U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood of the Southern District of New York adopted Friday the special master's recommendation on what is and isn't privileged among the material seized by the government from President Donald Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen's home and offices back in April.
And there's this:
A judge outlined exactly what qualifies as privileged in the Michael Cohen case -- and almost nothing involves Cohen's work for his clients
US District Judge Kimba Wood laid out what from the first batch of President Donald Trump's longtime lawyer Michael Cohen's reviewed documents was covered by attorney-client privilege.
In Wood's Friday filing, 153 of the 161 documents labeled as privileged -- and therefore could not be used in a potential prosecution of Cohen -- involved Cohen consulting with attorneys.
Just eight documents involved Cohen in direct consultation with one of his clients.
After Cohen's offices were raided in April, Trump fumed online, suggesting it was a violation of attorney-client privilege to raid his lawyer's office. But, at least so far, almost none of the documents have proven to fall under those protections.
Michael Cohen appears to have been doing very little actual legal work.
