Market this morning expected to open higher. This Monday morning I head of the all important first quarter earnings reporting season. That kicks off tonight without call all the major banks reporting later on in the week. All those stories coming up with highest in the morning in Futures expecting a gain in Dow about 70 points.

With me this morning, Fox Business Network Dagen McDowell, Recon Capital Kevin Kelly, and Fox News contributor Georgette Mosbacher. Good to you see everybody? Thanks so much for being here.


BARTIROMO: Happy Monday. Got camp missed lineup this morning. Trump campaign senior policy adviser Stephen Miller is with us. Fox new Senior Judicial analyst judge Andrew Napolitano, former Mississippi governor and former RNC Chairman Haley Barbour stops by. And Nancy Pelosi daughter Christine Pelosi is a Clinton superdelegate. She will join us as well. All that coming up, you don't want to miss it. So, you'd stay with us.

First though, our top story this morning, the fight for delegate, controversy in Colorado after Ted Cruz took all 34 delegates despite of being no primary or caucus in the state. Overall Trump is still leading with delegates 743 on the Trump side. Cruz now has 545 delegates. Trump also holding a commanding lead in the upcoming New York Primary race with the latest poles giving him 54 percent of the vote, Ted Cruz now with 15 percent of the vote.

Adam Shapiro standing by at Newcastle New York with the latest from the other side of the aisle. Adam good morning to you.

ADAM SHAPIRO, FOX, CORRESPONDENT: Good morning, Maria. Hillary Clinton will be here for a fundraiser later this morning. But let's get right to the delegate count where she stands versus Bernie Sanders. This is the total delegate count the superdelegates plus the pledged delegates. She has 1,756 delegates to Bernie Sanders 1,068 this after the Democratic caucus in Wyoming. Each got seven delegates from that. Even though Bernie Sanders soundly defeated, Hillary Clinton, he's now won eight of the last nine contest against Mrs. Clinton.

The Democratic Party pole according to Fox News, she is beating him in New York. 53 percent to 37 percent but were still a week eight days out from the New York Primary and that's one of the reason she is going full-court press here in places like Newcastle.

Later this morning there will be a "Conversation with Hillary." There going to be a lot conversation today. This afternoon she will be in Port Washington, New York for a conversation on gun violence but she's also launching as of 6:00 a.m. this morning a new ad campaign. Take a quick look.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He says we should punish women who have abortion.

DONALD TRUMP, (R) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: There has to be some form of punishment.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That Mexicans who come to America are rapist.

TRUMP: They're rapist.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And that we should ban Muslims from coming here at all.

TRUMP: Total and complete shutdown.

HILLARY CLINTON, (D) PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: Donald Trump says we can solve America's problems by turning against each other. It's wrong and it goes against everything New York and America stand for.


SHAPIRO: Now you're hearing that add that she is turning her attention to Donald Trump. Bernie Sanders launching an ad today that's turns his attention to New York are saying he's the real New Yorker and this will resonate with Republican voters who might like Ted Cruz when he talked about New York values.

Bernie Sanders in his ad today is saying value forge in New York, Brooklyn born native son. Maria as I throw it back to you that breakfast that fundraise in this morning, $500 for the cheap seats, $1000 dollars mid- level, $2,700 for a preferred seat which you get breakfast with Mrs. Clinton. Perhaps you get toast for that as well. Back to you.

BARTIROMO: I am thank you Adam Shapiro in New York this morning. Back to the Republican campaign trail, Republican front runner at Donald Trump lashing out over the weekend over the delegate system. Watch.


TRUMP: This is crooked system folks. This is a crooked. I'm not a fan of Bernie. I couldn't care less, you know, as far as I'm concerned. I couldn't care less about Bernie. But he wins and he wins like me. I've won twice as much as Cruz. I've won 1 millions of millions of votes more. We've got a corrupt system is not right. We're supposed to be a democracy. We're supposed to be you vote and the vote means something. We're doing fine. We should have won it a long time ago.


BARTIROMO: Want to bring in right now Donald Trump presidential campaign senior policy adviser Stephen Miller. Stephen, good to see you, thank so much for joining us


BARTIROMO: What about this delegate situation? I mean clearly on the Democratic side of the race with the Hillary Clinton superdelegate. It seems people are questioning the fairness of it.

MILLER: A lot of people are learning for the first time just how much the delegate system is in some ways disenfranchising your voters. You can think of a more dramatic example of that than what happened in Colorado. I mean, you have Ted Cruz who styles himself I guess more recently as a man of the people, crowing about a delegate wins state that canceled. I repeat canceled its election. There was not an election in Colorado.

BARTIROMO: And yet the delegates went to Cruz?

MILLER: And, you know, I mean just to give a sense to the magnitude of this. Think about this as an example. Let's say that you are a soldier in Colorado who served overseas in Iraq to provide Iraq with a safe and secure election, right. Remember everyone with the purple fingers a few years back. That same soldier let say that she returns to Colorado having given Iraqis an election. That soldier in Colorado, she can't vote for who she wants to be her president.


MILLER: Cruz should be demanding an election in Colorado if he is a man of the people.

BARTIROMO: Odd taken.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: But Stephen, if you running for the president, presidency the United States you know this going and it does seem now with the hiring Paul Manafort and getting the campaign together that from the Trump campaign was not prepared for this. That's not the candidate that he is put out there. He's the leader. He is the CEO. But he didn't have his ducks in a row up until recently.

MILLER: Well, there's two separate questions. One question is should there be an election? Should one person have one vote? The Trump campaign says yes, the Cruz campaign says no. Then as the second question of OK operating within a system where people don't vote, what kind of strategy should you have? And obviously we're going to do the very best we can.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Well, you should have set that last year when you started run in faith hey, we're getting a -- before the primaries and caucuses ever started, right.

BARTIROMO: Yeah, Stephen is doesn't work that way.

MILLER: But here's the bigger context on that. Is that Donald Trump has already beyond anyone's wildest dreams to fight any expectations somebody could have set for candidacy. He's up against the donors, the special interests, many in the media, many in the party, many in the establishment. That's a remarkable thing. And so, people have to realize as you're going through that process you're constantly going to have to continue race you're game and race your game and racing your game.


MILLER: But none of that changes the fact, none of that changes the fact for the people of Colorado were disenfranchised.

BARTIROMO: One of the reasons I think the people are disenfranchised is because they are not sure about the policy Stephen. Let me get to policy for a moment because we keep talking about sort of the things on the outskirts and not necessarily policy. We had my MacGuineas on last week. She's from the committee for a responsible budget.

And she said Donald Trump's plan in terms of wiping away $19 trillion in debt in the next eight years does not add up. She said that the tax plan is incredibly costly that you're his senior policy guy Stephen. I'd like you to take us through his economic plan and how it leads to creating jobs and how he expects to eliminate $19 trillion in debt in eight years.

MILLER: Right well, one of the most important things to understand about our debt situation and about deficit situation is that welfare spending primarily that is the largest item in the federal budget. You have a fall to different welfare programs. It's about a trillion dollars a year including state contribution to those programs. More than we spend on Medicare, more than we spend social security way more than we spend on defense.

Getting people back to work off of welfare will do more to reduce the deficit than any other single program you could imagine. And so, if you reduce the tax burden substantially in the regulatory burden substantially and you keep jobs and welfare in America and you bring back overseas capital and on top of that you change our trade deals to create a full employment economy. You're going to save $100 billions a year just on welfare expenditures alone, not even counting the trillions of dollars you're going to get in your revenues.

So I think that economic recipe is going to do more than anybody else to reduce and ultimately pay down the debt.

BARTIROMO: So, what kind of growth which you expect them from the economy? Because Maya McGinnis when she was doing the numbers she said "Look in order to get these numbers to materialize you need 16 percent economic growth." Is that the kind of projections you have 16 percent economic growth? Where at 2 percent .

MILLER: We're not forecasting 16 percent economic growth. But I do think that this is a very big difference between us and Senator Cruz. Maybe one of the most important differences. Senator Cruz is a demagogic supporter of cheaper goods are always better.

If china can devalue their currency, bring something in cheaper that's good. But what Ted Cruz doesn't understand is that growth is driven in part by net exports. The gap between how much we're export in how much we importing.

Right now that gap is nearly a trillion dollars a year. That subtracting depending on what estimate you look at, a full percentage points from GDP year, after year, after year, after year, after year. It's not a coincidence the slow growth era really began in 2001 after China entered the world trade organization and we begin seeing this huge spike in our annual trade deficit. Nor is it a coincidence that last quarter we had anemic 1 percent growth and we also notched in 2015 are largest ever trade in goods deficit with China.

BARTIROMO: Yeah, that's a great point Stephen and you've been so articulate in terms of the issues around immigration which is I want to stay on trade for a moment here. Because most people out there would say, "Look, free trade creates economic growth". How do you push back to those people that are questioning your stance on for example, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, TPP trade deal?

MILLER: Right. And to me this is the difference between demagoguery in ideology versus fact-based reasoning. We had decades of data to review in looking at out trade deals. So for instance in the late 1960s you can look at the share of people who are working in and you can compare that to today.

So, the percentage of men age 25 to 54 who are not working has tripled since the 1960s when we began off shoring jobs and that really of course spike after NAFTA and after China. And then you can also look at wages. Wages have been stagnant really for four decades now.

The middle class is also 10 percentage points smaller than it was in 1970. So metric after metric after metric you seen a shrinking and a installing that the middle class if our current trade ideology worked. You would think you'd see that in the conditions for working people instead the opposite is happened. Who's the economic powerhouse by contracting Europe, Germany. What does Germany do?


MILLER: Germany maintains a strong manufacturing base. Is there any German today who says "I wish we'd spent all of our manufacturing to China?"

BARTIROMO: Right. See you in real quick, and then there are policies around terrorism. I want to get your take on what John Brennan from the CIA said in terms of listening to Trump it should he win the presidency. Listen to this.


JOHN BRENNAN, CIA DIRECTOR: Absolutely. I would not agree to having any CIA officer carrying out waterboarding again.


BARTIROMO: How about that. The head of the CIA saying "he's not going to do waterboarding if President Trump directs him.

MILLER: Well, I believe that the historical record clearly shows that the waterboarding that occurred to a limited number of people after 9/11 helped ultimately avert a number of terror attacks and was essential in disrupting the al-Qaeda terror network which really took a huge hit in the years after 9/11. Now of course that mission of defeating al-Qaeda is not done.


MILLER: Nor of course defeating ISIS. But I think the evidence in the record its clear that waterboarding producing valuable, actionable intel. But the other half of this and another big difference us and the Cruz campaign is that Trump has said "We should have a temporary pause on migration from these countries to begin improve our security screening methods". To us that's just common sense.

BARTIROMO: Great we got -- Stephen, great to have you as always, thanks so much.

MILLER: Thank you.

BARTIROMO: Stephen Miller. We'll be right back.


BARTIROMO: Welcome back. A beloved figure in New Orleans was killed over the weekend. Cheryl Costone with the story in the other headlines. Cheryl Casone with the story in the other headline. Cheryl.

CHERYL CASONE, FOX BUSINESS: Well Maria., retired NFL football player Will Smith was killed by a gunman over the weekend. Smith a prominent member of the New Orleans Saints Team that won the NFL's Super Bowl back in 2010. Police said that Smith was killed by a gunman who rammed his car into Smith. Near the French Quarter, his wife shot in the leg, the suspect Cardell Hayes arrested at the scene is bond now a $1 million.

Police are trying to determine a motive for this, there maybe a connection between a lawsuits that Hayes filled against the police in 2006 over the shooting of his father. One of the officers name in the suit reportedly had dinner with Will Smith, the night of that shooting so, we'll keep you posted.

Two 19-year-old college students shot and killed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Police said the female victims were fatally shot during a gun fight between two men. A 22 year old suspect has been charged with attempted 2nd degree murder and illegal use of a weapon.

And this guy really has to be hungry? The guy you're seeing on the screen there broken to a Five Guys restaurant in Washington D.C. early Friday not to steal money but to make himself a burger. Police say the suspect follow the delivery guy into the place and then waited till he left before going inside. And then he apparently made himself a cheeseburger, got some water and he left. Yeah, anyway, he must have been hungry or drunk.

Anyway, and finally this Maria, loyal costumers of NetFlix are getting a big thank you from the company with great hike. Costumers are currently pay $7.99 a month for the standard H.D. service, going to pay additional $2 starting next month, about 17 million subscribers can be affected by the price hike. They raised the price of the standard issue plan Maria to 9.99 for new members last year, so you want your house the cards and a orange new black. You're going to have to pay it. Back to you

BARTIROMO: And I do want it all.

CASONE: And they also into stealth great high because they said last year "oh it's only for new costumers" then now whammo (ph) 17 million people get hit with this end.


BARTIROMO: All right. Thanks Cheryl.

Still to come forget the Cronuts and the Raymond burger. There is a brand new food craze taking over New York City. We will tell you why this calory praised today. We'll leave you hungry for more, back in a minute.


BARTIROMO: Welcome back to VSP global. The largest division care company in the country with more than 80 million members. Now it is looking to innovate and make glasses the ultimate wearable device announcing an investment in Vizzario a startup focused on using data to track eye related issues.

Joining us right now is VSP Global CEO Jim McGrann. Jim good to see you. Thanks so much this morning .

JIM MCGRANN, VSP GLOBAL CEO: Good to see you Maria. Thanks for having me.

BARTIROMO: -- and you brought you brought with some of the -- one pair of glasses.

MCGRANN: A pair. Yes.

BARTIROMO: Tell us why these glasses are sp are so special?

MCGRANN: So, for us we're working with Vizzario and other companies to develop the wearable technology into the frame itself. So, in this pair of glasses you can't tell just by looking at it but the built-in to this temple is a wearable device similar to a fake date or devices like that the people use to wearing in today.

BARTIROMO: What are we track by the way --

MCGRANN: So, you can track all the standard steps and calories, and all this things but when you wear your glasses this area of your body you're able to track so many things like your gate how you're walking. So, for athlete a coach will be able tell if someone is favoring one side or another maybe get them out before they injure themselves. For someone dealing with Parkinson's or M.S. and they are learning to walk again, you're able to track that data and understand how their gate and their walking is being impacted in either improving or not and put a plan in place.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Will it -- is it advanced enough to say that I have an infection in my eye starting? I just went through -- I had a corneal ulcer.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: If I caught it earlier my doctors told me it would have been sever.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Will this be able to tell me that there is an infection starting in my eye?

MCGRANN: Not this for that but it think what the most important thing there is they need to be more an awareness that people should go get an annual eye exam. You know, we were train when we were children that you go to the dentist twice a year or your teeth fall out. Right?

We need to have that same type of training because what a doctor can determine by examining your eyes every year, all kinds of diseases that you'll find before a general practitioner. Early signs of diabetes, high cholesterol just from an annual eye exam so, every, every important to go get that (inaudible).

BARTIROMO: So, how would you characterize the eye business right now?

MCGRANN: Its -- the eye business is expanding and we are continuing to grow as an industry. It is again I think back to awareness and access. What we're focus on as a company is the idea of be the eye business to individuals instead of just be to see.

We want to be .

BARTIROMO: Business to consumers, yeah.

MCGRANN: Yeah business to consumer. We want to make sure we are able to provide eye care and eyewear in as many channels as we can basically what the consumers demanding.

By 2020, 50 percent of our 80 million members are going to be millennial. We need to makes sure that we are cover all those channels and that's why the focus on be the eyes.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Your luck glasses are cool again number one.

In terms of collecting all this information and data on individuals, I don't want all that information about me out there. I don't want it in the Cloud. I know what it -- I don't want you tracking it.

MCGRANN: Absolutely. So, it's a completely voluntary program, right. You have to make a choice that you want to be involved with your doctor, with your medical teams on this idea of contextual health.

Basically enriching your electronic medical record with personalized information for what you do day in and day out. But it's completely voluntary.

Any of the data that would be use further would have to be anatomized and aggregated and your information would be safe but again still it's your choice.

BARTIROMO: And it's nothing dangerous about having all the technology right here?


BARTIROMO: By my brain.

MCGRANN: Nope not that, not from what the testing is show went and I know there is always been that scare with cell phones.

BARTIROMO: Yeah, that's why ask.

MCGRANN: This is different types of technology .

UNIDENTIED MALE: Really quick. Would be license out to designer right so -- people want fast the forward devices right, so would that happen?

MCGRANN: Absolutely, great question. Our goal would be to develop this and how to be able to build -- we built into all types of eyewear not just sports eyewear.

You know, we work with Nike, and Calvin Klein, and Ferragamo and Chloe. We do all the design and development of their eyewear. We'll be building these types of wearable devices into their eyewear as well.

BARTIROMO: Really good stuff. Jim, great to see you.

MCGRANN: Great to see. Thanks for having me.

BARTIROMO: Thanks so much Jim McGrann joining us there at VSP. We'll take a short break then Hillary Clinton subway troubles aren't going away anytime soon especially when there are hilarious recaps of her experience taking over the internet.

We'll show you "Saturday night live" tape it was pretty funny that's next.

And then later an epic Masters meltdown. How the 12th hole mistake and cause the defending champ, Jordan Spieth nearly a million dollars. Back in a minute.


MARIA BARTIROMO, HOST, MORNINGS WITH MARIA: Good morning. Welcome back. I'm Maria Bartiromo. It is Monday, April 11th. Your top stories right now at 7:30 a.m. on the East coast.

The Republican racer likely headed toward a contested convention. The candidates fighting for votes and delegates ahead of the New York primary a week from Tuesday where Trump is still in the lead.

Ted Cruz sweeping delegates, meanwhile, in Colorado over the weekend. Trump blasted the system. But Georgette Mosbacher is with us today, and she explained the situation.


GEORGETTE MOSBACHER, FOX CONTRIBUTOR: I've been a delegate to four conventions. And, no, it is rigged, all right? However, it is the way it's been. There are rules.


BARTIROMO: We will talk about that.

Questions, meanwhile, over delegates on the Democratic side of the race. Hillary Clinton losing to Bernie Sanders in Wyoming, and yet she earned the same numbers of delegates as he did.

Plus, the meltdown for the Masters for Jordan Spieth. It all started at the 12th hole.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Between the bunkers, so (inaudible). Oh, my goodness.

BARTIROMO: Yes, that painful. A look at what went wrong and what's going through his mind this morning.

We're taking a look at the booming business of craft beer. "Men's Journal" with their top five picks. You'll want to stay with us for that.

Meanwhile, take a look at futures indicating a higher opening for broader averages on Wall Street. We're expecting a gain of about 60 points on the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

It is the beginning of the first quarter earnings seasons tonight. Earnings are expected to be down in the first quarter.

Hillary Clinton addressing the e-mail controversy that continues to loom over her presidential campaign. The Democratic front-runner dismissed the idea that she will be taken away in handcuffs for allegations over her private e-mail server, saying there is no chance that will happen.


HILLARY CLINTON (D), PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: They live in that world of fantasy and hope, because they've got a mess on their hands on the Republican side. That is not going to happen. There is not even the remotest chance that is going to happen.

But look, they've been after me, as I say, for 25 years. And they said things about me repeatedly that have been proven to be not only false but kind of ridiculous.


BARTIROMO: President Obama also addressed the scandal on "Fox News Sunday" this weekend, guaranteeing that there would be no political influence in the Justice Department's investigation.


PRES. BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department or the FBI, not just in this case, but in any case.


OBAMA: Full stop. Period.

WALLACE: And she will be treated no differently --

OBAMA: Guaranteed. Full stop. Nobody gets treated differently when it comes to the Justice Department, because nobody is above the law.


BARTIROMO: Joining me right now, Fox News senior judicial analyst, Judge Andrew Napolitano. Judge, good to see you.


BARTIROMO: He was pretty adamant about that answer.

NAPOLITANO: Yes, he was. And he's facing a lot of speculation, because information is leaked from the FBI and from sources around the FBI that the evidence against her is compelling, strong, forceful, clearly enough to present to a grand jury and probably enough to get an indictment. So if that doesn't happen, that means that somebody way high up at main justice, probably the Attorney General herself or, worse yet, someone in the West Wing of the White House decided we don't want to indict Hillary Clinton right now.
