6:04 am
trade two really good because he is that all is well. why did james comey releases testimony a day early, what do you think? dagen: you. >> typically when you appear before a committee, you didn't get them to prepared testimony ahead of time so it will come out before the hearing anyway. he obviously did not give lawmakers ofoth partiethe information they asked for. we'll see how to ey get about that. the bottom line looks like no case here. maria: do you think the question of did the read allege ask jim comey to lay off the investigation during the election. will that come up? >> that is a good question. we are obviously getting the play-by-play of interactions with president trump. we haven't heard the back story that caused him to break protocol last year. he doesn't seem to believe he ought to have a boss.
6:05 am
he obviously doesn't think the president should be his boss. maria: he is a real operator worried about his reputation. there are a lot of traveling games in there about jim comey and not president trump. i don't think we've learned anything about the way she manages people or his personality from the prepared testimony. maria: we've got a lot to cover pictured in the conversation, former whitewater independent counsel robert ray is here. the senator from north dakota john hilton is joining us. washington congresswoman cathy mcmorris rogers also weighed in on the president's agenda in the regulation rollback. we will bring you all of that coming up. british voters headed to the polls today for the third time in over two years in a snap election called by prime minister teresa knight to shore up our mandate to the negotiation -- the conservative

party and her main rival the labor party led by jeremy corbett with the "financial times" poll of polls put theresa may's conservative party just ahead. that is down more than 20% back in april. the election after to terrorist attacks in the span of three weeks. see what kind of voters had to say about whether security will affect their votes. >> i think they are more important this election. i think security is an important thing, but not only important thing. >> i think it's a really important aspect. the selection to me was very much a brexit though. >> is only one issue among several. i wouldn't necessarily say at the top. by end of this type drug i'm more interested in things that
6:07 am
pensions and so forth. trade your joining us now from westminster with the latest, business editor of the independent josie cox. thank you for weighed in this morning. >> hi, maria. trade to do you think the terrorist attacks will affect your vote? >> for what we were hearing as well, of course it's on the minds of people. it was a relatively sizable attack. it took the lives of people. people are still talking about it. definitely on the top of our conscious. on top of that as well, it is a brexit vote. we are a couple weeks away from starting britain's exit from the european union which is an unprecedented step that is still something that divides the nation at the moment. that is also one of the key electoral issues today. >> james springer with "the wall street journal." wondering if you could tell us about economics here. unlike previous conservatives,
6:08 am
theresa may has not been pushing grow economics, less taxes. is this a problem in termof the identity of her party? >> i think especially this feeds into the brexit debate. so much uncertainty about what it will economically beyond the u.k. there have been projections that it will seriously hurt gdp growth. we've already seen inflation reached 2.7% which is the highest in a number of years. the pounds are significantly lower than the dollar down 10% since last june so. these things are feeding into concerns of the think tanks of the populace as well. there has definitely been a lot of criticism that theresa may has not addressed those concerns as well as she might have. dagen: josie, let say jeremy corbett does end up the leader of britain. you don't make spec that he
6:09 am
would put another referendum in front of the british people to then decide whether they stay in the european union are not. he did not campaign for state in the union actively, correct? >> that is right. that's absolutely right. we are so far entrenched in the process that even though official negotiations haven't yet started, there's obviously talkbrexit &o. would n almost a yr now. it would be hard to reverse that. not least because of the willingness of our counterpart to cooperate and be willing to tolerate a backpedaling. >> what would be the real probability of jeremy corbyn winning. we've seen a titan. what would be the possibility of said three losing because that would be a risk.
6:10 am
>> there's obviously a still a probability of a hung parliament coming out of the election tonight. overall, it does look like from the polls that theresa may's conservative party will secure a majority. the possibility of jeremy corbyn winning and becoming the next prime minister is reduced on all of the posters i've been talking to. that is very marginal at the moment. as we all know from the last couple of years, nothing should be taken for granted that we should brace for any kind of surprise. maria: now we know that. thank you so much. josie cox in the u.k. former fbi director james comey to take center stage today as he is widely anticipated to say a number of things. he released his testimony already. the prepared testimony making huge waves.

6:12 am
questions about conversations with the president included the so-called request for his loyalty about which the president told fox news base. >> no, i did it, but i don't think it would be a bad question to ask. loyal to the country, loyalty to the united states is important. it depends on how you define loyalty. number one. number two, i don't know how that got there because i didn't ask that question. reporter: added mass that question. maybe he was asking it in a different way. either way the testimony set to begin at 10:00 a.m. we are very excited in washington and i will be here for you but the coverage. maria: a comeback as news develops. keep your right here on the fox business network. we will take live to james comey testimony today kicking off at 10:00 a.m. eastern. we will take it live right here. coca-cola cut the sugar.

6:23 am
president's focus on infrastructure. with everything going on in terms of jim comey investigations. >> the infrastructure pieces critical because it did for economic growth. the better infrastructure the president talked about waterways, air traffic control system. these are crucial things if we get our economy moving. in the long run, this is a big investment we can make. this is going to be absolutely crucial. it's unfortunate we haven't seen or support because this is an issue we thought would be able to get cooperation on. maria: we haven't seen any cooperation on the agenda. do you think is a little push this through? >> does he get some relief on permitting? every big effort is five or 10 years and bureaucratic hurdles. can we see that?

i don't expect that to be a democratic priority but could that end up in the bill? >> is absolutely critical. >> the rollback in ranks. >> has been undercover to really renovate the administrative state. we have so much stuff over the last eight years with barack obama they could have harder and harder for businesses to grow and invest. with respect to infrastructure, impacts have been huge and unfortunate. but in a different direction regulation absolutely critical. if we are going to get anything done. >> any private money in the process and get the $1 trillion target, you have to convince them again and again and again that it will be an easier permitting process. "the wall street journal" reported that their blackstone is behind this effort to lay cables to bring electricity from
6:25 am
canada into the new york city area. the permitting process is 10 years log in that effort. there is skepticism on the republican side as well. the journal reported today the effort to privatize air traffic control is facing resistance from republicans who are worried about rural areas and less populous areas. >> anytime you've got an entrenched system there would be people defending the entrenched system. there's no doubt if you look at air traffic and drove, this is something democrats and republicans have agreed on. for administrators coming out saying the system and crucial if we are going to move the system forward. they know how much the disaster this could bbecause of airspace design in the 1960s and 70s. >> it all begins of health care.

the the sequel to the beloved classic. james comey will testify before the senate intelligence committee. his prepared remarks were released yesterday. they are already making waves. in seven pages of prepared testimony, jim comey told this, president trump told him quote, i need loyalty, i expect loyalty. comey written memos toself after the dinner with president trump. comey informed president trump three separate occasions between january and april that he is not personally under investigation. on that last claim, president trump's outside attorney, mark kasowitz released this statement saying the president feels completely, totally vindicated. joining us to weigh in, former special prosecutor and served aspects counsel to jim come my while he was deputy attorney general, bill mattea. good to see you, bill. thanks for joining us. >> good to see you, maria. maria: president trump described
7:32 am
jim comey as showboat, unquote. comey expected to tell his side of the story. what are you expecting? >> i expect jim will stick to the facts. if you remember the testimony in 2007 related to general ashcroft on his deathbed and andrew card coming to his side. he kept to the facts. he didn't try to stray from that and didn't try to give opinions. he stuck to the facts and i expect him to do that today. >> the famous rod rosen soon memo went through chapter and verse looking back at 2016 how mr. comey violated normal procedures for conducting an investigation. does jim comey have a problem following the rules? >> no, but i think that jim, he is is coreign bled talented individu with amazing moral compass and he is is not he af of anything. he felt compelled to get out in front of it. i think some people might have done it differently. that is jim's style. jim is a gregarious person. he is not afraid to tell people
7:33 am
what his opinion is. our new fbi director if chris wray is confirmed will be much different. maria: how will he be different? >> chris is much more introvert ed. he will not put himself out there. it is not in his dna. dagen: in terms of james comey, dagen mcdowell by the way is he bitter and got fired the way he did and will we see any evidence of that today? >> no. i don't think so. jim is just not that way. you will not see any bitterness. quite frankly jim had a distinguished career. he had a distinguished time when he was at the fbi. i'm sure he feels proud about that. i think he feels proud the way he handled the situation. maria: do you think he was under pressure during the 2016 to lay off the investigation into hillary clinton given the fact that his boss, loretta lynch had meeting on tarmac with her husband, president bill clinton? did he feel pressure to lay off of that investigation?
7:34 am
>> you know, i don't think jim felt pressure one way or the other, because the man has amazing confidence in himself. he is an incredibly bright individual. probably one of the brigest individuals i ever worked with. i think he wanted to do the right thing. i think he felt like he needed to do the right thing and getting out telling folks what was happening in different stages in the investigation. maria: so you think he did the right thing? >> you know he, i'm not sure if i were in his shoes i would have done the same thing, then again i'm not jim comey. >> this is lindsey here. you know chris wray very well. >> i do. >> he has extensive experience in white-collar crime and corporate fraud. how is his experience in national security and defense? >> well it is strong, when he worked for larry thompson the deputy attorney general, it was in the aftermath of 9/11. he worked hand in groff with larry in order to buttress doj's terrorism efforts. when he became assistant attorney general in the criminal
7:35 am
division, he also worked on terrorism issues a great deal. i know chris will feel very comfortable with that, in addition to his white-collar background and a lot of things he has done since he left the justice department. dagen: bill, he has been in private practice nearly 12 years working in corporate litigation. does that put him at a disadvantage? much has changed about what is going on around the world in terms of our fight against terrorism? >> you could have said the same thing about jim comey but you didn't see it because jim was with a private equity firm before the head of the fbi. before then he was at lockheed martin, not working with these kind of terrorism issues at least directly. chris i don't think, he will get up to speed very quickly. he is a very bright guy and he is a quick learner. >> bill, back to jim comey if we could. the investors have looked at this prepared testimony, judging by the markets they have sided there is nothing here that creates any legal jeopardy for the president, would you agree? >> i tend to agree.
7:36 am
i don't think, if demanded that the investigation be closed into russia, that would have been one thing. i think probably closest it comes trying to talk about flynn and saying hey, he is a good guy, can you see fit to move past that? that would probably thing the closest thing in my eyes. >> could we all agree flynn was mistreated by our government? that his rights were violated? >> i'll tell you what, i'm not sure i'm nuanced you enough to tell but the flynn situation. you may have more facts than i do about it. i don't know that i can agree with that but i'm not going to disagree either. maria: what about unmasking and spying under obama administration? we're talking about this day in, day out. we know rand paul was spied on. he said it. he told us, that he was unmasked. lindsey graham was also unmasked. what is your take what went on and whether or not there was criminality here? >> so, maria i would love to give you my take on it, i don't have a take on that.
7:37 am
i don't want to talk to something i'm not prepared to talk about. maria: this is the moment people will be focused on that, james freeman. >> this is the question, whether mr. comey can come in, do what he wants to do, serve himself, drop a few bombs on the president and not discuss things he doesn't want to discuss. that is what a lot of american people would like these senators and mr. comey to discuss today. dagen: he will be used, expect jim comey to use robert mueller for him if he is asked anything specific about the on going russia investigation by the fbi. again it raises issue can he use mueller as to block him if he is asked about unmasking during the obama administration. maria: cherry-pick the questions he wants to answer. dagen: or i'm a private citizen, particularly looking see how he is pressed particularly by republican lawmakers. maria: jim, do you think this kind of questioning should be on the table. >> it should be on the table but
7:38 am
what you're talking about current investigation i don't think jim comey will talk a lot about that. you will hear about the conversations with donald trump. he goes through that painstakingly. he is quite a story teller, if you already when he testified in 2007. maria: you think he could hide behind as it relates to hillary clinton there is still active investigation and i can't discuss it? >> i do. i do. i absolutely do. maria: did he always keep memos? those memos that he wrote after the dinner with president trump, he kept a memo and wrote what trump had asked him? in your working with him, is this a regular thing that jim comey would keep memos after each meeting? >> that a great question, maria. i don't think he kept memos in normal course of things but he did with regard of donald trump. one thing i know about jim comey he has note graphic and phone graphic memory everything he hears he felt compelled to write
7:39 am
