Michael Cohen is barely even a lawyer

Cohen was photographed outside the Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue in New York City on Friday.

Judge Wood delayed until Monday a hearing in which Cohen's attorneys will argue for a restraining order to temporarily ban federal prosecutors from inspecting the records.

Investigators have also looked for a possible broader pattern of fraud, tax evasion, money laundering and other crimes in Cohen's private dealings, including his work for Trump and real estate purchased by Russian buyers.

According to The New York Times, which previously reported the story, the phone call took place as both men's attorneys began a courtroom battle with the US Attorney's Office in Manhattan over the raid of Cohen's office and home on Monday.

Federal investigators confirmed on Friday that Cohen is indeed under criminal investigation. Both women said they had consensual relationships with Trump long before he was elected president. Only attorney-client materials are shielded by the privilege - and then there are exceptions involving crime or fraud - and prosecutors say they have not recovered any communications between Cohen and Trump.

The prosecutors noted Cohen had personally not turned over any documents to Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation. Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, declined to comment on Friday morning.

Cohen is known to tape conversations with associates and store them, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

The filing came in response to Cohen's effort to block prosecutors from reviewing documents seized in searches of his home and office on Monday.

President Trump's advisers have concluded that a wide-ranging corruption investigation into his personal lawyer poses a greater and more imminent threat to the president than even the special counsel's investigation, according to several people close to Mr. Trump. The filter team is working from a list of individuals and companies they've compiled regarding people who aren't Cohen's legal clients.

"As a privilege holder, he [Trump] has an acute interest in those proceedings and the manner in which these materials are reviewed", Hendon said, asking Judge Kimba Wood at the US District Court for the Southern District of NY to postpone the hearing until next Monday.

Following the hearing Friday, the judge ordered the parties to return to court Monday for another hearing, where Cohen will have to be present. She says she had an affair with Trump.

Though Wood ultimately granted Cohen's team additional time, she referred to the prosecution's concerns as "well-taken".

"It is common for a civil case to be stayed under these circumstances, and that is what we will be requesting of the US District Court tomorrow", Blakely said in an email.

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

Accordingly, they argue, most of the material seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation does not involve attorney-client privilege and could figure in a future court case.

"Prosecutors claimed that they need to be allowed to work with their own & ldquo; & rdquo, taint team; or & ldquo; filter team", to do the project.
