Federal judge Kimba Wood ordered an attorney for Cohen to reveal the identity of a client that Cohen's team had withheld in earlier court documents as part of a dispute over evidence seized by the FBI from Cohen's home and office earlier this month.
Cohen's lawyers did not detail the type of legal work he did for Hannity.
Hannity is under attack for failing to disclose his relationship with Trump's longtime lawyer and fixer despite using his show-America's most watched cable news program in 2017-to promote the president and defend Cohen multiple times.
The Politico reporter said he spoke with Hannity past year, during an advertiser boycott of Hannity's show when the TV host was aggressively pushing a conspiracy theory about the killing of a Democratic National Committee staffer, Seth Rich.

He said India has emerged as a global power whose voice can not be ignored in any conversation on a global platform. Modi also said developments in Europe and Asia came up for detailed discussion during the bilateral summit.
MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Monday cracked herself up as she was reporting on the Sean Hannity-Michael Cohen bombshell.
Indeed, mass confusion relating to the attorney-client privilege spread like a new strain of flu Monday as Michael Cohen's attorneys sought refuge for his clients under its protective shield.
Hannity's name emerged after the judge pressed Cohen to divulge the names of the clients he's worked with since the 2016 election, whose privileged communications might be contained within his files.
"As you can imagine, there was really shock in the courtroom", the CNN correspondent said.

As a result, the trade surplus came to more than 48 billion dollars, down 26.2 percent year-on-year. That left China with a rare trade deficit for the month, also the first drop since last February.
According to The Post's sources, the president feels he is able to call Hannity when he is fed up with his staff, something journalist Michael Wolff alluded to in his tell-all book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House. Maddow continued. "Sean Hannity meeting with his lawyer on national television without disclosing that the guy he was interviewing was actually his own lawyer". I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees.
Fox News' strategic contrarian Shep Smith on Monday called the breaking news of Hannity's alleged status as Michael Cohen's third client the "elephant in the room" at their shared workplace. "I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective". "Something like that. I requested that privilege with him when I would ask him: 'Well, this just came up".
In a political world of legal semantics and lawerly answers that hedge more than they clarify, some things are unmistakably clear: if a client doesn't think you are his attorney, you're not.
