that's about it for us tonight. tune in at every night at 8:00 for a show that hates lying and smugness. good night from washington. sean hannity is right now. >> sean: thank you, tucker. great show. welcome to "hannity." major breaking news. no evidence, none of trump-russia collusion. that is the major finding from the house intelligence committee. that is withhe republican ending this phase of the russia investigation. this confirms everything we have been telling you. yet, the media, the democrats have been flat-out lying for over a year. and they have created a russia collusion conspiracy theory all in an effort to delegitimize and smear president trump. republicans on the intel committee are also finding that president obama did nothing to counter russian election interference and he was warned for years and vladimir putin did not have a preference for then candidate trump. also tonight, and this is a massive development, sarah
carter reporting that sources confirming to the show the house intel committee has evidence showing former obama director of national intelligence james clapper allegedly leaked information to cnn about president trump and president obama being briefed about the fake news dossier. what did obama know? when did he know it? trump unloads on the democratic media at a raucous rally in pennsylvania. tonight in "hannity" exclusive, mike pence will react to the massive fisa abuse scandal. tonight, we have a package bomb killing a teenager and wounding two women in austin, texas. we will update you throughout the hour on the very scary story as part of tonight's breaking news opening monologue. ♪ >> sean: all right. major developments. this is a big night tonight in the russia investigation. now the big breaking news, the house intel committee has now
ended what has been a 14-month investigation in this phase of the russian probe. is starting to release details of what it has uncovered. in this particular case on collusion. we still have fisa abuse, uranium one, unmasking scandal and the clinton bought and paid for dossier. this is not included tonight. the take-away from the house intel committee zero evidence -- let me repeat. none. no evidence showing collusion between the trump campaign and russia. i hope robert mueller and his merry band of the democratic partisans and donors and witch hunters are all watching tonight. their investigation should be shut down immediately. the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein needs to be investigated. we will explain that. he is rushing to mueller's defense saying that the special counsel is "not an unguided missile." rosenstein is trying to cover himself because the new information proves that mueller is in and has been in a giant witch hunt. also tonight the media, the
democrats, this is what you have to take away from this. this has been going on for nearly 18 months. they have been lying to you. they have perpetuated one of the biggest hoaxes in american history. we'll have more in a minute. hear this. other key findings from the members on the house intel committee, there is a pattern of russian attack against america's key allies in europe. russian hackers use social media. in 2015, 2016 as well have been telling you to sow political discord in the united states. obama did nothing to stop this though he was warned it was happening. the committee agrees with the intelligence community overall assessment on the russian interference and they find putin did not have a preference for candidate donald trump. congressional republicans are also making very clear -- this part is important -- the only part of the investigation that is closed regarding russia
collusion. that is it. they will still be probing what is unresolved issue with fisa abuses and the clinton bought and paid for phony russian dossier. sara carter will join us reporting and the other sources are confirming to the show an explosive revelation about the former obama former director of national intelligence james clapper who allegedly leaked to fake news cnn that president obama was briefed about the phony dossier. they are saying that clapper was in contact with tapper at the same time that cnn published report about president-elect trump and president obama being briefed about the dossier. if you will remember, this created a huge massive
firestorm. this led to the breathless trump conspiracy theory that they have been pushing ever since. sources are telling us tonight that clapper was either cnns original source or the con personalling source about the report on the dossier. what is even more pathetic and more sleazy is that after allegedly leaking information to cnn, well, clapper then put out a statement in january of 2017 that reads in part this everything i had the opportunity to speak with president-elect trump to discuss recent media reports about our briefing last friday. i express my profound dismay at the leaks that have been appearing in the press. we both agree they are extreme liquor roseive and damage -- extremely corrosive and damaging to national security. clapper was lying to his teeth. he was one of the leakers. since then the former director of national intelligence has been doing everything and anything possible to prop up the phony clinton bought and
paid for dossier. watch this. >> with respect to the dossier itself, the key thing is it doesn't matter who paid for it. it's what the dossier said and they the extent of which is corroborated or not. >> sean: we reached out to james clapper for a statement. he works for fake news cnn on sara's report and his spokesperson declined to comment but he noted it appears to be about leaking information that was not classified or sensitive. so clapper is not outright denying it which tells you everything you need to know. we have for over a year been out here an island to ourselves as we have been uncovering this scandal and telling you as shocking as what is being exposed is only the tip of the iceberg. the house intelligence committee, 14 months, still conducting very important investigation. they had nothing to do with donald trump. but they do have to do with unmasking at an unprecedented
level of the fisa law and fisa abuses and the clinton bought and paid for fake news dossier. this is the beginning. you have been lied to for over a year. now to the other key findings from the republicans on the house intel committee. they prove what we have been telling you for over a year that the media and the democrats lied to you. there is no trump russia collusion. take a look at this disgraceful coverage as means of remembering what we have been saying. >> a dizzying 24 hours in the russia investigation. no longer just inching toward the president, this morning it's more likely careening. >> i think this is potentially more dangerous situation than watergate. we are at a very dangerous moment. we are looking at the possibility that the president of the united states and those around him during election campaign colluded with a hostile foreign power to undermine the basis of our democracy. >> donald trump is afraid. political hurricane is out there at sea for him.
we will call it "hurricane vladimir" if you will. the russian thing. >> this is outright treason. there is no question what he is doing is giving aid and comfort to the enemy. >> they said election hacking is at the caliber of a pro harbor or 9/11. do you agree? >> i completely agree with that. >> donald trump now sits at the threshold of impeachment. >> sean: the only thing that had anything to do russia was hillary. her bought and paid for russian dossier. anyone with half a brain could see there is no collusion. now tonight the media in this country should be apologizing to you the american people for predding outright lie -- spreading outright lies, misinformation and propaganda for a year. the democrats are in the same boat of the media. they look like complete and total and utter fools tonight. leading the way is the ranking
democrat on the house intel committee. that would be congressmen i want to work at fake news conspiracy tv msnbc adam schiff. take a look at this painful and this pathetic evolution on the so-called trump russia collusion we now know never happened and doesn't exist. >> chris, unfortunately, i can't go into the evidence. >> you had something hard that you can't reveal? >> i can't reveal that, chris. >> of course, there is one thing to say there is evidence. there is another thing to say we can prove this or prove it beyond a reasonable doubt or there is enough evidence to bring to a grand jury for purposes of criminal indictment. >> i don't think we can say anything definitively at this point. we are still at the very early stage of the investigation. >> last march, you said you had more than circumstantial evidence of treasons you collusion withsh treasonous collusion with russia. be specific. i think americans have a right to know a year later what that
is. >> i certainly said that there is ample evidence of collusionment i never used the word "treason." if you look at the facts in the domain, they are pretty damning. >> sean: that's it? the evidence of the public -- you have no evidence. schiff knew the entire time will was no collusion. yet he went on tv, some 250 times, since the inauguration and lied his face off. congressman schiff is the epitome of the left wing partisan hack. then president obama, like we have been telling you, house intel committee republicans are finding out well he did nothing to stop russian election interference. now congressman devin nunes, he started warning then president obama about russian and election interference in 2014. obama ignored every single warning sign. here is the headline from nunes, op-ed he wrote in the
"washington times" and he writes the bear out there. okay. that means russia. the house intel chair goes on to detail the direct threat posed by putin and the russians. this is 2014. what is worse, while the russian interference was beginning to happen and was happening, obama just before the election tried to shame then candidate donald trump, telling him to stop whining about an election possibly being rigged because that could never happen. remember this? >> there is no serious person out there who would suggest that you could even rig america's elections. in part because they are so decentralized. and the numbers of votes involved. there is no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances in which it will happen this time. i'd advise mr. trump to stop
whining and try to make a case to get votes. >> sean: no serious person could ever believe it. until hillary lost and you needed a big excuse. then we'll believe it. democrats should be ashamed of themselves tonight. all of this new information is revealing what they really, really are all about. total frauds, partisan hacks. they don't care what they put the country through for what? 18 months now. democrats had the opportunity, obama had the opportunity to stop russia. and then after their candidate lost, oh, it couldn't happen but it did happen. then it was about delegitimizing and smearing president trump to divert attention away from what really happen even though obama said it could never happen. the truth is all coming out. this is only the start. i told you this was the year of the boomerang. there is a lot that still needs to be investigated. we will stay on it. i will be investigated. we know the obama administration, we know they were unmasking members of the trump campaign at an
unprecedented level. of course, trump campaign associates. then, of course, as the trump bought and paid for dossier. we still need to get to the truth on that. hillary clinton didn't care about paying for false information, russian government lies to influence an election. the f.b.i. took that completely unverified dossier. they have a legal and an ethical and protocol obligation to do it themselves. they lied to a fisa judge. they never verified. they never verified or corroborated or told the judge that clinton paid it. remember the grassily-graham memo, the dossier that made up the bulk of the fisa application. the former assistant f.b.i. director testified no dossier, there wouldn't have been a fisa application. they never verified. they never checked. they didn't care. this is the biggest abuse of power scandal in the history of the country. the biggest corruption scandal
and it's only beginning. sit tight and be patient. i know for a fact more information is coming. now also breaking tonight in a "hannity" exclusive, the vice president mike pence is reacting to several major breaking news stories. here is what the vice president had to say about combating russian election interference. take a look. >>
vice president pence: -- >> the russians wanted discourse and i want your thoughts on a day and age that everything is digital and on the computers and somebody could be on an office anywhere in the world to try to interrupt what is going on in the country. >> vice president pence: what is clear now is that russian individuals and elements and maybe other countries sought to in your words so discord in this election. particularly, using the internet to do it. that is one of the reasons why a variety of agencies in our administration are taking dramatic steps to see to it, that it does not happen again.
we will continue to support efforts to hold the individuals to the fullest account of the law. >> sean: now i also asked the vice president about the growing fisa abuse scandal. here is what he said on that issue. andrew mccabe, the former f.b.i. director said no dossier and no application for fisa warrant. it played a big role. they didn't tell the court that in fact hillary clinton's campaign paid for it. and then they tried to cob rate it but -- corroborate but the same source adding yahoo! news article and it was deceptive toward the court. the issue of fisa abuse is front and center. does it sound like fisa abuse to you? does it sound like fisa abuse? >> vice president pence: we will know when all the facts are out. the american people have a right to know. whatever the mechanism is for that, i think it is important. if there were actions take than were inconsistent with the fisa courts or in other
respects relative to the law they need to be addressed
and they need to be fully vetted. >> sean: we will have more of the exclusive interview with the vice president coming up later tonight. but first, president trump also this week, he eviscerated, absolutely eviscerated and rightly so a lying liberal mainstream media at a massive rally this weekend in pennsylvania. the media, well, they have been trying to utterly destroy the president. just like always he is refusing to back down. instead he is firing back. vintage donald trump. a big media takedown. take a look. >> president trump: washington, d.c., got a lot of evil there. but we're getting it out. step by step. a lot of evil. a lot of bad people. a lot of bad people. a lot of fake media. look at them. fake media. it's 1999. i'm on "meet the press." a show now headed by sleepy eyes chuck todd. a certain anchor on cnn, fake
as hell cnn. the ratings are lousy, by the way. and compared to fox, their ratings -- nbc is perhaps worse than cnn. i have to tell you. and msnbc is horrible. everybody there is laughing and having a great time. i'm joking about president for life. a couple of them went back. "donald trump with his dictatorial attitude now wants to be president for life." fake news. >> sean: fake news, lying news, propaganda news, misinformation news. it's all true. the media apoplectic after being called out for the extreme bias. they started to trash president trump. there is a reason why you the american people do not trust the fake news media. you should not. they have an agenda. it's clear. it's obvious. it's transparent. and the president is not going to let them get away with it longer. in 2007 i said journalism is
dead. it has been for years. tonight we have more proof. look at the recent column for "the guardian." the former "new york times" editor jill abram shows her liberal bias writing, "it's easy to look at what is happening in d.c. in despair. that is why i carry a plastic obama doll in my purse. i pull him out every now and then and remind myself that the united states had a progressive african-american president until very recently. some people find this strange." you think? "you have to take comfort where you can find it in donald trump's america." really? an obama comfort doll. we have to get one to chris matthews asap. he can get thrills up his leg. first joining us to react to the top story. the house intel member chris stewart and fox news contributor jason chaffetz. congressman, stewart, i look
at the revelations and it is spectacular stunning. 14 months. no evidence of collusion. no evidence of collusion, coordination, conspiracy between the trump campaign and the russians. none. zero. zip. >> it has been a long time. 15 months. we inteviewed like 73 witnesses and looked at 310,000 documents. you know, this can't surprise anyone. it can't. how long have you been saying that? how long have i and others been saying it? dianne feinstein said this. james clapper said this. i challenge mr. schiff who seems to think that there is a secret evidence that he can't reveal. two things on that. does anyone in the world believe if there was evidence of collusion that it would not have been leaked under the circumstances that we have seen? of course it would. you would already know about it. the second thing, this is an important point, sean, we have been accusing people of
conspiracy and treason. at the end of the day, these people are innocent. aren't these others who oppose what the republicans said on this. aren't they willing to come toward and say you know maybe we got it wrong? it's not fair to keep a cloud over them when there isn't evidence. >> well said. >> sean: i will read again. no evidence of collusion, coordination, conspiracy between the trump campaign and the russians. then it goes on "how anti-trump research made its way from russian sources to the clinton campaign" -- that is the dossier -- "and problematic contact between the senior intelligence community officials and the media." in other words they lied and leaked and provided misinformation to the american media that ran with all of it. >> well, adam schiff has proved he is a political hack at the highest level. he is an embarrassment to the united states congress and an embarrassment to the intelligence committee. it's shameful what he has done. the second part is the only
thing that, you know, we actually have evidence of is that hillary clinton tried to rig the election against bernie sanders. then she goes out and spends millions and millions of dollars working with the russians to develop a fake dossier that makes its way and is treated as if it's the gospel. it was abused along the way. >> sean: congressman, the irony is, even in the last two weeks, all of a sudden schiff changed his tune. he knows he has been lying for over 14 months. how are we to deal with people who are willing to drag the country through the mud to advance their lie and their narrative? >> there are a couple of points. one at the end of the day, the american people are not stupid and they can look at the evidence or the look of evidence and draw their own conclusion. then when they hear others say no, no, no, trust me, trust me, there is evidence, we just can't share it with you. i think they began to be
suspicious at a minimum and begin to reflect back on the individuals who do that. once again, sean, look, in your monologue, there was so much to talk about. my heavens we could spend hours on that. but the important point now is this. what did the f.b.i., what did the d.o.j. do? were they acting ethically? were they acting legally? and others along that line. as you said, this investigation has got some other very important points we need to pursue. and i think we owe that to the american people to not just end here but in a practical way and nondramatic way and nonpartisan way to continue with the questioning as well. >> sean: i have to run. we are going to break down this week on the show the anatomy of a 14, 18-month lie. thank you, both. you have been amazing. we have so much more. no evidence. trump-russia collusion. more on the breaking knew information. dangerous situation in austin,
texas, involving three separate bomb attacks. sara carter on her report coming up. more ahead and gregg jarrett. or you could experience it for real at the lexus command performance sales event. lease the 2018 es 350 for $339 a month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. the more you know the the commute is worth it.me, for all the work you pour into this place,
you sure get a lot more out of it. you and that john deere tractor... so versatile, you can keep dreaming up projects all the way home. it's a longer drive. but just like a john deere, it's worth it. nothing runs like a deere. now you can own a 1e sub-compact tractor for just $99 a month. learn more at your john deere dealer.
>> sean: this is a fox news alert. the top story, the republicans on the house intel committee wrapped up the investigative phase of the russian probe. tonight they released their conclusion. none, zero, zip, no collusion between the trump campaign and russia. joining us now fox news contributor sara carter and fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. start with you on the number one, we have known it. but the media kept pushing it. you notice when schiff, the last two times he has been interviewed, "oh, the --" no. the evidence was already out
there. dianne feinstein, joe manchin, even maxine waters said smoke, no fire. >> there was never any evidence of collusion. it was always a hoax. the f.b.i. knew this. but nevertheless, they tried to be really clever. they launched a counterintelligence probe that gave them more latitude. they used that as a pretext to investigate donald trump as a criminal and his associates. all of these accusations by the media and democrats with the hair on fire amounted to nothing. carter page giving a speech in moscow. the trump tower meeting with the russian lawyer. bar talk with papadopoulos. >> sean: hearsay. four-way. all of these things are not crimes. collusion in a political campaign is not criminal. it's not a crime to talk to a russian. these are all normal interactions that occur if you
are a u.s. senator, jeff sessions, or you have contacts with the foreign governments in political campaigns. it was never collusion criminal. >> sean: i want to ask in a minute about rod rosenstein. >> sure. >> sean: his message tonight ticks me off. but let me go to sara carter. the other aspect of what we are learning from the house intel committee that the former director of national intelligence james clapper leaked to cnn and feigns outrage about the leaks to trump and the news media when he is the leaker. >> well, it appears that there was some sort of collusion. not with russia but with people in the obama administration and thepedia. part of that -- obama administration and the media. it was discovered in the 14-month investigation. they say there is overwhelming evidence to support the fact that clapper did speak to cnn prior to tapper publishing the story on cnn and actually going on air with it. you know, so, this is what is
interesting. it was about the briefing that was given by the senior level obama administration officials including clapper. it included john brennan and others like mike rogers and james comey about the dossier. as soon as that became public and cnn, the rest of the media which had ignored the dossier since the summer of 2016 because they were too afraid to publish it because it was salacious, all of a sudden jumped on board and said wow! there must be something here because cnn reported about the briefing conducted between president-elect trump and obama and ran with it. it was a snowball effect and propagated the disinformation that the russians said things in the dossier about president trump. >> sean: unbelievable. let me go to you gregg jarrett. this is rod rosenstein. he in my opinion, his relationships with comey and mccabe and others must now be brought out in the daylight. rosenstein comes out tonight,
ah, the special counsel is not an unguided missile. i don't believe there is any justification at this point for terminating the special counsel. why? because now they can set perjury traps? now that there is no russia-trump collusion? let's move to the finances of oh, jared kushner. like where was that in the original mandate or investigation? investigative creep is the biggest problem with the special counsels. >> it was. and rosenstein wrote it in his appointment assignment to robert mueller. he also violated the special counsel law when he selected robert mueller. you have to, if you read the law carefully you have to have evidence of a crime. there was never any evidence of a crime. yet, he appointed a special counsel to investigate in search of a crime. that is backwards. >> sean: because of his buddy, james comey, who you think is the most foolish man on earth to be going on a book
tour. >> absolutely. >> sean: i agree with you. >> if he is asked tough questions and he answers them honestly he could be prosecuted. >> sean: i think we already have enough information on him and n violations of law. you agree? >> i absolutely agree with that. i think he obstructed justice in the hillary clinton case. then the documents and he leaked them to the media. that is a crime. >> sean: unbelievable. this is the biggest abuse of power and the entire media in this country and every one of the lying adam schiff democrats have been lying. now, i want to go back to the report tonight, sara carter, if i may read from this. okay. no evidence of collusion, coordination, conspiracy between the trump campaign and the russians. how anti-trump research, i.e., dossier, made its way from russian sources to the clinton campaign and problematic contact which we were talking about, leaks with the intelligence community and the media.
okay. the biggest problem that they discovered as far as russia was clinton's dossier, that she paid for and was used as the bulk of evidence for the fisa warrant against the trump campaign in lead up of the election. >> that is absolutely true, sean. that is a crucial point they make in the one-page draft is the fact that the russian, information from russia made its way to the clinton campaign. made its way to the dossier and did exactly what vladimir putin had hoped it would do. when you think of the disinformation campaign, it would wild. it spread across the news media. everybody was propagating what the russians wanted, to sow chaos and discord. in effect it was the clinton campaign unwittingly, possibly, spreading this, these lies and the disinformation. >> sean: wait a minute. i'm not going to allow that. from my perspective, the f.b.i. never verified it. by law if they present to a
fisa court, they must verify. by their own procedures and protocol, they are supposed to verify it. fusion g.p.s. never verified it. f.b.i. never verified it. >> you are right. they did spread that. that is wittingly inside the united states. i'm saying that the information that they were collecting, no one did the due diligence here. particularly, the f.b.i. i want to go back to a statement you made with gregg about comey. i spoke to the senior f.b.i. officials today and one of the things they stated over and over again is if comey isn't investigated, then there is a problem here because this should be a balance of justice he leaked information. he leaked the classified memos. nobody knows when he took the memos from the f.b.i. he leaked them. they went into the media. so there is another leaker. not just clapper. comey as well. unwitting and witting use of the dossier. >> he said underoath he never leaked anything to media.
then, of course, we learn later by his own admission he leaked to the media. >> sean: but there is so much more. they were very clear. i talked to my sources and i know sara talked to her sources, be clear here. this doesn't include unmasking or the dossier. this doesn't include the corrupt uranium one deal. this is but the small, this is a small sliver. what i'm trying to understand is how we got to a point in this country where lies can literally run this rampant and be this corrupt at the highest level of the f.b.i., the intel community and our government. and the democrats, they spread these lies. >> because the obama administration for eight years was enabling this and protecting people. i'll give you an example. james clapper, a known liar. he lied to congress. then he got caught. >> sean: what if i lied to congress? >> he should have been charged with perjury but the obama
administration protected him. and now we learn today through sara that he appears to be the leaker. >> sean: the big question for america tonight. now that we know everything. it's all coming to fruition. will we in this country follow the rule of law or will we have a duel justice system? >> this is why you need a second special counsel. >> sean: i got to break. sorry. get the last word. >> sean, we would have never known about this had president trump not been elected. think about that. >> sean: that is the great irony. thank you, both. you have been amazing. i know we have all taken heat for this. we have all been right from the get-go. there is so much more to come. i told you this would be the year of the boomerang. another major story we're following, hillary clinton just can't give it up. she is apparently still bitter, still making excuses while she lost the election. this time to a foreign audience in india. listen to one of the reasons why she thinks some women voted for donald trump. >> we do not do well with
white men. the republican party and a an ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should. >> sean: i wonder how much she got paid for that speech? she also blasted president trump and called his voters "racist." really? watch. >> it's commonly said that countries deserve the government they get. does america deserve donald trump? what's gone wrong? >> i have to say no, we did
not deserve that. his campaign "make america great again" was looking backwards. you didn't like black people getting rights. you don't women getting jobs. you don't want to see that indian-american succeeding more than you are. whatever your problem is, i'm going to solve it. >> sean: anger, bitter, sore loser who paid for russian government propaganda and lies and still lost. now the host michelle malkin investigates. fox news, national security strategist sebastian gorka. only in as much, michelle, that i want to talk about hillary, the only thing we are learning tonight is in fact her campaign, how in fact i'll read it directly, how anti-trump research made its way from russia sources to the clinton campaign. in other words, to lie to the american people. >> yes, that is right. the stretchry and the anti-american sentiment that drove hillary clinton and bill
clinton for that matter all of these years bubbled up, now she is overseas trashing america. in particular, american women for the loss that only falls on her shoulder. thank you, blamery. blamery. that is her name. that is who she is. as if we don't already have the longest droppedly list of all the people she is blamed other than herself for her loss and her betrayal. fox is on the list. sexism, raceism, misogyny. didn't we just go through international women's day? here she is trashing all of america's women for being brainwashed somehow. what about our free will. what about our choices? what about our desire for our families to have america that
is great again? >> sean: you are right. dr. gorka, this is a massive development tonight. after 14 months, 14 and muller is still on the job. rosenstein saying it doesn't matter. going on. the special counsel is not an unguided missile. yes, it is. it's out of control with the clinton donors, obama donors, no evidence of the trump-russia collusion. the media lied, democrats lied. they said it and people still report it. how can it happen in this country? >> sean, the most important thing to remember is that this is what we knew would happen all along. you knew it because you had that gut sense because of all the amazing work the team is doing. i knew it because back last summer the president told me in the oval office they will never find anything because there is nothing. this is the ultimate boomerang. a boomerang the d.n.c.
launched, the left launched about donald trump and his administration -- >> sean: wait, obama said it could never happen. he said no serious person would ever believe it. until, of course, hillary lost. >> but let's translate. let's translate what we now know. this is the ultimate information operations campaign. vladimir putin managed to place russian disinformation, lies, about a presidential candidate in to the u.s. system through hillary clinton, through her lawyer, through the d.n.h. into the justice -- through the d.n.c. in the justice system so it landed in front of the fisa court judge. that's the enormity of what we are talking about. >> sean: 40 seconds, michelle malkin. the worst part is they knew from the beginning and the only person that gave us russian lies in themca pain was hillary. >> hillary clinton. that is right. the clinton cash machine that
has benefited so greatly from betraying american values and betraying american law for that matter. why isn't hillary clinton and the d.n.c. as the conduit for the information, why aren't they facing indictments and prosecutions? you know we heard the mantra "lock her up" over the campaign. >> sean: heard it this weekend. >> that is right. now we need to hear it again and again and louder until it happens. >> sean: thank you. >> the truth shall come out. >> sean: a big night. we have more on the anatomy of lies. when i come back, the exclusive interview with mike pence. touch is how we communicate with those we love, but does psoriasis ever get in the way? embrace the chance of 100% clear skin with taltz. for people with moderate to severe psoriasis, up to 90% had a significant improvement of their psoriasis plaques. with taltz, 4 out of 10 even achieved completely clear skin.
don't use if you're allergic to taltz. before starting, you should be checked for tuberculosis. taltz may increase risk of infections and lower your ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you have an infection, symptoms, or received a vaccine or plan to. inflammatory bowel disease can happen with taltz, including worsening of symptoms. serious allergic reactions can occur. ready for a chance at 100% clear skin? ask your doctor about taltz. try it for as little as $5 a month.
the ruse probe. they conclude no evidence of trump russia collusion in the 2016 election. we have been lied to all this time. earlier today, prior to the report, i sat down with the vice president mike pence for exclusive interview and i asked the vice president about california refusing to enforce federal immigration laws, joy behar attacking his faith and more. take a look.
you have sanctuary cities and now a sanctuary state of california. the president expected to go to california tomorrow. then you have defiant oakland mayor who is tipping off illegal, criminal illegal immigrants that i.c.e. and border are coming their way. what should happen? the attorney general went so far to say they will use every tool they have against the oakland mayor. is that a crime in your view? is that obstruction of justice? >> vice president pence: we are a nation of laws, sean. all of us take the oath of office to serve at every level. take an oath to the constitution of the united
states. and for state officials to the constitution of that state. i mean to have an elective mayor in oakland, california, saying they are not going to uphold the law on the united states of america. >> sean: worse, helping people who have broken the law. >> vice president pence: look, the mayor's actions are disgraceful on a couple of levels. she is setting aside her oath of office to uphold the law of the land and the rule of law. secondly, i spoke to the attorney general about this. the majority of informations targeted -- the majority of the individuals targeted by i.c.e. had a criminal record. so for the mayor of oakland to warn them in advance of the actions by i.c.e. personnel put the law enforcement officers at risk. this is utterly unacceptable. we need to fix broken immigration system. we need to fix the system to put american citizens and american workers first. we can do that. the answer is not the civil disobedience that we see in
municipal governments and state of california that are simply saying we going to set aside a recognition, federal law, because we disagree with it. we ask for leaders to respect the rule of law and put the safety and the security of law enforcement personnel first. >> sean: you have an incident, the comments made by joy behar of "the view" where said she called you privately to apologize. tell us what happened. she didn't say it publicly. the initial comments were made publicly. >> my christian faith is the most important thing in my life. my wife and i spend most mornings, a little bit of time on the bible and a little bit of time in prayer.
we are typical americans. tens of millions of americans cherish their faith. so, when i heard that abc had a program where my christian faith was described as a mental illness, i thought it was important for me to speak out. not on my own behalf. we know the criticism comes with the public life. i wanted to defend the faith of millions of americans against that kind of slander. and i did so. i give joy a lot of credit. she picked up the phone. she called me. she was very sincere. and she apologized. one of the things my faith teaches me is grace. forgive as you have been forgiven. >> sean: so does mine but i'm not as good as it as you. >> vice president pence: i said of course, i forgive you. that is part of my faith experience. but i did encourage her and i am still encouraging her to use the form of the -- forum
of that program or another forum to apologize to ten of millions of americans who were equally offended. >> sean: she makes me question the sincerity of it. it wasn't just a shot against you. it was against -- i'm a christian -- anybody of faith. >> vice president pence: for me, it was never about me. >> sean: understood. you don't take it personally. >> vice president pence: i didn't take it personally. i thought it was important in this moment that i speak out on behalf of the faith of tens of millions of americans. my hope is that joy and others on the airwaves will come to appreciate the meaning and, if i can say, the joy that comes with the faith and respect that. >> sean: last question. 2018. we expected, the democrats expected a big blue wave in texas. that never happened. tomorrow there is an important race going on in the
pennsylvania 18th congressional district. a lot of turmoil for the country if nancy pelosi became the speaker again? >> vice president pence: the only thing at stake is everything. if you like a growing economy, if you like 3 million new jobs, if you like a president rebuilding the military. standing tall and the world again. fighting for the free, fair and reciprocal trade to appoint conservative to the court and cutting taxes what happens tomorrow is more than the two candidates on the ballot. the president and i both campaigned for rick saccone. he would be a fantastic member of congress. wore the uniform of the united states for nearly two decades. he was endorsed by the "pittsburgh post gazette"
sunday morning. that election to me and this fall election are more about the direction of the country. people of pennsylvania have an opportunity to send a message they support the direction of president trump. >> sean: it's also about the crumbs that nancy pelosi talks about? >> vice president pence: it really is. if the democrats took over the congress in this fall's election nancy pelosi would be speaker of the house again. we don't have to wonder what it would be like. i was in congress the last time it happened. all about raising taxes and more regulations. the dodd-frank bill that killed community banking and lending to small business owners. they forced obamacare on the country. we know they would want to turn back the progress the president made. that is why the president are in pennsylvania saturday night and why we with campaigning all over the country to make sure we re-elect the majority

>> laura: -- >> sean: the video of the day. i asked mike pence about north korea. this is what he said. >> vice president pence: president trump made it clear that the air of strategic -- era of strategic patience is over. he marked diplomatic pressure on the regime in
north korea. this breakthrough and we hope it is a breakthrough, is a result of the strong leadership that the president provided on the world stage. what north korea should know and the world should know we will not relent in the maximum pressure campaign.
sanctions will remain on and we will bring all the pressure to bear on north korea until
they amend the nuclear missile programs once and for all. >> sean: well said. we will follow that. time for "hannity" hotline. >> you are so partisan, so nasty, no gruff, so arrogant that you cannot interview somebody who is on the other side no matter what. you always bring in stupid questions. >> sean: turn that in a drinking game. anyway, no matter what i do, i can't win. whatever you want to say, sound off. 877-225-8587. that is the "hannity" hotline.
