9:00 am
finally today, an update on the twitter saga. now that elon musk wants out, the company is suing elon. the very first hearing will be in delaware this tuesday. we'll see you back here this time, next week. risky business. inflation skyrockets at home, while abroad, president biden makes nice with a leader he vowed to make a pariah. >> the united states has invested in building a positive future in the region. >> was it worth the price? jared bernstein joins me ahead. and proxy battle. republican primaries pit sitting
9:01 am
governors against former president trump who says it's a matter of when, not if he runs. what will the gop look like in 2024? i'll speak exclusively to the republican governor in arizona, doug ducey, next. the january 6 committee will lay out what former president trump did during the insurrection. is it a crime? i'll speak with congresswoman elaine loria in moments. hello. i'm dana bash in washington where the state of our union is really feeling the price hikes. president biden is back in washington this morning, and brushing back criticism of his meeting and fist bump with saudi's brutal crown prince this week. >> why don't you guys talk about something that matters?
9:02 am
>> the face-to-face oil enriched saudi arabia comes as they try to take on gas priceses and inflation. inflation rose 9.1% in june compared to last year without any easy solutions. president biden returns to a domestic agenda that once again has been stymied by democratic senator joe manchin. the west virginia senator announced thursday that he is ending current negotiations on the sweeping climate and tax plans president biden and other democrats hopes to pass, saying he wants to see more information on data before he moves forward. the move makes it difficult fordemocrats to make good on campaign promises before elections and has left his party furious. and president biden is inviting democrats to take what they can get from manchin.
9:03 am
here to talk about all this is economic adviser to president biden, jared bernstein. thank you for coming in. let's talk about that inflation report. your former colleague in the obama administration jason furman calls it brutal, nothing good in it. nobody can suppose that inflation is under control. and in his statement, president biden dismissed it as out of date. if you don't think 9.1% is the inflation rate for the last month, what is it? >> well, first of all, let's be clear. the president himself said repeatedly after that report came out that inflation is una unacceptably high. remember, this is a president who grew up in a family where issues like the price of gas, price of food were kitchen table issues. has dispatched his team to do everything we can to ease praeshs. it is his top domestic economic priority. in terms of out of date, i think
9:04 am
what the president meant there, since the report came out, the price of gas is down about 50 cents a gallon. that's about the fastest decline in about a decade. it's still way too elevated. let's make that clear. we have more work to do in that space, but it gives americans breathing room at the pump. some mentioned the president and the congress, democrats are lined up here to undertake to approve the affordability of prescription drugs. >> i'm going to talk about that. but let's talk about breathing room. president biden said declining gas price just like you said here are providing more breathing room for american families, but the national average is still over $4.50. i want you to live to what democratic senator tammy baldwin told me this week. >> when people come up to you in wisconsin this the grocery store or at the gas station and ask
9:05 am
you about high prices, is that what you would tell them is that the data is out of date in. >> certainly not. there's great news that in the last month, gas prices have gone down by about 40 cents per gallon. that's really not the break people are looking for. >> so when you say breathing room, you understand that there are people out there saying, i'm not feeling breathing room. i'm feeling crunched. >> absolutely. that is well understood. but if we're going to talk about the damage that these high energy prices are having on family budgets, i think we have to talk about the benefits for when those prices come down a little. i've been very clear. more importantly, the president has been unequivocal by not calling this mission accomplished. we're talking about a decline that's really insufficient when it comes to relieving family budgets that nay need. that's why he continues to push
9:06 am
on every aspect he can on this issue in terms of increasing the supply of global energy to help mitigate -- >> you're right. the prices have come down. it's a good thing. it's better than going the other way. on that, "the washington post" is reporting that the treasury department says that the oil price could soar 50% after -- eventually. more than 50% after the european sanctions on russia kick in on russian gas. so the question is are analysts who are predicted that that that might make gas prices $6 a gallon accurate? could prices actually go back up? >> so a lot to unpack there. first of all, you talk about the price of oil. i should have mentioned this earlier. while the gas price is down about 8%, 9%, the oil is down about 20%. when the president talks about relief at the pump, one of the things he's trying to do is get
9:07 am
companies to pass along the savings to consumers. in the first quarter of this year, some of the big oil companies had net profits of $30 billion. these are companies we helped. >> will prices go up? >> i'll get to that. they ought to share some of the profitability with the american people, especially as we're supporting ukraine's efforts in their war against russia. look, nobody can see reliably around the corner when it talks about the prices. i would say, really don't pay a lot of attention to those forecasts because there's too much volatility. what i can say is it's very likely the gas prices can continue to track down, say, for the rest of this month. i say that because not just the whole prices are down, but the wholesale prices are. again, dana, look. this is mminutae.
9:08 am
>> i promise we'll get to that. one more question about the efforts that the administration is making on oil. the president just returned from saudi arabia. he just met with crown prince mohammad bin salman. i want you to look at this image. i know you've seen it. the world has seen it, the first bump. the reaction has been swift because this is a man who ordered the brutal murder of a journalist, and then his body was dismembered with a bone saw. jamal khashoggi's fiancee said if he were alive today, he would say, is this the accountability you promised for my murder. the blood of mbs's next victims is on your hands. >> you're talking to an economic policy adviser. i'm much more able to give you the fallout on meetings, not greetings.
9:09 am
the president talked about it. there for everyone to see. let me quote something jake sullivan said, which i think is quite ross nanlt. the president is ensuring there's not a vacuum in the middle east, that machinery engagement will be a future of u.s. policy in this region. what jake is saying and the president is engaged here is try to stabilize a critical region of this world, something he's consistently done in his policy work as a senator for many decades. an economically stable relationship with the middle east is key. >> that's a long-term goal. did he deliver anything on the road from this very controversial meeting? >> we saw saudi arabia say it would increase its capacity for oil production and for them for more information there, but, remember, saudi arabia is part of -- of course, part of opec, part of the cartel. the president and some of our
9:10 am
other members of our foreign policy team have been pressuring opec to increase production. and, in fact, a few weeks ago, they talked about doing precisely that, july and august, increasing by 50%. this very much a part of that kind of effort. >> let's talk about the domestic agenda and what happened this week. senator manchin backed out of negotiations on parts of that plan, climate crisis. president biden said they should pass the scaled down plan to extend obama subsidies, to allow medicare to negotiate lower drug prices, for example. i want you to listen to senator manchin about why he blocked other agenda. >> inflation is killing many, many people. they can't buy gasgasoline. they have a hard time buying groceries.
9:11 am
they everything they buy and consume for their daily lives is a hardship to them, and can't we do something about that. >> he's already taken unprecedented action. i think this is important. if you can't find a legislative path to clean energy, the urgency of the problem is so significant, he'll find an executive order. he's already found that path. he'll continue down it. he has invoked the defense production act to ramp up clean energy production in this country. he has helped to kick start the offshore wind industry. he has set the toughest ever emission standards. he'll continue to pursue that with or without the congress. i think, dana, it's beyond me how anybody could miss it. ore $100 billion a year in costs
9:12 am
to our economy based on floods, wildfires, droughts. look at the geopolitical pressures from this. there is a great rationale to undertake what this president will do, and he'll continue to press. >> thank you. jared bernstein, i appreciate your time. >> my pressure. he's facing off against president trump in a proxy war. arizona governor doug ducey will join me next. and donald trump's white house counsel talked to the jan 6 committee for several hours. how much did he do at the capitol? was he attacked by his own supporters? stay with us.

9:16 am
are you a christian author with a book that you're ready to share with the world? get published now, call for your free publisher kit today! welcome back to state of the union. one of the hallmarks of this election is former president trump's determination to back gop candidates who subscribe to his lies about the 2020 election. the former president heads to arizona next week to rally for his pick to replace the term limited ducey.
9:17 am
outgoing governor and co-chair of the governor's association ducey is backing a different candidate to replace him, real estate developer karen day sum rosen. and here with me now is governor ducey. thank you so much for joining me. your state's primary is now just over two weeks away. you and the former president are on the opposite sides of this primary battle. and the candidate he's supporting says the 20 election was stoken. what's at risk for your state and the overall republican party and its future? >> well, the names on the ball let are karen taylor robeson and carey lake. karen taylor robeson is the real conservative. she's the real deal. she started her career working for ronald reagan. she's prolaw, pro-gun, pro-life.
9:18 am
she's a mother of four. i think she'll the best person to be a fresh new leader for the state of arizona. her opponent on the other hand bears no resemblance, her campaign or interpersonal relations with me, for 30 year. this is all an act. >> how does this play into the national conversation, particularly as i mentioned, the election in 2020. carey lake is backed by the former president in large part because she says the 20 election was stolen. >> well, carey lake's misleading voters with no evidence. she's been tagged by her opponents with the nickname fake lake, which seems to be sticking and actually doing some damage. karen taylor robeson started from zero, and now this is a
9:19 am
margin of zero race. >> will the republican support lake if she wins the primary? >> the republican governors association is in the business of electing republican governors, and we happen to be very good at it. we're the only majority conference in the country. we protect our incumbents, keep the red states red, and we're on offense all over the country right now. this is the most expansive map we've ever had. oregon just came online, so we're on offense. we don't support lost causes. we certainly don't support land landslides. we go to states that get the -- >> let me expand beyond arizona. doug mastriano has already won in pennsylvania for the governor's race. will the rga support him, or is he in that category of lost
9:20 am
cause? >> no, i didn't say lost cause in any category yet. >> but i'm asking you. will the rga support him in pennsylvania? >> november 8th is a long way off, so we'll be looking at this map. we'll be looking at the resources have. we don't know what september and october are going to hole. we don't know who the next charlie baker in massachusetts, larry hogan in virginia are going to be. we'll base it on success and results. we don't spread the dollars pro rata across the country. we go to the states where people have moved numbers, and we build coalitions and win those races. >> let me ask you on a personal level. do you, doug ducey, who does not believe the 2020 election was stolen either in pennsylvania or your state, that doug mastriano
9:21 am
should be in a -- >> i think the state would be better served by those who believe in the people, believe that small businesses should operate, and small children should be in classrooms. i don't think we should think for one more moment about 2020. this is about the 2022 election cycle. as i said, the job of the rga is to elect republicans, and that's what we're going to do in this cycle. >> i want to ask you about january 6. your friend rusty bowers testified before the committee about trect pressure he got from donald trump, john eastman, and rudy giuliani. you told me donald trump bears some responsibility for jan 6. do you believe his actions on january 6 or inaction should disqualify him from holding public office in the future?
9:22 am
>> dana, i condemned january 6, and i think anyone who broke the law should be held accountable. in our system, h is up to the voters on what happens next. so many people want to talk about 2024. i want to resist that temptation to talk about hypotheticals. i think the best way to taunl about this is turn the page. we need to make sure we get the best possible people elected in 2022. that's my focus as well as running the state of arizona every single day. >> if donald trump runs in 2024, will you support him? >> i think we'll have options. i'm hopeful. i want somebody who can kwichb the general election because i believe in 2022, the general election is the republican party's for the taking. >> let's talk about a couple of important issues voters are talking about and thinking
9:23 am
about. gas prices. in your state they're still at $4.85 per gallon, well ail above the average. will you support temporarily lifting arizona's gas tax? >> arizona has the lowest flat tax in the nation. we just passed the largest tax decrease in the history of our state. meanwhile president biden is flying to the middle east and fist bumping with murderers and despots, asking for more supplies. what he could do is open up the key stone pipeline. i thought he would work with me on american energy leaders and supply more supply or fossil fuels, clean energy, and solve this crisis. he's going to have to make that decision. he's not going to be able to do
9:24 am
anything. we're going to to have good policy here, and joe biden can lead from the white house well. >> governor, you signed a 15-week abortion ban. your state is trying to reinstate a 19-year-old law which is to ban abortion except to save the life of a mother. would you support that? >> listen, dana. i know you know i'm proudly pro-life. arizona is considered the number one most pro-life state in the nation. i was supportive of the supreme court's actions. i believe roe versus wade was wrongly decided, and now it comes pack to the states. the law i signed was the 15-week abortion law. the legal authority inside the
9:25 am
state is with the attorney general. ultimately it should come back to the legislatures and the people to make these decisions. >> so do you support a total ban, or do you not? what do you personally believe as governor? >> what i ran on in 2014 is that i am pro-life with exceptions for life of the mother, rape, and incest. and that's what i remain. >> you signed a new school voucher program into law. it lets any student in your state use publicly funded vouchers to help pay for private schools. since all students are eligible, critics say it will funnel state dollars to wealthy families who can already afford it. why would that be? >> arizona's now the gold standard for educational freedom. this is not vouchers. it this is a scholarship.
9:26 am
i'm not concerned about the wealthy families. i'm concerned about the poor families. 50 years ago politicians stood in the school house door and wouldn't let minorities in. today politicians stand in the school house door and won't let minorities out. it's time tom set it. now they'll have a way out and be able to arron, grow, and climb the economic latter. i encourage all my republicans and make sure everyone in your state has access to their taxpayer dollars so they can get the education of their parents' choice. >> if your focus is on that, why not just focus the public funding on them?
9:27 am
why also give public funding to wealthy families? >> public education is about educating our public, and i believe in equal opportunity for all of our students and all of our families. i really think this is a way to renew america, where you're learning something of value, math, reading, science, character formation. arizona leads on this already as the number one state for school choice, and now with educational savings accounts, we're going to take it to the next sfleevl governor doocy of arizona, thanks so much for joining me. i really appreciate. >> it thank you, dana. what happened to the secret service text messages of january 6, and what e's ahead for this next meeting. that's ahead.

welcome back to state of the union. the january 6 committee will reveal what they know this week about the 187 minutes that former president trump spent that day not trying to stop the rioters from ransacking the u.s. cap capitol. here with me now is one of the two committee leaders leading the upcoming hearing. congr congresswoman luria. does your committee know what donald trump was doing for all of those 187 minutes on january 6, and how much did the testimony from pat cipollone,
9:33 am
his white house counsel then, help answer that question? >> dana, i'll start out. it was pretty simple. he did nothing to stop the riot. we'll go through minute by minute from the time he left the stage of the ellipse at the white house and sat in the white house in the dining room with his advisers, urning him to take action. not only was he not doing anything. he egged people on saying vice president pence didn't have the courage to do the right thing. mr. cipollone's testimony is very valuable. we'll be incorporating that into the hearing on thursday. there's more. there are other witnesses who have yet to appear from our previous hearings who will add a lot of value and information to events of that critical time on january 6. >> who will that be?
9:34 am
>> you'll have to wait till thursday to see, but i will tell you, you know, people who were in the white house, people who were close to the president, and also, you know, people who had insight into the actions that were going on, you know, in a variety of ways that they were trying to control the violence. >> are they people we haven't heard from thus far? >> yes. there will definitely be people included in the hearing who we have not heard from so far. >> the inaction you talked about, does it constitute a crime, in your view? >> well, you know, mr. kinzinger and i are both veterans leading this committee. as veterans of the military, we understand what action looks like in the time of crisis, and also the president, he's the commander in chief. he's the only person in the constitution whose duty is explicitly laid out to ensure laws are faithfully executed. i look at it as a dereliction of
9:35 am
duty. he didn't act. we'll address it in a lot of detail, and from that, we'll provide information from earlier hearings. >> your panel just subpoenaed the u.s. secret service over texts. this is an extraordinary move. the dhs said the secret service erased them. now congressman jamie raskin said there are contradictions about that. can you clarify? do texts still remain from january 6, and are you confident they were not deleted nefariously? >> you know, that's what we have to get to the bottom of. there's a requirement for federal agent is to maintain records. an agency that is such a key part, you would think they would do everything to preserve records. we'll analyze what went right or
9:36 am
wrong in their proceeds. we're looking into this. that's why we're looking into this. you know, not being an i.t. expert, i do understand there's a lot of things that can be done and recouping of data. we want to make sure we understand the bottom line. where are these text messages, and can they be uncovered. >> congresswoman, president trump is considering launching a presidential bid as soon as this fall. if donald trump announces a campaign for president, what will that mean if anything as to how you conduct your investigation and the importance of it? >> well, it will not change how we conduct our investigation. it will prevent something like this from happening in the future. the bottom line is nobody is above the law, whether he's president, future presidential candidate, we're going to pursue
9:37 am
the facts, analyze it, and if necessary, pass it along to other people who would act in the appropriate way to hold him accountable. >> this hearing this coming week is the last one planned, but it really seems like you're getting a slew of new information on a daily basis. do you expect we're going to see more? >> so this is the last in this series that we've put together where we've laid out a framework to describe the different elements leading up to and on that day. certainly we are receiving new information every single day, even, you know, day by day, incorporating more information that we will present on thursday. you will definitely be hearing from the committee again. that time line, whether it's in the form of a hearing or other methods, we have a responsibility to present things we uncover and we're talking about the best way to do that. >> is your investigation in some
9:38 am
ways ramping up with the new information you're getting? >> i would say so. you know, at one point as we came into the end of this series of hearings, we thought this might be a point where we transitioned in an effort to make sure we had documented and focused on the recommendations. i would say we're ahead on the hearing as well as full speed ahead on other elements of what we have a responsibility to do as a congressional committee. >> congresswoman elaine luria, thank you so much. we'll be watching you on thursday. and you out there can watch the coverage of the jan 6 hearing right here, prime time, on cnn. tune in on thursday evening. democrats help voters turn out in november regarding abortion rights, but could the way they're talking about the issue be turning some of the voters off? we're going to talk about that with our panel next. recommende d brand that is scientifically designed to help manage your blood sugar.

(soft music) we're talking about women dying. we're talking about more than half the population not being able to make decisions when not even half of this party has a uterus. when you silence us and don't allow us to amend bills that won't let people win, that won't allow women to make their own decisions, you're silencing all of us. >> welcome back to ""state of
9:43 am
the union."" we're here with our panel. we have the woman you just heard joe, heard, joe anna mclennan. you met to talk about the administration's efforts and their access to abortion and people who are in tough spots in states where it's becoming illegal. is the administration doing enough? >> absolutely. vice president kamala harris has made this a priority for our station. we know congress moved very quickly on friday. we're waiting on the united states senate to act and vote for the women's health care act. vice president kamala harris and my colleagues and i and house democrats from the entire commonwealth, we sat down to address what the government has done thus far and make sure voters are aware that for the first time in a very long time,
9:44 am
women's health care and our independence including our ability to vote freely is on the ballot in pennsylvania. >> how you do think this issue is playing now that wes've had some time for it to settle in for the electorate? >> most of the polling, you know, the economy, inflation, gas prices are always the top tier tickets for the midterms. however, in some of these swing districts for republicans, especially in the south, i think it could be challenging. that said, the economy is the whole game for the midterms. in 2024, this is going to be interesting. in a state like florida that has a major metropolitan area like miami, i think it becomes a bigger challenge for him. >> so there's abortion and then another hot issue, and this is
9:45 am
t the culture wars playing out on society in general. i want you to listen to an interchange earlier this week between josh hawley and a whom who accuses him of being trancephobic. >> would that be women? >> many women, since women have the ka capacity for women. many women don't have the capacity. there's also a non-binary -- i want to recognize your line of questioning is trancephobic. >> listen. i watched the exchange. i think most voters, you played that clip. republican voters are going to agree with josh hawley asking the question. look, you meet with your students at this level? she was very aggressive back.
9:46 am
josh hawley said, do you expect -- can men have babies? she said that's a trancephobic question. i'm not sure that's a question. most would say men cannot have babies. you're going to see that clip over and over. to another point, dana, when you talk about the abortion issue, you heard jeff zeleny. he was in pittsburgh this week. he was out and about and he said, look, you talked about it, people in pennsylvania, they don't care about it. it's not renlsterring with them. they're talking about economy, inflation, crime, all the issues paul does not want to talk about. all cau contraire. josh hawley doesn't want to talk it. under morks josh hawley is fourth in gun death, 40th in life expectancy. it has above the national
9:47 am
average for child poverty. he's doing a terrible job on crime, health care, jobs, so he wants to beat up on the most -- >> come on. >> it's despicable. he needs do his job instead of beating up on some california law professor. >> the whole game in the midterms is the economy. but there's an interesting kind of friction that comes about when you have the dobbs decision. i consider myself an lgbtq ally, but we have this new language that we can't acknowledge it's women's issues. i think the right is kind of fusing on that. there's some validity to it. but, again, this is so far down. >> it's going to be far down. >> the other thing we have to realize is western pennsylvania has already been very vocal about them being pro-choice. in washington county right after
9:48 am
