Hannity

Final pitches before New Hampshire primary from the GOP candidates

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," February 5, 2016. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST (voice-over):  Tonight...

DONALD TRUMP, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  You know the theme.  Look at all those red caps (ph).  Make America great again.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

HANNITY:  The countdown to New Hampshire is on, and new poll numbers have been released.  Our panel will break it all down.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  Are you 100 percent confident that nothing is going to come of this FBI investigation?

HILLARY CLINTON, D-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  I am 100 percent confident.

HANNITY:  Then a delusional Hillary Clinton claims the FBI will find that she did nothing wrong with her private e-mail server.

Plus, things got downright nasty at the Democratic debate.

CLINTON:  Let's talk about the issues.  Let's talk about the issues that divide us.

SEN. BERNIE SANDERS, D-VT., PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  Let's talk about issues!

CLINTON:  Let's -- we both agree...

HANNITY:  Plus, in a "Hannity" exclusive, the candidates make their final pitches before the New Hampshire primary.  That's right, their final closing statement. "Hannity" starts right here, right now.

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HANNITY:  And welcome to "Hannity."  Tonight, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and many other 2016 candidates -- they're going to make the final pitches to you, the voters, before the New Hampshire primary.  We sent cameras to all their locations.  You're going to hear that only here on "Hannity."

But first, New Hampshire -- the primary is just four days away, and tonight, we have brand-new poll numbers out of the Granite State.  An NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll shows that Trump is out in front, 30 percent of the vote.  Rubio comes in second in this poll at 17, Ted Cruz in third with 15 percent.  And then you have John Kasich with 10 and Jeb Bush with 9.

You have a U. Mass Lowell 7 (ph) News poll out today finds Trump with a strong lead at 34 percent, Rubio in second with 15 percent, Ted Cruz a close third with 14 percent.  Coming up next, Kasich and Bush, and according to a new ARG poll, Trump has a sizable lead with 36 percent, Rubio in second with 15,  Kasich 14 percent and next are Cruz and Bush and Chris Christie.

Here with reaction, from The Washington Times, Charles Hurt, the co-host of "The Five," Kimberly "K.G." Guilfoyle.  How are you?

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, "THE FIVE" CO-HOST:  Very good.(INAUDIBLE)

HANNITY:  Well, we call you K.H. here, so (INAUDIBLE)

GUILFOYLE:  Yes.

HANNITY:  You looks at these numbers, it seems pretty overwhelming.  Trump continues to dominate.  These are post-Iowa caucus polls.  Looks like the Granite State is holding strong for Trump.

GUILFOYLE:  Absolutely.  It's Trump's to lose.  I mean, keep the momentum going.  I don't think there's any chance that he is going to not deliver fully in New Hampshire, especially after, you know, Iowa.  He did very well there.  He got a tremendous amount of votes.  But I know -- I'm sure he would have wanted to beat, you know, Ted Cruz.

Now's your chance.  Beat them all.  Beat convincingly.  He says he wants to win.  He wants to be president.  He wants the nomination.  That's how you do it.  And then take it down, boom, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Florida, and move on to the rest.

HANNITY:  And Charles, it seems to be a strategic shift by Donald Trump inasmuch as he's doing more retail politics.  He's added a lot more New Hampshire events.  They seem to be building a ground game which was apparently really missing in Iowa, so a big difference in their approach to New Hampshire, and it's a primary, not a caucus.

CHARLES HURT, WASHINGTON EXAMINER:  Yes.  And I think he's being a little bit more careful in New Hampshire.  I think what we're seeing is more of that -- the sort of lower-key demeanor, like we saw with his concession speech out in Iowa, where he congratulated Ted Cruz.

But I think -- and I think Kimberly's exactly right, and I think that -- you know, that -- this is a must win state for him.  The other thing that I think is kind of interesting from those polls is despite, you know, Cruz's victory and -- Ted Cruz's victory in Iowa, it does not seem to have done a whole lot to help him in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire was already a pretty uphill battle for him, obviously, but -- but obviously, you know, these polls indicate that it's not going to look -- you know, he's not going to -- it does not look like he's going to make some sort of surprise upset here.

HANNITY:  And...

HURT:  (INAUDIBLE) and really complicate things for Donald.

HANNITY:  Yes.  And you know, Kimberly, while this Carson-Trump-Cruz battle went on this week, he's seemed to have now left that behind and now is -- he seems more focused on issues.

GUILFOYLE:  Right.  Hit it and quit it.  Move on and get focused on getting the votes.  Don't sleep at night, if you don't have to.  Shake every hand in New Hampshire that you can.  For sure, it's retail politics.  And spend the bucks.  Spend the bucks for an effective ground game because we saw the proof's in the pudding.

Rubio, Cruz did that.  It worked for them in Iowa.  But don't forget we've got a lot -- a lot of other players trying to do very well.  It's do or die time in New Hampshire with Kasich, with Christie, with Jeb Bush, and they're all putting it on the line.  So let's see it.

HANNITY:  How will...

GUILFOYLE:  And Rubio's hungry.  He's getting after it.

HANNITY:  How well...

GUILFOYLE:  He looks like he grew three inches.

HANNITY:  Well, OK.  So as far as Kasich and Christie and Jeb, how well do they have to do for them to continue?

GUILFOYLE:  Well, I think they all know they've got to place very well.  Everybody wants that, like, coveted at least, you know, third place spot to be able to continue on and go forward and have momentum.  Kasich's on record saying if, Listen, if I don't do well, if I get blown away in New Hampshire, you know, it's over for me.

But he's got some tremendous endorsements.  Chris Christie's done more town halls, you know, than anybody and spent the most days in New Hampshire.  So this was really his game plan to begin with, was to hit the town halls hard, and he's done that.  So let's see if it's able to resonate into some, you know, serious numbers for him.  And also do not, do not count Jeb Bush out.

HANNITY:  Really?

GUILFOYLE:  Yes.

HANNITY:  You think -- why do you say that?

GUILFOYLE:  Because he's really invested a lot of money and time there, as well.  And I think he knows that he needs to do well there.  We've seen kind of the Bush big guns come out.  I mean, I'm a huge fan of Barbara Bush.

HANNITY:  Mom and W.

GUILFOYLE:  Absolutely.  And W.  So we have 43 out there campaigning for him, and his mother.  They did a fantastic job on the morning shows today.  And you know, this is very likable.  He's done well traditionally there in New Hampshire.  So I think that's a huge asset and advantage for him.

HANNITY:  Charlie...

GUILFOYLE:  And also going forward for South Carolina.

HANNITY:  Charlie, if it's one, two, three, Trump, Rubio, Cruz, Trump, Cruz, Rubio, Cruz -- whatever it happens to be, does that pretty much make this going forward a three-person race, even though we're only talking about 3 percent of the delegates?

HURT:  I think that I would go one step further than what Kimberly just said and say it is absolutely make or break in New Hampshire for Jeb Bush or Kasich or for Christie.  They have to do well here because going -- you know, leaving out of here and going into these other states, they're going to be very hostile to the -- to the -- campaigns that these guys are running.

And I also agree with what Kimberly said about Jeb Bush because if there's a time for him to break out, it is -- it's going to be now.  And I think...

HANNITY:  But the polls show the guy that seems to be breaking out the most is Kasich.

HURT:  Yes.

HANNITY:  Kasich seems to have the best -- at least from the poll numbers.  And by the way, historically, I was warning this audience that Iowa polls are unreliable and they can be off by a lot.  I turned out to be right.

HURT:  And it's a caucus.

HANNITY:  New Hampshire polls are a little more reliable.

HURT:  Yes.  And -- and -- but the thing about Jeb Bush is this, that he has run his entire campaign running away from his family's name.  He doesn't even have his family's name in his -- you know, it's just Jeb.  And so -- so he smartly realizes that it's now -- it's make or break now.  He has no choice.  So he has taken his entire campaign and completely turned it inside out, and is doing the exact opposite of everything he's done.

And we know how bad the first part was.  So this might -- you know, I don't know.  Maybe this makes it worse?  Maybe it saves him.  I don't know.  But it's probably smart to do the opposite of everything he's been doing so far.

HANNITY:  K.G., look at...

GUILFOYLE:  Put it on the line now.  It's really exciting.  I think New Hampshire is really going to be the big tell.  You're going to see a few other people I think drop out after these results come in, and we're going to get down to the business of really selecting the best candidate to be the nominee.

HANNITY:  MUR/CNN, Sanders plus 31,  NBC/Wall Street Journal, Sanders plus 20, U. Mass 7 News Sanders plus 22, ARG, Sanders plus 16.  Wow! And now nationally, with a poll that came out 44-42...

GUILFOYLE:  Well, what does that tell you?  That's within the statistical margin of error.  If I'm, like, Hillary Clinton, you can't be even hiding under the covers at this point.  Silent screaming inside?  You better start praying, lighting candles, do something because you need help.

HANNITY:  All right, so does South Carolina then become her firewall?

GUILFOYLE:  (INAUDIBLE)

HANNITY:  Right?

GUILFOYLE:  There you go.  You have to.  Can you imagine, especially with this close as the results were in Iowa?  My gosh, that was terrible for her.  And now New Hampshire -- I mean, listen, unless something's completely crazy, she's going to take a beating there.

HANNITY:  You know, and I'm not convinced, from my standpoint, Charles -- I give Bernie Sanders Iowa for a lot of different reasons.

HURT:  Oh, sure.

HANNITY:  Six coin tosses...

GUILFOYLE:  Crazy!

HANNITY:  ... the Des Moines Register saying what happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle.

GUILFOYLE:  Sure.

HANNITY:  They talked about -- you know, they found so many inconsistencies.  They can't return -- they can't even give all the votes over at this point.  It seems like something corrupt is going on.  It doesn't smell good.

HURT:  Yes.  And at the very, very least, even if Bernie Sanders in the end doesn't win this race, he can -- in the primary -- he can point to the fact that he has totally defined the conversation and he has forced Hillary to run so far to the left that once she gets out of this, if she gets out of this, and assuming she's not arrested...

(LAUGHTER)

HURT:  If she into a general election...

HANNITY:  Assume?

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  She's assuming a lot, though, that she's not arrested.

HURT:  I know.  I know.  But she did win six of six coin tosses, so that's -- you know, so...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  Yes, I want the coin.

GUILFOYLE:  Yes, she...

HANNITY:  Heads I win, tails you lose.  All right...

GUILFOYLE:  They should put her in for the Super Bowl Sunday for the coin toss!  Oh, yes!  It's me again!  I win!

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY:  Hillary wins.  Exactly.

GUILFOYLE:  The coin can't help her, though, in New Hampshire, though, that's for sure.

HANNITY:  Put your legal hat on for on second...

GUILFOLYE:  I'll do it.

HANNITY:  ... because you're a former prosecutor.

GUILFOLYE:  Yes.

HANNITY:  And we've looked at the law.  We've identified, through Rudy Giuliani, former prosecutor also...

GUILFOLYE:  Yeah.

HANNITY:  ... 16 potential felonies that she may have committed.

GUILFOYLE:  Absolutely.

HANNITY:  And every single e-mail that's either top secret or special access program, SAP, classified, which higher than top secret, would represent an individual felony count.

GUILFOYLE:  Correct.

HANNITY:  Now, if there's criminal referral by the FBI, which it seems is going to come...

GUILFOYLE:  How could it not?

HANNITY:  How could it not?

GUILFOYLE:  How could it not?

HANNITY:  Because it...

GUILFOYLE:  But then goes to DOJ.  And you think -- what do you think, you know, Mr. Lynch is going to do about it?  This is the problem.  So you're going to see -- and it's going to -- it's not supposed to, but it would very likely, right, get leaked.  We're going to hear about it.

HANNITY:  Oh, it'll get leaked.

GUILFOYLE:  If they make a recommendation for an indictment and they do not pick that up, what an outrage.  And she will still be so damaged from that!

HANNITY:  Can you imagine Comey -- everything I hear about Comey...

GUILFOYLE:  Yes.

HANNITY:  I don't know him -- straight shooter.  He was willing to resign...

GUILFOYLE:  Yes.

HANNITY:  ... over the John Ashcroft Gonzales issue.

GUILFOYLE:  And perhaps he will over this.

HANNITY:  Could you imagine if he resigned?

GUILFOYLE:  All the U.S. attorneys that I know say he's been a very qualified, straight shooter, credible, a man with a lot of integrity.  So he's got to do the right thing where justice is concerned, and hopefully, it will prevail.

HANNITY:  Maybe you should be the attorney general because if it's a Republican administration, you could indict Hillary.

GUILFOYLE:  There you go.

HANNITY:  There you go.  That works.  All right.

GUILFOYLE:  Yes, yes.  Put me in, Coach!

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY:  All right, thank you.

And coming up next tonight right here on "Hannity"...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  Are you 100 percent confident that nothing is going to come of this FBI investigation?

HILLARY CLINTON (D-NY), FMR. SEC. OF STATE, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  I am 100 percent confident.  This is a security review that was requested.  It is being carried out.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  All right, Hillary goes off the rails saying, well, she's got nothing to worry about with the FBI looking into the private server scandal.  Really? And then later tonight...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CLINTON:  I know we can combat climate change and be the clean energy superpower of the 21st century!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Hillary Clinton's Howard Dean moment.  Tucker Carlson, Leslie Marshall will be here to debate who won the week.  Here's a hint.  It was not Hillary!

Ant then later, a "Hannity" exclusive tonight.  All the 2016 candidates heading into New Hampshire make their final pitch.  We sent our cameras to all of them, 60 to 90 seconds, their final pitch, why they should win New Hampshire.  That's only something you'll see here on "Hannity" straight ahead.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(NEWSBREAK)

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CLINTON:  I never sent or received any classified material.  They are retroactively classifying it.  I agree completely with Secretary Powell who said that this is an absurdity.  And so I think the American people will know it's an absurdity.  I have absolutely no concerns about it whatsoever.

(CROSSTALK)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  There is an open FBI investigation into this matter about how you may have handled classified material.  Are you 100 percent confident that nothing is going to come of this FBI investigation?

CLINTON:  I am 100 percent confident.  This is a security review that was requested.  It is being carried out.  It will be resolved.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  All right, Hillary Clinton at last night's Democratic debate saying she's confident the FBI investigation into her private server will result in nothing.

But that wasn't the only tense moment between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.  Take a look at just some of the fireworks.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CLINTON:  You being the self-proclaimed gatekeeper for progressivism, I don't know anyone else who fits that definition.

SANDERS:  I mean, instead of arguing about definitions, let's talk about the...

CLINTON:  Well, you -- you began it yesterday...

SANDERS:  Let's talk about...

CLINTON:  ... with your comments.

SANDERS:  ... what we should do.

CLINTON:  Honestly, Senator Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment.

I think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign...

SANDERS:  Oh!

CLINTON:  ... have been carrying out in recent weeks, and let's talk...

(BOOS)

CLINTON:  Let's talk about the issues.  Let's talk about the issues that divide us and let's...

SANDERS:  Let us talk about issues.

CLINTON:  We both agree with campaign finance reform.

SANDERS:  Let's talk about issues.

CLINTON:  I worked hard for McCain-Feingold.

SANDERS:  Let's...

CLINTON:  I want to reverse Citizens United.

SANDERS:  Let's -- let's talk about issues.

CLINTON:  And so let's talk about issues.

SANDERS:  Let's talk about issues.  All right, let's talk about why in the 1990s, Wall Street got deregulated.  Did it have anything to do with the fact that Wall Street provided -- spent billions of dollars on lobbying and campaign contributions?  Well, some people might think, yes, that had some influence.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  All right, joining us now is former Obama surrogate, political consultant Matthew Littman is with us.  Former NYPD detective, Fox News contributor Bo Dietl and former Clinton pollster, Fox News contributor Doug Schoen.

All right, the inspector general for the intelligence department, a guy appointed by Obama, a guy confirmed by a Democratic majority in the Senate-- he's the one that says that they found dozens and dozens of...

DOUG SCHOEN, FOX CONTRIBUTOR:  Right.

HANNITY:  ... e-mails with SAP, special access program, classification. OK, that's not retroactive.  What she said is an outright lie!  It's just not true!

SCHOEN:  Sean, this is a real political and legal problem for her.

HANNITY:  It's a legal problem.  This is the FBI, Democratic inspector general!

SCHOEN:  Well, it's political and legal because it has legal implications and political implications for her candidacy.  But I regard it, as a Clinton supporter, as something that is very serious.  We still don't know what the Justice Department will do.  But I'm not 100 percent certain it will be resolved to her satisfaction.

BO DIETL, FOX CONTRIBUTOR:  You know, there's two areas here.  One area is if she intentionally did it.  The other area is negligence.

HANNITY:  But the law doesn't matter.

DIETL:  No, but the negligence side, even if she was negligent with it, it's still a crime.  And there's a lot of things on here I think with a lot of these political contributions and on these e-mails -- there's a lot of good stuff there.  When her husband, the president -- I think it was over $110 million worth of speeches, UBS -- all of a sudden, they did a deal with UBS.  He got $1.5 million for doing a speech for 15 minutes!

This thing stinks!  All she's about is one thing, money!  That Clinton Foundation, coming through Canada -- every one of these contributions are coming from countries that are not really favorable to the United States!

HANNITY:  Let's go to Mr. Littman.  Now, look, you were up against the Clinton machine.  Things got really personal, Bill Clinton accusing the Obama campaign, They played the race card on me and they planned to do it from the very beginning.  So there's been bad blood with Clinton and Obama.

Now you've Clinton going after poor Bernie Sanders with the "artful smear" comment.  It almost seems like we're back in 2008.  The front-runner is losing to an insurgent candidate!  In this case, it's a 74-year-old curmudgeon socialist from Vermont!

(LAUGHTER)

HANNITY:  It doesn't get any worse, Mr. Littman, than that!

MATTHEW LITTMAN, POLITICAL CONSULTANT:  From Brooklyn.  Yes, no, well -- well, look, I think in the Democratic Party, the one thing that's been shown over time is liberals really like an underdog, and in Bernie Sanders's case, he's promising a lot of people free health care, basically free college...

HANNITY:  Free, free.

LITTMAN:  ... basically, you can eat pizza for lunch every day and not get fat and...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  Wait a minute!  But you heard Hillary's Iowa speech...

LITTMAN:  ... the Bernie Sanders campaign.

HANNITY:  After she lost Iowa, she offered everything free like Bernie!  She sounded like Bernie on steroids!

(LAUGHTER)

LITTMAN:  No.

HANNITY:  Yes!

LITTMAN:  I don't agree with that because you...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  She makes a list of every single leftist thing that she can offer for free!  Let's roll that tape.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CLINTON:  We can create more good-paying jobs and raise incomes for hard- working Americans again.  I know that we can finish the job of universal health care coverage for every single man, woman and child!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

CLINTON:  I know we can combat climate change and be the clean energy superpower of the 21st century!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

CLINTON:  I know we can make college affordable and get student debt off the backs of young people!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  The only thing -- the only thing missing was the Dean scream, angry and...

LITTMAN:  Wait.  Excuse me.  Whoa!

HANNITY:  ... more left-wing than Bernie!  That's not her!

LITTMAN:  Sean, you said everything was free.  She said nothing in there that was free.

HANNITY:  OK.

LITTMAN:  More clean energy jobs...

HANNITY:  You didn't hear the same thing I did.

LITTMAN:  ... less student debt?  That's not free.

HANNITY:  Bo?

DIETL:  You know what I'm starting to see?  I'm starting to see the real Hillary Clinton.  Some of my Secret Service friends tell me about little episodes that happened in the White House with President Bill there, and this is the lady that you're starting the see right now!

HANNITY:  See, that's what I love about Bo.  Bo has the connections to get the real story.

DIETL:  Well, $15 million from Wall Street.  Now she hates Wall Street.  She will say and she will do anything to get that nomination!

HANNITY:  I agree with you.

DIETL:  She's a liar, and that's the facts!

HANNITY:  And by the way, and the American people...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  The people see her.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  Don't you feel that, Sean?

HANNITY:  I do.  And she will lose.  I think she is an unelectable candidate for your side.  Let me give you an example.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  So that also means you don't think the Justice Department will do anything, as I don't.

HANNITY:  I actually think -- well, here's what I think is how it will go down.  I think there'll be a criminal referral.  I think that the Justice Department will resist.  I think Comey will resign.  Other FBI people will resign.  They will leak the entire, you know, list of evidence.  And she is unelectable.  That's what I think.

Now, let's go to the issue of her duplicity.  Answering the question, $675,000 for three speeches to Goldman Sachs -- let's play the answer.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  One of the things that Senator Sanders points to, and a lot of your critics point to, is you made three speeches for Goldman Sachs.  You were paid $675,000 for three speeches.  Was that a mistake?  I mean, was that a bad error in judgment?

CLINTON:  Look, I made speeches to lots of groups.  I told them what I thought.  I answered questions.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  But did you have to be paid $675,000?

CLINTON:  Well, I don't know.  That's what they offered.

(LAUGHTER)

CLINTON:  So -- you know, every secretary of state that I know has done that.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  But that's (INAUDIBLE) office and not running for an office again.

CLINTON:  Well, I didn't know...

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  You must have known.

CLINTON:  To be honest, I wasn't -- I wasn't committed to running.  I didn't -- I didn't know whether I was...

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  You didn't think you were going to run for president again?

CLINTON:  I didn't.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  It's just like the Clinton Foundation.  She won't criticize Saudi Arabia.  They give money to the Clinton Foundation and they buy her silence on the abuse of women and human rights record.  It's the same thing!

SCHOEN:  Well, You see, I think, unless we're close to the Saudis, Sean, to combat Iran, we've got a real problem.  But what she's not doing...

HANNITY:  She took money from the Saudis and she won't criticize that women have to dress a certain way, can't drive a car, can't leave the house without a male relative...

(CROSSTALK)

SCHOEN:  ... to say that if we don't work with them...

HANNITY:  That's not the same as taking their money and not speaking out about their human rights failures!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  (INAUDIBLE) give them a lot of money for their defense, which we...

HANNITY:  No.  Hillary gained money for the foundation!  You're missing the point!

SCHOEN:  I understand.  She's using it to help women.

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  All right, let me -- let me make sure.  We'll get back to Bo in a second.  Matt, I want to -- I don't want to leave you out here.  And she's...

LITTMAN:  Thank you.

HANNITY:  She is hugging Barack Obama like she's trying to wrap herself around -- you know why?  Because I think she wants Barack Obama to use his influence with Loretta Lynch and not push for an indictment, which every other American would get!

LITTMAN:  Sean, I'm shocked that you feel that way.  I don't agree with you.  I'm sure that surprises you, too.

HANNITY:  I'm stunned.

LITTMAN:  On the issue -- if you want me to talk about the issue of the speaking fees and Wall Street?  Because I'm a speech writer, and I've been writing speeches for a lot of people who speak to a lot of corporations.  That's a whole big business...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  $225,000??

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  And how many get $225,000 a speech?

LITTMAN:  That's right.  By the way, can I tell you...

LITTMAN:  I could actually tell you.

HANNITY:  How many?

LITTMAN:  I can actually tell you who gets those fees.

HANNITY:  Who?

LITTMAN:  There are a lot of -- you'd be surprised.

HANNITY:  How many get 225,000 grand?

(CROSSTALK)

LITTMAN:  ... Sean Penn or George Clooney or Kevin Spacey.

HANNITY:  I got to up my fee...

(CROSSTALK)

LITTMAN:  You do have to up your fee!

HANNITY:  What?

LITTMAN:  But it's true.  And they get -- they get -- it is true.  And they get paid to speak about their experiences...

HANNITY:  But the point is the obvious...

LITTMAN:  ... and leadership...

HANNITY:  ... conflict of interest!  People buy her influence.  And this was what the whole Clinton Foundation issue is about.

(CROSSTALK)

LITTMAN:  ... not buying the influence.

HANNITY:  Yes, they are!

DIETL:  Absolutely, they are.  With UBS...

LITTMAN:  No, they're no.  They're just giving speeches!

DIETL:  Hold on a second!  OK, how do you explain...

(CROSSTALK)

DIETL:  ... Clinton $1.5 million from UBS, and all of a sudden, they give them a fine.  That was with the bank accounts that were being hidden over there, all these things set up and money then floats into the Clinton Foundation!

You've got criminal people involved there!  And then you got that guy -- who was that guy that the -- he was a billionaire.  He stole -- he was selling arms, and then all of a sudden, he pardoned...

HANNITY:  Marc Rich.  Marc Rich.

DIETL:  It was all part of that!  The Clintons' roost...

HANNITY:  Bo...

DIETL:  ... will come home to roost.

HANNITY:  The chickens will come home to roost.

(CROSSTALK)

SCHOEN:  She will be the nominee, and given the dysfunction on the Republican side, she has got as much chance to be elected as anybody.

HANNITY:  Wow.  All right, guys.  Thank you all for being with us.

LITTMAN:  I agree with Doug.

DIETL:  I agree with Mr. Obama (ph).

LITTMAN:  Thank you.

DIETL:  I agree with that.

HANNITY:  God help us all.

Coming up next tonight on this busy news night right here on "Hannity"...

TRUMP:  This guy Ted Cruz -- Ted Cruz goes out.  You talk about liars!

SEN. TED CRUZ, R-TEXAS, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  Donald Trump is very rattled right now.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  All right, this week, Donald Trump, Senator Ted Cruz sharpened their attacks against each other, and Hillary Clinton continued to lose to a 74-year-old crotchety curmudgeon socialist of Vermont.  We'll check in with Tucker Carlson and Leslie Marshall.  And we'll also debate the question of who won the week in politics.  That's coming up.

And later tonight...

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP:  If I'm president, we will indeed make America great again.

SEN. MARCO RUBIO, R-FLA., PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  I will unite the conservative movement.  I will grow the conservative movement.  And we will win this election.

CRUZ:  If you're fed up with Washington cronyism, I ask for your support.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  All right, coming up in a "Hannity" exclusive, we went to all the 2016 Republican candidates to make their final pitches to you, the voters, before next week's primary.  We gave them 60 to 90 seconds.

That and a whole lot more straight ahead tonight on "Hannity."

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  And welcome back to "Hannity."  Now, it's been a very interesting week in the 2016 presidential race.  On the Republican side, you have Senator Ted Cruz -- he won the Iowa GOP caucuses -- and his war of words with Donald Trump, of course, escalated.  On the Democratic side, Hillary -
- well, I would argue she lost to Bernie Sanders Iowa and she struggled to answer many questions during a Democratic town hall and debate.  So who won the week?

Joining us now, FOX News contributors Tucker Carlson, Leslie Marshall.  All right, who won the week, Leslie?  Don't say Hillary because I'm going to cut you off and cast you into the shadows.  Who?

LESLIE MARSHALL, FOX CONTRIBUTOR:  OK.  On the -- I can say left and right, right?  On the left, I am a Hillary supporter.  However, I think Bernie Sanders won the week, and not because of debates or town hall meetings, because of the number of youth that he had come out and people first time to caucus in Iowa, because of how well he did in Iowa, how well he's doing right now in New Hampshire via the polls and how much money he raised in a 24-hour period in a grass roots effort.

On the right, Marco Rubio.  Marco Rubio has definitely...

HANNITY:  How does the...

(CROSSTALK)

HANNITY:  Wait a minute!

(CROSSTALK)

MARSHALL:  ... coming in second in New Hampshire.

HANNITY:  How does the -- as Trump and Cruz have been complaining, I think with a little bit of justification, Marco came in third.  He had a great performance.  I think Marco's poll numbers in New Hampshire look good.  Nationally, he's doing well.  I'm not -- I think he did well, but how does he get the -- how, when you come in third, do you win the week?  Because you were expected to come in seventh?

LESLIE MARSHALL, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR:  No.  Well, that is part of it.  No.  
Because --

HANNITY:  He was expected to come in third.  

MARSHALL:  No, because I told you.  I you this before and I'm saying it again.  I think Marco Rubio is going to win New Hampshire, and I am a Democrat that doesn't want this guy to win or to be the nominee because I think he's the toughest for Hillary or Bernie to beat.  But I think Marco Rubio's the guy to watch.  New Hampshire voters are very different than Iowa voters.  

HANNITY:  All right, I got it.  

MARSHALL:  They are not evangelicals.  They are more moderate.  They are very different and I think they are going to go for Marco Rubio.  

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS HOST:  I hate to say it, but I agree with Leslie, but for entirely different reasons.  Bernie lost Iowa because of the North Korean coin toss, but he's won the argument.  He's completely defined what it is to be a Democrat in 2016.  Hillary is not setting the terms of the debate.  You saw the debate the other night.  He is.  She is trying to become the socialist that he's been for 30 years, so he is totally in charge of the Democratic Party right now amazingly enough.  

And on the Republican side, I agree with you completely, it must be frustrating for the other candidates to see the man who came in third declared the winner, but he is the winner in this one sense.  The donor class has swung behind him and that's going to become really obvious I think if it isn't already, and the conservative establishment, the Republican establishment in Washington has decided he's the only acceptable candidate.  So we'll see what the actual voters think of that but, his Iowa performance really did elevate him to that in their eyes.  

HANNITY:  I think the person with the worst moment of the week is Hillary. Let me tell you why.  Go back and remember there was a guy supposed to win Iowa, and his name was Howard Dean.  And when he lost he had a meltdown.  You may remember this.  

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

HOWARD DEAN, D-FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  Not only are we going to New Hampshire, Tom Harkin, we are going to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico!  We're going to California and Texas and New York!  And we're going to South Dakota and Oregon and Washington and Michigan!  And then we're going to Washington, D.C. to take back the White House!

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  He was laughing.  He was happy.  Hillary was not happy with the results, and as our own Ed Henry reported, she was supposed to be introduced by Chelsea and by Bill.  Then she comes out in the middle of a Tom Harkin speech.  There she is, not expecting her.  No rope line, no introduction, and her Howard Dean moment.  Angry, and she shoots all the way to the left.  Watch this.  

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CLINTON:  I know we can create more good paying jobs and raise incomes for hard working Americans again.  I know that we can finish the job of universal health care coverage for every single man, woman, and child.  

(APPLAUSE)

CLINTON:  I know we can combat climate change and be the clean energy superpower of the 21st century.  

(APPLAUSE)

CLINTON:  I know we can make college affordable and get student debt off the backs of young people.  

(APPLAUSE)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  I think that's a disaster.  It's going to come back politically, Tucker, to hurt her in a general election because she sounds more liberal, socialist than Bernie.  And the anger issue, she's already not likable.  

CARLSON:  The whole point of the Hillary candidacy was she's reasonable.  She's been around.  She's liberal but she's not crazy.  She didn't honeymoon in the Soviet Union.  And all of a sudden she is aping Bernie Sanders because she's weak.  They're totally afraid.  Bernie Sanders raised more money this past week than she did.  I don't think he's going to be the nominee, but I'm amazed at how easy it is to rattle Hillary Clinton.  She's much more brittle, much more fragile than any of us imagined she was.  
That's the real lesson I think.  

HANNITY:  The fact that you don't see this, in the light that I do, Leslie, means that I think you're just not seeing Hillary.  Sixth-some odd percent of Americans don't like her, don't think she's honest and trustworthy.  How do you win with that?  

MARSHALL:  If you look at the national polls, and I'm not talking Quinnipiac who seems to have a love affair with Senator Sanders, she has a healthy lead --

HANNITY:  A poll came out today, 44-42.  

MARSHALL:  That's -- I'm talking about Quinnipiac.  That's the only poll.  If you look at Real Clear Politics, which I know you like, Sean, she has a much healthier lead --

HANNITY:  Bernie caught up big time this week.  

MARSHALL:  And other than Rubio she has a chance to beat all the other GOP candidates.  It's funny when you say I can't believe you don't see this as I see it.  I'm sitting here thinking the same thing about you, Sean.  I don't see that as crazy.  I see that as passion.  

HANNITY:  Passion?  

MARSHALL:  I don't see that as anger.  I see that as excitement and rallying the troops.

HANNITY:  Excitement?  

MARSHALL:  No.  I see her being excited, passionate, rallying her troops, rallying her base.  

HANNITY:  I see her scared to death of a socialist, and she now had to push herself even further to the left, Tucker, and she did it out of frustration because she didn't perform well in Iowa.  

CARLSON:  Frustration and terror.  I mean, Hillary if you think about it for a second has only won two elections, both of them totally inside jobs in an overwhelmingly Democratic state, New York.  She lined up support from the people who run the party and she was sort of guided through Election Day.  There's no evidence at all that she's good at this.  

By the way, I don't think she's bad at everything, but she's terrible at running for office.  She doesn't have deep and firm beliefs, and it's all embarrassingly on display when she tries to run.  

HANNITY:  Add to that the un-likability factor, when you add to that people feel she's dishonest, a liar, not trustworthy, and add to that I think anger in a speech, and then she's moving real hard left, I don't think that going to play well in the general election.  But, Leslie, I'll take your comments on face value, and I know you love her.  Thank you, guys, for being with us.  Appreciate it, thank you.  

All right, Super Bowl predictions, quick.  Who do you like?  Quick, Leslie, pick.  

MARSHALL:  Oh, oh, who's playing?  No.  Just joking.  I'm going to go for --

HANNITY:  Quick.  

MARSHALL:  I'm going for the Denver Broncos.  

HANNITY:  Tucker?  

CARLSON:  Panthers, come on.  

HANNITY:  My heart says Peyton.  My head say the Panthers, but I'm going with Denver.  

Coming next, on "Hannity" --

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TRUMP:  If I'm president, we will, indeed, make America great again.  

RUBIO:  I will unite the conservative movement.  I will grow the conservative movement, and we will win this election.  

CRUZ:  If you're fed up with Washington cronyism, I ask for your support.  

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  Coming up, a "Hannity" exclusive.  The 2016 GOP presidential candidates, we went, we gave them a camera, and they made their final pitch to you, the voters, before the New Hampshire primary, that and more on this busy news night on "Hannity."  

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  Welcome back to "Hannity."  So in just four days the voters in New Hampshire will cast their ballots.  And over the past 48 hours we tracked down the very busy presidential candidates and we asked all of them to give us their final pitch to you, the voters, especially in the granite state.  
This is something you'll only see right here on "Hannity."  Here's part one.  

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

TRUMP:  My theme is "Make America Great Again."  We're losing with China, with Mexico, with Japan on trade.  Everybody's beating us.  Billions and billions of dollars is gone.  We have people that don't know what they're doing.  We have a president that doesn't know what he's doing.  Our military is being depleted.  Our veterans aren't taken care of.  Our borders are open and people are pouring through like water.  We can't continue to do things like this.  Obamacare is a disaster.  It's got to be repealed and replaced.  I'll do that immediately.  We have to preserve our Second Amendment.  We have to get rid of Common Core.  There's so many things to do, but we're going to do them.  If I'm president, we will, indeed, make America great again.  

RUBIO:  Hi, this is Marco Rubio.  Here in New Hampshire next Tuesday you have an important decision to make.  This election is not just a choice basically candidates or political parties.  This election is a referendum on our identity as a nation and as a people.  This is the greatest country in the history of the world.  But after seven years of Barack Obama a lot of the things that make America special are now under assault and doubt.  We cannot lose this election.  We cannot lose to Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton.  We have to win.  

If I'm our nominee we will win.  I will unite the conservative movement.  I will grow the conservative movement, and we will win this election and then begin the hard work of turning this great country around.  That's why this Tuesday I am asking you for your vote to that together we can leave for our children what our parents left us -- the single greatest nation in the history of all mankind.  

Thank you for listening to me.  God bless all of you in New Hampshire.  I'll see you Tuesday.  

CRUZ:  Monday night Iowa shocked the Washington establishment.  All of the pundits said we would lose.  But the Reagan coalition came together and the grassroots won a stunning victory.  In Iowa, I campaigned openly against the ethanol mandate, something everyone said was political suicide, and yet the people of Iowa rose up and said our country is more important.  

To the people of New Hampshire and South Carolina, if you're fed up with Washington cronyism, I ask for your support.  If you want a president who will repeal Obamacare, ask who led the fight against Obamacare.  If you want a president who will stop amnesty, ask who led the fight against the Rubio-Schumer amnesty deal.  If you want a president who will defend the Second Amendment, ask who led the fight against Obama's assault on our right to keep and bear arms.  

I have spent my whole life defending the constitution, and if we stand together we can and will restore America.  

JOHN KASICH, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  I've been a leader that's balanced budgets, cut taxes, created a good environment for job creation, and raised an opportunity for everybody to succeed.  In other words, build a strong economy and make sure we leave no one behind.  And I've been able to do it working both with Republicans and Democrats to bring people together to lift our country.  You know, at the end of the day we may be Republicans and Democrats, but at the end, we are Americans, and working together we can solve our most vexing problems and renew the spirit of America.  

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HANNITY:  And coming up next, right here tonight on "Hannity" --

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JEB BUSH, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  On Tuesday night voters will be able to decide who can keep them safer, stronger, and freer.  I have detailed plans to do just that.  

CARLY FIORINA, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  Citizens, it's time to take our country back.  

BEN CARSON, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  I'm not a politician, and I'm not going to do the things the way politicians do.  

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY:  We'll have more of the candidates and their final pitches before the very important New Hampshire primary.  You'll only see their pitches right here on "Hannity."

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  Welcome back to "Hannity."  Here is part two of our "Hannity" exclusive, the final pitches before the New Hampshire primary from the Republican presidential candidates in their own words.  

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

BUSH:  Tuesday night, voters will be able to decide who can keep them safer, stronger, and freer.  I have detailed plans to do just that and a proven record that they can count on, a record of cutting taxes, of reforming our schools, of regulating -- deregulating our economy so that we led the nation in job growth in Florida during my eight years.  We need to bring that philosophy to Washington, D.C.  

We can do this.  We can have rising income for the middle class again, but it's going to require a proven leader who can take on the bureaucracy and the status quo and the culture of Washington to fix those things so that our economy can rise up.  And finally, we need someone with a steady hand to be commander in chief that has the fact of the military so that we can destroy ISIS and the caliphate that has been formed and keep us safe.  I ask for your support Tuesday night.

FIORINA:  Voters of New Hampshire, citizens of this great nation, your power is being taken from you day after day after day ay a government that no longer serves you, by a professional political class that no longer responds to you.  

Citizens, it's time to take our country back.  That is why I'm running for president.  It's why I have laid out a blueprint of the most important things we need to do together to restore a citizen government, to force our government to work for those of us who pay for it.  

This country has always been a nation of limitless possibilities.  It needs to be so, again.  So citizens, stand with me, fight with me.  Don't sit down and be quiet.  Don't settle for what we're settling for now.  
Citizens, it's time to take our country back.  

CARSON:  I'm delighted to be in New Hampshire.  I've been here I think 14 or 15 times.  Some people say no, you have to be there 50 or 60 times.  But, you know, I think the people of New Hampshire are pretty smart from what I've seen in my conversations with them.  They have the ability to listen to the times I've been here.

Go to my website, BenCarson.com.  I think I have more policy than anybody.  And that's really how you make decisions.  I will be here as much as possible, looking very much forward to the debate.  And the reason that I hope people will vote for me is because I'm not a politician, and I'm not going to do the things the way politicians do.  I don't accept money from special interests and I don't accept money from billionaires who want to influence things.  So it's going to be different, no question about it, but that is what we need now.  

JIM GILMORE, R-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE:  I'm Jim Gilmore, Republican president for president of the United States.  As you go towards voting it's time for you to consider who actually has the credentials to actually be the president of the United States and to be the commander in chief.  

I'm the former governor of Virginia, former elected prosecutor, attorney general, and chairman of the National Commission on Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction.  I was the governor during the 9/11 attack.  And I'm the only veteran in this race, someone who actually has military experience.  I'm a person who actually cares about the rights of veterans and the reforms necessary to look after veterans in this country, and I know what to do in order to achieve that.  

And I'm and on the board of the National Rifle Association, and I stand strongly for the rights of people in the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms.  And the real credentials that I have to address the international challenge that we're facing today not only from nation states like Russia and China and Iran and North Korea but also from radical Islamism around the world, I have the experience and the program to keep America safe and do what is necessary to be the real commander in chief and a real president, not just for everybody else, but for the people of the United States.  

I'm not a candidate just throwing insults back and forth.  I'm a candidate who actually wants to serve you as president of the United States.  

(END VIDEOTAPE)

HANNITY:  The candidates in their own words.  When we come back, we need your help.  Our "Question of the Day" is next.      

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

HANNITY:  All right, time for our "Question of the Day." So which candidate do you think made the best final pitch?  Just go to Facebook.com/SeanHannity, @SeanHannity on Twitter, let us know what you think.  

Don't forget, Monday night, 10:00 eastern, we'll be live from Manchester, New Hampshire, and we'll have Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio, the top three candidates.  That is Monday night, 10:00 eastern from New Hampshire.  

But that is all the time we have left this weekend.  Have a great Super Bowl weekend.  I'm pulling for Peyton Manning.  It may be his last game.  

Thanks for being with us.  We'll see you Monday from New Hampshire.
