Michael Cohen’s Mystery Client Is Sean Hannity Because of Course It Is

"...this big. No, really, that's what Trump said. So I went on air with it, and the lamestream media just mocked it. That's how much they hate the guy."Jeff Malet/NC via ZUMA

Michael Cohen’s mystery client has been revealed:

An unnamed client of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, has been revealed as Fox News host Sean Hannity.

….A lawyer for Cohen at the Monday hearing said that Cohen performed secret legal work for Hannity. “We have been friends a long time. I have sought legal advice from Michael,” Hannity said in response to being revealed as Cohen’s third client, according to a Wall Street Journal reporter.

I would never have guessed this, but now that I know it seems somehow inevitable.

THE TRUTH...

is the first thing despots go after. An unwavering commitment to it is probably what draws you to Mother Jones' journalism. And as we're seeing in the US and the world around, authoritarians seek to poison the discourse and the way we relate to each other because they can't stand people coming together around a shared sense of the truth—it's a huge threat to them.

Which is also a pretty great way to describe Mother Jones' mission: People coming together around the truth to hold power accountable.

And right now, we need to raise about $400,000 from our online readers over the next two months to hit our annual goal and make good on that mission. Read more about the information war we find ourselves in and how people-powered, independent reporting can and must rise to the challenge—and please support our team's truth-telling journalism with a donation if you can right now.
