Hannity Advises Mueller Witnesses: ‘Bash’ Your Phones ‘With a Hammer’

Sean Hannity raised eyebrows on Wednesday night by doling out advice to witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller‘s probe, based on how Hillary Clinton handled her email investigation: destroy your phones.

In an opening monologue on the Mueller “witch hunt,” the Fox News host noted investigators in the probe are “demanding that witnesses turn in their phones.”

“He wants the phones turned over,” Hannity said. “Even texts that are on what are called encrypted apps, like Whatsapp or Signal.”

Hannity then recalled Clinton’s efforts to destroy her cell phones and erase her emails during the investigation into her private email server.

“Maybe Mueller’s witnesses, I don’t know, if I advised them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead,” Hannity opined. “Delete all your emails, and then acid wash the emails and hard drives on your phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer into little itsy bitsy pieces, use BleachBit, remove the sim cards.”

“And then take the pieces and hand it over to Robert Mueller and say, ‘Hillary Rodham Clinton, this is equal justice under the law,'” he added.

“How do you think that would work out for everybody who Mueller’s demanding their phones of tonight?” Hannity asked. “I’m certain the result would not be the same as Hillary’s.”
