croutons but it's contributed a lot. the onion never bothered to contact us for comment. if they would have, we would have corrected them. they're like cnn. sad. that's it. sean hannity from new york. >> sean: breaking this second, a few hundred uncovered texts and we're going through them between fbi lovebirds peter strzok and lisa page. we'll explain those messages. and james comey was just grilled by our own bret baier. get this, a disgraced former fbi director revealed a shocking new contradiction surrounding the department's fisa abuses. earlier today, the president rightly blasting james comey, robert mueller and the doj and of course we will play you his remarks and reveal how abusively becaused and corrupt our
two-tiered justice system has become. we have more pro trump tweets from kanye west. and bill cosby guilty, facing up to 30 years in prison. we'll have full reports tonight. breaking moments ago, we're monitoring the history in the making. the north korean dictator, kim jong-un, became the first leader of north korea to cross the border and step into south korea. we'll show you this historic tape. first, it's time for tonight's very important breaking news opening monologue. as we speak, the house of representatives is pouring through 49 brand new additional pages of newly uncovered text messages between peter strzok and lisa page. you might remember, these messages were a part of the six months of missing texts that somehow, well, were lost because of an alleged technical issue with the samsung phones.
fox news can confirm that many of these unearthed texts have incomplete information. sarah carter joins us with the new information. we know in previous texts, peter strzok and lisa page constantly trashing president trump calling him and idiot, a menace a lone some human being and said f trump. prior to election day, peter strzok mentioned an insurance policy that was proposed to andrew mccabe if trump should assume office. now, "i want to believe the path that you threw out for consideration in andy's office, that there's no way he gets elected, but i'm afraid we can't take that risk. it's like an insurance policy in the unlikely event before you die before your 40." what did that mean? and the letter from harry reid urging trump to open a collusion
investigation. after that letter became public, peter strzok texted lisa page a new york to a "new york times" article writing "here we go." now we're literally actively -- they were actively rooting for the president's demise or what is the insurance policy? what is the insurance plan? was it to drag the president through the mud? either way, it's not a good look for two people that were tapped by robert mueller for key roles in the special counsel investigation witch hunt. even worse, this does critical damage to the reputation of our system of justice. every one of us, every american needs to be concerned. all right. breaking tonight, james comey was grilled by bret baier here on the fox news channel. he's now claiming that the clinton bought and paid for unverified dossier that made up the bulk of the fisa application he said did not make up the bulk of the fisa application even though we have two congressional
memos that contradict what james comey said just a few minutes ago. a few hours ago. take a look. >> you called the dossier unverified, salacious. why did you use that to the fisa court to ask for surveillance for carter page? you used it and led with it, a bulk of that fisa application deals with that dossier? >> that's not my recollection. my recollection is it was a part of a broader mosaic of facts led before the judge to get the fisa warrant. >> there was more than the dossier? >> my recollection is there was an additional amount of material and why there was probable cage that page was a foreign agent. the dossier was part of it or not part of it or a critical part of it. >> i'm having a hard time believing that. this is almost unbelievable. james comey still claiming not to know who paid for hillary's
dirty dossier with russian lies and propaganda that was put together by a foreign national. including russian government lies. look at this. >> when did you learn that the dnc and hillary clinton campaign had funded christopher steele's work? >> i still don't know that for a fact. >> what do you mean? >> i have only seen it in the media. i didn't know which democrats funded -- i knew it was funded first by republicans -- >> that's not true. >> sorry? >> that's not true. the dossier that christopher steele worked on was funded by republicans? >> my understanding his work started as oppo rush funded by republicans -- >> so free beacon said they had glen simpson and fusion gps on a retaineder but they didn't find it. it was initiated by the democrats. >> my understanding is steele was hired -- was first funded by republicans -- the important
thing is, picked up by democrats opposed to by donald trump. >> sean: this is mind blowing. they never verified it. he didn't know who funded it? really? and christopher steele was not brought in until hillary took over. the fusion gps deep dive into donald trump. earlier today, the president called in to "fox and friends" and sounded off rightly so on james comey. listen to the president. >> comey is a leaker and he's a liar. and not only on this stuff, but he's been leaking for years. he's probably been using his friend, the so-called professor that turns out to have fbi clearance, which he never said, he even lied about that because he never said that in congress. he said he gave it to a friend. he gave it to a friend to leak, classified information. it's all classified. totally classified. so he illegally -- he did an illegal act and he said it himself in order to get a special counsel against me. so the special counsel -- by the
way, and intelligence committee and everybody else has found no collusion. nobody unclassified them. those memos were about me and they're phony memos. he didn't write them. he put phony stuff. >> sean: the president is correct and the president also slamming the department of justice and mueller's partisan witch hunt. let's take a look. >> i answer this all the time. because of the fact that they have this witch hunt going on with people in the justice department that shouldn't be there, they have a witch hunt against the president of the united states going on. i've taken the position and i don't have to take this position and maybe i'll change, that i will not be involved with the justice department. i will wait till this is over. it's a total -- it's all lies and it's a horrible thing that is going on. i'm very disappointed in my justice department. but because of the fact that it's going on and i think you'll understand this, i have decided
i won't be involved. i may change my mind at some point. what is going on is a disgrace. it's an absolute disgrace. and by the way, the only collusion is the collusion with the democrats and the russians. you take a look at what is going on there. they wouldn't even give their server the dnc, the democratic national committee wouldn't give their server to the fbi. what kind of an fbi? they break down doors for paul manafort early in the morning. his wife is in bed. like at 5:00 or 6:00 a.m. they undo the lock for michael cohen early in the morning. yet they walk into the dnc and they won't give them the server. they say we're not giving it to you. okay. we'll leave. that's not the fbi. that's a fix. >> sean: why didn't they demand those dnc servers? a phenomenal point. double standard. president trump is right. earlier today, the national review's david hanson with an
incredible column. breaking down the double standard in clear terms. mueller was too happy to target michael flynn, 35 years of service to his country for lying to the fbi. the fbi agent's interviewing him didn't think so. andrew mccabe, he remains uncharged even after the inspector general reported multiple lies to federal investigators under oath. james comey, also remains free and clear when he lied to congress about not writing hillary clinton's exoneration letter before investigating and interviewing clinton? and peter strzok interviewed clinton? what about james clapper? we know he lied under oath about data collection on americans. john brennan who lied under oath about the dirty dossier. and then no charges as the president was just saying for sheryl mills who misled investigators about hillary clinton's private server or huma abedin that trieded to conceal
hillary's elicit server. and the obstruction of charges who who robert mueller is all to happy to investigation as long as it's donald trump. but not james comey who clearly led a fisa judge about the foreign dossier put together by christopher steele nobody to obtain a warrant against a trump campaign associate before the election? seriously? is this the united states or are we venezuela? the clinton campaign, they paid this former spy a foreign national, to write the dossier, using russia propaganda and lies. nobody verified it or corroborated it and still presented it to a fisa judge and they omitted who paid for it. not clinton associate, sheryl mills. she claimed attorney client privilege to get out of testifying. now the newest addition to president trump's legal team, former new york city mayor rudy
guliani is weighing in on the mueller witch hunt telling a local news station "i can guarantee you this. when mueller is finished, no matter whatever he does, he's not going to have a stitch of evidence that president trump colluded with the russians." that's a disgrace. the case should be over. the mayor is right. now the attorney general finally, jeff sessions, is calling for the mueller problem to come to an end for the sake of the country. watch this. >> i think the american people are concerned. the president is concerned. he's dealing with france and north korea and syria and taxes and regulations and border and crime every day. i wish this -- this thing needs to conclude. >> it needs to conclude. yes, sir, mr. attorney general. he also claimed that he would not be appointing a second
special counsel to investigate deep state crimes because the special counsel investigations take on a life of their own. you don't say. take a look. >> we determined to be disciplined, stay within our classical procedures and rules. i do not think we need to willy-nilly appoint special counsels. as we can see, it can really take on a life of its own. >> sean: let me be clear. these are obvious examples of bias at the highest levels of our system of justice in this country. every american, you should be troubled. i say let not your heart be troubled, this is an obvious two-tiered system of justice. we all deserve and must demand better. by the way, we'll have more analysis on this deep state corruption later in the show. first, despite pressure from
some of his liberal hollywood friends, kanye west is not backing down his quote, love for president trump. he was leaving wearing his make america great again hat. he said if you feel something, don't let peer pressure manipulate you. i love people that stand up for what they believe in. kanye west has been taking a stand for individual thought after supporting black conservative candice owens who came under fire from the left for comments about victim mentality culture. we'll have more on kanye's developing friendship in the program. we'll have action to all of these developments tonight. we'll have more from a gubernatorial candidate who i said i want to win to be the next governor. ron desantos. i know this is just released. we're pouring through the 49 pages. we know the hatred strzok and
page have for president trump. what do you have so far? >> sean, i think this is incomplete production. we know their texting habits, how often they were texting in other periods, this is the period december 2016 during the trump transition all the way up to the firing of james comey and then the appointment of robert mueller as a special counsel. if there's only 40 some pages there, there's gaps. some of the stuff is incomplete. so i don't think this is a full production. i think there's more questions that this raises and we're going to have to go back to the justice department and ask them why they weren't able to recover the full strzok-page texts. >> sean: congressman, i had multiple sources telling me tonight that they suspect that there were other devices used as well. did you get that? is that your interpretation looking at this? >> yes. we've also have reason to believe that they were using something called the clean g-mail.
everybody has access to the accounts and you do messages in the draft and respond to drafts so you're not sending e-mails. so yeah, there's a lot of things that they do. using i message. so we have to get all of that that we can get for sure. this is not it. sean, you've documented, these are lovebirds. they had all this hatred for the president. they were very quick to put their opinions about everything that was going on. yet here, you know, you'll just see gap after gap. i'm not satisfied. >> sean: okay. i want to go to dithe issue hows it possible that peter strzok is in the middle of this? he interviewed flynn? he also interviewed hillary clinton. that was in july of 2016. it was early may of 2016 where it was strzok and comey himself writing an exoneration that actually used the standard, the legal standard that means hillary wouldn't have broken the
law. they changed the wording to take that part out and the original drafting also had in that multiple foreign intelligence agencies had hacked into hillary clinton's e-mail server and that means top secret classified special access programming information was in fact obtained by america's enemies and none of it would have been redacted, sir. >> so if you were somebody on hill's campaign team at the time and could have suggested changes to be made, you would have suggested the changes that peter strzok insisted on to try to reduce hillary's level of recklessness and her culpability. what does he do after comey exonerates hillary? a couple weeks later, he opens up a collusion case against the trump campaign based off of what we now know is a two-page document with no actual
intelligence. then eventually they supplemented it with a fake dossier paid for by the democrats. but strzok was the prime driver not only behind exonerating hillary but pursuing this collusion fairy tale and that ultimately led to the appointment of mueller. >> sean: unbelievable. congressman, we're not going to let up. there's apparently 50,000 of them. apparently 1.2 million pages that the inspector general has that congress needs to get. and i'm just urging congress, if they don't hand them over soon, you must hold these people in contempt and worse. >> without question. >> sean: thank you, congressman. joining us with more, gregg jarrett and sarah carter and attorney, david limbaugh. david has negotiated every one of my radio and tv contracts throughout my entire career. we've had dinner together on multiple occasions.
i've paid most of those occasions. he's also a friend of mine. sarah, start with the new memos. more importantly, people see gaps all over this. >> that's what i've been hearing, sean, as well. as we can see here, there's only 47, 49 pages. i haven't had the time to go through all of them. a lot of the important parts appear to be redacted. there appears to be big gaps in between the text messages. they did talk about clean g mail. that is important. that means that they would have dropped them into a draft box in a g mail account that only both strzok and page had access to and would have never been transmitted. that would be interesting to see if the i.g. can get ahold of that. i don't think that will be possible unless they gave up their g mail account. if there's more texts, the i.g.
should be able to answer that. maybe they weren't able to retrieve them -- >> sean: did you think there was 50,000 at some point? >> yes. there's supposed to be 50,000 altogether. according to what we've seen in the past, this is nothing. this is nothing compared. this is almost a reduced version. somebody said it's a nothing burger if you don't have all of the gaps filled in. >> sean: such an important point. what the justice department is doing here is playing games and violating subpoenas of congress. a couple of things to ask you. let's go to comey's interview with bret baier. the contradiction on fisa. seriously, he didn't know that hillary paid for this? do you buy that? >> the first thing you do as fbi director on a big investigation is to find out the source of it. who paid for it. to hear him tonight, he says i still don't know and he thought republicans are the ones that
first initiated the dossier. >> sean: they did but christopher steele was brought in with the democrats. >> that's right. dossier had nothing to do with the research. it wasn't until much later. >> sean: how did he not know that? >> because he's probably the most clueless fbi director ever or he's a liar. i'll give you a couple examples. first, he insisted these were his personal documents, presidential memos. the law says they are not. he said they weren't classified information. that's untrue. the fbi says there is. they had to seize it to contain it. >> sean: now a third person -- >> yes. david kelly. isn't it interesting. he leaked these classified documents to three people who he has now hired as his counsel so he can conveniently hide behind the attorney client privilege. >> sean: maybe we learned a
thing or two about attorney client privilege. what are the crimes we talk about? >> for james comey, you're looking at everything from misleading congress to obstruction of justice to abuse of power on the fisa warrant. the list really goes on and on. >> sean: david limbaugh, let's get your reaction to both the breaking news that -- and also the president's comments this morning. i thought he gave a good interview, no holds barred on "fox and friends." trey gowdy said if you're innocent, act like you're innocent. that's how i would be. hey, that's not true. most people would react this way. >> this is what middle america likes about trump. when he's falsely accused of something, he fights back. he does it publicly, he does it from the heart. this is a sincere thing. there's a double standard and people are tired of this and tired of the overwhelming evidence against the democrats and hillary clinton and the underwhelming evidence against trump and the disproportionate
enforcement against both. comey, i have to say, showed such a casual indifference to the funding, the dnc funding of the dossier and of whether it constituted a major part of that fisa application. it constituted maybe the whole thing. he acted like he still doesn't know that. has he been pushing his book only? how can he be that indifferent to the biggest thing going on during his tenure there at the end? i agree with greg. either he's terribly naive or criminally negligent and i use that loosely. not to know what is going on. they presented that evidence to the fisa court. and they represented to the fisa court that they had independent evidence to warrant an investigation of this court that ought to be treated with hallow respect. it was abused over comey's watch -- >> sean: who told him about the dossier when? he didn't know who paid for it? this is not adding up. i did get to disclose gregg
jarrett's office is two doors down from mine. >> thanks for being with us. >> sean: we have so much more coming. bill cosby, and more. don't touch the dial. roundup for lawns has arrived to put unwelcome lawn weeds to rest. so draw the line. roundup for lawns is formulated to kill lawn weeds to the root without harming a single blade of grass. roundup, trusted for over forty years.
why people everywhere are upgrading their water filter to zerowater. start with water that has a lot of dissolved solids. pour it through brita's two-stage filter. dissolved solids remain? what if we filter it over and over? (sighing) oh dear. thank goodness zerowater's five-stage filter gets to all zeroes the first time. so, maybe it's time to upgrade. get more out of your water. get zerowater.
. >> sean: a jury in pennsylvania found bill cosby guilty of drugging and molesting a woman. the conviction capped off what is an unbelievable fall from grace. the 80-year-old comedian television star now facing up to 30 years in jail. he joins us from the west coast newsroom to take down today's verdict. trace gallagher. trace, 62 women over time. the statute of limitations have passed for them.
>> right. when the verdict read, cosby accusers hugged and crowd. cosby showed very little of emotion until the district attorney demanded that cosby go straight to jail saying the former tv star has an airplane and could easily flee. that's when cosby called steele and a-hole shouting "i'm sick of you." in the end because of his age and health, the judge placed him under house arrest. during the trial, andrea constand said that cosby knocked her out with blue pills and sexually violated her. five other women told similar stories. the star defense witness said andrea constand once talked about framing a high profile person. after 14 hours of deliberations over two days, the jury of seven men and five women voted guilty or all three counts. the d.a. said cosby had used his celebrity, wealth and network of supporters to conceal his crimes. the defense said the fight is
not yet over. you'll recall during a deposition given a decade ago, bill cosby said he gave quaaludes to women that he wanted to have sex with. the same as, say, a person wanted a drink. ever pennsylvania law, sentencing has to happen within 90 days. he could be facing up to 30 years in prison. >> sean: it's unbelievable. back to breaking news. we're learning more information on the newly released texts between peter strzok and lisa page. dan bongino is here and geraldo rivera is also here. first reaction to cosby. >> the me too movement is for real. didn't start for nothing. cosby was the poster child for it. >> sean: we're comparing a quaalude to a drink. >> you said it yourself. 62 women have come forward to accuse the man that was
america's dad of this horrible conduct. i think it's a fragile verdict. you didn't give the disclosure that i sometimes give you advice. >> sean: no third party. >> you bought me a drink. i think because the judge allowed these five other witnesses to come forward essentially who were not the accusers in this criminal case, prior bad acts, is acceptable, but in a limited fashion. this was really extravagant to allow five women to testify against him. he has a reasonable chance on appeal. if he goes to prison, and he can likely go to prison after the 90 days, he could easily die in jail. >> sean: this is a level of predatory evil when you think of drugging another human being like this and assaulting them like this.
it's -- the women all have the same stories. he admitted about the drug issue. it's incomprehensible with the public image we know. >> yeah, this is sick, sean. these are people's daughters, people's mothers. these are good friends. these are people's soccer coaches. 62 women, you have to drug them? it's such a disturbing story, so not commensurate with the image he played on tv. that's why it's so sharking. >> sean: dark and evil. this is evil. >> oh, unquestionable. >> sean: what these women are describing. >> he earned every second of the 30-year sentence. >> sean: let's go back to the top story. we have new strzok-page e-mails. we have haters, despise the president. you watch james comey tonight. james comey didn't know any of these issues that we've been talking about? he said he couldn't remember who told him about the dossier.
he couldn't -- and when he was told. he said he didn't know that christopher steele was only brought in when clinton was paying for it and the fisa court judge, they never corroborated it. they omitted who paid for it. how can you get a warrant under those circumstances? >> we know that james comey is a leaker. the president calls him a leaker and a liar. we don't know if he's a liar. andrew mccabe is accused of lying. >> sean: was it a lie by omission when he was under oath and he said he only revealed it to one person and now it's three? >> to me the most startling thing is that here is james comey pretending, i think, that he did not know that the dossier was to basis for the fisa warrant. >> sean: pretend you were lying, geraldo. >> we'll see. he's a much diminished figure, this vaunted jack friday -- >> sean: he's in legal jeopardy. >> he's a promoter. >> sean: now a criminal
investigation. >> we'll see where that goes. the bottom line though and the most important thing is there is no collusion. there's no russian collusion. >> sean: amazing. >> why are we here? why are we talking about it? because the allegation was a stunning allegation of a foreign power colluding with a candidate to sabotage a national election. >> sean: dan, last word. >> listen, he's got to be lying, sean. does he now understand how probable cause works? if you need ten points of information to establish probable cause and the fisa was a half a point, you don't have probable cause if it's missing. does he -- >> sean: he said who funded it was a small part of the fisa warrant application. that's not what nunes said and graham. he said it was the bulk of the application. >> it was believed. >> sean: geraldo is correct. >> if they didn't need it, they shouldn't have included it. he's making that up. >> sean: andrew mccabe.
remember the report? without any dossier, there wouldn't have be been an application. there's a collision course. welcome back. >> thank you. can i just say that general sessions, i finally agree with him when he said no second special counsel. >> sean: not yet. >> let the inspector general -- >> sean: this law has to go away. >> it's a terrible law. >> sean: when we come back, kanye west sticking up for president trump. the left is viciously attacking him. we'll talk with candice owens here in the studio with darrell parks. that's straight ahead. once-daily toujeo helps you

>> kanye looks and he sees black unemployment at the lowest it's been in the history of our country, okay? he sees hispanic unemployment at the lowest it's been in the history of our country. he sees, by the way, female unemployment, women unemployment the lowest it's been in now almost 19 years. he sees that stuff and he's smart and he says, trump is doing a much better job than the democrats did. >> sean: last night leftist liberal late night hosts go after kanye west. why? because he supports donald trump. take a look. >> we have the rights to independent thoughts. yes. we have the right to independent thoughts. and i independently think that kanye has lost his month. brother to brother, i just want to say, put the phone down! >> kanye west tweeted pictures this afternoon of a make america great again hat that he got from
president trump. in response, trump tweeted pictures with clothes that kanye got him. >> i don't know what happened here. i think kanye west just realized he's too rich to not be republican. i don't know what it is. so now donald trump has two black friends. he has -- i hope ben carson doesn't get jealous. >> sean: joining us right now, darrell parks and candice owens is in the studio. so great to have you. you actually are part of this story. kanye first offended you. >> that is right. apparently it was my brain that launched this idealogical civil war in the black community. i'm so excited about it. this is a tremendous time to be alive as a black american. we've been existing under these lies the democrats have orchestrated because they consider us a low information voter market. so they think we're not going to research the stats and never
find out. >> sean: the race card is played every year. drives me nuts. 14 states, darrell, now have record low unemployment, regard low. black americans record low. hispanic americans, record low. women in america, record low. unemployment records, that is since donald trump was elected president of the united states. is that good for america? obama had eight years, 13 million more americans or food stamps. eight more million americans in poverty. that's his legacy. who is doing a better job? who? >> first of all, i don't know how trump can take responsibility for that progress. that still doesn't deal with the real issue. the real issue is black americans are still having great difficulty -- >> sean: i won't stop until every man and woman has a life and trajectory and job.
did obama fail with 13 million on food stamps? >> he didn't fail at all. he made black america a focus. what i want to see is president trump show us that black america is a priority for him and have specifics how he plans to do it. >> sean: comments. >> it's okay. i like when they do this. just admit that blacks are doing better under the trump presidency. it's fine. it's this refusal to admit it and blacks will do the research and see what's going on. >> sean: i have been frustrated. al gore. the republicans don't want to count you in the census or the change in tone and cadence before predominantly black american audiences. i always felt it was insulting. but the policies, you know -- look at what kanye said. 4,000 american souls slaughtered
in chicago. we once scrolled the names. we heard about trayvon martin, we heard about ferguson. i scrolled the names. we never heard of these 4,000 people shot and killed. >> sean: because chicago is run by democrats. they never want to hold their mayor up. 4,000. that's the exact same -- about the same number of american that were slaughtered in the iraq war. it's a war zone. trump offered to send the national guard and the democrats opposed him. so what it comes down to, trump is trying to be effective there and we have so many great results in black america -- >> sean: what do you say to darrell? >> sean, let me say this though. i want to hear from my president to tell us that something about black america is a priority for him tomorrow. i would love to hear him focus on mental health, education, healthcare. those are issues that he can help us -- >> sean: obamacare work out great for everybody. >> i'd did it.
>> and trumps numbers are better and he needs more time in office to continue to do an amazing job. sounds like you're almost aboard the trump train. wore agreeing on something here. >> let me say something. i want to see trump be successful. this is our country. i don't think he's focusing on the issues that affect black america. i hope he would. >> so you must agree that obama was not focusing on the issues that affected black america if you don't think trump is in. the numbers are in and blacks are doing better under his administration. >> i love president obama. we shouldn't spend more time putting him down. >> it's time to show that things are different. for so long they have told us because there was a black progressment progress. progress is not a skin tone. progress is a number. for so long we've been convinced, look, he's taking a photo open with beyonce and jay z. that means nothing. chicago got worse while obama was in office and he came from there. you can't dispute the facts here. >> sean: is this cultural shift? >> we're on the brink of it and
i can tell you it's going to be amazing to watch. i'm so happy that it starts with a single tweet. i did predict it. kanye west is the first. >> sean: when i interviewed you earlier in the week. it's going to be fun to watch you trajectory. you're a superstar. and honor to know you and have you. i still like darrell even though we disagree on everything. good to see you. when we come back, incredible news and pictures out of north korea for the first time ever. a north korean dictator has gone to south korea. we have it for you.
photos of him meeting with north korean dictator -- look at it there -- kim jong-un over easter weekend. this is the meeting that president trump today said was not originally planned. secretary pompeo, i've known him. he's brilliant man. first in his class at westpoint. look at this. he will go down in history as one of the great secretary of states, this is one of the firsts. on "fox and friends," the president spoke about the negotiations with north korea. he didn't call him little rocket man. take a look. >> i'm not like obamacare where you have kerry and the worst negotiator i've seen. he goes in for the iran deal. he should have just left. he could have made a better deal. look, very nasty with little rocketman and with the buttons and my button is -- everybody said this guy is going to get us into nuclear war.
the nuclear war would have happened if you had weak people. we had weak people. this should have been settled long before i came into office. this is a much different ball game than if they did it five or 10 or 20 years ago. >> sean: remember bill clinton? this is a good deal for the men people. appeasement, bribing dictators doesn't work. historic moment tonight. the north korean dictator, kim jong-un crossing the dmz. the first north korean leader to ever set foot in south korea since the end of the korean war in 1953. amazing day. that's history. joining us now, senior intelligence officer, daniel hoffman. look, we're not there yet but those images should give everybody hope. the president was right. he said oh, world war iii.
no. churchill proved it, reagan proved it. peace through strength works not bribing dictators like clinton and obama with $150 billion. >> right. we're taking productive steps. i'd highlight a couple things about these negotiations. first of all, we're building muscle memory in north korea hermit kingdom for diplomatic negotiation, which is really important. mike pompeo's trip out to north korea and the current negotiations between the two leaders, north korea and south korea, are steps in the right direction. i can tell you from the optic of a retired intelligence officer, one of the things that president trump will rely on is an intelligence briefing. a leadership profile. the best guy to do it, kim jong-un. he will help prepare the president as well as could be prepared if it takes place. >> sean: i've known mike pompeo
a long time. he's a monday of principle and character. he's so right for that job in my opinion. i'm glad he's in that position. yeah. >> i agree with you. i also think he will be the one to advice the president for realistic expectations. as you pointed out, we have over 20 years of misguided, ineffective policy to clean up. that doesn't happen in my view at least in one summit. >> sean: agreed. >> i don't expect to see denuclearized north korea after the summit. it will take some time. we have the right team in place to make something happen. >> sean: we didn't think we would see these images tonight, did we? we think of winston churchill. victory. blood, toil, tears and sweat. and mr. gorbachev, tear down this woman. obama sent $150 billion to iran
that chant death to israel, death to america. we have seemed not to learn that lesson. >> i think we have learned something. we stung the north korean regime with some tough sanctions. we've isolated them. kim jong-un realizes right now that he needs to pursue some negotiations. he's wiped out a mountain where he's conducting the tests. he can't conduct tests more. the seismologists have confirmed it's not an option. he put china and the rest of the region at risk in doing see. we're using that to our advantage. >> sean: look at the relationship with the chinese president. that contributed to the success and capitulating on tariffs and intellectual property rights. thanks for being with us. megan mccain shuts down joy behar. wait till you see this next.
