Top House Democrat: Hannity should testify under oath about hush-money scheme

CNN - 03-01


(CNN)A member of House Democratic leadership says it may be time to hear from Fox News host Sean Hannity -- under oath. Rhode Island Rep. David Cicilline, who chairs the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee, said that Hannity's latest comments suggest he has information about hush money payments made by Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to keep the then-presidential candidate's alleged extramarital affairs quiet in the days before the 2016 election. Trump later reimbursed Cohen for those payments.
