Sean Hannity, Fox News' biggest star, has long been one of President Donald Trump's staunchest defenders on cable TV, and now it turns out that they also share a lawyer.
Lawyers for Michael Cohen revealed the association with Hannity in a New York City courtroom Monday, saying the host is one of Cohen's three recent clients.
Cohen, who is under criminal investigation by U.S. prosecutors for possible bank and wire fraud, is Trump's longtime lawyer. Cohen said he paid $130,000 to adult-film star Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, for her silence on an alleged affair with Trump. Cohen's other client is Elliott Broidy, a fundraiser who resigned from the Republican National Committee after it was disclosed that he and Cohen paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate with whom he had an extramarital affair.
