According to report from New York, documents were seized on April 9 from Michael Cohen's office and from his New York hotel room, as part of a series of investigations examining some of his actions. Meanwhile at first, the documents had been linked to the payment of $130,000 by Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels Stephanie Clifford in exchange for her keeping silent about the affair she allegedly had with Trump in 2006.
Sources added that Cohen's attorneys went to court to try and prevent prosecutors from examining the documents, something that was temporarily rejected by Judge Kimba Wood at a hearing on Monday. Meanwhile Judge Wood, however, left the door open to naming a special mediator and to reviewing the possibility that the documents could harm the attorney-client privilege.
Moreover among the materials seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation agents are assorted documents on a number of legal matters and the hard drives from computers in Cohen's office. Furthermore during the hearing, the identity of a third person Fox News political commentator Sean Hannity was also revealed. Media reports that Hannity is considered to be one of Trump's closest advisers outside the administration and Cohen has been under investigation for months for possibly committing election finance infractions and bank fraud.
