6:34 am
assistant districtor for the fbi's counterterrorism, counterterrorism division, terry. terry, your thoughts on this matter and the allegations that there's tapes out there. >> well, i guess, dagen, that if there are tapes out there, it'd be best to have them and see what's on them. i think we already foe what's on them if they exist. we know what director comey said and so we pretty much have already all made up our own minds as to whether anything on there constitutes some sort of crime. i'm actually much more concerned and quite frankly don't understand why we are not talking a lot more about that new york times article in february of -- february 14th of this year. that article according to mr. comey in his own words in the main wasn't true. i thought all of this started because of russian collusion and the whole idea that perhaps president trump colluding with the russians and i think we need to know a lot more about that article. we need to know about the three
6:35 am
or four sources inside government somewhere and their motives and if we want to answer the question about russia collusion, that's where we go to get that answer, not those tapes and i don't know why we are not working and worrying about that right now. dagen: terry, it's mitch. >> el. >> let's say there are no tapes, this issue ever go away? there's always going to be another theory after another theory. does the issue go away? >> well, that's really a great question and here is why, i don't think the issues are ever going to go away. they are going to come up with one issue after another if what i feel is correct and i actually feel president trump is the one who is the victim of a russian active campaign and could very well be that this is a political thing involving the democratic party, maybe. i think if there's russian collusion and russian intelligence behind this, all of this looks much more when you look at testified as it points in that direction and looks like
6:36 am
the victim campaign intend today destabilize our country and basically stop presidency which goes to the answer to your question, these issues aren't going to go away if that's the case, they will keep coming up one and then another. >> what would be the reasons to hold the tapes back if there are tapes? >> well, there wouldn't be any reason. if there are tapes, let them go. i mean, i think we are wonder if it's something he said but if there are tapes let them go. it benefits to let them go and we can all make up our own mind. dagen: terry, before we move on, we wouldn't be talking about this tapes, these tapes if president trump hasn't brought them up again on friday. >> well, he brings things up all of the time. dagen: but it hurts him, but it hurts him. it doesn't help. >> it doesn't and i think this is what we should expect if we are going to put a nonpolitician type person. we are pttyuch wings it when
6:37 am
heoe down and tks and i'm certainly willing to see that happens. that's what we get when we chose somebody that hasn't been around washington, d.c. this is the problem that we have in the first place with the fact that director comey, if nobody else was going to do it should have talk today president trump about the way you deal with the fbi because no president deals with the fbi the way he kind of did and i don't think he'd ever had any discussions with anyone about that. you've got to be very careful if you're going to sit there and talk to the fbi director about anything. this is not new. this is an open-secret in washington, d.c. that for eight years fbi director louis free and president bill clinton had a warfare going, they did not talk and all because president clinton felt slided on something that the director did. this is common. dagen: thank you so much for being here. we have breaking news to bring you. we have been watching it, the

this? >> well, listen, as you know, i've worked with jeff for over a decade and spent four or five years with him on president obama's advisory council. listen, just a thought leader, he had to go through incredible thought decade of transforming ge away from ge capitol and back as your prior guests have cited. i just tuned in but as prior guests mentioned into really the three-core business, industrial, health care and i think that during that transformation he took the company from, you know, where they were losing billions of dollars to now an incredible well-capitalized company and i think like all ceo's sometimes it's time to pass the torch. you take the company to these transformations and based on what i read about flannery it seems like he's absolutely the right guy and so i think it seems like it's going to be a very smooth transition. with respect to nelson and ed
6:57 am
gardner and them, listen, they work hard to make sure for their investors that they are forcing decisions at these type of large companies, whether they end up going to a split, who knows, obviously it didn't work with pepsi and pepsi is flourishing. i think time will tell whether this company will stay as one now that ge capital. dagen: robert, that was incredible analysis that you gave us in about a minute and we thank you for that. we wish you were here in person. >> me too, thank you, dagen. appreciate it. dagen: we will be right back, everybody. liberty mutual stood with us when a fire destroyed everything in our living room.

7:01 am
off the russia election controversy. >> i'm calling for an end to the informations of president trump's colluding on -- with the russians. this needs to end. nobody has come forward with any evidence that there's been collusion between the trump campaign and the russians and it keeps persisting so it's time to put an end to this. dagen: latest on the renewed agenda push ahead. futures are showing losses across the board. another selloff at least it looks like it's going to happen on technology stocks, nasdaq 100 futures down. those winners this year, incredible winners like facebook and amazon and netflix and the google parent company, they tumbled on friday. in europe stocks also lower across the board in england france and germany there. about 1% loss in france and in asia overnight, same story, nothing but red across the board with the biggest loser being the

7:03 am
industrial complex sort of changing so he had to navigate a lot of major disruption in traditional businesses. >> he did. in his defense he may have inherited as you say a lot of this, there's too many businesses across the board. maybe we need to consolidate and selloff more of these divisions to narrow focus. >> ge if you look backwards, looks like a private equity company with all of the portfolio companies and the private equity model it's private, you can do a lot of different things when you're a public company. dagen: the old thought is that ge is a guadalajara of the u.s. economy and to my point, the s&p 50 a gage of the company is up in the time that ge stock is down. >> at a different part of business cycle it was probably the belt weather. to jeff immelt's credit, he did guide them through the crisis.
7:04 am
>> they also got a lot of capital infusions during the financial crisis. >> it did. that's that. dagen: during the bull market ge shares actually did beat s&p and the dow, man, it got tough for the company and coming up this morning the report on all things oil and gas, fox news senior analyst judge andrew napolitano and golf tech ceo and former presidential candidate ron paul. president trump holding his first meeting with a full cabinet today. this is the gop pushes both health care and tax reform. majority saying both are a priority, watch. >> cutting taxes is going to inject so much momentum into this economy, create a lot of jobs, we also have the health care bill moving through the senate and i know they're trying
7:05 am
to get the text finalize so they can get to a vote by july 4th and i think both are important to do and to do them as soon as we can. dagen: joining me now florida congressman ron desantos. are you going to work through the recess to get this done? >> i think we have to. you hear in washington, oh, there's all these things on the agenda, the appropriations in addition which you mentioned and we just have so few legislative days. well, there's nothing written in stone that you have to take five weeks in august and early september, so my view would be we have to make the most of our opportunities now and to kind of cut out and combat without getting our work done would be a mistake, normally i would say it's better for the country when congress isn't in session because they can't do damage, but in this case we have a number of things lined up and i think the american people are not going to say, they just ran out of time, they tried. we have to get it done and
7:06 am
whatever it takes. dagen: congressman, it's mitch. >> el. >> with a fine identity number of days left and they have to start prioritizing what can be done and rock paper scissors game here, which of those becomes the priority? >> well, i think that -- i don't know that think of it that way because procedurally it's part of the reconciliation and you have to do that in order to go on to the next budget which would have the instructions to write the tax reform. i think you have to do both of those. i think you can do both of those. you know, the dodd-frank piece would be good for the economy, moving away from too big to fail and really lifting the burden on small and medium-sized financial institution who is have gotten clubbed by dodd-frank. the issue is what in the bill
7:07 am
would get 60 votes in the senate and it's not clear to me that there's a path for all of it, maybe some of it, but clearly i think it would be a very good thing to get that done. >> if we are lifting some of the financial regulations off of the financial institutions or the big banks and dodd-frank, what -- do you think that would be a positive for financials in freeing up more capital for them in the long run? >> oh, yeah, i think even in the short run if you look at the number of new banks that have come into existence since dodd-frank, and the biggest banks by the way have gotten bigger, they don't have the regulatory burden but they have means to deal with it. i think it hurts competition in that industry and, yes, i do think that you have the ability, when lending particularly for the small businesses that are kind of the life blood of all of
7:08 am
our communities, i think that is really been one of the worst things about dodd-frank. some of the big deals still get done but, man, we want a financial system where those, that money is available for people. dagen: congressman, much is made about president trump's problems, some issues, self-created, all of the drama coming out of the white house, senate leader mitch mcconnell wanting the president to provide less drama, if you will. but i point to the drama within your own party, where you have senators and people in the house that cannot agree how are you going to pay tax reform, are you going to do tax reform and in the senate you see division as they try to move ahead on the health care bill that you passed miraculously but they some senators in the republican party, they don't want to give up the medicaid hand outs, they are making issues about the opioid crisis and coverage for
7:09 am
rehab, if you will. is part -- is a bigger problem in essence the division within the party and not what happens out of the white house? >> well, i think that having debate within the party, i think that's a healthy. i think that's how you arrive at good outcomes. the taxes is a good example. a lot of us are very concerned about having a border adjustment tax in there. we think it's bad economics, we think that it will potential poy and healthy to have debates. the problem is when there's big campaign in campaign rhetoric and actions in washington and we were very strong for years running against obamacare now we are in a position where the house obviously passed a bill that senate is doing some negotiation to just not get that done and walk away. that would be a huge mistake. so i think it's just understanding the promises you've made, not letting the
7:10 am
swamp and the environment in the swamp distort that and just keep the rhetoric set on true north. to the extent we don't do that, i think that's when you can run into some problems. dagen: congressman, y'all might as well be running on fan boats, though. from the outside looking in, it looks like the same it was last october. >> well, i think, though, part of it is the narrative that gets spun in washington and i think one to have fall-outs from the comey stuff, a lot of the narrative that the media has been spinning about the president is a false narrative. comey was telling him behind the scenes you're not under investigation, you're not under investigation and publicly comey was being coy about it and i think that was very damaging to the president, to our agenda because it sucked a lot of the oxygen and i think it's highly
7:11 am
irresponsible of comey. i think we are beyond that in the hearing. we know that the president not under investigation. we know that there's not any evidence from the russia stuff and so i think if these committees can kind of bring this to a conclusion then i think they'll be more interest in some of the policy agenda. dagen: just really quickly, i said that last week during the hearings and after the hearings, i said that the republican senators sitting in the panel fed into the comey narrative that they didn't push him hard enough and questioned him hard enough. i know time was of the essence, the hearing quite frankly, they needed a lot more time to bare down on james comey but you did not hear that -- you wouldn't expect to hear frit the democrats but you didn't hear frit the republicans, just pressing him on why didn't you resign, why didn't you say something to president trump, why didn't you report this to anybody at the justice department if he felt compromised by trump's comments about michael flynn. all of that, i blame the republicans in part.
7:12 am
>> well, it's true. i mean, you noticed he said he felt queasy when attorney general lynch told him to refer as a matter and he didn't do anything to raise a red flag, he exonerated hillary himself because he felt lynch was conflicted but never offer today resign but i think one of the things that's coming through testimony is he tends to do what's best for him and image and i think his testimony has left a lot of questions and if he comes back to congress and maybe the senate or house judiciary committees, i think that there's going to be a lot of things he's going to have to answer for and so the extent he was going to be this star witness, i'm just not sure that that it was case at all. dagen: right, even senator dianne feinstein long-time democrat raising the issue of a senate panel looking into loretta lynch and what she told james comey about the hillary clinton investigation. congressman desantis, thank you so much. we will see you soon.

7:23 am
into the peak summer driving season. the gasoline demand about to surge and with oil down at a level that it's a critical range and so into that wall street, wall street went all in on higher oil prices. they were wrong, they've reset and there's a lot of bullets sitting on the side of the market so between oil 45, 4 7, i do expect to hold going in the summer. beyond the summer, is another question. >> hey, stephen it's michael block. we can talk about supply and demand. we saw invent other data which windshield smashing bugs, frankly. one issue and the saudis are not the -- you know, are not the lever they used to be but there's some concern i'm getting from some clients that the tension between saudis and qatar is undermining the viability of
7:24 am
the opec agreement. if there is, you know, piece so to speak, do you think there can be a catalyst to the upside? >> not really, michael. the rift between saudi and qatar is actually a bearish event. qatar accounts for less than 2% of opec's production. if qatar were in the united states it would the fourth largest producer in the united states alone. from a geopolitical standpoint what we are seeing now is once again never far from the service is a 1400-year-old, shall we say the 50-year-old and, of course, with sunni saudi taken into the iranian backed qatar shea, this is a rift that's going to put into question the cohesion of opec. if you were bullish oil with regard to opec, you have to be very concern because the cartel failed miserably to balance the market in the first six months
7:25 am
this year and that's the problem because i said earlier, the demand for crude in the united states has never been stronger, what is going to happen in the months ahead regardless of any sort of unity back within the cartel when over the next couple of months demand begins to fall back off here specially in the united states and the u.s. producer is still going to put on an extra 200,000-dollar-barrels a day by the end to have year. at this point we are still looking at a market that's well glutted. so you have to ask yourself, if opec could not bounce the market when demand has never been stronger, how are they going to balance it when the demand falls out while shell producers adding barrels. >> is there a price range where they can turn the switch on and off and right now 46 and a half, but where is the price point where they stop production, where is the price point when they start production? >> well, that curve is starting
7:26 am
to fall further and further lower of oil bull. what we can say with confidence by looking at the rig counts, you look at the upstream guys are doing in terms of ahead. a lot of production back and a lot of oil in the 55, 57-dollar range and the cost cover of what we are seeing, they are coming online making money and we keep on lowering the bar here. where we are now 45-47 you would expect to see some of that production curtail and if we do see further weakness as you get through the peak summer demand season, clearly this would have an impact. to answer your question to be clear on this, 55, 56-dollar oil
7:27 am
is like ringing the dinner bill for producers and anything between that and $45 you start to see diminish in returns on production. so it wouldn't be until you saw production -- excuse me price well below $40 that you would see any sort of significant knock-onto pullback introduction. dagen: great analysis as always. you covered the world in terms of oil, stephen thank you so much. turmoil at the top of uber, key executive to resign today, what the trouble means for the ride-sharing giant? and attorney general jeff session heading to the hot seat tomorrow to testify about the russian meddling probe. but will the public be inviteun? judge andrew napolitano weighs in. that's next. ded to be.

7:34 am
what we don't know yet is whether the american people well actually cure that testimony. watch. don't know whether it's can be public and i challenge the jurisdiction to some extent. i am on both committees as you know. i believe the judiciary committee has the oversight responsibility for the justice department and therefore it is very fitting for the attorney general to appear there. i've written two letters to the senator grassley suggesting that. >> we've not disclosed and finalized this. we are still in this final conversation. join us out to weigh in do think you will be testifying in public or private. >> it is a little bit of an inside the beltway in the weeds.
7:35 am
my own view is that he is right. the senate judiciary committee has lawful oversight review. it is an unusual testimony because he's not cannot be testifying as the attorney general telling them about a probe that he is conducting. he will be testified as a witness about what he saw and heard that is fraught with danger for him. should he ever had to become a witness again. has he already spoken to the person for which he may be a witness. this is a very unusual situation. he is conducting an investigation that jeff sessions is prohibited from being involved in. if he is going to dispute some
7:36 am
of the things that the former fbi director james comey says, as i can have a political effect. he supposedly didn't tell the committee about all this. i love that you can laugh about it. it is also uncharted territory. the president and the attorney general and the former attorney general in the former fbi director are in at this moment. the director comey raised that question.
7:37 am
he said that the fbi leadership before his sessions at recusal was aware of the fact. it just to raise an issue that certainly he needs to address. you ask a very prudently in the intro to the segment why didn't james comey tell his boss jeff sessions about the memos involved. if he believed that the president had ordered him that the president as we know didn't use the word order to lay off of general flynn. the answer i was aware of metals that went to the attorney general. he was good to be out of the case. and we do not want to prejudice him or it by telling
7:38 am
him that. the command in terms of james comey saying to someone this was sent to me by president trump the hope, and the problem there. rob rubenstein does it come in until the end of april. if it was a problem why did he not speak out. i thought his testimony was credible and compelling. and they have an opportunity to address. what was new to the public but not new to both of us. was a criticism of loretta lynch.
7:39 am
in the wake of the testimony they instructed him to downplay the significance. he was running as the judge pointed out. the senators on both sides of the aisle are now calling for an investigation watch this. >> i would have a queasy feeling as though to be candid with you. we to know more about this. that is a judiciary committee to take a look at that. they have become a political office. i want to get to the bottom of that. what could possibly come out of any investigation. he has laid out a case that she made decisions that moved the levers of power in the justice department based on the political needs of barack obama in the clinton
7:40 am
campaign. the only evidence he is given for that are two things is still unexplained. it's probably unexplainable in that context. but the effort to get the fbi to use the same language that the clinton campaign was using to characterize the fbi investigation the language which is alien to law enforcement. we don't do matters we do criminal investigations. it might very will be misconduct in office. the use of federal law enforcement for a domestic political purpose would constitute the misconduct. as a result of his testimony there are at least two or three more investigations which will commence. but the newest one is the one were talking about is of obama people not trump people.

a potential resignation of chief business officer. a leave of absence for calendar comes at a time of both personal and professional turmoil. the 44-year-old's mother recently died in a boating accident. the uber employees in 2013 was really a stand. he was also seen in the video yelling at an uber driver he could resign as early as today. that is according to a report from the wall street journal. you will remember he suggested that they hire a team of opposition to dig into the personal lives of a journalist who reported negatively about uber. it said to be related to a internal investigation. holder's investigation holders investigation comes after 20 manager and other employees were fired last week for claims of harassment.
