tonight, by special arrangement live from new york city, taking over the 9:00 p.m. hour starting >> sean: how about the american people are smart. we let them decide what to listen to. you and rush -- all right. great show, tucker. hang in there.r we're doing -- we're all behind you. welcome to hannity. day two of the scandal that's now rocking the entire world of higher education. dozens of wealthy families, business executives, and hollywood celebrities caught ringing the system paying huge bribes fixing s.a.t. and a.c.t. scores. kids gain admission into some of the america's top universities. the man at the center is named
william rick singer. he's cooperating with federal authorities, apparently naming names. laurie laughlin appeared in court. she wasmo released on a $1 milln bond. the same as r. kelly. they were abuse caused -- accused of paying $1 million so their kids could get into stanford. they never played on the rowing team once. fellow actress was arrested at gun point during a raid by multiple fbi agents after she was accused of paying thousands of daughters to -- thousands of dollars to take her daughter's a.s.a.t. scores. students may get kicked out of the college. that should be the least of theirhe worries.
the parents will be facing up to 20 years behind bars. 50 people have been charge, including multiple college athletic coaches, a school administerrer, and they claim to have successfully serviced over 800 clients who paid him tens and tens of thousands and inso some cases millions of dollars. unbelievable. why? i guess foror status and braggig rights to tell their friends their privileged children got into the best schools, even though in reality they weren't good enough academically or athleteically to do so. they stumped on the futures of other people. there's only so many spots at each school. kids whoal had to work for everything, kids who put in the time academically or athletically talking about thousands and thousands of hours, studying, training, and earning their grades or a position in their sport.
kids who spent all of the time on and off of the field to better themselves and enrich the school with hair incredible athletic i ability. kids who played sports competitively. most kids now focus on one sport since about the time they are seven. i know. because i've lived through it. if found guilty, those in the scandal are the new faces of greed, corruption, and selfishness. even fake news cnn don lemon summed it up like this this. >> this is an american that can be deeply unfair. if you have money, you can buy anything. just about everything is for sale. including integrity for sale. a lot of people have reasons to believe them. system is rigged against them. this is what donald trump tapped into.
ine a lot of ways, guess what, e was right. >> sean: we're very, very excited about this tonight. elizabeth warren is weighing in on the controversy. at this time or a time like this, warren is exactly the moral campus america need. take a look. l >> as a parent how much sympathy would you have for the parents boiled in the alleged cheating scandal? >> zero. >> zero, okay. >> sean: she lied on her texas bar association and higher education, harvard telling them she was a native american, literally faking what her race and background was to gain an advantage. senator warren the poster child for fraud in education. she's not the only one facing claims of ramped hypocrisy. in hannity watch on the election, we have breakingak fews. remember when the left told america that all claims of
misconduct bare to be believed. no due process and no presumption of innocence necessary. democrats don't apply the same standard to themselves as we've learned tonight. a former aid to me too champion, kirsten gilebrand from new york was swept under the rug. 2016 candidate is still dealing with harassment. one of the aides were forced to resign, only after the payoff become public. this will be an issue in 2020. we'll have more on this later in the show. we turn now to a serious situation over america's skies tonight out of an an abundance of caution, the president
ordered all boeing 737 planes grounded if, light of new information from the ongoing investigation of the crash of ethiopian airlines. >> we're going to issuing an order of prohibition to ground all flights of the 737 max 8 and max 9. all airlines have been notified. they are agreeing with this. the safety of the american people and all people is our paramount concern. boeing is an incredible company. they are working very, very hard right now. hopefully they will quickly come up withy the answer. until they do, the planes are grounded. >> sean: the president is making the right move tonight. his number one priority has always beener protecting human life. he's pro-life. look what he's trying to do at the border. protect american citizens.
4,000 homicides, 30,000 sexual assaults, in two years and 100,000 violent assaults by illegal immigrants against americans.ag let me be more clear, i want to say this about boeing. boeing is a great american company. they have created some of the best, most reliable planes used worldwide. i want you to -- i want boeing to beat the french-owned air bus in the open market. i know they will. all americans should be rooting for boeing to get to the bottom of the serious situation, resolve it, and get back to producing some of the best aircraft the w world has ever seen. some of the fellow american citizens build the aircrafts. i'm going toir bring you the developments as they continue to unfold. first we turn to the hannity watchh on the deep state. more breaking news tonight. for the past few nights on the program we've been urging you to hang on, be patient, because justice is around the corner for all high-level government
bureaucrats that we've been telling you about for two years. those that were involved in rigging clinton's investigation to remain the democrat candidate, those trying to alter the impact on the election with russian lies they knew were lies but they disseminated them anyway all while persecuting the trump company for something he never did or his company never did. i'lls let congressman nunes gie you a preview of the attractions. >> we continue to work on the house intelligence committee. we will be making several criminal referrals. we hope that the justice department will take these up. >> when is that going to be happen? when are the criminal referrals going to be made? >> i guess guess sometime in thefection two, three, four weeks. >> sean: what is going to happen
should be major. it is not just senator nunes. senator lindsey graham has reopened the senate investigation into the fisa scandal. we stillal have the inspector general's report as it relates tona inspector general horowitz, and thanks to the courage of congressman collins of georgia the full transcript of the testimony. we learned yesterday and learning more today that it was obama's department of justice actually directing the fbi not to charge hillary clinton with the standard in the law which was gross negligence. according to letha paige we had multiple conversations about charging gross negligence and the justice department's assessment was that it was constitutionally vague, really? so they did not feel they could
bring that charge. they needed a new standard. congress pan radcliffe asked quote you are making it sound like it was the department that told you you are not going to charge gross negligence which is in the statute because the prosecutors were telling you we're notot going to. paige said that's correct. it was headed by attorney general lynch. yes, the same attorney general that met days before the decision on a tarmac in phoenix with bill clinton supposedly 45 minutes talking about grandchildren. this was in the final days of the investigation. the same person that asked james comey, don't call this an investigation. we call it a matter. really? that was an investigation. should have been. the same person who reports directly to barack obama. tonight we now add a very important new component to the
entire deep state issue. what did barack obama know and when did he know it? this now takes it straight to the former president and the oval office, barack obama. thanks to paige, we also know that the top fbi investigation, her boyfriend, viewed the investigation into trump russia collusion. that was the influence policy that we knew they talked about. and they join the russian investigation in order to build the case to impugn and potentially impeach the dually elected new president of the united states assuming that all their work in theni release of l of those lies and all of that propaganda and the dossier they disseminated to influence the american people before the vote in 2016. only problem here is there was collusion. it wasn't trump russian collusion. according to paige, the fbi had absolutely no evidence after they started an investigation after exonerating hillary.
it began in july of 2016. trump russia collusion. by the way, they went through may of the next year. they found no evidence. this is before bob mueller was ever appointed. they found nothing. here we are 665 days later into what is mueller's intensive investigation, still zero signs of collusion. rand paul said today this should never happen to an american president in the country. this is the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal that we've ever seen. also the conclusion of the house intel committee, devin nunes' committee. the bipartisan senate investigation. no russia collusion. for months some people they've been trying to tell me mueller is a good and honorable person. he served the country, sempri
fi. why would he hire a former collin toy lawyer? you have to wonderan if mueller has paid attention to all of the abuse of power. soon we'll know the answer. it is not a good sign that mueller appoints a guy like andrew wiseman. remember enron and the accounting case. tens of thousands of people lost their job. this guy withheld evidence. then he put four executives in jail for a full year. that was over turned by the fifth circuit. why would -- why would he ever be hired by mueller?
and today liberals aren't going to be happy until paul manafort dies in jail. he was sentenced to more prison time for the second case he was involved in. none of them, we now have two cases. nothing to do with collusion whatsoever. here's his attorney earlier tea. listen to this. nice little protesters and resistance in the background. >> jackson conceded that there was no evidence of any russian collusion in the case. that makes two courts. two courts have ruled no evidence and any collusion with russia. [chanting liar] >> part number two. very sad, very sad day for such a callous, harsh incentive that's totally unnecessary. >> sean: we should know the judge in the manafort case is pushing back saying the russia investigation is not yet over.
okay. if you know to know the best time that mueller is not going to find any russia collusion, then look no further than the cowardly schiff himself. schiff is busy on the network msnbc shifting the narratives when asked a simple question about his previous claims that he had evidence of collusion. look at my pal, my friend who uses my name to raise money. here's the cowardly schiff. >> two years ago until you point out until the present day there's ample evidence of collusion. whether that evidence amounts to proof beyond a reasonable doubt in criminal conspiracy, we would have to wait for bob mueller to determine it. iter is still my view the best evidence of the president's complicity as a general matter is the fact that he's been so deceptive about all of the context time after time.
>> sean: the cowardly schiff is trying to shift the conversation away from collusion. look at this. >> if there's insufficient evidence in the mueller report and we're not able to produce sufficient evidence in our own investigation, that ends the inquiry. there maybe grounds for removal for office and grounds for indictment after he leaves office that the congress discovers. one of the issues that we're looking at which at the mueller report may not cover is whether the russians were laundering money through the trump organization. our predominant concern is was the president and is the president compromised by a foreign power. >> sean: right. if there's no collusion, his committee is now going to spend -- threesp years in this. this started in july of 2016. they will just keep investigating trump until the end of time. we're going to investigate what he did in nursery school before it is said and done. we're hoping to find fig.
their rage is beyond the pail. this is dangerous to the country what they have done. this is an abuse of power. it will be exposed. a lot of credit to congressman collins in georgia. last week we got the orr testimony. and the fisa warrant itself. my question is simple: now do we have to go back right to hillary clinton if, in fact, the doj rigged c that from the get go? >> there's two questions the public deserves an answer to. did they short circuit the hillary clinton investigation because they wanted her to win, and they knew if they charged her she might lose? and did they start the russia investigation against trump as
an insurance policy in case he did win. those are the two questions that i'll try to get you answers to. >> sean: also mr. is michael horowitz and john hoover. >> right. there's three people going to look at this. horowitz is going to look at the fisa abuse. did the doj correctly get the warrant against carter paige. i think they corruptly got a warrant against carter paige. that should scare every person. you have the u.s. attorney acting ashe a quasi mueller when itit comes to all things doj and fbi. i think we need a special counsel to look at the potential crimes by the department of justice and fbi regarding the collin tin e-mail -- clinton investigation. the congress and me are going to call them all against the
committee. did they taint the clinton e-mail investigation because they are afraid if they indicted her she would lose an election they wanted her to win. you are going to get answers to that the best i can give them to you. >> sean: that was brought to a higher level. does she need her text and e-mails? does she need to be put under oath? whatat information did she giveo the former president of the united states? what did obama know and when did he know it as to all of this. >> here's the question that i've got: why would you decide not to charge her before you even talk to her? the point is it seems to me they were going to make sure it didn't go too far. that the department of justice underh loretta lynch was never going to let the e-mail investigation go too far. before they talked to her, apparently they decided not to charge her.
when they did talk to her, they talked to her without being under oath. they gave a lot of people immunity in the clinton e-mail investigation for no good reason. what i think happened. i think the clinton e-mail investigation was short circuited because they didn't want to compromise her ability to win the election. they started the beginning of the russian investigation before he won as an insurance policy in case he did win. >> sean: here's another problem. this is why releasing the fisa which i believe, -- i don't know why the president hasn't signed off. i guessss that's forthcoming. >> he might. >> sean: i hope he did. in bruce orr's testimony, we thought we knew. now we know. he warned everybody in 2016. hillary paid for it. it is tainted. nobody hasor verified it. nobody has corroborated it.
christopher steele hates donald trump and has an agenda. christopher steele if anyone said they verified it, we know it is not true. steele in c great britain said e didn't know if it was true himself. they couldn't have verified it. but it used it for fisa warrants. >> it goes deeper than that. bruce is telling the head of the investigation you can't rely on the dossier because the guy who hated -- guy who created it hates trump.d they asked for a warrant for different occasions. here's what paige said, without the dossier, we would have never gotten the warrant. >> sean: mckay said that? >> it gets worse. after trump wins, comey gives him a copy of the dossier saying we want you to know this is out there. we can't verify any of it. it is the same document they
gave to the court under oath. >> sean: comey signed off on the dossier and the warrant in october 2016 before donald trump was sworn in january 2017. it is unverified. >> how could that be? we don't know if it is true or not. >> sean: because they were setting him up. >> because they were maybe setting him up. >> sean: thank you, senator. when we come back, we have breaking news. what congressman ocasio-cortez did. laura trump weighs in on the democrats impeachment of sessions. bill de blasio doesn't like me. and he said so. straight ahead.
>> sean: the democratic socialist party won't let o the facts get in the way of anything. congresswoman ocasio-cortez was questioning the ceo about migrant detention centers. >> mr. sloan, why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with. >> i don't know how to answer that question, because we weren't. >> so when finance -- you were -- >> i'm not familiar with the specific assertion that you are making. but we weren't directly involved that. >> sean: in addition to the new open borders and the new green deal no cows, planes, cars, oil,
or gas, the new face of the left doesn't want youou to worry abot having to work again. i'm not making it. take a look. >> we should not be haunted by being automated out of work. whether it is a tax rate or distributing wealth that's created by automation. if we talk -- if we approach solutions to the system and start entertaining ideas like that, we should be excited about automation because of what it could is more time educating ourselves, more time in art, more time in the sciences, more time focused on invention, more time going to space, more time enjoying the world we live in. >> sean: don't worry about your job and being automated autoof it. it will give you more time to create art.f
are you trying to take over my job? what's the podcast? >> it is just effort -- >> sean: is it video or audio? >> once a week. we just released one on julius caesar. i don't think we're a threat to your day job. i know how hard you work. >> sean: you filled in my show in years gone by. you used to host in radio stations in atlanta all the time. >> i want to tell everybody who is watching i have tried to do what you do. i admire you and rush. you guys spend so many hours preparing that it is real work. >> sean: who -- everyone has one good talk show. what are you going to do on day 500? that's what i always say to people. let me -- so here we have the new green deal. no planes, no cars, no oil, no
gas. everything is free. and no cows. that bothers me. she says accused the wells fargo of caging children. don't worry about being automated out of your job. does that mean we'll have trobotic socialist that utter te same words every day because that's what democrats do? t>> you know, i've been tryingo understand how to put as a historian in context what we are watching. in a formal -- normal, healthy society, alexandria would be seen as the interesting graduate student who had gotten into some college with a good student loan, hung out, smoked some grass, drank some beer, had a good time, once read half of a book, knows nothing, and nobody would take her seriously. in a healthy society she would
be a joke. she doesn't know anything. her viewsw are based on whatevr random thought comes in that morning, and her proposals are beyond silly. she couldn't possibly defend her proposal. i would love to debate her at any college campus in the country. because i don't think she could possibly defend if we're allowed to stick to facts. if all we're going to do is scream and set up deeply emotional, heartfelt symbolism, she will be great. but if you are talking about actually running something and getting something done, leaving a country, i think she's totally in a different world. >> sean: you are a great historian at heart. i shared history with you seeing the night you become speaker at your event. and which was an honor in my life. m socialism has never worked. but you are going to get free college, free k-12, free
daycare, free health care, but you can't buy your own insurance. no more oil and gas. everything is going to be great. free retirement whether you are willing to work. it is all -- it offers to take away all fears of people as a historian it worked out well. this has been tried before. >> you know, i think it would be useful to take up a fund to ask aoc if they could go to venezuela and t zimbabwe, and go down and try to find a modern car in cuba. these are people who operate out of an emotional kind of self-righteous passion with no knowledge. not only does socialism not work, it leads you to a dictatorship, it leads you to powerful people like modero stealing from the people. look what's happening in venezuela. >> sean: cuba. >> people have no answer. none. they believe in mythology.
they think cuba is the wonderful paradice, except cubans can't afford to buy a car and most cars were made before 1958. >> sean: you have a candidate supporting it and about 100 people in washington supporting it. that's a high number considering the magnitude of students stupidity that's involved in this. >> i think the great responsibility is to so decisively communicate the falsehoods by the election of 2020 it is impossible to compete as a socialist. that's our responsibility. that's our challenge. rwe know they are nuts. our job is to prove it to the country. >> sean: by the way, just for the record, we don't know if aoc
ever smoked weed. a lot of liberals now care about late-term abortion, during-birth abortion, and afterbirth abortion, and yes they want to legalize weed. a lot of liberals do. i don't think it is a good idea. good to seeee you. i appreciate it. the ladies of "the view" had unkind words about the first lady again. big new update on the celebrity college admission scandal. sarah carter and lara logan will be here straight ahead. ♪ it is such a good time to kiss ♪
fantasies. nothing few for the democrats. they've been shouting this for over two straight years with their friends in the media. >> i rise today, mr. speaker, to call for the impeachment of the president of the united states of america. >> trump would like to redefine the law the way he wants to redefine it, but he's wrong. i believe he should be impeached. i do believe that. >> we have learned there's evident that the president of the united states engaged in a felony to obtain the office of president. >> the constitution would not be any clearer. impeachment is the appropriate remedy for bribery, for tree son, for high crimes and misdemeanors. >> someone said momma loves you. we don't win. i said baby, they don't. we're going to go in there and [bleep] >> every single colleague of mine agreed there's impeachment
offenses. >> sean: here's the action from the senior advisor, laura trump is with us. how are you? >> hey, sean. it is great to be with you. >> it never ends. it is non-stop. we know it was raised by the same people that covered for hillary. then we see the non-stop attacks on your family and now talks of impeachment. forget that we're breaking record after record. it has to get tiresome for the family at some point. >> it gets tiresome. i always say at the end of the day, the president, all of us, the campaign, will be vindicated. the truth comes out at the end. and i think the democrats right now are showing how scared they are with the fact that the mueller report is going to be released soon. they are frantic to find
something else to throw at the president to throw at anybody close to him. that's why you saw the 81 subpoenas last week. so ridiculous. people should be shocked and appalled by this in our country. this is not how it is supposed to work. just because you are still upset over an election that happened two and a half years ago, you shouldn't be allowed to ruin people's lives like this. we have full confidence that at the end of the day the right thing happens. we know the president, the campaign, nobody has done anything wrong here. >> sean: let's look at the new democratic party and the wild swing to the left. this new green deal, for example, which would destroy the greatest wealth-creating system ever and eliminate planes and cows and cars and automatics and the way we know them, and no oil and gas. >> sean, it will only cost every
family in the country $600,000 a piece. $90 trillion is the pies tag on this. i don't think people can seriously get behind this stuff. i wonder who gave the democrats the shovel and told them to start digging. this stuff seems so crazy and so out of touch with anything day-to-day. you know what they care about? keeping the country safe and making sure they can send their kids to the school, and making sure they have enough money for mortgage and rent. guess who is delivers? president trump? >> sean: what about the family? another attack? >> "the view" ladies can't help themselves. >> sean: if a republican conservative attacks a woman the way they have attacked you, ivanka, melania, and baron, the
young kid. here we have a person sticking up for his wife. which was the right thing to do. i've met her. >> melania never gets enough credit. i thought the attack today and the ridiculous narrative that "the view" was trying to spin was one of the more egregious that they've done. look at the reason that the president and first lady were in obama. they were there to visit with people who have lost all of their family membered. devastated by the series of tornadoes in alabama. the president and first lady talked about it on friday with me. they told me some stories they ever never forget. they were down there mourning. here you have the view trying to say that melania has a body double. are you serious?
they will look for anything. of course she carries herself with grace and dignity. they will continue to go down the gutter. >> sean: great to see you. congrats on your little guy. >> thank you. thank you so much. >> sean: trace gallagher when we come back. and sarah carter will react. our villain of the day today, i'm going to tell you bill de blasio, the mayor of new york, attacking me. i'll tell you why coming up. when we started our business
we were paying an arm and a leg for postage. i remember setting up shipstation. one or two clicks and everything was up and running. i was printing out labels and saving money. shipstation saves us so much time. it makes it really easy and seamless. pick an order, print everything you need, slap the label onto the box, and it's ready to go. our costs for shipping were cut in half. just like that. shipstation. the #1 choice of online sellers.
scamming scandal, gallagher trace. >> sean, a judge agreed to release actress lori loughlin. she and her husband are charged with bribing the college to accept their daughters. they say the cheating scheme will be denied and those in school will be released. meaning her daughter could be kicked out of usc. records for the charity of rick singer, he's the ring leader show payments of $338,000 to the nyu athlete athletic department, $546,000 to the university of texas athletic department, and $100,000 to princbill enterprise that happens tore share the same address as ucla's former soccer
coach. the pay to not play has resulted in coaches being fired or suspended at usc, stanford, wake forest, university of texas, yale, and ucla among others. those who cheated to inflate s.a.t. and a.c.t. scores are also being rounded up. >> sean: unbelievable. thank you so much. trace gallagher. sarah carter, i happen to be at an age that i have young kids. all of my daughter's friends are going to recruited. since the time they are eight they've traveled the country and theve world. then you take a picture of your kid and put it on an athlete when the kid has never played the support -- sport or the test
scandal. your thoughts? >> you know, sean, when i look at the breaks newsing i approach it as a journalist. what do we know? then i start to ask questions. one is about the role of charity. that's interesting because it is something that i've seen come up in other stories and scandals; right? this is a very well used method of hiding money or disguiding money. that's very interesting to me. that aspect of this is particularly interesting. then, of course, i really wonder as a journalist, my other question is how big is this? who are the other people in the colleges that knewth about this? and how far does this extend?
unfortunately, you know, the next question for me is i know the law enforcement has indicated many of the kids didn't know what their parents were doing. what about the t ones who did? what about the ones who were given more time to take a test when they didn't have a learning disability? what about the ones who were given the answers to an s.a.t. test or, you know, who knew that someone else was taking the test for them. if those things did happen which, you know, the fbi has said they did, then it raises thee question as to whether or not those children will be charged. there are other college students who have been charged with other crimes in the past. once they sign the forms, there's a question of responsibility and consequences there.
>> that's right. i agree. you know as a parent, sean, these parents did no favors to their children. what they did was just set them up for failure. it also told them that they weren't worth it. that they -- you know, working hard wasn't necessary. they weren't good enough to actually make it. i t think there's a new frustration around the country with each looking at this and saying we worked so hard. it was completely rigged. it is rigged for people who had the money and who had the access. like lara said, i wonder how many more of these establishments like william singer had. >> sean: let me ask you both about legacy? if mom and dad and grandma and grandpa gave enough money, they helped the kids all the time. >> that's true. not just legacy.
also politics. there are people so famous that their children walk into any college and don't get there on their own merit. this is part of the much bigger system of privilege and favor with college kids all over the country listening to the story and they are going, yeah, like everybody knows this; right? true. this k has been going on for so long. >> i don't think we're going to be able to fix everything; right? that's just a part of the human makeup. we know things like this happen. we know things like legacies happen or people get in because their families have a particular name or particulare status. i think what is so significant here is what the fbi did. the fbi is holding these people accountable. >> sean: then you could pass -- if you've worked hard academically and worked hard to enrich the school with some athletic ability or you don't. if you need to -- you'll find out this in two seconds if the kids played the border or if the
>> sean: bill de blasio tweeting about meatless mondays. the news will continue. there she is. laura ingraham standing by. >> i'm laura ingraham. hegr says americans will never have faith in the united states government until the fbi's handling of the hillary clinton e-mail probe is wallly investigated. i mean really investigated for obstruction of justice. former nypd commissioner, and if we believe comedy is dead in the age of trump. dolly parton taking on elizabeth warren. just moments away, counselor to the presidentnd kelly ann
