tv   MONEY With Melissa Francis  FOX Business  April 24, 2015 2:00pm-3:01pm EDT

2:00 pm
where are the crowds? . plus the company that will let you rent it before you buy. numbers don't lie. following the money trail as new polls show americans are questioning hillary's honesty. you heard it here first. chris christie is ready to run for president. charlie gasparino's exclusive scoop. and ditching the cart on the course? the electric skateboard designed for the coordinated golfer in your life. its creator surfing legend laird hamilton is here to show us how it works. even when they say it's not, it's always about "money." . melissa: blurred lines and apple the tech giant is known for apple mania with huge crowds of fans lining up for the latest product. in 2013, nearly 1500 people lined up for the launch of the iphone 5s at just one store. all those people.
2:01 pm
today on the release of the new apple watch, the company's first new product category in more than five years? there it is. you know about 100 appleholics camped out in front of the one and only u.s. retailer selling the apple watch. let's bring in charlie gasparino, veronica dagher, i was sure that charlie flew out to l.a. to be in the line. >> can't you buy this online? melissa: i think that's the crux of the problem. >> then there's no problem, then. >> you bury the lead. people buy it online you. >> misinterpreted the lead. they get everyone here, they have the hype they have the huge line. >> but they have online hype now. >> it's different, part of waiting in line was part of the excitement and the mystique. they said we don't want to do that anymore to our customers, but maybe she didn't realize that's part of appeal in
2:02 pm
creating the scarcity effect. they enjoy it. >> i think these guys are homeless. >> by the way, is that not right? >> no. >> when the iphone came out it replaced about 35 different gadgets we used to buy at best buy. the watch doesn't do that. apple is trying to make the case how the watch is necessary. i don't city yet. i talked with our top tech columnist at "barron's" and analysts are becoming bullish as they look at supply chains and delivery dates, it's going to do well. >> is apple an advertiser of us? >> we're going to see the numbers to jack's point. how many are they actually going to sell is the big question? melissa: i don't know i think you could say anything you would like to say about apple. in terms of the watch a lot of them are delivered before the push back date do we know because people canceled order or the supply chain has improved? >> the biggest thing for the watch is the potential watch customer is an iphone owner.
2:03 pm
the two work together. there is a huge install base for the iphone. if you can convert a small percentage of iphone users, you can do well with the watch. >> where is your watch? >> i ask people next to me what time it is. melissa: a lot of people use their phone, they don't have a watch. but it means a lot of people don't have a watch, have you room for the other device if you want. veronica, would you get one? >> i'm going to see how it goes. i usually don't buy the first generation product. make them tweek it and improve it and eventually, you will buy me one. >> this is a great day for capitalism. [ laughter ] >> innovation and technological innovation that a company as wonderful as apple can put like a watch, and make a watch, and in that watch, you can do things with it. an amazing day. >> they have minutes too?
2:04 pm
melissa: we mocked the ipad similarly. >> i'm not mocking it. no. melissa: you mocked the ipad. seemed like one of the things you didn't need it. you had a laptop lo and behold, everybody but charlie had an ipad. >> i'm waiting to see, i think a lot of people are going to wait and see. >> i'm going to wait and never see. >> really? melissa: okay fox business' own jo ling kent is outside an apple store in new york city. jo what is the feeling like there? we don't have the usual lines the watch isn't there, but can you go in order and it. what are people saying? >> reporter: yeah here, you can go inside and try on all of the watches, including the very fancy gold version that i'm sure you love. it's a strange feeling to be anat anat -- at an apple store on day one of a launch and not see
2:05 pm
many people. at max fields in l.a. is one location out of five around the world where you can buy the apple watch in person today. here's the catch. none of those are apple stores. they are luxury retailers in london, tokyo berlin, paris and l.a. we are expecting the interest is very high. 20 million units are expected to be sold this year, which would blow out competition. but then again, a lot of individuals say, like you guys have been talking about this, is not about edition one, it's about the second edition does and what that can do. melissa. melissa: jo thank you so much. >> if i buy an apple watch, you can expense it to the company. melissa: no. comcast scrapping 45 million-dollar merger with time warner. the deal under review by regulators for more than a year. attorney general eric holder had authorized a lawsuit against the merger.
2:06 pm
that is according to dow jones, jack, what do you think? >> interesting case there's not a lot of overlap between the customer bases for the companies. not a matter of cable television service becoming better or worse because of the deal. a matter of future technologies and are they impaired in ability to compete against cable. technologies like netflix and these companies because cable is too big and powerful. that's the dilemma here, and obviously the government doesn't want to see it. >> when bloomberg wrote the story, there were justice department antitrust -- melissa: i'm unfamiliar with the company. >> they give us credit every now and then. this is two weeks ago, this is the "wall street journal," we'll get into that later. when they broke the story about the justice department not liking the deal, i thought it was to squeeze extra concession. i tweeted that. the minute i tweeted that i got an e-mail and call from two of my best sources who are m&a bankers who said no way, this deal is not going to go
2:07 pm
through. here's what they said. they said there was more overlap than people thought. overlap in a lot of areas. the second thing is obama administration hates transformational deals, they absolutely hate it. it was the bankers on this deal. melissa: unless you are a uranium company. >> unless they give to the clinton foundation. melissa: yeah. >> the bankers on the deal totally misplaced this. wall street is feeling the pain. gazillions in fees plus other deals essentially stopped. this is having a huge effect on wall street. >> they're going to follow on deals the companies would have been forced to sell off part of the business. >> probably see smaller deals among cable companies because the industry is changing so much. so much cord cutting they need to adapt the businesses. the initial focus of the deal was to get around the cord cutting and be competitive and they have the issue of how do you deal with the cord cutting
2:08 pm
that's happening. >> that's how they tried to -- that was the case they tried to make to the justice department and failed. melissa: marco rubio the latest front-runner according to the latest fox news poll. what do you think about this one? hang onto the lead? >> solidly positive. >> where is chris christie? >> this poll was done a week after he announced his candidacy. candidates get a bump during that time. melissa: this is not the first one that has had him out front. and the other thing that is significants is it's likely republican primary voters. he's not walking on the street. >> he's clearly doing level. what's strike here is jeb bush is far from being any kind of front-runner. >> talking about seven people all within the margin of error. melissa: you broke some news today. >> well, it looks like chris christie. i didn't see his face in that group, but it looks like chris
2:09 pm
christie is going to make it official and fairly imminent. here's what we know, fox business network was the first to report it. "wall street journal" didn't give us credit but the "new york times" did. here's what happens. chris christie's wife works for a major hedge fund. she quit resigned from pog. she said i'm resigning as my husband is getting ready to announce. did he officially announce it? no. you don't quit your job. she is the bread winner of the family. i don't know what the governor makes $150,000? she made close to a million. when the bread winner resigns there's a reason you can't be too close to wall street. jeb bush resigned his position as senior adviser from barclays early in the year, looks like he's going to run. ted cruz's wife resigned as he announced he was going to run. she took a leave of absence as a wealth adviser for goldman sachs. for all intents and purposes,
2:10 pm
this is a clear sign that all the investigations involving the closure of the gwb may hit other people, his aides. but looks like -- she would not do this if he was getting indicted so to speak. melissa: a live look at the statue of liberty. it was evacuated last hour after reports there of a suspicious package. learning that a bomb squad has been sent to sweep the scene. hundreds of visitors ferried off the island amid security concerns. fbi said it is aware of the package. it is monitoring the situation. hillary clinton not the only one with the press on her tail. we're going to tell you why jeb bush should be sleeping with maybe one eye open? plus live to a high-flying drone school. keep your head on the swivel at this place. more "money" coming up.

2:15 pm
who sells uranium production interest to russia used family foundation to make contributions to the clinton foundation that totaled more than 2.3 million dollars. that has many questioning if this was instance of pay for play? the article was built its reporting off the upcoming book "clinton cash" published by harpercollins. "clinton cash" author peter schweitzer sat down for the upcoming special, clinton tangled web. >> we're talking about uranium talking about things that relate to the nuclear issue. talking about the russian government. >> which already provides equipment materiale to iran. >> that's correct. >> the problem is hillary clinton's family foundation the clinton foundation was receiving tens of millions of dollars from shareholders in uranium one who wanted the russian government to acquire them because it would be a
2:16 pm
financial landfall. >> reporter: so on the one hand, the money issue. the second issue was the approval process here as the uranium takeover was happening. this had to be approved by several government agencies. that included the stata department run by hillary clinton. as schweitzer points out, the americans have control of a lot of uranium. >> uranium one was active in acquiring uranium assets actual in the united states itself. by 2008 2009, they were a particularly attractive target for the russian government. >> and the russians acquired that target. >> acquired with 50% projected uranium output by 2015. >> in other words russia now controls what was projected to be up to half of america's uranium. >> and can you catch more of
2:17 pm
bret baier's interview with peter schweitzer in clinton, tangled web. it airs on the fox news channel tonight at 10:00 eastern. and tomorrow at 6:00 eastern on the fox business network. schweitzer brings up a businessman named frank justra justra slammed that article writing and highlighted in bold, quote, this is not about me but an attempt to tear down secretary clinton and presidential campaign. the white house press secretary josh earnest said there wasn't evidence to back up the accusations, and melissa, characterizing this as a political attack. melissa? melissa: plenty of evidence blake thank you so much. i want to bring in political experts for the reaction byron is a fox news contributor. we also have richard fowler a democratic strategist and host of the richard fowler radio show. richard start with you, because the clintons are screaming that you know, this is a political takedown.
2:18 pm
it seems like there is so much smoke and there is so much circumstantial evidence that it can only be solved with an investigation from the justice department. if there's nothing wrong here, then why not let somebody with authority investigate and see if there is influence peddling going on? >> this is all smoke in mirrors, it hasn't risen to that level. there is no criminal intent. no laws were broken -- melissa: let me stop you right there. stop you right there. because it looks like there were plenty of laws that were broken. there were millions of dollars that changed hands coming from companies who need the clinton's help. the clintons went out and helped the companies. >> let me make it clear -- >> something went on there is an investigation into whether or not this was influence peddling. >> at the time when hillary clinton was secretary of state she was not involved in the day to day running of the foundation. so those are things that are
2:19 pm
completely different. melissa: her husband received money directly from the investment bank pushing this deal. >> but that's not the secretary. but that's not the secretary. melissa: it absolutely is. they're married. 50% of assets are hers. that went into her bank account. that is hers byron, would you care to respond? >> i would like to keep this in the political process. i think that hillary clinton is coming under increasing pressure to speak substantively about the allegations which are bigger and serious. the "new york times" editorial board which is a friendly place for the clintons came out today calling on her to say more. so i'd like to see how that goes right now. when you get prosecutors involved everybody shuts down, everybody's lawyered up and that's not a good place to be in a political campaign. melissa: why doesn't she get now the front and hand over e-mails and make herself more transparent. why doesn't she start with the server, richard. if she wants to clear up this and get on with the process
2:20 pm
show us your e-mails? >> she has released the e-mails. released to the state department and the state department is planning to release them to the general public. melissa: no, she hasn't. we established she was in photos sending e-mails. we haven't received the e-mails. >> sent them to the state department. the state department's job to vet the e-mails make sure there is nothing classified and release them to the opinion. the state department says they are vetting the e-mails as we speak. melissa: why doesn't she say why don't you release the e-mails thatta you have between us? if she has nothing to hide why is jeff emel not releasing his e-mails. >> secretary clinton said definitively that she did not use past classified information on her private e-mail system. i think this e-mail thing is a big story and it is not going away. there's a lot left to know about it. melissa: we got to go. thanks to both of you. appreciate your time. a big loss giving amazon a

2:27 pm
we go. i know you probably feel threatened by this device. i'm teasing, that's amazing. what is behind the move to get away from the golf cart, do you think? >> i think part of it has to do with first of all to speed up play. it makes the game faster because you're an individual car. it's a more athletic activity. it's a different way to kind of experience the course and you know it makes good players play better because they're engaged and like i said speeds up play. it brings young people into it. so we've heard people say, i really don't want to play golf but would love to go try to ride the golfboard on the course. so it's a way, you know it's answering all of these needs that golf has. golf really is in trouble so it's providing all those, but it's -- it's birthed from a genuine intention to make it more fun for us. melissa: absolutely looks like
