SEAN HANNITY (HOST): How do we get to the bottom of all of this and for those people that did commit crimes, did purposely mislead a court, those that involved in wanting to spy on opposition party candidates in an election year and willing to lie to get there, what should happen to these people?

JAY SEKULOW: Well number one, I really think this is where you have to have a special counsel. If there’s ever a justification for a special counsel, this would be it. This goes to the heart of FBI and the Department of Justice including its leadership.

HANNITY: Who should appoint that, Jeff Sessions?

SEKULOW: Yes.
