Sean Hannity is one of Donald Trump’s closest allies.
But even Hannity can cross the line.
And you won’t believe what Sean Hannity asked Donald Trump to do.
As Conservative Revival reports:
The January 6 Select Committee continues to leak text messages obtained from Trump administration officials in order to embarrass conservatives.
One of the committee’s main targets is Fox News host Sean Hannity.
The Daily Beast reported that in the days after January 6 Hannity texted Kayleigh McEnany and wrote that he discussed a potential pardon for Hunter Biden with President Trump.
“He [Donald Trump] was intrigued by the pardon idea!! (Hunter),” Hannity texted McEnany.
In December 2020 Hunter Biden revealed he was the subject of a criminal investigation into charges of money laundering and tax evasion regarding his shady foreign business deals in Ukraine and Communist China.
Twitter and Facebook censored the New York Post’s accurate and bombshell reporting about the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop in a move that many saw as an effort to rig the election for Joe Biden.
Hannity allegedly proposed the pardon to Trump as an effort to make peace after January 6 and help the transition to the Biden administration.
The Daily Beast reports:
A person familiar with the conversations confirmed to The Daily Beast that the “Hunter” in the text was, in fact, Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden and a longtime target of conservative critics—Hannity foremost among them.
According to the source, Hannity had proposed that Trump issue a last-minute pardon for Hunter Biden, whose business dealings had two years prior been at the center of the ex-president’s campaign to extort an investigation out of the Ukrainian government—efforts that led to Trump’s first impeachment in 2019.
However, Trump rejected the idea of pardoning his rival’s son from potential criminal charges.
The Daily Beast also reports:
Hannity pitched the idea in a Jan. 7 conversation, framing it as a gesture that might help “smooth things over” after the insurrection’s traumatic rift, this person confirmed. But ultimately, the idea, like others in the text to McEnany—such as “no more stolen election talk” and “attending inauguration”—ultimately went nowhere.
“It died on the vine,” the person recalled, adding that, despite Trump’s initial interest, the pardon was “never seriously considered.”
Everyone knows Joe Biden would never pardon one of Donald Trump’s children and unlike Trump’s children, Hunter Biden faces real and serious criminal charges.
The Hunter Biden investigation is one of the biggest scandals hanging over the Biden administration.
Joe Biden clearly lied when he said he never discussed business with his son.
Emails from the “laptop from hell” show Biden met with Hunter Biden’s business associates when Biden was Vice President.
And the two traveled to Asia together aboard Air Force 2 in 2013 when Hunter Biden was trying to nail down a deal for an investment firm in Communist China.
But there are still unresolved questions about if Joe Biden is directly involved in this corruption.
Donald Trump rejecting an effort to pardon Hunter Biden left open the possibility of an investigation discerning if Joe Biden was knee deep in Hunter Biden’s business deals.
