03:40

sir long and

03:43

wicked he went on forever uh I can't

03:46

think of a worse person to give a long

03:48

speech than Joe Biden Wicked in that I

03:52

heard a socialist Utopia emerging in his

03:56

words he's giving away money to student

03:59

loans he's giving a way money for for

04:01

for welfare programs he's giving a way

04:04

money for the climate all I heard was

04:07

give away giveaway giveaway and tax more

04:11

you that that is antithetical to who we

04:14

are as Americans what Americans want is

04:16

the ability to control their own future

04:18

that requires having their money back

04:21

that's why we were better off under

04:23

President Trump in

04:25

2017 he led the greatest tax cuts in the

04:28

history of our nation over

04:31

$2.3 trillion dollar going back to to

04:35

Americans and in their pockets so we had

04:38

the lowest unemployment we had low

04:40

inflation but we had high enthusiasm

04:42

High optimism success Maria breeds more

04:46

success and that's why African-Americans

04:49

Hispanics and Women Voters are coming

04:51

back to the GOP because we have a leader

04:55

we have a leader at the top of the

04:57

mountain that says we can all do better

05:01

do you believe the black community will

05:03

come out for Trump this

05:06

November I I have never seen the type of

05:09

enthusiasm for Republican presidential

05:12

candidate than I'm seeing right now for

05:15

president Donald Trump 40% of

05:17

African-American men are willing to vote

05:20

for president Trump why because they had

05:22

more money in their pockets we had more

05:24

Law and Order in the streets and we had

05:26

a greater future for our kids listen

05:29

president Trump is a president that says

05:31

every child in every zip code deserves a

05:34

quality education president Trump is a

05:36

president who says every neighborhood

05:39

deserves more police not defund of

05:42

police but let's refund respect and have

05:45

our officers where they're needed the

05:47

most we as a people the American people

05:51

love that but African-Americans are

05:53

devastated by migrant crime we're seeing

05:56

African-American kids staying home at

05:58

school from school in New York city so

06:00

they can put illegal immigrants in the

06:02

schools we're watching Colorado and

06:05

Denver specifically zero out paychecks

06:08

so illegal immigrants can have more

06:10

money that's devastating poor

06:13

communities president Trump stands with

06:15

a backbone and says not on my watch

06:19

Senator I was struck by AG Merck

06:21

Garland's comments recently he gave a

06:23

speech and he said that he is going to

06:25

vow vow to stop voter ID laws he said

06:29

it's discriminatory AP partly against

06:31

the black community I what's wrong with

06:35

having an ID to vote and why is this

06:37

attorney general so bent on enforcing no

06:41

ID when you go to the voting

06:43

booth well listen he he he he

06:45

disrespects the black community with his

06:47

race baiting here's what he's suggesting

06:50

that we are too dumb stupid or poor to

06:54

be able to get a photo ID to vote let me

06:57

ask you a question Maria have you ever

06:59

ever had to show a voter ID or or an ID

07:02

to get on a plane or to cash a check or

07:04

to check out of your grocery store of

07:06

course you can of course you have and of

07:09

course you should we want Joe Biden

07:12

fired so Merck Garland goes out with

07:15

them the next day we should all want

07:17

voter ID why because it makes sure that

07:21

we protect the American process of

07:24

voting here's what we know from the 2022

07:27

election in Georgia they changed the law

07:30

voter I still voter ID is still the law

07:32

of the land and they had the highest

07:34

turnout and Republicans still won all

07:37

across the state we know you can have

07:39

voter ID voter Integrity Senator it's

07:42

great Point uh obviously he's making

07:45

room for the illegals coming into this

07:47

country it's great to have this

07:49

conversation with you sir we will

07:50

continue to follow it thank you for

07:51

being

07:52

here look forward to seeing you again

07:54

Maria thank you all right Senator Tim

07:56

Scott and now this it was a pretty

07:59

pretty surprising that the special

08:00

counsel would State the obvious in

08:02

writing uh that Joe Biden's mental

08:05

capacity is diminished I think we see

08:07

that play out on a daily basis what I'm

08:09

concerned about uh is the fact that with

08:12

hidden within that document uh is

08:14

evidence that uh some of the classified

08:17

documents he mishandled were from

08:19

Ukraine and

08:21

China and that was house oversight

08:24

committee chairman Congressman James

08:25

comr with me here last month on special

08:27

councel Robert her's report

08:29

investigating President Biden's handling

08:31

of classified documents during his

08:32

tenure as vice president her declining

08:35

to bring criminal charges against Biden

08:37

in part due to what he said the jury

08:39

would see as quote a sympathetic

08:41

well-meaning elderly man with a poor

08:43

memory her is scheduled to testify this

08:46

week in front of the house Judiciary

08:47

Committee that's coming up this Tuesday

08:48

as House Republicans overseeing the

08:50

Biden impeachment inquiry had their

08:52

subpoena denied by the White House that

08:54

the doj hand over transcripts and audio

08:57

related to her's interview with

08:59

President Biden meanwhile special

09:00

counsel Jack Smith continues to

09:02

aggressively pursue criminal charges

09:03

against former president Trump's

09:05

handling of classified documents he

09:07

filed a number of arguments against

09:08

Trump's bid to dismiss the case joining

09:10

me right now in this Sunday morning

09:11

Futures exclusive is house oversight

09:13

Committee Member Florida Congressman

09:15

Byron Donalds Congressman it's great to

09:16

see you this morning thanks so much for

09:17

being

09:19

here good to be back with you Maria your

09:21

reaction to this approach different

09:23

approach toward the uh classified

09:25

documents

09:27

case look I think I Ed to be uh

09:30

completely discussing by the Department

09:31

of Justice house oversight and house and

09:34

house Judiciary are doing our jobs we

09:36

are requesting the information from the

09:38

from the special Counsel on his

09:40

investigation into into Joe Biden and

09:43

let's be clear this is not about Joe

09:45

Biden's activities during his presidency

09:47

it is the fact that he did take

09:49

classified information from a secure

09:51

facility when he was vice president and

09:53

when he was the United States Senator

09:55

both are a violation of the Espionage

09:57

Act and having a poor memory does not

10:00

absolve you from violating the Espionage

10:03

Act being old and elderly does not

10:05

absolve you from violating the Espionage

10:08

Act and so once again you see the

10:10

two-tier system of justice against

10:13

Donald Trump simply because he is the

10:16

Republican nominee and he is actually

10:18

the person that would blunt the radical

10:19

Democrat agenda so what do the Democrats

10:22

do weaponize the Department of Justice

10:24

go after their political RI rival it is

10:27

fascism here in the United States

10:29

brought To Us by Joe Biden and the

10:31

Democrats so what where does the

10:33

impeachment inquiry against President

10:34

Biden stand at this point you're a

10:36

member of the oversight committee and

10:38

you and James comr have talked about $30

10:41

million that you have identified going

10:43

to Biden 170 suspicious activity reports

10:46

the gift of a Porsche and two diamonds I

10:49

want to get your take on specifically

10:51

what evidence you have the most

10:54

egregious evidence that you may have

10:56

that points to Joe Biden being involved

10:58

in the influence pedaling that you and

11:00

your committee have laid

11:02

out well we have it with the fact that

11:05

we now know that Hunter Biden did bring

11:07

Joe Biden to this this this uh dinner at

11:09

Cafe Milano it has been uh talked about

11:12

in various deposition transcripts from

11:14

Tony balinsky to Devon Archer when we

11:16

asked Hunter Biden he couldn't recall

11:19

you have the text message famously about

11:21

requesting money from chairman Z the

11:23

money showed up a week later Hunter

11:25

Biden under oath said he was hi can't

11:28

remember the text message but photos

11:30

from the laptop from Hell demonstrate

11:32

that he actually was at Joe Biden's

11:34

house on the day that the text message

11:36

was sent so you have Hunter Biden

11:38

contradicting himself that's evidence

11:39

piece number one evidence piece number

11:41

two is the fact that you have money that

11:43

flows to Jim Biden on the same day

11:46

checks are cut to Joe Biden and then

11:48

they're calling it a loan but there are

11:50

no loan documents that exist that's

11:53

number two and then number three and

11:54

most importantly I think if you're

11:55

talking impeachment Joe Biden has

11:57

willfully violated immigration law in

11:59

the United States he has also violated

12:02

Supreme Court ruling when it comes to

12:03

student loans and he does it with

12:05

impunity so I believe it's partly the

12:07

oversight investigation but it's also

12:09

the willfulness of Joe Joe Biden to

12:11

ignore the Supreme Court and to not

12:13

Faithfully take care to execute the laws

12:15

of the United States when it comes to

12:16

border security in fact during the State

12:18

of the Union Address he tried to school

12:21

the Supreme Court attacking them for

12:23

their decision on Ro v Wade uh your

12:27

reaction and also give us your

12:28

assessment of Biden State of the Union

12:30

this

12:31

week well I found I found his scolding

12:33

of the Court disgusting because the left

12:36

will say that they want to respect the

12:37

institution except when they don't get

12:39

their way and then when they don't get

12:40

their way they want to call out Supreme

12:42

Court justices in front of the world

12:44

that was outrageous there was a reason

12:46

why not the entire the entire Supreme

12:48

Court was not there because I think they

12:49

understood they didn't want to be

12:51

subjected to Joe Biden's foolishness on

12:53

a whole the State of the Union speech

12:55

was disgusting I've never seen a speech

12:58

like this where the opposition party

13:00

from the president's party did not stand

13:02

for an hour in that speech it was

13:05

partisan it was a campaign speech he was

13:07

trying to prove himself to his political

13:09

base because they have serious questions

13:11

about his ability and frankly they

13:13

should have serious questions about his

13:14

ability but it was not about the United

13:17

States of America it was not addressing

13:19

the true State of the Union which is

13:21

unraveling a bunch of the policies of

13:23

policies of Joe Biden because they've

13:25

been disastrous for America well this is

13:27

what I really want to get to I mean the

13:28

state of the union is an opportunity for

13:30

America to understand where the country

13:32

stands on so many issues whether it's

13:34

economic or or or foreign policy or

13:37

Beyond I walked away from that State of

13:39

the Union not really having a clear

13:41

understanding of what is the state of

13:43

the union so I ask you what is the state

13:45

of the union

13:47

today right now under Joe Biden we are a

13:50

nation in Decline and it's truly sad

13:52

because America has so much promise you

13:54

can make the clear argument Maria that

13:57

the only reason why our economy is still

13:59

a flat is really because of the

14:00

Ingenuity the hard work the ethic the

14:03

grit of the American worker the American

14:06

businessman the American Finance Year

14:08

all of them working interdependently to

14:11

Just Produce goods and services and

14:12

enjoy America it's the greatest nation

14:14

in the world but with this leadership

14:16

from Joe Biden where we have fallen

14:18

behind on the world stage we are falling

14:20

behind when it comes to energy we are

14:22

falling behind when it comes to to

14:24

regulations and the government gets

14:26

bigger as a result um it's not been good

14:28

for the United States we can

14:29

significantly do better this is why I

14:31

believe Donald Trump's going to be the

14:32

47th president of the United States well

14:35

on on during the State of the Union

14:37

Biden said and this is a quote I've

14:38

already cut the deficit by over $1

14:41

trillion that's just not true according

14:43

to the committee for a responsible

14:45

federal budget Maya mcginness writes

14:47

this more than the entirety of the fall

14:49

in the de deficit can be explained by Co

14:51

relief and acted under both Trump and

14:54

Biden expiring so the covid money has

14:57

expired and that is why the deficit went

14:59

down uh covid related spending fell by

15:01

nearly 1 and a half trillion between

15:03

fiscal year 21 and 22 according to the

15:06

uh uh committee for a responsible

15:08

federal budget we're still waiting to

15:10

see if you all are going to get your

15:11

work done the Appropriations bills and

15:13

and avoid a government shutdown within

15:15

the next two weeks

15:16

right oh that is correct two quick

15:19

things number one your report is

15:20

absolutely correct and then Joe Biden

15:22

did the dumbest thing ever he Juiced

15:24

federal spending with his American

15:26

so-called rescue rescue plan which

15:28

created the disastrous inflation that

15:31

has been crippling American consumers
