As Twitchy told you, Michael Cohen’s mysterious third client has been revealed as Sean Hannity. Hannity himself has confirmed the reports.
But lost among the frenzy is a pretty important question: Was there a conflict of interest?
So was Hannity a client of Michael Cohen last April when he was a guest? Should the CG have been "Personal Attorney to Me"? pic.twitter.com/GcSWZscQDI

Did FNC know that before Hannity brought Cohen on the air? https://t.co/1uc0RSSa5L

I'm sure this will shock you, but Hannity denounced the Michael Cohen raid without acknowledging the glaring conflict of interest https://t.co/pUtGbeowDV

So Sean Hannity has been using his perch at Fox News to rail against the investigation into someone who he didn't disclose was his own lawyer. https://t.co/gGjz3uPMoz

Hannity also addressed the Cohen raid on Twitter:
Tweet from April 11. No mention that Hannity was Cohen's client. https://t.co/pzWMcnsyhQ

Him being a client of Cohen’s certainly seems like something he should have disclosed to Fox News …
Yes that is a good point. https://t.co/uvpxe40h7T

This is true. There should have been disclosure that Hannity had a financial relationship with Cohen. If I'd been watching, that is something I would have wanted to know. https://t.co/BzVvdiYuII

A more than fair point. It's really not possible to argue that it is ethical for anyone claiming to be a journalist (even one of the opinion variety) to not disclose this kind of relationship with a guest. https://t.co/yB1mtyBWY8

Stay tuned … this is likely to get messier.
