joining me now is the constitution isal law attorney ken, ken good of you to be here. good morning. >> good morning. >> why did he choose to express this opinion now? the attorney general? >> i think hets people to know that he's noting going to be influenced by the president's private opinion. he's the attorney general, he's a legal responsibility to prosecute these cases. and he wants to avoid the appearance of any impropriety. >> barr attorney general says that monday night he had inkling that reduction that sentence roger stone sentence needs to be reduced he was going to take care of it tuesday morning but the president's tweet happened overnight . and this is how barr said all of that played out when he first learned it be. listen here real quick. >> once tweet occurred the question is well -- now what do i do? that is safe there as you can see but barr said what do you do at that point sort of
5:15 am
illustrates how disruptive these tweet can be. so who's the the audience for barr here? is it the president bank stop or in thes say look i did something right? >> look the democrats are going want to a ten on spike no matter what and fact of the matter is he's a prosecutor and prosecutors swear in oath that oath is to seek justice only their cases asking for a 7-9 year sentence for a guy with no criminal record this is his first offense. e he's served several presidential administrations, and had a long distinguished career it doesn't make sense that you would ask for this much time on a guy like this. >> do you think roger stone sentence should be what? >> look, if i'm a defense attorney. so i'm going to say this man has been convicted after trial several felonies. but those felon felony you know little harm that came out of those crimes and i think he could learn his lesson by -- >> should be what? >> probation. but you know, you know it is not going to be that. judge will split the baby and i think mr. stone is probably going to --

5:17 am
though, to this chinese company? >> we know what commerce department can do but what about the want of justice? >> realty is they can get people on the board executive officers they can bring them up on criminal charges. but the reality is, china doesn't actually get citizens through united states so we're not able to do much about it. >> ken. got to leave it there huawei story just beginning in the middle of it as well. ken, good of you to come on in. appreciate it. >> let's take a look at futures right now green on the screen winning week for the stock market despite setback yesterday dow is up 37 s&p up 5 nasdaq gaining 27 this morning. retail sales coming up in just a bit. but trump economy is booming, and despite what some 20democrats tell you we have a new report that says yes you're getting retcher but how rich. coming up. enough to spend on flowers hopefully today, and if you with thought val toons day was the biggest day to eat out. think again. the holiday that means big bucks

5:25 am
consumer, and nice to see more millionaires out there being made. : president is calling jr. jive five mega. microsoft, apple -- google, and amazon. but when you hear that the average 401(k) balance tops 112,000s if you can circle square for a second, how do democrats that are running for president say and argue that there are income inequality? sm yeah so this is i'm always a little bit sympathetic having been close to catholic priest myself with this over the caring tribe that wants us to worry about income inequality but not a new thing in america but always been an issue and there's a fight going on for soul of the democrat party right now. between socialism and those who are concerned about bernie sanders, and interesting to see how this all a pans out. but income inequality is not new and i don't necessarily think that work is a four letter word. i think a lot of us are living a lot longer we're living better and probably going to have to
5:26 am
work a little bit longer especially for those of us who didn't save maybe as much as we should have to get ready for retirement we may have wanted. >> earlier voicing some concern that the gains in stock market to the second highest close in history had for the dow and s&p 500 and nasdaq that the breath of the rally just wasn't broad enough in your opinion. and we do get key data today retail sales and siewrm sentiment that's how americans feel about economy that's if americans are spending our money. do you expect those reports to continue to be robust? and how does the crowe that virus fit into the back drop of all of this when will we if we with see that come back these numbers? >> i do think we see parking lot michigan sentiment today around 100 or maybe a little bit less and retail numbers continue to be good because american consumer is improving balance sheet and the there spend and that side of the economy is strong and manufacturing dipping down a little bit. but i don't think we see the corona virus yet be an issue. i kind of put in a recent blog
5:27 am
just to give a historical perspective from the sars and bird flu issue that these things have a negative impact in the short-term. but longer term, market trade on the fundamental. >> thanks for joining us this morning. >> my pleasure. >> still to come here on fbn:am two states down and appear for moment that bernie sanders is the democratic front runner some lawmakers, though, not really to follow the lead or the fallout they fear from a sanders led ticket. would you cross the political divide for love? what americans are putting first in their love lives to politics and dating profile. uh-huh. i was shocked. our retirement plan with voya gives us confidence. so we can spend a bit today, knowing we're prepared for tomorrow. wow, do you think you overdid it maybe?

some democratic lawmakers worried over bernie sanders lead in early voting states and they're fearing that democratic socialist could cost them their seats come november. >> aishah has more on the state of the democratic party. aishah. >> good morning, lauren and blake, yeah so democrats don't just want a democratic president. they want to keep their seats in congress as well. and there's growing concerns even pan pick you could say in congress that bernie sanders may not deliver. i think he could be challenging in parts of the country that we have to win in order to win the presidency and win a majority in the senate i think we should be run on agenda that can get us 55 votes in the senate. another thomas freshman democrat from a swing district told us it's bad. we aring having conversations about how to deal with this. even ao c admits her guy might have to surprise on far left policies hike medicare for all. she told huffing ton post a president can't wave a imagine pick wand and pass any
5:32 am
legislation they want. the worst case scenario we compromised deeply and we end up getting public option. while the chatter about bernie gets louder house speaker nancy pelosi once again trying to shush her party. >> this is not just because some people may be speaking out about not liking one candidate or another that's a democratic way that's politics it's a messy business. sanders has caught wind of all of the talk and he says that he's here to fight the republican and a the democratic establishments. >> if we are going to defeat trump as we must -- we've got to have to getting working class people back into the democratting party and get young people a lot more involved. now senator sanders needs 19091 delegates to secure the anonymous for the democratic the party. he only has 21 right now. that's one less than mayor pete. so we're still a long ways away.
5:33 am
lauren, blake. >> a long ways to go several months to go potentially here aishah, thank you. so how worried should democrats potentially be? let's turn to republican strategist youssef, and democrat strategist marshall cohen good morning to you both. >> happy valentine's day. >> happy valentine's so marshall i'll start with you if you're one of those 30 democrats in a district that president trump won in 2016 that the trump campaign thinks could flip in the house in in 2020, and bernie sanders is at the top of the ticket. >> you're worried? >> i think what's important is that as democrats what unites us is big as what divides us you've seen democrats can go part of this country and win i think if you look at democrat govans you can see they represent 288 electoral votes across this country. and blue state and purple states and red states, and even last year during all of the talk of impeachment, and president trump's shenaniganseses in washington you thought --
5:34 am
>> not going to mention the name bernie sanders so circle back to that question would you be worried? >> no i think democrats are going to run on expand access to health care and improving education, and growing jobs, and i think all of our nominee potential nominees are beginning to focus on the kitchen table issues. i think when democrats do that they can win anywhere and i think we have recent electoral success to prove it. >> joseph president said earlier this week that he would rather run against michael bloomberg than they would bernie sanders. do you believe him? look, i think right now president trump is in the pretty good situation. i think he's ready to run against either bloomberg or bernie sanders. i think the reality is that democrats spend all of their time talking about 2019 and 2018 victories forget that candidate that won those races are the policiesing being proposed by somebody like bernie sanders. somebody who really ignores fact that we have 236 million americans walking with around with jobs today that didn't have jobs when president trumping took office. while democrats like to talk about that as crumb that would reminding people that these
5:35 am
individuals were too pour to bank four years and now be able to support their families and that is ultimately what people vote on in november don't poll on it here in early states. >> of course a caucus tomorrow in nevada. and it's somewhat of a wild card because to you don't know where things stand there's not a lot of polls out there marshall one of the last polls is fox news poll from last month, and it showed that joe biden was at the top and amy clop char and pete buttigieg combined where do you think things stand now? >> i think great about our con test is voters get to say into the democrat nominee will be and we've had two early contest in iowa, new hampshire, both breaking 2016 turnout records showing the excitement. we obl have nevada and south carolina coming up in next couple of days and in 19 day we're going to have super tuesday where 15 states 34% of delegates are awarded so,
5:36 am
obviously, lots to discuss in who is up and who's out but i think our field is shows democrats are excited to vote. >> you mentioned that excitement i didn't hear you say 2008 excitement this would be barack obama level. >> i think you've seen two states i think we have a lot to go here. i think you're going to see ton of turn yut and mention 2018 and 2019 successes, turnout was a huge factor in that as well as flipping counties and places where donald trump won in 2016. i think democrats have a path to success in 2020 across this country. >> joseph i'll ask you to do something that you don't the to on this valentine's day is put on your hat what do you think happens in nevada? >> i think you have to throw out all of the polls numbers i think by the time joe biden got to nevada, the the black votessers and historic voters that he was planning on supporting him are already hitting biden button on the candidate so truth is right now in a dilemma and difference republican faced on candidates that are going to stay in too long which allows because they
5:37 am
want to give out parption trophies to all of the candidates because they have a new pro delegate rules that's why i think bernie sanders having the ability to be ahead of the polls right now and by and large favorites to be thom knee right now. >> remindinger, though, chaos that you talk about same thing that democrats for saying about republicans four years ago -- flip this time around different i think is donald trump got to leave it there. youssef marshall thank you to both of you. >> thank you. was that agreeing to disagree. i think a lot of people are doing that because you might be looking for love in all of the right places get it politics actually flooded -- online dating profiles after a the 2016 election. pugh research piengdz that religion race, and politics are now all of the essential parts of online dating profiles, in fact, we're seeing the word trump not democrat republican, the word trump in the first couple of lines of onis line
5:38 am
dating profiles so we asked singles if they would cross party lines for love. oh that i have to say no to that ma makes life very hard. >> shouldn't bring it up at all and you lean to respect each other and each other's opinion. >> i'm open. open mind so yox. who you think, who you are, doesn't matter. doesn't matter. but it does matter people put at top of the profiles 50% of people are -- the word trump. >> here's what i don't understand when it talks about trump. the president going to be in office either one year or five year that's only one of two things that can happen. love -- should last forever. right so why should trump or any other politician matter? but are we enforcing echo chambers in how we choose to date somebody? shouldn't you be open-minded? >> yeah you should, of course. not and i would understand if it was like democrat or republican
5:39 am
or polls or something is maybe something that you would stick to for a while but one -- one candidate or one -- >> it is just trump you love him or you hate him eharmony has 10 million online profiles and 50% of them have word trump or at least they did right after 2016 and a lot of people say gotten worse since then. are you ready for 2020? >> it's here i don't think we have any other option. right -- it's right in front of us. >> i know. i know. >> going to be a long ten months. celebrity couple or couples who do have differenten opinions there's james and mary m.a.d.d. lean and republican and she's in white house and husband -- obviously does not like the president -- wishes she was. who else is there? >> i don't know. off the top of my head those are two come to mind. maybe this is 2002 that you need to date someone with a same political belief as you. >> me, wouldn't with make a difference to other people -- trump at the top.

mitigates itself over next couple of months, china purchases could rebound by end of the year but i think -- i think what trump administration is reallying looking at is the trade deficit is that the united states has with china. so as long as that's not increasing over next couple of months, you administration mighe about tiebl give them some leeway you know maybe push deadlines become a couple of month here and there. >> good question mark so in the meenl time new pus charges against chinese tell come giant huawei ails as of racketeering conspiracy to steal trade secrets wire fraud, can you have the u.s. going against huawei, corona virus and the trade deal phase two can all of this operate in separate laneses or is that just not possible? >> i think it is possible over last couple of years as trade talks happened there was a lot of action taking bit u.s. government against huawei.
5:45 am
we manage to get a deal signed so as things progress with huawei they negotiate with phase two. i think they can be taken in separate lanes. the united states has identified huawei as a national security concern. so that's going to continue, and trade deal or not, i mean, the issue is with huawei are going to continue to-- continue to unfold whether phase two happens or not. only all three of the issues involve matter of whether we trust bay judge to fulfill promises to give us information to not steal trade secrets. important questions riley thank you for joining us. rnl thanks for having me. meantime still to come here on fbn:am. more than 100,000 people expected to flock to south florida. for the 79th miami boat show and our own cheryl casone is there what do you got coming up, cheryl? reporter: blake and lauren, good morning, i'm here in sunny him, and a i'm at the miami international boat show,
