they were talking about the president restoring gemma costas press pass. after delivering the pardon, the president left for mar-a-lago where he will be spendingholida. that's about it tonight. tune in every night at 8:00 for the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and group think. here is a sean hannity live from new york. >> sean: welcome to "hannity," this is a massive newsbreak. the witch hunt, mueller may soon be over. today, the president submitted answers to the written questions. a huge development, big win for the president and a crushing blow to the president's political opponents. we will bring you the very latest details all coming up tonight. also, a total media freak out over something the president never did. and also is right about regarding clinton and james comey. we also saw an important message about what is the situation
ongoing in saudi arabia. the president's comments today and we are going to give you a "hannity" history lesson on america, at times having to deal with really evil, bad actors for reasons that make sense. it tonight, the turmoil at our southern border, dozens of migrants have now been arrested. hundreds more are believed to be criminals, and gang members, and traffickers, others merely in search of a better life and economic opportunity, but now all our demanding passage into the u.s. and the people in tijuana, they have just had it tonight. in moments, we are going to break down the risks and costs associated. what it means for you with illegal immigration. and we will expose tonight the mainstream media's hypocrisy -- it's stunning -- surrounding ivanka trump, james comey, email, hillary clinton, hysteria, all the hypocrisy on that and also michael avenatti, and now that the dust has settled, we are going to put the midterm results in perspective and tell you why the media never wants to talk about it. the big blue wave was a little
ripple. we will tell you why it didn't materialize, and we will show you how one failed democratic gubernatorial candidate is becoming the world's worst sore loser. a lot to cover, it will take the full hour. thanks for being with us. we start with eric breaking news opening monologue. breaking moments ago, we learned president trump has submitted written answers to the special counsel robert mueller and the president's attorney, jay sekulow, issued this statement." speak of the president responded in writing. rudy giuliani adding that it has been opposition from the outset that much of what has been raised calls for serious constitutional issues and is beyond the scope of a legitimate inquiry. the president has nonetheless provided unprecedented cooperation. the special counsel has been provided with more than 30 witnesses, 1.4 million pages of material and now the president's
written responses to questions. it is time to bring this inquiry to a conclusion." make no mistake, huge win tonight for the president and his legal team. his attorneys were pushing for written answers. that means no subpoena fight, no subpoena before the grand jury, no in-person interview, no year-long flight headed towards the supreme court, no perjury traps, and keep in mind, these were all questions, none of them were about obstruction of justice. why? because there never was any, just like there was never a collision. instead, mueller focused on this russia collusion and time and time again, the president has already answered these questions, denied any collision, any conspiracy, any coordination with any foreign government, especially russia. now this has just become a formality. after spending nearly 600 days, the investigation might soon finally be coming to an end. the media hysteria conspiracy theories, they will just find something new to lie to you
about. if we really care about truth and equal justice in the united states today, tonight the door is wide open. hillary clinton is bought and paid for dirty russian dossier filled with russian lies, rapidd using those bought and paid for hillary russian lies, literally fraud committed against judges to get subpoenas to get warrants against a trump campaign associate carter page. then after that, the coordinated leak efforts to literally live to the american people. propagandize them, misinform them so that would influence the 2016 election. that all now needs to be investigated if we really care about russia collusion. and equal justice under the law, and equal application of our la, internet, the mueller probe, that seems to be winding down. in "the new york times" is reporting that trump wanted to order the department of justice to prosecute james comey and hillary clinton.
now, does that sound like breaking news to you? because, it isn't, it shouldn't, and because we know how the president feels about hillary and james comey, and we know hillary committed crimes. it's not even in dispute. of course the anti-trump haters on fake news cnn and conspiracy tb msnbc, acting like they found it. they've been looking for two years and now they found it. maybe they could have listened to his rallies that they wouldn't play when they were chanting "cnn sucks." >> this is what happens in authoritarian countries, the president or leader orders the prosecution of his political enemies. >> i think it is evidence of abuse of power. to speak of this is absolutely off the charts. donald trump is basically running his office like he of the head of a banana republic banana republic. >> i think this is a scandal 15
on a 1-10 level. he was essentially trying to use the apparatus of the state to punish his political enemies. >> sean: he never did anything! never, ever! it's a phony story, fake news. when the a story broke, we reached out for reaction and he said, how is this even our story? he is right and he will join us later with much more. during the 2016 campaign, then-candidate trump repeatedly said he wanted hillary clinton prosecuted for her email servers scandal, and clinton and comey both should have been investigated. we only investigate trump, i guess, in this political climat climate. he gave hillary clinton the nickname "crooked hillary" for a reason. she should have been prosecuted. the single easiest slam-dunk i've ever seen in my life. when you delete emails, plead the fifth. by the way, comey's actions legally need to have been looked
into and it should be. when we come back also tonight later on in the program, we will have senator lindsey graham joining us. he will weigh in on all of us. and now we turn to the situation with saudi arabia's crown princ prince. pay close attention, this will be very hard for the liberals in the media to pay attention to. i want them to pay close attention. the murder of the saudi journalist, jamal khashoggi, was reprehensible. that is evil. i have little doubt that this evil act was carried out in the saudi consulate at the direction of saudi arabia's crown prince known as m.b.s. there is nobody who has been tougher on saudi arabia and nobody more consistent on my criticisms of saudi arabia for a whole host of reason. i have been their loudest critic for good reason. i have called out saudi arabia's rampant human rights abuses, their complete lack of common decency, saudi arabia's
treatment of women, they can't drive, up until recently, couldn't vote, and literally have to ask their husbands if they may travel abroad, gay people are killed just for being who they are, christians and jews are not allowed to build a temple or church. and until recently, women in saudi arabia couldn't do anything without being around the male guardian from their family or else they would get in trouble. by the way, we may need permission for just about anything, even to marry, to work. being gay is illegal, punishable by death. christian and jewish temples band. they are more than happy to accept tens of millions of dollars. think about this, the clintons took tens of millions of dollars to enrich themselves and their foundation from the saudi kingdom. what did they get? they have never been as critical as we have been. i will call out evil wherever i see it.
the murder of jamal khashoggi was evil. the world is an ugly, dangerous, complicated place. today, president trump issued this statement reaffirming america's strategic partnership with saudi arabia and had this to say with reporters at the white house that they took such umbrage with. take a look. >> if you look at iran, take a look at iran, and look at what they are doing, they are a terrorist nation right now. although, i must tell you, they are a lot better right now than they were when i took office. when i took office, they were heading in a very, very bad direction. at some point, things very positive frankly could happen with iran, but we also need a counterbalance. and israel needs help also. if we abandon saudi arabia, it would be a terrible mistake. >> sean: the president is right and i want to explain in all specificity why this isn't about politics. as evil as this kingdom is as i have said over the years, the president is right.
saudi arabia has now emerged at an important point in history as a partner in the middle east. let me explain this, and it brings us to a quick "hannity" history lesson. as a country, we have to make a lot of tough, very, very difficult strategic decisions, not like putting millions in your pocket like oh, the clintons. and deal with a lot of immoral and in some cases evil international partners. i will give you one quick example, world war ii. we struck alliances with stalin, a mass murderer in russia, the former soviet union. that evil dictator would go on to murder more people than adolf hitler, but the survivor of america and europe was in jeopardy, and during the cold war, we partnered with dozens of brutal dictators to violently squash the spread of the evils of communism. now saudi arabia is similarly, horrible regime, but there is a key alliance that is now in place, and that would be the united states and israel, and egypt, and jordan, and also,
let's see, the saudis, and the emirates. and what is the alliance agains against? iran. they are currently the number one state sponsor of terror. they are funding numerous proxy wars. and if they want to wipe israel off the map, if they ever get nuclear weapons, millions and millions of people can die. we have to make a strategic decision. we can't take that risk. in fact, the current alliance -- again, the u.s., israel, jordan, the saudis -- they have been a crucial force in checking this iranian hedge enemy. this is the alliance we now need to stop these radical threats from ever getting their hands on nuclear weapons. still many on the left are in meltdown mode over the president's handling of saudi arabia. you know what? where have they been? former obama u.s. investor, samantha power tweeting, "it is
a mean and nasty world but trump siding with the meanest and nastiest out there, whether vladimir putin, or assassin m.b.s. will leave the world even nastier." this statement is a green light for would-be murderers in countries that have things trump things we need to." how about a history lesson for you, maybe you forgot about your time and the obama administration because it was barack hussein obama who sent tanks, f-16 fighter jets, over $1 billion to a guy by the name of mohammed morsi, he was with the radical muslim brotherhood that rose to power in egypt. mohammed morsi, the guy who once referred to people in israel and jews as the descendants of apes and pigs in the muslim brotherhood funding terrorism around the world. by the way, that is your former boss, obama, who partnered with them for no strategic reason.
obama gifted that guy billions of dollars, material support, planes, tanks, and cold hard cash. we can't forget that yeah, obama also partnered with the radical state sponsors of terror and a horribly flawed nuclear deal, the u.s. and $1.7 billion in cash and other currency directly to them. the same people who plotted the destruction of israel and the united states on a daily basis, and thank god is instructing them to do it, and treat women and christians and jews and everyone else. so please, spare us the faint moral outrage. remember, as i pointed out earlier, hillary clinton totally ignore the saudi arabia treatment of women and christians because they bought her silence. she is never criticized the way we have regularly on this program.
today, with iran now posing the single biggest threat to the united states, the middle east, and the world, this strategic partnership with saudi arabia is too important, if at all possible, to dismantle. we can keep it together. it's smart. it's incredibly complicated, incredibly dangerous in the middle east, and on top of that, though saudis are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on weapons purchases that, by the way, both russia and china wanted, and we got. that means, what? we are going to make, let's see, vladimir putin and the leaders of china rich again? i don't think that's a good idea to take american jobs away from them. i am not willing to do that. do we want to help out, put a new alliance together? let's see, the iranians, syrians, china, vladimir putin and russia? it's a dark, evil, ugly world at times. for more complicated than what liberal networks that hate donald trump even, you know, taking a breath could ever possibly understand.
we have to turn to another situation closer to home. for weeks, we've been sounding the alarm about the massive caravan of migrants marching towards our southern border. we have tracked them through central america as they broke down guatemala's border fence, stormed into southern mexico. we have followed this journey north towards the u.s. border and warned about possible gaming and criminal infiltration. we showed you how the trump administration prepared for the approaching caravan. thousands of active-duty troops were sent to the border, razor wire was deployed to bolster the fencing, and new barriers were also constructed. hardworking u.s. border patrol agents stepped their efforts up. a serious situation, but not according to the democrats. remember for a while they were ignoring the migrant caravan and accusing republicans of fabricating this phony crisis in the lead up to an election for political gain? others called all a conspiracy theory. obama laughed at the idea. at one event he was speaking at.
no, it's a real situation with real consequences. we now know our own dhs and leaders in mexico saying that over 500 criminals are now traveling with the migrant, and according to a new report, law enforcement has even paid undercover informants to address security threats. by the way, that is called being smart. yesterday we saw in tijuana, authorities having to arrest 34 members of that caravan for offenses like public intoxication, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest. despite all of this, the federal judge yesterday in san francisco, what a shock, dealt a blow to the president's border security efforts in the rule of law, striking down a temporary asylum ban on those who don't apply at a port of entry. see why holding the u.s. senate and the president now campaigning and picking up seats for the first time in 100 years, a sitting president that gets the white house, is able to do this in his first midterm election. as i've been telling you, the majority of people just searching for a better life. i get that, but we have got to
bet anybody who wants to come here. 500 criminals infiltrated, walking with the caravan people. it even white mexican people now are protesting the caravan and saying that they have even been invaded. echoing president trump's tough talk on the board appeared to take look. >> [speaking spanish] >> sean: an invasion. there are now thousands on our southern border. people on the left said they would never get there. our national security is about more than just a security uninvited, unchecked, mass migration comes at a massive cost, you, we the people, the taxpayers. any report exposing how you, the american people, pay for health care for illegal immigrants to the june of $18.5 billion a year. according to the center for immigration studies, illegal
border crossings are up. comes with it, a massive price tag for the american people. we will have a lot more on this developing situation also throughout the show. tonight, the mainstream media is all but refusing to cover the crisis at the border, but instead, they are busy obsessing over a vulgar term. she briefly used a private email account, this goes back 15 months ago to send and receive some that were work-related messages. talking about a few hundred emails, 15 months ago, she was new on the job, new to washington, all of the emails have been handed over to the federal government. they are saying this is like hillary, although they never criticized her. nothing has been deleted, a nonstory. no classified information. but hillary clinton, when she was conducting state department business with an email, a bathroom mom-and-pop company, many of those emails she sent and received word top secret. she lied to us. we can prove the lie.
thousands of emails were delete deleted. guess what, none of these were turned over to the federal government, and there were media remained silent. they covered for their friends, the clintons. now are they treating the ivanka, you know, the nonstory like the biggest scandal of the century. what a bunch of phony hypocrites. to speak of the arrogance, the incredible arrogance with a little measure of stupidity. >> it's possible she is considered a princess and totally separate from the rest of the rules the american government and the president, cabinet, and advisors go by. >> when the new congress gets sworn in, the house oversight committee, they need to seek nothing less of ivanka trump and her lawyer than the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. >> they really are a mob family. they basically took what they were doing in the business, the trump organization, and brought it to the white house. they didn't care at all what the rules were and what they can and cannot do. >> sean: they didn't cover
hillary clinton's crimes. we know she committed crimes. this is hypocrisy in action. this is why so many americans don't trust the people in the media -- nor should do. it destroyed trump every second, every minute, every hour, every day. they are just hypocrites. two weeks ago, the media ignoring the story, james comey was using private email for fbi business. basically crickets. you didn't hear the same type of criticism. it's the same reason now members of the media now totally ignoring their former bff, michael avenatti appeared for so many months he was the poster child on fake news cnn, conspiracy tb msnbc, spreading file claims against just a kavanaugh that they were spreading and believing. they believed. guess what? the left, all of a sudden, they changed their guilt by accusation motto. the new standard they created in america. yet no one in the mainstream media, all of avenatti's friends, they are pretty much silent and pretty much not
saying anything. so what does that mean? it means the issue of sexual assault that is so serious, that is not what matters to them, because if it did, they wouldn't be best friends with the clinton's, would they? they would not have worshiped the media or been worshiped by the media as they have been. and keith ellison would have been vetted and called out. the issue really seems to be sexual assault or charges like this important only if they can bludgeon a republican. then there is no due process, there is no presumption of innocence. where is all the outrage on these channels, their best friends? if you are on the left, the rules don't apply to you. one set of gestures for them, and the guillotine pretty much for everyone else. the mainstream media's postelection spin doesn't help either. the delusional media are now trying to pull a fast ball on the american people saying trump has been rejected, this has been a massive blue wave. his presidency has been contained by some imaginary blue wave. in historical terms, it was a trickle.
some democrats refusing to even call the election legitimate in races that didn't go their way. we saw that in georgia in the governor's race. brian camp won outright, but stacy abrams said in georgia did not have a free and fair election and brian camp dismantled the democracy. really classy. it sounds like a sore loserrism. according to fox's account, the democrats won 232 seats in the house compared to 199 for the republicans. more races yet to be called. they picked up 37 seats for the democrats, but they lost all those seats and claire mccaskill is out, and nelson is out, and donnelly is out. oh, yeah. so, president trump, if you actually look at numbers and history did considerably it massively better the previous two democratic presidents. 2010, obama's first midterm. democratic lost 63 seats in the house, '94, bill clinton lost 52 seats in the house and ate in
the senate. bear in mind, the republicans actually added to their senate majority and by the way, that number is likely to grow next week. an important election. if you are in mississippi, that special election, november 27th. president trump will be stumping for hyde smith in her bid to become the first female senator from the great state of mississippi. that is an important vote if you live there. this is a big race. republican victory means 53-47 in the senate and support of a trump agenda, stronger economy, stricter immigration, the appointments he want goes forward. we have a busy night, busy night as i told you. devin nunes, sara carter, john solomon. and breaking news. we will react to trump defending the written answers to robert mueller. basically, that plane is landing without any turbulence. a straight.

and the clinton campaign and those russians. that is what really disappointed me about all of all of this. also, who leaked his name? i don't think he really -- there was never any collusion between the trump campaign and russia. sadly, you have half of the democrats in this country that believed that somehow the russians changed votes in the last election, and the people who have been spreading this poison ought to be ashamed of themselves. so i am glad that maybe this is coming to an end, but i will stress, i still don't believe it. i won't believe it until i see it. >> sean: they will never give it up. >> well, that's true. but to your question, i think there is some reluctance in the white house to actually go out and release all the documents -- the four buckets as we call them -- the carter page pfizer, the third renewal. we have the bruce ohr 302s, and
a fourth bucket of emails that the fbi was sending around that shows that clearly they knew what they were doing before they went to the fisa court. >> sean: especially the fourth fisa, the third renewal signed by rod rosenstein, i've never read it, i would like to read it. the 302s, that is christopher steele, bruce ohr. the fisa applications themselves, we talked about the fourth bucket with the fbi. the president said that he would be dumb i could declassify and unredacted this. he still hasn't done it. how important is it and what would it do to mute the never ending investigations that want to go on? how would that mitigate what he is trying to do to make this go on till the end of history? >> what it does for us is it gives closure to the house republicans and all the information that we have uncovered for the last two years. it would give finality to
everyone who wants to know exactly what their government did to a political campaign. that's why we want this fisa out there. we always talk about this last fisa because people will learn about the insurance policy, they will finally learn the insurance policy that they put together, to learn what it is. >> the investigation? >> well, i actually don't think so. i think the insurance policy, a lot of people thought that but what we believe the insurance policy is is what is remaining in the last fisa that no one knows yet. what james comey called a mosaic, the other facts that they have to go before the fisa court. >> sean: there is another fisa against another individual? >> no, no, no. this is the same carter page pfizer. remember when we came out and said the bulk of the fisa was made of the phony dossier and the fake news, and then you've got all these people scrambling around saying no, no, there was
all this other information? we went in and began to look at all this other information and found out that it too was not only funny but i think also as concerning or more concerning than the original document. >> sean: we will work with you. i'm not giving up until all of those people that violated all of these laws and committed all of these lies to courts and misused their intelligence and spread russian lies, real lies paid for by hillary, are held accountable. thank you, congressman. we have another major story about the deep state. john solomon reporting from the hill. questions grow about the fbi vetting of christopher steele's fbi expertise. sara carter, fox news legal analyst, let's start with your story, john solomon. >> listen, the more we learn about christopher steele the more the recent to doubt that he had any expertise whatsoever on
russia. we used this document to justify spying on a presidential candidate in the final weeks of an election. what i learned is back in the beginning of his relationship with the justice department, he produced an intelligence document predicting that vladimir pruden was losing his grip on power, on his way out the door. that has proven to not be very good intelligence, has? it's two years later in vladimir putin is fully entrenched in power. there is a lot of questions about where he got his sources and that is going to be a big issue as to what congressman just said, we used this dossier and didn't know that it was really verified. i reported in my story, john moffitt, one of the key intelligence analyst in the fbi told congress recently, they were just beginning the process of verifying the dossier when it already showed up as being "verified and substantiated." >> sean: it was presented as a truth. let us violation of law there. it's a real problem. let me go to break.
"the new york times," trump wanted clinton and comey prosecuted. first of all, he never did. i love the media getting all hypervigilant hyperventilating and in a state of hysteria, as usual over something that never happened. >> in "the new york times" berries that in paragraph six, so you really have to read to get to the point that he never did it. how is this news to begin with? for three years the president has at hillary clinton broke the law, jeopardized national security, should be prosecuted, and he vowed to reopen the case. then we learned james comey line to a fisa court and stole government documents to trigger the trump special counsel investigation, the president also said he should be investigated and prosecuted and warranted. so how is this news? i'm glad you played the clip so people on cnn and msnbc who said, this is an abuse of power by trump. no, it is not. they are wrong. they are ignorant. >> sean: as usual.
>> thomas jefferson order to prosecution, john kennedy urged his brother to prosecute the mafia and in fact barack obama ordered his department of justice not to and defer prosecution of millions of people here illegally. the president has a constitutional duty to enforce the law and prosecute those who break it. >> sean: unbelievable. sarah, go back to the beginning with hillary clinton. two weeks ago, the fbi director james comey admitted he used private email for fbi business. we barely heard a peep. hillary used an entire server. it's a 15 months ago, nothing classified, new to government, ivanka trump had a couple hundred emails. >> this is all political. this is all political, this is . ivanka drum, this is a known story. hillary clinton is the story. she destroyed her devices, she
lied, she sent classified information on an unsecured server, which we know now based on intelligence was infiltrated by other state actors, other outside forces. china, russia, who knows who else got a hold of these emails, and 33,000 disappeared, and a few of them are trickling out here and there. judicial watch was able to get a hands on. this is a flat out joke. they keep perpetrating disinformation to the american people and they don't hold people accountable who actually broke the laws. >> sean: all right, thank you all. by the way, tara will be hosting on a 600 plus radio station, my radio show tomorrow. have fun. don't mess it up. just kidding. he's done it before. when we come back, lindsey graham weighs in on the crisis on our southern border. we will get his reaction on the situation with saudi arabia. to stay with us. a lot of breaking news. and there was a tie last week, it's my

months for it to get through. we wind up releasing you into the country. this is nuts. i'm going to introduce legislation early in the next congress to make sure that if you come here illegally you can never apply for asylum. president trump's right to change his policy and we will see what happens. >> sean: it right. i have your statement on saudi arabia. i don't think there has been anyone in the media more critical more regularly for more years and then saudi arabia. how they treat women, christians and, gays and lesbians. with that said, i think m.b.s. probably did know and order the killing of jamal khashoggi. here's the problem, world war ii we had to align with a mass murder by the name of joseph stalin to defeat hitler. we didn't like that all liens, either. right now, we have a historic moment where u.s., israel, egypt, jordan, the emirates, the
saudis are now perfectly aligned against iranian hegemony and the threats of them getting a nuclear weapon with their radical ideology of wanting to destroy the world and america and israel. i agree with you about sanctions, i believe there should be a punishment, but i also agree with the president, there should not be ending the relationship. >> everything you said is true about the strategic nature of the relationship, but here's what i believe. saudi arabia needs as more than we need them. it's not too much to ask an ally not to butcher a guy in a consulate. this is not world war ii so i am not going to look away at what m.b.s. did. i think he did it, -- >> sean: i do, too. isn't there a danger we could push him into the arms, we drove him into the arms of
vladimir putin, iran, syria, and china? >> i will be honest with you, sean. there is no way no way saudi arabia is ever going to align with our own, they mortal enemies. >> sean: i got it. >> the bottom line is, i care about the strategic relationship. i'm going to support israel completely but i'm not going to turn my back on this guy. we've got at historic opportunity to tell the people in the mid east there is a new sheriff in town. if you disrespect us then you trample over civilized norms you're going to pay a price. if you want to keep m.b.s., that is your decision to make, saudi arabia. as long as you make that decision, you have a hard time with me. if you want to replace him with somebody who is not crazy, that would be a good move. >> sean: yeah, i agree with you. >> it's not complicated to me. i like saudi arabia, but this guy is crazy and needs to go. >> sean: actually really believe we have a moment in
history, this strategic alliance would actually be -- >> totally, 100%. >> sean: the moment in my mind, bring peace in the middle east. iranians are far too dangerous. we cannot allow that moment to come when they have nukes. let me ask you -- >> radical islam with a nuclear weapon is really dangerous. >> sean: yeah. that's a bad scenario. ag, who would you like to see? >> i don't really... mr. barr is good, there are a lot of good choices. i would like to see somebody in place next year who can guide the justice department in a new direction. i think jeff sessions had to go. the president was right to replace him. i like mr. whitaker fine but i don't think he's the permanent solution. i promise your viewers, if i am the chairman of the judiciary committee, we will find out about the fbi the way they got a
fisa warrant against carter pag page. 100%. if the shoe were on the other foot, they would be crucifying us right now if this was a warrant issued against a hillary clinton sympathizer. i mean, i cannot believe the double standard of our friends in the media chew on the other foot. this is somebody that hated trump, and we were going after a clinton person like this, it would be front page news all over the place. >> sean: i got to go. >> we are going to find out where it goes. >> sean: how important is mississippi question recommend i got to roll. >> if you care about judges, each care about tax cuts, you care about a strong, vote for the republicans. the democrats will take us back, the republicans keep us on track. >> sean: thank you for being with us, lindsey graham here have a happy thanksgiving. coming up, no winner last week. they will take on the media freak out and double standard and hypocrisy over the

♪ >> sean: the left predictably spinning out of control over ivanka terms emails. a lawyer blasting the quote, misinformation, and clarified that ivanka never created a private server, never transmitted classified information, hasn't deleted any emails, and by the way, this is when she first started 15 months ago. to talk about this and more, cohost of "the five," jesse watters. and fox news contributor. everyone is comparing it to something it is not, jessica. see how intellectually honest you are. this is a 15 months ago, no
classified information, no acid washing, no deletions, no hammers, no devices. big difference. >> big difference but still a big deal, no? she knew exactly what she was doing, she spelled a couple years listening to her father tried "lock her up" because hillary clinton had used an illegal private server to handle her emails, so why is ivanka to blame for this? it's a mistake, an unforced error, she shouldn't have done it. >> but i don't think ivanka ever put national security in jeopardy. >> you don't know that. >> the fbi's not investigating it because it was not a national security threat, and she did not acid wash emails and delete 30,000 of them after they were under subpoena. so she didn't have any of her friends plead the fifth, she didn't smash anything with a hammer. these were incidental emails she sent from a private account. talking about her child
schedule -- >> you haven't read them. they were all about yoga? there were all about work? >> and the wedding. >> that was a big event in their lives. >> you think it's a big deal, it's not. this is about "the washington post" trying to drum some scandal up so they can tip off the house investigations committee in order to investigate the president. >> sean: let me move onto another issue. i want to bring up this avenatti issue. he deserves to process and the presumption of innocence, that which he wouldn't give a judge kavanaugh. but the allegation, we are talking about a felony, domestic abuse, and the person says, the accuser says, he hit her, dragged her across the floor, called her a f-in gb-word. i don't know if this is true, i hope it is not. but the left seems to only care about guilt by accusation when it is a republican they can blunted, like they did an innocent man, judge kavanaugh.
otherwise they wouldn't be such great friends with the clintons, they would be so outspoken about keith ellison, and all of a sudden nobody has a word to say about mr. p.r. himself, avenatti. it's the hypocrisy, jessica. do they care about the issue that is so serious about a sexual assault, the abuse of women, or do they just care about politics? >> no, they absolutely do care about the issue of sexual assault and the abuse of women, that is why al franken no longer has senate seat. i have two seconds, give me another second. i don't think that they have been quiet, and for you to say that everyone was a fan of his, i know that he got a lot of segments on tv, he was even here on our own network with tucker calling him a creepy lawyer, or whatever. nobody is an avenatti fan on this panel and you are not going to hear any defense of it. >> i would say that he has totally disqualified himself, he has blown himself up. i believe innocent until proven guilty but you never touch a woman, and the media is so silent it shows how hypocritical they are. if it was a republican accused of doing this, it would be all
over. >> it is all over! >> sean: i want everyone to look at this moment, like ferguson, like cambridge, like baltimore, like, you know, trave on martin. everyone needs to stop rushing to judgment. and avenatti deserves the presumption of innocence and due process. all right, thank you both. by the way, it is "jessie's world" tonight. when we come back, rush weighs in on the h....

and then tried to destroy it when it was subpoenaed. i'm not going to talk about ivanka trump and her emails until somebody shows me that what she did got anywhere close to what hillary clinton did. >> sean: checkmate. that is all the time we have, we will always be fair and balanced. mike huckabee is filling in for laura. you did a great job last week. it is great to see you governor and it is always good to see you. >> mike: thank you, sean. have a great thanksgiving, it is a pleasure to be here. >> sean: here's the thing, remember when the media was questioning whether sarah, your daughter, makes pies? i know for a fact she does. in a matter of fact, i wish i was at your house eating them. >> mike: i can attest to the fact that she makes them and they are fantastic. pie, never question the
