Stormy Daniels's attorney said on Sunday that Fox News host Sean Hannity's work with Michael Cohen, President TrumpDonald TrumpEx-Trump lawyer Cohen to pen forward for impeachment book Murkowski says it would be 'appropriate' to bar Trump from holding office again Man known as 'QAnon Shaman' asks Trump for pardon after storming Capitol MORE's personal attorney, is likely to be "far more extensive" than the conservative media personality has let on.

"I think that the relationship is going to be far more extensive than Mr. Hannity has led people to believe," the attorney, Michael Avenatti, said on CNN's "Reliable Sources."

"I don’t know that there’s anything nefarious that went on between Mr. Hannity and Mr. Cohen, or that there was any NDA-type involvement or anything of that nature," he added, using an acronym for nondisclosure agreement. "But what I do know is I think it’s going to be far more extensive than people have been led to believe."


Avenatti's comments came nearly a week after it was revealed in a court hearing that Hannity had been a client of Cohen, a longtime confidant and personal attorney for Trump. 

The exact nature of Cohen's work for Hannity is unclear, and the Fox News host has denied that he is one of the attorney's clients. Hannity has claimed that he never paid Cohen for legal work and that their discussions focused on real estate.

It was also revealed earlier this month that Cohen is the subject of a federal criminal investigation. His home and office were raided this month by FBI agents, who were seeking, among other things, records related to payments made to Daniels and another woman who have alleged having affairs with Trump years ago.

Daniels, an adult-film actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing to void a nondisclosure agreement brokered by Cohen that prohibits her from speaking publicly about the alleged affair.
