5:31 pm
good evening. it was a bad end to a bad week on wall street. the dow plunged 666 points today, or 2.5%. that is the biggest percentage drop in a year and a half. for the week, the blue chip index is off more than 4%. even with the losses, the dow is still ahead 3.25% for the year. that's how good 2018 has been so far. so what rattled the markets today? it is a question for cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger. jill, a lot of folks have been waiting to see when and if this correction might happen. what happened today? >> we had some disappointing corporate earnings. but the reality is there is a gral fear that the economy is growing faster than expected and that that could lead to higher interest rates. that was the real factor that seemed to spook the markets. you know, before the open, we had a strong january jobs report-- 200,000 positions ng wd, unemployment remains at a 17-year low. most importantly, we have an increasing wages, 2.9% from a year ago.
5:32 pm
that's the fastest pace since the recession, and that jump in wages, it could be an early warning sign that the economy is heating up, and that could lead to inflation. and, remember, to keep prices in check, the fed may have to increase interest rates more quickly than anticipated. that said, of course, both interest rates and inflation do remain quite low still. >> glor: right. so, wages up, economy ecelerating, but obviously other things going on here. somebody sees what happens today on wall street. the reaction, if you're an investor, is what? in the reaction is, if i don't need my money for five years, r m a long-term investor, i feel t eat. stick to your game plan. don't upend it. but, if you need your money within a year-- may have you have to pay a tuition bill, ntybe you've got to put a home egwn payment on a house you want to buy-- that's moment i say look, you never should have been in the market to begin with. cut the risk, get out, and don't tempt fate. >> glor: all right, good advice,
5:33 pm

behalf of and paid by the d.n.c. and clinton campaign, to the eane of about $160,000. >> transparency is the best backstop to corruption. >> reporter: house republicans described it as a breach of civil liberties. >> and to my knowledge, this is the first time in american enstory that the f.b.i. and justice department have been weaponized through the actions of a political party. >> reporter: the f.b.i. opposed the memo's release, citing "grave concerns about materiel omissions of fact," and the top democrat on the intelligence committee told reporters by phone, the f.b.i. had revealed steele's democratic ties. >> this wasn't about oversight. this was about telling a political story that's helpful to the president. it's about telling a political story that's designed to injure the work of the special counsel and to discredit it. >> reporter: the g.o.p. memo was written by aides to house intelligence chairman devin nunes, a member of the igesident's transition team. >> i have an obligation to the
