Sean Hannity instantly faceplants after accusing NBC News of ignoring Clinton conspiracy theory

Published

on

Sean Hannity challenged NBC News to “read and learn” about the Uranium One deal he claims the network won’t cover — by linking to an NBC News report about the Uranium One deal.

The Fox News host has been hyping claims that Hillary Clinton should be investigated or even prosecuted in connection with a 2010 transaction approved by the Obama administration involving Russia’s state atomic energy company.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered Justice Department prosecutors to ask FBI agents to explain the evidence uncovered in a now-dormant criminal investigation of the Uranium One deal, which went through while Clinton was secretary of state.

“Hey fake news @CNN and conspiracy tv @NBCNews read and learn,” Hannity jeered on his Twitter account.

The story Hannity linked to, however, was reported by NBC News and posted on the network’s website.

CNN has not yet reported on Sessions reviving the investigation, but both networks have covered the investigation and Republican efforts to accuse Clinton of wrongdoing.

Clinton has denied playing any role in the State Department approving the sale, and the State Department official who signed off has said the former Cabinet secretary did not intervene.

‘Hard to overstate’ how badly Taylor’s testimony damaged Trump: Ex-federal prosecutor

Published

on

On Wednesday, former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti wrote for Politico Magazine that the testimony of Ukraine envoy William Taylor was devastating for President Donald Trump — and that if he keeps trying to deny wrongdoing, it will only get worse and maybe even force Senate Republicans' hand against him.

"It’s hard to overstate how much damage the testimony of Ukraine envoy William Taylor inflicted on President Donald Trump’s defense in the ongoing impeachment inquiry," wrote Mariotti. "On its face, Taylor’s testimony Tuesday established the quid pro quo that Trump has denied for weeks. But more importantly, Taylor’s detailed notes of the 'highly irregular' policy-making that he witnessed over the summer provide a roadmap to future testimony that could be even more harmful. Republicans have already begun to retreat from their 'no quid pro quo' line, but they will have to keep retreating because Taylor has almost single-handedly decimated the few witnesses who have provided some testimony that is favorable to Trump."

On Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) appeared to have reached the limit of his capacity to defend his own party when a gang of House Republicans raided a sensitive, compartmented information facility where an impeachment hearing was taking place and illegally bringing in recording equipment.
