Records show that Hannity used multiple LLCs to build a real estate portfolio with at least 877 residential units that he bought for a total of almost $89 million, the Guardian reported.
Speaking with CNN host Brian Stelter, Michael Avenatti said of President Donald Trump's personal attorney, "I think that Sean Hannity has described the relationship as one centering on real estate that he paid Michael Cohen $10".
"I don't know that there's anything nefarious that went on between Mr. Hannity and Mr. Cohen, or that there was any NDA-type involvement or anything of that nature".
Cohen arranged a $130,000 payment to the porn star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 election to ensure her silence about an alleged affair she says she had with Trump in 2006. HANNITY did not disclose his relationship with HUD when he praised HUD Secretary Dr.
