The Hannity News Was Big Because the Comey News Bombed. Plus, the Shocking Bit.

The media quickly pivoted to Sean Hannity when James Comey decided he didn't think Trump should be impeached.

I have no idea why Michael Cohen listed Sean Hannity as an undisclosed third client and if there really was a substantive attorney-client relationship there, then Hannity should have disclosed it. But Sean says Cohen is someone he has bounced legal advice off of for a while. Sean, last year, called me to thank me for something and got to talking about Trump. He offered to connect me to Cohen at the time. I declined, but I know those two have known each other a long time. They have a long standing relationship that existed well before the Presidential campaign.

I suspect we may hear more about this story. Cohen noted in his legal filings that he represented seven people providing "strategic advice and business consulting" and another three on other issues. One was Trump, who he represented in the Stormy Daniels matter, another is Elliott Broidy who Cohen represented in a deal to spend over a million dollars killing his child with a Playboy playmate. The third is Sean Hannity. The left is, by virtue of Cohen's filings, trying to claim Hannity's issues are more like Trump and Broidy instead of the other seven. It is a subtle form of character assassination they'll gleefully engage in because Sean is a conservative talk radio host with a show on Fox.

By the way, Sean Hannity says his most formal issue with Michael Cohen is real estate matters. That's all.

And that's all we know. We have Hannity's word and we have a lot of people eager to move on from the James Comey story. It was a ratings success on Sunday night for ABC, but then people heard the interview. What we got was a bunch of old news and one bit of new news that is very inconvenient for the left.

James Comey thinks Donald Trump is a blight on the presidency, a stain on everyone around him, immoral, and unfit for office. He thinks Donald Trump treats women like pieces of meat and draws moral equivalence to white supremacists. Okay. So what's new? That was all well litigated in 2016 and Trump won anyway. The Access Hollywood tape was out and big news and Trump still won. All Comey revealed was that he has very conventional, coastal elite views on Donald Trump. That's not new.

What is new is what is shocking. James Comey does not think Donald Trump should be impeached. He thinks he should be voted out of office. Comey said he does not think Trump is mentally unfit or crazy. But this is the thing that really does stand out. Despite what Comey knows about Donald Trump that he is not saying publicly and despite what the former FBI Director knows about the Trump campaign and Russians, he does not think Donald Trump should be impeached.

Despite the bluster and yelling, it appears even James Comey believes there is no there, there in the Russian collusion investigation. So let's talk about Sean Hannity.

It is really "Much ado about nothing".

It would be par for the course for the media, considering what a revolving door exists between the Democrats and the other networks. But I suppose that's okay, because they're not bad people, right?

Should we also take Cohen at his word when he argued to the judge that Sean should not be revealed because it would be "embarrassing" to his client? What's embarrassing about real estate advice?

Would it be ok if Trump paid Shammity? Would that be something he should mention on his "show"?
