Lawyers for Trump's Personal Attorney Set for Friday Court Appearance

Lawyers for Trump's Personal Attorney Set for Friday Court Appearance

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels will be in the federal courtroom Monday during a hearing for President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen, her lawyer confirmed.

It's unclear who Cohen met with or what he did in Prague, but his reported trip there came shortly after Paul Manafort abruptly resigned from his role as Trump campaign chairman amid news he had secretly received $12.7 million in secret payment from a pro-Putin Ukrainian political party. It could also constitute smoking gun evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the presidential campaign. Cohen has denied ever visiting the Czech capital.

Mr Cohen had already notified the US District Court in Los Angeles on Thursday that he meant to request a stay in Ms Daniels' lawsuit against him and Mr Trump "on the grounds that an ongoing criminal investigation overlaps with the facts of this case". Kosachev chairs the Foreign Affairs Committee of a body of the Russian legislature, the Federation Council. The plan would have ended USA sanctions imposed on Russia in 2014 in response to its incursion into Ukraine in exchange for minimal Russian concessions.

A CNN source gave some details on the audio recordings, but no smoking gun.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller's office, declined to comment.

On Saturday, Cohen disputed the report. Trump has said he did not know about the payment.

Cohen, in a Twitter post, said, "I have never been to Prague in my life".




The subject of the defamation claim is a written statement issued by Mr Cohen in February, in which he said: "Just because something isn't true doesn't mean that it can't cause you harm or damage".

The already complex legal battle could soon see another layer of litigation, as former Clifford attorney Keith Davidson has threatened to sue following reports that Cohen recorded their phone conversations without his knowledge. President Trump similarly dismissed the allegation as false.

Manhattan federal prosecutors on Friday agreed to put on hold any review of materials seized from the office of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer this week after a hearing in which attorneys for the lawyer, Trump himself and porn star Stormy Daniels all weighed in. Cohen has publicly acknowledged making three trips to Europe that year - to Italy in July, England in early October and a third after Trump's November election.

In last Friday's filing, prosecutors said it would be " unprecedented" to allow Cohen's lawyers to decide what is privileged, and that the government should be allowed to use its own "taint team" or "filter team" to do the job.

Cohen has said he was only in NY and briefly in Los Angeles in August, when the meeting may have occurred, though the sources said it also could have been held in early September.

The Steele dossier claims that Cohen travelled to Prague and met with Russian operatives in August or September.

The disclosures raise the prospect that Cohen may have cut other deals to bury salacious claims about Trump.
