Fox News star Sean Hannity had a message for the mainstream media talking heads that have been predicting President Donald Trump’s demise on Wednesday.
The media’s “predictable hysteria” over the latest memo doesn’t mean special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe has anything, Hannity said.
“Not even close.”
“Here are the facts: the Mueller memo makes references to Lt. Gen. Flynn violating — this is how deep they had to dig here — violating the Logan Act. The Logan Act is an archaic law that was passed, get this, in 1799 and it was only responsible for two indictments in the 1800s,” Hannity said on his Wednesday night show. “Now, he was also allegedly been investigated for violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act or FARA, as it’s called, which was used only seven times since it became law in 1966.”
That’s when he unloaded a bombshell on Mueller and his media supporters, saying the local news cycle circus was evidence that the special counsel’s office was “desperate” and “pathetic.”
Hannity said Flynn was forced to plead guilty only because Mueller had bankrupted him with legal bills and threatened to turn on his family.
“Is that what justice in America is supposed to look like to you? What about Mr. Mueller? Are you happy about this? Is this what we get after your 567-day investigation? This guy served his country for 33 years, including five years in combat?” Hannity asked.
Despite the long-running investigation, there remains zero evidence of any kind of collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
“According to the memo, Flynn agreed to cooperate with the Mueller investigation but the details of that cooperation are redacted. However, the memo does detail zero evidence of collusion, none, zero once again. And while an American military hero’s life has been wrecked for a process crime, we’ll take a look at those on the left. Well, seemingly will never be prosecuted for their lying,” Hannity said.
He went on to list the many political allies of former President Barack Obama that have been caught lying to investigators as evidence of the hypocritical standard Flynn was being held in comparison to.
“Long-time Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin — remember, they lied to the FBI about Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail system. DOJ official Bruce Ohr or Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson likely lied. How do we know? Because they gave completely contradictory testimony,” Hannity pointed out. “Then we have dirty dossier author Christopher Steele, he was fired from the FBI for lying. That didn’t stop him from trying to work with Bruce Ohr and feed Special Counsel Mueller more of his phony lies in the course of this investigation.”
“James Clapper lied under oath about the national surveillance program. So, too, did John Brennan as he also likely lied about — under oath about leaking. And, we know James Comey lied to Congress about when he wrote the report exonerating Clinton and Comey’s second in command Andrew McCabe was fired because of a long pattern of lying! Don’t forget Lois Lerner lied to investigators about the IRS scandal.”
“Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch lied about talking to anyone on the Clinton campaign about the FBI’s Clinton probe — and another Obama Attorney General Eric Holder lied under oath on multiple occasions.”
Hannity went on to describe Flynn as a “decorated war hero” that didn’t deserve this treatment.
