Trump Attorney Trying To Stop Feds From Reviewing Records Seized In Raids

The raid itself was executed by the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of NY, which is now led by Trump appointee Geoffrey Berman.

A USA prosecutor on Friday attacked a claim by President Donald Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen that numerous materials seized this week in FBI raids on Cohen's office and home as part of a criminal investigation should remain private.

Michael Cohen should've dropped the mic.

"The S.D.N.Y.is tooled up to execute such raids, whereas the special counsel's office sitting in D.C. would face logistical challenges in trying to do it themselves", Katyal said. She says she had an affair with Trump. But he indicated in a late afternoon tweet Tuesday that he and his client would "fully cooperate with any search for the truth".

Hendon is so far only known to be representing Trump in the matter involving Cohen.

"He is the president of the United States", she said. "You offer reasons or evidence to support why each one of those things will be found in the location, and why those things are relevant to an ongoing investigation", which means investigators would have had to outline why communications between Trump and Cohen were pertinent to the investigation and possibly did not fall under attorney-client privilege.

Herndon, Trump's lawyer, said that after the process is resolved, the ultimate outcome on what documents are deemed unprivileged may produce new litigation.

The raids followed a referral by US Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who for almost a year has been looking into whether Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

It was not carried out by Mr. Mueller's team, but rather handed off to the normal Justice Department chain of command, and carried out by agents and prosecutors from the Southern District of NY.

Sources said, according to the warrant, investigators sought records related to Cohen's interactions with adult-film star Stormy Daniels, who claims she had a one-night stand with Trump in 2006, and Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claims they had a 10-month affair from 2006 to 2007. "And I think it's a disgrace".

Trump blasted the Mueller team as "the most conflicted group of people I've ever seen", labeling majority Democrats and saying the few Republicans had worked for President Barack Obama.

A federal judge is ordering President Donald Trump's personal lawyer to appear next week for arguments over the government's raid on the lawyer's New York City home and office.

Under Justice Department regulations, Trump cannot directly fire Mueller, but could order Rosenstein or his successor to remove the special counsel.

Avenatti told reporters after the Friday morning hearing that he had no doubt the materials seized include documents concerning the negotiations with Daniels, which is the subject of a lawsuit filed by her against Cohen and Trump in Los Angeles. "And anyone who has ever hired a lawyer a close third", she said.

ABC News has learned that Monday's raids also took place after special counsel Robert Mueller uncovered information about potentially criminal conduct.

Before the adjournment, lawyers for Trump and Cohen told a federal judge in NY that they believe some of the documents and devices seized from Cohen during an FBI raid are protected by attorney-client privilege, and they want a chance to review the material before prosecutors get to examine them. First, the recordings would be reviewed by a separate Justice Department team and possibly by a federal judge.
