BREAKING: NBC News confirms that, after being forced to disclose the name in court, Michael Cohen says his third client – after Donald Trump and Elliot Broidy – is Sean Hannity.

Long time listener, first time caller…
Just reached Sean Hannity to ask if he had any response to being announced as Michael Cohen’s previously unnamed third client. He said he’s in the middle of recording his radio show.

Based on the culture of Fox News, Brad Moss’s conjecture seems apt.
Why on earth would @seanhannity need to hire a "fixer" whose specialty seems to be hush agreements for high profile men caught up with younger women?
Why, gee, you know, I just can't think of any reason at all. None. None at all.

Sean Hannity being a client of Michael Cohen’s while also doing a bunch of segments on the raid, etc. without disclosing he’s been a client of Cohen’s is honestly not even cracking the top-3 most professionally/journalistically problematic things Hannity has been doing since 2016
