Friday, Otero said that Cohen " has not demonstrated in the Application that immediate, irreparable injury would occur in the absence of emergency ex parte relief". "No, he's not my lawyer", the president responded. Cohen worked with Trump for a decade and is the focus of a criminal investigation by NY federal prosecutors.

"No, he's not my lawyer anymore, but I always liked Michael".

With those kinda stats, you could say Avenatti's out-Trumping Trump.

Michael Cohen is telling his friends and family he may cooperate with federal prosecutors investigating him for possible financial crimes, CNN reported Friday.

Trump said on Friday that Cohen was no longer his lawyer. The lawyers designate material they believe is protected by attorney-client privilege or that includes highly personal information, such as medical records.

"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".

Brent H. Blakely, who filed the motion on Cohen's behalf, alleges that since Daniels filed suit, Avenatti has made more than 120 media appearances and issued at least 439 tweets relating to the lawsuit or to Cohen.

'Mr. Avenatti's actions are mainly driven by his seemingly unquenchable thirst for publicity, ' it added. The judge reminded the parties Friday that requests for emergency orders "are exclusively for extraordinary relief and are discouraged".

Avenatti posted Otero's order on his Twitter feed, where he had called the gag order request a 'complete joke and baseless'.

Prosecutors from the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of NY said in the filing that they conferred with Cohen's lawyers and that the parties jointly proposed a June 25 deadline for Cohen's team to review the newly produced documents for privilege designations.

The case is Clifford v Trump et al, U.S. District Court, Central District of California, No. 18-02217.
