Sean Hannity is a “pig in the mud” and “deserves to be fired” from Fox News over his failure to disclose that he was the mystery third client of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, a Democratic congressman said

Representative Gerry Connolly of Virginia appeared on CNN’s The Situation Room Monday after a federal judge in Manhattan ordered Cohen’s lawyer, Todd Harrison, to disclose the name of Cohen's up-to-that point mystery third client, which he had sought to keep private. The matter, which arose out of an FBI raid of Cohen’s office, home and hotel room for documents relating to payments around Trump’s alleged affairs, “deserves a lot of attention,” Connolly, the vice ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said.

“Now what we learn is, as he’s defending the president’s lawyer on television, he has a conflict of interest an ethical conflict of interest—he is one of those clients,” Connolly said. “He never revealed that and I think that’s a big stain certainly on Mr. Hannity but also on Fox News.”

“So what do you think Fox News should do?” CNN host Wolf Blitzer asked.

“I think they ought to fire Sean Hannity. I think he is so into this like a pig in the mud—he can’t get out of it,” Connolly responded. “And I think he deserves to be fired. His word can never again get trusted given the fact that he consciously did not reveal this relationship.”

“You know, Sean Hannity has been among the lowest of the low, wrestling in the mud of birther conspiracies, Seth Rich conspiracies about the young man who was tragically murdered here in Washington, that maybe that was a different kind of murder,” Connolly said. “All kinds of conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton, distributing false and fake news left and right.”

Hannity on Monday claimed that he “occasionally had brief discussions with [Cohen] about legal questions” but that Cohen “never represented me in any matter.”

Let reverse roles by having a Democratic President who picked Liberal cabinet members. Secondly, utilizing that narrative, what would be the media reporting obligations in term of accuracy and truthfulness? News flash!!!!!, we've been there and done that (Obama's 8 years), the crooked and hypocritical Republicans are giving free passes to fellow Republicans and Conservative reporting, who are expected to at least remain honest in regard to accuracy & fairness, all which disappeared once Trump announced his candidacy. Now we get to see a denigration of truth while lies become the new mainstream.

Tracking the Russia investigations

By Marshall Cohen, Tal Yellin, Liz Stark

Special counsel Robert Mueller and multiple committees on Capitol Hill are investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and whether anyone from President Donald Trump’s campaign was involved. Investigators have interviewed witnesses, secured search warrants, issued subpoenas, and requested documents from dozens of people and entities. The investigations are supposed to be conducted in secret, so many details are not publicly available. This interactive tracks the publicly known developments of the sprawling investigations into Trump and Russia – and probably represents a slice of what has actually taken place.
