Trump distances self from Michael Cohen as raided docs are analyzed

According to Cohen's filing, Avenatti has appeared on television more than 120 times and tweeted about the case almost 500 times since becoming Daniels's lawyer.

She notes that her husband is now being represented by a team of eight attorneys in the case being held in Travis County, Texas, with one of his lawyers being Wallace B. Jefferson, a former chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court.

"The court rightfully shot down the request for emergency relief because there was never any basis for it", Avenatti said in an email.

"Mr. Avenatti's actions are mainly driven by his seemingly unquenchable thirst for publicity", Cohen's attorney, Brent Blakely, said in a filing late Thursday in federal court in Los Angeles.

Amazon, changes to revenue sharing reshape EPL broadcasting
The giant online retailer will show 20 Premier League matches a season for three years, starting from the 2019/20 season. The deal is an important milestone for Amazon, but it represents only a fraction of the larger Premier League pie.

Cohen is the focus of an investigation in the Southern District of NY into whether he violated campaign-finance laws or committed bank fraud, wire fraud, illegal lobbying, or other crimes. The motion claims that Avenatti has "repeatedly denigrated Mr. Cohen, predicted that Mr. Cohen would be indicted for bank fraud, wire fraud, campaign finance violations, and accused Mr. Cohen of hiring a "thug" to allegedly threaten Ms. Clifford".

In April, Cohen's hotel room and offices were raided by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents after prosecutors in New York City were given information about him by special counsel Robert Mueller. Cohen at first denied the payment but later he and the POTUS acknowledged that Trump eventually paid back Cohen for personally taking care of the issue. "Reporters, judges, adversaries, attys", he said in a Friday tweet. Under the supervision of a retired federal judge acting as a "special master", the files are being scrutinized by Cohen's attorneys for items potentially covered by attorney-client privilege. "It would change your conduct". He adds, Avenatti's also tweeted 439 times about him or the case!

The feds have reconstructed the contents of one of Michael Cohen's shredders - 16 pages' worth - and extracted 731 pages of encrypted messages from his phones in their probe of the former President Trump lawyer, it was revealed Friday. The judge reminded the parties Friday that requests for emergency orders "are exclusively for extraordinary relief and are discouraged".

Judge James Otero of the US District Court for the Central District of California set a briefing for later this month, after which he'll make a final decision on the restraining order request.
