Sean Hannity linked to property empire aided by foreclosures, HUD

Frank Bruni Alex Wagner and Gov. Jay Inslee

In total, the shell companies spent more than $90 million on the homes.

It is not just conservative commentary that talk show host and Fox News anchor Sean Hannity is good at. HANNITY was also highly critical of President OBAMA for the foreclosure rate during his administration but did not disclose that he had invested in foreclosures at a discount while criticizing the President for them. Hannity had Carson on his show a year ago, and failed to disclose the fact that he (Hannity) had benefited financially from the agency that his guest heads. In January 2016, Hannity said there were "millions more Americans suffering under this president" partly because of foreclosures.

The article appeared to be making a case out of the fact that Hannity's loan guarantees from 2014 were not revealed in an interview a year ago with HUD Secretary Ben Carson, despite the original date falling under the Obama administration.

The Guardian's report detailing Hannity's real estate investments followed the revelation last week that he is a client of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime lawyer and fixer. I had no role in, or responsibility for, any HUD involvement in any of these investments. Hannity was outed as a Cohen client after a federal judge forced the disclosure two weeks ago.

Jets win game 5; fans erupt at Whiteout Street Party
The original Winnipeg Jets - now the Arizona Coyotes - only won two playoff series, beating the Calgary Flames in 1985 and 1987. About 15,000 fans gathered along Donald Street and Graham Avenue as part of the Winnipeg Whiteout Street Party.

The properties were purchased through holding companies based in Georgia, and the deals were made in part through the HUD mortgage loans even as Hannity sung the praises of the department without disclosing his financial ties. "Mr Hannity is no different".

The Guardian noted that Carson was not personally involved in any of Hannity's dealings but that the HUD secretary has the power to allow Hannity to convert rental complexes into sellable condos.

"Appearing on CNN's Reliable Sources, the attorney for adult actress Stormy Daniels took one of his daily shots at legal nemesis Michael Cohen, mocking him as a "$10 attorney", and speculating that he has a deeper relationship with Fox News personality Sean Hanni try that has been revealed so far.
