Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Thursday night, Sean ripped the Democrats’ never-ending impeachment fantasy; saying the entire exercise is nothing more than a three-year long “temper tantrum.”
“The President has every reason to be glad and happy because it’s about to be game-over for the Democrats’ latest scheme. Democrats don’t have the votes to keep this going any longer… Adam Schiff is begging and pleading for a few days of new witness testimony,” said Hannity.
“The Democrats argument is too insane to be true. Have you ever heard anything so stupid in your entire life?” he asked. “Voters see through this charade. This is the culmination of a three-year long temper tantrum.

CRUZ ON HANNITY: ‘Nancy Pelosi’s Impeachment Circus is DONE’
Sen. Ted Cruz spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night on the House’s decision to finally transmit the Articles of Impeachment; saying “Nancy Pelosi’s circus is done.”
“The Senate has the sole responsibility to have the trial… Why are they talking about bringing in other people?” asked Hannity.
“The good news is Nancy Pelosi’s circus is done. We’re not going to see the one-sided show trial the House has engaged in for months. That farce is over,” said Cruz.
“The Senate will conduct a fair trial. We’ll listen to what they have to say. But we’re going to give President Trump the full opportunity to defend himself. Once the President defends himself, he will be acquitted. The Articles are ridiculous,” he added.

DERSHOWITZ ON HANNITY: Democrats Are Putting Themselves ‘ABOVE THE LAW’ on Impeachment Push
Attorney and legal analyst Alan Dershowitz spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night on the Democrats’ unconstitutional push to impeach President Trump; saying any move to remove him from office would be putting themselves “above the law.”
“Fox has always had a much more diverse approach. Nobody has ever told me what to say on this show or any other show. I stand up for civil liberties no matter who the president is… Congress cannot impeach President Trump, if they did, they would be putting themselves above the law,” said Dershowitz.
“The Constitution outlines what requires impeachment: Treason, bribery, high-crimes and misdemeanors. Unless there’s compelling evidence of that, impeachment is not constitutionally permissible,” he added.
The New York Times published a “draft” Articles of Impeachment against President Trump days ago; mocking up a document that could be used as a roadmap for Congressional Democrats should they attempt to remove the President from office.
“Calls for President Trump’s impeachment are getting louder. Since the release of Robert Mueller’s report, White House stonewalling of congressional subpoenas and Mr. Mueller’s first public comments, almost 60 House Democrats, a quarter of the caucus, have said they support an impeachment inquiry,” writes the New York Times.
“What might impeachment articles against Mr. Trump look like? To find out, we reviewed the articles of impeachment drawn up against Richard Nixon in 1974 and Bill Clinton in 1998. Then we edited them — by removing and adding passages — to match the president’s conduct as described in the Mueller report and elsewhere,” adds the author.
Read the first section below:
The Russian government engaged in a sophisticated campaign to influence the 2016 presidential election. On June 17, 1972, and prior thereto, agents of the Committee for the Re-election of the President committed unlawful entry of the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee in Washington, District of Columbia, for the purpose of securing political intelligence.May 17, 2017, a special counsel was appointed to investigate Russian interference, including any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign. The special counsel was also given “the authority to investigate and prosecute federal crimes committed in the course of, and with intent to interfere with, the special counsel’s investigation, such as perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and intimidation of witnesses.” Subsequent thereto, Richard M. NixonDonald J. Trump, using the powers of his high office, engaged personally and through his close subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct or plan designed to delay, impede and obstruct the investigation of such illegal entryRussian contacts and potential obstruction of justice; to cover up, conceal and protect those responsible; and to conceal the existence and scope of other unlawful covert activities.
