“Do you feel comfortable throwing out millions of votes of your fellow Americans?” Wallace asked Scalise.

Scalise responded that “nobody wants any votes thrown out.”

“That’s what the lawsuit would have done,” Wallace countered.

Scalise went on to note that the Supreme Court “said Texas didn’t have standing. They didn’t say they were going to address the merits,” speculating the court was unwilling to involve itself in such a politically charged issue.

“You’re not willing to recognize [Biden] as the president-elect, and you’re not willing to stop contesting the election?” Wallace asked, noting that the Electoral College is set to vote Monday.

Wallace also asked Scalise about reports that the president-elect's son Hunter Biden is the subject of a federal tax investigation and how it tied into Joe Biden's assertion that his administration’s Justice Department would operate independently.

"This is something that’s very serious," Scalise said, blasting Twitter for blocking users from tweeting a New York Post article containing allegations against the younger Biden before the election.

“I’m sure whoever [Joe Biden] puts up for attorney general will be heavily scrutinized by the United States Senate,” he added.
