COMING UP:Share Opener Variant 2



Hannity responding with a tweet saying, quote, Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions, about which I wanted his input and perspective. Reuters correspondent Brendan Pierson.
>> We don't know anything about the nature of the relationship between Cohen and Hannity. But we do know that Hannity had asked that his name be kept secret, that he did not want it out there, and the judge ordered it to be disclosed anyways. So that was probably the biggest revelation from today's hearing.
>> Hannity is one of only three known legal clients of Cohen's, including the president and Trump ally Elliott Broidy. For whom Cohen arranged a $1.6 million payment to a Playboy Playmate to keep her sexual relationship with Broidy a secret. Cohen's New York offices and home were raided by the FBI last week.
A source told Reuters that investigators were seeking information about a $130,000 payment made by Cohen to Daniels just before the 2016 election. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said she had sex with Trump while he was married. The president has said he did not know about the payment.
>> No, I don’t know.>> Lawyers for Cohen and President Trump demanded that the court block prosecutors from reviewing the records seized in the FBI raid, arguing some materials may protected by attorney-client privilege. But the judge on Monday rejected that request, and said she would consider appointing a special master to assist prosecutors, when or if they review the documents.
