Hannity's Attorney-Client Privilege Claim Put Cohen in a Bind

Wochit - April 17, 2018

Michael Cohen said he had only three clients in 2017 and 2018.

President Trump, Elliott Broidy, and someone Cohen did not want to identify.

In court on Monday, Cohen was forced by the judge to reveal the clientโ€™s name, Sean Hannity.

Hannity addressed the news, claiming he had never retained Cohen in the โ€œtraditionalโ€ sense.

Hannity said Cohen never represented him, and that he never paid him any legal fees.

"We definitely had attorney-client privilege because I asked him for that but, you know, he never sent me a bill or an invoice.".
