Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean called-out the destroy-Trump media for trying to hide the facts over Andrew McCabe’s recent removal; saying Americans are catching on to the ‘Deep State’ and their defenders.
“The Deep State is real in America, and the American people see what’s really going on,” said Hannity. “According to a new poll 74% of the American people think this group of un-elected bureaucrats are secretly trying to manipulate policy.”
“We now have a ton of examples that prove you are, in fact, right,” he added.
“The [mainstream media] is trying to claim that President Trump fired former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe… President Trump did not fire Andrew McCabe. The FBI fired Andrew McCabe based on their investigation,” said Hannity.
“If the media had their way, McCabe would still have the number two job at the FBI. Most FBI people don’t want him to have that job,” he added.

DEEP STATE DEPARTMENT: John Kerry BRIEFED on ‘Trump Dossier’ in 2016
Former Secretary of State John Kerry was reportedly briefed on the infamous ‘Trump Dossier’ in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, raising new and alarming questions over the relationship between former British spy Christopher Steele and the Obama administration as Americans headed to the polls.
According to the Washington Post, John Kerry was the last senior Obama official to review the salacious material in “late 2016,” adding that “It’s not uncommon for private consulting or intelligence reports to be consumed by State Department officials.”
“There’s nothing nefarious about the State Department accepting material from Steele from 2014 to 2016,” writes the Post. “At that time, he was a well-respected former intelligence official from an allied country with deep experience in Russia. Officials couldn’t have known that Steele would become controversial for reporting on Trump, because that hadn’t happened yet.”
The left-leaning newspaper was commenting on a recent report from the Washington Examiner detailing the relationship between Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele, and the Trump Dossier to former President Barack Obama’s State Department.
“They’re also seeking to learn what individual State Department officials did in relation to Steele, and whether there were any contacts between the State Department and the FBI or Justice Department concerning the anti-Trump material,” wrote the Examiner.
ADAM’S ADMISSION: Schiff ADMITS McCabe’s FIRING ‘May Be Justified’
Ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff acknowledged Sunday that Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to suddenly fire FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe “may be justified,” seconds before calling the move “tainted.”
Schiff was speaking with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos when he was asked to comment on Sessions’ abrupt removal of the senior FBI official just days before he was due to retire.
“On Andrew McCabe, does the fact that the Inspector General did find that he lacked candor in some of his responses, and that his firing was recommended by career FBI officials. Does that suggest that his firing was or may be justified?” asked Stephanopoulos.
“His firing may be justified, there’s no way for us to know at this point,” admitted Schiff. “Even though it may have been justified, it can also be tainted.”
“I think the President badgering his Attorney General, his urging that he be fired before his pension could vest, and the fact that McCabe and every other Comey associates […] every one of them has been targeted by the administration,” he added.
