Hannity Facing Indictment For Coordinating Leaks Of Hacked Information With Roger Stone

The indictment and arrest of Donald Trump’s longtime friend, adviser, and confidant, Roger Stone in late January was a serious blow to the president and could well wind up being a defining moment in the investigations being conducted by federal and state investigators.

But there’s another well-known Trump acolyte who’s also threatened by the arrest of Stone: Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Hannity, it should be noted, is friends with Roger Stone and also hired Trump’s former attorney, Michael Cohen, to do legal work for him. Hannity is also an unofficial adviser to Trump. That’s three degrees of association with the larger Russia conspiracy, and it suggests Mueller may indict Hannity as well.

As Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Kurt Eichenwald pointed out on Twitter recently, Hannity is tightly woven into the very fabric of the Russian attack on the last presidential election:

The reference to “Corsi” is Jerome Corsi, a conspiracy theorist and all-around bizarre wing nut who has trafficked in outrageous lies for decades and once worked for the Alex Jones outfit, InfoWars. Corsi was one of the originators of the “birther” lie suggesting that Barack Obama wasn’t really an American citizen.

Corsi is also a close associate of Roger Stone. If either of them shared disinformation with Hannity, who then passed it along in coordination with Russian operatives, that makes Hannity part of a larger conspiracy to influence the 2016 presidential race.

Additionally, if Hannity knew information he helped spread came from Russian hackers or other foreign sources that obtained it illegally and didn’t report that to the FBI, that alone would be what’s know as misprision of a felony, i.e. knowing about a crime and failing to notify authorities. Conviction on either of those offenses would place the Fox host behind bars for several years, perhaps even decades.

Keep in mind that in addition to the indictment charging Stone, there remains on file in the D.C. federal court 12 unsealed indictments, one of which may well contain Hannity’s name.

But perhaps most disturbing is the possibility that Hannity, with the assistance of Fox News, helped spread propaganda in order to guarantee Trump was elected. if proven, such an act could well spell the end of Hannity’s career and sink Fox News once and for all.
