♪ ♪ but when i started seeing things, i didn't know what was happening... so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong... but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid. the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion.
6:12 am
we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid.
6:13 am
maria: welcome back, big program this morning kicking off new week this morning, texas congressman congressman michael burgess along with senior advise the other george w. bush karl rove with us this morning, former coo of microsoft, bob joining us this morning, fox news judicial analyst andrew napolitano, big show ahead as we look at all the issues you want to look at. don't miss a moment of it. we kick it off right here, the fallout from president trump's tax cut, the journal this morning detailing which companies were too optimistic about the gain from the tax cut plan, also joining the conversation pwc partner mitch roschelle along with the president of maslansky + partners lee carter, great to see you this morning. >> great to be here.
6:14 am
maria: monday morning, everybody. >> i got a lot of rest. dagen: i was watching twitter. i think our nation and handful of patriot fans. maria: you have done a lot of work on tax cut plan and journals naming names in terms of the companies that said, hey, this is going to be a great impact, long runway and then we saw not as favorable as we thought. >> yeah, i think it's highly isolated and it's also highly technical thing because the sec gave companies a year to figure out the accounting and some of the regs -- maria: explain the provision. >> regulation that is come out of treasury department in many cases aren't done yet, okay, foreign tax credits basically expiring because the way tax regime works. in the short term companies are opting to be more conservative and figure, you know, let's make sure we don't overdo it and give
6:15 am
way too many benefits that we will have to reverse in the future. it's really a timing issue. maria: what about the top story in the journal in terms of what's news, small businesses becoming more cautious, sitting on cash after they had a banner year in 2018 in terms of hiring, investment, this is what you look for in terms of lead indicator for the economy, business spending, is small business pulling back? >> let's go back to tax cuts for a second. at the end of 2017, the tax cuts sort of happened companies made needed more time to figure how it all meant and how they were going to change business and all of a sudden the tariff story happened and uncertainty about the global economy, i don't think businesses have had that much time to go out and invest and figure out what the future is, they are sitting on cash, one thing ceo's know if you don't invest you don't own future, small businesses are feeling harder than big
6:16 am
businesses are. the fact of the matter, i think you will see more business investment pick up. >> i have seen small businesses that i have been talking to in my research, they are concerned about all of the media hype about recession is coming, a recession is coming. they have being conservative saying we all say it's going to happen at end of 2019, 2020, they are prepare if r that. the question is what is really the issue, is it tax cuts or other things or everybody saying that this is about to happen? maria: economic confidence of small businesses, this is what the journal was looking at this morning, go ahead, dagen, what were you saying? dagen: did better than 3 market gauges, dow, s&p and nasdaq, they are not the smallest businesses, publicly-traded companies, that was double-digit gain in those stocks and investors were feeling optimistic about the landscape, granted russell 2000 is down
6:17 am
since august thereabouts but optimistism in the market, is the market getting it wrong is the question. maria: the level of confidence is at the lowest level since president trump's election. you mentioned the tariffs, i'm surprised that smaller businesses are worried about tariffs because these are largely domestic companies. these are not necessarily the companies that are doing -- dagen: steel tariffs have hurt them, steel tariffs have driven up the cost of steel and so many smaller manufacturers have been hit hard by this, the journal writes editorial today, everybody else is paying the bill. >> yeah. also we need to remember, investors gravitated towards mall -- small business. you commented on the fact that i've been out on speaking tour and when i speak to small business owners across the country they are generally optimistic and largely convinced
6:18 am
we were talking ourselves into a recession and when they look at fundamentals of business they feel pretty confident. maria: that's what you said, lee. >> what it seems like it was happening, i'm about to go on the road and interesting to see if the shift is happening too. for sure so much negativity out there. maria: it is, the u.s. is going strong because we had the job's numbers on friday, the u.s. resilient but at some point we are not living in a vacuum, europe is slowing, china is slowing, we will see. dagen: we are all nerds and we trade emails over the weekend, lindsey bell e-mailed me this what's going on with earnings expectation this year, first quarter growth, expectation zero growth. maria: 22. dagen: that's down from 5% growth at the beginning of the year, for 2019 it's only 3 and a half percent growth and that's
6:19 am
down from 6 and a half percent on january the first, those expectations rarely come down dramatically this one-month time and maybe sets us up for surprise but not good. maria: all on the heels on profit growth better than 20% in 2018, coming up ai threat from china, former google executive tells me artificial intelligence is among the biggest threats, we will bring you his comments coming up. elon musk of ship engine test, all that coming up right after this. as someone in witness protection, i can't tell you anything about myself.

6:24 am
out later this morning, what do you think? dagen: i think people turned off during half because it was atrocious game. maria: in third quarter, maybe the rams could do it. dagen: no. so terrible. i want to know do advertisers get discounts later in the show if the ratings collapse? 30 seconds is like 5 and a half, over 5 and a half, 5 and a half million dollars. if you waited to advertise later in the game you got a lot fewer eyeballs. >> i'm sure that's true, i'm sure they did not get a deal because you don't know in advance what kind of game it is. maria: that's why you pay up. dagen: i want my money back if i'm advertiser. >> it wasn't great football, there weren't great ads and certainly wasn't great half time show. maria: there you go.

6:31 am
troops to the southern border this coming as another migrant caravan is heading towards the united states as we speak, on sunday morning futures i spoke with lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to discuss how to tackle this issue of border security. where are we in talks over border security up against the february 15th deadline? >> it is tough to negotiate and get an agreement with people who are more focused on stopping the president than they are on helping the country. it doesn't take a genius, what are we now on the fifth caravan now going to be here any day in texas, anyone with common sense can see we need a border security wall, we need to secure our border, we need to reform asylum law if we are going to debate problem. >> what the professionals say where technology is best utilized and border fencing should be utilized and concrete barriers may make the most sense. i believe the best path for us to take would be to have comprehensive approach to this,
6:32 am
deals with the border security issues around which we may have some disagreement but also deals with larger immigration issues that we know sooner or later in this country we will have to get around to solving. maria: joining us washington examiner editorial director hugo gordon, i speak with different people on this issue, it feels like there is common ground, that everybody agrees you don't necessarily need a wall but then again there are areas that are quite dense that could use some kind of a physical barrier, can they come together with an agreement even though nancy pelosi and president trump are at each other and are digging in? >> i think they will have to, maria, you're right that there's common ground. i think that they've got stuck on the fact that people talk about the wall as though there's just one thing that is needed, the truth is what we need is more wall, there are plenty of places where there is wall but needs to be completed, needs to be actually a barrier, there are some parts which are mountainous which clearly don't need
6:33 am
barrier. so, you know, both sides want to government to get going but we've had months now of the democrats simply saying they are not going to give president trump the opportunity to claim that he kept his promise to build the wall and -- and i think they are going to have to come back and what's going to happen is we will get something which the democrats can say isn't a wall, it's a fence, it's security of some sort which they have always wanted and president trump will say, he got what he wanted, he got the barrier, he got some kind of security at the border. maria: people don't want to see politics, lee, the wall that separates tijuana from san diego, how is that not immoral? lee: i find it -- i'm sorry, i find it fascinating that when you change in polling the question to say are you in favor of a wall or are you in favor of stronger border security or are you in favor of -- if you're in
6:34 am
favor of a fence or stronger security or a physical barrier, anything besides the wall, support goes up by like 10 to 20 points depending how you phrase it, bottom line ask people stronger border security, they say yes. maria: they want it. >> that's symbolic with trump right now. if you take the wall out of the equation, call it something else they will probably get more support. dagen: hugo, last week nancy pelosi was talked about normandy fencing. she brought up -- she did not rule out certain other physical barriers, crisscross post. is there an opening here? >> look, i think there is and it's just the phrasing is the thing that's getting in the way. you know, one of the things people should remember is people have become kind of immune to the idea of people crossing the border i i legally, if there wee hundreds or sometimes hundreds of thousand people approaching the northern border or on ship
6:35 am
in the coast, people would be treating as extraordinary thing. everyone says it's what happens every day, there's no emergency. the truth is there is a crisis at the southern border because hundreds and sometimes thousands of people are crossing into the united states illegally. this doesn't happen anywhere else on any of the other borders. maria: interest, let's talk about the state of the union coming up tomorrow morning. 5 areas the president will touch on in tomorrow's state of the union, number one immigration system, number 2, protecting american workers on trade deal including china and nafta and number 3 rebuilding america with respect to infrastructure, number 4, lowering health care for prescription drugs and number 5 national security including the potential wall. so this debate on the state of the union around immigration,
6:36 am
hugo, the journal is reporting that guests be invited to the capitol will reflect partisan immigration divide. republicans reportedly plan to go invite law enforcement, democrats will invite undocumented immigrants who work at golf clubs owned by president trump. i just feel like it's all politics all of the time instead of getting the work done that the american people want. >> yeah, that's absolutely right. look, illegal immigrants come in and no doubt there have been some that have worked at president trump's properties, it's a way of embarrassing the president, it doesn't get anything done. there's a lot more sympathy for border security, you know, for the police, for ice, for the border patrol, you know, those people are doing legitimate job, the country understands that there's a need for that, every time every one of us go through airport we go through immigration, everybody knows that there should be border security and having people in
6:37 am
the audience who do that kind of work and who are advising the administration about what they need are going to be much more sympathetic people to mass audience than some illegal immigrant. dagen: i said this privately and i will say publicly now, this literally comes down to nancy pelosi at all cost trying to avoid president trump saying on the campaign trail when he's running for reelection, you know what, méxico didn't pay for the wall, nancy pelosi wrote the check. that's what she's trying to avoid and that's simple as it goes because she has to know being from california that walls work as you pointed out time again. maria: there's 1 and a half million people on one side of the wall in san diego and another 1 and a half million on the other side in tijuana and if you tear down the wall you have to believe that the people of tijuana assimilate themselves, the wall has worked and in a dense place like that we have so many people right around the
6:38 am
wall, you would expect that a wall would work. >> but this is amazing moment in american history to resolve comprehensive immigration reform once and more all. maria: i think that people understand that. they see right through this all. lee: i think that the president was on the right path when he started talking about what we need here, it was also the wall and humanitarian aid because one of the things republicans are take luight of heat for we are not treating people like humans and i think that the truth of the matter is the policies are looking for as republicans are not to say let's treat these people terribly, let's bring them in legally, let's get -- maria: that's right. >> i think that's what the republicans need to focus on. maria: i wonder if all the dem women where wear white, that's another thing that the leadership is asking people to do. all right, thank you, hugo, great to see you this morning, thank you so much for weighing in here. >> thanks, maria. maria: jury in the el chapo
6:39 am
trial set to start deliberations today, lauren simonetti on that story and headlines now, lauren. lauren: 12 jurors expected to start weighing evidence against el chapo in new york federal court following 10 weeks of testimony, mexican drug lord faces 10 charges related to drug trafficking and he could receive life in prison if found guilty. and check this out, elon musk is showing off spacex's powerful raptor rocket engine, look at the thrust, it's unbelievable. designed to power power to the moon and beyond, musk celebrated first test fire by tweeting about it. announced that japanese ceo had bought seats to travel around the moon in year 2023. and we have an answer for you, hershey's kisses finally getting tips, they struggle to find a
6:40 am
perfect kisses for their -- their holiday season, perfect kisses will be hitting shelves, can't guaranty valentine's day but they are coming. maria: i want my kisses in one place, ai and american jobs, former google executive tells me artificial intelligence is biggest threat among the workforce in the next 15 years, what industries will go away. tom brady and ron gronkowski hammer it out on instagram, why videos are raising some eyebrows, back in a minute. did you know with vanishing deductible, you can earn $100 off your deductible for every year of safe driving? sing that. ♪ vanishing deductible, you can... ♪

6:42 am
but when i started seeing things, i didn't know what was happening... so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong... but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid. the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion.
6:43 am
we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid.
6:44 am
maria: welcome, the threat of artificial intelligence and particularly from china, on sunday morning futures yesterday i spoke with former of -- president of google china, we talked about ip theft among other things. some people says it doesn't matter if china are stealing ip tomorrow, they are still ahead in terms of ai, can you assess what sophistication china has in this regard? >> i think the ip issue is
6:45 am
different field by field but in the area which we invest in mobile internet and ai there hasn't been active theft, it's how fast you run and how fast you make technology forward. researchers public papers and open domain open source, chinese and american companies use it. so in the mobile and ai area china -- chinese companies have been running faster, so it's kind of catching up in terms of creating businesses and value, speech recognition, drones and things like that, china is not dependent on american ip in this particular area, i wouldn't say all technology area. maria: there are now what's called centers in and around silicon valley, chinese think tank and ultimately these are being seating places where you've got different people, talented people back and forth in universities, i think it's
6:46 am
really hard to separate how china became the number one in ai and whether or not there was ip theft there, dagen, what do you think? dagen: i absolutely agree, we have to hope that the people who live and work in this country, whether they work in universities, whether they work in large technology corporations understand the risk and guarding themselves against the risk of theft, of espionage and the like and i would think that individuals are smarter than others. maria: within the next 15 years lee said there are a number of industries, jobs that would go away, chauffeurs, drivers, i wonder what you think about the future of work, waitresses another area, doctors will change he said, although he said if you have a specialty like research on alzheimer's or other
6:47 am
specialties then that will take a few more years. >> i think like it was said last week, the fact of the matter, you look at what the copy machine and fax machine did to disrupt offices in america that are gone forever that we have replaced them with other jobs, i'm not too worried about this because at the end to have day jobs eliminated, new jobs would be created. maria: we just don't know what the -- dagen: but that didn't happen when it came to manufacturing jobs in the country. if you look at my hometown in virginia, it used to be a thriving little up -- town with tobacco, i understand the decrease use there, the furniture manufacturing jobs went away because of trade and this is not something that happened overnight, people saw it coming primarily a few decades but nobody did anything about it.
6:48 am
>> since world war ii, service jobs have risen and manufacturing jobs have fallen. maria: goes back to education. we need much stronger education policy which zeros in on engineering and where the growth and the economy is. yesterday i spoke with michigan congressman dan, he weighed on the threat of artificial intelligence as well as the other threats in his constituency. who is the bigger threat, china, illegals taking jobs, i think it's a combination of all three, what do you think? >> well, i think it is for the most part it is -- technology obviously has had impact on manufacturing, that's clearly a threat, but china, for sure, when china can produce cheap steel and dump it in global market that undermines manufacturer to compete. until we get trade right and a way that ensures that our workers can compete on an even playing field, those other factors are important but they

are not going to be as important as getting trade right. maria: you think about the michigan manufacturing in the country and they are under attack not just from illegals but more so from ai, from technology and also from china. >> i have a friend that manufacturers products, most of them are manufactured in china. so just not high technology that the ip is being stolen, it's even dies that are used in consumer goods that are stolen. maria: takes you back to the issue, we discussed last week, dagen, what is -- what is the right trade deal, if china is willing to open up markets to financial services, what does that do to trump's manufacturing base? they're not going to take on manufacturing goods from the u.s., they're manufacturing products and selling them to the world and that's why air quality. dagen: president trump has
6:50 am
fixation on manufacturing goods rather than our services because, again, we are a service's economy. we make less and less in terms of manufacturing products. we have a trade surplus with canada but if you listen to the white house they will remember last year they were arguing about that we have a trade deficit which we just don't if you include services in that equation and so is his base being helped by the steel and aluminum tariffs, i say no. maria: which is why i don't think it's acceptable to do a deal with china when china says buying more stuff, buying more soybeans, buying more grains, i think there's a real issue with ip. dagen: if you started the fight you better resolve ip theft, espionage, forced surrender of technology. maria: we will see, ad upsetting america's corn farmers.

maria: welcome back. ed good monday morning, everybody. thanks so for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is monday, february 4th. your top stories right now. big week for earnings once again. alphabet is the one we're focused on this morning. we will hear from alphabet, parent of google, later today. later this week, disnigh, general motors, snap, all on tap. we've got everything you need to know in terms of fourth quarter earnings and the impact. markets this morning have turned lower. take a look. dow industrials off of the best levels of the day, of the morning, rather, but still a gain of 4 points on the dow. the nasdaq up 3 1/4 points.
7:01 am
this after the mixed close for the major indices on friday. the dow and s&p 500 finished higher for a sixth week in a row. up 64 points on the dow on friday, s&p was up 2 1/2 points. the nasdaq was down 17 points on friday. in europe, the major indices are mixed. fx100 up 20 points, the cac in paris is lower by a half a percent and the dax index in germany down 30 points. most asian markets were closed overnight for a holiday. it is of course the chinese new year. in japan, the market was up about 1/2 of 1%. oil in focus this morning, new concerns for the industry amid major protests in venezuela over the weekend. oil at $55.15 a barrel. the fallout coming up. the patriots win the super bowl. it's adam levine who is breaking his silence over the controversial half time performance. we'll talk about it, his shirt

7:03 am
sounds like there will be a lot of showdowns. i don't remember the guests being previewed on both sides of the aisle. i remember the president talking about who he is going to bring. then having the opposition coming in with their set. i think the whole thing will be -- what did you callin call it? >> cringey. maria: how will the president talk about nancy pelosi and how she's fighting him tooth and nail with her sitting right there. the republicans will bring law enforcement as their guest and the democrats are bringing illegal immigrants. dagen: there's one congresswoman from new york who is bringing a daca recipient who is a rhodes scholar and he's afraid to leave the united states for fear that he can't get back into the u.s. let's just point out that daca protections at least temporary ones were on the table and the democrats turned their backs on that. so point that out. maria: where do we stand with the deal? that's our top story this hour. the clock is ticking with two
7:04 am
weeks to go until the government shuts down again. this comes as more troops and another caravan make their way tto the southern border. president trump is considering whether to he declare a national emergency. yesterday i asked whether house speak her nancy pelosspeaker nar forth money for the wall. she has said there will be no money for any wall, anywhere. there will be a dollar, not more than that, because the wall is immoral. isn't there a growing group of colleagues on the left, your colleagues, that say exactly what you just said, which is practical, that there should be money for everything including in areas where it makes sense, a physical barrier. >> in the past she said where it makes sense to have physical barriers, we support physical barriers. >> it's not a question about spending the dollars, it's a
7:05 am
question i suppose which is either politics, which come enates, when you have the speaker saying not one dollar for a wall and you have the president insisting on a wall, in part because that's what he campaigned on and was elected on. it becomes politics. but it's not a financial -- it's not a budgetary issue. maria: joining me right now is texas congressman, medical doctor, michael burgues. thank you for joining us. >> good morning, thanks for having me on. maria: do you think this gets resolved? most people see right through this, that this is politics that there are areas where we need physical barriers and other areas where we don't. >> it certainly gets very interesting tomorrow night when the principals are gathered in one place. the president said he needs money for physical barriers. i think there is -- at least i've heard the past several days some agreement from democratic
7:06 am
colleagues that physical barriers are important, are part of the solution. i'm a little disappointed the conference committee wasn't in washington over the weekend, as my understanding. they really need to be getting the information from the experts, presented. we're all going to have to vote on whatever it is they come up with in a few weeks' time. so i'd like to see maximum effort on this. maria: the president has been saying over the last couple days that the wall is already being built and that he's expecting 115 miles of wall to be built in the short term. so where is that money coming from? one of my guests yesterday said that there's about a half -- there's about a half a billion dollars in the homeland security committee, the office of the homeland security, rather, that is from confiscated drug money.
7:07 am
is that use -- if it hasn't been allocated, the president can use that money, right? >> well -- there are dollars in the account from previous appropriations. not sure about your other story about the confiscated drug money. yeah, there's money in the accounts. so there is work ongoing at the present time and the president's correct about that. maria: he can begin the building? he can begin it? >> the building has been going on for years. in 2006, secure fence act said we were going to secure the southern border. nancy pelosi and chuck schumer voted for it. i think barack obama when he was a senator voted for it. the authorization from congress is there. the dollars need b be supplied. maria: people recognize that they voted for it before, that there's a wall in california, nancy pelosi state dividing
7:08 am
tijuana from san diego. yet, this politicking keeps going on. even the guests will be divided at the state of the union tomorrow night. the journal is reporting republicans are planning to invite law enforcement officials while democrats are inviting undocumented immigrants who work at golf clubs owned by president trump. >> it will be an interesting juxtaposition. i'm going to bring a constituent who lost a daughter hit by a car driven by someone in the country who was not here legally. he was a veteran and came to me one day and said i put on the uniform and i was doing my job in iraq. if you had been doing your job, congressman, my daughter would still be here. that was pretty tough to take. i invited him to the state of the uniform i hop--the state of. i hope he will be able to be there. maria: you're a medical doctor. the president is expected to talk about lowering costs for healthcare and prescription drugs. what are you expecting to hear
7:09 am
out of the state of the union tomorrow night? >> i think the rebate issue that came up last week and for companies to be able to directly reimburse patients rather than middlemen or third party intermediaries or insurance companies, to proked vied these rebates directly to patients, that seems to make a lot of sense. i expect we may hear the president talk about that. of course, his trade policies have been front and center for some time. so i expect we'll hear him -- he ran on that. he won on that. i expect to hear him talk about his trade policies as well. maria: what will you be listening for specifically within healthcare? >> within healthcare, you know, a year ago he laid it out and said pharmaceutical prices are too high and they're going to come down. trust me, they're going to come down. i think he is going to continue to push that point. the work that the secretary of health and human services has done with the index pricing, with drugs sold on a global market, that's been interesting.
7:10 am
got a lot of people upset. but the same time it's been an interesting approach. i think you're likely to hear a continuation of that discussion the president's put out before. maria: do you think this is going to be the next two years of just fighting between the democrats and the president, that you guys get nothing done for two years? how's that going to play on people going into 2020 and r another presidential election? >> well, it was north net that the first two -- fortunate that the first two years of the trump administration were so productive. i think you're correct, we've entered into the 2020 presidential race early. iowa is still a year away but every day that goes by there's a new seemingly legitimate democratic candidate. the press as we all know has been aligned against this president right from the get-go. and he will continue to -- he'll continue to have to carry all of that burden and, yet, somehow this administration manages to get things done. so i will tell you from the
7:11 am
standpoint of being in the congress, we got more done the first two years of the trump ad medicinaddadministration than ts 15 years. when people look at the accomplishments in the first two years of the administration, they were significant. goodness knows, you talk about people talking down the economy, that worries me too. i don't know why that is happening, except that one way they see to defeat the president is to tank the economy. but that's a terrible, terrible deal for the american people. maria: it certainly looks good so far, the numbers have continued to show a strengthening economy in the u.s. congressman, it's good to see you this morning. thanks so much. >> good deal. thank you. maria.maria: coming up, papa js gets a new ceo and getting a big investment. the details next. stock is up 6.5% right now. plus, fortnite concert going viral. fans of the pop r late popular e

maria: welcome back. russia investigation in focus, president trump speaking out on the mueller report and whether it will be released to the public. >> i think it's a terrible thing that's happened to this country, because this investigation is a witch hunt. it's a terrible witch hunt. and it's a disgrace. >> would you make the mueller report public because you say there's nothing in there. >> totally up to the attorney general. >> what do you want them to do? >> even the mueller report said it had nothing to do with the campaign. when you look at some of the people and the events, it had nothing to do -- >> you wouldn't have a if this
7:21 am
became public? >> excuse me. it's up to the attorney general. i have no idea what it's going to say. it's been a total witch hunt. it doesn't implicate me in any way. maria: joining me right now, judge andrew napolitano. judge, good to see you this morning. >> sometimes the wish is the father of reality. his wish is that it doesn't touch him. we haven't seen it. even referred to the mueller report, i think he misspoke. there is no mueller report of which we are aware. maria: we know there was fisa abuse, judge. >> there's no question about that. he has a very legitimate claim about the abuse of power against him. part of that abuse of power is institutional. fisa made it easier for fbi to get warrants, to surveil people, which article 3 judges, you have to go in with probable cause of crime, would never grant. maria: they didn't tell the judge that hillary clinton and the dems paid for it. >> they didn't tell the judge half of what they should have
7:22 am
told him. the president is correct when he says it's up to the attorney general. the attorney general at the time presumably will be bill barr. i don't think it will happen in the next two weeks. barr should be in office by the end of this month. maria: the end of the month? >> yes. according to senator graham, the chair of the judiciary committee. he stated several times this is not a witch hunt. he has also said, as has senator mcconnell n. wan, they want as h of this to be made public as possible. it all goes to the attorney general. in my view, it will be several reports at several different times. it will not be one report all at once. there are many rabbit holes down which mueller and crew have gone, some of which they've exhausted and they can write a report and they've got indictments, in some cases convictions. others, they're still gathering evidence. in roger stone's case, for example, the earliest that trial
7:23 am
will be next fall or a year from now. does that mean mueller could bee around that long? he could pass it to other investigators if he shuts it down. how could the report become public? the attorney general could release it. the attorney general could keep it secret. congress could subpoena it. now we have an issue. will the doj comply with a congressional subpoena? presumably they should. what happens when someone in congress gets it and it's got classified all over it? what did senator feinstein do with 6,000 pages of classified material about torture? brought them to the floor of the senate and released them where she is immune from civil criminal ethical liability. so once this gets in the hands of any member of congress, particularly a democrat, it will become public. maria: congressman jim jordan joined me yesterday to talk about the mueller report and the phi say abuses. here's what he said. robert mueller's report, when
7:24 am
are you expecting it, can it be incredible without him looking at what you call fisa abuse? >> i think there's real concerns with how the sai process was handled -- how the fisa process was handled. another big hearing, matthew whitaker will be in front of the house judiciary committee on friday, these are questions we plan to ask him as well, see if he'll give any indication of when mr. mueller's report will be completed. >> i agree with everything congressman jordan just said. it would be shocking to me if bob mueller were to look at the fisa abuse. he would be undermining what in my opinion is uncons tewingal, , unlawful, but standard procedure for fbi agents. i don't think he wants to go there. this operating procedure was standard for fbi agents when he was the head of the fbi. this is not shocking or new to him. i'll be surprised if he goes there. jim jordan and company will have to do this on their own. dagen: wouldn't president trump
7:25 am
want the whole mueller report released? wouldn't he want that. >> i think that's a question that margaret brennan put to him yesterday. i wish he had said yes, because i have nothing to fear from the truth. instead, he very cautiously, probably pursuant to advice from his lawyers said i don't know what's in there, some crazy person that mueller thinks is credible could have accused me of some awful thing. maria: once the mueller report is out, i bet the president declassifies all of the documents that people want declassified so we can see officially what happened in the 2016 elections. >> that is a problem with foreign partners. the british and the israelis lobbied the president very, very aggressively and so far successfully not to reveal what fisa had because their fingerprints are in there. remember, he said okay, i'm going to turn it over to the inspector general and the doj. where is it now? maria: don h uber is missing in action, he was supposed to
7:26 am
investigate all this. >> he's still at the doj. he has a team of deputies attorneys general and fbi agents that work for him. but you're right, we haven't heard a peep. that may come out at the same time as well. maria: judge, thanks so much. >> all the best, guys. maria: coming up, chaos in venezuela, sanctions hitting the oil-rich country, potentially hitting u.s. refineries. we've got details. a grammy nominated rapper arrested by i.c.e., 21 savage allegedly overstayed his visa 12 years ago and now he may be deported. details next up. ♪ i ain't as good as i once was. ♪ i've got a you fe few years oe now. ♪ but there was a time, back in my prime, when i could really lay it down. more than half of employees across the country bring financial stress to work.

a brent oil is above $63 a barrel as opec supply cuts and the response to u.s. sanctions on venezuela kick in. prices are now at $55.14 a barrel on crude and brent is at $62.78. u.s. crude broke a three-month losing streak, posting the best january on record. joining us right now is tom klosa. thank you for joining us. >> hi, maria. maria: how does venezuela fit into this in terms of the supply and demand story on oil? >> well, venezuela has been losing oil production for the last few years. they did it during the chavez years and during the maduro years but they still provide about 600,000 barrels of crude in the united states. think about crude as carbohydrates and protein. they have a crude oil that's like a protein and the world needs right now. there's a pretty good chance i
7:33 am
think this quarter that we go from venezuela to vendomonium and we don't have venezuelan crude and it fortifies prices throughout the world. >> one of the things we're seeing in other markets, stocks and bonds, for example, is rising prices and it's suggesting that investors are putting risk back on. so when you look at some other asset classes like oil, is the fact that oil's going up also has something to do with investors rotating in as they put risk on and look for places to park their money. >> it's an interesting construct and we'll find out in the next few weeks. one of the problems of the government shutdown was we lost the pictures that the cfdc, commodity future trading commission takes of those investor money flows. but i think you're right. i think that the money flow is coming back into oil. it's a good way to play what could be otherwise disastrous with losing venezuelan oil and
7:34 am
so i think money is the biggest fundamental and it's flowing back into mostly long positions in oil. dagen: tom, this is a wonky he question. it's dagen mcdowell. venezuelan oil is heavy and sour, isn't it, unlike the texas light sweet. if we lose that oil, can we replace that type of crude easily where it's refined right now? because those refineries aren'tt really make those switches easily to refine a different type of crude. >> you can always run the light and the sweet. the problem with the light and ththe sweet is that you get a lt of gasoline. gasoline is the world's undesired hydrocarbon. it's odd, people think venezuela will send the price of gasoline high e. when in fact it may mean we're going to have too much gasoline production from u.s. refineries. if they had their druthers they would rather have the h heavy
7:35 am
crude and make diesel and jet fuel and products that pay a big premium out there. if i had a diesel car or an airline i'm a little more worried than if i drive a motor fuel-filled car. maria: earlier today, several european countries including spain, france, the u.k., recognized vince wa venezuela's opposition leader, mr. guaidos, as the company's interim president. with that unrest, what else do you think happens that could affect u.s. refineries? i mean, is this a major impact for u.s. refineries? >> it could be. i mean, i think that when you game this out, you have to game it out and you have to figure that there's a possibility that venezuela will not be exporting any crude oil in the first half of 2019. you know, what they have right now is a trickle compared to what they used to and some of it goes to india, some of it goes to china, some of it goes to the
7:36 am
united states. but there's a scramble. it's as though there's a buffet and there's a lot of items at the buffet that aren't there right now for u.s. refiners. the last thing they want to do is make nor gasoline. there's -- more gasoline. there's too much of it. they can't get the price of crude oil for the price of gasoline. it's more of an economic annoyance for u.s. refiners. for the world, if we lose 1 million barrels a day ovens o venezuelan crude, we lose libyan crude because they've had problems there, or we have tougher sanctions on iran, we'll see higher prices but not apoc e numbers. maria: how does the market change in the next five years? >> next five years, i think you're going to see the united states exporting occasionally 4
7:37 am
and 5 million barrels a day of crude oil, maybe more. we will be the largest crude oil exporter, beyond russia and saudi arabia. we'll be producing much more than russia and saudi arabia, but we'll be using quite a bit of it. so as long as the price stays in the $50 range or higher, we'll see shale come on and we'll be producing three times the amount of shale oil that we did as recently as like 2012. maria: that's incredible. tom, it's good to see you this morning. >> it is. good to see you too. it is energy dominance. it's lining up just for terrific production numbers from the u.s. companies. maria: really amazing. tom, thank you. we'll see you soon. >> thanks, maria. maria: coming up, walmart provides new benefits, the company giving employees paid time off as well as other perks. we've got all the details. fortnite concert going viral,

7:49 am
well, i don't know, i'm thinking about it, what's happening. well, according to the internet this morning he's basically talking about the speculation, will he or won't he retire after this super bowl. i don't know. i think he's going to stick around. that was my take. that was eminem without me playing underneath that instagram video. now to the halftime show. apolitical. as in not political halftime show, maria. it was a straight show. there was talk that travis scott was maybe going to kneel at some point during the halftime show. he did not. there was concerns about that. of course, maroon 5 came out, adam levine came out, it was quite a performance. watch. ♪ is there anyone out there. ♪ atlanta! cheryl: he broke his silence on instagram last night, as well, adam levine did, responding to

halftime show. cardi b didn't show up. there were rumors she might. she didn't. it was about football and the fans. maria: i'm glad they kept politics out of it. the fire really started when he took his shirt off, dagen. dagen: i don't know if that was fire. [ laughter ] dagen: you want me to read what i tweeted last night? i said oh, i missed adam levine with his shirt off, i was busy lansing this boil on my arm. kidding. [ laughter ] dagen: cardi b did perform over the super bowl weekend and there's video of bob craft wandering onto the stage and dancing with cardi b. better leave that in your bathroom, mr. craft. i mean, you can brag about this super bowl win, but that's worth revisiting. if you've got time at the office today, being hungover and under-slept. maria: bottom line, they've won

patriots. maria: they keep winning. dagen: cheryl's a cowboy's fan, she knows the feeling. maria: you knew they were going to win. did the whole crowd think they were going to win from the get-go. cheryl: if you look at the betting out of vegas, and online betting as well, the odds were on the patriots, absolutely. that's where the money was going. look, the rams had a really strong defense. that's why you had a really low scoring game. which frankly a lot of people are calling boring this morning. but you you've got to give it to tom brady. i'm glad you mentioned julian edelman. he was the big star last night even though tom brady gets all the attention. maria: i like the coach of the rams. he seems like a good guy. shawn. cheryl: there's always next year. as i say as a cowboy's fan every year, there's always next year. maria: that's what the saints are saying too. cheryl, come back soon. we'll see you at home. thank you so much. cheryl: miss you guys, see you soon. maria: looking at markets this

8:06 am
wall the idea border wall doesn't work or amoral is ridiculous i do think the president has an opportunity here notice how many democrats have been talking in recent days about we want to hear what ebbsperts have to say this morning we had, you know somebody from the democrats talking on our companion network about evidence based wall the president out to say look i have been talking about wall i want to show you the people who have been talking to be about it, here are the experts inside the department of homeland security viecadvisi me where to repair and extended the wall i want you to listen to them put me inside for a moment listen to experts they will tell you what we need to do. maria: you are right, not only that there seems to be a movement within the democratic party to get something done and whether it means money for fulfill barrier as well as drones technology et cetera there is a movement breaking with nancy pelosi, because they know this is just a political fight.
8:07 am
>> yeah look you've got 32 democrats occupy seats that were won by donald trump in 2016, of course, those kinds of members are sitting there saying i am not going home and say abolish ice not going to say walls don't work not going home and say we don't need to wor about southern border i've got a district people are concerned about those kind of things, aoc, gentrified district in brooklyn queens bronx i've got a district in middle america wor about it. >> michigan and hae. >> right. >> one of the things i am curious about i know the polling says more people blame the president than they do democrats, but 50% blame trump then 50% still blame the democrats for where we are. at the same time, the president polling numbers one thing has increased since this that is that he will fight for what he believes in. so people are going to say he means what he says says what he means that is something got him in office in the first place because he seemed like a different politicians do you think in any way, this might
8:08 am
help him? >> look there are minor advantages out of there overly overly depressed ubs numbers only good news is nancy pelosi unfavorably risen more remain she is not running against him next year will be a fresh face from democrats to fiduciary how far left are they going to be? shutdown never good are particularly if willing to take blame for it what the president did on this one the pressure is on if the president steps back a little bit, makes it less about him more about here are the experts that i am listening to, if you don't want to believe me okay fine, but i want you to listen to someone in charge of our border security human region be in charge of the listen to the person in charge of border security in san diego region if possible find a way to gently say you know what if you really believe wall are immoral put a bill forward in
