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

A federal judge denied an attempt by United States President Donald Trump's lawyers to stop prosecutors from reviewing the materials that the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized from the home, office and hotel room of Trump's attorney Michael Cohen, US media reported.

Trump's legal team and Cohen claimed the Department of Justice cannot fairly evaluate the documents seized and asked for Trump to review those document first to ensure his right to attorney-client privilege.

The judge expressed faith the US attorney’s office handling the case and ordered the government to create a database of what was taken from Cohen and share it with his legal team.
