A hearing on the search warrants used to raid the home, office and hotel room of Michael Cohen, President Trump’s personal attorney, has been scheduled for Friday morning in a Manhattan federal courthouse.

Judge Kimba Wood is presiding over the 10:30 a.m. ET hearing.


Stephen Ryan, Cohen’s attorney, said in a statement after news of the Monday raids broke that they were “inappropriate and unnecessary.”

The seizures of Cohen’s records — which included his communications with his clients, according to Ryan — were led by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, after a referral from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly approved of the move.
