FOX News Host Sean Hannity responded to claims he may have been targeted by the Obama surveillance zombies.
Saying he was upset about this claim might be putting it too lightly.
Mike Cernovich, the journalist who broke the Susan Rice unmasking story, tweeted Tuesday that Hannity and Blackwater founder Erik Prince were under surveillance by the Obama admin.
BREAKING NEWS! Obama administration spied on Sean Hannity and Erik Prince, per Chuck Johnson.

The tweet stated, ‘BREAKING NEWS! Obama administration spied on Sean Hannity and Erik Prince, per Chuck Johnson.’
Charles Johnson is a reporter from GotNews.com. When making this claim, Johnson did not cite any sources.
“I have been told that when Susan Rice says that they were not surveilling the transition members – I don’t know if that part’s true. But I can you 100% they were surveilling people who were on this sort of unofficial transition,” said Johnson.
“So these were people who were helping out on the side. People like Erik Prince. People like Sean Hannity. These were folks having their phones monitored. Their phones were drained of power.
“I can tell you 100% Sean Hannity was surveilled and had to change all of his material, change all of his situation on his phone,” he added.
Sean initially responded via twitter, ‘Thank u all for heads up. I have zero knowledge of any surveillance vs me or unmasking of me by The Obama administration. Nothing shocks me!’

Hannity went into depth on this alleged surveillance claim on his show and that is when he really lost it.
“I have zero knowledge of any surveillance against me, any unmasking against me by the Obama administration,” Hannity said. “But considering that’s the same Obama administration that used the IRS to go after conservative groups, nothing shocks me. But do I have any personal knowledge of it? No, I don’t. Am I worried about it? No. “
After stating that, when Hannity addressed the idea the Obama admin. could have been surveilling him to negatively impact the Trump administration… he certainly gave them a piece of his mind.
“I will sue the living pants off of anybody who did it — I promise you that. And I will stop at nothing. And I have the means to attack this for years. And I’ll do it. And I’ll do it on behalf of every American’s right to privacy and to be able to make a confidential phone call or send a text or an email to their friends and loved ones,” he said.
“Good grief. And if I want to talk to somebody in the Trump administration, I ought to have the privacy that is afforded every American. And the fact that Gen. Flynn had his whole life turned upside down because of illegal unmasking and intelligence leaking — that’s why this is so important. You’re next, you understand?” Hannity continued.
“I don’t know the answer. Everyone is still writing me like a thousand times. I don’t know if it’s true or not. How would I possibly know if surveillance took place on me or unmasking of me? I don’t know. I have no idea. So, everyone that is trying to look out for me — I am not worried at all,” he said.
“As a matter of fact, I’ll be very rich if in fact it happened,” he added. “And I’ll sue Obama himself, Ben Rhodes, Susan Rice — I’ll sue them all by name in a civil action.”
