Trump Attorney Michael Cohen Also Represents Fox News Host Sean Hannity


Photographers knocked over barricades as they scrambled in the streets outside the Manhattan courthouse to snap pictures of her as she arrived in a lavender-coloured skirt and jacket.

The FBI last week conducted a no-knock raid on Cohen's office, apartment and hotel room, seizing documents, emails and more, including records of payment to porn star Stormy Daniels shortly before the 2016 presidential election.

Hannity had called out Smith last month, saying the Shepard Smith Reporting host is "clueless" about what his nightly FNC show Hannity does, putting some barbed wire atop the much-proclaimed wall between opinion and reporting at Fox News. Lawyers for Michael Cohen argued in court on Monday that they could not identify Hannity because he asked that his name not be disclosed in connection with an Federal Bureau of Investigation seizure of Cohen's files.

Cohen's legal team has been trying to seal evidence taken in the raids. Harrison, after being told by Wood that the name had to be revealed, then said Hannity's name out loud. We spoke with his publicist here at Fox News who says that he says they have been friends a long time.

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.

"A lot of people here know his number", Smith said.

Cohen's lawyers from McDermott Will and Emery, however, argue that appointing a special master would "avoid even a hint of impropriety here in the review of Mr. Cohen's data and documents".

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

Trump's attorneys demanded in a letter to court on Sunday evening that the justice department's plan be halted so that "our firm and the president may review for privilege those seized documents that relate to him" - an extraordinary request from someone in Trump's position in this kind of case.

Although the issue of who gets the initial review of the seized materials is the primary focus of the hearing, Wood at the first set of hearings on Cohen's request this past Friday made it clear that she wanted to a list of Cohen's claimed clients.

Jill Rhodes has tended to stay on the sidelines as her husband Sean Hannity plays to millions of viewers each night, but now she has been thrust into the spotlight the revelation that the Fox News host is a client of Michael Cohen, the lawyer who specializes in hushing up extramarital affairs. Cohen's other client is Elliot Broidy, a Republican fundraiser who had an affair with a Playboy model, who ultimately became pregnant and had an abortion.
