they need to stop so people start saving that money. trust me after what i heard today, powell wants the speculation to end it's just he wants you to end it i like to say there is always a bull market somewhere. find it r you on "mad money. the news with shepard smith starts now >> recession storm clouds get darker can the fed land the plane i'm shepard smith. this is the news on cnbc the biggest interest rate hike in 28 years >> the federal reserve raising the funds rate by 75 basis points >> why stocks went up on the news and what it means for the economy. >> it is essential we bring inflation down >> plus, the president's warning to big oil with gas prices at record highs the january 6th committee releases a new video is this a tour of the capitol or a reconnaissance mission why the panel wants answers even
7:01 pm
after capitol police cleared the lawmaker who led the tour. >> when visitors come, they take pictures >> primary election wins for candidates backed by the ex-president >> i would like to thank president donald trump >> now, trump responds what the results mean for the rest of the republican primaries. sizzling heat across a dozen states the stress on the power grid, and the warnings of summer blackouts. the worrying facts about self-driving cars. rating police officers, like uber drivers and aged and awkward the death of internet explorer live from cnbc, the facts, the truth, the news with shepard smith. good evening with the fate of the american economy hanging in the balance, the federal reserve today takes action like nothing in decades the stakes are enormous. on the one hand, you raise the
7:02 pm
interest rates too fast and too high and you risk steering the economy into arecession. raise them too slowly or not enough, and runaway inflation could go unchecked and still lead to a recession. you have to get it just right. today, the prescription from the fed was a rate hike of three-quarters of a percentage point, the biggest rate hike since 1994 the federal reserve chair, jay powell, spoke with reporters today. he acknowledged he was surprised that inflation continued to rise, as a result, he says he expects another large rate hike at next month's fed meeting. >> clearly, today's 75 basis point increase is an unusually large one, and i do not expect moves of this size to be common. from the perspective of today, either a 50 basis point or a 75 basis point increase seems most likely at our next meeting >> well, wall street liked that. the dow snapped a five-day losing streak, closed up more than 300 points after jumping more than 600 earlier in the day. the biggest winner, the nasdaq
7:03 pm
up 270 at the close. 2.5%, as tech stocks surged. the s&p up 55, but it's still in bear market territory. that, of course, is when an index drops at least 20% from a recent high. cnbc's senior economics correspondent steve liesman in d.c. he was at powell's news conference today did the fed make the right decision >> the important takeaway is the fed is showing it's getting very serious about fighting inflation. it's a staid institution it doesn't do something hiking three-quarters of a percentage point lightly that could mean another hike like this in july. it also means the odds of a recession are definitely going up doesn't guarantee a recession. makes it more likely, but the question you have to ask yourself is what kind of economy would this be if we kept going at 8% inflation every month?
7:04 pm
i think the fed had little choice here. >> what does this rate hike mean for people's money >> so, consumer rates are going to go up across the board. many already have. mortgage rates topping 6%. they were 3% not too long ago. auto and credit card loans, they're going it be higher making the cost of owning those things more expensive, and of course, the s&p 500 as you just said, off 20%, so that's a big hit to people's retirement and savings plans. the outlook definitely challenging, if there's a silver lining, we are starting from a very low unemployment rate and there's still going to be some momentum to the economy from the rebound we get from covid ending here, hopefully. if we can get supply chains back to where they were, some of the inflation problems over time could take care of itself, but it might be several months before we start to measure and see those improvements, shep >> thanks very much. >> president biden accusing the oil industry of profiting from the record gas prices, that from an open letter to seven of the
7:05 pm
biggest oil companies. the president wrote that historically high refinery profit margins being passed directly on to the american families are not acceptable. mr. biden added that companies must take immediate actions to increase the supply of gas, diesel, and other refined product. if not, the president warned, he is considering invoking emergency powers to boost america's oil supply this comes as we're all feeling the pain at the pump aaa reports the national average gas price is about $5 a gallon 50 cents more than last month, nearly $2 more than last year. cnbc's kayla tausche live at the white house. kayla, first, he put it on putin. now he's blaming both putin and big oil. >> shep, president biden is now asking major oil companies to explain why they haven't returned to prepandemic levels of refining and enjoying those higher margins in the process. exxonmobil for one responded to the white house saying, we have been investing through the downturn to increase refining
7:06 pm
capacity, even during the pandemic, when we lost more than $20 billion, and had to borrow more than $30 billion. overall in the united states, oil refiners are operating at about 94% capacity though the amount of oil they're capable of refining has fallen by about 1 million barrels of oil per day since the pandemic peak today, the press secretary said companies should increase gas supply at all costs for the good of american consumers. >> we see that as an important first step in making sure that the oil refineries are doing their part, again, patriotic duty, in making sure they're putting out capacity and they're not taking advantage of a war that is hurting the american public industry executives, i'm told, have privately provided some of their own tactical suggestions like the white house investing alongside companies to reopen shuttered refineries, supporting an existing oil pipeline from
7:07 pm
canada called line , and removing steel tariffs that have made drilling equipment more expensive. another political option would seemingly clash less with the president's base, like senator ron wyden, he made a proposal to tax oil companies' excess profits that he shared with the white house, and wall street banker and long' time democratic adviser robert wolfe was seen leaving the white house after having publicly advocated to suspend the 18 cent per gallon federal gas tax. all of that could come to a head before the high traffic july 4th holiday, and before president biden travels to theole rich kingdom of saudi arabia. shep >> kayla tausche live at the white house. the day before the insurrection, a republican congressman led a tour group through the capitol complex. the january 6th committee is demanding to know why. that committee releasing surveillance video of georgia representative barry loudermilk leading the hours-long tour, while the complex was closed to the public the committee's chairman says
7:08 pm
the group took photos of things that really aren't typically of interest to tourists, like security checkpoints, stairs and hallways according to the committee, this same man taking photos by a staircase recorded himself the next day marching on the capitol and making violent threats of what he was going to do to some top democrats. >> we're coming in like white on rice for pelosi, nadler, schumer. even you, aoc. we're coming to take you out we'll pull you out by your hairs. how about that, pelosi might as well make yourself another appointment. when i get done with you, you're going to need a shine up on top of that bald head. >> well, there are no indications that that unidentified man in the video stormed the capitol or committed any crimes at all on january
7:09 pm
6th. capitol police reported on monday that they did not find anything suspicious about congressman loudermilk's tour, and today, he insisted it was not for surveillance cnbc's senior congressional correspondent ylan mui now what's the explanation here, ylan >> shep, this tour has been the subject of scrutiny for weeks. in fact, georgia representative barry loudermilk initially denied he even gave a tour on that day, now he acknowledges that he did show some constituents around, but it wasn't reconnaissance. today, he accused democrats of being disengenerous and said no one has contacted him directly about testifying before the committee. >> the problem i have with them is i don't know who to trust over there, when they act this way, it tells me they're not interested in the truth. they're interested in a political narrative. why they picked on me, i don't know >> the capitol police have reviewed this video footage as well they confirmed that a group of about 12 to 15 people spent
7:10 pm
several hours within the three house office buildings, but they did not appear in any of the tunnels that lead to the capitol. in a letter, capitol police chief thomas manger stated, quote,ee do not consider any of the activities we observed as suspicious loudermilk said the man in the video is taking pictures of a golden sconce on the wall that's shaped like an eagle and of the underground train. it's also important to point out that loudermilk denounced the threats of violence against his fellow lawmakers >> i'm totally opposed and i condemn that kind of language. but no one in that group showed that type of aggression that day. >> loudermilk said he and his staff have gotten death threats as the committee publicly called on him to testify, but shep, since then, he's also secured the endorsement of former president trump for his re-election campaign >> ylan mui, thanks very much. the january 6th committee continues its public hearings tomorrow with a focus on the pressure

7:23 pm
>> car prices, they have been red hot for a long time, phil. when can we expect those numbers to level off >> i don't think it's going to happen anytime soon, shep. here's the reason why. you're looking at record high or near record high prices both new and used, and they continue to stay at this level because there's simply so much demand and not enough supply. and we see it when we go by dealerships, shep. most vehicles right now at dealerships are presold. in other words, they are built to specification they're shipped to a dealer, the paperwork is done, they're delivered to the person who ordered it gone are the days at least for now, shep, where you or i could go to a dealership and say what do you have here i want to see what selection you have, because there's very little selection right now >> no doubt. thanks so much >> in russia, cars are heading off the assembly line without emergency seat belt locks, without antilock braking systems, and without airbags the russian car company halted

extremely rare for young kids with covid, saying that should be made clear to families as they make decisions about getting the vaccine. still, they both voted in favor of giving families the choice. the majority of the rest of the panel emphasized how important it is that protection be extended to the youngest age groups pediatrician dr. evan anderson who was part of moderna's presentation noted deaths due to covid among young children are higher than for other vaccine preventable diseases like flu or chickenpox and rubella, and though both got unanimous recommendations, the vaccines aren't identical moderna's is given as two doses of 25 micrograms each. a quarter of the adult dose. pfizer's is three doses of three micrograms a tenth of the adult dose. that also means it takes a month to finish the moderna series and almost three months to finish the pfizer one things parents may keep in mind if they're thinking about getting the vaccine before back to school in the fall. now, the cdc's advisers may also weigh in on the differences when

7:45 pm
successful satellite launch shortens the timeline to an intercontinental ballistic missile for iran this is the same launch site where the iranians have failed several times recently to send a satellite into orbit a pentagon spokesman says the u.s. military will continue to closely monitor iran's pursuit of viable space launch technology and how it may relate to advancements in its overall ballistic missile program. michael o'hanlon now, senior fellow at the brookings institution. michael, what does this mean for the power dynamic in the middle east, and in particular, for the safety of u.s. troops? >> hi, shep. i'm not that worried about the u.s. troops because as you know, iran's covert warfare and feels it can essentially hold its own against us, and achieve a lot of the goals it sets out for itself in places like syria and yemen it doesn't tend to attack our major military facilities directly because it wants
7:46 pm
deniability and it doesn't want retaliation. in our presence in iraq in the heyday of the occupation after the iranians would ship in weaponry and it would go to extremist groups and they would sometimes place roadside bombs and those bombs would kill americans. but we knee what was going on, but there was a multi-step process that made it harder for us to retaliation directly against one location or installation now, donald trump had enough of that after a while and assassinated or killed soleimani, and there was a lot of bipartisan support for that decision of president trump when he did that two years ago. because soleimani was the ring leader and mastermind. for a long time, iran felt it could operate in that kind of covert space i think it prefers that. it still prefers to avoid inviting direct retaliation by u.s. military forces that are better at this kind of thing than they are. they're good at covert stuff we're good at the more direct stuff. i think they'll stay with the covert activities. >> on this rocket launch, is there reason for concern for the
7:47 pm
u.s. or no >> you know, it's one incremental -- you could spell out a scenario where if iran has the ability to hit europe or the united states some day maybe with a nuclear weapon, that that would be some kind of relevant factor in a crisis, but iran's very unlikely to ever want to do that because, of course, we would retaliate massively. they don't have the nuclear weapon yet, and they're a ways away from having an icbm that can hit the united states. i think they'll stay much more active doing what they're good at, which is bad enough already for us, but i don't see this as a major development. if they can put satellites into space, they're a lot closer to an icbm, but there's so many reasons why it's not likely to be their first choice on how to go to war with us. >> more concerned about uranium enrichment than anything else? >> yeah, because that bomb they can use in the region. i don't think they'll use that either, but they can try to make
7:48 pm
people fear them, make it harder for us to believe we can retaliate against them with an icbm, however, they have multiple steps of development they still have to go through. we can see it on its way we have potential options to shoot it down as we do today with north korea's icbms it's not good, but again, it's not the top tier concern i think it's lower than a nuclear weapon in its like ly salience >> another billion dollars for ukraine. the pentagon announcing the additional aid for their defense just today the ukrainians have been begging for more heavy weapons and fast, as russia gains ground and pummels them in the eastern donbas region. the new package of weapons includes more heavy artillery howitzers and harpoon missiles used against ships meantime, ukrainian soldiers have ignored russia's ultimatum to surrender or die in the strategic eastern city of
