Sean Hannity declared that the "witch hunt" against President Trump headed up by special counsel Robert Mueller is done in the wake of a memo circulating among lawmakers that reportedly details surveillance abuses by the U.S. government.
In the monologue of his show Thursday night, Hannity said that news of the memo, which has not yet been released publicly, was a major obstacle for Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
"I have a message tonight for the special counsel, Robert Mueller," Hannity said, opening his show. "Your witch hunt is now over. Time to close the doors, Meuller and his band of witch hunters need to be disbanded." Hannity said Thursday that Fox News's sources point to the alleged abuses committed under the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act program are "far bigger" than Watergate, the scandal that brought down President Richard Nixon.
"Our sources are telling us that the abuse of power is far bigger than Watergate," Hannity said. "Remember, Watergate was a third-rate break-in. What we're talking about tonight is the systematic abuse of power, the weaponizing of those powerful tools of intelligence and the shredding of our Fourth Amendment, constitutional rights.
