Alan Dershowitz Chides Sean Hannity to His Face Over Michael Cohen Connection

Jimmy Kimmel mocks 'my pal' Sean Hannity over Trump lawyer bombshell

While Fox News quickly did their best to defend [VIDEO] Sean Hannity in regards to being a client of Michael Cohen, MSNBC hosts on "Morning Joe" had a different take.

It's worth reinforcing that the sole reason that it was important to know Cohen's clients is that the court was considering which of the documents seized in that Federal Bureau of Investigation raid would be covered by attorney-client privilege.

The disclosure came as Cohens attorneys tried to persuade a federal judge in NY to delay prosecutors from examining records and electronic devices seized in the raids on the grounds that many of them are protected by attorney-client privilege.

Number Two client is Elliott Broidy, former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee. The government argued that since Cohen doesn't have "a lot" of clients there should be no privilege.

Sean Hannity shares a world view with President Donald Trump and on Monday it was revealed, with some reluctance, that he shares a lawyer, too.

"Shockingly, turned out to be my pal Sean Hannity", Kimmel said of Cohen's third client. In late 2016, he paid adult-film star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her agreement not to discuss an alleged sexual encounter with Trump.

Co-host Mika Brzezinski ripped into Hannity for not disclosing that he was a client of Cohen, saying, "he's lying to his viewers".

The original video that was shared on Twitter on Thursday evening has been liked almost 1 million times and has since gone viral. The two men were released later that evening around 2 am after prosecutors declined to arraign them, DePino tweeted.

"My discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him question. I never paid a legal fee".

"As I have been warning, Mueller is out to get the president and it appears at any cost", Hannity said last Monday on his Fox News program, hours after news of the raid broke.

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". "It's perfectly logical to think that if you're friendly with somebody, that you might ask him for legal help", co-host Brian Kilmeade said.

Hannity denied on Twitter that Cohen has represented him. "I assumed those conversations were confidential but, to be absolutely clear, they never involved any matter between me and a third party".

So far, revelations over Trump's colorful past - like the "Access Hollywood" tape, on which he boasted about groping women, or controversial comments unearthed from Howard Stern's radio show - have not significantly damaged him.

He added that his questions "almost exclusively" focused on real estate. "This is with the media in this country does", Hannity said. I've always found it interesting when The Texas Tribune or Reason have admitted to getting money from somewhere when the outlets cover a certain person or organization. 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.
