For Trump, lawyer probe a bigger threat

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.

It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the presidency.

Federal prosecutors said in a court filing Friday that the criminal probe that led them to raid the offices of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is focused on the attorney's "personal business dealings" and has been going on for months. In an interview Sunday with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union", Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti said that Daniels will be attending Cohen's court hearing.

On Friday, Cohen's lawyers went to federal court to try to stop prosecutors from looking at materials seized in the raid, which they claim are subject to attorney-client privilege.

Trump's tweet on the matter comes nearly a week after Cohen was raided, with the president having previously made it clear he was deeply unhappy about the raid.

Last August, an attorney for Cohen, Stephen Ryan, delivered to Congress a point-by-point rebuttal of the dossier's allegations.

Cohen did not instantly respond to a petition comment.

The Steele dossier is not only crucial because of all the salacious and sordid details about the president but also because it revealed the extent of supposed ties between members of the Trump campaign and officials in Moscow, which prompted the FBI to launch an investigation and conclude Russian government indeed interfered during the 2016 presidential election.

Cohen has publicly declared that he would defend the President to the end. "The President has maintained there's no collusion with Russian Federation". This month, Kosachev was among 24 high-profile Russians whom the US sanctioned in retaliation for Russia's meddling. President Trump similarly dismissed the allegation as false.

Of Trump, McKay said: "His attorney-client privilege is no greater than any other person who seeks legal advice".

If Cohen is claiming to have made the transaction on behalf of his friend and long-time client Trump, the situation could be seen by Mueller and those investigating the Trump campaign as a "coordinated, illegal, in kind contribution by Cohen for the objective of influencing the election", Potter said. She alone decided that she did not want to continue with the pregnancy and I offered to help her financially during this hard period.
