SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Now, former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova is encouraging every one of these witnesses, some 80-plus witnesses just to start, to go in and plead the fifth.
Why would anybody ever want to be a part of this circus and what is clearly a perjury trap -- hiring a known conspiracy theorist, lying Adam Schiff. Where are the so-called news outlets covering this?
Now look -- look at this, even former Obama top aide David Axelrod gets it, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- they're warning Democrats that they are now headed down a dangerous path and clearly abusing their power. Axelrod warning, guess what, it looks like a witch hunt. Bloomberg warning, this lurch leftward -- leftward -- is not going to end well for the Democrats.
And Democrats are now literally grasping at straws, unhinged, motivated by one thing: hating Trump, every second, minute, hour of every day, just like their friends in the media mob.
