Sean Hannity disputes Michael Cohen claim he was a client

Sean Hannity disputes Michael Cohen claim he was a client

The case stemmed from a referral from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, but is under the public integrity section of the office of the United States attorney for Southern District of NY. But how many times must Hannity embarrass his employer before it shows some spine? Earlier on "The Five", co-host Juan Williams also zinged his colleague for not disclosing the relationship.

Here are five questions I still have about the relationship between Cohen and Hannity.

The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise raid this month on Cohen's home and office.

"Michael never represented me in any matter, I never retained him in the traditional sense as retaining a lawyer, I never received an invoice from Michael, I never paid legal fees to Michael", Hannity said, before adding, "We definitely had attorney client privilege because I asked him for that but, you know, he never sent me a bill or an invoice or did I actually officially retain him".

For Broidy, Cohen helped broker a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model with whom he had a sexual relationship.

Late breaking news revealing Sean HANNITY as Michael Cohen's secret client literally knocked Stephen Colbert off his feet.

"We just spoke with his publicist here at Fox News, who says that he says they have been friends a long time, he never denied that he was his lawyer, that he did some legal work for him along the way, and that's the extent of that", Smith said.

After Hannity was named, there were audible gasps from the spectators.

A source familiar with the raids said last week that the information Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were seeking included information about payments to Daniels. And it should be clear by now that Cohen was not really an attorney, certainly not a competent one. Many people are scratching their heads, wondering why pre-President Trump doesn't enjoy attorney-client privilege with his lawyer.

At roughly the same time, Hannity, on his radio show, said it was odd to see his name appearing on Fox News and wondered aloud if he should release a statement.

When Michael Cohen was revealed to have reportedly paid adult film star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in "hush money" to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Donald Trump, the story dominated the news cycle. While Cohen has been in the news for hush payments he negotiated to women who said they had affairs with Trump and a top RNC official, Hannity claims the work Cohen did for him "focused nearly exclusively on real estate".

"What kind of legal advice doesn't involve a third party, unless", Kimmel said, pausing to ponder. He said the discussions were "almost exclusively about real estate".

Hannity also made this curious statement last night: "My discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions". But, the President of the United States was already a client!

Without mentioning his relationship with Cohen, he continued, "Now, what that means is, Mueller's witch-hunt investigation is now a runaway train that is clearly careening off the tracks". MSNBC did suspend Joe Scarborough and Keith Olbermann for political donations they made, so who knows if Hannity will have a similar fate.

Dershowitz wasn't the only one to criticize Hannity on the network yesterday. Trump is the only long-term client he's apparently ever had.
