Sigh. This is the behavior of people with the power, privilege, and personality to do good, yet choose to do evil. Willfully ignorant, willfully delusional.

The Trump brain trust: Tweedledum and Tweedledumber.

The problem here is not Hannity being a client or getting legal advice from Cohen. The problem is Hannity has a massive conflict of interest. If he is going to talk about Cohen and Trump and the Mueller investigation day after day on his shows, he has an obligation to inform listeners / viewers that he is a client. Bad ethical mistake that exposes Hannity as a highly partisan hack.

Wait, . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . What?
Why were both Trump and Broidy named David Dennison?
Couldn't one of them have been named Dennis Davidson?
Why were both Daniels and Bechard named Peggy Peterson?
Couldn't one of them have been named Peggy Peters?
(Not to mention Stephanie Clifford.)
What name will we get to use for Sean Hannity?

"Hannity had been fiercely critical of the special counsel, Robert Mueller, and the FBI while describing the raid against Cohen during the April 9 broadcast of Hannity on Fox News." And there it is, and, is it now illegal to seek the advice of an attorney?

Nobody here said it was illegal to seek legal advice, skeptic1. Look up terms like conflict of interest and full disclosure and journalistic ethics, and then apply them to Hannity's behavior. When you understand them, you won't be so sidetracked.

I despise hannity, but what's the big deal here. Pretty obvious what he is, a shrill voice for right wing of the right wing gop. Year after year he comes on and spouts stuff so one sided that even some in fox get disturbed. He is what he is, and this is just par for fox and the right wing in their hypocrisy.

I believe sh is a true believer unlike many on fox who just want a paycheck. He is of the dangerous kind,

septic tank, get in the game. Poor analysis is just as bad as bad facts, but to double down is unforgivable in these discussions.

Cant wait for the "yeah but" brigade to spout out their poison.

Sad that john stewart doesnt do the daily show any more as his fact checkers on fox had it easy to turn up a plethora of their hourly BS and "look their is a car chase/wreck". Their lies of never saying something mean and/or hateful and/or pure misstatement of the in context of the situation was how they rolled. Kinda funny if it wasnt so serious by letting the base help chase their tail in one of dante's circle of hell.

WGT, I remind you that SH is a good catholic, he says. That of itself may get his reward in the world down below instead of the world up there, from a mammal that is here in the middle. Also you forgot to add "with malice a fore thought".

Good questions, WhoDo. There has to be a reason that Cohen used the exact same aliases in hush-money contracts for two separate pairs of people... or is it three? Very peculiar.
*
And I don't for one second believe that Cohen works for nothing or, even more preposterously, that he voluntarily spends HIS money to protect his clients. That just doesn't happen by lawyers. There is a lot more to these stories than has yet been revealed.
*
I also don't believe for one second that Hannity may have handed Cohen a $10 bill for some privileged legal discussion. That's an absurd statement to make, and even more absurd to expect anyone to believe. Again, lots more to be learned on the Hannity side of this story.

I get Hannity's point to some degree. He's a hack. He's part of the Propaganda machine. So having a conflict of interest is not reasonable for him to tell anyone about. People that like some kind of ethical behavior from the people giving them opinion or reporting the news might scream it's improper (and it is) because so many people believe what this imbecile says, but Hannity knows what he is. He knows he's a hack. So in his head, it shouldn't matter. It's not Fox News. It's Fox Entertainment.
