>> tucker: that's it for us tonight. the biden administration is giving us so much to worry about existentially, we kind of missed this, fda issued shocking new warnings associated with vaccine risks. we will tell you what it means tomorrow night. until then, have the best night with a ones you love. we will see you tomorrow. ♪ ♪ >> sean: welcome to "hannity." tonight it is official, the most arrogant, dishonest press secretary in modern american history, she will soon be gone in a little over a week. chief propaganda circle that jen psaki will step down after reportedly negotiating a big new contract with nbc news. former home of lying bryant. anyway, i'm sure psaki will feel right at home at the conspiracy channel network, and coming up, we are going to give her a proper and very special send-off. jen, i hope you will circle back with us and watch later.
also tonight come a disturbing story out of los angeles, the city's far left district attorney is now refusing to pursue validate charges for the man that viciously assaulted comedian, i like dave chappelle, a lot, he is funny as hell, anyway, but he attacked him whid knife. a fake gun, a real knife, a gun that looked like a knife. we will show you that in moments. like many liberal cities come l.a. happily -- there you can see -- happily tolerates violent crime, no bail laws, let's see, defund, dismantle the police, oh, oh, kamala harris praised the l.a.p.d. for defunding some of the l.a.p.d. more straight ahead. first, we do turn to the steps of the u.s. supreme court, now surrounded by a large chain-link fence with big cement barriers erected overnight to protect the building, rightly so in my opinion, need to protect every institution, every monument, every person that serves in this government. this is the right thing to do. hopefully democrats have learned
something from the 574 riots in the summer of 2020 and the capital breached in 2021. by the way, still no answers as to why nancy pelosi and mayor muriel bowser did not use the up to 20,000 troops authorized, required by law by donald trump two days prior, again, as required by law, why didn't they? now many people on the left are very, very angry that individual states and voters could soon decide abortion law for their state. overturning roe v. wade, all the talking points, all the lying, all the hysteria, it's not true. it will not outlaw abortion in the united states. that is the big lie that is being spread by the likes of oh, chuck schumer, who himself threatened two justices, justice gorsuch and kavanaugh on the steps of the u.s. supreme court, screaming you won't know what hit you, among other threats. and as we speak, they are
threatening to burn our system to the ground, as per usual, democrats returning to their fae political tactics, that is mob violence and intimidation. now one liberal group is now organizing an effort to stalk and harass supreme court justices and their families at their homes. this is not okay in this country. but tonight, prominent democrats, they refused to condemn this threatening behavior, just like they refused to ever speak out against the violence from their base in thef 2020. take a look. >> he doesn't care if they are protesting outside the supreme court or outside someone's private residence? >> i don't have an official u.s. government position on where people protest. the reason people are protesting is because women across the country are worried about their fundamental rights that have been law for 50 years, their rights to make choices about their own bodies and their own health care are at risk. that is why people are protesting. they are unhappy. they are scared. >> sean: the message here,
give us what we want or else, is that the message? now yesterday, a seemingly deranged elizabeth warren called supreme court justices right wing extremists who have hijacked the supreme court. she tweeted "we must expand the court to rebalance it and defend our basic rights, including the constitutional right to an abortion." in other words, she wants a court that will do her bidding and her bidding alone. now warns conrad, the congenital liar adam schiff, he also demonized the justices uncalled for court packing, by , senator mike lee of utah has a new book coming out on this new topic, clearly the marching orders have been given. does this mean what, the summer of 2020 and all of the riots, does that mean that season is back? i pray to god no. my prediction is this. if god forbid something does happen like the summer of 2020, 574 riots in america, dozens dead, thousands of cops injured,
and tens of millions of dollars in property damage, and guess what, nobody investigated anything and the left defended it. they were silent when they needed to speak out. their silence was deafening. the only condemn violence and riots that obviously advance their own political narrative. on the show i have and i will continue to condemn all violence. politics should not play a part in that. we should protect our institutions, our elected officials, that is a simple slam dunk for me. just like in 2020, during the blm riots that left dozens dead, thousands injured, all of this happened and how is it nobody covered this? how is it that many on the democratic side were so unwilling to condemn what was obvious? now fake news cnn referred to it, that scene right there, as a fiery but peaceful demonstration. they actually said that. the same year senator rand paul, you might remember, and his wife were nearly trampled by far left protesters after the rnc convention.
left-wing rioters also showed up at senator mitch mcconnell's home, confronted him and his wife. they also harassed of the pair at a local diner. you remember that moment. they also terrorized senator josh hawley's wife and their newborn baby at their front door. they confronted ted cruz and his wife at a restaurant. they also harassed trump's dhs secretary at a restaurant, we played that tape before, because they did not like trump's border wall. in 2018 they stormed the steps of the u.s. supreme court. they pounded on the front door in order to disrupt kavanaugh's nomination and more recently they followed senator kyrsten sinema into a bathroom and filled her going into a stall because she would not kill the filibuster. now they later also took their kayaks out and they went over to joe manchin's house boat because he wouldn't support build back broke america. and while this far left brand of political intimidation rarely works, democrats, they just can't seem to help themselves. but don't worry, there will
never be an investigation into this. take a look. >> you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. >> i like to debate this gentleman, no, if we were in high school i would take him behind the gym and beat the speed 24 out of 10. >> take the plunge. you got to be ready to throw a punch. >> you tell them they are not welcome. >> take note they are not going to let up and they should not. >> i want to tell you, gorsuch, i want to tell you, kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price. >> get up in the face of the congresspeople. >> it does you any good running away from donald trump, i think you need to go back and punch him in the face. >> how dare he say the things he does. of course i want to punch him in the face. >> yes, i have thought an awful
lot about blowing up the white house. >> when was the last time an actor assassinated a president? >> michelle woods says when we , they go higher. no. when they go low, we keep -- >> sean: my favorite was barack obama telling this guy mr. burgess, put mr. burgess up against sean hannity, he will eat him up. i'm ready. anyway, democrats, mob rule but only when they are on the losing side of an issue. now they are six months away from what could be an election beat down. it is no secret the american people are not happy, rightly so. inflation historically bad, gas prices historically bad, the border worse than ever. the supply chain crisis totally messed up. no one on the world stage or even in this country likes joe biden or respect him and now a massive drop today in the stock market could spell the beginning of a painful and the
recession, as president trump very accurately predicted. joe biden is destroying this great american economy and he is doing it in record time, sadly. >> let me tell you about the stock market. in the stock market goes up, that means jobs. it also means 401(k)s. if you got income if you ever became president with your ideas, you want to terminate my tax -- i will tell you, you will lose half of the companies that have poured in here will leave, they will leave for other places. they will leave and you will have a depression the likes of which you've never seen. >> sean: oh, looks like trump was right again. anyone else in this low gas prices, on record low unemployment and major economic growth? because that is what we got with president trump. i will choose that guy. that guy that calls out fake news for what they are, fake, and makes occasional mean tweets, but gets the job done. i choose him. anyway, now under biden, we get economic turmoil along with a
cognitive mess as a president who blames all of his problems on trump supporters or vladimir putin. yesterday, he called us the most extreme political faction in modern american history. actually, in american history. in response today, former president trump come he reacted. he told foxnews.com "our country is going to hell. the make america great again movement is saving america. my message to joe is there is nothing extreme about energy independence and a secure border. there is nothing extreme about safe cities and the rule of law. there is nothing extreme about parental involvement in their children's education. there is nothing extreme about freedom of speech and freedom of expression. there is nothing extreme about individual states regulating abortion. and sadly, there is an extreme political faction in this country, but they are on the other side of the fence outside the supreme court and inside the walls of 1600 pennsylvania avenue. the most radical government ever elected in the modern era by
far, not even close. here with the reaction from a former senior counselor to president trump, kellyanne conway. also former white house chief of staff mark meadows, reince priebus will toss a coin, who was the better chief of staff, let kellyanne make the final toss. [laughter] kellyanne, we will start with you tonight because president trump was right again. donald trump fought with the press and call them fake news media, et cetera, et cetera. the country was so much better off -- i never thought it would get this bad this fast and i don't think any american did. >> no, they did not. less time it takes to have a baby, sean, they basically unravel these great accomplishments and started to ruin america. look, when the white house, the three of us worked, nobody ever wondered who is the president, who is in charge, and what is he thinking? all of those were assured at every moment. but i have to say something about the montage of lunacy you
treated us to at the beginning of your monologue. it should not be an occupational hazard to work at the united states supreme court as a justice or to be a family member of one of those justices. some of them have small children. i think many of them have spouses. and the threats that are going to their safety, to their lives, are very worrisome. it is american to disagree, to dissent, to protest. it is a crime to threaten people's lives, and worse, and publish their addresses and try to incite the kind of violence we have seen in the past. they are saying roots sent us, referring to the late justice ruth bader ginsburg, she was not for violence like that, she never compelled anybody or invited people to go to folks houses. she and antonin scalia were the best of friends by all accounts. i really hope everyone turns down the temperature in law enforcement gets involved because they are very concerned. but as for these accomplishments, look, everyone knows putin, kim jong un, iran,
xi jinping, they were all at bay when donald trump was in there. gas prices were lower but our morale was higher. the poles included issue sets but also asked about the state of the nation. people are very unhelpful. i think the last time people really had hope was in election day 2016 when they thought there was going to be somebody different doing something differently. and now they are just unraveling. spite is no way to run a country. joe biden thanks donald trump did it. spite is no way to run a country, folks, and that is what we've got. >> sean: so the maga movement according to joe biden, mark meadows, the maga movement is the single greatest danger and most radical group in america? let's see, people that believe in energy independence, secure borders, constitutional on the bench, free and fair trade, peace through strength, so radical, so over-the-top, i never heard such ideas that were that crazy. >> well, listen, sean, kellyanne is exactly right.
when we were in the white house you did not have to guess who was the president of the united states because president donald j. trump was calling the shots, and actually using the maga movement, which is more than just the republican party. that is where joe biden got it wrong. we've got democrats and unaffiliated voters that are part of the maga movement that says they believe that america should be great, we should celebrate the greatness, and with joe biden actually leaves $85 billion worth of weapons to the taliban, that should be condemned, and when they start to politicize the supreme court, as they have done with leaking this document, and ultimately by calls to pack the court and expand the number of justices so that liberal progressives can get their way, it is just not what america is all about, but it is what politics is all about. that is why we should be calling out many of the progressive left
that have an attack on the supreme court. >> sean: brought up the 574 riots in the summer of 2020. we had thousands of dead americans. we had thousands of cops injured, we had billions in property damage. i played the rhetoric. kellyanne referred to it, and the democratic party as a whole, their silence was deafening. almost the entire time. it seems to me that when it comes to criticizing the radical base, and i played comments of prominent democrats and the ones that want to punch donald trump in the face and dream an awful lot about blowing up the white house, nothing ever happens to them but if it was a conservative, if one day sean hannity lost his mind and said something that stupid, i don't think i would ever do another show ever for the rest of my life, and i might have the fbi at my door asking a lot of questions and they might put me in these really nice looking handcuffs that they have. >> well, that is so true, and here is where we are at.
these are the tactics of liberals in america. the good news is, is that i think americans are starting to reject these tactics, and what are the tactics? one is false labeling. they want to call everyone a white supremacist who has a maga hat on, who doesn't think crt should be taught in school, they call parents science deniers because they don't want there to-year-olds and their 5-year-old wearing masks. they call people who don't think boys should compete against girls in sports transphobic. then they moved to deplatform it and they say if you post anything that we don't agree with, you're off of twitter, facebook, instagram. elon musk says basically go jump in a lake, i'm going to take care of twitter. then what do they do? then they resort to violence and it is blm and antifa. the reason why, to answer question, these are the tactics embraced by liberals, and every once in a while, i look at the
rules for radicals, and we have talked about this before, but one of them, in this rules for radicals, to find ways to intimidate, marginalize, and isolate and punish individuals that espouse opinions that you don't agree with. sean, it is embedded in what they believe and how they operate, so this is not a surprise, but i do think americans are starting to have enough of this stuff, and that is why they are going to get killed in november. >> sean: kellyanne, why play chuck schumer threatening gorsuch and kavanaugh, was that a threat? because i think it was. >> yes, it was. as for chuck schumer, why is this old white guy telling me what to do with my body, sean, and how to think? >> sean: that is very woke of you, go ahead. >> it was a threat. >> sean: i know it was a threat. >> he went to work at triton to. by the way, have you noticed there is always cameras
involved? they always have the camera out and then they go which makes you wonder but i think it is all escalating now and it is because of something he said earlier, which is that people are lying about what would happen if, in fact, that opinion holds and roe vs. wade no longer exists. of course abortion will be accessible, people are lying about that and the left benefits from the fact that the majority of americans, when you ask them what did roe vs. wade actually provide, they get it wrong. the democrats love that. people no planned parenthood gets half a billion dollars in taxpayer money, they were caught selling ito tissue and baby body parts, therefore ninth month abortion, tax funded abortion come out as every pro-choicers, anything of one abortion you think is a bad idea, tell us, describe. >> sean: we put up the states in this union that allow abortion up until the moment of birth, then of course we play ralph northam.
let me ask -- yeah, let me ask mark this question. how are they giving out the addresses of supreme court justices? clearly this is all an effort to intimidate them, mark, and maybe make the case, as people like the congenital liar adam schiff and elizabeth warren are suggesting to pack the courts, but my message to conservatives would be never give out the address of any justice, any elected official, anybody that works on the lowest level of government, and if you ever seen anybody in public, leave them the hell alone. say hello if you want, be nice, otherwise leave them alone. >> well, leave them alone and certainly what they are calling on a lot of the left to do and going to protests at some of these justices homes is not only inappropriate, but it is dangerous. listen, we love this country, and being able to protest and express your opinion is something we should be able to
peacefully do. and you can do those in the public square. but to suggest that doxxing someone and giving out their address, this is all about intimidation. this is what the left has mastered, and they continue to master it, and where are the democrats condemning this? when you think of the supreme court, no matter what the makeup of the court has been, is, or will be, you want them to be a neutral arbiter of the truth, and yet what we see our politicians and the left, particularly pushing their agenda, and this leaked document is really in front on the supreme court and that neutrality. >> sean: let me give you the last word, same question, i really now fear for these justices, and i would never want a conservative to ever act in the same way, rents previous. >> oh, never. and i think that is the
difference between republicans, democrats, liberals, and conservatives. live by the golden rule, do unto others as you want done to yourself. the real question, the real issue is that democrats and liberals, kellyanne said, they have taken it too far. they want late-term abortion, they went to taxpayer abortion, and then they said we are not going to tell parents when a 15-year-old girl wants to go after school and have an abortion, that is when parents rose up and parents are rising up all over this country like they did in virginia, they are doing it here, and they are doing it across red states in america and they are calling to question to the courts and the justices are likely to respond. >> sean: all right, thank you all for being with us. we appreciate it. kellyanne, thank you, mark meadows, thank you, and reince, thank you. it is official, jen psaki circling back around the white house for the final time later this month. she is leaving. she is going right there to msdnc. we will show you some of our
favorite circle back moments from the outgoing press secretary. we are kind of honoring her with this. and then later, the man that attacked dave chappelle on stage not facing felony charges when he had a fake gun with a real nice and it. are you kidding me? we will explain. ♪ ♪ ♪ it's the most wonderful time of the year. ♪ claritin provides non-drowsy symptom relief from over 200 indoor and outdoor allergens, day after day. feel the clarity and make today the most wonderful time of the year. live claritin clear.
♪ ♪ >> sean: sadly for people on the left, the jen psaki and are at the white house is officially coming to a close. president biden announced today that karine jean-pierre will become press secretary, replacing psaki. as circle back sack he heads for exit door, let's take a look back at some of her greatest hits and honor her.
>> we've noticed this week your gas prices have gone up, i want to talk to a little bit about like a a lot of it has to do with vladimir putin. no broadly and widely known there was a broadway range of russian disinformation back in 2020. >> migrants from the border to florida and new york in the middle the night. >> well, i'm not sure it is in the middle of the night. as individuals come across the border, they -- if they have symptoms the intention is for them to be quarantined, that is our process. they are not intended to stay for a lengthy period of time. >> will not at a time to the national debt. >> correct, it won't. >> why should americans believe that? >> because it won't. >> it was crystal clear things were not improving. couldn't get dishwashers and furniture's and treadmills delivered on time, not to mention all sorts of other
things, so why -- >> the tragedy of the treadmill that is delayed. last thing i want to do before we get to your questions, i often note i'm going to circle back, hate to disappoint conservative twitter but i'm going to circle back on a number of things as we often do to directly. >> sean: we wish john well, looks like she will fit in perfectly with the conspiracy theorist at msdnc and by the way she is not the only former biden white house staff are headed to liberal nbc news. they used to have lying brian, i saw of dead bodies floating right outside my hotel room. when i was in katrina. the problem was the hotel he was at didn't have flooded streets, so there were no bodies floating. anyway, former vice president, former spokesperson for vice president harris, symone sanders, is debuting a new show on msdnc this weekend and she claims she will not use the show to be a nonstop cheerleader for the biden white house, which would be great because that is what every other show on that network pretty much is.
this despite the fact, by the way, we now know her very first guest. reportedly that will be the first lady, jill biden. anyway, how nice. here with reaction to all of this, former white house press secretary and "outnumbered" cohost katie mcinerney and fox news contributor joe concha's with us. i think i like the early morning flights, don't check for covid because they're not going to be here very long. the putin price hike, putin inflation, the tragedy of the treadmill, we got a lot of winners, kayleigh. >> yeah, you have a lot of winners in the last 48 hours, the fact that president biden says lgbt children will be segregated from heterosexual children and when jen psaki was pressed for an example she said well, there are discriminatory laws. what state has these discriminatory laws? well, these are the youth of the law. not an answer. on the leaks that happened, she was asked about that, she
refused to condemn it, asked about violence at the justices houses, protests at the justices houses, to which she officially condoned legal activity because you are not allowed to do that . called it a peaceful protest. twice asked about the legitimacy of the supreme court opinion, would not answer whether they would accept that opinion. sean, 48 hours. depends on, so too will karine jean-pierre, a compliant press. i can tell you there would be a lot of shouting. >> sean: you know from experience. you were behind that podium not -- by the way, i don't think i would be very good at that job because the odds of me holding my tongue and keeping my patience are probably next to zero, joe concha, i think you probably agree with me. but think about it, i really mean this, it is not a joke when i say i think she will fit in perfectly because msdnc went for three long years lying about
trump-russia collusion and the russian dossier, christopher steele, they were dead wrong, they never apologized, they never retracted, they never corrected their error. the same people that immediately declared hunter biden's real laptop to be russian disinformation, in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election, i think she fits in perfectly there. >> first, sean, let me address you have, and probably kayleigh, as well, amnesia, forget everything but the grudge. you would not be very good at that job. kayleigh was able to be more disciplined. >> sean: if i was a member of the walk mob, you would be in trouble for saying that but it's okay. my feelings are not hurt. >> thank you. jen psaki leaves the white house for msdnc, which you mentioned, yesterday starts most ubiquitous gas called the founding fathers, we are quoting here come "racist jerk faces," and zero pushback, by the way.
the aforementioned network where joy reid claims the media only cares about russia's insidious invasion of ukraine because white people are involved. this is the same prime time host to call the supreme court "a pro just white christian court" because justice thomas, just a sort of mayor, they don't actually exist. she goes to a network where its highest rated host gets a six day weekend from the network while working one day a week, and ms. psaki replaced with -- >> sean: conspiracy theorist rachel maddow. in fairness to her, this is a really hard job, i've been doing it the longest. in prime time and cable. and i've been doing radio 35 years, three hours a day now for the last however many years. fairness to her, an hour a week is really tough. >> it can become a right, because you are on what, five hours a week on this network, 2. as we mentioned, karen
jean-pierre, she takes over, she is married to a cnn political correspondent, by the way, no conflict there. in the end, jen's legacy will be that she was tasked with defending the indefensible and that means she said spending additional trillions of dollars would actually reduce the deficit and inflation, no, she said with a straight face that republicans were the ones who wanted to defund the police, no, she claims the catastrophe at the border is because of donald trump and thought walls don't work, okay. she also declared with zero evidence and the most promising way possible, i think that is her most notable attribute, if you want to call it that, being pious, that peter doocy has his questions written for him, never in a thousand years. never. she is going to be celebrated of course, as like the greatest press secretary ever, sean, because when you have a president with 33% approval and the white house communications team has a severe messaging problem that she led, you know, in the end, the numbers and the dubious statements say otherwise
in terms of when we are talking about the legacy of jen psaki. >> sean: let me ask you both the same question. who should i feel more sorry for, peter doocy, because he is not going to have jen psaki to battle with anymore, or karine jean-pierre, who is taking over and is going to have to deal with peter doocy's tough questions. and kayleigh, who do you feel more sorry for? >> oh, certainly karine jean-pierre, you know, i watched part of one of her briefings today when she was filling in, and it seems to me that circle back, that mantra might be replaced with "i don't have anything for you," because i counted in the video i was watching 21 times in one briefing. 21 times, karine jean-pierre said some rendition of "i don't know," "i don't have anything for you." i can tell you one person who will not let you get away with that -- circle people, jacqui heinrich, peter doocy. >> sean: well said. >> only two reporters in the room who will follow up. that was very hard for seven to
handle, we will see how karine handles it. >> sean: jen psaki leaves karine jean-pierre, number one on the list will be how to deal with fox news, peter doocy, and jacqui heinrich, i guarantee you. that is the number one bit of advice i would bet psaki is going to leave with her successor. joe? >> i think you are right, sean. at least the hashtag #psakivon, we don't have to see unless she says something provocative on msnbc. when you watch jen psaki, she is awkward, and when she does not have somebody to spar with and she won't on msnbc, i don't think she is going to be this big success people think she is going to be. i think in the end, she needs a foil and she will not have one there, save the tape, that is all i have to say. >> sean: save the tape, i agree with you and you should have your own media show. kayleigh has her own show, she is doing great. thank you both. coming up, soft on crime l.a.
d.a. and their office says the man that attacked comedian dave chappelle on stage is not going to be charged with assault with a deadly weapon. he had a knife in a gun that looked like a gun, it wasn't a real gun but it was a real knife, why is he not being charged? leo 2.0 terrell, gregg jarrett, they will try and sort fact from fiction on that madness straight ahead. ♪ ♪

you see the knife. that is a deadly weapon. that looks like a real gun. but the attacker is just being charged with more misdemeanors. according to audios from the show's aftermath by tmz, chappelle thanked the security team, probably just being funny, adding, i felt good, my friends broke his arm, the guy was tying to kill him, could have killed . meanwhile, the incident raised concerns from other celebrity's, comedian how we mandel calling it "the beginning of the end for comedy." we cannot give into people that act like this, you can't, ever. anyway, here with reaction, fox news contributor leo 2.0 terrell, fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. leo, i'm going to start with you, you know i trained and mixed martial arts, i do a lot of situational self-defense preparation for moments like what we've seen with chris rock or in this case dave chappelle, i think two of the funniest comedians out there. for example, i have said to people, they think hannity
doesn't know what the hell he is talking about when it comes to martial arts. at close range, if i'm dealing with a gun, that is pointed at me right here, where i can go like this and strip it, literally break the guys finger, strip the gun, step back, i would rather do that. if someone pointed at my forehead, okay, i will duck, i will push it up, jammed it back, break his finger, and jam it into them. then i will strip it, step back, tap it, racquet, do four over three there. someone put a gun in my back, i will get -- something we do regularly. a knife to me in the hands of somebody," are fighting come only talking about" or, not distance, i would rather deal with a firearm that i would them knife. that knife could have killed david chappelle, and you attack an innocent person, you deserve to get the crap kicked out of you and he is lucky it was not
worse, in my view. >> i'll tell you, sean, it is not safe to live in los angeles and it is dangerous for comedian to perform. let's not forget the will smith situation. no criminal action taken against will smith. we have a district attorney who is not a district attorney, he is a public defender for criminals. how in the world can he dismiss this case? let the felony charges fly all the way to court and let the judge determine if there is enough evidence. what you saw on that video, you see an attempt to inflict bodily injury for an individual. are felony charges, but we have a district attorney who is immune from any type of prosecution himself. we have one month to get a recall on the ballot against this public defender. and one final point, sean. the problem here is this, that he punted this case to the city attorney for a misdemeanor. that city attorney is running for mayor. he is not going to do a darn
thing because he is not going to try to wreck his chances for running for mayor. we have no law and order in los angeles. >> sean: you know, gregg, when i'm talking about close quarter situational self-defense, you know, a knife is one of the deadliest weapons somebody can use if they get the right place, if they get an artery, if they get you in the right place, you will bleed out, you will likely die. they stab you in the heart, you are dead, nothing anybody can do to bring you back. how could you not refer to that as a deadly weapon? >> well, it's hard to comprehend how this is not treated as a serious felony. is obviously an assault and a battery, both of which are felonies, but because he had a deadly weapon, a fake gun that triggers a knife, dave chappelle could have been, under certain circumstances, killed in front of a crowd of thousands of people. look, this is symptomatic of an
ultra progressive district attorney, george gascon, whose policies have led every category of crime to skyrocket, homicides are up almost 40%, shootings up 70%, armed robberies, thefts, eating's, you name it, they have all gone up considerably, and the people of los angeles, my hometown, i am there frequently, they are angry, incensed, they are fed up, and thoughts the recall election, and the people who are backing it, guess who they are? the hollywood elites are now financing the recall to get gascon out of office because los angeles is now a pro-criminal paradise, and everybody there is a victim because of this district attorney doesn't care about victims of violent crime, he only cares, as leo said, about helping the criminals. so the hollywood elite has finally decided, gee, this was a bad idea.
these are the same people that cheered on the blm protest that were violent, as well as the deformed police, and everybody in los angeles is against gascon. law enforcement, some d.a. staff, the los angeles county sheriff is against him. he will not survive a recall if it gets on the ballot. >> sean: well said, both of you, and you know what, we got to protect anybody, any public figure. dave chappelle could have been stabbed to death that night. that was a deadly weapon. this guy has got to go. thank you both. when we come back, huge update in john durham's investigation into the russia probe. not one but two massive rulings in his favor. jim jordan and jason chaffetz break it down next.
fanduel and draftkings, two out of state corporations making big promises to californians. what's the real math behind their ballot measure for online sports betting? 90% of profits go to the out of state corporations permanently. only eight and a half cents is left for the homeless. and in virginia, arizona, and other states, fanduel and draftkings use loopholes to pay far less than was promised. sound familiar? it should. it's another bad scheme for california.
♪ ♪ >> sean: and tonight we have major updates and special counsel john durham's long investigation into the origins of the russia probe. he now wants the jurors to hear about the intersection of clinton campaign lawyer michael sussmann's work -- remember he is the one that is charged here, against president trump, and with that, christopher steele and his dirty disinformation dossier that hillary paid for. now during a pretrial hearing, one of durham's lawyers argued that the jurors should be made aware of a july 2016 meeting between sussmann and steele, calling it a probative -- calling it probative and relative end. this came on the heels of the presiding judge ruling in terms favor to review dozens of the records, which were withheld on claims of attorney-client privilege by hillary clinton's 2016 campaign to see if they were improperly concealed. here are the reaction,
congressman jim jordan and fox news contributor jason chaffetz. jim, i will start with you. now durham wants jurors on this trial to know that clinton's attorney michael sussmann in 2016, they went about this intersection of his work against former president trump and that of author of the debunked steele dossier, and the judge rightly pointed out, this information was leaked to the press, can hardly claim attorney-client privilege, which i thought was a powerful statement by the judge. >> yeah, durham wants them to know the truth, it was a conspiracy. think about it, sean, your christopher steele, tech executive to create the lie, fusion gps who peddled the lie to the press. you have michael sussmann, who takes the lie and hangs it to the fbi, again not just anyone at the fbi, but the chief counsel fee of any of marc elias and the clinton campaign overseeing the whole operation.
it was false, it was garbage, but it was a conspiracy to keep donald trump out of the white house and durham is onto them and wants to make sure the court has the truth and the fact, plain and simple. >> sean: you've commented recently on foxnews.com about a lot of this, jason chaffetz, and you mentioned to me in a number of conversations, the name mark kelly is. what does he have to do with this? >> well, marc elias -- >> sean: i'm sorry, elias. >> yeah, the way this works, the dnc and hillary clinton paid a law firm, in this case perkins coie, and the person who is overseeing this is marc elias, working for him is this michael sussmann. and what they do and the reason they do it is to be able to claim attorney-client privilege and that you can't see it, but millions of dollars are flowing. i think one of the interesting things that will start with this case, which starts a week from monday, on the 16th, is how much
money was actually flowing and what was going on, because then the representation through michael sussmann goes to jim baker, as jim jordan just pointed out, whose general counsel, he's got the highest position at the department of justice, has this meeting, and fails to tell them that he's actually working for hillary clinton and the dnc. they start this probe. they have been involved and engaged in this thing, but it is a way to hide the money. it is a way to move the money, and then hide it back. but the judge so far, sean, has actually made two really good positive rulings. >> sean: i've complained bitterly about how long it is taking durham. jim jordan, are you confident that he now knows the real truth about what happened? >> i think so, but the point jason just made, sean, i think it is interesting because again, sussmann doesn't go to just anyone, he emailed to jim baker the day before and says "hey, jim, i have some important
information i want to pass along to you." he wasn't just doing that out of the kindness of his heart, he was working for the clinton campaign -- >> sean: lied about that. >> yeah, he lied about that, but i think the fbi had to know. i think jim baker had to know. he gets an email from sussmann, sussmann is his friend and he knows he works at perkins coie, how did he not know this was all part of the clinton campaign? we will see will that goes. but overall, i think john durham is certainly being thorough and trying to get to the bottom of this, and we have certainly appreciated his work, just hope it happens quickly. >> sean: last 20 seconds, jason. >> well, it had to have happened quickly, but i just want truth and justice to prevail. i'm glad it is going to a jury trial, and i'm glad the judge is allowing -- >> sean: you think durham knows the story? do you think durham has the complete story, real quick? >> i do, and what we need exposed is where all the money was flowing. follow the money. >> sean: thank you both. more "hannity" next. ♪ ♪
