SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I know a lot of you on Twitter you're like alright, release the memo. Here is what I've heard about the memo, let me tell you what my sources are telling me. There was a letter that was signed by, let's see, [Congressmen Bob] Goodlatte, Devin Nunes, and Trey Gowdy, that was going to be hand delivered to the Department of Justice. Then the Republican Party in caucus session decided, apparently unanimously, that no, we're not going to the Department of Justice, we're investigating the Department of Justice, we're investigating what has gone on here, especially in light of the Strzok-Page memos, and the missing critical five months we've got here.
Now, forensic people, really smart people, are telling me there are ways to recover this. It took two years to get Lois Lerner's emails back. But the reason they're covering up is because what you have is an attempted coup, what you have is an attempt to allow the tools of intelligence, those powerful tools, to be used to influence a presidential election, coupled with a bought-and-paid-for phony Russian propaganda dossier. And then it was used, also, in the court system, to spy on a presidential opposition party, an opposition candidate, and an incoming administration and a president-elect. This makes Watergate look like stealing a Snickers bar from your local candy store. It's that big, it's that corrupt, it's that deep, it's that profound. It should be to everybody, and I don't care if you're a liberal, conservative, Republican, Democrat, libertarian, you should care. They've shredded the Constitution, they've shredded the Fourth Amendment, and the deep state thought they knew better than the American people. Now it's coming -- America's chickens are coming home to roost.
