tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  June 9, 2017 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT

5:00 pm
there are a terrible a lot of lies going about in the world of the worst of it is is half of them are true. that's our story, thanks for sharing it with us tonight, tucker carlson coming up next. ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight," president trump is watching yesterday, he has rendered his verdict. he said a former fbi director james comey's testimony is a major victory for the administration's side of the russia story, in effect a complete vindication. >> president trump: yesterday it showed no collusion, no obstruction, that was an excuse by the democrats who lost an election that some people think they shouldn't have lost because it's almost impossible for the democrats to lose the electoral college as you know. you have to run up the whole east coast and you have to win every thing as a that's just what we did. it was just an excuse.
5:01 pm
james comey confirmed a lot of what i said. >> tucker: you might be able to find some overstatement in there but here's what's true. as of 8:00 p.m. eastern time tonight, donald trump is still the president of the united states. that means on the most basic level, his testimony failed to achieve its goal. removing trump from office was the goal. there was collusion, russia hacked our election, salts are democracy, imperils our way of life. you hear those lines all the time, but nobody in d.c. actually believes that. that's why nobody ever explains how exactly it happened or what specifically the effects work because they have no idea and they don't really care. they just want trump gone along with anyone else who was in the way, russia is just a means. first they tried racism, rubber that? he was supposed to be the biggest races, hillary clinton based an entire presidential campaign on that, it didn't work. in the end, trump at a higher
5:02 pm
percentage of votes from some minority groups, not a good strategy. somebody creative came up with an idea of trump as a traitor, a russian agent posing as a 70-year-old new york real estate developer. it kind of worked, half the country seems to buy at and 100% of cnn viewers were all in. it's been all putin ever since then, mike flynn lost his job, others may follow. now they are trying for jeff sessions was not only the attorney general but probably the most smartest and principal person in the entire administration, he's got to go. and of course he's a russian spy now too. afterward he went behind closed doors with the senate in details, that conversation was supposed to be secret that's the entire point of a closed-door meeting, needless to say someone like that almost immediately. apparently he suggested jeff sessions may have interacted with russian ambassador sergei because lack in the spring of
5:03 pm
2016. may have, suggested, he doesn't really know. neither does anybody else. even if it's true, who cares? what does it mean a question mark doesn't matter. house minority leader nancy pelosi never want to wait for faxes already demanding that sessions resign over it. >> i did say on march 2nd that he should resign as attorney general. >> tucker: yet he should resign, but with the crime here exactly? is there evidence jeff sessions worked with russia to elect president trump? never has been any evidence of that. here's what he is accused of doing. last september, he had met with russians in the office, it was one of the 25 times he met with an advance at her in the course of his official duties. then he spoke at an event in global partners in democracy. dozens of investors attend at that event which was organized by the obama administration,
5:04 pm
probably russia planted there too. after his speech, he spoke to ambassador kislyak who is not a spy, whose job it is to speak to senators. he never hid either of those meetings, he said they took place in his capacity as a senator and had nothing to do with the trump campaign. there is zero proof that he is lying about that, but he became under a lot of pressure and recuse himself from any justice department investigation. you would think that would end the matter but of course it didn't. this is not about truth or fairness much less protecting this country from foreign threats. it's about toppling -- let's not lie about it -- a democratically elected government that the permanent class in washington doesn't like. collusion with a foreign government against the interests of the united states is tantamount to treason, it's definitely a moral crime and we would never defend it and we would attack it of course. there's no evidence it actually happened. this whole story is a hoax, it's a lie and those who tell us are beginning to believe. that is the definition of mass hysteria commits deeply hurting our country.
5:05 pm
otherwise smart people pressed forward as if it's all entirely real despite mounting evidence it's not real at all. yesterday jim comey told the senate that a major "new york times" story from february that pushed a russia collusion narrative was actually garbage. >> that report for "the new york times" was not true, is that a fair statement? >> in the main, it was not true. the people talking about it often don't really know what's going on are those of us actually know what's going on are talking about it, and we don't call the press to say it you got that thing wrong about this sensitive topic. we just have to leave it there. spoon the story and question you won't be surprised to learn was based on anonymous sources and r he made his remark, and at times admitted he couldn't even find those resources for a response. whatever, the russians hector democracy, let's find another which to burn. america's ruling class is going crazy. victor davis hanson has some perspective on that, he's a retired professor, after
5:06 pm
watching our hearings yesterday, where you more or less convinced that donald trump and his associates worked with the russians. >> i was less, i think he's sort of a tragic figure the more he tries to salvage he's character of the more he denigrates it. almost everything he said it wasn't logical. it wasn't the habit of the fbi to comment on ongoing investigations but all of our information about donald trump's came from the fbi leaks. we know on three occasions he went out into the public and commented on the status of the investigation on hillary clinton. it didn't make sense. he wrote a memo because he said after trump it was such an extraordinary conversation, he felt so compromised that he might have to record on a government computer. on government car come on government time, yet he also testified that loretta lynch did not suggest but gave him a direct order an intrusion into investigation. and yet he didn't go out and
5:07 pm
write a memo on that occasion. this a lot of things that don't cooperate with each other. loretta lynch is at the core of all of these because it undermines almost everything he said. when he said he was shocked that trump hinted that he would like to see flynn and treated well, she gave him a direct order and unlike trump or she apparently resisted, he did not resist that pressure. he was very upset about trump's suggestions but it had no effect on the investigation which we know continued and then he didn't object to trump the way he didn't object to loretta lynch is pressure either. he didn't go to jeff sessions or any subordinates. it was just not convincing. you brought up "the new york times" piece that february article was a signature moment that developed, it was based on anonymous sources. he was using euphemisms when he
5:08 pm
said he doubted the veracity based on the sources. all of that is a euphemism for unmasking and reverse targeting surveillance. it's the subject of a subpoena by the house intelligence committee. it may be the subpoenas have any veracity that samantha power or susan rice or john brennan were using surveillance of foreign operatives to find information about political appointments, unmasking those names and licking them the to the press. no wonder "the new york times" says it can find the original sources because they are either under cepeda or their subordinates shortly will be. no wonder comey doesn't want to get anywhere near that story because there may have been people in the fbi who were doing the same thing with those people. >> tucker: i would never claim that the trump administration or the presidents himself are blameless, i don't think they are. i think they made a lot of mistakes and it's frustrating to watch. it does seem to me that he's democratically elected, he is
5:09 pm
the president and a group of unelected people, bureaucrats mostly are trying to undo the results of that election. i'm not a conspiracy not. you see that happening? >> yeah, absolutely. barack obama right in the middle of the investigation, an ongoing investigation said there was nothing there. we know presidents say all sorts of things and confidential conversation, that's one thing. the second is this is sort of a narrative that is political in origin because it tries to delegitimize trump, there's no evidence of collusion. it puts pressure on purple state house members they should be very careful about aligning themselves with trump on key issues if they can calcified or ossify the house that seems to be weak. finally, there is one narrative that seems a very foreboding, did the obama administration's
5:10 pm
veil unmask and leak names of american citizens? if that were true, we don't know much about it because we've been absorbed with the southern on the story. >> tucker: they hacked our election, professor. >> let me just finish by saying it these people in washington make the necessary gymnastics to survive changes in administration. all before trump came into office, there were leaks about collusion. suddenly when he's in office, comey and assures him that he's not the subject of an investigation which had been leaked that he was. i think the timing is very surreal because it shows you that people are always making adjustments to fit the next administration and massage themselves in a way that would be suitable. >> tucker: they would head to believe it's happening. excellent for joining us. during a news conference with the romanian president today, the president decide the mic denied ever asking for loyalty
5:11 pm
oath and he would be willing to swear to that under oath. >> would you be willing to speak under oath? >> president trump: 100%. >> if robert mueller wanted to speak with you about that? >> president trump: i would be glad to tell them what i just told you. >> tucker: it was hard with the impeachment triggered democrats are hoping for but i told her to spend to their advantage all day. >> i found it quite stunning. it's not everyday you have a former director of the fbi saying he couldn't trust the president. >> i think comey came across as an honest man under oath against a president who doesn't focus on muscle tension of telling the truth. >> he demanded loyalty, he wanted the case against his friend to go away and he obsessively hounded the fbi director. >> i think we saw confirmation in his restless testimony detailing the frightening reality of president trump's pattern of contempt for justice. >> tucker: democratic
5:12 pm
strategist and former missouri state representative, thanks for coming on. this is from the book shatter, it describes a hillary campaign and its aftermath. it says here that strategy sets within 24 hours of his concession speech, assembled communications team to engineer the case of the election was not on terribly on the up and up. already the russian hacking was the centerpiece of the argument. this was a strategy devised in the ashes of the clinton campaign to delegitimize trump and it's been far more effective than anyone ever would have predicted. >> politics aside, it should matter. what we know as confirmed by 22 different independent intelligence agencies in the country as confirmed by a director called me under oath the russians interfered in our election process and that interference was digital benefit of president trump. what we don't know is whether
5:13 pm
their collusion, based upon the evidence, there was no collusion. the fact that russia included the mic intruded into our election process should be troubling to everyone. nobody saying it didn't happen. >> tucker: i'm sick it didn't happen. they're not 22 intelligence agencies in this country there are 17 and that includes the coast guard. not one person who was ever made that allegation to me has explained how they affected the outcome at all. they didn't have the election, they did alter the election, the whole thing is a hoax. >> we know that it was hacked. director, yesterday said there was no doubt whatsoever it said from the senate. >> we don't know what the effect is we don't willing to give it out. we don't know whether people voted for donald trump or hillary clinton because of the hacking. what we do is know was that there was hacking, it involved exposing internal workings of the democratic party. we do know that. that's up for debate. spill not not only is it up for debate. everything is up for debate because nothing is settled.
5:14 pm
what you have is a lot of mindless people who don't know any details nodding in unison, on a host of other subjects in washington, the truth is if you go and look at the details, the dnc's servers were never examined by the u.s. government by the fbi because the clinton people wouldn't allow that. actually it is an open question, there is no evidence at all. >> all we can say is that you say that hacking didn't happen or we didn't know whether hacking happens but the director of the fbi, under oath so that hacking happened there was no doubt. >> tucker: who did it is the question, -- >> senator burr asked director, he said i have no doubt that russia interfered with our election process. >> tucker: what does that mean? nobody wants to get into details because they don't know the answer. >> two different questions, the questions are did it happen? i think that has been decided.
5:15 pm
did it happen, what the effect is, i'm willing to give you interactive bipartisanship, and willing to give you we don't know the effect but we know what happened. >> tucker: we don't know the details. is not a meaningful claim unless we can explain what the clay means. >> it happened we don't know the effect. >> tucker: you can repeat it as much as you want, but it's meaningless unless it's companied by details and is not. the attorney general of the united states is loathed by the left, i think that's legitimate. they are now trying to take them out of commission to the extent that he artie has been on the ground that he is somehow collaborating with the russians. to his internal disk credit and shame suggested on a cowardly way yesterday with attic splitting what he meant. i'm asking overly simple question. this guy come at the attorney general brushed elbows with the russian ambassador, does that make him a collaborator with the russian government? >> what we know is that at least two times last summer during the course of his worth so much work
5:16 pm
as an advocate and surrogate for the trump campaign, attorney general sessions met with russian individuals. one of them probably being the russian ambassador. what we also know is he did not properly disclosed that when asked during his senate confirmation hearing in either the prefilings and his actual testimony. i'm not even going to call it a crime. what we know is what he met with them, we also he did not disclose it. this is why he voluntarily recused himself. >> tucker: we don't know actually paid >> "the washington post" reports that director comey says there was a third contact undisclosed. >> tucker: he said he didn't know. >> "the washington post" is reporting that the mic. >> tucker: i think he gave depression appeared >> he recused himself -- >> tucker: let's be totally bill, let's stop the innuendo.
5:17 pm
if you speak to the russian ambassador at an event organized by the obama obama administratn knocked acting for your -- there is nothing wrong with that, not qualifying for the campaign activity, is totally nonsinister and now people are claiming that that is enough that he should resign. >> tucker: i hear you do disclose that in your preamble. we don't know that public events at the rnc were the limits of his contact with russia. again, he should have disclosed it. if nothing else, even if those contacts were not sinister, he should have disclosed and he failed to. i'm not saying it's a climb stomach crime. spoon teenagers disclose it if he met with the russians in his capacity as a trump campaign surrogate. that was not the question he was asked in his confirmation hearing. he was asked if at any time in the course of last year. >> tucker: it does not mean he's working on behalf of the
5:18 pm
russians. >> you need to explain why you did it. >> tucker: your impugning the russian domestic repetition of decent men for politics and it's wrong. >> if you met with them for totally innocuous purpose is to say yes i did and this is why. i don't know, that's the reason. it should have been up for question if one of the judiciary committee. >> tucker: think this moment is degrading our standards of justice? at all? >> i don't. it's been calling names because they talk to people in the part party. >> tucker: nancy pelosi who some kind of leader. said he should resign over this. >> he did not disclose contact of russians when asked under oath. whether or not he did for innocent purposes or not he didn't disclose it, that's a problem. >> tucker: thank you for sitting to my last and final russia segment.
5:19 pm
president trump seemed satisfied with what happened, what if ann coulter think she was watching too. 240 years of american capitalism finally giving up with what we never do we need it, it's called a general neutral beer, will tell you more. new bike? yeah, 'cause i got allstate. if you total your new bike, they replace it with a brand new one. that's cool. i got a new helmet. we know steve. it's good to be in (good hands). we're not professional athletes. but that doesn't mean we're giving up. i'm in this for me. for me. along with diet and exercise, farxiga helps lower blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. lowering a1c by up to 1.2 points.

5:22 pm
and call 844-234-2424. >> tucker: president trump was pretty pleased with the gym comey show yesterday, he said as much during a press conference today. >> president trump: no collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaguer, that was an excuse by the democrats. james comey confirmed a lot of what i said and some of the things that he said weren't tru true. should i take one of the killer
5:23 pm
networks that treat me so badly is fake news? should i do that? >> let me get back to james comey's testimony you said he didn't tell the truth, did he ask for a pledge of loyalty from you, it's another thing he said. >> president trump: no he did not. >> he said those things under oath, would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version. >> president trump: 100%. >> if robert mueller wanted to speak with you on that? >> president trump: i would be glad to say what i just told yo you. >> tucker: and coulter joins us tonight, what did you think? >> i'm glad donald trump threatened james comey with those conversations being taped, what he had to say changed quite dramatically once he had to worry that they might have been taped. everyone forgets this but when trump sent out that tweet saying he better hope that room wasn't taped, when he tweeted that, the biggest story that comey was leaking was that trump had tried to obstruct justice by
5:24 pm
interfering with an investigation of a crime. the crime was michael flynn contacting the russians during the transition. whatever flynn did during the campaign before he was working for trump's relevance. we note thanks, comey admitted that, he said i want to know about -- i should know if any of my satellites should know if i add in proper context. what he was talking about was the firing of flynn. that was being billed as proof of collusion between the trump campaign and russia. then it turned out a few days later, it was appropriate for michael flynn to be talking to the russians, the only reason he fired him was because he had allegedly misled vice president pence. when he says go easy on flynn, don't let these lies continue about that contact with russia being illegal, evidence of a crime you're investigating him
5:25 pm
for committing a crime. something that james comey also did not know until the testimony was released the night before he testified. three times told president trump that he was not under investigation. what were his grounds for refusing to tell the public that? it's utterly outrageous, a private citizen who is under investigation looking at in the police refused to say they've cleared you? >> tucker: because we might declare you guilty in the futur future? i doubt you ever fell for this but the four months i was taking it was a very literal man was taking it seriously and looking for evidence that trump colluded or whatever it's dawned on me that this is just performance art, it's all a hoax. if they succeeded getting trump out, guess who is a russian agent next, mike pence print this is not about russia or national security or hacking our election. it's all a lie.
5:26 pm
>> you're absolutely right about that. ask me if it's a nice day today. >> tucker: is a nice day today? >> i can't tell you because it would require a duty to correct. that's the most insane argument i've heard for not being able to clear someone for something that is ripping up the front pages, comey won't even say that trump isn't being investigated because if i make a statement about reality, there's a future, then what will i do? it's the most insane thing i've ever heard. i do want to correct on one thing with your last guest. you said there is no evidence of russia interfering with the election, there is, with russia trying to influence the election, and colluding with americans, that's with the defamatory trump dossier. whatever happened to that? that was a russia produced dossey eight used by never a trump or his then the hillary clinton campaign, then the fbi, and broadcast hysterically by cnn. that was a russia produced
5:27 pm
dossier, that is the only evidence we have of russia trying to collude. spoon it was a high water mark bus speed. and coulter, thanks a lot for joining us. i appreciate it. muslims in australia are demanding taxpayer-funded safety spaces in their country, somebody says it's time for those safest places in the u.s. as well. stay tuned hey, bud. you need some help? no, i'm good. come on, moe. i have to go.

5:31 pm
>> tucker: recent and high-profile events in europe indicate that islam and some of its form could be hazardous to people's health, but australia it is muslims who declare that they are the ones that need safe spaces. the islamic council of victoria that rep since 200,000 muslims in australia is calling on the government to fund a series of safe spaces where muslim can safely express "inflammatory views that would cause trouble if voiced publicly." this is part of the deradicalization process. she says safe spaces would be a good idea here, blair and manet us tonight. what exactly what a safest place for muslims look like what you mark >> first we need to start by understanding that everybody understands what a safe space means. for me today, i'm talking about safe spaces being who you are, without fear of being or harassed. i think it's a good idea to have
5:32 pm
everywhere. america was built on the idea that we could express our religious freedoms, we can affect free speech, not know that something you can believe it. i think it's a necessary thing. were talking about safe spaces for muslims, we need to recognize that we've been at surveilled for a long time. i converted to islam two years ago. for folks who have been muslim and living in america, it's a crisis for them. you are being surveilled, you're being watched and children are being affected. >> tucker: why do you think law enforcement agencies would put muslims under surveillance? >> obviously because of the counterterrorism efforts. >> tucker: why would there be counterterrorism efforts aimed at muslims. >> kaman tucker, you're a smart guy, you know what that is pittsboro and i'm a man who has questions about scant question about the statement you just made. >> there are acts of terror that are committed in the name of a law that do not reflect the muslim community. bill and they may or they may not. he will concede this is not entirely random it's not that that u.s. government or police
5:33 pm
departments are looking for religious group to persecute or is that what you are saying. >> i am saying that. they've been in the business of doing that for quite some time. >> tucker: one of the do it to the amish are one of the do it to hasidic? they are set apart communities, not assimilate it. i see a lot of terror attacks come stomach committed by those groups. >> is not profitable to be speaking against those other groups. right now it's very profitable to be speaking against muslims because it's feeding against this wartime efforts. >> tucker: we can debate the details here, i think it's important to acknowledge a baseline. there have been an awful lot of attacks where actual people died in the united states and in europe, committed by people saying were acting in the name of islam. other muslims that you don't ask for my name and you're perverting a religion. there are still people who have killed a lot of other people in the name of islam. it's not like some massive fantasy that law enforcement is
5:34 pm
acting out of, this is a real thing. i don't understand why groups like yours want to acknowledge the reality of that because it's there, it's true. >> i don't understand why other groups wanted knowledge of violence is it exclusive to the muslim community. it's not axles of to my religio religion. we see people being targeted a way that's unfair. we also have this rise of white supremacists and alt right violence that's being. you can't ignore that it's happening. >> tucker: if you're reading only salon all day maybe you've been convinced of that. the truth is, there are hard numbers kept by the u.s. government that show exactly the number of people who died and how in terror attacks in need of states. the truth is there is no comparison. there is a problem with people self identifying as muslims murdering other people. i don't think you're implicated in that i'm not saying you are. i don't know why you're not more upset at them. i'm an episcopalian, --
5:35 pm
i'm not saying i'm not upset. it's been what you're doing is lecturing the u.s. government for being racist, there's a real problem in our community. we try to do so thing about it but maybe they should stop surveilling us so much, that would be a fair thing to say. instead of always the fault of the larger society. that's silly. >> i think it's ridiculous the idea that we can't have those safe spaces, it's something that's out of the question. the truth is muslims are being targeted in ways and there are other communities that need safe spaces. the lgbt committed community. >> tucker: i'm not sure you're here at to speak on their behalf too, i feel like i'm harassed a lot on line cook, i guess were all victims here. here's the question. what would muslims say in safe spaces that they wouldn't say in public do you think what mark >> i don't speak for all muslims and i am a black square woman who happens to be a muslim.
5:36 pm
for my own expense when i go to the airport and i go to untangle a pair of headphones and i get visited by somebody from tsa. it's that type of thing. we have to look at the fact that it's not necessarily -- >> tucker: this is a sincere question, you're asking for someone to pay for a safe space, i want examples for the kind of things that muslims believe they can only say in a safe space and could not say on this show or on a street corner, what kind of things with a way saying it is safe spaces? >> i don't think it's something they can't say elsewhere but they have internal community dialogues. to hash things out to have his complicated discussions. something else i want to be out in the forefront that the islamic council of victoria has done in collaboration with the board of imams is to speak out against violence against women. these internal community dialogues, acknowledging that there is an issue of violence against women, there needs to b
5:37 pm
be -- 's built in the muslim communities. >> in all committees. >> tucker: to know how all identity pallets domestic politics converges at the" markk >> tucker: primarily are american, your first and foremon american what mark >> i'm black first. >> tucker: end of conversation conversation, the judge overseeing the case is tied to planned parenthood, remember the group, will tell us why the judge shouldn't be ruling on abortion-related matters. it's an interesting story, stay tuned.

the national abortion federation suit of the group over the videos and in response a federal judge imposed a gag order in contravention of the first amendment and common sense. that order ordered the group not to release additional videos. can he roll on something like this? the group says he has a strong personal to a planned parenthood affiliated clinic at all to recuse himself. david allowed the n is the center for medical progress is founder and he joins us now. thanks for coming on. one of the reasons that this story piqued our interest is it's a clear violation of free expression. our interpretation is were not allowed to show these videos which i believe are real on our air which seems un-american to me. it raises obvious questions like who is the judge that would make such an order, where has he coming from? you have a veneration that might that. >> judge orrick is someone who

used to run a planned parenthood clinic in san francisco when he was a longtime keyboard member they made a decision while he was on the board of directors to host and embed a planned parenthood clinic and set up their own office headquarters based in san francisco. that's information that he never disclosed to the senate judiciary committee and he never disclosed to the defendants in these lawsuits from planned parenthood. >> tucker: how do you know what's true? >> we know it's true because of the 990 forms that were filed by the family resource center that judge orrick was was a longtime keyboard member of. he had only said to the senate judiciary committee that he was a member of the board of directors of that organization that to this day is hosting a planned parenthood clinic embedded in its office space. judge orrick only told them he was on the board of directors until 1999, it turns out he was actually persisting on the board

pre-existing personal bias and prejudice in favor of them, and clearly has a conflict of interest at the end of the day, this is the same reason that someone shouldn't be hearing the same case or the lawsuit of his brother or someone he's related to. >> tucker: of course, the net effect is to prevent the public from saying something that is real, that is true. nobody is contesting that. they're like these are fake videos, they're not fake videos, they're not fake videos, there no longer even claiming that. this judge is preventing news organizations from broadcasting them publicly. that's an authoritarian and insane. has the aclu coming to their aid, you would think they would have an interest in civil liberties it's in our name. >> maybe they will, i hope so. planned parenthood the biggest abortion business in the country whose senior level leadership is caught on camera now for all the world to see harvesting and selling the body parts of unborn brothers and sisters, they are colluding with the organs of
