Harrison, after being told by Wood that the name had to be revealed, then said Hannity's name out loud. Prosecutors in NY haven't identified what specifically they're probing, although they said in a court filing that "the crimes being investigated involve acts of concealment by Cohen". He did, however, provide a terse statement to the Wall Street Journal, which broke the story. Cohen had argued that the documents seized were subject to attorney-client privilege, and the judge demanded that he list his clients so this claim could be evaluated.

Attorneys for Cohen had already applied to Judge Kimba Wood at Manhattan federal court for a restraining order that would stop authorities reviewing the records seized from Cohen until Cohen's team has reviewed the materials themselves.

But on a day of high drama, her presence was overshadowed by the revelation that a previously unnamed client of Mr Cohen's was Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Cohen was set to attend Monday's hearing.

The letter says that from 1996 to 2006, Cohen had hundreds of clients, adding that he did not know if any material from those old clients were in the seized files.

President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, arrived at the federal court in Manhattan on Monday afternoon for a hearing relating to materials seized from his home, office, and hotel room.

"The president objects to the government's proposal to use a "taint team" of prosecutors from the very office that is investigating this matter to conduct the initial privilege review of documents seized from the President's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, " Trump lawyer Joanna Hendon wrote to the judge on Sunday.

Earlier Monday, Cohen's attorneys argued that the third client's name should remain anonymous.

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.

Last week's raids came after a "months-long" investigation related largely to Mr Cohen's business dealings, rather than his work as a lawyer, prosecutors have said. Cohen has long described himself as an attorney for Trump but has for years filled a more wide-ranging role as a general troubleshooter.

"It is clear, as I have been warning, Mueller is out to get the president and it appears at any cost", he said referring to the Department of Justice special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by the Trump White House.
