example, willing to accept? 10% fraud? 5? what is the percentage? well, we're going to find out over the weeks ahead here. the committee's top democrat, senator gary peters, said new talk of electoral fraud is helping -- are you ready for this? -- russia. that accusation leading to this explosive exchange between senators johnson and peters. >> 50 people associated with the intelligence community during the the, after our hunter biden investigation and the revelations of the hunter biden computer said, oh, this is, you know, this is russian disinformation. now we find out it's a real investigation by the justice department. so it's just galling, and i i have to point out that the purr view yours of russian disinformation, hillary clinton's campaign, the dnc, the steele dossier, the ranking member peters accusing senator grassley and i of disseminating

spouting it again, which is why -- >> oh, come on. >> senator paul. >> judge starr, judge starr? lou: and there there you have just a few moments of what happened in that committee hearing. and russia disinformation, as senator johnson was suggesting, has become a tiresome democrat ruse and refuge for ignorance. you may recall 50 intelligence community members recently used it to dismiss "the new york post"'s bombshell reports on hunter biden's corrupt business deals. the ignorance of the left and, and their total lack offing integrity on further -- of integrity on further displayed today. senator tom carper joining senator peters saying it's time to turn the page on the election, put all of the corruption behind us, the lies. and the left today demonstrating they have no interest whatsoever in either beingty or
transparency -- integrity or transparency, nor do this any desire for the more than people to see whether their votes were counted in a free and fair manner. and it's not just the radical dems. the politically corrupt judiciary in this country avoiding every, every attempt of to have the courts examine evidence and to enforce the law. it is a sad, sad, infuriating period in our history. republican senator rand paul today called out the travesty of justice. >> we can't just say it didn't happen. we can't just say, oh, 4,000 people voted in nevada that were noncitizens and we're just going to ignore it. we're going to swoop it under the rug and say, oh, the courts have have decided the facts. the counts have not decided the facts. the counts never looked at the facts. the courts don't like elections, so i think stayed out of it by finding an excuse, standing or
otherwise, to stay out of it. but the fraud happened. the election in if me ways was stolen,9 and the only way it'll be fed is by, in the future, reinforcing the laws. lou: imagine looking to the future when this is still the mess before the entire country. the majority of those surveyed in poll after poll after poll distrust altogether this election and its results. we'll have more on today's hearing in the senate later in the broadcast. an all-star lineup of guests for you this evening. senior trump campaign adviser corey lewandowski is with us to take up the latest in the battle for the white house. congressman scott perry, who's been fighting tire willsly for the president and for justice in pennsylvania. we'll be talking with him about the radical left's push to install joe biden as president from the pennsylvania perspective. we'll tals be talking with

providing a new comment about federal investigations into husband son hunter biden's -- his son hunter biden's overseas business deals. here's what he told fox news' peter doocy. [inaudible conversations] >> i'm confident. lou: that was what he said. i don't know what he said either. well, joe biden says he's confident about his son's legal troubles. president trump is considering a special counsel investigation of the biden family corruption. and today fox news obtained a letter that further exposes the entire biden family's ties to a chinese energy company. for details now, we turn to fox news correspondent mike emmanuel in washington. mike in. >> reporter: lou, good evening. fox has obtained june 2017 correspondence between hunter biden and the chairman of cefc
company with hunter offering best wishes from the entire biden family and urging ming to quickly send a $10 million to properly fund and operate hunter's joint venture with the now-bankrupt firm. biden added: we are all hoping to she see you again here soon or in shanghai. fox told a $10 million transfer to the joint venture was never completed. allies of president trump are saying it may be time for a special counsel to look into hunter biden's business dealings, concerned a biden administration may not be interested in a criminal investigation. also today a prominent republican called out big tech for suppressing the hunter biden story. >> the giant corporate con dwhrom rates -- conglomerates censoring and suppressing news directly bearing on an election weeks beforehand, the most powerful corporations in the world -- facebook, twitter -- working with the democrat campaign to suppress legitimate reporting on hunter biden who we
now know is under federal investigation for criminal wire fraud, tax vegas, other things. >> reporter: democrats have not said much in recent days about the hunter biden probe, some suggest there's nothing to see here. >> we need to turn the page and move on. there are hundreds of millions of people in this country that need to be vaccinated not once, but twice. >> reporter: others just make the case that president biden will want an independent attorney general, but that is one critical postthat has not been filled so far. lou? lou: mike, thank you very much. mike e man with reporting. it's going to be interesting to see whether or not the republican party has the guts to stand up against such absolute corruption on the part of the radical dems, particularly those who want to turn the page, who want to heal after what they have done to president trump and the lies and the deep state's involvement in support of the democrats and, oh, yes, their
candidates. well, despite the troubles with his overseas dealings, hunter biden has a new career choice. artiste. hunter biden planning his first art exhibit at a manhattan gallery next year. his artwork is described as, quote, blowy, decorative the abstractions on japanese paper. biden told "the new york times" back in february that painting is keeping him sane. ah, art. well, millions of americans from the mid-atlantic and up the east coast are in the path of a major blizzard this evening. snow has begun to fall in new york city this hour, some places could see as much as 2 feet of snow in the northeast making the storm one of the largest in the region if, indeed, it materializes with its full force. up next here, a top aide for joe biden uses a absolutelying garre term to -- vulgar term to
attack republicans while applauding her boss' push for unity. we'll take that up and more after the break. unity, it's a beautiful word when it's sincerely uttered. congressman scott perry with us next. ♪ hey! yeah!? i switched to geico and got more! more savings on car insurance!? they helped with homeowners, too! ok! plus motorcycle, boat and rv insurance! geico's got you covered! like a blanket! houston? you seeing this? geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more. less sick days! cold coming on? zicam® is clinically proven to shorten colds! highly recommend it! zifans love zicam's unique zinc formula.
lou: breaking news now, incredible nw details emerging about the cyber attack by russian actors. the attack, by the way, against a number of federal agencies and departments and immensely successful, we are told but a number of experts. the password for solar winds which was the tool used by the hackers, they used the password solar winds 123. that was then distributed to 18,000 of solar winds' clients. well, a suspected client of solarwinds is none other than dominion voting systems. the ceo, however, outright
denied they ever used solarwinds before the michigan state senate. yet on part of dominion's web site, solarwinds is actually contained within the page's source code. we cannot resolve the conflict for you at this point, we will be talking to dominion to see what, what led to that result. breaking news now, one of joe biden's top aides, jen to mall dull loan are -- o'malley dillon, is under fire. she used a vulgar slur against republicans in talking about biden's call for unity. dillon said this to glamour magazine, quote: in the primary people would mock him like, quote, you new you can work with republicans? i'm not saying they're not a bunch of -- mitch mcconnell is terrible, i notice the expletive, and i deleted it. biden won the general election by appealing to the pluck's
sense of unity -- public's sense of unity. he he set out with this idea that unity was possible. oh, my goodness. my heart, be still. radical dem congresswoman maxine waters doesn't like congressman mo brooks and his challenge to the electoral college vote. she calls it the highest form of voter suppression. waters must have forgotten one little thing, that he did exactly -- she did exactly, exactly the same thing in 2017. watch as she desperately tried to get a senator to sign her objection to president trump's victory with former vice president joe biden presiding. >> i do not wish to debate, i wish to ask is there one united states senator who will join me in this letter of -- >> there is no debate. there is no debate. [inaudible conversations] gentlewoman will suspend.
lou: joining us now, congressman scott perry of pennsylvania, a member of the house foreign affairs committee, the house freedom caucus, and he has been fighting for free and fair elections in his great state of pennsylvania. and fighting hard. congressman, great to have you with us. electoral fraud, we have seen evidence of it, video evidence, we have seen empirical evidence of fraud. the issue is how much fraud was there, what was the effect of that fraud. can we answer any of those questions now a month and a half after the election? >> well, the problem, one of the problems is, lou -- thanks for having me on -- is that the courts haven't heard or seen any of this evidence of fraud, zero. there's not been one evidentiary hearing in front of the courts since the election. is so whatever we have, whatever's out there, we're certainly willing to have scrutiny, have it looked at from both sides, from all sides to determine if it's legitimate or not, but we can't eve get to the
courts -- even get to the courts. the courts refuse to hear it. you'll hear some of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle say, well, president trump has tried all these times and been denied because there is no evidence. that's absolutely not true. no evidence has been heard. there's zero, there's zero evidentiary hearings that have occurred, and so, you know, i guess the courts just don't want to provide a remedy, lou. what they're saying is often times they say, well, there's not enough to overturn the election. first of all, we don't know how much there is, we have no idea how much there is. and second of all, if that was the standard for law, like if somebody gets killed, if somebody's murdered, you can't change the outcome of that, but we still prosecute, rightly so, the murder orer. we still seek, investigate and prosecute the murderer. in this case we're saying you can get away with murder because we can't change the outcome. lou: and, you know, judges in this country have become quite
something they are reviled, they are not held in high esteem as they once were. the chief justice, john roberts, says there are no bush judges and no obama judges. he's flat out lying. everyone in the country now has a label that they're putting on the department of justice, the fbi, the federal judiciary is absolutely scurrilous in its in ineptitude and its corruption. it's clear. and the supreme court had an opportunity before the election to stop the madness and the corruption in your home state. >> yes. lou: of pennsylvania. and john roberts chose not to do so. and now to worry about whether or not the remedy would be appropriate and effective is nuts. this is a country, the american people are the victims here as well as president trump. there are more victims right now than those people will be, you know, deliberating over on the
supreme court for quite some time. >> certainly half the country, lou, doesn't believe the results of this election. we need to have trust in the fidel i few of our elections. and in pennsylvania we have two different classes of voters, two different set of rules, some that have to sign in when they come in to vote, others that can just mail in anything without, you know, without any guarantee of who they are. some counties are allowed to fix their ballots, some aren't, and the supreme court are fuses to take that. -- refuses to take that up. no court wants to take that up. we can't have two standards whether it's for voting or whether it's for anything under the law. lou: so let me ask you about a standard for the republican party. we can't have two standards. one party you know is lying. you know that we have one party that is working with the deep state to subvert the president, to overthrow a presidency through a special counsel, through an impeachment inquiry, both of which are farcical and baseless and which exonerated
this president but took up four years, and they tried to block even his election. now, and he was warning everybody from this summer on, early this summer about mail-in balloting and the fraud that the democrats would carry out against the american people. the republican party did nothing. where was, where was the republican national committee? where was mitch mcconnell? where was kevin mccarthy? where was the republican party and why doesn't the republican party have the judgment and the guts to actually react to what is a clear attempt to absolutely deny this president the office that they have worked so hard to drive him from over the course of the last four years? >> well, this should be easy for the republican party. right now all they have to do is agree with former president jimmy carter who in his report on elections said that mail-in
voting was ripe for fraud and should not be allowed in any case. now, in pennsylvania there was a case that went to the third circuit, and they said that -- or the third district, and he said that the case could not be heard because no one was damaged yet. and now after the fact now that the election has happened and people have been potentially damaged, we need to hear the evidence, the court says, well, now we can't, we can't listen to it based on urgency. we can't even discuss it. lou: it's too late. >> and the republican party just needs to continue to stay in the fight on every single inch of ground. that's, unfortunately, the way it has to go in our country. we cannot shirk from our responsibility to make sure that these elections -- this is a part of our reprotect. people have to trust the elections. lou: hell, everyone -- you know, congressman, everybody knows that except for the judges who haven't got the guts to stand up for what is right. >> we need people to have courage.
lou: we need to stand up for the constitution itself. i mean, it should start with the republican party, congressman. you are a -- [laughter] you are the exception to the republican party. i mean, i am so appalledded by that republican party leadership, i can't until you the contempt that i hold them in for their just -- >> yes. we just need to be courageous -- lou: apathy and indifference. yeah. >> yeah. lou: yeah. i would even take just responsible. how about that, just responsible. >> that'd be good as well, yeah. [laughter] lou: congressman -- >> a little responsibility, absolutely. lou: well, you're an exemplar of both, and we appreciate it. thanks so much, congressman. up next here, dems in disarray. socialist congresswoman aoc says chuck schumer and nancy pelosi need to go. who -- raise your hands -- who thought you would ever agree with aoc, but you do now.
we'll be right back, and we'll be talking with corey lewandowski about it all. stay with us. we made usaa insurance for members like martin. an air force veteran made of doing what's right, not what's easy. so when a hailstorm hit, usaa reached out before he could even inspect the damage. that's how you do it right. usaa insurance is made just the way martin's family needs it with hassle-free claims, he got paid before his neighbor even got started. because doing right by our members, that's what's right. usaa. what you're made of, we're made for. ♪ usaa
lou: breaking news now, texas and nine other states are joining to sue google parent company alphabet charging google with suppressing competition in the digital ad market. another group of states reportedly will file an antitrust lawsuit over google's search engine within the next few days. the department of justice filed a similar lawsuit in october. by the way, so far not much has happened, not much has happened when it comes to shutting down the oligarchy of google, alphabet, facebook, social media and big tech. it's a lot of talk and so far very little result. more signs of disarray in thed radical dem party.
socialist congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez says both nancy pelosi and chuck schumer need to be are moved. cortez warns, however, that quote: nefarious voices are even more conservative, as she put it, than the party's leaders could seek to replace them. well, those sound like the horns of a dilemma for the socialist congresswoman. joining us now, corey e lewandowski, 2016 trump campaign manager, senior adviser to the 2020 trump campaign, and it is awfully good to see you, and i'm sure everyone knows that corey contracted the china virus and thanks, lord, that you're fine and raring to go and back in the fight. it's good to see you. let's start with what the republican party is doing. i mean, i can't figure this out to save me.
i see some really great congressmen, i see -- senator ron johnson is a gift to the republican party. he's, he is. lating his president -- emulating his president. donald trump has taught republicans how to fight. now we'll find out if any of them beyond these few in the early stages of this fight really have the stomach for it. what do you think? >> lou, you're absolutely right. when with we look at the members of congress who have been fighting for this president over the haas number of years, jimmy jordan comes to mind, matt gaetz comes to mind, andy biggs comes to mind -- lou: absolutely. >> the members of the freedom caucus come to mind. those are the guys who have stood on the breach, on the wall to make sure donald trump's awe general da has been forced through the house of representatives. most of the time, lou, at the chagrin of some of the other republicans. on the senate side, mitt romney, the only president in modern history to vote for the impeachment of a president of
his own party. this isn't a profile in courage, this is a man who wakes up every morning and says how come i'm not the president. and when you've got fighters like ron johnson and rand paul fighting to get to the bottom of what transpired in the 2020 election cycle, we need more warriors in washington, lou. whether you're the governor of georgia, the secretary of state of georgia or others, the recourse for you will be at the ballot box. it will come swiftly, it will be justly, and it will be done in the primary. lou: and that is a clear, forceful threat. what is, i guess what i would saw is what's taken so long. you know, everybody in the -- not everybody, but most republicans put up with rinos. they talk about them like they do, you know, libertarians. they're just something tough deal with end when, in point of fact, they're democrats and not paying dues to the democrats. the republican party looks
awful. when you watch mitch mcconnell, he's done great things, he really has in judiciary and appointments. you know? merrick garland, think what would have happened if he hadn't stood up and are e fused to vote on -- refused to vote on his confirmation to even have him in the process. but he is milquetoast against the establishment, the donors. and i just don't understand what leadership is for republicans, because it isn't anything that leads to much in the way of results. >> lou, it's like donald trump was sent to washington, d.c. because the american people were tired of the same people making the same promises and falling on those proms. they sent -- promises. they sent donald trump to washington, d.c. to change the system, and if we believe what the haven stream media's now eling the us, that joe biden received more votes than donald trump and he's going to go back
to a washington that he's been in for 48 years and we think anything is going to change, then shame on us. our last line of defense, lou, right now if joe biden is confirmed to be the president of the united states is the united states senate. and that 's why the two seats in georgia are more important than ever. i'm going to be there tomorrow in georgia helping to make sure that we one so that the radical left awe general da doesn't move forward. and for the first time in my life, lou, i actually agree with aoc. they do need to get rid of nancy pelosi and chuck schumer. i agree with her. maybe we can join up and do a bipartisan bill on it. lou: i've got a question. has anybody in the republican party, have they done anything in georgia to change anything from november 3rd? because i can't find it. i can't find any difference in the way the mail-in ballots are being handled. i can't see any difference in the integrity of this election. and it looks to me like republicans are counting on a different result doing the same damn thing. corey, you're one of the people
making a big difference, i sure e hop you make a big difference down there on january 59. corey, good to see you. up next here, there's promise of a second china virus vaccine by the end of the week. we take that up with admiral bretty require here your daily dashboard from fidelity -- a visual snapshot of your investments, key portfolio events, all in one place. because when it's decision time, you need decision tech. only from fidelity. you need decision tech. unlike ordinary memory want supplements-ter? neuriva has clinically proven ingredients that fuel 5 indicators of brain performance. memory, focus, accuracy, learning, and concentration. try our new gummies for 30 days and see the difference. and now with q4 wrapping up, the north pole has to be feeling the heat. it's okay santa, let's workflow it.

lou: breaking news, the united states negotiating with pfizer to secure millions more doses of the china virus vaccine. it comes as china's pharma also announced it will buy 100 million doses of the pfizer vaccine as well. the u.s. biotech company moderna standing by to distribute 6 million doses of its china virus vaccine as soon as the fda authorizes emergency use, authorization expected to come by friday. the moderna vaccine has an efficacy rate of 94%. well, joining us tonight is white house testing czar and assistant the health and human services secretary admiral brett giroir. we are delighted to have you with us, general. we've got a lot to talk about, and i want to get to it quickly, but i also want to say something, if i may. you have handled yourself, in my judgment if i may say, with great distinction and class as
befits an admiral of any american in any way of life. you've been a real, you've been exemplary, and i just want to until you i salute you and thank you for your conduct and your poise throughout. it has not been easy, with know that, and we just want to say thank you. let's start with the vaccine. you've got to be thrilled. america's thrilled. you beat the odds, you beat all the experts and delivered. give us your sense tonight how it feels to you. >> well, thank you, and thank you for the kind words. i am just honored and privileged to be on the president's team. i'm here at the white house because we just finished a task force meeting led by the vice president, and i can tell you there's exextreme excitement not only by the fact that the pfizer vaccine is being distributed and is working right now for the american people, but it looks very promising the data are outstanding that the moderna
vaccine, 94.5% efficacy, 100% efficacy against severe infections that's gone to the fda tomorrow. we don't want to prejudge the process, but i can't imagine it not gotting authorized. and we expect next -- not getting authorized. and we expect next week to be immunizing almost 8 million people next week. how exciting is that. lou: that's amazing, and it's, it is just, it's stunning how quickly this has happened because now that it's here, and, you know, like all good americans, we expect the impossible. president trump is one of the few presidents in our history who's delivered on the impossible. it's, but as americans, we expect everything to happen quickly and this has. i can't, i can't recall what the quickest vaccine to market ever was. i'm thinking it was something in the neighborhood of a year and a half to two years. >> oh, it's my, it's much long,
it's much longer than that. i mean, the average vaccine time is multiple years. and let me tell you, the president promised the american people there would be a vaccine by the end of the year, and it's here. lou: right. >> and, yes, we talk about medical miracles and, look, i want as much duh vine intervention -- divine intervention as possible, but i want to will the you know this was a result of leadership by the president and the vice president. he picked the right people to reed -- to lead this. all bureaucracy was left aside. the funding was there. there were brilliant strategies, and so this was, this didn't happen by chance. this happened by leadership of the president and the administration. lou: i want to turn to this big blizzard that we've got now as you're distributing the -- also at breakneck pace -- the vaccine, vaccines soon i will be saying. the storm, how big a problem will it be for distribution?
>> well, as you might imagine, general perna, along with fedex and ups, have multiple contingency plans. and while were, of course, worried about that, we have had shipments already out this week that are all throughout the country. so that is going very well with very minor hiccups, and those hiccups have been replaced and redone in just lightning speed. in fact, it's kind of odd, everybody worries about the cold chain? the two vaccine boxes we had to replace was because they got too cold. that was replaced easily. look, we're going to deal with this, that's why we have the best lodge sticks in the country with general perna and ups and fed if, doing this -- fedex. sure, we're going to get it to the american people, 20 million people vaccinated within the month of december. lou: well, outstanding, ad miller. we appreciate it.

think, probably in the country's history. not a single evidentiary hearing anywhere in the country despite our lying eyes revealing to us fraud, the acknowledgment that there have been huge awe anomals and irregularities. how about these disputed ballots, for example, in maricopa county. can they do anything, and they -- and i'll leave it up to you to decide who they are, because with i really -- i don't know if it's the courts, i don't know who it is at this point. it's just sickening to watch what, how-less we are in the face of this. >> well, let the process play out. i think it's so interesting that the democrats for four years tried to undo an election, tried to get president trump out of office for four years, but they don't want us and the mainstream press doesn't want us to follow the law, follow the process, toll the fusion -- follow the constitution. it was justice ginsburg who said
back in 2000 the ultimate deciding day is january 6th when the house of representatives and the senate meet in a joint session of congress, and they hear about the electors from -- they certify the electors from the respective states and territories. let's let that process play out. i think it would be healthy for the country, lou, if we had a debate on january 6th about all of this, because the mainstream press certainly hasn't covered these hearings in these states where there's been such concerns about how the election was done. let's let it play out, and let's have a real debate on january 6th. i think that'd be -- lou, when you have over a third of the electorate think this election was stolen, that is not a healthy situation for your country. and yet the left says, oh, you've got to stop now, you can't have a debate, the president can't pursue his legal options, we shouldn't have the debate on the floor on january 6th. that is just wrong. lou: these people who have been leading the so-called hashtag resistance trying to destroy this president and his agenda for four years, the left in this
country and the democrat party itself saying that he was illegitimately the president of the united states. what kind of madness is in that republicans would even entertain the nonsense to saw, oh, yeah, we feel healed and unified with you. what are we unifying over and around? >> and they always accuse us of what they do. remember back in october when we learned, when bobulinski came forward, we learned about hunter biden, what dud the fake news say? they said it was russian disinformation when, in fact, they knew it was the truth. when, in fact, i am sure there were members of the process who knew hunter biden was, in fact, under investigation by the justice department at the very time they were saying this whole thing about hunter biden and his connections with china and these other countries was russian disinformation. and, of course, they accused the president of russian disinformation when there was nothing there. and it took all that money, all that time, three years for the mule or investigation, to prove that there was nothing there.
but they knew on the front end there was nothing there. so they always accuse us of what they're doing. lou: well, what are you all doing? because a debate on january 6th. as exciting as you suggest it might be, frankly, i can't stand another debate. i want to see action, i want to e so results, and i want to see a decision about the legitimacy of this election. >> yeah. i mean if, all we can do in congress is bring the truth forward, have the hearings, have the debates. we can't prosecute anyone. i wish, i wish that we would see quicker action from the juris disdepartment particularly with the durham investigation, but all we can do is bring that information forward for the american people. lou: yes, sir. and no one's better at it than you, congressman, we appreciate it. congressman jim jordan, good to e so you. stay with us, we're coming right back. did you know that geico's whole 15 minutes thing... that came from me. really. my first idea was
"in one quarter of an hour, your savings will tower... over you. figuratively speaking." but that's not catchy, is it? that's not going to swim about in your brain. so i thought, what about... 15 minutes. 15 percent. serendipity. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. less sick days! cold coming on? zicam® is clinically proven to shorten colds! highly recommend it! zifans love zicam's unique zinc formula. it shortens colds! zicam zinc that cold! janie, come here. check this out. let me see. she looks... kind of like me. yeah. that's because it's your grandma when she was your age. oh wow. that's...that's amazing. oh and she was on the debate team. yeah, that's probably why you're the debate queen.
