Sean Hannity Spins Durham Probe Acquittal, Says ‘I Never Really Cared That Much’
Fox News presenter Sean Hannity on Tuesday tried to extract some good news from the acquittal of Igor Danchenko in the last case of special counsel John Durham, in part by minimizing his own past focus on profile researcher Steele.
“Many people think this is a loss for Durham,” Hannity said after a judge found Danchenko not guilty of four counts of lying to the FBI. The work of Durham, the Trump-era prosecutor tasked with investigating the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s links to Russia, has had no convict results. In May, Hillary Clinton’s campaign attorney, Michael Sussmann was also acquitted lie to the FBI.
“I never really cared much for Igor Danchenko,” Hannity asserts. “What we learned during the trial is what matters more to me.”
Hannity, who in May 2020 wonder about it “The great republic of America will fall apart before your eyes” if Durham’s team does not bring “justice”, has brought Danchenko to the attention of several times, such as in August 2020 and in November 2021 on Twitter.
On Tuesday, the Fox host insisted there were still unanswered questions.
“Will we ever get to the bottom of any of this?” he asks Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) as one chyron labeled Danchenko as “a bad actor in a deep state”. “Are all the people who signed this FISA order filled with information they know is unverified — will they be held accountable or do we have a permanent two-tier justice system?”
Johnson responded with the extravagant claim that Danchenko and Sussman were acquitted “because the jury found the FBI to be more corrupt in what they did.”
“We need to get into this,” demanded Johnson, who was accused in the Senate debate against Wisconsin Governor Mandela Barnes last week. The FBI set him up in a meeting in 2020.
