Judge Jeanine Applauds McCabe's Firing: He 'Should Have Been Taken Out in Cuffs'

Sean Hannity said Monday he expects to see criminal charges brought against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired Friday night just before he was to receive his pension.

In an appearance on "Fox & Friends," Hannity said "serious crimes" at the top levels of the Justice Department and FBI need to be investigated and questions must be answered - including why Hillary Clinton was not indicted over her private email server.

"It is the biggest abuse of power in the history of this country," said Hannity, adding that Clinton and her campaign are the ones who colluded with Russia by "buying Russian lies" in the form of the so-called Steele dossier.

Hannity said he believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller is coming to the end of his investigation and said the talk of President Trump trying to remove Mueller is "fake news."

After McCabe's firing, his former boss, James Comey, took to Twitter to offer a defense, touting that "the American people will hear [his] story soon."

Hannity said that Comey, whose book will be released next month, still has a lot of questions to answer about the Clinton investigation and the use of the dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant against Carter Page. 

McCabe called his firing an “attack on my credibility" and "part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally.”
