Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, a former judge, isn't buying it.
Fox News said in a statement that while the network "was unaware of Sean Hannity's informal relationship with Michael Cohen and was surprised by the announcement in court yesterday, we have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support".
That "third party" reference came in the wake of social-media speculation that since Cohen was representing his other two clients, Trump and Republican National Committee deputy finance chair Elliott Broidy, in negotiations involving women with whom they allegedly had relationships, maybe he was doing the same for Hannity.
IDF Confirms Israel Attacked ' Live Iranians' in Syria
Trump has strongly opposed the Iran nuclear deal, which was clinched under his predecessor Barack Obama. It was the biggest worldwide attack on Assad's regime since the start of Syria's seven-year war.
"So anything that is there regarding Sean Hannity can be revealed?"
Officially, Fox News is standing behind Hannity. A new Washington Post report makes it clear just how close that relationship is.
"Michael never represented me in any matter", Hannity said. Hannity has regularly defended Cohen amid his mounting legal conflicts without disclosing their relationship.
U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood appeared to reject the idea, saying that a "taint team" created by prosecutors to set aside privileged documents is a "viable option", while a court-appointed outside lawyer known as a "special master" may also play a role in determining which records can and cannot be viewed by prosecutors.

HANNITY: And it's a big step for him.
On May 25 of 2017, the station received the letter from Toensing and Sekulow, calling Schlussel's statements about Hannity "false and defamatory" and demanding that the station never air them again, according to The Atlantic. "He did some legal work for me'". Cohen's lawyer Todd Harrison responded by insisting, "We're good people". "I had brief discussions with him about legal questions where I wanted his input and perspective". Shame on him and double shame on Fox News.
"I don't think they'll do it, but I think they should fire him", Freedman said.
If the Robert Mueller investigation into Donald Trump and associates were a TV show, critics would pan it for being too far-fetched.
