12:00 pm
society with special rights and privileges. they're anti-government, they don't believe the laws apply to them and they're between 3,000 and 4,000 spread across the country. >> thanks, mike. i'm john roberts. bill? >> i'm used to seeing a white building behind you. nice to see you. >> it's white. >> bill: that it is. thanks, john. nice to see you. i'm bill hemmer. europe is moving forward. what about ask? officials working on plans to distribute covid-19 vaccines. the first shots start in a matter of weeks. the u.k. reports it will start vaccinations next week that makes britain the first to authorize a vaccine. at home, the c.d.c. updating quarantine guidelines. significantly, too. why is that? i'll talk with the director of the cdc dr. redfield about that. first laura ingraham outside of new york city on the latest.
12:01 pm
good afternoon. >> good afternoon, bill. you know, while we have at least a week to go before the fda gets into the approval process with the pfizer candidate here in the u.s., the chief adviser to operation warp speed says while the pandemic is active here, they're doing everything that they can to get the vaccines rolled out. >> the investments we've made in skating up and starting to stock up the manufacturing of the vaccines allow us to feel confident that we'll be able to distribute 20 million -- enough vaccines to immunize 20 million people in the u.s., 40 million doses. >> the cdc's advisory committee voted last night to recommend front-line healthcare workers as well as residents of long-term care facilities to get top priority. the panel will meet again to decide who will be next in the groupings to get the shots. the cdcs will releasing revised
12:02 pm
guidance on quarantine time today for those that may have been exposed to the coronavirus and have tested negative. they're moving from 14 days to seven days and ten days for those that have not been tested. also new today, bill, something similar to thanksgiving. the cdc has warned americans not to travel over the holidays. citing the surge in cases the u.s. is seeing right now. agency officials are recommending that people that travel get tested for covid 1-3 days before the trip and again three to five days after coming home. as we saw, many people did travel over the thanksgiving holiday. new numbers from the tsa show about 1.1 million travelers this last sunday. it has been the busiest air travel day since the pandemic began here in the u.s. >> they'll give us a warning every day. bahumbug. from georgia, the secretary of state said to give an update 20 minutes from now as the state
12:03 pm
investigates possible voter fraud including attempts at illegal registration. georgia has certified results for president-elect joe biden. officials repeatedly saying they have not seen evidence of widespread fraud that would change the outcome. but the new investigations raise questions ahead of next month's senate run-off, which will get a lot of attention. gabriel sterling, georgia's voting implementation manager. welcome to the program. good afternoon to you today in georgia. >> happy to be here, bill. >> bill: what have you found out about groups contacting people instead or inillegible to vote in various parts of the country. >> the most troubling are in state and out of state passed away and we know dead and registered repeatedly. the secretary's son passed away two years ago and one voter got three different forms. we're seeing a lot of this. we have the new georgia project associated with stacey abrams.
12:04 pm
they sent forms to new york city. we're going to dig in and finding more and more information every day. >> bill: how do you ensure the integrity of the vote in january? >> we do everything we can to ensure that georgians and only georgians vote here and legally registered and available to vote. >> bill: i'm looking at the release here. people in new york getting notices, on and on it goes. alabama. where does it end? >> we have 50 states. i don't know how far they sent those things. >> bill: secretary of state will have an announcement at 3:30. don't want to preempt this. what is on tap then? >> the main thing is talk about the fact that the recount is still on track. we're not seeing any real changes from the outcome of the november 3 election on the five million hand audit we did last week. the results will remain the same, that joe biden will be the winner for the state of georgia. the deadline for our county's recount is at midnight and we'll go through the processes to recertify the election and
12:05 pm
expect that to be done by friday. >> bill: thanks, gabe. see you at 3:30 for the headlines then. thanks. live in atlanta. how about that? christmas party surprise. president trump hinting at a possible run for the white house in 2024 as his campaign pursues legal battles and a handful of states. want to bring in martha maccallum of "the story." nice to see you. what do you think. is he in? >> that story will unfold over time, right? he will see how he feels about it in the months and weeks to come. the georgia race is one of the places where he can really start to turn the page and make that mark and get back into the mode of being supportive if you want to be king maker or run himself in the coming years. i think that door is wide open for him. he had ten million more votes last time than the first time
12:06 pm
around. >> bill: you had an very interesting interview with brad parscal. did he lead on that? >> we have more time to talk about how he feels about that. let's take a look. we can chat. >> do you believe he should run in 2024? >> i don't know what he should do but i wish he would. i think there's a lot of story to be told. do i hope he makes a few tweaks? yes. if he wants to call me, i'll tell them what they are. if he doesn't want to call him, the best of luck. he's the best thing for this country. >> bill: how does he rate his chances? >> he believes that there's -- he said he's the leader of the party. he has an enormous constituency. anybody that doesn't look at donald trump as the most forceful leader that the party has had in a long time is just not seeing the reality of what is out there on the ground. i don't think president trump is going away any time soon and brad feels that action he said, there could be changes to the
12:07 pm
way the campaign is run. he feels that he's doing a good job and what came after him is not as effective. we'll see. >> bill: i was watching your interview last night with great interest. why did he talk now? >> i mean, obviously he's been through a lot of personal turmoil that played out publicly. i think he is in a better place now and wanted to sort of get out there and seek mind about the campaign, about -- he was obviously hurt by being cut from the campaign. a lot of dynamics on the other side. other people have different versions of things he talked about. that's what always happens. a lot of finger pointing when you lose an election. >> bill: you're the only one across from him but i thought he had a different audience in his answers. i thought part of that was directed at the president when he said the following about covid and how that went down. >> that was his decision on
12:08 pm
covid to go for opening the economy versus public empathy. i think a young family with a young child who was scared to take them back to see wanted to see an empathetic president. i think people are scared. >> bill: what do you think of that reaction? >> it's very telling. i think there was a lot of battle that went on over how to handle the reaction to covid. as you remember, there was the rally in tulsa. there was a lot of criticism after that because there wasn't the turnout that people expected. it was in the middle of the first big wave. i think clearly you had a big debate. the president wanted throughout the entire course to make it go away. to have it not be there, to go on with life as if it wasn't happening. of course, operation warp speed was in full swing and doing what they felt was the right thing to do. he said you lost people in the suburbs and seniors as well as part of --
12:09 pm
>> bill: he told you that he was predicting landslide if he had taken his approach. a lot of that is water under the bridge right now. but he felt strongly -- >> 2020 is always hindsight, right? but he feels that if there had been a different approach, more empathetic by the president and his team sort of meeting people on the virus. i went into restaurant. waitresses were backing away. people were scared. he said you can't railroad over that. you have to accept it and lean into it and meet them where they are. >> bill: very much looking forward to tonight. >> thanks, bill. >> bill: also martha continues that interview with brad parscal tonight. and this woman is always working. she leads the coverage with senator loeffler and warnock. that's at 6:45 eastern time sunday evening. thanks, martha. >> thanks, bill. >> bill: from london, the u.k. is authorizing the use of pfizer's covid vaccine ahead of

12:14 pm
we're waiting fda approval on two covid vaccines. that most some of the most vulnerable americans could get a shot by christmas time. a lot of questions still out there rolling in today. we want to bring in the cdc director dr. robert redfield. thanks for your time. good afternoon. >> thanks, bill. >> bill: you bet. a number of questions. let's see how much we can get through the next six minutes or so. what is london doing that we're not doing? >> we have different approval system kinetics. i think it's really great that london is now approved this vaccine. the pfizer vaccine. a great confidence to the american public. i have confidence in our fda regulatory process, which is ongoing and also in the process of reviewing this information based on how they do it and anticipate that they'll have their advisory committee meeting -- >> bill: we've broken down a lot of walls.
12:15 pm
i think you'd agree on that with regulations and pushing things forward. did we drop the ball when it came to the fda in knocking down that wall? >> no, sir. it's critical. one of the biggest challenges right now is to maintain confidence in the vaccine. i think that the fda is really looking at the rigor to make sure that they really turn over every stone to look at this data to make sure that they understand fully what the safety profile is, what the side effects are so that there can be transparency for the american public when they approve this vaccine. >> bill: we want to get it going. hearing that rumors might be next. hang on if that's the case. on the quarantine, new rules announced today by the cdc. it was 14 days, now it's down to as few as seven, which is cut in half as you know. how come? >> well, bill, it's important. we're always trying to get new data. the original data that we had in the spring supported the 14
12:16 pm
days. we've been able over the summer to do a variety of other studies that allowed us to remodel the quarantine and were able to show that in ten days, you did have remarkable impact, only 1% likelihood of someone being missed at ten days and at seven days, if you test out day five, six or seven, it was basically -- there was a 5% chance that you might miss someone. we wanted to give the american public the options that we have based on the data that we have. 14 days is the most guarantee. ten days can really work very well. of course, seven days with testing out. >> bill: i want to read the headlines so our viewers are clear about it. quarantine can end on day seven after receiving a negative test result or on day ten without testing. that seems significant. >> i think it is significant. individuals as you know, the opportunity as you said in your
12:17 pm
header, could cut the quarantine time in half. isolation and quarantine is important for us to control the transmission of this virus from one individual to the other. really what we try to do is put the science out as we got it and put that out to the american people so now there's three different options, all of which are viable and recommended that can be individualized based on the circumstance. >> does it make sense medically speaking why it took us to december to figure that out? >> well, you know, i said before, cdc is not an opinion organization. we're science based and data driven. the reality is we did have to get the data to be able to answer that question. that data did begin to get gathered effectively over the summer. that's why we have changed our recommendations for the american public. >> bill: i don't know if we've ever gotten a straight answer on this. i'm going to try. i'll take you back to february now. we were told the cdc had a test that was ready to go and roll out and it did not happen.
12:18 pm
how come? >> well, the cdc did develop a test rapidly within really less than two weeks of the sequence of the virus in late january. that test, bill, worked that day and it works today. it's never been defective. what cdc did do is because people had to send the test to atlanta, they attempted to manufacture additional test kits that they could send to every health department in the country. in doing that, one of the three reagents that they included was not reliable in how it performed, either because of contamination, which some people have speculated or because of design of what we call the primer care that was used that it could cause a false positive test. talk about five weeks working with the fda to correct it and it was corrected and that test has worked well since. >> bill: to ahead. >> i just want to emphasize that at no time did the american public not have a highly
12:19 pm
functional test that was not flawed for covid-19. >> bill: so you're saying in february that test was not a mistake then. >> that's right. the test we used worked at cdc fine then. the test that we sent out to the local health departments when we manufactured it is that manufacturing process caused a defect in those tests. the test at cdc worked in january, february, march, april, works today. but the test that we sent out did have a defect. one of the reagents. took us about five weeks to correct. >> bill: cost a little bit. i think you would concede that as well. earlier today you said the nation was not prepared for this. you talked about the possibility of 450,000 americans dying from the virus in february was the month you gave. that puts us 12 months out. the cdc is also telling americans don't travel for christmas. i think that was kind of expected after thanksgiving.
12:20 pm
your advice on that now with the holidays 3 1/2 weeks away. >> yeah, i think it's really important. we are at a very significant point of this pandemic in the united states as you know. we've had four million cases over in the month of november. there's widespread transmission. so we're asking the american public to be very serious about reconsidering whether they travel. we put out guidance today to give people if they do choose to travel ways to think about how to minimize their risk if they do do travel whether by car, train or bus or plane. to think through what they need to think through. it's really not -- i went to stress, it's not the airlines that is the risk gate to gate. it's getting to the gate and leaving the gate and getting to where you're going and getting back. we put out guidance on domestic, which helps people if they choose to travel. our recommendation is still we do really recommend people reconsider their travel plans through this holiday. >> bill: tough news to take.
12:21 pm
sir, i appreciate you coming on. we're not out of it yet as you know. i want our audience to know you've not tape a day off since it began. thanks, sir, for your service. stay at it. >> thanks very much. >> bill: thank you. in a moment, hear joe biden talk to reporters. a good question for a former obama white house press secretary, my guess coming up a bit later. the latest on a possible covid relief bill before lawmakers take a break. rob portman is working that today. he will tell us where we stand when we continue next. ♪

a slimmed down version of a covid relief bill, which mitch mcconnell has put forward. the price tag about $500 billion. that's according to cbf. it knocks down a $900 billion bipartisan bill that some senators proposed a few hours earlier. republicans senator rob portman of ohio joins me in a moment. first, to peter doocy with the latest on what is happening with joe biden. virtual roundtable underway this hour. good afternoon, peter. >> thank you, bill. before he's sworn in in 49 days, the main power this president-elect has is to hire people for his administration and hear people out. the motorcade is on the way to a virtual roundtable. it's going to be with small business owners hurt by the pandemic inside of a theater in wilmington that has been wired for him to give speeches and host teleconferences like this one. we know he's not getting
12:27 pm
involved in day-to-day negotiations about covid-19 relief. he doesn't know anything about what a bipartisan group on the hill put in their $900 billion proposal until after they went public with it. he wants something passed now during the lame duck session which would require cooperation from mitch mcconnell. that is somebody that he still has not spoken to. the president-elect is shrugging off concerns about neera tanden who has been deleting a ton of tweets that has managed to offend conservatives and progressives. republicans are not committing to a confirmation hearing. biden said if nasty tweets matters, 90% of politicians would be disqualified. he's not filed any widespread voter fraud that could change the results of the election. a "new york times" interview with tom freedman and biden.
12:28 pm
biden said barr just called him asking him if i could get him in the witness protection program for endorsing me. barr is sure to be placed by a biden appointed attorney general, but the fbi director is not -- sources are now telling fox that the biden administration intends to let christopher wray stay at the j. edgar hoover building. >> bill: rob portman with me now from ohio. good afternoon to you. >> good afternoon. >> bill: we spoke in the commercial break. you say there's a little movement on this covid bill. tell us about that. >> we have a situation where it's getting worse around the country and ohio. we have more cases, more hospitalizations and more fatalities. yet we have the good news about the vaccine out there. there's probably three or four months now where we need more help to get to the period where the vaccine will be widely available. that is the kind of targeted package that i think in passing i'd say in the senate.
12:29 pm
i think there's a better chance of it now that you have a bipartisan move that has come together to talk about that. >> bill: on that bipartisan group, they propose $900 billion, shy of a trillion. state and local government, $240 billion. paycheck protection program, $300 billion. is that something that you would vote for, senator? >> i within the range of what most people would support. i think when you look at that package, it's not $900 billion. it includes taking some money that is already been allocated and bringing it back and reprogramming it. i think it's more in the $300 billion range, which is close as you know to what we republicans have supported. twice we've taken bills and supported them with 52 votes. we have to have 60 votes. no democratic help. the big problem is the speaker of the house has not been willing to move off of her position, which started off at $3.5 trillion. she's come down a little.
12:30 pm
but still a huge package that has a lot of provisions that don't have any direct consequence on covid-19. such as state and local taxes, immigration law changes. i think what you're seeing now today really just in the last hour or so some movement to say well, maybe this bipartisan package to be a basis for going forward. >> bill: so you're saying speaker pelosi is coming off the $2.2 trillion package? >> yeah, i think she is based on a statement that was made shortly -- just awhile ago. both she and chuck schumer, the democratic leader say this bipartisan group may be the basis for negotiation. doesn't mean they support it. what we're talking about is a more targeted bill that gets us through this period. it's like a bridge over the valley between now and the march april time frame. >> bill: we saw the statement. put it on the screen.
12:31 pm
>> bill: senator, thanks for breaking the news. we'll see whether or not it moves. >> i hope it does something. we're hurting back home. you're from cincinnati. we could use some help. it needs to be targeted and focused. >> bill: thanks, rob. the senator from ohio. thanks for your time. in a moment, black lives matter is asking where is that money? we'll dig in on that. find an answer in a moment. election whistle-blower speaking out as the a.g. said there was no widespread fraud. where does this go and what about that special counsel? jonathan turley will answer it next. >> i'll know exact number of ballots, just how many jelly beans are in the jar. i can tell you, i saw 24 pallets from new york to lancaster.

>> bill: rudy guliani heading to michigan now. heading to testify before state lawmakers. michigan certified their results for biden. he won by 160,000 votes there. mark meredith is in lancing to run down what is expecting today. good afternoon, mark. >> bill, good afternoon. the president's legal team continues to focus efforts on michigan although the state has certified their results. a little later on tonight, rudy guliani will be testifying before a state house committee. guliani is expected to lay out what he said with pieces of evidence of fraud as people went to the poll last month. he's expected to invite other residents to testify. he's been defending his decision to get involved on twitter saying --
12:37 pm
>> yesterday a state senate committee hearing heard several hours of testimony from people that said they they witnessed suspicious behavior and people claim to be moving ballots and ethernet connections to voting machines. the secretary of state denies fraud. she called the election fair and security. republicans say there's a lot that can be learned from last month's election that can impact how michigan votes in the future. >> our job is to investigate the election, to look what happened, to look at new laws that we have that allowed mass absent tee voting and come up with solutions to restore trust in our elections in michigan. >> democrats are complaining that there's really no time for this. that michigan is struggling so much with the coronavirus. however, republicans are pushing back saying that they can do more than one thing at a time saying this is important and could have an impact on future elections in this state and across the country.
12:38 pm
>> bill: thanks, mark. we'll see what is spoken there today. thanks, sir. >> this happened on october 21. i picked them up in new york. drive them to harrisburg and then from harrisburg i drove them to lancaster, dropped the truck off and went home. i saw that like the top corners, addresses on them, filled out. like i didn't see it on every one. >> bill: that is a u.s. postal service subcontractor speaking with sean hannity. he picked up the ballots from new york and took them to pennsylvania and sharing stories of voting irregularities and the trump campaign claimed to have sworn affidavits. jonathan turley is here with us. good day to you. and new york to lancaster is a four-hour drive. what do you make of that story that gentleman is giving now?
12:39 pm
>> well, it's concerning. this is the type of thing that we need to look into. this is an allegation. he is describing things from his perspective that may or may not be accurate. they're worthy of investigation. attorney general barr took heat for making these investigations quicker and easier for local u.s. attorney. he did that so he could assure people that there's not going to be a delay or bureaucracy in the way. they'll run down allegations. so this is something that we need to look at. but the fact is that bill barr is not a chump. he's not an overseeing a deep state conspiracy. he's also not a deep state conspirator. he's a critic of the reliance on bail-in ballots. he's skeptical or he stated, of how this system was prepared for this election. so these are allegations that will largely go to the local
12:40 pm
u.s. attorneys and to the local fbi agents. if they believe they warrant investigation, they have the tools that they need. >> bill: i would point out, under the penalty of perjury. if they're lying, they can go to jail. that is the affidavit that these people have signed, that when -- one more query on this now. you hear about it so often. i was just watching what bill barr made his big announcement on our program yesterday. talked about it, widespread fraud that could overturn the election. in real time yesterday we had a special counsel, john durham that was reported as well. i watched your twitter feed. i believe what you suggested is a question about is there a report coming now that durham has been elevated. is that your sense about what could come next? >> well, we've all heard rumors
12:41 pm
that durham has found information and evidence that was not disclosed in the mueller report and not disclosed in the inspector general's report. we know that he'd ask to upgrade his investigation into a criminal matter. he's already secured one criminal guilty plea. he receptly asked for over 1,000 pages of classified intelligence material. that does not sound like a prosecutor who reporting to news reports for the election had found nothing and was resisting pressure and going forward. so the key to remember is that to trigger this provision, barr had to establish that there was a credible need for further criminal investigation and presumably durham also agreed with that proposition. now, this makes it more likely that he will be able to complete an investigation and release a report. democratic leaders were insistent with mueller that they wanted a full report with no
12:42 pm
redactio redactions. they may have those comments played back to them very soon when durham finishes his report. >> bill: don't you think for the sake of democracy that we deserve answers on this? it's been four years. >> yeah. we do. that's why i'm very suspicious of these people trying to shut down this investigation. we've had chairman schiff in the house suggesting that this investigation be shut down. various senators do so before the election. even joe biden himself dismissed this as investigating the investigators. there's serious questions here. questions that some of us have followed this closely still don't have answers for. durham is widely regarded as apolitical, very straight shooting prosecutor. we should all want to see that report. what is clear is he's not done. nobody is going to rush him. now, by the way, one of the conditions of the regulations is
12:43 pm
that there's a conflict that would develop in the department of justice or one that exists. that conflict would not seem likely connected to the current administration or this would have happened months ago. so this assumption is that barr see as conflict in the upcoming biden administration which has been taking clinton and obama figures. sally yates is a frontrunner for the next attorney general. she would have a serious conflict with any continuing durham investigation. >> bill: very interesting. we will watch that. i agree with you. we deserve answers and we need them. the sooner the better four years plus. thanks, professor. jonathan turley. 20 million doses is the expected number by the end of this year of covid-19 vaccines. and plus the incoming biden administration and the question of transparency. i'll talk with josh earnest
