who was doing the hacking. why was it not brought up before the election? can you imagine if the election results were the opposite. we tried to play the russian card? it would be a conspiracy theory. mike emmanuel has more. >> reporter: jon, good afternoon, it sounds like president-elect trump believes democrats are rushing the hacking issue because they don't think hillary clinton could lose the election. >> once they hack. they have no idea if it is russia or china or somebody sitting on a bench someplace. >> reporter: yet there is a push on capitol hill all issuing a statement saying democrat and republicans must work together and across the
lines of the congress to examine the recent incidents and offer solutions to deter from further cyber attacks. >> the question is what was the intention? and that's why we need an investigation. but more importantly than that, we need to seriously address the issue of cyber and the potential damage it does to the national security and the obama administration has done nothing. >> reporter: mitch mcconnell favors the intelligence committee doing a review. and mccain plans to do a cyber security threat review in the the armed services committee. the issue must not turn into a political football. >> a bipartisan investigation
that looks at the broad scope of this is what is needed. the cia saying one thing and the fbi something else. we need to get to the bottom of this in it a fair and nonpartisan and nonfinger pointing way. >> reporter: the concern for the transition team this is an effort to delegitimize the victory in the 2016 election and so they have their own concerns, jon? in the meantime the federal judge rejected the green party recount captain in pennsylvania saying there was no evidence that a hack occurred. the wisconsin recount is concluding today. the federal judge in michigan stopped the recount last week. the trump administration is taking shape.
cyber security swat teams spoke about the threats on the now administration. cyber security is a huge concern and in the wake of the alleged hackings by the russians. they on the front lines of the threats. we have more from catherine. >> reporter: the nsa tackled some of the cyber attacks. where more than 18 million records were stolen to the destruction of sonny network by north korea and now russia. the recommendation for the new administration bundle fbi homeland security and defense department capabilities. >> by the time we respond to cyber incidents, it has affected and you need to collapse those in one organization and where we are more responsive for the nation.
>> reporter: the nsa spoke about the mission that secures government systems and assists the private sector. the hackers are seeking out new targets including the russians. >> they will do it for certain on a mission objective and may get to certain intelligence that they can't get to any other way and they may use it to counter inherative that is an anti- russian thing and that nature. >> hackers took advantage of sloppy security or employee error and not hardware or software have you beenerability. they didn't have a magical tool, but relied on basic security issues, jenna. >> thank you. fox news learns rex
tillerson, the ceo of exxon mobile will be nominated as secretary of state. this comes as mr. trump's camp announced john kelly to head homeland security. politico is a piece trump winning converts with cabinet picks. many of the cabinet points selected he united the party far more than he did as a candidate. even at the risk of back lash of supporters for failing to drain the swamp in washington. >> joining me is john and michael. michael, to you first. is this a main treme conservative cabinet? >> yeah, you have a hard time finding the appointmentes that
wouldn't have been made by another republican president. those are the exceptions and those will be the sticking point. if the reporting that rex tillerson is the selection for secretary of state is, you have three septemberors, john mccain and lindsay graham and marco rubio who has concerns. i imagine there will be more. those exceptions i think are are going to be problematic for donald trump but gained a lot of good will on national security issues by getting jim mattis for dance and the cia director and john kelly for homeland security. exceptions will stick out like a sore thumb. graham and rubio and kaine. those are all three republicans. is this not a senate that is
going to be rubber stamping donald trump's pick? >> three leading republicans raising questions about perhaps the most high profile person in the cabinet secretary of state, is a sign they will do due diligence and raise questions in particular about russia. they are in a divide in many ways between the mainstream republicans such as john mccain and president-elect trump about p how close of a relationship the united states should have with russia and the secretary of state pick is a manifestation of that with rex tillerson. >> someone like scott pruitt to be head of the environmental protection agency, michael, that is a pick that delighted republican and democrats are going crazy. >> one thing to do to unite republicans, make the democrats go crazy. but again scott pruitt is not
far out of the republican mainstream despite what the democrats say. and the editorial times say about it. betsy devosas well. and so it is it a predictable republican cabinet. but that important position of secretary of state, rex tillerson, that will be a sticking point with some republican and there is a possibility that republicans will reject a nominee and you need a simple majority to do that. and i think donald trump will have to think carefully about the high profile appointmentes if not to it face a no vote. >> democrats have to think carefully about whom they will oppose and they can't say no to every person that donald trump wants to put in the cabinet.
>> i am sure they are choosing their battles which ones are worth it and not. nancy pelosi said they will work with president-elect trump where they can and oppose when they need to. and that will apply with cabinet picks. choice of epa, you might see opposition because he would come in and many ways unravel everything that the obama administration did on climate change and epa now. that may be one that they choose to fight. and we have to see what the other ones may be. thanks. >> my pleasure. >> president-elect trump going after the expensive weapon's program. what is he tweeting on. we are are live with that story and mr. trump and controversial phone call with the taiwanese
leader. and what he told chris wallace and how the china is reacting. jack knocked over a candlestick, onto the shag carpeting... ...and his pants ignited into flames, causing him to stop, drop and roll. luckily jack recently had geico help him with renters insurance. because all his belongings went up in flames. jack got full replacement and now has new pants he ordered from banana republic. visit geico.com and see how affordable renters insurance can be.

>> a fox news alert. president-elect donald trump announced there may be rethinking one china policy on twitter. josh earnest is speak about it in the white house press believing. >> donald trump and his campaign don't necessarily agree with that? we have heard donald trump on twitter this morning that it is impossible to tell who was responsible for hacking without catch canning them in the act and john bolton has been in line for a john with the state captain. and it could be a hack being and
perhaps the obama administration was responsible for that. obviously they raise questions and i wonder about your response? >> again, i have tried to avoid to the charges with from the president-elect's twitter feed. i have tried to present objective facts and the objective fact is that the intelligence community a month before the election came forward and presented a high confidence assessment that china was engaged in malicious. >> you said china. >> i am sorry, russia. put them back and forth between topics is tricky. but thank you for clarifying. but listen, the intelligence community's assessment was
unanimous and direct about. >> a bit more on donald trump and his thoughts of china and taiwan ahead. it doesn't seem to be a lot of love lost between josh earnest and donald trump in regards to the tweeting that comes out of trump tower. more on this ahead. >> china is reacting to president-elect trump's suggestion that he is reconsidering the u.s. treatment of taiwan. hery's more from chris wallace. >> you recently took a call from the president of taiwan and on the sunday shows, aides said it was a congratulatory call. next day. you have been think about it for weeks to send a message. >> it is not right.
it was a call coming an hour or two before. i understand the one china policy. i don't know why we have to be bound by a one china policy. >> mr. trump raised the possibility that u.s./china relations would be badly affected. in trump tower, transition meetings are on going and arriving to trump tower is joe manchin. he's from the state of west virginia. being a big state for the coal industry and senator manchin is up for potentially the job of energy secretary. he told reporters that he's anxious to have a great consideration for sure and we'll see what come canning out of

trump is promising tax cut cans and things happening in health care. but there is a lot to it look forward to. oil prices are going up. we saw that with opec's announcement. and uncertainty. and insurance rates are going up. and i tell people before you jump in the market, there will be be a lot of issues to look at. and potential trade with china and talk about the things you just mentioned. one of them is debt. you see the debt clock going up by the moment. and we are at 20 trillion in debt and this is the a chilles' heel of our economy and a lot of folks have debt including china. do you think we have new energy to it address that issue and make the number go down or slow
it down. >> trump's tax plan which is awesome for businesses including my own company which wants to reduce taxes. pundits think it will contribute another 10 or 20 trillion. and how about 30 trillion in national debt. >> there are those who believe be we could could and the folks lending us money. you are never going to pay us back. you will not do it anymore. >> and others say it is like buying the house. if you service your mortgage and debt. it doesn't make a difference. and close the taxes and economy and that is a didded thing. i am not sure anybody knows the answer is 20 trillion or 40 trillion too much much.
my advice is to do it with somebody be who does it for the living. >> interest rates are going up and what is the impact on the american. >> 0. it is 25 base points and i know business raising money or financing. geez, i am not going to it go with this financing and it could go another full point. and it will not make a difference. >> and so we have a ways to go to. however, they do build up over time. can you and i may be talking about it in december when things are yeahing down on us. >> we'll keep you jon? >> the president-elect talking about the climate change.

protection agency. they will have reverse the endangerment finding. that will not happen overnight. that is going to pit committed people against committed people. and get your popcorn. >> get your popcorn, why do you saw -- say that? >> it will get ugly because of people's temperature and global warming will be be quite real. >> and that fits in the exact round. michael, what do you think of that assessment? >> what will face mr. trump. should we build on the economy with solar and wind. and what is happening in tennessee and texas and the countries or will he follow the lead of the people he put in
charge and back away from what the countries of the world are doing which is clen energy. or allow the fossil industry pollute our aria and water. he is about to let oil and gas and coal industry to have their way. >> give us one specific that raises a lot of concern for you personally. >> sure, first president-elect trump appointed for every agency that deals with energy and climate. he appointed someone who doesn't believe that specific trade is will. one example is scott pruitt. he worked to undermine the agency he would lead.
and opposed that and limit sot and murkee pollution and every case the court will rule against him had. now he would be leading the epa. his appointed needs to it be be rejected. >> patrick, the comnalgdzination of is up a fight. >> the administration is serious with the appointment with pruitt. he is a accomplished lawyer on this matter. all the president is doing is what president obama did in about the environment in the are reverse. everything president obama promises he would do he would.
and what mr. trump did he would do. >> not really. the sierra club has been around years. we have had republican and democratic presidentsme do. it is okay to have different approaches and different governing policies but putting scott pruitt in charge of the environmental protection agency that did a great job of cleaning up our air and water and protecting the health of the americans. and putting scott pruitt in charge of that agency, is like putting an arsonist in. >> you have a scientist background. what about p the denying science
on climate change? >> i think the administration is graveitating to the lukewarm point of vow. -- view. if that is the case you can justify policy changes and i think that is where they are headed. >> i am curious. there is really strong voices on parts of the spectrum when it comes to climate change. if we operate on the assumption we want to protect where we live, could a boisterous debate on the epa be good for the country and so we can all do better. >> a debate about the epa would be fantastic. it out weigh the costs 30- 1.
here is my messages. don't be chump cans and don't believe what the administration is saying if it is doing the opposite. if the incoming administration appointed people who side is with polluters. they will undermind the protections for clean air and water. and even under mine the prekdz that keep our national parks, a try to testimony you they issue doing different. what is happen suggest source and we can't support it. >> i know our viewers are not chumps. and they will be just fine. michael and patrick, thank you both. >> an injury in a cross country
