During the March 19 edition of his radio show, Sean Hannity falsely claimed that “maybe many Americans” had believed “there were two hookers in a Moscow Ritz-Carlton, Donald Trump room at the time, and they were urinating in his bed,” and “probably didn’t vote for Trump because of that.” Hannity continued, arguing “That’s election interference, using bought and paid for Russian lies. How does that not become a part of the Mueller -- the Mueller investigation?”:

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Now, what did they do with the dossier? Well, they spread it like wildfire, we learned -- what, 12 different news agencies, different reporters, and it was disseminated, and to the American people, so that -- maybe many Americans actually believe there were two hookers in a Moscow Ritz-Carlton, Donald Trump’s room at the time, and they were urinating in his bed.

And some people believed that, probably didn’t vote for Trump because of that. Well, that’s election interference, using bought and paid for Russian lies. How does that not become a part of the Mueller -- the Mueller investigation?

Unfortunately for Hannity, Election Day was on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, and the “pee tape” rumor became public knowledge when Buzzfeed published the Steele Dossier on January 10, 2017 -- 63 days later. One part of the dossier is even dated December 13, 2016 -- after the election.

Hannity’s laughable conspiracy theory is one of many convoluted attacks on the “pee tape” rumor, previously provided by Rush Limbaugh, Jesse Watters, and Mark Levin. Hannity has mentioned this rumor repeatedly on his Fox News show, in an attempt to discredit the various investigations into Trump and his associates.
