let us know what you think about tonight's show. i'm sandra smith in for megyn kelly tonight and this is "the kelly file". welcome to "hannity." president obama is imposing sanctions on russia over allegations of election hacking. i'm kim her by guilfoyle in for sean tonight. kellyanne conway and john bolton will be here tonight with reaction. but first, earlier today, the obama administration punishing russians with sanctions, expelled rush hand diplomats from the u.s. and closing russian compounds. russia is saying the move was done to hurt the incoming administration. and president trump is reacting by saying, quote, it's time for
our country to move on to wigbir and better things. nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its people ie will meet with intelligence next week. joining us now, kelly anne konway. thank you for joining us on the show tonight. always a pleasure to have you. lots of news on the international front and certainly knees develop certain ly these developments with russia are concerning. have you spoken to president-elect trump about this? >> i have. i've been with him most of the day in meetings including on this topic. >> what are his thoughts? >> you see them reflected in his official statement. he does believe it's time to move on and look forward to the next administration. also in the interest of the country he's agreed to receive intelligence briefing next week probably in new york by a number of intelligence official to learn more about the current
situation. and i think those who are trying to bait him into. a bigger response, i would say two things to them, you can't have it both ways. you can't just say one president at a time and we have one right now for the next 20 day named president brauarack obama. i read the supposition that one reason that the sanctions are taking place is to box in president-elect trump forcing him to take a position or otherwise once he takes office. i mope this isn't motivated by politics even a little bit. but i would note this is great political fanfare and largely imspi symb symbolic. but will they have impact? it's unprecedented for us to expel that many operatives in
such a short period of time. the operatives, they don't travel here, don't keep their assets here. one wonders what the teeth of the sanctions are. i see that russia as retaliated against our alleged retaliation. i think there ear calling on closing the angle american school in moscow. they put out a scathing statement that this is lame ducks and political corpses quote unquote in the obama administration. it's concerning and it's all new. but the president-elect was brief and very firm and very consistent in his statement tonight. >> what do you expect or foresee for president-elect donald trump in terms of his relations with russia? what do you think will be one of the first steps he will take? >> that's a larger question apart from these sanctions and certainly apart from the current issue at hand. we have complicated relations
with russia. we have for decades. but the president-elect has made clear he's willing to work with countries who want to work on big solutions. if there are countries who want to come with the united states and ir rad kate isis, then we would entertain that assistance depending on the terms. it's remarkable to me that we're talking about sanctions against russia just saying aft ining i sanctions against israel, that secretary kerry lost a tremendous amount of credibility in upending u.s. policy with respect to israel. you will see president trump having much stronger relationship with israel. we will -- you can't put daylight between the u.s. and israel diplomatically, militarily, technically when
you're talking about president trump's administration. so i think within the last couple of days you see this flurry of activity by a tough president obama as he exits the office and i guess he's burnishing the last couple of moments, semi colons bother of his legacy. but at the same time the new president will have the opportunity to reexamine our relationship geopolitically across the globe, making decisions for the americans. >> it seems that benjamin netanyahu already has confidence in developing a very good relationship with president-elect donald trump. he's very much looking forward to january 20th and trying to really restore and rebuild relations with israel which is a very important democracy and ally for us in that region. >> it's our greatest friend, our best friend in that region. stabilization in the middle east is a goal for president-elect
trump overall. but we want our friends in israel to know that help is on the way. and plukt trump tweresident-ele tweeted that out yesterday. we heard from people, thank you for saying that, thank you for saying hang on israel. january 20th is fast approaching or will be here soon, something to that effect. it's important that the world know that we will have an incredibly strong relationship when the u.s. and israel and mr. netanyahu snknows that. and we just want the world to know that. i naugthought this vote other t weekend was remarkable, a break with u.s. policy and so weak. >> certainly is not helping in terms of our relations and really a departure of u.s. policy as it relates to israel. let's talk about the
relationship between president-elect trump and president barack obama. did they actually speak yesterday late in the evening and what was the nature of the call? >> they spoke yesterday afternoon. some of us on the senior staff were there when the call was being received. so i know it was in the afternoon. and then president-elect trump went out and told the media they had a productive conversation that was broadly reaching on a number of issues. they spoke at length. they speak regularly which is held i t healthy for our administration. president-elect trump said our staffs are working well together. that is true. you have the current chief of staff, the incoming chief of staff in touch, other staff members are reached out to me personally and often. we feel that our cabinet nominees, others who are
involved in senior levels in the incoming government have had good contact, very positive contact with and good relations so far with the outgoing obama administration officials and we hope that continues. that is really the only way to make this work for the american people in the next couple f weeks. january 20 will be here quickly and it's important to all of us that you see the peaceful transition of power from administration to administration. >> that's good news also that president-elect feels he is personally supported and has an open relationship with the current president. what would you like to see happen over the course of the next three week to fell were well-prepared and a good position for the start on january 20th? >> kimberly, one thing is something just to modify our previous conversation, something that the president-elect tweeted yesterday too, he sees some road blocks sometimes from president obama. and we do wonder about the rush to do all of these things in the
next couple of weeks by the obama administration, how that may upend long standing u.s. policy as it seems to be or how it may be and as the "the new york times" put it, quote, trying to box in the president-elect. we hope that's not true. evidence has within to the contrary. that would be good. we would like to know as much as we can to prepare for the first ten days, 100 days. we're very excited about the president's agenda. the president-elect's agenda. he talked about his 100-day plan on the campaign trail. you know this guy is very consistent. that hasn't changed. i think what i want people to know is that the president-elect is not just -- not only is he not a politician but he's a successful businessman. what that means as president is the way he's run as a chief executive, successful, brilliant, change making, things move very quickly when you employ tens of thousands of people, when you generate billions of dollars in revenue,
when you are accountable for results and you want to deliver on a regular basis, not just when congress is ready, not just when you've studied or when the commission is done with its work. he wants to do things very quickly and i believe he will. he's very focused, and has been working around the clock here at mar-a-lago. i think he and vice president-elect pence have spoken with 80 leaders on the telephone in preparation. we want to be as ready as possible to get to work and not just say we need a couple of month to find our way around the west wing. this is a man who has always been able to deliver and produce very quickly and deliver and produce the way he has promised to and the way it makes an impact on people's lives. that's what i want to do, making an impact on people's lives. >> you're doing that, a personal sacrifice. the best to you and your husband
and children on your move to d.c. >> thank you. come and see us. >> i will. coming up, more reaction too president obama punishing russia over hacking allegations. john bolton is here next to weigh in. plus -- >> i'm very very strong on israel. i think israel has been treated unfairly by a lot of people. >> president-elect donald trump is standing firm with ids real after the latest with the obama administration. anthony scaramucci will be here, that and much more straight ahead on "hannity."
a powerful nor'easter dumping snow on parts of new england along the i-95 corridor. a storm warning remains in effect into friday morning. and by the time it stops was as much as 8 inches of snow will have fallen. coastal areas of maine were seeing heavy snow. now changing freezing rainmaking driving even more hazardous. elsewhere in the world, iraqi forces launch a new offensive against isis fights for control of mosul. they're pushing into several neighborhoods. explosions are smaki ishaking t and machine gun fire is echoing through the city. i'm patricia stark and now back the "hannity." for all of your headlines, log on to foxnews.com. welcome back to "hannity." newly imposed u.s. sanctions against russia are elevating
tensions between washington and mosc moscow. what could this mean for the incoming trump administration. joining me now, john bolton. thank you for joining us on the program. obviously disturbing news and developments on the tail end of an administration. what do you think this means for president-elect donald trump? >> i don't think it boyfriends h -- binds him at all. i think the harder issue is determining whether we really understand the full extent of what the russian twbs chinese, the iranians and the koreans and others have been doing in the cyber world for eight years and beyond that that we have not responded to. i think what president obama announced today is incoherent. and if the reports about what russia did are in fact correct utterly inadequate. i think we need a much stronger response because we want to get into a position where russia and
everybody else who has been doing this kind of interference in the united states knows that we can cause a lot more pain to them than they can cause to us and we create structures of deterrence to make them stop it. >> if president obama had knowledge that there was interferen interference, why now is he doing this at the stage of the game with very impotent sanctions, in my opinion, levied against russia? to what end? >> i don't think we can really say. but i think once january 20th comes, obviously trump administration will be able to talk to people in the intelligence community and find out why it was if they were so sure back in september and october this was going on, they didn't announce it then. some speculated it's because obama thought that hillary clinton would win the election any way, so why risk messing that up. now they're upset about it. i can't say. but i tell you, it's not just russia, it's not just the hack
of the dnc or john podesta's e-mail, it's eight years going back of persistent efforts by foreign governments and other to get into our government and private sector computer systems. look at the chinese hack of opm personnel records, millions of records of americans working for the federal government basically stolen by beijing. what did we do about that? i don't know. apparently nothing. >> nothing. you're right. this is a far greater, sweeping problem that needs to be addr s address addressed. just the dismal lack of cybersecurity in this country is woefully inadequate and you see countries like china, like russia, like the north koreans making a mockery of the u.s. security systems and it has an impact on u.s. national security. >> absolutely. i think we've got a nis l gap here. i have no doubt that america is
capable of stronger action offensively and defensively. but i don't think that the obama administration has put a priority on it until today. when the president announces weak and ineffect tich sanctions saying other steps will be taken, we can't talk about it, he has no credibility in that regard. i understand why you don't make public actions in cyberspace or elsewhere until they've happened. but i do think in order to, not simply impose pain on the russians but to shame them publicly as well, to let the whole world know, including other potential hackers like beijing, that if you act against the united states we will impose such costs that you will not want to do it again. >> and i imagine that will be your advice to president-elect donald trump and he will have a markedly different approach as it relates to the actions against the united states. ambassad ambassador, always a pleasure. while tensions are
escalating between the u.s. and moscow, the relationship with israel continues to deteriorate. relations between obama, netanyahu camp hit rock bottom. meanwhile the incoming senator minority leader chuck schumer released a statement, quote, while he may not have intended it i fear secretary kerry in his speech and action has 'em emboldened extremists on both sides. >> i think israel has been treated unfairly by a lot of people. you look at the relations in the u.n., they're up for 20 reprimands and other nations a that are horrible places, that treat people horribly haven't
even been reprimanded. there's something going on and it's unfair to israel. joining me now is israel's ambassador to the u.n. thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> absolutely. this is so important what's going on now and the relationship between the united states and israel is crucial. it is integral to world stability. and israel has enough countries after them, surrounded by people that would like to see the end, the demise of israel. yet the u.s. issuing a very crippling inappropriate blow to israel. your thoughts. >> we have a strong relationship with the u.s. we are pushing that. we have the same value, share the same principle. but what happen last friday at the security council was shameful. one-sided resolution. a ridiculous resolution. to say that the you consist not
be in jerusalem in the jewish corner, in the western world, the holy site, that's ridiculous. we're disappointed that the administration decided in the last minute to allow such a shameful resolution to pass in the security council but we're hopeful. we listen to president-elect trump and we hope to have some changes at the u.n. we need to reform the u.n. we need to make sure that the billions of dollars that the u.s. has given to the u.n. is going do the right places and not to promote anti-semitism against israel. >> is this something that your country was given any kind of advanced warning to in the forms of some kind of courtesy to replay to israel that the u.s. would take this position? >> we knew that the palestinians would try to pass the resolution. we were aware of that. but we were not expecting that the u.s. will join it and support it and will encourage it. in 2011 there was a similar
resolution that the u.s. vet towed. ambassador rice vetoed the same resolution. why now? what happened now that the u.s. decided to joining our enemies and to allow for the shameful resolution to pass. and when you read the resolution, now we, the people of the u.s. will not support such a resolution. president obama himself spoke at the u.n. and he said if you want to promote peace in the middle east, don't come to the u.n. at the security council. urge both parties to sit together and negotiate. that's what we need to do, to sit down and negotiate. but passing a resolution to give the palestinians everything is not encouraging peace. >> who has also encouraged acts of terrorism and paid people to commit acts of terrorism against israel. how is it that there are some allegations made that the united
states was complicit in this putting forward the resolution during this time. do you believe that to be the case this evening? >> in the security council of the u.n., every resolution connected ed ted to ids rea ees the pen holder. that was the case on friday. we expected more from our closest friend. we expected them to stop the resolution. it's legitimate to disagree about the issues, to criticize israel but it's no legitimate to choose the venue of the u.n. when it is so biassed and to allow the resolution to pass. >> president-elect donald trump saying that they're a friend, a strong ally with the united states and will be treated as such, saying hold on until january 20th. >> we're looking forward with the new ambassador to the u. until a-- u.n.
we will prevail coming up next on "hannity." >> we're going to create a prosperous country, having great jobs again, real jobs. and it's going to be something special. >> president-elect trump promised voters he'd get americans back to work. anthony scaramucci will weigh in next. and later. >> -- >> this morning i saw president obama talking about gitmo, guantanamo bay, which by the way we are keeping open. >> that was president-elect trump back in february telling voters he'll keep guantanamo bay open. now president obama is reportedly racing to release detainees before he leaves office. dr. sebastian gorka will join us with reaction. that and much more ahead on "hannity." my heart beats
if you have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis or crohn's, and your symptoms have left you with the same view, it may be time for a different perspective. if other treatments haven't worked well enough, ask your doctor about entyvio, the only biologic developed and approved just for uc and crohn's. entyvio works by focusing right in the gi-tract to help control damaging inflammation and is clinically proven to begin helping many patients achieve both symptom relief as well as remission. infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. entyvio may increase risk of infection, which can be serious. while not reported with entyvio, pml, a rare, serious brain infection caused by a virus may be possible. tell your doctor if you have an infection, experience frequent infections, or have flu-like symptoms, or sores. liver problems can occur with entyvio. if your uc or crohn's medication isn't working for you, ask your gastroenterologist about entyvio. entyvio. relief and remission within reach.
taxes on american business and we are going to massively cut taxes for the middle class who i call, who i call the forgotten people. i will never ever let you down. we will become a rich nation once again. >> and that was president-elect donald trump vowing to bring back jobs to america. and it looks like the president-elect is already making good on that promise. watch this. >> because of what's happening and the spirit and the hope, i was just called by the head people at sprint and they're going to be bringing 5,000 jobs back to the united states and also oneweb, a new company is going to be hiring 3,000 people. that's very exciting. we have a combination of sprint for 5,000 jobs and then coming from all over the world and coming back into the united states, which is a nice change. and also oneweb 3,000 jobs, it's a new company. >> and joining me now, the
author of "hopping over the rabbit hole" anthony scaramucci, a man with a lot of titles. >> thanks for having me back. >> i know. this is something that people are excited about in this country because they feel they have been left behind. this was an integral part of his campaign in his movement across the country. he spoke to people saying, forgotten men and women you will not be left behind anymore. we're going to put america first. we're going the hire american. we're going to bring back jobs here and this has been part of the framework for his plan for the country. >> he's a great marketer and so many great skills. standing there at mar-a-lago and allowancing the 5,000 and then the 3,000, he's sending a symbolic message to everybody -- teddy rooz velt once said at the presidency there's a bully pulpit there.
nobody is going to use it better than donald j. trump. he's going to get out there and express his hopes and dreams to the american people. and he's sending a message to businessing a ines all over the that the u.s. is open for business, lower taxes, and the message to the working class families is that we're going the set you up where you can be aspirational. sean talks a lot about 8 million people dropping below the poverty. he wants to lift those people above the poverty line but also get them thinking like we were when we grow up, we've got to do our hardest to work hard, go to school and then we can become successful. that's the message of president-elect donald j. trump. >> you're a big part of that in terms of a member of the transition team, executive member of it. people really feel in this
country they can't even dream, have these aspirations to open a company or do something and so much of that contribute to the working force. >> we've been stuck because of the low growth, a declining wage cycle over the last ten years, panels are down 9.4% for middle class and working class. his focus is being real wages back to the united states. we've talked in the obama administration about $15 an hour wages. that's not going to be the president trump plan. the president trump plan is high living standards and wages. let's start the consumes cycle again to get people back to work and get the growth that we need. >> hire americans, buy american goods, put america first. these sound like simple statements but they have profound impacts in the market >> look at the consumer confidence numbers, the best they've been in -- >> yeah, 15 years. >> i think it was 15 years.
and even the pundits that don't like him have to admit that he's inspiring people, he's changing the game. we went from jimmy carter to ronald reagan where we were carrying flags and the torch of america and we're returning back to the american dream. >> and you bring up a good point. during that time when reagan was president, you saw people, households had more confidence, consumer purchasing was up more, every family to have two tv two vcrs, that's really something that can move the numbers forward. we've seen the markets by the fact that president-elect trium is coming in, in wall street and the index. >> i'm hoping we get a new hat that says making america greater and we drop the whole make america great again because we're already great. >> always a pleasure to have
you. >> happy new year. >> you as well. coming up next right here on "hannity" >> this morning i watched president obama talking about git gitmo, right, guantanamo bay -- which may bithe way we are keeping open. >> president-elect trump promised voters he'll keep gitmo open but president obama is now reportedly rushing to free detainees before he leaves office. dr. sebastian gorka is here with reaction. and later, a legendary columnist is retiring after a decade long career writing about politics. we'll can him about president-elect donald trump and much more. stay with us as "hannity" continues. ♪ think of your fellow man.

we have incompetent leadership. we have incompetent people. this morning i saw president obama talking about gitmo, guantanamo bay, which by the way we are keeping open. we're going to load it up with some bad dudes. believe me. we're going to load it up. >> that was president-elect donald trump promising to keep open the military prison at guantanamo bay, cuba. but according to reports president obama is rushing to transfer detainees from the prison before he leaves office on january 20 president and according to the latest report from the director on national intelligence, an alarming 30% of transferred gitmo detainees are confirmed or suspected of reengaging with terrorism. dr. gorka, this is very serious, could have tremendous consequences if these individuals are allowed to
reengage in terrorists activities. >> absolutely, kimberly. let's be very clear here. these aren't bank robbers. and just before the facility is called the joint detention facility, it's not a prison. it's in fact an intelligence facility. these are individuals picked up in war zones, people who cannot be prosecuted and should not be prosecuted in a court of law but have very high intelligence value or simply should be kept away from other people because they are a threat to national security. the figure you quote is an official figure. if you listen to the amazing individuals like bill roger, the recidivism rate is upwards of 40%. these are people who as soon as we release them go back to the lifestyle of jihadism. as a result i'm very very glad
to hea what president-elect trump said, that we're keeping the facility and we're going to fill it with bad people. >> well that seems to be the suggestion from intelligence individuals that know the difference about smart national security, keeping america safe. and these are individuals that have information that we need to get and we don't want them to go back out, as you said. an alarming recidivism rate that they engage in. they want to be let out to go and reoffend. given the fact that president obama is aware of the numbers that we think might be lower than actuality, why would he do this? is it just to honor the legacy and please his constituents because it was one of his campaign promises? >> i cannot explain it. it is simply spite. it's ideologic it's ideology. reality is optional. these are bad people. they are guilty of crimes.
they shouldn't prosecuted in a regular court of law because they are picked up on a battlefield. they're not prisoners of war because they are in breach of the geneva and hague conventions. as a result by international law, not by some crazy bush era judgment, we can keep them in custody for as long as we are fighting dehad dijihadis. that's the law. why we want to release them? the lord only knows why obama wants to release them. i think he's desperate once again to fulfill the promises -- do you remember the photo opportunity where he was signing the degree to close gitmo the day after the inauguration. what does it look like if eight years later he can't do it. so he's embarrassed, maybe as simple as that. >> it's his own ego and worried about being embarrassed and putting that ahead of american
national security. and what troubles me is who is making these decisions about who should be released and who should be transferred and where they're ultimately put? >> probably people like ben rhodes within an individual whose qualifications is a master's degree in fictional writing. you can't make this stuff up. if you read in in a tom clancy novel you would say he lost it. this is an incredibly dangerous cocktail of arrogance mixed with ignoran ignorance. that's the explanation for the last eight year of foreign and national policy. >> you heard ben rhodes making comments. and it's unbelievable because somebody who is basically writing harry potter type of stuff is deciding national security. that ought to alarm everyone. >> what about the truth, what about national security. it's about the narrative.
it's about spin. the white house for the last eight years has prioritized spin and false narrative over the truth. it's time america gets back to protecting americans and to the principles of the founding. >> you're absolutely right. i think about the many terrorists that were released w, dangerous terrorists -- these aren't the run-of-the-mill stealing bubble gum from the walgreen's. these are people who want to create acts of terrorism. and it's unfortunately to me when i think about it as we sit here tonight, they're out there, so many of them that the administration has released, planning and plotting and recruiting on our u.s. dime. >> just think about the fact of the matter. you're so right. in the last two and a half years
since al baghdadi declared the caliphate, a city we used to own, since he declared the caliphate we've killed or arrested 125 isis terrorists in the united states alone. not 25 or, not 30. 125. the threat is real. the threat is here from christmas parties in san bernardino to marathons in boston to marine corps fun runs in new jersey. this is what the reality what a legalist world creates. p it's time for america to find its place again and i truly expect that all of this is going to change on the afternoon of january 20th, 2017. >> dr. sebastian gorka, thank you so much. and coming up, legendary conservative columnist thomas sole is retiring and he joins us
