    Cohen Handed a WIN Today in Court

    Amid all the left-frothing, and the Blowjob Queen and Mouthanetti's desperate camera "bombing", I see that the usual twits completely missed the fact that COHEN HANDED THE PROSECUTION ITS ASS TODAY. The only reason the judge (Judge Kimba Wood) did NOT issue a restraining order against the prosecution, preventing it form examining Cohen's records seized in the Gestapo raid, is that she ORDERED EVERY DOCUMENT ETC. to be COPPIED, and GIVEN TO COHEN, for him to examine, and determine what he believes is protected by attorney/client privilege, which he will then present to the court for exclusion.

    All this BEFORE the Gestapo is allowed to examine a SYLLABLE of it.

    IOW....EXACTLY what he was seeking.



    Link forthcoming...this is from earlier , before her final ruling today, and outlines the options before her ...(Judge Kimba Wood.)


    Cohen Handed a WIN Today in Court







    After an afternoon of pitched arguments over who should have the right to vet documents seized from President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, a federal judge in New York delayed a decision on whether to appoint an impartial “special master” to conduct the review.


    U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said that federal authorities who seized documents from the lawyer, Michael Cohen, would provide copies to Cohen’s team. A lawyer for Cohen said they could provide a list of proposed special masters by Tuesday. The government will also provide names.

    privilege log is a document that gives information about evidence withheld on the basis of the attorney-client privilege, typically including the type of communication -- whether a letter, email or notes of a phone call -- along with the date and parties to the communication.
    Trump’s lawyer, Hendon, acknowledged that privilege logs are “a real pain for everybody” but said they’re necessary to safeguard the privilege.
    She argued that the attorney-client privilege has been recognized for more than 400 years and is one of the oldest legal privileges under common law. “It is a beacon to the world and to history,” she said. “Without it no client could speak freely with counsel, and no attorney could properly serve the client.”


    The judge asked how long it would take for everything that was seized to be organized for review -- and how long Hendon’s client, the president, would have to devote to the task. McKay said that while some of the devices the FBI seized will need to be decrypted, most of the evidence could be posted “in a week or two.”
    The government claims that for any communications between Cohen and Trump or another client, a so-called taint team will consult with lawyers for Cohen and Trump and try to reach agreement on whether particular documents are protected. Disputes will be brought to the court to determine the issue before the team investigating the case would have access to the documents.
    McKay said that without a taint team, it could take a very long time for the defense to review the documents. He noted that in the Lynn Stewart case, there were just a few boxes and it took more than a year to complete the review.

    Trump lawyer Hendon said she couldn’t estimate how long it would take to review the material until they know what has been seized. (Bob Van Voris and David Voreacos).

    Cohen’s lawyers asked Wood to let them review the seized material first or, as a fallback, appoint a neutral special master to review evidence seized from Cohen. Trump’s lawyers didn’t support a special master.
    “Mr. Cohen might have a legal degree, but this investigation and the search is largely focused on his private business dealings and his private financial dealings,” McKay said (David Voreacos and Chris Dolmetsch)


    Cohen is asking for the review to be conducted by a court-appointed attorney. Trump will be represented by his own lawyer, Joanna Hendon, who has requested that the president be given a chance to review the seized materials, which includes more than a dozen electronic devices.



    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...s-in-n-y-court




    And AFTER THAT, she ruled that EVERYTHING TAKEN, must be provided to Cohen, and the President's lawyers, BEFORE the government can start playing "Create a Crime"....again.

    As corrupt as Mueller's team is, though, I suspect he has people already going through it.

    Also, Hannity was named as a Cohen client.
    It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

    I never thought I would see the amount of misinformation spread in the US like Baghdad Bob did in Iraq. You cons are pathetic.

    Judge Slows U.S. Review of Trump Lawyer’s Records: Cohen Update

    A privilege log is a document that gives information about evidence withheld on the basis of the attorney-client privilege, typically including the type of communication -- whether a letter, email or notes of a phone call -- along with the date and parties to the communication.
    Trump’s lawyer, Hendon, acknowledged that privilege logs are “a real pain for everybody” but said they’re necessary to safeguard the privilege.
    She argued that the attorney-client privilege has been recognized for more than 400 years and is one of the oldest legal privileges under common law. “It is a beacon to the world and to history,” she said. “Without it no client could speak freely with counsel, and no attorney could properly serve the client.”


    The judge asked how long it would take for everything that was seized to be organized for review -- and how long Hendon’s client, the president, would have to devote to the task. McKay said that while some of the devices the FBI seized will need to be decrypted, most of the evidence could be posted “in a week or two.”

    The government claims that for any communications between Cohen and Trump or another client, a so-called taint team will consult with lawyers for Cohen and Trump and try to reach agreement on whether particular documents are protected.


    "U.S. District Judge Kimbra Wood said that she had faith in the Justice Department's so-called "taint team" to isolate materials protected by attorney-client privilege, but added that she would consider allowing a neutral third party requested by Cohen to weigh in.

    On Monday, Wood rejected Hendon's request for a temporary restraining order on the grounds that it was too early for such an objection."



    All Wood did was deny the restraining order as UNNECESSARY AT THIS TIME. The records wil be COPIED AND TURNED OVER to Cohen and Trump's other lawyer, Herndon, BEFORE anything else is done.

    PRECISELY what he was after.


    "Brooke Singman" should have waited for more than just the ruling on the restraining order, clearly.

    Let me get this straight....you created a thread that said Cohen was handed a win, yet the only reason he was there today was denied in a ruling. Are you really that daft?

    FFS.

    "Let me get this straight"...you cannot grasp the actual crux of her ruling?
    Apparently , reading comprehension isn't your strong suit.
    The RECORDS have to COPIED, and HANDED OVER to Cohen and Herndon, for examination ,to determine what is, and is not PROTECTED, before the case can proceed. Got that?


    IOW exactly what the restraining order would have done, which the judge, for OBVIOUS REASONS, said "was not necessary at this time".

    The FOXNEWS journalist was too busy trying to trumpet the Blowjob Queen "speaking out" to notice the net affect of the entire ruling...just like you.
