Michael Cohen asked the court to give his lawyers a chance to see seized during the search of the content
The personal lawyer of the President of the United States Donald trump, Michael Cohen, in the office and the house which last week were searched, asked the judge to limit the Federal prosecutors access to the seized documents. As expected, the hearings, which will act as Cohen, will also attend the actress of films for adults Stormy Daniels.
Cohen, in respect of which, as we learned last week, conducted a criminal investigation, asked the court to give his lawyers a chance to see with the seized materials in order to select the documents subject to attorney-client privilege.
Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) is also planning to appear at hearings on Monday, what eve said her lawyer Michael Avenatti. Daniels is suing Cohen because of the confidentiality agreement that she signed in exchange for 130,000 dollars, promising not to tell about her affair with trump in 2006.
Trump’s lawyers on Sunday asked the court to give them the opportunity to find documents that are somehow related to the President.
The lawyers of Cohen on Friday appeared at the hearing in the district court of Manhattan without his client. Judge Kimba wood decided that on Monday, the priest should appear in court personally to answer questions about their customers.
The lawyers of Cohen insist that Cohen should not be forced to disclose client names. According to them, in 2017-18. he had at least 10 clients that he had a “traditional legal services.” Among them, the trump, the organizer of the fundraiser in favor of the Republican party Elliott Broidy and another man, whose name was not disclosed.
Cohen organized the payment of 1.6 million dollars the former Playboy model, who claims she got pregnant from Broidy, said on Friday close to the point source.
Sam Cohen does not comment the situation.
According to prosecutors, Cohen searches were conducted on the results of several months of investigation, associated primarily with business, not legal work.
As told last week familiar with the situation source FBI agents were interested, in particular, documents related to the payment of Daniels.
As appears from judicial documents, one of the grounds for the searches was the recommendation of the office of spectracolor Robert Mueller, who leads the investigation on the possible collusion between the campaign headquarters trump and Russia.
Trump calls led by Mueller’s investigation a “witch hunt” and denied that collusion took place.
