Sean Hannity had this jaw-dropping response to Hillary Clinton threatening Fox News
Hillary Clinton is clearly gearing up to run for President again.
Declaring war on Fox News is the latest step in the Clinton comeback.
And Sean Hannity had this jaw-dropping response to Hillary Clinton threatening Fox News.
Hillary Clinton knows the base of the Democrat Party hates Fox News and wants to see it censored and taken off the air.
Far-left Democrats may be uneasy with the idea of Hillary running for President again in 2024 – Hillary is closely aligned with the Wall Street financiers who fund Democrat campaigns – so Clinton understands the easiest way to unite the party behind is to attack the hated Fox News.
That’s why in Clinton’s big comeback speech to the New York State Democrat Party convention Clinton threatened to sue Fox News over the coverage of John Durham’s latest court filing claiming Fox News lied about Clinton spying on the Trump campaign.
“Fox leads the charge with accusations against me, counting on their audience to fall for it again,” Clinton screeched. “And as an aside, they’re getting awfully close to actual malice in their attacks.”
Clinton dropped the phrase “actual malice” on purpose.
It became embedded in the public consciousness this past week when a judge her husband appointed threw out Sarah Palin’s defamation suit against The New York Times in the middle of jury deliberations arguing that Palin did not prove The Times acted with actual malice, which is the standard public figures must meet in order to win a defamation case.
On Fox News that night, Sean Hannity had a field day taunting Clinton for her lawsuit threat.
Hannity noted that if Clinton sued Fox News it would open discovery where Fox News could subpoena every record and communication from the Clinton campaign with vendors, the media, the FBI, and anyone else Fox News wanted as proving the Clinton campaign spied on Trump would be an absolute defense against Clinton’s lawsuit.
“It’s called discovery and it’s called depositions,” Hannity stated. “Bring it on. Malice? Really? It’s called news. Hillary, we invite you to bring it on. It’s from a legal filing we quoted exactly from the filing that was put in federal court.”
Hillary Clinton will likely eventually back down because the lawyer’s advice in these types of cases ends up being: “don’t sue. They may prove it to be true.”
