9:00 pm
[drop me in the water ...] secure mobile banking from navy federal credit union... our members are the mission. we will say good night, tucker is up next in d.c. and we will see you back here tomorrow night at 7:00 >> tucker: it is election night and many states and we already have a race to call in the state of florida. big show ahead about first chief national correspondent ed henry is live for us in miami. >> good to see you. the polls have just closed here in the sunshine state and fox news this projecting that congressman ron desantis is going to win the republican primary for governor. this is a big race, the trump factor front and center.r. we are projecting that it will be former congressman adam putnam, he's currently the state agriculture commissioner. back in june when fox news had a big debate between the two
9:01 pm
republican contenders, desantis was failing big time. we then saw him take a double digit lead in recent days at close of it, putnam had outraised him in the department, and there had been some expectations. maybe putnam could pull this out, but we are projecting just the opposite. ron desantis, a key ally of president trump will win this republican nomination and primary battle. there are three big candidates on the democratic side that we are not ready to recall, it is still too close to call. we will be back later this all power as more results come in. >> tucker: amazing, decisive. as you see, polls have closed in and it voting is still underway in arizona and oklahoma. voters there will decide a series of critically important primary contests and help define the fall midterm elections. we will have more on those races straight ahead.al
9:02 pm
at first a lot going on in washington. lawmakers grilled bruce ohr and on capitol hill today. they say ohr played a central role intoas the 2016 2016 trump campaign. catherine herridge has been covering the story since the very beginning and she joins us tonight. >> the closed-door deposition lasted seven hours with the consensus among republican lawmakers. the justice department official bruce ohr told the fbi there were issues with the trump dossier and its author produced -- former british spy, christopher steele. but the national security court was kept in the dark at when it a surveillance warrant for trump campaign. that does not line up with other witnesses. former fbi lawyer lisa page and glenn simpson by the dnc and campaign for the anti-trump research. with more than two decades of government service, the portfolio was gangs and drugs
9:03 pm
and not russia. the 2016 document shows or begins a back channel between fbi officials and steel after they fired him as a confidential source. earlier today, ohr ignored fox's questions. >> mr. ohr, who authorize or bypass of the fbi? were you acting alone? how did your wife benefit from the dossier contract? did you have a conflict of interest? mr. ohr, will you take our questions?ls >> lawmakers also told reporters today that ohr had a complex because his wife nellie ohr was part of the firm that put together the.ca comic dossier and specifically did russia research. >> tucker: mollie hemingway federalist joins us tonight. do we know if the fbi was aware that has wife worked at fusion gps? >> that information should have been made available to the court
9:04 pm
and it was not made available to the court. we still need to know what the fbi knew and when they knew it. >> tucker: do we have a finalwe answer to the question on to what extent the steel dossier allowed the spine to continue? >> we know that the steele dossier was used to secure a warrant to surveilled a camp trp campaign associate. t and that's pretty explosive information. when we started learning about this, the idea and the idea it would have been weaponized, it was pretty explosive.as and now we all have to acknowledge that. >> tucker: bruce ohr seems like the critical link. he's not a russia expert and his main role seems to be facilitating connection between federal law enforcement agency and his wife's firm, but the court never learned that. why is that not rotten, why is
9:05 pm
that not corrupt? >> bruce ohr was not at the fbi, he was funneling the information and he was funneling the information after the fbi had claimed that they had terminated christopher steele as a source. they claimed that theyth terminated him and that they would not use his information because they realize that he had been leaking to the media contrary to what his arrangement was with the fbi but they still manage to use his information. >> tucker: so you could be the fiercest trump upon it politically and still have grave concerns as a civil libertarian and american about the way this was conducted, couldn't you? >> in fact your feelings about trump should have nothing to do with your feelings -- >> tucker: so where are the civil libertarians in this? >> that's a very good question and something that's very important because of this could be done against a major presidential campaign and it certainly could be done against other people. there are so many questions that need to be answered, perhaps there is a good explanation for why this all went down but the
9:06 pm
idea that everyone should be forced to accept it's okay without getting answers to basic questions about why the investigation started and when it started, when it officially started and when it unofficially started, and what was used. we already know something very bad which was that hillary clinton funded andte created the research document which was used by the fbi to secure a wiretap. >> it's almost unbelievable.on republic republican congressman mark meadows said the fbi and doj have developed a creative work around in order to get surveillance warrants on the people they want to target. >> we know that some people at the department of justice and fbi actually gave information to the media. then the stories were reported, then they used those reports to justify further investigation. that's like saying, we are going to incriminate on one hand and be the jury on the other, it just doesn't work that way.
9:07 pm
be one so i should note, it still murky, a lot of this is murky. but the fbi appears to be pushing back and telling fox news that this is actually incorrect and that's not the way they went about getting warrants. what's your view on this? >> we are getting different reports about this. we do know from the general inspector report that there isor an epidemic of leaking at the fbi. this is something that was so severe that the tig spun it off into a different investigation because it was so bad that people with security clearances were having dozens of contacts with supporters. also anyone with a pulse could figure out if they were paying attention the last two years that there were so many leaks of classified information, whether iten was about the dossier or te briefing of the dossier to the president or about other matters such as mike flynn's conversations. these were all leaked to the media and we do know that we havekn a very strange problem.ea i think we need to know about what the purpose is behind all these leaks. i think also what we do know of
9:08 pm
the phase application, media reports were used in that phase application. media reports that resource to the creator of the russia dossier himself. weat should have a very high standard for what we take to a pfizer court and how we use in this report. >> tucker: he would think any sensible judge would laugh at an application that contained a report from buzzfeed news or yahoo or any news organization. it's the fbi and the doj. they should have their own right? >> they also mention an opinion story from "the washington post" which might not meet theth standard you hope for an application. >> tucker: the closer you get the less impressive it is. richard goodstein served as an advisor to both bill and hillary clinton and survived and he joins us tonight. richard, we have established that the left has been pretty clear on it, they don't have any problems since the civil libertarians have left. they don't have any problems with the fact that the administration spied on its campaign. the next election is coming up,
9:09 pm
a year and a half from now you will be right ina the middle of the primaries from the 2020 election. would you be okay with the trump administration authorizing a wiretap or surveillance of aides to the leading democratic candidate during the primaries?r >> no. >> tucker: that would bother you? you would become a civil libertarian again? >> there is no spying. you are insulting your audience and everybody. there was somebody, carter page who is identified by u.s. intelligence and someone who is an agent of the soviets, who was 1 of 5 people that donald trump said were her his foreign policy advisors. >> tucker: you are blowing my mind here because i've been on this for the last year and a half. i thought there was a pfizer warrant to spy on him. but there wasn't? >> of course there was. >> tucker: isn't that warrant for spying on someone? >> it wasn't really spying.
9:10 pm
what they were doing was authorizing -- you are trying to parse something that's not -- george papadopoulos bragged about the fact that months before anyone had ever heard of carter page in our world, about the fact that the russians had dirt on hillary clinton, he bragged on that. and it was a very alarming u.s. intelligence. >> tucker: was papadopoulos charge for espionage? >> he pled guilty to a felony. >> tucker: to espionage? oh, to lying to federal agents like martha stewart. how is that not spying? if you get a warrant to spy on someone and surveilled thatur person, maybe it's justified. you are arguing a different point. my point is to say it's not spying is of course the definition of dishonesty. >> the the trump people insistt carter page was not working the campaign as of the time that
9:11 pm
pfizer warrant was authorized. and only republican judges authorized it time and time again. speak >> tucker: but you would be cool if the trump administration got its department of justice to get aus pfizer warrant to not spy but surveilled for perfectly good reason on aids to the leading democratic candidate. so you are not going to complain about that when it happens. >> tucker, you don't have enough time in the show, not just my segment, for me to go through all of the elements that we see as collusion related. >> tucker: who has been charged with collusion? anyone? oh, nobody has yet. >> nobody has been charged. vander salute hadn't been charged when you knew his name. papadopoulos hadn't been charged when he knew his name. all the russians charged by
9:12 pm
mueller -- >> tucker: this is big, this can spirit see, i didn't realize part of it was taking place in aruba. >> you can joke about it -- >> tucker: i think this is an inherently a joke but a bad joke, a sad joke. i want to get back to first principles here because trump won't always be president. we will have other presidents god willing. at that point, is it okay to behave like this if trump is not the target? does any of this bother you at all? the obama people did something that's never been done that i'm aware of, they spied on a rival presidential campaign and that's okay with you. but would it be okay if the trup dated to the next guy? >> they didn't spy on a rival campaign, they spied on a single russian agent. you think that's a joke. >> tucker: no, i think you are accusing an american citizen of a crime for which he has not
9:13 pm
been charged. so i believe that between you and your libel lawyer to sort out. but keep in mind of the person you accused of being a russian agent has denied it and neveran been charged with it and there's no evidence that he was. and a fellow american, i would argue. >> if he comes after me for libel, truth is in the defense and i think i have the whole intelligence community of the united states backing me up on that one. >> tucker: there is noie intelligence community. and that is very troubling. the question is, -- >> bruce ohr should have had a public hearing. it would be like benghazi, and would backfire in their space. >> what does that have to do with it? >> especially after 11 and a half hours, it was shown by trey gowdy's own admission that he hadn't done anything wrong and
9:14 pm
that's why they don't have bruce ohr publicly. >> tucker: i think that as many of m these hearings asto possible ought to be public. i think the rationale for spying on an american citizen and destroying his life and accusing him of colluding with a foreign power, i think we should bring transparency because i'm losing faith that our system is on the level. i'm beginning to think it'sth rotten, and the people who run it are corrupt. and they don't have my interest as a taxpayer and citizen in mind. take trump out of this. this is scary stuff that trumped it.n' let's be totally honest, you shouldn't do stuff like thatik because it's a terrible precedent. > you as a presidential p campaign, you should not be having our son and campaign manager and son-in-law meet with the russians to get dark. r you shouldn't be encouraging russians to break u.s. law to still good from your opponent. that's what shouldn't bepp
9:15 pm
happening. and if the democrat data, shame on them. >> tucker: the hillary clinton campaign and the dnc paid for information from the russian government to use against their opponent. there is no debate about that. but i don't even care about that. i want to know, what the nexts election is going to be like. i don't want the trumpdo administration to spy on rival campaigns, but you and the lunatics on the left havemp created a precedent that will allow them to, and future presidents to do that. i don't want to live in that country, that's all i'm saying. and i don't think you do either. >> we have a fundamental disagreement, you tend to belittle what they did and i feel they undermined. >> tucker: richard, thank you. cnn had a huge story that turned out to be hugely false, but they are not embarrassed. why is that? also fox is tracking the primaries in three states. there are two races that fox news has projected in

9:20 pm
>> tucker: cnn is engulfed in >> tucker: cnn is engulfed in something of a scandal tonight about ethics and accuracy that getsnd right to the heart of wht they do. michael cohen 'lawyer lanny davis now claims that he fed the story to cnn. watch. >> chris, tonight, sources with knowledge tell myself that michael cohen claims that then candidate donald trump knew in advance about the june 2016t meeting at trump tower in which russians were expected to offerh his campaign dirt on hillary clinton. crucially, these sources tell us that cohen is willing to make that assertion to robert mueller. irt should say one of his attorneys, lanny davis, declined
9:21 pm
to comment and i know chris, you are speaking to rudy giuliani, the president's attorney. i believe his response to you. >> tucker: and so on 26, cnn said with a straight face that f lanny davis did not comment on the story, that was a lie.ie not only did he comment, he was a main source and he admits that now. he also says he can't actually corroborate most of the story. >> you said that michael cohen wasn't present with the meeting with don jr. and the trump tower meeting. that's an incredibly important issue. he also said michael: testify truthfully to the senate committeete and according to the chair and vice chair, he told him that he had no knowledge of the meeting until he saw it in the press. how can both of those things be true? either he knew about the meeting or he didn't know about the meeting. >> well, i think the reporting of this story got mixed up inhe the course of a criminal investigation. we were not the source of the story.
9:22 pm
>> tucker: keep in mind, the network slogan is, facts first. not tonight. cnn seemed unembarrassed by these revelations and are standing by the story, whatevert that means. they have additional stories supporting this story but not the lawyers standing at the center of the story who of course would know. glenn joins us now. what do you make of the story? >> i find it to be -- and obviously, this is one of the most humiliating and scandalous moments on the trump saga. i've beene on your show to talk about a lot of these humiliating moments and this might be one of the worst ones yet. keep in mind in addition to all the facts thatu you just said , after lanny davis went on cnn to anderson cooper and admitted that everything cnn have beenea breathlessly hyping was true, was actually false.
9:23 pm
including that he was there at the trump meeting. "the new york post" and "washington post" listen to that and said, wait a minute. we independently confirmed cnn story based upon not our anonymous source and our anonymous source was lanny davis was now saying the whole thing is false.se they are now doing what they should have done which is they retracted the story and out at their own source. is that the anonymous sources lanny davis and they now retract it because he says that's false. cnn couldn't do that because they lied to the entire world. they said as you just played that they tried to get a hold of lanny davis and he refused to comment, when in fact of course lanny davis was also their source and they don't want to admit that they lied to the world. so they can't retract the story and they can't admit they lied to so they are just continuing to stick to what everybody knows is a lie but not many people care because a lot of people think that it was done for the right political agenda. >> tucker: so it seems that kind of stunning that they could continue to claim that they are notim retracting, and there is a
9:24 pm
pretext for not retracting it according to them, which is that they have other sources who are telling them that this happened. wouldn't lanny davis as the personal attorney at the man ofe the center of the story be kind of the most basic of all the sources? >> it makes no sense. theoretically it's possible i guess, in the most theoretical sense, that michael cohen is telling wolf blitzer or whoever on the side of something that he's been having his lawyer go and deny witches, i do have dirt on trump. but of course that didn't happen. what other sources could cnn possibly have given what the claim is? the claim is, michael cohen intends to go and tell robert mueller that he was there when trump got advanced knowledge of theto trump tower meeting. if a lanny davis is saying that
9:25 pm
his own client has denied that under oath of congress twice both last year and after the cnn meeting, what other source could possibly be in a position to dispute that? ludicrous. >> so very quickly. you're almost out of time but, give us some context.at it doesn't seem to give viewers the chance to explain what this is about. >> that to me as a real issue, journalists rightly demand transparency from powerful and institutions, but now can cnn have any property to do that. they say talk to our p.r. spokesperson who then refuses to answer any questions. they have zero credibility if they don't provide transparency themselves. >> that is the standard. thank you very much for that. it looks like hillary clinton's

>> tucker: lunatics and dumb people in washington have wasted the last two years of your life in a frenzy over russia's suppose that influence our elections. lost in the hyperbole and commercial in and hysteria has been a real story, china's active pervasive and ongoing espionage against our country. most of the press seems completely uninterested in that but we are interested. now according to a new report by "the daily caller," a chinese owned company successfully hacked hillary clinton's email. she spent real-time information
9:31 pm
as secretary of state, kind of a shocking story.ce dr. michael pillsbury, the single best book on that subject and he joins us tonight. dr. pillsbury, thank you for coming on. so we have a story about thiss that seems solidly sourced. my question to you is broader. does this seem possible? it doesn't seem likely, doesn't shock you? >> it explains a lot, frankly.on hillary clinton had a lot of problems with the chinese and they often seem to know her moves and advanced. advance. i know she was criticized by the blind lawyer, she negotiated his freedom and he was abandoned at a critical moment of the process in the hospital where he was and the chinese began to retreat him quite badly. if this story is true and it's a single intelligent source telling the story, and if the chinese could in fact read her emails, over four years, this will cause us to rewrite history
9:32 pm
of the pivot. remember president obama want to the pivot to asia, doing more about china? if the chinese were reading the secretary of state's emails for for years, it looks a lot different. and i was shocked by the story. it's quite surprising to me that it's taken three years to come out. the story seems to be saying that, fbi agent scott intelligence that hillary's emails were being copied to a chinese company and they went over and warned no less than sally gates herself. and she wouldn't do anything a about it. then, when call comey testified in public, he knew if this stort today is accurate, and he left h that out of his testimony. here is a bag reference in his book to things that are still classified. but i just checked tonight,
9:33 pm
tucker. the word china in the index of jim comey's book, there's nothing there at all. >> this is one of those stories that, if it is true, and it looks like it is true, could be a scandal in the next level. another story that we are not hearing a lot about but i think it's fascinating, senator dianne feinstein serves on the senate intelligence committee, employed as suspected chinese spy is a personal aide and a driver for two decades. so why wouldn't that be a member of the senate intel committee employing someone working for chinese intelligence? >> it surprising and a bit ironic. because senator feinstein has been quite outspoken for more than 20 years, as a champion of china. when she was mayor of san francisco, shanghai was the sister city. she visited there a lot with her husband who does business in china. soso this amounts to spying on a friend of china.
9:34 pm
senator feinstein is not the hawk on china, she's been a critic. she actually supported this so-called reform to crack down on chinese investment in america. she's one of the original cosponsors of the bill. so if the chinese were worried, she slowly beginning to get more concerned about china, that would have a spy for 20 years. she says it was just her driver and he had no access to classified information, but he could certainly listen in on what the senator was doing with china for 20 years. this is another example that is going to cause us, i'm afraid, tucker, to rethink what's been going on in u.s.-china relations the last ten or 20 20 years. >> tucker: we are so naive. >> they may have outsmarted us even more than it seems in my book. >> tucker: it seems like it. thank you for your perspective. we will take youil to florida where we will bring you a live report from the election in progress.

9:40 pm
see that. not to hurt anyone's feelings but because it's important, telling obvious truths isn't a bigotry, it's essential. otherwise we will all go insane, so we should be honest. this is a fox news alert. if polls havee closed in the state of florida and voting is underway and a handful of other primaries including oklahoma ann arizona. ed henry has been following all of this from his base in miami tonight and he joins us now.>> >> tucker, we may have a big surprise in the democratic for primary governor, and also may be a surprise on the republican side. ron desantis is a congressman with the the presidents endorst has been the primary by a lot. fox news projecting victory there and adam putnam has actually conceded. bottom line, and several of these races we t are seeing the, power of the presidents coat tails.ng including the power of a president's tweet. that's exactly what we saw in the primary for florida governor. ron desantis beating out adam
9:41 pm
putnam and what we specifically saw as a dramatic turn around. in mid-june, the mason-dixon turnaround had putnam beating dissent us by about 13 points. then you see the president tweeted his endorsement of desantis. by late july, disanto's was up by 11 points, a 27-point swing. he still lost big tonight. then the a trunk factor in the primary tonight. republican jeff flake retired in large part because he is at odds with the agenda and couldn't get reelected. he endorsed congresswoman martha mcsally but said she doesn't want the endorsement because she sent competing with kelli ward and joe arpaio. kyrsten synema how to pickup opportunity for democrats which is why mick sally has been making the case that if she wins she could be a firewall for the
9:42 pm
president against liberals like elizabeth warren in the senate. fox news also projected rick scott easily winning the g.o.p. for a senate seat against incumbent democrat bill nelson who may be in more trouble than democrats originally anticipated. interesting, because there are some big issues here in the sunshine state. red tides killing marine life. toxic blue-green algae messing with the water and air quality. the fate of the trump agenda is kind of the dominant issue, but as you know, tip o'neill famously said all politics are local. i mentioned the democratic race and look at the numbers, almost 80% in. when grandma is about 31.9% for the democratic race for governor. andrew gillam who has the support for bernie sanders on the socialist side at 33%, he's actually winning. he may get the nomination to face ron desantis, this big trump ally, for the governor here in florida to succeed rick scott, the republican senator. so you may have someone more onc
9:43 pm
the socialist side of facing roc desantis. fictive elements here. >> tucker: ed henry, thank you for that. we will be tracking the results all night. first an update from south africa south africa. according to news reports, the south after government has withdrawn its firm redistribution bill more than a week after we first day of the story. they hated our segmentnt and alo hated president trump's response, he tweeted out our response. they recounted not being criticized particularly from america. but politicians in south africa are still planning to seize land without compensation on racial grounds. in fact it seems to be underway. south african media reportsaf tt one of the first farmers on the list is a man called johann steen camp, he owns a game preserve. now apologists for thew south african government, and there are many in our media, say the port of seizing land is
9:44 pm
historical injustice. it does not apply, the stein camp didn't steal his land from anyone, in fact, he said he thought it legally 21 years ago. that's significant because 21 years ago, apartheid was over and nelson mandela was thein government at the time. but the government is taking away from him anyway. liberals support this, barack obama supports it and so does theresa may. so it is pretty much our entire ruling class and the news media. they are all in favor of collective punishment based on race and that's the real story here. much bigger than what's happening in south africa. the west response to it, it's terrifying. chuck schumer wants to rename a senate office building after his colleague, john mccain. why? dana perino joins us after the break with her view on that. it is interesting. ♪

>> >> tucker: you know, it wasn't that long ago, exactly ten years ago that a lot of democrats and their faithful allies in the press corps were slandering john mccain as a racist, a radical, a right wing buffoon. how dare he run against barack obama? that was there. then. now they want to name buildings after him. >> i will be introducing a resolution to change the name of the russell building to the mccain building. but it need not be the only way we own we honor senator mccain. we can honor him by trying to carryy out the principles he lived by. >> tucker: it you know, you wouldn't want to question this'e
9:50 pm
sincerity of chuck schumer. but dana perino joins us tonight with her view of it. >> dana: hi tucker. >> tucker: i love these moments of comedy as i would call it, but i'm also starting to wonder what this reaction is about. >> dana: it is sincere but it's also very politically clever on behalf of senator schumer.oh democrats loved it john mccainin when he was going against president bush in the 2,000 campaign. they could not stand him when they were against obama but they left him again when they were against the foil president trump. and richard russell russell, there are three buildings but that's where the senior senators are. it's named after a guy that after today, absolutely he would
9:51 pm
question whether or not the building would be named after i it, based on today's standards. the other thing was thatha senator schumer was insured that the republicans were going to be divided on this issue. today a bipartisan group was put together by senator mcconnell talking about a range of issues and ways that the senate could honor mccain. the renaming of the building was not on it. senator schumer was asked if mcconnell was renaming the building.he are you for renaming this building? and they will face two things. one is a distraction, they would rather talk about the accomplishments of the trump administration and the republican congress. also, do you think that they want to get on the record talking about this when president trump is watching? and you just heard and henry's report, you could win by 27

points in a primary. >> tucker: it's a totally fair point. i wonder just as a matter of justice, there was one matter of the house who ten years ago compared john mccain to george wallace and try to tie into the 1963 birmingham church bombing that killed those little girls.o shouldn't those who said that apologize at some point? >> dana: i know you have that on your monologue last night on your tribute to john mccain and talked about the hypocrisy of it all. i admire politics and i think senator schumer has very few cards to play especially on then biggest issue of this and that's the nomination of brett kavanaugh to the supreme court. he can count votes just like anyone else, but there's one thing that's democrats really know how to do and that is to inject something like this into an election cycle to try to hurt republicans. >> tucker: that's a good point. [laughs] it's very true. >> dana: that building should be named after john mccain, but i think because it will
9:53 pm
become political, that's probably not one of the ways that they will honor him. >> tucker: i think you're probably right. that's why dana has two shows, 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. eastern each night. can't say i've ever missed one. thank you. american college student ottoer warmbier returned from a north korean prison in a fatal. now his parents are taking action on a possible sanction against north korea. his father joins us on the set, next. ♪ >> tech: at safelite autoglass, we really pride ourselves on making it easy for you

9:58 pm
north korea. they are called secondary sanctions. w they -- when somebody does business with north korea, they transact into u.s. dollars. this will target those. this is a good tool for our government to have to a affect change with north korea. i think what was important for cindy and i -- we were walking the other night. we went past a tree that was planted in otto's memory. there was a small plaque there. we said:d: do we think we could have done more for otto when he was first taken? we let north korea completely control the dialogue. we were silenced with fear. we were not proactive. they controlled everything. they forced him to confess to things that were completely false.
9:59 pm
they used him as a political pawn and a political prisoner. we made a decision we want to do something positive for otto. we don't want this to happen to any other family or anyone else. that's what motivates me to be here tonight. >> tucker: you said something to me in the break that resonated. you said, if this becomes law, every time north korea violate it, they will have to say his name. >> that's the important reason to me. the first one, our government needs tools to pressure north korea. pressure is what brought north korea to the negotiating table. this is an additional tool that can pressure them to affect change. >> tucker: the story of your son got a bigger response from our viewers than anything i have seen or done at 10 years in fox.
