    Cohen and tRump fail to block DOJ review of seized documents

    federal judge denied Trump's and Cohen's request to block the DOJ from reviewing documents seized by the FBI

    DOJ gets them first, then Cohen's team, then tRumps.

    Big loss for Trump and Cohen.

    I'm surprised that a liberal would think government seizing documents and being allowed to deny the accused access is a good thing. Is this another possible liberal hypocrisy?


    The funniest part is when this was reported by Fox News, @Safety called it "fake news".

    No need to...because she ALSO MADE THIS RULING:


    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.

    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. 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).




    This made the restraining order a moot point, as the JUDGE NOTED, saying that the order was "UNNECESSARY AT THIS TIME.

    They didn't deny them access, they denied them the chance to remove what they wanted not to be seen first. DOJ gets first look, then Cohen's folks, then tRump get whatever Cohen decides to forward to him.

    It’s a shame some things have to be explained simply because it deals with their messiah.
    Nobody is holding a gun to your head. If you don't like what I post, ignore me. I'll post what I want, when I want, and where I want, regardless of how you or anyone else feels about it.

    That's spin. They are being denied access.

    Are you happy there, wherever "there" is, since it's obvious you are here in reality with the rest of us?
