SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Politicially speaking, won't the country explode if Jeff Sessions is out? I mean, look, I understand the president's frustration about the recusal. I don’t believe Jeff Sessions, if he knew he was going to recuse himself, he never should have taken the position because without that recusal, none of this happens.
GREGG JARRETT: He betrayed the president. He knew when he was sworn in he was going to recuse himself because he testified that the very next day he put the recusal in motion. He never told the president about that and by the way, he cited the regulation of his recusal, he cited the wrong law. It didn't apply to his recusal.
HANNITY: What about the political fallout, Sara, if he did that?
SARA CARTER: Well you know, I don’t know if we’d see massive political fallout here.
