10:00 pm
it is so frustrating the media goes on with it. we are out of time. i know you have a strong view but the media are so corrupt. thank you for watching. never miss a show and we will see you next sunday when "the ♪ ♪ trey: thank you for joining us, i am trey gowdy, it's "sunday night in america," fbi believes there is sufficient evidence to charge hunter biden with violations of tax, and gun statutes accords to media reports fbi doesn't make charges decisions. federal prosecutors do. so the matter now sits with u.s. attorney in delaware. hunter biden's lawyers have asked for a chance to presents information before final charging decision is made, and under investigation since betwee
10:01 pm
2018, most in media either buried that story or claimed it was rushed disinformation. -- or it was russian disinformation, two things worth noting agents, prosecutors members of grand jury take an oath not to leak information, someone violated that oath. leaks in past have hurt republicans and democrats, but mainly the leaks hurt a justice system, in need of a reason to respect it. secondly, this marks 1,000 th time adam schiff has been wrong about something, he told you this was all russian disinformation, how do you think that dc media would treat a republican member of congress who is wrong as much as adam schiff is? >> joining us now former united states attorney from great state of texas,
10:02 pm
congressman from texas, director of national intelligence john lee radcliffe. this did not turn out to be russian disinformation, did it? >> well, you correctly pointed ut this is a two year anniversary this week of an effort by democratic chairman of house intelligence committee to create a lie that the allegations that may result in criminal charges against hunter biden and other members offed biden family was russian disinformation that lie was perpetuated by 51 intelligence former intelligence officials mostly democratic appointees from obama administration, then amplified by social media flat forms and mainstream media, that took place too mislead and misrepresent to american people who was happening and put it in perspective, two years ago this week. that i was having conherring as with bill barr, attorney
10:03 pm
general and fbi director christopher wray about need to put out public statements to not counter who china was doing or russia or iran was doing to meddle in the 2020 election. trey: you and i could not get away with what he has gotten away with, you were once you u.s. attorney in great state of texas. let viewers know, it doesn't mean that prosecutors will go forward, what do you think that u.s. attorney is avam waitievaluating right now. >> if the leaks are accurate and u.s. attorney is evaluates tax fraud charges, if u.s. attorney has them,
10:04 pm
they have already been reperu reviewed and approved twice in department of justice if they are following protocol, they have to start review with irs district council, then the doj criminal tax division has to green light it before it gets to u.s. attorney. if the u.s. attorney in delaware is looking at this, this is little doubt there is sufficient evidence to of probable cause to charge hunter biden with tax fraud. that is he received income he didn't declare on taxes. my guess is they are eva evaluating hunter biden hunter biden 's defense, saying, yeah i did it but i was an alcoholic or a drunker at tdrunk at the time, i am surprised that two years after having
10:05 pm
corroborating information in a laptop and corroborating witnesses talking about foreign agent re registration violations, that the leaks are not about those types of charges, i would have expected that at-this-point. trey: i hope his defense is better than i was drunk and high, unless the world has changed, i don't think voluntary instoc instoc intoxication is much of a defense. >> and now north korea is acting badly again, breakin making threats, what should your viewers? should they be worried or say just the craze rocket man? >> you see north korea doing unprecedentedded things they have not done in a language
10:06 pm
period of time -- long period of time, two weeks ago they fired ballistic missile over japan, and now there are reports that north korea may be preparing to test nuclear weapons for the first time in over 5 years. you know i don't think it is a coincidence they are happening now with the administration that has rewarded escalatory and provocative behavior. when ran started rattling nuclear weapons sabre, they got offered a trillion dollar sanctions relief deal, and kim jong-un in north korea wants sanctions relief and a piece of the action, he understands that administration, sometimes this bad behave wo behavior is rewarded. trey: another allegation against hunter biden involves making false statement in application for a firearm, let's walk down
10:07 pm
memory lane, do you recall what media and mueller's prosecutors got animated go false statements, they could not think of a prison sentence long enough for someone who made false stations. do you believe that will be the same reaction? >> there have been a lot of questions about even-handed application of justice, folks will recall roger stone prosecutors wanted 7 years for lie ing to congress, when bill barr reduces it to 40 months people called for hiss ric, contrast that with trump hating fbi director director andy mccabe who lied to congress 4 times under oath, his punish ament was to get fired from the fbi and sentenced to work for low rating cnn. if hunter biden is charged with false statements and either convicted or pleads
10:08 pm
guilty, it will be interesting to see how the mainstream media and others approach this you know the even-handed application law from bob mueller and others says this is a very serious offense. trey: if we could work around your golf schedule, i look forward to having you back omple thank you for joininon, thank you for joining us. trey: coming up former president donald trump is asking supreme court to intervene in his case with department of justice, what does he want? former doj official, john yu is joining us next on sunday night in america. who's on it with jardiance? ♪ ♪ we're the ones getting it done. we're managing type 2 diabetes and heart risk. we're on it with jardiance.

10:13 pm
10:14 pm
trey: welcome back to sunday night in america, former president donald trump asked supreme court to reverse 11 circuit court of appeal which reversed part of what florida trial judge orders, so a reversal of a reversal i think would put us back to where we started. and we'll need professional help. we bring in former deputy assistant attorney general john yoo. what is the former president asking this supreme court to do? >> great to be back. you got it right. judge cannon appointed a master to review 11,000 documents that fbi seized from mar-a-lago.
10:15 pm
to make sure they are not protected. her order, was reversed by the 11 circuit, appeals court that includes florida, as to just the hundred classified documents that fbi found, those the appeals court said the justice department can continue to use in the investigation, doesn't have to go through the review process. so now, the trump lawyers have gone to u.s. supreme court said, please reverse that one piece that hundred classified documents parts of the order that have been accepted from the general view by the special master, a reversal of a reversal would bring us back to judge canon's original order of appointing a special master. trey: if i'm right, i should stop. but i'm not going to, i'll ask another question. are there some things as you look at this case in and
10:16 pm
chronology, that trump's lawyers could have appealed or asked for? >> a great point. you remember, from your practicing days the real question, what is donald trump's end game? what does he really want to achieve. even if you were to win at the supreme court, judge dearie, he is doing his review as to all other documents, he may will be finished in a month, it might not mean that any appeal of the supreme court will make that big of a difference. i think they are both the justice department and donald trump, they are testing i've other, they know they -- each other, they know they will be back in court about something else, probably something more do with january 6 investigation. i don't think that there is really any important legal issue that has nationwide significant that was draw will attention of supreme court. i think that president trump is playing for more time.
10:17 pm
trey: you have studied these issues for most of your life. to our viewers are not as familiar with the way this works. the is up we is divided to judicial circuits, this is the 11th. is the supreme court divided where one justice gets to hear matters from a circuit who is that justice, what did cacan he do and what is their options. >> i have to remind something boater to do with my life -- better to do with my life. the country is divided in to 13 circuits. florida is 11th. when there are emergency appeals like that that require immediate attention of supreme court, there is a justice who is assigned for each of those circuits to handle the emergency actions, this case justice clarence thomas, i clerked for him 30 years ago.
10:18 pm
he makes an initial decision and will send it to supreme court for all 9 justice to decide, only thing to decide, is this important enough to stop the appeals court and bridge the case up -- bring case up to u.s. scwowr supreme court to hear oral arguments briefing, they usually do that only in most important time sensitive cases where something nationally significant is at stake. trey: all right that leads to my final question. chief justice roberts said there are no obama judges no bush judges or trump judges, they are just judges, people who look at thomas say he is a conservative therefore he must rule this way, they may be wrong, right? >> that is a wrong way to look at this supreme court or lower court judges, i think that justice thomas will look at standards here, i would be very surprised to
10:19 pm
see justice thomas or the supreme court reach down and intervene into this case, i think they would rather 1 circuit and judge canon and judge dearie figure it out. trey: professor john yoo thank you for joining us on a sunday night. >> thank you, trey. trey: up next, governors are chief executives like president, arkansas governor asa hutcheson is one of them he is joining us next on "sunday night in america." bipolar depression. it made me feel trapped in a fog. this is art inspired by real stories of bipolar depression. i just couldn't find my way out of it. the lows of bipolar depression can take you to a dark place. latuda could make a real
10:20 pm
difference in your symptoms. latuda was proven to significantly reduce bipolar depression symptoms. and in clinical studies, had no substantial impact on weight. this is where i want to be. call your doctor about sudden behavior changes or suicidal thoughts. antidepressants can increase these in children and young adults. elderly dementia patients have increased risk of death or stroke. report fever, confusion, stiff or uncontrollable muscle movements, which may be life threatening or permanent. these aren't all the serious side effects. now i'm back where i belong. ask your doctor if latuda is right for you. pay as little as zero dollars for your first prescription.

10:27 pm
resume, you were u.s. attorney, and dea administratadministrator, what is the main difference between serving in state government and federal government. you have done both. >> well, first of all, you are dealing with issues that they impact everyone's lives whether you are in washington or here. but they can call you up here, they know you. and so that is what is nice, it is more personal in the state, but you are held accountable to get things done, not enough to kick it down the road, we mentioned some of our success stories, but you know our foster children, we had our foster children program and crisis we didn't have enough foster parents, i created a task force that worked on this and improved our foster care. and start a reentry program to help those wants to second chance coming out of prison.

10:50 pm
having them there he drove the bus themselves, he said the kids were so proud to be there, on the way back it was chatter and pride and i love that so much. you know. our officers they give, they give and they are asked to do more and more with less and less. they need their community working side by side with them. and that is what we saw on thursday. what i look forward to seeing more of. trey: you know, the officers do need that. but i think we need good news in the correct pro portion, bad news gets all of the attention. i think you shared with me the story of a officer who stopped a car and bought a car seat rather than issuing a citation. how do we get focus on that good story instead of negativity. >> i think love is so much stronger than hate. that is what we're seeing

10:53 pm
the left want to defund the police still, instead of calling a cop when someone is breaking into your home, they would like you to call a social worker, a psychologist or a life coach. logically the defund the police move ament was a train wreck, politically worse, the smart politicians to lif left figured out, we need to stop talking about something as stupid as defunding the police, this is a dumb idea. there are not enough protesters to talk about us defunding police, most stopped talking about it they forgot no tell congresswoman corey bush, watch and listen. >> the thing about defund police we have to tell the internarrative. people here defund police, san jose, say reallocate, say divest, remove, but still the same thing. >> if you could do it again
