Trump lawyer defends posting picture of daughter in underwear online
One of President Donald Trump's personal lawyers, who posted a picture of his daughter wearing lingerie from a modelling shoot, has hit back at critics on Twitter.
Michael Cohen posted the picture on Sunday night of daughter Samantha Blake Cohen wearing a black bra and tights.
He wrote: "So proud of my Ivy League daughter...brains and beauty channelling her Edie Sedgwick," a reference to the pioneering model and actress.

Some Twitter users responded to the post by calling it inappropriate.
Mr Cohen fired back by calling one user a "hater" and explaining that his daughter was recreating a famous Sedgwick pose.
He asked another critic if she was jealous.
Mr Cohen is a former Trump Organisation executive who served as a cable television surrogate for the Republican during the presidential campaign.
