sirena chuck schumer after the minority leader walked back his offer on funding. $25 billion for the border wall. it's going to foist another government shutdown in early february. a couple weeks away. it putatively incumbent good morning gop strategist nick ryan. good morning, nick. where do we stand on immigration right now? >> first of all, chuck schumer's offer was hardly a serious one. $10 million with what was needed to build the wall. i figure that's probably closer to reality of 2,136,000,000,000 parameters for the debate has been laid out. full funding for a southern wall and border security into chain migration, into the visa lottery system and some legal status for the daca dreamers come 690,000 of them and they think a lot of trunk space would be putting a path to citizenship as well. the problem the democrats have
right now are the numbers to about 60% of the american people saying we don't want to see government shutdown, but even more troubling are the congressional generic ballot. democrats if he can point them out. this week according to cnn only up five points. looking at the numbers and realizing they are caught between the majority of the american people and their very hard left owners and base over the immigration debate and they want a solution to daca, but they're not sure they want all the other things the hard left ones. i don't see them beating him and a stronger negotiating position a few weeks from now. >> talk about the country. 60% -- more than 60% of americans say the border security we have right now is inadequate.
54% support a physical as well as electronic terrier. they want more security in cap on the number of legal immigrants coming into this country different than illegal immigrants. the majority of america want this. do we expect cooler heads to prevail for them to find a middle ground where they can negotiate. >> that is bitterly to the $20 billion question. the greatness and the fact terror, which by the way in 2006, prominent democrats like hillary clinton and joe biden in barack obama and chuck schumer all voted for the wall and it cut down illegal crossings by 90%. physical barriers work. in the whole scheme of things, lauren, the government spends a
quarter trillion of the year to complete southern security to have southern borders, but let's not forget all the drugs crossing the southern border as well. the american people when a commonsense solution to what has been laid out by donald trump is a commonsense solution. and then we can deal with the 690,000 daca dreamers. cheryl: lawmakers start from scratch here? >> you know what, what has to be understood as parameters laid out that we don't need to start from scratch. authority been laid out. democrats have to understand if they have any chance in the midterms, they have to understand the majority of the american people want this. donald trump as they got the debate and republicans need to stand firm and a look at exactly what they needed help themselves and the midterms for 2018.

be nominated in the cinematography category for the movie mad down. here to talk about this in the oscar buzz, good morning. >> good morning. cheryl: we talked about wal-mart and all these female directors in advertisements. is there a push to recognize my women from the academy? >> i think there is. there has to be. it's a time for things to change and a half. women have been in the business a long time but unrecognized. everything that's going on in the industry from the need to movement to what has happened with harvey weinstein and essentially just getting a chance for women to get to work out there has changed what we are seeing in the face of oscar. cheryl: i can accredit our way, rachel moore, on the bus on social media yesterday that it took been 90 years to finally nominated female cinematographer that category. let's talk about some of the other news that came out of this. shape of water really had an
incredible amount of nominations. i believe 13. >> shape of water when i saw the film genre films are not the films that generally can't oscar nominations. for a film like shape of water and get out, which are both genre films to be nominated for best picture is a huge change. it says a lot about how the film is actually touched audiences in touched members of the academy. it's an adult fantasy that actually works. cheryl: some high-profile snaps with the post. meryl streep did the denomination for best actress but tom hanks and steven spielberg were not nominated at all. these are usually oscar favorite. >> i have to say i'm surprised because i thought the post was one of the best films of the year. because he's been nominated so many times, perhaps a number of other things and there's only
five directors who can be nominated if they expand the category like we did the best picture, maybe that will change. i have to say he did have stiff competition. i am surprised he didn't get nominated. tom hanks i think it's a great performance. is it oscar worthy? in the face of some of the other people who've been nominated, maybe not. cheryl: james franco is on the list of snobs, but that could be related to sexual harassment allegations. >> i think it absolutely was. there isn't any other reason for it not to be. train to a really other interesting back story that i find fascinating. former president ronald reagan, his former press secretary once the academy to post ronald reagan and honorary oscar for his work in the industry. there has been some push back because he was a president because he was republican president. i don't know.
did he think the academy would be willing to do this for ronald reagan? >> you know, what is happening is the of the academy has changed. i don't know if the people who are currently involved with voting would necessarily appreciate his body of work, especially because a lot of people remember him as a republican president than they do is a beloved film star, which is what he was. it is sort of how clint eastwood or different actors who get known for something other than the work that they do. it is a longshot at this point. cheryl: we will have to see if they come around. your general sense of the actors. any surprise in any of the categories? >> i think the biggest surprise could be in the best picture category. they could be -- it looks like shape of water, but i have to say can outcome the three billboards, they have a strong
shot. train to francis dorman also getting nominated for that. thank you very much for getting up early. we shall see. lauren: i love him and his voice. i just want to listen. coming up, investors are bracing for more bad news for general electric. how low can this talk go? for these two companies commit jpmorgan chase and disney joining the tax cut for the bonus bandwagon. overall market activity for the s&p 500 and nasdaq at the all-time highs yesterday. update quarter of 1% across the board this morning. you are watching "fbn:am." at fidelity, trades are now just $4.95. we cut the price of trades to give investors even more value.

raising brand-new questions about the russia pollution probe's credibility. "fbn:am" continues right now. lauren: 530 on the dot on wednesday the 24th of january. good morning. lauren simonetti. cheryl: and cheryl casone. about yesterday. lauren: more records. cheryl: nothing stops them. we would get to in a few moments. major new developments in the russian investigation. officials say jeff sessions spent several hours being grilled by the special counsel office last week or this is the first time investigators are learned to have interviewed a cabinet member. president trump was asked yesterday if he's worried about what sessions may have said. [inaudible conversations]
>> no, i'm not at all, kristen. no come i didn't. but i'm not at all concerned. cheryl: for more on what this means, we turn to prosecutor david bruno. good morning. pretty big deal here. how helpful can sessions be to mueller and also, does this set up a potential interview of president trump, which lawyers were told currently negotiating over. >> will come to should be no surprise. he's testified twice before congress about the ambassador case of acne and the other photo above that was taken where he sat the table. but, should this mean anything? the thing that jumps out at me as the investigation is moving into the inner circle and i would write others close to the president to be next. cheryl: this means the investigation is wrapping up, not slowing down. we were under the impression a few weeks ago that mueller was
wrapping things out. what change do you think? >> well, critical witnesses still have to be questioned. think about don junior and kushner and others close to the president. being the first cabinet member to be interviewed as a start, but certainly not the end. cheryl: let's talk about what's going on with fbi director james call me. there talk from trey gowdy, republican trey gowdy that they want james comey to come back. there's questions about whether he was truthful in his testimony and it's over these memos. what do you make of that? >> the report dark he was interviewed by the special counsel unit last year and he testified in june about these leaked memos and i would've expected the specific testimony to the special counsel to be prior to that. the testimony was probably vetted by molar, someone who
call me in molar worked with in the past and certainly they should not be any news that he gave testimony in respect to this investigation. cheryl: trey gowdy is making an interesting charge here, basically saying he decided not to pursue any kind of charges against hillary clinton over her e-mail server after he interviewed her. now it looks like according to trey gowdy that he made the decision before he ever spoke to her. there might be evidence to back that up. >> good point, cheryl. what needs to be discussed at these back before congress is this memo that was started prior to the hillary clinton interview and was amended. fbi agent strzok had something to do it back, which was taking away the language of recklessness required for the federal of handling classified misinformation and changing it to carelessness. he has not been questioned about that. that would be a point of
questioning. cheryl: i'm sorry, but why the congress? let's talk about this real quick. peter strzok and lisa paige, these two officials, high-level officials in the clinton investigation and in the trunk dossier until they were pulled off. now we are finding out that peter strzok text of a colleague and said you and i both know the answer nothing. if i thought it was likely be there in a question. i hesitate because made that says there's no big spare. he's talking about the russia investigation into president trump. he ended up on the investigation that he was art expressing doubt before hand. what you make of that? >> the timing of the text message is critical. it is may 19th, 2 days after special counsel molar was appointed. at that time covering the investigation had been rolling for almost a year.
strzok was involved in it. he knew about the investigation. that's why it's important. cheryl: david bruno, appreciate your story. lauren: fascinating. jpmorgan will hire thousands of workers, boost wages, all thanks to the new tax bill. cheryl: tracee carrasco has that another headlines. >> thanks to the sweeping changes at the u.s. tax code also improved economic reform and scummy jpmorgan will hire 4000 new employees, open 400 new branches in up to 20 new market and for about 20,000 -- 22,000 new employees will be raising the hourly wage to 15 to $18. that is a big bump from $12.1650. a good increase fare. great news for the jpmorgan employees. cheryl: that's good. share the wealth.
disney is jumping on the bonus program. >> offered a one time bonus to 125,000 employees. this is hourly salary employees as well. full-time, part-time and as long as you work and play by january 1st of this year you can be eligible for the bonus. they are also doing a $15 million education funding programs so that will help 88,000 hourly employees can help them pay for tuition costs. lauren: i remember the first company saying we are going to pay workers more because of the tax cut. so many skeptics were saying that good. look at the number of companies giving back because of what they of what they're getting for tax reform. talk about budweiser. no longer the king of. >> no longer the top three best-selling beers in the u.s. adviser replaced by miller light in third place. second place is going to be cooler aside and don papas bud
lite. budweiser gave up the top spot to bud lite in 2001. all of this because people are drinking last. they are switching over to craft beer. just less in general. cheryl: that global travelers in the top 10. lauren: and beer. i go to the liquor store and look at the section. it's so colorful and different. cheryl: tracee thank you. lauren: another big day for earnings per general electric due out this morning. can investors expect signs of a turnaround for more bad news for investors after ge last week announced the surprise choice from its legacy insurance business. shares actually rallied over 4% yesterday. biggest one-day gain in over two years through to grab it, joining us now. good to see you, cooper.
you know, we saw the shares pop yesterday, but if you look at the one-year chart of this company, clearly the dog of the doubt. investors stay in? >> general electric is a great example of a company for a long time could do nothing wrong. clearly things are changing. exposure to fossil fuels, exposure to some legal liability related to high yield securities and some of their pension obligations be met do raise real questions. this goes through transparency. the bigger picture i think i would put us what does this mean to the broader market and earnings seasons. one of the things we are seeing is what has been working in the past may not be working in the next cycle. still lots of reasons to be optimistic about where the market is heading but not a time to be complacent in understanding the particulars of what goes on company by company is very important in ge has
plenty of challenges and is likely to be responded here in the market. lauren: a lot of talk about the complacency but one more quick question in ge. do expect them to layout a different turnaround plan, said the company will be broken up? any word on the tax cut? >> tax cuts will be beneficial because so much is global, less of an impact. we will have to wait and see. lauren: you have world leaders, business leaders and top posts, switzerland. stock markets globally are on fire, but there is anxiety out there and it's caused from this complacency. are we ignoring geopolitical tensions? are we ignoring politics? what's going on? >> we are hearing this from claims domestically and internationally as well. the truth is the economies are going better on a global basis.
a lot of raising to say fundamentals are improving. the challenges are brown valuation and that underlines the opportunity here for stockpicking. this is a time when not every company will be treated the same way in understanding a particular business models, how they will be able to compete across the market becomes particularly important. lauren: a lot of talk about the u.s. dollar quickly. treasury secretary in the nation -- mnuchin chair and a weak dollar. future a weak u.s. dollar. >> right now that is clearly positive for american exports. you do have a weird phenomenon. that's where it goes back to the broader theme is still a lot of reason to be positive about the market, but the situation is changing which means understanding what will happen going forward as it relates to
companies and their approach is what will drive earnings. the impact will be dependent on the business model and the important time for opportunities but also to find the right company. lauren: in the backdrop, cooper, the s&p 500. we're talking about the longest bull market in history. >> we've got some breaking news. qualcomm with a $122 billion antitrust fund by an e.u. commission overpayment me to apple for exclusively using its smartphones and other products. qualcomm brought in $22 billion in revenue for fiscal 2017. a decade for qualcomm whether or not a fight, we don't know. certainly stop to watch. lauren: will follow that for you. if you are in tender, don't
swipe until you share this latest story about security risks from hackers. a dangerous eruption of the philippines must act the volcano is doing while the four miles. we will be right back. so, she turned to legalzoom. they helped me out. she means we helped with her llc, trademark, and a lot of other legal stuff that's a part of running a business. so laura can get back to the dogs. would you sit still? this is laura's mobile dog grooming palace and this is where life meets legal.
