2:12 am
nations. it is paira mount the committee investigate national security vmcasion to hunter biden funding his father. the letter comes as daily mail reportss e-mails from 2019 to indicate president biden agreed to pay his son's business dealings with a chinese-controlled company. the white house maintains the president is and was in the dark. >> he's never spoken to his son about his business dealings, has he spoken to his son's business partners about his son's business dealings? >> press sect. psaki: nothing has changed, the president does not get involved in the business dealings of his son? >> even with his business partners? >> press sect. psaki: nothing changed from what i said yesterday. >> brooke: account face a subpoena next year. >> carley: how worried do you think joe biden is behind closed doors?
2:13 am
he can't run forever. >> todd: that is a loaded question, that calls into question his ability to wor bethings. to yore overall points, he should be nervous. despite the white house saying today is not thursday, it is thursday. the evidence is so aparent, you have e-mails. this individual eric schwerin wasn't going to the white house for tours, he was there for a purpose, multiple times throughout the intervening years and in 2016, he was there a boatload. >> carley: eight times. >> todd: joe biden cannot say i have no idea why this was happening. >> carley: one big concern by republicans isn't fact joe biden could have made money from foreign entities after he was
2:14 am
out of office, it is the fact if his son was making business deals with china, our adversary, could that affect decisions he's making today? that is one main concern about this whole thing. we call this the hunter biden scandal, it could be the joe biden scandal and i think it is wild that the biden administration is runing from this, everybody knows of course he had conversations not only did he have conversations with his son about his business dealings, he appears to have been heavily involved. when you hear about joe biden paying for legal fees when hunter was trying to strike a business deal with a company tied to the chinese communist party and going on air force two to china and ukraine and joe biden was paying for hunter biden chinese business partners or wrote a letter for a business partner's son to get into
2:15 am
college, it semiconductorss like it is family business and people are worry today is pay for play. >> todd: there is a line that says they are worried joe biden was indebted to countries not aligned with u.s. interest. that is chilling. obviously the country is china, call it what it is. they are not our friend. they are our adversary and the fact the president of the united states could be indebted in some way, shape or form to them is worrisome. they figured out what they need to do to overtake us, doesn't help to have the commander-in-chief in their pocket to the extent that is what is happening. >> carley: republicans retake it is house. >> todd: a lot of hearings. with that, elon musk says he will make sure twitter is politically neutral platform. we just found out 99% of employee donations at twitter went to democrats. >> carley: joe skwloe -- joe

concha is on deck next. there's a different way to treat hiv. it's every-other-month, injectable cabenuva. for adults who are undetectable, cabenuva is the only complete hiv treatment you can get every other month. cabenuva helps keep me undetectable. it's two injections, given by a healthcare provider every other month. it's one less thing to think about while traveling. hiv pills aren't on my mind. a quick change in my plans is no big deal. don't receive cabenuva if you're allergic to its ingredients or taking certain medicines, which may interact with cabenuva. serious side effects include allergic reactions, post-injection reactions, liver problems, and depression. if you have a rash and other allergic reaction symptoms, stop cabenuva and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have liver problems or mental health concerns, and if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or considering pregnancy. some of the most common side effects
2:17 am
include injection-site reactions, fever, and tiredness. if you switch to cabenuva, attend all treatment appointments. every other month and i'm good to go. ask your doctor about every-other-month cabenuva.

>> carley: elon musk is taking twitter executives to task over bias and censorship on the platform. >> todd: marianne live from california to be specific with the details. marianne. >> marianne: elon musk says in order for twitter to restore public confidence, the platform has to allow free speech for all. he says for twitter to deserve public trust, it must be politically neutral, which means upsetting the far right and far left equally. there is a meme, tweeted by musk targeting twitter's top lawyer who defended banning tweets
2:21 am
deemed to spread misinformation. it is revealed 99% of political donations from twitter employees go to democrats, according to federal records, that leads republicans to form conclusions about left-wing bias. >> the wokers who run twitter are intol erant and believe kids should be able to change gender at recess. this is america, can you believe what you want, but they can't and shouldn't censor those on twitter who disagree with them. >> martha: republican politicians urging musk to do what he's done with other companies, move twitter out of california to a more tax-friendly state with lower cost of living. jacksonville, florida says the invitation is open, come on
2:22 am
elon. texas governor greg abbott says bring twitter to texas. acclaimed by the left leaning organization that the fcc can block musk's deal because of conflict with ownership in star link has been rejected by the agency's commissioner calling the idea absurd. >> todd: they will try everything to stop this. marianne, thank you. let us bring in joe concha. fox news contributor, joe, i love a good pie chart. this is less of a chart and more of a pie. 99% of twitter employee donations went to democrats, a whopping 505 went to republicans, i wonder why so many twitter employees were so dramatic when they learned twitter might welcome conservative crews following the news of musk's purchase?
2:23 am
>> this is surprising as my nets getting bounced from the playoffs again. silicon valley is liberal, look where it is, california. overwhelmingly young. this is not terribly surprising, but what it shows is the why. the why in this case is why are so many liberals getting upset that elon musk is taking over the free speech absolutists and levelling the playing field. why are we sey reaction like this? this is why, of course. now suddenly conservatives will have an eshg kwal voice as opposed to getting suppressed and censored and having accounts locked out and the play ground has gone away at twitter. if you look at donations from employees at google or facebook, you will see similar numbers like this, big tech over whelmingly unbiasd and that is why elon musk is a threat to
2:24 am
that. and elon musk is not like a conservative, right, who is he? he brought us the electric car, is suddenly the biggest threat to everybody. >> carley: speaking of threats, this story is unique, department of homeland security is setting up a disinformation board and what it will do, tackle misinformation within minority communities and the person in charge of it is ninajunkowitz. she said about elon musk, i shutter to think is free speech absolutists take over, we should view hunter biden's laptop as a trump campaign product. she was obviously wrong about that second one. a disinformation board? that is as distaupian as it sounds. >> yeah, biden disinformation
2:25 am
board is an oxymoron, that this exists, this is type of stuff north korean would invents. who is the ashtorof something like this when they represent one ideology and one political organization? that disinformation board should look do dhs secretary alejandro mayorkas, yesterday he testified he thinks administration is doing good job at the border or when jen psaki says it is the trump administration's fault because this is what we inherited, that is disinformation. if this administration is in charge of it, no one will take it seriously. no one trusts this administration anymore, if you look at the polls, carley and todd. >> todd: vice president harris has done 31 times as many interviews as president biden has since start of the year, hazard to guess as to why. >> 31 times?
2:26 am
that is a fascinating number, when you consider that i can't remember one notable interview kamala harris has done since january 1. that time she talked to 60 minutes, i don't remember that, she took questions from fox news, i don't remember that. if she is doing 31 times the interview and you can barely remember any interview this person has done, that tells you a lot. the bottom line, joe biden has not done an interview in terms of broadcast news for two months, in an election year when he is polling 33%. if he wants to sell his agenda going into november, you might want to get yourself out here more. that is the problem, it is a lose/lose situation, it is always clean up on aisle five and he didn't do interviews, wow, this is absency president, why isn't he selling his agenda? they will not win, i would think he would try and he's not at
2:27 am

2:28 am
annoying. next big storm system, area of low pressure moves into the plane states, we could see snow for higher elevations and ahead of that front, we'll see risk for severe storm, there is your risk today from the big bend of texas toward the plane states and parts of the rockies and on friday, we will see the ingredientss come together and potential for severe weather outbreak. watching fire danger across good chunk of the country, we'll see wildfire danger for parts of the southwest into texas as that storm system brings gusty winds and dry conditions. i'm sorry. >> carley: janice, no one blames you. who are you going to blame? >> janice: when it is nice out -- >> carley: there you go. exactly. janice, we always thank you. turn to this now. an idea has little to do with

2:36 am
>> carley: hope somebody relays that information to him. overall crime has spiked 43% in new york city and the mayor did run on a platform of making streets safer. this is obviously something that takes time, i think a lot of people didn't expect crime to get worse with him as mayor, should he be doing something more? >> concentrating more on criminals than cops looking into their phones, as they should be. what needs to be done issue the police are doing their job. we've made over 2000 arrestss since the mayor has been in office with guns and made over 10,000 arrests regarding illegal firearms, what is fail suggest our justice system. there needs to be mandatory minimum of time spent in jail if you are caught with illegal firearm. that will cut down on violence in new york city. >> carley: without a doubts. you said police are doing their jobs, which they are, and they
