Before today’s testimony, Marie Yovanovitch testified in closed-door hearings that she partially blamed Fox News host Sean Hannity for playing a role in her firing.
Last night, Hannity responded with fire and brimstone, promising to hire the “absolute best lawyers” to sue Yovanovitch if she continues.
Hannity laid out his stark warning for all to see:
Now remember she’s the one who suggested that yours truly somehow played a role in her dismissal. I will remind her, THAT IS A LIE! And a complete fabrication. To be honest, until recently in that hearing when that happened, I don’t really know anything about this woman… That was a slanderous, libelous lie to say I was ever conducting a smear campaign against her… I’ll say it again. People better stop lying about me. Cuz I’m not gonna take it and I do promise you I will hire the absolute best lawyers in the country and I’ll spend the money whatever it takes.
