6:01 pm
or doj obstruction, this report will shed a critical light on how hillary clinton's 2016 criminal investigation was grossly mishandled by a group of high-ranking partisan deep state bureaucrats und the coercive sum of the obama administration. also tonight, huge controversy, deputy ag rod rosenstein is in hot water, fac stiff criticismrom legal scholars, lawmakers alike. over his attempt to bully, threaten, intimidate a house intel committee. will bring you a full report. devin nunes in just a second. naturally, this all surrounds e mainstream media. of course they are blinded by the hatred forsident trump. but literally this coverage, this pathology has gotten so out of control and we are asking the question tonight, are they rooting for america to fail? a less prosperous america? the last peaceful world? what is wrong with these people?
6:02 pm
we are going to show you the worst of the worst. sit buckle up, it's time for tonight's breaking news singapore opening monologue. it's 9:00 a.m. and singapore at 9:00 p.m. in the nation's capital. in less than 20 bars, the doj's watchdog is scheduled to release this all-important ig report 18 months we have been waiting. as we speak, we have a team of experts lined up that will be analyzinghe 500-plus pages in the report line by line, and we will break it all down i promise, as soon as we get it. tonight, pressure from rod rosenstein and other obstructionist bureaucrats in the doj. thismpending report should shed a critical light on what were the crimes of ary clinton and how the fbi, doj, high-ranking members of the obama administration completely and intentionally fixed, botched the criminal investiga of course, the contents of the
6:03 pm
report could be totally ruined by rod rosenstein and his bureaucratic friends at the department of justice. remember, this report could be very embarrassing for all of them. tonight we are asking the questions. will they report include massive redactions? was the report altered by the upper echelon of the doj? wereichael horowitz's findings twisted, parsed, or altered in an we will have a full report toow. the facts aren't in dispute. look at the side of the screen. hillary clinton, we know, fact, irrefutable violated 18 usc 793, espionage act. she mishandled, destroyed classified top secret special access programming information. it's a fact. she deleted 33,000 subpoenaed emails. 18 usc 2071. she acid washed for hard drive with bleach bit. that's a fact. she destroyed literally, had
6:04 pm
aids destroy, or mobile devices with a hammer. that's a fact. a year in prison for six pictures of a submarine. we know that comey and peter strzok, they started writing the exoneration of hillary in early may of 2016 but they didn't interview her and 17 other witnesses until early july and three days later, they exonerated her. we know they pulled out the legal definition of gross negligence and pulled out before agencies likely hacked into the server. that's a fact. we have very important developing story we've got to tell you about. deputy ag, there you seethe screen, rod rosenstein. according to reporting from catherine herridge, the deputy ag of the united states of
6:05 pm
america actually threatened to subpoena the emails and other records of several republican members of congress and their staffs. and after losing his tempe which ac multiple sources i know,e frequently does, he launched into what was described as a personal attack against ngressional staffer. this all came after the house intel committee ramped up its oversight efforts surrounding multiple doj led to investigations in january. in other words, let me make this clear. rod rosenstein was trying to bully, intimidate, threaten house republican, house intel committee chairman and their members from following and doing their constitutional duty of oversight. we have in the system in our country cnd balances, separation of's actuae u.s. constitution. the way, you should and i will call it proper hassle that anybody in the department of justice would ever use their power or threaten to use their
6:06 pm
power is america's defect out of law enforcement official to literally intimidate members of congres. former chief assistant u.s. attorney after mccartney summed it up, "rod rosenstein's subpoena threat, he's conflicted and he's a like it." harvard law professor alan dershowitz rightly speaking out. watch this. >> this is a classic dispute between separation of powers. the legislature has the power obviously to oversee an investigation, investigate the executive branch. a member of the executive branch, what rod rosenstein is, shouldn't be able to bully the legislative branch. he should be transparent. he should turn over the documents. he should be cooperative and congress should be operative of the executive branch. >> sean: professor dershowitz jonathan turley.
6:07 pm
he's also slamming rod rosenstein. take a look. >> i think the threat, for a civil subpoena, was reckless. he shouldn't have done that. he is subject to the oversight of the house and senate committees. these committees have a history of rather poor oversight. for those of us who have argued for years that these committees need to exercise real oversight, demand documents are not back down, this is a refreshing tren the allegations that one party used the fbi to investigate the opposing party, it's one of the most serious matters for oversight in our system. it goes t the very heart of our electoral system and our governmental system. there is every reason for the members to want to see these documents. >> sean: some members of congress, they are also firing back. congressman gowdy and meadows revealed the resolution calling out rod rosenstein for his threats to subpoena. of course it all comes in the
6:08 pm
shadow of the rampant obstruction of justice that we know has been going on with the doj not willing to hand over documents. including ec ohio's from the house intel committee chairman devin nunes over documents surrounding the fbi's use of informants in the trump campaign. nes setine for yesterday. th doj ignored it. rod rosenstein, what are you hiding? why are you intimidating, threatening, harassing congressional members and their staff? it is time for rod rosenstein to step aside or be fired because if this is an attempt at obstruction of justice, why t you let con do job? according to new political poll numbers, mueller's public image, rod rosenstein appointed mueller, at an all-time low. people beginning to understand. eap reporting mueller steam is "worried that russian intelligence services will use a
6:09 pm
criminal case in washington to gather about its investigation and u.s. intelligence gathering methods." we will have more on that. they never should've filed those indictments. tonigh you can stomach this. you are mainstream, corrupt media, the doy trump media a new low despite so much success at home on the economy and abroad, not including this week here in singapore, thedent has been overwhelmingly portrayed negatively in the press. earlier today, the president is ghting back. he tweeted: "so funny to watch the fake news, especially nbc and cnn they are fighting hard to downplay the deal with nor korea. 500 days ago they would have "begged" for this deal. looked like war would break out. our country's biggest enemy is the fake news so easily promulgated by fools!" now the president is right, and here's all the proofou will ever need. you can't make this up. they call themselves newspeople.
6:10 pm
it's pathetic. a bunch of lazy, overpaid so-called colleagues, and they have a radical left-wing agenda. it's obvious. ta a look. >> usually when trump signs an agreement with a foreigner, it's a prenup. >> almost caveman like. it really is. fred flintstone running the country. writing things on stone, not even able to do that. >> president trump said kim jong un is absolutely invited to the white house. yeah. unless of course kim jong un wins the super bowl or the nba championship. >> why the praises? we all talk about a case like that, the langue. it's outrageous the way he talks. this guy is a killer. >> a lot of the reason we were on the brink of nuclear war, to be sure, the new --lear
6:11 pm
tests and the reckless and irresponsible rhetoric from donald trump ratcheting up tensions this is the arsonist getting credit for putting out the fire. >> to believe kim jong un is going to give away his nuclear arsenal which really gives the power, i think we went too far. >> just because something hasn't happened before doesn't mean it historic. that's one thing. i think when you call something historic, it means it has a good chance of having lasting implications. i think i very unclear least to my layman's eye, that this does that. >> any previous president could have easily had a summit with any previous leader with north korea because they've been very eager to be legitimated by the president of the united states. donald trump is the first one to agree o that. >> sean: meanwhile, over at msnbc, the conspiracy theorists choice and cable news, you have
6:12 pm
liberal morning host, joe scarborough, trashing republicans who support the republican commander in chief. shocking. take a look. >> in the republican party have devolved into a trumpist cult. >> it is at of personality. that's a good description. >> sean: the only cult of the people who watch that ridiculous morning show of yours. doesn't matter what president trump does. it doesn't matter how successful his agenda becomes or how much the quality of life for you, the american people, forgotten men and women, becomes. the media in this country is blinded by pathological hatred of this president, so much so that it's now outweighing their sire even for a robust economy and peace in the world. this is sick. the resident is actively,
6:13 pm
clearly -- if the president fails, the world fails. joining us now, we have a lot of news to get to. house intelligence chairman devin nunes. mr. chairman, good to see you. the first thing i want is your reaction to rod rosenstein, a two-part question. did heten to subpoena the emails of view, other members of congress, your staff, and other documents? because he had one of his temper tantrums and got angry? >> sean, it's great to see you live in singapore. i think you should come away ev but i enjoy seeing you there. listen, this has been going on for -- since last august. we subpoenaed them in last august. we continue to try to get documents. we can't get documents. we've had many, what i would say, altercations with the deputy attorney general and his
6:14 pm
staff. what i think is inappropriate -- i am fine. i can take the hea you can attack me all you wan i'm used to it. i enjoy. but when it comes to attacking staff and when the staff feels uncomfortable, that's when you've gone too far. the staff are citizens of the united states who work hard for their country, they are patriots. they don't have the ability to come on television like i do and plead my case. staff definitely have felt threatened. justently, the staff were all kicked out of the room. what people should be concerned about the most right now is obstruction of a valid congressional investigation by the department of justice. let me explain to you just one point, and i will go back to you, sean. one simple points. we've been investigating this for a year and a half. fisa abuse and other matters. we now are at the end. we documents. to get t the bottom of what actually happened in this situation.
6:15 pm
in the last weeks, they have kicked out the staff. the lead investigators on this. now they have kicked out all the house intelligence committee members, so the only ones that are going to provide documents to the whole entire house of representatives, only to republicans. paul ryan, the speaker, and myself. this is totally acceptable. it's a classic case of obstruction of a congressional investigation. at the problem we have here is, who's going to investigate the investigators? >> sean: let me ask you about a staffer, cash per towel. is hehe one or one of the people who got kicked out of the room? i really want to know, when you threaten and intimidate, to use the power of that office, being the deputy attorney general, isn't that itself a form of obstruction commandos that raised the question of impeaching rod rosenstein? >> i will tell you, i would rather not get into the names of the staff. it's more than one. for the particularident,
6:16 pm
there were three staff in the room but there's been many others that he felt threatened different levels by the department of justice. they have not been intimidated. our members have not been intimidated. but what they have done now, how do you get to obstruction, how do you get to misleading congress? taking this information we've been legally asking for, a legal subpoena that we are trying to upstairs ao, no, it's it going toformat that we are only going to give to the gang of eight. that's what's happening. people in america should be alarmed. this is a way to hide information not only from the american people but to their congressmen. and to the staff that work for them. >> sean: how do you possibly get it? is it true that rod rn blew up at you a number of times and that he has a horrible temper? and do you view his threat as a form of obstruction in and of
6:17 pm
itself? that's an important question, whether or not he should remain in that role. >> let me answer the first part. i had to psychoanalysis on rod rosenstein. but i can tell you is the behaviors on acceptable. his unwillingness to provide documents. i said this couple weeks ago on maria's sunday morning show on fox. i said look, all you have to do, if you -- if there isa abuse here, no problems with the fisa application, if there were no problems, informants were spies ver were run into the trump campaign come all you have to do is show the house intelligence committeef the documents. let the investigators comb through the documents. we are not getting mad. what does that tell you? we would exonerate them in a second. where does this lead? tomorrow we have the ig report coming out. i think this is going to be the first step for america and the department of justice and the
6:18 pm
fbi begin the healing process. the healing process would be made much easier if we could complete that by then delivering all of the documents to us.tomoo ver documents to the speaker and myself. we informed every republican member on our committee, signed a letter today to the department of justice to save totally on acceptable. an investigation that we started -- >> sean: how do you stop it? >>two ways. we can hold mr. rosenstein and others at the department of justice in contempt and impeach. the otr way would be for the president of the united states to demand them, to order them to give us all the documents. those are really the onlywo wa>> sean: the president needs to hear this message. the president needs to hea this message. are you willing to go, sir, as far as impeaching? >> well i am am already past. i wanted to move to contempt months ago. the speaker of the house believes he can work wh doj and were going to continue to
6:19 pm
try it tomorrow. but i can tell you my patience has run out. i have none left. now it's really up to the leadership of the house and the president of the unid states in order to make sure that our subpoena gets complied with. >> sean: we cannot have a deputy attorney general of the united states that is preventing congress frodoing their constitutional job and threatening people using the power of that office which is so werful to intimidate, harass, and basically stifle the job your constitutions you to do. mr. chairm,hank you. we appreciate all your doing. hope you get to the bottom of it. joining us now, the author of the soon-to-be released book, in july is coming. "the russian hoax: the illicit scheme to clear hillary clinton and frame donald trump." gregg jarrett. sara carter.
6:20 pm
you heard the conversation with devin nunes. you know kash. catherine herridge named herself. >> absolutely. kashel have been working with the house intelligence committee on this for some time. these threats, these direct threats by rod rosenstein to kash patel and other members of the committee are unacceptable. he is trying to weaponize his office to keep these people quiet, to keep the american people from hearing the truth, sean. >> sean: are your sources confirming what i have heard from people? >> yes, he absolutely does have his temper. i've talked to number of people who have dealt with rod rosenstein. they say his temper is out of control. he's actually obstructing, the word you used. obstructing the american people from understanding theth about what's happening. >> sean: this is a form of obstruction, by intimidating, threatening. >> these are people who work -- remember.
6:21 pm
>> sean: threat by the department of justice, the second in charge. if you keepoing your reporting, we are going to subpoena your emails. >> this is what happening in our country. reporters are afraid of seeking the truth out because they are terrified the department of justice is going to come after them. look what happened to james rosen who was here with fox news. look at what happened to the associated press under the obama administration. and now in the doj, under the trump administration. this is why the president of the united states has to order. so we can wrap up the investigation. >> sean: can order every one of the documents released unredacted immediately. >> absolutely. he can order that at this very moment. >> sean: let's talk about the actions and the threats here iplerces of rodconfirmed now by rosenstein. first of all, i see that on top he obstruction we've ady had. i see that is obstruction. in the purdue, -- and number two, what do you do in a case ls besides impeachment or the prest getting the information out to people? >> it is a crime for a public
6:22 pm
official like rod rosenstein to use his office to threaten anyone, including congress, for exercising their constitutional duties. we are the ones who actually first broke this story on february 2, on your program. i reported it, i received a torrent of denunciations that i was lying and they gave about. turns out it was true. this is not only obstruction of justice but the statute called abuse of power. i think devin nunes is correct. it's not only obstruction of congress and should move as such but rod rosenstein should be impeached over this. >> sean: real quick, we only have a few sec the ig report tomorrow. the facts are not in dispute. will dig do his job? >> i believe the ig will do his job. michael horowitz will do his job tomorrow. >> sean: i have my doubts. gregg, last word. >> i think you will do his job
6:23 pm
and he won't go as far as he should. that's my prediction. >> sean: all right, thank you both for being with us. a lot of breaking news. ed henry here with no details. two big stories rattling washington tight. congressman jim jdan, ron desantis, matt gaetz will jo us. sarah always chooses to take the stairs. but climbing 58,070 steps a year can be hard on her feet, kns, and lower back. that's why she wears dr. scholl's orthotics. they're clinically proven to relieve pain and give you the comfort to move more. dr. scholl's, born to move.

6:25 pm
6:26 pm
6:27 pm
>> sean: there are two big stories consuming washington right now, the lonojinspector ge fbi and justice department mishandling of the clinton probe is coming out tomorrow. this has been 18 months in the works. also major controversy surrounding the deputy attorney general tonight, rod rosenstein, and his alleged threats back in january to actually subpoena house intelligence committee members
6:28 pm
and their staffs over records because they don't want to hand any over. here now with more on these stories, fox news, our chief national correspondent. he is still with us in singapore tonight, ed henry. a lot going on back home where it's nighttime, 9:27. it is 9:27:00 a.m. here and will be eating breakfast after this. steel that's right. can't wait to see you, sean. bottom line, after the waiting for the explosive inspector general report, we are told key lawmakers will get their hands on it tomorrow. from then our viewers, the public at large expected to see it online midafternoon, maybe 2:00, 3:00 p.m. eastern time. members of congress i've spoken to have been briefed on this have got some deil suggestin is going to blister top former fbi officials like james, commander mccabe for theirmiande hillary clinton email investigation, classified information on the email server.
6:29 pm
that of course will potentially raise more questions about whether officials and not just the fbi but the justice department as well or more zealous in probing the president over allegations of russian llusion than they werettom meanwhile, justice department putting back -- pushing back and denying what you just reported on about deputy attorney general rod rosenstein threatening republican devin nunes. you heard him a moment ago, and his aides with a subpoena of their emails and phone records. democrats defending rosenstein, as did the attorney general jeff sessions on tucker's program last night. republicans are insisting is happened and it's a problem. watch. >> it is deeply concerning that instead of having a cooperative relationship with his agency, respectful of the importance of the congress, having access to documents regarding matters that they are investigating that they have oversight rponsibility for, and this is not the way to conduct that. >> more evidence republican matt
6:30 pm
gaetz tweeting tonight "the doj's intimidation and stonewalling tactics have gone too far. i have heard firsthand from congressional staff following threats delivered by deputy ag rosenstein. staff has liter been scared to the point o physically shaking in my office out of concern for their family." our colleague gregg jarrett you just heard froe reported in early february that rosenstein had made this threat to nunes and his staff. at the time, "huffington post" said the reporting from gregg was "dubious." given the reporting of catherine herridge now, email suggesting these threats may have happened. it sounds like gregg was right all along, sean. >> sean: he was right. i talked to one personhat was a victim of this, sarah has multiple people that were witness to this. ed hen, inow you're going toon. be headed home tomorrow. thank you so much for all y hard work. i know you've been working long hours. joining us now from washington,
6:31 pm
republican congressman jim jordan, ron desantis on the man weuod, mattaetz. congressman jordan, let me begin with you. do you know, as i've heard directly from peopl sarah has heard, catherine herdgeas heard others and gregg jarrett that in fact we have rod rosenstein threatening, intimidating to use the power of that office to go after people in congresand their staffs, trying to do their job. >> i believe it happened. i talk to folks who say it happened, who were there. if, in fact, this did take place which i think it did, this is the executive branch threatening staffers of a standing house committee trying to do their job and get answers for the american people. this is as wrong as it the fundamental question it raises is will the speaker of the house stand up and defend house intelligence committee staffers? the best way to do that in my judgment is to bring up the resolution that the three of us introduced, mr. meadows and others introduced come earlier today on the house floor. >> i agree with you.
6:32 pm
where is the speaker on that? honors ron desantis. >> this conduct is disqualified. he cannot be the deputy attorney general. he's teaning people who work in congress simply because we are doing our job to try to get answers for the american people. the arrogance of rosenstein, for months and months, to stonewall and stonewall, nonstop. even basic answedact information, it's got to the boiling point, we in congress need to act. i think his position there -- position there is untenable. >> sean: when i am hearing, congressman gaetz, one of the reasons rod rosenstein is doing a lot of this is because there are specific documents with specific days and specific dates that may implicate him. have you hrd the same thing? >> we have, sean. rod rosenstein is interactively conflicted in this investigatio investigation. as brave patriots like kash patel work hard for the congress
6:33 pm
to expose the corruption and the bias, then they are threatened by rod rosenstein? this is outrageous. kash patel was in my office, concerned for the fact that he come as a staff member, was doing his job and then some hideout different branch of government bringing these threats upon him. look, i am sick and tired of rod rosenstein's games. i think we need to impeach rosenstein. he won't turn over documents. the president of the ited states and frankly if we don't step up and defend our institution, then what good is the congress anyway? h h temper, which have all of you heard about it? can you shake your i've heard about it. ihink cirman nunes is being pretty nice because, you know, i just assume he didn't want to go on the record. but to use that power we are talking about here, here is what i'm hearing congressman jordan. it's either going to be the president demands these documents or congress has the opon of impeaching him.
6:34 pm
that would require the speaker to step up here. but more importantly, when do we get the documents and how does congress do its job if they are being intimidated that they are going to be the subject of harassment and investigation as retaliation for congress doing their constitutional duty? >> sean, you are right. there are certain tools we have in the toolbox. they should all be at our disposal to get the inforon we constitutionally are entitled get to get answers for the american people. it's really that basic. i think therere two fundamental questions. the first one is, the report comes out tomorrowrom the inspector general. it will have people in there that will be cited for wrongdoing. we'll rod rosenstein fire people who are cited in the inspector general's report for wrongdoing in e clinton instigation? e second fundamental question is what i have raised before. will the speaker of the house stand up and defend people on standing committees threatened by the departm justice? the best way to do that is to bring up the resolution. if they don't comply with the document request and the tion, then look for
6:35 pm
exactly what matt gaetz talked about, contempt and impeachment articles in the toolbox we have to go to. finally, there is what devin nunes said, the president can say release the information so they can get answers. >> sean: last question. exit question. congressman dentis and gaetz, we will start with you. congressman desantis. wo be weaker, better for e country that the president, that he demand the documents congress has beenbstructed fromng, shoul demand? >> i think so. jim jordan, mark meadows and i sent him a letter couple weeks ago urging him to do that. he had the power and i think he should do it. the american people deserve the truth on this. donald trump has been treated as poorly as anybody by some of these jokers. he should definitely pull the trigger on that. >> totally agree, sean. totally agree. absolutely. the president has the power to bring this thing home. he can do it, and we're going to stand behind him. >> sean: all right, thank you all for being with us.

>> expert after expert condemning it, ridiculing it. no chance, no way. trump doesn't know what he's do we are on the verge of a potential disaster. i think they were total caught off guard. what was really going on was they were hoping it was going to blow up. they wanted to blow up. they wante kim jong un to humiliate and embarrass trump. so when that didn't happen, i think that they were caut completely flat-footed with the
6:41 pm
success of this meeting. and especially the signing of the declaration which reiterated the pledge to get rid of nukes. >> sean: great points by rush limbaugh, pointing out how completely, absolutely blindsided your corrupt media was by the great success here i singapore as it relates to the north korean summits. watch just how despicable the mainstream media has been in covering what is a historic event that would result in oh, a safer world for your children, your grandchildren perhaps. wow. watch this. >> some of the talk about how close donald trump and kim jong un were during this entire experience, it seems like almost a bromance to me. >> i should say one of the consequences of the summit meeting, we are hoping good things will come from it but one of the consequences as china and
6:42 pm
others are already talking about relaxing. >> president trump has diffused a crisis but i must say that i don't think he should get as much cretor diffusing a crisis he largely made himself. >> president trump somehow stumbled into some kind of historic moment here where he does bring north korea in from the cold. i think it will be unquestionably a big success for him. but at thi point, were talking about a white house where not only they struggled with the details. they have struggled with realit reality. they struggle in dealing with reality. >> sean: here with reaction, he's the hill media reporter, joe concha and nra tv country reader, former secret service. dan bongino. i don't think it could get any worse. i don't pick we can calthem newspeople anymore, joe. look, you've been on the show. we've talked about, i don't hide that i am a conservative. they try to say they are fair.
6:43 pm
there's nothing fair. it's like 24/7 conspiracy, hate-fest, even on important issues like let's see, possible nuclear war, they can't be cheering for the president to do well here? >> read nate silver's twitter feed. he's a very good analyst and he probably did not vote for president trump. he's no fan. i think he had the best take on this. i will steal it from nate. he said "there's a lot of esoteric takes about the trump-kim summit that sidestepped rather point question of whether the talks reduce the likelihood of nuclear war." 90% of the ponded class commentary seems to be constructed with the goal of convincing people that trump shouldn't get any credit. nate silver couldn't be any more right. not a fan of the president. i saw a recurring theme here sean and that's that most of the punditry we heard ove last 48 hours, there was a lot of complaining about the generality of the agreement, about trump not denouncing human right
6:44 pm
abuses in north korea when we never heard anything about that with the iran deal in tehran and the way they treat their people in that country. what i did not hear were solutions offered up by the very expert punditry class that are products of the obama administration, the bush administration, who have no leg to stand on here as far as what we should be doing and what should have been done during the summit with north korea because both of those administrations along with the clinton administration failed miserably. the final point here is that there's a disconnect with the american people. because while 90% of the coverage was probably negative in terms of criticizinghe resident about the summit, reuters has a poll out today. 51% approve of the president's handling of north korea which is remaable considering how polarized this country is pretty can't get 50% aeement o anything. so that shows disconnect between what people are feeling on the ground, what they sought the summit, and what the punditry class to sing out of washington and new york. >> sean: have always argued that in fact the president --

dan bongino, let me get your observations. missiles not being fired, crossing the dmz, talking about denuclearization, breaking down one of the nuclear test sites north korea. you would think good thing. it's worth the conversation at this point. these people discussed me. everyone is being nice an gentlemanly. i'm not interested. i can't stand them. they are a disgrace to journalism, the country, to the planet, any other planets that may exist that have life on it. did you contrast the coverage of this with the coverage of bill clinton in the '90s dealing with north korea where it was very fairnalistic, fa-based and laudatory? these people are disgusting. what's their plan? joe said something everyone should take note of. what's the plan, wise guys,
6:46 pm
smart asses out there. mohs ago we had hawaii setting of missile alarms because the north koreans were on a hair trigger. what's your plan to stop it? you think nuclear war is a joke? these media clients wh never spent a minute and a real job outside of journalism school, what's your p you jokers. i am tired of these people. they have become almost anti-american in their rhetoric towards this president. >> sean: fair question. what's their plan? we know what the answer is. oh, they wants an american president apologizing for the country because they le that. in a nobel peace prize for nothing. they want literally cargo planes of cash and other currency and if you bribe the dictator, oh, that's right. didn't work for clinton or obama. last word, joe. >> i can't believe when you played that montage that nicholas kristof, "new york times," i've been writing for long time, i think is a very ielligent person,
6:47 pm
have the audacity to say that the north korean problem was a problem created by president trump? this has been going on for decades over three prior administrations they didn't do anything to deter north korea advancing their nuclear capabilities. for nichol kristof, "the new york times" was won many words to say something like that is reckless coming responsible and quite frankly shocking. given that he's a very intelligent guy. >> sean: i will tell you why it's not shocking. i set it in 2007 and 2,008 and ever since. journalism in the country is dead. "the new york times" is not about reporting. they are about advocates. they are an extension literally of the democratic party establishment. th basicalhe press office. all right, great job, both of you. good rant tonight, dan bongino. when we come back to my president trump making mourners on north korea and a lot of it good. will also be joined by sebastian gorka, daniel hoffman. they are here straight ahead

donald trump could not have achieved more than 24 hours, 25 hours he was awake. what more could he have achieved? at the end of the day, he is solving the problems other people left for him. this isn't just about the obama administration. this is about the last 25 years, from bill clinton onwards, the situation in this part of the world on the peninsula was getting worse and worse by the year. the nuclear capability, detonating nuclear warheads, launching ballistic missiles over the sea of japan with a range of more than 2,000 miles. those are not problems created by the trump administration. but guess was trying to solve it? donald trump. it's just facts. >> sean: as i said yesterday, you were someone who wanted the president to manage expectations. did he exceed them? >> i think he has. i also think he has effectively managed the summit. it sparked a flurry of diplomatic engagement. follow-up meetings, we are already seeing secretary pompeo's engaging in shuttle
6:54 pm
diplomacy. it >> sean: north korean media id they are coming to the states. >> there will be a lot of meetings in preparation for that. it reinforces the ban of testing of nuclear missiles and icbms. i think that's extraordinarily important. i would like to see follow-on agreements, may be in pyongyang in washington, d.c., so we can support the engagement. >> sean: the president said no deal unless it's complete, verifiable and irreversible. >> in the meantim we have other issues that are also being resolved of our 7,000 mias. it doesn't matter which issue you choose -- >> sean: that's an issue. >>00. >> sean: trying for years. there might've been people left behind in vietnam.
6:55 pm
>> very important issues for the average american. to this strategic one, we have a lower possibility of nuclear war as of yesterday. >> sean: real quick. >> i think we're looking at some real challenges going forward but i think the president has done a great job leading the way. >> sean: guys, great to see you. you've bgreat re in singapore. when we come back in a wait till you see the president going after claire mccaskill. it's priceless. that's next.

try on a pair and see for yourself. the view's better from here. why people everywhere are upgrading their water filter to zerowater. start with water that has a lot of dissolved solids. pour it througbrita's two-stage dissolved solids remain? what if we filter it over and over? (sighing) dissolveoh dear. remain? 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: you love president trump calling democratic senator claire haskell in misery, and she's up for reelection. she admitted to flying on a private jet but was during her rv tour. senator claire mccaskill of the great state of missouri flew around on a luxurious private jet during her rv tour of the state. the rvs are not for her. people are really upset. josh holling should win big, and has my full endorsement. claire, some advice. if you say going on an rv tour, you may want to stay on an rv. but that might have been too
