10:00 pm
8:00 p.m. the show that is the sincere and sworn enemy of lien, pomposity, smugness, and groupthink. "hannity" is next, these are live pictures, stay tuned for live updates on tropical -- ♪ >> sean: welcome to the special edition of "hannity," the russia boomerang. and justst moments, we have a studio audience full of experts who are going to break down the swinging pendulum of justice. now, 42-plus years, the democrats, the deep state, the media mob, all working together. what, first to stop one person becomingbe president. then take down a duly-elected president of the united states with conspiracy theories and a russian hoax. tonight, the president remains unscathed.he and those who abused their power, those involved in corruption, will now be held accountable. this does include special counsel robert mueller. we expect he will appear on capitol hill for a public
10:01 pm
hearing, as the attorney general barr pointed out, democrats are hoping to turn the testimony into a spectacle. for nadler, for thee cowardly schiff, one more excuse to try and smear trump. but for republicans, this hearing is a goldenr opportunity to ask the questions that need to be asked to robert mueller. to hold him accountable. we, you, we, the american people deserve answers to all the pressing questions that our government has totally ignored, and the media mob has ignored. mueller must answer, why did he hire a team full of democratic donors, not one republican available? why would ever he hire, in this case, hillary clinton's former attorney? why did he hire this guy, andrew weissmann? a guy who has withheld exculpatory in evidence the past, a clinton-loving, partisan hack, he was there the night of clinton's victory party that never happened. a record full of prosecutorial misconduct. why did mueller have time
10:02 pm
investigate, let's see, taxi medallions, loanra applications, fara, tax fraud, but he didn't look at the dirty dossier, lying to a fisa court, the premeditated fraud committed on a court to spy on a presidential campaign?pa why was the probe never in to hillary clinton's bought and paid for russian lies? what about christopher steele? with his russian lies. what about glenn simpson, fusion gps, the clinton campaign coordination with the government of ukraine that we have pointed out. keep in mind, people like michael cohen, paul manafort, lieutenant general michael flynn, george papadopoulos, all charged with crimes totally unrelated to collusion or conspiracy with russia to impact theam 2016 campaign. yet, in an investigation supposedly about collusion and corruption, well, no onecl connected to clinton, the dnc, their phony russian-sourced oppo
10:03 pm
research, how did you ignore all of that, mr. mueller? does robert mueller hate president trump? did he hire people that hate president trump for a reason, then-candidate trump. is this why he pursued an investigation into obstruction, even after there was no underlying crime of conspiracy or collusion? and why has mueller given contradictory statements on the topic of obstruction? is he being pressured by andrew weissmann? did he forget? did he not remember what he said??ei did he even write that 9 1/2 minute rambling press conference? at the end of the day, is rob mueller really proud of his 22-month witch hunt, that really did nothing than give fuel to what are rampant conspiracy theories, lies, propaganda, misinformation? a whole channel, conspiracy channel, msdnc, or fake news cnn. no president in this country should ever have to face this kind of flawed, partisan, phony,
10:04 pm
conspiracy-oriented investigation ever again. it shouldn't't happen. thankfully, tonight, the boomerang of justice is in full swing. t we have separate investigations into fisa abuse, deep state misconduct, corruption and lies, and the origins of the russian probe well under way. according to reports, the horowitz investigation into fisa abuse is nearly done. that was until the 11th hour, christopher steele finally agreed to be interviewed. the former mi6 agent, authorho f hillary's dirty dossier, grilled for nearly 16 hours over the course of two days in great britain. there's some speculation that g steele was worried that high-ranking u.s. officials were ready to throw him under the bus. and steele probably wanted to set the record straight about how his dirty russian dossier,d that clinton paid for, was created and utilized in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election. this is likely very bad news for people, names you know well. jim comey, andrew mccabe,
10:05 pm
strzok, paige, and baker, and so many others, people using steele's unverified, and frankly unverifiable, russian garbage to then spy on an opposition party candidate, donald trump, his campaign. then it became the trump transition and even the trump presidency. the whole fisa warrant that was anything but verified and accurate, we now know everybody was warned. they were told ahead of time, oh, christopher steele hates trump? hillary paid for it, none of it is verified. but then they used it in a premeditated way to commit a massive fraud on a fisa court, not once, but three subsequent renewal applications were filed, as well. we have big problems in the deep state. but they are now being exposed. here in studio with reaction, the author of "the russia hoax," number one "new york times" best seller, gregg jarrett. former trump campaign associate, carteretor page. by the way, those fisa warrants
10:06 pm
were right on him. you see that the great there? that's going to be a number one best seller, and it's called "radicals, resistance, and revenge," the host of the number one show here on saturday night on the fox news channel, judge jeanine pirro. also, fox news correspondent at large, geraldo rivera, fox news contributor tammy bruce, criminal defense attorney david chon, sirius xm radio host kerry picket, and last but not least, american conservative union matt schlapp, he is the chair appeared good to see you all. you are the person i'm starting with. you were the one they used when they got, when they used the dirty dossier, as what we are now told, according to the grassley-graham memo, the bulk of the fisa application, it was to spy on you, carter page, to have a backdoor into all things the trump campaign. correct? >> i think the latter is what they were interested in.nk no reason to spy on me. but they really just wanted an
10:07 pm
excuse to get to -- >> sean: you worked with us for years. >> absolutely. >> sean: and when you would go abroad, and as a good american, you would offer any information you had, correct? >> absolutely. >> sean: did you work for the cia? were you an intelligence officer for the united states? >> i was, i have been a confidential human source. >> sean: were you ever paid? >> no. >> sean: you worked as a patriot that loved his country.>> when anybody in the intelligence community wanted information after you were abroad, you would sit with them for hours, is that fair to say? >> well, sometimes it would be hours. we'd go out to lunch and speak -- >> sean: you told them everything you knew? >> absolutely. >> sean: because you love your country. >> absolutely. >> sean: what do you think of what they did to you? >> well, i'm just surprised that they don't tell the full truth. i mean, that's, you mentioned the mueller dossiers, which was just the initial step. that information, what theyat
10:08 pm
wrote about me, is totally false in every possible way. so one example is -- >> sean: were you ever called before congress? >> for 20 hours or so, yeah. >> sean: how many hours did you spend before mueller's team? >> a full day.ow >> sean: were you ever called back? >> nope. >> sean: were you ever charged? >> absolutely not. >> sean: intersting, they had a full year of listening to every conversation you had, every text message, every e-mail. >> plus ten hours with the fbi in march 2017, as well. h >> sean: gregg jarrett writes the number one "new york times" best seller, jeanine pirro, also, "the russian hoax: thew illicit scheme to clear hillary clinton" -- and what donald trump? >> frame donald trump. >> sean: what part of that is untrue, the title of your book? >> all of it is true. >> sean: it is what we know has happened. >> every bit of information that has come out in the year since my book was published has only corroborated all of the information. i wouldn't change a single word of it.
10:09 pm
and what they did to carter was unconscionable. the fbi set up an information laundering scheme to hide that this was all coming from, it was paid political propaganda from the hillary clinton campaign and the dnc. >> sean: backtrack a second, though, before you get to that, the same people investigated hillary, right? >> oh, yeah. >> sean: did they write an exoneration of her before they investigated her? >> oh, absolutely. >> sean: did hillary clintonel violate 18usa793, that i -- >> she did. the espionage act, two different provisions, as well as obstruction of justice and theft of government documents. >> sean: there was an underlying crime when she had top secret classified special access information on that mom and pop server in a bathroom closet. >> absolutely. >> sean: and there was, that's the underlying crime, and when she had subpoenaed e-mails, deleted them.bp anyone here ever hear ofan
10:10 pm
bleachbit before hillary? >> destruction of evidence, it's classic. >> sean: that's destroying, the aides beating up the hammers, using the hammers to beat it upt >> so many of those people received immunity in exchange for nothing. nobody received immunity that was associated with trump. ♪ >> hi, everyone, this is a fox news alert. i'm an appointment in new york there tropical storm barry is bringing heavy rain and wind to the gulf coast pair the storm is expected to turn into the first hurricane of the 2019 season when i make landfall today. residents who have been bracing for this while thousands are warned to evacuate their homes. more funding is expected, that is already on top of the nearly 9 inches of rain's part of the state got earlier this week. fox news senior correspondent rick leventhal is live on the ground in new orleans. rick, what is it looking like? >> the city is pretty dry tonight, looking pretty good. bourbon street, very, very quiet
10:11 pm
on a friday night, unusual for the french quarter to be this calm. but honestly, a lot of bars closed early, including the redfish grill, sandbagged just in case the water rose in downtown new orleans, which it did last wednesday when they got 8 inches of rain in just a few hours, the forecast was for 5 oa short amount of time here tonight, but so far at least, that hasn't happened. here is more about what this region is anticipating. >> we have a lot of rain running over the center, expected -- >> tropical storm barry is slowly turning its way toward the louisiana gulf coast, organizing and strengthening to a possible category 1 hurricane when it makes landfall, but the biggest threat is and wind, it's rain. the storm expected to dump ten to 20 inches of rain on an already saturated region, possibly up to two feet or more in some area between friday night and sunday. with metaphor mandatory evacuas
10:12 pm
in effect. it's a region that has seen its share of major storms, and already flooded earlier this week. more than 200 floodgates have been closed along the mississippi river, which is at flood stage and rising closer to the 20-foot top of most levees. >> for the first time in history, all floodgates within the hurricane system in the new orleans area are sealed off with those floodgates be enclosed. >> some 3,000 national guard troops have been prepositioned along with utility trucks and emergency supplies. a louisiana governor john bel edwards morning residents to have a game plan. >> we really have to be extremely prepared for a very major rain event across much of louisiana. >> officials in new orleans are advising folks in the path of the storm to stay dry and stay put. >> shelters have commodities and supplies to last doing upward of
10:13 pm
72 hours. >> time is short. if you have preparations you need to complete, now is the time. you do not have much more time at all before the impact of barry will be here. >> anna, a really important update from the national weather service a short time ago, the mississippi river has now crested at just 17.1 feet, far below the 19 feet they were concerned it would breach, which would be just a foot below the top of many of the levees. it has crushed it already, they say it is already receding, so the danger from the mississippi and flooding appears to be over, but the storm is still expected to be a category 1 when it hits near morgan city sometime saturday morning, and it is going to still bring a lot of rain with it, and the ground is already saturated across the state and neighboring state. so the danger from flooding, flash flooding, and storm surge flooding, is not over, but it appears the danger flooding from the mississippi, at least out of the crescent city here, is over.
10:14 pm
>> what about additional rainfall, though? >> we could get dumped on here overnight. we could get a lot of rain here tomorrow and through sunday, so that threat still exists from the storm system. again, this area got a lot of rain earlier this week, and the surrounding region has been soaked, so yeah, they could get a tremendous amount of rain beyond new orleans, the rainfall total in this area, may be lower because of the storm seems to have gone slightly to the left. >> and those levees are 20 feet tall, is that correct? >> yeah, the levee system as high as 25 feet where we were yesterday along the ninth ward. so the levees are high enough to withstand up to 20 feet, and the river crested at 17, not already receding. they say they will be another crest on monday, but will likely not be anywhere as high as it was earlier today. they feel pretty good about the levee system and the floodgates holding up. >> yeah, and you mentioned just
10:15 pm
how quiet things are behind you. bourbon street is quiet, and are residents -- are they heeding all of the wordings? >> we had heard concerns from some of the parish officials, including down in blackman's parish that they were ignoring the mandatory evacuation orders. on the south side of the floodgate wall that was being closed, we were told if you don't get out now, you can't leave until we reopen these gates, and they didn't leave because they wanted to stay hom home. so that was apparently repeated in a number of other areas. we don't know the turtle from grand isle, for example, but the main highway in and out of grana friday afternoon, the folks who were there were having a real tough time getting out at that point, so we can only hope that they stock up on food and water and supplies in anticipation of the storm, because we have seen this over and over again, a lot of people didn't want to stay home, and they don't want to leave their stuff behind because
10:16 pm
they are worried about it, and in many cases don't believe the forecast. sometimes they are right, and sometimes, unfortunately, they are wrong. >> sometimes the forecasters do get it right, though, and end up on the roofs looking for help from first responders, and then it puts our first responders in jeopardy, too, doesn't it? >> it does, because they have to go in and make a high water rescue after they've already warned people to get out and they don't leave, than it does put those first responders at risk. that is one of the reasons why they ask people to evacuate, in some places, if the storm is severe enough, we won't be able to come get you out until things get better. that is not really the case with this particular storm, anna, because even if it comes in as a category 1, we have seen far worse than that, and first responders have seen far worse than that. again, the threat you're not from wind, it's from the rain, and there are still major concerns about flooding from the rainfall, from swollen rivers, and from storm surge. >> yeah, well, residents there,
10:17 pm
they realize, in 2016, there was a big flood that we had, don't want to be caught in that situation again. to talk a little bit about why new orleans is particularly susceptible to flooding and being below sea level. >> i can tell you it is a very humid here. >> yeah. [laughs] >> it's a very low lying city, and when they first started building it, a lot of people were taking the high ground, but than others, there wasn't any land left on high ground, so they built on low ground. that is one of the reasons they built walls all around new orleans, because they were worried about the water coming in. they've been pretty lucky, the levees have held up, but the big one is coming. >> rick, thank you so much. we will check back in you with you later on this evening. we will take you back to "hannity" for all of your headlines, -- ♪[upbeat music]

♪ >> hello, my from the headquarters. mueller hearings have been pop postponed until july 24th. that is far more examining of the former special counsel. he is slated for back-to-back hearings with the judiciary and intelligence committee, and testimony has been expanded to three hours, giving lawmakers an opportunity to ask questions. he was originally slated to testify next week on july 17th. and a convicted sex offender and billionaire jeffrey epstein is accused of witness tampering, federal prosecutors alleged that epstein wired some $360,000 $3o possible witnesses and a former case. a recent court filing as part of
10:23 pm
an effort to have dale denied. epstein awaits it trial for sex trafficking charges in new york. prosecutors say epstein made the payments to two people shortly after an investigation was published in the "miami herald" in november of last year. the trump administration will allow a pediatrician to conduct an independent investigation of conditions for migrant children at u.s. border facilities. dr. paul wise of stanford university was critical of conditions for children after touring the center last summer. we have more for you coming up later this evening. and now back to your program. ♪ >> sean: all right, as we continue, the russia probe boomerang, special edition of "hannity." democrats kin dof giddy about mueller testifying to congress, totally blind to the possibility i actually suspect could really happen, that this is all going to backfire on them. take a look at how high their hopes are. >> it's important that he answer a lot of specific questions. he did a two-year investigation,
10:24 pm
he found that the russians attacked our election. he found that there was plenty of, i think 170 contacts between the russians and the people in the trump campaign. >> he did not make a traditional prosecutorial judgment, instead, he referred it to congress, and it is perfectly appropriate for congress to bring him in. >> sean: joining us, former independent counsel, fox news contributor, ken starr. you had to testify under the independent counsel statute. mueller really doesn't have to. but here's the interesting why do i think that republicans are going to want to know things like, oh, how did you have time for taxi medallions, fara violations, loan t applications, taxes, but didn't have time for hillary's russian, dirty dossier, that she bought and paid for, a lie that was the foundation to spy on the guy in the audience, carter page, and the entire trump campaign, trump transition, and trump presidency.. how did he miss that little, important item? >> well, you have laid out a lot of questions, and those are very
10:25 pm
legitimate questions.op this is going to be a great opportunity. the republicans are going to be on the spot, because they are being given, you put it well, a golden opportunity to get some questions answered that we all have. we haven't talked much this evening, thus far, very briefly about the report itself. i think the republicans will do well to drill into the report and to say such things as the transition period proved, proved that there were no connections between vladimir putin and the kremlin, and the trump organization and the trump campaign. why couldn't you say that much more directly? with respect to the obstruction, the obstructive acts. i think one question thate i would want to ask if i were in congress is, your report cries out with the fact that the president felt the entire investigation was totally unfair and uncalled for. doesn't that put in context the fact that he had issues with bob mueller's continuing service, with what rod rosenstein could do, and so
10:26 pm
forth. and i think pressing bob mueller with respect to why you did not give the president of the united states any benefit of the doubt at all. the final question i would say, you really wrote this for congress, and you had no authority to do that. you are no authority to do that. you were to write a confidential report to the attorney general of the united states explaining your prosecution decisions and your declination decision. your whole second part goes way beyond anything that you were authorized to do. mr. mueller, some might call that an abuse of power. >> sean: and the horrific 9 1/2 minute press conference, where he contradicted what he had already told many people, which is, no, it wasn't part of his thinking, justice department policy, doj policy as it relate to the constitutionality of whether you can indict or not indict a sitting president. so he already answered that twice. both ways. >> right, yeah.
10:27 pm
and, sean, note that in that report, especially the second part of his report, bob, and i have great respect for bob mueller, but i don't respect this report. here is something that i thought was just beyond the pale, he turned himself and his office into a constitutional law office. he had no authority to do that. there's an office of legal counsel that has been in place for decades. they are the experts.. bob mueller and his prosecutors are not. here he gives this very authoritative-sounding opinion with respect to the powers of the presidency. i think he got a lot have it wrong. i think he got a lot of the analysis wrong on obstruction of justice. but also, just the presentation of the facts, just raises the question, again, was this a fair presentation and a balanced presentation of the facts? at this stage, i say no. >> sean: ken starr, thank you.
10:28 pm
let's talk to ourny lawyers. how many lawyers go we have? four, that's a lot. you're a lawyer, start with you, judge, we love dearly. you know, that 9 1/2 minutes that was a disaster for mueller. go ahead. >> it was a disaster. first of all, that report, as ken starr just said is a report that was supposed to go to the attorney general. the attorney general can then decide what, if anything, he wants to do with it. he didn't to have disclose it, release it -- >> sean: he said no collusion in part one. >> he said no collusion in part one. and then, as it related to obstruction, he says i can't really acquit the defendant, the president.ay yeah, of obstruction. all right, he was saying i can't say yes or no. under the guidelines in the department of justice, thehe attorney general and deputy attorney general then come in and make the decision. >> sean: and office of legal counsel -- >> right, leaving the crumbs for congress and suggesting that
10:29 pm
congress should have oversight and hold hearings, he played himself, he took off his mask as an objective special counsel, and showed himself to be a political >> sean: when i watched the 9 1/2 minutes, gregg jarrett, i don't even think he wrote it. >> no, i don't think he did. he didn't write the report, either, it was written byt committee, two committee, james quarrels' side, the reasonable quarrelsc' side, the reasonable side, which felt as if no collusion and no obstruction of justice. the other side was andrew weissmann's side. >> sean: we learned today did the hiring for mueller. >> absolutely. crime iftely. you just walk down the street. >> sean: is weissmann the one that withheld in the book, if i recall correctly, known to withhold exculpatory evidence? >> and threaten witnesses, called on the carpet, reversed, rebuked by higher courts. this is a guy who should never be a lawyer or a prosecutor. but bob mueller's news
10:30 pm
conference for nine minutes, he contradicted himself. he said if he could clear the president, he would. but at the same time, in a different sentence, he said he i couldn't clear the president because of the olc opinion. so which is it, bob? the most important question for mueller in front of congress is the following. isn't it true, mr. mueller, you sat in the oval office talking to the president the day before you became special counsel/ >> sean: asking for a job. >> and the president told you his reasons for firing james comey, which makes you the witness in your own case, and demands your recusal. why didn't you? >> sean: david. >> i think that the majorus problem, the question, series of questions i would want to ask mr. mueller starts and stops with the picking of his team.o all of the issues you raised in the beginning, relate to that. mueller knew exactly what he was doing. it's not just that he picked w only partisan democrats, financial supporters of hillary clinton,
10:31 pm
hillary clinton's lawyer. he picked andrew weissmann. he knew who andrew weissmann rewas. not only was the only corrupt prosecutor singled out by the o chief judge in the eastern district of new york for unethical withholding of exculpatory evidence. >> sean: you have seen this. >> i have the case against him now. b he brought the case, when the evidence was disclosed 16 defendants were acquitted, based on that evidence. because some good judges in thet eastern district required it to be disclosed. mueller knew it.di he hired him as general counsel, mueller authorized $500,000 in attorney's fees for the corrupt fbi agent that weissmann covered up for. >> sean: i'll send to you meet with jim jordan. i think he needs to have a conversation with you. also sent four maryland executives to jail for a year, overturned by the fifth signature. everyone wants in, we'll come back, more with the studio audience and preview the inspector general's upcoming report. former congressman trey gowdy weighs in, as well, as the

>> hi, everyone, this is a fox news alert. louisiana residents are on high alert as tropical storm barry is battering the gulf coast with heavy rain. forecasters are describing it as an "life threatening situation," as the system has a possibility to turn into the first hurricane of the season, making landfall sometime this morning. louisiana has been under a state of emergency since wednesday. joining me now via phone's republican representative garrett graham, who serves on the louisiana sixth congressional district, which does include baton rouge. congressman graves, how is it looking right now, and i think starting to pick up there? >> we are definitely seeing winds picking up, there's being
10:37 pm
wind gusts all over south louisiana picking up, much higher than you would expect this early on. down in some of our coastal areas, we are already seeing some of our areas underwater in a dated, probably 6.5 hours away from landfall. >> they said this could be history making because the ground is so saturated already, and the rivers have been rising already, as well. >> and a lot of people don't realize this is one of the largest watersheds in the world. we drain from montana to new york to canada come all the way through louisiana, and record water across the nation, so we have been in flood states since january on the mississippi river system. this is the first time in history we have been at flood stage and have all of the water on the mississippi river while we also have a hurricane coming up from the south. record water coming down from
10:38 pm
the north, storm surge wind andm the gulf of mexico. this is the first time we have ever seen this, certainly causes much concern down here. >> yeah, really a triple threat as far as the water goes. just reading, about 10,000 people living in low-lying areas have been told to leave their homes. is this something people are doing? are they heeding these warnings? >> we have had our share of disasters on here, whether it be hurricane katrina, rita, older ones, we certainly saw the impact of the hurricanes in texas, florida, and others in 2017 and 2018. people take this seriously. they learn to hunker down and stay as safe as they can in their homes, or they do go ahead and evacuate. if the people here are pretty seasoned with regard to these storms, and most of them do take the advice of their community
10:39 pm
leadership and evacuate when that is an option for them. >> we do hope so, because then end up putting the lives of first responders in danger when we choose not to heed those warnings. we saw some video there are folks packing up sandbags in an effort to protect their homes and their businesses, their livelihood, so that is not ripped away from them from this flooding. have you noticed a neighbor helping neighbor already? >> oh, it has been incredible. in fact, people coming in from nowhere near the threatened areas, driving down to help folks out, that is one thing that we really comes out when yu have a disaster like this, there really are no strangers. everybody comes in and helps out folks, and it has been fantastic seeing the camaraderie and just the community coming together. in regard to the sandbags, we are looking at rain levels up to as high as 25 inches in peak areas. that is as much rain as many americans see in an entire year's time, and so sandbags are being deployed all over south
10:40 pm
louisiana. we have flood stations, pump stations out around the coastal area and around southern louisiana parishes, in order to help get the water out of these communities and get into the gulf of mexico as quickly as possible. >> we are looking at some water, you know, all over the streets. cars trying to make their way through it. of course, the thing we always say, turn around, don't drown. if you see that high water, that is not what you are supposed to do. but there will be high water vehicles involved in rescue operations in the aftermath of the storm, and also helicopters that, of course, will be deployed. and part of that is because of the resources that have been freed up since president donald trump issued that federal disaster declaration. how much is that helping? >> of the president, with witht hours of the disaster, that
10:41 pm
unleashes a whole load of federal assistance, everything from bringing in ice and water to having the coast guard ready for rescue visions, having fema deployed, having military aspects, a cps of engineers, it really does unleash a lot of preparation that is needed to do the immediate response and recovery activities. most importantly, it provides some of the resources that are designed to prevent disaster or flooding from happening to begin with, because, of course, we all know that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and getting sandbags and other things out to help prevent flooding into these communities, as a result. >> congressmen, have you seen the national guard there in baton rouge? >> we do have national guard in baton rouge, also have been stationed out, deployed in some
10:42 pm
of the coastal parishes, as we were traveling around today. we did see guards, men and women, they were out helping to get these communities protected and working with the parishes to ensure they are prepared for the storm. to speak with comes a point where it is too late to evacuat. when will that point be reached? >> it really depends on which community you are in. some of the communities in south louisiana, the coastal communities right on the water, a few of them have probably already reached that point. as you noted in your videos, you have areas where unless you have a y water vehicle, you are not getting out at this point. as the storm is moving so slowly, once it gets in an area, it is just staying there, dumping rain. anyone in in a low-lying area,n these areas where they have been asked to evacuate, they really need to get out as quickly as possible.

you back to "hannity" give all of your headlines, log onto theater watching the most powerful name in news, fox news. ♪ >> sean: as we continue this special edition of "hannity," sleepy, creepy, crazy uncle joe biden's 2020 run is in nonstop damage control. and it's gotten so bad biden is trying to rewrite history. he literally claimed russian election interference would never happen on his or obama's watch. only it happened on their watch, all of it. take a look. >> well, putin is trying to undo our elections, he is undoing elections in, in europe. look what's happened in hungary, look what's happened in poland. you think that would have happened on my watch, barack's watch? i promise you it wouldn't have and it didn't. >> sean: all election interference happened on obama-biden watch, all of it. here more reaction with the incredible panel.
10:50 pm
matt, you mentioned earlier you were in the whitee house. interesting the fourth of july speech the president gave got a lot of criticism. i saw him praising a military that literally stopped evil h without help in europe.e. beat naziism, fascism, imperial japan, and that military has defended more freedom around the globe than anyed other military. they deserve that honor. it was warned of by devin nunes, in 2014, is he that out of touch? >> when joe biden doesn't have a script in front of him, it really goes haywire. i love it. the more, the most serious lie in this whole question about the ridiculous charge of collusion is this idea that this was some unique thing that only happened in the last presidential election. the russians have been doing this in our elections while joe biden was the vice president, while joe biden was in the senate, he
10:51 pm
never did anything to stop it. obama knew this was going to happen. >> sean: everyone says o'biden. >> i like it. he knew biden was going to be warned. decided to not tell donald truma but try to ensnare donald trump. that is the fundamental, fraudulent, whole basis for all of >> sean: i've always thought, especially with jim comey, describes this meeting, why didn't jim comey say i know you're not from the political n world, mr. president-elect, i'm not your guy. this is, i am separate and apart, just so you know. why didn't they tell the trump campaign, donald trump is a patriot, loves his country, done great philanthropic work. why didn't they just tell donald trump, i think there might be some attempts, russian interference in your campaign and give him a chance to clean it up. if it was happening, turns out it wasn't.
10:52 pm
why didn't they approach it that way? >> you wonder that. for some reason then jim comey, turns around and ends up leaking all of this information to his professor friend, yet he seems to get away with that,on doesn't he? one of the things i'm also sort of wondering about, andrew weissmann. why is it that if the democrats are so interested in getting information about the mueller investigation, why don't they bring him to capitol hill? why is it that all the democrats don't seem so interested about what andrew weissmann has to say? i've been asking them these questions. and they're like, oh, we don't really want to talk about that right now. >> sean: let me get a prediction, i want predictions here. question i am most frequently asked by everybody, when, who, who, when. when are they going to be held accountable? we've been peeling the onion for we've been peeling the onion for we have gotten further than i thought when we started. you have a thought? will people be indicted for abuse of power and corruption, that's the question i want to ask you all.
10:53 pm
quickly. >> i suspect so. but it takes long time. because uncovering lies with all of the coverup involved, takes a very long time. >> sean: are we close? >> no, we're not close. william barr has a lot of work to do, and john durham and the inspector general. >> sean: will it happen? >> i think there will be. >> sean: there will be indictments with these names we talk about every night? >> i hope there are indictments. because the evidence is compelling and overwhelming. >> sean: incontrovertible, tammy?ar >> yes, i think it is someone, it's probably going to be low-hanging fruit. the american people won't accept a lack of indictment. it was about the rule of law and fairness. >> sean: james comey won't be indicted? >> i don't think so. and i think when it comes to the hillary team that you had so many people given immunity, to get indictments you need some one to whistle blow. you need some one to confess, to say yes we did this. >> sean: let me quick get
10:54 pm
everyone in. >> first of all, comey has to be dieted. indicted. all right, the rats are already jumping ship, already pointing the finger at each other. you have durham -- >> sean: prepremeditated fisa fraud. >> they don't play games. >> comey? >> there will be indictments or a plea deal. >> i'm a cynic. people who would never satisfy the american people.n you are right, the evidence is overwhelming and incontrovertible. >> sean: they took away his guy's constitutional rights andg civil liberties, they will get away with it? >> weissmann has been doing it for 30 or 40 years. two people sitting here -- >> sean: maybe it's time for equal justice. >> the issue is not whether they took carter page'sng rights away from him. i agree with you, he should have an incredibly big lawsuit. the issue is whether on its face --
10:55 pm
>> sean: he needs to sue. >> you do need to sue. whether on its face they have lied to congress. they have obstructed evidence. they have obstructed justice. >> sean: carter, last word. >> there's just, it's all come down to lies. there's no truth out there. it's just been lie after lie for fhe last several years. >> sean: you feel like your life iss tainted because people are suspicious of you, and you were spied on for a year? >> i'm more concerned about the damage it's done for ouron country, president trump, his entire administration. >> sean: you going to sue? >> there's a lot coming so very soon, sean. >> sean: all right, more of this special edition of "hannity" on this great panel as we continue.
