Sean Hannity disputes Michael Cohen claim he was a client

Besides supporting Trump on his show, Hannity reportedly talks to the president regularly and, last week, Trump even tweeted out a promotion, telling his followers that Hannity was going to have a big show coming up.

As beleaguered cable host Sean Hannity faces the professional crisis that comes with being outed as a client of President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, Carrey jumped into action and reimagined the conservative pundit as a water-dwelling mammal. "I never paid legal fees to Michael but I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective". "Says journalism is dead and yet he calls his show real news and has anonymous sources".

The legal showdown began last week when FBI agents searched Cohen's office, home, hotel room and safe-deposit box, seizing records and documents as part of a probe by federal prosecutors in NY into possible bank fraud and wire fraud.

Cohen's attorneys initially disclosed that Cohen represented Trump, GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy and a third client who wished to remain anonymous.

"Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, was in court today desperately trying to keep his small client list private", Kimmel began during his Monday night show.

But, for at least those three other clients, during 2017-2018, Cohen was performing "more traditional legal tasks", the letter said.

Wood adjourned the hearing Monday without making a ruling.

He continued: "And I assume that those conversations were attorney-client confidential". "Maybe not the complete role, but some role". And it should be clear by now that Cohen was not really an attorney, certainly not a competent one.

Hannity wasn't willing to give an inch.

In office, Trump has stuck with the method that orchestrated a generation of media coverage in NY on the basis that all publicity is good publicity, even if it has often jarred with the decorum expected of the presidency.

"This is an extraordinary case", she said. He never disclosed that he is also represented by a member of that legal team! "I think a taint team is a viable option", Wood said.

Kimmel opened up his late night show by saying, "This morning, Michael Cohen was forced to reveal the name of a mystery third client".

The disclosure came as Cohens attorneys tried to persuade a federal judge in NY to delay prosecutors from examining records and electronic devices seized in the raids on the grounds that many of them are protected by attorney-client privilege.

The firebrand commentator is a close informal adviser to Trump, who has urged the public to watch Hannity's show, during which he regularly attacks the special counsel investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 campaign.

Wood ordered Cohen's lawyers to disclose the name of his third legal client, Fox News presenter Sean Hannity. As a result, the criminal lawyer argues, both are protected by attorney-client privilege and can tell him whatever they want, because he's legally bound not to share it with anyone else.

The search sought information on a variety of matters, including a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had sex with a married Trump in 2006. Cohen also facilitated a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model who said Broidy got her pregnant, The Wall Street Journal reported last week.
