Reporters at both CNN and NBC News on Monday noted that spectators were shocked when U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood compelled the revelation that the president’s attorney Michael Cohen is also representing Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“It truly is an extraordinary day and it was an extraordinary moment in that courthouse when it was blurted out that Sean Hannity was the third client,” NBC News’ Tom Winter told MSNBC host Katy Tur, not that Cohen representing the Fox News personality in 2017 and possibly 2018 as well.
CNN’s Shimon Prokupecz recounted the audience’s reaction when Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan “stood up in the courtroom and basically said ‘Sean Hannity.'”
“As you can imagine, there was really shock in the courtroom,” the CNN correspondent said. “Several people ran out, including myself, to report the news.”
