Tucker Carlson came to the defense of Sean Hannity amid revelations that the Fox News host was connected with lawyer Michael Cohen.
He’s worried about the rights of all Americans as the left spirals out of control. Many of us share the same fear.
Hannity took some heat on Monday as it was revealed he had not disclosed that he once took legal advice from President Trump’s personal attorney. Hannity’s defense of Cohen following the FBI raid on his office last week appeared to put the Fox News host in a conflict of interest position which he addressed in a statement on his show Monday.
Carlson commented on the controversy ahead of Hannity’s show, discussing Cohen’s appearance in court on Monday.
“The real news came at the hearing itself. Michael Cohen was forced to hand over a list of his clients to a judge,” the Fox News host said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Monday.
“Among those on the list was our friend, Sean Hannity in the hour after ours. Judge Kimba Wood ordered Hannity’s identity revealed even though Hannity had specifically requested his name to remain private, which is his right,” Carlson said, before reading a statement from his colleague.
“Keep in mind, Sean Hannity is a talk show host. He’s not under investigation by anyone for anything,” Carlson said. “Who he hires as a lawyer and why is nobody’s business. No judge has a right to violate his privacy or anybody else’s.”
“Those used to be the rules but the rules have changed,” Carlson continued, as he went on to note the loss of other legal protections in America as the left marches on it its focused goal of hurting Trumpa nd anyone associated with him.
“The point of the Russia investigation is not to find collusion. There was no collusion. Everybody knows that and everyone’s always known that,” he said.
“The point is and was to hurt Trump and anybody close to Trump. By the way, it’s working. Now maybe you hate Trump and you’re happy about that, but what are the rest of us losing in this process? Attorney-client privilege no longer means anything. Neither does privacy or public reputation or fairness,” Carlson added, wondering where the line would be drawn as things spiral from here.
All of that will happen, no question,” Carlson concluded. “And when it does, the left will cheer because extremism in the pursuit of Trump is no vice according to them. The question is, do you really want to live in a country like that? Who would?”
