BILL HEMMER (ANCHOR): So that is Sidney Powell, she is an attorney for the president, claiming they have evidence of voter fraud and she's tying it to a voting machine company called Dominion. The company denies all fraud accusations. The Trump team has not shared their evidence with Americans. Fox News has not seen any evidence. Want to bring in Andy McCarthy, former assistant U.S. attorney and Fox News contributor. Andy, good day to you. I don't know if we're in a different situation now than we were last Thursday when we talked. I saw that interview with Sidney Powell and Maria on Sunday, she sounded convincing. So what now?

ANDY MCCARTHY (CONTRIBUTOR): Now is evidence. You know, at a certain point in time, Bill, it doesn't help anymore to say, you know, a lot of things are rife with possibility for fraud. You know, December 8th is the day that -- is the safe harbor provision in federal law where the states have to certify their electoral votes. If you want to block that from happening it's put up or shut up time.
