Corrected: Trump lawyer Cohen expected at court hearing, Stormy Daniels to attend

Fox News host Sean Hannity says it's no "big deal" that he consulted with Donald Trump's personal lawyer about his own legal affairs. "I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective".

Daniels's attorney, Michael Avenatti, said that she plans to be in the courtroom.

In a court filing on Monday, the president's lawyers said that the raids last week to gather evidence about Cohen's business dealings were "completely unprecedented". Cohen also has sought to review the material before prosecutors gain access them. Her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said he believes some of the materials seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation may relate to $130,000 in hush money Cohen paid Daniels in the lead up to the 2016 election. But Judge Kimba Wood made one of the lawyers identify him in open court.

"It nearly goes without saying, unfortunately", Harrison wrote, "that none of Mr. Cohen's clients want to be associated with the government raid on his home and law office, or want to be affiliated in any way with the proceedings here and the attendant media coverage". In 2013, says the Wall Street Journal, it was Cohen who spiked an Us Weekly story on the alleged affair between Audrey O'Day, the former Danity Kane member and Celebrity Apprentice contestant, and Donald Trump Jr., the man who inherited both his father's name and intelligence of a toaster.

Stormy Daniels's attorney asked to join in on the hearing, as he said he believes items seized were in regards to his client.

Wood said she would consider the idea.

"Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past", he tweeted. The filter team is working from a list of individuals and companies they've compiled regarding people who aren't Cohen's legal clients.

The hearing in a New York City courtroom stems from a surprise Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen's home and office.

Prior to that, they said, the files seized in the raids might include legal correspondence with five different law firms Cohen had hired on various matters, "hundreds" of clients he had represented dating back to 1991, and the Trump Organization, where he served as legal counsel from 2007 to 2017. In Stewart's case, which also took place in the Southern District of NY, her lawyers successfully objected to federal prosecutors using a "taint team" to review her attorney's files, and the court allowed a neutral special master to review the documents, also allowing Stewart's team to review the documents as well.

The disclosure came as Cohen's attorneys tried to persuade a federal judge in NY to delay prosecutors from examining records and electronic devices seized in the raids on the grounds that many of them are protected by attorney-client privilege.

But the filing contains the first details released by the Justice Department on the searches, which covered Cohen's residence, hotel room, office, safety deposit boxes and two cell phones.

"As the Court is surely aware, there is a growing public debate about whether criminal and congressional investigations by the government are being undertaken impartially, free of any political bias or partisan motivation".

President Donald Trump's personal attorney has arrived at a New York City courthouse for a hearing over an Federal Bureau of Investigation search of his files.

On Monday, Cohen's attorney called the searches "completely inappropriate and unnecessary".
