Millions of dollars worth of assets companies like -- girls were leaving.
A million dollars toward a brighter more prosperous through the federal agency is now retaliating.
By in my area.
Who blew the whistle on the mission elapsed after the guns and -- -- -- next.
I'm right I'm smarter about and that doesn't ring a couple hundred aren't your partner thousands of weapons.
Cool really authorize this program that the very highest levels of the Department of Justice they knew exactly what was happening attorney general Eric Holder.
We sent briefings -- probably heard about fan features for the first time over the last -- Documents show that at least ten months before that so.
It's about the cover off about deception allowing people who are not citizens of the United States to -- -- want to literally.
Drag us all the way back to Jim Crow -- -- ballots being offered out in the the name of the Dennis.

Tremendous time -- it feels like a lot of these laws are solutions in search of a problem and they were ready to present -- -- ballot.
For that kind of thing be of interest of the FBI.
I don't have a special edition of Hannity now that was a -- from a movie by victory film.
Call the district of corruption -- the film details the highest level of cronyism in Washington dating back to the Clinton administration.
Let me show you clips throughout the hour tonight and the current administration was supposed to be -- most transparent in history.
But it's turned out to be anything but and now we have another four years to look forward to so -- we anticipate cronyism and corruption until 26 -- -- Joining me now is the writer director of the film Steve -- and the author of the corruption chronicles.
And president of judicial watch in the film's executive producer Tom -- OK explain what we just saw that clip possesses disclosed deep into what this movie's about.
I want to make a film I think Washington's -- and current city and I wanted it's been detached from the American people I want to do a film that showed.
How that's happened how this corruption how how's -- how this happened the last twenty years in particular house culminated.
And the Obama administration.
Every administration runs to be the most transparent administration -- -- -- full of it and each one gets but it shows -- to Clinton and bush and now Obama -- each time they run because they know the American people want transparency the American people want openness and -- people.
When a government it's not their lives.
But each one increasingly gets more power to themselves and so that's why using.
The up judicial watch kind of -- David vs Goliath that small organization.
That is tough as nails that stick it always confronting the administration and then taking the best of the young talent in in -- mainstream media doesn't cover this.
The town halls of daily callers the bright -- so you have Katie -- what you carry picket and Peter Schweitzer and in my influence of combine that and tell the whole story.
In really end with the Obama administration -- concentrate.
Everything the bottom -- ratios and one film and quite frankly I think it's shocking when you see it all together you're shocked because of because we start much later we go fast and furious Bob blah blah and even now -- -- -- scandal would -- broke after you were doing the film on the cover what is the same type of thing where they don't want -- they -- -- -- -- do not want the information coming out.
Well you know the media can only cover so much about these scandals -- this is the first time that he -- have the opportunity.
-- sustained discussion.
Of these important issues like Solyndra like fast and furious which is a continuing scandal.
We cover a lot of it but now we know.
That there are hundreds of others Mexicans who were killed as a result of these guns and this movie is the first long term discussion or -- long form discussion.
Of this important scandal.
You know it would it will get it does more.
Drug dealers we didn't tracked them and the result in the deaths of a lot of people including a border agent.
And then of course will move forward looking for information executive privileges involved from the most transparent administration at -- -- in history.
This is this administration is less transparent than the Bush Administration which we can all agreed to wasn't all -- bigger fan of transparency.
They they find us on virtually every document requests we've made we've made -- it's -- thousand we filed over a hundred lawsuits.
And the problem with this administration is they talk a line -- transparency.
But they fight you to death in the courts found.
And whether it be fast and furious they -- turn over documents got to go over to court to let it happen and Benghazi gates.
-- and it's not just about Obama it's All the President's Men.
The real villain of this movie in some ways is arguably -- colder.
His Justice Department is a locus of evil in this administration when it comes to public policy discussion.
If you AV inlet is it must -- -- fast and furious I mean he say that -- executive privilege that's like a year into the process mean they fight congress tooth and nail for the for -- to release any documents.
The thing that's so I think that in the -- to film the so shocking.
It's literally like -- -- it's everything they've got now it's been Ghazi and Univision just came out with more and more unfortunately.
Of people -- -- thousands of guns and there or kids that were mowed down -- -- -- the most advanced weapons you know -- -- -- -- -- are salt.
Weapons -- look at what they given -- -- yes they're giving it to cartel members they've given it to known drug dealers with no means -- tracking it.
It's like -- to hear -- kill people.
I mean and by the way for for almost a year the mainstream media except except for CBS one time you head -- -- of daily caller.
Yet Katie pavlik -- town hall again Kerry pick of The Washington Times.
He had these intrepid young reporters.
Continuing to track this story you did die -- -- -- died and if if that mainstream media has had.
Had followed this nothing would happen office isn't basically we do an -- for putting all of this great information and so many -- -- really hard on getting out there.
And you putting it together and saying -- -- -- This is what -- look -- an education is like a closing argument for this election cycle.
But we go back to the Clinton days we showed that this just didn't have I got a clip of Clinton ninety you know issue is -- the increasing member of the Chinese generals -- Clinton was.
About I think about money they came -- -- it from Arkansas.
And they say -- but they saw way to enrich themselves upon administration didn't have the Bush Administration which Tom it took to try to take to the Supreme Court.
But then in the Obama administration what is so callous about it is he -- specifically part of hope and change if you remember.
I'm going to be the most transparent president this -- be the most transparent administration in American history.
And it's anything but the second -- their -- this film.
Is actually shocking -- have done all these scandals and shown how judicial watch and these new media new media companies have -- to fight him every step of the way.
The problem is in the film pointed out that this is not going to begin.
It didn't begin with the Obama administration and it won't and after -- -- get off course and it's getting it's metastasized.
Under this administration lets.
