Sean Hannity unmasked as Trump lawyer's mystery client

Mr Trump, who was in Florida on Monday (local time), said all lawyers are now "deflated and concerned" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Mr Cohen. A little dramatic. Her bodyguards must cost a pretty penny, because they're quite effective. In his defense, Hannity released a statement and a series of tweets, though his remarks didn't go over well with critics.

Monday's hearing in New York City follows an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid this month on the presidential lawyer's home and office.

I mean, he does seem like a sweet guy. On Friday, US District Judge Kimba Wood demanded Cohen appear on Monday - creating a frenzy of reporters outside the courthouse in lower Manhattan.

"I think he is so into this like a pig in the mud he can't get out of it, and I think he deserves to be fired", Connolly said. He says he took out a home equity loan to personally pay porn actress Storm Daniels $130,000 to keep silent about an alleged affair with Trump.

Without disclosing his relationship with Mr. Cohen, Mr. Hannity was fiercely critical of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, and the F.B.I. during the April 9 broadcast of "Hannity" on Fox News.

Not only was the conflict of interest not revealed to viewers, it's unclear whether Fox News brass was aware of it. Spokespeople for Fox News did not respond to multiple requests for comment on whether network executives knew about the matter before Monday.

The White House was quick to dismiss the story, with Trump uncharacteristically keeping his opinions to a minimum.

At one point, the judge made clear that for Cohen's claim to proceed, he would have to reveal the names of all the clients he has worked with since the 2016 election. And Hannity's viewers are not typical news viewers - people who watch nearly any other show would likely feel lied to when they learned something like this had not been disclosed to them, but Hannity's want him to have this kind of relationship with Trumpworld. "Not to play this card, because it does get old, but I still find it fascinating that Trump's relationship with this woman is getting more attention than Bill Clinton's rape allegation against him", Cernovich added, before arguing that the case represented a violation of attorney-client privilege.

"I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective". Outside afterward, she said Cohen has acted like he's above the law and that she and her lawyer are committed to making sure everyone learns the truth.

Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels plans to attend Monday's hearing, her lawyer Michael Avenatti, said on Sunday. He tried everything to keep it secret, but the judge ordered him to reveal the name of client number three.

Two of the clients were Mr Trump and Republican fundraiser Elliot Broidy.

On his prime-time show last week, Fox News host Sean Hannity repeatedly criticised a federal raid on the office and home of Michael Cohen, the embattled personal attorney for President Donald Trump. McKay stressed that the team of government lawyers who would review the seized material would be "walled off" from their colleagues, like himself, who are pursuing the criminal inquiry against Cohen.

Hendon said in court papers that prosecutors have already made up their minds that attorney-client privilege doesn't apply - "a bias that virtually guarantees that there will not be a fair privilege review of the seized materials". "All lawyers are deflated and concerned".

Cohen and Trump's attorneys pushed for the documents to be reviewed by themselves or a third party to determine what can be considered protected by attorney-client privilege.
