7:00 pm
tried to water it down a little bit. i'm not sure the public is buying it. guys you are fantastic, appreciate it. at home, we appreciate it. catch us every night at 6:00 p.m. if you can't see the show, tape it, dvr it. in the meantime, the man himself lou dobbs is here. keep it right here, fox business. lou: good evening, everybody. i'm lou dobbs. the democratic party in turmoil tonight, democratic front-runner hillary clinton is responsible for much of it. the state department inspector general issued a highly critical report on the former secretary saying she disregarded state department policies, regulations and law and ignored cybersecurity threats when she used private e-mail for official state department communications. and it appears her e-mail scandal will only widen and worsen in the days ahead. the state department ig findings come on the same day
7:01 pm
that guccifer, the romanian hacker who originally exposed her use of her private e-mail server for official business today pleaded guilty to identity theft and hacking charges. but clinton has much more to worry about than her e-mail scandal. her longtime friend, ally and associate, virginia governor terry mcauliffe is now under investigation by the fbi, and their ties go back decades and include the clinton global initiative and clinton is falling in recent polling in part because of a 74-year-old socialist who won't go away, and who keeps finding ways to beat her, and who is promising a messy convention. we'll have the full story for you here tonight. also, the left-wing fringe of the democratic party allowed to run rampant outside a trump rally in albuquerque last night. new mexico governor susana martinez was nowhere to be found as left-wing protesters throw rocks and bottles at
7:02 pm
police officers. reports of shots fired, overturned trash cans and the demonstrators knocked down barricades. trump in his rally speech last night took time to point out the governor's snub, and the loudy job she's doing, he said, leading new mexico. >> since 2000, the number of people on food stamps in new mexico has tripled. we have to get your governor to get going. she's got to do a better job, okay? your governor has got to do a better job. she's not doing the job. hey, maybe i'll run for governor of new mexico. i'll get this place going! >> and i'll take all of that up with former reagan white house political director, republican strategist ed rollins. and among our guests republican strategist boris epstein and the washington examiner sarah westwood. we'll talk about the possible
7:03 pm
meaning of planned telephone call tonight between donald trump and house speaker ryan. sources telling us their talk won't be about endorsement of trump. so why is ryan holding out on endorsing the presumptive nominee? what's he trying to get out of it all? and what is the speaker's problem or problems? our top story tonight -- hillary clinton's ever-expanding e-mail scandal. a damning report by the state department's inspector general finding that clinton broke federal rules and laws when she set up her personal e-mail server. not only did clinton not seek legal approval to do so, she ignored repeated warnings that her e-mail system was vulnerable to cyberattack. fox news chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge has our report. >> reporter: lou, despite public assurances they want to cooperate, the 83-page report found that mrs. clinton and senior aides refused interviews with government investigators
7:04 pm
and top republicans were quick to respond. >> secretary clinton created this vulnerability. her statements thus far appear on the surface at the beginning to be untrue and needs to come clean. >> the report found that no one approved clinton's unsecured personal server for state department business. a year into mrs. clinton's tenure as secretary when two i.t. staffers voiced concerns about practice and security, they were told never to speak of the secretary's personal e-mail system again, and another exchange shows she was concerned her personal communications would be accessible. like so many of the findings, it conflicts with clinton's public assurances. >> i fully complied with every rule i was governed by. i did not e-mail any classified material to anyone on my e-mail. there is no classified material. >> reporter: but more than 2100 classified e-mails were identified. though the clinton team argues they were upgraded after the
7:05 pm
fact. a january 2011 e-mail from bryan pagliano who struck immunity deal with the justice department documents two cyberattacks on the server in a single day. we were attacked again, so i shut the server down for a few min. the report found other secretaries did use private e-mail but none used a personal server like clinton. at the briefing, the state department spokesman blamed longstanding problems and not clinton's judgment. >> not encouraged to use personal e-mail but not prohibited. we like federal agencies were not doing enough to meet the requirements of records management and preservation. i think we've acknowledged that. >> reporter: in a virginia court, guccifer who first exposed clinton's personal e-mail cut a deal. he faces no more than seven years and promises to fully cooperate at any grand jury's trials or other proceedings. >> not every day that the united states reaches into a romanian jail to extradite an
7:06 pm
individual to charge him of computer crimes. so clearly the prosecutors viewed this person as important. >> reporter: the report found that clinton never demonstrated that server and personal devices met the minimum government security standards. while the campaign says there is no evidence the system was hacked, a congressional source briefed on the report said that is false and the issue is outside the scope of the inspector general's work. lou? lou: catherine, thank you very much. catherine herridge reporting. and on this issue, we should report it as well that hillary clinton's trustworthiness in the view of voters who have been surveyed, those poll ratings at an all-time low for the former secretary of state. donald trump today seized on clinton's e-mail scandal. he said the ig report is, quote, not good news for clinton. trump make the comments in anaheim, california where there is heavy police presence in the hopes of deter anything kind of
7:07 pm
violence similar to what we witnessed last night in albuquerque brought by left-wing groups against the rally by the trump supporters. fox news chief political correspondent carl cameron is in anaheim and has our report. >> reporter: fund-raising and rallying raucous supporters in anaheim, donald trump used the state department inspector general's criticism of hillary clinton's private e-mail server like a club. >> crooked hillary. she's as crooked as they come. inspector general's report, not good. >> reporter: law enforcement in orange county, a republican strong hold in liberal california expressed concerns about protesters and security three weeks ago. trump's rallies are again becoming flash points for anger and occasional violence. >> don't hurt him. i say that for the television cameras. do not hurt him. >> reporter: trump's anaheim rally came a month after the city council refused to vote on a resolution that condemned his
7:08 pm
quote divisive rhetoric, that spurred violent demonstrations, police had to use pepper spray to disperse the angry mob. several officers outside trump's rally were injured and police had to use pepper spray and smoke grenades to calm things down. trump tweeted -- in which trump called hillary clinton a low life, pr suggesting he gets rich off the misfortune of others profiting off others. >> did you know that donald trump was rooting against housing because he wants housing to go down because he wanted to buy, and they've got a clip of me many years ago saying yeah, if it goes down, i'm going buy. i'm a businessman, that's what i'm supposed to do! >> reporter: tries to unite the gop, court women and minorities, trump suggested
7:09 pm
that new mexico governor susana martinez is falling short. >> we've got to get the governor to get going, she's got to do a better job, okay? >> reporter: the governor's spokesman fired back in a statement -- she didn't hear anything about that today. trump has two important appointments tonight, one is an appearance with jimmy kimmel critical of trump's rhetoric and running his own independent campaign for vice president, and the circuit a phone call with house speaker paul ryan to discuss joint efforts to unite the party and when and if ryan will endorse trump, lou? lou: carl, thank you very much, carl cameron, interesting how confused the fiction and nonfiction, the entertainment and the news world get conflicted a bit. they merge. on the democratic side, hillary clinton is doing everything she can to avoid an epic loss in the upcoming california primary. the once presumed front-runner
7:10 pm
trying to, well, to woo the anti-establishment democrats who are still supporting bernie sanders. fox news senior political correspondent mike emanuel in salinas, california, tonight with our report. >> reporter: the battle for the golden state is on. >> be sure to vote on june 7th, bring your friends, bring your colleagues. your family members. >> this campaign is going to win. >> reporter: california is shaping up to being a showdown between those in favor of hillary clinton. >> crooked hillary! >> reporter: and anti-establishment democrats who want bernie sanders. clinton is clearly pushing for a win in the delegate rich golden state. >> i promise you this, if you go and vote for me in this primary, i will stand up and fight for you and fight for the country we love and fight for the future we deserve. >> reporter: and she's keeping the democrats' eventual target front and center, she took to the "ellen degeneres show" to
7:11 pm
attack donald trump. >> he has been derogatory towards all kinds of women. he has specifically called out women by name, insulted them. there is no evidence that he has an understanding of what women's lives are like today. >> reporter: sanders continues doing large rallies in california trying to fire up his grassroots support. >> we are doing something very unusual in american politics. we are telling the truth. [cheers] >> reporter: with democrats speculating about whether dnc chair debbie wasserman schultz will last until the july convention after attacks from sanders, today campaign manager ticked off a long list of grievances. >> people outside the dnc who are very put off the way in which debbie wasserman schultz has run this whole thing. whether it was the cramped debate schedule at beginning, whether it was shutting senator sanders off from his own data and back before the iowa caucuses.
7:12 pm
there's a number of examples. >> reporter: the democrats' leader in the house pushed back. >> chairwoman wasserman schultz has the respect of her colleagues for her efforts and leadership to unify the party and to win the election in november. >> reporter: democratic sources have been critical telling fox there is always drama with wasserman schultz. while new york democrat congressman steve israel says the bigger issue is democrats being divided. lou? lou: seems to be the issue at hand. mike, thanks so much. mike emanuel. we're coming right back, a lot more straight ahead, stay with us. a big primary win for donald trump in washington. he's just 28 delegates away from officially clinching the nomination. now he's fighting to win over an important demographic. >> i want to set records with women, not with men. the hell with the men! right? the hell with the men! i want to set records with women!
7:13 pm
>> so will women say yes to trump in november? ed rollins joins me here next. and more devastation across the great plains. we have the amazing close-up of nature's fury after these messages. much more ahead. stay with us. we'll be right back. ♪ ♪ (singing) you wouldn't haul a load without checking your clearance. so why would you invest without checking brokercheck? check your broker with brokercheck. poallergies?reather. stuffy nose? can't sleep? take that. a breathe right nasal strip instantly opens your nose up to 38% more than allergy medicine alone. shut your mouth and say goodnight, mouthbreathers. breathe right.

7:17 pm
lou: msnbc's hard ball host justifying the violence outside albuquerque, new mexico rally last night. listen to his shocking play-by-play for matthews and his panel. >> i think if you were latino immigrant, you would be frankly terrified and very angry. wherever donald trump goes these are the protests that follow him. he eggs them on, he sees this as beneficial to him. it allows him to be the carnival barker and humiliate. >> i see a lot of people expressing humanity in the face of a candidate who has really built his candidacy on denouncing their humanity. >> how does he widdle out a candidacy he's cartoonized. lou: matthews and his panel, i think that was pretty good rationalization, they went on
7:18 pm
-- matthews did, to say, i don't think they're that violent. i don't know what he expected. despite the fact they were setting fires, hurling rocks, bottles at police, knocking down police barricades, shattering glass doors. a venue. joining us former reagan white house political director, republican strategist, great america pac strategist, ed rollins, that was a bravo matthews performance. >> advocates free speech, every one of the people got out of the house, went there to create chaos. they wanted to shut down donald trump, and donald trump doesn't shut down. the idea that wasn't violent, they were throwing rocks, lighting flames, jumping on police cars had, to bring the police to get them back, that kind of a demonstration makes the trump supporters more enhanced. lou: i don't know where president obama has been. here, obviously free speech is
7:19 pm
threatened, right of assembly threatened by violence admittedly from the left, but i'm sure that would concern him as well. i'm being considerably facetious there. >> too busy freeing the terrorists from guantanamo before he gets the last bucket list off his thing, so -- >> 28 delegates to make it official. here we are, looks like he's going to be, he was the presumptive nominee first beating out hillary clinton, now it looks like he's going to clinch perhaps before her. >> there's no question, not only going to clinch it, he's going to basically add a lot more in california. there's no challenge to him today. washington is a little different story in the sense it was a convention system, he's rolling, it's his party at this point in time. everybody jumps on the bandwagon or get run over by the truck. lou: the truck, as you say, to watch the demonstrations and to watch the forces of raid
7:20 pm
against him. here we are, debbie wasserman schultz, the head of the dnc, people are talking about throwing her the heck out. a month ago, it was reince priebus and the republican party. a month ago we'll were talking about really donald has to tone it down a little bit, and now people are trying to get clinton to goose it a little bit. >> the congresswoman will be back running for re-election before the convention, there will be a new chairman of the party. it's one of the things sanders will insist upon, and i would prefer her staying in there because she's totally ineffective. at the end of the day, she's worn out her welcome. lou: on politics and attacking, senator elizabeth warren trying to start a fight with donald trump, saying he's a moneygrubbing businessman basically. he wouldn't bite, though. he dismissed her as pocahontas. >> which reminded people of her
7:21 pm
falsehood when she was running that she was part indian. lou: my cheek bones are native american. >> i think the reality here is that we go look at her record, she did a little wheeling and dealing to make money which is perfectly acceptable during the housing crisis. danger of her, she's a much better candidate than hillary. as she gets out there -- >> who warren? >> yes. lou: i don't argue with you very often, i think she's boring. >> telling it to democrats, to you and i she's boring, to democrats she excites them. lou: you marginalize me. >> i do not. >> that was a microaggression. >> it was a slight brushback. lou: i don't even qualify? >> that rhetoric does not appeal to you or i but to democrats and the sanders people, you know, there's a lot of democrats at this point looking with regret that hillary is the nominee.
7:22 pm
lou: have you and all the folks at the great america pac and trump organization, is everything warm, fuzzy and rose petals on the path forward here? >> i've never seen a campaign that basically is rosy and fuzzy as you get into the fall campaign, there's a lot of pushing and shoving going on. at the end of the days, the candidate is functioning well, he's all that matters and the rest of it is resolved quickly. lou: he is, as you say, he's a truck and he is rolling. all right, thanks, ed. good to see you. be sure to vote in our poll tonight. the question is -- cast your vote on twitter -- . breaking news now, the national weather service has issued a tornado warning tonight for parts of north and
7:23 pm
north central kansas, that warning comes a day after two dozen tornadoes hammered the midsection of this country from michigan to texas uprooting trees, tearing down power lines, wrecking homes and other buildings. over 14 million people remain at risk tonight as the storms continue to threaten the great plains, the midwest and south. up next, it's been a bad day to be hillary clinton. >> some reports came down that weren't so good. but not so good. the inspector general's report, not good. lou: not good, and i'll have a few thoughts on clinton's e-mail scandal, up next in my commentary. much more straight ahead. please stay with us. if a denture were to be

7:28 pm
since her use of a private e-mail server came to life. 14 months ago. in those 14 months the democratic candidate has only stonewalled and misrepresented reality about her use of her home-based server for official e-mails. here she is in a debate back in march, listen to this. >> it wasn't the best choice, i made a mistake, it was not prohibited, it was not in any way disallowed, and as i said and now has come out, my predecessors did the same thing, and many other people in the government. lou: actually it wasn't the same thing, they weren't using personal e-mail servers, but today's long-awaited state department inspector general report reveals the opposite. clinton never, quote, requested or obtained guidance or approval to conduct official business via personal e-mail account on her private server.
7:29 pm
the ig even added that the department would not have approved such a request had it been taken to them. as for clinton's predecessors they added notes that colin powell also exclusively used a private e-mail account, a fact she seized on the campaign did today. clinton spokesman brian fallon tweeted this -- the ig today wrote her reckless official communications on her private e-mail server were targeted in cyberattacks. mrs. clinton and several of her aides refused to meet with the inspector general, although the inspector general had no problem talking with her predecessors and they with him. i believe clinton clearly thinks she is, without a doubt, the
7:30 pm
rules and the laws of this great country, and her summer of scandal is just now beginning and may reach fever pitch in the midst of the democratic national convention. if that occurs her democratic party will come unstuck. the party's moderates and the establishment will be under full-on attack by the bern and his already highly frustrated supporters. messy. messy. that's what bernie says the convention will be. and his may be a serious understatement for what does happen in philadelphia. our quotation of the evening. this one from someone i thought might speak up against the violence of the left, attacking freedom of speech and assembly at the trump rally wherever it might be, the most recent in albuquerque, new mexico. but the president hasn't chosen to do so yet. so while we wait, these words by our president. president obama said --
7:31 pm
odd isn't it? the president's words seem to carry less weight as he remains silent about the violence of the left. we're coming right back. donald trump and speaker ryan to talk by phone tonight. will ryan finally come in from the cold and endorse trump, or will ryan stand with the other losers in the establishment? >> i just happen to see this guy in one of the shows the other day. bill kristol. >> we're still looking for a third-party candidate. >> he's been doing this for like nine months, he can't find anybody. what a loser! >> we take it up with sarah westwood and boris epstein here next. and these firefighters about to feel the power. we have the explosive video for you right after these quick messages. stay with us. we're coming right back.

7:35 pm
. lou: speaker ryan must be feeling some pressure to get tough on hillary clinton. now his political operation has released this statement. as ryan plans to talk with donald trump tonight.
7:36 pm
joining us now, investigative reporter for the washington examiner sarah westwood. good to have you with us. republican political strategist, investment banker, finance attorney, a busy fella, boris epstein, good to have you with us. >> good to be here. lou: sarah, paul ryan was never that tough on barack obama for crying out loud. what's gotten into him, is he taking the primary challenge in his home district? >> well, you know, if there's anything that can unite the paul ryan and donald trump wings of the republican party it's defeating hillary clinton. today's news from the state department should help with that, but donald trump is not lose anything sleep over this delayed paul ryan endorsement. he doesn't need it. the speaker is trying to have it both ways here. he wants to, you know, he knows he eventually has to support donald trump because he doesn't want hillary clinton to be president but wants to preserve
7:37 pm
his own image for the future in case donald trump's political legacy is less than triumphant. he cannot say i was not a willing passenger on the trump train. lou: he looks to me, sarah, honestly as self-centered, selfish, self-absorbed and utterly confused. his hamlet act looks like a gambut to make people forget he's really done nothing in congress, achieved literally nothing, boris, seven months as speaker and already claimed a superiority to john boehner who put him in the job. >> forgot what happened in 2012 with him on the ticket, obama carried wisconsin. lou: that didn't turn out. >> vice president romney? i don't think so. vice president ryan? i don't think so either. there has been the movement in the republican party to annoy paul ryan as our savior.
7:38 pm
not only did obama win wisconsin, he won the first district. he won ryan's home district. lou: you know what else he won? do you know the rest of the arcane numbers? >> janesville. lou: he lost his hometown, and the congressional race. >> and trump won janesville in the primary in wisconsin. lou: yes, he did. unfortunately he didn't win wisconsin. it's a trade-off. i got to keep this thing sdpar balanced. let's turn, sarah to new mexico, to susana martinez. trump going after her after she snubbed him, maybe a couple of very nasty remarks, and the best they could do is come up with a campaign spokesman to respond. what's the deal there? your reaction? >> donald trump has never been one to take a perceived slight laying down, this is all feeding into the narrative he's built so far which is he's not
7:39 pm
afraid to call out members of his own party when he feels they're not being fair to him and when he feels they're not taking care of business. today you heard him say susana martinez, there is unemployment in new mexico, she's not handling it, that's something his supporters want to hear. he's not afraid to take on the establishment in both parties. lou: when you say he's not afraid to take on, boris, afraid doesn't even seem to be in his psyche embedded anywhere, certainly not in his lexicon or code of conduct. >> definitely not. and he has gone the here by being himself. by being brash, right? bucking all the traditions of the republican primary ways and the establishment, but now you're seeing the party coalesce around him, and those leaving themselves out, like governor martinez and speaker ryan are doing it at peril not because of trump but because of the voters they're not listening to.
7:40 pm
lou: and as you and sarah were talking about, paul ryan is over on a side, if you will, ring of the circus. you just sort of watch it not because it matters anymore, because he played himself into irrelevance, but sarah, it's interesting to watch this to see how he's going to mess up that ring he's got on the side that's happening. boris, thank you for joining us. sarah, thank you for joining us tonight. be sure to vote in our poll tonight, the question is -- gosh! imagine that. cast your vote on twitter at lou dobbs. the inspector general may have been imagine just that. we'll see. new video shows how quickly a smoky scene can turn dangerous for our first responders. these firefighters in florida. look at that. called to respond to billowing smoke rising from a manhole,

critics are calling it, to show up in hiroshima. how bad a decision is it? >> very bad. it's the optics, if president obama said i'm not going to apologize, i'm going to talk about my quest for a nuclear-free world. that doesn't matter. it's the optics, the picture, it looks like he's on an apology tour, apologizing for the united states and world war ii and ending world war ii with the atomic bomb. lou: what other interpretation is there? >> there isn't one. lou: why do they persist in this? >> it goes to his mission in his mind he's the man creating a nuclear-free world, speaking up against nuclear weapons. the irony of it as they were planning the trip to hiroshima as he's going to grandstand as the great nuclear activist at the same time the national security adviser was conning the american public on the benefits of the iran nuclear deal they openly admit and
7:48 pm
laugh about was a conjob. they were not telling the truth. lou: this is his legacy, this and the premiums on obamacare are rising 16%, at the same me deal is just a farce, and a very dangerous farce. >> they ignite a nuclear arms race in the middle east. saudis and others said if iran is going down that road, we've got to do so as well. lou: and, putin has been very quiet. president xi has been very quiet as well, even as there are misadventures close to misadventures in the south china sea. why are people a little disturbed in knowledgeable quarters that there is such quiet from what has been such an obvious conflict with the united states, that is beijing and moscow. >> i think two reasons. one, the chinese are going to
7:49 pm
incrementally take advantage of obama as they can. lou: can it be stopped with him in the oval office? >> no, nothing can happen with him in the oval office. lou: does it follow him? >> i think they'll incrementally try to take steps. the russians are the ones to watch. watch the summer olympics. putin loves to create problems around the olympics. i'm expecting something in the baltics around the olympic time. lou: great to see you. >> thank you. lou: on wall street stocks closed higher second straight day, the dow up 145, the s&p up 14, the nasdaq up 34. volume, 3.8 billion shares, i can't tell you how many days that's been the volume level. eerie i say, a reminder to listen to my reports three times a day on the salem radio network. up next, victoria's secret making a shocking announcement. that didn't seem so shocking, did it?

for the first time more kids are living with their parents and spouses. they have chosen to live with good old mom and dad other than settle down with a significant other or someone they couldn't live without. joining us, andy levy from "red eye," and channel 115, parish. let's get to that research. young people living at home. >> apparently the dating
7:55 pm
apartmentappsaren't working. >> people are living with their parents because it's so unbelievably expensive. in new york or locks, $2,000 rent a month easy. >> i think there are two main reasons. the economist for pew who did the survey. people are getting married much later in life than they used to. we have been through a recession, a tech bubble, housing bubble. people are majoring in things in college that don't lend themselves to the jobs that are there. so they have no money. i think those apps are working. tinder and others are working.
7:56 pm
lou: it's a faster date. did i get that wrong? >> no, you are dead-on. trump and warren. this is fascinating. elizabeth warn. senator warren is a vicious political operator. she went after donald trump and she told him off. fling as much mud as you want at the veal donald trump. your words and actions disqualify you from being president and i won't stop saying it. >> that's tough. >> she is wrong. when you hear clinton you think about crooked clinton. why donald trump is doing so well is he's unapologetically not a politician.
7:57 pm
in any other campaign that comment he made in 2007 would have destroyed him. but he's saying i'm going to use my business experience in the white house and it works for him. >> political twitter fights now, that's our thing. >> she needs a lot of help. she is being pocahontas or goofy. >> she decided to be one of the dems leading attack dogs against donald trump. but the thing is, they know trump always fires back. and i think the plan here is to try to get him to fire back when they go too far. the thing is, it's not going to work. and as you said -- >> the opinion of some weak-kneed liberal. >> it doesn't seem authentic when it comes from elizabeth warren.
7:58 pm
the last 34 out of 37 of her latest tweets had donald trump's name in them. it's like she has become obsessed. lou: they will have to be deprogrammed at some point. lou: obama making a surprise statement that he's already thinking of his new job and he says community organizer as he put it a little more famous. isn't that sweet? he's going back to we did so well. >> do we want him to be a community organizer? he didn't do well organizing the community of the united states. maybe he should consider a different career path. >> i think it's good when people do what they are best at. i don't mean that as a slam. he's good at getting speeches and getting people excited. lou: have you listened to the current barack obama?
7:59 pm
>> the community organizer-type speeches. the speech he gave at the south carolina church after that -- it was really good. that's the stuff i's really -- he's really good at. it's the one moment he has had that has been community organizerrish. >> have you seen the house he's moving into after he leaves the white house. that community does not need any organizing. >> lou calls that house a cottage. lou: i haven't seen the picture. andrew levy and carly shimkus, thank you. 95% in our highly scientific poll said the media would not be talking about bill clinton's

past if it were not for donald trump. herman cain and charlie herd among our guests tomorrow. good night from new york. [♪] kennedy: it's hump day, so let's have some fun with this wednesday night. the republican side of the presidential hustle is essentially settled, it's kind of fun taking in the democratic drama trying to figure out what bernie sanders is trying to accomplish. having knocked hillary clinton's goliath in the head, he hasn't killed the giant. so what is he supposed to do with the wounded carcass? bernie will not be the next president. but this makes young fiery
