Gingrich talks media's deliberate effort to destroy Trump; Pence slams the double standard for Clinton

This is a rush transcript from "Hannity," October 11, 2016. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: And welcome to "Hannity." And tonight, Donald Trump is doing what the liberal mainstream media refuses to do, and that is expose Hillary Clinton's real record to you, the American people. Instead of waiting for the so-called journalists to ever do their job in this election campaign, well, Trump vetted Hillary Clinton and her disastrous record at the second presidential debate. This is very important. Think in your mind, why didn't they ask her these questions?


DONALD TRUMP, R-PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse. Mine are words, and his was action. His was what he's done to women. There's never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that's been so abusive to women.

And Sidney Blumenthal -- he's another real winner that you have. And he's the one that got this started, along with your campaign manager, and they were on television just two weeks ago, she was, saying exactly that.

So you really owe him an apology. You're the one that sent the pictures around. Your campaign, sent the pictures around with President Obama in a certain garb.

Her papers went out to all her friends at the banks, Goldman Sachs and everybody else. And she said things -- WikiLeaks that just came out. And she lied. Now she's blaming the lie on the late, great Abraham Lincoln.  That's one that I have a...


TRUMP: OK, honest Abe. Honest Abe never lied. That's the good thing.  That's the big difference between Abraham Lincoln and you.

For you to say that there was nothing wrong with you deleting 39,000 e- mails -- again, you should be ashamed of yourself. And by the way, with Iran, who you made very powerful with the dumbest deal perhaps I've ever seen in the history of deal making, the Iran deal, with $150 billion, with the $1.7 billion in cash, which is enough cash to fill up this room.

The way they got out of Iraq, the vacuum they've left, that's why ISIS formed in the first place. They started from that little area, and now they're in 32 different nations, Hillary. Congratulations. Great job.


HANNITY: All right, so how did we get to this point where Donald Trump is actually doing the job of the mainstream media? Remember back in 2008, I said journalism is dead. Well, it still is.

Now, the media refuses to delve into Hillary Clinton's past, just like they refuse to ask back in 2008 about then senator Barack Obama and his radical ties. Remember, the media wouldn't touch stories or ask questions about Obama's relationship with unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, or about Obama's ties to his pastor of more than 20 years, the church of GD America, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright?

Now, the liberal press -- they turned a blind eye to Obama's embracing of the tactics of the radical left -- you know, left-wing activists like Saul Alinsky. And those are just a few examples.

Also tonight, while the media colludes with the Clinton campaign to try and tear down Donald Trump, well, the GOP nominee continues to campaign even harder. Watch this.


TRUMP: We're going to take on the special interests, the corrupt media -- and it is corrupt -- and the career politicians that have stolen your jobs, your wealth, and stolen our middle class. They've stolen our middle class!

And Hillary Clinton doesn't have a clue about how to bring back jobs. That I can tell you, folks. She doesn't have a clue. If she wanted to, she couldn't do it. You know, in New York state, she ran for the Senate, and you know upstate New York is a disaster for jobs. And she said, I'm going to bring back 200,000 jobs. Guess what? Right down the tubes, worse today than ever before.

I'm not proud of everything that I've done in life. I mean, who among us is. Is anybody totally proud of every single element? Some, we are. But let me tell you what I'm very proud of. I'm proud that I've always treated the blue collar worker, and I consider myself in a certain way to be a blue collar worker, that makes this country run with tremendous respect. The waiters and waitresses, the cops and firefighters, the receptionists and the custodians -- we treat them with dignity and respect. These are great people. These are great people.



HANNITY: And here now with reaction, author of the brand-new book -- it is out today -- it's called "Treason" -- former speaker of the House, FOX News contributor Newt Gingrich. Good to see you. How are you?


HANNITY: And you're going to be in New Jersey, Ridgewood, tomorrow at 7:00 o'clock.


HANNITY: Bookends (ph). Great place to be.


HANNITY: All right, there's so much ground to cover here. But we have learned not only did the media not ask the questions that Donald Trump brought up in this debate, but what do we find out? We learn that Univision's head was encouraging Clinton to hit Trump harder. NBC, John Harwood -- he actually moderated a debate. He was advising the Clinton campaign.

We know The New York Times -- we've been interviewed by The New York Times a lot. They ever give you veto power over your quotes? That she had veto power.


HANNITY: Boston Globe coordinating how to increase her presence at their newspaper. Then we have instances -- Donna Brazile was at CNN literally sharing town hall questions, although she denies it, in fairness to her.  How they actually used Benghazi to distract four dead Americans from her e- mail server scandal.

There's so much here, and so little time. What do you make of this, but more specifically, how corrupt our news media is?

GINGRICH: Well, let's stay with the news media for a second. Good friend of mine, Barry Castleman (ph), who writes a blog out in Minnesota, wrote yesterday that what we're seeing is a news media coup d'etat. He said he's always seen bias, but he's never seen the unified media try to destroy a candidate.

And what you've seen starting on Friday was a deliberate effort to destroy Trump, and at the same time to smother all of the secret -- you know, I describe it as the secret Hillary. And I think it's very important for people to understand. The next 27 days are a straight-up fight between Trump's social media and the news media's effort to destroy him.

HANNITY: That's what it is. We have now media outlets, top outlets, that are coordinating with the Clintons to take down Trump and not do their job!

GINGRICH: But look, it's time to get past baloney. I mean, you had -- you had a major figure at ABC who gave thousands of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. You have the head of CBS News's brother is the number two person in the National Security Council for Obama. I mean, the -- I tell people it's not that they're for Hillary, they are Hillary.

HANNITY: That's a powerful statement. They're an extension of the Hillary campaign.

GINGRICH: Or she's an extension of them.

HANNITY: And how did I -- how do I get all this criticism when I tell everybody I'm a conservative?

GINGRICH: Because you're conservative.


GINGRICH: You understand. This business...


HANNITY: The thing the American people need to understand is that after eight years of damage by Obama, Hillary Clinton, if she wins, will mean the end of America as we've known it, literally. Her radical judges will eliminate the 2nd Amendment. They'll eliminate religious liberty. They'll eliminate freedom of speech. Her radical appointees will shift power to Washington. She'll bring the most corrupt administration in history into the White House, and the rule of law will become irrelevant. It'll be -- as we're discovering from these WikiLeaks, it'll be the rule of friends of Bill.

GINGRICH: Here's what we learned in the -- we learned that Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC coordinated to basically hurt Bernie Sanders any way they could. We learned in the last WikiLeaks dump that Hillary Clinton wants an open hemisphere, where six million people could come into the country, and she admits that she's one person in private and another person in public.

Now we also find in the hacked emails she's praising Vladimir Putin! She was criticizing Trump on Sunday for the same thing. And she admits vetting Syrian refugees is impossible! These are key issues in the campaign!

GINGRICH: Sure. And she also (INAUDIBLE) by the way, to say she doesn't worry about terrorism in the United States. Now, of course, the whole point of my novel "Treason" is to remind people this stuff is really, really dangerous.

But I want to go to one thing you said because this is one of the challenges. There's so much stuff coming out that you get lost. Her proposal, what she described (INAUDIBLE) is really important. Her dream it's her word, "dream." What she said to Brazilian bankers in a secret speech for which they paid $225,000, having eight months earlier paid her husband $400,000 -- she says, My dream is of an open border hemisphere.

Now, that means MS-13 gangs from El Salvador, the most dangerous country in the world. It means the FARC coming in from Colombia, the largest cocaine producers in the world. It means the Mexican cartels come in.

And you read this and you think to yourself, Is this woman crazy? Does she have any idea what her words mean in the real world? And if Trump could simply slow down, focus on three or four things like that and say, Look...

HANNITY: He can't possibly talk about all of them, can he.

GINGRICH: Right. So he's got to -- he's got to pick the ones -- but if we had a referendum in the next -- the election (INAUDIBLE) started, so you can't wait until election day.

HANNITY: People are now voting.

GINGRICH: Right. So if he could have the referendum on if you really want 600 million people, including MS-14 and the FARC and the Mexican cartels, free access to America, vote for Hillary. If you really think we should control our southern border control, vote for me. My guess is that's 75/25.

HANNITY: Do you realize the revelations about how they coordinated with the media, their contacts within the White House, their contacts at the Department of Justice while she is being investigated...


HANNITY: ... how the White House is coordinating talking points on the e- mail server...


HANNITY: This is all revealed. I don't believe it's even possible for the American people to absorb the depth of corruption that now exists within our government and what a phony she is and how hypocritical on so many levels she is!

GINGRICH: She's more than a phony. She is the most dishonest...

HANNITY: Corrupt.

GINGRICH: ... most corrupt person ever to get this far in the presidential campaign. And think about what you just said a minute ago. I believe Trump's most important statement in the debate was that he would appoint an independent counsel. And my argument is not just for Hillary. We need an independent counsel at the Veterans Administration. We need an independent counsel to interrogate the current attorney general and Bill Clinton to find out what did they say for an hour...

HANNITY: On that airplane.

GINGRICH: ... in the airplane just before they interviewed Hillary?

HANNITY: I'll be fair, it was about 39 minutes.


HANNITY: Awful lot of time...

GINGRICH: They need to both be under oath.

HANNITY: Under oath. Well, the Clintons have never -- Hillary's never put under oath.

We got to take a break. By the way, congrats on the -- where did I put it.  Oh, I got my copyright right here. See? It's called "Treason," Newt Gingrich, pretty smart guy.

All right, we'll take a break. We'll come back. More with Newt Gingrich after this.

Also, up next, WikiLeaks did release thousands of these emails from Hillary Clinton's campaign manager. The revelations are beyond stunning.  We'll tell you what they are when we come back.

And later -- with exactly four weeks until election day, Indiana governor Mike Pence is here.

Also a quick programming note. The third and final presidential debate will take place next Wednesday in Vegas. Now, for the first time ever, a FOX News anchor will be moderating a general election presidential debate.  Chris Wallace, our colleague, will moderate that all-important final showdown between Trump and Clinton. And again, that's next Wednesday, October the 19th. The best place to watch right here on the FOX News Channel.



HANNITY: And welcome back to "Hannity." As we've been discussing, WikiLeaks released another 1,000 emails purportedly from the Gmail account of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. Now, over the past few days, they've released over 5,000, and the revelations from today's WikiLeaks e- mail dump -- it should make you, the American people, angry and furious.

Now, let's go through what they reveal. In one email, well, Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon is caught clearly colluding with the U.S. Justice Department during their investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server. Fallon wrote in an email to several Clinton staffers, including Podesta, quote, "DOJ folks informed me there is a status hearing in this case this morning, so we could have a window into the judge's thinking about this proposed production schedule as quickly as possible."  Wow! Pretty unbelievable.

Now, the White House, of course, is denying any wrongdoing. But that's not all. Now, as it turns out, the Clinton campaign wasn't just colluding with the Justice Department, they were also coordinating openly with members of the mainstream media.

For example, according to one of the leaked emails, CNBC's John Harwood -- well, he gave advice to the Clinton campaign, and he said, I imagine that Obama feels some sad vindication at this demonstration of his year-long point about the opposition party veering off the rails.

In another leaked email chain, top Clinton officials are clearly being pressured by the chairman of Univision to hit Donald Trump harder over immigration. And that's not all. The leaked emails also allegedly show the Clinton campaign also had a very cozy relationship with The New York Times, and particularly with its reporter Mark Leibovich (ph), who allowed the campaign to edit out certain Clinton quotes from a 2015 interview.  Isn't that nice? Clinton communications director Jennifer Palmieri even told them, quote, "Pleasure doing business with you."

Of course, this is only the tip of the iceberg, with other leaked emails showing a staffer calling Chelsea Clinton, quote, "a spoiled brat," John Podesta's obsession with aliens. And sometimes Clinton was told when to smile during her speeches. That would be like me reading this to you and say, Hi. How are you? I'll smile now. It was written into the script and much, much more.

We continue with former speaker of the House, FOX News contributor, author of the brand-new book "Treason." Newt Gingrich is with us.

It's spectacularly corrupt. And here's my worry. So they didn't vet Hillary. You know, I had an interview today, Kathy Shelton. Kathy Shelton was raped when she was 12 years old. The attorney for the guy accused of rape was Hillary Clinton.

The story she tells about how Hillary Clinton blamed the accuser -- sometimes young girls like this have fantasies about being with older men.  The evidence in the lab proved the blood was the young girl's, was Kathy Shelton's. The semen was the man accused. They gave the evidence for independent investigation and it comes back all the evidence was gone.

And then Hillary Clinton brags about on tape, Oh, I even gave him a lie detector test. He passed, of course, which forever, you know, got rid of any belief I had in lie detector tests, bragging she got off somebody she knew was guilty.

Now, they talk about Donald Trump's words, locker room talk, as if it's the worst thing in the world. She got a rapist off, a person she knew was guilty of rape, laughs and brags about it, and we have the tape! And the most people in America have never seen that.

GINGRICH: Now, look, I mean, this is again one of the challenges of having -- what you have is a establishment news media which will do almost nothing to hurt Hillary Clinton while doing everything to hurt Donald Trump.

In this case, by the way, two years after that trial, a law was passed that's called a rape shield.

HANNITY: Rape shield, yes, which would have forbidden what she did.

GINGRICH: And these are the kind of reasons it was done. There's a 12- year-old girl who's already been humiliated and put through the terrible damage of being raped, and now she is further humiliated by the female attorney...

HANNITY: Hillary.

GINGRICH: ... whose job is to destroy her at 12 years of age!

HANNITY: And she did, and it ruined this woman's life.

You know one of the most I think egregious things I saw in WikiLeaks -- nobody's has reported it -- there's actually an email that -- between Podesta and Jennifer Palmieri. It says, I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans, but I think we should use it once for the first time she says, I'm running for president, because you and everyday Americans need a champion, Podesta replied. And then Palmieri said, Truth.

They're saying she has contempt! And then there was another point where they said, you know, the email outlines an effort to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry! They have contempt for the American people! And they admit it!

GINGRICH: It's going to be very hard in the next two or three days to go through all this material. See, I think part of what it begins to reveal is how genuinely radical the Clinton team is. There's an email where they're mocking Rupert Murdoch for having become Catholic and where they're describing the Catholic church as this weird, reactionary, old-fashioned -- I mean (INAUDIBLE) realize these people are genuine radicals who have total contempt for Christianity and total contempt for organized religion.

HANNITY: It is beyond anything that I know. I look at the polls, and right now, Hillary's ahead.


HANNITY: ... today, according to the polls, she would win!

GINGRICH: Yes, but look, this is the reverse of the Trump effect in the primaries. I mean, one of, you know, Trump's great strength overcoming all of George -- of Jeb Bush's ads, and all of Cruz's efforts, was he could dominate earned media. Well, you had Friday, Saturday and Sunday morning hundreds of replays of this one tape.

And the poll that came out this morning...

HANNITY: Media Research said more coverage of that tape in 48 hours than 17 years of the Juanita Broaddrick story!

GINGRICH: Right. So think about it this way.

HANNITY: I love it when you start laughing. Go ahead.

GINGRICH: No, because there's both a tragedy for America as a country, and an enormous irony at how stupid they think we are, and frankly, some of my fellow Republicans turn out to be that stupid. OK, you get 48 hours of nonstop constant repetition.

Then you get a poll that's taken before the debate. Then the poll comes out this morning after the debate. So if you're a normal Republican, you wake up, you go, Oh, my God, look how much trouble Trump is in. Well, by Sunday morning, he had been battered with so many -- you know, and...

HANNITY: So here's my last question.


HANNITY: And then you're going to come back later in the show your wife, Callista. OK. Is he going to win this election in the next 28 days? And more importantly what are we to think of a Republican Party that was so compliant to Obama's agenda, so quick to hate Trump, and never even looked at what the impact of a Hillary presidency would be on this country?

And I'm starting with Paul Ryan because he's the worst. I don't think he's going to be speaker.

GINGRICH: He's not the worst. He's not the worst.

HANNITY: He will not last as speaker. My prediction.

GINGRICH: We'll see. We'll see. Look, those are two very different questions...

HANNITY: He's no Newt Gingrich.

GINGRICH: He probably thinks that's a compliment.



HANNITY: That's a problem. That's a problem if he thinks that.

GINGRICH: If Trump will focus all of his social media effort on driving home who Hillary Clinton really is, taking things like the open borders, 600 million people -- if he drives those things home, he's going to win the election, despite -- but it will be Trump and social media defeating...

HANNITY: The mainstream media.

GINGRICH: ... the mainstream war. (INAUDIBLE) head-up (ph) war. Second, I think that -- the only question that should be asked of every Republican is not, Are you going to support Donald Trump. Are you going to help beat Hillary Clinton, because Hillary Clinton will be the most corrupt, most dishonest person ever elected. Any Republican who's willing to help her should join the Democratic Party.

HANNITY: Agreed. Well said.

All right, we'll have more with Newt Gingrich in just a few minutes.

Coming up -- with exactly four weeks to go in this race for the White House, well, Donald Trump's running mate, Indiana governor Mike Pence, will join us.

And then later tonight...


TRUMP: Without the media, Hillary Clinton couldn't be elected dogcatcher.  I mean that. It's true.



HANNITY: Donald Trump calls out the liberal mainstream media for not vetting Hillary Clinton's past. We're going to have reaction to the blatant liberal bias that we now know about as "Hannity" continues.


HANNITY: And welcome back to "Hannity." We're in the final stretch, only 28 days, voters will head to the polls. Earlier, I spoke with Donald Trump's running mate, Indiana governor Mike Pence.


HANNITY: Governor, good to see you. How are you, sir?

GOV. MIKE PENCE, R-IND., VICE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: I'm great, Sean. Great to be back in Iowa. Had a great rally here today. And it's good to be with you.

HANNITY: You know, Governor, I was really glad to see -- I wrote a whole piece on my Web site, Hannity.com, actions speak louder than words. And I know that a lot of people didn't like what Donald Trump said and the tape that was released. I'm getting some information that maybe Republicans had a hand in that, but that's a story for a different day.

My question to you is, what do you make of so many weak Republicans that have done everything they can do, and are doing, to hurt this campaign, hurt Donald Trump, not see the dramatic, profound differences in policy and not prosecute the case against Hillary the way Donald Trump did in the debate Sunday night? What do you say to the Paul Ryans of the world?

PENCE: Well, Paul Ryan is a personal friend of mine for many years, but I just respectfully disagree with him. Donald Trump and I couldn't be more grateful for the support that we're receiving from people all across this country, including Republican leaders.

You know, I'm here in Iowa with Senator Joni Ernst, Congressman Steve King, Governor Terry Branstad, who are standing strong with Donald Trump. I got a call earlier today from Senator Roy Blunt asking us to come into Missouri for him.

So I know the media likes to focus on a handful of Republicans who have chosen a different course, but we're really been overwhelmed...


PENCE: ... to see leaders and rank and file Republicans, and many independents, and frankly, at my rallies here in Iowa today, many Democrats, who are responding to Donald Trump's message that we can make America great again.

We can rebuild our military, revive our economy the way Ronald Reagan did in the '80s, and we can have appointments to the Supreme Court of the United States that will uphold our Constitution.

So we're proud of the support we have here in Iowa, all over the country, and we're going to continue to work over the next four weeks...

HANNITY: Governor...

PENCE: ... to gain the confidence of even more Americans.

HANNITY: I want to talk about some of these hacked emails. Let's look at some of the substance in them. It came up in your debate. It came up in the debate Sunday night about Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin.

But we've got hacked emails showing Hillary praising Putin. We've got hacked emails of her saying vetting Syrian refugees is impossible, and also how the Saudis and Qatar are funding ISIS, the same Saudis that persecute women and Christians and Jews and kill gays and lesbians that she took money from. And in fact, they're funding ISIS, and she knew it!

What are we go -- and she also admits you can be one person in private, another person in public. I mean...

PENCE: Well, I think that's the whole story, Sean, is what you have with these WikiLeaks releases of these emails is they're pulling back the curtain on the fact that Hillary Clinton is different in private than she is in public.

In fact, she boasted about that, as you saw in that one excerpt from a speech, where she told some donor group that you have to have a different - - you know, different policies in public than you do in private. When she was challenged on that during her debate on Sunday night, she went into this long talk about Abraham Lincoln. But I've got to tell you, I said in Iowa today, as a member of party of Lincoln, I would prefer a dishonest Hillary to not associate herself anymore with honest Abe.

But all this, the most remarkable one to me is the fact that we learned through the release today that she may well have released classified information about the takedown of Usama bin Laden. Now, contrast that with the fact that the man who shot Usama bin Laden was essentially held to account for having classified information in his book about it, and he was required to turn over nearly $7 million in royalties back to the government.

This is about the kind of double standard that we're continuously seeing.  And I've got to tell you, people here in Iowa and all over the country have had enough of it. What they find in Donald Trump is someone who is the same person, the same person every day. He speaks honestly and forthrightly to the American people. And I think that's why you see the tremendous momentum in this campaign.

HANNITY: It is a young man by the name of Christian Saucier who's 22 years old, he took pictures of classified areas in a submarine. He has a one-year-old daughter in Hawaii. Just for taking six pictures, he's going to jail for a year, compared to what Hillary said.

PENCE: Right.

HANNITY: Also in these emails, we see Univision, NBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, all helping Hillary's campaign, and we've got collusion between the Department of Justice, and the Clinton campaign, the White House, and the Clinton campaign. I don't know if people can absorb this in 28 days. And people are even voting now. What's your reaction to all this?

PENCE: I think people are absorbing it. I'll tell you what, at our rally here in Iowa today, I talked about those very same things. The fact that it came out today and your viewers really just need to go and look at it, that the campaign manager for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign said that the folks at DOJ had given them a heads-up about information in the Justice Department's investigation of her private server. And at the same time many in the media are challenging Donald Trump and my call for a special prosecutor in this case.

But again, this is the double standard. And the sailor that's going to jail for a year, that because he mishandled classified information, he took photographs on a nuclear submarine, and yet Hillary Clinton mishandles classified information and is not held to account for that. It's that double standard the American people are weary of. I think they see through it. And I think that's why even against all odds, against the media that literally does half of Hillary Clinton's work for her every day, this campaign is gaining momentum all across America. And I've got to tell you what, I think we're going to continue to drive forward and see this movement to make America great again grow all the way through a success on Election Day.

HANNITY: All right, Governor, always good to see you. Thank you for taking the time to be with us.

PENCE: Thank you.


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


TRUMP: Without the media, Hillary Clinton couldn't be elected dogcatcher. I mean that. It's true.



HANNITY: Donald Trump calling out the corrupt leftist liberal media for colluding with the Clinton campaign. Unbelievable. We'll expose that next.

Also, newly leaked emails from WikiLeaks show Hillary Clinton allegedly knows and said that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were funding ISIS. Those are the same countries that donated millions and millions of dollars to the family foundation, and of course the Clinton Library. Should she give the money back? Dr. Sebastian Gorka weighs in coming up.


HANNITY: Welcome back to "Hannity." So Donald Trump is slamming the mainstream media for their blatant leftwing bias. Yesterday at two different campaign stops in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump, he made some of his most scathing remarks to date. Watch this.


TRUMP: I'll tell you what. The only thing she's got going is the media.  Without the media she wouldn't have a chance.


TRUMP: The hypocrites in the media don't want to talk about what Hillary Clinton has done to these victims. They don't want to talk about what their other political heroes have done to other innocent girls and women.

And this could get media, and you talk about crooked Hillary, they're worse than she is.

Without the media, Hillary Clinton couldn't be elected dogcatcher. I mean that. It's true.



HANNITY: Joining us now, the chairman of the American Conservative Union Matt Schlapp, and media reporter for The Hill, Joe Concha. I don't even know where to begin here. Univision, NBC, CNN, "New York Times," "Boston Globe," where do we begin here? And who gets criticizing the whole campaign? Me.

JOE CONCHA, "THE HILL": Only less than 100 times a day.


CONCHA: But here we have a paper trail. And as far as smoking guns, Sean, to have an email with a subject header from Donna Brazille who was with CNN at the time as a political analyst saying "Sometimes I get the questions in advance." And she sends that to the Clinton campaign communications director about a town hall coming up.

HANNITY: The next day.

CONCHA: She sends it March 12th. March 13th, a question about the death penalty that was what was concerning Brazile, comes up. The death penalty isn't exactly a common topic.


CONCHA: So here's what I want to know. We can complain about this all we want.

HANNITY: She denies it, for the record.

CONCHA: But you can't spin your way out of this.

HANNITY: I know. I agree with you.

CONCHA: There is no denying.

HANNITY: I like Donna. Donna's straightforward. She's a liberal democratic. I have no problem with her. But leaking questions?

CONCHA: A couple of months ago in June I met her in the green room in CNN.  Great lady. This isn't personal.

But here's what I want to know. Will CNN do an internal investigation, because she wasn't part of that town hall. I want to know how those questions got from whoever was producing that town hall to her, and then into the Clinton campaign.

I asked CNN, I asked them for an internal investigation. I'm getting crickets back. I got nothing left. John Harwood, CNBC colluding with the Clinton campaign, I want to know who Brian Roberts who runs CNBC -- I'm sorry, Comcast is going to do, or Mark Hoffman (ph), or -- because he writes for the "New York Times." Here's the problem. There's never any accountability. All right, we call them out on shows like this, or other media reporters do, but there's never any suspensions, firings, accountability. That has to happen here.

HANNITY: And you follow me getting beat up. I am a conservative. I'm honest about it. And I get beat up for being honest. Seriously, I get pounded every four years. This election season has been no different.  Matt?

MATT SCHLAPP, CHAIRMAN, AMERICAN CONSERVATIVE UNION: Yes, that's exactly right. I was on another network in the last 24 hours, and they did two packages before I was on on the debate in St. Louis and never even mentioned the four women who Donald Trump brought with him to the debate.  They will not cover that story because it exposes their bias and exposes their malpractice over the last 20 years. What's at the heart and center of all this is they have chosen sides, and they have chosen Hillary's side.

HANNITY: Think of it, this is Univision, NBC, CNN, "The New York Times," "The Boston Globe," and how many others we'll find out, right?

CONCHA: Was Jorge Ramos under pressure from Univision's CEO to be tougher on Donald Trump?

HANNITY: Apparently.

CONCHA: If so, will they be transparent about it? Here's the thing --

HANNITY: He claims to be a journalist.

CONCHA: He's an anchor, right? You are a host. You're hosting a talk show.

HANNITY: I am a talk host.

CONCHA: Right. Right. And you've made no bones about the fact that you support Donald Trump. You're not pretending to be otherwise. If they care about integrity, they will do something here in terms of accountability.  If they don't do anything they are therefore agreeing that collusion is a good thing.

HANNITY: Joe, I said in 2008, journalism is dead. This proves it. Last word, Matt?

SCHLAPP: And the debate commission, the onus is on them. They've got to solve these problems. They've got to tighten these holes. There's been problem after problem. I call on them to do something to make sure that there's integrity to this debate process.

HANNITY: It is probably the biggest revelation, but something I have known and talked about for years. Joe, good to see you. You are a fair journalist.

CONCHA: Thank you.

HANNITY: And Matt, you're a good conservative, so appreciate it. Honesty, finally.

Coming up, a new batch of emails released by WikiLeaks. Hillary Clinton allegedly claims Saudi Arabia and Qatar are funding ISIS. So why did her family foundation, why did the Clinton Library take all that money from those countries? Dr. Sebastian Gorka is next with reaction as we continue.


HANNITY: And welcome back to HANNITY. So more headaches for the Clinton campaign because of the WikiLeaks email dump. According to the hacked e- mails back in 2014, Hillary Clinton sent an email to John Podesta claiming that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were both giving support to ISIS and other extremist groups.

I remind you, Saudi Arabia has given up to $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. In addition to that, according to the "Washington Post," the royal Saudi family, they gave the Clinton library around $10 million. And the Clinton Foundation also took in between $1 million and $5 million from the government of Qatar. So in light of Clinton's emails, well, should the Clinton Library and the Clinton Foundation return the money that they got from those two countries at least?

Here with reaction, the author of "Defeating Jihad, The Winnable War," Dr. Sebastian Gorka. Dr. Gorka, good to see you, sir. I think the answer is obvious, but I don't expect it's going to happen nor do I expect the corrupt media to ever ask her.

DR. SEBASTIAN GORKA, AUTHOR, "DEFEATING JIHAD": Sean, don't hold your breath on that one. I absolutely agree. But we have the smoking gun now.  Every delivery of new WikiLeaks emails gives us more and more evidence that her whole campaign is built on a lie, and basically America's national interest will be on the auction block. If she becomes the commander in chief it will be the highest bidder, whether it's the Saudis, whether it's the Russians, look at the uranium deal, whether it's the disasters, amoral behavior of the Clintons with regards to Haiti and the monies that were funneled into Haiti for their buddies. This is a campaign that is not about America. It's about their corrupt organization.

HANNITY: It really is. And when you think of the level of corruption here, one of the things that I am shocked never come up is all the money she's taking from all of these countries where women can't drive, like Saudi Arabia, women are told how to dress, women are told that they can go to school or work but men in their lives. Gays and lesbians are killed for being gay and lesbian. Christians are persecuted. Jews are persecuted.  You can't build a temple or a Christian church. And she still took the money, and clearly they bought her silence because she never criticizes them. Isn't that the height of hypocrisy?

GORKA: Sean, but remember, the hypocrisy isn't just international. It's domestic as well. So these are regimes that obliterate the rights of women. She accepts tens and hundreds of millions of dollars from these kinds of actors, these kinds of countries. And then on top of that, what happens to the women who accused her husband of rape and sexual assault?  It's completely hypocritical whether it's international or domestic.  Either you're a feminist and you stand up for women's rights in Saudi Arabia and America, or you're not, Sean.

HANNITY: And by the way, you can't vet refugees, either, and she's friends with Putin. Unbelievable, isn't it?

GORKA: When she said in the latest emails that Jordan, which is right next to the warzone cannot vet refugees privately, and then denies that in public and says let's increase the refugee stream by 500 percent, when she says privately that no fly zones are impossible in Syria, but publicly makes that a platform of her national security campaign, we know, we know that it's not about America, Sean. It's about Hillary Clinton.

HANNITY: Dr. Gorka, always good to see you. Thank you, sir.

When we come back, Newt Gingrich and his wife, Callista, they're here as we continue straight ahead tonight on HANNITY.  


HANNITY: And welcome back to "Hannity." Newt and Callista Gingrich have released brand new books made for all ages. Now, Newt is a thriller called "Treason," And Callista has brought back Ellis the Elephant. And her brand new children's book is titled appropriately with the election coming up "Hail to the Chief." They join us now. You guys go on book tours together.  You're inseparable.

CALLISTA GINGRICH: We really are, Sean.

HANNITY: Is Ellis back on the campaign trail with you, on the book trail?

CALLISTA GINGRICH: Ellis the elephant is back in book number six in Ellis the elephant series. And this time Ellis learns all about our American president and how they've lead our country throughout history. And the book is called "Hail to the Chief."

HANNITY: And I pray that Ellis doesn't have to cry if Hillary is elected.  I'd hate to see a grown elephant cry.


CALLISTA GINGRICH: Ellis is very strong.


HANNITY: And you know, you're the great historian. My first interview with you was in 1990. It was long before I started here. It was in a hotel room, Holiday Inn in Decatur, Alabama. Somebody has a picture somewhere. But you use your knowledge of history and current events and you put these novels together that make them extraordinarily real and compelling. You write page turners. That's the only way to put it.

NEWT GINGRICH, AUTHOR, "TREASON": It's, I think "Treasons" really is exciting because we took lessons of the Soviet era where we now know from their archives that there were at least 500 people who were Soviet agents in the American government. We asked a question about a year ago, what if we had two or three people who became traitors? Who were loyal to ISIS or loyal to Islamic terrorism, and what kind of damage could that do to the United States? You get a contemporary thriller from me and you get a great introduction to history from Callista.

HANNITY: You guys are going to be in New Jersey, Ridgewood tomorrow, Bookends. Then you're going to be at the Nixon Library. Then you're going to be at the Reagan Library. And where can people find you guys, because you're going to be speaking about --

NEWT GINGRICH: They can go to Gingrich Productions, there's a whole list of where we're going to be.

HANNITY: What's the website?

NEWT GINGRICH: Gingrich Productions.com.

HANNITY: Do you do a lot of movies together?  


HANNITY: Is it tough to live with?


HANNITY: I'm just asking.

NEWT GINGRICH: How long have you known me? A long time.


NEWT GINGRICH: That would be a great question over a drink in private.


HANNITY: I know you guys get along. Here are the books right there, one for the kids, and then of course a thriller for the adults, and they'll be signing books, Reagan Library, Nixon Library, Bookends tomorrow night.  Guys, thanks for being with us. Good to see you both.



HANNITY: That is all the time we have left this evening. As always, thanks for being with us. Back here tomorrow night.
