The unprecedented political scandals that are being gradually revealed, involving Hillary Clinton, Former FBI Director James Comey, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, and other players and institutions representing the anti-Trump Shadow Government and the Deep State, can be difficult to understand. They represent an ominous cloud that is darkening the skies over the corrupt and toxic Washington, D.C. swamp. Connecting the dots in all of this, as new revelations are reported daily, can become a full-time job.
Fortunately, there is still a small number of credible journalists, analysts, and broadcasters who are peeling back the layers of the onion and bringing the story to us in the clarity of the light of day – if only we are willing to read, watch, and understand what we are being presented with: namely the anatomy of a slow motion domestic coup d’état that is rapidly gaining momentum.
The leading mainstream media source for critical information on this subject – which is really about a soft coup that is underway to remove President Donald Trump from power – is veteran broadcaster Sean Hannity. On his daily, nationally syndicated, 3-hour radio show, and on his nightly 9-10 P.M. Fox News program, Sean Hannity has broken so many important political stories this year that it is impossible to keep count. He is assisted by leading journalists including John Solomon of The Hill, Sara Carter, lately of Circa News, and Fox News’s own Gregg Jarrett, a former Fox News anchor, an attorney, and a legal analyst for Fox News and the Fox Business Channel.
On Wednesday evening, December 13, Jarrett appeared on Hannity. In his interaction with the host, Jarrett presented the clearest, most concise, and most accurate distillation to date of what we are dealing with in the myriad scandals, cover-ups, and conspiracies at the highest levels of the U.S. government. A video of the hour long program, minus commercials, is currently online at YouTube here. The segment with Jarrett, and with Fox News Contributor Tomi Lahren, begins 39 minutes and 26 seconds into the recording. Here is the transcript of Jarrett’s comments and his interactions with Hannity (Jarrett speaks a total of 323 words).
Sean Hannity: [Addressing Gregg Jarrett – his in-studio guest] I want you to put your legal hat on. I am stunned. This to me is bigger by far than anything that came up in Watergate.
Gregg Jarrett: It’s clear there was a nefarious conspiracy by the FBI and the Department of Justice to elect Hillary Clinton and to defeat Donald Trump. When it didn’t work, the conspirators launched their Plan B, which was a fraudulent investigation into President Trump in [for] two crimes which don’t exist under the law.
So, this is the Deep State, as you’ve often referred. The Deep State is a group of partisans who have been together for 20 years. All these guys are thick as thieves. They conspired to unseat and undo the election – unseat the president and undo the election. Plan A was exonerate Hillary Clinton. That didn’t work. Plan B was to. . .
Hannity: Wait. They did exonerate her. Without an investigation.
Jarrett: They did exonerate her but it didn’t lead to her ascendancy to the presidency which was their goal. The emails prove it. Look at the emails. The most telling email of all is the email in which [FBI agent Peter] Strzok’s lover says to him you were meant to be in this position to save the country – to save the Republic.
Hannity: He was part of the exoneration!
Jarrett: He was totally part of the exoneration.
[Tomi Lahren’s comments were snipped.]
Jarrett: It was always a myth that collusion in a political campaign is a crime. It’s not. And there was never a scintilla of evidence that President Trump engaged in some collaboration with the Russians. So this was all manufactured – it was invented by the FBI and the Department of Justice and we know why. Because they hated Trump, they loved Hillary Clinton, they were trying to elect her and they were trying to defeat him and when it didn’t work they went. . . to Plan B.
Hannity: Plan B. Manufactured by the Deep State.
Jarrett: Right. “Let’s just say there’s a crime and then we’ll search in vain for a crime. And so now that we know there is no collusion in the political campaign the question is was there collusion in the transition.” No! – that’s not a Logan Act violation.
Hannity: Then we find out that the dossier was used as the predicate for the FISA warrant.
End of transcript.
The next night, Thursday, December 14, Jarrett was back once again with Hannity in a segment with Sara Carter and Judicial Watch President Tom Finton to continue unraveling the story. The video of that program is currently online here. As of this writing, a transcript of Thursday’s Hannity was not yet online nor was Wednesday’s. Stay tuned for further developments.
