The segment was about former FBI Director James Comey, but Alan Dershowitz couldn't pass up a chance on Monday night to tell Fox News host Sean Hannity right to his face that he messed up by not telling viewers about the nature of his relationship with President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.

"First of all, Sean, I want to say that I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show," Dershowitz said. "You could have said that you had asked him for advice or whatever, but I think it would have been much, much better had you disclosed that relationship." Hannity interrupted to say he was going to "deal with it later in the show," but Dershowitz wasn't done. "You were in a tough position because A, you had to talk about Cohen and B, you didn't want the fact that you had spoken to him to be revealed and you had the right, by the way, to not have your identity be revealed," he continued.
