5:08 am
we've never been asked by the chinese government to remove any content and we would not do so if asked. former employees at tiktok say the opposite. former tick toke employees say moderators in china had the final say over flagged content and ignored employees that voiced concerns with beijing over decisions to block or penalize videos. tiktok has 115 million downloads in the u.s. alone, a lot of them kids. congress is concerned that tiktok will exploit the data. >> the threat isn't just to children's privacy. it's a threat to our national security. we don't know what china can do with this kind of social data in aggregate, what it tells china about our society. they can see who we talk to, what we talk about, where we congregate, what we capture on video. >> reporter: sense r tore holly said he -- senator holly says he expects someone from tiktok to show up and answer questions under oath. so tiktok is up against the

whistleblower's identity are despicable. >> reporter: this comes as the white house says acting chief of staff mick mulvaney will not testify in the impeachment probe on friday. back to you. lauren: thank you very much. xerox is reportedly considering an ada -- a takeover offer. tracee: they may make an offer for hp. the cash and stock bid would be at a premium to the company's $27 billion market cap, according to the wall street journal. the board reportedly discussed the possibility yesterday but there's no word yet if they will follow through on an offer. another deal is getting closer to getting done. the fcc approved the t-mobile, sprint merger. the he vote came in at 3-2 with the commission's two democratic members opposing the deal. a group of state attorneys general have filed a lawsuit to block the deal, claiming it will

5:17 am
years. i've had this interview virginia roberts. we would not put it on the air. i was told who is jeffrey open epstein, no one know who this is. that is a stupid story. then they found out we had the allegations about prince a andrw and threatened us. it was unbelievable what we had. we had clinton, we had everything. do i think he was killed? 100%, yes, i do. he made his whole living blackmailing people. >> reporter: in response, robak tells fox news, quote, i was caught in a private moment of frustration, i was upset an important interview i had conducted with virginia roberts didn't air because we couldn't face sufficient evidence to meet standards about her allegations mias.my comments about prince aw and her were in reference to what virginia roberts said in that interview in 2015. abc news' explanation, quote, at the time not all of our

do. ashley: the dow industrials and nasdaq are pushing deeper into record territory on the hopes the u.s. and china will roll back some tariff as part of a partial trade deal, all of this as the earnings season rolls on. what do we make of it all? doug flynn, certified financial planner, joins us now. good morning to you, sir. okay. the beginning of the year, we came through a miserable december, i want to go back in time a little bit. there's was also gloom and doom. this is it, the good times are over, the economy is going to go down, the r word came you up everywhere. hasn't happened. why was the demise over-hyped like that? >> i think people were discounting the earnings. even though earnings is slowing, it's still growing. that's the difference. they see a slowdown as this turning into a recession but really it was just that if you have 7 or 8% earnings growth, you followed up with 2% earnings growth, that seems terrible but it's still moving forward on top
5:20 am
of what it had before. so i think that's the slowdown. ashley: we can't forget the fed raised rates since then and since have been vilified for that and they've made three cuts and they've gone in reverse. what do you make of the earnings season so far? is the bar so low that it's really not a good indicater? >> they definitely lowered it very low and then we seemingly are coming in as less bad. it's not great but this quarter was not expected to be great. if you look at forward earnings, the next quarter and the quarter after, it's very likely that we'll get back to an all-time high in earnings. so this is sort of an expected downturn. but the downturn was a little bit less than people anticipated, so that's the good news,s is it's less bad. ashley: hanging over the market every day, every minute with every headline is the latest on the trade negotiations between the u.s. and china. if we get a partial deal, what does that do to the markets? if we get a full deal, are we going to go the next leg up?
5:21 am
>> i think so. i think that you have the opportunity for -- we've been anticipating this and i think -- i've been for a long time saying i don't think we get a real deal until after the l election when china knows they'll have to deal with president trump for another four years or not. ashley: this is going to drag on, you think. >> i think a real deal will drag on. do we get the partial deal? i think that's possible. it's a way for both sides to look good, safe face and roll that into the election. i think the market is anticipating that a little bit. it will be a boom to the market and be a further positive into 2020. ashley: from huer w here we coe new records? >> there's no doubt that new records are definitely on the horizon. ashley: we'll leave it there. optimism, we love it. lauren: say want him to keep talking bought th because the ns completely unchanged. brett larson is making his way into the studio, hijacking your home devices or even your iphones, the crazy way hackers are getting into your personal devices from outside your home.

lauren: facebook has revealed that as many as 100 software developers had improper access to your personal data. ashley: we do this story every day it seems. brett larson from fox news headlines 24/7 joins us with ate details. >> we should prepare the mad lives folibs for the facebook h. this is becoming very common, so
5:26 am
much so you would think maybe they would do something about it. lauren: they did, i thought. >> exactly. it's happened so often, was it a week ago, was it a a mont month, but in the last few months we heard the same story, facebook was holding user data on a server that developers had access to. that's what's happening now. 100 different developers had access to data so that's going to be your user profile, your information. good news is it's not anything super personal. we're not talking about credit card numbers or passwords or anything like that. but we are talking about yet another data breach on the social media site. the social media giant. you know, it comes about a year and-a-half after the cambridge analytica scandal which we're still kind of talking about and it's almost become this like hacker fatigue, you know, where we hear these stories, we go okay. i'm actually curious if people
5:27 am
are even upset about it anymore. lauren: i don't think so. >> of or i or if they figure m putting it out there. ashley: no expectation of privacy at all. speaking of security breaches, can our home devices be hacked? i would say the answer is yes. but with a laser? >> with a laser -- lauren: freaked out. >> this is an unusual story. 15, $20 laser pointer was all it took plus a $300 piece of hardware to connect to the computer. the barrier to entry is a little higher. what researchers were able to do was mimic audio waves in a laser that they were bouncing off the microphone. so silently they were able to trigger your google home, your alexa device, whatever your smart speaker is, into performing tasks. and the tasks could be something as simple as turning on or off a light. it could be something as worrisome as if you have a connected garage door that your garage door would open up with a
5:28 am
laser. in one instance they were able to trigger something from about 300 feet away. lauren: this story makes me want all the smart things out of my home. >> on the plus side to this, the researchers gave this information and you how they were able to do it to all the hardware makers, so the good hackers are in on this. we might have a fix for this where it potentially wouldn't be able to happen. lauren: iphone, getting a major makeover, maybe? >> patent filed by apple, they want to do a wrap-around screen of the iphone, it would be like you have the zip rer from r from outside the building, the ticker would roll around your phone. sounds cool. sounds gimmicky. lauren: i want to know how much it will cost. it has a cool factor. >> it does definitely have a cool factor. ashley: they have to do something new. >> it's going to sprout legs. lauren: 5 5g2020.

5:33 am
but not naming challenger elizabeth warren being consistent dehe sendinconnedsen- condescending and eliseist. he says it's representative of eliteism and working and middle class people don't share. if you were as 1345r9 a smart a, you would agree with me. what does it mean for 2020 and the middle class vote. ing mjoining me now is kaley mc. what do you think. >> it seems that biden is ramping up his attacks on warren even though he didn't name her directly. he's going to attack her any way that he can at this point. and he's doing so by trying to also win solidarity with middle class voters who might view warren as elitist. it seems like he's trying to put on that middle class joe persona right now.
5:34 am
whether they're going to buy it or not. lauren: do you think the middle class aspicer to the american -- aspires to the american dream and when they hear comments from jamie dimon criticizing warren for vilifying success and you have comments from ray dalio saying capitalism in its current form is broken, that has to sway middle class voters to trump, to biden, to someone else. how does this work? >> absolutely. you look at the proposals that warren is putting out, you have wealth taxes, medicare for all which would inevitably result in taxes on the middle class itself, these things are polarizing. she's betting on being able to win over the radical left base, but that's not going to be enough to score her an election. so, yeah, if you look at the map in 2016, a lot of these blue collar voters, a lot of the middle class workers went from trump instead of hillary for the exact same reasons. lauren: that's exactly what
5:35 am
hillary clinton said at a book event. she said the democrats need to elect someone who could win the electoral college. who is that candidate? >> yeah, as of right now it looks a lot like either biden or trump. the new york times actually had a pretty interesting poll this past weekend that narrowed the race down to about three playing fields. you had trump versus biden, trump versus sanders and trump versus warren. in a contest against biden, biden actually won in most of the six key swing states. but when the candidate was warren, trump beat her in five out of the six swing states. what we're looking at here is really it's going to depend on the kind of platform that trump rolls out throughout his 2020 campaign, and if he can win back those blue collar voters that turned out for him the first time, he has a strong shot. lauren: what we saw last night in virginia with democrats sweeping both local houses of government and perhaps to some extent in ke kentucky, what do u think that means for president trump in 2020. >> it means there is a blue reaction to trump's presidency.
5:36 am
in virginia, you did have a lot of voters turn out and now they have full control of the state house. so that's pretty important. but it's not necessarily reflective of the swing states where the election is really going to play out. virginia has leaned left for a long time so this really shouldn't come as that much of a surprise. the states to really look out for are michigan, arizona, florida, those states where blue collar workers tend to be migrating towards or there's lots of industry present, those are the states to look for. lauren: some of those are tax exile states as well. kayla, thank you so much for the time. lauren: let's get to a fox news alert, relatives of the family murdered in mexico blaming one drug cartel for the deaths there. they believe the gunman ambushed their car thinking they were a rival gang. ashley: griff jenkins joins us live from washington with more on the 13-year-old boy who saved six kids from the gunfire. >> reporter: here's a possible major development by the way and
5:37 am
this is just breaking this morning. reports out of mexico that an r arrest has been made, sonora's justice t departmen department o the facebook pages, working to confirm this but it would be a significant development. we are getting details about what happened. at 9:30 in the morning, three wives depart the mormon community in he thre three suvs. one of the vehicles gets a flat. they return to town and get male relatives to fix the tire. after that, the women continue on their journey and drive into an ambush and a hail of bullets. the men see the you attack from a distance. as we learned in the attack, a 13-year-old boy who survived walked five miles to get help, protecting the surviving siblings. the victim's uncle praising his heroism. >> it doesn't surprise me that in the face of such a horrific
5:38 am
occurrence, that he was able to keep his wits about him and do what needed to be done to save his family. >> reporter: president trump calling for action against the cartel, spoke with mexico's president yesterday who told trump that declaring war on the cartels has not worked in the past, it is not an option. one gop senator disagrees. >> the only thing that can counter act bullets is more and bigger bullets. the united states may have to take matters into our own hands. >> reporter: this comes as violence is rolling out of control. car l he telcartel turf wars hae increasingly bloody, homicides up 69% in the first half of the year. ashley: griff, thank you very much. take a look at your money right now. you could say oh, yeah in the premarket looking for some direction. check that out, essentially flat across the board. we'll see how that pans out when

5:42 am
ashley: show bis buzz, netflix premiering its latest story today. the company plans to show the movie for just three weeks, deciding to forego the traditional theater release. netflix has used this strategy for the irishman to make sure it would be eligible for the academy awards. lauren: so is that what it's all about, winning an award. joining us now, pete hatchell. what do you think? >> netflix is not in the business of making theatrical movies and doing theatrical releases. they're a tech company in the business of streaming movies to a mass audience. this whole exercise of releasing movies is about branding and there's no greater branding in movies than to get an oscar. and they need to release things in theaters to get an a oscar. there's a rule that the academy
