tv   Hannity  FOX News  March 8, 2017 7:00pm-8:01pm PST

7:00 pm
ce investigated this and decided the lectures violated the american disabilities act, all lectures are being deleted, so now no one can access them. progress means hurting everyone equally, of course. "hannity" is next, have a great night. >> sean: newt gingrich, michelle malkin will join us tonight, and explosive new report raises very serious critical questions but u.s. government surveillance at trump tower where our commander-in-chief headquarters were located. these are questions that president barack obama needs to answer and that is tonight's opening monologue. she along with our colleague john solomon they had confirmed the existence of a present court warrant order, just weeks before
7:01 pm
the general election and to monitor trump tower in their computer server that was right inside there. the report finds the justification for the warrant was to examine the server that appeared to be communicated with a russian bank. officials told the news they quickly determined nothing nefarious what was happening or going on in there. i can tell you for my own experience, think about this. it from my communications during the campaign with the trump campaign, most of the staffers, 99% of them where are all connected to the trump organization. in other words, their emails. this is beyond a troubling, we need answers tonight. work trump campaign emails ever connected to the server? if so, where they collected as raw intelligence during the surveillance operation? the reason we ask this is because of what we saw happen to former national security advisor lieutenant general michael flynn appeared to remember news reports, a december call that he made to a russian or an ambassador was captured by what "the new york times" described as a routine wiretap of the
7:02 pm
russian diplomats phone? u.s. intelligence agencies, they do routinely monitor foreign officials, that's their job. protections known as minimization procedures have been put in place to ensure that american citizens are not caught up in surveillance. their identities and their rights are protected. this of course was not the case with general flynn appeared a transcript of the call was created, given to intelligence officials, who then leaked the details to the press which by the way is a felony according to the espionage act. we know from a "new york times" report in his final weeks in office that president obama revise the executive order 12333 which green lights wide spread sharing of broad data collected by american intelligence agencies across 17 government agencies. that's an additional 16 agencies, all of their employees can now gain access to
7:03 pm
top-secret intel that they never had access to before. we've been asking why did president obama wait until the last minute to weeks before he leaves to issue that order? it's an order that he did not apply to himself for eight years. since this order was signed, we've seen an explosion of leaks coming from intelligence agencies. look at your screen right there. take a good look at that britain given what's happened, it's time for president obama, and officials who oversaw this operation and the surveillance of the server as trump tower, they need to come clean, what do they know? what information was gathered? they need to assure you the american people that this was not spying on a political opposition party just weeks before an election. all of this raises very serious national security, ethical issues at a very high level, privacy issues we've never had before because crimes were likely committed here, certainly in the case of retired lieutenant general flynn,
7:04 pm
somebody committed a felony. all we're doing on this show as we are raising questions, looking for answers. we have reached out to present obama's spokesperson to see if they would respond to the questions we've been asking, heard back. also tonight, wikileaks has released thousands of documents and is making very serious allegations about caa spying at capabilities and techniques. according to wikileaks, u.s. spies are able to access some televisions, smartphones, iphones, and recorded sound, images, and even private messages on encrypted communication apps. wikileaks is also alleging that the cia has the ability to make it appear that its cyber activity was conducted by foreign governments say it like russia or hackers. the group explained it further in press release they said the caa's remote devices branch on bridge group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques stolen from
7:05 pm
malware produced in other states including the russian federatio federation. the caa cannot only increase its total number of attack types and misdirect the attribution by leaving behind these fingerprints of the groups the attack techniques are stolen from her. they can make it seem like it's the russians and it's them. the power and capabilities of american intelligence agencies are profound, and they are expensive. if all of this is true, what that means is the possibility that an operative working on behalf of the former president and other left-wing activists are trying to sabotage, delegitimize president's donald trump. why did the leaks happen as soon as obama left? until we get answers, we are going to keep asking these questions. here now is national security correspondent sara carter, do i have all that right? is that a good summary? >> it was a great summary, one a
7:06 pm
little change that just happened right before i came on your show. what was really interesting, john and i spoke to a very senior u.s. official, they clarified this. they said that there was a fisa warrant in october that was looking at the overall russian hacking investigation but that the fbi when they monitored the server as trump tower, it was located away from trump tower, it wasn't under the pfizer, they did normal strategic fbi investigations that didn't require the fisa. they went into the server but they did not use the fisa. in october. >> sean: spewing two instances f spying. >> two instances, this is completely new evidence. we all thought, everybody had reported that the server is inside trump tower, it was not located inside trump tower.
7:07 pm
>> sean: with the second one. seven trump tower? >> that's what we don't know it now that opens up a whole slew of questions. what we do know is this, the people who were investigating the server, they said the fbi did not look into emails, they did not listen to his phone calls and at that they no evidence, no evidence at all of any type of crime associated with trump business. >> sean: the news media in this country has repeated this narrative that the trump campaign were colluding with the russians to undermine the electoral process. you're saying that your reporting -- john solomon has worked for ap for 20 years? you both work together at the washington times, credible news
7:08 pm
organizations. you're saying they found no evidence at all whatsoever of any collusion between the campaign and the russians, true? >> absolutely true, they found no evidence of that. when we spoke to our sources who had direct access to this investigation, what was happening with the fbi, they didn't find evidence of collusion with lieutenant general mike flynn which is interesting because even when at those leaks came out and they were referring to the logan act, they thought this was part of the original investigation into russian hacking and now president trump. it was completely different, completely separate incidents. it was monitoring a russian -- >> sean: a felony in the espionage act as i understand it? >> as you know, the inspector
7:09 pm
general at the doj is now investigating the fbi and the department of justice. >> sean: i want to stay on this story but we only have limited time, too much information in your piece in your discovery. you have confirmed that the fbi found no evidence of any collusion whatsoever, nothing. number two, you have confirmed that they did get a fisa warrant in october, in the weeks leading up to the election, correct? and they also got somehow another warrant that allowed them to look into the trump campaign, we don't know what the nature of that was. >> we think it had to do with the banks in russia, they were looking at connections between president trump and the banks in russia alpha bank and seb bank, but were not 100% certain on that. what we don't know is who is connected to that fisa? what was it looking at? that is very highly classified, nobody wants to talk about that particular fisa right now.
7:10 pm
they said it did have to do with the russian hacking on a very broad level, but it didn't hone in directly on trump's what i was told. >> sean: the bottom line is it so far they found no collusion whatsoever which i think it's really important. we don't know the degree to which -- if they went to a server that might have been off-site but still took in the information from trump tower, then donald trump seemingly technically right. "the new york times" use the term wiretapping, and other backtracking. everyone in the media called him a liar when they sent out a tweet about president obama being involved will certainly it's his midden administration, i don't know how you call a wiretap, does it have to be a phone call? if the government is looking into one a server, can't you say they were tapping into it, because that's how i would define its prey to >> exactly. these are semantics. this is how people are using words. if there is a distention between a fisa and a wiretapping. they did tap, they were looking.
7:11 pm
>> sean: they were investigating the president of the weeks leading up to the election and there were two warrants, one fisa, one a nonfisa. did they find anything at all, anything at all? >> according to the sources that we spoke with they did not find any evidence that would lead to any kind of criminal prosecution of anyone on the trump team. >> sean: your told people that he is exonerated, the whole russian narrative that the media has been running with as a quick what you might they've known it for some time and they never told us? >> to some extent yes. >> sean: that's pretty scary. >> as it relates to who knew what when and where, the present minute president president made a clever
7:12 pm
statement, i didn't order the fisa statement, did he know? did ben rhodes no? did loretto lynch sign off on question marketed dan pfeiffer in the middle of a campaign, you have a sitting president with the power over the intelligence community looking into an opposition candidate in the weeks leading up to an election, does that seem like something that is appropriate, with their lies told to gather in a fisa, in june for example? >> there was no attempt to get one in june. that's what they said we don't know that for a fact yet. what we do know is in october, harry reid said there's going to be some explosive evidence. >> hillary clinton tweeted a week before the election. >> people were getting away for this and we believe people were briefed on this. this is when everything started. this is what these intelligence officials are telling us, this
7:13 pm
has become highly politicized from october all the way through january with the removal of general flynn and from the nsa, this has become so politicized that they are watching this in a horror and they wanted to set the record straight. >> sean: one last question, we did learn from wikileaks that the cia uses a stolen malware to give attribution to cyber attacks from other nations, and they leave the fingerprints, they can do the job and leave the fingerprints and say it looks like the russians didn't come as that's possible that that happened here? >> that something we have to investigate. i have no evidence of that. they are capable. and so are other intelligence agencies. a >> sean: thank you for your great work, were going to continue to follow this get these questions answered. are there a deep state obama holdover operatives working behind the scenes to try and undermine the trump administration? a former speaker of the house knew dumb i gingrich weighs in. later tonight. >> we ran on i repeal and replace plan, that's what this
7:14 pm
is that we ran on, now i am intent on making sure we fulfill our promises great >> sean: speaker ryan is correct, republicans promise for years, why so much infighting, why wasn't this resolved in four? also michelle malkin here, she will join us tonight as well americans - 83% try to eat healthy. yet up 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day 50+ a complete multi-vitamin with 100% daily value of more than 15 key nutrients. one a day 50+.
7:15 pm
7:16 pm

7:17 pm
7:18 pm
>> sean: will come back to "hannity," we've been questioning if there are deep state obama holdover operatives tried to delegitimize the commander-in-chief, were not going to stop asking questions. joining us now with reaction, author of "the new york times" bestseller treason, former speaker of the house, newt gingrich. you've known john sullivan, sara carter, legitimate reporter, they're saying and not only was a fisa court warrant approved, in spite of the investigation, zero proof of any collusion between trump and the russians. this has been the media narrative going on six, seven months at this point? what is your response? >> i think it's very likely that the deep states, the professional bureaucrats, the
7:19 pm
people who run the government on the day-to-day basis did it do things that were very opposed to donald trump. he was overwhelmingly opposed by the civil service. i think it's also likely that there was covering up is probably the wrong word but that they were willing to be sloppy and more aggressive and the whole thing was done to general flynn was totally outrageous. violates every civil liberty in the country, it involved will leaking which is a felony of secret information which was done in such a way as to hurt an american citizen even though when you look at it in detail, it had no meaning, it didn't matter. you'll notice "the washington post" of "the new york times" in their continuing war on the trump administration went way out of their way to try to smear and destroy internally general sessions. again, very similar kind of pattern we are seeing whether
7:20 pm
it's leaking or wiretapping, or collusion's between the deep state bureaucracy and the deep state media. >> sean: their reporting fisa warrant was issued but another warrant was issued for servers for the trump monopoly. this is in the weeks leading up to the campaign in the presidential election. i know that from my own interactions from people in the campaign, they're using trump organization email addresses. >> i think it's very clear that the house and senate intelligence committees have to get deeply involved in this and it may well be that the house and senate judiciary committees on behalf of our civil liberties also have to get involved. there is no question that the congress has to get to the bottom of this. i want to emphasize, a number of
7:21 pm
people have been committing felonies. they had been deliberately leaking secrets in a way which is illegal and which is dangerous to the united states and it is a real problem. >> sean: obama expand executive order 12333 which allowed sharing of this very highly, deeply top-secret intelligence communications in the case of general flynn to be shared with 16 other agencies, he did that on his final two weeks out of the campaign. how important is obama's role in this? he made the statements that we had no role in ordering this. did he know about it? how important is that? >> how can he say he had no role in ordering it if it was in fact a presidential directive because it affects all 17 agencies? >> sean: that party did but he had no role in seeking a fisa warrant. it wasn't ordered from the white house. >> let's go back to what he does clearly have a role in.
7:22 pm
read carefully what it says. they didn't just say you can share secrets, they said you can share information that you don't even believe is true. you have all this rumor, all this gossip which goes from nsa, 216 other agencies, one of whom leaks it to "the new york times" and "washington post," then it becomes a story. it's a total lie a then it becomes a story, than other tv channels pick it up and one with it for three straight days. >> sean: do you remember the day that that story about the dossier broke bo's feed and see in an hysterical breathless coverage of this as though this was the smoking gun? they also say, sara carter and john solomon, they also say that they found no evidence even now that they had the two warrants, none, whatsoever. not one smidgen of evidence that backs up the claims by the media that they been saying. it >> you know of a former director of national intelligence general clapper has
7:23 pm
said publicly unequivocally that in all the things he looked at had all the reports he saw, there is zero evidence of collusion between the trump campaign and the russians which would make you wonder why is this still an issue, except of course that the democrats and "the new york times" and "the washington post" are desperate to do anything to slow down donald trump. this field we have to take a break, more with newt gingrich right after this, were going to talk with health care and much more, and at this. >> we ran on a repeal and replace plan. that's what this is, the repeal and replace plan we ran on, now i am intent on making sure we fulfill our promises. >> sean: intramural problem squ, will ask the former speaker about that, will have michelle malkin on this busy news night in the latest on the explosive wikileaks revelation straight ahead ♪

7:29 pm
conference to doing what we said we would do on the election. and we ran on of repeal and replace plan. that's what this is, the repeal and replace plan we ran on, and i'm intent on making sure we fulfill our promises but what i want to tell my fellow citizens, the nightmare of obamacare is about to end. we are doing what we said we would do in the campaign, we would repeal and replace this awful lot that is crashing. >> sean: speaker of the house paul ryan failing to repeal the promise to repeal and replace obamacare, they met with members of the freedom caucus to discuss the new health care bill. as i said last night, they need to hammer out their differences because we cannot have a civil war breaking out in the media, it's only go to hurt their ability to get things done in her to the american people. we continue now with newt gingrich. the club for growth, heritage action, americans for prosperity, freedom works, the freedom caucus, some members of the study committee rand paul, mike lee, ted cruz, marco rubio are against this bill, here's my
7:30 pm
question. this has been discussed as their primary agenda item for eight years. they released the bill, they rolled out a bill yesterday and there is not consensus. why didn't they build consensus, finish the bill in the square that you told me about, how legislation gets made, how the sausage gets made before they rolled out? maybe something that can never happen. at present with african republican house member and every republican senator behind him, this is our answer to obamacare were all in agreement were going to pass it today. am i naive to think that something like that could have happened rather than the squabbling that has been going on in tv that les took 24? >> i think it might've been done but it would be very, very hard. there are two key things to remember about where we are. the first is this bill is the beginning of a three or four or five step process.
7:31 pm
this is not the only bill is going to come down the road. >> sean: they do the criticisms were before within their own ranks. >> you could do by the criticisms and a couple ways. one is if you want to pass something very early, you're going to have to pass it under senate reconciliation rules. that's just a fact. >> sean: right. >> if that's what you're going to do, those rules define narrowly what can be in the bil bill. at least half the complaints are about a reality that paul ryan at the mitch mcconnell are working with. >> sean: that's legitimate, that's all true, 100%. >> second, in the senate, the margin is closer than it looks because it takes 50 votes plus vice president pence, that means you can lose to, you can lose two on the right, loose to on the left, you can lose two in the middle over things like whether or not you're going to have opioid treatments are going to drop them which were somebody
7:32 pm
like senator portman who spent an enormous number of speeches on the opioid epidemic, it's not a right or left issue it's a practical issue. all this stuff going on at once. i probably would've been pretty close to what paul ryan dig. bring a bill out, go to mark ups. allow amendments. then they go to to energy and commerce into ways and means to a markup in the budget committee of the combined bill. then you go to the rules committee, the members of the freedom caucus can walk in and say we want to put these amendments in order. and if they can say were not going to vote for the rule unless we get some amendments. this is the legislative process. my only point would be and i think it's fair from a paul ryan standpoint to be slightly perplexed. this is not a perfect bill. this is the first of five or six reform efforts that are going to come out during the course of the year. >> sean: tom price last night
7:33 pm
he said this was going to be rolled out three different ways. that made me feel a little better. but i wish he would've explained it better. >> i think had they started originally, i agree with this, it's the one criticism than the president should take to heart. if they had started by saying let us give you a context. you're going to get a first bill designed to get through the senate, not designed to be perfect, designed to get through the senate so the president can sign it as rapidly as possible. big a step towards repeal. guess what, you're not going to get any democrats. no democrat is good to vote to repeal this. that means you has to carry a narrow burden. >> sean: maybe i would've liked to see a lot of these things result behind the scenes first. maybe i'm naive. >> i think there is sometimes, and i do think if you look at the medicaid reform, it may be the biggest conservative reform since the welfare reform bill of 1996. these are not small things. >> sean: they got to remember,
7:34 pm
they're going to know illness they better get it right. >> they better plan on a second bill and they better plan on tom price doing a series of regulatory changes. this will go on all year. i want to say one other thing that's really important. republicans cannot allow the trump administration to fail in its first big effort. when you're done fighting, don't complain and comment on the mend and come up virtually every republican ought to vote yes, we'll have another fight in six weeks and two months. but it's very important. that president trump have a win on this bill. >> sean: big time, i totally agree with that, always good to see you. we have more reaction to the explosive wikileaks allegations, retired colonel tony shaffer, president obama is furious with president trump, he is learned in recent weeks, shouldn't it be the other way around? michelle malkin will weigh in on that on this super busy news
7:35 pm
night. just a few dabs is clinically proven to seal out more food particles. super poligrip is part of my life now.

why pause a spontaneous moment? cialis for daily use treats ed and the urinary symptoms of bph.

tell your doctor about your medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas® for pulmonary hypertension, as this may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have a sudden decrease or loss of hearing or vision, or an allergic reaction, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis. >> sean: look about the "hannity," wikileaks released a new batch of documents allegedly containing information about tactics the cia uses as part of its surveillance program. joining us now with reaction former intelligence official u.s. national security agency william binney and former cia officer lieutenant colonel tony shaffer. mr., let me start with you, wikileaks, caa uses stolen
7:39 pm
malware to attribute cyber attacks to nations like russia, what they're implying here is what they would deliberately mimic the hacking protocols of russia to obfuscate their own words, do believe that's true? >> i think that's true as well as i think a lot of the software that they've gotten to do the penetrations came from nsa and the other five eyes and other cooperating countries. they gained additional information once they penetrated into people like the russians and the ukrainians. >> sean: is it legal for them to do that at the cia? >> it's not their charter but they certainly are doing it and they have been doing it for many decades. it's nothing new for them. they've been using signals intelligence for quite some time. >> sean: in other words, we do know what happened in the case of general flynn, that was a felony violation of the espionage act. even though he did have in his case a security clearance, maybe
7:40 pm
they could have listened. but it was certainly illegal to release that. colonel, what is your take on all of this in the intelligence community, i'm sure it's just a few people, i have great faith in our intelligence services and what they do is dangerous and important. but if they're leaking information on americans and using techniques that could possibly spy through our tvs and not allow full encryptions of our phones, that's troubling to me. >> part of the deal is all those vulnerabilities you just mentioned the bad guys have to. this is always one of my concerns, i've done this thing for a. my concern on the inside is these people, our intelligence agencies have huge technology and huge power. if that power must be used ethically and a focus on the adversary only. what you've seen here as you pointed out it was used against one of our own, lieutenant general mike flynn is a friend of mine. on a personal level, i think it's horrendous on a legal
7:41 pm
level, it needs to be prosecute prosecuted. i think we have to understand it's good that we understand these things, it's good we have people who understand the tools. how you use those tools ethically, legally, and morally is hugely important. >> sean: if the cia in fact wikileaks, they have a track record, they've not been proven wrong one at time. i'm looking at these documents, i guess the most frightening thing if you're in the government as they release less than 1% of the information they say they have. they're talking about more powerful surveillance techniques than even the nsa without checks and balances. the fact that they built a cyber attack arsenal that $100 billion came from the obama years it implies that every single electronic device, they are capable of hacking and spying through. and even turning tvs into listening devices.
7:42 pm
do you believe that? do you think the cia has that capability, if they do, if there is no check and balance, doesn't that mean were all potentially subject to living in a police state for the government at wilkins by on whoever they want bribe, blackmail do whatever whatever they want with that? >> that is the danger of having this, this is one of the few times i cannot comment on what you're asking me. i used to do this for a living. i think some of those things are more powerful than you know and you listed. that's why it legally you have to be very specific how you use title 18 as law enforcement, title ten as military, title 50 is intelligence which has restrictions. president obama i've a feeling didn't care, he told people to go out and do things. morally, you have to have someone who is at the top willing to do the hard things, it's my job to restrict people from using those things. >> sean: we don't have
7:43 pm
constitutional protections. >> this is where were going. atp 20 to 29, the russian tool used to hack the dnc, we get it, not me but our guys. pretty former members of nsa, retired intelligence officers use these tools to break in there and get the information out, that's what the democrats don't want to talk about because it doesn't fit their narrative. >> sean: former operatives did it using the malware techniques, they put the russian fingerprints on expert make it look like the russians. if you're telling me this whole russian story that the media has been running with for months and months that it was our people that did it and they put the fingerprints of the russians on it? >> that's right, i don't have proof of it but this is what i've heard. if you go back and actually talk to people inside, the evidence is not that the russians did it the evidence is a russian tool was used. concerned americans who are fed up with the clintons doing things i think were the ones who got in there and broke the
7:44 pm
information out and give it to wikileaks. reporters don't seem to be interested in going and checking this out. >> sean: john sullivan sara carter they want to hear this. you had told me you say that every phone call, every text, every email of every american is gathered into metadata right now by our government, every single call, text, email, is that true? >> it's not just the metadata commits the content also. >> sean: our government is storing every conversation? >> i wrote that up in a sworn affidavit challenging the constitutionality of the states. >> sean: you say the executive order allows that. >> section 23c. >> sean: the same one that obama altered so succeed other agencies could share in the information. >> if i could point out a greater danger here, they know about all these weaknesses and

firewalls, operating systems, switches, service, do so on and how to break into them. they aren't fixing them. that means that everybody in the world including all of us here in the u.s. are still sitting here vulnerable to attacks. >> sean: you're saying they're doing it as a matter of course and that's why you left after 32 years of the nsa. >> they come back to us after an attack and say we need more money for cybersecurity, but they don't fix the problems they already know. they're not giving you cybersecurity. >> sean: this is worse than any spy novel i can think of. coming up, "wall street journal" reporting that president obama is furious with president trump but shouldn't be the other way around? we'll play you many of the nasty comments that obama has said about trump and will get reaction from a michelle malkin next. i've found a permanent escape from monotony.

>> sean: welcome back to "hannity," "wall street journal" reported today that president obama is furious to president trump. shouldn't it be the other way around? the article also notes that trump reached out to obama to thank them for the handwritten note that obama left and he never returned his call. the unreturned adjuster is hardly surprising given the downright nasty things obama
7:50 pm
said about trump during the campaign season, take a look. >> he's insecure enough that he pumps himself out by putting people down. he doesn't care much about the basic values that we try to impart to our kids. >> if your closest advisor doesn't trust you to tweet, how can you trust him with the nuclear codes? if you accept the support of plan sympathizers before you are president, you will accept their support after your precedent. >> sean: joining us now, michelle malkin investigates, and started a day new episodes of her program are available read he supports the protesters the snowflakes out there protesting, he said horrible things about on the campaign, doesn't return a phone call. if i'm trump, i'm like who cares what he thinks at this point? >> that's how president trump it
7:51 pm
should feel about this nasty man who will not leave the beltway. this is a lesson unfortunately that too many establishment republicans have not learned over the years. that is when democrats pretend to give you an olive branch, they're not actually making a signal of working together, they're going to snatch that all of branch back and beat you over the head with it because that's what democrats do. >> sean: all these holdovers, there are over 500 people who need to be confirmed by the senate and we only got to ben carson and rick perry last week. isn't it time every obama hold over to be shown the door? some of them in there i believe and as evidenced by john solomon and sara carter my opening segment of the show tonight, there are people in there that are sabotaging the current president because they agree with the old president. don't they need to all go? didn't clinton do that when he became president? >> absolutely he did, they
7:52 pm
applied every partisan litmus test under the sun to do it. why shouldn't the trump administration played by the same rules? in fact in many cases there are, it's just going to take a long time. they've got to drain the swamp, clean house of every crack and crevice of the federal bureaucracy commits most urgent and exigent in the justice department, the department of defense, then you have to work your way all the way down. >> sean: john solomon and sara carter companies are respected journalists, solomon was with the ap for 20 years. which do you make of what they discovered as in fact there was a fisa surveillance in the weeks leading up to the election. reporting now that there might have been a second warrant that was issued, nonpfizer. that is attorney general know about it? did the people around him know
7:53 pm
about it? any information shared with hillary? what was the reason for this? what was the justification? did anybody think about the political ramifications, did they see any of the internal political -- remember the political campaign was being run under the same email server. did anyone think maybe they shouldn't have access to that? >> solomon and carter are both incredible journalists, they are doing the job that some of the of the lapdogs in the beltway media refuse to do under obama, and of course it's the kind of muckraking that so many of these liberal journalists refuse to d do. until they woke up when trump was sworn into office. it certainly does lend itself. the more they produce these kinds of scoops, circumstantial evidence of something that i know happened under the last eight years of the administration because i documented it so comprehensively

and culture of corruption. that is that this president used every single lever of power in his reach to aggrandize himself and secure a permanent ruling majority, why wouldn't they use the caa? >> sean: he stomped all over the constitution it wouldn't surprise me, congrats on the show, thanks for being with us. when we come back, we need your help, an important question of the day, some of the nasty messages you people are living for me about my hair, my tired, i'm fat. like an "unjection™". xeljanz xr. a once daily pill for adults with moderate to severe ra for whom methotrexate did not work well. xeljanz xr can reduce pain, swelling and joint damage, even without methotrexate. xeljanz xr can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections, lymphoma and other cancers have happened.
