for her, for you, for the whole family. new vicks vapopatch. breathe easy. have a great weekend asalways. tucker carlson is up next. ♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome >> welcome to tucker girls tonight the end of impeachment week one the public hearings began this week in washington. democrats kicked off the spectacle on wednesday by driving out a procession of state department functionaries each explain how deeply upsetting it has been to watch an elected president control america's foreign-policy. interestingly, none of them eys they'd seen the president commi any sort of actual wrongdoing. much the same story today. the star witness was the former ambassador to yovanovitch, who was dismissed from her job earlier this year.
she was testifying at an impeachment hearing, so the onl question on the table was and remains, has donald trump committed crimes that would justify his removal as presiden of the united states. fairly early on, yovanovitch said unequivocally that as far as he knows he has not. >> do you have any information regarding the president of the united states accepting any bribes? ar no. >> do you have any information regarding any criminal activity that the president of the unite states has been involved with a all? >> no. >> there you have it for a no evidence of any kind that the president was involved in criminal activity was her answer . it should have been the last thing she said today. everything after that was a waste of our time in a country with so many problems that time wasting is as soon. and yet, marie yovanovitch kept going and going and going. by the end that sounded like a therapy session or an extended
meeting with the hr department. the real offense turned up to b wounding the of north american ambassador brett. >> just like that, you had to leave ukraine as soon as possible? >> has. >> had that make you feel? >> terrible, honestly. after 33 years of service to ou country, it was terrible. >> how did that make you feel? that israel question. if you had to have what color would it be? it went on like this for hours. prayed c-span meets the shrink 's office. >> without upsetting you too to show you the excerpts from the call and the first one, where president trum says the former ambassador from the united states, the woman wa bad news.ad
so i just want to let you know. what was your reaction when you heard the president of the united states referred to you a bad news? >> i couldn't believe it. again, shocked, appalled, devastated that the president o the united states would talk about any ambassador like that to a foreign head of state. and it was me. i couldn't believe it. >> without upsetting you too much. i was shocked. appalled, and devastated that someone would criticize me prayed i couldn't believe it. keep in mind this is the person to represent our country's interest in one of th roughest regions in the world. to shocked, appalled, it's pretty embarrassing embarrassing . in fact it's kind of scary. who is doing the screening, how many other neurotics hold t ambassador rank. before anybody could ask that vital question, he rattled the witness stills more.
>> as we said here testifying the president is attacking you on twitter. and i'd like to give you a chance to respond, i will read part of one of his tweets. t everywhere, maria yovanovitch went and turned bad perigee started off in somalia, how did that go, and now the president in real time is attacking you. what effect do you think that has on other witnesses willingness to come forward and expose wrongdoing. >> it's very intimidating. >> i want to let you know ambassador, that some of us here , take witness intimidation very very seriously. >> very intimidating. witness intimidation. that is apparently what it's called now when someone criticizes your job performance in a tweet. it's just terrifying. in the same country, someone might step in, it may be someon in the media to identify this for what it a is.
but washington is no longer saf so instead msnbc spent all day praising her as a victim of trump's terror. this is a witness who is there as a victim. >> if you walk in her shoes, th country she has gone to, the loneliness. >> she is such a soft speaker, it really demands the attention of all these lawmakers brett. >> our working against this state department hero. >> the state department historically over the last l several years has not exactly been where you go to find all the powerful women in washington . usually it was a lot of men. a lot of white men. i'm so proud of her. every woman in america who has fought in nel dominated career should cheer for this woman today. i can get choked up when i thin about what this woman has given.
>> while. did you hear that, this state department a lot of men, a lot of white men and that's the worst kind of men according to accredited moron and open racis claire mccaskill.or nothing like those horrible white men msnbc would like you to know, she was at the very opposite end of the moral spectrum. somewhere between gandhi and you're average teeth teenage swedish climate activist ray jesus sort of person in fact an they told us this on cnn that i is a gift to know t. >> remarkably poised, remarkabl credible. >> this woman has ice in her veins, she's got a spine of steel. she laid out inin brilliant det who she was which i was not was remarkable testimony. >> boy she was a powerful witness. i was appointed by ronald reagan . i had done this for years.
i tried to fight the bad guys. one of the gifts of the job is when you meet these people when you travel the world. >> in this age of trump, i am genuinely shocked by his behavior with regard to this foreign service officer of thre decades. to disparage her, to demean her and selfless overtones seeing the woman over there. she made a mockery of his if dismissals of the deep stage. if this is a deep state, a lot of americans looked up and said i'll take more of that. >> that's right, americans, can't get enough. let's invest even more power of officials who live for a living. >> is been enough time in oulmart or denny's you will hea people say that out loud. americans are sick of this democracy thing. at the same time, americans alsa despise sexism which if you wanr a precise definition means any
criticism of a woman who is currently serving the interest of the democratic party. attacking kelly and conway, that's not sexism which is why they could do it yesterday ayde cnn. criticizing her for her work product, that is sexism. got it? onto lesson number two that we learn today. with donald trump has done in the ukraine is bribery, how exactly is it bribery? it just is, it's bribery. listen to the geniuses explained . >> it seems that the president of the united states committed extortion or bribery of a foreign official or attempted extortion and bribery of a foreign official. >> the testimony corroborated evidence of bribery birdcage each right to use that word, it is bribery. >> ithey're are any number of impeachable offenses. brett give the american people will hear of bribery, extortion. the president using his office for personal gain.
>> this is a strong case of bribery. >> it looks like they have a ne word. bribery.g there is no case for bribery, that's when they started using the word bribery this week afte running the whole thing through a focus group and finding out that bribery was the scariest possible description of something they won't actually define. whatever, systemic don't matter. everyone knows, democrats decided on the punishments, they've been looking for it eve since. the proud state of texas in the house of representatives which is currently impeaching the president enjoins us tonight. what did you think. here you have the press telling us that the ambassador, who was undone by relatively mild criticism from the presidents. she was chocked, appalled, but how does that work? >> it's amazing. you know, to had adam schiff
tell her, oh my gosh,id the president just tweeted about you , i think it was to intimidate you, well, the only way the president could have been intimidating the witness i if adam schiff was a co-conspirator in the intimidation because if he just shut his mouth, she would never have even known and it could ha no effect on her whatsoever. for heaven sake, to hear all these liberal to hear them talking about these white guys in the state department. they're are a liberal white guy and they hate donald trump, and actually there were about 70 people thatas we're on the list that was given and it included the two staffers that ended up going to work into and giving all the advice to they call him
a u whistleblower, he's not und the statue. a more gossip monger in chief and the deputy assistant gossip monger, they consult with those two staffers that have been wit and you might say there was actually a cell from intel, state, but when the president made that call on july 25th, the noose was closing in on n these people because he was going to get evidence of the corruption that involved ukrain as well is the united states an their effort to affect our election. that's when the gossip monger i chief goes to adam schiff's staff. he didn't come up with the idea of the whistleblower, his staff did. it also help rides and project rejection for a little while. the noose was closing in, and
the thing that the state department people were really ticked off about, this presiden quit talking about helping ukraine, and actually send them lethal weapons they could use t defend themselves that infuriated taylor. you can see in his comments,. >> is there a reason that we ar starting a war between ukraine and russia, why are we picking ukraine side of the war against russia,, i don't understand tha at all. what's in it for us? >> we do have an interest in seeing that russia doesn't keep expanding and taking in other countries and frankly the only reason they invaded crimea, i a sick of listening to it of that in the hearing of trump wasn't helping.
you know, the reason that crime was invaded was because obama and clinton had to go over ther with a red plastic button with the wrong russian word on it, but they wanted to reset come, but the message that he got ver clearly was luke, we know bush overreacted when you invadedhe, georgia and he did all the thes sanctions welcome what we want reset. we won't overreact when you that's the message he got and that's why crimea was invaded. >> totally fine with me. it has no effect on america as far as i'm concerned. thank you so much. >> the bottom line is the state department doesn't like them. >> that is true. i agree with that. >> the last three days have madt it obvious that impeachment is not about what it's it they say it's about it's a policy madisagreement i retired u.s. a
colonel joins us, so,"m please in the way that you do better than anyone i know ukraine into some context for us. we should care about them sniping with russia because why? >> can i say one thing? you never publicize private conversation between heads of state. you don't do it. and now we know why. they are widely misinterpreted, twisted, not understood, and they create bad relations between the two states. if we were to publicize all the private conversations between jfk and christian for over eisenhower,en any of the heads state of the last 3040 years. it would probably be devastatin in their content to most people. >> so why are we doing that? could get you heard we gomer take about the man he is not a whistleblower at all, he actually has a very checkered past that i think will come out over the next couple weeks straight i think you'll hear a lot from the pfizer report when that is published.
it will clarify some of the points that louis just made. we'll discover this is another attempt to remove the president of the united states yet again. if you can't remove him, at least damage him in some way between now and the election. that's important to understand upfront bright i have to hand i to the democrats because this i beautifully staged managed performance by yovanovitch. this is a christlike figure wing c crucified by the satanic man in the white house. that was the game that was played.. what we got out of it was he didn't commit any crimes, he hasn't done anything wrong at least as far as she knows what she was unhappy that she was removed from office. >> he hurt her feelings, she wa clear about that. i was watching cnn and msnbc today and i she is a u.s. ambassador,ri you can't critici or. >> as far as ukraine is
concerned, the people that preceded donald trump and offic have been absolutely insistent from day one that ukraine must become part of nato. the reason for the invasion of crimea was the conviction in moscow that this was going to happen. that then would become crimea would be a base from nato. that never comes up for discussion. >> why would we do that? >> why did we bring in white every brought in bulgaria? >> they're are people at the state departmentst pushing the united states to war against russia. >> they don't think they're pushing it toward work because theyey don't think the russians will go to war which is where i think they're wrong. i think there is a redline out there and we're very close to i right the russians, whether we like it or not or probably more paranoid than the left in the united states. they are quite capable of striking back at us. hopefully not on the nuclear level,no but it's real.
this is another reason why the whole ukraine business needs to be treated differently. the first thing we do do is announce that they're not going to be a part of nato. let's sit down and find a solution that will work for barth russians in ukraine. i think that's what they really want. >> thank you very much. more on tonight's hearing comin up, ambassador ctu had nothing to do with the. he faces the rest of his life i prison. we will speak with his daughter after the break. don't miss our weekly news quiz we have it tonight just ahead.
>> every day it see >> tucker: every day it seems like the last session with race gender, and sexual orientation, things that don't change is getting more intense and weird. so bad ethat they can't even s themselves even while trying to impeach the president. instead of a exposing high crimes and misdemeanors, the impeachment hearing somehow ended up being a fable a moral fable about gender. the washington post is in this had lynford trump, the testimon brings a moment of reckoning on gender. members of congress agreed with the process. >> i have four little girls in my life, and i sit here thinkin about them and asom a woman i
could not be more proud of you consider you and inspiration fo women. what is the of the witness have to do about impeachment. she should be insulted that she was being treated in any way different for the men that testified on wednesday. she was treated differently, th stories about her were different . as a federal prosecutor, the jury treated me differently. actually maybe they were a little harder on me than they were the male prosecutors, but it's not like i could cry and somehow i could make my argumen better or more accessible.
it decades when you're talking about equality, then treat me equally. i do not need to be treated wit kid gloves and i do not need someone trying to get me to try on demand. it is insulting. >> it also doesn't seem materia exactly. if the question is is trump rud sometimes, well yes, and okay, but that's not an impeachable offense, nobody claims it is. for this hearing is designed we are told to discuss whether or not he committed a high crime o misdemeanor sufficient to be removed from office. so her being a woman, that's a non sequitur, that's not relevant at all, is it? >> it isn't relevant. president trump insults everyone , he insulted john mc cain after he was dead. i routinely get insulted i wrotf a column this morning for the hill and i was called a bimbo i
the comment section. do i expect someone to say they're sorry and pat me on the head or treat me differently? it's ridiculous and insulting. it has nothing to do with tryin to impeach and remove the president of the united states. frankly, ambassador yovanovitch should object to this treatment of her. >> this is a u.s. ambassador on of the roughest regions in the world, she spent a lot of the day telling us how much her feelings we're hurt by a naught tweet.ou it did not make you confident i the state department, not that have any confidence anyway. great to see you tonight. >> in the impeachment continues onoo capitol hill the democrati party's previous attempt, continues into continues to destroy lives the trump advisor roger stone was found guilty today of witness tampering, lying to congress, and another charge. lying to congress, they can't b charged with lying to you come
up which they do every day, but if you misspeak, and you got th wrong political sympathies, you could for the rest of their lif in prison. in case you were incident certain, stone is 67 at threat to no one, prosecutors still sought to have him imprisoned until a sentencing in february. he is gagged and can't even speak about his conviction in public or else they will send him to jail immediately. instead, we are happy to be joined by his daughter. she joins us tonight. thank you so much for coming on. have i misstated that, that you dad is not allowed somehow unlike everybody else in the country to talk about what happened today? >> absolutely. i can't either. the gag order spreads to the xt family and his friends. it's been extremely isolating. and has had a chilling effect not being able to share with other people what is going on and what we see.
>> on what grounds, are you, yo haven't even been accused of a crime much less convicted of one . how can judge, take your first amendment rights away? >> i'm not quite sure yet. i haven't figured that out yet. it supposedly had been lifted three days before. >> so today, megan mccain tweeted roger stone, rot l in. a lot of people gloated over your dad's conviction. has the judge any of them? >> no, not about. he is spending the rest of his o life in jail over what i saw in court all have to share with yo after february, but it doesn't seem right to take someone's entire life away over some bickering. at don't see where anybody was physically hurt or he harmed anybody. but you're just not punishing
him, you're punishing the entir family. you're taking away our rock. they're taking awaye my mother' life partner. i'm concerned about her and her security. and things aren't going to be the same. >> so the president part into people today, i believe the president also first signed a lot not that long ago that in effect pardoned a lot of crack dealers and also some. in yet, we are hearing that certain people around the president possibly a son-in-law commitment be not are telling him you can't pardon roger ston even though the president has come out and said i think this is a travesty, what is your view , do you think the president will? >> he has so muchoe support, he really does he's been around an politics for his entire life an to take him away, it would be a huge loss for everybody for republicans all over the world
he is 40 steps ahead of more political out there. that's what he gets invited to go to harvard into oxford, to g and speak about what he knows about his skills. it would be a loss, not only fo our family, but for everybody. >> this is a travesty. the president said it today. i honestly do think that after watching this series of people, some are not deserving at all get pardons from this white house in effect or literally, i think people will be watching carefully to see if your dad is pardoned. >> i can only ask, i can only ask and i do. donald trump, if you can hear me , please save my family. he does not deserve this. nobody deserves this. and after february, when everything is said and done, i would like a lot of people to look at the money trail
and where this all started because this shouldn't happen to anybody. nobody should have to lose their life to what we have just experienced. >> tucker: yeah, for supporting the wrong candidate. >> there is a lot more to come out, but obviously can't talk about it. >> tucker: thank you so muchbv for joining us tonight. >> thank you for having me. i so appreciate it. thankk you, god bless. >> tucker: thank you. well, it's very easy to stay in this country legally if you want to, as you know, but some are determined to game the system even more. authorities say a group of immigrants fake add robbery in order to get immigrant visas. details on that. plus it's friday, dan bongino joins us for his weekly news explosion, a particularly violent news explosion this week and hilarious. stay tuned. ♪
as we can as the wahhabist who run saudi arabia. hamore on the lawsuit seeking to expose the full truth of saudi links to 9/11. >> survivors of 9/11 and their family members banding together in court to call out the justice department for protecting the saudi government. and by extension the al qaeda terrorists who killeded nearly 3,000 people on u.s. soil. at the heart of their complaint, a classified report from 2016 that details everything the u.s. government knows about the 9/11 attacks. reports the justice department is refusing to make public. one survivor at the hearing in new york city today says it left him feeling nauseated. >> our fbi is clearly protecting the saudis, clearly protecting them by sinot releasing this information. l after 18, 19, almost 20 years now later, there should be no national secrets, security secrets anymore. >> one explosive detail in that report, the name of a saudi co-conspirator who
allegedly ordered assistance to the hijackers but to this day remains free and faces no charges.alnc >> the third man was the individual who tasked handlers in los angeles -- excuse me, i'm a little out of breath, handlers in los angeles, he was their boss, boss, who provided and tasked them to help the hijackers in los angeles elback in 2,000. >> the saudi regime has for decades denied any involvement in 9/11. both the fbi and congressional investigators have directly linked two saudi officials to hijackers. the family's attorney agrees. >> we think that the evidence and the material and the documents show a direct connection to saudi officials. >> now, the name of that third saudi official is already known to a handful of victim's family members who say straight up that is
not good enough. they say the feds should dignify all americans by naming the terrorists, tucker, who attacked the homeland on 9/11. >> tucker: you think? i think. you are not allowed to say but amen.nk gillian turner, great to see you tonight. >> you bet. >> tucker: it's a story so nuts and unlikely it could only happen in something like america's immigration system where crazy things do happen quite a bit. according to the sheriff's office in kings county washington, where ceilings is, a group of about 10 immigrants carried out elaborate fake burglary against themselves. why did they do that? one of the many visas that we offer to foreigners is called a nonimmigrant visa.eur it allows a foreign who is a victim of a crime in the united states to stay in this country for the sake of assisting authorities in solving the crime. now, see this crime was fake, of course, the hope was that the case would never be closed and they could stay in this country long term, forever. jason has been following this story. he is the seattle radio show host and he joins us tonight. jason, did i describe that correctly?
i mean, it's almost like out of a movie, this story. >> it's insane. and obviously this a crime that freaked out a whole bunch of people it. happened outside of seattle. we don't normally see these kinds of robberies where, in this case, it was alleged that two men in masks, one with a handgun, went into bob's burgers and tear achy, this restaurant, they held people up. they tied people up. they sexually assaulted two of the female victims before getting away. and the story was that somems customer wandered in and noticed that this had happened, called 911, and then obviously king county sheriff's deputies took this incredibly seriously. they had a specific cryption of the two individuals. they had a car and license plate. and it turns out it was completely a hoax. and they found out pretty quickly that it was a hoax. and during the investigation, they discovered, yeah, this was so they thought, they would qualify to have a u visa
which says under certain circumstance, under certain crimes, you are protected from being deported because you would have to participate in the actual, you know, justice system to go after these bad guys. now, in theory, when you think you t are not actually going to be deported because there is not actually a crime but they think there is a crime, it means indefinitely they would be able to stay here, now, the ironic part about this story is now that they figured it out, right? they haven't yet pressed charges and the expectation is there are going to be some charges.ig well, in washington state, and in king county and in seattle, we are sanctuary. we have sanctuary policies. which means even after they are convicted and let's say they do w some jail time, they are unlikely to actually be deported anyway. because we will not participate with ice and we won't turn them over. >> tucker: even though they faked the crime, and tied up seattle area law enforcement trying to solve a crime. >> yep. >> tucker: that they committed, they won't be turned over to the feds for deportation? >> they will not be -- they can't be turned over because of our washington state sanctuary law. it's absolutely ridiculous. and it'sng dangerous. >> tucker: it's also
masochism so you can see what's going on. there are people who hate our society and are seeking to destroy it, obviously. jason rantz thank you for joining us tonight tonight thank you for that explanation. creepy porn lawyer is back on television. if you can believe it, not in the way he would like to be back on television. is he not sitting across from brian stelter on cnn. we will tell you what he is doing. time for final exam weekly news quiz back after one night delay due to the rally last evening. that's just ahead. stay tuned. ♪ or ♪ - [spokeswoman] meet the ninja foodi pressure cooker, the best of pressure cooking and air frying now in one pot, and with tendercrisp technology, you can cook foods that are crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. the ninja foodi pressure cooker, the pressure cooker that crisps.

hey, dan. >> hey, tucker. this was a tough week to pack three stories into the two-minute drill news explosion tonight. but i will try. i will do my best. so, my first story, because i think it's kind off comically sad, is elizabeth warren is proposing some tax rates, you know, for billionairesom and millionaires, as bernie would say, upwards of 100%, tucker. as i wrote down here. >> tucker: maximum, i think. >> yeah. right. there's nothing like unwittingly working for the government 100% of the time. q i have a question for you, even though it's a news explosion segment. tucker, seriously, is there anything in your life you work harder to finance then you get less from in return than the government? i'm going to throw that out there. >> tucker: well, i live in the district of columbia, so i get literally nothing. not one thing. >> neither do 99% of other americans, either. especially for 100% of your time. all right, story number two. finally, we have a news outlet doing what used to be called journalism, trying to track down the whistle-blower. great. you must be saying, this is fantastic.
it's only the biggest story of our time. no, no, no. not that whistle-blower. n it's the whistle-blower who outed the poor reporter on abc who reported on the epstein case. that whistle-blower. they are trying to track that person down. that's a big story. but the whistle-blower who started impeachment, overthrowing an election, forget that. that's a sacred cow. nobody is allowed to talk about that, of course. right. so, i see people in the back. story number one. the impeachment circus continues. i have to make this one quick. but this is fascinating. we have now had three witnesses who must think, tucker, they are at some kind of a motor vehicle auction or something. it's impeachment trial, and a yet, all three witnesses, taylor, kent, and yovanovitch went after -- there is actual a high crime or misdemeanor all seem perplexed by the question and come up with a remarkable answer of, no.no i don't know what they think this is. car auction? what do they think they are doing here? >> tucker: the president was rude. that was a news flash. donald trump has bad manners.
