6:02 am
and questioned his ability to win a nationwide race before beginning a statewide run. >> we can't have a president with that temperament dishonoring the presidency of the united states. >> has made argument that he will drain the swamp and yet he changed washington, broke the promise and has done everything he can to the wealthy and the well connected. >> what we need is a trade policy that stands up to workers, stand up for farmers, and by the way, the word climate change to the best of my knowledge is not discussed in this new nafta agreement at all which is outrage, so, no, i will not be voting for this refusement. >> i refuse to accept the notion as some on stage do that we can never, never get to a place that we have cooperation again, if that's the case we are dead as a
6:03 am
country, we need to be able to reach consensus and if anybody has any reason to be angry with the republicans an not want to cooperate the way they attacked me, my son and my family. >> the mayor recently had a fundraiser that was held in a wine cave full of crystals and served 900 a dollar wine, think about who comes to that, he has promised that every fundraiser he would be open door but this one was closed door. >> senator your net worth is one hundred times mine, supposed you went home and feeling the holiday spirit, i know it isn't likely but stay with me, decided to go to and give the max by law. >> i would ask for forgiveness,i know sometimes i get really worked up. [laughter]
6:04 am
>> and sometimes i get a little hot. i don't really mean to. >> i'd asked for forgiveness any time any of you get mad at. i can be blunt but i think it's important to pick the right candidate here. >> last two sound bites from warren and klobuchar were from moderate -- giving candidates a choice to give a gift or ask forgiveness, only two women died today ask for forgiveness and tall men decided to give gift. maria: that was interesting that it was the two women that wanted to ask for forgiveness, hillary, thank you, hillary vaughn in los angeles with all the highlights there. lee, let's get your reaction for, i know you did dials as well, what did you see. >> i did, mayor pete was a standout in the exchange between warren and mayor pete that was one of the highlights to have night, he won the night in that moment, i think biden had a lot to prove last night, he did not
6:05 am
live up to what he needed to do, he had interesting moments where he slammed the economy and said middle-class people are struggling, they are suffering and democrats agreed with them and independents were no, it's not that way, he proved that he wasn't in touch with them and i don't think that's going to help them and elizabeth warren, i think she didn't have a great night and she needed to because she's been dropping in the polls. dagen: joe biden was talking about an economy that doesn't exist with most americans, wages going up for the working class, for people who are in factories, production workers, going up faster than the overall average, growing up faster and i say it almost every day, the income
6:06 am
inequality in this country is shrinking, the whole situation is improving, you have consumer confidence is still at -- at high, record-stock market and in terms of wages, if you want a job, there are about a million and a quarter more job openings than they are unemployed in this country, it is astonishing what has happened in the economy in terms of financial stability and employment and he is talking about an america that most people can't see and it's fiction. maria: the bottom earners are seeing wages more than bosses. >> the interesting point if you take the wage earners and bottom 25% they are growing more than top earners, the lowest-paid people are getting the big boost in wage almost in history.
6:07 am
maria: libbed say did research a couple of months ago, i brought it to you guys a couple of months when they looked at the bottom and compared to the top, the bottom is much more than that. >> 4.5%. maria: that's also helping those invested in the stock market, you have lots of corners. dagen: story that jon hilsenrath that focused on wisconsin, a state where hillary clinton didn't even win a third of the white-working class vote and it was, wisconsin, pennsylvania, michigan that led president trump with the electoral college. they were getting jobs before the layoff happened, they had a severance check and job waiting where they were making more money. maria: we will see a lot of turnover, that's indicater of strong economy, they know that
6:08 am
they'll another one. maria: did it bother that it was just the woman, why do we constantly apologize? [laughter] >> a side note, it's not wine cave, it's wine cave, in case she didn't know that. >> i love the response, lea and i were talking before the show started, pete buttigieg said, this this is the problem with issuing purity test, you not past. >> he had a great exchange with her there. maria: he did, being so much richer than he is. >> andrew yang talked about going onto media impeachment, the more we act that donald trump is the cause of our problems, he's absolutely right. >> stop being obsessed with
6:09 am
impeachment. dagen: andrew yang had the smallest amount of talking time and he made the most of it. utilizing the time that he did have, he punched through when others did not. maria: what about the impeachment delay now, house speaker nancy pelosi she was rushing this through, rushing this through and signaling that she will postpone sending the actual articles of impeachment for the senate and pelosi is waiting for clarity, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell slammed this move, watch. >> suggested that house democrats may be too afraid, too afraid to transmit their shoty prosecution and second-guessing whether they want to go to trial, they said impeachment was so urgent that it could not even wait for due process but they are now content to sit on their hand. maria: you know, part of this is the fact that we've already heard from senator lindsey graham and senator ted cruz who
6:10 am
said we want to get this through as fast as possible, that perhaps once it gets to the senate, dagen, it might be dead on arrival because they have not seen a crime. dagen: nancy pelosi is trying to control what what's the senate does, it is u.s. constitution that grants the senate the power to adjudicate impeachment, not pelosi and not the house, this is a political move and proof that impeachment for the democrats was a political weapon against president trump and noa felman, testified for the democrats in front of the judiciary committee has written a piece, it is all over the internet, it's on bloomberg, that trump is not impeached until the house tells the senate because it's not about a vote, impeachment is a process, nancy pelosi you haven't impeached president trump until you take
6:11 am
action and send the articles. maria: just the fact that she wants to sit on this and delay it is an indication that she wants to keep him on his toes, she wants to get in donald trump's head as much as she can and keep him waiting and and guessing to see what her next move is. >> impeachment was the most important word this year but two-thirds of americans said this process is decrease trust in government, so this is not about the trust in the president, this is the government, i think that that's on her. dagen: support for it is still under water. more people in the real clear politics average say, no on impeachment than yes, so, again, not bipartisan and not acting on the will of all americans. >> and nancy pelosi loses all of her leverage the second she turns that over. maria: go away. >> goes away. dagen: she has no leverage,
6:12 am
she's not a senator, she doesn't have constitutional power. maria: she did bring usmca to the floor and passed, nafta 2.0 to the senate and president trump expected to approve the deal early next year, this is a victory in a big way for president trump. >> 100% and long and waiting and this start the process of freeing up businesses to actually do things and not going to be stuck in neutral any longer. maria: she made so many changes, it's just not true, america knows it's been the president who has been working on this through méxico and canada, trying to get support for it in the country for almost a year. dagen: he ran on this on the campaign trail, again, nancy pelosi has helped fulfill a campaign promise. eat that with your fruitcake over christmas. [laughter] maria: just getting started this morning, on deck this morning

maria: welcome back, wall street record run rolls on, take a look at the numbers, another day of gain and new record territory. a sign that investors are shrugging off impeachment and the success that we have seen in economic policy, joining us federated investors, chief investor steven austin. how important has impeachment been from your standpoint? >> not real important, markets look to the politics. maria: they think it's political, not going anywhere,
6:24 am
is that what they think? >> that's what i think but i think markets certainly think that this is not going, it's clearly not going anywhere, they looked at the evidence, the markets have already voted. i think even in the election the market will be voting on that by the spring and from the market's perspective, you know, a moderate democrat or the president is enough to keep these markets going higher. maria: who is a moderate democrat? >> i'm not sure but they proceed some of them more moderate than others. dagen: one thing that i wanted to point out having covered finance all of our careers, in the spending bill that congress just passed, president trump expected to sign, a part of it that encourages 401(k) plans to replicate something that what used to be in pensions, that's guarantied income payments, so this is a huge benefit for asset managers, brokers, 401(k) record
6:25 am
keepers, insurers and the like and huge benefit for the entire country and could be a sea change and would make it better for employers, maybe encouraging more people to save and invest, that could be boost. maria: that could be a boost. >> if you have 4 more years of these kinds of policies it puts this economy on a growth track that's going to be extremely exciting. maria: that's what would turn markets if you believe that economic policies were to be reversed. >> if you have the radical shift left like a warren or something like that gets nominated, as soon as that looks like that could happen the market could be for 10, 20% correction, more than a correction a permanent pullback. maria: wow.
6:26 am
>> i look at the earnings season and the multiples on the s&p are very high and pricing in something, is that the point -- are they pricing more growth? >> this always happens, coming out of recession, the market goes up first and people complain, earnings are flat, but the market is looking forward to we've got 10, 12% earnings growth next year probably higher than that because top line is above the markets, i think the markets are looking at that, we think the bull market doesn't end until valuations expand further. maria: what about the valuations look at russell index, it has not had a single record close this year, meanwhile we are talking about 100 plus records for some of the other averages, you know, the dow, the s&p, the nasdaq, why are small caps lagging? >> well, that's broadly why it's
6:27 am
lagging an partly because we've had the drum beat, the recession, the recession, i put out a piece about 3 weeks ago, what if we are early cycle and not light cycle which is exactly what we are, manufacturing slowdown we have been in globally is now bottoming in and we are starting to pull out of it, the service's sector is fine, the economy will accelerate next year and be good for so-called value sectors, industrials, there's still a lot of values in the stock, they're not expensive, we think it could be a good year and maybe a tougher year, not just have your money in the market. maria: you want to look at value then? >> technology has done well. >> a lot of value space in technology, the chip stock is an example. there's plenty of value in tech as well, yet we've had tech certainly should be pretty well
6:28 am

6:32 am
u.s.-china trade deal, sending futures toward fresh new highs and another record setter yesterday for the markets, the dow, the nasdaq and the s&p 500 all closing at fresh all-time highs with the dow up 137 points, s&p up 14 rand nasdaq higher at 59. global markets this morning look like this and in europe we have seen rally across the board as well, andrew bailey has been appointed as thefection governor of the bank of england, ftse 100 up 3 quarters of a percent. dax index in germany higher by 77. let's check asian markets overnight, there we see a mixed story, fractional moves pretty much, korea and the hong kong up, japan and china down, layoffs for the new year to report, u.s. steel is announcing new changes. lauren: bad news, u.s. steel will suspend operations at a plant near its -- operations near detroit plant that will leave more than 1500 job cuts by april, the company blaming worst

6:34 am
anyone already downloaded that personal data but facebook a stock to watch today, this is another privacy headache for the company. maria: unbelievable, they just keep oncoming, lauren, top story this half an hour, road block in the impeachment trial, house speaker nancy pelosi says now she will delay sending articles of impeachment to the senate for trial overclaims of an unclear process. >> impeach the president immediately everybody can go onto the next thing, the next thing for us will be when we see the process that they set forth in the senate, then we will know the number of managers that we may have to go forward and who -- who we would choose, one will see what they have will know who and how many we will send over, that's all i'm going say about that now. maria: it was such a rush to get it done before the end of the year in the house and now waiting, waiting, waiting. senate leader mitch mcconnell
6:35 am
and the president said that the democrats are running scare. >> too afraid to transmit their shoty work to the senate, mr. president, looks like to prosecutors are getting cold feet. now they are content to sit on their hands. >> now i understand they are playing games and they want to put in articles, ridiculous phoney articles, they don't want to put them in because they are ashamed of them, it's what they've done is wrong and bad for the country. maria: joining us to speak about that former speaker of the house nut gingrich, what do you make of this? >> it's really stupid, nancy pelosi made a big point to her members that they are supposed to be solemn and when a couple of them start today applaud she staired at them, to be calm and
6:36 am
turns right around and instead of dealing as solemn impeachment she turns into a political game and the reporters that night were absolutely shocked when she casually announced, oh, well, we will see when we send it over, it's one more step to devaluing the whole thing, makes it easier for mcconnell to hold together his team and makes it easier for the president to make the case to the country, this is all just politics, none of this is a genuine impeachment based on real violations of a law, straight out pure politics. >> she probably wants to hold onto this going into 2020, she wants to make sure she can ride thousand in 2020 during election year, she doesn't want it to go away quickly in the senate.
6:37 am
it's not a big winner. maria: breaking news. >> and liftoff, starliner. now 10 seconds into play. response is good. response looks good. 30 seconds in. continue to look good, vehicle

6:39 am
international space station. we are about -- >> 17 miles in altitude, 11 and a half range distance, 300 miles per hour. maria: that was so cool, newt, i know i interrupted you, you're a big space fan and we we wanted to watch the starliner. >> what we just saw is an example why president trump's goal of developing the moon and then mars is a realistic goal, we really are developing the technologies that in the next 10 or 12 years are going to allow us to be a major force in helping the human race move out of the solar system, i'm like you, i get really excited seeing these kind of breakthroughs and these kind of new capabilities, so you can interrupt me any time for major space launch. maria: that was absolutely fantastic, love it. >> rocket launches make me cry, i can't help it. i said to a friend of mine who lives along the coast of florida
6:40 am
right near cape canaveral so she's out on her deck watching this, you can see spectators and we are back like government working with lockheed and boeing. maria: don't forget where we are, china wants to be there and russia as well, the innovation continues certainly coming out of america. let me ask you about john durham, investigating now former cia director john brennan, we talked about this a lot over the last 2 years because, of course, brennan was running the cia when all of this informant activity was taking place way before july of 2016, durham is tasked with investigating the origins to have russian probe and requested, requested emails, call logs and other cia documents to see what the former director told colleagues about
6:41 am
the infamous steel dossier, a report from "the new york times", this is something that certainly i reported over the last couple of years as well, but brennan was certainly at the forefront of being involved in this, one of the master minds, in fact, that's what a number of guests have told me that john brennan was one of the master minds of origins of russia probe, we will see where it goes, what are you expecting in terms of accountability, in terms of what they did to donald trump in 2016 and trying to frame him? >> well, i think first of all the plot against the president captures the whole thing, work with devin nunes on putting together the story, the fact is that what we are learning and this might be one of trump's greatest contributions to american history, he has so enraged the order and showing how corrupt and dishonest it was, whether it's james comey, you watch him on tv today,
6:42 am
astonishing to see a man who cheerfully lies and you to assume in part of his brain he actually believes what he's saying. you look at brennan, brennan has always been a part of the deep state, i think he was a terrible director of the cia, terrible at the white house before that and frankly clapper who is somebody i have known for years did things that made no sense at all as director of national intelligence so you have -- i don't want to prejudge what durham is going to come up with but it's clear from inspector general's report and other things we are learning that you had a very large number of very senior people willing to break the law, willing to lie, willing to conspire and frankly even though this appears in "the new york times" we were willing to manipulate and use the washington post, "the new york times" and the major networks. maria: yeah. >> this pattern is there.
6:43 am
i think it's going to keep on rolling. maria: if you look back in the last 3 years, one to have reasons that i assumed that he was among the master minds is just watching him over the 3-year period when the russia collusion narrative was going strong, remember how many times he went on msnbc and cnn and said, the president committed treason, dagen, remember that, clapper and brennan were out in force saying treason this, treason that with president trump and i remember thinking to myself, how sit possible that a former direct other of the cia can make such claims without any evidence. >> i think part of this is we will have to cut through the bologna, these are bad people doing bad things that sickened the american system and threatened the freedom of office and there ought to be retribution and they ought to
6:44 am
infract and they were engaged in undermining the united states and undermining the rule of law and the right of the american people to be governed by the people they choose. maria: when this all start coming out, when john durham reports findings next year probably in the next, we are going to hear the details and it's maddening to know that their actually impeaching donald trump for meddling and getting foreigners involved and that is exactly what they did in 2016, the dossier coming from russia, it's just incredible. newt, good to see you. maria: take a break and then a crazy crash in florida, a truck smashes through an airport wall surprising the people inside, we will take a look at what happened and then the queen of christmas does it again mariah carey with updated music video.

maria: welcome back. good friday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is friday, december 20th. your top stories right now, just before 7:00 a.m. on the east coast. candidates clash in los angeles. democrats battling it out last night over trade, taxes, the environment and impeachment. the highlights from the debate and a look at who is on top. exposing the origins of the russia probe. doug collins will join me to talk about it. markets are in record territory, investors 1 shrugging off the impeachment and focusing on policy. it was another record day on wall street yesterday, it continues this morning. yesterday the dow, nasdaq and s&p 500 closed at fresh all-time highs, with the dow up 137, nasdaq up 60. global markets are mixed. european indices are higher.
7:01 am
fq100 up 55, three quarters of 1%. the cac in paris is up 35, two-thirds of a percent. dax index in germany up 102 points, three quarters of a percent. andrew bailey has been you appointed the next governor of the bank of england. security alert, thousands of owners of ring, the door l bell, reported had their personal information leaked. the t senate passed the biggest changes in over a decade, what it means for your future. all those stories coming up this friday morning. joining me to break it down, pollster, the author of persuasion, lee carter is here. fox business' dagen mcdowell, along with mitch roschelle. so much to talk about this morning. dagen: i will give you this before you get to congressman doug collins. as the democrats voted on impeaching president trump, a quinnipiac poll came out on the economy. 69% of americans say the economy is good or excellent.
7:02 am
95% of republicans, half of democrats, and that is up 8 points since late october. then at the same time you have vice president joe biden talking about how awful the economy is for working americans. and again, not living in the world of reality. maria: does he think anybody is believing him? how do these people say that the economy is not doing well and think that it's going to resonate with anybody? >> never le facts get in the wa- never let facts get in the way of a good story. >> there were a fair number of democrats who were on-board with that it's the idea of fairness. dagen: we're going to talk about fair. maria: income inebbing l wall aequality isactually narrowing. the bottom earners are going up. dagen: let's talk about fairness. nancy pelosi sent a message that
7:03 am
those deplorables out there who are clinging to their guns and their pi bibles, your votes dont count. maria: our top story is the impeachment standstill. nancy pelosi halted any impeachment proceedings until next year. house democrats now leaving for christmas break without sending the articles to the t senate. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell ripped democrats for this delay. >> when speaker pelosi suggested that house democrats may be too afraid to transmit their shoddy work product to the senate, looks like the pro prosecutors are getting cold feet in front of the entire country and second guessing whether they want to go to trial. they said impeachment was so urgent that it could not even wait for due process but now they're content to sit on their hands. maria: joining me right now is georgia congressman, doug collins. congressman, it's always a pleasure to see you. thanks so much for being here. >> good morning, maria. maria: i watched you the other day in the gallery for the
7:04 am
impeachment vote and you made a lot of important points. one of which was that they rushed this impeachment through, you were rushing, rushing, rushing, getting to the vote before everybody left for christmas and now she doesn't want to move on it. she's not sending it over to the senate. what do you know about this? >> the speaker never ceases to amaze. she's makes points, she tries to gain leverage on things she doesn't have leverage on and now what's really interesting was is that she's -- by holding this, she's made it a purely political exercise. by holding this out -- remember, her great statement, this is going to be a conscience vote, vote your conscience we're doing it for the marls of this country -- morals of this country. if i was one of those 31 documents in trump districts i would be saying hold on a second, we did what we thought was right and now you're making a political mockery of this. madam speaker, send the impeachment articles over so this president can get a fair
7:05 am
trial. that's not what's happening. this is typical speaker pelosi, typical what she's done from day one. she has no rudder except one thing, get this president defeated. maria: how much is it that she wants to keep president trump on his toes, keep him guessing in materials her next moves and what is that doing for the 2010 ten -- 2020 candidates. there's so much conversation about impeachment, it's taking all the oxygen out of the room, she is actually hurting her own candidates and her party, isn't she? they can't get their messages out. >> as a staunch republican and supporter of the president, nobody know what they're talking about. if you watch the debate, it's even worse. i think at this point in time, she is so centered on her attention and her spotlight and what she does as speaker that she's not concerned about the candidates at this point. she'll turn her attention to that later.
7:06 am
>>.she's desperately wanting a democrat to beat president trump this year. that's why they've been manipulating this process all along. adam schiff, you move it to closed doors, you leak out what you want to leak out. when it came out into the open, people are saying this is not matching up what we're hearing out of closed doors. when it comes to the rubber stamp of the judiciary committee and what we saw on the floor, adam schiff emerged from his hole and came out to the floor of the house to help manage part of the articles the other day. every time he wanted to say something, i would pop back with the truth and finally he sat back down on wasn't answering anymore. they know what they you put out was a bad a product. that's why they are sitting back and saying to the american people just trust us. the american people see through it, like you were talking about with the economy. the american people are saying her rhetoric and reality don't. maria: it's so shameful that the democrats are unwilling to admit that there were serious,
7:07 am
serious wrong-doing done in 2016 and the election to try to frame donald trump and to try to really put a coup in place to take him down when he was candidate and after he was president. i'm grateful i have been able to work with you and devin nunes and john ratcliffe over these three years to understand what took place and tell our viewers about it over the last three years and we talked a lot about who the mastermind of all of this could be, among the masterminds, and it always went back to the cia. our audience knows that. john durham is investigating former cia director john brennan, the prosecutor tasked with investigating the origins of the russia probe reportedly is requesting brennan's e-mails and call logs and other cia documents to he see what brennan told colleagues about the steele dossier. this is the new york times reporting this. we knew this, that brennan was going to get fingered. what do you make of this? >> well, i see the new york
7:08 am
times spinning this to try to soften what may be the ultimate blow here. there's a reason democrats are screaming impeachment so loud right now. it's the christmas season, time of redemption. what we'r finding is all those s who talked about page, brennan, clapper, all those folks, they were saying you're wrong, you're wrong, schiff wrote a document that became purely fiction which is not uncommon for adam schiff. that might be his next career, writing fiction books. when we had the ig report come out out, we had mr. comey last week on the sunday shows absolutely make a mockery of himself, when he acted like he didn't know what was wrong or that anything was wrong in the fbi on these investigations, when he was signing off on these fisa requests, when you had the fisa court come out and say you better get this stuff right
7:09 am
because we're not going to tolerate this kind of stuff anymore. when you start seeing that, i made a comment to some folks down here this morning, the story of next year will be the durham investigation. the story of next year i believe is going to be a redemption to where the american people can under bill blue barr and this leadership can trust law enforcement, to call the balls and strikes as they should. that's going to be the good story coming out of the first of the year. maria: i agree with you, especially as he looks at what took place before july of 2016. the fbi is lying saying the counter investigation of trump began in july of 2016. we know that's not true. we know there were informants running into campaign people as early as march of 2016. when you look at general flynn, you can go back to end of '15? >> they were desperate. when they saw candidate trump make in-roads into the political process, resonating to his meg as and when he -- message and when he became the nominee and
7:10 am
into the -- becoming the president-elect and then the president, you see it ramping up. i think it's amazing how the stories are trying to be spun now. that's not what we really did, this was all a perfect investigation kind of thing and it's all turning out to be wrong. comey cannot go on tv without basically looking like the incompetent leader that he is. he's not captain america. he's captain, i leak and captain lie. that's what he did when he was trying to o -- i told the democratic majority has been trying to do this since novembet impeachment. the opportunity started last november when they gained the majority. they had the others laid in place because they wanted to get rid of him. i'm looking forward to the break when we look forward to an a impeachment where we'll see the president acquitted, when we see the ending of this impeachment sham and then we move forward into the new year when we start shedding light on what actually happened and making sure the department of justice is working
7:11 am
for the american people, not for the corrupt kabal there was there under the obama add medicine. maria: it's pretty extraordinary. i want to know how far up the ladder it goes. brennan seems to have been among the masterminds of the plan to insert donald trump's name into russian meddling from the get-go. who else was involved? did it go all the way up to loretta lynch and president obama? >> well, that's going to be the thing we're continuing to look at. i'm glad durham is taking his time, he's looking at this, unlike the russian sham job we saw in the house of representatives for the last three months, mr. durham is not going to be pressured by anyone. he's going to do his job, come out with what he needs to come out with. what we're seeing here, go back to miss lynch, attorney general lynn of, the clinton e-mail investigation, we've already seen the problems that were developing there, saying we're changing how we talked about it. these are the kind of things that, again, people want to say you're just wanting to go back in the past but to understand
7:12 am
this impeachment, to understand, you've got to understand the path. in our country we're too commit todd 30 second sound -- committed to 30 second sound bites, our attention span is so short, we have to remind people, the reason you have impeachment is because of what the core run kabal started before the president was the no, ma'a kneee republican party. when you have adam schiff, translates into the impeachment, when adam schiff took a political pot shot, hack job, that's all that was, to name devin nunes and other reporter as having call records associated with other individuals, that was nothing but wrong. it's a dishonesty that should never be tolerated in the halls of congress and we saw it there simply for political retribution. adam schiff should be ashamed, the democratic party should be ashamed. that's all the impeachment articles showed at the end, this was nothing but a political hack
7:13 am
job. maria: they seem to be strategic in materials of changing the narrative on you -- terms of changing the narrative on you guys, on the republicans. we know that jim comey and brennan and clapper and andrew mccabe were intimately involved in all the decision-making. yet, they come up with the impeachment and they sort of take the oxygen out of the room and muddy up the story and here we are, waiting for any accountability on this. it's shameful that you haven't seen the democrats focused on what went wrong. anybody on both sides of the aisle should be outraged by what took place in '16. even the media won't admit it. you think we'll see accountability? >> i do. bill barr came in earlier this year, we see this investigation taking place. we see him taking bold steps to restore the dignity of the department of justice. we see this moving forward. again, remember, i'm going to flip your narrative a little bit. let's make sure the american people understand, they're shifting the narrative because
7:14 am
they don't want to talk about the truth. when they get to the issues at hand, with what they came up with impeachment, we kept beating it back so many times on the story. they started with ex portion, briber -- extortion, bribery. we beat it back. when they came out with articles, they had abuse of power and obstruction of congress. that's what you're going to come out with? maria: the other things, the policies are working, usmca passed the house. that's going to create hundreds of thousands ofs jobs in an economy that shows unemployment at 5 o 50 year low. they don't want to talk about that either. it's good to see you. we'll continue following it. i hope you'll come back soon. >> i'll definitely do that. take care. merry christmas. maria: coming up, ring owners are at risk, data reportedly being leaked, the details coming up. as you can see, amazon shares are flat. amazon owns ring. retirement changes, lawmakers tapping a p sweeping system overhaul, what you need to know

wealth tax idea. watch this. >> what is your a argument to the voter watching this debate tonight who may not like everything president trump dust but they really like this economy and don't know why they should make a change. >> i don't think they like the economy. talk to the middle class neighbors. middle class is getting killed, is getting crushed. >> how do you answer top economists who say taxes of this magnitude would stifle growth and investment. >> oh, they're just wrong. >> so there's a lot of -- >> they're just wrong? >> there's a lot to unpack there. as you know, although the country is 75 supportive of a wealth tax, i'm not supportive of a wealth tax. i think that we do have to have tax reform. i don't believe that this tax reform has trickled down like we've talked about. i do think there's incredible issues in the economy, whether student loans or healthcare costs, we can go through different things. i think that a being said, the
7:39 am
democrats need a strong economic message because the president can run on the economy. the economy is good. the stock market's up. gdp is growing. wages are growing. but as i say with steve moore and larry kudlow, gdp is not where we expected it. it's right now around 2%. they were expecting 4 to 5%. the deficit's the highest it's ever been. what happened to -- maria: i don't know they were expecting 4 to 5%. come on, i know the president said 4% at one point. nobody was expecting 4 to 5%. >> steve and larry were. but -- i actually think -- maria: we'll get the gdp today, in less than an hour. jump in, dagen. dagen: i want to ask you this. speaking of hits and apjoe biden. >> give me a soft ball. [ laughter ] dagen: i was going to ask you about -- i have it in front of me. michael bloomberg is taking shots at joe biden. he basically said the presidency -- here's what he said. he, meaning joe biden, has never
7:40 am
been the manager of an r organization, never run a school system. the presidency shouldn't be a training job. you need somebody who comes in and knows how to run an organization. what do you make of that? >> i was with mayor bloomberg yesterday and, listen, he has a very interesting perspective. he also is making a pitch on electability. he's doing something that's never been done before. he's not going to the first four primaries. he's going right into super tuesday. if you look at his analytics, what he is saying is the first four primaries and caucuses, iowa, new hampshire, nevada and south carolina, are 3.9% of the delegates. super tuesday is 34% of the delegates which is inside a week after south carolina. why is everyone spending 90% in iowa and new hampshire as opposed to 90% in super tuesday? >> you know who followed that strategy? rudy. >> it didn't. >> it didn't help hi so much.
7:41 am
>> rudy didn't have $250 million to spend on it or 50 billion. he's going against the grain. if you listen to his view, he thinks electability, he thinks managing. he obviously takes incredible shots at trump on different things. that's for another topic. there's a lot of people who i think certainly feel he's going to disrupt the primary season. dagen: if you google bloomberg organization sexual harassment lawsuits, what comes up an ad for mike bloomberg's presidential campaign. maria: you can google impeachment and an ad for mike bloomberg comes up. >> his social media, he spent $100 million or he's going to spend $100 million. dagen: so far. >> the truth is, his stuff on climate change and gun reform, he's been on the forefront. p i'.i'm supportive of where hes been on gun reform. i'm not sure he will be the nominee. to think he won't disrupt the
7:42 am
primary, we're kidding ourselves. dagen: i know we have to go. >> we don't have to go. dagen: we have to pay the bills. maria: we have breaking you news. go ahead. dagen: mike bloomberg, it feels like it will be online dating where the profile picture looks awesome and the carefully crafted biobut when you get on the ground and see people in broad daylight and you realize, he's an elitist billionaire who doesn't relate to the everyman and every woman. >> one swipe to the left, is that what you're saying. >> one think obama and trump made shirks it's retail politics, it's getting people out to vote, making sure there's excitement. you need the electricity to win the nomination. maria: thank you. great to see you. happy holidays to you. >> you as well. maria: here's the breaking news l. an issue with the boeing star liner. after launching, we watched the launch live. the star liner capsule missed a

>> mayor just recently had a fund-raiser that was headline in a wine cave full of -- served 900 dollar a bottle wine billionaires in wine kaefrz should not pick the next president of the united states. >> mr. mayor. >> your net worth 100 times mine. >> senator warren brushed off criticism of tax from economists who say it would hurt economic growth former vice president joe biden said he would he switch over from oil and gas to a green economy even if it meant would it cost hundreds of thousands of workers, their jobs. >> as president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even though o potentially that it could display of thousands maybe hundreds of thousands blue-collar workers in the interest of transi guessing to greiner economy. >> the answer is yes, the answer is yes, because the opportunity --
8:01 am
[applause]. so that the opportunity to transition to high-paying jobs is realm we are only country no one has taken great, great in turning into he enormous opportunities. >> how do you answer top economists who say taxes of this magnitude will style of growth and investment. >> oh they are just wrong! . reporter: pete buttigieg received most attacks from every candidate not nationwide front-runner but is in iowa the very first state to vote in the democratic primary, just over a month from where now, maria. maria: all right hillary, hillary overdrawn joining us hot talks the energy sector and climate change elizabeth warren has been very vocal about her plans to clean energy, a little bit what have she said on that. >> i will not build more nuclear i want to put energy literally and more than and resources behind clean energy and increasing by tenfold what
8:02 am
we have put into science put into research and development. the biggest climate problem we face, is a politicians in washington. who keep saying the right things, but continue to take money from oil industry, continue to bow down to the lobbyists to lawyers, to the thank tanks to the bought and paid for deserts. >> let's talk to somebody in the business does this every day ceo of continue continent a.m. resources with me harold, it is good to see you this morning, thanks so much for joining us you just heard elizabeth warren wanting to go clean tell us how you see it. you wrote a letter you wrote a letter to the senator urging her to come to oklahoma, for tour of the overtime and natural gas industry is a that right? >> thanks, maria good to be on your show i don't think i have been on since the republicans convention actually. maria: you are right. >> good to be with you --
8:03 am
>> thank you so much for coming back sir. >> elizabeth warren has that she is coming to oklahoma this would be good opportunity for her to learn just a little bit about oil and gas. and what we produce here. cleanest energy, light-sweet crude natural gas. basically allowed america to clean up its air, water, and we are back to 1990 levels. with the emissions in this country all good abundance of natural gas, and clean energy that would have in this country we're not only have it in this country we are exporting it around the world. we are exporting freedom, and clean air. so that is what is going on. and she needs to learn about it, and you know, this is a great opportunity for her to do that if she is coming to the state and she announced she is so this is a -- invitation to her and we have
8:04 am
reached out have not heard back from her but, you know, she needs to find out what we're doing here, and we would like to take that opportunity we can take her to wealth tax within 30 minutes of being in city here. >> we're showing your alert in your letter you wrote our domestic energy resurgence make being america energy and economic superpower keeps hundreds of billions every dollars out of hands of rogue regimes and corrupt encrypt to beingcracies the renaissance is largest story in global energy since discovery of oil in the middle east so you are saying you have heard back from her then? >> we have not heard. >> you have not heard back. >> we have not. we reached out repeatedly to her, and certainly we would like to take this opportunity to inform her what is going on she needs to know about oil
8:05 am
and impasse whgas what it was d america for the world this changed the world she needs to know about that, and they are willing to sacrifice millions of jobs and workers kind of going down a path that -- in that regard, about what she did but didn't have work for her probably won't work for these folks either they need to know what is going on, and how -- what a great thing this is. we promised energy independence by 2020 we are there. we've -- now producing more in gas and thats consuming in america. >> i think most people recognize that these are not just american growth stories, but this is national security. right? this is also about jobs, in
8:06 am
america, but it is also about national security because we can rely less on you know, like you said rogue regimes, saudi arabia, among others because it is becoming more and more that u.s. is independent. the largest producer. >> all those things, trade, where would we be today if we were importing all that oil that we used to -- >> trade is a big thing. the other thing is taking our soldier out of harm's way in the middle east. you know they knocked off, five million barrels a day over there, saudi arabia, and you saw just a -- did not hardly see a blip on the cost of crude oil used to oil, skyrocketed. today it doesn't. >> yeah. >> it is because of what we're doing in america. and what we have done. so you know, it is a -- it is
8:07 am
great that you know we have unleashed american energy with drilling, and that is the difference, and this -- this will be here for 40, 50 years, so it is great thing that occurred. she needs to learn about it. so any away that would help, she talks about congress well she is one of the congressman. >> that is right she is obviously, a senator has been you know, on the senate, during periods of -- of -- you know times of when she said thature not holding people accountable she was running consumer agency so you have to say well your on the senate, and you ran this agency what have you done about these issues that you keep bringing up. i want to ask you a question about oil production today, because there is a report that i am looking at that says the -- consensus oil production expectations at capex levels
8:08 am
are in line with consensus but analysis at goldman sachs says that the inventory of weflz left to be drilled for continue continental resources and peers suggests fewer years undeveloped inventory compared to large cap bermean. >> what do you have to say about potential he to be drilled for confidential resources today. >> our company is one of those companies that have very large, inventory of wells so it is going to be there for next for decades. so you know, and same say with permian the bachan we are -- largest producer lease holder in -- there, the field that did it all opened the door to shale, oil shale development,
8:09 am
in u.s. shale so it is -- it is a -- great field maria much, much more to do we are in beginnings up there everybody realizes that we have so much more to do that is a good thing we're not going to run out of oil ands any time soon. >> are you planning on leaving fourth quarter 19 production flat and what are you expecting in terms of production in 2020? because i want to get to the issue of capex whether or not an increase in capex one of the areas we saw a lot of spending investment but recently people have been worried the capex slowed down. can you tell us about your own production plans, are you going to the flaen fourth quarter what does 2020 look like how would you characterize capex plans. >> that is a fact we don't talk about 2020 yet until through this quarter, but
8:10 am
let's talk about capital discipline, that is really what you are seeing with the industry. you are not seeing vast overspending everything with the industry anymore. that is not what street wanted. and, you know, we have to do -- companies we have to conform to the desires of the public and the street. and certainly, continental is leading the way with stocks stock buybacks also dividend we are doing all things we should be doing, and not over-- we have had fast growing since 2016, and that is part of what we do. and so plan ahead is -- is something everybody does, so that is what it is all about now. >> you think capital investment increases in 2020 broadly speaking without
8:11 am
giving away plans i know you haven't released what you are going to do in 2020 i know volumes at springboard oil volumes were exceeding expectations exceeding guidance do you expect going to see capex pick up in the year ahead? >> as to i think it will be -- i think will be pretty moderate across the industry. >> okay. >> that is i believe it will. >> you rental nouns you are stepping down as cetcho of continue continentedal resources company you found you will become executive chairman in january done incredible job gone gratlations to you -- >> thank you, stepping up i have a bigger role so stepping up to another role, and -- it has been really received, by the market, and everybody realizes excellent selection, so very well received. >> great to have you on the praem happy holidays to you merry christmas sir.

8:16 am
starliner after launching earlier this morning, we showed you the launch earlier live fox news in cape canaveral this morning florida, what can you tell us. reporter: well appears to be bad disappointing news for boeing star liners, simply put engine are burn needed for the capsule on crew for uncrueed not able to make it to the international space station supposed to happen tomorrow morning the big question, of course, at this point, why did this happen, it could have been the first stage of the alice 5 rocket could have been second stage, of the rocket or the engines, engineers with o boeing, united launch allie arns till straying to figure all of this out they will be on hand, for a post launch please briefing when will start 9:00 top of the hour and hopefully, a lot of the these questions can get answered but
8:17 am
boeing and united launch alliance wells nasa basically scrambling to try to figure out what happened what can be done according to nasa star russian crew capsule is in stable orbit right now under full power, recon figured it so solar rays facing sun can charge batteries while they determine what exactly can be done some think possibly, the capsule itself could just reenter the atmosphere and land safely at one of the five landing zones that boeing has out in the western united states. possibly could still dock but speculation is that would likely use up all of its remaining fume so then the question would be how to star runner have it leave space station make a safe landing on earth this appears a major setback for boeing this was supposed to be you know their big we can prove it we can fly
8:18 am
it we can doc it at space station safely so they can start flying astronauts early ethics year nasa's other commercial crew partners spacex had test flight in march quite successful uncrueed puts in position to return launching americans from american soil early next year we will know more the top of the hour. >> phil keating in florida, cape canaveral there, and really made such important point what this is going to do to boeing boeing has been under pressure given the fact it had those two fatal crashes with 737 max jet, and was looking forward to successful launch here dagen your reaction to these issues? dagen: this is the first test flight of the starliner space capsule test flight unmanned, this is why you do testing. and so it is unfortunately that there is a problem
8:19 am
getting the capsule into the proper orbit, but if you look back at spacex, and its history reminded people about the -- rocket explosions on the launchpad when they were first doing this, this is not nearly that severe because, again, this was i think it was an atlas v rocket atlas v rocket got the capsule into space, it has just an issue of the orbit problem, and we will see how they manage it but test flight. it is exceptional to watch it is an important step toward united states with private industry getting back into the space race, if you will. maria: we will keep watching this developments meanwhile, quickly break when we come back backs office boom. >> ♪

it still represents a slowdown from pace we are at even at the beginning of the year. the you know the fourth quarter last year all hell was breaking loose markets melting down gdp was 2.5 year-on-year so 2.1 -- a slowdown. >> 2.1% for the third quarter overall estimate is for the third quarter we really want to know what you think about the fourth quarter. >> for sure. >> right in line with estimates 2.1% the number just coming out across the tape to lauren simonetti has more details lauren. >> yeah markets staying as they were okay. so over the summer the economy grew 2.1% this is the final reading, of gdp, so it will not be a arrived putting us in perspective for you first quarter we had 3.1% growth, second quarter 2%, third quarter 2.1% november retail sales disappointing some concern even though might not feel like it concern economy slowing in the fourth quarter but this number right in line
8:31 am
with expectations, market unchanged. we are back to you. >> good perspective lawyer tone look at the year that is what you mentioned earlier stephanie seeing a scloedown i have got to say i think this is a good noub even though slowing slower than a year ago 2.1% pretty much what we have been looking for what the white house has been project as well. >> yeah, it certainly is not anything to get exercised about a slowdown obviously, the question fourth quarter are we animal to see certain reacceleration depends how ask new york says, .7 atlanta fed, 2.4 so you can drive a truck through those estimates. i mean if you split the difference, we are still talking about a continuation of this slowdown in growth. i think lauren'ss observation on retail sale is important case obviously, this holiday season is going to be critical in terms of giving up some indication as to you know
8:32 am
consumer spending frankly as you and i have talked about a lot, i have been really disappointed with consumer spending you know we hear everyone characterize the consumer as strong, and the consumer is strong. financially. but that is a separate topic from spending. i mean we are basically record low o unemployment we have household net worth in absolute terms and relative to income at unprecedented you know record extremes, debt service at record lows, you know inflation fed can't seem to get above 2% sustain it basically, everything you could poubl wish for consumer they've had and then some the backdrop could not be more favorable yet we do see the broad slowdown, in the pace of consumer spending broadly particularly in the discretionary spending like retail sales i am not saying
8:33 am
consumer is falling out of bed he should be skipping down aisles making it rain this christmas buying things right and left given the financial backdrop. and earlier indications are that is not the case. dagen: consumer spending revised up to 3.2% annual rate of growth. up from 2.9% so the consumer that is looks pretty good i know backward-looking. >> it is will down from 4.6 the second quarter and, again, we will have to see what fourth quarter brings which is where that retail sales in november, bear in mind that november retail sales that is same month that we created 266,000 jobs blue away expectations. >> if you look at holiday sales, this is kind of a silly year the way that thanksgiving fell so -- messing up a lot of the numbers but year-over-year national retrial federation has 4 plus percent could suggest, mastercard tracks
8:34 am
look like tracking there, holiday season will be in line with expectations, so that should be good you would think a for fourth quarter gdp from consumer side? >> jyeah the atlanta fed 2.4 consumer spending up 2.3, so you know they are definitely looking for a ib sizable contribution from the consumer, again, i am not saying that the -- consumer is you know in recession or anything like that it is just relative you ll to put everything in context the consumer should be spending much more aggressively than he is, and it is not a new phenomena, i think this is important to keep that in mind, you know there was a lot of life service paid to new normal, in the aftermath of the crisis, the consumers you know were burned by experience housing bubble would try to repair balance sheets they have been doing that, we have seen in unprecedented fashion an increase in the savings rate at the same time,
8:35 am
financial assets have been going through the roof. normally when you look at 40 k up 20% you say well may be i don't have to sock away as much out of my paycheck that is always been the relationship prices go up saving goes down right now seeing yawning gap that way not just last few months but for the last several years so i think there is a new consumer behavior, and the reason i am pounding the table on this is that it keeps coming back to profits, that is what drives stock market i think we looked lu this year a lot of horrible news on the economy, and politics and everything the markets up 27% in face of all of these headwinds, because they are discounting the end of trade kwar idea everything will be better buts consumer was never affected by the trade war, that is why it is so critical, to look at what was lapping. >> has anything changed for you given the fact a lot of
8:36 am
things came together the end of the year usmca got house vote passage china got a skinny deal, phase one going to sign it in early next year. but -- >> i mean it is likes the lift -- >> does that change expectations for 2020 all things think. >> i didn't either the fact that it came together it came together you know like early christmas for investors. the one thing investors need. maria: fourth quarter 2020. >> change se.. >> no from growth standpoint i that i much more it is a much more favorable backdrop for growth. the problem is that the markets rallied 27% in, anticipation that all these things would be resolved i don't think that you now say okay they are resolved we're going up another -- >> on the back of what happened the fourth quarter last year though let's remember you know took most of the year to just get back to where we were.
8:37 am
>> around the we up like 16 if you go back to the point where we -- >> october i think up -- 12 or 13 from october last year. >> three-quarters on the way to four quarters of profits recession, it is just -- complete -- clearly the markets have looked through a huge decline in profits, and slowdown in growth and political dysfunction on assumption this was all temporary it would be resolved. dagen: they also are looking at accommodative fed not only cut interest rates but the last, several meetings but also that it is now growing balance sheet again. and you talked about that. you talked about it for literally years when thee started balance sheet reduction they don't know what here to doing they have no idea, what the -- the financial market impact will be, of this and tightening they are causing. and they finally woke up to that. >> right, i think one of the
8:38 am
things that forced them to wake up to it that there was clearly a shift in the appetite for risk this repo market problem, you know, assurances just typically, to contrary had to do with being some gap between supply and demand, and that is either a function of people being less willing to lend to what they perceive riskier credits so are someone in a situation where they needed liquidity in a hurry because they had some kind of -- you know shift in their balance sheet so i think that is the catalyst for repo market was a shift in risk appetite when gets to the daysen's point now that fed is on to it, does that make people feel better about credit quality? liquidity is one thing credit quality is another. so we will see how that
8:39 am
progresses. dagen: but how are low grade credits done in the last say six months? >> well against where you look if you look at the weakest links triple c, the leathered alone market has been hammered yet if you go up a couple runs people are still -- >> for yield clamoring into it. >> think about also, interest rates are low, that debt service eel coverage situation isn't as bad as it has been in previous cycles. >> guys at low end have no cash can't handle any increase in debt service that is topic for another day. maria: are we going to see i before christmas. >> i don't think so, merry christmas, thank you for everything. >> i will see you next year. >> looking forward to it. >> a quick break when we come back apple out of this world secret contingent giant eyeing satellites to beam data directly to devices what it could mean for your iphone, do you need your burrito in a
