There was shock in a Manhattan courtroom yesterday when Fox News host Sean Hannity was named as the mystery client of President Trump’s embattled lawyer, Michael Cohen. The hearing was over the raids federal agents conducted to gain access to Cohen’s files; Cohen had asked that his third client’s name (the second is Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy) remain anonymous. Not so fast, said Hannity, who tweeted shortly after the bombshell claim, “Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective.”
