Sean Hannity said in his opening monologue Wednesday that the media smells "blood in the water" after the conviction of Paul Manafort and the guilty plea by Michael Cohen. 

He played a series of clips of the past day's news coverage in which talk of President Trump's impeachment was prominent. 

"Today, the Trump presidency took a giant step toward impeachment," MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell declared Tuesday night.  

Hannity said Americans will render their verdict on the president and the media's coverage in a few months in the midterm elections.

Hannity called the mainstream media "crisis peddlers" who have predicted Trump's impeachment over and over since he took office.

"They're all predicting the same thing, because it's what they're hoping for. This is their shot. ... They sense there's blood in the water. They're harmoniously working together and most of them would love the impeachment of the president you voted for and to stop the progress, ruin his agenda," he said. 

Hannity said it's clear at this point that Democrats will impeach Trump if they take back control of Congress.

"Don't tell me the morning after the election that you didn't know what they would do."
