mercedes:thanks for joining us. and prosecuting individuals. >> insubordination came forward usurping powers of the atty. gen. hillary clinton will not be prosecuted even as she was careless with confidential information so that is one side. the other side is mccabe, he has launched investigators about leaks to the wall street journal, that is another recommendation for him to be prosecuted. maria: certain things we know existed because we know loretta lynch told jim comey to call the hillary clinton email investigation a matter, not a criminal investigation and that is what jim comey did and there was a meeting that took place between loretta lynch, the atty. gen. at the time and bill clinton, hillary clinton's husband, before she was about
to testify. >> the best thing for the american people is get the facts out, and something like this never happens because people just want to know what happened, you can't change it. let's get it out and move on. maria: there is definitely fatigue. let's get forward. a lot of criticism, to complete the investigation and set forth this report. there is fatigue surrounding it. we saw criminal charges recommended in the last ig report for andrew mccabe. will we see criminal charges recommended for jim comey? >> not necessarily. we hear what is being reported, insubordination, he was insubordinate in the investigation, ignored the justice department official who
came forward, one official came forward, do not go forward and write this letter to congress, that investigation being reopened because of huma aberdeen. and put out the letter in the investigation. maria: that decision alienated him not just from the republicans but democrats as well. that is why hillary clinton lost the election. >> hollywood script unfolded in front of their eyes, be grateful for what happens. maria: we have seen texts of bias like peter struck, but whether that hit the scale is what we will learn from this report. a new paul from politico shows 30% of voters view robert mueller unfavorably versus a 32% favorable view. why is this? >> it a lot of it is just

deputy attorney general rod rosenstein threatened to subpoena records, emails from lawmakers and lawmakers staff to the house intelligence committee, the leader of that committee responding on fox news last night. >> we have had many, what i would say, altercations with the deputy attorney general and his staff. what i think is inappropriate, i can take the heat, you can attack me all you ones, i enjoy it. when it comes to attacking staff and when staff feel uncomfortable, that is when you have gone too far. maria: what about that? until now, the ag, the permit of justice on the hot seat to give up these documents to congress and now he wants, i will get those documents from you and subpoena them. >> folks will say there's a piece of power here. this is not the way to do this. there is a civility, formality,
but the way it is handled could be criticized as abuse of power. maria: they are saying he threatened what you are talking about. why haven't we gotten the documents devon nunez is asking for. what evidence they use to launch an investigation into donald trump. he came on the show, i did the due diligence and no intelligence used in 2 collusion. >> that is really frustrating of the american public. it is one side against another, nitpicking back and forth. and the right or the left, to apply to anybody. maria: you would think everybody was on the same side here. giving up the documents in the investigation. >> let me ask about apple,
making it harder for law enforcement agencies to unlock iphones. this reminds me when we were trying to understand why apple was not opening a phone after a major shooting, san bernardino. >> a lot of folks are torn with it. you talk about rights of privacy, this is my phone. when you talk about a criminal investigation don't you want the truth to be known or who is responsible for the crime to be called to justice? that is the rub between privacy and going forward and criminally prosecuted and responsible for the crime. maria: i want my privacy but when you are talking about a shooting -- >> or matter of safety or
security. tim cook, anybody else can get in. and all the technology and advances we are seeing across our lives there should be a better way to do this where it if the government needs access to something to protect other people they should get it. maria: provided you trust the government. >> go to the judges and say here is my phone, if there's any criminality take a look at it. maria: you would think we could get this done. thanks for joining us, nice to see you. we will take a short break. when we come back, under pressure, dick's sporting-goods shareholder blasting a new gun rule and missing the mark a target sparking outrage for selling these cars, baby daddy cars for father's day, backlash coming up. ♪ here.

fox, comcast deal, i think there's a lot more, i think it's early innings there. there's a lot more to come there. the big companies like disney and comcast need to own more content. >> maria: we'll talk about that this morning. joining us this morning, kevin mccarthy is with us, along with mark short. harvard law professor and author, alan deer h dershowitz e as well. we kick off with this top story, that's the next step toward denuclearization. secretary of state mike pompeo will meet with chinese officials in ba beijing today to brief thm on the north korea summit on tuesday, this as the u.s. plans to move forward with tariffs on chinese goods. tomorrow we will get a specific list from the white house of the specific products that will be tariffed coming out of china. rich edson is in beijing with the latest.
good evening to you. >> reporter: hello, maria. mike pompeo is meeting the chinese foreign minister. afterwards, the two will give a joint press conference behind me. the secretary of state arrives in beijing following a visit to seoul, south korea. there he met with top officials, saying the union between the three is iron-clad in addressing the north korean nuclear program. he stresses that north korea will receive no significant sanctions relief until the united states can verify that it's moving to dismantle its nuclear program. >> we believe that chairman kim jong un understands the urgency of the timing of completing the denuclearization, that he understands that we must do this quickly and that sanctions relief we should recall these are u.n. sanctions, that sanctions relief cannot take place until such time as we have demonstrated that north korea has been completely denuclearized. >> reporter: he says the united states and south korea will only
end their joint military exercises as north korea and the world make progress towards dob. denuclearization. he says if he gets the sense that is not happening, they will resume. maria. >> maria: this is really a hot stakes moment here between the u.s. and china. joining me right now is former small business owner herself, congresswoman claudia tenney of new york. good to see you. thank you for joining us. >> good morning. thank you. >> maria: where are you on this, congresswoman? your reaction to these forth diss cominforthcoming tariffs oe goods. >> very have an issue with chinese theft of intellectual property. i think we have to make sure we're targeted, we definitely do not want to he see the cost of goods and services go up tremendously here. we have to recognize that china is cheating and china is taking advantage of our citizens and advantage of our companies here. i come from an area of new york where we lost many jobs to asia
and china. so we'll she the legislation or -- we'll see what the legislation or what wilbur ross is presenting to us. he looked like the imposition of tariffs may not be a done deal. >> maria: i'm glad you brought up the issue of china stealing intellectual property. i read an op ed on this yesterday. it's in real clear politics. one line basically says instead of seeking a commitment for arbitrary levels of total imports and exports that will ultimately be determined by the consumer, president trump should let gentleme the chinese presidw that u.s. companies should not have to team up with chinese companies and they should be able to operate without being afraid that their technology is going to be stolen. so what are we doing in regard? at this point it doesn't matter if china buys $200 billion in
agriculture, they're still stealing intellectual property and forcing the transfer of technology from american companies to chinese companies. >> they're state run businesses. you don't go to china and run an independent business. you work with the government. the government controls everything. i think u.s. businesses eventually will realize they're at a disadvantage there. yes, they're getting cheap labor and getting goods put out at a low price. what does that cost american citizens and american companies that are competing in steel whersteelwhere the chinese creaa factory and say here's the factory, how do we know that theft isn't happening. there's a number of ways we can go after the chinese on this. one of the ways that the president is looking at it is with tariffs. i know people don't like it. the president isn't a globalist. he's a free trader that's looking for fair and reciprocal trade as he calls it. i think it's a very interesting mix. i think imposing the tariffs and
at least the threat of the tariffs was part of the reason we got north korea to the negotiating table, because look at, china is a powerful force, providing 90% of the resources in energy, on finance to north korea and using our military force, the pressure we put on diplomatically, that's what brought north korea to the table. it's a multifaceted approach the president used. these are important factors to look at. the fact that china might be cheating is something that is really, really -- we have to look at it and we have to consider it. i think that's what the president is trying to do. >> maria: what do you want to do with zte? the white house says it will try to kill the bipartisan senate legislation which reimposes the penalties on that chinese telecom company. the company is seeking a $10.7 billion financing plan. it's nominating eight new board members and it seeks to overhaul its management. i know part of the back and forth between the white house and zte includes actually the
commerce department choosing that board. the president told me that the u.s. got a lot of things by helping zte including being able to choose the board as well as $1.4 billion. but the senate is still nervous about helping zte. >> it does look like a change in strategy. the president i think maybe he knows more than we know about it. on the surface, i tend to agree more with the senate on this. why are we taking a position where we advocate and champion american companies and crack down on cheating and turn around and give zte a break here. but i think maybe the president knows something we don't know. maybe it's part of the negotiating piece that he's putting together. but i tend to side with the senate on this one. we have got to stop chinese companies from cheating and taking advantage of us. we still compete in the world market. i'm a free trader but i also agree on the other side that the president is right, we need fair trade. americans have been taking the high road while the rest of the
world has been taking the low road and taking advantage of our citizens, our jobs, our integrity as citizens and the rule of law. that's something that is very appealing about the president to my constituents and my businesses, many of them have been moved over to china and asia and other areas. we have iconic businesses in my region that are gone, manufacturers are in china now. that's he precisely because we're allowing an unfair trade advantage. that's what's appealing about the president's pitch. the zte position, we'll see. maybe there's more in the detail that we don't know about or more that the president is trying to strategize on. >> maria: then there's the tax poll civil once the tax bill was passed there was fear offs of ax exodus from high tax states because of the elimination of the state and local deduction. can you characterize that? what are you seeing now that we are six months away from the passage of tax legislation. >> the tax cuts and jobs act has
been phenomenal in my district. a lot of well ther wealthier nen new york city. we're seeing a lot of companies coming back to the united states with jobs. we're seeing lower and middle income taxpayers really happy. i've been to 40 or 50 businesses, small, medium large, pizza stores, manufacturing companies of all sizes and types throughout my region since the tax cuts. they're thrilled. i've been on live tv feed and forgot to ask the owner how are the tax cuts working and they immediately chime in with wow, it's been amazing. every person in our company is getting a raise, is getting a bonus every quarter, we're adding jobs, buying equipment. a small bill like that, the federal government has come in and help. the independent tax foundation found that new york will be one of the top gainers from the tax reform even though we have a
hostile government in new york that is trying to tax our citizens. we are seeing there is some vibrancy, there's some hope. just from the smallest level, i was in a little pizza store in upstate new york the other day. the guy was so thrilled, he said thank you so much for tax reform. i see families coming in, they're starting to bring families out to dinner, they're starting to do more. that's just a glimmer of hope from my community. people are starting to see it. the reason i know it's working is that democrats are working overtime trying to decry that the tax cuts aren't working, trying to claim the corporations are off-shoring. the opposite is actually true. you know they're working when the democrats overreact and nancy pelosi is melting down on this topic. it's spectacular to watch the comments coming from her, crumbs or whoppy-dee-doo. >> maria: lead me ask about
getting back onto the field. will you go to the congressional baseball game set to happen tonight, one year after a gunman attacked republican lawmakers while they were practicing for the game. president trump is invited to the game. you'll be there, right? >> of course. it's interesting, it's hard to believe, today is flag day which is also the president's birthday and unfortunately it's the anniversary of the day steve scalise got shot. i also got some specific death threats. it's a sad reminder of where we are in politics today. today is going to be a unifying day. as everybody knows, every piece of legislation i put out is bipartisan. i have two bills that were included in the recent package to roll back some of the onerous dodd-frank reform bills. so i'm excited about it. last year i sat with my democratic friends. this is a day for us to come together. it's going to be an exciting night. we'll have hot, steamy weather
in the nation's capital. i'm on the women's congressional soft ball team. we play the real enemy, the fake news. so it's going to be exciting tonight. >> maria: we'll be watching. good for you. we're thrilled to watch the unity of the game tonight. we'll watch and we'll see you soon. thank you so much for joining us this morning. coming up, a media bidding war is underway. comcast offering $65 billion in cash to fox for the entertainment assets of 21st century fox. that tops the $52 billion all-stock deal that was already in place with disney. the competing bid and regulatory questions coming up next. and then the u.s. open is teeing off less than an hour from now at shinnecock hills golf course. we'll tell you how the greens that are no longer in use are turning into greenbacks for real estate developers. back in a minute. >>live from theu.s. open 2018.

>> cheryl: you know what? everybody heard it here first on fox business yesterday afternoon. our very own charlie gasparito broke the news on fox business. it happened about 3:45. comcast making an unsolicited $65 billion all-cash offer for the fox properties. that's a 19% premium over an offer currently on the table from walt disney that was made in december. the comcast bid comes one day after a federal judge gave at&t the green light to buy time warner for $85 billion without requiring the sale of any major assets, easing anti-trust concerns. now, the higher offer comes as traditional entertainment companies are trying to compete with all the streaming giants, netflix, amazon and google. well, 21st century fox, which is the parent of the fox business network, says it will carefully review and consider comcast's proposal. fox shares closed up nearly 8%

5%. >> looking at new york city, seems like you're seeing a lot of people moving out of the city. i don't know if it's because of taxes or what the reason is, but i think when i look at manhattan real estate it seems to be a buyer's market right now. >> well, i wouldn't define it as a buyer's market. there's no inventory. across the country, it's not just the northeast, aclos acrose country inventory there's a shortage and so that keeps it hot. when you're talking over $20 million, you're talking less foreigners right now. >> maria: the russian money went away and even china has slowed down a bit. we were talking yesterday about a story in connecticut, new canna, this town voting to ban the for sale sign on people's homes. it's taking away from the
neighborhood esthetic they say, the board of realtors moving to have the signs taken down by july 1st. the town council could make the ban permanent after a six month trial do. do you think the signs make the homes less valuable? >> i think what it is, greenwich already has that, you can't have signs in greenwich, i think they're testing it because there's about 300 households on the market so you see a lot of for sale signs. esthetically i don't think it looks great. i think it sends the wrong message that makes people think everything's for sale. i think what they're doing is they're going to test it and in six months if they don't lose any sales, if sales are the same base, they'll probably keep it permanent. >> it used to be you only knew a house was for sale if you saw the for sale sign. don't most buyers go online or something? >> they go onlie online, zillowr
something. if you're driving and you see a sign, you're half sold. you just have to walk in. there's a positive thing about a sign. >> maria: let me ask you, the federal reserve raised interest rates yesterday. we are expecting two more rate hikes from the fed. as rates go higher and we see the impact on mortgage rates, will that put a dent in this market? >?>> not if the rates are where they are now. if you look at the rates, i've been in business a while, they're still low. there's still very low. and there's companies now -- the biggest problem with people is down payments. now there's companies that actually will give you half the down payment. no, i don't think they're high enough to really make a big difference. >> as they move higher, is that sometimes a push for the first time home buyer or millennials to say like before rates go too high, let me get my mortgage, buy my house now?
>> look, i would always tell people if you find the house you love, buy it. because they're going to go up. but significantly they're really not -- they're still low if you average it out over the last 12 years. they're still low. >> maria: don't try to time this market. >> no. only if you find something you love. >> maria: great to see you. >> i'm going to enjoy shinnecock now. >> maria: we'll take a short break. when we come back, wildfires are growing fast and furious throughout the west. up to 12 states have been affected. we have the latest on the massive fires that we're showing you. instagram taking over restaurants, one steak house opens a booth dedicated to taking snapshots of your dinner. we'll show it to you, back in a moment, right here live from shinnecock at the u.s. open. ♪ rock and roll is dead. ♪ rock and roll is dead. ♪ rock and roll is dead.

though. the dow industrials well off of the lows we had been showing a decline earlier. now we're expecting the dow industrials to be up about 15 points at the start of trading, s&p 500 and the nasdaq are higher by a fraction. this is after declines yesterday on wall street. yesterday, the markets were down at the lows of the day, down 120 points on the dow industrials, down 11 on the s&p and down 8 on the nasdaq after the federal reserve decision to raise interest rates. checking europe mean indices -- european indices, investors are bracing for a decision from the european central bank today. the e.c.b. is expected to signal the end of the bond buying program. we'll bring you that news as soon as it hits the tape. markets are lower across the continent as you can see. germany's dax index is down a third of a percent, worst performer. in asia overnight, markets were lower across the board, worst performer was korea, down 2%. extreme heat is fueling massive wildfires out west where conditions are worsening.

>> that's an announcement for the white house to be making letter. we continue to remain concerned that the number of -- that china imposes four times the level of tariffs on american exports than we apply on chinese goods coming to the united states. the president remains anxious to level the playing field. as he said recently at the g-7 summit, our ultimate goal is to get rid of tariffs but right now it remains an unlevel playing field. >> maria: what does that say to us about the theft of intellectual property and the forced transfer of technology? i came out with an op ed yesterday on real clear politics. i write about the issues that are most important to american business and it's not about $200 billion in agricultural products. i write instead of seeking a commitment for arbitrary levels of total imports and exports, that will largely be determined by consumers anyway, president trump should let the china president know that u.s. companies should not be forced
to take on foreign partners or share their technology regardless of the industry. more chinese imports of u.s. agriculture and energy commodities are obviously always welcome but china sometimes seems to understand better than the united states that innovation is the crown jewel of the american economy. so what is the president doing about that, mark? >> maria, you're 100% right. i don't mean to overlook the intellectual property theft. that's driving a lot of the president's frugs trace. frustration. much of the theft comes in new ways that we're producing greater yields on our crops that china is stealing that technology too. it actually impacts the agricultural community as well. that remains a priority for the administration, the way we're trying to draw yo attention to t is to create a more level playing field. >> maria: there are reports that the white house is trying to stop the senate from killing the deal with chinese telecom giant
zte even if they are nominating new board members. can they still be trusted? why must we help zte when the senate is worried about national security issues? >> we remain concerned about national security issues. i think there's been no administration that has moved more rapidly to make sure america is more secure across the globe. an investigation was launched specifically with zte. the sanctions would be imposed by the commerce department, would be the most severe sanctions against any company in history, not just from a financial perspective, maria, it's also replacing the entire board and putting in place inside the company a compliance board that the commerce department selects that is basically reporting to congress in the future about their ability to stay compliant with the restrictions we put in place. so it is more than just a financial. it is replacing the board. it is a compliance team of americans that goes inside the company. so these restrictions we think are incredibly severe. i think the president does believe that despite our
concerns on the trade front, china has also been an instrumental partner in bringing north korea to the table. and that is a relationship we want to make sure we protect. >> maria: let me ask you about immigration. what i does the white house want to see now? we know that house speaking paul ryan says the house will hold votes on immigration next week. one report says that this could be the biggest amnesty deal of all. what is the most important thing for president trump? >> there will be two separate bills on the house floor. the white house could support both. what they do is they provide advanced funding of $25 billion to help us build the wall. it closes loopholes that we continue to face that provides the biggest threat to us on catch and release, a separate policy for migrants who are other than mexicans as well as allowing us to finally deport criminals who are basically are hardened criminals. these are very severe addition toss our security that is
important to us. it does provide as well certainty for the daca population. what will be interesting is that two separate bills again provide solutions to daca population and you won't see any democrats cross over and support our efforts because they actually don't want to secure the border and they don't want a solution for daca. they want to continue to politicize this issue. >> maria: do you think that's going to be prevalent during the midterm elections? will voters understand that the president putt something on the table -- put something on the table, wanted to get it across the finish line but the democrats want to play political football. >> i think this president has raised border security as a priority for the united states voters. they see it and they know it. they see the president leading and saying i'm trying to get the funding necessary to secure the border and close the legal loopholes. thei think the american people l see the president trying to do that. >> maria: let me ask you about north korea.
congratulations to the white house, for president trump, for actually having the meeting. i was hard to get a compliment from anybody on the success of this meeting on the left. they're talking about the president legit miziing the killer of kim jong un. what do you want to say to those people who don't acknowledge the success that this president has had in north korea? >> when this president came into office, president obama told him his greatest challenge will be north korea. in 15, 16 months with an international cooperation, the president led to bring massive pressure to north korea, they've come to the table. we have a brighter future ahead of us. this is the president acknowledges a first step. it's an important first step. for the same democrats, what they initially argued is that the president shouldn't meet him. when he called off the meeting, they criticized him and said he shouldn't call off the meeting. when he had the meeting, they criticized and said it's too
fluffy. the american people know it's a bigger concern. they saw the rockets that were getting launched. they knew the nuclear threat north korea posed. the president is looking to take on the nuclear threats in ways the previous administration never did. >> maria: you said this is step one. what's step two. >> i think step one was the meeting. seeing secretary pompeo has laid out what he view as a time line to show the verifyable destruction of their nuclear sites. those will be forthcoming steps. this was an important opening to the process. >> maria: thank you very much. we'll talk with you soon sir. sprint is hanging up on its $15 service promotion. why the cell carrier is disconnecting earlier. and within of the fastest growing beer companies in the country right now is right here on long island. we talk to the founders of montauk brewing company about what's happening in the industry. back in a moment.
just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home, with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection, which could lead to hospitalizations. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day, so you can stay home. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro.

i guess add instagram food pictures to what's cool right now with millennials. >> maria: mike murphy said to me earlier one of his kids said to him, if it's not on instagram, it's not true. >> cheryl: okay. done. >> it throes b has to be on ins. >> maria: young people love instagram. they instagram everything. ecb left interest rates unchanged. we were expecting them to leave rates unchanged. we want to hear more from the language of the statement from mario draki about what happens next and whether or not they're going to end the bond buying program. there's the global markets, the european markets are lower as they had been ahead of the decision. when we come back, we're talking the business of beer with the founders of montauk brewing company, how their small business is exploding especially with summer friendly flavors like watermelon ale as well as lower taxes.

that way? how has technology impacted the growth of the business? >> that's a good question. quality controls are big for us. we look into innovate with quality controls at a simple level. eric is our brew master. he's kind of tweaking new recipes and paying attention to that. the alcohol business, the regulatory systems in place are kind of tough for that. but, yeah, -- >> maria: let's hear from the brew master himself. what are you working on? >> these are the beers in cans. we have i.p.a., summer ale and watermelon as well. right now we're focusing on the summer beer, the summer ale and watermelon, super refreshing. >> maria: how much alcohol is in those brews versus a different brew? like a watermelon versus a typical other beer. >> watermelon beer has 4.9%. it's pretty light. our bigger beers, i.p.a.s have
in the 6s and we get into 7% alcohol. that's about as high as we go. >> i'm a target consumer for you guys. i love the product. one thing i think you've done well is the simple marketing. can you speak to that a little bit? it says montauk but it feels like montauk, it feels like the east end when you look at it and hold it. >> maria: that's a good point. >> thanks for that. that it great to hear. we want to start packaging the product, we wanted something that popped from a shelf standpoint. there are a lot of craft beers in the market. color coded, welcoming colors, it tells the montauk lifestyle story but very simply. it's great to hear that. >> maria: tell me about the tax policy coming out of washington, did you see a big impact on your bottom line? >> we haven't seen much of a change yet. it's early with the aluminum and all that. >> maria: you're talking about the tariffs on aluminum and steel. the tox policy goin -- the tax y
was a significant impact. you haven't seen the impact there. >> the tax went for us from $7 a barrel to $3.50. so it was cut in half. that's been a positive impact on us. >> maria: that's a big deal. what about the tariffs on aluminum, that's sort of looming? >> that's something we're paying attention to. >> we haven't seen much of a change yet. >> looking at the colors and looking at the watermelon, seems like you're not just targeting the male beer drinker but also targeting the female audience. is that by design? >> our tag line is come as you are. that's certainly true to our brand. we want to welcome men, women, it's a fun lifestyle, beach community, boating, and we really want to welcome men and women. >> maria: do you see a difference in terms of women drinking more beer? what has been the reception? what can you tell us about the market? >> the reception's been great. there are more women drinking craft beer specifically now, especially the watermelon session and our summer al, very
inviting. -- summer ale. very inviting. they're flavorful beers, easy drinking. >> maria: do you think about competing with bigger beers, bigger companies? >> i would like to brew stuff that i would like to drink personally. i think i have a pretty -- i have a palette that's not crazy or over-the-top, it's easy drinking. >> maria: congratulations, guys. great to see you. >> thank you for having us. >> maria: it's wonderful. check out montauk brewing company. still ahead we're headed to the international space station where there's a space walk set within the hour. we'll have the next pictures live next hour on "mornings with maria," right here live from shinnecock hills. stay with us. until... we lost it. today, we're renewing our commitment to you. fixing what went wrong. and ending product sales goals for branch bankers.

who is getting fox i meanings earlier comcast offered 65 billion dollars, that translates to 35 dollars all cash, per share, this is a arrived -- proposal from come after after fox reabout rejected the bid citing hurdles after at&t and time warner have essentially mortgaged together teal was approved, that is the reason why you are seeing comcast step forward today. trying to outbid disney, disney suffered a an all stock worth deal 52 billion dollars, so that 19% less than come kat is offering if we go back in history books, there has been a bad blood between both companies because comcast tried to acquire disney in 2004 disney board fought back, obviously didn't succeed what do i mean by comcast business attempting to woo 21st century, a breakup fee watching what with disney
offered 1.5-million-dollar breakup fee reimbursement in case deal does not get approved the 65-billion-dollar all cash you offering brian roberts ceo of comcast on call yesterday to investors was extremely confident says fox is the right fit why all this going on? telecom companies say that they need to coat they need to be able to compete against netflix amazon hulu out there, so they cannot only just be providers have to be content makers as we'll, there is no word on disney share price down disney has not responded with a match in terms of price i spoke to one analyst this morning, on fbn:am said disney needs to come out with a match dollar for dollar match to appea appease share holders do you have any idea of the have to be all cash but a match going forward they spent roughly 7.4 billion dollars a lot of analysts complained that was
too high now we know pixar is very valuable so possible disney could come to the table with a higher prize, fox, said it will review the deal, still pretty much scheduled to vote july 10. >> all right. thanks very much this is an knowledgeab incredible story i suspect back-and-forth here between disney comcast, fox and so that fox shareholders meeting next month 20 beijing secretary of state mike pompeo is briefing officials following president trump trumps historic summit with north korean leader kim jong-un insisting no sanctions leased for hermit kingdom while the bains nuclear weapons expected to come ahead with i tariffs on chinese goods could happen as soon as tomorrow all the above "america's newsroom" anchor bill hemmer. >> nice to see you. >> good to see you --
>> right. >> of a we introduce you short straw you have. >> done so much on north korea story on show china trade are you expecting back-and-forth here. >> i think so that is my sense, i think with regard to the to north korea everything all stories can be tied around for bit of north korea what is happening, the amount of pleasure is it still trying to apply on that regime. if sanctions say where they were, going to continue talking but if you start to see a lessening of that there has been reporting the past two weeks, that some was sanctions backed up i would keep closes eye on that the the story i know marco rubio is hot on this story trying to make sure u.s. government does not give them a pass they made changes the way they are doing business but i think that, too is tied into this north korea matter. maria: i think so too because the president actually told me, that president xi called him directly said i need a favor from you hope me with
zte two weeks before the north korea summit the president gets a call from president of china, knowing that we need china to be on our side, in terms of getting him to the containable, he wanted to do as much as he could, for zte let's not forget u.s. did get something back 1.4 billion dollars now the commerce department will choose the board of zte. >> i would argue none of this is perfect but trying to get something done, let's see how they do given the circumstances. >> today agree a negotiations, and there is going to be some give some take on both sides i think we are making progress in north korea. and with china, there is going to be a give and take the president talked about it yesterday again so being at the table, with them, making shire that we are protected from a national security standpoint also they are trade the maurnz we are going to trade with them back-and-forth may have to been talking about op-ed i enumerate in realclearpolitics yesterday itted is about china what i write is in part this instead of seeking a commitment, for
arbitary levels of total expoerlths determined by sxhooefr president trump should let xi jinping know u.s. company should not have to take on foreign partners or technical more chinese imports u.s. agricultural and energy commodities are al welcome china seems to understand better than u.s. does, that innovation is the crown jewel of american economy what are we doing about that bill hymn center. >> you watched markets every day i know you belief so many moves decisions are tied directly to what dow does whether up or down remarkably stable given news every day given back-and-forth, on the sanctions with china zi is going to respond properly equal manner but markets have been steady that is they are seeing a deal at some point but -- the chinese will give is money. will give is money will they
sacrifice intellectual property for them the long game. >> bizarre negotiations negotiating with one person about housekeeper they may buy from you, but you are also not even discussing the real issue on the table which is how much they steal from you -- >> right. >> i think, as an american for the entire united states of america, just the fact that we're there ebb negotiating is a win for us because we were being taken advantage it was unfair trade for a very long time the fact we are at the table going to gain something from this, i think that is a win for is. maria: switch gears ask aboutig report you have done a lot thon have you bob goodlatte i sad bob goodlatte devin nunes on sunday last unique. >> i don't think if you find anything illegal if you listen to goodlatte talking about significant bias on before of the president from fbi could be severe indictment to viewers should be made clear this deal hillary clinton,
with loretta lynch with decisions jim comey made on back of that you have lisa page, and peter strzok alleged bias i think already damage i through up trusting fbi i grew up trusth trusting cia how do we come out in the end feel about government actions i think will show bias based on what we're getting i don't know if will be to level sale of one to 10 a 10 as interest of would say or more five or six somewhere in the middle. >> we will see if laws he were bron at shinnecock hills u.s. open under way what are you looking forward to -- >> this course a beast i came out on wednesday morning just barely utterly humiliated me i walked out going i clearly cannot play this game, so i sat down my own about person mission to figure out what the
proper swing is started on this course, on number one five years ago. >> figured it out? >> no. >> golfers here at major, some big names tiger woods, phil mickelson. >> justin thomas dustin johnson. >> rickie fowler. >> american golf game in a renaissance period this is a golden era of great golfers so good anyone of these could win over the coming weeks that is what is exciting because i think a lot of younger guys talked about growing up watching tiger woods. and they came up wp jordan spieth all so good tiger was not playing out with injuries now tiger is back somewhat back to old form really intellecti i want to see course playing very difficult i want to see guys challenged there their equipment training is taking them past these courses, and ability to for the course to

on both sides of the aisle bracing much attention on former fbi director jim comey conduct during the investigation joining me to talk more about that alan dershowitz harvard law pro confessor emeritus author of the case impeaching president trump. >> thanks for joining us. >> thank you. >> so i mean we really our viewers want to know if there is going to be ever accountability here but first, tell us what your expecting, from this ig report when it hits todayon. >> i think criticism on both sides i think the ig is night rally nonpartisan, highly respected, we know that he submitted a draft earlier that there with some changes in fact draft i hope congress gets to -- see original draft as well as the changed draft to see what the changes were whether mutually done, i think we will see no assessment of whether or not mr. comey's
statements had impact on election perhaps they will say it had potential or possible impact. i think it will creative comey for going beyond his role as fbi director, which is supposed to be a silent role and speaking out so much during the election. whether it has anything to say about the fbi agents bias, reflected in the private tweets against trump is questionable because under fbi regulations agents are allowed to express privately and publicly political views about candidates. now in this case, they were pretty extreme views but i doubt we will see that. i think the big question is whether or not the ig report will have any impact on trump's legal team decision whether to cooperate with the more investigating or whether go to courts and litigate it will depend on whether they think the all right. puts mueller on the defensive
or offensive one thing it not sure it will cognitive the relationship between comey and mueller very, very close professionally and privately raises questions in minds whether he was a right choice for special counsel. >> we know issues as we remember back to the election year 2016, when these investigations were going on, and loretta lynch asked jim comey to call this criminal investigation into hillary clinton e-mails a matter, versus a criminal investigation, that is exactly what he did. there was also a meeting on tarmac between loretta lynch and president bill clinton. a day before two days before hillary was supposed to testify there are other things as well built are you expecting these things to be scrutinized? s. >> i surely think that the meeting between attorney general lynch and former president clinton will be subject of suggestion, i can't imagine that he won't
criticize the attorney general for the appearance of i am propriety a 500-page report will have criticism approves why you need a special counsel the justice department has intern mechanisms for investigating, the ig is much more respected believed than you mueller is they could have assigned the case to southern district of new york or one other district they could have used existing professionals career appointees instead of spending 20 million dollars appointing somebody to have a target on the back in particular of people when make it seem very political i think ig report will potentially change the nature of the debate. >> mike murphy just when all special investigations and all the reports are out, haven't the american public get to a
point where they trust the fbi and the cia? and where they trust the government again? it is going to be a very, very hard thing to do. we've seen the politicization of our system of justice to agree that i have never seen it to a degree i have never seen before i do think the ig to his credit has done everything in his power, to depoliticizes restore fate i do do hope we see that in the report fbi agents do a great job on daily basis assistant u.s. attorneys do great job career people don't care about outcome of elects nonpartisan there are some people tragically near very top seem to have very, very extreme views, look, i don't think that -- that comey was trying to influence the election either way i think he thought it was a slam-dunk for hillary clinton. and since it was a slam-dunk he was going to lean over backwards and prevent any
criticism of him by doing everything that the trump team would say helped him win the election i don't think he thought he was going to have any impact on the election. turns out may or may not have but you can't be engaging in that kind of political calculation when you are the director of the fbi. >> that is absolutely right let me ask you how far up the scale you think this goes? there is some suggestion that this was basically a directive from the administration at the time, do you think some of this is jist to protect president obama somebody making this directive to launch investigation of trump to treat hillary clinton with white he floegloves. >> we hear president trump wrong seeking loyalty of attorney general president obama had two of the most loyal attorneys general imaginable extremely loyal to obama whether diretions from the top or thought on their own would like to see the
reputation and thank you know, integrity of president trump furthered by what they did nobody will ever know but i think from on the scale of the obama administration, maybe one may be one of the things pointed to in ig report explicitly or implicity. >> we appreciate it, by the way, we are going to speak with kevin mccarthy coming up wrote op-ed about the crushing of ideas on the conservative level i wands your thoughts about naziism came up when you did going search in california we will talk about with kevin mccarthy about that as talking with alan dershowitz off 8/10 of a percent estimate called for gain retail sale 4/10 of a paris we got 8/10 for may.
