6:00 pm
>> so we are good? >> we are good. apology accepted. >> tucker: here was a political dispute where everybody stayed calm and reasonable bring nobodies life was destroyed at the end, and everybody came back out of the other sides and hands. a good news story. that's it for us tonight but we'll be back at 8:00, the show that's the sworn enemy of smugness and groupthink. >> sean: i would say you are several seconds later, because i know you have the scoreboard -- speed to the clock with that! on a personal note, i'm so sorry that you and your family had to go through. hang in there. we've all had some of this -- it's dangerous. hang in there. i feel bad for your wife, your family, your kids. >> tucker: thank you. the more good news is there are more good people than bad. >> sean: good show, tucker. welcome to "hannity."
6:01 pm
tonight, the sanctity of your vote in this country is at risk. as americans, we have polls on election day, we expect our votes to be tracked, to be counted by diligent, honest officials in accordance with the law. that did not happen in southern florida. since election night, nearly 100,000 uncounted votes have just magically turned up in liberal broward and palm beach counties. we have no idea why they turned up, so many laws -- will outline this, have been broken, our inalienable rights have been spent on and now just breaking moments ago, our sources confirming tonight to "hannity," they are telling us a criminal investigation is in fact underway. coming up, we are going to show you why this crisis in florida should deeply concern all americans, not just floridians. tonight, we've warned you for
6:02 pm
months the disruptive democratic agenda they are hiding will wreak havoc across the country. they are finally telling us endless investigations, subpoenas, request for impeachment, not a single plan to improve the lives of the american people. it is now the top order of business in the democratic-controlled house of representatives, just destroy trump, the pelosi-destroy-trump house, will show you how pelosi, waters are hitting the ground running. they have been planning this all along. sit tight, buckle up. a lot to cover. it will take the full hour. we start with our breaking news opening monologue. let's send a month ago, massive category four hurricane made landfall on the gulf coast of florida, 35 counties were under emergency per 150-mile-per-hour winds wreaking havoc throughout the panhandle. the destruction, as you can see,
6:03 pm
as we saw, was horrific. entire blogs were literally wiped away. the area sustained billions in damage. floridians in the panhandle went to the polls and their votes were counted. every single one of them on time in accordance with florida law and florida's constitution. sadly, the same cannot be said in southern florida. and palm beach, broward county's, we are witnessing a colossal disaster. laws have been broken. florida's constitution ignored. none of this caused by a hurricane, but rather local officials who are incompetent, corrupt, and obviously feel they are above the law, that 65 other florida counties, they adhered to. in palm beach county. 15,000 new ballots where on and counted after election night.
6:04 pm
in broward county, almost 75,000 so-called "uncounted votes" magically turning up day after day after day after the election. tens and thousands of lost ballots just seemingly appeared out of thin air! the vast majority, of course, -- they should not, let me be straightforward. they should not be republican/democrat, conservative/liberal. they shouldn't be about politics. this is much deeper. whatever your political affiliation, what we are witnessing is a horrific miscarriage of america's most fundamental rights. and in a serious potential, no criminal violation. the law is clear. it is unambiguous. florida law: let's put it on the screen. "that canvassing board shall report all early voting, all tabulated vote by mail results to the department of state within 30 minutes after the polls close." the law continues.
6:05 pm
"the canvassing board shall report with the exception of provisional ballot results updated precinct election results to the department at least every 45 minutes until results are completely reported." 65 of florida's 67 counties, they complied with the law, including every county in the panhandle that was absolutely ravaged by hurricane michael 27 days prior to the election. broward, palm beach county, totally ignored the law. broke the law. four days, broward county officials continued to tally literally tens and thousands of votes in violation of state law. it appears yet again we have one system of justice and elections for democrats and another for the rest of us. the supervisor of elections in broward county, a woman by the name of brenda snipes, would not even tell state officials where these mysterious votes were coming from. where the votes have been.
6:06 pm
how many votes were left to be counted. again, a violation of law. there was no updating of votes every 45 minutes. again, violating the law. this morning, multiple boxes full of sample and provisional ballots left behind in some rental car, were actually discovered by an avis employee at fort lauderdale airport. this is insanity. we send election observers to other countries. we need them here. on friday, florida congressman matt gate literally blocked from observing a location where ballots were being loaded into a truck. take a look for yourself. >> why can't we watch what's going on, man? >> you can't be here. >> who told you we can't watch what's going off the truck? i would love to see. you tell me why we can't know what's going in and out of that truck. what's the name of your supervisor? >> will get all this taken care of. do you know their name? the supervisor's name what is
6:07 pm
their name? you know their names? will you tell it to me? >> what's on the truck >> sean: we are seeing in south florida is a national disgrace disgrace and it's much more than that. palm beach palm beach county violated any chance of there beg any real integrity in the vote n florida. we will never have any chance of knowing what the accurate vote tallies were from this past election in the state of florida. that has been ruled. that's off the table. tonight, all we really know for certain is that the "newly counted ballots" have drastically tightened the election and subsequently triggering statewide recounts. all because of what is gross incompetence, corruption, at the broward county supervisor of election board and brenda snipes. she has a history of this. late last week, we have a judge ruling that brenda snipes
6:08 pm
actually violated state election law. what is more outrageous is this is not new for ms. snipes. her track record is literally atrocious. why she's in this position is beyond any understanding. how she's been allowed to be in this powerful position is beyond comprehension. we learned that snipes "accidentally mixed in provisional ballots with several hundred valid votes. that means the entire vote count has been irreversible corrupted. this past august, a judge ruled that snipes mishandled mail-in ballots. a judge also ruled she illegally destroyed ballots following a primary race, and in 2016, some broward county election results posted online, get this, before the polls have closed. in 2012, 1,000 absentee ballots were discovered in
6:09 pm
broward county a week after that election. in 2004, they lost track of 16,000 absentee ballots for this is the woman who can determine the outcome of these important races for the senate and the governor's race in florida. floridians are calling for cuts once is, former governor jeb bush tweeting out there's no question that the broward county of election supervisor brenda snipes failed to comply with florida law on multiple counts undermining flirty and the positive he has confidence electoral -- should be removed from her office following the recounts. maybe now? i don't think we should wait. senator marco rubio, very vocal, also about snipes and her incompetence and corruption, every vote time frame required by law should be counted. the issue in florida has been continued violations by the incompetence and lack of
6:10 pm
transparency of palm beach elections. broward county elections. and now snipes could in fact tonight be facing criminal charges. sources have confirmed to us on multiple levels tonight a criminal investigation into election misconduct in south florida is now ongoing. just a short time ago, florida attorney general pam bondi released a letter from the florida department of law enforcement stating that they will work with the attorney general on any investigation and such acute prosecution of brenda snipes or anyone else who may have commitd voter fraud. the damage has been done. turned senator elect rick scott is sounding the round damming alarm. you do not find 93,000 votes unless you need smoke for cover. this is why it's so problematic. take a look. >> bill nelson is clearly a sore loser. he cannot stand the fact that he's not going to be elected
6:11 pm
for, what, the first time in decades, and he's just here to steal the election. his lawyer came down here and said to win the election. i'm not here to get a free and fair election to make sure votes are not counted. he wants to win back the election. that's his only purpose. >> sean: make no mistake, when the dust settles here, rick scott and ron desantis will take their rightful place as senator and governor of florida. tonight, democratic operatives are trying to prevent that from happening. on friday, lawyers for the gillum and nelson campaign, they actually objected to a judge, and noncitizens votes being rightfully denied! in other words, they want votes from noncitizens to now vote. where is their integrity in all of this tonight? that means they only care about power. nothing else. rule of law means nothing to them. it gets even worse. nelson just hired an attorney. his name is mark les. his name may sound familiar to you. he's the left-wing hack at the
6:12 pm
very center of hillary clinton's attempt to rig the 2016 election with that phony dossier. remember, the dnc paid millions to dig up the russian dirt, higher fusion gps, hiring an ex-foreign spy subsequently put together a dirty dossier full of russian lies that not even christopher steele stood by? that campaign opposition research? it was distributed across all of obama's doj by steele as nonpartisan, leaked to the press before the american -- 2016, only days before the election, he reported "a veteran spy has given fbi information alleging a russian operative to cultivate donald trump." let's not forget about michael as a cop's yahoo report
6:13 pm
september 2016 alleging russian collusion. democrats trying to rig the election with the help of hillary is bought and paid for foreign nationals using russian lies. remember, none of it was ever confirmed. most of it has been debunked. as you can see, elias has been involved in recounts. in 2013, those who have seen past recounts in virginia know that they do not tend to change the results. by the way, it was only 167 vote advantage for the guy he is representing. the next year, he said, quote, recounts really only happened where you are talking about dozens or a few hundred votes separating candidates. gee, marc, i wonder why the change of heart. guns for hire, say anything, just make the rules up as you go along? of course, the democrats pretty
6:14 pm
much wrote the book on election rigging during the 2016 election. i seem like the only one who has pointed this out. we all know the democratic primary, we know it was fixed for hillary clinton. remember, former interim dnc chair donna brazile admitting this on my radio show -- remember, she has actually used the word "rig" that she backed off in this interview but she admitted she used it. >> i said in my book and exchange for bailing out the party -- which was broke, the clinton campaign would get control over certain decisions and aspects that made it difficult, if not impossible, for me to do my job. it was unethical, but it was not rigged. and i stand by that. >> you said you use the word rig. >> of course. i promised bernie that i would go department by department and do a forensic test to find out what happened. >> sean: she used the word "rigged" herself and she tells the story how bernie was robbed
6:15 pm
by the dnc machine that clinton was controlling, the cancer, as she called it. hangs up the phone after having tells bernie sanders the truth, said she cried out of anger over this. we have one system for this, and elections for democrats but like we have one system for justice for the clintons. and another one for anyone who opposes them. this is not equal justice under the law or equal application of our laws. tonight we are going to bring you updates all throughout the hour from florida as they become available, but a criminal investigation -- let me repeat, ongoing as we speak. whatever happens in florida, there is one thing. i know the democrats were all excited because they got control of the house of representatives. by the way, the president in retrospect, now that he went out and fought for all those senate candidates and republicans picked up those seats in the senate, by the way, turned the blue wave into a little baby blue trickle, it is now democrats doing exactly what i told you they would do.
6:16 pm
now coming clean some of the things they were saying on the campaign trail, about what their real plan is to wage what is a never ending full-scale investigation into anything and everything donald trump to destroy this president, according to new reports, pelosi and company -- get this. they are planning to launch a subpoena can cannon with a polil hit list of nearly 100 targets, meaning 100 investigations. tax returns, stormy daniels, james comey, impeachments of justice kavanaugh, wants to investigate the treatment of "washington post," amazon. democrats are stopping at nothing to pursue the unhinged campaign to halt president trump and his progress. by the way, that means our progress for that means america's progress. of course, this is a plan of
6:17 pm
endless investigations. by the way, very few facts. nancy pelosi actually saying democrats don't need an indictment to move forward on their impeachment fantasies while she and other democrats feel even more baseless hysteria about mueller's russia probe. house democrats, they have been working over drive to now smear the acting attorney general that would occur which was the president's lawful choice perio period. don't forget rod rosenstein who's been running this whole thing conflicting in multiple ways like signing a fi fisa, but they are still running it, they don't care about his conflicts. >> i want to make this very clear, if he doesn't recuse himself, if he has any involvement whatsoever in this russia probe, we are going to find out if you made commitments to the president about the problem of serving as a back channel to the president or the lawyers about his probe, whether he's doing anything to interfere
6:18 pm
with the probe, mr. whitaker needs to understand he'll be called to understand and any role he plays will be exposed to the public. we do not want there to be any ambiguity about that. >> you do not have any confidence in him? >> no, i don't. don't take it from me. there is bipartisan editorializing about this that he should've never been appointed and it does violence to the constitution and the mission of our founders to appoint such a person in such a matter to be the chief legal office of the country. that's bipartisan. >> i will go further. his appointment is simply part of an attack on the investigation by robert mueller, the special counsel. it's part of a pattern of interference by the president on the part of pattern of obstruction. >> sean: the only problem is no one is talking about meddling with the mueller probe. nobody. the president has had twice in the last week, no.
6:19 pm
ask yourself, the house democrats -- is there a single agenda item that they are advocating that will make your life better? anyone agenda item that will create more jobs, make this country safer, build a brighter future for our kids and our grandkids books make up well, we know the answer tonight is no. it's all part of what i've been telling you, they've been hiding what their agenda is really all about. it slipped out occasionally and they tell everybody, stop, which is more mobilizing their political hit list. they did not like the result of the 2016 election. they did not like the result of this election. they want to shield their deep state corruption. what they ought to be focused on is our kids and grandkids. and law and order. an equal justice under the law. equal application of our laws. yes, something called our constitutions. yeah, the document which all laws originate from. our founding constitution. we have a lot to get to tonight.
6:20 pm
also talk about georgia. also talk more about this agenda of the democrats as it is revealed. we are going to start with the legal side of all this. we will talk to gregg jarrett, andy mccartney what's happening down in florida. that and so much more as we break down the continue on this breaking news e edition of "hannity." don't let psoriatic arthritis take them away. taltz reduces joint pain and stiffness and helps stop the progression of joint damage. for people with moderate to severe psoriasis, 90% saw significant improvement. taltz even gives you a chance at completely clear skin. don't use if you're allergic to taltz. before starting, you should be checked for tuberculosis. taltz may increase risk of infections and lower your ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you have an infection, symptoms, or received a vaccine or plan to. inflammatory bowel disease can happen with taltz, including worsening of symptoms. serious allergic reactions can occur. for all the things that move you.
6:21 pm
ask your doctor about taltz. why didn't you book your on a travel site?on at, i get the price match guarantee. and i can choose from their 14 different hotel brands, so i get the right hotel for every member of my family. like a doubletree for my cousins who love their warm chocolate chip cookies. a homewood suites for my uncle who likes a long stay. a hampton for my sister and her kids. that's a lot of syrup and the waldorf astoria beverly hills for me. but i thought your family vacation was in miami? it is. i hear they're having a great time. book at and get the hilton price match guarantee. if you find a lower rate, we match it and give you 25% off that stay.
6:22 pm
6:23 pm
6:24 pm
>> what we've seen is the supervisor election in broward and palm beach county, both of them, the courts have said they haven't followed the law. we know brenda snipes mixed illegal ballots with legal ballots. we know they have not let party officials entered the courts have sent follow the law but what i'm trying to do is let them do what we expect.
6:25 pm
the laws are set up to prevent fraud and for whatever reason they do not want to do it. >> that was florida governor rick scott reacting to the latest developments in the florida recount. here with reaction to get the legal side of all of this, author of the number one "new york times" best seller, the russian hoax, fox news legal analyst -- we have the criminal investigation that has now begun with law enforcement, attorney general, pam bondi tonight. what are we possibly looking at legally! >> unfortunately, florida law has no teeth. most of the violations already committed by brenda snipes, who is the epitome of incompetence and recklessness, a fine she does not even pay. there are felony statutes of fraud, about 20 of them in
6:26 pm
florida. so far, three agencies in florida say we have no evidence of fraud. but, sean, their investigation is in a premature stage and only cursory so far. it's good the attorney general pam bondi is avowing an extensive investigation. snipes had the audacity to stand in front of cameras and stomach to say until now no one has ever accused her of doing wrong. that's a lie. every election she's been presiding over since 2002 has been marred in controversy. the question is is capable of corruption? her track record suggest she is. >> sean: let's go to andy. not even a question laws were broken. we saw what the judge said friday night about the florida constitution, laws in this particular case. without rehashing what he said in the opening monologue, i have
6:27 pm
to wonder why she was there but what do you see on the legal side? >> sean, i think you've hit on the right question right now at the start, why is she there? she really should not have been there presiding over this particular election given what her track record is. look, we have a situation where in governor scott's case, somebody had a 50,000 50,000 ln election night, it's down the 12,500. there could be good explanations in that. there could be corrupt explanations in that. the problem is the public has a right to know what is the explanation for it and the way they conducted themselves, it makes it very difficult to give credit to this in terms of this collection system that has integrity. i think as you said at the end of your monologue, at the end of this is what we and make up is
6:28 pm
senator scott and governor desantis because i think they're big leagues are too much to overcome rampant corruption -- >> sean: do we know if we have all the votes? do we still have tens and thousands behind her back as we speak? >> right, but this is the thing. if you are behind your motive, your incentive is to try to foment as much chaos as you can, prevent that from being a ceiling where we know where the votes are, and obviously if you are in front as scott and desantis are, you want some certainty. you want to say however the votes come out, they cannot, but we at least need to know how many there are. >> sean: we are never going to get, i can say with certainty, laws were violated. that's a fact.
6:29 pm
indisputable. we have the incident of snipes rejecting provisional ballots with legitimate provisional ballots. we will never get a accurate count for florida. it has already been tainted on many levels. 65 of the 67 other counties, including the panhandle -- if it happened in the panhandle, i might understand it. if 65 counties continue to get it right in florida, in 2012, 2014, '15, '16, the same players, the same nonsense, the same games, it is not fair to the rest of florida what goes on here. >> it's not. it tells you, sean, something is amiss here when 65 counties can get it right. just about every election committee's two counties, broward and palm beach can't. she missed, brenda snipes, every deadline that was set and everybody else met them. she comingled valid with invalid
6:30 pm
ballots. and astonishingly, tens and thousands of ballots suddenly and magically materialize out of nowhere with no proper accounting, no chain of custody. we have no idea when these ballots were casted and by whom. this has got the nefarious look of corruption written all over it. i'm not saying that fraud was perpetrated. but it does need to be investigated given her track record. >> sean: let's look at two specific issues moving forward. we have two different recounts going on. two difference thresholds. one will be different in the governor's race because the threshold is higher. as much as the vote disparity is greater. that will be a machine recount. then they are going to look at all of these provisional ballots. there, we already have the attorneys for both mayor gillum and soon to be ex senator nelson
6:31 pm
wanting to count the votes of illegal immigrants. they stood up and literally advocated those votes be counted. what are we supposed to do in that case? >> sean, this is where they are philosophically added, though. we have two different things going on here. we have the potential, procedural irregularity that applies to this particular election and you have the overarching democrat approach to government, which is to eviscerate the distinction between citizens and noncitizen noncitizens. we shouldn't think for a moment that if you can wrap your brain around a procedural irregularity that there overarching agenda goes away. it doesn't. they are going to take the position that none of the votes of people who might not properly
6:32 pm
be voting should not be counted because in their minds those people are just as legitimate to count as americans voting are to count. that's a big reason why our electoral system is in the mess that it's in, um, the fact that these people lined with people who shouldn't be voting having their votes counted when we -- that means americans who vote get their votes discounted. that's as big of a problem. >> sean: this is 18 years after 2000. let me ask you this. mark alles, who you know so well from this whole issue -- he hada virginia client i had bio 150 votes. criticize republicans for not conceding things, he had another client just up by 12,000 votes
6:33 pm
and said recount should only be done whether it's dozen or if -- doesn't exactly sound like a man of deep biting principles that cares about fairness and equality under the law as it relates to elections. >> people should be suspicious when hillary clinton's lawyer who paid for russian information is involved in any election recount. that is marc elias. >> sean: the legal side of this is going to be important when we move on. as we come back, we have more stunning examples, stunning examples and bias from the officials in charge of the election. tammy bruce, j christian adams, also met keith's will join us. what he witnessed this weekend. we have the videotape and more straight ahead.
6:34 pm
6:35 pm
6:36 pm
since you're heading off to school, i got you this brita. dad... i just got a zerowater. but we've always used brita. it's two stage-filter... doesn't compare to zerowater's 5-stage. this meter shows how much stuff, or dissolved solids, gets left behind. our tap water is 220. brita? 110... seriously? but zerowater- let me guess. zero? yup, that's how i know it is the purest-tasting water. i need to find the receipt for that. oh yeah, you do.
6:37 pm
6:38 pm
>> sean: joining us now with more reaction to tonight's breaking news, fox news contributor tammy bruce and former doj official, election lawyer at the public interest legal foundation let's see, what people need to know, do you agree with and mccartney's assessment that he doesn't believe it'll ultimately impact the foreign final results, rick scott will be the senator and desantis will be the senator? >> and he is right, but sean, what you are seeing is astonishing incompetence. we sued -- i got to know her very well. i got to know her employees. she was my witness on the stand at a federal court trial that she admitted noncitizens are on the voter rolls in broward. she doesn't turn them in when she finds out about them. she admitted there are felons illegally voting. she doesn't call the police when
6:39 pm
she finds out about them. there are people on her voter rolls who are born, have birthdates when grover cleveland was president in broward county. i got to see close up how incredibly incompetent both brenda snipes is as well as her entire staff. this is not just her, it's the whole office. >> we see that, tammy, because it keeps happening year income a year out. this is nothing new. i go back to the simple point. based on what j christian's adams is saying, why is she there, but more importantly the rest of florida is hurt by this and now they are being heard dramatically by this. there vote ultimately is in jeopardy in the end? >> every illegitimate vote that is counted erases the vote of an american citizen. that of course makes a mockery to your entire system. i take one issue with one word of our friend j christian about
6:40 pm
incompetence. this is intense. i think it's very important and they expect the best of people. but the fact is the left, you can't presume that they mean well. they do not. this is a matter of the ends justifies the means. it's not even about winning, you follow the rules and you dissuaded people. this is about stealing power. that's what we are seeing unfold here. i have to say, the problem with the fbi and doj, everything we've seen with that corruption and the degree they went to to invalidate an american presidential election, i have to suggest that i think it's pretty obvious, that kind of a problem didn't just exist as an isolated issue within the federal government. i think it's throughout the system that now presumes is completely in charge and these elections are charades and are meant to give the impression to
6:41 pm
the american people there vote counts, where you saw hillary's reaction at the shocked that something happened in a predetermined way. we have to take this very seriously. look, you asked rick scott a night or two ago ago at the end of last week, why is she still there. really didn't answer you. that's what concerns me as well. a system allowing a woman like that to continue to operate. because in a way this kind of chaos maybe suits the establishment in general, not just the democrats. >> sean: by the way we are counting the -- we expect by wednesday ron desantis will be declared the winner. it's the 19th, if i'm not wrong, rick scott will be declared the winner in that particular race. i want to go back to brenda snipes and her team and how many hours you spent and what other things you learned about her on top of that, which we already know? >> sean, the trial went on for
6:42 pm
two weeks. they were losing things. when we are in discovery, we ask for their manuals and procedures how they keep the voter rolls in. they couldn't find any. on the third day of trial they spring it from us. astonishing levels of chaos. you've never seen anything like it. they described race, it's the same playbook we see everywhere. i have to warn you, palm beach is going to be a problem. palm beach has outdated equipment. by the way, paper ballots share a lot of the blame. >> sean: what happens when the talk about over votes, under votes, there is a mark over here but over here where you're supposed to do it. but the intent is there for that. in the one case where they went before the judge and they literally, both gillum and nelson's lawyers said no, we want them to count. it was one vote, but one vote
6:43 pm
shows the lack of integrity? >> this entire dynamic shows what governor desantis is going to be up against, what he's going to do have to do and what senator scott is up against. they want to clean this up here in florida is too important of a state. it affects the entire nation, the entire -- the legitimacy of this election is key. both of these men have to step up and take the donald trump approach of being street smart and working for the american people. they will take up the opportunity, i hope. >> sean: now that we know and the criminal investigation is other under way, i want everybody to testify. the problem is it's not going to be some thing them very expeditiously. when we come back, you are not going to believe what happened over the weekend. what democrats are planning to do for donald trump. we have steve scalise. matt gaetz's experience in

>> i want to see his tax return returns. >> sean: hundreds of issues they want to investigate, no plan to make your life better. also the florida recount is on. here's what happened to congressman matt gaetz, ballots being transported. they stop the congressman from doing due diligence. take a look. >> why can't we watch what's going on, man? who told you we can't watch what's going in and out of the truck? i would love to see. all right. you tell me why we can't know what's going in and out of your truck. what's the name of your supervisor. do you know his or her name? the supervisor's name? who -- what is their name? do you know their name? what is it, you tell it to me? what's on the truck?
6:50 pm
>> sean: joining me now is congressman matt gaetz along with an author of the brand-new book, "back in the game, the fight for my life,"," republican house majority whip steve scalise is with us. i know you are still recovering. i know it's been very hard and we know how close you came not surviving that day. we are so glad you're here. we go to the florida recount issue first. you represent the panhandle. 27 days before this election, entire neighborhoods were wiped out. but on time, following florida law, they got the job done. but as usual, broward and palm beach, you went down on behalf of your constituents, i assume, because their votes shouldn't be, well, counterbalanced by something that's corrupt. tell us what happened. >> sean, you're absolutely right. i will be damned if my
6:51 pm
constituents are -- they were armed police stopping me from trying to get an accurate record of what's going in and out of the supervisor of elections office in the middle of the night. i do not know if it was furniture, i did not know if it was election equipment, ballots. what i do know is there are no chain of custody for 80,000 ballots. those ballots reach five pages long, so you're looking at over 404,000 pages of information -- i'm still waiting to hear from the supervisor! look, what are we afraid of? we had the palm beach supervisor of elections tell the media if they didn't turn their cameras off, she was going to have them arrested. that's the type of thing you would expect in a communist or fascist dictatorship. >> even if they weren't being rude. >> if i was jim acosta, this would be viewed as a human rights violation. because i'm a congress and being
6:52 pm
being -- i couldn't get an accurate record of what's going on and no chain of custody of her ballots. >> sean: unbelievable. how could you have any faith in it coming days after the election? congressman, you just heard nita lowell. we've been hearing for maxine waters. axios identified at least 100 investigations. how do you stop what is obviously the pelosi-destroy trump at all costs subpoena brigade? >> i think they go down this road at their own peril. president trump following through on all the things he promised he would do. it's why the left doesn't like him so much. it's also why in every place i would go to, every swing district i would go to, you would see thousands of people showing up for trump rallies. president trump would show up to a place and that would not only be a packed house of a 15,000
6:53 pm
person arena, they would be another thousand waiting outside because they love what he's done to get this country and economy back on track. if you look at the senate seat he's able to flip through the democrat seats that are not republican senate seats because of president trump's leadership. they want to have this agenda, sean, where they want to harass the president. i think it's going to backfire on them like what happened at the kavanaugh hearing. >> look what happened in his stomach obama is first midterm,8 senate seats, 52 house seats, matt gaetz was saying good thing he worked hard and picked up those senate seats and we won those races. >> donald trump is pretty good at winning states and that's what presidential reelection will be all about. president trump's coalition
6:54 pm
clearly involves creating massive turnout in areas where he's popular. he embraced the challenge of this midterm unlike any president in modern history. now we've got to make sure the strategy of the resistance doesn't metastasize from obstruction in congress for stealing elections. that's why the work we're doing in florida is so important. i do not want to give the democrats any opening in the future to go and do that. >> sean: by the way, steve, i did read your book. it's "back in the game, one gunman, callous heroes, the fight for my life." it describes so many great heroes. thank you. when we come back, congressman elect dan crenshaw appeared on saturday night live after one of the comedians mocked his war wounds. straight ahead.

since you're heading off to school, i got you this brita. dad... i just got a zerowater. but we've always used brita. it's two stage-filter... doesn't compare to zerowater's 5-stage. this meter shows how much stuff, or dissolved solids, gets left behind. our tap water is 220. brita? 110... seriously? but zerowater- let me guess. zero? yup, that's how i know it is the purest-tasting water. i need to find the receipt for that. oh yeah, you do.

6:59 pm
crenshaw. he lost an eye due to an ied injury. this we can, dan crenshaw this weekend on saturday night live where he accepted the comedians apology and had a really important message for all of us. >> i mean this from the bottom of my heart, it was a poor choice of words. the man is a war hero and deserves all the respect in the world. i just wanted to save your people that don't know, the reason you are wearing an eye patch right now is you lost your eye to ied in afghanistan during your third combat tour. i'm sorry. >> thank you, pete. i appreciate you saying that. >> we are good? >> we are good. there is a lot of lessons to learn here, not that the left and right can still agree on one things, but from this, americans can forgive one another. >> sean: really, really class act. this veterans day, i do want to take a moment and acknowledge the great, great sacrifices that
7:00 pm
our military has made every single day. they protect our freedom, our liberty, our constitution, our way of life that we often take for granted. i want to thank every woman, men and women in uniform, past and present. thank you for your sacrifice. it will not be forgotten. let not your heart be troubled with laura ingraham taking it away. >> laura: hannity, great to see you. by the way... i think you should wear one of those salmon color hoodies that davidson wore on saturday night live. what if you just came out one night and did the whole opening, breaking news monologue, in that salmon color hoodies? that would be cool. >> sean: you are breaking up. i can't hear you. hello? >> laura: you always do that! when i do a good joke, you always do that. it's like that hold the commercial, can't hear you, water running! >> sean: hang on, the water is running. marc
