Fox News host Sean Hannity was revealed as Michael Cohen’s third client after a United States judge ordered his name released on Monday. 

Mr. Hannity was quick to deny that he ever retained the personal attorney of U.S. President Donald Trump.

“Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees,” Mr. Hannity said in a statement.

“I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective. I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party.”

Mr. Cohen is the personal lawyer for Trump, and had previusly argued that the revelation of his third client would be embarrassing.

Cohen’s known two clients over the past year are President Donald Trump and GOP financier Elliot Broidy.

Mr. Broidy resigned after it was revealed Cohen allegedly paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate in hush money for the top Republican fundraiser and friend of the U.S. president.

It is not known yet what Cohen did for Hannity beyond what the Fox News host said in comments to reporters.
