tv Tucker Carlson Tonight FOX News February 13, 2020 5:00pm-6:00pm PST
♪ ♪ >> tucker: good evening and welcome to "tucker carlson tonight." america is a great country precisely to the extent that it's a fair country. fairness is the most important american idea. it's the foundation of all others and equality before the law is the purest expression of it. that's why the roger stone case ought to horrify anyone who has followed it. left or right, republican or democrat, doesn't matter. nine years in jail for lying. that's what prosecutors have demanded that roger stone receive. how disproportionate is that sentence? let's put it this way. james clapper and john brennan are both confirmed purge errors, they did it in public. they will never be
prosecuted. at this moment they are getting rich on television. meanwhile for the crime of sending explicit sexual photos to a child, the serious felony, former congressman anthony weiner got just 21 months and he served less. wiener has an admitted sex offender but he was also a close personal friend of bill and hillary clinton's. and in the end that's what mattered most. see how this works? prosecutors want roger stone to serve nine years not because he hurt someone or hurt this country. he didn't. but because they hate him. as status liberals they hate his politics. but, above all, they hate his attitude. stone made fun of the ruling class. that's not allowed, and they never forgot it. they are trying to kill him for it. how unscrupulous are they in pursuit of that goal? prosecutors lied about what stone did. they linked him to foreign election interference. when he had no tie to that and it had nothing to do with the charges against him. not one thing. then, apparently, they deceived their superiors at the department of justice about it. attorney general bill barr suggested as much today.
watch. >> i was under the impression that what was going to happen was very much that i had suggested, which is deferring to the judge and then pointing at various factors and circumstances. on monday night, when i first saw the news reports, i said gee, the news is spinning this. this is not what we were going to do. >> so you were surprised? >> i was very surprised and once i confirmed that that's actually what weigh filed, i said that night to my staff that we had to get ready because we had to do something in the morning to amend that and clarify what our position was. >> tucker: now, thanks to details we have just learned, and tough ask yourself why are we just learning them -- but we know them and they lead us to the conclusion that the charges and recommended sentence against roger stone weren't the only parts of the process distorted by
politics grotesquely, the trial itself was too. during the jury selection process during stone's trial. lawyers asked the eventual former o foreman of the jury if there was anything to judge her. no she said she hadn't paid much attention to the russia probe that turned out to be a lie and a stupid one at that that juror's twitter account is public and turns out she is anti-trump zealot who closely filed the mueller investigation. in one tweet, for example, she called donald trump, quote: the klan president. when stone was taken into custody in a dawn raid armed with automatic weapons and air boat she mocked the idea the arrest was excessive. seems fine to me. this is not a neutral person. this is not someone capable of judging this trial fairly. this is partisan who lied about who she was. roger stone is facing life in prison because an obama appointed judge, amy burman jackson allowed this woman to run the jury.
now, that's all fine with cnn. which is colluded with the justice department from day one on this and which is rooting for stone to i do behind bars. it should be deeply upsetting to anyone who cares about fairness. for example the republicans in the senate, you think they would be outraged by all of this. and, yet, it's perfectly obvious they could care less. watch. >> whether or not there was political interference in such cases, i would rather look at the details before i answer hypotheticals. [inaudible] >> i assume he is contemplating it seriously at this point. >> he might be. he didn't rule it out and he has already been convicted on seven counts. >> but he didn't rule it in. >> the president has not ruled out pardoning for roger stone, would that be a good idea. >> he hasn't said he would do it. so we will wait until that happens, if that happens. >> tucker: yeah.
whatever. not really paying attention. naming new post offices. if you are a republican voter and you may be, these are the people you vote for to protect you and your country. think they will? democrats meanwhile have whipped themselves into a frenzy of blood lust. stone must rot behind bars if they try to save him we will impeach him again. >> will might you impeach him over this over roger stone and the sentencing. >> you know, we are not going to take our options off the table. weave don't wake up in the morning wanting to impeach him. we want to work on prescription drugs, background checks and infrastructure. we are not going to let him just torch this democracy because he thinks that he has been let off once and we are not going to do something about it. >> tucker: now eric swalwell may be the slowest of the 425 house members. certainly in the running, 435. but even he can remember talking points. so this is among their plans. another impeachment. why would they do that? why do democrats care so
much about punishing roger stone? here's why. because if roger stone spends even a day in jail, they will point to him for the next 40 years as evidence that russia collusion was real. that's what they really want. let's hope the president doesn't let them have it. judge andrew napolitano was a fox senior judicial analyst. we just spoke to him about roger stone. judge, thanks so much for joining us tonight. >> i'm happy to be here. >> tucker: is it your view a problem that the foreman of the jury in roger stone's trial turned out to be a former congressional candidate who attacked trump on twitter and mocked concern, i think most critically, about the fbi raid on stone's house? why was someone like this allowed to remain on the jury? >> let me start by telling you i'm happy to be here with you. and roger stone and i. >> tucker: thank you, you too. >> roger stone and i have been friends for about 40 years. i will take the friendship out of this and wear my judicial hat.
>> tucker: okay. >> this is information that she must have hidden from the lawyers and the judge who interrogated her before she was put on the jury. now, in federal court, judges pick the jurors. so, judges do the interrogation. >> tucker: right. >> the lawyers sign off ahead of time on the questions the judges are going to ask. the purpose of the interrogation is to weed out people that have a bias, prejudice, and knowledge of case or interest in the outcome. she obviously had a prejudice against roger stone, a bias in favor of his prosecution, and an interest in seeing him convicted. that should automatically goff her. now, what do you do when you discover this after the conviction, tucker? the proper thing for the judge to do is to bring this juror back in the courtroom in the presentation of roger stone and his lawyers and in the presence of the four prosecutors who have since resigned because their resignations are not effective until she, the trial judge, accepts them and interrogate this woman in order to determine whether the bias influenced
her guilty vote and whether that bias was passed on to other members of the jury. >> tucker: so, that's interesting. that sounds, from a layman's perspective like the right thing to do. though, i mean, the court screens for bias, of course, in jury selection. if it turned out that that juror, who ran the jury, as the foreman, lied about her background or her reviews, what would that mean? >> it would be catastrophic for her. first of all, she is a lawyer. so she would be prosecuted for perjury since the statements are given under oath and if convicted she would lose her license to practice law that would be the least of her concerns. she probably would serve jail time if she lied in order to affect the outcome of a case and if she did lie, if a judge concluded she lied, tucker, that is an automatic vacation of the conviction and in order for a new trial if the government even wants to try stone a second time. >> tucker: so, judge amy
burman jackson has kept roger stone under a gag order for many months now. he makes his living by speaking of course. he is now broke as a result. i'm confused we can go on television and attack roger stone, cnn does it all day long. they did it all day today. roger stone is not allowed to defend himself using the first amendment rights the rest of us enjoy. how is that allowed in this country. >> highly inappropriate and direct violation of the first amendment there sat least an argument to be made about restraining the defendants and prosecutors from making statements about the case while it's pending because their statements might make their way to the jury. that's an extra courtroom way of communicating with the jury. i hated having to do it but there are sometimes that's the only way you can assure the integrity of a trial. but there is zero benefit to be served to the justice system in silencing a defendant after he has been convicted. once conviction comes down or acquittal as the indicates macase maybe.
the defendant presumes the full panoply of rights that he had before the case had started. >> tucker: you would certainly think. finally the sentence guidelines here, so, the median rapist in this country serves about four years in prison. nine years is the top end of the recommendation for roger stone. put that in context for us. why would they recommend that? >> probably because they dislike him. they despise him. listen, if you despise the person you are prosecuting, you probably shouldn't be in the case. i did the calculation myself as if i were the judge. tucker, there are some subjective elements to the calculation. 20 questions. aggravating factors. 20 mitigating factors. choose the factors that apply. i came up with 3.5 years. this is just a recommendation. she could sentence him from zero to 50 years. under the new law that
president trump signed. she is no longer bound by the guidelines. it's just a recommendation. so, when the public became aware of this recommendation, most of us were outraged. i mean, roger stone is not a menace to society. this isn't a jail case to begin with. much less one of this magnitude. the judge is free to reject it now we don't know what she is going to do. in my view she has to examine the integrity of the trial and the conviction before she proceeds to sentencing. >> tucker: i doubt she will. judge, thanks so much for your progressive tonight. we really appreciate it. >> pleasure, tucker. >> tucker: well, human ted talk pete buttigieg is on described in the press as a moderate of course it's hard to be actual moderate in the democratic party. all of them are long gone. one plank of mr. moderate buttigieg's agenda is decriminalizing drug possession nationwide. and that means all drugs.
that's not a roach clip, that's crack cocaine, methamphetamine, that's heroin, that's fentanyl. legalize them all. how decadent and out of touch? you have to be like a road scholar mackenzie guy to think that's a good idea. by the way mayor pete's plan is already being attempted in thattemptedin the city of se. left wing have abandoned almost all drug prosecution? how is it going? is it working? jason is a reshow host. thanks for coming on. pete buttigieg is telling us we need to do this. it's essentially happened where you live. has it worked? >> simple answer, no. it has not worked at all. what we have seen here unfortunately is an increase over the last 10 years when our prosecutor in king county dan sadderberg decided first to the to charge felony accounts and then he chose instead not to charge anyone with quote, unquote, personal amounts of possession. so, to your point. crack cocaine,
methamphetamine, whatever. and what we have seen at the same time is a dramatic increase in the amount of overdose deaths. at the same time, we have also seen a dramatic increase in the amount of drug deals that are happening out in the open in seattle streets. a big part of the problem is that cops will say well, now they don't really have any leverage to use overaddicts to get them to seek treatment because they know there is actually no consequences. and then you have got the drug dealers carrying less product on them. they resupply. they restock up on their supply more often than they would normally do. but they know if they were to get stopped. if they had some product on them, they can say no, i'm not a drug dealer i'm just a user and they know they are actually not going to see any time in jail for their drug crimes. and that's why it's gotten so out of control. it's been a total failure. >> tucker: so have you got to wonder if the people behind this idea have ever met a drug addict or had one in the family or done drugs. do they understand the sum
total of human misery that they're creating here? do they care? >> so, dan satterberg does. he had a sister who he lost to a drug addiction. the problem with this when you put ideology into what is a reasonable idea, because i do think it's reasonable to say if you are an addict and not committing a crime, i don't want to just throw you in jail. i want to put new treatment. i think that's the right thing to do. >> tucker: help in some way. >> you at least try to help the people that you can you can't even at this point even leverage jail time against an addict to go after the drug dealer to turn on the drug dealer to go after the bad guys. and it's an unfortunate reality all across seattle. they tried it in a neighboring county. and it was a total disaster. they actually did the right thing which was they got rid of that policy. >> tucker: i hope pete buttigieg take as close look at seattle. i'm sure he will like what he sees. great to see you tonight. thank you so much. >> thank you.
it's unacceptable that americans pay vastly more than people in other countries, for the exact same drugs. but they aren't listening. they've just raised the prices of over five hundred drugs. president trump supports a bipartisan plan, that would force drug companies to lower prices. but the senate won't act. tell senate leaders to stop drug company price gouging and lower drug prices now.
yes! can you help keep these iguys protected online?? easy, connect to the xfi gateway. what about internet speeds that keep up with my gaming? let's hook you up with the fastest internet from xfinity. what about wireless data options for the family? of course, you can customize and save. can you save me from this conversation? that we can't do, but come in and see what we can do. we're here to make life simple. easy. awesome.
ask. shop. discover. at your local xfinity store today. >> tucker: okay, here is a quiz. how many times did joe biden run for president? three times at least. and so far he still never finished beth than fourth in a primary contest. any primary contest. but joe biden is still in the race and he has a
comeback plan make phony campaign ads to pander to black voters. here is one. >> we don't feel no ways tired. we have come too far from where we started. nobody told me the road would be easy. and i don't believe he brought me this far to stop now. you don't like what's going on in this country, you only have one thing to do. work. together we can and will win. let's take back this country now. >> tucker: normal person would look at that ad and say you know what, guys we can't run this. it's too embarrassing, too fake. that's not who i am. no one is going to buy it. joe biden says run it. not the only one degrading himself for votes. on tuesday night pete buttigieg suggested if minority voters want to survive they got to vote for him. >> when people of color fear for their own place in their own country, while infants are torn from their parents at the border, we must get
this right. [cheers and applause] we can say to a young woman in a i i ha hijab. we can say you belong securely in the heart of the american project. >> tucker: man, is it repetitive, this stuff. murdock contributing editor. great to see you super simple question. the spot we ran. ran it last week too. fascinating thing we ever seen. do you think that will move a single vote? is there a human being in this country look at that and say you know what? that's like the modern ralph abernathy right there i don't think that's the reaction we will get at all. adopt southern ache sends. something that hillary clinton has done. joe biden, you may recall, was in virginia.
i think back when he was running for re-election as vice president. he said to a group of black people that if mitt romney ran you are all going to be ba in chains you may recall that disgusting thing he said southern accent. outtakes with gone with the wind very stupid. >> tucker: so i think what you are describing is patronizing behavior. slowing down the cadence of your speech. using simple words. babying someone. i can't think of anything nor insulting than that. >> totally insulting. why not talk to black people as adults say we are going to listen to your situation. not all black people are terrified of the police. we are not all running away from the cops. why not talk to black folks about starting businesses. running businesses. expanding businesses. going to work. going to the movies. going out to dinner. black folks do things like that. being black in america is not all about running from the cops. they chase you down the street with batons which i guess is the pete buttigieg type of stereotype he has
presented. >> tucker: really quick, i just have to get your view of biden and not just that app. but of the campaign more broadly for months he has been saying and he has been doing it this week yi well in iowa or new hampshire because i'm too pale. once i get down to south carolina i will win. >> biden is somebody who can beat trump and therefore let's back biden i guess that was the thinking. now he looks -- embarrassing showings may get hurt in nevada as well. wonderful sort of electability halo he had is now completely shattered. he may continue to stumble down into the memory hole and eventually just disappear. >> tucker: he shouldn't be running for president. he has done a lot. he is not good at it. i played paddle tennis a few times i'm not good at it. i gave it up. don't do things you are not good at. >> left it alone and made a fool of himself unfortunately. >> tucker: exactly don't degrade yourself in final years. good to see you.
15. slowly but surely the disease is becoming a threat to the planet. and the scale of that threat became clear yesterday in china with almost 15,000 new cases in 242 nor deaths on wednesday. it's clear that even china's authoritarian government can't keep this under control. dr. marc siegel joins us tonight. thanks for coming on. >> hi, tucker. >> tucker: if you graph this out it seems to point up. that's the trajectory from a layman's perspective from this virus. rumor concerned than you were. >> i'm becoming more concerned. the international health community is in state of outrage over the way this virus was handled in china from the very beginning. we believe they knew about this weeks before it ever started to come out or declared. now they are saying we are running low on test kits so we have to start using chest x-rays or pneumonia we see in 15% of cases that points to a larger problem how many
thousands of cases are out there in china that are still undiagnosed or never diagnosed? the head of the cdc pointed out today that we think within the first week you can spread it asymptomatically before you even have symptoms. all of this points to it still not being under control. we still don't have the centers for disease control in there to help out. neighboring countries are starting to get more and more concerned about this. physicians having to diagnose this without all the material they need and the ability to isolate patients is very worrisome. and eventually it's going to spill over to the rest of the world. potentially causing a pandemic. i want to point out a neighbor right next to china, north korea, the hermit kingdom is claiming today they don't have a single case. i ask you, tucker. do you believe that? i certainly don't. talk about lack of disclosure. a virus is something that doesn't obey boundaries. it's public health. the world needs to come together here to solve this problem before it really gets out of control.
>> tucker: the spanish flu of 1918 made it to the remote island. that tells you everything. >> absolutely. >> tucker: dr. seale, thank you. we will see you soon. >> thank you, tucker. >> tucker: a week ago on this show we told you about the new way forward act. if passed that law would welcome dangerous violent criminals into the united states, let them say here even if they commit more crimes and then, amazingly, require taxpayers to pay for criminals who have already been deported to come back to our country. you get to buy plane tickets for armed robbers to move here from guatemala. it's lunatic. the bill wouldn't just remake immigration policy. it would remake the country itself. that's the point of course. supporters of the bill often say openly, america's criminal justice system is racist. if you want crimes punished and criminals kept out of your country, you are racist, too. only a truly radical party would consider a piece of legislation like that. the democratic party of 2020 is every bit that radical.
if democrats win this year's presidential election, some version of this insanity will almost certainly become law. but immigration isn't the only issue on which democrats have become dangerously radical. it's now virtually every issue, including, believe it or not, banking regulation. america has about 8,000 separate banks and credit unions and every one of them received what'sed a camel's rating. the rating evaluates a bank's financial health based on assets, earnings, sensitivity to market risk and other relevant factors. criewcialgly, al crucially all six parts of a camel's square running a functioning business. bad camel scores doesn't just mean a bank is in danger of failing and investors should be weary of it. low scores trigger regulatory intervention by the federal government. they can destroy a bank. it's a big deal. now congressional democrats are pushing to add a seventh factor to the camel's rating. a nakedly political one. a bill called the promoting diversity and inclusion in
banking act is currently working its way through the house. the bill would impose a so-called diversity mandate on banks if they want to stay in business. we're not talking about diversity of assets. that's might make sense. no. this is the age of wokeness. nobody cares abou cares about mh anymore. monitor banks to make sure they are providing enough antibias training and keep track of hiring practices based on race. they get out the ledger and see what color everyone is. any bank with more than a billion dollars in assets would be required by law to having something called diversity and inclusion officer reporting directly to the ceo. why are democrats doing this? to make the country better? right. no. it's a shakedown like everything else they do. listen to this strikingly clear explanation from the house financial services subcommittee on diversity and inclusion. >> we need to change it and we need to change it right away. the excuse of we can't find
any, that's what i'm hearing from some of you, that's not acceptable. when you have power, you have to use it. we have the power. regulations may be the thing to do. i think the current was the good idea. after having heard things today, we think we have now got to move to the stick. that's regulation. >> tucker: when you have power you have got to use the stick. that's congressman al green of houston. at the same hearing green pepper the witnesses with questions about whether it was time for a quote race conscious regulations in banking? you probably had no idea race had anything to do with banking and most americans, of course, had any idea that any of this was going on. banks got the message loud and clear. hire come sorrows the same that have destroyed education in america or the feds will crush you. where are congressional republicans while this has been going on? well, take a guess. as is so often the case they are playing along. at the same diversity
subcommittee hearing ranking member ann wagner of missouri praised banks for their work instituting unconscious bias training. by the way something that had never been shown to do anything other than deepen racial wounds and divide this country. ever. it's a given that all of this is stupid and wasteful and divisive. certainly is. but it's also dangerous to the country. so we already know what happens when the government pressures financial institutions to make financial decisions based on political considerations why have seen it. 90's democrat and republican administrations banks faced steadily rising pressure to make more risky loans to borrowers with lower income credit histories and much greater risk at fault. they complied. afraid not to. americans received subprime loans. remember that? down payments were cut or eliminated all together. in most cases the intentions behind this weren't bad, actually. the government wanted more
people, especially people in minority groups to own homes. again, that's a laudable goal. home ownership is a good thing for everyone. it gives all of us a stake in our society. something to be proud of and by the way a legacy to leave our children. but the way to promote home ownership is to make homes less expensive. and to create an economy robust enough that people can afford to buy them. they didn't do that. they ignored reality. that doesn't work. it never works. but for years. the government demanded that banks follow the rules whether they made sense or not. and the result as you remember with the 2008 financial meltdown. worst economic crisis in this country in 80 years. since 1929. america still has not recovered from it. nor apparently has congress learned a thing. we live in the age of woke colleges and woke tech companies, woke billionaires. woke investment banks. now we have, of course we do, woke dating. mark steyn joins us to discuss why more and more
>> tucker: time now for special genius edition of final exam. the segment where the smart people in our building compete to show who has been paying close attention to the news this week and win prizes from the tucker carlson online store. our first contestant a true cable news institution someone with whom i worked 20 years ago. lou dobbs hosts lieu dobbs tonighlou dobbs onfox business.

unfair, actually, tucker, because i do recall having been asked about this by some guy on tv called tucker carlson. so if you want to give the question to. >> no, no, no. please. >> are you sure? >> answer the question. >> tucker: look, joe biden wouldn't remember it, so it's really a test of your memory. >> yeah. that's true. you are right. thanks for pointing that out, martha. anyway, this was said, i believe, the shape of our democracy, which in my mind ought to be shaped like marilyn monroe but isn't. i would have to go with mayor pete on that, i think. >> a curvey democracy. >> yeah. >> tucker: slightly taller mayor? to the tape. >> and now deep thoughts. with mayor pete. >> it's not a sizzling glamorous issue but the shape of our democracy is the issue that effects every
other issue. >> tucker: trap -- >> i remember how he would remember that it's unforgettable. >> it might have changed shape by now. >> tucker: question 4. question 4 is a two point question and multiple choice. a man in great britain recently took this photography while out climbing. it looks like an angel descending from heaven but a weather phenomenon that occurs in certain conditions. what is this phenomenon known as angel orb, sky pudding or c a broken specter? 2 points. angel orb, sky pudding.

[buzzer] >> they serve pie in the sky. a dish on their menu. so lou's sky pudding should
get a point for that. >> tucker: i totally agree. if meteorologist had any kind of imagination they would call it that. >> i look stupid now. >> tucker: not making this up. this is for two points. here it is. a 20-point question. an american restaurant chain has partnered with crocs. to make clog. which chain dares to do this a kentucky friday chicken afc or b pizza hut or c burger king? mark steyn? >> i'm going to go with pizza hut. >> the pizza hut that does seem perfect. >> i wear peperoni loafers all the time. > >> tucker: when i shuffle in to pizza hut for hawaiian slice i'm wearing the clogs. is that correct.

♪ >> tucker: online dating apps are already reordering human relationships and may be been some joy from them. okcupid is encouraging viewers to talk about their political elites in order to help the website find a partner for them. new york is full of strong progressive political views. 83% of those should despise they would never date some someone who doesn't hate donald trump. what does this tell you? >> well, i think the fact that actually all the categories, particularly all the advertisi advertising, where they say it's okay to choose mr. wright based on how far he leans left or it's okay to date someone who is
pro-choice, these things actually suggest that people are finding it harder than anyone to get a date. in fact, there has been a collapse of dating rituals and a collapse of dating, and a collapse of relationships. love can strike you where it finds you. politics shouldn't be factored into that to the degree this is. people actually have litmus political tests. they put me up against radical marxist feminists, thinking they would get a lot of fireworks and it would make for great television. about 2 minutes in, wow, these really severe radical marxist feminist is telling me what they get i am is kind of turning me off. i get kind of sad. the idea of choosing your partner based on their attitude
to these kind of political considerations is -- if you feel like that, why not just go to an eric swalwell rally. in the unlikely event there is anyone you want to date, you already know. >> tucker: there are only 11 people, but you point something, i think, really important out, which is, at the root of all of this woke stuff and the woke culture, it's a sad pit of loneliness. a lot of these are sad people. >> yeah. all of the statistics bear that out. in fact, young people are finding it more and more difficult to form relationships, in part because of all these rules. by the way, like all woke corporations, you have things like, for example, there's the situation in britain were a transgender lady made a criminal complaint that she had been booked for a movie and when the
star formed dominic found that she was in fact transgender and nonconforming, if you know what i mean, he fired her and she complained. she was actually expecting a judge to order this guy to have with somebody he doesn't want to have -- it doesn't matter whether you are straight or whatever. you've got to show how super woke you are by having it even if you don't want to. that's dating in the super woke era. >> tucker: that is woke. the ability to supplement your most basic desires for political opinions. >> yeah, so you go on a dating website and pick someone you are not even the least bit attracted to just to show how progressive you are. >> tucker: a mark steyn, great to see you tonight. >> thank you, tucker.
