So Fuckface Hannity is threatening GOP senators

that he'll give out "the phone number" if they allow witnesses?

It's not clear what number he's babbling about, but how stupid does he think his viewers are?

Somebody please put him out of our misery. He needs to go back under a rock.

19. What is your beef with this?

 

Witness intimidation is enough of a crime. Why are you so hell bent on calling it jury tampering when there is no actual jury? Yes, technically the senate is the so called "jury" but this is not a typical court case and this is not a typical jury. Give it a rest.

3. I would call that a threat and the law enforcement needs to address that he is threatening US

Senators. He must be really emboldened since he sniffs MF45s butt so much.

6. That's what I'm wild-ass guessing.

Which is why I made the crack about him thinking his viewers are dumb.

7. Aren't All Public Servants' Phone Numbers Public ANYWAY?

If I wanted to find out ANY member of Congress' phone number, it would take like 5 seconds on Google.

8. Witness tampering. Which is a crime.

 

"In the United States, the federal crime of witness tampering is defined by statute at 18 U.S.C. 1512, which is entitled "tampering with a witness, victim, or an informant."The statute is broad; the Justice Manual notes that it "proscribes conduct intended to illegitimately affect the presentation of evidence in Federal proceedings or the communication of information to Federal law enforcement officers" and applies to tampering with witnesses in "proceedings before Congress, executive departments, and administrative agencies, and to civil and criminal judicial proceedings, including grand jury proceedings."

Witness tampering is a crime even if a proceeding is not actually pending, and even if the testimony sought to be influenced, delayed, or prevented would not be admissible in evidence. Section 1512 also provides that the federal government has extraterritorial jurisdiction to prosecute the offenses described by the section.

Witness tampering is a criminal offense even if the attempt to tamper is unsuccessful. The offense also covers the intimidation of not only a witness himself or herself, but also intimidation of "another person" (i.e., a third party, such as a witness's spouse) in order to intimidate the witness."

14. They haven't been impaneled yet, so it's not quite jury tampering.

 

It is still just witness tampering.

15. They're not going to screen them and pick 12 of them...



The Senate is the jury. Sending them crap like that is jury tampering.

20. Except it's not a criminal proceeding, or even civil, it's a political one.

So he threatened to give out their publicly available number if they took a political action he doesn't want to see? I think they call that "free speech." I can't see where there is any real available redress in the absence of a threat against their person or some other actual crime.

12. Wonder if most senators don't already hold a reserve number.

Publishing private numbers has been a means of attack for some time. Of course, it doesn't take long to get another number, getting it to those who need it would be where the disruption is.

Another one in a sheer state of panic. I wonder what he's hiding.

18. Not to reply to my own thread,

but reading some of your comments, I'm wondering if it's just a talking point to get his viewers to tell each other about how pissed he is and make him look more active and righteous. It's all about the ratings and the commercials.

I reiterate: he's playing them for idiots.
