waste, rob emanuel once said, blaming president trump, for causing the hurricane while others are already limiting the failure of his response. it has not hit yet. we will show you all of the low lights. and once again we have brand-new communications just breaking tonight, more strzok-page text had been discovered and email spread we will show you the email sends how some top officials were missing information. in a new link has been discovered between lisa page and the clintons, keeps getting worse and worse, the deep state exposure now critical mass. plus be warned, senate democrats as we told you, going to try to boric judge kavanaugh, we will show you senator dianne feinstein's attempt to block the confirmation, it will not work. and important updates from the midterm elections. sit down, buckle up, with north and south carolina, virginia, everywhere in between, we start with tonight's breaking news opening monologue. ♪
hurricane florence will make landfall on the southeastern coast of the united states, we will go to the reporters in just a minute. thousands of u.s. national guard members are standing by, team is on full alert. stockpiles of resources, food, water, supplies, cots, blankets, baby formula, all preposition to help the people that are victims of the storm. virginia, north and south carolina, all operating under a state of emergency. mandatory evacuations have been in place for days. this is a serious looming national disaster. sadly we have people in this country on the left, they are trying to make the storm a political issue, if you can believe that. to some literally blaming president trump for the extreme weather. like he had control over a hurricane. the editorial board over at "the washington post" literally claiming that president trump is complicit in causing the hurricane. you cannot make this up, because of his "efforts to dismantle environmental protection that because there hurricane."
not giving president trump credit for the booming economy or energy independence or the progress with north korea, and no missiles over japan or the victory over isis, or tax cuts or so much more, but somehow they want you to believe that he is responsible for mother nature. and by the way, in less than two years of office, he has become that all mighty and powerful that he can collude with god in this case and creates massive hurricanes. it's beyond sick and beyond ugly and twisted. this derangement syndrome, the state of psychosis is reaching heights of what is borderline insanity. it is not just the abusively biased "washington post" either trying to politicize their hurricane florence, take a look. >> president trump says fema is ready for hurricane florence, but mounting evidence suggests that it could be incredibly difficult to deal with this disaster if climate change deniers are on the front line of emergency response. >> the $10 million that they have taken out of the fema budget and reallocated to i.c.e.
for detention facilities. those questions are being asked in the appropriations committee >> you are elevating trump to evil, where as having raised three kids, i just think he is a giant toddler. with no real connection to reality and no sense of empathy or responsibility. >> he came across as almost lethal and excited about the hurricane and how big it was anw tremendously wet it would be ans that came out of his mouth. >> according to two harvard scientists, it could lead to 80,000 deaths every decade. >> he is so consumed by the calamity that exists and the chaos that exist that he is not really prepared and focused, because he spends every weekend golfing instead of preparing. >> sean: these people have lost their minds, more and then a just a moment, but we go live till dealing wit or cut, standing by in north carolina in the middle of all of this, and
the winds have picked up considerably in just the last few minutes, thank you, what is going on there? it looks like you have to hold on to stand up? >> you really do, sean, and we almost got blown over here. it gives you a sense of the power of this storm, it keeps increasing. and the people here who are either watching their homes and their communities on television or those who have decided to write it out just have a long, long way to go. florence has slowed down now and it's just creeping along, where nearly when you are in an area like this that is the worst of the worst, it only lasts a couple of hours. this is going to be 24 hours of hurricane force winds that we are just now really feeling the real effect self. to the rising tide is coming in. it is a terrible combination with the storm surge that will certainly destroy the dock and send these dock sessions into town to destroy everything and anything in the path. and watch the rain come down, it
will be 40 inches of rain which equals feet of flooding. those that did not evacuate have no chance to do so right now. police and fire tell us that they are not able to respond in these kinds of conditions, even in people in life-threatening situations at times. folks are out and on their own. until the storm passes, and then the water starts to rise. all over north carolina, but certainly along the beachfront, out for hours, and could be out for weeks to come as water continues to come in, high tide continues to come in, and there hurricane force winds will only get stronger. >> sean: you better be careful, this is where reporters put their lives on the line and bringing us the story, it is extremely dangerous, be careful, also joining us now, steve harrigan, also in north carolina tonight as the storm now begins to kick in. steve, what is happening from
your vantage point? >> sean, we have seen things get worse each and every hour, i'm starting to hear things break in the darkness. the electricity is out, more than 100,000 people at least along the coast of north carolina, that could go up to 3 million by the end. it looks like some of the construction on the building opposite me is starting to blow off, we have seen the winds reached tropical storm force over the next couple of hours, hurricane force, so things will get worse overnight, and the first responders are ready, the army is here. of the guard is here, from 19 states here to volunteer and help people. most of the people have listen, they are bordered up their houses, but it could be a rough couple of days for the people here, closing down the bridge that goes mid-island to the mainland. no power, getting worse and worse as the sheets of rain continued to come down. sean, back to you. >> sean: steve harrigan, be safe. checking in with them throughout the show, and weatherbell.com's
joe bastardi, he will weigh in on some of the ridiculous claims that we showed you, and full hurricane coverage all throughout the show first we have breaking right now, new information regarding the deep state that we want to share with you. we will keep up pictures of the storm as it goes on. but we are now on day four of more revelations. new developments surrounding lisa page and peter strzok, tonight we have two new stories to bring you. according to foxnews.com, new texts that are showing that lisa page may have once interned under former president clinton. on january 19th, 2017, she texted her then boyfriend peter strzok "needless to say it was very different when i interned there under clinton, and after all of the anti-trump text messages, should we really be surprised? this is just the tear down a cherry on top of what we know is political bias at the highest levels of the fbi, the doj, also
we see director of national intelligence and the cia as we told you last night, the second new story tonight surrounding page and strzok may be potential wrongdoings in the top ranks of the fbi. judicial watch received dozens of unseen documents from the doj including email exchanges between the general counsel. remember, he left a while back. james baker, deputy director, andrew mccabe, the grand jury convened looking into him. strzok, page, and others. the newly found email chain referencing the data chain program with european intel agencies. it was sent over an unsecured device account, and rights in all caps "and [bleep] given everything going on, using a yahoo account for this." a yahoo! account from the redacted ipad, make him stop. all of the developments, this is
four nights in a row surrounding the rampant political leaking and bias and abuse of power, mishandling sensitive information. we should all demand a lot more. finally, from the highest ranking government officials, those responsible for the deep state of bureaucratic -- need to be held accountable in a court of law. we know that this goes right into robert mueller's office with the relationship with bruce ohr, christopher steele, andrew weissmann. and christopher steele does not stand by his own dossier. but that did not stop him from trying to feed information, funnel it through bruce ohr to the special counsel's office and wrote it down. by the way, the president tweeted more text messages between former fbi employee strzok and page or a disaster and an embarrassment to the fbi indeed doj, but we are learning more and more by the hour how os were leaking like mad in order to get the president. we believe that to be the cia, jeff sessions, are you paying
attention? rod rosenstein, where are you? by the way, bob mueller, are you concerned that steele was funneling information into your office? information he did not stand by when he was involved in an interrogatory in a court of law in great britain. he said, i don't know if this is true, is this acceptable behavior from the highest ranking members of our government? gregg jarrett, sara carter will be here and weigh in on the latest. we also have an update on supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh. the confirmation vote in the senate has been delayed until next week. and after weeks and weeks of partisan attacks, frankly since the announcement of judge kavanaugh, every dirty political tactic from every democrat in the senate, now at the last minute, the last second, the final hour, dianne feinstein throwing a hail mary pass. a last ditch effort to the confirmation and feinstein released earlier today this cryptic statement "i have received information from an
individual concerning the nomination of brett kavanaugh to the supreme court. that individual strongly requested confidentiality. the client to come forward or to press the matter further. i have honored that decision. i have referred the matter to the federal investigative authorities." according to reports that information surround some kind of alleged incident when kavanaugh was in high school. 40 years ago. and two sources are telling fox that senator feinstein has known about these decades old allegation since july. she has met with them, says that she had a chance to confront him publicly, and because nothing is stuck, she is throwing this in at the final hour. questioning him in private sessions. question him in a public hearing. she said and did nothing. and now with his confirmation looking imminent, feinstein is trying to pull out all the stops. all of those dirty political tactics. i warned you that this is what they would do. very predictable, same old playbook. democrats find a way to impugn the character and the standing of a republican appointed
nominee to the u.s. supreme court. it is so common, and now has its own turn, it is called borking, this is what they do in the case of ronald reagan's nominee and, never confirmed to the supreme court in large part because of the lies, the fearmongering, from then, mr. character himself, senator, well, drive the car off the bridge, leave the girl in the car kennedy, remember this. >> robert bork's america is a lan in which women would be forced into back alley abortion abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens doors and midnight raids, and school children be taught about let evolution, writers and artists will be centered at the will of government. >> sean: years later bork in the play of clarence thomas. 1991 was the year, senate
democrats, rolling out a former colleague, making sexual harassment allegations against him, this character assassination was so vicious, nasty, thomas infamously called it "a high-tech lynching." you may remember. >> this is a circus. it is a national disgrace. and from my standpoint as a black american, as far as i am concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks. who in any way deign to think for themselves. to do for themselves, to have different ideas. and it is a message that unless you cow tow to old order, this is what will happen to you. you will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured, by a committee of the u.s., u.s. senate, rather than hung from a tree. >> now we are watching a
last-ditch effort from dianne feinstein. she wants to bork judge kavanaugh, democrats made this process so partisan, so bitter, so nasty that supreme court justice liberal hero ruth bader ginsburg has spoken out. take a look. >> compare the process that you went through with what is going on today in that process. >> the way it was, was right. the way it is, is wrong. it has become a highly partisan show. i wish that i could wave a magic wand, and have it go back. go back to the way that it was. >> sean: a highly partisan show. her colleague justice clarence
thomas, also criticizing the democrats for their political shenanigans. to take a look. >> honorable, if we could use that word about more people who are in public light, people who actually ask the questions at confirmation hearings instead of spartacus that we use -- [laughter] >> had to get that in there. >> hague, 300. but in any rate. >> sean: clarence thomas, i have had the honor to meet him, the spartacus line was good. barring any borking from the democrats, he will be confirmed. coming as the election season is heating up, 54 days away from the single most important midterm election over a lifetime, i have long been warning you what is going to happen if the democrats take back the house in november?
they will rescind the trump of tax cuts, start impeachment proceedings, keep obamacare, they will block all originalist constitutionalists to the court, they went activist, open borders, eliminating i.c.e. all investigations into the deep state to end. -- even schiff said that he will go full bar on investigations into money laundering investigations against trump. i've said it a million times, the democrats want to stop this administration from being successful. in other words, helping you, the american people. how do you serve the american people by involving yourself and investigation? what do the democrats offer that will help the forgotten men and women in this country? they want to stop this success, the economic success and progress that we have, in its tracks? look closely, if you are in one of the states, you will decide the future of the united states senate. to take a close look at that map.
every one of those states is important. and by the way, if you are in one of these house races, take a look. we will scroll on your screen, you will decide whether or not nancy pelosi, adam schiff, maxine waters take control of your future in the house. you get to decide. you have the power, whether or not the president, they will impeach him, they will raise your taxes. they want open borders, they want to keep obamacare. all of that is true. they are even saying most of it. except for the impeachment part, don't say it. but if the election were held today, no one could predict with any certainty republicans maintain control of the house of representatives. they better come up with a very strong set of principles. they all need to sign it and they all need to campaign on it. it is pretty scary reality, and only you have the power in the end to stop it from happening. that is nancy pelosi and company, here with reaction to the latest on deep state development, the author of "the new york times" best seller, "the russian hoax"
gregg jarrett, also investigative reporter and contributor sara carter, sara, let's start with the new strzok-page text, four days in a row that we revealed a lot, we had the new developments today, let's get into what you think, now i think it is going to be a disaster for the fbi, for the department of justice, even the cia. they were exposed yesterday. in the intelligence community in general. >> sean, this is more than circumstantial evidence. every day we are getting more and more text messages. this is in their own writing, this is not reports that people are writing about them. this is them telling each other, we are leaking information to "the washington post," we have talked with "the new york times." this is about fisa warrants. to this is the secret warrant that the fbi obtained to spy on an american citizen carter page.
these are serious allegations right now. they need to be investigated by the by the department of justice, and the new information that has just been discovered by the judicial watch, because of constant lawsuits and pushing for the documents is incredible. because for a while, i have been reporting on sources within the fbi, within law enforcement, saying that they have been using these devices, their cell phones, sending emails by yahoo, by gmail account with sensitive information. there are spies in the united states, sean. there are people, i speak to people in the intelligence community all the time, trying to collect information. and what they look for his unsecured servers. unsecured emails. unsecure devices in order to collect that information. and what we see is that it has actually happened. >> sean: with you, gregg jarrett, i think it is a disaster of a week for the fbi, the cia, and the doj. so i guess the question now is, what happens from here?
we expect we might get the unredacted fisa warrants, 302s, the totality of strzok and page communications and mccabe, now baker, others getting back into the mix. and what about the fbi using unsecured devices? we start where we began, with hillary. >> absolutely, the fbi auto prosecuted sulfur doing the exact same thing that hillary clinton did, and that is putting sensitive information on an unsecured device that jeopardizes national security. but look at what has happened this week. now we know for sure that not only was the trump-russia collusion in case a hoax, based on fabricated evidence, but james comey's fbi and obama's department of justice were leaking this false information to a complicit media to frame
donald trump. and these text messages prove it. they were gleeful. congratulating each other on leaking this false evidence to the media. one of the most important one is this one. the article is out! well done, paige. that is a text from peter strzo strzok. so here they are, basically and writing, admitting that what they are doing is a crime. >> sean: let's give sara the last word, we have to get back to our hurricane coverage. >> concerned, all of the people in the hurricane path, but we need someone to investigate this. we need the department of justice to do its job, this is going on too long, and by next week, i believe that we will have all of the documents that are been promised. those are the fisa documents, the dossier as well as the interviews. i'm hoping we will get it
monday. >> sean: redacted and declassified? >> the president absolutely should unredacted and declassify these documents so that the country can move forward. and hopefully john huber who has been charged with this by attorney general jeff sessions is actually doing his job, because that is his job. to investigate. that was what was promised. >> sean: we need him, we could use cory booker on this. >> the john huber investigation i am convinced is nothing more than window dressing. it is not a legitimate investigation, it was all conjured up by rod rosenstein to continue to obstruct and hide his own corrupt actions. >> let's hold them accountable. >> sean: out next week, gregg, sara, thank you. as we get back to the hurricane coverage, looking at president trump, vice president pence, other senior staff attending a meeting with security, fema's 24/7 operation now underway completely. we now go to steve harrigan, on
the ground. he is in north carolina with the latest on hurricane florence. looks like it is getting rough, for you. but not as rough as before. >> sean, the rain has not stopped for hours. it is coming in through the sheets right ask you, moving sideways paid to wind has cost. starting to break things, you can hear the branches snapped, and going off to my left, the houses are broken up, and the real concern is this water, we could see 40 inches of rain in some places. describing it as as a possible inundation in parts of north carolina, first responders are in place. most of the people on the island are gone. it is pitch black. we have lost electricity. more than 3 million people could lose electricity before this is over. but there are about rescue teams that will be out, if anybody is trying to ride this out, it's going to be a very difficult night. we could expect hurricane force winds in the next hour, but already we are starting to see
some things break in the night. >> sean: steve, through a few of these together, you are doing the heavy lifting, we will call you her -- hurricane steve harrigan. you have been in some rough storms, what makes this one tougher is it is going to literally stay there for a good 24 hours with storm surging, and with heavy rains, maybe as many as 40 inches in some places, that has to be rough. do they expect a lot of flooding in the community? >> they really do, two things have impressed me, just how well the message has gotten out through the north carolina officials, they have been really clear and blunt about how dangerous this form is, and the people, usually you cover hurricanes and you see all kinds of people making light of it, hanging around. a surfing, you did not see that here. this place is a ghost town. so they have been very good as far as this goes, but it is tough to get out of here.
it was tough today, we saw people packing up. it is a huge stress on people. especially older people. they have to leave their house and worry about gas, flight cancellation, and leaving their homes behind. a lot of these people do not know whether their homes will be here when they get back. there is a double worry on the people who are going through. even those who have left. and you have to go far to get away from this flooding. >> sean: steve harrigan, hurricane steve harrigan on the ground, thank you, joining us now in morehead, city north carolina, leland vittert has had a hard time standing up, the wind has picked up considerably. >> yes, exactly, to the point where we are starting to hang onto things as we are out here. at some point we will have to move back up to the balcony of her shelter, but since we last talked to you can see the doc continuing to rise and rise with the rising tide, to steve's point about people heeding the
warnings, one of the things that the police and fire department said is that once it gets bad, they are not coming to get you if you are in trouble, and it is getting to that point where the police and fire department say that they cannot come help people. so people who thought, i can ride this one out, if they saw it go down from a category 4 to category 2, they do not have any other options than to hunker down, but many people that steve met and i meant, there were making those decisions out here. and now having the shingles rip off of their rooms. having a lot of other damage to their homes. and we are in the very beginnings of this, it would be one thing to watch this on television and realize that your house was going through this for a couple of hours, not to realize it is going through it for a couple of days, or a day at least, florence here and going with the hurricane force winds. it's at least two tide cycles that you will go through, so often times you are looking in
the storms, the storm surge hits at low tide. you do not get that luck here, because of the way that the barrier islands of north carolina are set up, normally acting as a shield or protect her from these storms as they come in. instead, acting essentially as a funnel. funneling all of those storm surge, not only up here to something like morehead, but further up the river. in communities that do not see this kind of rain. for this kind of flooding. which will have catastrophic effects. they talk about complete inundation, that's where we will have rescues going on for days when the storm ends. >> sean: all right, leland, he will be up hours on end with coverage, because the storm is going to literally slow down, locked down there for a considerable period of time. leland, be safe. we will check in throughout the night. joining us now from california, rick leventhal standing by, not your first rodeo either. >> no, definitely not. this storm is much slower than
others we have seen in the past years, so taking a while to get here. i know other parts of the carolina coast just east into the atlantic, this one is a little bit closer west, and we are not seeing it. it is not that bad yet. we are getting some significant gusts, but not seeing awful weather just yet, sean. as you can probably tell, the lights are still on. there are over 100,000 customers throughout north carolina in the dark. but here in the beach at least, they still have power. but not a lot of people here to use it. the mandatory evacuation order was very effective, please tell me just a handful decided to stick this one out. the only people on the streets, beach patrol and the fire department, but bring in the heavy trucks back to the mainland side, because they do not want to put their trucks add to risk when the storm surges through. to the is stressed over a dune down there. he will not be able to see it.
but we are expecting that it may come and meet us in this neighborhood. we are going to try to find higher ground before that happens. they are talking about a 7-11-foot storm surge at the beach, and that would put the structures in deep water. >> sean: be careful, we will watch you throughout the night into the morning, you deserve a big steak dinner on fox when you get back. thanks to your great coverage. hurricane florence coverage, but first, also denied following two other major stories out of washington today. fox news has obtained text messages from lisa page, reveals that she actually interned under clinton. sounds like jeannie ray works for mueller while she worked for the clinton foundation, and dianne feinstein made a desperate attempt to derail brett kavanaugh's confirmation. here from washington with the very latest, kristin fisher. >> republicans say that this is nothing more than an 11th hour character assassination. the democrats, they are not
entirely sure what they have. but they were referred to it to federal investigators. only no for sure is that senator feinstein says that she received information from someone who "strongly suggested confidentiality, and i have honored that decision, i have referred the matter to federal investigative authorities." the issue is so secret that even other democrats on the judiciary committee do not to know what it is. the only clue is from "the new york times." fox cannot confirm this, but the times is reporting that the matters related to possible sexual misconduct including kavanaugh and a woman years ago, back when they were both in high school. then a majority whip john cornyn puts it like this "let me get this straight, this is a statement about a secret letter regarding a secret matter of an unidentified person, right. the white house is depending kavanaugh at the same time that president trump is attacking two of his favorite targets "more text messages before former fbi
employees peter strzok and lisa page are a disaster and an embarrassment, they should never have happened. but we are learning more and more by the hour." one of the things that we learn from the new text is what you were saying earlier, sean. that's what lisa page says that she was an intern at the white house under former president bill clinton. >> sean: kristin fisher in washington tonight, thank you for that report. here with reaction, former u.s. attorney for the district of columbia, joe digenova. author of a new book, jesus is risen. out october 2nd, available for preorder on amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and tomorrow hannity.com. both doing legal work for me, and legal trouble about every other day of my life. i've every lawyer, but i've had dinner with both of them. that starts with you, joe, and the developments, also wants you
to focus in on a grand jury of the panel. we do not know what is going on. we do not know what are in the unredacted pages, the 10-12, the 30-74, we do not know anything in the 302s, everybody says it is blockbuster. >> here's what we do now. we know from the text revealed by strzok and page yesterday that we now are at a different place. the walls are closing in, but they are not closing in on the president. they are closing in on the fbi and the department of justice under president obama. those text messages by strzok and page, which reveal an illegal media strategy to illegally and criminally released fisa warrant information and name a u.s. citizen, whose information they gave to "the new york times" is a criminal offense. and by mentioning carter page,
they have now created massive civil liability for everybody involved in revealing carter page's name. including themselves, james baker, the former fbi general general counsel. prize step, everybody in the chain of command, the reporters for "the new york times" have no privileges now. they also can be sued by carter page. because although they may have been legally able to accept information, by publishing it, they reveal classified information that smeared carter page. mr. page will be a very wealthy man. >> sean: i kind of agree with you by the end of all of this. we know that the grand jury has been seated. we know that we are looking at
the lying issues, different sources that are telling me, also they are looking into the fisa abuse issues. >> they are. the problem is we do not know whether it is john huber or the security division at the justice department. the best information is that it is the national security division at the justice department. >> sean: would that not mean that everybody that signed off on the fisa warrants, otherwise the committed fraud that omitted the important information purposefully? >> yes, and yes. and that is why, and i mentioned this the other night, if you go back and look look at rod rosenstein's testimony, he answered a question in a very strange way. he said, i am relieved that i have been relieved of responsibility involving that area. that is fisa. the reason he has been relieved of those duties is that there is a criminal investigation as you
just mentioned involving mccabe and strzok and baker, and nobody knows who is ultimately responsible for all of this. >> sean: what about page and comey? >> they are all involved, they are going down. and people don't like to think about this, but james comey, strzok, mccabe, they are all going down on the fisa warrant stuff. that is not even in question. >> sean: let me get to david limbaugh, i never thought in my life -- and with everything that we have been breaking, these new text are a disaster. you literally have all of this criminality, fixing an investigation, using russia information, disseminating lies before and after the election. the doj, top fbi, intelligence agency, cia, and literally propagating false russia
information, feeding it, trying to feed it and funnel it through, i cannot believe that this has happened. but some of the people and agencies and institutions and i have grown up having the most respect for in my life. >> yes, is it any coincidence that comey linked to to start a special counsel investigation? and now we have two up the top lieutenants who were leaking, deliberately leaking in a delivery -- deliberate strategy. and can you imagine how ludicrous this is? that the fbi was investigating these people supposedly in the periphery of the trump campaign for alleged pollution with russia to interfere with the election, when they themselves were interfering with our election? >> sean: all right, i have heard a little sinister laugh
from joe digenova, why is that? >> he is going down. the dirty cop is going to go down. >> sean: you have not been wrong yet. all right, thank you both. when we come back, more updates on hurricane florence. and the breaking busy news night. thank you for being with us! ♪ (avo) help control cravings and lose weight with contrave. it's fda-approved to help adults who are overweight or struggle with obesity lose weight and keep it off. contrave is believed to work on two areas of the brain:

spots that have already seen over 8 inches of rain right here, and probably about another 36 hours of rain before we are done in that here in this area of north carolina before it moves off towards the east. a center of the storm looking like it as may be beginning to make the southwesterly turn, and that is going to make a big difference based off of exactly what happens as you move southwest on the coast. i want to show you this, 112-mile-an-hour wind on the buoy in the ocean. 81 miles an hour they are. really concerned about the white that you are seeing around the new bern area, that its winds over 100 miles an hour. and a lot of surge, especially in the inlets right around the river, and up towards new bern, we will be watching incredible flooding there and the flooding that comes and will not go anywhere for a couple of days. here's the track, continuing to move very, very slowly. sunday-monday, moving a little bit quickly by tuesday pretty much out of here. but probably 36 hours ahead.
of hurricane and tropical storm force winds in the same area. it will be a rough one. >> sean: rick reichmuth, we will watch all night. joining us with reaction, chief meteorologist at weatherbell.com, author of "inconvenient revelations he will not hear from al gore and others" joe bastardi is with us, a whether or not, longtime frenemy dominic mine. it is not a compliment, you have been storm chasing, giving every hurricane, and pinpointing from day one, it is now going to make the southwesterly turn that you have been telling me about from wilmington down to myrtle beach? >> yes, that is a big problem, first of all, the fema responders and the president has been leading great -- i tell you, i was fired up to go out there myself the other day. these people who are the first line of defense when the weather declares war on the country, which is what is going on right now. a lot less frequent than it used to be, the '30s, '40s, and
'50s. you cannot change weather, but you can try to mitigate problems. remember hurricane irma when we were talking about the southwest move into cuba that it would weaken the storm? there is one computer model that hits is quite often. that is the european generated model. it is been insisting that after it reaches cape fear tomorrow morning, turning southwest word and then making a second landfall near georgetown, south carolina. cat island, what that would mean is probably an extra 5-$10 billion of damage. the storm moves to the east of myrtle beach, instead of coming up the coast, moving southwest word, myrtle beach is wind goes from northeast-east, and now not as bad as what you are seeing, but they will have 24-36 hours of hurricane conditions and
severe flooding. so that is the next target once we get through with what is going on now which will not be until later. >> sean: you look at "the washington post," they say that trump is complicit when it comes to extreme weather, he is complicit. he plays down humans role. you have been -- everyone says that the science is irrefutable. and it is it. everybody agrees. did donald trump cause the stor storm? >> no, donald trump did not cause the storm. he did he cause the seven major hurricanes that hit in the 1950s along the eastern seaboard? if you had decades like the '30s, the '40s, the '50s, people would think that the apocalypse is coming. they are doing it because -- >> sean: we have more hurricanes now than in past decades? >> the amount of hurricanes, the last 50 years from florida to new england is 37% of what it was in previous 50 years, so if there is climate change going
on, it is decreasing the amount of major hits. this is dragging the weather and climate into the mud, i don't like it, but we have to live with it. of the biggest thing is to get the forecast right, because if you do that, people will listen. >> sean: and lives can be saved, that is the important part of your science. >> that is the important part. >> sean: we continue to monitor hurricane florence, and reaction to the breaking news, dan bongino is next. ♪ (vo) this is not a video game. this is not a screensaver. this is the destruction of a cancer cell by the body's own immune system, thanks to medicine that didn't exist until now. and today can save your life. ♪ ♪
since you're heading off to dad... i just got a zerowater. but we've always used brita. it's two stage-filter... doesn't compare to zerowater's 5-stage. this meter shows how much stuff, or dissolved solids, gets left behind. our tap water is 220. brita? 110... seriously? but zerowater- let me guess. zero? yup, that's how i know it is the purest-tasting water.
there was. that you have sadly high ranking people, the doj, fbi, cia, all trying to stop him from becoming president, and after he is president, to destroy him. >> yes, sean, this was a very sophisticated information laundering operation that had two main prompts. prompt number one was the bruce ohr doj channel, to flush the dossier information to the doj. the second prong was using media sources to feed that information to to then feed that information back into the court system to make it appear that it had come up in multiple sources. it is very sophisticated, but very devious at the same time. >> sean: and you work for the secret service, you respect law enforcement as much as i do, i know mark penn does as well, and it seems to be elaborate, sophisticated, using the powerful tools of intelligence, and the most powerful people in the country in many ways, and
they got caught. where does this end? >> these recent texts show that there is no question that the massive leaking of top-secret, confidential, fisa court warrant was being given out to the press on a routine basis that they were holding cheering squad four. >> sean: i think it is worse than that. the information they use to obtain the fisa warns, no offense, you work for clinton, bought and paid for russian lies that they disseminated the american people, altering an election. and then of course destroying a sitting president. he duly elected president. >> but why weren't page and strzok fired a long time ago for the activity? what was going on there that they were trying to get the elected president even before he was elected, in the systematic leaks of top-secret information? the fisa court is supposed to be the secret of secret in the
country. that is the whole point. >> sean: do you believe that the information is saying that rod rosenstein has been removed of his duties, dan bongino, as it relates to fisa? >> yes, sean, i think that that is possible. rod rosenstein signed the fourth fisa warrant, why is that critical? because that warrant had been signed when after the interview of papadopoulos, and if the information was false and it was going to be signed off on by the time that rosenstein signed it on the fourth fisa, they would've undoubtedly known the information. >> sean: they would've known on fisa one. >> that is why he is in trouble. >> sean: it is all coming out. thank you both. when we come back, leland vittert, and update from north carolina, straight ahead. ♪ -computer, order pizza.
