Michael Cohen seeks to keep about 12,000 seized documents from prosecutors

Michael Cohen seeks to keep about 12,000 seized documents from prosecutorsBy Brendan Pierson NEW YORK (Reuters) – Michael Cohen, a longtime personal lawyer to U.S. President Donald Trump, is seeking to prevent prosecutors from reviewing about 12,000 files out of more than four million seized by authorities as part of a criminal investigation. Cohen’s lawyers said in a filing in Manhattan federal court on Monday that they had finished their review of the files and concluded that “over 12,061″ were shielded from prosecutors’ review because they were privileged attorney-client communications or legal work done in preparation for litigation. A court-appointed special master, former federal judge Barbara Jones, will review Cohen’s claims of privilege.
