Lawyer Says He Consulted Cohen on Schneiderman Accusers

Gleason said he discussed the matter with Steve Dunleavy, a retired New York Post columnist.

Gleason says that he talked to Cohen about the details of the women's cases, and while he doesn't know what kind of records Cohen kept of their communications, he's anxious that the recent raid and current investigation of Cohen could reveal their identities.

Gleason's information could help explain a cryptic September 2013 tweet from Trump about Schneiderman, the former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, and former Gov. Eliot Spitzer.

An attorney has filed a protective order in federal court over certain documents seized from Michael Cohen's office.

Gleason's letter said Dunleavy did discuss the allegations against Mr. Schneiderman, "as evidenced by a phone call I received from Attorney Michael Cohen".

Schneiderman stepped down as NY state attorney general this week just hours after reports women who accused him of hitting and slapping them. After he was elected president, Trump settled the Trump University litigation. There had been deep animus between Mr. Trump and Mr. Schneiderman ever since Mr. Schneiderman filed a $40 million civil fraud lawsuit against Trump University in August 2013.

Remember those old tweets from President Trump going after Eric Schneiderman and calling him "worse than Spitzer or Weiner"? "'Unfortunately, I had to advise this woman against reporting the incident to the Manhattan District Attorney Office" due to what he said was it past experience ignoring 'political corruption'.

The court documents were filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of NY on Friday.

Joined by her attorney Michael Avenatti, porn actress Stormy Daniels sat down with the co-hosts of "The View" on April 17, 2018, for her first live television interview, joined in studio by her attorney Michael Avenatti.

Citing the letter Cohen wrote to Judge Wood on May 9, Gleason said it "raises concerns of what appears to be reckless behavior on the part of Mr. Avenatti, particularly in the event his client should be given leave to intervene".

Schneiderman's lawyer, Isabelle Kirshner, declined to comment.

Known for his zealous pursuit of the Trump administration and political corruption generally, Schneiderman suffered a precipitous fall from power this week after The New Yorker quoted three women, two of them on the record, as saying that he physically abused them.
