This will be interesting... Anonymous sources close to the Obamas have disclosed that while discussing the Fusion GPS funding, Barack Obama recently boasted, "Go ahead and have the FBI clowns raid the Perkins Coie offices! I don't give a hoot, I dare them to do it. I've got nothing to hide!"

Cohen is not a lawyer and Sean Hannity is not a journalist. Cohen should be disbarred from NY, and Hannity should be fired from Fox News.

Hannity doth promote to much . Ive often wondered why Hannity is so committed to trump . In the end if trump is found guilty of a crime the Hannity is done... and Ive always wondered why Hannity is so committed to him that he devotes nearly a 100% of his air time defending him? Give yourself a little wiggle room Sean ..could be that trump aint really your guy .

i have to be honest, i actually dont think hannity did anything. i think cohen threw hannity under the bus and over exagerrated their relationship because he doesnt have many clients and needs to protect the president. if he couldnt provide the names of anymore clients they would have thought that was real shadey that he only had two clients

My, my, the little church boy seems to have put his foot in it this time. Nothing surprises me anymore. So this is what the USA has become. The Republican party has changed values during the last year. Everything goes today, last year was the total opposite. Everything had to be investigated, never in my life have I witnessed such a turnaround.

Nest, the stories of hush money Hannity paid through Cohen. It seems to be Cohen's specialty.

Johnnie Cochran defended Oj Simpson in a murder trial. Does that now mean that every client from then on is a suspect of murder because they shared the same lawyers?

So Sean Hannity was never a "client" of Michael Cohen, but claims his conversations with him about legal matters are protected by attorney client privilege. I don't think he can have it both ways.
