Stormy Daniels may show up at Trump lawyer Cohen's hearing

Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, argues that the court must first decide if there even is an agreement and has asked for limited discovery, including depositions of Trump and Cohen and production of certain documents, in order to prove there is not.

In response to Cohen's motion to prevent prosecutors from using evidence collected in Monday's raids of his home and office, the United States attorney in NY asserted the raids were authorized by a federal judge to seek evidence of conduct "for which Cohen is under criminal investigation".

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether any crimes were committed as part of an effort by Cohen to squelch damaging stories about Trump when Trump was a presidential candidate, according to a person familiar with the matter.

It comes as U.S. attorneys confirmed on Friday that Cohen had been under criminal investigation for months.

Then, The Wall Street Journal reported, seemingly out of the blue, that Cohen had facilitated a payment to a former Playboy model who had become pregnant after an affair with prominent Republican fundraiser Elliott Broidy - an arrangement that echoed similar arrangements between President Trump and Stormy Daniels, as well as Karen McDougal.

Agents also sought records on Cohen's taxi business, CNN reported.

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.

Wood said the intervention of a court or special master in the process was not unprecedented, citing the prosecution of Lynne Stewart, a radical Manhattan lawyer who was charged with smuggling communications out of prison for one of her clients. "It might be less than a thousand".

Information deemed to be germane to the criminal investigation would not be protected by attorney-client privilege.

Lawyer Michael Avenatti, who now represents Daniels, responded to the CNN report in a tweet on Friday.

McDougal alleges in a lawsuit that Cohen has a cozy relationship with Davidson.

From there, Cohen became a fixture in the president's organization.

"We have not spoken since that time", Mr Broidy said in the statement.

Wood requested the attorneys to reconvene in the future Friday.

While Trump had the "utmost interest" in ensuring that the process of preserving attorney-client privilege was respected, so did the public - and anyone who has ever sought legal counsel, Hendon said.

Stephen Ryan, a lawyer for Mr. Cohen, referred to his earlier description of the raid as "completely inappropriate and unnecessary".

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

Mueller is investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
