Stormy Daniels Lawyer: I'm 'Constantly Amazed' by Cohen's 'Lack of Intelligence'

Stormy Daniels Lawyer: I'm 'Constantly Amazed' by Cohen's 'Lack of Intelligence'

The filing says this investigation into Cohen is separate from the special counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election.

US District Judge Kimba Wood in Manhattan ordered Cohen to appear in court on Monday afternoon, after holding three hearings on Friday into his request for a temporary restraining order (TRO) blocking prosecutors from reviewing seized materials.

A court filing did not detail what Cohen is under investigation for. The FBI raided his office, home and hotel room on April 9.

In the filing with a court in NY, prosecutors blacked out a section describing what laws they believe Cohen has broken, but they said the "crimes being investigated involve acts of concealment" and suspected fraud.

The web of investigative threads surrounding Cohen has not only eliminated his effectiveness of as an advocate for the president: they've made him a massive liability, offering a dizzying array of avenues for Mueller to explore.

Assistant US Attorney Tom McKay accused Cohen of trying to invoking "wildly overbroad" claims of attorney-client privilege to avoid the disclosure of thousands of allegedly privileged communications related to the president and other cases. "For example, Cohen has told at least one witness that he has only one client - President Trump", prosecutors wrote in a court filing.

Mr Cohen and Mr Davidson did not immediate respond to requests for comment.

But she also drew a link with the nerve agent attack on Russian former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury. State TV broadcast what it said was the research center that was attacked, showing footage of rubble and destroyed building.

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

Looks like whatever Mueller found only bolstered their case.

Cohen has denied for months that he ever has been in Prague or colluded with Russian Federation during the campaign. Mr. Cohen has also filed a libel suit against Fusion. "There's been no finding of wrong doing against Michael Cohen either", said White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary.

In their sweep of Cohen's records, investigators were reportedly seeking to obtain documents and communications regarding a payoff of Daniels to remain silent about her alleged affair with the president years before he entered office.

Cohen's lawyers, for their part, have asked to review the material for themselves, a proposal which the Manhattan prosecutors are fighting.

The details in court papers came as lawyers for Cohen and Trump sought to block the Justice Department from examining records and electronic devices, including two cell phones, seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday from Cohen's residences, office and safety deposit box.
