Sean. Hannity called out House Democrats on Tuesday night for continuing with their impeachment push against President Trump — and praised the president for fighting back with a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“They have now decided that a toxic political stunt is obviously more important than the rule of law, our constitutional republic, basic fairness to process, our great Constitution and the will of we, the American people,” Hannity said on his television show. “The president … [is] fighting back in what is a powerful, scathing beatdown.”
Trump, in a blistering, no-holds-barred six-page letter Tuesday to Pelosi, D-Calif., lambasted the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry as an “open war on American Democracy,” writing that she has violated her oath of office and “cheapened the importance of the very ugly word, impeachment!”
