Jim Carrey sets sights on Sean Hannity's scandal in latest drawing

President Donald Trump attorney Michael Cohen and adult film actress Stormy Daniels. Cohen has been ordered to appear in federal court in New York Monday

Fox News personality Sean Hannity, an outspoken critic of the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids on presidential lawyer Michael Cohen, denied on Monday that the lawyer has represented him.

In a new filing on Monday, Mr. Cohen's lawyers claimed that agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized more than a dozen electronic devices during the raids, some of which, they added, contained information that had nothing to do with the investigation.

"Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past", Trump tweeted after the raid on Cohen's office. "Bald-faced lying to his viewers to not disclose that he's a third client of Michael Cohen".

Trump now finds himself in similar waters as Clinton was, and one person who could very well know the president's secrets is Cohen.

The public rebuke took Hannity by surprise, who attempted to short-circuit Dershowitz with a promise to address the matter later in his show.

Cohen's previous work included arranging a $130,000 payment to prevent porn star Stormy Daniels from talking publicly about her alleged affair with Trump.

Wood ordered Cohen's lawyers to disclose the name of his third legal client, Fox News presenter Sean Hannity.

"I have a right to privacy", Hannity said in response.

Hannity denied any involvement with Cohen, beyond "occasionally" asking for his input in legal discussions.

It was revealed that Hannity was the client. Hannity, it turns out, was the third and final client of Cohen's over the past 16 months or so, a fact that Cohen's legal team had done everything in its power to keep quiet. "You could have said just that you asked him for advice or whatever, but I think it would have been much, much better had you disclosed that".

Noah also joked about on his about how suspicious it looks that Hannity is connected to Cohen.

U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said in hearings Friday and again Monday that if Cohen wanted the court to declare that the some of his files were protected because of attorney confidentiality rules, he would have to divulge the names of the clients hes worked with since 2016 election. "They never involved any matter between me or a third party at all". That could potentially give prosecutors a window into Trump's past business dealings and the financial affairs of his family, since Cohen has always been a trusted fixer and emissary for the real estate billionaire turned politician.

So far, revelations over Trump's colorful past - like the "Access Hollywood" tape, on which he boasted about groping women, or controversial comments unearthed from Howard Stern's radio show - have not significantly damaged him.

It's worth noting that Daily News rival the New York Post, a corporate cousin of Fox News in Rupert Murdoch's sprawling media empire, did not call attention to the Hannity scandal on its front page this morning. "By the way, I'm thinking of hiring Michael Cohen as my lawyer".
