10:01 pm
inspector general, he can investigate. thisis is only providing cover r his deep state friends and trying to delay what will be inevitable bad idea, i will tel you why. also, the media and even hillary clinton's former top campaign aide for decades, mark penn, are now starting to admit what a huge abuse of power scandal... also it's a we have all of theseta deep state actors, john brennan, sally yates, all melting down over these spy revelations. so it has predation, they are predictably looking lashing out president trump. sara carter is reporting that the fisa memos could very well hold the key to the obama fbi trump surveillance. we have a lot to go. stay with us for the hour. this is an important breaking news opening monologue. brand-new tonight, after a meeting with trump, the fbi director christopher wray, rod
10:02 pm
rosenstein, otherro top intel officials, the white house is saying president trump and the department of justicet are now inspector general to investigate the obama administration and this playing dated on the trump campaign. the white house is also revealing tonight that chief of staff john kelly, general kelly, is setting up a meeting for congress so they will see the documents that constitutionally they have been asking for and the doj has been obstructing and stonewalling. really?t i'll believe it when i see those documents. this is the same material that rod rosenstein has refused to turn over four months. now his name, by the way, you want to keep an eye on. i will have more on rosenstein in a minute. first, what's unfolding about the deep state is so dramatic, so i shocking, but of the same time, so very predictable, giving everything we have now been uncovering for over 18 months. we s are now seeing the cracks n the deep state, it's about to burst, and all of this information is now beginning to
10:03 pm
cascade out. even "the new york times," "the washington post," are now confirming just inco the last week, everything we have been uncovering for 18 months. it is the biggest abuse of power corruption scandal that makes watergate look like a parking ticket. thousands of committee chair devin nunes, he is reacting by saying, this is crossing a serious redline, very important. >> if they ran a spy ring or informant ring and they were paying people within the trump campaign, if any of that is true, that is an absolute redline. there is not an honest person in this country that thinks it's okay if sources, informants, whatever you want to call them, go around and start passing out money all over the globe to do what? to secretly put yourself into a presidential campaign? that is not acceptable. >> sean: that is not acceptable in the united states of america.
10:04 pm
chairman nunes is also saying there might be more than one fbi informant? you got to be kidding me. watch this. >> nobody was ever interested in an informant. we ask for specific documents that we still have not received from the department of justice. soso they continue to leak out things about thisab informant ad we don't know if there is one informant or more informants because there is so much out theree now, it's really getting tough to follow. all we are asking for is, give us the documentation that you used just for this investigation. >> sean:d handed over. these type of tactics, spying in an opposition party in an election year, are you kidding me? this is what you would see the former soviet union duke, venezuela, not the united states of america. just look at this quote from "the wall street journal" editorial board. listen to this. we cannot recall a similar case, even in the j. edgar hoover days, when theev fbi decided it needed to snoop on a
10:05 pm
presidential campaign. this is the same j. edgar hoover who was notorious for having files on just about everyone and washington. that is how serious all of this is. even clinton aide and advisor mark penn, who smirked with the clintons for 20 years, is calling out the scandal for what it is. this is a game changing moment and heg has worked for the clinton's forever and served as hillary's chief strategist for her campaign in 2008. he is now calling this witch hunt for what it is. literally writing an op-ed in "the hill," stopping robert mueller to protect us all. stunning headline. he goes on to explain how the facts are now undeniable. mueller and is on a crusade to get the president of the united states, duly elected president, he uses the term deep state, that it's real, that the rigged the content investigation and been targeted donald trump and his campaign, when he was president-elect, and now president. he explained more on this on my
10:06 pm
story with martha maccallum earlier tonight. take a look. >> i think the inspector general's report is coming out, i think nunes is finding out what were the origins of the investigation, and there doesn't seem to be a real concrete intelligence origin for this investigation without a foundation, one wonders, what did we spend an entire year on. what did we disrupt everyone he was of a campaign, everyone in the administration? >> sean: also former solicitor general for the u.s., he's out with a new piece where he explains how robert mueller's witch hunt could be setting up a massive constitutional crisis. of course, investigative reporter cheryl atkinson, she has a defining piece and all of this, literally called "the collusion against trump: an entire timeline." she breaks down every single moment in w this massive abuse f power scandal. we will refer to this throughout history because it's been going on for 18 months.
10:07 pm
the mainstream media, even they finally are starting to catch on and admit that what we have been reporting and what others are michelle have been reporting and other people, what we have been covering, we are now being proven right. they have to admit it. look at this headline from "the washington post" over the weekend. "secret fbi " source for roster investigation met with three trump advisors of the trump campaign." "usa today," look at this cover -- even fake news liberal cnn, they can't ignore all of theor facts, all of the evidenc. okay, is taking the wall over a year but finally media starting to realize that they have missed the single biggest story in there lifetime as they have. thrush, russia, stormy. a massive abuse ofve power. we first reported on this march 7th, 2017 kim about fisa surveillance of the trump campaign. trump campaign, he has every single right tonightsi to be oud
10:08 pm
about what is happening. he has every right to want to know the truth. you, the american people, need to know the truth. we need to expose all of this criminal behavior, all of these deep state actors need to be exposed, and all of them held accountable. the deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, okay, he's quick to respond to president trump, demanding the department of justice get to the bottom of it all. so rosenstein is trying to make himself hard to be a hero but it's a total farce. here's why. rosenstein is doing what he alwayst does, and that is protecting all of his deep state friends. the deputy attorney general, he knows that by referring this to be inspector general, it will buy them a year to 18 months and protect all of these deep state actors. it will take michael horowitz well over a year. we don't have over a year to uncover this. we need a full fbi, doj, rank andfi file, field office investigationon into all of thi. what they are trying to do is slowly leak out this
10:09 pm
information, a slow bleed, to cover themselves. it is all a cya. remember,no they know what's out there. they know they are about to get caught. this is all about controlling the narrative, spinning the narrative, trying p to protect themselves and they probably learned a thingro or two from hillary about acid washing hard drives. we've got to be careful. there is another major component to all of this. rosenstein knows that the inspector general, he doesn't have any real prosecutorial power. horwitz can't convene a grand jury. he cannot indict people. he can only give criminal referrals like in the case of andrew mccabe. on top of all of that, as we are seeing with this ig report on the clinton email investigation, the fbi, they doj, both get to review and try and refute facts and redact information, again, probably falsely, and the name of national security. we have been sayingg congress needs to see these documents. we have checks and balances, separation of powers, coequal branches of government, and you
10:10 pm
know o what? they are purposely obstructed. it looks like some of this might start to happen. all right, sara carter, she'll join us in a few minutes. bringing another exclusive story tonight. the headline. "concealed the fisa documents may hold the key to trump's surveillance." what sara is a warning, a number of very key details, rod rosenstein, he signed the final fisa warrant, using the fake, phony dossier as the bulk of information. why? to spy on trump campaign associate carter page. using the unverified, never corroborated, clinton bought and paid for foreign national put together dossier of russian lie lies. reporting thato back in april the fbi refused to turn over documents that german nunes and others have been asking for, you know, phony claims of national security risks. have seen, it it is one excuses for a while after another, also prevent congress from knowing the truth and
10:11 pm
fulfilling their constitutional role. german nunes is putting his foot down. in this standoff with rosenstein and the doj, good for devin nunes. take a look. >> i we had what i thought was a productive meeting. they do nothing n but leak and leak and leak. we don't knowt who it is of the department of justice or her fbi, not pinning any blame on people but we are not going to go to another meeting where we don't get documents, and then the meeting leaks out. >> sean: the chairman is getting close. the entire truth is now starting to come out, thankfully. by the way, despite rosenstein stonewalling, and because of all of these developments, you have deep state actors, former communist voting john brennan, how we ever became cia director is beyond any contract on my comprehension i have, we know james clapper, sally yates, her political agenda, they are losing their minds because all of them are about to be exposed. james brennan lashing out at
10:12 pm
president trump, tweeting "senator mcconnell, speaker ryan, if mr. trump continues along this disastrous path, you will bear major responsibility for the harm to our democracy." by the way, we are a republic. you do a great disservice to our nation and the republican party if you continue to enable mr. trump's self-serving actions." he is off to his eyeballs in all this. i'm certain that will be exposed. as we've been saying on this program, he has been lying about his involvement with this clinton bought and paid for dossier four months. he liked a friend of congress. as for james clapper, he is ensnared in ae' dossier scandal also. clapper, oh, what is his response? trust legates and brennan, let's go after the president and attack him. >> that is a very disturbing assault on the independence of the department of justice, and i think when the president, this president or any president,
10:13 pm
tries to use the department of justice as the private investigatory body, that is not good for the country. the big thing here, this is not about spying on his campaign. it's about what the russians are doing. were they attempting to infiltrate the campaign? that was a concern, and that, in my belief, is what focus of this whole activity was about. >> sean: the same clapper who braggedea about the fbi spying n the trump campaign and said it was a good thing? this is problematic. then there's good old sally yates, who signed off on, yes, one of the fisa warrants like rosenstein and was emailing with andrew weissmann, the most corrupt member of mueller's team, after she refused to enforce the travel ban. yates is also trashing the president. why? to save and protect yourself. watchh this. >> donald trump himself accusing the obama administration of improperly targeting his campaign for an investigation.
10:14 pm
what is your response to y everything you've heard over the weekend? >> well,l, obviously, i'm not going to comment on the specific facts, that's really up to the department of justice to decide on what information should be made public with respect to that. but i think what we are seeing here is the president has just taken his all-out assault on the rule of law to a new level. this time, he is ordering an investigation of the investigators. they are examining his ownwn campaign. you know, that is really shocking. >> sean: what a hard-hitting interview by liberal joe. all three of these deep state players arerv scared out of ther minds. they are directly implicated in all this. it is time to ask, what do they all know? winter they all know it? just like i've been saying about their deep state friend, james comey, who, by the way, i, warned you, you have the right to remain silent, you didn't listen -- by the way, instead of running their mouths, they might want to lawyer up and many of them are. yeah, james comey hired three
10:15 pm
lawyers, three people he leaked documents too. great attorney-client privilege for everyone but me. another big development to tell you about tonight. the soon-to-be released doj ig report from a cogent email server, is expected to slam fbi leaders just like comey, andrew mccabe, for taking weeks to review emails that were found on huma abedin's shared computer with anthony weiner. the ig report is supposed to come out very soon and if the inspector general, horwitz, does his job, and his 500 employees, comey and mccabe should be very worried tonight. a lot of ground to cover. joining us now, fox news contributor sara carter. former u.s. attorney for the district of columbia, joe digenova. i said to you last time, joe, when you were on this program, i cringe. my mom was a prison guard. my dad worked in family court probation. i have so many extended family
10:16 pm
members in the nypd and the fbi. and you say bad cops. i know the 99% are not. they are good people for this country. but we know tonight, you have been right, and what we have been reporting, sara included, she has been right. >> i think the sad thing about this, he watched someone like sally yates who was the deputy attorney general under obama and acting attorney general for a while, complain about the rule of law and the violation of it would she and brennan and comey and others destroyed the rule of law and the obama administratio administration. they introduced it, they besmirched it to. they were so politically motivated that they have now destroyed the department of justice and the fbi. a decade toto take rebuild the public trust in the fbi and the department of justice becauseep sally yates, o just joined a fancy law firm in
10:17 pm
atlanta, is going to need to lawyer up. the disgraceful performance of her and of course even more disgraceful, john brennan, who led a conspiracy against a campaign of the opposing party's presidential nominee and then when he won them i did everything could to frame him and his compatriots with false crimes. w it is the greatest political scandal in american history and shame on sally yates and shame on john brennan. >> sean: wow. such a powerful commentary and sadly it's all true. sara carter, march 7th, 2017. you and john solomon, right here on this show, broke the news about the trump campaign being surveilled. you are now saying that concealed the fisa documents, the warrants, the original applications, the bulk of
10:18 pm
information as the nunes and grassley have a grand memo sent, came from a dossier that hillary paid for and they lied to fisa judges.nt how are those documents, and i hear there are other documents, if they are ever released, will expose all of it, which is why the ig report is a bad idea, or calling the ig route is a bad idea. >> i think going with the ig is fine, as long as the documents are turned over. that is what is important here. these documents are associated with the fisa applications. remember, they were focused crispies and applications starting inta october 21st, 201, and then it rolled all the way to september, 2017, that seven-months into president trump's administration. and these were all on carter page but they also brought in a dragnet of everyone that carter page spoke to and possibly people that those people spoke to. now there was evidence attached to these fisa applications. remember, it is not just the dossier.
10:19 pm
there was other extenuating evidence that was attached. these are probably part of the documents that they are requesting. remember, this was a classified letter that nunes sent. no one has seen it. what is important now, sean, is that they get those documents because the house intelligence committee and the senate judiciary --he speed when there is something that no one in american robotics forr hillary clinton. >> that's right. these are held on servers that are highly guarded and protected at the fbi. i don't believe -- i'm not 100% positive that this could be destroyed. what i know they need to do is show those documents without productions. they need to have people in there that understand what is going on. they need to have people inside that can actually read the document, not just congressional leaders. john kelly is going to be setting up the meeting but i hope that the president got confirmation from both rod rosenstein and christopher wray that theyan will be delivering those documents and i hope that
10:20 pm
the appropriate investigators with the right clearance are ablele to get into this meeting and examine those documents. >> sean: i hope the president is demanding it because he has the power to demand it and the power to see it unredacted and the power also to declassify it if need be. joe, by the way, i told sara last week -- will i recognize the initials of the informant? yet, we all recognize them. i thought i was being clever. now we are discovering, two separate reports, he got paid and a two year. lack of time, between 400,000 may be a million. we also learned from devin nunes, we might have a second spy on the presidential candidate? i read "the wall street journal" but now you got people that everyone respects, former solicitor general, mark penn, cheryl atkinson, it's devastating to the entire story, the entire narrative. your reaction to all of this? >> here's the thing.
10:21 pm
inspector general's are good in certain circumstances. here's's the problem with mr. horwitz. he cannot interview any of the people who have led the department of justice were fbi. he has no subpoena authority. so all of the people who were part of the plot and were in doj and the fbi are gone. he can't talk to them. all he can do is review documents and talk to whoever is left to do that. what we need is a federal grand jury with a prosecutor, doesn't have to be a special counsel, and by the way, let's remember why we are here. we are here because rod rosenstein, a political coward, someone who was inadvertently made deputy attorney general, appointed robert mueller illegally with no evidence that any crime had been committed. and here we are, more than a yeare later, with nothing having been determined except that there was no rush in collusion. all of these people having been put through hell because rod rosenstein couldn't do what he should have done, not only is he conflicted because he was a
10:22 pm
witness, and he signed some of the warrants, guess what, suppose there was activity, which i believe there was, that went beyond the law. rod rosenstein is not only a witness, he would be a coconspirator. this is ludicrous, when you think that the president of the united states has to demand an investigation into something that is so obviously criminal, and now general kelly is telling rod rosenstein, show them the documents. >> sean: is joe right about rod rosenstein and? we have about 35 seconds, sara. >> i believe joe is right about rod rosenstein. he has been stonewalling congress, he has been stonewalling everyone on the release about the released documents over and over again. i believe that nunes and the rest of them mean it. if he takes the next meeting, he better bring the documents so they can see them that's about the right people can see them. >> sean: i think he is sending his own demise.
10:23 pm
>> he signed that last fisa warrant. >> sean: you guys have been amazing. thank you for your hard work. when we come back, ed henry, more details of the presidents g meeting with rosenstein, newt gingrich, and much more straight ahead. ♪ come fly with me, let's fly, let's fly away. ♪ they have businesses to run they have passions to pursue how do they avoid trips to the post office? mail letters ship packages all the amazing services of the post office

10:26 pm
10:27 pm
>> sean: all right. joining us live from the white house, more details of the president's high stakes meeting with the deputy attorney >> sean: joining us now live from the white house, more details of the president's high-stakes meeting with the deputy attorney general rod rosenstein, fox news chief national correspondent ed henry. i want to believe the documents are coming until they are sent to. >> a lot ofse scabbed them skepticism about that. especially when you have people like sally yates i was dead from the justice department last yea, saying thathe she believes thath acknowledged olive assault on
10:28 pm
democracy, by asking to investigate what happened. i will tell you, republicans like devin nunes are pushing back tonight, saying that sally yates and other obama officials are just trying to divert attention from the real story, that in the words of nunes, a red line was crossed with the fbi allegedly infiltrated the trump campaign and allegedly spied on it. a that meeting you mentioned, the president with rod rosenstein, christopher wray, the fbi director, they basically -- the president was demanding a new investigation to find out how this pressure probe started. the president it appears got some concrete action. press secretary sarah sanders telling us "based on the meeting with president, the department of justice has asked the department addresses to expand its current investigation to include any irregularities with the fbi's department of justices tactics with regard to the trump campaign. it was also agreed that john kelly was immediately set up a meeting with the fbi, doj, and director of national intelligence with correct all my congressional leaders to review highly classified and
10:29 pm
other information they have requested." that means that he will be working with nunes and others to get the documents that nunes has demanding for weeks now about this confidential informant, nunes saying there needs to be transparency as democrats like adam schiff object. >> this is a dramatic end to new and destructive loaf for the congress of the united states, basically to ignore the warnings of the fbi and justice department and potentially risk people's lives. what they would like this information for is clearly to be of service to the trump defense team, and further any narrative they have. >> we don't know if there is one informant or more informants because there is so much out there now, it is really getting tough to follow. all we are asking for, give us the documentation that you used it to this investigation. >> fox news also learning tonight that the long-awaited justice department inspector general report looking at the fbi, justice department's handling of the hillary clinton email investigation, has found among other things i james comey
10:30 pm
and andy mccabe, his former number two at the fbi, who was ousted, acted improperly by not moving quickly enough on those emails that appeared in september of 2016. they didn't act on them, look into them, the new clinton email sound on anthony weiner's laptof other things under scrutiny, which show, sean, it is not just the handling of the trump investigation, with the handling of the content and investigation by the a doj and fbi still very much under investigation. >> sean: deep state being exposed, mueller's witch hunt is crashing in, fascinating times. great report. ed henry at the white house. joining us now, "wall street journal"'s fp kimberley strassel. the first journalist to expose the scandal two weeks ago, the fact that the fbi used an informant to spy on the trump campaign. along with fox news contributor jason chaffetz. ii love "the wall street journa" and their comments today, they're editorial, kimberly, i thought it was devastating.
10:31 pm
also the calls on the obama administration, they are calling on obama. what did he know, when did he know what? nunes saying there might be a second spy. >> yeah, this is really important, firstst of all, for people to remember that the department of justice, which is now out there hinting and tell mike and various partisans like adam schiff, somehow congressman nunes and others are responsiblr blowing this source. they leak these details differently news sources, everything short of those guys name and social security number -- >> sean: bingo. >> just so they could get ahead of this and spend it the way they want to do so the new the noose was tightening and they would be forced to put on these documents. this is the other important part, too. none of us had really had enough information on we know a lot about what the fbi did, although not enough, what we don't know, though, as with the political side of this operationhi is.
10:32 pm
we know clinton's campaign had thisis dossier. who else had it in the obama administration? and what other agenciesti were involved in efforts to go after the trump campaign prior to the fbi'she claim of its official start of the investigation? >> sean: i'll say it, i don't want to bring former congressman jason chaffetz, adam schiff is the worst, almost as bad as fake news conspiracy msnbc and cnn prayer baker points, they paid , they liked it, they are the ones whoea did it but paying ths guy, money, may be a second spy? i don't think they will hand out the documents if they can get away with it. congressman chief it's, you reqd some of this very same information well over a year ago, and it's never been forthcoming. >> there was a subpoena issued in 2016 for all of the documents that we wanted to see.
10:33 pm
the inspector general can get these documents. if he hasn't already, i hope he has gathered them up. i think the deep state is understanding that the truthde s going to surface and that is why they are leaking this information to friendly news sources to put their own spin on it. i think kim strassel has done some of the best reporting on that. m i gotot to tell you, you have bn true in general -- jeff sessio, they are in name only, he is worthless, rod rosenstein, there with an oxygen mask, he's totally conflicted. i'm excited what's the members of the house will do tomorrow. i think there's a group of five members that will put forward aa resolution. >> sean: i heard that rod rosenstein has a vicious temper and is on edge every day screaming at people. have you heard that, congressman? >> it is in pretty over there. if you>> look over at rod rosenstein, and you like the democrats, adam schiff, the political hack that is just
10:34 pm
desperate not to have the truth come out, he doesn't want to have truth come out. he doesn't want to expose what is going on. devin nunes as part of the gang of eight! >> sean: i agree with congressman chaffetz. you join a great job. kimberly, last word. >> this has to be declassified. congress needs to see at first but then every one of us has to see it. >> sean: the president can demand they turn them over now. correct? >> yep. >> yes. >> he's the president of the united states. the only constitutionally elected person and he can declassify it. >> sean: now. i was eight to the president, do it now. do notte wait 18 months for theg to investigate with 500 people and then we'll find out later. they will do everything they can to spin it come alive, weak. when we come back, former speaker of the house newt gingrich weighs in on

>> sean: reaction to the big breaki >> sean: here with reaction tonight's big breaking news, author of the upcoming book, out june 5th and available for preorder now,,, "trump's america," former speaker of the house, fox news contributor, newt gingrich. i want to talk about your book but not now. this -- sorry. i love you, you are family to me, but when you look at this, and ted olson, and mark penn, and cheryl atkinson, and now "the new york times" and "washington post," well, trying to get ahead of what they failed to do for a year and a half, and to the state israel, and the effort too undermine the president is real, fisa abuse spies and the trump champion are real, you are the greatt historian. tell me where in history this
10:40 pm
will stack up to. >> i think it is rapidly becoming the biggest and the most sobering political scandal in american history. somebody pointed out earlier, paquin j. edgar hoover opposed spying on lyndon johnson's richard nixon, we thought it was terrible. back when we had a break in at watergate, without it was terrible. this is a multiyear effort that has two different fronts. people always remember, one front was protecting, for bill and hillary clinton. the other front, as trump becamr more and more serious, the other front was to stop trump at any cost. i believe that the reason you see people like sally yatesha go berserk, general clapper go berserk, they are all -- when you see someone of the obama team whore get that rattled when
10:41 pm
they are that angry, what you know is they are scared to death but they are going to get drawn into all of this and their role is going to come out and it will involve i think felonies. frankly, i suspected it reaches to president obama. it is inconceivable that president obama could have had this many things going on andno not known it. his administration was very controlling and very tight. i think we are going to start seeing all the stuff ending up with the obama white house and has the president and his senior staff's fingerprints all over it. >> sean: the question remains, what did he know? what did john carry no? what did susan rice and ben rhodes no? we haven't even talked about unmasking. hillary gets a rigged unmasking and then comes the power to undermine a candidate, and president-elect, and the president of united states. you put spies, lying to pfizer

judges? >> i think the number one thing the average every day american kente from all of this is that the corruption wasn't so deep at the top. remember, we are not talking about the everyday fbi agent doing their job. we are talking about people at the very job, and those people were so corrupt and arrogant that they thought they could get away with anything. so they just proceeded down the road, protecting hillary, covering up hillary, giving immunity to people who were breaking the law and then going after trump and going after trump supporters. when all of this comes out in a way that is easy to understand, it may tank, frankly, another year and a half because it is so much, and every time we turn around, another piece unravels. you'veig had more big stories in the last year and a half than i would have thought possible and

again and again, you have been right, and inch by inch, even "the new york times" is starting to concede. by the way, mark penn's column today was a real breakthrough, a genuine, unqualified member of the left saying this is a threat to all of us, and we have got to get rid of mueller because he literally threatens every american. >> sean: mr. speaker, you understand the constitution. you understand checks and balances, separation of powers, constitutionalor authority, oversight of congress. how dare rod rosenstein, who already is conflicted in this by recommending the firing of comey and signing one of the fisa warrants, how dare they not turn this over to congress? with that is what they have done. what should congress do? you were a former speaker. >> first of all, i think it is beginning to move in the right direction. i think the president is beginning to weigh in, to reinforce the republicans in congress.

i think general kelly being given this assignment, he is a very tough, very serious man. i h think he is going to imposen the justice department doing their job of turning over it legitimate, appropriate information to legislative branch. but everybody ought to remember, you mentioned the constitution. remember that when they were done writing it, benjamin franklin was asked by a woman, what have we got? and he said, we have a republic if we can keep it. this is one of those great tests in american history. corruptionon came close to destroying the liberties you and i believe in. >> sean: of hillary got elected, none of this would have come out. mr. speaker, we appreciate your perspective as always. i promise i will be promoting your book. i know it is going to be great. we come back, former obama cia director, communist support
