6:00 pm
you are a wise man, joe concha, thank you. speed two, we will be back tomorrow 8:00 p.m., the the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and group think. think dvr but be more than anything new york city, sean hannity. >> sean: tucker carlson, slow news night, anything happening? it is certainly slow, great to see you, tucker great show. buckle up welcome to >> hannity: . let me give you a quick headlines in the details we will follow that nobody else will report. the mueller witch hunt is completely over. it is done. nobody listens to the attorney general, and yeah, the attorney general admitted today, everything we recorded the last two years, full criminal investigations are now just beginning. imagine that, a talk show host is right and so many in the fake news industry are wrong. we will get to all of it but
6:01 pm
first breaking moments ago, the attorney general barr will not head back to capitol hill to be grilled by jerry nadler's lawyers because he's too weak to question him himself. tonight come of course, predictably, more breathless hysteria, selective moral outrage from the left. they are desperately trying to revive what is now a dead, fake, phony narrative. that is finished. they are wrong. they were wrong. they lied to the american people. they continue to lie to the american people. they perpetrated a hoax. they pushed conspiracy theories. they lost in operation cross fire hurricane has now turned into operation boomerang. we will have full coverage of how barr, horowitz, two and the corrupt actors in the deep state those that abused power. they will bring equal justice and equal application of the laws to the american people.
6:02 pm
it seems, tonight, finally the constitution and rule of law will be followed. also tonight come a major breaking news report, brand-new from john solomon surrounding bruce and nellie will they be in serious legal trouble? i think we predicted that too but the mueller witch hunt is over. don't let nobody else for you. they can talk about it till the cows come home. they can sit, go home and their heads can spin around like linda blair in the exorcist. they can project vomit, the green stuff, and it will not change the truth. the second part is, what we have diligently reported, night after night after night for two years on this program, our ensemble cast come i can't name everybody. there's not a lot of us, but talk radio, rush limbaugh, mark levan and a few others on the channel. like laura, tucker, fox & friends, we have all been right. so many others have gotten it
6:03 pm
dead wrong. they missed the biggest story in their lifetime, and we can confirm tonight the criminal investigations are, in fact, underway and i made sure they. that is the biggest headline to come out of today and i promise you know one else will report it. but not according to the democratic and media mob, the ones that are full of rage and psychotic hatred that, you know borders all things trump. they are obsessing about barr's contentious hearing on capitol hill which could have basically been wrapped up 2 minutes. after these important questions, this is the money moment, if you will, lindsey graham, it says it all. it confirms what i just told you. take a look. >> do you share my concerns about the fisa warrant process? >> yes. >> do you share the counterintelligence investigation and why it was open? >> yes. >> do you share my concerns the
6:04 pm
professional from a lack of professionalism, the clinton email investigation, something we should look at? >> yes. >> do you expect to change your mind about the bottom-line conclusions of the mueller report? >> no. >> tucker: do you think the president's campaign in 2017 was thoroughly looked at in terms of whether or not they colluded with the russians? >> yes. and the answer is no according to bob mueller. >> that is right. he could not fight about obstruction but you did come is that correct? >> yet that is right. >> do you feel good about your decision? >> yes. >> sean: no collusion, no obstruction and as we said the biggest headline no one in the media mob will ever tell you how the attorney general has confirmed today, he is investigating fisa abuse, licit spine, clinton's rigged investigation, clinton's collusion with her dirty dossier, the dirty dossier.
6:05 pm
ukrainian collusion and so much more. remember, that is only beginning today. there is so much, a cascade, an avalanche of information. we will get to lindsey graham who will join us in a moment but nearly 24 hours the predictable media mob is totally, completely about a new report for "the washington post" and "new york times." last night, hours prior to barr's hearing, the two far left media propaganda outlets light again conveniently granted access to a leaked letter from team mueller to the attorney general's office that expressed frustration over how barr initially summarized the report. "washington post" headline, mueller complained that barr's letter did not capture the entirety of the trump road. but within their own reporting come away underneath the headlines, they actually contradicted their own headlines. the actual truth emerged. according to a doj spokesperson,
6:06 pm
now confirmed by the attorney general himself, the special counsel emphasized nothing. zero! and the attorney general attorney general's four-page march 24th letter was inaccurate or misleading. nothing! but that expressed frustration over the lack of content, and the resulting media coverage regarding the analysis. he is criticized in the media too. something mueller and i have in common. this is how attorney general barr responded earlier today. let's go to the videotape. >> i said, bob, what is with the letter, you know, why don't you just pick up the phone and call me if there is an issue? and he said that they were concerned about the way that the media was playing this. and felt that it was important to get out the summaries, which they felt, would put their work in proper context.
6:07 pm
and avoid some of the confusion that was emerging. and i asked him if he felt that my letter was misleading or inaccurate. and he said, no. >> sean: oh, so according to mueller committee is the attorney general's job to shape how the media reports a story? really? bob? barr followed up with a shot at mueller's band of democratic donors, he appointed. even the guy hillary's victory party, an atrocious track record and of course that included the hillary clinton attorney as it relates to the clinton foundation. take a look. >> the letter is a bit snooty and i think it was written by one of the snap -- staff people. did you make a written memorandum of your conversation? did you make a memorandum or anyone else? did anyone come either you or anyone on your staff, memorialize your conversation
6:08 pm
with robert mueller? >> yes. >> who did that? >> there were notes taken. >> may we have those notes? >> no. >> sean: no. [laughter] you have got to love that. let's take a moment to lay out the facts one more time. well, some people just need to know where this is going. we are trying to educate them. and it is hard. they are so entrenched in their own conspiracy theories, lies in their own mind come i actually believe that they believe their lies at this point. zero evidence that anyone in the trump campaign colluded with russia. mueller did not make a determination on obstruction. the attorney general indicated these basic findings in his letter march 24th. the department of justice then determined, yes, no obstruction took place and april 18th, mueller released the full report with only a few mandated reductions because of a well supported by democrats following the start investigation into
6:09 pm
bill clinton. the attorney general had no obligation whatsoever to release any of the mueller report. that is the truth. that is the law. these are the facts. and senator ted cruz pointed out earlier today the complaints to the left are totally absurd. take a look. so their entire argument is, general barr, you suppressed the 19 pages that are entirely public, that we have, that we can read, that they know every word of it. and they are complaint is it was delayed a few weeks. and that was because of your decision not to release the report piece mail but the 19 pages along with the entire 448 pages produced by the special counsel. >> yes. >> if that is their argument, i have to say that is an exceptionally weak argument. because if you are hiding something, i will tell you right
6:10 pm
now general barr, you are doing a lousy job of hiding it. >> sean: all right, the media mob, democratic mob, they don't care about facts. truly an agenda and by the by not serving we the people, which is why they are smearing the attorney general and even calling for him to be impeached. it won't go anywhere, but take a look anyway. >> the top law-enforcement official in the limited did he mislead the congress and the american people to protect the president? >> he was being deceptive and he knew he was. >> there was an ease in which barr lied. there are a contradiction -- contradictions and a mystifying performance. >> i think it is in patterns. they attorney general says tuesday is monday and the sun is the moon. filled with lies and misrepresentation and now i think there are cases we can point to you that people will say or perjury. but what we have now is an attorney general who has presented himself in a way that is not repeatable anymore. he has fully, obviously,
6:11 pm
corrupted. >> sean: once again the media merely doing the video. the allies and radical socialist party more interested in grandstanding and rage hating trump and legislating on behalf of you, we the people, take a look. >> i think it is harsh. i think your credibility is undermined within the departme department. in this committee, and with the american people. >> mr. barr, you seem to have known the filibuster rules better than the senators do. >> your answer was purposely misleading, and i think others do too. >> the american people know that you are no different than rudy giuliani or kellyanne conway or the other people who sacrifice their once decent reputation fod liar in the oval office. have chosen to be the president's lawyer and sighed with him over the interest of the american people. >> sean: believe it or not the
6:12 pm
fake news "new york times" opinion page melodramatic where james comey, well, theatrically exclaiming "mr. trump, eat your soul." in small bites come i can't say it with a straight face. the disgraced fbi director who said "you have the right to remain silent. i suggest you use it. you will probably regret not listening to me." the attorney general's soloist because of president trump. perhaps it is time for mr. comey to finally wipe away his tears from getting canned and realize that jim, the writing is on the wall. trust me. you are in serious trouble tonight, legal jeopardy. you abused your power. i know you are thinking you are super patriot but a lot of the fbi i know are embarrassed by what you did it. it was the first fbi official to sign off on that fisa laurent despite the trump campaign associate carter page, oh, based on unverified, and cooperated,
6:13 pm
bought and paid for the clinton campaign off to research and "the new york times" is telling us may have been russian disinformation. you signed up on that. he is the one that told president-elect months later it's a dossier was unverified. not what he said in the fisa warrant. he said it was salacious months after use the fisa warrant. did he lie in october, january 2017, october 2016? he met with susan rice, president obama, crazy uncle joe with the dossier of the election. he licked government memos -- memos with president trump in order to spur special counsel investigation and that might bea crime even though he was the one that declare the president and fbi director for any or no reason at all. he has the one surrounded himself with partisan corrupt high-ranking officials who have all either resigned, been fired or demoted. and how james comey is the one along with fellow deep state counterparts the tables have now turned.
6:14 pm
a new sheriff in town. his name is bill barr. and he confirmed today the investigation into your actions. the deep state spying and all the other shenanigans that happen, wrecking hillary's investigation, trying to bludgeon the president duly elected by week, the people of the united states. we now know now know horowitz investigation into fisa abuse, investigation into leaking come up, up more into christopher steele's law and paid for dossier paid for by hillary andh ukraine. they are trying to give us the evidence. a masking request carried out by susan rice, samantha power in 2016, 350% increased criminal referrals are coming in here. the united states of america supposed to be democratic republic based on the rule of law, a constitution. it is not a bureaucratic dictatorship where power is abused and used by a select few
6:15 pm
unelected, unaccountable officials. we give you these tools because we trust you to protect this country. not use them and turn them on the elected president of the united states or the american people. this is now time we either get this straight or say goodbye, usa. because as attorney general, barr pointed out, our criminal justice system must never be used, ever used as a political weapon, ever again! right, jim? take a look. >> the report is now in the hands of the american people. everyone can decide for themselves. there is an election in 18 months. that is very democratic process. but we are out of it. we have to stop using the criminal justice process as a political weapon. to the extent there was over reached my don't want to judge people's motives and come to conclusion on that. but to the extent there was overreach, what we have to be concerned about is, you know, a
6:16 pm
few people at the top getting into their heads that they know better than the american people. >> i have set up before and i will say it again, jim comey, super patriot, you have the right to remain silent and i suggest you kind of listen. maybe you should stop writing all beds and start looking in the mirror and maybe beef up your legal team, which, by the way you do with people that are against you, pretty smart, clever. chairman of judiciary committee led today's hearing and did a phenomenal job. i would say on a scale of 1 to 10, you and the attorney general get a thousand. that list that you went down, that is the headline. this is over. he's not changing his mind and this is all beginning. >> tell all my friends on the other side, we gave mueller two years to do his job. he had 19 lawyers. he had $25 million and interviewed 500 people and
6:17 pm
issued 2,000 subpoenas. he had plenty of opportunity without interference. the president gave him a million and a half documents and everybody around the president and the president's campaign testified voluntarily and here is what we know. there was no conspiracy between the trump campaign and russians at all. the mueller could not decide chose not to press forward on obstruction. i always thought obstruction argument was absurd. it is over. the reason they are mad at barr and me is because they didn't get the outcome they want. my friends on the other side want out, and they don't care how they get it. >> sean: you know, senator, i've known you a long time. i want you to delve into that line of questioning that i play for you went on your list buys a abuse, the rigged criminal investigation into hillary. it was all rigged. she did violate the espionage act, and it was classified top secret information on the
6:18 pm
server. she had an intent by bleach bit and hammers at points and cards but the intent was to destroy the evidence. obstruction which the very thing liberals are caring about, that would be a slam dunk obstruction case to me. what are your thoughts? >> lindsey: when i tried to show, when it came to the trump campaign we had bob mueller one of the most experienced lawyers from a former fbi director, take two years, $25 million, 19 lawyers. everybody in the country believe he was a fair-minded guy and he reached a conclusion that the left does not like. but the verdict is in for mueller. no collusion. no obstruction. now, what i try to show the public that when it came to clinton, clinton's email investigation there was no bob mueller, and hated trumps guts and wanted to win hundred million to nothing but i wanted to know if i so warrant obtained against carter page based on
6:19 pm
garbage, collected by foreign agent paid for by the democratic party. it is unverified to this day. and i want to point out that they open up a counter intelligence investigation against president trump for bad motives? we will get the answers to those questions. >> sean: you know, i think this is important as well. okay, so the issue finding out with that they rigged the clinton investigation -- >> lindsey: yeah. >> seanwe went the same time interesting to originate this cross fire hurricane. important questions. let's talk about the pfizer abuse, now "the new york times" suggesting it might have been paid for russian information? while matt, that is a big deal but more importantly, do you believe as i did that a fraud was committed on the fisa court, fisa applications. i read something, graham memo the bulk application and fisa applications was the paid for
6:20 pm
dossier that might be rushing this information? is that true, sir? >> lindsey: i know that mccabe said without the dossier that there would be no warrant. i know to this day there is no this -- verification of the dossier, garbage and the people certified that it was reliable. i know that james comey the fbi director after president trump gave him the same dossier and told the president we can't verify. we just want you to know about it. that doesn't add up. we will look at all of that but here's what i do know. nobody cares when the other side, what the fbi did or didn't do when it comes to clinton. they don't care what they did or didn't do when it comes to trauma. they are trying to destroy his presidency. from their point of view the rule of law is the tool to get an outcome. from my point of view rule of law protects all of us including president trump including republicans. >> sean: you know something similar -- senator one of your finest moments in the cabinet h,
6:21 pm
it was interesting a lot of eye believers on the most outrageous allegation. we have serious allegations now about the attorney, i'm sorry lieutenant governor of the commonwealth of virginia, and violent sexual assault by two women. i don't hear the eye believers and i say donald trump gave every american $5 million tonight and the liberal agenda, they hate him, am i wrong? >> lindsey: you are right and it said. bipartisanship is to be nice to their people, both for their judges, set on the sidelines when destroy a trump judge. to give mueller space to do his job is not enough. when mueller gives an answer they don't like, they will destroy bill barr. bill barr is a fine man and will sleep well tonight. his critics are the problem and not him. >> sean: all right, senator thank you for being with us. by the way, i have no joy at all. and the law enforcement agency in the world, the 99.9%.

♪ >> >> sean: congressman mark meadows has now officially filed a criminal referral against nellie ohr over false testimony to congress and according to a new bombshell story from solomon, we now have more evidence of a backdoor channel between fusion gps, the department of justice. according to solomon's report
6:27 pm
during 2016 election, nellie ohr was feeding her clinton funded opt research to not leave her husband, but two other prosecutors inside the department of justice. which appears to directly conflict with house testimony last year. and lying to congress. here to explain -- explain it from the hill john solomon an investigative reporter and the russian hoax, and donald trump. fox news investigative reporter sara carter, either way, let me say to all three of you. that what barr confirmed today, it is over. the mueller report is over. he's not changing his mind, no collusion, no obstruction, but they did talk about criminal investigations into every single thing the three of you, i added a little bit myself, just a little. and we have two plus years on this program, i know, by the
6:28 pm
way, i'm not happy about it. this isn't good for the country. but it is imperative for the rule of law. john solomon let's go to ukraine issue. remember "new york times" piece to protect joe biden today because he literally held hostage american tax dollars as a means of browbeating the firing of the top law enforcement officials in ukraine who was investigating his own son. >> john: yeah come a few times, sean u.s. the mainstream media paying attention to this. i think we are beginning to see people pay attention to the two and a half year narrative. greg, sarah and myself have tried to report out because it was the fact and not because of an agenda but because facts. nice to sander news media and important developments in the story. i think today nellie ohr is a big sign of what is ahead. everybody who had contact for the justice department. everybody who perpetrated to steal the dossier.
6:29 pm
everybody who signed a fisa warrant. everybody who approved tactics against the president and his campaign during this investigation are now under scrutiny and attorney general barr made that clear today. i think there will be a lot of bad conduct in the next few months and i use the word unmasked with tongue and cheek. unmasking is one of the issues we have to get back to. everything that greg wrote about in his book come all the stories that sarah wrote about and i've been ready to write about at the helm, they are investigating in a serious way for the american people. and i could literally ask a billion questions but greg you watched a lot today. and i will throw it to you because basically cooperates the title, the substance of your book in a way that we all knew was true because we actually did the reporting. we actually checked the facts. we actually know what exists. >> that is right and the most
6:30 pm
important statement by william barr, we have to stop using the criminal justice system as a political weapon. and what he meant by that is all of the people at the fbi and department of justice who abuse their position of power first to clear hillary clinton and then to frame donald trump for something he didn't do. and barr vowed in no uncertain terms that he was going to examine not just a potential corruption in the hillary clinton email case in clearing her, but the origins of the trump russian investigation there was never any credible evidence started and then using christopher steele and yes, he said he will look into hillary clinton's payments for russian information to harm her political rival. though fisa abuse, lying to a fisa court. don't forget james comey stealing government documents and leaking them to unauthorized individuals. so i think the first thing that
6:31 pm
is going to happen in like 45 days is the inspector general's report. and i don't think it is possible that criminal referrals will not emanate from that. so people like james comey, mccabe, peter struck him a page, don't forget brennan, clapper. i think they are all in legal jeopardy now. >> we know from peter strzok and lisa page, this works into the attorney general under obama loretta lynch's office and frankly into the oval office, sarah but i will let your general comments go. >> sara: absolutely, sean they will look at expansive investigation into this. this is not just a fraud perpetrated on the foreign intelligence surveillance court. and the fisa abuse. this is a fraud against the american people. and against their vote for duly elected president. so what they will look at, everybody who played a role in here and all of the evidence that we, john, greg have and you
6:32 pm
have put out over the past few years, the connections with the people, the obama administration my let's bring up then roads. we just saw an interview with him with nicholas where ben rhodes said we knew nothing about what was going on. well ben rhodes, that was his job was to know what was going on. so right off of the bats come i think there is a conflict in his own statement. and certainly aware of the investigation. so i think he will be drawn back into this. i think the american people deserve answers and most importantly, gregg said and john said michael worrall bits will come out with his report. there will certainly be a criminal referral. >> sean: let me ask all three of you and ask a question and i applaud all of you. we all have a lot of work ahead of us. this will not be over a week, month, it will take a year but it's coming out. do you agree with my statement that the attornment -- the attorney general confirmed it's
6:33 pm
over. the mueller report is over and he really announced today that everything we have been reporting for two years is beginning. >> john: i 100% agree with that, act one of the collusion drama is over. there is a sideshow with all these hearings going on now but the next act of this drama will be the pfizer abuse and misuse of our intelligence community -- community. >> sean: the investigation? right? do you agree? >> gregg: i totally agree. you know, barr today said he seem appalled that trump was never given the offensive -- a briefing instead but the fbi decided to spy on spy on trump's trump campaign. >> sean: sarah, last point? >> sara: absolutely, the president of the united states did not conspire with russia. that is an absolute fact, did not and absolutely no obstruction. there was nothing to obstruct. now act 2 begins as john said to come at the investigation into the investigators. >> sean: part 2 begins and

stuff, no obstruction. what we need to find out now, sean how did we get here? how do we get to the place the fbi treating the president of the united states as a spy? they elected president? i will tell you why, because of contempt. people like peter strzok a top official of the fbi at the time had nothing but contempt and condescension for the people who voted for donald trump. they mock them, they look down on them. peter strzok doesn't want the people who voted for donald trump to actually have their votes count. that is why where we are where we are and we have to make sure this never happens again. >> sean: karl rove, the senator is right because of what i have been saying for a long time now that if we don't -- i e the fbi. my mom was a prison guard and my dad and all my cousins cops, two guys made it to the fbi. i don't want to talk about the few the fbi that did wrong so many the 99 percent do it all right. but if we don't get to the bottom of it, we have a serious

contact between american campaigns in russian operatives who provide material support to that campaign. well, what did christopher steele do with the money he was paid by the democratic national committee and the hillary clinton campaign? he goes in context kgb and fsb agents in moscow to say the do you have anything dirty to say about donald trump? >> sean: i think the evidence is overwhelming. hillary clinton violated espionage act. she had the intent when she deleted bleach bid my beat up devices with hammers and pulled sim cards. the intent for underlying espionage act. i believe the dossier, "new york times" might be onto something that russian disinformation. that was the bulk of information for fisa and one way to spy on the trump campaign and another, approaching papadopoulos, clovis and others. and page. and that to me would be fraud in

especially strip the clinton provided steele dossier. and he didn't and mueller did not resolve the obstruction charge. which is really the only thing arguably needed a special counsel for. barr put out a letter setting forth what the conclusions of the investigation were. and that letter made it obvious mueller advocated on the one thing he was needed for. mueller got a lot of criticism about that. and it upset him. so he obviously wrote a letter to barr complaining. but what he was complaining about was not barr's articulation but the media giving him a hard time. when you've been the subject of press for a couple of years and all of a sudden you are catching darts, it is upsetting. >> sean: you know, ken starr, great to see you. correct me if my memory is
6:52 pm
wrong, maybe i'm off here, but isn't it true that people like jerry nadler -- you worked under the old independent counsel statute. guys like jerry nadler didn't want the starr report coming out. another democrat, just recollection of maybe i'm wrong but i don't think i am. and didn't the democrats, aren't they the ones that wanted to change and get rid of the independent counsel law after impeachment? by the way, leavened specific crimes bill clinton committed? maybe i'm wrong. that you mention specifically. and they are the ones that gave permit the authority not to release anything. he didn't have to release one word. >> ken: that is exactly, that is exactly right. we have really gone back to the old regime of the independent counsel statute. and we had turned our back on that. right? we said no, we don't want that anymore. that was really a bad.
6:53 pm
21 years under the independent statute so 20 years sean, we've had a reasonable set of regulations. but bill barr said something interesting today, he said i overrode the regulations. he had the power and authority to do it, but the irony is, bill barr is being savaged even though he has on the side transparency just absolutely right about jerry nadler. when he was in the house of representatives, then as opposed to now, he was opposed to the release of the starr report. he was right then. why was he right? because it was high highly private material but nonetheless highly relevant to the houses consideration of the articles of impeachment. >> sean: how many specific crimes -- look i was right about nadler and i guess i got lucky. >> ken: the crimes that you talked about on clinton? >> sean: how many?
