who referred the case to the ny feds?
Mueller, I think.


they did what they were told
They followed Mueller's recommendation, yes. Apparently Mueller had reason to suspect Cohen of criminal activity. Apparently there was sufficient probable cause for a warrant to be issued and materials gathered.

I don't know if that's a factual statement. Upon what do you base it?

But what's your point?

Maybe. Maybe not. I don't know. Is there something which prevents him from making such a referral if it also falls within the scope of his investigation?


and trumps priviledge stands
For items in which Cohen was acting as Trump's attorney, yes.

Unless there is evidence which implicates Trump in those "random crimes." Maybe there is, maybe there isn't.

It doesnt exactly work that way. The government has to have evidence of a crime (IE probable cause) to obtain a warrant. You cant just sift thru documents in hopes of finding evidence of a crime. Search warrants have to be specific and the bar gets higher when its a lawyer.

Trumps privilege stands. That is reinforced by the fact Trump is not involved with what is going on with Cohen. Since Trump is not involved his documents are protected since they have no bearing on the case against Cohen.

Sorry no. Trump is claiming that Cohen is not his lawyer, except for a few minor things. So no Attorney-Client Privilege.

Mueller and Rosenstein stated Trump has nothing to do / no link to Cohens case.


When did they make any statements? I haven't seen Mueller make a statement at all and the last statement from Rosenstein told us that trump is a subject of the investigation.

Important to note.
Hannity says Cohen did no legal work for him. And that guy from the RNC Broidy is it? He only had one matter settled by Cohen which means that the BULK of the evidence seized will pertain to donald trump... And only donald trump.

That was simply trump making Cohen the covfefe boy. He was distancing himself like he has with every indictment or revelation or discovery that's been released. Never heard of him. He was nobody. Served the coffee. Was a minor clerk. Was with us a very short time. Wasn't part of the organization. Was not paid. We've heard it all before. Over and over.
Seems some folks just never catch on.

Some folks are under the impression that every conversation trump had with Cohen was privileged. Or that every conversation someone has with their lawyer is privileged.
That's an error.

They are grasping tight to the statement that trump wasn't a target. They completely ignore that the president is a SUBJECT of the investigation. Subject to change at a moment's notice. Like being interviewed by Muellers team.
