Adult-film star Stormy Daniels to attend Trump lawyer's hearing

Lawyers for Trump's Personal Attorney Set for Friday Court Appearance

In response to Cohen's motion to prevent prosecutors from using evidence collected in Monday's raids of his home and office, the U.S. attorney in NY asserted the raids were authorized by a federal judge to seek evidence of conduct "for which Cohen is under criminal investigation". Bernie Sanders. Mueller's investigators have sought to learn who passed the emails to WikiLeaks, which published them in July and October, embarrassing Clinton and her backers.

Citing unidentified sources, McClatchy said on Friday that investigators for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is also probing possible collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign, had proof Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany.

The FBI has seized recordings of phone calls between Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels' lawyer, according to CNN. The judge requested that Cohen be present in court on Monday. But Mr McKay said "the attorney-client privilege can't at the same time be used as a sword and as a shield".

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. "... He is the President of the United States". "I think you can say exactly the same thing about Cohen". "And anyone who has ever hired a lawyer a close third". It was for the investigation that the US attorney in NY argued they were seized. Her client, the president, "as the privilege-holder, has an acute interest in this issue", she said.


Federal agents seized records on a variety of subjects in raids Monday on Cohen's Manhattan office, apartment and hotel room, including payments that were made in 2016 to women who might have damaging information about Trump.

The unusual, high-stakes court hearing Friday also featured an appearance by an attorney representing Trump, Joanna Hendon. Cohen's team, he said, was "delaying a government investigation because they can't come up with the facts to justify their case". Or, they said, the court could appoint a special master for that goal. Her attorney said she could be in court Monday because she believes some of the seized documents may be related to her case.

Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Stormy Daniels, told Reuters on Thursday that Cohen's attorney told him that Cohen will plead the Fifth if his application for a stay is denied. But they also want DOJ and the FBI to investigate whether the representations the Federal Bureau of Investigation made to the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to obtain a warrant that started the surveillance of the Trump transition team "were in error".
