Fox News host Sean Hannity, who is said to talk to President Donald Trump on a daily basis, on Monday asserted that not prosecuting Hillary Clinton over her email server was “biggest abuse of power in the history of this country.”
A tweet from the president on Monday advised viewers to tune in to Fox & Friends for a special appearance by Hannity.

The Fox News host and presidential confidante revealed that he “expects” criminal charges against fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Hannity espoused a complicated conspiracy theory that he said proved Clinton was the only person who colluded with Russia in the 2016 campaign. And he railed against former FBI Director James Comey for refusing to prosecute Clinton over her unauthorized email server.
“The only way that I can characterize this — it is the biggest abuse of power in the history of this country,” he opined. “For James Comey, when you have so many crimes that Hillary committed… If you were trying to prevent congressional oversight and you broke the law and you put a server that we now know was hacked by at least five or six outside foreign entities.”
Hannity continued: “If you put it outside of where it’s supposed to be, mishandle it with classified, top secret and special access program information, those emails get subpoenaed. You don’t have the right to delete 33,000 of them at that point. And if you did, you’d be arrested.”
