president on capitol hill throughout the night. >> at the national security council and state department protested. omb lawyers said it was legal to withhold the aid as long as they deemed it a temporary hold >> sean: welcome to hannity. we start tonight a fox news alert. you are not dreaming. this is not some horrific nightmare. at this hour the schumer schiff sham show by the way try saying that three times fast not on a delay national tv. going up to bat. no net and i'm on the high wire. anyway, it's still going on. i have a lot of good news we start with tonight. none of this will matter because in 286 days, you, we, the american people you, i can report tonight, will be the ultimate jury in all of this. i don't have a crystal ball. i can't predict the future. i'm irish, always worry the next bomb is coming. the election is never easy
for a republican. you have to thread the needle. i'm going to go through why i think the president is in a very good position. but you have the power in 286 days to shock the world again. you are the american people. i can report tonight the ultimate jury. and coming up tonight we are going to show you a major new poll puts the president way ahead of every opponent in one very key important state. first, in case you were hard at work like most americans today and taking care of your families and paying your talks and obeying the laws. well, here is what you missed from today's schumer-schiff sham show charade. made it again. we learned absolutely nothing new today not one new piece of information. instead, we got hours and hours and hours, literally of the compromised corrupt, congenital liar adam schiff. wow, never ending, nonstop, same moral outrage from frankly watching him today, he is a lunatic.
if you watched him today, well, he was totally unhinged. he looked like a lunatic who has lost his mind babbling, repeating over and over and over again incoherently. i suspect this guy must talk in his sleep russia, trump, trump, russia, quid pro quo, impeach, impeach, impeach. he is like having a psychotic meltdown for the entire world to see and champions in the media so good. i'm like, okay, that's why nobody watches your shows. and worst of all, he is monotonous, repetitive, boring for three long horrific hours. he waged the single most crooked, lying dishonest smear campaign the likes of which even for washington took my breath away. he is a national disgrace, stain on the democratic party, a walking, talking, lying con man, a perfect
representation of everything that is wrong in the d.c. swamp. here is just a small sample of his neurosis, psychosis, mental breakdown today. >> that is an attempt to use the powers of the presidency to cheat an election for precise there reason. >> the president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box. in other words, cheat. >> cheating an election. they knew what it was like to live under a despot in 2016 then candidate trump implord russia to hillary clinton opponent's email accounts. russia if you are listening, they were listening. >> russia. >> russia. >> russia. >> russia. >> it's crazy. >> crazy. >> crazy. >> sean: crazy, that's the word thaman the democrats want u to trust. every time he has opened his mouth he has lied. not just last night not just today. schiff got caught in another
major lie. another one. as it turns out politico reporting he completely mischaracterized the sketchy new evidence that democrats tacked on after on the articles of impeachment in the 29th hour. add to that all the major lies. we have been telling you about them all. we have shown you again and again. and tough ask why on earth, i don't think anybody does trust this, well, psychotic hack. now, we all know about his russia collusion fixation, hoax, lies. he wrote a whole report. devin nunes told you the truth. completely. we know about his fisa abuse lie. we know about him lying about the president's phone call with zelensky. we know he lied about the fake so-called hearsay whistleblower. we would love to hear from him. well, his whole team was communicating with the hearsay whistleblower from the get-go. and speaking of which, breaking tonight, paul officery, wow, big block burster breaking news real
clear investigations. he has dropped a major bombshell on the psychotic and lying congenital liar. according to his damning new report, the deep state whistleblower was working closely with schiff's office, that's why he is compromised in this case was overheard only two weeks after donald trump was inaugurated scheming scimming with another fellow hold overthousand hold the duly elected president from office. time for another investigation. now, that was klee years ago in 2017. days after president trump was just sworn into office. your president. you elected him, we elected him. we, the people. you see what's happening here? all of this charade is now playing out in the swamp and the sewer on capitol hill and has nothing to do with the president's phone call with ukraine. they never mentioned aid. aid was never withheld or any foreign election interference. the only real interference was hillary clinton's bought and paid for debunked
russian dirty dossier. "new york times" even said oh, yeah that was likely russian disinformation from the get-go. media got it all wrong. we got it right thankfully on this show with a great team behind the scenes and our ensemble cast. talk about abuse of power, obstruction of congress. no, this is now a cull anyone nation. this is where it's seriou serious -- revenge to prevent the president's re-election in 286 days. tonight if democrats, if they're really concerned with election interference, you need to look no further than in a mirror because the schumer schiff sham show is just their latest attempt to reclaim power at any cost. they haven't done anything for you, we the people. what have they done? they even complain when we take out the number one state sponsor of terror who has killed hundreds of americans. other than that donald trump cured cancer they would impeach him for that the
stream of never ending monotonous dull, boring, redundant talking points. can you imagine 24 hours of this schiff. coming up, you know, they had these procedural votes. we covered it last night. what was -- what were these votes about? we knew each side would have 24 hours just like in the clinton case. we knew there would be 16 hours of questions just like in the clinton cases. we knew after that was all done we would have a vote on witnesses. they went vote after vote we need witnesses that we never subpoenaed in the house who has the soul power to impeach. do you know what that was? that was a political play as well. this is all an act, a show they are putting on for the american people in prime time and there was schumer trying to get swing state senators oh, joni ernst, cory gardner, susan collins, they want to tie them into vote so they can try to run negative ads and get power back so they can give us a
trillion-dollar green new deal. 52 trillion-dollar medicare for all. only taking in 4 trillion a year. someone give theme calculator so they can do the math. never fulfill those promise. obamacare save 2500 per year family work snout these are promises unsustainable. never be fulfilled. this is about their power. they want power back. they don't like it. trump, this is what draining the swamp looks like. they want now the desperate. they want all three branches of government so they can finally pass, yeah, medicare for all. the 94 trillion-dollar green new deal. no oil and gas, no combustion engine, no cows or planes, everything is free that will bankrupt our great country and turn our country into a socialist hell hole. remember, when we had biden, obama for 8 years, 13 million more americans on food stamps, 8 million more on poverty. lowest labor participation rate since the 1970s and
worst recovery since the 1940s, look at every record this president has made fourth year in office. ideas are failures, guaranteed mathematically impossible to fulfill. democrats following the al green playbook. they are weaponizing the political system with dirt political tricks, lies, propaganda, misinformation. they have done nothing in three long years except hate the president. now we have had to endure and suffer and witness over the past 48 hours house managers and their democratic allies in the senate. it's repulsive. it's sickening. it's hurting the country. just after midnight. well, president trump's white house counsel pat cipollone they deserved. i would never be allowed in that room. take a look. >> mr. nadler came up here and made false allegations against our team.
he made false allegations against all of you. he accused you of a cover-up. the only one who should be embarrassed, mr. nadler is you. for the way you have addressed this body. this is the united states senate. you are not in charge here. it's about time we bring this power trip in for a landing. mr. nadler, you owe an apology to the president of the united states and his family. you owe an apology to the senate. but most of all, you owe an apology to the american people. >> sean: mr. cipollone i have known you a long time you are a brilliant lawyer. you jay sekulow. don't hold your breath. earlier today the president had this to say about his attorney's powerful moment. also had a few choice words for the democratic impeachment managers.
the president was in davos where all the world leaders were sucking up to him, the envy of the free world because we have the defining growing economy. and they don't want this president going after better trade deals. trying to play nice in the sandbox with your president. deep respect and belief that what he says he means that he will do. take a look. jerrold nadler, i have known him a long time. he is a sleaze bag, everybody knows that pat cipollone is a high quality human being. i was very impressed with pat. he had great emotion yesterday. pat is a brilliant guy. but i have never seen that emotion. and that's real emotion. that's because he knows this is a hoax. and i was very proud of the job he did. >> sean: i'm assuming the president like had an hour and a half sleep and he gave a great press conference. i watched the whole thing this morning.
i'm told adam schiff is again back doing it more. now, if i was a terrible host, i would force you to endure watching the regurgitation, the repetition. put it up for a second. the insanity that has gone on all day, america, 24 hours of never ending babbling, repetitive talking points over what was nothing and, by the way, remember he sent the new evidence about lev parnas over to the senate in the 29th hour? in that letter he said quid pro quo and hunter zero experience got the prosecutor fired they did nothing wrong. really? okay. keep talking to yourself. no matter what happens in the coming days, always remember congressman jim jordan's four irrefutable facts that will never change. he will join us. one we have a transcript of
phone conversation the president released. actually, two phone conversations, with him amend president zelensky. aid was never mentioned. it was never any linkage between biden, u.s. aid and the call. number two, jim jordan, both trump and president zelensky said there was no pressure, zero pressure, linkage whatsoever. they said it numerous times including the foreign minister of ukraine. three, this is an important one, the time call, ukraine didn't know the aid was even paused. now, while the president didn't talk about aid, he did say now i'm surrounding yourself with a bunch of bad people like your predecessor, that's not good. looking out four your tax dollars. do us a favor. americans, ukraine, okay? you interfered. we know russia interfered. devin nunes they should have listened to him in 2014. if your ukrainian court in politico january 11th, 2017 is correct. they have a chronology of election interference ukraine was involved you need to get to the bottom of that for three years democrats said foreign
election interference is bad. by the way, number four, jim jordan's hits, the ukrainians took no action. nothing to getted aid released. we have the letters the invitation of slesk to come to the white house. the aid was released on time. actually early for some of it. one other point. there were five high level meetings after that call. including vice president at not one of those meetings, did anyone ever talk about aid. the only one fact witness that would be ambassador sondland. he said yeah, the president said i don't want anything, no quid pro quo. just, you know, don't be corrupt. democrats claim their case is overwhelming for impeachment. now, if that were true, they wouldn't need the senate now to do what is constitutionally their job we need new evidence we need to subpoena witnesses we didn't subpoena witnesses
because we were on a rush to go on christmas vacation and thid a couple weeks such a danger to the democratic republic. democrats have nothing, had nothing, they are at the end ever the road. as i said at the top of the the show, thank god i am happy about one thing. american people, you will render the ultimate verdict. now, you have people like liberal joe over there at the conspiracy channel saying that, well, maybe hannity lives in a bubble there is no chance donald trump can win. if that's the case, i live with obama for eight years. but i would like to see america at every record continue i would like to see guys like soleimani, baghdadi and the isis caliphate wiped out. i would like to see the continuation of record numbers, low unemployment numbers. the best since 196 continue for our fellow americans. every demographic, african-americans, asian americans, hispanic americans, women i in the workplace, youth
unemployment. i would like that to continue. i don't want to go back to the horrific obama biden years. i don't want to be bribing mullahs with 150 billion in cash and other currency. all of this is politics. they want power back for, what? to destroy the economy again? and bribe dictators again and mullahs again? now, there is one barometer that we pay attention to in this business and i thankfully you give me this camera every night that's right in front of me. you give me a fike phone for three hours a day. the only way i continue to work is if you watch and listen. there were tv ratings from last night's coverage. called trial of the century. day one minor increases across the board. minor. wasn't a lot of interest like they thought as a matter of fact, cbs actually ended their impeachment coverage early today. thank you for making us number one last night and the last number of years. thank you. i can't do it without you. but, cbs did it because they wanted their regularly
scheduled daytime soap operas back. they make money on those. and meanwhile the president was doing what he always does. he was in europe conducting important business over the last three years, democrats in the media and the mob, they are state-run tv propagandists. well, they raged. he is a busy man. what he has accomplished in less than one term. >> the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. the time for empty talk is over. now arrives the hour of action. from this day forward, a new vision will govern our land from this day forward, it's going to be only america first. every decision will be made to benefit american workers, and american families. america will start winning
again, winning like never before. i will fight for you with every breath in my body and i will never ever let you down. do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. no challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of america. we will not fail. our country will thrive and prosper again. your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our american destiny. when america is united, america is totally unstoppable. [applause] >> sean: i saw dan who tweeted that out everything in there is true. the do nothing democrats have done nothing. in the president's case promises made, promises kept. all americans are winning. i'm not sick of winning.
house minority leader kevin mccarthy. you know, i have given you a lot of credit. i want to echo these comments tonight. you have been a force of nature. have you brought your caucus together. singularly focused them on an agenda that is good for the american people. you work with these democrats. the ba ba ba ba, the nancy pelosis and congenital liar. can you name any one thing they have done to help the american people more safe, secure, prosperous to create more jobs? >> no. they are going to have to go back to the american people and ask to be reelected on they have issued more subpoenas than they created any laws. you just sit and watch this and you are 100 percent correct. that ad was fantastic it. lays out all that this president has achieved. but he cheef ak450e6d this durie time the democrats want to investigate and impeach him. watching in the senate there is no right for it. adam schiff continues to get
fixated on the word cover-up. he is the one covering up. covered up no evidence of russian collusion. covered up contact with the whistleblower. he covered up truth from coming out when he stopped the witnesses from answering the republicans' questions. then he covered up, this is really interesting. the only testimony that has not come out from the basement is the inspector general. why? because it probably proves he is a fact witness. now is he covering up texts with more lies. this is all that adam schiff has ever done and the american people are continuing to see it. >> sean: okay. so, now, i read the constitution, congressman, very clearly, the sole power to impeach rests with your body. maybe you will be the speaker next time. maybe we will find out in 286 days that you win the majority. that would be good for the american people, in my opinion. but, here's the thing. they have the power. impeach the president. everybody got sworn. in they got dressed up. they look real nice. you hear the babbling, repetition and the talking
points. i can't believe this is going to go on for 24 hours. it's like okay, i would rather watch paint dry. but, here's my question. as all the republicans are united. they now present their case. why, after they present their case, would the senate then take on the constitutional role of the house and try and bolster the horrific case that the house made? that makes no sense to me. >> that's not the role of the senate. the senate should not do that one of those attorneys to stand up and read what nadler said to us in the house. that they have proven beyond a shadow of doubt that they have proven this case inside the house. so, if they have proven it, they need no other witness inside the senate. it's not the senate's role to call witnesses. remember, the house had to move so quickly and then they hold it. they said they had a wonderful case and they proved it beyond any chance of anybody wondering.
now they say their case is no good. they have moved this forward simply for one purpose and one purpose only politics. they do not like this president. do you know what else they don't like? they don't like their own candidate. that's what they are trying to cover up. their candidates are so poor they know they can't beat this president so they're trying to use impeachment to do just that. >> sean: congressman, thank you for the work you are doing. imagine if you had the house, the senate and the white house, wow, we would get more accomplished for the benefit of the american people. they are supposed to be public servants. they have become psychotic rambling -- okay, i'm going to behave. anyway, thank you for being with us. tonight, let's not forget the real ukraine scandal. the very center of this charade surrounding, yep, quid pro quo joe and zero experience on hunter, paid millions for knowing nothing. and while democrats try, really really hard to sweep the corruption under the rug, i got to give credit tonight and props to senator ted cruz the great state of texas holding their feet to the fire. good for him. take a look.
>> if the house managers' case is based on the allegations of corruption concerning hunter biden and joe biden being a sham then it is directly relevant the need for the senate to hear the testimony of hunter biden and the need for the senate to grant the white house lawyers the ability to take that testimony has become all the more relevant. >> sean: okay. how do you possibly say the president did something and ignore quid and pro and joe and zero experience hunter and he should be forced to testify. here with reaction the author of the booker, best seller, "guilt by accusation" harvard law professor alan dershowitz hart of the president's defense team on the constitution. all right. maybe you agree or disagree with my analysis tonight. my monologue. i hope you found it entertaining because there was nothing gaining or good for the country of what was unfolding today, professor. and i mean that and i love this country and this is repulsive to me. but my next question is,
after they are done with their 24 hours. after they are done with the other 24 hours. after they are done with the 16 hours of questions, and the issue of bringing in witnesses comes up. why would the senate bring in any witness that wasn't called in the house? they didn't even subpoena these witnesses and they are demanding that senate republicans take on the constitutional role of the house. i don't get that part. the constitution. fidelity to that great document. >> i agree. and i have to tell you i think my former student ted cruz is absolutely right. how can you say that the testimony of hunter biden isn't relevant if the accusation is that the president raised issues of corruption when there were no issues of corruption regarding hunter biden. look, i like joe biden. i have known him for many, many years. he is a really nice man and
i have nothing against his son. in terms of legal relevance, if i were a defense lawyer in a case and trying to prosecute my client for making statements about corruption, the first witness i would call is the witness about whom the conversation took place. so, of course you could never have witnesses here without hunter biden being a central witness. but you are right. if my argument prevails, my argument is that the two articles of impeachment don't satisfy the constitution. then there is no need for witnesses at all. you simply dismiss the allegations as unconstitutional. but if there are going to be witnesses, there have to be witnesses on all side. the democrats will roux the day. their witness also probably be blocked by executive privilege or at least court proceedings involving executive privilege but the production' witnesses like hunter biden there would be no basis for blocking their testimony and i can't imagine the chief justice ruling that the testimony of hunter biden would be irrelevant. >> sean: you know, i have got to imagine if it does
make it through the court system, if they would expedite the process that there wouldn't be even some more liberal justices that don't understand the history. and can i quote hamilton and jefferson but i won't show off. the point of the matter is, you are correct now the question is what does the senate do? do they want to call the one fact witness, ambassador sondland? there is another fact witness and that would be adam schiff. i would like to hear from him. i would argue he is a fact witness. >> you know, it's so interesting. you know the first president was who claimed executive privilege, didn't use the words but it was executive privilege was george washington. guess what the opposing people called george washington. they said he abused his power by refusing to turn over documents ther about the sanjay treaty which was very controversial.
this has happened from the beginning of our history. and the idea that anybody could be impeached for abuse of power, something that almost every president has been accused of, during the obama administration there was a whole congressional hearing on obama administration abusing its power. it's a cliche abuse of power. it's something that is tossed out about every president by political opponents. >> sean: no crime. >> it's not an impeachable offense. it's not even close. even if you don't need a crime and there is a dispute about that. you can't raise that issue abuse of power to the level of impeachable offense. and framers would have rejected that. >> sean: seeking remedy when there is a conflict between the executive and ledges laslegislative branch i didn't go to harvard like you and ted cruz. i ran out of money to go to college. you would have liked me as a student i had good grades. >> i would have.
>> sean: the point is that is an appropriate thing. that's not obstruction. >> it's not only not obstruction. it's constitutionally required that the president invoke privilege when it's essential to protect conversations about national security. the president did the right thing. and for him to be accused of obstructing congress with the deter future presidents from exercising constitutional power. >> sean: i have a funny feeling, professor, your party -- i have no idea why you are a part of this party anymore. i think they will come to regret and my mother always used to say, she was a prison guard, you will roux the day. and i did roux the day her admonition. i have got to run. >> my party turned against me. congressman nadler said he used to think i'm ignore egg ige ray must and now he thinks i'm a lawyer. obstruction of congress and abuse of power are not impeachable offenses. he forgets that he changed
his mind about what's impeachable based purely on partisan issues. and. >> sean: i have got to run. >> go ahead. you have been amazing. it is important for the american people to hear. live from capitol hill the very latest on the schumer schiff sham show, i don't think he would exactly say it that way. he is a news man. chad pergram is there. we will say the hitchhiker guide's to all things washington he is your man. chad, how are you? >> good evening, sean. thanks for having me. well, the impeachment trial goes on. we expect it to wrap up here probably for the evening session in the next 10 or 15 minutes. adam schiff, the chair of the intelligence committee, the lead impeachment manager is making his closing remarks here. then they will go back at it the next couple of days as the prosecution continues. is this making an impact? mark meadows republican congressman from north carolina, he has indicated that he has heard the same points over and over again. you talk to chuck schumer, the democratic leader in the senate, here's what he said
earlier, quote: the fact that you have to sit in those chairs, no iphones, no cell phones, no yacking, and pay attention, i think it's going to make a difference. and you talk to republican senator john kennedy of louisiana, he says that a lot of republican and democratic senators, you know, they are senators, they have busy lives, they have rules in the senate. they haven't had a chance to tune in to the began you later of the house case. he said he is learning something by listening to all of, this we had a dramatic moment in the senate chamber earlier this evening. we had the first demonstrator who barged through the door despite all the security here and ushered out by the u.s. capitol police. they have been charged and there is other charges pending. in fact, john kennedy said, quote, it scared the bejesus out of him. a lot of people were shocked, including kennedy, that they have not had more protests with the senate trial. again, to re-set, they should be wrapping up tonight in just the next couple of minutes. then two more days, 8-hour batches for the prosecution and then maybe the defense on saturday, sean.
>> sean: i don't know what you are getting paid from fox, chad, whatever it is, it's not enough. to have to sit through that monotonous redundant insanity for 24 hours and 24 more and 16 after that. >> 2:25 last night or this morning i should say. >> sean: i know. i didn't go to sleep so don't worry. joining us now two congressional members of the president's impeachment team. i got to give a special shoutout because everything we learned about fisa abuse, premeditated fraud on the fisa court. the russian dirty dossier, spying on a presidential candidate, transition team. president. and also probably outsourcing spying to allied nations for the purpose of circumventing american law, these two guys were right and the congenital liar who is still talking and babbling to himself as we speak, that guy, you know, lied to the american people in a spectacular fashion. jim jordan, ohio.
mark meadows, the great state of north carolina. all right. i didn't do you justice, jim jordan. four things that never change. >> yeah. >> sean: can i add a fifth? there were five follow up meeting. >> key meetings in that 55 days that the aid was paused. key meetings never once linking aid to an investigation never come up. the facts are all on the president's side. no matter what the democrats do with this the spin, they are on the president's side. today as you pointed out, sean, we had to listen to adam schiff i think for over four hours. the same adam schiff who told us there is more than circumstantial evidence there was collusion. the same adam schiff the fisa process was just fine. the same adam schiff who said the nunes memo was adequate. the same adam schiff who did his false story the parody at the hearing right after this came out. and then the same adam schiff who mislead the american people yesterday, the politico story about the
text message that mr. parnas had. this guy, we are now supposed to believe when he talks for four hours that he is telling us the truth? come on, the american people see right through. this. >> sean: congressman meadows, i have watched, listened, i have heard, there is nothing new. and the sad part for me is the constitutional issues that professor dershowitz is bringing up but more, importantly, they haven't done a thing for the american people. i love the ultimate jury deciding in 286 days. i don't have a crystal ball but i have an idea why i think trump will win which i run by new a second. get your thoughts on the day. where this is progressing. executive privilege, witnesses. where do you see going? >> you are right. we didn't hear anything new. i can tell you that adam schiff repeated himself more times than a geico commercial. the only problem is he can't save you 15% or more on your car insurance. all he can do is give you a headache. come on. >> sean: you can now host this show. you are qualified. >> well, i mean, listen, we were giving out aspirin in
giant bottles today because, you know, he just kept going on and on and on. and jim jordan said it was about lie after lie. listen, we quit counting after we had 12 different false statements made by adam schiff and the fact is, he knows better. and he continues to try to sell this to the american people. i can tell you, they are not buying it. we're not buying it. but, more importantly, the senators are not buying it. they are unified, you know, 12 votes last night. not a single one of them that went in the democrat's favor, so, it's all about making sure that we call adam schiff out for what he would know he is. and that is someone who is not willing to give the american people the truth. >> sean: like a train wreck. that might be the only reach people would watch. i want to go broader here because we have to look at everything happening through
the prism of what is happening in 286 days. and that's the ultimate jury as i call it and the american people could shock the world again. i want to lay out my case where i think the president is in a good position. but, with this caveat. the republican to win the presidency, they have got to thread the needle and they have got to run the table. north carolina, they got to get florida. they got to get ohio. they have to pick off pennsylvania, they have got to get wisconsin, michigan, maybe minnesota. i would like to see states like new hampshire in play. i mention minnesota in play. i would like to see nevada in play, new mexico in play. arizona. got to run the table. much harder. here's why and i want to run it by you both. why i think the president is in a very good position. number one, foreign policy. i mentioned baghdadi. his associates. the caliphate, soleimani. no bribing of mullahs and dictators. number two, promises made, kept. biggest tax cut, original list justices ending
burdensome regulation. getting money for the wall, building the wall. trade deals, china, 220 billion in two years for farmers and every manufacturer in our energy sector add to that japan and canada and add to that what is happening down in mexico. they are actually probably paying for the wall with the new deal. then you have western european allies and energy independent for the first time in 75 years. i'm going to add one other thing. the president is a fighter. he is not -- american people have gotten used to his style. they feign outrage in the media in the media and democrats. this is not only the greatest show on earth watching him pound these people and pummel them into the ground. the more important part and jim, we will let you go. is that the american people are winning. the records that he is setting are great for our country. >> yeah. >> sean: your turn. >> you are exactly right, schwabb. sean. can't say it better.
reagan said it's not the reviews that count. it's what happens at the box office. people in the mainstream press can say all the negative things they want about the president. but the people know. they know taxes cut, regulations reduce you had. economy grow requesting at unbelievable rate as you talk about. the trade agreement. the fact we had the lowest unemployment in 50 years. al baggedy and soleimani. hostages home from north north korea. they feel it. more than all the stats, they see their wages going up. they know what's happening in their community. they sue how the economy is going. and see this guy fighting the swamp. they also know this. when you fight the swamp, the swamp fights back. when you draining the swamp, they fight back. that's what this is all about. the american people understand it. when the reviews happen. when the box office -- when the people go to the box office, they are going to vote big time for donald trump. >> sean: mark meadows, let's look at your perspective. 286 days. big election. i would like this progress to continue. >> well, i would like it to
continue. it will continue. there are two key things and reasons why that will happen. one is this president has delivered on more than 30 significant campaign promises and we are used to politicians who campaign on one thing and deliver another. not this president. he i has not only performed in the first three years. can you imagine what he can do over the next five? i can tell you jim is exactly right. when they go to the box office, they are going to be purchasing a ticket for four more years of donald trump. why? because it's affecting them personally. he is a fighter. but he is not fighting for everybody else. he is fighting for us. he is fighting for your viewers, the people that are tuned in right now. and they know it. and he is doing it great personal cost. i get concerned for him and his family, what they're having to go through. >> sean: that's terrible. >> he is willing to stay in the fight for them. >> sean: he can handle it. i feel sorry for his family have to put up with this crap for three years. this is what we get. you guys have been amazing.
not a lot of really strong fighters. you two lead the way. thanks for what you do every day. mark meadows and jim jordan. >> thank you, sean. >> sean: here with reaction author of the "new york times" best seller, radicals, resistance, revenge, the host of the incredibly successful highest rated saturday show judge jeanine pirro. you know, i kind of kid you every once in a while. we have been friends a long, long time. you should be very proud of the success of your show. and it is number one. >> and sunday too. [laughter] >> sean: tell that to lavigne. >> i'm good. i got sunday. >> sean: you know, i kid you your monologues scare me sometimes. i'm teasing you. but your passion and your knowledge of the law and your background prosecuting, you know the law, you know the truth, you know when
people lie, and all of this is unfolding. i like your thoughts what you think is happening. will happen, and how this ends and when. >> you know, it's interesting, sean. i don't look at this case as a prosecutor. i look at it as a judge. every time adam schiff opens his mouth, i have a reaction. i want to sustain an objection. but there is no objection. virtually everything that comes out of his mouth is irrelevant, immaterial, or something that is admissible. he is talking about russia and mueller. that has nothing to do with this. he quotes hamilton. when essentially hamilton was the guy who said watch for the majority trying to take out a president. he says hamilton says we shouldn't impeach over policy differences. and that's essentially what this is. more important than that, i don't know why adam schiff is even in a courtroom practicing in front of the chief justice of the supreme court. i will tell you why. every time he is in congress
talking about donald trump or an opponent a lie comes out of his mouth whether it's fisa warrant or russian collusion with donald trump. dossier or parnas document or whether it's the whistleblower or whether it's its interpretation of the transcript and this president's so-called cover-up. cover-up? are you stupid? there is no cover-up here. this president declassified and allowed for that transcript to be publicized so everyone would know firsthand what the evidence is in the case. and for this guy schiff and he is not too smart because he is telling the senate if you don't go along with calling witnesses. and doing the job that the house should have done, then you are involved in the cover-up, too. i mean, you really want to convince a jury by saying they are covering up. >> sean: there is a little clapping going on. wow a moment of levity. let's tune in and see what's happening there? >> okay. >> mr. leader, let me just
add my thanks and gratitude for all of us. it is rare, particularly these days, when 100 senators from both sides of the aisle of every political persuasion get up and give someone a standing ovation. [laughter] but you deserve it. thank you for your good work. >> sean: judge, last question. do you see any circumstances under which the supreme court of the united states, even the liberal justices on the court, left leaning justices would ever deny the president, executive privilege? that would hurt for in purr inpr at the throughout. when adam schiff talks about the congress being with the executive branch he is wrong when it comes to executive privilege. the executive privilege is divided by the courts. and the courts understand the precedent and the importance of executive privilege. i can't imagine, even though they are liberal and you are
right, sean, i can't imagine them not protecting that, especially in the case that involves foreign relations and the foreign diplomacy and the president with his closest circle of his men. >> sean: all right, judge, don't scare me with your monologue this weekend, please? only so much i can take. all right. thank you. when we come back, continue to monitor the schumer schiff sham show and we will tell you about that moment of levity straight ahead. ♪ ♪

larry elder and former clinton polster mark penn. mark wrote an incredible piece today that was on the hill and impeachment government shutdown. you have been warning your party about all of this. i don't think they're listening to you. and i don't think it's going to work out well in the end for them, mark, but i want you to explain in your own words. >> well, look, i call it an impeachment shutdown. i say, look, even adam schiff says he knows how this is coming out. so now we have paralyzed all three branches of the government for something that should have been a congressional report. look, i don't let anybody off the hook. >> sean: the president did a china deal last week. is he in davos this week. i don't see that he is shut down. >> he is a 20 person legal team that has to argue his case. we have all the tv networks. we have got the congress and the senate tied up. look. this is a shutdown of the government for political advertising that we know is not going anywhere. we know these offenses while
i think they raise some serious questions or eyebrows are not impeachable. particularly article 2. it's a waste of time. i defended clinton. i have been consistent on this. have elections, not impeachments unless hav have you got something really serious that is going to get the other party and this is not going to get the republicans to join them. >> sean: what's your take, larry elder? >> i feel the same way. look, i was around during the clinton impeachment. and i saw a poll that said 65% of republicans felt that bill clinton should be kicked out of office. 85% of democrats feel that way about trump. and in the case of clinton. you had about 30 democrats that voted with republicans to open up the inquiry and over here have you zero republicans voting with the democrats to open up the inquiry. so in this is the most one-sided impeachment i have ever seen. american people can see through. this i have a friend sean named kelly. kelly is a democrat. have you lost kelly, have you lost the case. she has been watching and i don't understand what he did that was wrong. >> sean: do you think when
these -- there is eight polls now, 16.34% support with the african-american community. all the records that he has broken, low unemployment, african-americans, youth unemployment, african-american youth unemployment a record. does that impact the president because i think he is going to hang on to his base. i don't see any attrition. i think this is just angering and motivating his base even more. his economy, his foreign policy successes. do you see that translating into a shift? demographically? hang one second. jay sekulow. >> the articles of impeachment. they are putting on their case. we will put on our case. i'm not going to give you time frames on the case on how long it will take to do ours. i will tell you this. we will be putting on both affirmative case in defense of the president but also pointing out some of the errors in the case that they have presented.
>> are you prepared for a moderate to come out and say they want to see the memo, pompeo and situations like that? >> look, these are questions, first of all, that the senate has to address. they will determine what will go in the record and what will not. under the rules that a documented. so our position, right now, is the senate, we are governed by a senate resolution and that's exactly what we're going to do. >> what really stands out in your mind today, the first thing you want to refute when you get to saturday. >> i thought it was interesting they are making references to the career people that were in the various agencies. but when you read the transcripts, they also said things that were very positive about the president. and the president's policies. so we may be talking about some of that we probably won't get to talk about that for a couple of days, i suspect. >> the manager talks about -- repeatedly told the senators you can see this document. can you subpoena this document. why shouldn't the senators -- why duo pose that? >> i said in this morning. i said it yesterday.
i'm going to say it again. the constitution protects executive privilege. there's a reason for that despite what manager nadler said, you cannot call the executive privilege and other nonsense. there is constitutional privileges at stake that don't just affect this presidency by the i think that affect the office of the presidency for other presidents that come. >> have you been speaking to the president throughout -- >> -- i would never discuss with you if i had a conversation with the president or why i stepped out of the chamber. >> what about the president tweeting during this responding in realtime? he tweeted no pressure, for example? >> okay. >> what if you lose though? >> i have been -- i'm sure, fine, i have been in a hearing all day as you all have been. look, i'm not going to have conversations about the president's mood. i think this whole fact that we are here is ridiculous. i mean, think about why we are here. i said that at the beginning when we spoke yesterday, which seems like about two weeks ago.
but the truth of the matter is why are we here? are we having an impeachment over a phone call? or has this been a three-year attempt to take down a president that was duly elected by the american people? we are doing this 10 months to go to a general election. pretty dangerous for our republic in our view. >> why not make a motion to dismiss [inaudible] >> because i want to let them try their case and we want to try our case. because we believe without a question the president will be acquitted. there is not a doubt. all right. one more. >> are you ruling out a motion to dismiss at any point in the trial? >> those of you that know me know i don't rule out anything. nothing is ruled out but at this point, the way the procedures are set up, at this point here's what i believe is going to happen. they are going -- it looks like they are going to spend tomorrow and friday and then i suspect we will start on saturday. and then we will go probably another day or two, but no knows? we have got to make that determination with our team. >> and then what do you think happens after that. >> then there is questions. two days of that. then there is a probably half day argument on -- will
there be witnesses or not. so that's probably a day. >> what's your prediction? >> look, my prediction is the president of the united states will be acquitted -- >> -- on the witnesses? >> you know what? i don't predict on witnesses. i'm prepared. all right. >> do you think the president tweeting during any of this is affecting the senators when they read the tweets? >> i'm not concerned about that. >> some republicans have said, last question. >> illuminating, enlightening, they are not saying they automatically buy the democrats' case. >> illuminating, enlightening and i'm not questioning what you say they are saying. obviously i have been in the proceedings. is there anything we have learned today that we have not heard for the last three months? >> senator kennedy 9 out of 10 senators [inaudible] >> what did he say? >> he said 9 out of 10 senators have no idea what really went on in the hearings and the 10th one would be lying. >> because the hearings don't make sense to people is that what they're saying. >> they didn't pay attention. [multiple people talking at the same time] >> learned a lot. >> okay.
at the end of the day, i believe without question the president united states will be acquitted. thank you, everybody. >> sean: the president's personal attorney, he and pat cipollone, great coverage so far. amazing moments from them. and did we lose larry and mark? we have got to bring them back tomorrow. i think we lost them. joining us now two members of president's legal team new york congressman lee zeldin arizona congresswoman debbie lesko. okay. you guys deserve more pay to sit through the schumer schiff sham show. every time i say that successfully it's a miracle. congresswoman we will begin with you. >> watching this today is like reliving the nightmare in the house. i just can't believe the audacity of these democrats the way they lie and carry on, the hypocrisy is beyond belief. and so, you know, the president is doing a great job. and these democrats are going to lose the house. i mean, the american people
have to see this for what it is. it's totally political hit job. that's all it is. it's disgusting, quite frankly. sickening. >> sean: let me go to congressman zeldin who by the way will you please talk congressman pete king into staying? what is he doing? but, you have been in the forefront of battling this -- what is the fallout both legally and the fallout for the country? >> the fallout for the country is a missed opportunity. they should be working with the president on lowering the cost of prescription drug prices. instead of doing that we see the senate hijack this schumer schiff sham show made a field trip from the house chamber to the senate chamber. they didn't bring the articles of impeachment alleging a crime. they didn't bring it arguing an impeachable offense. so, and they are saying that the burden is on the president to prove his innocence. so, on top of that the president was just doing his job. the law requires him with tax dollars to give to
ukraine to ensure that ukraine is fighting corruption and it was a legitimate concern that ukrainians interfered in the 2016 election and legitimate concern that burst marks krzyzewski and bidens were involved in clear as day corruption. the president was doing his job. the country hurts because we are not prioritizing important, substantive wins. >> sean: congressman zeldin, thank you. long island good for you. surprising, new york still has a couple of districts that are red. congresswoman, thank you. we go back to -- bring back mark penn and larry elder. larry, i will give you the question. these 8 polls, dramatic support in the african-american community from president who had 8%, lowest is 16%. 34.5, 34, 33, 28, 22s. as low as 16. does that translate into votes based on the economic record in the african-american community? >> i think so. there is clearly going to do much better than that 7% or so he got in 2016.
you are talking about historical low unemployment. the first step act that allowed a bunch of black men about 1,000 to have their sentences reduced an average of 70 months. you are talking about doing something about illegal immigration. and illegal immigrants, those who have little skills pose threats to jobs and puts pressure on wages of black and bron brown people living in the inner city. is he doing something to put more money in the historically black colleges. doing something about enterprise zones. you add all that up together, it seems to me that he is going to do far better than did he in 2016. the only question is how much better. >> sean: thanks to kanye, kim kardashian, alice maria johnson, prison reform, so many democrats promised, never delivered. mark penn, overall observations how this plays out. you got the final minute of hannity tonight. go, sir. >> first of all, the democrats have done an incredible job pushing this thing all the way to the senate and getting three full days to blast the message here.
i just don't think this goes anywhere. i think because it's not going to bring over republicans, it's a waste of time. and so the risk here is a serious boomerang for arresting the entire time of the country that everybody knows isn't going anywhere. >> sean: you know, it's amazing, there are few democrats that get it and then you become pariahs in your own party. and larry is a libertarian. i'm a registered conservative in the new york. and i have been very critical, as larry has been, of weak republicans. but i saw especially in the house strength that i have not seen in a number of years, maybe since 2010. and i'm just hoping the same happens in the senate antidotal evidence i'm learning from my sources saying it is happen. guys, thank you, mark, larry, thank you very much. all right. that ends the hour. we make a promise on this program. we were vindicated by the inspector general report. we are never going to be the psychotic, rage, hate trump media mob. we always pursue the truth. we have been right.
they have been wrong. and we will have the latest. 286 days to go until election day. we will count it down. we'll have the latest on that and the schumer schiff sham show. let not your heart be troubled. here's laura. ♪ >> laura: i'm laura ingraham, this is "the ingraham angle" from washington tonight. we have a big exclusive for you. email exchanges we got our hands on from state department officials that could alter the course of president trump's impeachment. we are going to expose what the obama administration knew about hunter biden and burisma and reveal how it all ties back to the person some have floated as the whistle-blower. our exclusive investigation comes later in the hour. but first the impeachment managers just wrapped their ca case, it was just a few moments earlier today that set the tone. the
