Fox News personality Sean Hannity volunteered that he is a witness in the hush money violation of federal law for which Michael Cohen is going to jail during an exclusive interview with President Donald Trump.
“I was kind of dragged in a little bit into the Michael Cohen issue,” Hannity acknowledged.
“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.”

“I look forward to his testimony,” Cicilline added.
Cicilline is a member of the House Judiciary Committee.
