HANNITY: Inspector General Horowitz is Just Getting Started on James Comey Probe

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.19.19

Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday, Sean warned disgraced FBI boss James Comey that Inspector General Horowitz is “just getting started.”

“This is just the beginning for Jim Comey, this is the low hanging fruit. Comey has escaped charges so far, but Horowitz is just getting started… To top it all off, Horowitz indicated he’ll also look at irregularities surrounding Comey’s testimony on Capitol Hill,” said Hannity.

“We know of three, there maybe five or more occasions Comey and others were warned to not trust Christopher Steele,” he added.

Earlier this month, US Attorney Jessie Liu officially recommended proceeding with charges against former FBI official Andrew McCabe over his handling of sensitive material during Hillary’s email investigation.

“U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu has recommended moving forward with charges against Andrew McCabe, Fox News has learned, as the Justice Department rejects a last-ditch appeal from the former top FBI official,” reports Fox News. “McCabe — the former deputy and acting director of the FBI — appealed the decision of the U.S. attorney for Washington all the way up to Jeffrey Rosen, the deputy attorney general, but the department rejected that request, according to a person familiar with the situation.”

“The potential charges relate to DOJ inspector general findings against him regarding misleading statements concerning a Hillary Clinton-related investigation,” adds Fox. “A source close to McCabe’s legal team said they received an email from the Department of Justice which said, ‘The Department rejected your appeal of the United States Attorney’s Office’s decision in this matter. Any further inquiries should be directed to the United States Attorney’s Office.’”

McCabe was recently hired as a commentator for CNN.

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Any Kavanaugh Impeachment Based on NYT Article ‘Dead on Arrival’ in the Senate

Senator Lindsey Graham spoke with Sean Hannity Tuesday night on the Democrats’ latest smears against Judge Brett Kavanaugh; saying any impeachment proceedings based on the botched New York Times article will be “dead on arrival” in the US Senate.

“The left is still not done smearing Justice Kavanaugh. It doesn’t stop. What is your reaction to the Times?” asked Hannity.

“When you think you’ve hit bottom, you really haven’t when it comes to Trump. It’s not really news that the New York Times did a sloppy job reporting about Trump and Kavanaugh. What is news is that two United States Senators running for president have called for Kavanaugh’s impeachment,” said Graham.

“A member of the House has introduced an impeachment resolution against Kavanaugh… Any impeachment of Judge Kavanaugh based on the New York Times story is dead on arrival in the Senate. Any impeachment of President Trump based on the Mueller report is dead on arrival in the United States Senate,” he added.

Senator Kamala Harris doubled-down on her calls for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Monday night; calling new allegations against the judge “credible.”

“Christine Blasey Ford, who literally had nothing to gain by coming forward… nothing to gain. She had a perfect life. And she looked at the fact that this guy was being nominated and said, ‘the American people had the right to know what I know,’ and she was treated like a criminal,” Harris told MSNBC.

“So yes, I call for impeachment,” Harris told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. “I believe that is the clearest way for us to get an investigation of these allegations and we should open an investigation of these allegations.”

“I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. He must be impeached,” posted Harris on social media over the weekend.

The New York Times ultimately issued an apology and retracted key aspects of the story after the alleged victim claims to have no memory of the incident.

GRAHAM ON HANNITY: Bruce Ohr’s 302s ‘Just the Tip of the Iceberg’ on Anti-Trump Bias at DOJ

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.09.19

Sen. Lindsey Graham stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh in on Bruce Ohr’s recently released 302 documents; saying the material is “just the tip of the iceberg” on anti-Trump bias at the Department of Justice during the 2016 election.

“This is the tip of the iceberg. I know personally that there’s a lot more out there. The word that keeps coming out is: ‘Bias.’ The people investigating Clinton wanted her to win and Trump to lose. The people that started the investigation against Trump wanted him to lose and her to win,” said Graham.

“There’s a common theme here, that the investigation of Trump was very biased… They knew that if they brought a case against Clinton she would lose the election, and they didn’t want her to lose,” he added.

Former FBI agent Peter Strzok -know for his anti-Trump text messages with other employees- is suing the federal government for allegedly violating his First and Fifth Amendment rights.

“In a lawsuit filed on Tuesday, Strzok excoriates the Justice Department and FBI for their handling of his dismissal over a trove of text messages he wrote to a colleague that were critical of Trump. Strzok accuses the president of inappropriately bullying law enforcement officials deciding his fate, raises questions about why his texts were leaked to the media and lambastes the administration for only defending its employees’ free speech rights when they are praising Trump,” reports Politico.

“Specifically, Strzok’s lawsuit accuses the agencies of violating his First and Fifth Amendment rights by firing him over the texts and then depriving him of due process to challenge his expulsion. And, Strzok argues, DOJ’s decision to give the incendiary messages to reporters before handing them to Congress — generating blaring headlines — was ‘deliberate and unlawful,’ a violation of the Privacy Act,” adds the website.
