In my 15 years with the Sean Hannity Show, I have seen some of the most wonderful, amazing and truly incredible efforts by our listeners and viewers to help their fellow man. Unfortunately, I have seen the other side as well, a side where good men go to prison, while pompous and arrogant elitist spread ‘fake news.’
Today, I am reaching out to our audience to alert you to a tragic miscarriage of justice. Army First Lieutenant Clint Lorance is sitting in Fort Leavenworth for a crime he did not commit. He is innocent, and after dedicating his life to this great country we have repaid him with a brown uniform and a jail cell.
Clint’s story has been widely reported, following the attack on July 2, 2012 in Afghanistan on his platoon. Like so many of our officers, Lorance and his platoon served under Barack Obama’s rules of engagement (ROE). These ROE were nothing but handcuffs for the brave men and women who were unfortunate enough to serve our nation during his tenure.
Clint’s situation has taken a turn for the worse with Brigadier General Berger, the Chief Judge of the Army Court of Criminal Appeals, who has the authority to oversee his case. Berger spoke out of turn against Clint, betraying his uniform and the people of this nation with the lies he has told about an innocent man.
Berger took to the stage to speak at CSIS where he proceeded to defame Lorance and lie about his actions while in Afghanistan. He was abusive and cruel with the words he ascribed to him, but further and most importantly, he LIED. Clint’s attorneys informed General Berger that his accusations were factually incorrect. Berger at first seemed eager to remedy his actions. But instead, he has chosen to allow that lie to live on and has not yet corrected the record.
One of Clint’s attorney’s Don Brown has written a book about the trials and tribulations of Clint’s case (Travesty Of Justice: The Shocking Prosecution of Lt. Clint Lorance) and has an entire chapter on General Berger; the salient points related to this article are here:
Now, we are bringing General Berger’s actions to the forefront. How can a man lying to hundreds of people about Clint’s ‘crimes’ be expected to rule fairly in his case? How can a man who is accusing Clint of crimes that he was acquitted of by a jury of his peers, be trusted to protect our nation and the men and women who serve it? I tell you this, I want Clint Lorance freed, but I also want General Berger held accountable for his disgusting behavior.
JARRETT ON HANNITY: Feds Believe Michael Avenatti the ‘Bernie Madoff of Lawyers’
Fox News’ Gregg Jarrett stopped by ‘Hannity’ Thursday night to weigh-in on recent charges against celebrity lawyer Michael Avenatti; saying the attorney better “throw away the Armani suits and get used to a jumpsuit” if federal allegations are proven true.
“He deserves the presumption of innocence and due process,” said Hannity.
“Absolutely he does. I’ve read through the 61-page indictment, if the Feds can prove just a fraction of this then Avenatti better throw away the Armani suits and get used to a jumpsuit. The Feds say he was essentially the Bernie Madoff of lawyers… The pyramid eventually just came crashing down around him,” added Jarrett.

JARRETT ON HANNITY: Hillary Clinton’s Obstruction ‘Hypocrisy’ is Absolutely ‘Breathtaking’
Fox News’ contributor and best-selling author Gregg Jarrett stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to comment on Hillary Clinton’s “breathtaking hypocrisy,” saying the former Secretary of State is the “queen of obstruction of justice.”
“We always knew that Hillary Clinton was a lousy candidate. Now we know she’s a lousy lawyer. There’s no legal basis for obstruction of justice. The hypocrisy is breathtaking. She’s the queen of obstruction of justice,” said Jarrett.
“If she were smart, and she’s not, she’d put a sock in it. Criticizing the Attorney General who holds her fate in his hands is really unwise,” he added.
