Sean Hannity wanted to claim attorney-client privilege while
simultaniously denying that he was a client of Cohen. That's strange,
There seems to be some speculation about the nature of the
engagement. Given that the other two clients of Cohen were using Cohen
for hush-money arrangements it would be quite natural to assume that
Hannity's pickle was pickle related also.
My theory is that it's something else entirely. Hannity's pickle is
related to campaign finance laws. I am of the belief that Hannity
actively worked with Cohen to coordinate his press coverage of
Trump. That puts him in the 'in-kind campaign contribution' category
that wasn't reported.
Further, it's been documented that he was actively DMing Assange of
Wikileaks fame. Just like Cohen was the "lawyer" who could claim the shield of
"attorney/client privilege", Hannity was the "journalist" who could
claim "press pass" in getting in touch with Assange.
