Hannity even stated that government resources were used to monitor reporters which is usually an odd request.
Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) revealed he and other lawmakers have heard rumors accusing former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch of monitoring communications of U.S. citizens, which could have included journalists.
Yovanovitch was serving as the ambassador until she was recalled by the Trump administration this year in May.
Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Nunes, who is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Community, on Wednesday about the claims.
"What I can tell you is that we know what Pete Sessions, congressman from Texas now retired, we know what he had to say. We know that there are people within that were not only Ukrainians but also Americans that worked at the State Department who have raised concerns about this ambassador, that's why she was ultimately removed," Nunes said.
