Jimmy Kimmel Rubs Salt in Sean Hannity’s Michael Cohen Wound
The late-night host got the last laugh in his war of words with the scandal-plagued Fox News pundit.

“Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer, was in court today desperately trying to keep his small client list private,” said Kimmel. “Cohen has three known clients: One of them is Donald Trump, for whom he paid Stormy Daniels. Client No. 2 is Elliott Broidy… Michael negotiated a $1.6 million payment to a Playboy model he had an affair with… and impregnated, by the way, and she had an abortion, so he’s a good dude. And this morning, Michael Cohen was forced to reveal the name of a mystery third client. He tried everything to keep it secret, but the judge ordered him to reveal the name of Client No. 3. And shockingly, that client turned out to be my pal Sean Hannity of Fox News.”

A gleeful Kimmel added: “Isn’t that interesting? That he would need advice from Michael Cohen?”

Hannity, as is his wont, has been going nuts on Twitter over the reveal, so Kimmel read out loud Hannity’s sorta-denial: “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.”

“That sounds normal. He has a lawyer he doesn’t pay,” offered Kimmel. “Hannity was tweeting furiously this afternoon—to distance himself, as you might imagine, from a lawyer whose only job seems to be paying women out.”

Kimmel then pointed to another of Hannity’s tweets that read, “I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third party.”

“What kind of legal advice doesn’t involve a third party, unless… maybe Sean Hannity was thinking of suing himself?” cracked Kimmel. “Besides the implications that are raised, Sean Hannity’s been the chief propaganda guy for Trump’s legal team, yet he never disclosed that he’s also represented by a member of that legal team. If this is the biggest witch-hunt in history, as they say it is, we’re running out of spots on the broomstick. It’s getting very full. We may have to add an extension to this thing.”

3. Hannity only Said "I" Never.....

He almost certainly controls a LLC where he conducts his financial affairs. He said nothing about his business so he could well use his LLC to hide his nefarious enterprises. Follow the money, always.
