Fox News powerhouse Sean Hannity says his sources say there is “extraordinarily damning” information that will be coming out about the DOJ and the FBI.
The claims are in regards to the Trump Russia probe, and come on the heels of the Mueller report release which cleared President Trump of any collusion.
Fox News recently reported that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Monday that he will probe alleged abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) at the start of the Russia investigation, while calling on Attorney General Bill Barr to appoint a new special counsel to investigate the “other side of the story.”
Graham, R-S.C., made the comments during a press conference on Capitol Hill following the release of the findings in the Robert Mueller investigation, which did not uncover evidence of a Trump-Russia conspiracy in 2016. Graham and other Trump allies cited the findings to renew scrutiny of the probe’s origins at the FBI. The chairman said he’ll look into any alleged misconduct related to the Russia investigation on the part of the Justice Department, the FBI and the Democrats, but added that due to “the emotional nature of this” he believes a new appointment is necessary.

Fox News host Sean Hannity said Monday his sources are telling him information that could soon be released regarding alleged corruption at the Justice Department and FBI will be “extraordinarily damning.”
He made the bold prediction about the so-called “five buckets of information” during an interview with Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., and Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz, bringing up the upcoming criminal referral focusing on the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.
“There are going to be criminal referrals issued this week by Chairman Nunes,” Hannity said. “There are going to be — the president, I interviewed last week — there will be the FISA applications released. There will be [FBI] 302s released, [and] there will be Gang of Eight material. We’ve identified five buckets of information that will be extraordinarily damning. I know that to be the case, based on all of my sources.”
Both Hannity and House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes, R-Calif., have talked for months about fighting for the release of several “buckets” of information related to potential misconduct of federal officials.
Nunes says he is prepared to submit a criminal referral this week after President Trump said Wednesday he plans to release the unredacted Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrants made during the early stages of the Russia investigation.
Meadows, who last month said an incoming release of documents will “show” U.S. ambassadors conspired with the FBI and the Justice Department to harm Trump, said there needs to be accountability for anyone who violates Americans’ civil liberties.
“They’re not going to like that, Sean. But I think you have the professor on tonight,” he said. It’s all about civil liberties and making sure those civil liberties are protected. If we cannot count on our government to protect those precious rights to privacy without warrants and warrantless searches, then we’ve got a real problem. Some of those criminal referrals are justified. Certainly some of the declassification that gets to the bottom of this is justified. At the same time, we have to protect our national security interests. ”
Nunes has not named anyone who could appear in a referral, but he has railed against what he says is collusion between the Democrats and the Russians, pointing to use of the unverified Trump dossier by the FBI to obtain FISA warrants to spy on onetime Trump campaign official Carter Page as proof of an unraveling operation to undermine the president. That dossier, compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, was funded in part by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
