Stormy Daniels' lawyer: Michael Cohen is 'radioactive'

Michael Cohen is said to have met secretly with people in Prague- possibly at the Russian Center for Science and

The lawyers wrote in a court filing Monday that the raids a week ago to gather evidence from attorney Michael Cohen were "completely unprecedented".

Wood also denied a request from Trump for a temporary restraining order against his own justice department, which would have explicitly ordered prosecutors to not begin going through the files from Cohen's home, office and hotel. Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Stormy Daniels, did not.

The search warrant authorizing the raid indicated prosecutors were looking into potential violations of bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance violations, sources told CNN.

Trump has called Mueller's probe a "witch-hunt" and denied any collusion.

Lawyers for Cohen and Trump had sought to be allowed to decide which items seized are protected by attorney-client privilege before prosecutors see them. Cohen's attorneys told the court he had three clients from 2017 to 2018, including the president and GOP financier Elliott Broidy, but they refused to name the third in public. Avenatti and his client both attended court today, and they watched the proceedings while Cohen tried challenging the Federal Bureau of Investigation over their recent raid on his office and seizure of various documents pertaining to the Daniels-hush money saga. But she outlined a process where both sides will go though the documents for privileged material. She did not say when she will issue a decision.

The militants blew themselves up outside the camp after they were prevented by security forces from entering, an army statement said.

The Justice Department's practices are meant to protect a defendant's attorney-client privilege. I never paid a legal fee. "The events of the last week reinstill the belief that NOBODY is above the law and the attorney-client privilege can not be used by those in power to hide criminal conduct". "I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third party". I never retained him in the traditional sense. "I give my word that we will not rest until that happens".

Following a wild day of proceedings as part of a criminal investigation into Cohen - including the revelation that Fox News host Sean Hannity had been a client of Cohen's- Avenatti said none of the lawyer's associates are safe. The lawyers also acknowledged that Mr. Cohen had once represented Elliot Brody, the deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee, who resigned on Friday after reports emerged that Mr. Cohen had helped him make a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model who became pregnant during their affair. They said that prosecutors had already intercepted emails from Cohen and executed the search warrants only after discovering that there were no emails between Trump and Cohen.

On Tuesday morning (Australian time), Mr Trump's fiercely loyal longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, fronted court to protest against the seizure of documents from his firm relating to the US President.

Cohen's lawyers say that Cohen should not be required to turn over the names. Prosecutors, meanwhile, argued that their investigation focused on his business dealings, not his legal work, and that Cohen, who is often referred to a Trump's "fixer", was "performing little to no legal work", and had exchanged zero e-mails with his famous client.

After the news broke, Hannity claimed that Cohen "never represented me in any matter" and that he "occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions".
