>> Hi, everyone.>> Stormy Daniels and her attorney on Tuesday released a composite sketch of the man she said threatened her years ago to keep quiet about her alleged affair with the married Donald Trump. Daniels told CBS 60 Minutes last month that she had been threatened by a man while in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 with her infant daughter.

This disclosure comes at a turbulent time for the president, with Monday's whirlwind court hearing for his personal attorney Michael Cohen, whose offices were raided by federal prosecutors in New York. Daniels, whom Cohen paid $130,000 to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump, slammed Cohen outside the courthouse, Monday.

>> Mr. Cohen has acted like he is above the law. My attorney and I are committed to making sure that everyone finds out the truth.>> While her appearance triggered a media stampede, she was ultimately overshadowed by a bombshell disclosure from Cohen, who was forced to reveal that his previously undisclosed third client is none other than Fox News Host Sean Hannity.

Brandon Pearson was at the courthouse, Monday, and tried to unweave this ever-expanding legal web that's spinning around Donald Trump.>> Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's personal lawyer, has been under criminal investigation for several months now. And we know that this is at least partly a referral from the team of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
00:01:19
We really don't know much about how that referral came about, what the possible relationship is between the two investigations.>> Authorities seized documents in a raid on Cohens home, office, and hotel room. A judge is now deciding whether to appoint an independent official known as a special master to go through the records and decide what prosecuters can see.

A decision that could have implications for every player in this unfolding drama, Cohen, Stormy Daniels, Sean Hannity, and President Trump. And Daniels, who is separately suing the president and Michael Cohen, is trying to keep the headlines blazing and the president sweating. On Tuesday, her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, asked the public for help identifying the man in the sketch, and offered a $100,000 reward for information leading to his identification.
