Michael Cohen's Third Client Is Sean Hannity

So, today it was revealed that Donald Trump's attorney Michael Cohen's mysterious third client is Sean Hannity.

Cohen's own attorneys had acknowledged that he represented Trump and Elliott Broidy, but they were insistent on not revealing his third client — until a judge compelled them to disclose that it was Hannity, who has been using his platform at Fox News to rail against the FBI raid on Cohen's offices and hotel room, without disclosing his conflict of interest.

Naturally, the question is: What sort of legal work was Cohen — known as a fixer, who arranged hush-payments with women on behalf of both Trump and Broidy — doing for Hannity?

One obvious possibility is that it was related to sexual impropriety and/or harassment, given that sexual harassment is endemic at Fox News — although Hannity claims he never used Cohen's legal services for "any case that involved me and a third party."

But I suspect it's rather more complex than he would have us believe.

I don't know that for certain. But I am certain that this —

— is 100% bullshit.
