Stormy Daniels Lawyer: I'm 'Constantly Amazed' by Cohen's 'Lack of Intelligence'

Lawyers for Trump's Personal Attorney Set for Friday Court Appearance Michael Cohen seeks restraining order on items seized by feds

The filing, signed by acting U.S. Attorney Robert Khuzami in the Southern District of NY, also says that while the current investigation was referred by special counsel Robert Mueller, the NY investigation "has proceeded independent" of Mueller's work.

As his lawyers went to court in NY on Friday to try to block prosecutors from reading files that were seized from the personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, this week, Trump found himself increasingly isolated in mounting a response. Cohen did not appear in court Friday morning and has not been charged with a crime.

Cohen's Manhattan office was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday. Justice Department regulations require prosecutors to have a "taint team" not involved in the underlying investigation to sift through seized materials and make sure prosecutors don't see things that aren't relevant or are protected by lawyer-client privilege. Cohen's team, he said, was "delaying a government investigation because they can't come up with the facts to justify their case".

The investigation is separate from the special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe. His lawyer didn't immediately return a request for comment Sunday. Mueller's office referred the case about his business dealings to NY but hasn't been involved since, the Manhattan prosecutors said.

The dispatches record claims by Russian sources that Cohen met in Prague in August 2016 with Kremlin officials as part of Cohen's purported role "in a cover up...to prevent the full details of Trump's relationship with Russia being exposed".

Avenatti also said a copy of the non-disclosure agreement signed by Daniels in 2016 was sent to Cohen at his Trump Organization office in NY.

Cohen is seeking to stop the U.S. government from reviewing the documents.

Cohen is known to tape conversations with associates and store them, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

But "the attorney-client privilege can't at the same time be used as a sword and as a shield", McKay told Wood.

Cohen has admitted making the payment to Daniels and said he paid from his own pocket from a personal home equity loan. Federal prosecutors said they would wait to review the materials until then.

Donald Trump's long-time lawyer Michael Cohen. He is expected to make his first appearance at the hearing in U.S. District Court in NY, where his presence has been ordered by a judge considering a request on how to handle materials seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid.

Cohen has said he was only in NY and briefly in Los Angeles in August, when the meeting may have occurred, though the sources said it also could have been held in early September.
