Attorney: 'Too far' to have Stormy Daniels at Trump lawyer hearing

Avenatti has become known for his social media stunts. On March 22 three days before the'60 Minutes interview Avenatti tweeted

He filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles federal court last month, accusing the Gulf nation of Qatar of stealing and leaking emails to reporters in retribution for Broidy's attempts to influence the Trump administration in favor of regional rivals of Qatar.

The FBI also reportedly seized a slew of other materials in the Cohen raid, including material from his cellphones, tablet, laptop, and a safe deposit box, reports the New York Times.

The raids on Cohen came as part of a monthslong federal investigation based in NY, court records show, and were sweeping in their breadth.

Like we said last week, awash in troubles of his own making (Stormy, Mueller, tariffs, Cohen, Syria hedging, etc.), images of Trump seemed to cast him more clearly on the defensive.

"He is the president of the United States". "This is of most concern to him". "I think the public is a close second. And anyone who has ever hired a lawyer a close third". But Mr McKay said "the attorney-client privilege can't at the same time be used as a sword and as a shield".

It was Cohen who put together a non-disclosure agreement for adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had a relationship with Trump shortly after the birth of his son. It was not immediately clear on Friday what specific issues the court hearing would address.

May mulls Syria action despite cautious mood in UK
The Syrian government and Russian Federation , which backs it, strongly oppose the claims, which they say are fabricated. France is already involved in the USA -led coalition created in 2014 to fight the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq.

Federal Bureau of Investigation agents who conducted the raids were seeking information on payments to Ms Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who also claims to have had a sexual relationship with Mr Trump, a person familiar with the matter said.

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen late previous year helped arrange a $1.6 million payment by Elliott Broidy, a top Trump fundraiser and defense contractor, to a former Playboy model who claimed that Broidy impregnated her.

However, on April 9, federal agents executed search warrants against Cohen as part of an ongoing criminal investigation - leading to the request to put the civil case brought by Daniels on hold.

Wood said the intervention of a court or special master in the process was not unprecedented, citing the prosecution of Lynne Stewart, a radical Manhattan lawyer who was charged with smuggling communications out of prison for one of her clients. A judge granted that request late Friday.

Those confidentiality rules can be set aside under certain circumstances if investigators have evidence that a crime has been committed. "This has to be done right", she said.
