Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday, Sean weighed-in on Rep. Devin Nunes’ recent bombshell that the FBI opened their investigation into the Trump campaign “without a single shred of intelligence.”
“Devin Nunes just revealed something that should concern every American watching tonight. The FBI investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia was started without a single shred of intelligence,” said Hannity.
“The FBI began a serious investigation of an American political campaign unprompted by any intelligence at all,” he added. “This is a deadly serious charge coming from the Intel Committee Chairman.”
“Do you still think the Obama White House would never tamper with a politically charged investigation? Think again,” said Sean.

DEVIN’S DEADLINE: Nunes Gives FBI ONE WEEK to Hand Over RUSSIA INTEL
House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes threatened to sue the Department of Justice and the FBI this week over their continued refusal to release official documents related to the ongoing Russia probe.
Rep. Nunes sent a scathing letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein demanding the material; saying the officials failed to comply with subpoenas issued last month.
“On March 14th, 2018, Committee investigators were given access to a still heavily redacted version of the EC (FBI memo known as an electronic communication), which — as I informed Director Wray the next day via phone — was unsatisfactory,” Nunes wrote.
“On March 23, 2018, FBI’s Assistant Director for Legislative Affairs informed the Committee that FBI would refuse to further unredact the EC (FBI memo) based on its sensitivity. The document in question is not highly classified, and law enforcement sources have apparently not been shy about leaking to the press information that the Department and Bureau refuse to share with Congress,” he added.
“You are hereby directed to produce to the Committee, by Wednesday April 11, 2018, an unredacted version of the EC,” he concluded.

ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff Admits DEMOCRAT MEMO Riddled with SENSITIVE INTEL
The liberal lawmaker behind the Democratic “rebuttal” to Devin Nunes’ FISA memo publicly admitted his document was riddled with sensitive intelligence and classified material; saying his colleagues “need to go through” the letter and remove the information before President Trump declassifies the dossier.
Rep. Adam Schiff -the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee- admitted the left-wing mistake while speaking at a breakfast event Wednesday morning, saying his memo does include “sources and methods” used by the nation’s intelligence community.
“We need to go through that and identify that which remains classified and would implicate sources and methods or investigative interests,” said Schiff.
Schiff’s comments are in sharp contrast to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s outright rage at President Trump for his refusal to release the Democratic ‘rebuttal.”
“President Trump’s refusal to release Intelligence Committee Democrats’ memo is a stunningly brazen attempt to cover up the truth about the Trump-Russia scandal from the American people,” said Pelosi.
“The President’s decision to block the Democratic memo from release is part of a dangerous and desperate pattern of cover-up on the part of the President,” she added. “Clearly, the President has something to hide.”
