Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Thursday night, Sean weighed-in on the Inspector General’s brutal report regarding James Comey, saying the disgraced FBI boss is not the “super-patriot” he pretends to be.
“The Inspector General released the first in a series of damning reports… This is a small one, very narrow in scope dealing with just one issue. The big report by the Inspector General on FISA abuse is expected to be brutal in its conclusions,” said Hannity.
“This report is exactly what we told you it would be. We know James Comey is not the super-patriot he claims, we know him to be a leaker and liar,” he added.
The Department of Justice’s Inspector General report into James Comey confirmed Thursday the former FBI boss violated standard procedures during his time in the Trump administration; stating he set a “dangerous example” in leaking material to the press.
“On May 16, 2017, Comey provided a separate copy of Memo 4 to Richman, who was one of Comey’s attorneys and also a close personal friend. Richman also had served as a Special Government Employee at the FBI during a portion of the time that Comey was FBI Director. Comey sent photographs of both pages of Memo 4 to Richman via text message from Comey’s personal cell phone. Comey instructed Richman to share the contents of Memo 4, but not the Memo itself, with a specific reporter for The New York Times,” the report confirms.
“By not safeguarding sensitive information obtained during the course of his FBI employment, and by using it to create public pressure for official action, Comey set a dangerous example for the over 35,000 current FBI employees—and the many thousands more former FBI employees—who similarly have access to or knowledge of non-public information,” Inspector General Michael Horowitz writes.
“However, were current or former FBI employees to follow the former Director’s example and disclose sensitive information in service of their own strongly held personal convictions, the FBI would be unable to dispatch its law enforcement duties properly, as Comey himself noted in his March 20, 2017 congressional testimony,” he said.
BOMBSHELL REPORT: Steele Admitted ‘Trump Dossier’ Intended to ‘Air Dirt’ on Trump Before Election Day
The latest explosive report from John Solomon is shedding new light on the shady background of the now-debunked ‘Trump Dossier,’ with documents revealing Christopher Steele was given until Election Day to “air dirt” on Donald Trump.
“Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec’s written account of her Oct. 11, 2016, meeting with FBI informant Christopher Steele shows the Hillary Clinton campaign-funded British intelligence operative admitted that his research was political and facing an Election Day deadline,” writes The Hill’s John Solomon.
“And that confession occurred 10 days before the FBI used Steele’s now-discredited dossier to justify securing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant to surveil former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page and the campaign’s ties to Russia,” he adds.
