Sean Hannity has a warning for 'deep state' after James Comey op-ed

According to Fox News host Sean Hannity, the “deep state” is in full panic mode.

This comes after President Trump authorized Attorney General William Barr to declassify information regarding the origins of the Russian probe last week.

On his show, Hannity had a warning for those involved in the Russia investigation, especially former FBI director James Comey, who wrote a critical op-ed in the Washington Post. 

"Jim Comey, you do have the right to remain silent," Hannity said. "You should have taken my advice from the get go."

Comey wrote in the Washington Post op-ed: "There was no corruption. There was no treason. There was no attempted coup. Those are lies, and dumb lies at that."

Hannity is claiming otherwise and included other Obama-era intelligence officials such as former director of national intelligence James Clapper and former CIA director John Brennan.

Both of whom have been vocal against Trump authorizing declassified information in the Russian probe.
