You say 12 more years, Thie president appeared surprisingly there on the stage in Charlotte, as did the vice president for a separate speech. They Really distanced, of course, on its a real contrast to Vice President Joe Biden spending his entire time cloistered away in what appeared to be somebody's studio in a closet in a basement somewhere, But But, you know, listen, they're two parties and they approach things differently. But this I definitely have the live excitement and dynamism and crowd response about for 100 delegates there and another several 100 people from the media, and it was pretty cool. And tonight, there's going to be quite a lineup is well, we're going to continue our coverage, including your response and reaction to it. We're gonna let you have a chance to nominate the president yourself if you were on the floor, a triple 86 30 W. M A L right now joined by represented Jody Hice of Georgia who sits on the oversight committee in the House, which is overseeing these postal service hearings. But first I want You hear something he was on with Jim Sciutto, a CNN former Obama administration employees who would have been working in the Clinton ministrations. But instead he works for CNN because Hillary Clinton lost in such humiliating fashion. Listen to this isn't it has claimed that with an increase in mail in voting, this will be the most rigged A lynch election in history. Georgia Great State of Georgia, where you're from, is one of 34 states that offers mail in voting without an excuse. It's done. So since 2005 You believe that policy needs to be reversed in Georgia Congressman Highs. Jim Sciutto is not stupid. All of these reporters all of these journalists, they are not stupid, but they are all pretending like absentee balloting is exactly the same as the Universal Mail in balloting. Can you please explain this to me or because the only way I can explain it is there purposely trying to terrify and And and lie to the American people. That's exactly what they're doing, Larry. It's all on outright lied to the American people. It's fearmongering trying Tio put the false narrative in the minds of the American people. That the president and we as Republicans don't want any kind of absentee ballots. Listen, they are two totally totally different things on absentee ballots. There's one someone cannot make it to the voting booth because they're going to be out of town or their stake. They had surgery or, for whatever reason, it really doesn't matter. They're afraid of covert or whatever they can request an absentee about it. And the ballot is instant to that individual request of it. That is one thing I don't know anyone who is opposed to absentee voting. The problem becomes with what the Democrats are proposing, and that is universal mail in ballots where the government sends out ballots to every voter in the country. Tens and tens of millions of ballots going out randomly. And then they want the row Voter ID to be associated with any of those ballots, and then they want national ballot harvesting. So you're gonna have the battle is going out tens and tens of millions of people immediately. They're going to be deceased. We're going to be people who have lived. They're just going to battle It's going out there. There is no voter ID. Just absolutely a recipe for fraud. And, frankly, that's what the Democrats won't, but that is a far cry from an absentee ballot request. Which they are trying to par as one In the same there took two totally different animals altogether. Congressman heist Mr Sudo went on to say, and you'll hear Democrats say the same thing to Oh, there's not going to the front because every one of these mail in ballots the signature is compared to whatever signature is on file in the registers of I just ask you something, Congressman there are there were about 130 Million ballots cast in 2016. I expect there will be more ballots cast this nun who exactly is doing all of that signature checking. And how long is that going to take? Oh, no, You can't do it. I mean, it's just that this is absolutely an impossibility. But this is what the Democrats want. They want confusion. Look at what just happened in New York and I chairwoman Maloney just had her her election a took over six weeks. Get the results back in just one congressional district because they had all these mail in ballots and then over 1000 of them were thrown out because of one problem or another. It's just a wide open door for long suits, even in that one district, but the Democrats want to open this up nationally. There is no way to verify Bye signatures or any other means, And yet the Democrats don't even want that, In fact, the law that they passed in the house. It's unfortunately did not pass us in. It's not even taken up in the Senate. The Heroes Act that they keep bragging about bands states from having any I D requirements with these mail in ballots so that he won't want it running ballots going out by the tens of millions. Zero accountability. Zero checking zero I'd be requirements and then they want to harvest them themselves or through a postal service. Right now. The union has endorsed Joe Biden Pleasant, so I mean this whole thing there's reach with fraud. And that is what we're pushing back on. But and that's what the president's pushing back off again. We don't want integrity at the voting booth that the Democrats are trying to destroy that. Congressman hides the questioning of the United States Post Master general concluded today You were able to witnesses tell me the tenor of these conversations and how the postmaster equipped himself. Well, it was political theater as we knew it would be, and and but what? We knew going into this that we have a vote on this whole issue on Saturday, and here it is on Monday. We're having a hearing. I don't recall Millicent. There's plenty of times in Congress that we spoke on bills that have not bothered to have a hearing. I get that, but I don't recall ever wouldn't we have had a piece of legislation to fix a problem? Waiter. We had a hearing about the problem. And after we had the vote, Yeah, I mean, when there was a specific things, and so we're thinking this is like it's like putting a roof under our house and calling an inspector and decided I need the roof. That's what the Democrats have done here with this whole thing and so coming in today, we knew it was going to be political theater because they didn't want the facts. They didn't want the truth. They already have the vote. And so what? Their attempt today Wass what is to destroy the Postmaster General Todo Ah, Some of them are already calling for his resignation and only been on the job two marks. But it was an attempt to really go after the president by going after the postmaster general. Finally, Congressman, if you could just give us a look see, are are you Are you able to attend any of the convention at all? Ah, Are you worried we'll be there on first day, in fact for the acceptance speech of the president. Where we continue to be told that Georgia is a toss up. Georgia is leading Democrat Georges. Some of the polls show Biden a head injury. Could you please give us your first hand account of what's going on there in the Peach Tree State? Yeah, I think the president's going to be fine here in Georgia. Obviously, we can't take it for granted here or can we take it for granted anywhere else in the country? We are at A crossroads. We're in the midst of a fight of our life or our country. We're either going to have a country that believes in limited government and maximum freedom or we're going to go down. The path of Ah, Socialist, potentially marks is Democratic Party. They want government to dictate every part of our lives. I can't stress the importance of this election. But I believe the American people are wise ing up today. I don't believe certainly here in Georgia. That is reality. No question. It is in the 10th district where I served But it seems to be the tenor across the state as a whole, I believe is going to be in good shape, but we're gonna have to fight all the way. All right. We'll leave it there, Congressman. Thank you for joining us and a good job going toe to toe there with Jim Sciutto. You You pushed back very well on him, and that's what it takes. And I'm glad you're in the arena. Thank you very much. It is for 45. W e mail, traffic.
