Hannity revealed as mystery client of Trump's lawyer

Sean Hannity

One of Trump's lawyers, Joanna Hendon, had asked US District Judge Kimba Wood for a temporary restraining order so they could review the information themselves and then turn over material that wasn't privileged.

Following the news that Hannity was a secret client of Cohen, he took to Twitter to explain that Cohen "has never represented [him] in any manner".

"My discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions", Hannity said. He wrote, 'I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third party.' I don't know what kind of legal advice doesn't involve a third party, unless maybe Sean Hannity was thinking about suing himself?

Later he added on Twitter the legal advice he got from Cohen was "almost exclusively about real estate". He has never thought that the little man, or especially women and even more women like me, mattered.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow said that she was "struggling not to laugh" after hearing the court revelation, and described the situation as "just nuts".

Is Hannity Truly Michael Cohen's Client? But Judge Wood said she would still need the names of those other clients, and rejected his efforts to mask the identity of Mr. Hannity, a client Mr. Cohen had said wanted to avoid publicity. "The second option, namely to not punish Hannity, would strip away the last vestiges of its claims to be a news channel operating in the journalistic mainstream, leaving it with no defense whatsoever against charges that it is running a propaganda operation".

One was Trump. Another was Elliott Broidy, a Trump fundraiser who resigned from the Republican National Committee on Friday after it was revealed that he paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate with whom he had an extramarital affair. It would have been nice for Hannity to admit he was at least friends with Cohen because it at least puts a lens on his commentary.

During a court appearance on Monday, it was revealed that Hannity was the third client of Cohen during 2017 to 2018.

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.

But if that's true, why did Cohen's lawyer identify Hannity as a client in federal court?

The president dispatched attorneys who asked the judge to grant them access to Cohen's files obtained in the raid, but they were denied. I did have occasional, brief conversations with Michael Cohen.

If attorney-client privilege can be so casually breached versus the president of the United States, just how secure do you think it will remain for the rest of us?

He only has three clients and apparently he works for free.

Hannity responded by saying it was a "minimal" relationship.
