Trump & Hannity's 'fair and balanced' hush money lawyer

  • Sean Hannity Donald Trump

He is facing a criminal inquiry, which the president has strongly criticised.

Stelter thinks Hannity should have disclosed the relationship to his viewers, but said the Fox News host should not be considered a journalist. As of press time, Hannity continues to deny that he was a client of Michael Cohen and still remains on the air at Fox News.

With Hannity's photo on the screen, Noah put his hands together as if in prayer, looking up to the sky while mouthing the words "thank you".

During a hearing at a packed courtroom in Manhattan on Monday, he was named as a client of Trump's longtime personal lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen.

Agents were seeking evidence on various matters, including a $130,000 (£90,000) payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The consequences of Hannity's misstep will be interesting.

Did Sean Hannity learn about attorney-client privilege from an episode of Breaking Bad? "Even Instagram models have higher ethical standards". The FBI raided Cohen's office last Monday as part of an investigation into possible bank fraud and election law violations. One was obviously Trump. Now maybe you hate Trump and you're happy about that, but what are the rest of us losing in this process? "You were in a tough position because A: You had to talk about Cohen and B: You didn't want the fact that you had spoken with him to be revealed". You want attorney-client privilege, don't you?

"I still am struggling not to laugh".

"Pro tip for the president", Colbert also offered, "when your lawyer needs a lawyer, you need a lawyer". He reappeared slouching in an armchair, drinking a glass of red wine, rubbing his stomach, seemingly experiencing pure bliss. "Jon Stewart, after the show, I'm gonna come over and we're just gonna spoon", he said. Both inquiries have provided fodder for Hannity's prime-time cable show and nationally syndicated radio program.

Now the top ratings draw at Fox News, Hannity has been described by colleagues as enjoying free rein inside the network.

Ahead of Colbert's interview with James Comey, the comedian also spoofed ABC's melodramatic teaser for its highly anticipated interview with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, which aired Sunday.

But U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said in hearings Friday and Monday that if Cohen wanted to cite those rules, he would have to divulge the names of the legal clients. "And it's not your baby. This is with the media in this country does", Hannity said.

"That sounds normal - he has a lawyer he doesn't pay", Kimmel snarked. "They leave me alone".

Kimmel and Hannity had feuded publicly in recent weeks. And he was not about to let the news about his Cohen connection change that.

In an effort to distinguish his interactions with Cohen from those of Trump and Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy (the other two clients), Hannity implied that his own exchanges with Cohen did not entail the silencing of any alleged sexual partner, as these exchanges did not involve any third party.

"Not one of any issue I ever dealt with Michael Cohen on ever - ever - involved a matter between me and any third party", Hannity added. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees.

"My discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him question".

Cohen's lawyers were required by a federal judge in NY to disclose the names of his clients Monday as part of an argument over attorney-client privilege and how it applies to records seized from Cohen last week by the FBI.

Over on CBS's "Late Show", Stephen Colbert was downright jovial about the news.

"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. "Go home 2018. You're drunk".
