Embattled Trump lawyer Michael Cohen’s mysterious third client was revealed Monday as Fox News host Sean Hannity.

Cohen was ordered to appear in court by Judge Kimba Wood and cough up Hannity’s name as part of the investigation into $130,000 in hush money he paid to porn star Stormy Daniels, who had an alleged affair with President Trump in 2006.

Cohen fought against having to reveal the confidential list — all of three clients — as part of a bid to block the feds from reviewing documents that could be protected under attorney-client privilege.

His lawyer Steve Ryan argued — in vain — that the unnamed third client is a “publicly prominent individual” who didn’t want to be associated with the ongoing investigation into Cohen’s business dealings.

“Mr. Cohen has asserted that he has more attorneys of his own than he has clients,” said prosecutor Thomas McKay.

Last week, the FBI raided Cohen’s law office and home related to the payments he made to Daniels.

It was also revealed that Cohen represented Republican National Committee fundraiser Elliott Broidy — who resigned from his post after admitting that the lawyer had arranged a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model whom he had impregnated.
