That's the refrain from Sean Hannity, after lawyers for President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, revealed in court on Monday that the Fox News host is one of only three clients that Cohen represented this year and last.

Without critiquing - you know, millions of their regular listeners are actually those of other political views, tuning in to get nothing more than mad - or supporting their views, here's a piece of news that everybody across the United States of America should read.

Maddow explained the that the Steele dossier allegations are "just" allegations, but noted when Cohen wanted to refute the charges, he luckily "knew a guy". Instead, the network issued the following statement, attributed to Hannity: "Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter". He may even neglect to inform his viewers about possible conflicts of interest, as he might have done in his reporting (or whatever he would call discussing news stories on the air) about the FBI's April 9 raid on Cohen's office and residences. We're talking boxes worth of documents, more than 12 electronic devices, according to Cohen's attorney.

The third legal client directed Mr Cohen not to reveal the identity publicly, Mr Cohen's lawyers, Todd Harrison and Stephen Ryan, wrote.

The government says, no, no, it's not. The other two clients include President Trump and Elliott Broidy, a GOP fundraiser. "I don't think [Fox News will] do it, but I think they should fire him", Freedman said.

Speaking during his opening monologue on "Hannity" Tuesday night, Sean unloaded on the mainstream media's "breathless" anti-Trump obsession; saying they "hate conservatism" and have absolutely "no credibility".

"I understand he doesn't want his name out there, but that's not enough under the law", she said, after hearing legal arguments from Robert Balin, a lawyer for five news organizations including The Associated Press.

Hannity responded on his radio show, noting that the headline was a big nothing burger.

"I never retained his services". I never paid a legal fee. "I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective". Hannity appeared to be kind of trying to set himself apart from the sort of work that Cohen did on behalf of Trump and Broidy. Those men are involved in cases in which Cohen allegedly arranged payments to women to keep them quiet about alleged sexual encounters.
