Judge Kimba Wood set a June 15 deadline for Cohen's and Trump's lawyers to finish their review and has appointed a special master to vet their claims of privilege.

ABC News also reported the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid of Cohen's office and residence was related to a warrant involving his "personal business dealings and secret deals with alleged mistresses, media organizations and the 2016 presidential campaign". The ABC report has been corroborated by The New York Times and CNN. Trump and the Trump Organization intervened in the case and were also granted access to review the materials for potentially privileged items.

"It resulted in the unnecessary seizure of protected attorney-client communications between a lawyer and his clients".

As to why Cohen may feel compelled to cooperate with federal prosecutors, only Michael Cohen can say-but Ken White, a defense lawyer who makes a living off battling the government, gave us one idea.

The departure comes as attorneys in the case scramble to review more than 3.7 million documents seized in the April 9 raids of Mr. Cohen's home and office.

A spokesperson for Jolie tells ET that the "misleading leak" of these court docs "is not in the best interests of the children". It was also revealed that Jolie reads through her children's text messages and the judge has asked her to end that odd habit.

While Cohen has not been charged with a crime, he is the subject of an investigation by federal prosecutors of alleged wire fraud and other crimes.

National security lawyer Bradley P. Moss told Law&Crime earlier Wednesday that the Cohen news is a big deal for Trump. Mr. Cohen wants to hire a lawyer with close ties to the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office, the people said.

A source told the New York Daily News that Cohen is "very stressed out" about a potential indictment, and that "none of it is good". "But he also is fearful of making that public because of chances it further pushes Cohen toward SDNY".

"There's a lot of speculation about whether Mr. Cohen can pay Mr. Ryan's fees", the Fox Business correspondent continued.
