Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean slammed House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler’s decision to have John Dean testify before Congress; saying the top Democrat officially “jumped the shark.”
“Nadler literally jumped the shark. Instead of passing laws, Nadler invited the felon John Dean to testify. The convicted felon turned partisan hack… You might remember John Dean was once the White House counsel under Richard Nixon where he was known as the manipulator behind Watergate,” said Hannity.
“John Dean is a convicted felon… Disbarred too, perfect guy for ‘Fake News’ CNN. Naturally, Jerrold Nadler was more than happy to give this known liar yet another platform,” he added.
Nadler officially abandoned his push to hold the Attorney General in contempt earlier this week.
“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler announced Monday that he plans to hit pause on efforts to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt, after reaching a deal with the Justice Department for access to evidence related to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report,” reports Fox News.
Nadler’s office released a written statement hours after making an agreement with the DOJ to review more details of the Mueller report.
“I am pleased to announce that the Department of Justice has agreed to begin complying with our committee’s subpoena by opening Robert Mueller’s most important files to us, providing us with key evidence that the Special Counsel used to assess whether the President and others obstructed justice or were engaged in other misconduct,” Nadler said. “These documents will allow us to perform our constitutional duties and decide how to respond to the allegations laid out against the President by the Special Counsel.”
Just last week, Nadler refused to back-down from his renewed calls for more investigations into the Trump administration; asserting Mueller’s report had evidence of “multiple crimes.”

“We’re investigating all of the things we would investigate, frankly, in an impeachment inquiry. We are starting with the Mueller report which shows ample evidence of multiple crimes of obstruction of justice and abuse of power. We will have testimony about that,” said Nadler.
“It may very well come to a formal impeachment inquiry, we will see,” he added.
