U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said that she had faith in the Justice Department's so-called "taint team" to isolate materials protected by attorney-client privilege, but added that she would consider allowing a neutral third party requested by Cohen to weigh in.As beleaguered cable host Sean Hannity faces the professional crisis that comes with being outed as a client of President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen, Carrey jumped into action and reimagined the conservative pundit as a water-dwelling mammal.
Hannity said on his radio show that he had never retained Cohen "in any traditional sense", but that he occasionally went to him with legal questions. He wrote in a second tweet, "I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party".
An attorney for President Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen named Fox News host Sean Hannity as one of Cohen's clients Monday, inspiring late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah. "My questions exclusively nearly focused on real estate".
"It was a minor relationship", Hannity said.
"The question for me is, why Sean didn't disclose this earlier", Williams said.
Though Cohen once said he "would take a bullet" for Trump, he is aware of the possible outcome - including potential prison time - and has expressed worry about his family, said a person who has spoken to the lawyer in recent days but is not authorized to discuss private conversations.
Toensing told The Atlantic that she was Hannity's lawyer "at that time" but declined to say if she still represents him.
"There are some really good journalists at Fox News, how are they feeling right now?" Fox could certainly come down harder on Hannity if it turns out he's lying about just talking to Cohen on real estate stuff, but it really depends on the subject.
Kimmel also criticized Hannity's response to the news, in which he said Cohen has "never represented" him.
Hannity nodded to transparency concerns last May when Sekulow appeared on his show, introducing him as someone "who's done legal work for me in the past". Sekulow has been a frequent guest on Hannity's Fox show. I never paid Michael Cohen for legal fees.
"If this is the biggest witch hunt in history, as they say it is, we're running out of spots on the broomstick", Kimmel joked. Maddow has been a constant critic of the president and his team, and drew 4.1 million viewers when she released Trump's tax returns live on air a year ago. And in Sekulow's several appearances on Hannity's show since becoming a Trump attorney, Hannity did not acknowledge their business relationship.
Trump, who was in Florida on Monday, said all lawyers are now "deflated and concerned" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen. He looks a bit foolish for going nuts over the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's office given the fact Hannity didn't disclose the relationship with Cohen.
