Trump lawyer Michael Cohen says he represented Sean Hannity
NEW YORK (AP)- President Donald Trump's personal attorney has been forced to reveal that another of his clients is Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Lawyers for Michael Cohen argued in court on Monday that they could not identify Hannity because he asked that his name not be disclosed in connection with an FBI seizure of Cohen's files. But Judge Kimba Wood made one of the lawyers identify him in open court.
The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise raid this month on Cohen's home and office. The search sought information on a variety of matters, including a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels, who alleges she had sex with a married Trump in 2006.
Daniels was in the courtroom on Monday for the arguments.
