Fox News host Sean Hannity is fuming over the media’s refusal to cover the Clinton-Uranium One scandal. Hannity told his radio show listers that ignoring the scandal “puts this country in danger.”
Transcript of Sean Hannity’s statement below via CNS:
“It is a disgrace. And let me be just [as] straightforward as I can possibly be: The news media in this country, they just outright lie to you on a regular basis – nonstop almost, a year of conspiracy theories, a year of lies without any evidence, a years [sic] of misleading headlines, a year of false reports that they end up rescinding.
“You know, all the evidence of corruption and criminal conduct in one of the biggest American scandals in history involving national security is right in front of the face of every media person. And it involves their favorite country, Russia, Russia, Russia, and their favorite world leader, Putin, Putin, Putin. And they do nothing. They do nothing. That makes them complicit, and that puts this country in danger. Are you listening Fake Jake, and the rest of you over at fake news?
“All the media cares about is destroying Donald Trump. That’s their only obsession. I don’t even think they’re in touch with their pathological hatred of the president at this point and how agenda driven they are at this point. They know not what they do.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity gave his BEST EVER monologue on the Clinton-Uranium One deal bombshell Tuesday night. In a nearly 14 minute throw down, Hannity blasted the Clintons, demanded Mueller, Rosenstein, and Sessions investigate the scandal and smashed the media for endlessly pushing the unproven Russian interference narrative.
The opening monologue is comprised of the first 14 minutes in the video above.
“After President Trump won in November, President Obama and his administration — they were telling anyone who would listen, ‘Russia! Russia! Russia! Russia interfered with our election. Russia was creating a direct threat to American democracy’” Hannity mocked. “Well if that’s the case, why when they have mountains of evidence that we will reveal tonight of Russian bribery going back to 2009, why then would the Obama administration and Hillary [Clinton] in particular sign off on the sale of 20% of America’s uranium to Vladimir Putin and the Russians?”
The Fox News host boasted about his own coverage of the Uranium One deal by showing a clip of himself from back in July predicting it would be “the biggest news” to come out this year.
“Tonight, with this new evidence, what we have discovered is that the evidence against the Clintons is overwhelming, it is incontrovertible,” Hannity continued. “Hillary Clinton and her husband sold out America to the Russians while millions of dollars flowed to their family foundation. And in the process, Clinton created a massive national security risk for every man, woman, and child — giving Vladimir Putin control over American uranium.”
