Fox News Stands Behind Hannity: ‘Surprised’ By Cohen Revelation But He Has ‘Our Full Support’

A day after the bombshell revelation that Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s secret third client was pro-Trump Fox News host Sean Hannity, Fox News has released a statement on the situation. And it would appear the network is fully standing behind its star.

“While FOX News was unaware of Sean Hannity’s informal relationship with Michael Cohen and was surprised by the announcement in court yesterday, we have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support,” Fox News said in the statement.

Hannity has declared that Cohen has never represented him in any legal matter and he was not provided any invoices, stating that he only sought out Cohen’s advice on some legal issues and assumed that was covered by attorney-client privilege.
