Michael Cohen’s lawyers have until mid-June to review documents, judge says

NEW YORK NY- APRIL 13 Michael Cohen President Donald Trump's attorney takes a phone call near the Loews Regency hotel on Park Ave

President Donald Trump, his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, and the Trump Organisation have so far claimed as privileged just 252 documents seized during the raids of Cohen's home, office, and hotel room. He said they have reviewed about 1.3 million of the 3.7 million files turned over.

The first date bill in the invoice is April 24, two days before Wood named Jones during a hearing as special master to review material seized by the government for potential privilege issues.

Michael Cohen's legal team says dossier released by Stormy Daniels" lawyer includes information about other people named Michael Cohen; reaction on "The Ingraham Angle'.

Wood was unmoved, but she made comments in court that may have prompted Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, to withdraw a request to get a formal role in the legal negotiations.

Ryan also said Avenatti had improperly acquired and released certain bank records related to Cohen's business dealings.

After leaving the hearing, Avenatti offered an energetic condemnation of Cohen to the press assembled outside the courthouse. Avenatti showed reporters records of hundreds of thousands of dollars in transactions between Cohen LLC Essential Consultants and companies including AT&T and Novartis.

"We believe the attached court documents amplify our opposition to Mr. Avenatti's motion to be" admitted into the case, Cohen's lawyers wrote in the Tuesday filing.

Wood told Avenatti that there are certain "professional responsibilities" that lawyers in NY must follow, and should he wish to intervene in the case, he would not be able to voice his opinions on Cohen's guilt or innocence, he would not be allowed to make private documents public, and he would have to stop his "publicity tour".

"That means that you would have to stop doing some things you have been doing".

Syria: US-backed SDF challenges Assad military threats
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said his government won't accept a permanent Iranian presence anywhere in Syria. Assad also stated that Trump's invention of an insulting nickname did not move him or Syria in the slightest.

"If you participate here, you would not be able to declare your opinion as to Mr. Cohen's guilt, which you did;" she said.

But the judge said taking too long was not an option. The fallout over the payments eventually led to revelations Trump reimbursed Cohen for the payment to Daniels, something the president previously denied knowing about.

The attorney for porn actress Stormy Daniels appeared Wednesday evening on MSNBC's "The Beat With Ari Melber", where the host asked him to speculate about what those tapes might reveal about the president and his Trump Organization attorney.

"It has not occurred", he said.

Avenatti's client, Daniels, received that hush-money payment from Cohen in exchange for her silence regarding a 2006 affair she alleged having with Trump.

Avenatti called those arguments "without merit and frivolous" and said it "speaks volumes that they so desperately" want him excluded from the case. "What Mr Avenatti did was entirely reckless and improper". ". People can make their own determinations as to their importance pertaining to the president and what he knew and when he knew it and what he did". Any such material, if it exists, is "under lock and key" at his offices, he said.

Federal prosecutors additionally revealed for the primary time that among the many objects seized Cohen final months was a shredding machine, the contents of that are among the many exclusively objects that the federal government has not but turned over to the particular grasp or Cohen's authorized workforce.

During an April hearing, Wood sided with Cohen and appointed a special master to oversee the document review process, rather than have the team of government lawyers make privilege declarations.
