Trump lawyer Michael Cohen expected at court hearing over searches

Today, she looked just as assured in a similar hue, though more millennial pink this time, as she was rushed through aggressive swarms of media into a federal courthouse in NY for Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's hearing on how the materials seized from his home and office by the FBI should be handled.

The hearing in a Manhattan courtroom also included the bombshell reveal that Cohen's mystery third client is none other that Sean Hannity, the Fox News host and Trump champion who has railed on-air against the FBI, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation. She is engaged in a legal battle with Cohen over a $130,000 agreement for her to keep quiet about a 2006 sexual encounter she says she had with Trump. The action had left President Trump livid and he posted on Twitter, saying attorney-client privilege was dead. Sometimes Trump praises Hannity in return.

The disclosure came as attorneys for Cohen and Trump tried to persuade a NY judge to delay prosecutors from examining records and electronic devices seized in the raids on the grounds that many of them are protected by attorney-client privilege.

The Russia investigation has frustrated the White House as it has spread to enfold some of Trump's closest confidantes. She is expected to rule later. Prosecutors say Cohen is being investigated for an undisclosed crime related to his personal business dealings.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, plans to attend Monday's hearing, her lawyer Michael Avenatti, said on Sunday.

"I think Monday afternoon could prove to be very interesting", her lawyer Michael Avenatti told CNN. Cohen, in a light blue tie and dark suit, spent most of the hearing looking forward, his hands folded.

Court papers filed by Robert Khuzami, the deputy USA attorney in Manhattan, are redacted making it unclear the alleged criminal conduct for which the 51-year-old Cohen is being investigated.

But they initially declined to reveal the name of the third client.

"I understand if he doesn't want his name out there, but that's not enough under the law", Wood said, before ordering the name disclosed.

Cohen's lawyers did not detail the type of legal work he did for Hannity.

An email sent to Fox News seeking comment from Hannity was not immediately returned. "I had brief discussions with him about legal questions where I wanted his input and perspective".

"Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past", he tweeted Sunday.

The Latest on efforts by President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer to stop criminal prosecutors from reviewing materials seized in raids before they have a chance to review them for potential breach of attorney-client privilege. He never mentioned his association with Cohen during the broadcast.

One of his lawyers, Joanna Hendon, asked the court to permit Mr Cohen to have the first crack at reviewing the documents and then submit them to Mr Trump to determine if they would violate attorney-client privilege.

His lawyers want to be allowed to decide which items seized are protected by attorney-client privilege before criminal prosecutors see them. Cohen's office, residence and hotel room were raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week during which documents and other materials were seized.

Wood said she would consider the idea.
