Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Represented Fox News Host Sean Hannity, Lawyers Forced to Reveal

Michael Cohen represented Fox News host Sean Hannity, Cohen’s lawyers were forced to reveal in federal court on Monday. “We have been friends a long time. I have sought legal advice from Michael,” Hannity told the Wall Street Journal. Cohen was present at a hearing where his attorneys are challenging the FBI’s seizure of documents he claims are protected by attorney-client privilege. Cohen’s other two clients in recent years are President Donald Trump and Elliot Broidy, a Republican fundraiser. Cohen negotiated non-disclosure agreements with Trump and Broidy’s alleged mistresses.

On his radio show following the news, Hannity didn’t say why he worked with Cohen. “I think it’s pretty funny. It’s very strange to have my own television network have my name up on the lower third.”
