Trump & Hannity's 'fair and balanced' hush money lawyer

One is Donald Trump.

Hannity and Dershowitz, both Fox News figures who Trump reportedly gets advice from, discussed Hannity's relationship to Cohen on his show Monday evening.

Just before 4 p.m., he posted a message on Twitter: "Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter". The lawyers did not say what legal work Cohen had performed for Hannity. A USA judge will hear more arguments about President Donald Trump's extraordinary request that he be allowed to review records seized from his lawyer, Michael Cohen, office as part of a criminal investigation before they are examined by prosecutors.

The suggestion that Hannity wasn't a serious client bolsters prosecutors' assertion that Cohen had no clients other than Trump in recent years, which they argued meant the potential scope of privileged material would be narrow.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is not a party to the litigation brought by Cohen and Trump over the search warrants executed last week, but she and attorney Michael Avenatti attended the hearing Monday.

"As to the one unnamed legal client, we do not believe that Mr. Cohen should be asked to reveal the name or can permissibly do so", the letter said.

Judge Kimba Wood spent more than 2-1/2 hours listening to arguments by Cohen's lawyers, prosecutors from the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan and a lawyer representing Trump in the hearing. "It nearly goes without saying, unfortunately, that none of Mr. Cohen's clients want to be associated with the government raid on his home and law office, or want to be affiliated in any way with the proceedings here and the attendant media coverage".

TONIGHT: A new name popped up in the case of the man who paid off Stormy Daniels.

But prosecutors said Trump had no more rights under the law than anyone else if his lawyer committed a crime.

But when it came to the third client, "he tried everything to keep it secret, but the judge ordered him to reveal the name of Client No. 3".

The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's home and office.

Cohen has arranged at least two hush-money payments to women who claimed they had sexual affairs with Trump.

Cohen's lawyers have called the raid "completely unprecedented".

At the end of the show, Hannity finally got around to elaborating on his relationship with Cohen, but the segment mainly consisted of him mocking the mainstream media for its coverage of Cohen, who he now describes as "me and President Trump's personal attorney".

Daniels, wearing a pink skirt and black heels, stumbled and nearly fell on the wet sidewalk outside the courthouse among a throng of reporters and camera crews. She says she had sex with a married Trump in 2006. The privilege extends to only those private conversations that take place within an established attorney-client relationship, and even then, those conversations must specifically pertain to legal advice.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney has arrived at a New York City courthouse for a hearing over an Federal Bureau of Investigation search of his files. He later tweeted that he mostly asked Cohen questions about legal matters.

Lawyers for President Donald Trump's personal attorney say investigators "took everything" during raids last week on his residence and office.

Cohen's lawyers did not detail the type of legal work he did for Hannity.

McKay told the court on Monday that 10 boxes of documents had been seized, as well as "hard drives, the electronic devices" with a lot more material.

But Hannity's explanation cuts against the claim of attorney-client privilege asserted by Cohen's attorneys in court.

The submission in Manhattan federal court came prior to a hearing scheduled for the afternoon.

Daniels appeared in court with her attorney for the proceedings. He has denied wrongdoing. Stormy Daniels was in the courtroom on Monday for the arguments, after which the federal judge rejected a request from President Donald Trump and Cohen's team for a temporary restraining order that would have kept federal prosecutors from reading files seized last week.
