Hannity: Unprecedented filibuster of Hagel is ‘a big win’ for Republicans | The Raw Story

Hannity: Unprecedented filibuster of Hagel is ‘a big win’ for Republicans | The Raw Story


Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday congratulated Republicans for successfully using a filibuster to temporarily block a president’s nominee for secretary of defense — former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-NE) — for the first time in the history of the U.S. Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Wednesday said Republicans should feel “shame” for the unprecedented obstruction, but Hannity called the outcome a “major win for the GOP.”

“Republicans say it is premature to close the debate over the nominee and say that before that any confirmation vote will take place, they want answers from Hagel and the White House about what exactly President Obama was doing the night of the Benghazi terror attack that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans,” Hannity noted on Thursday.
