Fox News host Sean Hannity, who has often claimed to be pro-law enforcement, told his radio show audience on Dec. 5 not to talk toe FBI.
Hannity was upset by the FBI’s lawful role in the lawful investigation of Trump’s collusion with Russia, which is headed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, notes Media Matters:
If you’re like me, and you were — grew up to revere an FBI agent, and the FBI comes to your house, and maybe some crime took place in the neighborhood, and maybe you have a little bit of information, but you don’t quite fully recall everything, but you’re pretty sure you do — the advice I have to give you now is, “don’t talk to the FBI.”
How awful is that? Because we want to help our FBI, because we want to help them solve crimes. We’re good people, we play by the rules, we obey the laws in the country, we pay our taxes…
That’s all that they want to fixate on, which is all redacted, and it’s all speculation, and I don’t think anything of what we’re hearing is true, because it just — none of it makes sense, but they get to jump the gun, because they want this all to — they want everybody to believe Donald Trump was colluding with the Russians.
