Michael Cohen Represented Sean Hannity

Sean Hannity Michael Cohen mystery client

Cohen's attorney revealed Hannity's identity as they sought to argue they should be able to review materials seized in the raid before federal prosecutors, so that they can determine what documents are protected by attorney-client privilege.

Anyway, also at today's hearing, the Judge Kimba Wood revealed, against the wishes of both Cohen and his mystery client, the name of the mystery client: Sean Hannity.

"I'm denying the motion for a (temporary restraining order) because it's now moot. But I think they're earnest in saying that they think the investigation is off the rails at this point".

Plus, the client had specifically asked for privacy and requested that they appeal any demand to divulge his name.

"I rule it must be disclosed now", she said.

Wood said Monday that "a taint team is a viable option", but it was unclear how she would ultimately decide to assess the possibly privileged material. "That's all there is, nothing more", Hannity said. "Maybe not the complete role, but some role". A special master, however, would be a more palatable solution. And he was not about to let the news about his Cohen connection change that.

Mr Trump's attorney says the computers, phones and documents should be protected under attorney-client privilege. Cohen, too, argued in court Friday that his documents should be kept from prying eyes.

After Mr. Hannity was named, there were audible gasps in the courtroom.

Indeed, while CNN and MSNBC seized on the news with rapturous zeal, the right-wing mediaverse was spectacularly silent on the Cohen-Hannity question. He added that Cohen's "life has been turned upside down".

Fellow MAGA pundit and troll Jack Posobiec called Hannity a casualty of the Mueller probe and Cohen's incompetence.

The attorneys clashed over who should be able to see records seized last week in an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's home, hotel room, and offices. On Monday, a little more detail was shed on the still-sealed areas the government is investigating. The New York Times reported the investigation did not appear to be directly tied to Mueller's investigation of allegations of collusion between Russian Federation and Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. The president, of course, is one of them. The other seven were of a business consulting nature.

For Broidy, Cohen helped broker a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model with whom he had a sexual relationship.

The decision came in a court hearing where it was revealed that the client list of presidential lawyer Michael Cohen, who represented Trump in offering hush money to a porn star, also includes one of the president's biggest supporters: Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Hannity said that his wife would "have a field day" with his forgetting Michael D. Cohen's name, because she always teases him for "having a brain like a sieve".

"I've known Michael a long, long time".

So while it's clear that a conflict of interest exists, we are still not sure if Fox News will listen to critics and give Hannity the boot. "By the way, I'm thinking of hiring Michael Cohen as my lawyer. I've never been a client in the traditional sense". "I don't know what the full thing was that actually went on there". He explained that their conversations never involved any "third party" and were focused on real estate. The judge ordered that Cohen himself be present Monday so that he could answer questions about his clients. She did address a throng of news cameras in front of the courthouse afterward.

Wood adjourned the hearing Monday without making a ruling. That's just silly. More than that, I don't think there's anything incriminating.
