Stormy Daniels to attend court hearing for Trump's personal lawyer

His denial was that I was never in Prague.

If such is the case, it might be very problematic for Trump administration as it proves one of the main parts of Christopher Steele's dossier that alleged Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation in the 2016 US presidential elections.

The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump's personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter. 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.

Prosecutors revealed the new details about the Cohen investigation after his lawyer appeared in court seeking to temporarily bar prosecutors from reviewing materials that FBI agents seized in a search this week of Cohen's office, home and hotel room.

Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal lawyer and fixer, tweeted on Saturday that the story was "bad reporting, bad information and [a] bad story".

Cohen has admitted to paying off Stormy Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. election, but denies it was because of an alleged affair between the adult actress and Trump.

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

Cohen has publicly declared that he would defend the President to the end. The plan would have ended USA sanctions imposed on Russia in 2014 in response to its incursion into Ukraine in exchange for minimal Russian concessions.

Essential Consultants LLC was used for the partial payment of a $250,000 fee paid to Cohen for negotiating a non-disclosure agreement with a former Playboy model who claimed she was impregnated by Elliott Broidy, a venture capitalist and former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee.

The prosecutors noted Cohen had personally not turned over any documents to Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation.

Once they've reviewed the records, the filter team can give to the investigators communications "between Cohen and persons with whom Cohen undisputedly does not have an attorney-client relationship", likely meaning the records wouldn't be between Cohen and Trump, prosecutors said.

The judge also heard a request from Michael Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer, to weigh in on the files because they likely involved her, and the judge consented.
