Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean weighed-in on the Attorney General’s fiery defense of President Trump; saying it seems he has found “serious abuse of power” violations in his Russia-origin probe.
“We have a brand new speech from Attorney General Bill Barr… It’s sending shockwaves through the swamp,” said Hannity. “Make no mistake, this is a preview of coming attractions. It sounds clear to me that he has discovered serious abuse of power into his investigation into the origins of the Russia Witch Hunt.”
“The Attorney General fully understands what is a clear-and-present danger to this country. We did have real corruption, there was real abuse of power,” he added.

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.

President Trump responded to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s invitation to appear before the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry Monday; saying he’ll “strongly consider” the option in “order to get Congress focused again.”
“Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?) Speaker of the House, Nervous Nancy Pelosi, who is petrified by her Radical Left knowing she will soon be gone (they & Fake News Media are her BOSS), suggested on Sunday’s DEFACE THE NATION that I testify about the phony Impeachment Witch Hunt. She also said I could do it in writing. Even though I did nothing wrong, and don’t like giving credibility to this No Due Process Hoax, I like the idea & will, in order to get Congress focused again, strongly consider it!” posted Trump on social media.
