On Monday, news broke that Trump wanted to review documents seized in the FBI raid of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. A federal judge has denied the request.

Attorneys for both Cohen and Trump submitted written requests to review documents and electronic devices that were seized from Cohen’s property. This is likely to prepare for damage control. Trump is unsure what evidence Cohen may have stored that can be used against him.

The requests stated that they wanted to review which evidence would fall under attorney-client privilege and which wouldn’t.

Judge Kimba Wood told the attorneys that she has faith in Southern District prosecutors doing that for them.

“I have faith in the Southern District prosecutors, that their integrity is unimpeachable,” said Judge Wood.



Judge Wood also explained that reviews by the Trump and Cohen legal teams would slow the process, and she wants it to move as quickly as possible.

Prosecutors told the court that they will consult with the FBI and report back on how many records there are.
