Trump's 2013 Tweet About Schneiderman Makes Sense Now

The unusual letter was sent to U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood, who is overseeing a legal dispute between federal prosecutors and Cohen's attorneys over the material seized in a raid last month of Cohen's office and residences. That same day, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents raided Cohen's home, office, and hotel room seeking records pertaining to a hush payment Cohen negotiated just before the 2016 election to a woman who claims she had an affair with Trump.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, leaves federal court in NY on April 16, 2018. Gleason recounted that Cohen told him that if Trump "were to run for and be elected governor of NY, he would help bring to light the women's accusations" against Schneiderman.

"Mr. Gleason has no idea what he is talking about regarding my behavior and appears to be doing the bidding for Mr. Cohen and Mr. Trump", Avenatti said.

According to Gleason, this included contacts between him and Cohen about 'two women that were sexually victimized by Mr. Scheinderman'. "Just to be clear: not one source for our story on Schneiderman has any ties to Trump or Michael Cohen".

In a tweet on September 11, 2013, Trump took aim at Schneiderman while also referring to NY politicians who'd resigned over allegations of sexual misconduct, Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer.

Days later, Trump, who at the time was being sued by Schneiderman over Trump University, tweeted about Schneiderman - saying he would be the next politician to fall from grace. Cohen now is under criminal investigation by federal prosecutors in NY.

"Mr. Dunleavy did indeed discuss this very matter with Mr. Trump as evidenced by a phone call I received from Attorney Michael Cohen", Gleason writes in the filing.

Gleason, who is based in the New York City suburb of Mahopac, says the first woman to come to him with allegations against Schneiderman did so in 2012. He is the focus of a criminal investigation in the Southern District of NY into whether he violated campaign-finance laws or committed bank fraud. The letter does not explicitly state the timeline of these events, but Schneiderman had brought a lawsuit against Trump in 2013 that accused the real estate mogul of defrauding customers of his seminar series Trump University.

Eliot Spitzer resigned as governor of NY after his dalliance with a prostitute was revealed. Wait and see, worse than Spitzer or Weiner, ' wrote Trump.

The filing of Gleason's letter marked an extraordinary convergence of two of the moment's most explosive news stories: the abrupt demise of Schneiderman, who quit his job Monday amid allegations that he had physically assaulted four former girlfriends, and the case of Cohen, who is under investigation for potentially having broken the law by trying to suppress negative coverage of Trump in the run-up to the 2016 election.

Avenatti is seeking to be heard on a regular basis by Wood on the issue of the confidentiality of some of Cohen's files.

Correction: The headline on an earlier version of this story misspelled the name of Eric Schneiderman.
