Trump's personal lawyer to challenge seizure of documents during Federal Bureau of Investigation raid

15 April 2018

Cohen's attorney has said the search was carried out on behalf of the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan in part because of a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Cohen, President Trump's personal lawyer, in Manhattan on Wednesday. "He has an acute interest in those proceedings and the manner in which these materials are reviewed", Hendon told the court.

Investigators who raided the office of President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, were reportedly searching for records related to the 2005 "Access Hollywood" tape that briefly crippled the Trump campaign in 2016, The New York Times reports.

"His attorney-client privilege is no greater than any other person who seeks legal advice", he said.

Mr. Cohen, you said you're not anxious at all?

Mr Cohen is heading to court on Friday in an attempt to prevent the investigators from using material seized in the raids.

The FBI warrant's specific reference to Trump is the first known direct mention of the President in a search warrant, and the sources said it appeared in connection with "Access Hollywood".

Previous reports indicated the Federal Bureau of Investigation took documents and other materials from Cohen in relation to the payment he made to an adult film actress who claimed she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.

Federal prosecutors argued the government's "taint team" could make the determination on what items would pass muster. Sources who've seen the warrants say it appeared to them that the real target of the raids was President Trump.

Clifford's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, was in the audience for the court session and asked the judge to be heard at 2 p.m.

He urged the UN Security Council to agree on establishing an inquiry that would identify the perpetrators of chemical attacks. Terming any use of chemical weapons as "abhorrent", the United Nations head said: "The suffering it causes is horrendous".

Avenatti's interest was in whether the seized documents applied in any way to his client.

Those confidentiality rules can be set aside under certain circumstances if investigators have evidence that a crime has been committed.

The disclosure comes a day after it was revealed that the authorities also sought documents from Mr. Cohen related to payments made to two women who claim they had affairs with Mr. Trump, Karen McDougal and Stephanie Clifford, as well as information on the role of the publisher of The National Enquirer in silencing the women.

The probe into Cohen, which was referred by Special Counsel Robert Mueller to the US attorney's office for the Southern District of NY, appears to be focused in part on the lawyer's involvement with payments made to two women who alleged affairs with Trump.

Rumors continue to swirl whether Trump will fire Mueller or Rod Rosenstein, but so far the White House has not confirmed that.
