On Friday night, Sean Hannity kicked off his show by addressing a Wall Street Journal report regarding a potential ‘deal’ in the works between Special Counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump‘s legal team.
According to the report, Trump’s lawyers are using the prospect of an interview with the president as “leverage to spur a conclusion to the Russia investigation.”
The president’s legal team is considering telling Mr. Mueller that Mr. Trump would agree to a sit-down interview based on multiple considerations, including that the special counsel commit to a date for concluding at least the Trump-related portion of the investigation. One idea is to suggest a deadline of 60 days from the date of the interview, the person said.
Well, the Fox News host interpreted the report as a good sign that this “witch hunt” is coming to a close.
“Now White House sources––they’re pushing back on some aspects of the story, but here is what we are being told at this hour. Negotiations underway on how the president will be questioned by the special counsel, Robert Mueller. And they are close to now determining what is going to happen,” Hannity said. “My interpretation of all of this, it means this witch hunt could finally be wrapping up because the president would be the last person that Mueller would want to talk to. And by the way, to me, that means that a conclusion is probably coming soon and that would mean, yeah, Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians.”
