Trump called Cohen to ‘check in’ on him — and it might make his legal problems even worse

Published

on

Donald Trump reportedly called his recently-raided attorney Michael Cohen Friday — and according to some legal experts, it may make the president’s legal issues even worse.

The New York Times reported Friday that Trump called his longtime personal attorney to “check in” on him after the FBI raided the lawyer’s office and residences Monday. It’s unclear what else was discussed on the call, but the report noted that attorneys often “advise their clients not to talk to each other during investigations.” The Times also reported that both Trump and Cohen “still were trying to determine what exactly was seized.”

The Times reported on the call soon after news broke that the Southern District of New York’s warrant to search Cohen indicates that he’s “under criminal investigation.” The call from the president came as Cohen, along with his own attorney, went to federal court to halt the FBI from reviewing the documents they seized from him.
