In an explosive Thursday night monologue, Fox News host Sean Hannity warned viewers that evidence is coming that will ‘rock the foundation of Washington, D.C.’
HANNITY: “Alright, so we’re going to go slow. What we have been reporting on night after night for over a year now is turning into a scandal bigger than Watergate and here’s why this is all so alarming. All the information we have been telling you about so far is only a sample of what’s to come. It’s the tip of the iceberg. Now these facts, this evidence, will rock the foundation of Washington, D.C. It will make you question how is it possible this could ever happen in the United States of America.”
In a Fox News op-ed Tuesday, media icon Sean Hannity expanded on his Monday night monologue, warning the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ‘second memo exposing Deep State corruption,’ should ‘scare,’ the American people.
Senators Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham have released a heavily redacted, yet very revealing copy of their criminal referral against ex-British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the dubious dossier we now know was parlayed into a FISA warrant by Trump-hating operatives at the Justice Department. Grassley and Graham tell us that, while working on a second dossier for Clinton opposition research firm Fusion GPS, Steele was being fed information directly from the Obama State Department and from Clinton allies as well as his usual, sketchy Russian sources. That’s right, teams Clinton and Obama were working with a foreign spy to undermine then-candidate Donald Trump. […]
The Grassley-Graham memo goes on to say “it’s troubling enough that the Clinton campaign funded Mr. Steele’s work, but [worse] that these Clinton associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele’s allegations. It raises huge additional concerns about his credibility.” […]
You should be scared. And disgusted.
In a letter released Monday, Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) outed the FBI for attempting to suppress the release of new revelations about the Steele dossier.
In the same letter, Grassley and Graham say that Steele, penned a separate memo on then-candidate Donald Trump, based on information given to him by a Hillary Clinton contact and unnamed Obama State Department official.
According to Fox News’ Ed Henry, the memo suggests Steele misrepresented his findings to the FBI.
“The Grassley memo tonight now goes on to say that in fact the FBI then went back after learning that Christopher Steele misrepresented things and did talk to the media–the FBI never disclosed that to the FISA court and kept going back for renewals of the surveillance warrant and didn’t say to the court look things have changed, we no longer think he’s reliable–he lied to us and spoke to the media,” reported Henry.

The Senate Judiciary Committee’s criminal referral of Steele states the former British intelligence agent misled the bureau about his connections to Yahoo News and Mother Jones, despite initially claiming he had no contact with the media.
