Forget Chinese surveillance...it's happening here at home, too. Emmy award winning investigative reporter and former correspondent for CBS News, Sharyl Attkisson, details to Glenn the evidence she has proving government agents hacked into her computer and altered files relating to an investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal under the Obama administration. And Attkisson says her team now has an important witness to back their case -- a former government agent who admits to similar wrongdoing. Attkisson says the government has software they use to not only hack devices, but they can use Skype to listen to conversations as well. But, the Department of Justice will never want to investigate ITSELF for these crimes, so nothing will change UNTIL there's enough public pressure for real action and change.
Glenn reads some of his favorite poetic works of Edgar Allen Poe—"The Raven" and "The Tell-Tale Heart"—stories he used to read to his kids every Halloween. He also tells the love story of Edgar Allan Poe and his wife, Virginia, whom he married when she was only 13 years old.
Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.
Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.
Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
