7:00 pm
done. in that way he said he could best honor the people who he served. >> greg: "hannity" is up next. >> sean: , thanks to our friends on "the five" ." robert muller, he has yet another democratic donor to his investigative team. they are now carrying out what is a political witch hunt. we will explain why it needs to be shut down. a hannity special investigation. also, former obama aides in congress, in the cross hairs over unmasking. sarah carter has all the details. her brand-new explosive report about the former obama national security advisor ben rhodes being now a person of interest in a congressional probe. plus, gregg jarrett, jay secula
7:01 pm
secular, sarah huckabee sanders, lou dobbs, all here with reaction. but first, we have a really important opening monologue. all right, for months, the establishment destroyed trumped media and democrats have been hysterical, breathless, pushing all kinds of conspiracy theories. they are hoping and praying that there would be the smoking gun on trump and collusion and russia. so far, they have not found anything solid. it is mostly wild accusations and innuendo. while they are obsessing over russia, every single second of the day, the establishment media, the left, have been completely ignoring what we are telling you on this program. that is the construction of one of the biggest political witch hunt in the history of this country. i am now talking about the special counsel, robert mueller, and his massive conflicts of interest, and frankly inexcusable investigative creep. it is time for mueller's
7:02 pm
political crusade to be shut down once and for all. it is time for congress, republicans in particular, to reassert their authority and start investigating actual crimes and actual collusion. this is why it is important. as we have been telling you, robert mueller, he has several huge, massive conflict of interest. as my friend and colleague gregg jarrett pointed out, mueller's relationship with the former fbi director, james comey, the star witness of the case, could be a violation of not one, but two laws. earlier this week, congressman jim franks, called for mueller to resign. then there is the fact that because mueller was appointed to special counsel, before hand he interviewed with president trump for fbi director. he should not have taken that interview if he knew he was going to be considered as special counsel. from there, it only gets worse.
7:03 pm
mueller has now assembled what is shaping up to be a democratic hit squad that has donated thousands and thousands of dollars to democrats, including hillary clinton and barack obama. now, this is stunning. eight of the 16 members that mueller has hired, a massive team, have made political donations to democrats. does that sound fair, impartial? the other eight, they haven't donated at all. are we really to believe that mueller could not find nonpartisan people who have not openly supported democrats? let's name some names. we're going to show you exactly who these investigators are, how much they have donated. former watergate prosecutor, he has donated over $30,000 to democrats over the past 30 years, that includes giving money to hillary clinton and barack obama. she has dished out over $9,000
7:04 pm
to the democrats. get this, this is the biggest conflict. she has even done legal work for the clinton foundation. how does that not immediately disqualify her from working for the special counsel? then there is andrew wiseman, his donation has given $4,000 to both clinton and obama, and it is argued that he has serious ethical concerns. he has donated $3700 to the democrats. goldstein, he gave the democrats 300. $486 to democrats including obama. and $200 to hillary clinton. how is this is any of this acc?
7:05 pm
if the tables were turned, and these people were investigating a democrat, there would be a national average. it is time to end the political witch hunt. the deputy attorney general, rod rosenstein, he has an obligation to shut this down. congress, they need to make sure it stays that way. otherwise, they are endorsing a two-tiered justice system, one that is unfair, unethical, and clearly has political motivations and political factors. also tonight, our other massive breaking news story, that is the depth of the obama administration unmasking, and their scandal is now coming into focus tonight. it should concern deeply every single one of you watching., sarah carter will be with us in a few minutes. she is reporting that former national security advisor ben rhodes is now a person of
7:06 pm
interest in the house intelligence committee's investigation. ben rhodes, the latest obama aid that is facing scrutiny. congress is also looking for more information on unmasking. remember susan rice, samantha power, the hills john solomon reported that the former director of national intelligence, james clapper, made it easier for officials in the executive branch to unmask members of congress and their staffers. by the way, big surprise, james clapper, now a contributor for the fake news network. news today, james comey, he is writing a book that will be released in the spring. i told you this was going to happen months ago. let's go as one or wolf would say, to the videotape. speak out what did i say the day after he got fired. comey will get a multimillion dollar deal, a movie, a miniseries, primetime special, diane sawyer, and probably an
7:07 pm
msnbc contributor ship. now you have klapper over at the fake news network. he is apparently trying to take down the present, and to do that, this has become a lucrative profession. if you make it easier to unmask americans, i guess you get hired by fake news cnn. you gather information that you leak to "the new york times," government information, classified information, potentially break the law, you get a huge book deal. we have been calling for real crimes, real collusion to be investigated, the house republicans, you need to do your job. finally, the house judiciary committee they are now calling for the second special counsel to be appointed to investigate hillary clinton, james comey, loretta lynch, things we have been asking for. as we sat, congress should not stop there. it is time to use their subpoena power and have people now testify under oath. that should include, top clinton campaign officials, john podesta, put them under
7:08 pm
oath. did they know about ukraine and collusion, were they given any information? also, debbie wasserman shultz, if she ever going to explain why she kept paying her i.t. staffer while under federal investigation for double billing and much more? and james comey, and loretta lynch, remember comey testified that loretta lynch pressured him to call the clinton email investigation a matter. and it loretta lynch, of course, met with bill clinton on a tarmac, totally inappropriate pit did did the former attorney general obstruct justice? and hillary clinton, she needs to question answers about her email scandal. uranium one. why did she delete 33,000 emails? why did she acid wash and bleach bit hard drives? why did she in fact, according to reports, smashed devices with hammers, and have her staff do it, and send devices to the fbi
7:09 pm
that did not have sim cards in it. you give vladimir putin up to 20% of our uranium, the foundational material for nuclear weapons? this is important for this reason, if we care about justice, and the rule of law in this country, this all needs to happen. i know the mainstream media is ignoring it, we will not. you deserve to have answers, because you have been lied to. real crimes, real evidence is now being ignored, and as you know, we are not, i am not going to stop asking questions. i will not stop demanding answers until we get the truth. if the media and the department of justice and congress don't want to act, we will continue to do their job until they do do their job. and finally come up since the mainstream media won't talk about it, take a look at the side of your screen. they won't mention the success. look at the economy. it has been roaring under president trump. dow jones closed about 22,000.
7:10 pm
six day in a row record. on employment, all-time lows in the modern era. obama regulations got it. gone, goodbye. gdp, no one protected even 3% growth, we are very close, 2.6%. fox con pledged jobs that will lead toward energy independence. that's what we should focus on pure you will never hear it from the establishment fake news media. with reaction, sarah carter, president trump's attorney, jay sekulow. sarah, let's start with your story, ben rhodes. >> it keeps expanding, sean. what we have seen, first, it was susan rice. national security advisor susan rice. then we saw ambassador at samantha power. then it became cia director john brennan. now, it has expanded to ben
7:11 pm
rhodes, who worked closely with obama and susan rice. this is important. what they are asking for is the full year, from january 2016 up until january 20th 2017, they want to know how many times ben rhodes unmask americans, what was he looking at, and for what purpose, and why. if it wasn't dealing with specific national security issues, that becomes a very serious problem, and it also shows what they have been discovering, apparently and allegedly, that they weren't just looking at this national security -- >> sean: if they eased those rules. >> what we have seen since 2011, a 320% increase in unmasking. specifically after the election, that increased exponentially. the increased exponentially without explanation.
7:12 pm
remember, when those rules were relaxed, they could basically sign off. they did not have to file 80 pages like an analyst would at the cia. it was just a need to know. >> sean: i have to ask you about robert mueller. you have pointed out the laws, and congressman frank has picked up on real laws that he is breaking if he stays in that position. are these felony, misdemeanors or what? >> you basically get fired. if you have a conflict of interest, you shall not serve. it is mandatory and language. it is not optional, or discretionary. in my columns, as i pointed out the conflict of interest, i have it argued that there should be no special prosecutor, instead it is robert mueller who is the wrong special prosecutor. because of his close
7:13 pm
relationship with comey. it is even worse than that. mueller's boss, rod rosenstein, he also has a disqualifying conflict of interest, because he too is a witness in a case having offered the memo and the firing of james comey. neither of these individuals will have any respect for the law, they are ignoring it deliberately. finally now, some are saying this man should resign and i think it is gaining strength. >> sean: let me ask big picture stuff if i can. i know your position, you probably don't want to talk about specifics. but, if i mention ukraine, and uranium one, and deleting emails, and bleach bit, and hammer smashing, and destroying, in the case of debbie wasserman shultz, hard drives, and unmasking, and leaking intelligence, and comey, the general counsel of the fbi, wow. how is it that it is not being
7:14 pm
discussed in many places besides here? >> hopefully it's not being discussed because it is being thoroughly investigated by the federal bureau of investigation and the department of justice. you can be hopeful on that. i can't say that that is happening, i have no knowledge of that. but, if you look at the whole scenario, you just laid out, especially now with the unmasking situation, what is the justification that is going to be put forward by the previous administration for having samantha powers, the u.n. ambassador having access to unmasking? there is no possible justification for this. and what is the justification for a 360% increase in the number of american citizens who are unmasked? what is the justification for the change in the rules that were in existence for decades? what was the justification for the change of the rules of sharing information to other agencies, going from three to 17. days before the obama
7:15 pm
administration leaves office. what is the justification for any of this? if you look at it rationally, legally, and you look at what is happening here, there is a major play with the national security apparatus that was exposing americans to surveillance as what it appears to be here. for justification for this, i think they will be hard-pressed to put one fourth. >> sean: stay right there, we will have more with sarah, greg, jake. the woman who has the toughest job in america will join us, we will tell you who straight ahea ahead.

7:18 pm
7:19 pm
>> sean: welcome back to "hannity," as we continue now with sarah carter, jay sekulow and gregg jarrett. this is slowly been coming out, we have unmasking, real crimes being committed, 125 leaks -- intelligence leaks and 126 days. that is abuse of the power we give the intelligence committee. it puts everyone's freedoms, fourth amendment constitutional rights and jeopardy. how much further is this going to go? are we going to discover a systematic effort to violate the constitutional rights of americans so they can spy on political opponents in a
7:20 pm
political season? eye is that where this is heade headed? >> i certainly hope that the committee makes this public as much as they can. what they're looking for, the correlation between what was unmasked and what was leaks. i think when that is discovered, and that is revealed, if that proves to be true, it is going to answer a lot of questions. is going to answer a lot of questions as to whether our intelligence community and our intelligence apparatus was being used for political espionage, and that is the question that people want answered. >> sean: the 99% of our intelligence community that risks their lives for us, they are great, but if we use those tools against americans, that is a foundation for a police state. they are spying on you and you don't have a constitutional fourth minute rights. jay, let me ask, more and more people are coming out to me saying, you talk about all these other issues, how is it possible that we don't know if they are being investigated.
7:21 pm
if i turn on another channel or read a newspaper, all i hear about is russia. how did we get to this place? >> i think what has happened is, if you look at what has taken place within the intelligence community, 99% of the people do a fantastic job, but it doesn't take even 1%, it only takes a couple of bad actors to put the national security apparatus at risk. as you look at renewals of various laws that impact surveillance, and the concerns that members of congress are racing, i think the constitutional republicans are put at risk when you take this laissez-faire attitude with the normal procedures put in place in order to do this. that is the irony. mentioned earlier, 80 pages of documents needed to fill out an order to do this, then it became a stroke of a pen. that is not the way the system is set up to operate, that is not the way the constitution operates. >> sean: i went to a list of names, and the various scandals, ukraine, uranium one, deleting
7:22 pm
emails, obstruction of justice, debbie wasserman shultz, and i want all of them put under oath, they should be. where are the republicans? >> the republicans are finally making a move. the house judiciary committee sent a stern letter to the department of justice demanding a second special counsel be appointed to investigate comey, loretta lynch, some at the powers, the list goes on and on. >> sean: how about hillary clinton! that she get away with uranium one? does she get away with smashing hard drives and bleach bit? >> millions of documents that were apparently hidden by hillary clinton and not turned over pursuant to a subpoena. the content of these documents, my goodness. and one of them, she gets a million dollars from a telecom executive who want something in
7:23 pm
return. that is called pay to play. that is a crime if proven. >> sean: my last question, we never have enough time, do you think i will be proven right on the scandals versus the the ony russian story? >> i think so. there have been years of investigation and the story, zero. >> we can't say this definitively, but if the fbi still has the clinton foundation under investigation, allegedly, if all of the things are coming to pass are true, then you may just be right, sean. >> sean: uranium one is the big issue, but they are all big. jay, do you think i will be proven right? >> i think you will. it sounds like in the next coming days there will be an announcement for the attorney general regarding leaks. that could be a big issue, we have speculation on who may be involved, but if it proves to be true, it may be the biggest situation that the country has
7:24 pm
faced on a national security breach and our lifetime. >> sean: thank you, all. it this is big for supporting the country. herman mccain is coming up next, and the woman who has the toughest job in the country, straight ahead. better than the leading branded pill, which didn't get me to my goal. lowers my a1c better than the leading branded injectable. the one i used to take. victoza® lowers blood sugar it's or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2,

>> live from america's news has quarters i am jackie yvonne is in new york. voter turnout numbers from venezuela's controversial vote over the weekend were reportedly manipulated. on sunday, voters approved the plan to give the ruling body the ability to essentially override every branch of the government and rewrite the country's constitution. protesters have been demonstrate in for months now, claiming the move would give too much power to president nicolas maduro and the socialist party. president maduro says a new assembly will delay their first meeting due to ongoing violence. two u.s. service members killed in a suicide bombing attack on a nato convoy. the attack happened in southern

7:30 pm
identity. do they have to count on trillion dollars in savings, how important is it for them to go back to the drawing board and do their job? >> incredibly. they can walk and chew gum at the same time. they can work on two critical issues at the same time. mick mulvaney is exactly right. they have to get this done. now, it was john mccain that stabbed america in the back, but all of the republicans are going to take the fall for it. that is simply not fair. they need to go back and retool and try this again. replacement, simplification and reform, that is the other critical laws. they pull those two off, the american people will forget about that failure to hit a grand slam, the first time around but they will not forget the republicans couldn't even
7:31 pm
get to first base. >> sean: my next question, lindsey graham is proposing this idea. on the surface, people like yourself and i would say, what a great idea. federalism. send it back to the states, let them decide it. vermont want to have a single-payer, vermont has a single-payer. california, who cares what they do, i will never live there. ever. i am not paying their state income tax. but here's the point, the problem is, they are not going to repeal all of the obama era regulations, and why do i suspect, herman, i don't know why i am so suspicious, that they are going to overspend like they always do, and we are still going to end up paying more western mark >> yep. the reason, sean, is that when the democrats say they want to work with republicans, they now say they want to work with republicans to fix obamacare, obamacare can't be fixed. when the democrats talk about,
7:32 pm
they want to work with republicans, even if it does go back to the states, that is not the issue. they are saying, if you do it our way, and you keep a lot of the controls in that we put on the american people, we might vote with you, so i would say as to the republicans, don't be fooled by another trojan horse that the democrats are trying to push on you because you couldn't get it across the finish line for that first time around. they say they want to work with republicans, but if you look at the history the only way they work with republicans is when they are able to get some of their control over the people and their taxes. >> sean: it's time for them to get there you know what together. get their act together. do your job. this is pathetic. grow up, and don't go on vacation until you do your job. by the way, subject yourself to the same laws that use subject americans to.
7:33 pm
it's on believable. >> i believe that america, the american people would applaud if president trump does not allow them to get special subsidies relative to health care until they fix it for everybody. that would be a hip hip hooray for and by the american people. >> sean: i wish he would go to the white house. herman cain, good to see you. that is a man that has ideas, things out-of-the-box, that represents conservative views. health savings account, the penny plan, building a wall, energy independence, where is that, republican party? when we come back, she has the toughest job in america. we will tell you what it is nex next.

when we see people, we see their hunger. their courage. we see their dreams. we see the things that built our nation. and we wonder, what would happen if everyone had equal access to education?
7:37 pm
what would they discover? what new worlds would they build? that's why we built a university for people. not for profit. >> sean: >> if you want to talr about a relationship with russia, look no further than mcclinton. we talked time and time again, the distinction directly. you want to create an a narrate that does not exist. it often takes place by the news media. >> sean: those were a few highlights from the day in the life of the white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders, who has the toughest job in washington, probably america. earlier today, she was joined at the podium by senior policy advisor stephen miller. he faced off against fake news cnn's jim acosta.
7:38 pm
this is awesome, wants this. >> jim, i appreciate your speech, so let's about this. in 1970, wheeler and 300,000 people a year, without violating or not violating the statute of liberty law of the land? and 1990s, when it was half a million a year, was it violating or not violating the liberty law of the land. tell me what years meet jim acosta's definition of the statute of liberty home off the land. do you at cnn really not know the difference between green card policy and immigration. i am shocked at your statement, that you think the only people from great britain and australia would know english. it actually, it reveals your cosmopolitan bias to a shocking degree. >> it seems as if you are trying to engineer the racial and ethnic flow of people into this country this country. >> that is one of the most
7:39 pm
races, insulting, ignorant, and foolish things you have ever said. >> sean: wow. fighting back, finally. earlier tonight, we spoke with health secretary sarah huckabee sanders. sarah, great to see you, i really do believe, we do a pretty good job of calling out the lies, misinformation, lack of priorities, absolute bias and ideology of the media. you are with them every single day. i don't know how you do this job, you've got to help us out. >> you think i have one of the toughest jobs in america, i think i have one of the most fun jobs in america. i get to work for the president of the united states prayed he has had an incredible first six months in office, he is going to have an incredible seven and a half years, it is an honor and a privilege to come out and share his message with the american people every day. i am excited to be here and be part of his team. >> sean: i want to ask you this, lately, the white house,
7:40 pm
yourself, steve miller, sebastian gorka, kellyanne conway, you seem willing to go out and say, we are going to call you out on air to your face. i doubt cnn is going to run the exchange with stephen miller today. speak out they may run an edited version, but my guess it isn't the one where stephen miller puts him in his place. >> sean: he really does. at any point do you get frustrated. i have been in talk radio for 30 years, and there are times i met some people trying to get under your skin, i have built up immunities do you ever find yourself getting frustrated up there? >> every once in a while, of course there is a certain level of frustration. look, i know the american people, they did a poll not too long ago, they care about health care, they care about jobs, the economy, immigration. they don't care about russia. they don't care about who has a job in the white house. they care about who has a job at their house. those are the issues they were like for us to be able to talk about, and fortunately, we have a roomful of people that refuses
7:41 pm
to ask questions that america cares about. it is more about tv star moment, more about sound bites for evening news, and i think that is a sad disservice that some in the media are doing for the american people. hopefully, we get to come out and be on shows like yours, and we get to respond. that is one of the reasons you have seen us fight back a little bit stronger, because it is important for us to get the message out there, but it is also important for us to push back on some of the ridiculous bias we get from the media. >> sean: it seems like the miss issue is palace intrigue, or they want to talk about russia, russia. what do you want the american people, after 11 months, nonstop covered, no evidence of collusion, but there is real evidence with ukraine, you pointed that out yesterday, what do you want the american people to know about what they're media is telling them? >> i think one of the biggest things that you see is, you have a media that is incredibly obsessed with the idea of russia. i think that is in large part because they are trying to
7:42 pm
justify the last 11 months that they have wasted talking about it. they know that there is nothing there, i think they see that day after day after day. they are looking for a way to justify their time and effort that they have spent wasting away on this topic. they ought to be focused on the things that they administer ration is actually doing. the dow hit 22,000 today, that is huge. unemployment is at the lowest it has been in 16 years. the economy is on the right track, they should be talking about the spirit they should be so dreading that. they should be talking about the successes of this president, and they refused to do so because they were wrong in november, and they have been wrong every day since. >> sean: i was very glad, because one of the things i pointed out in this program, we did put up some of the president successes on air, only a small list. but we will also put the full list on the air, i don't see anybody else in the media doing that. with all of the issue, they only want to talk about russia, but here we have a dnc operative inside the ukraine embassy, with ukrainian ambassador, a real
7:43 pm
rush of conspiracy, uranium one, sign off on a deal, 145 million in kickbacks then we've got emails, acid washing bleach bit, destroying and sending devices without sin cards. and then you have comey leaking information, the general counsel leaking information, you got debbie wasserman shultz, loretta lynch, unmasking, intel leaks, i can't even list them all. do you think all of those issues the media is ignoring, should they be investigating them equally, and should the republicans be doing more on those? >> absolutely, they should. we've got a situation where we have a president who is focused on trying to accomplish the things he campaigned on. instead, the media constantly wants to detract from that, take away from that, if they want a real story about collusion, a
7:44 pm
real story about illegal activity and inappropriate activity, there is plenty of material, you just listed all off. if that is what they're looking for, there are a lot of things i can go after and investigate, and they can do stories on. they are not going to find them here, but they certainly should be looking at the list you just rattled off. >> sean: am i correct, is the president correct, there is a lot of fake news today? >> absolutely. >> sean: some of the fake news in that room every day with the people that you have to do with? >> it actually is. i'm not going to name names, but i think the american people are certainly smart enough to figure out. i think that is the reason that donald trump are sitting in the white house, they were wrong then and they are wrong i received today. you know, i think america is much smarter than the media gives them credit for. i think it is certainly working to our advantage.
7:45 pm
>> sean: sarah, i think you have the patience of job. >> i have three preschoolers. >> sean: you said that at the podium, which i thought was great. all right, you're doing great. appreciate you being with us and sharing what it is like up there every day. >> absolutely, thanks so much, sean. >> sean: coming up, the president announced his support for a merit-based immigration system here we will check in with fox business anchor lou dobbs.
