SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Everybody that I know that knows William Barr says straight arrow, William Barr is going to do his job.
If he does his job, Sara, he has to go back to Hillary. He has to go back to a rigged investigation. He has to go back to the crime she committed. He has to go to the FISA that everybody was warned about, the dossier, what lies were told, the FISA judges, correct?
SARA CARTER: Correct, and Sean, there is nobody else to actually have an investigation conducted on any of this, but William Barr. Remember, the final say is going to be the Department of Justice. Congress can only do so much, but without the Department of Justice actually opening up an investigation, without William Barr, all of this goes nowhere. We absolutely have to have an investigation.
CARTER: Sean, what we're seeing was a silent coup, and if the Department of Justice doesn't open an investigation into this, then it will be a disservice to the American people.
HANNITY: No, it's even worse than that. It will be a shredding of the Constitution, and the end of the rule of law as we know it, and due process, and equal justice and application of our laws. I hope the new Attorney General understands how significant and serious this all is. Go back to the beginning. It's got to start there.
