are looking at that. not considering the fact ceos are getting more. they will be looking at the bottom line. my paycheck went out. this might be a mistake. the popularity has grown. i understand according to a "new york times" poll, 51% of americans approve of this. this increase in popularity among among democrats comes to my party may need to look at that and refocus on some of the more divisive issues coming from the administration like the social issues. lauren: john karma what you think the democratic strategy will be come midterms. robyn was saved in the near term is pulled of a fox news of the shows 53% are up to mystic now about the economy. those are pretty good numbers. >> ask him if democrats want to run on the economy at the loser. thoughtful democrats in congress, the smart ones realize they can't run against that.

i'm lauren simonetti. trying to guess where pitt and connell mcshane filling in for you. i do remember the first half of the show selected back and everything that happened for the next half of the show. lauren: at 530 basically on the.now. kind of accessed at the time. we have a long-awaited democrat intelligence memo released to counter the so-called republican nuñez memo. arguing the fbi in and justice department acted appropriately and did not abuse surveillance power to attract campaign. connell: kelly wright is with us this morning. good morning, kelly. reporter: good to see you both. hope you're doing well. this is the memo, 10 pages in no case for the american people in terms of dealing with dueling memos. the 10 page document is a speech republican claims the fbi justice department abused their powers to conduct surveillance of trump campaign aide carter
page in devin nunes, chairman of the house intelligence committee responded to democrat. >> legal political party in this country saying don't worry american public. it is okay. we do this all the time. we'll dig up up dirt on her opponent come and get it from russian, bread and take it to the fbi had opened up an investigation into another campaign. >> the democrats allegations however about the fbi justice department failing to tell the fisa court to campaign and dnc funded the trump dossier written by british spy christopher steel. president trump in the white house say the democrats memo is advised. >> they were not able to rebut the points made in the nuñez memo appeared to nuñez memo to the president is right to memo is the best. it doesn't undercut serious questions raised about the fbi and department of justice conduct the year before last in
this fisa warrant in this investigation altogether. >> democrats say the memos indicates the fbi. >> i'm not surprised the president doesn't like it. i'm not surprised the white house tried to bury the memo responds as long as they could. but it's important for the public to see the facts the fbi acted appropriately. they are not partisan deep status the president apparently would like the public to believe. >> he says the committee will continue to investigate russian brushed interference in the 2016 campaign that the members of congress return today and continue to follow the developments of this story as more and more details come out. connell: kelly wright in d.c. president trump's legal team in the meantime is waiting for having testified before a special counsel robert mueller of questions i limited the scope and don't amount to a potential perjury trap.
for more on this connector and a former prosecutor david brunel and we could talk about the mental kelly wright reported on as well. that has always been a concern for people have been speaking to the president has testified, no matter what side you're on from a legal case, do you might be walking into a perjury trap. there were reports is considering some testimony whether written or oral we don't know. but would you advise them to do? >> the same thing. either not provide a statement of provides has been limited in scope were written. last week we saw yet another plea, rick gates, lying to federal investigators. papadopoulos floodgates. this is mueller's ml in the investigation. he has to be careful. connell: normal people who don't have a legal background might react and say if i have nothing to hide, why would they testify? >> that is public perception and
the unfortunate thing because what we talk about is a constitutional protection that everyone in every state in the united states enjoys. if it goes to trial, if any case goes to trial, and feature it has to be instructed that she cannot take the evidence someone did not give the statement as evidence of guilt. >> what you think he'll do before before we move onto the memo? >> in all likelihood he will get censored a statement. it will be written i limited in scope because when we talk about the public perceptions, that is different than the constitutional protections. he has a concern he wants to give reelect them that has to be be a driving force as well. connell: back to a kelly wright was reporting on the democratic memo over the weekend with a number reductions included in that follows up on the gop memo from devin nunes. i'm sure those on the right and
left will retreat to their was at the corners and claimed victory or defeat in this won't change much. legally, what did you take away from the release of memos in terms of how the process was handled in obtaining the warrant to conduct surveillance on this guy, carter page? >> i definitely still have a problem to how was explained. still dossier was funded here this is getting lost in translation in the media. the actual quote they use, the fbi speculate the identified u.s. person was likely looking for information that could be used to discredit one's campaign. that is not enough. the nuñez memo says that they should've used actual clinton campaign and dnc identifiers as opposed to this. this for me doesn't get it. it's not definitive. he speculates. >> it's interesting you bring that up. i don't know how much experience you have but maybe critics and a little more.
the argument from the democrats is that it's kind of common is seen as political, but not saying how is political. you are saying that not common practice? >> common practice in street crimes in everyday cases, but this is not them. this is very different during the presidential campaign. this is the opponent. i believe this rises to the level of something greater they should've been used in more information should have been provided. >> and for the analysis this morning. david brunel, good to see you. connell: challenges continue as it announces a major earnings setback. connell: one thing after another. tracee carrasco on this and more with the headlines. enacted morning. things are going from bad to worse for ge. it plans to restate the last two years of results.
