Alan Dershowitz (!) says that Hannity should have disclosed that he was a client of Cohen before discussing the FBI raid last week.

Heavy metal thunder… (giant) head out onna highway…
Have said it before, will say it again: Murphy the Trickster God is *not* a subtle scripter.
Of all the law firms, in all the towns, in all the world, Sean Hannity walks into Michael Cohen’s.

The fact that Sean Hannity has been railing against the FBI's investigation of Michael Cohen without disclosing that Michael Cohen IS HIS LAWYER is wildly unethical, and also perfectly on-brand for a Fox News host https://t.co/5aJQt3Sqh7

So, Michael Cohen goes to court and tries to keep Sean Hannity’s emails and texts out of feds’ hands.
Hannity then jumps the gun thinking Cohen just implicated he paid off a mistress… and goes on a tear that ruins the whole scheme.
This. Is. Priceless.

For context, Margaret Sullivan, just the day before Hannity lost it on-air, had a smart piece in the Washington Post warning us not to get too invested in dreams of a Trump impeachment:
President Trump does — and that might make all the difference if he were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein or even special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.
The pro-Trump media, led by Fox, would give cover, and huge swaths of Americans would be encouraged to believe that the action was not only justified but absolutely necessary.
Night after night — for many months — Trump’s sycophant-in-chief, Sean Hannity, has been softening the ground. And his message is sinking in.
In a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, three of four Republicans said they believed the Justice Department and the FBI are actively working to undermine Trump…
And now Sean Hannity, Galactic Brain, has taken his own mooted credibility, torn it to pieces on-air, set his feet on fire, and pissed on himself to douse the flames. Good job, Sean!
Hannity keeps saying 'real estate' and I keep thinking how Cohen paid Stormy by mortgaging his own house. https://t.co/BhJRM805DB
