12:04 pm
underway and they're clearing away debris so power can be restored and evacuees can come back. no time frame for that though. could be after thanksgiving. at the same time, more than search teams are shifting through ashes searching for remains and looking for bodies and looking for vehicles in driveways and roads and we heard where a car got stuck in front and all the people perished and 52 evacuees wait out with friends and shelters and mall parking lots have become tect -- tent cities with survivors sharing stories of how they escaped the flames. >> a couple days later we made it through and the cars in front of where we stopped were all on fire. guardrails were gone and people were driving crazy zipping back and forth without looking. >> reporter: the president today has been expressing his

12:06 pm
middle a complete fire storms where in every direction flames rage and there's no way out or where neighbors have died in their homes or while sitting on their porches but that's the reality in northern california and it's what they're trying to prevent now in the south. team fox coverage continues and our team correspondent jonathan hunt from the wind-swept hills in malibu outside l.a. >> reporter: the city of malibu remains sealed off. tens of thousands of people evacuated and anxious to get back home. i imagine it will be at least 24 hours when they are allowed to return and when they do, this is the heartbreaking scene that awaits many families. the iconic chimeny stack often the only thing standing and left standing a beach cruiser left
12:07 pm
the saddle left melted to some extent but otherwise intact. as we come along here what was presumably the office area of this particular home filing cabinets scorched and everything in them lost. vehicles the same, shep. just completely scorched, completely destroyed. and i think it's easy to think of malibu as an area of millionaires an mansions, well, it does have that too but this is the street i lived on a decade ago. this is where i lived when my youngest daughter was born and the street i taught my eldest daughter to ride a bike and a dozen homes are gone and many live in these ranch-style homes and hard working americans far from the celebrities malibu is often associated with and those
12:08 pm
ordinary americans are coming back to this kind of devastating scene. it's going to be heartbreaking for so many families over the next few days and weeks, shep. >> shepard: i had no idea, jonathan. what's it like for you being there now? >> reporter: you broke up slightly there. i think you were saying you had no idea i lived here and what's it like? it's heartbreaking. there's a guy on the corner, his home is no longer there. i don't know where he is. he used to come out and help my oldest daughter, jordan. you know her well. this is where i taught or the ride a bike and he used to come out and encourage her and clap if she got on two wheels. his home is completely destroyed. i hope he got out. i believe he got out but i don't know. i have other friends who live across the way here. i've been down to check on their homes and they're thankfully okay and they're home has not been touched but so many people
12:09 pm
have suffered so much and it's important to emphasize these are not millionaires. these are ordinary americans in very simple homes. many have lived here for decade and took the homes over from their parents. they were here when it was just country side before any celebrity discovered malibu and now they have nothing left. >> shepard: very sad, the best to them. recounts, believe it or not, are exceptionally rare in america. fewer than 1 in 100 races every require a recount and rarer is a recount that changes the results. that said, the recount is going forward in florida. and we'll take you there as reporting continues this tuesday afternoon and an astounding new report coming from the white house. that's later. smile dad.

12:16 pm
they'll make sure to make the count. >> shepard: no election has every been overturned with a margin this large by more than 17,000 votes. now there's a senate run-off. the republican center cindy hyde smith running for a full term under scrutiny for a comment she made putting the state's troubled history of race and politics back in the spotlight. her opponent is the democrat mike espy and served as agriculture secretary for president bill clinton and trying to become the state's first black senator since reconstruction. here's the comment causing the controversy. it's from the second of the month but just coming forward. senator hyde-smith was campaigning and how she described her loyalty to a
12:17 pm
supporter. the phrase, public hanging on the front row is especially loaded in the state of mississippi. the naacp said there were more than 700 lynchings in the united states between 1882 and 1968 and more happened in mississippi than in any other state, about 1-8 in a state where the current population is nearly 40% black. senator hyde-smith issued a statement that she didn't mean anything negative and an exaggerated expression of regard and added she will not speak of the incident again and has not. trace gallagher reports on the state of the race. >> reporter: shepard, records show african american women and teenagers were among those lynched and the naacp has come down hard on the comment calling
12:18 pm
it sick and going on to stay, quoting to envision this brutal and degenerate type of frame during a time when black people and jewish people and immigrant are still being targeted by while nationalists is hateful and hurtful. when hyde-smith's component was first asked about the comment on cnn he deflected saying we need leaders to bring us together but later his campaign called hyde-smith's comments reprehensible saying there's no place in our political discourse. in mississippi and our country we need leaders not dividers and her words shows she lacks the information and judgment to represent the people of our state. as for hyde-smith, she accepted an endorsement from the national right to life president and asked repeatedly about her comment. >> we put out a statement yesterday and we stand by the statement. >> can you expand why you said
12:19 pm
it and what you meant by it and why people in the state should not see it as offensive? >> we put out the statement yesterday and it's available and we stand by that statement. >> reporter: that statement reads quote, in a comment on november 2 i referred to accepting a speaking engagement and any attempt to turn it into a negative connotation is ridiculous and one person said the controversial comment could have been phrased better but meant no offense and has no ill will in her heart. >> shepard: in georgia, folks are still waiting to find out who their next governor will be. a federal judge last night ordered the state to wait until at least this friday, friday at least to certify any results. the democrat, stacy abrams,
12:20 pm
sueded for more time to get the votes counted. she's fighting to become the state's first black woman governor and it's so close it could go to a run-off. her opponent has declared victory. we're reporting live from atlanta. >> reporter: democrats are celebrating a series of federal court rulings in their favor. just today a judge blocked elections official in guinet county because voters failed to write their birthday or got it wrong. it follows a separate ruling for a good-faith review of provisional ballots for voters flagged because of issues with their voter registration. brian kemp is a fraction of a point above the 50% flesh hold to win outright. abrams hopes to get enough votes to force the race into a
12:21 pm
december 4 runoff. >> she needs to vet 12,000 votes with provisional ballots from democratic counties she can get part of the way there but brian kemp's campaign doesn't believe there's enough ballots outstanding to bridge that gap even if she gets all the votes. >> reporter: they accuse abrams of using the courts to steal elections an the abram's camp accuses them of trying to suppress voters. >> shepard: ahead the latest on lawsuits involving the trump administration, cnn suing the white house over the suspension of the white house co correspondent's press tab and the fight over one attorney general. that's next. i am a family man.

12:26 pm
jeff sessions was forced to resign. the white house said the appointment is legal. andrew napolitano has disagreed. our correspondent catherine herridge reports. >> reporter: it allows the president to make a temporary appointment. >> no question the president and the department of justice leadership has confidence in matt whitaker. he has a full and legal authority under the vacancy reform act of 1998 where senior who's been -- where someone that's been a senior official can act as attorney general. >> reporter: they're looking at whether he had the authority to make the department because whitaker was called a senior or principle officer. >> yes, within certain limits. however, the question is whether
12:27 pm
he also qualifies under the constitution. that's a closer call. >> whenever you get something not settled you'll always have this run of unintended consequences from it. >> reporter: and this morning the state of maryland filed these court papers challenging whitaker's appointment as acting attorney general. the legal challenge comes as part of an existing obama care related lawsuit and here's the key quote, the appointment of whitaker as acting attorney general instead of deputy attorney general rosenstein violates the succession act as well as the appointments clause of the constitution. the state of maryland is seeking an injunction in the case. whitaker is consulting with ethics officials at the justice department and we could get a legal opinion at some point today and the justice department is declining to comment on the maryland suit for now. >> shepard: catherine herridge report from washington. new today, the first lady is calling for a top security aide

12:29 pm
decision to strip acosta from accessing white house grounds after last week's press conference in which he question the president refusing to give up the microphone when approached by the intern. the aforementioned have infringed about his first and fifth amendment rights. they have also taken issue with the process. here's an apart of the lawsuit, quote, defendants did not allow the plaintiff to be heard nor provided any avenue to challenge or appeal the revocation of his credentials. rather, defendants state they'd do not plan to rescind the revocation of acosta's credentials. they said cnn is grand standing and will fight the suit and quote, the first amendment is not served when a single reporter of more than 150 present attempts to monopolize the floor. if there's no check on this behavior it impedes the ability
12:30 pm
of the president and white house staff and members of the media to conduct business. by the way, the white house c e corresponde correspondent's association made a statement. representing jim acosta is a big-time lawyer in d.c. >> shepard: melania trump is calling for the firing of a white house staffer. >> reporter: last month the first lady took her first solo trip to africa. there were reports the first lady was not happy with the national security adviser to the preside president, his deputy. the spokesperson for the first lady said ricardo should no
12:31 pm
longer be working in the white house. this the statement in full, it's the position of the first lady ricardo no longer deserve the honor of serve white house. with all the speculation involving who might be leaving and who might be staying and there's a lot of it these days, normally the west wing will say there's no personnel announcements at this time and you'll know when the president has lost the confidence of someone. in this case, the office of the first lady has gone ahead and said the deputy to john bolton shouldn't be work at the white house. shepard. >> shepard: d.c. law makers are back in the white house and the first job is to avoid a partial government shutdown. there will be a showdown. that's next. man: when the steel mill shut down, it left behind an environmental issue. man 2: it was environmentally contaminated.

12:40 pm
money with other spending measures. the fight could complicate lawmakers approving hurricane relief or the need for hurricane disaster need could make the border wall battle easy as pie. >> shepard: look at the dow now. the overnight here's the reason this is of interest. overnight all the signs were this was going to be a big day. all the trends were up. the early morning numbers were great. the early morning reality was good and then all of a sudden. we plunged more than 600 points yesterday but the big story monday was oil prices. it's a huge story today because the oil markets have closed for the day and the numbers are eye-popping and now historic. the fox business network's correspondent reporting. >> reporter: if you look you will see prices settling at $59,
12:41 pm
$69 per barrel. the steepest plunge in more than three years and worth noting 12 consecutive sessions down. the longest losing streak ever. we're clearly at a new 2018 low. very much a reversal from the patterns we saw earlier this year when the u.s. said it would re-impose sanctions on iran. we saw the prices get support. in the meantime, production never been stronger in the u.s., in saudi arabia and russia and there's fear about over supply and that's part of what is pushing oil prices lower. we're seeing that show up in the stock market as well, shep. >> shepard: the stock market hasn't been able to decide what it thinks. >> reporter: and it looked like green on the screens after two days of very heavy selling for the dow. three days of heavy selling on the s&p 500 and now seems not
