Could this relationship pose a problem for Fox News?

Under court order, embattled Trump lawyer, Michael Cohen coughed up the identity of his mysterious third client: Sean Hannity.

Manhattan Federal Court Judge Kimba Wood demanded Cohen name Hannity as part of the investigation into the $130,000 Cohen paid to porn star Stormy Daniels.

The New York Post reports:
 

Cohen fought against having to reveal the confidential list — all of three clients — as part of a bid to block the feds from reviewing documents that could be protected under attorney-client privilege.

His lawyer Steve Ryan argued — in vain — that the unnamed third client is a “publicly prominent individual” who didn’t want to be associated with the ongoing investigation into Cohen’s business dealings.

“Mr. Cohen has asserted that he has more attorneys of his own than he has clients,” said prosecutor Thomas McKay.


Cohen also represented a prominent Republican donor who impregnated a Playboy Bunny.
