Cohen attorney assails Stormy Daniels' lawyer; judge sets deadline for document review

Michael Avenatti's "publicity tour" and harsh comments about Michael Cohen risk tainting a jury if a criminal case is brought against President Donald Trump's longtime lawyer, a judge said.

The invoice ends on April 30, the same day as a scheduled meeting with the parties involved in the suit, including Cohen and the government, but also attorneys for President Donald Trump, for whom Cohen worked as a personal lawyer, and the Trump Organization, both of which Wood has allowed into the case as intervenors. And that evidence didn't quite augur well for Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti.

Ryan further argued that Avenatti should be barred from the proceedings by pointing out that Avenatti's former law firm was ordered by a bankruptcy court last week to pay $10m to a former partner.

Wood said at the hearing Wednesday that she had to balance the needs of lawyers for Cohen and Trump with the needs of criminal prosecutors.

"I don't know if we can make that", Ryan told Wood, who stuck to the deadline despite the objections from Cohen's team. Daniels, a porn star whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Trump and Cohen over the nondisclosure agreement she signed related the $130,000 payment she signed before the 2016 election over her claims she had an affair with Trump.

Federal prosecutors additionally revealed for the primary time that among the many objects seized Cohen final months was a shredding machine, the contents of that are among the many exclusively objects that the federal government has not but turned over to the particular grasp or Cohen's authorized workforce.

"It was a premeditated drive-by shooting of my client's rights", Ryan said.

Wood appointed Barbara Jones, a former federal judge, as special master to go over the documents before they are turned over to federal prosecutors.

After the court hearing, Avenatti withdrew his request to join the case. "And also, we have every reason to believe that the tapes include communications between Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen that don't have anything to do with the rendering of legal advice".

Avenatti made the statements after Cohen's lawyers told the judge that Egan Avenatti had been hit with a $10 million judgement in bankruptcy court tied to allegations that the firm owed money to a lawyer - and misstated its profits in order to avoid paying up.

She said lawyers for Cohen, Trump and the Trump Organization had made 252 total privilege designations from materials produced by the government on May 8 and May 9.

"It's never a good idea to be recording conversations, period, especially if you are an attorney, especially if you're dealing with sensitive information", Avenatti said.

He also didn't have a microphone, so he had to get up and walk across the courtroom to stand at the podium any time he wanted to address Judge Kimba M. Wood, the federal district court judge presiding over the matter. "I want you to participate, or not be in the matter at all", Wood said.

"We've got a whole host of information that we are going to be releasing relating to Mr. Cohen and relating to Mr. Trump, so they better buckle up", he said.

Cohen's attorneys have earlier expressed their desire for Avenatti to not be admitted into the case, which he is seeking to do on Daniels' behalf.

"Not even the same firm in the case", he said.

Cohen has been under investigation for potential bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance law violations for months.
