Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's longtime personal attorney, was present in court on Monday, after being ordered by a federal judge to show up for hearing stemming from an FBI raid on his properties last week.
Cohen and his attorneys sought to prevent federal prosecutors from examining materials seized by the FBI during the raid. The office of the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York has been conducting a criminal investigation related to Cohen's business dealings.
Cohen's communications with Trump and Cohen's other clients were also reportedly seized by the FBI. Both Cohen's and Trump's lawyers have asked a judge to block the Justice Department from reviewing the confiscated materials, due to concerns about attorney-client privilege. The judge denied that request on Monday.
Stormy Daniels, the porn star who Cohen paid $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement over Daniel's claim that she had a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006, was also in court. She was not a party to the proceedings on Monday, but photographers stumbled all over themselves to get pictures of her.
