Sean Hannity responds to reports of HUD purchases, 'shell' companies

Hannity also never disclosed that he was also a client of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

The report by JON SWAINE alleges that HANNITY holds the properties in over 20 shell companies, all named with a variant of a name based on the initials of HANNITY's children.

Hannity, 56, acquired property with taxpayer support, a fact he did not reveal when praising Ben Carson, the HHU secretary, on his television show past year.

Thousands of pages of public records reviewed by The Guardian helped show Hannity's real estate investment strategy. Hannity was found to be owner of numerous shell companies listed in the report, a fact his attorney did not dispute in a statement to the newspaper.

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for adult film actress Stormy Daniels who is now suing President Donald Trump and his lawyer Michael Cohen, said Sunday that Hannity's work with Cohen was likely "far more extensive" than the conservative media personality has let on.

The records link Hannity to a group of shell companies that spent at least $90m on more than 870 homes in seven states over the past decade.

Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles agree to restructured contract
Foles guided the Eagles to a 5-1 record, including the playoffs, in place of injured starter Carson Wentz. Foles originally signed a two-year contract worth $11 million before last season.


Sean Hannity's net worth includes almost $100 million worth of real estate that he helped buy, sell, or manage with the help of Trump attorney Micheal Cohen, whose office was recently raided by the FBI, The Guardian is reporting. "Mr. Hannity is no different".

Hannity also reportedly purchased discounted properties that had been involved in bank foreclosures, which on television and Twitter he blamed former President Barack Obama's policies for making increasingly common.

Perhaps that's why Fox News is now acting as Hannity's PR agent. They argued that the third client should remain anonymous and said the client did not allow them to disclose that they had used Cohen's services. Daniels is suing to void a nondisclosure agreement which refers to a confidentiality agreement brokered by Michael Cohen that prohibits her from speaking publicly about her alleged affair with Trump.

On Hannity's Fox News show last Monday, Alan Dershowitz, a Harvard law professor, told Hannity he should have come clean about getting advice from Cohen.

"I've said many times on my radio show: I hate the stock market, I prefer real estate".

He insisted that Cohen only briefly consulted on real estate matters.
