Michael Cohen President Donald Trump's personal attorney has

Cohen's lawyers revealed during a hearing Monday on the FBI's raid of his office and residence that he has been the attorney for the staunch Trump supporter for the past two years. This immediately presented a serious journalism ethics problem, since Hannity hosts a show on which he has repeatedly discussed Cohen without disclosing that Cohen has been representing him.

Sean Hannity was forced to defend himself on his own Fox News show Monday night after one of his guests criticized him for not revealing he was a client of President Donald Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen. "He's a great attorney, about legal questions I had or I was looking for input and perspective".

Hannity said on Fox Monday night that his conversations with Cohen "never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions".

Fox News host Sean Hannity disputes a claim that he was a client of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney - an assertion Cohen's lawyers made in court on Monday during a surprising turn in the legal spat over records seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I would guess Cohen claimed Hannity as a client to protect any notes he might have taken about their conversations. "Judge Kimba Wood ordered Hannity's identity revealed even though Hannity had specifically requested his name to remain private, which is his right", Carlson said, before reading a statement from his colleague. "I never retained his services".


"I still am struggling not to laugh", Maddow said.

Toensing told The Atlantic that she was Hannity's lawyer "at that time" but declined to say if she still represents him. Broidy, a former GOP fundraiser, resigned from the Republican National Committee on Friday after acknowledging making a $1.6 million payment to a model he impregnated.

But White House aides have also expressed worry that they can control Trump less at his palatial Florida estate, where he is known to seek out counsel from club members and get revved up by their at-times provocative advice.

Earlier this month, Kimmel and Hannity were embroiled in a feud that played out both on their respective shows and on social media.


Speaking on his Fox show last Monday, Hannity expressed similar sentiments, warning the raid represented a "dangerous phase" of Mueller's probe.

CNN was first out of the gate to land a dig on the conservative heavyweight, running a segment arguing that he should never have enjoyed lawyer-client privilege.

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.

"What else haven't you been telling us?"


"Now keep in mind, Cohen was never part of the Trump administration, or the Trump campaign", he said then. And, if no money was exchanged but the men did have a business relationship, was there some other sort of payback offered by Hannity to Cohen?
