Fox News' host Sean Hannity defended former National Security Advisor Michael FlynnThursday and advised him to withdraw his plea and "fight."
"My advice to General Flynn is this: Get your new lawyers, move forward with your legal team. Withdraw that plea and fight this in court. You do not deserve the setup that was Comey and McCabe. That is a national, despicable, disgusting disgrace what they did to him," Hannity said on his television show.
According to a motion filed in D.C. federal court on Thursday, Flynn is ending his relationship with the law firm Covington & Burling, and has already hired new legal representation.
Flynn's sentencing has continuously been delayed. The delay has happened for unknown reasons which continue to raise issues with the case and prompts these calls for Flynn to fight.
"So you told him not to get a lawyer. Then you set him up. Then you brag about setting him up... What a jackass! Who treats a 33-year veteran like this? That's how we treat American heroes, we set them up we tell them not to have lawyers ... We pretty much say it's not an investigation and brag about it?" Hannity said.
