Sean Hannity slammed “verbal contortionist” Peter Strzok in a scathing monologue following the former FBI agent’s testimony before Congress.
Americans have to “suspend all sense of fact and fiction” to believe Strzok, the Fox News host said in a nearly 20-minute segment kicking off “Hannity” on Thursday, calling the former FBI counterintelligence agent a “partisan, political hack.”
“In order to believe these bizarre explanations from this verbal contortionist, you would literally have to suspend all sense of fact and fiction,” Hannity said, noting Strzok’s disparaging views of supporters of President Trump as noted in text messages he exchanged with former FBI colleague and lover Lisa Page.
“I have some bad news for Peter,” Hannity announced. “He is not the infallible, super patriot that he has clearly convinced himself he is. He lies to our face and in the end will he’s not going to get away with it. In other words, he’s not above the law because the American people saw these lies today. We know a cover up when we one.”
Throughout his monologue, Hannity played video clips from Thursday’s joint House Judiciary and Oversight Committees hearing over allegations of political bias in the Justice Department and FBI. Strzok was grilled over the infamous anti-Trump texts.
“It is clear and obvious to every American with common sense, Peter Strzok definitely has an unfaithful relationship with the truth and, without a doubt, this is the greatest case of cognitive dissonance I’ve ever seen in my life,” Hannity said.
“He’s out of touch with reality and he thinks only he knows what’s right for America. It couldn’t be more obvious, the poster child of what we now know is a deep state, thinking he knew better and knows better than we smelly Trump supporters,” he added before inviting Strzok and Page to join his radio and television programs to tell their full story.
“Come and defend yourself,” he offered. “I’m not going to hold my breath.”
Hannity wrapped up the monologue by explaining his respect for law enforcement and the FBI, noting many of his family members who served in the field.
“Today you told the American people not to believe your own words, their clear meaning. You tried to cover up your bias. You took no ownership of your terrible despicable actions,” Hannity said, addressing Strzok directly. “Mr. Strzok, you are not the 99.9 percent of law enforcement in this country that serve and protect us, nor was your girlfriend, Lisa.”
“What you are is a partisan, political hack. You abuse the trust and the power that we, the smelly people of the United States, that like Walmart, gave to you.”
Hannity pledged that Trump supporters “will not rest” until all of Strzok’s “deep state colleagues” are held accountable.
