President Trump’s lawyers argued Friday that records seized by the FBI from Trump’s personal lawyer’s office are protected by attorney-client privilege, according to The Associated Press.
The Trump team made its case before a federal judge during a hearing in Manhattan. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen is seeking a temporary restraining order to block federal investigators from using the records seized during the raid of his office Monday.
The article goes on to state the following:
Lawyers for both Cohen and Trump said they wanted to review the records seized before federal prosecutors begin examining them.
An attorney for Trump also told the judge that the president has “an acute interest in this matter.”
