Sean Hannity is the owner of property empire buying foreclosed homes

Sean Hannity is the owner of property empire buying foreclosed homes

Fox News host Sean Hannity is linked to a group of shell companies that have spent $90 million buying hundreds of homes across the U.S through the help of foreclosures and the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Guardian reported Sunday. Four more of the shell companies have owned properties in which public records say Hannity or members of his family have lived. "Mr. Hannity is no different".

Dozens of the properties were bought at a discount in 2013, after banks foreclosed on their previous owners for defaulting on mortgages.

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". Earlier this month, it was revealed that aside from representing Trump, Cohen's additional secret client is Hannity, raising major questions about the details of their relationship. But the television host didn't disclose that fact in June when he had HUD Secretary Ben Carson on air and praised his department's and the Trump administration's privatization proposals.

"The LLC's are REAL companies that spend real investment money on real properties", the Fox News host said in a statement.

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. Properties are located in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Texas and Vermont. "You could have said just that you asked him for advice or whatever, but I think it would have been much, much better had you disclosed that". Trump and Hannity are close, though, and Hannity is a huge proponent of the president, so the connection makes sense. Visit MarketWatch.com for more information on this news.
