Hannity promotes fringe conspiracy theory that reporters were paid to report on Trump-Russia dossier

From the November 8 edition of Premiere Radio Networks' The Sean Hannity Show:

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): There was a Rowan Scarborough piece that actually suggested that Fusion GPS may have actually paid media people to run with these lies. Hopefully we'll get to the bottom of that. But here's a question I have: Is there any chance -- because John Solomon and Sara Carter first broke the story that there were warrants of Trump Tower. There was surveillance of Trump Tower. 

JAY SEKULOW: Well, I mean --

HANNITY: Well, here's my question: Did they use the phony Russian dossier information, the lies that she paid for, as a predicate or a premise and go and use those lies before a judge to get a warrant? And if they did, what would happen?


Hannity conspiracy theory: Christopher Steele paid Russians “to give false stories about Donald Trump, with hookers in the Ritz”

Hannity: Trump's legal team “think that this meeting could have been a setup made to give the appearance of Russian collusion”

Contra right-wing media, US officials have verified core aspects of the Trump dossier
