STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): It sounds like it's going to be a couple of days before we know about Pennsylvania. But right now in Wisconsin with 95% of the vote in, Joe Biden is leading by just a little, and then over in Michigan with 90% of the vote in, Joe Biden is trailing the president by a little. So where are we on this Wednesday morning? 

NEWT GINGRICH (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Well, you know, former attorney general of Nevada Laxalt, Adam Laxalt, warned six or eight weeks ago that the Democrats in Nevada were setting up the state to steal it. I think anybody -- and I was born in Harrisburg, I think anybody who knows much about Pennsylvania history knows that Philadelphia's the center of vote theft and that the governor  and the legislature -- the governor did all he could to maximize the opportunity to steal votes in Pennsylvania. So I think what you're going to see is when you sit around and you watch, you know, all evening long six states in which Trump is ahead, when you're asked to believe none of that counts, and you watch decisions to make other states where Biden is barely ahead go into his column, giving him a psychological boost, and you just wonder, you know, what is going on?


GINGRICH: And now we're in a running fight because I think from the president's perspective, this looked like a setup to steal the presidency by the Democrats and is a very deliberate model of, you know -- you send in ballots after the vote, they don't have to be -- have a signature, they don't have to have a witness. It's an invitation for vote theft. 


BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): If you're advising the president on how to handle these contentious situations in North Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin tactically, not emotionally, what do you advise him? 

GINGRICH: I advise him, first of all, to ask Sen. [Mitch] McConnell and Sen. [Lindsey] Graham to have the Judiciary Committee in the Senate open up investigations on all these different states. As I said, Adam Laxalt's been begging people to realize how much Nevada was set up to be stolen by the Democrats. Philadelphia is notorious for a place that steals votes. All of those things ought to be looked at, first of all, by the law enforcement side, because those are crimes. Second, I think he should be prepared as Jonathan Turley said -- and I think his commentary's been frankly remarkable all the way through this -- the president should be prepared to file suit in every single state, and he ought to go back and look carefully at Arizona. He shouldn't assume automatically that that was legitimate, and I think that he has to continue. The other thing I would say is the more he can be presidential and not candidate-like, the more disciplined he can be in going into this, the better off he's going to be because the country is tired. The country's now frightened. And yet the country, as you said it yourself, the country repudiated a wave of Democratic money.
