Sean Hannity defends lack of disclosure about Trump lawyer Michael Cohen

Sean Hannity defends lack of disclosure about Trump lawyer Michael Cohen”

"Never received an invoice, never paid any fees, might have handed him $10, 'I definitely want attorney-client privilege on this.' Something like that", he said.

Colbert described Cohen as a "New York attorney and sad neck with hair", and referred to his client Broidy as "Donald Trump flattened out by a rolling pin". "You could have said just that you asked him for advice or whatever, but I think it would have been much much better had you disclosed that".

"I have the right to privacy", Hannity responded. He then went in on Hannity's claims that he thought his discussions with Cohen were private and that they "never involved any matter between me and a third-party".

People familiar with the probe told The Associated Press that agents were seeking bank records, records on Cohen's dealing in the taxi industry, Cohen's communications with the Trump campaign and information on payments made in 2016 to two women who say they had affairs with Trump, former Playboy model Karen McDougal and Daniels.

Mr Wood ordered Mr Cohen's lawyers to be ready with a list of his clients to support their argument. Hannity also has criticized the raid on Cohen's office and home, never saying anything to his viewers about a personal, legal or business relationship with Cohen.

Rob Gronkowski to miss start of Patriots' offseason program
But Brady, who is traveling with his family, now isn't believed to be thinking about not playing next season; Gronk definitely is. The Patriots begin their voluntary off-season conditioning program Monday and Rob Gronkowski will apparently not take part.

"I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party", the cable news veteran, wrote, in another tweet.

"Pause for a moment to reflect upon what one Sean Hannity might do with news that an MSNBC personality had hidden a relationship with a Clinton attorney under criminal investigation", said one of Hannity's enemies at Media Matters.

Prosecutors have asked that the seized documents be reviewed to identify those covered by attorney-client privilege by a "filter team" of lawyers within their office, who would be walled off from the main prosecution team.

Hannity interjected that his relationship with Cohen was "minimal", something he had underscored in previous statements where he painted the interaction as being mostly focused on real estate and insisted he "never retained" Cohen "in the traditional sense".

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.

Israel on Highest Alert as Iran Threatens to Attack

"No disclosure, no disclaimer, not even a casual mention that, 'Oh yeah, this guy also represents me in some form or fashion, '" Cooper said.

The judge rejected Cohen's and Trump's request for a temporary restraining order because prosecutors agreed to hold off reviewing the records seized in last week's raids. They argued that the evidence should be protected by attorney-client privilege. "You could have said that you had asked him for advice or whatever".

Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels plans to attend the hearing, her lawyer Michael Avenatti, said on Sunday.

Daniels appeared in court with her attorney for the proceedings.

Daniels, in a separate civil case, is fighting a 2016 non-disclosure agreement arranged by Cohen in which she got $130,000 to stop her from discussing her claim she had sex with Trump a decade earlier, something Trump has denied.
