House Committee Democrat Suggests Hannity Will Have to Testify
Last night Sean Hannity had another rare interview with President Trump, this time from Hanoi, Vietnam, where the president just wrapped up a summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
While the president’s dialogue in the discussion didn’t include anything too eye-opening that we haven’t heard in the past, it was Sean Hannity’s words which may have actually sparked an invitation to sit before a House committee to testify in the Trump/Russia probe.
While the president’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, testified this week that he paid off porn star Stormy Daniels, in order to keep her quiet about an alleged affair, all at the direction of Trump, Sean Hannity told a different story to Mr. Trump last night.
“I can tell you personally, [Cohen] said to me at least a dozen times, that he made the decision on the payments and he didn’t tell you. He told me, personally,” the Fox News host proudly bragged on air.
Within minutes of Mr. Hannity’s interview with the president airing, a Democratic member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) tweeted the following, suggesting that Mr. Hannity will likely be asked to testify before a committee after volunteering himself as a witness:
Sean Hannity is now volunteering himself as a witness. I look forward to his testimony. https://t.co/eOjhlkg4mU

Whether any of the House committees will request testimony from Mr. Hannity, or be forced to subpoena him, is yet to be seen, but many legal experts agreed that this was now a very real possibility.
