chance at success. >> a lot of members in there are talking about running for president in 2024. they don't want to cross president trump in any way. and so they're trying to appease the base of supporters that continue to want to try to overturn the election. reporter: vice president mike pence will preside over a constitutionallally mandated session if a member of the house and state object to the results that forces debate and then a vote in each chamber on whether to reject a state's electors. democrats control the house, and several top senate republicans have already acknowledged a biden win. making these objections unlikely to succeed. republican leaders have largely shifted their focus next week to a pair of special senate elections in georgia. president trump is heading down there just ahead of the election tweeting, quote, we'll be in georgia on 9 p.m. to rally for two great people in georgia.

3:06 pm
of support that they need. reporter: jon is campaigning too and more than anyone single issue his peach to georgia voters is about change. >> now it is time to make change as a level of the united states senate. retirement is coming for kelly loeffler and david perdue -- [applause] reporter: all day john has been criss-crossing the state launching canvas kickoff, democrat party wants vice presidents to be socially distant making their pitches to voters outside their homes and because this is georgia, this morning, those volunteers were sent off with instructions and barbecue sandwiches. jon. jon: got to keep them fed peter doocy in georgia. thank you. joe biden and kamala harris campaign and harris will be in peach state request biden

3:08 pm
those documents detail corporate america and wall street treasury secretary nominee janet yellen disclosure shows she made over 7 million dollars from speaking engagements paid by major financial firms on wall street like goldman sachs, ubs and city same firms she'll have influence over in her role as treasury secretary. biden transition official gives me the following statement about this, saying, quote, this is not someone who throw punch when is it comes to bad actors or bad behavior you can expect she'll bring the same high ethical standards and tough enforcement philosophy to treasury. biden pick for secretary of state tony blinken is also sparking questions. of conflict of interest but blinken made over a million doing consulting work for companies like microsoft, über at&t and fedex i talk to a biden official who discuss financial disclosures show most of biden nominee spent a lot of time working for the government and a little time in the private
3:09 pm
sector but jon, even that little time spent in the private sector, some of them made a lot of money. jon. jon: hillary vaughn in delaware. hillary, thank you. so what can we expect in georgia and on capitol hill next week? congressman chuck the republican from tennessee is a surrogate for the perdue and loeffler campaigns, also a member of the house appropriations committee congressman, thanks for being with us this evening. >> good evening. jon: so you are one of those who has registered concerns with the vote count from november 3rd you plan to object to the electoral college certification? >> that is correct i do along with unanimous tennessee delegation in the house and senate. fundamental to our great republic, our constitutional republic is the sanctity of the vote and after listening to my constituents from third district of trn and looking at what
3:10 pm
happened in swing states, i've got grave concerns about a process that went on and i'm going to post those concerns with objection standing with president trump on, on this week. jon: well secretary of state brad who has received a fair amount of criticism from the president, seemed to suggest that the reason the president lost georgia has not so much to do with fraud but just the fact that the president didn't excite republican voters there. listen to what the secretary of state said earlier today on fox. >> 20,000 republican voters traditional republican voters just skip the presidential race. senator david perdue got 19,000 more votes than metro region than president trump did, and in our republican congressional areas they got 33,000 more votes than president trump did. and so that's really what happened is that republicans probably many of those viewed more moderate republicans just stayed away from that race or
3:11 pm
voted for other side. reporter: so that's his assessment of what happened. can you expect that those republicans are going to be excited enough to go out and vote for senators perdue andlet left loeffler and put them in the senate? >> the both kelly loeffler and senator perdue deserve reelection they're both fine senators. they've done a great job. but i think republicans will understand the gravity of this moment in history and come out to vote along with independents and some democrat of good conscience. the democratic candidates come from the far left of their spectrum. i don't think they're in line with the vast majority of georgia citizens. so i'm looking forward to a win win for republicans in the georgia senate races. it is so important that we keep the united states senate and
3:12 pm
republican hands. jon: according to a fox news poll taken in early december, more than a third of americans believe that there was fraud in this presidential election and they believe that it was essentially stolen from president trump among all vote rs yo see the number there is 36% believe it was still and trump voters 77% even among democrats 10% say they believe the election was stolen. hence, your push to get the electoral college vote held up until you get this investigation? >> the american people deserve answers. the american people deserve truth. and we have got to make sure that going forward, this is a precedent setting moment for us in history. if we lose this opportunity, if we don't stand up for every legal vote being counted in every illegal vote not being counted, we will lose the fundamental fabric of our republic forever. this is not only about donald
3:13 pm
trump. this is about our great republic. we've got to stand up we've got to object and we've got to get it right. we've been in very adverse circumstances due to covid certain states got it wrong. i think georgia did get it wrong with the presidential election with their mailout ballots things like that. a lot of irregularities. we're still getting are complaingts of irregularities. we owe it to american people to get it right, that's why i'm going to october object this week. jon: 11 senators and senators elect who are planning on objecting to electoral college results put out a statement it reads in part, we are not naive. we fully expect most if not all democrats perhaps more than a few republicans to vote otherwise. but support of election integrity should not be a partisan issue. a fair and credible audit conducted expeditiously completed well before january 20th would dray dramatically ime faith in american process and significantly enhance the legitimacy of whoever becomes our next president and then
3:14 pm
signed by the 11 senators. and senators elect -- you need, you need votes in the house to maintain this objection that you plan to lodge. as long as democrats control the house, you're not going to get that, are you? >> well it is yet to be seen but if you look at the numbers i can understand your assessment. but this is a vote of principle this is a vote of conscience. this is going to be a legacy vote not only for every member but also again, to the fundamental fabric of our great republic. we are privileged to live in greatest nation in the world and that's because, i believe we're one nation under god but i also believe that we are a constitutional republic. as a great republic we've got to make sure that the sanctity vote that the credibility of honest votes being counted and dishonest votes not being counted the process has got to be fair, open and honest.
3:15 pm
the vast majority of americans have questions about this process. we owe it to them to get it right. jon: very quickly i want to play what tim ryan democrat of ohio had to say regarding -- >> they have that right, they're going to exercise that right and then it is going to go to a vote in the house and senate and boat republicans and democrats will reject this because there's no evidence by any credible source that say it is that election was in any way fraudulent. >> you think you can come up with that evidence? >> well, i think we're going to see more and more evidence come out every day. refer to the great state of georgia they've had hear technician this past week, uncovering more and more irregularities. when we talk about what this is, we can call it irregularity. we can call it a problem. we got to make sure that we get it right to the american people. one legal person, one legal vote. not one legal person, three
3:16 pm
illegal votes. this covid situation caused the situation in many swing states. i believe where we've seen irregularities, problems and i think that is detrimental to our great constitutional republic voting for president or any other election we have to get it right it has to be honest. jon: congressman, chuck, thank you. >> thank you. jon: well, sunday marks one year since the u.s. strike that killed notorious iranian general qaasim soleimani and tehran vowing revenge for his death. mark meredith has more. >> sunday marks one year since the u.s. air strike killed and as anniversary nears national security officials are closely watching iran. looking for any possible signs of retaliation. over the last several weeks, pentagon deployed additional resources into the persian gulf

3:35 pm
we'll see what direction this state thinks that country should be headed. back to you, jon. >> charles watson in thrangts. thanks. with control of the senate hanging in the balance, win in georgia would make easier for democrats to begin dismantling president trump policies. here to talk about what lies ahead james freeman "the wall street journal" editorial page also a fox news contributor james. >> good to be here. jon: i want to start with something that peared on editorial page on wall street journal the headline is what's at snake georgia that reads in part congress needs only a simple majority to repeal trump administration regulations under the congressional review act. say good-bye to the new rules feeding environmental reviews on public works. a 50-vote senate with vice president kamala harris breaking ties, also guarantees a huge tax increase since current rules allow a simple majority to pass
3:36 pm
a budget. i think that latter part is lost on a lot of people always assume you need a 66 vote or 60 vote majority in the senate to get a budget passed. things have changed remarkably in past few years. >> that's right. through the reconciliation process, the biden team can get its tax increase if they have that 50/50 senate with kamala harris presiding and estimate is 4 trillion dollars on that. now mr. biden has said it is really only going to hit rich people and only going to hit businesses but as we've seen over the world not just in this country when you have heavy taxes on corporate income those businesses tend to invest less in new plant equipment that means fewer tool for workers work reverse less product i have, workers have lower wages than they otherwise would have. so i think anyone voting with the idea that the $4 trillion tax increase won't hit them
3:37 pm
is -- is probably operating under a false assumption. jon: when you look back at the trump term and the explosive growth that took place in the economy during those four years, you know, absentee coronavirus pandemic to what do you attribute it? >> well it was, corporate tax reform i think was a big game change or you took the united states which used to be the highest in the industrialized world including in terms of corporate taxation both the state and federal levees, and it made us competitive it put us on a par with our competitors in asia, europe also big effort to cut red tape. you mentioned the -- infrastructure issue which is this may seem like kind of a boring top toik people, but we have a problem in this country that the president sought to address that it could take decade and years and years and years to get fairly simple projects approved to build
3:38 pm
roads, bridges, needed public infrastructure. and he briefly he actually told me and maria bartiromo in an interview recently he thinks this might be most enduring legacy is the streamlining the process to allow to build to perhaps two years so that is at stake immediately if the democrats take the senate. >> and if democrats take the senate they can begin dismantling much of what president trump spent the last four years building. right? >> yeah. that really competitive job creating economy that was humming along precovid and that his -- roared back since the spring shutdown that in 12 million jobs, i think that really is at risk because you're talking about essentially one party rule in washington for the next two years. if there'ses democratic senate. so it's, we mention the $4 trillion tax increase, it's ten trillion roughly in new spending
3:39 pm
you start thinking about how quickly does joe biden pursue his goal of moving us all from 98% of us from gas power cars to electric cars and how quickly try to move to all renewable energy in electricity system right now it is not even 20% these are big wrenching expensive changes, and without a -- excuse me a republican senate where there's the need for compromise, this country could make some pretty radical changes and we're coming out of, obviously, a year when the economy was hit hard by covid shut downs. jon: the election continues to bedevil a lot of people on capitol hill the election results. listen to senator marsha blackburn talking about octobers to electoral college results. listen. >> the democrats have launched their objections.
3:40 pm
and you can go back and look at recent past elections where they have had their objections and have launched them. whether it was -- 6901, 2005, 2017. let's let the american people have trust in the integrity of these elections. >> so there are roughly a dozen republican senators who plan to object to the electoral college certification vote coming up in a couple of days. is this going to amount to anything or is it entirely a symbolic gesture? >> i think it's largely a protest i don't think they expect to prevail. i think they would like an audit but they're talking about audit completed by january 20th i think it's -- it's fair to say if you reopen this whole question of the validity of voting matter would be unlikely settled by then if they came up with something they thought would actually overturn
3:41 pm
results. she's right unfortunately, this is a disturbing recent trend where you have democratic house members objects in '04 and democratic house members objects in 2016 to trump election and then, of course, you have the 2016 democratic candidate hillary clinton spent years claiming that the election was rigged. so i don't think this is a positive trend in our politics. i think where there are questions about voting, you would like a deeper look at them and maybe -- while accepting that joe biden is getting inaugurated they would think about how you attack a deeper dive into those questions. jon: james freeman assistant editor james thanks happy new year. >> you two thanks. >> funeral services held today for louisiana congressman elect luke. he died on tuesday from complications of covid-19.

european union, it can make its own trade deals and is desperate to make a free trade deal with the united states. but president-elect biden team has suggested they may want to do a trade deal with the eu first. jon. jon: brian chilcote in london. thanks. that wraps up our look at some stories from around the globe. well a new year means new laws on the books from police reforms to legalizing drugs. we'll take a closer look, next. robinhood believes now is the time to do money. without the commission fees. so, you can start investing today wherever you are - even hanging with your dog. so, what are you waiting for? download now and get your first stock on us. robinhood.
