Hannity guest host Jonathan Gilliam: Michael Cohen's crimes "have nothing to do with President Trump"

JONATHAN GILLIAM (GUEST HOST): We live in a country where we’re not supposed to fear the government coming after us because they don’t share our beliefs, for instance. We live in a country where the Founding Fathers took great steps to ensure that whatever religion you want to feel, whatever opinion you want to have about a politician, or the police, or anybody else for that matter, it’s protected. It’s your opinion, you can have it. And one of the ways that those protections carry out throughout the Constitution is that we are protected from being held as guilty before we are proven innocent.

And when we look at the case of Eddie Gallagher, which again we’re going to talk about later; and we look at the case of President Trump with this Russia, fake Russia collusion; when we look at Michael Cohen marching into the courthouse today and claiming blind loyalty to Trump when he’s being charged with crimes that have nothing to do with President Trump — and he’s saying that blind loyalty, that is a smear tactic. That is a campaign, a propaganda campaign that the prosecution — in that case it’s Mueller — that they use to press upon juries and people who’re being charged and manipulated for various reasons. Now I don’t know what the reasons are in Eddie Gallagher’s case, it’s very clear when you look at Michael Cohen that they’re going after him to put pressure on Trump.

RUSH LIMBAUGH (HOST): This is the drive-bys ratcheting up the hysteria: Trump’s payments to women could be the greatest crime in American history, he stole the presidency, that’s what all this means, that’s how they’re reacting here to the news that there were a couple of payments that were made to women with non-disclosure agreements. I’m telling you once again, there’s nothing illegal about these, and I’m just, one of these things I’m going to stress until everybody knows it and gets tired of me saying it: If what Trump did here is illegal then there are 276 or 246 members of Congress who have done the same thing. And they’re not using their own money to pay women off, they’re using taxpayer money.

Lou Dobbs cheers on a government shutdown and claims "the principal beneficiaries" of government programs are undocumented immigrants

LOU DOBBS (HOST): Shutting down the government, and who’s going to notice? The principal beneficiaries seem to be the estimated 22 to 30 million illegal immigrant in the country. I mean who else are the real beneficiaries of leaving this government open? It’s not the American working man and woman, it is not the entrepreneur who depends on government, I mean just who the heck is the beneficiary besides of course elected officials including yourself, Congressman, who benefit from that paycheck and a nice comfortable office in the nation’s capital. The American people in poll after poll after poll are saying they’ve had a bellyful of what’s passing for government in this country.

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): I don’t see that.

WILLIAMS: “Oh well you know, people with disease are coming through, terrorists are coming through,” all of it proven wrong and yet he’s sitting there spouting it.

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): Was it proven wrong?

WATTERS: The Department of Homeland Security has verified those things so Juan, I don’t know what you’re talking about.

WILLIAMS: No they did not. State Department and Homeland Security say no evidence that any terrorists have come across that southern border and the drugs that you often cite —

WATTERS: There are terrorist related people that have crossed the southern border.

WILLIAMS: Never, zero.

WATTERS: And Tijuana has said there are diseases down there with the caravan.

WILLIAMS: That’s ridiculous. You are just spread —

WATTERS: I’m not demonizing them Juan, that’s just a fact.

WILLIAMS: I’ll tell you what, we’re not spreading disease we’re spreading falsehoods.

Most drugs come through legal ports of entry.

WATTERS: Well you would know Juan, because you should like you’re high right now.
