It smells like a cover-up for Hannity by Cohen. What did Cohen the fixer fix for Hannity?

Can you say conflict of interest? Hannity the hypocrite is going down

Hannity is busted and he broke the disclosure laws. I’m mailing this letter to the FCC and SDNY:
Federal Communications Commission
Enforcement Bureau
Investigations & Hearings Division
445 12th Street, SW
Washington, DC 20554

Re: Sean Hannity’s violations of Payola and Sponsorship Indentification – SPONSID

Dear Sir or Madam:
I believe Sean Hannity violated Section 317 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, 47 U.S.C. § 317. That law requires broadcasters to disclose to their listeners or viewers if matter has been aired in exchange for money, services or other valuable consideration. The law says that an announcement must be aired when the subject matter is broadcast. The supporting rule is 47 C.F.R. § 73.1212.
After the raid of New York attorney Michael Cohen on April 9, 2018, by the U.S. Attorneys and the FBI in Southern District of New York, Mr. Sean Hannity of Fox News condemned the raid of Michael Cohen without disclosing that he was one of three clients of Mr. Cohen. Mr. Hannity only disclosed that he was a client after a judge ordered his name be spoken in public court on April 16, 2018.
Fox News, Sean Hannity, and Mr. Hannity’s TV and radio programs should be investigated for fines, civil, and criminal sanctions regarding this matter.
Dr. Linus Wilson

$10 bucks, I guess you get what you pay for...

I want attorney client privilege, but he is not my attorney, because I but I never paid him any fees, except when I paid him 10 bucks. But I never hired him, except when I hired him for real estate.

Do I hear Sarah Huckabee Sanders getting ready to say "Trump hardly knew Mr. Hannity"

If your attorney will take a ten dollar bill for legal services, your attorney isn't actually an attorney but a crackhead.

Goebbels, I mean Hannity is dumb as a box of rocks.

Hannity! It couldn’t have happened to a better sleaze ball!

Cohen seems like a bad lawyer. Has almost no clients and doesn't charge money. If he really likes you he pays your hush money.

Author — ttrev007


Hannity can clarify his position really easily... "I approve the release of any and all of Cohen's documents and recordings regarding my dealings with him."

Author — Are we not entertained?


"Mostly " over real estate. That could be 51% real estate and 49% other. I wonder what the other was about.

The man has three clients. One for sure gave money to quiet a women about an affair, another more than likely (it happened, let's face it) gave money to a woman to keep her quiet and another is Sean Hannity. I bet we can figure out what he needed.

Projection is all Trump and his cronies are capable of, besides corruption, of course.

Mueller isn't involved with the FBI raid of Cohen, he turned over information to the NY district attorney and they decided to do the raid.

Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, Keith Davidson, and all those involved in Russia investigation locked them up

He is changing his story because denying attorney-client privilege makes Cohen look like he lied to the judge. Just think it through!

...yeah, but Obama wore a tan suit and asked for fancy mustard once.

If you wrote this into a soap opera, it would be laughed off the station for being too “cliche” for a soap opera!
