6:00 pm
the i.g.'s report is expected to blast the fbi for this tardy response, which may have reflected an effort to deal the e-mails under wraps. that it's it for us. sean hannity is next. hi, sean. >> sean: can we pan in a little? they have this back so far, i can't see the teleprompter. >> where are you? >> sean: pan in and help us out here. that's all right. the people understand this is live television. good night, tucker. welcome to "hannity." this is unbelievable. the nefarious deeds that we've been telling you about are being exposed. this is the worst abuse of power corruption scandal in american history. it's all coming out. everything we've been telling you. the president rightly demanding to know how pervasive the spying was and who in the bomb administration was involved. rod rosenstein is responding and
6:01 pm
telling the doj inspector general that he is providing this for a deep state friend. and the media and hillary clinton's former top campaign aide for decades, mark penn, are starting to admit what a huge abuse of power scandal this is. we have the deep state actors. john brennan, sally yates, all melting down. in now desperation lashing out at president trump. it's not going to work, a bomb shell report from sarah carter, the fisa memos that the doj is refusing to hand over could hold the key to the obama fbi-trump surveillance. stay with us. this is an important breaking news monologue. brand new tonight after a meeting between trump, the fbi director chris wray, rod
6:02 pm
rosenstein and other top intel officials, president trump and the department of justice are asking the inspector general to investigate the obama administration and the spying they did on the trump campaign. the white house is also revealing tonight that chief of staff, john kelly, general kelly, is setting up a meeting for congress so they will see the documents that constitutionally they have been asking for and the doj has been obstructing and stone walling. i believe it when i see the documents. this is the same material that rod rosenstein has refused to turn over for months. now, his name, by the way, you want to keep an eye on it. i'll have more on rosenstein in a minute. what is unfolding about the deep state is so dramatic and shocking and so predictable given everything we've been covering over 18 months. we're now seeing the cracks in the deep state in the dam. it's about the burst. all of this information is now
6:03 pm
beginning to cascade out. even "the new york times," "the washington post" are now confirming just in the last week everything we have been uncovering for 18 months. it's the biggest abuse of power corruption candle. the house intel chair devin nunes says this is crossing a very serious red line. very important. >> if they ran a spy ring, an informant ring and paying people in the trump campaign, if any of that is true, it's an absolute red line. there's not an honest person in the country that thinks it's okay if sources, informants go around and start passing out money all over the globe to do what? to secretly put yourself into a presidential campaign? that's not acceptable. >> sean: that's not acceptable in the united states of america.
6:04 pm
chairman nunes is also saying there might be more than one fbi informant. you have to be kidding me. watch this. >> nobody was ever interested in an informant. we asked for specific documents that we have not received from the departments of justice. they continue to leak out things about this informant and we don't know if there's one informant or more informants because there's so much out there now, it's getting tough to follow. all we're asking for is give us the documentation that you used to start this investigation. >> hand it over. these type of tactics, spying on an opposition party in an election year, are you kidding me? this is what you'd see in the former soviet union. look at this. "wall street journal." we cannot recall a similar case even in the j. edgar hoover days
6:05 pm
when the fbi decided to snoop on presidential campaign. the same j. edgar hoover who is notorious for having files on everybody in washington. that's how serious this is. even clinton aide, mark penn, worked for the clintons for 20 years is calling out this scandal for what it is. this is a game-changing moment and penn has worked for hillary's chief strategist for her campaign in 2008. how is now calling this witch hunt for what it is and writing an op-ed in the hill, stopping robert mueller to protect us all. stunning headline. penn goes on to explain how the facts are now undeniable. mueller is on a crusade to get the president of the united states to overturn a duly elected president. he uses the term "deep state "that it's real that the fbi rigged the investigation.
6:06 pm
and penn explained more on this on "the story" with martha maccallum earlier tonight. >> i think the inspector general's report is coming out. i think nunes is finding out like what are the origins of the investigation and there doesn't seem to be a real concrete intelligence origin for this investigation. without a foundation one wondering what did we spent an entire year on, what did we disrupt everyone in the campaign, in the administration. >> sean: and ted olsen is out with a new piece where he i'm places herself and how robert mueller's witch hunt can be setting up a massive constitutional crisis. sheryl atkinson called the collusion against trump and entire timeline. she breaks down every single key moment in this entire massive abuse of power scandal. we will refer to this throughout history. because it's been going on for
6:07 pm
18 months. the mainstream media are finally starting to catch on and admit that what we've been reporting and what others on the show have been reporting and other people what we've been covering, we're being proven right. they have to admit it. look at this headline from "the washington post." "secret fbi source for russia investigation met with three trump advisers." a "usa today" report. it says -- by the way, even liberal cnn can't ignore all the facts, all the evidence. okay. it's taken them over a year. finally the media has missed the single biggest story in their lifetime. now it's a massive abuse of power. we first reported on this march 7, 2017 about fisa surveillance of the trump campaign. president trump, he has every single right tonight to be outraged about what has
6:08 pm
happened. he has every right to want to know the truth. you, the american people, need to know the truth. we need to expose all of this criminal behavior, all of these deep-state actors need to be exposed and all of them held accountable. the deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, he's quick to respond to president trump demanding the department of justice get to the bottom of it all. so rosenstein has made himself out to be a hero but it's a total farce. here's why. rosenstein is doing what he always does, protecting his deep state friends. the deputy attorney general, he knows that by referring this to the inspector general, it will buy them a year to 18 months and protect all of these deep state actors. now it's going to take michael horowitz over a year. we don't have over a year to uncover this. we need a full fbi doj rank and file field office investigation into all of this. what they're trying to do is
6:09 pm
slowly leak out this information a slow bleed to cover themselves. it's all acya. remember, they know what is out there. they know they're about to get caught. this is all about controlling the narrative, spinning the narrative, trying to protect themselves and they probably learned a thing or two from hillary about acid washing hard drives. we have to be careful. another major component. rosenstein, the inspector general doesn't have any prosecutorial power. horowitz can't indict people. he can only give criminal referrals like in the case of andrew mccabe. the fbi and the doj get to review and try to refute facts and redact information, probably falsely in the name of national security. we've been saying congress needs to see these documents. we have checks and balances, separation of powers, co-equal
6:10 pm
branches of government. they're purposely obstructing. looks like some of this might start to happen. sarah carter will joins us. another breaking story, secret fisa documents. rod rosenstein signed the final warrant, using the fake fisa document to spy on carter page. using the unverified, never corroborated clinton bought and paid for, foreign national dossier of russian lies. sarah is reporting in april the fbi refused to turn over documents that chairman nunes and others have been asking for. you know, phony claims of national security risks. as we have seen, it's one excuse to stone wall after another. all to prevent congress from
6:11 pm
knowing the truth and fulfilling their constitutional role. chairman nunes, he's now putting his foot down. in this standoff with rosenstein and the doj. take a look. >> we had what i thought is a productive meeting. after that meeting, they have done nothing but leak and leak. we don't know who it is over at the department of justice or fbi. i'm not pinning in i blame on people. we're not going to another meeting where we don't get documents and the meeting leaks out. >> sean: the chairman is getting close. the entire truth is starting to come out. thankfully. by the way, despite rosenstein stone walling. now because of all of these new developments, you have deep state actors, former, communist voting john brennan. known liar, john clapper. sally yates. they're all losing their minds because they're all about to be
6:12 pm
exposed. brennan saying senator mcconnell, if mr. trump continues along this disastrous path, you'll will bear major responsibility to the harm for our democracy. by the way, we're a republic. you do a disservice if you continue to enable mr. trump's self-serving actions. brennan is up to his eyeballs in all of this. i'm certain that will be exposed. as we have been saying on this program, he's been lying about his involvement with this clinton bought and paid for dossier for months and he lied in front of congress. as for james clapper, he's ensnared in the dossier scandal. and clapper, just like yates and brennan, let's go after the president and attack him. >> it's a very disturbing assault on the independence of the department of justice. when the president -- this
6:13 pm
president or any president tries to use the department of justice as a private investigatory is not good for the government. it's about what the russians were doing. were they attempting to infiltrate the concern? that was the concern. in my belief that's what the focus of this activity about. >> sean: the same clapper that bragged about the fbi spying on the trump campaign and said it was a good thing? this is problematic. and then good old sally yates that signed off on one of the fisa warrants like rosenstein and was e-mailing with andrew weissman after she refused to enforce the travel ban. yates is trashing the president. why? to save and protect herself. watch this. >> donald trump himself accusing the obama administration of improperly targeting his
6:14 pm
campaign for an investigation. what is your response to everything you heard over the weekend? >> obviously i'm not going to comment on the specific fact there's. it's up to the department of justice to decide what information should be made public with respect to that. you know, i think what we're seeing here is the president has just taken his all-out assault on the rule of law to a new level. this time he is ordering up an investigation of the investigators who are examining his own campaign. you know, that's really shocking. >> sean: a hard-hitting interview by liberal joy. these guys are scared out of their mind. they're directly implicated in this. it's time to ask. what did they know and when did they know it. like's been saying about james comey, who by the way, james, i warned you, you had the right to remain silent. you didn't listen. instead of running their mouths, they might want to lawyer up and many of them are.
6:15 pm
yeah, james comey hired three lawyers. the three people he leaked documents too. great. attorney client privilege for everybody but me. big development to tell you about. the soon-to-be released doj i.g. report on the clinton e-mail server investigation is expected to slam fbi leaders just like comey, andrew mccabe for taking weeks to reveal uma e-mails. if the inspector general horowitz does his job and his 500 employees, comey and mccabe should be very worried tonight. a lot of ground to cover. joining us now, sarah carter, former u.s. attorney for the district of columbia, jody -- joe digeneva. i said to you last time, my mom was a prison guard. my dad worked in family court probation.
6:16 pm
i have so many extended family members in the nypd and the fbi. you see bad cops. i know 99% are not. they're good people for this country. but we know tonight, you have been right and what we've been reporting, sarah including, she's been right. >> i think the sad thing about this, you look at somebody like sally yates complain about the rule of law and the violation of it when she and brennan and comey and others destroyed the rule of law in the obama administration. they besmirched it. they have destroyed the department of justice and the fbi. it's going to take a decade to rebuild the public trust in the fbi and the department of justice because sally yates, who
6:17 pm
just joined a fancy law firm in atlanta, is going to need to lawyer up. the disgraceful performance of her and of course even more disgraceful, john brennan that led a conspiracy against the campaign of the opposing party's presidential nominee, and then when he won did everything they could to frame him and his compatriots with false crimes. it's the greatest political scandal in american history, and shame on sally yates and shame on john brennan. >> sean: it's such a powerful commentary and sadly it's all true. sarah carter, march 7, 2017, you and john solomon, right here on this show broke the news about the trump campaign being surveilled. you're now saying that concealed fisa documents, the warrants, the original applications, the
6:18 pm
bulk of information as the nunes and grassley graham memo said came from the phony dossier that hillary paid for and lied to fisa judges, how are those documents -- and i hear there's other documents that if they're ever are leased will expose all of it, that's why the i.g. report is a bad idea or going to i.g. route is a bad idea. >> i think going with the i.g. is fine as long as the documents are turned over. that's what's important here. these documents are associated with the fisa applications. remember, there were four fisa applications starting in october 21, 2016 and then it rolled all the way to september 2017. that is seven months into president trump's administration. and these were all on carter page. they also brought in a drag net of everybody that carter page spoke to and possibly people that those people spoke to. now, there was evidence attached to these fisa applications. remember, it's not just the dossier.
6:19 pm
there was other extenuating evidence that was attached. these are probably part of the documents that they're requesting. remember, this was a classified letter that nunes sent. nobody has seen it. what is important that they get those documents. the house intelligence committee -- >> neil: there's something called police bit that nobody knew about except for hillary clinton. >> that's right. these are on servers that are highly guarded. >> sean: i worry about it. >> i know. i'm not 100% positive this could be destroyed. they need to show them without redactions and they need to have people that understand what's going on. need to have people that can just read the documents. knot just congressional leaders. john kelly will set up that meeting. i hope the president got confirmation from rod rosenstein and christopher wray that they
6:20 pm
will be delivering those documents and i hope the appropriate investigators with the right clearance get into this meeting and examine those documents. >> sean: i hope the president is demanding it. he has the power to demand it and power to see it unredacted and declassify, if need be. by the way, i told sara last week, am i going to recognize the officials of the informant? yeah, we recognize them. we're discovering two separate reports that he got paid between $400,000 and maybe as high as a million. we also learned from devin nunes, we might have a second spy on a presidential candidates. i read the "wall street journal." now you have people like ted olson who everybody respects. former solicitor general, mark penn. sharyl atkinson's time line is devastating. your reaction to this. >> here's the thing.
6:21 pm
you know, inspector generals are good in circumstances. mr. horowitz cannot interview any of the people that left the department of justice or the fbi. he has no subpoena authority so the people part of the plot are gone. he can't talk to them. all he can do is review documents and talk to whoever is left to do that. what we need is a federal grand jury with a prosecutor, doesn't have to be a special counsel -- and by the way, let's remember why we're here. we're here because rod rosenstein, a political coward, someone that was inadvertent made deputy attorney general appointed robert mueller illegally. here we are more than a year later with nothing having been determined except there was no russian collusion. all of these people been put through hell because rod rosenstein couldn't done what he should have done, which is conducted -- not only is he
6:22 pm
conflicted because he was a witness and he signed some of the warrants, guess what? suppose there was activity, which i believe there was that went beyond the law. rod rosenstein is not only a witness, he would be a co conspirator. this is ludicrous. when you think that the president of the united states has to demand an investigation into something -- >> sean: it's -- outrageous. we have 35 seconds. is joe right? >> i believe joe is right about rod rosenstein. he's been stone walling congress, stone walling everybody about the release of documents. i believe that nunes and the rest of them mean it. if they take this next meeting, he better bring the documents and bring them so they can see them. >> sean: i hear if he brings them, he's signing his own
6:23 pm
demise. >> he signed the last fisa warrant. >> sean: that's right. i want to see it. you guys have been amazing. thanks for your hard work. when we come back, more with ed henry and newt gingrich and much more straight ahead. your brain changes as you get older. but prevagen helps your brain with an ingredient originally discovered... in jellyfish. in clinical trials, prevagen has been shown to improve short-term memory. prevagen. the name to remember. ♪ come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away. ♪

[ whirring sound ] you want a cookie? it's a drone! i know. find your phone easily with the xfinity voice remote. one more way comcast is working to fit into your life, not the other way around. >> sean: all right. joining us live from the white house, more details of the president's high stakes meeting with the deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, chief national correspondent, ed henry. ed, i won't believe the documents are coming until they're sent. >> sean, a lot of skepticism about that especially with sally yates ousted last year, saying today that she believes the president is launching an all-out assault on democracy by pressuring the justice department to put these
6:28 pm
documents out there and also investigate what happened with this confidential informant. republicans like devin nunes are pushing back saying that sally yates and other obama officials are trying to divert attention from the real story, a bright red line was crossed when the fbi infiltrated the trump campaign and allegedly spied on it. the meeting with rod rosenstein, christopher wray, the fbi director, the president was demanding a new investigation to find out how this russia probe started. president got some concrete action. sarah sanders telling us based on the meeting with the president, the department of justice has asked the inspector general to expand their current investigation to include any irregularities with the fbi or the department of justices tactics concerning the trump campaign. it was agreed that white house chief of staff john kelly will set up a meeting with the fbi, the doj and director of national intelligence with congressional leaders to review classified and
6:29 pm
other information that they requested. that means john kelly will be working with nunes and others to get the documents that nunes has been demanding for weeks about this informant. adam schiff objects. >> this is a dramatic and destructive low for congress of the united states to ignore the warnings of the fbi and the justice department and potentially risk people's lives. what they would like this information for is clearly to be of service to the trump defense team and further any narrative they have. >> we don't know if there's one informant or more informants because there's so much out there now that it's really getting tough to follow. all we're asking for is give us the documentation that you used to start this investigation i. >> fox news also learning tonight that this long-awaited justice department inspector general report looking at the fbi and the justice department's handling of the hillary clinton
6:30 pm
e-mail investigation have found a james comey, andy mccabe, the former number 2 that was ousted, acted improperly but not moving quickly enough on the e-mails that appeared in september of 2016. they didn't look into them, the new clinton e-mails found on anthony wiener's laptop until october 2016. that and other things showed that it's not just the handling of the trump investigation but the handling of the clinton investigation by the doj and the fbi. still under investigation right now. >> sean: deep state is being exposed. mueller's witch hunt is crashing in. fascinating times. joining us, kimberly strassel. she was the first journalist to expose this huge scandal nearly two weeks ago. she joins us as well as fox news contributor jason chaffetz. i love the "wall street journal" and their comments, their
6:31 pm
editorial, kimberly. i thought it was devastating and the calls on the obama administration what did he know and when did he knew it. and now nunes says there might be a second spy? >> this is very important for people to remember. the department of justice, which is now out there hinting and various partisans like adam schiff that somehow congressman nunes and others are responsible for blowing this source? the department of justice leaked all of these details to friendly news media sources. everything sort of this guy's name and his social security number. >> sean: bingo. >> just so they could get ahead of this and spin it the way they wanted to because they knew the nuese was tightening and probably be forced to put out the documents. this is the other important part, too. none of us have had enough information on yet is we know a lot about what the fbi did, although still not enough, what we don't know is what the political side of this operation
6:32 pm
knew. we know clinton's campaign had this dossier, too. who else had it in the obama administration? what other agencies were involved in efforts to go after the trump campaign prior to the fbi's claim of its official start of the investigation. >> sean: i'll say it. i don't want to bring former congressman chaffetz, schiff is the biggest liar. bigger points here. the fbi paid this guy. we've known his name for a long time, this is not -- they leaked it. they did it. but paying this guy money and maybe a second spy? and i don't believe they're going to hand over the documents if they can get away with it. congressman chaffetz, you requested the same information well over a year ago. it's never been forthcoming. >> yeah, there's a subpoena issued in 2016 for all the documents that we wanted to see.
6:33 pm
the inspector general can get these documents if he hasn't already. i hope he's gathered them up. i think the deep state is understanding that the truth is going to surface and that's why they're leaking this information to friendly news sources to put their own spin on it. kim strassel has done the best reporting on that. i have to tell you, you have a attorney general with jeff sessions who is there in name only. he's worthless. you have rod rosenstein who is there with an oxygen mask. he's totally conflicted. i'm excite had with some members in the house will do tomorrow. i think there's a group of five members that will put forward a resolution that they need a second special counsel. >> i hear that rod rosenstein has a vicious temper and is screaming at people every day. is you heard that? >> it's not pretty over there. and you look at the democrats
6:34 pm
like adam schiff, this political hack that is so desperate not to have the truth to come out. he doesn't want it. he doesn't want to expose what's going on. devin nunes is part of the gang of eight. he can look at that information. >> sean: and i agree with congressman chaffetz. kimberly, last word. >> this has to be declassified. congress needs to see it first and then we all need to see it. >> the president can do it. >> yes. >> sean: and he can demand they turn them over now, >> yep. >> yes. >> he's the president of the united states. the only constitutionally elected person and he can declassify it. >> sean: now. i'd say the president, do it now. do not waste 18 months for the i.g. to investigate with 500 people. they'll do everything they can to spin it, lie, delete. thank you all. when we come back, newt gingrich weighs in on the breaking news. stay with us.

6:39 pm
>> sean: reaction to the big breaking news. author of the upcoming book out june 5 and available for re-order on barnes & noble.com, it's called "the nation about america's big comeback." fox news contributor, newt gingrich but not now. sorry. you're family to me. but when you look at this and ted olson and park pen and shary atkinson trying to get ahead of what they were doing for 1 1/2 years and the deep state real, fisa abuses real, spies in the trump campaign are real. you're the great historian.
6:40 pm
tell me where in history this will stack up to. >> well, i think it's rapidly becoming the biggest and most sobering political scandal in american history. somebody pointed out earlier, back when j. edgar hoover was spying on lyndon johnson's behest of richard next son, we thought it was terrible. when they had a break in at watergate, we thought it was terrible, this is a multiyear effort with two different fronts. people need to remember that. one front was protecting, covering up for bill and hillary clinton. the other front, as trump became more and more serious, the other front was to stop trump at any cost. i believe that the reason you see people like sally yates go berserk, general clapper they're
6:41 pm
all guilty. when you see someone in the obama team that gets that rattled, they're scared to death that they're going to get drawn into this. their role will come out and it will involve i think felonies and frankly i suspect it reaches to president obama. it's inconceivable that president obama could have had this many things going on and not known it because his administration was very controlling, very tight and i think we're going to discover all of the stuff in the end ends up with the obama white house and has the president and his senior staff's fingerprints all over it. >> sean: the question remains what did he know, what did kerry know and susan rice and what did clapper and brennan know. we haven't talked about unmasking. but you're right. hillary gets a rigged investigation and then comes the effort to undermine a president or candidate and a president-elect and the president of the united states.
6:42 pm
you put spies and you lie to fisa judges? >> i think the number one thing the average everyday american can take from this, the corruption was so deep at the top. remember, we're not taking about the every day fbi agent doing their job. we're talking about people at the top. they were so corrupt and so arrogant that they thought they could get away with anything. so they just proceeded down the road, protecting hillary, covering uphillry, giving immunity to people breaking the law and going after trump and going after trump supporters. when all of this comes out as one in a way that is easy to understand, which may take another year or 1 1/2 years because there's so much of it. every time we turn around, another piece unravels. you've had more big stories in the last 1 1/2 years than i would have thought possible.
6:43 pm
again and again, you've been right and inch by inch even "the new york times" is starting to concede. by the way, mark penn's column today is a real break-through. here you have a genuine inqualified member of the left saying this is a threat to all of us and we have got to get rid of mueller because he threatens every american's freedom. >> sean: mr. speaker, you understand the constitution. you understand checks and balances, separation of powers, constitutional authority, oversight of congress. how dare rod rosenstein, who already is conflicted in this by recommending the firing of comey and signing one of the fisa warrants, how dare they not turn this over to congress? that's what they have done what should congress do. you're a former speaker. >> first of all, it's beginning to move in the right direction. the president is beginning to way in to reinforce the
6:44 pm
republicans in congress. i think you -- general kelly being given this assignment is a very tough, very serious man. i think he's going to impose on the justice department doing their job of turning over legitimate appropriate information to the legislative branch. everybody ought to remember, you mentioned the constitution. remember that when they were done writing it, benjamin franklin was asked by a woman, who have we got? he said we have a republic if we can keep it. this is one of those great tests in american history. corruption came close to destroying the liberties you and i believe in. >> sean: if hillary got elected, none of this would have come out. scary, mr. speaker. we appreciate your perspective as always. i promise will be promoting your book. it will be great. i haven't seen it yet. when we come back, former obama cia director communist

>> sean: the president is taking aim at former cia director, john brennan on twitter after he attacked him with outrageous accusations on twitter. take a look. >> i think he's afraid of the president of russia. >> why? >> one can speculate as to why. they may have something on him. he's had this fawning attitude toward mr. putin, he's not said anything negative about him. says something to me that he has something to fear. >> mr. putin is clever in terms
6:50 pm
