Michael Cohen used same company for payment deals for two women

Cohen, a lawyer who worked at a senior level for the Trump Organization, was present when Federal Bureau of Investigation officials raided his office, apartment and hotel room earlier this week. "She also wants to ensure that she is heard and that she is represented at the hearing".

Trump's longtime lawyer Michael Cohen secretly recorded his conversations with Stormy Daniel's former lawyer Keith Davidson, according to a new report from CNN- and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has now reportedly seized those recordings.

In a hearing in the wake of a federal raid on his office, home, and hotel room, prosecutors in the Southern District of NY revealed Friday that Cohen is a subject in a months-long criminal investigation, reportedly focused at least in part on his role in arranging a nondisclosure deal and $130,000 payout to Stormy Daniels.

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's court hearing is scheduled for Monday-and Daniels' current lawyer, Michael Avenatti told The Associated Press that it's "very possible" the porn star will make an appearance.

Of Trump, McKay said: "His attorney-client privilege is no greater than any other person who seeks legal advice".

When Trump took office, Cohen became Trump's personal attorney.

The prosecutors noted Cohen had personally not turned over any documents to Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tom McKay accused Cohen of trying to invoke "wildly overbroad" claims of attorney-client privilege to avoid the disclosure of thousands of allegedly privileged communications related to the president and other cases.

Last August, an attorney for Cohen, Stephen Ryan, delivered to Congress a point-by-point rebuttal of the dossier's allegations. They appeared in court on Friday, as did three lawyers for Trump, who at this time is not a party in the case.

The Justice Department is asking for a so-called taint team to vet the material seized in the raids Monday, as is standard process.

"It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney client communications between a lawyer and his client", attorney Stephen Ryan said in the statement.

Adult film actress Stephanie Clifford's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said Sunday that he expected criminal charges to be revealed against President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, within 90 days. They cited the President's own comments.

Russian Federation has denied interfering in the election and Trump has said there was no collusion.
