IF RUSSIA PROBE “A DISTRACTION,” WHAT IS ON THE HORIZON?
by Sharon Rondeau
Guest host Jeanine Pirro interviewed a number of commentators about the investigation, which has sought to verify whether or not now-President Donald Trump and/or his campaign associates worked with the Kremlin to see that he was victorious over Democrat presidential contender Hillary Clinton last November.
Trump has denied any improper communications with the Russians, as have his aides and other professional associates, including his personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
Over the last two weeks, Circa News and The Hill have revealed that “collusion” with Russia may have occurred with the DNC, Hillary Clinton and their associates in the form of hiring the political research firm Fusion GPS to produce the now-infamous “Russian dossier” to discredit Trump.
Media outlets are not expected to take part in or fund political activity, including research on political candidates, in order to maintain their objectivity.
Since 2008, Hannity has declared from his platform that “journalism in America is dead.”
Hannity tweeted throughout Pirro’s broadcast references to the week’s earlier reportage that despite a 2009-2010 FBI investigation into Russian operatives seeking to control a larger part of the U.S.’s uranium supply utilizing the techniques of bribery, extortion, and kickbacks, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, and White House occupant Barack Hussein Obama approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to a Russian company through a Canadian acquisition.
Hannity began his tweets with “When will @Hillary Clinton be indicted?”
Earlier on Friday, CNN reported that a federal grand jury issued an unspecified number of indictments in Mueller’s probe which have amounted to “charges.” The Fifth Amendment tasks a grand jury with determining whether or not enough evidence exists for the government to formally charge a suspect.
On Twitter, those who believe that there was collusion between Trump associates and the Kremlin speculated as to who would be arrested, which, according to CNN, could occur on Monday.
In recent days, it was reported that Mueller and his team have been investigating the activity of The Podesta Group, a prominent lobbying firm headed by Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
Hannity included in his tweets speculation that Mueller and the media are “working hand in hand.” “Media to be tipped off,” he wrote.
It was not clear if Hannity was referring to the alleged grand jury indictments or another aspect of the investigation.
Pirro and several of her guests questioned Mueller’s objectivity in agreeing to conduct the probe in the first place given that he and his successor as FBI Director, James Comey, are acquainted and worked together in the past at the Department of Justice.
Sara Carter of Circa and John Solomon of The Hill have pointed out in their reports that Mueller was in charge of the FBI when the Obama regime approved the sale of uranium to Russia.
In two of four tweets during the hour, Hannity appeared to refer to the revelations of the week as “a distraction.”
Former White House Deputy Assistant Sebastian Gorka has accused Hillary and former President Bill Clinton of treason as a result of their alleged self-enrichment in the uranium scheme which reportedly resulted in at least a $145 million donation from Russia to the Clinton Foundation, which Bill Clinton operates.
The Clintons have remained virtually silent on the allegations contained in new reports unveiled over the week.
After Hannity’s show ended, Trump tweeted:
Hannity was and remains a strong Trump supporter from the early days of the presidential campaign. On October 12, Hannity interviewed Trump one-on-one at a rally in Pennsylvania, where he mentioned the assertion made by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange that the source of thousands of leaked emails from the DNC server in 2016 was not the Russian government or any “state party.”
