Default Michael Cohen's mystery third client is Sean Hannity

The fact that Hannity was and is so rabid in his defense of all things Trump, especially this Cohen seizure thing, will now definitely not look so good. But, on the other hand, this guy could just be trying to use Hannity for a bit cover.

Anyway. Judge Andrew Napolitano (He is admittedly righwingish in most of his opinions) Was explaining Mulners seizure process and his probable train of thought following the evidence in his investigation. I will try to find it and post it. It was pretty black and white when all the political partisanship is removed from the process.

------------------------------------------------
Lots more
https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/16/polit...ing/index.html
----------------------------

New York (CNN)Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen also represents Fox News host Sean Hannity, Cohen's attorneys said Monday afternoon.

Cohen had told the court earlier he had at least 10 clients between 2017 and 2018, including the President, and the former GOP fundraiser Elliot Broidy who acknowledged paying $1.6 million to a Playboy model with whom he had an affair.

The disclosure came in a hearing where Judge Kimba Wood also ordered prosecutors to turn over material seized in a raid last week to Cohen's legal team so they can say how much they believe is subject to attorney-client privilege.
Cohen's lawyers had publicly identified Trump and Broidy as clients, but revealed Hannity's name only after the judge ordered them to.
On his radio show Monday, Hannity said, "I never retained him in the traditional sense" and said he believed his conversations about legal questions were confidential.
"I've known Michael a long, long time. Let me be very clear to the media. Michael never represented me in any matter. I never retained him in the traditional sense as retaining a lawyer. I never received an invoice from Michael. I never paid legal fees to Michael," Hannity said.
"But I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective," he added. "And I assume that those conversations were attorney-client confidential."
Hannity added, "not one of any issue I ever dealt with Michael Cohen on ever, ever involved a matter between me and any third party."
Fox News host Shepard Smith acknowledged Hannity's connection to Cohen on the air Monday.
"We just spoke with his publicist here at Fox News who says that he says they have been friends a long time, he never denied that he was his lawyer, that he did some legal work for him along the way, and that's the extent of that," Smith said.
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 after prosecutors and Cohen come back with an estimate of the volume of material that would have to be reviewed by a "taint team" or special master.
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 declined to comment while leaving the courtroom.
Cohen's lawyers have called the raid "completely unprecedented."
"This is perhaps the most highly publicized search warrant in the history of recent American criminal jurisprudence. It is paramount that the review of Mr. Cohen's data and documents be handled in such a way as to eliminate, as much as possible, even the 'appearance of unfairness,'" they argued in a letter to Wood.
Late Sunday, lawyers for Trump also asked for copies of the seized material to be turned over so the President could review them for confidential information.
Prosecutors with the US attorney's office in Manhattan said they have a "filter team" of lawyers separate from those involved in the investigation in place to review the documents for any communications between Cohen and his clients.
Prosecutor Thomas McKay told the judge during a sidebar session on Friday, "This is a fast-moving investigation. We are devoting a large amount of resources to the whole case but, in particular, to our filter team to get this review done very quickly."
Cohen acknowledged that seven of the 10 clients he had in 2017 to 2018 involved business consulting over legal advice. He also listed in broad terms his legal work in the dozen years before he began working for the Trump Organization in 2007.

Ooo.. I found it. You will likely have to clicky the Tube link as it is posted on FoxNews channel there and they almost always restrict playback to the tube.

U.S. District Judge Kimbra Wood has denied a request from President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen to review the documents seized from the lawyer's home and office.
Interesting, appointed by Obama and she at one time worked at a playboy casino.
Kind of makes you wonder how she paid her way through collage don't it.
Anyway .. the key is "if" .. nothing more.
Muller wont get him Daniels wont get him the media wont get him and certainly not a bunch of armchair lawyers mmm?
The investigation continues and with Trumps approval despite complaints and the other investigations to come will swing the other way.
Anything else is just negative propaganda.
Nice try to paint it but its already a done deal and besides the paint is undeniably red.

Crooked Hannity. These republican establishment elitists all work together. Hannity is good friends with the Dump. And he goes on air defending the Dump and Cohen. Without disclosing that Cohen is his own personal attorney.

That's like having Rachel Maddow having the same lawyer as Hillary Clinton. And not disclosing that while reporting on it.

Poor Hannity, gonna get kicked to the curb. No more targeting conservatives for you!

This is such bullshit.

If attorney has a client, that has never paid an invoice, has never represented the client in any legal proceeding and basically just gave a bit of advice, is the client really a client?
Answer: NO. Duh!

On the other hand, if David Barnett represented Bill clinton, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Michelle Obama, Jake Tapper, Jim Acosta, Brian Williams, Brit Hume, Steve Doocy and Juan Williams......are they all in collusion with each other?
http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/18/cl...d-journalists/

Not to mention little facts like ya know, Ben Rhodes, the creative write Obama put in charge of our foreign policy happens to be the brother of the ABC CEO and hundreds of other familial connections between the Obama White House and Fake News Media.

Oh and lastly, one name GEORGE STEPHANOPOLOUS. He was the boy wonder hack that ended up being ABC's most featured political journalist.

Please, the Sean Hannity Michael Cohan story is such pretentious pearl clutching by the left.
