set your dvrs. never miss an episode of "the five." why would you do that anyway? "hannity" is up next. ♪ >> sean: many thanks to all our friends on "the five." a fox news alert. welcome to "hannity." we are following three major news stories. liberals, the destroy-trump-media. hyperventilating over news, paul manafort's home was raided in the early morning hours by the fbi. back in july. we will expose the massive double standard and we will alsi tell you tonight what paul manafort's huge mistake was. the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell, winding to constituents and blaming president trump and his excessive expectations for his repeated failures. tonight i have a message for the weak, spineless senate majority leader senator mitch mcconnell. and president trump and his administration refused to back
down in this nuclear standoff that continues tonight with north korea. the rogue regime issues it, saying pyongyang is considering firing four missiles at. he's calling president trump's fire and fury comments a load of nonsense. really? good luck betting on that.ow tonight it's very important breaking news monologue starts right here, right now. the destroy-trump-media, the democrats, they are so over the moon, the special counsel and conflicted robert mueller going after earlier today, we learned that the fbi conducted a predawn raid at manafort's home back in july. the left-wing partisan press is foaming at the mouth. hyperventilating, jumping to conclusions, running with wild innuendos.ou as it turns out, paul manafort he did make a major, major erro
error. a major mistake. instead of cooperating lake paul manafort been doing, why didn't he just delete 33,000 emails? a wedding, funeral, yoga, emails to his wife who may be did not have an email? why didn't he delete them all and why didn't he acid wash them with bleach? why didn't he have somebody smash his mobile devices with a hammer? why didn't he turn over all of the cell phones and blackberries to the fbi and remove the sim cards? after all, that worked for hillary clinton, she did that. or maybe paul manafort should have threatened a federal official at a public hearing on tape, for daring to gather evidence. that worked for debbie wasserman schultz. why didn't he follow her example? after all, "the daily caller" is reporting that her aide smashed a hard drive, something he denies.om and put the broken up government property hard drive inside of his garage. what about this? maybe manafort should have refused to hand over any documents at all. why? it worked for eric holder during
fast and furious in that scandal. maybe manafort should have met with the attorney general on the tarmac for 48 minutes.an and had a little private discussion about their grandchildren. that worked for bill clinton and loretta lynch. the destroy-trump-media and democrats are such massive hypocrites when it comes to law and justice in this country. all of those examples clearly prove it. paul manafort, he did make a huge mistake. paul manafort should have followed the examples of hillary clinton, debbie wasserman schultz, eric holder, and loretta lynch. paul manafort gets a predawn raid? what did they think he was going to do? what the democrats did in 5 minutes at 5:00 a.m.? probably take a little bit longer, a bleach pit and smashing devices.ob that takes a long time. they completely ignored this massive democratic scandal. a scandal we've been reporting on a night after night on thisee program.
that the rest of media ignores. as we have seen, the media is it ready to literally jump to everm conclusion and put paul manafort behind bars. the problem is, this russia collusion witch hunt has now gone on for 11 months. so far, it hasn't produced much of anything. where's the smoking gun? where is the mountain of evidence that you haveh been promised, day after day? the hysteria, conspiracy theories? now we have the media cheering on robert mueller who is conflicted and hoping he find something -- literally anything -- also, mitch mcconnell is actually blaming president trump and his excessive expectations as a reason why he hasn't enacted the agenda you voted for. take a look at mitch mcconnell using this ridiculous excuse. it is pretty laughable. >> part of the reason, i think the story line is that we have not done much -- it's because in part, the president and others have set these early timelines.
about things need to be done by a certain point. our president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. and i think had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process. >> sean: he hasn't been in this line of work, in the swamp, the sewer. he doesn't understand the legislative process. okay, this is beyond unbelievable. the president to his credit responded on twitter and wrote... now, mitch mcconnell, you have lived in this d.c. sewer, obviously for way too long. here's the thing that mitch mcconnell doesn't understand. president trump did not set those excessive expectations. senator mcconnell, you did.os republicans did in the house and
senate. you promised over and over again, over seven years that you were going to repeal and replace obamacare. you can even get the skinny repeal done. and a speaker paul ryan sat down with me in february. he promised republicans had a 200 a plan to get all kinds of trump agenda and all these items done and guess what?ms it hasn't happened. senator mcconnell, my message is if you are going to g whine like a 10-year old and complain and blame the president for your failure after eight months of him now being in office and you have in the house and senate -- guess what?ic it's time to drain the sewer and swamp. mitch mcconnell, have you ever had, in all your years in politics, an enthusiastic crowd like president trump? i doubt it. the american people voted for this president's agenda. he has an identity, a plan, he's fighting everyday.'s what you stand for at this point? he has a pen in hand.
he wants it enacted. senator, if you can't get it done, get out of the way. go play golf. retire. go fishing. of course you have people like senator john mccain, after passing the deciding vote to kill the effort, even the skinny repeal and replace obamacare, mccain is back to criticizing president trump for his tough words north, korea. he lives to criticize president trump. he says he's not sure about how president trump's tough rhetoric is going to help. senator mccain, perhaps, would you like to explain your comments and jokes supposedly, about bomb, bomb, bomb iran? you might remember senator mccain doing this. >> you know the beach boys song, "bomb iran?" bomb, bomb, bomb iran? anyway... >> sean: senator mccain, you also in the course your career called for military intervention
in libya, syria, ukraine, north korea, and iraq. these comments from senator mccain just a couple of weeks ago on the senate floor. senator, look at your own remarks. >> i hope we can rely on our need to cooperate, on our dependence on each other. to learn how to trust each other again and by so, doing better serve the people who elected us. stop listening to the bombastic loudmouths on the radio and television and the internet. to hell with them. they don't want anything done for the public good. our incapacity is their livelihood. >> sean: no, you're inaction and incapacity, that's your problem. you made the promises. it's frankly embarrassing and you made these promises andnd americans are suffering. here's the thing, if senators like mccain, mcconnell, lisa murkowski of alaska, if you want to obstruct the entire republican party's agenda, the president's agenda just like the
democrats and then make excuses and cast blame here there and everywhere about why you can't do your job and fulfill your promises? it's now time to clean house. let's put new leaders in washington who will keep their word, their promises, serve the american people. you know what? all of these senators, you should lose their chairmanships. we should put leaders in those positions, in washington, who care about the american people and have a sense of urgency about them. 50 million in poverty, on food stamps, millions and millionsn out of the labor force. finally tonight, president trump -- this is a crisis. his administration is not backing down amid the growing tensions with north korea. earlier today, president trump took to twitter.ow he said...
and his secretary of defense, "mad dog" james mattis followed that up with a strongly worded statement, that reads in part... he continued with this... this situation with north korea is extraordinarily dangerous for the entire world. as i said last night, there are no good solutions and what the trump administration is now facing, the direct result of the policies of appeasement, policies of capitulation to north korean dictators. lets go back to 1994. the clinton administration
struck a deal with kim jong un's father, kim jong il. "the new york times" reported that the u.s. agreed to give north korea -- get this -- $4 billion in energy eight over a 10-year period. oh, with the promise and exchange that north korea will freeze and eventually end their nuclear weapons program? north korea agreed and guess what? they allowed inspectorsno into their nuclear site but they also were allowed to keep their nuclear fuel rods which can be used to make weapons. despite these concerns, bill clinton patted himself on the back and said this is a goot deal for the american people. it turned out not to be such a good deal. take a look. >> this is a good deal for the united states. north korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. south korea and our other allies will be better protected and the entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons. >> sean: as we now know, the world is not a safer place and it wasn't a good deal for the american people.
bill clinton was dead wrong and at the end of the 1990s, north korea testfired a long-range missile and that's why back in 1999, on "meet the press" -- let's see the mainstream media shows you this. then private citizen donald trump with tim russert, criticized bill clinton's horrible deal. watch this. >> do you know that this country gave them nuclear reactors? for ten years, free fuel? they are continuing to do what they are doing. they are laughing at us. they think we are a bunch of dummies. i'm saying we have to do something to stop them. >> mr. trump, if they said -- >> you are giving me two names. you want to do it in five years when they have warheads all over the place? every one of them pointing to new york city and washington?ou is that when you want to do it? or do you want to do something now? you better do it now. >> sean: you better do it now. in 2006, the rogue regime conducted its first nuclear test.
under the obama administration, what do we see? an acceleration of nuclear activity from north korea. it leads us to this very precarious situation we are atst today. earlier today, i had an opportunity to speak with the deputy assistant to the president, dr. sebastianan gork. welcome to "hannity," thank you for being with us. >> thank you, sean. >> sean: okay, am i outlining this right? there are no good answers and this is a far more dire, difficult situation then a lot of people are really realizing here?ul >> you showed the clip with tim russert from almost 20 years ago with the president. he had it right back then and hp has it right today. the fact is, when good men do nothing, evil triumphs. it's not the people of korea that are the problem. it is the regime. it's an evil, evil regime. as bad as anything we know from the soviet union. that nation is a pariah.
that nation is in flagrant breach of international laws with regards to nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles but this is when appeasement ends, sean, this nation and this white house and president will no longer put up with appeasement. >> sean: dr. gorka, i've analyzed this as closely as i can. under a best-case scenario, we had a very important vote over the weekend. the un security council, 15-0. it lets say all of those names come together, allies in israel, even china and russia.sr and we have to take these sites out because they are a clear and present danger to the world. militarily, what we have? we will incinerate north korea. we run the risk of nuclear fallout. what if -- if we don't get it done fast enough, if he fires into south korea, guam, japan or china? what do we do? >> there are multiple scenarios
but i not use force on thesc peninsula. there are covert means that we don't discuss on television that can incapacitate of regimes capacity to use their military. secondly, there is the political option. look at what china just did, sean. thanks to rex tillerson, nikki haley, china -- the biggest supporter of north korea -- and russia said on saturday that enough is enough.e they agreed with us to create the largest sanction package against north korea in the last 30 years. china has realized that a buffer state is no longer a buffer state when it is threatening nuclear war. china is in a position to exert pressure -- and massive economic pressure -- as well as diplomatic, to de-nuclearize north korea. >> sean: we little movement in that direction after the president met with the president of china, i guess there's a little bit of hope there. both ambassador bolton and
newt gingrich talked about the capacity of great -- to be taking a missile out of the air. we know what an electric pulse would do if it exploded over the united states, killing our power grid, all electronics, that's a very scary scenario where potentially millions could die.e >> the coalitions of forces, if you compare our capabilities, north korea, general mattis is absolutely right -- you don't go to war with america, whoever you are, unless you wish to commit suicide. we aren't just a superpower, sean. we are a hyperpower. world history has never seen a nation as powerful as our nation. therefore north korea needs to understand that the black male stops. if you get into an arms race
-- as secretary mattis said --yo with united states of america, you will lose. hewhoever you are. whether you are a village in asia or a state or whether you are any other nation in the world. b >> sean: dr. gorka, thank you. when we come back, we will have more on what he was just discussing.e the blackmail and appeasement. some democrats still want to follow that stupidity. john bolton, lieutenant colonel oliver north are next and much more tonight, straight ahead on "hannity." ♪ what's the story behind green mountain coffee and fair trade? let's take a flight to colombia. this is boris calvo. boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price, he improves his farm and invest in his community to make even better coffee. all for a smoother tasting cup. green mountain coffee.

those that -- john mccain actually suggested that donald trump may set this guy off and then diane feinstein said that president's remarkssa were bombastic and may further isolate them and they wanted bilateral negotiations with people that have never kept an a agreement in their life. what are your thoughts?? >> we've had 25 years of efforts of negotiations with theff north koreans to change their behavior, to get them to give up the nuclear program. we failed for 25 years. there is zero evidence that today in year 26 that is going to be any different. we are past that point, tragically. trump has inherited a very dangerous situation. that's what he is coping with.ly can i say word on his comments about fire and fury? i don't know what went on in the white house to get him to say that but i thought they were entirely appropriate remarks. for too long, we have heard american political leaders say
all options are on the table. they say it in a deep voice, very slowly. nobody cares about that anymore. what trump did was say to a principal audience, north korea and china -- this is a qualitatively different situation for the united states and we are putting you on notice. we are looking very seriously at a military option. that's the one thing that may get china's attention, in particular. >> sean: is there a good solution i'm not seeing? dr. gorka said they are probably other things. are there ones that you are confident, ambassador, would work without taking out those nuclear sites? >> there are certainly a huge range of options that the u.s. could use militarily but what worries everybody -- properly so -- any use of military force, any effort to decapitate the regime with special operators -- really anything that shows what we are really interested in
doing, it would provoke a north korea in response. that's a hard question here. the real question for american citizens is whether we are prepared to take that risksk today. before north korea has dozens and dozens of nuclear warheads on ballistic missiles that can hit the united states.s.on the situation cannot get any better in the coming days. it gets worse. >> sean: if we don't do that now, sooner than later? >> that's a choice we have to face. the united states facing from now until infinity. the risk that the regime in north korea, which is not rational in our terms, will have a deliverable nuclear weapons capability to hit the united states. i'm not prepared to live with that. there's one diplomatic optionit left, persuading china to allow us to reunite the peninsula. if that fails and it's a hard argument to make it, i think the choice is between using military force to take out north korea's nuclear program or living with the threat for innocent american civilians, as far as the eye can see.
>> sean: not a good option. as i've been saying, pretty chilling.ay here now with more, the host of "war stories," lieutenant colonel oliver north. the bottom line, and north korea is now a nuclear power. not a lot of good o options. >> and imposes immediate, serious threat. an existential threat to the united states.edet let me take a step further from what ambassador bolton just said. our only thing we can do right now short of military action is to convince chinese president xi, that it is in chinese interest to act against kim jong un. unless he intervenes, they will have to take preemptive military action. that will have catastrophic consequences for north korea. and the people's republic of china. up to 25% of the population of 25 million is likely to flee on
foot across the river and take to the sea like the people from vietnamxi. here are ten things our president should do to convince xi that we are deadly serious. kim jong un is not listening but xi can. ask for a president moon to bring in as many systems as we can deliver. ask israel to provide sling systems to the republic of korea to deal with the north korean artillery on the dmz. number three, turn in the tactical nukes to the republic -- back in the 1990s,, thank you, mr. clinton. deploy the strike group to the region. long-range strike aircraft, search and rescue assets.. ask ask if we can pay some of our assets in china.as it's unlikely he will agree but it may wake up beijing. deploy the ships mercy and comfort from norfolk and san diego, send them out there.a
very clear signal with americans getting ready to act.y number seven, deploy more isr. and update our target list. that will leak in washington, believe me. biological and chemical weapons equipment. pray that xi sees the light. all those things are necessary before military action can be taken. it may convince president xi that the u.s. is deadly serious and it could preclude the necessity of using our own military assets. >> sean: colonel, as usual, we've been friends a long time. i'm very impressed. i know how well thought out that is. on the american side, we better continues to take defense with massive redundancy. because we don't know theen proliferation. it's way out of control. iran is probably just a few
years, maybe even sooner away from putting us in this position as well. lieutenant colonel, thank you. >> semper fi, buddy. >> sean: semper fi, yes, sir. program alert -- more stories on our fox sister network. coming up, geraldo rivera and judge jeanine pirro. they weigh in on paul manafort's big mistake. we will tell you about that and what do you do about mitch mcconnell? it's time for him to leave the swamp, the sewer. straight ahead. ♪ with an unlimited mileage warranty

>> i'm going tols quibble, i dot recall that from his press conference from well over a year ago. she was reckless but it did not meet the threshold for a criminal indictment or prosecution. >> sean: my question is a between that and unmasking and leaking intelligence, then you've got samantha powers -- really, do we need the u.n. ambassador unmasking hundreds of trump people or a dnc operative at the ukrainian embassy with the ukrainian ambassador? do we really not need to look into quid pro quo, 20% ofan uranium, russia and all this money, the kickback -- my question is this -- doesn't this sound like the type of thing we should have special councils for? >> i'm not clear that it does. i can speak to a couple of those points, the debbie wasserman schultz point, it's really important that there were contacts between her and peoplen she should be speaking with.
as for attorney general lynch, look, she used a pseudonym, an alias. for those emails. that we have been breaking over the week. that is a problem. >> sean: she testified that she only used one email account. it kind of sounds familiar. >> it sounds like she conducted official business under a pseudonym because she didn't want to have spam. i think any american would be upset at the idea that using some kind of a different emailk address would create more problems. i would quibble with the idea that transparency is vital.dr >> sean: last question. i know i am putting you on defense but you are doing a good job. >> you are doing a great y cross-examination. give up your day job. >> sean: if i deleted 33,000 subpoenaed emails and then i acid washed with bleach, which i never heard of before hillary,ig and then i destroyedd blackberries and iphones with a hammer and handed it over to fbi -- devices without sim cards.
and then like debbie wasserman schultz's case, a hard drive smashed up in an i.t. guy's garage -- doesn't that sound like obstruction of justice? politics aside. if i did all that, wouldn't i go to jail? wouldn't i be likely indicted? >> it's really problematic behavior. also they deleted 30,000 emails by a contractor, not anyone associated by the clinton campaign.i' we want the same rules to apply to politicians that are applied to us. i can understand there is a real perception problem out there. >> sean: danielle, you are a good sport. i don't know why you come on my radio and tv show. >> punishment.
