6:00 pm
election. the foundation of any news organization is honesty. why not be honest for once? that would be a great improvement. that's it for tonight. good night from washington. sean hannity is next. >> sean: tucker, great show. it's so insane with so much news, it's hard to get it in in a full hour. we're going to try. welcome to hannity. mueller's witch hunt is hit with another massive blow. rudy guliani is saying that the special counsel won't indict the president. we've been saying that because mueller never had the legal standing to do it in the first place. we'll explain. and president trump responding to kim jong-un's threat to pull out of the summit and he refusing to back away from the denuclearization of the media. the media promised a smoking gun. remember the trump tower meeting between trump jr. and the russian lawyer? the senate released the
6:01 pm
documents. in spite of what the media told you, it's a dud. going nowhere. and a stunning record new from the fbi launched a secret investigation. it has a name into the trump campaign. only days after they rigged and put the fix in in the clinton e-mail investigation. "the new york times" has inadvertently told you everything that we've told you about this regarding the massive abuse of power and corruption. also tonight, mark meadows and jim desantis are fighting back hard against the doj. they're now urging the president to get involved. we need the documents released. they're demanding to see it. a lot to cover. tonight's breaking news opening monologue. we start with another stinging setback for the special counsel, robert mueller. rudy guliani is saying tonight that robert mueller will not seek a presidential indict. it's obvious why mueller won't even try because as we have been
6:02 pm
telling you, he never had a legal leg to stand on. doj guidelines clearly state that a sitting president cannot be indicted. not to mention mueller doesn't have a reason to do so in the first place. mueller has zero evidence of collusion, has only been focused on the vault crimes of the president and it's not a crime to have thoughts. rudy guliani reacting to tomorrow being the one-year anniversary of mueller's corrupt investigation. here's part of the interview that will air with laura. take a look at this. >> what is the timeline for this to wrap up? >> they should do it today. as soon as possible. that i have the facts to write their report. you can write a fair report, fine. if you can write an unfair report, write it around we'll combat it. we're ready. >> the former new york city mayor is right about this. he told laura ingraham about the damage that this investigation is doing to this country.
6:03 pm
here's what he said. >> when you look at the flash points, the trump tower meeting, the stormy daniels payment, the raid on manafort, the rain on cohen, is there one part of that that concerns the other parts? >> yeah, their inability to reach a conclusion that is obvious and inwillingness to recognize the damage this does to our country. this was engineered by comey. >> sean: we'll have more on this with joe and laura's fill interview with rudy that airs after this program. on the foreign policy front, president trump is not blinking in the standoff with kim jong-un and north korea. remember, kim jong-un is now trying to act tough as he ego has been bruised. he's threatening to withdraw from the summit. he said denuclearization is not on the table. president trump said his peace
6:04 pm
through strength policy continues. take a look. >> we'll have to say. we haven't been notified. we haven't seen anything. we haven't heard anything. we will see what happens. whatever it is -- >> sean: obviously the liberal media in a frenzy over this development. think about it, for them to succeed and the president to fail. for the democrats to succeed is the president to fail. the president is standing firm on denuclearization of the korean peninsula. john bolton says this is part of the game that north korea always plays. unlike clinton, we're not trying to bribe the guy. >> the question is if this is really a sign this they're not taking denuclearization seriously. kim jong-un told south korean president at the april 27 summit that he agreed to denuclearization. so if they're walking back from
6:05 pm
it, we'll find out. sarah sanders said this morning pretty much what the president is thinking. if they're ready to meet, we're ready to meet. if they're not ready, then we won't meet. >> sean: we have the three hostages back. he's not firing missiles, so far a win. what is happening here, trust but verify. president trump is not giving up anything. kim jong-un has made every concession, he gave up the hostages. we don't have to appease him with a plane load of cash and currencies and $150 billion like obama did with iran. so the ball is in kim jong-un's court. he wants to talk, he wants a deal, he wants a better life for his people, president trump is ready to listen. north korea won't be allowed to build nuclear weapons. that's a fact. the. has made it crystal clear. we're getting clarity on another major story. remember how the past year the left wing media, the democrats
6:06 pm
promising that trump tower meeting was somehow the big smoking gun of russia collusion? tonight in speed of media reports, we have the evidence that it was a total dud. the senate judiciary committee released thousands of pages of testimony. several key players at the meeting. the make take-away is this. they all thought it was a waste of their time. they were talking about adoption. no dirt on hillary clinton came through. if it did, it wouldn't be illegal. we'll explain that tonight. from all accounts, this meeting went off the rails and focussed in on topics like russian adoption and russian adoption. it's a nothing burger. the media have been hyping this as a cruise missile that was going to take down the trump administration. donald trump jr., he testified. he was skeptical going into the meeting and that his suspicions were quickly justified. donald trump jr. also said that his father, president trump, had nothing at all to do with it in
6:07 pm
any way, shape or form. despite all of this wild and false speculation, it's nothing. the trump tower meeting is not the only breaking news story that is embarrassing to the destroy trump media. "the new york times," they hate president trump. they're now basically tonight confirming everything we have been telling you regarding the biggest abuse scandal in the history of the country. it's not a maya culpa, it's probably inadvertent. this was their original headline today. a secret mission, a code name and anxiety inside the early days of the fbi's trump investigation. they changed the headline. code name crossfire hurricane. the secret origins of the trump administration. great to know somebody in the fbi like the rolling stones. why would they change it?
6:08 pm
let me explain. it's a long article. the times explains how the fbi opened a top secret operation into the trump campaign. by the way, only days after they rigged the investigation into hillary and the same exact players. now, the details were closely guarded by fbi officials. this all happened days just days after the same people put the fix in with the exoneration of hillary clinton, rigging it knowing she committed felonies and obstruction of justice. everything we've been exposing. to break it down this way, in the summer of 2016, they interviewed alexander downer. he's the guy that got drunk one night with some guy. i thought i knew everybody in the trump campaign. george papadopoulos.
6:09 pm
never heard of him. the trump adviser that heard of. while drinking, they gossiped like mean girls and dirt on hillary clinton. downer alerted the australian intelligence agency that told their u.s. counter parts. four-way hearsay. this is massive. the times is confirming that the fbi used four-way hearsay to launch an investigation like we've been telling you on the program. their timeline doesn't match up and hearsay is never admissible never mind four-way hearsay in a court of law. so what "the new york times" is proving is we've been right the entire time and in the process of trying to cover up for their deep state friends and making excuses, they're exposing them. the times and the rest of the media have been trying to get ahead of what is a massive scandal and protect the likes of comey and somebody cake and strzok and lynch and page and everyone else. but they can't because the facts, the evidence, the truth is finally coming out.
6:10 pm
we have been promising you this. so far what we've been uncovering is only the beginning. this is going to get worse for all of these deep state actors before it gets better. take a look at the side of your screen. james comey, andrew mccabe, loretta lynch, peter strzok, lisa page, all at the center of this scandal. comey is a liar and leaker. mccabe lied under oath multiple times. loretta lynch tried to compromise the clinton e-mail investigation and comey to say it's notice an investigation. it's only a matter. then you have the fbi anti-trump lovebirds, strzok and page. they abused the president verbally, attacking him in texts. and strzok's fingerprints are all over everything. more on that in a second. another big story first to tell you about. the doj's attempt to slow walk, stone wall, obstruct congress from ever seeing over 1.2
6:11 pm
million documents about the clinton e-mail server investigation and the russia witch hunt, which should be coming to an end. they're now asking the president to use his executive authority and instruct the attorney general, jeff sessions who should be doing it on his own to immediately turn over all documents that congress has subpoenaed and has a constitutional right co-equal branches of government and a right to oversight and separation of powers. it's unsane. it's unfair to you, the american people, that it has come to this as congress has the constitutional authority as part of their checks and balances. rod rosenstein, he's been concealing information and then needlessly redacting key parts of these things in the name of national security that gets proven later not to have anything to do with national security. rosenstein claims that, but it's not true. we've seen this lie play out. it's about protecting all of his friends.
6:12 pm
meanwhile, he's conflicted from the very beginning of this. by the way, was a no-show for a closed door hearing with the senate intelligence committee today. i wonder why. several obama administration officials, they were quoted but comey dodged the entire thing. that's telling. think about this. congressman jordan and desantis will join us in a minute, a major follow up on the former obama official that at one point voted for the communist for president. how he became a cia director is breathtaking. jonathan brennan. paul sperry reportedly threatened the president and is now being exposed by a liar. last may the former cia director testified under oath that the dossier didn't factor into the intelligence community's assessment of russia election meddling. we have the tape to prove it. take a look. >> you know in the bureau relied
6:13 pm
on the steele dossier as part of any court filings? applications, petitions, pleadings? >> i have no awareness. >> did the cia rely on it? >> no. >> why not? >> because we -- it wasn't part of the corpus of intelligence information that we had. it was not in any way used as a basis for the intelligence community assessment that was done. it was not. >> sean: mike rogers and james clapper are contradicting brennan and saying that yes, the dossier did play a role in to what american intelligence agencies concluded. just like the nunes memo and just like the grassley grand memo. on top of all of that, brennan hand picked peter strzok to help work on this report. the same guy that put the fix in for hillary and the same guy that trashed president trump in text after text and then few
6:14 pm
days after exonerating and rigging the hillary investigation launches an investigation into donald trump. this deep state is one huge giant incestuous, corrupt swamp. the more we learn that peter strzok is involved, his dirty fingerprints are over everything. why does this guy still have a job? here's his reaction. former u.s. attorney for the district of columbia, joe digenova. and new author. >> isn't that the amazing thing, that "the new york times" in 12 printed pages revealed today? >> right. they basically debunked their own reporting last december that said it was the papadopoulos bar talk. today they admitted that the fbi
6:15 pm
already opened the investigation by the time they learned about the papadopoulos case. >> sean: because their timing off. >> right. >> sean: june 20th steele writes the phony dossier claiming trump russia collusion for five years. and helping hillary -- hurting hillary clinton and hurting trump. he hadn't been running but for a year. you'll have to be clairvoyant to know that trump was going to run. two weeks after he writes the dossier, he meets with the fbi. after that, they open the investigation and only after that do they talk to downer about papadopoulos. so the truth is -- >> sean: the guy that got drunk -- >> the dossier, the fictitious dossier that triggered the hoax. >> sean: i can't say this enough. this is the clinton bought and paid for dossier by a foreign
6:16 pm
national. they use russian lies, never verified, never told -- never obtained a fisa warrant, they department tell the court they didn't verify it. when did that tell the fisa court judges four times? that this was paid for by hillary. >> well, sean, obviously it's been known for some time. we've been talking about it for more than a year. that part of the brazen plot, which included exonerating hillary clinton illegally and then if donald trump won to figure out a way to frame him. the fbi and the senior doj officials and john brennan and james clapper and james comey set about on a plot to frame donald trump and the people in his campaign. they used all sorts of means and methods to do that, including the use of an agent provocateur that was unleashed on the campaign on the soil of a foreign country and as a result
6:17 pm
of interviews in the campaign, asking them who approached you? a person that you never knew before and started asking questions about foreign policy and seeing if they could "help the campaign." it's now known who that agent provocateur was that the fbi used and john brennan used and james clapper. tonight there's a flurry of concern in washington in the law enforcement and intelligence community that his name will come out. >> sean: i think we already know. but i'll put that aside for a minute. rudy guliani saying what we already know was policy and truth and fact. the special counsel is not going to indict trump and then saying come out with your stupid report. don trump jr. meeting. what is so amazing, all of the exchanges talk about what a waste of time. this is ridiculous. this is about adoption. we've got a convention that might be brokered.
6:18 pm
what is amazing is, it wouldn't be illegal in the first place if they saw information. that is your point. >> the media and democrats were hysterical for months that the trump tower meeting with the russian lawyer was a crime. i wrote columns, you and i talked about it. i said what crime? what crime? one harvard law professor said it's treason. i'm sorry, the treason lawyer requires us to be at war. nancy pelosi said it's a violation of federal campaign law. no, it's not, nancy. maybe you should have gone to law school or just read the federal campaign election act that says and you can read it on their website, foreign nationals may volunteer on american political campaigns. they're allowed to atenned meetings, give information and talk and no -- it goes on to say volunteering services is not a campaign contribution.
6:19 pm
so it was never a crime. that was a hoax, too. >> >> sean: unbelievable. joe, this is your business. do you believe with gregg's analysis? >> absolutely. >> sean: i'm glad to hear that something like the rolling stones like me. >> part of the juvenile attitude at the fbi. >> sean: when you say bad cops,it stings. >> dirty cops. james comey was the dirty cop in charge of a bunch of other dirty cops. what you have here, this was a criminal plot by senior people. john brennan, james comey, james clapper, senior department of justice officials to subborn the presidency of the united states through the use of false evidence. the falsify is a warrants were obtained through lying to the fisa court. when all is said and done, mr. hubber, conducting the grand
6:20 pm
jury to investigate the unmasking, the lying on the fisa court and the leaking of information to the press, it will be shown without a shadow of a doubt that the reason mr. brennan has been lying in congressional testimony was from the beginning, is because he knew that if he told the truth, he would reveal the plot that involved all of the people. that story in "the new york times" today is a magnificent piece of evidence that there was in fact a plot. after all the denials, they say now that this operation hurricane was in -- >> sean: cross fire hurricane. >> cross fire hurricane is exactly what we have been saying for a year. >> sean: so this is the truth. >> there was an effort to undermine the candidacy of the opposition part. this is the most unbelievable scandal in the history of this country, and "the new york times" just blew the lid off of it in advertently.
6:21 pm
>> sean: last word. >> he's absolutely right. can i say one thing? >> sean: yes. >> so this is about hillary committed felonies, obstructed justice. acid wash. then she had the investigation rigged. exoneration before investigation. they begin in deep state attack open donald trump. >> they needed the hook and the hook was the phony fabricated dossier. >> sean: the fisa court lies. >> i dug deep into the interrogatories and the liable lawsuits. he basically admits that his own dossier is of dubious credibility. >> sean: that was in england in another case. >> right. 50/50 proposition. may not have been true. >> sean: wow. and used -- presented to a court to get a warrant to spy on an opposition party candidate. we have to break. thank you all. thank you, joe. when we come back, jim jordan, sarah courter, jim desantis.

6:26 pm
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity." breaking news. according to a report, the doj inspector general, the one we've been waiting for has completed a draft of a report as it relates to the handling of the clinton e-mail investigation. here to reaction, ohio congressman, jim jordan, ron desantis and also with us, sarah carter, fox news contributor. sarah, let's talk to you first. we know it's supposed to come in may or april, but they found new information as relates to this.
6:27 pm
new evidence and the new trail. where are we with this? >> looks like it's wrapped up. we were expecting it to wrap up in may. they extended that because they found new information and it's going to be imperative for the inspector general horowitz to get all of that information into this report, which i believe he did. now he will be releasing. so this is going to be very important. this is part of what congress has been asking for all along. remember, it's the inspector general that has all of the documentation. the 1.2 million pieces of documentation that congress has been practically begging for and pushing and threatening with subpoenas, the doj and the fbi. so this report is very important. >> sean: on top of the letter that both of you, ron desantis and mark meadows who is not with us have put out saying mr. president, get involved, you have to tell the attorney general and you have the power to do so, 01.2 million documents
6:28 pm
we're talking about here. we know with the little bit we've gotten, we only have a few of the strzok page memos to begin with. >> right. couple of things. first to the inspector general's report, it was michael horowitz that uncovered the page-strzok texts where we learned so much information. it was michael horowitz and his team that determined that andy mccabe had mislead people under oath. so we're all waiting for this report. if it's a draft, there will be some reviews that have to take place. that's good news that we'll get that soon. more importantly, the letter that we sent. we're tired of the run around from the department of justice. it's time to turn over the information. the one way we know that can happen is for the head of the executive branch, the president of the united states to tell the attorney general that the deputy attorney general and the fbi director, give congress a separate and equal -- >> sean: and they have to do it.
6:29 pm
>> yes. that's what we're asking the president to do. >> sean: ron desantis, this is a key point. again, we only got a small sampling of the strzok-page memos and it's so revealing, insurance policies, how much they hate trump, how strzok is involved in everything. literally interviews hillary. she's exonerated. writing it before he interviewed hillary. a few days after they exonerate, rig an investigation into her, they're investigating donald trump. the timing of the george papadopoulos story is blowing up in their face? >> that's why, sean, the combination of the i.g. report hitting hopefully very soon and then if the president pulls the trigger on all of this other information, we could have the gusher of information that provides all of the clarity that we've been asking about all these different questions. yeah, you talked about the beginning. how did this russia probe start.
6:30 pm
very important question. even things going up into the special counsel. i mean, rosenstein writes an appointing order appointing mueller. the thing is defective on its face. he writes a secret addendum, a new appointing order and then they redacted most of it. >> sean: and this is after they raided manafort's home. the timing is backwards that shows corruption. and rosenstein signing off on the ridiculous fisa application renewal. sarah, here's a big question. i know the inspector general did release some of the strzok page text messages. so revealing. i don't know michael horowitz. i know he's appointed by obama. why should we believe he's going to do their job? the evidence about hillary and committing felonies and obstructing is overwhelming. any american would get convicted. the fact that they exonerated
6:31 pm
her, it's overwhelming and incontrovertible. what makes you think we'll get the truth from him? >> i think there's two things here that are very revealing. one, let me start with your question, everyone that i've spoken with, every source said i know who knows michael horowitz says this man is honor, will stick to his guns. he will be straightforward with the american people. >> a lot of people said that about mueller. >> no. we saw that with the mccabe report. he went after this one. he's going to go after comey, loretta lynch in the tarmac meeting. >> sean: strzok and page. >> yes. >> sean: and bruce ohr. >> absolutely, sean. i want you to think about the timing of "the new york times" story. cross fire hurricane. they knew, the doj as well as the fbi, that this report was going to come out. look, came out tonight. right? so they needed to cya and they went straight to "the new york times" and tried to tell their
6:32 pm
side of the story, a limited side. >> sean: "the new york times" will try to justify and make excuses. all they did is confirm everything you've reported and the show has reported. >> they confirmed everything that's been reported, that we reported and they also gave away some information. they talked about at least one mole, one right? >> sean: right. >> that means that -- >> sean: you'll have a big story on the fbi informant that was in the trump campaign, right? am i jumping the gun here? i'm jumping the gun. >> you might not be. >> sean: we should we have faith -- great work, by the way. why should we have faith, congressman? same question, in michael horowitz. >> he's the one that did tell us what andy mccabe was up to and uncovered the page-strzok messages. that's good. comey has been fired. we'll get information about that in this report.
6:33 pm
andrew mccabe fired. we'll have more answers. we want to know why peter strzok is there. a lot of those things that well get answers to. >> sean: last word. >> trust by verify. that's why the president releases these documents, we can see and decide for ourselves. >> sean: the foundation of the horowitz report, correct? >> that's right. >> sean: we're getting close. gray job all of you. when we come back a report from the white house on north korea. will kim jong-un back out of the meeting with president trump? the deep state development, buckle up. this i.g. report will be very interesting. ♪

6:38 pm
white house. here's kristin fisher. what's going on tonight? >> the white house is really down playing this threat from north korea. president trump said today, the north koreans haven't said anything to the white house about cancelling the summit. they only know about it from the statement in the press. the white house said the threats did not come as a surprise. >> this is something that we fully expected. the president is very used to and ready for tough negotiations. if they want to meet, we'll be ready. if they don't, that's okay, too. we'll continue with maximum pressure if that's the case. if they want to meet, the president will be ready. >> north korean officials cited on going joint military drills as part of the reason why they're considering. the other reason, they say they have no interest in a one-sided affair meant to pressure pong yeah to abandon their nuclear
6:39 pm
weapons. president trump says he insists on complete total denuclearization. to quote the president, he said, we'll see what happens. >> sean: thanks, kristin. here's the author of the upcoming back, "truth, trump's america, the truth about our nation's great comeback." here's newt gingrich. no more missiles fired. the media is invited to watch the weapons launch site at literally torn down. he crosses the dmz, kim jong-un. hostages are released. his ego is bruised and he might pull out. what have we lost? i don't see a thing. >> i thought sarah sanders was perfect tone in the clip you just said. you know, if he would like to
6:40 pm
meet, we'd love to meet. if he doesn't want to meet, we won't meet. the president said earlier, we may not get a deal. if we don't get a deal, guess what? all the sanctions are still there, all the pressure is still there. all the isolation is still there. i think that's exactly the right tone. let kim jong-un dance around this huge country called america and all of our allies and he can posture, he can play games. the end is simple. does he want to stay under this level of pressure and watch his regime gradually crushed or does he want to give up his nuclear weapons and find a very, very different future as secretary pompeo described to him. imagine 20 years from now that north korea had as much electric lights at night as south korea. that would be an amazing future. he's got to choose it. we don't have to choose it. kim jong-un has to choose it. >> sean: add iran to that.
6:41 pm
you add jerusalem as the capitol of israel. you add 14 states record low unemployment, record low unemployment for african americans, hispanic americans, women in the workplace. record revenues for the government, even a surplus. amazing times. here's the question i have. you see what they did for hillary. it was obvious crimes committed. obvious obstruction. incontrovertible. the fix was in months before they interviewed her. you can see the fisa courts lied to, given false information. again and again for a year. and i'm looking at this and i'm saying, how is this happening in our country? i am very concerned about the abuse of power. i think it's much bigger than watergate. thoughts? >> you should be. every american should be concerned. when you learn that the top two people at the fbi were clearly
6:42 pm
dishonest and clearly broke the law, when you learn you've had -- all the way up to the president, to president obama. we saw this visibly after the benghazi raid when the administration, the obama administration went out and for a full week deliberately and knowingly lied on national television to the american people. i think what you're seeing happen now, which is very differe different, that you're seeing the system of corruption that obama and clinton were in charge of is gradually beginning to unravel. as it unravels, we're going to learn more and more. for example, what is the identity of the so-called fbi spy who was in the trump campaign? >> sean: i would be very familiar with his initials.
6:43 pm
i'll probably be familiar. we all know. >> i suspect you will. >> sean: mr. speaker -- go ahead. >> no, i was going to say, imagine you and i are talking about the federal bureau of investigation working inside a presidential campaign in a way designed to entrap and potentially destroy the legitimate nominee of a major party. we have nothing like this in american history. all i can say is i'm so grateful that the american people defeated hillary because if she had become president, we would have learned none of this, the corruption would have gotten worse, would have gotten deeper and the sickness would have been continued. we would have been in trouble. >> sean: you're right about the fbi spy. we're right about the crimes she committed. we're right about the fix being in. and to add to all of that, a fisa court to spy on an
6:44 pm
opposition party candidate associate. in an election year using bought and paid for foreign national put together russian lies. never corroborating, never verifying and never telling the judges in the original application in three subsequent renewals, she paid for it. i can't think of watergate break-in? i'm sorry, this is -- that is minor in comparison to what we're talking about here. >> you go back and you look at what started watergate. that was a couple of guys that were stupid. you're looking at this. people that were responsible and swore under oath to enforce the law. think about what it does to all the fbi agents that are honest and decent and hard working. >> sean: i feel bad for them. >> they want to have pride in the bureau. this is a devastating example of
6:45 pm
corruption. >> sean: good to see you. >> they should be mad. they've been betrayed. >> sean: the people that are most angry are fbi guys and intelligence guys. mr. speaker, good to see you. when we come back, the media apparently, they actually want the country to end up failing. they hate trump that much. sean spicer, ari fleischer as we continue. do ndo not misjudgenity quiet tranquility.

made a mistake with his optimism about the summit with kim jong-un? >> in this case, it's kim jong-un holding back. president trump, not charlie brown, left swinging in the air. >> many times before. >> as it has happened so many times before. north korea has done a 180. >> donald trump, as gordon said, has had his nose rubbed in it by the chinese, by the north koreans. >> after north korea threatened to withdraw from talks, president trump is trying to manage expectations saying of the summit, may it will happen, maybe it won't. the white house should have seen this coming. >> big surprise. what they don't report is that president trump, he gave up nothing for the release of the three hostages. they're home from north korea. kim jong-un needs the summit more than the u.s. here with us, sean spicer is with us and ari fleischer,
6:51 pm
former press secretary. it's a sad position for democrats to be in. all these 14 record states on low unemployment, all the different demographics on low unemployment records, you know, the president, north korea is a great thing. for them to be happy, he has to fail. >> that's true. but i have a surprising conclusion how bad it is with the press. it's good for republicans. because the press is so separating itself from the american people, particularly in the battleground states, the democrats read their good favorable press clips and read the trump clips and they believe them. the more they believe the good press they're getting, the more they separate themselves from the voters. the press has separated themselves from the american people. so you have a slice left that believes the press. >> sean: you might be the last press secretary that ever had a chance at that job. i watch sean spicer who did -- sean, i don't know how you did that job. they can't pay number enough.
6:52 pm
and sarah huckabee sanders is amazing. she has the patience of jobe. i could not do the job that you two have done. >> the wounds are finally starting to heal. i would agree -- can i just say something on north korea though? the funny part is, all the clips forget what the president said at the beginning. if we get a deal, great. i might walk out. he laid the predicate for this a long time ago. everybody is forgetting how he approached this to begin with. the president has made very clear he's willing to meet with him but willing to walk away. that's what all the people have nor gotten. you're right. he's gotten kim jong-un to give three american hostages back, gotten to start talking about denuclearizing the clean peninsula. so many millions of americans are benefitting and they're doing whatever they can to figure out what negative news to cover. what is so fascinating, most americans are saying this president is getting things done and keeping his promises and
6:53 pm
america is better for it. so i know for a lot of folks in the press corps, they're trying to figure what else can i go at him on? at the end of the day, they show how wildly out of touch they are with the american people. the president is getting results domestically and foreign policy-wise he's keeping the country safe, developing jobs, creating a robust economy -- >> go back to north korea for a second. if trump decides he's not going to go, the press will blame president trump. if kim jong-un decides he's not going to go, the press will blame trump. they won't blame the dictator. >> sean: what about no rockets fired over japan, the dmz? >> they covered the hostages but it was a one-day story. jill abramson calls them the
6:54 pm
fake news, she says they hear the cash register. people are subscribing online is so oppositional to president trump -- it's the voice of the opposition. newspapers have to be factual. that's what's gotten lost. >> sean: how do you explain how horrible cnn -- i want residuals from cnn and msnbc. they run me all the time. they need to pay me. zucker needs to pay me. they're not doing well with this. if i was watching a president give a speech and they chanted fox news sucks, i might take it seriously after a while. >> the funny thing on my ends, during the campaign season, i was public. i gave credit to cnn in terms of how they covered the campaign, how they ran their debate. suddenly january 11 when jim acosta decided to become a
6:55 pm
carnival barker, they decided to change their model and realized it was to follow msnbc and be the other resistance. it's sad. they made it personal and their raidings are suffering because of it. every one of these hosts goes on air and tries to outdue each other. >> and the problem is the press should be the resistance. and they always do it to republicans and particularly trump. it's going to get worse when trump is gone. >> sean: thank you. when we come back, "the daily calle caller."

we will run that tomorrow. i will find a way to shut up a little bit. we will always be fair and balanced. we are not the destroy trump media. let not your heart be troubled. big interview tonight. thanks for sharing a preview of the interview with mayor rudy giuliani. >> laura: i thought you were going to say a convicted felon or a liberal? the convicted felon looks pretty good. >> sean: i have a really good story asking me if your kids were this and this and this, i said i don't care as long as they are not a liberal. >> laura: good evening. this is "the ingraham angle." buckle up. we have a huge show. in just a moment my exclusive interview with rudy giuliani. the president's senior l
