Judge Andrew Napolitano was just interviewed by Neil Cavuto on the subject of the Sean Hannity revelation today of him being a client of Michael Cohen.
Napolitano explains why this was brought up in court and why it matters:
You should really watch at least the first half of the clip, but essentially Cohen is making an argument that he is a legitimate attorney and thus deserves the the protections of attorney/client privilege. Which is why he brought up that he has two more clients (other than Trump).
But it sounds like from the revelations made by Hannity in the aftermath, that they really didn’t have a traditional attorney client relationship, which may end up hurting Cohen’s argument.
Also be sure and watch the clip to the end, where Napolitano warns that this new investigation could be far more troublesome for Trump that Mueller’s investigation.
