Sean Hannity slammed the Democratic Party’s latest push to impeach the President Monday night; saying liberal politicians face a major “liability” during the 2020 election should they try to remove Donald Trump from the White House.
“I don’t see this working out well. Especially with the liability of Biden. I see another boomerang coming really quickly. I don’t think the media is going to be able to spin the Biden aspect of this and blame Trump for an innocent phone call,” said Hannity.
“I don’t see the Democrats having done much of anything, except impede any progress. They’re not working on any issues. Now they’ve come up with another witch hunt,” he added.
Sen. Lindsey Graham unloaded on his far-left colleagues for their new Ukraine obsession earlier this week; saying the Salem Witch Trials had “more due process” than their latest investigation.
“The whistleblower said, ‘I have no direct knowledge. White House officials told me this. They told me about a phone call.’ There’s a disconnect. Who are these people and what are they up to? The Salem Witch Trials had more due process than this,” said Graham.
"The Salem witch trials had more due process than this" – @LindseyGrahamSC
In the eyes of Democrats and the media, @realDonaldTrump has been guilty since Nov. 9, 2016. His crime? Winning the election
They've been trying to undo that ever since. Total witch hunt! pic.twitter.com/Qp9VW2oD4d

Graham’s comments echo similar statements he made last week, demanding the identity of those who leaked internal White House conversations to the whistleblower.
“It is imperative we find out which White House official talked to the whistleblower and why. Why didn’t they lodge the complaint?” asked Graham on social media.
“As to the other matters in complaint: Clearly a coordinated effort to take second-hand information to create a narrative damaging to the President. When I think of whistleblower complaints I generally think of someone with first-hand knowledge of the events in question,” he added.
GOWDY ON WHISTLEBLOWER: You Can’t Use ‘Anonymous Sources’ in the Courtroom
Former Congressman Trey Gowdy stopped by ‘Hannity’ Monday night to weigh-in on the media’s latest attack on President Trump; saying he could never use “anonymous sources in a courtroom.”
“Congressman, walk me through this,” said Hannity, referring to the Democrats’ recent obsession with Trump’s private phone call with the President of Ukraine.
“No offense to reporters, but I couldn’t use anonymous sources in a courtroom, every witness I called was cross-examined. The reporters do whatever it is they do; I need to eyeball the witness and judge their credibility,” said Gowdy.
“If you’re going to investigate one fact pattern, you have to investigate a nearly identical fact pattern. What they don’t like is the duplicity of always looking at Republicans but having the tendency to ignore [Democrats],” he added.

HANNITY: Intelligence Community Inspector General Claims Whistleblower Had 'Political Bias' Against Trump
Fox News’ Ed Henry spoke with Sean Hannity Tuesday night regarding the President’s personal phone call with the leader of Ukraine; saying the Inspector General found the whistleblower may have had “political bias” against Donald Trump.
“The White House is not just releasing the transcript of this conversation, they’re releasing other documents including a look at what the Inspector General found about the whistleblower who started this whole thing,” said Henry.
“I’m told by senior officials that the Inspector General found the whistleblower had political bias in favor of a rival candidate against President Trump in 2020,” he added.
The White House released the transcript Wednesday morning.
“Congratulations on a great victory. We all watched from the United States and you did a terrific job. The way you came from behind, -somebody who wasn’t given much of a chance, and you ended up winning easily. It’s a fantastic achievement. Congratulations,” Trump said at the beginning of the conversation.
“You are absolutely right Mr. President. We did win big and we worked hard for _his. We worked a lot but I would like to confess to you that I had an opportunity to learn from you. We used quite a few of your skills· and knowledge and were able to use it as an example for our elections, it is true that these were unique elections,” said Ukrainian President Zelensky.
“The other thing, There’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son,. that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… It sounds horrible to me,” Trump added.
