Sean Hannity Was a Client of Donald Trump's Lawyer Michael Cohen

President Donald Trump left attorney Michael Cohen and adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Cohen has been ordered to appear in federal court in New York Monday

After the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided Cohen's office, home, and hotel room, U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood ordered that Cohen's third client's name be released. A lot of people thought maybe Cohen paid hush money to a woman that Sean Hannity had an affair with, as he did for both Trump and Broidy, his other two clients for the previous year, but it really doesn't matter.

Hannity addressed the news on his AM radio show, claiming that while he never retained Cohen in the "traditional" sense, they still had attorney-client privilege.

He did admit to "occasionally" having "brief discussions with Cohen about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective". Let's say Hannity is being completely honest about only talking to Cohen about a few real estate issues and the Vanity Fair piece AP mentioned last night isn't accurate.

Hannity didn't mention his entanglements with Cohen even as he harshly criticized an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Cohen's office where his own communications were seized. When explaining that two different Playboy playmates were involved in the legal showdown, Colbert said, "I'm just glad Hef isn't alive to see his life's work dragged through the filth like this", in reference to Playboy's late founder, Hugh Hefner.

8-year-old boy slashes students with knife at elementary school
Sauk Rapids police declared that they are not going to press charges, the child needing counseling and guidance rather than jail. Staff and students at the school will be able to speak with mental health counselors if needed, according to KARE.

The disclosure question came up repeatedly on Monday - even on the Fox talk show "The Five".

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

"As I have been warning, Mueller is out to get the president and it appears at any cost", Hannity said last Monday on his Fox News program, hours after news of the raid broke.

He was referencing his good friend and former colleague from the "The Daily Show", who was known for his attacks on Fox News and his various feuds with Hannity. 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. Even on his own show, Hannity was criticized for not doing so.

Winnie Mandela: Soweto send-off for anti-apartheid fighter
Madikizela-Mandela had been left to tend to her own pain alone. "Mama you said to us we must come back to the ANC, we heard you". She spoke of the impact that Mam' Winnie had on her life, and referred to her as the "epitome of courage and strength".

Toensing, Sekulow and diGenova are all frequent guests on Hannity's Fox News show. And, if so, why would Cohen's lawyer refer to Hannity as a client? During the hearing, a judge ordered Cohen to reveal any other individuals he had as clients in 2018, with Sean Hannity being at the top of the list.

Attempts by critics to foment an advertiser boycott against Hannity in the past have failed, and there's yet to be any indication that this latest news is starting a new one. It is Daniels, who alleges a one-night tryst with Trump before he was president, who has become the most improbable yet critical player in the ongoing saga of Trump and his cascading controversies. In a statement announcing the retraction, the network said the piece "was not initially subjected to the high degree of editorial scrutiny we require for all our reporting".

"Now keep in mind, Cohen was never part of the Trump administration, or the Trump campaign", he said then.

Noah called out Hannity for being "unethical" for not divulging his relationship with Cohen.
