According to The Washington Post, Hannity was "one of just three legal clients Cohen represented after leaving his post as a counsel for Trump's private company in early 2017."
The other two clients were previously identified as Trump and Elliott Broidy, former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee.
Hannity said Monday that he spoke with Cohen about legal matters but that he never retained the attorney.
“I’ve known Michael for a long, long time,” said "The Sean Hannity Show” host.
“Michael never represented me in any matter. I never retained him in the traditional sense, as retaining a lawyer. I never received an invoice from Michael.”
Here are some things to know about Hannity:
- Hannity was born Dec. 30, 1961, in New York City.
