Cohen filing: he gave legal advice last year to 3 clients: DT, Broidy, and a mystery client

whom he didn't name.

This should be interesting because the judge told him on Friday he needed to name his clients.

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, says he gave legal advice to three clients in the past year, including the president and Elliott Broidy, former deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Cohen declined to identify the third client in a filing in Manhattan federal court, where he will appear Monday at a hearing to determine whether federal prosecutors can review materials seized in an FBI raid on his office, home and hotel room last week.

The judge had ordered Cohen to identify his clients by Monday morning and to appear in court. One of those clients was Broidy, who resigned from the RNC on Friday after it was disclosed that he paid $1.6 million to a Playboy Playmate with whom he had an extramarital affair. She became pregnant and chose to have an abortion. Cohen negotiated the nondisclosure agreement with the woman.

Cohen also identified lawyers at five different firms who have provided legal advice to him in the past year. In the filing, Cohen’s lawyers said they should review the seized material before prosecutors, or a neutral attorney should do so and report to the judge. They said the dispute was over “perhaps the most highly publicized search warrant” in recent history.
