LOU DOBBS, HOST: Good evening, everybody.

It has been a big week in presidential politics, and today the trend continues, Wikileaks today agreeing with Donald Trump that the election is rigged. The whistleblowing Web site tweeted this. Quote, "There is no U.S. election. There is power consolidation. Rigged primary, rigged media and rigged `pied piper' candidate drive consolidation."

And the American people agree. A Politico/Morning Consult poll out today finds nearly half of respondents, 46 percent, say widespread voter fraud may take place on election day, those polled saying they're most concerned with voter intimidation, illegal immigrants voting and people fraudulently casting ballots for people who are dead.

We'll examine the issue tonight. I'll be talking with noted conservative commentator Patrick Buchanan, who says the Republican establishment is simply panicking about Donald Trump's refusal to accept the election outcome unconditionally, he says, because, quote, "The fears of the people for whom Trump speaks no longer accept its political legitimacy or moral authority."

We'll take that with Pat Buchanan. Also among my guests tonight, The Weekly Standard's Fred Barnes. Trump supporter, evangelical leader Pastor Robert Jeffress, joins me.

And a lot to take up here tonight. Donald Trump once again outworking Hillary Clinton, holding three rallies in the battleground states of North Carolina and Pennsylvania. At a rally in Fletcher, North Carolina, Trump hit Hillary Clinton over another pay-to-play scandal uncovered by Wikileaks.


DONALD TRUMP (R), PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: Now from Wikileaks, we've just learned she tried to get $12 million from the king of Morocco for an appearance. More pay-for-play.


TRUMP: That's why I'm proposing a pack (ph) of ethics reforms to make our government honest once again.



DOBBS: Trump will be holding another rally this hour in Newtown, Pennsylvania. We'll be bringing that to you when he takes the stage.

Our top story tonight, the 14th -- the 14th -- tranche of Wikileaks documents released today. There have now been some 25,000 e-mails made public by Wikileaks, this latest round Hillary Clinton arranging a $12 million donation from the king of Morocco, that money going to the Clinton Foundation. Clinton's close aide, Huma Abedin, blasted the arrangement. She wrote, quote, "Clinton created this mess, and she knows it," end quote.

Let's look at some of the most damaging e-mails to date. DNC chair Donna Brazile tipping off the Clinton campaign, turning over a question asked at a CNN presidential town hall. Listen to Brazile trying to defend, to explain that one!



MEGYN KELLY, FOX NEWS: Wikileaks released a March 12 Podesta e-mail...

BRAZILE: I don't...

KELLY: ... showing you messaging the Clinton campaign with the exact wording of a question asked at the March 13th-

BRAZILE: Kelly...

KELLY: ... CNN/TV 1 town hall debate!

BRAZILE: Kelly...

KELLY: Where did you get it?

BRAZILE: You know, as a Christian woman, I understand persecution, but I will not sit here and be persecuted because your information is totally false.


DOBBS: And in a paid Wall Street speech, Hillary Clinton told top banking executives that she has, quote, "both a public and private" position on Wall Street reform, Clinton calling for open trade and open borders in a paid speech to a Brazilian bank, despite maintaining publicly that she was opposed to TPP, the free trade agreement with Pacific Rim nations, and Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta writing it's OK for illegals to vote with a driver's license.

Joining me now, executive editor of The Weekly Standard, FOX News contributor Fred Barnes. Fred, great to have you here.


DOBBS: In the two most recent national polls, Donald Trump actually has a lead or 1 points, 2 points. This is a tight race We have some battleground states that are a little wider than that. But this really is -- when you think of everything they've hit Donald Trump with, the liberal media, the Clinton cartel, the campaign, the GOP establishment -- I mean, it's incredible, his performance! Don't you think?

BARNES: Well, I think, you know, one of the things that is true here is that Donald Trump still has a chance to win the election. I don't think it's a particularly great chance, but he has one.

And you know, four times in this general election and earlier he has come back from falling behind 6, 7 points...

DOBBS: Right.

BARNES: ... behind, and every time, he's come back to be nearly tied with Hillary Clinton, did so after the two conventions.

DOBBS: Do you think it's...

BARNES: It's harder here, but it can happen.

DOBBS: Yes, I -- you say a slim chance. To me, it looks like a very good chance, two-and-a-half weeks to the election.

BARNES: Well, you cited a couple polls. There are an awful lot of them that show him trailing by 6 or 7 points.

DOBBS: Right.

BARNES: I think we -- I think we agree on one thing, and that is the election isn't over yet.

DOBBS: Yes. I -- but I do think it's important that we point out those two polls that I cited are the two most recent polls.

BARNES: Right.

DOBBS: And you know, the idea of carrying, you know, that tale through it all I'm not sure is particularly helpful. The IBD poll, by the way, we should point out, was the most accurate poll in 2000 -- in the 2012 contest.

BARNES: Indeed, it was.

DOBBS: This reaction of the national media -- and I don't say just liberal media this time, but the national media -- to Trump saying he will wait to see the outcome before saying that, you know, he would accept the outcome - - this is the instance in which I see the establishment and the media elites -- I mean, they are savaging him for being intelligent, for being rational and responsible to his voters, just as was Al Gore, just as eight liberals have been over the course of time!

What in the world -- could there be a more transparent bias and effort to attack the Republican nominee than this instance?

BARNES: Well, I can't think of one right off-hand. And you didn't mention much of the media's reaction and the reaction of a lot of Democrats to President George W. Bush winning in 2000. I still remember all those complaints that somehow, there was hanky-panky in Ohio and he didn't really win in 2004.

But this time -- look, I think Trump's statement (INAUDIBLE) I'll wait until the election -- election day to decide whether I'll accept the results or not.


BARNES: If it's a clear decision, I'll go along with that. But what this has done is -- I think he's been very clever. I think the media was just waiting to declare him completely dead in the water. The election's over. The race is over. Forget about it. And now they're just running around, trying to get him to say that he will accept the -- whatever the outcome is on election day, no matter what. I don't think he's going to say that.

DOBBS: You know what? The question should be framed by the -- by folks at home. Why would the national liberal media want him to accept the outcome unconditionally unless they, along with the establishment, had conspired to create an outcome that they would want his acquiescence, rather than otherwise? You know, you know, you can play this game all day long.


DOBBS: ... your view. I think that he was smart as the dickens because this has dominated the conversation since Wednesday.


DOBBS: It has served notice on the left, which has already -- they've already corrupted one election, and that was the entire primaries of the Democratic Party in which they absolutely stole the election from Senator Bernie Sanders!

It serves notice, along with, we should point out, operation -- Project Veritas and James O'Keefe, in which we find Democratic operatives, one of whom had been in the White House 340 times since 2009, actually going to his rallies and creating disruption, agitation and violence! I mean, he's done quite a job here, hasn't he!

BARNES: He has. And all -- and I think the result is he's confirming what an awful lot of people knew anyway (INAUDIBLE) investigative reporting that might have disclosed it, you know, months earlier -- it was just not there. And the media didn't do it and...


DOBBS: ... of the national liberal media, Fred, were too busy advising and consulting John Podesta and the Democratic campaign, don't you think? I mean, my goodness, you wouldn't want to interfere with their consulting work by asking for investigative journalism on the campaign that has already stolen one election and assured the nomination of Hillary Clinton.

BARNES: Well, I think it's pretty clear where most people in the media stand. And I think, you know, most Americans understand what Trump was really saying. He was saying, Look, I'm going to make sure this election is fair. And I assume he's going to do that. And we'll see what happens on November 8th and what he does then.

DOBBS: Yes. And he has asked for volunteers to be poll watchers and to assure things are in order, and that's going to be helpful to his cause and to the cause of his millions of supporters, as well. Fred Barnes...

BARNES: You know...

DOBBS: Go ahead. You get the last word here.

BARNES: I was just going to add one thing, you know, Lou. If there were extensive voter fraud, it would be -- it would be hard to expose. I mean, it really is. We don't know what's happened in a lot of earlier elections. I mean, there was the thought that it was voter fraud in Chicago in 1960 that elected JFK. But I've never seen evidence for that. It was just sort of thought to be the case.

DOBBS: Yes, I always like what John F. Kennedy's father said he would spend a lot to get him elected, but he wasn't going pay for a landslide.


DOBBS: Fred Barnes, thanks so much for being with us. We appreciate it.

BARNES: You're welcome.

DOBBS: Twin cyber attacks today disrupting some of the biggest Web sites on the internet. What's going on? Amazon, Spotify, Reddit, Paypal, Twitter among the sites taken down by cyber attackers. They launched what is called a distributed denial of service attack on Dyn, an internet infrastructure provider. A denial of service attack is when a Web service is intentionally overwhelmed by traffic from many different sources.

The Department of Homeland Security, though, says it's working to determine who was behind the attack. I'm surprised they don't know right now, aren't you, because they knew very early that the Russians were responsible for some of the source materials used by Wikileaks. Now, isn't it extraordinary we're not getting a straight answer yet out of these same agencies.

Multiple sources, however, telling FOX News that this attack does not appear to be directed by a foreign government, but perhaps by a disgruntled individual or individuals. And I say to that, I'm waiting for further sources to come forward because none of this is quite satisfying. This could be -- well, it could presage something -- something much greater, and it is a reason for concern for all of us.

We're coming right back. We have much more on the presidential campaign, on the nominees. And Donald Trump has taken the stage in Pennsylvania. We're going to come right back with his rally and his words in just a moment.

Stay with us. As I said, we'll be right back.

Trump says Obama and Hillary have utterly failed the American people.


DONALD TRUMP (R), PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: We have a bunch of babies running our country, folks. We have a bunch of losers. They're losers! They're babies! We have a president -- all he wants to do is campaign!


DOBBS: Kelly Riddell and Mark Simon join me here next.

And another day and a new batch of Wikileaks revelations. More damaging e- mails further expose the Clinton cartel and its corruption.

We'll have all of that and a lot more straight ahead. We're coming right back.


DOBBS: As I said, Donald Trump is holding a rally in the battleground state of Pennsylvania. And according to the RealClearPolitics average, Clinton has a 6-point lead there. Trump is at the Athletic Club Sports Training Center in Newtown.

Let's listen in.

DONALD TRUMP (R), PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: Not only will we end government corruption, but we'll end economic stagnation. My plan lowers our business tax from 35 percent to 15 percent, and lowers taxes for everybody straight across the board, everybody as individuals, and simplifies our tax code.

We're also going to rebuild our inner cities. African-Americans and Hispanics living in the inner cities are suffering. The violence is unbelievable and unbearable. You walk to the store with your child, and you get shot. There's no education. There are no jobs. There's no safety. Nearly 3,500 people have been shot in Chicago since January 1st, the beginning of the year. Homicides are up nearly 50 percent in Washington, D.C., and more than 60 percent in Baltimore.

And it's getting worse. Murder in the United States is up more -- think of it -- is up more than at any time over 45 years, the highest level in 45 years. You don't hear that from these dishonest people back there, meaning the media. Look at them. Look at them.


TRUMP: Most dishonest people. They are the most dishonest people.


DOBBS: You know -- you know, some people in the national liberal media are criticizing Donald Trump for effectively campaigning against the national liberal media. In point of fact, they may not like it, but he does have his point and no -- and we've seen his point proved this week, the number of people in the national media attacking him for saying that he would not -- that he would not accept the results of an election irrespective of the fraud or irrespective of the corruption of that election is mind-boggling.

Joining us tonight, Washington Times columnist Kelly Riddell. And we'll be going back to Donald Trump as -- as the situation warrants. Radio talk show host on New York's WOR Mark Simone joins us, as well.

Kelly, let me start with this -- this amazing reaction on the part of the national -- particularly left, but it's also broader than that -- the national media jumping on him for saying he would not accept the results until the time arrives. I've never seen a more screwball, wrong-headed reaction to anything by the national media as a group than this!

KELLY RIDDELL, WASHINGTON TIMES: It's hypocrisy at its best, given what happened in 2000 and what happened in 2004, the fact that John Kerry didn't concede until the next day. I mean, this is just -- it's getting too much to handle, and the media is getting too much to handle. The people are tuning out. They're simply losing faith in -- in -- in the media. The media's standing is at an all-time low.

And Donald Trump has a point, I mean, especially with the Project Veritas videos that (INAUDIBLE) undercover sting videos talking -- these Democratic operatives basically talking about how they're inciting riots at Donald Trump rallies and how they're trying to perpetrate voter fraud.

That was -- the media did not cover that. The major networks this week -- I mean, it was at a blackout. So to ignore that video, which broke on Monday, by the way...

DOBBS: How about...

RIDDELL: ... before Donald Trump said this and then -- and then not compute all this together is just -- is just awful. It's (INAUDIBLE)

DOBBS: And to ignore the fact, Mark, that there is the Democratic candidate, the nominee for the Democratic Party on the stage with Donald Trump wagging their finger at him and saying that his supporters have been violent while she full well knew that her campaign, the Democratic organization had already paid for operatives to go to his rallies to agitate and to incite violence, and which they did and shut down a rally in Chicago. I mean, that's chutzpah!

MARK SIMONE, WOR RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: Well, it's just awful. You know, when I -- when that debate ended, and everybody on those liberal networks - - of course, that doesn't narrow it down much, but you know who I mean -- screaming and yelling about how could he not accept the results of the election, I realized they were not accepting the results of the debate. He had won. The (INAUDIBLE) I saw even Nate Silver say so the other day. So we're down to just pick anything to go after him with.

I think they all decided a few weeks ago, you can't beat him on the issues. Let's just beat him on these things, these little quirky things. Let's try to just wear people down on him.

DOBBS: The interest, the energy, the enthusiasm on the part of Trump supporters versus those supporting Hillary Clinton -- Kelly, who has the edge, and how big do you expect the difference to be?

RIDDELL: This is where you can't trust the polls, right, because polls can't measure momentum. They can't measure enthusiasm. They don't know, especially given that they're predicting such a landslide for Hillary Clinton. How is that going to affect their voters? Are they even going to bother to come out to the polls on November 8th because she's going to win so dominantly? I know that the Donald Trump supporters are very enthusiastic, and it's really going to be a matter if they turn out in the numbers, and that's just something that the polls just don't measure.

DOBBS: Mark, you get the last word.

SIMONE: Well, I know he's doing well -- when you see the media in triple overdrive, they're at Defcon 1 trying to stop him. The day they relax a little, then I'll know he's in trouble.

DOBBS: Kelly Riddell, Mark Simone, thank you both for being here.

And please be sure to vote in our poll tonight. Do you trust the Obama Justice Department and intelligence agencies to investigate honestly Clinton corruption and Wikileaks documents? We'd like to hear from you on that. Cast your vote on Twitter @Loudobbs. Follow me on Twitter at Loudobbs, like me on Facebook, follow me on Instagram at Loudobbstonight.

On Wall Street, stocks were mixed, the Dow down 17 points, the S&P lost a fraction, the NASDAQ up 16. Volume on the big board, 2.4 billion shares. For the week, stocks higher, the Dow and S&P up just under 1 percent, the NASDAQ up barely 1 percent.

AT&T in advance talks to buy Time-Warner, a mega-merger that would unite AT&T's portfolio of wireless, broadband and satellite television services with Warner's entertainment empire. Apple also reportedly interested in Time-Warner and we are told watching the talks closely.

British American Tobacco making a $47 billion bid for roughly 58 percent of its U.S. peer, Reynolds American. The deal would create the largest listed tobacco company by revenue and market value in the entire world. And by the way, we're talking about over $200 billion worth of deals on this October Friday, quite, quite an impressive day in mergers and acquisitions.

A reminder to listen to my reports three times a day coast to coast on the Salem Radio Network.

Up next, Donald Trump says he is very concerned about a rigged election. The mainstream liberal media, however, says, Oh, don't -- don't worry your head about that. Look away. Nothing to see here.

Voter fraud the subject of my commentary next. And I'll tell you why every single citizen in this country ought to be very concerned about what is rigged and whether or not this election is among those things in this country that are rigged. My commentary is next.

Much more straight ahead. Stay with us.


DOBBS: A few thoughts now on a corrupt political system and a rigged election, the prospects, and for, if you will, a concerned citizenry that wants their votes counted, not diluted.

Donald Trump has been right on every major issue in this campaign to this point, none more so than his focus on a crooked election system. The liberal national media went crazy this week when Trump said we need to restore integrity to our electoral process.

It's extraordinary that this is where we are today. Why would anyone, why would the national mainstream media, why would anyone in the Democratic Party object to any candidates at any level -- their insistence on free and honest elections? According now to the left-wing media in this country -- that's about all of the media, by the way -- they would have you believe there's no voter fraud at all in this country.

But there is and we have detailed many of the cases here nightly. The Pew Charitable Trusts found one in eight voter registrations in this country that are either inaccurate or no longer valid. That means 24 million invalid voter registrations in and off itself, that's not fraud, that's just the opportunity for fraud.

Justice department whistle blower Christian Adams will be here with us Monday. Says there are four million dead voters on the voter rolls. And it's not just dead people voting. The governor of Texas Greg Abbott is now investigating the state's largest cases of voter fraud ever. Cases of political operatives filling out and returning other people's ballots without their consent. And where is the Obama justice department in all of this?

Instead of working to uphold the integrity of our electoral system, it's fighting to stop Texas and 30 other states that won voter I.D. laws. The problem of voter fraud is so pervasive. 2014 election study found more than 14 percent of non-citizens are registered to vote in this country. 14 percent of 24 million. More than three million voters and that approaches Obama's margin of victory in the popular vote in 2012.

That's how important voter registrations and voter integrity is. And within that group, are illegal immigrants who are also on the voting rolls and the Obama administration is pushing hard, a drive to register immigrants to vote. And there is no reason to believe that this administration would make discreet judgments about immigration or naturalization status.

We've learned through the WikiLeaks disclosures that Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta said, "All the illegal immigrants need to vote is a driver's license." And nearly one in four states now allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver's licenses.

So you tell me, is Donald Trump wrong to be concerned about the integrity of this election? Is it rigged? Or is it time for the American people get to rouse themselves from a long slumber base facts, deeply troubling facts and get to the polls, workers, observers or poll watchers and vote. And vote. Vote for your country or lose it. That's where we are.

The quotation of the evening, this one from P.J. O'Rourke who said this, "In our brief national history, we have shot four our presidents. We're worried five of them to death, impeached one and hounded another out of office. And when all else fails we hold an election and assassinate their character". We're coming right back with much more. Stay with us.

Donald Trump taking on Hillary. The Clinton cartel, the national liberal media and the failing political establishment.

DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: It's a campaign about rejecting the cynicism and elitism of our failed political establishment which is doing great harm to everybody.

DOBBS: My next guest says the establishment is now in a panic. Pat Buchanan joins us here next. And this diver about to come face to face with one of the ocean's deadliest predators, the unbelievable close encounter in the video up next. You'll feel like you're in the action, but only if you stay with us through these important messages. Stay with us, we'll be right back.


DOBBS: Donald Trump on the attack today, condemning the establishment at a rally in North Carolina.

TRUMP: It's a campaign about rejecting the cynicism and elitism of our failed political establishment. I'm going to fight for every citizen of every background from every stretch of this nation. I'm going to fight for every child living in poverty. I'm going to fight for African-Americans who have not been treated fairly.

DOBBS: And our next guest says the establishment is now in a full-blown panic over Donald Trump. And joining me now, Pat Buchanan, Senior Advisor to three presidents, twice himself a candidate for the republican presidential nomination, nationally syndicated columnist and best-selling author and great American. Pat, great to have you here.

PAT BUCHANAN, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: Great talking with you again, Lou.

DOBBS: I have to say, to talk about the establishment being in a panic. You can sense is when you look at what is happening with this full-on 360 degree assault by the national liberal media against Donald Trump. It's breathtaking and because he said, I will tell you at the time whether he accepts the results of the election." It is the most bizarre phenomenon I have witnessed in this campaign and we've had a few over the course of this almost year and a half. It's remarkable.

BUCHANAN: You know, Lou, I am astonished at the hysteria. You know, Trump goes out there and says, look, I'll tell -- I'll tell you later. Let's have a little suspense on whether I'm going to accept the results. And then they go in this panic and so he's going to be like the British general who burned down Washington simply think because he might phone Hillary Clinton that night and say congratulations.


BUCHANAN: I mean -- but I'll tell you what expalins is--

DOBBS: The modern day Al Gore.


DOBBS: I mean, oh, my. What a horror thought.

BUCHANAN: But you're sure, but you know, but there's a real terror at the heart of the establishment for a simple reason. Trump has exposed their complete disconnectedness to the country they're supposed to represent and lead. He basically has indicted and convicted them of leaving our borders open and allow tens of millions of people to walk across them, of the - taking our enormous manufacturing base and exporting it abroad. Costing $6 million jobs and of getting us into endless wars that they cannot win. He's exposed the real disconnect between the establishment and the country and the establishment is panicked.

DOBBS: I want to share with the audience, a paragraph from your column quote, quoting, Pat Buchanan, "It may rule and run the country and may rig the system through mass immigration and a mammoth welfare state so that Middle America is never again able to elect one of its own. But that establishment disconnected from the people it rules senses rightfully that it is unloved and even detested." End quote. A remarkable sentence and I think absolutely true.

BUCHANAN: Well, look at the facts. In the Democratic Party, Bernie Sanders a socialist, what did he win? Almost two dozen primaries and caucuses. Got 40 percent of the democratic vote. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump probably got 75 percent of all the republican votes. Trump got half of them. What these voters are saying, what those huge rallies for Trump still are saying is the American people dislike and even detest the establishment that has done this to them. They recognize who is at fault. And quite, frankly, Lou, the reaction, the hysterical reaction to what Trump said testifies to the fear that is gnawing at the heart of this establishment.
