Colbert described Cohen as a "New York attorney and sad neck with hair", and referred to his client Broidy as "Donald Trump flattened out by a rolling pin". "By the way, I'm thinking of hiring Michael Cohen as my lawyer", Kimmel joked.
Cohen, who has identified himself as Trump's "fixer", had acknowledged representing the president and former Republican National Committee deputy finance chairman Elliott Broidy, but had initially sought to keep a third name private.
On his prime-time show last week, Fox News host Sean Hannity repeatedly criticised a federal raid on the office and home of Michael Cohen, the embattled personal attorney for President Donald Trump. But the other thing I will need to point out to the media that is apparently going insane over this- not one of any issue I ever dealt with Michael Cohen on ever involved a matter between me and any third party.
Now the secret is out, Hannity says his interactions with Mr Cohen were trivial by comparison and related to informal verbal legal advice about real estate.
Prosecutors said Cohen appeared to have few clients other than the President and they had not uncovered any emails between the two, suggesting the potential risk of violating attorney-client privilege was slim.

"I understand he doesn't want his name out there", Judge Kimba Wood said.

And France has analyzed, yes, it has happened. "We hope there will be no point of no return", the envoy said. The decision to strike, after days of deliberations, marked Trump's second order to attack Syria.

That is, if security is continuing higher in an uptrend, the amount of the protection should also increase and vice versa. It's not hard to see why an official investigation might be annoyed at premature disclosures like this one.
Noah criticized Hannity for not disclosing that he was Cohen's client, despite reporting on him many times on his show.
Both the President and his lawyer say the documents were protected under attorney-client privilege. "It nearly goes without saying, unfortunately, that none of Mr. Cohen's clients want to be associated with the government raid on his home and law office, or want to be affiliated in any way with the proceedings here and the attendant media coverage".
He then went on to read Hannity's statement where he claimed to have never retained him, paid him or was represented by him in any way. Trump also has said that he was unaware of the payment. They prefer the ordinary procedure of reviewing the documents with a panel of prosecutors unrelated to the investigation.
Daniels, in a separate civil case, is fighting a 2016 non-disclosure agreement arranged by Cohen in which she got $130,000 to stop her from discussing her claim she had sex with Trump a decade earlier, something Trump has denied.
"The seized materials relating to the president must be reviewed by the only person who is truly motivated to ensure that the privilege is properly invoked and applied: the privilege-holder himself, the President", Hendon wrote in court papers filed Sunday. "All lawyers are deflated and concerned".
Cohen's lawyers resisted revealing the name of the third client, saying it would be embarrassing and unnecessary.
Federal prosecutors in NY want a special "taint team" of government lawyers to begin reviewing files seized from Cohen during FBI raids last week, so they can decide which are protected by attorney-client privilege and which may be used to prosecute Cohen.
The searching of any attorney's office by the government is highly unusual and typically triggers the appointment of a "taint team" to check seized material for attorney-client privilege.
