Sean Hannity Confirms He Spoke To George Zimmerman, Agreed Not To Report On Conversation

Sean Hannity Confirms He Spoke To George Zimmerman

On his show Tuesday night, Sean Hannity directly addressed the elephant in the room: the chatter about George Zimmerman having an off-the-record conversation with Hannity, without going through any representation. Hannity said he did speak to Zimmerman, but agreed not to report on it. “That’s it,” he said, adding that he knows nothing about Zimmerman’s relationship with his ex-lawyers.

Before continuing with his segment about the case, Hannity wanted to set the record straight:

One of the reasons cited in the press conference was an alleged conversation that George Zimmerman had with me. Before we continue tonight, I want to set the record straight about a couple of things. Now, for a few weeks we have been pursuing an interview with Mr. Zimmerman to give him a chance to tell his side of the story. Yesterday, I was contacted by an individual we believe was George Zimmerman. He reached out to me and we spoke on the phone about his case, and I agreed not to report on the contents of that conversation. That’s it. I know nothing about his relationship with his now former attorneys.

Getting that out of the way, he commenced his discussion about the case.
