Trump lawyer Cohen seeks delay in porn star's lawsuit

Trump lawyer Cohen seeks delay in porn star's lawsuit

Cohen often recorded telephone conversations both before and during the 2016 presidential campaign that also could have been scooped up in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on his apartment, office and hotel room, sources told CNN.

Cohen has not been charged with a crime.

The Monday raid on Cohen's home and office took Trump by surprise and added to the stress of the Mueller investigation, which is looking into whether Trump committed obstruction of justice and whether his campaign cooperated with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 USA election.

In a court filing on Friday, federal prosecutors confirmed that Cohen was over his firm transactions rather than his private work, chiefly under legal investigation for decades.

They said agents had already searched multiple email accounts maintained by Cohen.

Investigators can examine attorney-client work that falls within the purview of the Cohen criminal probe, but a separate Justice Department review is typically required in order to protect attorney-client privilege.

Just because the prosecution appears to believe Trump and Cohen are co-conspirators, that doesn't necessarily mean that will be proven, but that scenario is "clearly being scrutinized", McCarthy said.

As pitching coach for Oregon, Roberts helped the team to a 1.82 ERA. "Hopefully this experience will be beneficial", said Reimer. The offensive output would put the Purple Panthers in a commanding situation as they held onto a 10-run lead after one inning.

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

Federal prosecutors made that disclosure on Friday in responding to a request by Cohen for a judge to restrict the government's ability to review the evidence the FBI collected in those raids.

Mueller's office referred the case about his business dealings to NY but hasn't been involved since, the Manhattan prosecutors said.

One source said Cohen played to Trump and some associates conversations that he had with political and media figures during the exploratory part of the campaign.

But when the judge demanded that Cohen's lawyers provide some proof that Cohen has any other clients beyond the commander in chief, they twice came back empty-handed.

US President Donald Trump's personal lawyer arranged for a $US1.6 million payment to a Playboy Playmate to keep secret her sexual relationship with a top Republican fundraiser and ally of Trump, a person familiar with the matter says.

"As a privilege holder, he [Trump] has an acute interest in those proceedings and the manner in which these materials are reviewed", Hendon said, asking Judge Kimba Wood at the US District Court for the Southern District of NY to postpone the hearing until next Monday. The hearing was set for Monday afternoon.

MI on the other hand played 37 good overs of T20 cricket only to be blown away by a Dwayne Bravo special in their opening fixture. It needed just three top-order batsmen to knock over RR's target of 127 and as a result, the middle-order was not even tested.

Hendon, who said Trump hired her on Wednesday evening, urged Wood not to decide who gets first shot to review seized documents until after she files a brief by Sunday night.

Hendon also told the judge that she has conveyed her concerns about the use of a "taint team" in the Cohen raids.

Stephen Ryan, an attorney for Cohen, said in a statement this week that the searches of Cohen's office and residences were unnecessary and that the materials seized are protected by the attorney-client privilege.

RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said she spoke by telephone with Broidy, and "he tendered his resignation".

Stephanie Clifford's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said it's "very possible" that the porn actress would show up at Monday's hearing on the FBI's raid on President Donald Trump's personal lawyer's home and office.

Cohen wants Wood to let them or a "special master" review the seized materials to decide what can be turned over, without violating the right of his clients to shield communications with their lawyers.
