Sean Hannity ripped into special investigator Robert Mueller last night, calling for him to resign. He claims “conflicts of interest” specifically related to the Uranium One Deal makes him unfit to continue his investigation.

Hannity claimed that Mueller, who was FBI director when the deal was approved did not do enough to warn lawmakers about the corruption and bribery involved in the scandal. The resulting deal left around 20 percent of America’s uranium squarely in the hands of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

But Hannity was just getting started in his screed:

“He said Mueller ‘should resign immediately tonight’ because his role as FBI director presents a ‘conflict of interest’ in his probe, which is looking into collusion between American actors and Russia.

“‘There’s no way the American people can trust Robert Mueller to investigate anything Russia related,’ he added.

“Hannity also called into question the roles of current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was in charge of the investigation into the deal at the time.

“He said Rosenstein and then-Attorney General Eric Holder should be questioned by Congress on the matter.

“‘How is it possible that they never recognized that giving Vladimir Putin 20 percent of our uranium was a good idea?’ Hannity asked.”

Do you agree that Robert Mueller should step down as the special investigator in charge of looking into Russian meddling? Has he lost all credibility? New information will be coming to light soon and it the issue may take center stage. While it seems unlikely that Mueller will step down himself, President Trump may be forced to fire him if enough evidence mounts supporting his dismissal.

    Didn’t I hear that Mueller was the one who took a sample to Russia?

  • AF Sam

    I have never trusted this person, even when he was Director of the FBI, why would anyone trust him now? He is about as trustworthy as Barack “Insane” Obama! NOT!!

  • dan690

    Typical democrat ploy, have the bank robber investigate himself.

    • Gnowark

      It wouldn’t be as bad if the inevitable “determination” was immediate, but we must wait while the bank robber even collects a paycheck to determine he’s “innocent”

  • Sue

    Nothing like a pretend investigation to pay already overpaid politicians to look into the leaders that they worked for previously. They “animals” looking into the activities of their zookeepers. I certainly hope they are working pro bono. tee hee.

    Yet another ‘phony’ scandal and a complete and utter waste of TAXPAYER money… just to distract from the REAL SCANDAL… which is the abysmal failure, embarrassment and danger of Trump… submitted by Trump surrogate, apologist and pathetic asswipe, Sean Hannity. If you care to dig in… here’s a start. ( http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2017/oct/24/what-you-need-know-about-hillary-clinton-and-urani/ )

    My favorite line: Russia’s purchase of the company “had as much of an impact on national security as it would have if they set the money on fire,” said Jeffrey Lewis, a nuclear nonproliferation expert at the Middlebury Institute and former director at the New America Foundation, in an interview with PolitiFact last year. “That’s probably why (CFIUS and the NRC) approved it.”

      Bdog: You, and your sources, seem to have a very unusual interpretation of reality, no doubt stemming from beliefs that “open borders” will make us safer, disarming law-abiding citizens will protect us from armed criminals, invasion by other countries worst will make us best, and New America could be unaware of ‘profit’ as a motive.

      • Bdog

        No interpretation required. Facts are facts… whether you like them or not. It’s a SEVEN YEAR OLD STORY being dredged up as a head-fake. (Look at the shiny object over here!) And then you do an absurd pivot to a completely different topic, making a ‘very unusual interpretation… no doubt stemming from YOUR disjointed and broad based assumptions on what you think I believe. If you think there’s ANY REALITY coming out of Sean Hannity… then I feel sorry for you.

  • deusexmachina1

    And Sessions recused himself for a conflict of interest that dosn’t exist…..

  • prm2012

    • Gnowark

      But he and his good buddy comey are so, so, so,… well (like hilLIARy), there’s no evidence they’re dishonest, yet.

  • 2broke

    go after the bottom person, bring them up on charges and give immunity for factual evidence and self incrimination..

  • Esau’s Message

    What’s more is all these issues are tied together by the careerism and ambition of the DEEP STATE and the greed and megalomania of Left-Lib-Prog-Soc-Com-Green-Fem-Dem UNITED FRONT, and most especially the Clinton and Obama Crime Families. The fix always had to be in, otherwise this RICO scam could not work. The cutting of corners, the skirting of laws, the actual crimes (both minor and major), the prosecutors’ refusals to prosecute, the investigators’ refusals to investigate, the white washes, the cover ups, the insider and sweetheart deals, the kickbacks, the phoney-baloney speeches, the so-called “charities” operating as personal and political slush funds, and the laundering of funds. All that was the grease in the wheels, the fuel in the engine. Bust down this rattling, gimcrack, corrupt contraption and we will lose the Republic.

    • Gnowark

      Esau’s Message: “Left-Lib-Prog-Soc-Com-Green-Fem-Dem UNITED FRONT” – a well-turned accurate phrase. But if I had to pick at it, I believe you meant “OR we will lose…” instead of “and…”
      A week late’s Thanks!

    In 30 years running MY own business, I never knew an HONEST democrat.

  • Katie Jones

There are some serious communist up there the Clintons’ the Obama’s and now we know about the DNC and the Democrat party players. Notice that Pelosi and Schumer are suddenly quiet on Gun Control??
