Cohen's mystery client revealed as Fox News host

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

Said Hannity, on his radio show Monday: "Not one of any issue I ever dealt with Michael Cohen on ever - ever - involved a matter between me and any third party".

Hannity, the top-rated personality on the most watched USA cable news network, told his viewers on April 9 that the raid on Cohen was part an effort by federal investigators to wrongly impeach the president.

Hannity reported on last week's Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's office "as if he had absolutely no connection to the story", Cooper said Monday night on Anderson Cooper 360. "Never received an invoice, never paid any fees, might have handed him $10, 'I definitely want attorney-client privilege on this.' Something like that", he said.

"I understand if he doesn't want his name out there, but that's not enough under the law", Wood said, before ordering a lawyer for Cohen to disclose the name. Thus, he reasoned, "My discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone that I was asking him questions". "I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear, they never involved any matter between me and a third party".

Hannity claimed earlier this afternoon that the legal advice he sought from Cohen was nearly exclusively about real estate.

A Fox News spokeswoman did not respond to an inquiry on this point.

The bulk of the hearing focused on efforts by lawyers for Trump and Cohen to stop federal prosecutors from sifting through a trove of tax records, business documents, emails and other material that FBI agents seized in the raids last week.

"It's a complex situation when you are speaking to millions of people", Dershowitz said.

"Shockingly", Kimmel said, Cohen's mystery third client "turned out to be my pal Sean Hannity".

He denied being a formal client of Cohen's but said the Trump lawyer provided some advice he considered confidential.

It is not clear why Mr Hannity hired Mr Cohen.

They asked to review the documents before they'd be released but the judge said no and instructed prosecutors to build a searchable database of the documents, without examining their contents. "They're assuming - because I guess he did some type of work for some Republican guy - they're figuring, 'Oh, he must've done a big settlement case for Hannity.' That's not - no, that's not what happened". "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".

"Hannity's producers are working to contact him", Mr. Smith said. Even if Cohen wanted to disclose the discussions, he would only be allowed to do so if Hannity agreed to it.

But she added that "a special master might have some role here", to ensure the perception of fairness.
