‘The Daily Show’ compares Devin Nunes’ Mueller hearing questions to Sean Hannity statements

“The Daily Show” posted a video compilation of excerpts of Rep. Devin Nunes’ (R-California) line of questioning at the July 24, 2019, Mueller hearing that appear to mirror statements made by Fox star Sean Hannity.

  • The clips include a variety of instances where Nunes’ phrasing exactly or closely matches statements made on air by Hannity over the course of the investigation.
  • It’s worth noting that many of the phrases are relatively short and contain “catchphrases” related to the Mueller Report, which could at least partially explain the matching phrases.
  • Many of the phrases have also become de facto talking points among Trump supporters and surrogates.
