Fox News’ host Sean Hannity is now threatening to bring a whopping lawsuit to former President Barack Obama’s doorstep after reports surfaced that the conservative ally to Trump had been “unmasked” from incidental surveillance during his tenure.
On his radio show, Hannity explained why he believed he was unmasked and issued a threatening warning to Obama:
“I have it on pretty good authority that I’ve been ‘unmasked,’ among other things. And, by the way, if I find out, I am going to sanction the biggest lawsuit that I possibly can with the biggest attorneys in the country so we can do something to stop the shredding of our Constitution. I will do that because that is illegal and if my rights are violated, we will find a way to make this happen.”
Hannity also retweeted a report of his comments and added the following statement to the tweet: “Stay tuned. Need more Intel,” and, “I hired 4 of the countries [sic] best attorneys. THE CONSTITUTION MATTERS!!”
Hannity has speculated previously that he was “unmasked” by a member of the Obama administration at some point.
According to a report from The Blaze, the process involves a “request to intelligence officials to reveal names of U.S. persons that obscured in “incidental surveillance” of foreign targets. While the process can be used to garner more information about threats to the nation’s security, it has been speculated by many that it became politicized under the Obama administration and used in order to damage political opponents.”
It will be interesting to see if President Trump comments on the unmasking inquiry since “Hannity” is one of the few programs Trump still watches (and trusts). The audio of Hannity talking about his possible lawsuit can be viewed below via conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’s channel:
