Michael Cohen reveals client list ahead of hearing

It suggests that Cohen took over management of the relationship with Russia after campaign chairman Paul Manafort

Avenatti was seemingly referring to the fact that Fox has devoted a fraction of the coverage that other networks have given to the FBI's raid on Cohen's offices.

Hannity, an outspoken supporter of Trump, has been a fierce critic of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

Lawyers for Michael Cohen argued in court on Monday that they could not identify Hannity because he asked that his name not be disclosed in connection with an Federal Bureau of Investigation seizure of Cohen's files.

The porn star, who was paid $130,000 in a hush agreement over her alleged affair with Trump, sat on a foldable seat, keeping a steady gaze on Cohen. Both women claimed to have affairs with Trump, who has denied the allegations.

Lawyers separately representing Cohen's and Trump's interests first asked the U.S. district court in Manhattan to block the Justice Department from reviewing the seized communications last week.

No, the privilege only covers communications relating to legal advice, said Lisa Kern Griffin, a former federal prosecutor and a professor at Duke University School of Law.

Cohen, Trump's fiercely loyal and pugnacious lawyer, is in court to ask a judge to limit the ability of federal prosecutors to review documents seized from him last week as part of a criminal investigation. "It is paramount that the review of Mr. Cohen " s data and documents be handled in such a way as to eliminate as much as possible, even the "appearance of unfairness'".

"Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past", he tweeted. Prosecutors depend on the "clean team" to segregate evidence and divide that which might become part of a court case from that shielded by attorney-client privilege.

Cohen's lawyers want to go over the documents and tapes and shield from prosecutors any they deem privileged.

Cohen did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cohen made a similar argument last week.

Wood instead allowed prosecutors to move forward with the initial stages of the review. The latter firm, identified in the letter as "Law Firm-1" had a "strategic alliance' with Cohen, but the law firm said after the raid that the alliance had ended".

Attorneys for Cohen wanted first look at their client's seized docs and devices, before they're handed over to prosecutors; Trump's lawyers wanted same.

Cohen and Trump's legal teams said that numerous seized materials were communications that were private and fell under attorney-client privilege.

I don't know, maybe these photographers thought she was going to take off her clothes.

A federal judge Monday rejected efforts by President Donald Trump and his personal attorney to keep law enforcement from accessing records seized in a stunning raid last week.

Cohen's hearing is set for 2 p.m. Monday in Manhattan.

Cohen's lawyers initially pushed back against publicly revealing the name of their third client, noting that he was a publicly prominent figure and that revealing his name might embarrass him and bring undue scrutiny.

"Cohen's novel proposal [for review] would set a risky precedent", wrote the USA prosecutors, in Friday's filing.

Echoing several of Mr. Trump's supporters, the lawyers also noted in their filing that there was "a growing public debate" about whether criminal and congressional investigations by the government "are being undertaken impartially, free of any political bias or partisan motivation".
