SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Would this throw out -- does this -- let me ask both of you a quick legal question, before I go back to Sara. Does this now make a strong, compelling, and the definitive case that the Mueller probe -- and I always said look at the -- you know, Clinton donors that he hires, and he couldn't find one independent to put on his team? Any team that would put Andrew Weissmann on it, with his atrocious track record, was always suspicious.
But he also put this Trump-hater Peter Strzok on it, who we know the fix was in for Hillary, then he began with enthusiasm, as evidenced by the text message I just put up there. Does this now taint the entire Mueller investigation, and should it be suspended as of tomorrow by the Attorney General, and by Rod Rosenstein, who I also have big problems with tonight?
GREGG JARRETT: Absolutely, because Peter Strzok, Lisa Page and now we learned today yet another FBI lawyer was involved in all three of these -- the Clinton email case, the Trump-Russia collusion case and the special counsel probe, and it taints it all.
HANNITY: Real quick answer here, Judge.
JEANINE PIRRO: And, Sean, what have you here is -- is someone was anti-candidate Trump, anti-President Trump, and now is in a position where he jumps on Mueller's team to deep 6 Trump. Any judge worth his or her salt would dismiss a case like this in a second --
HANNITY: They better --
PIRRO: And it is time for Jeff Sessions to put on his big boy pants, and do what he is supposed to do, as the Attorney General of the United States of America -- or else don't, you know, don't hold that position.
