Stormy Daniels' lawyer joins fight over Trump lawyer's files

Mueller has identified the targets, being Trump and those around him, and then set out to find the crimes.
According to the Post, Cohen has held taxi interests as a side business even as he worked for Trump for the last decade. "They" were carrying a warrant that a U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY had sought and a federal judge had approved; they were not burglars in the night.
The U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan made the filing after lawyers for Cohen and Trump asked a judge on Friday to block investigators from reviewing material the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized in a search of Cohen's office and residence on Monday.
The cover comes after the Federal Bureau of Investigation earlier this week raided Cohen's office, seizing emails, documents and records, some of them related to his payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels. After the searches, he stepped up attacks against Mueller's probe before saying on Thursday that he was cooperating with the authorities.
McConnell also tells reporters he doesn't believe Mueller will be removed.
A top fundraiser for President Donald Trump resigned from the Republican National Committee on Friday after it was revealed that he paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate with whom he had an extramarital affair.
Trump, who lashed out on Twitter at Mueller's probe and the Justice Department on Monday evening, met with his lawyers at the White House on Tuesday to discuss the FBI raid, which has confirmed their worst fears - that Mueller's Russian Federation investigation is mushrooming well beyond questions of campaign collusion.
The raid was "upsetting, to say the least", he told CNN.
He continued, "This guy, I think, has been put in a position where he is going to be expected to be the fall guy, the scapegoat".

The White House official said it is unclear if Trump has spoken to Cohen.
Legal expert says a raid on a lawyer's office is used as a last result.
Trump went on to again attack special counsel Robert Mueller, as it appears that Trump is getting close to ordering the Justice Department to fire Mueller. "I've wanted to keep it down", he said, without quite explaining how you keep a man like Mueller "down".
Attorney-client privilege allows clients to discuss their legal troubles with lawyers, protecting them from being incriminated by said correspondence. The upsurge in the class struggle, in the form of teachers' strikes in a whole series of states and a growing rank-and-file rebellion against the corporatist trade unions, is a huge factor in driving the political crisis of American capitalism to a new level of intensity. On Tuesday, he tweeted that "attorney-client privilege is dead!"
The new details on the Cohen raid emerged as the president boiled over on Twitter about it and evidence that investigators are zeroing in on his inner circle.
Trump again classified the Mueller probe, which continues to have bipartisan support, as a "witch hunt".
The raid, in which agents seized attorney Michael Cohen's records on topics including a $130,000 payment to a porn actress who alleges she had sex with Trump, left the president more angry than advisers had seen him in weeks, according to five people familiar with the president's views but not authorized to discuss them publicly.
The extraordinary action, triggered by a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, has secured Cohen's computer, cell phone and personal financial records, as well as a trove of emails and other communications for Mueller's investigation into alleged Russian meddling and Trump campaign collusion. While the reporting isn't crystal clear at this point, most agree this was a referral from the special counsel's office to the Southern District.
It was not carried out by Mr. Mueller's team, but rather handed off to the normal Justice Department chain of command, and carried out by agents and prosecutors from the Southern District of NY.
