"Corrections and clarifications: An earlier version has been corrected to reflect that Joanna Hendon represents Donald Trump.
WASHINGTON — One of President Trump’s lawyers, Joanna Hendon, filed papers late Sunday asking a federal judge to block prosecutors from studying material seized by the FBI in a raid until Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, and the president have both had a chance to review those materials and argue which are subject to attorney-client privilege.
“Fairness and justice – as well as the appearance of fairness and justice – require that, before they are turned over to the Investigative Team, the seized materials relating to the President must be reviewed by the only person who is truly motivated to ensure that the privilege is properly invoked and applied: the privilege-holder himself, the President,” Hendon wrote.
On Friday, lawyers for Cohen appeared in federal court in New York asking that they, not the Department of Justice, be given a first crack at reviewing the seized evidence to see if it was relevant to the investigation or could be forwarded to criminal investigators without jeopardizing attorney-client privilege.”*

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
I mean the audacity of these people is too much to handle here. They think they're above the law. They think they're royalty and we're just peasants. They think that the law only applies to us, not to them. This is disgusting. I can't wait till Trump is in prison for all the crimes he's committed over the years. Hopefully it comes after 2018, but I can wait till 2020 if I have to. I just want to see justice for ALL, not just for the 99%.
That raid was just to get information to leak to the press so the Dems win the election. It's not Russia we have to worry about changing the elections. It's the DOJ. First thing came out was Sean Hannity was a so called client and all the newspapers made a huge deal of it. What does that have to do with anything? It was just what we will be seeing as time goes on. I'm sure they'll save some juicy ones for the Trump re-election campaign. After that, a couple slaps on the wrist because they never had anything on this Russia thing and never will.
Actually, since our President is a 5 year old, I think Trump's request to "see" the evidence is perfectly reasonable. You allow him into the evidence locker, and every time he goes to grab something you slap his hand and say "you see with your eyes"
I will never believe that Trump is guilty of anything wrong even if he is. He is our owner . . I mean master . . . I mean ruler . . . I mean president. It's hard to tell the difference since he grabbed the American voter by the pussy last year.
Any evidence protected by attorney-client privilege will be leaked out to the media. Basically, indictment by public opinion.
Now on another note, let's be clear..... Why would you not have your lawyers file a brief so they can review the evidence in parallel with investigators and possibly the prosecution? A closed mouth doesn't get fed. It's smart for these lawyers to fight back. They are aware most of these requests are ridiculous, but they only want a few of these requests approved, such as the ability to review the evidence "before" an official report is given to a grand jury. Their end game is to not pick and choose the evidence for a possible prosecution, but ascertain what may be used as evidence against their client before any interviews or depositions are arranged.
Has Trump ever said teachers sexually abusing their students is not a big deal becsuse CENK did on video.anyone who thinks it's okay for teachers to use the great power they have over the kids they're trusted with to exploit students sexually should be fired.# Don'tletcenkbabysit
This is the America Republicans wanted. Pretty sure their voting standards go by how corrupt their bought politician is. The more corrupt the better. Because republicans like destroying America. They succeeded. Obama saved us once, he will save us when Trump is impeached
Oh little donnie, you are worried aren’t you? The big boys are playing hardball and they are going to hang your fat butt! Maybe take a day off from fux and friends and watch an episode of Law and Order. It could help you understand how investigations work. If that fails maybe one of your grandchildren could draw you a little picture.
Man its amazing how cenks mind is skewed and biased regarding race, he is so clouded by the idea of white privilege and that everyone actually thinks how he does and how he believes they think. It is so far from reality it is amazing, he fully lives in this fantasy land, seeing it before your eyes is quite the sight.
Didn't Hillary Clinton decide what she wanted to hand over for evidence? Can anyone say 2 tier justice 😂...they will try ANYTHING! To include a porn star hahaha what's next when this leads to nothing🤔😚
If Trump gets taken out of office for this will the rest of his team go away as well? Because I'm more worried about Pence than Trump. Trump is a nincompoop whereas Pence seems at least competently evil.
If the Feds took EVERY BIT OF PAPER in Cohen's office and home, wouldn't that include papers regarding his other two illustrious clients? Is that what they call Evidence? i.e. everything but the kitchen sink? In that case wouldn't that mean there was stuff separately pertaining to the other two and having nothing to do with Trump? Which should be filtered out. But not by Trump's lawyers.
I just hope Cohen has enough of a brain to tell all so he can get to see his family grow up rather than going to prison for the man that threw him under the bus weeks ago, which is what brought Cohen to this situation in the first place....trying to protect a Criminal.....Trump & Hannity.
Mueller really caught the weasel (Trump) napping, no one saw it coming where Cohen would be targeted, and it looks like they it the jackpot regarding evidence, in fact they might have to convert one of Trumps hotels into a prison to accommodate them all.
welcome to the Twilight Zone we are all going down the rabbit hole into madness please do not drink the Kool-Aid try to keep your brain intact while the country is torn apart buy a billionaire slumlord
After getting tired of arguing with staunch right wing conservative supporters I figured might as well wait and watch to see how he goes down in flames to some stupid junk all by his own self. I however didn't expect it to be with a pornstar but hey its pretty appropriate considering. She's the hero we didn't want but the one we needed. (and deserved)
And not a single evidence of meddleing by the russians in the election! Mueller is going after Trump with everything he can find! A which Hunt! If they can do it to Trump, dont cry when they do it to you! You had a chance to speak up!
Boo hoo ! Trump is stupid and his so call "lawyers" are worst! Lol Trump King wants to be judge, jury, and prosecutor! Off with their heads!!! Give be a break! I hope they lock Cohen in jail and throw away the key!!!
I can see the judge now:
Trump & Cohen lawyer: Your honor I think we should go through the evidence an decide what is fair to the case before the independent taint team looks at it. Then we can give the proper evidence to the taint team to look over.
Judge: Do I look like an idiot to you?
