He also arranged a $1.6 million payoff to silence a former Playboy model who was impregnated by Trump fundraiser Elliot Broidy.
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday cracked herself up as she was reporting on the Sean Hannity-Michael Cohen bombshell. "So moving on to the rest of what's happening today, there has been a good deal of back-and-forth filings over this issue since last night".
"We have now entered a risky new phase, and there's no turning back", Hannity continued ominously.
What's risky to this country is not a legal investigation of possible Russian interference in the 2016 election, it's media outlets like Fox News and prominent hosts like Hannity working secretly with members of Trump's inner circle like Cohen - and hiding such relationships from the public.
That Cohen's attorneys included Hannity's name on a list of clients presented in court "just shows that Michael was doing his due diligence and being totally thorough about anybody that he might have had attorney-client privilege with", Hannity told listeners.

But they initially declined to reveal the name of the third client.
Cohen was thrust into the spotlight in January after the Wall Street Journal reported that he'd secretly provided $130,000 in hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 USA presidential election to keep her quiet about an affair she allegedly had with Trump.
"If he was a client, then his confidential communications to Mr. Cohen are privileged".
"I might have handed him 10 bucks [and said, ] 'I definitely want your attorney-client privilege on this, ' " Hannity said on the radio. "He was, like, "All my questions to Michael Cohen were exclusively nearly real estate.'".
That's a huge responsibility, which Hannity has repeatedly betrayed in favor of propaganda on behalf of politicians like Palin and Trump and vicious attacks on their opponents. "I don't think [Fox News will] do it, but I think they should fire him", Freedman said.
