'So ordered': Court grants Trump request to intervene in Michael Cohen case

Donald Trump lawyer Michael Cohen is under criminal investigation   The FBI and Justice Department are looking into his finances

Federal investigators in NY are looking into years' worth of Cohen's business dealings, as well as lawyering he did for Trump as his longtime personal attorney, fixer, and confidant.

Federal prosecutors revealed Friday that Cohen has been under grand jury investigation for months related to his personal business dealings.

Whatever the state of their relationship, Trump and Cohen's lawyers went to court Friday in an effort to block the Justice Department from reading seized documents, and although Cohen was not technically required to be there, a judge seemed upset that he didn't appear.

In their filing, lawyers with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan described Cohen's request to screen seized materials as overly broad and said it the "belies the true intent of his motion: to delay the case" and keep evidence out of prosecutors' hands.

On Tuesday, he tweeted that "attorney-client privilege is dead!"

There was no discussion of recordings during a court hearing on Friday to argue over Cohen's filing of a temporary restraining order that seeks to suppress the evidence gathered in the raid.

Judge John Brown continued Lowman's bail at $500,000; his next court date is an omnibus hearing scheduled for April 26. Police say numerous images on Snide's computer were of a sexually violent nature, with children being bound and gagged.

"[Reviews of the records] indicate that Cohen is in fact performing little to no legal work, and that zero e-mails were exchanged with President Trump", according to the brief, filed in Manhattan federal court. A judge granted that request late Friday. Russian Federation and Trump have both denied allegations of collusion, and the Kremlin has called accusations that it interfered in the election "absurd".

Federal authorities did not specify exactly what they're investigating, but reports after his hotel, office, and home were raided suggest authorities are looking at potential bank fraud, wire fraud, and campaign finance violations.

Cohen had already notified US District Court in Los Angeles on Thursday that he meant to request a stay in Daniels' lawsuit against him and Trump "on the grounds that an ongoing criminal investigation overlaps with the facts of this case". Davidson said Cohen argued that the women had waived attorney-client privilege by going public with their stories. "Beyond that, I don't have anything else to add", Sanders said.

Cohen wants Wood to let them or a "special master" review the seized materials to decide what can be turned over, without violating the right of his clients to shield communications with their lawyers. Avenatti said he thinks that some of the documents obtained from the Cohen search relate to his client.

In any case, as previously reported, all seized materials are subject to review by a special "taint team" (make your own joke) to make sure they're not protected.

A full hearing is set for Monday on Cohen's petition.
