FBI Raids President's Personal Lawyer's Office And Home

Michael Cohen personal attorney for US President Donald Trump

Just days after the FBI's unnannounced Monday raid on President Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen's home, office and hotel room, a federal court in NY has scheduled a hearing in the matter, Fox News has learned.

Cohen's lawyer, Stephen Ryan, said in a statement that federal prosecutors in New York City obtained a search warrant after receiving a referral "in part" from special counsel Robert Mueller. They claim it's protected by attorney-client privilege.

He went on to say he is confident Cohen will "fold like a cheap deck of cards".

An unidentified Trump adviser told the outlet that Cohen, who has worked with Trump for decades, had a "proclivity to make tapes" of private conversations and store them digitally.

Attorney-client privilege allows clients to discuss their legal troubles with lawyers, protecting them from being incriminated by said correspondence.

Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Daniels, suggested at one of the hearings that his client might be the subject of some of the seized materials, and her interests needed protection as well.

In the filing with a court in NY, prosecutors blacked out a section describing what crime they believe Trump attorney Michael Cohen has committed. 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. On Tuesday, he tweeted that "attorney-client privilege is dead!"

The FBI confiscated Cohen's emails, tax documents and business letters, as well as the communication between Cohen's clients, including Trump.

President Donald Trump's personal attorney is trying to prevent the government from using materials it found in a search of his office and residence this week.

It is unclear what evidence investigators are looking for, although they are evidently interested in the details surrounding the $130,000 payment that Cohen has admitted he made to pornographic actress Stephanie Clifford (better known by her stage name Stormy Daniels) and possibly payments made to former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal to see whether these payment violated campaign finance laws.

FBI and Justice Department officials in Washington and NY have refused to discuss the case publicly or say what crimes they are investigating, but people familiar with the investigation have told The Associated Press the search warrant used in the raids sought bank records, business records on Cohens dealing in the taxi industry, Cohens communications with the Trump campaign and information on payments made to a former Playboy model and a porn actress who say they had affairs with Trump. Trump has called the raids a "witch hunt" and "an attack on our country".

The warrants also sought business records on Cohen's dealings in the taxi industry, the person said.

Spokesman Jordan Prince said in an email late Thursday that a hearing is set for Friday morning.

But a source said it was Cohen's "standard practice" to play recordings for the president that he'd made of other top advisers.
