tv Lou Dobbs Tonight FOX Business June 13, 2018 11:00pm-11:59pm EDT
lou: that's it for us tonight. be with us tomorrow. the doj inspector general's rt set to be released. i can'tait. canas a great meeting and i hope we get a lot more. in the meantime, here's lou. lou: good evening. our top stories, a battle for the soul of the republican party now under way. whether rino speaker paul ryan will be allowed to leave the party to certain defeat in the mid-terms. following his masters, the business round table and the chamber of commerce and the kh brothers into the abyss. or will lawmakers follow trump and legislate first and foremost for american working families and the middle class who have been run over by the donor class and the establishment that controlled the gop for decades.
the establishment, ryan and senate majority leader mcconnell were stunned by last night's primary results. president trump again the winner as were the candidates he endoed. voters in s carolina siding with kate arrington, the candidate who embraced the trump agenda and challenged mark sanford an establishment never trumper. >> we are the party of president donald j. trump. lou: katie arrington is joining us here tonight. we'll be talking about the trump agenda. the fight also raging on capitol hill where deep state forces determined to subvert president trump also want to take over congress. flagrantly ignoring subpoenas for documents and information
and stonewalling congressional ersight investigaon investigations into clinton corruption and obama spygate. the justice department corruption in full display. we'll be talking with charlie hurt of the washington times. he weighs in on why not a single republican leader in congress has so much as raised a finger to fight the blatant effort by the corrupt doj to take over the legislative branch. californians will soon have a chance to further demonstrate their pitical lunacy. we'll explain a controversial ballot measure that will allow voters to partition the state into three radical fringe enclaves. our top sry. the republican wave has become a trump wave forhe m-terms. but out of control rinos are
threatening to kill their political momentum handed to them by president trump and turn victory into defeat. katie arrington in south candidates whorad theg list of america first agenda of president trump. they include roger wicker of mississippi. ad laxalt in nevada. john cox in california. and asa hutchinson in arkansas. all this as paul ryan pushes for amnesty for illegal immigrants. he said he'll hold votes on two daca bills that will create an electoral disaster for reans in november. >> this an effort to bring our caucus together on immigration. we have an actual chance in
making law in solving this problem. lou: making law and doing it the ryan way. heasn't shown anybody the xt. this legislation is being written in back rooms in the dark of night. my next guest joins me top discuss the severe abyss that awaits members of congress who sign on to the ryan ploy for the establishment and the rinos, all who will embrace his ryan first putting america -- somewhere around last. joining us tonight iscan congressman andy biggs of arizona. the president with a great showing again in the primaries. it should be clear to everyone except for your leadership here in the house and the senate than if they do not support this president and his agenda,
electoral disaster awaits the entire republican conference. what do you think? >> i think this is trump's time. and i think it's easy for peoe like me to say i got elected on the trump agenda, president trump got elected on that agenda. if you are not going to follow and keep the promises you made, around. probably not going to be he made pmiseso american people. he's doing everything he can to keep the promises. there are those not just in congress, but elsewhere in the political system that don't like donald trump, they don't like his agenda. i am not even sure it's his agenda. i think it's a personal attack on the president. i say let's get it done. if we don't, it will be a disaster for republicans in the mid-terms. lou: i don't think you can separate this president from
this agenda. this is a man who is recognizing the american working family, the american middle class that has been shrinking. wages are for the first time 20 years rising. this economy is all about the prosperity of trumpmics. the foreign leadership and foreign policy. donald trump has turned this country around in less than a year and a half. and you have got paul ryan who is acting like as he does the bidding of his masters on k street,s selling out your party. i keep talking to members of your conference. republicans leaders in point of fact, including in the freedom caucus, congressman, who act like we are gng to ignore ryan and maybe he'll not harm us too badly if we follow in lock step
right into the chasm that awaits them in november. >> you are right on that, lou. the agenda is what got president trump elected. but let's talk about the daca thing for a second. i hear people say don't say the amnesty word. what do youheca fix t daca is? it's amnesty. it's everything the president campaigned against. i think that opensp a blue wave. because you are not keeping your promises. and that gets to the trump agenda all over again it's easy to make it up and say we are not going -- it's not amnesty. but it is amnesty. anybody else is outside the countr so i fear to see the bill come
up next week. lou: we have 2eople in your conference who signed on. they revealed themselves for what they are. more not on rinos. and they sold out their party. they are selling out their own tegrit and they are work as hard as y don have the guts to they are. be democrats or guts to be raightforward. yourarty is filled with more cowards than any time i have seen the republican party used to and for somethi. it stand for a sinecure lame duck speaker. we'll bealking with ed rollins. the smartest political strategist in the country. served in three political administrations. i think the number is 50 the mber o seats you will lose if they sign on to the ryan chant.
i can't believe the freedom caucus, jim jordan, i can't believe anyone in that caucus would stand with that. because thenow he's only doing with charles coke tells him to do. >> i ntanding for that because i made a promise i keep those promises. when we look at the republican party today. it's trump's party. i think it's moving that way. because the people in america support presiderump and his agenda. that's what we should be keeping our promises as. this is real simple. you run an ad that says donald trump and his agenda. you talk about all the things you just mentioned. you say there is only one candidate that would suprt this agenda and you put out who that is. thin refined people there i one candidate who would be willing to impeach this president and
you point out who that is. that's when we'll start winning these mid-term elections. they want this agenda. they sense it. lou: around straight short, you always have been. ex lane to me again why yourcons a rino, a shameless coward. he hasn'tai a word about supporting the president against the outrageous special counsel. he hasn't said a word, he undercut the president on the wall, wouldn't give him a dime. hasn't explained why he reduced immigration and customs enforcement as the president is asking for greater enforcement and more border security and the american people are demanding it. and you have got a speaker who is trying to raise the retirement age for social security to 70 and to reduce entitlements. the man is a poster boy that
would be admitted by the democrats on almost every issue. yet you put up with paul ryan. >> i can't explain what my colleagues do. i -- we should be subpoenaing and holding in contempt people like rod rosenstein and the doj. we need to support the leadership to help us. because they have got it. i call upon you to help us. i d an idea, lou. while you were just talking a second ago. we don't have to have a member of congress be a speaker. how about if i nome nate you? i think that we might have -- i think there might be two votes, not just two votes. i would say just two votes shy, two votes. i would be proud to have two
votes and be disappointed myself if i were to run. andy biggs, a great guy. reamark sanford now warning felw repuicans about their failure to embrace the president and the consequences that result. he said this. they don't want the tweet i got last flight. there is no motivation like self-motivation. we'll talk with katie arrington, theepublican candidate who trounced sanford. and the dean ed rollins joining me next. we'll talk about the trump effect onop pri. and we'll talk about the rino effect on the nation he refuses to serve. stay with us.
he loves charles koch. the man is in love with the establishment status quo. his masters. stay with us. you're turning onto the street when you barely clip a passing car. minor accident-no big deal, right? wrong. your insurance company is gonna raise your rate after the other car got a scratch so small you coulda fixed it with a pen. maybe you should take that pen and use it to sign up with a different insurance company. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise their rates because of their first accident. liberty stands with you. liberty mutual insurance. feeclaritin and relief fromwsy mptoms caused by over 200 allergens. like those from buddy. because stuffed animals are clearly no substitute for real ones. feel the clarity.
lou: canada's government run by the deceitful justin trudeau trying to do an end-round around president trump colluding with rino senators and dems to preserve unfair trade deficits that rob american workers and cut into this country's economic growth rate. there is a cost here. trillions of dollars, we haven't run a trade surplus in 43 years. here is the canadian foreign minister alongside never trumper republican senator bob corker as he hammers out a proposal trying to block the president's tariffs on steel a aluminum with the always alert bob menendez on the other side. canada plans to impose tar you rivers on u.s. goods july 1
last month mexico imposed around rivers and canada never permits dairy into the discussion across their borders. this is not a levellang field. it's just amazing the indoctrination, the propaganda so many administrations have spewed. this president is making certain everybody understanded the high cost of free trade. the administration announcing it will issue tariffs on $50 million in chinese goods. joining me now as i said, the dean himself. ed rollins, great american, great friend. great to have here. ed: thank you, mr. speaker.
you are going to send them all home and let the president run the country. lou: what are we to say about this? speaker ryan is a fraud, a sham, a boot liquo -- a boot licker fe establishment. the business round table. d to hell with the american people. this man is so bought out he as well have a nascar suit on. ed: the state senate seat had been held for 18 years by i told you when he was on they. ticket he lost theome state. lou: and his hometown. ed: i think at the end of the day he needs to get out of the way. the president's agenda is what
republicans ought to be running on. the contract with america is basically president trump's contract. let's fix it and do the things he wants to do. ryan said i will go back to the old method of letting committees hold hearings. you have an immigration bill bob goodlatte put forward. it should be unanimous support of republicans and it won't be. lou: he said there would be debate and he lied. he couldn't produce a budget. he pushed through an omnibus spending bill. we'll see that process repeat itself in three months. this is such a f and such a sellout. how can the confence of republicans tolerate his presence in the speaker's office. ed: it's beyond me.
once he made the decision not to be speaker, i think he gives the up. no one is entitled to be speaker and setting an agenda. there are aot of good reans whoant to setn agenda. lou: he wants 70 years as a retirement age for social security. he wants to cut entitlements. he wants this program called a better way which is a bunch of mediocre dribble. this speas not had an original idea in his entire life. and he's sitting will leading the conference. ed: the people who wt social security. they want to continue. they want to strengthen it. they don't want it altered. the entitlement programs are not welfare programs.
lou: "saving private ryan" ohsp. and ryan rinos. the democrats will have a i think there are at least 60 or 70. unless they wrap around president trump's agenda. two have years of great leadership, they won't do well. lou: what do you tha the prident is on brdoth of bills ryan will put up for a vote. are amnesty bills next week. ed: i think it's outrageous the president does that. he has been misled by his staff. no one has seen these bills. i think if the president signs on web's been mislead by his own
team it's not what he ran on and stor in the campaign. lou: the great enemy in this country is fake news. but there is so much of it surrounding the white we don't know if he'll promise a veto to promised support of a disastrous piece of legislation. ed: anything drafted in the speaker's office behind closed doors won't be a good bill. lou: wt is it "the shington post" says, democracy dies in darkness. capitol hill could use some illumination. ed rollinsnks so much. appreciate it. be sure to vote in our poll. do you believe it's imperative for the rino learsp to get out of the way so the republican
party wins in november. cast your vote @loudobbs. coming up next. attorney general jeff sessions actually demonstrating loyalty to the deep state over th o over president trump. what? we'll be right back. how do you win at business? stay at la quinta. where we're changing with stylish make en at your next meeting, set your seat height to its . bravo, tall meeting man. start winning today. book now at lq.com

lou: well, mia attorney general jeff sessions showing his loyalty to the deep state over president trump, allowing deputy ag rod rosenstein to stall wal congressional document requests and intimidate members of congress who dare to challenge him. sessions denied reports that rosenstein threatened members of the house intel committee and their staff with subpoenas over a closed door meeting over
document requests that have been stole walled since january. >> i'm confident that deputy rosenstein, 28 years in the department of justice, did not improperly threaten anyone on that occasion. since january a great deal of progress has been made. we understand in this department that we are accountable to the president, we are accountable to congress. and we need to be cooperative with them. lou: well, that's really an interesting statement, isn't it? charlie hurt, washington times opinion editor. great to see you. >> great to see you, lou. lou: welcome to the big studio. >> good to be here. lou: let's turn to the statement by the attorney general. accountable to the president, really? and defending rosenstein who absolutely, according to the testimony of two staffers, threatened him. i mean, this thing is gettinged gettingabsurd now.
the lies are not remotely credible. >> they don't even line up. and if you look at the statement that doj official gave to fox news about -- in response to these accusations, they denied that he threatened them. but the denial actually reinforced that in facte did threaten them. and not only did he threaten them with subpoenas for their texts and e-mails and messages, but in that message sent yesterday, they went further and said in fact rod rosenstein hopes they're still complying with the retention of documents. lou: on its face is absolutely lud crowludicrous because they'd the request ofse over sight, house intelligence committee and house you dish rare committee, it's approaching nine months. >> and of course the doj has absolutely no authority whatsoever to make such a
questf members of congress. rod rosenstein has never been elected to anything and he's thumbing his nose at the president, he's thumbing his nose at these members of congress who have an absolute responsibility to oversee what they're doing. lou: and i'm going to say this. this attorney general is not only missing in action, this attorney general is missing the point of so many issues, to defend stonewalling and then call it transparency, as he attempted to dore. there is something tearily, terribly wrong with jeff sessions. and there needs to be an intervention. it's desperately required for the good the nation. i don't know what in the world has happened to the man. >> yeah. it's hard to figure that out. but i can only assume that he feels like, you know, a little bit like a baseball manager who has to go out there and stick up for his guy. because it is, as you say,
indefensible. i hope congress goes ahead with contempt of congress charges against rod rosenstein. lou: they haven't got the guts. >> they better fd the guts. an i would go farther to say they ought to impeach the guy. lou: they haven't got to guts. >> maybe you should run for congre. you would do it. lou: there's no telling what would do. because i couldn't tolerate being associated with people who haven't got the guts to stand up for the country. and that's exactly what we're watch in the republican congress when they permit a fraud and a shameless fraud like paul ryan to lead the conference into disaster, i just can't even conceive of what is motivating them. can>> no, i really can't. except that i do think that, you know, they get lulled into this idea that the status quo is the way things happen a they're all terrified of the next election. they're teared fied of actually fixing things and making things happen and it's why we're in the
disaster that we're in. lou: think about an 18-year-old man or woman in this country watching what is happening. they look at the justice department and see nothing but corruption. they look at their congress and it doesn't much matter which party and you look at wow wardss who flock together to a leader who would teach them something other tn their own anate orthodoxy. this is not a washington that is filled with role models, except at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. >> no. it's almost a paralysis of leadership, i think, throughout washington and in congress. and if i were to criticize donald trump for anything, it would be that he's not even more outraged. he's not making more outrageous demantsdz. he has the power. he has the authority to shut down entire departments if he wanted to. lou: i would rather he open them up. i would rather he make good on
his promise of transparency. and il if he doesn't fire rosenstein and sessions, give them a direct order. turn over the documents to the oversight committees, do it forth with without excuse and delay so help you god. absolutely should stepn there and continue making these demands. and i think they ought to impeach rosenstein. lou: i will take unfortunately the ender on that. don't think they've got the guts. if. >> you're probably right. lou: they won't even speak with courage let alone act with it. i hope i'm wrong and i certainly hope you're right, as you often, often and frequently and regularly are. >> rarely. lou: charles hurt, blushing at the flattery. up next, a huge win for state primary candidates who support president trump and his americairst agenda and one of the winners congressional

feating never trumper incumbent open off-time problem for the president, mark sanford. president trump tweeted his support for arrington hours before the polls closed last night. and earlier today the president congratulated her tweeting this, my political representatives didn't want me to get involved in the mark sanford primary, thint anford would easily win. but with a few hours left, i felt katie was such a good candidate and sanford was soad i had to give it shot. congrats to katie arrington. joining us tonight with her fresh win and party nomination, south carolina congressional candidate, katie arrington. congratulations. >> thank you. lou: the president being candid and always and straightforward. his political gurus didn't want him to get involved. he said he's got to. and aren't you glad. >> i definitely appreciate the
president taking the tim to tweet him being a busy man. look at what he's done the past few days. it's amazing. lou: one of the exciting things about having the president in the oval office. he doesn't pretend to do one thing at a time. this is a man w multitasks. he's smart. fi with energy. nobody is close second. and he gets more done in a day than any other president i've been aware of over the course of my life. and you endorse his agenda and do you think that made the dierce in the race against sanford? >> well, i think that thisace, you know, people want a change, no doubt. and knocking on thousands of doors, i mean this campaign was a lotk. it was months and months and months of grass roots effts knocking on doors. but the first question anybody seemed to ask whenever we went to the door is do you support or president or do you not.
and universally it was, we are supportive of president trump's bold conservative agenda. and having somebody in washington who has the backbone to stand with our president was something that people in south carolina wanted. lou: i think that's absolutely true. and i think -- and so you, you it clear to your district, your voters that you're going to support the trump agenda, made it clearly and unequivocally. >> chris call clear. crystal clear. lou: what would your counsel to otheandidates run whog are going to be up for election, who are up for election. 40 republicans have already resigned from the house and, by the way, in most cases i would say good riddance. they really should be running as democrats and serving but they didn't have the guts. >> we are at war. when you look at this, it is a war to ensure that our
conservative agenda is maintained. we have to have the backbone to stand up for what we stump out on the campaigns and say. we have to commend president trump. promises made promises kept. most of the people that ran in 2016 came with the agenda. they understood that the border wall w important and needed to be built. that they understood that we needed to repeal and replace obamobamacare. and where were they? we need to have people in washington who are not career politicians, who are there to get the job done. time is of the essence. and let's look at president trump and wha. and what you said, sir is exactly right. he gets more done in a day than most people get done in two weeks. we he to havet result out of congress. it's necessary our days are precious on this earth and we need to make the most of them every single day. lou: i couldn't agree with you more. and to think, to think that the speakership right now is in the hands of a man who's done
nothing. he's passed three bills in his entire career, 20 years in congress and yet he ends up speaker. he is a representative and a pure bought and paid for representative of k street, lobbyists, the business round table, the chamber of commerce, the koch brothers, just to name a few, if i may. it's a sad sad thing. and for you running for congress, it's got to be at least partially would think, disappointing to you. >> it is. i mean we go in and -- our founding fathers, you know, wrote the constitution on the trins. principle of citizen legislatures 's about having the people -- what president trump brought back to us is we the people. and congress has been dragging their feet on that. you seryou're see in this electn cycle, this primary cycle, we want that. that's what we're craving. that's why we elected president
trump. we wanted a businessman, we didn't want a politician. we wanted somebody who was going to make a promise and knew how to follow up and keep it. what you're seeing right now is a resounding backup statement to that in the electorate that the people that are out there, we want that. we're craving it. lou: promises made, promises kept. katie arrington, congratulations on your win and all of the very best of luck. >> thank you so much. i hope to talk to you soon. lou: look guard to it. thank y up next, a radical plan to convert the land of left wing loons into three states. our full report on crazy california, got to love that left coast. ♪ this is a jungle gym... and a baseball diamo... ...a mythical castle ...and a grand banquet hall. this is not just a yard.

lou: california is no stranger to political lunacy and controversialew ballot measure proves that point once again. voter wills get a chance in november to decide whe the state is so good it should be split up intohree. fox news senior correspondent adam housely in clirve california with our report. >> so imagine that, the country's most populous state, the third largest in size, fifth largest economy in the world being spliced up into three could start the process this
mall. the voters going to the polls to decide whether california needs to be three. first there would be california, which is basically los angeles wob ventura, second would be southern california, central california and southern california from fresno down to san diego, and then third would be northern california, which would be the bay area, sacramento now of course where the current capital is, we country to the border of oregon. the voters gets to decide this. tim draper says they've got more than 6,000ignatures, men enough to qualify for the november ballot. why three states? the main argument has been that l.a. and the bay area forgot about the rest of california and that dividing the state, assets and liabilities among three states making decisions about taxes and spendinge beneficial. now supporters say citizens wod be better served by all of this, three smaller state governments while opponents say
that the plan would create chaos. the initiative does say, quote, divides california into three states, subject to the approval of congress. assigns each to aew state, directs governor to request that congress grants approval within 12 months. getting congress to pass this is the real catch. most likely that won't happen. also keep many mind, california has tried to separate before, at least there was talk of ait few years ago, talk of making california six states. and there ice an ooing movement in the northern part of california to create the state of jefferson. lou? lou: california. amazing. three versions. my goodness. up next, outgoinghino republican senator bob corker says the republican party has become cult-like in its support of prentrump. corker well, you remember him. he is a never-trumper, never very original and sortf sad

sick posingapore summit and thet fun it is to watch the national left wing media contort itself to avoid saying the obvious, which is what an amazing, extraordinary, historic moment for this president and the country. >> it was an extraordinary and historic moment. and of course it'air to say we don't know what the long-term result wille. will kim jong-un keep the agreement. here's the difference. if he doesn't, donald trump is not barack obama nor is he george w. bush or bill clinton. and fe he thinks the respo mattis, john bolton, mike pompeo and donald trump is going to be one of oh, you didn't keep th bargain, well, fine. no problems. i think kim jong-un has the clear understanding that when donald trump says that fire and fury will be the result of a continued nuclear program, i think he totally understands that president trump is not joking about it. lou: one cannot imagine mike
pompeo, for example, being dispatched by the president to tell kim jong-un if he were to violate this deal, the basic agreement, i'm sorry, as john kerry said the ayatollahs when they took our service members prisoner in the psian gulf. i'm sorry. you know, it's still one of the great nonsectors of diplomacy. >> president trump won't be sending james taylor over to strum "you've got a friend." lou: i like the way you think. i love that. the midterm elections, the trump effect is working. it'straighorward b apparently paul ryan, mitch mcconnell, the republican party, at least they're represented by the leadership on capitol hill don't get it.
ronna mcdaniel, the chair of the rnc, she gets it big time. >> well, i think most everybody who voted for donald trump,nd many whoidn't but now who say, i didn't vote for the guy but by golly, he's delivering onis promises. he cut taxes, restored america's place in the world. he's creating historic agreements. we've cut regulations, businesses at a all-time high. a guy said today we're making more money today than we ever had in the business. he he's in the transportation business. he says, i love donald trump. he loves him because he's giving people jobs and the people are making more money than they've ever made in their lives. when people don't get that, it's because they live in a tiny bubble of d.c. and they brief their own exhaled hair and it's making them very very ill. lou: and mark sanford who was crushed by katie arrington in south carolina for the republican nomination to the house, i mean, you k he said it to all republicans who were
