Sean Hannity Testifies He ‘Did Not Believe For One Second’ That the 2020 Election Was Stolen

Fox News host Sean Hannity has testified under oath that he did not believe “for one second” that the 2020 election was fraudulent.

Hannity reportedly testified in a deposition on Wednesday concerning Dominion Voting Systems’ $1.6 billion defamation lawsuit against Fox News.

“I did not believe it for one second,” Hannity said of claims that the election was rigged or stolen.

Stephen Shackelford, Jr., an attorney for Dominion, told the New York Times that many Fox News stars have said that they do not believe that the election was stolen.

“Many of the highest-ranking Fox people have admitted under oath that they never believed the Dominion lies,” Shackelford said, according to the Times report.

Shackelford said that even Tucker Carlson has said that he didn’t believe the election was stolen.

“Mr. Shackelford described how Mr. Carlson had ‘tried to squirm out of it at his deposition’ when asked about what he really believed,” the Times report says. “Mr. Shackelford started to elaborate about what Mr. Carlson had said privately, telling the judge about the existence of text messages the host had sent in November and December of 2020. But the judge, Eric M. Davis, cut him off, leaving the specific contents of those texts unknown.”

The case will be going to trial in April.

To win, Dominion must prove that Fox hosts were saying one thing privately and another thing publicly.

According to the Times report, Dominion’s lawyers argued in court on Wednesday that “they had obtained ample evidence to make that case.”
