Sean Hannity reacts to Ruth Bader Ginsburg death, praises her ‘incredible, inspiring courage’ – Fox News

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday night at the age of 87, showed “incredible, inspiring courage” in the fight against her final illness, Sean Hannity told his viewers Friday night.

The “Hannity” host opened his program by noting Ginsburg’s “distinguished legal career” and her status as “the first Jewish woman to serve on the highest court in our land.” He also pointed out Ginsburg’s “great, deep friendship” with fellow Justice Antonin Scalia — who passed away in 2016 — despite the “deep philosophical divide” between them.

Ginsburg, who spent 27 years on the Supreme Court after she was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1993, passed from complications surrounding metastatic pancreatic cancer.

Chief Justice John Roberts described Ginsburg as “a jurist of historic stature,” as well as “a cherished colleague” and “a tireless and resolute champion of justice.”

Ginsburg had battled back from two forms of cancer in the past but her health began to take a downturn in December 2018 when she underwent a pulmonary lobectomy after two malignant nodules were discovered in the lower lobe of her left lung.

Hannity noted Friday night that his own father had died from pancreatic cancer “in a very short period of time.

“It is an insidious cancer. She battled this cancer with incredible, inspiring courage,” he said of Ginsburg. “Beyond heroic. She will be missed by many.”

Calls Hannity

Hannity calls out FBI chief Wray after Susan Rice email declassified: ‘Will you ever hold anyone accountable?’ – Fox News

Sean Hannity called on FBI Director Chris Wray to “get to the bottom” of the Michael Flynn case Tuesday after a newly declassified email by Susan Rice showed Wray’s predecessor, James Comey, suggested in January 2017 that President Barack Obama keep Flynn out of the loop on matters pertaining to Russia.

“Director Wray, are you comfortable with any of this?” Hannity asked. “Are you? Will you ever hold anyone accountable? Do you, Director Wray, care about what is an abuse of power and corruption that took place at the world’s premier law enforcement agency, the one at which you are now the director?

HANNITY CHALLENGES FBI DIRECTOR WRAY OVER FLYNN CASE

“In other words, Director Wray,” Hannity went on, “are you going to do anything to restore the reputation of this, the world’s premier law enforcement institution, or are you going to sweep it under the rug, be an institutionalist, be afraid to rock the boat, and maybe even want to protect your friends and you don’t want to go there?”

Hannity urged Wray to investigate and hold those who mishandled the Russia investigation accountable “for the sake of the 99 percent of great agents.”

“Maybe you should do the right thing for the country, for the rule of law, for the Justice Department, for the FBI and get to the bottom of it,” he said. “And if you’re not up to the job, maybe you should tell President Trump, ‘I’m just not up to this job, I don’t want to do the heavy lifting here.’

“And maybe,” the host concluded, “we can make General Flynn the new director of the FBI.”
