Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on Michael Flynn’s decision to withdraw his guilty plea; claiming his prosecutors were acting in “bad faith.”
“After months if irregularities in the Michael Flynn case, now Flynn has formally filed a motion to withdraw his guilty plea; alleging bad faith by his prosecutors,” said Hannity. “We know that the Inspector General found James Comey lacked candor, that would be lying.”
“We know that the FBI investigators that interviewed Michael Flynn didn’t think he was lying, they said that,” he added.

BREAKING NOW: DOJ Inspector General Report Confirms James Comey ‘Violated FBI Policy'
The Department of Justice released their highly-anticipated review of James Comey’s practices before his firing by President Trump Thursday; confirming the former FBI bureau boss had “violated” procedures by documenting his conversations with the Commander-in-Chief and other infractions.
“The DOJ inspector general says ex-FBI Director James Comey violated policies with memos documenting private conversations with President Trump,” reports Fox News.
“By not immediately reporting that he had provided Memo 2 to his attorneys when Comey first learned that the FBI had designated a small portion of Memo 2 as classified at the ‘CONFIDENTIAL’ level, Comey violated FBI policy,” writes the report.
Inspector General: Justice Department declined to prosecute Comey. For our part: 'We conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement.' https://t.co/CC4y3Srj8B

“Comey’s actions violated Department or FBI policy, or the terms of Comey’s FBI Employment Agreement. As described in this report, we conclude that Comey’s retention, handling, and dissemination of certain Memos violated Department and FBI policies, and his FBI Employment Agreement,” adds the review. “We have previously faulted Comey for acting unilaterally and inconsistent with Department policy.103 Comey’s unauthorized disclosure of sensitive law enforcement information about the Flynn investigation merits similar criticism. In a country built on the rule of law, it is of utmost importance that all FBI employees adhere to Department and FBI policies, particularly when confronted by what appear to be extraordinary circumstances or compelling personal convictions. Comey had several other lawful options available to him to advocate for the appointment of a Special Counsel, which he told us was his goal in making the disclosure. What was not permitted was the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive investigative information, obtained during the course of FBI employment, in order to achieve a personally desired outcome.”

HANNITY ON FLYNN REPORT: The Former Trump Aide’s ‘Life in Limbo’ for THIS?
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on Robert Mueller’s recently released report regarding Michael Flynn; saying the special counsel held the former Trump aide’s life “in limbo” for an entire year for no apparent reason.
“If you believe in this constitutional republic, equal justice under the law, application of our laws, you ought to be very concerned tonight and outraged,” said Hannity.
“General Flynn’s entire life has been put in limbo for an entire year for this? They even used the Logan Act… He’s lost his house because he couldn’t afford the attorneys. His life’s work of 33 years of service washed down the drain for this? Reputation destroyed for this?” he asked.
“This is the thanks this country gives him? This is how we treat people? What kind of justice system is this?” said Hannity.
