    FOX's Shep Smith, "elephant in the room", HANNITY is Cohen's client!

    Hannity is denying he EVER 'retained Michael Cohen in any formal matter'. WTF does that mean? Imagine for a second if that was Chris Matthews using Bill Clinton's 'bimbo eruption' lawyer while Matthews was reporting on Clinton OR TRUMP on air!! There wouldn't be enough bandwith on this board! And after OREILLY and AISLES long and sordid histories?? If he so much as touched a woman with unwanted 'gestures'....

    HANNITY NEEDS TO GO!


    Shep Smith addresses 'elephant in the room' that Hannity is Cohen's third client

    BY JOE CONCHA - 04/16/18 05:19 PM EDT 220


    Fox News anchor Shepard Smith described Sean Hannity being the third client of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, as the “elephant in the room” during his Monday afternoon program.
    Smith is the first Fox News anchor to mention the link on air.

    “Of course, for us, the elephant in the room is that Sean Hannity is said, according to court documents, to have been a third client of Michael Cohen,” Smith told viewers. “There’s a statement at The Hollywood Reporter supposedly from Hannity that says, ‘We’ve been friends a long time. He did some legal work for me.’ "

    “Hannity’s producers are working to contact him,” Smith continued. “Since it's now part of the story we’ll report on it when we know the rest of it. A lot of people here know his number so we’ll get on that in just a second.”
    The revelation that Cohen has worked for Hannity came after a federal judge in New York ordered that Cohen’s unnamed third client be identified during a hearing on Monday.
    The hearing was in connection with the documents seized during an FBI raid on Cohen's office, home and hotel room on April 9.
    Hannity responded on Twitter, dismissing the revelation by stating Cohen had never represented him “in any matter.”...

    I had no idea anyone was awaiting disclosures of other 'clients'. So this is brand new to me in the past couple of hours. Apparently others were awaiting a name. There are a lot of people calling for Hannity to be fired. Tell us what Hannity retained him for and if it isn't PAYING OFF women he slept with or manhandled, then maybe he can stay.

    ‘An extraordinary moment’: Reporters say courtroom audibly gasped when judge revealed Hannity is Cohen’s client

    Reporters at both CNN and NBC News on Monday noted that spectators were shocked when U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood compelled the revelation that the president’s attorney Michael Cohen is also representing Fox News host Sean Hannity.

    “It truly is an extraordinary day and it was an extraordinary moment in that courthouse when it was blurted out that Sean Hannity was the third client,” NBC News’ Tom Winter told MSNBC host Katy Tur, not that Cohen representing the Fox News personality in 2017 and possibly 2018 as well....

    The FBI raid was looking for more than ONE client's information? Is that why HANNITY's case(s) is 'of interest'? HUMMM.....

    Hannity does not present himself as an objective reporter.

    He's a conservative ideologue who devotes his show to pursuing a conservative agenda.

    So I'm not sure why this would matter even if he was a client of Cohen. No one watches Sean Hannity for objective reporting. They watch his show for entertainment and to see various points of view.

    Smith is different. He is an actual reporter who does a news broadcast.

    I don't understand what the big deal is.

    That Cohen represented Hanity in some sort of manner means nothing by itself. Even if Cohen did some stuff found to be illegal, it still means nothing by itself. Until it comes out that Hanity was paid to do something for Trump, and that something was illegal... I just don't understand what the excitement is all about.

    Listen to the exasperation the female Fox news person has when she has to name Sean Hannity on air.

    Oh my.

    The whole purpose of today's court proceedings was to establish whether Cohen actually even has legal clients. Last Friday, his legal team went to court asking for a temporary restraining order to prevent the materials confiscated during the execution of search warrants against Cohen from being examined by the FBI. Since this motion was based upon attorney client privilege, the judge asked how many clients Cohen represented. His legal team was unable to answer that question, so the judge ordered them to come back to court today (with Cohen) and to be prepared to answer the question.

    It's not exciting. It's just funny.
