Did Hannity set himself up for a subpoena? Leftists believe they found ‘gotcha’ moment in Trump interview

Now that they control the House, Democrats leave little doubt that they intend to dig up something on President Donald Trump to try to remove him from office, and now may have a new angle to pull it off: Sean Hannity.

The president appeared on Fox News’ “Hannity” Thursday evening and it was during the interview that the show’s namesake may have become Target #2 for Democrats.

While discussing former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s testimony this week before Congress, which included an allegation that Trump approved hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen MacDougal, Hannity spoke of Cohen personally denying the claim.

“I can tell you personally, [Cohen] said to me at least a dozen times, that he made the decision on the payments and he didn’t tell you,” Hannity told the president.

 

While working for Trump, Cohen appeared on “Hannity” a number of times and the attorney told the Southern District of New York that Hannity was a client of his — he disputed this during the interview.

“He was never my attorney,” Hannity stated. “He did apologize to me for his attorney saying that in court.”

Hannity’s revelation that Cohen denied to him what the lawyer told Congress caught the eye of Rhode Island Democratic Congressman David Cicilline.

The lawmaker ominously tweeted: “Sean Hannity is now volunteering himself as a witness. I look forward to his testimony.”

A common word seen in the reactions was “subpoena” — which Democrats like Rep. Alexander Ocasio-Cortez likes to wield like a club:

It was enough to make the anti-Trump/anti-Fox News cabal giddy over the possible outcome:
