SEAN HANNITY (HOST): And another fact that proves that President Trump has nothing to hide, according to reports the White House has voluntarily now, they’ve handed over 20,000 pages to Robert Mueller and his band of merry Democrat donors, you know, like Andrew Weisman and the rest of them.  Mueller has collected a whopping, get this, 1.4 million pages of documents from the Trump campaign and their investigation. That's not something you are going to hear from the mainstream media. That's called transparency. Now tonight, for example, they're trying to change the story. At this hour The New York Times is trying to distract you. They have a story Trump wanted Mueller fired sometime last June and our sources, and I've checked in with many of them, they're not confirming that tonight. The president's attorney dismissed the story and says no, no comment. We're not going there. How many times has the New York Times gotten it wrong?
