Michael Cohen seeking to block probe of records seized by FBI

Longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen was due in Manhattan Federal Court to seek a temporary restraining order Friday involving documents and records seized by the FBI.

Cohen, the personal attorney to President Trump, wants a federal judge to block the investigators from reviewing or using the items seized during the raids this past Monday.

The federal agents reportedly collected emails, business documents and other records — some related to a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels.

The attorney’s Rockefeller Center office and a Park Ave. hotel room where Cohen was staying were both targeted by FBI agents with warrants.

Cohen, 51, came under investigation by Manhattan federal prosecutors based on a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating potential Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan dismissed the raid immediately after it occurred as “completely inappropriate and unnecessary.”

An infuriated Trump ripped into the raid as well, repeatedly denouncing it as disgraceful.

Daniels has publicly stated the payment was hush money to insure her silence about a 2006 affair with Trump.
