Trump Worlds Collide as Cohen Meets Stormy Daniels in New York Court

A week after his online war of words with Fox News host Sean Hannity Jimmy Kimmel had the opportunity to comment on Monday's surprising courtroom revelation that Hannity was a client of President Donald Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen

Cohen was in court for a hearing regarding the investigation into his business dealings.

Sean Hannity attends a book launch in New York City on April 2, 2018. The second is Elliot Brody, who, according to the Wall Street Journal, hired Cohen to negotiate $1.6 million in payments to a former Playboy model who said Broidy had impregnated her. Cohen's lawyers then wrote of Hannity, "The third legal client directed Mr. Cohen not to reveal the identity publicly".

Cohen is asking Wood for an order allowing his lawyers or a special master appointed by the court to first review the materials before anyone from the US Attorney's Office in the Southern District of NY - which executed the warrant - does so.

Among those expected to attend a hearing at the federal district court in Manhattan is Stormy Daniels, the adult-film star who claims she had sex with Trump in 2006 and took a $130,000 hush payment shortly before the 2016 election.

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.

The other two clients were President Trump and Elliott Broidy, both of whom involved hush money deals over illicit affairs. "It is paramount that the review of Mr. Cohen's data and documents be handled in such a way as to eliminate, as much as possible, even the 'appearance of unfairness, '" the letter said.

Conserve Energy Lights, water heaters, and air conditioning units, among other things, consume the most electricity in hotels. Through these actions, the hotel can build a better name by showing its clients how it values environmental sustainability.

But Judge Kimba Wood made one of the lawyers identify Hannity on Monday.

The third is said to be Sean Hannity. "Upon information and belief, the unnamed legal client's matters are responsive to any matter covered by. the search warrants".

McKay, the federal prosecutor, said in a court motion arguing against this that Cohen's request was "unprecedented and is not supported by case law".

It is unusual but not unprecedented for criminal investigators to seize documents from a lawyer, and there is a policy in place created to shield information covered by the attorney-client privilege. A lawyer's communications with a client are not covered by the privilege if those discussions do not involve legal advice, or were used to further a crime or fraud.

The searching of any attorney's office by the government is highly unusual and typically triggers the appointment of a "taint team" to check seized material for attorney-client privilege.

Cohen is asking for the review to be conducted by a court-appointed attorney.
