As we discussed here, Fox’s Sean Hannity has been helping Jim Jordan to pressure his fellow House Republican holdouts who don’t want to vote for him for speaker, and as Axios reporter Juliegrace Brufke revealed Sunday, here’s the email that was being sent out to them.
Hannity attempted to defend himself on this Monday evening’s show and appeared to get a little testy over the blow-back:
