tv   Hannity  FOX News  July 9, 2019 10:00pm-11:00pm PDT

10:00 pm
fox. that is that for us tonight. we'll be back tomorrow, 8:00, the show that is the sincere and sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink. have a great night.. sean hannity is next. ♪ >> sean: welcome to "hannity." breaking tonight, the investigation into the deep state's abuse of power has now come full circle. finally. fox news tonight can confirm, christopher steele, the former mi6 agent, who created the dirty clinton bought and paid for russian dossier was in fact grilled by federal prosecutors in june. the interview with steele reportedly lasted over 15 hours. it was conducted by lawyers that were working for the doj's inspector general, that is michael horowitz. this is 1 of 2 reasons that the ig report is delayed. the other being key witnesses i now at the last minute have finally decided to cooperate. this is going to get veryhe interesting but make no mistake about it: a crucial development in the ig's investigation into fisa abuse.
10:01 pm
that would be james comey, sally yates, andrew mccabe, and, yeah, even rod rosenstein should be very worried tonight. we know for a fact that steele's dirty dossier, bought and paid for by hillary clinton, was unverified, as a matter of fact, unverifiable. full of salacious lies, even christopher steele himself previously admitted under oath he had no idea whether any of the contents were true or we know "the new york times" now suggesting that that dossier, russian dossier, was full of russian misinformation from the get-go to influence the 2016 elections and more. robert mueller, trying to understand, maybe we'll find out next wednesday, why did you and your team have for fara violations, loan applications from years gone by? taxi medallions, taxes from
10:02 pm
years gone by? how did you possibly ignore hillary clinton's bought and paid for russian lies used to get a warrant to spy on the trump campaign, the trump transition, and the trump presidency? of course, we also know christopher steele hated donald trump and he was being paid a ton of money -- lets seeb he is being paid by the clinton campaign, the dnc, the fbi, and some oligarchs. good gig if he can get it. four people pay you for lies. so steele spread his b.s.,eo anti-trump rumors to anyone and everyone who would listen, including high-level officialsls in the fbi, the doj, obama's state department, the intel community, and we now know multiple media outlets. even after he was fired for lying and leaking by the fbi, he was still using bruce ohr to funnel more lies, this time tonn mueller and his team of witch hunters. by the way, did mueller use anyt of this information? great question for next wednesday. because of steele's rampant bias, conflict of interest, and blatant inaccuracies
10:03 pm
in his so-called research multiple serious redup flags wee raised by officials at the fbi, the state department, and many, many others. that did not seem to matter to james comey, the super patriot. he used the phony russian dossier, filled with these lies, as the basis for the fisa warrant application. that's right, to spy on the trump campaign. the evidence was true and accurate, he swore that, i am told at the top of the fisa applications says "verified." we know it is nothing but. joining us with so much more on steele's time in theno hot seat, our own catherine herridge. catherine, one thing that stands out is if he testified 15 hours, we know in an interrogatory under oath under the threat a of perjury, he went on the record saying he didn't know if anybody was true. >> that's right, sean, good evening. based on our reporting, the former british spy christopher steele was concerned he would get "thrown under the bus" in the inspector general's
10:04 pm
report and the appointment of u.s. attorney john durham to investigate the origins of the russia probe ramped up the pressure on steele to cooperate. fox news reported that a key witness outside the fbi and justice department had agreed to talk to the inspector general michael horowitz at the 11th hour and that it now appears to be steele. reuters broke news that he was interviewed in the u.k. in june by three lawyers from the inspector general's office andye as we reported on your show last night, these late-breaking developments required some witnesses to be reinterviewed to deconflict their accounts. citing another potentially significant detail that steele was apparently interviewed twice rby investigators working for special counsel robert mueller in september 2017. the nearly 500 page report makes no direct reference to the so-called steele dossier used to secure the surveillance warrant for trump campaign aide. dossier instead, steele reporting, or steele report, which has the effect of minimizing the fact that democrats paid for the opposition research used by the fbi and doj to secure thates surveillance warrant in october 2016 and then they used
10:05 pm
it again to secure multiple ir renewals, sean. >> sean: unbelievable.o now we know why the inspector general has been delayed, interviewing steele, these other people coming forward, as per your report last night. a great work as always, catherine herridge in washington it has been said, absolute power corrupts absolutely. nowhere is this more obvious than the russia with hunt. robert mueller's merry band of democratic donors were given a big platform and tremendous power to investigate all things donald trump and russian interference. while they found no collusion, no conspiracy, no chargeable obstruction, they did manage to wreck the lives of multiple people that were associated with the president. of course, with strong arm tactics that should make every single american concerned. if you care about constitutional and civil liberties. by the way, not even war hero lieutenant general michael flynn, 33 years of service, he was not spared either.
10:06 pm
the combat vet fell victim to victim to what was a perjury trap. mccabe, comey bragging about it. he and members of his family were threatened with significant prison time. his screws were turned in the hopes that he would sing or compose as judge ellis one said, and in the process mounting legal bills wrecked his family finances. he had to sell his house, he ultimately agreed to plead guilty to lying to the fbi and the fbi did not think he lied. he did it to save his family and his son in particular. tonight thanks to investigative reporter sara carter, we are learning some damning newti information about flynn's plea deal and according to legal counsel, the ever so powerful and smart sydney powell, persecutors wanted flynn to lie under oath against the former business partner in a case surrounding again a fara violation. a recent defense filingg states, "the prosecutors have been
10:07 pm
adamant that mr. flynn testified, that he authorized the filing of the fara form knowing and attending thatf it contained false statements. mr. flynn cannot give that testimony because it is not true." according to sara carter's reporting, because flynn is refusing to give the testimony they are demanding that he says is not true, federal prosecutori are now planning to portray flynn as a coconspirator in the case. what does that mean for lieutenant general flynn tonight? here now with the full report, fox news investigative reporter sara carter. you know what is so unbelievable about -- fara violations were never a big deal. you know, mueller and his team, they ignored the russian dossier, which we know was spread before the election to influence the american voters, "washington post," david corn, michael isikoff. not one bit of information on the paid for russian lies. that became also the basis for the fisa applications. >> that is so true, sean. this is so important about what sidney powell put in her brief,
10:08 pm
which by the way was unsealed in the eastern district of virginia just today. what is important about it is that we learned so much more about how they were targetingg michael flynn from the very beginning. we learned that david loughman, the head of the national security division of the department of justice, himself,g forced flynn, forced flynn to sign the fara, not only did flynn hire attorneys who areeg experts in the fara, a foreign agents registration act, they hired robert kellner, who was one of the top attorneys in washington, d.c. but he was also with flynn while they signed the fara.n they looked at it in detail, according to the brief, that every part of that fara application was looked at in detail before flynn i signed it. flynn signed off on the fara every single time and now even though they have been callingpa him a cooperating witness, the
10:09 pm
entire time they've been dealing with his former business partner, they called flynn a cooperating witness, now they want to call him a. coconspirator. just because, as he said, he decided and said, i can't lie. when i signed this fara, i believe everything was absolutely credible,id everythig was absolutely accurate. you cannot ask me to do that. the fact that he did not do that, the prosecutors turned the screws on him again, accordingng to sources, and according to the they said, no, since you are not going to do what we want you to do, you are now a coconspiratore in the case. i think this is really significant because it plays into what has been happening from the very beginning with robert mueller's team. >> sean: think of what judge ellis said at the beginning of the first trial of paul manafort. he said, we know this is -- you don't care about his taxes from years gone by. we know what this is about. you want to put the screws to manafort so he will either sing or compose. compose being lie, say what you want him to say. so you can get donald trump. with that said, he started the case. >> that's it. one very important point about this, sean, that a lot of people
10:10 pm
don't understand, normally faras are not prosecuted, you are right. more than that, when they receive -- example -- an issue from a fara office to file a fara, it's very simple, very easy to fill out. according sources that i've spoken to, flynn's fara was so extraordinarily complicated, it was almost as if they had crafted the fara to try to corner him into, say, making a statement that wouldn't be correct. so that is something that they are looking into as well. the judge has not decided yet whether or not to allow the government to call him a coconspirator, so this still has not been decided. it's expected to be decided soon. >> sean: sara carter, investigative reporter, great work tonight. we are hoping that general flynn gets justice. something really wrong with a process where you are offering someone a thing of value -- their freedom -- if you just say what we want, even though what we want is not true. we will have more coming up later in the program. also exclusive new details from
10:11 pm
fox news contributor, former congressman jason chaffetz tonight on the status of the inspector general's report. his sources telling him that chaffetz has learned that the report's filing has in fact been delayed as the doj is sorting out declassification concerns on top of what we have already told you about people now stepping up and decidingat they want to testify and of course interviewing christopher steele. my message to the doj is very simple: we deserve to see the full report. after all, mueller's findings, they were released with extremely limited reductions. we are expecting the same treatment for the horowitz report because the american people deserve the full truth, equal justice must be served. the sanctity of our republic is at stake. this abuse of power, it can't happen again. for months, this program, we have been squarely focused on our investigation into the investigators and we have been right from the beginning. of course, the destroy rage trump media has been wrong, pushing conspiracy theories and
10:12 pm
lies. we have high ranking government bureaucrats, accountability in this case is critically important. constitutional liberties are in jeopardy.y civil liberties are in jeopardy. equal justice under the law.w. now apparently, not to the fools who are, well, supposed to be conducting oversight on capitol hill. there he is, democratic house judiciary committee chair jerry nadler. he's now turned his committeeoc into an anti-trump circus, the main attraction, nothingra more than constant, never ending conspiracy and anti-trump propaganda. as we speak, nadler is relitigating now for the fifth time the four previous investigations that concluded no collusion. a new boat load of subpoenas are being sent out. in fact, democrats, they are set to issue 12 more subpoenas as part of their never ending fishing expedition. michael flynn, john kelly, corey lewandowski, rob porter, so many more who have already testified, called once again to cooperate with yet a fifth investigation.
10:13 pm
private americans, their legal fees, they are spiraling out of control, all because of an outright smear campaign from the democrats. they never accepted the election loss in 2016. they are not accepting now five separate conclusions, no collusion. that is government harassment. that is government abuse of power, plain and simple.t i would urge these people, you've already testified, you can't add to what you testified to before, you are only walking into a perjury trap. maybe the fifth amendment should be considered. keep in mind, the house judiciary committee is supposed to perform oversight of the department of justice. so where is their investigation into the fisa abuse? what about their investigation into political bias in the mueller probe? is there an investigation into a list of government spying, usins the powerful tools of intelligence against the american people, especially at the height of an election favoring one candidate over another? did they even care if high-ranking bureaucrats broke the law, trampled on the rights of americans, and of course,
10:14 pm
does the whole issue of i surveillance, unmasking, leaking raw intelligence? seems the only thing they care about is taking down a duly elected president. and by the way, all the while calling him a tyrant. how it brings us now to jeffrey epstein. the left is now shamefully trying to use this guy, a convicted pedophile, to smear president trump with reckless innuendos, suggestions, why? because the president once knew epstein. by the way, epstein lived close to mar-a-lago. went to mar-a-lago in palm beach. let's be clear, the president's association with epstein, it ended many, many years ago. watch this. >> well, i knew him like everybody in palm beach knew him. people in palm beach knew him. he was a fixture in palm beach. i had a falling out with him a long time ago. i don't think i've spoken to him for 15 years. i was not a fan. t i was not -- yeah, a long time ago. i would say maybe 15 years. i was not a fan of his. that i can tell you.
10:15 pm
i was not a fan of his. >> sean: the president did not elaborate on why he cut all ties to epstein, author james patterson, who recently wrote a book on the palm beach predator, providing more details during interview with dana perino earlier today. let's take a look. >> president trump said earliere that he had a falling out with epstein about 15 years ago. do you know what that was about? >> well, i know that there were some complaints about epstein at mar-a-lago and also i spoke to the head of the spa there and she said -- i said, did you ever meet epstein? she said, oh, yes. he would come in, he was inappropriate with younger women. she went to mr. trump and trump threw him out of the club.t >> sean: by the way, did the media mention that trump banned him years ago from mar-a-lago? i guess he would not have banned him if the guy had something against him. epstein must be held accountable for what are sick, perverse, very scary charges.
10:16 pm
sadly, per usual, the left is not interested in justice. they're using the case has another effort to bludgeon the president. on the left, politics comes before all else. the sad thing is, they never brought it up in 2016 because the guy that really was close to epstein was bill clinton. they wanted hillary to win. joining us now, author of the upcoming book "power grab: the liberal scheme to undermine trump, the g.o.p., and our republic," former congressman jason chaffetz. author of the number one best seller, "the russia hoax," fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. i want to start with sara's report and catherine's report, in particular, gregg, i want to get to this issue.e. we both know sidney powell. sidney powell is extremely smart, well-respected, and wrote the defensive case on mueller's pit bull andrew weissmann. here's the point. if she, in this filing, is claiming that they were
10:17 pm
asking general flynn to lie, back in the same situation where prosecutors can offer something of great value -- freedom -- if you just say what we want and why. in the paul manafort case. >> it's the equivalent of testi-lying. when a prosecutor does that, it we want you to lie, we don't care about theto truth. is subborning perjury. if you when i did that, would be charged. prosecutors think they can do it every day of the week. sidney powell is going to presented the judge what happened to michael flynn. in particular, he is charged with lying, and yet here is what the fbi report says. strzok and the interviewer both had the impression that flynn was not lying. he did not give any indication of deception.n. >> sean: how ironic. >> if the only two people who interviewed flynn said he was not lying in theirir judgment, then why did muellerer charge flynn and force him to plea under pressure to lie?
10:18 pm
it's an injustice, and i think the judge needs to know it. >> sean: let me ask congressman jason chaffetz, you have your sources tonight -- l this is interesting to the attorney general said weou could expect the ig report in mid-may. okay. here we are at this day. now the question is, we are learning from catherine herridge a couple of things. people that were not willing to talk in the beginning, they are now coming forward last minute. we know christopher steele talked to the ig's team for 15 hours, but steele could not contradict his sworn testimony under the threat of perjury inin great britain because if he did he'd probably be charged in great britain for perjury and he said he had no idea if any of it was true. but it was still the basis of the application for four fisa warrants. so where are we with this? >> what we are really learning is that this goes beyond the department of justice, where horowitz has jurisdiction within the department of justice. what you saw the president do is to release information, at that was a cue that allowed horowitz
10:19 pm
then to go outside the department of justice. he had to get cooperation and pressure from the attorney general to the intelligence agencies. so then there got to be some pressure where people started to say, oh, my gosh, they've actually interviewed some people, i better go back and supplement my testimony, and that is causing this delay. then the next fight, sean, wills be other classification. that is when -- you go to, i got an article about this. i got to tell you, that is going to be a big battle royale. >> sean: that will also be up to the attorney general, i would imagine, and i thought he was very liberal in terms -- i think it was all but one full sentence and seven partial sentences that he could not release because of grand jury laws. i guess the thing we have to ask here, to me, it is a slam-dunk. i will ask both of you the same question. in other words, we know that there were numerous occasions the doj, the fbi, comey, evenha andrew weissmann, were all warned that the dossier was f
10:20 pm
dirty, it was unverified, steele hated trump, henry paid for it. but in each one of the applications, they said it was verified. so to me, that is premeditated fraud on a fisa court, abusing and taking away the civil rights of not only carter page, but the entire trump campaign. i think it is a slam-dunk from my perspective, gregg. >> i always said it was. one of the things they will try to get from christopher steele, or did get from christopher steele, is the information laundering scheme that took place to hide from the court and everybody else that this was paid political propaganda. it worked like this. the fbi did not want anybody toe know what they were doing, so they had christopher steele and glenn simpson feed information to bruce ohr at the doj, who would then be debriefed by joe bianca, the fbi agent, who would then feed the information to peter strzok, who
10:21 pm
fed it to andrew mccabe. so this elaborate scheme was to hide the fact that it was all being paid for, political propaganda, by the clinton campaign and the dnc. >> sean: thank you, both. when we come back, the president's lawyer, rudy giuliani, is here to respond to the breaking news about christopher steele's testimony. also later, democratic party civil war has broken out.ra nancy pelosi and the real speaker, alexandria ocasio-cortez heating up. dan bongino, a special "hannity" mini monologue. straight ahead. ♪ (photographers) candace! charlie!

here to react, president trump's attorney, rudy giuliani is here. mr. mayor, all this news, he gave 15 hours of testimony, and finally others decided last minute that they want to talk to horowitz.. then we learn about general flynn. you are a prosecutor. i don't like this practice. you get a get out of jail free card if you just say what you we want you to say. >> that's a weissmann special that mueller tolerated. mueller should never have been appointed, independent counsel, serious counsel, asleep counsel. he did the same thing in the "whitey" bulger case. a federal judge named nancy burton, a classmate of the clintons, said that his handling of that whole thing was ari serious problem for the fbi. it was chilling in the way that he covered up for a couple of fbi rats who actually did the murders, and people spent 40
10:28 pm
years in prison for murders they did not commit. other people committed them and the fbi knew all along. i'm kind of not making this up. the u.s. attorney of connecticut knows this case better than me. he uncovered it. mueller is the guy who hasas tolerated this kind of incompetent, unethical, over-the-top behavior in defense of the institution. i don't know what his makeup is but i did not really focus on all this until i got involved in this case. i was shocked. i was shocked at the way they handled this case. totally out of control. >> sean: mr. mayor, you can't offer a get out of jail free card and feed people want you want them to say. >> you can't put a man like manafort in solitary confinement for seven months and bring him in 13 times like weissmann did, tell them what to say, when he tells you it's notw true, send him back to solitary confinement and bring him out of work or more days unless they are trying to suborned perjury or you don't care if they are suborning perjury. you can't do what he did to

the government has to show a motive for something that should've been in the census for well over 150 years. >> sean: matt, let's look at this through the political prisp for just a second. the democrats, they are not even talking about abortion. i am shocked that they wouldre talk about, oh, during birth abortion or deliver the baby, make the baby comfortable, and then, oh, the mother williv decide. then you have the issue of 70% individual tax rates, marginal tax rates, 90% corporate rates, they are pushing that, the new green deal, everything is free, whether you want toe work or not, no combustion engine, oil, gas, no cows, no planes. then you add immigration. it is immoral to build walls, let's tear down walls, and free health care even if you are here illegally. how are those positions going to match up against donald trump in 2020? >> the sad thing is, sean, the numbers show that democrats across the country are embracing this idea of socialism and the

radical policies you just enumerated. i think america, there is a fight for the heart and soul of america, and it's going to takea place in election day november 2020. the real key is, we've elected democrat presidents before who ran basically as center left moderates. what we have with these democrats who are running for president is pure, unadulterated socialism. some grab the title, some demure from it. they all have the same policies. on this question of the census, i agree with congressman king. most of the history of america had a question like this on the census. our founders said that a question like this made sense. it's all part of the socialist democrats' attempt to weaken the concept of citizenry, to weaken the concept of being a citizen and the rights that come to you with that privilege, and changing the whole definition of what it means to be an american. >> sean: by the way, you may not know this, but congressmanan

democratic party, as speaker ins name only nancy pelosi continues to lose control of her caucus and she's losing it to freshman congresswoman, that it would be, alexandria ocasio-cortez and the new extreme left. the real speaker showing no signs of backing down because ocasio-cortez is now using pelosi's own words against her. rehashing pelosi's previous attacks, like when she said a glass of water could have won in her district and tweeting yesterday, "those aren't quotes from me, they are from the speaker. having respect for ourselves does not mean we lack respect her." it doesn't stop there because the far left group aligned with the congresswoman is now targeting, yes, targeting, democratic incumbents who have defied to the parties extreme freshman wing.ed see what is going on? ocasio-cortez literally keeping an enemies list, apparently of targets inside her on district. inside her own party, rather. this is an all out democratic circular firing squad. the new radical left setting the agenda, everything from higher

taxes, open borders, and, yes, the economy-killing so-called climate change alarmism, you know, no more oil, gas, combustion engine, everything is free. that is where ocasio-cortez is teaming up with comrade bernie sanders on the climate change mobilization plan. this is an apparent effort now to save face because the new green deal rollout was a disaster. bernie is actually comparing the whole thing to world war ii. telling reporters in a conference call, "i am reminded today in terms of the crisis that we face in climate change about where the united states was in 1941 when it was attacked at pearl harbor." the best part about all this, these wounds are going to get deeper and deeper and the fight louder and louder, because everg time pelosi tries to get her power back and gavel back, the new extreme democrats, they get louder and louder and move b further and further to the left. they will be interesting to a watch. let it go. here with reaction, former
