Sean Hannity built real estate empire with HUD aid while championing HUD

Frank Bruni Alex Wagner and Gov. Jay Inslee

Fox News Media Relations Senior Manager sent NCRM an email in response to an article we published on the Hannity housing fiasco. At the time, Hannity was quick to blame then-president Barack Obama for the crisis, while not disclosing that he was scooping up those foreclosed properties for his empire.

Hannity has a portfolio that obtained funding from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, under the National Housing Act loan program, which was first guaranteed under President Obama's administration, a fact he did not mention when interviewing secretary Ben Carson past year.

The popular far-right Fox News host has never mentioned any of these financial dealings on-air, despite interviewing HUD Secretary Ben Carson, nor when he's covered stories about HUD. In January 2016, Hannity said there were "millions more Americans suffering under this president" partly because of foreclosures.

Several of Hannity's properties were bought at a discount after their previous owners defaulted on their mortgages in 2013, the Guardian reported.

Hannity also never disclosed that he was also a client of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

Amazon Has Over 100 Million Prime Members
Consumer intelligence research has shown that Amazon Prime members shop on the site almost twice as often as non-prime members. The company has never released Prime revenue numbers, average order value per member or member retention rates.

Documents filed in Michael Cohen's court case have revealed that his client and Fox News host Sean Hannity has quietly amassed a real estate portfolio spanning almost 900 residential units across several states. I had no role in, or responsibility for, any HUD involvement in any of these investments.

On Sunday, The Guardian revealed that Hannity had spent the last decade investing heavily in real estate in the United States, using a series of shell companies to amass more than 870 homes across the country.

"I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show", Dershowitz said. The properties are located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Texas, and Vermont.

Fox News on Tuesday said it was "surprised" to find out about Hannity's relationship with Cohen, but added that it conducted a review and stood by its primetime star.
