The latest jobs report comes out tomorrow. What can you expect will bankratEcom senior economic analyst Mark Hamrick spoke with komo's? Tom hutler the job market, well as you write to little bit like a marathon runner. It's a it's gone past the usual finish line. But there is a. A continuation of the race. What do you see tomorrow? We don't know if there's going to be an ultra marathon for this economic expansion or not things have begun to slow down here lately. And we think that'll be the story with this upcoming jobs report. So the good news is the economy's continuing to roll right along. But we don't know the exact lifespan with respect to the February jobs report after more than three hundred thousand jobs are added in the previous month, we expect to have added about one hundred eighty thousand in February. And remember that we had a little bit uptick in the unemployment rate, mostly because of the partial government shutdown. So we'll get that back and that should bring the unemployment rate back down a little bit and the inflation picture under control, the which keeps the interest rates where they are for the time being in this case, it's really more Tom the risk of inflation on the MIR of inflation that would prompt the fed to do something. And so to the extent that we have all kinds of sort of currents that economies around the world are swimming against the US global trade issues, obviously, whatever's going to happen with Brexit. Whatever's going to happen with the US China trade discussions as well as some temporary impacts, cold weather or the first of the year, the shutdown now, obviously in the rear view mirror right now, it looks as if growth in the first quarter is going to be pretty weak. And so the fed not seeing any inflation pressures using that word patient with respect to possible interest rate increases. And so we just conducted our first-quarter economists survey Bank rate we published that yesterday and economists are really ratcheting down their expectations for rising interest rates, the majority do think the fed will raise rates this year. But in the previous quarter, they basically had said that universally that there would be two to four interest rate hikes this year, and that's just seen as completely off the table right now to me, it seems hard to even be able to possibly envision a rate hike here in the first half of the year. In the meantime, we as consumers should just. Kind of continue to try and save and improve our finances. That's the most important thing. Tom is I like to say having hailed from a midwestern state make hay while the sun shines on. So that means maintaining our professional networks as workers if indeed there is an unemployment spike will want to activate that as soon as possible. In the meantime, not be among the many Americans who were graph that they hadn't say for emergencies Nabi among the only forty percent or actually to Nabi among the majority of Americans who cannot pay a one thousand dollar or more emergency expense from saving.

Defense official says no American troops have withdrawn yet from Syria, but some military cargo has been pulled out there two thousand troops working in Syria area. Well, now that former Donald Trump joining Michael Cohen has agreed to testify publicly before a house committee next month. Are we learning anything more about what he might say we go live to Washington DC in Washington Post reporter Matt's Pataki for the latest good afternoon. Matt how are you? Hey, I'm good. Thank you for having me. Hey, you bet. Do we have any more information about the hearing by the oversight and government reform committee next month? Well, the one piece of information we have is somewhat. Disappointing were kidding hints that he might not really be able to talk about Russia related stuff that chairman of that committee seems to be still working it out with Muller about what Cohen can testify about that won't sort of step on Muller's toes. And then the chairman of the Intel committee who served the Russia proper investigation is in his committee. He said look that stuff is going to have to be behind closed doors. So I still think it will be a very exciting hearing. I mean, Michael Cohen was the president's former lawyer talked lovingly about being the president fixer. He knows where all the bodies are buried, but he's probably not going to be able to say a lot on Russia at least from the indications. We're getting so far today and given that what does the house wanna hear from him? I mean is this lane groundwork for possible impeachment or what? Well, I think what they probably want to hear from him about these payments to women to sort of keep quiet about alleged affairs with the president during the campaign that led to Michael Cohen pleading guilty to a criminal charge, and and a combined with some other criminal charges. He ultimately ended up being sentenced to three years in prison who actually report to prison a month after his testimony. I lawmakers want to get to the bottom of that. We've heard a lot about that in court. But certainly there are still unanswered questions about sort of the specific knowledge than Michael Cohen says Donald Trump had about those payments to specific directions that were given. And I think they just want to, you know, want to know exactly what culpability the president has here. And what sort of the Democrats is again to game of what political nightmare. They can cause for the president. With that information. We're talking with Matt's up Petoskey from the Washington Post. Matt what is Cohen half to gain from testifying Cohen wants to tell his story. And you could see that after he was sentenced. He went on George Stephanopoulos. This show or went on on the morning and said of laid out some more details about the campaign finance stuff, and repeated what he had said it his sensing that he was sort of six things for Trump. He was covering up Trump's dirty deeds. I think this is a story that he wants to talent he probably sees congress as a good venue to tell it this way, he sort of can't be accused of just sort of doing a media tour where he can lie all he wants without consequence. He'll be under oath again when he testifies before congress, and that will lend some credibility to his story, which he clearly really wants to share. He talked at length at his sentencing hearing he didn't need to do that did the mediator afterwards. As I mentioned, he just wants to sort of get his story out there. Lot to develop of course between now and win. The testimony starts on Capitol Hill, and you can read more online at Washington Post dot com man's up. Petoskey? Thank you for your time today.

Three hundred of our citizens are killed by heroin alone. Ninety percent of which floods across from our southern border. Yes. Ninety percent of heroin does come across the southern border. But almost all of it comes through legal ports of entry and a border wall would not stop it. And about that campaign promise, I guarantee you folks that Mexico is going to pay for the wall. The wall will also be paid for indirectly by the great new trade deal. We have made with Mexico, but that is false. There is no evidence. The president's revised NAFTA agreement would do that. And congress still needs to approve it. How much more American blood must be shed before? Congress does its job.

Bent on curbing its power will. Yes, according to a new report in the Washington Post authored in part, by Rene Merle who joins us on the KOMO Newsline. Renee, how are you? Great. Thank you for having me. Thanks for joining us before we get into the details of the story. And what you've discovered I briefly describe what the consumer financial protection bureau is all about what are they supposed to do. Agency, that was created after the financial crisis to protect people average people financial companies, otherwise they police the mortgage is that you can get the credit cards, the tech stage or checking account's overdraft fees, all the consumer finance issues that came a hot button issue after the financial crisis were taken care of by this agency, the agency has been criticized by as we know about the GOP. So what's happened since the new administration took over it installed its political appointees to run it. What's happened? Is that you've seen that the number of cases, they number? PP is going after a company has dropped by more than half. At the same time the number of complaints that you're getting could about bad act actually, building up and also this is a fairly. Seventeen hundred people but you've seen about ten percent turnover in the last year with the Trump administration's take over the agency what has been their explanation. Rene? Have you had any feedback from either the agency leaders of the White House? They're just doing what they're supposed to do. They say that before the Trump administration was too aggressive that it was too hard on financial companies that it asks for finds that works that it was you know, that it needs to be reined in could strain. And that's exactly what they're doing their thing that we're trying to follow the letter of the law not put the legal boundaries. No it agency in part by they want to cooperate with the financial industry more than the you know that. During the previous administration where there was more obviously right after financial crisis the administration Aaron. Clash and now the Trump administration says we're taking a different tone is it unusual for a new administration to stack. The odds against an agency say doesn't agree with or it has problems with. Always a swing when. Action comes in. But what's unusual about what's going on with E S P? Because the newer agency lessons ten years old. But also being done right now ball Dany by somebody who didn't want to exist. It called it a joke. He said that it was it didn't exist that he actually voted for legislation that would have gotten rid of it. This is a little bit more extreme a chef. Then we would usually see I've talked to numerous people within the agency. Who said look, you know, we expect there to be some changes when the new administration came in. But what's happening now, it's so much more than you would typically see when they're the turnover administration. You can read more details online at Washington Post dot com, by Rene Merle.

Now, President Trump says he's prepared to impose a twenty five percent tax on an additional two hundred sixty seven billion dollars in Chinese imports.

President Trump has ordered the Justice department declassify some of its big findings in the Russian election meddling investigation. Why? Washington Post national security reporter, Matt CEPA tusk is on the story and joins us on the KOMO Newsline. Good afternoon. Matt. Hey, how are you doing? Well. So obviously law enforcement tends to hold evidence close to the vest during an ongoing investigation. Why does the president want the stuff out? Well, he says it's in the interest of transparency, and he points to conservative lawmakers, essentially his allies pushing for this material to be released. I think Democrats would say, well, it's not really just a transparency move. This is about discrediting the Muller investigation the special counsel investigation. These documents have to do with the investigation of Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election, the investigation of Donald Trump's campaign. And so what it seems to be that he's doing is on the ceiling or declassifying certain parts that his allies Spink will let them throw shade on this investigation and say, hey, this has really murky origins has has really sort of CD origins. And whenever Muller concludes. They will be able to say, well, we can't really believe him. Remember, all those documents. We showed you that discredited. This probe your report in the post says the president has shied away from pulling the trigger. So so while of a sudden now. Yeah. This this has been sort of a long running dispute mainly between conservative lawmakers and the Justice department of the White House has got involved the of just continuously pushed for the department to release more and more documents about the Russia probe and every time. It's like the Justice department sends a little bit conservative lawmakers say they're happy a couple of weeks. And then they want more in each time. Either get materials they say, oh, look at this. This shows this Russia probe is really bad or they don't get materials. And they say look the Justice department is trying to hide died something I think what has happened now is they just sort of nearing an impasse. The Justice department has given everything it will just give when lawmakers ask and they're just going to say, no. But if the president who is in charge of the Justice department order them to declassify things, they can't say, no. So this is sort of an escalation of things, and I think President Trump got involved because conservative law. Makers had said to him publicly. Look, we need your help. They're not bending anymore. We're talking with Washington Post national security reporter Mads appetite skiing. Matt now that the president has ordered the release. What happens? I mean, obviously, this stuff's got to be scrutinized by intelligence agencies before secret information would get out at great question. And even the Justice department. I think is wrestling with what practically to do. So one of the documentation is this Pfizer foreign applic- form warrant application and Carter page, a former Trump campaign adviser that one's a little easier. There have been portions of that already released the Justice department sort of already been through that one. So they'll just go through the unreleased portions, and then potentially release low those, but there are other things that are a little trickier. Like whole reports of interviews with subjects not subjects important people. In the rush investigation, the president wants to release tax messages of Jim Colmey of Andrew McCabe. Peter Struck of Lisa page of the Justice department official name, Bruce or related to the Russia case. So presumably the Justice department will have to go through all of those messages and see which ones are Russia related which ones are private which ones should be released. So there's a lot still to be worked through just from a practical perspective to determine like, hey, what can actually be put out in response to this.
