"I think Monday afternoon could prove to be interesting", attorney Michael Avenatti said on CNN's "State of the Union".

In a hearing in the wake of a federal raid on his office, home, and hotel room, prosecutors in the Southern District of NY revealed Friday that Cohen is a subject in a months-long criminal investigation, reportedly focused at least in part on his role in arranging a nondisclosure deal and $130,000 payout to Stormy Daniels.

The audio has the potential to shed significant new light on the hush money Cohen paid Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. election, which she alleges was to stay silent about an extramarital affair with Trump, which Trump and Cohen deny.

According to Potter, whether President Trump paid Cohen back still renders the initial payment an illegal campaign contribution. This month, Kosachev was among 24 high-profile Russians whom the USA sanctioned in retaliation for Russia's meddling.

He continued to struggle to hire a new criminal lawyer, and some of his own aides were reluctant to advise him about a response for fear of being dragged into a criminal investigation themselves.

"Not at all. It's meant to send the message that this is a very, very serious matter for her and she wants to make sure that the American people know that she's behind efforts to bring to light as much information and documents as possible", he said.
