She says she had an affair with Trump.

The revelation comes amid a courtroom drama that unfolded Friday, as Cohen's attorneys and Trump's attorneys began a fight hours before with the US Attorney's Office in Manhattan over a massive raid of Cohen's records.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has until Monday morning to produce the names of his clients, with proof of their relationship, or face having the temporary restraining order his attorneys were in court seeking Friday tossed by U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood of the Southern District of NY.

Cohen's lawyers will need to turn over the requested material by 10 a.m. Monday, and court will reconvene at 2 p.m. -with Cohen himself seated at the counsel's table. Authorities revealed that they searched a number of email accounts used by Cohen.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen is under criminal investigation for his "personal business dealings", the Justice Department said today. But because Cohen is so closely connected to Trump, the development apparently has the president bracing for the worst, The New York Times reported on Friday.

Cohen has not commented to ABC News about the criminal investigation. Hendon, that claimed she was hired by Trump day, urged Wood maybe not to decide that gets got right up until after she files a short while by Sunday 33, inspection documents that were seized.

Investigators can examine attorney-client work that falls within the purview of the Cohen criminal probe, but a separate Justice Department review is typically required in order to protect attorney-client privilege.

Seahawks postpone visit after Colin Kaepernick won't say if he'll stop kneeling
It's getting harder and harder for NFL teams to claim not signing Colin Kaepernick is exclusively a football decision. Kaepernick has been a free agent since last March when the 49ers did not pick up his contract option.

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are investigating whether any crimes were committed as part of an effort by Cohen to squelch damaging stories about Trump when Trump was a presidential candidate, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Also, there are reports Cohen has told people Trump is his only client, which if true would mean he didn't have privilege with any of his other communications or recordings either.

"The government is investigating whether there was, in connection with Trump's White House bid, a conspiracy to commit fraud and extortion for the goal of silencing potentially compromising sources - specifically, people in a position to portray Donald Trump as a womanizer", McCarthy, a senior fellow at the National Review Institute, said.

The judge heard from a brand new attorney for Trump Hendon, that said the president needed "an attention&rdquo".

But Cohen's lawyer told The New York Times the Federal Bureau of Investigation searched Cohen's office, at least in part, because of a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, fixer and longtime friend reportedly would often quip about having a rather poor grade point average in law school, according to a former classmate.

Daniels, the adult film star whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, is seeking to have a 2016 settlement agreement that her lawyer calls a "hush agreement" tossed out, in part, because Trump didn't sign it. Daniels received $130,000 under the agreement, facilitated by Cohen through a company, Essential Consultants, LLC, that he set up for the payment. For more than a decade, Trump has unleashed Cohen on his foes - investigative journalists, business rivals and potential litigants.
