Trump says Michael Cohen is 'not my lawyer anymore'

Michael Cohen Requests Court Order Forcing Stormy Daniels' Attorney to Shut Up

President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen's seen about 120 too many TV appearances by Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti.so he's begging a judge to make him stop talking.

Trump said on Friday that Cohen was no longer his lawyer.

Prosecutors in NY said in a court filing later Friday that they are still processing material seized from Cohen in an April raid. Judge Kimba Wood set a June 15 deadline for Cohen's and Trump's lawyers to finish their review and has appointed a special master to vet their claims of privilege.

Prosecutors agreed to extend that deadline by 10 days, if the judge approves. Trump has repeatedly said there was no collusion, and Russian Federation has denied election meddling.

According to NBC's Katy Tur late Thursday night, "Michael Cohen has just filed an application for a restraining order against Michael Avenatti".

Cohen has filed for a restraining order against porn star Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti is representing her in the case.to prevent him from speaking to the press about the adult film star's lawsuit.

The probe into Cohen stems in part from a referral by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether there was any coordination between associates of Trump's 2016 election campaign and Russian Federation.

The judge also admonished Cohen in a footnote, saying such requests "throw the system out of whack" by creating more work for the court, forcing adversaries to respond in a hurry and allowing some litigants to "cut in line" ahead of others. Cohen's lawyers initially suggested that "thousands, if not millions" of privileged documents had been seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid.

"The government has conferred with counsel for Cohen and the parties jointly proposed to the court that - with the exception of the second Blackberry, from which data has not yet been extracted - all of the foregoing material will be reviewed by Cohen by June 25, 2018", said the letter signed by Robert Khuzami, one of the prosecutors working on the case.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has said she had sex with Trump in 2006 and that Cohen paid her $130,000 to keep the encounter secret, shortly before his election.
