Trump Attorney Cohen Is Subject Of Months-Long Federal Criminal Investigation

Michael Cohen President Donald Trump's lawyer doesn't want

Cohen did not appear in court Friday morning and has not been charged with a crime.

On Friday, McClatchy reported that special counsel Robert Mueller possesses evidence that Trump's longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, "secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign".

Prosecutors emphasized that their investigation was focused on Cohen's business dealings, not his work as a lawyer. Hendon, who said Trump hired her on Wednesday evening, urged Wood not to decide who gets first shot to review seized documents until after she files a brief by Sunday night.

During the FBI's raid of Trump's lawyer's office, CNN reports they seized audio recordings between Stormy Daniels' laywer at the time, Keith Davidson, and Trump's current lawyer, Michael Cohen. Initially, Mueller had requested some records from Cohen while he was with the Trump family company - a position he held for about a decade - yet dropped the request after Cohen pushed back.

Investigators for Mueller, the special counsel in the Russian Federation probe, have evidence Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany in late summer 2016, McClatchy reported, citing two unnamed sources.

The McClatchy story was quickly cited by liberal news organs determined to prove that the discredited dossier, and all its Russian Federation collusion charges against Mr. Trump, are true.

The Friday motion said that because of that overlap, "Mr Cohen's Fifth Amendment rights may be adversely impacted if this case proceeds", a reference to the possibility that his testimony could be used by prosecutors to build a related criminal case against him.

Russian Federation defiant after Syria bombing, warns of "consequences"
That attack, White says, hit a Syrian military air base and was meant to focus on Syria's ability to deliver chemical weapons. Pentagon officials said the attacks targeted the heart of Assad's programs to develop and produce chemical weapons.

Each search warrant specifically describes how records seized that may fall into attorney-client privilege will be filtered out by a team that's walled off from the federal agents who have conducted the investigation, the prosecutors wrote. Both women have allege sexual liaisons with Trump in the past, though the president has said the claims are untrue.

According to the dossier, Cohen played a part in the alleged conspiracy.

Photo Members of the media approached President Trump's personal attorney, Michael D. Cohen, in NY on Thursday.

A judge ordered Cohen to appear in person at a hearing set for Monday.

Cohen has admitted making the payment to Daniels and said he paid from his own pocket from a personal home equity loan.

Searches of lawyers' offices are rare but not unheard of, and prosecutors use what is called a separate "taint team" to review the material and exclude any documents that are covered by the attorney-client privilege.

The judge also heard a request from Michael Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer, to weigh in on the files because they likely involved her, and the judge consented.
