>> dana: we went paddle boarding get in the middle of the lake and i say peter, can you see jasper? irresponsible parent. set your dvrs, don't ever miss an episode of "the five." "hannity" is next. >> sean: welcome to "hannity." president trump is on a roll looking to push through his agenda. we are back to that, finally. newt gingrich, jay sekulow, ann coulter, lou dobbs and tom price are all here tonight with reaction. first, the trump-russia collusion conspiracy theory has now been thoroughly debunked. today, there is zero evidence. it's now time for republicans to rally around the president and get to the work of fulfilling the promises they made to you, the american people. let's movee forward. that's tonight's opening monologue. ♪ for 11 months, we have been seeing nonstop russia-trump collusion hysteria coming from
the black helicopter tinfoil hat conspiracy theorists, all whon want to destroy trump, especially in the media, like rachel maddow and her friends over at msnbc and cnn. they are completely unhinged and deranged. so i the democrats. some on the left continue to peddle this conspiracy theory. it's becoming so ridiculous that even democrats are saying, uh oh, georgia six, enough is enough. let's take a look. >> i think robert costa is right. the fact that we have spent so much time talking about it russia has been a distraction from what should be the clear contrast between the democrats and the trump agenda. >> people in ohio are not talking about russia or michael flynn or putin. they're worried about paying the bills what's happening with their , pension, how much it cost to send a kid to school. real bread and butter stuff. when we are talking about trump so much, wee are not talking about them.
>> sean: for those on theno lef, who are still holding out hopeh and praying upon prayer upon prayer on their knees that they will somehow be proven right about trump-russia collusion, they should take a look at this exchange between congressman trey gowdy and former obama dhs yesecretary jeh johnson from yesterday. it's not going to help their optimism.ta take a look. >> you have seen no evidence that the russians were successful at changing voter tallies or voter totals.re >> correct. >> at the time, had you seen any evidence that donald trump or any member of his campaign colluded, conspired, or coordinated with the russians >> not beyond what has been out there, open sourced and not beyond anything that i'm sure this committee has already seen and heard before directly from ethe intelligence community? >> sean: johnson is the latest
in a long list of former obama officials to say the exact same thing.g. they have not seen any evidence whatsoever of trump-russia collusion. voter tallies were not changed in the november election. and johnson also testified that the dnc rejected help from the dhs after it was allegedly hacked last summer. why would they do that? they also blocked the fbi from having access to their servers. maybe the destroy-trump-media -- maybe they should start asking questions. what was that they didn't want the fbi and the dhs to see? earlier today, president t trump said he does not have any tapes of james comey. i have to tell you, the media will spin it otherwise. this was a brilliant and important move by the president. he knows in the world of thisth deep state -- it's true -- anybody can be surveilled. we talked about that a lot. by saying what he said, the president put doubt in james
comey's mind, and more importantly, kept comey honest. we now know that comey is nothing more than an angry and disgruntled employee who admitted he leaked to get a special counsel. in speaking of the special counsel, it's time to focus on robert mueller. he must recuse himself. and the deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, mueller was hired to investigate, but then hem ade it about obstruction, because there was no evidence on that. he's focusing on finances. mission creep. then we have to ask the obvious question. is mueller carrying out some political witch hunt for his bff, james comey? he's had a mass of conflicts of interest. the same goes for rosenstein. he's the guy who recommended c that james comey be fired. and then appointed mueller to serve as a special counsel, giving him free range to engage
in investigation, mission creep. both mueller and rosenstein need to recuse themselves. resigned, get out of the way. guess what? we already know the answer about trump-russia collusion. we cannot forget about loretta lynch. or hillary clinton? if the department of justice, if the fbi, if they care a little bit about it -- real, criminal activity, both parties should now call for an investigation into the former attorney general, who influenced james comey's investigation into hillary clinton's service scandal. by the way, remember the tarmac meeting? it's an issue, not an investigation. whatever she called it. they should do an extensive investigation into the uranium one deal. 20% of our foundational deal for nuclear weapons. hillary clinton signs a waiver. it goes to vladimir putin. her foundation gets millions of dollars. a kickback.oe
president trump is weighing in on bob mueller. he spoke to ainsley earhardt. earlier tonight. the full interview will air tomorrow morning. he is what he told ainsley abouf the russian investigation. a let's take a look. >> do you think robert mueller should recuse himself? he's good friends friends with james comey. he's hired some attorneys that were part omhillary clinton's foundation, had given money to hillary clinton's campaign and obama, should he recuse himself? >> he's very good friends with comey, which is very bothersome, but we are going to have to see. of we have to see in terms. look. there has been no obstruction. there has been noe collusion. there has been leaking by comey, but there's been no collusion, no obstruction, and virtually everybody agrees with that. i can say that the people that have been hired are all clinton supporters >> sean: now that the hysteria and hyperventilation about
trump-russia collusion is dying down, it's time to refocus. that's on the president. c his campaign promises, his agenda, to help those americans that are suffering. the president also reacted in his interview with ainsley. take a look. >> you have the white house, house and the senate.. you have the senators that are not on board. >> they are four good guys. therefore friends of>> mine. i think they will probably get there. we will have to see. you know, health care is a very difficult situation. if you look at clinton's private data, and after years and years, obamacare was murdered for them to get. now it's failed. it's virtually out of business. obamacare is a disaster. we are trying to do something in a very short period of time. >> sean: ainsley also got a chance to speak with the first lady, melania trump. here's what she had to say about moving into the white house. >> congratulations, you moved into the white house.ay how is it? >> we are enjoying it very much.
>> how about barron with school? >> he loves it here. >> are you missing new york? speak out not really i'm so busy. doing many great stuff. it's very special to me. >> sean: despite all thesedo distractions from the left, the president has laid out a bold, aggressive agenda for the country. now we are putting it on the side of the screen. this is what you, the american t people, voted for, that theirs media enforced, and that the deep state does not want to see accomplished. it's time for republicans to get back to work. here's what needs to be done if republicans want to be successful and earn your vote in 2018. they've got to continue to work towards passing in a imperfect plan to repeal and replace obamacare. it's got to get done. their weak centers. they never, ever intended to really rip heal and replace
obamacaream the right way. putting that aside, they still need to get this deal done like the president said, they'll be room for negotiation improvement on the road. number two, it's so important that the men and women -- the forgotten men and women of the selection, for example, the obama administration -- look at the side of your screen. a republican lawmakers need to remember that all those men and women left behind during obama's eight disastrous years, it's time to get back and focus on them. get people back to work. get people out of poverty. also off of government assistance and food a stamps. another important thing, keeping the promise to appoint an originalist to the supreme court. neil gorsuch. that will be a big help. a massive victory for the president and another kept promised. the next most important item on the agenda, we better move towards energy independence. it will create millions of high-paying jobs for americans, it will lower energy prices. the lifeblood of our economy. it'll be great for national
security.ce we are not relying on countrieso who hate our guts. the president, republicans have got to build this border wall. it was a key promise of the president. i would like to see at least 300 miles built and completed by november 2018. the president is an absolute genius. he's putting solar panels on the border wall. so much for that talking point that republicans want dirty air and water and they only care about dirty energy.bl if republicans can accomplish those five items -- they can focus solely on tax reform. 15% corporate tax. middle-class tax cuts.ey trillions of dollars for multinational corporations at a low rate. so we can build factories and centers. if republicans can pass a strong reform plan, you're going to see economic growth, explosion.pa by the way, like what happened during the reagan administration, when they balance the budget, it will drown out all of the noise
coming from the destroy-trump-media, the conspiracy theorist. even the deep state that are leaking selectively on thep- president every day.ns and probably all that insane ttalk about impeachment. it will benefit the weak, timid, republicans in the house and senate. they need to show some backbone. here with reaction, the author of the number one "new york times" best-selling book in the country, "understanding trump," former speaker of the house, newt gingrich. mr. speaker, a number one bestseller. i feel is when your best books by far. >> i am very excited by it. i think we've gotten great reaction, giving out copies of this. getting a very positive reaction to the whole concept. you're basically right about the core reality. if they can pass the right kind
of tax cut, and if they can really generate the level of job creation, comparable to say, reagan, this is all going to become a tremendous victory in '18-'20. they have to focus on creating a very big, very deep tax-cut.. i think one of the ways to do that is to focus on making a deficit neutral. not revenue neutral. t the difference is, revenue neutral bill has to pay inside the tax code. a tax cut built on a deficit model, which we did in 1997, actually uses savings around all the government. savings and reforms, getting rid of certain surplus properties. all those things are brought in. that income stream offsets -- part of the tax cuts. give a much bigger tax cut. i'm hoping republicans will go down the road with a very bold,
very exciting and dramatically lower tax rate. >> sean: i want to go back to this issue of what the president did. remember he tweeted out "james comey, i hope you don't lie. there maybe tapes." the media said oh, my gosh, did the president tape him? where the tapes? we need those tapes. i've known this president for over a couple decades now. i knew instantly that he didn't do it. i knew it. i said to him the air, on my knradio show. he was casting doubt in comey's mind. i think it had a very profound effect. d because james comey was more worried f about making. in the back of his mind, he had to think, what if there are tapes. he had to be more honest. everybody can be recorded in this time and era of the deep state under surveillance. right? >> sure. for that matter, in an age where
people have iphones and smartphones, they can simply tape on their own phone. one of the things i describe in "understanding trump" is this is a guy who automatically pushes back. one of the reasons he does so well with blue-collar workers is because they identify with that kind of toughness. comey was shoving -- his immediate instinct is to shove back. and to say, you better be very careful. after all, what if you are on tape? w i agree with you, all of a sudden, comey had to take a deep breath and think, "i better not exaggerate as much as i plan to." i never thought he taped it either. the press went crazy, of course. "i'm going to go crazy about something trump did today." i wonder what it is. they are constantly looking for junk. as we saw in the special elections, trump was actually
right. he went back to pompeo's seat in california. we are 5-0, competing with the democrats and special electionsg all this washington noise. the american people just reject it. they don't pay attention to it. they refusee to believe in it. i do want to say as a formerr member of the house, i know there are some democrats -- after having lost five in a row, they are thinking of dumping nancy pelosi. i just want to say, i hope she stays for another decade. she is so helpful for us. i really think it will be said. we would have to develop a new campaign plan. >> sean: we agree on a lot of things. i totally agree with you. i don't want to see l leave either. they need to stay exactly where they are. why do i believe that the left would probably even find somebody more extreme than her? we have to be careful with what we wish for here.
i want to stay on these tape issues and some of these revelations that came out with jeh johnson.on there is no evidence of collusion, he goes into that. then he talks about no votesn, were impacted. then he testified about on the issue -- why didn't the democrats take the offer from the dhs? why didn't they turn the computers over to the fbi? they had to be something they were hiding. why did the fbi allow them to get away with that? doesn't that raise a lot of questions in your mind? >> sure it does. jeh johnson is a very smart, very confident person. i sent him an email after his testimony saying very impressive testimony. he came in there. back in january, when this first came up, wait a second, does anybody really believe that the obama intelligence system -- the obama homeland security system and the obama fbi system were so
stupid that for six months, the russians were doing something and they didn't notice? that jeh johnson said "i was in is part of what he said. charge. none of this happened." i think what that does is it really punctures the russian balloon and makes it trivial. here's the problem. >> sean: by the way, mr. speaker, if i worked for president trump and his campaign and i thought the russians had information that would expose hillary for being a liar, and i said "can you release that, is that a crime?" >> it's not a crime but you wouldn't have said it directly to the russians. >> sean: i s don't have contact with them. you are absolutely right. >> if they have anything, feel free to let it go. you have to assume the russian ambassadors watch tv. here's the deeper point. you watch. as the russian stuff collapses, mueller will shift to other
topics. supposedly, he was appointed. precisely to go after the russian question. what we are going to discover is oh, no, theyte are now going too after other people. >> sean: they already are.oi >> i hope the house and senate judiciary committees are going to ask mueller to come in andre explain who he is hiring. why he is hiring professional democrats.nd why he is hiring headhunters. they don't have to gett into the details of the investigation, just who he is hiring. >> sean: we have to go, mr. speaker. i want to say one last thing. number one, "new york times." congratulation.. you deserve it. the book is phenomenal.

context of that interview that if, in fact, -- by removing the fbi director, he knew that was going to extend the russian investigation.e >> sean: this is important. it would extend it. he knew it would likely go longer, but he did it anyway because it was the right thing to do. >> i want to go back to the tweet for a moment. the reaction i've seen today from those on the left is saying what was really at stake here? what was really at play? this compelled james comey to and as i said before, fill in the c blank, tell the truth. he told the truth. that's not an illegal act, getting someone to tell the truth. it wasn't interfering with tanything. it was the president stating what everybody knows. with all of the intercepts and all of the intelligence unmasking -- the leaking-in-chief is james comey. the one thing we know is james comey leaked a private conversation he had with the president of the united states
