Sean Hannity said on his radio and television shows Monday that he thinks President Trump should pardon himself in order to avoid a potential prosecution from the incoming Biden administration.
The conservative host referred to an op-ed by a former member of the special counsel’s office, Andrew Weissman, arguing for Trump to be investigated and potentially prosecuted by the next administration.
“If that’s what they want to do, if Biden ever became president, I’d tell Trump to pardon yourself and pardon your family,” Hannity said on his Fox News show late Monday.
Hannity made similar comments on his radio show earlier in the day, warning that Democrats “want this witch hunt to go on in perpetuity.”
Hannity is one of Trump’s most vocal media supporters and is said to have major influence over the president.
