White House spokesman: 'Last I've heard' Cohen is still Trump's attorney

When the allegations surfaced, Cohen flatly denied them: "I have never to Prague in my life", he tweeted, along with a photo of the front of his passport.

And the raid, which Cohen's lawyer said came following a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, appears to have further soured the president's view of Mueller, with Trump's post-raid comments prompting fears the president was looking into dismissing Mueller.

Lawyers representing President Trump and his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen will be back in court Monday in an attempt to stop federal prosecutors from accessing material that they claim is protected by attorney client privilege.

Cohen's offices were raided by federal investigators earlier this week over allegations of bank fraud and campaign-finance violations.

"Bad reporting, bad information and bad story", Cohen tweeted, calling out the reporter behind the story by name.

Trump, campaign and White House officials have repeatedly denied that the campaign colluded with Russians to tip the election in Trump's favor.

Harrisburg first responders quickly got a house fire under control on Sunday, containing the damage to one area of the home. Flames were already breaking through the roof over a garage that was converted to a living space.

In the scenario reported by McClatchy, investigators have found evidence Cohen entered the Czech Republic through Germany in the Schengen Area, where the borders are open.

One of the biggest unconfirmed claims made in the controversial dossier written by former British spy Christopher Steele is that Cohen traveled to Prague in 2016 to meet with a representative from the Kremlin to discuss Russia's meddling in the US presidential election. Cohen's contacts on the project came as Trump was on the campaign trail, falsely insisting he had no business interests in Russian Federation.

"It's meant to send the message that this is a serious matter for her and she wants to make sure that the American people know that she is behind efforts to bring to light as much information and documents as possible", Avenatti said.

Other staffers at the Trump Organization have been further tied to the payments made by Cohen.

The judge said prosecutors believed either a special "taint team" of government lawyers should decide what evidence can be properly viewed by criminal prosecutors.

When Trump took office, Cohen became Trump's personal attorney.

The judge also heard a request from Michael Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer, to weigh in on the files because they likely involved her, and the judge consented.
