SEAN HANNITY (HOST): This sounds like a soft coup, revenge taken out on a president.
GREGG JARRETT: There's this new evidence and three witnesses that in an act of vengeance for the firing of [FBI Director James] Comey, he's trying to secretly record the president of the United States and depose him in the equivalent of a palace coup.
HANNITY: Do you agree with the characterization, because I agree with Gregg, I believe this was an attempt to literally set a president up for a soft coup.
SARA CARTER: One hundred percent, Sean. There is overwhelming evidence, not just circumstantial anymore, we've seen it in writing, we've seen it with testimony that's been provided to congress. This was a white coup, a silent coup, a bloodless coup.
