weapon. i think there's a good chance we will be. >> donald trump ending he could meet with iran's leader. the white house hitting the regime hard with crushing economic sanctions we've been telling you about over its missile program. what could historic summit mean for middle east peace efforts? joining me is brett bella coverage. appreciate having you here. what do you think of the possibility of a meeting? >> the idea of this meeting is truly to reduce tensions in the gulf and also the ability for the iranian's to make a nuclear bomb then i'm all for it but i wanted to be on our own terms. we've been down this road before and can just have meetings for the sake of having meetings or to score political points, the president in this case has seen
what happened with the last administration, bad deal after bad deal where we paid off the iranian regime to reduce their nuclear ambitions only for the sake of what seemed to be scoring political points and claiming false victory in the president has the responsibility to fix past mistakes but i see complications and obstacles with having substantive meetings in the near-term. we are talking meeting with iranian president rouhani. he doesn't wield much power. he has to answer to a nominee. the other thing, if he is meeting with rouhani and the foreign minister we don't know if that is designed to be a deceitful action on their case. we have this national pressure campaign that could ruin what we know is happening which is putting maximum pressure on the iranian's. shannon: this was rouhani's
response to ending the standoff, he is willing to meet. if it could resolve problems i will not hesitate to do so among other things he said but what could a deal look like that as you said would be comparable to what the administration of obama did which is to score political points? >> we just got to stop them from having the capacity of building a nuclear capability. we know they are creating mischief and chaos throughout the middle east, they think they can control the persian gulf, they want to be the ones to be able to maintain safety but in fact they are trying to set -- tolls within the strait. and their supposed to be protectors of this area but a jamming navigational agreement of some steps to pretend they are occurring in their territory and that is the to see that has no bounds they will continue that unless we continue the
maximum pressure campaign. shannon: appreciate having you with us as always, the time is 17 after the top of the hour and taylor swift took aim at the white house. >> it means that you want a world where all are treated equally. >> he wasn't the only one. carly shimkus has political punches from the award show, stay with us. hey! i'm bill slowsky jr.,

are more in line with republicans been young people in their own party. >> interesting how this plays out in the upcoming election and if that will determine what candidate they support. >> i think people like joe biden would like to hear older democrats are more in line with conservatives because that proves the point there is a need for a candidate in the middle-of-the-road. >> apparently in a tie. appreciate it, 26 after the top of the hour and a socialist surge, a new poll showing a 3-way tie between joe biden, elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. is this the beginning of the end for the former vice president? we will debate next. i'm alex trebek here to tell you

mccabe. according to the new york times, lawyers for the former deputy fbi director just met with doj attorneys which could indicate a possible indictment. a source tells fox news mccabe has had a, quote, target on his back since an inspector general report revealed his involvement in the clinton email investigation and surveillance warrant against the trump administration. mccabe was ousted from the agency last year. he is suing the fbi and doj over his firing, much more to come on that. and her mccabe remains front and center of the probe into how the russia investigation began. former congressman jason chaffetz says mccabe's corruption runs deep. >> he did something most other federal employees never do. he got fired for cause, not only recommendation from the inspector general for lying and misleading them and not telling the truth to them, the lack of
candor but you have to run the gauntlet with your peers. his peers actually did this and he got to bring in his wife was a little known fact about this case, he recused himself because his wife was going to run for state senate seat in virginia, then he decided to get rid of that recusal, then hillary clinton is about to win so he takes a recusal back in. it is so fishy that he got fired and if hillary clinton had won this guy would be the number 2 person at the department of justice for the fbi, pretty scary. >> the inspector general let's report detailing potential wrongdoing by the fbi related to the russia report could be released as early as mid-september. massachusetts, joe kennedy considering a run for senate, the democrat fighter statement
of candidacy monday setting up a potential blockbuster primary against senator edward markey, grandson of robert f kennedy was elected to the house in 2012. kennedy gave the democratic response to donald trump's state of the union last year. a new poll showing joe biden plummeting to third place behind elizabeth warning bernie sanders, the 2020 front runner dropping 13 points in just two month. where does the democratic power struggle go from here. here to debate it is kelly hyman and republicans strategist chris hong. thank you for joining us. let's bring up that poll right away, the monmouth poll of democratic candidates and you can see bernie sanders now up 6 points from june, 20%, elizabeth for an up 5 points from june at 20% and joe biden down 13 points from june at 19%. kamala harris no change in cory
booker ringing up the bottom with 4% so what do you think about this? i will start with you. >> we have to think of the fact that there were only 298 people this poll was taken on. the margin of error is 5.7% and cnn did a poll last week where joe biden had 29% support and elizabeth warren had 15% and sanders had 14%. it is just one paul and we will see what comes up in the debate. >> your thoughts on biden's tremendous drop? >> democratic voters saw biden as a candidate who could defeat donald trump and they felt was strong but recent mishaps in regard to statements he said, mistaking vermont for new
hampshire and other things, he's not seen as a strong candidate and donald trump continues to exude strength, did a great job at the g7 summit bringing countries together, continuing to make and prepare for a deal. both of those seen on a continuous basis biden is not just the guy. >> another thought is the two democrats in the lead, the socialist candidates. is that a problem for democrats? >> i don't see that as a problem. i said before this is just one paul and going back to what he's saying about donald trump there was a fox poll that asked people in 40, 59% of people said they felt trump was dividing this country so when you look at candidates on the democratic side, whether it is joe biden, others before nor sanders when
put against trump the polls said all three candidates will beat trump in a head to head match. >> do americans want a socialist candidate? >> absolutely not, they want a candidate that looks out for their individual pockets but at the end of they people care about what affect them directly and that is the economy doing well, people getting tax returns -- >> heading towards a recession. >> absolutely not. anything can happen. the economy is doing strong and donald trump is doing be on the best he can, those are rumors we talked about last week, at the end of the day we are looking at positive outcome, donald trump is stronger and stronger candidate as time goes on in the country does not want socialist as our leaders, doesn't make sense. >> let's look at the biden campaign's response to the poll, they say this paul is an outlier
that is contradicted by every measure of the national average like the real clear politics average as joe biden leading with 28.8%. along the lines of what you said. >> this is just one paul and if you look the margin of error is 5.7% which is very high and other polls show him leading. we will see what happens and what the voters decide on. >> we appreciate it. the time is 10 minutes until the top of the hour and mob it and mauled over pro trump hat. >> surrounding me, pushing me, i'm just trying to get through to keep somebody from taking my hat. >> the portland man who claims his would be date night turned into an all-out brawl and today is the day, love him or hate him, pumpkin spice lattes back at starbucks, starbucks has a
