Hollywood elite threaten to boycott Georgia over 'heartbeat' bill

This is a rush transcript from "The Ingraham Angle," April 3, 2019. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

LAURA INGRAHAM, HOST: All right. I'm Laura Ingraham. This is “The Ingraham Angle” from Washington. Did Joe Biden's on-camera explanation - you might have seen it on Twitter today - did it cut it? Media guru Frank Luntz breaks it all down, and Tammy Bruce reacts.

Plus, House Judiciary Dems move to subpoena the full unredacted Mueller report, in an obvious attempt to reclaim the narrative. The President's lawyer Rudy Giuliani is here with the Trump team's first reaction.

And Raymond Arroyo is here with examples of elites targeting America, Hollywood boycotting Georgia over a state law, and why is Chick-fil-A being banned from another airport. But first, Dems' sound and fury, signifying nothing, that's the focus of tonight's “Angle.”

Today, the Democrats engaged in a bit of theater in a desperate effort to keep the Russian collusion drama going. Jerry Nadler's Judiciary Committee along party lines voted to subpoena the entire unredacted Mueller report, and all supporting evidence from the Department of Justice.


REP. JERRY NADLER, D-N.Y.: If the department still refuses, then it should be up to a judge, not the President and not his political appointee, to decide whether or not it is appropriate for the committee to review the complete record.


INGRAHAM: Now understand this, with this move, Nadler is - the committee, but again party line vote, is actually committing a fraud. It's a fraud it's ultimately filed at the Justice Department - on the Justice Department and just the discussion of it, it's a fraud on the American people.

Any judge considering this should sanction any lawyer who signs his name on this request for a subpoena, given that the law prohibits Attorney General Barr from releasing underlying materials without a careful review for any grand jury information that would be prohibited by law to release.


REP. DOUG COLLINS, R-GA: The Attorney General's entire mandate is to enforce the law and he's expressly forbidden from providing grand jury outside of the department, in a very limited and narrow exceptions. Congress is not one of the exceptions, and the Chairman knows it.


INGRAHAM: Well, this isn't serious, come on. It's all just a dumb show. Never mind that Mueller found no criminality in his two-year probe and that there is nothing in the report to justify impeachment, which is what the Democrats obviously wanted.

Nadler and his crew are just trying to distract from their own embarrassment. And for the Democratic theory here to be correct, think about what has to be. Bill Barr, an internationally respected legal mind and former Bush Attorney General, would've had to knowingly distort Mueller's fact-finding on both collusion and obstruction.

And two, Mueller, Barr, most everyone involved in this investigation would have to be in some way in cahoots, working to protect the President at all costs.

Now tonight, we do have reports from The New York Times that there are anonymous investigators from the Mueller team who feel that Barr's summary was incomplete. Well, the report doesn't say who is upset in The New York Times or what they're really upset about, it's kind of murky. We'll wait and see if anything comes of that.

But, why would Mueller stand by without objection, if Barr had skewed in his - his lengthy findings? It's 400 page of report, right, in a four-page summary. Well, answer Mueller wouldn't do that.

Now remember, it only took him hours to correct a false report from BuzzFeed earlier this year, and also remember both Republicans and Democrats went to great pains to build Mueller up as a consummate pro, an upstanding citizen and legal mind.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He chose Robert Mueller, who has so much integrity--

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: There is literally no more respected person in American law enforcement than Bob Mueller.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Judgment, character, integrity, humility, if you have a kid and you despair that there's not a hero in America, wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed Robert Mueller is it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think the Republic just got a chance of saving itself.


INGRAHAM: Okay so now we're to believe that this sainted figure Mueller has become either muzzled or in some way manipulated? Fat chance.

Even now, Bill Barr is working to redact the Mueller report in accordance with the law in order to release it as promised probably by mid-April here.

So, why are the Democrats in such a rush? Well, what's going on here, because they are so invested in this grand tinfoil hat conspiracy that they've forgotten how to govern, and they've forgotten how to judge issues such as this, very important, dispassionately.

Hatred for Trump, it's their animating principle, and they must constantly feed their media and political beasts, beasts who have been sharpening their teeth to devour Trump since the night he won the Presidency.

And I think in this twisted world of resistance, it doesn't matter if the case against Trump evaporated, they'll just create another one. They're addicted to hating Trump. Recall how high with anticipation they've been.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We are seeing that the collusion piece of this piece- by-piece starting to be built out.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That's going to be a political hurricane, is out there at sea for him, we'll call it Hurricane Vladimir, if you will.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: The walls are closing in, he seems cornered and he's lashing out.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We are finally at a tipping point, the walls are closing in on President Trump.


INGRAHAM: They're closing in all right, but not on Trump. So, now the media and some of the other resistance types will do anything to avoid kicking their hate Trump habit, no mea culpas here.

Democrat media and co-conspirators are seeing their ratings collapse, but they reject the idea that an intervention isn't anyway necessary. They're on a path of self-destruction.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Collusion is a behavior and there could be ample proof of that kind of behavior in Mueller's full findings.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This could set up a political battle with this perception that President Trump is trying to shield certain information from the public.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It feels like the seeds of a cover-up are here.


INGRAHAM: The flames of conspiracy must be kept burning. The Get Trump Gang requires new injections to reach the resistance euphoria that once felt so exhilarating. Now just yesterday, CNN and MSNBC found a truly sensational new morsel for their audiences.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You're not just saying he cheats. You're saying he cheats, I mean he cheats on all of it.

Rick Reilly, Author, Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump: He cheats like a mafia accountant, like he cheats crazy. He tried to cheat Tiger Woods in a match and they all come up to me and told me how they do it. They have four balls in the pocket and either instructed to throw it out of any bunker or out of the woods.

Arnold Palmer would be rolling in his grave about the big orange splotch he's putting on the game that I love.


INGRAHAM: Golfgate, it is hilarious, watching them flail, but then again it really isn't, because the idea that political and media partisans should have to work this hard to create an anti-Trump narrative, even as the facts escape them, it's sort of tragic.

So, what next, Hamburglar in Chief, what the President's diet tells us about his Presidency, or Hair Force One, what's under Trump's ball caps and why it should concern you.

Tomorrow my friends, activists from dozens of far-Left groups are themselves promising massive protests nationwide, got to keep it going, got to keep it going. What the purpose of the protests? Well of course anyone with a brain knows it's about collecting email addresses for 2020, that's what it's really about.

But what they claim the protests tomorrow are going to be all about is that they want to pressure Bill Barr to immediately release the entire unredacted Mueller report and all the underlying witness interviews and so forth.

Now, this is truly moronic. If Barr or any Attorney General bowed to some organized protest and abandoned the classified information redaction process, he or she would risk serious legal jeopardy. But who cares? You know, concepts like the rule of law, they mean nothing to these people whose sole purpose in life is to resist Trump by any means necessary.

So, tomorrow, along with their release the report signs, the protest organizers should really be passing out tinfoil hats. But my question is, what happens when they run out of conspiracy theories? What then? Who knows, but until then, it'll be more sound and fury signifying nothing and that's THE ANGLE.

Joining me now is Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy and Richard Goodstein former Hillary Clinton aide and Democratic Strategist.

All right, Richard, will this routine ever get tiring for Democrats who try to convince us what they really want to do is, they want to get down to governing. I keep hearing that we have the solutions that are going to make Americans lives better, but all I see is the desperate wish lists of conspiracy theorists.

RICHARD GOODSTEIN, FORMER HILLARY CLINTON ADVISOR AND DEMOCRATIC STRATEGIST: I mean if you look at the bill they passed already through the House of Representatives, they're not a series of wish list conspiracy theory items, they're real legislation having to do with controlling excessive gun violence, little things like that, that most people in the country actually think needs to be addressed.

Look, I think what Democrats would feel much better, if Donald Trump had said, I agree the Russians did try to undermine our democracy, that's what every intelligence agency said, and here's what I'm going to do about it, to keep it from happening in 2020.

He has not done anything like that, which makes you wonder, I'm waiting for him to say Russia, if you're listening, please make Bernie Sanders my opponent, and I think--

INGRAHAM: So, are you - so Richard, I actually think you're super smart, I really do, and I'm trying to really get it in my head that you actually believe that Donald Trump with a wink and a nod is giving some subliminal messages here to Russia, you're still thinking that?

GOODSTEIN: Oh listen--

INGRAHAM: Wow, I got to say—

GOODSTEIN: Here's what you don't--

INGRAHAM: I mean, you don't like Trump and that surprises me about you.

GOODSTEIN: Mueller's mission had to do with collusion with the Russian government, not WikiLeaks, not Russian oligarchs, and we know from Paul Manafort's lawyers, not Mueller, not the mainstream media, that he met with a Russian spy in a cigar bar in Manhattan, to say here's our innermost polling data, here's how you can help us win. If that's not collusion, I don't know what is.

INGRAHAM: Okay, so you think - and Donald Trump green lit that, that was all coordinated from the Trump campaign.


INGRAHAM: And if that's the case--

GOODSTEIN: If Mueller had actually deposed Trump, maybe we would know, we don't.

INGRAHAM: Well, okay you know subpoenaing the President, they could have done it, they didn't have the guts to try to subpoena Trump. They didn't have the guts because they would have gotten killed in court, you know it. Now, Sean.

REP. SEAN DUFFY, R-WIS.: Richard, you forget that it was Barack Obama who was the President when the Russians interfered in our election, it wasn't Donald Trump. And you would think that Donald Trump would say, yes the Russians interfered, and the Democrats are going to stop this attack on him?

The bottom line is, Donald Trump was cleared by the Mueller probe, right, so they come out and said these are the findings, he was cleared, there was not (inaudible) prosecution and the Democrats still can't handle it. The fact that we're going to actually have further investigations, further analysis on the full report, when we know it's illegal to release the report, is absolutely insane.

This is never going to stop. Democrats are never going to take this report for what it is because they can't stand the fact that Donald Trump is innocent of Russia collusion.

GOODSTEIN: And here's what I don't understand, why did the President a week ago say let the Mueller report out, why did 420 members to zero say get the report out.

INGRAHAM: Trump's not a lawyer, right, you understand--

GOODSTEIN: Sean's a member, why didn't you vote for that?

INGRAHAM: Right, but you understand Trump - hold on, Trump's not a lawyer, so you do understand that Bill Barr would be in violation of legal rules that you know exist and that others like Jerry Nadler - I'm going to play this from 1998 - other Democrats used to believe in these rules.

DUFFY: Right.

INGRAHAM: But now they don't because Trump's President. Let's watch.


NADLER: As a matter of decency and protecting people's privacy rights, people who may be totally innocent third parties, what must not be released at all, it's grand jury material, it represents statements which may or may not be true by various witnesses, salacious material, all kinds of material that it would be unfair to release.


INGRAHAM: What's changed?

GOODSTEIN: Yes, I think he's saying give us on the Judiciary Committee, we have jurisdiction here for something that's impeachable. We're not even saying yet release it to the public, and maybe they can negotiate with Barr what should or should not be redacted.

INGRAHAM: So, you think that we think they're operating in good faith. This is just all about judicious and dispassionate fact-finding. Because last time I checked, we spent $30 million with the Special Counsel doing that.

GOODSTEIN: And he took more money back in from Manafort and others than he'd spent.

INGRAHAM: All right, but nothing to do with Trump. Manafort's conviction has zero view (ph) to Donald Trump.

GOODSTEIN: But I'm just saying the net to the US government, they were ahead after these prosecutions. Thanks to Robert Mueller, the United States government is richer than it would otherwise be.

INGRAHAM: You can indict a ham sandwich, you know that and I know that. You're a lawyer, I'm a lawyer, we know that.

DUFFY: And so am I, and Jerry Nadler knows that if he wants to get these reports, he wants to get the report from Mueller, you don't do it by subpoena, you actually have to go to the courts and the courts will say, yes we'll release this part of it, this part's classified, you can't have it, this part is part of the grand jury, you can't have that.

But the court is the one who says what information we get. Jerry knows that. This is, as Laura said, this is political theater. All the--

INGRAHAM: This is all - but I'm telling you, I understand why they're doing this, because it's - I mean the ratings that are - other cable networks, God bless them, and ratings have been slow for everybody. I'm not going to pile on (ph), but it's disappointing to a lot of their folks.

The Republicans were disappointed when they lost in the midterms. You know, we didn't have our best month then. They have to get the - they have to get it back, it's like it is an addiction at some point. I mean it's an addiction to hate on Trump for them.

GOODSTEIN: Do you know why the 17 people that met with Russians, of a 100 meetings, lied--

INGRAHAM: Oh my God, you still think--

GOODSTEIN: --do you know why they lied about it, do you know why they lied? Nobody does. And I think that's why somebody's trying to get the bottom of it.

INGRAHAM: Okay, so first of all, I'm not convinced that Flynn did lie, by the way. I'm not convinced he did lie, but I think he was worried about his son. I think he was worried about his family. And you know prosecutors turn screws all the time on people. People admit to all sorts of things.

They don't have the money, they don't have the resources, and they put a lot of people in jail, including a lot of people who aren't rich like Manafort or other people, a lot of people who are the minorities.

GOODSTEIN: And why did they lie about the Trump Tower meeting, say it was about in collusion (ph), come on.

DUFFY: But Richard--

INGRAHAM: Because the woman claimed it was about adoption, you know that.

DUFFY: But Richard, and Democrats for two years have been saying we have a sacred cow in Bob Mueller, he is the gold standard, let's wait for his report. The report comes out, accept it. There's no collusion.

GOODSTEIN: Let the report come out. When it does, I will.

DUFFY: If you - but you have the findings of the report, right, and basically there's no report (ph) for prosecution.

INGRAHAM: It's never going to be good enough, literally it's Mueller—

DUFFY: If you want to beat Trump, beat him in the ballot box.

GOODSTEIN: I agree with that.

DUFFY: What you are doing now is--

GOODSTEIN: But I would like to see the report first.

DUFFY: --you are guaranteeing Trump is going to get reelected, and I'm happy with it.

INGRAHAM: All right, guys, we didn't even get to the other conspiracy theory, but we'll have you back. Thank you so much.

The other big news tonight centers around Joe Biden, and the number of women accusing the former VP of inappropriate behavior is growing it seems by the hour. Now, sensing the need for a response, Uncle Joe got in front of the camera to say just who he is.


JOE BIDEN, VICE PRESIDENT: In my career, I've always tried to make a human connection. That's my responsibility, I think. I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say you can do this. It's the way I've always been. It's a way I've tried to show I care about them and I'm listening.

Social norms have began to change, they've shifted, and the boundaries of protecting personal space have been reset. And I get it, I get it. I hear what they're saying, I understand it, and I'll be much more mindful.


INGRAHAM: Well, since that video was released, The Washington Post revealed three more, I guess you can call them accusers or they feel offended all these years later, bringing the total to seven women who've objected to Biden's contact.

Joining me now, pollster media guru Frank Luntz and Tammy Bruce, President of the Independent Women's Voice, Fox News contributor.

Frank, now you study messaging for a living. Do you think this will be enough for the voters? I personally liked Joe Biden's video. I thought he looked great, I thought he had a beautiful suit, and I think that was Joe. I mean that's the way he talks and I didn't mind it frankly, but what do you think?

FRANK LUNTZ, AMERICAN POLITICAL CONSULTANT, POLLSTER, AND PUBLIC OPINION GURU: I thought you were going to kill me tonight. He was authentic, he was real. Now, I know him - I've known him for about 15 years, maybe even 20, I've taught his son, the wonderful kid and that is who he is.

Now, there's one warning here, which is a lot more women than we realize have been victims of sexual assault, genuine assault, and so they're watching this very carefully. But the Vice President clearly apologized, he acknowledged he was wrong, he admitted that he'd made mistakes. He said that times have changed and he has to change with them.

So, he took responsibility for his actions. Make no mistake, there are going to be a lot of people coming forward, I don't think this is done. But in terms as apologies go, this is as good as it gets, and Joe Biden is a physical guy. He's been that way, he's had more life challenges and suffering than virtually any politician I know. And so, I get the idea that he wants to be physical.

INGRAHAM: Well, John McCain had few more challenges than Joe Biden, but you know obviously lost his wife, lost his son.

Tammy, this is what SE Cupp said today, I thought it was an excellent point about the severity of these charges. Let's watch.


SARAH ELIZABETH CUPP, AMERICAN TELEVISION HOST: I think some risk looking like they are angry at Joe Biden for his hugs, than they have been with Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, Bill for his actual rape allegations and Hillary for demeaning and discrediting his women accusers.


INGRAHAM: Tammy, what is going on here? It seems to me that most of the women who accused, at least the ones I've seen so far, are pretty far Left folks.


INGRAHAM: I mean Joe Biden's kind of yesterday's news for them. They want more of a progressive trailblazer type, someone who's more diverse, and they want to get old Joe out of the way. Am I exaggerating?

BRUCE: Well I think that might be a little bit of a side of it, but really we are in an environment now, yes in the MeToo environment where women are feeling more comfortable being honest about what's happened here. Keep in mind too, the political machine that Hillary was ahead of that Joe Biden represents has pretty much collapsed.

So you're safer at saying what happened and what you felt about what happened than perhaps you would have been two years ago or five or ten years ago. And I have to disagree a little bit with Frank, there was no apology in this video--


BRUCE: --and he did not take responsibility. He said the social mores have changed. Now look, I don't know if he's been frozen in amber for the last 20 years. This didn't happen overnight. Most of my adult life, I've been working on the issue of sexual harassment. So while this is not about rape or a Harvey Weinstein situation, if a man in a workplace did to - at work another colleague what Lucy Flores says had happened to her, they'd be fired.

So, I mean look--

INGRAHAM: But, he's 70, was he 76.

BRUCE: He's 76. We know men, you know men who are in their 70s, who did not grow up doing this.

INGRAHAM: Well, I'm going to tell my own Joe Biden's story. I've hinted at it yesterday, I'm going to tell more of it, coming up on the show, because I had my own encounter with him on this.

BRUCE: Sure.

INGRAHAM: But, Frank, I got to say for suburban women, are they going to be choosing a candidate based on whether you know he grabs someone by the shoulders that you know I care about you, or are they going to be voting on pocketbook issues? Are they going to be voting on tonality, how someone appears, whether they appear compassionate?

If we think women are just going to vote on that, then boy we all have a lot of work to do here. But to me, again I think this is more about the Democrat Party's internal struggles than any epiphany of the MeToo movement.

LUNTZ: Well I was reading the comments to the Vice President on his Twitter feed, and I'm amazed at the linkage between Bernie Sanders and his greatest critics. I don't want to say that this is just about politics, but a lot of it is. I'm a pollster, I know how to read comments, content, and this is driven as much about politics as anything else.

But it is a lesson that the next nine months of the Democratic primary are going to be the ugliest that we have ever seen in American politics and there will be no limits to what they will say and challenge each other over.

INGRAHAM: Tammy, real quick, where's Obama, where's Michelle? I mean this man Joe Biden was doing, what, Girl Scout pinning ceremonies for eight years and they couldn't - they can't step up and say, look he's a great guy and he knows (ph) he's about. I mean where's the Obamas, where's the gratitude?

BRUCE: You know, last year I believe - I recall hearing President Obama saying last year that - talking about the field that it was time for someone new, and perhaps he's just waiting to see how this falls out. But look, the Democrats for the first time have a real choice.

INGRAHAM: All right, we got to go.

BRUCE: And I think character matters here.

INGRAHAM: All right guys, thank you so much. Up next, an exclusive Rudy Giuliani reacts to that subpoena move by the House Judiciary Committee.


INGRAHAM: Oh boy, do we have a lot to get to. I got to jump right in, joining me now exclusively is the President's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani. It's great to see you, sorry you are not in the studio, but we got some major breaking news we need to get to in just moments.


INGRAHAM: But first, your reaction to the Democrats asking Bill Barr to in essence violate the legal boundaries of reviewing this report for grand jury confidential information. The subpoena vote today was along party lines, but they're throwing down the gauntlet. What's your reaction?

GIULIANI: Well I think they're actually proving that they're a bit basically rabid partisan Democrats who should not be investigating something where you have to have some degree of objectivity and fairness, before you call people before committees.

They obviously have none. They have no regard for the Constitution or the laws. I can show you letters from them that would be a joke in terms of total disregard for the attorney-client privilege, as if it doesn't exist. And now, they want the Attorney General to violate Rule 6(e), which is a federal felony, five years in prison, and they'd like him to violate possibly laws regarding classification, possibly damage innocent reputations.

The reality is, I am absolutely confident that the Attorney General will put out a very, very complete part, if not all of it, whatever he can legally and maybe they should change the law if they want to, and so that every grand jury - all grand jury testimony is just open to everybody and there's no attorney-client privilege.

INGRAHAM: Yes, but Rudy, what they're saying, one of the things--

GIULIANI: Maybe we can do away with - you know they did away with the presumption of innocence for about two years, so their disregard for the Constitution is mind-boggling and frightening.

INGRAHAM: Yes, well they didn't want any of this released when it was ‘98 and it was a Starr Report, they didn't want that released, now it's a different deal. But they claim that, look the President initially said he wants it all out, and now they're kind of pulling back on that. So, you know, their simplistic message is, what do you have to hide?

GIULIANI: Well first of all, the President actually can't have it all out either, he can't override the rule of law, he can't say okay the grand jury secrecy doesn't matter. Only a judge can do that under very, very narrow circumstances, you know that Laura.

These people are lawless, they're a joke. I mean there are laws in this country. Republicans get the benefit of laws, not just Democrats.

INGRAHAM: Rudy, The New York Times just reported hours ago and the Left is going gaga over this that the Mueller team members think that their findings are more damaging for Trump than Barr made out in his summary four-page letter. Now, they conveniently leave out which team members are upset--

GIULIANI: Or what findings.

INGRAHAM: --which findings. I mean, what findings they have an issue with. But it seems like they've kind of - you know there are a lot of Democrat loyalists in that team, but it seems that they're - maybe they're feeling the heat or they want to put something else out there. But does this seem to be a politically motivated leak of grievances?

GIULIANI: Well first of all, it makes the point that we've been making for two years, despite all of the media reports about how holy and sanctimonious the Mueller team is. They're a bunch of sneaky unethical leakers and they are rabid Democrats who hate the President of the United States. And I can't tell you how much false information they leaked during the course of the investigation.

How many people are going to be indicted that didn't get indicted. How many blockbusters were there, starting with Papadopoulos and ending with Cohen, who turns out to be a serial liar? I mean, how could you have any confidence in this?

INGRAHAM: But I just had Richard Goodstein on, and he's a lawyer - well he used to work for Hillary, he said look why were they all not telling the full truth about these contacts with Russians, they said the meeting was about adoption?

And I looked at him, and I like Richard, I said are you still saying they are colluded? Are you still making the case?

GIULIANI: That is the full - that is the full truth, by the way. The full truth is the meeting was about the Magnitsky Act and about adoption.

INGRAHAM: Restoring adoption, since I have two Russian sons, I know all about it, believe me.

GIULIANI: That happens to be true.

INGRAHAM: They are still clinging to the collusion thing. They have not let it go. And they now think with this "New York Times" report, Rudy, that there's going to be stuff in this Mueller report, they want it released like yesterday. They're going to have big protests over the country, they claim, tomorrow. They have got to release this thing unredacted, all underlying documents. And you can see they have got to keep feeding this beast. They've got to keep feeding it, Rudy.

GIULIANI: I am confident that the report will bear out the conclusions, the conclusions, no obstruction, no Russian collusion of any kind. It will bear that out. Whether they can take some facts and twist them one way or the other, we are ready to her about that. I've been ready to rebut their report for four months, and Jay has and our team has, and we would be happy to take them on. We think we can prove beyond any doubt that there is nothing to collusion, and I don't think they are talking about collusion. And I think we can prove there's actually nothing to obstruction.

INGRAHAM: Adam Schiff said today on MSNBC, we don't have to play it, I'll just read it. He said there is plenty of evidence of collusion and corrupt comingling of work between the Trump campaign and the Russians. He said that this morning on "Morning Joe."

GIULIANI: I don't know if there is anything left of Adam Schiff's reputation or anybody would believe him, but the reality is there is no evidence of collusion because there was no collusion. And let me just give you one overview of obstruction. How could there be obstruction when Mueller completed his investigation and nobody obstructed it? Did somebody think about obstruction? That's not a crime.

INGRAHAM: They are mad. Clearly Mueller's team --

GIULIANI: The proof is -- what kind of obstruction was this? Mueller got 500 witnesses, 1.4 million documents, spent upwards of $40 million, got to his conclusion without anybody interfering with them. So God almighty, this would be the strangest obstruction case I ever saw. It's not obstruction, no obstruction.

INGRAHAM: Hey, Rudy, is Emmet Flood still going to stay at the White House? He's been doing this Mueller thing for a while.


INGRAHAM: Emmet Flood is an old friend of mine.

GIULIANI: Emmet Flood is such a good lawyer this isn't the only thing he does or can do. So I hope he stays.

INGRAHAM: I know. He keeps going. Yes, he keeps going.

GIULIANI: He is a critical part of the president's team. I've had the honor of working with him. I think he is a great lawyer and he's one of the reasons we got the result that we go.

INGRAHAM: You bet he is. By the way, I have got to play Adam Schiff. He just had this moments ago, Rudy, and he must have known you were coming on tonight. Let's watch.


REP. ADAM SCHIFF, D-CALIF., CHAIRMAN, HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE: Why didn't he release a summary produced by Bob Mueller himself instead of trying to shape it through his own words? So I don't know what to make of "The New York Times" report. It is concerning.

We're going to fight this in any way we can, in any way we need to to make sure that the American people got to see the product of Bob Mueller's work without the filter of Mr. Trump's handpicked attorney general.


INGRAHAM: Rudy, they're going to ride this all the way through 2020, you know they are, all the way through 2020 they're riding this unredacted report.

GIULIANI: They going to ride it right to making themselves even more incredible than they are already. That man should be ashamed for his disgraceful conduct in saying that he had evidence of collusion. Where's the evidence of collusion? Did you give it to Mueller? Of course you didn't, because you weren't telling the truth. You are not telling the truth now. You are such an overwhelmed partisan, you're so emotional in your hatred of Trump you can't even see the truth.

INGRAHAM: Rudy, the issue of the tax return came up again today, that the House Democrats formally requested six years of the president's personal and business tax returns. We knew this was going to come, and they want them -- OK, you have a pen? They want one a week from today. Here was the president's response today.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The chairman of the Democratic House Ways and Means Committee moments ago asked the IRS for six years of your tax returns?



TRUMP: Usually it is 10, so I guess they are giving up. No. We're under audit, despite what people said, and we are working that out.


INGRAHAM: It's ludicrous, but why does being under audit preclude him from releasing his tax returns?

GIULIANI: The real reason is that this is not the IRS. Nadler is completely distorting our government. This is not an enforcement agency. They don't get to look at my tax returns, a Congressional committee doesn't get to look at my tax return or your tax return.

INGRAHAM: It's coming from Ways and Means and going right to the IRS. They are actually not asking Trump. They are going to the IRS, which is unprecedented.

GIULIANI: Unprecedented, and the IRS is going to have to resist it because it would be totally illegal. There is no basis for it. There's no legislative basis for it. And they are not the IRS. They don't investigate tax fraud or tax irregularities or tax mistakes. If they start investigating that -- everybody got all upset when Nixon did this. This is horrendous. If Congress, if these politicians in Congress can get their hands on people's tax returns and they go after the Democrats' and they go after Republicans' tax returns, what have we become? It has to be resisted. The president has to resist this for the good of all of us, because they'll be going after -- they get a media person who is too far right, and they'll go after their tax returns.

INGRAHAM: Rudy, and apparently tomorrow they are going to be subpoenaing the greens keeper at Mar-a-Lago at the golf course because there are reports that he cheats at golf.

GIULIANI: The only thing I'm worried about is President Trump when he was younger pay all his parking tickets. I think he did. I think he did.

INGRAHAM: The golf thing is the best. The golf story is the best, though. They're shifting. Now we're on the golf game. Rudy, thank you so much. We love having you on.

GIULIANI: Thank you.

INGRAHAM: It's a special edition of "Seen and Unseen," how Hollywood media and the business elites are targeting you out there in conservative America. Raymond Arroyo will be here with all the details, next.


INGRAHAM: It is time for "Seen and Unseen" segment where we expose the big cultural stories of the day. And tonight's focus, elites targeting you in America. Hollywood's Georgia boycott, Olbermann takes on the south, and two states don't want you to eat at Chick-fil-A. Joining us now with all the details, Raymond Arroyo, Fox News contributor, "New York Times" bestselling author of the brand new book "Will Wilder, The Amulet of Power." All right, Raymond, why are the Hollywood do-gooder elites now trying to mess with the Georgians?

RAYMOND ARROYO, CONTRIBUTOR: Laura, Georgia is poised to pass what they call the heartbeat bill. This would forbid abortions at about six weeks once a fetal heartbeat is detected. Actress Alyssa Milano, who is shooting a Netflix series in Georgia, has gotten 100 actors to sign a letter threatening to boycott the state if it passes the heartbeat law. They include Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer, Mark Ruffalo, and others. Milano even held a presser at the Georgia state house with about 30 coworkers. Watch.


ALYSSA MILANO, ACTRESS: We would like to remind you that government is never bigger then when it is inside a woman's body or in her doctor's office.


ARROYO: I've never seen a government inside a woman's body, but we'll check on that.

INGRAHAM: OK, does she have a heartbeat?

ARROYO: Milano tried to deliver her ultimatum to the governor, who was not in.

INGRAHAM: What is she wearing on her head?

ARROYO: But she did run into a Republican, Representative Dominic LaRiccia. Watch.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What district of Georgia are you from?


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do you vote in Georgia?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don't vote in Georgia.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I'm just wondering what district you were from?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: There's 30 people outside that do vote in Georgia that I was going to escort in.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: But you don't vote in Georgia?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Excuse me. Don't interrupt me.


INGRAHAM: Don't interrupt me.

ARROYO: The congressman asked the right question, Laura, what district are you from? The state of Georgia gives away $300 million or so annually to the filmmakers in tax breaks.

INGRAHAM: Take them away.

ARROYO: And this is the thanks they get, bullying from the very people benefiting from their generosity. Laura, do you know the government of Georgia has never done a cost-benefit analysis for the $300 million they give away each year to Hollywood. If they do that, they might find they're not making as much as they're giving out.

INGRAHAM: What would they possibly do in Georgia without Sean Penn traipsing around? Alyssa, was is the boss? I'll tell you who the boss is. It's Trump. Get used to it.

ARROYO: In another act of southern harassment, Keith Olbermann, ESPN anchor, read an article in a local Mississippi newspaper and it told the story of a hunter who successfully tracked and killed a rare white turkey. It so enraged Olbermann that he tweeted, "It be rare and beautiful, so me should kill it. This pea-brained scumbag identifies himself as Hunter Waltman, and we should do all our best to make sure the rest of his life is a living hell, and the nitwit clown who wrote this fawning piece should be fired." This led to threats against the hunter and the paper. How does Olbermann think sliced turkey gets to his Balducci's? Does it slice itself in the wild? He had to apologize, and he is officially the worst person in the world!

ARROYO: It the south.

INGRAHAM: No, in the world, actually.

Now these elites are even trying to tell us what we can and cannot eat. Of course, they are not happy, and they always want government out of a woman's body, but they want to affect what goes in our body. Chick-fil-A has been barred from establishing restaurants at two airports, in Buffalo Niagara Airport, and San Antonio. This is because of the complaints alleged against the company's alleged stance on LGBT issues.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This is not an issue to kick Chick-fil-A out of San Antonio. This is about making public spaces available to everybody.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I think you should have the right love and marry whoever you want, but I don't think it would be enough to prevent me from going into a Chick-fil-A. I like their food.


ARROYO: Laura, it is one thing if consumers want to decide I'm not going to into that restaurant or that particular store because of the political viewpoint of the store. I guess we're going to have to post it like calorie count up on the menu. But for the government to ban a restaurant seems way over the top.

INGRAHAM: This is the beginning of something much bigger.

ARROYO: This is censorship. Federal government --

INGRAHAM: So now we are only going to have certain restaurants for conservatives, I guess in certain --

ARROYO: I guess.

INGRAHAM: Is that how they want to play? OK.

ARROYO: Bad news. Bad for America.

Before we go, I have to share this with everyone. This is a picture, I watched this taking place. This is you and Joe Biden at a party many years ago. As I watched Biden give his mea culpa today, I thought about this. Do you remember he walked up to you and put both his hands on your shoulders and he said, honest to God, Ingraham, of all the right-wingers, you're my favorite. Honest to God.

INGRAHAM: I do remember.

ARROYO: Watch this. Do you remember this. It was to build you up, Laura.


BIDEN: In my career I've always tried to make a human connection. I shake hands, I hug people, I grab men and women by the shoulders and say you can do this.


ARROYO: Honest to God, Ingraham, you're my favorite, you're my favorite host. Not Shannon Bream, not that Tucker. It's you, baby. It's all you. Honest to God, really, it's true.

INGRAHAM: I actually have a knot here. Can you work on that?

ARROYO: I can work on that. Read your teas. I support you.

INGRAHAM: I appreciate it. Why is CNN's Christiane Amanpour targeting conservatives?

ARROYO: Why are they doing that?

INGRAHAM: Last night we expose Democratic darling Pete Buttigieg.

ARROYO: Buttigieg.

INGRAHAM: Today he proved our point. Victor Davis Hanson unpacks both of those stories in moments, and he will never do what Raymond just di to me.


INGRAHAM: The political and media attempts to stifle speech, your speech, has now had a dangerous tipping point. CNN's venerated international anchor Christiane Amanpour was interviewing James Comey when she wandered aloud why Comey's FBI didn't go after Trump supporters which chanted this.


CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR, CNN ANCHOR: Of course, "Lock Her Up" was a feature of the 2016 Trump campaign. Do you in retrospect wish that people like yourself, the head of the FBI, the people in charge of law and order had shut down that language, that it was dangerous potentially, that it could have created violence, that it's kind of hate speech. Should that have been allowed?


INGRAHAM: When a journalist asks if speech should be allowed, we've truly entered a scary moment.

Joining me now, Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, author of the new book, "The Case for Trump." Victor, Amanpour was reportedly behind another disgusting effort to silence conservatives. This involves Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He was set to be the recipient of the James Foley Award for his work to free American hostages. And the "Washington Examiner" is saying now that Amanpour was behind an effort to get Pompeo's award rescinded and granted to an Obama official instead. Is this an all-out war against conservative thought or not?

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON, HOOVER INSTITUTION: Yes. It is. It was kind of ironic because when James Comey was listening, his face went blank, and he is thinking, you know what, please don't go there, Christiane. I've called the president a liar, and Brennan and Clapper called him a traitor. So let's not go in that territory.

INGRAHAM: Let's not criminalize --

HANSON: Christiane Amanpour, remember, when Trump was elected, she gave this little speech that you could not be disinterested anymore in the way that Jim Rutenberg had done at the "New York Times." In other words, journalists had to be activists because Trump was so unusually toxic.

And it's kind of a flip from when I grew up and your generation later, it was true, too, that we grew up with the ACLU was the guardians of free speech, left wing, the Warren Court. And it's not that way anymore. The left now, if you go to any campus in the United States, they are dismantling the First and Fifth Amendments. And it's the left, it's not conservatives that are censoring searches on Facebook or Twitter or working the Google searches. And it's the left that went after the Associated Press reporters and FOX's James Rosen and weaponized the IRS.

And I really do believe in 2020 Donald Trump will not have his CIA director or his FBI director go to a FISA court or finagle with foreign intelligence to put a mole or to surveil Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders campaign. So it's the left now that feels that their ends are so noble that it justifies any means necessary.

INGRAHAM: We've said this before, Victor --

HANSON: As you've said before about religion, the religious issue is similar, isn't it, when we hear that Donald Trump, I think the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, he said that Donald Trump, he didn't want to --

INGRAHAM: Yes, I want to read this. Let me set this up. Let me set this up. He said "I would say it is hard to look at this president's actions and believe that they are the actions of somebody who believes in God. I just don't understand how you could be as worshipful of your own self as he is and be prepared to humble yourself before God."

You have to admit, coming from a liberal mayor of South Bend, Indiana, college town, went to all the best schools, obviously academically very bright. For him, is that now the judge of whether you are a good Christian? If you focus too much on yourself, well, I guess all of Hollywood is out the window and every politician and anyone who looks in the mirror more than twice a day. It's crazy.

HANSON: Yes. It is crazy. Remember, it's the same pattern as the free speech act. We were told that the evangelicals on the right would use God in a politicalized manner. Now it is the left. And it's not just the mayor of South Bend. Remember that during George H.W. Bush's funeral, we zoomed in on Trump during the prayer service and we were saying, all the other presidents were reading the Apostles' Creed and he didn't. He doesn't believe in God. And here in California, I remember that Jerry Brown, I don't know if you recall, he said that Trump was against global warming, the idea of global warming, and therefore he doesn't fear God or the wrath of God, almost of if heaven is powered by wind machines and solar panels.

INGRAHAM: So they've become the new puritans. So they are the new puritans, Victor.

HANSON: The left has appropriated God now. And again, it's the same pattern, that any means necessary are justified by their noble and superior --

INGRAHAM: Hold on, hold on, hold on. I want everybody to know that this guy, the mayor of South Bend, is being upheld as the calm, sober, soft spoken. He's liberal but he's not transgressive, OK, whatever that means. So this is what he said about Mike Pence just a few years ago.


PETE BUTTIGIEG, D-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: How could he allow himself to become the cheerleader of the porn star presidency? Is it that he stopped believing in scripture when he started believing in Donald Trump? I don't know. I don't know.


INGRAHAM: So he is kind of the new moral majority, I guess, of the left.

HANSON: Yes. And when he said this about Trump not really believing in God, he did the classical trope that we all learned in Latin and Greek studies called preteriter (ph). I don't want to mention, I don't want to impugn, I don't want to suggest that anybody's religion is questionable, however, and then you go and trash Trump and that's OK. So he has this sort of facade that he is calm and rational and he's liberal and he's tolerant, and yet that means he can say the most intolerant and personal vitriol of anybody. I don't think anybody is going to fall for it.

INGRAHAM: We conservatives believe in more freedom, more freedom. They believe in less speech and less freedom. That's a fact. Victor Davis Hanson, thanks so much.

HANSON: These days they do, absolutely.

INGRAHAM: We'll be right back to close this out, stay there.
