Hannity Says He Didn't Personally Discuss Real Estate Loans With HUD

The head of the conservative watchdog group commented on his personal Twitter account Sunday about an article in The Guardian reporting on some of Hannity's private real estate investment loans being guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Records show that Hannity used multiple LLCs to build a real estate portfolio with at least 877 residential units that he bought for a total of almost $89 million, the Guardian reported.

The popular far-right Fox News host has never mentioned any of these financial dealings on-air, despite interviewing HUD Secretary Ben Carson, nor when he's covered stories about HUD. Numerous properties were bought at discounts in 2013 after foreclosures, and others were bought with funding help from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Guardian said, citing public records.

According to the report, HUD recently increased Hannity's original $17.9 million mortgage for purchase in Georgia by an additional of $5 million. Hannity had not disclosed that fact, and said he only asked for Cohen's advice on some real-estate matters.

Hannity also railed against the state of public housing and made the false claim that home ownership was at a 51-year-low, the Guardian reported. HANNITY was also highly critical of President OBAMA for the foreclosure rate during his administration but did not disclose that he had invested in foreclosures at a discount while criticizing the President for them.

Natalie Portman refuses to attend ceremony for Israeli million-dollar prize
When Portman was announced as a victor , she stressed that she was "proud of my Israeli roots and Jewish heritage". It was to honor nongovernmental organizations working on women's equality and empowerment issues.

Hannity also never disclosed that he was also a client of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. "Mr Hannity is no different".

Hannity maintains what The Guardian described as a "property empire" the host has spent more than $90 million on through a series of shell companies.

Hannity is the hidden owner behind some of these shell companies, a fact his attorney did not dispute in a statement to the newspaper.

Cohen arranged a $130,000 payment to the porn star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 election to ensure her silence about an alleged affair she says she had with Trump in 2006.

Fox News on Tuesday said it was "surprised" to find out about Hannity's relationship with Cohen, but added that it conducted a review and stood by its primetime star.
