expected. yet five months after the u.s.' deadly afghanistan exit, the president appears confused again this week with his adversaries on the mar. on the march. >> draw your attention to that army report, an investigative report that's come out about the leadup to the withdrawal in afghanistan. it interviewed many military officials and officers who said the administration ignored the handwriting on the wall. does any of that ring true to you? >> no. no. that's not what i was told. ♪ >> you were told that the u.s. administration officials were prepared? they knew it was time to get out? >> no, what i was told -- no one told me that. look, there was no good time to get out, and we were back in this war of attrition. and there was no way we were ever going to unite ukraine -- i mean, excuse me, iraq --
afghanistan. maria: coming up, ohio congressman and the house intel committee ranking member mike turner on the impact on america. plus, breaking news today, hillary clinton's illegal surveillance of donald trump as new details emerge of the russia collusion bug lie -- big lie. then, is it all just a ruse? the administration hitting the panic button on russia while inflation hits 40-year highs, oil prices at $94 a barrel friday afternoon and more americans disapprove of president biden than ever before. then, almost as unliked as joe biden, dr. anthony fauci. >> the american people don't trust the words coming out of your mouth. every day you appear on tv, you do more damage than good when it comes to educating the public on covid. maria: kansas senator roger marshall is here on his

wednesday. but just like afghanistan, president biden does not seem to have a plan for any americans left behind. >> what's scenarios would you put american troops to rescue and get americans out? >> there's not. that's a world war when americans and russians start shoot shooting at each other. >> not even on behalf of simply evacuating americans? >> no. how do you do that? how do you even find themsome. maria: wow. ohio congressman mike turner is the ranking member on the house intelligence committee and is among those who receives classified briefings on this crisis. congressman, it's good to see you this morning, thanks very much. we want to get more information on what is taking place. the white house has sent thousands more troops to nato countries in eastern europe. what are you expecting? are you expecting war to break out in europe this week? >> well, maria, this is absolutely happening, as you have related, as a result of the weakness of the biden administration. they've shown weakness.
russia is taking advantage of that. we see over 100,000 russian troops amazed outside of ukrainf ukraine. there is no threat from ukraine to russia. this is actually russia's continued threats to the west and to the united states. they see ukraine moving closer to the west, closer to the e.u., closer to nato, and they want to squash that being a thorntarian regime -- authoritarian e reregime. i'm very concerned that putin has gone beyond point of no return and that we may see war opening up in europe. and this is going to be very dangerous for the united states and for our allies. we have nato allies that are in the area that could be at risk, that could become entangled in a broader russia aggressiveness and, of course, we see russia modernizing their military and taking direct threats to the united states. maria: yeah. so tell me about the impact on america because president biden has not communicated what the impact is.
we're looking right now at all of the u.s. drops right now stationed in nato countries and where they are. another 3,000 troops are being sent to poland in the upcoming days. what is the impact on america should war break out in europe? this week? >> well, it could trigger our nato obligations to engage. as the president's lester holt interview was saying we can't go to russia, but, in fact, our obligations under nato is that nato and nato countries protect themselves against a russian attack, including the baltics, estonia, latvia where, poland where we're sending troops, a broader scope conflict would include, of course, the united states if russia should so choose to do so. but the other aspect of in that's even more threatening is if you look at what russia's to doing and their modernization of nuclear weapons, their aggressiveness in cyber attacks, what they're doing even in space to attack and undermine our space-based capabilities clearly
show that russia's putting itself in a footprint to challenge the united states, and that means the world is much more dangerous for us. maria: so i know that the nord stream 2 sanctions have been talked about. this is supposed to be one of our points of leverage to put sanctions on, but why aren't sanctions on already to deter putin from invading? >> right. there should have been some very strong stance taken by the biden administration for them to communicate to russia that there will be consequences to russia. of course, the first thing that the biden administration did was reverse the trump administration sanctions on nord stream 2, so it's being completed under the biden administration's approval. now they're talking about perhaps reversing that, going back to the trump administration's sanctions that should have remained in place. but the biden administration has shown weakness. they've taken no steps, they've taken no concrete efforts to even ill illustrate to vladimir
putin that there will be real consequences and what these consequences mean to russia. maria: well, look, we've seen joint military training between russia and china, and i know iran has also been brought into the fold. talk to us about this partnership of china, russia, iran, what it means to america after we know president obama cut defense spending through that sequestration years ago. also tell us about the readiness of the u.s. military right now, particularly the navy if as it compares to the china navy. >> right. you're absolutely right. so during the obama administration with sequestration which were deep cuts to our defense spending, we had modernization plans that would have kept us at pace with china and russia. now we're trying to play catch up, and if we don't have reinvestment, we'll be behind, in a situation where china and russia have military capabilities that are greater than our own. and what, obviously, is of grave concern as you look at china,
russia and iran, there are no countries that threaten china, russia and iran, but there are a number of countries that china threatens, russia is currently threaten and iran itself, including its threats to israel and its seeking of an atomic weapon. this could open as you have been foretelling of this issue of what does it mean if russia invades ukraine, a much different world over the next 10-20 years as we see these powerful nations that are threats to the united states gaining in military capability, gobble up their neighbors as they invade. maria: look, i think it's pretty clear9 that the democrats have put america in a very bad spot, a vulnerable position, and now we have this breaking news this morning, something our viewers were well aware of, that hillary clinton made up a story to take down her political operative, donald trump, back in 2016. democrat-paid operatives illegally tracked their opponent's communications during
a presidential campaign and then did it again to a sitting president. your reaction to what we learned this morning about the russia hoax lie. >> well, this is absolutely outrageous. and when you look at durham's pleadings in the michael sussman case, he is basically laying out a case of where a number of laws have been broken by the clinton campaign and where people are being protected by sussman's lawyers. in fact, the pleading is about trying to convince michael sussman and the court that he's not being well served by his own lawyers because they're, in fact, protecting the clinton campaign and others in the a allegations of their bias. so the pleading set out though, as you just anticipated, that durham has evidence of a come pro-- compromising of computer systems and an attempt to basically frame the president of the united states as having russia ties. i think this is going to lead in the end to brennan, clapper and comey. what we see is not just
political shenanigans or opposition research that you would see in the normal, you know, campaigns where people are trying to find information out about their opponent. this is where government is being used, where information that's political opposition research that is false is being made up, is trying to be placed into the government, into the fbi, into undertake the criminal investigations that are absolutely false. maria: yeah. >> this is a whole new level of corruption and is a grave concern. if. maria: yeah. and we want to know what exactly jim comey and clapper and brennan started working with the hillary clinton campaign to take down her adversary. but, frankly, these actions are characteristic of a third world dictatorship, not a democracy. so my question to you is, adam schiff, your colleague on the left, the democrats have been in charge of the house since 208. 2018. they not only have ignored, but actually denied, denied the intelligence confirming that hillary clinton created the
russia hoax and used the obama/biden administration to spy on trump. will you, if you become chairman of the house intelligence committee if the gop takes the majority in november, will you hold hearings to finally reveal the truth? what will you do? >> absolutely. we have to get to the truth. this is a threat to our democracy itself. it doesn't matter really which political campaign this is this is or which political party this is. this is so wrong, and allegations of such level of illegal activity that goes directly to, you know, our faith in our own government that the truth must be found. durham's doing a great job. i appreciate that he's got this in the court system and is trying to bring this to light. but we have to get to the bottom of this, we have to find the answers so this never happens again, so we never have americans having to distrust their own government because of the politicization of the fbi, of our intelligence community. this is very wrong, this is very much a danger, and it doesn't matter which side of the aisle
this is, everyone should be outraged and want to get to the bottom of this. maria: but are you going to make sure to get to the bottom of it? congressman, i've got to tell you, people are sick and tired of things like this happening with absolutely no accountability. we know that the fbi knew that the dossier was a bunch of bunk. we know that because there was a three-day interview back in january of 2017 where the fbi interviewed can cheng coe, the subsource, and he said, oh, no, we made it up, it was friends having beers, we were just joking around, and yet that dossier was used as a part of an actual official intelligence report. the media ran with it. when will we see accountability? >> right. and i think that's what's so important about what durham is doing because, you know, as you look and we all do for accountability, this is a criminal case that he's brought in federal court. durham is laying out the information of his very
exhaustive, and i believe, toro -- thorough investigation. we will use every tool we have in the intelligence committee and jordan on the judiciary committee and others will make certain that we use every aspect of congressional power to get to the bottom of this. but there is accountability as these criminal cases move forward. durham is getting to the bottom of this, he's bringing forth allegations a, although very troubling, are a result of his investigation, and they're in criminal court, and that's where accountability can be found. maria: all right. if we see russia invade ukraine on wednesday or tuesday, whenever it is in the next couple of days, what's the u.s.' first move? >> well, we're going to have to immediately work to shore up our allies and rally nato to make certain that all of the nations in europe that are under nato have their militaries on alert and put weapons systems in place to protect themselves, and the administration immediately has to move on sanctions.
maria: congressman, thanks very much for your leadership. we'll be watching all of that. we appreciate your time. mike turner this morning in ohio. quick break and then at least ten states have announced changes to their mask mandates, but the white house wants you to ignore them. coming up, virginia lieutenant governor winsome sears is here on how she's pushing back against the biden agenda as his approval ratings continue to plummet, next. ♪ ♪

this week virginia moving to end the mask mandates in public schools as several other states have eliminated mask requirements in the last two weeks. joining me right now to talk more about that after an historic win in virginia, lieutenant governor wynnsome -- winsome sears. thanks so much for being with us. >> thank you for having me, maria, and good morning to your listeners. maria: and congratulations to you on your first vote. i want to hear about that, why you did it and what that felt like, lieutenant governor. >> yeah. so my very first tie-breaking vote which, you know, i've been trying to get to for so long was a bill that wanted the judges to say why they gave the sentencing that they did when they moved out of the guidelines. finish and it's a good bill to want to have except that it was poorly written. it would have had unintended consequences that we actually could have foreseen before it happened. so, you know, i voted against
it, and some people might say you voted against the since cart race9 -- incarcerated. no, i voted against a poorly-written bill which would have made bad law, and we would have had to have come back next year to fix it. so, you know, you've without to get it right -- you've got to get it right. maria: this is all part of your push to insure the law is followed. and, lieutenant governor, i think our viewers this morning are frustrated with the lawlessness that we see across the country whether it be unconstitutional mandates or smash and grabs throughout california and elsewhere. where is this lawlessness coming from, and what needs to be done? >> well, i think it's coming from the highest levels, and i'm talking about from the presidency on down where there is no leadership. there's a vacuum. and, in fact, they seem to be following what's happening on the streets. that's not going to work for anyone because the leader has to lead. that's why they're called
leaders. and they have to show the right way, the righteous way. there is right and wrong, and you can't look at what's happening in the streets and smash and grab and say, well, it's just social justice. no, it's theft, and it's destroying our economy. we've got to have people who are stopping, you know, where's the wind blowing, and that's what we're about. they follow the polls and they don't have a righteous bone in their body. come on. let's lead m -- lead. maria: and you are leading. lieutenant governor, i want to take a break and ask you the importance of education in your life as well as what's happening in our students' schools these days, plus president biden's pledge to appoint only a brach woman to the -- black woman to the supreme court. is america really racist like he keeps suggesting? a lot for you when we come right back. stay with us. ♪

>> -- will be unconstitutional because article vi of provides no religious test shall ever be required. i think the 14th and 19th amendments also extend that to no racial or gender tests. nobody should be excluded because they don't fit a racial or gender criteria. if. maria: that was legal scholar alan dershowitz with me earlier this month calling biden's criteria for a supreme court justice unconstitutional. biden has vowed to nominate a black woman as justice stephen breyer's replacement, and he will begin meeting with his short list of candidates this upcoming week. i am back with virginia lieutenant governor win winsome sears. i've got to get your take on what's to going on across the country in terms of the masks coming off. i know that governor youngkin,
using emergency powers to expedite a bill to end the school mask mandates, but, lieutenant governor, the teachers union boss, randi weingarten, is saying that the real issue when it comes to covid restriction ares is make manying people feel safe, not the actual science. she believes kids and teachers should wear masks until there's zero transmission. is this about power and displol tell us how you see it from virginia's standpoint. >> yeah, well, she doesn't speak for the us, she doesn't speak for the parents. the parents voted for our ticket, the parents voted for governor youngkin and myself, and, by the way, they voted for our house so we could have some semblance of reasonableness coming back, you know? common sense has walked back into our government here in virginia, and virginia is leading the way. so the governor fulfilled his am pain promise, and he -- campaign promise, and he told everybody if you want to wear a mask, wear a mask. but allow the parents to make that decision for their own
children because as far as we can tell, maria, the parents still -- the children still belong to their parents. they don't belong to the state, not just yet, not if we can help it. maria: right. >> some parents filed issues with it, and now we have a bill that's going through, and it looks like it will fully pass, and we'll have a law here that parents will make that decision after all. maria: oh, my goodness. lieutenant governor, parents across the country right now are rooting you on and thanking you. they are grateful for your leadership. i can tell you for sure. look at all of these policies and what they've produced. on friday oil prices passed $94 a barrel. joe biden on his first day in office killed the xl pipeline, and we have higher gasoline prices as a result and and oil prices at $94 a barrel. is there anything you can do in the leadership in virginia to counter this inflation that americans are feeling? >> well, one of the things that
we are going to be doing and we have started doing is to get rid of the gas tax, we're trying. i think it passed the house. i think it failed in the senate. so now the house bills are coming over to the senate, and i think that people are beginning -- senators are beginning to understand, this is real. this is really hurting our pocketbooks. and you may have enough money to carry you through, but the rank and file do not. and, by the way, i'm part of the rank and file. i don't have a lot of money either, so i understand the pain. and we also have the food tax. we need to get rid of that. even the outgoing democratic governor understood that that had -- that was necessary. so governor youngkin proposed all of these to help the people. and, by the way, the business tax. small businesses have suffered greatly from what the outgoing administration, governor northam, closed mom and pop stores, kept the big box stores
open, and it's destroyed part of us. so so we have got to get this thing together, and we hope the senators who are democrats will work with us to get it through because everybody is suffering. if. maria: you are the first black woman elected chief executive of a u.s. state. congratulations. what are your thoughts on president biden's pledge to appoint only a black woman to the supreme court? >> i'm actually second in command, so that's interesting because, you know, here i am second in command of the former capital of the confederacy. no one can say that we haven't gotten a long way from where we started. and furthermore if, i'm an immigrant, you know? i wasn't even born in america. and look, america has given me opportunities to succeed. now, we haven't is, you know, i'm not going to say that we haven't had problems. of course we've had. you know, slavery was an issue, and we've had red-lining,
segregation, blue code laws but here i sit to say we are not back in those days. are there problems still? yes. but here i am, and we are overcoming, america is becoming more and more -- we have a saying in church, you know, i may not be what i'm supposed to be, but i ain't what i used to be, and that's america. so we're coming back to the judgeship, you know, it really isn't unheard of for america to pick certain people to be on the supreme court. you know, we did it when we wanted. we clamoredded for a female judge, and we got sandra day o'connor, and that was a good thing. we clamored for a black judge, and we got thurgood marshall. that was a good thing. and here every we have sonia sotomayor, you know, it might not be the politics that we like, but we have her. and so, and then for the first hundred years of the supreme court's history, those people
expected the court to be partisan and, in fact, they were highly partisan. so what i'm hoping is that the president will bring us a judge, you know, if she's black, will bring us a judge who respects the constitution and will uphold the laws and will not be a partisan. you know, who will judge fairly. most importantly, that's what we need. maria: yeah. that's what we all need and what we all want. lieutenant governor, as you're speak, i'm getting the kills. we know that we will be following your journey, and this will not be your last stop on the journey. lieutenant governor, it's great to have you this morning. please come back soon. thank you so much for your leadership. >> thank you for having me and please pray for our troops already in to poland and, you know, i know there is a time for peace and a time for war, but let's hope that we don't have to go to war. maria: well said. thank you so much, lieutenant governor winsome sears. quick break and then senator
roger marshall is here on his probe into tony fauci's $105 million fortune -- 10.5 million fortune. how did he rack up such a fortune being in government for decades? why was america's doctor investing in chinese companies as he scrambled to cover up the origins of covid-19? we are connecting the dots next. ♪
release all records fully unredacted by the end of this week so congress and the american people can know the truth about nih's role in the origins of covid-19? >> so again, senator, i really -- it really pains me of to have to just point out to the american public how absolutely incorrect you are. what came out last night on project veritas was a grant that was submitted to darpa. then it distorted and said we funded the grant. we have never seen that grant, and we have never funded that grant. maria: that was dr. fauci once again changing the subject when asked about his annual salary of $434,000 at a congressional hearing last month. kansas senator roger marshall later exposed fauci's lies by obtaining previously unpublished financial disclosures that show he made $1.7 million in 2020 including income, royalties,
travel perks and investment gains. senator marshall joining us right now, he sits on the senate health committee and is also a medical doctor himself. senator, it's good to have you this morning, thanks so much for being here. thank you for your investigation into fauci and his covid cover-up. we want to get to that, but first, you have breaking news this morning. you're trying to end the mask mandates. tell us what you want to do this upcoming week. >> yeah, maria, well, good morning. we have two opportunities on the senate floor this week. one is to stop president biden's declaration of emergency, the covid declaration of emergency, and number two is to stop dr. fauci's medicare vaccine mandate. it is time for us to take the power and control of our everyday lives out of the hands of joe biden and dr. fauci. americans are ready to turn the page and live their own life, lives. i say this in the background that 95% of americans have some level of immunity now to covid.
the new case rate's about 10% of what it was a couple week ago. it is time to give the power of control back to americans. think about this medicare vaccine mandate just for a second. so this week it'll go into effect, and it's going to impact if every hospital, every doctor's office a, every nursing home in america. we already have a huge nursing shortage, and i think of those nurses i stood beside in march, april and may of 2020 that were working in an icu that now have natural immunity, but joe biden wants to fire them. so we have to stop that mandate. there's not a person in america that won't be impact9 by this whether you're waiting of to have an elective surgery done or you have a loved one you're trying to get into some type of a nursing facility. so we're trying to stop both of those and take the power away from them. maria: yeah. so why isn't the white house onboard about this? i know that president trump back in 2020 declared this emergency
because of covid, and it needs to be renewed every six months. that deadline to be renewed is march 1st. why won't biden just end it? if rather than renewing it as per what you're talking about? if is this about power? >> maria, you took the words right out of my mouth. this is about power. it's about control. this federal government really thinks that they know what's best for you and your children. they think they know whether this vaccine is right for your 2-year-old, your 4-year-old. they want to come in and prescribe to you what your education should look like for your children as well, but it is absolutely all about power and control. and congress can seize it back. we need to stand up and do our job and seize back that power. we have the ability to do it. maria: okay. let me move on to dr. fauci. i know you and jim jordan and rand paul are in full throttle mode at this point in putting
the pieces together. what are you planning to do once, if you do get the majority in the senate, in the way of investigating fauci and the potential cover-up of covid-19? >> yeah. maria, you make a great point, we have to have the majority to have subpoena power. so to get peek like peter dassic in front of us, they were the ones that dr. fauci was running the money through to fund vital gain of function in wuhan, china many. we need to get those people in front of us. there's a secret meeting that happened on february the 1, before the february 1st meeting scientists were telling doctor -- this is 2020 -- scientists were telling dr. fauci significant chance this came from a lab in wuhan, and somehow this secret meeting happens, and over the next two months those same people changed their mind. and those same people received some $3 billion in grants over the next two years. some of them renewable grants,
some of them were new monies as well. so we need to get those folks in front of us that were in that secret it meeting, the folks that signed the letters that allowed the national media to start, you know, pushing down existence people like tom cotton and myself, people who thought all i long this came from the laboratory in wuhan. and i'll guarantee you that jim jordan and jamie cohard and rand paul are like bulldogs, they're going to grab ahold of someone's seat, and we're not letting go until we get to the truth. maria: we have some of these e-mails to show, these are e-mails back and forth between fauci and collins saying we've got to change the subject, we've got to, you know, kill this narrative that it came from a lab. and then over the following two years, $3 billion in grant money transact? you've got to explan this to me -- explain this to me because i know some of the e-mails that we see are all redacted. are you getting what you need? and i know you're coming out with an op-ed to show who
exactly signed those letters. i didn't realize it was $3 billion in grant money. >> right. you know, maria, this is a tangled web. and, oh, what a tangle web we weave when first we practice to deceive. this web is just, it's so encased with dr. fauci and ecohealth in the middle of it. you think about the 27 authors that signed the lancet letter, a very reputable science magazine. and these are people, some of them who said in january, that this could have came from a lab. suddenly in february march these scientists saying there's no way it came from a lab, that there was zero chance it came from a lab. but 26 of the 27 authors of lancet or are connected to ecohealth. and again, the authors from those three different articles which gave the national media the opportunity to say that this had to come from nature, those authors received $3 billion. in grant money. maria: unbelievable. senator, i just want to say that
pfizer has forecast $54 billion in sales this year as demand for covid-19 vaccine and treatment still continues to rise and the white house continues to push it. if pfizer's making all this money, i'll just point out that the drug companies are among the biggest donators, the donations to the democrat party overall. i'm just throwing that out there because somebody's making a lot of money on all of this. before you go, you are a medical doctor. what can you say -- and it pains me to bring this up, by the way. but we are all watching president biden. we're all watching him, you know, shuffle, mince words. what do you see as a medical doctor? is there thinking you want to say in terms of perhaps considering a test once a year on mental capacity? what can you tell us as a medical doctor about the mental capacity of our commander in chief? is this a national security
issue? >> well, maria, unfortunately it is. and i think we're all concerned for president biden's mental health. i think that if you compare today's films from some of the films even a year ago a, you've seen a deterioration in his mental capacity. you know, maybe we need to be proactive and ask once a year, much like we ask our president to get a physical, something from his there that he also takes some type of a mental test. i think that may be something else that we'll be working on, that rand paul and i'll be discussing, jim jordan again, seeing if we think that's something that america deserves. i think we're all very concerned about his health, and it is a national security issue. maria: senator,ring thanks very much for joining me this morning. we so appreciate your time and your leadership. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ he knows he's covered with zero overdraft fees when he overdraws his account by fifty bucks or less. overdraft assist from chase. make more of what's yours.

primary. that primary scheduled for may 24th. now david perdue joins me this morning. david, it's great to have you. congratulations on entering in this race. why are you enter entering? >> well, maria, good morning. we have a divided party in our state, and it was caused by brian kemp, and it's really over the elections of 2020. brian kemp allows stacey abrams to manipulate p elections in 2020, and we saw the outcome. it cost us two u.s. senate seats, it cost us the majority in the united states senate and dramatically affected the outcome of the presidential race in georgia. if brian kemp had not caved in to stacey abrams, we wouldn't be in this mess. so we have a divided party, and i decided to run because i didn't want to watch this train wreck happen in georgia and turn our governorship over to stacey abrams. maria: well, this is really important, what you mention this morning, david, and i want to drill down on it because the
country is still needing and wanting evidence in terms of what went down in the election of 2020. what have you found in the way of evidence in terms of cheating in the to -- in the 2020 election in georgia? >> maria, the liberal media has totally misled the american people on this topic. i've given up my life over the last year, and in november during the runoff i filed three lawsuits, i asked for a special session several times of the governor to get at this and have forensic audits that would get to the bottom of this, and to no avail. i even asked for the resignation of our secretary of state in an unprecedented move to make a point. they just weren't listening to us, and they weren't investigating, and you saw what happened in the runoff. almost 80,000 people had -- 800,000 people had lost confidence and did not come back out and vote, and we turned two senate seats to liberal people in the united states senate. what i've found is basically facts. this is not conspiracy theory,
maria. there's a court case right now that a bunch of voters actually brought fort against fulton county to get at the truth. and in that court case a judge in a civil case ruled that the evidence was compelling and that he was going to unseal the absentee ballots in fulton county. now, he later dismissed the case because he said, if you can believe this, voters do not have legal standing in this issue. i've taken that case up, maria, and i have gone toward, and -- forward, and we want to see if a candidate has legal standing, and we want those absentee ballots in fulton county unsealed so we can finally have a true outside, independent forensic audit. what we're finding is that there was significant, significant illegal activity in georgia. you're seeing some of it bubble up now with regard to harvesting and so forth, but it really affects these races. maria: yeah. well, if you get the nomination, you will be run running against. stacey: city abrams.

have to run in a general election, and we're going to tell people what president trump told the people of virginia. look, we fixed some things, we know what they did, where they did it, when they did it and how they did it, and we're going to make sure that doesn't happen again this time. if they get out and vote, they can overwhelm the system, and that's what happened in virginia. we have a new republican governor there, and we can do the same thing in georgia. stacey abrams is a fraud. what she has done has materialized a lie over the last three years of voter suppression in georgia. she didn't even go to the meeting with joe bide when he came down to talk about our basest -- racist voter suppression laws, she wouldn't even stand on the podium with him, and now we see him considering her sister for the supreme court. this is as corrupt as it gets, maria. maria: so are you saying that you will insure that the election in georgia will have integrity? we can be sure that it will be fixed? what are you doing to insure you don't have the hanky-panky you
