Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on new reports that Robert Mueller was actively pursuing a position in the Trump administration as FBI director; raising new questions over his potential conflict-of-interests.
“According to another report, Mueller was in fact pursuing the open FBI director job when he met with Donald Trump in 2017. He didn’t get that position. Just a short time later he was investigating a president that had passed him over for a job,” said Hannity.
“That would raise serious conflict-of-interest concerns, not to mention his close relationship with Jim Comey,” he added.

BACKING OFF? After Demanding Impeachment, Hillary Warns Dems Not to ‘Jump to Conclusions’
Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton seemingly backed-off her latest calls for impeachment Tuesday; warning fellow Democrats to not “jump to any conclusions” on the Ukraine.
I think the evidence concerning Ukraine is so dramatic and irrefutable because it came right out of the White House. So let the impeachment inquiry proceed,” Clinton told ABC News. “I know that they will do a thoughtful, thorough job. Nobody should jump to any conclusions.”

“From everything we know and we don’t know much, this is an experienced person who saw things that bothered him. That’s what the whole whistle-blower statute is for. And it is to protect their identity. And I understand he’s going to testify and we’ll let the process unfold,” she added.
Clinton’s comments are a stark contrast to statement she made earlier this week, writing “The president of the United States has betrayed our country. That’s not a political statement—it’s a harsh reality, and we must act. He is a clear and present danger to the things that keep us strong and free. I support impeachment.”

BOMBSHELL: Volker Testimony Reveals Ukrainians ‘Were Not Pressured’ by Trump, Read His Statement Here
Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett and former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy weighed-in Friday on newly released details of US diplomat Kurt Volker’s testimony regarding Ukraine; saying foreign leaders “were not pressured” by the Trump administration to pursue corruption allegations against Joe Biden.
“Allow me to begin by stressing that you and the American people can be reassured and proud that the Department of State and the Department of Defense, and the professionals working there—civil and foreign service and military—have conducted themselves with the highest degree of professionalism, integrity, and dedication to the national interest. That is a testament to the strength of our people, our institutions, and our country,” Volker told Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill.
“At no time was I aware of or took part in an effort to urge Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Biden. As you will see from the extensive text messages I am providing, which convey a sense of real-time dialogue with several different actors, Vice President Biden was never a topic of discussion,” he added.
“Volker -behind closed doors- gave a passionate opening statement. The bottom line of his testimony is that the Ukrainians were not pressured, they never raised any issue of quid pro quo, they did not view the President’s phone call to be inappropriate in any way,” said Hannity.
“The main point is Volker told the Committee that Ukraine was not pressured, quid pro quo was never raised, the President’s phone call was normal… Now we have two ambassadors who are saying this was a normal conversation. This is exactly what President Trump has stated,” said Jarrett.
