10:01 pm
exclusive interview with the wikileaks founder. all of that plus judge jeanine pirro and more. "hannity" starts right now. >> welcome to "hannity." tonight i have a message for cry baby sore loser left, and that is donald trump won. stop whining. accept it already. that's tonight's opening monologue. ♪ finally, enough is enough. it is time for the cod willed left to stop trying to undermine president-elect trump. admit the fact he won fair and square. since election night the left has been plotting to try to prevent him from actually occupying the oval office. remember the recount attempts? it was a complete disaster. donald trump ended up getting more votes in wisconsin. this russian hacking story democrats are pushing, that's a total failure because it is not based on concrete evidence or any new information or fact, but democrats can't let it go. here is what white house press secretary and propagandist josh earnest said today. mr. trump obviously knew
10:02 pm
that russia was engaged in malicious cyber activity that was helping him and hurting secretary clinton's campaign. and, again, these are all facts that are not in dispute. >> let's break it down. josh earnest, he would obviously not be making that claim without the approval of his boss, president obama. by the way, the democrats, well, they weren't caring about the constitution for the past eight years as obama was stomping on it, so you have the outgoing president of the united states now actively trying to delegitimize his successor. that's not the only tack tin democrats are employing. that he plotting basically what amounts to a political coupe. they're trying to underminor democracy and create a constitutional crisis because their corrupt candidate lost and you didn't vote for her. now, on monday, members of the electoral college will meet to officially cast their ballots for president and vice
10:03 pm
president, and the left are doing everything they can do to try to convince these electors not to do their job and not vote for donald trump. not surprisingly, hollywood liberals are tloi liberals are throwing their support behind the radical idea to create a constitutional crisis. watch this. >> republican members of the electoral college is for you. as you know, our founding fares built the electoral college to safeguard the american people from the dangers of a demagogue and ensure the presidency only goes to someone who is to an imminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications. >> an imminent degree, someone who is highly qualified for the job. >> the electoral college was created specifically to prevent an unfit candidate from becoming president. >> there are 538 members of the electoral college, you and just 36 other conscientious republican electors could make a difference. >> by voting your conscience on
10:04 pm
december 19th. >> it gets worse. we are learning also president obama and hillary clinton are directly tied to this plan. now, "the daily caller" is reporting a public relations firm that represents some of these, quote, faithless electors was cofounded by former white house adviser van jones who works now at the clinton news network, cnn. the company is reportedly filled with members who worked for president obama and clinton's campaign in the past. that's not all. the left is using extreme tactics to try to influence these electors including threats of violence. take a look at what has been happening to a michigan electoral college voter in that state. i have been inundated with hundreds and hundreds of letters to my house, facebook messages, and some of those messages were death threats. i have had people threatening to put a bullet in the back of my mouth. people saying to throw myself in front of a bus, sending me pictures of a noose saying if i don't do the right thing they'll get me.
10:05 pm
>> crazy leftists like the washed up keith observermerman coming out of the woodwork. >> he has been helped into the white house by an evil nation, and all they will do is reviews and committees whose words will be too measured and too late. the voters have guaranteed themselves slavery, defeat, economic disaster and the need to save this nation and restore freedom by extricating ourselves from a trump regime by whatever process provided itself. >> how far keith has fallen. imagine if i said the same thing back in 2008 after barack obama had won the election. now, democrats, they're being total hypocrites. ever since clinton lost, president obama has been floating the idea russia could have influenced the election. back in october he was actually mocking donald trump for raising concerns. take a look. a larger point that i want to emphasize here is that there is no serious person out there
10:06 pm
who would suggest somehow that you could even -- you could even rig america's elections. and so i would advise mr. trump to stop whining and try to make his case to get votes. >> president obama, maybe you and hillary, maybe it is time for you to stop whining. this hillary clinton, remember how she was relentlessly attacking donald trump after he said he would wait until after the election before accepting the results? let's take a look at this. that's horrifying. you know, every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. >> now, make no mistake, by doing that he is threatening our democracy. >> i got to tell you, as your secretary of state i went to 112 countries, and i went to countries where people were jailed for being political opponents, where they were
10:07 pm
exiled, where they were killed. i take this really seriously. and for me, the peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that makes our country great. >> i guess not. why won't the democrats listen to their own advice and criticism on this issue? here is the fact. it is because they don't care about you, the people they think are irredeemable, the basket of deploreables. the left only cares about people who live apparently in new york, los angeles, san francisco and of course where the sewer is so corrupt, in washington d.c. middle america might not even exist. the sore loser left, they need to take a long look at this electoral map from 2016. you see all of that red there? that means donald trump won. and he did it by listening to the american people. he actually went there to all of those states and campaigned on issues. now, if the left is so tolerant and accepting as they always claim to be, maybe it is time to
10:08 pm
act like it and once and for all recognize donald trump is going to be our next president. but let's be honest. president obama, he's not going to do that. he will be attacking donald trump at every turn, which is the exact opposite of what president george w. bush did to him. here with reaction, syndicated columnist, host of the series michelle malkin investigates on michelle, good to see you. >> good. i'm very good, sean. apparently our friends on the left are still suffering from post election trauma. >> or trump de rangement syndrome. is there a new word for this? >> yeah, that's right. i mean we really need to call 911 and call the wamblance. they need to all be hauled into the wamblance and taken to recover in private instead of public. you know, i was mad about it at first, but now i really pity these people. you know i'm in colorado, back
10:09 pm
home after being on tour for the crtv series, and this is the state, of course, that gave us the safeless electors who fashioned themselves some sort of kujs constitutional heroes, naming themselves also after hamilton. these are not heroes but zeros. these are fekless electors, traitors, saboteurs. they're trying to hype drama before monday, but it is the same kind of hype we saw before the election. these people are way out of touch of reality on what is going to happen on monday. >> think about it. first it was the recount, now the putin/russian conspiracy, and now it gets more dark because now they're talking about -- and they are involved in the intimidation of some of these electors. it is really all one, big effort though, isn't it? i remember, i was there the night newt gingrich was elected, and by christmas after the november election in '94 he was
10:10 pm
the gingrich that stole christmas and broke poor tiny tim's crutch. i have to believe it is all about one thing, delegitimizing trump before he gets there. does that mean at the end of the day their goal is to destroy him, to make sure that he fails, to create an impression that he's not legitimately elected? >> yeah, absolutely. you know what? these progressives of course live by the life and political motto, by any means necessary. and this is how, of course, you have these electors who are reporting and the "new york post" reported on this, of the intimidation, the slew of death threats and phone calls and relentless e-mails they're getting. they're the ones that accused us of a climate of fear and intimidation and bullying. look in the mirror. >> yeah, it is amazing. all right. michelle malkin, tell us a little bit. what is the new investigative report series going to be about? >> thank you so much for asking, sean. it is, michelle malkin
10:11 pm
investigates. i'm digging deep with four episodes. it is something i wanted to do in my 25-year career in journalism and we have jaw-dropping investigations we have available for viewing right now. >> very proud of you. thank you for being with us. appreciate it. >> you bet. thank you. >> now, president-elect trump is back on his thank you tour. tonight he is in pennsylvania. we will play highlights from his rally. also tonight -- it is almost as if people in the intelligence community are carrying out a disinformation campaign against the president-elect of the united states. it is absolutely disgraceful. >> congressman king accusing the intel community of playing politics. is that happening? we will get reaction. laura ingraham is with us. coming up later. >> our source is not the russian government. >> in other words let me be clear, russia did not give you the podesta documents or anything from the dnc? >> that's correct. >> earlier today i interviewed wikileaks founder julian assange. we spoke out, and he spoke out about russian hacking and the reports and much more.
10:12 pm
we have highlights of that interview, and we'll get reaction from "the fives" kimberly guilfoyle and eric bolling as this busy news night continues on "hannity." ♪ bolling as this

10:16 pm
and, boy, did we get across that line, right? [cheers]. >> the patriots in this arena tonight stood up for themselves and for their families and showed the whole world that the american people still run our country. >> would not respect it now, and, believe me, it is going to turn and we're going to have this great, incredible, powerful military. but you know what? i don't think we're ever going to have to use it, and that would be very, very nice. america first. be very, very nice. >> my administration will focus squarely on the vital national security interests of the united states, and that means crushing isis and defeating radical islamic terrorism. we're going to defeat it, quickly. but to be a strong nation we
10:17 pm
must also be a wealthy or a rich nation. some people say, mr. trump -- now they say, mr. president-elect. can you believe it? can you believe this? just call me donald, folks. just call me donald. but they say, mr. president-elect, it doesn't sound good when you say rich nation. i say, we have to be a rich nation if we're going to rebuild our military, if we're going to build the wall. we have to be a rich nation. if we're going to -- if we're going to repeal and replace obamacare, we have to know what we're doing, and we have to be a wealthy nation again. we want the next generation of innovation and production to happen right here, right here in america, and right here in the great state of pennsylvania.
10:18 pm
all right. also tonight president-elect trump is responding to the hacking hysteria from the left. now, he tweeted earlier today, if russia or some other entity was hacking, well, why did the white house wait so long to act? why did they only complain after hillary lost? congressman pete king thinks some of the intelligence community may be trying to undermine president-elect trump. watch this. >> all we have heard from the intelligence community over the last several months is they could not say that there was any attempt to undermine hillary clinton to help donald trump. there was nothing at all ever told to us. in fact, they said they couldn't prove it, that there was an attempt to favor one candidate over the other. director clapper, the director of national intelligence, said that publicly on november 17th. it is almost as if people in the intelligence community are carrying out a disinformation campaign against the president-elect of the united states. it is absolutely disgraceful. if they're not doing it, then it must be someone in the house or
10:19 pm
the senate who is leaking false information, and there should be a full investigation of this. >> here with us now fox news contributor, editor in chief of lifezette, nationally syndicated radio host laura ingraham. there was nothing new here, laura. we know that. we know that the director of national intelligence, the fbi disagree. on top of that, we know the cia has played politics in the past. benghazi, great example. they never talked to the people on the ground. they went forward with the narrative out of langley that supported hillary's lie. >> it is almost like the intelligence community wants everyone to forget all of, you know, its black spots over the last several years, the things that they missed about chinese base militarization, the threat at the border being open, obviously benghazi is a big one, and many more. it is like -- it is almost like the shiny object of trump is over here, so no one will focus on the deficiencies that obviously exist. there are great men and women in the intelligence agencies, but
10:20 pm
this smacks of such bitterness, sean, and sour grapes. the fact of the matter is there is absolutely no proof that this changed the outcome of the election. i know the fox news poll showed that 59% of the respondents don't think it had any effect on the election. the idea that the voters were obsessed about russia getting into dnc e-mails, the question is and still is the importance of what was in hillary's e-mails. why did she delete e-mails? why did she go about, you know, scrubbing and bleach bitting her e-mail device? why did that happen. it is almost like we forgot the main part of this, which is her letting all of this information be vulnerable to hacking. instead, it is this completely made-up deal about, oh, this is affecting the integrity of the election. the election is done. the electoral college will meet. trump is going to be president. this is just an effort to undermine any mandate he
10:21 pm
believes he has. >> and delegitimize him. >> yeah. >> what do you make of the intimidation of the electors we've been talking about? >> i think it is abomb nabl. i had a guy on my show from colorado who is going to vote for hillary. he was a bernie supporter. and he's just grasping on to the russia thing. so it is russia, russia, russia. that's all they have. i mean they tried all of the other things, they tried comey. they tried, well, we have to get rid of the electoral college. they tried the recount with jill styn. they tried all of that and none of it worked. now it is all about russia stole the election for trump, we have to vote in john kasich. that's what this guy today said to me. we're going to make sure the house votes for john kasich or john mccain. it is crazy stuff. >> that's what the hollywood people are trying to say now too with this ridiculous campaign, and you don't have to like hillary, you don't have to vote hillary. for the first time in our lives, oh, the constitution that barack obama ignored and shredded the past eight years, you've got to listen to that constitution, and they're trying to appeal to it. it is obviously not going to
10:22 pm
work, but there's a certain depth of, you know, wanting almost a coupe over all of this. it is really severe, the reaction. >> well, and especially since they were so hot on trumpthat h election outcome. you played that clip last night. they beat on trump for weeks on the legitimacy of any election outcome, and he wins and they spend the next six weeks or whatever it has been trying to figure out a way to say, no, he didn't really win. it is so transparent, and instead of actually fixing the problems they have in their own party that even someone like joe manchin admitted today, they have problems appealing to middle class voters, they go to this hyperspeed mode on conspiracy theories and russia. i think it makes them look weaker. i think it makes trump look stronger and makes them look --
10:23 pm
>> my next question, is this a preview of coming attractions? first they try to delegitimize him, but in the end isn't it going to be an ongoing effort where they keep ratcheting it up to the point where they really want to destroy trump? they want to render his presidency impotent, isn't that what the real goal is here? >> yeah. i mean this is going to be warfare every day for the trump administration. i think banion is ready for that, kellyanne understands that. you know, they're going -- i think they will be ready for it, but it is real. if the economy starts getting a lot better, which i think it will, it will begin to look more and more irrelevant, but it is not going to stop them. that group center for american progress, john podesta's organization, they have this 501 c 4 they started that will be just a war room against trump. david rock has his organization that's just going to be devoted to going after trump morning, noon and night, but this is what they do. this is their life blood.
10:24 pm
but trump, trump is a big trophy. they want to try to take him down, and so everybody who supports trump and his agenda has to be aware of that and has to be really smart in how they stay on the offensive and don't start back pedaling with every criticism or allegation. >> to me, it all comes down to very simple formula. you made a lot of promises, very specific. >> yeah. >> keep your promises. check 'em off the list. keep your promises. so, all right, laura. great to see you. thanks for being with us. up next on this busy news night tonight here on "hannity." >> our source is not the russian government. >> so in other words let me be clear, russia did not give you the podesta documents or anything from the dnc? >> that's correct. all right. earlier today i spoke with wikileaks founder julian assange about the hacking hysteria and russia. we have the highlights. we will get reactions from "the fives" kimberly guilfoyle and eric bolling. joe manchin will come on the show and talk about the incoming

10:28 pm
already public somewhere else. >> without revealing your sources, would it be fair to say that the information as it relates to wikileaks and john podesta's e-mails came from within the united states? to you? >> we have said it has not come from a state party. we know where it came from originally, of course. it is john podesta, it is from the dnc, et cetera. there's been no claim that has been held up, maintained anymore that any of the information has been modified or is fake. >> so you can't confirm or deny if this information came from within the united states? >> we're unhappy that we felt that we needed to even say that it wasn't a state party. normally we say nothing at all, but we have a conflict of interest. we have an excellent reputation, a strong interest in protecting our sources, and so never saying anything about them, never ruling anyone in or anyone out.
10:29 pm
we sometimes do it. we don't like to do it. we have another interest, which is maximizing the impact of our publications. >> let me ask you this then. >> so here in order -- in order to prevent a distraction attack against our publications we had to come out and say no, it is not a state party. stop trying to distract in that way and pay attention to the content of the publication. >> so in other words when you say state party, it wasn't another state like russia or some other country? >> correct. >> how secure is america's agencies, american government, america's secrets? >> everything is almost completely insecure now. the computer systems have become so complex that it is not possible to understand all of the parts, let alone secure them. it is just impossible. >> so -- and that goes for individuals as well as the government? >> it goes for all of us. >> let me ask you about the chris craig murray, former british ambassador to
10:30 pm
uzbekistan, a source of yours. it was quoted he flew to washington d.c. for the e-mails. claimed he had a clan destin hand-off with one of the sources in the woods and the leaker's motivation was discussed as the corruption at the clinton foundation, and the tilting of the playing field towards bernie sanders. he said the documents came from inside leaks, not hacks. >> yeah, we don't comment on sourcing. craig murray is a former u.k. ambassador who is a friend of mine. he is not authorized to speak on behalf of wikileaks. >> are you angry that he gave this interview? >> i just don't want to go anywhere near that. >> is it much more likely that would have happened versus the russians? >> i don't want to be drawn on this. >> okay. >> we have to protect our sources. all right. here with reaction the co-host of the hit show "the five" eric bolling, kimberly guilfoyle.
10:31 pm
it is amazing, they ignore the collusion between the media and clinton camp. they ignored that, the racism, misogyny, sexism, anti-semitism at the dnc. the only thing that matters here, if it hurts donald trump let's make it up even though he denies it and there's no evidence that proves it. >> liberals, anti-trumpers, remember, hillary clinton didn't want to come out and concede the election that night. allegedly reports say she got violent with podesta and robby mook. it was their fault first. then it became voter fraud, so we had to go through this charade song and dance of recounts, it didn't work out. then it became it was the russian's fault, they affected the election. it is none of the above. they had a flawed candidate. hillary clinton is the worst candidate, not necessarily the worst human being but the worst candidate to run for president in my lifetime. the russians didn't make her come up with deplorables, and it wasn't donald trump who made
10:32 pm
obamacare premiums sky rocket the week of the election. >> julian assange is clear it was no state whatsoever. there was a report on daily about craig murray, wikileaks, former ambassador claiming he had a meeting, clan destin hand-off in a wooded area near american university with the source, and that the source was within the clinton campaign and they were disgusted with the clinton foundation and the tilting of the primary election field against bernie sanders, and that this source had legal access to the e-mails. >> right. pretty compelling factual narrative there to say exactly what the genesis of this was. you have to understand that doesn't comport with what they want to tell the american people is the story. they want to be able to try to undermine the presidency to come of donald trump, the movement that put him in, and to discount the flawed nature of their candidate who had no regard for the law, for the american people, and concealed and destroyed evidence and cost lives to be lost in benghazi.
10:33 pm
that's the real story. >> well, we know the cia did politicize what happened in benghazi because they advanced the false narrative about a youtube video, spontaneous demonstration, and the spontaneous demonstrators happened to have mortars and rpgs in their back pocket. are either of you worried at all about the electors being intimidated? >> i'm concerned that the cia wouldn't put -- there's supposed to be a house intel committee tomorrow, not off the record, but in private, and the cia wouldn't put an intel agent -- >> maybe they think the information is weak. >> since they made the claim that the russians affected the outcome of the election. since then they have come up with more evidence they were wrong in the first place. at the very least, show up and let the house intel committee find out. >> my source i spoke to told me there's a divide within the cia, that many of the old guard, the actual operatives, the people
10:34 pm
doing the hard work now are in, i guess, basically in conflict with some of the younger analyst types who are more politically leaned toward hillary clinton, and that's really what has gone on here. it shouldn't be that way, but so far you're not hearing specific evidence, credible evidence to say that the russians had anything to do with hacking or, in fact, affecting any voter fraud and the outcome of the united states presidential election. >> thanks, both of you, for sticking around late as you do. we appreciate you always being here. thank you. >> thanks, sean. >> thank you, sean. >> democratic senator joe manchin. we will ask him about the election and more tonight. crowds have been chanting, lock her up, at these trump thank you rallies. will hillary clinton ever be prosecuted? does trump have a say in it legally? we will talk about it with judge jeanine pirro straight ahead. ♪ legally?

10:42 pm
she told me, we're not going to leave anybody behind. i said, we can't. there's no plan. it has just been -- there's no sympathy or empathy whatsoever from the obama administration or president obama, what they have done or the perception of what they have done to my state. >> yeah. >> so we went back and forth and talked about all of that. when that came out, it just -- it just rocked me pretty bad. i went to her and, you know, we talked. i said, you know, this is horrible. she said, i made a mistake, i'm so sorry. i said, well, it is going to be very hard for the people to accept it. she would not have won west virginia no matter what, but that surely took it down a little further than what she would have been maybe. >> after the meeting you had with donald trump you said you had a very productive, informative meeting with the president-elect. you were honored and humbled to be considered for secretary of energy, which you took yourself out of consideration. >> right. >> tell us about that meeting. how did it go? what did you talk about? what were your impressions as a democrat dealing with the
