Federal agents executed “a series of search warrants” on President Donald Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, according to Cohen’s lawyer.
“Today the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York executed a series of search warrants and seized the privileged communications between my client, Michael Cohen, and his clients,” Cohen’s lawyer, Stephen Ryan, said in a statement. “I have been advised by federal prosecutors that the New York action is, in part, a referral by the Office of Special Counsel, Robert Mueller.”
The special counsel’s office and the US attorney’s office in Manhattan declined to comment on the move, which was first reported by the New York Times.
