In an interview with CNN host Wolf Blitzer, Gerald Connolly, a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives, had zero remorse for Sean Hannity.
“Sean Hannity has been among the lowest of the low, wrestling in the mud of Birther conspiracy, Seth Rich conspiracies about the young man who was murdered here in Washington, that maybe that was a different kind of murder,” Connolly said. “All kinds of conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton, and distributing false and fake news left and right. Now what we learn is he’s defending the president’s lawyer on television, he has a conflict of interest and ethical conflict of interest.”
It was revealed on Monday that Michael Cohen represents Fox News personality Sean Hannity. In defense, Hannity tweeted that he was never an official client of Cohen.
Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective.

Despite his response, Connolly says that Fox has no choice but to fire Hannity immediately.
“I think they ought to fire Sean Hannity. I think he is so into this, like a pig in the mud, he can’t get out of it and I think he deserves to be fired,” he said. “His word could never again be trusted given the fact that he consciously did not reveal this relationship.”
