5:06 am
the ones that make the decisions. sources say the administration is going forward with additional tariffs on december 15th from china. the caveat, though, if a phase one deal gets on paper before december 15th or a significant progress is made, then he could decide to hold off on those tariffs. two sources are telling me there's an internal debate in the trade deal. at least one person in the room wants the president to sign a trade deal with china by the next election even if protecting intellectual property gets pushed off into phase two. others are saying the president needs to stand firm and get enforceable trade deal on paper. the important point here is that on the china talks both sides are still talking. back to you. cheryl: thank you. house speaker nancy pelosi weighing in now on an internet content dispute that's actually part of the usmca deal. he pelosi wants p legal protections for online content removed from the agreement. that would be a major defeat for big technology companies, think google, facebook, twitter and

the impeachment inquiry. that's what some democrats implied at yesterday's hearing even though the report exonerated the president of any wrong-doing during the 2016 election. joining me you now is joe marino, a former federal prosecutor. it seems to me, throw everything you can at the wall, see what sticks. bringing in the mueller report, is that an a error by the democrats? what does that do? >> i think so. look, the democrats are in a tough position here. because on the one hand, they don't want to admit that a two and-a-half year russia probe essentially came to nothing. on the other hand, they don't want to remind people that the president was in fact exonerated of two and-a-half years of being argued there was russia collusion, just to find out there wasn't. i think what they're doing is they're going to pick and choose and try to piggy back this a attempted obstruction of justice concept from the russia probe onto the ukrainian probe now and
5:15 am
say, look, maybe one case is not that strong, maybe the other case is not that strong, we lump them together and possibly it looks like a more substantial case. ashley: sounds a bit desperate to me. i don't know how much you got to see of yesterday's action, so-to-speak. we had three professors hand picked by democrats who said of course the president should be impeached and the republican lawyer made a strong case on the other side. this is just a partisan effort anit appears to be that way andi feel like the public is seeing it for what it is. what say you. >> first i've thought it was a missed opportunity as i watched the entire hearing. now having had the night to think about it, i think it was more of a misstep. the democrats had another opportunity to at least provide some level of fairness, some level of objec objectiveity. they got hand picked, highly
5:16 am
partisan attorneys to speak in lock step on democrat talking points, to say there's nothing to see here, all the evidence is there, it's a lock solid case, no question about it and it almost got worse as the day went on. we heard things like this is worse than watergate, goes to the crux of our democracy. when i hear that exaggeration, that makes me think, look, my case is not strong and the more i have to talk it up, it's an acknowledgement they my case is not strong. ashley: it feels like an empty exercise. we know the senate -- nothing is guaranteed if in life but we're pretty certain the senate is not going to go you along with it. it adds to what the heck are we doing here, seems like a useless exercise. >> there are opportunities here if the democrats wanted to act in good faith to say, look, let's have a real conversation here. let's have fair rules. let's let the republicans call who they want and see what they want. they're not doing that. this is a pure power play. i get it.
5:17 am
elections have consequences. the democrats have the power and a they're using it. but they're not bringing anyone along for the ride. they're going to get exactly what we were warned by many people what you don't want, which is a one sided, completely partisan impeachment effort which will go nowhere in the senate. ashley: how does this play out. >> reporter: even if they go ahead on the house side, we know it's not going anywhere in the t senate. >> the feedback i get from people all over the place is this is a waste of time. that the democrats had years of telling us there was collusion, there was obstruction, it's right around the corner, this administration, the walls are closing in. how many times we heard that, just to find out there was nothing there. their credibility is shot and i think people are seeing it for what it is, a partisan waste of time. ashley: a i thinoftime. ashley: i think you're right. cheryl: day two of ask's elon s

fiedefamation case wrapped up ad we have details. >> reporter: the basic defense is it is much ado bought nothing, at the very least, much ado about nothing but a tweet. back in july of 2018, the tesla ceo offered to send a mini submarine his company designed to help in the search for a young soccer team and their coach stuck in a flooded cave system in thailand. as rescue driver and the plaintiff in this case was leading an effort to bring the boys out of the cave and in an interview called musk's submarine offer a pr stunt and said this. >> what are your thoughts on elon musk's idea? >> stick his submarine where it hurts. >> reporter: musk responded on twitter, calling him a pedo guy, hence the defamation suit.
5:19 am
musk said it was an off-the-cuff response. he said he was rude and insulting so i insulted him back. it was regrettable. he said of the exchange of insults, quote, i assume he literally didn't mean to sodomize him with a submarine. i literally didn't mean he was a pedophile. he said he was defending his work, saying of the reaction, it denigrating the work of my team, there were a lot of people who worked day and night to be helpful. the trial could end by the end of this week. ashley: thank you very much. interesting stuff. cheryl: interesting sound bite. let's take a look at futures. we've got green arrows this morning. we still have somewhat of a level of optimism about u.s.-china trade talks and we're seeing some of that happening, asian markets, we're seeing it on the futures, dow up 63, s&p up 6 and-a-half, nasdaq up 21.

5:32 am
christmas tree set to be lit by president trump and the first lady tonight. cheryl: staying in washington, with camp camp dropping out of the democratic -- kamala harris dropping out of the democratic primary, the race is to get her donors. cory booker, amy clone r char ks expected to reap the benefits. who is going to benefit the most from wall street democratic donations. it's interesting, because we've had a lot of off the record comments circulating, saying the big donors are getting phone calls, biden, buttigieg, because they're trying to be quoted by the wall street donor who liked kamala harris' leftist views. where do you think it goes? >> i think joe biden is a great
5:33 am
candidate for some of those donors. kamala harris, when she announced, really got a lot of excitement from not just people on wall street, but also in california as well, california is a huge donor base for the democratic party. the day she dropped out, she had a wall street fundraiser just hours ahead of time. so i think joe biden's an excellent candidate. pete buttigieg has a large amount of billionaires proportionally as part of his donor base. i think those two you will definitely see as they're leading in the polls as some of the top candidates. cheryl: we're seeing reports that pete buttigieg sent an e-mail to wall street democrats saying i've got scheduled events in town. they really pounced on this. he's got events coming up and also joe biden as well. but it looks like joe biden seems to be from what we're hearing the more viable centrist candidate from a wall street perspective. someone like an elizabeth warren or bernie sanders isn't going to get that wall street money. >> i think that's exactly
5:34 am
right. buttigieg is a little all over the place in terms of policy. when he first announced he was a young progressive, now he's shifting back to the middle. joe biden is a politician who has long-standing ties with the financial community. that was a liability for him in 2008. it's a little bit of a liability for him now. this is a guy that a lot of these funders have known for decades. he's predictable. most of his policy plans are already out. he he's not trying to tack left. he's probably going to tack further to the center if he's the eventual democratic nominee. he's definitely a safe choice. cheryl: according to the center for responsive politics, pete buttigieg is leading rivals when it comes to security investment industry contributions, about $1 million by the end of september. that's the latest numbers. that may change with kamala harris dropping out. elizabeth warren went on to bloomberg, the television network, and took a real hit at michael bloomberg, saying she
5:35 am
doesn't think elections should be bought. do you think that that appearance is going to resonate? >> i mean, i'm not sure what bloomberg tv's actual awe audiee is. i think most people who watch bloomberg are probably in the financial industry, they probably already have an industry of elizabeth warren one way or another. but this is part of a general strategy beyond just trying to reach people who watch bloomberg. if you recall a month or two ago, senator warren took out an ad on cnbc attacking their own contributors, attacking billionaires on that. i think this is a general strategy to really bring the fight to the billionaires' doorstep. cheryl: elizabeth warren seems to scare a lot of folks on wall street because of her progressive plans and the way she plans to pay for those plans. thank you very much for being here. >> thanks for having me. ashley: now on to this issue that's getting a lot of play. peloton responding to backlash it received for a recent advertisement. the company says while it is

disappointed at what it calls the misinterpretation of the commercial, it also received an outpouring of support from those that understand what we are trying to communicate, that's from peloton many this week, we asked you who you be offended if your significant other gifted you exercise equipment? here's the response. 44% of you said yes. 56% said no. so more said no than yes. by the way, a viewer rose wilson said no, lol, i told my significant other to be like that guy and i want a peloton. another viewer said a real girl would be like, what. cheryl: okay. ashley: how about this. this has been getting a lot of play. a brooklyn comic had a hilarious response to the ad and it's going viral this morning. >> a peloton? my husband got me a peloton for christmas. nothing weird about that. thank you. you get me. i'm a little nervous. my husband got me a [bleep]
