Judge Rejects Trump Request to Review Seized Files

“A federal judge on Monday rejected an attempt by President Trump and his longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to block prosecutors in Manhattan from reviewing a trove of materials seized in F.B.I. raids last week on Mr. Cohen’s office, home, hotel room and safe deposit box,” the New York Times reports.

“But feeling her way toward a resolution of the clash involving Mr. Trump and prosecutors investigating Mr. Cohen, the judge, Kimba Wood, signaled that she was considering appointing a special master to assist prosecutors if and when they cull through documents seized in the raids.”
