a spy planted in his presidential campaign. "the wall street journal" has identified stephan help her come at a foreign policy scholar at the university of cambridge. the doj responded by asking his watchdogs, the inspector general to include type with fbi surveillance methods. rod rosenstein saying if anyone did infiltrator surveilled participants in the presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action. devin nunes also weighing in on this. >> if they ran a spy ring or informant ring and they were paying people within the term campaign, if any of that is true, that is an absolute redline. >> for more, let's bring in attorney david bruno. good morning. >> good morning, cheryl. cheryl: let's talk about the timing of all of this. rudy giuliani has said moeller
told him the portion that involve president trump would be by september 1st to be decided to speak with moeller. that's a good question for the legal perspective. is it a good idea for the president to sit down with moeller? >> i've been on the show numerous times saying absolutely not. he doesn't know the questions. i'm not privy to the communications between giuliani and mueller us to the questions in the scope of it. criminal defense, the answer is no. >> let's talk about the other issue. could all of this backfire? do you think moeller could do something that could expand the investigation and find something in an interview with the president that could expand investigation? >> it's also been reported mueller would not indict tram. but that does not mean that any of his family members or associates within the campaign can be charged or investigated.
it all depends on the questions in the information president trump would provide in a statement. cheryl: is gotten this report from "the wall street journal" about this alleged spy is one word, and format or whatever you will. rod rosenstein is coming to action right away saying we are going to look at this and investigate. we saw president trance treat that i showed you at the beginning of this segment. do you think this could be a turning point in the investigation to the president? >> sure, he's going to formally make a recommendation today. it was interesting to see rosenstein jumped out in front of it instead eager for today's or general. it will be interesting to see if that's enough for the president publicly here. the inspector general does not have prosecuting powers. they do not have the ability to compel witnesses that don't work for the fed. they are simply a doj watchdog. they have independent internal
powers to investigate. i don't think this will be over in what the president or congress will want from the doj on this point. cheryl: you don't. the question is the mid-terms. obviously we don't want to see the investigation hanging over the midterms of political purpose. what about the issue of barack obama. if indeed we find out at some point it was the obama administration that directed this informant to infiltrate the term campaign, could president of barack obama be called into this potentially to testify? >> this is a page out of the federal playbook when it comes to criminal investigations. let's be clear it's not using an informant are cooperating with us to further a criminal investigation. we know from the papadopoulos information in that plea that an investigation started in july. if this is the case, it's not a
crime in and of itself. however, if it is used improperly, to target or bring down the campaign, there could be question of conduct. cheryl: david bruno, thank you for getting up with us. >> always a pleasure. gerri: hillary clinton still on her so talks, but this time with a shocking admission. >> no, i'm not over it. i still think about the 2016 election. i think about the mistakes i made. gerri: hillary's latest jab at the white house. a wet and murky weekend here in the northeast. amen to that. is brighter weather on the way? janice dean will be here with their forecasts. the u.s. stock index futures to open up 225 points. the nasdaq up 50. good morning shaping up.

spn contributor art hogan, chief market strategist at b. riley fdr. good morning to you both. i will start with you. treasury secretary mnuchin fabius got the framework of a deal with china putting the trade war on hold. how significant is this and what does it mean for markets and the economy? when should he hear this now from mnuchin verse. >> of this report we've made very meaningful progress that we've agreed on a framework which is important to understand. the framework includes their agreement to substantially reduce the trade deficit by increasing purchases of goods. gerri: jonas, what is it mean for markets and the economy? >> it's good for the short run stocks and bonds. investors don't want a trade war with china. it doesn't mean it's good policy to back away the full d.c. and
give up, but we also don't want terrorists. they don't want china backing off on purchases as we borrow more and more money. so what is possible this looks like we are, not going to be as aggressive as we could be. today's pick could change as a temporary situation and they seem to be getting more aggressive. gerri: backing off a little bit. art, to you. we had mixed messages over the weekend from the administration and the u.s. trade rep said very same terrorists are still an important tool. will these mixed signals constraining a stockmarket website? the gallup 200 points come in the indication for the opening. what will it mean for traders? how are they view conflicting stories? >> the biggest thing that's gotten in the way of market moving forward is fairly trade mistake or trade policy mistake. any modicum of good news we get, and a sense we are negotiating
and not just going about this is going to be positive for the market. what the market is done with their first-quarter earnings season that's nothing short of spectacular in constant fear will make a huge mistake on trade at this feels like we will put a better place is in the marco celebrate that. gerri: moving on to another topic. in 18 years or 10 year, the 10 year yield committee on the treasury is about that from bonds, on bonds from seven major developed countries. what does that mean? are we no longer the safe haven? why should we read into this? >> it could be good. could be bad. all the sudden interest rates go above 3% of the relic okay we are not going to mess around china. 3% is not allowed. but compared to what france or germany are all the other major economies far left. the positive is your emerging
markets bar at much higher because they have higher interest rates and higher growth. so we are some ways the trade in a dead economy. firing up a rates was good, and in japan would have the the last 30 years. you want to have growth. we have grossed no faster than those economies or governments pay more. they make a day of his investors are concerned we are borrowing too much. we are cutting taxes, raising spending. that means we are borrowing more and they pay more in the reward them for that. a negative and cheryl: the government borrowing more. the last budget for the boundary site i think. onto yet another topic this morning. maduro winning the election in venezuela. all as i'm not. no surprise that he won, but he realized for the venezuelan people with an economy on the brink of collapse. oil prices already up about a third of a percent.
71 played 55. where does the oil go from here and what is the broader market and economic impacts? >> venezuela has not talked about many overall supply and demand in the global energy market only because their supply has been depleting over the last five years. it's amazing how little they put into their infrastructure and the amount that's really gone on there. when we think about the energy market in general, we are in balance in the first quarter with the global supply and demand balance is fair. much less from venezuela and much more from somewhere in the middle east is to take up in iran. >> lots going on. thank you to you both for coming on today. it all seems to be pretty positive this far. thank you. vacation searches which could be a big indicator of a strong
economy. gerri: tracee carrasco joins us with more on that another headlines. good morning. >> good morning. according to one indicator. they rose 10% in april on a year-over-year basis according to data track research using google trends data. this is a good sign for the economy as they are pretty hesitant to take time off from work. they fight for first place in the condiment business. >> mayonnaise maker is fighting for a spot in your sandwich. how many vestas and crack times as miracle with doing all they can to compete against each other. the smaller brands and healthier americans in the battle uses simple ingredients and cage free eggs along with mao catchup combination that came out a

as the u.s. willing to open up discussions with allies to figure out something we could all agree upon? >> i definitely think we would be open for that are probably less so with asian banks and businesses which create a car about two u.s. tensions. but the west as one voice upon the arendt's nuclear program as well as regional friends. as a likely american diplomats are already in talks with the european counterparts on how to address the totality. train to the european council spoke up on this issue last week. listen to the tone of what he had to say here. >> as for the iran nuclear deal, we agreed unanimously that they will stay in the agreement as long as -- [inaudible] >> their rhetoric is if iran is then, we iran. where does that leave the u.s.?
>> if no one changes we are in a collision course with europe looking to use financial warfare against iran. we want the european union to join us in the act of state-sponsored terrorism. we don't want to be in a position where they use that against us. nice to be a combination in the next phase of economic arm-twisting and handholding. >> one of the biggest concerns and bigger reasons that we took ourselves out of the iran agreement was ballistic missiles. not so much about the nuclear technology, the ballistic missiles that threatens our allies in that region. do you think that discussion could be something or they could gain some traction? >> absolutely. it was well known they were in the run-up to the nato deadline where they withdrew from the deal i made it. likely they could rekindle some
common ground fair, but to them it the range and stop iran from testing day could only start rehab because they have the ballistic missiles. this is a problem. we should at least work with partners on this middle ground and find a more comprehensive solution. >> i want to ask about the comment over the weekend. he said as long as other countries, the e.u., russia, china stick with us, our oil output will not be affected. the last time iran was under sanctions by the united states they lost about a million dollars per day. >> it's also worth noting at that point in time and took a major hit to iran's oil economy. iran is hyperbole is in right now. iran will be in big trouble. >> we shall see.
