Hannity himself responded to the news on his show Monday night, saying, “I never paid Michael Cohen for legal fees. I did have occasional brief conversations with Michael Cohen, he’s a great attorney, about legal questions I had, where I was looking for input and perspective.”
“My discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions. And to be absolutely clear, they never involved any matter, any — sorry to disappoint so many — matter between me, a third party, a third group at all.” (RELATED: Hannity Tells His Side Of The Cohen Story)
