Michael Cohen Sean Hannity
In April 2008 Sean revealed that he shared a lawyer, Michael Cohen, with with President Trump which caused a lot of controversies. Sean had breached journalistic ethics as he had failed to disclose that Cohen was his lawyer while at the same time taking to the Fox airwaves to defend Cohen and criticize those who investigated him.
On 16th April 2018 during a court hearing Cohen’s lawyer told the judge that Cohen had ten clients in 2017-2018 but did “traditional legal tasks” for only three: Trump, Elliott Broidy, and a “prominent person” who did not wish to be named for fear of being “embarrassed”. The federal judge ordered the revelation of the third client, whom Cohen’s lawyers named as Hannity.
On 16th April 2018 Fox News released a statement attributed to Hannity
“Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective. I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third party. We definitely had attorney-client privilege because I asked him for that.”
Hannity later said on his show that he “might have handed him 10 bucks” for the attorney-client privilege. He later tweeted that his discussions with Cohen were “almost exclusively” about real estate.
