Another one of Michael Cohen's clients? Sean Hannity

Another one of Michael Cohen's clients? Sean Hannity

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is entangled in a separate civil battle with Michael Cohen, the president's lawyer, over a $US130,000 payment made to her as part of a 2016 agreement to stop her from discussing a sexual encounter she says she had with Trump a decade earlier. If agents working for the USA attorney for the Southern District of NY, which directed the recent raid on Cohen's office, discover evidence related to the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation, they may even turn it over to Robert Mueller. Trump's attorneys filed papers on Sunday that would temporarily keep the Justice Department from reviewing the materials gained from an April 9 raid of Cohen's home and office.

Avenatti had tweeted on Friday about Cohen's ordered appearance with a comment that the "weather forecast for Monday looks very Stormy".

Cohen, the president's long-time personal lawyer and fixer, is under criminal investigation by the FBI.

A third Cohen client is Elliott Broidy, a prominent GOP fundraiser who resigned from the Republican National Committee after using Cohen to arrange a $1.6 million payment to another Playboy model he reportedly impregnated. The court proceedings Monday dealt with who gets to look at Cohen's seized documents and devices before they are turned over to prosecutors.

If proven, that is a felony offense that could land Cohen in jail for up to 30 years. But Cohen's lawyers said those names may be confidential. Instead, they said, those documents are now being reviewed by a "taint team" - a group of separate investigators walled off from prosecutors, who are primarily responsible for separating out materials that fall under attorney-client privilege.

Trump said Sunday that all lawyers are now "deflated and concerned" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen. "I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees", Hannity said in a statement issued after his radio show.

They also said that Cohen appeared to have few clients other than the President and they had not uncovered any emails between the two suggesting the potential risk of violating attorney client privilege was slim.

Attorney-client privilege is a long-standing doctrine of USA law that allows the subject of a lawsuit or criminal case to keep their communications with legal counsel private.

District Judge Kimba Wood surprised some court-watchers even by saying she was open to that possibility in the dispute between the Justice Department and Michael Cohen, but ended the Monday afternoon hearing without deciding.

The judge's decisions dealt a blow to Trump and Cohen, who asked to have the first look at Cohen's files after Trump denounced the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids as being part of a political "witch-hunt" and declared: "Attorney-client privilege is dead!"

It is unusual but not unprecedented for criminal investigators to seize documents from a lawyer, and there is a policy in place created to shield information covered by the attorney-client privilege. Federal prosecutors want a team of government lawyers to review the material to determine what's covered by the attorney-client privilege and what can be passed to investigators. She also asked the prosecution team to get a precise estimate on how long their proposed vetting group, a so-called taint team, would need to go through everything and sort out what's relevant and what's privileged.

"It would not protect the public confidence in the administration of justice to give Mr Cohen and the president special treatment", said McKay, adding later: "Just because Mr Cohen has a powerful client does not mean he's entitled to special treatment". Both women claimed to have affairs with Trump, who has denied the allegations.
