But during the campaign, the majority of the over and over crises was coming from his own mouth. 

He was a racist, sexist, lying cheating, thief.  All on the basis of his own statements.


An important qualifier.

All on the basis of the media's interpretations of his own statements.

That's important because Trump's supporters were literally hearing something different from the media's reporting about what Trump was saying.  And they were listening directly to Trump so it was exceedingly difficult for the media's interpretations to drown it out.

There's no way to interpret or rationalize Sean Hannity as NOT being one of Cohen's clients.  That connection is solid in people's minds already.

I do concede a point you're making. 

By itself it's meaningless.  It's simply another example of confirmation bias for people to add to their already mountainous piles.  By itself, the fact that Sean Hannity was a client of a friend of his's attorney as well shouldn't be all that earth shattering.  Not like it's really that unusual.  It just looks bad because people want it to.  (And because Cohen is supposedly a crook)

But it depends on what the criminal charges were against Cohen, and what the evidence was that led to the unusual step of getting a search warrant for a lawyer's office.  Because if they're something that can be used to tar Hannity too ... aye karumbah.

If they're something as blase' as paying off a porn star and making the case it's an illegal campaign contribution.  Well.  /yawn.

And despite my thinking this is the first time Trump has demonstrated a weakness that makes him vulnerable to losing the 2020 election, realistically all it really does is lower the bar a bit for whatever Democratic candidate they put forward.  The Democrats can still totally make up for this perceived weakness of Trump's by completely misreading the electorate again and putting forward a candidate that espouses all the right (wrong?) ideas and fires up Trump's base.

That is true, but I just don't think it makes that much of a difference.  He was running on his own trail in the primary and it went the same way.


Well he had 16 other campers ...

Hannity as a fellow client, sure, that appears to be concrete fact that cannot be interpreted any different.  But what it means or whether it matters certainly can.

Like I said, we will have to wait and see.  But "Hannity is also a client" does very little.

I guess I didn't get my point across within the analogy.

My point was that in the primary, he was not on the same trail as the other "campers".  He was doing things that were unheard of.

There was a bear chasing him and another bear chasing them.  He never got caught by his bear.  Rubio and Kasich outran the other campers, but eventually both got eaten together.

Interesting ...   Grin


Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, once represented Fox News’ Sean Hannity, a court hearing revealed Monday.

Cohen’s lawyers revealed the identity of the previously unnamed client in a courtroom in New York after the judge said he must.

    Michael Cohen’s previously unnamed third client is SEAN HANNITY.
    — erica orden (@eorden) April 16, 2018

In a court filing Monday morning, Cohen’s lawyers argued that Cohen should not be required to identify his clients. Cohen had at least 10 clients between 2017 and 2018, Reuters reported, and he did “traditional legal tasks” for three of them, including Trump, former Republican National Committee official Elliott Broidy, and a third who asked not to be named.

No..  Cohen's lawyer ratted him out ..


In a legal filing before the hearing on Monday, Mr. Cohen said that, since 2017, he had worked as a lawyer for 10 clients, seven of whom he served by providing “strategic advice and business consulting.” The other three comprised Mr. Trump, the Republican fund-raiser Elliott Broidy and a third person who went unnamed.

The mystery was solved when Kimba M. Wood, a judge for the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, ordered that Mr. Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, disclose the name of the client in question — who turned out to be Mr. Hannity.
