6:04 pm
staffers and a $16.4 million luxury home for his parents, stanford university professors. congressman hill, you sit on an oversight committee. is d.c. not about the little guy anymore? >> isn't this disgusting? and what's more disgusting about it after complaining about crypto finance for four years the democrats are on the take for over almost $40 million of campaign contributions from bankman-fried and ftx affiliates. i hope they give all of that money back before we have our oversight hearing in early december and try to get to the bottom of what is clearly an outrageous misappropriation of funds and fraud by bankman-fried and his colleagues and it's pretty sad that his parents are professors at stanford law school. what does that tell you about the quality of the law school? elizabeth: reportedly to the congressman's point, congressman smith, the parents are reportedly trying to give the deed back. even bought condos in the swanky
6:05 pm
bahamas resort where tiger woods has his annual positively tournament. seven democrats sit on house financial services. maxine waters caught blowing a kiss to bankman-fried in december of last year. he gave out more than 40 million to democrats, right, congressman smith? that is more than 200,000 or so that republicans got. >> liz, he was the second largest contributor right behind george soros to all democrats. you're talking about tens of millions of dollars, giving that money with probably the expectation that the democrats wouldn't look underneath the hood of his corporate dealings? well maybe, maybe he was just able to take care of that? that is why the democrats did not do oversight. think about this, in the house ways and means committee there has been less than 15 hearings over the last go hearse. three of those hearings was all about giving tax breaks to the wealthy political donors. of course they will not give
6:06 pm
oversight, having a aggressive oversight on someone who has the second most amount of money of all donors. elizabeth: what will you do? to congressman smith's point, we broke the news last week, congressman hill, he set aside $4 billion, more than $4 billion of loans out of investor money for himself and his cronies. half a billion dollars for him. half a billion for his founder, his cofounder rather. congressman hill ftx tentacles ran deep in d.c. who is watching out for the little guy? who is watching out for the watchdogs? he packed his board with former cftc commissioner, acting chair under obama, former chief operating officer of cftc. so what are you guys going to do about this? >> liz, thank you, for your persistent investigative journalist attitude because you've been great on this topic. really do. you've been first on the news of
6:07 pm
this item. we have a hearing in december, i hope we use our subpoena power not only bring ftx to the table but anyone advising ftx invite the chairman of the sec, gary gensler, have all the documents of all the meetings he had with ftx or ftx advisors because american investors we're involved in losing money in this bahama beach party of bankman-fried. we want to get to the bottom of it, to make sure he is held accountable and that the regulators are health askeddable here for american investors. elizabeth: will you, sit tight a second, congressman smith. are democrats on house financial services giving you a hard time about this? what are they saying now? >> on what basis? elizabeth: congressman hill, sorry. >> i'm sure they will have one. look i'm sure they may have some but look, they have been very skeptical of crypto and yet they took this campaign contribution. that is what i find hypocritical about it. but this hearing is a joint hearing that is called by
6:08 pm
patrick mchenry of the republicans and maxine waters of the democrats. let's make it the starting point of getting to the facts around this ftx collapse. elizabeth: you know, to what congressman hill is saying, congressman smith, cftc, that is his company's regulator. he lobbied and weakened government oversight there. he wanted only cfc, not the sec to regulate him. he wanted to clear all trades through the cftc were no guardrails or safety nets. gary gensler apparently taught with bankman-fried's father. there is a lot of weird insider cronyism here, you know what i mean? >> liz, those points you brought up, i will agree with congressman hill. you're doing an incredible job investigating this but all of those points you brought up is exactly what needs to be called up in oversight hearings. these people need to come before congress. after january 3rd when the republicans have the gavel,
6:09 pm
whether it is financial services, whether the ways and means committee, whether the ag committee we need to call them all up in all areas of jurisdiction and get down to why and how this happened. elizabeth: you know, i appreciate you guys, that is very kind and generous of you. you know i covered corporate accounting scandals for "the wall street journal" in the '90s. it feels like we're back here at the same place, congressman hill, where, you know, political donations come in to these politicians that sit on the oversight committees tasked with doing oversight and then these companies complain to those politicians and weaken the oversight of the market regulators. let's listen to terry duffy. he runs the cme, the market regulator for derivatives. you will see congressman dusty johnson. he is about losing his mind. he was on our show with us earlier in the week. watch this. >> he didn't know the difference between regulatory capital and margin capital t made me laugh. dismissive when it comes to a guy like that. can you imagine the human being
6:10 pm
could have done to our country and the world? people literally, literally were turning a blind eye to it. it is absolutely an embarassment what went on. i knew he was a fraud the i met him. it was quite easy to pick out. >> i'm just so frustrated, we had more time for defunding the police or inflation reduction act, green new deal but speaker pelosi is not willing to put bills i support on the floor. it is amazing to me sam bankman-fried has been honest about this, liz. he said this, you know what? if you say the woke and enlight edged things the left will celebrate you if you don't have anything on your balance sheet. that is terrifying. we have to do better. >> here's the thing, sam bankman-fried, his activity took off when joe biden, he really started to get aggressive in 2020, 2021. his company started to losing money during the bullish crypto market run. it was losing money.
6:11 pm
so the congressman hill, first to you, what were democrats doing this whole time while this thing was blowing up? >> well, patrick mchenry, our ranking member on the committee worked, tried to work for over a year to have a bipartisan digital assets bill where we define digital assets and then we define how best to regulate them and he has been forestalled by maxine waters until this past september when she began to work constructly with him on a stablecoin, digital assets bill, now still in the works but the point is, we have an enron moment in 2022 with the collapse much terra, luna, other things are in jeopardy, now the collapse on ftx. we have to get a handle on it and handle on it now. we have to have a hearing in december. elizabeth: there is contagion, two billion in losses in crypto potentially. what have democrats been doing
6:12 pm
this whole time while this has been ramping up? >> liz, the last two years, complete democrat one party rule in washington they have been doing three things. they have been benefiting their wealthy donors. they have been building the bureaucracy and they have been bankrupting our economy by spending trillions of dollars. if you donated to the democrat party you were benefiting under the one party democrat rule. that's the policies they pushed. >> feels so bad. the little guy feels the system is rigged against him. congressman hill, it can't happen again. congressman hill and smith. happy thanksgiving to you both. that was a great interview. appreciate you coming on. >> happy thanksgiving. elizabeth: to you too. pushback what are being called wild claims by the white house covid czar. more on the cdc now saying the vaccinated make up the majority of hospitalizations and government emails reveal dr. fauci, he knew more about the wuhan lab in china than he let on. plus the latest on the deadly

6:20 pm
country have given criminals the right to do what they want. they have emboldened them. they have handcuffed the police and it needs to change. elizabeth: so how do you break this cycle? how do you break this cycle of criminality? i mean reuters is reporting that retailers from coast to coast are now battening down the hatches for the holiday shopping season. we're talking walmart, target, jcpenney, walgreens. they're installing surveillance cameras and security guards, locking down more items to stop shoplifters. will that stop this? >> well i hope it does, i hope it's a step in the right direction, because there many major stores out there that are actually, have a policy in place where they're not even stopping anyone. they're taking away those baskets at the front door to fill them up with goods because perpetrators were using them to fill them up with goods to walk out. i hope steps that are taken are actually a step in the right direction. what we need to do is take the handcuffs off of police. we need to take back our streets. we need to take out of office
6:21 pm
rogue d.a.s who refuse to enforce laws. elizabeth: to your point, there is also this, this could be a debate-changer in washington. law enforcement coast to coast, sir, increasingly link rising crime in u.s. cities with collapse at border, due to drug gangs doing shootouts. we like your reaction what white house press secretary had to say about this. watch this? >> the republican party has no plan, they do nothing except do political stunts. we're stopping fentanyl before it even makes it to the streets of the united states. elizabeth: okay. here's the thing, the cdc data, the cdc says, 66% of the more than 107,000 overdose deaths were driven by fentanyl. those overdose deaths are most in u.s. history. not sure who is advising the press secretary toy to say what she is saying. dea say drug cartels are killing
6:22 pm
americans with fentanyl at catastrophic, record rates like they have never seen before. >> liz there is no stunt. i actually, you know, someone who has been a new york city detective i don't think fighting crime and taking illegal narcotics having open borders is not a laughing matter and nothing about a stunt. we need to hold those accountable who created this disaster. starts with joe biden, starts with his administration, starts with the secretary of homeland security. like leader mccarthy mentioned earlier this week at the southern border, about time we take back our country. we've seen it here even in my district in nassau county, where people are arrested for burglary rings and linked back to coming over the border. i visited the border. not that long ago, and i will tell you the open border policy is affecting every bit of industry, not only down on the southern border but right here. you created an issue -- elizabeth: finish your point. >> we've created an issue where every state is now a border
6:23 pm
state. elizabeth: so homeland security is pushing back on house minority leader mccarthy saying, secretary mayorkas should resign or face potential impeachment. homeland security saying this is finger pointing by mccarthy for border problems. your word on that, final word. >> i stand with leader mccarthy i tell you this, when we take an oath to defend and serve that is what we need to do. anybody can take an oath. it is about living out that oath and as we've seen the oath he has taken to defend our border he has failed. elizabeth: congressman elect. deesposito, happy thanksgiving. good to have you on. >> you and your family as well. elizabeth: okay. this story, is washington, d.c. so distracted with political infighting they're ignoring this danger?

the majority of deaths. >> exactly. the idea, the problem is, blaming the unvaccinated when it is the vaccinated who are hospitalized is illogical. elizabeth: got it. i hear you now. so this story, we like your reaction to this, the covid czar for the white house, he is getting criticized for this claim, watch? >> if folks get their updated vaccines and they get treated, they have a breakthrough infection, we can prevent essentially every covid death in america. elizabeth: i mean every covid death in america? isn't he basing that on a really limited cdc study that has half a dozen caveats? >> the problem he is using that argument to justify getting the new omicron vaccine that just got approved by the fda six weeks ago that only 10% of americans have received because the clinical data that is the human outcomes data has never been made public. cdc minutes before his press conference yesterday posted
6:31 pm
online a very flawed study, it was poorly conducted, used the wrong population, did not account for confounders and said in it that there were six limitations to its results. that is what dr. jha h said was crystal clear science. that is not crystal clear science. elizabeth: ifs, ands or buts, the it did not take into account immunity, vaccination, status, their own antibodies, variants and mutate and change all the time. effectiveness of boosters can dwindle down to 20% a few month later. even new york discourages booster shots for everyone except the immunocompromised. let's get to dr. fauci. this is a bombshell, considered a left-wing magazine called "the nation." he is being deposed by the attorney general lawsuit from missouri and louisiana. he got government emails between dr. fauci and former head of

inside of the house the dispatcher talked to numerous people in that call. so it could have been a chaotic scene inside of there. again police are still not releasing that call to the public but just to clarify the people who were on that call and also the girls, the roommates who were unhurt, in the house sleeping when the murders took place, and those other friends who showed up before the 911 call, they're not involved in any way according to police. this is a big complicated investigation. police say they have collected over 100 individual pieces of evidence, taken 4,000 pictures, many 3d scans, conducted 150 interviews and received 1000 tips but when i asked why they're not releasing who the killer's initial target was, captain lanier said this. >> first and foremost we have the integrity of the investigation to preserve. we feel like that information is integral to house how we conduct our investigation. releasing that to the public may or may not flood us with a lot

look four years ago when i went to israel on a trade mission we made, we made an effort to stop by tel aviv airport to talk about drones, the threat of drones to airports and what the israelis doing about it. the israelis somehow seem to be a step or two ahead of us on these threats and how to handle them. elizabeth: is that security at risk or espionage? what do you think? >> it could be espionage or physical threat. the drones are more physical and carrying higher payloads. they are electronic and you can use geofencing to knock them down. they will be eventually able to pick out bigger targets with bigger payloads. we need electronic counter-measures to knock them down. we need kinetic energy to knock them down for those drones
6:43 pm
autonomously flying around. elizabeth: congressman, your insights are important here because drones can easily capture wireless information from a government building a power grid or infrastructure. i mean the u.s. secret service said the last four years has caught hundreds of drones violating temporary arrow trickses meant to protect the president and his air force one. >> yeah. so look again, drones will become increasingly a bigger threat especially since they are now able to carry higher payloads. they're able to more capability inside the drones whether electronic surveillance or other kinds of threats to our national security. they have longer, they will have longer range and again, as i said, some of them will be piloted but my fear, my greatest fear is autonomous, basically intelligent drones and a number of them being lodged against a particular target and basically overwhelming any defense system they may have. elizabeth: got it. >> that is something that will come in the future. something we have to take care of. something we're looking into.
