President Trump's legal team suffered a double setback yesterday when a judge denied a bid to block prosecutors from accessing materials seized in a raid of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen - and in the process forced Cohen to disclose that he has also represented Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
He briefly addressed the Cohen story at the opening of Hannity after saying, "the media has been absolutely apoplectic and hyperventilating" over it.
He says he never formally retained Mr Cohen or received a bill from him. He called Cohen a great attorney, but said none of their discussions ever included a third party and were centered on real estate. "Isn't that interesting, that he would need advice from Michael Cohen".
Case closed, right?! Not so fast.
While his off-air relationships might be just a logical extension of Hannity's on-air cheerleading for Trump, it still came as a surprise, immediately raising questions about both Hannity and Fox. Authorities were reportedly looking for information about payments made to two women who have claimed to have had affairs with Trump, as well as communications Cohen had with the president's former campaign. Experts say Cohen and his longtime client President Donald Trump could be in legal jeopardy.

"I understand he doesn't want his name out there", Judge Kimba Wood said.
He said the two men chatted occasionally, and his questions "focused nearly exclusively" on real estate.
Cohen's attorneys said his work for all three of his clients was "more direct legal advice or dispute resolution - more traditional legal tasks". "But I think it would have been much, much better had you disclosed that relationship". But, the President of the United States was already a client!
After his identity was revealed, Hannity said on his syndicated radio show, and again later on his Fox News programme, that he had "occasional, brief discussions" with Cohen in which he sought out Cohen's "input and perspective".
Hannity: "I have the right to privacy". There's a part of me that really wants to build this up into something massive and make the media go nuts. Would you consider it a problem if, at some point in the near future, it comes out that I am childhood friends with the guy who founded Potbelly?
As you'd expect, this weird turn of events did not go unnoticed by Stephen Colbert, and a sneak peek at Monday's "Late Show" monologue reveals him unable to hide his excitement.
Amid all his talk on the air about the unfairness of the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids, Hannity never told his audience about his relationship with Cohen. That doesn't suggest someone who is awash in cash.
But if that's true, why did Cohen's lawyer identify Hannity as a client in federal court? And he was not about to let the news about his Cohen connection change that.
