Michael Cohen, personal lawyer for President Trump, revealed in court Monday afternoon that Fox News commentator and Long Island-native Sean Hannity is the third client Cohen performed secret legal work for.

Adult-film star Stormy Daniels arrived at a Manhattan courthouse on April 16, to attend a hearing for President Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen.

The three other clients, according to the letter, are Trump, Broidy and a third client whom Cohen initially did not want to be identified.

A judge ruled that Michael Cohen, the president's long-time personal attorney, must reveal he had been retained by Sean Hannity.

A federal judge had asked Cohen to reveal his client list after he argued that material seized by FBI agents during a raid of his office and residences last week was privileged.

Cohen is asking for the review to be conducted by a court-appointed attorney.

Prosecutors with the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan said they have a "filter team" of lawyers separate from those involved in the investigation in place to review the documents for any communications between Cohen and his clients.

The Home Office earlier confirmed the meeting was requested but the subject of the proposed meeting was not made clear. Labour MP David Lammy had co-ordinated a letter to the PM condemning the "grotesque, immoral and inhumane" situation.

March Retail Sales Rose 4.5% YOY
Online and other non-store sales were up 7.6% year-over-year and up 0.8% over February seasonally adjusted. Gasoline Stations were up 9.7% from March 2017, while Nonstore Retailers were up 9.7% from a year ago .

Prosecutor Thomas McKay told the judge during a sidebar session on Friday, "This is a fast-moving investigation. We are devoting a large amount of resources to the whole case but, in particular, to our filter team to get this review done very quickly".

McKay, the federal prosecutor, said in a court motion arguing against this that Cohen's request was "unprecedented and is not supported by case law".

Cohen was in court for a hearing regarding the investigation into his business dealings. That request came as a result of Cohen's lawyer at the hearing, Todd Harrison, claiming that "thousands" of documents involved would be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Cohen, who is under criminal investigation for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations, wants the material to be reviewed before federal prosecutors have a chance to scrutinize it. The warrant also sought information that included payments allegedly made to keep women silent about affairs with Trump more than a decade ago. The attorneys said in the filing that Cohen represented three clients in the past year: Trump; Elliot Broidy, the Republican fundraiser for whom Cohen helped facilitate a $1.6 million payment to a Playboy playmate; and a third person.

Broidy admitted to the relationship in a statement but did not address whether he impregnated the woman.

Also in the court was Ms Daniels.

The White House has denied Mr Trump had an extramarital affair.
