Sean Hannity Responds to Latest Fake News Attack

Originally published at: https://www.hannity.com/media-room/sean-hannity-responds-to-latest-fake-news-attack/

It is ironic that I am being attacked for investing my personal money in communities that badly need such investment and in which, I am sure, those attacking me have not invested their money. The fact is, these are investments that I do not individually select, control, or know the details about; except that obviously I believe in putting my money to work in communities that otherwise struggle to receive such support.

I have never discussed with anybody at HUD the original loans that were obtained in the Obama years, nor the subsequent refinance of such loans, as they are a private matter. I had no role in, or responsibility for, any HUD involvement in any of these investments. I can say that every rigorous process and strict standard of improvement requirements were followed; all were met, fulfilled and inspected.

The LLC’s are REAL companies that spend real investment money on real properties.

I don’t really see the irony here except that this can easily be written into a chapter of “Clinton Cash” with a name change and the substitution of nightly programs for big speeches.

Everything our host does is probably ethical. But when our host, as a media figure, sharpens a kryptonite spear like Peter Schweizer, it’s not ironic when a similar weapon is turned back against him. It’s only ironic that some of us are suprised.

Sean Hannity isn’t being being attacked for investing his personal money in communities that badly need such investment. He is being criticized for being an ardent defender of Michael Cohen, including repeatedly having him on his show without notifying his audience that he has a personal and business relationship with him.

Well, there are a couple of troubling things here:

  1. Sean Hannity uses his microphone to rail against government regulations and hosts attacks on Dodd-Frank, legislation designed to curb future foreclosure meltdowns. Meanwhile, he profits from foreclosures. So is his small government/limited regulation position driven by his reading of the constitution, or his desire to buy foreclosed properties? This is why disclosure matters. His audience deserves to know if there could be ulterior motives.

  2. Some properties were bought with federal government guaranteed loans. Kind of hard to take some one serious who complains about the fed overstepping, while taking advantage of a federally backed loan - where does the constitution say anything about backing millionaires buying foreclosed properties?

  3. One HUD backed mortgage started under Obama. Lol. Then, were renewed by Carson’s department. He did not disclose this while giving Carson a glowing softball interview. Is this because he believes Carson is a great HUD director, or because he might want to increase that loan again in the future?

And basically, this is the same old conservative game…use the power of politics for private enrichment.

nothing illegal here. Nothing really immoral IMO. But hypocritical and dishonest to his listeners IMO.

“You have no reason to remember, but we came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt, ee had no money when we got there, and we struggled to piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education. It was not easy. Bill has worked really hard. And it’s been amazing to me. He’s worked very hard.”

I guess you think you have a point here, but you really don’t. What Bill and Hillary did was get rich off of Bill’s being the president. (Putting aside the obvious lie that they were flat broke…I mean, come on…there certainly weren’t as rich as they would become, but broke? No…) That is a fairly straightforward thing in America - politicians cash in through speeches and books etc…

that is different from the conservative long con, which is to specifically use their ideology to make them, and their chosen friends, wealthy. Like, for example, using your ideology to push for less wall street reform, only to then buy up the foreclosed properties that result from that policy.

The more typical ones are ‘outsourcing to shrink the size of government’ only to shift the pay from unionized public sector employees to non-union privatized corps who pay the same workers less and keep the profit. But I digress…

Whataboutism…neat…doesn’t change the hypocrisy.

Carson did increase it by 5 million…drain the swamp comes to mind…I’m not sure there is anything more swampy than this.

I’m wondering if you guys are aware that Hannity believing in hard assets. He’s not into stocks so where else does he invest in?

Beside he is investing with others, it’s not like he owns them outright or taking advantage of our hud laws.

As for 87 million I highly doubt that. Maybe total with other investors.

Oh, I think that’s great. And all well and good.

It’s just a little problematic that he doesn’t disclose his interest in foreclosed real estate while preaching the deregulation of lending. And accepting federal govt. loan guarantees is hypocritical since he complains about them. And not disclosing that Carson’s HUD increased his loan by 5m before his softball interview isn’t very straightforward.

Where did you read that he is investing with others?

This attack is being orchestrated by a Fifth Column movement in the country and stoked by Yellow Journalism. Anything to keep our current Administration’s accomplishments off the front page. It’s a big, freaken distraction!

BTW, my wife and I saw Donald Trump as the lessor of two evils during the election. But subsequent to the election, we have changed our feelings because of Trump actually keeping many of his promises.

the funny thing is you think this is all there is to this. Nobody is arguing what he did was wrong with the info we have. It is hypocritical to rail against government agencies while using them for your own gain. that old do as i say not as i do you folks love to live by

Stop with the baloney.

I, and many others, “rail against” the IRS and our current federal tax system. And although we use its fine print to make sure we only pay what is legally required, that does not make us hypocrites.
