Sean Hannity Dismisses Relevance of Relationship with Michael Cohen

In court on Monday (April 16), the legal team for President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was forced to identify the name of a third Cohen's client - a mystery person whom he initially didn't want to name.

The disclosure came Monday during a hearing in a federal court in NY where lawyers for Cohen and Trump asked a judge for permission to review documents and records FBI agents seized from Cohen's office, home and hotel room last week as part of their investigation of Cohen's finances.

"My discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him question". And, if Cohen wanted to brag about his client list, why would his lawyers work to keep Hannity's name a secret and only disclose it when directed to do so by Judge Kimba Wood?

Hannity told Dershowitz that his interaction with Cohen was "minimal".

It's not yet clear what services Cohen said he allegedly provided Hannity.

If Cohen is such a great attorney, why wouldn't Hannity - who made about $36 million previous year - want to compensate him for his valuable advice?

"I have the right to privacy", Hannity replied, ignoring the ethical problems surrounding his conflict of interest.

"I don't know how you get around that". Dershowitz began to reply before Hannity interjected and said he had only a "minor relationship" with Cohen. It makes the fact Hannity had a conversation or three with Cohen really not a big deal in the grand scheme of things.

While Fox News quickly did their best to defend [VIDEO] Sean Hannity in regards to being a client of Michael Cohen, MSNBC hosts on "Morning Joe" had a different take.

Then on Monday, the news broke that Hannity was named in court as one of Cohen's clients, along with President donaldTrump. Many people are scratching their heads, wondering why pre-President Trump doesn't enjoy attorney-client privilege with his lawyer.

Cohen's lawyers resisted revealing the name of the third client, saying it would be embarrassing and unnecessary. Legal analyst Carrie Cordero said that, unless Cohen was formally retained, Hannity should never have expected confidentiality.

It was clear that Hannity had planned to focus Monday's show on former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, whose book full of criticisms of Trump launches Tuesday.

Cohen arranged a $130,000 payment to the porn star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 election to ensure her silence about an alleged affair she says she had with Trump in 2006.

Hannity opened his remarks by noting the media hyperfocus on that news.

Already unable to comprehend Cohen's confession, Colbert raised another question that could potentially lead to a new revelation. He said that he might have paid Cohen a small fee, after all, and said he did not merely assume that their conversations were privileged but rather sought assurances.
