New York – Fox News Channel says its management was unaware until it came out in court that host Sean Hannity shared a lawyer with President Donald Trump, but that Hannity “continues to have our full support.”

Fox said in a statement Tuesday that it had reviewed the matter and spoken to Hannity about the announcement that Michael Cohen had represented him. That was revealed in a court hearing on Monday about the FBI’s seizure of records last week from Cohen’s office as part of the probe of Trump’s Russian contacts.

Hannity had described his personal dealings with Cohen as centered on real estate advice, and that he considered it so minimal that he hadn’t seen it necessary to bring it up to anyone.
