(Republican Party News) – With the one-year anniversary of the so-called insurrection on Jan. 6 approaching, Nancy Pelosi’s handpicked special committee is really stepping up their tactics as they continue their sham investigation.
Fox News host Sean Hannity has found himself in the crosshairs after receiving a letter from the House committee on Tuesday in which they called for his cooperation.
Hannity’s attorney Jay Sekulow told Axios that “any such request would raise serious constitutional issues including First Amendment concerns regarding freedom of the press.”
The letter from committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) and vice chair Rep. Liz Cheney (RINO-WY), claims to be making the request with “immense respect” for the First Amendment but asserts they have a “solemn responsibility” to investigate the Jan. 6, 2021 events.
“The Select Committee now has information in its possession … indicating that you had advance knowledge regarding President Trump’s and his legal team’s planning for January 6th. It also appears that you were expressing concerns and providing advice to the President and certain White House staff regarding that planning,” the letter read.
“You also had relevant communications while the riot was underway, and in the days thereafter,” it continued. “The Select Committee is in possession of dozens of text messages you sent to and received from former White House Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows and others related to the 2020 election and President Trump’s efforts to contest the outcome of the vote.”
Many of Hannity’s texts were released last month.
The Committee is seeking information from Sean Hannity.

The letter noted a Jan. 5, 2021, text in which Hannity said he was “very worried about the next 48 hours.”
“Why were you concerned about the next 48 hours?” the letter asked. “What precisely did you know at that time?”
Clearly tensions were high in the US at that time. Hundreds of millions of Americans believed the election had just been stolen and were desperately awaiting Mike Pence and the Republicans to intervene and not allow the charade to go on.
Hannity was, like millions of other Americans, concerned and rightfully so. Now that concern is giving an open door to the sham, partisan Jan. 6 witch hunt.
The Democrat-dominated panel wants Hannity to spill the beans on his knowledge about President Trump’s state of mind and plans at that time.
“It also appears from other text messages that you may have had a conversation directly with President Trump on the evening of January 5th (and perhaps at other times) regarding his planning for January 6th,” the letter said.
The letter also cited a text from Hannity to Meadows on Dec. 31, 2020, about the rally taking shape for Jan 6: “We can’t lose the entire WH counsel’s office. I do NOT see January 6 happening the way he is being told.”
“Among many other things, this text suggests that you had knowledge of concerns by President Trump’s White House Counsel’s Office regarding the legality of the former President’s plans for January 6th,” the letter from the committee said. “These facts are directly relevant to our inquiry.”
Thompson and Cheney said they want to ask Hannity about “any conversations you had with Mr. Meadows or others about any effort to remove the President under the 25th Amendment.”
Naturally, unhinged Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff (CA) says that Hannity is a logical person to be called for questioning by the committee.
“He has information that would be relevant to our committee. He was more than a Fox host. He was also a confidant, adviser, campaigner for the former president. And I would hope that if he’s asked by the committee … he would cooperate with us,” Schiff told MSNBC.
