Stormy Daniels to attend Trump lawyer Michael Cohen's hearing Monday

Broidy Goes Down and Michael Cohen is Involved

In last Friday's filing, prosecutors said it would be " unprecedented" to allow Cohen's lawyers to decide what is privileged, and that the government should be allowed to use its own "taint team" or "filter team" to do the job.

In the Clifford case, Cohen and Trump on Friday filed a joint application requesting a 90-day stay of the action.

If Cohen and AMI's payments were created to prevent the disclosure of information that would hurt Trump's presidential bid, they could be found to be illegal in-kind contributions far in excess of personal contribution limits.

Outlets say a hearing to address Cohen's restraining order request is scheduled for Friday.

However, it still remains unclear what type of evidence Mueller's team has of the alleged secret meeting between Trump's attorney and the Russians.

Man City crowned Premier League champions
Chelsea's 2004-05 side loved travelling, winning 15 times away from home, the only team to do so in the Premier League era. Better still, they swept opponents aside with style and swagger, scoring 93 league goals so far (United have 63).

During the raid on Cohen, the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized documents relating to the $130,000 "hush money" paid by Cohen to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Donald Trump shortly after the birth of his youngest son Barron, The Hill reported.

It was partly these payments that led authorities to raid Cohen's home, office and hotel on April 9, according to the Journal.

"It's meant to send the message that this is a serious matter for her and she wants to make sure that the American people know that she is behind efforts to bring to light as much information and documents as possible", Avenatti said.

"She will enroll in" rsquo & Clifford;s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, composed to Reuters, when asked perhaps the adult-film actress wouldbe in court.

Friday's motion said that because of that overlap, "Mr Cohen's Fifth Amendment rights may be adversely impacted if this case proceeds", a reference to the possibility that his testimony could be used by prosecutors to build a related criminal case against him. "She's going to attend at 2 o'clock on Monday".

"We have every reason to believe that some of the documents seized relate to my client", he said. The raid was unrelated to the Trump-Russia collusion investigation, but instead focused on payments made to women who have said they had sexual relationships with Trump. 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".
