10:01 pm
who has lost in an historic way in terms of the popular vote but clearly won in the electoral college. is this something of a national emergency? >> and the abusively biassed press continues to take shots at president-elect trump. monica crowley and doug schoen react. all of that and i go one-on-one with geraldo over immigration. "hannity" starts right here, right now. and welcome to "hannity." so after president-elect donald trump's decisive victory, all of a sudden hacking now matters to the sore liberals on the left and the obama administration and of course the never-trumpers. that's tonight's opening monologue. ♪ all right. so tonight we have john bolton, rudy giuliani and newt gingrich. you saw over the weekend, "the washington post," the "new york times," two abusively biassed liberal mainstream media outlets publish story that the cia without concrete or new evidence, they now think that russian hackers tried to help donald trump win the election. now, president-elect trump react
10:02 pm
to these reports on fox news sunday. take a look. i think it is ridiculous. i think it is just another excuse. i don't believe it. i don't know why, and i think it is just, you know, they talked about all sorts of things, every week it is another excuse. when you look at the story and you take a look at what they said, there's great confusion. nobody really knows. and hacking is very interesting. once they hack, if you don't catch them in the act you're not going to catch them. they have no idea if it is russia or china or somebody. it could be somebody sitting in a bed someplace. i mean they have no idea. >> why would the cia put out a story that the russians wanted you to win? >> i'm not sure they put it out. i think the democrats are putting it out because they suffered one of the greatest defeat in the history of politics in this country, and frankly i think they're putting it out. >> so this morning president-elect donald trump tweeted, can you imagine if the election results were the opposite and we tried to play the russia/cia card? it would be called a conspiracy
10:03 pm
theory, which by the way it is. the president-elect is absolutely right about this. earlier today clinton's campaign manager, john podesta, said that electoral college electors have the right to see intelligence on potential russian hacking before they vote on december 19th, one week from today. can you imagine if the tables were turned and it was donald trump's campaign trying to do this? the left would go nuts. now, before we get into the blatant hypocrisy on this issue, let's set the record straight. let's lay the foundation. the left's recount scheme failed and failed miserably. now they're going to blame the russians. they will blake hacking. now, there's no smoking gun. what we are seeing is president obama, the democrats, they're trying to politicize the issue to try to hurt and delegitimize donald trump. according to a new report, the fbi is now reaching a much different conclusion than the cia on all of this because they have not found conclusive evidence that russia was actually trying to help trump
10:04 pm
win the election. and government officials are saying that the cia's assessment of what happened isn't as clear cut and definitive as what the liberal mainstream media is telling you and reporting. so in other words there is no consensus between the fbi and the cia. according the the "new york times" there is no new information, intelligence or evidence from the cia's investigation into these allegations. so then why is this all of a sudden the big story? now, the daily beast is also reporting there's a revolt going on inside the cia. why? because employees, quote, hate trump's guts and they don't like his national security advisor nominee, retired lieutenant general michael flynn. then you have never trumpers like senator mccain and lindsey graham. they are joining chuck schumer for a, quote, bipartisan investigation into the so-called hacking when we have no new information, nothing new from before the election. now, we shouldn't be surprised by any of this.
10:05 pm
why? because they all have one thing in common, they hate president-elect trump. now, if all of these people care so much about these russian allegations, then why didn't they feel the same way about hillary clinton's private server scandal and the great threat that that posed the our national security? you the fbi director james comey said there was little doubt that foreign actors gained access to hillary clinton's e-mails. remember this? >> we did not find direct evidence that secretary clinton's personal e-mail domain in its various con figufigurati since 2009 was hacked successfully. but given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence. we do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial e-mail accounts of people with whom secretary clinton was in regular contact from her personal account. >> awe, and don't forget director comey said clinton's
10:06 pm
private server was less secure than a gmail account. according to bret baier's reporting from november, remember, authorities believed up to five foreign intelligence agencies may have accessed clinton's server and taken e-mails. so where was the great outrage from the left that is all up in arms now? if they're so concerned about interference and influence, why didn't they care about the media and their collusion with the clinton campaign? remember wikileaks? well, they exposed how the mainstream media was caught red handed. what were they trying to do? influence the election, help hillary clinton win, cleing interim dnc chair donna brazile leaking debate questions to the clinton campaign. how about doing an investigation into that? how did they help hillary cheat can? liberals in the media have been pushing the idea russia used julian assange to try to impact the election and gave wikileaks access to john podesta's in box.
10:07 pm
assange head russia did not give him the e-mails, and when i interviewed julian assange on my radio show, here is what he told me about the democrats pushing a connection to russia. >> the democrats always speaking about how terrible mccarthyism was, and it was in many ways. but at least the ussr existed then and there were russian campaigns in the united states which were serious. what we are seeing now is hillary clinton and her campaign trying to whip up a near mcka t mccarthy hysteria where she claims -- she claims that effectively donald trump is an agent of the russians, that wikileaks is an agent of the russians. so what do we have here? we have -- let's look at it objectively. we have the ruling party's preferred successor running
10:08 pm
around calling the opposition leader, in fact multiple opposition leaders and the critical press foreign agents. >> by the way, isn't that the very -- >> a terrible climate to commit. >> let's concede, julian assange is a controversial guy and a lot of people have very strong opinions about him. all right. so let's put that aside for now. what assange has done is he has exposed to america that we have a major cyber security problem. obama could have fixed this eight years ago. it is a problem that president obama has done nothing to fix. and in the past couple of years alone, well, government agencies like the office of personnel management, the irs, the department of defense, the state department, the white house, have all been hacked and the list goes on and on. where was the outrage from obama and the left on that? it wasn't much, and now they're up in arms over allegations of hacking because they lost an
10:09 pm
election. so they want to delegitimize the guy that won. let's keep in mind while democrats fire up their fake moral outrage machine, well, what are we going to do about it now. here with reaction fox news contributor john bolton. good to see you. there's no new information. we knew it all ahead of time. the fbi and the cia disagree. nobody showed any outrage, you know. wikileaks goes back ten years. >> yeah. >> they haven't done anything to fix cyber -- he hacked into nasa and the dod when he was 16 years old. >> yeah, look, the sbredirector national intelligence james clapper said early in october he assessed it was the russians that hacked into the dnc a month before the election. it is one of the quickest consensus to form in the community. when you have obama saying let's have a report before i leave office, it makes me nervous. given eight years of
10:10 pm
politization of the intelligence community by the obama administration. >> do you remember when the cia -- i want to make a distinction. i love our intelligence officials, the guys on the ground. they risk their lives for their country and i love them. but other officials at the cia, they did alter officially the talking points for benghazi. they bought into a narrative. they never talked to the guys on the ground in benghazi, and they did alter the talking points and buy into the false narrative that it was spontaneous as if people had rpgs and mortars in their back pocket and decided upon tainously to pull them out. >> i can't emphasize enough how shocked i was to hear the cia was writing talking points for members of congress on this issue to begin with. one thing to supply the information. intelligence is not a block of granite. there are facts and then there's analysis, which is open to interpretation by anybody involved in it. my concern here is that when you have this kind of controversial
10:11 pm
subject, the risk of positi politization is high. let's be clear, whether it was russia or china or whoever it was who hacked into the dnc, it followed years of hacking into the government, private sector with no response effectively by the united states. they thought they could get away with it. >> in other words this is selective moral outrage in your opinion? >> yeah. this is the last event that happens to fit into a narrative about hillary clinton's defeat. where was all of the outrage when china, for example, took hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of personnel records from the federal government and lifted them and sent them to beijing? this is the sort of thing, it is no wonder people thought they could get away with it because the obama administration had down played the damage being done four years. >> i had people abusing me because i changed my position on julian assange in this way. i said, he's done america a favor. he's exposed that we have no cyber security. that gives us a chance to fix
10:12 pm
it. and he also exposed how corrupt government is. i know you have not been a fan of his, but shouldn't we have learned ten years ago to fix it? >> well, unfortunately, bradley manning and edward snowdeny also exposed problems. we have problems with security if these guys can take the material they did out there. so i think as we look at no did this, i think it is very important that we do have an open discussion. >> right. i want it fixed. >> to me, the reason i raised the possibility of a false flag operation, that it was people planting evidence to point their finger at russia is that maybe somebody else has stakes here. if i could say, i have not believed and never said it was the obama administration that did that. i think it was potentially another foreign government. nobody has explained why they're so certain it is the russians. >> john bolton, i hope you end up serving in the trump administration. i think you would be a real asset to the country. i won't ask you if you are involved. nobody gives me a straight answer anyway. >> and i wouldn't have either.
10:13 pm
but thank you very much. >> coming up, former speaker of the house newt gingrich is here to react to the, quote, russian hacking hysteria. also tonight -- he's in charge of an oil company that's pretty much doubled the size of its next nearest competitor. it's been a company that's been unbelievably managed. >> that was president-elect donald trump talking about exxon mobil ceo rex tillerson. sources tell fox news that president-elect trump is expected to maybe pick him for secretary of state. there are missed messages coming out. on friday, former mayor rudy giuliani pulled his name out of any consideration for a cabinet post. he will tell us why, and much more straight ahead. ♪

10:15 pm
10:16 pm
♪ live from america's newes headquarters. president-elect donald trump tweeting tonight he will announce his pick for secretary of state tomorrow morning. two transition sources have told fox news he plans to nominate exxoonmobil ceo rex tillerson as the country's top diplomat. but asked on fox news sunday why tillerson would make sense as chief diplomat, president-elect trump said, quote, he's a world class player and he does massive deals for the company, not for himself but for the skp. a suspect is behind bars following the shooting of two officers following a traffic stop. they approached the driver after noticing his vehicle was reported stolen. the shooting happened in a busy area with restaurants and hotels, but no bystanders kwr hit. the two officers were rushed to hospital with non-threatening injuries. i'm kelly wright. back to "hannity."
10:17 pm
welcome back to "hannity." joining us with more reaction to the liberal hypocrisy over hacking is the author of "treason, former speaker of the house, nk. you are coming out with a brand-new book on trump, right? >> yeah, we have a new book that's an electronic book on electing trump. i am giving a speech at heritage on the principles of trumpism and how dramatic a change can it will be for america. so very exciting time for us. this is, by the way, about as stupid as anything i have seen the left try. >> i tried to say that but you said it better. >> think about it. barack obama is now saying that his administration was so incompetent that they stood around sucking their thumb while the russians snuck in and hacked into an american election because of the utter incompetence of the obama defense system. now, i don't know why one would make that case. i happen to believe obama's
10:18 pm
amazingly incompetent about national security, but he's basically making the case that they now have to investigate whether or not the russians hacked in despite the obama national security system. and we're now supposed to believe the guys who failed, who are going to tell us why they failed because it was the russians who did it because they were too stupid to protect the system. this whole thing will go down, it will be a parody, it would be a comedy if it was a movie. >> if trump did this it would be labeled what it is, a conspiracy theory. think about this. so we had before the election project veritas exposing democratic officials wanting to incite violence to impact an election. we also had, of course, media exposed colluding with the clintons to impact an election and helping her cheat going into town halls and debates and ask questions of the dnc that they could bury trump with. i'm thinking nobody cared about any of that hacking or 99%
10:19 pm
certainty that foreign intelligence agencies got into hillary's e-mail server, that didn't bother anybody either. what is your reaction to the hypocrisy? you're laughing. >> i have a whole new theory. no, here is my new theory, that they're right. the kgb did it even though they've been gone for 20 years. the kgb came and convinced hillary to set up a truly stupid secret server. they then convinced hillary to eliminate 33,000 e-mails, and then they convinced hillary to lie about the rest. so it is not hillary's fault and it is not bill's fault, it is not the democrats fault. in fact, it is a secret russian agent who undermined hillary's ability to do anything competent, but she would have been a great president except for the fact that this russian kept manipulating her. >> okay. >> how do you -- how do these people live with this stuff? >> there is zero, understand, since before the election, zero new evidence, not one bit, not
10:20 pm
one iota. at the end of the day, the cia, the fbi disagree on the interpretation. the only thing that shifted is they took the same information they had way before the election and they put a new spin on it to politicize it. the media is falling all over themselves when they didn't care about hillary's e-mail or their collusion. >> this is the perfect example of what i'm starting to call the propaganda media rather than the news media. the propaganda media tells you what they need to tell you for their -- so rather than covering president -- i mean look how well trump was received at the army/navy game. >> it was great. >> look at the out pouring of affection and enthusiasm. if you were the propaganda media, that drives you crazy and you have to grab something to try to smear him so they do. >> well, i don't know what to make of all of this except that to me it is about delegitimizing
10:21 pm
trump. now, when i said a while back, i made the statement that julian assange has done american two favors. he has exposed beyond any doubt we don't have any working cyber security, and that gives us an opportunity to fix it. number two, he exposed just how deeply, fundamentally corrupt not only the dnc is but also america's news media, and he's done us a favor, probably inadvertently but it's been a favor. and they've done nothing in all of that time to fix it. so if there was any influence, who would get the blame? i would argue obama since wikileaks now has been out there ten years. >> look, i don't -- let's be really clear. i don't believe that the russians carried pennsylvania, i think donald trump did. i don't think the russians carries wisconsin, donald trump did. i don't think the russians carried michigan, donald trump did. the problem the left has is they cannot come to grips with the reality that the american people
10:22 pm
are turning against them, that the american people defeated them and, frankly, if the election were held today the margin would be even bigger because people have now begun to realize donald trump is not in any way the kind can of things that the "new york times" and "the washington post" said he was. >> he's not the caricature they tried to paint leading up to the election. but the country, we really do need to wrap our arms around cyber security, and probably the person -- >> absolutely. >> -- that put us in most jeopardy was hillary. and when there's a 99% chance that at least five foreign intelligence agencies hacked into her top secret, special access programs on her server that was in a mom-and-pop shop in a bathroom closet, you know, maybe they should have shown a little concern about that, too, but they didn't. >> well, look, i mean that's the tragedy of this whole thing. what it does is it trivializes the seriousness. there were really serious
10:23 pm
security problems. they would normally be, i think, jail time for things on this scale, and only her political nature has saved her from going to jail. >> that might change. we have a new -- >> really need to confront how serious it was. >> look, it is not donald trump's call. i know he said he doesn't want to bring any pain to the clintons, but won't that be the decision of the justice department? >> sure. >> our incoming attorney general? it won't be donald trump's decision, will it? >> absolutely, no. and the new adecide to appoint t counsel, so there's no question of any kind of political agenda. but i think it is ironic that for the "new york times" and "the washington post," they can't cover the things that are real so they have to make up junk in order to hide behind the noise. >> well said. all right, mr. speaker, good to see you. thank you for being with us. coming up next tonight on this busy news night on "hannity." >> he's in charge of an oil company that's pretty much
10:24 pm
double the size of its next nearest competitor. it's been a company that's been under believably managed. >> sources telling fox news that president-elect trump will pick the ceo of exxoonmobil, rex tiller son, to be his secretary of state. we will get reaction from normer new york city mayor rudy giuliani. you might recall last week he took his name out of consideration for a cabinet spot. he did this on friday. so what does he think of trump's potential pick? also tonight -- >> we're talking about a candidate who lost in a historic way in terms of the popular vote but clearly won in the electoral college. is this something of a national emergency? >> cnn, a state of national emergency in terms of being unhinged with their biassed coverage. we'll ask monica crowley and doug schoen come canning up straight ahead. want longer lasting heartburn relief?
10:25 pm

10:26 pm
♪ welcome back to "hannity." so sources have confirmed to fox news that president-elect trump will nominate exxoonmobil ceo rex tillerson to be his secretary of state.
10:27 pm
now while a formal announcement is expected later this week, trump had this to say about tiller son during his interview on "fox news sunday." take a look. he's much more than a business executive. i mean he's a world class player. he's in charge of i guess the largest company in the world. he's in charge of an oil company that's pretty much double the size of his next nearest competitor. it's been a company that's been unbelievably managed, and to me a great advantage is he knows many of the players and he knows them well. he does massive deals in russia, he does massive deals for the company, not for himself, for the company. >> joining us now is former new york city mayor rudy giuliani. mr. mayor, good to see you. >> good to see you. >> okay. your name was bantered about for a long time, no decision was coming and, what, about a week and a half ago in reality it wasn't announced until last week, you pulled your name out of consideration. >> yeah, i think it was the 28th or 29th of november i gave the president-elect a letter saying that i didn't want to be
10:28 pm
considered for a federal appointment. it seemed to me he had a number of candidates, they were all very, very qualified. any one of them could have done the job really, really well. john bolton was on the list at that point, and i guess john was probably my favorite. >> i think you and john together would have been a great team, that's my opinion. >> and i have a lot of obligations in my own private law practice, private consulting firm, that i just had to make a decision. >> yeah. >> that i just couldn't wait around, you know, two or three weeks. >> he talked about it with him at some point? >> i did, when it was a competing decisions between a number of different people. i could see it was going to be a hard decision for him. i thought it would make it easier for him by just pulling out. my objective in joining his campaign, and you know this because we talked about it, was for america. now, i may be romanticizing it but i believe helping to save america from becoming socialist
10:29 pm
and becoming a second rate or -- >> no, america is in a precipitous decline, horrible. >> a power that was no greater than anyone else. i wanted an ascendant american. i wanted america that is exceptional, i wanted america that is the leader of the world. and that's why i supported donald trump. the only reason. i didn't want a job. i love what i do, i love my law firm, i love my consulting firm. going to poland for -- >> you're going to make more money doing what you do. >> i'm going to poland for two or three days this week. i just got the award from the colombian government, clon bean embassy by reducing crime by 48%. >> the media went out, the fact you have a business -- let's use colombia. you were hired as a consultant based on your success in new york. >> by the defense ministry of colombia. >> right, to lower crime. >> my firm was paid to lower crime in medellin, and crime is down by 48% in medellin.
10:30 pm
i suspended it when i was going to run for possible secretary of state. >> are you going to put your name under consideration. >> but now we'll go back and we will do callis and we'll do bogota and get paid for it, paid four our services. i don't lobby. i don't use influence. i do hard work, sometimes dangerous work. we were in qatar -- >> medellin is bad, it is tough. so had qatar. >> what about guatemala where i have done work and el salvador. >> with the guerillas and the fighting. >> the cartel has a contract out to slit my throat for the work i did in colombia, which is one of the reasons i got the award. i was in qatar, and they made it a big deal. i was in qatar when qatar had 35,000 american troops in qatar and the government wanted the city to be made safer for, among other reasons, protection of our troops. >> what do you think of
10:31 pm
tillerson? >> i think he obviously has worldwide experience. i think his knowledge of russia will be enormously valuable to the president-elect. i can't speak about him. i don't know him. >> you don't know him? >> i know donald trump and i know he makes excellent choices. i think he's made some remarkable choices in the cabinet, and i'm part of the transition team and i can tell you the transition team is way ahead of any other administration in history. >> where are you -- >> and vice president pence gets a lot of credit. >> he is solid as a rock. >> he runs it well. >> what do you make of, oh, the russians hacked and tried to influence the election when nobody cared -- well, first of all the cia and fbi disagree, as we've been discussing. on second thought, nobody cared about hillary and the fact that 99% certainty that five intelligence agencies -- >> i think it has been politicized way beyond it should be. first of all, the investigation should be done quietly. it should be done by
10:32 pm
professionals. there shouldn't be this battle between the cia and the -- >> embarrassing, isn't it? >> -- and the fbi over it. i do cyber security for a living, so i have a pretty good sense of -- look, they can hack anything they want if they want to hack it. >> that means we need to fix it. >> but i don't know -- but also i've seen the statements that have come out of the government that there is no indication that it affected the election in any way. >> there's no new information. >> in any way possible. nor do i see a way in which they could really have had a materially affect on the states that turned out to be the states that were the crucial states. so i think in terms of the election results, this sounds like more of a political issue. for talking about hacking as a general issue, we sure as heck have to catch up. i mean the obama administration has left us a disaster. look at the opm hack where background checks, fbi background checks were taken.
10:33 pm
>> released, yeah. >> this is what i'm going to devote most of the rest of my life to, which is to try to figure out a much better solution to hacking. i do it all over the world and i work a lot with israel, and in israel they have a special place in el elam where they do research on how to defend against hacking and they're the best, the very best. >> a friend of mine from israel has a different phone number every day with encryption and all sorts of technology that we should have here. >> you should see the technologies, they're great. and the thing is to then do that and have your phone number changed, but have it done automatically so you never -- your phone number never changes but it really changes. it sounds strange but it can be done. >> mr. mayor, we're going to have you on i'm sure a lot throughout -- they're going to be brutal with trump. they want to take him out. >> i have never -- zblif 'been sayi'been -- >> i've been saying it, nobody
10:34 pm
is listening. >> it is going to get worse. >> we never saw anything like we saw in the election, why are we surprised? >> i'm not. good to see you. up next tonight on this busy news night on "hannity." >> we're talking about a candidate who lost in historic way in terms of the popular vote but clearly won in the electoral college. is this something of a national emergency? >> cnn with their alt radical left insanity and biassed anti-trump coverage. check in with monica crowley and doug schoen, they're next. then i go one-on-one with geraldo about the cries in the country, straight ahead. accepta higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat country, straight ahead. r in th country, straight ahead. i in th country, straight ahead. s in th country, straight ahead. i in th country, straight ahead. s in th country, straight ahead.

and welcome back to "hannity." so many liberals in the mainstream alt-left media continue to try to discredit president-elect donald trump in his victory. yesterday cnn's pipsqueak brian stelter raised this question about possible russian interference. watch this. here is something i've been asking myself. julia, we're talking about a candidate who has lost in an
10:40 pm
historic way in terms of the popular vote, but clearly won in the electoral college. is this something of a national emergency? >> sure. >> russian interference in the election, is this a crisis, a national emergency? >> a keith observerman want to be. while those at cnn continue to question november's free election results, the liberals at the "new york times" are welcoming a new reporter to their team, glen thrush. you might remember he was the guy, the former politico so-called journalist outed by wikileaks for sending the clinton campaign articles for approval before they're published. here with reactions fox news contributors doug schoen, monica crowley. it is a perfect marriage. you have the "new york times" who gave approval to hillary, glen thrush did, perfect marriage. >> we have known that the ee let left win media has been biassed for decades, sean, but what made this election cycle so different was they ratcheted up to another
10:41 pm
level. they opposed donald trump ideologically and personally. not only do they hate him because he's not one of them, an elitist, but they fear him because what he has promised and what we've seen in terms of his cabinet picks is that donald trump is promising and is going to deliver a complete reordering of the existing system. he is going to come in and smash the way things are done, not just diplomatically, not just economically and politically and culturally but with the press as well. not only do they oppose him ideologically but they're terrified he will strip their power away. >> let me play some of the comedians, those with left wing opinions, doug, that none saw this coming. you were the only democrat iaid shot to win and hillary better take it seriously. they didn't listen to you. these people were so arrogant they thought they had it figured out. >> donald trump has been saying he will run for president as a republican, which is surprising since i assumed he was running as a joke. >> do it!
10:42 pm
do it. look at me. do it. i will personally write you a campaign check now on behalf of this country which does not want you to be president by wu badly wants you to run. >> which republican candidate has the best chance of winning the general election? >> of the declared ones right now, donald trump. >> man, it's got some momentum and we better be ready for the fact that he might be leading the republican ticket. >> i know you don't believe that, but i want to go on. >> president obama will be down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the united states, exclamation point,@realdonaldtrump. well, @realdonaldtrump, at least i will go down as a president. and it goes on. but now he's the president-elect. now they're trying to take away
10:43 pm
