Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidante who is under criminal investigation by the Department of Justice for his business dealings, has been ordered to disclose his client list by Monday, Politico reports.

Cohen’s home and office were raided last Monday by the FBI, and among the materials sought by investigators were records relating to payments made to adult-film star Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, and former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Both women have allege sexual liaisons with Trump in the past, though the president has said the claims are untrue.

Cohen’s lawyers have since tried to stop federal prosecutors from getting into the private material by citing attorney-client privilege, but U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood on Friday ordered them to hand over a list of his clients and proof of their relationship so she can decide on whether the material should be protected.

Prosecutors challenged Cohen's claims of attorney-client privilege.  

“Cohen’s claim that he has confidential communications with multiple clients appears to be exaggerated. For example, Cohen has told at least one witness that he has only one client — President Trump,” prosecutors wrote in a court filing.

“Cohen apparently rarely emailed with President Trump, and has identified no other clients with whom he has an attorney-client relationship,” they said.
