Cohen Debacle Continues as Sean Hannity's Name Thrown Into Mix

Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen exits a hotel in New York City U.S

Dershowitz's criticism came after courts revealed Hannity as a previously secret client of Cohen. Attorneys for Trump and Cohen opposed that plan. Cohen's and Trump's attorneys have argued that the raids were inappropriate, with the president's team saying in a filing this week that move was "disquieting to lawyers, clients, citizens, and commentators alike".

On CBS' The Late Show, Stephen Colbert was quick to address the news that the "sad neck with hair" revealed Hannity as his mystery client.

Wood replied, "I understand he doesn't want his name out there, but that's not enough under the law".

After Mr. Hannity was named, there were audible gasps in the courtroom.

Once you know Hannity has personal skin in the game with Cohen, "it's fun to go back and look at everything he said about the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid".

"So there is a scenario in which if they seized Michael Cohen's documents inadvertently we might be able to learn to what degree did Sean Hannity try to go after his enemies with shady tactics like private investigators". They prefer the ordinary procedure of reviewing the documents with a panel of prosecutors unrelated to the investigation.

"Let me set the record straight".

The judge rejected Cohen's and Trump's request for a temporary restraining order because prosecutors agreed to hold off reviewing the records seized in last week's raids. And that he never retained Cohen or pay him for a service.

Hannity said he "occasionally had brief discussions about legal questions" with Cohen, and that he assumed those discussions were protected by attorney-client privilege.

Cooper made reference to the Fox News motto in summing up his view of Hannity's ethical conundrum.

Hannity's name emerged after the judge pressed Cohen to divulge the names of the clients he's worked with since the 2016 election, whose privileged communications might be contained within his files.

Because hers is one of the most unique stories in recent history. "Mam'Winnie's life was one of service. Trust us when we say, Juju was just getting started. "I'm very grateful to be here today".

"You should have said that", Dershowitz said. Instead, Hannity dismissed the idea that he should have said anything about his personal ties to Cohen, and criticized the "mainstream media" for its interest in the matter.

After offering those initial statements on Mr. Cohen, Mr. Hannity returned to Twitter late Monday afternoon to provide more detail, saying that his "de minimis discussions with Michael Cohen" had been "almost exclusively about real estate".

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

"I have the right to privacy", Hannity interjected. He bent over backwards to deny the relationship, claiming nothing more than a few harmless chit-chats over real estate. Prosecutors say Cohen is being investigated for an undisclosed crime related to his personal business dealings.

But that didn't stop Kimmel from reveling in the news Monday of Hannity's relationship with Cohen. That is not the case, Hannity insisted on his radio show.

Framed by a portrait of Robert Mueller with the words "Mueller off the rails" behind him, the top-rated U.S. cable news star raved on air about the Russian Federation probe consuming President Donald Trump. Daniels was in the courtroom on Monday for the arguments.

The last to enter court, she was among the first to leave.

But she also said that to help ensure fairness and the perception of fairness, "a special master might have some role here".

The April 9 raid on Cohen sought information on a variety of matters, including a $130,000 payment made to Daniels, who alleges she had sex with a married Trump in 2006.

On the trip south, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders sought to put distance between Trump and Cohen, saying: "I believe they've still got some ongoing things, but the president has a large number of attorneys, as you know". The payment, to be made in installments over two years, was meant to keep her silent about their relationship.

"If this is the biggest witch hunt in history, we're running out of spots on the broomstick", Kimmel also said, playing off a "witch hunt" phrase used by both Trump and Hannity to describe the Mueller investigation.
