Trump's lawyers want role in reviewing Cohen files

17 April, 2018, 03:31 | Author: Wade Massey
  • Meanwhile four protesters stood outside the club with picket signs and a Trump banner. Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti tweeted about the protesters Saturday night taking a swipe at Trump's personal lawyer

The seized records "contain thousands if not millions of documents that are protected by attorney-client privilege", Cohen's attorney, Todd Harrison, told U.S. District Judge Kimba Woods.

He is expected to make his first appearance at the hearing in U.S. District Court in NY, where his presence has been ordered by a judge considering a request on how to handle materials seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid.

The Department of Justice announced Friday that Cohen had been "under criminal investigation" for months in NY relating to his business dealings.

The letter requested the court provide a copy of all seized documents to Trump and allow him to assert privilege over his chosen documents so they may not be disclosed. Prosecutors have defended the search in part by saying that the investigation has shown that Cohen does not do much legal work and does not appear to have many clients. It's supposed to prevent "privileged" information from being used against the client.

Cohen previously admitted to paying Daniels $130,000, which she said was payment in exchange for an agreement not to discuss an affair she claims to have had with the president.

Trump and Cohen's lawyers attempted to block federal prosecutors from using some of the records they obtained during the raid and filed a temporary restraining order. Then there's a feedback loop between Fox News and the president, in which he promotes the network's arguments against the FBI investigation and the investigation by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and Fox News, in turn, reports on the president's response.

Trump has denied that he had an affair with Daniels, and also claims she made that he had her threatened to remain quiet about their alleged romantic relationship. "Attorney-client privilege is dead!" he tweeted Tuesday.

President Donald Trump and his attorney Michael Cohen are in the process of fighting the government's review of files the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized pursuant to search warrants on Cohen's office and home.

You might have thought that the American Bar Association (ABA) would follow this up with a statement from its own president, not commenting on the ins-and-outs of the Cohen search, but expressing her concerns about the state of privilege, and the inroads being made generally and globally into confidentiality.

The disclosure came as attorneys for Cohen and Trump tried to persuade a NY judge 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.

Trump, who was in Florida on Monday, said all lawyers are now "deflated and concerned" by the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on Cohen. He wrote "I have many (too many!) lawyers and they are probably wondering when their offices, and even homes, are going to be raided with everything, including their phones and computers, taken".

On Sunday, Mr Trump's lawyers asked a judge to let him preview the files. "All lawyers are deflated and concerned!"

The president asked that he be able to review before investigators are able to look at anything they took during that time.
