in the. meantime, 8:00 p.m., every night, the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink. goodbye from the border with north korea, have the best fourth of july. "hannity" is next. >> dan: thanks a lot, i am dan bongino in tonight for sean. independence day is right around the corner. and this year president trump is planning to honor america with a very special fourth of july celebration in washington, d.c. complete with military aircraft flyovers, historic tanks from one of the biggest firework shows in history. but not everyone is excited. per usual, the mainstream media is trying to rain on the parade. literally. checkli this out. >> it is just obscene, it really is. and i just hope that it does not spoil the whole day. >> you see that this is really problematic to the d.c. city council for several reasons. >> as a native washingtonian, i find this to be offensive.
i don't need a tank in my front long to tell my neighbor that i am a patriot. >> what is the message that donald trump is trying to send rolling tanks down the avenue? who is that too? it is not the tyrants. he loves tyrants. it is not to the putin, it is not to kim jong un, it is not to the saudis. is it to western democracy who does not like it? or is it to us? the resistance in the country. it is always a threat when you roll military. but to whom it is a threat? and i expect the threat is to the fellow americans. >> dan: you heard that right, joy reid feels threatened by a patriotic celebration. meanwhile,d out of work, backup quarterback at colin kaepernick is calling the betsy ross american flag racist because it represents the 13 colonies and inec the 1700s some colonial citizens of owned slaves. according to "the wall street journal," the former backup cornerback turned justice warrior called on nike to remove a patriotic sneeze sneaker featuring the betsy ross flag from the shelf.
and naturally, nike was happy to oblige. no word of colin kaepernick still triggered. joining us with reaction, fox news correspondent geraldo rivera, and the founder, skyridge capital, anthony scaramucci. good to see you, buddy. >> great to be with you. >> dan: i will go to you first, i thought kaepernick during his infamous nfl protest he made the point that it was not about the flag. but now i flag is on nike shoes and it is about the flag. >> nike is making a strategic bet. they want to go for the inner city and the youth, they want to play the social justice core, so white affluent sneaker buyers decided not to do that. that is against the michael jordan adage, you remember what he said? i don't care republicans and democrats by sneakers. they are making a big mistake. and it would be more corporate strategy to be more inclusive. on a military, i was actually against it. i want to be fair and balanced,
because i'm often worried about what eisenhower said about the industrial complex, and i talked to several veterans today, and to the gulf war parade, and i turned it around. ai understand what the president is trying to do. he is trying to celebrate patriotism. he is trying to celebrate the freedom that the military has rapresented and represented for thee united states. i have to confess honestly. when i first heard about it i was less happy about it. but once again, the president has way better instincts than i do about the american people. >> dan: has very good instincts. he always has. geraldo, i will go to you on this. is this the dumbest business move in modern american history by nike? are they just rolling all of us? when i make an out of this? this is a ground ball, the american flag, not some partisan symbol, what is going on? >> you know, in terms of nike, i would love to talk about the parade also, the whole world loves the parade. they only hated because
donald trump are posted. in nike's case it seems that they are running so scared. they are afraid to offend anybody. they are so politically correct to that they would unravel a deal that was well involved and had really no offense meant to anybody. betsy ross,o my family and i wee in philadelphia recently, you pass her house. to the flag that she sewed in 1776 as they are out the window. people just relate to it. itre is preposterous to think tt you cannot -- what are you going to do take down the washington monument next? because he had slaves, thomas jefferson and so forth? in terms of the parade in washington and so forth, this is it is amazing. people on the left hates our
president so much that they are willing to just put a negative spin on anything. how many times have you seen a flyover and an athletic event? everybody loves them except for when president trump is the one proposing them. >> dan: you get goose bumps with the flyovers pray to speak of the super bowl. >> dan: i remember apr secret service agent being at the world series when george w. bush throughout the first pitch. there were no democrats and republicans, it was only americans. >> that is the thing, the polarity that geraldo is talking about, you have a really bad corporate strategy on nike. they do so much more trying to bring everybody -- >> dan: i hate to play devil's advocate, but it is fair, someg of the response i have heard from liberals is nike stock is up and the sails have gonee up. >> you did not ask me as a capital manager. capital manager when the stock .fell off, i looked at it and said they are making the right bed, they will sell more sneakers if they do this.
here's the problem, you have to be long-term greedy in a society in a culture, because the pendulum will swing again, dan. there will be way better off being more inclusive than just focusing on the short term of the strategy. >> dan: i agree with anthony 100%. this was a dumb long-term move. i love a this country. i bleed red, white, and blue and always have. it is a long term really silly play, but the constant reflection by the left on the negatives of america. focusing on our original sin rather than the blood we have left on world soil, free nations pray to cemeteries have with the greatest generation left there. every country is some fourth of original sin, many countries were born out of some violence or aggression, but the united states has done such wonderful things, what is with this constant harping with the left on the negative all theed hatime? how is this a winner? >> part of the problem, dan, and anthony is that we do not have unifying moments anymore.
look right now what is happening.yien our women's soccer team is in the world cup, they are going to the finals for the third year in a row. under ordinary circumstances we would be right on, we would be watching in theta bars and high-fiving them back slapping each other, but because someone asked megan rapinoe, the cocaptain of the team whether she would visit the white house if they won the world cup, sheem said no, because she opposes his policy, so the performance of our national team in the world cup, something we should all be ldextolling, the virtue and our kids should be watching and wanting to play like they play, instead it is do you like trump, you don't like trump, you visit the white house, you don't visit the white house, it is melancholy and sad, i am objectively speaking that the country is doing great. the economy has expanded for 21 straight months.s. minority unemployment is g at historic lows. the wealth gap for the first time in many years appears to be lessening.
you know, there is great opportunity. to the president's trade deal, when he walked into the dmz and cross the line into north korea, everybody should've been celebrating. you know, if you want to make peace, as it was said, you don't speak to your friends, you speak with your enemies. the president went into north korea, the first president ever. everybody should be celebrating that come up with a hatred of donald trump is so intense that he becomes this synonym for the nation. i think it is very distressing. people should get over themselves, as a kid you watch the fourth of july parade and you get a tear in your eye watch for watching the world war i guy onin the world war ii guy, and thenar it is a wonderful life affirming moments, and here we are making it a bunch of crap. >> dan: thanks a lot, guys. congressman ocasio-cortez visited a migrant center in texas. sparking a firestorm of controversy as she witnessed mistreatment by guards and living conditions for detainees.
trace gallagher joins us live from the west coast newsroom with the latest. trace. >> nobody is disputing that the border facilities are unable to accommodates the migrant familis that have descended upon the border. the report from homeland security inspector general says that the problem is a negative for everyone. "we are concerned that overcrowding and prolonged detention represent an immediate risk to the health and safety of dhs agents and officers and to those detained." by the comments made by members of thehe congressional hispanic caucus after touring the facility have brought this to an entirely different level. watch. >> they put them in rooms with no running water. and these women were being told by cbp officers to drink out ofd the toilet. >> and tonight on twitter, ocasio-cortez again used a highly controversial concentration camp comparison.
but border officials are pushing back hard saying that everybody has access to fresh water and nobody has been told to drink from toilets. the reverend samuel rodriguez, president of the national hispanic christian leadership conference toward the same facility at the very same time as the congressional hispanic caucus and said "we found no soiled diapers, no deplorable conditions, and no lack of basic necessities." he went on to say that he was shocked by the miss information by some members of congress. and breaking tonight, dan, despite a backlog of 800,000 asylum cases in the immigration court, the u.s. district judge in seattle has blocked a trump administration policy that would have kept asylum-seekers in custody pending their court dates. the move was meant to deter asylum-seekers from coming to the u.s., it will likely be f appealed by the justice department very soon. >> dan: trace, thanks a lot,
not to be outdone by other democrats, immigration craziness, 2020 candidate cory booker who is trailing in the polls announce the plan to "virtually eliminate immigrant detention and expand protections for illegal immigrants to executive order on day one as president." joining us with more, sara carter, and arizona congressman andy biggs, sara i will go to you first. what is a interesting about alexandria ocasio-cortez and her protest here is that she voted against some of the money to go down and alleviate some of the conditions that she is complaining about. and not only that, sara, she celebrated wayfarer employees to get children off the floor in the facilities. my misreporting this? >> no, you are not misreporting anything, dan, who is misreporting is alexandria ocasio-cortez, she is the one
that is misrepresenting herself and misrepresenting what she saw at the border patrol in texas, i was on the phone all day today as well, talking about the claims that she made, they are absolutely false. they say because mainly they have video cameras inside all of these facilities, so if people were forced to drink out of toilets or if agents missed treated the people that were o being held, then they would see that on the tapes. and they have seen no such thing. so right there, she needs to come clean and talk about -- like she did when she said they were not getting shampoo and toiletries. she eventually had to come clean and had to admit, yes, that then not to admit, yes, the border patrol agents, the department of homeland security is providing those products and those toiletries to the people were crossing the border. it is absolutely insane. >> i have decent sources and deborder patrol, i'm sure your b you do as well.
i've heard the story about forcing a woman to drink from a toilet, which if true, someone should have been prosecuted, is absolutely categorical nonsense, that it's false. if making it up. i don't know if she miss her something or she's making it up, but my question to you is the accolades have told us for months, have been, that there's no crisis. everybody look the other way. i thought it wasn't a crisis. now it's a crisis a crisis all of ath sudden. >> the narrative they've been living on is a manufactured crisis. it is absolutely crumbled. if you look at polling today, there's a majority of all people and all parties and persuasions that say there's a crisis on the border. the cohorts that come in and say these are concentration camps, those are accurate either.
they believe in this kind of method -- you keep telling lies about the stuff, keep making it up. to facilitate their narrative because they don't want trump to get a political victory there for open borders and that's really what's happening here. it's astounding to me, like sarah i was on the phone with my contacts today and they are like this is crazy. it didn't happen, and you saw that from a group of pastors that where in there at the same time. where she coming from? >> what's fascinating about this case. they always start the story in lwthe middle. these facilities are overcrowded in the conditions of the park deplorable, which we should look into. then you ask the obvious question, misshe ocasio-cortez,e haven't done anything about flora's. there's no is wall. very little being done before donald trump and central america to stop the flow.
you were down there, you saw the report. if we stay on the floor we couldn't have an overcrowding problem. >> that's absolutely true and i want to>> say one thing and i spent a lot of time of the border. for many, many years i've been traveling to the u.s.-mexico borderg as well, not just central america. really working and watching what was happening with agents on the ground and a lot of the immigrants that were trying to come across. and you know what ig can say, dan, what i saw over and over again? agents that put anyone on the line. people that were actually coming across the border who sometimes were ill, first hospital they saw a border patrol agent delivering them to safety or trying to help their child, and i think this is what is not coming across to the american public. >> congressman, i saw a picture today that's very touching. border patrol agent in the water, throwing himself into the river to save a young migrant child who was clearly in distress in the water. you're up in congress.
i'm sure you're familiar with a few bad apples up there too. these are heroic men and women. they put themselves on the line. they are not getting rich. living life as a police officer, i'm sorry. it's really a shame they've used him as a ping-pongng ball here. >> absolutely right. sarah is right and you are righ right. 70,000 monthly agents personnel and border patrol and you might have a couple of dozens the vast majority are giving their best effort to get this done. don't forget, never forget this, but the people that are complaining, making up -- looks like they are fabricated. it just doesn't make sense. want to illuminate all of ice, eliminate border patrol. they don't want internal enforcement of our laws. they are politically biased all the way.

former manafort business client reveals that he was interviewed by the fbi in the fall of 2016 and cast doubt on the phone russian collusion narrative but check this out. according to solomon, the fbi interview was never provided by team mueller, even though it provided potential proof of innocence. joining me now for reaction is fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett, the hill's john solomon and judicial watch president. john, i will go to first. bombshell story, i tweeted it out before, i was reading through it. this is incredible. a russian oligarch with unquestionable ties to putin. they were friends at one point. in metals magnate, his connections to russia are not in question. interviewed by the fbi, according to your story, and in that interview he's asked about this potential collusion between members of the trump team and take it from there about his answer and then what was not
provided to the team protecting manafort. >> it's really important to understand that the september september 2016, he had some real credibility with the fbi because six years earlier when bob mueller was the director of the fbi, working russian crimes, they asked him to fund a secret mission to try to rescue a captured fbi agent who was hostage in iran. we ask them to spend his own money to rescue one of our own people. he gains a lot of credibility for that. if they show up at his house in september 2016 in the middle of the election and they say listen, we think paul manafort, your former business associate, is coordinating with russia to hijack the selection. donald trump and putin are working together. i don't know for sure, but i can tell you i think it's nonsense. the guy owes me money. if the russian government would come to me and asked me before they used him on such a sensitive operation, i think you're barking up the wrong tre tree. that is so significant from a discovery standpoint, and here's why. they go to the court one month later.
they go to the court, the fisa court, they don't tell the court when they posit the theory that there is collusion going on. they talk to one of their trusted russian sources and he knocked it down. even more significantly, paul manafort goes to trial. he's in the middle of this whole collusion and corruption question and they don't provide that interview with the fbi to his legal defense team. that's known in the legal world as a brady violation. could open up a new door of appeal or avenue of appeal for paul manafort's legal team. >> dan: it's an incredible story, everyone should check it out. going to you from the legal side, greg, we've seen this over and over with the mueller team. potential exculpatory information whether the alleged tapes of papadopoulos claiming he has nothing to do with the russians. of course connected to manafort and they make it out to be this nefarious thing. we find out he was a source for the obama state department too. we see this again and again now with him indicating there was no collusion and it's kept away from team manafort and hidden in
the mueller al capone vault here. >> you mention brady violation. it's a supreme court decision, brady versus maryland, 1963. prosecutors like mueller must always turn over to the defense any exculpatory information. failure to do so is a due process violation into the fifth and 14th amendments. now we learn through john's great reporting, it wasn't that exculpatory evidence was never handed over. to manafort's team. so the remedy for that is to go to the judge and make a motion to set aside the verdict. you have to prove a nexus, so that will be the challenge for manafort's lawyers, but, it doesn't surprise me that it happened because the guy in charge of the case was andrew weissmann, who has a long and disgraceful history being caught threatening witnesses and suppressing evidence. he is a prosecutorial terrorist.
and numerous complaints have been filed against him, and yet here's another example. when i read john's story, it's got to be andrew weissmann. it has to be. >> dan: this case has been a disgrace the way it's been handled. tom, i read your part tonight. find out now officials at the state department sounded the alarm that have been called like they were hunting off a herd or something like that. but they eliminate at least 30,000 emails. why haven't we heard about this sooner? why didn't this come out sooner? where were the whistle-blowers on this? >> well, because the same justice department and state department that were targeting trump as we are discussing here, or protecting hillary clinton. in this senior official of the state department was a senior records official. he saw that famous picture of hillary clinton looking at the blackberry. he raised questions. about what's going on here. does she have an email account? so he testified essentially that the state department knew about
her email system. didn't tell anyone about it. and then once they found -- then they found out that she had all these email records, finally admitted that she did. they allow her on her own to go through and tell them what was government records and what wasn't, which was an appropriate, and it turns out they ended up destroying 33,000 records, including they tried to destroy classified information. and then thirdly. thirdly he said the under classified materials specifically on the benghazi case, so that meant they were sending out the door material that was unmarked as classified even though they knew what was classified, or the putting national security at risk not only to protect themselves, to protect hillary, because they didn't want even more classified information associated with her account. obviously to protect her from being criminally prosecuted. unbelievable scandal. more than enough information for the justice department to reopen an investigation.
not only hillary clinton's misconduct, but frankly obama, government official misconduct certainly at the state department. >> dan: x a lot. also developing. a "washington post" is out with a new piece this week casting doubt on claims from congressman devin nunes and others about mysterious multis professor having ties to western intelligence. remember, at the center of the case against george papadopoulos. and while jim comey cast him as a russian agent, mueller's report makes no such claim. if questions about whether or not there's undisclosed ties to the west have yet to be answered. if you're to respond to all of this is ranking member of the house intelligence committee, republican congressman devin nunes. congressman, it's really great to talk to. your work on this case. i think when we look back on it, you will be remembered for it. if you've done incredible work and i deeply appreciate it. having said that, the core of the conspiracy theory against donald trump has been that he had some ties to the russian government, relayed information
to trump campaign member george papadopoulos, and that set off this tide of the fbi investigatory trail. but congressman, bob mueller, after millions of dollars, 500 search warrants, multiple fbi agents interviewing people, makes no such claim in his report. he said there are russian connections. that's far different than him being a russian agent. what are we missing here? >> you know, dan, there's always this saying where there's smoke there's fire, in this case there's not even smoke. there's not even any ashes. the fact that joseph mifsud, a multis diplomat before he was a professor, seen in pictures of people like boris johnson. leading talks at nato. he is involved with many u.s. agencies, including the state department and the fbi and let's just top it off with this. in early 2017, at the house
intelligence committee is beginning our investigation, just steps away from that investigation. joseph mifsud was guess where? in the u.s. capitol at the invitation of the state department or a group associated with the state department. members of congress were there. so look, the fact that joseph mifsud knows some russians, yeah, i think that's very likely. the fact that mueller ignores certain documents that he actually uses. if he uses pieces of news stories and what i call the mueller dossier, the mueller report. in those same news reports, dan, you have evidence in the news report where they call him and his writers that they thought were good enough to use to make one point. they don't use the fact that those writers claim he was a western intelligence asset. this whole mifsud thing has stunk for a long time. it makes no sense. i have no idea whether or not he is a russian asset or a western intelligence asset for a double agent or what.
all i know is that after $40 million, we still don't know any more than we knew before, and this is supposedly the guy that knew about the clinton email. >> dan: congressman, one of the suspicious pieces i found in "the washington post" report, they emphasize that length, mifsud's efforts to cultivate relationships with russia. if he was a russian asset, then why is he cultivating -- you understand how that doesn't make any sense. on one hand are telling us he is the key figure in a russian exchange of information with the trump team to win and election and on the other hand in "the washington post" your reporting that he still taking trips to russia trying to ingratiate himself to people. both of those stories can't be true at the same time. >> the other weird thing about this, dan, is you have the mainstream media, who got this totally wrong. they were wrong about the hoax. if you talk about it on your show all the time, you've written a book on it, the many people that you just had on before us have talked about this, when they just going to give it up?
these are russian hoaxes. what on earth is "the washington post" doing jumping back into the russia hoax water? and i think what they found as they look foolish again. because look, the only guy that we know that has said for sure that mifsud is a russian asset is guess who? james comey. just about a month ago in the pages of "the washington post." so then "the washington post" -- they have all of their supposedly sources that they don't name. if none of this makes any sense, but i don't understand why the mainstream media continues to jump into these waters. why don't they actually try to go get the truth? right? the interview -- the interview a lady in the story that at one time had affiliation -- a u.k. citizen. you probably know the name. >> dan: yeah. >> so clearly she knows mifsud. right? they interviewed her. why not ask her point blank, you work with this guy, he worked
the state department, you work with the fbi in the past, who is this guy? why we do not have two or three or four paragraphs just interviewing her? she could probably tell you a lot. mueller couldn't call him a russian asset. >> dan: i want to get this one last question. also, why isn't there some kind of damage assessment being down by the government if a russian asset, joseph mifsud, palling around with u.k. intelligence, in the united states in february of 2017. where's the damage assessment at this point? >> that's been our major point the whole time. if mifsud was a russian asset, you've got the fbi, the state department, the u.s. congress. all of our allies, nato, boris johnson. they've all been compromised by this russian asset, famous russian asset, joseph mifsud. the fact that they're not doing a damage assessment i think tells you in the american people all you need to know. highly unlikely that mifsud is a russian asset. >> dan: thanks so much for

"new york times" is reporting that trump raised $105 million in the second t quarter. the times notes this is more than obama did in the same quarter of hisha presidency. president trump remarked about the 2020 field, democratic party challengers look somewhat easier to debate than clinton. hillary clinton is casting a
long shadow over the 2020 election. trump critic jonah goldberg writes in a recent editorial that hillary clinton's candidacy was an inflection point for thei country because it made the g.o.p. turn towards nationalism, and the democrats toward socialism. he remarks she will never be president, but she's made history nonetheless. if independent women's way senior fellow lisa boothe and democratic strategist leslie marshall, both -- lisa, i will go to you first. this is the gift of the trump presidency, exposing the left for what they've been essentially for 50 years. i took some notes before i came on. >> is probably a long list. >> dan: i will have to give the cliff notes. in the last few months with her talk us of concentration camps in the west, infanticide, 70% tax rate, health care for illegals, government run health care, the list goes on and on. is this really a 51% majority
agenda? >> i think the biggest challenge is there so many candidates and there's not a lot of daylight between them on this policy issues, so that's why we've seen them try to be -- out-crazy the other one essentially to try to get noted in attention in his crowded primary field but without hillary clinton pushing the price to the left, i think what pushed the party to the left was the fact they saw an establishment candidate like hillary clinton lose. he saw the dnc essentially backer over bernie sanders and that infuriated a lot of progressive people on the left. i think you saw a lot of those types of candidates go forward in the 2018 cycle and more primary content the democrats are used to seeing and just progressives more fired up. based on that. >> dan: 2020 campaign national press secretary kayleigh mcenany. forgive me for not introducing you. if you are a valuable voice in his conversation of course. this agenda i just mentioned to lisa, which granted it's not every democrat. i'm not going to do what they do to us in stereotype the entire party, these are issues that have come up. i'm just quoting some democrats. concentration camps.
julian castro 70% tax rate. health care illegal aliens, everybody raises their hand. how does this play in west virginia, pennsylvania coal country? is this a winner in a swing state likeis pennsylvania? >> no, no, no. far from it. let's be clear, these are asinineth ideas, they are crazy ideas, they are insane. when you have 6% of the nation saying i want border security, 70% saying stricter immigration laws, and what do democrats say? let's decriminalize border crossings. it lets abolish i.c.e. that's a great idea. then they say let's look at late-term abortion. 6% support of abortion until birth and democrats say sounds like a great idea, we will endorse that. they are becoming a the party of the 6%. they can readily take that 6% as we had theak trump campaign and president trump take the other 94% in a landslide reelection on november 3rd 2020. >> dan: leslie, i will go to your next year. i don't see this playing in
middle america. i don't get it, the democrats have tried to lurch to the left before. history is there for us all to read. they tried it with walter mondale running on higher taxes, tried it with mike dukakis. absolutely filleted at the polls in both of thoseth elections. this is not a winner in an electoral college of national election. can they come back from this? >> absolutely. if you look historically in the most recent election, the democrats do in the primary tend to go to the left because of their base and in the general become more to the center and i think this will happen. i want to disagree with jonah though. the left bowl is not hillary clinton. it is all bernie sanders. he got up and said he was a socialist, some of his programs, the fight for $15 minimum wage, medicare for all, these are embraced by all of the candidates in the majority of the democratic party right now and that wasn't hillary, that was all bernie sanders. >> dan: leslie, a brief follow-up with you, i just got a
few seconds. i agree with you that in the past bothto parties move back to the center in the general but now that's getting harder with the internet generation, it's all on tape now. everybody raising their hand, that's going to be used over and over. it wasn't the case 30 years ago where you could slip in a comment here and there. >> i don't think it's going to come down to left or right people looking at a debate and seeing who raised theiray hand. if we look at this -- >> you know how campaigns work. >> the numbers -- >> they are going to put that in and add all those democrats raising their hands. >> that's not health care -- one ncher key difference between now and between this election in 2016 is the fact that president trump is going to have a war chest of money. doesn't have to just rely off that earned media like he did during 2016 cycle, is going to be able to dictate the terms of this message and how that gets across to voters and that's going to be critical for 2020. >> dan: leslie, quick
follow-up.>> >> we have to remember that although we have two dozen people, going to have two people on the stage at the end. not going to dictate that to mike -- may i finished, the democratic candidates going to dictate and were going to see the money spread out among 24 along with the dnc's cash flow, definitely, paired just with buttigieg and sanders half, just with two people, but the president and the rnc race. i'm not worried yet. >> dan: at ladies, thanks a lot, really appreciate it. no doubt about it, liberal cities are in crisis. dozens shot in chicago, conservative attack by antifa in portland and in exploding homeless crisis in multiple major cities. david webb and alan dershowitz will be here when "hannity" returns. ♪
>> dan: welcome back to "hannity." as it's been reported on the show, liberal cities across the nation are in crisis. at leftist policies gone amok. homelessness and poverty are p skyrocketing, lawlessness and shootings are on the rise. breaking news out of chicago tonight, the city is facing turmoil on multiple fronts. fox news correspondent matt finn joins us live in the chicago bureau with the latest. >> this evening chicago police tell us that it was a brutally violent couple of days here over the weekend in the city. between the dates of june 28th and june 30th, chicago police report 52 people were shot, five people were killed, one was a juvenile, andve there were 39 reported shooting incidents just over the weekend. and in light of these staggering weekend crime numbers, chicago police say 2019 has had a 7% fewer homicides in 2018, the lowest since 2016. a police give and part to their gun recovery efforts. and in other news here in chicago tonight, no video obtained by fox news now very
much appears to play to my place actor at the scene of the alleged hoax that might've happened here in chicago. video shows one of the brothers in a reded brimmed hat, that's important because police notes indicate that the brother purchased a red hat to wear during the alleged hoax. also for the first time we have here to what very much looks like just a small at walking around the street in the sameun white's letter to my sweater one police showed up. smollett and his legal team and insist that he is innocent, trud hate crime that had nothing to do with the hoax. >> dan: in his interview with tucker carlson which aired last night, president trump talked with the chaos and homelessness. hatch this. >> you can't have what's happening -- were police officers are getting sick just by watching the bee. if they getting actuallyly very sick, where people are getting sick, where the people living there are too. some of them have mental problems where they don't even
know they are living that way. in fact perhaps they like living that way. they can't do that. we cannot ruin our cities and you have people that work in those cities. they work and office buildings and to get into the building they have to walk through a scene that nobody would have believed possible three years ago. and this is the liberal establishment. this is what i'm fighting. >> dan: in an update to a story we covered last night, portland police released photos of suspects in violent antifa clashes that injured securement conservative writers and others. according -- and his "the new york times" all ignored the antifa violence and beating. joining us now is host a reality check with david webb on fox nation and columnist at the health, david webb. offer of an intro to the mueller report, alan dershowitz. david, i will go to you first. i would see the irony of conservatism is conservative
governance in cities benefits liberals. the opposite is true for liberalism. look at the giuliani yearsed compared to what's happening in new york with the basia. at the is falling apart. >> the reality if you look at dinkins to giuliani and what happened in new york, what happened was proper policing and law enforcement. that's not a left or a right issue. law enforcement is frustrated. i talked to officers in chicago not just about the smollett case, but about how they are policing, and they feel that the agency that runs the city doesn't have their back. it's not just the mayor, but b it's the establishment. and now you're seeing the police in some form of a revolt saying we just want to do our job to protect citizens no matter what. that's common in law enforcement. not the outliers that you occasionally have. in the summer when it heats up, you've seen this, the hot days of summer and lead a variety of things that increase and shootings. robberies are also up. if you look at these reports in the state, are starting to see
if the lagging indicator but you're beginning to see robberies. if you go to the precinct level, the complaints from the commanders, the day commanders, this is a real problem is not only in chicago, but in many cities around the country. liberal-run cities. >> dan: professor dershowitz, wherever you see a liberal monopoly where they are in charge in these big cities, sadly many times you see high crime, you see lawlessness, you see some pockets of poverty that seem unbreakable. what's the common thread here? obviously it seemsms to be this liberal form of government -- governance, and i reading this wrong? >> i think you're reading it wrong. when ed cox was of new york, new york was a wonderful city. i live in new york part of the year now. i think it's a wonderful city. i don't support de blasio for many of his economic reasons, but i think you way, way over say the problems in new york and a tribute to one rather than the other. chicago is a different story. chicago really has very, very serious problems. some of the west coast cities have serious problems, c but i
think they're endemic often to urban centers. where i think we really do have a problem that your initial point made was about antifa. when i've spoken at schools like berkeley, i've been threatenedls by antifa and i really do think the government has to do something to stop extreme left-wing threats and violence to centrist, moderate liberal speakers like me. i'm not radical enough for antifa, so they try to prevent me from speaking that's been a real problem on university campuses.ee we live in a federal system and the federal system gives it to m the cities to make their own mistakes and our own decisions. the president really can't intrude on that except and extreme cases. if we have to leave it to the city and the voters whether they decide what they like from the cities or not. >> on the legal analysis i will refer to alan, great to see her. look pretty good for the summer out there. but the administration had doner
something, and i've had this discussion, i live in new york, i love it like he does, that he had a relationship and an understanding of proper policing and neighborhood policing. that's a key difference. unfortunately indi these cities, that fractured relationship. on the ntp issue, the fbi has waited on them, their activities, he's right about the supremacy clause on a number of issues. i would never argue with his expertise on the. >> dan: kind a bit ridiculous than nt five calls antifascist as they go to the streets and beat people up. kind of interesting. >> i agree. >> thanks, alan. it got to run. it wait until you see our villain of the day, that's next on "hannity." ♪ petsmart's celebrating the fourth, with great deals like...
