SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I watch you every day and I watched you today, and all the focus was, “Well, you told us in 2017 that the president had nothing to do with the comments of Don Jr.” And I'm thinking, “Well, every report shows that what the president said, that the Magnitsky Act, or the fact that the meeting was all about -- and all the emails prove it to be about talking about adoption,” that the fact is, that at the end of that report is, they told the truth. Isn't that the bigger picture that is missed tonight?

SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS: Certainly that is one of the big things missed tonight, but I think the biggest story that's being missed tonight, and I saw it today in that room, they asked me 100 questions on the fake witch hunt that they have been fixated on for these last 500 days, but they forgot to mention the things that Americans actually care about, like the booming economy.
