While Hannity dismissed speculation that he wants a role in a possible Trump administration, he did not deny offering advice to the GOP nominee. 

“Do I talk to my friend who I’ve known for years and speak my mind? I can’t not speak my mind,’’ he told Rutenberg.

“I’m not hiding the fact that I want Donald Trump to be the next president of the United States,” he said, adding, “I never claimed to be a journalist.”
