FOX news host Sean Hannity revealed as Michael Cohen's third mystery client

He later added: I "may have" handed Cohen "ten bucks" and asked for attorney-client privilege.

Hannity has been a champion of Trump's and Cohen's on his show and a critic of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Hannity's show last week that the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen was like the abuses of the "Gestapo".

A gasp was heard in the courtroom when a Cohen lawyer disclosed the name of the third client: Sean Hannity.

And it turns out, that client is none other than Fox News host Sean Hannity.

The pursuit of Cohen by prosecutors in New York's southern district presents a second front of legal peril for Trump, who reacted furiously to the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids and claimed they were part of the same supposed "witch-hunt" led by Mueller that has blighted his presidency.

Prosecutors say they are investigating Cohen's personal business dealings.

But until Monday afternoon, we didn't know the identity of Cohen's third client - since the mystery client asked to remain anonymous.

Cohen has acknowledged paying pornographic actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 for what her lawyer said was silence about her alleged liaison with Trump shortly before the 2016 election.

It also emerged Cohen facilitated a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model who said she became pregnant from a relationship with Broidy, who was the deputy chair of the Republican National Committee until he resigned Friday when the payment became public.
