In his opening monologue Tuesday night, Fox News’ Sean Hannity explained point by point how the fix was in for every scandal involving “America’s most corrupt political family.”
“Hillary Clinton rigged the Democratic primary to stop Bernie Sanders. She robbed him blind,” he said, citing former DNC interim chairwoman Donna Brazile. “The fix was in,” he said.
“Hillary Clinton actually colluded with Russia by paying millions and millions of dollars for that fake news dossier — Russian propaganda, Russian collusion — to smear Donald Trump. And she tried to influence you, the American people, to swing the election with those lies,” he continued.
“James Comey changed the announcement about Clinton’s private email server even after her team deleted 33,000 subpoenaed emails, destroyed some of them by using acid wash known as ‘Bleach bit,’ and even taking a hammer to blackberries.”
New memos seen by members of Congress and leaked to the media reveal that an early draft of former FBI Director James Comey’s statement closing out the Clinton email case accused her of having been “grossly negligent” in handling classified information, as opposed to the softer “extremely careless,” which he used in the final statement. The change was highly significant because gross negligence in handling the nation’s intelligence can be punished criminally with prison time or fines, according to federal law. Being “extremely careless” is only politically damaging.
“A huge legal distinction,” Hannity pointed out. “We’d go to jail for this. Comey top FBI officials knew Clinton engaged in criminal conduct, otherwise, they wouldn’t have [originally] accused her of gross negligence. But then something happened. The million dollar question is what.”
Hannity went on to note that Bill Clinton met with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at an airport for 40 minutes — a few days before Comey’s decision. In case you were wondering what they discussed. Hint: It wasn’t golf and grandkids.
Hannity also cited the “the corrupt Uranium One deal” as another example of the Clintons’ corruption: “Millions of dollars pour into the Clinton Foundation and Bill and Hillary’s pocket.”
“Donna Brazile continues to expose this corrupt Clinton political machine,” he said, praising the longtime Democrat operative for speaking out.
