Stormy Daniels Lawyer: Trump Made 'Hugely Damaging Admission' About Cohen

  • Stormy Daniels Lawsuit Sees Michael Cohen Taking the Fifth and Trump's Lawyers Heading Back to Court: Reason Roundup

The request for a special master was originally made by Cohen.

Wood chose Jones, a former colleague, after prosecutors said they would agree to the use of a so-called special master. Wood instead chose Jones.

"There were probably payments that might be considered bribes, in connection with some of the housing that's been built in NY and maybe even overseas", she said.

"They're looking at something having to do with his business", Trump said. In both his book, A Higher Loyalty, and the interview circuit that coincided, Comey revealed Trump's obsession with the "pee tape" portion of the Steele dossier - who at one point allegedly noted that it couldn't be true because he didn't even stay over in Moscow during the 2013 Miss Universe Pageant when the incident supposedly took place.

Jones will decide what records may contain communications protected by attorney-client privilege, making them off-limits to prosecutors. And they undo the lock for Michael Cohen early in the morning.

Prosecutors noted that Cohen's lawyers had at first told the court that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had seized "thousands, if not millions" of pages of privileged material from his home and office.

A NY federal judge says she is appointing a former Manhattan federal judge to help determine what materials seized in raids on the home and office of President Donald Trump's private attorney are protected by attorney-client privilege.

In their filing, prosecutors withdrew their previous opposition to the appointment of a special master, provided that a third party receive the documents before Cohen and his attorneys.

Trump and Cohen don't quite see eye to eye on a special master.

At the hour-long hearing, the two sides laid out a general agreement for reviewing the seized documents but also suggested there were numerous issues that could spur further fights.

Jones will review the documents and determine which may be shielded by attorney-client privilege. It argues that the case does not present special circumstances that differentiate it from others in which protocol is a taint team.

Cohen wants the civil litigation put on hold because invoking the Fifth Amendment could hamper the litigation, his lawyers argued in an April 13 legal filing.

"You look guilty as hell!"

United States' President, Donald Trump, acknowledged on Thursday that his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, represented him in a "deal" involving actress Stormy Daniels.

Comey told a CNN broadcast that aired Wednesday - and Trump said he watched - that he was always concerned when someone lies to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, particularly if it's something an agent never asked about in the first place, as Comey says he did not in this case. Remember, Trump's entire argument has been that Michael Cohen acted alone on the hush money payment to Daniels.

Similarly, Hannity on Monday said in a tweet "Michael Cohen has never represented me in any matter. I have nothing to do with his business, I can tell you".

The comment appeared to conflict with earlier Trump comments insisting that he had been unaware of Cohen's payment to Daniels and could also prove legally problematic. However, Trump's cowardly refusal to take questions from the press has not stopped President Snowflake from calling into "safe" news programs to give his unchallenged take on affairs.

Cohen filed court papers Wednesday indicating he would assert his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination in the Daniels case.
