Michael Cohen's Attorney Tells Judge Client Could Be Indicted in 90 Days

Davidson negotiated a confidentiality agreement with Cohen in October 2016 on behalf of Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, for which she was paid $130,000.

Blakely said that Cohen could be indicted within 90 days, pointing to a previous statement from Daniels's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, to that effect, CNN reported.

Cohen had his office, home and hotel room raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation last week, with agents seizing documents related to the $130,000 payment he made to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

The lawyers said letting Daniels' case proceed could impair Cohen's constitutional right under the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination. Cohen filed the state claims against Buzzfeed and federal claims against Fusion GPS in their respective courts in Manhattan, after the news company published the information in the report by Christopher Steele, at the behest of Fusion GPS, shortly after Trump was elected.

United States has no better friend than Israel
The war turned numerous Palestinians into refugees as they fled or were displaced from what is now Israel. Yeshayahu Gavish; and Racheli Ganot, an ultra-Orthodox who trains haredi women for jobs.

Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Daniels, declined to say before the hearing what he thought might have prompted Cohen's concern about self-incrimination. She argues the agreement is legally invalid because it was only signed by her and Cohen, not by Trump.

"If there's one thing Democrats and Republicans agree on today, it's that the dossier was an important part of the government's investigation into potential collusion between the Trump Campaign and Russia", BuzzFeed News said in a statement.

U.S. District Court Judge James Otero, who stated earlier that a hearing on the question of a stay "is warranted", said Cohen needs to file a statement declaring that his Fifth Amendment rights might be jeopardized if the case goes forward.

Daniels claimed that the non-disclosure agreement was void because Trump did not sign it, and that Cohen defamed her by insinuating publicly that she lied about having an intimate relationship with Trump that she said began in 2006.

Puerto Rico officials say 80% of customers have power after latest blackout
This led to an electrical ground fault that caused the outage of the transmission circuit that caused the island-wide blackout. Army's top engineer said in February that their role was never to completely rebuild the power system.

But Otero said that he needed more time to consider the request because "there's some gaping holes" in it.

The case took on new significance last week when Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's office, hotel and residence.

Trump answered questions about Daniels for the first time earlier this month and said he had no knowledge of the payment made by Cohen and didn't know where Cohen had gotten the money.

Blakely said the agreement had not stopped Daniels from doing interviews with "60 Minutes" and "The View" and that Avenatti had done 53 television appearances, "54 if you count tonight's show with Bill Maher".
