we are covering multiple important breaking news stories tonight. buckle up. a fast paced breaking news opening monologue. we begin with this breaking news. cnn is officially being sued for $275 million for their destructive, malicious reporting of covington high school student 16-year-old nicholas sandmann. attorney lin wood, i told you. this guy is great. e is now representing the sandmann family. has a great, long track records of successfully holding these media outlets for their irresponsible -- accountable for their irresponsible reporting. smears, slanders, lies, rush to judgment. this is going to be a slam dunk. we first turn our attention to the arrest tonight. "desperate housewives" actress
actress lori loughlin and dozens others accused of participating in an elaborate scheme that's fast tracked their children's admissions into some of america's top schools and universities. this was coordinated by a manch named william rick singer. he set up a fake charity to pay bribe college coaches and others and pay high iq individuals to frequently take s.a.t. tests on behalf of his clients and even have some of the proctors put in the answers. in one instance, lori loughlin and her husband agreed to pay half a million dollars in bribes so their two granddaughters to gain admission to usc. as her crew the crew team. you got to work at that for years and year to get on the crew team. even though neither daughter ever participated in the sport. in another instance, felicity huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to rig her daughter's s.a.t. scores. both actresses are now charged
with felonies and just two of 50 people arrested including 33 other parents, two s.a.t./a.c.t. administrators, nine college coaches, and one college administrator. as joe lieberman said on this program last night, america is a ladder. you climb and climb. when you get to the top, you help others behind you. what has happened here is they are being accused of doing the exact opposite of that. very serious charges.ap in other words, trying to use great wealth, power, to hinder those below them. those that worked hard. those that now are trying to rig a system in favor of themselves at the expense of others. they should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. look at this. if convicted, it could be up to 20 years in a federal prison. meanwhile, fellow actor jussie smollett, we have an update on him today.y. he appeared in court and he is still progressing his innocence despite what is now an overwhelming amount of evidence
against him. smollett is charged with 16 felony counts related to allegedly staging a hate crime hoax. we believe in due process. presumption of innocence. not looking good for him. were going to have more of these two big breaking stories later in the show. first, tonight, big breaking news capitol hill, nancy pelosi's speakership is literally tonight on life support. remember, in january, she took the gavel, a very narrow majority with just four votes over the necessary 216 needed to win the speakership. and now she is walking on pins and needles to maintain support of some of the most radical elements right inside her own party. as if she's not radical enough. she's speaker in name only. tonight, pelosi is facing a huge backlash, daring to say impeaching president trump is "not worth it." congresswoman ocasio-cortez, t
congresswoman tliab and others are now lining up to refute the speaker. tliab had this to say earlier. take a look. >> do you think that president trump should be impeached? >> i'm so sorry. i have to go. i think i've already made that very clear. >> sean: just in case you forgot, this was tlaib's position from her very first day in congress. you can't forget this. >> when your son like that you and says, mama, you won. >> sean: those are liberals that kumbaya together. of course ocasio-cortez also disagrees with the speaker which now puts her very speakership in jeopardy. take a look at this. >> i think this is a conversation in the caucus. and l i know a lot of members in the caucus have a different opinion, but that's why we caucus. >> do you have a different opinion? >> i -- i happen to, yes.
>> do you think president trump should be impeached? >> sean: also tonight, congressman al green is now planning to force a house vote donald trump's impeachment. for what? who knows. and pelosi seems to have a real, real thin grasp on her own party. let not your hearts be troubled, though. democrats have attempted to impeach every single republican president since ronald reagan. it has never been successful, abut it's never also been this bad. so let's recap. on the onene hand, you have the radical extreme file of democratic socialists demanding donald trump's impeachment for no reason whatsoever. and on the other, nancy pelosi, why the divide? there's a speaker think, for example, it's a bad move politically? will it hurt them in 2020 because of the fallout surrounding former president clinton's impeachment? is pelosi trying to obfuscate so that she can later claim the evidence is forcing her to carry out impeachment proceedings that you never wanted to do?
or does she have some insight perhaps into the mueller investigation that there actually is no trump-russia collusion, no evidence, as we have been telling you. we also know the answer to all those questions. make no mistake. speaker pelosi is speaker in name only. ultimately, she will do anything and everything to placate this radical base inside her party and their numbers are growing. those radicals also are about to face a major disappointment. spoiler alert. mueller's come up empty. there was no trump/russia collusion. instead, a corrupt, abusively biased, politically motivated two to your justice system has been h uncovered. and tonight, we have hugee breaking news in our "hannity watch" on the deep state. i'm going to go slowly. lot of information. everything we thought we knew about these deep state actors has now been confirmed, and we have brand-new developments tonight that are about to blow the lid off our entire two-plus year investigation.
i have been saying, hang in there. things are going to happen that will impact many of the lives of these deep state actors that we have exposed night after night on this program. earlier today, georgia congressman, courageously, doug collins, released the full transcript of the lisa page testimony. last week, he released the bruce ohr testimony. we have more proof that there was working at the highest levels of the doj and fbi -- not rank and file, unfortunately, they are tarred and feathered unfairly over this -- they sought, gave special treatment during the investigation into hillary clinton all while persecuting her opponent, donald trump. for background, it is important to remember, lisa page was the fbi deputy director to andrew mccabe's general counsel. that was until he was fired for lying. she was forced to resign because
of her plated and he jumped biased, which of course was uncovered in a series of text messages with her then fbi boyfriend, peter strzok. according to paige's testimony, just released earlier today, well, obama's department of justice was unusually intrusive into fbi's criminal investigation into hillary clinton. in other words, they managed it from the top. they orchestrated it. they orchestrated her breakdown phony investigation as we have been telling you about. they make sure hillary clinton never, ever had a chance to be charged as she should have beend as even comey's top lawyer in the fbi, james baker, wanted to charge her with a violation of the espionage act, for felony. they tried to tamper with their interviews. look at this quote from the testimony. "a soon as the planning started to interview some of the more
high-profile witness, not just mrs. clinton, but also huma abedin, cheryl mills, jake sullivan, and her core team, the department of justice wanted to change the sort of structure and the number of people who were involved. "keep in mind, this is the doj f barack obama headed by loretta lynch. it was lynch just days prior to this decision, just happen to me to bill clinton secretly on a tarmac in phoenix, arizona. talk 45 minutes about their grandkids. just before his wife was cleared of all charges. it was loretta lynch who asked james comey to call hillary's criminal investigation, which is what it was, "a matter." it was james comey who agreed to go along with loretta lynch and call it a matter. and don't forget, it was lisa page's then fbi boyfriend, peter strzok, he and comey changed the language in clinton's
exoneration letter that was written and may before they ever interviewed any of the main people involved from the legal standard t of grossly negligent, which would be a crime, to extreme carelessness, which it is not,, and it was done on purpose. according to page also, by the way, we have the entire thing. this is the transcript, right here. this is 300 and whatever, 70 some odd pages. i've been digging through this thing all day. the fbi knew they doj was tryinf to bring the investigation,ig forcing them to break protocol. listen to this quote. "we all felt we were more credible than the justice department into closing was investigation out." the whole team really felt the justice department, led by lynch, headed by barack obama, were being led by democrats who would be to grabs all the democratice candidate. she's admitting it was rigged and now she's implicating
loretta lynch's and barack obama's department of justice. absolving democratic candidate at all costs, change all the rules, all protocol. just think about that. the doj, loretta lynch, under barack obama, when it came to hillary clinton, again, the upper echelon, the top people of our justice system, or working hand-in-hand to make sure that she never got charged with what every other american wouldit be charged. "that matter was swept under the rug." but the witch hunt against donald trump, that is much different story. according to this same transcript we have here, lisa page who's admitting after nine months of the fbi's investigation that began right after the exoneration of hillary and in july of 2016, after nine months, they had no evidence of collusion, whatsoever! nine steady months of investigation. this is before the appointment
of mueller. "it still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing, and other findings could result in not ultimately touching any senior people in the administration or on the campaign." still, despite absolutely no evidence that anybody has ever seen of trump-russia collusion, in spite of media hysteria, nonstop, hyperventilating coverage for two years, democrats hoping and praying that somehow the special counsel mueller is going to find at all, so far, we haven't heard of anything. mueller is now on day 664 of his additional intensive investigation after nine months before him. still zero evidence of trump-russia collusion. everyone around the president has been subjected now to literally three years of harassment. people having to pay more for lawyers and they are gettings paid working for the government. predawn raids. process crimes.
length prison sentences for offenses totally, completely unrelated to donald trump, the campaign, or anything russia for that matter. oh, but they did indict russian intelligence agents. they will never be extradited. did the fbi show up at huma abedin store in the middle of the night? what about cheryl miles? now, they did not. we have been living -- we now have the proof -- this is on top of the ohr testimony -- and they are so much more of this to come. in a two to your justice system. that is all about to change. justice, i can tell you, reporting for my sources tonight, is on the horizon. stayon tuned. one lawmaker on capitol hill, not interested in anything truthful or justice, yep, adam schiff, who is using my name to raise a lot of money. please, help schiff take on hannity. come on the show. we've invited you. he's a known liar, leaker, only
interested in bogging the trump administration down with, what, six to eight congressional investigations into every single aspect of donald trump's life?on probably going back to nursery school. take, for example, the committee's questioning of icchael cohen. we now know prior to cohen's testimony, schiff's staffers briefed and potentially coached cohen for over ten hours. today when schiff was asked about his play it dumb i pointed witness tampering, he did his very best to lie and dodge the question. come on the show, adam. we are prepared. we have everything you have set for two years. watch this. >> i had a brief phone call with my staff, mr. cohen, and his attorneys to encourage them to come and testify voluntarily. that was the center of my communication with him, which was on the phone. several republicans, mr. meadows, jordan, the president and others have pushed out those false narrative that i
spent ten hours with mr. cohen. that is simply not true. they know it's not true but it makes for good fox bonded commentary. so they have pushed outdi this. >> sean: adam, we never said you spent ten hours alone in a room with michael cohen. we are saying our staff spent ten hours alone with him. why? also, breaking tonight, guess what? judicial watch has filed an official ethics complaint against schiff over this improper contact with cohen along with a secret meeting schiff had with fusion gps counterclaims, glenn simpson, they just happen to run into each other, while simpson was a key witness in his ongoing committee probe. he needs to not only be recused, he needs to be investigated fully. my advice, by the way, congressman schiff, you do have the right to remain silent. but i think we both know that's not going to happen since he is in love -- it is rage,
compulsive, trump bashing every hour, every day, every week. a busy night tonight. a lot more to get to play joining us now with reaction to this huge -- and i bet he read twice all pages because he's a maniac when it comes to this, the author of the number one best seller, "the russian hole," gregg jarrett. fox news investigative reporter, sara carter, and the ranking r member of the judiciary committee, doug collins from georgia. first of all, congressman, i want to say thank you. all of us and so many otherss that have been a part of our team that had broken a lot of stories on this program, and i give all credit to their hard work, we have been saying, releases, releases, and there is so much more to come. 302s, fisa applications, gang of eight. what now can we expect, now that you have broken the dam and we are beginning to get more insight than we have had? >> you can expected to continue. we'll continue, as i promised
the american people, as we went through these, going through it in a very methodical pattern, putting this out there so we can -- people can begin to see what is actually going on. you made a great statement at the beginning. as a two to your justice system. the president has been unfairly attacked from the moment he was elected in november of 2016. and now we are beginning to see the vast scope of what most of us saw. as t clinton was treated completely differently than what we ended up seeing mr. trump being treated, and that is just wrong. when you have the correct triumvirate of peter strzok, mccabe, and page, when they been to been involved from day one, to the appointment of mueller, this just shows there is a two tiered system and we are going to say, we'll get this out, and we'll put it in ways that people can understand, we'll take it methodically as we go, as we getle them cleared, ad we'll get'r them out of the american people. >> sean: i want to thank you for doing this. there have been many other
courageous people. jordan, meadows, devin nunes, i can't name everybody, matt gaetz. all these guys. sara, i know you read this today, and the interesting thing is, aa lot of your early reporting is corroborated, because all saw this information. we now got closer to john brennan, we now get closer to loretta lynch, which gets is closest to barack obama. what did he know, when did he know it? >> i think you're absolutely right. one of the things that i think i found most fascinating in the testimony, if you actually go back to bruceo ohr's testimony and compare it to lisa page, they both have different statements as to when lisa page actually knew about christopher steele. this is something i haven't seen out there. lisa page basically says that she didn't know anything about the dossier in august 2016. but bruce ohr specifically states in his testimony that he went to visit h andrew mccabe at
his office with information that had just been given to him by christopher steele on july 30th. soul he goes to the office to mt with andrew mccabe and lo and behold, who was there to meet with him, lisa page. so actually he met with lisa page in august of 2016. it was information that was actually given to him by christopher steele. they are in the office. lisa page obviously right now, looking at the testimony, i would say that we are seeing a lot o of finger-pointing. she's pointing at the justice department. they were in charge. they didn't want us to move forward. i believe that is honest -- i think she's being honest. but the fbi was also heavily involved and as we have noted in past stories, from the top down, the people that were involved in this, and covering up as well, for hillary clinton. we see that withy james baker's testimony, when james baker, specifically -- >> sean: exactly. gregg, one thing i picked up
here in the ohr transcripts last week, now these -- by the way, how many times did you read it? >> you are right, twice. >> sean: gregg can't help himself. i watch him in his office. >> its great staff stuff! >> sean: it's true, you are a maniac. it's okay. here is what i sensed in s both the ohr testimony and the page testimony. i sense they are telling a lot of truth here. >> oh, yeah. >> sean: they were revealing that they understand the stakes are so high. >> begin with page 20. "every person on the team do not charges would be brought. against hillary clinton." that is an amazing statement. she hadn't even been interviewed. chairman gowdy says, how could you know no charges would be brought? you haven't even talked to her htyet? she said, well, i'm not an expert on the law -- even though she's a lawyer -- but it was our impression that she didn't intend or have knowledge to have classified information on our
server, which is of course total bunk, not to mention the fact that the law doesn't require intent or knowledge. >> sean: thank you! it doesn't require intent and they had the right words in there. gross negligence. it seems like the fbi knew it and they were mad. they were being controlled by loretta lynch and her justice department in ways that never happened and in the usual case, just like the field agents were ripped out of the equation by the fbi.th all right. my observation, congressman, and i applaud you again, is that as you continue to release things,e as other things, 302s, gang of eight, the fisa warrants come out, these people are in deep trouble, and there will be a countability. right or wrong? >> there will be. i think this is what we're finding out from the attorney general and the due attorney general, he's understood this. he spoke about it when his confirmation hearing. let me go back to something. i think what you said was true. we have to -- it can't be a two
tiered dress assistant. >> sean: sara, my sources are very clear. there are things now -- these people are in trouble. a a lot of them. >> they are in big trouble, sean.an the attorney general is an honest, decent man. he will do the right thing. he's going to investigate this. the evidence is all here before the public, and all they need to do is follow up with questioning these people and holding people accountable, and they will be. >> sean: last 15 seconds. what it's going to happen? >> s collusion with a political ploy, according to lisa page, p and they were using it as an insurance policy. >> sean: all in your book. perfect title. thank you, all. yet another shocking statement made by congresswoman omar. we'll tell you what she said,ou get reaction. geraldo, dan bongino. breaking news out of hollywood about s.a.t.s, ects, and colleges. ♪ at midas, with every oil change you get a free tire rotation.

♪ >> sean: another day, another shocking statement from congresswoman omar. she recently was highly critical of president obama in an interview with "politico" suggesting that obama's policies aren't much different than mtrump's. that is a joke. on monday, fox news asked omar about her obama-trumped comparison. this was was a pretty despicabe reaction. take a look. >> absolutely not. >> sean: here with reaction, fox news contributor, fox news at large correspondent geraldo rivera. there are certain things that i don't want the republican party dealing with. we've got a world of nuclear weapons. we want to make sure that every american has opportunity and i
have no patience for any conservative orat republican, racism, bigotry, and anti-semitism, no patience for this. the democratsts couldn't get the votes to even mention the woman's name, and they give the watered down, we'll blame everybodywa garbage. condemn everybody. >> if what you are saying, sean, is that they are their activism and their idealism sometimes leads them to intemperance, i totally agree. that was a classic example. we only get one president at a time. you need decorum, there is a reason you call the president mr. president. there is only one of them. there's only been 45 of them in the history of the american public and prayed for her to be so insulting -- that is more than scornful. that is insulting, it is beneath any representatives. i applaud the fact that this
incoming freshman class in congress more accurately in terms of diversity reflects the constituency that they seek to serve. but when you hear someone say that, that sounds like an amateur insulting the president of the united states and losing votes. rahm emanuel is right. she's pushing a party too far to the left. f it will lose. >> sean: dan, you put it all together, even during labor, even if the babies born, as long as it's made comfortable, that mother can decide whether lives or dies. a lot of democrats supporting thef new green new deal. almost all of them in unison. they just hate trump. more than even doing good things for the country. >> this is who the democrats have always been.s i can't say this enough. the gift of donald trump has been -- >> sean: it's not. joe lieberman wasn't like this. he was on the show. >> sean, everything that is old is new again. what did fdr talk about? attacking the supreme court. what came up this week with eric
holder and a bunch of republicans -- none of this. absolutely none of this is new. hillary care, all of this stuff. let me tell you one more thing in response to representativeon omar, he's become a real embarrassment to the democrat party with her anti-semitic nonsense. what she said was really disgusting. i'm a conservative, i proudly served in the secret service agent under barack obama, but he was the president of united states. and the problem is, liberals -- we as conservatives think liberals are people with bad ideas, liberals think conservatives are bad people with ideas. there is a big difference. >> sean: conservatives are evil, inherently. geraldo, we learned in this -- i have this big pile of page testimony on top of bruce ohr's so much more coming. and i'm looking at this, and i'm thinking, wow. nine months since july before the appointment of mueller. all they did was investigate
trump-russia collusion, and had nothing, except the clinton phony bought and paid for dossier with russian lies by a guy that won't even stand by the dossier,r, but all of these big people in the doj and fbi bought it. hook, line, and sinker. they wanted hillary to end after they help exonerate her. >> one quick note that will anger my friend and colleague, dan bongino. i deplored when joe wilson, the republican of south carolina, called president obama a liar during his obamacare address to congress. i think thato the president -- >> sean: not true. go ahead. >> i didn't like that either. in terms of russia collusion, this has been the biggestca canard, the phony, the fake, there is no russia collusion. it is russia delusion. bill barr owes me a thousand dollars. all of these liberals are going
to run and scurry when they bring up this fake story, russia collusion. can't wait for that report. >> sean: how does this and? as terry moran says, for the media and all the democrats that have been reading up a conspiracy theory a day, every hour, for two years. dan, last word. big bombshell's pages testimony, as of may of 2017, she said it still could have obeen literally nothing, the ce against trump. but they've already sworn that they verify the information on thehe fisa. t those two things can't possibly be true. >> sean: dan, you can't verify something that the author says -- no one can verify it. >> you can't -- >> sean: you are both great. thank you, both. we have an important "hannity" monologue coming up. the real dangers of socialism. and victor davis hanson will weigh in. later, you won't believe who our villain of the day he is.

great leap forward. lenin promised brad, land, prosperity to the people of the former soviet union, resulted in a famine that killed 5 million people. india's first socialist prime minister vowed to end poverty. today, india's inequality wealth disparity, class divide is as dark as anywhere in the world. hugo chavez promising universal health care in venezuela. the country is now collapsing without even the most basic medical supplies. people are eating out of garbage trucks, as jorge ramos reported. mass power outages, millions of fleeing the country. we know in cuba, the castro regime stealing private property, killing their own people. suppressing all dissent. still committing vast humanng rights abuses to this day. bernie sanders, by the way, didn't seem too worried about it. he was singing the praises of cuba and the ussr since the 1980s. unfortunately the new democratic socialist extremists, they can't
stop with their wide, vague promises and p platitudes and bumper stickers, hoping that we'll forget about the past. how did keep your doctor, your plan, save money work out? think of that 1,000 times bigger. congress oh minna ocasio-cortez claims she's got it all figured out. take a look. >> when people hear the word socialism, they think, soviet union, cuba, venezuela. is that what you have in mind? >> [laughs] what we have in mind -- and my policies most closely resemble what we see in the u.k., norway, finland, sweden. >> sean: huge problem with a congress of men's analysis. those policies don't match these countries. for example, according to the taxun foundation, look at swede, norway, united kingdom. they have a lower effective corporate tax rate than the u.s. she wants that rate at 90%.
democrats want to raise it after historics tax cuts. they want to increase all of that too. by the way, no business in america can survive in that type of environment. she also says, don't worry about robots taking our jobs because it will give you more time for creating art. socialism has been a failure every time it's been tried. by the way, resulted in some of the biggest atrocities, human suffering and history. so don'tci fall for the false promises, scare tactics, about the world ending in 12 years. it's all part of their plan. gain more control of your life. you give up freedom for dependency and false promises. by the way, joining us and with reaction, the author of the best-selling book, "the case for trump," victor davis hanson. you are a great scholar. i love your writing so much because ofwr it. you could say so much more. but i gave is a tiny slice.
i want you to just expand on the dangers of what is being proposed here. >> we've always had socialists, sean. they've never succeeded because know from history that taking from somebody through government coercion destroys the initiative and it creates a laxative for the recipient. i think it's a little bit and even scarier than just a socialism because this is more french revolution maoist revolution. because what ocasio-cortez and her supporters are talking about is not just a 90% income tax on the top rates or a wealth tax or abolition of student debt, it's more inclusive. they don't want to just not build a wall, they want to tear the wall down and open the border. they don't just want abortion, they want abortion as permissible infanticide. they want a 16-year-old to vote in california. they want felons to vote in
florida, they want to abolishan i.c.e. and the electoral college. they are warring against the very traditions of america. it's not just take down confederate but tear down christopher columbus. where i work at stanford, they removed his name from the mall. when ocasio-cortez was starting to trash roosevelt and reagan, my god, without fdr, we wouldn't have had a country for her to come through. he defeated hitler. >> sean: my father -- as my mother and father said, these were desperate times. most people -- and i live this way for a big part of my life, and every thought -- i followed radio because it was my heart but ten years of my life in restaurants, ten years, labor, construction, and i was very blessed and fortunate. most people live in fear. they have maybe two months salary they can survive.
and this promise of everything free, and all you worry is taken away, it's appealing. but it's a false promise. i don't think people see this is totally unattainable or possible what they are saying. >> it is. it's also scary because the people who engineer these revolutions always believe that they are so morally pure that the ramifications of their own ideology don't apply to themselves. that is why ocasio-cortez has az chief of staff who is a multimillionaire. mark zuckerberg doesn't want a wall on the border but he wants one around his estate and the same thing with the green new deal won't be applicable. she wants to replay 19 1972, ts time woodstock nation is going to be the silent majority because she thinks it's changing demography, we've gone hard left. i don't think that is true. i think people, when he said the
totality of this revolutionary movement, they are going to say, i don't want to give up my lawn mower, jet travel, i really do -- i think they protect us. i don't think -- >> sean: i want to bring you back -- i think we need really so many people, those promises are so appealing, never have any fear again. but it won't work. the danger and history of it. victor davis hanson, we always love having you. thank you, sir. when we come back, update spray jussie smollett, massive, the biggest ever college as you mention bribery cases. alan dershowitz, judge alex herrera join us. our villain of the day, by the way, isn going to combat climae change. interesting. ♪

make nonathletes into star athletes. for example, the feds say actors lori loughlin and her fashion designer has been, mossimo giannulli, paid $500,000 to have their two daughters recruited to the university of southern california's crew team even though the girls had never road. actors felicity huffman allegedly played $15,000 to boor daughter's s.a.t. score and lo and behold, by cheating, it wen. she's out on $250,000 bond. it's unclear if lori loughlin has bonded out yet. both face felony mail fraud charges that could get them 20 years. those are the same charges that actor jussie smollett could face. today, accused of orchestrating a hate crime hoax, back in court on 16 felony counts of lying to authorities, but he is sticking to his story. saying he was attacked by two men who yelled racist and homophobic slurs and shouted "this maga country." during his next court appearance, cameras will be allowed, to which his attorney said, go to give it that way the public can see the evidence and lack w thereof.
>> sean: humorous reaction, former florida circuit court judge, host of "the whistle-blower," judge alex herrera. and harvard law professor alan dershowitz. he'll write an introduction to the mueller report after it's released for a professor, we begin with you. both of my kids are athletes and they started when they were seven. they traveled the country. they, and every one of their friends, they all got recruited to college for their sport. they all worked very hard. it is a grind. the kids that study, get 15, 1600s on the s.a.t.s or 35, 36 on a.c.t.s, i hear this. they can face 20 years in jail? >> i think the colleges have some responsibility here. they allowed coaches, unchecked, to decide who comes in, and it
was an invitation. it's a scandal. if you have one person who can make the decision to admit somebody, it's very easy to bribe one person. i think one of the reasons that harvard was not involved -- i'm proud o of having been at that institution -- because admissions are made by a committee.e. even if you bribe runner twobo people, you'd have to bribe seven or eight people for you -- >> sean: by the way, they don't give out that many scholarships. i'm pretty sure they don't give out -- >> they don't but they still admit students by the harvard basketball team has been doing very well, and not only athletically, but also academically. they don't give scholarships but they give preferences to athletes. they give preferences to cello players, to a great many people, give preferences based on race. one of the problems is that no one flunked out of college anymore, no one gets a d, ac,
and therefore, there is no checks, so you can get students who arere unqualified and they'l still sail through college with their b or b+. >> sean: i'm sure a supervisor, you see the difference. it's got to be very transparent. judge, i want to get your thoughts on this. do you think the penalty could be that severe? >> no. you are always going to hear the maximum because that is a number that gets people's attention. no judge is going to give the moms or dads 20 years in prison for this. is it a serious crime? absolutely. let's look at the distinction for the people who are saying, come on, what parent wouldn't go out of their way to try to get their son or daughter a job or into university? we are not talking about moms who called a sorority sister and said, could you write a letter of recommendation for my daughter or could you get here an interview with the college or a firm. ul are talking about parents, if the allegations are true, committed a serious, bribe people to get their children a
spot in the school, which kicked out somebody who really deserve that spot and in order to get the tax break for that, actually paid the money through this fund that is supposedly a charity so they could then take a tax deduction for the fraudulent payments that they made, the bribery payments they made, which is utterly outrageous. >> sean: you got to know if they played the sport before two seconds. >> if you are looking to arrestr felicity huffman at gunpoint, people with their guns drawn, just like the roger stone thing. come on. >> i agree with that. >> sean: thank you both. when we come back, our "villain of the day" doesn't want you to eat meat. we'll tell you why. don't let psoriatic arthritis take them away. taltz reduces joint pain and stiffness and helps stop the progression of joint damage. for people with moderate to severe psoriasis,
