let's begin with what donald trump tweeted out on the russia collusion case, they had nothing to do with meddling in the election. where is the dnc server? why didn't james comey and the fbi agents examine it, why isn't hillary russia being looks at? so many questions, so much corruption. as was evidenced yesterday in the hearing with ray and rosenstein, this is taking front and center in the united states. a lot of controversy involving the russia investigation. do you think that will overshadow this particular meeting taking place on july 16th. >> number one he's not stupid, number 2 he is in new york and put those together and the president knows that his relationship with russia and this investigation are so politically charged and it is a button he can push whenever he
wants and it drives people to distraction. he does that and does it intentionally. shannon: why would you do that when there are so many important things that can be discussed? do you think we can move this relationship forward? do you think the meeting is wise? >> substantively there is not a lot we can do. the administration has been consistent on this. there are lots of things in the world that are bad. we predicated better relationship on stopping doing bad things and we have seen little evidence of that. having said that this president likes other leaders, he values them, he won't stop doing that and in many ways is no different from every european leader. they all meet with vladimir putin and talk to him because they are our neighbor, it is not the cold war, there is not a solid wall. we have to have a discussion
going back and forth. shannon: he met with vladimir putin twice before but this is the first official summit. >> those are sideline meetings, this is the first set up meeting where the two our meeting and our discussions about an agenda being forecast, we have two things here, the north korea model where after-the-fact we are confident 98% was cooked. pompeo works everything out and they talked for a couple hours and were done. we don't know what we have. is this another meeting that is cooked and there is no substance or is it a meeting where the president puts things on the table? there are all kinds of rumors, we don't know which ones. shannon: there is the issue of having it in helsinki which is in home territory for russia. you mentioned north korea and i ask that about the next topic, new satellite images showing north korea operating their
nuclear facility. what is going on? >> the underlying strategy of pressure, deterrence, missile defense, protect our interests. we will see what the north koreans do. we have these photos but don't know what they represent and pompeo is going back to north korea. we will see. heather: we will see what happens, july 16th quickly approaching. the time is 20 minutes after the hour. a free pass to smoke pot, punishment for marijuana. could go up in smoke thanks to chuck schumer? as part addiction skyrockets is this a good idea? your comments are pouring in and jackie ibanez joining them up next, good morning. ♪ ♪ than i have ever been lifted before

minorities, get $500 million for medical marijuana research and give states the power to erase pot position, releasing a statement saying, quote, the time to decriminalize marijuana is now. this legislation is the right thing to do. the measure would keep some regulations in place like federal law enforcement against trafficking marijuana to states where it remains illegal and to decide that. recreational marijuana is legal in 9 states in washington dc and medically in 30 states but claims that marijuana is not addictive losing steam. 2.7 million americans are physically dependent on it, behind alcohol. donald trump said he may support legislation as long as it protects state rights to make
their own decision. shannon: your thoughts pouring into the newsroom. so desperate, posting and instagram what else do they have to go on. not a we smoke are but a good idea. we want people to keep their ideas and thoughts coming in to us. the time is 26 minutes after the top of the hour. a titanic fight over replacing justice anthony kennedy, laws already on the books in the spotlight. what key issues could return to the supreme court? a constitutional attorney breaks it down. a live look at the plasma where toby mac is getting ready for the american summer concert series. if you are in the area join us. ♪

you ever campaigned with him because when donald trump was trying to win florida in 2016 adam putnam did not attend a single rally with him, you couldn't find out about them if you had a search warrant. >> donald trump has endorsed desantis, they will face-off in the gop primary august 20th can both opening to succeed rick scott. the weekend is here which means lots of folks getting outside but if you are a mom in some of these states it will be hot hot hot. >> reporter: absolutely right. this is probably the hottest next couple days we have seen the entire year, already warm early this morning, this temperature is current, 84 in kansas city, warm air in the
plane states in the midwest lingering all the way through the weekend and spreading further east as we continue into the weekend. everything the red are heat advisories to watch in the morning but the red are heat warnings with numbers up to 105 ° at least for a few like temperature. when you combine the heat and humidity you get what it feels like outside. we are running into the 105 range or so. this is your heat index, 110 is what will feel like in st. louis, 105 in chicago, 105 in kansas city, this lingers into the weekend. it stays hot hot hot like you said. heather: great to have you with us this morning. supreme court justice anthony kennedy's swing vote changed supreme court history but after he leaves the high court many of those cases may return to the docket so which issues could a new just display a pivotal role on? here to weigh in his constitutional attorney mark smith. thank you for joining us. we could be back where we have been already, correct? >> reporter: justice kennedy was a titan of the supreme court
come his departure was momentous. he was on the court for three decades, and whoever replaces him has shoes to fill. >> becoming more liberal ones appointed, strong word for abor gun-control or whatnot and republican pres.s and donald trump is no different when someone who will interpret the constitution in a fair and honest way like an umpire in a baseball game. we will see someone who follows
that kind of cool. heather: a constitutionalist. let's go to the cases, you mentioned abortion. >> this is the big thing, abortion and potential reversal and overturning of roe v wade is the sort of thing democrats have been talking about and they go right after that, play the card right away, they have been playing that card since the nomination by ronald reagan and sandra day o'connor and roe v wade remains the law of the land. i think again it hasn't been overturned in 30 years, why would that be different in the future and if it is overturned all it is saying is let the states and voters decide what to do about abortion, it doesn't outlaw abortion, just let the people decide. heather: affirmative-action as well.
>> based on race discrimination, largely on the way out anyway. it still exists but very narrowly tailored. the trend is to get rid of race-based decisions, the trend will continue, willing to go with that in a few instances and realistically affirmative-action based on race will go away in the next -- heather: chevron dr. in an administrative state. >> one of these nerdy topics that is important but the chevron doctor says administrative agency is like the environmental protection agency, if they issue a regulation or rule, courts dever
but you have the epa or any deep state agency is propagating the rule and enforcing the rule and prosecuting people under the rule, the new trend is to say we are not going to d for 2 bureaucrats in terms of what the law is, to second-guess those decisions, and following along, and the chevron doctrine referring to agencies and regulators will cease to exist and courts have a greater say in administrative states. heather: gay-rights. >> will the right to gay marriage be overturned? the answer is no, no chance of that. where gay-rights could be influenced going forward, the notion or trends, games being allowed to serve under federal law and see that in recent
cases. and a broadening of the right to sue, that won't go away but that is what you are looking at. the eyes of major litigation by gay groups and gay individuals won't take place under federal law because of this change. shannon: we need to get you on twitter because people need to know this information. thank you for joining us. the time is 20 minutes until the top of the our, california cracking down on social media, a move to protect your privacy. what will it mean for sites like facebook and google and what you need to know before logging on this morning?

what people are sharing, in that case you filter that, you choose what you like to see and what you don't like to see. patty: 1 to know what i had for dinner, make sure you always see that. that is good information because we can take control of what they see themselves. >> a small amount when zuckerberg promised to give us greater control and they are on the big giant apology tour but let's talk about twitter, jack dorsey, ceo of twitter on june 7th came out saying i'm a left-winger and so is the company that employed a letter to everybody. last week he is reported to be in washington in the georgetown area at a big powerhouse restaurant, eating some crawl, republican leadership including a top aide at the white house, to find a way to make our leadership believe twitter can
