Fox News personality Sean Hannity undermined the neoconservative push for war with Iran on Saturday.


Former Donald Trump National Security Advisor John Bolton has been among the neocon voices urging a "preemptive strike" military attack on Iran.

But Hannity, who has reportedly been described by White House advisors as Trump's "shadow" chief of staff, argued on Saturday that the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh had put the country's nuclear program "on hold" -- undermining the case for an attack.
