Host Sean Hannity’s Private Texts and Public Remarks on Fox News Before Jan. 6 are different

 

Fox News veteran host Sean Hannity texts are different in a private context when compared with his public remarks the night before the January 6, insurrection. The House panel, which is investigating the Capitol riot requested an interview with Hannity, who has been one of Trump’s biggest supporters among all media.

Rep. Bennie Thompson, the select committee’s chairman and Liz Cheney, the committee’s vice chair told Hannity that the panel would like to know more about his communications with former President Trump in the days that preceded as well as the days after January 6.

The letter said that the panel that was investigating the January 6 incident was focusing on text messages which it had for time periods dating from December 31, 2020 to January 20, 2020. These text messages had been exchanged between Sean Hannity, Donald Trump and his legal team.

The letter also stated that Hannity had sent as well as received “a steam of texts.” One text from Hannity stated that he was “very worried about the next 48 hours.” Another text sent to Mark Meadows, former White House chief of staff read, “Pence pressure. WH counsel will leave.”

The letter also mentions that other texts seem to suggest that the talkshow host may have spoken to Trump that evening regarding plans for the next day namely January 6, when a proTrump mob stormed the Capitol in a bid to suspend counting of the electoral college votes that would formally acknowledge that Joe Biden had been elected the President of the United States.

However, on his show on Fox News, Hannity had appeared upbeat and had said, “Big day tomorrow, big crowds apparently showed up to the point where the West Wing could hear the music and the chanting of the people that were there already.”

On Tuesday night, Hannity’s lawyer Jay Sekulow told the Associated Press that they had been reviewing the letter that was sent to the Fox News host and that they “would respond as appropriate.” Fox News has not responded when asked for comment by news outlets.

Hannity had later condemned the violence that occurred on January 6. 2021. However, he never criticized Trump even though the former president had said, “fight like hell.” Hannity also criticized the committee that is investigating the deadly riots of January 6. On December 14, the talk show host called it a “sham” on his show.
