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.

MUELLER'S MAN: Michael Flynn CHARGED with Lying to FBI
Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn will be charged with lying to the FBI on Friday; making the former White House official the latest target of special counsel Robert Mueller’s months-long investigation into allegations of Russian “meddling” in the 2016 presidential election.
According to Fox News, Flynn will be charged with one count of “willfully and knowingly” making false statements to the FBI, and will enter his plea Friday morning at approximately 10:30am.
The comments in question relate to Flynn’s “false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements” to the bureau regarding his conversations with the Russian ambassador in the run-up to President Trump’s inauguration.
The charges make Flynn the latest target of the ongoing special counsel investigation.
Last month, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his aide Rick Gates were indicted by Mueller’s probe; both men pleaded not guilty.

COMEY GETS BIBLICAL: Comey Quotes Scripture Following Flynn Plea
Former Director of the FBI James Comey quoted scripture on social media Friday, referencing a biblical passage about “justice” and “righteousness” minutes after former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI.
Comey didn’t mention Flynn by name, but the timing of his tweet suggests the former FBI chief approved of special counsel Robert Mueller’s decision to press charges against the senior Trump aide.
“But justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream” Amos 5:24,” posted Comey.

James Comey plays a central role on Mueller’s ongoing probe into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 general election.
The special counsel was initially appointed after Attorney General Sessions recused himself from the investigation, but was initially sparked after President Trump fired Comey over his “poor” handling of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
Friday morning, Flynn pleaded guilty to charges of “willfully and intentionally making false statements” to the FBI regarding private conversations he had with the Russian ambassador in the run-up to President Trump’s inauguration.
