>> blake: good morning to you as well. democrats have chosen the last three nominees, obama, kerry and gore. since '76, one nominee has finished outside the top three. mccain in '08. even then he was outside the top three but just a few hundred votes. the top three on the republican side believed to be the ticket in iowa. in iowa candidates were begging, pounding, asking their supporters to get out on caucus night later tonight, turnout is the key here. that's the way those at the top feel. they feel if they can get their supporters to the polls they will certainly have a chance tonight. there's one potential x factor in all of this, after all the months, millions of dollars spent t weather, this state is supposed to get drilled by a know storm later tonight starting at just about the time the caucuses open.
here is what donald trump implores to his supporters last night. >> you've got to get out and i joke, i say if you're sick f you've got 104 temperature, i've been doing so, if your doctor said you cannot leave your bed, you won't make it, it doesn't matter, get out and caucus, get out and caucus. so you have to get there. >> blake: and looks like there's a storm, you know f there is go on and get out. one thing i cannot stress enough being here in iowa still just how many indecided voters there are speaking to a woman. how are you still undecided. she said to me i have friends that have seen a candidate eight times and they want to see him a ninth. >> maria: amazing, what a day the weather creating drama. >> blake: can you see that? >> maria: yeah. we will check back. as candidates fight for the final votes ahead of the iowa
caucus hillary clinton is dodging a tax over this morning over handling of classified emails during time of secretary. the state department is now saying that for the first time that top-secret emails were sent using clinton's private server, refusing to make those public because of information contained. yesterday morning, rather, here is what he said about it. >> you know, there's no one left to lie to in the case about no, there were no classified documents. yes, there was classified material. even the president who said he learned about it on do -- on the news seems to not have an answer about 18 of these communications were back and forth with him. >> maria: joining us former prosecutorrer, law professor john, john, good to see you. >> good morning, maria. >> maria: what's your take on this in. >> it's all going to come back what's in the emails that are
redacted, so you really can't see them. in the letter of the law it doesn't say that you have the transfer top-secret information. in practice, you usually don't see a prosecution unless someone knowingly transfers or mishandles information which on its face is top secret. once content comes up we will know better such as identity of intelligence agency, agent in one of the emails. >> they're not going to release that. 22 emails will not be released to the public. we will never know what's in those emails. that's the point. >> we my know not the identity but the fbi certainly knows. they're going only to move forward if the e-mail has anything on its face is top secret. in reality a lot of the documents never have any classificoccasion on them until after the fact, if something is blatantly top secret on its face
-- >> david: she's the secretary of state, everything is top secret, her menu, when she picks up her laundry. everything that comes to her is top secret. you get that training when you're a member of congress, whether you're a member of the state department, whether you're the secretary of state or some low-level at the secretary's office. the fact that she was has continuously denied and blamed as was said earlier, i think is real, i think it's relevant and dramatically affecting the outcome of this election, the thing that she's losing to a socialist is unbelievable. >> maria: so you think that's the reason? >> scott: absolutely. >> in any of the cases where the person in possession of the information, it was those cases where the information was blatant obvious top secret. absolutely. no doubt. >> maria: it feels like you're
not including the latest information. the latest information is that there's 22 emails that the state department says they cannot release to the public. >> no disagreement, but my point is some of these documents get classification after they're read. >> there's an issue here, however, there are documented cases of soldiers being prosecuted for accidentally having information. u.s. code states that is having the information, her lawyer had to drive in and say which was unsecured contrary to say pertrelluis. soldiers that have been prosecuted for accidentally bringing something home, shipped home after they're wounded. also when it comes to the sap programs, for instance f that plays out to be true -- >> maria: special access programs. >> david: special access programs. whether she strips it away or someone strips ahead the header, the information is the same.
to the senator's comments, yes, you are trained, it's about a six-month process. you are read into these programs. you use code word and there's no way that the political narrative outweigh what is the law says which is possession not markings. >> no disagreement. i don't think the fbi moves forward -- >> david: the law doesn't state blatantly top secret. it's classified information. >> dagen: file criminal charges against presidential candidates, has that ever happened in history? what's the likelihood of that happening? you have to have the guts to take that step against a fellow democrat? >> maria: the fbi would like to
indict hillary and aid. >> they may very well. i'm not defending hillary. agencies have employers all of the time who are being reprimanded for mishandling information. in this case to move forward, fbi is going to have to have something blatantly and they may have something, but i think that's what's going to be required to move forward. >> david: ihi yu i a ryoo pnt onllary clinton or huma, anywhere that reach it is state department, you will see an investigation carried out. there may be an employee that doesn't want to go to jail or take the fault, that may roll on this and this is how investigations play out. could be that hillary clinton says, i'm not taking the bullet for you. >> maria: the one thing that keeps coming out is the focus on jim comey head of fbi.
anyone who brings up jim says the same thing, a man of integrity, he will do the right thing. >> scott: we will soon find out. >> maria: the whole political pressure is there. do you want to indict? do you want to push forward in the middle of a political election. >> scott: interview hillary clinton, that's the next step. >> the safest route for the obama administration and democrats is for a prosecution to move forward. if there's no prosecution, there's going to be lingering questions that she got favorable treatment and history show that is the sitting administration or party that has someone who does not get prosecuted actually suffers later on. >> maria: and then you've got the fbi in question. >> that's right. >> maria: so we will see how it plays out. john, thank you. don't nice complete coverage of iowa caucus with niel cavuto. he is live this morning all day and tonight from iowa.

brown, the stock has been cut more than half. >> but that being said, can we just go to boca rajon makes isis and al-qaeda look like little kids. >> maria: really? >> terrorist organization, she choose not to. it took john kerry of all people -- >> maria: why would she not deem them terrorists? >> scott: here you have the number one terrorist organization that's kill it had most people in this world right now and they're finally obviously being recognized by john kerry of all people. that's another area when you talk about hillary clinton and foreign policy and failures. this is the number one failure, i believe. >> david: there are questions of the clinton foundation. there's also a great deal of
corruption with good luck jonathan and other officials in those countries in nigeria, boko haram acquired territory and they continue to expand. what's in danger now is what happens with africa merge, you have isis operating in southern libya, biggest tragedy on the globe is the loss of africa. 30 something out of 56 countries in disarray. radical islam. it's a failure. >> cheryl: where has the administration been? everyone was making this big push to save our girls, remember that, that was michelle obama, where have we been on the story? >> scott: same place. we are in the backseat.
we are not leading. a hash-tag is going to scare these guys, really. >> maria: terrorists as well as the connection to the foundation has not really come out. >> scott: sounds like an issue for you to investigate, maria. >> david: a business side if i could, please. >> maria: yes. >> david: could be benefit to residents and to the globe. this is, i again, one of the greatest economically, socially. >> maria: we will take a short break. what is zero ipo january means to the market, keep it right

of oil-producing nations. even in the place of saudi arabia their bank stocks are hitting the lowest we've seen in a decade. low oil having impact in a negative way. >> maria: sure, nigeria, africa, largest economy, david was speaking about economy. >> dagen: the reasons that people are buying it just get shot down. opec came down and said we are not in talks about production cuts despite russia and saudi arabia. so, there's still a glut, they don't want to remove production and then you have the worry that demand could start falling. you want to talk about 20-dollar
oil. that's where you go if demand starts drying up. >> maria: oil stays around these levels. >> scott: we were talking about 2-$3 a barrel. what's the end game? they need to be stable in the region specially now with iran getting $150 billion. they don't want to be the leader and say to opec, by the way, we have to get our act together and slow down a little bit, get some stability. what's the end game? they're not participating at all. >> david: not only are they not participating, opec has been a cartel and can't control world affairs. it's not one or the other and we need to look at the total picture of what's happening. europe -- >> maria: oil is a global market.

a month is sort of the tale of two months. the correction in the first couple weeks with a 6% pop in the last seven trading days. the thing that has occurred, the ecb wednesday before last very accommodated. our central banks seem to back away from this for hikes over the year in japan with the negative interest rates on friday morning. suddenly the market thinks there is a little bit of a central bank put in place again and a little bit more confidence. from an economic standpoint boy still got challenges out there. maria: what is that say that it's all about the central bank again. the federal reserve inc. of japan, no fundamental backdrop. no fundamental economic that shows things are better. just more monetary policy. >> friday we flash for the quarter gdp. that is terrible. we should be growing to 4% to 5%
in the economic cycle. so our view of what is going on, we will be bumping along at 1% the next couple quarters. investors are legitimately concerned the economy is a lot slower than it should be. >> my question is can the banks, to various point, continue whether it is the ecb or the fed ,-com,-com ma can i prop up and the economy and talk about china manufacturing going down in part because consumer participation drops in their markets. the product is obviously less. the banks can master client for so long. maria: this is effectively my question. you're exactly right. >> what he told the average investor looking at the 401(k). getting through all the high-end stuff, would he tell the person on the treadmill right now, whether they do. >> our view is that we were going to be in for a little bit of a rocky road.
we thought we would have some support levels lower. as i said, we dropped 11% in the first three weeks or so. i don't know that we are completely out of the woods yet. we are hoping for better economic news based upon developments. obviously we've got a couple tough quarters to get through before we see some stronger march of nine economic growth. dagen: what about the impact of it being an election year and the possibility of the democratic nominee who is a socialist i want to take the top tax rate. it's not 90%. it will be about 54.2%. tax capital gains and dividends for wealthier people as income regardless to how long you hold the stock. certainly it would make people nervous at home. what about how they act with money in the market? >> as we sit down to what's going on in the market and what has investors concerned, everyone is talking about china and oil prices and one of the
six things we're focused on is the election for this reason. but economic growth limping along at half-price, the fiscal policy approaches of the various candidates are critically important. starting today with iowa and working our way through the year, and voters and investors will be interested in what the candidate senator shane from the standpoint. i am not a fan of a senator sanders is talking about from a fiscal policy standpoint. that is for voters to decide. maria: did anything change since the bank of japan went negative? i seem to be a catalyst for market. does that show anything different? >> you have the 6% balance over the last seven trading days. we had a 2.5% move in the u.s. here. what happened with china -- i'm sorry, with japan is that was the third major developed economy or central bank that
made a positive supporting statement. the ecb a couple weeks ago, the fed the middle of the week in japan. from the days we've now got a central bank if you will. we need better fiscal policies to coordinate with the monetary policy and we made better activity within the economy based upon what individual consumers and corporations are going. >> we are not out of the woods yet. you feel like over the short-term the central bank action is positive. >> it is certainly supported. we may see a retest lower and we are advising our clients to be cautious and we were better opportunity to put the chips back in the table. >> how about the ipo market? that is something you need for the market to move higher. again, there were no ipos in the month of january.

layoffs with a lot of brick-and-mortar retail companies. our model for this friday's low content is. consensus in the 190 neighborhood. they filter into the economy. it was circuiting poor labor data, one of the economy will create some additional concerns for investors as well. >> 185 is what i was looking not for the number in terms of jobs created. so good to see you. sailor lando joining us. space-bar change in its policy on the role of guns. >> good morning, maria. facebook updating policies banning the private sale of guns on it i do not answer graham. the company says it will have systems in place to detect gun sales to buy since will be able

people to show up and caucus to mermaid, you will have voted 10 times. >> there is one potential x factor and that is the weather because a major storm of six vector to roll through iowa. at some point later tonight and into tomorrow. tomorrow is the worry. you have to question the psyche and whether or not i could have an impact. after months of campaigning, that the dollars spent is certainly one more thing to keep an eye on as we head into caucus night. just hours away. maria: hillary clinton earlier said the storm is not coming until mid-night. reporter: i was excited. is she a meteorologist? how does she know? maria: david, you've got the news on the weather. >> the new weather girl for the democratic primary. she says that not coming till
midnight. ago a mouse has no in the meeting. she is selling sunshine. dagen: at his weather person. it is not weather girl. maria: that is a whole another topic. thank you very much. we are noticing everything this morning he thank you, blake burman. skinner scott brown. questioning truthfulness. >> politics is a blood sport. if you don't like it, get out what it's referring to that he is the most conservative. not every iowa caucus goer number one. not every voter in new hampshire are conservatives. it kind of falls on ears.
maria: i like how marco rubio said it in the debate. he said everybody is a rino. >> that is their thing. i don't put too much stock into it. maria: when you were running and you were in iowa come explain what it feels like why this is so important. >> i can tell you in iowa and new hampshire they go after the hard cores taken amendment pro-life conservative group. there are other voters out there. you have carson, cruz, rubio splitting and huckabee splitting the conservative vote in a lot of these areas and therefore adalat somebody like chris d., jeb bush and potentially marco rubio, donald trump especially to come out on top. >> here's a question. you've got a modified primary in new hampshire that makes a difference. the independents can blame new hampshire versus a caucus where
you got to go in a room and hopefully if you have dagen mcdowell in the room to convince you to vote. but really, there's a difference in the voting. the peer pressure is very important. and new hampshire the republicans play and in the republican primary. that is why bernie sanders will win with the republicans and the hard-core left democrats. >> is nothing budding about them. did you see the bernie sanders fund raising numbers? 33.6 million in the final quarter 2015. 20 million in january alone. a record number of donors. 1.3 million people made 3.25 million donations. bernie sanders. maria: there you go. will prevent cruz campaign and congressman steve king.
good to see you. thank you for joining us to >> thanks for having me this morning. true to what is the sales pitch? why is ted cruz the right person for iowa? >> i am a full spectrum constitutional christian conservatives. that is to the caucus goers are. at least two thirds, probably more than that. we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put on the springboard to launch to new hampshire and individual that matches the description has been in the foxhole with me every time and stepped up and then a courageous fighter to defend the constitution and innocent unborn human life, defend marriage, religious liberty to keep and bear arms. that is a fiscal conservative that will bring us the argument from the white house to bring forth and pass a balanced budget amendment or constitution to get our fiscal house in order and a strong national defense to defeat isis and any other caliphate around the world.
that is just a short list of all the things i think are great about this. repealing obamacare, securing our borders of the two most things that work done. ted cruz has always been a strong win both of those two. >> congressman, good to see you again. we talk often and i ask you some hard questions. my question, ted cruz gets people out to the caucuses and now they have to deliver and convince their supporters. this is not an easy task. how does his supporters get it done into the endorsements really matter when it comes to it? >> the endorsements have mattered as people make decisions moving up to us the day. now that we are on caucus day, the ground game is for kicks in. you thousands and thousands of volunteers and have come into the state. it is competitive without ted
cruz. on top of that, if you look at trumps numbers, he is sitting there by the polls. when you look at those as a second choice, only 6%. ted cruz wins the competition on this and my message to the people who have supported people like anne carson, rick santorum, mike huckabee's and others and also marco rubio, your choice is to come vote for cruz. send a thank you card. >> we appreciate them. >> the governor has come out. is there a ground game against them in the caucuses? >> there has been a ground game on ethanol since last summer. it grabbed him fall into cruz
bustamante. i don't know how much impact it has. it does make a difference and i know people bring that up in the polling. don't fall for cruz because he's not good for ethanol. i spent my life working in that industry and i've had the full support and to put together an ethanol policies are better than any other candidate's policy in the long term over his tenure window. we will be built in ethanol plants. i say to the governor, open your ears, have a cup of coffee and run the tape of this conversation. >> or is it her life group run in an attic in donald trump. how much is that her 10 or helped other candidates who have been lifelong supporters of basically the right to have a life? >> well, i haven't seen the ad or heard much about it.
i was a there's a lot of concern and trepidation about mitt romney coming to the pro-life position later in life. donald trump has been essentially caress of late pro-choice when he had said he is a strong supporter of pro-choice and he will accept the idea of partial birth abortion and accept the idea of gay marriage. the longer this goes, when people go to caucus, especially the evangelicals conscience will kick in. they will think of donald trump's luster in the oval office. how can we have a country with a president who doesn't have a moral standard. they remember what bill clinton did to our moral standards in that era and they will see what president obama has done for our constitution. they are not going to push somebody who doesn't have a constitutional concept either. >> the reason they like him is because he's not like everybody. the gridlock is off the chart and because he's not like the typical politician, that is what is so attractive. >> is principled.
>> he says what is going to do and does it. >> we don't know which principal donald trump will operate off of. that is why we sleep well at night. maria: i was talking about senator cruz actually. >> thank you. absolutely. >> there are principled. the reason people go for donald trump is because he's the one that cut through the gridlock and he will not be like the others. there's been decades of gridlock and he will get in there and get it done. that is why people like him. maria: congressman, good to have in the program. thank you very much. don't forget to tune in for complete coverage of the iowa caucuses tonight. neil cavuto kicks it off at 8:00 p.m. eastern. we are live with neil in des moines so stay with us. we will be right back.

seem to be getting on track. and people looked for answers some won going to get this job done, and, i think that is really what presidential elections are all about very different than midterm in fact i think midterms far more issue driven in some ways more candidate driven sounds odd to is that i but when you have smaller electorate that is what happens at some point in this conversation especially after march 1, when so many states go, the narrative is going to get to delegate count because the delegates of the republican party on the floor of the convention choose the nominee. and so, these state contests direct delegates to act a certain way, but ultimately, it is in cleveland in july, when those delegates at any the floor are going to choose who the republican nominee is. maria: based on number of
delegates what states will you looking at cloturest? >> well, look, the first states are really important, we all know that, that is why test cases are so important you look at march 1 superyou tuesday are o er proportional going to tell about strength of campaigns to compete in multiple state type contests then march 15, in most cases a winner take all primary, and i think, and the 16th of march, we're going to have a pretty good idea of the direction of this race tonight first night as you talked about you did it correctly, it is all about who turns out. and with so many candidates, obviously they are all pushing their pockets of people to turn out. >> makes a lot of sense snow scott brown. >> i think after, reince you obviously as well i they've after iowa new hampshire you are going to see few others drop out as we move forward, in this process, you are going to as reince was staying get a
more realistic feeling about the numbers in the specific issues, the lower tier cads out of money can't compete, and the big basis, so you are going to have a shift i think in the -- you know where those folks end up. maria: reince do you agree with that that this now are in aoing down. >> not enough hard money to go around, you actually, in order to compete in new hampshire and south carolina the next state the next state next state you need a lot of cash to pay people, on the ground, and so, what i look for, tonight, or in new hampshire, south carolina, is something that you don't expect. i mean that is that is when things can change momentum moves shifts, so things that happen that you don't expect, is what you look for, out of a day like today. >> bryan good to see you again, the question is a --
the american people -- understand the difference between a contested and brokered convention education we talked before explain the difference for people. >> yeah, sure. well you know there is a lot of words to using the first word he brokered convention just doesn't happen the old days, all the delegates would run in their own states show up at a convention, and they would actually vote right then and there there was no conversations like this about iowa, and new hampshire, just went to the convention and voted, but the brokers people that votes in pocket might be the state delegation chairman of wisconsin, has 50 or she's got a votes in back pocket goes to the candidate and says hey you know, i have got there i've got that what can we get over here just doesn't happen anymore because we have rules that say you can't vote in a bloc like that, so, the real the correct order contested or open convention just means that a candidate is going to
the convention, without the majority of delegates already committed to them. and if that happens then that is when you get to a contested or open convention, about it you never have a situation where you have a brokered convention. so highly ununlikely that is distinction. >> do you feel at this point on republican side, have been able to are aticulate policies to american people the debate seven, have they had the opportunity to be heard on the important issues that are key for america? >> yeah, i think so, maria look we have got 24-hour news, you've got a great program, people can go anywhere to get information on internet, and, you know, through the radio all over the place clearly this is a process that is a long process, there is plenty of time and people have test cases, where if people can't get out to the entire country they can get to new hampshire
and iowa, and make their case and -- talk to people, so this is a great american way, and so, about those what happens tonight is really important in that process we're looking forward to getting this thing started. debates great plenty of them, and we're really satisfied with request where we are at so far in the process. dagen: does it make you nervous with more than seven years with president obama in the white house, lackluster economy slowest recovery since world war ii, wages not growing, however, people may be don't want more of that they want to go -- even to left look at record number of people that have given to bernie sanders, they look at -- obama administration is saying hey he wasn't liberal enough i want more government higher taxes i want you wi-- un sam to take care might have life doesn't that worry you -- >> sure free sounds great except when people realize how
it gets paid for it worries us, and you look at hillary clinton, you know, we have not talked about this, but it just really does tell you a pretty good story about what is happening with her, i mean the fact that you have a former first lady senator -- of state losing to this gadfly from vermont not even a democrat in iowa tied in new hampshire, it tells you a lot about her situation. and her e-mails you talked about that, you know does hero she death indicted a grows negligence charge non knows order part about this not just this but for misunderstaonths p that the democrats are going to have a more unsettled primary in 60 days than the republicans. who would have thoot. >> you are right. >> six months ago but here we are. maria: yeah, it is true, there is a lot of uncertainty there. >> they are adding -- they are adding three debates now.
>> now they are adding them yeah. >> because it is not -- >> note working out to, tells us you a lot adding debates in march of and april and may? >> because they have been like debates doing on saturday night. >> playoff season -- >> yeah. >> absolutely, and it tells you when you see these polls, you annoy hillary should be acting like incumbent. and she is behind most of our candidates already. that is pretty bad for her she's going focus a tough sell to the american people when people don't trust you like you that is a bad place to be. maria: reince good to have you on program thanks so much for spending the time. >> thank you. >> we see you soon reince priebus don't miscomplete coverage ofive away caucuses with neil cavuto 8:00 pm eastern on fox business network emergency meeting being called concerns over the spread of the zika virus details, tonight the tonight

>> welcome back. hillary clinton's e-mail scandal back front and center as voting in iowa kicks off tonight. the state department says it has 22 e-mails sent or received to the former secretary of state's private computer service that are now deemed top secret. i spoke with former house oversight committee chairman darrell issa on this morning futures about the scandal. >> i don't want it made public. the information that's sensitive, i want the intelligence committee to see it. but i don't want to see it go public.
that's what she's responsible for. when you fill their head with highly sensitive information, they're not living up to the documents, top secrets, required not to put them in a book and not take them with them when they leave government. maria: joining us now is former hillary clinton campaign strategist, mark, thanks for joining us. >> thank you. maria: how damaging is the latest revelation that the state department won't release the e-mails because they're too top secret? >> we don't really know how damaging it is or not because we don't know whether there is an investigation, how deep it is, the truth of the matter is, this is not a primary issue. she has an over 80% favorable in iowa. bernie sanders took it off the table. this may or may not be a general election issue. it's played out in some of the general election numbers, but it's not a primary issue and i don't think you're going to see it have any effect in iowa.
maria: here is david webb, go ahead. >> you know, mark, i've just got to get past the election. let's put the election aside for a moment and talk about the security. if, as other intelligence officials and high administration officials have talked about it former that we have been penetrated at high levels, the likelihood of penetrating hillary clinton's servers, we will never see the e-mails nor should we, but if those 22 e-mails can't be released, what about the security of the country? >> well, i think this is really a political issue. >> no, i'm talking about a process in security, not political. forget the election for a moment that it exists. let's talk about the security, penetration and the penetration of the server that's potentially there, as well as-- >> that's what the issue is about, right, mark? >> that's something experts are going to have to look at. i think the voters are going to say, hillary clinton has had a long history and experience served as secretary of state, was--
>> i asked you about security with all due respect. with all due respect. hang on, mark. if any administration official exclusively used their server, their private server, chinese have penetrated, russians penetrated, iran, syria, criminal actors have penetrated our government systems and she has a private server, is this not a security issue? and e-mails on her server cannot be released because they are that sensitive? >> look, i think it's speculative who penetrated what. i think there's a professional investigation looking into what those issues are. i think eventually those will be made public and the public will make the judgment on that. maria: the judgment really is, mark, doesn't this episode reveal something about what a clinton presidency would look like? i mean, the fact that she had this private server in her house, mark, and she has all of
these e-mails sent and received, many of which were so important and top secret, doesn't this tell us or sort of suggest what a clinton presidency would look like? >> look, the fact that her and her aides initiated a process that resulted in a deal that may stop iran from having a nuclear weapon also reveals something about what a clinton presidency might reveal. everything has to be-- >> everything has to be put in perspective. and that's what the political process is about. >> can i put this in perspective, mark? hillary clinton, sorry, hillary clinton and aides strip off classified and send her the e-mail. you want perspective, do you want a candidate or president who decides i'm going to have it stripped out so i can use it on an unsecured server. that was something that was about public information, but the real question here on the e-mails, i think has yet to be
fully vetted and come out. in terms of what's happening in iowa or what we're seeing, the voters are saying, you know what? this isn't an issue for me as a democrat. this is something that the fbi is looking at. there's going to be a conclusion about it and when there is a conclusion about it, maybe it will turn out to be awes serious as some people think, maybe it won't be. maria: that's a fair point. >> we have to wait for that. maria: that's definitely a fair point. there were e-mails between you and hillary revealed in the release, right, over president obama hot mic comment with former russian president medvedev. what was the feeling when he said look, he whispered to medvedev, look, i'm going to have more flexibility after the election, right? >> i think at that time that the feeling was that president obama, i think, dependent always make the wisest comments and i felt free to say so or not. and i think i was pretty surprised actually through this whole process that personal
e-mails, frankly, would get mixed in and revealed. maria: you made the e-mail dump mark, you've got to feel good about that. >> here is senator scott brown. >> i don't disagree at all with your analysis that the democratic voters in iowa and even in new hampshire don't care about what's happening with the e-mails because in iowa especially she does have a large turnout. then why-- are you shocked, as i think many people are, that you have a socialist in bernie sanders who basically is not even a democrat who is actually potentially going to win iowa and new hampshire? what are your thoughts on that? >> well, look, i think sanders has run a strong race. i think iowa voters have typically been voters who go for an outsider candidate. i think as we come down to the end of the race here, i think she is looking like she has a slight edge. she's winning nationally overall, i think, with democratic voters.
this is going to be a big decision. >> what are your thoughts on new hampshire? >> he was the vermont senator. he has run a strong race and funding base. she's coming out with the edge here and she's got the ability to run the table after these two states. and i think we'll see. if he pulls an upset after tomorrow, he's going to have a little momentum. if she comes through here and i think last night's-- i think the saturday night polls in the des moines register gives her a little bit of an edge going into the iowa caucus today. >> mark, hey, mark, it's dagen mcdowell. in that e-mail that maria was referencing, the beginning of it was this could be the stupidest thing he ever said by a president and even considered resigning, in a response. but to that point, you had president obama who is at least warming up to hillary clinton in the comments he made in that interu he did with politico. does that necessarily benefit her? >> well, yes, i think right now
in the primary, i think democratic voters are aligned with hillary, they're aligned with obama. democratic voters like bernie sanders, they like hillary, they like obama, they like the direction the parties is taking then. >> republican voters in contrast are divided, uncertain about the party and give a 13% rating to congress, they don't like their leadership, they're backing an outsider, they don't know what to do. i think there's a huge contrast between the parties and the leadership of each party right now. >> yeah. >> which i think why the democrats are well-positioned to come out of their primaries in good shape and right now the republicans don't know what's going to happen at all. maria: let me ask you this, mark. i was speaking to a banker the other day, what we're hearing privately about hillary she's not going to do everything she says she's going to do, 1.1 trillion dollars and tough on
the bank, and reining them in. is she doing to follow up with what she's telling voters are doing for wall street. or is she going to get in and say nothing for wall street, these of my buds? >> i think she's going to have a program in terms of wall street. i think she's going to do what she says she's going to do. the campaign policy proposals get refined and i think that's obviously always been true, but i think the taxes proposed for those over $5 million. i wouldn't be supplied if she enacted that, just as president clinton got into office and changed the system the same he said he was going to do. the first hundred day proposals, yes, i think she would take these seriously. maria: you think she's going to rein in wall street and health insurance companies held to account and control drug
prices? >> i think a lot of these things are in line with the mood of the country. remember, 73% are unhappy with the direction of the country and they want to see change here in the issues and they're unhappy with wall street, they're unhappy with drug prices. i really think that these reflect a lot of strains on public opinion that wall street and the pharmaceutical companies failed to address and they're going to have to move quickly if they want to forestall additional regulati regulations here. >> i wonder what the tax increases are going to do to small business. if you're going to squeeze the small business, they're not going to hire workers. i say we're square one with the obama economy. >> i think she's pro small business. maria: you you can say you're pro small business and then you're going to tax. >> taxing over $5 million, that's not small business.
maria: if you're raising on the highest earners, are' impacting small business. >> i think the full effects have to be seen. if she's president, i think she'll look for pro growth, but i think you're going to have to be realistic and revenues have to be raised from a democratic perspective. maria: thank you so much for weighing in, we appreciate it. always good to see you, sir. >> thank you. maria: mark penn. "mornings with maria" starts every day 6 eastern on the fox business network. before we take a break. some of the best moments you may have missed earlier in the program. >> i think everyone shows a common concern, if they have a big cyber attack, if they have a breach, it could destroy their brand. you look across the candidates both on the republican and democratic side, there hasn't been much discussion and this has to be a top issue. >> i think investors are legitimately concern that the economy is slower than it should be. maria: and cam newton is
drawing attention with his pants. look at dagen's face. dagen: i want him to wear a kilt so we can at least see the legs. >> is she a meteorologist? she's selling sunshine and you can sure have the four letters. dagen: it's weather person, not weather girl. >> pc. i've been called a control freak...
i like to think of myself as more of a control... enthusiast. mmm, a perfect 177-degrees. and that's why this road warrior rents from national. i can bypass the counter and go straight to my car. and i don't have to talk to any humans, unless i want to. and i don't. and national lets me choose any car in the aisle. control. it's so, what's the word?... sexy. go national. go like a pro.

nomination and win the general election. i think he has the -- what many conservatives are looking for, you can see the angst, the anger toward both political parties, that's why trump is doing so well, but i think when you look at ted cruz's record, his political rhetoric matches his record and he'll be able to capture the vote that the last two nominees couldn't get. maria: can he win the election, i feel like he's principled and sticks to his belief, but the other side of that argument that he doesn't have any friends in the senate. had so many arguments with people going against people in the senate, called mitch mcconnell a liar on the senate floor. can he bring people together and win the general election? >> you know, under normal circumstances i would say we need someone who is more of a -- you know, someone who makes everybody feel good, but given the state of our nation, we've seen the policies of barack obama that really has put our
nation in a tailspin both economically and culturally, we need someone who is not afraid to go against the grain. nothing happens in washington much, it never moves, it's the same. change the jerseys and run the same plays and the american people have caught onto that. that's why the outsiders have done well. you don't want somebody who is going to uproot the city and not replace it. you know that ted cruz is a constitutionalist and limit it to the boundaries of the constitution. we don't need somebody who tramples further the constitution as barack obama has done. maria: here is donald trump. dagen: abortion, and partial birth abortion, why do you think that hasn't hurt him more in terms of polling? >> i think in iowa in particular, the latest poll over the weekend with evangelicals, ted cruz is
nearly double the support among evangelicals as donald trump. i still, i think what's happening is that evangelicals, look, they're not monolithic, they're a large swath of voting population, 90 million eligible voters in the evangelical ranks and look, they're just as concerned as everybody else in this country about the economy, about security, so those issues, right now they're at the forefront, as they drill down they begin to look at those character issues. they begin to look at the faith construct. do they identify with the candidate and that's why i think that ted cruz is best positioned going forward to capture that vote as people begin to think seriously who they're going to support. maria: we've got to get in senator scott brown here. >> tony, not everybody is a conservative. what do you tell the moderate and liberal republicans, who have been life long, and ted
cruz is conservative, and i have huckabee and others fighting in new hampshire and allowing others to go in because independents are playing in new hampshire. what are your thoughts on that? >> well, that wider base wasn't enough in the last two election cycles to get a republican elected. you have to have someone who can reach further than the conservatives, i think that ted cruz is best positioned, he goes into the tea party vote, the libertarian vote and clearly has the connections with the evangelical vote. they're 50% of primary voters and a third of the general election voters. they stayed home in the last two cycles and that's why the republicans failed. you do have to go beyond that base, but you have to have that base to win. maria: tony, real quick. >> ted cruz pro growth economic policy, tony, what is it? >> well, he's talking about a flat tax, a tax that would be equal eliminating a lot of the exemptions.
we'll see how far that goes. obviously, he has to work with congress, but look, the thing that he talks about most that's beneficial from an economic standpoint is regulation. maria: yeah, absolutely. >> eliminating regulations that harness businesses and keep them from growing. maria: tony, thank you for joining us. >> have a great day. maria: tony perkins. we'll be right back. to a new . born with a hunger to fly and a passion to build something better. and what an amazing time it's been, decade after decade of innovation, inspiration and wonder. so, we say thank you america for a century of trust, for the privilege of flying higher and higher, together. ♪ you stay up. you listen. you laugh. you worry. you do whatever it takes to take care of your family. and when it's time to plan for your family's future,
