Trump lawyer forced to re­veal an­other client: Sean Han­nity

The Times Herald (Norristown, PA) - - NEWS -

NEW YORK » A le­gal fight over what should hap­pen to records the FBI seized from Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s per­sonal at­tor­ney took a sur­prise twist Mon­day when the lawyer, Michael Co­hen, was forced to re­veal a secret — that he had also done le­gal work for Fox News host Sean Han­nity.

The dis­clo­sure came as at­tor­neys for Co­hen and Trump tried to per­suade a New York judge to de­lay pros­e­cu­tors from ex­am­in­ing records and elec­tronic de­vices seized in the raids.

U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said in hear­ings Fri­day and Mon­day that if Co­hen wanted the court to de­clare that some of his files were pro­tected be­cause of at­tor­ney con­fi­den­tial­ity rules, he would have to di­vulge the names of the clients he’s worked with since the 2016 elec­tion.

On his ra­dio show, Han­nity said Co­hen was never in­volved in any mat­ter be­tween him and any third party.

“Michael never rep­re­sented me in any mat­ter,” Han­nity said.
