Prosecutors: The Cohen-Related Probe Is Still Active

Buzzfeed News reports:

Federal prosecutors in New York confirmed Thursday that the investigation that resulted in guilty pleas by President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen remains active, as does the grand jury involved in the investigation.

In a filing that opposes the efforts by news media outlets to unseal search warrants that were executed against Cohen this spring, federal prosecutors in New York argued that making the documents public would reveal details of the ongoing investigation.

“This request encompasses materials that, if disclosed, would reveal a substantial amount of non-public, sensitive detail about an ongoing grand jury investigation, as well as information about numerous uncharged third parties,” lawyers from the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York wrote in the filing.
