The Daily Beast reports:
Michael Cohen represented Fox News host Sean Hannity, Cohen’s lawyers were forced to reveal in federal court on Monday. In response, Hannity told the Wall Street Journal that him and Cohen “have been friends a long time. I have sought legal advice from Michael.” Cohen was present at a hearing where his attorneys are challenging the FBI’s seizure of documents he claims are protected by attorney-client privilege.
MSNBC: Michael Cohen's third client is Sean Hannity
CNN: Michael Cohen's third client is Sean Hannity
FOX NEWS: Sean Hannity went undercover as Michael Cohen's client to make sure no one has done nothing wrong, and everyone has done everything right. Perfectly. Perfect. Right.

3. Sean Hannity https://t.co/c3Z0LDQkKf

Until you admit that you've had a massive conflict of interest in bashing the Cohen searches and trying to discredit the warrants that gave rise to them, I don't think you get to criticize other people for having a potential conflict of interest.

After reporting on the Cohen raid without ever revealing he was a Cohen client, @seanhannity can never talk about ethics again. So radically dishonest. He's like a dark parody of an actual journalist.

Cohen's 3 clients:
#1. Trump: Cohen negotiated a $130k payoff to Stormy.
#2. Broidy: Cohen a $1.6m payoff for a playmate to get an abortion.
So the only question is who did @seanhannity fuck and pay off?

Since Cohen doesn’t practice any discernible law besides bully tactic NDAs, I can’t WAIT to see what comes out on @seanhannity

Fox has serious questions to answer about why Hannity was allowed to rant on the Cohen raid without disclosing this. Did they not know?https://t.co/Ku3H3hdjGx

Sean Hannity being a client of Michael Cohen’s while also doing a bunch of segments on the raid, etc. without disclosing he’s been a client of Cohen’s is honestly not even cracking the top-3 most professionally/journalistically problematic things Hannity has been doing since 2016

I'm sure Sean Hannity sought legal advice from Michael Cohen for something completely innocuous (eyes roll around in sockets like a slot machine and come up two cherries).
