Adam Schiff Vows to Go After Trump 'Adviser' Sean Hannity
Anti-Trump Democrat says Jan 6 Committee will call Fox News host to testify
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has vowed that his partisan House Select Committee on the Capitol riot will go after Fox News host Sean Hannity, who the Democrat congressman claims is an "adviser" to President Donald Trump.
Schiff made the announcement during a Tuesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Hallie Jackson Reports.”
Schiff said his anti-Trump Committee will call Hannity to testify because he was a "campaigner" for Trump.
Jackson said, “Congressman, I know I have to let you go, but this literally just popped into my e-mail from Axios reporting the January 6 Select Committee is preparing to ask Sean Hannity, Fox News host, for his voluntary testimony.”
"I would be remiss journalistic if I didn’t ask you since sitting in front of me?" she asked.
"Is that the expectation? Are you looking for information or cooperation from Mr. Hannity?”
"Yes," Schiff responded.
"I think you’ll see an announcement about that very soon.
"You know, we believe that he was texting with the chief of staff and that he has information that would be relative to our committee.
"He was more than a Fox host.
"He was also a confidant, adviser, campaigner for the former president.
"I would hope that, if asked by the committee, as in fact, he will be very soon, he would cooperate with us."
"That’s a voluntary request?" Jackson asked.
"Just so I’m clear on that?”
Schiff replied, “That’s my understanding, and you’ll get confirmation soon.
"We are making voluntary requests that he speak with the committee.”
