Federal Bureau of Investigation agents seized Trump lawyer's recordings of conversations in raid

A hearing has been scheduled before U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood to address President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen's request for a temporary restraining order related to the judicial warrant that authorized a search of his Manhattan office, apartment and hotel room this week.

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

"In the process of asking for that, they have to demonstrate why it is likely evidence of a crime", said Jennifer Rodgers, a former federal prosecutor who is executive director of Columbia Law School's Center for the Advancement of Public Integrity. According to the Times, Trump called Cohen on Friday to "check in", which is probably not wise for a president to do when it involves an associate under federal investigation - especially if that president's associate has a habit of recording conversations. But the fact that the agents were seeking documents related to the tape reveals a new front in the investigation into Mr. Cohen that is being led by the United States attorney's office in Manhattan.

The Cohen attorneys also want to see which, if any, of the documents might be excluded due to attorney-client privilege.

The Justice Department said Friday that Cohen is part of a criminal investigation.

The new details could explain why Trump was so incensed about the raid.

In a footnote, prosecutors wrote that although the investigation was referred to prosecutors by Mueller, it was proceeding independently.

The search warrant also reportedly sought communications between Cohen and campaign aides about possible sources of negative publicity before the election.

None of those emails, they added, was exchanged with Trump.

Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti was also in the courtroom.

"We have every reason to believe that some of the documents seized relate to my client", he said. He then followed with a suggestive tweet that "the weather forecast for Monday looks very Stormy". Daniels was paid $130,000 during the 2016 campaign.

White House officials declined to comment.
