When I first saw this I thought it had to be a joke, but nope.
Courtesy of The Independent:
Hannity was mentioned in the investigation into the president by both the former Ukrainian Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and George Kent, a State Department Deputy Assistant Secretary who oversees the eastern-European country.
Both said in separate hearings that the state department reached out to Mr. Hannity after it was claimed on his show that Ms. Yovanovitch had “bad mouthed the president” – an unproven allegation that preceded her early dismissal.
Mr. Kent told the inquiry: “I believe, to the best of my recollection, the counselor for the Department, UIrich Brechbuhl, reached out and suggested to Mr. Hannity that if there was no proof of the allegations, that he should stop covering them.”
His comments in an interview last month corroborate claims from Ms. Yovanovitch released earlier this week. In her own testimony she described being told secretary of State Mike Pompeo might reach out to the Fox News host personally over the claims.
Hannity has now strongly denied the claim, writing on Twitter that Mr. Kent’s testimony was “More lies & Fake news”.
“I never ever spoke to Sec Pompeo or anyone else at the State Dept. about Ukraine” he wrote. “I’ve never even heard the names of the people mentioned from State.
“Also, I never talked to anyone in Ukraine. I don’t know anybody there.”
He added: “Here is a Warning, you have all been told the truth AGAIN!! I STRONGLY ADVISE ALL OF YOU TO STOP LYING ABOUT ME”.
First off the irony that Sean Hannity is upset that somebody is lying is so rich it should be made into a chocolate cake.
And secondly there is this.
The rest of the statements about Sean Hannity are harder to prove, but let’s be honest, does ANYBODY think this guy tells the truth about ANYTHING?
And if he wants to clear his name so badly perhaps he should volunteer to testify before the impeachment inquiry under oath.
I mean, if he has nothing to hide that is.
