    For mortgage approvals you typically have to prove some sort of revenue and the definition of shell corporations is that it is a publicly held corporation with little to no assets than a bank account. So how is he being approved for these mortgages?

    This is all speculative but basically it hinges upon whether or not the corporation is in fact a shell corp.
    Still not seeing illegal activity. He doesn't own or run these so called 'shell companies', he is linked to them indirectly. From your own quote:

    The shell companies are registered to the offices of Henssler Financial, a wealth management firm. Hannity has had one of the firm’s principals, Bill Lako, appear on his radio show.

    Hannity did disclose that he was Henssler’s client and joked that the company took him on as a “charity case.”

    The Guardian noted that Carson was not personally involved in any of Hannity’s dealings but does have the power to allow Hannity to convert rental complexes into sellable condos.
    I don't know why the Guardian calls it a shell company, other than to make it sound sinister. Just a lot of innuendo and half truths, which is kind of symbolic of the media's behaviour ever since Trump got elected.

    I imagine when both Clinton’s are dead and Chelsea has since gone to a private place avoiding the spotlight. People will still try to justify really shady business by saying the Clintons did worse. Even though they are both dead. They are quite literally beating a dead corpse.

    On topic, everyone knows that rich white men that are convicted of financial crimes essentially get a paid vacation for a few years.

    It's like you don't even know what a shell company is, or what they're used for. They're used to hide the identity of the actual owners. I'd stop while you're only a bit behind.

    I was going to say your post sounds vaguely like sealioning. But really, its the technical definition of sealioning.

    And you need to educate yourself on the difference between client and owner:

    But Lako says claims of wrongdoing are false, and that Hannity's involvement with Henssler Capital are not linked to Henssler Financial.

    'Henssler Capital is a separate and distinct legal entity from Henssler Financial. Each company has different lines of business and Henssler Capital does not offer its services to the general public', he said.

    'Mr. Hannity has no ownership interest in Henssler Financial, the company he discusses in his media offerings, and to which his affiliation was disclosed. Henssler Financial does provide financial advice and other services to the general public and has hundreds of clients (including Mr. Hannity) with total assets under advisement of over $1.8 billion as of December 31, 2017.

    'At no time, while I was on his show and writing articles for his twitter feed was there ever an offer made to any of his listeners or twitter followers to become a client of Henssler Financial and certainly not Henssler Capital.'

    Don't mind Torto. Every time he posts, he is either wrong, or he's lying. Either way, you won't get a correct answer out of him. Even if you give him direct evidence that he is wrong, he will die on the hill of wrongness he made.

    Going to repeat my own post here:

    https://medium.com/@ScottMStedman/se...s-f78939a9e6c2

    For months, Fox News’s Sean Hannity has promoted Henssler Financial and its Principal and Managing Director, Bil Lako.

    Corporate documents and U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) records have revealed that Hannity is secretly a co-owner of Henssler Financial’s affiliate, Henssler Capital. His advertisement of the financial advisory firm came as the group sought and received millions of dollars in funding from investors.

    What’s more, Henssler’s SEC filing shows that the group applied for a federal exemption under rule 506(b), allowing the company to raise an unlimited amount of money and sell to an unlimited number of investors. In order to be eligible to receive this exemption, companies must not participate in “general solicitation or advertising to market the securities.” Neglecting this requirement may result in a penalty.
    Short version: Hannity's company (that he secretly owns!) was operating under federal regulations that do not allow public advertising while he was advertising them nationally. How big a hammer the SEC can smack him with, I do not know. (Or if they even will under the administration of Treasonous Crook Trump.) It may qualify as federal financial fraud, which can be a felony.

    Now, I'm not under any illusion that you'll actually acknowledge the facts. But watching you ignore them (or blast out nonsense) should be amusing, and really drive home how willingly blind you are.

    Sounds like Sean Hannity took Jesse Pinkman's advice:

    I have no idea how he or she turns those out so quickly. Is gay smut the secret to fighting writer's block or something?

    I think they're self-published short stories. You can probably turn those around pretty fast.

    And gay erotica just kind of rolls off the tongue :P
