Hannity: “Nothing's going to satisfy these people. Why bother? They don't have to release a thing”

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Number one, the attorney general doesn't have to, because Democrats wanted it this way. After the Clinton-Starr report, they changed the independent counsel law. And people like Jerry Nadler never wanted Starr's report out in the first place, now demanding and subpoenaing, and “We have the right to grand jury material” -- no, you don't. No, you don't.

And the authority you gave to the Department of Justice and the AG -- what I don't understand, the president is now beginning to realize too, that nothing's going to satisfy these people. Why bother? They don't have to release a thing. Now, the president too can exert, and I recommend he does, executive privilege.


Now, from my perspective, I think all of this needs to be gone over, and I think the president has a right to exert executive privilege, and if I was him, I would. I don't care what the fake news media thinks anymore.
