Trump lawyer forced to reveal another client: Sean Hannity

In that capacity, Cohen negotiated a payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels so she wouldn't go public with her alleged affair with Trump. "I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees", Hannity said in a widely disseminated statement after the story broke. The conservative host often uses his weeknight broadcast on Fox News to defend the president against what he sees as biased attacks by the media.

But there is an even bigger hole in Hannity's explanation: Why, as he railed against Federal Bureau of Investigation raids of Cohen's office, home and hotel room last week, did Hannity not disclose to viewers and listeners that his communications with Cohen could have been among the materials seized?

Cohen's lawyers resisted revealing the name of the third client, saying it would be embarrassing and unnecessary. She is expected to rule later.

But the bridge to Trump's past represented by the FBI's swoop against Cohen could test the President's Teflon hide.

Photographers knocked over barricades outside the courthouse as they scrambled to get pictures of Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, arriving dressed in a lavender suit.

"Jon Stewart", he told his former "Daily Show" boss, "after the show, I'm gonna come over and we're just gonna spoon". "I might have handed him 10 bucks [and said, ] 'I definitely want your attorney-client privilege on this, '" the host boasted.

At one point, the judge made clear that for Cohen's claim to proceed, he would have to reveal the names of all the clients he has worked with since the 2016 election. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective.' That sounds normal.

Just before 3 p.m. Monday, while hosting his nationally syndicated radio show, Hannity posted a message on Twitter: "Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter".

This is the man Stormy Daniels says threatened her
Avenatti said that the sketch was created by Lois Gibson , who holds the world record for the most successful forensic artist. The adult-film star said she was threatened with physical violence in 2011 after she tried to go public with the story.

Hannity addressed the controversy twice during his television show Monday night, brushing off criticism from lawyer Alan Dershowitz who told him, "you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on the show".

Legal advice can be considered privileged even if given by a lawyer for free. "Michael would give me his time".

Hannity joked about the situation in another segment featuring David Limbaugh (Rush's brother) and Lanny Davis, suggesting one or both are his attorneys.

Mr Trump's attorney says the computers, phones and documents should be protected under attorney-client privilege.

But prosecutors want the documents to be reviewed for attorney-client privilege by a "taint team" of lawyers within their own office, who would be walled off from the main prosecution team. "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".

But she also said that to help ensure fairness and the perception of fairness, "a special master might have some role here".

Although he later clarified his comments to suggest that he expected that some of his conversations with Cohen would be confidential, his earlier denial that a relationship ever existed renders that expectation unpersuasive.
