Fox News host Sean Hannity says Cohen legal consultation 'no big deal'
Apr 17, 2018, 18:13
"That's not enough under the law".
After Mr. Hannity was named, there were audible gasps in the courtroom.
In a filing earlier Monday, Cohen's lawyers said investigators "took everything" during raids last week on his residence and office. "And to be absolutely clear, they never involved any matter, any - sorry to disappoint so many - matter between me, a third-party, a third group at all".
For example, TheGatewayPundit.com, an unreliable site now being sued for defamation after accusing an innocent person of being the suspect accused of killing a counter-protester at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in August 2017, published a story with the extraordinarily misleading headline, "BREAKING: Sean Hannity Responds After Deep State Alleges He Was Michael Cohen's 3rd Client". He is a talk show host, but even still, Sean Hannity should have disclosed the special relationship he had with Michael Cohen if he's going to run a whole bunch of stories about the raid on Michael Cohen's office and say how that was so bad.
"I have the right to privacy", Hannity interjected.
Hannity seemed eager Monday to dismiss what he said was "wild speculation" that the legal matters he discussed with Cohen might be similar to the kinds of deals involving Trump and Broidy.
Lawyers for Cohen and Trump want to be allowed to decide which items seized from his home and office are protected by attorney-client privilege before criminal prosecutors see them.
Hannity, an outspoken supporter of Trump, has been a fierce critic of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

But she also said that to help ensure fairness and the perception of fairness, "a special master might have some role here". "I requested that privilege with him when I asked him, 'Well this just came up, what do you think about this?' or 'What do you think about that?' He assumed, and he kept his word, that they were confidential in attorney-client".
Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas McKay said in court that the government took images of the contents of most electronic devices, leaving them behind after the raids, and that cataloguing evidence might be delayed because some devices must be sent to an Federal Bureau of Investigation laboratory to "decrypt" because they require code words.
"If this is the biggest witch hunt in history, we're running out of spots on the broomstick", Kimmel also said, playing off a "witch hunt" phrase used by both Trump and Hannity to describe the Mueller investigation.
A United States judge indicated she would not grant a request by President Donald Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen to review materials seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation before prosecutors can see them.
Before his relationship to Cohen had been revealed, Hannity harshly criticized the special counsel Robert Mueller after FBI agents working for the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of NY raided Cohen's office during a criminal investigation into his business dealings.
