Lawyers for Trump's Personal Attorney Set for Friday Court Appearance

"No matter how many times or ways they write it, I have never been to Prague", he explained.

A lawyer for Cohen, Stephen M Ryan, on Monday said that USA prosecutors conducted a search that was partly a referral by the Office of the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller. 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.

The raids on Cohen came as part of a monthslong federal investigation based in NY, court records show, and were sweeping in their breadth.

"Bad reporting, bad information and bad story by same reporter", he tweeted, addressing the story's author by name. Investigators have also looked for a possible broader pattern of fraud, tax evasion, money laundering and other crimes in Mr Cohen's private dealings, including his work for Mr Trump and real estate purchased by Russian buyers, the person said.

Cohen did not instantly respond to a petition comment.

It's unclear whether Mueller's investigators also have evidence that Cohen met with a prominent Russian - purportedly Konstantin Kosachev, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin - in the Czech capital. This month, Kosachev was among 24 high-profile Russians whom the US sanctioned in retaliation for Russia's meddling. They said Cohen has told at least one witness that his only client was Trump. Prosecutors have said Cohen is under criminal investigation, although no charges have been filed. "Having proof that he was is, for most people, going to be more than enough to say I don't believe anything else he says", said Jill Wine-Banks, a former Watergate prosecutor. Cohen's contacts on the project came as Trump was on the campaign trail, falsely insisting he had no business interests in Russian Federation. The news service, quoting anonymous sources, reports that Mueller can prove Cohen visited Prague in 2016 in the midst of the election.

Other staffers at the Trump Organization have been further tied to the payments made by Cohen.

He added: "She also wants to ensure that she is heard and that she's represented at the hearing".

The filing, signed by acting U.S. Attorney Robert Khuzami in the Southern District of NY, also says that while the current investigation was referred by special counsel Robert Mueller, the NY investigation "has proceeded independent" of Mueller's work.
