he mainstream media is apparently very desperate for a scandal. As a result, they are spreading a false rumor that Sean Hannity was a client of Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen. However, as Sean Hannity explained, this is fake news.
So how did Fox News respond to the controversy? “While FOX News was unaware of Sean Hannity’s informal relationship with Michael Cohen and was surprised by the announcement in court yesterday, we have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support,” writes Fox News in a statement.
Hannity also defended himself from the phony reports. “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,” tweeted Hannity.
“I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party,” continued Hannity.
“In response to some wild speculation, let me make clear that I did not ask Michael Cohen to bring this proceeding on my behalf, I have no personal interest in this proceeding, and, in fact, asked that my de minimis discussions with Michael Cohen, which dealt almost exclusively about real estate, not be made a part of this proceeding,” explained Hannity.
