Sean Hannity Hired Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen To Stop Boycott Of Hannity Show: Report

Fox News host Sean Hannity reportedly hired President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen in an effort to stop a boycott of Hannity’s Fox News show in 2017.

Vanity Fair journalist Gabriel Sherman told on MSNBC that Hannity hired Cohen “to help defend him against left-wing groups that were calling for boycotts,” an apparent reference to a boycott pushed by the fact-checking organization Media Matters.

Sherman said Hannity may have hired “other lawyers and/or private investigators” as part of the effort.

Hannity claimed on Twitter that Cohen never represented him and that he (Hannity) never paid him any legal fees:
