Fruman Demands Parnas Take Back Docs From Congress | Talking Points Memo

Lev Parnas’ longtime associate wants him to take back documents supplied to Congress, accusing the South Florida businessman of potentially breaking attorney-client privilege.


This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://talkingpointsmemo.com/?p=1287494

“Mr. Parnas did not, and does not, have any authority to waive Mr. Fruman’s privilege, or otherwise disclose privileged communications belonging to Mr. Fruman,”

If Parnas has them, they aren’t privileged communications, unless he got them illegally somehow.

Looks like someone is still on team, hoping to get a pardon.

What privilege ? Their is no privilege to hide a conspiracy to defraud the United States. Fruman should just shut up.

Here’s a clue: If there’s a document that contains content protected by attorney-client privilege and it’s lawfully in possession of a third party, then it’s not protected by attorney-client privilege.

I worked with a person who did the classic “reply all” to an email from the boss, basically trashing everything he’d just said. Three minutes later she sent an email saying, “… would like to withdraw this email.” About 10 minutes after that she was packing a box with all her personal effects.

I still check the address line before I hit send on everything.

No idea what this means, but it didn’t take you any time to come up with it, so props for that.
