11:00 pm
you right here next week. ♪ ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. the crisis at our southern border rages on. armed cartels smuggling drugs and illegal immigrants into the united states, murders mexico soaring record levels, mexican troops intruding on american soil. president trump calling out the radical dems for doing absolutely nothing to straighten out this nation's immigration laws. >> congress must also act to fix, however, our horrible, obsolete, weak, pathetic immigration laws. their seeing the -- they're
11:01 pm
seeing the drugs and they're seeing the human trafficking. the human trafficking is like never before in our history. and this is a world problem, and it's happening all over the world, but for us it's through the southern border. lou: we'll have the latest on the fight for security of that southern border. former border patrol chief mark morgan joins us. and the radical dems, the deep state exposed for their three-year-long conspiracy to attack, to subvert and ultimately try to overthrow the presidency of donald trump. president trump today declared it is time to prosecute the conspirators and all who supported them. >> this has been litigated for the last two the years, almost since i got into office. now, if you want to litigate, go after the dnc, crooked hillary, the dirty cops. all of these things. that's what should be litigated, because that was a rigged system. lou: we take a look at the onlies of what is the big -- the
11:02 pm
origins of what is the biggest political scandal in our nation's history. tom fitton, sebastian gorka and diamond and silk as well. our top story, killings, corruption and caravans at our southern border. president trump today warned of a caravan of thousands moving through mexico now on their way to the u.s. border. and the president says he will shut down sections of the border if the mexican government fails to stop those illegal immigrants. and the president warning as well the mexican government should well understand they better not send troops across our border again and never, ever pull weapons on americans. the president tweeted in the, quote: mexico's soldiers recently pulled guns on our national guard soldiers, probably as a diversionary tactic for drug smugglers on the border. better not happen again. we are now sending armed
11:03 pm
soldiers to the border. mexico is not doing nearly enough in apprehending and returning. joining us now, mark morgan, former u.s. border patrol chief under president obama. mark, great to have you with us. i guess the first question has to be these troops along the border, their commanders sending them out on supposedly surveillance with one m-9 .9 mm pistol between them. what kind of madness is that? they don't understand the cartels control the border? >> i think we just learned a good lesson that the border patrol agents have known for a decade. that's exactly what happened. and the president was pot on, hugh. -- spot on, lou. there's so much corruption on the mexican side, both mexican law enforcement and mexican military. they are absolutely being paid by the cartels to be used as listening posts, observation posts and distractions.
11:04 pm
this isn't anything new for the border patrol. they're encountered this -- they've encountered this before. lou: they've encountered it, soldiers, the president has -- when they hear from the commander in chief that this won't happen again, the mexican government, do you think that they understand it better not happen again? >> lou, absolutely. and that's spot on. this president unequivocally, when he does that, that's why he's got the backing of the border patrol and other law enforcement entities. how powerful and strong of a message that is. he told the mexican government it better not happen again, and i tell ya, if it does, i think there's going to be ramifications, and that's why i support this president on in the issue. lou: and this president talking about sending more armed soldiers to the border, it's -- you have to question, you have to question what in the world the commanders of those soldiers were thinking in sending those people out on a surveillance mission -- any kind of
11:05 pm
mission -- at that corrupt border controlled by cartels. we see pictures every day if you want to pull them up of cartel members armed with semiautomatic rifles, ak-47s, ar-15s, you name it. and here is an infrared, i believe, picture of the cartels escorting a woman and and a kid across the border. i mean, and these folks are carrying heavy 762 weapons. it's the outrageous. and we've got, we've got u.s. soldiers, national guardsmen out there in the middle of nowhere with an m-9. what were they going to do, flip it back and forth to one another when they had a shot? i mean, it's just asinine that the u.s. military would have commanders that would order that and would permit it. >> well, lou, so i don't want to second guess the commanders --
11:06 pm
lou: okay -- >> when they're on the battlefield. lou: so stipulated. that is a battlefield, and it's the moronic of those commanders to put those soldiers in the harm's way like that. absolutely. now you -- so stipulated, i don't want to put you in a bad position. you fire away at whatever you want to say. >> new york i think it's well said, lou, and i understand the point. i don't disagree with that, and i hope that the rules of end gaugement are going to be looked at because this was a wake-up call. not only between the soldiers, but then the episode you just talked about where, you know, armed with ak-47s, cartel members in camouflage uniforms, that border is dangerous. it is not a safe place. and so i hope they all rethink the rules of engagement down along the southwest border for the protection of our soldiers and mers knell. -- personnel. lou: the only excuse i can think of with those commanders and the superior officers of those two soldiers is that they're watching fake news, that they're believing democrats when they
11:07 pm
say there's no crisis. they're, obviously, not informed on what is transpiring right before their very eyes. the cartels are clearly exploiting this opportunity. the president talking about a caravan with as many as 20,000 central american illegal immigrants headed toward the united states. the mexican government making much of having dissuaded 500 of them from continuing their journal -- journey. that leaves 19,500 more. the president has said straightforwardly to mexico stop them and stop all of them. >> that's right. and here's something i've been saying too. look, we've been giving millions of dollars to the northern triangle countries, nothing. we've been trying to get mexico to get off the sidelines and be proactive partners in this resolution, nothing has happened. congress failed to do the job, nothing has happened. so we really need to rechange our mindis set and stop --
11:08 pm
mindset, and we've got to take control of this, and we have got to do what we need to do. is and so when the president tells mexico you need to do your darn job to be part of the solution here or we're shutting down the border, i think he's right on, and i support him. lou: and the idea that this new president, manuel lopez obrador, just in the office less than six months, he has an opportunity to work with this president. this president has reached out to him through his emissaries and envoys. twice his -- i think, believe, don't know this for a fact -- but has intimated he thought he had a teal on this so-called return policy with the mexican government. that hasn't worked out. that means somebody is breaking their word in mexico. it also means that that opportunity for manuel lopez obrador is going to evaporate
11:09 pm
here quickly if he doesn't take this opportunity. the corruption that is mexico right now, most americans don't understand how per vase arive it is -- pervasive it is, how much of mexico it controls and as you were pointing out, how much of that border they control. and, by the way, the murder rate in mexico, already the murder capital of the world, mexico's homicides already this year have risen by almost 10% over last year. last year a record number of murders and killings, nearly all of them, nearly all of them as a result of cartel drug violence. you know, what are you -- what do you think the president should do, what can the united states do other than build the dad gum wall and enforce the dog gone border? >> lou, that's it. you really just summarized a very complex issue very
11:10 pm
succinctly there. look, we've shown the history. mexico, they ebb and flow. they have shown decade after decade they're not going to be part of the solution here, because the cartels -- make no mistake, the american people need to understand, that u.s./mexico border, the cartels own 100% of that. so unless the above of mexico can address the cartels, that problem on their side is going to exist. i think the president has to stay the course on what he's doing. he has to build the wall, get more technology, he has to the get more personnel, he has to fix the laws of the flores agreement to end catch and release, continue to drive the politicians in this country to do their job for this country. he's on the right track, he's doing the right thing, and i hope he doesn't stop. lao lou no, he -- i don't think the man's got stop in him. [laughter] mark, i thank you very much for being with us and always your insight. we appreciate it. thanks very much. >> you bet, lou. lou: still ahead, president trump touts his long list of economic achievements.
11:11 pm
>> stock market and our country from an economic standpoint is doing the best probably it's ever done. unemployment numbers are the best they've ever been by far. we're doing well on trade, we're doing well with china. things are going good. lou: things are going good. that is one of the president's rare understatements. we'll have much more on that, much more with diamond and silk here tonight. up next, president trump slams the radical dems and their neverwith ending effort -- never-ending efforts to end his presidency. we'll be talking about the origins of the witch hunt and corruption that pervades the fbi and the department of justice. stay with us, we'll be right back. did you know with vanishing deductible, you can earn $100 off your deductible for every year of safe driving? sing that. ♪ vanishing deductible, you can... ♪ ♪ earn $100... ♪ earn $100 off... ♪ off your deductible. ♪ deductible.

it's a revolution in sleep.
11:15 pm
the sleep number 360 smart bed, from $999... senses your movement and automatically adjusts on each side to keep you both comfortable. and snoring? how smart is that? smarter sleep. so you can come out swinging, maintain your inner focus, and wake up rested and ready for anything. sleep number is ranked #1 in customer satisfaction with mattresses by j. d. power. save $400 on select sleep number 360 smart beds. only for a limited time. lou: president trump today took on house judiciary committee chairman jerry nadler and his subpoena. a former white house counsel, don mcgahn. >> the subpoena is ridiculous. we have been, i have been the most transparent president and administration in the history of our country by far. we just went through the mueller witch hunt, and they came up with no collusion, and they actually also came up with no
11:16 pm
obstruction. i say it's the enough. get back to infrastructure, get back to cutting taxes, get back to lowering truck prices. that -- drug prices. that's what, really, we should be doing. lou: and fail ifed 2016 presidential candidate hillary clinton, she has surface thed again to claim the only thing preventing an indictment against president trump is that he's this office. the president's attorney, rudy giuliani, says hillary should, well, think before she talk it is. >> there's a woman who really obstruct thed justice. the president didn't delete 33,000 e-mails. he didn't have somebody smash up telephones and wipe out a server and bleach bit it. it used to be a doj standing policy you cannot indict a clinton no matter how much evidence they destroy, no matter how often they lie and no matter that they committed perjury. you can't indict a clinton. lou: that's going to be tested,
11:17 pm
it may now appear. joining us tonight to take up that question and others, judicial watch president tom fitton. tom, great to have you with us. >> hi, lou. lou: let's start with judicial watch's discovery of clinton e-mails in the white house. how could that be? >> it's amazing. we forced this disclosure out of the fbi. look, a federal court granted judicial watch discovery in the e-mail scandal last year. one of the greatest modern offenses to government transparency, and he authorized to send written questions to the top fbi officials. he responded to us under oath in writing that they found clinton e-mails in, among other places, the executive the office of the president of the obama white house. so if you want to know why hillary clinton skated, it's because, as this evidence
11:18 pm
demonstrates sworn testimony from the fbi, it's because the obama white house and barack obama are implicated in the scandal. lou: that's the bottom line here, and that implication is going to lead us where? >> well, not only to at least a reopening of the investigation. look,. in just the last two months or so -- lou: judicial watch investigation. >> right. judicial watch has uncovered five classified e-mails among the e-mails that hillary clinton tried to delete or destroy -- lou: right. >> -- fbi notes of the sham investigation in 2016, and the notes literally say clinton cover-up operation. they're quoting her i.t. team -- lou: say that again. say that again. >> clinton cover-up operation. lou: that's extraordinary. >> so they literally -- lou: because that would be an open and shut case, right? >> well, the fbi case has
11:19 pm
evidence documenting, quote, a clinton cover-up -- and mrs. clinton is claiming president trump would have been indicted but for the fact that he's prime minister. lou: -- that he's president. lou: except that there's no crime. other than that, there would have been a problem. >> other than that. you've got this in your face evidence, and people want the know how the russia investigation began. it began with her and it was gun to protect her. it was begun to protect her. because they knew if the eye of justice focused on anything other than hillary clinton, she would have been prosecuted and a lot of other people around her including in the obama administration would have faced justice. so now that the mueller investigation and the russia hoax has been exposed as the fraud it is, now maybe justice can focus on hillary clinton. in the meantime, we have
11:20 pm
witnesses coming in being questioned under oath. it's the incredible that we're doing this and the justice department has yet to get its contact together. they -- its act together. lou, there's a lot of reform necessary to get some justice in this town. lou: are they still fighting you even after the arrival of william barr the attorney general? >> yes. lou: and have you taken that up with the attorney general's office? >> no, i have not. and, for instance, you know, we're taking the depositions of these individuals, and there are videotapes of the depositions, and the justice department has come in and said those videotapes should not be public. and that serves to protect the former obama and clinton top aides. it's the unbelievable. lou: so it sounds like someone within the justice department and the fbi, they're trying very hard to perpetuate a level of political corruption that i can't believe william barr would
11:21 pm
permit. >> well, you know, the charitable interpretation is he's only there a few months, and he's had orr things on his plate -- other things on his plate, but i suggest he focuses on being on the right side of the effort to get the truth on hillary clinton and what she was up to. lou: president trump said a very, i think, very important thing about transparency, and i want to get your judgment about it. he said that this is the most transparent administration in history. i think without question by light years it is certainly the most transparent compared to, certainly, the obama administration which was one of the least even though president obama promised his would be transparent. what is your reaction to the president's statement? >> i think at the presidential level he's absolutely right. the white house has been an open book, relatively speaking, especially with their unprecedented cooperation with the mueller witch hunt.
11:22 pm
certainly, the president's tweet over which he's criticized -- lou: criticizes candor, directness, straightforwardness and a direct statement to the american people every day. >> remarkable and historic transparency by the president. now, the president, in my view, should bring that transparency he brings to his tweets to the rest of his agencies and tell everyone, look, the cover-up for the deep state is over, it's all hands on deck in terms of getting all these documents out to those who have been investigating like judicial watch, the state department, the cia, the nsa, justice, fbi, a all of that deep state conspiracy against the president and the republic. lou: you know, and you use the word "hoax." this was an attempt to overthrow the president. on this broadcast i'm not going to use the word hoax again, because it was an effort to overthrow the president of the united states.
11:23 pm
there's nothing benign about this and nothing trivial. i hope that the president, i hope that the attorney general start prosecuting everyone within the justice department, the fbi, the deep state, the democratic party certainly, anyone connected with that conspiracy. >> crimes were committed, lou. they targeted the president and other innocents, and these crime victims need to be vindicated through justice department prosecutions, that's for sure. this ought to be priority one for the attorney general. lou: tom fitton, as always, thank you very much. and it is the only way i know of to assure what the president wants, which is that no president ever have to contend with what he has had to contend since the day he not only was inaugurated, but for months as candidate. stay with us, we're coming right back. ♪ ♪ -keith used to be great to road-trip with.

lou: joining me now, james freeman, assistant editor of "the wall street journal"'s editorial page, fox news contributor, great american. >> oh, thank you. lou: "the wall street journal," i want to start out with one of their stories which i think is just extraordinary, that china is exploiting u.s. satellites in order to extend their command and control and communications to their troops in the, from the south china sea to wherever they want to communicate. it's remarkable, and it's bard, that technology is barred by -- barred by u.s. law. >> right. i think this is one, i guess, effect over a couple of decades to integrate and kind of welcome china into the world economy. and i think as has increasingly been apparent over the last several years that this sort of liberalization in china ended some years ago, and we have -- lou: and, apparently, the wags at the global 1000 and the
11:29 pm
chamber of commerce missed it. >> well, it's interesting. i mean, we have in xi jinping a really old school communist thug. and i think it's taken a while for some people to recognize that. lou: yeah. you wonder why, it's fairly clear. and i just wanted to -- going to the satellite issue, the chinese have done something that i think is exemplary of their, of the panache that they bring to international relations and foreign policy. they are renting that space on our satellites because it is prescribed that they shall not be able to buy that advanced technology. and yet here we are. >> yeah. i think in terms of technology, i'm actually -- beyond this specific case, i think we can beat them in technology. i think there's a sense that they're sort of dominating all these fields. i think our model still works better, i think theirs doesn't -- lou: in no the way am i
11:30 pm
suggesting, i'm just suggesting they're sly, clever in the way in which they have exploited a loophole which is that we prevent renting that advanced technology, but we won't sell it to you. >> and, you know, huawei, which we've tried to per sways much of the -- persuade much of the world not to use, obviously, crushing it in terms of big sales around the world. so we haven't succeeded on that front. lou: speaking of succeeding, the president's succeeding, exonerated, vindicated by the mueller report. and on this broadcast we are focusing on the efforts by radical dems, the left and much of the establishment period who have tried to overthrow this president. why is there such a hesitation in the national media to acknowledge what this was, an attempt to overthrow a, the -- a duly elected president of the
11:31 pm
united states and his government? >> it's a big problem. much of the people in our industry are seeing the collusion story fall a apart and have just kind of moved right into the full embrace of the obstruction claim and continuing this kind of -- lou: this is idiotic. >> -- relentless attack on the president. he's allowed to fire people who work for hum. he runs our executive branch. but i think the markets have been providing a nice reality check, because you consume much of u.s. media, and you're told that he is a unique threat who's trashing the rule of law and constitutional norms, and then invest thers get to decide, and they are looking at the united states, and they care about the rule of law, and they're obviously not agreeing with that media analysis. you see the market -- lou: [inaudible] this kind of economic growth, this kind of appreciation in our equities markets, and we're talking $9 trillion, ladies and gentlemen. >> right. lou: this is stun thing stuff.

11:38 pm
who tried to overthrow his presidency? >> lou, back in may of 2017 it was just the two of us in the oval office and the president said with regards to russia, they will find nothing because there is nothing. we have to wait two years, we have to spend $35 million to have that confirmed. of course he's relieved, but if you look at what's happening with regards to impeachment, it's absolutely mind-numbing. we -- lou: you know, not even the radical dems, in my judgment, are dumb enough, dumb enough to go there. i mean, they are dim, there's no question about it, but that dumb? byron, what do you think? >> well, you know, i think with the democrats you really have tree groups right now -- three groups. you have the zealots on capitol hill who do want to impeach as soon as they can. then you have a lot of democrats, some of them very newly elected who would just
11:39 pm
kind of like to lay low, not do impeachment, not alienate a lot of their voters. and the last group is this group running for president who, i think, are -- [laughter] it's always easy to attack the president, but i believe they're becoming more and more interested in differentiating themselves from each other. so would you like to have the boston marathon bomber be able to vote in prison? i mean, they're going to start, you know, trip thing themselves up -- tripping themselves up over questions like that. lou: and tripping themselves up with these ridiculous efforts of the committee chairmen to subpoena the president of the united states, subpoenaing the president's counselor, his attorney, don mcgahn, and you've got a barrage of idiots on the air saying that he -- the president waived his executive privilege when mcbegan talked to the special counsel.
11:40 pm
seb, your thoughts. >> we used to have innocent until proven guilty, then we have pronounced guilty despite any evidence, and now the democrats have created a new standard, you're guilty despite having been proved innocent. that's the mueller report. we have the conclusion. the founder of the proto-kgb said it the best, show me the man, and i will find you the crime. the democrats are fishing, fishing, fishing until they find something that they can hoist the president on his part, but i saw the president yesterday. they do not realize that they are attempting by challenging him yet again. lou: well, i have to say again, then they're even dumber than they've acted so far with control of the house of representatives, because they just haven't been paying attention. and no matter what the old soviets said about show me the
11:41 pm
man, i'll find the crime, this ridiculous, preposterous special counsel, this attempt to overthrow the president of the united states, they didn't find a crime. period. >> on this mcgann thing, it's really quite interesting because i think if you listen to the democrats and their supporters, they want a t show. they realize -- a tv show. they realize that a 400-page report is not going to be read by a lot of viewers. they're not getting their message out as much. obviously, mueller did not find collusion, so they think that if they can just put mcgann on television, it'll be watergate all over again. so if they can put him in a witness chair, have video, television going and have him repeat the things that he said to mueller in his 30 hours of testimony, then maybe they can stir things up in a way they've not within able to do so til now. lou: well, but they also need to at least pretend they understand something about the law. and no, no one including mcg
11:42 pm
ahn waived their right to the executive privilege by testifying to, as alex vogel of the vogel group said today on fox, by testifying to another executive branch member, i.e., the special counsel and the attorney general. byron york, sebastian gorka, thank you both for being with us. great to see you. we'll be right back. so with xfinity mobile
