Following the hearing through Stephen Brown's tweets. So far it has been the prosecutor, McKay speaking. The best reported line so far: "There are three parties in this case. Only two of them have made public comments about the searches. Last Monday both Mr. Cohen and President Trump made inflammatory comments about this case. Our office has done no such thing." He goes on to say Trump and Cohen can't incite the media then "Turn around and cite that media attention as the basis for their requested relief."

An attorney representing the media arguing for transparency requested that the name of the third client by revealed. Attorney for Cohen pushed back. Judge apparently just said "I rule it must be disclosed now." Don't know what will happen if they still refuse.

Oh, my God, it totally is him. :shock:

I kid you not! Of course, we are not likely to learn what the actual "legal services" that Cohen provided, but I think it is reasonable to guess that they are similar to the services he supplied to his other two clients.

Less LOL, but no less surprising from an attorney point of view: Judge Wood, to Cohen's attorneys: "It’s not that you’re not good people. It’s that you’ve miscited the law, at times." Oh, snap!

Just wait; it'll turn out there's some sort of propaganda complex between the Trump administration, Russia, and Fox News.

It is feeling like that stage in a story when multiple plotlines converge, doesn't it? Then comes the climax and the denouement.

For some reason I couldn't get the spoiler link to show until I tried the 'quote' feature. HOLY COW. Karma is a tough mistress, ain't she? I don't think I would have been surprised if it had been Devin Nunes, but this makes sense too.

I wasn't being entirely serious, but yet, it does. If it were a story. However, I suspect in this case it will turn out that truth is stranger than fiction (if it hasn't already).

Now THIS (sadly) is reality TV. None of that fake stuff.

For some reason I thought it was DJT Jr.

Making sexual imbroglios go away seems to be part of Cohen's legal practice. I wonder what salacious fun is going to break loose regarding Hannity.

Yeah, I was sure it was Junior, too. Of all the speculation that I saw, not a single person mentioned Hannity.

I wonder how this might affect the Trump propaganda channel. The RNC has ramped up the smear campaign and Russian hackers are attacking business & home routers and ISP's. No connection at all, I suppose.

This is supposedly a real quote from Hannity's radio program today:

"I might have handed him 10 bucks, I definitely wanted attorney-client privilege on this, something like that" @seanhannity on his relationship with #MichaelCohen

Where's that "Sure, Jan" gif when I need it.

Can he say 'under the table' any more clearly?

Meanwhile, the judge largely ruled in favor of the justice department, though she hasn't ruled out appointing a special master down the line. But the U.S. attorney's office will get to review the material first, before providing copies to Cohen's lawyers. So far as I can tell she simply ignored the arguments made by Trump's attorney claiming they should get first crack at it.
