Fox News host Sean Hannity revealed how he revered the FBI for decades in Wednesday’s opening monologue, but said that after the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate that the agency’s reputation has been “shattered.”
SEAN HANNITY: Many of you tonight are very angry, rightfully so. The FBI is blatantly targeting our fellow Americans for their political beliefs. The bureau’s reputation has been shattered. My faith in an organization – I’ll be honest. I had two family members. They were dating my family because they worked for this organization. I revered this organization for decades of my life.

The raid on the former president’s private home is shocking. It is wrong. It is a clear and gross abuse of power and corruption… And according to my sources tonight, on Monday morning, up to 40 FBI agents rolled up tomorrow Largo unannounced, guns ablaze in about a dozen vehicles, including a large moving truck.

Agents also demanded that the Mar-a-Lago staff turn off all security cameras. Well, we can tell you tonight those security cameras kept rolling. They were not shut off. And now we can report exclusively tonight that the FBI and the bureau is desperately trying to obtain all the footage.
