A lawyer for President Donald Trump sought in court on Friday to stop USA prosecutors from deciding what materials seized from his personal attorney can be used in a probe that began with a referral by investigators looking into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Attorneys for Cohen, Trump's longtime lawyer and confidant, sought the restraining order in hopes of getting the "first crack" at documents culled from their client's Rockefeller Center law office and hotel room.

The Cohen attorneys also want to see which, if any, of the documents might be excluded due to attorney-client privilege.

Of Trump, McKay said: "His attorney-client privilege is no greater than any other person who seeks legal advice". A federal judge will hear arguments concerning the search warrant used to obtain documents from attorney Michael Cohen's office and home earlier this week.
