President Trump shared a tweet from Fox News host Sean Hannity on Friday promoting the conservative commentator's monologue focusing on taking action against "deep state" actors.

Trump retweeted Hannity's message promoting his show, which included an appearance from former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), another Trump ally who blasted the special counsel investigating possible ties between Trump's campaign and Russia.

"This week alone, we've seen unprecedented and potentially criminal leaks from the deep state to the liberal Washington Post," Hannity said in his opening monologue.

Hannity claimed that holdovers from the Obama administration - whom he and others on the right have characterized as part of a so-called "deep state" aimed at undermining Trump - were "creating collateral damage" for the country and slowing Trump's agenda.

"Here's the problem, whoever is leaking this information to the media, they need to be arrested, they need to be prosecuted. Everyone of them needs to be put in jail," he said.

"These people have now become a clear and present danger to this country and to you," Hannity said.

Trump allies have pushed back on a series of bombshell reports surrounding the probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the special counsel appointed to lead the Russia probe, Robert Mueller, was investigating whether Trump had obstructed justice. The probe comes in the wake of Trump firing FBI Director James Comey last month.

Trump tweeted Friday morning that he was under investigation for firing Comey and appeared to take aim at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had authored a memo that the White House initially used to justify the FBI chief's ouster.

"I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch hunt," Trump tweeted.

Hannity also railed against Mueller and Rosenstein during his monologue on Wednesday night, saying they both should "resign immediately."
