Shepard Smith Briefly Addresses Bombshell Hannity Revelation: ‘The Elephant in the Room…’


At the end of the first segment, and then the beginning of the second segment, of his show on Monday, Fox News anchor Shepard Smith very briefly addressed what he termed “the elephant in the room — the bombshell revelation that Sean Hannity is the mysterious third client of President Donald Trump‘s lawyer Michael Cohen.

“For us, the elephant in the room is that Sean Hannity is said to have been a third client of Michael Cohen,” Smith said.

The anchor then read the brief statement Hannity gave the Wall Street Journal. (“We’ve been friends a long time,” Hannity said. “I sought legal advice from Michael.”)

Smith promised to follow-up.

“A lot of people here know his number,” Smith said. “We’ll get on that.”

Following a brief commercial, Smith returned to say the following:

You may have heard a little while ago from court proceedings there were three people that Michael Cohen did legal work for. The President of the United States, one other and the third. The third is said to be Sean Hannity. He’s on the air on the radio right now. We spoke with his publicist here at Fox News who says that he says they have been friends a long time. He never denied he was his lawyer. That he did some legal work for him along the way. And that’s the extent of that.
