Over the last year, the left has been grasping at straws to prove somehow that President Trump won the 2016 election with the assistance of Russian meddling. As the case against the Russian collusion narrative continues to fall apart like a cheap suit, those on the left are now jumping on the Stephanie Clifford (AKA Stormy Daniels) fiasco to prove that Trump somehow obstructed justice. Within the last week, that investigation went into hyper-drive as the FBI raided Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen law offices in an attempt to prove impropriety on him and Trump’s part.
The theatrics of this bogus investigation into Cohen then took another unexpected turn when he was dragged in federal court in Manhattan on Monday, and pressed to name all his clients. Cohen revealed ten of his clients but failed to disclose the identity of the third client which of course, drew the ire of the U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood who ordered Cohen to release the name.
Finally, after being backed into a corner, Cohen announced that the unidentified client was Fox News host, Sean Hannity. Immediately after this announcement, the internet burst into hysterics as liberals began to scream that this revelation proved concrete evidence of conflict of interest with Hannity and President Trump.
Sean Hannity was using @FoxNews to attack the FBI’s raid on his personal attorney Michael Cohen. There are conflicts of interest here I’ve never even seen before. This is bad. #FireHannity https://t.co/BcotEwYkpz

However, Trump is not about to take this lying down and is already planning his revenge against those that are trying to tarnish his name.
Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past. I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken. All lawyers are deflated and concerned!

The left in their attempt to create more division and discourse in the country will do what they can to pit those on the same side against each other. Since President Trump has taken office, that tactic has been seen on multiple occasions, as conservatives have been sparring over issues such as immigration and the latest Syrian scuffle. So, when FBI agents raided Michael Cohen’s office last week, and a federal judge was forced to reveal that Sean Hannity was one of his clients the reality of the left’s devious plan was uncovered.
In an article published by the left-leaning site, Truth Examiner yesterday showed how they would use this information to discredit Sean Hannity, who has been a staunch Trump supporter since taking office.
“Fox News host Sean Hannity was revealed as the previously unnamed client of Michael Cohen on Monday.
Cohen, the personal attorney for Donald Trump, was in federal court in Manhattan on Monday. After the judge ordered him to name his client, Cohen acknowledged Hannity as a client, according to reporters who were in the room.
In a court filing Monday, Cohen’s attorneys revealed that he had 10 clients from 2017 to 2018, including Trump, Elliott Broidy, the former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee and an unidentified client.
“The third legal client directed Mr. Cohen to not to reveal the identity publicly,” Cohen’s lawyers wrote.
U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood ordered the name of the third client released.
Cohen’s legal team had sought to keep Hannity’s identity anonymous in the hearing because of his public prominence, but U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood ordered Cohen to reveal the identity of his third client.
“We have been friends a long time,” Hannity told the Wall Street Journal’s Rebecca Ballhaus. I have sought legal advice from Michael.”
The internet is losing it at the news:

There were audible gasps and one shout of “holy shit” when Hannity’s name was revealed on the courtroom. I ran outside. I’ve emailed Hannity and he has yet to respond.

Sean Hannity flies around on private jets but he can’t afford a better lawyer than Michael Cohen? 🤔

Soon after this “great” reveal many political pundits have come forward to rebuke Sean Hannity for keeping his relationship with Cohen under wraps, but in the famous words of Hillary Clinton, what difference does it make?
According to Sean Hannity, he spoke with Micheal Cohen on a matter that was minimal and did not think it warranted disclosure. However, Yale University Professor Alan Dershowitz claimed otherwise stating that Hannity should have stated his involvement with the embattled attorney instead of keeping it secret.
According to The Daily Wire:
“I do want to say, I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show,” Dershowitz said. “You could have said just you had asked him for advice or whatever. But I think it would have been much much better if you had disclosed that relationship.”
Hannity then said that if Dershowitz “understood the nature” of his relationship with Cohen, he would see “it was minimal.”
But Dershowitz pressed on. “You should have said that and that would have been fair to say, that it was minimal. You were in a tough position because you had to talk about Cohen and you didn’t want the fact that you had spoken to him revealed, and you have the right, by the way, not to reveal that.”
“I have the right to privacy, I do,” Hannity agreed. “It was such a minor relationship; it was to do with real estate, nothing political.”
It is evident that the left is doing whatever they can at this point to prove that Hannity is somehow corrupt which could help their weak case against Trump. If the left can pit these two strong conservative leaders against each other, they could very well start a war within the party that will harm Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections. Now, more then ever conservatives need to stick together and not fall for these liberal tactics or their devious plan of division will topple country for good.
