SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I do remember Michael saying it publicly and saying to me at the time that, in fact, he never told the president about this, that it was something that he had a pretty wide discretion on his own to handle matters without bringing it to his attention. And it might seem unusual for most people but if you’re a billionaire, I guess it’s not.
SARA CARTER: Yeah, I guess it’s not. I think one of the bigger question here is this sense of mission creep by the special counsel, by Robert Mueller and these tactics. Listening to both Joe DiGenova and David Schoen talk about this, there’s a real sense of concern here about how far they’re willing to go, what they’re willing to do and what type of documents they’re willing to collect. Remember, there’s attorney client privilege documents that you would think would be protected and now you’re saying to yourself well maybe these aren’t being protected.
This appears to be another move by the special counsel to garner attention, to shift back over to them, to continue this mission creep, to find whatever they need to find on the president or on anyone else associated with the president and really for the last 15 months have held this administration hostage.
HANNITY: The one thing I think that I agree with Sara whole heartedly on with, Joe, is the idea of mission creep but more importantly this opens up an area where it seems that there’s no limit at all into the fishing expedition that Mueller is now engaged in and if he has access to everything that his personal attorney has, I can only imagine where that’s going to lead.
