Hannity Irate Over Allegations He Was An Obama Admin. Surveillance Target
Jack Davis, Western Journalism
Fox News host and stalwart Trump supporter Sean Hannity lashed out Tuesday night at claims he may have been a target of Obama-era surveillance.
Journalist Mike Cernovich tweeted Tuesday that Fox News host Sean Hannity and Blackwater founder Erik Prince were under surveillance by the Obama administration. Cernovich was among the first to allege that Susan Rice, former President Barack Obama’s national security adviser, played a leading role in coordinating surveillance of President Donald Trump’s associates.

The allegation was made to Cernovich by Charles Johnson of Gotnews.com, who did not cite any sources for his allegations.
“I have been told that when Susan Rice says that they were not surveilling the transition members – I don’t know if that part’s true. But I can you 100% they were surveilling people who were on this sort of unofficial transition,” said Johnson.
“So these were people who were helping out on the side. People like Erik Prince. People like Sean Hannity. These were folks having their phones monitored. Their phones were drained of power.
“I can tell you 100% Sean Hannity was surveilled and had to change all of his material, change all of his situation on his phone,” he added.
