Boy, is Sean Hannity, aka Client No. 3 going to have to find a car crash to cut to tonight! This is just too sublime. Oh.My.God. To watch Fox News take a gut punch like this kicks off Monday on such a delightful note.  Last week, if you missed it, Sean Hannity had Newt Gingrich on and they sadly opined that the raid on Cohen, clearly part of the Deep State effort to bring Trump down, was similar to what the Gestapo used to do. New York Magazine:

Hannity has been on this conspiratorial trip since President Trump took office, but now we know he had an extra, very personal stake in the latest phase of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. And while Hannity is not known for avoiding conflict of interest, or for ethical journalism in general, his failure to disclose a blatant conflict of interest may be a new nadir even for him.

And that’s before even getting to what, exactly, Cohen was doing for Hannity. Was he arranging secretive payouts to women, as he did with his other two clients, Trump and Elliott Broidy, the now-former Deputy National Finance Chairman of the Republican National Committee? Was it something even shadier?

On his radio show Monday afternoon, Hannity responded to the revelation as you would expect.


“I will decide if I’m going to put out a statement here,” Hannity said, before remarking on seeing coverage of his role unfolding on Fox News. “It’s very strange to have my own television network have my name up on the lower third.”

“Following the raid of Mr. Cohen’s office and residences, there has been a deluge of press,” Cohen’s lawyers Harrison and Stephen Ryan wrote. “It almost goes without saying, unfortunately, that none of Mr. Cohen’s clients want to be associated with the government raid on his home and law office, or want to be affiliated in any way with the proceedings here and the attendant media coverage.”

Want to know how this is going to end?

“He was a low level operative. I think he was the coffee boy.”
