Stormy Daniels may confront Michael Cohen in court on Monday — and she’s looking into suing him for wiretapping

Michael Cohen was not in court on Friday, instead hanging out on the sidewalk with cigar-smoking buddies on a sunny New York day.

That was a problem because his lawyers could not answer “the most basic questions,” about the Trump fixer’s practice, according to Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti.

“The judge became fairly frustrated and ultimately ordered Michael Cohen to court Monday at 2 pm,” Avenatti said. “If he’s going to skip court he should not be photographed out on the stoop, if you will, with his buddies.”

That means that Avenatti’s client, Stormy Daniels, has a chance to confront the man who she’s been tangling with. Since the subject is so important to her, she may show up.

“We haven’t decided if she’s going to attend Monday at 2 o’clock,” Avenatti said. “She feels very passionately about this case and wants to make sure that these documents are handed appropriately… it’s a pretty important issue for her.”

Avenatti also said he’s concerned that Cohen’s newly revealed habit of taping people on the phone may give rise to another cause of action.

“We are very, very concerned, with each passing day, with the information that’s coming out,” he said. “If we discover that, in fact, Michael Cohen recorded either our client or her lawyer, Kith Davidson, we are goign to be bringing another claim against Michael Cohen for wiretapping.”

West Virginia voter: ‘I’ll probably vote for Donald Trump’ because ‘he keeps the people to the TV set’

A group of West Virginia voters explained their voting choices to MSNBC on Monday.

"I don't have TV, I don't have internet," one woman said. "I'm pretty far behind. And I bet you a lot of around here are because we're poor. I don't know nothing about Joe [Biden]. I ain't never heard nothing about him at all. Donald Trump, I know a little bit about him because of the past couple of years."

"I'll probably vote for Donald Trump," Jeff Kibbey told MSNBC. "He keeps the people to the TV set."

"One, Trump is good," Francis Senter insisted. "Biden -- however you pronounce his name -- is good too. But like I say, I can't judge either one of them. It's the same community it ain't never going to change because if it was going to change it wouldn't look like this right here."

On Tuesday, BuzzFeed News reported that Patriot Front, a white supremacist group formed from the collapse of groups that participated in the Charlottesville neo-Nazi riots, is preparing for civil unrest as they believe President Donald Trump's re-election is a lost cause.

"BuzzFeed News has received a cache of hundreds of messages exchanged by Patriot Front members on Rocket.Chat, an encrypted group messaging app," reported Jane Lytvynenko. "In logs of the chats, all from this year, around 280 members of the group discuss grandiose goals — creating a white ethnostate from the existing United States. The group wants to expel immigrants, people of color, and Jews, remaking the fabric of America."
