WASHINGTON DC: Fox News host Sean Hannity has been revealed as one of only three private legal clients who United States President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen has been representing.

The revelation came as a federal judge rejected a bid by the US President and Cohen to prevent US prosecutors from examining a cache of documents and recordings seized from Trump's long-time confidant, reported the Guardian.

The office of Michael Cohen was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) last week.

In a statement, Stephen Ryan, a lawyer for Cohen, said that the bureau had "seized the privileged communications" between Cohen and his clients.

Furthermore, the documents carrying information related to porn star Stormy Daniels, who alleged that she had an affair with Trump in 2006, were also seized from the office by the FBI.

Trump had branded the FBI raids as an "attack on our country."

According to the report, Hannity, an ardent supporter of the US President, soon after the revelation, said his legal relationship with Cohen involved "occasional discussions with him for his input and perspective" and that he had assumed those discussions were confidential and covered by client confidentiality.

"Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective," Hannity posted on Twitter.

"I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party," the cable news veteran, wrote, in another tweet.

His show "Hannity" reportedly is the most-watched cable news program, averaging 3.2 million viewers in the first quarter of 2018, up from 1.8 million in the early months of 2016.
