SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Why are they not so outraged about Hillary paying for Russian lies, disinformation, Comey generously using the unverifiable data from Russia to spy on the Trump campaign, again, a FISA warrant. No doubt, by the way, this will all get another round of fake, phony, moral selective outrage over that interview, but it's the perfect set-up because if they're outraged about that, then how can you not be outraged over what I just said?

Of course, that's all to be expected. In many ways that was a genius set-up because the media mob will fall right into his trap breathlessly spewing fake, phony outrage over a non-story for days. We'll be showing you the tape this time tomorrow night ignoring the real abuse of power that took place in 2016 and the real Russian dossier that was bought and paid for and then used as a basis to spy on the Trump campaign.
