Fox Information host Sean Hannity has as soon as once more suggested allies of President Donald Trump to at all times plead the Fifth modification earlier than congressional hearings with a purpose to keep away from perjuring or incriminating themselves.
On Wednesday’s broadcast of his radio present, Hannity used former Trump marketing campaign supervisor Corey Lewandowski’s chaotic look at Tuesday’s Home Judiciary Committee listening to as the explanation for why “nobody in their right mind should ever go before these committees anymore.”
“They’ve all testified, they’ve all given, you know, hours and hours of their lives to these committees and to the special counsel,” famous Hannity, a staunch supporter of the Trump administration who doled out related recommendation in July.
“And, then if you answer the questions and they don’t like the way you answer them, they are the sole arbiter of whether they get to say you lied. And then they get to charge you,” he added.
“The next time anybody goes before these committees, the words I plead the Fifth, invoke the Fifth, because you don’t have to incriminate yourself,” mentioned Hannity. “And God forbid if you just happen to say one little itsy bitsy thing that didn’t match exactly what you said one of the other fourteen times you’ve been there, well then they’re going to say perjury and then you got that mess in your life.”
