5:16 am
contracting, despite u.s. forced posture in the region, iran is doing the opposite of what we want them to do. lauren: so what does europe do and how do we get them in our attempts to make sure iran doesn't breach the deal and doesn't create a we upon. >> i think we need to talk. that's the end goal here. i think even the most hawkish voices on iran don't want to invade the islamic republic. that's disaster. i think limited military strikes bring on a whole spiral and are not going to stop an iranian push for a nuclear weapon. lauren: how do we talk? iran says they won't talk with the u.s. while we have sanctions on them. who can act as an intermediary. >> there's a lot. the qatari's in town right now. other european nations the germans potentially, we saw the japanese offering to take that role in the past. lauren: how close do you think
5:17 am
iran is to a w weapons grade nur enrichment. how fast can they go from the 4.5% to 90% enrichment which is considered w weapons grade. >> they're more than a year away. it's pretty substantial steps. what they've done is limited reversible steps. they're trying to make a point and trying to les lessen the sanctions, to change the terms of the debate. lauren: if we have a year, gil? gil, what do we do? could we get ourselves into an unintended military conflict with loose lips or misreading one another's actions. >> i think we've got more than a year, probably. that's kind of the worst case scenario. but i think we need to be willing to accept reality and fully climb down here, which as people pointed out we've done
5:18 am
that in north korea. we've accepted reality in north korea. we've got to be i think pretty realistic and sensible in terms of what we're willing to accept and what we're willing to go to war for and we're nowhere near that, we should be nowhere near point yet. i think the president's been pretty clear on that. lauren: gil, thank you very much. cheryl: let's take a look at u.s. futures. we're seeing a continuation of the selling that we had yesterday. investors around the world are watching the fed and the aggressive rate cut that wall street was looking for may not be happening. futures for the dow are down 123, s&p down 14, nasdaq down a 50 and three quarters. attorney general barr says president trump has the authority to add the citizenship question. is he right? how is the ag backing former special counsel robert mueller? and stranger things is a summer

5:22 am
we've been considering all the options and i've been in constant discussions with the president ever since the supreme court decision came down and i think over the next day or two you'll see what approach we're taking. i think it does provide a pathway for getting the question on the census. cheryl: trump administration said it will find a way to get the question of citizenship back onto the census but the road may not be easy for attorney general bill barr. the full house expected to vote on criminal contempt citations
5:23 am
against him and wilbur ross, quote, soon, according to fox news. herhere to break it down for us, criminal defense attorney david bruno. good morning. the president said, we can do a membememorandum, we can maybe dn executive order. they're still fighting to get the question onto the census. ills there a path for that? >> the roberts court said the reasons they're giving is a pretext t and we need to do more investigation about the motives. i think personally the memorandum or the executive order is not a good path right now. because look at what happened to the travel ban. the lower courts just came out and stayed it. and i think that's probably what we're going to see. i can't see this being an actual solution to the problem because they need to print these questionnaires quickly. cheryl: also, there's this thing about the doj. they changed the entire legal team that is dealing with the citizenship question.
5:24 am
isn't that really rare to have a complete legal team replaced at this moment? >> i think the rare part of the story is the type of lawyers that are coming in. because initially they had a specific unit dealt with these issues. is it rare? i mean, it appears that they're going to have to take a new direction here. cheryl: maybe that's the plan. i don't know. to get new guys in there. >> we don't know why exactly. is it because they refused to do it or is it because it's a tactic. we don't know the answer. cheryl: there could be in-fighting at the doj. this contempt vote, fox news reports it's going to be soon, this is a full house vote against -- could be criminal contempt against barr and ross. what do you make of that and how does the doj handle that if it's handed down. that's their boss they have to turn around and deal with. >> we saw it before in eric holder. in 2012 the house voted to hold him criminally in contempt too.
5:25 am
the congress only as oversight. they can't hold anybody in criminal contempt. it goes to the department of justice. cheryl: which bill barr runs. >> exactly. holder case, they said they reviewed it and we're not hold him in contempt. cheryl: this whole house vote -- >> it's going to happen, the department of justice will say thanks, but no thanks. cheryl: thank you, david bruno. >> one last thing, my sister is scheduled for a c-section this morning for twins and i want to send my sister kristie the best. we love you. cheryl: thank you again to you. good luck to your family. lauren: coming up, the war of words heating up between house speaker nancy pelosi and freshman democrat alexandria ocasio-cortez. it could backfire for the democrats in 2020. that's a question we're going to ask. team usa getting a heroes welcome home, but star megan rapinoe giving president trump

5:29 am
cheryl: let's get you caught up on global market action. investors continue to show their concern they're not going to get that aegress i've rate cut from the fed at the end of the month. dow is down 127, s&p down 14, nasdaq down 51. in europe, it is the same story, this is a global concern as you can see, all the european indices are in the red. in asia, which really these markets took a hit yesterday, still selling throughout the region except for the nikkei in japan which gained a slight fraction of a percent. lauren: elizabeth warren pulling ahead of bernie sanders and kamala harris on the fund raising front.
5:30 am
second quarter warren raised just over $19 million. that doesn't put her in the lead. former vice president joe biden did edge her out. he's got $21.5 million. but in first place is mayor pete buttigieg, $24.8 million. we asked, do fund raising dollars equal votes? let's bring in committee to defend the president, as in president trump, chairman ted harvey. ted, do any of those numbers we just showed surprise you? >> yes, they surprise me. you know, i come from highlands ranch colorado. our community is about the same size as south bend, indiana. we aren't even a town. we are a homeowners association. i think it's scary that the chairman of my hoa could run for president of the united states and out-raise three u.s. senators and the former vice president of the united states. that tells you how weak the democrat bench is, that mayor pete is leading fund raising in this effort and for joe biden who was in the senate for 38 years and the vice president of
5:31 am
the united states under obama has the greatest ro rolodex in e democrat party is out-raised by the mayor of south bend. that would be embarrassing to me. i think i would quit if i were him. lauren: these are just the second quarter numbers, we do want to point that out. mayor pete in the second quarter is on top. is wall street warming up to the fact that maybe if president he would be more moderate? are they also warming up to elizabeth warren? >> well, first off, i think it's important to point out that president trump in 24 hours raised exactly what mayor pete raised in the entire quarter. i think that wall street is actually more inclined to be following what the incumbent president of the united states is doing for our economy than what the democrat party is offering. i think what you're seeing is a bunch of pretty radical leftists that are running in the democrat party and they're splitting up the money and they're splitting up the votes.
5:32 am
lauren: president trump has certainly treated wall street well with stocks near record highs. let's move on to another topic. nancy pelosi, house speaker, gave an interview to the new york times. she went after some of the freshmen democrats including alexandria ocasio-cortez for not supporting a border bill. this became a thing on twitter and a aoc wrote this. i find it strange when members act through social -- act as though social media is not important. they set millions of dollars on fire to run television ads so people can see their message, going on to say, look, i do it for free on twitter. is this a generational and a political divide and does this hurt democrats in 2020? >> well, i think it definitely hurts democrats in 2020. that's why nancy pelosi is doing everything she can to try to show the american people that the democrats do support a secure border. but what the democrat party is now, they are now the party of open borders. they have a freshman legislator
5:33 am
that is leading the speaker of the house around by the nose and she's leading the democrat party around by the nose. the democrat party has now become an open borders, anti-law enforcement party and i think that's scary for america but if i were nancy pelosi, i would be worried about how that's going to impact their elections in 2020. the house -- democrats don't have many seats available to lose in the 2020 elections and she wants to be speaker moving forward. lauren: those older, experienced democrats basically unable to rein in the young voices from the radical left. ted harvey, thank you very much. >> thank you. god bless. have a great day. cheryl: chairman jay powell set to appear at a conference on the fed's stress test in boston today ahead of congressional testimony tomorrow and thursday plus fomc meeting the end of the month. let's talk about what we're going to hear from today, the speech from jay powell, everyone
5:34 am
will be looking for hints on what he'll say about potential rate cuts. what do you want to hear from him? >> well, we want to hear, as you said earlier, chick-fil-a is giving away sandwiches, we want him to confirm that he's going to be giving us at least a quarter point rate cut at this meeting coming forward. that's really what we're looking for at this point in time. cheryl: we are going to be getting a key read on inflation on thursday. that could certainly change and the meeting's not until the 30th and 31st. also, there's a lot of speculation that if they decide to cut rates, that signals weakness in the economy. isn't that something that you have to look at? >> well, certainly of. we've gowe've gotweakness comin. atlanta fed coming in the second quarter gdp at 1.3, down significantly from the first quarter. you've got average payrolls from last year down significantly. you take a five-month average of the last five months, we're down 35% from 2019.
5:35 am
we certainly have a slowing economy and we're looking for help from the fed at this point in time to a little bit reduce the inverted yield curve, to give us confidence in what we already see. i think the market's already pricing in the slowdown in the economy so far. we just want to make sure it doesn't slow to a stall speed at this point. cheryl: an inverted yield curve means there's concerns about a recession coming. we certainly hope not. we had a heck of a bull market over the last decade. want to ask about the testimony on capitol hill tomorrow. it's going to get political. the president has been so hard on jay powell, saying his rate cut policies have been bad for the country, the dow would have been 10,000 points higher if he hadn't made the moves he made. do you expect this to get a little heated for jay powell tomorrow and thursday. >> no question, this is going to get political. i think this may be a gift in july for powell at this point in time. you've got the march he get pricing in -- market pricing in the quarter point reduction. he doesn't want to get political
5:36 am
in the next year's election. he can give a gift to trump early and so that we can reduce the pressure on himself from the fed standpoint, give a gift to the market, give a gift to trump at this point in time to try to stay away from the political as expects. but of course tomorrow is political theater 101. cheryl: well, it will be good television nonetheless. investors will be watching. david, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> thank you. thank you very much. lauren: richard branson's space unit is ready to take off. cheryl: tracee carrasco has all the details. tracee: the virgin ga lactic is going public, it would be the first listed firm with plans to put tourists into space. according to the wall street journal, they are planning to invest about $800 million in virgin ga lactic for a 49% stake. they expect the deal to provide enough capital to fund the business until the space ship

5:39 am
>> i doubt it. >> reporter: she is back in the u.s. with her team, doubling down on her anti-trump stance while saying a team visit to the capitol to see chuck schumer and nancy pelosi is what the victors want. >> we said publicly, i've said, i think most of the team -- not everybody -- i think everybody is with me. we don't want to go to the white house. thank you chuck schumer for inviting us out. we are happy to accept your invitation. >> reporter: president trump congratulating the women on their win, putting aside at least for the moment the firestorm surrounding rapinoe's vow never to visit the white house, while adding this. >> will you invite the women's team to the white house t soccer team? >> we haven't thought about it. we will look at that. >> reporter: going to be interesting to hear what if anything the players say about their potential dc travel plans tomorrow when the team parades up the canyon in downtown manhattan under a steady stream of ticker tape or as we call it

5:44 am
of there because it was defunded by the new tax law and that's bringing a court challenge because the lawsuit is saying well, wait a minute, if this isn't there, then is the law constitutional? i think this argument's going to go all the way to the supreme court. i think the supreme court is going to argue on behalf of -- decide on the part of severability, meaning certain take chutestatutescan remain ano be removed. i don't think they're going to strike down obamacare despite the contradiction. roberts ruled on behalf of the constitutionality of obamacare because of the ability to have the individual mandate. i love that the individual mandate is gone. that was forcing my patients to buy a product that didn't always work for them, that had high deductibles, that had narrow networks. i want them to have more choices. so the idea that that clause is
5:45 am
gone makes the law more pallet aable tpalletable to me. lauren: as this goes back and forth between the attorneys and the courts on both sides, what happens to patients as they say, hey, whoever is in charge of the white house for the next four years, where does our healthcare coverage stand? >> that's a great point. i think that patients are at sea right now. you know why? the trump administration has come up with some really good ideas to take the place of being forced to buy this product that's extremely expensive. they have come up with more choices, more ideas. church groups, you might not have to cover contraception, right. guess what, that's being held up in the courts. medicaid expansion, extremely expensive. some states are trying to put in work requirements which i think is a terrific idea. why shouldn't we have methods to get people back to work, right? that's being held up in the courts. cheryl: we were talk about this in the commercial break. maybe states are going to step in, depending how this plays
