Trump's 'attack dog' Michael Cohen is facing criminal inquiry

Lawyers for Trump's Personal Attorney Set for Friday Court Appearance

It was only just days ago that Cohen's office was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Trump attorney Joanna Hendon also asked that prosecutors be temporarily prohibited from reviewing the paperwork.

The news that the corruption investigation in NY is seen by Trump's own advisers as a more imminent threat came as lawyers for Trump and Cohen sought to block investigators from going through records obtained on Monday in an FBI raid on Cohen's hotel room and office.

Mr Cohen has been under investigation for months, the court filing said.

"Mr. Trump, Mr. Cohen and their teams were still scrambling on Friday to assess the damage from the raid early Monday morning", The Times. Previous search warrants allowed NY federal prosecutors to search multiple email accounts, the filing said. They said Cohen had actually done "little to no legal work, and that zero emails were exchanged with President Trump".

Cohen, 51, skipped the daylong federal court session where his lawyers argued they deserved first crack at the documents to check for any possible violation of attorney-client privilege. They said Cohen has told at least one witness that his only client was Trump. Trump publicly denounced the raid and teed off on Robert Mueller.

Cohen worked as a high-level executive in the Trump Organization for almost a decade.

At the same time, Trump has found it hard to hire a new criminal lawyer to help him in the case, the Times reported.

Monday's raids included a search for communications related to efforts to suppress negative information ahead of the election, including communications that Trump had with Cohen regarding the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape that captured Trump making lewd remarks about women that surfaced a month before the election, CNN reported this week.

Mr Trump has denied any knowledge of Mr Cohen's payment to secure Ms Daniel's October 2016 signature on a secret agreement preventing her from talking about the affair.

"Although Cohen is an attorney, he also has several other business interests and sources of income". The filter team is working from a list of individuals and companies they've compiled regarding people who aren't Cohen's legal clients.

That's right. See, Cohen was less of a lawyer to Trump and more of a "fixer".

Prosectors also brought up a claim the Trump Organization has made to them after the raids that "each and every communication by, between or amongst Mr. Cohen and the Trump Organization and each of its officers, directors and employees, to be subject to and protected by the attorney- client privilege and/or the work-product privilege". They cited the President's own comments.
