Sean Hannity ID'd as Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Mystery Client

Judge orders Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to reveal secret client Sean Hannity Sean Hannity ID'd as Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen's Mystery Client

On Monday, a judge had ordered Cohen to release a list of his clients following an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's legal practice and his home.

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

Trump attorney Michael Cohen is also providing legal counsel to Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Prosecutors with the United States 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.

Mr Cohen, the president's fiercely loyal and pugnacious lawyer, is in court to ask a judge to limit the ability of federal prosecutors to review documents seized from him last week as part of a criminal investigation. The warrant also sought information that included payments allegedly made to keep women silent about affairs with Trump more than a decade ago.

Federal prosecutors in NY want a special "taint team" of government lawyers to begin reviewing files seized from Cohen during FBI raids last week, so they can decide which are protected by attorney-client privilege and which may be used to prosecute Cohen.

Earlier Monday, Cohen's attorneys argued that the third client's name should remain anonymous.

The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise raid this month on Cohen's home and office.

The payoff to Ms Daniels could amount to a campaign finance violation.

"I never retained him in the traditional sense as retaining a lawyer, I never received an invoice from Michael, I never paid legal fees to Michael, but I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective".

"As to the one unnamed legal client, we do not believe that Mr. Cohen should be asked to reveal the name or can permissibly do so", the letter said.

It's unusual enough for federal agents to seize an attorney's records, and unprecedented to take those of a president's personal lawyer. A lawyer's communications with a client are not covered by the privilege if those discussions do not involve legal advice, or were used to further a crime or fraud.

Under the procedure, the taint team would turn over to the case investigators all the material that is relevant and not covered by attorney-client privilege. Trump will be represented by his own lawyer, Joanna Hendon, who has requested that the president be given a chance to review the seized materials, which includes more than a dozen electronic devices.
