have just picked up the phone and had a
7:39 am
chat? might do it in a more public way people would get a hold of it and report it. >> hubris. this happens all the time. nothing funny about it. we will do this, the story will go in a couple weeks. a new news cycle will start and we will be on to the next thing but the influence -- dagen: hillary clinton doesn't get charged, any one of these fbi investigators knows there is evidence that it is going to get out. politically it is going to hurt her regardless of how you cut it. >> especially with the last statements when they came out and said we are pretty much going to accept the determination of fbi director and prosecutors. that is almost unleashing them
7:40 am
and saying all right, if we don't accept your determination you are free to come out and attack us. i guarantee she will pull back on that at 11:00 this morning. >> thanks for being here. one company has a solution to end the chaos of boarding a flight. the hated middle seat might save you the hassle of flying. it is the time of year, the start of nba free agency and there is more money available than ever in nba history. how the players are cashing in, the dollar amounts straightahead.

8:03 am
will receive and accept recommendations of career prosecutors and investigators with james comey over the hillary clinton email scandal. lynch has been under fire after that meeting, she met privately with hillary's husband, former president bill clinton on the tarmac. let's bring in juan williams, author of we the people, your take on loretta lynch's announcement that is expected to be coming at 11:00 this morning that she will receive all recommendations from the ndi. >> the real politics was james comey was always going to be the ruling hand here. he has the upper hand in the power play because he is regarded across political aisles as a person of integrity, he angers the white house over lots of issues but on this case if jim comey sent a recommendation to loretta lynch and loretta
8:04 am
lynch said i'm going to ignore jim comey i think jim comey would go public, fbi agents would go public. you have seen former fbi agents talk about white house interference. the political pressure is so intense around this issue given the republican dream of undercutting hillary clinton's presidential ambitions that there was no option for her but to accept. show she is -- sandra: the questions following that meeting, loretta lynch never meeting with hillary clinton's husband -- >> let's be clear, a range of meetings. she is in a private plane. sandra: they didn't to bump into each other and brush shoulders. >> the former president walked into this studio where you would say get out. >> the attorney general -- >> back to something --
8:05 am
dagen: you say, mister president, with all due respect i cannot be put in a situation where i am sitting on this plane. >> he was in a position when she was saying that. let's stop for a second. he gets on the plane because he wants to meet loretta lynch for whatever nefarious reasons we might ascribe to it but he wants to be there and talking about his grandkids and a pleasure to meet you and here is your husband. dagen: he appointed her to the bench. >> not like me, i know you very well. this is like appointing officials across the country. >> can we go to something prosecutors forget? you have someone prosecuting someone's why for investigating, her department leads an investigation, impropriety, prosecutors, the judge made the statement earlier, judge andrew
8:06 am
napolitano, this is something they wouldn't do, you say with all due respect, mister president, this is not going to look good. >> already at that point it looks bad. even david axelrod, you see senators, democrat senators, this didn't look good. that is not what you want, you should not have someone at that level meeting with someone else at an even greater level. clearly the optics, and opportunity for every right-wing conspiracy in america. that is what we see. nobody -- anybody here think loretta lynch is actually now in on the take? >> it is impropriety, it is improper. that doesn't make it a right-wing conspiracy. >> with all the talk about it? dagen: the new york times headline, republicans are mad. and president clinton met on the tarmac and republicans got upset and when you read the article --
8:07 am
the headline -- hold my nose moment. sandra: a lot happening with the campaign, hillary clinton scoring another endorsement from french president françois hollande, joe biden also saying former rival senator bernie sanders will endorse hillary clinton as well but do they matter in light of the fallout from the meeting? not to bring that back? >> do they matter? it matters because here is the key dynamic in political play as we going into the fourth of july holiday consolidating your party's base. we have seen hillary clinton has in the last month or so been able to do, working towards just the kind of endorsement you are talking about.
8:08 am
on the republican side, not happening for donald trump. if you look at the polls the latest fox news poll has hillary up by 6. the reason for that is republicans falling back on donald trump and so he is still struggling. still has difficult time with paul ryan, mitch mcconnell and the republican establishment, telling his followers i don't need the republican party and you look at what is going on in the set up for the convention, number of republicans, prominent republicans saying we won't be there, that is a struggle for the republicans and donald trump, hillary clinton if this is true about bernie sanders endorsement in particular very good news. >> my question about bernie. dagen: when he tweeted about endorsing hillary clinton, this will go over well in ohio, north carolina, virginia, which is where the president will be with hillary clinton and joe biden will be campaigning as well. >> my question, bernie or bust, i have gone to those bernie rallies, interviewed a couple
8:09 am
hundred of these people and talked to many more do you think they go along given the bernie message is look at the people at the top, the clintons, wall street ties, politicians, that you don't matter. what about the bernie or bust group? >> look at the numbers. when we see to so far that burning people and coming over faster than hillary's people did to barack obama in 2008. i think you are onto something here. it is kind of undercurrent the bernie people at the convention, at the platform, going forward have their own agenda. they are anti-trump. at this point they are also anti-democratic establishment and a lot of people are losing that story because of their focus. >> i will let you have the last word. >> dagan mcdowell picked up on
8:10 am

8:23 am
that is an exciting prospect. a beautiful country. sandra: let's look at oil prices. that determines where gasoline goes in the future and as we look at them this morning, we see $48.11 a barrel. right now we end the second quarter with the largest single quarter percentage gain for oil since the second 1:45,009. where do oil prices go from here? >> i think they go north from here. we are getting closer to equilibrium. even the secretary of energy said yesterday that he sees equilibrium 2017. we may beat that. the reduction in crude production in the us is proceeding week by week by week and as long as the drill count is as low as it is there is nothing that will happen other than reduction in oil production in the us so that is inevitable. it would take a doubling of today's rate count many people estimate to just hold even.
8:24 am
the 400 some odd rig that are working will not produce enough new oil to sustain today's production which means there is going to be less as the months role on to the end of the year. not more. >> with nigerian production coming online and the wildfires subsiding, low gas prices through the remainder of this year. >> i see crude prices continuing their trek northward. i think that will flow through to the gasoline price. that is why i say enjoy it now. the next 30 to 60 days will be about the end of the surplus we have been experiencing over the last two months and then we will see it move north. sandra: there have been vote on raising gas taxes, increases are in the pipeline for maryland and
8:25 am
washington, several states are looking at hiking and cutting. >> in jersey they tabled the vote yesterday and the governor tied it to roads and bridges, this affect the average every day american, the fisherman down there, diesel tax-free, $.33 a gallon. when this happens regardless what the gas prices or crude prices are the average american goes $.23. dagen: if infrastructure was crumbling, hillary clinton and president obama talk about it for years the need to fix our infrastructure, who is going to pay for it? if not the people using the roads? we haven't raised the natural gas
8:26 am
dagen: changed the topic, who pays for it? who pays for it? >> lower the cost of doing the work. >> when we look at what is happening in new jersey this bill that is making its way through the state legislature, $.23 tax hike will take it from $.14 to 37. what does that do to demand? >> most demand in new jersey is elastic because there is no public transportation system of any magnitude to offer an alternative and there is an awful lot of commuters that live in new jersey and as a consequence people will simply pay. new jersey is a transit state, people going south to north on i-95. they have no choice. it is a non-elastic demand.
8:27 am
i know from past experience in the oil business that the demand in new jersey just is the demand in new jersey so it is a sure way to raise the gas tax. dagen: i was going to point out where they don't let you pump your own gas that makes so much sense, people spilling gas on the ground trying to round it up, running it down the side of your automobile. >> they did this initially about maintaining jobs under the democrats. the farce -- my point earlier, we are not attacking the real issues. taxpayers are getting screwed on this. dagen: they are not. sandra: enjoy those low gas prices while they last. >> philip your tanks before they raise the price. sandra: from the reunions to the barbecues, americans have big plans but could mother nature rain on your parade? we have the forecast next. patriotic refreshments, what you

8:31 am
loretta lynch will search the fbi's recommendations in the investigation as well as those of career prosecutors and lawyers. this coming after the private meeting on the tarmac between lynch and former president bill clinton. on high alert. airports ramping up security as millions of americans hit the roads and the skies for the july 4th holiday. despite the homeland security, jay johnson says that americans should still celebrate. >>e continue to encourage the public to travel, to associate, to celebrate the holidays, to celebrate the july 4th holiday, continue to go to public events, but be aware and be vigilant. >> honoring our heroes, troops at fort bragg getting an independence day treat courtesy of major league baseball. the league building a stadium from scratch for a game this weekend. details on that ahead.
8:32 am
the july 4th weekend means barbecues. every burger and hot dog needs a good drink to go with it. we have a patriotic cocktail recipe coming up. checking markets, we're about an hour away from the opening bell, futures hovering around the flat line all morning, literally. you're looking at dow futures currently up six points. all right, what is really moving this morning? treasuries. take a look at this, the yield on the 10-year falling to a record low. now 1 po.43%. comment on that. >> markets are not as concerned about brexit as a few days ago. you're still seeing the flight to safety and that's why the yields are falling. sandra: turning to breaking news, the justice department saying attorney general loretta lynch will receive and accept recommendations of career prosecutors and investigators and director james comey this coming after the private meeting on the tarmac between lynch and former president bill clinton.
8:33 am
joining us now is the host of "varney & company," stuart varney, who surely has something to say about all of this? >> damage control. that's what it is. damage control. the reputation of loretta lynch, the attorney general of the united states of america was badly damaged. she held a meeting as you know, as you've been reporting, sandra, she held a meeting with bill clinton on the tarmac in phoenix, arizona. that meeting supposedly discussed only grandchildren and golf and travel. so, why is it that the attorney general of the united states held a private, unannounced meeting, a secret meeting with the husband of the woman who is under intense investigation by the fbi, which works for the attorney general of the united states? that is flat-out conflict of interest and frankly, it's a disgrace. now, damage control. now loretta lynch says, well, she will accept anything that the fbi hands down. in other words, she's not being influenced or intimidated by
8:34 am
bill clinton, no, it's the fbi's case and they will decide it. i think it's damage control and i think it comes a little bit too late. sandra: of course, this is being painted as republicans had a big problem with that meeting, when dagen, of course, was pointing out earlier or some of our previous guests, juan williams pointed out david axelrod also had a problem with this meeting. stuart: the constitution has a problem with the meeting. sandra: fair point. stuart: the legal industry has a problem with the meeting. it should never have taken place and someone in the attorney general's position, to even think about holding such a meeting, is flat-out ridiculous and out of the question. sandra: so she's expected later this morning during your show, stuart, to be making this recommendation, saying that she's making this announcement that she's going to accept the fbi recommendations in this clinton e-mail inquiry investigation, inquiry is a polite way to say it. it's an investigation by the
8:35 am
fbi dagen stuart can make insight into this, but, you remember hillary clinton calling it a security inquiry. and james comey had to come out and say, i don't know what that means, there's an investigation going on. stuart: look, the bottom line here is the suspicion that america's government, the administration, has been using the machinery of government to influence elections. they did this with the irs scandal, just before the 2012 election. the irs clamped down on political activists, conservative people and that influenced the presidential election. i suspect this is another somewhat similar related issue. you have bill clinton intimidating-- the former president intimidating the attorney general about an investigation of his wife. that's using the machinery of government, the power of government, to influence an investigation and influence a presidential election. it's a disgrace. sandra: and stuart, the stock market. can't wait to watch your show today. unbelievable to see that almost
8:36 am
all of that 600 point plus drop that we saw after the brexit vote. we've almost come completely back. can't wait. stuart varney. we'll see that, and every day at 9 a.m. eastern, thank you, sir. let's check the weather ahead of the long holiday weekend. fox meteorologist maria molina tells us it's going to be a glorious holiday weekend and we all could have our barbecues? >> i wish i had that news. there will be weather the next couple of days, starting off, the areas will include the northeast, parts of the mid atlantic, down into the carolinas, and farther west across portions of the central plains and here we're looking at the damaging winds and hail and isolated tornados and as we kick off the weekend on saturday, i'm told the weather will continue across the portions of the central plains and the carolinas. looking at several days of mess
8:37 am
and across the central plains, the concern isn't just for storms that could bring severe weather, but flash flooding as we're going to pick up heavy rain, potentially four to six inches across oklahoma, kansas, missouri, even extending into illinois and because of the flood threat we have a number of flash flood watches that have been issued here and will be sticking around throughout the weekend. otherwise for fourth of july, what everyone wants to know, is it going to be raining or not. can they do outdoor plans? if you live in parts of the midwest and also in the northeast, things are looking pretty good to you, relatively dry with clouds and sun and temperatures that are pretty pleasant for this time of year. here you go, the plains, again, still expecting storms in the forecast and it's going to be a scorcher for you in dallas. dealing with storms and humidity and temperatures potentially 101 degrees. and western texas numbers in the triple digits and out west where we need the rain, no rain in sight.
8:38 am
many fireworks bans already occurring out here becse of the holiday coming up and how dry it has been. so that's going to continue to be a concern out there. sunshine for those temperatures out west are going to be rather pleasant. 80's and 70's, wyatt spread. sandra: thank you for all of that. have a good weekend. coming up, it could be a long weekend for micron technology shareholders. why the stock is taking a plunge in the premarket trading session. right now, down more than $1. plus, call it a field of dreams. look at this, the major move that baseball is making to honor our vets. we'll have that for you next. >> welcome back to another tennis channel wimbledon court report for fox business, i'm jonathan novac. and the french open champion is out of the championships. the number two seed was dumped out in the biggest upset of the tournament so far. and hallet on number one court

8:45 am
[laughter] and they have them coming down and-- they're playing better and starting to turn things around. sandra: here is a time lapse. a little more about this. you just mpgsed, this was specifically, the ballpark specifically created for this event after word it will be turned over to the fort bragg community and become a multi-purpose recreational facility consisting of 12 athletic fields. it's a great idea. that would be great to see more of this in support of the troops and your brother-- >> fort bragg, this is a base that's almost 500 square files miles. half the guys don't know where they're building it because it's so big. they're excited and this is a crowd of 12,500 people and small crowd, brand new stadium and really great. >> and military personnel only. very strict. in fact, military personnel and you want to bring somebody in your family to the game, they have to be on a list. no selling of tickets at all. in fact, someone on craigslist
8:46 am
was putting on things, saying i'll pay $1,000 to get in because they know they want to be a part of this. is there anything more american than what will be taking plagues at the ballpark sunday night? >> there's also a history we need to recognize between baseball and sports. if you go across to pacific, the island of guam. you will find baseball fields everywhere because so many baseball players went into and fought world 2 and whether they stood up there and were figures to help the war effort or go out to play. the marines on guam, playing after taking back the island from the japanese, just as an example. baseball has always been part of our military. sandra: to that point more than 500 players served in the united states during world war ii. >> i've been to germany on behalf of baggage -- major league baseball and there's an amateur community there as a result of world war ii. >> right, we've got 53,000
