Jim Carrey sets sights on Sean Hannity's scandal in latest drawing

Jim Carrey sets sights on Sean Hannity's scandal in latest drawing

In open court on Monday, Michael Cohen's attorney revealed that one of the three clients Cohen has done legal work for - only three?

"We just spoke with his publicist here at Fox News, who says that he says they have been friends a long time, he never denied that he was his lawyer, that he did some legal work for him along the way, and that's the extent of that", Smith said.

Sipping red wine from a recliner at one point, The Late Show host Stephen Colbert unpacked what he dubbed the "Hannity Insanity". Was Fox News aware of the secret that Hannity and his lawyer desperately wanted to keep under wraps? Many people are scratching their heads, wondering why pre-President Trump doesn't enjoy attorney-client privilege with his lawyer.

Robert D. Balin, a lawyer for various media outlets, including The New York Times, CNN and others, interrupted the hearing to argue that embarrassment was not a sufficient cause to withhold a client's name, and Wood agreed. He looks a bit foolish for going nuts over the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's office given the fact Hannity didn't disclose the relationship with Cohen. "I never paid legal fees to Michael", Hannity said.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney is set to appear in federal court to argue over evidence found during a recent FBI raid, and porn star Stormy Daniels' lawyer says she'll be there.

The letter identified two of the clients, Trump and former GOP fundraiser Elliott Broidy, who has acknowledged paying $1.6 million to a Playboy model with whom he had an affair. "You could've said just that you asked him for advice or whatever, but I think it would've been much, much better had you disclosed that relationship".

Besides supporting Trump on his show, Hannity reportedly talks to the president regularly and, last week, Trump even tweeted out a promotion, telling his followers that Hannity was going to have a big show coming up.


The courtroom disclosure about Hannity occurred during the expanding criminal investigation into Cohen by the US attorney's office in Manhattan.

"My discussions with Michael Cohen rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions", he said.

Carrey couldn't help but taunt Sean Hannity after the TV host was named as one of Michael Cohen's secret clients during a hearing in NY yesterday.

"I understand he doesn't want his name out there, but that's not enough under the law", Wood said. Would you see a conflict there?

"Hannity's producers are working to contact him", Smith said. After Kimmel joked on his show about first lady Melania Trump's accent, Hannity called Kimmel a "despicable disgrace". "They leave me alone". A threat to Hannity is a threat to Fox: His show is the most-watched program on the network and he runs neck-and-neck with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow as the most popular on-air cable news personality. "I might have handed him 10 bucks [and said, ] 'I definitely want your attorney-client privilege on this, '" the host boasted. And to be absolutely clear, they never involved any matter, any - sorry to disappoint so many - matter between me, a third party, a third group, at all.

This implies that he did not disclose his Cohen connection to management, possibly running afoul of Fox policy.

After last night's show, it seemed there was another contender for that title.
