    Conflict of interest now I demand Sean Hannity stop reporting about the Cohen matter. Lol.

    Hannity says there is no 3rd person involved in the legal work Cohen did for him. In other words it’s not hush money for a hooker, girlfriend or whatever. He says he didn’t pay Cohen. I fail to see then how there can be a attorney client relationship without payment or a written agreement.

    Of course we will not know for sure if in fact Hannity is telling the truth unless it is revealed by the courts. It would certainly not be above them to buy and sell stocks and bonds based on inside info that was being passed through Cohen to Trump and whatever conversations between them has nothing to do with client and attorney relationship.

    I would like to know what the "probable cause" was to justify the search and seizure.

    Partisans can't be relied upon in issues like this because they only care about the fourth amendment when it's protecting their political allies.

    I'm also confused what is controversial about Hannity being a client of Cohen? Why are so many people in this thread acting like that's some kind of bombshell? ...

    I suspect Hannity may have retained his services back when he was accused of sexual harassment. But that's just a guess.

    In any case - until I see what the probable cause actually was I remain of the belief this was a desperate fishing expedition designed by an overzealous prosecutor desperately searching for some dirt on the President. And if you're looking for dirt on someone - obviously their lawyer is a good place to start, especially if you can get the attorney/client privilege thrown out which looks to be exactly what they are trying to do.

    Perhaps Cohen was paying people off for Hannity as well.

    The backdrop: Cohen was in court today in an attempt to prevent federal prosecutors from accessing documents and electronic devices obtained in a raid of his home and offices last week. In a previous court filing, Cohen said that he had given legal counsel to three clients in the past year, including President Trump and former RNC official Elliott Broidy. The judge refused to decline to name Hannity in that filing, depite Hannity's request.

    Big deal. Tey aren't investigating Hannity. For that matter they are not investigating Trump either.

    It's possible he arranged a settlement with someone that involved payment.

    That is what lawyers do.

    Well I assume thats why Wonderer said this was going to be a doozie. Take Trump out of the equation and the optics here are pretty bad. I dont even think mob lawyers had to out clients. Precedents are the backbone of law and like I said this could be a mistake. The feds had to wiretap mobster Petti back a couple decades ago because they couldnt use papers due to attorney-client privlege.

    I'm not seeing the big deal either..

    It seems now that their Russian Collusion conspiracy has basically collapsed and no one is taking their Russian puppet nonsense seriously anymore they are getting quite desperate: especially if Hannity being a client of Cohen is their new insidious conspiracy.

    Whoíll get the first look at the Michael Cohen cache? The Trump legal sagaís burning question is being taken up now in Manhattan by U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood. Prosecutors want government lawyers to review material seized from Cohenís office, home and hotel room on April 9 in FBI raids. President Donald Trump and Cohen, his longtime personal lawyer, want to block them. Among those on hand: Stormy Daniels, the adult-film star who took a $130,000 hush payment from Cohen shortly before the 2016 election.


    Cohenís legal team will invoke Trumpís name frequently in filings not because he was a Cohen client but because they want to slow down the case, McKay, the U.S. assistant attorney, said. ďIt is in Mr. Cohenís interest to do so,Ē McKay said.

    Wood seemed to voice skepticism about Cohenís argument that they can move quickly to determine which documents are protected by the attorney-client privilege. ďItís not that youíre bad people. Youíve mis-cited the law,Ē she told a Cohen lawyer. (Bob Van Voris)
