Trump acknowledges that Cohen represented him in Daniels case

Cohen's lawyer wants Daniels case delayed

In a new court filing regarding the Michael Cohen case, federal prosecutors withdrew their objection to an appointed special master reviewing seized documents, citing statements made by President Donald Trump earlier on Thursday. "I have nothing to do with his business", Trump said. He's got a business.

She said Trump's comments also demonstrate why he shouldn't give an interview to Mueller.

During an interview on Thursday with the Fox News morning show "Fox & Friends", Trump said Cohen handled a "tiny, tiny fraction" of his "overall legal work".

"President Trump, I assume you know you will be treated fairly here and of course, asked tough, but fair questions", Baier said. Earlier this month, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's home, office and a hotel room where he had been staying and seized records relating to numerous issues, including Cohen's work on Trump's behalf to negotiate the settlement with Daniels. "You know, from what I see, he did absolutely nothing wrong".

Ms. Jones served on the district court for 16 years, and before that worked as a federal prosecutor in the United States attorney's office for the Southern District of NY, the same office that is now investigating Mr. Cohen. Asked what he got her, Trump said he had better not saybecause "maybe I didn't get her so much", adding: "I got her a lovely card".

"Cohen was either representing Trump on the payment and Trump knew about it, or Cohen was representing Trump but kept him in the dark on the payment and paid it out of his own pocket without reimbursement", Cramer said.

The revelation, which came after Cohen asserted his Fifth Amendment rights in the matter, was just one snippet of a rambling, half-hour long phone interview on "Fox & Friends", during which the President railed against the Federal Bureau of Investigation and his own Justice Department, rehashed issues involving Hillary Clinton during the presidential campaign and addressed plans for a summit with the North Korean leader.

"Maybe I didn't get her so much", said the multimillionaire, suggesting he got a card and some flowers.

But then Trump explained just what legal work Cohen has done for him - and it doesn't square with his earlier story. "You'll have to ask Michael".

"An interview like this can never help you legally", Dershowitz said.

Avenatti represents Daniels in a civil case in California, in which she's seeking to invalidate the confidentiality agreement she signed before the election.

One reason, they wrote, was that it has become clear how few legal clients Cohen has.

"From what I understand", he said, "they're looking at his businesses".

Ironically, on the campaign trail Mr Trump said innocent people don't plead the fifth, and that it was only for "mobsters".

Mr Trump has denied having an affair with Ms Daniels or any knowledge of a US$130,000 payment made by Mr Cohen to Ms Daniels before the 2016 USA election. He said Wednesday that he would assert his constitutional right against self-incrimination in that case.
