Avenatti asks for release of Cohen recordings

"I don't know if we can make that", Ryan told Wood, who stuck to the deadline despite the objections from Cohen's team.

Prosecutors investigating Cohen are turning items over to Cohen's defense team.

A prosecutor revealed that the contents of a shredder and two Blackberry devices were all that remained to be turned over to a court-appointed special master, who is screening evidence to determine what is covered by attorney-client privilege.

Michael Cohen's legal team says dossier released by Stormy Daniels" lawyer includes information about other people named Michael Cohen; reaction on "The Ingraham Angle'.

Meanwhile, Avenatti has asserted that Cohen and his legal team are leaking audio recordings related to Daniels that were seized in the Federal Bureau of Investigation raids on Cohen's home and office.

He previously filed a motion to weigh in on this case, too.

Wood told Avenatti that while he is free to speak his mind now, he would have to end his "publicity tour" and attacks on Cohen if he became part of the case.

In the recent dust-up with the Journal, Avenatti said he was completely cooperating with federal authorities regarding the investigation into Cohen, and that he and Daniels would continue cooperating.

Avenatti defended against the bankruptcy issue by bringing up President Trump's own history of bankruptcies, noting, "Trump has had his own fair share of bankruptcies over the years and those haven't disqualified him". Prosecutors called that an "unreasonable delay".

"He's now just admitted, and he tripped himself up, he's just admitted that, in fact, Michael Cohen represented him in connection with the Stormy Daniels situation", he said of the president's comment.

Ryan further argued that Avenatti should be barred from the proceedings by pointing out that Avenatti's former law firm was ordered by a bankruptcy court last week to pay $10m to a former partner.

Ryan at one point seemed critical of what he called "a very odd thing going on" between prosecutors and Avenatti, who claimed he had a good working relationship with the government lawyers and that he knew the lawyers and the Federal Bureau of Investigation had not leaked the audio. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has also filed suit against Cohen, claiming a non-disclosure agreement she struck with Trump is null and void.

Avenatti admitted he had no concrete proof of that claim, but he said the existence of the recordings should be considered a red flag.

"We've got a whole host of information that we are going to be releasing relating to Mr. Cohen and relating to Mr. Trump, so they better buckle up", he said.

On Fox News Wednesday night, Giuliani twisted this into a claim that Avenatti was thrown out of court by the judge because he was unethical and a liar.

She said that more than a million items from three seized phones had also been designated as not privileged by Cohen and Trump, and would be turned over to prosecutors Wednesday after a final review.

Ryan told a judge that Avenatti should not be able to participate in a review over whether the materials fall under attorney-client privilege.

While Avenatti commanded most of the court's attention, the government and Cohen's attorneys did update the court on their progress.
