Federal investigators in NY are looking into years' worth of Cohen's business dealings, as well as lawyering he did for Trump as his longtime personal attorney, fixer, and confidant.
Michael Cohen has resumed tweeting following the Federal Bureau of Investigation raiding his office, home, and hotel room on Monday. They said Cohen has told at least one witness that his only client was Trump.
Michael Cohen is a fraud of a lawyer who works exclusively for President Trump, federal prosecutors charged Friday.
Avenatti spoke outside the court at Friday's hearing and then followed with a suggestive tweet that "the weather forecast for Monday looks very Stormy".
Cohen's lawyers apparently want to go over the documents and tapes and shield from prosecutors any they deem privileged.
Cohen, who has denied wrongdoing, has been at the center of a controversy surrounding a $130,000 payment to Daniels.
Donald Trump promises to protect states with legalized marijuana
Gardner noted that Trump had stated during his campaign that he had supported states' rights to decide how to approach marijuana. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the conversation between Gardner and Trump.

Uber's new transit plan: electric bikes, rental cars and subway fares
Uber previously said it considers bicycles and public transportation as a way to cut down on environmental and traffic congestion. But the incident raised questions not only about the capabilities of autonomous vehicles, but also about Uber's safety culture.
But Cohen has presented no evidence that he was in Los Angeles at the time in question, and his claim that he's "never been to Prague" directly contradicts his previous public statements. Trump's advisers are said to be anxious about whether the recordings touched on any matters related to the president.
But Cohen's lawyers could not immediately say how many clients - or how many documents covered by attorney-client privilege - were at stake, and prosecutors accused Cohen of trying to stall the investigation.
The Cohen episode has clearly rattled the president, even beyond his usual fragile mental state.
Friday's hearing was marked by multiple private conversations between the lawyers and the judge.
But "the attorney-client privilege can't at the same time be used as a sword and as a shield", McKay told Wood. Avenatti said he thinks that some of the documents obtained from the Cohen search relate to his client. When he introduced himself to the judge to ask to be heard, Wood seemed to indicate that she was already aware of his identity. The warrant sought information about that payment along with any information that connected Cohen with efforts to suppress disclosure of Trump's alleged affair with Playboy model Karen McDougal. Justice Department regulations require prosecutors to have a "taint team" not involved in the underlying investigation to sift through seized materials and make sure prosecutors don't see things that aren't relevant or are protected by lawyer-client privilege.
Stephen Ryan, a lawyer for Mr. Cohen, referred to his earlier description of the raid as "completely inappropriate and unnecessary".
Federal authorities did not specify exactly what they're investigating, but reports after his hotel, office, and home were raided suggest authorities are looking at potential bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance violations.
