On his nationally syndicated radio talk show on Tuesday, Sean Hannity said that General Michael Flynn’s resignation as National Security Advisor is like “blood in the water” for the leftist media and political establishment in their effort to “make anything into the next Watergate” in an effort to impeach President Trump.

“They smell blood in the water,” said Sean Hannity. “Impeaching the president, that’s their goal. They’ve even said it – Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi. They’re trying to make anything into the next Watergate.”

Below is a transcript of Hannity’s remarks on the show

“This is how bad and how ill-prepared the media is – they’ve had a political earthquake and political movement unlike anything they’ve seen in their lifetime, and they can’t handle it. All they want to do is fixate on following the rabbit like a greyhound in a track.

“And they smell blood in the water. Impeaching the president, that’s their goal. They’ve even said it – Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi. They’re trying to make anything into the next Watergate.

“They’ve ignored Hillary Clinton. They defended her private email server. They defended the corruption pay-to-play at the Clinton Foundation. They defended her endless lies. They were silent when Obama was caught on a hot mic talking to Dmitri Medvedev, saying, ‘Dmitri, Dmitri, listen, tell Vladimir that you know, I’ll have a lot more flexibility. I’ll have flexibility. Medvedev, tell him, as soon as I’m elected. But don’t tell the American people.


“It’s no secret that Flynn had a rocky relationship with the national security establishment when in the Obama administration he said that was previously forced out of that government for speaking up about the rise of radical Islam. They already had a prejudice, if you will, a prejudgment towards him and a hate towards him.”
