we could certainly respond in kind with a cyber attack. you have two different hacking issues. one is coming from the criminal gang that's been spreading ransomware and now bloomberg is reporting the republican national committee has been hacked by the so-called cozy bear which is the russian government itself. you recall it hacked the democratic committee just before the 2016 election so very serious accusations this morning. a real test for biden who said he told russian president vladimir putin hacking our infrastructure and certainly the political parties is off limits and that was just three weeks ago. now you have these two major hacks. complicating this is the republican national committee denies the systems were breached. the third party company based in fremont says only that it's aware of an attempt.

that said americans like to blame or credit the president as prices go up and down. president trump had low prices because demand cratered. the economy's better. the prices are up. opec is squabbling about how much to produce. president biden said he wants opec to pump more oil but same time he's been restricting oil exploration here in protected lands. he shut down the construction of the canadian xl pipeline. none had direct effect because none have been finished but he wants one thing from opec. another from america. the president travels to suburban chicago today. covering that on twitter. you can find me there. >> all right. thank you. looking for a perfect fireworks photo in los angeles leads to an up close encounter with a bear. >> hey! hey! >> ryan duke was with a group of photographers when the wild animal showed up.
