Speaking on the one-year anniversary of Mueller’s appointment, Hannity described the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Moscow a “monumental abuse of power” and insisted that a sitting president can’t be indicted.
He also said Mueller may not be able to subpoena Trump since the president’s attorneys have turned in more than 1 million documents.
