Michael Cohen plans to keep quiet for once.

President Trump’s personal lawyer will reportedly assert his Fifth Amendment right to remain silent in the lawsuit that porn star Stormy Daniels filed against him.

Cohen said in a court filing that he is making the move on advice of his counsel in the midst of an ongoing criminal investigation by the US attorney for the Southern District of New York, according to The Hill.

Earlier this month the feds raided Cohen’s office and hotel room, partially to obtain documents related to a payment he made to Daniels on behalf of Trump.

Daniels is suing Cohen for defamation after he called her a liar in the press.

Cohen claims he paid Daniels $130,000 out of his own pocket shortly before the 2016 election as part of an agreement to keep quiet about an affair with Trump.
