Fox News released a statement today in response to Monday’s revelation in court that Fox host Sean Hannity has ties to Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. The brief statement expresses the network’s support for Hannity.
“While Fox News was unaware of Sean Hannity’s informal relationship with Michael Cohen and was surprised by the announcement in court yesterday, we have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support,” the statement says.
Hannity also commented following the revelation, releasing a series of tweets on the subject Monday afternoon. You can see some of his posts below.
Hannity started the posts by writing: “Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective.”
Hannity indicated that he discussed real estate matters with Cohen.
