Fox News' Sean Hannity Revealed As Mysterious Client of Trump's Personal Attorney

Share

One is Donald Trump.

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen is repping two other clients besides the commander-in-chief. But the third client Cohen had provided legal services to over the past year had remained a mystery until Monday's hearing when a judge forced him to reveal the person's identity.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized Cohen's computers, phones, office and hotel room in a raid that sought, among other records, all communications between Cohen and Trump and his campaign aides.

Cohen paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement, which she says was meant to silence her about an affair she had with Trump. Those included Trump and Elliot Broidy, the former Republican fundraiser who - with the help of Cohen - paid $1.6 million to a Playboy model with whom he had an affair and impregnated.

"And I think Sean Hannity got thrown under the bus by Michael Cohen's counsel today, who was clearly more concerned about protecting the president than protecting Sean Hannity", the lawyer declared. I never retained him in the traditional sense as retaining a lawyer. I never received an invoice. Daniels was in the courtroom on Monday for the arguments.

Hannity said he "occasionally had brief discussions about legal questions" with Cohen, and that he assumed those discussions were protected by attorney-client privilege.

Cohen, who is under investigation for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations, has caught the attention of federal prosecutors for his role in combating negative stories about Trump. In a letter filed with the court last Monday, Cohen's lawyers said that Cohen had a solo law practice and had at least 10 clients during this time.

One of Trump's lawyers, Joanna Hendon, asked the judge to block prosecutors from studying material seized in the raid until Cohen and the president have both had a chance to review those materials and argue which are subject to the "sacred" attorney-client privilege. As a first step, the judge said the government should put the documents in a searchable database to determine which should come under review. "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".
