Top House Democrat: Hannity should testify under oath about hush-money scheme

“Sean Hannity volunteered first-hand knowledge about Michael Cohen’s actions last night,” Cicilline spokesman Francis Grubar told CNN. “If he was lying, it wouldn’t be the first time. This is the same guy who claimed inside knowledge that Russia didn’t hack the DNC until a federal judge ordered him to stop. Regardless, if he feels he has information that’s relevant to this investigation, he should share it under oath before Congress.”

On his television program Thursday night, Hannity told Trump that Cohen told him “at least a dozen times” that “he made the decision on the payments — and he didn’t tell you.”

“He told me that personally,” Hannity said to Trump.

The comment prompted Cicilline — a member of the influential House Judiciary Committee — to tweet Thursday: “Sean Hannity is now volunteering himself as a witness. I look forward to his testimony.”
