rex tillerson. see you tomorrow, here is "hannity," next. >> sean: welcome to "hannity," history in the making, a meeting between president donald trump and at ti prime minister, benjamin netanyahu to reset the relationship between america's closest ally in the middle east, up to eight years of a hostile obama administration is very refreshing, it is now clear beer on a new path towards peace and to fighting radical islamic terrorism. coming up, we will play you the highlights but first, the altar radical left propaganda media is out to utterly destroy donald trump and it is doing you the american people, a great disservice. that is tonight's opening
monologue. you heard me saying since 2008, journalism is dead. but what we are saying play out now is far worse. the altar radical left propaganda media has created what i call an informational crisis in this country, they can no longer be trusted. let me explain. after the resignation of lieutenant general michael flynn, the media is in rushing to paint what is a completely false narrative. let's start with "the new york times" ," they are so-called bombshell report, the press is running absolutely wild with. it amounts to nothing more than a fake news political hit piece. the times ran the headline, trump campaign aides have repeated contact with russian intelligence. four current and unnamed american officials who offer up vague details about intercepted communications between members of the trump campaign and the russian officials. but buried in the stories are
major caveats, the only trump campaign member named with his former campaign manager paul manafort. we already knew he did business and rough in russia. the identity of the russian intelligence officials who participated, and how many of mr. trump's advisors were talking to the russians. it is also unclear whether the conversation had anything to do with mr. trump himself. the story is very light on details and actual facts, very heavy on assumption. then you have chuck todd, and bc, he is trying to capitalize on flynn's resignation. >> good evening, i am chuck todd here. welcome to day one of what is arguably the biggest presidential scandal involving a foreign government. >> sean: the same guy that said it's a religious litmus
test -- let me set the record straight. so-called journalist chuck todd, he is no tim russert, it's refusing to do so. mike flynn was wrong, he misled the president and vice president. but so far, there is zero evidence that flynn broke any law in any way. fox news is reporting that there is zero indication that flynn misled the fbi when they interviewed him. this is the beginning. take a look at what this winding liberal from "the new york times" a sub. >> the issue is what did he tell trump, that he and trump actually cook up this whole thing? after the russians did not respond harshly to the eviction of their spies and diplomats, trump tweeted out some positive encouragement of this. did the two of them cook this u up?
the first is we have never taken seriously from the very beginning russia packed our election. that was a 9/11 scale event. they attacked the core of our varied democracy. >> sean: you will compare this to 9/11 and pearl harbor? if he ever bothered to do some research, and read the joint report, it found russia did not interfere in the election vote in any way. then there is this former news anchor, kind of laughable, dan rather. watergate is the biggest political scandal of my lifetime, until maybe now. it was a close as came to debilitating constitutional prices until maybe now. really? maybe, possibly? this false narrative has even led to a democratic congressman to use the word treason when talking about an american hero,
michael flynn, general flynn. >> if members of the administration are essentially conspiring with russia, either through the campaign and now in the administration itself, that's the definition of treason. this is a very, very serious affair. >> sean: you know that the flynn resignation is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the altar left propaganda media and their coordinated campaign to purposely misinform the american people that they have an agenda. they also claimed that the president's temporary travel ban is either a religious test or anti-muslim even though 90% of the world's muslims are not included. watch this. >> mr. trump established a religious test from those muslim countries. >> sean: great fear mongering. the countries were designated by the obama administration and congress because they have ties to terror. as i reiterated, 90% of the world's muslim population which is over 40 plus muslim majority
countries are not affected in any way. the breathlessness in the alt left propaganda media coverage is astounding. all these examples show exactly why you should not trust the lazy leftist propaganda media. it is also why president trump is going to call on nontraditional media outlets at his press conferences, like he did. take a look how cnn reacted. priceless. >> the last three news conferences, all of the questions to the american news media have been handled by conservative press. there is no other way to describe it but the fix is in. this white house, president, does not want to answer critical questions about his associates, aid contacts with the russians during the course of that campaign. >> sean: may be cnn should not have colluded with hillary clinton's campaign and tried to cover it up! that's a pretty reasonable response there. it's pretty simple. overpaid, partisan hacks that
are lazy, throwing one giant hissy fit because their candidate lost. because of that, they are carrying out this full on assault. piers morgan and former u.s. attorney lead to the district of columbia joe digenova. you are a hard-hitting guy, piers morgan, you go after trump when you disagree with him. you've also praised him when you think he does the right thing. don't you think that the media in this country has lost all perspective? >> not just the media, i think there are large swathes of the american people who have lost their minds. >> sean: that's true. it's become the media is fueling this crazy hysteria. >> the mainstream media, maine network news, they kind of collaborated in fueling the beast of donald trump.
when he first ran, they started by saying he was a joke. then they realized he was getting -- they kept fueling, fueling, fueling, they never imagined he might actually win. he was out there running around america, galvanizing and resonating with the american people in middle america. way away from the two coasts. then came the moment when the american media said we've got to kill this guy off. this is out of control. dr. frankenstein, it was too late. the beast they helped create cannot be killed off and he won the presidency. what i don't like about what is going on now is there is an absolute frenzy, to delegitimiz delegitimize, sabotage and destroy the trump presidency before it has even started. i think that is un-american, i do not think it is a patriotic thing that they are doing. i think it is partisan. driven by "the new york times" "
and i think the journalists who work best, cnn always tried to be i know your view about cnn but there are good people there. i think they have got to be -- look at what they are doing her here. or it is incredibly partisan, nakedly abusive treatment of a new president. i think i'm afraid -- this russian scandal, when you play -- they are journalist who i completely respect, when you play them talking about this being the new watergate, pearl harbor, 9/11. the biggest scandals sense so on, this is a wildly exaggerated view as the facts currently stand. the facts are, there is nothing right now to link donald trump to any collusion with anyone from russia in relation to the american election.
>> sean: piers, you have laid out an extraordinary powerful indictment against journalism and the media in this country. let me ask you a follow-up question. we had -- it's not really competitive but cnn, when wikileaks revealed the level of collusion with the news media and hillary clinton's campaign, i am sure even you are shocked and surprised that it ran so deep on so many levels. how corrupt that is. >> look, i think most people at cnn are thoroughly decent journalist. i respect their integrity. when i saw that behavior, deliberately showing questions to the clinton campaign. i was shocked by that. "the new york times" in the middle of the campaign, 11 different pieces -- all pieces
on donald trump were negative. what it told me was it you a very partisan paper, masquerading as a paper of record. the bombshell by "the new york times" ," when you actually read it, it makes itself. it has nothing to link donald trump -- it's personallyy reasonable, when a national security advisor resigns like general flynn, for journalist to do their job and go off of that. donald trump should answer questions from cnn and others at press conferences. it's reasonable to go after the story, it's not reasonable to make everybody believe this is armageddon, trump is in there with putin. he has fixed the election and so on. >> sean: let me bring in joe digenova. joe, let me just ask a very simple question.
go through from a legal aspect of the intelligence leaks that are going on here. how it would violate the espionage act, 18 u.s. code 798 which we will get into in more detail. tell me what is going on with these intelligence leaks which we know are illegal and is at the bigger story? >> it is now clear from published information that people who had authorized access to signaled intelligence under the espionage act, cryptographic intelligence, telephone intercepts, wiretaps, have given that information in violation of the law to news organizations and other parties who are not authorizedo receive them. those disclosures by people who got the information lawfully are crimes. they are felonies, under the espionage act. the attorney general should
immediately impanel a grand jury and start defeating the limited number of people who have lawful access to these telephone intercepts. that number of people is quite small and they can start issuing subpoenas to those people, have them interviewed by the fbi, put them in the grand jury and i can assure you, with the reasonable prosecutor -- you can find out who disclosed this information by looking at their telephone records, their emails, and everything else related to how they communicate with third parties. >> sean: you have no doubt, felonies were committed. no doubt the intelligence community or a few members within the intelligence community have done this on purpose, on numerous times, conversations with mexico, australia for example and in this particular case. you think it will be fairly easy to discover who it was?
>> yes, with the use of a grand jury which was not used in the hillary clinton email service case. you can find out as much information as you need to do about this because what is happening here is a coup d'état. this is designed not to just delegitimize president trump but to create the atmospheric foreign impeachment and for other legal stratagems to destroy his presidency. if the attorney general thinks about this for about 5 minutes, there will be a grand jury at work, sure as the sun will rise tomorrow. >> sean: after think both of you, very powerful statements. piers, joe, thank you very much for being with us. coming up next on "hannity." >> i think it's very, very unfair what has happened to general flynn, how he was treated, the documents and papers that were illegally --
illegally -- leaked. very, very unfair. >> sean: president trump talking about these illegal leaks that forced mike flynn to resign. up next, devon nunez, he has a committee that looks into the spirit dr. gorka, he is under fire, let's do more. add one a day 50+ a complete multi-vitamin with 100% daily value of more than 15 key nutrients. one a day 50+. bounty is more absorbent,mom" per roll so the roll can last 50% longer than the leading ordinary brand. so you get more "life" per roll. bounty, the quicker picker upper withevery late night...g... and moment away... with every click...call...punch... and paycheck... you've earned your medicare.

>> good evening, live from america's newsroom headquarters, labor troubles for president trump. earlier today, andrew puzder withdrew as nominee for labor secretary. this came one day before his scheduled confirmation hearing. democrats and even some republicans had raised concerns about his failure to pay taxes for five years on a former housekeeper who was not authorized to work here in the u.s. no word yet on the new possible nominee. another setback for michael flynn, just two days after resigning due to reports of contacts with the russian diplomat, the defense intelligence agency has a suspended his access to classified information pending a review. senate democrats are calling for an independent special counsel to look at other possible ties. now, back to "hannity" ."
>> michael flynn, general flynn as a wonderful man. he's been treated very, very unfairly by the media. the fake media in many cases. i think it is really a sad thing that he was treated so badly. in addition to that, from intelligence papers are being leaked, things are being leaked. it's criminal action, and it has been going on for a long time, before me. but now it is really going on. people are trying to cover up for a terrible loss that the democrats had under hillary clinton. i think it is very, very unfair what has happened to general flynn, the way he was treated and that the documents and papers that were illegally -- i stress that -- illegally leaked. very, very unfair. >> sean: that was president trump earlier today at
the white house. talking about mike flynn's resignation and the leaks coming from intelligence agencies. prior to the press conference, trump tweeted... the real scandal here is the classified information, illegally given out by intelligence, like candy. very un-american. joining us now, devin nunes is with us. good to see you again, isn't it a crime in fact to leak this information? isn't it in violation of the espionage act? >> there could have been multiple crimes here committed to, sean, but for sure. leaking classified information is punishable by law. it needs to be looked into by the appropriate agencies, our committee is going to be requested, to try to bring these perpetrators accountable and hold them under the law. >> sean: i want to go back, to
this piece. in the waning days of the administration. the obama administration expanded the power of the national security agency to share globally intercepted personnel communications with the government's 16 other intelligence agencies before applying privacy protections. does that mean the list of potential leakers is that much bigger or not? >> if that is the case, we were never notified of that at the house intelligence committee. what i will say is that it's not just about what leaked, the transcripts that leaked on general flynn, the transcripts that donald trump talking to the mexican president, the australian prime minister, those also leaked. this is a state here that is falling apart and it is totally unacceptable for anyone within government to be doing this. i think most of this is probably from people who are in the old administration.
but there still could be some people that have burrowed in and are providing classified information to the media. >> sean: is clearly a violation of law, is it not? is this not the type of thing that if you have a intelligence people, illegally intercepting phone calls of americans, that's illegal. if, in fact, they wanted to get the intel or hack into the phone of general flynn, wouldn't they have to get a court subpoena to do so? >> that is correct. i am not aware that they did that. my guess is that the intelligence agencies did not do this. what i am assuming is is this was picked up as they were tracking someone else. if that is the case, that would have had to go up to the highest levels of the obama administration to get approval to unmask who that person is. in this case, it was general flynn.
then if you really look at these leaks, sean, it looks like these original leaks that were leaked to the media happened in the beginning of january. that would mean it would have to come from the administration. >> sean: would you recommend the attorney general convene a grand jury to get to the bottom of this? >> the first thing that has to happen is the fbi needs to do a full investigation of this and trying track down these leakers. >> sean: joining us now with more reaction is steve king, he said what happened to mike flynn was a political assassination. congressman, thank you for being here. explain what you mean. >> incorporated you for having me on. it looks like it was strategic, it was unfolded and kind of synchronized. that the intel that was gathered, perhaps within the fbi, someone within the fbi. or other components of the
intelligence agency and strategically leaked to do maximum damage to mike flynn. we know the long knives had come out for him, this looks like a strategic plan. i'm not excusing the part that was miscommunications and dishonesty but that was between president trump, vice president pence and mike flynn. i was specifically saying that the federal statute that is violated is 18 usc 798, makes it clear that it is a felony, ten years and of penitentiary for communicating in a classified information that is retrieved through our signal intelligence communications. >> sean: i have that in front of me, the code, whoever knowingly and willfully communicates, transmits or otherwise makes available to an unauthorized persons or uses in any manner or for the benefit of
any foreign government to the detriment of the united states -- that's what the code says. to have any doubt crimes were committed here? >> no doubt. i agree with devin nunes, if it was obtained through a warrant, and there is no way that it that information could come out, now we have someone who is either embedded within the fbi or another component of the intelligence community that it willfully leaked this to "the new york times" and "the washington post" ." now we have a nation of leftists that are hyperventilating over actually now are rumors. we do not have the transcripts of those telephone calls or a single phrase, we have these long stories that are coming out and now the democrats have created an entire narrative about this. they're either trying to get the whole nation wrapped up in this but they were never married
about hillary clinton's real-time highly classified information, while she was secretary of state. >> sean: we always appreciate you being with us. coming up tonight, dr. sebastian gorka weighs in on u.s. russian relations and also, later tonight... >> under your leadership, i believe we can reverse the radical tide of radical islam. >> sean: history in the making making, ari fleischer and steve hilton will join us. kevin mccarthy, all on this busy newsnight of "hannity" ." y. y. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus had less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both.

that is the president's own words. dear member he gave a press conference, where someone asked him the question about you and putin and so on and so forth and he was super blunt. he said i would like to be able to work with vladimir putin. i do not think it's going to happen, and if it doesn't, so be it. but there are of course some common interests. they have suffered from jihadist terrorism as have we. they were not stopped by the obama administration from invading another country. how are u.s. investor now has categorically attacked that aggression, that occupation. it's ironic that the last administration that whispered to have their own reset button, secretary clinton approved the sale of our uranium to russia. and they are not the ones that created the problem but we are? i have learned one thing in the
last three and a half weeks, sean. 80% of what you read in the media is 10180 degrees out of whack with reality. >> sean: coming up next, tonight, here on "hannity." >> i believe we can reverse the rising tide of radical islam. >> sean: praising donald trump and his leadership during a press conference today, edge minette and yahoo. it later tonight, bad news for obamacare, they will pull out of the exchanges in 2018. obamacare is in a death spiral. when will this law finally be repealed? we will ask kevin mccarthy about that and more, tonight, straight ahead.

many others, israel stands with you. and i stand with you. there is no greater supporter of the jewish people and the jewish state and president donald trump. i think we should put that to rest. >> sean: here now with reaction, ari fleischer, steve hilton is back with us. let me start here. you could see the friendliness, the relationship that goes back so far, dramatic shift from the last eight years. it certainly and also they both are very strong in their criticism of radical islam. here's what stood out to me. donald trump, one state, to state, then he said we can do something much bigger. then i put that together, what the prime minister said, for the first time in his life in arab countries in the region do not see israel increasingly as anything other than an ally and
that this is a historic opportunity. here's my interpretation of tha that. based on the comments of the egyptian president, and the jordanians and the new emerging relationship with saudi arabia, if you add in the grits, could there be a coalition to stop iranian -- the threat of a nuclear armed iran? is that what they are both indicating? >> you nailed it. that's exactly right. that's profound. everyone wants to talk about personnel, this is why there is no more important personnel than the president himself. under president obama, which was how do we make life better for iran? we know of a policy of how do we make life better for america in the middle east? standing by our best ally, israel. and recognizing the great strategic change underway, the three alliance of sunni arabs,
jordan, bahrain, the uae, along with israel. against iran. that's the profound difference. it's a fundamental, wonderful change in the middle east. >> sean: i agree steve, complete with ari. it was historic, deep, profound. the news conference today. israel has created new alliances that have never existed before with the saudi's, jordanians, egyptians, if you add the u.s. to the equation, and you add the u.k. to the equation, you now have a coalition to defeat what i think is the number one state sponsor of terror that burns the israeli flag, the u.s. flag, chance's death to israel and america, the iranian mollusks. >> i think it's so exciting, ari is right. it's so refreshing, you have a president who is so clearly and
strongly and warmly committed to israel, he is committed to move beyond the failed approaches of the past. and really shake things up. one of the things i really hate about the way the insiders and experts criticize trump as they say well, he's not following protocol and doing the diplomatic stuff. he's doing his own thing. that's exactly what we need. the old way of doing things have not worked. >> sean: so deep. really profound. one state, two state, or bigger and better. an opportunity. i think ari, you have been around a long time, i cannot think of a better time than now to actually create a broad coalition that could really lead to a lasting peace in the middle east. that would also mean u.s. involvement there. i know every american would prefer that. >> a recognition that the arab nations really do not have palestinians as their first
number one issue the way the foreign policy establishment in washington has sought they have had for decades. they have their own survival as the number one issue. in that sense, they are working with israel because they see the threat coming from iran. if we can isolate iran, diminish them, because we have the shiite alliance, involving iran, syria, and hezbollah. we can now have a different coalition. we are doing it because we are doing what is principally right for america, which is to stand with israel. to stop this nonsense. we need support, we need to support our allies. it's a welcome sign of change in washington. >> sean: steve, i would argue that the only world leader that had moral clarity and understood the real nature of the threat of radical islam -- he stood alone, was the prime minister. now he has a staunch ally that
agrees and it supports everything he says. we may look back at this moment as the starting point potentially for a longer and lasting peace, hopefully in the middle east. quick programming note, the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyahu will join us and coming up next, tonight, on "hannity." >> obama obamacare is a total d complete disaster. >> sean: the president promising obamacare will be repealed, replaced and better. pulling out of the exchanges in 2018, the disastrous health care law is now in a death spiral. we will ask kevin mccarthy and play some of your hotline calls to me. and our question of the day, straightwi ahead. (team sing) safelite repair, safelite replace.
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity," president trump promised to repeal and replace obamacare. the law is a disaster. humana announced they will pull out of the exchanges in 2018 and the ceo of aetna said that the obamacare law is in a death spiral. congressman, i've been critical of the speed by which congress has not moved on obamacare.
for eight years, you said repeal and replace. i've not seen a consensus plan to replace it yet and i keep reading that some republicans want to repair it and not repeal it. can you tell me please that is not true? >> that's definitely not true. we are moving forward. we just now have put in place the health and human service secretary tom price. he just got put in last week, 2:00 in the morning. he is taking his first action, he will be in our conference tomorrow, for tomorrow we will roll out to our conference the plan -- we have before, where it is being scored. >> sean: there's a consensus plan that you have? >> sean, we've always had a plan. health savings accounts, we go through, we have gone through our plan time and again.
tax credits, you go into the marketplace. high risk pools, to be able to save. >> sean: what i've been reading, we are going to do it in the beginning of the year. then we will do it by the spring. then sometime in the summer. and by the end of the year. >> next month. next month. listen. we were sworn in january 3rd, the first thing you have to have happened, the aca -- obamacare when it was put into power, it gave 1400 pages of power to the health and human service secretary. you don't want to go in and repeal and replace it without having the secretary in place. secondly, the president was not sworn in until the 20th. we want to work hand in hand together with president trump. we walked them through all of i it. we've gone 200 day plans, he is with us on this all the way through, we've got the plan put forth. we are not like the democrats, no one has seen it.
we have both, some markups in energy and commerce. >> sean: the president seems to be going through his checklist and keeping his promises, the prime minister, i loved what he did today. i thought it was historic. i will run through a list. one is extreme vetting, i know where you stand on originalist. his economic plan, repatriation, seven brackets to three. education setback to the the states, building the wall, is congress in sync with all of that agenda, do you think? will that happen this year? >> yes. you've got understand all of that is already moving in place. let me explain why it is moving in the order in which it is moving. we have started taking up congressional review act, going
after regulation. do you realize we have just made history -- if you go back in american history, only one congressional review act has been signed into law. the president is already doubling it this year where he has signed two in just this week alone. that is changing the forefront. going forward, now we are going to repeal obamacare and replace it. that changes and it repeals great amount of tax, $8 trillion. the baseline which allows us to broaden how far we can go on the tax code which allows us to lower the tax rate -- >> sean: i've been very critical, this is music to my ears. if you had energy independence, i forgot that part of the agend agenda. then this country is going to be infinitely better off in my opinion. if that is all, all of those things done in a year, i think the country will be safer, more secure, and i believe the
economy will turn around. we'll get more people out of poverty. a huge tax cut getting rid of obamacare. so i appreciate you being honest. too many people have said may be at the end of the year, maybe next year. >> no, we cannot weight. weight. it's all happening together, the country is continuing to grow. >> sean: at the end of that 200 days, that would be a mighty huge accomplishment. when they come back, we need your help. a question of the day and we will be playing maybe your voice mail message that you left for me on the "hannity" hotline, straight ahead. some call them the best of the best.
