Sean Hannity took to Twitter to blast the National Review's editor following a column about Julian Assange that Rich Lowry wrote in Politico Magazine this week.

"But Sean Hannity of Fox News has a newfound soft spot for the accused rapist and scourge of America. A couple of years ago, Hannity tore into the Obama administration for not doing more to capture the WikiLeaks founder, and sympathized with the contention that Assange was the equivalent of a terrorist," Lowry wrote. "Now, the host says he was 'conflicted' about Assange back then, and he had qualms about his work only because 'I believe in privacy.' "

In a barrage of tweets throughout the day on Saturday, Hannity defended his views on the WikiLeaks founder and accused the National Review of being an "enabler" for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonBudowsky: Closing message for Democrats Election Countdown: Dems outraise GOP in final stretch | 2018 midterms already most expensive in history | What to watch in second Cruz-O'Rourke debate | Trump raises 0M for reelection | Why Dems fear Avenatti's approach GOP mocks Clinton after minor vehicle collision outside Mendendez campaign event MORE.

Hannity often wrote that "NRO" is equal to "HRC."

Lowry responded to Hannity, insisting he has not been "enabling" Clinton and has been "critical" of her for decades.
