Trump's personal lawyer names mystery client in court: Sean Hannity

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, who is suing Cohen in a separate case, also came to court.

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.

For Trump, it was the alleged $130,000 payoff of porn star Stormy Daniels in exchange for silence.

Over the last several months, Hannity has turned his primetime Fox News program into the most reliably pro-Trump show on any network. That he did some legal work for him along the way.

Jill Rhodes did not offer any kind of statement on that incident, and she is quiet once again after Sean Hannity was identified as a client of Michael Cohen.

"We have been friends a long time".

Cohen has argued that some of the seized documents are protected by attorney-client privilege or otherwise unconnected to the investigation, but Judge Kimba Wood rejected his efforts to mask a client Cohen had said wanted to avoid publicity. Ms Daniels quietly took a seat towards the back of the public gallery with her lawyer, Michael Avenatti.

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.

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".

They also said that Cohen appeared to have few clients other than the President and they had not uncovered any emails between the two suggesting the potential risk of violating attorney client privilege was slim.

A judge on Friday ordered that Mr Cohen be present at Monday's hearing so that he could answer questions about his clients.

Michael Cohen, personal lawyer for President Trump, revealed in court Monday afternoon that Fox News commentator and Long Island-native Sean Hannity is the third client Cohen performed secret legal work for.

It also emerged Cohen facilitated a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model who said she became pregnant from a relationship with Broidy, who was the deputy chair of the Republican National Committee until he resigned Friday when the payment became public. From 2007 to 2017, Cohen worked as a lawyer for Trump and the Trump Organization.

The raids were based partly on a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, who is investigating possible collusion between the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and Russian Federation, according to court filings.
