Hannity Goes After Obama for ‘Dereliction of Duty’ on Russia: ‘Start Talking’

Sean Hannity parroted President Trump on Monday night by going after Barack Obama for not taking greater action against Russia during his presidency.

While Trump continues to gloss over the news about the 13 Russian nationals Robert Mueller indicted for their 2016 election interference, Hannity blasted Obama and accused the former president of doing nothing to stop foreign meddling in American institutions. Hannity made his point while highlighting remarks where Obama scolded Trump in 2016 as the mogul threatened not to accept the results of the election if he lost.

“Really Barack Obama? He owes you, the American people tonight, an explanation,” Hannity said. “How did he not know what he was warned in 2014? That sounds like a dereliction of duty. So it’s time for President Obama to start talking, maybe under oath.”

From there, Hannity proceeded to harp on the “corrupt,” biased news media while making the case that the only Russia “collusion conspiracy theory” involved Hillary Clinton, the Fusion GPS dossier, and the Obama-era Uranium One deal. He also accused the media of ignoring the parts of Rod Rosenstein‘s press conference in which the Deputy Attorney General said no Americans were knowingly involved in Russian efforts to swing the election.

It does bear mention that Mueller’s collusion investigation is still in effect.
