    Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's mystery client is Fox News host Sean Hannity

    • Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity was a client of Michael Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal lawyer.
    • In a court filing earlier on Monday, lawyers for Cohen refused to identify Hannity, saying it was "likely to be embarrassing or detrimental to the client."

    Given Cohens typical cases and clients I have no idea why Hannity would be embarrassed

    That is very strange since Hannity saidr: “Michael never represented me in any matter, I never retained him in the traditional sense as retaining a lawyer, I never received an invoice from Michael, I never paid legal fees to Michael.

          Oh I agree. It's not like Hannity OR Cohen would ever lie about anything

            Hannity said he has received legal advice from Cohen but never paid for it. Maybe Cohen had some material relating to the Hannity advice that was seized in the FBI raid.

              Hmmm sounds familiar. Correct me if I am wrong but Trump never paid Cohen for Story Daniels either

                more nothing...

                Attorneys confirmed that Fox News host Sean Hannity was the third individual who received Cohen's legal help.

                "We have been friends a long time. I have sought legal advice from Michael,” Hannity said on his radio show in response.
                But he also said that Cohen did not formally represent him.

                "Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees," Hannity said in a statement issued after his radio show. "I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective. I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third party."

                So, are we to assume then he just wanted a copy of the templated Non-Disclosure Agreement, and he did the actual third party work himself

                  If Hannity was never a client then there is no client attorney privilege.

                            Exactly, that's the point. According to Hannity, he was never a client, never paid for any service, etc etc. According to Cohen, Hannity was a client: Cohen said he had 10 clients since 2017, seven of them were just “strategic advice and business consulting” and the other three are Trump, Broidy, and Hannity.

                            But in NY and most states, you dont need to pay in order to become an attorney's client. It starts the moment you seek legal advice from an attorney and expect attorney-client privacy. And Hannity himself said "I assumed those conversations were confidential"... It seems to me Hannity has that right, even if he now tries to distance himself.
