He never mentioned anything to his viewers about his own dealings with Cohen. Would Hannity be able to report on wrongdoing by Cohen? How can a network claim to be "fair and balanced" when their top anchor has a relationship with Cohen - Trump's enforcer and main conduit for info and shady deals?

Fox spokespeople also did not respond to questions about whether Hannity would face any disciplinary action.

The legal showdown began last week when FBI agents searched Cohen's office, home, hotel room and safe-deposit box, seizing records and documents as part of a probe by federal prosecutors in NY into possible bank fraud and wire fraud.

Mr. Cohen is under criminal investigation by the United States attorney's office in Manhattan.

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.

Details followed: Hannity told viewers that the raids stemmed from a referral from Mueller to federal prosecutors based in NY, where Cohen, the longtime "fixer" for Trump, has long done his work. Hannity, he added, was only a plot point in the vast right-wing narrative, if a totally bonkers one: "Yeah, of course that's the logical next step in this insanity".

However, Wood ordered Cohen's lawyers to reveal the unknown third client, saying his identity is not subject to attorney-client privilege. The other seven were of a business consulting nature.

US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer was forced on Monday to reveal in a NY federal court that Fox News personality Sean Hannity, one of Trump's most ardent defenders, was also on his client list.

"I've known Michael a long, long time".

I don't know, maybe these photographers thought she was going to take off her clothes. "I have sought legal advice for Michael". "I never retained his services". "Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past", he said. "I never paid a legal fee". "And I assume that those conversations were attorney-client confidential".

According to Hannity, he never dealt with Cohen on matters between him and a "third-party".

Fox News host Shepard Smith acknowledged Hannity's connection to Cohen on the air Monday.

Kimmel asked. "Unless maybe Sean Hannity was thinking of suing himself?"

Cohen's legal team said he had just three clients in 2017 and 2018. Cohen said his only other two clients in the past year were Trump and Republican donor Elliott Broidy.

"I really think that you should have disclosed your relationship with Cohen when you talked about him on this show", Dershowitz said.

Daniels is also in attendance.

Cohen, who is under criminal investigation for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations, has come under scrutiny by federal prosecutors for his efforts to tamp down negative stories about Trump. Both Cohen and adult-film star Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, attended the hearing Monday. Daniels was in the courtroom on Monday for the arguments. She did address a throng of news cameras in front of the courthouse afterward.

Monday's hearing began with an appearance by porn actress Stormy Daniels, who was swarmed by photographers and almost fell as she was hustled into the courthouse, a scene that captured the sensational atmosphere around the case.
