5:09 pm
in 2021, spending caps ended under democrat rule, since then they have increased spending by over 400 billion, in just discretionary spending that is crazy. now they are fearmongerring that republicans will default, republicans will not default, but we want us to address our debt and deficits, we have to get this fiscal insanity in order, now is the time. since 1985 we used the debt limit 11 times to get huge fiscal spending caps, budget reforms, things that help deliver and stop reckless spending we need it to that again. elizabeth: we're not protects american people frfrom inflation. we have long wait times at irs and passport, people waiting for benefits and health care records that is blamed on government workers

5:13 pm
good at is brands themselves making a big deal about it. elizabeth: we done see the banging of podium on that. let's watch senator scott. in his ad about what is going on in the nation. >> we're on the road to woke socialism, and republicans are just a speed bump, we can't keep doing the same old thing, time for republicans to be bold, speak the truth and stop caving in, help us change our party, join us. elizabeth: republicans doing that? >> you know i keep hearing we need to speak about this, we need to actually take action on things that matter. your last segment you are talking about fact that we need to cut spending. republicans have been just as guilty as democrats in terms of increasing spending, i don't want to hear anythi talking about anything, i want to see real results and see them with dollar signs attached, going down.
5:14 pm
that is what i care about. elizabeth: this is how it is goiing in the house. democrats are even fighting over things like saying the pledge of allegiance. >> thank you, mr. chairman. we're charged with vindicating the constitutional rights of our fellow americans, national pledge of allegiance is a national symbol of pride and unity it was a great honor to invite one of my constituents this morning to offer the pledge. my amendment gives the committee opportunity to begin each ofs this meetings with the pledge of allegiance. >> we pledge allegiance every day on the floor, i don't know why we should do it twice in the same day. >> i'm not seeing mernadler mr. nadler on the floor when the pledge is done, most members are not present. >> from new york mr. nadler. once he completes his phone call. for his opening statement.

elizabeth: they can -- you know what everyone stand up and say the pledge of allegiance, he is on the phone in the middle of a hearing? >> yeah, it is justin santee. i love our flag, i love saying the pledge. but again at the end of the day people can't put food on the table. we have a lot of energy issues, these are not things that every day americans care about. it seem -- >> they care about the country. i hear when you are saying if you care about the nation and a serious as you do aspect in attitude who is needed to fix the nation and get together and unify, do you it with the pledge of allegiance, you agree with what we're talking about, you need to stop with insanity in dc . this is now out of rails. our inflation rate is now headed into double digits if they don't stop, they are
5:16 pm
talking getting rid of fiscal caps to spending, that is what they are talking about. >> even the treasury put out report that shows that level of spending is unsustainable, and over the next several decades we could spend 60 trillion to in trust it is time for congress to come together and not focus on themselves but the american people and fix it. elizabeth: 60 trillion, world gdt is 65 trillion, thank you karol. this fight, over in ending the covid state of emergency. >> we break down the day of confusion out of hunter biden and his legal team, they ran to biden administration demanding an investigate anyone disseminating0 hunter biden's computer data. wasn't there all russian disinformation anyway?

elizabeth: is this another long drawn out dc investigation. or are you getting answers
5:21 pm
this is special counts robert hur. now on stick with his criminal investigation of president mishandling u.s. secrets. reporter: this is robert hur's second official day on the job, he has been getting briefed for weeks. since appointed by attorney general garland. hur and his team are going over documents taken from penn biden center in november, and biden residents in december and january and documents taken from rehoboth beach. it is possible that some of the documents that were taken, which including handwritten notes had some claclassified information, they are not marked classified.
5:22 pm
material will come back to doj with hur and his team, hur is working at an know disclosed -- an undisclosed location in washington. white house continues to be in damage control with a new chief of staff, jeff zine at helm for his first day. doj is being told or white house is telling reporters to reach out to doj, they are not saying going anything about it and "wall street journal" first to report fbi agents are negotiates with the team of former vice president mike pence to search his home and office in indiana and an office in dc, pence last week told fox news he has and will be cooperative with the investigation. small amount of documents
5:23 pm
marked classified were find in his possession. story just continues. >> it does, we need you on it david thank you. elizabeth: joining us now former acting u.s. attorney general matthew whitaker. great to see you. we have biden team -- excuse me lawyers for the president, in there scrubbing his property since before the midterms. nobody believes that this is serious to find out what is really going on with the president taking u.s. secrets and how he used them and for what reason. and now house oversight chair james comer saying white house or justice department blocked the national archives even talking about how the president mishandled classified documents. >> good to be with you. i think there are a couple of interesting pieces in each case whether penn biden center or lawyer first there
5:24 pm
going through the fields -- thefiles, each case president and his team had a chance to if through before the fbi came in. that is a different set up from what we've seen with president trump's raid on mar-a-lago. this vice president pence is a interesting case. to your reporting they are negotiating with him on whether or not to go look at his files. this is a curious situation. at the same time, president trump was treated differently from the other two. elizabeth: we're on new ground with the next story, we know bill clinton had a problem with his brother, and jimmy carter had a problem with his carter. biden lawyers now stepping on their own feet to contradict themselves, hehunter biden lawyers go to the biden justice
5:25 pm
department, they ask. -- confirming the data is real. mud slide laptop is real, today issued a statement saying, they are not confirming the laptop left at the computer repair shop was real. they did not say that in their initial letters. what is going on? >> it is all over the map. can't argue both sides. contract with repair facility in delaware of the clear, after 90 days it was abandoned and ownership went to the shop and shop's owner who could do with it whatever he wanted. this information has not been out there completely, i don't think that anyone has seen the entire contents of the lap top. i -- my biggest concern in this story, where -- you
5:26 pm
know why now? did joe biden or you know his lawyers say to hunter, we need a counter offensive, we need you to go out and fight back wherever you can fight. >> how about hunter biden come on media. and his lawyers come on media and talk to us and talk to us about every e-mail and text that is in contention. instead of running to the biden administration to get his father's cronies to do his bidding, listen who what hunter biden said in the past about the laptop. >> is that laptop yours? >> it is so you don't need a laptop, you have a book. i don't know. >> you don't know. >> i truly doe not know the answer. >> did you leave a laptop with a repairman. >> not they remember. >> not that you remember. >> no. but whether or not someone has my laptop or whether or
5:27 pm
not it was a it was hacked or there exists a laptop i don't know. >> are i missing a laptop. >> not that i know of, but you you know, read the book, you will realize i was not keeping tabs on possession very well for about a 4 year period of time. elizabeth: does not know if it is his, claims in that interview it was hacked. bottom line is, isn't it corrupt for biden side of aisle to try to criminalize journalism to ask people who owe their jobs to joe biden -- e-mails are real, cbs, and nbc, and cnn, the times, "washington post," this is after two plus years off biden family claiming it was russian disinformation now there are letters today saying that is real, this is nonsense. >> yeah. i could not agree more. biden family wants to stand
5:28 pm
behind the carefully worded statements instead of answers the difficult questions that would get to the heart of the issues. elizabeth: matthew whitaker thank you. this story coming up. we have a new state virginia, moving to stop what is going on with transgender athletes in sports in schools in the state of ve virginia, fight over ending covid state of emergency, dr. nicole sapphire on "the evening edit" next. ish to make new ones every day with verzenio. verzenio is proven to help you live significantly longer when taken with fulvestrant. verzenio + fulvestrant is for hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer that has progressed after hormone therapy. diarrhea is common, may be severe, or cause dehydration or infection. at the first sign, call your doctor, start an antidiarrheal, and drink fluids. before taking verzenio,

5:35 pm
will happen once it rolled back, part is when people are hospitalized right now with covid, hospitals are reimbursed 20% higher rates by medicare, some people suspect you have the people over counting covid hospitalizations because there are incentives. if you remove the higher reimbursement rate, preliminarily you will see lower hospitalization rates we may bet real numbers. someone who goes in with any form of newmonialia will be treated. >> a couple things. >> go ahead. >> one thing, i'm concerned about telehealth services, they have expanded that is crucial for people with difficult access to health services with mental health and substance abuse and others. a lot of that will be rolled back, you won't have as much
