5:14 am
si as we are learning is getting worse, not getting better. >> seems like we were saying all along, jonathan, you included can we trust the numbers coming out of china? how bad, how contained is this virus really and overnight seems like the narrative was completely changed. >> that's right, lauren. lauren: do you think investors overreacting? >> economic cost as well, factories closed, you have the airlines not plying now in many cases till april, wynn resorts losing 2 and a half million dollars a day in profit and crash in commodity prices, oil prices, this is reverberating, so we haven't started to see it in stocks, keep in mind, lauren, nasdaq is way overbought, 18%

5:17 am
are advocating for wealth tax that wealthy people have a scrouge mcduck situation that people have a room of gold, that's why the wealth tax is not just bad for wealth people but bad for economic at large. lauren: you heard it here. you have a point, jonathan, thank you, good to see you. let's take a look at your money right now as we were just saying, markets are down this morning, we will see how it gets, s&p and nasdaq actually -- nasdaq is lower by 1%, that's 100 point to the downside coming off 3 days of record closing for the s&p and the nasdaq, after the app disaster at the iowa caulk use, nevada said it will scrap using the same app at its caucus next week, but it's what they are planning to use any better? blake: good news for wine

law. and the senate looking to curve president trump's war powers, democrats say they have the support to pass a bill which would require congress to authorize military force against iran, this in reaction to authorize drone strike that killed iran's military leader general qas south carolina em soleimani. president trump coming to attorney general's defense, slamming over roger stone's reduced sentence recommendation in russia probe. blake: griff jenkins with latest from washington. griff. >> good morning, blake and lauren, senator elizabeth warren joining on conversations, shock awes through washington. >> we can't let this moment go unremarked, what the attorney general has done, we should all be calling for the resignation of the attorney general, if he won't resign, remember, the attorney general can be
5:31 am
impeached. >> intervened in stone's sentencing facing 7 to 9 years under prosecutors compliance monday after midnight tweet by the president, barr and his team changed course requesting a lower sentence, prompting all four prosecutors on the case to resign, doj official says the president's tweet had nothing to do with the change but minority chuck schumer calling it a crisis. >> what is more swampy, what is more stinking than the most powerful person in the country literally changing the rules to benefit a crony guilty of breaking the law, we are witnessing a crisis in the rule of law in americament. >> the president defend attorney general blasting the treatment of former confidant. >> the fact is that roger stone was treated horribly and so were many other people, their lives were destroyed. roger stone for doing nobody knows what he did, frankly they ought to apologize to a lot of
5:32 am
the people whose lives they've ruined. >> the judge denied request for new trial, he'll set to be sentenced next week and there's always a possibility of a stone pardon, meanwhile attorney general barr agreed to testify before the house judiciary committee at the end of next month, blake, lauren. blake: the president has not answered whether or not he might pardon roger stone, griff jenkins in washington, thank you. here to talk more about this trial attorney misty, what do you make of all of this? >> saying that there was any impropriety on barr's part is political theater, look, everything that he's done has been within confines of his job, these are all powers that he has, first of all, judges sentence people who are convicted, it's not prosecutors who chose the sentence, but to say that there's been a review and to make a recommendation that's different than originally proposed, that's not impropriety, so to take this as far as the level of resignation
5:33 am
or impeachment is way too far in my mind. blake: the question, though, misty, whether or not the attorney general acted at the behest of the president, whether there was communication before, between the two, before the proposed sentence reduction was announced by the department of justice t white house was asked about this yesterday and here is what a spokesperson said, listen. >> the president wants the doj to ignore his tweets. >> the president of the united states is by constitutional definition chief law enforcement officer of the land, he has a right to have conversation with attorney general, he did not. >> white house saying that the two did not talk but also brings up the question, misty, did the attorney general get involved knowing that this is someone who is close to the president or familiar with the president and the president liked the actions that he was taking? >> great questions, if the president did weigh n he actually has that right to do
5:34 am
so, whether or not barr takes whatever the president says, not barr goes with him, he has that discreation, however, in reality what happened here, you the prosecutors who make a recommendation and that's a really keyword here, a recommendation and then you the defense attorneys -- brake blake wide did barr get involved, i guess, recommendations every hour of every year. >> a lot surrounding it. what the doj said what lead prosecutors actually brought before the court and recommendation they made was at odds with what they had breached and told senior management that they were going to do prior to making that recommendation, so, it seems like as far as what we know there may have been some sort of internal miscommunication about what was going to come before the court
5:35 am
which which would lead for barr to get involved. blake: letter that was sent to harvard and yale, the two premier institutions, maybe weren't reporting money from foreign nations that should have been, the new york times says maybe this is upwards of $300 million or so, how much trouble here could harvard and yale be in? >> they certainly could be in significant trouble, the law requires that any foreign aid, any foreign governments, any fortune contracts above $250,000 are reported and here according to this article it sound like the number is arestaurant -- astronomically more than that.
5:36 am
we will see what they have to say, but certainly could be problematic and there need to be a cleanup as far as what they really are supposed to be disclosing. blake: yeah, i'm told over at the white house, one of the bigger issues is money coming in from grants to professors and then making their way back to china and the u.s. doesn't know about this doesn't know that they are essentially going to professors and get thrown to china and seems like there's a much more fine-tune eye, money where it comes from and where it goes, misty, we have to leave it there, thank you. >> thank you. lauren: jeff bezos is living large. blake: tracee carrasco has the details. tracee: setting house-buying record in los angeles area, picking up the warner state, $165 million, he bought it from media mogul, price of wine expect today dip this year because of abundance supply of

why are you smelling your shoes, cost what i want to know. lauren: i wear crocs, they are ugly, so comfortable. i kind of like the kfc idea. blake: would you get them with a scent? lauren: totally pathetic. tracee. tracee: no comment. blake: we continue to take a look at u.s. futures, could be one of those days, coronavirus fears all across the world and this is really what's happening, you can see futures, nasdaq come off future lows but red all across the screen this morning, in the meantime president trump would rather take on former city mayor mike bloomberg in 2020 election, rather do that than go against bernie sanders, how would that work out, take a look. lauren: and is this ruining your
5:39 am
marriage? >> did you get any sleep? >> are you snoring while you're awake? lauren: we will tell you how snoring is starting a new trend in the real estate market. we will be back.

more? he has asked for... what? well he did say please (all boys): thank you, thank you, thank you.
5:42 am
blake: president trump making it known who he would like to go up against in the general election, so what would a trump-bloomberg matchup be like or trump-sanders. democratic strategist max burns, good morning to you both. appreciate you coming on in. the president said yesterday that he would rather go up against mike bloomberg, right? what do you make of it? >> my first reaction if you go back to his own experience f money determined the outcome of the election, hillary clinton or jeb bush would have had the nomination, i think he looks at the popularity, grassroots popularity that bernie sanders has and reflects the grassroots popularity that donald trump has, makes him a little nervous just about spending money, i think he will take that fight. blake: max, what do you make of it? >> it's hard to know what donald trump really thinks, he was a democrat who turned republican,
5:43 am
i do think he's definitely more worried about a mainstream candidate. blake: i think so too because if you look at where his attention has been in the last few days, mike bloomberg hit 15% in national poll and all of a sudden the tweets and a loft the attention from the president and the president's campaign started being directed at mike bloomberg and when you look at latest poll that came out from quinnipiac basically all top 5 or 6 candidates against the president and sitting at the top was mike bloomberg in head to head matchup against the president, you can see -- >> as biden goes down, bloomberg goes up, they seem to be running in the same lane in the contest. >> if you're not being attacked it's because you're not a threat and we have seen mike bloomberg really jump not just with president trump but with mainstream democratic candidates have started jumping on bloomberg as well. >> you have to get there first, you to win the primary in order to get to head to head matchup, where would you assess him right now as to where he actually
5:44 am
stands? >> i wouldn't count bloomberg out but hurts him when he's not willing to compete in every state, it's hard to say you want to represent the party when you're not taking donations from people who support you, when you're not contesting early primary. blake brake what do you make of it, adam, cnn put out a release saying basically they'll be interviewing in town hall setting all of the democratic top front-running candidates and they invited michael bloomberg but they haven't said that michael bloomberg will be participating in town hall and i read that and said why. >> i'm looking at bloomberg's ads, he's trying to introduce himself to people and i think that some people follow politics, bloomberg, surging, most americans still don't know who he is. blake: 25% in quinnipiac poll said they need to know more about bloomberg. >> super tuesday will be huge democratic primary and as yogie bear said it's getting later out
5:45 am
there and sooner or later they start winning races or not. >> joe biden. >> what can you say? what can you say? it's been tough for joe biden, he set expectations low in iowa and new hampshire and managed to underperform even those expectations, now we see polling out of south carolina that that fire wall of his is starting to erode a little bit, the question becomes when there's no excitement and no fundraising where does joe biden go? blake: south carolina a make or break for joe biden? >> absolutely, he has to start winning. it is over, absolutely over. blake: if he doesn't make it past south carolina you have to wonder where 10, 12, 15% goes, do they go to bloomberg? >> bloomberg is the one that benefits. blake: appreciate it. lauren: the market is certainly watching all of this and the

5:50 am
canceling flights, where is safe to travel? lee has reminded us that he has been to 193 countries, wow, you're the expert, someone like you isn't afraid to go anywhere in times like this, but i think of the poor passengers quarantined on the cruise ship, what happens to the industry? >> there's new cruise terminals being set up there and it's a very young industry in that part of the world and i would be weary taking a cruise in china and in asia, but if we are talking about caribbean, latin america, i wouldn't think twice. lauren: we had the cruise ship that docked in bayou, new jersey, there were people on that ship who were exposed to people that had been to asia, that doesn't worry you, maybe you're right because the cruise ship yesterday, all the news
5:51 am
were higher, we were scratching our head, carnival, by the way is selling off today, they did warn that they will take an impact because of this? >> yeah, of course, people will run no matter what because of people panic of stuff like that but because you've been to asia doesn't mean you have coronavirus or asian or have been to asia or doesn't mean you have it, it's a very small number especially in america, only 14 cases and probably going the rise but at the same time it's a very, very percentage of people overall, people should not panic, yeah, being on a cruise ship, you're kind of in a bubble there but at the same time the cruise ships know what they are doing, they take a lot of precautions. i've been on cruise ships when they had like a flu-outbreak before and they take a lot of precautions an this being more careful and, again, people should not change the plans but i would avoid travel to china. lauren: okay, popular spring break destinations? >> yeah, i mean, typical places
5:52 am
