Furious Sean Hannity loses it in caps-lock rant against accuser: ‘I will fight every single lie’

Published

on

Fox News host Sean Hannity lost it after accusations he tried to pressure frequent show guest Debbie Schlussel into coming to his hotel room.

In a statement, Hannity called the woman “a serial harasser.”

“LET ME BE CLEAR THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual ARE 100 percent false and a complete fabrication,” Hannity explained. “This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.”

He claimed Schlussel has slandered him over the years as a desperate need for attention, “including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric.”

“My patience with this individual is over,” Hannity continued. “I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.”

Hannity’s statement comes just days after Schlussel accused Hannity of “creepy” actions but came short of describing it as outright sexual harassment. She described an incident in which Hannity had her stand beside him at a book signing and invited him back to his hotel room after the event. When she refused, saying she had to get ready for the show, she claimed she was never booked again.

Hannity called the attack on him part of “coordinated effort afoot to silence those with conservative views.”

Fox has faced multiple accusations of sexual harassment and many allege there is a culture of harassment at the network. So far, such accusations have brought down head Roger Ailes and Bill O’Reilly, cost the network $83 million in settlements and buyouts, prompted a federal investigation and resulted in lead female hosts leaving the network.

“I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American,” Hannity swore.

Giuliani can’t whine about ‘fair play’ when his boss is denying electoral fairness to the American people: columnist

Published

on

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani has been raging against the impeachment investigation that came about, in large part, due to his own behavior. On Tuesday, he wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal lamenting that the impeachment process is "unprecedented, constitutionally questionable, and an affront to American fair play."

As Danielle Allen wrote for the Washington Post on Wednesday, Giuliani wanting to talk about "fair play" is a rich proposition.

Trump made a ‘huge mistake’ talking to reporters about impeachment: Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissmann

Published

on

One of former special counsel Robert Mueller's top prosecutors explained on MSNBC how President Donald Trump made a "huge mistake" on Wednesday.

Andrew Weissmann, who is now an MSNBC legal analyst, was interviewed by Chuck Todd on "Meet the Press Daily."

The former federal prosecutor says Trump committed a blunder by denying a call with a Gordon Sondland staffer.

"Why is that?" Todd asked.

"Because he now can’t rebut it," Weissman replied.

"He has now said I don’t remember that phone call. So you’re going to have Sondland testifying to it. You’re going to have a staffer testifying to it," he explained. "If [Trump] doesn’t like their testimony, he’s going to have to say, 'Oh, now I remember that I didn’t say that.'"

Republicans want Americans to believe Trump cared deeply — about something he never mentioned

Published

on

One of the main points made by Republicans during the House hearings on the impeachment claimed that President Donald Trump cared so deeply about corruption in Ukraine that he was holding back the funding. It wasn't bribery because it was all about legitimate foreign policy, according to Trump and the Republicans in Congress.

Their greatest problem is that Trump has never held back speaking out about something he cared for. As the Washington Post noted, the argument doesn't stand up.
