Questions arise in Sean Hannity-Michael Cohen saga

"I've known Michael for a long time and let me be very clear to the media, Michael never represented me in any matter".

Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, told the court that Cohen had only three clients - Trump, Elliott Broidy, a prominent Los Angeles-based Republican fundraiser, and a third whom he declined to name.

"And this morning, Michael Cohen was forced to reveal the name of a mystery third client".

After he played a CNN clip revealing Hannity's name as Cohen's mysterious third client, Colbert suddenly disappeared from the camera frame. I think he's a really interesting phenomenon because he does blur these lines.

Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Hannity took some heat on Monday as it was revealed he had not disclosed that he once took legal advice from President Trump's personal attorney. "He's a great attorney, about legal questions I had or I was looking for input and perspective".

On his radio show Monday, Hannity said, "I never retained him in the traditional sense", and that he believed his conversations about legal questions were confidential. I did have occasional, brief conversations with Michael Cohen.

One of the guests on Hannity's show, lawyer Alan Dershowitz, told Hannity that "you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on the show".

Michael Cohen is under criminal investigation for personal business dealings and was ordered to appear in federal court Monday in NY to help answer questions about his law practice. He insinuated in another drawing that the recent fire at Trump Tower was done to burn evidence in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and that Russian President Vladimir Putin is colluding with Trump in Syria.

For Broidy, Cohen helped broker a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model with whom he had a sexual relationship.

While a defiant head coach and his program continued to do the show , they did change the name to "Bama Cuts". The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the lawsuit.

A source familiar with the raids said last week that the information Federal Bureau of Investigation agents were seeking included information about payments to Daniels. WUT? Is there some heretofore unknown threshold before attorney-client privilege kicks in?

"We have a situation unprecedented in the history of the U.S.", Ryan said. It "does not apply to business, lobbying, or public relations advice, even from a lawyer".

Carrey, though, shows little sign of stopping, given the prodigious number of artworks he's released so far, with subjects including Donald Trump, Sara Sanders, Jared Kushner, Stormy Daniels, and several other political figures.

"Fairness and justice - as well as the appearance of fairness and justice - require that, before they are turned over to the Investigative Team, the seized materials relating to the president must be reviewed by the only person who is truly motivated to ensure that the privilege is properly invoked and applied: the privilege-holder himself, the president", Hendon wrote.

Trump's lawyers responded that it was "unreasonable" to expect federal prosecutors to protect the president's rights - thus disputing the Justice Department's position.

Lawyers for President Donald Trump's personal attorney say investigators "took everything" during raids last week on his residence and office.

"I have eight attorneys for various things and I like to have people I like run questions by", he continued. Their integrity is unimpeachable.

"Now, we can see that Hannity wasn't just mad, he was scared", Noah said.

McKay told the court on Monday that 10 boxes of documents had been seized, as well as "hard drives, the electronic devices" with a lot more material. "They'll be like 'drink tummy tea, by the way, I'm sponsored by tummy tea, '" he joked. "All lawyers are deflated and concerned!"
