Trump's lawyer denies visiting Prague during 2016 campaign

Cohen is Trump's personal lawyer

Also, there are reports Cohen has told people Trump is his only client, which if true would mean he didn't have privilege with any of his other communications or recordings either.

Cohen's attorneys have filed a temporary restraining order in the matter, asking the court to stop federal prosecutors from using some of the records they seized.

The Monday raid on Cohen's home and office took Trump by surprise and added to the stress of the Mueller investigation, which is looking into whether Trump committed obstruction of justice and whether his campaign cooperated with Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 United States election.

Uncertainty over exactly what Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized from Mr Cohen comes as Mr Trump faces an intensifying probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into whether his presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

The Trump interventions came as federal prosecutors in NY confirmed Cohen "is being investigated for criminal conduct that largely centers on his personal business dealings".

The unusual, high-stakes court hearing Friday also featured an appearance by an attorney representing Trump, Joanna Hendon.

Assistant US Attorney Tom McKay accused Mr Cohen of invoking "wildly overbroad" claims of attorney-client privilege to avoid the disclosure of thousands of allegedly privileged communications related to the President and other cases.

Nicholasville's TK McKamy is up for video of the year at the 2018 ACM Awards for Thomas Rhett's "Marry Me". The photo shows Underwood wearing a wrist brace; her face doesn't appear to look any different.

Cohen used the same pseudonyms in a non-disclosure agreement between Broidy and the Playmate that he used in a similar agreement that involved Trump and Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. The president's lawyers have said they want to review the documents that were confiscated.

Michael Cohen, the personal attorney for Donald Trump, is again denying allegations that he visited Prague in summer 2016, as the infamous Steele dossier alleges.

Cohen has admitted making the payment to Daniels and said he paid from his own pocket from a personal home equity loan.

A private sidebar then took place, and members of the press asked US District Judge Kimba Wood to make a transcript of that conversation public.

The article stated, "Investigators have traced evidence that Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany", and acknowledged the attorney denies he's ever been to the Eastern European nation. On Tuesday, he tweeted that "attorney-client privilege is dead!" Her firm, Spears & Imes, was retained on Wednesday, she said, adding that she'd had just two hours notice of the arguments.

Hendon said that "given the interest at stake and the exceptional nature of my client" it was important for everyone that the process be done "scrupulously, so that it is not subject to taint complaints later, and so that it withstands scrutiny for all time". The judge requested that Cohen be present in court on Monday.
