Well, according to recent news, it looks as if the unraveling of Fox News host Sean Hannity is officially upon us.
First, it was revealed that, while dishonestly reporting on the Trump-Cohen scandal, he secretly used Cohen for personal legal advice. Next, we learned that Hannity was involved in an ugly and potentially illegal plot between Cohen and Stormy Daniels’ former attorney. Then, to top it all off while on-air Wednesday night, he absolutely lost his mind and called for Trump-Russia witnesses to begin destroying any and all evidence they may have in their possession.
This is exactly what is to be expected from someone who, with the revelation of the latest Michael Cohen news, realizes he is now going to be called as a material witness before the courts. Also, it probably didn’t help matters any when he learned that a separate report had also been released indicating various Trump-Russia witnesses have started turning their phones in to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Based on his on-air rant, it almost seemed as if he believed his phone would be next.
If you missed it, here’s what Sean Hannity said while on-air: “Maybe Mueller’s witnesses… I don’t know. If I advised them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead, delete all your emails, and then acid wash the emails and the hard drives on the phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer into little itsy bitsy pieces, use bleach pit, remove the SIM cards, and then take the pieces and hand it over to Robert Mueller, and say ‘Hillary Rodham Clinton, this is equal justice under the law.’”
And there you have it, folks: Proof that the man has derailed and gone completely over the edge. Actively encouraging Trump-Russia witnesses to destroy evidence, when he himself is a witness, is not a wise move and sends a bad message. What he doesn’t seem to understand here is that what he is describing is obstruction of justice and potentially a felony, and when all is said and done, could result in an indictment and arrest.
