Judge rejects Trump's bid to block access to Cohen materials

Judge rejects Trump's bid to block access to Cohen materials | 16 April 2018 | A federal judge dealt a blow to Michael Cohen, the president's personal lawyer, in a closely watched court decision on Monday afternoon. Judge Kimba Wood of federal District Court in Manhattan denied an attempt by Cohen and President Trump to stop prosecutors from reviewing the materials that the FBI seized from his office, home and hotel room last week, according to multiple reports. Cohen's legal team had asked for a temporary restraining order so that they could review the files and then turn over to prosecutors those that were "responsive, non-privileged items" -- a request the government called unprecedented. But in a victory for Cohen, Wood did order the government to create a database of what was taken from Cohen and share it with his legal team, according to The Associated Press.
