9:00 pm
new subaru, like the all new outback. (vo 2) get 0.9% on a new outback during the subaru share the love event. ♪ >> tucker: good evening, and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." here and cable news, we try not to overpromise at the outset of a show, but we got to be clear with you this evening. there is a loter going on. at this very moment, the house of representatives is doing a markup of its impeachment resolution, opening statements held a short time ago. we are monitoring data and will bring you highlights as they happen later in the hour, and the top moments from the doj inspector general testimony to the senate. that is also a head. but first night, thanks to the department of justice ig reportw the one released yesterday, those who are paying attention, fairly obvious for a long time, in fact, from the beginning, we now know the steele dossier played a central role in the
9:01 pm
genesis of the beginning of the russia hoax. the dossier was used to justify extensive spying on an instant american citizen, former naval officer and annapolis graduate carter page. the top two leaders of the fbi were closely involved in their decision to do this. other powerful people, including the director of the cia, knew it was happening and then lied to cover it up later. all of that was confirmed c yesterday by the ig's report. the report was a disaster for the credibility of our bureaucratic class in washington. but it's also a big, big problem for the american news media. they were exposed as liars and know-nothings, as well. we can give a million examples of this,f but we will give justa few, because they have so many. national security correspondent shane harris lectured kim strassel of "the wall street journal," someone frequent on this show, about how little she knew about the story. yeah, she wrote condescend this
9:02 pm
condescendingly, i'm telling you it was not used as the basis for the fisa warrant on carter page. you may wonder, how they could have known that since the fisa warrant was classified. he has never explained. but it doesn't matter. it was false, and now we know it is false. but here is the key, he has not apologized or acknowledged his role in -- a consistent show for the intel agency. in the summer of 2018, smugly tweeted "trump is wrong about carter page and the dossier on the fisa warrant." except it looks like trump was right about carter page on the dossier on the fisa warrant comment ken delaney and sources in the intel committee were completely wrong. cnn newsroom anchor and chief national security correspondent jim shooter actually did admit that the steele dossier might have been used for the fisa
9:03 pm
wanted. but don't be f impressed. they lectured readers that "the fbi would corroborate information in the dossier on its own before using such intel to justify the fisa warrant. in other words, you can believe your government, ladies and gentlemen, and anyone who doubts that is a bad person. of course, that was a lie, too. it didn't happen. in fact, just the opposite happened. we now know thanks to the ig report that the fbi hate information showing the dossier was false. if they didn't confirm the information. they pretended it was a real and they knew it wasn't, and then continued to use it to re-up the fisa warrant. totally dishonestne behavior. they were wrong, at best. did he issue a correction? of course, he didn't, he was too busy tweeting a nancy pelosi quote about how solemn impeachment was. buffoonish as he is, he was merely following the lead of everyone else at cnn, all frantically trying to convince
9:04 pm
you that the dossier was told envelopment to the fisa wind. >> a lot of people focus on the dossier, on fisa, carter page, and they say there wasn't spying on the campaign, at the beginning, this is all about what russia was doing. >> now republicans are trying to claim that the dossier to getting the fisa, the surveillance warrant, for carter page. but thesu democrat's memo cleary shows it wasn't the key, there was more into the information that they have. >> given the earlier version of the redacted fisa authorization, to be enough information to indicate the dossier was not used as the primary source. >> tucker: ouch. that hasn't aged well, has it? everything you just saw turned out to be false if not outright lying. t there is no debate about it, and we know now it was wrong. has cnn retracted it, or apologized? that's a rhetorical question!
9:05 pm
apologies require introspection, and decency, integrity, even. at cnn, they are by contrast, doubling down. watch don lemon explained that by definition, everything cnn reported was true. >> so how is the white house on the republican party dealing with the articles of impeachme impeachment, and an inspector general report that debunked theirl conspiracy theories? gas lighting. >> tucker: by the way, there was no spying, of course. the fbi obtained proper warrants, read the report. facts first. none of that is true. the report found that the launch of the russian investigation was legally sound, unbiased, and that no spying occurred. that is the god's honest truth. read the report if you don't believe me. >> tucker: [laughs] read the report, says don lemon warily. just read it. facts first, says don lemon. that is his motto, wise and old
9:06 pm
news man that he is. facts, facts, and still more facts. he can't get enough facts. when it comes to facts about he is like a fat kid at the concession stand. what he the biggest helping of fact he can get. in his world, facts are delicious, in your opinion has . governor cuomo's brother agrees with that pick onuo like you, he went to yale university in connecticut, purely by pluck and cleverness and hard work. so he is smart enough to know lying when he sees it, and nonpartisan enough to report it without fear or favor. watchh. >> trump is a victim. all right, that is what was promised from this ig's report. 476 pages. no trump as victim. trump even says that is what this says. itit doesn't. he is lying to you about the report. please, do yourselves a favor, do the homework. he is lying to you. >> tucker: yeah, do the homework, demands chris cuomo.
9:07 pm
do the homework! read the ig report! you have to wonder -- is chris cuomo really living up to his ownon standards? has chris cuomo actually read the ig report? come on, now, be honest. or is it possible that chris cuomo's assistant promised to read the ig report, give him a summary, then got stuck in a super long holiday season line at starbucks and forgot to do it? them and may become any last minute panic -- which is understandable, and we are not judging here, but under the circumstances, may be told if you white lies to chris cuomo about what the report actually says. we're not sure that is what will happen, but it is certainly one possible explanation. we do know this. unless he is a pathological liar, chris cuomo didn't actually read the ig report. he couldn't have. otherwise he would not be able to sit in the television studioe stare into the camera, and pretend that the justice department's inspector general
9:08 pm
just confirmed what cnn has been telling you for three years. he couldn't have said that because it is absolutely not what happened yesterday, not even close. charlie hurt's opinion editor at th"the washington times," author of the book "still winning: why america went all in on donald trump and why we must do it again," and critically to the thanks for coming on. you will unlike a lot of people commenting on the news have kind of been this ordinary reporter. and you know the business, you know the people in the business. you look around at the landscape now and assess what you just saw and tell me, where are we in this media world? >> you know this media has a left tilt, and people try to pursue the truth, and maybe they are little biases that sneak in here and there. by and large people, something
9:09 pm
comes out that's truthful. this is something entirely different and i would say that this steele dossier coverage is the darkest moment in american journalism history. it is devastating. they have gone from being useful to even willing idiots, and it's trying to prop up a massive ungovernable system that is the government. the reason those people were so sure they knew that they still dossier wasn't the basis, they are being told by people. they are being told by people that were there sources, other government sources and those are more important to them then challenging any of them. they would never challenge them. my goodness. when i got into this business,
9:10 pm
if you want to an editor and hadn't challenged your sources on every story, you're going to get your butt kicked. it's all different now. the proximity of power -- the more powerful the people are the more reverence they have for them. they'll do anything they can to prop them u up and destroy anyby that gets in their path. that undermines or threatens that power they have reached some proximity to and it's terrifying. >> tucker: that's clearly true. i have perspectives and i'm very clear about what my opinions are. i would like to think him i speak with sincerity. if we screwed up then we admit it. you are always searching for the truth. >> you're not going to say something is blue when it's clearly red. these people -- you will never get an apology for the mistakes because they don't care. the reason it's so terrifying is
9:11 pm
a free republican is dependent upon an informed electorate. in this environment you cannot have an informed electorate. democracy will fail. you have a media like this, it's 100% the fault of these people in the media, particularly the politicalpe m media. it's a terrifying future. >> tucker: charlie hurt, thank you for that perspective. doj inspector general michael horowitz appear to testify to the senate about his report on russia. during the testimony, he plainly stated that prior to the dossier they decided against spying on carter page. >> seeking a warrant targeting carter page in mid-august 2016, the fbi attorney considered it a close call.
9:12 pm
the pfizer order was not requested at the time >> tucker: but once the dossier appeared, once it appeared, everything changed. watch. >> immediately after the cross fire hurricane team received reporting from christopher steele concerning pages alleged activities with russian officials, fbi attorneys advised the attorney that was ready to move forward with a request to obtain fisa authority to a sale page. fbi and department officials told us that the steel reporting establishing probable cause, and we concluded that the steel reporting played a central and essential role in addition to seeking the fisa order. that report says that the russia investigation wasn't begun for
9:13 pm
partisan political reason. that's horowitz's opinion. and you are hearing that repeated on the channels. and that is the fbi can retract that fact. >> is it fair to say he had a political bias against donald trump? >> given who he was paid for, there was a bias that needed to be disclosed to the court. >> does that say personally? not becauseyr he was in the par. >> we found through this that he was desperate to prevent mr. trump selection. >> tucker: the press may tell you the ig report showed nothing, but lindsey graham of all people capably summed up what it actually revealed. >> what has been described as a fear of regularities has become
9:14 pm
a massive criminal conspiracy over time, to defray the fisa court, to legally surveilling american citizen, and people at the highest level of our government. steve linick congressman devin nunes is on the house chaired committee. and he joins us tonight. thank you for coming on. so much of this ig report bears directly on things that you've been saying for the last couple of years, in some cases obliquely because you can't reveal all you know obviously because what you do for a do you feel vindicated by it?. >> i think i felt more than dedicated because i give horowitz a lot of credit because they were actually able to find things that we didn't know. we didn't know that they had actually found the top two his russian sources and i think that's a critical key. you have to bring into question
9:15 pm
everything that happened with mueller. i used to say that by the time he was appointed and walked into the room, and the one russian they knew of lied, it wasn't even true. they knew of lied, it wasn't even true. he heard something in a bar. so everything that myself andn our team did has been true. whether it was trump transition people being unmasked by obama era officials, whether it was the whole russia thing was a hoax and there were no russians, and the fact that they had defrauded the fisa court, that is why. if you remember back we need a criminal referral back at the beginning of the year, on criminal conspiracy to defraud the fisa court. >> tucker: so do you perceive the irony here, for two years democrats told us that russia was in defense with our political system. but why they were telling us that, they were quoting anonymous russian sources whose
9:16 pm
information wound up in the steele dossier. so it was the democrats using russian intelligence or opponents. >> i mean i have a lot of places i could go with this but let's go with my favorite one. the very thing they and accused us of doing, they do. the democrats and adam schiff that were using congressional resources to try to get pictures of trump. okay? >> tucker: i'm sorry, i have to laugh, it's so unbelievable. >> they are impeaching the president for trying to get dirt on biden and using government resources to do it. they use congressional resources, taxpayer resources to try to get pictures of the president. >> who would want those pictures anyway? >> that's a good question.
9:17 pm
that's an irony that too few point out. we now know that when john brennan publicly stated that the steele dossier had nothing to do with the fisa warrant, he was lying. in fact he said so under oath. so why is he not being held to account for that?in >> so you may also remember we talked about one of the criminal referrals that we made of. on criminal conspiracy, on manipulation of intelligence. and it has to do with exactly that, how did certain things end up in the ica? trump wins and a couple weeks later they decide they are going to have this i see a produced. within a month, and that all happens. that thing is totally in question because of not only what was put in it, like the dossier, but also what was not put in it. >> tucker: well i hope there is closure on that story.
9:18 pm
congressman, thanks so much. joe biden's presidential campaign appears to be losing a little steam. could he promised to serve just one term? and then the house is ongoing impeachment hearing, and we will watch it just so you don't have to coming up ahead. ♪
9:19 pm
9:20 pm
9:21 pm
9:22 pm
here, it all starts with a simple... hello! hi! how can i help? a data plan for everyone. everyone? everyone. let's send to everyone! wifi up there? uhh. sure, why not? how'd he get out?! a camera might figure it out. that was easy! glad i could help. at xfinity, we're here to make life simple. easy. awesome. so come ask, shop, discover at your local xfinity store today. >> tucker: at this point there is literally no turning back for democrats, they are committed to impeachment and stopping the process now if they could would just humiliate them while
9:23 pm
enraging their base. but if they could take it back, would they? or was a mistake? over the weekend, abigail spanberger found herself taking heat from a voter over w impeachment. watch. >> it has been incredible -- >> incredible [bleep] >> it's all a lie. >> tucker: that voter probably isn't alone. polls seem to show following support for removing the president from office while the president's reelection prospects appear to be improving. he is cofounder of purple strategies and he joins us tonight. so alex, i think you are republican but i think you have perspective on this. i don't know that you are emotionally engaged but i think you are trustworthy.
9:24 pm
>> you remember the wrong way jim marshall, the defensive end who picked up the fumble in 1964 and ran it into the touchdown but ran it into the end zone? well wrong way nancy pelosi has done the same thing here. it is among independent voters, they were supporting impeachment at rates of 60% especially in the swing states back in october. o after this persuasive democratic campaign to unite america behind impeachment, that support is now at 40%. and there is a reason for that. americans have figured out that the democrats have been doing this for two years. they were going to impeach the president and we will find a reason why later. maybe it's political and has nothing at all to do with me. >> tucker: so i mean, who
9:25 pm
would have guessed? it's not like it happened in 20 some years ago with similar results. so since nancy pelosi was nevert for impeachment, why did they end up doing this? s >> i think they did it for a couple of reasons. nancy pelosi figured out that she either had to lead the parade or the parade would run over her. this was driven by her caucus and even if the parade now goes over the cliff, she will try to stick with the parade. they understand that donald trump is a rejection of them. and they know so much better than we do about everything. and gosh, he's got to be removed from office because if they don't, if donald trump is right about anything than they have been wrong about everything. so you poor american people out there, you are so dumb that you elected donald trump once and you might even reelect him. thank heavens we are here to protect you from yourselves.
9:26 pm
that's what impeachment is about. >> even hear you describing it infuriated me. thank you for that able description. good to see you. when the 2020 race started, joe biden looked like a very safe pick.ri and he was the consensus pick. now it's not as clear. according to the reports though the biden campaign is considering a new and bold strategy. what if biden promised to serve only one term if elected? what that work? or would it serve only to emphasize his advanced age.ed here's the host of daily briefing.os joe biden's younger actually than bernie sanders. so for him to say i will serve only one term, appears to be conceding.
9:27 pm
>> i think it's interesting where it's all coming from. apparently there is a debate amongst former vice president biden's top advisors, the prominent consultants, and they are throwing this out there. they are saying what do people think about this? and that emphasizes the weaknesses. and on the other hand, some people are saying what americans want as an end to the chaos. and i have a few big problems with the idea of running for president and saying you are only going to run for one term. and how could you rebuild the democratic national committee with a lame duck president on
9:28 pm
his first day and you will have a primary that could continue. imagine a five year democratic party. the consultants would make so much money. of course, i'm not going to do that but, it's an issue. and it also makes him seem like he's not up for thema job. then just be the stopgap measure until the democratic savior can emerge. >> and that could be the effect for the nominee three years from now. >> that's like who would be best. there's somebody who actually says may be stacy of georgia, because she won the governor's election. so let's say that he picks stacy
9:29 pm
abram. immediately she thinks that she's a front runner to run in 2024 because why would she think that? they would be surrounded by people who want to take her out. >> so you just explained in about two and a half minutes why this is the worst idea anyone has ever come up with. >> i don't know if ever but, they throw the stuff out there and, joe biden is still doing very well nationally in the polls. >> amazing. you predicted from the beginning that he will be the nominee. >> did i predict that? >> tucker: i'm putting words in your mouth. >> i just want to give you credit. dana perino, great to see you. democrats have taken full control of the levers of politics in virginia and they are promising to usher in radical new gun laws. but some citizens and even some sheriffs are ready to push back on, that's next.
9:30 pm
also the highlight of today's impeachment resolution markup, and if there are, we will show them to you just ahead. >> how no fact witnesses were called before us and how staff questioning staff to get the truth was bizarre. truth was biz

9:35 pm
than most as a sneering hypocrite.e. remember one his office in 2017 in part by suggesting his opponent supporters were racist bigots who wanted to murder children. literally.t meanwhile, he himself made the fact that as a medical student he either donned a black facee are dressed up as a klansman. he can't really remember which it was. so hard to remember, was a black face or a clan robe? he didn't resign in the middle of that scandal, instead he explained that his personal sin illustrated just how evil the state of virginia is, if you are following. he did the crime but, it's your fault. the only proper penance for his wicked citizens would be to take away their rights. while this year he's getting his chance. democrats you remember duringay midterms took total control of virginia state government for the first time in 25 years. a few decades of mass emigration from central america and harvard law school will do that, and it did. it was only a quarter-century ago but the democrats of 2019 are very different from the democrats of 1994 particularly
9:36 pm
in the commonwealth of virginia. they are more power-hungry for one thing, more radical and far more willing to destroy centuries of all the constitutional their chief target they have announced it's the second amendment. when the virginia legislature convenes next month democrats are planning a wave of s aggressive new gun control measures. among other things they plan to be on the purchase of so-called assault weapons. now, what's an assault weapon? governor northam couldn't tell you of course, couldn't print defining with any precision at all. but one production is banning "high-capacity magazines. his life and the life of his family members are too important to him to do that but regular people will be affected and will be punished if they break that law. democrats also plan to pass a so-called red flag law which would allow police to seize the guns of people who had been charged with the crime. does that sound like something violates due process? they don't care.
9:37 pm
until this week democrats were planning to make their assault weapons ban absolute. in other terms, if they already owned an assault weapon, he had to turn in the government or they would send you to prison. that bill would ban take teaching people how to use firearms or even how to do martial arts if the government decides teaching that is it "in furtherance of civil disorder," whatever that means. and, that's awfully subjective. that's in the criminal justice reform.. so safety is definitely not the point. there is no big city that is safer than it was. they're all getting more dangerous. the point of these laws is to make citizens and virginia weaker.
9:38 pm
to disempower them, demoralize them and make them dependent on the state. dependent on buffoons. fortunately people are pushing back, virginia may have gone blue at the state level, the local is different. they have different values and they're willing to use the weapons of the left against them. 79 counties have declared themselves second and i'm in sanctuaries. one share of it is promising to swear in a citizens as deputies to protect their firearm rights. >> i'm not going to standht and say i want to enforce duly enacted laws by our legislature. i took an oath and i take it seriously. but when it comes too constitutionality and things i look at that opportunity to swear in deputy sheriffs as a way that legally i can push back on that right for my citizens to defend themselves when they bear arms. >> tucker: he knows a lot about firearms, he's a former marine special operations officer, and a martial arts instructor. thanks so much for coming on. will this suite of laws make
9:39 pm
virginia safer do you think? >> of course not. the biggest quote here should be elections have consequences, right?ou just a newly blue state and we are inundated with sort of thing. i don't think anybody is concerned as much about personal safety as virginians. but some of these are such an overreach, they do anything but make people safer. >> one of the proposed laws would require anyone who has a certain sort of rifle which would have to register it or that person would be in effect committing a felony. that seems like sticking her finger finger in the eye of law-abiding people. >> well, two of the restrictions are anything that has a threaded barrel or a pistol grips that hangs conspicuously beneath the action of the rifle.
9:40 pm
that includes all ar family of weapons. that includes the most popular rifle in the country. that's a big significant issue. it is significantly important in all the rural areas which makes up the fridge of virginia. >> tucker: so what you're saying is a gun that accounts for a tiny percentage of the crimes would in effect be banned or people would be felons if they don't register them. and it's scary. it's the military rifle. and that's three gun competitions and things like that. it's another example of it's another example of metropolitan areas trying to make laws that they have nothing to do with. the majority of gun owners and gun users is clearly in ruralre
9:41 pm
areas. this is a very big deal. when a sheriff says he's going to deputize the whole county.n >> tucker: but it sounds to me that like the leftist trying to pick a fight, a real fight with rural virginia. why are they doing that? it seems like they are intentionally driving the state apart and looking for conflict. >> because it's a lightning rod issue. the tail ends with handguns, it's a handgun bill. also before the senate and also a paramilitary, whatever that is, training before them senate. so i don't understand what the premise of this all is other than, making it a lightning rod issue and may be as a template for other states to follow. one thing that the sheriff is doing here, is protecting hise men. that's putting the deputies and direct confrontation and i would compel everybody to take a look
9:42 pm
at the laws or the proposals before they go into effect. >> thank you so much. the revolution always beats itself and we are watching that in real time on the left. there is cannibalism going on on the left wing of the spectrum. victor davis hansen explains to us what exactly were watching. matt gaetz, is speaking right now. we will be right back. >> this is nothing more than the

>> tucker: it you may have noticed a trend recently that on its face seems confusing. the left appears to despise itself. how, why? the party has moved so far left so fast that party members are constantly denouncing each other, sometimes even themselves for ideological offenses. like 1938 in moscow. kamala harris calls joe biden al racist, and only to be exposed for sending her own son to one.
9:48 pm
democratic voters of all races don't back kamala harris, the press collectively calls him racist and sexist. what are we watching? victor davis hanson as a history professor, classical history he is perfectly situated to evaluate what you were watching. he just wrote a piece called the "cannibalistic ideology of the left." what are we watching? >> we've seen that in the classical world and china and russia, especially in the french revolution and everyone is afraid to. yesterday they were social justice warrior, now there a counter revolutionary, tomorrow an enemy of the people. you see it with the crazy thagenda. they want to abolish everything, i.c.e. that would have been incomprehensible as late as
9:49 pm
2008, much less one obama won back in 2012. it begs the question, where are they doing this? why are socialist like elizabeth warren and bernie sanders, the leading candidates? they thought they had 16 years of obama -- hillary clinton to complete the transformation of the donald trump disrupted that. he's been successful. every time they tried to abort his presidency, the 25th amendment, the logan act. it fails and rather than take a deep breath they say it failed because we weren't zealous enough. you weren't revolutionary pure enough. we'll double down with ukraine. that is where they are and it's not you or me saying it. it's michael bloomberg -- now joe biden, it's old joe biden from scranton. he reinvented himself. mayor pete is back as a midwestern mayor because they

all know if they go the 72, if they go 72 mcgovern, that's where their heart and the party is. they will lose and they want to go 92 clinton and to be reasonable or moderate or act like they are. when you get the cycles, the emotions rain and as you see with that debate fiasco and the impeachment bars, they're going over the cliff. the only thing that will stop it is cannibalistic suicide. that is the limit to where this goes. that's a per directory. i don't think bloomberg or biden will stop that. >> tucker: this topic deserves a book. we have 30 seconds. i hope you will write that book by the way. if you could trace this revolution to its roots, wanted it start? when did the left go insane?

9:57 pm
it sounds significant but in real life it's pretty boring. because we are not partisan chimps, we don't feel obligated to waste the whole hour obsessing over it like some other channels we could name. like jeff zucker. but we did watch and we collected the highlights so you wouldn't have to. here they are. >> democrats are clarifying that no one is above the law, they are just clarifying that none of them are above partisanship and politics. this is the quickest, thinnest, weakest most partisan impeachment in all of american presidential history. and for all the radical left'sac attacks on the president's honesty, it is their lives that continue to fuel this scorched earth earth strategy of impeachment. when a member of this committee said president trump was an agent of the russian government engaged in a criminal conspiracy with the russians, he lied. >> i find it amazing atus best, hilarious at worst that we come way solemn and amazing moment. i've been trying this for almost
9:58 pm
three years, if you are a majority member of the party. the only thing that has changed is the opportunity from last november when you became the majority. and, we have spent all year in this community trying to impeach thee president. we occasionally have markups on bills, and most of that that do not address any issue that we talked about, but it is amazing to me that we are taking it now such a solemn oath, that we have made up something to now come to this point to say, this is very solemn. like the holiday season, it doesn't jump up and sneak up on you when you've been expecting it the whole time.
9:59 pm
