Bill Clinton’s Attorney General Nominee Violated Hannity’s Attorney-Client Privilege

Remind me of what exactly Michael Cohen’s work for Sean Hannity might have to do with Russian collusion? Zero. Nothing. Not a damn thing.

But Clinton and Obama political allies are using their old opposition research lie to conduct a free-floating witch hunt against any and all Trump supporters. And so we have this ridiculous police state farce.

Cohen had asked a federal judge for a temporary restraining order to stop federal prosecutors in Manhattan from viewing the information seized by the FBI until an independent third party, called a “special master,” be allowed to sort out what is protected by attorney-client privilege.

Similarly, Trump’s own legal representation in this case, Joanna Hendon, filed a letter on Sunday night asking the judge to give Cohen’s team first-access to the material.

U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood denied the requests and ruled that prosecutors will get first access to the information, followed by Cohen’s defense team ten days later. Wood noted that she has not yet decided whether she will appoint a special master in the case at all.

On Friday, Judge Wood asked Cohen’s attorneys how they could argue that “thousands” of seized documents could be privileged while they refused to provide a list of Cohen’s clients to the court.

Those clients, it has now been revealed, include Trump, Republican fundraiser Elliot Broidy, and Fox News host Sean Hannity, who had asked not to be named. Cohen’s team claimed in the Monday filing that Hannity’s identity was protected under attorney-client privilege, but the U.S. Attorney’s office disagreed, alleging that Cohen’s team was simply employing a delaying tactic.

Guess whom Kimba sided with?

 

Cohen attorney Steve Ryan argued that the third client—Hannity—is a “publicly prominent individual,” who did not want his name released.

“I’m simply trying to protect the privacy of that individual,” he added.

After much discussion, Wood ruled that the name must be publicly disclosed immediately.

“The client’s name is Sean Hannity,” replied Todd Harrison, Cohen’s attorney. The room erupted in laughter.

Of course it must.

Not only will Obama eligibility lies be exposed, so will the media who protected him

CFP

By Dr. Laurie Roth

Like most of you,  I realize you can’t agree with every TV or radio talk show host on every issue.  However,  we see the push and necessity to support our own and lift the banner of conservative common sense high, especially with this radical regime in the White House.

As a national radio talk show host therothshow.com ,  I realize all too much the sound bite theatre,  ratings pressure and competition,  even jealousy among radio and TV hosts.  I am a growing host and have done national radio and TV for years…I understand ego.  At the very least hosts want to keep their jobs, grow big and make lots of money during their careers.  With all that in mind I find it growingly unforgivable that who I would expect to be leaders in my field,  media and entertainment, continue to marginalize,  minimize and insult those daring to question Barack Obama’s eligibility.

Not all the big hosts have thrown the ‘questioning’ crowd under the bus including Sean Hannity,  Rush Limbaugh and Lou Dobbs.  I have heard them on various occasions question Obama’s eligibility.  Rush even has called Obama an imposter.  Yet it is still far from enough pressure and depth.

Rino Rampage

CFP

Quick, pass the tranquilizer darts, the RINOs are spooked.  Karl Rove stomped and pawed the ground in a menacing way with Sean Hannity after Christine O’Donnell’s primary win in Delaware.  RINO hunting season is in full swing.

The RINOs are prepared to defend their long held turf by way of eating their own.  There are, we’re told, issues about O’Donnell’s past about which we are to be concerned.

NOW they’re worried about a candidate’s past?  Barack Obama has a far more troubling past than O’Donnell’s real or imagined one and the Republican let that go with nary a snort.

O’Donnell won.  In fact, she won by a healthy margin.  You know, will of the people and all that.  This RINO versus conservative turf battle is actually healthy.  Survival requires periodically thinning the herd.

Michelle Bachmann suggest Nancy Pelosi should be Impeached

News Busters

The latest maneuvering by congressional Democrats to make their brand of health care reform a reality has a lot of Washington, D.C. insiders scratching their heads and unable to forecast what is around the bend when it comes to this legislation.

But have the media completely dropped the ball and that is allowing those in power to circumvent constitutional process? According to Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., they have. She had some harsh words for the fourth estate on conservative talker Sean Hannity’s March 16 radio show. (h/t Kevin Eder)

“Well yeah and the other thing is treason media,” Bachmann said. “Where is the mainstream media in all of this not telling this story? This is a compelling story – that the Speaker of the House would even consider having us pass a bill that no one votes on?”

According to Bachmann, this is such an egregious maneuver by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, to force through health care reform using the Slaughter Rule, as known as deem and pass, that it warrants her impeachment from the post.

“That should laugh her out of the House and there should be people that are calling for impeachment off of something like this,” Bachmann continued. “That’s how bad this is. I mean, trust me – Dennis Hastert could have never gotten away with this. President Bush never could have gotten away with it.”

But if anything, Bachmann contended this could be a teachable moment in civics for the country. She explained this is what happens when a one-party dominant rule occurs – an abuse of power and the trampling of the United States Constitution.

“And that’s why this is a very useful example to all of us about growing up and being serious and knowing how valuable and important our country is and the value of election,” Bachmann said. “That’s what we’ve learned about the value of this last election with one-party dominance and rule. And this is how they view our most precious, sacred document – the Constitution? They’re going to ignore it? No.”

Deep in the Heart of Texas

While listening to Sean Hannity on the radio the other day, a lady from the Dallas-Ft. Worth Area called in to let Sean know what she saw while driving.

In the Dallas -Ft. Worth Area there is a business called, Cornish-Burton Septic Service. Nothing special you say? Well under the company logo it reads, Carrying Political Promises.

Nice Job Guys and keep up the good work.
