Hearing related to Federal Bureau of Investigation raid at Trump lawyer's office is set

Raid on Trump's Lawyer Sought Records on 'Access Hollywood' Tape

The corridors of power in the White House and the United States are agog with rumors. But a group of bi-partisan senators introduced a bill Tuesday that would protect the special counsel if the president moves to fire him.

Clifford's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was in the audience for the court session and asked the judge to be heard at 2 p.m. And they help explain why Mr. Trump was furious about the raid.

Ordinarily, documents or communications seized from a lawyer by FBI agents would be reviewed by a team of Justice Department lawyers not directly involved in the investigation to determine which documents were relevant to the probe, and which should be off-limits to investigators because of attorney-client privilege.

As the president's right-hand man, Cohen also has intimate knowledge of some of Trump's most closely guarded secrets related to his personal conduct and financial dealings.

Lawyers for President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, are appearing in Manhattan federal court Friday morning in a hearing to challenge the government's recent seizure of documents. There were no other women beyond Daniels and McDougal named in the warrant in regard to the President, the source said.

At the same time, Stoltenberg expressed his conviction that those responsible for chemical attacks must be held to account. It demanded that military action stop "immediately and without delay".

Trump's "attorney-client privilege is no different" than any other citizen, McKay said.

"When you're a star, they let you do it", Trump says in the video, speaking to "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush. "The retention of such privileged information from the President presents not only routine attorney-client privilege and attorney work product issues, but also creates constitutional concerns regarding officers of the Executive Branch rummaging through the private and privileged papers of the President".

In addition to seizing documents related to women who claimed to have affairs with the president, investigators were also looking for records relating to the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape. Both women say they had affairs with Trump.

Prosecutors are interested in whether Cohen, who had no official role in the 2016 campaign, co-ordinated with it to quash the release of anything detrimental to it and whether that violated campaign finance laws - a new front in the investigation into Cohen.

The interest in Cohen's communications with Trump suggests that the investigation is delving into the president's actions, legal experts said.
