President's lawyer under investigation

McClatchy: Mueller Has Evidence Cohen Was in Prague in 2016

For now, the judge has ordered Cohen's attorney to bring Cohen to the upcoming court hearing Monday. He liked to refer to himself as Trump's "Ray Donovan".

"We heard he had some proclivity to make tapes", said one Trump adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

And it turns out there's no such thing as Donovan-client privilege.

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.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, has been "under criminal investigation" for months in NY because of his business dealings, the Justice Department said Friday.

Prosecutors revealed the new details about the Michael Cohen investigation after his lawyer appeared in court seeking to temporarily bar prosecutors from reviewing materials that FBI agents seized in a search of Cohen's office, home and hotel room. In a footnote, the government stated that the Manhattan prosecutors' investigation "has proceeded independent from" Mueller's, and that suggestions that Mueller's team "drafted the search warrants is unfounded".

Agents collected electronic devices and documents in the raid.

Accordingly, they argue, most of the material seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not involve attorney-client privilege and could figure in a future court case. They claim it's protected by attorney-client privilege.

Trump's fiercely loyal personal attorney Michael Cohen chose to smoke cigars with his buddies while a judge chastised his lawyers in the court.

At the outset, Harrison brought up his concerns about how the government meant to proceed with the material the government seized during the raids.

Uber's new ticketing option will be powered by Masabi's Justride SDK, the first and only mobile ticketing SDK for public transit. The two companies said they also will be working together to offer the integration to new cities around the globe.

" I'm not trying to delay anything but nor do I see a particular hurry", Hendon explained.

Hendon contended that she had only been retained on Wednesday, two days after the raids. He also characterized the special counsel's investigation as a "witch hunt".

Wood said she would likely seal that hearing from the press and public, despite objections from the New York Times, Newsday, the Associated Press and ABC. They are also not known to be parties to a joint defense agreement.

Cohen, who has denied wrongdoing, has been at the center of a controversy surrounding a $130,000 payment to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

The unusual, high-stakes court hearing Friday also featured an appearance by an attorney representing Trump, Joanna Hendon.

It has been an extremely bad day for President Trump's personal lawyer/fixer/capo.

Cohen, however, said the officials who conducted the raid had been courteous and professional.

Cohen is being investigated for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and violations of campaign-finance laws, according to people familiar with the matter.

Cohen's lawyer cited attorney-client privilege in seeking to restrict access to "documents and communications related to numerous clients". Cohen's reply is due by 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Another lawyer also sought to make his case: Clifford's attorney Michael Avenatti.
