Sean Hannity responds after being named as Michael Cohen's mystery client

The Funniest Tweets About Sean Hannity Being Michael Cohen's Third Client

The investigation of Cohen - which has pitted the president against his own Justice Department - took another unexpected turn Monday with the courtroom revelation that one of Cohen's legal clients was Fox News commentator Sean Hannity. A little dramatic. Her bodyguards must cost a pretty penny, because they're quite effective. What to expect from Mulvaney hearing on CFPB Lewandowski to House Intel Dems: "I'm not answering your f--ing question": report MORE (Calif.), called for Hannity to be suspended over the news.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood ruled that the government would have to provide Cohen's attorney with the seized documents in order to review it.

"President Trump's long-time personal attorney, Michael Cohen, just had his office, his home, and his hotel that he was staying in raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation today in an early morning raid".

I mean, he does seem like a sweet guy.

The judge did not make a decision but said she was considering appointing a special master - not because of legal precedent but in the interest of avoiding the appearance of bias in the politically charged case.

The raid sought information about a variety of matters, including a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Fox News hosts have a habit of taking vacations just as damaging stories begin to swirl around them, leading some critics to say it's part of a Fox News playbook: Jesse Watters, Bill O'Reilly, Laura Ingraham and even Hannity have taken breaks amid past advertiser boycotts.

So, it's possible that this Cohen news is moot from an ethical perspective: Hannity is way too compromised to compromise himself further. Hannity, he added, was only a plot point in the vast right-wing narrative, if a totally bonkers one: "Yeah, of course that's the logical next step in this insanity". The unexpected naming of Hannity made him the latest prominent media personality to be drawn into the investigation's cast of unlikely supporting characters.

"I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third party". I never paid Michael Cohen for legal fees.

"In response to all the wild speculation, I want to set the record straight". Daniels sat with her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, who told reporters they were there to help ensure protection for the integrity of the seized documents, some of which they believe pertain to the Daniels agreement. The judge said Cohen's lawyer had to identify all three, and Hannity's name came out.

The disclosure came as a NY judge disappointed a lawyer for Trump by letting prosecutors proceed with the cataloguing of evidence including multiple electronic devices that were seized in raids while a system is set up to ensure that records protected by attorney-client privilege aren't disclosed to investigators.

They said that prosecutors had already intercepted emails from Mr Cohen and executed the search warrants only after discovering that there were no emails between Mr Trump and Mr Cohen.

Mr Trump's attorney says the computers, phones and documents should be protected under attorney-client privilege.

"Cohen, who is Trump's lawyer, was in court today with his lawyer".

"Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past", he tweeted Sunday.

But she also did not immediately give prosecutors the go-ahead to have an independent or "taint team" of investigators review the seized material for items that could be covered by attorney-client privilege. "All lawyers are deflated and concerned!"
