Michael Cohen's client was sean hannity

As adult film actress Stormy Daniels looked on, a federal judge ordered U.S. President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen to cough up the name of client he had hoped to keep secret at a Monday court hearing: Sean Hannity.

Hannity is a conservative television host known for passionately advocating for Trump on his Fox News show, and often receiving public praise from Trump in return. Calls to a Fox News spokesperson by Reuters were not immediately returned.


James Comey: Trump morally 'unfit' to be U.S. president

Comey: Trump morally unfit for office Former FBI Director James Comey blasted President Donald Trump in a televised interview Sunday night, in which he called the commander in-chief "unfit" for the White House.

Comey told ABC News, in a highly anticipated interview, while he doesn't believe everything he hears about Trump, he does believe he should not be president of the United States.

"I don't buy this stuff about him being mentally incompetent or early stages of dementia. He strikes me as a person of above average intelligence who's tracking conversations and knows what's going on," Comey said. "I don't think he's medically unfit to be president. I think he's morally unfit to be president."


Comey's book swipes at Trump – but Mueller's inquiry is the real threat

Comey book swipes at Trump

The first big interview with the fired FBI director James Comey is blazing toward a broadcast on Sunday night, but for the Donald Trump presidency, multiple meteors have already hit.

In Comey’s book, A Higher Loyalty, obtained by the Guardian on Thursday from a bookseller in New York before publication, the former official casts Trump as both “unethical” and “untethered to truth” and compares his presidency to a “forest fire”.

Likening Trump to a mafia boss, Comey describes a meeting in the Oval Office which gave him flashbacks to his career as a young prosecutor.

Michale Cohen did go to PragueThe U.S. special counsel in the Russia probe has evidence that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen traveled to Prague in 2016, refuting Cohen’s claim that he never visited the Czech capital and bolstering an intelligence dossier that first described the trip, McClatchy reported on Friday.

Investigators for Special Counsel Robert Mueller have evidence Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany in late summer 2016, McClatchy reported, citing two unnamed sources. The news agency said it was unclear whether Mueller’s investigators have evidence that Cohen met with a prominent Russian as the dossier claimed.

It’s the first peek at the investigation of Cohen after a raid on his offices and home Monday by FBI agents.

A greater proportion of those surveyed in a poll out Friday find former FBI Director James Comey more believable than President Donald Trump, a finding that arrives as the president openly blasted Comey as an "untruthful slime ball," seemingly in response to claims in his forthcoming memoir.

Results from The Washington Post/ABC News poll showed respondents find Comey more believable than Trump by a 3-to-2 margin, 48 percent to 32 percent. Seven percent said neither was more believable, 2 percent said both were equally believable, and 11 percent said they had no opinion on the matter.
