did this i tweeted about a couple days ago. >> greg: that's how manners survive. set your dvrs, never miss an episode of "the five," "hannity" is up next. >> sean: thanks to our friends on "the five." it completely crushes democrats and the destroyed trump media talking points erases some very serious new questions about the obama administration, john solomon who broke this story will be here tonight with the stunning details, also sara carter, lou dobbs are all here tonight with reaction, but first a special "hannity" into stories and the scandals that are all butts being ignored by that mainstream media but must be investigated.r this is something you will only see right here tonight on "hannity" and that's tonight's opening monologue.
john solomon and his colleague are out with a bombshell report about the russian lawyer who met with donald trump, jr., last summer. here's the headline, exclusive doj let russian lawyer into u.s. before she met with trump team. the report finds that the former attorney general allowed this russian lawyer to enter the country under extraordinary circumstances and without a visa. after a june 9th meeting with donald trump, jr., the lawyer was spotted in the front row of. the hearing of america's policies with russia. she was part of a pro-russian lobbying effort, went to event in washington. remember the act that was aattended by congressional staffers and state department officials. if this lawyer is so sinister and nefarious and whether or not it's connected to the russian government like the democrats in
the media have been trying to tell you. why did the former attorney general allowed her into the country? why did the obama administration allow her into the country? why was she allowed to attend a congressional hearing and other events with government officiald in washington, d.c.? there's also another report that says this russian lawyer has ties to the democrats. a meeting with donald trump junior to try and hurt hillary clinton's campaign doesn't make sense anymore. the lawyer says she never had any damaging information on clinton breaking another news story tonight u.s. congressman got similar approach fromar russian officials at two months for trump's son. first, our "hannity" investigation into a massive election interference scandal that the destroyed trump media is not reporting on that democrats don't want you to know about. they won't go near it, but we will continue to expose the truth until they have to cover this and tell you what's really going on.
back in january, the political published a stunning report and had this headline, ukrainian efforts to sabotage trump backfire. kiev officials scribble to makeg amends with president-elect after quietly working to boost clinton.ds her name is alexander toluca, she led the effort along with ukrainian government officials.d they wanted to help hillary clinton and try to damage donald trump during the 2016 election cycle. according to politico, he previously worked for the clinton white house and metor wh ukrainian diplomats at the ukrainian embassy to discuss ways to expose former trump campaign chairman paul manna fort and he told politico that those ukrainian diplomats were helpful when it came to finding leads for digging up dirt. then there's this shocking quote for the article. she shared her findings with
officials from the dnc and hillary clinton's campaign.gs according to that report, working with ukraine and alsopa offering up information about the clinton campaign. she also said she also said she would assist a lot of journalists in writingo stories about manna fort and they trump campaign. we reached out to her for a quick comment explosive story, she hasn't gotten back to us. there's one other thing, enough is enough when it comes to the scandal. tonight, we on this show are demanding answers. answers to questions that you the american people deserve to know about because the evidence that we have here points to a foreign power that actually did work to influence the election. the dnc operative at the center of the scandal, she needs to be put under oath. she needs to tell congress what she knew, when she knew what and who she told it to.. the same goes for the ukrainian
ambassador that she met with, maybe it's also time for debbie wasserman schultz, maybe she's to answer questions under oath aboutt chalupa's exact role. that would include a former clinton manager john podesta, he needs to be called to testifyld since his information was shared with the clinton campaign. that's not the only scandals we've been covering in searching for answers tonight here on "hannity." there is the fake news, of course the christopher steele dossier had it cited sources. that group fusion gps, they commissioned, they shopped around to the media, all that information. the democrats routinely were citing it in public to you. christopher steele the former british spy who wrote this fake document, he needs to be subpoenaed to.
he needs to be forced to talk about what he knows, when he knew it, how we obtained this information. we also need answers on the reports that the fbi, james comey offered to pay him as much as $50,000. also speaking of james comey, a he's surrounded by controversy. he may have broken the law, remember? classified government property from the fbi. he also admitted he gave one of his memos to the friend, in that case "the new york times"s" because he wanted a special counsel. that special counsel turned out to be a long time bff of james a comay, robert muller.ou this guy has more conflict of interest and we can count so it's time to start investigating the investigator.ou why did he hire hillary clinton's attorney? why did he hire obama and hillary donors. did he break the law? is he being an ethical? is he conducting an investigation for his friend james comey, the star witness?nd does not need to be a case of recusal? all the handful of investigators that are donated only two
presidential candidates, take a look at this chart. donations, $32,000, over $13,000 in the list goes on and on. can we expect people who donated this type of money to obama, toc clinton, to democrats that robert muller is now -- are they impartial? one of the lawyers working for him worked for the clinton foundation, she didn't want you to know many things, she was trying to squash freedom of information act requests. the special counsel is full of conflicts of interest, he's becoming more corrupt by the day.al it's time to expose who these people are. we've also found out that the former obama attorney general loretta lynch influence of the investigation into hillary's email server. erremember, she told james comay it's a matter, not an investigation and he listened to her.
then she met 40 minutes on the tarmac with bill clinton that happened to be days before he let hillary clinton off the hook. congress is only beginning to touch the surface on these issues and examine this, but they've got to up the urgency and to move faster. including revisiting hillary clinton email investigation, so much evidence that lynch influence the investigation. we know hillary broke the law. why? she had a top-secret, special access information. program access on the email server, that's mishandling, that's a felony, she destroyed some of it, that's a felonym combats breaking the law. hillary clinton needs to be held accountable, we're calling on that tonight. then you have the uranium one deal. as secretary of state, she was 1 of 9 people to approve the transfer of up to 20% uranium to vladimir putin the russians. people involved in that field, they kicked back as much as $145 million to the clinton foundation.si democrats and the media in the
country if they care about theto rule of law, the equal application of the rule of law, it's time to start demanding justice, time to start investigatingit these scandals d these people need to be put under oath. from circa news sarah carter is a lawyer and investigator, gregg jarrett, john solomon welcome back, good to see you. john let's go back to her investigative work here, tell us why this is so critical to all the donald trump junior hype. >> if you go back to last saturday, just days ago, the story was there was a kremlin backed lawyer who snuck into trump tower and had a secret conversation with donald trump, jr., that looked like collusion, people were using treason on monday morning. what we found out that this lawyer was part of a lobbying campaign commits a privateri attorney, a lobbying campaign that started before the donald trump meeting in march
when a congressman dana war barker was approached and carried out all the way through june when many members of congress, some state department officials, some staffers were all contacted by the same group including this lawyer to lobby about the act. this was a classic lobbying on information, no evidence of collusion or campaign event as it was originally portrayed to be. >> sean: we always talk about selective moral outrage on this program.po in the case of ukraine, you have a dnc operative who was admitting she met with foreigners, in this case ukrainian ambassador. she's admitting she passed on detrimental information to the dnc and clinton campaign.an on paper, that is far worse than any thing know about trump-russia collusion. it's basically been ignored. how bad is it, should these people be put under oath? >> i certainly think they can be
called to testify, look at thesc emails of chalupa's, see how deep it goes when political operatives are trying to get information on their opponents. it's fascinating.ep it doesn't necessarily make it illegal but it does make it very concerning when you look at the long laundry list of emails and how she's trying to gather this information and ask for the lawyer. natalia veselnitskaya. i think what's really fascinating here is she was lobbying against the act and one interesting thing we've left out is a fusion gps. was also lobbying, they came up with the dossier. against president trump. just think about that convoluted matter right there. these are all things that need to be investigated and need to be looked into. how she stayed beyond her special circumstances from january when it apparently ended
andir she asked for that extension, and how she returned back apparently from moscow sometime in early june. if you are to believe that the donald trump junior emails, she got back into the united states. >> sean: let me get pure legal analysis from you. if you're looking at facts as a lawyer and you look at the ukrainian situation, meetings with foreign entities that want to influence the election, with pay to dnc officials, information is transferred to the dnc and the hillary clinton campaign and nary a word is discussed about this by the very people that have been all over in government and the media with the trump campaign that's nonexistent. where is more evidence here? >> what's troubling is the hysteria over the donald trump junior meeting which is not
illegal in any way, shape, or form and a lack of equivalency and intention to the chalupa-hillary clinton campaign and the ukrainian embassy. i will say this, if the ukrainian government and chalupa and hillary clinton campaign colluded to undermine donald trump, that's not a crime either. it's not treason, it's not conspiracy to defraud the government, it's not collusion with only applies to antitrust. it's not a violation of election laws. in both cases, the donald trump case and the ukrainian case, it's just not against the law. the first amendment, that pesky little document provides complete defense. >> sean: i know you love that pesky little document.es >> it's a complete defense to what donald trump did. it's clear from his excellent reporting that this russian lawyer had an agenda, she pursued it under a false pretext. it was then exposed. there is no crime here.
>> sean: real quick will do a lightning round. john, where is is headed next in your opinion, and do you seeex congress that they have an obligation now to put the same focus and attention into both the dossier issue and ukrainian influence issue as they are russian? >> there's a lot of investigating going on, not all of it as of the senate intelligence committee. i would keep an eye on chuck. grassley, there's a hearing next week or some of these players are going to be somewhat were going to learn a lot that day i would think. >> sean: sarah, it seems to me it's on the tip of the icebergrg and there's only been a one-sided discussion in the country. >> i think another thing to look for is law enforcement.on the new fbi director takes his role at the fbi, there may be investigations that we haven't seen for a while we open or light being shed on those whether they have to do with hillary clinton and uranium one or whether they have to do with other deals remains to be seen. i think that something we need to look for too.or
>> sean: last word. >> the last point is an important one it does appear there is evidence that hillary clinton used her government office to confer a benefit to a foreign government in exchange for money. that if true is a crime. i do think you're right that a new investigation ought to be launched into the hillary clinton email scandal because she did what david pretorius and john deutch did, she stored classified documents at her home, that is a crime. james comey may have committed the exact same crime. >> sean: great analysis, weme will stay on these investigations with far more evidence than what the media is feeding up to you. when we come back, more reaction to this explosive report that the russian lawyer who met with donald trump, jr., last year was let into the u.s. by the obama justice department, laura ingraham is here. also later tonight, during his joint news conference,
president trump defended his son, lou dobbs has reaction. then later, we are holding washingtoned accountable. i have a message for washington republicans. get to work. this is not funny anymore. anym♪ dinner time then. dinner time now. even though dinner time has become less strict, we remain strict as ever when it comes to our standards. made with premium cuts of 100% kosher beef. hebrew national. we remain strict. when you switch to progressive. as easy as saving $600

one that keeps you connected to what matters most. >> sean: welcome back to "hannity," as the left continues there russia collusion hysteria, the hill was the first to report that the russian lawyer who met with donald trump, jr., last summer was allowed into the u.s. under extraordinary circumstances by the justicena department and the obama administration, here with reaction editor in chief, nationally syndicated rock star radio host, laura egham, how are you? >> i'm great, thanks, sean. >> sean: why did they let her in? why did they give her a special
exemption she was supposed to be out of the country by then, is that a big deal? >> i think the questions have to be asked, i'm glad chuck grassley and others are asking immigration officials how this happened. iit it isn't all that unusual for people who are legitimate lawyers are presenting clients with interest in the united states to get access to this country, however, if, in fact, this woman is connected to the russian government and is essentially acting as an agent for the russian government, i think that's a different matter. we don't know that yet. it's smart of congress to get all of the documents, especially given what we know and what you've been talking about about this fusion gps group that is a democrat funded organization, thatde she worked with. that's connected with then, dossier which included information about donald trump. we need all these questions answered, i think before people go completely hysterical on the donald trump junior case which is what cable is doing 24/7, at least ask these questions.
you want to hang his supposed d complicity with potential collaboration of russia to hurt hillary clinton, there's lots of questions about who she is and what interest she's representing with this act that froze the assetsnt of russian officials, - >> sean: let me ask you this.an between the dossier issue and obama trying to defeat db net netinyahu, i thought it was bad to try to influence elections. reporting back information from the embassy meetings from the ukrainian ambassador, it seems like there's far more evidence, nobody seems to pay attention to
it but people like us. that to me like a far bigger story with more evidence. l >> the congressional committeesd are not going to be partisan and how they look at these issues, they're going to play it straight down the middle, not going to be partisan, i keep hearing that from the senate and the house side. okay, ifif that's the case thene need to get to the bottom of miss natalia veselnitskaya's immigration status, exactly what john mccain's connection to this dossier was. we want to get to the bottom of the leaks and where the leaks are coming out of and the national security council, the leaks are coming out of the fbi, they're coming out of james comey and how he delivered memos to his friend, and delivered to "the new york times." if we want answers to all of this. if this is going to be a comprehensive report on what happened and everything in the g aftermath, it better be
comprehensive. i have my doubts. >> sean: on top of those people being put under oath, don't we need to i was asking this and less segment of gregg jarrett. don't we also need to investigate hillary clinton and james comey in the deep state and we can't have unequal application of laws in this country when we know the evidence is overwhelming and incontrovertible? >> i think we still don't know what countries were trying toro gain access to her unsecured k private server which we heard was not as secure as a regular gmail account. we know that one of her staffers or i.t. guys told her that they were very worried that someone was trying to hack into their system. well who did? who got into her system if anyone. we never got answers that and so could it have been russia, could it have been china, could it have been other bad actors?
she actually made her entire government filing system vulnerable. she willfully did that and i would say endangering potential national security in the process. she did that, that was a concerted effort that she made to keep her information separate, the clinton foundation, all of that they wanted that revolving door of access kept separate and they hoped privates.n we never really got the answers to that, did we? >> sean: such a good point, r five foreign intelligence services, got that information and the real russia conspiracy is the 145 plus million dollar kickback the sign off on her part. when we come back, lou dobbsrt joins us next with reaction to all of this left-wing media hypocrisy and also later tonight. >> i think it's funny you have enough time in the white housee are able to sit around and readd nielsen numbers. >> i get really good prep for my
team because thet white house prep team is superb. >> sean: dr. sebastian gorka and his takedown of cnn. we've got two instances to play you, we'll get reaction from joe concha my please stay with us. ♪ i kept on top of things. then the chronic, widespread pain slowed me down. my doctor said moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. he also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. woman: for some, lyrica can significantly relieve fibromyalgia pain and improve function, so i feel better. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worse depression, unusual changes in mood or behavior, swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects: dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, swelling of hands, legs and feet.

>> live from america's news headquarters i'm checking upon is in new york. a busy day in paris for president trump in the first lady. just a few hours from now they will be seated front and center in the parade. one of france's most treasured traditions. they are joined in the city of lights as guests of french president macron. another step back for the president's travel ban it just a short time ago. a federal judge in hawaii sent a list of relatives who can visit family here in the u.s. despite visa restrictions.
those restrictions apply only to travelers from six predominantly muslim nations. the new ruling will allow the grandparents, grandchildren, and some uncles to visit. in his decision, the judge's grandparents are "the epitome of close family members." now back to hannity. >> a wonderful young man, he took a meeting with the russian lawyer, not a government lawyer but a russian lawyer. i think from a practicalma standpoint most people would've taken that meeting. it's called opposition research or even research into your opponent. >> sean: that was president trump earlier today, he was in paris responded to a question about don, jr., meeting with a russian lawyer last summer, here with reaction author of the new book putin's gambit from the fox business network, lou dobbs is back with us. i just outlined in great detailt the ukrainian issue of influence.
real collusion, then of course you've got the british intel dossier, comey wanted to pay thi guy with false information he was paying for the informationhe but that's not what we hear about. what do you make of the double standard? >> the double standard is more than that i think by a long measure. this is an effort to support the administration and president donald trump. it is nothing less, it is an effort by the deep estates to roll over a dulyru elected president and a legitimate government. and to break the will of the american people. this is no longer about republicans and democrats and conservatives and liberals, this is a full on assault by the left, the democratic party to absolutely carry out a coup d'etat against president trump aided by the left-wing media. the suggestion there's collusion between trump and the russians? when we have absolute evidence
of collusion between the clinton foundation, secretary of state clinton and the russians? what does it take? >> sean: i don't know what it takes but we've had 125 deep estate leaks in 126 days. everyone of them i would say needs to be investigated for being a felony. i think the only way this works is the deep estate gets purged, obama holdovers get purged, that still has not happened. the next thing is the laws of the country that apply to every american watching us, need to apply to hillary, need to apply to comey, need to apply to attorney general lynch. anyone else whoey leaked information within the deep state, if we don't hold them accountable than it never stops. >> you're exactly right, the evidence is recent history. over the course of the last month we have watched those leaks accelerate in point of fact from the west wing, the
white house itself, instead of debates. we have a justice department, where is attorney general jeff sessions? this is a time for the attorneyne general to stand up d say this is not going to be tolerated. this is what is going to occur. we are opening investigations into the clinton foundation and 20% of uranium production that was transferred to the russians, that's collusion. >> sean: but the question is i don't know any other antidote than to purge the deepp state to apply the law equally. if you don't, then you are giving license for all of this to continue. >> i do think we should apply the law equally but just to apply the law of randomly to democrats would be such a massive improvement, an order of magnitude better than what we
have now. we have president trump being investigated by a special counsel and there isn't even a crime called collusion.st bob mueller doesn't have any basis in legal -- >> sean: were going to have investigative creep, he's going to use hillary's attorney to go further and further. >> it's interesting to hear the narrative changing. the this is going to be the new. normal for two or three years as the trump administration is f investigative. they are saying that. >> sean: four years. they will be four. >> think you're right. it should be stopped here. >> sean: lou dobbs on our sister network, thank you, sir. when we come back on this busyn: breaking newsnight, right here on "hannity." >> you've heard reporting there's bunker mode, i want you to comment on that. >> absolutely, it's laughable. >> sean: sebastian gorka beat down of cnn and cnn, continues
their smear campaign. we will play it for you and we will get reaction from joe concha and jones. >> number one, repeal and replace i am sitting in the oval office waiting for our senators to give it to me.um >> sean: the american people elected you to do a job, get to work. i have a message for you tonight, and will hold washington accountable ♪ le insurance with geico! goin' up the country. love mom and dad' i'm takin' a nap. dude, you just woke up! ♪ ♪ i'm goin' up the country, baby don't you wanna go? ♪ ♪ i'm goin' up the country, baby don't you wanna go? ♪

bass pro shops. your adventure starts here. >> sean: welcome back to "hannity," the so-called journalists over at fake news cnn, they have been wall-to-wall anti-trump coverage, they can't stop it's like a drug to them. last night, the deputy assistant to the president our friend dr. sebastian gorka went into the belly of the beast and completely owned anderson cooper. if you haven't seen it it's much watch tv, take a look. >> you've heard reporting there's a bunker mode since news about donald trump, jr., bro, i want you to comment on that. >> absolutely, it's laughable. your chiron talked about the crisis, your reporter talked about a bunker mentality. i work in the west wing, i work in the white house, it is absolutely nothing of the kind. i know you want salacious, sensational coverage for your ratings so your corporate sponsors will have more money,
but that's not media, that's not reportage. it's just fake news. >> i'm going to nor the insults because i don't think it gets it anywhere. >> is not about you it's about actually having journalism back on tv. let's let the viewers judge to decide that you are now 13 to place and national ratings behind nick at night which is on at 11. >> sean: by the way, they are losing to yogi bear reruns. here's another exchange that he had with our former colleague allison cammarata who now works at cnn, this is tough to watch, take a look.. >> the amount of time you spend a desperation on a topic that has plummeted to you to 13th place in viewership ranking across america, more peoplee watch nick at night cartoons than cnn. >> if you want to go there, a ratings are doing just fine, ratings represent if people are interested in the spirit of >> sean: here with reaction,
kia jones. it just so happens dr. gorka is right, hey, boo, boo, let's get a picnic basket. he's out rating cnn. it's just ay, fact. >> reruns are doing better than anderson cooper. >> sean: what do you think of the exchange? >> i think it's good, i thinke that gorka is doing great. going after the narrative of what they are trying to do. we need to discredit the fact that this is fakewh news. the only way to do that is to show the numbers. let's show really what's going on. this whole narrative of donald trump, jr., and the russians saying hillary clinton has done things with our uranium, 20% at $140 million, tens of millions of dollars going into the clinton
foundation and those are facts. is anyone investigating that? who even gave the story to "the new york times"s" about donald trump junior? >> sean: joe, what's your take, you do stand apart. you're not a part of the humpty dumpty cabal on twitter and social media and you stand independent. what is your take on it objectively. >> in terms of the gorka exchange, he was taking issue with the cnn report about the white house being in a bunker mentality. here's where the white house has been in terms of a bunker mentality over the last couple of days. you have the press conference -- the president doing a joint press conference with the president of france. you have interviews with reuters and cnn yesterday, you have kellyanne conway doing multiple interviews across the spectrum. in terms of interviews on abc, cbs, nbc and obviously gorka has been active as well. here's where i took issue with that interview.
he at one point scolded sebastian gorka and said i'm going to ignore the insults because i don't think it gets us anywhere. in the post interview analysis, after gorka was off that interview where he couldn't defend himself, anderson cooper who is the face of that network in the highest-paid person there who should act like a professional called gorka the hungarian don rickles. that's is where things are getting personal, it's no longer about anything else but holding an insult or a guy can't defend himself. if you're going to insult somebody, don't bring up don rickles he just died three months ago, he was beloved. find another example.ul >> sean: remember when he said to my friend jeffrey lord, are they able to recover their brand? you know a lot about branding. >> i don't know. anderson cooper, he's a vanderbilt. his narrative and the amount of money h that he has made
predispute and i'm talking about the cnn brand. >> come on, maybe he can help them out financially because they're going down. >> sean: that's probably true. does jeff zucker survive considering he's driven this network into the ground? >> i think the advertising revenue is still pretty good, 13th in total viewership is not where you want to be, you don't want to be trailing episodes of full house which is a show that came on the year 30 years ago, they're going to have to turn things around quickly. just doing that kind of reportage instead of focusing on one topic so much. harvard studies showed 93% of all coverage on cnn is negative toward the trump administration, that is a number you cannot spend. >> sean: will take a break, the sub next tonight ontr "hannity." >> number one repeal and replace, am sitting in the oval office with a pen in hand waiting for our senators to give it to me. >> sean: the president is

draft was released by senate republicans, will g.o.p. lawmakers finally after seven years uphold their promise and repeal and replace obamacare. tonight we're holding washington accountable, it is a subject of tonight's monologue. the majority leader in the senate mitch mcconnell has canceled recess and he says he may vote on the bill next week, i'll believe it when i see it. senator ted cruz said he will support the bill as long as it drives down the cost of premiums, that's key. will that happen? some of the key provisions and revisions to the released billpr included billions of dollars to combat opiate addiction, additional funding for insurers, it also allows premiums to be paid with pretax health savings accounts, that's important andp some senators are still skeptical. that this revamped lead domestic legislation will even see the
light of day. before it was released, here's senator john mccain, that guy involved in the dossier thing? is what he said earlier. >> it should have gone through the committees of oversight so that the democrats had a role to play and then we probably could've gotten this thing done. now i think prospects are dim. but it is what it is. >> sean: republican senator susan collins went a step further and vowed not to support the bill. she tweeted out deep cuts in medicaid in the senate bill,po will vote no on a motion to proceed ready to work with the g.o.p. and democratic colleagues to fix the flaws in the aca. remember, these are the same pathetic weak republicans, spineless republican senators they vowed to completely repeal and replace obamacare. they said give us the house in 2010, give us the senate in 2014.ve
give us the presidency in 2016, will get this done, remember? >> there's only one way to truly fix obamacare, only one way. that is a full repeal. a full repeal, that's been our goal from the start, that's our goal now and we plan to achieve it. n n >> it's clear that any serious attempt to improve our health care system must begin with full repeal and replacement of obamacare, a mission i remain fully committed to fighting on behalf of the people of arizona. >> repealing obamacare is poorlm crafted and misguided mandatesfi and replacing the law with a fiscally responsible reform bill that contains costs and provides more choices is the best path forward. >> you can't repair this monstrosity you've got to tear it down and start all over again? >> how do you get to that point? >> when they lose elections. >> you think that's key, from
that point they have a different strategy? >> the ones that survive in 2016 are up in 2017 are going toey he a different attitude?if >> sean: if you can't replaceha it, repeal it, you have no excuses left. you have the house, the senate, the presidency. president trump had this t to sy about the bill in an interview with pat robinson yesterday. >> number one, repeal and replace. i am sitting in the oval office with a pen in hand waiting for our senators to give it to me. for years, we've been talkingth about repeal, replace, i think they passed up to 61 times repeal and replace., that didn't mean anything because you had the minority, the republicans they didn't have the majority so it wasn't going to get to the president and if it ever did obama wasn't going to sign it. now we have a president that is waiting to sign it. >> sean: 61 times, i have a message for all of you in washington. you cannot give up on repealing
the affordable care act. you made us a promise, the american people for seven years. you guaranteed you to end obamacare, you assured all of us you would develop a health care bill that actually works for the american people. stop your whining, roll up your sleeves, put your egos aside, get it done. you are elected to lead, make tough decisions.s. get this thing over the finish line and do it for the american people. o stop with the vacations, they didn't elect you to capitulate and whine and complain and fall down on your face. this is pathetic, do your job. up next, on "hannity." >> if the mainstream media wants to bring up emails, let's bring up hillary clinton's 30,000 emails, you forgot to mention it now. >> sean: social media gets the last word as he has all week, tonight with us. straight ahead.
