A little background on Peter Gleason - the lawyer seeking to seal Cohen records on Schneiderman

Ahem... from 2012 - the relevant time frame:


https://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/mar/22/peter-gleason-new-york-apartment

Looking relaxed in an open-neck shirt in his Elvis-inspired living room, Peter Gleason shows little concern over betting his $2.5m apartment on the word of an alleged New York madam.

But then again, nothing about the lawyer's involvement in the case of Scottish-born Anna Gristina the alleged mastermind of a high-end Manhattan prostitution ring has been conventional.

Even before opting to put up his well-heeled apartment for her bail, the 48-year-old played an intriguing role in Gristina's tale part lawyer, part crusader and, he has said, part saviour.

...

But intrigue continues to swirl over possible names in Gristina's little black book, if such a thing ever existed. If Gleason is aware of such a directory much sought after by New York's district attorney, it has been reported he is keeping it to himself. "I never asked her if there was a black book, and as far as I'm concerned there is no black book," he said. If that is the case, it will come as a bitter disappointment to prosecutors and a hungry New York media pack and cause many to wonder what the point of the five-year investigation was.



Gleason was attorney for the madam.

Schneiderman beat up two of the women (which is why they couldn't go to police).

They were referred to Gleason to arrange compensation.

Trump and Cohen come in via Trump's "modeling agency".

No agency would send escorts to Schneiderman anymore, so he started freelancing.

this is the shit that always went down in Moscow media. But now republican media in the USA is infested with witless, mean, deceitful, trivial, false, deflecting and demeaning horseshit.
