FBI Seized Recordings Between Michael Cohen And Stormy Daniels' Former Lawyer

Michael Cohen seeks restraining order on items seized by feds

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, on Friday filed for a 90-day delay in porn star Stormy Daniels' defamation lawsuit, citing Monday's raids on his home, office and hotel room by U.S. prosecutors.

Depending on what was discussed during the reported call, it could raise problems for both Trump and Cohen.

In rsquo Friday &;therefore submitting, prosecutors accused Cohen's attorneys of creating the & ldquo; rdquo & unprecedented; assert that they ought to settle on which records are privileged, or make the decision to a venture.

Despite being the subject of a criminal investigation surrounding his business dealings, Michael Cohen appeared casual and composed while being photographed around NY this week.

The Justice Department announced Friday that Cohen has been under criminal investigation for months in NY relating to his business dealings.

It also potentially involved records related to porn star Stormy Daniels, who was paid $130,000 weeks before the election to silence an alleged affair she had with Trump. The source added that Trump is upset beyond anything he has witnessed so far in the administration, and that the Cohen raid was a tipping point.

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. The Times reports that his advisers "have concluded that a wide-ranging corruption investigation in NY poses a greater and more imminent threat to the president than even the special counsel's investigation, according to several people close to Mr. Trump".

"There could be a whole host of documents relating to that agreement, the payment, what the president knew, when he knew it, and we're hopefully going to find out exactly what's in the documents", Avenatti said.

While Cohen has admitted to no wrongdoing, the intensity of the government's investigation will put significant pressure on one of the President's closest confidants. Cohen frequently taped conversations with adversaries and opposing lawyers, according to the two people briefed.

The dossier claimed that, in Prague, Cohen met with a prominent ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Konstantin Kosachev, but it is not clear whether Mueller has evidence of such a meeting.

UPDATE: Cohen's Friday somehow took a turn for the even worse in the early evening.

"Well, unless the president was calling Michael Cohen for purposes of seeking legal advice, the call is not privileged meaning the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the prosecutors could ask Michael Cohen about that call", Painter explained. Investigators also sought records related to Cohen's interactions with Trump campaign officials during the 2016 election cycle, according to the sources.

In any case, as previously reported, all seized materials are subject to review by a special "taint team" (make your own joke) to make sure they're not protected.
