Hannity: Russia Allegations “Boomeranging Back” At Democrats


Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity said Monday night that the ongoing controversy over alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election campaign had rebounded towards the Democrats and "opened the door for their own investigations and real trouble" for the former Obama administration. In his opening monologue, he said "the real colluders are the ones who have been claiming collusion." "The real fault for Russia's election interference now falls – guess what? – at the feet of former President Obama," Hannity added. "The real crimes were committed, in fact, by Hillary Clinton. The real obstructer of justice is the former attorney general, Loretta Lynch … And the real corrupt collusion is the relationship between the former FBI director, James Comey, and … the special counsel Robert Mueller," he continued. "If President Obama knew what Russia was doing back in August of 2016, why didn't he act?" Hannity asked. "The answer, we now know, is simple … The president didn't do any investigation because he actually thought Hillary [Clinton] was going to win. In other words, let me translate here, the only reason Russian interference and the story is a big deal, is because Donald Trump won… That's what the special counsel needs to be investigating tonight," the host went on. "Real collusion: Obama this time defending Hillary, colluding so she'd win and not rocking the boat."

Conway: Special Election Victories “Reaffirmation” Of Public Support For Trump


SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS: The agenda — I know a lot of conservatives are getting antsy, not at the president, the Congress's slow pace, like me. I'm — I'm, like, Move! Let's go! Keep up to Trump! KELLYANNE CONWAY, TRUMP SENIOR COUNSELOR: Donald Trump, and Washington is not used to Donald Trump. He's a disrupter. He's a businessman. And they're used to negotiating, making deals and doing things very quickly. Look, I think that Donald Trump has proven, particularly through these special elections, now 4 for 4, that this isn't just a referendum or his agenda. This is a reaffirmation, that many Americans are watching what he's doing, getting health care through the House and the in short order getting it through the Senate, creating jobs. Look at how the markets have reacted to President Trump. The stock market, the NASDAQ, the Dow Jones, the S&P, all these confidence measures, the $4 trillion in wealth that's been created. People are spending their money again. What does all that mean? It means that they'll be confident when they see his health care plan. People know "Obama care" is broken. And what Leader McConnell and the Senate have done is he is putting together a plan that he knows rips out "Obama care" branch and root. And let's remind people why this is being done. This is not being done to keep a campaign promise. This is an imperative. It's a moral imperative to those millions of Americans, Sean, who thought they would get better health care through "Obama care" and who have been left behind. I sat in a listening session with a number of them today in the White House. They tell you their stories, and you can't- believe…

Hannity: “Soft Coup” Against Trump; “Mission Creep” By Mueller”


SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS: Tonight, a soft coup is under way right here in the United States of America in an attempt to overturn November's election results and forcibly remove a duly elected president from office, sinister forces quickly aligning in what is becoming now, in my mind, a clear and present danger. That is tonight's very "Opening Monologue." All right, so if you're in America, we're at a turning point tonight with forces now forming an alliance to try and remove President Trump from office. It's that serious. Now, here are the five dangers we are facing, especially the president. One, you've got the destroy Trump media that has been lying to you now — provable lies — for 11 months nonstop. Trump-Russia collusion, black helicopter theories, no evidence whatsoever. Two, you've got what I've been calling the deep state selectively leaking information to damage the president and anyone associated with him. Three, special counsel Mueller's investigation mission creep I've been telling you about. Well, it's now turned into an out-of-control what is a political witch hunt. It needs to be stopped. Four, all this manufactured turmoil putting President Trump's agenda in jeopardy, which ends up directly impacting every one of you out there, the American people. And five, this effort to override the will of the American people, change the results of a presidential election, is now creating a national security crisis. America is now suffering from a massive informational crisis because, I call them the destroy Trump media, has routinely been exposed now, agenda-driven propagandists more than happy to push debunked tinfoil hat conspiracy theories. For example, the media relentlessly peddling one of the biggest lies in American history, that is that the president colluded with the Russians. Now, that's because members of the media are nothing more than left-wing ideologues pretending to be journalists. Remember, they're the ones that colluded with Hillary Clinton, exposed by WikiLeaks in the 2016 election. The media has one clear shared goal in mind, and that is to damage, stop and destroy Trump's presidency, sadly, it appears, by any means necessary. We have been highlighting right here on this program night after night just how unhinged these people have become. And they don't care about facts. Obviously, they don't care about the truth, which is why The Washington Post, The New York Times, ABC, NBC, CNN, all exposed as having gotten their reporting wrong. But the destroy Trump media, they're not the only ones whose collusion narrative, by the way, has completely crumbled. Take a list at the long list of Democrats admitting no evidence of collusion, zero, zip! Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) REP. ADAM SCHIFF, D-CALIF., "THIS WEEK"/ABC, JUNE 18: Well, you know, the allegation, of course, is that the Russians and the hacking and dumping of documents in the election had essentially relationships with Trump campaign people… but I'm not prepared to say that there's proof you could take to a jury. GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, "THIS WEEK"/ABC, JUNE 11: Do you agree with this conclusion that the president has reached that there was no evidence of collusion? SEN. JOE MANCHIN, D-W.VA.: You know, we haven't seen any of that whatsoever, George. We've been looking and showing (ph) everything that they possibly have. That has not led to that. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: The next threat, and perhaps the most dangerous, the deep state. That is the unelected –what I call the fourth branch of government — consisting of a lot of Obama holdovers, anti-Trump bureaucrats who now are routinely targeting the president, his administration with selective leaking to hurt him. Now, this deep state works closely with the destroy-Trump media to disseminate false information about the president and his administration. And what's even more dangerous, more sinister about the deep state is that they're willing to break the law, leaking classified information like in the case of General Flynn. Then you have the former FBI Director James Comey, admitting under oath he had his memo leaked to The New York Times. He had a goal. He wanted the appointment of a special counsel. And a prime example is the unmasking of General Flynn. That was a violation of the Espionage Act. That's a crime. That's a felony, by the way. And then Flynn's Fourth Amendment rights, by the way, totally trampled on. You've heard nothing about it. There's no investigation there. Why? Again, the deep state, they don't care. They're only concerned with taking down President Trump and President Trump's associates. Then you've got number three, the special counsel. Look at Mueller's investigation mission creep. Remember? President Trump has called this the greatest political witch hunt in American history? Well, I'm here to tell you the president is right. Mueller's sole purpose was to investigate so-called Trump-Russia collusion, but Mueller is now expanding that investigation, and he's digging into finances and Jared Kushner and obstruction of justice. And guess what? He's not going to stop there. Why? Because there is no Trump-Russia collusion, so he has to move on to other things. And I'll tell you what's most alarming about this. Mueller is having massive conflicts of interest. He should recuse himself. He's incapable of carrying out a fair and impartial investigation. Now, Mueller needs to end this witch hunt right now. He's best friends with James Comey. The two have been best friends for a long time. And who do you think Mueller is going to side with when it comes to the president and his word versus James Comey's word? That's pretty obvious, pretty unfair. And then there's the fact that members of Mueller's investigative team, the lawyers he's hiring — they've all, many of them donated big, big bucks to, let's see, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton. And on top of that, perhaps most sinister, one of the lawyers Mueller has hired actually was Clinton's attorney at the Clinton Foundation, defending the Clinton Foundation against getting you information and preventing Freedom of Information Act requests! Oh, isn't that great about the foundation? Now, imagine for a second — just stand back — if Republicans ever tried to pull anything like this? You know, let's hire Donald Trump's lawyer to investigate President Hillary Clinton. The left-wing outrage would be like nothing you've ever seen before. If Mueller wants to investigate actual crimes, actual collusion, by the way, a real conspiracy Donald Trump or real conspiracy with Russia, maybe he should focus attention on other things. Let's start with Loretta Lynch. Let's start with the Clintons. James Comey testified that Lynch influenced his investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server. Is that not that textbook definition of obstruction of justice? And if Democrats and the media want to talk about collusion, well, we can talk about collusion. You know, was it wrong for Loretta Lynch to meet Bill Clinton on the tarmac or to convince James Comey not to say investigation, but a matter? Or as Sara Carter and John Solomon have reported, was it wrong when she reported that Comey confronted her as having been in the tank for Hillary all along and put the kibosh on any indictment? What about when serving as secretary of state? Hillary Clinton handed over 20 percent of America's uranium to who? Oh, Vladimir Putin, the Russians, the corrupt Uranium One deal! And while people involved in that deal donating, kicking back big dollars, millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, her husband doubling his speaking fees in Moscow. All this manufactured turmoil from the left, the Democrats, destroy Trump media, the deep state, is creating a completely dysfunctional environment in Washington and for the country. And you, the American people, you're the ones suffering because these forces are slowing down what you voted for. A president enacting the agenda he promised, means fewer jobs, less economic growth, no border wall, no tax reform, no repealing, replacing ObamaCare, no getting people out of poverty, off of food stamps, back in the labor force, buying homes at a 51-year low. The longer these attacks continue, the longer it will take for you, the American people, to benefit from what from what you voted for, the president's policies and agenda. And all of this is now creating a very clear, present danger to the country. The left is suffering well beyond Trump derangement syndrome. It's completely unhinged. Look at how vile some of their rhetoric has been. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) MADONNA, SINGER, JAN. 21: Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House! PROTESTERS, ST. PAUL, MINN., AUG. 29, 2015: Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon! Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon! PROTESTERS, DEC. 13, 2014: What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now! THEN-SEN. BARACK OBAMA, D-ILL, AUG. 5, 2008: I'll put Mr. Burgess up against Sean Hannity. He'll tear him up. JOSEPH BIDEN, FMR. VICE PRESIDENT, OCT. 21, 2016: The press always asks me, Don't I wish I were debating him? No, I wish we were in high school, could take him behind the gym! STEPHEN COLBERT, HOST, "THE LATE SHOW"/CBS, MAY 5: I think the more most accurate football metaphor might have been the GOP just kicked America in the balls. Thank you. RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC HOST, "THE LATE SHOW"/CBS, MAY 2: Is a weird tension. I think what's a dangerous time for the First Amendment and for the free press in his country and at the same time, we're oddly influential with the guy who wants to kill us. ROBERT DE NIRO, ACTOR, "THE VIEW"/ABC, FEB. 3: How dare he say that to the crowd? How dare he say the things he does? Of course I want to punch him in the face. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: You want to punch the president in the face and Madonna dreaming of blowing of the White House? Now, think about this. Now we have severed heads, Trump look-alikes in an ISIS pose. Now we have assassination lists in Alexandria, Virginia, and Republicans targeted for assassination. You don't think that's insanity? You don't think the left, their deranged hate and rhetoric — you don't think that this could ever be reconciled with, for example, some of the actions that's happening here. This is now reaching a point of no return. It's beyond serious. If these forces are successful, this country will not survive. If they continue with lies, propaganda, misinformation and outright conspiracy theories, where do the people go to get their country back? And why don't they go after the people that we know committed actual crimes? Why aren't they investigating Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, the deep state, the leaks that have been coming out, all illegal? Why are they going after only President Trump? Now, by the way, just so you know, this isn't about just President Trump. This isn't about just people around the president. This is more deeply about you, the American people. You know, it's a big middle finger right in your face. You know, these people don't care about you, Mueller, Rosenstein, Comey, deep state, destroy-Trump media, weak Republicans. They aren't acting on your behalf. They don't seem to care how all of this is impacting you, your families, those of you out of work, in poverty, you know, on food stamps, those of you out of the labor force, 95 million of you. You know what? They think they're smarter than you. They know better than you. It's not about you to them. It's not about what you want. This is about what they want. If you're sick and tired of it, I think you should let your congressmen and women know. I think you should look at the media tonight and ask, Are they telling you the truth anymore? We're at a turning point. You, the American people, have a profound choice to make here. You can let this continue to happen, watch the country descend into chaos, you can sit back, or you can stand up and fight for what you voted for back in November and the agenda that you want implemented in this country.

Mark Levin Rips Mueller: President Trump “Not Only Didn’t Obstruct Justice, He Can’t Obstruct Justice”


On Hannity, Mark Levin explained the separation of powers bars the president of the United States from being charged with obstruction of justice. Watch Levin deliver a fiery explanation of why Donald Trump not only did not obstruct justice, but why as president of the United States can't obstruct justice. "Now, you and I know and anybody with any competence knows that the president of the United States not only didn't obstruct justice, he can't obstruct justice. That aside, this has been a debate for weeks, obstructing justice, well, will Mueller investigate him? Mueller has been investigating him, that's not the question, that's media insanity," Levin said. "I want to be clear, we ought to get off obstruction and the issue should be Mr. Mueller, what is your authority for investigating the president of the United States as a criminal matter?" Levin asked. "We'd like to know what is because right now if that's your intention, I'm not saying he's doing it, we don't know." "You are violating Department of Justice policy that is 44 years in place," Levin told Mueller. Levin said the investigation helmed by Mueller is violating the separation of powers and preventing President Trump from executing his duties as head of the executive branch and commander in chief. "You cannot have a prosecutor who is responsible to nobody digging into the background, charging a president of the United States, debilitating his presidency, making it impossible for him to focus on his constitutional responsibilities, domestic and foreign," Levin told viewers. From Tuesday's broadcast of Hannity on the FOX News Channel: SEAN HANNITY: Let's talk about what you found here, this is profound to me. MARK LEVIN: Let's talk about this, because we've had a debate the last several weeks as a result of the Jim Comey illegal leak through his law professor buddy to The New York Times that the suggestion is that Donald Trump obstructed justice. Now, you and I know and anybody with any competence knows that the president of the United States not only didn't obstruct justice, he can't obstruct justice. That aside, this has been a debate for weeks, obstructing justice, well, will Mueller investigate him? Mueller has been investigating him, that's not the question, that's media insanity. The issue is why would Mueller investigate a sitting president at all as a criminal matter? Because it's been the position of the United States Department of Justice under Republicans and Democrats and in a 1973 memorandum and in October memorandum under the Clinton administration that you must not, cannot indict a sitting president, not that this president would be, that's not that my point. As a matter of constitutional interpretation, for 44 years that's been the position of the Department of Justice. We've had law professors, homeless people, would-be law professors all over TV and radio talking about obstruction of justice. We've had media types talking about it. We've had members of Congress talking about it. It doesn't matter, the official position of the Justice Department is we don't charge a sitting president with a crime. Now, you don't have to trust me, here's part of the memo, this memo was written October 16th, 2000. And it incorporates writings from the 1973 memorandum. The OLC, the Office of Legal Counsel which advises the president and the Attorney General on constitutional issues. At one time it was headed by William Rehnquist, who had been Chief Justice and at one time Antonin Scalia. That's how important this office is. The OLC memorandum in 1973 proceeded to this issue: 'Examining whether criminal proceedings against a sitting president should be barred by the doctrine of separation of powers.' What they concluded is it is barred by the doctrine of separation of powers. And here's the reason. there's only one person who runs the executive branch, who is the commander-in-chief: the President of the United States. It's not like Congress, we have 435 members of the House, we have 100 members of the Senate, or the courts where there's a thousand federal judges and so forth, the president is it. One national election, one president. Specific duties under Article One of the Constitution of the United States. What they explained in the two memoranda is this. You cannot have a prosecutor who is responsible to nobody digging into the background, charging a president of the United States, debilitating his presidency, making it impossible for him to focus on his constitutional responsibilities, domestic and foreign. You cannot have a judge and a jury determining whether an election is going to be reversed. You cannot have average citizens, yes I said average citizens, 12 citizens sitting as they typically would in an average case involving an average other citizen defendant, that's not this case. It's the president of the United States and the framers of the constitution set up a completely separate system for him or her called the impeachment process, we're not get into that now. Now, what they said is that it's quite clear that if a president of the United States has to spend time defending himself, if a president has to spend time going to trial, being deposed, if the president has to spend time protecting himself then it damages, it handicaps one of the branches of the federal government and thereby destroys separation of powers. This is the position of the Department of Justice. Now, why does that matter? Because Mr. Mueller is not an independent agent, they can call them independent, special prosecutor, they can call him a kumquat, it doesn't much matter. The fact of the matter is the rules and regulations that apply at the Department of Justice to all prosecutors apply to Mr. Mueller. The fact that Jim Comey leaked his memo, tried to push and obstruction of justice scenario and pressed for a special counsel, which he got. His dear, long time good friend Robert Mueller, doesn't change the fact… MARK LEVIN: I want to be clear, we ought to get off obstruction and the issue should be Mr. Mueller, what is your authority for investigating the president of the United States as a criminal matter? We'd like to know what is because right now if that's your intention, I'm not saying he's doing it, we don't know. You are violating Department of Justice policy that is 44 years in place. And for the liberal lawyers and media types who are going to debate the memo, they can debate it all they want, that's the Department of Justice policy whether they like it or not.

Hannity Rips “Deep State”: “Unelected Fourth Branch Of Government Looking For Retribution”


Sean Hannity delivers a monologue on the 'deep state' on the Friday edition of his FOX News Channel show: "The unelected fourth branch of government is now being aided and abetted by the destroy Trump media, all in a massive effort to damage and destroy President Trump." SEAN HANNITY, FOX NEWS HOST: But first, the unelected fourth branch of government, the deep state, is trying to overturn the results of November's election and throw this president out of office! So how did a bunch of unelected bureaucrats get so much power, feel so emboldened that think they can undermine a duly elected president of the United States and just take over? Plus, after this week's left-wing assassination attempt on Republican lawmakers, the left's come together kumbaya moment, like I said last night, is nothing more than an illusion. It is a farce to hide the left's true intentions. We will expose all of this hypocrisy in tonight's very important "Opening Monologue." All right, so the unelected fourth branch of government is now being aided and abetted by the destroy Trump media, all in a massive effort to damage and destroy President Trump. Now, this week alone, we have seen unprecedented and potentially criminal leaks from the deep state to the liberal Washington Post. Now, the liberal smear machine is masquerading as a news outlet in their reporting, citing, of course, once again anonymous sources that the special counsel is investigating the president for possible obstruction of justice and that Robert Mueller is also looking into Jared Kushner's finances and business dealings. OK, how is it possible that they dare to leak information almost every single day without any fear of consequences? And by the way, they're wrong so often. Present Trump responding to that report today, tweeting, quote, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director. That's a witch hung." Now, the president, of course, is referring to the deputy attorney general, Rosenstein, who in a two-page memo laid out the strongest case on why Comey need to be fired. Now Rosenstein — now he wants an investigation by the special counsel to investigate why the president fired Comey and whether or not this was the right thing to do! This is insanity! And by the way, the special counsel now has 13 attorneys. And on top of that, including Hillary Clinton's attorney and multiple attorneys that donated to both Obama and Hillary Clinton. Now, predictably, the destroy Trump media — they're jumping all over this. They are, of course, hoping that it will lead to President Trump's downfall. Let me remind you the Washington Post, ABC News, The New York Times, CNN, NBC — they have all gotten it wrong on this issue. They all at this point with the American public should have zero credibility. So we have to take these latest so-called smoking gun reports come out late night every night with a grain of salt. Last night, the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein — he issued this statement about trusting these stories about the, quote (ph), coming out of the fake news media. He said this. He said, "Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to, quote (ph), anonymous officials, particularly when they do not identify the country, let along the branch or the agency of government with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated. Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations." Now, the Department of Justice has a long established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations. You know what? I don't trust that (ph) either, at this point. On top of that, James Comey — remember, he testified last week the media has been so dead wrong when it comes to stories about Russia. And by the way, while all that is alarming, it proves everything we have been saying on this program. This deep state, this fourth branch of government, as we're calling it, doesn't care about getting the truth to you, the American people. And of course, the media — they're the willing accomplices. Their goal is the exact opposite here. They are selectively leaking information, intelligence information that is meant to damage, in this case, the president of United States of America, which is exactly what we have been seeing now almost on a nightly basis. Here's a perfect example. James Comey told President Trump he wasn't under investigation. Somehow, that's the only one thing that never got leaked to the press. Why? The reason should be obvious. And what's worse is the growing targets for the deep state. They've been successful in totally slowing down the president's agenda, Congress's agenda. Now, so far, they haven't been able to stop him, which means the deep state is now going after anyone who's even close to the president, including his family and White House advisers, and by the way, even people in the media. The deep state now plans to create as much collateral damage as possible, targeting everyone and everyone (sic) from the president straight on down. So what we're seeing now is this unelected fourth branch of government looking for retribution, overturning a duly elected election. (sic) And by the way, they're not going to stop until this president is either stopped or thrown out of office. Here's the problem. Whoever is leaking this information to the media — they need to be arrested. They need to be prosecuted. Every one of them needs to be put in jail. Why hasn't every Obama holdover been fired? Why have the leakers, you know, not been discovered and arrested at this point? Now, these people have now become a clear and present danger to this country and to you and the things that you care about deeply. Now, because these people now have, of course, done this to the country, well, that raises a lot of questions. Of course, now we have the left and their vicious and vile daily hatred that is now tearing this country apart and creating a climate where what we saw last week is now in some ways even encouraged by some. Now, last night's so-called show of unity — remember, I'm not falling for it, the kumbaya moment at the congressional baseball game. It was nothing more than an illusion. Now, this week's left-wing assassination attempt on these Republican lawmakers is the culmination of endless vitriolic rage, animus, hatred towards the president and Republicans. I'm not saying anybody but this individual is responsible, but this atmosphere is so unhealthy. And those that are unhealthy — are they susceptible to potential influence of daily lies, misinformation, conspiracy theories? Remember this stunning video from this week. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (EXPLETIVE DELETED) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do we know where he's at? UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What? UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do we know where he's at? (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Now, after everything that we have seen, can anyone say that they're surprised that a left-wing lunatic went on a shooting rampage? For example, just this week, an opening night performance, Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, New York City, or course, featured a Donald Trump lookalike getting what? Savagely murdered. Then of course, this most graphic example that we always warn you about before putting it up on he screen, Kathy Griffin, CNN host, posing like an ISIS fighter with a fake and bloody and severed head of President Trump. And that's just a few examples of this left-wing vitriol. Remember back in January, Madonna literally threatening, fantasizing about blowing up the White House. Remember this? (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) MADONNA, SINGER: Yes, I'm angry. Yes, I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. Now, leftists, Hollywood liberals — they aren't alone in viciously attacking the president. Then you got the destroy Trump media. Now, for months, 11 months almost, they have done the exact same thing, if not a lot worse. Take a look at what so-called news looks like. It's real fake news, though. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I understand where you were coming from. I understand why you liked him. But this man is lying to you. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Trump's critics, those who are worried about this president and this White House, saw a live special television event brought to you by narcissism, thin skin, chaos and deeply personal grievances. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president, in part. And that's the part where the pain comes. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: When he said today "America first," it was not just the racial — I mean, the — I shouldn't say "racial," the Hitlerian background to it. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is a very sad night for the country. You can't polish this turd. (CROSSTALK) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: — fake news. What if you had called him a fake president? UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He's there with his wife. Here's there with his whole family, as I say, like the Romanovs. He's got — he's got Jared, who might be a part of this story (INAUDIBLE) And he's got his daughter, Ivanka. It's like a traveling royal Romanov family! UNIDENTIFIED MALE: You can't defend what the president of the United States just said. (CROSSTALK) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: If he took a dump on his desk, you would defend it. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: And now we're supposed to believe all of these media folks and Democrats are preaching unity? But yet they have done nothing but smear, slander, besmirch this president for months. In case you forgot. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This executive order was mean-spirited and un-American. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Republican leaders and President Trump don't give a (EXPLETIVE DELETED) about the people they were trying to hurt! UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I will fight every day until he is impeached. Impeach 45! (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Impeach 45! UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This is a bunch of scumbags. That's what they are– UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Those are very strong words, Congressman. UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: — who are all organized around making money. UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We see nothing that we can work — that I can work with President Bush (sic) on. I'm trying really hard to find something positive. This morning, he had three tweets. I was thinking he was more of a creature that stalked the night, that these just came out at night like a vampire (INAUDIBLE) tweet us (ph) these things. But now it's spread to the morning. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: And after Wednesday's left-wing assassination attempt, the Huffington Post — they had to take down an article calling for the president's execution. Take a look at the headline we showed you last night, "Impeachment is no longer enough, Donald Trump must face justice." And here's the sub-headline, "Impeachment, removal from office are only the first steps. For America to be redeemed, Donald Trump must be prosecuted for treason. If convicted in a court of law, executed." Beyond disturbing. But there are plenty of other examples. Earlier this week, liberal Hollywood actor, left-wing activist Mark Ruffalo — he called on his followers to sign a petition that demands NBC News stop hiring conservatives for on-air positions, white conservatives? We've also seen people like Robert de Niro and Mickey Rourke and Marilyn Manson advocating for violence against this president. And outside of Hollywood, then, of course, you have groups like Black Lives Matter. What do we want, dead cops. When do we want them, now. Pigs in a blanket, fry `em like bacon. Hillary Clinton supported that group. President Obama met with them in the White House! They've been spewing hate for years. And by the way, where was their criticism of Kathy Griffin and her ISIS pose? Take a look at Black Lives Matter. (END VIDEO CLIP) PROTESTERS: Pigs in a blanket, fry `em like bacon! Pigs in a blanket, fry `em like bacon! UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (INAUDIBLE) PROTESTERS: Now! UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (INAUDIBLE) PROTESTERS: Now! (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Also, we have all seen the out-of-control anger and rage that is springing up all over college campuses where — you know, showing you video– Berkeley, California, earlier this year, protesters starting a riot. Why? Because a conservative was going to speak at the university, the home of the Free Speech Movement. Now, while all these examples of hatred are shocking and alarming, they're not new. Now, the roots of the left's rage go back decades, if not further. In fact, it is part of the movement's DNA. You know, groups like the Mayday Labor Movement, the Weather Underground, remember them, led by Barack Obama's pals, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, the Occupy Wall Street movement all started with, subscribed to radical left-wing hate-filled ideology advocating for using violence to their advantage in their political objectives. So while the Democrats and the left are putting their hate on pause for 24 hours last night, not even 24 hours, you can bet they're only getting started when it comes to the president, conservatives, Republicans in this country. Here with reaction, the author of the brand-new book, "Understanding Trump" — it's on Amazon.com, book stores everywhere — former speaker of the House, Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich. Look, there's been a long history — all right, we can argue, OK, we're not dueling in this country. And we went through the `60s and this period of horrible assassination from Martin Luther King, Jr., and Robert F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Kent State and all these other cases. But in my lifetime, there's never been anything like this! They will not accept this president as duly elected. And I don't think it stops at all. Your thoughts.

Hannity: “Destroy Trump Alliance” “Wetting Their Pants” Over Comey Memo, He’s A “Bitter Partisan”


On Wednesday's show, Sean Hannity said, "the never-Trumpers, all right, groups like National Review, The Weekly Standard, and people who never thought or wanted Donald Trump to win, never thought he could win," are trying to be vindicated. "Now, if the president succeeds, it means they fail. They're out of business. So what's happening? They're doing everything they can possibly do to try and stop all of that from happening," Hannity said of the 'Destroy Trump Alliance' on Wednesday's edition of Hannity. Hannity called Comey a disgruntled ex-employee who is a "bitter partisan" that is "out for blood." "James Comey didn't do his job," Hannity said about the former FBI director's handling of the Clinton investigation. "He got fired. Now he's a bitter partisan and he's out for blood! He's a disgruntled, fired ex-employee, and frankly, anything he has to say for himself in a memo — well, first, it's his word versus Trump's, but it's meaningless!" Hannity said the establishment is using leakers to keep the "system" intact because "that's where they maintain their power." He called for Americans to get engaged and battle. Transcript of his Wednesday night monologue: SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Major breaking news tonight. The Department of Justice has appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to oversee the investigation into Russian election interference, or possible interference. Tonight, Laura Ingraham, Mike Huckabee, David Limbaugh, Geraldo Rivera, Dennis Kucinich, Lou Dobbs are all here with reaction. But first, everything we have been telling you since November the 8th has been coming to fruition. And as I explained last night, in an unprecedented move, five powerful groups are now aligning to take down President Trump. Their goal is simple. They do not want President Trump to govern, and they will do anything and say anything to stop him from enacting the agenda you elected him to enact. We're going to explain tonight what you can do and how to fight back, and that's tonight's "Opening Monologue." All right, so last night, we told you about the five groups that are aligning to stop President Trump. Now, these groups are, by the way, all the swamp that needs to be drained. Let me explain. Number one, you've got the destroy Trump media, perhaps among the worst. They're bitter, they are hostile, every night constantly coming up with one bizarre conspiracy theory after another, lie after lie after lie! You've got a group number two, the Democrats, totally unhinged. They still can't get over the fact Donald Trump won and Hillary lost. Number three, perhaps the most dangerous, the deep state. They're targeting President Trump by selectively leaking information, true or not true, almost now on a daily basis. They are at war with the president of the United States. Number four, the never-Trumpers, all right, groups like National Review, The Weekly Standard, and people who never thought or wanted Donald Trump to win, never thought he could win. Now, they're now looking to be vindicated. They want relevance once again because they're so important and they were proven so wrong in 2016. Number five, establishment Republicans. Now, they're not so much a danger. They never supported President Trump, never supported his agenda. And they're now looking for any excuse because they're afraid of their own shadow. They were always afraid they'd get blamed for a government shutdown. But the bottom line is this: Make no mistake about it, these five groups are directly threatened by President Donald Trump because his presidency means the destruction of everything they stand for and the old way of how Washington, D.C., works. Now, if the president succeeds, it means they fail. They're out of business. So what's happening? They're doing everything they can possibly do to try and stop all of that from happening. Now, let me remind you, now, these are people — remember? They openly laughed at, mocked President Trump's candidacy! They thought it was the funniest thing ever! He can't win. You may remember this. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) SETH MEYERS, WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENTS' DINNER, APRIL 30, 2011: Donald Trump has been saying that he will run for president as a Republican, which is surprising because I just assumed he was running as a joke. (LAUGHTER) REP. KEITH ELLISON, D-MINN., "THIS WEEK"/ABC, JULY 26, 2015: We better be ready for the fact that he might be leading the Republican ticket. (LAUGHTER) GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS, CO-HOST: I know you don't believe that, but I want to go on (INAUDIBLE) UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Sorry to laugh. BILL MAHER, "REAL TIME"/HBO, JUNE 19, 2015: Which Republican candidate has the best chance of winning the general election? ANN COULTER, CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATOR: Of the declared ones right now? Donald Trump. (LAUGHTER) (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: He can't win! It's the funniest thing ever! Then you remember election night? I remember election night well. I was sitting in my bed, literally tuning channel to channel to channel. After Donald Trump won, all across the television dial, it was a funeral. They couldn't believe it. It was shock and awe! Remember this? (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS FROM NOV. 9, 2016) LAWRENCE O'DONNELL, MSNBC: America is crying tonight. I'm not sure how much of America, but a very, very significant portion. And I mean literally crying. This is a sadness. It is a mourning moment for those people. And it is a moment filled with fear, filled with fear. RACHEL MADDOW, MSNBC: Our country is about to face some serious crises. And so buckle up, your country needs you. VAN JONES, CNN: This was a whitelash. This was a whitelash against a changing country. It was a whitelash against a black president in part, and that's the part where the pain comes. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Ah, now that shock has given way to anger and real bitterness on their part. And since that day, they have now been relentlessly pushing bizarre tinfoil hat conspiracy theories, lies, all in an attempt to take down President Trump. Don't believe me? We've got the videotape all for you. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) O'DONNELL, APRIL 7: Wouldn't it be nice if it was just completely, totally, absolutely impossible to suspect that Vladimir Putin orchestrated what happened in Syria this week so that his friend in the White House could have a big night with missiles and all of the praise he's picked up over the last 24 hours? Wouldn't it be so nice if you couldn't even in your wildest dreams imagine a scenario like that? CHRIS MATTHEWS, MARCH 22: I'll say it again. This Russian connection just keeps building, and every time it builds and expands, you have to wonder if Trump himself isn't worried about's swirling around under the covers. ANDERSON COOPER, MARCH 20: CNN has learned new details of the FBI investigation into potential links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government. UNIDENTIFIED MALE, MARCH 5, ON NBC NEWS: Specifically, Willie, I think what it means is that a federal judge found that people in Trump's organization were colluding with the Russians. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: See what's happening? They're moving (ph) breathlessly, and I mean breathlessly, the hysteria on television every day and night. They're going from one manufactured scandal to the next manufactured scandal to the next lie, and they're creating feeding frenzies all in the hopes their smears, lies, attacks are going to stick and lead to President Trump's downfall. Now, just look at the Trump-hating Washington Post story saying that President Trump gave the Russian foreign minister and ambassador classified information while they were visiting the White House last week. OK, it was denied by the Trump administration officials who were actually in the room. But they have their sources, outside sources and sources formerly in the administration and sources from Mars, apparently. And that's only one of three stories The Washington Post has gotten wrong in just the past two weeks. Now, The Washington Post, just like the rest of the destroy Trump media, has no credibility. And it's why our friend Newt Gingrich has very wisely said and is now saying he is, quote, "personally offended" by the American news media and that they're, quote, "disgusting and destructive." That's the only way to describe it. The former speaker is right. And it goes along with every single thing that we have been saying on this show. And now, predictably, this destroy Trump alliance — they're wetting their pants over The New York Times report that cites a memo, James Comey, claiming that President Trump asked the now former, fired, disgruntled, failed FBI director to end the investigation into Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. He took notes. After all, it's his word against Trump's, but the media is believing him and believing what he's saying. Now, you got the predictably deranged Democrats, they're unhinged allies. They're not wasting this opportunity. They're now calling for President Trump's impeachment, and they know no facts. Don't believe me? Here's your honest media at work lying to you as usual. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) REP. AL GREEN, D-TEXAS: I rise today, Mr. Speaker, to call for the impeachment of the president of the United States of America for obstruction of justice. WOLF BLITZER, CNN: Are we getting closer and closer to the possibility of yet another impeachment process? DAVID GERGEN, FORMER PRESIDENTIAL ADVISER, ON CNN: After watching the Clinton impeachment, I thought I'd never see another one, but I think we're in impeachment territory now for the first time. UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE ON MSNBC: We are well on our way to impeachment because I think there's a clear set of facts that show obstruction of justice. MADDOW: This is heading toward the end, right? It has to be, right? It feels that way. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: No, actually, wrong, in spite of all the foaming at the mouth because the media and the Democrats think this is their chance, they've got to get the president now while they've got time! Now, unlike the Democrats and the destroy Trump media and their running-wild conspiracy theories, here on this program, we actually care about truth and about facts and about reality. Donald Trump is not getting impeached over the James Comey deal. Now, as we explained in great detail on Monday, James Comey deserved to be fired. He wasn't the so-called champion of truth. He was an utter and complete failure. He was a national embarrassment. His conduct was shameful. We explained how he disrespected the Constitution, the rule of law, equal justice under the law for every American, how he created a two-tiered justice system, one for Bill and Hillary Clinton and one for the rest of us. Now, Comey himself laid out the case against Hillary Clinton committing felony after felony with her private email server and explained how she broke several laws with her, quote, "extremely careless" behavior. Remember, the standard is grossly mismanaged, grossly inappropriate, gross negligence. That's the standard legally. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, JULY 5, 2016) JAMES COMEY, FBI DIRECTOR: From the group of 30,000 emails returned to the State Department in 2014, 110 emails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was top-secret at the time they were sent. Thirty-six of those chains contained secret information at the time, and eight contained confidential information at the time. That's the lowest level of classification. Separate from those, about 2,000 additional emails were up-classified to make them confidential. Those e-mails had not been classified at the time that they were sent… (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: He described felonies! But then guess what? Comey played politics. He gives Hillary Clinton a free pass! Remember Christian Saucier? He got a full year of prison. He took pictures inside a submarine he was working on and serving on. Now, the same goes for the Clinton Foundation. Remember Peter Schweizer? He exposed the pay-to-play schemes at the foundation and the extremely suspicious Uranium One deal. Remember? Hillary Clinton herself gave a waiver that allowed 20 percent of American uranium to go to Vladimir Putin, the real Russian connection. The Clintons stuffed their pockets with millions and millions and millions of dollars while she was serving as secretary of state. And Comey didn't and think it was important enough to even investigate. Then, of course, we all care about the Constitution, our 4th Amendment privacy rights. Well, we know the Obama administration, during a campaign season, 600 percent increase that they surveilled, unmasked and leaked then the name of Lieutenant General Michael Flynn. That's a felony! That's violation of the Espionage Act! In fact, it's the only crime we actually know was committed in this whole Russia conspiracy theory, and the media never talks about it. Now, Comey once again had a reason to act, and he didn't act. Now, James Comey didn't do his job. He got fired. Now he's a bitter partisan and he's out for blood! He's a disgruntled, fired ex-employee, and frankly, anything he has to say for himself in a memo — well, first, it's his word versus Trump's, but it's meaningless! Donald Trump's not getting impeached over this. And it's only a matter of time. What did I say the day after he got fired? Comey will get a multi- million dollar book deal, a movie, a miniseries, primetime special, Diane Sawyer, or maybe even George Stephanopoulos. Why not go totally in for the Clintons? And probably an MSNBC contributor-ship. Now, he wants be booked on Rachel Maddow, Steve Colbert, Bill Maher, the biggest Trump haters in the country. Now, if James Comey's so concerned about this dinner with the president, why didn't James Comey immediately go to the Department of Justice and sound the alarm? By the way, he had a legal obligation to do so. As my colleague, Greg Jarrett, pointed out, Comey may have, in fact, broken two laws by not coming forward if he thought this was an attempt at obstruction of justice. Look at 18 U.S. Code 4. "Whoever having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable (ph) by a court of the United States conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years or both." Oh, three years. And according to 28 U.S. Code 13.61, "The district courts shall have original jurisdiction of any action in the nature of mandamus to compel an officer or employee of the United States or any agency thereof to perform a duty owed to the plaintiff." And why last week during a congressional hearing did the acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, say this? (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, MAY 11) SEN. MARCO RUBIO, R-FLA.: I think the American people want to know, has the dismissal of Mr. Comey in any way impeded, interrupted, stopped, or negatively impacted any of the work, any investigation or any ongoing projects at the Federal Bureau of Investigation? ANDREW MCCABE, ACTING FBI DIRECTOR: The work, the men and women of the FBI continues despite any changes in circumstance, any decisions. so there has been no effort to impede our investigation to date. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: This is so important. This Comey story is just part of the larger puzzle tonight. And this is where I want you to really pay really close attention. It is another piece. You got these five powerful groups actively trying to take down a sitting United States president. These five forces are trying to create enough confusion and doubt through their innuendo because they're trying at the very least to stop President Trump from doing the job that he promised you he would do. Now, they want to keep the current system perfectly intact because that's where they maintain their own power! So many of you are writing me. You are worried about the theatrics, the hysteria in the media. You're worried about the Democrats calling for impeachment. You're worried about the deep state and the leaking. You're worried about never-Trumpers that now they're feeling vindication and relevancy again that I told you about. You know, I often say on my radio show and in life, let not your heart be troubled. Here's my advice to you tonight. It's time for you to stand up and fight. You voted for the economy — you voted for the economy and the plan to grow the economy to get people off of poverty, out of food stamps and back in the labor force and get the home ownership rate at a 51-year low back up again. You voted for all of those things, lower taxes, seven brackets to three. You voted for extreme venting. You voted for ObamaCare repealing and replacing. It's happening. You voted for a stronger posture to defeat ISIS. You voted for a much stronger military. And more importantly, you voted to drain the swamp. Here's my advice to you. If you voted, if this was your dream for America in November, stop wringing your hands. Start fighting for the things that you voted for. This is a real clear threat to what you wanted in November. Get engaged. This battle is now being fought for the hearts and minds of the American people. Losing can't be an option.

Ingraham: The Left, Media Began To Write About And Urge Impeachment Since Election Night


Laura Ingraham on Wednesday's broadcast of Hannity on the FOX News Channel: SEAN HANNITY: You know, I don't feel — do you agree on the five alliance people, that they're really trying to destroy the president? LAURA INGRAHAM, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Absolutely. I was — while I was listening to you, I did a few quick cursory searches going back to November, and it was basically within a week of Donald Trump winning the presidency, when everyone was shocked — I'm so glad you played those old clips of the ashen faces of the reporters — that the left began to write about and urge possibilities toward impeachment. This is something they had in mind ever since they got hit with a two-by- four on election night. And they will continue to work fast and furious toward this goal of not only resisting the Trump agenda, but they hope to humiliate him, destroy him, and then destroy along with him the conservative populist agenda that he ran on that, you know, obviously, stood for strong borders, no amnesty, getting rid of those bad trade deals, less of a — you know, a global policeman role for the United States. A lot of people are really threatened by that agenda. So I'm so glad you raise that. That's a — that's something we should talk about here because no serious person thinks that Donald Trump obstructed justice in a conversation with Comey because if he did, Comey thought he did, Comey would have reported it, as is his legal duty, as you pointed out in your monologue. That's Comey's legal duty to do. He didn't. And the investigation was not obstructed. So That's all preposterous. Under Article 2, the president has a duty and a right to oversee the FBI, and you know, they properly delegate the law enforcement to the FBI and try to insulate it from politics. But that's not to curb the president's Article 2 authority over the FBI. So if he wants to meet with the FBI and give his opinion or even talk about his hopes, if indeed, he said that, he has every right to do so. HANNITY: Yes, no, it's interesting that James Comey may have committed a crime if he thought he was attempting to obstruct justice. Apparently, he didn't take it now. Even if he did think it, he doesn't think it now because we're reminding him of the law. Apparently, he didn't know laws about that Hillary Clinton had broken. So I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't know this one. Look, he's bitter. He'll have his book deal, movie, miniseries, Diane Sawyer. That's all coming. Here's my next question. The Washington Post — let's go back to that story for just a second here because there's a feeding frenzy a day now and The Washington — He leaked intelligence! Nobody cared about Hillary. But more importantly, The Washington Post last week got two big stories wrong about the deputy attorney general threatening to quit. He said, No, I never threatened to quit, and James Comey asking for more money… INGRAHAM: Yes, Paul (ph), Paul (ph). HANNITY: We got plenty of money. We don't need the money. How do people see the headline, they're wrong all the time, they cheered this week when they got such a response to this… INGRAHAM: Oh, so transparent. HANNITY: … story. How do they get away with getting, quote — quoted everywhere and hysteria on TV? INGRAHAM: I've got to say, Sean, remember when Donald Trump talked about the Bezos media, Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com… HANNITY: Yes. INGRAHAM: … committed liberal, when he bought The Washington Post, we all expected The Post, which is already pretty left-wing, to move even further left. And now it's just an extension of the DNC. For the most part, and The New York Times might be a little better, and they have some good reporters at both places. I'm not trying to besmirch the reputation of all reporters. But on some of this stuff, it is so irresponsibly reported, and taking so many anonymous sources with literally no accountability, and it seems like an axe to grind. There never is any question of the motivations of these leakers. And they — over at The New York Times, Sean, they're willing to go with a story about a memo they haven't even seen! Who's talking about those journalistic elements? HANNITY: Oh, I'm sure it exists. Memo to self, oh, Donald Trump said this. INGRAHAM: Yes, never self-serving, though! No one ever writes self- serving memos! HANNITY: No. Oh, yes, make him look — again, he should have told the Justice Department if he thought he was attempting to obstruct justice. Let me pick your legal mind here. With all the hysteria — I mean, it's breathless reporting, and all the media — I think we're the only rational, sane people now, which, by the way, will drive them crazy to hear me say that. INGRAHAM: Yes. Yes. HANNITY: But here's my point. Putting your legal hat on for just a second — there's nothing here, legally, nothing. But… INGRAHAM: Oh, I know. I'm, you're right. I mean… HANNITY: So what is the net effect of this? My argument… INGRAHAM: Well, again, it's not about — I don't think most serious legal scholars or commentators believe any crime was committed. Remember, with impeachment, the crime is whatever — or the conduct is whatever Congress decides it is. It doesn't have to be a crime. They can be — it can be whatever Congress decides it's going to be at that moment. So that's number one. Number two, what they want to do is stop this agenda. So if they can call his integrity into question — and I'm not saying Donald Trump has not made mistakes. I think he has made some mistakes in judgment and on some occasions, been poorly served by the staff. But if they can nick up and cut up his judgment, his integrity, his credibility, they believe that they'll scare these pusillanimous Republicans who — and who need to grow a spine — they'll scare them into this perpetual defensive crouch. They won't push tax reform. They won't do health care reform. The won't do the renegotiation of NAFTA. They won't do any of that because they're waiting for the other shoe to drop. That's what the Democrats are counting on, Sean. And when you have people like John McCain, who shamelessly went out and mentioned Watergate, it is — when you see someone like McCain do that, you wonder why — you know, we don't even need a Chuck Schumer if we have John McCain. And then others, like Justin Amash, congressman who actually is a good guy and a conservative guy. What is he doing? What is he mentioning impeachment for? HANNITY: I know. INGRAHAM: It's — it's… HANNITY: He hated Trump from the beginning. INGRAHAM: There's a level — I'm going to be really — not crude, not crude, but not so nice here. It is a level of stupidity and defensiveness that you never see the Democrats acting defensive. They all stay together and they all defend their people and their positions. But Republicans are the first ones to turn tail and run when any — when a New York Times reporter comes a'knocking. It's really reprehensible

Kucinich: “Deep State” Trying To Take Down Trump, “Our Country Is Under Attack Within”


In an interview with Sean Hannity, former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said the "deep state" within the bureaucracy is trying to destroy Donald Trump's presidency. "The political process of the United States of America being under attack by intelligence agencies and individuals in those agencies," said Wednesday night. Kucinich said Americans must put party politics aside and acknowledge that the federal government is "under attack from within." "You have politicization of agencies that is resulting in leaks from anonymous, unknown people and the intention is to take down a president," former Rep. Kucinich said. "Now, this is very dangerous to America. It's a threat to our republic, it constitutes a clear and present danger to our way of life. So we have to be asking, what is the motive of these people? Who's putting these leaks out? Why doesn't somebody come forward and make a charge and put their name and reputation behind it, instead of attacking through the media and not substantiating their position?" "Our first allegiance is to our country," Kucinich said. "This isn't about one president, this is about the political process of the United States of America being under attack by intelligence agencies and individuals in those agencies, yes, as you said there might be good people in there, but there are certain individuals who are lifers who want to be able to direct the policy of the country. And if the president stands in their way whether it's a Democrat or Republican they'll just try to run that person out." "Let me just repeat what you said, you're saying President Trump is under attack by the deep state intelligence community. Fair statement?" Hannity asked the former Congressman. "I believe that," Kucinich responded. "Not only that, Sean, it has to be pointed out in October of 2016, that same deep state overrode the decision of President Obama and Secretary Kerry, to come to an agreement with Russia to a ceasefire in Syria. They overrode it and launched an attack against a Syrian military base. So, this is a problem in our country. We've got to protect our nation here. People have to be aware of what's going on. We've got to stand up for America, this isn't about Democrat, Republican. This is about getting what's going on in the moment and understanding that our country itself is under attack from within."
