recovery and staying strong. you.less >> that's at for us, never miss an episode of the five, hannity is up next. >> sean: thanks to all our friends on "the five." welcome to "hannity." this is a fox news alert. what could be a catastrophicic strike from hurricane irma with two nuclear power plants directly in the path of this hurricane. also, georgia, south carolina, north carolina are racing to prepare for the impact from the strongest storm ever reported in the atlantic ocean. this is absolutely a massive hurricane moving all across the caribbean. leaving a path of total destruction in its president trump is now saying fema, the federal resources are all on the ground. estimated at this point to cause over $100 billion in damage. tonight, rick scott, newt gingrich, joe bastardi,
10:01 pm
laura ingraham, luke rosiak from the daily caller." an update on the massive hurricane, with our meterologist rick reichmuth. also, adam housley is in the key west area. rick, we will start with you. >> we continue to be even more concern now for parts of florida. the models continue to come in indicating a direct hit from florida. in the short term, the storm looks like it's going through a replacement cycle. the latest, the wins have come down a little bit, still a strong category 5 storm. we strengthen once that cycle finishes. it's going over the warmest water that it's gone over in any point. these temperatures into the upper 80s. that's all the fuel and needs to stay in this major category storm. all indications will pull up the northwest, we know it's making
10:02 pm
this right-hand turn in the model consensus is getting into a little bit better agreement and it's a little bit farther again to the west through the evening tonight. we have direct landfall somewhere here in south florida, possibly key largo which is where we find our adam housley. people here in the keys have listened. many have evacuated. we do know this hour the governor florida has called for evacuations in this area and others have expanded now in the western side of florida. he's also shut down the schools through monday. that's all universities, all colleges. if it's a school in florida, it's been told to shut down through this hurricane which will last for a couple of days. we had a chance to see the destruction has come through the caribbean and because of those pictures, because of the video, many people in the keys say that's help them determine to go. they want to try to some away from the keys in the storm. that may be some distance to get away from the storm including the northern part of the state
10:03 pm
into georgia and other states as well. to give you an idea, look at the freeways down here. basically empty meaning most people did listen to the advice. we do know there are a few stragglers here who say they will stay until the very end, until then, now back to hannity. >> sean: thank you both. we will have more breaking news weather updates all throughout the hour tonight. hurricane irma is leaving a path of distraction like we've nevert seen take a look at these traumatich images of hurricane irma pounding several islands in the caribbean with sustainedhe 185-mile-per-hour winds, they completely ripped apart buildings and homes and airports and even the infrastructure. here is the aftermath in saint maarten. most everything in hurricane irma's path was completely leveled leaving debris and destruction everywhere. a neighboring island, barbuda, they compared this hurricane to a bomb being dropped on them. 95% of the homes and vehicles b
10:04 pm
have been destroyed. how unprecedented this storm is, let's look at some of the headlines around the country... irma will be devastating for the u.s. "usa today," hurricane irma has the potential of affecting every major city in florida. "the new york post," hurricane irma is the size of texas. "miami herald," two south florida nuclear plants lie in irma's path. are they ready? scary thought. back to cbs miami. water in short supply. get this -- four navy ships and thousands of troops. hurricane irma is stronger than all of 2017's other eight atlantic storms combined.
10:05 pm
that's how serious the storm is. joining is now on the phone is the florida governor, rick scott. governor, our thoughts and prayers are with you, sir. i've been watching you and every preparation possible i see is ih effect. let's talk to the people in the path of this storm. what you want to say to them? >> i care about every person that lives in our state and i. want everyone to be safe. the important thing is be prepared, follow the news. if you are in an evacuation area, evacuate media back immediately. i will do everything to provide fuel so you can get out, i've been working with the oil companies, the carriers, the retailers, i am trying to get more fuel into this state. we have three more tankers coming into tampa, the white house, fema, epa, department of transportation and department of energy. i want everybody to be safe.
10:06 pm
this is a massive storm as he o said. it packs a lot of wind. here's the missing difference. this is way bigger than andrew 25 years ago. bigger in size, winds, way bigger and storm surge. you could see storm surge covering your entire house. that did not happen with andrew. we've got to this seriously. >> sean: governor, if you look at the model -- i know you expect this to first hit south florida. that means basically for miami and then to the west up to fort myers and maybe even sarasota and on the east coast. i know you are going to be heading west palm and even above that. broward county is now being evacuated. i guess the most important thing to know is the whole state is engulfed. is your state, in estimation, safe enough?? >> absolutely. we have local evacuation orders.
10:07 pm
we have shelters in every county. we have safe shelters in york county. you can stay in your county but people further north, we are following all the traffic. highway patrol, our department of transportation, we are making sure that all of our evacuation routes are open. the big thing is, if you're going to evacuate, do it as early as possible. the later you do this, the moreo traffic you will run into. you can go to shelters. we have them in every county. to keep you >> sean: yeah. governor, one of the things -- i did pull over to the white house and try to get some information. i know general mattis is sending four navy ships. they have sent in not just fema but national guard troops are available to you and they have post-storm -- all the food, water, medicine, supplies that obviously floridians are going to be needing.
10:08 pm
that's coming up after the storm. in preparation for this storm, explain what you are advising people because you actually lifted regulation to bring in more gasoline so people could travel to the safer parts of the state and also, what about food/medicine/supplies and things like that? >> starting with food, food and water -- we've worked with retailers to make sure we have enough good water. replenishing quickly. fuel, we talked about that. we do have some outages, we do have some lines, some people waiting. the federal government has waived a lot of regulations to help us in that regard. in regard to medicine, a lot of people trying to get the medicine early. all the tolls in the state -- to make it easier for people to get through and you don't get slowed down by the tolls. we are doing everything we can. fema, our utilities are focused
10:09 pm
on prepositioning people. as quickly as possible. our biggest concern is the lower keys. we have so many -- just one bridge, everyone would be c stranded. >> sean: governor, have you spoken to the president? >> i have spoken to the president multiple times. i've spoken to the vicede president. it seems like almost every cabinet member up there has called in support. they are doing the things i've asked for. i know the president cares about this state. i appreciate everybody's help. a lot of calls from governors around the country. office support, i am appreciative of everything they are doing. i want everyone in my state to stay safe and survive this. we will rebuild your home and possessions but we can't rebuild your life and your family. so stay safe.
10:10 pm
>> sean: governor, great advice for everybody. you know it's my second home. our thoughts and prayers are with you. we will be watching closely. i know the country will be ready with any help that our neighbors down their need. thank you for being with us. >> thank you, sean. >> sean: joining us now on this, joe bastardi. you track on this has stayed steady, moved a little bit west. when will be expect landfall and how bad is it going to be? >> the track as of the east coast of florida. but the florida keys as thefa governor mentioned, in 1935 -- it cut the keys off completely. this storm, if it's a little bit further west, it has the capability to do that. florida is going to get hit and have a catastrophic storm. t where exactly it goes in yet is still to be determined. we have it up the east coast. national hurricane center does.
10:11 pm
but folks in the florida keys should get out of there. if this thing comes west, you will cut the keys off.ey right now, the hurricane force winds start arriving on the south coast of florida probably around noon on saturday. in the storm makes landfall very late saturday night. somewhere between key largo and miami.m that's our estimate now. it travels up the east coast and back out over the water and then comes through the carolinas andt georgia. after that. it could still be very, very powerful at that time. >> sean: all right, for obvious reasons, there are some people that have contacted me a littless they have bit of joe bastardi blood in them and are saying that they will ride this out. even people i know in evacuation you have studied hurricanes your entire life. you know whether better than anyone i know. good idea or bad idea? my advice would be to leave if they tell you to leave. t >> very bad idea and i will tell
10:12 pm
you why. go google the 1926 great miami hurricane.l go google 1935 labor day hurricane. 1947 west palm beach hurricane. hurricane don in 1960. go look at what happened. hurricane camille, 1969. it flattened those areas that were hit directly. you don't stand in the way of69 this storm. i'm going to tell you how bad this storm is.y i would read all the time about. storms of the past and people don't understand how bad it was in florida especially in the 1940s. i would say could not actually happen? could that actually happen?y trains blown off tracks. guess what? this is the kind of storm that could do it. it's back and it's coming to florida. >> sean: let's talk. when you look at the cone that we've all been paying attention to, it engulfs the entire state of florida. i was talking to you on radio earlier. you were telling me orlando, central florida is going to get hit hard.o
10:13 pm
they've even started evacuating places in georgia like savannah. how bad are those areas going to get hit, the middle of the state, going up to jacksonvillee marta? >> that cone is a cone of uncertainty. gary left or right. the cone is not where the hurricane is covering completely. let's say -- let's assume my track is right, up the east coast of florida. you will have wind gusts over 120 miles an hour, all the way up to cape canaveral. you will have in the gusts. 100-110 miles an hour. west coast would probably have some hurricane gusts but it would be as bad. what if it bisected the state? it would weaken if it did, but it would be hitting the east coast and west coast with equal fury, weakening as it comes forth.ti there are a whole bunch of different options over here. a
10:14 pm
we hate to say that -- it's been easy to forecast the track so far. the problem is, where does it make that turn? if it makes the turn and comes up over miami like i think it does, you will be dealing with a major hurricane hitting even further up the coast in savannat and up into charleston. that's where our track is taking it. this is a very, very serious storm and everyone has to take it very seriously. >> sean: joe bastardi from we will see you back here tomorrow. more at live coverage and other updates. coming up throughout the hour tonight on hurricane irma, later in the show. mommy come back, former speaker of the house newt gingrich will weigh in on april hypocrisy over daca. the president struck a deal with pelosi and schumer. laura ingraham will join us to. talk about that and more on hurricane irma, straight ahead.

10:17 pm
10:18 pm
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity." earlier today, the president issued a tweet addressing the daca so-called dreamers... clearly, president trump is trying to restore the rule of law and the constitution and not usurped the powers of theea legislative branch but some democrats are just hell-bent on
10:19 pm
painting the president asd unhinged. joining us now, "new york times" best seller author, former speaker of the house newt gingrich. i want to get to this in a second -- let me stay on the hurricane if i can come up for one minute, mr. speaker. this is important. if the only thing the media can criticize is melania's shoes, and that's all they had. you saw the governor in local officials and federal government really come together in an organized fashion. next to zero complaints. i've talked to people in florida. they are working and coordinating in a similar fashion there. i've got to expect the same results. doesn't that tell you something about where people's mind-set is? >> look, i think the country is divided and encourage that you can have effective government
10:20 pm
that works and everybody, state, local, federal working in the same direction. you can have professional competence as the president said a few moments ago. you can have people committed to doing their job, the american military mobilized. houston, louisiana, florida, it's probably as big a natural disaster punch as we've had certainly in my lifetime. i feel it a direct level, i have a daughter who lives in floridad she's right in the middle of this. it's very sobering when you look at the size of this storm andd the power. i think it's encouraging and by the way, on behalf of the president, part of the reason he cut the deal he did yesterday on a bipartisan basis -- to get 90 days funding. i think the senate has actually moved today on this, he was trying to continue the momentum of being together, of doing
10:21 pm
something together. and of showing that the american government can act quickly. if they can get the money out of washington to houston this week, setting the stage for potential challenges next week in florida, i think that's another signal that maybe some things are coming together and maybebe president trump, who has a background in construction and in looking at this sort of thing, maybe he is able to pull the country together the way they came together in texas. >> sean: you've got to hope so. i look at this storm and it's chilling to see the cities that will be impact. the entire state is engulfed in this hurricane. as people are predicting, it could be one of the worst storms ever. both of us are conservative. we believe inon limited government. more responsibility.y. opportunity. society and the federal government plays an important role. safety and security.
10:22 pm
and hopefully they don't get ind the way of prosperity, which i argue that they often do. isn't this one of the times the government could really step up and help people? government worked this time. it's nice to see that it works occasionally. i'm not the biggest fan of it. >> i was trying to remind people that the founding fathers developed a constitution for a limited but effective government. they did not want a sloppy or incompetent government. they wanted to limit it in order to protect our freedom and privileges and rights aslo citizens. when they moved, they wanted to move very effectively. these are people who practice for eight years the art of war against the british empire. they knew what it took to be effective and they will look at what's happening in texas andwa say you know, the system is working at every level. you have local leadership, governor scott is getting great marks. he's an entrepreneur like trump. your federal leadership with trump.
10:23 pm
it's all pulling in the same direction. i think that's what'sip encouraging the american people. after all this good luck and nastiness, all these vicious stories, here you have the american government coming together in the american people coming together in a positive way. >> sean: i've been very outspoken and disappointed about the republicans not keeping their promises. from my perspective, and you know -- having accomplished a lot as a speaker, i would say they have 14 weeks to really ger their act together and that would include changing the tax code, seven brackets to three. repatriating money from nationals. small business cuts. energy independence. build a wall. i am not that overly optimistic that these guys are going to get their job done. what are your thoughts? >> i am moderately optimistic ot what i think is the biggest assignment -- and i like what steven mnuchin has been saying, what he was saying in an interview or press conference.
10:24 pm
their commitment is to get all of this done by thanksgiving. to be able to give the american people -- as steven mnuchins described it, the tax form down to the size of a large postcard for the average american, they can pull that off, a 15% corporate rate, a big tax cut for small business, this would be the achievement. if i were them, i would mark every week against getting the tax cut done. we can get everything else done once the tax gets done. let's get it signed by thanksgiving so that the first quarter of next year, we see a real surge of economic growth. probably starting with the christmas period. the people see a big tax cut coming, you will have a big christmas in this country. >> sean: i had a front row seat to your ascendancy toyo become speaker.
10:25 pm
of the local radio radio guy in atlanta. i was mc the night you became speaker. you created a series called "renewing american civilization." it was the foundation of ideas and solutions to make the country better. i always argue -- people ask me and i say you are a professor and historian. you now basically are starting not roll up again with defending america. tell us how people can join that class of yours. >> just go to it's really on how to defeat the left intellectually. and remind people why america is unique and my american history matters and by being patriotic is important. i think has m some very, very good ideas.
10:26 pm
it's part of something i used to do. i believe in teaching and in an informed citizenry. >> sean: we will put it up on we have a lot on hurricane irma as it continues towards the state of florida. and later tonight, "the daily caller," an investigation and explosive report. debbie wasserman schultz and her former i.t. aide, did the ita to plant evidence on her to get to the cops? first, president trump struck a deal with nancy laura ingraham will weigh in on that and of course, hurricane irma. keeping me from the things i love to do. talk to your doctor, and call 844-214-2424.

10:31 pm
we have a great respect for the sanctity of the debt ceiling. chuck does and nancy does and we all do. that will never be a problem. debt ceiling will never be a problem. >> sean: that was president trump earlier today talking about the deal he made with congressional democrats on the debt ceiling which will prevent a government shutdown at the end of the month. many republicans are reportedly livid with the compromise. didn't the president get to the white house and promised to be a dealmaker? is this a good deal?pr joining us now with reaction, fox news contributor and nationally syndicated radio host and i don't have enough time for the rest of the introductions, laura ingraham. i want to get back to the issue. we believe in limited government. the biggest criticism was melania's shoes which was pretty despicable in and of itself. i called over to the white house today. they have preposition troops,
10:32 pm
food, water, medicine, supplies, cots, baby blankets, general mattis ordered four navy ships. they have thousands of people on the ready right now. where are we going with their criticism this time when government is actually working? >> the left and many republicans, many never trumpers are against anything that works well in the administrations, except for maybe getting involved in another war. they will be happy with that,ar some of the never trumpers. trump shouldn't wait for thein acknowledgment that in the facee of the worst natural disaster to befall our country, which it looks like this hurricane is going to be, this administration did everything possible to coordinate on a federal, state, and local level and be prepared in a way that i think it's really admirable..
10:33 pm
it's smart. it's what government really should do at a time like this. but i don't think we should hold our breath waiting for any acknowledgment of i don't think president trump cares about that at this point. he's worried about the people in south florida all the way toto tallahassee. gainesville. it's going to be a monster storm. >> sean: it's going to the carolinas.inin this is a scary moment. you would think that's what we want, to help out our friends in texas and now our friends in florida. we want them safe and secure. thank god we have meteorology they can tell us storms like this are coming. and of course we make the necessary preparations. when i go to this compromise deal. i agree with newt's analysis. the president wanted to give the money to texas and that was a big part of his rationale and with all due respect to mitch mcconnell, he hasn't proven himself capable of doing anything because expectations are so high. especially in health care.
10:34 pm
>> all the caterwauling we are hearing from republicans -- "oh, woe is us. we are betrayed." where was all of their concern and urgency over the last six weeks? they took off for the august recess. they went home and do what they did at home. went to some picnics and state fairs, raised some money, and took a little break -- at the time, i think the president begins to think we've got to get something done here. a he wants to be a popular president. he's a conservative populist.t that means at times, if republicans don't deliver legislation that he can sign on the critical matters that he campaigned on, he's going to look to move the ball down the field with another set of players. it sometimes, it's going to be people that you and i don't like very much and agree with on mana issues -- on an issue like the debt ceiling, a conservative concern and rightfully so -- the president wanted to move this issue off the table and clear the deck for tax reform.
10:35 pm
if they do not get tax reform done, they are done. they are finished. paul ryan came out today and had an extra special spring in his step on tax reform. it will be interesting to see what the democrats do to the republicans. >> sean: macconnell? >> no, ryan. he had an extra excitement. >> sean: i'm going to be fair. at least ryan got the health care bill out of the house.e. and the freedom caucus worked hard with him and got it done at the end of the day. mcconnell has no excuse in the fact that he feel so much pressure with expectations is mind-numbing. >> when charlottesville happened, these people are the first ones to give on backgroun or off the record sniping at the president. a lot of these people who are grousing about donald trump. they are happy to say "he doesn't understand how complex a things are, he doesn't understand how legislation works." he says "if you don't work with me, i'm going to work with other people."
10:36 pm
>> sean: people like ben sachs, flake, mccain. the things they say about him behind closed doors? >> they hate trump. >> sean: when we come back, and explosive report thed mainstream media won't tell you about. debbie wasserman schultz and her former i.t. aide -- did the aide plant evidence for the copsel defined on wasserman schultz? we will have more live reports on hurricane irma and the powerhouse storm as it continues to barrel towards the state of florida and engulfed the entire state. when we come back.on copd makes it hard to breathe.

game hog! champion. with the preliminary magnitude of eight according to the united states geological survey. struck in the southern coast of mexico and a town called pop a tulip that's more than 700 miles away. no word on injuries or the extent of any damage. the u.s. now warning the earthquake was a potential tsunami threat to several central american countries including guatemala, honduras, mexico, el salvador. let's go to randy baldwin. randy, good morning. i was reading up on this and
10:41 pm
it's 20 miles deep, kubrick that down? what kind of damage cannot cause? when i could much out yet as it just happen. >> it's a large quake that could potentially cause damage. it is located about 50 miles off the coast, but this area has produced large quakes in the past, so it's a very seismically hectic and has produced large quakes and any quake of this size has a potential to be damaging. >> there also talking most in army warnings. >> the last time i checked the tsunami warning center, they were issuing a synonymy warning along the coast of mexico and predicting possible wave heights of 3 meters, so that's what
10:42 pm
localized tsunamis along the coast. >> they said it could be as far away a 700 miles, is that typical for an 8.0 earthquake? >> i think so. you do get a lot of reports coming in from mexico city. mexico city sits in a basal area, so anything that occurs on the coast of the central america region tends to get amplified and they get built in the mexico city area. >> we're looking at some video here, i believe it's of the are area. that's about 700 miles away from where it happened. when an earthquake like this hits, what should you do? >> you need to be aware of the
10:43 pm
hazards. i'm sure the people of central america and mexico are certainly aware, there have been some very damaging events in mexico city in the past. you have to be aware that large quakes do occur here and you have to be able to take cover and not try to get hit by falling objects in that sort of thing. the population through this region might have experience in the past for that mid-to-upper magnitude sevens. >> randy, given that you said this is an area that's no stranger to earthquakes, do you or can you talk to any of the infrastructure there given that this is somewhat i don't know if
10:44 pm
you would say common, and a .0 earthquake, but what about the structures in mexico city? >> any time you have buildings made of masonry or unreinforced, then you have a greater potential for damage. when you have a quake like this which a a big considered a shaw quake, a shallow quake produces more seismic waves that shake the surface, so that's one of the hazards with a quake this shallow. you combine the two, and there's the potential for damage. along the coastal area. >> as you know, we are currently watching hurricane irma there in florida, and hurricane harvey that came two weeks ago. does this have anything to do with an earthquake? >> no, i don't think so. this is just an active region
10:45 pm
and it produces large quakes on a fairly regular basis. >> okay, we're just getting reports that an 8.0 magnitude earthquake hit mexico, could be felt as far away as 700 miles from where that hit in mexico city. people running into the streets in their pajamas, worried about some of these buildings falling. what are the odds of the buildings falling at this point? >> it depends on local construction and where the buildings might occur. you have to over the next day or two, the assessments will be made on exactly where the damage occurred. you really can't tell specifically. >> we appreciate you being on the phone with us, we'll continue to watch us earthquake that just happened in mexico, 8.0. we went to take a quick break and will be right back.

sounds like to there is something incriminating on that laptop. >> and then a copy of imran awan's i.d. it was in a phone booth where he really would have no business in this building with his bosses laptop. she said first it was her laptop and then she changed her story and said it was his. the username on it is hers. this i.t. staffer ran and took this laptop, seemingly intentionally for police to find.n >> sean: this is a guy that she knew double billed. no experience from his one guy worked for mcdonald'ss and was fired. a car dealership and no i.t. experience. she kept him on even though sher knew he double billed and then they busted up hard drives inside this guy's garage.

>> a few months after the dnc is hacked, capital police tell her that he is suspected of cybersecurity violations. she said she was aware of data transfer violations. she keeps him on and he uses this continued access to her office building and takes this laptop and plants it for police to find.s then she threatens consequences if they don't return it. you have to ask, is this -- is it possible that your judgment is this bad? are these the actions of someone who has just been hacked and do they take hacking seriously? this guy was somehow being framed when she's the victim here? it's your laptop that's gone missing. first said it's hers and copss can't look at it because it's got congressional information on it but she just wants to protect his rights. >> sean: sara, let me go to you. if you look at the bizarre nature of all this in the new

couple it with okay, what could debbie wasserman schultz we twanted to hide? why were there busted up hard drives in this guy's garage? i've got to ask myself, could it be in any way connected to what happened when she was removed as the dnc chair on the eve of the democratic convention? what is she hiding here? >> luke's story is explosive. it's probably one of the biggest stories of the year the no one's really paying attention to. at least in the mainstream media.s we've got to ask ourselves, what she blackmailed by these guys? luke wrote a very intensive story where he even interviewed the stepmother that was blackmailing them. what were they sending to these overseas servers? this is a huge national security risk, sean. going back to debbie wasserman schultz -- what is she hiding? i don't believe that debbie wasserman schultz doesn't really

understand what's going on, that she believes this ison islamophobia. i think what happened here and in discussing this with luke, what happened here is that he was threatening her. this is something everyone should be looking at. the fbi as well as the capitol hill police. >> sean: absolutely. let me ask you one other question. dana rohrabacher was on the show last night.t. 99% certainty he believes julian assange will be able to prove there was no russia-trump collusion. and today, no evidence that trump interfered with the russian probe. what is robert mueller doing? what is james comey doing? they want him to testify again because they smell a rat. >> he needs to testify again. we know now that all the way back in april, comey was already writing hillary clinton's exoneration.n. we want to know why he was doing that and at the same time, president obama was saying
10:55 pm
similar things. taking direct obama's from president obama? that's very interesting because he has accused president trump, and, allegedly, for asking forct loyalty. there are a lot of questions that need to be answered and as far as julian assange, sean,t he's still important. he's the one person that could actually answer these questions. i believe it's the duty of the special counsel to reach out and find out what julian assange knows. and then to make it public. that's the only way to resolve this. >> sean: good point. luke, great work. sara, great work as always. more "hannity" after this break. choose your civilization. army versus army.
