Trump's personal lawyer coughs up name of mystery client: Sean Hannity

The Point: If I wrote a screenplay in which a lawyer/fixer had only three clients - the President of the United States, a major GOP donor trying to cover up allegations of impregnating a Playmate and Sean Hannity - roughly ZERO major or minor studios would buy that script, considering how improbable it all is.

But, for at least those three other clients, during 2017-2018, Cohen was performing "more traditional legal tasks", the letter said.

An attorney representing Cohen, whose office and hotel room were raided by the FBI a week ago, made the announcement in court on Monday after a federal judge ordered the identity of the client to be revealed.

Cohen had his home, office and hotel room raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week, with authorities reportedly seeking records into payments Cohen facilitated to women in exchange for their silence.

Prosecutors suggested in their filing that while Cohen "holds himself out as a practicing attorney", he is actually exaggerating the extent of his work in an attempt to cast a wide net of attorney-client privilege over the records seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "But I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective".

Hannity said none of the conversations he had with Cohen, which he "assumed" were confidential, involved "any matter between me and a third-party".

Cohen is under criminal investigation, prosecutors confirmed last Friday.

Failing that, they want the court to appoint an independent official known as a special master, a role typically filled by a lawyer, to go through the documents and electronic data seized under a warrant and decide what prosecutors can see. "We are devoting a large amount of resources to the whole case but, in particular, to our filter team to get this review done very quickly".

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.

Cohen is "being investigated for criminal conduct that largely centers on his personal business dealings", Thomas McKay, an assistant USA attorney, said in a court filing.

As his name was revealed as Cohen's third client Monday, Hannity's national radio show began with dead air.

Cohen's attorney had previously identified two other clients: Trump and Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy. He said Cohen reached out to him after being contacted by Keith Davidson, an attorney representing the woman, and said he retained Trump's lawyer "after he informed me about his prior relationship with Mr. Davidson".
