Trump Hits Back=> Opposes Allowing Government to Review Seized Materials From Cohen Raid in New Court Filing

On Monday, FBI KGB agents raided the office of one of Trump’s personal lawyers Michael Cohen at the request of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

They were looking for dirt on Stormy Daniels and seized attorney-client privileged communications between Trump and Cohen.

It was revealed Wednesday that agents were also looking for records on the “Access Hollywood” tape.

President Trump was furious the politically motivated raid was imposing on his attorney-client privilege rights.

On Friday, President Trump was officially granted intervention in the Cohen case:

Buzzfeed legal reporter Geidner reported on Friday:

After several hearings were held on Cohen’s request and related issues throughout the day Friday, however, the matter was continued over to a 2 p.m. Monday hearing. In particular, Cohen’s lawyers were unable to answer several key questions on Friday, leading Wood to order Cohen to attend Monday’s hearing.

Before Monday’s hearing, Wood has asked Trump’s lawyers to present any additional arguments on his behalf by 9 p.m. Sunday and Cohen’s lawyers are to present their final arguments — and a list of Cohen’s clients (more on that to come) — by 10 a.m. Monday.

On Sunday, President Trump opposed allowing the government to review materials seized by FBI KBG agents in their raid of Michael Cohen’s properties in a court filing.
