Speaking on his Fox show last Monday, Hannity expressed similar sentiments, warning the raid represented a "dangerous phase" of Mueller's probe. "I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party".
After offering his initial statements on Cohen, Hannity returned to Twitter late Monday afternoon to provide some detail, saying that his "de minimis discussions with Michael Cohen" had been "almost exclusively about real estate".
To be clear, Hannity should have disclosed any ties or "advice" he was getting from Michael Cohen before assailing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for raiding Cohen's offices.

"One of the anchors at the major pro-Trump news network has had an undisclosed relationship with the president's lawyer all this time, while Fox has not told that to its audience and while Mr. Hannity and Mr. Cohen have apparently spent considerable effort trying to keep that relationship secret".
He also said he had never received an invoice or paid legal fees for the lawyer's services.
Numerous personalities latching on to this most recent claim also went to the mat for other outlandish ideas, including the inexplicably prominent PizzaGate yarn that held Trump's 2016 rival Hillary Clinton was involved in a pedophile ring run out of the basement a Washington, D.C. pizzeria (the restaurant has no basement).

"But, you know, it's a complex situation when you're speaking to millions of people..." That doesn't suggest someone who is awash in cash. Was the legal work - and real estate advice - so minor that Cohen wouldn't accept money for it?
And courts have narrowly defined privilege as legal discussion between lawyer and client.
