Federal Bureau of Investigation has obtained encrypted messages from Michael Cohen’s phones: Prosecutors

Stormy's lawyer uses prop in Cohen debate

The order would block Avenatti from speaking to the press regarding the adult film star's lawsuit against the president, stating that Avenatti's "unquenchable thirst for publicity" could cost Cohen the right to a fair trial.

The deadline extension comes as Cohen, under severe financial pressure, has chose to split with his current team and hire new lawyers, according to a person familiar with the case.

The cases is Clifford v. Trump, 18-cv-2217, U.S. District Court, Central District of California (Los Angeles).

"The statement by the USAO that the Federal Bureau of Investigation has recovered 16 pages of shredded documents and 731 encrypted messages may be ominous for Michael Cohen", Mitchell Epner, an attorney at Rottenberg Lipman Rich who was previously an assistant USA attorney for the District of New Jersey, told Business Insider.

Cohen was granted a 90-days delay of the case by a federal judge in April amid his other problems, including the FBI raid of his home and office.

Investigators restored 16 pages of documents found in the shredder of Michael Cohen, Donald Trump's former lawyer, and recovered 731 pages of messages sent on encrypted platforms, including WhatsApp and Signal.

"Michael Cohen, I think, would tell you he's got nothing incriminating with the president", Giuliani said Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "The Ingraham Angle".

Earlier Friday, Trump was asked whether he was concerned that Cohen would "flip" on him, or provide damaging information on the president to prosecutors in exchange for a favorable deal. US District Judge Kimba Wood had imposed a Friday deadline for Cohen's team to finish its review of roughly 2.4 million documents it had yet to sift through.

Avenatti has "repeatedly denigrated Mr. Cohen, predicted that Mr. Cohen would be indicted for bank fraud, wire fraud, campaign finance violations, and accused Mr. Cohen of hiring a 'thug" to allegedly threaten Ms. Clifford, ' the filing said.

Avenatti described the motion for the gag order as a "complete joke and baseless".

"For over 12 yrs, Mr. Cohen and his boss Mr. Trump have routinely tried to "shut people up" and hide the truth through intimidation & threats". The judge reminded the parties Friday that requests for emergency orders "are exclusively for extraordinary relief and are discouraged".

Otero declined to grant Cohen emergency relief, setting a briefing schedule Friday that begins in late June.
