    The issue Trump may run into is that if you and your lawyer are involved in criminal activity (say campaign finance law violation) then your communications on that are not privileged. That would go for any communication that falls into the crime-fraud exception. The act of committing or covering up a crime with the aid of a lawyer is not protected by priviledge.

    This is a simple concept covered in law school. If they are hoping any info culled from the Cohen case is going to be deemed "privileged", they're fucked. They are not getting around it and there are too many great legal minds/professionals prosecuting these cases to worry about rookie mistakes.

    The President of the United States was implicated by a direct witness (under oath in a federal court) in at least one Federal felony, seemingly more. Breathtaking. The governmentmental Branch in charge of oversight needs to prepare to begin hearings in the People's House.

    Duncan Hunter was also indicted on fraud and campaign finance violations. Read the indictment and see how this scumbag and his wife misused funds. I was somewhat entertained with the part that describes the 14K family trip to Italy that they tried to justify by visiting a Naval base. When the base commander was unable to accommodate the one day they set aside to visit, Duncan wrote, "Tell the Navy to Fuck themselves". That was only slightly more entertaining then telling his wife to get him new shorts at the Golf course, therefore they can call the expense, Golfballs for "Wounded Warrior" Vets. It is an endless laugh-out-loud list.

    Duncan Hunter was Trump's second public supporter in Congress. His first, Chris Collins, was also just indicted on securities fraud, wire fraud, insider trading and lying to the FBI.

    We are drowning in the swamp. It is deeper and dirtier then ever.

    No, we're just hearing more about it. "No man can get rich in politics unless he’s a crook!" – President Harry Truman
