Trump lawyer Michael Cohen tries to prevent use of materials found in FBI raid
U.S. President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is seeking a temporary restraining order regarding searches of Cohen’s home and office by FBI agents on Monday, a Justice Department spokesman said on Friday.
Such an order would be sought to stop the government from using seized materials, according to a person familiar with the investigation.
A hearing on the searches has been set for 10:30 a.m. (1430 GMT) in a Manhattan federal court, the courthouse said.
When reached by phone, a lawyer for Cohen was not immediately available for a request to comment.
