2:00 pm
very much. we appreciate your coming on and what you had to tell us today was really impressive. folks, i will be back on tomorrow in fox business at 2:00 p.m. catch "making money." the market has been in some turmoil. i'll try to turn it around. ♪ >> greg: high, hi, i'm greg gutfeld with jesse watters, juan williams, dana perino. "the five." someone is having a good week and it's only monday. >> there was no collusion with russia. there was no obstruction, none whatsoever. and it was a complete and total exoneration. this was an illegal takedown that failed. and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at the other side.
2:01 pm
>> greg: thank god, the media saw this coming. can i hear a "if true." >> if true, federal investigators have evidenced the president of the united states committed a serious crime and potentially impeachable offense. >> confirming part of the still do dossier. >> could tip the election in donald trump's favor. if that is true, it's hidden encumbrance of the big deal. >> how do you explain the man afford allegations? >> there was no collusion on his part? >> that may be the most suspicious denial we've heard. >> i think they are shocked that the noose is tightening. >> greg: if true. about collusion. >> if the president has insisted from the start there was no collusion. >> this vindicates the
2:02 pm
president. >> smoke about russian collusion but no fire. >> 500 search warrants. found no evidence of conspiracy by donald trump or anyone around him. it's a huge deal and a huge won for the president. >> greg: 911, i would like to report a death. it's the mainstream media finally choking on their own lives. that should be a victory lap but if i was the president i would be ticked off. despite the relief indication brings, it won't undo the harm fall crap. if true, sources say, jumped -- junk terms. we had to play along because skepticism was portrayed by the media as aiding trump. at cnn, they wonder, has a russia coverage helped or hurt?
2:03 pm
it's like a sloppy drunk wondering if there drinking hurt their reputation. especially when reporters pronounce the story worse than watergate. >> what we are watching the trump presidency is worse than watergate. >> i've said before that what we are seeing is worse than watergate because in watergate, the system worked. >> greg: the only thing worse than watergate wasn't there lie that it was worse than watergate. it wasn't commentators like us who push this but so-called analysts reporters and experts. when trump said fake news was the end of year people, but if they prove him right. it was about you. dividing us, conflict as a business model. smollett, kavanaugh, covington. collusion, they hit skeet coming in the media never learns. the steele dossier was faked, the leaks faked, fisa system
2:04 pm
abused. it is not trump that russia's name to. it's a bunch of useful idiots called the press. jesse, i'm going to hand over the rest of the show to you and i'm going to the bar to celebrate. >> jesse: i will be right there with you. last night felt like election night all over again. no collusion, no obstruction. juan, you don't have to say anything. i accept your apology. [laughter] >> juan: i should bring you party hats. >> greg: i would wear it. >> jesse: may be a cake and putin can jump out of it. >> juan: that's exactly right. >> jesse: knockout punch to the mainstream media. i don't think they're ever going to recover. their credibility is shot. millions of americans will never take them seriously again. they booked their shows full of fools. a roster of fools. they need to let their contracts expire and put them out to pasture. it was a bunch who cried wolf. there's a big shift in the
2:05 pm
media. cnn, msnbc -- they dug their own graves. their ratings are going to soften and fox news ratings will take a pop and we have the story right from the jump. it wasn't just opinion people. the hard news site. catherine herridge, bret baier, john roberts. we were the only ones who follow the fisa abuse, the dossier, peter strzok and all those text messages. we followed the truth and we were suspicious and we were proven right. the president, as you said called the media fake news because they gave aid and comfort to the enemy. it wasn't donald trump who was the traitor. the traders were inside our own government and vladimir putin hy thanks, democrats. you basically made russia look stronger and divided the countr country. 44% say that trump campaign colluded with russia. 52% think trump tried to
2:06 pm
interfere with the mueller investigation. flat out not true. if you criticize the media and so they were fake news, they sent oh, my gosh, you're attacking the first amendment. you're attacking the freedom of the press. greg, permission to make an analogy. >> greg: sure. >> jesse: the media is the dossier. the media is fake smears bought and paid for by the democratic party, and so instead of doing an autopsy on themselves, they are saying trump has showed little interest in healing our national unity. >> greg: they are pivoting. martha, will the media ever reflect on these mistakes they are making and follow our lead to an example as objective? [laughter] >> martha: from what we've seen so far, there doesn't seem to be much capitulation, much understanding about what just happened. what they have just witnessed. they've immediately spent most of the day -- i was watching other channels in my office throughout the day, most of it
2:07 pm
on this little opening for obstruction of justice. this potential that may be there is some avenue for recovery that perhaps there was obstruction of justice. the thing that strikes me is if anyone thinks that the new attorney general release this summary without a very clear feeling that it accurately reflected what was in the larger report that they are all screaming for full disclosure on and i think we all want to see it. of course and want to see it. i think they may turn out to be sadly mistaken. >> greg: i love watching them shove brian stelter through that small hole of obstruction. all right, juan. i know it's hard for you. first you defeat isis on friday, collusion gone, michael avenatti's in prison. it's got to kill you. [laughter] >> juan: it's unbelievable. it's like they have built the wall. the chinese deal is done. get out of here. >> greg: that's tomorrow.
2:08 pm
>> juan: it is good news. first of all, i think it's good news that the president was not found to have conspired in the way. it's good news that robert mueller was able to conduct a nonpartisan probe and come to conclusions that i think most of the american people can trust. i think the bad news on that front is he confirmed russia interfered in the 2016 election to help donald trump and that from what we know, trump, you know, well, if that's happening, he didn't tell the fbi. a kind of welcomed it. none of the people directly around ten was found to be in conspiracy with the russians. >> martha: the fbi didn't tell him they knew that was happening. >> juan: they suspected it. >> martha: they kept him from knowing that so how would he have done anything to stop it? >> juan: he could've acknowledged that he had meetings here at trump tower. his son is having meetings with russian officials. he then goes on -- he says -- >> jesse: the whole meeting looks like a set up at this
2:09 pm
point. >> juan: he welcomed russian officials into his campaign office and then secondly he standing there next to vladimir putin and says american intelligence has had russia interfered. i believe you, not my intelligence officials. or how about -- >> martha: that was not a great moments. >> juan: in the business about i wasn't doing any business with russia during the campaign. obviously we know that's not true. >> greg: we know that but i want to bring damien. dana, these experts have so much egg on their face, they could open a denny's. but as jesse said, they will be invited on shows to pontificate because they express the perfect anti-trump sentiment so you will still see david fromm and bill kristol. >> dana: the contortions will be interesting to watch over the next bit. still could be true, to martha's point. if we get that document, it will be interesting to me to say, member at after the 2016
2:10 pm
election, reporters went on the road to figure out how did we get it wrong and how did we miss it? now books have been written about it, how did they the meds it? from a personal anecdote, going back to the special prosecutor of the valerie plame issue with karl rove, he knew that he was going to be -- not going to be indicted but he wasn't allowed to say anything. the stress and the agony what you put people through with special prosecutors. >> juan: i hope we agree that the report should be released because i think republicans and democrats want to see it. get it out there. >> greg: we are going to talk about this some more. it's a day of reckoning for everyone. michael avenatti arrested. we'll have details coming up on that, plus... >> the reality is there is ample evidence of collusion in plain sight and it has been for very long time. >> greg: democrats crying collusion for two years with nothing to show for it.

♪ >> here you have a president who i can tell you and guarantee you is in collusion with the russians to undermine our democracy. >> the evidence is pretty clear that there was collusion between the trump campaign and the russians. >> you can see evidence in plain sight on the issue of collusion, pretty compelling evidence. >> dana: despite top democrats insisting there was collusion, the mueller investigation found no such evidence. now president trump's attorney rudy giuliani is calling on democrats to apologize for
2:16 pm
pushing the narrative. counselor to the president kellyanne conway taking it a step further, saying that the chairman of the house intelligence committee, adam schiff, should resign. >> adam schiff should resign. he has no right, someone who's been telling a lie day after day after day unchallenged. unchallenged and not under oath. somebody should have put him under oath and said do you have evidence? where is it? >> dana: democrats not letting up. pointing fingers, threatening subpoenas unpromising it's not the end. >> these conclusions raise more questions than they answer. we will ask the attorney general to testify the house judiciary committee. we will demand the release of the full report. >> there is significant evidence of collusion and we have set that out time and time again. >> i trust in his prosecutorial judgment but that doesn't mean there isn't compelling and incriminating evidence that should be shared with the american people. >> he's appointed by trump. he's not elected by the people and you can put very little credence in what he sang. he is a trump appointee put into
2:17 pm
protect trump. that's why trump put him in. >> dana: martha, i want to ask you two things. house minority leader kevin mccarthy today also echoed what kellyanne kellyanne conwad that schiff should step down from the intelligence committee and then the second piece, bill barr, stellar reputation in d.c., just confirmed by the united states senate. now public enemy number one. let me start with that. >> martha: it seems we are at a point in history where you're not allowed to have integrity. if you -- everyone said when bill barr was chosen, he's a good guy. both sides pretty much agreed it was not going to be a difficult confirmation process for him. the vote was 52-45 or something like that. there were three democrats who crossed over and voted to approve bill barr. but now that he wrote this letter, suddenly he's an enemy. suddenly he's in the trump campaign. the same thing happen with robert mueller. everyone he said he was going to be someone who would handle this
2:18 pm
with integrity. that went right out the window as soon as the little bits that we have on their part came out. he also found in the survey that came out recently that more than 50.6% of the american people thought it was a witch hunt. the president called it a witch hunt from the beginning. people like trey gowdy and lindsey graham said that mueller would do his job well and he would have integrity. i think it would be good if we can live in an environment where was okay for someone to be trusted from both sides and respect the document they put outcome as bill barr has done here. with regard to adam schiff, again, trey gowdy from the very beginning said adam schiff claims he has evidence of collusion. he needs to come forward and explain why he knows something that apparently didn't come forward in any of these documents. yes, he needs to stand by those words and explain what he was talking about. >> juan: let me say i would make a clean break between bill barr and robert miller.
2:19 pm
i don't think there was much question about bob miller's integrity, to my mind anyway. i think the person who is going after new ruler was donald trump who was talking about witch hunts. >> martha: i said that. >> juan: i haven't heard but i'm interested if people are going after robert mueller, i think the question for mueller is we know a lot of things that would indicate a pattern of cooperation if not conspiracy but you apparently said it wasn't sufficient. we'd like to know why you came to that conclusion. >> martha: they had 2800 subpoenas. >> juan: right. >> martha: they will release, i'm confident, as much of the report as they can but at some point to people who respect bob mueller and people who respect bill barr respect their findings? >> juan: he wrote that letter to say, bill barr, i think the president has tremendous executive power. >> dana: let me move on to one
2:20 pm
other thing. greg, you had the tweet of all tweets last night. i think we have the james comey tweet. james comey has a picture -- surrounded by trees. so many questions. you said. >> greg: i said he's obviously looking for hillary. >> dana: she was out walking in the woods. >> greg: exactly. i don't even remember doing tha that. i was in a twitter flurry last night. i keep thinking, the interesting -- when we get past all this stuff, we have to address the mechanism that allows for half the people to believe in one thing in the other half not to. so there's these coincidences and confirmation bias. they all kind of crisscross. we need like shrinks. we need shrinks to commit and show people that a lot of this is delusional. how do half the country think that we have a russian plant in the white house? how did that happen? when you think about how idiotic
2:21 pm
that is, people at msnbc were leading with that. >> dana: we are going to talk in the d block about the obama administration went and what they did or did not know. i think that's where the story goes next. last word to you, jesse. lindsey graham, senate judiciary chairman said to comey he will see him soon. >> jesse: and lindsey graham is going to haul a bunch of these people up in front of the senate and have them testify and i think that will be healthy for our democracy. i don't understand why democrats are not happy that there's not a traitor in the white house. if you look at cnn, it looks like i funeral. >> greg: did you ever see "intervention." they are like the junkie who refuses they have a problem. >> jesse: this is why people hate washington, d.c. for two years, we investigate something no one cares about and at the end of two years when there's nothing there, and it has nothing to do with jobs or health care, they say this is just the beginning of the investigation and we are just getting started.
2:22 pm

♪ >> jesse: president trump kicking off his victory tour after the mueller report came back with no collusion and no obstruction. many thought this issue was going to be the center of the 2020 election for democrats, but it looks like now they'll have to change this tune. >> he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time. >> i think he has aligned himself with the enemy, with putin. believe it qualifies for impeachment. speak of the constitution could not be clear. impeachment is the appropriate remedy for bribery, treason, high crimes and misdemeanors. speak of the writing is on the wall. the walls are closing in and this is the beginning of the end
2:27 pm
for the trump administration. >> we are going to go in there and we are going to [bleep]. >> jesse: all the democrat 2020 hopefuls could talk about this weekend was demanding that the entire mueller report be released to the public. they can't release the whole thing. should the democrats get off this impeachment thing and focus on policy? >> juan: i think this does push away from impeachment. but jesse, i'm not sure that's a good thing for president trump. i think with impeachment, as we said at this table, a lot of times there is blowback from the public. maybe you're overreaching. wire was spending so much time? now i think the democratic base focus is going to be on politics and the 2020 election. i think a lot of that kind of energy, the activism that might have attended pushing congress congress, pelosi has said he's not worth it, in her words. so now i think a lot of that energy goes right back to the
2:28 pm
election. i think it opens the door to people saying listen, we have so many questions. by the way, you say that the mueller report cleared him of conspiracy and obstruction. it did not. it cleared him of conspiracy but it left obstruction to the attorney general barr, as martha was saying. we don't know why he decided against -- >> jesse: he decided not to -- >> juan: i think everybody this table wants to see the report. >> jesse: as much as we can. the president is extremely vindicated. does he have a sledgehammer to attack democrats with, to say the stuff they've been saying has been a lie. why believe them with anything else? >> martha: that becomes they democrats' problem. they're going to continue these investigations on the hill. this is not case closed. they have put their eggs in that basket. they're going to continue to pursue these investigations i
2:29 pm
think it will be interesting to see whether or not that's a plausible argument for voters. if that's what they want to see. do they really want to see all the resources of the american government continue to try to go after the president or were they like to see both sides be able to sort of be clear of this and get back to the business at hand of the country? >> jesse: i wonder how much the democratic basis is still thirsty for this type of action. >> dana: i think if you're a 2020 candidate, the first and you should do -- the first thing you should do is get off twitter. they did that wisconsin focus group. they know nothing about the green new deal. they don't want medicare for all. they don't know anything about russia collusion. they want to talk about the issues that are bothering them and the issues they are worried about. i'm looking to see, is there a democratic candidate on the list now or perhaps one that says he's going to announce in april, that would be joe biden.
2:30 pm
is there anyone who's going to stand up and say that's it? no more. i'm going to tell you why i have a better plan for america than he does. i'm not going to talk about this anymore. if you can fully prove it, it would probably help save the democratic party. >> jesse: that's a good point but i don't think the president is going to allow them to privette. on thursday he's going to do a big rally in michigan where he's definitely going to spike the football. >> greg: i hope he does it in a way that's fun. i don't know. why would he be listening to me. i wonder where rick wilson is at this point. wasn't he pushing avenatti as a potential candidate. so avenatti -- i haven't seen him. kirsten gillibrand spoke yesterday. >> dana: terrible timing. >> greg: she spoke in front of the trump hotel, thinking it was going to be a good idea, except
2:31 pm
it's happening as this historic victory is taking place and she is in the shadow of a giant beautiful building created by her adversary, donald trump who is celebrating one of the best historic victories. >> dana: she said that he's worse than richard nixon and an hour and half later we got the barr letter. the timing is tough. >> jesse: i am just trying to get some ranch, right? wall-to-wall coverage this weekend of the mueller report but one big detail was the finding that would over -- that was overlooked. we will tell you what that is next. i can't believe it. that there's a lobster in our hot tub? lobster: oh, you guys. there's a jet! oh...i needed this. no, i can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on our car insurance with geico. we could have been doing this a long time ago. so, you guys staying at the hotel? yeah, we just got married. oh ho-ho! congratulations!

and the detail i can no longer be ignored here is that it did happen during the obama administration and while loretta lynch ran the justice department and james comey was leading the fbi. of course john brennan at cia. let's not forget when the former director basically admitted that it was happening and that they did nothing to investigate or to stop it. watch this. >> what makes you believe he has more indictments? >> because he hasn't addressed the issues related to criminal conspiracy as well as any individual -- criminal investigation involving the russians? that's an area that you know something about. that investigation was developing while you were still on the job. >> it was, in terms of looking at was going on with the russians and whether or not u.s. persons were actively colluding, cooperating, involved in a conspiracy or not. if there's going to be any

member -- >> at that stage to believe that there would -- that that would result in indictments one investigated? speak i thought it was going to be individuals who were going to have issues with the department of justice. >> martha: so what do they do about it? what was their investigation? what are they talk to? what an loretta lynch think about it? what did jim comey think about it? >> jesse: barack obama likes to say that he had a scandal free administration. it looks like he had the most corrupt administration since richard nixon. i don't know why the media isn't calling barack obama's office and asking for comment after this entire charade has been exposed. john brennan ran point on the whole thing. they want to hill her in there. he wanted to keep his job as cia director and obama wanted a third term. it was about legacy for him. lindsey graham said you need a second special counsel to bring up everybody and investigate

brennan and clapper and mccabe. samantha power and the unmasking. yeats, who set up the sting in the office of michael flynn. now it looks like papadopoulos who allegedly started this thing, never even spoke to a russian. he spoke to two cia agents on an obama ambassador who was a clinton donor. they need to declassify as much they can. the 302s, feiss applications, everything needs to get out there. the left says they want transparency on barr and i want transparency in this investigation. the president is always criticized for not believing the intel people. the intel people under barack obama were all dead wrong. and worse they were dead wrong or they were trying to frame him. which one was it? >> martha: ari fleischer said today he thought this kind of investigation and the beginnings of it with sally yates, as jesse mentioned, would never happen without the knowledge of the president. do you agree?
2:39 pm
>> dana: no, not necessarily. not to disagree with ari fleischer of course. i don't know. i think there's times when there's a bright line and sometimes -- i don't know how present he was in all of this, president obama. how much did he care? there's very few things that unite silicon valley democrats and trump supporters but frustration with barack obama's administration on not raising a flag on russian interference. they know for a while it was happening and then we hear that president obama in that meeting with putin in september of 2016 leans over and says knock it off. we know what's happening. america didn't know. we know now. one of the things that's amazing, to jesse's point about scandal, 2016's election integrity was barack obama's responsibility. we heard in the the. for barr letter, that they were trying to do it. the integrity of the 2020 election is president trump's
2:40 pm
responsibility. >> martha: if they wanted to sow discord, they must be sitting back and thinking awesome job, everybody. we have tied these people up in knots for two years. let's see if we can do it again in 2020. i want to play this from john brennan today. we have shown how out there on the slim john brennan was, so when asked to respond to everything today, here's what he said. >> i think i suspected there was more than there actually was. i am relieved it's been determined there was not a criminal conspiracy with the russian government over our election. >> martha: you can only see him from here up so i'm enough you can see the tail between his legs. wow. >> juan: i disagree because i think we have a record and i think robert mueller was able to confirm 100 meetings between trump officials and russians. we have 26 russians indicted,

2:42 pm
>> greg: i don't have many thoughts. i'm just happy. i had a natural buzz from this vindication. i think it's interesting that the people who pushed the story the most warrant us. we always -- it's the commentators in the opinion people who get the bad rap that we are like not dealing in facts. we are dealing in conversation, that's our job. the analysts, the brennans, the people we put on pedestals who pushed this. not us chuckle heads. we're just having a conversation but everybody, carl bernsteins of the world, the john brennans of the world, the investigative reporters that lied to us. those are the people that caused this problem. it disgusts me, i'll tell you. >> martha: brennan was the cia director and he suggested the interview i know these things because i know these things. i have been sidetracked an end then this morning he says it's possible i got some bad

the unnamed coconspirator was a analyst for cnn. i think it looks pretty bad. cnn, i think they're going to close up shop. i'm not sure. i've heard that. i'm kidding. my favorite part, stormy daniels has expressed regret over her hiring of avenatti but she never really regretted her decisions in porn, so in her mind, hooking up with him was worse than her triple x career. >> juan: dana, he's also charged with defrauding a bank in mississippi by fraudulent tax return so he could get loans for a struggling law firm. >> dana: he is a pathetic piece of scum. when you are on a book with the daily briefing" and you brought up the kavanaugh thing, it wasn't at the top of my mind when i saw this. also i have to hand it to nike. they saw this and they said if

you watch the press conference, they called the justice department and started working with him and basically they are saying speak into this microphone and tell us exactly what you want to do and he does it. i would say prosecutors, they do not take kindly to lawyers who are liars. he's really going to be in trouble. >> jesse: the action in the southern district everybody's talking about. >> dana: now we love the southern district of new york. >> juan: the last time i heard about avenatti was he had some kind of tape on r. kelly. now i don't know what to believe. >> jesse: that are not that tape is getting out now. think about it, kavanaugh's on the supreme court. avenatti is in jail. stormy has to pay trump's legal fees and there is no collusion. what a great country. he, he's a con artist. cnn hitched their wagon to a con artist like they did with smollett and with christopher steele and it blew up in their face. i believe i'm on tape a couple

months ago saying that avenatti was going to be bankrupt or imprison on both. i would just like to pat myself on the back. >> martha: so he's not running for president anymore? >> greg: rick wilson was saying he was going to help them become president. >> martha: when you look at the big picture, i don't think a lot of people are going to remember the michael avenatti moment, despite the fact that he was on television 108 times. there was a moment where you could not look up at any of the other cable news channels on nazi michael avenatti spouting what we now know was an enormous amount of you know what. he attached himself to every story he could, from stormy daniels to the kavanaugh story where he brought forward those two women, one of whom appeared to be making up stories as she went along. >> greg: accusing him of staff staff. >> martha: stormy daniels says she never really liked him from the beginning. >> juan: she did cut ties with

him. so it's like, it's not necessarily the case that stormy was bogus. it's just that avenatti may have overhyped it? >> martha: the cases he brought on her behalf fell apart. in terms of going after the president. he swore up and down that he had the evidence that was going to make president trump look the worst of all from any of this. you know, like i said, he's going to be a very minor footnote in the history of this story. >> greg: juan, here's a great comparison. in the life of stormy, trump honored his contract. avenatti didn't. >> juan: you mean the payoff? >> greg: that's the whole point. >> juan: i'm not sure that helps your side. >> greg: it does. she didn't honor her deal and jay hooked up was somebody who was a thief and use your words, scum. trump is in an honorable deal, paying her off. >> juan: "one more thing" is up next.
