Hannity on New FBI Revelations: 'Powerful People' Must Be Investigated, Indicted & Probably 'Thrown in Jail'
In his opening monologue Tuesday night, Sean Hannity said new revelations about anti-Trump bias at the Justice Department and FBI mean "powerful people" need to be investigated, indicted and probably "thrown in jail."
He pointed to anti-Trump text messages exchanged by top FBI officials affiliated with Robert Mueller's Russia probe, which referenced a "secret society" and an "insurance policy" in case Trump won the presidency.
He added that the FBI “failed to preserve” five crucial months of texts between top counterintelligence official Peter Strzok and senior FBI lawyer Lisa Page.
"Given the inherent anti-Trump bias that we have seen from Strzok and Page -- they hated Trump -- and their involvement in almost everything involving the Russia investigation, we must now know what they were talking about during these five critical months," Hannity said. "The FBI should find those messages."
He said he expects some "obstruction of justice" at the DOJ and the FBI, similar to how Hillary Clinton was "protected" from prosecution by top-ranking officials during her email probe.
He also noted that Republican lawmakers are calling for the release of a memo that allegedly shows “troubling” U.S. government FISA surveillance abuses, reportedly involving spying on members of the Trump campaign and transition.
"The Obama administration weaponized the powerful tools of intelligence that we need to keep our country safe, but in this case, they used it to target members of the Trump campaign," Hannity said, calling this scandal "so much bigger than Watergate."
"It’s about our Constitution, about the rule of law. It has been shredded, all because powerful people at the highest level in the DOJ and the FBI thought they knew better than you as to who should be president. There needs to be serious ramifications if we are going to save our country in all of this. People must be held accountable, they must be investigated, they must be indicted and probably many of them thrown in jail."
