Trump Lawyer Cohen Reportedly Seeking Restraining Order Over FBI Raids

President Donald Trump's personal attorney reportedly wants a federal judge to stop investigators from using information obtained during FBI raids on his office, hotel room and home.

According to several reports, Michael Cohen is looking to get a temporary restraining order in response to the warrant that authorized the searches, which took place earlier this week. 

Outlets say a hearing to address Cohen's restraining order request is scheduled for Friday.

During the raids, agents reportedly collected emails, tax documents and business records — including information about a payment made to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels.

It's unclear what the FBI was looking for. But Cohen's lawyer told The New York Times the FBI searched Cohen's office, at least in part, because of a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller. It doesn't appear the raid was directly tied to Mueller's investigation.
