Trump lawyer Cohen performed secret legal work for Hannity

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, told a federal judge that he had three legal clients this past year-- the President, former deputy chair of the RNC Elliott Broidy and a third individual whose identity Cohen wanted to keep private.

It was revealed on Monday that the third client was Fox News commentator, Sean Hannity.

Cohen is under criminal investigation for possible bank fraud and violations in handling Trump's campaign finances. 

The President's lawyer is also accused of secretly paying porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep details of an alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Trump quiet. 

This past week, it became public that Cohen facilitated a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model who said she became pregnant from a relationship with Broidy, who resigned Friday when the payment became public.

The FBI raided Cohen's office and home last week for material that could be used as evidence in the investigation.
