SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Where does this end if all of these conflicts are ignored, if all of these instances of real crimes -- Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton -- are ignored, then where does this all end up?

JAY SEKULOW: Well, for the good of the republic it's got to end up within the framework of the Constitution, which means you've raised -- I mean, you've raised some very significant and real issues. And that means if you've got, I think the James Comey matter for instance, has to be looked at. I would do it through a grand jury. Impanel a grand jury and say, “What went on here? Why did he think it was OK to give this information out? Why did he think it was OK to leak it to The New York Times, to a professor who leaked it to the New York Times? Why did he think it was OK for him to do this with the intent of drawing a special counsel? Why is that OK?” And again, the special counsel has been established, but the idea that this was drawn out this way raises serious issues. And then you go back to what we've been talking about for a year and a half. It's not even fair to say it's a double standard -- it's like a quadruple standard here, of what's going on. But Sean, at the end of the day, we have to remember what's at stake, and that is the constitutional republic.
