keep that up with breaking news at the moment. the e.u. antitrust regulators have ordered ireland to recover over $14 billion from apple in illegal tax benefits. regulators say the amounts could be codified their countries including the u.s. are at or pay my taxes. this feels like a big story. do we have a precedent on this? >> this will play out over time. the u.s. treasury has said this isn't a fair ruling. there's no secret to e.u. is not a fan of tax policies favor a long time criticize lower taxes than the rest of the e.u. this doesn't surprise me in the dynamic of the e.u., ireland is not a big hit because taxes are so much lower. apple saying this is money we earned abroad. we will
pay ta doing that yet. nothing here to talk about. dagen: the problem is the e.u. is unfairly targeting u.s. companies. and they are going after deals
that individual companies cut with individual countries over there. it puts in jeopardy any kind of deal that a corporation brokers to bring jobs to any of these nations. it's a statement about the socialist state. they are in dire need of money to fund the social programs throughout the whole of europe and this is how they're going to do it and they will make enemy business and it's foolish. maria: the e.u. looks at the competitive environment based on companies. they don't come to decisions based on what's best for the customer. if this is anti-competitive for another competitor of apple, that's why they always thought deals. they are looking at the corporate landscape. >> with the lawsuits against google, they are defining markets in their own ways and forgetting about customers. this is a pretty beneficial deal for apple. a good deal for ireland and production. this seems to be more than big
day than it does to be a policy precedent. >> no-space companies want to add quarter in ireland. because the corporate tax rate is so much lower in ireland. dagen: an argument for corporate tax reform in this country which is really the centerpiece to talk about repeatedly of donald trump's cap proposals in addition to that he wants to do. also it speaks to ireland understands how to bring jobs to the country even if it's a low tax rate, bring in revenue and the rest of europe doesn't get that. maria: that's why this will resonate with voters as well. >> people are going to start learning more about why it's so beneficial to have different corporate tax rates. it does bring jobs and business back then that is something we need in the states. maria: disobeyed the business story of the moment. turn to the white house as well print the new poll this morning shows all jump is cutting into
hillary clinton's late. the latest poll shows a head-to-head matchup hillary clinton has 49% support among likely voters to double trumps ordered 2%. clinton held a 13-point lead among likely voters we can donald trump closes gap? pollster and former senior adviser to scout walker and mitt romney's presidential campaign. good to see you again. thank you for joining us. or take away his donald trump seems to be narrowing the gap. >> well, if you look at the average of the polls, the race has settled into a five or six by race. i had just seven points, there are a couple things about three or four points more republican than they should be. the demographic split on gender is 50/50. issued the 4852. both of those favorite tribe. it would give him a little bit better numbers than the average above the polls. basically, this race -- two
weeks after the democratic convention that was not good for donald trump has settled down to where it is. if you look at hillary clinton, she's about to point out her high water mark over the last year. trump is about 3.5..this high water mark. that's a natural center of the race. maria: you are watching this in real-time. how do real-time. have you seen it? >> i think donald trump has done a great job of stepping back, stop taking the day. he's really focused on the issues. hillary is out there attacking saying crazy things about donald trump and he stepped back a policy speech is for voters. he will be out there talking about immigration tomorrow. a really big day for him. i think we will continue to see the gap closed as as that continues to show discipline and focus and stops at the crazy outlandish statements.
dagen: if you look at the staples in critical swing states, there are states in play for hillary clinton that were not won by barack obama. if you look at missouri or georgia, she's got potentially a shot in this date. it's not worth some? >> yes. trump is doing better in blue states like pennsylvania, very much in play is still in some of the polling. clearly if you look at the electoral college map, clinton has an advantage because she is not only cutting into those red states that she's moved the traditional tossup states into the democratic column at this point. it is still very early on that. what you see in the individuals they decide is where you see the advertising wars between the two campaigns in still a lot of play left in those. maria: that they move on to the state department issued.
a federal judge ruled yesterday that the state department must hand over any nonexempt documents concerning huma abedin before election day. our headlines impacting clinton's trustworthiness numbers in the campaign in general? >> the most recent polls show them about the same untrustworthiness and honesty. their numbers are so baked in in terms of negatives. hillary on the average polls that 53%. she started at 55. trump has come down but he still at 60%. he started at 55%. i find in the polling versus much question about trump and his taxes as hillary and the e-mails. or in some new validation, all of this is white noise that started them out there and baked into the numbers. >> it's interesting you talk about these views.
what does it take to get out of these negatives? it seems like they are stuck there. they will have to get off these negatives. what happens to make that happen? >> well, that's the tough thing of this campaign is traditionally there's 30% that like both candidates. that is down to about 3% of the amount or her. normally only 10% of this site both candidates up around 30%. it is very much a focus right now looking at the numbers of those voters who dislike both candidates driving which one do they dislike more in terms of moving the numbers enough for the campaign plays have been. maria: and it has been accepting from trump this week? >> tone and tenor is extremely important. but we need to understand is having the right tone and tenor and immigration only gets us a seat at the table with the hispanic vote. right now we did the univision
poll and he was only getting 19% of the hispanic vote. when a dispute that afterwards 30% that we have a group of voters to go after in turn up for the republican nominee. i don't know that he can. his unfavorable rating with hispanics right now is running in the high 70s. he certainly has to change it. the key on the hispanic vote is that always got 90% of our hispanic vote for middle-class hispanics. that's who he's talking to. dagen: one quick thing. his appeal to hispanics and blacks in this country is a lot about appealing to republicans who are uncomfortable and he wants them to get on board. he needs to tone it down. not just to woo latinos, but also the people who are sold via. traditional republicans. maria: good to see you. thanks so much.

joins me right now. general, good to see you. >> good to see you, maria. maria: what's your reaction? how concerned should we be? >> well, we have to be concerned and alarmed by it. you already mentioned it. there's been a pattern here. two intelligence agencies, military agencies and the other equivalent to the cia. the russians have had a history of penetrating elections in eastern europe, also on the report here is they try to influence the brexit vote. they clearly used cyber offensive capability to achieve geopolitical objective. maria: do we have the capability to get behind this and stop this and make sure that they don't
penetrate? >> it's unparallel in the world, the russians are second and our defenses are not anywhere what they should be. the only thing protected is military networks and certain classified aspects of the government. the government itself is not and our critical infrastructure in the united states, banking industry, finance industry, utilities, transportation, those things, defenseless. maria: people were worried about voter fraud and now this. a number of confrontations between internal revenue when and the u.s., it's nearly doubled just in the first half of 2016 compared a year ago. general, how far will iran go before this administration takes action? >> well, first of all, ever since the deal took place, the nuclear deal in mid-2015 the iranians have been taking the gloves off and demonstrating to everybody that they're going to
be the dominant power in the middle east. so as much as they are using the tactical vehicle patrol boats to intimidate and harass the united states, really the gulf state, middle east states, they want to demonstrate to them that while they went through this negotiation for a couple of years, they have not changed their strategic objectives to dominate the region. that's what this is about. the united states will go through this, we are going to put up with humiliation, we have rules of engagement, if our troops are in dairnl, those captains will shoot for sure. maria: what should allies be doing including the u.s.? >> that's a good question. what we do doesn't have anything to do with gun boats, diplomacy, so to speak. united states should reengage with allies in the region and sunni arabs into alliance or former version of nato and the recent for doing
that is because of the strategic objectives that iran has to dominate the region. we have got to stand up with this. we are giving $150 billion to execute objectives. we intend to dominate the region, the way we are going to do that is drive the united states out of the region and destroy the state of is ra ee. every single year for 35 years they said the same thing. maria: incredible. isn't it true that our allies are not going to get us with this with assad there, they want assad taken down? >> they truly want assad taken down but they are frustrate that had the united states has disengaged from the middle east. we pulled out of iraq and libya, we got the muslim brotherhood, one policy decision after another has frustrated. there was an opportunity to top assad, the syrian government wanted our help, we did not give
it to them. they are so frustrated. they cannot wait until there's a new administration here. maria: by the way, a lot of poem are frustrated. they are wondering what are the motivations of this administration with that laundry list that you just layed out and then, of course, there's the syrian refugee. yesterday the united states admits its tenth thousand syrian migrant, the state department spokesperson kirby say more are coming, watch this. >> we will need the 10,000 figure today and i would fully expect that you'll see additional syrian refugees admitted. he already set a goal 85,000 total by the end of this fiscal year. we believe that we are going to be on track to meet that. maria: 85,000. that's the number. i didn't realize that was the target 85,000. initially the president said
10,000. we know isis is trying to infiltrate the refugee flow. how do we keep the country safe? >> isis will try to penetrate. it's easier in europe, they're open borders, there's no vetting, no custom procedure that we have in the united states, however, there has been a lot of effort mainly because, i think, the attention has paid to this, fox principally so and there's been a significant amount of vetting, who is coming in this 10,000, mostly family, people who have been injured, people who have had death in the families, people who have been sick, some tortured. if we have the young person that military age that's in that group and by themselves, i don't believe that they are getting in. we have on the cautious. i think what we have done, maria, now that we have reached the president's goal of 10,000, let's have a hearing on it and
find out how well we did on it. the good news we haven't had any terrorist that we know of that infiltrated. none of them have ever committed a terrorist act. that is a good news here. we have to be cautious because this is syria and this is where most of the terrorists are. we have to know what we are doing here. maria: you're confident regardless we are doing a good job vetting? >> i suspect we are. maria: i know isis has a passport machine. >> this is so much under a microscope. the easiest way to get into the united states is the open visa or coming through a phoney passport. maria: which is what we saw in the san bernardino situation. we appreciate it. love having you in studio. >> thank you.

$10 million. lee carter, we want to hear your take on the ads. let's listen to the two ads. we kick it off with trump's ad. >> in hillary clinton's america the middle class gets crushed, spending goes up, taxes go up, hundreds of thousands
of jobs disappear, it's more of the same but worst. in donald trump's america, millions of new jobs create it, wages go up, small businesses thrive, the american dream achievable, change that makes america great again. donald trump for president. >> i am donald trump and approve this message. maria: what grade do you give this trump ad? >> i give it a b minus. it's not going to hurt out but doesn't stand out. the ad on national security out
last week was much more effective. the fear plays much better. he had an opportunity here that was frankly missed. in my opinion he could have used policy that stands out that have people talking. in this way it's a very solid, well, he's going to create jobs, better economy. nothing that people are going to have conversations about. maria: she said so many things that he could have used in the ad, cut every coal job or i'm going to add on obamacare or i'm going to add onto dodd-frank. those are the kinds of things which would resinate with people, right? dagen: do you define as a candidate at this point in the election cycle, do you run those ads, define yourself or attack, attack, attack because last week it was about attacking one another in the most vicious way, even in the ads, kkk ad.
that was insane. lee: it's a little bit like a whiplash. if he was going to use fear tactics like he did in the beginning, he could have been more specific. she could have done a lot of things that make you question her. the lack of specificity, a criticism in
general. maria: the latest from hillary clinton. >> you're living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, look at my african american over here. trump management was charged with discriminating against african americans and breaking federal law. >> i have a great relationship with the blacks, i've always had a great relationship with the blacks. what the hell do you have to lose? >> i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message.
maria: so interesting. she did what he didn't do. she used his words against him. >> i give it an a minus. we forget all of the things that have happened up to this point and so we have a really short memory. we keep going on to the next thing and what she's done very effectively reminded us of those moments. you fighter. this is like she's going to nail him one after another and remind us of the things that make you not want to give donald trump the benefit of the doubt. i think it was a really smart ad. >> you know, it's interested he went negative and positive in his ad. she clearly save one set of ads for positive and one for negative. >> they both have merit. everybody says they hate the attack ad but when you're trying to get to election day, not the
push that button or pull the lever, however you vote in your state, it can be really effective and even though we hate them. the question is and hillary clinton effectively gone on the offensive here, attacking donald trump, trying to bait him, we were talking about some of her attacks where the attack ad might not that be effective but it's like bait in front of donald trump. he has done a good job for the last ten days of not taking the bait. very, very different donald trump than we have seen before. dagen: how critical are the debates. the new york times has an interesting piece today about debate prep and the clinton campaign is doing research to try and needle trump during the debates even talking to the ghost writer from art of the deal and trump on the other hand, this is "the new york times" reporting, that he did not want to take part at least so far in mocked debates with the clinton standum and they see
the critical importance of defining themselves and one another. lee: i think after the first debate, it'll be the most critical moments in the debate so far. he should be preparing. he has not been on the one-on-one dynamic. we were talking about that. debating a woman, whether we like gender roles or not is a very different thing than standing next to chris christie. it's the bottom line and he needs to understand how to do that. it's going to be all -- eyes are going to be on this debate and people are still changing their mind. we have seen in the poll that more than 50% of people have changed their minds. we have weak support. when you have -- when you have likability numbers that are low, a lot of people who traditionally will go republican who aren't, if you look at the catholic vote, she has that in the bag. that hasn't happened in years. maria: is that right? lee: one of the things we should
be focused on is you can change people's minds in these things. she has to picture a lot of things that people want, we want tax relief. we want a safer america, we want a stronger america, that's the message and the core of it. hillary clinton's message is garbled. she list every policy starting with alzheimer's. dagen: i laughed about that. the hoof, cracking down on treating horse hoofs with chemicals to change their gates, that's on the website. >> unbelievable. maria: what do you stand for because it's too much stuff. what are the races that we need to focus on? lee: mccain, on the establishment versus the underdog.
a key indicator of how people are going to vote and what we are seeing is that the underdog has been underindexing on the poll. he's only 4 points ahead. i think there's a chance that mccain's seat is at risk. rubio is going to take it and debbie wasserman schultz is going to underperform but probably still take the race but she will take a hit based on what happened at the dnc and she should. maria: outragingous prices parents are expected to pay, backpacks, head bands, we are going to ta ally it up for you. orange juice with your breakfast, well, it might be harder to come by, one of the averages is having a meltdown. that's next. stay with us
maria: welcome back. congressional lawmakers launching investigation into the price surge of epipen. here is dagen with the story and other headlines. dagen: requesting documents and internal communications about that epipen price hike. the lawmakers asking to brief the committee by next tuesday. the price for the two-pack epipen increased from $100 in 2009 to $600 this year. this comes as mylan announced it
will release a generic version of the epipen that will cost about $300 for a pack of two. epipen generates annual sales of a billion dollars. the merger between oreo maker international and hershey is off. no longer after hershey refused offer last second. second offer since june. there's no pass forward for a deal. hershey downs more than 11% down after hours trading. and the latest retailing trend suggest that the growing gap between the rich and poor is being seen in stores that students stock up. shoppers can buy 195-dollar head band or 575 versace backpack.

on a monthly basis consumers drink $1.4 million of frozen concentrated orange juice but this pails in comparison to the 19.1 million of fresh orange juice consumed. are the days of the frozen concentrated orange juice numbered? i want so bring senior vice president and good to see you, roger. thank you so much for joining us. all of the breakfast items because orange juice at one point was all the rage and it's not anymore. how come? >> as i was discussing earlier, orange juice lost with all the diets, the low-sugar diets and all that. when adkins came around the orange juice lost a lot of appeal. everybody would always say including my mom, have a glass of orange juice in the morning, now with all the energy drinks out there, every other choice, orange juice is unhealthy choice and it's really, you know, you can see nit the market and cobbed sumción.
[laughter] dagen: again, people even orange juice drinkers have moved away from concentrated orange. it has no market anymore. >> the concentrate -- not necessarily that you actually take home and mix yourself, most of your orange juice if you look at the carton says concentrate. everything is fresh. you know, everything you get is fresh. that has a lot to do with the concentrate orange juice. whether it's in a container made from concentrate or actually still mixing it which i don't know of anybody who does, my mom is still alive and i don't think she even does it. dagen: it is a critical component of any one's diet because you make shurbert punch
for it. >> there's still a use for it? dagen: absolutely. maria: something that has taken the place. there is some truth to the fact that sugar is the enemy when it comes to, you know, your health and so sugar in concentrated orange juice. what has taken its place? >> well, you could say what has taken its place is alternate drinks like anything from gatorade to powerade and, you kn, juice is basically -- all of our orange juice comes from florida. california is where you get most of the fresh fruit. you say what's taking its place, all the other choices. believe it or not, are people drinking those for breakfast, i assume they are. they start with a red bull, a powerade or gatorade or even
such an orange juice. maria: let me ask you about a story in the wall street journal. number three story, the u.s. on track to pose the longest stretch of falling prices. that's got to be good news for customers, obviously but bad news for farmers and grociers. >> without a doubt. i think it's just the whole culture, the way people are eating, smaller meals. everything from red meat to oriental juice. look at that plate of sausage. maria: i know some people who will eat it. [laughter] dagen: a lot is excess supply of food products, demand from china and other countries has fallen because the dollar has been strong. >> without a doubt.
that hurts significantly when you look at other countries and you see the demand has fallen. like a lot of our food commodities which i traded throughout my year, coffee, sugar, cocoa. you have see them fall also. the participation isn't there as the trade and consumption isn't there from the consumer so the journal is right on with the story saying these are all down like 50% in the past year or so. i mean, you know, it's supply and demand just like oil. what do they mention? the supply and the demand. it's the same thing in the food business. >> we talk about consumers not getting a raise for over a decade or more. the falling food prices and oil prices have been helpful for average person. producers are sort of saying, this is a real problem. consumers are cheering it. >> it couldn't come for a better time with the economy and you see the struggles and reflection of the -- the dow isn't a
reflection of the economy. it's the truth. you are given the consumers a break but in the same tone you do have a lot of farmers that are going to start struggling. for every good story there's the underlying bad story that follows it. maria: it all works together whether you look at the economy in the federal reserve. you don't see the kind of inflation that would warrant interest rates to move higher. that's one issue. >> well, you know, that's a debatable issue every day. it's the same thing. the market doesn't at these levels think about raising the rates, at what point are we going to get there. maria: i guess there is some inflation when it comes to wages, right, that's where there's inflation but food is down. >> farmers are hurting, the land -- just as an example in orange juice, most of the land that was growing oranges is being converted into real estate because that's where the value is. farmers who had a lot of real estate in florida are converting and building homes on it because
that's what makes sense. >> so interesting too the way people consume food, people want local, not big brands, you want your local small brands and i don't -- that makes it really tough for farmers. the quantity. >> have you seen so many farmers markets? every saturday, tuesday, wednesday there's a farmers market. my son goes to school union square. years ago there were no farmers market. everybody shopped in the food store. dagen: people say i only eat local and eat doritos taco loco twice a week. lee: i see it all of the time with my clients. how do you get somebody to have
tropicana when you get fresh squeeze? >> when you're growing up that your parents had in the refrigerator. my son lives with two roommates. there's three things in there. [laughter] >> it's the truth. maria: people still eating pancakes and waffles. we are still good there. thank you so much. checking the health of obamacare and the administration is starting to perform triage and how it can affect your healthcare costs. we will discuss why some experts have serious fears about the state of the u.s. economy. stay with us on that. back in a minute
i had so many thoughts once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to.
eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you.
maria: good morning welcome back i am maria bartiromo it is tuesday your top stories right now 7:30 a.m. on the east coast backing down on obamacare as more companies pull out of exchanges the administration forced to make changes, republicans have their own plans. >> -- tom and if we can get this done on day one it will be real good. >> they actual before we get in an augraitsdz congress actually convenes we will look to them to put on our desk a bill that will repeal obamacare lock, stock and barrel. maria: that is not the only issue congress is facing what

doing anything wrong european commission taking so-called state aid rules ruling a country doesn't tax a company as much as the beaucrats in brussels want it to be taxed that is equivalent to subsidy or handout, i think this is really unprecedented, an attack on american multinationals main target of this entire -- >> because of the multinationals go to ireland to operate because tax situation is so much better there, so how is this is playing out will apple be successful in appeal? >> well, apple ireland i think will have the primary role of appealing this decision, but question is where do you appeal european commission sort of set this up to do judge, constitutioner strang ideology, equivalent to -- remarkable if this decision stands you can be insure american companies amazon, mcdonald's others under the
gun a tremendous money grab by european commission. >> in any case a good point we know there are so many companies a lot of octobering companies phrma companies in ireland right now, does this european commission ruling affect them are they starting to make preparations to deal with this? road looks like facing same fate here? >> all of them have to be prepared, because there is unquestionably an antiireland antiirish tax system animus motivating the european commission what is ironic if countries say germany, think that apple is diverting income of to ireland they have plenty of -- they want to there is already he mechanisms in place, that can handle this this is prudented amazingly destructive thing for european commission to be doing in forms of international tax policy. >> do you think this becomes
fighting. >> suring -- after a number of insurance companies announced plans to ditches affordable care act exchanges leaving one-third coins with single obamacare insurer by 2017, i want to get your take on npro positivesals so that insurers are losing hundreds of mlts a year on policies useful scene players leave market i think they could look and see this possibility but even with this kind of provision, look if everybody is losing money, you
know doesn't matter when we try to redistribute profrths nobody is going to make gains here they have a real problem you are seeing this obamacare death spiral evidence administration understands this throwing everything they can at the problem. >> do you think donald trump or hillary clinton has discussed or reallyi communicated a better ta. >> trump missed opportunity to say more about health care was weak on this in the debate we saw disasters in the debates, trying to talk health care policy, he has not said much about it since then, and look this is an area where obamacare -- americans across the board can feel the premium increases see insurers leaving a unifying message i don't know why he hasn't talked about it more. >> one idea floated is public
option, a option to apply health insurance from what would be the government it would be like medicare if you will not to make it completely of government run you health insurance but at least provide a path to that, that is her -- but, again,, isn't that what they wanted all along? >> it seems like this is just a extend in that direction, now, i think that you are right. i think that the donald trump has missed an opportunity because i think it is easy to message this to focus on things people feeling pain of obamacare not as successful as they expected we only have 11 million people enrolled in it very, very expensive a lot of people are suffering because all everybody else's premiums going up i think that there has to be a solution, and i think should it berarticulated be articulated donald trump focused on economy jobs national security, health care falls below that i think that is why he hasn't done it yet.
>> kellyanne conway had talked about this very specifically, because again, the major changes, you get hit with a price increases october i think right before election, i would guess you are going to see more articulation from trump campaign on this may be ads cut closer to election people don't have choices, health care prices are going up because of obamacare they will be hitting that that is about the economy, and about your family safety and security. >> -- there is not a lot of conversation about the debt and deficit new cbo estimate predicts budget deficit is going to spike 590 billion dollars this year national debt to hit 20 trillion dollars next year could this cause a fiscal crisis. >> head wlong in this direction so interesting how little we talked about issues cbo estimates come out we see deficits up now for the first time in several years 600 billion dollars almost, heading toward over a trillion dollars within nine years, that is a real problem,
trillion-dollar deficits as far as eye can see is a real problem, and but this can't doesn't seem to get traction candidates or voters. >> i think interesting another issue of messaging so hard anyone under a trillion dollars used -- fatigue about deficit i don't know how or who is going to do this but it is important they make that relevant what does it mean for me? >> talking about the deficit going up, he did it in 1992. >> quite well. and nobody cared, because federal reserve kept interest rates so low, that people are not worried because just simply because the interest expense has not sky being rocketed national debt doubled under president obama because may be able interest rates rock bottlom he have levels nobody cares. >> entitlements, security,
medicare, medicaid. >> the conversation about that. >> half the budget, every close to half the budget is medicare and social security. >> a increase from medicaid medicare social security if you don't do something about those doesn't matter what you do nothing else matters. >> see if this becomes an election issue, up next created one of the most popular social media seats in the world now may bring ironman to life mark zuckerberg next. >> ambition timeless the watch that hopes to change game of lur luxury in the studio back in a minute. ♪

highlighting huma abedin's security concerns about a trip to russia. >> it's hard to keep up. [laughter] >> i mean, for heaven sakes, thousands of e-mails discovered that they didn't turn over, now the state department says they'll get around to releasing her schedule in december. maria: all of this as hewlett-packard enterprise meg whitman goes on the campaign trail for clinton. first republican to stump for clinton. and after mondelez says it's no longer interested in the chocolate giant. and getting there is often the hardest part, what you need to know to make your next trip stress-free. the markets are searching for direction. we're searching for lower averages. investors are waiting on economic data later this week,
particularly friday's government report on august jobs. in europe, we're seeing gains across the board. fractional moves although the dax in germany is up 1%. and the rest of the average is higher, if not strongly, in the plus column. in asia, mixed action. hang seng up better than 1%. we kick it off with the latest development in hillary clinton's e-mail scandal. new e-mails released by conservative group citizen's united show a connection between the clinton foundation and the state department. here is a look at one of the newly released e-mails. it shows clinton aide huma abedin expressing e-mail security concerns to justin cooper, an aide to former president bill clinton. abideen says those of us in the russia travelling party will be leaving blackberries on the airplane, once we touch down in moscow tonight. cooper, are they taking them from the u.s. because of the clinton e-mail.com should work? >> abideen, it's for security
reasons, i don't want to use that one either. maria: joining us now in citizen's united, david, thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. maria: we all know and i've said this a lot on the program, government employees are told do not bring your blackberries to russia or china, as soon as you enter air space, those countries, they have access to all of your stuff, whether it's your calendar, your contacts, your inbox. how many of her e-mails were similar to that? because we know that is an issue. that's not really the issue that you're talking about? >> no, what this-- what this e-mail is just a snapshot. it really shows two things, one, that they were concerned about security, and they were concerned about being hacked in these countries and this is from a top state department advisor of hillary clinton, huma abedin, and we see what hillary clinton did, she did the opposite. she didn't care, she had the homemade server in her basement, really disregarding all security protocol. so, we showed the
contradictions here and then we also show in this one e-mail the closeness in which they're talking about the state department employee to the foundation. they're actually telling the foundation in this e-mail, hey, we're going to be off the grid for a couple of days via e-mail, use the cell phones if you need to get us. so, it just continues to show, we don't see the separation between the state department and the foundation as we need to. maria: and i wonder if you think that's resonating with people because that's really where the issues are, right? i mean, the e-mails show that, that, for example, huma abedin had a job at the foundation while she's also working at the state department with hillary clinton and there are instances where hillary clinton as secretary of state did things for other countries and then saw money go into the clinton foundation. >> that's exactly right. and that's really our point and that's why we have really conducted a two and a half year litigation strategy to try to get these documents before the american people, before
election day, an and truth be told we're under court order to get document productions from the state department all the way through 2018 and that's the outrage of this, is the state department has acted as really, an arm of the clinton campaign and they've really slow-walked this litigation, used every dell dilatory tactic. and this document production, we're constantly getting material, but we're getting it for the next couple of years. maria: wow. >> one of the things i've been seeing in the polls, there's somewhat of an e-mail fatigue from the american voter, slightly immune to hearing about it. i think it feels like there needs to be a fresh message. if the e-mail fatigue is real, how do we explain to voters, what's going on in the easiest way? >> well, first of all, i haven't seen that kind of data yet. we're looking at polling as well and we believe that the
american people, as they become more familiar with the pay for play opportunities that-- and the opportunities for foreign governments, foreign entities and corporations to give money to the foundation in order to circumvent whatever types of ethics rules they may have in giving directly to bill clinton, in essence, as a paid speech, we have e-mails showing that, hey, give the money to the foundation so no one will see it as income to bill clinton. these types of things. the american people are tired of. one of the reasons that donald trump is the nominee. they're tired, the american people tend to be tired of the politics as usual, that revolving door of washington that, where you work in the government and then you run out and you make a lot of money. dagen: david to that point, american politics, not to excuse what was going on at the clinton foundation and the state department at the same time, but people in this country give money to political candidates for access. that's what they expect when they give somebody some money.
explain to me how this is different because again, people are looking for the actual pay to play where somebody received, a favor directly because they gave the clintons money through the foundation. >> sure, just yesterday we released some documents, e-mails showing that corporate heads that were giving millions of dollars, anywhere from one to 10 million dollars to the clinton foundation were going through the foundation to gain access to state lunches. or to other secretary of state events or with the president. and so, they were using the access to the foundation to gain access that other people wouldn't have. and that's what is very troubling and it's really the tip of the iceberg. we just got that batch of documents last week and we're analyzing the donors in it and the folks that are involved, but now we have to go through and look for any policy changes or any favors they've received.
>> what is the explanation from hillary clinton when these stories are presented to her? >> well, you know, clearly secretary clinton hasn't answered many of these questions and it's one of the reasons that i and many others are calling for her to hold a press conference. i actually believe she should hold a joint press conference with bill clinton to explain exactly how the foundation was operated and how it will operate in the future. i think clarity and i think really, a bright light test on the foundation is what's required right now. between now and election day. we can't do this after election day and by the way, as i said, we're under court order to get documents from the state department for the next couple of years and i worry that we're going to get the worst material from hillary clinton's standpoint post-election. maria: like what? what could be worse? >> we're not-- the state department gets to choose what to give us. thech to give us by court order a volume.
they have to meet a certain volume per month on these schedules, but they don't have to give us the best material, meaning the most damning and historically, whether it was the '90s, the rose law firm billing records that hillary clinton hid in the white house for two years while under subpoena or today slow-walking the production, we'll see this post election. maria: and we're seeing all of this and running for president and is actually in the lead. i don't know how you feel about it, but the idea her aide huma abedin and has been so so many years. humma's mother edited this that suggested that 9/11 had it coming to it and opposed women's rights arguing empowerment of women has more power than berths. and is it extraordinary to you
that she has this job next to hillary clinton? >> it's extraordinary she's still in some way attached to the biggest scumbags who ever walked on the planet earth and that's her husband, anthony weiner. they're still married. i'm going to call it, i know that that donald trump was criticized for bringing this up, but it begs the question of anybody surrounding hillary clinton, and i think it goes to judgment and it goes to judgment of the clintons that he was still in some way connected. maria: he says the picture with the baby next to him, i mean, it's just-- . dagen: i don't mean to digress, but in all my years of work as a professional, i have never met somebody who was nastier and more repugnant and ugly to other people than that man and that's in a professional setting. maria: and it's called karma. [laughter] before you go. >> wow. maria: we digress here. before you go, in terms of this information, connecting the dots and resonating with viewers, when you're a loyalist for hillary clinton, you don't
care about any of this stuff. >> that's right. that's true and that's a great point. look, what my job is is to tell the american people what the facts are and let them make their decisions. i believe that there's, you know, a lot of americans who are still undecided. they're looking at donald trump skeptically and decide whether he can be president. they're looking at her and deciding whether she's honest and trustworthy enough to be president. so i think both of them have, you know, tall bars to get over, but it's going to be the undecided voters. those voters that are open-minded to this type of information that are going to make the difference in november. maria: thank you, david bossie there. the u.s. welcoming its 10,000th syrian refugee. it may be only the beginning. we're hearing numbers like 85,000. what you need to know. back in a minute. >> welcome back to another

it's christians. but these 10,000 syrian refugees who have come to america and change the numbers slightly it's 9,945 muslims, it's 52 christians. okay. maria: wow. stuart: that's the proportion. there's a story there. our intrepid producers came up with the numbers, these are genuine numbers, so here we have the importation of muslims from syria with the exclusion of genuine refugees known as christians. they are the ones beheaded, burned alive, driven out and persecuted backwards and forwards, but they don't get to come to america. no, muslims do. there's something wrong with this picture and i'd like a little more honesty about what really happened in syria. where are the refugees coming from? they started out because of obama's failure to enforce the red line. he allowed assad to stay in power and now we've got 4.8 million refugees all over the world and trying to come here. what a disgrace. that's what it is.

candidates on the campaign trail and the advertising during the primaries against trump didn't work. >> didn't work. dagen: she's been advertising nonstop tens of millions since mid may. has it moved the needle for her that much? not really. >> i think it's on-line stuff that matters now more than ever before and i think that's why the whole investment in the analytics that donald trump has made is smart. maria: and you're a pollster, but you don't think that people are telling the truth when people ask who you're going to vote for. you don't believe what's in the polls even though it's tight. >> i've seen over and over donald trump overperformed the polls even in the primaries and a study now how people respond over the phone versus on-line and we're going to see a difference. people are afraid to say out loud they support donald trump. maria: and my favorite story of the day was the shakedown going on and it's a shakedown by the eu. $14 billion from apple. and look, this is the kind of thing that will force a country to say, you know what? i don't want to be a part of
the eu and that eu unravelling perhaps continues. dagen: exactly. 'cause the rest of them are picking on ireland. trying to do what's best for its country. maria: no wonder, everybody wants a headquarter there. thank you, dagen, brian, lee, that will do it for us, "varney & company" begins right now. stuart, overto you. stuart: thank you. trump keeps up the attack line and it's working. there is a new trend in the polls. good morning, everyone. let's get to the polls first. details coming, but here is the bottom line. trump is narrowing the gap and it's independents who are swinging back to him. the monmouth national poll shows hillary clinton's lead cut in after. she's out fund raising and quiet, forced back on defense. top aide huma abedin separates from her serial sexting husband
