Jimmy Kimmel Gleefully Taunts Hannity For Being Outed as Cohen's Mystery Client

Trump Worlds Collide as Cohen Meets Stormy Daniels in New York Court

Hannity said on Fox Monday night that his conversations with Cohen "never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions".

Cohen and his attorneys appeared in federal court Monday in NY to challenge the FBI on the materials seized in the raid. During the hearing, a judge ordered Cohen to reveal any other individuals he had as clients in 2018, with Sean Hannity being at the top of the list.

Lawyers for Cohen and Trump have argued that the seizure could lead to violations of attorney-client privilege.

With Cohen by their side Monday, lawyers initially resisted revealing the name of the third client for privacy reasons.

It was not immediately clear what legal work Cohen provided Hannity. Brzezinski said about Hannity's failure to disclose his ties to Cohen while also defending the lawyer on TV.

Trump's attorney, of course, is Michael Cohen, the guy who paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 of his own money to keep her from talking about her alleged sexual encounter with Trump before the 2016 election.

Noah criticized Hannity for not disclosing that he was Cohen's client, despite reporting on him many times on his show.

"Michael never represented me in any matter", Hannity said, adding: "I never received an invoice from Michael. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective".

It was not until the last segment of his show that Hannity really dove into the "wild speculation from the mainstream media" about his connection to Cohen.

Actor and comedian Jim Carrey continued his attacks on Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday night with a drawing of Hannity as a manatee on Twitter.

"The President trusted Mr. Cohen as his fixer for years, he trusted him with his innermost secrets, and I think that the chickens are about to come home to roost", Avenatti said outside court.

A spokesperson for Fox News did not immediately respond to questions from NBC News about the relationship between Hannity and Cohen. On his radio show, Jones has repeatedly said that the 2012 shooting that killed 26 people - including 20 first-graders - never happened. "They never involved any matter between me or a third party at all".

He said the two men chatted occasionally, and his questions "focused nearly exclusively" on real estate. Cohen said he had three clients: Trump; Elliott Broidy, the former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, who impregnated and then paid a woman with whom he had an affair; and a third party that Cohen said did not want to be identified.

There's an irony to the law of the tabloid jungle by which Trump lived for years possibly coming back to bite him. A lawyer's communications with a client are not covered by the privilege if they did not involve legal advice or were used to further a crime or fraud.
