    Why would he say that? Now there is no attorney/client privilege. Plus it means Cohen lied to a Federal Judge when he said he was a client. This is a strange turn of events.

    The question is: Just what is a client? Can you get free advice from a lawyer and still claim privilege? Does money have to change hands?
    As a contractor, if I fixed your roof and you paid me, you are a client and I'm responsible for those repairs. If I did it for free, it's just a favor with no strings (privilege) attached.

    As I understand it, an attorney/client relationship must be formally agreed to by both parties before the privilege can exist. You cannot ask an attorney a question at a bar after you buy her a drink and claim attorney/client privilege.

    It's revealing that Hannity was in such a flaming hurry to separate himself from Cohen.

    You would think that he would enjoy being connected to the lawyer of the POTUS. Should be a source of prestige for a media talking head. I mean, in a normal world.

    I taped Hannity's show tonight to see how he would spin this. He came on and said he'd explain the whole thing later in the show but that there were much more important things to discuss. He then went about bashing Comey for 58 minutes. I fast forwarded through this in order to avoid throwing heavy objects at my expensive TV. In the final two minutes, he took one minute to say the left-wing media was going nuts over nothing. The final minute was spent saying that there was absolutely nothing to this, that he never paid Cohen a retainer, that he never got legal advice and that, if anything, he just talked to him for some advice on real estate. He signed off with that big stupid grin on his face.
    What a load of BS! He's hoping really hard that lawyer/ client privilege will save his butt from any dirt coming out. I'll bet Sean isn't going to sleep very well tonight.

    Considering the judge refused the presidential claim that his people should decide what the government can see in the material collected by the warrant search, none of them are going to sleep well tonight.

    What may be covered by privilege between Cohen and Hannity is probably not very interesting, let alone "dirt", let alone criminal. The point is, everything else isn't privileged. He'll talk to Muller and/or the prosecutors in the Cohen case and he'll tell the truth, or get jacked up hard.

    Hannity denies that Cohen was his attorney at all. But they talked a lot about, shall we say, current events.

    .
    A clear explanation of how Sean Hannity has screwed Michael Cohen by a former assisitant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia:

    Fox host Sean Hannity just helped the government's case against President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, tremendously. Even irony itself was not prepared for that development.

    Courtroom drama peaked Monday at a hearing in lower Manhattan when Michael Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, reluctantly revealed to Judge Kimba Wood -- a judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York -- that Cohen's mystery third client was Hannity, the bombastic, unconditional champion of citizen-turned-candidate-turned-President, Donald Trump.

    But the shock of that third-client revelation paled in comparison to Hannity's shocking denial, soon after, that he and Michael Cohen were ever in an attorney-client relationship.

    In fact, while responding on his radio show to news that he had been identified as one of Cohen's three clients, Hannity explicitly stated that he was never represented by nor had he ever retained Cohen. He bent over backwards to deny the relationship, claiming nothing more than a few harmless chit-chats over real estate.

    In an effort to distinguish his interactions with Cohen from those of Trump and Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy (the other two clients), Hannity implied that his own exchanges with Cohen did not entail the silencing of any alleged sexual partner, as these exchanges did not involve any third party.

    Said Hannity, on his radio show Monday: "Not one of any issue I ever dealt with Michael Cohen on ever -- ever -- involved a matter between me and any third party."

    Although he later clarified his comments to suggest that he expected that some of his conversations with Cohen would be confidential, his earlier denial that a relationship ever existed renders that expectation unpersuasive. It is gratuitous doublespeak.

    Hannity's denial fatally undermined any credible claim by Cohen that their communications were protected from disclosure by the attorney client privilege. The privilege extends to only those private conversations that take place within an established attorney-client relationship, and even then, those conversations must specifically pertain to legal advice. The privilege does not extend to conversations simply because one of its participants happens to be an attorney.

    Interestingly enough, this is precisely what the government argued in favor of the disclosure of Cohen's communications with other purported clients. To get the search warrant in the first place, the government had to have convinced the court that Cohen and his so-called clients were not actually in an attorney-client relationship, and therefore their conversations were not privileged.

    Hannity just confirmed that to be true, at least with respect to himself. That certainly undermined the credibility of Cohen and perhaps explains why Cohen wanted to keep their relationship confidential.

    But even if an attorney-client relationship between Cohen and Hannity did actually exist, it is the client, not the attorney, who controls the disclosure of communication. Even if Cohen wanted to disclose the discussions, he would only be allowed to do so if Hannity agreed to it.

    But in this case, Hannity isn't asserting the privilege, so Cohen lacks any basis not to disclose the information or to prevent the government from looking at any communications between himself and Hannity.

    The accidental client is a legal possibility. It is an attorney's responsibility to confirm the existence of an attorney-client relationship or clarify someone's confusion as to whether one exists. But the notion of an accidental attorney is a legal absurdity. And yet, that is the very absurdity on which Cohen rests his claim.

    In a political world of legal semantics and lawerly answers that hedge more than they clarify, some things are unmistakably clear: if a client doesn't think you are his attorney, you're not.

    So, is this the case: Trump wants to get certain things on the air on FOX. Does he use Cohen as a buffer between him and Hannity. Trump passes certain info over to Hannity using FOX , using client/attorney privilege to hid it?
    One step further: Was FOX management complicit in this possible arrangement?
    Wouldn't it be wonderful if FOX News goes down the drain along with Trump? Everyone knows they're in bed together. Let them go down together.

    Hannity just asked real estate questions.

    http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nati...181133596.html

    His real estate dealings were described in a McClatchy story published Wednesday that detailed how he parlayed purchases of the four Manhattan buildings for $11 million in 2011 and 2012 into cash sales totaling $32 million in 2014. The properties’ values, as estimated by New York County tax assessors, had shown little change. Cohen bought one of the buildings for $2 million and sold it for $10 million three years later.

    What will happen between your ears, bobbys, if documents recovered by the FBI from Cohen's office files prove the money laundering is true? And that the clients who paid stupid money laundry prices for real estate properties... were Russians connected to Putin?

    Will it still be fake news, witch hunt etc?

    I think Cohen was pitching talking points to Hannity directly from Trump. To cover his butt, he wrapped it in "legal counsel". Hannity and real estate advice, from Cohen may be true for his interactions 3 or 4 years ago, but not in 2017 or '18.

    Back in 2017..

    Mayor de Blasio said Friday that he’s troubled by shady Russian oligarchs snapping up multi-million-dollar properties in the city — but can’t figure out how to stop them.
    “I see Russian oligarchs as a problem,” the mayor said during an interview with BuzzFeed.
    “What has happened in Russia is deeply, deeply troubling across the board. The fact that oligarchy is people who basically stole the wealth of their country with the help of their government — by the way their government is trying to subvert our elections – there’s a whole host of things.”
    And that, he added, ends up as an issue for New York City.
    “It manifests here as people with a lot of ill-gotten gains buying a lot of property. I don’t like it one bit. I wish I had a specific law or approach to address it. I haven’t found one yet. But, of course, it’s distressing.”


    https://nypost.com/2017/10/20/de-bla...p-real-estate/

    And in Florida..

    Russian elite invested nearly $100 million in Trump buildings.
    A Reuters review found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida.


    https://www.reuters.com/investigates...rump-property/

    Also last year..
    Jared Kushner, the son-in-law of Donald Trump, who acts as his senior White House adviser, secured a multimillion-dollar Manhattan real estate deal with a Soviet-born oligarch whose company was cited in a major New York money laundering case now being investigated by members of Congress.

    Let's summarize, "LOL".

    You claim to be from Jersey.

    You claim to have direct ancestral mob ties.

    You are a construction contractor.

    And you laugh at the improbability of corruption in a lucrative NYC real estate deal.

    LOL, indeed.
