SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Leading into the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats' endless investigations, the hate Trump agenda is now hitting literally psychotic levels of derangement. Look, their job was to be a public servant. But they have now made it their full-time stated mission and purpose to try and batter, bloody, and bludgeon this president at all costs. To either impeach or try to make President Trump unelectable in 2020. The issue of serving you, we the people, doesn't factor into a single part of their agenda, as to what they're publically announcing.
We the people will now be subject to what will be the biggest, most gruesome display of modern-day McCarthyism, which is just the widest fishing expedition, all in an effort to destroy the president and anybody who supports him. Because the bottom line is all they care about is getting their power back so they can institute socialism right here in this country. Instead of just admitting the truth that they've been lying to you, they announced the launch of the broadest and most sweeping witch hunt into simultaneously basically every aspect of the president's life: his businesses, his finance, and every single thing he has done as a candidate and as president. All designed to create a false narrative about who this president is. They'll never talk about the success, they played no part in it. Now it's on full display.
The whole strategy is about battering, harrassing, making insinuations about the president and his allies under heavy legal cost and nothing to do with seeking truth. They're just hoping that something, anything -- they're going to throw everything up against the wall and hope something, someplace, somewhere sticks. They'll throw out every wild conspiracy theory possible.
