Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA) went on MSNBC’s “Hallie Jackson Reports” to make the case for the House Select Committee on Jan 6 hearing from Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Schiff is making the claim that Hannity is not a journalist so he doesn’t get the same protections a journalist would as per our constitution because he was an ‘adviser’ to former President Donald Trump.
Hallie Jackson said, “Congressman, I know I have to let you go, but this literally just popped into my e-mail from Axios reporting the January 6 Select Committee is preparing to ask Sean Hannity, Fox News host, for his voluntary testimony.
“I would be remiss journalistic if I didn’t ask you since sitting in front of me? Is that the expectation? Are you looking for information or cooperation from Mr. Hannity?”
Schiff said, “Yes. I think you’ll see an announcement about that very soon. You know, we believe that he was texting with the chief of staff and that he has information that would be relative to our committee.
“He was more than a Fox host.
“He was also a confidant, adviser, campaigner for the former president.
“I would hope that if asked by the committee, as in fact, he will be very soon, he would cooperate with us.”
Jackson said, “That’s a voluntary request? Just so I’m clear on that?”
Schiff said, “That’s my understanding, and you’ll get confirmation soon.
“We are making voluntary requests that he speak with the committee.”
