SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let's preview what is about to go down tomorrow in our nation's swamp. So, while the president is here in Vietnam, the president's former attorney Michael Cohen is going to testify in public. Three days in a row, one, two, three. Okay?
Tomorrow is the only public one, before the House Oversight Committee. He's going to be grilled by some of the worst Trump-haters like Ocasio-Cortez, Congresswoman Tlaib, and others. Now, keep in mind, among other issues, Michael Cohen did plead guilty, lying to Congress, wasn't long ago that prominent Democrats hated Michael Cohen, called him out repeatedly for being a liar. Now, they're his best friend.
HANNITY: So, now Michael Cohen is the Democrats' new best friend forever. Sadly, he is going to report to prison in May, to serve a multi-year sentence. And you know what?
He and his family have been through an awful lot, frankly, Hell, and Democrats, in my opinion, are just shamefully using him as a political prop, not to learn anything new, but once again to bludgeon President Trump, to make him look bad, while he's in the middle of high-stakes historic negotiations abroad here in Vietnam to keep the world safer.
Whatever happened to politics ending at the water's edge? You know, it is a pretty heartless act by a group of people just blinded by all things Trump. And as of for tomorrow, as a kangaroo court plays out on Capitol Hill, President Trump is going to be fighting for America's interest abroad, flying 25 hours to try and make the world a safer place.
