Like many other Trump supporters, Hannity believes that the “deep state,” meaning embedded, career federal employees who oppose Trump’s policies, is at war with “the people” and the sitting president, who promised to “drain the swamp” during his campaign.
Mueller has been leading the FBI investigation into whether or not Trump and/or his campaign aides “colluded” with Russia to secure his presidential victory over Clinton and the extent to which Russia “meddled” in the 2016 U.S. elections.
Hannity argued that an investigation should have been opened into Hillary Clinton’s destruction of approximately 33,000 emails from her private, unsecured server used during her years as Obama’s secretary of state. Last week, the House Judiciary Committee wrote a strongly-worded letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy, Rod Rosenstein, “to address issues outside the scope of Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation,” which included its concerns about Clinton and her aides.
Hannity said that Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights were eviscerated when Obama’s United Nations ambassador, Samantha Power, unmasked “hundreds” of names in 2016, according in a report by the Washington Free Beacon.
Like LCDR Walter Francis Fitzpatrick, III earlier on Thursday, Hannity said that Mueller continues to expand the investigation with the purpose of removing Trump from office.
Fitzpatrick, too, wrote to Sessions and other parties to request an investigation, specifically into Fitzpatrick’s claim that Mueller committed treason on many counts, including his oversight of “The Madisonville Hoax” in Monroe County, TN on April 20, 2010.
The night before, an Obama sycophant had called in a false bomb threat to then-Madisonville Mayor Alan Watson, warning that Fitzpatrick had urged members of “militia” groups to arrive in town the next day armed with bombs and guns to “take over the courthouse.”
Those making the false threat were not investigated, but rather, were supported, by dozens of FBI agents and other local and state law-enforcers.
In the 10:30 p.m. EDT segment of his show, Hannity’s guest, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, said that Mueller’s task to complete the two investigations is affected by what he called “mission creep.”
Trump’s business activity from years ago is now reportedly under investigation as well as a meeting his son, Donald Trump Jr., had with a Russian lawyer in June of last year. Father and son deny any wrongdoing.
Mueller worked under then-President George W. Bush and Obama, leaving the directorship of the FBI in 2013, when James B. Comey was nominated by Obama and confirmed by the Senate.
On May 9, Trump fired Comey.
On June 8, Comey said in sworn testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he purposely leaked at least one memo he wrote memorializing a meeting he had with Trump to a friend with the purpose of providing it to The New York Times to spur the hiring of a special counsel for the Russia investigations.
Leaking classified information is a federal felony, although no one has yet been indicted or identified as a person of interest in the 100+ leaks which have emanated from the intelligence community and White House since December in an effort to cast Trump in a poor light.
