A New York federal judge says she is appointing a former Manhattan federal judge to help determine what materials seized in raids on the home and office of President Donald Trump’s private attorney are protected by attorney-client privilege.

Judge Kimba Wood said Thursday at a hearing that Barbara Jones has the right amount of experience to handle the study of materials seized in the April 9 raids that targeted attorney Michael Cohen.

Lol! Surprised she didn’t appoint Chelsea Clinton or Eric Holder as “fair and balanced” as she has been so far...

The behavior of the judicial branch of government has become less about law and more about political patronage ever since the Clinton era and on meth laced steroids since Obama era.

They don't even pretend to be about laws anymore.

Eric Holder? Keith Ellison? Or another “impartial, highly respected” figure?

On the recommendation of Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Jones was nominated to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by President Bill Clinton on October 18, 1995 to a seat vacated by Kenneth Conboy. She was confirmed by the United States Senate on December 22, 1995, and received commission on December 26, 1995.

HAHAHAHAHAHA

The fix is in for sure - she will nosy around for white collar & financial fraud. Note this paragraph on Wikipedia:

"On the recommendation of Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Jones was nominated to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York by President Bill Clinton on October 18, 1995 to a seat vacated by Kenneth Conboy. She was confirmed by the United States Senate on December 22, 1995, and received commission on December 26, 1995. Jones took senior status on December 31, 2012, and subsequently retired from the court on January 4, 2013 to go into private practice. She now works on white collar and financial fraud cases as a partner in the New York office of Bracewell LLP.

They do this after everything has been scanned and photocopied. How convenient.

I think that is what the "Special Master" puts you on when you do a panty raid.

I think they should call the appointee: Masterdon, but they might get him confused with someone else...
