you should watch this. we'll be back tomorrow. 8:00 p.m. the show that speaks sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and especially groupthink. good night fromm washington. sean hannity live from new york city right now. >> sean: tucker, great show. good to see you. welcome to "hannity." fox news alert tonight. the president now taking major action to secure our southern border. p just moments ago, announcing a brand-new tariff on mexico,, pressing this country now to stem the flow of migrants that are overwhelming our entire immigration system. we will have a lot more later in the program. first though tonight, the deep state is in a complete panic mode. the walls are closing in. we are now only days away, as we have been told by the attorney general, from the release of b major documents exposing the corruption at the highest levels of our government. remember, the attorney general said that he expects the inspector general horwitz to
report on fisa abuse any day. then of course we have the other four devastating buckets that we keep talking about, exposing what is the real election scandal two, one, robin election, and secondly, undermine a duly elected president. but first, as we told you last night, the russia hoax?, it's dead. it's buried. it's nonexistent. by the way, just hours after his nine and a half minute statement fueling democrats' hopes again of impeachment and more hysteria and by the supporting, robert mueller has now already backtracked. last night, the department of justice and the special counsel, they actually had to release a joint statement to correct what mueller said. in other words, mueller needed to walk back everything he said yesterday in a dramatic fashion because he totally contradicted everything that he had beeny saying.ma clarification, well, it wasn't exactly that. but it said this. "for the olc, office of legal
counsel's opinion, that mueller would have found the president obstructed justice. mueller's statement entirely consistent with the attorney general's previous remarks in spite of the media mob's coverage. remember, barr said that robert mueller told him over and over again and numerous other people heard it and explaining justert weeks ago, mueller stated three times to us in that meeting that he emphatically was not saying that but for the office of legal counsel's opinion, he would've found obstruction.he in other words, the justice department policy of whether you can or cannot indict a sitting president was never an issue,, period. what does this mean? the attorney general barr said today that mueller could've reached a conclusion as to whether there was any criminal activity, but he chose not to. take a look. >> i personally felt he could'vy reached a decision. >> in your view he could've reached a decision. >> he could've reached a conclusion.
the opinion says you can't indict a president while he is in office, but he could have reached a decision as to whether it was criminal activity. but he had his reasons for not doing it, which he explained. i'm not going to, you know, argue about those reasons. but when he didn't make a decision, the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein and i felt it was necessary for us as the heads of the department to reach that decision. >> sean: so the attorney general, by the way, that's because democrats wanted to get rid of the old independent counsel statute. that means the attorney general is the final arbiter. he made up his mind. along with the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein and the nonpartisan office of legal counsel. they were all crystal-clear. the media mob -- let me spell it out for you. zero findings that the president obstructed justice! none!
by the way, it had nothing to do with some justice department policy. not because of a legal, constitutional restriction, but because there was no evidence. now make no mistake. this is no cover-up, no case against the president, no collusion, no underlying crime, no intent, no obstruction. in other words, the opposite of hillary. of course, the radical, extreme socialist democrats, the rage trump media mob, they refused to focus in on the truth on this major issue. ask yourself this: why didn't the media mob report with the same intensity the release of the clarifying remarks of robert mueller after he botched it yesterday morning? why didn't they put the sameer passion in it as the nine and a half minutes of robert mueller? here's another question. why are they so lazy, so predicable, so partisan, why are they fake news? why do they feign moral outrage and then purposely fail to tell their viewers, as little as they
are, the truth?l how did they become so partisan, so political, so corrupt, that they refuse to answer simple questions and inform their viewers. t the clarification of mueller was massive. the correction was massive. so why did they choose to continue to peddle another round of lies and conspiracy theories and advance their hoax yet again? why did they choose to act as partisan hacks instead of serious journalists? by the way, 99.9% of newsrooms got it wrong. it's the talk show hosts, we do straight news, we do opinion, but we are honest about it, and even sports and culture. they say they are objective. they are anything but. but why are they choosing to pus fake news narratives over the facts that after two plus years of lying and choosing to relentlessly smear, slander,
besmirch anybody who dares to question their lack of ethics and now objectivity. look at this tonight. "the new york times"? they are now scared, taking notice, and they are realizing, uh-oh, they've been duped by the conspiracy tv media mob. look at this new report. "new york times" is warning editors and reporters against appearing on prime time shows on fake news cnn and conspiracy tv msnbc. why would the "new york times" not go on their favorite programs? who refused to ask tough questions to begin with, like, did robert mueller forget his previous statements in yesterday's remarks, or did he intentionally muddy the watersy' to fuel the democrats' unrelenting impeachment w rage psychosis? now the president is standing strong, not letting himself be a punching bag, taking direct aim at the former special counsel as he should, and his partisan witch hunt.
let's take a look. >> robert mueller should've never been chosen. because he wanted the fbi job and he didn't get it and the next day he was picked as special counsel. so you tell somebody, i'm sorry, you can't have the job. and then you after you say that, he's going to make a ruling on you? it doesn't work that way. i think mueller is a true never trumper, somebody who dislikes donald trump. and despite $40 million, 18 trump haters, including people who worked for hillary clinton and some of the worst human beings on earth, they got nothing. it's pretty amazing. >> sean: the president, he didn't stop there. calling out the special counsel more than a conflict of interest, writing "robertt mueller came to the oval office seeking to be named director of the fbi. he was already in that position for 12 years, i told him no. next day, he was named special
counsel, a total conflict of interest." the president is right. here's the big take away from all of this. robert mueller, i'm telling you, is scared to death to testify. why? he'd have to answer real tough questions from people like congressman jim jordan, congressman mark meadows, congressman devin nunes, and others. by the way, devin nunes will be here in just moments.ss he would be afraid to answer questions like, "mr. mueller, when did you know there was no collusion? by the way, if you had all this time to investigate fara violations, taxi medallions, loan applications,de decades old taxing returns, how did you have no time to investigate the origins of hillary clinton's dirty russian dossier which was used to commit a premeditated fraud on the fisa court, undermine a duly elected president after an attempt to steal an election?"
of course disseminate russian lies to the american people and spy on the trump campaign, which as "the new york times" reported, that dossier was likely russian disinformation from the very beginning. by the way, mr. mueller, why did you hire a team of partisan democrats, not a single republican -- you couldn't find one? no one? why would you ever hire a guy, your pit bull, by the name of andrew weissmann, a guy who has a horrific history of abuse of power. remember sydney powell's book, "license to lie," withholding exculpatory evidence. weissmann was at the hillary clinton election night, the party that never happened. why would you hire the hillary clinton lawyer, jeannie rhee? how could he in good faith ignore the single biggest abuse of power, corruption scandal in modern political history which, by the way, had to do with the russian lies and their attempt to steal an election in 2016?
judicial watch's tom fitton, he is fighting back in a huge way. tonight, he is calling for action on mueller's attack on the rule of law for turning it on its head and abandoning long-held prosecutorial norms. by the way, don't forget about his cozy relationship with the super patriot james comey. smelly walmart shoppers that hate trump, like us. the hate trump democrats, they still don't care. it happens every single second of every single second of every single hour of every single day. they're on a mission, they want to take down the president at all costs. doesn't matter how great of a job he's doing. it wouldn't matter if he cured cancer. every single waking moment a public trial against the president. the president has not only been successful, but under the worst conditions that any president has had to start the presidency
under, regardless of facts,or truth, reality. people that have no agenda to make us more safe, more prosperous, more secure. has any democrat talked about that recently? no plan for america's future,ra our kids, our grandkids, no plan to grow the economy, make jobs, make us energy independent. no plan to solve the crisis at our border. no plan to make us stronger abroad. and you've got this pathetically weak field of 2020 radicals. they spend their time incoherently rambling about how much they hate the president and the new green deal which willl eliminate the combustion engine, oil and gas, cows and airplanes. gee, can't wait. everything else will be free. the collusion hoax is dead and finished, in spite of all the noise you hear, it's done. four separate investigations, four, and all of them found -- fbi, nine month investigation, house intel investigation,
bipartisan senate investigation, and the mueller report, four of them, no conspiracy collusion. and we now know from mr. mueller's retraction, absolutely no consideration of the department of justice policy as whether you can or cannot indict a sitting president. here with reaction, judicial watch president, tom fitton, and fox news contributor sara carter. tom, we begin with you. tell us what you are now looking for. >> mueller turned out to be a partisan. you would have thought he was above the fray, but his pressth conference or press event this week showed that he's out for trump, suggested he's a crook and needs to be impeached without basis. he took this approach that he may have committed a crime, i'm not sure. but i cannot prove he's innocent, which turns the rule
of law on its head, as you know. people like president trump are presumed innocent and to suggest otherwise from the podium of the justice department is a wild abuse of power. that's the "alice in wonderlandd approach to justice. verdict first, sentence first, verdict later. he wants to sentence him to impeachment? this is inappropriate for the justice department to be doing. certainly an official. there needs to be an ethics investigation in what went on with that statement and, frankly, an ethics audit of the entire mueller operation, because, as you laid out, there are serious concerns about the way mueller operated that team there and what they did in terms of the early morning -- >> sean: weissmann, jeannie rhee, no republican investigators at all. i want mr. mueller to testify before jim jordan and mark meadows. i want these questions answered. i don't think he has the courage to do it.fo >> did he interview himself?ns
as the president mentioned? did he interview himself as part of this obstruction investigation related to the comey firing? he's a witness! >> sean: he speaking out of both sides of his mouth. i understand your point. let me go to sara carter. let's go to this clarification. robert mueller went into this long, drawn out, nine and a half minutes. we couldn't consider it because of justice department policy until the department of justice, the attorney general, and the special counsel's office, had to say, oops, we said the opposite in the past a number of times. sorry about that. of course the media ignores it. >> this is what's going on here, sean.. this is talking to sources and just common sense. they are deflecting. they absolutely know that president trump did not commit a conspiracy, there was no obstruction. but they have to focus on that. they have to push everything in that direction because now the attorney general and the department of justice have a magnifying glass on all of these
former obama officials who basically violated the law froma what we can see based on the evidence that's out there already, evidence that we've already seen. remember, there's so much more evidence that we haven't seen yet. so much more information. they basically violated the law, there was malfeasance within the fbi. you have james comey, john brennan, clapper, mccabe, lisa page. peter strzok. others who were involved, and you have the group of bureaucrats. otremember, they are the ones ty are done. they are no longer in their positions of power, but you have people who were part of their group that are still trying to protect them. and that's exactly what mueller is doing. when mueller went out and gave that nine and a half minute rambling speech to kind of rally up the democrats, he did that on purpose. they are now fighting for their lives. they are fighting to stay afloat. because they know that they could be charged.
>> sean: the clarification contradicted everything he said. >> absolutely. they had to come out and clarify, but mueller is a smart man.in mueller knew exactly what he was saying when he went up there and did that. what he didn't count on is he has attorney general william barr who will not back down publicly. he is willing to take him on publicly. so of course he had to back down from that and say, okay, throw up in my hands in the air now, that's exactly what i had to say. >> he came out and gave us a fault statement.y. he gave a false statement. he said he didn't indict the president because of the opinion. who was behind that statement? was at andrew weissmann and his staff? >> sean: the words that came out of his mouth were dumb. you have to blame the guy who spoke them. reading from a prompter or some paper, but we'll get to the bottom of it. >> it's a big conspiracy, sean.e believe you me. >> sean: thank you, sir. joining us now, house intelligence committee t republican congressman devin nunes. it is now inevitable,
congressman.n. it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. we have talked about five separate buckets. we talked about the fisa applications, 303s, exculpatory evidence, more. now the president the classifieds, the game changer, the ig report, and mr. durham, and john huber, and the attorney general. tell us what you see unfolding and when. >> i want to start to make sure what mueller did yesterday, i thought you did a pretty good job but people forget one important point. mueller tried to do this a victory lap.t he tried to talk about the russians they found, the russians they prosecuted.. i want to remind people that the house republicans on the intelligence committee had that over a year ago. and mueller, if he's so concerned about these russians, why did they obstruct our report from getting out? so our report is still heavily redacted, sean.
>> sean: can the president declassify that? >> so mueller -- exactly right, he lit the fuse. the president can declassify that, too. you ask about what you come first? i think the thing that should come first is, number one, we still don't even know what mueller was supposed to be investigating. we do not have that document.we we know that he's talked about conspiracy to collude. well, when he walked in the door, he knew there was no evidence of collusion. we know that because the lead investigator said so on text messages. he was so blatantly dishonest yesterday that he says, well, the office of legal counsel says that you can't indict a sitting president.es b well, he should have been gone after day two. he has no russians, except for the fusion and clinton russians, and possibly the dirty cops at the fbi russians. that's the only russians he has to show connections to the mueller campaign. clearly the clinton operation is heavily working with russians or russian disinformation. he didn't take time to look into any of that. and you have this, he comes and
says, well, there is no possibility to indict the president on obstruction of justice. you just have to ask yourself, sitting back thinking about it, what was that press conference all about yesterday?onon y >> sean: what was that? answer your own question. >> it was one thing. to light the fuse. light the fuse for impeachment. because these guys are in big trouble. another important point -- >> sean: wait a minute, he had to clarify about that joint statement. what does that mean? >> well, that was barr actually being a grown-up and had to remind mueller, we have you on the record three different timed saying that you were -- you didn't have enough information to indict on obstruction. it had not to do with the position of the office of legal counsel.or but there is another important point that i think people should remember about, and i think that you have comey with diarrhea of the mouth in "the washington
post." he a supposedly new about the dirt on clinton. >> sean: the professor in england. >> yes, the professor. he called them a russian asset. remember, in the mueller dossier, mueller stopped short of calling him a russian asset. the former fbi director who started this investigation can't even get full communication with the mueller dossier people. just to finish up and put a final point on this, you were just talking about this in your monologue, weissmann and another attorney there handled the steele dossier in august of 2016.rn are you kidding me? these are high-level people. bruce ohr, andrew weissmann, and other attorny who worked on the mueller dossier team, they are looking at this very salacious and unverified information and not one of themu sits there and says, where does this come from, bruce ohr? where did this come from? oh, my wife is doing it. my wife is working for fusion gps, working for the democrats
and the clinton campaign. the whole thing, it's so serious but you want to laugh, but at the same time you hope that justice is actually served to these criminals. >> sean: if you listen to the attorney general when he went before senator graham's committee, is he interested wanting to get to the bottom of the fisa abuse? we know that bruce ohr, behind closed doors, testified, he warned everybody that hillary paid for it, steele hates trump. by the way, it's unverified. that was in august of 2016. ten days before, an state department official also warned them before comey signed off on the first suite and application. it says verified but it's anif unbearable document because christopher steele doesn't stand by his own words. are those people going to be held accountable?. do you see any way they get out of what i would think is an
indictment to commit fraud on a fisa court, an indictment to literally rig an investigation in their favorite candidate, hillary clinton, and to use russian lies to take down a duly elected president? can they get away with that? >> well, i think the easiest thing to prosecute on are the leaks, the lies, and obstructing congress's investigation. what i will say in closing, if you look at what has happened in this whole investigation, you've got a lot of areas for the department of justice to look at. do not forget the state department.rt the dirty cops in the state department and whoever from the clinton campaign working with the dirty cop to get information from russia. >> sean: you've seen this information. would it be fair to say that when the american people have seen what you have seen, it will shock the conscience and soul of this country? >> i always say, on the fisa application especially, you heard comey call it a mosaic. people need to see what's there.
i think that they would cringe if they knew what the government was willing to do to its. citizens. >> sean: thank you, congressmen. we appreciate it. when we come back, the president's attorney rudy giuliani live in the studio later. by the way, lawrence jones hits the streets in portland. a first hand look at the city's homeless crisis. amazing, in every liberal city in the country. straight ahead. ♪ when we started our business

have. >> sean: that's the attorney general william barr discussing the actions of the doj officials who launched this russia probe. as we have been telling you, there are serious repercussions coming for those for those nefarious, deep state, upper echelon actors -- by the way, not rank-and-file. just this morning, famed watergate journalist bob woodward poured cold water on the democrats' hopes and dreams of impeachment. watch this. >> i hate to go back to watergate, but you had those thousands of hours of tape recordings where you heard the president say, let's obstruct justice. let's pay blackmail money. let's lie, let's stonewall the grand jury. that raised the bar on how you deal with the president. and at this point, we do not have that kind of evidence involving trump. >> sean: as a matter of fact, you have zero evidence. joining us now, former new york city mayor and the
president's attorney, rudy giuliani. mr. mayor, good to see you. mueller makes this big splash yesterday. everybody ignores that he had to clarify and everything he said in that nine and a half minute period was not true. in terms of -- i couldn't look at it because of justice department policy. he said to numerous people on numerous occasions that was not the consideration. >> he actually said it in the report.on first few pages of the report, he said, i cannot include obstruction of justice.rt end of story. that's when a prosecutor stops. this whole thing about it, i can't exonerate him, it's made up by these completely perverted prosecutors who somehow want donald trump to prove his innocence. he actually can, in many cases. but he's not required to provehe your innocence, because you cannot prove a negative.re they have completely reversed american law and the media lets
them get away with it. you want me to answer why they didn't cover the retraction which basically says things like that? because they are dishonest. they are corrupt and the president is absolutely right. the people who do that are the enemies of the people because what they are doing is they are perpetuating a complete lie. it's the reason why they won't cover ukraine. if donald trump jr. got 1.5 million from the chinese, do you not think we'd go crazy? >> sean: in this case, joe biden the father? >> $1.5 billion from china for a start up private equity fund while the old man was giving us away to china. >> sean: he was flying an air force two. >> he flew the kid there. >> sean: he had no background in that field. >> he got tossed out of the military for being a drug addict and they give him 1.5 billion in china because of his expertise?f that they give it to him because
what they did to the islands, tariffs, sold us out so the kid could get 1.5 billion? they are not covering that? you tell me these people are honest? they are figuring out if donald trump got a parking ticket 20 years ago and they do not cover 1.5? what about 5 million from one of the most crooked people in ukraine while joe was doling out money to ukraine. then joe bribes the president of ukraine. >> sean: he says, you have six hours, fired the prosecutor that's investigating his son, or i'm leaving with america's money. >> the money that would have the country go under. remember, it was not just 1.2 billion. as if that's not a lot of money. they were going to defaultt without that 1.2 billion. they were desperate.au didn't want to fire the guy. he's the godfather of the guy'ss kid.od he did it because he was extorted. that's the crime, joe. extorted. by the way, when he took the money from ukraine, we call that, under all laws, bribery. bribery?
not some ridiculous obstruction where there is no underlying crime. here, we've got the money, we've got the pressure, we've got the result, you've got the officiale action, offering money or withholding money for an official action is the classical common-law crime of bribery. and the dishonest press will not cover it. that's why when the president says they are dishonest, when he says they are corrupt, and says they are the enemy of the people, they are proving it. >> sean: they have lied o repeatedly, knowingly, purposely for two years. you said this about mueller. i dare robert mueller to testify.fo i do, too. why did he hire that team, when did he know there is noe collusion, why did he ignore the dirty russian dossier?th i have a lot of questions for him. >> i watched him yesterday for nine minutes. i saw a man read -- he didn't give a statement, he read a statement haltingly with ain little stumbling.

♪ >> sean: fox news alert, president trump is taking a bold stand on mexico and illegal immigration. fox news correspondent trace gallagher, he is alive tonight from the west coast new room with the very latest. this is important because mexico has power and they are not helping us. trace? >> the president is making it very clear, if congress won't act, he's taking matters into his own hands, breaking right now the trump administration just announced, beginning june 10th, the u.s. will oppose
a 5% tariff on all goods imported from mexico. the tariffs want to be removed 'tuntil the mexican government takes dramatic action to reduce and eliminate illegal immigrants crossing the border. this is not being framed as a trade battle but rather an immigration battle. advisory says if mexico does not act fast, the tariffs will continue to rise until they hit 25% on october 1st. some critics believe this could undermine the passage of u.s.-mexico-canada trade agreement. the move comes a day after 1,000 illegal immigrants were apprehended by border patrol agents near el paso. that's the largest single apprehension of migrants ever. the group include people from guatemala, el salvador, and honduras. the border stations are already overwhelmed with the influx of migrant families and border patrol agents can't patrol the border because they are feeding and care for those families. >> sean: trace gallagher, thank you with that report.
here with reaction to all the breaking news, fox news contributor dan bongino. fox news correspondent at large geraldo rivera.ng it's really simple. mexico, up until fairly recently, had the most draconian laws about illegal immigrants from central american. you either went to jail or they deported you. there was no in between. now, they are letting the caravans come up here. they have a responsibility. if they want to be our partners to stop it on their end and they are not. >> i don't know, i'm not an expert enough on the economics of a tariff, whether that's in a punitive measure you employ to get mexico to cooperate. but i think what is clear, seanc you know, i'm all for compassion and i believe immigration is a net positive for the country.ti but i think no one can look at these pictures of a thousand and one in a single day, in a single hour crossing the border and feel that inaction is an option. so we have to do something.
mexico has to be your partner. >> sean: of those thousands of people, there is one that comes in with bad intentions, that wee do not vet, we are not serving the american people well. it's that simple. we have a right to vet and the right to demand that if you are coming here, you have to be able to take care of yourself. >> my feeling is that those kinds of economic issues generally tend to work themselves out. if you have 11 million undocumented people, and once in a while, some bad actor does s some bad things, what if it's a city of 11 million? you would expect something like that. the thing that i emphasize, ands one of my missions in life and you know that i have several, is to portray this group as the positive traditional force, a compassionate patriotic person -- >> sean: do you want a wall with a door? >> yes. >> sean: a regal, perfect. i don't care where you come from. be a part of our family and treat us with respect. d
we treat everybody with respect. dan bongino? >> yeah, sean. here's what i don't understand. treat them with respect? we've taken in millions of immigrants from all over the world who decided to come here legally, raise their right hand, follow the rules, and pledge allegiance to the united states, and thank god for those people. but, geraldo, compassion is not a public policy! you cannot just say that and magically wave a wand and make these problems go away. we are compassionate. that is not a accurate thing to say -- "we need to be compassionate," one, it doesn'te solve anything, two, it doesn't take into account the context of the entire immigration picture in the country right now. people who want to come here, there is a process. if you disregard the process, you can't come here. that's as simple as that. >> sean: let me go to robert mueller yesterday and the clarification. the media breathless, hysteria. oh, we get to relive our conspiracy for one more day.
but the clarification is massive. which is he had said on numerous occasions to numerous people that this justice department policy had no sway in thede decision, that there was no evidence, the deputy attorney general, attorney general, the office of legal counsel made this decision. that's what the statute calls for. >> the first thing i thought of if he had picked william barr to be his original attorney general rather than senator jeffil sessions, the president would've had a tenth of the problems t he had. >> sean: he wouldn't had any of this garbage. >> he would've had none. barr is so matter of fact, so disciplined in his approach, his grasp of the laws, regulation, and the record is so spot on that he really helped them. >> sean: dan? >> what he did yesterday, mueller, sean, is disgraceful. i can't believe how other networks are giving him a pass.
>> sean: what do you mean you can't believe it? they peddle lies and conspiracies every second, every minute, every hour of every day! that's all they do. >> it so transparently obvious what he did. not not guilty is not a standard to impugn someone's character in a press conference where you spend the first five minutes off a nine minute press conference saying how russians you went after, this literally happened, are entitled to the presumption of innocence, you go and relitigate a case against the president? you were never as a prosecutor willing to try and didn't have the guts to try?e it's an abomination of justice! how do we, even the biggest trump haters in the world, not see that? >> sean: good to see you both. congratulations on your golf tournament, by the way. he raises a lot of money every year. he has transformed how this country treats those that have mental health issues. >> we are united in that. >> sean: 100%.
♪ >> sean: tonight, a new report. liberal cities are in crisis. we sent our own lawrence jones to investigate what's going on in that city, just like san francisco, just like l.a., and just like ocasio-cortez's district. take a look. >> portland. it seems like there may be a homeless problem? would you agree? >> maybe is a little bit of an understatement. but yeah.
speak of the situation in portland is very bad. the police aren't able to do their jobs. >> what do you see? >> what do i see? i see a city not doing enough. i see the entire west coast not doing enough. if you've been to the bay area, it's worse. here it's pretty bad. >> people are being allowed to do whatever they want. the people who live in the cityp are victims.o >> i see the streets more congested with tents, people, congregating around corners. it's changed the way, an individual woman, where i might feel the line to be more thoughtful. >> i see a lot of drug -- a lot of homeless guys asked me if i wanted some drugs. >> what kind of drugs do you sem most homeless people in portland associate with? >> meth and heroin. >> you find a lot of needles. you see a lot of interactions happening on the streets. >> it's easy to be home was down there. it's easy to do it. i sometimes feel like -- i look homeless right now because i just got off the streets like two weeks ago. it was really just getting up and doing it for myself. a lot of people don't want to do that.
>> sean: joining us with reaction, fox news contributor emily compagno, and former florida attorney general pam bondi. pam, it's interesting. when you go to san francisco, a mile from the beautiful gated wall of nancy pelosi and a mile to the district from her office, you have people -- feces all over the street, needles everywhere, homelessness everywhere. why wouldn't she, a multi-multimillionaire, ask her millionaire friends to build the shelter? >> exactly. she's behind her gated community. that she's against for our country. but behind her gated community. so no. you know, sean, it's gonna hurt kids, kids are going to get hurt.s she has to know that with hypodermic needles, the drug issues, the homelessness. >> sean: the kid who slid into second base and slid into a needle? >> yeah, it's unreal. these poor people have mental
health issues, called dual diagnosis, they take drugs, they need mental health counseling, drug treatment and all her rich friends can build shelters instead of putting bathrooms to keep the feces off the streets. that makes no sense. >> sean: how about a shelter that has bathrooms, showers, two meals a day, maybe some mental health counseling? >> a true shelter. exactly. they need drug treatment, mental health. the city of oregon, the mayor gave $32 million in his budget towards it, that's where it needs to go for but not just setting bathrooms on the street where kids -- you know, people with mental health issues can be dangerous to children. >> sean: emily, i always say this. liberals are very generous witha our money. but when it comes to their own money, if it's a mile away from nancy pelosi's house and office and the other direction, and it's always happening in these big cities, where is the compassion they lecture us about when they want every penny we make?
>> exactly. the irony is that the war over this competing compassionate approach to the homelessness problem means that it's paralyzing these cities, right? it's wasting our tax dollars. for example, seattle spends $100,000 for each of its 12,000 homeless. the city of portland is now allocating $32 million up from $15 million, two years ago, that's where it is. police were discouraged of making arrests of any homeless related crime. when a self a self designated socialist, by the way, brought up mental health institutions, he was called a "nazi." the sufferers are not only those homeless, 80% of whom are drug
addicted and mentally ill, the constituents whose tax dollars are being wasted and unable to use their parks. >> sean: get your legal thoughts on what we now see happening with robert mueller yesterday and the clarification, because he outright lied in the nine and a half minutes. >> i'm so glad you asked me that. there was no collusion, theree was no crime. had there been, he would've put it in his report. you know that, i know that, the president knows that, rudy giuliani knows that, and the american people know that. for him to come out and say at this point was really politicizing everything. >> sean: good to see you. thank you for being with us. emily, thank you as always. when we come back, more "hannity" right after this. ♪
