tv After the Bell FOX Business June 14, 2018 4:00pm-5:00pm EDT
the economy is good but i think the market -- that is when i buy. [closing bell rings] liz: jeff sica, a good friend of this network and a good friend of the show. the dow struggling to break into the green. down 19.ç that is it. next is "after the bell." melissa: closing bell sounds on wall street. >> dow is struggling. melissa. third session in a row. nasdaq surging to new record close. it happens to be the 100th record since president trump's election. we'll cover it all. i'm connell mcshane filling in for david asman. melissa: and rhyme melissa francis this is "after the bell." more on the big market movers, here is what else we're covering in busy hour ahead.
mat gates, fox news's bill hemmer sitting next to me to break it all down. the new york attorney general doing the president, his children -- suing the president, children and trump foundation. we'll tell you how the president is responding now. iç am joining you live from the very beautiful shinnecock hills golf course in southhampton. a huge cry went up behind us. i'm dying to see what it was. here we are day one of the u.s. open. it is now underway. 12 poll dollars is on the line. a lot of screaming going on behind me which you don't hear a lot in golf. latest on the leaderboard. much more commitment coming up.
connell. connell: melissa back to you in a couple minutes. with the dow ending day down 24 points. really weakness we saw in financials. industrials not great today. nicole petallides joins us with breakdown from the new york stock exchange. but, forget about the dow for a moment. we had the record for the nasdaq. >> let's talk about that. so the nasdaq hit as record. not only is this a record close. in fact it is the 100th record since president trump was he elected, on election day. so this may be a very good birthday present for our president. happy birthday, mr. president, 72. nasdaq at record close. thank you for charlie brady that stat. our senior editor. the mixed bag, the dow down 24 points. tacking on yesterday's losses. s&p squeezes outç a gain of 1/4 of 1%. gain in telecom and utilities. we're looking at technology and some of those records.
bring them on. amazon, any gains for amazon and netflix would be a record. there is another record close for you. third for amazon. netflix, second in a row. when we see facebook now, that also is a record. so, it is 8th straight record. as communications director steps down over at facebook. then we take a look at some media stocks this is front and center. we got news at&t, time warner, that gets the okay from the judge. comcast steps in, 65 billion for fox, twenty-first century fox, parent of fox business network will disney fight back? so many analysts talking about mergers and acquisitions. we'll watch discovery, charter, lions gate, media, cable, what will happen next? so we'll be watching for that. sinclair, tribune, all of these things front and center. taking a look in addition to that retail. while we weren't looking. we were admiring technology, tailored brands, is down 21%.
had a tough quarter. but it is up almost 200% in the last year. in fact we've seen these, retail stocks killing it in the month of june. we saw under armourç 15%. kors, gap and outpacing major averages. tailored brands, joseph a. bank and men's warehouse. connell: thank you, nicole. a lot of good stories. carol roth is with us, former investment banker and founder of future file legacy planning system and gary b. smith from kadena group. gary is a fox business contributor. welcome to you both. gary, let me go to you first. nicole was talking about what we classify as good news for bulls on wall street. we'll back into issues that may be out there, technology, with the dow down 26 points, with the nasdaq hitting that record, it is quite a story that we've seen in american technology, amazons, and facebooks and netflix of the world. what do you make of it?
>> well you know that wall street movie, blue horseshoe loves anakot steel? these investors love technology. why wouldn't they? things ahead will continue to lead us, "ai," cloud, ar, those are all tech stories. on the technology policy backdrop, if we end up with more tariffs and more trade wars, what type of companies will not suffer in those, technologies.ç that makes a lot of sense where investors are focused on right now. connell: remains to be seen whether they will or won't but to your point, gary, i mean backing into the tale of two markets, the large stocks that make up the dow jones industrial average. we look at tech gainers today, industrial names, continue really to lag behind and struggle a little bit. and there is concern that the next announcement will get out of the white house has to do with trade with china, right? >> exactly. first of all, carol took all my
talking points. i got nothing. connell: uh-oh. this is a bad sign when a guest announces that. >> if i had gone first, i if i had gone first i would look brilliant at this point. no, every point she made is very accurate. here i think is, here i think is the story. i'm starting to wonder, because i was doing same thing as you. i was looking at averages, my gosh, you know, we hit the all-time highs on the dow early in the year and it is kind of come down. it is kind of making a little bowl if you will. i think it will go back up to new highs, to be honest with you. then i flip the chart, looking at some of these tech stocks, amazon, netflix, et cetera, et cetera. they never, they never paused even.ç they keep going up. here's the reason. i think we're slowly but surely migrating from this old economy we have, the focus on all the old industrials to exactly what
carol said. new interesting, exciting, robotics ai. connell: is a trade war if that is where we're going as carol said, we'll be better off, right? >> i think, i don't know if you're talking to me but i think there always will be a trickle-down effect. trade, tariffs are basically a tax. higher taxes, less money. it has to affect every industry, but it will affect the amazons and netflix of the world a lot less. connell: leave it there for now, guys. gary's behalf, let me thank carol for making terrific points to start us off this afternoon. >> exactly. connell: now the other big story of the day, back to shinnecock. melissa. melissa: highly anticipated ig report is out and the department of justice watchdog releasing a bombshell report on the fbi and doj of clinton email probe. edward lawrence is outside the justice department to break it down. edward, run us through it. reporter: melissa, 500 page document.
the big takeaway, president (yu5a has some of his fears concerned in this, there could possibly be bias within the fbi. the inspector general's report points to text messages, specifically between the person who was in charge of the clinton email investigation, a former fbi employee now, and former fbi attorney. those specifically say this, from the former attorney, lisa page who says trump is not ever going to become president, right, right? peter struck, the man in charge of the clinton email investigation, no, no he is not. we'll stop it. so five other names from fbi agents have been turned over to the fbi for disciplinary actions, for possibly violating their policy related to communications that they had probably putting out bias there. the report also critical of former fbi director james comey and calling him insubordinate in some cases. some of the ways he diverted from policy laid open or opened the door to the effect that the fbi could possibly be biased. now all of this has lawmakers on
capitol hill very concerned. listen. >> the question i have, department of justice, fbi, people in charge of the clinton investigation, were they really in the tank or not? we'll see what the conclusions are. i will challengeç mr. horowitzo make sure that his conclusion that they weren't in the tank makes sense. time will tell. >> and other republicans glad and relieved this report is now out there in the public light. listen to senator john kennedy from louisiana. here. >> now we're finally getting some facts from objective party. i'm grateful, let the chips fall where they may, but let the american people see the facts and they will draw their own conclusions. reporter: democrats are saying actually this report shows there is not a need for anymore prosecutions in this case.
look at a statement from representative adam schiff. he says quote, we found no evidence that the conclusions by the department prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations. rather we determined that they were based on prosecutor's assessment of the facts, the law and past department practices. this this is something debated in congress and otherwise. james comey at the center of this ig report tweeted out saying that he respects the report, respects the fact this was done. he also said that the conclusions are reasonable even though he doesn't agree with all of them.ç melissa this. melissa: there you go edward. democratic leaders respond soon to the report. we'll come back back to edward to react, jason chaffetz, former chairman of the house oversight committee. a fox news contributor. we have bill hemmer, co-host of "america's newsroom" on the fox news channel. bill, i want to start with you, you've been burning up phone
lines on this story. >> john radcliffe, he will be part of this group. you golf shamed me. i went and bought a shirt. americans the reason i'm more casual. great to be back with you. melissa: yeah. >> he made six points viewers need to understand. they used astonished and disappointed. this is former federal prosecutor. along with trey gowdy. number two he wants the fbi director to hold a press conference. he wants to clear the name of 13,000 fbi agents and clean up the names of 15 to 20 what he considers bad ones. point number two. melissa: wow. >> point number three, peter strzok matter he was in charge of russia investigation july july 2016 and to july sift set of. he thinks that is way out of bounds based on text messages. he wants to knowç if there was anything illegal. this is prosecutorial discretion, james comey has
discretion to make a move or not. ig on the senate side. on tuesday in the house side. you will see people like pressing on these questions that we're going through. sixth point, has to do with james comey. what they want to know whether or not he lied under oath. the point they come back to is, in september of 2016 radcliffee% asked comey underoath, when did he conclude his decision on the hillary clinton matter? he said after we interviewed her. the interview took place early july of that year. the ig report clearly show the conclusion happened two months prior. so six points that republicans are jumping on in this, 400 page report today. melissa: jason, of those, what sticks out at you? >> i think it was complete, total undressing integrity of james comey. it is sad really somebody who propped himself up as holyier
than thou was not abiding by protocol. he deviated. those with pro-hillary clinton have a lot to complain about. those of us wanted equal justice fair unbiased approach were totally let down.ç i think peter strzok, that to me, i am not a prosecutor. but looking at it, i mean, how could that not be treasonous? you're not in charge of fish and wildlife. you're in charge of counterintelligence for the united states of america. you have a duly-elected presidential nominee in donald trump. and you're going out and texting somebody you're having an affair with, you're texting her we're going to stop donald trump from becoming president of the united states. he should be prosecuted. melissa: democrats are already out saying that message is being taken out of conn text. it is actually about something else. what the ig report shows that the fbi was working in favor of the trump administration or potential administration, future campaign, and that all he did was hurt the clintons. i mean, isn't that what we keep
hearing, bill, from the democratic talking points? >> that seems to be a continued line but i think where all this merges together, remember this report only deals with hillary clinton's email matter and james comey. melissa: right. >> this is not bob null letter. it is -- mueller. it is not russia. the connection they're drawing is the strzok matter. he was in charge of the russia matter for one year entirely. he was the lead dog on that, until he was removed. melissa: jason, are theyç settg him up to be the scapegoat, peter strzok? >> he set himself up. you go back to the fact that hillary clinton set up the convenient email situation with herself. buried in the report, we're still pouring through it, insistence by the inspector general there was a compromise of private email and that classified information did get in the hands of foreign nations. and that is devastating. it is classified information for a reason. people put their lives on the line and can lose their lives if this information gets out but that is also buried in this
report. it will come out in the coming days. melissa: it's a good point, but, bill, take it back to you, strzok texts, that is really thing that comes out and they talk about, is the reason why the emails were slow-walked back into the investigation, did that have to do with the fact that these two are saying back and forth to each other we can't let president trump -- >> i think it's a legitimate point. i can't answer it. this is one of many questions that will face michael horowitz early next week. melissa, this will be mandatory television watching come monday and tuesday. republicans will have line of questioning we detailed. democrats will take it another direction. and as jason pointsç out. you can figure out who to believe, but there is enough in here to tick off the hillary clinton people. and there is plenty in here to tick off the white house right now. melissa: jason respond to the
talking point i heard three or four times in the past hour, with democrats say this just proves the fbi was basically helping president trump? >> i do think hillary clinton was dealt with improperly in this situation. i do think that they deviated from the norm, from their protocol. she suffered some of those consequences. i still think donald trump would have become the president of the united states. i don't think it affected the ultimate outcome of the election. but they have got a lot to point at, be highly critical of james comey and fbi. they did not deal with it properly as it relates to her. melissa: comey was out making the point that he had the investigation into her and he said nothing about the fact that they were investigating trump campaign for collusion and russia and everything else. that is their talking point. >> republicans believed that was not a serious investigation. that as you look at the emails and text messages, peter struck's email, that was not just one text message that went awry, that really illuminated their feelings, not only butç
animus, they had a relationship but there are thousands of texts that are similar in its nature and approach that make you just question the highest echelon of the fbi. >> i give you one more. what republicans will is a that the fbi director has to fire strzok. if he still has a job by this weekend, they will go off on monday. melissa: all right. we've got to go. thank you so much, jason, bill. i know we heard cousin johnson screaming behind -- dustin johnson, got to get back out there. >> struggle is real. melissa: thank you, my friend. thank you. connell? connell: we'll have a lot more coming up, melissa from here in new york city, out there in the u.s. open. you mentioned edward lawrence continues to go through the ig report. we'll bring him back as we get more headlines throughout the hour. congressman matt gaetz, a republican out of florida, as we understand it he is being briefed on capitol hill about the report. he, melissa, will join us later

action and competing and contending in quite a few tournament in season. we need to see a win though. that is when we believe he can really do it,. melissa: the chatter about the fairways, wider, skinnier, moved the grass out. they spent a lot of money. we're a business channel. what is the deal with the fairways for us? >> it is a wider. that is no guarranty it will make it easier for the golfers. they are epcoping with the elements. the wind and weatherç challenging. with this wind gusts up to 25 miles an hour. that plays havoc with scoring. the best of the world are humbled. mickelson 7 over. jordan spieth, 8 over. rory 10 over? they're not supposed to do that. i'm afraid the weather can really play with these guys. melissa: it is the elements. i have to say it is gorgeous. it is not too hot. absolutely beautiful.
