Following the shocking revelation on Monday that Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen’s mysterious third client was Sean Hannity, a new report revealed that the Fox News host also hired Jay Sekulow – Trump’s lawyer for the ongoing Russia probe.
According to The Atlantic, “On May 25, 2017, KFAQ, a radio station based in Tulsa, Oklahoma, received a cease-and-desist letter signed by two lawyers for Hannity.”
Those two lawyers were Sekulow and Victoria Toensing.
“Toensing’s signature sits above her name and that of her husband Joseph E. diGenova, the members of diGenova and Toensing LLP, who are identified as “Counsel for Sean Hannity,” according to a copy of the letter obtained by The Atlantic.”
According to The Atlantic, the letter was sent to KFAQ after conservative activist Debbie Schlussel accused Hannity of acting in a “creepy manner” and invited her to his hotel room.
“I’ve just learned in the press that anybody who is Sean Hannity’s lawyer is going to be blasted so I think this phone call is over,” Toensing told the Atlantic. “I’m wondering what attorney-client privilege means to anybody. I don’t say who my clients are, sometimes I do, and many times, most of the time, I do not.”
Hannity was also reached by The Atlantic. He simply responded by saying, “I don’t have time for these silly questions,” appearing to avoid confrontation.
