    Sean Hannity Exposed Link To Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen


    Earlier this month, Donald Trump’s long time lawyer Michael Cohen’s house was raided by the F.B.I. In this raid, the F.B.I. seized business records, emails, and many documents referring to Cohen’s clients. In this raid, the F.B.I. found that Cohen has had three clients in the past year, one being the president himself, one being a major GOP fundraiser named Elliot Broidy, both using Cohen to pay alleged affairs they had, but the third client may surprise you: Fox News anchor Sean Hannity.

    Sean Hannity has been one of the loudest supports of Trump in the last two years, going for voicing his opinion on him on Fox, to even dining with him at the White House. His relationship with the president was made even deeper when in a court hearing against Cohen on Monday, April 16, his third client of the year was exposed when Kimba M. Wood, a judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, ordered Cohen to disclose the name of the client in question—who turned out to be Mr. Hannity.

    While the exact work Cohen did for Hannity is unclear, Hannity denied all involvement with Cohen, tweeter before 4pm the same day, “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,” adding, ““I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party.”

    Hannity finds himself in a difficult place, in company of two men who used Michael Cohen to cover up affairs they had that could end their careers, which could be a situation Hannity finds himself in soon.
