    Cohen Matter: Prosecutors must turn over docs

    Prosecutors must turn over docs


    Wood ruled prosecutors have to turn over the seized material from last Monday's raid to Cohen's attorneys so they can tell the judge how much of it might be subject to attorney client privilege.

    Cohen's lawyer can then share subsets of the material to Trump and the Trump Organization.

    Wood indicated she would rule after prosecutors and Cohen come back with an estimate of the volume of material that could be subject to attorney client privilege. She will then decide whether a government "taint team" of investigators separate from the investigation or an appointed special master would ultimately review the seized materials before prosecutors can use the evidence in the investigation.er.

    The judge asked both sides to provide four names each as potential special masters, but made clear she has not decided that will be her final decision.

    Cohen looked like he saw a ghost when he was leaving the court room.

    I would be shocked if they didn't have to share it back. Discovery is a two way street.

    I would find this curious if this didn't go to SCOTUS very quickly as this has never been done to a sitting President.

    Share what back? Cohen has not been charged with anything and the warrants are in the hands of Cohen so he knows what evidence they submitted to get the warrants already. The government has nothing else they have to turn over unless there are charges.

    The judge agreed to give copies of the evidence that was seized during the searches to Cohen's legal team for their review. No big deal. Cohen has all of that anyway.

    As for a President never before having experienced anything like this, it's because we've never before had a President whose personal lawyer was under criminal investigation.

    Really? No, he obviously does not as the court ordered it turned over to him. The feds took everything last Monday.

    Right. What I meant was that he's not going to see anything new in copies of his own documents. I wasn't very clear about my meaning there.

    At any rate... Yeah. The judge did agree to give Cohen's team copies of everything. I don't really see that as big news.

    At first the judge was indicating she was not going to order this, then changed her mined and ordered it.

    I don't have a problem with that. Seems fair.
