What. The. Actual. F…..
In a shocking discovery, it has been exposed that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen also represents Trump’s favorite butt-buddy: Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Cohen had told the court earlier he had at least 10 clients between 2017 and 2018, including the President, and the former GOP fundraiser Elliot Broidy who acknowledged paying $1.6 million to a Playboy model with whom he had an affair.
Judge Kimba Wood ordered Cohen to attend and provide information about his clients as she weighs an emergency action by Cohen’s attorneys to stop prosecutors from reviewing more than a dozen electronic devices and documents seized during a FBI raid of Cohen’s office, home and hotel room last week.
Cohen’s lawyers had publicly identified Trump and Broidy as clients, but only revealed Hannity’s name after the judge ordered them to.
Remember back when Hannity called it a “dangerous new phase” when the FBI raided Cohen’s office? Hahahaha. NOW we know WHY.
Does this explain the completely bizarre Trump/Hannity bromance? Does Trump have something on Hannity? Why did Hannity hire Cohen? Not sure yet, but Twitter speculates.
If Fox News does not remove Sean Hannity from the air for the remainder of this investigation, or at least prevent him from commenting on anything related to it, they are not a remotely credible media outlet.
In other news, Fox News is no longer a remotely credible media outlet. https://t.co/YBlWlEBPDz

Maybe Michael Cohen can shed some light on why Sean Hannity is so obsessed with the alleged “pee tape”? pic.twitter.com/Ul19bpyyq6

On @CNN, @BrookeBCNN just asked the key question: why would Sean Hannity of Fox News go to such lengths to hide his relationship with Michael Cohen? Surely his viewers wouldn't have cared if he'd been up front? So why take the risk of reputational damage if it were to come out?

Michael Cohen's services for his clients:
Trump: hush money to a porn star
GOP fundraiser Elliot Broidy: hush money to a Playboy model
Sean Hannity: probably something totally innocent

So today we learn that @SeanHannity has been railing on the legal actions being taken against Michael Cohen and all the while Cohen was also Hannity's lawyer. Perhaps Cohen has a #PeeTape with Hannity in it, too. Sean is #NotaJournalist, but he may be another #goldenstandard.

Turns out the "Deep State" lives in Sean Hannity's pants. .

So, moving on…. Fox News has no comment so far about Sean Hannity’s violation of journalistic ethics in failing to disclose his business relationship with Michael Cohen…. https://t.co/PpfPJq79UW

Hannity has responded.
Sean Hannity : I have 8 attorneys, I have sought advice from Micheal Cohen but he has never represented me nor has money ever been exchanged.
— Kambree Kawahine Koa (@KamVTV) April 16, 2018
Sean Hannity just said on his radio show that he got legal advice from Michael Cohen on occasion but never paid for his legal advice.
Why the hell would a lawyer give free legal advice? Oh that’s right, because he was probably instructing Hannity on how to conspire with Trump!
