One is Donald Trump.

The Point: If I wrote a screenplay in which a lawyer/fixer had only three clients - the President of the United States, a major GOP donor trying to cover up allegations of impregnating a Playmate and Sean Hannity - roughly ZERO major or minor studios would buy that script, considering how improbable it all is.

Moments before Sean Hannity's radio show started on Monday, an astonishing story broke: Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, revealed that Hannity was the third mystery client he had provided legal services to over the past year.

Cohen's lawyers tried to prevent Hannity's name from being disclosed earlier in the day, but District Judge Kimba Wood demanded it, according to numerous news reports. Hannity was named Monday as a client Michael Cohen.

After his identity was revealed, Hannity said on his radio show said he had never received an invoice from Cohen, nor had Cohen ever represented him in a legal matter. "I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third party". I never paid legal fees to Michael. "But I have occasionally had brief legal discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective".

The UK beauty industry is worth £4 billion and it is thought that social media has played a big part in the growth. Six owners of raided companies were arrested while the rest received cease-and-desist orders.

Hannity is an outspoken defender of Trump and is known to communicate frequently with the president.

At issue is exactly who gets to look at Cohen's seized documents and devices before they are turned over to prosecutors.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized Cohen's computers, phones, office and hotel room in a raid that sought, among other records, all communications between Cohen and Trump and his campaign aides. People familiar with the probe told The Associated Press that agents were seeking bank records, records on Cohen's dealing in the taxi industry, Cohen's communications with the Trump campaign and information on payments made in 2016 to two women who say they had affairs with Trump, former Playboy model Karen McDougal and the porn star Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

"In today's proceedings that are underway right now, Stephen Ryan, one of Cohen's attorneys, was asked by the judge to specifically name the other name because they said it would not fall under attorney-client privilege to withhold that name".
