Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on recent revelations that Christopher Steele was grilled by DOJ lawyers in June; facing tough questions over his debunked Trump Dossier.
“The investigation into the Deep State’s abuse of power has now come full circle. Christopher Steele -who created the Russian dossier- was grilled by federal prosecutors in June. The interview lasted more than 15 hours and was conducted by lawyers that were working for the DOJ’s Inspector General,” said Hannity.
“Make no mistake about it, a crucial development in the IG’s investigation into FISA abuse… We know for a fact that Steele’s dirty dossier was unverified as a matter of fact, it was unverifiable. Even Steele admitted under oath he had no idea if any of the content was true or not,” he added.
“Christopher Steele hated Donald Trump and he was being paid a ton of money,” said Hannity.
Despite Congressional Democrats’ non-stop efforts to ignore Robert Mueller’s “No Collusion” conclusion in recent weeks; far-left legislators and members of the Deep State are still refusing to acknowledge the Steele Dossier’s role in obtaining FISA warrants against US citizens.
The debunked dossier -used to surveil Trump campaign insiders during the 2016 presidential election- was deployed by top FBI officials and the Department of Justice to mislead the nation’s top-secret FISA courts.
Buzzfeed first published the material back in January 2017; kick-starting a two-year obsession by the mainstream media.
“A dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on Trump,” posted Buzzfeed.
“The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians. BuzzFeed News reporters in the US and Europe have been investigating various alleged facts in the dossier but have not verified or falsified them. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Obama and Trump,” added the author.

'THE ANSWER IS NO': Hannity’s Reality Check for CNN’s Jimmy Acosta
Sean Hannity torched CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta Wednesday; blasting the anti-Trump “journalist” after he bizarrely challenged the Fox News host to “schoolyard meeting.”
“As I said to little Fake News Jimmy Acosta, you have not earned time on the number one show in all of cable news. You can tell all your reps to stop begging my staff, the answer is no,” said Hannity. “Unlike you, I don’t peddle lies on the lowest rated cable network in America. Nor will I promote your lies on 618 of the best talk radio stations in America. Nor has anyone ever provided me scripts or talking points (another Acosta lie).”
“For the record, I do not recall meeting you on a bus, why did you miss your big chance to talk to me?” he asked. “Now I do have good news for you. I will gladly meet you privately in a mutually agreeable ‘schoolyard’ ALONE, as you requested. My only condition is this meeting will have nothing to do with your failing book, failing career, or failing network. I’m free the week of the 4th.”
Acosta attacked Hannity during a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt; calling Fox News a “house organ for the President.”
“[At] certain hours of the day on Fox…it is very much a house organ for the president,” Acosta said. “Have we ever witnessed a situation like that, where a network essentially just serves as an amplifier of the president’s message of the day? And to some extent, focused and fixated on the conspiracy theories that he spreads. That to me is very much the definition of propaganda and state TV.”
“The likes of Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, they’re willing to go off on me on their shows, but they’re not willing to have me on in person to defend myself,” Acosta added. “What’s with that? If you’re so darn tough, why don’t you give me an invitation to come on your show? What I’ve found over the last few days is that they’re not willing to do that. They’re willing to shoot spitballs from the sidelines like the class clown, but they’re not willing to meet me on the schoolyard. And that’s on them.”

ANARCHY IN THE UK: See Hannity's EXCLUSIVE Photos from INSIDE TRUMP Protest
Donald Trump traveled to the United Kingdom for the first time as President of the United States of America this week, sparking a fierce backlash from left-wing Londoners and their leader Mayor Sadiq Khan.
Sean Hannity’s team was in the UK Capital to witness the liberal demonstrations first hand Friday as thousands of protesters hit the streets to show their opposition to the President’s “racist” and “xenophobic” policies.
The Mayor of London raised international headlines earlier this year when he urged British Prime Minister Theresa May to disinvite Trump to the United Kingdom, saying he “was not welcome” in the capital.
