During his radio show on Friday, Fox News host Sean Hannity appeared to threaten to publicize Republican senators’ phone numbers if they vote to allow witnesses to be called during the Senate impeachment trial, which could begin as early as next week.
“They now get to present their case to all of you Republican senators,” Hannity said, in comments first spotted by Media Matters. “Don’t make me start giving out the phone number!”…
The pro-Trump media star went on to complain that it is the House of Representatives’ “sole Constitutional role” to impeach, claiming that they “decided in their insanity and psychosis and rage to abuse that power and bring up what is a non-case.”
“That is not what your role is in the U.S. Senate,” he added. “Your role is also very very clear, you are to run the trial. That’s it. That’s what your job is. It is not your job, at all, to redo their corrupt investigation!”
