An attorney who said he was contacted by two separate women over the course of a year about alleged assault at the hands of former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has said in a court filing in the Southern District of New York that he had communications with Michael Cohen, after an intermediary reached out on his behalf to President Donald Trump.

Private attorney Peter Gleason has now filed a letter in the proceedings related to the government’s raid on Cohen’s offices and home in April. Gleason is asking the judge for an order of protection over any material now in the government’s possession “regarding [Gleason's] discussions with Mr. Cohen concerning two women that were sexually victimized by Mr. Schneiderman.”
