10:00 pm
sadly, we ran out of time tonight. until tomorrow night, tune in every night at 8:00 to the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink. that's it for us. happily, sean hannity is live in new york city. sean? >> sean: tucker, great show. welcome to "hannity." everything we have been telling you on this program for months is notg coming to fruition. i know it's slow. it's frustrating to become too. breakingoj tonight, doj inspectr general michael horowitz will open an investigation into fisa abuses within the department of justice and the fbi. this is big, big news and we'll explain why. we have been sounding this alarm about the deep state weaponizing the intelligence community night after night and finally, now, we are one step closer to getting the justice we've been calling for, and you, the american people deserve. by the way, this announcement could not come at a better time. because tonight, newly uncovered text messages between trump hating fbi lovebirds peter strzok and lisa page, they are revealing even more evidence --
10:01 pm
it's only a smidgen of what is coming in terms of the potential abuse of power within some of the highest levels of our government. also the attorney general jeff sessions is reportedly deliveredd tonight at the fbi's lack of cooperation following requests for documents related to a number of important cases in the mainstream media was in a frenzy today over a story that president trump considered pardoning lieutenant general michael flynn and paul manafort. one problem, the story was fake news. james comey just added one more stop to his upcoming book to her. he's doing a town hall with jerry springer want to be come a anderson cooper. i speak with the fbi informant in the uranium one case. he will be in studio with me. that is coming up for the first time. we have that and more in tonight's big, breaking news opening monologue. ♪ it's official. i told you at the beginning of the year, 2018 will be and is now becoming the year of the
10:02 pm
boomerang. our top story tonight, after months of ringing the alarm about the abuse of power within the fisa court system, the doj inspector general has finally now announced plans to investigate alleged foreign intelligence surveillance abuses. we've been calling for this, by the doj and the fbi. we have been exposing how the unverified clinton bought and paid for a dossier filled with russian and russian government plies in propaganda and misinformation was used as evidence to extend a fisa warrant on carter page. we also showed you how circular reporting from michael isikoff and yahoo! news citing the phony dossier was intentionally used by the fbi as an attempt to strengthen their fisa abuse case against paige. we have unearthed shocking conflicts of interest, sadly at the highest levels of the fbi and doj. we are finally one step closer to getting to the bottom line
10:03 pm
truth and what is the biggest abuse of power scandal and this history of the country. we deserve to know the truth and we are revealing the real and ever present danger to have the powerful tools of intelligence in the deep state used against the american people. i know this is slow. i know this is frustrating. but we are now finally making serious progress. according to the doj inspector general statement, it says in part,j, "as part of the examination, the oig will review information that was known to the doj and the fbi at the time the applications were filed from or about an alleged fbi confidential source." this is interesting. additionally, the oig will review the doj and fbi's relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the fisa court applications. in order for this investigation to be successful, it must answer the following questions. these are only a few of many.
10:04 pm
what did the fbi really know about the steele dossier and when did they know it? this is critical. what was the fbi's relationship with a foreign national by the name of christopher steele who used russian sources? was the fisa warrant against carter page politically motivated? did political bias influence the fbi or doj during the russia investigation? my message tonight to the fbi and doj is turned over to 1.2 millionn documents that congress has now subpoenaed and it is time to appoint a special counsel because you cannot ever investigate yourself. this brings us to our next breaking story. congressional investigators from the freedom caucus, the only guys doing any work in washington, they have now unearthed tonight even more texts between anti-trump lovers peter strzok and lisa page. remember, there are over 50,000 strzok-page texts. this is but a small sampling of
10:05 pm
what they believe could reveal damning new evidence that the fbi, the obama white house, the cia, the deep state, the intel community, were all working together to open a politically motivated trump-russia collision investigation. let's explain why congressionali investigators people think this is important. according to one text message from strzok to lisa page, strzok makes a reference to the first inter-agency meeting discussing coordination between the fbi and the doj on the dnc hacking case. this is what strzok writes. "thanks so much for having the discipline to wait another 24 hours to have the first meeting about the case with the doj." these congressional investigators that we spoke to tonight's, they believe this is evidence that the fbi and doj met a to discuss the russia election hacking investigation and then get this, august 25th,
10:06 pm
2016, harry reid is briefed by then cia director, the guy that voted for20 the communist to me '70s, how did he become a cia director? john brennan, about russia's attempts to influence the election. then two days after that meeting, harry reid sends a letter to then fbi director james comey. urging him to open an investigation into donald trump. he wrote at the time, "the evidence of a direct connection between the russian government on donald trump's presidential campaign continues to mount." after the letter became public, strzok texts lisa page a link to a "new york times" article referencing the letter, writing, "here we go." it may be that it is like. next the fbi used that letter as a legitimate cover for their investigation into russia collision and as a part of their fisa warrant application against carter a page, a trump associat. that gets them all the emails come intoea the heart of the trp
10:07 pm
campaign. in other words, this was a coordinated effort to spy on, bring down, and to tarnish the campaign. sara carter and house intel committee chairman devin nunes will be here tonight and they will explain all of this to you. while we continue to bring information about the deep state forces that are working to take on the president, working to make sure president never got elected, the fbi is stonewalling the american people and congress when it comes to these request for documents related to three important topics including the departments investigation into clinton's email server, information about potential fisa abuses, and the justification behind why andrew mccabe was fired from the fbi. the release of documents has been extraordinarily slow. as a matter of fact, it also sounds like obstruction to me. so slow that the house judiciary committee chairman bob goodlatte was forced to issue a subpoena. the "washington examiner"'s
10:08 pm
byron york is reporting the attorney generalal jeff sessions is absolutely livid and apoplectic with the fbi director christopher wray and has low compliance with these important requests. give us these documents? in response, as reported last night, director christopher wray has promised to double the amount of staff working on releasing the documents and will double off their shifts. but is this too little too late? showed a contempt of court order be issued if the fbi does not comply with bob goodlatte's subpoena? that's an important question. we turn our attention to another top story we are following. the media erupted into a frenzy today,y, absolutely goes nuts or a story in "the new york times" speculating that "trumps lawyer raised theye prospects of pardos for general flynn and paul manafort." one little itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny little problem with the story. it's fake news. we know because one of trump's lawyers, ty cobb, put out a statement that reads, "i've only
10:09 pm
been asked about pardons by the press and have routinely responded on the record, no pardons are under discussion are under consideration at the white house." oh, big news. ty cobb could not have been more clear. that does not stop their corrupt mainstream media from obsessing over the story during today's white house briefing. we have the evidence. take a look. >> are pardons on the table for anyone involved in the russia probe? >> look, i would refer you back to the statement from ty cobb and the report that you are asking about. >> can you say unequivocally that no one here has discussed pardons in this case? >> i canns say that ty cobb is e person that would be most directly involved in this. >> i'm wondering if the president believes he has the right to use the power of his office, the power to pardon, to protect them from what he might see as unfair from all my punishment on the road? does he believe he has that right? >> i would refer you back to ty
10:10 pm
cobb's statement. >> has he considered -- is he considering, what he consider pardoning paul manafort, michael flynn, or rick gates? >> as i said, and on record statement from the president's attorney here at the white house, on these matters, has said there is no discussion or consideration of this. >> to the president direct john dowd to talk to the attorneys of paul manafort and michael flynn about potential pardons? >> i'm not aware of any conversations of that nature. and the everyone press corps appeared to be on the same page about the story, one of the fake news reporters didn't get the memo. he works for fake news at cnn, jim acosta. he was preoccupied still with stormy, stormy, stormy, stormy. take a look.
10:11 pm
>> thanks so much, guys. have a great rest of the week. >> stormy daniels. why has he not spoken out about stormy daniels? >> sean: it's not surprisingg coming from cnn. by the way, we know. we learned that creepy anderson cooper, they jerry springer want to be, he is now going to be hosting a town hall next week with jim comay. that's right, jim, a spec audition to become the next pay to liberal talking head. fake news msnbc conspiracy theory news, sitting down for a town hall will to with cnn's version of springer. haley, james comey, i've already told you, you can divulge your deepest darkest secrets to me and i guess creepy anderson cooper, your choice. these are some of the questions come up either way, cooper was asking, and other ways, jerry springer junior asking stormy daniels and karen mcdougal. check out the creep factor. >> so the sex was consensual?
10:12 pm
that he hand you money? that he talk about his son? that he ever compare you to his kids? did he ever used production? you told donald trump to turn around and take off u his pants? >> yes. >> did he? >> yes. >> you had sex with him? >> yes. >> you were 27, he was 60. were you physically attracted to him? >> no. >> not at all? >> did you want to have sex with him? in an issue where condom uses a is an issue, did he use one? >> no. >> his private parts? to say, all i have jim comey, good luck. given the upcoming investigation by the doj's inspector general that we learned about today on potential fisa abuses, you may, jim, want to rethink that book and that book tour. james comey, remember, in this country, you do have the right
10:13 pm
to remain silent. with that said, you are still welcome on this program, mr. comey, as i've said repeatedly. we'll give you the entire hour. this is the highest rated hour and cable news. i'll also give you three hours on my radio show on 570 plus stations all over america. it's time to give the american people the answers they deserve. why do you continue to duck us? i'm beginning to take this personally. joining us now with reaction, former chairman of the house oversight committee, fox news contributor jason chaffetz. fox news investigative reporter's eric carter. fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. sara, got to start with your story. obama officials in the fbi coordinated and the anti-trump probe. this is only 3,000 of a 50,000 test messages to come out between the fbi levers that more and personally, part of a 1.2 million documents that
10:14 pm
bob goodlatte is demanding a turnover. >> these are 3,162 documents that they have had to peel apart for months, sean. they have had the most difficult time, the congressional committees investigating this, because the doj and the fbi have not been forthright with the information. i think this information is explosive. why?y? it shows that even when john brennan briefed harry reid, went to meet with him and the gang of eight, and w august, 2016, that early that month, at the beginning of august, we know that jonathan moffat, working with a counterintelligence division of the fbi, working alongside peter strzok and was probably peter strzok'ser supervisor, according to my sources, i actually went to the white house to have a meeting with denis mcdonough who was the chief of staff for president obama. what is so fascinating about that is that he entered the white house early in the morning that august, goes into the white house with three other people who are not to name from
10:15 pm
the white house log, and then doesn't check out until 11:59 that night. we don't even know what time he left. but he meets with dennis mcdonough and it it's apparently about this, the russia investigation. that puts him just 1 degree of separation from the president. dennis mcdonough as his chief of staff. president obama was very well aware, according to the sources that i've spoken with, at least they believe he was very well aware of what was going on in the beginnings of this investigation. >> sean: let's go to you, gregg jarrett. two points by the fbi stonewalling on the documents, more importantly, remember susa, january 11th memo, the meeting, comey is annexed, and then barack obama said "follow the law, do with the right way." when you put all of this together, there was far more involvement with the white house, barack obama and all of us than anybody new. >> absolutely free to believe
10:16 pm
that the president didn't know there was an investigation of d, candidate for president, is to believe in the tooth fairy. >> sean: does not make them a witness? >> absolutely. >> sean: he should be subpoenaed? >> he should be. here's the problem with all the subpoenas for the department of justice and the fbi. they should have been thrown because of contempt becausehe they've been stonewalling for the longest time. jeff sessions finally awakened from his slumber and told christopher wray, accelerate the handing over of the documents. the problem is, we are trusting the fbi and the department of justice to hand over documents that are responsive to the subpoena. >> sean: rod rosenstein didn't want to turn over the 3,000 that we have that to lead to the nunes memo that led to the grassley-graham memo, that the lead to america knowing about fisa abuses, which sara broke in march of last year.
10:17 pm
march 8th 2017. >> this is why there should be a special counsel. there ought to be a grand jury and not to subpoenas issued to go in ando see these documents. don't let the doj and the fbi decide which ones they want to turn over. they will hide to the incriminating documents or redact material information. get a warrant, sees them, bring in federal marshals. don't let the fbi be involved in policing themselves. >> sean: it's impossible. congressman chaffetz, you have experience in this. i am looking at the process -- and i know the wheels of justice grind ever so slowly here -- but when you put all of this together, hillary fixes a primary, comey, strzok, page, mccabe, lynch, others, seem to puts the fix in an wrigley investigation and turn her email server, which we know she committed felonies, it's irrefutable, and the evidence is
10:18 pm
incontrovertible. then she pays for a phony russian dossier that a foreign national puts together, the fbi doesn't verify it, it turns out to be false, they presented to a fisa court judge, and they omit the key part of the information, which is a she paid for it and they never verified it, and it is like pulling teeth to get truth out of the department of justice and theng fbi. how canan we get this informati? how do we get the 1.2 million documents? more importantly, how do we get the special counsel to investigate all of this garbage and all of this corruption? >> july of 2016, director comey declared a state close case. there is no excuse to hide these documents.s. the oversight committee asked for that. they refused to give them. i issued a subpoena, the chairman of the oversight committee in september of 2016, that is how far back this goes. move forward to august of 2017,
10:19 pm
devin nunes is fed up. he issues a subpoena. move forward to 2018. chairman goodlatte is issuing a subpoena and still those documents aren't there. they had to yank the attorney general and the fbi director -- i asked for it in july of 2016 and he issued a subpoena for this very information. >> sean: how does hillary get to delete subpoenaed emails and acid wash them? how do people get away with things that are guarantee gregg jarrett couldn't keep me out of jail for? >> if you look at with the attorney general and theto department of justice put out, they said they are going to reviewce this request. a subpoena is not a request, sean. if you were issued a subpoena and said, i'll take that under consideration and you didn't comply -- >> sean: but if i deleted us? >> he would go to jail. >> sean: what if i acid wash my hard drive with bleach but? >> that is why you got to have a
10:20 pm
special prosecutor who will go in theree? was tenacity and investigate these people. the only wayti that congress can enforce a subpoena is through the department of justice. there is no avenue to get directly to a court. >> sean: sara, i'm happy the inspector general is now going to investigate a fisa abuses dossier abuse -- we have been covering thiswe forever. the inspector general, does that mean we have to wait another four months for the inspector general report on the email server investigation? will that be released separatel separately? >> are you asking me, sean? i think that is going to come out much sooner than four months. three when i hear it's been delayed another month now. >> it has been delayed. we have to realize that within the department of justice right now, there is multiple ongoing investigations into the fisa abuse, and to andrew mccabe. i also believe into former fbi director james comey himself.
10:21 pm
who now has a book coming out that he's going on this tour so that will be very interesting to see how that plays out. there's a lot of information here that needs to be investigated. i absolutely agree with the other guests here on the show, with gregg and jason, that we need a special counsel to do this investigation, they really need to be able to have somebody who can subpoena, has a subpoena power to get the information that they need from the fbi and from the doj. there is no other way around it. look, we built a special counsel investigation into a president based upon a guy at a bar, george papadopoulos, and an unverified dossier. they have been going after this president now for more than a year. there was enough sufficient evidence here to open up a secondary special counsel. ii mean, it's overwhelming evidence that there was something going on here between officials at the fbi and doj. there is no doubt in my mind. >> sean: gregg jarrett? >> three of the six people who were in on to saving the court, concealing evidence, and
10:22 pm
breaking six felony statutes are not subject to the authority and jurisdiction of the independent counsel. he cannot compel james comey or andrew mccabe -- >> sean: who can? >> sally yates, no longer government employees, that special counsel can. if it were you or me, they'd be knocking on our office or home door and they would break in, if they answer, and armed with a warrant, they would seize the documents.av you have to have a warrant, you have a to sees them. >> sean: rod rosenstein -- forget about 1.2 million documents, congressman. he didn't want to hand over 3,000. it wasn't subpoenaed and at the last hours, he's on bended knee, begging paul ryan, "pretty please, don't force us to do this." we wouldn't have learned a lot about this. he appointed the special counsel, rosenstein, and it
10:23 pm
appears that he signed off on one of the fisa renewals. isn't that a conflict of interest? >> it does beg the question. remember the four page memo that devin nunes and trey gowdy put out the door and all theut flailing by adam schiff and then you have rod rosenstein begging with the speaker of the house not to release it, the whole world and the attack on the intelligence community and on the fbi, and we look at that memo now, and we say, that is what you went to bat for? this is the same fbi that went after college basketball players, for goodness sake! why can't they go expose the truth? >> sean: thank you all for being with us. we have two exclusive interviews when we get back. the house until committee chairman devin nunes will react to the doj inspector general's big announcement today. also right here, we will interview the fbi informant in this mass of uranium one scandal. he was inside putin's network in america a warning everybody and nobody listened. he is right here in studio

10:28 pm
these houses! yes, yes and yes. and don't forget about them. uh huh, sure. still yes! xfinity delivers gig speed to more homes than anyone. now you can get it, too. welcome to the party. >> ♪ >> ♪ >> sean: joining me with reaction to >> sean: joining me now with reaction to tonight's breaking news that the inspector general will investigate potential fisa abuses by the doj and fbi, the chairman of the house until committee, and he's been frankly in the forefront while his colleagues have been lazy, devin nunes is with us. congressman, i'm reaching a point of frustration here. we are talking about with these new speedy 18-page memo's, this was in the 3,000 page doubt that we finally got to the last minute that you had to subpoena. did 1.2 million documents, congressman, and i applaud chairman goodlatte but as we
10:29 pm
just heard from congressman chaffetz, he asked for these documents in 2016. why,y, how is it possible that d rosenstein feels that he has the right to withhold this, not only from the american people, but congress, people like you and bob goodlatte, the chairman of the judiciary committee? airdrop's oversight. we do have checks and balances the last time i checked the constitution, sir t. >> the more they did come the worse it gets for them, sean. we have to keep working, break through it. as i said, eventually we will get all of these documents. so let me walk back a little bit of the history that we have with mr. strzok and mrs. page. in october, i asked what had happened. did not get any information what happened between strzok and page. did not know, we ask, is there anything there waiting to see? finally, we see a link to
10:30 pm
"the washington post" of text messages. at that point, and december, i asked doj to send me everything that was pertinent and relevant to our investigation, as you know at that time, we had informed the department of justice that we were looking at them for fisa abuse and other matters. they produce some of the text messages. which is fine, they did that, they said that is all we needed. a couple months later, a few more text messages show up. a couple weeks ago, there's a conversation between mr. strzok and miss page talking about the fisa court judge. clearly, that would have been something of the house intelligence committee would have been interested in. now the emails and text messages that you arere talking about toy on the show, sean, i have not seen them. however, you have them, we are going to have to try to look through all of us to try to piece together what it appears --is >> sean: what's your initial impression? do you agree with what sara believe in what i believe?
10:31 pm
>> i was talking to a few members of congress today and these are people who don't follow those closely coming out on the house intelligence committee, but they follow it just by the news. they were shocked. they were shocked.. they used a few expletives because they could not believe that the white house, the obama white house, was being briefed byt the fbi on an investigation into the trump campaign. they couldn't believe it. i think that is the reaction you're going to get from most members of congress that care about this issue, the republicans. i think that you will see the americanli people. >> sean: when you have the white house and then you have the -- obviously, obama knew. obviously,ew susan rice new. obviously james comey was informing them. obviously -- this is a very sticky point, because in january of 2017, then president-elect trump was told by james comey that the dossier is salacious
10:32 pm
and unverified. but three months earlier, he's using it in the fbi is using it as the bulk of an application for a fisa warrant against the campaign associate of donald trump in the lead up to a presidential election. it allows them to you than spy on the emails of an opposition party candidate. this is not a game. to me, this is the biggest abuse of power, scandal, we have had in history. you get these ridiculous people on the left making insane watergate analogies, but watergate was a cheap break and come a third rate break-in. this is about the powerful tools of intelligence, the fbi, doj exonerating a presidential candidate from crimes we know were committed. then you have russian information that they didn't verify, not telling a fisa court the whole truth, it is like, what do we need to get the wheels of justice really turning here? i know i am fed up and my audience is that up.
10:33 pm
>> there's a lot of irony in that. the left has continued to say that this is watergate dead trump is going to be impeached. they have continue that. this is effectively boomerang on them. you have half of the american people now know that the other party, the democrats, appear that they weaponize to, to some degree, the intelligence services come by using the intelligence surveillance apparatus in this country to go and target the opposition campaign, is totally unacceptable. that is what happened here. people are beginning to learn the truth. i am happy that bob goodlatte to subpoena the 1.2 million documents. i set this earlier in the week. we need those documents, like, yesterday.ho yesterday we needed thosee documents and what i think now the difference we were from a few months ago, because of the obstruction, because of the cover up, the pressure that the american people are now putting on congress by making everybody
10:34 pm
aware of this, asking their congressman wise of the department of justice can stonewall congress for this loni believe that bob goodlatte's sue enforced. if we don't get the documents, then we should move quickly to contempt and then we should move to impeachment weighed one of the mistakes we made is we never and we never impeached -- >> sean: they got away with it. do you have faith in the inspector general? now he's going to be investigating the fisa abuses, he announced today, i'm frustrated because we have been all over this story since your memo came out. if i was james comey, andrew mccabe, sally yates tonight, rod rhodes rosenstein, strzok,, i'd be very worried based on the possibility that all of it is coming out right if we had an honest inspector general, i am thinking about some of them might be in legal jeopardy in a big way.
10:35 pm
> let me tell you about the inspector general.l. here is what i believe. they have a job to do. this is part of the job that they should be doing. i believe that mr. horwitz, from everything i hear, he's an honorable man and he will do his job. remember, there is a lot of pressures that come with that because the inspector general ultimately, his boss is the department of justice. this is not a simple move for the inspector general to make, to go after the top people in the fbi. is why i think i am glad that mr. horowitz is going to continue to look into this. but i also have a lot of concerns about that there's no one is looking into this. how are you going tos have masr comey testify to the inspector general? is not goingte to sit for an interview and neither is mr. mccabe. >> sean: we need a special counsel as gregg jarrett was saying. you made a conclusion after 14 months, you have no evidence of the trump campaign and collusion or any evidence of any financial
10:36 pm
impropriety with the trump organization and the campaign. but yet even after 14 months every media breathlessly, hysterically reporting and your so-called counterpart in the msnbc wannabe contributor adam schiff who actually shows up on russian tv, which is a little ironic, after all of that, they still -- how long -- really want this investigation in perpetuity? is that what they are looking for, to slow it down, the agenda of the president? >> what i find amazing is that we have a 250 page report, we have 70 findings and recommendations. the democrats have none. we finally sent that over so it can be declassified, the american people can read all of the great work that our committee has done over the last 14 months. he had to find me one mainstream
10:37 pm
media outlet, just find me one, that has done any coverage whatsoever of any significance on the 70 findings and recommendations. you won't find it. >> sean: they are too busy trying to act like jerry springer. last question. you have watched our coverage. is there anything that i've reported that has been wrong, sara, gregg jarrett, jay sekulow, tom fitton, sebastian gorka, dominic? 's take a look, sean, i think you guys have been ahead of the curve on this. a lot of times, there is information that some of the reporters you mention, they have it well before the congress has it. it's very tough. it's very, very tough work that they are having to get to because you have so many people. if you come out of a story, just like the story tonight about these text messages that you guys have uncovered, you are not going to see this cover to the mainstream media.ov you are not going to see it. i guarantee you, it won't happen over the next week. >> sean: we need the
10:38 pm
1.2 million documents and we need a special counsel. congressmanha nunes, thank you r trying to be transparent and honest to the american people. we appreciate it more than you know. joining us now is william douglas campbell. he is the uranium on fbi informant. to protect the identity of mr. campbell, we have had to put hime in shadows. sir, it's an honor to see you. we welcome each of the program. you have worked as an operative, if i can use that term, for multiplemu agencies for how many years? >> 30 years. >> sean: and you first got involved -- you were within a putin russian operation within the united states since 2009, correct? >> actually earlier than that. my work, when it was handed over to the fbi, started in 2005, and i was under ultimately formal
10:39 pm
contract and an associate partner with the russian government and its senior russian nuclearen leadership, wo worked directly and indirectly by appointment of putin. >> sean: when you say handed over, you're talking about 30 years you've served your country, would it be fair to say in dangerous situations at times? >> yes, sir, you could say that. >> sean: life-threatening may be? >> you could say that. >> sean: at some point, mr. campbell, your life is at risk, use the russians have infiltrated the united states of america, the they are living within america, and at some point you became aware that russia wanted to get a foothold in the uranium industry and that they were going to look at this conglomeration known -- that we now know as uranium one, and that deal was going to give them that foothold, if, in fact, it was approved by nongovernment agencies. >> yes, sir. there was no question about it. >> sean: and the fbi knew that? >> the bureau knew it. the uranium one position was
10:40 pm

10:41 pm
>> sean: that they have confidence that obama was signed off on this deal? >> they were quite sure that obama and the administration who they had deemed and labeled as being very weak, multiple times, would respond favorably. >> sean: you're a patriotic american. you're risking your life, i got to imagine hearing your country is weak in your president and secretary of state are weak, i would be -- i would feel bad for my country. >> mr. hannity, i reacted to it and i challenged my fbi handlers, as to why the hill all thedl work done monitoring the successful russian strategy that i had been reporting since 2005, 2006, had fallen by the wayside and the approval had been allowed to succeed. >> sean: what was there possible -- there is no reason -- i can't expect any reasonable explanation as to why america would hand over america's precious uranium when we don't have enough prey to

♪ >> sean: there are multiple big breaking news stories tonight involving the white house. joining us live from washington as fox news chief national correspondent, ed henry. it's not as cold as it used to be. i used to feel bad, 20 below, here's ed henry. you still have your big jacket on. >> it's a little -- it's raining tonight, shawn. bottom line is, a senior officials are cheering the fact that there is going to be this justice department inspector general investigation by michael horowitz into exactly what happened h with fisa abuse. president trump, as you know,w, has been pushing for this for sometime prey to some sort of scrutiny out of top obama officials and former fbi offici, and james comey. remember, attorney general jeff sessions just a few weeks ago said he wanted the inspector general to look at this, some supporters of the president said the inspector general would bury this and that sessions had made a mistake. this is a sign horowitz may be
10:49 pm
moving full speed ahead on what devin nunes first revealed, ason you mentioned with this memo, laying out how top officials in the obama administration brought that warrant from the fisa court to spy on carter page. mostme importantly, comey, mccabe, christopher steele's anti-trump dossier without telling the judge that the dnc and the clinton campaignph had paid for that dirt. democrats have been deeply skeptical about this fisa abuse, that it will lead anywhere. they've also been skeptical that the president will be able to get any momentum on his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration. the president today tweeted out praise for officials in orange county for standing up to that states sanctuary policies in california. he also received a briefing, as you can see, on border wall prototypes.g as we learned, and the california town they have only replaced more than 2 miles of a tiny barrier that was built years ago. they've now replaced it with a
10:50 pm
30-foot high wall, like one of the prototypes the president was looking at a couple of weeks ago. the trump administration is starting to build this wall, not all at once, but piece by piece. the president, by the way, last story tonight, also tweeting about north korea, saying, "for years and for many administrations, everyone said that peace in the denuclearization of the korean peninsula was not a small possibility. now there is a good chance that kim jong un will do it for his humanity. look forward to our meeting." the president sealed a new trade deal with south korea and said he wants to move from the economy to start dealing with security issues on the korean peninsula. >> sean: i just want to do one follow-up because is a story, obviously, we've been breaking news on for months now. more particularly, especially since the nunes memo came out.
10:51 pm
how can the democrats be unhappy or think it is not going anywhere, the whole fisa abuse scandal, when they knew, meaning the fbi, and those that were involved in the application, the original fisa application, that hillary bought and paid for it, they never told the fisa judge that fact, and secondly, it all turned out, a lot of it turned out to be lies and none of it was corroborated or verified by the fbi, which is a matter of fisa law and fbi protocol. >> is a problem for democrats. after devin nunes came out with that republican memo, all kinds of criticism, taking information out of context, all kinds of allegations. when adamds schiff, the top democrat on the intelligence committee, has his bite of the apple, if you will, put out the democratic memo, it did not review the key findings you are laying out about alleged fisa abuse in the obama administration. michael horowitz, let's not forget, is someone who was first nominated to the senior federal post going back to the george w. bush days that was appointed to a post by then president barack obama. he is someone who -- no one is perfectly nonpartisan, but i he seen as a fairly honest broker.
10:52 pm
you're right, it will be hard for democrats to just dismiss this as nothing. >> sean: release the strzok-page memos. there's more to come. it ed henry, thank you. joining us now, white house senior advisor for strategicou communications, mercedes schlapp. the white house should be happy that in fact this will be investigated. we are still waiting on the first horowitz report, inspector general report. now i understand that has been delayed. it has got to be frustrating at the white house, the wheels of justice, growing so slowly, mercedes. >> clearlyly with the president wants is transparency. he wants to make sure that he could look into the fisa andd se if there was any political usage. there's always been concerned about that. i think that is with the president will be pushing for. >> sean: i think there was abuses. i think i will be more opinionated than you. as i said, she paid for it, hillary. they never told the fisa court. that would be deception. the fbi has an obligation to verify it.
10:53 pm
they never did. fusion gps never did. then they are leaking phony information, unverified information, not telling the fisa court judges. where does the president's dance tonight on the issue of the military? is our commander in chief. it is his number one responsibility. we know he had an increase in the defense budget. i can think of a more importantr issue to national security than building the wall. drug dealers, drugs coming across, human trafficking, the possibility that enemies in this country can cross over act will, does he have the ability? will use the defense budget money to build the wall? >> the president is exploring a variety of options at this point. clearly what we are seeing is that with the budget money that has been coming in, the $1.6 billion that was agreed upon, it's definitely an investment. a down payment and to ensuring that we have border wall and fencing and new construction. that is critical. as ed henryth mentioned, there
