Court Rejects Cohen’s Bid To Keep FBI Out Of His Files, Avenatti Says Cohen Threw Hannity Under The Bus

ABC News reports:

A federal judge rejected a request from President Donald Trump and his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for a temporary restraining order that would have kept federal prosecutors from reading files seized in raids last week.

Judge Kimba Wood said a government taint team can weed out privileged documents, but she left open the possibility an independent third party could play a role at a later time, in the interest of “the perception of fairness.”

“I have faith in the Southern District prosecutors, that their integrity is unimpeachable,” Wood said. Her ruling came at the end of a hearing attended by Cohen and Stormy Daniels, who sat feet apart but did not appear to interact.
