A lawyer for Michael D. Cohen said in court on Monday that one of Mr. Cohen’s clients was Sean Hannity, the Fox News personality and an ardent defender of President Trump.
Lawyers for Mr. Cohen, the president’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer, had sought to keep the identity of one of Mr. Cohen’s clients a secret in a court challenge of an F.B.I. search of Mr. Cohen’s office.
But after several minutes of back and forth between the government and Mr. Cohen’s lawyers, Kimba M. Wood, a judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, ordered that Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, disclose in open court the name of a client in question, who turned out to be Mr. Hannity.
As the media continuously foams at the mouth screaming about how President Donald Trump is a threat to the media, a Democratic lawmaker is now directly calling for Fox News to fire Sean Hannity.
But Fox News on Tuesday issued a statement of support for prime-time host Sean Hannity amid backlash over his previously undisclosed ties to President Trump’s personal lawyer.
The network said in its statement that it was “unaware” of Hannity’s connection to Cohen:
While FOX News was unaware of Sean Hannity’s informal relationship with Michael Cohen and was surprised by the announcement in court yesterday, we have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support,” the network said
Hannity tweeted that he has never formally been represented by Cohen in any legal proceedings or paid him any fees.
“Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective,” Hannity tweeted. “I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party.”
I will take the liberty to say that Hannity is the best thing that has happened to Fox and if it weren’t for him we would be in the dark. Sean Hannity actually cares about the people of the United States that’s why he tells everything he can.
Do you think that the liberals will launch an attack on Sean Hannity?
