Tucker back Monday welcome to this special edition of Hannity, the lefts overreach im Tammy Bruce in for Sean Weave begin with a Fox news alert breaking tonight. President Trump and his legal team are vowing to take their fight to preserve election integrity, all the way to the: U Dot S Supreme Court after an appeals. Court earlier today dismissed a lawsuit over voting procedures in Pennsylvania. Now, following the ruling Trump lawyer, Jenna Ellis tweeted quote: the activist judicial machinery in Pennsylvania continues to cover up the allegations of massive fraud onto the Supreme Court, and yesterday the president was asked about the growing evidence of ballot irregularities in key battleground states heres. What he had to say take a look its going to be a very hard thing to concede, because we know there was massive fraud so as to whether or not I can
get this apparatus moving this quickly because time isnt on our side, everything else is on our side. Facts are on our side. This was a massive fraud, all right. Well, the president went on to say that he will leave the White House. Of course, if the electoral college votes for Biden and tonight, the President tweeted Biden did poorly in big cities except those of Detroit Philadelphia, Atlanta and Milwaukee, not surprisingly, they are all located in most important swing states and are long known for being politically corrupt democrats and their allies in an the media mob are so desperate to stop from you asking legitimate questions about the way this elections was conducted and legitimate questions about massive irregularities in the voting process. Yet all Americans, regardless of party or ideology, do care about election integrity and transparency and on the basis of democracy and bailiffs of what it means to
live in a free and fair country. Why President Trump is not slowing down and is vowing to fight to ensure that every legal vote is counted and vowing to do everything he can to stand in the way of the far lefts quest for power at all costs. Now the president announced yesterday he will be holding a rally in Georgia yeah next Saturday, not this one but the next one for republican senators, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler ahead of the Georgia Senate runoff in January Heres. The president laying out the state of the race yesterday and the horrendous records of Warnock and Ossoff take a look. He doesnt deserve to be there. Is he a light weight and the other one is either a communist or socialist? I cant figure that one out, yet he is either a communist or a socialist, probably a communist. This is not for Georgia and I just want to tell my people dont be disappointed yet because this race is far from over. Yes, indeed, remember Democrats have already made it clear that if they do
take control of the Senate, they are ready, willing and able to unleash what would be the most far left political force on you, the american people that we have ever seen. It will include abolishing the filibuster packing the Supreme Court, two new states in d, dot C and Puerto Rico, creating four new democratic senators wouldnt that be convenient. Abolishing the electoral college, open borders and much much more joining me now for reaction, Fox NEWS, Contributedders, Jason Chaffetz and David Webb, along with former acting Dni director, Ric Grenell, a terrific lineup, a reminder for everyone watching, gentlemen that this nation can be is now and will always be in good hands. Thanks for joining me, let me start with you. Rick I mean you have been Thruf the administration. You have had many important posts as an ambassador working with the president. You know his action in going to Georgia reminds people with everything else going on. We with walk and chew gum at the same
time that Georgia is key, that the Democrats are not kidding when it comes to what they will do. Do you agree with that? Yeah look. You know. I have talked to President Trump about races like Georgia and the Senate, and he is very focused on making sure that the Senate stays in republican hands. He knows he has been through an administration where you have to deal with the Senate. You have to try to get legislation through and he knows how important it is, and so, as the head of our party as the most popular person in our party, the president is focused on helping and when he goes, he will absolutely make a huge difference. People will come out, they will be able to see him be energized, they will vote. The president really has a huge impact on so many races, and I see his commitment to Georgia and were all very pleased that he will be able to help us cross the finish line, indeed, Jason. At the
same time, you can have all the passion in the world get out the vote. Go there rally people up, but it really doesnt matter. If shenanigans continue, it really doesnt matter. If we still have some problems there in Georgia. What is your take on the nature of you who this is proceeding with what needs to happen? We know the Democrats are already doing a great deal, even encouraging people to move to Georgia to vote whats your take on what can unfold there. Yeah I mean you have people encouraging people to Georgia, which is of course against the law that doesnt slow them down. All eyes are on Georgia. There will be Huron dreads of millions of dollars spent. But if you live in Georgia, you are a legal, lawful voter. You need to get out and vote and do your part and make sure that the legal part of this, the poll watching part of it in that whole apparatus is doing the right thing. Doug Collins is leading. I know the effort to go through the recount again. He will be heavily involved in this one of the people I served with in Congress.
I have the greatest respect for, but Republicans already have fifty senators in the United States Senate. We need one, but two would be better to block what Nancy Pelosi is doing. It has to happen. I know there will be all kinds of shenanigans. You know what elections happen at the precinct level and you need people engaged at those precinct levels. Volunteering willing to show up willing to help count and just keep a watchful eye. Great point David talking about these are technical things, no matter who technical things no matter who is in the White House, the Senate matters. People still think in some ways the Democrats mean well, that is all roads lead to Rome. Everybody will be fine. Nobody is going to be doing these crazy things that will hurt the country David. You know, have you got a perspective here, as I do that? In fact, the left dont mean well that these are horrible things that can unfold give, as you perspective here
when it comes to what the left is planning on doing and what we can expect over the next few years with them in charge Tammy. In order to see what theyre planning on doing, we have to first admit that they have been planning and executing for years now. They have always wanted to pervert our election system. Look at what they have done. Have you got the state of Pennsylvania where just recently released news that Senator has filed under their constitution article one section two for the legislators to get involved. They should pick the electors. We have got to follow the rules, because the Democrats have an outcome. The leftist progressives have the win at all costs win by any means necessary, because in our system once have you won you get to take over and go thats why the Senate matters? They cannot have all three branches, and I will say that very carefully, very accurately. Under our constitution, we dont have a President elect right now.
What we have is an election, a process thats playing out. We dont have a certification, so the president is still the president of the United States. He has his constitutional rights and he has to go through that processes. Whats the challenge for the legal team. We have got to stop the left from going down the road. They have been traveling this road for a long time to change this country, to alter the constitution and to alter it at the state levels so that it doesnt work for national election. You know, Rick, you have been on the ground and dealing with Nevada. Have you seen the nature of whats been transpiring? This was not new. As David is noting. They started this pre pandemic, this universal mail in voting, which is ripe for manipulation when we think about something like that doesnt. This have to be at the top of the republican agenda, to kind of lock this down and make sure that we dont have a replay of this in twenty twenty, two and 24 et Cetera. Absolutely
it needs to be the number one issue. You know you ask yourself, whats the difference states like Nevada or Ohio, or Ohio and Pennsylvania. The reason why Ohio ran so well is because you actually had to request a ballot. Sixty percent, I think, is the number of people in Ohio that voted by mail, but every single one of those people asked for a ballot. The difference is that in Pennsylvania and Nevada, the government started sending ballots to people and they didnt know those ballots were coming. People had moved, they didnt check the voter roles, people were dead, people were sent ballots to their old addresses, so it was really a mess and it happened sixty days before the election. This is what happens when you change the rules and you are not prepared yeah, and you know Jason with your experience in Congress. We know the value of being able to be chairing the committees, the impact that can be had when it comes to educating the american people.
We know now. Look president Trump had the one thousand seven hundred and seventy six commission idea about education about doing something like that, if hes, not in the White House. That of course, will not happen. What else can you imagine when were not dealing with a house even with the rarsz thin margin? What kind of power do they still have being in charge, especially of the committees? Well, remember: all bills, all spending bills per the constitution originate in the House of Representatives. Now there was no big blue wave hats off to Kevin Mccarthy, every single Republican running for RE election in this election, every single one of them won their race. Not one was defeated. Nancy Pelosi predicted she would pick up twelve seats, she lost more than twelve seats and there are still more coming, and so I have got to tell you net loss of one Senate seat and then the two still to play out, but if they have the trifecta,
the Democrats between the House and Senate and the presidency thats how we got Obamacare and they have got this list that Rick ran through that we are still and David ran through. That can still happen, and so it is absolutely pivotal that every person in Georgia participate and that the legal team continues to pursue all of these elections until they are actually certified David. Thank you so much im. Sorry, we dont have time to get back to you, though. I think we would all agree because its a fact it was a red wave down ballot. American people rejected what the left were pushing, what the Democrats were pushing and yet now they seem to think that they have got some kind of a mandate. Obviously they are mistaken, David Jason Ric. Thank you for welcome me tonight. I appreciate it also breaking tonight. Republicansrepublicans have flip house seat in California, Blue House seat in California, Blue California, with David Value, Vala, ousting Cox,
21st district. This wave continues. This was a rematch from twenty eighteen enough to the unexpected losses for the house. Democrats leave Speaker Pelosi with a tiny, rarsz thin margin heading into January, and the party is still pointing fixers ahead. The search for a new democratic congressional Campaign Committee chief in hopes of avoiding disaster, two thousand and twenty two good luck with that Steve Achilles congressman Elect. Congratulations, Sir Darrell Issa. Thank you very much for being here, as I left this last segment and now perfectly to you here. It Reilly. It was a red wave. This was a rejection of what the Democrats have been moving. The left is moving identity, politics, the cancel tellculture. You know crazy relationships
with the IRAN North Carolina tradition of vowing. We wanted a good economy, we got it congressman Issa. Do you see when it comes to the nature of what it is that is happening here with the house? What we know Nancy Pelosi is going to be back in. How do you think this is going to work out with this Rarsz Razo margin? We only need four or five Democrats to fear for their own future and we can stop legislation not as effectively as the fire wall of the Senate, but we can stop it. Whats. Important, though, is that with Steve, Scalise and leader Mccarthy is that he would going to be able to offer real valid alternatives, motions that are reasonable, that at least six or seven Democrats, perhaps in fear for their own mortality, politically will vote for, and that means we are going to win. We are going to be able to win
against Nancy Pelosi and the way we werent able to for the last two years. Part of it is quite candidly. The voters elected two years ago, in large numbers years ago, in large numbers, Michelle Steele, Kim David Valdao and Mark Garcia Democrat, have gone republican again, congressman Scalise. They won in part in twenty eighteen because they talked about the issues they said we are not in to impeachment. We dont like Nancy Pelosi. We care about your issues. What is the first thing, and really the only thing at the did? They did impeachment, while the coronavirus was coming over from China that that was clearly the american people were watching and they cared at least stop them from doing damage in that regard, congressman Scalise what is at
the top of your list about what matters in this next term coming up Tammy the thing that matters most to me and my republican colleagues is fighting for those small businesses, those hard working families that have been left behind that are struggling right now. A lot of these states, mostly lead by Democrats, are shutting everything down, and you know states like Florida where they are opening things up and Texas are doing well. States like New York and California, where they are shutting everything down are doing really really poorly and businesses are floundering. People by the way are dying from Non Covid related things. They are not getting mammograms and colonoscopies kids not being allowed to go back to school, are being denied their educational future. We will be fighting for all of those people that are being left behind. Look have you got this vaccine? You saw the great report today that, because of president trumps leadership with operation warp speed, there is now a contract with United Airlines to distribute the vaccine all throughout the United States. This is a military effort with
the smartest minds from the FDA from the greatest drug companies in the world like Pfizer, mow, Concernna, so many others I mean we are seeing president trumps policies work for families. What were not see something speaker, Pelosi care about those families and thats, why she was rejected at the polls because of wanting to defund the police wanting to raise taxes literally pushing a pro abortion agenda when we were trying to fight for the unborn, including babies, born alive outside of the womb that the Democrats still wanted to allow to die. These are the radical socialist agenda items that Pelosi fought for. We are going to be fighting for those hardworking families, thats good news, clearly with what happened now and the dilsz array and being so wrong with what happened. Congressman Mcclintock. There is going to be another wave in two thousand and twenty two thats. Of course, where you have to make some headway in getting some democrats to work with you at the same time, sir, there seems to be this fantasy that, in
the event, Mr Trump is not in the White House, his seventy three million voters are going to disappear and his agenda doesnt matter and the red wave that happened based on his accomplishments, that that is just going going to become a memory. Do you imagine the Trump agenda the merit of what we voted for, and the transformation that happened in these last four years is still on the minds you have Republicans and still will be be represented, regardless of who is in the White House. More than Republicans, I think there are a lot of Democrats and independents that are starting to connect the dots between the policies of the democratic left and what thee have consistently delivered. Thats. Why we made gains in California people living with that firsthand? You look whatever the democratic left controls policy. You will see exactly the same things: failing schools, rampant homelessness, rising crime, skyrocketing energy costs, water shortages, unaffordable, housing, high unemployment, crushing regulations and tasks, failing businesses
fleeing families, thats. What the democratic left delivers and I think Californians are getting fed up with that, and I think Americans across the country are looking at places like California and New York and saying we dont want to go there thats why the Georgia election is so important. Well, I will tell you, I think Americans know they are going to look to men like you when it comes to being a firewall against the rest of the country becoming San Francisco or LOS Angeles, because thats not what we have certainly voted for, not by any means at all.
