set your dvr, because tomorrow night, marcus luttrell, on whom "lone survivor" is based, will join me tomorrow, hope to see you there. and a new book claims that aides on hillary clinton's 2008 presidential campaign kept an enemy's list of fellow democrats who betrayed her. dick morris is here with the reaction to the hit list. and more trouble for the new jersey governor chris christie, first it was bridgegate, now he is facing a federal probably over sandy relief fund. and we'll have more on the suspension of alex rodriguez. >> was alex injecting himself? >> at times he would ask me to inject. >> it is all about having fun
some people may go to see a movie, some may ride the train in their underwear. all of this, plus, the most outrageous videos, "hannity" starts now. and welcome to "hannity." you don't want to get on her bad side, a new book shows how hillary clinton kept a nice and naughty list, and kept them for people who offended her. more on the new book, state secrets and the re-birth of hillary clinton. they were posted on line and on politico. now, they read in part, quote, almost six years later most clinton aides can still rattle off names of the traitors and favors that had been done for them, and each of the guilty, and how they had gone on to betray the clintons. now, the data shows they went on to make sure the sinners would
never be forgotten, and questions on whether they endorsed barack obama, or had represented them on a political post or written for a recommendation to an elite school. each democratic member of congress was assigned a grade from one to seven with the most helpful earning a one, the most treacherous drawing sevens, now, the set of sevens includes jay rockefeller, patrick leahy, and we want to know what you think about this. share your thoughts on facebook, use the hash tag hannity, my address if you want to join us. first, radio talk show host, wpht, 12:10, how are you, dick? >> well, if it is one to seven,
i'm very proud to be a ten. >> i think you're closer to a thousand, you have a whole category unto yourself. this describes the clinton issues that you have talked about, wrote about, the secret police, right? >> we've said there is a trend to hillary clinton. a nixonian keeping score, being on top of an enemy's list. two incidents come to mind. one is that she set up this bimbo list on the campaign, betsy wright, to develop blackmail material so they could be cowed into silence. and the other is a story that stands out so strongly, bill had a birthday party at the rockefeller center, and was disrupted by some gay demonstrators. and i met with hillary a day or two later.
and she said did you see those demonstrators. and i said yeah, and she said the tickets were a thousand dollars each. they couldn't afford them themselves, the republicans paid for their tickets and put them there. and she said the same thing is going to happen at our convention next week, i want social security numbers, ticket numbers on the people in our gallery, otherwise they're going to do that to us. i knew enough not to argue, the next morning i mentioned it to bill. h he said we're not going to do that. but there is a nixonian quality to hillary clinton. >> and the media reaction to chris christie. he did something pretty dynamic and boxed himself in, went out, answered question, fired the people responsible and left no wiggle room for himself.
you know, you compare the enemy's list and you get graded one to seven if you support her or don't. >> and that they completely sat on the iraq story and let chris christie wipe it off the page. here you have a candidate for the office, and said she allowed her ambitions to get in the way regarding the support of combat in iraq. when i used to meet with clinton, he would always tell me you can never give me advice on foreign policy in person, always do it behind closed doors. he didn't want anybody to think he was injecting politics. >> we know there is a double standard, i get it. what are her obstacles? if she appears to be the appointed nominee, is it going to be what difference does it make? i don't think anybody is going to care what happened back in
the clinton years, do you at this point? >> no, i don't think so, the nice thing about the clintons, the scandals keep updating themselves. we have had two in the past two weeks. i think in the general, obama will have terrible ratings and obama care will be her big obstacle. but there is a real challenge that a left wing challenger like elizabeth warren could derail her in the democratic primary. there is a new finite defined left wing of the democratic party that is emerging. elizabeth warren is probably a prime example, bill de blasio. they want to raise the social security benefits, reduce the retirement age, eliminate the ceo salaries. and those are not positions that hillary will support. and with hillary's contributions from goldman sachs and others she is really vulnerable to a
left-wing challenge, just like she was in 2008. >> why do i keep hearing whis r whispers that she had health issues that were par more severe than was publicly revealed? have you heard the same things, and if so what? >> no, you know, i don't have any information. but the minute she left the secretary of state, the first two things she did wasches for goldman sachs at $200,000 each. the left wing of the democratic party is not going to be happy about that. and hillary's close connections with wall street i think are really going to hurt her with the left wing of the party. we could see a re-play of 2008. >> and you have no doubt she is running? >> well, if she is breathing, she is running, sean. >> if she is breathing she is running, is that your line? >> yes, that is my line, if there is a pulse to the
candadicy. >> who wants it more, her or him? >> if she wins, it will be like a vindication of his impeachment. >> all right, is christie going to get out of the pickle he is in? >> well, christian empty is not home free, he is giving an air tight denial, it is not that simple, how did they learn about the traffic configuration? why did christie hang in there saying there was a study after there wasn't any. why did he wait days, after the staff said there was no study? lots of questions there. and every one of those questions has to hurt christie, the question is how much. i think it is so interesting. it is so interesting, the two frontrunners have problems right now. >> all right, dick morris, thank you. and speaking of the governor, chris christie, he is now being accused of misusing the sandy relief funds, even though he is
saying the white house approved it. also, next, the yankees slugger alex rodriguez now sued the mlb after his suspension, alex rodriguez, the one and only, and never shy, joe tacapino, explaining the new action he is taking on behalf of a-rod. and defense secretary robert gates, i'll ask him about his new explosive book, and our panel, and much more right here on fox, 10 eastern.

and it is not for the traffic jam on the george washington bridge. the federal investigators are looking into whether or not governor christie used funds. he responded saying the obama administration reviewed and approved the ads. so what if any impact will these allegations have on governor christie in his potential 2016 run? joining us now, attorney david limbaugh, and kirsten powers. welcome to both of you. >> good to be here. >> does this mean anything, kirsten? >> the investigation about the funds? >> yes. >> well, obviously if he abused funds, it would be a terrible thing, we don't know anything yet, just the allegations that are going on. >> and my recollection, he got
the approval, to use the funds. they were able to prove it today. here is chris christie loved for being bipartisan. where is obama saying you know that he has confidence and faith in his pal, governor christie. doesn't seem like any democrats who were so fond of saying he was the one moderate republican that they could get along with, they don't seem to be coming to his aid, why is that? >> you know, i would count myself as a person who is in that camp of thinking he is a moderate governor, but that doesn't excuse what has happened on his watch in terms of this bridge closure. and the fact he had very senior people who worked for him doing this. you know, he says he didn't know anything about it. but these are senior people working for him. so i don't know how -- it doesn't reflect badly on him. >> well, it is interesting david, because you have democrats threatening to impeach christie if there is any type of smoking gun evidence that comes up in this case. you got new jersey drivers now
suing him. but where is the president, his best friend just before the election with governor mitt romney and he gets the big bear hug? where are the democrats he reached out to so many years, that he has gotten so much credit for. >> memo to establishment gop, democrats are not your friends. you need to understand that. there is a a lot of give and no take. i agree with kirsten here. i will not defend christie on this matter. one thing that bothers me more than anything is abuses of government power. and while i don't think christie was directly involved he did surround himself with the type of people whose character led to this. so i will not defend him and i will not be inconsistent about that. but that being said, there ought to be an outrage and an outcry from the rest of us about the double standard in the main stream media. it is one thing that christie has done on a much smaller scale than the millions of things
obama has done wrong. the countless abuses of power that he has done, and the media has not so much as asked a question, what did you know and when did you know about the "fast & furious"? what did you know and when did you know about the irs scandal, solyndra, while he was trying to get more funds for it. and there are countless scandals that the media has suppressed to deliberately help obama and to shield him. >> one thing you said about christie, he put his neck on the line, he left no wiggle room and took the heat and answered questions. and as you compared it, the irs scandal, the nsa, the "fast & furious," i have not seen the same forthrightness by the administration. >> you're lumping a bunch of things together that don't have anything to do, one with another. >> i didn't say they had anything to do with each other. i said there is a double
standard. >> here is my point, they don't have anything to do with each other in terms of how they were covered by the media. the fact of the matter is, the nsa investigations have gotten a lot of coverage by the media. >> who has been held accountable, and when has the question gone on record defending and answering questions. >> it is a much more complyiicad situation, because the president doesn't think he did anything wrong. i think he did, if he doesn't think he does anything wrong, then why didn't he fire anybody? hold on, "fast & furious," there is nothing to suggest that barack obama knew about it. even the most fanatical "fast & furious" person -- >> his staff did it, and they were not held accountable. >> but you're talking about obama, sean, you throw these things out like "fast & furious,". >> and christie, talking about the obama staff in the case of
"fast & furious," people are de dead, in the case of benghazi, people are dead. >> there was no s had hr oe -- shred of evidence -- >> you keep conflating -- >> who gives drugs -- >> i know what happened in the case, i don't need you to tell me what happened. there is nothing that shows that eric holder directed them to do that. >> what is worse, the bridge incident, or giving guns to kids -- >> on purpose -- >> they did not mean to lose the guns. that is a tactic that they used, that the bush administration used. the fbi uses and they did not mean to lose the guns. >> david? >> i'll send you a memo, kirsten. obama -- holder was -- >> i know the case back wards and forwards. >> holder was directly involved, lied twice to congress. obama invoked executive
privilege to keep us from finding out. in "fast & furious," obama was directly responsible for sending susan rice out there to lie about the videotape. >> you mean benghazi. >> bald-faced lie to tell us what was going on, so kirsten, they are comparable in these two cases alone. by the administration, doing obama's bidding. now the obama administration is doubling down -- >> there is nothing that shows obama was connected to the irs scandal. >> is obama ever accountable to people? the mainstream media demand that is christie maybe even be fired. but he has fired four people and took action. obama never apologizes, christie apologized. >> david, you can't seriously be comparing, aides that directly report for christie. his like childhood friend who worked for him. >> wait a minute, holder and obama -- >> he doesn't even know --
>> holder -- are you saying holder and obama don't have a direct relationship between each other. >> you're jumping from topic to topic -- >> let me focus this, it is aides of christies, and the appointments of obama on the same series, a different thing with the same result and different action. >> the commonalty is the doesn't standard that the media and the democrats apply. i am a strong conservative. >> i just said i don't see a double standard. >> one at the same time. david? >> well, there has been a deliberate -- ignoring of all evidence and a failure of scrutiny by the media. in fact, brent bozel's outfit, media research center said there are the first 47 hours of this
christie scandal, there is more than the obama scandal. if that is not apples to apples, i don't know what is. >> we got to run, thank you both. and coming up tonight on "hannity". >> was rodriguez injecting himself with these substances? >> alex was scared with needles, so at times he would ask me to inject. >> you have injected him? >> yes, personally. >> the attorney for alex rodriguez was here to respond to the allegations and has explained why a-rod has sued the mlb. and later, what former defense secretary gates is saying about the men and women who are fighting to protect your freedom, coming up. ♪

and welcome back to "hannity," baseball player alex rodriguez, in a suit regarding performance-enhancing. now, this lawsuit after an arbitrator reduced his suspension from 211 games to the entire 2014 season, which could mean only 122 games, coming one day after anthony bosch told cbs news and 60 minutes some very revealing details about the quote, disgraced third baseman.
>> once alex rodriguez was fully under your protocol, what were the various banned substances that he was taking? >> testosterone, and some growth factor. one, human growth hormone. and some different forms of peptides. >> all of them banned? >> all of them banned. >> and he knew that? >> yes, he did. he knew that and i knew that. >> was rodriguez injecting himself with these substance insist. >> alex was scared of needles. so at times he would ask me to inject. >> you have injected him? >> yes, personally. >> personally. all right, here to explain the case is the attorney for a-rod himself, joe tacopina. joe, a lot to get here, short amount of time to get to this.
first of all, what special benefits did bosch get in testify follow the major league baseball, the mlb. >> yeah, he got an unbelievable deal, one financially lucrative for him, and a deal that would keep him out of jail. >> body guard -- >> they spent a million on the body guard, they paid his legal fees, only a million to date, it has only been a few months. they have given him a pr agent, i'm not sure why he needs one, they gave him the right to do a book deal. they have taken him out of a deal that could cost them millions. most importantly, david agreed to do something that i can't for the life of me understand how major league baseball can look themselves in the eye to do this. they have agreed to go to prosecutors to agree, regarding the investigation where bosch is
being investigated and will be charged with dishing out steroids to children in florida. >> here is my heart, now, i suspect that a-rod lied before, and lied to katie couric. my feeling is that baseball has known for years, you go back to sammy sosa, everybody knew these guys were using it, major league baseball turned a blind eye, you agree with it? >> absolutely, the cap sizes were going from 7-7/8, sammy sosa was a frail guy, became the incredible hulk, barry bonds, sammy sosa, went to his house in
the dominican republic. and anybody that went to his house knew what was going on. >> they have a means, they drug test, correct? >> correct. >> and alex rodriguez passed 12 drug tests in the interim, right? >> 12 drug tests, baseball holds their drug program out as the toughest in the country. they say it is the supreme in all of sports. most importantly, it has to be 12 and 0, most importantly in this case, the one date specific that tony bosch was able to say he injected alex rodriguez with steroids and testosterone, was in detroit, he was tested before game four, and guess what? he came up negative. either alex rodriguez is a scientific freak or his body is not susceptible to testing, or science -- >> i had my suspicions about a-rod. but i have a problem with major league league baseball and their
testing cannot keep up with whatever means that are being used to cheat, then they have to change those. but in this case, if they're going to offer this guy that much money in terms of financial benefits s and a deal, didn't y pay people money in a brown bag in a car to get illegal deals? >> first of all, paying an individual $150,000 in cash, an individual whose name they didn't even know. turned out to be a career criminal. they gave him 125 -- for stolen documents, doesn't that beg a question -- if there is such an agenda to get alex rodriguez out, if they want to go out and say i was tough on steroids and control. >> if they want to get him, they have to get him the way they're getting everybody else, the double standard. >> major league baseball suspended george steinbrenner.
look what they did to get him in a no-positive test. >> most lawyers that i talk to say you have a big uphill battle dealing with a federal court on this. but i think with all the benefits that were given to bosch, and i think the fact that information was obtained potentially illegally, you may have a better case than people think. >> you darn right we do. there are times when federal courts will intervene, and when you have situation where you have to facts. you have a fundamental fairness argument where we were not given the same access as the major league baseball lawyers, most importantly you have a situation here where 162 games defies their own collectively bargained for agreements. the cba and the drug agreement, the jda, there is no calling for 162 game fos a first-time offender. >> it is 50 and 100. >> somehow they thought alex
rodriguez should get 212. >> they want to clean up the game, i'm with them. they have to clean it up in a way where they're not handing cash in paper bags or offering buyouts to people to testify. that doesn't seem right to me. all right, we're going to follow it and appreciate you being with. if i get in trouble, i think i'll ask you, you're fierce. >> if you -- no, i'm not in trouble. >> in the unlikely event you're falsely accused. >> coming up, former defense secretary robert gates will be on this program for the first cable interview. he opens up about obama and what the troops thought about the commander-in-chief. and also, rob ford, the toronto mayor, he goes to a night club, and guess what? everybody wants to have their picture taken with the mayor who is a crack smoker and an alcoholic, we have the pictures to prove it. tell us what you think about a-rod and any other issue we're talking about. and don't forget, join us on

he said this on cbs. >> it is one thing to tell the troops that you support them. it is another to work at making them believe that you believe as president that their sacrifice is worth it. that the cause is just. that what they are doing is important for the country. and that they must succeed. president bush did that with the troops when i was secretary. i did not see president obama do that. >> he is saying that his heart is not in the military effort. he is the commander in chief. and he also goes on further to say he didn't believe that they were going to win. how would you feel if you were the mother or father of a service member who was out there fighting that war? >> sean, name one quote where obama has specifically said that he didn't think the troops were going to win this war. no, no, no, hang on a second,
this man what you were going to have the biggest charge like it is a crime. of course, obama and crimes go hand in hand. the biggest charge that gates is going to make tomorrow about the commander-in-chief, making speeches in afghanistan to our troops that he was going to get them out as soon as possible. because he didn't want gates -- to add more troops, that makes him bad? >> the fact -- he doesn't think he can win or showing them the support, what does that say? that, to me, if i were a parent of a soldier or a soldier, i would be livid that i'm putting my life on the line for this. >> all of these revelations have been about how the president viewed this mission and all other military missions through a political lens. and this is not a giant secret, we understand he embraced the political position and abandoned it when they did the surge. the most passion he showed was when they directed the force to
use the policy, don't ask, don't tells. it tells you he is more engineered in the social aspects of it than in fighting the war. >> and scott, there is part two of this, because hillary clinton, in this vote admits that her vote against the surge was entirely political. and he suggests, meaning obama, that his vote was entirely political. i mean, are we going to play politics with the lives of the military because that is what they're saying here. i think the worst charge you can make against a politician is that they put politics above the lives of the soldiers. >> and i agree what you said, president obama has been the worst for the -- >> we had one terrorist attack aside from fort hood -- >> we have weakened our military, destroying from within. you're making the blanket statements you have nothing to back it up. >> we reduce pensions, their
pay, normally they get 1% increases. the worst president for our military right now. >> right now. >> i wish instead of sitting here and trying to get on "the new york times" best seller list, he would have done this when he had the opportunity. he was supposed to speak on behalf of our military, i wish he would have, when the president listened, how many lives would have been saved in afghanistan if secretary gates -- >> even conservatives said it was inappropriate to come out with this memo, this book. >> why did he not do it when he had a chance as the secretary of defense? >> no, that is a good question, when we come back, and the toronto mayor is in the news. >> because i love fat, sweaty, disgusting men. >> and we have records that prove welfare recipients are using money to go to disney, i don't make this up. the senator is here to explain why he believes that president

the center of gravity is on the court. today it's rather clearly against the president. that is for the simple reason in the constitution. it's against the president. people complain about recess add pointments all the time. the presidents both parties made recess add pointments. but they're different than any other recess add pointment in history the senate didn't consider itself in recess. you know, i look for example the health care law. president decides that he's going to have, he decides he's going to delay things they have they authority to do that. do you believe there is a system mattic abuse of power on a level of lawlessness here? if so, what do you do? >> yes. there is a level of lawlessness. there is significant rate here of this president trying to convert our
government into a government of one. and, with designed it was set up to prevent that from happening. saying look this is why we're our own country. why we don't salute the union jack we wanted to prevent accumulation of power in the hands of the few or one person that caused us so much suffering prior to the revolution. for this president to do this was inexcusable and un-constitutional. >> one example you have, because we have co-equal branchs of government. what are examples you see, you think real lawlessness that ought to concern americans exists now. with this white house, this branch. >> okay. so this president wanted congress to pass the dream act. congress wasn't able to get the votes. president tried to implement the dream act without legislation the president saw that his health care law, obamacare was in real trouble. so, he decided
to suspend the enforcement of the mandate. >> hard working americans responsible for complying with the individual mandates. there are other aspects that the president said i'm in the going to implement. i'm not going to enforce. for the first year. he does all of this as though he were a lawmaker authority consisting of one person, he's not. that might work in places if you're a dictator. if you're kim juning un you might be able to get away with. that the president's power is limited by the constitution. he's got to follow. that >> senator good, to see you. we'll watch and monitor closely that more. now, be sure to tune in tomorrow night. 10:00 eastern for my exclusive cable interview with the former secretary of defense, robert gates in studio. we're going to talk about his
