Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday evening, Sean warned all Americans that we must now “hold our government accountable” and get to the bottom of Deep State abuse during the 2016 presidential election.
“We live in the single, greatest country God ever gave man. Never before has a country acquired more power and abused it less. Never has a country used its power and resources for the advancement of the human condition around the globe,” said Hannity.
“What makes this country so special starts with our founding document, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights… It’s so important that we now hold our government accountable, that we prevent the erosion of these hard-fought freedoms,” he added.
“If we don’t get this right, and protect these principles, America as we know it will cease to exist. That’s why we’re sounding the alarm about high-ranking bureaucrats in the Deep State,” concluded Hannity.
President Trump gave the go-ahead to Attorney General William Barr last Thursday to investigate US intelligence agencies over the origins of the Russia-Trump collusion probe during the 2016 race for the White House.
“President Donald Trump on Thursday granted Attorney General William Barr new powers to review and potentially release classified information related to the origins of the Russia investigation, a move aimed at accelerating Barr’s inquiry into whether U.S. officials improperly surveilled Trump’s 2016 campaign,” reports the Associated Press.
“Trump directed the intelligence community to ‘quickly and fully cooperate’ with Barr’s probe. The directive marked an escalation in Trump’s efforts to ‘investigate the investigators,’ as he continues to try to undermine the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe amid mounting Democratic calls for impeachment proceedings,” adds the article.
Barr’s new mission comes days after he announced the appointment of a US attorney to investigate the dubious origins of the government’s surveillance of Trump campaign associates.
Attorney General William Barr questioned the DOJ’s use of the infamous ‘Steele Dossier’ to obtain FISA warrants against the Trump campaign this week; saying the document has a “number of clear mistakes.”
“It’s a very unusual situation to have opposition research like that, especially one that on its face had a number of clear mistakes and a somewhat jejune analysis,” Barr told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer.
“And to use that to conduct counterintelligence against an American political campaign is a strange — would be strange development,” he added.
