Lawyers for Trump's Personal Attorney Set for Friday Court Appearance
14 April, 2018, 14:27
White House spokesman Raj Shah said Friday evening that Michael Cohen continues to be President Donald Trump's personal attorney, despite being under criminal investigation.
Cohen sued in federal court in NY to block prosecutors from accessing files seized from his office and residence in an FBI raid on Monday.
Hilariously, prosecutors also slammed Cohen's claims of attorney-client privilege. Why?
In rsquo Friday &;therefore submitting, prosecutors accused Cohen's attorneys of creating the & ldquo; rdquo & unprecedented; assert that they ought to settle on which records are privileged, or make the decision to a venture.
Cohen'therefore attorneys requested U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood at the hearing to let them examine the seized supplies to be certain that there wasn't any breach of attorney-client privilege, allowing clients to safeguard communications with their own lawyers.
Further, prosecutors said in court papers that they used a search warrant in the Cohen raid - versus a subpoena - because "they had evidence" that his files "might be permanently deleted", the Times reported.
Despite the Cohen matter being unrelated to Mueller's Russian Federation investigation and the obstruction probe into Trump, the FBI raid on Monday infuriated the president and reportedly prompted him and his lawyers to scrap plans for a sit-down interview with Mueller. Davidson said Cohen argued that the women had waived attorney-client privilege by going public with their stories.
A report from The New York Times cites people familiar with Trump's thinking who said the president sees Cohen's criminal case as a bigger threat, due in part to Cohen having been his longtime attorney, fixer, and confidant.
McKay said Trump's ability to invoke the privilege is "no different" from anyone else's. When he introduced himself to the judge to ask to be heard, Wood seemed to indicate that she was already aware of his identity.
Cohen is seeking to stop the United States government from reviewing the documents. Avenatti said he thinks that some of the documents obtained from the Cohen search relate to his client.
Accordingly, they argue, most of the material seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not involve attorney-client privilege and could figure in a future court case.
Cohen is being investigated for possible bank fraud, wire fraud and violations of campaign laws, according to people familiar with the matter.
A full hearing is set for Monday on Cohen's petition.
