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

Published

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.”

"It's very important to talk about corruption," Trump. "If you don't talk about corruption, why would you give money to a country that you think is corrupt?...It's very important that on occasion you speak to somebody about corruption."

Trump’s jumbled response to Ukraine scandal is a strong signal of what’s to come: columnist

On Monday, President Donald Trump denied allegations that he extorted the president of Ukraine for information about Joe Biden. “It’s a ridiculous story,” Trump said during an appearance at the United Nations.

The controversy emerged after an anonymous whistleblower in the intelligence community logged a complaint with their agency about improper behavior by the president on a phone call with a foreign leader. “It’s a partisan whistleblower,” the president added.

Previously, the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani had traveled to Ukraine to dig up dirt on Joe Biden. Critics worry that during a conversation with the president of Ukraine about rooting out corruption in his country, Trump suggested he offer information about Biden in exchange for funding.
