would fail the republicans cannot support the first debt to move forward on what essentially was a shell infrastructure bill, but schumer wanted to keep the pressure on them he told them they could fill in the details later but republicans say no deal, they need the details of how they come up with an extra 0 600 billion in new spending and the 1.2 trillion dollar hard infrastructure package. >> mitt romney saying they're trying to work out an agreement if there will be 80 - 20 split between spending and highway or 82 - 18 split and there's questioned if the map will add up and what the score of the be.l bill will after the first failed try by senator schumer to pressure republicans to move forward on a bill that is unwritten the group says are making progress. >> the plan is for a do over on monday, bipartisan negotiators say they think they can work out a deal over the weekend and be ready to move forward on monday.
elizabeth: thank you so much, good to see you. let's get a check of your money the dow, s&p and nasdaq all up rally and after the one day better-than-expected earnings from johnson & johnson. bullish sentiment on wall street. joining us now senator ron johnson, toys good to have you back on, the democrat strategy is backfiring even house democrats and the moderates do not like it. what do you say. >> it reminds me of nancy pelosi's famous statement we have to pass the bill before we can determine what's in it. in this case we have to vote for the bill before it's written, before anybody knows within it. it was obvious should not have been voted on, we should've had a culture on it and will see howhat negotiation, with over te weekend. i would still argue on monday foreboding on this, we will still not know all the details t and that shows dysfunction of the senate under democrat
leadership. elizabeth: the gameplaying in the railroading going on, last year nancy pelosi said we will delay covid relief until after president biden got elected. i think americans are seenhi rit through this, basically the democrats are saying republicans are trying to run out the clock, now democrats are trying to railroad massive spending bills on democrat votes without any bills written, how do they thint that was why? >> they have the backing of moss of the mainstream press and social media. elizabeth, we increase debt over the last 18 months by $5 trillion. the democrats are absolutely dedicated to passing the $3.5 trillion budget which understates the cost of the budget, what they're going to do late and entitlement bills, they're only going to score them of years and we know once and entitlement is in place like ronald reagan said
the closest thing to eternal life is a government program, they will never in they understate the long-term cost of the 3.5 trig another bill, the democrats are dedicated to spending money that we don't have and i have to warn every american you will end up paying eafor it increasing inflation to wipeout wages or increase taxes. elizabeth: senator braun is calling an inflation bomb, what is plan b for the other $3.5 trillion bill democrats still want that, will they try to go for that? what is going to happen how do you see this playing out? >> one reason i don't agree with a separate infrastructure bill, i've always thought we need to spend money on infrastructure vote the republican position should've been take the $700 billion of the $1.9 trillion supposedly covid
relief that is not spent until 2022 - 2028 and repurpose every $700 billion worth ofr infrastructure that doesn't mortgage earn children's feature any further. democrats will spend $3.5 trillion in the budget they will be able to get thatt pass. all we do bypassing the separate trillion dollar bill or new spending's going to be in their we leave a void that they will fill with new entitlement spending, makes no sense for republicans have their fingerprints on the massive spending bills that will b spark inflation. elizabeth: senator, democrats were not sent to washington with a mandate to change everything, to an evenly divided senate and democrats have the slimmest house majority since world war i and the president, 90000 votes went the other way, republicans would run things in d.c., now we got six months into the biden presidency and were seeing
nothing on infrastructure, nothing about reform which they wanted nothing on police reform, nothing on the border and immigration and he inherited a v-shaped recovery, jobs are coming back because of the shutdown being lifted, what is a success, more spending that is magically being rebranded as an inflation machinene by the president. >> if you're a democrat you judge success by ratcheting up government every time you have the opportunity to do so they did under obamacare and the new entitlement and they proved themselves that we were able to repeal that and replace it. they have the same mentality right now as much new entitlement programs, if you look at what they're proposing it's about every item on the democrat wish list forever, they are going to put those programs in place, score them in terms of cost of a couple of years but they're pretty certain want to provide a benefit to any group of americans and so most impossible to take thatbl beneft
away, this is your calculation and they realize they will only be a power for two years because so much of the program is unpopular their open border policy but they are willing to sacrifice the majority to ratchet up government one more time hopefully they can get in power and ranted up another time. elizabeth: ron johnson, it's good to see you, come back soonc senator rand paul saying he will make a criminal referral to the justice department alleging dr. fauci lied to congress over nih funding of dangerous enough function research, dr. fauci heatedly denying all of that, representative mark green is next to break it down, you are watching "the evening edit" on fox business. >> i will send a letter to the department of justice asking for a criminal referral, he has lied to congress we have scientistth alina by the dozens to say the
research he was funding was gain-of-function. he's doing this because he is a self interest to covertr a his tracks and his connection to wuhan labs, does he deserve all of the blame, no there is still some conjecture of whether or not it came from the lab buddies lying whether he funded dgain-of-function research and yes he should be punished. ♪ it's a wishlist on wheels. a choice that requires no explanation. it's where safe and daring seamlessly intersect. it's understated, yet over-delivers. it is truly the mercedes-benz of sports sedans. visit your local mercedes-benz dealer today for exceptional lease and financing offers.

elizabeth: senator rand paul announced he will ask the justice department to criminally investigate dr. fauci for allegedly lying to congress over the nih funding of super virus research, dr. fauci heatedlyuc denies this. supporters say don't pile on drt documents and dr. fauci's ownar words show his case is looking weaker by the day joining us tendency mark green. it's unreasonable and wrong to blame dr. fauci for the pandemic, were not talking about that, this is oversight and stopping another pandemic that killed 600,000 americans and 4 million worldwide, dr. fauci is oversight and explanation are not picture-perfect. >> i agree 100% and i agree with senator rand paul, it's very
concerning what he said to congress and his e-mails we forwarded the e-mails and we now know he was suspicious of gain-of-function research and very concerned about the nih and his organization funding gain of research to the organization called echo help we know money was given to echo health and we know that they gave over $600,000 to the wuhan lab in the wuhan lab was doing gain-of-function research. his statements to congress at ao minimum suspect. elizabeth: he never at any point address the facts that the money was given to the wuhan lab and for gain-of-function and the chief scientist said so in 2017 that they intruded in nih funding for the super virus research they said yeah they looked at that and said it was gain-of-function in the nih started funding this more than a
generation ago right before the sars virus broke out. the issue of oversight is huge he can't testify that he doesn't know how the wuhan money was used, the taxpayer money he's authorizing and signing off on it. >> 's integrity is somewhat in question because here they are asserting this is very clearly from a pangolin and no one found that pangolin yet and every other outbreak, the longest it ever took to find the vector was nine months, we are well over 18 months and we still have not sfound it. china sacrificed hundreds of thousands of animals to try to find the vector and they have not found it. this came from the lab they were suspicious from the very beginning and anthony fauci was deceptive about that from the very beginning. elizabeth: he downplayed the fact that three wuhan lab workers were hospitalized with
covid like symptoms in november 2019. china has a long history of lab accidents, the government says wuhan lab is working on bio weapons of the military, dr. fauci even though he denies the funding he talked about it three years ago when the nih gain-of-function research. watch this. >> let me go on about nih funding pool of gain-of-function research, let me explain this a little, whenever this comes out there's always pushing back and forth from the press, nih now will do dangerous research, no as a matter of fact it's the opposite, a framework has been established to guide funding decisions on proposed research that might be anticipated to create transfer or used enhance potential pandemic pathogens. elizabeth: scientist keep saying you don't need the research to
make vaccines but let me back up he's making up his own definition of gain-of-function and on testimony. he's being criticized for hiding behind a technical definition to deny the nih was funding this it didn't meet the gain-of-function definition. >> if he thought there was a concern about the definition why didn't he send the e-mail back at the very beginning of outbreak. he understands her gain-of-function is and he knows a purpose to replicate virus in the laboratory in a rapid manner so it can be u studied and he ao understands a danger of a leak from that. here we are finding ay laboratoy with known leaks doing gain-of-function research in a country that as a minimum a competitor and some would suspect an enemy, here we are giving them the capacity to do this, it's absurd. elizabeth: if everything is a
okay why is dr. fauci in the nah stonewalling republican senators and they asked the government to release classified information about this funding and he won't do it. thepandemic has caused biggest drop in life expectancy since world war ii it dropped a year end a half black americans are seeing a three year drop, this is how serious this is, it's about oversight. >> absolutely this is a human tragedy 600 plus thousand americans dead, millions dead worldwide, a. a our economy, people out of job, think of the suicides that happen because they lost theirru jobs and businesses in the drug overdose that happens, this is been a horrific experience all could've been avoided if the truth have been told by china from the very beginning and we should never have been involvedu with the wuhan lab. elizabeth: we cannot let it happen again. etit's good to see you. thank you for joining us, come
back soon. up next representative brian babin, we have five states talking about reinstating mask mandates or threatening to do so, look at this senate minority leader mitch mcconnell warns americans get vaccinated against covid-19 oriole risk another shutdown depending on where you live, keep it here on "the evening edit". >> the truth is the best way to protect yourself and family from this virus is to get vaccinated. ♪ re. one that's been paved and one that's forever wild. but freedom means you don't have to choose just one adventure. you get both. introducing the wildly civilized all-new 3-row jeep grand cherokee l

elizabeth: welcome back, six the member of the texas democratic delegation that fled to washington, d.c. to boycott their special session in texas last week about vote reform that person is tested positive for covid-19, top aide to house speaker nancy pelosi and a white house staffer tested positive, the white house is being criticized for the handling of this incident peter doocy has more. >> there is some head scratching going on in washington, d.c. amongst some republicans who don't understand why exactly how entered white house officials are not making age bigger deal about a staffer crossing paths with the runaway texas delegation and getting infected
with covid-19. >> the hypocrisy any time there was anybody on the republican side that tested positive they would automatically call it a super spreader event the mainstream media would be runnings. for days. >> following report to texas delegation of speaker pelosi staffer, no changes in masking policy or social distancing until the cdc updates their guidance, if that happens in the white house iss coming clean tht there has been multiple cases of covid-19 at the white house recently but they did not tell anybody about it atbo the time. >> you are also confirming there has been other breakthrough cases but you have not previously disclosed that there had been. >> that is correct. >> even though the white house promised on the first day at the first briefing to always be transparent. elizabeth: peter doocy it's good to see you think of for joining us, let's welcome back to the show texas representative for
brian babin, great to see you it looks like the political stunt backfired to a pr disaster, what do you say about that. >> absolutely turned into ae pr disaster they were invited and a fat cat paid their way appear in they look like they're living high they are crying wolf how put upon they are in their runaway slaves of the underground railroad, et cetera they did not wear masks on the private aircraft another super spreading they disobey their own rules they gave covid to the white house and nancy pelosi speakers office and there derelict in their duty, their deserters they were elected by texas constituents to go there in austin, not washington, d.c. and vote on all of the important
topics and issues of the day and they fled the state which is absolutely prevented texas legislation from being passed and especially with a voter integrity bill where millions and millions of americans were so concerned about irregularities and anomalies done in the name of covid and they change in these various dates and they won't eventa go there there derelict in their duty, it is horrible and they d need to go back to texas and fulfill the responsibility to the great state of texas. elizabeth: we hear you there serious stuff going on with theu delta variant and cases on the rise in all 50 states senator mitch mcconnell is saying get vaccinated or you will risk another shutdown, california nevada talking about mask mandates for vaccinated people indoors, massachusetts, louisiana, new jersey talk there about restrictions again the
country, where you think this is headed. >> but certainly hope it's not headed toward any lockdown i don't think we need to see any lockdown it would be an absolute disaster for our economy and not only that the delta variant we don't know that much about it just yet. we know there is b some abilityo pick that up even if you been vaccinated but listen forcing people to be vaccinated with an experimental vaccine is absolutely wrong, we need to use common sense when you're in close proximity to people, unlike what the democrats did with their jaunt up your to texas to d.c., you need to wear a mask and be careful, use common sense i am vaccinated myself i am a healthcare provider and i think we need to be very careful, i think with the vaccinations that we have had we are probably at a herd
immunity level, at least approaching that if not already there and let's use common sense, the worst thing we can do is lock down and keep people homing kids out of school it is bad forl. health, it can be wore than the delta variant. elizabeth: scientists, autonomous around the world say the lockdowns were botched and they were necessary and said you needed to have common sense you shut down large gadarenes but you didn't have to shut down the local dry cleaner or the guy who fits in your shoes, this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated vaccines do save lives there is growing pushback of the sheriff last week said he's not going to enforce the local mask mandate, we see that and we see pushback in places like nevada and the like there is a lot of talk of
hippo and misunderstanding of hippo it only covers healthcare providers saying they can't gete out information. we are herd businesses will ask for vaccine passports inside the place of businesses, what do you say about that. >> that is absolutely wrong, asking people toe provide proof, it needs to be common sense. as i said, i am vaccinated many people have been vaccinated and quite frankly i actually am a member of the caucus of house of representatives we have gotten videos encouraging people to be vaccinated. i think it's absolutely wrong in a free country to mandate vaccinations that have not been accepted by the fda other than emergency vaccinations. i think it's absolutely wrong, you cannot do that and you
should not do that in this country, do i recommends? the vaccination, yes, i do but it doesn't need to be given to children, it doesn't need to be given to young people, you need to use common sense, that's what has to happen. elizabeth: that's what has to backn, great to have you on, don't be a stranger, come back soon. were coming out of the bottom of our you're watching the fox business network chris bedford we have the media weighing in and tried to blast senator rand paul and his fight with dr. fauci were looking to government document to dr. fauci's own statements the document support senator rand paul, we are going to take on this fight next, you want to "the evening edit" on fox business. ♪

on the media ripping into senator rand paul the media is going after senator rand paul for questioning dr. fauci when government documents in y dr. fauci's own words show the senator rand paul is right, what do you think of this fight. >> i was pulling up the headlines to refresh my mind and if you are reading cnn or height yahoo, you would've assumed that dr. fauci was dunking on grandpa and it's a complete owning headline, you go girl but if you look into the basics of this and the actual research that we have and the information we received from our government, dr. fauci is a best misleading and very most likely lying about this, we know he was drinking a function research which makes it more dangerous and intentionally to make it more dangerous as part of studying possibly weaponization and no indication that was the goal here.
there has been some voices who have turned on dr. fauci regarding this for example the nation which a left-wingef publication, he lost them he said maybe 37 years at the top position of this powerful for too long has made him delusional comparing himself to science and saying anyone who criticizes science is trying to attack him when he lostt the nation you're starting to lose people on the left. elizabeth: let's listen to don lemon on cnn, watch this. >> what is wrong with rand paul, seriously. >> i know that's what you are at home are thinking i'm thinking the same thing, what is wrong with them, what is he trying to prove, there's nothing to prove, he keeps immersing himself, rand paul, stop it, you look like an idiot, the lying and misinformation is why we can bridge a political gap even
though her lives are at stake and you still have people acting like rand paul. elizabeth: let's show the viewer again with the government documents show a long history of nih backing on gain-of-function to provideon risk research datig back a generation before sars broke out in asia you will see doctor pol a washington post op-ed saying it's beneficial to create dangerous lab created viruses created in the lab in order to get insights onto these viruses, 2012 he said the benefits outweigh the risks in this research, goes on and on and on the documents show that the nih and the and iad were sending millions of dollars over to the wuhan lab and into china to do the research i'm not sure where don lemon is headed and not sure of don lemon is cracking a government document or reading into this, what do
you say. >> i think don lemon is repeating propaganda, he's the type of guy that is difficult to dislike, he so unimpressive and it's a comic book character of e himself. we have the evidence at this topic, we knoww for example that the presidential ban on doing the gang ofio function research and funding expired in 2017 and was not renewed until the presidential order in april 2020 said were not doing this, we know under dr. fauci money was going to the raleigh g institute to study these things that were outside of our ethical control and i think scientists like, tho united states has a lot level of ethical control or at least pretend to, this was pushed dr. fauci was involved, he was in charge and he's lying, the reason we want to know, we want to know where the virus came
from i'm not looking to punishnt nih people but i want to find out if our taxpayer money was going to former obligee institute was studying disease to help destroy the economy of the entire world. elizabeth: that's the issue, let's stay on this for a second 2018 we just showed the sound clip that dr. fauci on camera saying were restarting funding e'of gain-of-function meaning super virus research, 2018 we will look into this pathogen we said on camera it's an issue of oversight you can't say we will open this again to do the funding into the dangerous research instead don't know where the money was going i don't know how the money was spent i don't know what the hewuhan lab is doing when your b is oversight in thehe grand documents it talks about risks administration and oversight of these risks and there is guard rails and the government. document saying the nih in the and iad you gotta do n the
monitoringon you have to do the oversight, you have to administer and gotta be government officials looking out for the american taxpayer, looks like that did not happen, your final word. >> when you destroyed the car economy you lost your rights, now i want the american taxpayer and people want senator rand paul in their and watching out for us because this is way too important to leave to the scientists, we think they're too smart to ever have anynk consequences. elizabeth: chris bedford, great to have you want. come back soon. we have another hot story and battled california congressman eric swalwell, it's not an election year, the campaign records show he spent more than half a million dollars in campaign money the second quarter and looks like you went to alcohol, limos, luxury restaurants the hotel where his wife once worked, swalwell under the microscope for his

male adult carrying an assault rifle accompanying illegal immigrants with backpacks and drugs on the back, you know what i mean. >> like i said there in the of nowhere and they won't hesitate to take violent action because there movie millions of dollars of fentanyl across the border we are already over 90000 fentanyl overdoses inar the country people need to realize this is not a border issue, fentanyl is going across the country if someone dies of a drug overdose or fentanyl in ohio or new york you can guarantee that came across the southwest border because half of the agents are dealing with a humanitarian crisis so drug dealers are taken advantagef of it this is not an immigration issue, it's a national security issue it's a drug pandemic issue is the human trafficking issue, 31%% getting sexually assaulted, children areki dying, there beig abandoned in the middle of nowhere this is a national security issue in the biden of
administration is ignoring it. elizabeth: texas officials are saying the sheer magnitude and the size of the number of groups coming through with people is overwhelming the rio grande valley sector apprehended more than 15000 illegal immigrants and a single week, it feels like were tempting fate and pushing up against it, the fear is the drug cartels which they already threatened, last week they threatened to shoot a borderre patrol across the rio grande river from their side in mexico. it feels like were pushing it here that something'ser going to aphappen, there could be a shooting involving drug or human smugglers against u.s. citizens, what do you say. >> there's absolutely going to be a violent account with drug cartel, i was guarantee and i will guarantee there will be a big smuggling incident where many people died, the migrants
themselves because now they're starting to board up tractor-trailers again, i investigated a tractor-trailer incident in texas with 19 dead migrants that suffocated to death. now it's up again, was disturbing about this a administration you cannot name one thing that this administration has done to slow the flow, they have not done onm thing to try to keep those numbers down and a consequence of a deterrent to illegal activity they keep offering more incentives last week they said we will open the amateur of people who claim asylum not only domestic violence, high crime areas, they will qualify to claim asylum they offer more incentives and based on that alone more people will come and try to b claim asylum they just keep feeding and feeding the fire. elizabeth: tom homan thank you for joining us, we appreciate it and thank you for your service to our country, thank you so much for watching i am elizabeth
