Trump Lawyer Forced to Reveal Another Client: Sean Hannity

Prosecutors have asked that the seized documents be reviewed for attorney-client privilege by a "filter team" of lawyers within their own office, who would be walled off from the main prosecution team.

Lawyers for Mr Cohen appeared without their client at a hearing on Friday before US District Judge Kimba Wood.

Asked if her presence should be considered a provocation, he responded: "No, not at all".

One was Trump himself. "I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken".

However, though Avenatti said Daniels's presence at the court had nothing to do with making an impact on Cohen psychologically, he tweeted on Sunday morning a scene from the film "The Godfather II" where a Mafia turncoat retracted his testimony after mafia boss Michael Corleone brought the former's own brother with him to watch the court proceedings.

Cohen is asking for the review to be conducted by a court-appointed attorney.

The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's home and office.

The adult actress, who wore a blush pink suit, was mobbed by cameramen and reporters as she arrived at Manhattan federal courthouse, with a minder forced to tell them "Be careful guys" as she nearly fell to the ground.

The hearing is taking place in federal court in Manhattan.

Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer, said at Friday's hearing that he had "every reason to believe" that some documents seized from Cohen related to his client.

Trump said Sunday that all lawyers are now "deflated and concerned" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen.

His lawyers want to be allowed to decide which items seized are protected by attorney-client privilege before criminal prosecutors see them.

It is not clear if she will rule Monday or release a written decision at a later date.

Hannity, an outspoken supporter of Trump, has been a fierce critic of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.

They said investigators seized more than a dozen electronic devices and other items including documents and data unrelated to the probable cause upon which the search warrants were based.

Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti's remarks outside of the courtroom were the cherry on top of the spectacle that unfolded in New York City on Monday, as he warned everyone who has associated with Donald Trump's attorney Michael Cohen in the last three decades that they should be "very, very concerned" about his radioactivity.

The unexpected naming of Hannity made him the latest outsized media personality to be drawn into the investigation's cast of unlikely supporting characters.

The Justice Department says Cohen is being investigated for criminal conduct "that largely centres on his personal business dealings".

"Fairness and justice - as well as the appearance of fairness and justice - require that, before they are turned over to the Investigative Team, the seized materials relating to the President must be reviewed by the only person who is truly motivated to ensure that the privilege is properly invoked and applied: the privilege-holder himself, the President", Hendon wrote.

Cohen, who has denied wrongdoing, arrived early Monday afternoon.

The raid sought information including on a $130,000 payment made to Daniels, who alleges she had sex with a married Trump in 2006.
