Criminal probe is focusing on Trump lawyer's 'personal business dealings'

Among the documents seized during an Federal Bureau of Investigation raid targeting President Donald Trump's personal attorney are recordings of conversations Michael Cohen had with the former lawyer to two women who claim to have had affairs with Trump, according to a CNN report.

Cohen sued in federal court in NY to block prosecutors from accessing files seized from his office and residence in an FBI raid on Monday.

Trump complained this week after the Cohen raid that the FBI's actions meant attorney-client privilege was "dead" and that he was the victim of a "TOTAL WITCH HUNT!"

"The searches are the result of a months-long investigation into Cohen and seek evidence of crimes, many of which have nothing to do with his work as an attorney, but rather relate to Cohen's own business dealings".

Investigators have also looked for a possible broader pattern of fraud, tax evasion, money laundering and other crimes in Cohen's private dealings, including his work for Trump and real estate purchased by Russian buyers, the person said.

Cohen is asking for the right to review the documents before investigators do, so he can determine if any information was covered by attorney-client privilege. Trump has denied their accusations.

Cohen's Manhattan office was raided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Monday. Cohen told ABC News the operation was "respectful" and "courteous", but the agents carted away documents and Cohen's electronic devices.

Investigators can examine attorney-client work that falls within the purview of the Cohen criminal probe, but a separate Justice Department review is typically required in order to protect attorney-client privilege.
