Trump lawyer Cohen seeks delay in porn star's lawsuit

  • Donald Trump's personal attorney made it a habit to tape phone conversations and use them as leverage

After hearing the matter Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood said she did not have enough information to issue any ruling on that request.

The Steele dossier is not only crucial because of all the salacious and sordid details about the president but also because it revealed the extent of supposed ties between members of the Trump campaign and officials in Moscow, which prompted the FBI to launch an investigation and conclude Russian government indeed interfered during the 2016 presidential election.

Uncertainty over exactly what Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized from Mr Cohen comes as Mr Trump faces an intensifying probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether his presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation. The report does not say that Mueller can show he met with any Russian figures, but simply proving that Cohen visited Prague despite his adamant denial "could be quite significant", writes Philip Bump in the Washington Post.

He tweeted on Saturday: "Bad reporting, bad information and bad story by same reporter Peter Stone @McClatchyDC".

President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen claimed Friday he has never visited Prague after he previously admitted to having been there at least once, in 2001. Cohen said he paid Daniels $130,000 in exchange for her silence about her claim to have had a one-night-stand with Trump.

Cohen's attorney Brent Blakely said on Thursday, "No decision has been made for Mr. Cohen to assert his Fifth Amendment rights".

Cohen's lawyers, for their part, have asked to review the material for themselves, a proposal which the Manhattan prosecutors are fighting. She ordered the lawyers - including Cohen - to return to court Monday with more details, including a list of Cohen's clients. Records related to Cohen's taxi medallion business were also sought.

A Justice Department "filter team" should go ahead, prosecutors argue, in reviewing the evidence and determining which is protected under attorney-client privilege and which could be material in a potential future criminal case.

Investigators have also looked for a possible broader pattern of fraud, tax evasion, money laundering and other crimes in Cohen's private dealings, including his work for Trump and real estate purchased by Russian buyers, the person said.

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.

"Cohen's claim that he has confidential communications with multiple clients appears to be exaggerated".
