Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's mystery client is Fox News host Sean Hannity
CNBC ^ | April 16, 2018 | by Dan Mangan, Kevin Breuninger

An unnamed client of Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, is Fox News host Sean Hannity.

The revelation came after U.S. District Court judge Kimba Wood ordered Cohen to disclose the name in a court hearing on Monday.

In an earlier court filing Monday morning, lawyers for Cohen refused to identify the recent client — one of three people Cohen represented between 2017 and 2018. The lawyers also refused to identify the names of other past clients.

Lawyers for Cohen — whose business records were seized by FBI agents April 9 — said the then-unnamed client had told Cohen not to disclose his name and that they believed Cohen had a duty not to disclose it.

They also said that if Cohen's clients, other than Trump, were publicly revealed, it is "likely to be embarrassing or detrimental to the client."

How the hell can any judge order an attorney to release a client’s name, when that client has nothing to do with the case. He better fire these people.

None of this is legal. The FBI can’t just shake people down looking for evidence. They need evidence first.

Leaking unrelated attorney-client documents of other people (and Trump) is the entire purpose of the sham raid.

Paying Stormy Daniels is not an FEC violation. There are ample non-campaign reasons to pay her (e.g., protecting the Trump commercial brand). When there are mixed purposes, outside money is fine. The FEC already said this.

The entire fake raid was a sham done on a non-crime, for political purposes.

And just what does Sean Hannity have at all to do with the Trump Russia “investigation” that his relationship has any possible bearing?

This is absolutely insane.

Hannity was saying before that he was sure that he was surveilled. He’s correct.

This alone is reason to fire Mueller and Rosenstein. Kimba Wood needs to be impeached for official misconduct.

“This is absolutely insane.“

It’s a declaration of war against our laws, to me.

Hannity needs to have a lawsuit filed by closing of the business day today.

Well we know what Haanity’s opening monologue tonight will be. So one more time what does any of this have to do with Trump colluding with the Russians to win the election.

The FBI has been weaponized to go after anyone who is a friend of Trump, whether that’s Cohen or Hannity or whoever. The fact that the ACLU is just sitting there twiddling its thumbs while this is going on is what’s really revolting.

Can someone explain how it is not dishonest for Hannitty to not have disclosed this since he is living off daily coverage of the story?

I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, but isn’t this a violation of the rights of the lawyer and any of his clients?

What a poorly written article. It never directly says how Hannity’s name was revealed, or by whom. It hints that it was done by one of Cohen’s attorneys during the hearing.
