When discussing hush money payments made to adult-film star Stormy Daniels, Hannity claimed that Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen had made them without consulting Trump.

“I can tell you personally, he said to me at least a dozen times that he made the decision on the payments and he didn’t tell you,” Hannity said.

Trump agreed with Hannity that Cohen had made that decision independently. 

During congressional testimony Wednesday, Cohen said that Trump was aware of the payment to Daniels, who alleges she had an affair with the president.

Trump has denied the affair and that any payments made violated campaign finance laws.
