Sean Hannity Named As Donald Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Mystery Third Client

Sean Hannity Named As Donald Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Mystery Third Client

Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen also represents Fox News host Sean Hannity, Cohen's attorneys said Monday afternoon.

Cohen is asking Wood for an order allowing his lawyers or a special master appointed by the court to first review the materials before anyone from the US Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY - which executed the warrant - does so. Cohen is being investigated for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations, The Washington Post reported, citing an unnamed source.

It's unclear how today's revelation will affect Hannity's coverage of Trump and Cohen going forward.

There are unconfirmed reports that the work was linked to an advertiser boycott of Hannity's show by the left-wing Media Matters group.

It was not clear in what way Sean Hannity and Michael Cohen worked together, but the embattled lawyer has been in the news for working with clients to keep extramarital affairs from hitting the news.

"I think it's pretty amusing", Hannity said.

It was argued that Hannity's identity should not be revealed because it was "likely to be embarrassing or detrimental to the client". He may face charges from a grand jury operating separately from one being used by Robert Mueller, the special counsel, for his Trump-Russia investigation.

Mitchell, 21, went down in the third quarter but later returned to the game. The Thunder dealt with their own injury concern.

Prosecutors with the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan said they have a "filter team" of lawyers separate from those involved in the investigation in place to review the documents for any communications between Cohen and his clients. But Judge Kimba Wood made one of the lawyers identify him in open court.

Davidson also represented former adult film actress Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, a former playmate.

The three other clients, according to the letter, are Trump, Broidy and a third client whom Cohen initially did not want to be identified.

Mr Trump's attorney says he made the payment just before the 2016 election, but maintains Mr Trump did not know about it.

The US Attorney's Office has proposed to use a so-called "taint team" to conduct the initial review - lawyers from the office who are not involved in the Cohen investigation - to determine what, if any material, should be shielded from the investigators because it is protected by attorney-client or another privilege.

He is facing a criminal inquiry, which the president has strongly criticised. Both women claimed to have affairs with Trump, who has denied the allegations.

After last week's raid on Mr Cohen's offices, a visibly angry Hannity took to the airwaves to denounce the probe as a "declared war against the president of the United States".
