10:02 pm
joins us in a few minutes and i have an exclusive interview andh george papadopoulos his wife simona, but that's coming up later. first tonight's breaking news opening monologue. ♪ >> sean: hard to believe, but 17 years ago today we were attacked like never before right here on american soil. all told, 2,977 innocent men and women and children lost their lives at the hands of pure evil. fulfilling what they think is there evil ideology designed by evil man by the name of osama bin laden. some of the finest people on earth were senselessly killed. good, hardworking people in the world trade center. first responders, police, over 300 firemen. while everybody was washing down, they rushed into those burning towers. many others in the pentagon, the passengers, the crew of the planes that were brutally hijacked and used as weapons of war, including the brave men and women on flight 93. they fought back against their attackers.
10:03 pm
let's roll, causing that plane to crash in a remote field in pennsylvania, miles away from what we believe was their intended target in washington, d.c. today president trump visited brand-new monument honoring those brave american souls and he delivered these powerful remarks. let's take a look. >> all of america wraps up and joins together. we close our arms to help you shoulder your pain and to carry your great, great sorrow. your tears are not shed alone, for they are shared grief with an entire nation. we grief together for every mother and father, sister and brother, son and daughter who was stolen from us at the twinn towers, the pentagon and here in this pennsylvania field.
10:04 pm
we honor their sacrifice by pledging never flinch in the face of evil and to do whatever it takes to keep america safe. >> sean: tonight as we honor all of those whori lost their lives 17 years ago today, we must never forget the danger of radical islamic terrorism is real, it is always lurking, they are, they were at war with us. we were not at war with them. we better be prepared and we better accept that sad but true reality. meanwhile, one particularly unhinged -- while msnbc conspiracy tv morningg host seems to have really forgotten just how devastating 9/11 2001 was. out aold liberal joe put new op-ed. he put it in "the washington post." it's entitled trump is harming the dream of america more than any foreign adversary ever could. yesterday, the day before 9/11
10:05 pm
but literally he's promoting this absurd article and he sends out a tweet that reads "my latest trump is damaging the dream of america more than any terrorist attack ever could. and according to the tweet and that op-ed, joe scarborough a thinks trump is worse than 9/11 where we lost nearly 3,000 people. the economy has turned around. people have jobs. 4 million fewer people on heree on here wished down my food stamps. that's how low we were going to sink? sometimes i literally hang -- there is no net underneath me right now. this is a live show. i do three hours of live radio every day. sometimes you can say things and they come out wrong. as congress would say, extend our remarks. some things can be unintentional, slip of the tongue. this was thought out written piece. he spent time thinking of this and today on his dumpster fire of a morning show, he doubled down on stupid. watch this. >> if you strip america of its ideas, forget about knocking
10:06 pm
down buildings in the financial district, forget about running planes into the pentagon, those are tragedies, but those tragedies bring us closer together. america is an idea. you've got america of that idea, that's when you do the most harm. the reach weeding of the neo-nazi videos, charlottesville. i could go on and on what he said about majority black countries.i that is tearing more at the fabric of america than attacks on the twin towers did. we rebuild from that. we became stronger because of that. but this seems to me a far graver threat to the idea ofbu america. >> sean: hey, joe. kids grow up without their fathers and mothers and after facing much backlash for his absurd comparison, he partially tried to backtrack as well thought out "column" and said he should have shown moree care
10:07 pm
and wording his tweet and then his blushing bride to become a fellow host mika burzynski vigorously defends him on twitter. of course america's cutest couple. perfect example of what happen when trump derangement syndrome gets way out of control. at this point i don't even think these two can ever recover. it's that sick. we will deal more with this later but we now have some very important breaking news tonight. literally minutes ago sara carter handed us brand-new never before seen on earth to tax once again between fbi lovebirds strzok and paige. why don't they just hand them all over? in september 2016, months before the election it appears strzok and page were working, or contributing to an op-ed about russian election interference. look at your screen right there. september 2nd. lisa page asked strzok "we are still writing the op-ed, yes? "strzok he responds. "the washington post," they published a story about russian
10:08 pm
interference on the very same day. sara carter reporting tonightt the former fbi lovebirds share a link to an article in strzok rights just read the article. we say a lot of the same things. i guess that's okay. and then page writes back "yeah, but that's why ours is going to need to be more folksy so it's not like a news article. maybe like more smelly walmart people. strzok had said that. these new text released yesterday from congressman matos, a pretty clear picture of what's going on. including this text from strzok to page, it took place on april 10th 2017 reading "i had literally just gone to find this phone to tell you what i want to talk to you about. media leak strategy with the doj before you go. fbi and doj colluding. and then two days later onbe april 12th strzok warned lisa page that the articles were coming out about her namesake, carter page and then on
10:09 pm
april 22nd we originally believed this was on april 12th, metal's office corrected that earlier today -- same point. peter strzok told lisa page article is out, well done. this is what we have now been telling you what is a coordinated effort, the highest levels of the fbi and the doj leaking into trump information before the election, after the election, to the press first to stop them from becoming president and then to destroyy his presidency. sneaky peter strzok is not trying to actually put out his own conniving spin on this fresh new scandal.s his attorney says the term media leak strategy in his text refers to a departmentwide initiative to detect and stop leaks to the media. the president and his enablers are once againin peddling unfounded conspiracy theories to mislead the american people. but our words sound exactly alike. we are going to have to make it more folksy. don't insult our intelligence. this is the same peter strzok who claimed under oath that political bias didn't impact
10:10 pm
his work as an fbi agent. but hillary should win 100 million to nothing. the same super patriot who played a critical role in exonerating hillary clinton -- we know she committed felonies and fermenting this witch hunt from the get-go against goe against donald trump while trashing him on his work phone, openly wishing hillary would win the how could anyone vote for trump? i just was in a walmart. smelly walmart people were there, i could smell the term supporters. earlier today the president responded on twitter "so terrible, nothing being done at the doj or fbi, but the world is watching. and they get it completely." we did reach out to strzok, page and the doj, we have yet to get at response. more on these breaking news developments. sarah and greg will join us in a few minutes.. we shift our focus to what is the most in important midterm election of yourve life. i will say this for the next 56 days. last night i called her need to wake up, pay attention.f republicans, to be very blunt because i only tell you the truth, they are in real danger of losing the house of representatives and the senate?
10:11 pm
i'm not that comfortable about thatpu either. look at your if that is your district he will likely decide the fate of this country in 56 days. democrats win these races, the trump agenda will be stopped. it will halt right in its tracks. all the progress we've been telling you about, the democrats, their insane quest for impeachment will begin in earnest. just listen to chuck and maxine waters. the senate?n frankly also offer glass democrats. you can forget about constitutionalist judges getting confirmed. it won't happen. meanwhile, right here on this program we have long warnedd that it's only a matter of time before the aggressive threatening rhetoric and tactics coming from the left ih going to result, somebody is going to get hurt or killed. here's kind of what i'm talking about, take a look. >> i will go and take trump out tonight. >> i have thought an awful lot about blowing up the white house.e. >> course i want to punch him
10:12 pm
in the face.ow >> if you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant in the department stores at a gasoline station and you tell them they are not welcome! >> please get up in the face or some congresspeople! >> i just don't even know why there aren't uprisings all over the country, and maybe there willme be. >> sean: get in their face, chase of sarah sanders, pam bondi, secretary nielsen out of restaurants. just say anything horrible about the first lady, the first daughter, even a 12-year-old kid. over the weekend, someone did in fact get in the face of a republican congressional candidate. rudy peters. never heard of him before but he is running as a republican. california's 25th district. and guess what? he was approached at a campaign booth by a man who is making disparaging remarks about the. republican party. that deranged individual then pulls out a switchblade and attempted to stab peters but the knife thankfully malfunctioned and then they had a confrontation.
10:13 pm
i've said it a million times before and i will say it again, the tactics of the anti-trump resistance have gone way too far and while peters was able to escape unharmed, and i always blame people for what they do, you can't blame people's rhetoric for what people's actions are, but a you've got to admit this is not helping. the next victim might not be so lucky. but if it was a conservative, they would go nuts blaming talk radio at the fox news channel. i'm now holding individuals responsible. the rhetoric is reckless, it's dangerous and it's out of control. more on the upcoming election throughout the show. joining us now with reaction to our big breaking news is thehe author of the number one "new york times" best seller, the russia hoax. the illicit scheme to clear hillary clinton and frame donald trump. fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett and fox newso investigative reporter in contributor, sara carter. sarah, let's go to the news. this just broke within the last hour or so. you've now got new text s
10:14 pm
messages on top of the old text messages. we got a response from the attorney of peter strzok. it is ridiculous, considering we can read and we have fundamental simpleet basic understanding of what they were texting back and forth. let's talk about the new text messages. >> i think these new text messages, sean, really expose what was going on inside the fbi and doj. once again, we are seeing more evidence of basically collusion within the fbi and doj to change and shift the narrative during the 2016 investigation into president trump and then candidate trump. collusion with russia. there has never been any proof of this. we know now based on these text messages not only did they use a dossier that was unverified. a dossier that was salacious, one that even christopheros steele, he wrote himself that, it was not verified and now we are seeing in these text messages that they are shifting the narrative. what's most important here, sean, is that congress get to the bottom of this.
10:15 pm
that is why they are askingg deputy attorney general rod rosenstein to investigate this. we need to re-question all of these players, strzok, page, sally yates, the boss of bruce ohr, everyone. everybody needs to be requested on this and they need to find the answers to these questions because, honestly, it's not looking good for them. >> sean: that's right. >> a statement today by strzok and his attorney, if laughable and it's actually shameful and dishonest. >> sean: kids and life and they are and they try to lie to you. and you are like don't insult my intelligence. stop. >> they must think americans are stupid. they issue a statement saying peter strzok was trying to detect and stop leaks. look at the plain language of the text. here's one of them. the article is out! well done, page. that is not stopping a leak, that's creating a story. >> sean: we have to sound more folksy.
10:16 pm
>> all of this just underscores that there was one purpose in mind and that was too damaged donald trump and undo the election. and they were all leaking. it wasn't just strzok and page. andrew mccabe nowmp under investigation for leaking to the media and lying about it four times. the biggest leader of all, ofew course, is james comey, stole government documents and gave them to an unauthorized personi for the sole purpose of leaking them to trigger the special counsel. we have strzok -- >> sean: we have mccabe, t comey, sarah. we have yates. we also have rod rosenstein. he appointed mueller.we i really want to get into this. he kind of holds the keys to the kingdom in a way, doesn't he? because doesn't he get to decide -- let's say mueller writes a report. he will make the decision, if i'm not mistaken if the report is released to the american people. t number two, doesn't he get toot decide, rob muller has to go to
10:17 pm
him and say i want to subpoena donald trump and i went to get him under oath and have a year-long court fight to make him testify before a grand jury? so if rod rosenstein is conflicted in this whole thing, which we now know he is because he signed forth fisa warrant, the third renewal, how does that work? and he is a witness in the comey firing. >> as far as obstruction is concerned and if mueller is going down that road, rod rosenstein himself was the one that wrote the letter to recommend the firing of comey. he's either a witness or a coconspirator. he can't be in charge of this investigation. and another point in fact, he signed that forth fisa and this is why it is imperative that president trump declassify those documents, declassify the fisa documents that need to be declassified, the gang of eight
10:18 pm
dossier that they showed it to particular members of congress, that's very important because that also contains exculpatory information in the bruce ohr interviews with the fbi. once all that information is out, the american people are going to know the truth, and that's why it is so important to hold these people in the doj accountable and get those documents declassified. >> sean: i don't think it will do it all and went on. they are also important how we he should do one one day, let the american people absorb the magnitude of it, then another one, then another one. but here's the thing, what is the culpability here of rod rosenstein? >> it could be tremendous. >> sean: will he be the one that decides whether or not they pursue a subpoena against trump? does he make that decision or does mueller make it? >> it would be mueller initially but with permissionn and consent of rod rosenstein. >> sean: and if he says no it doesn't happen. >> he shouldn't just be not ino the department of justice.
10:19 pm
>> sean: here's the conflict, wouldn't he get mad if donald trump releases the warrant that he signed? does he then seek revenge by saying we are going to go after it subpoena the president? >> he might well do that. he has every interest to continue to obstruct theig release of these documents.. he absolutely does. this is a man -- >> sean: if you released anything about me that makes me look bad i will unleash mueller even further on you. >> he absolutely could. it's the abuse of power and there is no justice at the department of justice currently under rod rosenstein and jeff isessions. >> sean: last word? >> he r could. but that doesn't take away from the fact that the american people deserve to know the truth. we deserve to understand what happened here and we deserve to move on. so we need those declassified. >> sean: unbelievable information. that close. the cards are going to come tumbling down. thank you both, you have been amazing from the process. eric trump is here in studio. first time together, george papadopoulos.
10:20 pm
he's got to spend 14 days in jail. they will join us on set. i will address barack obama calling the benghazi attack story the truth by the heroes of benghazi a conspiracy theory as this busy news night continues. we are glad you are with us. thanks for being with us. ♪

10:27 pm
apologize for things the political class demands he apologizes for, so what? for me, 4 million more americans working, 4 millione fewer americans on food stamps, all the things you talked about. more importantly, he keeps his word. conservative justices, supreme court, fighting for the borders. i would say not having a missile fired over japan since december is pretty successful.. hostages home, remains of soldiers home. and everyone thought he would o start world war iii. kind of worked out differently and better for the whole world. >> those savages that took down the world trade center, that flew a plane into a field in pennsylvania, they are largely gone because of the actions of my father over the last 24 months. if you go back 24 months, all you heard about isis, isis, isis, every day. he put a war on them like they've never seen before. he on handcuffed the military,s he let the guys who do the best job in the world, the brave men and women go after these people and go after these savages and
