"I never gave him a retainer".
First is President Trump, who Cohen helped to pay off a porn star with whom Trump allegedly had an affair.
I know he's a Democrat, I know Hannity once pulled a gun on him, but I'm still surprised to see a Fox contributor broaching the big ethical criticism of their 9 p.m. guy on their own airwaves before he's even had a chance to address the situation on his show. "I requested attorney-client privilege with him, and assumed our conversations would be confidential, but they have never involved any matter with him and any third party".
But those present in the packed courtroom say there were audible gasps when it was revealed Hannity and Mr Trump also share Mr Cohen as their lawyer. While money is generally not a requirement for invoking that privilege, the notion persists in popular culture and has been used as a plot device on numerous TV programs, including "Breaking Bad". At least one Democratic House member has called on Hannity to be fired for failing to disclose his relationship with Cohen to Fox's viewers but it's nearly impossible to imagine that.
The disclosure came as a NY judge disappointed a lawyer for Trump by letting prosecutors proceed with the cataloguing of evidence including multiple electronic devices that were seized in raids while a system is set up to ensure that records protected by attorney-client privilege aren't disclosed to investigators.
Hannity was named by Cohen when he was forced to disclose a third "mystery" client after the raid.

"What that means is that Mueller's witch-hunt investigation is now a runaway train that is clearly careening off the tracks", Hannity said of the raid. I prefer real estate. Tucker Carlson said Hannity had a right to try and defend his privacy.
Responding to the revelation, Hannity on Monday called his dealings with Cohen a "minor relationship" and said he had asked questions that "focused nearly exclusively on real estate". "You could have said that you had asked him for advice or whatever". Outside afterward, she said Cohen has acted like he's above the law and that she and her lawyer are committed to making sure everyone learns the truth. Another, the stripper and actress Daniels, sat in the back of the gallery's public courtroom as part of her efforts to keep attention on her story, relating to what she says is a past affair with Trump. Turns out Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen also worked for a familiar face from cable news!
Daniels told reporters after the court session that she showed up to make sure that the seized records are not destroyed.
