Sean Hannity Says Michael Cohen Never 'Represented' Him: 'I Never Retained Him'

When it was revealed Monday that Fox News host Sean Hannity was the so-called "third client" of President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen, Hannity's network was quick to move on from the topic. "And he stood up and named him as Sean Hannity", Fox News correspondent Laura Ingle said on air just after 3 p.m. Monday. "I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party".

Cohen, Trump's fiercely loyal and pugnacious lawyer, was in Manhattan federal court to ask the judge to limit the ability of federal prosecutors to review documents seized from his offices and home last week as part of a criminal investigation.

They called the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids on Cohen's home, office and hotel room "an operation disquieting to lawyers, clients, citizens, and commentators alike", and repeatedly referred to their client, whom they represent in a personal capacity, as "the president". Reports at the time said the raid was personally approved by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

James Harrison announces 'final retirement' with Instagram post of kids' photos
He eventually became an NFL Defensive Player of the Year, five-time Bowler and two-time first-team All-Pro in Pittsburgh. Harrison signed a two-year deal last spring that would have kept him in Pittsburgh through his 40th birthday.

The search sought information on a variety of matters, including a $130,000 payment Cohen made to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who says she had sex with Trump in 2006.

Prosecutors suggested in their filing that while Cohen "holds himself out as a practicing attorney", he is actually exaggerating the extent of his work in an attempt to cast a wide net of attorney-client privilege over the records seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The judge said she could not decide about how seriously to treat Cohen's and Trump's claims about attorney-client privilege unless she knew what clients Cohen has been representing. He also facilitated the Broidy payment after a Playboy playmate said he impregnated her.

Eagles release CB Daryl Worley shortly after arrest
On questioning, the police allege that Worley had a gun in his vehicle and wasn't willing to be cooperative with the police. The Eagles wasted no time releasing defensive back Daryl Worley after he was arrested early Sunday morning.

"I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective", Hannity wrote in the statement. He said Cohen reached out to him after being contacted by Keith Davidson, an attorney representing the woman, and said he retained Trump's lawyer "after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson". I never paid legal fees to Michael.

Cohen's attorneys said the client did not want to be associated with their client.

But that didn't hold up with Wood, who insisted that the third client's name be disclosed publicly at Monday's hearing.
