Fox News host Sean Hannity reportedly employed Michael Cohen to help him build a real estate empire that is full of conflicts of interest.
The other shoe has dropped on Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Days after a federal judge forced President Trump’s personal lawyer to reveal that Hannity is a client, a new report says Hannity employed the attorney to help him build a real estate empire that is rife with conflicts of interest.
Hannity, 56, never divulged his relationship with Trump fixer Michael Cohen, 51, even after the conservative commentator railed against the FBI for raiding Cohen’s home and office as an offshoot of a Trump probe.
But according to The Guardian, Cohen helped Hannity make secret deals on foreclosed properties, despite Hannity’s strong criticism of former President Barack Obama over the nation’s foreclosure rate.
Records link Hannity to shell companies that spent at least $90 million on more than 870 homes in seven states over the past decade, The Guardian said. It also said Hannity got support from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, while publicly praising the department’s head, Ben Carson.
