Host Sean Hannity stated Monday he expects to see criminal charges brought against former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, who was fired Friday night just before he was to receive his pension.
In an appearance on "Fox & Friends," Hannity said "serious crimes" at the top levels of the Justice Department and FBI need to be investigated and questions must be answered - including why Hillary Clinton was not indicted over her private email server.
"It is the biggest abuse of power in the history of this country," said Hannity, adding that Clinton and her campaign are the ones who colluded with Russia by "buying Russian lies" in the form of the so-called Steele dossier.
Hannity said he believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller is coming to the end of his investigation and said the talk of President Trump trying to remove Mueller is "fake news."
After McCabe's firing, his former boss, James Comey, took to Twitter to offer a defense, touting that "the American people will hear [his] story soon."
Mr. President, the American people will hear my story very soon. And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not.
— James Comey (@Comey) March 17, 2018
Hannity said that Comey, whose book will be released next month, still has a lot of questions to answer about the Clinton investigation and the use of the dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant against Carter Page.
McCabe called his firing an “attack on my credibility" and "part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally.”

President Donald Trump is crafting a way to combat intellectual property theft by China and protect U.S. shows such as HBO’s “Game of Thrones” from being pirated online.
The HBO hit series has taken the crown as the most pirated TV show on the internet for the sixth year in a row. According to the Motion Picture Association of America, 90% of the viewership of U.S. movies in China is illegal.
“Everybody is in agreement, both parties, the EU, that something has to be done about this piracy from China,” Horizon Investments Chief Global Strategist Greg Valliere told FOX Business’ Liz Claman.
The National Bureau of Asian Research puts the cost of Chinese intellectual property theft to the U.S. economy as high as $600 billion annually.
Russian agents running election-related propaganda campaigns through targeted ads and fake political events. And before the Russians took center stage, there were purveyors of fake news who spread false stories to rile up hyperpartisan audiences and profit from the resulting ad revenue.
In the previous cases, Facebook initially downplayed the risks posed by these activities. It only seriously grappled with fake news and Russian influence after sustained criticism from users, experts and politicians. In the case of Cambridge, Facebook says the main problem involved the transfer of data to a third party — not its collection in the first place.
Each new issue has also raised the same enduring questions about Facebook's conflicting priorities — to protect its users, but also to ensure that it can exploit their personal details to fuel its hugely lucrative, and precisely targeted, advertising business.
Facebook may say its business model is to connect the world, but it's really "to collect psychosocial data on users and sell that to advertisers." said Mike Caulfield, a faculty trainer at Washington State University who directs a multi-university effort focused on digital literacy.
Late Friday, Facebook announced it was banning Cambridge , an outfit that helped Donald Trump win the White House, saying the company improperly obtained information from 270,000 people who downloaded a purported research app described as a personality test. Facebook first learned of this breach of privacy more than two years ago, but hasn't mentioned it publicly until now.
