my book you settle for more is inspiring a lot of folks. you could be one of sdmem should be read by every person. dhek out and see you for our last hour together. cleared together. canned can clearspeak out tonig p intelligence officials say that russian officials did not influe >> they did not change any talleys or any of that sort. laura ingraham is here with that reaction. >> we are getting rid of obamacare. make america sick again. they all weigh in. >> and more of our exclusive interview with julian assange. and all of that and senator ted
cruz all here tonight. "hannity" starts right here. >> sean: america's top intelligence america goes to it capitol hill and testified russian hacking did not influence the election. this is information i am about to give you. you will not here it in the corrupt liberal media. i hope senator mccain and senator graham is paying attention tonight. the director of national intelligence james clapper appeared before the senate armed services committee and asked about a democratic talking point, the claim that russian hacking handed the election to donald trump. >> they did not change vote talleys or anything of that sort. we have no way of gauging the
impact that certainly intelligence community can't gauge the impact of the choices that the electorate made. there is no way to gauge that. whether or not that constitutes a act of war is a very heavy policy call that i don't believe the intelligence community should make. is certainly -- d carry in my view, great gravity >> sean: everything that you are hearing from the president, hillary clinton and her campaign and the democratic party about hacking determining the outcome of this election is not true. what is true, the russian's hack in the voting machine. wikilet the liberal news media is? yes, it did.
racist, homophobic, sexist comments? yeah, that was revealed. the dnc tried to discredit bernie sanders and rig the primary for hillary clinton? yeah, that was revealed too. this isn't about julian assange, this is another excuse by the democrats as to why hillary clinton lost the election in an attempt to be legitimized -- delegitimize donald trump and his victory. when julian assange was 16 years old, he hacked into nasa. we have known about wiki links for ten years. this group has been showing classified information, the united states america has major cyber security problems. tonight, we are going to play more of our exclusive interview with julian assange why he explains what he does. and why he does. >> people can do things with
power. they can do very bad things with power. if they are incompetent, they can do dangerous things. >> sean: we're going to play the rest of that exchange later. cybersecurity needs to be beefed up very quickly. why? we can't have russia, north korea, china, iran, hacking into our government systems. so what is the obama administration done in the past eight years to stop this? let's take a look at all the government agencies. most of you do not know this, it's not being reported by the media but let's look at the government agencies that have been hacked into since president obama took office. since 2009, look at this. hackers have attacked the u.s. electrical grid. they've attacked the pentagon, fighter projects. nasa, the department of energy, the federal connection networks, even the u.s. postal service.
the national oceanic and atmospheric administration. look at this. the white house has been hacked since obama has been president. the state department has been hacked. the department of defense has been hacked. and at the office of personnel management, have been hacked. president obama and john mccain and the democrats and lindsey graham, if they were all serious about hacking, would they have not done something about this while all of this has been happening? did you even hear about this before? let's take for example, china. they hacked the office of personal management. they got sensitive information on over 21 million people in america and that information means those people's information was compromised. and then the cia at the time, it was so serious that they removed agency officers that were stationed in china as a precautionary measure. but the president never spoke about it publicly. not one time. no diplomats were removed,
sanctions. edward snowden was leaking all kinds of classified information. look at all the sensitive information that was exposed by wikileaks in years prior. i have democrats, john mccain, lindsey graham, in all this time, have they done anything? have they done anything to stop stuff like this that we put on the screen from happening? no, they haven't done anything. so let me put this all into perspective. there is a big difference between a political party being hacked and sensitive u.s. government information that is being stolen, that exposes secrets, and potentially is putting american lives at risk. the only thing the dnc and the podesta leaks exposed was the truth about the democrats being corrupt. it confirmed everything that many of us already suspected. so here is my message to the sore loser left. you can complain all you want
about this but the fact is, this has been going on for eight years and even before that. and a president obama, john mccain, and lindsey graham, did nothing about it. so with hillary clinton and the democrats, if they want to complain and want to blame people. maybe they should blame barack obama. i don't think the democrats are being sincere. i think what they are trying to do is score cheap political points. listen to what democratic senator said at today's hearing. >> the notion that the elected leader of this country will put julian assange on a pedestal compared to the men and women of the intelligence community and the military, that is so deeply embedded in the community, i think it should bring about the human cry, whether you are republican or democrat, they are should be howells and mark my words, if the roles were reversed, there would be howls from the republican side.
>> sean: of course president-elect trump saw this coming and he tweeted... it is for the people to make up their own minds as to the truth, the media lies to look like it would be against intelligence when in fact i am a big fan. mr. trump has every right to be skeptical about what has been coming out about the election hs hearing proves that donald trump was right to push back against e left's untrue claims. just to remind you viewers of what wikileaks did in fact revealed during the 2016 election, we are going to put up on the screen again. full screen, on the side of your screen so you can be reminded of what we did learn from wikileaks as his eight year. has been doing nothing to stop cyber attacks. going on. fox news contributor,
laura ingraham, the amazing thing about this, we've known about this. every government agency has been hacked. not a peep out of obama. nothing to fix the problem. john mccain being all sick timoney is, lindsey graham all sink them on us you've known about every agency being hacked. why didn't they do anything the then? >> it was a very inconvenient truth as you pointed out in your monologue, the for the last eight years plus, the united states has been exceedingly vulnerable to cyber attacks from a variety of sources. some states sponsored, some not. some are attacks by hackers having a joyride through the internet. but the bottom line is, both democrats and republicans do agree that we need an entire revamp and trump is going to do that, i believe.
our approach to cyber security and that really wants as many senators tried to point out today, that was supposed to be the focus of the hearings today. that russia you know, took up a lot of it. but the focus is supposed to be what are we going to do about the future of our cyber cybersy efforts. what has been done thus far. and what can we do to stop it. as far as i heard from a lot of the witness testimony, the government testimony, they are still trying to play catch up on a lot of this stuff. china took 2,020,000,000 personnel files. including mine. >> sean: i'd like a copy of laura's files please. >> it's so exciting. but they have all this on everybody. some liberals are pointing out, well, china didn't use this information. i think we can answer, will how
do we know? it can be used as in the future. it might be held in a van for the future. you're right, they didn't take any of this seriously what was happening from other state sponsors it was basically admitted today that there's no sense that this affected the outcome of the election. it was russia perhaps involved through layers of other hacking helpers? apparently the report was delivered to the president today. a declassified version will be released to the public. donald trump will get his tomorrow. he'll get his briefing tomorrow. >> sean: let's compare. i'll just give wikileaks leaks up to 2012. they had all these years to fix it. for example, operating procedures for camp delta, gitmo, they released the classified videos of a series of attacks in baghdad. two reporters were killed. the war logs were released, diplomatic cables were released.
wikileaks released the gitmo files. the syria files. and then four years later, the dnc files. nobody cared about that. why do they care about the dnc which is not even a government agency? >> obviously the broader effort here is to cast dispersions on villages me of legitimacy of his victory. they will go with the story for as long as they can keep it alive. and through other means and efforts by the left over the next four years. this is not going to stop with this story. i don't have any view about whether the russians were involved. who knows. the intelligence agencies -- >> sean: i don't know either. why don't they show us the evidence? congress has been requesting evidence. they won't even go to the hearing with it. julian assange is adamant about it. saying they know.
>> they were very light on any evidence backing up their claim that russia, the dni is saying, sean, will be have to be very careful about releasing messages and sources. we are going to declassify as much as we can but we have to be careful because of the sense of nature of all this. >> sean: where was the urgency when nasa was hacked, the state department, the white house? >> you nailed it, though. that was embarrassing to the democrats. now, they think is embarrassing to trump. or embarrassing to his oregon, sliding his victory. >> sean: this is all political political. should they have fixed cybersecurity eight years ago? >> even the way that hillary went about restoring her emails. if this was so important that people not use private emails, email servers, then why didn't they move to seize that computer
early on with hillary? if this is really a serious issue, they could've done a lot more in the beginning of that investigation. but again, it was inconvenient for the democrats. i have no doubt that we have other countries who are adversaries who want to muck around in our system. >> sean: even russia, i believe. i am willing to pay the chinese huge amounts of money to get your files. >> it's is probably pretty bor. it is my phone numbers, my passwords, just pranks i did in college. >> sean: that became a big issue, if you run for office. laura, good to see you. happy new year by the way. up next, right here on hannity. >> we will repeal the disaster known as obamacare. and create new health care, all sorts of reform, that work for
you and your family. >> sean: president-elect donald trump has vowed to replace and repeal obamacare. how exactly is he going to do that? he calls out chuck schumer for getting in the way. senator ted at godaddy, our goal is to make you look awesome online. let's chat in football terms. this is the goal post. the end zone. the goal of every team. we know you have goals. like getting exposure for your idea or business.
down to 55. september job figureses will be the last big employment report in obama's term. employers add 173000 jobs last month and continue job gains that is the longest on record. still the economist predict the rate will rise to 5.7 percent. i am robert gray, now ban ta hannity. canned can clear missile. now, back to h
keep your doctor, keep your plan, it's time for republicans and democrats to get together and come up with a health care plan that really with a health care plan that really works. it is a good thing he's not backing down because the numbers are grichlt the increase for health care health care costs for employer-sponsored benefits since 2008, obama's election, is now $5,462. that is a 43% increase. as we told you last night, this year obamacare premiums increase by on average. well, that's going to spike by 43.6%. deductibles for the same group, they are skyrocketing by 22.9%. if you live in arizona, it's a 116% increase this year alone. former obama economic advisor
austan goolsbee, is with us. this is a promise republicans made. if you are paying over $5,500 more a year, you're going to see increases on average of 30% or higher. how do you justify that based on the plan that was supposed to keep your doctor, keep your plan and save $2500 per year? >> this is an example of government failure. you can spend trillions of dollars, so somebody get some level of insurance that they didn't have before. but it's just not worth it to society. so they can pay more. the people who such high deductibles that insurance is worthless to begin with. if republicans repeal it, they have to do it. i would say republicans need to replace it in 2017.
if they repeal it and then years go by before they replace -- >> sean: paul ryan said this year -- they have different plans, donald trump talked to me about it. affordability, it also includes bringing it job to job, buying across state lines. austan goolsbee, you are pretty and honest guy. keep your doctor, keep your plan, save on average $2500 a year. why do i know you so well that you are going to say "well, even though it went up $5500 a family, it still is a savings." why do i expect that to come out of your wonderful liberal mouth of yours? >> they had an article in which on your quote, saying very nice
things about me, you're going to be very upset when they read it. >> sean: wrong but i love you. >> what did not observe, and virtually for donald trump, he is going to have to deal with the same problem obama has deal. those prices that are up 40% in the last eight years, you failed to mention that that's the slowest rate of increase of health care prices in the last half-century. and now with donald trump, she is about to own everything everyone hates. >> sean: that's the democratic talking point. michael -- >> i don't even know where this man is coming from. there is what 18 million people joint obamacare? of course after spending
$2.000000000000 in some canadian company is opposed to using our tech geniuses. let me tell you the difference, donald trump is a gentleman who knows how to get things done. it's going to be like trump. he went ahead and it was a sailing item for a long time. he fixed it. he knows what to do. it's ahead of schedule and it's an absolute success. he's going to do the same sort of things for this country, exactly the way he did for his trump organization. >> sean: ari fleischer, i always like competition. if you buy a catastrophic plan with a medium deductible and you are young and you have a heart attack or god for big cancer or a bad accident, you will be covered. but you don't need the care that an elderly person would and they are also being covered on the back end.
>> and you had all kinds of other benefits that were mandatory that people didn't need that was part of their premiums, which is why it's so expensive and there deductibles were so high. it was all moving in the direction of government control. much more free market. and what i think is so needed from an outsiders perspective is that we need things that work, not things that don't. if you have a government run it, it won't work. the private sector and deliver a quality product? that's what the private leader can do. >> sean: ari has to leave, ari, you are my friend. give my best to your daughter. what was possibly said that was
nice about you? was i drinking? was it new year's eve? >> you said that it was one of your favorites. >> sean: it used to believe in free market more. >> it says i'm a great american, that football i got that you signed. >> sean: it is worth a fortune. the reality. look. you've got to understand, there's not one economic statistic you could point to that says we are better off. the national debt. >> i can give you one. the longest string of private sector job growth in the history of united states. >> sean: you trap laid out you can make anything look good.
>> donald trump is the world's greatest dealmaker. he's gonna come in with promises about obamacare, he's going to be destructive, he's going to bring in competition, competition is going to lower for everybody. you're not going to see these prices. >> sean: i'm i want that to be true. >> everybody wants to see america succeed. >> my point is this. donald trump, you remember, sean, he came on the show during your campaign. you asked him what are you going to replace obamacare with. and his response was something fabulous. >> why are you expecting him to do this now? he is going to do this when he takes office. they are working on it. you don't even want to give the man a chance. >> i want to give him a chance. >> you don't want to give him a chance. >> sean: all right, good to see you both. he promised to drain the swamp
before i had the shooting, burning of diabetic nerve pain, these feet kicked off a lot of high school games... built a life for my family... and liked to help others in need. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda-approved to treat this pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions
or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and it's great to help others get back on their feet. ask your doctor about lyrica and learn about our $25 copay offer at lyrica.com. >> sean: welcome back to hannity, one of his campaign promises was for trump to drain the swamp in washington earlier this week, presidential candidate senator ted cruz said,
"d.c. is broken. the american people resoundingly agree on election day and president-elect trump has committed to putting government back to work for the american people. it's well past time to pick pun end." texas senator ted cruz. always good to see you. welcome back, sir. >> great to be with you. happy new year. >> sean: happy new year to you too. i've always sell side for term ideas, it's a bad idea whose time has come. it really would i think put politicians on track to do not what is in their best interest but to serve the people. which is not been happening. in recent years and i think you would agree, republican, democrat, it's gotten pretty bad. >> sean, that's exactly right. the american people overwhelmingly support term limits.
that's in a bipartisan basis. and the reason is simple. to recognize washington is broke, it's far too easy for people to come to washington and become career politicians and become corrupted by the system. they stared there forever. when the framers designed the constitution, they designed legislators. they would leave their job for a period of time. we don't have that arrangement today. and so it's my hope that one of the first things we will see is take up a constitutional amendment providing term limits, to two terms for senators, three terms for senators of the house. it's one of the most effective ways to end the corruption in washingtonhe swamp. >> sean: you are one of just the few people that was willing to use your constitutional authority, the power of the
first, as it relates to obamacare. it's now an item one agenda for the trumpet administration. and you actually said yesterday that i'm really impressed with trump. politics is a blood sport, it was very contentious at some point, but you did keep your promise. you came around and use supported him and probably you more than any candidate had the most contentious exchanges with him. others didn't. that's an important aspect to remember. do you feel that he can get these things done where the republicans were not willing to fight in the past? >> i certainly hope so. it was a vigorous primary but he won the primary. he won the general election. i was happy to campaign it, supporting. we went on the road with them. did everything we could to turn out conservatives. and we saw on election day, it was an incredible mandate for change. it was the american people
saying enough is enough. they are fed up and sean, i've got to tell you, i am really optimistic right now. i'm excited. we've been given an historic opportunity. we've been given control of the white house, x-ray executive branch and what i think it's critical now as we deliver. we do what we promise. and i've been very, very encouraged by the cabinet appointments that trump has put forward. these are great conservatives, an all-star team. i just met with general matus, willing to stand up to islamic terrorism. not bound by the political correctness, the blindness of the last eight years. talk about something we desperately need. >> sean: even i know you guys are very adversarial during the primary, i believe that you
could be a very powerful team. especially on obamacare. defeating radical islam, security, replacing obamacare. the supreme court which i thought was the number one issue in this campaign. i think this could be a powerful alliance but maybe no one predicted it at the time. one thing else that i am really thankful that you came out and said, congress was cut, the u.n., the disgraceful anti-israeli resolution that the obama administration could have vetoed. and they didn't. and the even colluded on. >> that's exactly right. if you look at the last several weeks, but the obama administration has done, it's been shameful. their true colors are coming ou out. on the way out, they struck out at israel in a way that is hateful and profoundly damaging. the u.n. resolution that passed with barack obama and john
kerry's active acquiescence is not their encouragement, is profoundly anti-israel. it is absurd. it actually declares much of israel to be illegal and illegitimate. it declares the temple mount, the holiest place in jerusalem for to be not legitimate or part of israel. it declares the western wall, where all over the world go to pray, to not be legally and not part of israel. for decades, the united states has stood as an ally against anti-semitism and i think bronc bronco obama did this to secure his legacy. i think history is going to record as barack obama and john kerry as relentless enemies of israel. >> sean: we talk about influencing elections. this president spent taxpayer money from the state department to put his political operatives
to help defeat prime minister netanyahu. >> that's the antithesis of this resolution. with netanyahu, i spoke with him a little over a week ago and i shared with him despite this disgraceful action in the u.n., the american people stand unshakably with the people of israel. and i am joining with my colleague lindsay graham, we disagree with a lot of things but we are on the same page for this. >> sean: he's not exactly my favorite center by the way. you are in the butter category. good to see you. >> we are going to cut off funding to the u.n. unless they reverse its resolution. >> sean: i would love to see him support that, the president-elect. >> we are working very closely with his transition team. every day. it >> sean: that's really good news.
up next, tonight, here on "hannity" ." >> people can do things with power, they can do very bad things with power. if they are incompetent, it can be very dangerous. >> sean: more of my exclusive unmarried interview with julie n a sound. for african-americans charged for the brutal beating of a man with special needs, they yelled anti-donald trump and antiwhite slurs. that disturbing take and much more reaction you totaled your brand new car. nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement™, you'd get your whole car back. i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels.
>> sean: do you believe that their governments that regularly lie, propagandize, manipulate the minds of their citizens? >> yes. >> and you want to expose that truth to the people. >> no political agenda. it goes back to the story, why won't will the media do it? if i have information that hillary clinton is colluding with the media, that hillary clinton is benefiting -- >> why won't the media do it? you just answered the question. many in the united states felt that it was part of the same system, that hillary clinton was part of the same social strata, benefiting politically and socially and financially.
from that system that hillary clinton most represented. >> sean: let me ask this question, you are taking on the big, the mighty, the powerful. i don't sense a political agend agenda. you would've released those if they were donald trump emails. >> we released sarah palin's emails. we released norm coleman's information back in 2009. >> sean: so my question then is you really don't have an agenda except for her to tell e truth that with regularity, bureaucracy, government entitie entities, lie and prevent the people they represent from hearing the truth. a fair statement? >> yes. not only lie but act in a ubiquitous manner but do things that are harmful to the population inside the country and outcome of but also act in an incompetent manner.
they are full of incompetent people. the more incompetent because there is no proper oversight. you can't go this guy did a good job, this guy did a bad job. because you can't compare. >> sean: you are saying transparency will lead to competence. >> what they hate transparency. they loathe it. because they have to work harde harder. >> sean: let me ask this question. this is an evil world we live in. we live in a world where convert or die, kill in the name of allah, you're never going to be able to hold them accountable to that. >> wikileaks has secrets. that's a core area of competency that we have to keep information secret. investigating the mafia, the police have to keep their
investigations secret. all the time it takes them to get to trial. not forever. sometimes your doctor for example reveal something secret, or keep something secret. how much it encompasses and for how long it is encompassed. but there's a place for it. >> sean: you never set out to have a goal to influence the selection. that was not your goal, you are saying. >> and not one way or the other. did we set out to give the american people true information about the players that they were going to have to deal with? yes, of course. you know, we don't publish -- we are not in the business of publishing stuff about fluff.
we are in the business of publishing things about power. people can do very bad things with power, they can do incompetent things and dangerous things. they could do wicked things. we are interested in publishing information about power so those people have to deal with power, all of us, can go okay, i don't like that guy. i'm not going to deal with him. i'm not going to vote for him. or, that guy sounds all right. maybe i want a business relationship with him. maybe he should marry my sister. if you don't know what is happening in the world, with the powerful individuals, corporations and governments, you can't decide whether you're going to support them or not support them, get into some kind of relationship with them or not. as a result, immoral actors within those big corporations or states, prosper. if you have information coming
out about how people actually behave what's the result? the rest of society goes, i do want to deal with you. >> sean: a disgusting brutal assault was broadcasted on facebook live, the four attackers. they were african-american, they have now all been charged with hate crime. they tortured a man with special needs. michelle malkin is here with thr reaction. that i really did save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with geico. i should take a closer look at geico... geico has a long history of great savings and great service. over seventy-five years. wait. seventy-five years? that is great. speaking of great, check out these hot riffs. you like smash mouth? uh, yeah i have an early day tomorrow so... wait. almost there. goodnight, bruce. gotta tune the "a." (humming) take a closer look at geico. great savings. and a whole lot more. you may sometimes suffer from a dry mouth.
ok. now, there are many right ways to fill out this tax return. and the irs will accept them all. one of them gets you the most money back. isn't that the one you want? that's the one i want. that's the one you want. mmm... you touched all these. don't just get your taxes done, amy. get your taxes won.
a toilet. all while ranting about white people and president-elect donald trump. this ordeal lasted for hours and the attackers even broadcasted a portion of their brutal assault on facebook live. we've got to warn you that the video we are about to show you is extremely disturbing. watch this. >> leapt donald trump. [bleep] white people. >> [laughs] >> [bleep] this my friend. >> sean: fur michelle malkin, i don't even -- i understand kids and pranks. i was a bit of an incorrigible child myself. i don't understand the evil, the outright evil. they were literally taking this kids scalp with a knife, forcing
him and beating him. i don't understand this kind of evil i don't know where it comes from. how this evolves. what is your reaction to it? >> sean, i think that every parent in america particularly parents of special needs kids has to be outraged and disgusted by what was broadcast on facebook. the ways in which social media now is spreading this kind of violent poison is alarming. the atrocity, the brutality that occurred, what was depicted in this video is compounded by the callous reaction of so many people on the left and in the media. where some crimes are more equal than others. and where this agenda driven journalism has been exposed so nakedly, sean, the ways of which
the racial aspect of this crime has been covered up by so many leftists -- >> sean: yeah, they had a hard time reaching the fact that this was a racial hate crime. here's another part of the equation that we've got to talk about. we've dealt with this a little bit on the program last night. nearly 800 800 killed in chica. 4,000 shot this year. >> well, because chicago is the poster child of the violent and sick hellhole of progressivism. it lies squarely at the seat of the likes of rahm emanuel, the debit democratic daily machine and yes president obama and his wife themselves who come from chicago. i've talked to many times about the progressive climate of hate whether it is the hate that's been fermented by care and black lives matter and southern
poverty law center which gets to define what hate crimes are. and where they falsely accuse the right. it is always blame right people liberals ignore racism within their own ranks, they make it up when it doesn't exist. and they manufacture it for their own political gain. shane on them. >> sean: great point. michelle, we are really glad you're back on the show. congrats. coming up, we need your help. a very
go to facebook.com/seanhannity, @seanhannity on twitter. unfortunately, that is all the time we have. ♪ >> tucker: well, good evening, and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." for people in chicago face felony hate crime charges, in addition too many charges come after they allegedly kidnapped and tortured a mentally disabled man and broadcasted on facebook. video shows the attackers, who were black, yelling f donald trump and f white people. he joins us for an update. greg. what can you tell us? >> the superintendent today called at this video reprehensible and prosecutors called it a crime, filing those charges against the four suspect, they included height crime,
