Trump lawyer Michael Cohen wants to stop US from using FBI seized material

Cohen has not been charged with a crime.

The 90-minute hearing before Manhattan U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood focused on a request from Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer, to have either his own team or a court-appointed special master take over from prosecutors the review of what materials seized from his office this week were protected by lawyer-client privilege.

Now, thanks to new court filings we have a better idea.

Agents collected electronic devices and documents in the raid. Previous search warrants allowed NY federal prosecutors to search multiple email accounts, the filing said.

Depending on what was discussed during the call, it could raise legal issues for Trump and Cohen. Afterwards, Avenatti said at a press conference that he wasn't surprised at Trump's interest in the case because longtime lawyer Cohen knew "where all the bodies were buried".

The FBI took the extraordinary step of raiding Cohen's property on Monday after the Manhattan US attorney's office received a referral from the special counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the Russian Federation investigation.

Mr Cohen and Mr Davidson did not immediate respond to requests for comment. In a footnote, the government stated that the Manhattan prosecutors' investigation "has proceeded independent from" Mueller's, and that suggestions that Mueller's team "drafted the search warrants is unfounded". Cohen frequently taped conversations with adversaries and opposing lawyers, according to the two people briefed.

It has been widely reported that among the targets are communications regarding payments made to Clifford and ex-Playboy model Karen McDougal, both of whom allegedly had affairs with Trump and signed non-disclosure agreements prior to the 2016 election.

Agents also sought records on Cohen's taxi business, CNN reported.

Cohen had already notified US District Court in Los Angeles on Thursday that he meant to request a stay in Daniels' lawsuit against him and Trump "on the grounds that an ongoing criminal investigation overlaps with the facts of this case". Defense attorneys typically advise clients under investigation to avoid speaking with one another.

Cohen was photographed outside the Loews Regency Hotel on Park Avenue in New York City on Friday.

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.

"Those searches have been executed and the evidence is locked down", Joanna Hendon, Trump's lawyer in the case, said Friday.

The Justice Department is asking for a so-called taint team to vet the material seized in the raids Monday, as is standard process.

Wood noted that she was concerned about what was potentially said in open court, since information about the underlying criminal investigation could potentially be exposed.
