5:18 pm
legtimacy of our next presidency. >> i don't know because we haven't had the investigation and i am saying we need to have an independent investigation by a bipartisan commission to determine how and what the level of foreign power and russian influence was in this election. once we know that, we will know. i was one of those that protested the certification of the electoral college and it was based on what the intelligence community provided which john lewis has laid out in terms of a foreign power interfering in this election. i am not prepared to say yes or no. i don't know but what i am prepared to say is that the american people deserve to know if, in fact, this presidency now will be influenced by the russian government. not a matter of who won and loss. >> i know you can't say if it is legitimate or not. my issue with john lewis and i
5:19 pm
am not taking anything away from him. i respect that man for what he has done but when he comes out and says that president is not a legitimacy president before the investigation has been completed i do have an issue with that. do you have an issue with that? >> john lewis is to applauded because he is a morale leader. he would note have said that if he didn't believe it. we have to look at where we are going. >> did you think that could undermine our president? >> i don't think so because we know that we need to have a full disclosure of what took place and i don't think that undermines. i think congressman lewis is right on point in terms of the foreign powers and the russian government influencing the election. i do say the american people deserve to know what the issues are and the facts. we need a full investigation. in the meantime the investigation, because that could go on for some time you
