Hannity: ‘We need new leadership in the Senate’
Fox News’ Sean Hannity called for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to step down from his position as leader of the Republicans on Fox News’ “Hannity” Tuesday night.
Hannity said he had a “special message” for McConnell and any other Republican in the Senate who supports the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
“For every Republican in the Senate, let me be more clear, not one Republican Senator should be wasting a second of precious time, you’re off half the year anyway, on this post-presidential impeachment charade,” the “Hannity” host told viewers.
Earlier on Tuesday, McConnell said on the Senate floor that the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, which left five people died, was “provoked” by Trump and “other powerful people.”
“Mitch McConnell, I’m all ears,” Hannity said. “Tell the American people exactly what part of the president’s speech that you thought was violent. Was it when he urged his followers to peacefully and patriotically march to the capitol so their voices could be heard?”
Hannity then called Republicans who are in support of the impeachment “spineless.”
“Many spineless Republicans are joining forces with their Democratic friends to repudiate all things Trump,” Hannity said.
“Establishment Republicans have no backbone, no principle, no courage, no vision,” he continued. “Too many politicians in D.C. are just far too willing to go along, get along, and protect the swamp. And that is why conservatives like myself, well, we’re tired of these empty promises, and your rehearsed speeches, and had never getting anything done.”
Hannity continued, “We need new leadership in the U.S. Senate. You can represent the people of Kentucky. You’re showing basically right now that you are the king of the establishment Republicans that frankly have always had, and remain having, contempt for President Trump, but more importantly, the 75 million Americans that voted for him.”
Hannity went on to say that if the impeachment process continues, it could be the end of the Republican party.
“If the Senate, that you supposedly lead, …go along with this snap impeachment nonsense, it will be the end of the Republican party.”
Hannity reminded viewers that “freedom is a fragile thing. It’s never more than one generation away from extinction. This cannot, my fellow American citizens, happen on our watch. You know why? Because our children and our grandchildren deserve better, and Mitch McConnell, if you’re not going to fight, we deserve better.”

Letter reveals that Brian Laundrie’s mother vowed to help “dispose of body”
A letter from Brian Laundrie’s mother revealed her willingness to aid her son in hiding his crime. Roberta, Laundries mother, wrote “burn after reading” on the front and was allegedly committed to helping her son dispose of a body.
The letter has now become the epicenter of a civil suit the Petito family has brought against the Laundrie family. The Petitos are suing the Laundries for emotional distress due to the lack of communication with the Petito family when their daughter had gone missing.
The Laundrie family has claimed that the letter is irrelevant to the case because it was given to their son before the tragically fatal disappearance of Petito. On Tuesday during the hearing, Defense Attorney P. Matthew Luka said, “This document pre-dates Brian and Gabby’s trip so its creation really doesn’t have any relation necessarily to the unfortunate events that unfolded thereafter.” He added, “I know that some of the wording that was used in the letter is unfortunate and might suggest that it has some connection but it doesn’t.”
So what does the letter say?
“If you’re in jail I will bake a cake with a file in it. If you need to dispose of a body. I will show up with a shovel and garbage bags,” Roberta wrote to her son in the letter.
“If you’re in jail I will bake a cake with a file in it. If you need to dispose of a body. I will show up with a shovel and garbage bags.”
This is the Roberta Laundrie “burn after reading” letter she gave to Brian Laundrie.

According to reports, Roberta said the verbiage she used in the letter, specifically about the disposal of a body, “were common enough in our circle of friends and family to describe who you could turn to in the most troubling times of your life.”
Moreover, one user on Twitter responded to the tweet of the letter, speculating that Roberta’s letter “sounds like a Jocasta complex,” specifically in response to a section of the letter where she wrote, “not even the unthinkable can get between us.”
The Laundrie family continues to claim that they believe they have done everything the correct way and that Gabby Petito’s disappearance was just as much a mystery to them as to the rest of the world. They claim that they had no knowledge of her disappearance and that the letter is purely a coincidence, with no connection to the fatal loss of Gabby Petito. According to reports, the trial will be held in August of this year.
