Sean Hannity is being pressed by a committee to testify about texts on January 6th

Top-rated On January 6, Fox News anchor Sean Hannity became the latest conservative to be singled out by the House Select Committee.

According to Breitbart News, the host’s ‘crime’ is that he sent “dozens of text messages” to then-President Donald Trump, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).

None of the texts, according to the outlet, are'seditious,' advocate 'insurgency,' or otherwise indicate anything unlawful or untoward:

On December 31, 2020, for example, you texted Mr. Meadows the following:

“We can’t lose the entire WH counsels office. I do NOT see January 6 happening the way he is being told. After the 6 th. [sic] He should announce will lead the nationwide effort to reform voting integrity. Go to Fl and watch Joe mess up daily. Stay engaged. When he speaks people will listen.”

This language shows, among other things, that you were aware of concerns raised by President Trump's White House Counsel's Office about the constitutionality of the former President's intentions for January 6th. These details are crucial to our investigation.

“Legality” of Trump’s plans? What is that supposed to mean?

Again, the committee appears to have little to no solid proof that any misconduct took place. Members are attempting to round up as many of the former president's friends and acquaintances as possible in order to muddy the waters and give the impression of a major 'plot' to 'disrupt Congress' and'steal the election.' Since 2016, when the intelligence/media complex falsely stated that Trump and his team were collaborating with Vladimir Putin to "steal the election" from Hillary Clinton, we've heard a variant of this deception.

Of fact, the committee is deliberately inflaming the situation in order to make their endeavor appear far more urgent and serious than it is.

The panel also stated in its letter to Hannity that the host seemed to have "specific knowledge of President Trump's state of mind in the days after the January 6th incident" - using the word "attack" rather than "riot," which has a very different connotation.

Furthermore, you appear to have intimate knowledge of President Trump's mental condition in the days following the terrorist incident on January 6th. For example, you appear to have had a conversation with President Trump on January 10th, which may have sparked a variety of particular worries about his potential behavior in the days leading up to his inauguration on January 20th. You wrote to Congressman Jordan and Mark Meadows, saying:

“Guys, we have a clear path to land the plane in 9 days. He can’t mention the election again. Ever. I did not have a good call with him today. And worse, I’m not sure what is left to do or say, and I don’t like not knowing if it’s truly understood. Ideas?”

Trump did not attend Joe Biden's inauguration in the end, but he clearly believes that the election was stolen from him, whether that is true or not. However, his rage at losing and his reluctance to attend Biden's inauguration are not unlawful. And, as Hannity has repeatedly pointed out on his show, Trump never called for anybody in the enormous throng who gathered to hear him speak to physically storm the Capitol Building.

Breitbart added:

According to the letter, the panel’s questions are limited to Hannity’s text messages. It will not seek information about Hannity’s broadcast or political affiliation. The panel claimed to have “immense respect for the First Amendment to our Constitution, freedom of the press, and the rights of Americans to express their political opinions freely.”

The committee's goal isn't to "find out the truth about what happened on January 6." Its goal is to keep putting a fog over Trump's administration in order to prevent him from running again, because they are so afraid of him.
