Following an FBI raid on his home, hotel room and office, President Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen filed for a temporary restraining order from the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York to prevent federal investigators from reviewing material seized in the raid. Cohen is also requesting that the court allow his attorneys to review the seized material prior to investigators to ensure that the government does not review material covered by attorney-client privilege. The government has filed an opposition to Cohen's motion.
