Embattled congresswoman Michele Bachmann will grant an “exclusive” interview to Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity Thursday night (8 p.m.), her first interview since announcing that she will not run for a fifth term.
The Minnesota Republican has declined repeated interview requests from the Star Tribune to discuss her retirement from the U.S. House and the multiple investigations of alleged financial improprieties by her 2012 presidential campaign.
Hannity is a long-time supporter of Bachmann’s. In 2010, Hannity and his wife Jill gave a combined $10,000 to Bachmann’s political action committee, MichelePAC. Among the allegations in a Federal Election Commission (FEC) complaint against Bachmann is a claim that she improperly used funds from her PAC to underwrite secret payments to aides in her presidential campaign.
