Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean weighed-in on recent revelations that Robert Mueller’s “Pitbull” Andrew Weissmann was in charge of hiring at the special counsel’s office; saying “now we know why” his team was filled with “far-left” Democrats.
“Documents obtained by Judicial Watch show the Pitbull of Robert Mueller, Andrew Weissmann was tapped by Robert Mueller to lead the entire hiring effort for the special counsel’s witch hunt. Now we know why Mueller’s team was filled with far-left Clinton allies and zero Republican donors,” said Hannity.
“The same partisan hack that donated thousands to Democrats, the same guy known for withholding evidence… Why did Mueller hire this guy?” he asked.
The news comes days after Attorney General William Barr refused to speak with Congressional Democrats regarding Robert Mueller’s “no collusion” conclusion, with top GOP lawmakers saying the investigation “is over.”
Barr reportedly met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi face-to-face Wednesday during an event at the Capitol; asking the top Democrat if she “brought her handcuffs” after accusing the senior Trump official of breaking the law just days ago.
“Colleague Jake Gibson rpts AG Barr spoke to Pelosi in person today, after the National Peace Officers Memorial Service at the Capitol. Source says Barr went up to Pelosi & asked her if she brought her handcuffs,” reported a journalist from Fox News.

“What is deadly serious about it is the attorney general of the United States of America was not telling the truth to the Congress of the United States,” Pelosi told reporters earlier this month. “That’s a crime.”
The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold the Attorney General in contempt last week after Barr refused to meet with Democrats to further discuss Robert Mueller’s “no collusion” final report.
“We will have no choice but to move quickly to hold the attorney general in contempt if he stalls or fails to negotiate in good faith,” Mr. Nadler said. “But the attorney general must make a choice. Every one of us must make the same choice. That choice is now an obligation of our office.”
“The choice is simple: We can stand up to this president in defense of the country and the Constitution we love, or we can let the moment pass us by,” he added.
