6:27 pm
quiet. that's the question everyone is asking. why is president trump so quiet? one idea is that he's quiet because he thinks this whole thing is over blown, come on, let's go on and talk about big things. the other idea a lot of people subscribe to is the guy is being quiet because he doesn't want to give any credence whatsoever to the possibility he may not have won the election. the fact is he did win the election, no matter what the democrats think, he did. this gets down to one fundamental flaw and that is this idea of a democratic institution, the franchise, the votes being challenged. that's where bob mullmueller co in. he's going to track every source, every sight, every person and no matter who is in the way, they will be called to accountability. >> one by one. speaking of the president, he's in iowa tonight rallying like a campaign rally with a lot of supporters, thank you, larry. up next, we're learning more problems from this deadly heat
