Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen under criminal investigation

Special counsel Robert Mueller has evidence showing that President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, visited Prague during August or September of 2016, McClatchy reported Friday.

Federal prosecutors on Friday said President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen is the target of a "months-long" criminal investigation that centers on Cohen's own business dealings rather than his legal work on Trump's behalf.

Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen exits a hotel in NY on Friday. "They describe the documents as thousands, if not millions, of pages of documents subject to the attorney-client privilege, including audio recordings". They allegedly discussed a "coverup and damage limitation operation in an attempt to prevent the full details of Trump's relationship with Russian Federation being exposed", and discussed how to make "deniable cash payments" to "Romanian hackers".

Cohen is due to appear in federal court on Monday in connection with a raid this week on his NY office and home by agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation that was based in part on a referral from Mueller.

In their filing opposing Cohen's request for a restraining order, prosecutors redacted the specific crimes they suspect Cohen of having committed but indicated they involve "acts of concealment" and fraud.

A court filing did not detail what Cohen is under investigation for.

Records related to Cohen's taxi medallion business were also sought. In response, prosecutors said they have set up a "taint team" to review documents before attorneys working on the case can access them.

It also could undercut President Trump's longstanding claim that "there is no evidence of collusion" with Moscow in the campaign.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing Daniels, said it's "very possible" the adult-film actress would show up at Monday's hearing, according to The Associated Press. He declined to say whether Daniels has met with investigators but told reporters he and his client are "fully cooperating" with the U.S. Attorney's Office.
