Tapper on Cohen repping Hannity: 'Go home 2018, you're drunk'

The former FBI director told the 'Late Show' host that he was

When it was revealed Monday that Fox News host Sean Hannity was the so-called "third client" of President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen, Hannity's network was quick to move on from the topic.

Fox News host Shepard Smith acknowledged Hannity's connection to Cohen on the air Monday. "Go home 2018, you're drunk".

"Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter", Hannity said in an e-mailed statement provided to Reuters. "I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective", he tweeted.

- Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 16, 2018I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party.

Hannity is an outspoken defender of Trump and is known to communicate frequently with the president.

The pursuit of Cohen by prosecutors in New York's southern district presents a second front of legal peril for Trump, who reacted furiously to the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids and claimed they were part of the same supposed "witch-hunt" led by Mueller that has blighted his presidency. McKay stressed that the team of government lawyers who would review the seized material would be "walled off" from their colleagues, like himself, who are pursuing the criminal inquiry against Cohen.

Daniels is engaged in a separate civil legal fight over $130,000 she received in a 2016 agreement arranged by Cohen to stop her from discussing a sexual encounter she says she had with Trump a decade earlier.

"They're hoping for the worst when it relates to any conservative", he said. In a letter filed with the court last Monday, Cohen's lawyers said that Cohen had a solo law practice and had at least 10 clients during this time.

Cohen has argued that some of the documents and data seized from him under a warrant are protected by attorney-client privilege or otherwise unconnected to the investigation. And on Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen negotiated a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model who claimed she had an affair with leading Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy that led to her being impregnated. He said Cohen reached out to him after being contacted by Keith Davidson, an attorney representing the woman, and said he retained Trump's lawyer "after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson".
