Sean Hannity, popular Fox News host, suspects that he may have been one of the persons whom former president Barak Obama spied on during his last year in office, according to Western Journalism.
The practice he’s referring to is known as “unmasking,” in which the government reveals the identity of an American who is corresponding with foreign persons or targets. Several Obama administration officials have been accused of it, including former national security advisor Susan Rice. The accusations involve hundreds of Americans who were unmasked in an effort to surveil the Trump campaign.
“I am going to sanction the biggest lawsuit that I possibly can with the biggest attorneys in the country so we can do something to stop the shredding of the Constitution,” said Hannity in a recent radio broadcast.
During an April podcast on Rose Unplugged, Hannity said, “And I will say this, if it ever does turn out to be true, I will be filing suit. … They will have to be deposed and go under oath and I will have civil action against anybody that might have been involved in that.”
Hannity has spoken about this before, as early as April: “I will sue the living pants off of anybody who did it—I promise you that. And I will stop at nothing. And I have the means to attack this for years. And I’ll do it. And I’ll do it on behalf of every American’s right to privacy and to be able to make a confidential phone call or send a text or an email to their friends and loved ones,” he said on his show.
