Fox News host Sean Hannity on Wednesday night instructed conservative commentator Tomi Lahren, who was making her debut as a contributor for the network, to “go after” Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera over the importance of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
Hannity began the segment by discussing how the FBI this week rejected a Freedom of Information Act request to release files about the bureau’s investigation into Clinton’s private email server during her tenure as secretary of state, citing a lack of public interest in the matter.
“How would this not be in our best interest? It’s in everybody’s best interest to get the truth, right?” Hannity asked.
Lahren agreed with Hannity and said it is funny that Clinton’s privacy somehow trumps the public’s right to know what was in her emails.
“When you use a private email on a private server, your privacy rights are out the window when you’re the secretary of state of the United States of America,” Lahren said. “You don’t have privacy anymore! She chose to do this. This is on her.”
