cfra, ken leon is here. pollster, author of persuasion, great book, lee carter is here and the ceo and managing partner of rose cliff, mike murphy. great to see everybody. >> great to be here. maria: welcome back. haven't seen you in a while, mike. thank you for being here. this on the kickoff to the christmas week, holiday shortened week. the top story, china trade breakthrough once again. this is impacting markets. this morning, china will cut tariffs on a wide range of products. it starts january 1st. here are the 850 products that will see cuts in tariff prices including frozen pork, smartphone technology, pharmaceuticals, information technology, you cuts -- cuts this summer as well, $389 million in tariffs last year. what is your reaction to this? is this a little olive branch for the u.s.? >> this is a step in the right direction. obviously, there's more work to be done but this is something from china, not the u.s. so definitely this moves the ball forward. we're positive on this, along of
course with the strong u.s. economy. maria: i don't know how good this phase one deal is, mike, but we've got to get it signed and once we do, that is certainly a step in the right direction. >> absolutely. and the p optics of this is going to bring a lot of money off the sidelines into the market. a lot of people have been saying they want to see what happens, want to see if a china trade deal gets done. markets have nice rally, what if a deal doesn't get done. it looks like a phase one deal will get done. we have a lot of money that will come into the markets, even though we're at all-time highs. that should push us higher. maria: unchartered territory already. i want to know your outlook for 2020 in terms of markets and the economy. you think this is the beginning of a new rally here? >> i think there's room to run for the markets. as long as the economic data from the u.s. is as strong as it's been, it doesn't have to be gangbusters, as long as we don't hit -- not too long ago we were talking about a recession in the u.s. along as we have growth, as long as we have strong jobs picture,
the market can go higher. maria: look how we're ending the year, record after record in terms of market performance. >> there's great confidence we've the fed on the sidelines, we had a great year of rate cuts. but look at the consumer. look at housing. we have new home sales today, they're going to be positive again. durable goods, good, consumers are buying cars. that might offset in durable goods. boeing, that's another story. maria: that's a separate situation. >> totally. but when you look at next year, i think we have confidence. it's to be expected that we're looking for the market to be up and we're looking for the economy to grow. market we're looking for possibly 7, 8% up from here which is pretty good after a strong r year in 2019, 26%. maria: another 7, 8% in the stock market against a very strong economy, this is going to be good for the president's re-election efforts. look at the impeachment push. jeff van drew joined me yesterday in an exclusive interview on why he switched
from being a democrat to the republican party. first time i've seen someone from the majority moving to the minority. he talked about impeachment and why he switched parties. watch this. >> the phi l nail sign for me was -- final sign for me was oddly enough, one of the county chairmen came to me and said i want to speak to you. he said i want to let you know that you have to vote for impeachment. i said what do you mean? he said you've got to vote for impeachment. if you don't, your not -- you're not going to be able to run in my county. i worked so hard and tried to give so much, not only to the party, but to everybody. the thing that we've done and i won't go into them, but many, many infrastructure projects and helping people and all the services that we try to give people in our offices and it all boiled down to one vote that i may have my own individual opinion on one vote and that's
not going to be allowed. i'm going to be punished for that? that's when i knew. maria: wow. so lee carter, we talked about this before. the shaming, the constant slamming, if you don't agree with them on anything. that's why he switched parties. >> it's astounding, frankly. maria: i know. >> we found three-quarters of americans are trusting government less as a result of what's going on with impeachment. and that is -- maria: wow. >> -- a huge, huge number. i think it's because of things like this. you feel the pressure. you feel like everybody is politicized. it seems like he's not able to have his own opinion and i think overall people are seeing into this and saying you know what, i don't trust the whole process and a i don't trust the government anymore. and that's really -- i think it's very dang. maria: dangerous.maria: i thie turning against this because the process, they're not believing in. they want fairness.
at the end of the day, i think on both sides of the aisle we just want fairness. that's why i was so outraged by the fbi behavior in 2016. >> they want fairness. maria: you don't want somebody putting their finger on the scale. we vote for that. >> that's right. a lot of people we spoke to and i've spoken to in research we've done is okay, improper, maybe. impeachable? i'm not so sure. they feel like this is very political. they're not sure that anyone is out to get to the real truth, only the truth they want to get to. when you hear the behind the scenes story, i don't think it helps the democrats. >> you hope at some point in the country we get to like you said, you he vote for people and those people go -- whether it's along party lines but they're going to represent you and me and all of us. maria: and respect your friends' ideas. >> we've gotten so far away from that. hopefully this will start to bring us back to where you can have some sort of normalcy in washington. the president talked about draining swamp. hopefully we get to a place
where we can trust politicians. it's going to be tough. maria: i don't know about that. this is why jeff van drew turned. he has been very practice at this l call and moving on -- practice at this l call and moving on what -- practical and moving on what he thinks will impact people. >> the question is what about the independents or silent majority or is it cascading to two sides. what's the poll there's. >> what's interesting to me, they call them the anxious-it's like the anxious middle, something like 67% right now are so overwhelmed and anxious by what they see, they would rather not watch, they don't want to be engaged. what happens is we've got people on either side who are super engaged and much louder. we've got the in betweens and they can't deal with it. i don't blame them. it's difficult. it's hard to watch. they're trying to live their life. they're busy. they're making decisions based on what they feel. the economy is feeling good. they're busy, wanting to raise their families, be engaged with they things they want to do but
this is toxic to them. maria: don't you think most people that we know are hanging out in the middle. >> yes. maria: you might lean to the right on economics or certain things, lean to the left on other things but you're not an extreme person. >> absolutely. maria: about these issues. >> that's the point i was bringing up that hopefully politicians realize they need to speak to that, the middle. maria: i hope so. >> seems like they're focusing on one side or another. in the middle is where most people are. >> maybe it starts in iowa with the caucuses. maria: that's right. that's right after the super bowl, february. super bowl is february 2nd. that weekend. and then the iowa caucuses after that. we'll see when the senate trial is. you've got several senators that will have to be in that seat, in that room during a senate trial. so if it goes beyond january, they obviously are impacted by not being able to go to iowa. the weekend's box office, let's talk about this, star wars was the rise of skywalker soared with $175 million. now, that crushed cats.
but disney could be shaking in their boots anyway. the latest installment in the star wars franchise saw lower opening weekend franchise numbers than the last two films in the trill trilogy. mike, did you take your family yet? >> we didn't. we're not huge star wars people. the rides are cool at the parks but there's a generation that's really into star wars, i don't know if they're bringing new people into the star wars. maria: that's a good point. there are real -- they used to call them trekkies for star trek. they mega fans. they have to renew that to get new fans. you don't think they're doing that? >> they're not. maybe disney plus will bring the new generation in. they'll stream the old movies, get into that way. not in the murphy household yet. >> my husband was talking about this with his best friend from growing up. their kids are not into star wars. they can't get their sons to watch it with them.
it was a fascinating conversation. maria: they're doing technology, maybe, doing video games. >> it's a strong brand. they'll wait another year or two before they do another one. to the point, there's big flow-through to the parks. maria: that's a good point. we will take a short break. when we come back, we're getting started this morning. coming up on "mornings with maria" we're talking all things impeachment, what's the latest and when and if the articles go to the senate. congressman brad winstrop is my special guest here. joe piscopo weighs in on eddie murray's return to sideline. an"saturdaynight live." and we talk about what are your new year's resolutions. mormore than 50 people were injd in a nasty pileup in virginia to testimony yotell you about. we'll bring you your forecast and travel alerts. plus, talk about a christmas surprise, rapper 50 scent givess

maria: welcome back a. a u.s. soldier killed in afghanistan, lauren simonetti with headlines now. lauren. lauren: good morning, maria. the u.s. military says the unidentified service member died today during combat. officials are not saying where in afghanistan the soldier was killed. but this death brings the total number of u.s. combat deaths in afghanistan this year to 20. as travelers head out for the holidays, a massive 69-car pileup brought traffic to a standstill on i-64 near williamsburg, virginia yesterday. chain reaction crash entered more than 50 people, some of those injuries life-threatening.
state police say ice and dense fog may have played a role in the crash, made it hard to see. first responders had to walk over cars to get where they needed to go. boeing looking for answers following n a abort test flight of the star liner spacecraft. the flight was cut short after a it ended up in the wrong orbit after a clock was improperly set. it was brought back to earth yesterday, landing in the new mexico desert safely. no people on that flight. but this could mean something for boeing. maria: it's really an important story, lauren. because boeing has been under such pressure all year, mike. was this something that -- i mean, it was unmanned. but this just adds to the negative sentiment around boeing, don't you sunshine. >> ithink? -- don't you think? >> it does. the president is talking about space so boeing needs to be at the forefront of that but i think you talk about the negatives on boeing, the stock
has come down from about 370, 380 down to 328 range 3-rbgs 30 range. i think if you look out long term, boeing will get past this. from an investment standpoint, i think the worst is over and boeing is a good company to look at for the long term. maria: i think i agree with you. you can't say that crashes are not going to happen. issues are not going to happen. this is what the company does. when you look at an overall revenue, it's been a winner. it's been a leader in the country. it's the leading exporter, right? >> yes. it's been a winner globally. as you have more and more countries like china getting bigger, ordering planes, if you look at it, boeing i think will do fine. >> it's hurt the market. maria: certainly has. >> it's hurt the market. it's been the cockroach series, so on time line we've had a number of negatives. at the end of the day, the world is a du duopoly of boeing and
airbus. i don't know whether it's going to be first quarter or the end of 2020, but for an investor and the impact on the dow, it l stil gets people's attention but it's unfortunately not in the green l column at this point. maria: a real christmas grinch caught on camera, a delivery man takes a package back after he dropped it off. scrambling for the holidays, you still need to buy gifts, you're not alone. we'll tell you how many shoppers waited until the last minute. back in a minute, right here. ♪ you better not pout, i'm telling you why. ♪ santa claus is coming to town. ♪

this despite an initial trade deal between the u.s. and china as well as opec production cuts. joining us now, steven shork. do you agree with those out there that are looking for too much oil, a glut in supply? what's your take for 2020? >> abs a lieutenantly, maria. we already have to a certain extent a glut if you believe in the forward curve of the market. so what we've seen over the last quarter is the price of oil priced out into the future for nearer term deliveries so on the front end of the curve is losing value to oil priced further out along the curve. in commodity markets where the nearby market falls relative to the outside market, that is your clearest tell tale that either you have too much supply, you don't have enough demand or you have a combination thereof. so yes, the market is well-supplied with oil. now, i am going to put a caveat out there, maria. what we're about to see, it began last week, we're going to see for at least maybe the next
four, five weeks, you're going to see a material drawdown in crude oil supplies in pad three which is the u.s. gulf coast. think mississippi, the coast of alabama, louisiana, texas, so forth. the refinery, oil refinery, epicenter of the united states. you're going to see a massive drawdown, probably we saw a drawdown in barrels of about 3 million barrels last week, the market got excited about that. you'll probably see another seven to maybe 10 more million barrels drawn down in this market area over the next month. this is very normal. so it's very important that investors or traders pay attention to this. you'll see media headlines saying the inventories are falling. it will be a short-lived decline. barrels will come back in january. this is all about an assessment that oil inventory owners are encouraged to purchasing their inventory -- purged their inventories they have on reserve
because they're taxed on the inventory. they want to draw it down, to lower the tax bill. let's not get fooled by a drawdown in the oil over the next few months. >> oil glut, that seems to be coming from the u.s., and yet there's a story in the wall street journal today speaking to banks beginning to tighten loans to developers. i get it on the seasonality at the refining level. but on the e & p area, could there be the question that there's going to be a tightening because the global supply is coming from west texas. >> yeah, absolutely, it's an excellent point. what you're going to have -- we have to keep in mind, at the end of 2014, all through 2015, oil prices crashed from $100 a barrel down to $30 a barrel. what did wall street do? they extended the credit to the oil patch. down another five years. so those five years are up. so between 2020 and 2022, you
have 140 billion with a "b," debt that is coming due. wall street is no longer in the mood to extend that slack. they want to see the money. you're going to see a major contraction in this industry over the next few years. you're seeing a pullback on cay ex. there will be a -- cap ex. there will be a number of lows in the patch. they won't be able to meet the debt obligations. you'll see a lot of blood-letting over the next two years. it will be an extremely difficult two years in the u.s. oil patch here. >> steve, it's mike murphy. do you see a point where the u.s. equities, energy equities are investable again or rebound from this long downward slope they've been on or will the price of oil need to move higher for that to happen? >> i do. for instance, we saw the sugar high on that aramco ipo, an a ipo that was 10 years too late. so the industry does recognize this. i think the industry is signaling to us that we're down
in this range, that is to say that oil, 55 to $65 range is here to stay and why oil companies, the major western oil companies no longer call themselves oil companies, they're energy companies, naturanatural gas companies, por companies. the companies on the forefront of making the transition of branding themselves away from oil toward the petrochemical industry, the power industry, those are the equities that you have to be focused on. >> for 2020, what's your forecast for oil prices? >> right now, through the end of the year, our models are showing one, five% chanc five percent ct we'll -- oil is range bound between the mid-to low 50s, to the mid to low -- low to mid-60s. a very normalized trading range through you 2020, assuming we remain out of recession. maria: we will leave it there.

united arab emirates to listen in on conversations, tracking locations and social connections. it was mostly used in the uae. numerous americans have used it. check this out. a delivery man in florida caught on camera stealing a package he just delivered. police are looking for the suspect who works for a third party delivery service. you can see the man snapping a picture to prove that he did drop the item off. but then snatches it back. all this happened thursday in a town about 35 miles south of orlando. reports of porch pirates soared as the holidays move closer. now the delivery man is the thief. americans digging deep into their wallets over the weekend for last minute shopping. experts say we likely spent more than $34 billion on saturday and sunday, that tops black friday by $2.5 billion. consumers are under the gun this year with six fewer shopping days between thanksgiving and christmas. so every store was packed.
every store over the weekend. fortunately, i can say i'm all done. what about you guys. maria: no, i'm not. i'm going to start today. >> you're starting today. maria: i'm only kidding. >> not much time left in just joking. i have some things to do, a lot of things. it did sneak up on us, didn't it. >> it did. maria: six fewer days. right, lauren, six fewer days. >> yes, there's a lot to get done. maria: thank you, lauren simonetti. congress is in recess, they're at home, getting ready for the holidays. the impeachment battle is raging on. house speaker nancy pelosi still has not sent the articles of impeachment to the senate so that a trial can begin. just to be clear, under president clinton, when clinton was impeached the articles went immediately, later that day. kevin mccarthy joined me yesterday on sunday morning futures to talk about how president trump and his republican allies should mount their defense. watch. i know there are going of to be house managers named. who do you think that is on the
democrats' side and who will it be on the president's side, who would you recommend to the president to help represent his side once the trial does start in the senate? >> i would go to john ratcliffe, former u.s. attorney that's done an amazing job. i'd go to jim jordan, doug collins. these are individuals that i would pull in if i was in the white house because we have been at this -- remember, the democrats have been trying to impeach the president for two and-a-half years. changing whatever they could find every step of the way, from the mueller report to trying to quid pro quo to extortion to bribery to what they came up today with articles that reach nowhere, no facts. through all those battles, you want people that have been through this, understand it and have been in the hearings, even when they were in the basement. maria: he made news there, saying the three people he's recommending that the president use to represent him in this trial and that as you heard was congressman john ratcliffe, congressman jim jordan and doug collins who is the ranking member of judiciary.
joining us right now is the former new york congresswoman, claudia tenney. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. maria: you are living proof of what's going on in terms of those districts where president trump won but you've got democrats trying to win in november. tell us how you see it, claudia, in the midst of this impeachment battle. >> yeah, last year was a tough year. i served in the 115th congress, one of the most successful congresses in decades. tax reform is working in upstate new york. it was terrific for our district. last year there was a dark cloud hanging over my district. a that was the mueller report which has now been pretty much debunked and we've seen a turn of events. now you see this shampeachment as a i've heard it called. nancy pelosi, this was a clear and present danger, imminent threat that the president posed, you heard this from the democrats and all of a sudden they get the impeachment vote
and now we're waiting, waiting for what? my opponent who narrowly defeated me next year in a trump district, actually the number one trump district held by a freshman democrat right now, he voted for impeachment. both articles of impeachment. and my community is outraged. i've been out every day throughout the community and they're very upset about the impeachment of this president and you just read before i came on, if anyone is watching, before i turned on, it is the economy is just booming and even lagging in upstate new york but doing better than we were doing thanks to the policies of the 115th congress, the president and his leadership. and people are worried. they do not want to see a return to what we had before and a decline. maria: i want to get your take in a second about what the response is to the democrats wantwanting to bring back the st deduction. that really impacted your community. you mentioned the mueller report. now we've got the inspector general's report on the origins of the russia probe, the conduct
of the fbi. senator lindsey graham joined me yesterday, saying he wants to see accountability as we all do. watch this. now we know from the ig report that in fact the dossier was a, quote, essential part of the wiretap warrant that they got, the warrant to wir wiretap an innocent person, carter page. what's your reaction to that? the former fbi director, he spent 40 plus million dollars on this mueller probe. shouldn't he had known that? >> the horowitz report is the first step in a long journey regarding sa fisa abuse. the fisa court rebuked the fbi. they came down hard on the fbi. they had failed to do that, i would have lost all confidence in the court. comey said last week he was sorry. it was sloppy, no. comey, it wasn't sloppy, it was criminal. i'm going to call every person who signed the warrant
application. we're going to pass laws to make sure it never happens again. accountability will only be successful if somebody gets fired. i'm looking at christopher wray to fire somebody at the fbi and somebody needs to go to jail and i'm looking at durham to hold people criminally accountable for the laws this broke. maria: yeah, like one law that they broke, claudia, was the fact that that fbi lawyer doctored a document that was going to the fisa court. ted cruz explained it so well yesterday when he joined me yesterday. we're going to run that sound later. but your reaction lindsey graham? >> i agree. i think my community wants to say -- people say when will somebody be held accountable. what's going to happen to john brennan, clapper, numerous others. bring your attention to another thing i thought was interesting is congressman devin nunes, a frequent guest on your show and terrific member of congress, he raised this issue with the fisa court long ago that some of these documents being presented
to the fisa court should have been brought to their attention and they should have done something about it. they seek lax now, slow to come out and call i out. my community wants to see people prosecuted. my son's serving in the marine corps. could you imagine if someone in the military committed these kind of offenses. look at these are the most powerful government agencies whether it's the fbi, the cia, we cannot have this. if the democrats keep saying no one is above the law, look at these people who appear to be above the law. maria: you're right. they keep saying above the law. so far, everybody's been above the law with this story. >> it's fascinateing. >> that's the catch phrase everywhere. no one is above the law except for the cia, except for the fbi, except for these people -- maria: spot on, claudia. >> despite their best efforts, constant peppering of impeachment trials, talks, media coverage, impeachment support has fallen. i think it's fascinating going
into this election, so many people talk about the suburban women, they ended up being the problem for republicans in the midterms. how do you see this playing out with the suburban women, just the women in your district? >> well, it's mixed review. i think a lot of women are more and a more -- more and more women are in business, more and more people are understanding it's the economy and it's what's happening. every issue is a women's issue. last night i got the endorsement of tammy bruce who is a terrific contributor, a businesswoman. people understand, some things about the president, some may not like. he's very aggressive, a counter puncher. he gets things done and makes the economy work which helps all of us. i run our family business. we're a women-owned business. we're doing much better we were before trump became president. it's because of the rollback in unnecessary regulations, it's the tax cuts, these things are
actually working. even in upstate new york, my district is fairly suburban but it's a lot of rural areas. the small business community runs our economy. most of the jobs are from our small business community. getting those tax breaks are helpful. you alluded to the salt deduction before. we soughfought to retain some ot deduction. the salt to be honest is a loophole for the very wealthy. the republicans put in a motion to recommit. what that did was reserved that salt, making sure that people that are the middle class, middle income taxpayers are the ones that are benefiting and the small businesses are helping. i know that kevin brady who was chairman of ways and means, now the ranker, mentioned that what the democrats proposed, great to take away salt to help the wealthy people but you're going to hurt the small business community with their bill. i'd like to see the small business communities continue to thrive. they create most of our jobs. that's really where our economys
grown. maria: we'll leave it there. claudia, good to see you this morning. thank you so much. quick break and then the claws are out, cats getting a visual upgrade despite bombing at the weekend box office. wait until you see this. what is do bad about this movie that people are chang are complo much. keeping of promises for new year's isn't so easy. >> new year's resolution. >> quit smoking. >> keep new year's resolutions.

maria: new year's resolutions often include diet et and exercise. at the start of this year, one in ten americans vow to lose weight. many admit to falling off the wagon before the end of january, it could be time for a new approach. a new book offers just that, sharing cutting edge science between long-term weight loss. joining me now is the author of how not to diet, dr. michael greger and dr. greger, it's great to have you back. thanks so much for joining us. >> glad to be here. maria: we had you on to
highlight your book, how not to die. i highly recommend, hugely recommend to my audience, how not to die is an important book. now he's got how not to diet. you talk about key ingredients needed to lose weight. i'm all ears. >> with so much nutritional noise and nonsense, i wanted an evidence base die oath book. diet book. i look at every tip proven to accelerate the loss of body fat and build the ultimate weight loss solution. maria: is it a whole food, plant diet. in your book you talk about sticking to foods like that in terms of living longer. is that what we're talking about or is it something different? >> it turns out that the healthiest diet is also the best diet for weight loss. permanent weight loss requires permanent dietary change. you want this to lead to a long
life. the single best diet may be the safest, cheapest way to eat for the longest, healthiest life. maria: how do you lose weight in a safe way over the long term. >> it's not only safe, sustainable, nutritious and healthy. the optimal weight loss diet should be anti-inflammatory, free from chemicals, full of fiber rich foods, real foods that grow out of the ground and diet centered around whole plant food. maria: avoid meat? >> it doesn't matter on birthdays, special occasions, on a day-to-day basis, we should center our plate around the healthiest foods. >> the healthiest foods are -- what should we be eating? what does it look like? >> fruit. maria: the total u.s. weight loss market grew about 4.1% in
2018, from $69.8 billion to $72.7 billion according to market data enterprises, this doesn't necessarily encompass the foods that you say are a must to eat. we want to hear your list. >> the healthiest foods are fruits, vegetables, whole grains, almost egumc -- legumes, real food that grows out of the ground, from fields, not factories, those are the healthiest choice. >> no hormones, all organic? >> not necessarily organic. if half of americans ate a single more serving of fruits or vegetables a day it would prevent 20,000 cases of cancer a year. pesticides, the added burden would cause 10 cancer cas cases. this gives us the sense of the tremendous benefit of fruits and vegetables versus the tiny bump in risk. choose organic, that's great.
we should never let fear of pesticides prevent us from stuffing our face with as many fruits and vegetables as possible. maria: it doesn't matter how much you exercise, you're not able to reverse the impact of poor eating, is that right? >> you can't outrun a bad diet. a typical moderately obese person, moderately intensely exercising, could go through 30r something. exercising. whereas typical kind of processed snack foods are consumed at about 70 calories per minute so. if a few minutes you can wipe out an hour of exercise. we have most control over the calories inside the equation versus calories out. maria: we know this stuff. but for some reason we don't all practice it regularly. this is really good advice, dr. michael greger, thank you. check out the book, how not to diet. coming up, rapper 50-cent gives his son an entire store for the holidays. that story is next.

there's still stores, they're smaller. but clearly bricks and mortar, the world has changed. maria: it sure has. but when a kid is in a toy store, it's like christmas every day. >> it's the experience. that's what they have to keep going to get kids in there. more people are shopping on amazon. there are fewer people to keep out of the store. maria: if you had your five kids in there, what do you think -- >> i would bring brook, six of them. maria: six kids. >> yeah. maria: cats is getting a face lift. theaters are getting an updated version of the fill. film. days after the film opened to terrible reviews. it remains to be seen if the upgrade will help the box office. the movie took in $6.5 million over the weekend. anybody see it? >> no. >> no. >> seems to me, you can put lipstick on a cat, but it's still going to be cats. comp on. >> it was a great broadway show. i think today with all the options we have, between streaming and netflix and disney plus and the movies, i don't know who would go see cats. >> despite a great cast.

of persuasion lee carter is here and krerks oh and managing partner of rose cliff mike murphy great to see you everybody. great to be here. here we are kicking off holiday shortening week and take in term of earning economic growth what are metric that you'ring loo at what kind of a 2020 to you expect in >> more positive of the my is strong we're looking for 2% gdp or better which would be a surprise is. there's invest confidence and consumer america first is still the theme we think for 2020. so as investor think to diversify outside the u.s., you know u.s. economy is just growing stronger and better than anywhere else. and we have some of the most innovative companies in the country that leads to good investing so i thinking it is another good year. >> earnings you think it will stay. one is fourth quarter will be a slight dip but year over year 2020 is going to show 80 up. >> as it relates to economy as well given our top story this hour is impeachment stand still
house speaker abruptly halting any impeach. proceedings until next year. house democrats have now left for christmas break without sending articles to senate. democratses are blaming the delay on the the need for fairness. demanding more clarity on rules for a senate is trial but what is house have to do with the senate proceedings joining us right now is ohioing congressman member of the intel and house weigh withs and means committee a pleasure to see you thanks so much for joining us. prvelg my pleasure, my pleasure. thank you. >> you've been watching all of this and participating many this from the the front row what are youring thoughts on nancy pelosi saying well wait a second we want, we want assurance that the the senate trial will be fair before i pass on article of impeachment. well i think it has almost laughable at this point, i mean, what had we've been through in last three years we know there was impeachment at some point but they needed to find a reason and through this process there was no crime. no impeachable offense not one witness said that there was.
and here we are now trying to tell the senate how they should run their shop. and try to make it farewell now she knows what it is like to be in miter in something like this but i love when had mitch mcconnell had to say you have no lerchl because something we don't want anyway so i really don't know how they extend to play this when time come when is we're back in session. if they're going to send it send it if not there's no impeachment to begin with. >> yeah. i mean what had does that mean, though, if she's sitting on impeachment articles before sending them over, is it just is like -- to keep president trump on his toes to just make perve think we don't know where this is going or get more days to talk about the narrative? yeah. maybe that's just it because, i mean, bottom line is she wanted to have for her base the notion that we impeach the president so now they can save voted to impeach the president. and that may be all they end up with because from what had i understood it doesn't go it has
not impeachment. so maybe she does want to hold it on of some kind of leverage against president but you think he's win on this longer she carries this on the the better. this is great that it coincides with the i.g. report because i.g. report is revealing even more than than what republican knew during russia collusion investigation that adam schiff conveniently ignored and this is all coming out at the same time. adam schiff goes on chris wallace says well i didn't know that was going on. the heck he didn't we talk about about this countless time in the. intelligence committee as we threw devin miewn who paid for the dossier, et cetera, et cetera all of that was discussed in the intelligence committee, the abuse in the fisa court was discuss with adam schiff now a nerve to say i wasn't aware of it at the time but he had full knowledge for a long time. >> i think it is pretty good
extraordinary then ranking member about of the intel committee adam schiff could say that he didn't know. i mean i knew -- you know for two years i was wog with devin and john exposing this on the air -- i knew it. how did he not know it he was ranking member look yesterday i spoke with texas senator ted cruz on sunday morning futures and you know he was talking about the most stunning part of the i.g. report and that was uncovering the fabricated evidence listen to how he details it this is fascinate. watch. >> the inspector general report details 17 specific serious misrepresentations d.o.j. and fbi made to fisa court and i'll give you most stunning example, inspector general uncovered -- a senior lawyer at the fbi fabricated evidence and here's what happened so carter page outside advisor to trump campaign he also is periodically talking to russians including some sketchy russians. and so the fbi wants to get a
wiretap on him. now, an obvious question if you have someone talking to sketchy russians is well, are they working for cia because that's a very different inference if someone is working for cia a then talking to sketchy russian and is the not surprising cia -- so the the fbi sent e-mail to cia, says hey is this guy a source for you? cia e-mails become and they say yes he's a source. the fbi assistant general counsel takeses that e-mail and he alters it and types in words so cia said yes host a source. the fbi lawyer types in, no he's not a source. unbelievable. 180 degrees exactly opposite he then sends that e-mail on to the department of justice that uses that as basis for sworn statement to fisa court to get a wiretap when they question this assistant general counsel at the fbi they said how did this e-mail change he initially denied it. he said oh i don't know how this
changed no idea and then they press him and he's like yeah okay if i changed it. that is on it face criminal conduct. >> i'm -- i'm stunned. i mean, and i knew but that's so -- egregious what the fbi lawyer did congressman. so i assume that's -- punishable by jail time but i assume also you're not going to see guy os with the low hanging fruit get in trouble for this for what they did in 2016 do you think we're going to see accountability i'm talking about jim comey peter strzok, bruce, et -- >> you've got the lineup and plenty more than just that, and john brennan is another one. that's where -- john brennan clapper comey i could go down other trio you know mccabe, strzok, page, you know pelosi schiff and knadler for that matter you could go on
and on so i hope there's accountability i think that's what durham answer i think that's what attorney general barr is after he's a no nonsense guy that's one of the most horrible thing and you're right maria you coveredded it for e three years at least it seems longer sometimes and at the same time mainstream media ignore these thing and ignored it all along and when you have eric and adam schiff going on tv for last few year, saying whatever it is they want the media they usually go to just plays right along with it. it is really people barszing. >> it has shameful. really sad day. itshameful. >> for what you have done, goes down as incredible black mark on mainstream media for ignoring actual real wrong doing and here we are talking about impeaching president trump. because of a comment he made on phone call meanwhile these guys is being ignored so president has to come up with a maroon to battle this. in the month of january, in
fact, there's a senate trial which we're expecting. kevin joined me on sunday morning futures i asked him how president trump and republican allies should kefs given the fact that we'll see adam schiff jerry knadler as house manager on democrat side watch this. >> i know that there are going to be housing manager name who will it be on president side who would you recommend to president to help represent his side? once the trial does start in the senate? >> i would go to john radcliffe former u.s. attorney done and amazing job and jim jordan and doug collins these are individuals that i would pull in if i was at white house and remember democrat have been try to impeach the president for two and a half year. changing the -- changing whatever they could find every step of the way from the mueller report, about to try to quid pro quo to extortion with article that meet nowhere.
no fact but through all of those battles you want people that have been through this and been in hear physician whefn they're in the if basement. >> so congressman let's had say hypothetically speaking we get the senate trial in january he gets acquitted. what happens then if, you know, the house impeached him does what impact his policy? does it impact his agenda in any way? tell us how you see this playing out. >> i think he just going to become stronger actually. i think he's going to go out to say look this was a farce from the beginning and let's move on with our agenda. which he's doing anyway through all of this stuff this is probably been the most happy president you could ever imagine during his own impeachment because he's getting thing done like u.s. mca economy is doing great, he just drives on. look that lineup that kevin mccarthy talked about with collins and jordan and radcliffe they're strong and like he said they know every part of this. so they will do a great job if it come to that. it is at the same time they also
e know that if it is adam schiff and knadler over there they know that very game that they have played for the last two and a half year. and can call them out on it during this process. >> we'll be watching this is something i'll tell you congressman great to see you as always thanks so much for being here. >> you bet -- and to you -- [laughter] merry christmas happy holiday. brad joining us there. coming up this morning "saturday night live" alum jog in the house on eddy murphy at the house we're breaking down rise of sky walker disappoint weepgd when it mean for disney and last minute gift ideas for krems just two day away. don't miss a moment of it. we're back in two minutes time but first christmas gifts up in flames fed pex truck crashes causing chaos for some last minute delivery everybody is okay by the way e. plus eddy murphy "saturday night live" comeback this weekend. >> so much has changed since we last spent some time together. my neighbor has have gone through so much something called

know -- one side. >> half of americans out there voted for the president. i think they want to see both sides and so much material on both sides that -- i think people can laugh at all of it and i think that it can be funny without being mean and i think that -- i also think that there's something amazing about the power of comedy. that can really impact people's perception and i think "saturday night live" knows that and they think it seriously now. because if they go too far you can really change how you view a candidate. >> nobody knows that better than joe piscopo. >> everything everything is fair game and it was great to see them just be funny because again as we just fun it was nice to see and politic. hey jerrold nadler had adam schiff you keapght make this stuff up. he's a walking with comedy bit. you have to do these thing it is hysterical. >> extraordinary look at the news that is actually reality.

[laughter] >> so cute. adorable. weekend box office woes "star wars" rather, the rise of sky walker coming in with 175 million dollars in revenue. crushing kat but a disappointment for disney nonetheless latest installment in whole franchise saw lower opening weekend number than last two films in this new trilogy. joining us right now is correspondent elizabeth wagmeister along with kevin mccarthy great to see you both thanks for joining. kevin you saw the new "star wars" movie let me kick off with you and you thought -- >> i mean for me personally i love it because it was a return
of the nostalgia feeling for me i love that feeling of being become at the movies with a large audience and everyone kind of having a fun time. and one of the fascinating things about this movie is divide between critic and audience. if you look at rotten tomatoes right now the score is 57% with less than 400 critic abouts over 86% with over 36,000 verify audience reviews so for me one thing i'm noticing here is if you love the last jedi episode 8 you didn't love this film and other way around i wasn't a fan of episode 8 but i love 9 because it return to what j.j. did for episode 7 so a film that worked in that regard but i've never seen fan comedom over a de over a massive property so an interesting couple of days sin this movie came out on friday this week. >> elizabeth you saw it what did you think? >> i have to say i agree with kevin there's a big divide
between critics and audience member theaters that i saw it audience cheering, laughing they were classifying at the end. but what i will say is this is truly only a problem that disney can have when we're saying box office slump and made worldwide, just opening weekend. but the reason why this is a disappointment is it is a low opening. the past two in the recent trilogy made a lot more. the force awakens in 2015, made about 70 million more than this opening weekend and last jedi made 40 million. what it does is raise questions of disney's future on the big screen. on streaming, of course, disney has dominated the box office this year. it is this "star wars" can be the the 7th billion dollar movie if it hit the billion mark which it will. >> unbelievable but this lackluster number that part of a bigger trend box office sales projected to fall as many consumers are happy to say only when it come to "star wars" fans seem happy to curl up next to
baby yoda and manned "mandalorian" and by the way we all have set ups now with tvs that it is like -- movie quality is this sort of a sign of things to come, kevin? >> yeah, i mean it is interesting question. the number three films are something you can't look past as elizabeth mention you have 24 l million for force awake wakens and down to 175 estimated for rise of the of sky walker i think that speaks to idea of being fatigue with "star wars." i think "star wars" up until the "mandalorian" was kind of in a weird spot. i mean solo did not do extremely well review for that film weren't extremely well as well, and i think that what's happening is we're having too much "star wars" so question to you about the idea of streaming effecting this. i think it is more of just the idea of being pa teeing in "star wars" in general "mandalorian" is is doing well but avengers
did well because it was a movie audience wanted to see so depends on kind of what fatigue is there so i think "star wars" is too fatigue at this moment. >> other question here is it is almost -- 370 million dollar with global. so a big pull here is outside the u.s. but you know what's interesting is china was only $12 million and two week ago there was a story about china putting the doors closed on foreign and that's where "the avengers" and other sagas do tremendous. so can you be successful in the business to get these billion dollar plus revenue if china is going to be more in the background? >> right well you know china was the only territory that "star wars" did not open at number one and this has actually on trend with other "star wars" film they have not performed well in china eat. but i have to say i actually do agree with -- disagree with kevin because i don't think there's "star wars"
fatigue i think when you have reviews that are this lukewarm and this mixed and you stull have 175 million dollars just domestically i think that proves that "star wars" fans come out to theaters for anything inept to see it but maria to answer your question that you pose before about the future of disney and streaming and we have tvs that are movie quality. you know this is what's interesting with disney mous they, of course, ended deal with netflix so as of 2016, all of the disney movie were with on netflix as of 2017 they pulled out of that deal it as of 2019 all of those films are now going to be exclusive to disney plus. there's still no launch date for the rise of sky walker, but it will likely be about six months from now that gives them a lot of time to perform well in the box office. >> i was saying to to my husband there'sing nothing on any of the movie channel right now. they are just and i'ming thinking to why are they not showing good movie reason is they've steered all of the good stuff to streaming so you pay extra.
you know all of the channelses that i've already paid for on my cable bundle or whatever what i have. nothing is on. it has because they put it towards streaming so you pay up for it. >> i think "star wars" to talk about it as a flop or failure is really tough because from an investment stand point for disney it has been a great investment for them and investment that will keep giving with merchandise and with theme park. but it's similar to the avengers or superhero movies they have with the fact that we're talking about it and we'll be talking about next one and next one after that. that's a franchise that's going to create a lot of money and a lot of profit for disney shareholders. >> uh-huh absolutely. you know the future even though it is unclear in the theaters because there was supposed to be a new trilogy starting in 2022 that was coming from "game of thrones" creator they dropped that we hear at variety differences they site 200 million dollar deal at netflix to kind of bring this all full circle but one thing is for
certain disney plus is cashing in on "star wars" they have multiple theory. >> real quick is kat as horrible as they say it is? >> i hate to see this a lot of hard work that goes into all of these film -- i did, it was one of the least favorite movies i've ever seen. >> you hated it? >> i hated it. i hated hated it ya. >> kechi you -- kevin you too? >> genuine nightmare. we appreciate it. elizabeth wagmeister kevin mccarthy merry christmas see you soon. coming up trump the town -- one florida man offering commander in chief a deal unlike any other. will he accept and last minute gift ideas what to get with two days left until the big day. back in a minute. okay. so, today you're going to leave your phone with a guy named flip.

so that where you were interested perhaps maybe in bordeaux looking to no tariff on italian wine. >> this one you have. this one is by wolf pack exactly. and it is, you know, it is terrific because you can drink it young you can age it it. there's lot of different entries to price point entry to the market. this one retails for $60 bottle and option at 150 so what i like it has easy going. easy to drink, can age can be consumed -- >> which white do you like? >> i like chardonnay. reason i choke chose this blanc from california and like you might see -- but now we're seeing the tariffs also on sinsar from napa the not a price increase at least in short-term that you're seeing potentially for wines in france.

other thing as we go a along here the final sign or to me orderly enough, actually, in my home county when one of the county chairmen i have 8% counties one came to me said i have to speak with you i said sure sat down he said i want to let you know that you have to vote for impeachment. i said what do you mean see that he said you've got to vote for impeachment. if you don't, you are not going to be able to run in my county first of all, it is not his county it is our county, and you are not going to be able to move forward you are not going to get the line a big deal in new jersey you are not going to be successful i first of all, i still could have run i could still could have gotten the line i fought a lot of things in my life fought hard to be where i am made me think for all years worked so hard tried to give so much not only to the party but to everybody, as things
that we've done i won't go into them but many, many infrastructure projects helping people all services try to give to people in the office boils down to one vote that i may have my own individual opinion on one vote, and that is not going to be allowed? i am going to be punished for that? that is when i knew. i had been thinking about it for a while i said, in you know speaking to my chief of staff about this, and i said to her you know there has al been in my career in over time something that happens that lets you know that it is time to make a change. and this was it it. maria: that is interesting. >> to make a change. >> you were uncomfortable with shaming, the pushback that you couldn't do what you thought was right but you had to go along with the herd we talked about this before that, you know, congress has to go back to district we've got a map of the 31 districts of what the districts that president trump
won but these people will have to get reelected, and they also have to follow their conscious yesterday this impeachment vote last week you were among the few. you and collin peterson the only two volunteered no on both articles one other voted "no" on just one article post impeachment vote, what are you feeling day what struck but the impeachment you were a no going into it you told us that a month ago. >> exactly. and how i feel today i feel good i feel i did honorable thing, i feel that i did what was right for me right for the country i heard lindsey a while before this impeachment is a weak, thin impeachment that just doesn't really mean anything much to most american people has been a long dark shadow on our country, folks are tired i really believe folks are tired of this tired of hours and hours and hours of time that has been spent on it they are tired of the
millions of dollars that have been spent on it will they want to move forward, maria, we have so many important issues and yes, we have done a few. no doubt. we are doing a few but there are so many more whether election security, whether it is better care for our veterans, whether a host of other issues and i could go through one after another medicare medicaid we can about about all should be concentrating one hundred percent time on we are there to work for american people and not to have constant political bickering to come up with weak impeachment most importantly we must understood what impeachment is it almost never happens for a reason other than declaring war it is the most serious, issue that america and action that america could ever, ever take. and har harms our country fractions us apart makes us more literally creates more civil unrest created more hurt i want to bring people together. >> i think jeff van drew is so
practical i think it is terrific but that had to be hard to switch parties the way he. >> had to have been a very, very difficult not a decision he would have been made probably easier to say i am going to become independently rather than saying i am going to become a republican you asked a question prosecutorial interesting about shame put on him more broad we need to talk employ a democrats are shimg people who support president shaming their own, when you shame people usual going to have a lot of bad reactions, not it is hillary rodham clinton she same day people saying basket full of he eshdeplorables for supporting the president that is part of their strategy to see you you are with us or against us this notion i think he rejected that at lot of people one-off, i don't think they should dismiss it i think they should learn from it this whole idea that you have to be lock and
step all the way is that is interesting way to run government o not interesting way for people to feel part of anything. >> i think not when side he came from or went to that matters i think more in washington if we have free thinkers practical people supporting people they claim to support representing the people they claim to represent, that is a positive for the whole country hopefully we can get there where it is not just one party with an shame people falling in line but people who can think freely and represent their the people. >> i think too look at some of the polling some of the numbers coming out impeachment process is making more than 70% americans trust government less. and this is being led by democrats nancy pelosi the process holding on to you know the future not really sending to senate is making it even worse, and so i think they are going to be in for a rude awakening growing through this
support is dropping after accent coverage wall-to-wall coverage drip strategy few in media questioning it i don't think it is good for democrats i recommend don't. >> part was getting the impeachment vote before the end of the year. >> bingo. >> the rank-and-file claeshl for primarily slates next year. >> remember how we began the year she had -- >> nancy pelosi going to like this state state of the union had it in for him like, want to go impeach, a certain core group of democrats want to since he started tenure, in are '17. >> not getting any facts going after accomplishing that seems kind of back up against the wall not really sure how she handles this does she go forward or sent out. >> it do you think people are
going to remember this lee vote democrats out of the majority in the house. >> would it go that far a to actually help them help republicans. >> i think it could, i think the democrats can continue to hurt themselves this year if they only focus on impeachment anti-trump messaging don't drop a platform they are in a fight for what kind of party are they going to be are in the party of elizabeth warren bernie sanders or more moderate i don't think a lot of people are paying attention i don't know impact. >> a good point a impeachment process has taken oxygen out of the rook can you talk about candidates proposals all i know new green deal medicare for all higher taxes is there anything else i needed to know with democrats are going to do. >> you can't talk economy can't a truck trade. >> they are trying to talk about economy. >> you saw joe biden say this economy isn't working middle class getting destroyed. >> the other thing that they are working on this is
