Trump's former lawyer seeks restraining order against Stormy Daniels' lawyer

Trump added that he "always liked Michael", though he said he hasn't "spoken to Michael in a long time".

He also says Cohen is no longer his lawyer.

Cohen's home, office, and hotel room were raided in April by federal prosecutors investigating possible wire fraud and campaign finance crimes related to a $130,000 payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels in separate civil litigation against Cohen and Trump, on Friday tweeted that the encrypted messages and reconstructed documents "could pose a huge problem for Mr. Cohen and ultimately Mr. Trump".

President Trump's longtime personal attorney is allegedly changing lawyers after a deadline this week on which Federal Bureau of Investigation documents seized fall under attorney-client privilege; Rick Leventhal reports.

Prosecutors agreed to extend that deadline by 10 days, if the judge approves. Trump has said he never had an affair with Daniels. The review is to determine which materials should be withheld from prosecutors because of attorney-client privilege.

The deadline extension comes as Cohen, under severe financial pressure, has chose to split with his current team and hire new lawyers, according to a person familiar with the case.

He wants a judge to sign a restraining order that would prohibit Avenatti from speaking with reporters or publicly releasing details about the case.

Friday, Otero said that Cohen " has not demonstrated in the Application that immediate, irreparable injury would occur in the absence of emergency ex parte relief".

The probe into Cohen stems in part from a referral by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether there was any coordination between associates of Trump's 2016 election campaign and Russian Federation. 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 judge reminded the parties Friday that requests for emergency orders "are exclusively for extraordinary relief and are discouraged".

Jones and Cohen's attorneys have already reviewed an initial collection of data from two phones and an iPad.
