While ostensibly interviewing President Donald Trump, Fox News personality Sean Hannity vouched for the president on the hush money payments made to cover up extramarital affairs during the 2016 presidential election.

Federal prosecutors convicted Cohen for a felony violation of campaign finance laws "at the direction" of Trump.

Cohen brought evidence of the conspiracy with him when he testified.

Hannity, however, said that wasn't true.

"I was kind of dragged in a little bit into the Michael Cohen issue," Hannity admitted.

Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, listed Hannity as Cohen's mysterious third client that had attempted to be hidden from the court.

"I interviewed him multiple times on radio and TV. He was never my attorney," Hannity claimed.

"I can tell you personally, he said to me at least a dozen times that he made the decision on the payments and he didn't tell you," Hannity argued. "He told me, personally."

"Yeah, he did, he made the decision," Trump claimed.
