One of those is West Virginia Agent Joe Manchin, he joins us tonight.
Senator, acknowledgment for actuality here.

50-50 agency there’s a tie. But if one agent does not vote on a Democratic side, there is no tie and there is no bill. So, I accomplish to you tonight, and I accomplish to all of your admirers and anybody abroad that’s watching, I appetite to lay those fears, I appetite to blow those fears for you appropriate now, because aback they allocution about whether it be packing the courts or catastrophe the filibuster, I will not vote to do that.

And then, all the added things you’re audition about, Bret, additionally is, defund the police. I don’t apperceive if any of the Democrats in the conclave that are for defunding the police. We’re not for that whatsoever.
And aback they allocution about basically Medicare for all, we can’t alike pay for Medicare for some. Doesn’t accomplish any faculty at all.

BAIER: Let me aloof analyze here, Senator, you’re saying, definitively tonight, that alike if Democrats booty control, and Chuck Schumer becomes the Senate majority leader, that they try to breach the filibuster, say the delay is over, you will definitively vote adjoin that.

Why would you breach that down, and there’s no charge to acquire the Senate?
BAIER: All right. So, there’s some Republicans who will say to you I don’t buy it. There’s action to be too abundant burden on you. Chuck Schumer is action to appear adamantine and he’s action to say, I’ll accord you a chairmanship of XYZ, and they’re action to appear adamantine to get that vote.
You voted some key votes adjoin Amy Coney Barrett’s confirmation. You said you didn’t like the process, if I bethink right. You said she was qualified, but you voted adjoin her. You voted adjoin the $500 billion COVID abatement bill. You said it wasn’t big enough. But if you were a Republican, you would acquire voted for it.
You voted for the Amends Act, Tim Scott bill, and for the USMCA.
MANCHIN: And I voted — I voted —
BAIER: But if you’re a Republican and you attending at you —
MANCHIN: No, I mean, Bret, I voted for Neil Gorsuch, I voted for Brett Kavanaugh. I was adjoin this action because never in the history of the United States of America acquire we anytime accepted a Supreme Cloister amends aback a abstraction happened amid July and November, and I’ve been actual bright about that.
I voted for Amy Comey Barrett for the 17th Circuit. I’m not action to breach precedent. So, if I can booty that blazon of pressure, if I can vote for Brett Kavanaugh, the abandoned Democrat, if I can booty that blazon of pressure, you don’t anticipate that I can basically absolve what I’m action to be accomplishing and how I’m action to vote, alive that I’m sitting in the bench that Robert C. Byrd held, who wrote the rules of the Senate. This is an academy you’d acquire to be protected.
BAIER: And you wouldn’t become a Republican.
MANCHIN: You don’t charge added —
BAIER: And breach a Democrat.
MANCHIN: You don’t charge — whether you’re D — whether you’re D are not right. I’m a — I’m a appreciative abstinent bourgeois Democrat. Maybe there’s not abounding of us left, but I can acquaint you, this country wants a moderation.
This country — you run your action you run your business from the average not from the fringes, and that’s breadth I’ve consistently been.
So, for something, whatever the bulletin was, it was wrong, for this abounding bodies to be split. For us not to be able to acquire a bulletin that didn’t alarm the bejesus out of people.
And aback you’re talking about, basically, Green New Deal and all this socialism, that’s not who we are as a Democratic Party. It’s not how I was aloft in West Virginia. It’s not the Democrats I know.
But yet, we’ve been tagged, if you anytime be by your name, you charge be for all the crazy stuff, and I’m not.
BAIER: All right. I’m action to comedy a complete chaw here.

I said, Mr. President, please, for every one percent that you reduced, from 35 bottomward to 21, I says, 25 would be a abundant abode for us to stop, and would be actual competitive, and a superpower of the world.
For every one percent of that — of the taxing, it’s $100 billion, Bret.
MANCHIN: Corporate tax, one percent. And I said, sir, we can’t accord abroad that much, we still acquire an obligation.
Bret, as of this morning, we’re over $27 trillion. $27 abundance of debt.
Never afore acquire we accumulated this abundant debt in the abbreviate of a time added than Apple War II. So, we’ve got to get our banking abode in order, and cipher has talked about that. Nobody.

They acquainted like they were larboard behind. No one was active to him, and I anticipate we can accompany that aback together.
Basically, as we do an action policy, you acquire to acquire — be absolute — action absolute in this country. You can’t brighten assertive things.
We’re action to use deposit in this cleanest fashion, we’re action to be basically affective appear renewables. We can do all that, but you acquire to use aggregate you have. But you can’t leave an breadth behind.

We are still a affair that has compassion. We are still a affair that has accord and empathy.
MANCHIN: We acquire to assignment together, but you apperceive one thing? My Republican friends, these are all acceptable people, can’t we assignment together? We adeptness acquire a altered abstraction of how to fix the problem, but we can assignment calm to try to break them rather than basically blaming anniversary other, and that’s what’s happened to America.

And it’s abandoned Monday. Bret?
BAIER: Jonathan, acknowledge you. We’ll abide to dig in, and if we acquisition anything, we will accompany it to you. We’ll chase all the accustomed challenges as they go. Acknowledge you, Jonathan.
The media has had absolutely a anniversary with history unfolding, of course. Howie Kurtz with a attending at the advantage from all sides. We’ll acknowledgment with a review.
BAIER: It’s been a celebrated anniversary from Tuesday’s voting to Saturday’s calling of the presidential chase for Joe Biden. To the accustomed challenges that continue, let’s booty a attending at how the media handled it all. Actuality is FOX Account media analyst, host of FOX’s “MEDIA BUZZ,” Howard Kurtz.
HOWARD KURTZ, FOX NEWS MEDIA ANALYST: It took four continued canicule for the above networks to alarm the race.
BAIER: Former Vice Admiral Joe Biden will win.
KURTZ: But alike as Biden started acting like a president-elect, the bounden asked, aback aback does the lamestream media alarm who our abutting admiral will be?
DONALD TRUMP, (R) PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: If you calculation the actionable votes, they can try to abduct the acclamation from us.
KURTZ: Yet the admiral and his supporters had no botheration with the arrangement projections in 2016. Admiral Trump is authoritative allegations of boundless fraud, so far unproven, and blaming Biden’s, quote, media allies. Afterwards the arrangement calls, CNN and FOX had adept anchors handle the advantage with some accessory commentators.
DONNA BRAZILE, DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: I’m so beholden that this moment has come.
KURTZ: But MSNBC’s advanced and anti-Trump hosts conducted a daylong celebration.
RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC HOST: Joy, you attending fantastic.
MADDOW: Your afterglow I can see from here.
JOY REID, MSNBC HOST: I’ve backward up for 447 canicule cat-and-mouse for this acclamation to be over.
KURTZ: Some anchors fabricated bright they weren’t affronted by the outcome.
DANA BASH, CNN CHIEF POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT: This is about a accurate activity of the admiring for normalcy, and for a lot of bodies about their accouchement and absent bodies — absent their accouchement to feel adequate with accepting the admiral as a role model.
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN ANCHOR: We see him like an adipose turtle on his aback flailing in the hot sun.
KURTZ: Anderson Cooper afterwards apologized.
Others are assuming little courage for Republican objections.
JAKE TAPPER, CNN ANCHOR: Not you, but your party’s leaders are acting like babies. You absent the election.
KURTZ: As the columnist covers the president’s litigation, media conservatives are divided. Some, like Sean Hannity all-embracing the artifice allegations, while a “New York Post” beat urges Trump to stop the conspiracy-addled allocution of a baseborn election.
KURTZ: The networks acutely acquire no official adeptness to bless the abutting president, but their projections are based on math, not ideology. Twenty years afterwards the Bush-Gore blab fiasco, no account aperture wants to ache the accustomed abasement of calling it wrong. Bret?
BAIER: Howie, that’s right. Acknowledge you. Acutely it’s the states.
Up next, the official acceptance of the vote looms in all of those states on this weekend’s call. We’ll allocution about that with the console and what appears to be a Trump attack and a admiral digging in.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
JOE BIDEN, (D) PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: I approved this appointment to restore the body of America, to clean the courage of this nation. And to accomplish progress, we acquire to stop alleviative our opponents as our enemies. They are not our enemies. They are Americans.
MITCH MCCONNELL, (R-KY) SENATE MAJORITY LEADER: Let’s not acquire any lectures, no lectures about how the admiral should immediately, affably acquire basic acclamation after-effects from the aforementioned characters who aloof spent four years abnegation to acquire the authority of the aftermost election.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
BAIER: OK, that was the back-and-forth from Saturday and today from the Senate majority leader. Now a FOX Account alert. FOX Account can affirm that Advocate Accepted Bill Barr will acquaint the Administering of Amends to probe, quote”, abundant allegations of voting irregularities, admitting little affirmation of fraud.” That aftermost allotment is from the Associated Columnist but we can affirm that he is instructing the DOJ to move advanced with an investigation. This as lawsuits are continuing at assorted states, including the big one in Pennsylvania filed today.
Let’s accompany in our panel, FOX Account arch political analyst Brit Hume, Charles Hurt, assessment editor for “The Washington Times,” Mara Liasson, civic political contributor for Civic Accessible Radio, and Steve Hayes, editor of “The Dispatch.”
Brit, your thoughts on these new developments absolutely aural the accomplished few seconds?
BRIT HUME, FOX NEWS SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST: Well, I’d aloof say there assuredly are irregularities in the selection. There are irregularities in about every election. The catechism consistently is the aforementioned — were the irregularities abundant to exhausted the acclamation from the applicable champ to addition candidate? That is what the affairs that we acquire for this array of affair are advised to acknowledge and to acquisition out, and we will. The admiral has every appropriate to challenge these results, and we acquire institutions and courts and so on that are set up to adjudge such disputes, and so we’ll see.
I anticipate it’s a continued shot, but the abstraction — Mitch McConnell is right. These bodies who are accusatory the admiral care to shut up and go agilely are the aforementioned bodies that answer a Russia bunco abortion that went on for years, and abounding added things, abnegation to acquire the angary of the aftermost election. So that’s breadth we are, I think, Bret.
BAIER: Steve Hayes, we should point out in 2016 there were actual attenuated margins in a few states, we declared the acclamation for Donald Trump, and those accustomed challenges by the Clinton aggregation did abide afterwards that. The vote gets certified by anniversary of the states a brace of weeks, a few weeks later.
STEVE HAYES, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Yes, but the blow of the action unfolded. I anticipate Brit’s right. There is a action in abode here. The admiral has every appropriate to accompany this process.
What the admiral doesn’t acquire a appropriate to do, however, is amplify claims that are unjustified. And I anticipate that’s what he’s accomplishing here. He said that the acclamation is stolen. We acquire apparent aught affirmation that the acclamation has absolutely been stolen. And if you go aback and you analysis the claims that were advancing from the president, his sons, his top surrogates aftermost week, one afterwards addition afterwards addition of these claims was accurate false. Whether it was Michigan magically advancing up with an added 130,000 votes or Trump ballots actuality burned, all of these things burst in on themselves.
If there’s affirmation of wrongdoing, affirmation of fraud, by all agency let’s see it, let’s appeal it. What we can’t have, and what I ambition added Republican leaders would do, is allege out aback the admiral is authoritative claims that are not backed by evidence. It matters. This is an important moment. It matters.
BAIER: And we’ve said abundant times, we acquire not apparent evidence, bright affirmation of massive boundless fraud, and to Brit Hume’s point, abundant to change the votes in these states. That said, Charlie, we are digging into allegations, we are afterward these accustomed filings to see breadth they go.
CHARLES HURT, OPINION EDITOR, “WASHINGTON TIMES”: And I anticipate it’s a acceptable thing. We should do it, and Republicans should acquire done it continued afore now. This could be yet addition favor Admiral Trump does for the Republican Affair if it puts this affair advanced and center. As Brit said, there is artifice that takes abode in every election, and it consistently comes bottomward to, well, what does it abundant to about-face the outcome?
But I would absolutely accession the bar a little bit on that and accomplish the point that it’s not about aloof one actuality committing fraud. Every time an actionable acclamation is cast, added bodies are blank from their appropriate to casting a ballot. We should not acquire any altruism in our arrangement for acclamation fraud.
And you do acquire places in this country breadth it is added accustomed than in added places. And the actuality that for so continued Democrats acquire fought this fight, for decades now, to alleviate the regulations surrounding these elections. Aback you alleviate those regulations, whether it’s angry to booty abroad rules that crave aborigine I.D. or whether you’re aggravating to animate mail-in voting, all of these things animate added fraud. And that’s a absolute problem, and Republicans acquire done a abhorrent job of angry that fight.
BAIER: All right, that account aloof accident abnormal ago. The added account happened beforehand in the show, and accept to this, Mara. This is Agent Joe Manchin.
SEN. JOE MANCHIN, (D-WV): I accomplish to you tonight and I accomplish to all of your admirers and anybody abroad that’s watching, I appetite to abate those fears
— I’m action to blow those fears for you appropriate now, because aback they allocution about, whether it be packing the courts or catastrophe the filibuster, I will not vote to do that.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
BAIER: So alike in a 50/50 Senate breadth Chuck Schumer is the majority leader, Agent Manchin adage I will not vote to annihilate the filibuster.
MARA LIASSON, NATIONAL POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT, NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO: And Agent Manchin is apparently not the abandoned Democrat who would vote that way.
I anticipate there’s been this big allegory about how accessible it would be for Democrats to backpack the courts or annul the delay if abandoned they had a majority.
They would acquire to acquire a humongous majority to do that. So I anticipate that Agent Manchin is not alone, but I anticipate his bulletin is important. He’s aggravating to acquaint bodies don’t worry, alike a Democratic majority will not blunder to the left.
BAIER: All right, panel, acknowledge you. Ambition we had added time tonight. Acknowledgment for the time. We’ll be appropriate aback with a final anticipation afterwards this.
BAIER: A lot of account in that hour. Acknowledgment for agreeable us into your home tonight. That’s it for the SPECIAL REPORT. Fair, balanced, and unafraid.
