On Thursday, Fox News host Sean Hannity argued there should be an investigation into Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a result of his close relationship with former FBI Director James Comey.
“We also need answers about the reports that the FBI, James Comey, offered to pay [former spy Christopher Steele] as much as $50,000,” Hannity asserted in reference to the amount that the FBI offered to pay the Trump dossier author.
“Also speaking of James Comey,” Hannity added, “well, he’s surrounded by controversy. He may have broken the law. Remember, removing classified government property from the FBI. And Comey also admitted that he gave one of his memos to a friend so that they’d leak it to the press, in that case, the New York Times, because he wanted a special counsel.”
“Well that special counsel turned out to be longtime BFF of James Comey, Robert Mueller,” he said.
“Now this guy has more conflict of interest than we can count,” Hannity contended, “so it’s time to start investigating the investigator.”
“Why did he hire Hillary Clinton’s attorney?” he questioned. “Why did he hire Obama and Hillary donors?”
“And Mueller, by the way,” he stated “potentially, did he break the law? Is he being unethical? Is he conducting an investigation where his friend James Comey is the star witness? Does that need to be a case of recusal?”
“And on top of that all the handful of investigators that donated only to Democratic presidential candidates,” Hannity continued.
