Fox News’ Sean Hannity has long been known to be a supporter of President Donald Trump. Now, in response to a report from The Washington Post that claims President Trump is under investigation for obstruction of justice, Hannity has called on Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to resign from their posts.
Hannity said on Fox News Wednesday evening:
‘Mueller and Rod Rosenstein? Recuse themselves, resign immediately.’
According to Hannity, Mueller has a conflict of interest himself, regarding his relationship with former FBI Director James Comey, which warrants his resignation.
‘Robert Mueller, this guy has more conflicts of interest than, by the way, that we can count on this show, which are also violations of federal law. Mueller and Comey have been close friends for a long time. Comey admitted he leaked the memo to the New York Times, to the press, hoping it would bring about a special counsel which, by the way, turned out to be his best buddy, his BFF Robert Mueller.’
Robert Mueller, former head of the Justice Department, was tapped as Special Counsel to lead the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, after Trump fired Comey in May.
Hannity’s went on to dismiss the validity of the Post‘s report, saying it’s “once again citing anonymous sources as if they haven’t been wrong enough recently.”
