On Wednesday, Fox News host Sean Hannity called on the witnesses of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to destroy their personal phones before they turn them over.
During the opening monologue of “Hannity,” he started out by referring to the investigation as a “Mueller witch hunt” where they are “demanding that witnesses turn in their phones.”
He then went on to claim that his tactics were used by Hillary Clinton during her investigation into her email server.

Hannity continued, “If I were to advise them to follow Hillary Clinton’s lead: Delete all your emails and then acid-wash the emails on the hard drives and your phones, then take your phones and bash them with a hammer to little itsy-bitsy pieces, use BleachBit, remove the SIM cards, and then take the pieces and hand them over to Robert Mueller and say: ‘Hillary Rodham Clinton, this is equal justice under the law.'”
However, Hannity’s advice could be seen as tampering with evidence which is a federal crime that is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Hannity’s advise comes as Mueller asked witnesses to turn in their personal phones so his team could look into private messages on encrypted messaging apps. The request by Mueller happened after campaign chairman Paul Manafort was accused of attempted witness tampering using encrypted messaging apps.
