    did anyone post this:

    https://www.mediaite.com/online/conf...sia-sanctions/

    President Donald Trump halted additional economic sanctions against Russia Monday just a day after U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on CBS’ Face the Nation that they “will be coming.”

    “We are considering additional sanctions on Russia and a decision will be made in the near future,” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.

    The sanctions were meant to be punitive measures against Russia for propping up the Syrian government under Bashar al Assad, under whose leadership dozens of people were killed in a recent gas attack that many believe to have been perpetrated by Assad himself.

    Several people familiar with the plan told The Washington Post that Trump was “upset the sanctions were being officially rolled out because he was not yet comfortable executing them.”

    MSNBC is reporting that Hannity hired Cohen to investigate groups that were boycotting his show.


    Calling into MSNBC minutes after the bombshell was dropped, Vanity Fair‘s Gabriel Sherman — who has reported on the inside workings of Fox News for years — reported that Hannity hired Cohen last year following Bill O’Reilly‘s ouster from Fox News in the wake of a severe ad boycott.

    Noting that Hannity had come under pressure from left-wing groups — Media Matters, for one, targeted Hannity’s advertisers over the Seth Rich story — Sherman said he was told that Hannity “got paranoid” and hired Cohen to look into those groups.

    Alan Dershowitz just told Sean Hannity on air that he should have disclosed Michael Cohen was his lawyer when he defended him on his show.

    I guess that's the last time he'll be a contributor on Fox then.

    So to the shock and amazement of all, Cohen and Trump appear to be full of shit in their arguments regarding the FBI raid. Weird, right?

    https://www.thedailybeast.com/judge-...scited-the-law

    President Donald Trump and his longtime attorney Michael Cohen both lost a court challenge related to the FBI’s seizure of Cohen’s documents they both claim are protected by attorney-client privilege.

    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.
    There's more, so much more.

    “It’s not that you’re not good people,” Wood told Cohen’s attorneys on Monday afternoon, near the end of the two-hour proceeding. “It’s that you’ve miscited the law.”
    “I have faith in the Southern District U.S. Attorney’s office that their integrity is unimpeachable,” Judge Wood said. “I think that a taint team is a viable option.”
    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.

    “Cohen has more attorneys than he has clients,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas McKay quipped.
    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.

    One last gem

    here were audible gasps and one shout of “holy shit” when Hannity’s name was revealed on the courtroom. I ran outside. I’ve emailed Hannity and he has yet to respond.
    This season is killing me

    these idiots are so careless. How hard is it to find a different lawyer? Or maybe that's the point. It gave Hannity a boner to know he had the same lawyer as POTUS

    Or he's got some greasy shit to hide and needed a fixer. It takes a special kind of scumbag lawyer to be willing to cover up crimes, etc.

    Sometimes you don't need a Criminal lawyer, you need a criminal Lawyer.

    You're most probably right.

    Everyone will assume some type of sex scandal since that's the common denominator among Cohen's other two clients.

    Apparently Hannity's afternoon radio show was a treat today, the breakdown courtesy of a reddit thread

    - Aired (without Hannity intro'ing) Comey interview clips and music for the first 10 minutes
    - Came on air after 10 minutes and said that they'll continue the Comey interview until he decided "whether to say something"
    - Comes on air approx 35 minutes later "I.am.on.the.air.....I wish everyone would stop calling me"
    - Then denied that Cohen represented him
    - Spent the rest of his show ranting about the media

    I doubt they'll show that clip on their website. Last week Dershowitz agreed with Hannity on something and it was shown everywhere by them.
    Dershowitz somehow got Von Bulow off on an appeal. He's no dummy.

    Yeah Hannity looked really pissed off that Dershowitz had the nerve to say that.

    probably right, he claims it was about real estate, maybe he felt up a realtor at an open house as he thought real estate porn was real
