Trump says Michael Cohen is not his lawyer

CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues reported Thursday that Cohen is feeling isolated and believes Mr. Trump and his allies are turning against him, as pressure for him to cooperate with federal authorities continues. The prosecutors said in their filing in Manhattan federal court that they had turned the materials over to Cohen's lawyers, who are expected to review them by June 25.

The request comes as Cohen's legal troubles are mounting in Manhattan, where he's the subject of a wide-ranging criminal investigation triggered in part by revelations in the California case, including the $130,000 payment to Clifford.

"No, he's not my lawyer anymore, but I always liked Michael".

Trump said he wasn't anxious at all.

He wrote that Times reporters were 'going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will "flip"'.

In a free-wheeling interview Friday on the White House's north lawn, the president said he's not anxious about the prospects that Cohen will cooperate. In April, Cohen and his lawyers successfully argued for the appointment of a special master, allowing them, Trump's attorneys, and the Trump Organization to identify documents protected by attorney-client privilege that could not be used in a potential prosecution.

President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen's seen about 120 too many TV appearances by Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti.so he's begging a judge to make him stop talking. The motion claims that Avenatti has "repeatedly denigrated Mr. Cohen, predicted that Mr. Cohen would be indicted for bank fraud, wire fraud, campaign finance violations, and accused Mr. Cohen of hiring a "thug" to allegedly threaten Ms. Clifford".

'Mr. Avenatti's actions are mainly driven by his seemingly unquenchable thirst for publicity, ' it added.

Under the procedure set by Judge Wood, Cohen's team is doing an initial review of the files.

Avenatti posted Otero's order on his Twitter feed, where he had called the gag order request a 'complete joke and baseless'.

Prosecutors in NY said in a court filing later Friday that they are still processing material seized from Cohen in an April raid. At a recent hearing, Wood told Avenatti that if he wanted to be admitted to the case, he would be required to cease his "publicity tour".
