While raging against House Democrats for having the gall to request the unredacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, Fox News’ Sean Hannity claimed Democrats want to jail the attorney general and compared them to … Saddam Hussein.

“They’ve lost their mind. A Democratic congressman wants to handcuff — get this — the attorney general of the United States, have the sergeant of arms drag him before the committee or to prison,” he said. “No trial, no charges, nothing. Well welcome to Saddam Hussein’s USA!”

Hannity’s take — that Democrats have collectively lost it by accusing Attorney General William Barr operating as a shill for President Trump — has been increasingly embraced by conservatives in recent days, including Trump.
