Cohen lawyer Todd Harrison, sitting to his client's right, said they had received 3.7 million files from the government to review, and had processed 1.3 million of them.

"You won't be able to make use of this courtroom as a platform", Choose Wooden mentioned. "I can't management what you do exterior".

But it was Michael Avenatti, attorney for adult film actress Stephanie Clifford aka Stormy Daniels, who ended up taking up most of the time.

Upon leaving the courthouse in lower Manhattan, Cohen - who also has the Fox TV star Sean Hannity as a client - did not reply to a shouted question about whether he meant to cooperate with prosecutors. "That is concerning the aggrandizement of a single lawyer".

Cohen and his attorney's "are hell bent on continuing to hide the truth from the American people", Avenatti told reporters after court.

Avenatti denied doing something improper and complained about audio recordings of a dialog between Cohen and Daniels' prior lawyer Keith Davidson that had been leaked to the Wall Road Journal.
