tv   Hannity  FOX News  April 18, 2019 6:00pm-7:00pm PDT

6:00 pm
back back tomorrow night, 8:00 p.m., a brand new world russia. will always be the end group thing. we'll see you in our post-russia world tomorrow night. in the meantime, we're going to bring you over to new york city, sean hannity. takes over. >> sean: tucker, anything going on today? >> tucker: it's making me so mad, i can barely -- i can't even talk about russia anymore. >> sean: you need to go to in and out burger, it will make you feel better. it was closed -- it wasn't closed at 6:00 at night. thank you, tucker. buckle up. welcome to "hannity." we begin tonight with a fox news alert. the witch hunt is officially over. the mueller report is out. the president of the united states has been totally and completely vindicated. watch this? >> i'm having a good day too. it's called no conclusillusion, obstruction. [ applause ]
6:01 pm
there never was, by the way, and there never will be. and we do have to get to the bottom of these things, i will say. and this should never happen. this should never happen to another president again. this hoax, it should never happen to another president again. >> we're going to do our part to make sure it doesn't happen again. we're holding those people accountable. we have a lot to get to tonight. but for the past 2 1/2 years, the leader of the free world was forced to dedicate so much precious time, energy, resources, to an unjust investigation surrounding what is a hoax. here's the bottom line directly from the mueller report. quote, the investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian government in its election interference activities. the president's team of lawyers are rightfully triumphant writing,
6:02 pm
quote, the results of the investigation are a total victory for the president, the report underscores what we have argued from the very beginning, there was no collusion, there was no obstruction. it is clear there was no criminal wrongdoing, nothing withheld, nothing concealed, oh, nothing deleted, nothing destroyed, and nothing bleached. that's right, no bleach pit, unlike hillary clinton. the president didn't destroy subpoenaed e-mails or any other evidence in this case. he did not invoke executive privilege. instead, according to independent counsel, ken starr, the president's cooperation in this case was unprecedented and that's because presumptuous had nothing to hide. thousands and thousands of documents were turned over, almost 1.4 million, unfettered access given to trump campaign, officials, administration employees. mueller's team completed 30 hours of interviews with the white house counsel. how does that happen? no executive privilege was used to hide anything in mueller's
6:03 pm
report. by contrast, the obama administration, they used executive privilege to withhold 20 e-mails from then attorney general eric holder surrounding his involvement in the fast and furious gun-running scandal. well, that was a real scandal. whereas trump, russia, collusion, was a farce. tonight, thankfully for the sake of this country, truth has prevailed. as the president's attorneys put it, quote, this vindication of the president is an important step forward for the country and a strong reminder that this type of abuse must never be permitted to occur again. now, coming up in the monologue. we're going to take you through the real crimes that will be exposed. we're going to call out all of the democrats, the media mob who have spent 2.5 years lying, defrauding, the american people. and mark my words, an avalanche of truth and justice is about to bury all of those who abuse their power. 2 1/2 years, never ending.
6:04 pm
nonstop. tinfoil conspiracy theorists, and the media mob obsessed at a level of psychosis we've never seen. every day, russia, russia, russia, collusion, collusion, collusion. after four separate investigations, including a nine-month fbi investigation, a house intel investigation, a bipartisan investigation in the senate, and now the all-powerful mueller probe, we know zero trump-russia collusion. glen green wald put it well. robert mueller did not merely reject the trump-russia conspiracy theories, he obliterated them. this today mark this day the biggest beat down the media mob has experienced in history. because every time they mentioned russia, russia, russia, every time they said collusion, collusion, collusion, we thousand know it was a lie. 2 1/2 years of lie after lie
6:05 pm
after lie, conspiracy theories posing as news programs. by the way, how stupid must rachael maddow and her bland band of blitheerring conspiracy theorists feel today? in a moment, we're going to show you these lies they have peda d pedaled. part of it may make you laugh, part may make you sad for 2 1/2 years. we'll continue the monologue in a second. but joining us is the president's attorney, and he's done legal work for me in the past for the 4,000th time. you know, jay, i have your letter. i read your statement. it's everything you've been saying, rudy's been saying, dowd, others before. unprecedented cooperation. no -- no collusion. no russia collusion. no obstruction. >> yeah, let me tell you what the report said, because it's 400 pages and there's a lot to read. but let me give you the top line findings.
6:06 pm
these are statements contained in the report. the investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign coordinated with the russian government in election interference activities. the investigation did not establish the contact described in volume i, the entire issue of collusion, amounted to an agreement to commit any violation of federal criminal law including foreign influence or campaign finance laws. there was no evidence sufficient enough to bring any kind of a case regarding any kind of violations of these statutes. the investigation did not identify evidence that any u.s. person conspired for coordinating with the ira, those are the ones alleged to be involve in the hacking. the investigation did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian government in the election interference activities. the evidence is not sufficient in any case, this is ap interesting one too that everyone is glossing over, that says there was any conspiracy with any representative of the russian government regarding the 2016 election. i could go on for pages and pages. the point is, this investigation
6:07 pm
started because of allegations about conspiracy or collusion as it was called regarding the trump campaign and the russian government or russian agents. this report, not only vindicates the president completely, but the fact is that the president of the united states has gone through a 2 1/2 year investigation, by the way, it goes back to -- we know it started in 2016 called cross fire hurricane. it's been going on for almost three years. and the parameter with which it was set was to determine russian interference with the election and was there any involvement with the president or the campaign and the answer was no, there was not. and that was the basis upon which this entire investigation started. >> sean: attorney general bahr said the other day and media freakout over it, yes, the trump campaign was spied upon. it happened in a number of ways. it happened vis-a-vis the fisa warrant full of the hillary bought and paid for of all things russian lies as the bulk
6:08 pm
of information, according to the grassley-graham memo. but also stephon halper was empowered to meet george popadopolous and are we to believe the or gins of this as they claim that george popadopolous and a drink set up. do you believe that origin? because that would not warrant what has just happened to this country? >> no, i never thought i would say this. i agree with peter strauss, the agent that was -- that had the text mails regarding the president back and forth with lisa page. he said there was no "there" there, guess what? there was no "there" there. here's what's important. what's in the origin. the attorney general said something last week important, that spying on the campaign -- spying on a campaign is a big deal. and when you have a situation which we know happened here, when you have a situation like this that is taking place, you have to get now to the bottom of
6:09 pm
this. because i represent this president. but some lawyer in the future is going to represent another president. and for the sake of the presidency, no president should have to go through what this president has gone through on this issue. unprecedented. by the way, not only was it unprecedented in scope, but it was unprecedented in the response that we provided to that office of special counsel. we gave -- i say we, the white house, the president, the campaigns, 1.4 million pages of documents. hundreds of witness interviews. and on and on and no executive privilege. i loved the chyrons on the news this morning, redacted report coming. not much redaction, only that was was merrill which has to be. the reality was this was as any transparent in any investigation in any administration in my view in u.s. history.
6:10 pm
>> sean: jay, on the obstruction side of things, mueller did not make the definitive decision but the attorney general did in counsel with the office of legal counsel even rodrosenstein which is interesting to me. >> one thing here, sean, he actually did. he made a determination. because in this sense, it's determined. >> sean: right. >> if there was a case of obstruction, believe me he would have stated it. without any apology, he did not. >> sean: here's the point, though. i know we now know for a fact that they were talking about taping the president without his knowledge and consent. they were talking about invoking the 25th amendment. now, they didn't do it. donald trump didn't hide the fact that this was a witch hunt. he acted, to me, as somebody who was innocent. he was screaming his innocence loudly. and expressing frustration
6:11 pm
justifiably against rod rosenstein, robert mueller, his team of merry democratic donors. janney ray, clinton's former attorney, he was going after all of them. he said it all pubically. and that's the list of them saying, okay, now, if that's obstruction, then that means anybody who proclaims their innocence loutedly and clear -- loudly and clearly would be obstructing. that's the biggest worst example. >> it's called the first amendment to the united states constitution. the president like every other citizen has the freedom of speech. here was the president who was under attack from the moment he came down the elevator to this morning or this afternoon when the report came out. it's been under attack. we know that there's been -- this inquiry has been going on for like i said three years. the president defended himself. he had the constitutional right to do that. he did it. and for that, now, for the country's sake, we don't let this happen
6:12 pm
again, ever again. when the situation like that is. you have to find out how you start. i think the attorney general is going to do the right thing. no question. >> sean: i tell you, there's an avalanche, as i've been reporting coming in days and weeks ahead. we will hold them accountable. i'm not letting this go. because what they did is wrong and illegal and an abuse of power coming up. thank you for all you did. now, back to my monologue. as i said for 2 1/2 year, you, we, the american people, you have been the victims of the biggest con job in american history, every second, every hour, every day. the democrats, the hate trump media mob, all others, perpetrating a lie, every time they said russia, russia, russia, collusion, collusion, they were smearing, besmirching, slandering, trying to undo an election, a duly elected president of the united states, all day, every day, russia,
6:13 pm
russia, collusion, collusion, just to take you down memory lane and remind you of these lies, nonstop conspiracy theories and lies.. >> we're about to find out if the new president of our country is going to do what russia wants as if there are no shoes on the trump human centipede that are not about russia. russia, russia. russia. >> this cloud of collusion with russia will hang over him no matter where he stands he may be the first president in quite sometime to face the real prospect of jail time they're shocked that the noose is tightening it's clear that mueller is now connecting the dots between a massive obstruction intended to hide the truth this president needs to be impeached. i believe that. i believe there was collusion. >> donald trump's done. he's done. there's no question about it. >> he's got to know his future looks like it's behind bars we have a treasoned president.
6:14 pm
>> he feels the world is closing in on him. he's done what he can in trashing the special counsel mr. trump is seeing more and more of the walls closing in on him which is why he's becoming increasingly desperate. >> whoo! if he fires any secret service agent who would allow the federal marshal in. what if donald trump simply decides i don't have to flow the law. i refuse to be held under the law. no marshal can get into this white house unbelievable conspiracy theories lies. they betray their audience. they don't care at all about the truth. look at what they did. look at what they did to a 16-year-old, nikola sandman trying to destroy a 16-year-old kid with nothing but baseless lies. they didn't make one phone call to try to confirm the story. they make it up and they bludgeon a 16-year-old kid for wearing a maga hat. that's how much these people in the media, in the democratic party, hate trump. there was no basic research in
6:15 pm
the case of jussie smollett. don't forget the i believers when it came to justice cav nall, or when they set out to destroy, go back to richard jewell, the duke lacrosse kids, the students at the center of the fake uva rape case, the cambridge smear, the ferguson police officer, darren wilson, guilt by the media, accusation. the baltimore police, guilt by accusation. on every one of those cases, we were right, they were wrong. we saw it over and over again on trump, russia, collusion, collusion. false reports that don jr. would be found guilty of crimes, derek kushner, guilty, melania, other family members smeared, besmirched at every turn by sanctimonious, self-righteous, overpaid lazy opinion-driven liars in the news media, conspiracy theorists. no shame whatsoever.
6:16 pm
what are the apologies, the retractions, the corrections? nowhere to be found. just the opposite. now double down on hysteria, reckless, reckless reporting. now it's obstruction, obstruction. if mueller could, he and his partners and team of democratic donors and hillary lovers, they would have found crimes. but now with zero introspection, no self-reflection, no apology, it's just on like it never happened. let's go to the next pack of lies, the next round of breathless reporting, the next manufacturered scandal to destroy trump, a psychotic rage in every so-called newsroom in america, all while ignoring simultaneously what is the biggest story in their careers and lifetime because of their blind adherence to rigid left wing loving hillary ideology. so it's no shock that just as we predicted yesterday, the media mob and their eck co-chamber are back in action with one last
6:17 pm
full on hysterical freakout over the mueller investigation. this is a sad disturbing grand finale. but it's now been over two years of this -- this lying campaign to destroy a president. of course, we the people, the smelly walmart voters who clink to our god, guns, and religion, thor redeemables and deplorables, don't think they like us any better this is an investigation at its core about donald trump's daily, sometimes hourly assault on the rule of law in this country. as the chief executive, he sat in his pajamas watching fox & friends maligning the fbi. bill didn't walk into that room with a scale of 0. rule of law had a deficit because donald trump had been kicking it in the teeth. >> can i just talk about this issue of the president's concerns about leaks? you know who else was concerned about leaks? richard nixon?
6:18 pm
>> this report is a gift to the government of russia. this is a very proud moment for vladimir putin. >> the amount of information that relates to collusion and obstruction activity, is really quite extensive in this. >> there's significant -- there's significant material in here that we did not know on the question of collusion. it's here in substance, in nuance. in context. and it's there for all people of goodwill in this country if they're not so dug in politically or i'd logically to process the information and make some sophisticated judgments and the other thing this report did was it corroborate add lot of the good journalism that was done mueller highly respected investigator and law enforcement official. he could not find sufficient evidence that there was conspiracy by any american or any member of the trump team. that's great news. barr
6:19 pm
repeating it over and over and over again six or seven times, that's excessive. >> sean: you can see, more and more fake news and some collusion truthers desperately clinging on to a totally fake claim. others, they're shifting the narrative to obstruction of justice or the president's taxes. the president was not charged. he was cleared of obstruction. not by mueller, not by the attorney general of the united states who emphasized today that obstruction just did not occur. it did not. sorry. >> the report recounts 10 episodes involving the president and discusses potential legal theories for connecting those activities to the elements of an obstruction offense. after carefully reviewing the facts and legal theories outl e outlined in the report, and in consultation of the office of legal counsel and other department lawyers, the deputy attorney general and i concluded that the evidence developed by the special counsel is not
6:20 pm
sufficient to establish that the president committed an obstruction of justice offense. >> sean: top law enforcement official in the u.s., the deputy attorney general, attorney general, the office of legal counsel all agree, no obstruction, no collusion. yes, the president talked about the ways to curtail the special counsel investigation. yeah, i'm sure it was frustrati frustrating. yeah, he discussed firing mueller, the president hope openly hoping that lieutenant general flynn would not face charges. yes, the president expressed frustration and anger that his presidency was being burdened with an investigation which is a hoax. you know, talking, thinking, tweeting, they are not crimes. if the president wanted to sink the special counsel investigation, he had article 2 authority under the constitution. he could have personally fired robert mueller or anyone else for that matter. the president did not fire mueller or rosenstein or wiseman
6:21 pm
or g.d. ray or any other clinton donors and allies investigating this sham, this campaign. the president took no action to impede the prosecution of lieutenant general flynn or paul manafort or george popadapolous or anyone else. the president engaged in an unprecedented level of cooperation with the special counsel and above all else, there was no underlying crime. none. 2 1/2 years. russia, russia, collusion, collusion, now, all lies. it should take this country's collective breath away. and according to mueller's report, in 2017, the president reacted to the appointment of the special counsel, quote, oh, my god, this is terrible. this is the end of my presidency. i'm bleeped. but, the president -- but president trump didn't say that because he was guilty of his crime. read a little further. it was about concerns about how will impact and affect his
6:22 pm
presidency and the country. quote, everyone tells me, if you get one of these independent counsels, it ruins your presidency. it takes years and years and i won't be able to do anything. that's where his thought process was. and actually, context matters, doesn't it? the president is not being charged with obstruction because obstruction didn't exist. now the media mob lashing out one last time, and at the end of the new attorney general william barr because he won't do their bidding. more psychotic raging from your friends in the fake news industry. they can't help themselves. it is a mass psychosis at this point. >> at the age of 68, bill barr has decided his legacy he is fine with his legacy being the ag who took one for the team. >> we would not be surprised if some headline writer somewhere came up with baghdad bill barr for what we saw today it was
6:23 pm
excessive and suspicious. >> mr. barr violated all of the norms that had been established post watergate and took us back to nixonian type things i reached a point where i just wrote down, barr continues to shill for the president sometimes you can have an attorney general who's just compromised for one reason or the other. >> real, brian williams? you're the same guy that saw dead bodies in katrina in areas where there's no water? you're going to lecture anybody? come up with a few names for you. any of these people concerned with obstruction. okay, why did they ignore the biggest slam dunk case of obstruction in modern history? look at your screen as we told you last night, hillary clinton, she did commit an underlying crime, a clear violation of the espionage act we know for a fact, it's incontrovertible. she stored classified top secret
6:24 pm
information marked as such on an unsecured server. she deleted then 33,000 subpoenaed e-mails. she acid washed her hard drives with bleach pit, she removed the sim cards, had aides destroy devices, blackberries, with a hammer. she had intent crucial to the crime that was committed and the intent was to destroy the evidence. but now, equal justice is coming. pay close attention because what we're about to play out here in front of america in the coming days, weeks, and months, is everything that we've been telling you. the clinton e-mail investigation is now being probed by senator lindsey graham because the fix was in. that investigation was rigged. criminal referrals from the deep state operatives that tried to help to elect hillary clinton, giving her a pass on a crime she committed. yeah, they're going to have criminal referrals from devin nun nunez. and the horowitz fisa
6:25 pm
investigation. the bulk of that information in the fisa application, hillary clinton's bought and paid for russian dossier. the investigation is going on about leaking. now the president last time we interviewed him right here on the program, the fbi's 302s conversations, christopher steele, bruce orr, etc. they will be coming out. yes, the fisa applications against carter page, the bulk of information, hillary's bought and paid for russian lies, they're all coming out. the gang of eight information, fbi admitting wrongdoing in some of that i'm told. and for all of you democrats, you uh claim to love transparency, buckle up. you're about to get what you've been wishing for. and it won't paint a pretty picture in any way of your friends in the deep state. we're talking about you, loretta lynch, clearly you interfered in the clinton e-mail investigation. we now know that investigation was completely rigged to save hillary from being indicted. you know, the matter, not the investigation. and we're not just talking about the secret meeting on the tarmac
6:26 pm
with bill clinton days before the decision, or the time you instructed comey to call it a matter not under investigation. look at these newly released transcript, closed door testimony, even struck and page, they're admitting the d.o.j. controlled all of this, rigging the clinton probe from the beginning. they knew the fix was in. so what does loretta lynch know, when did she know it. where's her e-mail and text messages. why did an unmasking request in election year 2016 increase almost 350% under her watch? what did rice know? when did she know it? why would the un ambassador samantha powers request, oh, 100 unmaskings and say oh, i didn't really request that? she didn't, who did? we go to our good friend, the man who stands above it all, james comey. why did he sign off on that first fisa warrant in october of 2016 to spy on the trump campaign associate carter
6:27 pm
page, using hillary's bought and paid for phony russian dossiers, the bulk of evidence. that means he's signing off that it's true and accurate to the best of his knowledge. we now know it was never verified. and we know it's unverifiable because christopher steele doesn't even stand by his own dossier. remember, he told the trump -- donald trump, president-elect at the time when he went to trump tower that the contents of the dossier was salacious and unverified. yet, three months before, he went before a fisa judge and said the dossier was true and correct. three months earlier. so the question for jim comey tonight was did you lie in october of 2016 or january of 2017. and by the way, why did sally yates and david avonte and rod rosenstein who signed up on the last fisa warrant? why did they sign off on unverifiable. were they trafficking the dirty dossier
6:28 pm
throughout the federal government. by the way, who leaked it to isikoff, david corn, "the washington post"? did they leak it to impact an election with russian lies, to bludgeon the president-elect? who told harry reid? and let's not forget struck and page and the high-ranking fbi officials who rigged the whole investigation into clinton because she was the favored candidate that should win 100 million to 0. the people voting for trump like me and you, we were just smelly walmart shoppers. so many questions will be answered now that we know that we're spies inside the trump campaign. here's another question. was there any outsourcing of intelligence gathering? and in other words, were there any efforts by high-ranking members of our intel community to bypass american laws and maybe use our british, australia, italian spy friends to surveil the trump campaign. and by the way, who got to step
quote
6:29 pm
on halper. who tasked him to covertly meet with popadopolus and carter page. and by the way, who recruited him from the federal government. this clearly happened. if any of this happened before july 31, the alleged beginning of the fbi's collusion investigation, we need to know when it started. and finally, we need to know this big question -- what did he know? what did president obama know? and when did he know it? all of this happened under his watch. here's what's coming -- here's what i predict is coming in the days, weeks, and months ahead. we'll get answers to all of these pressing questions. the hate trump media mob democrats deep state, they will get burned with a barrage, an avalanche, of truth and evidence the likes of which they have no idea is coming. they don't want to know. joining us now, white house press secretary sarah sanders. sara, just your general reaction
6:30 pm
to all of this first. you're being attacked today also. >> i think that the white house is in a great position. and what we've been saying for the last 2 1/2 years is finally i think totally been vindicated, the president is completely exonerated, no collusion, no obstruction. i find it absolutely outrageous that people like jake tapper you showed a clip a few minutes ago of him saying i can't believe barr has said no collusion so many times when they have been saying that there was collusion every single day all day for the last 2 1/2 years. it's outrageous the way that the media and democrats have behaved. and fanning ly -- frankly, the meltdown we saw unfold on tv today is truly astonishing, a great day for america. not just because it's a great day for the president, but it's a good thing when can say that not just the president, not just his campaign, but no american is
6:31 pm
involved in co-lewding with the foreign government and a sad day in america when democrats and members of the liberal media are sad it didn't happen. to me, this is the most mind blowing thing of this. they would want someone from their own country to have worked with a foreign government to take down the president and interfere with the election. the sad truth is, the one that we've known all along -- president trump is president because he had a better message, a better vision, and he outworked his opponent. he beat hillary clinton fair and square. >> sean: it was fine on the campaign, the attorney general mentioned it, they freaked out, that's true. they used the dirty dossier to get in the back door through carter page. then you had stephon halper working on what have of the deep state and going after carter page and sam clovis. the media is attacking you today because i guess the testimony you gave you said the fbi people you know were -- were, i could
6:32 pm
tell you -- let me put it this way -- every fbi rank and file guy, the 99.9% i know have all thanked me, because they're hurt -- their -- this is the premier law enforcement agency in the world. just like our intelligence community. same thing. the premier intelligence community in the world. they were hurt by a few at the top. and they're angry about it. and you said that but explain? >> look, i acknowledged that i had a slip of the tongue when i used the word "countless," but it's not untrue. and certainly you just echoed the sentiment and the point i was making is that a number of both current and former fbi agents agreed with the president. james comey was a disgraced leaker who tried to politicize and undermine the agency he was supposed to run. firing james comey remains one of the best decisions that the president made. the only problem is, he could have done it sooner and maybe it would have been a better thing. but absolutely the right
6:33 pm
decision and every day since that he's proven he was right all along. >> sean: he could be fired for any reason or no reason at all. i got to run. sara, thank you. when we come back, the great one, mark levine weighs in. straight ahead. claritin-d relieves 8, including sinus congestion and pressure. claritin-d relieves more.
6:34 pm
6:35 pm
6:36 pm
6:37 pm
>> unfreedom of the press. i can't wait to read this book. i call him the great one, the host of life, liberty, levine here on the fox news channel, nationally syndicated radio host, dear friend of mine, great one, in many ways, i'm glad for the country and the president. many ways, i am. in other ways, we came dangerously close -- this was an attempted coup, a rigged investigation, they attempted to rig the general election. then they tried to undo a duly
6:38 pm
elected president. >> no question about it. i have in front of me, the epa should be upset about the amount of paper that's involved here, the mueller report. 400 pages that could have taken two words, no conclusion. manufactured from day one. they break it to two parts. first of all, he's wrong about no collusion. wrong about no collusion. the hillary clinton campaign and the dnc, they co-lewded. senior level of the fbi, that isn't even there anymore, they're all under criminal or ig investigation, they colluded. you had mccabe on "60 minutes" all but saying that the president of the united states was a spy for russia, conspiring on the 25th amendment, all of this, all of this manufactured drama and criminal activity and the media in this country, mediagate, going along with it, even today. you have this report, it's in two parts.
6:39 pm
the second part is really a political report. it's an impeachment report. and let me tell you what happened here. what happened here, and i have a question too -- what happened here is bill barr rightly testified during his confirmation and he said, look, i'm going to release as much of this report as i can. and the democrats take over the house before that. and mueller and his people say, okay. perfect. we don't have enough on obstruction. we have enough on obstruction, we bring obstruction. we're a bunch of rabid democrats dressed up as prosecutors. look how they've treated manafort and his home. look how they treated -- and suddenly, they're going to be forebearing? no, they're not going to be forebearing. let me read you something, it's been read all day on the air waves. ultimately, why we believed we had the authority and the legal jurisdiction to issue a grand jury subpoena to obtain the president's testimony, we chose not to do so. you didn't choose not to do so, you would have had your
6:40 pm
asseskicked from one court to the other. you had no criminal predicate for a subpoena, none. and they basically confessed. they said, hay hey, look, we decided in tendf our investigation, a couple of years of litigation over this, it's not worth it, we basically had everything we needed. you basically had everything you needed? and yet you had wanted to get the president under oath in front of a grand jury to trick him the way you tricked general flynn and others? you want to take out the president of the united states who had enough smarts to say, no, i'm not playing that game. here's my question, sean hannity. when did mr. mueller know there was no collusion. all of us knew from right out of the gate. he didn't write this in three weeks. this is 200 pages. no collusion. for jake tapper, no collusion. no collusion, no collusion, no collusion. okay, when did you know that, well, he had to know it. some people think maybe 18 months ago, maybe 15 months ago.
6:41 pm
you had an obligation to go to the microphone to tell the american people that your president did not co-lewd, that his campaign did not co-lewd. that his white house did not co-lewd. and mueller didn't do it. why? because they wanted to get the president on a phony obstruction chart. look at this, the second half of the report, it's all politics. it's all about impeachment. it's written for jerry nadler, it's written for nancy pelosi. it's written for cnn and msnbc. it reads like some junior editorial writer at "the new york times" put this together. there's barely no legal stuff in here. and you can hear them say it now. well, we've got to move beyond the law. it's a political decision. oh, so now you confess that it's a political decision. i want to read to you the impeachment clause. because you have a lot of people who don't understand impeachment. they say it's a political issue. you don't have to commit a crime. >> sean: you got a minute, mark but the standard is actually
6:42 pm
higher, quickly. the standard is impeachment for conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. it's a very, very high standard. let me tell you something. the democrats in the house tried to impeach this president, 63 million people are going to rise up. let me ask this question -- how many men who've been impeached have been removed from office? none. not a single president has been removed from office. you think this senate is going to remove this president based on these bogus allegations of obstruction? this president never, never asserted privilege. it's the first president in modern times where the administration is under investigation, who's never asserted privilege, iran continue are a, watergate, clinton, they all asserted privileges, clinton made up privileges. he had his own white house counsel talk to the prosecutor for 30 days, never happened,
6:43 pm
never happen. >> sean: when is your book out? >> may 21. you can preorder it now. >> sean: by the way, i get the first interview. thank you. >> you got it, baby. >> sean: this is what you're great at, great one. mark's show, life, liberty, levine, number one show, sunday night, 10:00 eastern. i told you it would all boom rang back on to the democrats and the deep state, congressman nunez, sara carter, ken starr all coming up. and struggle. we actually... seek it out. other species do difficult things because they have to. we do difficult things. because we like to. we think it's... fun. introducing the all-new 2019 ford ranger built for the strangest of all creatures.

>> sean: more reaction to the mueller report and to give his latest on the fisa abuse, leaking, so much more, ranking member of the house committee, congressman nunez. i want your reaction overall. more importantly, i've talked
6:48 pm
about an avalanche of information, interviews. we now know attorney general barr has an investigation, the horowitz report, hoover's investigation, 302s, fisa applications, gang of 8. a all of this is coming out that exposes real corruption. tell us where you think it's going, what do you think of this report? >> thanks, sean. we have a very important revelation today in what i call the mueller dossier. because for the most part, as we predicted, it's not worth anything. you would have gotten more from reading the house republican report from 13 months ago, in fact, that's 250 pages i'd advise your listeners or viewers to go and review that report if you want good reading. and factual reading. when you look at what happened today, remember we talked a lot about the scope memo. what were the directions given to the special counsel? well, we now know hid up on page 11, very thinly, still veiled,
6:49 pm
but we now know they used the steele dossier, the clinton dirt, the clinton paid-for dirt as part of the memo for the special counsel that directed the special counsel what to do. well, carter page and paul manafort, that information came from political opponents, the clinton campaign fed right into the fbi directed to the special counsel to go and investigate what was in the infamous steele dossier. that is the only thing of relevance that was in today's 450-page report. >> so you're saying that -- >> sean: they used unverifiable russian lies paid for by hillary as the road map, the russian team, the partisans. hanging out in the dossier. >> yeah, so the same dossier that was used to get the fisa warrant on carter page that many of the dirty cops on the mueller team handled, which i don't even know how they can even be -- they were in the chain of
6:50 pm
custody of this information. >> sean: wow. >> rosen stein directed them to use that dirt, that dossier, which i think makes up the bulk of what is in the -- in the scope memo, that we have still yet to be able to see. >> sean: what's next? what do you? i mentioned all i see coming. what do you see coming? >> well, look. there -- we have to have equal justice under the law. i'm so happy that attorney general barr is just being an adult, being factual, driving the media absolutely nuts. but we have to have real action taken against these people who did this. we can't afford for this to ever happen again in our history. we can't -- step that a second. you do this a lot. step back and think about this. the most powerful intelligence operations ever built in the history of the planet, tens of billions of dollars a year that is supposed to keep this country safe were turned and used on a
6:51 pm
political campaign. that should never ever happen in this country. >> sean: well done. thank you. ranking member of the house intel committee, devin nunez. joining us now, sara carter, former independent counsel ken starr. the russia hoax. the scheme to free hillary clinton and frame donald trump. wow, i think it's kind of an accurate title. wonder why it. >>s -- wonder why it was number one for 1,000 weeks or whatever it was, greg? >> 22 months, $25 million, more than 500 witnesses. frankly, all robert mueller had to do was read my book. it was all laid out, the facts, the evidence, and the law. and the fbi knew there was no collusion with russia. they didn't care. they used a phony document funded by hillary clinton's campaign as a pretext to try to damage trump to destroy him, to
6:52 pm
undo the election and remove him from office. >> sean: we all believed that -- that this started much earlier. this didn't start july 31 as we've been told, did it? >> no, it did not. in fact, there's a lot of evidence that points to the fact, sean, that it started much before the cross fire hurricane investigation at the end of july. it started way earlier in 2016. and this is what they're going to be looking at. this is the year of the boom boomerang. the biggest revelation for me in the entire mueller saga in his report was the fact that there was never any predicate for a crime. i mean, there was never a crime that was committed that should have moved this into this full investigation with the fbi. so, they're going to look at the very beginning of this investigation. not just horowitz. horowitz's report is going to be focused on the fbi and the fbi and how they handled it with the d.o.j. but i think for attorney general
6:53 pm
william barr and for the others investigating, they're going to go and see the wide scope of this. how far did this go? >> sean: ken starr, let me get your take on it. it was after the starr report that they changed the independent counsel law. madeleine didn't want your report to come out. but get your observations on this? >> yeah, i'm going to say bill barr has gone the extra mile in terms of saying, okay, i want transparency. but guess what, when these regulations under which bob mueller was appointed were put into effect, the american people were saying, we don't want that system anymore. so that system went away. and the regulations and bill barr said it again today called for a confident confidential re. we don't like besmirching people and dragging their names through the mud and so forth. that was the old system. now we have a new system. >> he didn't have to release anything. >> exactly right. all he had to do is what he did on march 24, sean, which was
6:54 pm
notify and provide an explanation. so he's gone the extra mile. >> sean: let me ask greg and sarah simultaneously, just short on time obviously for tonight, i keep talking about an avalanche. and that there are going to be indictments. and that all these people missed the biggest abuse of power story in history. sarah we'll start with you. then we'll ask greg, what's coming? >> there will be indictments. it will be an avalanche, and according to the sources that i was speaking with just today, people are already turning on each other. so we're going to see people, senior officials within the fbi. people within the doj, that are going to try to throw their colleagues under the bus just to save themselves. and i think that they need to be very concerned now, very concerned about what they did and about we newsing you know our intelligence community in law enforcement. >> sean: just fisa abuse alone, those that rigged the hillary
6:55 pm
campaign alone, those who tried to undo it alone, serious problems, the 99% of good people. >> officials using their office, abusing them for political purposes. lying to a court. a conspiracy to leak government documents. stealing government documents. if i were james comey, andrew mccabe, brennan clapper, i wouldn't be sweeping very well tonight or many nights to come. >> ken starr real quick, ten seconds, do you agree? >> i agree that there's going to be a full revelation, bill barr is going to get to the bottom of this. >> sean: all right, thank you all. final thoughts when we get back. o finish her senior year. things will be tight but, we can make this work. ♪ now...

each day justin at work... walk. and after work. he does it all with dr. scholl's. only dr. scholl's has massaging gel insoles that provide all-day comfort. to keep him feeling more energized. dr. scholl's. born to move. >> sean: unfortunately, that's all the time we have left this evening. we are going to be back here tomorrow. we are going to be joined by the president's attorney, rudy giuliani, carter page, george papadopoulos, trey gowdy, and
7:00 pm
we'll lay down what the future holds but we will uncover, and already have, the biggest abuse of power, corruption, scandal in american history. guess what? your media was complicit. all right. we are always fair, balanced, not the hate trump media. let not your heart be troubled. lara, in use today? >> laura: can you imagine if any of these lefties, these never trumpers have been falsely accused as the president has been falsely accused, have the entire family tree dragged through the mud and what it would have done for them? what have they been able to withstand the scrutiny? they would've mounted. >> sean: under the most difficult assistant you have more precedents set than any president in modern times, and other under the scry from day one. what they've done here is, number one, they rigged an electi t
