♪ ♪ fall-out between the u.s. and russia after sanctions announced. accused of trying to sway the presidential election >> this is the hottest story at 6:30. tweet us what is on your mind about that using the #5at630 >> this was the scene as cars arrived at the russian compound in dc. earlier this morning, vatican pewed announced he will not expel u.s. diplomats from his country in response to the
6:31 pm
putin expel 35 american diplomats >> russia denied any interference. short time ago donald trump tweeted this, great move on delay by v putin. i always knew he was very smart. joining to discuss this is katie national security reporter from the hill. we appreciate it. what are we to make of this tweet from donald trump where he seems to be embracing putin more and more despite everything that's going on >> you certainly have not seen the president-elect back away from his praise of vladimir putin as a strong leader that has so many democrats concerned that when he takes office he he's not going to do anything to hold russia accountable for this widespad
6:32 pm
election that the intelligence believe they've undertaken, you've seen the president-elect align himself with the president of russia over the sitting president of the united states of america >> how often have we seen that? i don't know that we ever have. because of, you know, all the tension, you know, people have been comparing this to the fact that we haven't seen this since the cold war, the tension right now between president obama and putin. do you think that something more could come of this or do you think once trump takes office this is kind of dissolved >> i don't think this is an issue that's going to go anywhere any time soon. because while trump himself has said that i think the country needs to move on. democrats on capitol hill and some republicans on capitol hill have said this is a big problem. this was an attack on our democracy and it requires a sustained response. just today, john
6:33 pm
the chairman of the arm service it's committee announced he will be holding a hearing next week with senior intelligence officials to discuss the breadth of what happened during the election and along with senator lindsay graham who's also a republican, they're have stronger sanctions needed. what obama did yesterday was too littling too late. republicans in congress are signalling they're not going to let this issue go in january. >> how might this play out? again, it's rather extraordinary. i'd seen people argue online and i get this argument, that first of all, you know, the people who are with trump are with him no matter what he said but i've seen other people say if this were flipped, and if it were a democratic president embracing a russian president over our own republican president that people's heads would be exploding about this. how will this play out in t
6:34 pm
months ahead >> it will be interesting to see what the -- what the contours of this fight will end up being, what the republicans choose to stand with the president-elect sort of stated position that we need to move on, and which ones choose to stand with mckane and graham who say this is a big deal and something we should do something about. you've already seen quite a few republicans come out and say exactly what trump and his team have been saying, which is we don't know that russia was actually behind this. the administration hasn't given us enough details. i think the next big fight you're likely to see is more of a push for details. president obama ordered this report from his intelligence community laying out exactly what happened during the election. a classified version of that is set to go to congress. how much the public will se
6:35 pm
remains to be seen. but also what remains to be seen is how convincing this will be to some lawmakers who perhaps are not 100% convinced that russia was behind this >> whenever i see this going on, i'm curious what this looks like around the world especially with putin coming out and saying the u.s. diplomats are welcome here. we're not going to do anything. they're welcome here for the holidays. by him kind of smugly saying that, you know, what does that send, i guess, around the world? what type of message does it make the u.s. look weaker? does it make us look like the bad guy? how does it play out? >> in the, right now, what we know is that it makes putin -- makes it obvious that putin is betting on a friendly white house come january 20th. it signals that he believes that a president-elect t
6:36 pm
to advance policies that make sense for russia that he believes are good for russia and that he believes president-elect trump is a leader that you can cultivate as somewhat of an al lie. >> thank you so much for shedding light on this. will be interesting to see what happens in the coming months. the other big question, a lot of people are talking about as we head into the weekend. are you heading out tomorrow to celebrate the new year? >> mike thomas is here with a look at the weekend forecast. it's been a cold chilly one day. i wish it would warm up for tomorrow. >> well, you might get your wish, only with like two, three degrees. >> great >> baby steps, sarah. we got 60s on the forecast. but not for tomorrow. happy new year. happy eve of new years eve and if you are heading out tomorrow night, be aware, you'll need the jacket, 30's, 40's, good news, few clouds. we will keep it dry for new years eve. what about

6:40 pm
2016 was a big year for politics in the united states with one of the most bitterly fault presidential elections in modern history >> debates primary battles came to a head on election night. this past year reshaped the american politicalandscape going afraid. joel what wouldman takes a look back at the year in politics. >> i know how disappointed you feel because i feel it too. >> reporter: it's one of the biggest surprises to come out of 2016, hillary clinton's throws donald trump in the race to become it's 45th president of the united states of america >> our campaign was never about one person or even one election. it was about the country we love. >> reporter: after a long primary race with bernie sanders, clinton quickly bec
6:41 pm
preelection polls proved to be off >> i just received a call from secretary clinton >> trump, who fault a bruising primary against 16 gop rivals not only won a decisive victory, he also swept wisconsin, north carolina striking a consilitory tone, he mocked her at crooked hillary >> we owe her a major debt of gratitude >> he met with president obama who promised a smooth transition process. green party candidate jill stein, however, was not so cooperative filing recount citing the possibility of election fraud and computer hacking >> this is about the american voters who deserve to have a
6:42 pm
>> reporter: one of the big issues of the campaign had to do with the future makeup of the supreme court. that point was under scored by the death in february of conservative justice antonin scalia who died of natural causes while hunting in texas. >> he will no doubt be remembered as one of the most consequential judges and thinkers on the supreme court >> president obama nominated merit garland. the nomination never made it out of the isn't it judiciary committee as republicans argued it should be the new president who chooses >> the president has an right to submit a name and to, you know, pick a person. on the other hand, it's the senate's right to confirm or not confirm. >> reporter: minority leader harry reid who pushed through a bill votes required for a judicial nominee accept the supreme court retired from the senate after serving 30
6:43 pm
my good looks. i didn't make the because i'm a genius. i made it because i worked hard. >> reporter: the senate paid tribute to out going vice president joe biden who served three decades in the chamber. chuck schumer will take over for mr. reid when the senate returns in 2017. but remains to be seen what kind of working relationship will have with the new president with whom he shares a long history as a new yorker. in washington, at the capitol, joel wal dman fox news >> joining us to talk more about politics in 2016 and give their predictions on what the new year will bring. it's quite a tall order. two people we talked to a lot over past year. brendan daily and niles stand is. i know it's hard to look back at the beginning of the year and look where we have come but did you ever think we would be here at this point af
6:44 pm
did you -- could you even have imagined it >> no. speaking for myself, no, that donald trump would be president of the united states of america in a few weeks is really -- it is mind boggling and most people didn't predict that. i believe all. us, particularly on the democratic side are coming to grips with that. some of my friends are talking about going through the stages of grief of anger, denial and coming to the new year, you're going to go see democrats what are they going to do? we just don't know what he's going to do. mr. trump is very unpredictable. we don't know what's going to happen >> that speaks to one of the interesting things about the year, heading up to the election, there was a lot of people saying, ok, what do the republicans do after this? they nominated trump. a lot thought he would not be the standard, certainly would not win. a lot thought that. folks were predicting the death of the republican party. now it'she
6:45 pm
worried. >> absolutely. a big change. what people were anticipating when they thought trump was going to lose was that being taken by other republican party as proof that you couldn't run on the kind of trump iain platform. now that is all changed, not only does he win the election but he we want crucial states in the so-called blue wall, which democrats had been able to depend upon in previous elections. that's a real problem. but one final thing on this issue, tony is that a lot of democrats i speak to, they're concerned they could take the wrong lessons from this election it was so close. hillary clinton did get almost 3 million more votes than donald trump. actually extrapolating the lessons is more difficult. >> one of them is you have to appeal more to the white wor
6:46 pm
class. there's no question everyone agrees on that but you can't forget about the other coalition that is were success for president obama and also as now said, gave mrs. clinton more votes in the popular vote. what they need to be is be true to their own roots. we need to work for the middle class and jobs, that's what people care about. infrastructure is one area where you'll see cooperation, chuck schumer talked about that. i know in the democrat, they talked about that. the going to depend on what the bill and the proposal from the administration turns out to be. but i think there could be chance for cooperation on that in that area. >> i know we talked about this a little bit before with katie williams i wanted to ask you both looking at what's going on with russia and the back and forth right now with president obama. looking forward over the next year, what kind of relationship do you think we might end up having with
6:47 pm
do you think we may have tighter relations with them >> i think it's an interesting question, donald trump talked up it is a good idea to have a closer relationship with russia, that is not the position of the republican party or the democrat party. it's one of these things where he's very much on his own trying to plow his own on how that will go in the face of presumable. congressional displeasure is an interesting thing >> what do the republicans do. heard earlier senator graham and mckaine will hold hearings, there's now a bipartisan concern about the president being too close to russia. it's frankly a little bizarre to see the tweet today about praising putin yet again. it's just kind of mind boggling this is happening and continues to keep happening. i don't know, once he's president if he
6:48 pm
do it. he seems to defy the odds and keeps doing what he wants to do. i don't know he'll change once he becomes president >> speaking to that, you know, and you talk about the difficulty in gleaning what the right message is to get from the election on all of that. one of the things seemed to stand out to me was that in some ways, it wasn't so much about politics and some of the specific positions on issues. in some ways ways we heard about drain the swamp. we want changes that you system is not working and doesn't work for us. the nation elected somebody who's an outsider. could we see this continues with congressional elections down the line and all of that type of thing >> i think we could because i think there's a real appetite for that kind of change candidate on both sides. that's what powered bernie sanders in the democrat primary giving a much stronger performance than many people thought. and to your point, tony, there e
6:49 pm
country who are struggling, who feel that the system does not work for them, who feel that the political is not responsive to their concerns, be that jobs, the economy, affordable housing is a huge issue in many cities including this one. so those sort of things i think are fertile ground >> you look at the picture why he won, he was chance candidate and she represented the establishment been here 30 years. it would be interesting to see if at the president-elect is not able to create new jobs in the that he wants and kentucky and west virginia and the cold country if that doesn't happen which i think is a very big concern, what do they do? do they turn on him and vote for the democrats? i don't know. i think that's still to be determined there. also, what's the effect of if the republicans do, affect, repeal the affordable care act? 20 million people gotten health insurance that don't have it and i think a lot a
6:50 pm
they're going to lose their health insurance, you may see the republicans try to play with this. they announce the repeal but not enacting it. they're concerned about the political impact. >> there's been indication of that already. >> niles stand age with the hill and brendan daily a thank you for coming in. >> we'll be right back.
6:51 pm
6:52 pm
a popular restaurants featured every president on a large mural located outside the president >> but the owners of mama iesha's saysh s will not be adding the president-elect to the mural. they don't have enough money in their budget to add to the mural of presidents. they feature mama iesha bathroom with the leaders and it's her way of welcoming them to the district. you might remember back in 2015, the mural was actually vandalized by paint
6:53 pm
family raised money through donations to repair the painting at that time. so apparently funds are tight but, you know, a lot of people are going to read that the wrong way >> right. maybe if, donations could be had, maybe >> my suspicion is that as words spreads about this, someone will set up a gofundme page because there's going to be people who feel like you've had all the other presidents, why not donald trump? >> yes. he is going to be the president. there you go >> we'll keep you posted. >> we hope you've already made your new year plans. >> if you haven't, the executive chef at car mine's is here to show us to show us some of the items on the menu this new years eve.
