Sean Hannity's 'bromance' with Trump

Sean Hannity's 'bromance' with Trump

"This is insane, Cohen only has two other clients and all he does for them is pay off mistresses, which raises the obvious question: who did Sean Hannity have sex with?"

"Let me set the record straight, here's the truth: Michael Cohen never represented me in any legal matter", Hannity said. The task could be complicated because, for the a year ago or so, Cohen has used an email signature identifying himself as "Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump". "Never received an invoice, never paid any fees, might have handed him $10, 'I definitely want attorney-client privilege on this.' Something like that", he said.

On Monday, Cohen told a federal judge that he had given legal advice to three people in the past year. Colbert asked. "I'm going to with the first one, because I know Sean Hannity, and delivering factual information is not his strong suit".

In a series of tweets on Monday afternoon, Hannity downplayed his relationship with Cohen, saying he merely asked him some legal questions and "Cohen has never represented me in any matter".

The Cohen investigation is being carried out by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY, after a referral from Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the probe of Russian election meddling and suspected contacts with Trump's campaign. While money is generally not a requirement for invoking that privilege, the notion persists in popular culture and has been used as a plot device on numerous TV programs, including "Breaking Bad".

"This is with the media in this country does", he said hours after the news broke on Fox News Channel's "Hannity".

Stormy Daniels was in the courtroom on Monday for the arguments, after which the federal judge rejected a request from President Donald Trump and Cohen's team for a temporary restraining order that would have kept federal prosecutors from reading files seized last week.

"You should have said that", Dershowitz said.

"The client's name is Sean Hannity", Ryan said.

"I never retained him in any traditional sense", Hannity said.

Noting that Hannity had come under pressure from left-wing groups - Media Matters, for one, targeted Hannity's advertisers over the Seth Rich story - Sherman said he was told that Hannity "got paranoid" and hired Cohen to look into those groups.

"Now, what that means is Mueller's witch-hunt investigation is now a runaway train that is clearly careening off the tracks", Hannity said then. 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. I did have occasional, brief conversations with Michael Cohen, this great attorney, about legal questions I had.

"I have the right to privacy", Hannity interjected. Prosecutors say Cohen is being investigated for an undisclosed crime related to his personal business dealings.

A lawyer for Trump, Joanna Hendon, asked in a filing on Sunday to be allowed to review documents that in any way relate to the president, which she described as being seized amid a "highly politicised, even fevered, atmosphere".

But regardless of what the host claimed, he still appears to have had a close relationship, if not merely a professional one, with the president's personal attorney.
