Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on the Attorney General’s recent decision to appoint a US attorney to investigate the shady origins of the Russia probe; saying the Deep State is now in ‘deep trouble.’


“The Deep State is in even more deep trouble. A US attorney has been appointed to investigate the origins of the Russia probe. This is huge news. This is the boomerang we’ve been talking about… The Russian hoax is now in the rearview mirror, Mueller[‘s investigation] is over,” said Hannity “Anything you hear going forward – that is only noise.”

“Their conspiracies about Russia [are] not even on life support at this time. It’s dead, it’s buried, and it’s not coming back,” he added.

Attorney General William Barr appointed a US attorney Monday night to investigate the shady origins of the Russia-Trump collusion probe and whether the DOJ acted “properly” while surveilling the Trump campaign heading into the 2016 election.

“Fox News reported on Monday that Attorney General Bill Barr had assigned John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to conduct the inquiry into alleged misconduct and alleged improper government surveillance on the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election, as well as whether Democrats were the ones who improperly colluded with foreign actors,” reports Fox News.

“I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted in the summer of 2016,” Barr testified on April 9.

“The FBI’s July 2016 counterintelligence investigation was opened by former senior agent Peter Strzok. Former FBI counsel Lisa Page, with whom Strzok was romantically involved, revealed during a closed-door congressional interview that the FBI ‘knew so little’ about whether allegations against the Trump campaign were ‘true or not true,’ at the time that they opened the probe, noting that they had just ‘a paucity of evidence because we are just starting down the path’ of vetting the allegations,” adds the report.
