A Modern Mafioso

- by Michael Daly, The Daily Beast

Michael Cohen May Learn the Hard Way That There’s No Such Thing As Consigliere-Client Privilege.

While Cohen was with friends puffing cigars uptown, his lawyer was in court as the feds laid out “the result of a months-long investigation into Cohen” and his “crimes,” plural.

Before he became President Trump's self-styled consigliere, Michael Cohen made a fortune in the taxi business.

So, he certainly had the means and the ability to have hopped a cab down to Manhattan federal court on Friday morning to answer a judge’s queries regarding what appeared to be Trumpian exaggerations.

Instead, Cohen remained uptown, chatting with the president on the phone and lounging with friends in the springtime sun outside his luxury Manhattan hotel. He did this even though the prosecution had filed papers attesting that it had established probable cause to believe he had committed multiple federal crimes.

The president’s lawyer left his own lawyer, Todd Harrison, to explain to a dubious Judge Kimba Wood how he figured that the FBI had seized “thousands, if not millions” of documents from “multiple clients” when it executed search warrants at Cohen’s home, office, hotel room and safety deposit box last Monday.

Harrison made that claim while seeking a temporary restraining order to get prosecutors to hold off on examining the materials the FBI had seized. The suggestion was that the sheer volume of the material and the number of cases they involved placed attorney-client privilege in jeopardy.

Unless, Cohen’s lawyers said, they had a hand in deciding which materials should be excluded.

Sure.

In their response papers, the prosecutors countered, “Cohen is not a criminal defense attorney… and is being investigated for criminal conduct that largely centers on his personal business dealings. Based on information gathered in the investigation to date… Cohen has exceedingly few clients and a low volume of potentially privileged communications."

The prosecutors added, “Cohen has told at least one witness that he has only [one] client – President Trump.”
