It is not enough for many Democrats to go after President Donald Trump work to destroy his presidency.
Many of them want to go after everyone that is close to him and now that includes Fox News host Sean Hannity, CNN reported.
A member of House Democratic leadership says it may be time to hear from Fox News host Sean Hannity — under oath.
Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline, who chairs the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, said that Hannity’s latest comments suggest he has information about hush money payments made by Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to keep the then-presidential candidate’s alleged extramarital affairs quiet in the days before the 2016 election. Trump later reimbursed Cohen for those payments.
“Sean Hannity volunteered first-hand knowledge about Michael Cohen’s actions last night,” Francis Grubar, a spokesman for Cicilline told CNN.
“If he was lying, it wouldn’t be the first time. This is the same guy who claimed inside knowledge that Russia didn’t hack the DNC until a federal judge ordered him to stop.
“Regardless, if he feels he has information that’s relevant to this investigation, he should share it under oath before Congress,” Grubar said.
On his television program Thursday night, Hannity told Trump that Cohen told him “at least a dozen times” that “he made the decision on the payments — and he didn’t tell you.”
Are Democrats getting desperate?
“He told me that personally,” Hannity said to Trump.
The comment prompted Cicilline — a member of the influential House Judiciary Committee — to tweet Thursday: “Sean Hannity is now volunteering himself as a witness. I look forward to his testimony.”
