Sean Hannity Faces Conservative Criticism Over Real Estate Deals

However, Hannity's real estate attorney Christopher Reeve said his client's property holdings were "highly confidential" and not relevant for the public.

Hannity, whose salary from Fox News is estimated by Forbes to be $36 million annually, acknowledged in his statement that he received loans from HUD to invest in properties during President Barack Obama's administration.

Fox News host Sean Hannity is speaking out following a report that he purchased discounted and foreclosed properties as investment tools through shell companies, all the while receiving support from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Hannity's mortgages were replaced late last month with $22.9 million in loans that were rewritten with HUD and a new bank.

It is not just conservative commentary that talk show host and Fox News anchor Sean Hannity is good at.


Swaine noted that Hannity's investment strategy was "confirmed by thousands of pages of public records reviewed by the Guardian", but later in the article wrote, "A Hud source said Hannity was identified in non-public filings as the 100% owner of the apartment complexes".

The condo is one of hundreds of properties that shell companies linked to Hannity purchased over the last decade, according to a report in the Guardian. 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.

"I doubt you would find it very surprising that most people prefer to keep their legal and personal financial issues private", Reeve told the newspaper. Republicans push Trump to rescind Gateway funds Facebook investigated over alleged housing discrimination MORE's department recently increased Hannity's original $17.9 million mortgage for purchases in Georgia by an additional $5 million, records obtained by the Guardian show.

Hannity has said that he hates investing in the stock market, and instead buys real estate. "Mr. Hannity is no different".

Journalists, as part of a code of ethics, are expected to recuse themselves from reporting on a subject that involves a personal connection or, at the least, disclose those connections. "The fact is, there are investments that I do not individually select, control, or know the details about; except that obviously I believe in putting my money to work in communities that otherwise struggle to receive such support", he said.
