NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 16: Adult film actress Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford) prepares to leave Federal Court with her lawyer Michael Avenatti (L) at the United States District Court Southern District of New York after a hearing related to Michael Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal attorney and confidante, April 16, 2018 in New York City. Cohen and lawyers representing President Trump are asking the court to block Justice Department officials from reading documents and materials related to his Cohen's relationship with President Trump that they believe should be protected by attorney-client privilege. Officials with the FBI, armed with a search warrant, raided Cohen's office and two private residences last week. (Photo by Yana Paskova/Getty Images) MORE LESS
