Fox News Host Mark Levin appeared to be cut off in the midst of an impassioned extended statement on why the raid on former President Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago was, in his words, “a witch hunt.”
Levin shared his comments on Tuesday evening’s “Hannity” show. Levin was visibly angered when producers seemingly cut him off by playing the exit music as he was speaking, abruptly ending the interview.
When Levin realized what was happening, he exclaimed in frustration, “Oh Christ, you’re cutting me off early. I’m done.”
Levin, often an emotional and volatile orator, claimed the raid on Trump’s home was a “carefully laid plan” and that the White House was well informed of what was happening.
Noting his professional qualifications to comment on the matter, Levin criticized the FBI’s methods and the warrant used for the search. Not mincing words, Levin called the warrant a “crap warrant” and alleged the document illegally granted authorities the right to “grab whatever they could find.”
It was a “witch hunt … a Stalinist hunt,” claimed Levin.
After noting that a proper warrant would list the specific items agents were searching for, Levin noted that in this case, agents were empowered to look for “anything they can find on Trump, anything they can hang on him!
Levin continued, “This isn’t about some damn document! That’s what they’re doing! And let me tell you something, this is scarier than if it was based on the Documents Act! They are in search to try and destroy Trump! They conducted a criminal investigation! They failed! They have an investigation in New York with the attorney general that’s going to fail! They have a Democrat–”
Exit bumper music began to play as Levin’s voice rose. A frustrated Levin said, “I’m done.”
Hannity tried to salvage the situation by saying:
“No, no, no, finish that thought,” but there was no time for Levin to complete his comment.
