Judge Kimba Woods: Out of Control

Judge Kimba Woods, infamous for sentencing Michael Milken to prison, is overseeing the questions surrounding the documents and other materials seized by the FBI from the house, office and hotel room of Donald Trump's attorney Michael Cohen. She has ordered that the name of Cohen's third client, contained in documents, be revealed.

It turns out that Cohen's client, besides Trump and multi-millionaire  Elliot Broidy, is FOX television host Sean Hannity. There is absolutely no indication that Hannity is involved in any Cohen related criminal activity, thus it is absolutely bizarre that Woods ordered his name be revealed.

Just what legal purpose does it serve to reveal the clients of an attorney when such clients have nothing to do with a criminal matter at hand?

What is the legal basis? Answer: None.

If it is later shown that Cohen and Hannity colluded in an illegal fashion, then his name should be revealed but not before.

This is the quality of the judge sitting as a senior judge on the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

  1. Judge Woods gave Mr Cohen's lawyer the choice of revealing the name publicly or of giving her the name in a sealed envelope. For some reason,Mr Cohen's lawyer choose the former. It seems that Mr Cohen, an incompetent lawyer from a 4th rate law school, has chosen an equally incompetent lawyer as his barrister.
