Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) weighs in on the feud between Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez and the ongoing probe by U.S. Attorney John Durham into the origins of the Mueller investigation.
SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS HOST: All right. Joining us now with reaction, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham is with us.
You know, Senator, why would I ever get in the midst of a good fight like that? Interesting squabble.
SEN. LINDSEY GRAHAM (R-SC): Right.
HANNITY: But you can see -- think about this, Speaker Pelosi pulled everyone together, you have something to say to me, say it to my face, not on Twitter.
HANNITY: Now, you've got to give Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez credit. She went right out and slugged right back. And I’m like, good for her, a lot of courage.
GRAHAM: So, what does this really mean? I think Republicans are more likely to take the House back because of this breakdown, because there are 31 Democrats that hold congressional seats where President Trump won their congressional district. What does it mean to these 31? If you cross AOC and the Fab Four, you are going to get a primary. And if you vote with them, you’re going to lose in the general election.
So, the biggest beneficiary of this will be the Republican Party and President Trump because the policies these four people are pushing are so out of the mainstream. But if you are one of these 31 Democrats, Sean, you've got to pick between the energy of the Fab Four and the practicality of Nancy Pelosi, you are in a no-win situation.
HANNITY: Maybe -- I’ve only been in politics 30 years on radio, 30 years we’ve been here on the FOX News. I’m like the old person here at FOX. I’ve been here at the beginning. And -- you can even see it in my hair every night.
You know, so here's what I’m thinking -- so, the modern Democratic Party, let’s see --
HANNITY: -- they want open borders, take down the walls, walls are now immoral. They weren’t when Obama was president.
HANNITY: Then they want free healthcare and you can have no other choice, Medicare-for-All. Then they want higher taxes.
Then all these 2020 candidates support the Green New Deal. Everything is free. Everything. And, by the way, no oil, gas, the lifeblood of our economy, no combustion engine, and eventually no cows and planes.
What am I think that if I’m Donald Trump, I’m a happy guy tonight?
GRAHAM: If I’m President Trump, I'd go to Florida and show up next November and get reelected.
HANNITY: Is that all it's going to take?
GRAHAM: Literally, Mr. President, if you are watching tonight, just enjoy this, be quiet, because here's what they are saying. They are going to decriminalize crossing the border illegally. And once you get here, they will give you free health care.
How many people in the world do you think will take us up on the offer, come to America, there’s no more criminal liability, and when you get here, we will give you free health care? This is insane. It's insane.
HANNITY: But then you've got this whole other side -- and somebody wanted me to ask you a question tonight, so I will ask it.
HANNITY: Which is they are obsessed with a fifth and sixth investigation.
HANNITY: The FBI concluded, House Intel concluded, bipartisan Senate committee, and the Mueller report. No conspiracy, no collusion. OK, that means there’s no underlying crime, unlike Hillary, underlying crime, real obstruction, subpoenaed emails, Bleach Bit, all that.
All right. So, here’s my question. So, you now have the ability. They don’t have solutions for America. You’re going to run against that.
HANNITY: But you have the ability to bring in people like Andrew Weissmann, who we learned today was responsible for hiring all the Clinton donors, even Clinton's attorney for Robert Mueller. Are you going to do that?
GRAHAM: I’m going to let Horowitz do his job to tell us what happened with the FISA warrant process. Then, I’m not going to get in Durham’s way, who’s looking at putting people in jail, but I am going to explain to the American people that everybody that was investigating Trump hated his guts and liked Clinton.
I’m going to help tell that story, but I’m not going to do anything until Horowitz issues his report. But we will try to lay out the facts of the case and make sure in the future, if you apply for a FISA warrant, you have to tell the court, oh, by the way, the chief informant here hates the person they are looking at. They have a political bias.
HANNITY: Oh, it's not verified.
GRAHAM: It’s not verified.
So I will do that, but here's what I want you to understand. The Democratic Party is imploding. That’s bad for America.
Their immigration policies are: no more criminal liability if you come to the America illegally, you get free health care. We’re going to abolish ICE, and even if you go to court and lose, you still can’t be deported. Now, that's insane.
HANNITY: By the way, I’ve been down to the border I think now 14 times.
GRAHAM: I’m going tomorrow.
HANNITY: You’re going to the border?
GRAHAM: Tomorrow, tomorrow.
HANNITY: Come back tomorrow, we’ll update everybody.
