tv   The Ingraham Angle  FOX News  November 14, 2019 11:00pm-12:00am PST

11:00 pm
hate trump, psychotic rage media mob. we will always pursue the truth. let not your heart be troubled. the news on this network doesn't stop h h because laura ingrahams standing by. >> laura: hannity, i decided to come back to the swamp from the manhattan swamp to the d.c. swamp. hannity, i wish you were here tonight. you know why? not just because you brighten up the place. >> sean: that's not true! you know people in that place hate me! >> laura: no, no, they love you. they act like they hate you but they love you. it's that kind of thing we do. okay, so over at union station, the train station, they have the lawyers meeting up with veconservative lawyers meeting, called the federalist society, the death star for the left, they hate the -- >> sean: justice kavanaugh. >> laura: all these left-wing protesters over there, they have a big screen television of christine blasey ford's testimony running for, like, two hours. that is the best thing i could imagine for the conservative cause. that wass a disaster for them.n
11:01 pm
yet they are blaring it outside the poor federalist society convention. they are truly going insane, hannity. i wish you were here to see that. >> sean: you know what, a voice like yours in a moment like this, rush limbaugh, the great one mark levin, let me tell you, this is an important moment for this country. all hands on deck. take it away. >> laura: great show tonight. you take care. i am laura ingraham. this is "the ingraham angle"re from the swamp tonight.. the reaction from the democrats and the media over the last 24 hours reveals many truths but one truth in particular, the folks who are pushing this impeachment are no longer confident in their position. congressman kevin mccarthy and lee zeldin are here to explain. also tonight, his aggressiven reporting on ukraine and the bidens have made him public enemy number one. at last, tonight john solomon sets the record straight. we have new reporting that will rock washington tomorrow. violent leftist attacks from coast to coast. we speak to a former mma fighter
11:02 pm
who took on antifa.t and a republican congressman's son who was attacked and spray-painted in the face by young socialists in north carolina. but first, democrats impeach themselves. that is the focus of tonight's "angle." s♪ despite relentless attempts to play act about how competent their impeachment case is, well, democrats and their kissing cousins in the media seem pretty shaky and incoherent. after the claim of a quid pro quo has fizzled, democrats are radically grasping for something that people can actually understand about this ukraine thing. let's just pick bribery out of a hat. >> bribery. that is in the constitution attached to the impeachment proceedings. >> what was the bribe here? >> the bribe is to grantt or withhold military assistance in
11:03 pm
return for a public statement of a fake investigation into the election. that is bribery. >> laura: [laughs] okay. here's the problem, yeah, of course, nancy, it's in the constitution, we can read. the president may be impeached for bribery, treason, high crimes and misdemeanors. even assuming the democrats' strained facts, attempted bribery is not in the constitution. remember, ukraine got its military aid. it was 14 days delayed. big deal. remember, ukraine never made ana public statement about any investigation. the fellow on the other end of the call, zelensky, said he did not feel pressured o at all. he didn't even know aid was frozen to his country until weeks later. so the call, in his words, was normal. so it's another swing and a miss.
11:04 pm
but that's okay, that's okay, because democrats think they are cats. they have nine political lives when it comes to impeachment. so if the country is tuning them out -- and they were turning them out -- it's only because their star witnesses lack a certain je ne sais quoi. nbc news said that they lacked the pizzazz necessary to capture public attention. reuters had a similar take. "fireworks and explosive moments were scarce." again, this just demonstrates that democrats aren't serious about underlying substance. their lack of dramatic flourish is not the problem. it's the absence of facts that's the problem. the public, though, i think is a lot savvier than the democrats think. case in point: we at fox news crushed the competition last
11:05 pm
night and throughout the entire day of programming. now this must be very upsetting to the other cables, and i want to rub it in their faces. not at all. after all, this was supposed to be, was it not, their big payoff, impeachment is upon us. but even their viewers have not seem to bought into the narrative. just when you thought cnn cannot go lower, they do go lower. like this moment with kellyanne conway. >> i don't want to talk about yourur marriage. i know that there are issues there. your husband, george conway, he's a lawyer -- >> what did you say? did you say they are issues there? >> i don't want to -- >> why did you say that? >> i don't want to talk about your marriage. >> you just said i don't want to talk about your marriage, "there are issues." >> laura: that is just disgusting. that is appalling. remember, wolf is supposed to be the nice guy at cnn. but now he and the rest of theni
11:06 pm
left have become basically -- they are a bunch of humorless, angry skulls. media matters and their pals in the media's reaction to raymond arroyo and myself joking about state department official george kent's huge water bottle at yesterday's hearing, okay, we were joking about it last night. look at these headlines. they devoted headlines to ourg, joke.la okay, "fox news stunned that impeachment witnesses drank water." "fish are not this hydrated." that was a funny line. i'll talk about this. including conway, george conway, he gave a glancing blow to it. but we found it very interesting because not that long ago, a lot of the same characters thought the republicans -- watergate -- was actually pretty darn hilarious. >> can a drink of water make or break a political career? >> did ryan have a strenuous p90 work out before the debate?
11:07 pm
he was gulping it out like a dehydrated triple-a shortstop. a >> i need a drink. i will get that. okay, got this. >> laura: oh, stephen, so funny. it's only funny when republicans get thirsty in public. i see, i just have to understand of their rules. none of these people should be taken seriously. because they know they do not have a legitimate case for impeachment, and they are going forward with it anyway. and yet they pretend to be taking this entire affair very, very seriously. >> on the investigation front yesterday, it was a very somber day. the democracy depends on that are public. not a monarchy. that responsibility going for
11:08 pm
sadly, prayerfully. with a heavy heart. >> laura: i mean, she ain't going to win any golden globes. no way, not with that performance. prayerfully? don't hide behind prayer for what you are doing to the country. i think she better pray that they have, like, a videotape of president trump promising a lifetime stay at mar-a-lago to zelensky because they got nothing approaching impeachable acts here at all. is there a chance, though, is there a chance, if they see their impeachment act going dowa in flames like the hindenburg, that they wouldn't vote on impeachment at all? hmm, listen closely. >> something that you haven't decided -- >> that will be up to the committee to decide. >> laura: that will be up to the -- so they haven't decided? they may not vote at all on impeachment, after all of this?o remember, pelosi said that she had evidence of bribery after
11:09 pm
press conference. bribery! then moments later, she isn't even confident that her caucus will impeach. >> we have not made a decision to impeach. >> laura: anyone else sensing there might be a wicked case of buyer's remorse here setting in? at this case, who knows what to believe, because if nancy pelosi's lips are moving, it's a good chance she's not m telling the truth. but we do know one thing for sure. in the past year, since taking control of congress, these democrats have done nothing for working americans except act on their own maniacal desire to dislodge president trump from office. that is the real impeachable offense. and that's the "angle." joining me now is congressman lee zeldin of the foreign affairs committee and byron york, chief political correspondent for the "washington examiner," and a fox news contributor. congressman zeldin, you see their narrative shifting, they are adding, it looksks like a
11:10 pm
little basket of their own deplorables. they are throwing new charges in because other ones aren't connecting or they are not panning out. what do you see the last 24 hours having revealed, and then tomorrow? >> shiny objects, looking for more shiny objects, moving goalposts, quid pro quo last sunday, morning news shows about extortion, then yesterday and today, it's about bribery.la they don't have the evidence to actually convict the president on bribery. nc so i don't know what they are going to do next. they are going to have to move the goalposts yet again. i thought yesterday's hearing that took place with their star witnesses felt totally flat. >> laura: they clearly know it ydid not work. i don't care what they say. those nbc analysts aren't saying they fizzled because their star -- stars are bright. they were -- they might be the nicest people ever but they werh duds. >> i think there was high expectations for people who were tuning in who thought that these fourth, third, second, no hand information in some situations,o
11:11 pm
it is going to be first-hand, really important dots getting connected -- >> laura: nothing there. >> adam schiff's parity was going to get proven, did not happen. >> laura: tomorrow, marie yovanovitchid testifies. what do you expect, knowing that they know clearly that this is in trouble? >> if you read the transcript of marie yovanovitch, it's a long story of her not knowing what is going on. >> laura: former ukraine ambassador. >> she is in ukraine, some ukrainians are telling her to watch her back, people are going, they are after you, maybe rudy giuliani is coming after you and she is thinking about what is going on. it's this long story of her not knowing actually what is going on. what i think is extraordinary about this whole thing is that republicans have been pressing, this is just a second and thirdhand information, and that kind of irritates democrats. but there are people, if you want to investigate that, who talked the president about this. john bolton talked to the president, mick mulvaney talked to the president, and the democrats have dropped their
11:12 pm
attempt to talk to them. >> laura: very important for everyone tonight to understand.y they are not pursuing -- not legally, you have to go to court urto push this. they are not going after mulvaney, not going after bolton.outh they don't want this to goer to the court. isn't that the case? smart strategy on the part of the white house, too. >> if it was anything privileged, the president's private conversation with the chief of staff, or his national security advisor about foreign affairs. you would have to go to a judge if you are the house and say, our impeachment investigation is so important that it outweighs whatever privilege it is. and they are not doing it. >> laura: congressman, the democrats' new leaders -- two leaders, adam schiff and aoc, the thought leaders of the party -- schiff had a novel theory about why trump should be impeached. >> we showed with the impeachment of the president that we can hold the white house accountable and build our future at the same time. >> let's not act or pretendam tt donald trump is not a climate crisis unto himself. if we want to protect our planet, we also need to make
11:13 pm
sure that holding the president accountable and this white house is a part of that, too. >> laura: went from quid pro quo to bribery, then they said, this guy overheard a phone call in a restaurant and the russians could have intercepted it, now playing t around with top-secret information on an unsecured -- now it is the planet. now it's gone planetary, guys! >> way to think outside the box. that has absolutely nothing to do with the charges that they want to level against the president. really, charges don't matter for them. facts don't matter, evidence doesn't matter, they just want m to remove the president. it is about a payoff toof people who put them in charge, that gavel that speaker pelosi has in her hands, she has because of aa base that pledged to resist, oppose, obstruct, impeach -- >> laura: what about the idea that she may not call a vote? could this get into auc situatin where she is feeling, they are feeling the heat in some of these districts and they are
11:14 pm
worried about losing the majority? >> yes, they are going to lose the majority. >> laura: is there a chance they don't call this vote?de >> there is. you have a growing amount of house democrats who are getting burned back home. they are in districts that donald trump won -- >> laura: what have they delivered? byron,in bill clinton actually called into cnn to deliver a message to president trump. watch. >> you got hired to do a job. every day is an opportunity to make something good happen. and i would say i've gotap lawys and people hammering theng impeachment inquiry. meanwhile, i'm going to deliver for the american people. >> laura: i can't believe i am saying this. i agree with bill clinton. the president shouldn't even talk about it. he talked about it too much in the rally. >> he said it every day in 1998. he got impeached but it did work in the sense that he got acquitted. on the other hand, democrats are going to do this. every time you are doing something, you reach a point -- >> laura: point of no return. >> never mind. also, they got 232 votes tont
11:15 pm
continue this inquiry. that is 14 more -- >> laura: how many do they have on the emoluments clause? they were going to impeach him f on emoluments a few months ago. >> you have democrats that have been launching articles of impeachment virtually since inauguration day and there have been counts, articles accusing the president of dividing theen country, saying terrible things about the nfl, all sorts of stuff. there've been a core of democrats who have wanted to impeach him from the very beginning. but now you do have 232 who voted for this. >> laura: but do you think avtomorrow will change any mind? yes or no? >> no. >> laura: congressman, yes or no? >> no. >> laura: the restaurant conversation man who overheard the conversation that gets deposed on -- >> why did you say the thing a few weeks ago? >> laura: finally, you have to work on the weekends. just kidding. gentlemen, great to see you. thank you. we all know there is nothingst bipartisan about this impeachment inquiry. if you needed evidence, here's today's dueling press conferences from the respective yparty leaders. >> there is nothing compelling,e
11:16 pm
there's nothing overwhelming. it only emphasized again what is not being done in congress and what should be being done in congress. impeachment has overtaken every single committee. we are less than a year away from the election. these democrats do not trust the american public. >> laura: now compare that to house speaker nancy pelosi. >> what president trump has done on the record in terms of acting to advantage his foreign power to help him in his own election and the obstruction of information about that, the cover-up, makes what nixon did look almost small. >> laura: [laughs] this is unbelievable. if you missed that gem today, we just gave you a gift of laughter. joining me now for some clarity, house minority leader kevin mccarthy.
11:17 pm
congressman, your response to nancy pelosi? now it went from quid pro quo fizzle, bribery, absurd, obviously nothing was withheld. then they say, someone overheard something in a restaurant. and now it's worse than nixon. swing and a miss every time. it's worse than nixon. >> don't forget climate. each week will be something new. because each time theyey failedo prove anything.be it really goes to the court. i always wonder, why does adam schiff lie so much? why would he say, i have proof beyond circumstantial. lie about meeting with glenn simpson. lie about knowing the whistle-blower. lie about the transcript. he wants to impeach this president so badly. they are afraid to face him at the ballot box so they want to frame him. that is what they will continue to do. whatever it takes to impeach this president, they will start something new. >> laura: the reporting on the whistle-blower -- and we have not confirmed this -- the reporting on the whistle-blower out there has very interesting associations with the deep state, with the highest level deep state actors in the previous administration.
11:18 pm
it certainly makes people wonder whether this was all a big set up from the beginning. whether it was a patriot on the inside, a la strzok and page. it's the new strzok and page, white house style. >> how many different times aret they going after this president? this so-called whistle-blower, whoever she or he is, only adam schiff knows, met with schiff's staff before they ever met with an attorney or the ig, when they met with the ig, then they told the ig that they met with the staff. adam schiff says --ha >> laura: it was a disastrous decision to do this. a complete disaster. that was one of nancy pelosi's biggest mistake is shifting is over just reporting. >> nadler is pretty enough. >> laura: nadler is bad but schiff isn't working. i mentioned this with the nixon comparison but nancy pelosi clearly gave the thumbs-up and the green light, with the framing, framing a day because everyone was repeating it today. itng became very comical. watch. >> remember what richard nixonom did.
11:19 pm
at the very least, he kept it within the bounds of the united states. >> far more serious and far more witnesses than richard nixon has. >> is speaker pelosi right that this makes what nixon did look almost small? >> it does. this is so much more serious than nixon's activities. >> laura: congressman, wasn't an actual crime at the center of watergate? >>er yes. what is so ironic here, you have the transcript. we all know what is the evidence, we can all read it, and they bring person after person that wasn't on the phonee call, that have never met the president, that have never met mick mulvaney, and they think, it's how i feel. i just don't like the president. they are bringing somebody -- >> laura: who withheld aid? who withheld aid for eight years? obama. >> you know what the one expertise these witnesses have about ukraine is that ukraine is actually safer today with a trump administration because he didn't send blankets. they sent actually a javelin
11:20 pm
that can stop a tank. >> laura: the president tonight at his rally said adam schiff should be prosecuted for his comments on this. he's a thief, a crook, a corrupt politician, frankly,m he should be prosecuted. het a huge resounding applause line. what do you think about that? >> i just think adam schiff, he's only focused on impeaching this president. he will lie about anything to get there. he auditions these witnesses in the basement, he's going to do more this weekend. he cherry picks who can come to the hearing. if you watch it, it's allat abot adam. adam gets the first 45 minutes. >> laura: new omb witness coming out, someone who is going to defy the white house's request to appear. omb witness, i guess, who would be able to say something about why the money was frozen or released. are you concerned about that? >> no. think of this, you have the transcript, it was julyk 25th, t wasn't until august 29th, the end of august that they even know that money was being withheld. september 11th, the money was sett free.
11:21 pm
what did ukraine do for the money to be set free? nothing. so there is no crime. there is nothing wrong. if this is taxpayer money, i want to make sure the president knows, yeah, is it being spent properly? >> laura: do you think there is a chance they don't call the vote? is there any chance? she said -- more phony pelosi. >> they will go one more week, they will go out for thanksgiving, two more weeks and watch. they will move the continuing resolution to december 20th, the week of december 16th, to december 20th, they will vote on impeachment, then they will try to do usmca or something like that -- >> laura: right before christmas. we accomplished a lot for the american people. >> they have not solved -- give me one problem that they have solved. >> laura: nothing for the g working majority. you summed the timeline well. it's going to be fun. we will call it the 20 days of impeachment or how many o days f impeachment. >> everyone should call their representative. >> laura: they are not working for the people. they are working for themselves. congressman, thanken you for

11:28 pm
that was brilliant. i am so glad they did that. that, since then, this thing has been a pebble that has just gotten more and more and more steam going down a hill. built up, now it's a big boulder going down the hill. >> unlike the earlier leg of the operation against trump with the steele dossier, this was a mysterious thing that came out of the blue and we did not have revelations until a long time after. with the whistle-blower's complaint, we have the transcriptte and we have transparency immediately into it actually happened. and yes, since that time, it's been a catastrophe. >> laura: john, you recently dug up this on marie yovanovitch, the former ambassador to ukraine, who was relieved of her post. in the midst of the 2016 election, and multiple drafts have a question memo prepared for yovanovitch's senate confirmation hearing, the departments ukraine experts urged the incoming ambassador to stick to a simple answer. do you have any comment on hunter biden, the
11:29 pm
vice president's son, serving on the board of burisma, a major ukrainian gas company? the recommended answer for yovanovitch, for questions on hunter biden's role in burisma, i would refer you to the vice president's office. john, draft q&a. do you expect her to be asked about that at the hearing tomorrow? >> i completely do. you saw the deposition, you saw george kent being asked about the concerns he had in 2015. six month ago,ei everybody was sayingns joe biden's story, that is a conspiracy. turns out, joe biden's own people were worried about it, and the only person who doesn't see it as a joe biden problem is joe biden. even the ambassador who was preparing to defend him, so that can refer that to joe biden. it's a joe biden problem. a really remarkable revelation. >> laura: they way they are selling yovanovitch, another in the parade of patriots. if you work in government and you don't like trump's policies, you are a hero. if you support the president,

you are a zero. it's as simple as that. whether it was kent or marie yovanovitch, you hold them up on a pedestal, and whatever they say, it's a damning but solemn day for america. >> it's not a particularly impressive group that is being marched out. with the russia operation, we could say, oh, my goodness, these are serious g men we are looking at, james comey, andrew mccabe. right now, what we are looking m at is entitled bureaucrats who are complaining that they don't get to make the foreign policy of the united states and they are supposed to be selling that to the u.s. power. >> laura: they did not look at the fact that trump was very skeptical about this endless foreign aid. if the americanut people are wih him, and both the democrat party

i helped draft the legislation. i fought for the legislation. i helped get the president to sign the legislation. i was all for it. but what i am not for is the lawlessness. those bikers, they did not commit a felony. they were obstructing.er they harassing the cops. they were interfering with his duties. that is what they were doing. >> bernie, answer this. why did they only charge one and not the other five? i guaranteee you -- tell me why. >> i don't know all the facts of the case. i would bet they only have one, that they have identified one. if you see these guys, they are all masked, they knew they were doing. this is no different than the antifa groups in all these other groups that go out there and act like - animals. listen, if you harass, intimidate, threaten,

obstruct -- >> you said they did not commito a felony. >> laura: hold on. leo, are you saying that if a person at another line of work who happened to be a minority who is surrounded by a bunch of people, maybe they happened to be nonminority, and they are masked people but they are surrounding them, at least temporarily, blocking their way, you would not find that to be threatening? i know a lot of people who would find that threatening. let alone if it is surrounding a law enforcement officer. >> laura, you are a good lawyer. a situationsi is different. bernie has to admit. these are officers. that is the government. it is not the same replay situation. what they did up there was nothing more than first amendment expression. >> laura: oh, please. masks?ar no one should be going around in a mask. >> oh, come on. first amendment rights. it's called expression. >> laura: the masks -- that's nice. thantifa's expression. >> i'm going to wear a mask tomorrow and see if i get arrested for it. thats is called expression.

"the officer was attempting to take the vehicle into possession when the group started to circle their bikes around him." it goes on, "one of the individuals attempted to take the bike from g the officer, at which point the officer took his taser out." >> nothing happened thereafter. nothing happened thereafter. >> laura: it is setting the tone. bernie, i think when you see -- just the general attitude. in certain communities, certain communities, i mean, things seem to be okay. but it's a really sad thing because who is going to go into policing? who wants to go into policing? >> the numbers in recruitment and policing all over the country are down. the cops now, the active cops around the country feel like there is this anti-cop rhetoric. they are not appreciated, they are not supported. that is fact. that is fact. i am not making this stuff up. that is the reality. the local legislators, the mayors, the governors, they've got to support the men and women
