And turning now to the presidential transition president elect Joseph Biden meeting with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer today H and now ward tonight the Biden transition team is in touch with congressional committees such meantime today president trump with a rare appearance in the White House briefing room which but still refusing to concede the election bush and for the seventeenth today in a row not taking any questions from reporters our chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl reports. The president has largely stayed out of sight since losing the election but today he came before the cameras and falsely asserted he actually wanted me. Campaign. Which I won by the way but did find that out. Almost 74 million votes in fact trump lost by nearly six million votes nationally. And by a decisive margin in the Electoral College while the president did venture beat for the cameras today he left without taking any questions. Fax neither he nor the vice president. Has answered any questions in the more than two weeks since the election but the walls are closing in on the president. Two day Republican state officials in Georgia after a painstaking audit. By hand of every vote announced the state had certified Joseph Biden as the winner. The numbers reflect the verdict of the people. Not a decision by the secretary of State's office or courts or by their campaigns. The president's legal team is now floating the idea of trying to ditch the election results in states like Michigan and Pennsylvania. And have the Republican state legislatures pick the winner instead of the millions of people who voted in the election. Our on the ballot hey the Republican leaders of the Michigan State Legislature traveled to Washington to meet with the president. On the way they were met by protesters some Republicans are outraged at the prospect of the president. Pressuring local politicians to throw out the election results. Mitt Romney tweeting. The president has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials' to subvert the will of the people and overturn the election. The white house Press Secretary insisted today there is nothing inappropriate about the meeting. It is not a happy to see meeting there'll be. No one from the campaign there he routinely meets with lawmakers from all across the country. But there's nothing routine about any of this. Meanwhile president elect Joseph Biden did something today the president trump hasn't done more than a year he met with the speaker of the house. My Oval Office. You wrote me Costin who cut. Former a lot of time. She and dumping Karl joining us now the president invited to lawmakers John from the Michigan State Legislature. White House today he's been challenging each the results there where she lost by 150000. Votes what more can you tell about this controversial meeting. Well juju this was a meeting with the two Republican leaders of the state legislature in Michigan. And the legal team the president's legal team have been suggesting that they could somehow bypass the will of the voters. And shoes the elector Ers choose basically the winner of the presidential election in Michigan instead. Odd that these two leaders Republican leaders made it clear they would not go along with that they put out a statement that said. In part quote the candidates who win the most votes win elections in Michigan. Ended Michigan's elect oral votes. These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections and they spoke about asking for coded funds which I thought was interesting each and are also learning tonight John that the president's son Don junior has tested positive for coal bed. Yet Don juniors are spokesperson put out a statement saying that he tested positive. At the beginning of the week he has been self isolating the statement said out at his cabin. The statement also says -- T is currently asymptomatic. So many developments follow thank you so much Jon Karl thank fugitive. And joining us now is Tennessee Republican senator Marsha Blackburn thank you so much for your time. And happy to be Wiki thank you. Not at all let's get right to it it's been seventeen days since the election and two weeks ago you joined our show and told my colleague Lindsey day march that you served on local election commissions and that elections are not run by federal officials but by local fish such and today many of those local officials have spoken Georgia just short time ago certifying their results. For Joseph Biden victory there more states following next week have you spoken yet with the president elect to congratulate him on his victory. I have not spent ten net at with a president like we did have the vice president come to the floor. Vice president elect. Come to the floor this week to cast and take cast of day by congress residing at the time didn't get seized secret car. And that you know we're watching the process. Lay out GG doing just as we did in 2000. When a Tennessean Al Gore. Act and George Bush were going through the counting of the hanging Chad. We will work through this process I will say now is the time. For the trump campaign if they have and air information. And that they need to present in court now is the time they need did take be taking that evidence. Typical art. And so now is clearly at a time given that the child campaign has should. Withdrawn or lost court case after court case you know sixteen thus march on and in those courts of law judges have seen no evidence of widespread election fraud and package. To the contrary they tossed out cases such summarily isn't time do you think for you and your Republican colleagues to except that Joseph Biden as a president elect and publicly declare that. Here is a process the media doesn't declare and as we had discussed previously with Lindsay. This is something in your loved telling your state officials do as they certify those elections that is a the an important part of our process the other NG issue is this is put the attention on diesel local election commission. Cleaning up their rules and when you talk about Georgia and the importance of the Georgia race with a two run offs and dad are they here and didn't die evidence that has come forward in the year with. Individuals and then had lived out of state or were deceased. The questions are ranch. Does the buckets of the issues whether it was a mailing out. Of the ballots the certification. And they came and I'm making certain that this signature matched both floor. The ballot was separated. I does art things that we feel confident in dead Giorgio will get a handle on on these issues I think also let's say senator but he some see in the next Steve eat and then next year. These state legislatures. Are going to move forward and they are going to pass laws is addicting about having your state legislatures. And your local election commission in charge out Wednesday are going to be gear to predicting there were gaps. And they are going to be the ones that are going to cling not accident that's a good positive step so let me just. Follow up in your earlier remarks he referred to and I believe you referred to Joseph Biden as president elect you certainly referred to Connell Harris as the vice president election does that senior publicly acknowledging that status aside from the semantics and declaration or auction you know. You know final action. There will be time to to do that right ma'am. I it is important that we settled this I think it's every illegal that it is Camden Donald Trump would get. Or more years of course he is that cannon dent out of my party but. Bay here in mind and I think this is so important to keep in mind to write me I'll. We have gone through nearly four years. That exact. It Democrats say look first where the resistance they named themselves out and then I want to obstruct and then. We had Russia and we had Ukrainian we had impeachment. All of these things to. Is it Donald Trump was not legitimately. Elect and we don't want that to happen we went through the entire eight years of George Bush. With people saying well he was not legitimately. Elected. Let slip that people this country speak it is not. The John the any of the news organizations. Declared the winner this is up to the people of the country it is up to. Though the boards of election it is activities secretaries of state. And don't want us all and that has transpired in the electors have been appointed. And there is eighty I alike to oral college in then that is the time. To make Canada use it dies it declarations. And add that only whether it is president trump for four more years are Joseph Biden for a new charm. That will mean that time. To do that right I just I want to point out I I know senator. Is and the election security an election integrity. In is what I'm hearing more outbound. I'm people whether they live in Georgia RE they are here in Tennessee they want to make certain that these. I irregularities. Are investigated. And that these. Our address and yet there's no proof of any of that thus far senator I know you choose your words carefully so I just want to. Double down on this idea that you referred to your senate colleague commonly Harris as a vice president elect. And at that. But to. And what I'm going to tell you again in his eye believe every legal but it was Downey Donald Trump could get four more. Gears and in the end if I'm Joseph Biden is deemed to the president elect and Connell a Harris. That vice president on land it and we will move forward from there and at this polite we need to have these investigations. Done. We need to have on the truck campaign. Presenting their evidence in court. And we need to make certain legal ballots are camps and let me tell about pandora senator let me ask you about your senate colleague on from Tennessee the retiring senior senator Lamar Alexander rushed he's calling for the transition to begin so that everyone can be ready on day one do you agree without assessment I mean Joseph Biden has said that lives could be lost with delay they aren't able to coordinate with the crush of buyers task force on vaccine distribution. Every senator was offered an opportunity to half a briefing yesterday. On both the vaccine distribution. And on the progress with the vaccines and I think Donald Trump deserves a tremendous amount of credit. For operation board speed. And for getting these vaccines. To use to the market this quickly it wise it is something that is unprecedented. And I think it's going to be a tremendous. Opportunity. Out for the American people to see what happens when you get government regulations. Out of the way. And wind that agencies are told to work with the private sector to make it a priority. So that you solve problems for the good of all all the people pets and it's going to BS a big success. Lower or his campaign senator that's an eloquent answer but it doesn't answer the question I asked which is do you saying the transition should go under way so that. Joseph Biden can how to run a virus house worst briefings Yasser now. There is going to be the opportunity for damage as they began to think to war if they are declared the winner which of course right now it looks is yet. They're deleting Indies Electoral College and from what I'm hearing they are mating forward. On the finally coldly cases. As you well know senator are breaking records across the country many of the top 100 hardest hits communities are rural areas a quarter of a million Americans are now dead ash ten Americans dying every fifteen minutes since the pandemic began each putting partisanship aside. A whole host of benefits are set to expire December 31 to help unemployed and struggling Americans each do you plan to work which Republicans and Democrats to try to get a new relief bill. Package. Eight we have been working. And trying to get him as a matter fact we have twice good and it. Our senate bill on the floor this would reposition. 350. Billion dollars at here is active money that was left to number. And begin to keep you long I in June unemployment insurance placing it up 300. Dollars a week money for vaccines for testing of course he she know the rapid test is something that is important.

Any Hollywood boulevard businesses are boarded up scum and villainy is still closed in its owner JC wife and Burke says the rain is piling up. Our rent here is 21000 dollars a month. Which is just a crew wing because. It's being on Hollywood boulevard we don't have outdoor dining space to take advantage of the the laws that LA put in place to expand beyond I think as of December 1 will be over a 160000. Dollars behind on. Since the federal government has not passed a second stimulus bill in California has only passed legislation that allows runners to put off their full payments to next year. Wife and Burke has essentially run out of options. The community dough in evening Kevin Smith are rooting for the bar survival. Some of the greatest nights of my life have been spent to scum and villainy cantina it was an oasis in the middle of Hollywood I really hope. Take over didn't kill. There's our.

Rooting for them well we come back the FBI is joining that urgent manhunt after a thirty year old allegedly fired his assault rifle to. At an officer. Forcing evacuation of his neighborhood. The teenage murder suspect accused of killing two people during protests is now free as we're learning more about the weapons used that night. But up next no knock warrants have been a contentious point of debate after the tragic death of Rihanna Taylor. Did you know several of the officers involved in that incident also took part in another case that another family has been left outraged. Stay with us. The death of Rihanna Taylor has sparked anger and questions about the manner in which she died since the beginning each. She was inside her home when police executing a search warrant stormed inch. Her boyfriend a legal gun owner fired one shot and police responded with a barrage of bullets she. In tonight's 20/20 our team explores all aspects of this tragedy age but in a sneak peek right now we wanted to take a closer look at the papal warrants that brought police to her home that. One David offspring bill Mario land. So many things had happened for brown tailored to die that night go go go go go go. Whoever shock it is possible. If anyone to blame. The system failed everybody. I think the system failed to be human. And I think it's a chain of events after that. On a night of march 12 into march 13 law enforcement set out to execute several circle. I hang out. More urgent home yes they're going to hit four different house and his staff that went one over on one out. Let's go let's go out and that's how we find ourselves outside her apartment. Very early morning hours but which. The Warren for Rihanna Taylor department was written at the known not on board. No knock warrant allows him to show up. Many residents of apartment take a battering ram and bust the door that no not. Warrants are just not comment. It's some of the more dangerous things you can do and law enforcement both for the officers and the people inside. The opportunity to prevent the destruction of evidence is what God's decision. To ask for a no knock war. Police reportedly thought that the economy in Denton. Receiving drugs are holding cash they wanted to recover whenever they come and. They knew that annexed Kuwait. Out to markets Glover. He use that address on big state.

The postal inspector came forward and that night telling any number of Ellen PP. It jamarcus has received he packages he sits in the community. Everyone place. Police in the streets. Rihanna was never someone who hailed money for you sold narcotics never held narcotics for you. Well known belt this topic of Britain aren't. Go through I don't do. They were the briefing that evening before law enforcement officers went out in the Warren from Rihanna Taylor department was changed. What with the change from unknown not tooling not to announce his decision with that that was the detective in charge. Our intent was to give her plane time becomes or with businesses chips probably their loans bang on the door. No response bang on an Indian no response at that point start announcing yourself please just from the door Kenny says he never heard. An announcement the police of course say they did it. It wasn't me out there playing cowboy Ian and be an out of control. Mean we were asked to do the job and task. We wrote doing the job he may say I was just do my job. I think responses dammit that's your job is something wrong with your job. I think it's crucial to understanding this story to understand today it's. These sorts of problems. Are not news to Alan PD the department has had all sorts of issues and it's had issues with police raids specifically in. In 20185. Of the officers who were involved in the raid on Taylor's home. Executed a different grade. On another. Dude. Our arts and what it art what. Last. Or. We eight so hers and V. Yeah the police get a complaint about someone at that address growing and selling marijuana. But they wait so long to actually look into that complaints that by the time they read the lone player. Someone else's moved angels. We're. Earth and rearm. Us this scourge. Is it a coincidence that these two cases happen in the same police department in similar circumstances. Or might there be something culturally questionable and that police department. And our wars in my estimation were committed tabs on constitutional. Because they were executed disproportionately against. People off Carla specially bred people. Have you thought in your mind had we done it differently. Only. We would've either served a no knock warrant or we would have done the normal thing we do which is about ten seconds. To not give people time to formulate a plan I get tapped people time to get their senses so they may have been an idea what they're doing. Because if that happens Tony Mike that it happened around their veal you believe she Billups. If you had just. Storm did yes. And that give them time. Couldn't. Saying her name embryonic Taylor a special 20/20 event with the global courier journal airs tonight at 9 Pacific. On ABC. She and still ahead here on crime. As a homicide investigation continues the mother of the fifteen year old found dead in a sugar cane fields. Is speaking out in an ABC news exclusive. And it's an overlooked story as the country waited for president trump to finally concede. All the Republicans did well on election night and that could have profound implications. On future elections we'll take a look by the numbers. But first our tweet of the day paying tribute to trans day of remembrance during a year when more trans women have been murdered. Than any other. And now back to the election Democrat Joseph Biden has won the presidency but down ballot Republicans made substantial and unexpected gains such that will have lasting impacts. Here's a look at a numbers. Just one senate seat that's the Democrats net gain despite predictions they would flip the senate control now comes down to two run off races in Georgia in early January she and Republicans gained an unexpected nine house seats on net setting them up to potentially flip that house rat. In 20/20 two. These winds includes fifteen Republican women who defeated democratic incumbents. And because Republicans won in state houses across the country should they'll now control the redistricting a 43% of the House of Representatives share compared to Democrats control of just 17%. Of the nation's redistricting. This redistricting which sometimes means gerrymandering. It happens just once every ten years. So these Republican victories will no doubt have long lasting impact.
