Prosecutors use Trump's comments to claim Cohen docs 'unlikely to contain' much privileged info

Federal prosecutors in New York argued on Thursday that public statements by President Trump and Fox News host Sean Hannity signal that materials seized from Michael Cohen are unlikely to contain large amounts of privileged information.

The filing came hours after Trump called into “Fox & Friends” for an interview, in which he claimed that Cohen, one of his longtime associates and confidants, performed only “a tiny, tiny little fraction” of his legal work.

Hannity, who was named earlier this month as one of Cohen’s other clients, has said that he never retained the attorney’s legal services and that their discussions focused on real estate. 

“These statements by two of Cohen’s three identified clients suggest that the seized materials are unlikely to contain voluminous privileged documents, further supporting the importance of efficiency here,” Robert Khuzami, the deputy U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, wrote in a letter to U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood

    Trump just can’t keep his mouth shut. Any lawyer that is working for him must want to end their careers. He keeps shooting himself in the foot .
