To clear a few things up:
You have attorney/client privilege even if technically you never hire the attorney. If you come in to see me and we discuss your case and you later decide to hire someone else, everything you said to me is still privileged.
So when Hannity says he has a privilege and he was never Cohen’s client, that is certainly possible.
I don’t believe a word of it, of course.
I mean, come on. Why would Cohen be trying so hard to keep his third client secret? And why would he name Hannity if he didn’t consider him a client — which meant he had paid him? And don’t we all think some of the files the FBI had would clearly show that?
Since Cohen is known as a “fixer” (think of Robert Duvall’s lawyer in “The Godfather” if that helps), my biggest concern now is wondering what in the world he was supposed to “fix” for Hannity?
Strap yourselves in; it’s going to be a fun ride.
