Fox host and Trump enthusiast Sean Hannity allowed Newt Gingrich to take his private jet to a meeting with Donald Trump, CNN reports.
The Fox News host flew the former House speaker to Indianapolis early Wednesday morning to meet with the Republican nominee as he holds late-stage meetings with his VP finalists, the sources said.
Both Hannity and a Fox News spokesperson did not comment about the flight. Gingrich did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Gingrich, who is reportedly one of the finalists for the VP slot on Trump’s ticket, was a paid Fox contributor until Tuesday, when the network and elected to suspend their agreement in order “to avoid all conflicts of interest that may arise” from Gingrich’s Veep prospects.
For his part, Hannity has consistently been one of the most outspoken of Trump’s media cheerleaders. He is also a fervent supporter of Gingrich as Trump’s VP. “I wouldn’t be happy with anyone but Newt,” he said on his show.
Trump will reportedly make a VP announcement this week.
