>> Federal prosecutors pieced together 16 pages of shredded documents, after raiding the home, office, and hotel room of President Trump's former lawyer, Michael Cohen, in April. In a court filing Friday, prosecutors also said FBI agents extracted more than 700 pages of encrypted messages on phones seized from Cohen during the raids.
The filing coming after President Trump distanced himself from his former attorney on Friday.>> I always liked Michael, but I haven't spoken to Michael in a long time.>> Is he still your lawyer?>> No he's not my lawyer.>> A source familiar with the investigation told Reuters in April that prosecutors are investigating Cohen for possible crimes related to his business dealings.
A probe that stems from a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who's investigating possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. The roughly 3.7 million files seized during the April raids are now being reviewed by a former federal judge, to determine what is protected by attorney-client privilege. Also on Friday, Cohen lost his bid for a gag order against Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti to stop Avenatti from talking about him in media appearances.
