Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and current lawyer for U.S. President Donald Trump.

Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani insisted the president is "clean as a whistle" and has nothing to fear from Michael Cohen cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into collusion with Russian Federation.

Brent Blakely, an attorney for Cohen, argues in court documents filed in Los Angeles that Avenatti has tainted the case with a "publicity tour" that included over 100 television interviews in the last three months and that he's "mainly driven by his seemingly unquenchable thirst for publicity".

Defendant Michael Cohen ("Mr. Cohen") will and hereby does move ex parte for an order restraining Plaintiff's counsel of record, Michael Avenatti, from communicating with the pros and/or public regarding the merits of this case.

She argues the agreement should be nullified because Cohen signed it, but the president did not. But he is now reportedly breaking with his lawyers, fueling speculation that he is ready to cooperate with prosecutors and flip on Trump, though this is unconfirmed.

A federal judge agreed in April to delay the case for 90 days after Cohen argued that the criminal investigation overlapped with issues in the lawsuit and his right against self-incrimination would be adversely affected because he won't be able to respond and defend himself. "The reality is, they're trying to frighten him".
