Fox News hosts fail miserably defending Sean Hannity, MSNBC hosts respond Video

President Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen and adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Cohen has been ordered to appear in federal court in New York Monday

Inside the paper, the cover story, with the milder headline "Fox News host Sean Hannity revealed as Michael Cohen's mystery third client", notes that all eyes are now on Hannity's employer.

In a new filing on Monday, Mr. Cohen's lawyers claimed that agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized more than a dozen electronic devices during the raids, some of which, they added, contained information that had nothing to do with the investigation. But Judge Wood ruled that the lawyers must disclose Hannity's name. The other two are, of course, Donald Trump and Elliott Broidy, the just-resigned vice-chair of the RNC's fundraising committee.

But in a letter to Wood on Monday, lawyers for Cohen wrote that Cohen has had at least 10 clients in the past year, including seven that he provided "strategic advice and business consulting" to and three who received legal advice. But Hannity gets to play with the facts in terms of whether he's journalist or not and he's said both.

Remember that Cohen took out a home equity line of credit to make the $130,000 secret payment to porn star Stormy Daniels as part of a hush agreement to keep her from talking about allegations of an extramarital affair with Trump.

Until now, Hannity had not disclosed that he had a relationship with Cohen during his radio show or television program.

"They describe the documents as thousands, if not millions, of pages of documents subject to the attorney-client privilege, including audio recordings", said Avenatti, concluding, "this is going to get very, very bad for Michael Cohen". "He's a great attorney, about legal questions I had or I was looking for input and perspective".

Speaking on his Fox show last Monday, Hannity expressed similar sentiments, warning the raid represented a "dangerous phase" of Mueller's probe.

Russian Federation and its ally Syria called the attack fabricated and said no evidence of chemical weapons use exists in Douma. Saturday's airstrikes drew support from the European Union, Germany, Israel and other allies.

Later, CNN media analyst Brian Stelter said Hannity should have disclosed to his viewers that he had a relationship with Cohen, someone he was covering on his Fox News show. Then, a little later, he said that actually Michael is just a friend-friend who gives good legal advice, and that they actually they just talk about real estate, mostly.

Fox News has yet to comment on questions regarding Hannity's relationship with Cohen.

He pointed out that Hannity's tweets say that Cohen never represented him in a matter with a "third party".

On Comedy Central, "The Daily Show" host Trevor Noah said Hannity's actions are shady, even for him. "They're assuming - because I guess he did some type of work for some Republican guy - they're figuring, 'Oh, he must've done a big settlement case for Hannity.' That's not - no, that's not what happened".

He said the two men chatted occasionally, and his questions "focused nearly exclusively" on real estate.

"As to the one unnamed legal client, we do not believe that Mr. Cohen should be asked to reveal the name or can permissibly do so", the letter said. I did have occasional, brief conversations with Michael Cohen.
