Lawyers do pro-bono work all the time. Payment isn't required.

No my evidence is that trump appointees wouldn’t tell his FBI agents to raid Cohen unless the evidence was good..

That's not evidence; that's supposition.


On its face value it looks bad, and trump lost atleast a percent of his supporters bombing Syria.. so there is less and less reasons for the gop to protect him.

And that would be wishful thinking...

This is corruption.


No its not.

Hannity was not a client. Cohen was never retained by Hannity and Hannity never received any bills. He is friends with Cohen and asked his opinion on some issues over the years.

So you're saying that Cohen has knowingly lied to a judge?


It looks like it yes.

How do you know they seized records that weren't on the warrant?



In the motion made by Cohens lawyers and the response by the government that was like 30 pages long.

Trump-appointed US attorney recused from Michael Cohen investigation

Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, is recused from the Michael Cohen investigation, ABC News has learned.

Berman was not involved in the decision to raid Cohen's office because of the recusal, two sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.

The recusal was approved by senior Justice Department officials who report to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the sources said. Rosenstein himself was notified of the recusal after the decision was made.

The raid of Cohen's office was handled by others in the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York and approved by a federal judge.

Berman is a Trump appointee with ties to Rudy Giuliani who donated money to the 2016 Trump campaign, and is a longtime Trump ally and supporter.

The U.S. Attorney's office declined to comment.

FBI agents were dispatched early Monday morning by the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York to three locations tied to Cohen – his home, his office in Rockefeller Center and a hotel he was staying at on New York’s East Side.

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team had passed information on to the Department of Justice, which referred the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s Office New York, but the raids and investigation are separate from the ongoing investigation into Russia meddling during the 2016 election.

Agents took personal and financial records dating back as far as 2013, sources tell ABC News.

Sources say the search was for evidence of possible bank and wire fraud in addition to possible campaign finance violations. Agents also took documents related Cohen’s dealings with adult film star Stormy Daniels just weeks before the 2016 election, according to multiple sources. Cohen’s personal electronic devices were also seized in Monday’s raid.


Possible Campaign finance violations.. Thats actually funny considering the FEC just got sued today over Hillary Clintons 83 million dollar fraud for her election. Dolling out money to state party's only to have those state party's donate the money back to Clinton within 24 hours

What case for Cohen? That Hannity is his client? How does that help Cohen?

It just means that any material concerning Hannity may be protected. Of course, Hannity insists he isn't a client of Cohen's so...

and Cohen could argue he was working pro bono so never charge Hannity for his legal advice.

Either way Hannity has nothing to do with the situation.

No place on the planet or employee of the administration is safe.

Sounds like something one might hear in a gangster movie... are you insinuating that anyone surrounding Trump will be hunted down and destroyed no matter who they are or what they might have or not have done?

"You disrespected the Family, Guido... you know I can't let that slide. Now my boys are coming after you... you, your friends, your family, your business partners... there's nowhere to hide, Guido."

Does anyone else see that as kinda scary?

Exactly. But it's pretty damned funny.

Yeah. But Cohen is and what he may have done. And since trump is pretty much his only client...well... you think about it.
Cohen's business practices are under a microscope and the judge has denied Cohen's request for a restraining order for materials seized.
Now I guess a third party decides? I'm not really sure. It's kind of new territory.

Trump is not his only Client. He does have a client who resides in Chicago if I remember correctly. Finance chair of the RNC maybe?

It is. I answered Silly's question and speculated when she pointed out pro bono. You asked how it would help[ Cohen. I explained it and you responded with so what.

If you didnt care then dont ask a question and get pissy when you get an answer.

Really ? TV under the control of the president who tweets out teasers and trailers like a carnival barker? Then that TV show tears down every federal agency that has a hand in investigating trump. Becomes state TV blaring out the rhetoric to destroy those agencies.
I can't believe the blindness. But what ever....

You didn't answer. How does working pro-bono for Hannity (who, God knows, can't afford a good attorney), help Cohen's case?
