Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Thursday night, Sean weighed-in on the shocking abuse of power inside the Department of Justice in the run-up to President Trump’s inauguration; saying the scale of corruption and bias is “far bigger than Watergate.”
“We’ve been telling you it’s coming, it’s now here… Classified DOJ documents that members of Congress are now reviewing, it shows widespread and extensive FISA abuses against the Trump campaign,” said Sean.
“Members of Congress were able to get their hands on all these classified documents. At the last-minute Rod Rosenstein tried to stop it by going into Paul Ryan’s office,” he added.
“It is more disturbing than we ever thought. Our sources are telling us that the abuse of power is far bigger than Watergate,” Hannity said. “What we’re talking about tonight is the systematic abuse of power, the weaponizing of those powerful tools of intelligence, and the shredding of our Fourth Amendment constitutional rights that protect all of us.”
“What we’re talking about tonight is the abuse of the powerful tools of intelligence that we use to spy on people, except those tools were used against an opposition candidate and a president-elect and his entire time,” he added.
“Not only was it done under false pretenses, but with the help of Hillary Clinton. She bought and paid for the dossier, and that dossier was corroborated by a longtime Clinton ally,” said Sean.

GRASSLEY UNCHAINED: Chuck Grassley FIRES OFF FURIOUS Letter to Rod Rosenstein
Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley released a fiery letter aimed at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Wednesday, demanding answers over allegations of widespread abuse and anti-Trump bias throughout the Department of Justice.
Grassley’s letter cited numerous examples of recent scandals surrounding Robert Mueller’s botched probe into allegations of Russian-Trump collusion throughout the 2016 campaign; slamming reports that senior FBI agents exchanged Trump-bashing text messages during the investigation.
“Some of these texts appear to go beyond merely expressing a private political opinion, and appear to cross the line into taking some official action to create an ‘insurance policy’ against a Trump presidency,” he writes.
“Any improper political influence or motives in the course of any FBI investigation must be brought to light and fully addressed,” he adds. “What steps have you taken to determine whether Mr. Strzok, Mr. Page, and Mr. McCabe should face disciplinary action for their conduct?”
The chorus of GOP legislators calling for Robert Mueller’s removal grew this week, after bombshell reports revealed rampant anti-Trump behavior throughout the special counsel’s office.

HANNITY: Rod Rosenstein 'Aiding and Abetting' Mueller's Anti-Trump Witch Hunt
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean blasted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for refusing to acknowledge the “mountain of evidence” showing blatant, anti-Trump bias throughout the Department of Justice.
“The fall-out continues over new examples of political bias, one after another, coming from the Department of Justice, the FBI, and Robert Mueller’s merry band of Democratic donors,” said Sean.
“massive conflicts of interest and political prejudice”
“The massive conflicts of interest, the political prejudice being exposed in America’s justice system has Republican lawmakers finally waking up and demanding answers,” he added. “GOP congressman, they wasted little-time today in questioning the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.”
“Despite today’s grilling, Rosenstein remains defiant, defending Mueller and his team of Clinton-lovers and Trump-haters,” Hannity said. “There’s a mountain of evidence now showing this bias among Mueller’s investigators, yet Rosenstein pretends he’s the only person in America that doesn’t see it.”
“This is a direct threat to the rule of law in this country. Rosenstein is aiding and abetting that threat. If he had any sort of moral compass he would shut down Mueller’s corrupt witch hunt immediately,” he added.
