Sean Hannity made a direct appeal to Senate Republicans to end the “B.S.” impeachment attempts against President Donald Trump “for the sake of our country.”
The Fox News host called out GOP lawmakers, urging them to “do your job” with the impeachment trial likely to begin next week, as he railed against “dazed and confused” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi during a lengthy monologue on “Hannity.”

“Before this current month-long pause of urgency, the very dazed and confused Nancy Pelosi, speaker-in-name-only, argued that impeachment was urgent,” Hannity said. “But now, after weeks and weeks of stalling over some fantasy that she’s going to actually dictate the Constitution to the U.S. Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell … Pelosi has given in.”
The Democrat leader announced Friday that she would be transmitting the articles of impeachment to the Senate next week.
“What have they done for three years?” Hannity asked of Democrats, echoing Trump’s words in an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingraham. “Nothing.”
“Let them put forward their case,” he continued, telling Republican senators directly that they need to stay on track and do their own jobs.
“Don’t start trying to do their bad work in the U.S. Senate. Don’t give any credence to what they have done and how they are hurting the country with politicizing all of this,” he said.
“Do your job! Your job is not to undo the mess that they’re handing you. Your job is to dismiss it because there’s nothing there,” Hannity said. “Do not carry out Nancy Pelosi’s bidding, ‘the Squad’s’ bidding. That is not your constitutional role, to hold little Adam Schiff’s hand and correct all his lies.”
He reminded Republicans that “it’s not your duty to try and justify the Democrats’ fabricated charges.”
“End the B.S. once and for all,” he said. “Get back to working on issues that will impact the lives, the safety, the security, the prosperity, of the American people.”
The Fox News host defended Trump’s right to invoke executive privilege to stop former national security adviser John Bolton from testifying. The former diplomat had indicated recently that he would be willing to testify in an impeachment trial.

Hannity blasted Democrats again for pushing through with their impeachment efforts.
“It is a desperate last-minute attempt to smear, slander, besmirch the president to try and get the political advantage. They know they’re not going to do it, they want to hurt the president politically,” he said, reminding viewers that the pursuit of removing Trump from office was underway by the left even before he started serving.
“Members of the U.S. Senate, especially Republicans, you need to end this for the sake of our country and our Constitution and frankly, for the sake of future presidents,” he urged the Senate GOP. “In America, it is we the people you’re supposed to be serving.”
