Fox News' Judicial Analyst Absolutely Shreds Hannity's Cohen Claim

The bad news is that Trump speaks with Hannity constantly, like several times a week.

Sean Hannity is not likely to face much blowback from Fox News over his failure to disclose his relationship with President Trump's personal lawyer, said Michael Calderone, Politico's senior media reporter.

"While Fox News was unaware of Sean Hannity's informal relationship with Michael Cohen and was surprised by the announcement in court yesterday, we have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support", a spokeswoman for Fox News said.

Hannity said the conversations "never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions".

Despite the Fox host's prior, passionate, on-air defenses of Cohen's actions as the legal defender of Donald Trump, Hannity at first attempted a quick exit, stage right, from any notion that he had a real attorney-client relationship with Cohen, tweeting, "I never retained him, received an invoice or paid legal fees". "Sean is one of them", he added, and said that Blackstone chief executive Stephen Schwarzman, veteran investor Carl Icahn and first lady Melania Trump "may be the only others on that list".

A Fox News spokeswoman did not respond to an inquiry on this point. Fox News is helping to run this country.

Ola to deploy a million electric vehicles in India by 2021
Launched in 2011, with a cheeky $1. 1 billion from major investors under its belt, Ola now claims to have 125 million users. As a part of the Maharashtra deal, e-cabs, e-buses, e-rickshaws, and e-autos will all be brought on one platform.

"I understand he doesn't want his name out there, but that's not enough under the law", she said. Judge Kimba Wood lobbed at Cohen's attorneys.

For what it's worth, Stephanopoulos offered an apology over his failure to disclose the donation and ABC - like Fox did with Hannity - announced that it would stand behind him.

Cohen was forced to reveal that Hannity is one of his only clients after the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided his office, home and hotel room last week. Cohen was never part of the Trump administration or the Trump campaign.

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.

"And to be absolutely clear: They never involved any matter, any-sorry to disappoint so many-matter between me or third parties, or third groups, at all". One of the reasons we are so incapable as a nation today of thinking straight about major issues is the misinformation some cable TV hosts peddle every night.
