Fresh off her decision to compel the attorney representing the president's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen to reveal Fox News host Sean Hannity as his mysterious third client, U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood on Monday afternoon rejected a motion by the lawyer that attempted to block the FBI from reviewing the files they seized from Cohen last week.

The New York Times on Monday reported that although Wood blocked Cohen's attempt to halt prosecutors from seeing the files they took from him when he was raided, she did appear prepared to grant him a "special master," or court-appointed outside attorney, to oversee the FBI investigation into him.
