Trump asks judge to stop feds reviewing Cohen's files

The United States President Donald Trump's lawyers asked a federal judge to stop prosecutors from reviewing documents seized in attorney Michael Cohen's office and home, saying the Department of Justice cannot fairly evaluate them.

Trump's legal team also said that he should review those documents first to ensure his right to attorney-client privilege.

“The President, the public, and the government have a vital interest in ensuring the integrity of the privilege review process, and the taint team procedure is plainly inadequate to the task,” the lawyers wrote, reported Talking Points Memo.
